Haakon County Commission districts realigned
by Nancy Haigh Some Haakon County residents will be heading to the polls in new locations as the Haakon County Commission outlined new districts last Tuesday, December 27. Every 10 years, following the U. S. Census, states, counties and cities have to adjust their voting districts and precincts if the population has shifted. Each area must reflect as equal of a representation as possible, below a 10 percent deviation from the ideal for total population and for total voting age population. The ideal is each district being the same number of residents. The current set-up showed a 50.38 percent deviation in total population and 62.13 percent for voting population. In November the Central South Dakota Enhancement District, of which Haakon County is a member, sent the commission six options. At the request of the commission two more options were made. The board discussed the options at their year-end meeting and then held a public hearing on the issue that evening. Of the eight options, none met the board’s approval. While all but one met both percentages, they made odd or unwieldy districts. Some options left a commissioner out of a district, putting two commissioners in one district. At the hearing, Al Haugen, from CSDED, worked with the board to come up with a workable layout. With this option the total population deviation is 5.68 percent and for the voting age population, 7.31 percent.

by Del Bartels Scotchman Industries in Philip has acquired its newest piece of industrial technology, a Trumpf Trulaser 3030 and its accompanying Trubend press brake 5170. Three transporting semi-trucks and a crane required for unloading arrived at Scotchman in the night before opening time Friday, December 30. That began an all-day operation of unloading and positioning $1.2 million worth of laser technology. The machines are from the Trumpf, Inc. manufacturing plant in Hartford, Conn. The laser can be programmed to cut up to one inch thick steel. It can cut thinner plates of material at a speed of 300 inches per minute. Though Scotchman has its needs of two inch steel processed elsewhere, the new laser can handle most of what Scotchman needs done in-house. Scotchman Industries is beginning to purchase five foot by 10 foot raw plate material of steel. Jerry Kroetch, president of Scotchman Industries, said that the company, “Sold some other equipment internally and moved some other internal equipment to make room. We brought in three new employees in the last 60 days, and once everything is settled, so to speak, we may need at least one more.” Jason Rhodes and JR Snyder have spent a total of four weeks in Harford, Conn., doing intensive training every other week for two months. “They will turn around and help train others to run the machinery,” said Kroetch. “Riggers unloaded and got the units set into place, and next week people from Connecticut will be in Philip to get the machines up and running for us,” said Kroetch. “We currently buy semi-loads of parts from other manufacturers, and now we are going to start doing that work internally. We spent $798,000 for the laser base and $250,000 for the press brake. We are going to have $1.2 million in it when all is said and done,” said Kroetch. Kroetch believed, barring any problems, the new industrial machinery would be fully functional in seven to 10 days. The laser can be programmed to load, take out completed parts and reload during the night unattended. The 10 foot wide press brake bends and even folds steel. Kroetch said that, though it cannot run unattended at night, “it is a pretty sophisticated piece of equipment.” Kroetch confirmed that Scotchman Industries makes sure that, for its larger purchases such as this one, all sales taxes go to the city of Philip, rather than to other places such as the state of origin. Trumpf, Inc. is the North American subsidiary of the Trumpf company based out of Germany. It meets the North American market needs in the areas of fabricating machinery, lasers, laser marking, electronics and medical technology. The TruLaser 3030 combines technology and high laser power. It uses one cutting head for all sheet thicknesses, which calls for minimal unproductive time. Its linear drive allows for increased speed. It uses an integrated pallet changer for sheet exchange. A conveyor removes the small amount of slag and small parts that are left over from the metal sheets. Both machines use touch screen control systems.

City ups sewer rates; next election after redistricting
2 I 2 779 260 I V 630 210
by Del Bartels During the year-end special meeting for the Philip City Council, Thursday, December 29, the council approved raising the sewer utility rates, effective May, 2012. All sewer users within the city limits will pay a minimum monthly fee of $15.50 for the first 2,000 gallons of water used. Three cents per gallon will be charged for every extra gallon up to 10,000 gallons. Every gallon above that will cost 1.5 cents. Users outside the city limits will pay $31 minimum, with the same amounts after that. The Clean Water State Revolving Fund program has determined that the previous rates charged by Philip were too low to qualify the city for any future loans. The council approved bond applications for improvements of storm water and sanitary sewer projects. These CWSRF bonds will be guaranteed repayment with second penny sales tax revenues. Councilwoman Shirley Chin voiced that citizens, particularly fixed-income seniors, don’t want more tax and utility increases. Councilman Michael Vetter said, “Nobody wants to pay more taxes ever.” He believed that such improvements draw the younger generations to Philip. Finance Officer
Monna Van Lint said, “If you don’t do improvements, the second cent sales tax income will go down because people will go elsewhere. Chin agreed and noted that the garbage collection costs are actually down since a few years ago, “That might soothe some feelings.” West River/Lyman-Jones Rural Water has approved the city of Philip’s request to amend the current water purchase agreement, reducing the daily contract amount to 500,000 gallons. The council approved the commercial garbage hauler’s licenses for 2012 for Heartland Waste Management and Waste Connections of South Dakota doing business as Walker Refuse. The council approved transferring $11,000 from the contingency fund to the general fund to clean up bookkeeping. Various amounts required for the 17 fund areas ranged from $50 for the airport telephone to $3,000 for the swimming pool engineering fees. The approved payment of bills included December’s salaries and benefits that totaled $41,053.04. This included $4,040 total for the mayor and council for the year. All other bills came to $95,597.94. These other bills included $2,545 in customer deposit refunds.
Cracker barrel in Kadoka, Jan. 16
A political cracker barrel has been scheduled for January 16 at the Great Hall at the school in Kadoka, starting at 4:30 p.m. Jim Bradford, South Dakota House of Representative member for District 27, has confirmed his attendance. Representatives Ed Iron Cloud III and Kevin Killer have also been invited. All three are members of the Democratic Party. Mark DeVries, a former representative and a Republican, will be the moderator. The evening will include coffee, snacks and a light supper. The South Dakota 2012 legislative session opens at noon, Tuesday, January 10. For more information, contact Jamie Hermann, chief executive officer for Kadoka Area School District 35-2.
The legal services contract with City Attorney Gay Tollefson has been renewed, effective January 1, 2012. The per month retainer fee was increased from $150 to $200. Above and beyond the retainer fee, she will be paid $80 per hour. The South Dakota Department of Legislative Audit has approved the city of Philip’s fiscal year 2010 audit. Year-end sales tax revenues for 2011 come to a total of over $395,861, which is 10.41 percent more than the previous year. The next municipal election will be combined with the school election, set for the second Tuesday in April, April 10, 2012. There will be only one polling place, room A-1 in the Philip High School. The following offices are up for election: Mayor, at-large – fouryear term, currently held by John F. Hart; Council, Ward I – one-year term, currently held by Jason Harry; Ward I – two-year term, vacancy created by redistricting; Ward II – two-year term, currently held by Mike Vetter; and Ward III – two-year term, currently held by John Kangas and Shirley Chin. These are a direct result of the city’s recent municipal redistricting. Circulation of nominating petitions may begin January 27. Petitions must be filed in the city finance office at the Haakon County Courthouse, between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., MST, no later than February 24 at 5:00 p.m. Matt Reckling, public works director, gave an update on the repairs on the 1986 Case W14B loader. “Still trying to get it in. I think we are better off waiting for the auction,” said Reckling. The council approved waiting for the repairs to be completed before offering the loader for sale through sealed bids or auction. Reckling also gave an update on
Lake Waggoner repairs as recommended by the South Dakota Department of Environment and Natural Resources. Estimates on the concrete work on the spillway range from $4,500 to $7,500. Work will be done when warmer weather allows. Three, possibly four, street lights along Highway 73 will be put into a program with the South Dakota Department of Transportation. The DOT will carry 80 percent of the ownership, thus will be that much more responsible if the poles have to be moved because of highway right of way. The three poles between the Philip Ambulance Service and Philip Motor Company will have to be replaced by September. Discussion was held on the city of Philip implementing its dog ordinance. The exact wording and enforcement of those ordinances were to be investigated before the next council meeting Tuesday, January 3, 2012. Other cities regulate the numbers of dogs kept on site and even the breeds of dogs that can be owned within the city limits. Councilman Jason Harry reported some larger dogs ramming into fences as people walk by on the sidewalk. He voiced concern about what if the fences were to give way, and that fences do not stop the continuous barking. Councilman Greg Arthur said, “Dogs are going to bark,” but there should be a limit to the nuisance. Chin, a dog owner, said, “If people are going to own dogs, they have to be responsible for them.” Currently, Police Chief Kit Graham gives verbal warnings for first time complaints and dogs at large. “It’s going to happen to anybody, once in a while a dog gets away,” said Graham. He has held neighborhood meetings to try to solve potential problems and neighbor discontent.
Zoning part of year-end meeting
by Nancy Haigh Planning and zoning, and wrapping up 2011 were agenda items at the Haakon County Board of Commissioners meeting Tuesday, December 27. Knutson said the first step is to develop a comprehensive plan. She said the purpose of the plan along with zoning is to grow in a planned manner, to keep the value of property up. “What you do affects your neighbor,” she said. Knutson said part of the zoning can regulate the size of ranchettes to a specific number of acres. It can also detail out road building, setbacks, height of structures, etc. Briggs said if the commission goes forward with this they will make the ag interest the priority. Snook said it is a big step for Haakon County. “It’s not that we don’t want to promote growth, just keep what we have,” said Konst. Knutson said the county could, “Save what you have without putting too many restrictions on everybody.” Following the public hearing in regards to supplementing the court appointed attorney fund, the board approved the $14,000 supplement. The approved warrants, including the $7,200 set aside for the Haakon County Conservation District. To close out the 2011 books the board approved a total of $22,600 in funds transferred from the contingency fund. The breakdown includes $1,500 for the auditor, $3,600 for the state’s attorney, $1,200 court appointed attorney, $2,700 courthouse, $6,500 register of deeds, $1,200 veterans service officer, $3,000 mentally ill, $2,300, library and $600, weed control. The board also approved a $40,000 transfer from road and bridge cash to the operating fund. O’Connell abstained from the discussion and vote. The board briefly discussed the Haakon County personnel handbook and the sheriff’s handbook. The board tabled further discussion until they could review the handbooks more and discuss sections with Haakon County State’s Attorney Gay Tollefson.

We can’t -wait to address the issues we face the livelihood
The administrator of the federal Risk Management Agency will discuss crop insurance and other farm programs Saturday, January 7 during the 26th annual meeting of the South Dakota Corn Growers Association at the Sioux Falls Convention Center. William Murphy, appointed administrator in 2009, will speak at one of four programs throughout the day. Other seminars will feature Mark Pearson, host of the syndicated TV show “Market to Market,” Brian Hefty of the TV show “Ag PhD” and the Hefty Seed Company, and Jolene Brown, an ag spokeswoman and professional speaker from Iowa. “Each year, a primary focus of our annual meeting is to bring in some of the industry’s top experts to provide information that South Dakota producers can use to improve their operations,” SDCGA President Gary Duffy, Oldham, said. “This year’s lineup will present a wealth of information on important topics, from markets to drainage, and from crop insurance to working together smoothly on a family farm.” The theme of this year’s meeting is Winter Wonderland. During the banquet, the SDCGA will present four annual awards – legislative appreciation, excellence in public outreach, excellence in agriculture and most valuable person in agriculture. More than 1,000 farmers, industry partners and legislators are expected to attend the annual meeting, which is one of the largest one-day agricultural events in South Dakota.

