Philip’s Mike West, above, emceed much of the discussion. Shown below, Sarah Jennings, state director for AARP, and Erik Gailowski, associate director, kept records that will be sent to Washington, D.C. Photos by Del Bartels From 1990 through 2011, there were 110 animals from Haakon County officially tested for rabies. Only nine of these animals tested positive – approximately eight percent. The last rabies positive animal was in 1999. There were no positives in 2000 or 2011. Last year, 2011, there were two Haakon County animals submitted for testing; neither were rabid. So far this year, there have been three confirmed rabid animals from Haakon County. In April a skunk was confirmed, in May a cow tested positive, and in June another cow was confirmed as being rabid. This is according to information supplied by Lon Kightlinger, state epidemiologist for the South Dakota Department of Health. He said that rabies is a fatal disease transfered by a bite, or by a scratch that includes saliva from the infected animal. There are only two facilities in South Dakota that test for rabies, the public health laboratory in Pierre and the animal veterinary diagnostic lab at South Dakota State University in Brookings. If the head of the animal suspected of having rabies is delivered to the public health lab in the morning, results can be determined before the end of the day. “There’s not that much rush. Though rabies can be fatal, it is a slow acting virus,” said Kightlinger. “It’s an urgency, but something you can manage.” Kightlinger said that, ideally, the test should be conducted within 10 days. An animal, such as a dog or cat, suspected of having rabies is often quarantined for 10 days while authorities watch for common rabies symptoms such as change in behavior, flopping around or “acting crazy.” Jim Stangle is the veterinarian based out of Milesville. “If you see a suspect wild animal, don’t ask

Philip hosts open conversation on future of Social Security, health
by Del Bartels A statewide, county-by-county conversation about strengthening health and retirement security called “You've Earned a Say” was held by AARP South Dakota in Philip, Thursday morning, June 14, at Pizza Etc. Haakon County was the 27th session out of all 66 South Dakota counties. “We always know something good is going on in Philip,” said Sarah Jennings, director for AARP SD, referring to the meetings, projects and activities done by the local AARP, headed by Mike and Marcia West. The goal of the discussions is to take the future of Medicare and Social Security out from behind closed doors in Washington and make South Dakotans a part of the discussion about the future of these programs. The conversation was open to the public, not only AARP members. When asked the biggest challenges facing Medicare, individuals mentioned rising health care costs, not enough funding to pay future benefits, fewer workers paying into the system, a growing senior population and fraud. Mike West said, “Once someone turns in a claim, there has to be some kind of check to make sure that claim actually happened.” Don Ferguson said, “If you go into a store in Rapid City and buy something, the know everything about you. And the government doesn’t know this (how to check on fraud)?” Bob McDaniels voiced his negative opinion about the current taxing system, “but we are talking about Social Security here. It has to be strengthened for my children and grandchildren.” Ferguson voiced his concern about possibly raising the age for retirement and for Social Security. “Some people who work manual labor, they can’t do that,” he said. If people retire later, especially after working hard, “then they don’t live as long,” Ferguson said about enjoying retirement. Carol _______ said, “Every time they do give us a cost of living raise, immediately the premiums

questions, just shoot it,” said Stangle. “If you kill a suspect animal, do not shoot it in the head. If you can’t get hold of a vet, it has to be refrigerated until you do.” He said that testing by the state lab is free if there is human exposure. Stangle noted, “We have more human exposure with cattle. It’s that you just don’t think of rabies with cattle. Because one of the symptoms of rabies is choke, you think there is something in the cow’s throat or mouth. The rancher catches the cow and finds nothing, then thinks of rabies.” If a human has been confirmed to having been exposed to rabies, the old cure required a medical regimen of a dozen painful shots in the abdomen, dragged out over several weeks. Today, only five shots are required. The first is a simple immunoglobulin shot, which the amount is determined by the patient’s weight, and given at the penetration site of the infection. The next four shots are given in the arm over the next two week period. “If you’ve ever gotten a flu shot, its like that. It doesn’t hurt any more,” said Kightlinger. “It’s going to cost you over $1,000.” Up to about five years ago, rabies was always fatal. Now it does not have to be, “if you do super heroic therapy, but generally people do not survive rabies,” said Kightlinger. “We