Fourth of July Fireworks
The Philip Volunteer Fire Department presented its annual fireworks display at
dusk, Wednesday, July 3, over Lake Waggoner. Patriotic music was played over
96.7 radio during the fireworks display. Fire Chief Matt Reckling said that the
crowd seemed to be pretty good sized. The free will donations helped support
the $5,000 cost for the fireworks and will help to make next year’s display even
larger. Early ordering earns a discount so the PVFD can bring in the various single
shots, including some six inchers, and the many multi-shot batteries commonly
called “cakes.” Before and after the huge main event, kids shot off their own
fireworks. Many boats dotted the lake during the show. Afterwards, many viewers
left, though many stayed behind in campers. Photos by Del Bartels
Checked and double checked, and waiting for dusk. Over a dozen members of
the Philip Volunteer Fire Department helped prepare and present the depart-
ment’s annual fireworks display Wednesday, July 3, over Lake Waggoner. Viewers
came from the Philip area and many surrounding towns. The materials cost
$5,000, even with an early order discount. PVFD also covered the cost of insur-
ance. Shown are just a few of the launching bays for the fireworks.

After moving from South Africa
to Philip by way of Canada in 1991,
Coenraad (Coen) and Trudie Klop-
per became United States natural-
ized citizens June 27, 2013.
They were part of a 150-person
naturalization ceremony held at
Mount Rushmore National Memo-
rial by the United States District
Court of South Dakota.
“It was an incredible surround-
ing for becoming a citizen,” said
Coen. Trudie said, “It was a good
experience for us. It was so much
better than having it in a govern-
ment office.” It wasn’t just the set-
ting, but the act itself, “It was
much more emotional than you
would think it would be after all
these years,” said Trudie.
Marrying in 1972, having three
children in the next six years, Coen
graduating from the University of
the Orange Free State, and him be-
coming certified as a medical prac-
titioner in 1980, all in South Africa,
made it a hard place to leave.
“We will always have a very deep
interest in South Africa; so many
friends and wonderful experiences.
You don’t just cut off those feel-
ings,” said Trudie. But there were
reasons to leave. “When you come
from a country where things are
not going all that well, maybe you
have more appreciation for the new
country than those who were born
here,” said Trudie.
Coen was licensed in 1991 to
practice medicine in South Dakota.
They then lived in Philip, where he
was employed at Philip Health
Services. In 1992, they were
granted permanent United States
residency. From 1999 to 2003, they
lived and worked in Vermillion, but
came back to Philip, where they
call home.
“We’ve been privileged, really.
This is a wonderful place to wind
up in,” said Coen. “We are very
happy to be here, and the fact that
we are citizens. This is a wonderful
place to live, to work in, wonderful
people,” said Coen. He went on to
praise Charlie Ekstrum and the
rest of the 1991 hospital board for
getting him and his wife to Philip
and for making it possible to stay.
“We were told that it could not hap-
pen. It was impossible. They made
it happen through hard work.”
After having to have green cards
for 20-some years, the Kloppers ap-
plied for citizenship in January of
this year. They wanted to be more
than just legal visitors in the U.S.
The long delay was more than
practical implications. “It is really
hard in leaving our country, just

The Haakon School District
Board of Education accepted, with
regret, the resignation of Michael
and Erin Baer, during the board’s
Monday, July 8 meeting.
M. Baer, secondary principal at
Philip Junior High and High
School, had been an instructor here
several years ago. He wrote in his
letter of resignation, “I appreciate
the opportunity to return to Philip
and cut my teeth as an administra-
tor. The people of Philip are
tremendous and will not be forgot-
ten. However, it has been my life
long dream to live in the mountains
of Montana. I forgot that for a
while, in part due to the great peo-
ple I have met and worked with
along the way. At this time I have
the opportunity to pursue those
dreams. It is a way of life I want for
my children ....”
E. Baer, special education in-
structor, wrote in her letter of res-
ignation, “I want to express my
sincere gratitude welcoming us
back. We truly love this community
and have been honored to have our
children here. The administration
and staff of this school district are
some of the most loyal, dedicated
individuals I have ever had the op-
portunity to work with. I hope the
board knows how fortunate they
are to have a staff as top notch as
the staff at the elementary, high
school and rural schools.”
After Mark Nelson, Doug Thor-
son and Brad Kuchenbecker were
sworn in to begin their terms on
the board, Scott Brech was elected
to continue on as board president
and Mark Radway was elected as
vice president.
The annual beginning of the fis-
cal year routine was gone through.
The First National Bank in Philip
is the official depository for district
funds and accounts. The Pioneer
Review is the official newspaper for
publication of board meetings, ad-
vertisement, etc. Admission prices
for activities for the 2013-2014
school term will remain the same
at $2.00 for students and seniors,
with a season pass at $20.00, and
other adults at $3.00, with a season
pass at $35.00.
The only change from last year
will be regular lunch prices for
Three members of the school board took their oaths of offices July 8. Mark Nel-
son, left, did not run for his seat, but was appointed for a one year term. Doug
Thorson, center, and Brad Kuchenbecker began their three year terms.
Secondary Principal Michael Baer resigns
really hard to say goodbye,” said
Trudie. She explained that with
them having a South African pass-
port for return visits, the United
States is not responsible for them
and they cannot go to the United
States consulate. And, South Africa
has a policy of taking away land
that is owned by foreigners, which
the Kloppers now are. Being fifth
generation landowners, though,
was not enough. Trudie said that
South Africa has already taken
away all underground and mineral
rights from farmers. “We decided
that if they wanted to take the
land, then they will take it, with us
being citizens or not,” said Trudie.
In order to become naturalized
citizens, the Kloppers had to pass a
test over civics and English. “I
managed to scrape through. They
give you a hundred questions to
know and then they ask you a few.
It was easy enough so even I could
pass it,” said Coen.
Coen said that he looks forward
to being able to vote. “So far they’ve
allowed us to pay taxes, but not al-
lowed us to vote,” he said. “I don’t
think it changes anything other-
wise, other then the right to work.
And, I am proud to be a citizen,”
said Coen.
“It will be just wonderful to be
able to vote again,” said Trudie.
“Now we can do what we like be-
cause we really have the right now.
We have a lot to be thankful for in
this country. This country has af-
forded our kids wonderful opportu-
nities, and they have made use of
that,” said Trudie.
Their children are all graduates
of Philip High School. Leta is a
lawyer in Australia, Henk is a neu-
rosurgeon in Sioux Falls, and
Steph is an echocardiographer in
kindergarten through sixth grade
being raised a dime to $2.00, and
for seventh through 12th graders
going up to $2.10. Adult lunches
will remain at $2.75. Reduced
lunches will remain at 40 cents,
and reduced breakfasts will remain
at 30 cents. Extra milk will still be
25 cents.
Midwest Cooperatives, Philip,
will provide propane at $1.29 per
gallon. Upon confirmation of in-
cluded delivery costs, Finoric, LLC,

A deployment ceremony for the
South Dakota National Guard’s
152nd Combat Sustainment Sup-
port Battalion was held in Pierre,
Saturday, July 6. The 152nd is
made up of 68 soldiers represent-
ing approximately 28 South
Dakota communities.
Sargeant First Class John
Kramer, a Philip resident and em-
ployee of West River/ Lyman-Jones
Rural Water, is a member of that
unit. Kramer and his wife, Tonya,
have three boys, Coy, Corbin and
Colden. He is a son-in-law to Dave
and Sharon Hemmingson, Philip.
Captain Jeri Fosheim, wife of
Chris Fosheim, from the Mid-
land/Hayes area, is another mem-
ber of the 152nd. She is a
daughter-in-law of Vic and Carol
Fosheim, Midland. Fosheim is also
leaving behind three small chil-
On Sunday, July 7, the unit left
for Fort Hood, Texas, for theatre
specific training. They are sched-
uled to leave mid-August for
Afghanistan, with current antici-
pation to return in February of
next year. The original duty term
of nine months has supposedly
been reduced to approximately six
months. The reduction may be due
to the drawdown of American
troops in Afghanistan.
Kramer had plans to retire from
the military, and his eligibility
time for doing so will be during his
deployment. Kramer’s responsibil-
ities in the guard are very similar
to what he does for WR/L-J job.
Hundreds of family members,
friends and supporters gathered at
the T.F. Riggs High School audito-
rium to see the soldiers off as they
depart for Afghanistan in support
of Operation Enduring Freedom.
According to the South Dakota
National Guard public affairs of-
fice, speakers for the ceremony in-
cluded Governor Dennis Daugaard,
Pierre Mayor Laurie Gill and
Major General Tim Reisch, the ad-
jutant general of the SDNG.
“This is a great day, because this
(ceremony) brings us together be-
cause of our love for the soldiers
that are being deployed today,”
said Daugaard. “Our admiration
for their great competence, skill,
courage, dedication and loyalty to
Jeri Fosheim
Kramer, Fosheim deployed to Afghanistan
John Kramer
our state and our nation inspires
us to come together and show them
how much we appreciate them.”
“I couldn't be more proud of this
unit,” said Reisch. “This unit has
executed a rigorous training plan
to prepare this unit for deploy-
ment, and there is no doubt in my
mind that your performance during
this deployment will add to the im-
pressive legacy of the South
Dakota National Guard.”
The mission of the 152nd will be
to provide multifunctional combat
support and combat service sup-
port to forces throughout an as-
signed area of operation. Multi-
functional areas include supply, lo-
gistics, transportation, mainte-
nance and ordinance support.
“We will do everything possible
to go over there and do great things
and come home safe. That's our
number one goal,” said Lt. Col.
Michael Oster, commander of the
152nd. “Our second goal is to live
in a place where excellence is not
only our expectation but also that
it becomes our average. So on a bad
day we're great and on a good day
we are spectacular. That’s what
we're going to do in the 152nd.”
While many of the soldiers are
deploying for the first time, more
than half of the unit are deploying
for the second or third time.

Lookin’ Around by Syd Iwan
Bread making is an old family
tradition around here. Some of my
earliest memories are of Mom and
Grandma placing a tall square
stool in the middle of the kitchen
and plunking a big old bread pan
on top of it. I think it was just an
oversized dish pan, but it was
large. From there, they added in-
gredients until the mixture was
thick enough. Kneading followed
until the dough was smooth.
As I recall, they scalded some
milk first off so it had time to cool.
Then they proofed the yeast which
involved dissolving it in warm
water to which a little sugar had
been added. If the mixture started
to bubble and expand, that
“proved” it was still good and
would do the job. After milk, water,
sugar, salt and Crisco (I think, or
lard) were mixed together and the
yeast was added, the flour was
worked in little by little until the
dough was elastic and of the right
Next, the pan was put in a warm
place, covered with a white dish
towel and allowed to rise. Then it
was punched down and usually
made mostly into loaves, but some-
times into coffee cake, buns, or cin-
namon rolls. It was at this point
that I liked to steal pinches of the
dough and eat it. I liked it quite a
lot, but Mom and Grandma
frowned if I ate too much of it. I
think they suspected it would rise
in my stomach and blow me apart
or something. It never did, of
course, but they had some bias
against my eating too much raw
Given my upbringing, I guess it
was only natural that I should take
up bread making on my own once I
got settled back in at the ranch
after college and the Navy. I
started simply and learned as I
went along. With my love of exper-
imentation, I tried all different
kinds of bread from sour dough to
French to whole-grain and raisin.
There were some disasters and
some triumphs. After I’d learned
all I wanted to know about the var-
ious permutations, I more or less
settled down to plain old white
bread that I mostly made into buns
but also into cinnamon and
caramel rolls. I’m still doing that
whenever the freezer runs low.
I have now gone more low-key,
however. At first, I’d mix up a huge
batch of dough using about twelve
cups of flour. That would make
three-dozen buns. Now I’ve become
sort of lazy and throw the ingredi-
ents in a bread machine and let
that contraption grind away mix-
ing and so forth. After the dough
has risen nicely in the machine