The banquet will feature awards presentations and a musical performance. John Mueller’s Winter Dance Party is a re-creation of the final tour of rock ‘n’ roll pioneers Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and the Big Bopper. and coming together with family. Yet it seems that the election cycle has started earlier than ever, and we are already bombarded with an avalanche of negative ads and heated rhetoric. It’s my hope that both sides can dial back the heated words and commit to solving the immense problems we face as we head into the New Year. Like many of you, I’m disappointed and frustrated by the tone coming out of Washington these days. Sometimes it seems that even the simplest legislative issues fall victim to party politics. But South majority in House of Representatives, while the Democrats control the Senate. A my-way-or-the-highway approach is a recipe for gridlock, and means that no measure will be able to make it to the president’s desk. Make no mistake, there will always be disagreements. But that doesn’t mean Washington should be disagreeable. I’ve always said that neither party has a monopoly on good ideas, and that remains true today. Since my earliest time representing our state in Washington, I’ve always pushed a good idea ahead of party affiliation. It’s no secret that it has been a tough year for many people across the country. Although South Dakota has not been hit as hard as other states, the national employment rate remains unacceptably high. If there is a single issue that unites people of both parties, it should be providing economic security for hardworking families. We need less infighting and more of a willingness to tackle the issues. I know that next year is an election year, but elected officials sim-
of hardworking families hangs in the balance. When Congress reconvenes next year, I will continue to bring some South Dakota common sense to Washington. In the meantime, just as families take a moment to pause and reflect with their loved ones, I’m looking forward to doing the same. Once Congress finishes up its work, politics will take a back seat to football and spending Christmas with members of my family.
Washington must change fiscal habits
by Senator John Thune Over the past several years, the federal government has spent at unsustainable levels, forcing the government to borrow trillions of dollars and accumulate a record level of debt. Our nation now faces a $15 trillion debt and each and every American’s share of this debt amounts to over $48,000. This dangerous fiscal situation should not come as a surprise as Washington’s reckless spending habits persist, despite dire warnings from economists, members of Congress, and the American people. In fact, the last fiscal year ended with a $1.3 trillion deficit and marked the third straight year with a deficit over $1 trillion. Not only is federal spending out of control, but the federal government's budget process is as well. The Senate has failed to pass a budget for the past three years. Because of this broken system, I voted against the nearly $1 trillion “omnibus” spending bill that was rushed through Congress in the final days before Christmas this year. The overall spending bills for fiscal year 2012 will exceed last year’s spending levels. The practice of cramming spending bills on members without providing sufficient time to review the details of massive spending packages or debate the merits of each bill individually has unfortunately becoming all too common. Congress has a responsibility to the nation to enact policies that will restore our country's fiscal health. That is why I have introduced legislation over the last two years that would make common-sense reforms to our budget process and rein-in runaway spending. My legislation would cut and cap spending, end trust fund dishonesty, and create a new permanent joint Congressional committee tasked with continuously cutting the deficit without raising taxes. One specific reform in my legislation would add teeth to the budget process by requiring Congress to pass a binding joint budget resolution that would require the president to sign the budget resolution into law, forcing Congress and the administration to work together to pass a budget. It would also require a biennial budget cycle in which Congress would pass budgets in odd-numbered years and focus on finding savings in even-numbered years. Under my proposal, if Congress failed to pass a biennial budget and appropriations bills on time, there would be an automatic two-year Continuing Resolution at the previous year’s spending levels. This reform proposal has received bipartisan support at the Budget Committee level and I will continue to push for its passage in the New Year, along with other budget reforms. America’s fiscal health is weak, but it is not too late to turn the ship around and enact serious, commonsense reforms that would control Washington’s spending and restore fiscal sanity. I will continue to be aggressive in pursuing such reforms in the New Year.
Support timely mail delivery
South Dakotans can voice their support for timely, six-day United States mail delivery by signing a petition in a campaign initiated by the South Dakota Newspaper Association. “Deliver the mail! South Dakotans for timely, six-day mail delivery” is a grass-roots campaign to demonstrate to the United States Postal Service and members of the state’s congressional delegation that South Dakotans oppose wholesale reductions in mail service and delivery. “South Dakota needs timely mail delivery. Our communities and our state’s economy depend on it,” said David Bordewyk, general manager for the South Dakota Newspaper Association. “The current proposals by the postal service to close mail processing centers and post offices and to end Saturday mail delivery would be very harmful to our state if fully implemented.” Residents can sign Deliver the Mail petition forms at their local newspaper office or by going online to www.deliverthemail.org. Bordewyk said the petitions are meant to impress USPS officials and members of our congressional delegation that South Dakotans want good mail delivery service. The names of those signing petitions will not be used for any other purposes. “Just like we depend on a good transportation infrastructure or a good electric utility grid in our state, we need a viable, successful postal service to help sustain and move our state’s economy,” Bordewyk said. "Closing mail processing centers and post offices and ending Saturday mail delivery would certainly be detrimental.” In South Dakota, the postal service wants to close mail processing centers in Huron, Aberdeen, Pierre and Rapid City, leaving only one processing center in the state (Sioux Falls). A mail processing center in Mobridge has already closed. The postal service also wants to close more than 80 post offices in the state. It is part of a nationwide plan by the postal service to consolidate its mail handling and delivery system in an effort to cut costs. As a result of the proposed consolidations, the postal service wants to slow its delivery standards from overnight delivery in many areas of the country to a two or three day delivery standard. The South Dakota Newspaper Association, based in Brookings, represents the state’s 132 weekly and daily newspapers.

New ethanol blender pump rule
Consumers are the winners under a new rule passed today by the South Dakota State Legislature’s Interim Rules Review Committee, according to South Dakota Farmers Union (SDFU) President Doug Sombke. The panel voted to give fuel retailers the chance to apply for grants to offset the cost of installing ethanol blender pumps. The pumps, which cost about $10,000 more than a traditional gasoline pump, dispense fuel with blends from E10 (10 percent ethanol), to E20, E30, and higher up to an E85 blend. “Farmers Union has long been a champion for increasing the number of blender pumps in the state, and I’m glad that our elected leaders are beginning to realize the benefits they can provide,” Sombke said. “We’ve worked for over a decade to educate retailers and consumers about blender pumps, and it’s great to hear the policies are being put into place to get more blender pumps in the marketplace. Consumers are the real winners here; they’ll have more choices at the pump. We’re confident that an increasing number of them will choose cleaner burning ethanol.” The new program will also eventually provide incentives for consumers to buy more flex-fuel vehicles which can burn higher levels of ethanol like E30, E50, and E85, along with the traditional E10 which can be burned in any vehicle. “This new rule will put two of the major pieces into place that we need to increase the use of ethanol,” Sombke said. “We need more retailers to sell ethanol, and we need more vehicles on the road that can burn it. This program will help increase both. In the end, we hope this will increase the market for the corn our farmers raise, create jobs in our rural communities and help the environment by allowing more consumers to burn cleaner fuel.”

This last New Year’s Day came on a Sunday, and most in-town businesses were closed on Monday so those employees could enjoy a traditional and anticipated day off. This may sound awkward to have the January 1st and 2nd to recover from New Year’s Eve, but it will probably turn out as a necessary big breath before the deep dive later on. The starting line was left a day later by the new year, and I, for one, am already feeling more than a day behind in the rat race. People are probably already feeling the financial squeeze of Christmas presents and holiday merry making, especially with tax season on its way and income tax withholding forms starting to hit the mail. The mail itself may be slow, with the United States Postal Service in a temporary limbo with the closings of the rural offices and distribution centers on hold. Then the mail will really be slow. Mega-stores and their return lines are not the place to be right now. For many businesses, the time between Black Friday and the end of the return time will determine if the next year will require only one notch or many notches to be tightened on the proverbial belt. As far as the schools are concerned, the classroom semester tests were taken before Christmas, though the first semester will not officially end until several days after the students return to school. The second semester will hold off until after the first weekend back, but then will hit full speed for winter sports, spring sports, school plays, prom and graduation. The high school basketball and wrestling teams had contests over Christmas break, a rare thing for our district. In nonschool sports, the hunting season for antlerless deer began before the end of the old year and will continue through January 8. The relatively mild winter so far could become a discouragement later for ranchers and farmers. The lack of snow is nice for now, but the lack of snow cover is drying out the area, and the few sprinkles of rain in December didn’t help all that much. If winter does ever really hit, calving could be a harsh way to start the new year. What to plant, and when, could be more of a guessing game than in most years. Do you sell your remaining hay to be trucked to the southern drought states, or do you hold on to it in case you might need it yourself? Construction and road repair projects are in a holding pattern. The county is watching every penny. The state is watching every penny. The housing market is watching every penny. I’d be happy to see a penny. It used to be that you can tell the age of a person by how small of a coin they would bother to stoop over to pick up. Now a penny on the sidewalk doesn’t stand a chance. I appreciate that the new year is here. I understand that every new year has its challenges. This new year, though, feels like a slow start to what will be a fast race. Just give me a little while to get my running shoes on.

– North Korean threat –
by Norris Preston past national vice-commander the American Legion United States Defense Secretary Leon Panetta branded North Korea a “serious threat” and has used harsh words before to describe North Korea during his first trip to Asia since taking over the pentagon in July. He described Pyongyang as “reckless” and that the North remained “a very serious threat.” A senior United States defense official, briefing reporters traveling with Panetta, said that it was important that military preparations be “aligned with where things are in the diplomatic process” given the cyclical nature of ties. “Our experience unfortunately has been that our North Korean friends go through cycles of diplomatic engagement and provocation and we need to be prepared for how that cycle may play itself out on the next turn,” the official said. With the death of North Korea’s Kim Jong-il and his son, Kim Jongun replacing, some experts warn that the succession of power could trigger provocations. That is a concern shared by Panetta. “I think we always have to be prepared, from a security point of view, to deal with the likelihood that as succession develops in North Korea that it could lead to greater provocations,” Panetta said. At every opportunity, Panetta has been reassuring allies sin the region that the U. S. military will maintain a strong posture in the Pacific despite looming defense spending cuts at home. This is particularly important in places like South Korea and Japan, where the United States has about 80,000 forces deployed and where U.S. allies are nervously watching China’s military buildup and increasing assertiveness in the South China Sea. Panetta said the United States withdrawal from Iraq and the gradual drawdown in Afghanistan would allow the United States to shift more attention to Asia. “All of the success we’ve had now gives us the opportunity to make sure we make the kind of invest6ment we need to make in the Pacific,” Panetta said. Addressing U.S. troops in Japan, Panetta said the Asia Pacific region was important to the United States. “This is an important area. There are continuing threats that we have to address, threats of rising powers, threats from North Korea, with nuclear proliferation, threats from cyber,” he said.