haven’t had a fatal case of rabies in humans in 42 years (when specific diagnostic records began being kept). We must be doing something right.” Stangle added, “The primary reason for vaccinating your pets is they provide a barrier between wild animals and you.” He said that dogs usually become infected by skunks and cats usually by bats. Kightlinger said that “skunks are the reservoir of rabies in South Dakota.” Skunks seem to carry rabies a little longer, and they give it to their offspring which can pass it on before their deaths. A rabid skunk may come out in the daylight, will become very aggressive and “act crazy.” Sometimes an attacking skunk has to be hatcheted off of the human being attacked. Earlier this summer, Haakon County resident George Gittings experienced an encounter with a skunk that was later confirmed to be infected with rabies. He said that he was at a fence gate when the skunk surprised him and got hold of the pants leg of his bibbed coveralls. “I couldn’t get him off. I kicked him and stepped on his tail. He had a hold as far as he could reach. I danced a good diddy for about five minutes,” said Gittings. Finally dragging the attacking skunk over to the pickup, Gittings used a wire stretcher to kill the skunk. Amazingly, Gittings was not bitten or even scratched. “If it’d been regular overalls, he would have gotten through to me.” Because of the confirmation of rabies, Gittings said that his livestock were then quarantined and he could not sell any for a month’s time. Gittings told of a neighbor who discovered that he had a rabid calf. The calf’s head was sent in for testing and the results were positive. The neighbor, who had worked with the calf along with his other livestock, decided, rather than take a chance, to go through with the rabies regimen of shots. Kightlinger said his department does not take rabies lightly. In harder to determine cases, such as a child waking up with a dead bat nearby and the bat is disposed of before testing, then the decision about the treatment regimen is made between the physician and the patient. In the case of an infected cow, where cow slobber has gotten on the rancher but no cuts were present, then taking the shot regimen is up to the rancher. “Some people can’t handle the risk and are so scared they take the shots,” said Kightlinger.
go up and everything else. I actually go in the hole when they increase my Social Security.” Concerning the drain on America’s Social Security, Don Olivier said, “No person who is not a citizen should be able to draw Social Security.” All comments, though not the specific speakers, were recorded by Jennings and AARP Associate State Director Erik Gailowski. The information will be sent into Washington. “They’ve already received about half a million copies of our responses,” said Jennings.” The final discussion session will be at the South Dakota State Fair, August 30. •In South Dakota, 137,314 peo-

ple rely on Medicare for their health coverage, and 153,508 people receive Social Security benefits. •The average monthly Social Security benefit for individuals in South Dakota is a little more than $1,000. •Almost 19 percent of South Dakotans receiving Social Security rely on the benefit for 90 percent or more of their retirement income, while 45.4 percent rely on Social security for 50 percent or more of their retirement income. "These sessions are truly listening sessions," said Jennings. “The debate over how to protect and strengthen Medicare and Social can’t be done in secret. South Dakotans have worked too hard to let the next president and congress make decisions about the future of Medicare and Social Security without hearing from the people who rely on these programs for their health and financial security in retirement.” “You’ve Earned a Say” conversations in South Dakota are part of a broader conversations happening in all 50 states.

Midland’s Stroppel Inn and Spa new management/operation
by Del Bartels The management and operation of the Stroppel Inn in Midland has been taken over by Kathy Jensen. The message that Jensen is stressing is everything is still open and going. It is still operating as a hotel and a hot mineral bath spa, and has the same phone number of 843-2802. The business’s website, www.stroppelinn.com, still announces it as the “Stroppel Inn – home of the hot mineral baths, Midlands’s premier hotel and spa.” Jensen’s interest in the business came through her other enterprise, the Bio-shi Institute. “It’s a family owned business, and we have an accredited college of massage therapy – mind and body connection massage therapy,” said Jensen. “Now it’s all going to be integrated,” said Cory Ruth, son-in-law and partner. “We’re in this transition state. We want people to be here and watch as we make changes. We want to do a little bit of renovation,” said Ruth. He added, “Just a little bit of work – clean up the plunges, window work – make it so it can take a little more use.” A third partner is Robin Freeman. Jensen said, “It’s a natural resource; the mineral content and the healing of the water.” She said that a Stroppel Inn