Dog gone it ... by Del Bartels
I like dogs, even to the point of holding lengthy conversations with
them, thus I must be a dog person. For good or bad, I discover bits of
myself in the personalities of different dogs.
Peace of mind: my own old dog gets up from a near sleep to greet me
at the door, and after checking me out and getting her ears scratched,
she finds a good spot on the carpet and lays back down. I have gotten
up from the living room chair to greet my children from their late out-
ings, then, content with them being safely home, I enjoy a true sleep.
Needless nervousness: years ago, my dog wrecked me during a run
by suddenly startling at a street sign that had been there for years. Re-
cently, I was startled by a neighbor’s big dog that just wanted to play,
its slobbering mouth joyously offering me a noisy, plastic water bottle
for me to throw in a game of fetch. Distractedness: trying to follow an
eager beagle on a multitude of scents is probably easier than following
my disjointed conversation when I’m trying to multitask.
Gluttony: dogs will fixedly eyeball each forkful of your supper as your
hand goes from plate to mouth, while their bowl sits full. Yet, when
their dog food is all they are going to get, they will snarf it gone in one
nonswallowing, crumbly bite. I will miss an earlier meal in anticipation
for a barbecued steak, then later snarf down a hamburger or two and
some of the grilled hotdogs. Loyalty: my dog will endure a deserved
scolding with a plaintive gaze of utter demoralization, then almost put
her tail section out of alignment when she sees me reach for the walk-
ing leash. Or, she will quake with unreleased explosive energy in the
quandary of watching my son and me wrestle and she doesn’t know
which to defend. I will half sleep through entire conversations during
a school sports event, then I hear one of my kids’ names mentioned and
my ears go to full attention, ready for me to drool over any compliment
or defend the kids to the death from any insult.
Stupidity: jerking and tornadoing on her chain, my younger dog will
go completely berserk at a squirrel or cat teasing it from just out of
reach. My silly antics are far too numerous to got into. Impoliteness:
after an odd day or somehow getting unfamiliar food, the big dog
mournfully looks around as the rest of us start to gag and fight for fresh
air. I at least have the manual dexterity to open the door, figuratively
tuck my tail between my legs and leave the building.
Cuddlesome: a sleeping dog can be cute, whether laying with a
human baby curled up against it, or sprawled out taking up three quar-
ters of your bed with you almost falling out, or sleeping and chasing
rabbits. I also am extremely cute, at least in my own mirror.
It is said dogs are man’s best friend, some are. They love it when you
get home. Any attention is returned 10-fold. Some speak only when
told to. They aren’t jealous of another’s scent on your clothes. They
have their own personalities, despite those of their masters.
Dave Konst is celebrating 40 years with Scotchman Industries. Konst started with
the Philip manufacturing company July 5, 1973, as a shop workman specializing
on a manual lathe and repair work for customers. A few years later he moved into
the machine maintenance department. In 1983, Scotchman purchased a cold
saw company, and Konst was asked to get involved. He learned how cold saws
worked and was very instrumental in designing Scotchman's automatic cold saw
line. Konst is still Scotchman's go-to guy for their cold saw product line. In the
1990s, Konst designed and built machines and systems to help Dakota Case
(Scotchman's sister company) become more automated. In 2002, he moved into
Scotchman's customer service department, where he continues today. Scotch-
man Industries thanks Dave for his past 40 years of service. Shown is Konst, left,
being congratulated by Scotchman Industries President Jerry Kroetch. “Dave is
a very talented individual. There is not much mechanically that he can’t figure
out and do,” said Kroetch. Courtesy photo

Fourth of July – Milesville style
The community of Milesville held its annual get-together for
Fourth of July celebrations, Thursday evening, July 4. The tra-
ditional roast beef was provided, with a following auction of
the remaining roasts. All auction and free will proceeds went
to helping with the maintenance of the Mileville Hall. The
year’s winning bid.
Personnel action included con-
tracts for Keven Morehart as the
head football coach and for Theresa
McDaniel as a special education
paraprofessional. Contracts have
been offered to a potential assis-
tant football coach and a junior
high football coach.
The board approved open enroll-
ment requests for two families to-
taling one sixth grader, two eighth
graders and one ninth grader, all
from the Kadoka area.
The board has been requested to
approve one more student, but the
district has no say in accepting the
transfer – nor the added cost. “I
just wonder why we are asked to
approve, when we don’t have a
choice,” commented board member
Jake Fitzgerald.
“The district has received notifi-
cation that it will be responsible for
the out of district tuition for a resi-
dent student. The student has been
cared for by a different education
system, though the legal residence
of that student’s guardianship will
change to Haakon School District
because the guardian(s) will
change to adult(s) who reside in
Haakon County,” stated Business
Manager Britni Ross. “Some school
districts receive special education
state aid. Other than our federal
IDEA money, our special education
program is funded mostly by local
tax revenue.” The bottom line is the
district will have to pay $115 for all
365 days of the calendar year to the
Department of Human Services,
with an increase imminent.
The budget hearing concluded
with only some changes that will
have to be published after the orig-
inal proposed budget was printed.
The special education costs were
not known at the time of the origi-
nal proposed budget. According to

and is about to be baked into a loaf,
I turn the thing off, remove the
dough, and make it into twelve
buns. Those last me quite a while
for sandwiches and eating with
meals. I keep most of them in the
freezer and take them out little by
little so they don’t get old and dry
before I get around to using them.
Oddly enough, I didn’t eat a lot
of bread as a kid although it was
good with peanut butter, jelly and
honey (all three at once) as my
grandma used to make for me. Dis-
interest in bread at that time
might be partly because I’m largely
of German descent, and we tend to
be into hearty meaty foods more
than fluffy stuff like bread. I hap-
pened to marry a Norwegian, how-
ever, and that bunch of people
thinks no meal is really complete if
it doesn’t include bread. It must be
a contagious attitude since it has
rubbed off somewhat on me. Most
of my meals now include some
form of bread.
The thoughts of another group of
people have apparently rubbed off
on me too. That would be the Bo-
hemians or Czechs with their ko-
laches. These goodies are basically
bits of dough with a sweet filling
such as prunes, jelly, or a kind of
pie filling. There are two groups of
these people who do not agree with
each other about the proper way a
kolache is to be made. One bunch
says you just put a flat piece of
dough on a pan, let it rise, put a
thumbprint in the dough, and fill it
with sweet stuff before baking.
Others are just as adamant that a
real kolache is a flattened piece of
dough with the filling put on top
and the corners pulled up and
pinched together. Both are good,
but I prefer making the former
since it is easier and quite fine
with a topping of sour cream,
sugar, and cinnamon. I make those
a lot.
Anyway, bread making is a sat-
isfying endeavor. Dough is fun to
work with. The whole process also
makes the house smell nice while
you’re at it, and the end result
often tastes really good. What
more can you ask?

Rural Livin’
The Value of
Disease Resistance
During a recent session of col-
lecting wheat samples for disease
analysis with SDSU Small Grains
Pathologist, Shaukat Ali, and Ag
Research Manager, Rick Geppert,
we found a field containing signif-
icant leaf rust. A quick phone call
to the producer revealed that the
field was planted to a variety
known for desirable characteristics
he considered important for that
field, but not resistance to leaf
The producer knew the variety
was susceptible to leaf rust,
planned to make a fungicide appli-
cation, and did, but not before
there was some level of infection.
We made visits to several other
fields in the area and found little
or no leaf rust.
In this time of relatively high
commodity prices and the proven
effectiveness of fungicides, fungi-
cide applications have become
somewhat commonplace. For some
producers it’s not a question of
whether they will apply a fungi-
cide to their wheat, but when,
which product, and/or how many
This raises the question of the
value to today’s farmers of the ef-
forts of pioneers in wheat breeding
like Norman Borlaug and Edgar
McFadden, who developed wheat
varieties with resistance to rust.
After hearing multiple research re-
ports citing the effectiveness of
fungicide applications at a meeting
in the past year, I somewhat face-
tiously asked the question, is dis-
ease resistance still valuable? The
answer, which I expected, is obvi-
ously, yes.
For most of the fields we sam-
pled on the day referred to earlier,
resistance to leaf rust was working
well, and could very well make a
fungicide application unnecessary.
While leaf, stripe and stem rust
are currently all confirmed to be
present in South Dakota this year,
many wheat fields remain rela-
tively free of those diseases. This
lack of disease is partly due to the
lack of rain many areas have been
experiencing, but also to the resist-
ance bred into the varieties
planted in those fields. If wet
weather does prompt fungicide ap-
plications, the disease resistance
provides some of the protection as
no fungicide is 100% effective, can
be applied at the ideal time, or
lasts long enough to keep the
plants completely free of infection.
Questions are still coming in as
to whether fungicide applications
can still be made to wheat fields.
At least in south-central South
Dakota, about all of the spring and
winter wheat fields are in the milk
stage or later, well past the labeled
time for fungicide applications.
The good news is, once wheat is at
the hard-dough stage, which isn’t
far off, late-season disease infec-
tions will no longer be harmful.

Young people from across the
state participated in the South
Dakota Farmers Union’s annual
state camp June 2-7 at Storm
Mountain Center near Rapid City.
Nearly 100 youth ages 14-19 spent
the week setting up their own coop-
erative businesses, touring the
Black Hills, listening to speakers
and learning leadership and vari-
ous life skills.
Attending this year’s state camp
from Haakon County were Ashton
Reedy and Tyana Gottsleben, both
from Philip.
“This year’s state camp was an
extraordinary time of learning as
these young people participated in
cooperative business training and
learned valuable leadership skills
that they will take with them for
the rest of their lives,” said Bonnie
Geyer, state education director.
The week featured many activi-
ties like hiking, sports and bon-
fires. There is also a day where
youth go on tours in the Rapid City
area. Speakers at this year’s state
camp included Sioux Falls Storm
head coach and Roosevelt High
School teacher Kurtiss Riggs who
spoke about leadership, Elaine
Doll, a marathon runner in her 70s,
spoke to the young people about
personal motivation in her discus-
sion called “Life is a marathon, so
double tie your shoes!” Troopers
from the South Dakota Highway
Patrol spoke to the campers about
traffic safety, the dangers of tex-
ting and driving and underage
drinking. Rebecca Caselli-Smith
with Lutheran Social Services
spoke to campers about bullying
and self esteem.
Throughout the week, young
people run their own cooperatives.
There was the co-op store, newspa-
per, insurance company and even a
co-op coffee shop. Campers put real
money into the credit union at the
start of camp to buy things from
the co-op store and they got a
checkbook. “These are real life sce-
narios that they’re living out dur-
ing the week of camp,” Geyer said.
“The kids that go to state camp will
be better prepared when they go to
college and have to balance their
bank accounts.”
They were all on boards of direc-
tors of their various cooperatives,
took out loans, paid bills, and ran a
real business. On the last evening
of camp, campers selected the next
year’s junior advisory council, a
group of six campers who have fin-
ished at least their junior year of
high school. They will help plan
and facilitate the 2014 state camp,
as well as help South Dakota
Farmers Union throughout the
year at different events, including
Farmers Union Day at the South
Dakota State Fair.
Attending this year’s Farmers Union state camp were Ashton Reedy, left, and
Tyana Gottsleben, both from Philip. Courtesy photo