Agricultural Testing Labs With the decision to close the SDSU Soil Testing and Olson Biochemistry Labs due to funding cuts and re-organization, producers have been asking where they can send samples for analysis. Fortunately, there are both university and private labs in South Dakota and surrounding states that offer many of the testing services that were provided by the SDSU facilities. Right in Brookings, the new South Dakota Agricultural Laboratories offers essentially the same tests formerly conducted by the Olson Biochemistry Lab, and SGS Brookings features many of these services, in addition to soil testing and other analyses. You can contact these labs at: South Dakota Agricultural Laboratories, Brookings Biospace, 1006 32nd Avenue Suites 103, 105, Brookings, SD 57006-4728, PH 605-692-7325, FAX 605-692-7326, www.sdaglabs.com, and: SGS Brookings, Phone: 605-692-7611 Ext: 5, www.seedservices.sgs.com/. In addition, the South Dakota Agribusiness Association website contains a document listing laboratories that offer Soils/Crop Testing Services in South Dakota and can be accessed at: www.sdaba. org/pdfs/Lslabs.pdf. The SDSU Soil Fertility website provides a list of University and private labs that provide soil testing services in the upper Midwest: www.sdstate. edu/ps/extension/soil-fert/soiltestlabs.cfm. If you don’t have a computer with Internet access, contact your Regional Extension Center and we’ll provide you with a printed list of these labs with an explanation of their services, and contact information. Each of these labs has a website, and many of them offer test reports by mail, fax and/or online viewing with e-mail notice of availability. Sample bags are an important part of the analytical lab process, and most or all of the labs will provide sample bags and submission forms at no cost. At the Regional Extension Center here in Winner, we have sample bags and submission forms on hand for some of the area labs for producers who want to submit samples. In many cases, submission forms and guidelines can be printed from their websites, and samples can be secured in a sturdy plastic bag and mailed to their address with the appropriate submission form. Many of the labs will also provide help with interpretation of the results, and if you need additional clarification, your Regional Extension Center staff can provide assistance. The SDSU Animal Disease Research and Diagnostic Laboratory: www.sdstate.edu/vs/adrdl, the SDSU Seed Testing Lab: http:// www.sdstate.edu/ps/seed-lab and the SDSU Plant Diagnostic Clinic: www.sdstate.edu/ps/plant-clinic continue to provide valuable test-

The new year is here! The price of gas as of January 2, 2012, was $2.99 in some filling stations in Rapid City, $3.12 here in Kadoka, but diesel is $3.79. Which brings up an interesting article in the Saturday, December 31, 2011, Rapid City Journal with the title “U.S. Guzzles lots of gas, but exports plenty, too.” “In 2011, U.S. refiners exported 117 million gallons per day of gasoline, diesel, jet fuel and other petroleum products, up from 40 million gallons per day a decade earlier.” Now if your calculator goes high enough, that figures out at 117 million gallons per day times 365 days, equals 42.705 billion gallons in one year. “There's at least one downside to America's growing role as a fuel exporter. Experts say the trend helps explain why U.S. motorists are paying more for gasoline. The more fuel that's sent overseas, the less of a supply there is at home.” When Senator Thune's office contacted me about my asking for an investigation into the cost of diesel fuel (almost a dollar more than gasoline) I was told it was because of the North Dakota oil fields using so much diesel to haul things from the oil fields. You will notice that diesel is included among the exports. And the expert fails to mention that all consumables that travel by truck and agriculture planting and harvesting costs more too. Vicious circle isn't it? Beth Davis, Kobie, Jason and T.J., Steven Stewart, Greg Womack, Kelsey and Kinsey Gittings and Natalie Zinnel were supper guests at the George Gittings’ home Monday. Monday, Ralph and Cathy Fiedler took down their Christmas decorations and then they both were under the weather for a couple of days with the stomach flu bug. Since Monday was an official holiday, things were very quiet in the small town of Kadoka. The grocery store and hardware store downtown were open, but bank and post office closed. Tony Harty visited his niece, Kathy Brown, and Dale Koehn in the afternoon. Don and Vi Moody had such a nice holiday season – it seemed after their Nevada resort holiday they unpacked and settled back into their ranch home by late Christmas Eve and enjoyed being back home. The computer was full with jingle bells, Christmas carols, and lots of electronic holiday spirit. The week was spent at the ranch getting back into the winter cattle feeding and care with trips to Philip and Kadoka, reading mail that was held for eight days while they were on vacation. Monday afternoon, Tony Harty and I were among the many who attended the visitation for Duane Olson here at the Catholic church. Duane and Dottie Olson were among those of us taking dance lessons in the 1980s in Midland. We enjoyed a charter bus trip to Minnesota and danced to the polka music of “Ozzie.” It was wonderful the times we had. Duane and I had a bet for a saint and sinner supper. I won, and he did offer to get that supper lined up, a bullhead fish and a hamburger. We never made that final date, but have great memories. The services were held Tuesday morning. Jessica Gittings and Daniel, Kelsey and Kinsey Gittings and Natalie Zinnel met Irwin and Patsy Ferguson for lunch in Philip Tuesday. That evening, Kelsey, Kinsey and Natalie returned to Iowa. Tuesday morning, I drove the Haakon County Prairie Transportation van to Rapid City for appointments for folks here in Kadoka. Tony Harty did the usual post office stop Tuesday and then to the library to check emails. He picked (continued on page 8)

Some of our residents were out with relatives or friends and others had company in. My daughter, Carol, Colorado Springs, emailed that she made a thick scrapbook for her grandson, Ashley Allen, with photos of his awards and ribbons, science fair projects, and band trophies. What a fine Christmas gift. Merry Christmas to my grandson and his wife, Todd and Darlene Allen, Bellevue, Neb., who sent me a big box of fruit: avocados, kiwis, grapefruit, bananas and an unfamiliar fruit, a big guava. Thank you, the fruit was lovely. Father Dahms reminded us that Christmas means a special Mass celebrating the birth of Christ. Likewise, he reminded us that adios means go with God. Thank you, Inez Perli, who reminded me to go at once to see the rosy dawn. In a minute it loses the rosiness and changes to pink. Judy Sneller stopped by the other day with a gift from her mom, Ellen Rhode. It was two little fabric pillows that are meant for Christmas tree decorations. Ellen was doing a stretch at rehab. We hope she will soon be back at Somerset Court. Bill Knuppe, New Underwood, had just celebrated his 108th birthday. His obituary was in the December 24, 2011, Rapid City Journal. Resident Ben Stone stopped by to say Merry Christmas and I am reminded to reread Ben’s prizewinning story about Christmas 2009. It is about a scene in London in 1975, wherein a gentleman gives his fine coat to a needy soul. M.R. Hansen and wife Barbara invited me to their house for Christmas Eve festivities. They were expecting their daughter, Holly, and family from Woodbury, Minn. I hoped that we got to play bananagrams. Holly is good at that and calls out “Peel” about every second or two. (Peel means you have used up all your letters and everybody gets to take another letter.) M.R. and Barbara Hansen had all their kids and grandkids home. We did play bananagrams and also poker and boggle. We had a buffet supper and then there was giftopening for most of the evening. Clayton Hansen brought me back to Somerset Court. Thanks, Mig and Barb, and thanks, Clayton. My grandson, Todd Allen, and wife Darlene phoned from Bellevue, Neb., to say Merry Christmas. So I thanked them for the lovely box of fruit that they had sent. Cards came from my granddaughter, Stephanie and family, the Colby Iversons, Vancouver, Wash., with photos. Frank and Kathryn Knowles sent a collage of 2011 photos. They mentioned that Darci Hansen, MD, is Chief Resident at University of North Carolina Hospital (Obgyn) They also mentioned that Sarah had joined the family. So I wondered who is Sarah? My niece’s daughter, Eloyce (Johnson) Jensen sent a card and Christmas letter. Her Erica is studying to be an English teacher. Her son, Aaron, is an architect and is working on his first job. She mentioned that she liked “The Hotel On the Corner of Bitter and Sweet” and “Water For Elephants.” Must send her my email. Thanks you all for your cards letters, photos, and phone calls. Happy New Year. Floy Olson had company at breakfast at Somerset Court December 25. It was his daughter, Rita. Medic aide, Heather Riggins, stopped by with my pills and she gave me the address of her grandma, Bonnie Riggins, Wanblee, Word study: licit = lawful, illicit = not lawful.

folded yet. But, December 28, we had a good time at Somerset Court. We had exercises and then a bunch went out to eat for the lunch bunch out on the Somerset Court bus. You have to sign up and it happens about once a month. It makes a nice outing, as we go to different places. At 1:00 p.m. we had Bible study with Chuck and Bonnie leading it. At 1:30 p.m. I saw a few ladies playing cards in the tea room. Some I recognized, Ina Oerlline, Irene Arbach, and Doris Wellman. Wednesday afternoon, my granddaughter, Holly Hansen Maudsley, came over to play scrabble. She was in it for the score, but she did let me have a few good words at the end. Thanks, Holly. She and her family live in Woodbury, Minn., by St. Paul and are here visiting at M.R. and Barbara’s for about a week. In the afternoon, at Somerset Court, Inez, Sandy and Vivian had a little game of pool. Thank you, ladies. Ellen Rhode has moved to the Victorian. We miss her. Her daughters gave me her white poinsettia. Thank you. Sandra O’Connor, Philip, sent me a nice card. She has moved to town where she purchased the house that used to belong to Al Carr. Thank you for your warm Christmas greetings, Sandra. I just received the West Central Electric magazine, “Cooperative Connections” for January 2012. West Central offers $11,000 in scholarships to high school graduates of members families. The magazine has a good article about the rehabilitation of the Chamberlain/Oacoma bridge. It was returned to active duty November 4, 2011. West Central also refurbished its electric line over the bridge. You may borrow my magazine if you wish. Happy birthday, Hans P. Hansen, Spruce House, 2535 Brady Drive, Colorado Springs, Col. 80917. People of Philip may remember that Hans was the first baby born in the new Hans. P. Peterson Hospital January 6, 1956. The Philip hospital has had extensive expansion since then. Philip Health Services serves a wide territory. December 29, here at Somerset Court we had Thursday afternoon bingo with Sandi Davis, our activity director, called numbers for us. For snack and chat we had vanilla ice cream sundaes with chocolate and strawberry syrup and whipped cream. Shawn is back and Kay helped with serving too. Florence Koupal is from Tabor, where they have the Czech days and where they make kolaches. Bernie James is from Park Rapids, Minn. Irene Arbach is from Hoven and Betty Downen is from Fairburn. Vivian Hansen is from Philip. That is all the people who were at our table. Irene Cox had company at supper time, her daughter, Mary Lee and husband Fred Tisdale, Omaha, Neb. Myrna Pokorny expects to go to Spearfish December 30 and spend time with her daughter and family. Dr. Ben Stone, Somerset Court resident, has been featured on a page of a 2012 calendar put out by Cambridge “Who’s Who.” Outstanding individuals in such fields as education, research, avionics, nursing, hospital administration, and several others are honored. For over 40 years, Dr. Stone taught sociology in a number of universities. His special interest is mining. He has had intimate experience in coal mines in England, which he used as a basis for his doctoral dissertation.

