Four members of the Philip
High School German Club and
their three chaperones joined with
other schools in South Dakota and
Minnesota to make a 41-person
group that toured Europe from
June 19 through July 1.
The students were Cole Rothen-
berger, Jane Poss, Garrett Snook
and Rachel Parsons. The chaper-
ones were Betty Berry, Mary Poss
and Deb Snook. The Customized
Student and Adult (CETA) tour
put them in Berlin, Germany, the
first day. Coincidentally, Presi-
dent Obama and his family were
there on the same day, and the
CETA group had to rearrange its
agenda because of political secu-
rity. As the student group ad-
justed to the German language,
foods and the money exchange,
they toured the Checkpoint Char-
lie Museum, Brandenburg Gate
and Topography of Terror Mu-
Other German cities visited
were Weimar, Leipzig, Nurnberg,
Modlareuth and Munich. They
toured Munich on bicycles, and
saw its Olympic stadium. They
also toured the infamous Dachau
Concentration Camp.
“This was an amazing experi-
ence for me, and I learned to ap-
preciate a few things while we
were in Germany – ice, free rest-
rooms, air conditioning and cold
water, mainly,” said Parsons. “On
the other hand, American choco-
late is now really disappointing.”
In J. Poss’s opinion, the most
surprizing aspect of the trip was
seeing first hand how war damage
still shows in most of the cities.
G. Snook was impressed by the
buildings. “All the old, antique
buildings were very nice looking.
They were very preserved,” said
Snook. He has relatives from Ger-
many who have visited his family
in the United States.
Rothenberger liked that the trip
was easy. The communicating
was easy, everything was not
stressful, and it was easy for him
to enjoy himself.
The group also visited Austria
and Switzerland. They saw the
birthplace of Mozart, fortresses,
castles, the Alps and the 40-mile-
wide country of Liechtenstein.
One of the more humorous or
embarrassing situations for J.
Poss was being in a packed gift
shop full of breakable objects,
speaking relatively next to noth-
ing of Swiss or German, still car-
rying a huge backpack from
hiking in the Alps, and getting a
serious warning not to knock any-
thing over.
Rothenberger tried several
times to order food by speaking
German, but everybody spoke
back in English, so he pretty
much quit trying.
G. Snook tried to speak Ger-
man, but ended up usually just
saying yes, no and thank you. He
did get pretty good at ordering ice
cream. “It was delicious. They
have a lot more flavors,” said
Snook. “I like their schnitzel a
lot.” He compared schnitzel to
chicken fried steak.
While J. Poss thought the
Newschwanstien Castle in
Bavaria was noteworthy, Snook
thought the most fun part was
hiking in the Alps. Rothenberger
was also impressed with the Alps,
the highlight probably being a cog
train that climbed the steep
slopes. He, also, brought back
‘tons’ of chocolate.
Berry, who has made the Ger-
man Club trip many times before,
said that the students were great
travelers and have many wonder-
ful memories. “Traveling to other
countries is a life changing expe-
rience. There are many things
that one takes for granted in one’s
own home area. Traveling opens
up the eyes to a broader world,”
said Berry.

Fire burns northern Haakon County hay field
Shortly afer 3:00 p.m. Wednesday, July 10, a fire started in a hay field where Casey Fortune and family members were
baling hay. It is believed that the baler, which was a total loss, started the fire. The tractors did not receive any damage. The
Milesville and Philip fire departments were called to the fire, but most were called back as Fortunes and the first Milesville
truck to arrive had the slow moving fire under control. Fortunes had a pickup nearby with a water tank ready in case of a
fire. Relatively few acres were burned in the fire. Photo by Nancy Haigh
The courthouse sprinkler system project began Thursday, July 11. The finished
piping will include a line to the Scotty Philip mini-park at the north end of the
courthouse parking lot. Shown are Dustin Lurz driving the backhoe, with copilot

Lessons were broken with recess during the morning and afternoon sessions of
summer school held in the Philip elementary building, July 8-11 and July 15-18.
Some students benefited from a refresher course, while others just didn’t want
to get too used to being out of classes. Shown above in the morning class were,

Reckling. Not pictured are Gabriella Walker and Sarah Huston. Below, from left,

Summer school fun learning
On Saturday, August 3, the
South Dakota Game, Fish and
Parks Department will host a free
youth event day at Lake Waggoner,
north of Philip.
Youth, depending on their ages,
can participate in all four of the
stations. State GF&P officials and
local volunteers will work with
youth on learning and practicing
archery, pellet gun shooting, fish-
ing and viewing demonstrations on
trapping. The trapping station will
be run by a state trapper. All sup-
plies will be provided.
Each station is anticipated to
last about an hour, though youth
may pick and chose, or repeat.
Wildlife Conservation Officer Zach
Thomsen said that it will be fine is
some kids want to, for example,
fish the entire time.
A free lunch will be provided, but
it is recommended that individuals
bring extra water to drink. Though
preregistration is not required, a
head count would be appreciated
for the needed number of lunches.
The day’s activities will begin
with registration from 8:00 a.m. to
8:30 a.m.
For more information and to pre-
register, call Wildlife Conservation
Officer Zach Thomsen at 859-3006.

Lookin’ Around by Syd Iwan
Surprise, Surprise
Some surprises are rather fun.
Others are less so. One pleasant
surprise this week was when an
unknown plant in our rock border
threw out a huge white flower. I
walk by that area almost every day
and had noticed this plant which I
could never quite identify. At first
I thought it might be a cocklebur.
Then I wondered if it could be some
sort of sunflower. Other possibili-
ties came to mind, but I was never
quite sure enough it was a weed to
make myself pull it out. Of course,
there was a ragweed nearby that I
recognized all too well and didn’t
pull either, but this one at least
was a little too interesting to con-
sider uprooting.
So, a couple of days ago I noticed
this foot-high plant throwing out a
big flower stalk in the middle. I
watched it with interest. Finally,
last evening, it unfurled. It was a
large white trumpet-like blossom
about the size of those you see on
Easter lilies and somewhat similar
except the edges were more
rounded and not as fluted. The
word, “moonflower,” came to mind,
but I wasn’t really sure why. I
showed the posy to wife Corinne
who also thought it might be that
flower. She went on the Internet to
do a bit of research and shortly
found a photo that proved we did
indeed have a moonflower in bloom
in the front yard. Nifty. They are
supposed to smell really good, but
so far I haven’t gotten down on
hands and knees to find out.
Maybe later.
Thinking back, I have probably
only seen moonflowers twice before
in my life. The first was back in
grade or high school when one of
our neighbors in town had a bunch
of them. They were rather impres-
sive since they were big and nice
smelling. Quite a few years later, I
remember seeing some over at
Barb and Ted’s ranch some six
miles from us. They too had a lot of
them and seemed to think they
were quite fine. Even that latter
sighting of these flowers was well
over twenty years ago so the mem-
ory of them was not as active as it
might once have been. Anyway,
having a pretty and interesting
plant grow up and flower all on its
own was a nice surprise, especially
when you have no idea how it got
Then we come to surprises that
are slightly less enjoyable. One of
those was also last evening after
the flower experience. As it hap-
pened, some weeks ago a tornado
or other strong wind tore the roof
off a machine/shop shed at our
river place and tossed it over north
towards the river. On the way by,
that pile of wood and twisted metal
did some damage to our big John
Deere tractor such as bending the
smokestack over, nudging the radi-
ator a little etc. In any event, the
tractor needed to be fixed.
I had considerable difficulty in
finding a way to get the thing to
town for repair, but John finally
came through with a truck and a
method. The tractor was loaded
and taken to town. Unfortunately,
the loading took longer than ex-
pected so the unloading would
have to be after dark. Since the
machine was going to our mailman
who is also experienced in tractor
repair, the delivery to him was
slightly out of town and John was
unsure of the exact location. He
called and asked me to serve as a
guide which was fine with me. I
met them by the sale barn and con-
fidently led them east.
Before long, however, confusion
set in. I didn’t recognize the land-
marks. When we finally came to a
paved road, surprise, surprise, I re-
alized I had no idea where on earth
we were although we were less
than a mile from town. Like I said,
some surprises are not so great. In
this case, there was little left to do
but retrace our steps and try again.
This area, by the way, has several
roads meeting in a small area and
all leading different directions. In-
stead of heading straight east, I
had gotten confused in the dark
and gone northeast. When we then
tried going straight east instead of
northeast, that soon got us to
where we wanted to be. The tractor
was duly unloaded, and we could
all go home. I told John that I could
misdirect him to several other
places if he wanted before I left,
but he said they were fine and
could probably somehow muddle
their own way home without my
help. This was apparently a case of
the blind leading the unsure, but
John was now sure enough of his
bearings to get by without me.
So, yesterday was full of sur-
prises. At least it wasn’t dull. I
even later had to chuckle a bit
about getting lost when I was so
sure I easily knew the way. Ah
well, today has been fairly
straightforward. No odd plants
growing up and flowering and no
roads leading to nowhere. I can’t
decide which was better, yesterday
or today. I guess both were okay.
Tuesday: Clear.
High of 99F.
Winds from the
NNW at 5 to 10
Tuesday Night: Clear. Low of

Ticked ... by Del Bartels
As I walked beneath the scrawny crab apple tree in my backyard, a
clinging wisp of something suddenly covered my forehead. I immedi-
ately squatted to the ground to get away from it, and frantically tried
to wipe it away, panicking that the eight-legged creator of the web was
also panicking on my head or face.
I don’t mind insects and other crawly things, matter of fact, I’m usu-
ally intrigued by them. But I am easily startled, and then freaked out
by them, when they are at first unbeknownst by me. After weaving a
web with a wonderful artistry that can make a Greek goddess envious,
a spider will then wait in the corner with patience for a dinner quest.
I won’t touch the web, and it had better not somehow touch me.
A butterfly gingerly stepping among the hairs on my forearm as I
gaze upon it’s intricate wing patterns is one thing; discovering a half-
engorged tick on my neck is another thing. A squished mosquito is a
victory for me; a splattered red spot on my skin is a queasy mess.
I remember years ago seeing a few dozen mounted spiders in a dis-
play case at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. Agreed, it was
impressive, but the plaque thanking a donor for his estimated thou-
sands of dollars of value for the display was even more impressive. Hey,
give me some formaldehyde, a preservation display case and a few
dozen long stick pins, and I could do the same thing. I don’t think any-
one, except for the spiders of course, would object.
The grand scheme of things has use for creatures like these. They
feed bigger critters, pollinate useful plants, and for good or bad add a
dimension to our own lives. Still, Noah didn’t have to include mosquitos
and ticks on his original cruise ship. In man’s scheme of things, we bat-
tle bugs with insecticides, other predatory bugs, car windshields and
flyswatters, sticky strips and zappers, and by putting up birdhouses
and bat houses. The unseen is what irritates me; chiggers, no-see-ums
and the cloud of gnats that fog up from moist potatos. A huge tarantula
is neat and gets my interest, while a skinny daddy longlegs is yucky
and gets my spine to quiver. Camouflage is a bug’s joke on humans.
Imagine the twig in your hand suddenly revealing itself as a walking
stick bug – a leaf spur becoming a caterpillar – the only bare spot from
thistles starts spouting a horde of defending ants all the way up your
shoe and sock – the only bugs not making nighttime buzzings are the
ones seated down on your skin for dinner. At an evening barbecue,
make sure that what appears to be a “raisin” cake is indeed made of
raisins. Can bugs thrive in your vacuum canister?
As a parting thought, close your eyes and relax. Imagine the almost
unperceptible first touch. Your cheek twitches and you blink. It is noth-
ing. Then your eyebrow hairs shift. Instinct opens your eyes to see if
anything is there. Your hand lightly brushes your forehead. Something
brushes back. Your press it. It squirms! Happy dreams.