Saturday, June 29, at Somerset
Court, we had the movie, “Man of
the House.” It was a light movie
with pretty people. My problem is
that I can’t hear movies, even if
they are ever so loud. I did enjoy
the fragrance of the popcorn. It per-
fumed the whole building! We had
ice cold root beer, too. Later a
bunch of us played five crowns for
a couple hours. John Kraft was
here to visit his mother.
Thank you to the Mike Hansen
family who sent kind birthday
wishes on a cute birthday card and
two photos of my beautiful great-
grandchildren. Naturally I think
they are beautiful! One of the pho-
tos I feel was taken up at Lake Is-
abella with Mike, Owen and Ella
looking out over the arm of the lake
to the other side.
My niece, Wanda, sent a good
letter about their happenings and
what’s blooming. She said that a
branch in their tree lot fell and
broke a couple of boards in their
wooden fence. Ed had the fence
mended already. Wanda and Ed go
over to Ed’s farm near Stickney
and Ed helps with whatever farm
work is in progress. Wanda said
that she takes along projects she is
working on such as cookie dough to
bake, quilting, crocheting or even
laundry. There are also plenty of
church activities and town celebra-
tions to go to. She said that they
are expecting a visit from David
Mowrey, her niece’s son. He is com-
ing to South Dakota to attend the
wedding of his friend.
Wanda sent the whole poem,
“What Is So Rare As A Day In
June” by James Russell Lowell.
She remembered that I was looking
for it. Thank you, Wanda. I will put
it in the Somerset Court scrapbook.
She also sent me 10 forget-me-not
seeds. Thank you, Wanda. They
are very tiny and I need to get some
more hospitable dirt to start them.
Wanda and Ed have a nicely varied
vegetable garden which they enjoy.
My daughter, Vinnie Hansen,
Santa Cruz, Calif., was reading, on
TV, “Writers Who Kill.” It would
have been fun to hear, but I didn’t
know how to find it. She would let
people who suggest a title for her
new Carol Sabala mystery in
Happy birthday to my grand-
child, Cecelia, July 2. She will be
three years old.
Sunday, June 30, at Somerset
Court we had nondenominational
church services with Rev. Paul and
Mrs. Gladys Lupkes. We only have
them on every fifth Sunday. Rev.
Paul talked on the theme of patri-
otism, and the tide of mostly poor
Europeans who came to America
hoping to become free of dictators
and kings, and to set up a govern-
ment wheriein they would have a
vote. They hoped to become
Jack Humke played for singing
and we sang “American the Beau-
tiful” and the benediction song. We
received nicely printed leaflets out-
lining the service. Scripture was
quoted, being Psalm 33:12,
“Blessed is the nation whose God is
the Lord, the people whom he has
chosen as his heritage.” Isaiah
60:12, “For the nation and kingdom
that will serve you shall perish;
those nations shall utterly be laid
waste.” Micah 4:3 “He shall judge
between many peoples, and shall
decide for strong nations far away;
and they shall beat their swords
into plowshares, and their spears
into pruning hooks; nation shall
not lift up sword against nation,
neither shall they learn war any-
Rev. Paul and Gladys brought
cookies so after church we trooped
down to the dining room and had
cookies and coffee. We should do
that every Sunday. It makes
church more of a social event.
Anne Brink and Blanche Har-
mon sat in the alcove by the front
door in the calm afternoon, after
church and Marilyn Butts and Vi-
vian walked around the building as
far as the sidewalk goes. The sky
was beautiful.
July 2, Vivian had company,
Darlene Baye and Gay Logan,
Philip, were in Rapid City for ap-
pointments. Thank you for coming
to see me. We had a good visit. Gay
reported that her son, Russ, is
working in Rapid City during the
week. He had several job offers and
so he is only a little retired! His
wife, Barbara, is holding down the
fort in the Badlands.
I showed the ladies the old
Grindstone Women’s Club photo
that Nancy Haigh sent me. Gay
Logan mentioned that though the
Grindstone Women’s Club is offi-
cially disbanded, they still have of-
ficers and meet for special
occasions. Their present officers
are Arlyce Griesel, chairperson, Es-
ther Knutson, secretary, and Bev-
erly McDaniel, treasurer. One of
them may know where the Grind-
stone Women’s Club scrapbook is.
Gladys Smith used to have it. It
may have some information in it
about this photo.
In Philip, there is a lot of work
going on on the street that comes
up from downtown past the First
Lutheran Church and on up to
where Scotchman Industries is on
both sides of the street.
Vivian’s granddaughter, Sheri-
dan Hansen, came for scrabble.
(She was giving swimming lessons
to kids at the Y Wednesday.) We
gave ourselves a challenge and
chose a scrabble theme of hot and
cold related words. It was amusing.
We had a liberal stretch of word as-
sociations, like we have had our
quote of hot days. Or, yoga can
make you hot. Or a cube of ice
would be nice.
Marge Self has had several rela-
tives visiting. July 1, she enter-
tained family at the Somerset
Court guest dining room.
July 1, Anna Kendig wrote in my
journal, “Had a wonderful day with
Grandma!” Anna is from Dennison,
Minn., and she is Floy Olson’s
Thank you to Darlene Baye for
your nice note. She mentioned the
fireworks out at Lake Waggoner for
the Fourth of July. We used to al-
ways go out to those, for years and
years. The Philip Volunteer Fire
Department put them on and set
them off on the far side of the lake.
Mary Carrier, Somerset Court
resident, has grown some wonder-
ful big plants of miniature toma-
toes. Now Mary is sharing her ripe,
delicious tomatoes. Thank you,
The Philip Pioneer Review for
July 4 arrived July 5, 2013. There
was an article about the Pat and
Mary Lou (Fortune) Guptill family
and their award for good conserva-
tion practices on their ranch.
Del Bartels had a clever column
about how our flag has grown and
The column, “Lookin’ Around,”
by Syd Iwan waxes poetic with his
enjoyment of nature’s phenominal
colors, wild flowers and sunsets. He
says beauty is good for the soul.
My daughter, Delores, (Mrs.
Donald Denke) Pavillion, Wyo.,
wrote that hay is good and thick
and the weather has been favor-
able for baling. Their son, Richard,
has been haying in between other
work such as sorting sheep and
hauling some to market. Their
daughter, Doneen, and husband,
Tom Fitzsimons, and son T.J.,
Cody, Wyo., have been there to
help move irrigation pipe. Tom
took Delores and Don to Casper for
one of Don’s radiation treatments.
Their daughter, Juanita, Mt.
View, Wyo., has been home to help
sort sheep and whatever work is at
hand. Their daughter, Crystal
Denke Jackson, was on her way to
visit and also help out.

Four generations
Seems like this has been a busy
week around the neighborhood.
The Smith family were all home for
their reunion. They came early as
Rich was in the hospital in Philip
and they wanted to spend time
with him. He was able to get out of
the hospital and attend the family
reunion, which he had been looking
forward to. They reported that
there were 98 in attendance Satur-
day for the family picture this year.
Lincoln went to Aberdeen for the
July Fourth family reunion of his
fianceé, Ella Chambels. He re-
turned home Saturday and went
up to the Smith family reunion.
Steve and Roxie Smith visited
me on the morning of July 3 and I
met them and Larry Smith later in
Philip for lunch. It was good to visit
with them although it was cut too
short because I had a doctor’s ap-
I visited Vi Olney. She sure looks
good for all that she has been
through. She said that she will be
there for awhile as she needs some
more therapy.
I took my granddaughter, Kiley,
for a little drive and she wanted to
hear about some family history. So
we went up to the Bert Humbert
place which was the Climax Post
Office and roadhouse for freighters
going through from Pierre to Rapid
City. My grandparents ran this
and this is where my grandmother,
Mary (Teeters) Smith, and her
niece drowned in the 1915 flood.
There used to be a marker there
with her name on it but Mel Smith
took it home so it would not get de-

homestead and I showed her where
my half-sister, Merel, who died in
infancy was buried. Then on to the
Grindstone Hall that my dad,
Frank Hauk and Jack Dean helped
build along with many other neigh-
bors in the community. The hall
was built in 1925. Jack Dean was a
good brick layer so he did the tile
work. Then we proceeded over to
the Tucker Smiths to see the old
tile house where Jake and Elma
Smith lived and in which Bus and
Rich and Gladys also lived. Later,
Rich and Gladys built their new
home up on the flat where Rich still
Then we came home. I am glad
Kiley is that interested in the fam-
ily history. Kiley went home on
July 6, when Marvin and Vicki met
Carla in Rapid City to pick her up.
She had to be home for her shots
and other things she needed for
school as she will be attending
school at Gillette this year instead
of Rozet, Wyo. She also had a bas-
ketball tournament July 13 and 14
to play in. She will be returning to
visit her grandparents, Marvin and
Vicki, around the 16th. Taegan will
also be coming to spend some time
here too. Carla is going to be doing
some painting for me.
We didn’t get as much rain this
last week, only about an inch with
.45” one day and .10” and .20” on
other days. We have hopes for more
as rain is forecast for the first part
of this next week and next week-
end. Things are drying up quickly.
Amounts varied around the sur-
rounding area. The country is still
green and it is still pretty to drive
out and about to enjoy.
I plan to get up to the Dowling
Church as during July they have
services up there and a potluck din-
ner after church. This gives one a
chance to visit people from that
Mike and Janice West are here
visiting their parents, Al and
Lenore Brucklacher and Mike and
Marcia West, and families. Al and
Lenore were pleasantly surprised
to see them and are enjoying their
I visited with my nephew, Ver-
non Montgomery, Sundance, Wyo.
He is doing fine and does not seem
to have a problem with cancer, at
this time. He still goes for his
checkups and nothing has re-
turned. His daughter, Kerry, lives
in Sundance, and Trista and her
family live in Belle Fourche and
they have a foster son, Tristan
Tilberg. Tristan and his wife live in
Rapid City and they have a baby
daughter. They all gathered at Ver-
non’s house for the Fourth of July
and some of the grandchildren
stayed on for a visit with their
grandparents for a few days.
Orrin Carstensen called to wish
me a happy Fourth and said that
his family is all well and doing
good. He said that he has to go in
for a couple chemo treatments
every so often to keep his cancer
problem in check. He continues to
work at the coal mine. He said that
his grandchildren are growing up
too fast and some are in high school
Arnold Lewison called and re-
ported that they are all fine and are
enjoying their grandchildren. They
plan to visit in Philip around July
16 through the 20th, when they are
on vacation.
My niece, Vina (Montgomery)
and Ben Morris enjoyed all of their
family in Billings, Mont., over July
4, where their oldest daughter,
Doris, lives. Shellie owns and runs
a music store and gives lessons in
Laramie and Louis is a lab techni-
cian in Casper, Wyo. They lost their
son, Kenny, two years ago. Shellie
taught music in Kadoka and some
in Philip High School several years
July 4, Herb and Hazel Sieler
went to the rodeo at Deadwood.
Otherwise they have just been at
home getting all the weeds and
grass mowed around their place,
which I am sure is a big job. They
have a large area to mow and it is
growing faster this year.
Wayne Schultz has been helping
spray weeds and fixing a leak in my
roof. He takes care of the rocks that
are around the house. It seems that
I have creeping jenny that seems to
thrive there. They come back every
year no matter what, even if we
spray every year. He repaired my
roof a couple of years or more ago,
but with all the dry weather, rain
and wind it damaged the roof.
Rita Ramsey and I enjoyed sup-
per at Marvin and Vicki’s July 4.
Kiley entertained us all by setting
off her fireworks. She had saved
half of them so that when Taegan
comes around the on 16th to stay he
can enjoy the fireworks at his
grandparents’ home. They never
had any rockets as Marvin didn’t
want to take a chance of fires get-
ting started. Besides, she along
with Rita, Marvin, Vicki and I went
in to Philip for the fireworks July 3.
They were very good and they
seemed better than other years, but
we did have an excellent place to
park to see it all, maybe that is why
it seemed better.
Gary and Amber Ramsey were
down Saturday to his mom, Rita’s.
Marvin and Vicki went to Rita’s for
supper and to visit with them.
Rich Smith is at home now and
Steve and Roxie will spend some
time there with him till he is

renewed that all nature seems re-

I feel fire and music under my feet.

