Haakon School District new year Scotchman upgrades nitrogen tank
by Del Bartels The Monday, July 16, meeting of the Haakon School District 27-1 Board of Education began with Mark Radway and Jake Fitzgerald reciting their oathes of office as they began their terms. Scott Brech will continue as the board president, and Anita Peterson is the school board’s vice president. Superintendent Keven Morehart is still the authority responsible for closing school for emergencies, inclement weather and any other reasons. Britni Ross was again appointed as the school district’s business manager; and the bond has been set according to law. Board meetings will be the first Monday after the second Tuesday of each month, in room A-1 of the Philip High School. The meeting times will be at 7:00 p.m., except for November through March when the time will be at 6:00 p.m. School board members will again receive $50 plus mileage for each official meeting. First National Bank in Philip is the official depository for school district funds and accounts. The Pioneer Review is the official newspaper for publications of official school board meetings, advertisements and other information. Rodney Freeman, Huron, is again the school district’s attorney. School breakfasts, new this year, will be $1.40 for students and $1.80 for adults. Student reduced breakfast costs will be 30 cents. Lunch prices for students in seventh through 12th grades will remain $2.00. Adults prices are still $2.75. For students in kindergarten through sixth grade, the cost of lunches has been raised from $1.75 to $1.90. All student reduced lunch prices are still 40 cents. Extra milk is still 25 cents. Morehart said that the price increases are required by program regulators to make sure the free and reduced program is not subsidizing the regular food program. Activity admission prices for students and seniors citizens 65years-old or older are still $2.00, with season passes being $20. Activity admission for adults is $3.00, with season passes being $35.00. Rose Bennett has turned in her resignation as head cook, after nine years of being with the school district. Michelle Butler will fill that position, and Johanna Baye will be by Del Bartels Quadrupling their nitrogen storage, Scotchman Industries’ new tank was installed last Wednesday. First, Scotchman Industries, Inc., in Philip, used nitrogen for its heat treat process for tempering metal. Then, far more nitrogen was required to operate a new $1.2 million laser that can cut one inch thick steel and cut thinner material at 300 inches per minute. Though the laser can handle most of Scotchman’s in-house needs, it required the old 1,500-gallon nitrogen tank to be refilled approximately every 11 days. On Wednesday, July 11, the old tank was replaced with a 6,000 gallon, 22,000 pound empty tank. This is a “big Stanley thermos bottle,” said W.J. (Dub) Vanneman, representative for A&B Welding Supply out of Rapid City, which supplied and installed the tank. The new unit was erected on top of a three foot thick concrete pad that is reinforced with “a massive amount, a semi load” of one inch thick rebar, said Jerry Kroetch, president of Scotchman Industries. Nitrogen, which is collected by industrial air liquidification, is stored under pressure at 273 degrees below zero. One semi-truck load of liquid nitrogen is approximately 4,000 gallons, which will not fill the new tank. The old tank was sold to A&B Welding Supply and will be used by a potato chip manufacturer in Clark. The new tank is being leased from A&B Welding Supply by Scotchman. A blue-caged machine, called a trifecta, helps maintain a consistant flow pressure for Scotchman’s use of the nitrogen. Vanneman said that there are only maybe a half a dozen of these trifecta machines currently being used in the state of South Dakota.

Number 47 Volume 106 July 19, 2012
The oath of office was taken by, from left, Mark Radway and Jake Fitzgerald. the assistant cook. The board approved the publication of the list of employee contract salaries, according to South Dakota Codified Law. Contracts have been officially approved for Morehart as the head high school football coach, and Travis DeJong as the junior high football coach. Since no qualified replacement could be found, Kim Bouman has agreed to continue on as head volleyball coach. The geothermal well that supplies heating for the Philip school buildings requires treatment with barium chloride. The board accepted this year’s bid for the compound from Black Hills Chemical, at $21,736 for 220 50 pound bags. A bid for propane at $1.39 per gallon from Cenex Midwest Cooperative was also accepted. The cost of milk to students will remain the same this year, with the accepted bid from Land O’ Lakes for white milk at 22.56 cents per half pint and for chocolate milk at 24.51 cents per half pint. Discussion will continue, with public input being solicited, about possibly holding senior graduation on a Saturday rather than a Sunday. In 2001, graduation was on a Saturday. It has been communicated that some graduation audience members would like to be able to travel back home before late Sunday evening. The board approved a 2012-2013 Children’s Internet Protection Act policy. For a school to receive funding for Internet access, the school must have an Internet safety policy. Measures must block or filter Internet access to pictures that are obscene, child pornography or harmful to minors. The annual budget hearings began with this meeting, and must be finalized before October. The 2012-2013 proposed budget total is $3,102,282. The 2012-2013 proposed means of finance is the same as the expenditures. Within the next month, there are five lane change requests expected from teachers. In his superintendent’s report, Morehart said that the parking lot blacktop and striping project should be completed in the next few days. Deep Creek School should also be ready in a few weeks to reopen for the 2012-2013 school year. Summer school will finish up next Thursday. The air conditioning units will be installed and ready for use before classes start. Mike Baer has begun his duties as the new secondary principal. “I’m excited to be back,” said Baer. “We were thinking about our kids. Philip is a great place to raise kids.” The next meeting for the board of education will be at 7:00 p.m. in room A-1 of the Philip High School, Monday, August 20.

Hot Summer Nights
Drought – this year is among top 10 worst in 100 years
Continued dry and warm conditions have continued to worsen conditions in South Dakota, nearly all the Corn Belt, as well as much of the nation said Dennis Todey, SDSU Extension state climatologist in his July 13 drought summery. “The most recent conditions on the United States Drought Monitor have shown worsening conditions in South Dakota over the last few weeks,” said Todey. Based on data, he said the state is currently rated in at least an abnormally dry status. Much of the state is rated moderate drought to severe drought because of dry conditions this year and last fall. No improvement in these conditions is appearing in the near term. “Conditions since the spring have been somewhat dry over most of the state. Most problems have worsened recently with a lack of precipitation over the last 30 to 60 days,” said Todey. He added that the 30-day total precipitation and percent of average precipitation from average show that most of the state has received less than 50 percent of average precipitation over this time. Several weather stations in the southeast part of the state were driest or top 10 driest during the month of June based on over 100 years of records. “A major driver of this drought has been temperatures, which have been running consistently warm since the spring and winter,” Todey said. “Increased temperatures have increased plant water use and exhausted limited soil moisture reserves. The last 30 days has continued this trend being four to eight degrees above average across the state.” Most of the state has set records for overall temperatures since March and since the beginning of the calendar year. Impacts of this drought are felt across the state in many different ways explained Todey. “Fires in the west have captured most media attention with fires near Sheridan Lake, around Edgemont and several other locations around the Black Hills,” he said. “Several wet years have helped create large amounts of fuel available during the recent dry conditions. Fire dangers remain very high.” He explained that hay, pasture and rangeland have been reported as producing much lower amounts generally this year. “Reports have been spotty as to quality. But overall amounts seem to have been reContinued on page
Drought meetings July 23 at regional Extension centers
Drought meetings will be held July 23 at each of the regional South Dakota State University Extension centers. As far as officials know, the format will be somewhat informal, with plans to connect via interactive audio-video conferencing with SDSU campus, the West River Ag Center and each of the eight regional Extension centers to address questions with the best expertise available through SDSU Extension. “We fully expect agricultural producers will have questions about salvaging drought-stressed corn for livestock feed as hay or silage, nitrate poisoning, testing water for salt levels, and other drought related issues and will try to address those as best we can,” stated Bob Fanning, plant pathology field specialist at the SDSU Winner Regional Center. For starting times and other information, email robert.fanning@ sdstate.edu, call 842-1267 or 7304072, or visit iGrow: http:// igrow.org. The regional centers in South Dakota are Aberdeen – 13 2nd Avenue SE, Lemmon – 408 8th Street W., Mitchell – 821 North Capital Street, Pierre – 412 West Missouri, Rapid City – 1530 Samco Road, Sioux Falls – 2001 E. 8th Street, Watertown – 1910 West Kemp Avenue, and Winner – 325 S. Monroe Street.
Philip’s “Hot Summer Nights” are every Thursday in July in the Haakon County Young Women’s Kiddie Park. July 19 will include walking tacos. This year’s final evening, July 26, will include a community barbecue cook-off. Shown top left is Pete Metz being decorated by Hannah Kiewel. Marcus Martinez sang for the audience in the park.

Preparing Deep Creek School for reopening
Simulation in Motion
Haakon School District maintenance personnel have been busy this summer preparing the Deep Creek School for reopening this fall. The school has seen some minor remodeling, grounds maintenance and a fresh paint job inside and out. The playground equipment was refurbished, a shower and water heater have been installed and a kitchenette will soon be installed. A deck was removed and will be replaced with steps. The floors will also be refinished this summer. From left are Casey Seager, summer employee Reed Johnson, and head maintenance Mike Gebes. Not pictured is summer employee Seth Haigh. The school was last used in 2005.

duced. The most recent crop report had pasture and range conditions at 33 percent poor or very poor with alfalfa reported at 56 percent poor to very poor," he said. Corn is already or very close to tasseling. Todey said widespread reports of corn being stressed have shown up over the last two to three weeks. “With the warm temperatures and limited moisture, much of the corn crop is experiencing some stress. Total losses will not become apparent for some time,” Todey said. He added that water shut-off orders for non-domestic water use have gone out on Battle Creek near Hermosa. Other streams are being watched closely.
The NOAA Climate Prediction Center’s eight to 14-day outlooks continue the recent trend of likely warmer and drier conditions. The current maps show a strong likelihood for warmer than average conditions to continue throughout the balance of July. Similarly precipitation is more likely to be below average through the month. The combination leads to continued and likely some worsening of drought conditions not only in South Dakota, but across much of the middle part of the country. South Dakota State University Extension will provide weekly drought briefings throughout the 2012 growing season.

The United States Drought Monitor now indicates abnormally dry to severe drought spanning across South Dakota. The entire state is depicted in D0 to D3 status on the map, which can be viewed at http://droughtmonitor.unl.edu. “On a Corn Belt basis, this is the most widespread drought since 1988,” said Dennis Todey, South Dakota state climatologist. Precipitation over the last week was less than an inch across all of the state, with the exception of the northwest and some other localized areas. “The recent seven to 10 days of heat and limited rainfall have accelerated drought conditions statewide,” said Laura Edwards, Extension climate field specialist. Above average temperatures increase water demand by crops and vegetation, in an already waterlimited environment. Seventy-seven percent of South Dakota is now considered to be in moderate to severe drought, according to the U.S. Drought Monitor. "This reflects a 30 percent increase in the area experiencing a significant level of drought impacts,” said Edwards. Almost 20 percent of the state is in severe drought. This is the most state coverage at this level of drought since July 2007. “Nearly all stations in the state have set records for average temperatures since March 1 and since the beginning of the calendar year adding to the drying out of locations,” said Todey. In combination with the extended period of above average temperatures during the growing season, precipitation has been well below average for the last 60 days. Some climate observing locations in the southern counties have experienced dry periods that rank in the top 10 driest combined May and June on record. The State Climate Office's observation network has confirmed the dry and hot climate of late, as temperatures
soared over 100 across the south. “A report of 112 degrees in Hoover in June was the highest temperature statewide since July 2007,” said Edwards. Most climate locations have measured around 50 percent of average rainfall over the last two months. Hay production is suffering, reported to be as low as one-third to one-half of average in some drier areas. Row crops, particularly in the southeast, are continuing to show signs of water stress. In corn growing areas, tasseling is occurring. This period is a critical time for rainfall, which is necessary to maintain effective pollination and plant health. In the western watersheds, water restrictions are being implemented to conserve water for domestic users. Low levels in stock ponds have led to concerns of water quality for cattle.