Western New Hope Lutheran
Parish sponsored a women’s salad
luncheon, Saturday, July 13, at the
American Legion Hall in Philip,
with Deb Burma, Columbus, Neb.,
as guest speaker.
Burma, a published author, re-
lated that God has called people to
step out of their struggles and
away from their comfort zones to a
life lived on the edge. Such action
can take place despite people being
frozen and paralyzed because of
struggles, worries, insecurities,
fears and more.
The women of the parish pro-
vided the meal for over 80 women
in attendance. Guests came from
as far away as Butte Mountain,
Nev., and Devils Lake, N.D. The
South Dakota communities repre-
sented included Red Owl, White-
wood, Harrold, Rapid City, Pierre,
Ft. Pierre, Norris, Plainview,
Howes, Wanblee, Piedmont, Hayes, Long Valley, Quinn, Midland and
Burma, originally from the Deep
Creek area, is the daughter of Gene
and Dick Hudson. She presented
the special message of “Stepping
Out, to a Life on the Edge.” Burma
travels extensively, delivering her
message. She had just returned
from Canada before visiting Philip.
Her books include “A Chocolate
Life,” “Stepping Out To a Life on
the Edge,” “Treasured – a 30 day
Devotional Journey” and “Beauti-
ful Feet.” Burma also directs
women's ministries, as well as fam-
ily and children's ministries.
Terri Pelle, event organizer,
stated that, beings that it was a
women's luncheon, the parish was
so fortunate to have three women
ministers in attendance – Evelyn
Jahnar, Kathy Chesney and Frezil
Westerlund. There were drawings
for door prizes. Becky Brech do-
nated two Mary Kay gift bags,
which were won by Cassidy Trapp
and Carmen Alleman. Arnis Knut-
son donated two sets of homemade
greeting cards, which were won by
Phyllis Coleman and Loni Olson.
Two “Stepping Out – to a Life on
the Edge” books were given by the
parish and won by Sharon Olivier
and Sheryl Pittman. An angel fig-
urine given by the parish was won
by Janet Hemlspach.
Pelle noted that, for her, Burma
was a wonderful speaker, who de-
livered an inspirational message,
was funny, serious and amazing.
She also felt that the community
was truly blessed to have Burma
here in Philip.
Stepping out – to a life on the edge Dear Editor,
I was happy to get your pink card
in the mail so that I could keep get-
ting the news. I look forward to it.
Harry says the Philip paper gets
news from all over the state (and
I’m thinking beyond), as well as
local – and precious memories of
those who have gone ahead, plus
inspiration and cartoon ads.

For any organization to be suc-
cessful, teamwork must be a core
commodity. For a municipality,
teamwork is absolutely essential.
We all know and appreciate the
teamwork between the various de-
partments, the teamwork between
elected officials and city staff, and
the teamwork between a mayor
and council. But from an elected of-
ficial’s standpoint, I would like to
single out some unsung players in
this whole teamwork scheme.
Without these unsung players, mu-
nicipal government would have a
hard time functioning at all. The
funny thing about it is that every
community has these unsung play-
ers and they are different in every
These unsung players are the
employers in your communities
that allow their employees to serve
the community as an elected offi-
cial. They are willing to share their
human resource with the commu-
nity as a whole, knowing that there
will be additional demands placed
upon the employee’s time and tal-
ent. By allowing their employees to
serve their community as an
elected official, they not only allow
their community to operate today
but they allow the vision and goal
to be set for tomorrow.
Every community depends upon
people willing to serve in an elected
capacity, willing to do the work
necessary in the decision making
process that shapes and molds the
community. And for everyone will-
ing to serve, there must be some-
one willing to allow that person to
So you can see that the team-
work necessary for municipal gov-
ernment to function properly
extends beyond the walls of city
hall and includes many others out-
side of government proper. But
whether realized or not they are
showing that they care what kind
of community they have and want
by allowing their employee to be in
a decision making position in their
municipal government. We could
not do it without the flexibility and
willingness of these employers to
allow their employees to serve their
community as an elected official.
In my 17 years as an elected offi-
cial, I have been blessed with sev-
eral employers who have been
willing to allow me to serve my
community and state. I am hum-
bled and honored by their sacrifice.
So here is a big shout out to all the
unsung players/employers across
this great state of South Dakota!
You not only provide us with great
jobs but you also allow us the op-
portunity to serve the greater com-
munity as well. Your generosity
does not go unnoticed.
The South Dakota Municipal
League was organized in 1934 as a

sion is the cooperative improve-
ment of municipal government in

Rural Livin’
Managing Herbicide
Resistant Weeds
The leadership of the CCA (Cer-
tified Crop Advisor) program
asked the members to take part in
an online survey on the issue of
herbicide-resistant weeds. Nearly
1,700 people responded to ques-
tions about the resistant weed
pressure in their areas, the most
effective management tools and
approaches, and the obstacles to
achieving wider adoption of best
management practices (BMPs) for
managing herbicide resistance.
The respondents came from a
variety of backgrounds, with
roughly 75 percent being retail
agronomists, independent agrono-
mists and retail sales managers.
The remaining respondents were
made up of manufacturer repre-
sentatives, wholesale representa-
tives, Extension and university,
production agriculture, and gov-
ernment employees. The largest
number of responses came from
the north central United States.
Forty-nine percent of respon-
dents reported a moderate level of
resistant weed pressure in their
regions, 34 percent reported mini-
mal, 12 percent heavy, three per-
cent none, and two percent an
epidemic level. When asked what
they felt the most effective tool
was in the fight against resistant
weeds, 52 percent of the CCAs said
different chemical modes of action.
Twenty-four percent listed crop ro-
tation, eight percent tillage, eight
percent Best Management Prac-
tices (BMPs), four percent educa-
tion, three percent new chemical
solutions, and one percent seed.
Herbicide resistant crops have
been available for a number of
years and enjoyed a wide level of
adoption. Nearly 60 percent of re-
spondents thought they were an
extension of the problem, 25 per-
cent thought they were a solution
to the problem, 10 percent consid-
ered them a tool, but not the solu-
tion, three percent considered
them a short-term solution, and
four percent both a solution and
extension to the problem.
When asked what they thought
the next “silver bullet” in the fight
against herbicide resistant weeds
will come from, 57 percent indi-
cated knowledge and implementa-
tion of BMP’s. Nineteen percent of
respondents said there is no silver
bullet, nine percent suggested
chemical solutions, seven percent
thought traits, two percent re-
ported grower innovations, and
one percent suggested mechanical
solutions. Two percent chose a
combination of these choices, an-
other two percent chose all of these
solutions, and one percent selected
As indicated in the second para-
graph, the vast majority of respon-
dents were in some type of
advisory role relative to managing
herbicide resistant weeds and
were asked what describes their
growers’ actions/thoughts when
considering adoption of weed re-
sistant BMPs. Forty percent said
growers would only adopt BMPs if
resistant weeds became a problem
in their fields. Another 30 percent
responded that their growers were
at least trying BMPs or were
"jumping right in" because it was
the right thing to do. Twenty-five
percent stated that their growers
were open to BMPs, but were also
concerned about the cost and effort
of implementing them. Three per-
centthought their growers would
adopt BMPs only if their neighbors
did too, and five percent chose
other options.
Herbicide resistant weeds is a
very real problem, and becoming
worse. Visit www.igrow.org for

More than 110 youth 13 to 19
years of age attended South
Dakota 4-H Youth Council's an-
nual Teen Leadership Conference
hosted at South Dakota State Uni-
versity, Brookings, June 3 -7.
Ben Stangle, attended for his
fourth year. He said that this year’s
theme, “Find the Mystery Within,”
involved activities on following
clues throughout the week for each
camper to learn more about what
they wanted to do with their life.
“I’m still trying to detemine it,
mostly,” said Stangle. “The camp
gave a lot of different ideas for
what I can do.”
The teens also attended work-
shops dealing with health, commu-
nity involvement, leadership and
John Beede, “The Climber Guy,”
was the keynote speaker during
this event. Beede combined power-
ful success lessons with incredible
adventure stories. Youth were
taught the “Climb On! Success
Strategies,” the life changing lead-
ership goal setting principles that
focus on creating positive change in
grades, test scores, club perform-
ance, leadership skills, family life,
physical health and overall happi-
ness. In addition, Beede provided a
hands on workshop especially fo-
cused on teenagers, in which he
showed students how to create a
“bomb-proof success plan” for the
next three to five years.
Stangle said Beede was a really
good speaker, keeping the audience
involved in his interesting stories
which had a message, too. Stangle
said that a lot of people should go
to the annual 4-H teen leadership
Stangle also really liked the two
dances during the camp. The first
was in a big barn a few miles out of
town, “That was really cool,” said
Stangle. And they had a portable
rock wall that the campers got to
climb. “It was interesting racing
people to see who could get to the
top first,” said Stangle.
Community service, along with
leadership, is a large focus for the
4-H youth development program.
This year's conference attendees
participated in various service
learning projects. One project took
approximately 20 youth to the
United Retirement Community
Daycare Center. Here the teens
helped organize and clean storage
closets, sort toys and stuffed ani-
mals and played with the children.
Alex's Lemonade Stand is a foun-
dation dedicated to raising funds to
support finding a cure for child-
hood cancer. During the camp,
youth held a lemonade stand and
donated the raised $282 to the
Boys and Girls Club is an after-
school program providing a place
for children to do homework, learn
real life skills, and have a place to
go. At the Boys and Girls Club in
Brookings, the delegates performed
grounds work and interacted with
the kids.
Teens raised mischief and money
during a fundraiser for Feeding
South Dakota, a hunger relief or-
ganization based on trying to elim-
inate hunger in the state of South
Dakota. Students threw whipped-
cream pies at youth council officers,
with proceeds going to Feeding
South Dakota. Along with it being
entertaining, the event raised

ership conference. Ben Stangle, Milesville, has attended four years. Courtesy photo

As South Dakota youth prepare
for upcoming county and state live-
stock shows many 4-H and FFA
members can also show off their
knowledge and skills during the
livestock skill-a-thons hosted dur-
ing the state livestock shows.
Coordinated by South Dakota
State Univiersity Extension, the
events highlight and reward
youth's knowledge within their an-
imal projects. All 4-H and FFA
members are encouraged to com-
pete in these free events.
There will be age divisions for be-
ginner, junior and senior. Youth do
not need to be an exhibitor in order
to compete and no pre-registration
is required. Youth may enter the
day of the event. Participants can
come during the time frame sched-
uled and expect to complete the
contest in 20-30 minutes.
The top five individuals in the
three age divisions will be recog-
nized. Winners will receive items to
encourage future development of
their own livestock projects.
Awards will be presented during
the various livestock shows.
The South Dakota Summer Spot-
light kicks off the first livestock
skill-a-thon on July 27 from 9:00
a.m. to noon in the Livestock Com-
plex at the South Dakota State
Fairgrounds in Huron. The contest
allows youth to demonstrate their
understanding and practical appli-
cation of livestock managerial
skills in the beef, sheep, swine and
meat goat areas.
Skill-a-thon stations will focus
on animal selection, meats, animal
health and welfare, nutrition and
reproduction. Youth who partici-
pate in the skill-a-thon will be ex-
posed to current and new
technology being utilized in live-
stock production while performing
hands on exercises and developing
their critical thinking and problem
solving skills through demonstra-
tion or matching type activities.
The South Dakota State Fair will
host four separate skill-a-thons:
beef, sheep, swine, and new to 2013
goat. On August 30, the swine skill-
a-thon will be from 9:00 a.m. to
1:00 p.m. CDT and the sheep skill-
a-thon 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. CDT.
On August 31 the beef skill-a-thon
is from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. CDT
and the goat skill-a-thon will run
from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. CDT.
The new goat skill-a-thon will ex-
pose youth to both the meat and
dairy production sides of the goat
In addition to the livestock skill-
a-thons at State Fair, 4-H youth,
ages 11 to 18, that are exhibiting
beef, sheep, or swine may enter the
premier exhibitor program. Partic-
ipants in this contest will practice
their decision making and commu-
nication skills by competing in four
events: industry interview, skill-a-
thon, production and management
quiz, and showmanship. A panel of
judges, representing the South
Dakota beef, sheep or swine indus-
tries, will ask a few short questions
during the industry interview and
score youth on accuracy of their an-
swers and overall presentation
skills. Contact your local 4-H youth
program advisor to register for pre-
mier exhibitor.
Finally, the Western Junior
Livestock Show October 9-12 in
Rapid City will be adding a live-
stock skill-a-thon to its schedule for
any youth to participate.
For a full list of rules and sug-
gested study resources to help
youth prepare for the livestock
skill-a-thons this summer, refer-
ence the South Dakota State Fair
4-H Division Handbook. For ques-
tions about the premier exhibitor
or skill-a-thons, contact SDSU Ex-