Vito M. Portanova, beloved hus-
band, father, grandfather, great-
grandfather, great-great-
grandfather and friend was called
home to be with his Lord and Sav-
ior Jesus Christ on June 24, 2013.
Vito was born June 3, 1920 in
Boston, Mass., to Vito M. and
Josephine Portanova. Much of his
youth was spent in Boston until he
joined the U.S. Navy in 1940. In
1944 while stationed in San Diego,
California, he met the love of his
life, Vera Eckert of Midland, S.D.
They were married May 14, 1944,
and shared 69 years of love to-
Upon completion of his 20-year
military career and subsequent re-
tirement from Point Mugu in 1960,
Vito and his family settled in Ox-
nard, Calif., where he spent the
next 25 years of civilian life work-
ing for ABEX Corporation.
For many years, both as an ac-
tive member at St. Anthony’s
Catholic Church in Oxnard and
later Padre Serra Parish in Camar-
illo, Vito could be found serving his
faith as an usher during Sunday
services. Coupled with his church
involvement, and since 1959, he
was also an active member of the
Knights of Columbus Council 750.
Sports also provided a favorite
pastime that included being a
league bowler, runner, golfer and
swimmer. Saturday afternoon
would find him a devoted fan of col-
lege football or eagerly planning
his next trip to Las Vegas. Most of
all, the greatest source of joy and
passion in Vito’s life was the love of
his family and friends.
Moving to Camarillo, Calif., in
1992, Vito continued being active
in sports by competing in senior
games and winning many medals.
Always enjoying life to the fullest
and never worrying about tomor-
row, he was a man of integrity, wis-
dom, and love who will be truly
missed by all who are fortunate to
have known him.
Vito was preceded in death by
his parents; four brothers and
three sisters.
He is survived by his loving wife,
Vera; daughter, JoAnn Catalano
(Wayne) of Camarillo; sons,
Michael J. (Peggy) of Tehachapi,
Calif., Mark A., Post Falls, Idaho,
and Guy J. (Cindy) Portanova of
Caliente, Calif.; 13 grandchildren,
18 great-grandchildren, six great-
great-grandchildren, and numer-
ous nieces and nephews.
A memorial Mass will be cele-
brated on Saturday, July 13, 2013,
at Padre Serra Catholic Church,
Vito M. Portanova_______________________________
Jean M. Burns, age 90 of Philip,
S.D., died July 7, 2013, at the Hans
P. Peterson Memorial Hospital in
Philip, surrounded by her family.
Jean Mae Burns, the first child
of Frank and Joy Keve Hauk, was
born May 18, 1923. Her childhood
was spent with her siblings,
George, Max and Mary Joy Hauk
on a farm northwest of Grindstone.
She worked her way through
high school by being a mother's
helper to the Bartholmew family
and roomed at the old Winchester
Shirley Burns introduced her to
Homer Burns at a dance in
Milesville and they married several
months later. Dancing remained a
lifelong source of happiness. Jean
and Homer had four children:
Bobby, Jack, Charlotte and Mara-
Jean took great pride in her
homemaking skills. Keeping her
home clean and tidy was of great
importance to her. In fact, her
nephews were pretty sure that
when she wiped their faces there
was Clorox on the washcloth! She
loved making pies, bread, jelly, and
pickles. Her garden was her special
passion. Canning and freezing the
produce gave her great joy. Her
hobbies included embroidering and
making rugs. A local lady who
roomed with Jean and Homer
when she went to high school, re-
called that Jean always "freshened
up" and changed her housedress
when it was time for Homer to
come home from work.
A true child of the 1930s, Jean
frugally saved and stored anything
that might have value or serve a
practical purpose in the future.
When faced with a new domestic
challenge there was always some
stored item that could be modified
or adapted to solve the problem.
The variety of uses for a popsicle
stick was endless! No need to run
out and buy something new!
In her younger years, she was
active in community efforts to im-
prove the quality of life in Philip.
Among her activities she served as
the first president of the hospital
When Homer died suddenly, she
carried on with her family respon-
sibilities since her four children
were all still at home. In addition,
she ran Homer's business with the
help of Red Couch.
Howard Pihlaja, Jean's compan-
ion of many years, survives her.
Jean is also survived by her chil-
dren, Bobby (Gerry) Sloat, Jack
(Marlene) Burns, Charlotte (Larry)
Gabriel and Maralynn Burns. In
addition, she is survived by 12
grandchildren, John (Carol) Os-
burn, Doug (Krista) Osburn, Julie
(Chad) Callahan, Andy (Samantha)
Sloat, Chris (Misti) Burns, Jeff
(Heather) Burns, Robyn (Steve)
Brazelton, Mindy (Lloyd) Metzger,
Jeff (Heather) Gabriel, Danielle
(Josh) Carlson, Dustin (Lynette)
Hummel, and Cassi (Alan) Rislov;
her great-grandchildren include,
Eddie and Jannine Osburn; Anak-
toria, Shane and Baylee Callahan;
Makenzie, Anthony and Zachary
Sloat; Nathan and Jace Brazelton;
Patrick and Will Burns; Taylor,
Brooke and Katie Burns; Sage,
Cedar, Ember and Latham
Gabriel; Cadan and Gage Carlson;
Brayden and Maelee Hummel; and
Rio and Ali Rislov; her brother,
Max (Nancy) Hauk; sister, Mary
Joy Hauk; two sisters-in-law,
Peggy Hauk and Mary Martha
Burns; and numerous nephews and
Jean was preceded in death by
her husbands Homer Burns and
Jud Fennell; her parents Frank
and Joy (Keve) Hauk; her brother
George Hauk; grandchildren
Christy and Bill Osburn; and
great-grandchildren Brace Allen
and Paxton Ryder Gabriel.
Services were held Wednesday,
July 10, at the United Church in
Philip with Pastor Kathy Chesney
Music was provided by Marilyn
Millage, pianist, and Cindy
Nuzum, vocalist.
Ushers were Josh Carlson, Andy
Sloat, Chad Callahan and Alan
Pallbearers were Chris and Jeff
Burns, John and Doug Osburn, Jeff
Gabriel and Dustin Hummel.
Interment was be at the Ma-
sonic Cemetery in Philip.
In lieu of flowers, a memorial
has been established.
Arrangements were with the
Rush Funeral Home of Philip.

Greetings from Kadoka. Time
flies when you are having fun, busy
or just plain working.
Monday in Sioux Falls after Judy
DeWitt, L.T. Works and Bill and I
had breakfast, the guys were busy
working on the water system in our
motorhome. I picked up the car
seat from grandson Eric Seager
and went to get that great-grand-
son, Eli, from the day care so he
could spend some time with us. Bill
and I joined Eric and family in the
park where we had a send off for
Eli’s sister, Aviana Montoya, to go
visit with her dad. Bill and I had
supper at Eric and Chaciel’s then
stopped by Amanda and Adam
Claflin’s and picked up a neat col-
lapsible play pen that only takes up
about 8”x36” when folded up. Eli
spent the night with us.
Don and Vi Moody were at their
Rapid Valley home Monday and
Tuesday and packed up got ready
to settle back in at the ranch for
the Fourth. They had gotten every-
thing done up that way and did a
lot of catch up at the ranch with
yard trimming and still haying
until a few showers came through.
Vi decorates for holidays at both
places accentuated with solar col-
ored illuminations and in this case
with Fourth of July flags and bows.
George and Sandee Gittings had
supper in town Monday evening
with Scott and Lorraine Seiden-
stricker and Tom and Jody Struble.
Tony Harty had a quiet first part
of the week, attending to getting
the mail and check on mowing proj-
Tuesday, we broke camp in Sioux
Falls after having breakfast with
L.T. and Judy. At the first stop to
get fuel the step didn’t work! What
next? Bill got the fuel in and we
pulled aside from the pump and
couldn’t come up with any reason
the step didn’t work so we contin-
ued on to Sutton, Neb., to visit
Shelley Seager and Mike Rath. Eli
got introduced to the farm life, get-
ting to see kittens, the dog, Spike,
and the chickens, including one
mean rooster. Mike was busy wa-
tering corn with a water gun and
the wind wasn’t helping too much.
The week has warmed up with
some showers of rain during the
week in Sturgis, not a lot but
enough to get things wet. Wednes-
day after work, Ralph and Cathy
Fiedler made a trip to Rapid to do
some errands and have some
lunch. Richard and Diana Stewart
called them and wanted to know if
they were going to be home and if
they could spend the night. What a
pleasant surprise! They arrived
early evening and all went out for
supper then returned home and en-
joyed sitting on the deck.
George and Sandee Gittings
made a quick trip to Rapid City
after Sandee got off work Wednes-
day so that George could see an eye
doctor about a problem with his left
eye. He has a detached retina. A
speedy recovery, George.
Tony Harty made a trip to Wan-
blee Wednesday to pick up things
for Shirley Hair
Wednesday, Bill and I made a
trip to Grand Island, Neb., to get a
repair for the step and Eli stayed
home with grandma Shelley Sea-
ger. Bill and I got the step put back
together and it almost worked
right. That project was abandoned
when Bill discovered Mike had
some mowing that needed to be
done, so off he went to do that.
When he was done with that proj-
ect he brought the tractor and
mower home, parked the mower
and he and Shelley hooked up the
chopper and Bill cut a path for the
water line through the corn. Cha-
ciel and Eric Seager and their little
dog got there too late for the won-
derful rib dinner we enjoyed.