Ice cream – 4-H style
Hot flashes ... by Del Bartels
Hot! Dry! Miserable! That is what the weather has been. We could use a break. Dry days are needed for harvesting wheat, but the market doesn’t call much for cooked wheat. Livestock are drinking up what remains of stock dams and creeks. Windbreaks are not as important as shade. Fix the tractor’s power take-off or fix its air conditioning? Any hotter and a fire won’t be needed for branding irons. It’s getting to the point that if you don’t cry about it, you might as well laugh about it. Yeah, laugh like you’re in an asylum. Science fiction fantasies are becoming common daydreams for me. Wouldn’t it be neat to have the ray gun invented by Mr. Freeze in the Batman comics? You could hold an ice skating party on what is left of your stock dam. Your barn could be an ice block factory. A 100-foot tall wall of ice could line the western border of the county so the breeze would cool everything down ... for maybe a day or two. Then the ray gun’s power would give out, and I would no longer be the “cool” guy I thought I was; my weapon would be useless. If I was Frosty the Snowman, I would be comfortable – for about 15 minutes, then become a wet spot under some cow. I wish I was Iceman from the X-men comics! All the hot ladies would hug me ... so they could cool down. My hair would be a mess from all the cowlicks as livestock thought I was a popsicle. The time machine in the book by H. G. Wells could transport me to next winter, but the shock of going from 115 degrees to -20 degrees would probably kill me. I could leave this heat for a secret mission, like James Bond, but with my luck it would be in Cairo, Egypt, or Death Valley, Calif., or as a sleeper agent in Philip, S.D. Which would be worse: riding a camel across the Sahara with no water, or riding a 1996 Chevy pickup across western South Dakota with no air conditioner? I’ll take the camel. The worst curse upon someone is now, “May your air conditioner break down!” The newly blacktopped school parking lot is melting tires. Vehicles painted black must now carry environment hazard warnings. Sunbathers, fanatics as they are, are being safety-oriented by using egg timers. Sheared sheep are standing in line for sun block. SFP-15 won’t cut it; try opaque. Watch where you step; the breakfast special is cooking in a black frying pan set in the sun on the sidewalk. Minute steaks take only 35 seconds. Communications have slowed; cell phone towers and land line wires are drooping in the heat. Three television weather forecasters have quit; that or get tarred and feathered. Instead of mowing lawns, young businessmen are making blocked mud pies, setting them in the sun, and are threatening the brick market. The most booked vacation get-away is Antarctica. The heat is oppressive. We can’t wait for winter, but we can’t speed it along. Then, in January during a blizzard, we’ll be thinking of the “good ol’ days of summer.” No, I don’t really think so. Milesville Rangers 4-H Cub held a dairy promotion, June 23 at the Milesville Hall. The evening was attended by members of the community. Club members had games for the children, while the adults played pitch. Members furnished homemade ice cream and pie. The South Dakota Dairy Council asks organizations to promote dairy products during June. This is one of their community services throughout the year. The Milesville Rangers have been participating in this promotion for the past 20 years. Courtesy photo

Extension News
Drought Resources One of the challenges that every farmer and rancher (and Extension worker) dreads seems to be setting in on much of South Dakota, as well as much of the country – drought. About every day recently, calls come in to the Winner Regional Extension Center, and I’m sure others, regarding questions about salvaging corn fields for livestock feed and other drought-related issues. Fortunately, most producers seem to be aware of potential nitrate poisoning, but need clarification on a number of details. When drought strikes, there is a long list of potential concerns that producers have questions about, and may not have dealt with for a while. SDSU Extension has geared up for drought response several times in the past, and is actively working on updating existing resources and making them available. One avenue of making resources available is the new teaching platform for SDSU Extension, iGrow, which can be found at: http:// igrow.org/. Beginning on July 16, a new “community” will be created under the Livestock and Agronomy tabs, labeled “Drought”. You can look there for a number of resources which will be helpful. Regular news releases have and will continue to appear in South Dakota newspapers, targeting specific topics. For detailed information on specific topics, SDSU Extension relies heavily on publications and factsheets, virtually all of which are published online, as well as available in print form. To obtain printed copies, visit your closest Regional Extension Center, or they may be available at most County Extension Offices. If you have Internet access, you can also obtain them via http://igrow.org/, and/or by visiting the “SDSU Extension Resources” website: www. sdstate.edu/sdces/store/index.cfm. Type one or more keywords in the “Search Publications” box to narrow your search, and try a variety of keywords if you’re not finding what you want. Sometimes it is more helpful to talk to a live person in getting help and the answer to your questions. The re-organization of SDSU Extension has now located the expertise of SDSU in eight regional centers. One of these centers may be located in your community, and if so, give them a visit. The hiring process to staff the centers with experts in a variety of specialties
by Bob Fanning Field Specialist, Winner Regional Extension Center is progressing, but not complete. If the person you need to consult isn’t at the center you visit, or isn’t in, someone who can help is only a phone call away. The eight Regional Extension Centers and the telephone numbers to reach them are: Aberdeen Regional Center 626-2870; Lemmon Regional Center - 374-4177; Mitchell Regional Center - 995-7378; Pierre Regional Center - 773-8120, Rapid City Regional Center - 394-1722; Sioux Falls Regional Center - 782-3290; Watertown Regional Center - 8825140; Winner Regional Center 842-1267. Although the bulk of what SDSU Extension provides is information, we also offer some services, such as testing livestock water for Total Dissolved Solids (TDS), and Quick Nitrate Tests for Forages. Each Regional Extension Center and some County Extension Offices have meters and test kits to perform these services. Calendar 8/16: Winter Wheat Meeting, 6:30 pm CT, Auditorium, Draper
First case of West Nile Virus case reported in South Dakota
A Beadle County blood donor is South Dakota’s first human West Nile Virus detection of the season, the state health department reported, Friday, July 13. The individual was in the 20-29 age group. “This individual was not ill but was detected through the routine screening of blood donations that takes place to make sure the blood supply is safe,” said Dr. Lon Kightlinger, state epidemiologist for the department. “It’s a clear indication that mosquito-to-human WNV transmission is taking place and people need to protect themselves.” To prevent mosquito bites and reduce the risk of WNV, the department recommends the following personal precautions: •Use mosquito repellents (DEET, picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus, or IR3535) and limit exposure by covering up. •Limit time outdoors from dusk to midnight when culex mosquitoes are most active. •Get rid of standing water that gives mosquitoes a place to breed. •Support local mosquito control efforts. Personal precautions are especially important for those at high risk for WNV – people over 50, pregnant women, transplant patients, individuals with diabetes or high blood pressure, and those with a history of alcohol abuse. People with a severe or unusual headache should see their physician. Seven mosquito pools have also tested positive for WNV so far this season in South Dakota, two in Brookings County and five in Brown County. All of the positive pools were culex tarsalis, the primary carrier of the virus in South Dakota. View WNV prevention information at http://westnile.sd.gov and at the SDSU Cooperative Extension Service website http://www.sdstate .edu/sdces/issues/wnv.cfm.

Centennial and 125 year farm and ranch awards
Farm families that have enjoyed 100 or 125 years of life on the farm or ranch have the opportunity to be honored during the South Dakota State Fair on Thursday, August 30. Century Farms have been recognized at the State Fair since 1984 by the South Dakota Department of Agriculture and the South Dakota Farm Bureau. Farms and ranches that had been family-owned for 125 years or more were recognized in a quasquicentennial event last year. That tradition will continue this year. Recognition of the quasquicentennial farms will immediately follow the Century Farms program. “Farm and ranch families are the backbone of South Dakota agriculture,” said SDFB President Scott Vander Wal. “Families that have survived 125 years of drought, floods, winter storms, insects and difficult economic times should be recognized for their great achievements.” A farm or ranch is eligible for Century Farm recognition if at least 80 acres of original land has been continuously owned by the same family for 100 years or longer. A Quasquicentennial Farm must meet the same acreage requirements and be owned by the same family for 125 years or longer. “It takes many generations of commitment to keep a farm or ranch in the family for 100 or 125 years,” said South Dakota Secretary of Agriculture Walt Bones. “These farm and ranch families represent the steadfast dedication that South Dakota has to agriculture. Agriculture is here to stay.” Application forms can be obtained online for both the Century Farm and the Quasquicentennial Farm recognition at www.sdfbf.org, http://sdda.sd.gov/Secretary/Century-Farms or by calling 605-3538052. All forms must be completed and notarized before being returned by August 13 to the South Dakota Farm Bureau, P.O. Box 1426, Huron, SD, 57350. The South Dakota State Fair will run August 30 through September 3 at the state fairgrounds in Huron. For more information, log onto www.sdstatefair.com.

But only one would count. Charlie won the postage stamp game and Agnes won twice. Betty Downen won the blackout game. For snack and chat, Jacob from our kitchen staff made and decorated white cupcakes with red, white and blue frosting and tiny U.S. flags. Thanks, Jacob. Irene A., Irene C., Ina Oerlline and Vivian played a little whist. The Philip Pioneer Review for July 5 arrived July 5 and it had a timely article about rabies. In 2012 in Haakon County, there have been two cows and a skunk tested as rabid. Report any suspected animals at once. If necessary, shoot the animal dead, but not in the head. Rabies is spread by the bite or scratch from a rabid animal, or saliva from one. There are treatments. If you have pets, it is wise to have them vaccinated for rabies. Another item in the July 5 Pioneer Review was about the Stroppel Inn and Spa in Midland that is under new management. It is planned to update and improve the facility, continuing the basic hot water baths which have given so much comfort over the years. Midland is blessed with a soft mineral water well. The water comes out at 119˚. Friday at Somerset Court after morning exercises, we played a little whist. Jim Holmes, Irene Cox,

in a park pool and had a paddle boat ride around the Lincoln Memorial and other places. It happened to be very hot back there at the time. Melissa emailed me since they went back to Gillette. She said that their garden is really good with plenty of vegetables to freeze. That is pleasant news. At Somerset Court there has been card playing, both before and after lunch. And Mass was said both at 9:00 a.m.and at 4:00 p.m. I have been enjoying a new 2010 book “South Dakota Curiosities,” by Bernie Hunhoff, who is editor of the South Dakota Magazine. His article about the quartzite border between South Dakota and North Dakota brings out some of the highlights of how the stone markers were placed. A surveyor, Charles Bates, was the designer. There were 720 of these pink and purple quartzite posts placed every half mile east to west across South Dakota. It was hard work setting the posts. Many have been taken away, some covered by dust storms or moved on account of road construction. But it is still possible to see some of the stones in place. The one in the photo with Bernie Hunhoff in his book is the one on the very west end of the line. It is at the corner of South Dakota, North Dakota and Montana near Ludlow. For more information, there is the book “The Quartzite Border,” by Dr. Gordon Iseminger, now in print. Happy birthday to my grandson, Todd Allen, July 8 and to my granddaughter, Casey Allen, July 10. Sunday, July 8, the usual residents mostly went to church and a few played cards or rummi-cube. Gwynn Hansen took me shopping at some stores where I had not been before. Then we went over to their place for supper. Wayne had caught some of those little perch which are my favorites. He fried them up really nice and brown and made corn bread. We had avocados and pork and beans and Rainier cherries. Thank you for the fun day out and for supper, Wayne and Gwynn. Gwynn made copies of some old photos for Betty Jean at the Pioneer Review office in Philip. They were photos of the Rausch family, our neighbors from way back when my brother and two