The South Dakota Department
of Agriculture’s division of agricul-
tural development has assigned
representatives to specific regions
in South Dakota.
“In working with Secretary
Lentsch’s vision to streamline
SDDA’s efforts and increase effi-
ciencies, we are excited to be taking
this new approach to best serve
South Dakota’s agriculture com-
munity,” said Paul Kostboth, direc-
tor of agricultural development.
In the past, agricultural develop-
ment specialists have worked
throughout the state. Agricultural
development’s new representatives
will now focus on specific regions of
the state, serving as a resource for
all local agriculture related efforts.
“This regional focus will give the
division of agricultural develop-
ment a better way to be a consis-
tent local resource,” said Kostboth.
Representatives will be reaching
out to the counties, towns, town-
ships, economic development
groups and producers in their re-
gions over the coming weeks and
“Agriculture is the only industry
that is consistently investing in
rural South Dakota,” said Kost-
both. “We want to work closely
with local leaders, supporting their
efforts to pursue those investment
opportunities that are so vital to
the ongoing success of their com-

Congratulations to Michael and
Allison Moses on the birth of a son,
Camden Michael Moses, born July
9, 2013. Michael is the son of Mike
and Shar Moses. Camden was born
on his great-grandpa Clark Morri-
son’s 85 birthday.
Friday, July 5, at Somerset
Court, we had Wii bowling and in
the afternoon several played whist
and five crowns. Addie’s minister,
Pastor Free, stopped by to visit.
My daughter, Delores Denke,
Pavillion, Wyo., wrote that they
have way too many blackbirds. She
even shot a couple and gave them
to the cats. Delores mentioned that
her grandson, Dylan Mair, is get-
ting married in August. He lives in
Texas and works partly in
Louisiana. Carla, his fianceé, lives
in Plano, Texas, where they plan to
Delores said that their hay crop
is good and of good quality and the
weather has been favorable for get-
ting it dry. Their son, Richard, and
wife Angela are getting their new
house finished.
An email from my granddaugh-
ter, Tiffany Engelbrecht, (M.R. and
Barbara’s daughter) is forwarded
from M.R. He said that they have
received their green cards, so are
now legal aliens in Mongolia for
one year. They have received their
camping supplies. They have found
a restaurant with WiFi and
chicken, a welcome relief from mut-
ton. Cotton is in the air there. I did-
n’t know they had cottonwood trees
in Mongolia!
Saturday, July 6, it was a pretty
day for walking outdoors or sitting
in the shade. Then about 4:00 p.m.
it rained a little.
Helen Larson is a new resident
here at Somerset Court and her old
hometown was De Smet.
Thursday’s Rapid City Journal
had quite a few fishing tips: Orman
Dam for walleye, Belle Fourche
River, north of New Underwood,
catfish on stink bait and shrimp,
Spearfish Creek and Castle Creek,
on tricos in morning and caddis in
the evening. Pactola Reservoir was
reported to be a good place for kids
to fish for blue gills and crappies.
Try fly fishing in Rapid Creek with
imitation terrestrials, Stockade
Lake was reported to have some
good sized northern taken on dare-
devils and Sylvan Lake, 10 to 14
inch rainbows were taken on buck-
shot spoonbills near the kayak
Ray Kraemer is expecting his
daughter in from Tennessee. Ken-
neth Monette had a granddaughter
visiting, of a size who may ride on
his walker.
New resident at Somerset Court,
Doris Bigler, arrived July 6.
Thank you to my daughter,
Carol, and husband Al Vogan for
the Smithsonian magazine which
arrived July 6. It has an article
about Higg’s Boson, in case you
have heard of it, or maybe gone
even so far as wondered about it.
And an amusing story about Jackie
Mitchell, nine, (a girl) who actually
played baseball with Babe Ruth
and Lou Gehrig.
Happy birthday to Somerset
Court resident, Marcella Craft,
July 7.
Sunday, July 7 at Somerset
Court we had church with Terry
Pulse and Steve. Jack Humke
played the piano and we sang sev-
eral patriotic songs. A prayer was
offered for the 19 firefighters who
died on Tuesday. Terry hoped that
we read the Bible and prayed
We can only hope and pray. Most
of the time, we wonder why things
happen and we have a hard time
trying to figure out why we have
tragedy after tragedy. There are
lots of things that we think are
good going on too. Is there some
sort of balance?
I am filled with wonder at the
beauty of the sky, for example, or
for that matter, the glorious vari-
ety in a rock pile.
For myself, I see that I could be
a better friend to people around
me. Not a thing I like to do.
Somerset Court resident, Eileen
Tenold, had company over the
weekend, her friend, David Placek,
from Lemmon.
Sam Young from California vis-
ited his mother, Mildred Young,
Sunday, July 7, at Somerset Court.
The Rapid City Journal on July
7, 2013, had an article about the
South Dakota School of Mines and
Technology and its part in a new
research center. Steve Smith,
Ph.D., director of SDSM&T
nanoscience and nanoengineering
program will lead the SDSM&T
part of the collaboration of
SDSM&T, South Dakota State
University and the University of
South Dakota.
Shawn Hofstutler took her twin
sons, Jamie and Jeremy, age 11, to
play in a baseball tournament, July
I had visitors July 8. My son,
Wayne, and daughter-in-law,
Gwynn Hansen, returned July 7
from California where they had vis-
ited their son, Mike, and family.
They also stayed with the four-
year-old twins, Owen and Ella,
while and Mike and Christine va-
cationed in Hawaii. Thanks for
your visit. It is nice you’re back.
July 8, I received three hand
written letters. One was from Mary
Jo Van Dell, an artist from Stillwa-
ter, Minn. I had met her in Wall
Drug last year. She had bought a
red hat and a tablet of writing
paper that looked like it was an ac-
count book with yellowed pages.
JoAnn enclosed a print of one of
her paintings from her South
Dakota trip. The painting is of a
two-laned highway with snow all
over the hills on both sides. Thank
you, Mary Jo. I will try to get a
color print of her painting to put in
our Somerset Court scrapbook by
the fireplace.
Another letter was from Rev.
Paul Lupkes, Rapid City, who
served as our pastor here at Som-
erset Court on the fifth Sunday in
June. He enclosed a booklet of pa-
triotic writings. I plan to put it in
our file with Hit and Miss. Paul
and Gladys go to Echo Ridge As-
sisted Living on two Sundays a
month and Sunday to the Victo-
rian. Thank you. The third letter
was from my niece, Alma (Hulett)
Schilling, Redfield. She wrote a
light-hearted letter. I am glad to re-
port, and enclosed a generous num-
ber of bright colored muscle car
stamps and Johnny Cash stamps.
Thank you, Alma.
Alma remembers that during
World War II, people were re-
minded to write on both sides of the
paper to save paper, and to make
open face sandwiches to save
bread. My mother, Alma’s grand-
mother, learned to knit at the Red
Cross. Alma learned to knit a little
too. Grandma Palmer made her a
victory dress out of scraps of mate-
rial with a bias tape V on the front.
My friend and grade school class-
mate, Jean Burns, passed away
July 7, 2013. We were near country
neighbors (two miles, cutting
across). I knew her when she was a
tot in a sunbonnet. Jean was a good
friend in school and in our 4-H
club. (Jean got blisters walking
over to Hulett’s for a meeting.) And
we were also neighbors when we
had children. We owed her money
when Homer died. I hope we paid
it promptly! Over the years, I re-
member her kindness to my son,
Hans P. Hansen. She always had
us over for tea and cookies when we
came to Philip. Other facets of her
personality may be found in her
obituary in the Rapid City Journal
of July 9, 2013. I plan to post it in
the Somerset Court scrapbook by
the fireplace.
July 9, at Somerset Court, we
had goofy golf. Thank you, Susan
and Sandi.
After lunch, I went to visit Som-
erset Court resident, Berniece
Christensen. She came from Cava-
lier, N.D. She had been a home eco-
nomics teacher. She has a great
interest in crocheting. She has
doilies everywhere, a huge ivory-
colored tablecloth crocheted with
number 10 thread. She said that
she always uses DMC, the most fa-
mous brand, produced in France. It
is about six feet across, with three
rows of pineapple and other de-
signs. She has colored yarn
afghans, most delightful. I took
photos of Berniece with her cro-
cheted items and her scrapbook
which is an elegant album of pho-
tos, a work of art. She belonged to
a scrapbooking club. Thank you for
inviting me, Berniece.
At 3:00 p.m., Sharon rolled up
my hair and I went outside to dry
it. It was warm and breezy and I
walked all the way around Somer-
set Court building. There is a side-
walk on all but the west side. The
west side is a nubby lawn and it is
slow going with a walker.
Over her vacation Sandi finished
putting together a beautiful quilt
top. She showed us an article from
a quilting magazine that said,
“How green was my stash.” Thank
you for showing us the quilt top,
Wednesday, July 10, 2013, we
had resident council at Somerset
Court. Shawn reviewed a few high-
lights planned for July at Somerset
Court like cooking with Sandi,
quilting, foot clinic, bingo with the
Boy’s Club, lunch out on the 17th,
Mt. Rushmore trip, New Horizons
band, root beer party, picnic in the
park, stair climbing, ice cream trip,
staff picnic and residents will have
box lunches brought to their apart-
ments or we can gather in the ac-
tivity garden with our lunches and
have coffee and visit. July 30 is the
birthday bash and the 31st Jim
Thompson, cowboy poet, will be
here. Sometime in August, Somer-
set Court plans to have a fish fry in
the courtyard. This is very popular.
Fire drill procedures was made
more clear. Stay in your apart-
ment, unless staff requests you to
go elsewhere.
Residents expressed thanks to
the management for the fine picnic
lunch we had July 4. We had 108 at
lunch, as there were quite a few
visitors who made up for residents
who were gone.
Thanks were expressed for all
the staff does for the comfort,
safety and enjoyment of residents.
July 10, 2013, Somerset Court
residents were entertained by a
youth group of 24 singers, accom-
panied by some adults from Grand
Prairie, Texas. They harmoniously
sang several favorite old hymns
with the accompaniment of a gui-
tar. Their voices poured out. They
wore jeans and matching purple
shirts that said, “We Represent.”
These singers are from the sixth
grade through high school. We en-
joyed their singing and they were
friendly and stopped to shake our
hands and visit. Our activity direc-
tors served drinks and ooey, gooey
coconut, chocolate macaroons!
These youngsters had played
soccer on the field just north of
Somerset Court and planned to
play a little more July 11. They
were also to sing at Piedmont
where the church will feed them.
They were to also visit Mt. Rush-
more. They tour Texas one year
and the next year they travel to a
different state. We thank them for
coming to Somerset Court.
My son, Wayne, and his wife,
Gwynn, came for lunch Thursday
and brought some of those little
perch all cooked. I had one for
lunch. Thanks for your visit and for
the best fish!
July 11, Mike Kilmer came to
visit his mother, Maxine, at Somer-
set Court.
M.R. Hansen emailed from Mon-
golia. It is the national holiday of
Naadam, July 10, 11 and 12, which
features archery, horse racing and
wrestling. The horseback racers
are children and it may become a
law they have to wear helmets. The
races are 20, 30, and 40 kilometers.
Archery is for men and women.
Wrestling is for men only, wearing
traditional costume. (Maybe noth-
ing at all?) There is much drinking
of airag, arkhi, and shimin arkhi,
which I believe are made of horse
milk. And there is beer, wine and
whiskey. Thank you for your email,
Friday, July 12, we made peach
cupcakes at cooking with Sandi.
They were really good and were
topped with lots of whipped cream.
Bits of enlightening conversation
included the fact that you can still
get pickled pigs’ feet at Christmas
in Mobridge. And at a town in
Pennsylvania, that Anne Brink
was acquainted with, (Cambridge
Springs) had been a big town with
a Carnation milk plant, and now
has dwindled to sort of a one horse
town. Anne Brink reported that
there are a good many Hutterites
and Mennonites in that area.
These people go where there is
need and work for free. A group of
them were out at a farm repairing
a wind-damaged building and some
newsmen came out to get a story
and photos. The colony people left,
as they did not want their photos
Friday afternoon, we had music
with Skeeter. That is Skeeter
Boyer and his band. There is a
piano, accordion, saxophone and
another guitar man. We enjoyed
their music very much. We sang
along with some old familiar num-
bers. A good crowd attended.
July 11, 2013, Philip Pioneer Re-
view arrived at Somerset Court on
July 12. The front page news was
about Dr. Coen and Trudie Klooper
becoming U.S. citizens at the re-
cent naturalization ceremony at
Mt. Rushmore. They had been on
“green cards” for years from South