Sitting at my computer this
Monday morning, the sky is over-
cast and the air is heavy. We had
an awesome rain of 70 hundredths
the afternoon of the Fourth of July.
It stopped raining before evening,
giving folks a chance to shoot off
those fireworks. And, with that
rain, folks didn’t have to worry
about starting fires. That was a
very good thing. Ranchers are
thankful for those previous rains
we’d had with grasses growing and
hay bales dotting the prairie. And
this last rain we got has been much
appreciated as those spring crops
were in need of a good drink. With
the land so parched early this
spring and seeing the countryside
today with it’s green grasses and
field crops, it’s proof positive what
a blessing Mother Nature’s water
is to those who live off the land.
With two reasons for not having
Midland News last week, it’s time
to get at the news for this week! We
got just under an inch of rain Sun-
day; it came down hard, with water
running down the street and
through the culverts.
Midland’s Appreciation Day will
be September 21 with musical
bands being the parade theme, so
be watching for updates.
Vacation Bible School will
be at the Open Bible Church
from July 29 to August 2 from
9:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. for ages
four and going into sixth grade.
Older teenagers are welcome
to be helpers. This is open to
kids from all three churches.
The theme is Sonwest Round-
up. If you have any questions
you can call Pastor Andy or
Jennifer Bly at 843-2143.
Ernie and Laurel Nemec, their
daughter, Becky, Mrs. Robert
Thompson, and son Josiah, who
live in Sioux Falls, headed out for
a trip to Montana and Yellowstone
National Park. Becky’s husband,
Rob, stayed in Sioux Falls because
of his work. The first stop was Dev-
ils Tower, then on to Missoula,
Mont. While there they attended
the wedding of Katrina Eudy to
Dan Ginsford. Katrina is the
daughter of Mary and Rich Eudy.
Mary is the daughter of Don and
Anna Grace Sheeley who were
Ernie's aunt and uncle. The rest of
their travels took them to West
Yellowstone with day trips around
the park. They enjoyed seeing lots
of wildlife, the hot geysers, and
some devastation caused by the fire
of 1988. They arrived home to Mid-
land Friday afternoon. Friday
evening, Todd and Barby Larson
and sons, Kendall and Logan, ar-
rived from Sioux Falls to spend the
weekend. Supper guests Saturday
evening were all the above and
Tyler and Angel Nemec along with
their children, Tukker and Emry,
and Bob and Verona Evans, Sophie
and Pat Foley, Renee Schofield and
her sons, Landon and Brian,
Kadoka. The evening was spent
lighting fireworks for an early
Fourth of July. Becky and Josiah
returned home to Sioux Falls Sat-
urday morning. Dinner guests
Sunday were the Todd Larsons and
Bob and Verona Evans.
Gene and Audrey Jones went to
Rapid City Wednesday, spending
the Fourth of July with daughters,
Paula Jones and Julie, Jer and
Lane Whitcher. All enjoyed a
potluck picnic at neighbors of Jer
at the ranch near Buffalo Gap. Re-
ports are they had an exceptional
display of fireworks to celebrate
the Fourth. After a great time
meeting all the neighbors and old
friends, they returned home Fri-
day, July 5.
Karel Reiman’s family which in-
cluded Steve, Patrick and Becca
Reiman, Mandan, N.D., and Mark
Reiman, Kadoka, gathered at the
Kathy (Reiman) and Darron Nel-
son’s home in Minnetonka, Minn.,
from June 29 through July 4. Anne
(Reiman) and Maynard Moege,
Mitchell, could not attend due to
another family reunion going on.
Karel’s birthday was celebrated on
Saturday and on Sunday, Leonard
and Anice Reiman and son Jim,
Eau Claire, Wis., arrived to enjoy a
picnic noon meal and visiting. Mon-
day evening, everyone attended the
Twins-Yankee baseball game. For
the rest of the week the men got in
some good days of fishing while
Kathy and Karel took the grand-
kids swimming at the beautiful
lake near Minnetonka. An added
piece about Karel’s daughter,
Anne, – Carolyn Manke showed me
a newspaper article from the June
24 Daily Republic Mitchell newspa-
per. On the front page of that news-
paper was a picture of Anne read-
ing her poem, “Before Burning the
Homestead,” which was included in
the 40th anniversary edition of
“What Makes a South Dakotan?”
Saturday as part of the community
conversation forum at the Dakota
Discovery Museum. The headline
was ‘We are all…South Dakotans’
Sharing stories, leaving legacies. I
like that news heading and our
congratulations to Anne!
Pat and Sophie Foley enjoyed a
few days in the Black Hills this last
week. Renee, Ashley, Bryan and
Landon Schofield and Julian and
Coreen Roseth were at Pat and So-
phie’s to celebrate the Fourth with
I received the following from
Irene Willoughby: “Funeral serv-
ices will be held in Camarillo,
Calif., July 13 for Vito “Port” Por-
tanova, who passed away June 24.
Known as “Port” to family and
friends around Midland, he was
married to Vera Eckert. Vera is one
of the eight siblings of John and
Mary Eckert who lived southeast of
Midland where Vera grew up and
went to rural school. She gradu-
ated from Midland High School in
1940. After graduation, she worked
in Murdo and Sioux Falls before
moving to San Diego. While work-
ing there she met Port whom she
married in 1944. They came back
to South Dakota to meet the Eckert
family. Following that initial visit,
they returned many times to visit,
especially enjoying the Midland
High School reunions. Port met
and made many friends here in
South Dakota. The family all
learned to love him and we will all
miss him.” As Edna visited with me
of her brother-in-law, Port, I
thought back to my walking days to
the top of the hill south of Midland.
While walking I heard “coming
through.” It was Port, not walking,
but running up the hill and fur-
ther. On my walk back down the
hill I heard, “coming through.” “Not
fair” I yelled, for you see he was a
number of years older then me. He
slowed to a walk and we had a good
visit on our way back to town. And
from there a friendship grew! Vera
and her late husband, Port, were
two people who made you feel bet-
ter just by visiting with them. Our
sincere sympathy to the family!
Anyone wishing to send a card to
Vera her address is: Vera Por-
tanova; 4121 Village # 4; Camar-
illo, CA 93010.
Gary and Denise McDaniel flew
from their home in New Mexico to
Sioux Falls last weekend to help
their daughter, Kaycee, move from
Sioux Falls to Ft. Pierre where she
is working with an after school pro-
gram and attending CUC. Her
brother, Cooper, and his friend,
Skylar, came later and Bryer took
them on a quick tour of the Black
Hills one day. They helped brand
late calves Friday, and toured the
Badlands a little before attending
the ranch rodeo that Bryer was
participating in at Interior Satur-
day afternoon. Kaycee’s family all
returned home Sunday.
Brianna Jones' parents, Matt
and Deb Shaeffer, grandson Jett,
and sons, Austin, Caleb, Josh and
Jerrod, were visitors of Matthew,
Brianna and Jordyn a few days last
week. They helped Matthew with
various ranch chores and the
branding of late arriving calves
Friday, and then attended the cer-
emonies at Pierre Saturday. Josh
will be deploying with the National
Guard unit going to Afghanistan
soon. Matthew’s other grandpar-
ents, Nick and Sandy Feller, also
visited Friday. Jett and little Jor-
dyn were the youngest riders at the
branding, “helping” to bring the
cattle to the corral. Later, Sandy
took Jordyn back to the house for a
nap, while Jett rode back to the
house with the grown-ups. Brianna
and Deb had a nice dinner waiting
for the crew.
Randy and Holly Nemec have
been doing a bit of camping lately.
The weekend of June 29 and 30
they attended a girls fast pitch soft-
ball tournament in Sturgis in
which their granddaughter, Mor-
gan Ortlieb, played. The Sturgis
team took third in the tourney.
This past weekend they camped
again in Sturgis to take in grand-
son Tanner Ortlieb's ninth birth-
day and a Colvin family reunion.
Holly's grandmother, Pat Vosberg,
was a Colvin. They enjoyed a mo-
torcycle ride on the Fourth with
Stan and Cathy Evans and also a
ride on the fifth to Hot Springs to
visit old friends.
Edith Schofield sent me the fol-
lowing on Johnny McKillip who
lived in Casper, Wyo., for years.
His kids live in Douglas or Glen-
rock, James, Kim and Karrie. At
one time, his wife, Dotty, worked
with Edith’s sister, Judy, at the VA
in Sturgis for years. Edith visited
Johnny at Park Place Assisted Liv-
ing Center in Casper and six
months ago he was moved to the
nursing home in Douglas. He
passed away at the age of 76 and
his service was in Glenrock. His
mother, Ruth, was a sister to
Edith’s mom, Viola (Hand) Fos-
heim. Our sincere sympathies to
the family of Johnny!
Scott Olson, Devils Lake, N.D.,
came to the Jerry Jones home on
July 3 to see his wife, Lani, and
daughter, Molly, and to be in on the
family gathering over the Fourth of
July. Lani and Molly are spending
some time with her folks, Joy and
Jerry, this summer. July 3, Cassidy
Trapp and Lani made barbecue
ribs for supper. Those there were
Jerry and Joy, Mike and Debbie
Trapp and family, Bob and Jodie
Schrempp and Baxter, Dupree,
Russ and Cindy Sinkey and Zak,
Neil Jones, Cody and Audrey
Jones, Lani and Scott Olson and
Molly and Dick and Gene Hudson.
Joy’s birthday, which is July 4, was
celebrated with birthday cake and
fireworks were shot off later in the
evening. On Joy’s actual birthday,
Cassidy made another cake for
everyone to enjoy and at 12:30 it
began to hail starting out with pea
sized hail up to golf ball sized. It
did some damage to vehicles! That
white stuff is never a welcome
sight! Later that day, Jerry and Joy
and the rest of the group went to
Ft. Pierre for the fireworks display,
which I’ve been told was very good.
Happy birthday, Joy, sounds like
you had a great birthday!
Saturday, Shad, Jenna, Cass
and Cole Finn were at Interior
where the team of Shad, Bryer
Jones, Colter Stout and Clint Nel-
son won second place in the ranch
rodeo. Congratulations guys!
Jeff, Jen, Stetson, Maysa and
Brody Jones spent the Fourth of
July in Gregory visiting with Jen’s
sister, Peggy Herrick, and family of
Michigan and sister, Liz Jacobsen,
who lives at Gregory. It had been a
year since they had seen Peggy and
her family, so it made for a fun
time. Peggy and family and Liz
came to Jeff and Jen’s and every-
one went through the Badlands en-
joying being tourists and enjoying
family time. Everyone left for home
Sunday. Jeff and Jen will be head-
ing for Rock Springs, Wyo., Tues-
day as Brody qualified in shooting
traps which is a part of the Na-
tional High School Rodeo. Thomas
Doolittle, son of Aaron and Angie
Doolittle, also qualified. Congratu-
lations boys and good luck!
Those from Midland at duc in
altum held at Sacred Heart
Catholic Church in Philip from
Monday through Thursday of last
week were Kaelan, Kash and Kar-
lee Block, Cass and Cole Finn, Car-
son and Dane Daly, Rachel and
Emily Nemec and Ellie Nemec.
Nathan and Erin Nemec are at the
farm of the late Edward and Eliza-
beth Nemec where he works with
his father, Mike, and his brother,
Tim. Ellie is Nathan and Erin’s
Morrie and Barb Jones took
their grandchildren, Jon and Jen-
nifer Jones’ kids to the fireworks
display at Philip, July 3 reporting
it was very good with lots and lots
of folks there to watch those fire-
Jarrod Sawyer, Amherst, Texas,
spent the weekend at the home of
Clint and Prerry Saucerman. The
Sawyer harvest crew cut wheat for
the Saucermans for a number of
years. They no longer do harvest-
ing. Mariah and Jesse Heaton, Oak
Creek, Wis., came that weekend
spending a week visiting family
and friends, Mariah’s grand-
mother, Marlin Evans, Philip,
Jesse’s folks, Sandy and Dennis
Heaton, and Mariah’s mom, Clover
Evans. Enjoying dinner at Clint
and Prerry’s on Saturday and hav-
ing a chance to visit with Jarrod
were Wilma Saucerman, Marlin
Evans, Tel and Ellie Nemec and
family, Rapid City, and Jesse and
Mariah. Tel, Ellie and family also
visited with her sister, Stacy
Nemec, and her sister, Beth and
Brad Hand and family, all of
Gathering at the home of Cam
and Michelle Meinzer on the
Fourth of July were Tom and Mary
Parquet, Peg and Roger Johnson,
Pierre, Teresa Palmer, Murdo, Roy
and Carol Hunt, Christine Niedan,
Keith Hunt and Jan Tolton, all of
Midland. Along with the potluck
everyone enjoyed the deep fat fried
fish and grilled bratwurst made by
Tom, Cam, and Roger. The after-
noon was spent visiting and play-
ing farkle. With no little kids
around anymore there were no fire-
works to set off. Times do change.
That is a fact.
With the summer reading pro-
gram in conjunction with the Mid-
land Community Library and the
T-ball and C-ball kids games pretty
much done, which is a sign summer
is moving along quickly. We much
appreciate Jenna Finn being in
charge of the summer reading pro-
gram again this year and those
who helped her with the crafts etc.
Jenna and Katie Sammons were
coaches for the ball teams, which is
also appreciated, as it all takes a
lot of time and work to get every-
thing scheduled, the practices etc.
When they had home games in the
park, which is near where we live,
it was just so fun and exciting to
see all the vehicles parked around
the park for those ball games. It
brought back memories of when
Midland was a booming little town.
When Jenna and I were talking
about that, she mentioned a fellow
who had stopped at the park when
they were having one of those home
games. He was bicycling from coast
to coast and couldn’t get over all
the folks at that ball game in our
little town and mentioned what a
beautiful park we have and how
well kept it was. He was im-
pressed! City worker Lawrence
Stroppel does do a good job of keep-
ing our city park looking nice, not
only mowing, but trimming dead
branches from the trees etc. It’s
much appreciated!
Midland Senior Citizens Center
The senior citizens met at the
center on July 1, 2013, for their
regular meeting, with eight mem-
bers present. President Kandus
Woitte called the meeting to order
and led in the flag salute. The min-
utes of the June meeting were read
and approved. The tresurer’s re-
port was given. Beth Flom moved
to accept the report and George
Stroppel seconded it. The motion
Three cards were sent. The bul-
letin board wasn’t done. George
watered and fertilized the ever-
greens and Mike Stroppel mowed.
Hollie Knost used the center one
day in June. The farmers market is
doing well. Every Friday from 6:00
p.m. to 8:00 p.m. they serve a
lunch. Bingo is played every Mon-
day at 7:00 p.m. at the center with
a good crowd.
Mickey Woitte, reporter
Time to close my column for an-
other week! We had a rather busy
week, our son Les, Vicksburg,
Miss., came for a visit. Jolene
wasn’t able to come as she had re-
cently started a new job and didn’t
have vacation time built up yet. He
was up in Belle Fourche and
Spearfish visiting his brother, Jim,
and family and his sister, April,
and family. He and Jim went on a
motorcycle ride through the Black
Hills, which Les can never seem to
get enough of. He does enjoy the
Black Hills and said it was hard to
leave them, thinking it would be a
good place to retire to some day.
When he left here he stopped in
Mitchell to visit his brother,
Christopher, Stephanie and Laura
spending the night. Les and
Christopher took a bicycle ride
around the lake at Mitchell. He
was pretty impressed with that
lake. His vacation time was up and
time to head home. Christopher
had recently returned from a mis-
sion trip to Juarez, Mexico. He
went with a group from Mitchell,
and said that it was an eye opening
experience. They built a house for
a mom with six kids, who held
down three minimal paying jobs.
They were glad they got to meet
her. He said he would like to do it
again someday. It was the third
mission trip for the girl’s head bas-
ketball coach at Mitchell Christian
and the first time for the rest of
Some food for thought: “Today is
the tomorrow you worried about
yesterday.” Have a good day and a
good week.