years old, so about the year 1932. Wednesday there is to be cookies on the patio. This is not the patio in the courtyard, but is really the seating area by the front driveway. Sometimes we have a tea out there. Tuesday, July 10, at Somerset Court, we had morning exercises. We were talking about limericks and Vi Walker recalled an old one: There was an old man from Rorem. He bought a pair of pants and wore ‘em. He stooped and he laughed and he felt quite a draft. And he knew right where he had tore ‘em. Another limerick comes to mind, one that my kids, Delores and Carol, made up long ago by the kitchen sink, while they did dishes. There once were two guys from LeMars. They smoked Wm. Penn Cigars. Their mouths didn’t fit ‘em, so they chewed ‘em and spit ‘em, and died of nicotine tars. July 10 at Somerset Court, we had bean bag toss out in the courtyard. It was just warm and pleasant. Sandy and Susan were in charge. We had ice water and big umbrellas. Fred was there to cheer us on. Those who played were Sandy, Susan, Jamie, Jeremy, Jim, Marcella, Eileen, Irene McKnight, Floy, Marilyn B. and Vivian. Marilyn won one game, Vivian the other. All players received generous Somerset Court bucks. Sandy called numbers and Susan helped with snacks and prizes for Tuesday afternoon bingo. Thank you. Winners were Fred, twice, Connie, Mary K., twice, Helen A., Inez, Irene Cox and Vivian. For snack and chat we had delicious deviled eggs. We had rummi-cube with Irene Cox, Floy, Agnes and Vivian. Then Addie sat in and Susan and Vivian played a couple games of quiddler. We have gotten used to this game and it is not so strange. You have a deck of letters and blends such as cr, pl, qu, or nk. You then make words. Letters have number values. Players may play cooperatively. Recently, Elsie Kephart, Somerset Court resident, was named a Paul Harris Fellow by the Rotary Foundation. Elsie goes every week day to the mall and helps people learn to read. She will read to people or help them improve their reading skills. Thank you, Elsie. We are proud of you. July 11, at Somerset Court, we had cookies on the patio. A good bunch turned out to enjoy the calm, warm morning in the shade. Shawn, Sandy and Susan served Hawaiian punch and two kinds of cookies and truffles. Sandy made the beautiful truffles. Thank you for the nice party. Enjoying the party who I saw were Inez, Jeannie, Marilyn B., Irene McKnight, Jim, Floy, Fred, Anne, Blanche, Myrna, Phyllis C., Warren, Joyce, Lucille, Charlie and Nellie C. There were probably others. July 11, at Somerset Court, Maggie Engler, from the Black Hills Raptor Society, brought three birds. One was a red-tailed hawk, sometimes called a chicken hawk

Susan and Vivian played, then a little later Jim left and Irene Arbach joined us. Sandy, Shawn and some residents made a trip to a grocery store. My son, David K. Hansen, Ft. Pierre, does trenching for people and recently he dug a long trench straight east and west. The charming thing about that was that once in the morning and once in the afternoon, the sun’s rays shone way to the bottom of the trench. I do thank him for that bit of joy. Pat Staley looked like she was writing poetry, so I asked her if she ever wrote poetry and she said that she did and that her favorite kind is the limerick. She used to use that style to teach. I think she said that she taught third graders. She would give them unfinished limericks and they could finish rhyming them. What a clever idea! The limerick is typically written in anapestic tetrameter. Two short syllables and a long. O young Lochinvar has come out of the west. Dr. Seuss uses this form in his book, “The Sneeches.” “Now the Star-Bellied Sneeches had bellies with stars, The Plain-Bellied Sneeches, had none upon Thars.” You can feel the natural rhythm. One of the most common limericks I can think of is: There was an old man from Nantucket, who kept all his cash in a bucket. His daughter, named Nan, ran away with a man, and as for the bucket, Nantucket. This little gal from Dakota, said, “I don’t care where I go-ta! Up or down, round and round, I don’t care one iota. We could have a limerick contest here at Somerset Court and we could print all the best limericks on the daily page by the fireplace. Saturday, July 7, it was not so hot and Inez and I walked around the outside of the Somerset Court building. Fred Smith was out riding around the building too. Inez picked up a few Canada thistle, they were little and damp, so they only hurt her a little. My granddaughter, Gwen Morgan, Woodbridge, Va., sent a great photo of her four kids, Melissa, Sarah, Kelsie and Tyler. It was special because Melissa and family were visiting there from Gillette, Wyo. They did some fun things while they were there, such as play

older sisters were kids. And they were still friends when I was a kid. So in my baby book, which is over at Wayne and Gwynn’s, we found a photo of my sister, Cecil, and Betty Jean’s mother, Margie Rausch, and me. We are on a big wood pile. It was taken in 1926 or 1928. The Sunday Rapid City Journal had a big article about good books to read. A few books mentioned were “Lot’s Return to Sodom,” by Sandra Brannan, “Guy Noir and the Straight Skinny,” by Garrison Keillor, “The Book Thief,” by Marcus Ausak. There are book clubs in Rapid City. For their August book, the Rapid City Public Library’s book club will read “Cutting for Stone,” by Abraham Verghese. Other books suggested for good reads are the Bible, “The Works of William Shakespeare,” and “The Peace Keeper,” by Sarah Addison Allen. I have been reading “Miracles Happen,” by Mary Kay Ash. It is the story of her life, in which she achieves success based on her principles of God first, family second, and career third. She mentions a helpful rule: Write yourself a list of six things to accomplish tomorrow. Prioritize. Monday, July 9, at Somerset Court after morning exercises, we had crafts with Shawn and Sandy. We made blue paper plate butterflies with colorful foam plastic dots and shapes to decorate them. Residents who attended were Fred Smith, Mildred Young, her helper Kay, Eileen, Marcella, Floy, Agnes, Addie, Inez, and Vivian. We took photos. We have a new Somerset Court resident on first floor, Delores Matusiak. We hope you like it here. Last week, Somerset Court resident, Ray Kraemer, took a trip back to Orient for his high school class reunion. He had a great time. His son from Missouri took him. There were 125 at the banquet. Ray met up with a lady he had walked to school with. She is 92. Ray’s sister in Texas is 90 and she did not come to the reunion. One lady at the banquet was 101 years old. There was a table of whist and a table of rummi-cube going on at the same time as the Monday movie. Thank you to my granddaughter, Ginger (Denke) Bennett, Riverton, Wyo. She sent a pretty baby shower thank you card. I still do not have her street address, so will send a card to her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Don Denke, Pavilion, Wyo. My niece, Wanda Meyer Artz, Humboldt, sent several old photos. I feel sure they were taken by her mother, Cecil Palmer Meyer. Most are one and a half inches by two and a fourth inches. Some of them had been removed from a black page album. One is dated 1923, Rise Studio, Rapid City. I could only positively identify one of these photos, the one of three girls on a white mule. They were Grace Jazek, Frances Rausch and Vivian Palmer on Ginny, Rausch’s white mule. We look like we are 12 or 13
in our country. “Elsie” weighs about three and a half pounds. In the wild, these birds eat most any small animal like mice, gophers, and snakes. She is 23 years old. She had been stolen from her nest by a human who wanted her for a pet. She had lived at Reptile Gardens up until two years ago. She can fly outdoors on a light leash. Another bird we saw was a tiny western screech owl. He was beautifully camouflaged. He blended in closely with a slab of pine bark. Owls have 14 vertebrae in their necks so they can turn about 270 degrees, and also move way up and over the top. However, their eyes do not pivot, so they have to turn their heads. Owls have big ear holes, which are concealed by feathers. He weighs about five ounces. “Boo” eats any kind of bug. “Boo” has been with them for seven years. We also saw a peregrine falcon. American kestrel, a beautifully patterned bird. He loves grasshoppers. He will separate the head and eat the brain first, because it contains the most concentrated nutrition. None of these birds can be released into the wild, because they have various inabilities to make it on their own. All three are very valuable species that eat mice and other pests. Thank you to Somerset Court and the Rapid City Raptor Society. Thursday at Somerset Court, the Wii bowling scores were as follows: Irene McKnight, 145, Fred Smith, 193, Anne Brink, 107, Jim Holmes, 107, Regina Alverson, 176, Eileen Tenold, 143, Irene Cox, 122, and Addie Rorvig, 139. The games were played on third floor on the new big screen TV. Thursday afternoon bingo winners were Irene McK., twice, Annetta, Violet, Mildred K., Betty Downen, and Charlie. Thank you Sandy for calling numbers. For snack and chat, we were served punch and assorted crackers and cheese slices. Today, I received a dear letter from my son, Leslie, in Bend, Ore. The New Palmer Vidette arrived from N. Stonington, Conn. It announced the annual meeting and potluck Sunday, August 12, 2012, at Pauchunganuc Farm and invites descendants of Walter Palmer and their friends to a meeting on land deeded to Walter’s son, Gershom, in the early 18th century. The farm house will be open for visitors. (Walter Palmer is my great-granddad about 11 generations back.) I have mentioned Palmer relative, Anna North Coit, (now 104 years old) who had helped write up the New Palmer Vidette. Descendants of Walter Palmer are invited and requested to write about themselves for the next edition of the New Palmer Vidette. In the July 12, 2012, Philip Pioneer Review, Del Bartels said, “Does anyone actually keep a diary anymore?” I have kept a journal since 1980 when we went on our round the world trip. Dozens of them.