Dr. Thomas F. Malone, son of
the late John and Mary Malone,
Haakon County homesteaders near
Milesville, S.D., passed away at his
home in West Hartford, Conn., on
July 6, 2013. He was 96.
A 1936 graduate of Philip High
School, Tom was elected to the
Philip High School Hall of Fame in
1986 and to the South Dakota Hall
of Fame in 2003. He graduated
with High Honors from the South
Dakota School of Mines & Technol-
ogy in 1940 and was awarded an
honorary doctorate of engineering
from SDSM&T in 1962. He was the
first recipient of its prestigious Guy
March Medal in 1976. He earned a
doctorate from MIT in 1946 and
held a tenured academic appoint-
ment there.
In the business world, he was a
senior vice president and director
of research for the Travelers Insur-
ance Company in Hartford. Malone
had been president of the SDSM&T
Alumni organization, the American
Meteorological Society, the Ameri-
can Geophysical Union, and of the
30,000-member Sigma Xi, the Sci-
entific Research (honor) Society.
He had also been a vice president
of the International Council for Sci-
ence. He was editor of the 1300-
page Compendium of Meteorology
that in 1951 outlined new research
vistas in that field and led to cre-
ation of a National Academy of Sci-
ences’ committee, on which he had
a prominent role, to pursue these
opportunities. He then led the ef-
forts by United States universities
to implement the academy’s recom-
mendation, including the founding
of the National Center for Atmos-
pheric Research (NCAR). In 2000,
he was inducted into the Founder’s
Circle of NCAR in Boulder, Colo.,
in recognition of his contributions.
In international science, he set
forth a vision of a world society in
which all of the basic human needs
and an equitable share of life’s
amenities would be met by every
individual while maintaining a
sustainable environment. For his
initiatives in organizing interna-
tional cooperation, Malone was
elected to the National Academy of
Sciences in 1968 and served as the
academy’s foreign secretary from
1978 to 1982. He had also been
awarded honorary doctorates by
Bates College, Saint Joseph Col-
lege in West Hartford and in 2007
by Connecticut’s Wesleyan Univer-
sity for “your tireless efforts as a
steward of Mother Earth are man-
ifestations of your personal com-
mitment, as a man of science and a
man of deep faith, to making life on
the planet sustainable for all peo-
ple for all time.”
He leaves his wife, Rosalie
(Doran), formerly from Sturgis, of
70 years, six children, 17 grand-
children and six great-grandchil-

in Britton where she worked as a
school secretary. A year later, she

“God’s country,” Faith loved living
there and she considered it a bless-

with her mom. Faith loved caring
for children, so she decided to open
a day care in their home for a num-
ber of years. Ted and Faith contin-
ued to make their home in Philip,
until moving to Sioux Falls in July

tive member of the United Church
where she served on various com-
mittees. She was dedicated and
continued to show her love of work-
ing with children by teaching Sun-
day school and by volunteering
with the summer vacation Bible
programs. She was at her best, and
her happiest, helping others; she
loved every second that she was
able to spend with her family, her
mom or her grandchildren. She
was a faithful servant of God and
enjoyed reading her daily Bible.
Faith was preceded in death by
her husband of 51 years, Ted on
September 2, 2011.

Midland News
It is an overcast day this Mon-
day morning with much humidity.
Sunday was one of those days
when the temperatures were in the
low 70s and windows were open. I
do enjoy those kinds of days. Gar-
den produce is doing well and don’t
the flowers have a rich color to
them? The prettiest I have seen for
some time. I know I’ve mentioned
it before, but the trees are just so
full with their lush, green leaves.
With the clouds yesterday and
clouds earlier today one keeps hop-
ing those clouds will bring us some
rain, but so far they have not. You
see harvest equipment going down
the road, but crops aren’t ready to
be harvested in this area. A num-
ber of winter wheat crops didn’t
make it so other crops were
planted. It will be some time before
they are ready for harvest. Soon
those motorcycles will roar down
the highway headed for Sturgis.
It’s really quite something to see.
Don’t have a whole lot of news this
week. Folks I called said they
haven’t been going much, just
keeping busy with garden and yard
work and taking care of things on
the farm.
In asking Judy Daly about news
she reports they have been staying
pretty much to home getting things
done on the farm. She did go to
Philip Saturday picking up her
mom, Marie Anderson, and an-
other lady from Silverleaf Assisted
Living taking them to hear Deb
Burma speak. Judy also reported
our former trailer house has been
moved to the spot planned for it to
be and Steve, Julie, Carson and
Dane Daly spent the night there
Sunday. It was a cool evening so
they were able to have the windows
open. Judy said anytime Jerry and
I want to come out and see where
that trailer house has found a new
home we are welcome to do so. So,
we will have to make a trip west
and south to the Daly ranch some-
time in the near future. Carson and
Dane can give us the grand tour.
Saturday, I went with Karel
Reiman to Philip to hear Deb
Burma speak at the Philip Legion
Hall. Deb is the daughter of Dick
and Gene Hudson. Deb is a writer,
speaker, women’s ministry leader,
wife, mother, daughter, sister,
friend, and runner. She and her
family currently make there home
in Nebraska. Ladies from Western
New Hope churches served a deli-
cious luncheon of salads and bars.
Deb has written and published a
book, “Stepping Out to a Life on the
Edge.” I can see why Deb is asked
to speak at different women’s con-
ventions, she is a motivational
speaker and shared parts of her
book and I liked what she had writ-
ten on a part of her bookmark,
“Stepping out in faith because He
steps in with His grace.” It was an
enjoyable and inspirational after-
noon. I also liked how she fit mem-
ories into her talk of her grandma,
Sylvia Snook, who many of us re-
member as a woman of wit, humor,
knowledge and a love for life.
Thanks for sharing, Deb.
Those gathering at the Midland
City Park Wednesday having a
chance to visit with Derek and Ale-
sha Flom and kids of Moore, Okla.,
were David and Beth Flom, Marion
Nelson, Philip, Ed and Dixie Flom,
Lee and Nathan Gerlach and
Trent, Pierre, Nick Massmann,
Sioux Falls, (who is married to
Amanda Jensen who was unable to
come because she had to work)
Rose Nelson, Daniel and Haeyoung
Flom and David (Daniel’s son),
Belle Fourche, Janet (Flom)
Gourneau, Pierre, and Clint,
Brenda and Joshua Jensen.
Family has been making trips to
Philip to see Jerry Hunt, who is in
the Philip hospital and is not doing
well. Those coming from a distance
were Shari (Hunt) Estep, Austin,
Texas, who came Wednesday
evening and left this Monday
morning. Roger and Peg (Hunt)
Johnson, Pierre, came Sunday.
Lisa (Hunt) Hackerott and her son,
Stuart, came from Smith Center,
Kan. Families from Midland have
been to see Jerry a number of times
and have also been busy going
through things at the home of their
parents the late Lyle and Ida Hunt.
Anyone who has gone through this
knows it is not an easy time. Our
prayers are with Jerry and his fam-
Ernie and Laurel Nemec left
July 9 for Faribault, Minn., to at-
tend the third John and Tena Shee-
ley reunion. The first cousins who
attended were Teresa McLaughlin
and Tom Nemec (Farmington,
Minn.), Ernie Nemec, Sally Ehlers,
Judy Fosheim, and John Nemec
(Midland), Bob Sheeley (Colorado
City, Colo.), Bev Johnson (High-
lands Ranch, Colo.), Gary Sheeley
(Urbandale, Iowa), Mary Eudy
(Missoula, Mont.), Charlotte Hand
(Willmar, Minn.). This year’s re-
union was organized by LeRoy
McLaughlin (Teresa’s son of Farm-
ington, Minn.) and Adam Nemec
(Tom’s son of Elysian, Minn.). A
total of 100 members attended the
reunion from all over the U.S.A.
The reunion was held at Camp
Faribault in Faribault, Minn.,
where a large number of the family
camped and tented. However, Sat-
urday morning events became
extra exciting when 7.7” of rain fell.
The nearby creek went way out of
its banks and flooded over half the
campground. The tent area had
over five feet of water. The recre-
ation hall where Saturday’s re-
union events were supposed to be
held was flooded out, as well, and
the campground hosts wanted
them to cancel the day’s events.
But the family rallied together to
move picnic tables, trashcans, and
food over to a dry area near Ernie
and Randy’s campers to continue
the festivities.
Ernie made homemade ice
cream on both Friday and Satur-
day night, they played bingo, held
a “Newlywed” game, and enjoyed
lots of picture taking, viewing and
visiting. Family members said
goodbyes Sunday looking forward
to the next reunion that will be
planned and coordinated by Rick
and Sue Nemec (Ernie’s son of
Hazel Green, Wis.) in 2015.
Ernie also celebrated his 75th
birthday on July 11 while they
were gone. After a relaxing day at
the campground and exploring,
Randy and Holly took Ernie, Lau-
rel, Becky and Josiah (Sioux Falls)
out for supper at The Depot in
Faribault, Minn. Ernie enjoyed all
five of his kids being at the reunion
festivities, as well. Sounds like a
good time mixed in with a little ex-
citement over all the water from
the rains. Thanks Becky for send-
ing me the news item of the family
Some may remember Dr.
Charles E. Tesar formerly of Michi-
gan coming to Midland January of
1951 where he was the doctor in
the town of Midland for a time. His
wife, Becky, was a cousin to Faye
(Berry) Jones. Becky passed away
recently. Our condolences to the
Gene and Audrey Jones spent a
couple days in Rapid City last week
to visit daughters, Paula Jones and
Julie Jones-Whitcher, and family
and to get acquainted with their
new grandson. Congratulations to
Jeremiah and Julie on the birth of
Walt Edward Whitcher who was
born on Wednesday, July 10. This
was special as his Uncle Rich
Jones' birthday and Aunt Lisa and
Matt Foley's anniversary is also
that day.

ern Minnesota stopped briefly at
her aunt and uncle's home on their
way to tour in the Black Hills.
Christal is one of Leo and Betty
(Standiford) Nemec's daughters.
Leo and Betty live near Littlefork,
That’s about it for the news this
week – hope to have more next
week. It’s just a busy time of the
year on the farm. We got an email
from our daughter, Charlene,
today. They had a city tour of
Dublin and then the group had
some free time. Charlene walked
the city for six and one half hours
seeing the sights. The most inter-
esting thing was her visit of the
famine ship, Jeanie Johnston. It is
a replica of the original one, which
is somewhere at the bottom of the
ocean. She reports the history be-
hind the ship is very interesting.
The ship was actually built in
Canada and was hauling goods to
Europe and then coming back
empty. One of the items being
shipped overseas was a fertilizer. It
had come from Mexico, through the
United States and Canada and
made its way to Europe. Eventu-
ally it would find its way to the peo-
ple of Ireland. The people were
very poor and their main food
source was the potato. A fungus
came along with the fertilizer and
got into the potato crops. Other
food was unaffected, but due to the
fact the people were very poor they
could not afford to buy much of
anything else and due to their in-
ability to eat their potato crops,
they were literally starving to
death. The famine in Ireland lasted
for seven years. I won’t go into all
of it, but the ship, the Jeanie John-
ston, took people from Ireland to
Canada and United States.
A saying from my Amish calen-
dar seems a bit fitting for a farming
community. “You must give to get.
You must sow the seed before you
can reap the harvest.”
Have a good day and a good
week and continue to pray for rain
to make those crops grow.