other items that we see on a daily basis. But, can you identify them when given
just an upclose snapshot? Here’s one for you to try. The answer will be in the next

Mike’s mother, Janet Rath, joined
us for supper. Mike kept vigil over
the water gun late into the night.
Thursday, July Fourth, the
Stewart’s packed up their things to
go up in the Black Hills camping
for the weekend. Ralph and Cathy
Fiedler and their neighbor, Bev
Bruce, headed for Belle Fourche to
join the family to watch the annual
Fourth of July parade. Belle had a
good rain during the parade but it
didn’t stop the fun, there were over
200 entries. Don Klumb drove the
truck for the place he works. After
the parade, Ralph, Cathy and Bev
stopped for some lunch and re-
turned home. Had a quite after-
noon. I got things ready for supper
and later Ralph went to work. The
Hanson and Klumb families ar-
rived early evening for supper.
After supper, an evening of sitting
on the deck visiting. Eric and
Sherry shot off some of their fire-
works while they waited for the
city of Sturgis to shoot theirs. At
dark, Bev Bruce joined Cathy and
the family in the backyard for pop-
corn to watch city fireworks. After
fireworks everyone headed for
After sleeping on the step prob-
lem, Bill did some more trouble
shooting Thursday morning and
traced the lines and discovered the
problem and all was good. Bill
raked what he’d mowed the day be-
fore and Mike baled, they worked
at that until all done. Eric, Chaciel,
Shelley, Eli, Janet and I went to
Bonnie Moses and David War-
mann’s for a great feast with a lot
of friends of theirs. Bill and Mike
joined us in time to eat. Dave
builds his own bows, arrows and
spears and many of us enjoyed les-
sons on Adelaide spear throwing.
Bonnie found a toy car for Eli and
that entertained him a good share
of the day. The doors opened and
the horn worked. That evening at
Shelley and Mike’s, Eric and Cha-
ciele shot off a bunch of fireworks
for us, then we went a little way
down the road and watched the
Sutton fireworks.
Friday things were busy at the
little farm by Sutton. Many were
involved in moving the water gun
and pipes to a new location. Eli also
kept us busy keeping track of him.
Other guests arrived for an after-
noon barbecue. Janet Rath joined
the group as well and it was a
pleasant supper, but city boys can
figure out so much stuff to get into.
The ground hay pile got them
pretty itchy.
Friday, Tony Harty went to Inte-
rior and enjoyed the Ranchers
Rodeo and had supper out.
Friday, Don and Vi Moody were
actually starting their celebration
to drive to Chamberlain, but they
turned around at Belvidere when
they drove right into a black heavy
rain shower so pulled back into
Kadoka where they watched the
storm spreading into quite an area.
They drove back into their ranch to
find .60” in the rain gauge for a
total, so that was welcome. They
also have a gauge now at the gate
into one of their cattle pastures and
they both matched for a change.
Saturday, Don and Vi Moody
again started out on their weekend
outing plans and drove east to Ft.
Thompson/Lake Sharpe. They had
dinner in Murdo at the Pioneer
Auto Museum, cafe, and gift shop
mingling with the tourist crowd.
They continued on east to Reliance
and north to Lake Sharpe, parking
near the fishing and boat docks,
walked over to the campground
and picnic areas and visited with
lots of folks gaining recent informa-
tion regarding the camp sites and
reservations, etc. Don and Vi have
a favorite spot picked out from
their recent adventures to the area
camping near the point near the
water and can fish practically out
of their camper back yard. It was a
nice drive and the area is so green
and pretty – beautiful drive cross-
ing the bridge at sundown – lots of
swimmers on the beach and boats
up above on the dam as well as
below in the tailraces and stilling
basins. New construction looks re-
ally good in the area around and
below the dam after all the flooding
reported down that way.
Matt and Mike Schroeder,
Plankinton, Thomas Pietrazak-
Schroeder, Yankton, and Taylen
Trisco, Luverne, Minn., spent sev-
eral nights at the Gittings’. They
are part of the crews putting up
wheat hay on the Diamond Ring
ranch west of Hayes.
Saturday was a busy day with
Shelley Seager and Mike Rath. In
the evening, Eric, Chaciel and
Mike got into a wrestling match on
TV and Shelley, Bill and I went to
car races in a little town not far
Charles Gittings helped with
haying at George's Saturday and
Sunday. Kelsey Gittings also ran a
tractor and rake Friday, Saturday
and Sunday. Pee Wee and Jared
Hook came out to George Gittings'
Saturday to help get water to the
cattle, as the dam is getting very
Sunday, Eric Hanson and Don
Klumb came to Sturgis to help
Ralph Fiedler put up a fence in the
back yard and Bev’s backyard to
keep the deer out. They are tired of
the deer eating up everything
planted. After Cathy got home from
work, Sonja Nonnanst, Whitewood,
brought over a dessert for her
birthday. Bev joined them. Later in
the evening, Ralph and Cathy went
to Spearfish for supper with the
family where Lynette works to cel-
ebrate her birthday. Tessa Klumb
was the only one missing and she
was with a friend in Rapid spend-
ing a few days. A good supper and
visiting was enjoyed by all, then
they enjoyed the birthday cake that
Sherry had made. Lynette got time
to sit down and enjoy it with them.
After cake and opening cards, the
family headed for home and left
Lynette working. A happy birth-
day from all of us here, Cathy, and
many more.
Sunday, a spotty little shower
came through south of Philip at
Don and Vi Moody’s, but not
enough to stop their new, but not
so fun, project of taking out their
entire front deck. They have a new
plan for their entrance out front
now to make maintenance easier
with concrete and wrought iron in-
stead of wood and painting for their
west patio and stairs to the garage.
It's so easy to tear things apart but
designing the new one can be chal-
lenging. At least some of the
stringers can be recycled for the
framing when the cement is
poured. There is always entertain-
ment when you live on a farm or a
ranch and even a mini-ranch along
a busy four-lane highway near an
airport near a big city! Baby
skunks in the new enlarged fenced
in backyard at Don and Vi's Rapid
Valley place caused much fun for
the border collies when Vi suddenly
heard a loud clamor and hurried
outside to find out what was the
matter. There were two baby
skunks running along the fence –
but they must not have been old
enough to spray yet, thank good-
ness! And the little guys trucked
along and went out in the corner
where obviously they came in at,
near the electric pole in the corner.
Speculation has it that their mom
was hit on the highway the day be-
fore (the real deal odor) and they
were on their own. Anyway, they
waddled off along the road and
away toward Rapid Creek out of
Sunday, after breakfast with the
family at Shelley and Mike’s, Eric
Seager and family were on the road
to Sioux Fall and Bill and I on the
road home. Tony Harty came by for
a visit after we arrived in Kadoka.

The celebration on the Fourth of
July at the Milesville Hall drew
over 150 people. The beef was ten-
der and delicious and the tables
were full of salads and desserts. At
the end of the evening, the
Milesville Volunteer Fire Depart-
ment had their fireworks display.
This event is made possible every
year with the many volunteers
willing to help out where needed.
Thank you!
Mildred O'Grady, mother of
Karen Carley, passed away Sunday
morning. She had been a resident
of the New Underwood nursing
home. Our community extends
sympathy to Phil and Karen and
their family.
Dan and Gayla Piroutek re-
cently took a "baseball" bus trip,
and saw many games, including
the no hitter pitched by Red’s
pitcher, Homer Bailey, in Cincin-
nati against the San Francisco Gi-
ants. The trip also included stops
at Chicago, Niagara Falls, Cooper-
stown, New York, (home of the
Baseball Hall of Fame) Boston, and
Washington, D.C., and they drove
around the Indy 500 track in Indi-
anapolis. Along the way, they vis-
ited daugher, Amy and her family
in Chicago, daughter Erin's in-laws
in Boston, and spent half a day
with Danielle Piroutek in Washing-
ton, D.C. They report mostly green
crops along the way, and lots of
trees. They said it was good to see
the prairie again!
Trevor and Christa Fitch and
boys spent from June 29 until July
4 in Branson, Mo. Some of the
highlights of their trip were the Ti-
tanic Museum, Branson Landing, a
sightseeing cruise on Lake Taney-
como, several shows, the Tracks
(go-carts), and Silver Dollar City.
They had a great time with great
weather (the temperatures were 10

Kianna and Katlin Knutson won
the Eagle Country Dana Dental
Arts competition at Hermann Park
in Belle Fourche, July 5. This
makes them local finalists in the
Texaco Country Showdown music
Out of 12 performers, from
soloists to full bands, the Knutson
duet is now eligible to compete for
the South Dakota/North Dakota
state finals to be held in Beach,
N.D., on August 2.
Returning champions from the
last four years of this level of the
showdown, sponsored by Eagle
Country 95.9 and Dana Dental
Arts in Spearfish/Rapid City, gave
opening performancees for the
evening. Kianna was one of these
four opening acts. Two of the other
performers were Lexi Larsen and
A.J. Masters, both now profes-
sional artists who moments later
were two of the three judges for the
competition. Kianna performed her
signature song “Folsom Prison
Blues.” She thinks that it is cool
doing a traditional male voice song,
and now it is probably the duet’s
most requested piece. Now, having
won the event in 2011 as a solo per-
former, Kianna is the only artist to
have won this stage of the show-
down twice.
The Knutson girls, who are ac-
tively looking for a stage duet
name, performed “Black Horse and
the Cherry Tree” by KT Tunstall
and their own composition “Dash-
board.” They were cheered on dur-
ing the live radio performance by
family and friends from the Philip
area. “We had the best support sys-
tem. With this many people sup-
porting us what could go wrong?”
said Kianna. Katlin added, “We got
a lot of calls later saying they heard
us on the radio.”
Kianna plays the electric/ac-
coustical guitar and Katlin plays
the drum set. They both sing, vary-
ing their ranges to what works,
“We just kind of go with it,” said
Katlin. They are working so both
voices are more equal, rather than
Kainna’s more experienced voice
The first round of the annual
Texaco Country Showdown in con-
junction with Eagle Country 95.9
was held in Deadwood. The second
stage was in Belle Fourche. The
winners of the showdown in Beach
will earn $1,000 and the right to
continue on to the next showdown,
which will be in Wisconsin or in
Minnesota. There, the winners
earn an all expense paid trip to the
national competition where
$100,000 is on the line.
Win or lose, for the Knutsons
this is probably the last year in this
competition. It creates lots of wear
and tear. They wish to go out
gracefully. “We don’t want to be
one of those bands where ‘It’s 2050
and this is going to be the year’,”
said Katlin.
In the meantime, the two have
scheduled performances in the
near future in Philip, Wall and En-
ning. If not going professional in
entertaining, both girls plan to
study medicine. Kianna is leaning
toward dermatology and Katlin is
yet undecided.