brochure given to her a long time ago kept popping up in different drawers and cupboards. She eventually visited Midland, and that first visit grew to be four or five days. Later, she brought educational class students for training and working with hydrotherapy. “It was just what I was supposed to do. I was just trusting what needs to happen,” said Jensen. Now operating the inn, she said, “We have people calling asking for massage therapy with the baths, we can provide that.” Jensen said, “That’s probably one of the attractions; it feels like family. We want people to have that feeling when they get here.” As of the first of June, the previous managers, Rueben, Jr. and Pat Vollmer are living their dream. “We’ve been looking to go do something else, to move to a ranch just north of Midland,” said Vollmer. “We’ll be country folk. We’ve been running cows for quite a while. The wife and I and our youngest son run the operation. She will still have a beauty shop; couple of grand kids; youngest son getting married – it’s time we free ourselves up a little bit. Running a hotel is 24/7.” According to Vollmer, when the new managers/operators called and inquired, the Vollmers already had leaving the responsibility in mind. “They’re pretty excited about taking over, and the water is a big part of the therapy. I anticipate things to grow. It’s a soft water mineral well. This one comes out at 119 degrees. It has a lot of healing factors with it,” said Vollmer. “There’s parts of it we’ll miss. We’ve met some great people. With the baths, there’s time when eight to 10 to 12 people will show up. Some of the athletes come; (then) they come back the next week. We’ve had a lot of people say Midland is a gold mine, we just have to know how to market it. Our number-one thing is we want to see it continue,” said Vollmer. The three new managers/operators “came up and got, shall we say, in tune with the operation a bit,” said Vollmer. “This lady and this party is the niche we need. We’re pretty excited.” The website sums up the atmosphere the new managers/operators wish to continue. “If you're looking for charming, restful hotel accommodations in the Dakotas, contact us today at Stroppel Inn. Come visit us today and enjoy a truly pleasurable sojourn in the country. “We offer one of the most distinctive inn experiences in the region. You'll appreciate our country quiet atmosphere. When you come to stay with us, we guarantee we'll do everything we can to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.”
Sun safety at the pool
Midwest Cooperative in Philip had two 100-ton feed ingredient bins installed near its grain elevators, Friday, June 29. Shown is the first being set up. “This will allow us to bring in some additional feed ingredients for us to serve our producers,” said Philip site manager Jay Baxter. “The more storage we get, the more we can look for more cost efficient ways to feed cattle.” Photo by Del Bartels
During Monday, June 18, everyone at the Philip swimming pool was offered a sun safety demonstration. There were over 150 snowcones given out, and there were games, crafts and prizes. A lesson on the importance of sunscreen was given by Tandis Hoffman and Kim Livingston. On Wednesday, June 20, they also hosted a social breakfast in the Philip Nursing Home dining room. They discussed their projects in the Philip area during their Rural Experiences for Health Professions Students. The goal of REHPS is to increase the number of health professionals in the state’s rural areas. The program encourages the building of relationships between medical students and rural communities. Hoffman and Livingston learned from local doctors Dave Holman and Ceon Klopper, and physician assistants Terry Henrie, Janell Gerberding and Dave Webb. They visited the Philip Nursing Home, Silverleaf, Community Health, KGFX Radio, Kadoka Clinic and the various aspects of Philip Health Services, Inc. Courtesy photos

No affect on S.D. from Arizona immigration case
Attorney General Marty J. Jackley has announced that the United States Supreme Court’s ruling striking provisions of the Arizona Immigration Law does not affect existing South Dakota law or enforcement efforts. “While a state should be able to extend its enforcement efforts when federal authorities fail to respond, the Supreme Court has fortunately rejected the federal government’s dangerous position ‘that the power to regulate immigration is vested exclusively in the federal government,’ ” stated Jackley. “South Dakota presently enjoys and will strive to continue our tradition of cooperative immigration enforcement with our local federal partners, which is supported by the language and directive of today’s Arizona decision.” In 2010, the federal government filed suit challenging Arizona’s new law governing state immigration enforcement. South Dakota joined several states in a capacity as friend of the court, primarily to protect existing South Dakota cooperative law enforcement efforts to ensure public safety, and also to support a state extending its enforcement efforts when federal authorities fail to appropriately respond.