Walter Van Tassel_______________________________
met Walter. There were several trips to Nebraska over the next year that culminated in their marriage in 1952. Walter continued to work the ranch with the Lee’s and started his family. Walter and Bill Lee established the Golden Willow Ranch on the original homestead, which raised registered Black Angus cattle, certified seed, farming and custom grain cleaning. Over the years, Walter worked hard to improve the quality of seed produced by Golden Willow Seeds. During this time period, Walter was recognized with several awards, including the 1991 South Dakota Certified Seed Grower of the year. In 1995, Walter and Joann were invited to participate as ambassadors for People to People mission and traveled to China. They also made trips to various locations in the United States and to Mexico. It was during this period that Walter got to meet and shake hands with former president, Jimmy Carter. All who knew Walter had no doubt of his honesty and work ethic. Seldom was work being done that he was not involved in. He enjoyed talking with people who came to visit or have grain cleaned. If you were around him for any amount of time, you got the benefit of his story telling and his ever-present big smile and a sparkle in his eyes. He also enjoyed working on all machinery, from the simplest to the most complex, and could get just about anything back up and running. Unfortunately, he never got around to building his “flying machine” but got to fly in an airplane with son Jim and finally got to ride in a helicopter last summer. One of his favorite pastimes was fishing. He always enjoyed hunting, playing the violin and accordion, and tinkering. Grateful for having shared his life are his wife of 59 years, Joann Van Tassel; four children, Steven Van Tassel (Susan) of Midland, Sandra Heaton (Dennis) of Midland, Linda Clavel (Ted) of Mankato, Minn., and James Van Tassel (Brenda) of Midland; eight grandchildren, Terri (Heaton) Staben, Gina (Heaton) Steinlicht, Jesse Heaton, Brady Clavel, Krista (Clavel) Brown, Michelle Van Tassel, LaRae Van Tassel and Ryan Van Tassel; five great-grandchildren Michael Steinlicht, Megan Steinlicht, Erika Steinlicht, Leah Staben and Zoe Staben; a halfbrother, Donald VanTassel of Ottumwa, Iowa; a half-sister, Eunice Valentine (Phil) of Ottumwa, Iowa; a special aunt, Fern Konst; and a special uncle, William “Billy” Lee. Walter was preceded in death by his parents, Walter and Ruth (Caster) Van Tassel; a half-brother, Vern Van Tassel; and his maternal grandparents, William and Pearl Lee. Funeral services were held Monday, July 16, at the American Legion Hall in Philip, with Pastor Kathy Chesney officiating. Music was provided by Barb Bowen, pianist, and Chuck and RuthAnn Carstensen, vocalists. Ushers were Reuben Vollmer and Mickey Daly. Pallbearers were Mark Foland, Glen Hostutler, Tony Willoughby, Ed Heeb, Dean Heeb and Vincent pallbearers Schofield.Honorary were his “birthday buddies,” Vern and Carrol Foland, Lawrence and Ronda Schofield, all of his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Interment was at the Masonic Cemetery in Philip. A memorial has been established to the Midland Volunteer Fire Department and the Midland Ambulance. Arrangements were with the Rush Funeral Home of Philip. His online guestbook is available at www.rushfuneralhome.com

Greetings from the parched Kadoka area. The wind has blown and temperatures soared to well over 100˚ for the past five days. It made me think of the 1950s when Philip continually hit the “hot spot of the nation.” No air conditioning to spoil the folks and work had to be done. Fred Williams worked at haying and would wrap a glass gallon jug with burlap bags and carry that to the field, sticking it into hay for more insulation. We kids slept in the basement because it was a lot cooler than the second story of the house. Richard and Beulah (Hespe) Neville gave me a little news about the Palmer, Hackworth and Neville family reunion held July 3-6 at a campground by Sturgis. They enjoyed a lot of family visiting. Monday, Don and Vi Moody had appointments in Kadoka at some of the offices over there. Monday afternoon visitors at our place were Tony Harty, Dean Parsons and Phyllis Word. I visited Muree Struble in the morning. Bill and L.T. Works were busy with harvest for Terry Buchert. Tony Harty had an early morning call Monday. Shirley Hair needed help. She had been stung by a hornet and Tony took her to Philip to the clinic where she got a shot. They did a little business in Philip, then had lunch when they got back to Kadoka. Tuesday, Don and Vi Moody had their satellite TV receivers all updated and replaced by technicians from Rapid City. Boy, did that make a difference. It pays off to complain and it was determined that the receivers were placed in service in 2002, so no wonder things needed to be updated! While I was in Philip with the Haakon County Prairie Transportation van at the dentist’s office Tuesday, it was nice to see Hank Hamill and family from Oklahoma. They have been harvesting in the Philip and Milesville area for many years. On the way home, we saw the smoke from a fire that was north of Kadoka. Luckily, it was put out before it did too much damage. Tony Harty stopped by our place for a visit. Richard and Beulah Neville also stopped in the afternoon. Beulah got a rude surprise when she attempted to get her driver's license that day. Just having an existing license in your possession doesn't do much good. She didn't know she also needed her birth certificate, Social Security card (original), marriage license, two bills with her name and physical address. (Post office boxes are not accepted and bills have to be in her name, not her husband’s.) Anyway, had a nice visit and she will try again when she rounds up all those things. Bill, L.T. Works and Judy DeWitt and I went to Rapid for the car races. It was a late start and really dirty because the track wasn't prepared right. We got home late. The guys were up and off to the field by 6:00 a.m. and got moved to Plainview for the next fields. Tuesday, Tony Harty had breakfast out then checked to see how Shirley Hair was getting along from the hornet sting. She had a stiff neck, figured it was a reaction to the shot. Tony's niece, Kathy
Brown, had been in Rochester, Minn., getting fitted for her special hearing aid and got back just in time to get in on the second softball game going on it Philip that evening. Tony was there to support the Weta River Rats. George, Sandee and Kelsey Gittings, along with many other family members, attended a potluck/ cookout at the home of Zoni Thorson Tuesday evening to help Jody Gittings celebrate his birthday. Wednesday, Tony Harty was at the courthouse. That evening, he watched the trap shooters. Wednesday morning, Chaciel Koscielski and Aviana stopped on their way to Sioux Falls. I fixed them waffles for a quick breakfast and sent them on their way. Cousin John Fairchild called from Virginia Beach, Va., he said to greet all the bridge players. Phyllis Word visited me in the afternoon.

Walter Van Tassel, age 88 of Midland, died Thursday, July 12, 2012, at the Hans P. Peterson Memorial Hospital in Philip. Walter Harlan Van Tassel was born February 16, 1924, in Ottumwa, Iowa, to Walter E. and Ruth Van Tassel. Walter (“Junior” to many) moved to the Midland area in 1929 where he lived with his grandparents, William and Pearl Lee, on the 1912 homestead ranch north of Ottumwa and was raised like brothers and sister with his aunt, Fern (Lee) Konst, and his uncle, Bill Lee. Walter was educated at the Mattison Country School where he graduated the eighth grade. Walter continued to farm and ranch with the Lees and became very mechanically inclined, working on the farm equipment, keeping it moving during the war years (baling wire and a good set of pliers will fix anything). In 1951, a custom farming crew from Nebraska made its way into the Ottumwa (S.D.) area. Joann Walker, who was driving truck for her parents, was invited to a birthday party for Bill Lee, where she

Jack Louis Brunsch, age 60 of Norris, S.D., died suddenly, on Monday, July 9, 2012, while working at his ranch. Jack Louis Brunsch was born March 17, 1952, in Kadoka, the son of Paul and Lucille (Peck) Brunsch. He began grade school in a one room school house located two miles from the ranch home. He later attended grade school at Norris, before attending Bennett County High School, graduating in 1970. He began his college career at South Dakota State University in Brookings, then transferred to Missoula, Mont., before graduating from Black Hills State College, majoring in biology and chemistry. Jack’s first and main interest was his children. He also loved ranching, team roping, gardening, golfing, skiing, and generally all outdoor activities with family and friends. Throughout his years in rodeo, Jack received many buckles and

Midland News
(con’t. from last week) Our son, Les, and his wife, Jolene, Monroe, N.C., arrived at our home on July 2. July 3, Les and Jolene took us out for supper at Murdo for our 52nd wedding anniversary. Our son, Christopher, Mitchell, met us there. Stephanie had planned on coming as well but their daughter, Laura, was not feeling up to par so she thought it best she stay home. She encouraged Christopher to go as he had not seen Les and Jolene for a number of years. Les and Jolene were going to stop at Mitchell on their way back to Sioux City, Iowa, having a chance to see Stephanie and to meet their newest niece, Laura. July 4, we all headed for Spearfish where Les and Jolene had camping reservations at the campground there. Our son, Jim and Carmen Nemec, Kayla and Dale, Belle Fourche and our daughter, April and Steve Meeker and Miranda, Spearfish, and her boyfriend, MacKenzie, joined us at the campground where we enjoyed visiting and supper together. Part of the day, Les and Jim went on motorcycle rides in the Black Hills, while the rest of us got in on some card games and double 12 dominoes. It is absolutely beautiful at that campground with the Spearfish creek and bike trail close by. Some of us went for a walk along the creek. There is just something soothing about walking along side that bubbling creek. We were also within walking distance of the Spearfish fish hatchery and we also went on a tour of the Booth home. July 5, bright and early, Jolene took Les and Christopher to Deadwood where they were going to ride bicycles from Deadwood to Hill City. Jolene, Carmen and Jim met them there bringing them back to the campground. Les and Christopher had some good joshing back and forth about that bike trip. Les has done a lot of bicycling which Christopher hasn’t, so Les took him out. Christopher challenged him to a run, but Les decided to pass on that. We spent a good part of the day at the campground and once again had supper there as a group with a lot more visiting, and some more card games and double 12 dominoes. All of our kids were together except for Charlene, who as you already know is off on her summer travels. Les took over her camera duties, getting lots and lots of pictures. All too soon it was time to head home, leaving the beautiful Black Hills and coming home to our parched land. Bill Kunkle, Harrisburg, Ore., was in the Midland area today, Monday, and stopped in for a short visit on his way to Philip to visit his friend, Gay Logan. It was good to finally meet Bill. We have talked on the phone a number of times, so it was good to see him in person and to have a bit of a visit. Wishing each of you a great week. Keep cool and pray for that much needed rain. The Midland Community Library Board met at the library July 5, 2012, with Robin Bierle, Jenna Finn, Jennie Byle, Betty Sinkey, Mary Parquet, Christine Niedan, Carol Hunt and librarian Karel Reiman present. Jenna gave a report on the summer reading program and thanked the board for the T-shirt they had given her, “Bee a Reader,” which was the theme of the summer reading program. The board also voted to give a donation to Trinity Lutheran Church for the use of their education room. Librarian Karel told of the great DVDs Keith Hunt had donated to the library. So, kids come and check them out. The next library board will be in October. (this week’s news) It continues to be very hot and very dry! And to top it off, the grasshoppers are in big supply at different places. People are spraying for them trying to save their gardens as best they can. Millet, corn and spring wheat are burning up as well as sudan and pastures. It has been one of those summers! I feel sorry for those folks who have to work outside in this heat. Some folks get up bright and early in the morning trying to get some work done before the heat of the day begins at 7:00 a.m., most days. The other evening, Jerry and I took a drive out to the campground for a bit of supper. There used to be gas pumps there when Glen Freeman had the campground. Jerry hauled gas out there and also fuel for the heater Glenn had for the swimming pool. So we have a lot of memories of that campground! It rained a bit while we were there, not long, but a bit. There is just something refreshing about the smell of rain, especially when you haven’t had a rain for a long spell. The temperature dropped from 93˚ to 77˚ so we knew it must have hailed somewhere. A camper came into the eating area for a bite of supper. He said he had run into some hail west on I-90. Community Vacation Bible School “Son Quest Rainforest” July 30 and 31 and August 1, 2, and 3 from 9:00 a.m. through 12:00 p.m. at the Open Bible Church in Midland for ages four through sixth grade.