The Midland Market held a
Hawaiian luau theme to celebrate
the first day of summer. There
were decorations, summertime
music, tropical food and a pinata
for the kids. “Luau” is Hawaiian for
feast. Though the evening was cut
a bit short because of an approach-
ing storm, the celebration went
over well.
“Second Century provided a won-
derful meal of huli huli chicken,
teriyaki beef, tropical potato salad,
fruit kabobs, sweet bread, pina co-
ladas and coffee. Everyone said
how delicious everything was!
There was also a pinata for the
kids, and some of the more limber
ones tried the limbo. Of course the
vendors were there. Cedar Creek
Gardens had fresh, local produce.
Baked goods were available from
Carolyn, Jessie and Bailey and
handcrafted items from Ruby, Jen-
nifer and Deborah,” said Julie
The Midland Market was open
on Friday, June 14, even with
Scotty Philip Days going on. “Even
with all the doings in Philip, we
had a nice crowd. Probably in the
20-30 range. Beth Flom served
Philly cheesesteak sandwiches and
pulled pork sandwiches with baked
beans, bars and drinks. I saw some
people come down just for the meal,
and to visit,” said Schwalm.
The market’s theme on Friday,
July 5, was a Fourth of July cele-
bration. July 26 will be Big
Top/Circus, August 16 – fun and
games, August 30 and September
are still open for suggestions, Sep-
tember 20 – German night (Okto-
berfest starts September 21). For

meeting as published in the Pioneer Re-
view. Motion carried.
FO Van Lint reported that the Pioneer Re-
view submitted an invoice for the
Matched Bronc Ride advertising in the
amount of $2000.00. She reminded the
Council that the City had only appropri-
ated $1,500 for this expenditure in 2013

Council Member Larson questioned the
June 30, 2013, expenditure's report pro-
vided by FO Van Lint. More specifically,
the economic development engineering
expenses and the golf course account.
FO Van Lint advised that the economic
engineering expenses were incurred dur-
ing the engineer's review of Dale Morri-
son's road access permit through the
drainage area. The golf course account is
a trust account held by the City, but not fi-
nanced by the City. This allows the golf
course to accept tax deductible dona-

Council was informed that the West River
Water Development District has awarded
the City up to $10,000 in grant funds to
assist with completing the hydraulic study
for this area. Since neither this revenue
nor the expense for the study was appro-
priated for in 2013, a supplement to the
budget was asked to be approved.
Motion was made by Harry, seconded by
Arthur to approve the 1st reading of the
following Ordinance #2013-12. Motion

grant from the West River
Water Development District
Board in the amount of
$10,000, and;
WHEREAS, the City of Philip,
South Dakota will utilize said
funds to conduct a hydraulic
study of property currently
under easement with the State
of South Dakota, and;
WHEREAS, this hydraulic
study is being required by the
State in order to explore and
determine storm water
drainage and its potential im-
pact on the City of Philip from
drainage areas located north
and west of the City of Philip -
more specifically; an area north
and west of the City on which
are currently located two stock
dams; a retention pond located
just south of US Highway 14 lo-
cated on property legally de-
scribed as Tracts A & B of
Section 13-1-20; a W.P.A. dam
constructed in 1936 directly
south of the aforementioned

to the City of Philip, and a
drainage area located on Tract
C of Section 13-1-20 of the City
of Philip, and;
WHEREAS, once the afore-
mentioned hydraulic study is
complete, its findings will be re-
viewed by the State of South
Dakota and the City of Philip to

ments issued in 1936 can and
should be released either back
to the City of Philip and/or the
current property owners im-
pacted by said easements,
WHEREAS, this is an unantic-
ipated grant award as well as
an unanticipated expenditure
and was therefore not appro-
priated for within the 2013
RESOLVED, that the City
Council of the City of Philip,

Council then reviewed the engineering
proposal from SPN & Assoc. to complete
the hydraulic study. Ìt was noted that de-
pending on the depth of the study, it is es-
timated to cost between $7,500 and
Council Member Larson questioned if the
study will be done in stages as previously
discussed with Harlan Quenzer, Engineer
with SPN & Assoc.
Jeff McCormick, Engineer with SPN &
Assoc., advised that the plan includes
starting on a small scale prior to extend-
ing further. The depth of the study is de-
pendent on what the State will require in
order to make their determination relative
to the water retention easements and per-
mitting in the drainage area.
Following review, motion was made by
Gartner, seconded by Matt to approve the
engineering proposal from SPN & Assoc.
to complete the hydraulic study for the SD
Hwy 14/SD Hwy 73 Drainage area which
is estimated between $7,500 and
$10,500. Motion carried with all members
voting aye.
Wood/Walden Ave. Utility and Street Ìm-
prov. Project:
Mr. McCormick briefed the Council on the
project's progress, noting that the project
is moving forward without concerns. The
contractors are currently finishing up the
sanitary sewer on the north end of N.
Wood Ave. They also plan to finish the
gravel base up to the High St. intersection
on N. Wood Ave. prior to the 4th of July.
The concrete crews are expected to ar-
rive next week to start on the driveways
and curb and gutter from the Pine St. in-
tersection to the High St. intersection and
Walden Ave. Once the southern portion
of concrete is in place - that crew will
move to the north and begin concrete
from High to US Hwy. 14. Asphalt crews
will move in and place the first of two lifts
of asphalt on the southern portion of the
project including Walden Ave. Once the
first lift is complete on the south and the
concrete is complete on the north - the
first lift of asphalt will be laid on the north
section. He estimates that there is still ap-
proximately 85 to 90 days of construction
work left.
Mr. McCormick went on to note that the
original construction plans included that
of lining the storm sewer that crosses N.
Wood Ave. into the draw area on Charles
"Chuck¨ Allen's property. Recently, Mr.
Allen approached the City, agreeing to
provide a temporary construction ease-
ment in order for the City to replace storm
sewer with an open cut versus the
planned lining. By allowing an open cut
and access to his private property, the
City will see an estimated savings of
$8,000 in construction costs. McCormick
has drafted a change order to this effect,
noting the estimated savings of $8,235.00
to the City.
FO Van Lint reported that Mr. Allen has
signed the temporary easement today
that includes property, legally described
as Lots 01 and 02, Block 08, Highland Ad-
dition, City of Philip, SD.
Motion was made by Matt, seconded by
Arthur to approve the temporary con-
struction easement with Mr. Allen and au-
thorize the Mayor's signature thereon.
Motion carried. Mr. Allen was thanked for
his cooperation and generosity in agree-
ing to this easement.
Motion was then made by Arthur, sec-
onded by Matt to approve Change Order
#01 reflecting the reduction in the con-
tract price of $8,235.00 for the storm
sewer crossing (open cut) contingent
upon the contractor's approval. Motion
Mr. McCormick then went on to advise
the Council that the contractor has rec-
ommended the City televise the new san-
itary sewer mains in lieu of them
performing the displacement and deflec-
tion sanitary sewer test per contract spec-
ifications. Ìn turn, they have agreed to pay
half of the televising expenses as they
feel the televising will be more beneficial
to both them and the City, more specifi-
cally if there is a problem in the main, it
can be repaired immediately to keep the
project moving forward.
Mr. McCormick noted that the construc-
tion contract supports televising with the
condition that the City reserves the right
to hire the contractor for this service. He
stressed that this protects the City by en-
suring that it will be done to our specifica-
tions. Ìn his opinion, the televising would
be more beneficial to the City as it will
provide a visual of the sewer mains,
footages, and connections. An actual es-
timate for this service is not available at
this time, but McCormick estimates the
expense at $1.00 to $1.50 per lineal foot
of sewer main.
By general consensus of the Council, Mr.
McCormick will obtain quotes for the
sewer main televising for their considera-
Council reviewed the SD Dept. of Envi-
ronment and Natural Resources (DENR)
initial inspection report of the project
which indicated that no discrepancies
have been noted to date.

Arthur to approve Rosebud Concrete,
Ìnc.'s pay request #03 in the amount of
$222,119.26 contingent upon receipt of all
appropriate paperwork required for the

E. Pine St./Wray Ave. Overlay Project:
The pre-construction meeting scheduled
for today was postponed until next Mon-
day, July 8th at 3:30 p.m. in the Commu-
nity Room of the Haakon Co.
Mr. McCormick stated that the contractor,
J&J Asphalt, is planning to start the proj-
ect on July 9th. They are estimating their
work schedule at five to seven days, but
possibly longer for the concrete portion of
the project. He also noted that he will be
meeting with PWD Reckling prior to the
pre-construction meeting to review the
area and determine those areas that will
be patched by J&J Asphalt prior to the
overlay. Ìt was noted that the contract pro-
vides a certain dollar amount for patching
and rut repairs.
Ìt was questioned if the patching amount
exceeds the contract allotment, could the
City personnel perform some of the work?
PWD confirmed that they will look into this
further once the needed amount of patch-
ing is determined.
FO Van Lint reported that a pedestrian
called today and reported a sink hole on
the south side of the intersection of Stew-
art Ave. and E. Pine St. Street Dept. per-
sonnel, Jason Petersen, has barricaded
and filled in the area for the time being,
but it is assumed that the culvert is cav-
ing. Ìn addition, Officer Butler has taken
PWD mentioned the possibility of extend-
ing the culvert out. Ìt will be reviewed prior
to J&J Asphalt starting on the overlay as
it will extend along E. Pine St. from the N.
Wood Ave. intersection up Wray Ave. to
SD Hwy 14.
Council Member Matt questioned the ac-
cess to properties throughout the con-
struction areas with both projects being
relatively close in area. He noted that E.
Pine St. provides access to some of the
roads for those along the current con-
struction on N. Wood Ave. Ìn addition, E.
Pine St. is the only access to properties
for a number of residents.
McCormick noted that access will be re-
viewed and discussed during the pre-con-
struction meeting next Monday. He
stressed that they are going to work with
both contractors to ensure that residents
have minimal interruptions with access.
Matt also questioned PWD Reckling rel-
ative to obtaining hot mix from J&J As-
phalt to patch other areas in town? PWD
Reckling noted that he is planning to visit
with Hills Material as they will be in the
area longer, providing the City more op-
tions for patching.
Council reviewed the following
Building/Flood Plain Development Per-
mits: Barry and Edna Knutson - fence;
Rene Konst - replace basement wall;
Marion and Darlene Matt - remove/ re-
place concrete driveway; Donald and De-
lores Poss - fence replacement; Jared
Rutherford - decks, demolish and replace
shed; and, Michael Vetter - concrete pad.
Motion was made by Arthur, seconded by
Gartner to approve the permits as pre-
sented above. Motion carried with Coun-
cil Member Matt abstaining.
At 7:30 p.m., as previously advertised, a
public hearing was held on the application
of Norma Oldenberg for a variance to the
building regulations ordinance #11-
601(a), side yard requirements. Applica-
tion has been made for a variance on the
north property line of Lot 07, Sunny Acres
Addition, City of Philip, Haakon Co.,
South Dakota, to occupy the north five
feet (5') by one-hundred four feet (104')
for the placement of a shed.
Ìt was noted that the abutting property
owner, Phyllis Hanrahan, has submitted
a written statement expressing no con-
cerns for the requested variance.
Ìn addition, James and Norma Oldenberg
have filed a building permit for an 8' by 16'
shed which is dependent on the approval
of the requested variance; and, the repair
and/or replacement of the retaining wall.
The retaining wall will more than likely oc-
cupy a portion of public right-of-way.
Council Member Arthur reported that Old-
enbergs are planning to repair the retain-
ing wall that is currently there. They have
also recognized that, if and when the City
does the Pine St. Phase ÌÌÌ project, it will
more than likely be removed.
With no one appearing for or against the
variance request, motion was made by
Harry, seconded by Arthur to approve the
variance as stated above along with their
building permit as presented. Motion car-
ried with all members voting aye.
CHS, Ìnc. DBA Midwest Cooperatives Ìm-
provement Plans:
Jay Baxter, local manager with CHS, Ìnc.,
addressed the concerns noted by the
Council during their June 3rd meeting.
The first concern was that of the Road
Maintenance Agreement between the
City and CHS. He noted that as re-
quested, the additional verbiage has
been added and approved by CHS. The
second concern was that of the proposed
location for the storm sewer inlets. Baxter
advised that this location is the lowest
point in the area which has been re-
viewed and approved by Council Member
Gartner and PWD Reckling. The third
concern was regarding the proposed E.
Cherry St. boulevard area. This was an
error in the design plans and is being cor-
rected by their engineer's to reflect a ten
foot boulevard between the south edge of
E. Cherry St. and the abutting property
owners. The north edge of E. Cherry St.
will abut CHS's property. Lastly, the fourth
concern was the water main and hydrant
relocation, which he would like further
clarification on from the Council.
Mr. Baxter noted that during the initial
planning stages of the project, CHS
agreed to take responsibility for the water
main that would need to be moved from
its current location as it will run under their
proposed fertilizer plant. His concern is
that the water main extension that the
City proposed will only service the hy-
drant that was also recommended to be
relocated north of the Hansen's Hide &
Fur building. He noted that the neighbor-
hood already has a hydrant and this
would only serve as a secondary source
for an elevator fire. They are estimating
this expense at $12,000 and in Mr. Bax-
ter's opinion; it is not cost beneficial to
Mr. Baxter went on to say that during the
project site review with Gartner and Matt,
they considered CHS's location for the
water main and hydrant as proposed in
the engineer's design. The current water
main that would extend under their build-
ing to the current hydrant location will be
abandoned. Ìn turn, they would maintain
the water main to the proposed hydrant
location, which is on the north side of E.
Cherry St., just west of the S. Auto Ave.
intersection and to their fertilizer plant.
(Copies of their plans are on file in the Fi-
nance Office.)
PWD Reckling confirmed that their plans
are satisfactory regarding the water main
and hydrant location. The concern for
protecting the hydrant from traffic was
mentioned and CHS has agreed to install
bollards as a protection barrier.
Council Member Arthur stated that in his
opinion, the hydrant is a benefit to both
the neighborhood and CHS as it protects
their neighbors.
By general consensus of the Council, the
plans presented by Mr. Baxter for the
storm sewer, boulevard area, water main
and hydrant are satisfactory.
Ìt was noted that the City has not received
a copy of the updated engineer's design
plans with the changes noted by Mr. Bax-
ter. Mr. Baxter confirmed that they are still
in the process of being updating and will
forward a copy to the City once they are
Motion was then made by Matt, seconded
by Gartner to approve the Relocated East
Cherry Street Road Maintenance Agree-
ment with CHS, Ìnc. Motion carried with
all members voting aye.
Mayor, Council and those in attendance
thanked Mr. Baxter as he left the meeting
at this time.
Council reviewed the project status up-
date for the Land Acquisition and Environ-
mental Assessment (LA/EA); and, both
the project and construction status up-
dates for the Medium Ìntensity Runway
Lighting (MÌRL) project as prepared by
Rod Senn, Airport Engineer with Kadr-
mas, Lee and Jackson (KLJ).
Motion was made by Arthur, seconded by
Henrie to approve the 1st reading of the
following Ordinance #2013-11. Motion
carried with all members voting aye.