SDRA rodeo results – Interior, Wall, Dupree, Lemmon
A new law making it illegal for
young drivers to use a cell phone
while driving took effect July 1.
The law, passed by the 2013 leg-
islature, prohibits anyone who
holds a learner’s permit or a re-
stricted minor’s permit from using
any handheld communication de-
vice while driving. Generally, such
permits are issued to persons be-
tween the ages of 14 and 18.
“Young people still gaining expe-
rience with driving really need to
avoid any distractions,’’ said Jenna
Howell, director of legal and regu-
latory services for Public Safety.
“Driving is a full-time responsibil-
ity for all of us. That is especially
true for our younger drivers who
are still trying to get comfortable
behind the wheel of a vehicle. The
law emphasizes the need to pay at-
tention to the road.’’
A learner or instruction permit
allows the holder to drive between
the hours of 6:00 a.m. and 10:00
p.m. if accompanied by a person
who has a valid driver license, is at
least 18 years old and has at least
one year of driving experience.
That person must occupy a seat be-
side the young driver.
A restricted minor’s permit al-
lows the holder to drive between
6:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m. with per-
mission of a parent or guardian.
The holder of a restricted minor’s
permit may drive between the
hours of 10:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. if
the parent or guardian is in a seat
next to the driver.
The legislature directed that the
new law be enforced as a secondary
offense, meaning a young driver
would have to be stopped for an-
other offense before a ticket could
be issued for driving while using a
handheld communications device.

This feature sponsored by The Pioneer Review

You never know what point of in-
terest you may find when looking
through family photo albums.
That’s exactly what happened
when looking through my Aunt Es-
ther Schanzenbach’s albums.
Jerry and I had gone to Ivan
Schanzenbach’s for a visit. Jerry
and Ivan were visiting and I was
looking through albums when I
happened to come across a news ar-
ticle with the heading “Teacher’s
Skeleton.” With a heading like that
it sparked my interest! The article
was cut from a June 1940 newspa-
per or magazine and was written
by Joe Koller, but, I have no idea
what newspaper or magazine it
was from. In reading about a coun-
try school, its teacher Mrs. Tivis
and its students, many of whom I
know and some I am related, too, I
was interested.
The school was the Little Eagle
School and the students were
Peter, Pauline, Thelma Jean and
Edith Fosheim; Mary Hand; Jun-
ior, Barbara and Thurman Rank;
Thelma Hilmoe; and Joan and Ivan
Schanzenbach. Those students
happened upon an interesting
piece of information about their
teacher Mrs. Tivis.
As with most country schools,
that school building was moved a
couple of times. Ivan wasn’t for
sure, but he thought it had been
near the Nesheim place up north of
Midland some distance. It was
later moved three-quarters of a
mile north of the John and Esther
Schanzenbach place and it was
there when this picture was taken.
Ivan said he was in the eighth
grade in that picture. Ivan remem-
bers seeing that schoolhouse being
moved near his folks’ place. He said
they had quite a time thinking of a
name for that school and came up
with Little Eagle School. The car in
that picture reminds him of a 1939
Chevy his dad, John Schanzen-
bach, owned at one time. The
school was later moved one-half
mile south of Pete and Viola Fos-
heim’s. That’s where it would have
been when my mom, Olga Meyers,
taught there and Phil and I at-
tended school there and the three
of us lived in the school cottage.
In the article Koller wrote,
“Hoofs and Horns is a classroom
fixture in the Little Eagle School,
located out of Midland on the South
Dakota prairies.” It goes on to say,
“Hoofs and Horns made its school
debut last September after a copy
of it was discovered in the teacher’s
desk. Mrs. Tivis, the teacher, won-
dered why no children answered
her one-o’clock bell. So she went to
investigate and discovered all
eleven of her charges in a huddle
back of the horse shed. One of the
boys was reading rodeo ads from
Hoofs and Horns aloud and the
ring around him was more atten-
tive than they had ever been inside
the little white school house.” “Gee,
Mrs. Tivis, this’s the real McCoy,”
was the greeting she got, “Are you
crazy about cowboys, too?”
Koller goes on to write, “Mrs.
Tivis felt herself flushing. The H &
H magazine was a key to a closet
she kept locked for fear that the rip
roaring skeleton of her other self
would offset the impression the
board members might have of her
qualifying academic rating.” “The
kids had the goods on me,” she af-
terwards said. “There was nothing
to do but tell the truth.” In the ar-
ticle it tells Mrs. Tivis was profes-
sionally Bonnie Tivis, trick rider,
dude wrangler and wild west show
girl. She returned to teaching when
her husband, Melvin Tivis, broke a
hip in a bronc riding contest in
The article goes on to say “with
such a buildup Mrs. Tivis became
the heroine of her pupils. The news
made the rounds of school patrons
and proved no threat to her job.
Her trick riding horse, the calico
pony she kept around, became the
most petted and currycombed
horse in South Dakota, for the kids
made him their mascot, while
Hoofs and Horns was adopted as
the leading authority on the three
R’s of Little Eagle School interest,
namely, riding, roping, and rodeo.”
It goes on to say the Secretary of
the Black Hills Roundup sent a pile
of back copies of Hoofs and Horns
to Bonnie Tivis, a noon hour of
reading followed during which time
a picture was taken of the group. In
the picture the teacher, Bonnie
Tivis, is the one standing next to
the car, and it’s a bit hard to tell,
but, in the front row, I'm thinking,
Joan is the one with her head
turned towards the gal in the cow-
girl hat, which I thought might be
Thelma. If I were to venture a
guess, the three smaller girls are
Edith, Pauline and Thelma Jean
and the fellow in the white hat be-
hind Joan makes me think its Ivan.
There's just something about the
way he's holding his head. Ivan
said he can't be sure who is who,
but, I found it interesting to take a
guess. If, anyone would know for
sure, I would be interested in
knowing if I was anywhere right.
The others I couldn't venture a
guess and obvisously some of the
students were missing that day, as
there are nine in the picture and
she told of having 11 students.
The pupils were very proud of
their teacher, Mrs. Tivis, and
boasted to other children of having
the only trick-riding teacher in the
State. Their favorite picture was an
action shot of Bonnie Tivis doing a
headstand on Duke, her pony.
In my folder with this article and
picture, I also had a copy of the
Marcus News by Vicky Waterland
dated November 7, 2012 - The
Faith Independent. For the life of
me, I can’t remember where I got
that, but, it contains some informa-
tion on Bonnie Tivis. In the article
Vicky was sharing stories of the
Marcus Hall. Though I have never
been to the Marcus Hall, I found it
interesting, as I enjoy those types
of stories of days gone by. In the ar-
ticle Vicky’s aunt, Rosalie, had
written about Peter Norbeck
speaking at the Marcus Hall when
he was running for re-election for
Senator in 1932. But, I’m getting
off on one of my side-trips, which I
have a tendency to do so, better get
back on track. She tells of “Bonnie
Tivis, our teacher, performed at
Wriggly Field in Chicago and
Madison Square Garden in New
York City in the summertime.”
And so, this teacher and trick-
rider, Bonnie Tivis, had an inter-
esting life. My hope is that those
who knew her, who had her for a
teacher, will enjoy a walk down
memory lane.
Teachers really did have
lives outside the classroom!
Greetings from sunny, breezy,
dry northeast Haakon County! The
temperature is really supposed to
climb today, and if this wind keeps
up it will probably feel like a blow
furnace. It will be great for drying
down hay and ripening wheat, but
we need some moisture for the
crops. But as is always the case, we
will take whatever we get and
make the most of it.
One crop that is ripening is the
chokecherry crop. I was out picking
early this morning, hoping to beat
the birds to the berries. Thank
goodness there was a nice breeze,
which helped keep the flies away.
Just one or two trees are really
ripening here – the rest are still
very green. Chokecherry is one of
our favorite jellies, so I try to keep
some on hand. I have fond memo-
ries of picking chokecherries at my
Aunt Louisa's house when I was
young, and it seems like we gener-
ally got a good case of chiggers
along with the chokecherries.
Hopefully that won't be the case
this year!
The garden is going great guns –
we are eating snap peas, zucchini,
potatoes, and beets this week, and
the green beans will be ready in a
couple of days. The cucumbers are
blooming and setting fruit, and the
dill is ready, so with a little luck I'll
soon be putting up the hot garlic
dill pickles that we love.
On to the news!
Lola Roseth was in Philip Satur-
day to attend the ladies' salad
luncheon. Former neighbor, Debbie
(Hudson) Burma, was the featured
speaker. There was a great crowd
for the event. Sunday, Duane and
Lola Roseth had a visit from Lola's
college friends, Frannie and Moe,
from Dayton, Wyo. They spent the
afternoon and evening together,
then Frannie and Moe went to
Philip and spent the night with
Linda and Larry Smith. Monday
morning, Lola went to Philip and
joined the group for breakfast and
more visiting before Frannie and
Moe headed on east.
Dick and Gene Hudson were in
Sioux Falls early last week where
Dick had surgery to remove his
parathyroid. They returned home
Tuesday. Their daughter, Debbie,
and grandson, Chris, arrived from
Columbus, Neb., Friday. Saturday,
the ladies headed to Philip to at-
tend the ladies' salad luncheon.
Debbie is a published author, and
she does quite a bit of speaking na-
tionwide – I think she was also in
Canada recently for a speaking en-
gagement. Monday, Dick's sister,
Norma Schenkel Lincoln, Neb., and
her daughter, Pam Stephens,
Kansas City, arrived at the Hudson
ranch to spend a few days.
Coreen Roseth said they had a
"girl's day out" last Friday. Coreen,
her daughter, Kristin, and grand-
daughters, Bobbie and Fayth, went
to Rapid City for the day, and it
sounds like they had a lot of fun.
Saturday, Coreen was in Philip for
the ladies' salad luncheon. Julian
and Coreen's son, Nick, was home
over the weekend. It sounds like
the activity at the Roseth ranch
consists mostly of haying and haul-
ing hay these days.
Arlyne Markwed was in Philip on
Saturday to attend the ladies' salad
luncheon. Sunday, Billy and Arlyne
attended church, and following
church, Chauncey Jorgensen, Misty
Gunderson, and T.J. Gabriel and
family stopped at Billy and Arlyne's
for visiting.
Nels and Dorothy Paulson were
in Pierre Wednesday for repairs
and supplies. Nels is still putting
up hay. Saturday, Dorothy car-
pooled with a group of local ladies
to attend the luncheon in Philip.
Sunday, Dorothy attended church.
Haying has been the main activ-
ity at the Bruce ranch, so Polly has
been busy helping take meals to
the field. Katie Bruce left last
Thursday to take a puppy to her
mother in Logan, Iowa, and she
was scheduled to return Monday.
Bill and Polly's son, David, was at
the ranch Monday through Friday
helping with haying, and Tony Fis-
cher came to visit Friday and Sat-
urday. Tony's wife is gone to
Norway, visiting family. Bill and
Polly spent the weekend in the
Black Hills. They attended a Red-
den family reunion in Custer Sat-
urday. The Reddens lived south of
the Bruce's years ago – Bill Bruce
and Fuzz Redden attended school
together and joined the military to-
gether. Polly said they were joking
about having an eighth grade re-
union Saturday, and both members
of the class were there! Polly
taught some of the Redden children