can have fun with Christmas in July nonetheless. Come to the Midland Park this Friday, July 20, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. Look for traditional Christmas foods. Hear some Christmas music. Share the holiday with your friends and neighbors. Sounds like a fun time don’t you think. I think so, and maybe thinking of Christmas will get our minds off of all this heat we have been having. Thanks Beth for the interesting history of how Christmas in July got started. We wish to express our sincere sympathies to the Walter Van Tassel family as Walter passed away at the age of 88 on July 12, 2012. I remember interviewing Walter for the Pioneer Review. He was the first person I had ever interviewed and what an interesting story he had to tell. I was amazed as he told his story! It was as if it had happened yesterday! I found it interesting as he told of coming from Ottumwa, Iowa, to South Dakota. And with other folks coming from Ottumwa, Iowa, and settling in the same area they decided to call it Ottumwa, S.D. No matter what, Walter had that smile, and a time to chat! May the good memories carry you through the days to come! MIDLAND MARKET, FRIDAY, JULY 20 - Christmas in July – 6 to 8 p.m. – GET YOUR SHOPPING DONE EARLY! Seasonal items also! I received the following two reports from Mahlon Alcock: “I was privileged to be Jewel (Belkstrom) Coverdale’s student in the 19301931 school terms. She drove her father’s Model T Ford to our place the first week where she stayed so she could drive to each parents’ to become acquainted. I assume no self-starter and can’t remember if she could crank it or not. Irene Peterson and Carol (Joy) Schilling were at our place before Jewel.” Mahlon also wrote: “Somehow an old wagon must have gotten left over from my community auction sale and was asked to just leave it sit on one of Midland’s Main Street lots. As the box deteriorated, Richard Doud didn’t think it looked very nice.( And it didn’t.) So he asked to repair it. When you drive by, stop and look over the nice job he did. Then personally thank him when you meet. It would be interesting to learn the history of those distinctive broad faced steel rims, too.” I personally want to thank Mahlon for his input. I much appreciate hearing from folks with stories they have to tell. You don’t always know about them and when someone shares their stories it is interesting. Keith Hunt reported the following as well: “On July 11, 2012, I spoke to Mike Munk, bicycle tour leader and mechanic for “America by Bicycle.” They left from Astoria, Ore., 24 days ago and are due to arrive in Portsmouth, N.H., on the 6th of August, a distance of about 3,700 miles. Average age is about 60, two were under 50 and the oldest is 71 years old. There are 50 riders who average about 80 miles per day with today’s run from Wall to Pierre, about 117 miles is one of the longest. They left Astoria, Ore., on about the 17th of June traveling through almost all of Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, South Dakota, North Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, taking a ferry across Lake Michigan, Michigan, Canada, Niagara, New York, Vermont and arriving in Portsmouth, N.H., on

Bible Church in Midland Saturday, July 14. In talking with Patricia this Saturday evening, she said 106 people had registered. Fifty years ago from that date, on their wedding day, it rained! Fifty years later it was 104˚ and there was no rain! Three of Calvin and Pat’s kids and their families were able to come home. Their son, Thad, and his family weren’t able to make it due to commitments. Johnnie Saucerman, Dustin, Colten, Branson and Kendall, Tea, were there. Johnnie’s oldest daughter, Alisha, and her husband, John Oldenberg, Philip, were also there. Johnnie’s wife, Becky, was unable to come. Brent and Julie Saucerman, Lawrence, Devin and Golden, Hot Springs, were there. Patricia said their daughter was named Golden after Patricia’s mother. Miles and his fiancée, Laura Duke, Westminister, Colo., were also there. Brent and Julie had some chips made up to give to everyone with the picture of Calvin and Patricia on the front of the chip which was in the ad about the anniversary open house in the Pioneer Review. Calvin said that picture was taken on their 45th wedding anniversary at a building on the place of his folks, John and Leora Saucerman. I did like that picture! On the back of the chip it had, “50 Years of Gambling.” “Saucerman next year farm.” “50th anniversary.” That often is the motto of a farmer … next year! Three of Calvin’s Midland High School graduates were at the open house, Sally (Nemec) Ehlers, David Hand and Miriam (Abel) Schilling. As many of you know, Miriam and her husband, Ivan Schilling, lived and had a business in Midland for many years and are now living in Gillette, Wyo. All of their kids and families live there as well. It was good to see them again! Patricia’s sister, Bernice Redli, Laurel, Mont., came for the open house. Mike Maskovich, Ft. Pierre, was also there. He grew up next door to the family home where Patricia and Bernice grew up.Calvin and Patricia much appreciated all who came to help make their anniversary a memorable one. Darron and Kathy (Reiman) Neson, Minnetonka, Minn., arrived at the home of Karel Reiman, Friday, and joined Karel, Steve, Patrick and Becca Reiman, Mandan, N.D., and Mark Reiman, Kadoka, for a summer get-together. Karel’s daughter, Ann, and her husband, Maynard Moege, Mitchell, weren’t able to come as they were in Kimball for a family reunion on Maynard’s side. On Sunday, everyone traveled to Rapid City to see Grandma Goldie and Aunt Paula Eisenbraun, taking them out to eat at noon. Most of the family then toured a couple tourist attractions before returning to the Reiman farm. Becca and her aunt, Kathy, donned aprons Monday and baked up a tasty cake to help Mark celebrate an early July birthday. After the Nelson’s left for home on Tuesday, Karel and her

grandkids had lunch at the 1880 Train Diner and spent the afternoon exploring the 1880 Town. This is something they try to do each summer as Patrick and Becca enjoy exploring each and every building. Since Mark’s team was playing softball in Philip, Wednesay evening, all the family drove over to watch those games. After one last visit to the cats in the barn, Patrick, Becca and their dad headed back to Mandan, Thursday afternoon. I drove out to the home of Shad and Jenna Finn Friday to get a tour of Jenna’s yard that I had heard so much about. What an interesting and beautiful yard they have! Jenna has put a lot of time and work into that yard and Shad has had some input into that yard as well. As you walk from spot to spot in that yard each spot has a story. I thoroughly enjoyed the tour! Shad, Jenna, Cass and Cole, were going up to Philip later in the day as the boys are taking swimming lessons. And then it was off, to Spearfish where they spent the night and Saturday morning Jenna was participating in a 5k run in Spearfish Canyon. At church Sunday, I asked Jenna how she did. She was pleased with her run and enjoyed being a part of it. I learned that Julie Daly has also done some 5k runs. So, these young gals are keeping themselves in shape! Midland Market is having fun on July 20 with the theme 'Christmas in July.' This holiday was given national attention when the Hollywood movie of the same name was released in 1940. In the story, a man is fooled into believing he has won $25,000 in an advertising slogan contest. He buys presents for family, friends and neighbors, and proposes marriage to his girlfriend. Beth Flom wrote a rather interesting story of Christmas in July which is what Midland Market is planning on having at Midland’s city park Friday, July 20. In 1942, the Calvary Baptist Church in Washington, D.C., celebrated Christmas in July with carols and the sermon "Christmas Presents in July." They repeated it in 1943, with a Christmas tree covered with donations. The pastor explained that the special service would allow the congregation to present Christmas gifts early to give ample time for their distribution to missions worldwide. It became an annual event, and in 1946 the service began to be broadcast over local radio. The U.S. Post Office and U.S. Army and Navy officials, in conjunction with the American advertising and greeting card industries, threw a Christmas in July luncheon in New York in 1944, and again in 1945, to promote an early Christmas mailing campaign for service men and women overseas during World War II. In the southern hemisphere, where July falls in winter, Christmas in July events sometimes have a winter Christmas theme. These may be a standard Christmas style celebration, held at a cold time of year, as Christmas is in the northern hemisphere. Particularly relevant to New Zealand and Australia where a December Christmas is sweltering, the holiday falls on the 25th of July. Perhaps the idea of the Christmas in July is popular because much of the culture in Australia and New Zealand is derived from Europe in the Northern Hemisphere. It may be sweltering here, but we

about the 6th of August. Their website is www.bamacyclist.com.π 2012. journals “Across America North.” I was told that I would be on their website tonight, so I’ll be watching, reports Keith. Can you imagine riding a bicycle in this heat? Yikes! Christina Zuccaro lives and teaches on the Tinian Island and came to rural Midland to the farm of her folks, Chuck and Eleanor Zuccaro, June 20. She is also visiting her sister, Paula, who lives with her husband at Quinn. Christina is married to Ed Temengil and will be heading home July 23. She said she will be missing the Sturgis bike rally this year! Tinian is a small island, less than 40 square miles, a flat green dot in the vastness of Pacific blue. Christina has taught there for 16 years and this year will be teaching sixth grade math and science to 50 students on the block system. In visiting with Christina, I asked if she had ever thought she would wind up on the island of Tinian someday? Laughing she said, “No.” She sent me a picture of water and a beach not far from where she lives. The colors were amazing, a mix of blues and turquoise! Absolutely beautiful! Life’s journey is an interesting journey is it not? And then there are those of us who tend to stay in our comfort zone! Christina sent me an email with pictures and some history of where she lives that she had gotten from a friend. In the email it told that when you fly over it and you notice a slash across its north end of uninhabited bush, a long thin line that looks like an overgrown dirt runway. If you didn’t know what it was, you wouldn’t give it a second glance out your airplane window. On the ground, you see the runway isn’t dirt but tarmac and crushed limestone, abandoned with weeds sticking out of it. Yet this is arguably the most historical airstrip on earth. This is where World War II was won. This is Runway Able. There were also pictures of the bomb loading pit. For those who served in the military during this time, they would be an up and personal period of this time. It is a humbling and historical time in history. At the close of the email it told, “Although we do not forget, history fades into the shadows of our minds and we seldom think about it. But, we should remember and we should be constantly reminded of our history, where we came from and how we got here.” Christina told that Joe Woitte has been to Tinian, as he was stationed at Guam at one time when he was serving in the Air Force. There is a lot of history in Tinian where Christina and her husband live and in Saipan which is less than a mile north of Tinian. And on that note … may we never take our freedom for granted. *** The Midland Senior Citizens met at the center on July 2, 2012, with 10 members present. President Kandus Woitte called the meeting to order and led in the flag salute. The minutes of the June meeting were read and approved. The treasurer’s report was given. George Stroppel moved to accept, Jessie Dale seconded the motion and motion passed. The committee reports, three cards were sent, the July bulletin board was done and George Stroppel had mowed the lawn and fixed a loose place on the roof. Kandus Woitte had the plate for Ora Keiffer’s memorial engraved and installed it on the board. Beth Flom reported that the Midland Market would have a special once a month, such as Fiesta Day, Fifties Day etc. Meeting adjourned. Mickey Woitte secretary *** I am sending my news in this Sunday evening as I will be heading for Spearfish early Monday morning. Our daughter, April Meeker, recently had surgery, got out of the hospital on Saturday and is home recuperating. Her husband, Steve, is leaving Monday morning for Britton, for the funeral service of his dad, Virgil Meeker, which is on Tuesday of this week. April and Steve’s daughter, Miranda, is leaving for New Orleans Monday evening for a week at church youth camp. So, I am heading up to help out as April is not up to doing much at the moment. This Sunday afternoon it got up to 110˚ by our temperature gauge which has been right at what the weather man reports over the weather news. Kind of makes you think of those folks during the dirty 30s. Some differences being, they didn’t have air conditioning and they didn’t have rural water. So, even though we’ve had some extremely hot days we don’t have it as bad as they did. Wishing each of you a good week! And be safe, watch for fires and keep yourself hydrated when working out in this heat.