Philip Trails Project:
Council Member Larson updated the
Council on the progress of the trails proj-
ect. She reported that during her visit with
the Haakon County Conservation District,
they offered to donate to the project and
will work with the landscape architect.
Mike, Engineer with Kadrmas, Lee &
Jackson (KLJ) and also the representa-
tive from the American Society of Land-
scape Architects, visited the site. Ìt has
been determined that they will wait on the
design until following the Transportation
Alternative Program (TAP) grant applica-
tion funding decision. Ìf the grant is ap-
proved, this service will be considered at
$10,000 in-kind donation to the project.
Larson is also planning a presentation for
the TAP application hearing scheduled for
July 10th in Pierre. The grant award noti-
fication date is July 15th.
Ìt was also reported that Phase Ì of the
project was denied funding through the
SD Game, Fish and Parks Recreational
Trails Program (RTP). Larson noted that
Philip's project is considerably larger than
the trails that have been funded through
the RTP.
PWD Reckling advised the Council of a
sewer main back up on June 21, 2013,
that was reported at 8:00 a.m. that morn-
ing by property owner, Barry Knutson.
City personnel responded to the area with
the sewer truck and located the manhole
that was blocked. The on-site engineer
for the Wood/Walden Ave. project was
consulted and they determined to set up
a bypass pump to go between the two
manholes. The bypass pumping was not
keeping up with the amount of raw
sewage that they need to remove, so they
contacted The Septic Guys to assist and
finally around noon, they had pumped it
down to the point that they were able to
locate and remove the blockage, which
was reported as a piece of wood lathe
and a concrete stake. Once they were re-
moved, the sewer appeared to be flowing
normally again.
McCormick stated that, in his opinion, the
lathe and stake have been lodged in the
manhole for some time especially, consid-
ering that there has not been any recent
concrete work down in the area.
PWD Reckling also reported that he re-
moved a piece of wood lathe from a man-
hole on the west side of town a few
weeks back.
FO Van Lint noted that to date, two insur-
ance claims have been filed with the
City's insurance provider as a result of
this sewer back up.
Council went on to review a request from
Golden West Telecommunications for an
easement for the installation of fiber optic
cable. The easement is for a portion of
the airport property, on the access road
to Peterson's, in the northwest corner of
the airport property. Since this will be lo-
cated in the runway protection zone
(RPZ) area, the City's Airport Engineer
Rod Senn was consulted and his recom-
mendations are as follows: (1) issue a
Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) during con-
struction and verify that the equipment
will meet the appropriate air spacing re-
quirements; and (2) notify and request
approval from the City prior to any main-
tenance work in the RPZ other than that
of driving through the zone.
Following review, motion was made by
Matt, seconded by Arthur to approve
Golden West's easement contingent
upon them meeting the conditions out-
lined above as recommended by the
City's Engineer. Motion carried.
Motion was made by Harry, seconded by
Arthur to approve the Joint Cooperative
Agreement with Central SD Enhance-
ment (CSDED) for fiscal year 2014. Mo-
tion carried.
Mayor Vetter informed the Council of an
inquiry from a citizen regarding the noon
and ten o'clock whistle as it causes dogs
to bark. Ìt was noted that the whistle has
blown at these times for many years and
the ten o'clock whistle is the curfew signal
as outlined in City Ordinance #9-1401
and 9-1402.
Vetter stated that in his opinion, this
should be a decision referred by the pub-
lic. There are factions of the public both
for and against the whistles. He doesn't
feel that this is a decision the Council
should make, but rather one made by the

sion of Property Management;
WHEREAS, the City of Philip,

PWD Reckling was questioned about the
plans for the old dump truck and how the
patching of potholes is coming along.
Reckling stated that he would recom-
mend surplusing and selling the truck at
the next Philip Livestock Machinery Auc-
tion. As for patching, they are still working
on them.
Council Member Larson questioned if
there is a process for repairing potholes?
Reckling stated, "When they show up, we
try to get them fixed.¨ This is all depend-
ent on time and if they have hot or cold
mix on hand.
Council reviewed a quote from Moses
Building Center for the materials to re-
place the municipal building office roof in
the amount of $2,523.87. Ìt was noted
that the City only appropriated $3,500 for
contract services in the municipal building
budget. This amount will cover the mate-
rials, but not the labor. Ìn turn, the supple-
ment previously approved will assist in
covering the total expenses for the im-
Ìt was questioned who the City will hire as
a contractor to install the roof. PWD
Reckling mentioned contacting Tom Swift
and Branden West for quotes. Should the
labor exceed the budget, the City person-
nel may be able to install the steel if the
contractor sets the rafters.
By general consensus of the Council, the
quote presented by Moses Building Cen-
ter was tabled until quotes are obtained
from contractors for the installation of the
Council reviewed a request to publish a
tree maintenance reminder in the news-
paper. Ìt was noted that the City has re-
ceived various complaints of trees
overhanging sidewalks, alleys and streets
which interfere with pedestrian traffic and
damage city equipment and therefore are
in violation of Ord. #7-107.2.
DFO Smith advised the Council that the
process utilized in the past is similar to
that for publishing the property mainte-
nance reminder for mowing. She stated
that this is a cumbersome task as with the
tree maintenance, the entire town is in-
spected for trees in violation and those
properties that fail to comply following the
deadline stated in the public reminder are
personally contacted. She also men-
tioned the possibility of addressing the in-
dividual complaints as they are received
like other nuisances.
Ìt was mentioned that it may be cost pro-
hibitive to forego the notice this year and
address them on a complaint basis only.
Council Member Gartner also suggested
publishing this in the spring along with the
property maintenance notice.
By general consensus of the Council, the
notice will not be published and over-
hanging trees in violation of Ord. #7-
107.2 will be addressed on a complaint
basis only.
The swimming pool report was reviewed.
Ìt was reported that registration for swim
lessons has exceeded years past. The
pool revenue through June 30, 2013, was
reported at $1,133.42 for concession
sales and $10,980.68 for daily admit-
tance, passes, swim lessons and aero-
The monthly Water Dept. report was re-
viewed. The water loss for the month of
June was reported at 7%.
Council addressed the 7:10 p.m. sched-
uled agenda item at this time as Mary Kay
Lusk was not present during the course
of the meeting. Ms. Lusk has presented a
request to place her single bungee jump
trampoline business on City property,
more specifically in the north parking lot
of the Kiddie Park.
FO Van Lint advised that according to Ms.
Lusk, this will be a traveling business so
they would only set it up during various
events, i.e. during "Hot Summer Nights.¨
Discussion ensued regarding the request.
Recommendations from Attorney Tollef-
son were reviewed as well as additional
recommendations from the Council.
Following review, motion was made by
Gartner, seconded by Henrie to approve
Ms. Lusk's request to place the single
bungee jump trampoline on City property
contingent upon the following: provide
proof of insurance that names the City as
additional insured; post a warning sign
that states, "this is not a City sponsored
event¨; notify the City when the equip-
ment will be set up; and, that the equip-
ment cannot be stored on City property
when not in use. Motion carried.
PubIic Comments:
Del Bartels stated, as a citizen, he is in
favor of the noon and ten o'clock whistles.
In Other Business:
Ìn observance of the 4th of July Holiday,
City offices will be closed on Thursday,
July 4th, but residential garbage collec-
tion will still take place. Ìt was also noted
and determined that the offices will re-
main open on July 5th as well as the Rub-
ble Site will be open on July 6th.
The Statewide Transportation Ìmprove-
ment Program (STÌP) Hearings are
scheduled for July 23rd in Pierre and July
24th in Rapid City. Mayor Vetter plans to

Gartner to authorize DFO Smith's atten-
dance at the SDML Policy Meeting on

Thank you, Sonia (Meyers)
Nemec. Your Foster article in the
June 27th Pioneer Review was
so special to our whole family –
you brought a lot of tears to our
eyes. You and Jerry were such
great classmates to Les and
MaryLou, so it was pretty special
to have someone who knew us
write about our family. Sonia,
you always were such a history
bug in school, and could write
and create a story with such
ease. The Pioneer Review is very
fortunate to have you.

Residents of the Philip vicinity
kept a very close watch on Lake
Sunshine over the weekend, as it
was on the verge of washing out
about a 60 foot long portion of the
dam, spilling it’s contents on graz-
ing and farm land below. With the
heavy rains in that immediate area
the past several days, caused the
twenty-nine year old dam to store
capacity amounts of water and ex-
treme pressure forced the dam to
seep water.

75 Years Ago - July 7, 1938
Grindstone News … A cloud-
burst here Thursday evening, June
30, caused the highest flood since
1915. We can’t give a complete re-
port of the storm; there is no get-
ting around the country except on
horseback, and everybody is too
busy trying to get his fences fixed
to hold something, to be running
around horseback. The road is all
right from Cottonwood to Grind-
stone. All bridges at McClures,
Deans, Humberts, Hauks and For-
tunes, a dozen in number, are out.
Deans lost their chickens and
turkeys. The water came up to the
corner of the house, so they left and
went to Mrs. Joyces. The water
came so close to Fortune’s house
that they moved out, too, and went
up to the barn, on higher ground to
We hear that Orville Louisons
also vacated their house and spent
the night on a hill. Mrs. George
Kennedy lost her turkeys, about
60. Water ran through Humbert’s
barn, and also through Paul Wal-
ter’s barn, and we hear it washed
the barn at the Deadman school-
house away. Earl Teeters house
was surrounded by water, and
when it went down he found a lot
of potato plants there. They were
probably washed down from Alvin
McClure’s patch up the creek.
Everybody is afraid Mrs. Alvin Mc-
Clure lost her turkeys, as their
coops were down on the creek.
The big rain seems to have been
mainly along Dirty Woman and
Deadman Creeks, witch were the
highest ever known. Mr. Eggen re-
ports a five inch rainfall there, but
most people around here, where
the heart of the storms struck, re-
port abut seven inches from their
trusty gallon cans. West of here,
Fischers, Betty Denke, Willuweits
and others were hailed out. Some
hail fell here but did not do much
damage. Alvin McClures lost over
200 turkeys.
Vivian Hansen came home from
Rapid City with the 4-H campers
last Wednesday and visited at
home till Monday, when she re-
turned to business college in Rapid.