Donald D. “Don” Thorson, age
53, of Bartlesville, Okla,, formerly
of Philip, S.D., died Saturday, July
13, 2013, while on vacation in Med-
ford, Ore.
Donald D. Thorson was born
April 29, 1960, in Quinn. He grew
up on a ranch northwest of Philip.
He attended Alfalfa Valley Rural

1978. He attended South Dakota
State University and earned an as-
sociate’s degree in December 1980.
He went to work for Scotchman In-
dustries and was there until 1989
when he went to Canyon, Texas,
and attended West Texas A&M
University. He graduated with a
bachelor’s degree in computer engi-
neering in 1991.
Don went to work for Conoco in
Ponca City, Okla. When Phillips 66
and Conoco merged, he spent two
years traveling the world merging
the computer systems of both com-
panies. Once his job was complete,
he was transferred to Bartlesville
where he has since resided.
Even though he moved several
different times throughout his ca-
reer, his heart always stayed in
Philip. He regularly visited Philip,
at least twice a year, catching up
with his family and friends. He es-
pecially enjoyed hiking, hunting,
fishing, golfing, camping, and play-
ing cards. One of his highlights was
traveling to Norway and finding
where his great-grandparents were

The Philip American Legion
baseball team won the Belle
Fourche tournament held Friday
and Saturday, July 12-13.
They first defeated the Piedmont
team 10-9 on Friday. Early Satur-
day, they got by the Gillette, Wyo.,
team with a 3-2 victory. The final
game was a 12-10 win over Belle
The tournament came after
Philip defeated the Pierre White
Sox 15-8 on Monday, July 8.
Though high scoring at its end,
that game’s early score was only 3-
1 going into the seventh inning.
“It (the Belle Fourche tourna-
ment) was very big for the kids,”
said Foss. “They’ve worked hard for
three years, and it paid off. Win-
ning the tournament was a very big
thing for our program, with the
quality of the teams.”
Foss believes that two years ago
the team had only two wins during
the season. Last year, he believes,
they had only three wins. Now,
“We’ve done okay. We’ve actually
won five in a row,” said Foss.
“We are definitely playing our
best games lately. Which is what
you want to be doing as you go into
regions,” said Foss.
The Philip team will be going
into the Region 7B Tournament in
Winner on July 18-20 with a 8-12
record so far this season. The state
class B tournament will be in Web-
ster, July 26-30.
The Philip American Legion baseball team is on a winning streak. It consists of players from a number of surrounding com-
munities. Back row, from left: coach Kory Foss, Philip, Avery Johnson, Philip, Zac Stone, Kadoka, Bubba Young, White River,

The end of season player/family get-together for the Philip T-ball team was held Wednesday, July 10, at the Haakon County
Young Women’s Kiddie Park. Water games, water fights and snacks ended the season well. The team had practices and
played in four games, two against Midland and two against Kadoka. Generally, each game was two full innings, with the
full roster being up to bat once per inning. Players are from five to seven years old. “It was fun to watch the kids learn the
basics of hitting, fielding and base running,” stated assistant coach Jennifer Henrie. Shown, back row from left, are Taryn
Ravellette, Drew Terkildsen, Bradi Heltzel, evan Henrie, Baylor Burns, Carson Fugate and assistant coach Heidi Burns. Front:

As the first vice president for the
South Dakota Family, Career,
Community Leaders of America.
Gavin Brucklacher was part of the
executive council attending the Na-
tional FCCLA Leadership Confer-
ence in Nashville, Tenn., July 7-11.
Over 7,000 attendees, with 130
of those delegates being from South
Dakota, joined together at the
Opryland Hotel, the largest resort
in the United States without a
casino. Of the South Dakota dele-
gates to the convention, Elliot
Johnson, Brookings, presided as
the national FCCLA president. The
year’s conference theme was “Dis-
cover Your Voice.”
Out of the many scheduled
speakers, the keynote speaker was
Doc Hendley. In 2004, Hendley
launched a fundraising initiative
for clean water projects. Originally
planning to donate through tradi-
tional channels, he found himself
traveling to one of the world's most
dangerous spots – Darfur, Sudan.
There, he witnessed a government
sponsored genocide where the
weapon wasn't bullets, but water.
With limited funds, Hendley real-
ized that he couldn't build new
wells costing $10,000 per well, but
he could hire local workers to re-
store damaged wells for only $50
Today, Hendley and his non-
profit aid organization "Wine to
Wells" focus on providing clean
water to continue to help stricken
people repair and maintain water
containment systems in places like
Darfur, Cambodia, Uganda and
Haiti. Hendley was named one of
the top 10 CNN heroes for 2009, as
an individual who has made a dif-
ference by discovering his voice.
The many conference activities
included a Red4Red five kilometer
run. Brucklacher, in his first ever
5K run, placed fourth out of 327
student and adult runners.
Other activities included tours.
Some were the Country Music Hall
of Fame, historic Ryman Theater,
RCA Studio B, The Hermitage
(President Andrew Jackson's
home), Carnton Plantation and
Nashville Shores water park. They
also attended the Grand Ole Opry,
where they saw a performance by
Carrie Underwood. Some conven-
tion members also did line dancing
at the Wildhorse Saloon.
Also attending the convention
was Philip FCCLA advisor Brigitte
Brucklacher. She was a Students
Taking Action with Recognition
event evaluator. “I have been to
over 20 national meetings, and this
was one of the best! Superior
speakers, workshops and competi-
tive events,” said B. Brucklacher.

Ground beef was the surprize ingredient that 4-H members
had to use in the fourth annual Youth in Action “Iron Chef”
contest, Thursday July 11, in Philip High School’s home eco-
nomics room. Contestants were given 90 minutes in which
to prepare and serve their recipe to a panel of judges. They
were judged on cooking skills, food safety and handling
skills, kitchen clean up, and the nutritional knowledge for
their dish. They must know how many servings their recipe
makes, the amount of calories per serving, how the different
ingredients fit into the food pyramid, as well as information
on the fats and sugars per serving. The beginner, junior and senior level competitors earned ribbons, but the top winner
will not be announced until the 4-H recognition night in November. Shown, clockwise from upper left: Josie Rush (taco
bake) and elle Moon (stromboli), Tagg Weller (cheeseburger bundles), Shaina Solon (meat loaf) and Savannah Solon (beef
quesadillas), and judge Kathy Peterson overseeing Gage Weller (chili) and Dustin enders (farmhouse biscuits). Not show

The South Dakota FFA has been
a major part of the spirit of South
Dakota’s youth and agriculture for
more than 80 years. The Star Part-
ner Program joins the efforts of
South Dakota businesses and or-
ganizations with FFA's mission of
developing premier leadership,
personal growth and career success
for youth involved in agriculture
“The need to build partnerships
in support of local and state agri-
cultural education programs con-
tinues to grow,” said Gerri Ann
Eide, executive director of the
South Dakota FFA Foundation.
"These partners provide quality
leadership training for our FFA
members, ensuring we have
trained employees for the future of
the production and business sides
of South Dakota agriculture. Our
star partners make a huge differ-
ence for members through high
school, collegiate, advisor and
alumni events.”
The Star Partner program wel-
comes a growing list of supporters
that see the value of South Dakota
FFA and agricultural education at
both the local and state level. Dis-
tinguished Star partners - North-

prepare future employees for agri-
cultural careers and develop skills
to provide leadership for their local
communities, while at the same
time businesses and organizations
receive year-long recognition for
their partnership.” said Eide.

property and liability insurance. At the last
meeting, the board approved switching
insurance to ASBSD as their quote was

was incorrect due to misstated values

Proceedings of
Haakon County
JuIy 2, 2013

sioners met at 9:07 AM in a Regular
Meeting on Tuesday, July 2, 2013. A quo-
rum was established with Chairman
Stephen Clements, Vice Chairman Tom
Radway, Commissioners Nicholas Konst
and Gary Snook in attendance. Commis-
sioner Edward Briggs joined the meeting
at 10:30 AM. Auditor Pat Freeman re-
ported to the meeting at 10:05 AM.
Deputy Auditor Carla Smith, Highway Ad-
ministrative Secretary Val Williams, High-
way Superintendent Kenny Neville,
State's Attorney Gay Tollefson, Fred
Hoag, Michael and Janice Schofield, Blue
Cross Blue Shield Representative Glen
Parsons were also present.
The hours from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM had
been designated for budget issues.
BCBS Representative Glen Parsons
spoke to the commission about what to
expect from health insurance in 2014.
Our health insurance will increase. After
much discussion it was decided to
change the enrollment date to December
1, 2014, because of the uncertainty of the
new insurance laws. Doing it this way,
Glen thought our increase should be 6%
to 7%, plus fees charged. Auditor Free-
man was instructed to compute budget
with the 7% insurance figure.
Several other budgets were looked at and
budgeted amounts filled in, such as
Elections - $20,000
Court Witness & Fees - $10,000
Court Appointed Attorney - $10,000
Coroner - $2,500
County Fair - $1,000
Soil Conservation District - $7,200
The Commission also looked at how
much of the 2013 budgets had been used
up to the end of May. A review was made
of all the expenses and revenues thus far.
All was looking good for the middle of the
The commissioners adjourned at 12:00
noon for lunch.
The commissioners returned at 1:00 PM
and called the meeting to order. The June
4, 2013, Regular Meeting Minutes were
read. Auditor Freeman requested that the
entity payments in the May 7, 2013, Reg-
ular Meeting Minutes be removed from
the minutes as these were June entity
payments. The June 4, 2013, Regular
Minutes shows May and June entity pay-
ments. A motion was made by Commis-
sioner Briggs and seconded by
Commissioner Konst with all in agree-
ment to make this change. A motion was
made by Commissioner Snook and sec-
onded by Vice Chairman Radway to ap-
prove the June 4, 2013, Regular Meeting
Minutes. Motion carried.
At 1:15 PM, the hearing for the Highway
Supplement Budget was held. No one ap-
peared at the hearing. Commissioner
Snook made a motion to transfer from
201-0-374.00 Road & Bridge Surplus
Property $429,600 to 201-0-101.00 Road
& Bridge cash. Commissioner Briggs sec-
onded the motion and all were in agree-

three used motor graders. Commissioner
Briggs seconded the motion with all in
The Fred Hoag plat map was once again
presented to the commission with the sig-
natures of the Department of Transporta-
tion and the surveyor on the plat. Michael
and Janice Schofield explained their con-
cerns with the surveyed land not being
correct. Hoag explained that the map was
now exactly as it was originally with the
fourth revision. His concern was that he
had been trying to get the plat filed for the
last four months so the sale of the land
could be completed. State's Attorney
Tollefson presented SDCL 11-3-8 to the
commissioners. Ìn reviewing the plat for
the second time, it appeared that both
surveyor and Department of Transporta-
tion had signed off on the plat. They are
certifying that it is done correctly and if
there are any discrepancies, it would be
between the land owners. Vice Chairman
Radway made the motion to approve the
plat. Commissioner Snook seconded the
motion. Motion carried. The commission-
ers signed the plat for the last time.
A request was made by Doug West for
the Philip Rodeo Arena Calf Roping on
June 22-23, 2013, to be granted a two-
day liquor license. Since this was needed
before the next meeting date, commis-
sioners were called to get the approval.
Chairman Steve Clements, Vice Chair-
man Tom Radway and Commissioner
Gary Snook gave their phone approvals
on June 18, 2013.
T-34's Uniform Alcoholic Beverage Li-
cense Application was approved. Com-
missioner Briggs made the motion and
Commissioner Snook seconded the mo-
tion with all in approval. T-34 also re-
quested to be approved for serving
alcoholic beverages with Sunday meals
and paid $100 for that right. Commis-
sioner Snook made the motion to approve
the Sunday sale of beverages and Com-
missioner Konst seconded the motion
with all in agreement.
There was a request for permission to
travel to the Ultra Software Meetings for
the Auditor and Treasurer in Pierre, SD at
the Ramkota on August 7, 2013. A motion
was made by Commissioner Snook and
seconded by Commissioner Konst with all
in agreement to approve the travel.
Commissioner Konst made a motion to
transfer cash from the 101 General into
the 226 Emergency Management Cash in
the amount of $16,474. Commissioner
Briggs seconded the motion with all in
Custodian Nancy Neville showed the
commissioners the repairs that would be
needed on the generator. Ìt involved
some minor repairs. Commissioner Konst
thought that they could do the repairs.
Custodian Neville also brought up the two
trees that appeared to be dying quite rap-
idly around the court house. Ìt was rec-
ommended that the leaves be sent in to
verify what was causing them to die.
Neville stated she would take care of it.
CHN Heidi Burns turned in her first quar-
terly report for January, February and
March. Ìt has been difficult to get the
quarterly reports made. The commission-
ers will review her written report.
Veteran's Officer Terry Deuter's monthly
report was reviewed.
The following June 2013 fuel bids were