Happy New Year, everyone! And greetings from cool, breezy, still northeast Haakon snowfree County. It sounds like our weather is going to warm up nicely this week – hard to believe it is South Dakota! Neighbors have been asking me if I am getting concerned about the condition of the winter wheat or the possibility of a drought, and my answer is no. I must admit, these issues have crossed my mind. But, then I remember the past two winters, and I definitely prefer warm and dry to cold and snowy conditions. Also, I have to remember that I don't have the power to change the weather! o, for now, I choose to enjoy these warm temperatures – I'm sure the weather will change soon enough. I am pleased to report that my Christmas decorations are packed away, ready for another year, so now I can move forward with 2012. Someone mentioned that it is a brand new year – a chance to make whatever changes we want in our lives. Actually, we have that opportunity every day, or every hour, or every minute. We just have to do it, and that is sometimes the difficult part. So here's to positive changes – or, if you are content with your life, here's to continuing to enjoy every minute of every day! My condolences to the Markwed family. Dianne Markwed Olander, only child of Emery and Jo Markwed, passed away at her home in Sioux Falls this past week following a courageous battle with cancer. Dianne grew up in our neighborhood, and she generally attended the Deep Creek bazaar every fall. Randy remembers her as one of his babysitters, and she always seemed to sparkle. She will be missed. Billy and Arlyne Markwed traveled to Sioux Falls last Wednesday to visit Dianne Olander and her husband, Doug. They traveled to Sioux Falls again Monday to be on hand for Dianne's prayer service Monday evening and funeral Tuesday. Lee and Mary Briggs have been sticking close to home. Their granddaughter, Cattibrie Riggle, helped with projects at the ranch last Monday and Tuesday. Mary had the misfortune to hit a deer last Thursday, so her vehicle will need some work – I guess I didn't inquire about the deer. And to continue with her bad fortune, she has contracted a nasty case of sinus infection. She ended up at the emergency room Sunday, and came home with medication to help her feel a bit better. Hope you are soon well, Mary! Dick and Gene Hudson have enjoyed a houseful of company this past week. Their daughter, Deb Burma, husband Cory and their children arrived Tuesday and spent the week at the ranch. Deb's sister, Connie, and her family live at the ranch also, so the cousins had ample opportunity to enjoy each other's company. The Hudsons, Burmas and Johnson enjoyed lots of family time during the week. The Burmas returned to their home in Columbus, Neb., Monday. Nels and Dorothy Paulson were in Pierre Wednesday on business. Other than that, they have stayed close to home. Dorothy said her good news of the week is that her sister-in-law in Flandreau, who has been ill recently, has improved and was able to leave the hospital. Duane and Lola Roseth spent several days in Philip last week visiting their parents. Lola's mother, Joy Klima, spent a few days in the hospital, and Duane's father, Roy Roseth, has also been under the weather. I hope both Joy and Roy are feeling better. New Year's Eve, Duane and Lola and Randy and I spent the evening at the cabin, enjoying supper and a few games of cards. It is such a nice, relaxing place! Coreen and Julian Roseth had a relatively quiet week also. Saturday, they were in Philip to visit Roy Roseth, and they had supper at a

local restaurant before returning home. Coreen said that little Kam, infant son of Adam and Jodi Roseth, is doing very well now that he is home from the hospital. Ron and Helen Beckwith's new granddaughter, Charli Ulmen, daughter of Marc and Cheryl Ulmen, was able to come home from the Sioux Falls hospital Friday, December 30. Little Charli weighed 4 pounds, 15 ounces when she left the hospital, so she has some growing to do. But she is doing well, and the family was very glad to be able to be home together. Ron and Helen went to Ft. Pierre New Year's Day and had a belated Christmas celebration with their daughters, Rose and Cheryl, and their families. Clark and Carmen Alleman had their granddaughter, Morgan, with them during the week between Christmas and New Year's. Morgan is energetic and loves to make things, so she kept everyone on their toes. Clark and Carmen joined friends in Pierre for an evening of card playing New Year's Eve. New Year's Day, they were in Philip to visit Roy Roseth, and Carmen said he seems to be looking a little better. That's great news! Frank and Shirley Halligan were in Pierre Friday and attended memorial services for Ima Storrs Cruse. Shirley remained in town overnight and attended the funeral services for Ima Saturday. Shirley had lunch with friends, Don and Lorren Smith, Saturday, also. Sunday, Shirley and Frank hosted Murdock Halligan and his family to a meal of ham and black-eyed peas. Evidently it is a southern tradition, intended to ensure good luck for the upcoming year. I'm not southern, but maybe I should give it a try next year! Max Jones attended funeral services for Ima Storrs Cruse Saturday. Max and Joyce stayed home New Year's Eve, because they were on chore duty. Their son, Todd, and family were skiing in the Black Hills over New Years. Joyce passed on a helpful hint – she had read that people should wear glasses with orange lenses in order to see better in heavy rain or snow. It would probably be worth a try! Marge Briggs said she has no social news for the week. She did, however, say that she is planning to start studying the garden catalogs. She has also been saving seeds from some of her favorite varieties of cucumbers and tomatoes. She mentioned that this is a good time of year to load up on vitamin C, due to all the illnesses that are going around. I would like to add that it is a good time to take vitamin D also, due to the reduced amount of sunlight on your skin. Mary Neuhauser and her sister, Cindy Gerber, went to Polo to visit their mother, Kathryn Schlecter, Saturday. They also visited Ruth Neuhauser in Highmore Saturday morning. That evening, Kevin and Mary attended a New Year's Eve party at the home of one of their neighbors in Pierre. Kevin and Mary's children are still on break from their studies. Actually, Brianna is finished with college classes, and she is now in the process of job hunting. Good luck to her! Potential employers would be lucky to have her. Sarah Neuhauser is finishing up her pharmacy rotations, and she'll be done later next spring. Son Nick will finish up his program at Lake Area Technical Institute in the spring also. May is going to be a busy month of graduation ceremonies for their family! Congratulations, Neuhauser kids! Well done! Mary and Kevin will probably be wondering what to do with all their extra money once the kids are all out of school. T.J. Gabriel was in Pierre last Wednesday to get the back window replaced in his pickup. Other than that, he has been staying close to home because calving season has begun at Deep Creek Angus. Jeanine worked in Pierre a couple of days last week, and she and T.J. stayed home New Year's Eve. Adam Roseth was a visitor Monday afternoon. T.J. mentioned that he is hopeful that the Deep Creek School will be reopened for the upcoming school year – it would be a lot more convenient for both the students and the parents. Chase and Kelly Briggs and children were in Pierre Christmas Eve at the home of Chase's mother, Connie. Christmas Day, Chase, Kelly and family spent the day with the Ness's. All of Kelly's sisters were home, so they enjoyed family time. Kelly and children spent a couple of days at her parent's home after Christmas, visiting with her sisters and their children. Bill and Polly Bruce hosted their family Christmas gathering last weekend at a motel in Pierre. All of their children joined them, and the group spent from Friday until Sunday visiting, swimming, eating, scrapbooking, and many other activities. The group numbered over 40, but Polly said she never took a head count. Two of the granddaughters were unable to attend, but all the rest of the family was there. Bill and Polly got to meet their newest great-granddaughter, who lives with her parents in (continued on page 7)

home from Nebraska for the holidays. Faye Teeters is at home on crutches. She cracked her ankle bone on her 21st birthday, which was plenty of excitement, and the day will go down in history – because it was on that day that King Edward abdicated. Jay Farrells went to Cavour Wednesday to spend Christmas with the home folks. Jay’s parents live just across the street in Cavour from Mrs. Farrell’s parents, which makes it convient to visit both families at the same time. Raymond Dean is temporarily out of circulation from an ulcerated tooth. That boy had a bad time with his teeth. Mr. and Mrs. Dean spent Sunday evening at the Jacob Smith home playing whist. Elbon Chaff … Mr. and Mrs. Reedy and Veronica spent Christmas with Huston Reedys. They were surprised when they got home and found John had arrived home from Brookings to spend the week-

UNTIL WHEN?
by Cornelius R. Stam
One of the greatest prophecies of Scripture is found in Psalm 110:1 where David wrote: "The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit Thou at My right hand until I make Thine enemies Thy footstool." In Matt. 22:41-46 our Lord explained that this was a prophecy about Himself, David's Son and Lord. Men might hate Him and cry "Away with Him!" They might nail Him to a tree and laugh and sneer at Him, but God the Father responds by saying: "Here, come sit at My right hand until I make your enemies your footstool." We should never forget that according to Bible prophecy God's response to man's rejection of Christ was to be judgment and wrath. In Psalm 2 the question is asked why the nations rage and the people of Israel imagine a vain thing: that they can get along without the One whom God has anointed to be King. The Psalm depicts God laughing at their attempts to thwart His purposes and predicts that "the Lord shall have them in derision" and "speak unto them in His wrath." At Pentecost all was ready for the judgment to fall. Christ had been crucified and "the last days" had begun, as Peter declared in Acts 2:16,17, quoting from the prophet Joel. But strangely, while some of Joel's prophecy was fulfilled, or began to be fulfilled, at that time, the rest of it was not, for God did not -- and has not yet -- sent the prophesied judgment. Thank God, in infinite grace He interrupted the prophetic program, delayed the remainder of its fulfillment and revealed to the Apostle Paul His secret purpose to offer to His enemies everywhere salvation and reconciliation by free grace, through faith in the crucified, risen Savior. In His Ephesian letter the Apostle asks whether they have heard of "the dispensation of the grace of God, which is given me to you-ward; how that by revelation He made known unto me the mystery" (Eph. 3:1-3). Now, thank God, His eternal purpose in Christ is no longer a secret. While the day of grace lasts we may be "justified freely by His grace, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus" (Rom. 3:24).

Lest we might forgot just how strong those South Dakota winds can be – New Years Day 2012 spent the day reminding us! On a positive note, there was no snow to go with that wind! So life is good! Did you make a New Year’s resolution? I did not! Oh, I used too, but in being pretty lame in keeping that New Year’s resolution I decided it was better to choose to do the best you can each day and not focus on keeping that one resolution. With the new year comes remembering points of interest over the past year. A recent, rather humorous, memory I have is of our daughter, April Meeker, and I were working in her kitchen December 23 making salads etc. for Christmas Eve. Thinking she heard someone at the front door, April went to check it out. In opening the door to see if someone was there, Danni, Jamie Meeker’s boxer dog headed out the door with April running after her in stocking feet and me in my slippers. Now how often can you remember a person being able to do that on a South Dakota winter’s day in December? It took a family effort to get Danni back to the house, she thought it was a game and was having great fun, while April and I struggled to get our heart rate at a normal pace. You can’t help but like that furry animal, but thoughts of obedience school did come to mind. My aunt, Esther Schanzenbach, kept a daily diary each year! I mentioned them to Ivan Schanzenbach and he found some of those diaries. While we were at Ivan’s over this past Fourth of July visiting with him and his sister, Joan and Farrell Parks, Blue Water, New Mexico, and a number of their kids and

Kendall and Logan Larson joined the group in the evening to watch everyone open their gifts. Saturday, December 31, Randy and Holly Nemec traveled to Blunt for a late Christmas celebration with Holly's family Karel Reiman has enjoyed having her whole family home over New Years! Steve Reiman, Patrick and Rebecca, Mandan, N.D., came Thursday, December 29. Karel, Steve, Patrick and Rebecca headed for Presho where they met Kathy (Reiman) and Darron Nelson, Minnetonka, Minn., and Anne (Reiman) and Maynard Moege, Mitchell, for the Lyman Classic of boys’ and girls’ basketball. Mark Reiman is the head boy’s basketball coach at Kadoka making it nice his family could all be there for the game. Following the game, everyone enjoyed supper out before heading to the Reiman farm where they grew up. Friday, they celebrated a late Christmas and Saturday it was a fun day with a party and playing a number of games celebrating Patrick’s 10th birthday. It was a special day for him with all of his Reiman family! Sunday the Nelsons and Moeges headed for home and the rest attended church at St. Peter’s Lutheran Church. Steve and kids are heading for home this Monday! Keith Hunt and Christine Niedan took their sister, Teresa Palmer, Murdo, to the wedding of Kenny Palmer in Rapid City New Year’s Day. Kenny is the son of Teresa’s late husband, Marvin Palmer. Reports are it was a very nice wedding! They enjoyed visiting with the Palmer relatives and also had a chance to visit their cousin, Lyle Hunt, Rapid City, who was also at the wedding. Lyle is the son of the late Everett and Violet Hunt and Everett was a brother to their dad, Lyle Hunt, who passed away a number of years ago. Teresa Palmer needed to get back to Murdo Sunday evening as they have school this Monday, January 2. It gets rather confusing as some start then and other schools don’t start until January 3. Oscar Gonzales, who is stationed in California, came to Midland to meet the relatives of Jenna Tolton. He and Jenna and their son, Keenan, stayed with Roy and Carol Hunt Thursday and Friday night and Saturday they stopped to see Jenna’s grandmother and Keenan’s great-grandmother, Ida Hunt, at the Philip Nursing Home before heading for home. Family members have been visiting Roy Roseth who is at the Philip Nursing Home. Roy is recovering from pneumonia. His daughter, Sophie Foley, went to Philip this Monday morning and reports