The WR/L-J Rural Water System installed another pasture tap at Moodys mid-week and they finished that up with the new turtle reader meter in place and new rubber water tanks were delivered also. So, Don and Vi now have water pipelines in every pasture of their property. Dams hopefully will fill up so they won't be needed as the only source of water. Sandee and Kelsey Gittings went to Mt. Rushmore Wednesday afternoon and did some shopping in Rapid City for Kelsey to get things ready for her apartment in Laramie, Wyo., for the next college year. Checking cattle and water and watching for any fires keeps ranchers busy. Vi Moody got on the alert when she saw a lot of smoke Tuesday morning. It was north of Kadoka. Don was in town at the time, so Vi quickly called the Philip Volunteer Fire Department and the smoke looked like it was in one of their three east pastures … but relief came thanks to Greg Arthur who said it wasn't on their place. It's a good time to be on the alert until rains come. Mark and Cindy Hahn invited Don and Vi to come visit them at their new Mississippi River cottage at Lansing, Iowa, which borders the Mississippi River on the west side. Mark and Cindy live in Wisconsin (a three hour drive to Lansing) and they recently bought a cottage and house boat there. Mark is one of the deer hunters at Moodys and surrounding area for many years and Mark calculated their driving distance only eight hours via I-90 all the way across Minnesota to get them there. So, Don and Vi are getting packed as soon as rain comes. Richard and Beulah Neville were called to help out at their daughter's, Linda Merkle, in Spearfish, Friday when she became ill. They returned home Sunday. Tony Harty visited Shirley Hair Thursday. The afternoon visit at the home of Kathy Brown proved beneficial since Kathy gave him a hair cut. That evening, Tony watched the kids play baseball here in Kadoka. Bill and L.T. Works worked themselves out of a job by Thursday night. I made a trip to Philip to take care of business. Friday, Tony Harty had breakfast out then spent the better part of the day at the courthouse. I had a van run the better part of the day. Had lunch out. Tony visited at our place, and with Shirley Hair, later in the day. Tony watched the men’s softball games at the diamonds in Kadoka that evening. Bill and L.T. Works and Judy DeWitt and I went to Rapid City to the car races Friday night. Another night of mega dirt with the track not being ready for races. Eric Seager, Eli and Andy Koscielski joined us for supper and at the races. Eli's first races and he handled it quite well. The hottest day was Saturday at 102˚ in Sturgis. Ralph and Cathy Fiedler worked an extra day this week and are busy trying to keep the yard from burning up. The Eric Hanson family went to Beau and Jamie Stewart’s at Beresford for the weekend. Saturday, cousin Janet (Fairchild) Snow, Redding, Calif., called and visited. She sends greetings to friends in the Philip community. She enjoyed reading the Blast from the Past that announced her birth, right along with Fred (Fritz) Kroetch. I had a visitor of Tom Thompson, Presho, a pilot, who stopped to see how the airport was doing and checking into planes that might be for sale. Well, the fellows weren't raced out yet. Bill and L.T. picked up Terry Buchert in Philip and then picked up Leonard Konst on the way through Sturgis heading to the races in Gillette, Wyo. Terry stopped off with Leonard on the way home and they were going to watch drag races Sunday. Bill got home and was busy putting flowers in a vase about 3:00 a.m. to surprise me. Boy, was that a birthday surprise. Sandee and Kelsey Gittings drove up to the Blair cemetery Friday afternoon. Later, they and George had supper in town. Kelsey spent the night with Steven and Beth Stewart to be on hand early Saturday morning to go to Chamberlain for softball and then on to Sioux Falls where they met Kinsey, Natalie and Kohen Gittings and spent the night. Kinsey, Natalie, Kohen and Kelsey returned to their homes in Iowa Sunday morning. Saturday, Don and Vi Moody made a quick run into Rapid City for a raking tractor part and a stop at Rapid Valley property to check things out up that way and a stop in at Wall Drug for a quick ice tea and on back into the ranch. A sprinkle of rain did happen that night to settle the dust. Lawn and tree watering is almost a full time job. Saturday, Tony Harty had breakfast out, then visited here at our place. It was a hot day. He visited with Kathy Brown when she got home from softball games at Chamberlain for those 35 and over. Sunday, Eric Seager, Eli and Chaciel and Andy came by in the afternoon after they stopped at Wall Drug and went through the Badlands. From there we went out for supper in celebration of three birthdays. Tony Harty attended church Sunday, had dinner out, and visited with John Herber. He had a good idea of checking out the 4-H Rodeo at the Kadoka Buffalo Stampede Rodeo grounds, but it was just too darned hot, so he went home and stayed in where it was cooler. “If you can't stand the heat, stay out of the kitchen.” Think Rain!

What a hot, dry week we've had. The temperatures have been over 100˚ for several days with the hottest on Sunday at 107˚. Keep praying for rain! Our community extends sympathy to the family of Walter Van Tassel, age 88, who died July 12 in Philip. Terri Staben from our community is his grandaughter. Congratulations, Connor Hovland on your fifth birthday Friday, the 13th! His grandpa, Allen, came and had supper with the family that evening. Sunday, he celebrated again at the park and swimming pool in Philip. Those at the party for cake and ice cream and the fun were Allen Hovland, Kelly and Deanna Fees, Joe and Debbie Prouty, Quentin, Kylie, Timothy and Wesley Riggins, James, Melony and Preston Gyles and Rob, Andrea, Clancy and Callum Goodman. Guests for supper Saturday night at Bill and Karyl Sandal's were Jim and Vonnie O'Dea and Donnie and Marcia Eymer. Sandals and O'Deas were celebrating their 50th anniversaries and Eymers, their 52nd. Congratulations, folks! Glen and Jackie Radway enjoyed the Kevin Locke Native American Dance Group at Deadwood July 11. Spending the weekend at Glen and Jackie's were Darin, Leah and Deacon Ries, Pierre. Dan and Gayla Piroutek attended the Pat Trask picnic last Saturday night on a panoramic bluff near Smithville overlooking the Cheyenne River. C.K. Howard had originally owned some of that land, as he had selected that area during some of his travels with Custer. Mr. Howard was known as the founder of Sioux Falls as he set up the first trading post in that city. They also saw the Trask irrigation system as they went on an extensive hay ride around the
Denke’s yard and garden are an oasis on the prairie
Marvin (Dusty) Denke enjoys every inch of his two acres west of Philip. He has numerous apple trees and a garden that he shares with family and friends. Marvin started at a young age helping his father tend the garden and 70 years later he still enjoys the hobby. He said his other hobby is fishing and he knows every good fishing hole in the county. For his garden he uses the lawn clipping for mulch and soaker hoses. He built cages for cucumbers and tomatoes out of lightweight cattle panels. The panels are cut to size and bent to form a u-shape structure. Marvin said it is so much easier to pick the cukes off the vine. He said his garden isn’t as good this year as in past years. The growing season’s late start combined with damage from a neighbor’s spray has taken a toll on his garden. The spray has damaged some of his winter squash, seen in the foreground and his tomatoes, peppers and eggplants were either killed or severely damaged by the spray residue. Other items in his garden include red beets, carrots, leaf lettuce, radishes, and summer squash. Marvin also enjoys the animals that come into his yard. He said the animals don’t bother the garden, but the deer like to come graze the fallen apples in the fall. He has several bird feeders and bird baths scattered around this yard. Cottontails are also drawn to the oasis of Marvin’s yard – the cooling shade of the numerous trees and the native grasses. Photo by Nancy Haigh property. After the picnic under the tent, the guest speaker was Bishop Gruss, Catholic bishop for western South Dakota. He spoke about religious freedoms in our country. There was a band and a beautiful flag lighting ceremony, the traditional fireworks display over the river was canceled due to the dry conditions. Dan and Gayla spent the night at the Lonnie Arneson home, attending mass Sunday morning at a little country church,

Summer T-ball baseball finishes FCCLA at national conference
by Del Bartels Five Philip High School students attended the Family Career Community Leaders of America’s National Leadership Conference held in Orlando, Fla., July 7-12. The local FCCLA group was represented by Nelson Holman, Blake Martinez, and Tristen Rush who had won first place at the state level in the junior illustrated talk competition. On the national level, they earned a gold, the top rating possible. Philip’s Kelsie Kroetch also attended nationals, as the South Dakota FCCLA first vice president. Kroetch represented South Dakota at the sessions and attended meetings to bring back information. Philip FCCLA member Gavin Brucklacher attended for the experience. This was the second national meeting for Brucklacher and for Kroetch. In all, there were about 130 FCCLA members from South Dakota at the national convention. FCCLA adviser Brigitte Brucklacher stated that the pre-trip fundraising activities covered only part of the group’s expenses. She stated that there were “no comments from the judges. We don’t see score cards until August. Gold rating is the result. It is the best they could have done. There are no champions or winners, just gold, silver and bronze ratings. The honor is to be the state champion to compete for your state at nationals.” “I was very proud of my members,” stated B. Brucklacher. “They represented their school and state very well. The topic of the team’s illustrated talk was distracted driving, which was a very timely and important topic, especially for teens.” Rush said that the most enjoyable time during the FCCLA trip was “hanging out at the beach, Universal Studios and Disney World.” The worst aspect of the trip? “I didn’t find anything horrible; I liked everything. The funniest was probably hanging out in the hotel room – messed around and had fun,” said Rush. “I learned that FCCLA is fun and educational.” Holman stated, “The entire trip was amazing and unexplainable. If I had to pick out a few of the many good things, I would choose meeting tons of new people and being able to experience the city life. The worst thing was not being able to stay longer and make it a big vacation.” Holman continued, “The whole trip was a blast and packed full of funny moments with our many new friends and our awesome moms. One big difference was that when we were there, we had more than two or three restaurants to choose from. This national FCCLA trip in Orlando, Fla., was one of the most amazing experiences in my life and will never be forgotten!” Martinez stated, “The best thing about the FCCLA trip was meeting new friends, and the all around vacation setting of Florida. The worst part of the trip is a hard one. Not

Anything and everything required a lot of money.” Martinez continued, “I learned a lot about people from other states; hobbies they did and how kids from their schools behaved; especially from the people who went to a big school. This was a once in a lifetime experience, I hope we make it again next year.” Kroetch stated, “The best thing about the FCCLA trip was getting to spend it with my fellow South Dakota state officers because they are such a great group of people and we made some lasting memories. I am the first vice president for South Dakota, which is why I got to go to Orlando along with the boys for their illustrated talk. The worst thing was probably having to leave. I loved it down in Florida! For me, the funniest incident was when myself and two other officers were stuck at a different hotel because the bus driver said he had made his last stop, but forgot to drop us off at our own hotel.” Kroetch added, “I learned that it really does pay off to go out of your comfort zone and try something new because you never know who or what will come out of it! I truly had an amazing time in Orlando and loved representing our wonderful state of South Dakota! I am so proud of the boys for getting a gold medal on their illustrated talk!” Rush believed his team earned a gold rating because, “We knew what we were talking about. We had a lot of information.” Holman stated, “First of all we worked hard and we chose a topic that can have an affect on almost everyone! Also we got the point across well and didn’t drag on forever. We put in a real life scenario demonstration that really gets the people not to lose interest, while simultaneously it sets home on how dangerous distracted driving can be. But all in all there is no way we could’ve received a gold without all of the help from our amazing teacher Mrs. Brucklacher and our parents!” Martinez stated, “I believe we earned a gold because we presented really well. Everything went as planned and we aced the presentation!