Face your fear
As I was concluding a conference session, an attendee asked me how I got into the business of being a motivational speaker. “Good question,” I responded. I went on to say that I looked under the bed. It all began when I was about five years old, and I was so afraid of what lived under my bed. I was paralyzed in fear. Quite awhile later, I finally got up the courage to look under my bed, and do you know what I found? Nothing. There were no monsters! My fear was false, not true at all. Years later, I realized how much my belief in the reality of those under-the-bed monsters had affected my attitudes. I was full of dread of what might happen to me, until I discovered that when I peeked under the bed, and found nothing at all, that I was free of the fear. I knew that fear could hold me back from the success I desired in my life, so I started telling myself every day, “Face your fear, and the death of fear is certain.” I also began to tell myself I could do anything I put my mind to. I then set out on a life-long mission of helping others overcome their fears by facing them. Of course, make believe monsters are not all we fear in life. There’s the fear of the unknown, the fear of failure, the fear of change, the fear of what people may think of you, the fear of what people may say about you, the fear of success, the fear of lack of control, the fear that you may not know what to do. Obviously, the list could go on and on. Understand that any one of these fears, or others you may think of, has the capability of paralyzing a person, causing them to be unable to move forward. Fear is a negative emotion having tremendous control over us, that can range from experiencing apprehension, to being overly anxious, to feeling down right terrified of someone or something. The truth about a lot of our fears is that they very rarely come true. Simply put, fear is very often False Evidence Appearing Real Personally, at one time or another, I have struggled with all of these types of fear in my life and I have overcome them simply by facing them head on. It has not always been easy, and has always required that I persevere. Sometimes the old fears I previously faced and conquered have even flared up again, and I have had to deal with them again. Being bold and courageous does not come easily, but the more I face my fears, the more courage I have. If you are struggling with fear, I encourage you to start talking to yourself in a most forceful manner regarding the action steps you must and will take to shift your thinking about these fears. Then, do the thing you have feared to do. What's the worst thing that could happen? Is the worst case scenario really worse than going through life being afraid? Probably not. In order to truly face your fear, you must really get to know it. Identify the basis of your fear; is it based on the truth, a lie, a feeling or a past experience? Then remind yourself that fear is causing your mind to work in reverse, so the sooner you can get your mind moving in a more forward direction, the better. Be willing to take a risk, face your fear by hitting it head on. For instance, if you are afraid to speak in front of people, than look for opportunities to get up in front of others. The next time someone asks you to address a group, say you will, instead of just making excuses. Sure it will be tough, but remember that your benefit will be greater confidence and personal growth. Every time you face your fear, your fear level decreases, until it is no longer a thing that you fear. After you've conquered one fear, then hit the next one that is holding you back. You'll quickly discover that facing your fears will build your confidence. So get your head on straight today! So, what is it that you think is lurking under your bed, and holding you back from the success you desire? Go ahead and take a look to find out. Take that step of faith. I guarantee that when you face your fear, the death of fear is certain!

Dote responsibly ... by Del Bartels
I once excelled at so many things – basketball, debate, sharpshooting – now I drop basketballs easier than bounce them, lose arguments with myself, and haven’t seen anything but a deer’s running rump for several hunting seasons. I am trying to hold on to the memory of my exceptional glory by living vicariously through my kids. You may think that comes with old age, but, first, you have to have some years in order to have kids, and I hear that you have to have some more years to have grandkids. By then, you’re worn out. I cheer on the Red Sox because I still want to be on the winning side, even if my own side now rolls clear around to my front. I cheer on Dale Earnhardt, Jr., though the local cop wants to take away my license because my slow driving is a traffic hazard. I cheer on the high school basketball team, because I used to be young and athletic once ... I think. I cheer on my children, because I love them and it’s the right thing to do, but also because what talents and dedication they display are gotten from me. Hey, you believe what you want to and I’ll believe my truth. I used to be able to outrun my son. He started becoming more of a challenge when the diapers no longer slowed him down. Now I wear a face mask while jogging so his dust doesn’t sting so much. My superior mental ability still allows me to beat my children at cards and board games. I was smoking them at Hearts, mostly because they mistakenly thought we were playing Wist. They finally admitted defeat when I began decimating them and hogging the cards at 52-Card Pickup. My son won’t play scrabble with me anymore because of my renowned vocabulary, even if the dictionary labels most of my words as “archaic usage.” I have taught him to throw the ol’ pigskin and the ol’ rawhide, but he wants to throw footballs and baseballs instead. When I was teaching him to bat, he admitted I have the most devastating drop ball he has ever seen. We like to hike. The 50-mile, full backpack, double-time fun times of my youth have been scaled way back for him to under 20 miles. He insists that we even carry water bottles, something about that water helps quiet my enthusiastic wheezing. We enjoy the wildlife; he says they come out of hiding to see why I’m crawling on the ground. He should laugh, he gets to sleep while I drive home (and avoid the local cop). Soon he will be asking me to teach him to drive. He might as well learn from the best. Many years ago I taught him to ride a bicycle. We should go riding together again, him on his Schwinn and me on my Harley-Davidson. We already have plans to go camping. I used to take nothing but a pocket knife, but a compromise for his sake might include a reservation at a Hilton with a swimming pool. I once was the best. Now my son can learn from me so one day he can take over. Such perfection will probably be impossible, but I will always cheer him on in his endeavor to be as excellent as his father.