Highway Superintendent Kenny Neville
gave the monthly report to the commis-
sioners. Neville showed the commission-
ers the Road Agreement dated February
6, 1979, with Stanley County. This works
well for roads that cross county lines.
Agreements are made to "trade¨ the sim-
ilar miles of plowing snow, etc. Ìnstead of
going to the county line and quitting,
Stanley goes to the end of a
Stanley/Haakon road and Haakon will do
the end of a Haakon/Stanley road. Super-
intendent Neville will report back to the
commission at the next meeting.
The 1997 Freightliner truck was having
mechanical problems. Superintendent
Neville stated it could take $8,000 to re-
pair it. Other equipment issues are the
two old mowers belonging to the county.
The Sale Barn Auction was not done this
year. The plan was to put the two mowers
at the auction. Now Neville stated that
Kennedy Ìmplement would give the
county $1,000 each for the mowers and
could put that toward a new double
mower, which would cost approximately
$12,500. He wants to get started on the
mowing of the county road ditches.
The commissioners were informed that
Superintendent Neville would be having
knee replacement surgery on July 12,
2013. How long it will take to recover from
the surgery is not known for sure. He will
keep the commissioners informed.
A motion was made by Commissioner
Snook to approve the Merchants Capital
Financial Agreement for the three pur-
chased motor graders. Payments were
put over five years (2014 to 2018) in the
amount of $51,323.68 per year. The mo-
tion was seconded by Commissioner
Briggs with all in agreement.

Haying season well underway in county
The much awaited rains came this year and have provided a good hay crop for most of Haakon County. Producers have been busy putting up the crop as seen here
along Highway 34 east of Billsburg. Photo by Nancy Haigh
The annual jamboree and honors
banquet for the South Dakota
State Bowling Association is going
to be July 26 and 27, 2013, in
Pierre. How many bowlers from
Philip will be going? Sounds like a
great time with lots of things going
on Friday and Saturday.
Boy, you find out a lot just read-
ing the other correspondents news.
A speedy recovery to Rich Smith,
who spent some time in the hospi-
tal just ahead of the family re-
union. Sounds like the Smith clan
had a great reunion. Congratula-
tions to Coen and Trudy Klopper
on their naturalization. Quite an
article in the Pioneer Review.
Our friends in Howard had a
devastating fire that destroyed
their home. Though I can’t be
there personally, they sent a list of
garage items they needed a price
on so I’m using this electronic tech-
nology to google the prices. Lucky
for me it wasn’t something in the
kitchen, I wouldn’t even have
known anything about that stuff.
Well they say "time flies when
you are having fun!" Don and Vi
Moody must be having fun as they
start their new week back at the
ranch. Hay yields this year make
ranching and haying fun especially
when there is something going
through the baler!
George, Sandee, Jessica and
Kelsey Gittings were all in Rapid
Monday. Sandee kept an appoint-
ment. Jessica and Kelsey came
back to Philip to be on hand for
work while George and Sandee
spent the night at the Charles and
Diane Gittings home so that
George could see the eye doctor
Tuesday morning. He will have eye
surgery Thursday of this week. We
want to keep George and Sandee in
our prayers and thoughts as they
work through health issues. Jody
Gittings, Kelly Blair, Seth Long-
brake, and Jessica Gittings all
helped get hay put up for George
Gittings. Joe Gittings also helped.
What a great bunch!
Monday there was a promise of
rain with it being overcast and cool.
Merry Willard, Belvidere, visited
at our place on shirt business. Bill
went to Terry Buchert’s and fixed
an auger in the morning and by af-
ternoon we were on the way to
Rapid City to enjoy the World of
Outlaws car races. a rain shower
early in the afternoon delayed the
start and finally tickets were re-
funded or could be used for the
Gillette, Wyo., show the next day.
Terry had gifted us two tickets, but
we let him get rained on getting the
refund. We didn’t get rain here that
Tony Harty made a trip early
Monday to keep L.D. Hair company
at the surgery center where Shirley
had hip surgery. When all was good
he met his cousin, Janet Lewis, for
supper before returning home.
Al Zentner and Donna White,
Des Moines, Iowa, arrived at the
George Gittings home Tuesday and
left Thursday morning.
Tuesday, I made a trip with the
community van to Philip for folks
to keep appointments. Bill was
busy mowing the yard. Dave
Strain, Rapid City, stopped and
bought up all the copies I had of
“Frontier Woman.” I visited with
Clark Morrison while in Philip and
wished him a happy 85th birthday.
He had some cards that made you
chuckle. We think Mike Vetter
stopped by for some water line
easement Bill signed, but that is a
Tuesday afternoon, Cathy
Fiedler met granddaughter Caitlin
Klumb in Whitewood to get Han-
nah and her friend, Ayden, so they
could spend the night because
everyone in the Klumb family had
to work Wednesday. After supper,
Sonja Nonnast came to get Cathy
to attend the viewing for one of the
nursing home residents who had
passed away.
Wednesday found Tony Harty on
his mowing machine, catching up
with some of the yards he does.
Sympathy is extended to the
families of Jean Burns, Faith
Kunz, Floyd “Speed” Bendickson
and Don Thorson. Jean was such a
joy to visit with and if she had a
question she’d call to get things
straight. We had many a pleasant
visit over the years.
Wednesday, Merry Willard
stopped by to check out more on
her project. Bill Bowman with the
Golden West telephone company
came by for telephone easements
(that’s how I discovered Bill had
signed something the day before.)
Tony Harty stopped by for a visit in
the afternoon.
Wednesday, Cathy Fiedler went
to Whitewood, met up with Gene
and Sonja Nonnast to attend the
funeral for the resident and the
luncheon after the service. Later,
Cathy took Hannah and Ayden to
Whitewood where Lynette Klumb
picked them up.
Thursday morning, Merry
Willard was in Kadoka and
stopped by. I was busy with the
community van taking folks to
Rapid City in the afternoon.
Kelsey Gittings left early Friday
morning for Lovell, Wyo., to visit
over the weekend with Bryce Dick-
erson, arriving back Sunday night.
Tony Harty did some mowing
Thursday until it got too hot. L.D.
and Shirley Hair were back at their
home in Kadoka while Shirley re-
cuperated from her surgery. Tony
just checked in by phone since both
were tired out.
Don and Vi Moody wrapped up
their ranch business after repairs
were made to the windrower and
they got moved to locations down
and across Brady Creek to the east
pastures. A .35" rain made things
keep green for their extended
weekend getaway.
Don and Vi Moody and the furry
family left by way of Kadoka Fri-
day morning to keep their first ap-
pointment to be in Rapid by 1:30.
They made a brief stop at Marsha
and Bill Sumpter’s with a little sur-
prise and filled their car with gas
and filled their coffee cups at the
gas station and there was much
talk locally about a mountain lion
being spotted in downtown
Kadoka. Nothing was heard of any-
more though on that account.
(Note, Bill was happy it escaped,
but there was some speculation
that it wasn’t really a mountain
lion, nobody snapped a picture.)
Friday, Tony Harty gave L.D.
Hair a ride to Philip to pick up
medication while a friend from
Wall stayed with Shirley. Tony en-
joyed a visit with them all.
Phyllis Word visited at our place
in the morning Friday, then Bill
and I were on the road to Harris-
burg. We got there just about sup-
per time. Amanda fixed a great
supper and Bill and Adam tackled
trying to fix the convertible top on
the Chrysler. They made a trip to
Flandreau to take a pickup and
park it at Adam’s dad’s place then
settled in for the night. It was a
warm day.
After a warm week in Sturgis,
relief came Saturday afternoon
when a thunderstorm rolled
through and dropping a half inch of
rain. It stayed cloudy and some
more rain in the evening brought
the total to .70” for the day. Sunday
morning, they got up to 66˚ and
cloudy and fog most of the day with
a couple of rain showers. Opened
windows and enjoyed the cool day.
Saturday, Don and Vi Moody
ventured into downtown Deadwood
for lunch and Vi took in the wild
west shootout on lower Main
Street. She witnessed the shootout
and got into a nearby casino to
keep from getting drenched in a
fast moving heavy rain storm. They
cleared the western play act
quickly before they all were
drenched. Don was up the street a
ways away, so they used cell
phones to keep in touch and meet
for lunch. The sun came out and it
was a beautiful afternoon.
Saturday early, Tony Harty fin-
ished up the mowing for the week
and picked up mail, then stopped
by the Hairs and visited. Shirley
was up and a little better. Tony
went out for breakfast, then
shaded up the rest of the day since
it was hot and muggy.
Richard and Susan Fellows, ten-
ants of Don and Vi Moody, left sur-
prises again in their yard at Rapid
with more solar bobbles in the yard
after they had mowed the lawn and
Rice Krispie bars in the woven bas-
ket (secret) place. The telephone in
the house at Rapid went on the
blink over the weekend, but the
laptop PC and cell phones were
still a great communication. No
long distance phone service.
Meanwhile, Bill and grandson-
in-law, Adam Claflin, were busy
keeping the junk yard happy by
getting first one thing then an-
other. Amanda and I visited at the
Eric Seager home where Chaciel
and Eli were, Eric was at Guards.
Susan Hoveland came and took Eli
home with her so Chaciel could get
some studying done. In the later af-
ternoon, Chaciel and Eli arrived at
Amanda and Adam’s for supper
and Eric joined us after he was
done with Guards for the night.
The good news was the convertible
top now went up on command and
down on command. Bill said he did-
n’t realize how easy it was to get
himself under the dash of a car
once all the seats were missing!
What a group of grandkids we
have, Amanda whipped up a birth-
day cake for me and it was a total
surprise, so we had a wonderful
supper together, then Bill was
pretty wore out and home looked
like the best option, so off we went
into the night, returning home. A
shower and bed were welcome re-
Sunday, Don and Vi Moody took
in the car show and spent a cool,
mostly cloudy, comfortable after-
noon hanging out at popcorn and
lemonade stands around and about
and the Main Street Square in
Rapid City, live band playing 50s
and 60s tunes and awesome an-
tique and classic restored and re-
built cars parked for about three
blocks including side streets. They
even saw Elvis Presley driving a
Cadillac and he was moving his
head looking all around! He was on
KOTA news that night. Mike Mod-
rick was announcing trophy win-
ners at the Main Street Square.
The sprinklers there felt good as it
was getting pretty hot at around
3:00 p.m. at the closing. They had
a nice tour and visits with quite a
few Philip folks. Rich and Donna
Perez had their '57 Chevy Belair
two-door Nomad on display also,
but Vi didn't see them. She even
went into a nearby bar to see if she
could find them but "no dice." Sure
was a busy place though. Don was
wondering where Vi went.
Everything still looks nice and
green in Jackson County at the
Moody ranch. Vi wrote that it looks
greener down this way, than near-
ing Rapid City. The valley always
looks green though and they had
round bales all put up at their
Rapid Valley place, recently fin-
ished on both sides of the creek.
Everything was all mowed and
trimmed, so they enjoyed the stay
hassle free! Sometimes they find
little odd jobs of course like every-
one else and home base too!
Sunday was a day of rest for both
Bill and me. Phyllis Word stopped
for a visit in the afternoon.
Sunday, Tony Harty attended
church then had dinner out. The
rest of the day he rested. As it
cooled off in the afternoon, he vis-
ited L.D. and Shirley Hair, then in
the evening he stopped at our place
and caught up reading papers and
visited and gave me his news.