the rains they have received. It is good that some areas are able to put up some cattle feed! They attended church Sunday, and Monday Billy attended the funeral for Walter Van Tassel. Arlyne said Billy has had calls from some cattle producers who are getting ready to wean calves and sell some cows due to the drought. I'm sure we'll see a lot more of that in the coming weeks. Nels and Dorothy Paulson were in Philip on business last Wednesday. They have been baling what little hay there is around the place, but several hours a day have been spent in the house, getting some relief from the heat. Dorothy said there was a deer in their garden in broad daylight the other day – usually the deer wait until dark! And the Paulson's also reported a lot of skunks in their area – nasty buggers. Sometimes I wonder what God had in mind when he created certain things, and skunks are on that list. What is their purpose? Bill and Polly Bruce had a busy family-filled week. Their son, David, was at the ranch all last week helping with projects, and he returned to his home in Rapid City Friday. Thursday, Fuzz and Jeri Redden, Fuzz's sister, Mildred, and their cousin, Hazel Rathbun, were at Bruce's for noon lunch and visiting. Later in the afternoon, Linda (Bruce) Lutter, son Joey, and grandchildren, Jake and Sammy Mills, came to the ranch for a visit, leaving Saturday. Friday, son Andy Bruce came from his home in Pierre to spend a couple of days. Also Friday, daughter Vicki (Bruce) Erickson, Madison, came to the ranch to spend a few days, helping Polly with some painting while Polly helped Vicki with some sewing. Sunday, daughter Marcia (Bruce) Simon, Eagle Butte, came for an afternoon of visiting. Monday, son David arrived back at the ranch to help with projects. One project the Bruces are working on is running a water line to one of the south pastures. Their brother-inlaw, Gene Jones, is helping with that project. Monday, when I spoke with Polly, twins Vince and Vicki were celebrating their 32nd birthdays! Congratulations to them! Clark and Carmen Alleman attended church Sunday, then traveled to Philip to visit Carmen's father, Roy Roseth. While in Philip, they also attended visitation for Walter Van Tassel. Marge Briggs said she was enjoying the heat – it gives her an excuse to stay inside and take it easy. It was 106˚ at Marge's when I talked to her. Marge said the whole earth appears to suffer when it is this hot. She said she also has skunks and coons at her house – they come to her front step and eat some of the cat food. She said so far they have been well behaved, so

Moenville News
by Leanne Neuhauser • 567-3325
Greetings from hot, parched, breezy northeast Haakon County. Actually, as I write this, it is early morning, so it is relatively cooler, and we are receiving a few drops of rain, even though it is mostly sunny here at the moment. Crazy weather! Yesterday, my outdoor thermometer seemed to be stuck on 110˚ for the better part of the day – way too hot for man or beast, or machinery, for that matter. I was surprised early yesterday morning to see a small fox in my vegetable garden, getting a drink. He was so desperate for a drink that he kept drinking, even after he saw me! I'm sure there are a lot of animals in that predicament these days. I wonder how the young pheasants are faring in this hot, dry weather. The livestock and the crops are all suffering, and hopefully we'll receive some much needed rain before too long. In the meantime, I guess we'll just deal with the conditions that Mother Nature throws our way – we don't really have a choice. First of all, I want to wish my mother, Letoy Brown, a very happy birthday! Mom turns 80 this year, so to celebrate, my siblings and I and several of our children and grandchildren joined mom at a bed and breakfast to spend a couple of days visiting and reminiscing. We stayed at the little log cabin that was home to mom's sister and brother-in-law, Louisa and Vint Williams. It is a little cabin, tucked under a hill on the Bad River, and it was a place where a lot of our family's memories were made as we were growing up. It was too hot to go hiking to the "Wonderland," an area along the creek that was a place of adventure when we were young, and it was also too hot to make forts out of square bales as we used to do (much to Uncle Vint's chagrin, I'm sure). But nonethe-
less, it was a wonderful event in honor of a wonderful woman, and I hope we get to celebrate many more birthdays with her! As I was out in the yard the other day, uncomfortable with the heat and the flies, I was trying to think of anything positive about this beastly weather we have been enduring. The first thing that came to mind is that I sure haven't had to spend much time mowing, because the grass isn't growing. A few of the weeds continue to grow somehow, but that is about it. One more positive thing is that there are virtually no mosquitoes around here – it is too dry for them to hatch, I guess. Also, the roads aren't muddy, making it easier to get to and from wherever you are going – that is, if you want to get out and travel in this heat. And those of us who farm are using less diesel fuel, since Mother Nature did most of the harvesting for us. The heat is giving my favorite farmer a chance to rest in the afternoon, because it is just too hot to be outside laboring – he starts early in the morning and gets as much done as possible before the heat drives him inside. The hot, dry wind makes short work of drying the clothes on the line – no need to run the dryer. Also, the apples falling on the ground give me a good opportunity to get exercise – all that bending and stretching as I pick them up has got to be good for my muscles. And since more apples fall every time the wind blows, I get that exercise opportunity on nearly a daily basis! Other than that, I am about out of positive thoughts regarding this weather. Rain will be very welcome, whenever it comes. I extend my sympathy to the family of Walter Van Tassel. He was such a well respected man and known far and wide for his honesty and hard work and friendly demeanor. He will be missed. Now on to the news. Lola Roseth was in Rapid City last week for some doctor's appointments, and Dick and Gene Hudson were supper guests one evening in honor or Duane's birthday. Saturday, Lola and Duane were in Wall to take in the parade. From there they went to Rapid City to run a few errands and have a short visit with their daughter and son-inlaw, Kacey and John Gerlach. On the way back home, they stopped at Pat and Rosemary Trask's annual celebration near Elm Springs. Lola said there was a good crowd and good music. Sunday, after church, Duane and Lola went to Pierre to see about some flooring for their home. Lola said they have had a lot of skunks and coons at their house – there are now a few less, thanks to Duane. Dick and Gene Hudson were in Philip on Sunday watching their grandson Avery play baseball. Gene said the temperature in Philip was 114˚ – I suggested that maybe Gene should have her head examined! Monday, Dick and Gene were among those attending funeral services in Philip for Walter Van Tassel. Later Monday, grandsons Avery and Noah were at Gene's house, working on 4-H projects. Wyatt Johnson was in Pierre Friday having his wisdom teeth removed, and he is recovering well. Jon and Connie Johnson and family were in Philip Sunday for the baseball games, and Monday Jon, Connie and Wyatt attended the Van Tassel funeral. Billy and Arlyne Markwed traveled to Dupree Saturday evening to attend a rodeo. Arlyne said things are greener in that area, thanks to
she leaves them alone. Marge's garden continues to grow, thank goodness. Marge was in Pierre for a doctor's appointment Friday, and she got good results, which is very good news. Julian Roseth was in Philip Monday for the Van Tassel funeral, and Coreen Roseth was in North Dakota for a family funeral there. Clint Alleman is finished with wheat harvest, so he can relax a bit. Clint and Laura have just completed a two room addition to their house, so Laura has been busy painting the new space. Mattie Jones came to spend time with Alivya one day last week, keeping an eye on the little one while Laura painted. Katie Bruce also came to visit one day while Laura was painting – sort of moral support, it sounds like. Aren't neighbors wonderful? Clint, Laura and Alivya spent the weekend in Keystone, celebrating Laura's birthday and enjoying a little rest and relaxation. Frank and Shirley Halligan have been staying close to home in this heat. Their daughter, Maggie, returned to her home in Texas Saturday. Monday, the Halligans attended Walter Van Tassel's funeral. Nancy Neuhauser enjoyed an extended visit from her daughter, Cindy, Denton, Texas, recently. Over the Fourth of July, Nancy and several family members were at the cabin in the Black Hills, celebrating Cindy's birthday. Nancy stayed at the cabin until Saturday, July 7. Last Tuesday, Nancy and her daughter, Cindy, traveled to Ellendale, N.D., to visit Nancy's niece. Last weekend, Nancy and other family members traveled to Billings to attend her granddaughter's wedding. Ray Neuhauser has been having problems with one of his knees, so he hasn't been doing much traveling. However, the sore knee doesn't keep him from his card playing groups! Hope the knee improves soon. When I talked to Ed Briggs Monday late afternoon, he said he thought his thermometer was about ready to break! Like everyone else in the community, he has been busy caring for cattle, fixing fence, checking water, etc. He also stays busy with county commission business. They are still working to make it possible to house a county employee in our area to maintain the our roads, which will be especially important once the school reopens this fall. Ed said the commission will have a budget meeting next week. The county, as most government entities, is working hard to find the funds necessary to take care of business. Chase and Kelly Briggs were in Pierre Saturday to spend time with

The Jones and Rounds families enjoyed supper together following the circus. Sunday, Max and Joyce traveled to Spearfish to attend an Eastern Star initiation there. They had

Those helping on a very, very hot day were Nina, Allison and Grace Pekron, Linda, Ben and Mark Stangle, Donna and Tina Staben and Jodi, Rachel and Sarah Parsons. Autumn and Kamri Parsons took swimming lessons in Philip last week, so Marcy and the kids spent most of the week with her parents, Jim and Betty Smith. A week ago Sunday, Dave and Tonya Berry took Kenneth and Doris Berry out to dinner in Kadoka. Lana Elshere and grandaughter, Grace, had a good time browsing through Wall Drug Saturday. It was too hot to be outside very long. Joan Hamill has been busy during the last couple of weeks with company.

supper with friends before returning home. (Two nights with no cooking – way to go, Joyce!) Lee and Mary Briggs enjoyed a visit from daughter Keva Joens and grandson Zane over the weekend. Keva and Zane came to the ranch Saturday evening after they both got off work. Sunday, Mary, Keva, Seth and Zane Joens, and Cattibrie Riggle went to Pierre to visit Grandma Lil Briggs. Unfortunately, Lil was not at home each time they stopped, but it is good to know that Lil is out and about! The group got their errands done then stopped at Steve and Dawn Hedman’s before they left town. Keva, Seth and Zane, returned to Spearfish Sunday evening. Mary said they should be wrapping up the spring wheat harvest Tuesday if it doesn’t rain – (What’s that? According to Mary.) Mary did say she drove through a very small shower on the way to town Tuesday morning – it dusted her vehicle off on one side. Ruth Neuhauser said she hasn't made any news this week, but she said it is hot and dry at Highmore – just like here. Her room at Highmore Health is comfortable, which is a blessing, but some parts of the facility get a little warm in this weather. She is looking forward to a visit next month from her grandson, Troy, and his family who live in Italy. It will be her first opportunity to meet great-grandson Aurelio – such a wonderful thing to look forward to! When Ruth and I were visiting about dealing with this heat, she said her mother used to put wet towels over the west windows of their home, so the breeze could blow through and cool the air in the house. My mother said her grandmother used to put jars of
milk in the spring near the Niobrara River to keep it cool. Our forefathers were made of pretty tough stuff! As I mentioned earlier in the news, we enjoyed a birthday celebration for my mother last weekend. Our daughters, Lori, Jennifer and Chelsea, were able to be there also, which was great. I also got to meet my great-nephew, Conlin Hanrahan, for the first time. Family is truly a blessing. Here at the ranch, the guys are busy checking cattle, water tanks, grass, etc. And of course we are always vigilant in case there is a fire. The grassland fire danger is extreme, and fighting fire in this heat would be hazardous to the firefighters also. Chauncey Jorgensen works at our place, and his parents live in the northwest part of the state. According to Chauncey, his parents were among those who received four and a half inches of rain in about two hours Monday night. Rain that comes that fast is pretty destructive also, but hopefully it filled dams, etc. This week, I am grateful for the rural water system. The dams in our area are drying up, and the cattle need lots of water during this type of weather. We are fortunate here to have spring fed water in many places, but many of our neighbors depend on the system for their household water as well as livestock water. Without the rural water system, the situation would be even more difficult than it already is. I hope you will go out and make this a wonderful week. Work smart, drink lots of water, and stay safe. And when you think of it, please pray for rain!