he is doing better. We wish you continued healing, Roy! Last week, Morris and Barbara Jones took a two-day road trip, first stopping in Wessington Springs to watch a double header, boys’ and girls’ basketball game. Grandchildren, Monica and Braden Jones, were both playing. After the game, they followed Wes and Carrie Mentele home to Howard, where they stayed overnight, coming home the next day. JoAnn Bork reports that daughters Angie and family, Kim and family, and Jenny and family were at the home of parents Paul and JoAnn Bork for the New Year's weekend. Jenny came Thursday and stayed till today and Kim and family came Friday and also left today. Angie also left this morning, so JoAnn says it is going to be pretty quiet around there. JoAnn babysat all the grandkids New Year's Eve so that all the parents could have an evening out. Grandma and the kids enjoyed a movie, popcorn and sparkling cider. Family came home for Christmas and New Years and to be here for the baby shower Saturday for Kylie Ann, daughter of Jenny and Allen Geuther, Pierre. Little Kylie is going to be one of the best dressed baby girls in Pierre and she also received a number of children’s books. Wednesday, Gene and Audrey Jones were in Pierre to attend the funeral of Audrey's cousin, Jo Parker. Jo was the wife of Mike Parker. Some of the other Nemec cousins able to attend were Frances Terkildsen, Kadoka, Wynn and Art Bergeson Hayes, Ben Nemec, Holabird, and Mike and Sue Nemec. All enjoyed the visit with Mike and family and Mike's brother, Stanley and Laura Parker and their daughter-in-law from Newell. Their sister, Patty Lou Whipple, was unable to make the funeral due to health reasons. Friday, Lisa and Matt Foley and children, Levi, Samantha, and Jaycie Geiman, arrived at the parental and grandparental home of Gene and Audrey Jones. Friday and Saturday, Edna, Roger, Destiny, Miranda and Mariah Dale visited at various times. Miranda and Mariah visited to see the New Year in.

families from various places, we were looking through some of those diaries. Joan came across one the year a daughter of theirs or a grandchild was born, can’t remember for sure which! Sure enough, Esther had it in her diary! They say it is good to keep a journal. I’ve had thought of doing it! But so far I have not! It is kind of like those New Year’s resolutions a person makes and don’t follow through with. Maybe this is the year I will make a conscious effort to do some journaling. Most of life seems to be a process of peaks and valleys, and the path isn’t always well defined. That’s when faith comes into the picture! Randy and Holly Nemec had all of their children and grandchildren at their home Friday, December 23, for an early Christmas celebration. Ernie and Laurel Nemec and Barb,

The Master Bluffers Contrary to some young people’s assumption, pop singer Lady GaGa did not come up with the expression “Poker Face.” The term is actually a derivative of men’s ability to bluff with adeptness. The fine art of bluffing, scamming, or con artistry goes hand-inhand with men’s need for challenges to figure out problems, skills, or tasks. There may be a little self-doubt internally, but men will always appear confident externally and figure things out as they go until they feel masterfully skilled. They don’t want anyone to know if there’s something they’re not good at and will admit to knowing how to do something even if they don’t have a clue. Bluffing is a life skill men learn early on to avoid being “found out” that they might not know what they’re doing. The skill with which men can pretend, may explain why women are tend to give a random guy such
as a car dealer, the benefit of the doubt more than her husband. Men are skeptical of each other: they know the other guy’s probably bluffing too. That’s why women rely (and for some, heavily) on makeup instead bluffing. Ladies prefer using makeup, concealer sticks, and clothes to cover up their insecurities. I’ve always been in awe of my husband’s ability to bluff a cow or bull when sorting them off or getting them in. He moves quickly, and appears fearless using daredevil-like skills to get the job done; making the task look so easy whereas when I try to bluff a cow or bull, there seems to be a much higher record of them getting past me. I can never tell if my husband’s putting up a front or if he really does know how to fix the toilet, a sink leak, or unthaw frozen pipes. Either way, I don’t doubt his abilities because he’s always managed to get things back on track. When that happens, I never hesitate to tell him that he is the smarter one of the two of us (or at least he’s good at pretending he is). Our kids and I joke around that my husband is a “jack-of-all-trades, master-of-
MANY” because he always resolves our household and ranch-related problems no matter what it is, making us believe he is a master at many things. If he is bluffing in order to resolve such problems I don’t care because it frees me up to resume doing what I appear to be good at: laundry, cooking, tending to the ruthless mail pile, refereeing sibling quarrels, guidance counseling, and managing all home and family matters. But just to keep me guessing whether or not he’s bluffing, my husband has intentionally admitted his lack of expertise over the years regarding certain challenges: operating the washing machine (even though he washed his own clothes until he was 30 when he met me), loading and running the dishwasher, finding anything in the house, and changing dirty diapers. My husband and I affectionately tease each other that the biggest scam he’s ever pulled off was conning me into marrying him. Whether he scammed me or not I’ll never know but the day he married me, he landed himself a lifetime of man’s ultimate challenge to figure out.

Also present were Father Kevin Achbach, a cousin, John Nemec, and friend, Linda, and Philip O'Connor. All enjoyed a bounteous potluck dinner and much visiting and a few games before departing. The next family reunion will be the annual Fathers' Day get-together. Guests for lunch at the home of Ernie and Laurel Nemec Tuesday were Pastors Randy and Rebecca Ellendorf, White River, and Friday, December 30, Don and Vera Kraemer, Bison, were lunch and supper guests. Don and Nancy Smith, Kimberley and Carly, drove from their home at Bellevue, Neb., Christmas Eve to spend time with parents Shorty and Maxine Jones and other family members in the area. Scott and Jana Jones, Barry Jones, Bryer and Lexi, also spent some part of Christmas Day there, too. Matthew and Brianna Jones drove to the Custer area to spend the weekend with her parents and siblings at a cabin in the Black Hills, returning home Tuesday. Maxine, Nancy, and Carly drove to Pierre one day for a little shopping and to visit Larry, Mary, and Laura Nemec. Another day, Kimberley joined them to visit with Bob and Dorothy Seidler and Athellan Gibbs. Friday afternoon, Ross and Melanie Jones, Casie and Kalli, came from Rapid City for visiting, gift exchange, and supper. Saturday morning, Bryer Jones and Kacee McDaniel, Lovington, N.M., stopped in to visit a few minutes. Saturday, to celebrate New Year’s Eve, and Don and Nancy's anniversary, Shorty and Maxine and the Smith family went to Kadoka for supper. Later, Don and Nancy visited at Cam and Michelle Meinzer’s home to see the New Year in. January 2 found all heading back home to work, and to school starting again soon. Once again I am sending my news off Monday evening as we will be gone Tuesday. Some people I called were not home so hope to get their news for next week. With the beginning of a New Year I would like to leave you with some food for thought: Life is like a roll of toilet paper. The closer it gets to the end the faster it goes. I’ve learned we should be glad God doesn’t give us everything we ask for! I’ve learned that it’s those small daily happenings that make life spectacular. I’ve learned that under everyone’s hard shell is someone who wants to be appreciated and loved. Our thoughts and prayers are with those who have lost loved ones this Christmas season and for those who are having some serious health issues. Wishing you God’s blessings in the year 2012! Have a good day and a good week!
King of the river boat pilots
It was said that he could navigate a sternwheeler through a seas of dew. Grant Prince Marsh was considered the premiere steamboat pilot on the Missouri River in the late 1800s. He built a reputation for making more trips, traveling farther upriver and staying longer on the river each season than other steamboat pilots. Marsh never lost a steamboat in all his years as a steamboat pilot. Marsh was born in 1834 and grew up in the river town of Rochester, Penn. He began his steamboat career 12 years later as a cabin boy. Marsh received his first command in 1866, and both he and his boat became Upper Missouri River legends that same year. At the height of the Montana gold rush, Marsh kept the Luella on the upper Missouri throughout the summer. Most river boats would go downstream by July 15 for fear the water level would be too low to operate a steamboat. When Marsh departed on Sept. 3, he piloted the Luella down the Missouri River through water barely two feet deep with a cargo of gold dust conservatively valued at $1.25 million. Grant was the first to remain so late on the Upper Missouri. During the winter of 1868-1969, the steamboat Marsh was piloting became imbedded in ice in the Upper Missouri River. Marsh returned in the spring to extricate the Nile and bring the steam boat to Saint Louis. This marked the f i r s t time a steamer had wintered on t h e Upper Missouri and returned downriver in t h e spring undamaged. It was Marsh and those he brought with him who relayed the fate of Gen. George Custer and the Seventh Cavalry to the rest of the nation in 1876. The Far West’s 54hour, 700-mile dash to Bismarck with wounded troopers of Major Reno’s command was one of the most remarkable feats in the history of Missouri River steamboating. The previous year, it had taken it Marsh four days in better water to descend the Yellowstone from Billings to Fort Buford, near present-day Williston, N.D. The trip in 1876 was at least 150 miles longer. Marsh stayed active on the river as long as he could. He died in Bismarck, N.D. in 1916.

(continued from page 4) Omaha. Vicki (Bruce) Erickson came to the ranch to spend Sunday and Monday with her parents before returning to her home. Son Andy came out to the ranch Monday also. Big news at the Bruce ranch is that Vince Bruce is now engaged! Congratulations to Vince and his fiancé, Katie Goodwin! I wish them much happiness! Nancy Neuhauser has been fighting the cold and flu bug this week, so she and Raymond haven't made any news. Nancy said she had the stomach flu plus upper respiratory issues, and she was very glad to be feeling a bit better. Ray joined his card group Monday. Continue to get well, Nancy. Jon and Connie Johnson and boys spent the week enjoying the visit from her sister, Deb Burma, and family. The cousins have such a good time – it is nice that they are able to spend time together. When I talked to Connie, her son, Wyatt, was busy working on scholarship applications, since he will be graduating from Philip High School this spring. Good luck, Wyatt – all your hard work will pay off! Ruth Neuhauser enjoyed the visit from her daughter-in-law, Mary, and Mary's sister, Cindy, Saturday. She said things have been rather quiet otherwise. Ruth said she talked with Mary Ann Stoner, and Leo is doing very well at home. That is great news. Russ and Cindy Sinkey spent both Christmas and New Years at home. Cindy works at the hospital in Eagle Butte four days a week, so I'm sure she is enjoying our snowfree winter this year, too! In my haste to finish the news last week, I neglected to mention that Randy and I went to Spearfish December 20th to granddaughter Marisa's Christmas program. The students performed an adaptation of The Nutcracker, and it was amazing. All those little kids were so well behaved, and they thoroughly enjoyed the singing and dancing. The costumes were so creative, and they were all made by the music teacher – I'm sure she breathed a sigh of relief when all the performances were done. It was very entertaining! This past week, Lori and Chelsea Neuhauser returned to their homes Wednesday. Lori had an uneventful flight back to Alexandria, Va. She took a cab from the airport to her apartment, and the cabdriver rear-ended another vehicle on the freeway. Fortunately no one was hurt. Jen and Ross Tschetter returned to their home in Salem Thursday. Later in the day Thursday, Randy and I went to Philip for repairs, then we went on to Kadoka to have supper with friends, Bob and Sharel Spears. We were hoping to take my mother out to supper also, but she already had plans. Friday, we had several people here working cattle, so I fed them a soup buffet in the shop. Saturday, Randy and I enjoyed New Year's Eve supper with Duane and Lola Roseth. Scott and Corry Neuhauser and their children returned from their vacation in Maui Saturday. Monday, we had several deer hunters, working to fill their doe tags during this final part of the season. Our son-in-law, Ross Tschetter, arrived Monday evening, and will spend a few days deer hunting. Also, Dylan Neuhauser and Colton Nickelson have been at the ranch this week, helping out during their holiday break from school. This place stays pretty busy! This week, I am grateful for our shop. For most of our married life, I watched Randy crawl around on frozen or muddy ground to work on equipment, trying to grab tools with frozen fingers or hoping parts and pieces didn't fall into a mud puddle. About ten years ago, we decided to build the shop, and it has been well used since then. It gets used as a cafe, as was the case the other day when I fed the cattle crew there. It also gets used as a community gathering spot, perfect for visiting or card playing. Neighbors come to use the tire machine, or perhaps they pull up with something that needs welding. But most of all, it is a place where the machines can be pulled inside and worked on in comfort. If I had it to do all over again, I would definitely support building the shop – only this time I would make sure the plans included indoor plumbing! And now, I want to share with you something that our neighbor Laura Alleman posted – "Happy New Year. I pray you all encounter the three grand essentials for happiness: Something to do – Someone to love, and Something to hope for." Have a terrific week!