As friends and family will tell
you, I’m horrible at painting
rooms – I get more on myself it
seems, than on the walls. I’ve
given up on trying to be a neat
painter, it just isn’t going to hap-
I also hate taking the time to
tape off areas. Guess I’m also an
impatient painter. I have found
though, that a good quality angle
brush will save you from having to
tape off most areas. I have also dis-
covered a long metal paint guide
that can be set up against what
you don’t want painted. Since most
walls, especially plaster walls,
aren’t flat some paint will get be-
hind the blade and need to be
wiped off with each move. It sure
makes painting trim go a lot
faster. And since I’ve decided to
not even try to be neat, my pant
leg works great for swiping it
A 5-in-1 painters’ tool is a great
tool to have in your painting arse-
nal. The tool scrapes paint, opens
cans, can spread joint compound
and helps clean the paint out of
your roller. It’s amazing how much
paint is in a roller. I scrape the
paint back into the can, although
some frown on this as you might
put impurities, i.e. dirt, lint, etc.,
into the paint.
Then there’s the great debate of
whether to clean the roller and
keep it for the next round. You
save money by not having to pur-
chase another roller, but I’ve al-
ways wondered if you save that
much, because you can use a lot of
water getting all the paint out. It
seems, for me, the deciding factor
is how tired I am and if I want to
mess with it.
I found the following painting
tips on the Internet.
By dampening your paint brush
with water (remove as water as
you can) less paint will move up to-
wards the ferrule (the metal part
where the bristles are attached).
A 3/8 inch or 1/2 inch nap on the
roller will work for most walls.
Priming is recommended, but if
you don’t and you plan to paint
over gloss, sand the gloss paint
first so that the new paint sticks
Cut in the corners, around trim
and between the ceiling and walls
before rolling. Any brush marks
will be covered up.
The first time you use a new
roller tap all around it with tape
or a lint brush to remove loose
Paint comes in many types of
Flat Finish – Little to no sheen,
typically do not clean well, but
some brands have additives for
Matte Finish – Some sheen or
gloss. Some brands use flat and
matte interchangeably.
Eggshell Finish – Low sheen,
but more cleanable than flat
Satin Finish - More sheen than
eggshell and also more durable for
easy cleaning.
Semi-gloss - The sheen can be
more readily seen. Easy cleaning,
very durable.
Gloss - A lot of sheen and im-
percections in painted surface are
more readily seen.
High-gloss - Can take on an al-
most plastic appearance. Is the
most durable of all finishes. Im-
perfections in painted surface are
easily seen.

This, That &
by Nancy Haigh
by Representative
Kristi Noem
After months of debate and hun-
dreds of amendments, the United
States House passed a farm bill
this week. This legislation, which I
supported, is anticipated to move to
a conference committee so differ-
ences between the Senate and
House versions can be worked out.
This process hasn’t been easy,
but getting a five year farm bill
passed and signed into law has
been a top priority for me since I
came to Congress. Although pas-
sage of this legislation is a key step,
we still have a long way to go to get
a farm bill to the president’s desk
and signed into law.
Separating out the nutrition title
from the Farm Bill is not ideal and
certainly wasn’t the path I would
have chosen, but at the end of the
day, we need to get a farm bill into
conference with the Senate. I was
proud of the bipartisan bill we
passed out of the Agriculture Com-
mittee in April. It was unfortunate
that many members were unable to
put people before politics and pass
that bill when we had the opportu-
nity last month.
However, the legislation we
passed this week includes impor-
tant provisions for the agriculture
community in South Dakota. The
House has now reauthorized live-
stock disaster assistance programs,
included important sodsaver pro-
tections which encourage good land
stewardship, passed measures to
help combat the pine beetle in the
Black Hills, and established a per-
manent office of tribal relations
within the United States Depart-
ment of Agriculture.
This bill repeals direct payments
to farmers and stops payments to
those who no longer farm. In fact,
traditional farm policy funding was
cut by 36 percent, the biggest re-
duction in Farm Bill history. Addi-
tionally, the bill makes important
and necessary reforms to the crop
insurance program, which is vital
to the South Dakota agriculture
community. These reforms make
sure that farmers have skin in the
game while providing a safety net.
A rigorous debate on the nutri-
tion title, which includes the food
stamp program, lies ahead for the
House. Traditionally, the nutrition
title accounts for approximately 80
percent of the Farm Bill funding.
Democrats believe the Agriculture
Committee proposal’s reforms went
too far, while some Republicans be-
lieved it didn’t go far enough. We
need to ensure that the nutrition
title is done in a way that helps
those most in need and is account-
able to taxpayers.
It’s time to move forward. It’s
time to ensure we have sound pol-
icy that provides a safety net and
certainty for our agriculture com-
munity. Decades ago, we decided it
was important for us to grow our
own food in this country and pas-
sage of this bill brings us closer to
policy to ensure that continues to
I look forward to receiving your
feedback as the farm bill process
continues. I hope you’ll give my of-
fice a call to share your thoughts,
comments and concerns.

There was a large crowd at the

eon. Deb, daughter of Dick and

Out In My Savior's Strength."

Sunday, Tonya Berry and kids

where Jade and Misty competed.
The local 4-H club helped run the
concession stand for the rodeo Sun-
day with all the members there –

eral weeks.

We appreciated the couple of cool
days this past week. A year ago on
the 15th of July it was 108˚ here
and really dry! We need rain badly
(continued from page 4)
at the Kuhl School, so it was nice to
visit with them. They returned to
their son David's house near Rapid
City late Saturday afternoon, and
David took Polly rock hunting,
since he knows his mother loves
rocks. Sunday, Bill and Polly had
lunch with Bill's sister, Betty, and
her husband, Dennis Casey. Later
in the afternoon, Bill and Polly
traveled to Hot Springs and met up
with their granddaughter, Lexie
Lutter Milles, daughter of Linda
(Bruce) Lutter. Lexie is in charge of
music for some camps, and one of
her groups was entertaining Sun-
day evening. After supper with
Lexie, Bill and Polly returned to
David's home. They returned to the
ranch Monday morning. Their
grandson, Jessie Lutter, is back at
the ranch after attending some
summer camps. He will be here
until school starts. Also, David is
back at the ranch this week, help-
ing with haying.
Clark and Carmen recently kept
an appointment at Rochester,
Minn. Last week, Carmen took
their granddaughter, Morgan Nel-
son, to a volleyball camp in Broo-
ings. The ladies were there Monday
through Wednesday. They stayed
with their friends, the Martins, so
there was good opportunity for
quality visiting. Saturday, Carmen
attended the ladies' salad luncheon
in Philip.
Joyce Jones was home most of
the week, but she also attended the
event in Philip Saturday.
Ray and Nancy Neuhauser had a
family filled week. Funeral services
for Nancy's niece, Lorna Williams,
were held on Saturday. Prior to the
services, two of Nancy's nephews
and their families were luncheon
guests at Ray and Nancy's home.
Nancy's daughter, Cindy, spent the
week with Ray and Nancy, return-
ing to her home in Texas Saturday
following the funeral services. Sat-
urday evening, many family mem-
bers spent the evening visiting.
Nancy and her children have also
been busy making plans for their
annual ranch rodeo, which will be
held September 21.
Wednesday, Frank and Shirley
Halligan went to Mission to the fu-
neral of Frank's uncle, Daryl Halli-
gan, who passed away while they
were in Texas. On the way home,
Frank and Shirley stopped at the
1880 Town and had a sandwich.
Saturday, Shirley was among those
going to Philip to hear Debbie
Burma speak. Shirley said they
had a delicious salad luncheon and
a nice crowd. Shirley also said,
"Deb is a wonderful speaker, due in
part I'm sure to all that practice in
4-H years ago." Sunday, they went
in to church and took Frank's dad
to lunch out by Spring Creek.
Later, they did some chores at the
house in Ft. Pierre and got ac-
quainted with new neighbors, Dan
and Michelle Martin. Dan is the
new superintendent at Stanley
County High School and his wife,
Michelle, is originally from the
Lantry/Dupree area. The Martins
have two children. Baling is on the
schedule this week at the Halligan
ranch, and it sounds like it is going
to be dry enough.
Mary Neuhauser was at the
ranch for the weekend, and Kevin
has been busy finishing up the sec-
ond round of alfalfa and preparing
for the upcoming wheat harvest.
His brother, Myron, will be coming
to help with harvest. He will fly
into Minneapolis Saturday and
drive to the ranch.
Last Tuesday, Lee and Mary
Briggs were in town for dental and
medical appointments. While they
were grocery shopping, they ran
into neighbors, Dick and Gene
Hudson, and had a nice visit. Mary
Briggs worked from home Friday,
and Cattibrie was ready for Mary
to go try her luck at some senior
pictures after the workday ended.
They took several photos – Mary is
a great photographer! Sunday,
their daughter, Keva, surprised
them with a visit. Keva and Mary
went rock hunting until Rea, Kin-
sey and Cattibrie Riggle got there.
Then they went to take more senior
pictures at various locations. Ac-
cording to Mary, it all went well
until Kinsey almost stepped on a
rattlesnake down at the pink house
on their property. The grass is so
tall this year, making it very diffi-
cult to see the snakes. In their
quest for good backdrops for the
photos, they ended up at Grandpa
Walt Briggs' place to use an old ve-
hicle as a prop – those old rusted
out vehicles always add something
extra to the pictures. It went well
and they got lots of good photos,
but Mary said she doubts if they
are done with the process. Other-
wise, like the rest of us, the
Briggs's are anticipating harvest …
patiently, Mary said.
We have been busy haying at our
place also. We are also waiting for
the oats to dry down so we can har-
vest it. Last Friday, Randy and I,
along with our nephew, Colton
Nickelson, and friend, Bob Spears,
headed east. We went to Salem to
the home of our daughter and her
husband, Jen and Ross Tschetter.
From there, we went to Rock Val-
ley, Iowa, to a tractor pull. It is
amazing how much noise those ma-
chines can make. We spent the
night with Jen and Ross, and Sat-
urday morning the guys surveyed
the corn and soybean fields and
spent some time visiting Ross's
parents, Jerome and Susie Tschet-
ter. We returned home Sunday,
driving through some heavy rain in
the Plankinton and Chamberlain
areas. The rain had come so hard
in some areas that the wheat was
laying down and the corn was at a
45 degree angle to the ground. We,
too, are anticipating harvest, al-
though I'm not sure how patient we
I have been failing miserably at
giving away kittens. Please give me
a call if you need one (or more)!
This week, I am grateful for air
conditioning. The heat and humid-
ity can get so oppressive – how did
our ancestors handle it? I'm sure
they had windows open, but that
must have lets hoards of flies into
the house. The more I think about
it, the more sure I am that my fore-
fathers were made of much tougher
stuff than I am!
As you hurry through your day,
please take time to be safe. And
please pray for rain – we need it in
our part of the world. Now go make
it a great week!