(continued from last week) I stopped in to see Gladys Smith this week. She had not been feeling too well, but she was asleep and I didn’t want to wake her. So I just left a note. While there I visited briefly with Dorothy Urban. She and Gladys are roommates. Guests at Bill and Jayne Gottsleben’s on the Fourth of July were Kieth and Deb Smith, Ross and Janice Williams, Dwight and Marie Slovek, Miles and Jessica Wheeler and Bob Thorson and friend, Jodi. They enjoyed three great games of croquet which ended in a tie with Bill winning the playoff. The rest of the day was spent enjoying great food and fellowship. A certain person said that they think Bill practices prior to the day he will be playing so there is no chance you can beat him. Well, someone else must have been practicing to end up in a tie with him! This was just a joke between sources of new’s items and me. Bill does a good job in doing whatever he is going to do. I was unable to reach Herb or Hazel Sieler. They must be gone a lot. Herb’s job adjusting crops takes him a distance away from home and if there are several jobs in one area they stay overnight there. Hazel usually goes along and if the have some spare time in between jobs, they might do some sightseeing. Hazel said that it is amazing what there is to see in South Dakota. Harvesting seems to be all done in this area. Todd O’Connor did a lot of the combining out this way. Some of the wheat didn’t yield as good and some did fair but the protein was 14 to 16 due to the dry weather. It seems to be a no yield crop year for the farmer. The corn was over knee high by the fourth and looking good both at Trevor Fitchs, here at home and at Bill Gottsleben’s just south of our place. Some say if they don’t get corn, they will make silage from it. I have a dog that I really appreciate called Dusty and he really looks after me. He will not let anything that could be harmful get near me. The other day, he was having a terrible fit barking, his way of letting me know that danger is near. I went to look and he had a large bull snake cornered, staying his distance. So I got my long handled ice scraper that I keep close for such things and went to take care of the varmint. He would come too close to me and Dusty was between us in an instant. I had to call him off so I could do away with the snake, which I did. I like to have him mind me, as it could be a rattler and he would get bit. But the way he flipped that bull snake, I wonder if he wouldn’t do the same with a rattler? He shook it till he snapped the head hard enough to kill it. I just don’t like to take the chance of him getting snake bit, so I want him to call off when I tell him to. Well, I left the snake there for awhile and later was going to take it out of the yard. Well, I need not have worried about that as a big hawk came swooping down and carried it away for his dinner. Dusty does the same thing when strangers come. He will stay between me and the stranger. He knows all our family and the neighbors and just wants them to pet him. He is eight years old and I worry that I will not have him many more years, as his breed, border collie, don’t live to be very old. You only get a few dogs like that in your life time. Now they say not to kill bull snakes but as far as snakes go, they startle me and I don’t want them in my basement. It is old and laid up rock of early years and they can get in there. When I have to go down there, he will come when I open the door and look down in there. But I use my long handled ice scraper and check out the steps anyway. The road that leads home, it seems, is dearer than the rest, for it is paved with fondest dreams of those I loved the best. It is the one road when weary and worn that I know waiting at the end I shall find peace and content. (this week’s news) On July 3, Loren and Rose Kiel decided to go pick up the decorations which they had put out on the graves at the Hilland Cemetery. As they left the cemetery, they called on Jack and Arlyce Griesel. Arlyce invited them to stay for noon dinner. Arlyce’s sister, Arlene, and her husband, Ken Everett, Mountain Home, Idaho, were also there. Their social time after dinner was abruptly interrupted when Truett Fitch knocked on the door to inform them of the fire near their shed in the pasture a short distance west of their house. Loren thought that he would be of little help so they left for home going past the old Pates place. They noted some changes. Kieth and Tucker Smith, as renters, had built some new fence along the road going west of the house. There was a big pile of old wooden posts in the yard. The gate was shut as cattle were being pastured there. The old house is partly gone and leaning as is the barn with one lean-to collapsed. That barn had been originally located south of the

Eggen place, now Tucker Smith’s pasture. It was the Frank Scott barn. Herb Pates moved it onto his place from the Martin Hannigan place about one and three-quarter miles west of its location today. The Hannigan homestead eventually became part of Pates’ pasture. Loren does not know when the barn was moved from those previous locations. Loren was told that Terkildsens plan to eventually complete the wrecking job and burn the remains of those buildings. As they continued west on the old dirt road, Loren and Rose noted that Fortunes have removed the Manahan house and also the house on the Rausch place. July 6, Loren and Rose Kiel drove to Brookings, to attend the wedding of Rose’s grand-nephew, Kevin Pates, and his bride, Courtney Trooien, at Lake Campbell Lutheran Church southwest of Brookings. It was an evening ceremony on Saturday, July 7. Kevin is the son of Mark and Phyllis Pates and is in partnership with his parents in their sheep farm operations. The wedding reception, dinner and dance were held at the convention center in a motel in Brookings. Loren and Rose and other out of town wedding guests spent a couple of nights at the motel. (Dan and Marsha Kiel from Indianapolis, Ind., were among the guests.) After attending worship services at Ascension Lutheran Church in Brookings the out of town family guests were invited to a noon-time dinner at the Pates farm. After watching the bride and groom open their gifts at their adjacent farm home, the Kiels headed towards home stopping overnight at a motel in Huron. They spent Sunday night visiting with their granddaughter, Kara Gutormson, who recently became a reporter for the Huron Plainsman Daily Newspaper. As Loren drove across the state, he noticed the fields, many wheat fields either harvested, being harvested or ready for harvest. For the most part, cornfields, soybeans, and other hay and forage crops looked good, not showing the stress of drought yet. Of course much of the hay was already in bales. Donna Newman and Roger Buhmann were busy last week. They decided to have a family reunion since they had not been together since 1985. The reunion was held at a campground in the Black Hills Sunday, July 1, through July 4. Attending were Erwin and Marilee Buhmann, their daughter, Patty, her husband and their four kids all from Rockford, Ill., Donnie and his daughter, Tarri, Carolina, Roger and Becky, Rapid City, Denny and Leslie and daughter from Louisiana, and Donna Newman and her family. A great time was enjoyed, bringing back memories and just catching up on things. After Donna Newman came home, Roger and Donna and some of the family went up to where Hank Pekron lived. This is where the Buhmann family lived when they first came to Philip. Larry Lewison called and reported that he and Sue were doing fine, but he did say that he is legally blind now and has to use a magnifying glass to read. His son, Loren, and wife and Larry’s daughter, Linda, live close and help them out as needed. He also said that his cancer is cured and that he had good reports and it’s not returned. People do get old, Larry is in his 70s now. It is funny how you run into people while doctoring. When I got my glasses last week, the girl who waited on me was Doris Carstensen’s daughter. I had not seen her since she was about 16 years old. She would be a cousin of mine. She said that her mother, Doris, and husband, George, are in bad health and that they don’t leave their house. Her younger brother who had brain cancer had a complete cure. He has a good job at the air base and has done very well for himself. Jim and Norma Oldenberg spent the Fourth of July with Norma’s family in Murdo. Otherwise, they have been staying home working and taking care of the yard. Gary Nixons are spending a few days in Belle Fourche this week visiting with family. Grasshoppers are really thick just south into Jackson County. They are bad at Newman’s and devoured everything at the place while they were gone for a few days. Sympathy is extended to the family of Walter Van Tassel who passed away this week. His funeral was held Monday, July 16. Walter was well known and respected in this area. He was one of the most honest men I knew. He would take a loss on a deal to make it good for a friend or a person so they could get what they needed to make it work for them. Kenneth would send me up to take seed up or get some and I would ask him how he wanted it done and he would say to do whatever Walter thinks, as he will do the best he can for you. And he always did. When Kenneth and Walter would get together to visit, exchanging stories you would hear them laughing and enjoying every moment of the visit. Walter knew his feed and seed business and kept up on the latest new seed that was out. He did a great service through the years for farmers in this area. Jesse and Maria (Evans) Heaton came home and had a birthday party last week for Marlin Evans and served Wisconsin wine and cheese along with other goodies for her 77th birthday. Shan Vander May and Alaetra Evans and other family and friends gathered for the celebration. There were 30 people who enjoyed the party. Marlin went down to Asta Amiotte’s and went to the Interior Day rodeo and fireworks on the Fourth of July. She went back
down to Interior for Asta’s birthday party on the 14th at the park in Interior celebrating her 70th. Jesse and Mariah returned home and were called back when Walter got ill. They planned to return back to Wisconsin late Monday after the services for Jesse’s grandpa, Walter. Gladys Smith has moved over to the nursing home side this last week. I have not been in to see her since she has moved but need to go in again soon. Herb and Hazel Sieler had company this last week. Hazel’s kids were here for a visit, John and Melisa Clarke and kids, Austin and Evan, Lee Summit, Mo. While they were here, they did some touring, went to a cave in the Black Hills. They said that the flood that had went through it had hurt the long crystals. They were not as long and pretty as had been in earlier years. They took in the fireworks at Philip, attended the Belle Fourche rodeo, went to Wall Drug, and toured the Badlands. They attended church in Philip and then
John and Melisa and kids left for home Sunday. Marvin, Vicki and Mary Eide attended the birthday supper for Rayler Fitch on his third birthday. Cliff and Rita Ramsey were also there. Other family members were there, but the Milesville News will probably have those from that area listed. Some people are having sick animals due to the drought and there are some diseases that often show up in a a drought year that don’t cause much damage in a good year. It seems to be bugs that are causing problems by biting the animal and making them sick. This sure has been a trying year for everyone and there doesn’t sound like there will be any relief coming soon. This has been a year when you hear about what troubles others are having. Pray for rain and help your neighbor who has troubles, if you can. And always thank God every day, as he still holds us in his hand and there is a reason for everything even if we are not able to see it now.
S.D. high marks for special education, Birth to Three
South Dakota has again received the highest rating possible under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act for fiscal year 2010. South Dakota is one of only 23 states or U.S. territories to meet the requirements and purposes of IDEA under both Parts B and C, according to the United States Department of Education. IDEA Part B monitors the effectiveness of special education services at the preschool and kindergarten through 12 levels, while Part C refers to the state’s Birth to Three program, which serves younger children and their families. IDEA requires each state to develop a state performance plan that evaluates its efforts to implement the requirements and purposes of IDEA, and describes how the state will improve its implementation. The Part B state performance plan includes baseline data, measurable and rigorous targets, and improvement activities for 20 indicators, such as graduation rate, participation and performance on assessments, and ensuring that complaints are resolved and hearings are adjudicated within required timelines. The Part C, or Birth to Three, state performance plan includes baseline data, measurable and rigorous targets, and improvement activities for 14 indicators, such as ensuring positive outcomes for infants and toddlers with disabilities, timely provision of services, and meeting evaluation timelines. Nebraska and Wyoming were also among the 23 states that met requirements under both parts of IDEA.