family is having their share of troubles. Before Christmas, Debbie had shoulder surgery and Mike had major surgery on his foot. Both are laid-up. Mike was able to get a motorized wheelchair from Sorensens at Wall to use and this is very helpful. With everyone helping out, they are getting along pretty well. It will be awhile for everyone to heal. Debbie’s mom, Donna Newman, goes with Mike to Rapid City for his appointments and Debbie stays at home as her doctor comes down to Philip for appointments. Guests for Christmas at Donna Newman’s were all her children, Janelle and Bruce Brown and family, Jeanine and son Jackson Grey, Minneapolis, Minn., Mike and Debbie Clements and family, Dianne, Glenn Parsons and family, Ariana Aramtatzis, and Luke’s wife, Tricia Clements, and Zane, Bison, (Luke had to work) and Kenney and Erica Clements and family, Sioux Falls. Everyone enjoyed seeing Zane for the holidays. All the Clement’s family that were here spent Christmas Eve with Theresa Clements at her home. Warren and Shirley Sweezy came after the New Year’s holiday to visit Donna. Christmas Day guests at Bart and Marcy Ramsey’s were Pastor Kathy Chesney, Russ and Vi Olney, Cliff and Rita Ramsey, Dorothy Urban, Brook and Cara Parent and their four children, Chad and Paulette Ramsey and the youngest of the group, their daughter, Charlee, (A lot of us enjoyed seeing her for the first time.) Doug and Phillis Ramsey, Sundance, Wyo., and their daughters, Brittany and Scott Christenson and two kids, Sioux Falls, Michelle and Nick, Sundance, their other daughter, Krystal, was unable to come because of her job. Gary and Amber Ramsey and son, Taylor, Colstrip, Mont., and their daughter, Chelsea, and husband were unable to come this year. Trevor and Christa Fitch and their five children, Milesville, Carla Eide and her two kids, Gillette, Wyo., Marvin, Vicki and Mary Eide, Grindstone, completed those present. We enjoyed ham and turkey and all the trimmings and many desserts and salads. I think we all ate too much, anyway I know that I did. It was nice for the Ramsey grandparents, as all their grandchildren but two were able to be there. The ones who were there enjoyed a great family get-together, but we did miss those who were unable to be there. Lloyd and Marianne Frein enjoyed a great Christmas as all their seven children and their families got there for Christmas. They were so glad as with all those married who have other families to share with it was a wonder all could make it, but they did. What a delight for Lloyd and Marianne. The new year found Marianne down with a bad cold and as she does not want to pass it on to anyone, they were just staying at home trying to get rest. John and Arnis Knutson enjoyed Christmas at his sister’s, Lavonne and Bob Hansen, Howes. New Year’s Day, John and Arnis enjoyed all of their family being home. Scott, C.J. and family and Katrina, Brookings. The holidays are an enjoyable time for everyone. I agree. What is more enjoyable than having your family get together and especially at this time of year when God’s love is all around us. Marvin and Vicki Eide had Trevor and Christa Fitch and boys and Carla Eide, Kiley and Taegan, and Mary Eide for a Christmas get together to exchange gifts and enjoy good food over the holiday. Kiley and Taegan enjoyed spending some time at their uncle and aunt’s home, Trevor and Christa, playing with their cousins while here during their vacation. Carla Eide came to her parent’s home January 1 to get her kids and take them home for school. Mary Eide joined them on New Year’s night for dinner and visiting. Carla and kids left for home Monday. Kiley had a basketball game to be home for and Carla had to go back to work. Gary and Julie Nixon had both of their daughters at their home for Christmas Day. The Weinzetl’s from Belle Fourche came Christmas Eve day and the kids stayed until Wednesday. Kellie went back Monday afternoon. Julie, Abbi and Allie went to the show in Philip Monday night. Julie was happy to have help putting the Christmas decorations away that day too. Gary and Julie and granddaughters, Allie and Abbi Weinzetl, went to Hot Springs to attend the memorial service for Jerry Ferley. Jerry lived with Gary and his folks when he was in high school so he could ride and break horses. It was a wonderful gathering of family and friends and a great celebration of Jerry’s life. Gary and Julie met Kellie Weinzetl in Rapid City Wednesday night for supper and the two girls went on home with Kellie. Thursday was a cattle working day at the Nixon ranch with the help and lunch guest being Jane Jeffries, Milesville, Mandi, Tessa, Josie and Oakley Menzel, Dupree, Michelle Barrett, Grindstone area, and daughter, Kimberly, Pierre, and Alice Harty, Milesville. It was a fun day of work and visiting as the weather was beautiful. Friday, Gary went to help Zane work cattle at his place and was a lunch guest. Sunday, Gary and Julie met friend, Roxanne Hauk, and Ron for lunch in Rapid City and then went on to Spearfish where granddaughter Allie Weinzetl played in a basketball game. While in Spearfish,

Loren Kiel forgot to mention last week that their granddaughter, Kara Gutormson, made a surprise visit to the Kiel ranch on the evening of December 19th. She was enroute from Nampa, Idaho, to spend the holidays with her grandma, Lee Ann Gutormson, in Huron. Kara spent all the following day at Kiels' and left for Huron about noon Wednesday, December 21. That turned out to be an early Christmas present for Loren and Rose. Bob Thorson and Jodi Ainsworth went to Christmas to Bob’s sister, Coral Sand’s home in Spearfish. When they came home they brought Bob’s mother, Phillis, home to Philip for a few days. Phillis returned to Coral’s on December 31 where she will spend the rest of the winter months. She also plans to spend some time with her son, Bill, who lives in Belle Fourche. She plans on going to Arizona later on. The Mike and Debbie Clements

Gary and Julie visited Shirley Menzel and stopped to see Julie’s aunt, Neva Samuelson, and also visit Julie’s cousin, Butch Samuelson. It was a full, but fun day. Michelle Barrett was a visitor at the Gary and Julie Nixon home on New Year’s Day on her way back from Pierre. Mel and Beth Smith had all their children home for Christmas, Melann and Jerry Nicholson, and Gabi, Ashland, Tenn., Tara and Scott Mueller and family, Rapid City, Lana and Heath Schnee and family, Pierre, Brock and Brittany and family, Philip. Others there for the day were Lee Schoniger, Craig and Diana Coller. Lots of good food and visiting were enjoyed by all and the cousins had a blast playing and enjoying each other. The day after Christmas on Monday, Mary Eide had lunch at Mel Smiths and visited with her great-nephews and nieces. It was good to see them all and especially visiting Melanne, as I don’t get to see her very often and I will probably never get to Tennessee. And of course all the kids have grown and changed, so have to keep in touch or won’t know them. Tara’s husband had to leave but the rest were all there. Marvin Coleman stopped to visit while I was there. He and Mel are cousins and he said that he and Phyllis and family were at Bill Gottslebens for Christmas Day. Mel and Beth enjoyed a Rush hockey game over the New Year’s holiday in Rapid City. Beth said that she has returned to work Tuesday in Rapid City. Guests at Bill and Jane Gottsleben’s Christmas were his mother, Myrna Gottsleben, Jane’s brother, Leon and Diann and Sara Gaiokowski, Bill’s sisters, Kathy, Caroline and family, Barbara and family, and of course Bill’s children, Marvin Colemans and Herb and Hazel Sieler Myrna Gottsleben had New Year’s Eve dinner at the senior citizen center and of course the whole family visited Jim while here. Sharon of Colorado was not able to come for the holidays. Good food and visiting was enjoyed by all. Have a good 2012.

(continued from page 3) up Russ Hattel and took him to the store to get things for a surprise birthday party Russ was planning. Russ visited at Tony's and got a belated Christmas gift, then was taken home. Wednesday morning, I caught a ride to bowling with Lila Whidby, along with Joyce Hicks and Cindy Wilmarth. Our team didn't have the best morning and my bowling was way below my average, which is what I bowl against. Having a 155 average doesn't help much either. We had lunch before returning to Kadoka. That evening, I bowled for Shar Moses with Cristi Ferguson, Kathy Arthur and Mary Lynn Crary. A new average, but it didn't help win games. Wednesday morning Tony Harty visited Russ Hattel, Pastor Art and Doris Weischart and stopped by our place in the afternoon. Bill and I made a trip to Rapid City for a doctor's appointment Thursday. Not what a person likes to hear, they will have to dig to find out what causes his seepage. I wonder if there is a 800 number we need to call before any digging takes place? Anyway, a date will come later in 2012. (That sounds like a long time off doesn't it?) The nurse, Allison Thompson, wife of Blake Thompson, was also glad to see us at the doctor’s office. We had a call from cousin Janet (Fairchild) Snow in Redding, Calif., sending her New Year’s greetings to all old friends in the community as well as cousin John Fairchild in Virginia Beach, Va. George Gittings made a business trip to Midland Thursday. The Haakon County Prairie Tansportation van has a new residence as folks around here offered to let it be parked in their spare garages. The help in finding a new home was greatly appreciated. Tony Harty enjoyed coffee out Thursday morning and did business around town. That evening, he attended the visitation for Joan Patterson. Our sympathy to the family of Joan (Miller) Patterson. Joan loved Christmas and made it very special for all the family. This year she passed away Christmas Day, but not without leaving many fabulous memories of what a special time Christmas was. Jerry and Joan farmed the former Roy Royer place north of Philip next to the Fairchild farm and it wasn't uncommon for us to be invited to come to their fireworks display or for Jerry to stop and visit. They were at that place mostly when planting wheat and harvesting. We stopped and visited on our way to and from the fields as well. I was among those attending services Friday morning. Friday afternoon, I visited Tony Harty and picked up some AAA batteries, only to discover we had some in the basement! Bill played cards as usual, then Shirley Parsons and Theresa Clements came over and joined us for a drive and supper out. Shirley had a coupon for one prime rib supper from Bill and me. A belated birthday celebration. Friday, Ralph and Cathy Fiedler's daughter, Lynette Klumb, stopped by on her way to Rapid to get some Christmas gift receipts, so they could make some exchanges. Roxie Gittings left for her home in Eagan, Minn., Friday morning. Beth Davis brought Kobie, Jason and T.J. out to the George Gittings’ home Friday morning to spend the weekend. Beth and Steven Stewart picked up the kids Sunday afternoon. Saturday, Tony Harty went to coffee, then visited at our place. He visited his niece, Kathy Brown, and Dale Koehn in the afternoon. It was going to be a quiet New Years around those two places. Saturday morning in Sturgis rain changed over to snow with about an inch received and the wind made a mini blizzard for a couple of hours. By noon the sun was out and the snow was gone. Saturday afternoon, Richard and Diana Stewart of Philip arrived at the Ralph Fiedler house. They went out for supper here in Sturgis and enjoyed a band and brought in the new year. They haven't stayed out that late in a long time, but they made it. Richard and Diana headed for home after some breakfast. Ralph has a part-time job at a local convenience store. He works two days a week or whenever someone needs a day off. He handles costumers from gas, food and drinks and really enjoys it. Sunday after Mass, Tony Harty visited with Father Brian, had dinner out, then visited Kathy Brown and Dale Koehn. New Year's Eve was fun and relaxing for Don and Vi Moody with popcorn and watching movies and having shrimp cocktails and pizza. New Year's Day, Don and Vi headed out to the east central area with a tad bit of an afternoon of fun and checking out the Missouri River area at Ft. Thompson. It was really windy, but the wind was in their favor (one way) and crossing the bridge at Big Bend Dam – the white caps were wild and water breaking hard against the river retaining rocks. They noted on this drive that they saw lots of farmland. Vi said there were hunters out and about with their orange vests and their dogs also had orange vests, but very little livestock by the road. They returned home early evening with a take-out meal. They enjoyed visiting with a couple from Huron who also had the same length of drive home. It's great to be able to watch the ball drop in New York at midnight there and only 10 p.m. here. Get a lot more sleep that way. Our daughter, Shelley Seager, ended her time of spoiling grandsons, Ryder Seager and Eli Seager, in Rapid City Thursday. She met Brenda Grenz in Philip for lunch at the bowling alley and Dorothy Hansen joined them, too. She visited Ann and Gay Moses and others in Philip, then spent the night with us. Friday morning she left for her home in Sutton, Neb. “Let your light shine! Deliberately choose to look for joy in every step of your journey through life and to share it with others.

No sky ... This Philip Scottie found himself in mid-air and
Flying with style ... Philip’s Austin O’Dea (#15) and the rest of the Scotties were an unstoppable force for the Kadoka Area Kougars, Monday, December 19.
The Philip Scotties decimated the Kadoka Area Kougars, Monday, December 19, in a home game. Philip lit the scoreboard first by sinking two free throws. The next eight minutes of play were an even exchange of basket for basket. The first quarter ended 14-12. The second quarter saw the Scotties begin a slow pulling away from the Kougars. The third quarter was a devastation by Philip over Kadoka. The Scotties doubled their own first half score, while holding the Kougars to just two points, thus more than doubling Kadoka by the quarter’s end. The final period was a tie in points of 11 for each team. The game ended Philip over Kadoka Area 63-34. Philip 14 12 26 11 = 63 Kadoka 12 9 2 11 = 34

“American Pickers” television show features South Dakota’s Sturgis, 1880 Town and Murdo
With an average audience of more than 4.2 million people each week, “American Pickers” is routinely a top 10 show on cable television. “What Happens in Sturgis …” premiered January 2 and will air again Thursday, January 5, at 7:00 p.m. CST). The show is expected to be part of the History Channel’s programming schedule for the next six months. The new episode will feature stops at the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally and Pioneer Auto in Murdo. Hosts Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz visited South Dakota in August of 2011. The two claim they are “on a mission to recycle America, even if it means diving into countless piles of grimy junk or getting chased off a gun-wielding homeowner's land. Hitting back roads from coast to coast, the two men earn a living by restoring forgotten relics to their former glory, transforming one person's trash into another's treasure. American Pickers follows them as they scour the country for hidden gems in junkyards, basements, garages and barns, meeting quirky characters and hearing their amazing stories. If you think the antique business is all about upscale boutiques and buttoned-up dealers, this show may change your mind, and teach you a thing or two about American history along the way.” According to the History Channel, here’s a preview of the show. Danielle turns up a good lead she's been working on for months. When Mike tells Frank let's pack up for a trip to South Dakota, Frank says he can’t. He's secretly going to his 30th annual trip to the legendary Sturgis motorcycle rally, but says he’ll cover the shop. So Mike takes Danielle, first to Dollar Dick’s, a tough-minded auction aficionado whose yard is covered in rusty gold. Next, they happen upon what looks like a tourist trap, but the 1880s ghost town pays off with a speed pick in a pair of treasurefilled silos that turns up some unusual items. Finally, they get to Dave’s amazing automotive collection where Mike spies a sexy belly tank cycle car with classic Hollywood history.

Internal Revenue Service seeks to return $150 million in undeliverable checks, $559,497 in South Dakota
In an annual reminder to taxpayers, the Internal Revenue Service announced today that it is looking to return $153.3 million in undelivered tax refund checks. In all, 99,123 taxpayers are due refund checks this year that could not be delivered because of mailing address errors. Undelivered refund checks average $1,547 this year. In South Dakota, $559,497 awaits 207 taxpayers. Taxpayers who believe their refund check may have been returned to the IRS as undelivered should use the "Where's My Refund?" tool on IRS.gov. The tool will provide the status of their refund and, in some cases, instructions on how to resolve delivery problems. Taxpayers checking on a refund over the phone will receive instructions on how to update their addresses. Taxpayers can access a telephone version of “Where’s My Refund?” by calling 1-800-8291954. While only a small percentage of checks mailed out by the IRS are returned as undelivered, taxpayers can put an end to lost, stolen or undelivered checks by choosing direct deposit when they file either paper or electronic returns. Last year, more than 78.4 million taxpayers chose to receive their refund through direct deposit. Taxpayers can receive refunds directly into their bank account, split a tax refund into two or three financial accounts or even buy a savings bond. The IRS also recommends that taxpayers file their tax returns electronically, because e-file eliminates the risk of lost paper returns. E-file also reduces errors on tax returns and speeds up refunds. Nearly eight out of 10 taxpayers chose e-file last year. E-file combined with direct deposit is the best option for taxpayers to avoid refund problems. The IRS does not contact taxpayers by email to alert them of pending refunds and does not ask for personal or financial information through email. Such messages are common phishing scams. The agency urges taxpayers receiving such messages not to release any personal information, reply, open any attachments or click on any links to avoid malicious code that can infect their computers.

Mayor Hart questioned if the Council wanted to go ahead or wait to surplus and offer the loader for sale through sealed bids or the Philip Livestock Annual Spring Auction. By general consensus of the Council, the action to surplus and offer the loader for sale was tabled until it is repaired. PWD Reckling went on to update the Council on the Lake Waggoner repairs as recommended by the SD DENR. He noted that the City personnel have hauled approx. 25 loads of concrete and placed it on the dam grade. He then presented the Council with a quote from G&G Excavation for $4,500 to $7,500 to complete the spillway and gabion wall repairs. In addition, Gibson Concrete Construction has estimated $1,000 for the concrete that will be utilized in the gabion wall repairs. The City personnel will also be hauling in more concrete to build up the gabion wall. Vetter questioned if the City had appropriated funds to complete the repairs. According to FO Van Lint, the City had appropriated $12,500. It was noted that the total estimated repair costs fall below the bid requirements. Following review, motion was made by Struble, seconded by Harry to approve the quote from G&G Excavation and Gibson Concrete Construction for the spillway and gabion wall repairs. Motion carried. Council was informed that West River/Lyman-Jones Rural Water System, Inc. has approved the City’s request to amend the current Water Purchase Agreement. The amendment reduces the daily contract amount to 500,000 gals. and the monthly minimum payment to $2,500 effective Dec. 01, 2011. New Business: Council reviewed SD Dept. of Transportation’s (DOT) inspection report for the City’s luminaries and traffic signal poles along SD Highway 73. It was noted that overall the City’s poles are in “fair condition” with three of them needing replacement by September 2012. These three poles are located at the corner of Pine St. south of Coyle’s Super Valu; on the west side of the highway north of Philip Motor’s building; and, on the east side of the highway across from Philip Motor’s building. FO Van Lint advised the Council that the State has an 80/20 cost share program for the replacement and upgrading of luminary and traffic light poles along state highways. The application process starts with a letter of interest and resolution of support. Currently the City owns the metal poles along the highway while the wood poles belong to West Central Electric. The program would enable the City to pay 20% of the pole replacements and in turn take ownership of the poles. The advantage would occur in the future should the State determine that they need to be moved or repaired, this would be at the State’s cost.

great improvements over the years, but is fearful that we are going to turn into a retirement community. It was noted that cost increases are never popular, but in this instance, they are necessary to make the needed improvements. Council Member Arthur and Vetter both stressed that if the City does not continue to make improvements; people will not come back or move here. In their opinion, they are a necessity and gave the example of the swimming pool. Vetter then mentioned how technology has assisted our community by allowing people to work from home when their employer is located in another city or state. He is hopeful that the improvements will allow us to continue to draw people to our community. It was also noted that the sewer rate increase in 2011 was the first increase since 1998. If the City does not continue to make improvements and take gradual increases, it could cause larger increases in the future. For example, the community’s that the State has provided loan forgiveness to are charging anywhere from $40 to $50 per month for sewer. Chin then questioned if another rate increase would be needed when the City completes the Pine Street Phase III project, which includes Wray Ave.. It was noted that this project’s scope is mainly storm sewer and in turn, will be financed with 2nd penny sales tax monies. Neither sewer revenues nor a rate increase are anticipated. FO Van Lint then mentioned the possibility of decreasing the monthly garbage rates to help offset the sewer rate increase. She noted that currently the City is collecting $13.78 per month for garbage collection with tax. Considering the financial situation of the garbage fund, the City may be able to reduce this charge. The Finance Office will check into this further and provide more information to the Council for their consideration. She also stressed that the proposed rate increase to the sewer rates will not take effect until the May utility billing. Following discussion, motion was made by Struble, seconded by Vetter to approve both the Storm Water Improvement CWSRF Bond application in the amount of $1,073,300 and Sanitary Sewer CWSRF Bond application in the amount of $750,000. Motion carried with all members voting aye. Motion was then made by Vetter, seconded by Kangas to approve Resolution #2011-16, Amending Sewer Utility Rates for the City of Philip, South Dakota. Motion carried with all members voting aye. RESOLUTION #2011-16 A RESOLUTION AMENDING SEWER UTILITY USAGE RATES FOR THE CITY OF PHILIP, SOUTH DAKOTA WHEREAS, the City Council of the City of Philip, South Dakota, adopted new sewer rates effective with the May 2011 sewer billing through Resolution #2011-02; and, WHEREAS, the City Council of the City of Philip, South Dakota, recognizes that the rates were insufficient to guarantee repayment of revenue bonds that the City is making application for in order to make necessary repairs and/or replacements to sanitary sewer lines; and, NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED by the City Council of the City of Philip, South Dakota, that the following sewer utility usage rates for the City of Philip be amended as follows and are hereby effective with the May 2012 sewer billing. SEWER RATES: Sewer service charges shall be based on water consumption per month. For purposes of this section “users of the sanitary sewers” shall mean the owner or occupant of each individual residential or commercial premises, including but not limited to, the owner or occupant of each apartment in a multiple family dwelling and each mobile home in a mobile home park, but exclusive of hotel and motel facilities. All users of the sanitary sewers within the corporate limits of the City as defined above shall pay a minimum monthly fee of $15.50 for the first 2,000 gallons of water consumed per month. In addition to the monthly minimum fee, each user shall pay $.003 cents per one (01) gallon of water consumed between 2,001 and 10,000 gallons per month; and, $.0015 cents per one (01) gallon of water consumed in excess of 10,000 gallons per month. This additional fee shall be based on the average gallons of water consumed by the user during the months of January, February and March of each calendar year. All users of the sanitary sewers residing outside the corporate limits of the City as defined above shall pay a minimum monthly fee of $31.00 for the first 2,000 gallons of water consumed per month. In addition to the monthly minimum fee, each user shall pay $.003 cents per one (01) gallon of water consumed between 2,001 and 10,000 gallons per month; and, $.0015 cents per one (01) gallon of water consumed in excess of 10,000 gallons per month. This additional

fee shall be based on the average gallons of water consumed by the user during the months of January, February and March of each calendar year. Each user will be billed at the average monthly rate established each calendar year beginning with the May utility billing. Dated this 29th day of December 2011. /s/ John F. Hart, Mayor ATTEST: /s/ Monna Van Lint, Finance Officer (Publish: January 05, 2012) Airport: Council reviewed an update on the Airport Land Acquisition and Environmental Assessment (LA/EA) and the Medium Intensity Runway Lighting (MIRL) Design projects from the Airport engineer, Rod Senn with Kadrmas, Lee and Jackson (KLJ). Motion was made by Kangas, seconded by Struble to approve the Legal Services Contract with City Attorney Gay Tollefson, effective Jan. 1, 2012. The contract reflects the $50 increase to the monthly attorney retainer as appropriated. Motion carried. Council Member Harry presented the Council with a request to implement a dog ordinance, limiting the number and types of dogs allowed by each household/resident. He noted that his neighborhood has a problem with one property owner who has up to fifteen dogs at one time and the barking at all hours of the night that comes with them. His concern is enforcing an ordinance like this. Chief Graham was questioned if the City has a noise ordinance that would assist with this situation. Graham noted that the City does have an ordinance. In this particular situation, he has visited with the neighborhood members and property owner hoping to avoid uproar in the neighborhood. To date, he is still driving through the neighborhood a few times during the week and reported seeing between one and five dogs. The property owner does plan to install a privacy fence and has requested the neighbors call him when there is a problem. It was questioned if the breeds of the dogs are of concern. Both Harry and Graham noted that there are a variety of breeds and the dogs vary from day to day. Harry also stated that it is hard for children to play outside in the neighborhood as you cannot trust what the dogs will do even though they are fenced in. Chin went on to stress that a privacy fence is not going to help with the barking. In her opinion, it will not solve the neighborhood's concerns. It was then questioned how the City would go about limiting the number of dogs and breeds. Also, would those already in town be grandfathered in. DFO Smith noted that she has contacted other cities and the majority of towns in the State have ordinances that limit the number of dogs and cats through a licensing process. This process also requires the owners provide proof of vaccinations in order to license their animals. Arthur mentioned that the City did, at one time, require the licensing of dogs and cats, which FO Van Lint confirmed. No action was taken and the City Office was directed to research the City’s old dog and cat ordinance. Council reviewed the Commercial Garbage Hauler’s permits for 2012, noting that both applicants have met the licensing requirements. Motion was made by Arthur, seconded by Kangas to approve Heartland Waste Management’s and Waste Connections of S.D. dba Walker Refuse’s Commercial Garbage Hauler’s permit for 2012. Motion carried. The SD Dept. of Legislative Audit has approved the City’s FY2010 Audit. Council reviewed the 2011 year-end sales tax revenues reported at $395,861.67 which is up 10.41% from 2011. Appreciation was expressed to the community for supporting the local economy by shopping in town and to the business owners for keeping their doors open. Chin questioned when the sales tax revenues collected from the Matched Bronc Ride are received. FO Van Lint noted that a portion are received in July and then again in August. It depends on when the businesses file their sales tax returns for June. Council reviewed the following L/P Propane bids received this month: Dec. 20, 2011 Fitzgerald Oil Company ..........$1.76/gal. Midwest Cooperatives ............$1.85/gal. Motion was made by Vetter, seconded by Harry to approve the election agreement and the following resolution combining the municipal election with the school election on April 10th, 2012, with the only polling place at the school. Motion carried with all members voting aye. Resolution to Hold a Joint Election with the School WHEREAS, it appears to the governing body of the City of Philip that combining the municipal and school election would result in a reduction in cost to both governmental entities and, WHEREAS, such a combined election would result in increased public interest and participation, BE IT THEREFORE RESOLVED, that subject to the approval of the governing body of Haakon County School Dis-

She also reminded the Council of the projected sidewalk project along SD Highway 73 slated for 2015. If the City is interested in the program, this should be accomplished prior to and coordinated with the sidewalk project as more than likely the wiring would change from overhead to underground. But either way, she stressed that the three poles noted in the report need to be replaced by September 2012 unless otherwise approved by the State. Following discussion, motion was made by Vetter, seconded by Chin to authorize FO Van Lint to send a letter of interest and resolution to the SD DOT for the 80/20 cost share program for upgrading the City’s luminary poles along SD Highway73. Motion carried. Motion was made by Kangas, seconded by Arthur to approve Resolution #201115, Supplemental Appropriations Contingency Transfer, 2011 Budget. Motion carried with all members voting aye. RESOLUTION #2011-15 SUPPLEMENTAL APPROPRIATIONS CONTINGENCY TRANSFER 2011 BUDGET WHEREAS, it appears that there will be insufficient funds in the 2011 General Fund Budget to carry out the indispensable functions of government.

Hart, Mayor ATTEST: /s/Monna Van Lint, Finance Officer (Publish: January 05, 2012) Wood/Walden Ave. Project: Council reviewed the Storm Water Improvement CWSRF Bond application for the project. This bond application is for the storm sewer, curb, and gutter portion of the project with the City pledging 2nd penny sales tax revenues to guarantee said bond repayment. The amount of the application for financial assistance for the storm water portion is in the amount of $1,073,300. The Council also reviewed the Sanitary Sewer CWSRF Bond application for the project. This bond application is for the sanitary sewer portion of the project with the City pledging sewer revenues to guarantee bond repayment. The amount of this application for financial assistance is $750,000. It was noted that Council Members Vetter and Arthur as well as FO Van Lint met with staff members of the SD DENR and the CSDED to review funding options for the project. Vetter reported that during the meeting, they were advised that the City is more than likely not eligible for loan forgiveness money. This is due to the fact that the City’s sewer rates are too low. Even though we raised our sewer rates in 2011, they are still insufficient according to the State. He then proceeded to explain that the storm sewer portion of the project will be financed with 2nd penny sales tax monies. The sewer portion on the other hand, will be financed with sewer revenues. He stressed that since the sewer fund is its own fund as revenues are collected to pay for these services, it should pay for its own repairs and improvements. If the City would pay for these out of the 2nd penny sales tax, it would tie up those funds for future projects. At this time, the sewer rate increase proposal is $2.00 to the monthly sewer rate minimum to the in City residents and $4.00 to out of City residents. The City is hopeful that this will be sufficient to cover the bond requirements, but cannot guarantee until the application is approved. Council Member Chin noted that she has visited with residents of her Ward along with an individual that lives on N. Wood Ave. According to the individual on N. Wood Ave. they want their road repaired, but are not in favor of a sewer rate increase. Chin also noted that she is not particularly in favor of an increase. She mentioned that we are losing Census numbers and feels that an increase may prevent more people from moving here. She understands that we are blessed with a lot of businesses and the City has made

Proceedings of the City of Philip
SPECIAL MEETING DECEMBER 29, 2011 A special meeting of the Philip City Council was held on Thursday, December 29, 2011, at 5:00 p.m. in the Community Room of the Haakon Co. Courthouse. Present were Mayor John F. Hart, Finance Officer Monna Van Lint, Council Members Greg Arthur, Shirley Chin, Tom Struble, John Kangas, Jason Harry and Mike Vetter. Also present were Deputy Finance Officer Brittany Smith, Public Works Director Matt Reckling, Chief of Police Kit Graham; and, Del Bartels with the Pioneer Review. Absent: None Mayor Hart called the meeting to order stating that the purpose of this meeting was to clear up year-end business for 2011. Motion was made by Kangas, seconded by Arthur to approve the agenda as presented. Motion carried. Motion was made by Vetter, seconded by Chin to approve the minutes of the last meeting as published by the Pioneer Review. Motion carried. Council Member Vetter questioned if the claim from K&P Pump was the last bill for repairing the lift station. PWD Reckling advised that the current claim is for the rebuilding of the City’s old lift station pump. This is the pump that is kept on hand for emergencies. To date, K&P Pump has not inspected nor repaired the lift station. With all the flooding during 2011, they have been busy so he is hopeful that this will be in the near future.

SS & WH ............................11,448.81 As a result of having 13 pay periods in 2011, it will affect some of the budgets as only 12 pay periods were budgeted for the year. A motion was made, seconded with all in agreement to transfer the following amounts to the listed budgets below from Contingency, totaling to $22,600.00. 101-142 Auditor $1,500.00 101-165 Vet $1,200.00 101-151 St Attny $3,600.00 101-441 Mentally Ill $3,000.00 101-153 Court Appt Attny $1,200.00 101-511 Library $2,300.00 101-163 Courthouse $2,700.00 101615 Weed Control $ 600.00 101-163 Reg of Deeds $6,500.00 A motion was made, seconded with all in agreement to transfer $40,000.00 cash to the Highway budget. There was discussion concerning the Haakon County Sheriff’s Office Policy and Procedures Handbook, effective February 15, 1996, and the Haakon County Personnel Handbook which was updated in March of 2008. Commissioners had been mailed a copy of both handbooks a week previous to the meeting to review them. Several items are in need of clarification. During the discussion, S.D. Enhancement Director Marlene Knutson had arrived at the meeting. She told the commission that one of the services they provide is working with counties to assist in writing their policy handbooks. The fee would be minimal. It was the decision of the commission to table the handbook issue until one could be completed working through S.D. Enhancement District in the first part of 2012. Haakon County is a member of the Central South Dakota Enhancement District which includes the counties of Hyde, Sully, Hughes, Stanley, Jones and Jackson. The 2012 dues are $5,579.76 and in return, they provide member counties with technical assistance on any projects they wish to work on. They help in finding grants or other financial assistance, such as they did for Haakon on the 9-1-1 Signing. Once again, they were contacted to assist Haakon County in developing a comprehensive plan for the county. A comprehensive plan is defined as the official statement of governmental policy concerning desirable future development and growth. The published Comprehensive Plan document should include a single, unified general physical design for the county, and it must attempt to clarify the relationships between physical development policies, and social and economic goals. These are designed to help the county grow in a planned, orderly fashion. It helps protect ag land, protect streams from becoming contaminated and is for the health and safety for all county residents.

As was discussed earlier in the year, the payroll would be changed to being paid in the same month as the work was done. In the past, for example, December’s work was paid out the first of January. This month, the correction was made to that and in 2012 and on, payroll will now fall on the last day of the month instead of the first day of the following month. The following payroll is December’s pay for December’s work.

One of the first steps is to create a Planning Commission Ordinance according to SDCL 11-2-2: “Appointment of county planning commission--Number of members--Acting as zoning commission. The board of county commissioners of each county in the state may appoint a commission of five or more members to be known as the county planning commission. If a county proposes to enact or implement any purpose set forth in this chapter then the board of county commissioners shall appoint a county planning commission. The total membership of the county planning commission shall always be an uneven number and at least one member shall be a member of the board of county commissioners. The county planning commission is also the county zoning commission.” SDED Director Marlene Knutson presented a “draft” agreement to the commission for them to review, stating that they will assist Haakon County in a comprehensive plan in which the county will address plan goals and objectives regarding: economic development, transportation, parks, historic preservation, existing land uses, drainage management, long term growth and other areas as required. It was agreed by the commission that it would be best to have a plan in place before something negative happens. There will be more discussion before a final decision is made.
The next regular meeting will be Tuesday, January 3, 2012, at 1:00 p.m. A motion was made, seconded with all in agreement to adjourn the meeting at 4:37 p.m. HAAKON COUNTY COMMISSION Gary Snook, Chairman ATTEST: Patricia G. Freeman, Haakon County Auditor [Published January 5, 2012, at the total approximate cost of $154.98]