2012 Farm Bill passes United States Senate
The Senate completed work on the Agriculture Reform, Food and Jobs Act of 2012 (Farm Bill), July 21, and passed the measure by a 64-35 vote. As a member of the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry, Senator John Thune (R-SD) helped draft a farm bill that reforms or eliminates current programs. The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) projects this bill will provide a savings of over $23.6 billion over the next 10 years compared to current policy. “Today’s Senate vote to pass a reform focused farm bill is an important victory for America’s farmers and consumers,” said Thune. “This bill exceeds our $23 billion savings goal under last year’s Budget Control Act, provides a strong safety net for farmers and ranchers only when it is needed, and consolidates and makes common-sense improvements to conservation programs.” Thune played a key role in designing the Commodity Title of the bill which eliminates the Direct and Counter-cyclical payment programs and the Average Crop Revenue Election (ACRE) program at a savings of over $50 billion and replaces them with a new Average Risk Coverage (ARC) program (at a cost of $28.9 billion). The ARC program payments may not exceed $50,000 per entity, or $100,000 for a husband and wife operation. The Commodity Title ARC program was created using the Aggregate Revenue and Risk Management (ARRM) program Senator Thune introduced late last year and which was scored by CBO as saving more than $20 billion over 10 years. A Thune amendment resulted in a U.S. Department of Agriculture study that must be completed before a $750,000 average adjusted gross income (AGI) limitation for producers who purchase crop insurance could become effective – largely due to concerns that such a limitation would change the insurance risk pool and negatively impact producers who have an AGI below $750,000. The bill would combine the current 23 conservation programs into 13 and extend the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) through 2017. The CRP enrollment cap will be reduced to 25 million acres by 2017. Current crop insurance policy encourages the conversion of native sod and grassland to commodity crop production. A Thune amendment was accepted which will reduce the amount of crop insurance premium assistance for four years on crops grown on native sod and longstanding grasslands and reduce indemnity levels to match the productivity of the insured land, in order to discourage abuse and conversion of grasslands to cropland for crop insurance benefits. This will save nearly $200 million over 10 years. Based on a bill Thune introduced to address the pine beetle infestation, language was included in the Forestry Title that requires the Secretary of Agriculture to designate at least one national forest in each state within 60 days of enactment of this bill as a special treatment area based on declining forest health (such as the pine beetle epidemic in the Black Hills) if requested by the governor of the state. The Senate agreed to an amendment by Senator Mark Udall (D-CO), cosponsored by Thune, to authorize $200 million for each Fiscal Year 2013 through 2017 for this provision. The 2008 Farm Bill Authorization expires on September 30, 2012 and unless President Obama signs a new farm bill into law, or if the current farm bill is not extended by that date, the 1949 Act would go into effect. U.S. Senator Tim Johnson (DSD) said, “The Senate has done its work. The House Agriculture Committee needs to move a farm bill so that we can give our producers certainty. Agriculture is South Dakota’s number one industry and our state’s biggest economic driver. It generates over $20 billion annually in economic activity in our state. The Senate bill takes several steps to ensure the continued integrity of our farm programs. We eliminate direct payments and establish a new Agriculture Risk Coverage (ARC) program that will help address losses not covered by crop insurance. At the same time, we maintain a strong crop insurance program, which producers have told me time and time again is the most critical risk management tool. The underlying bill contains a cap of $50,000 on the new ARC program, and we passed Senator Grassley and my amendment with overwhelming support to establish a cap on marketing loan gains. The bill also takes steps to close loopholes which have allowed nonfarmers to receive payments. The Farm Bill includes several provisions Johnson worked with colleagues to make sure were included in a final version, including: •Strong Payment Limits – The bill includes the Grassley/Johnson $250,000 total cap – Senators Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Johnson offered an amendment to cap marketing loan gains at $75,000 (doubled if a spouse is involved in the operation). The amendment passed 75-24. The final bill now includes a $250,000 cap, as has been included in legislation that Grassley and Johnson offered earlier this year. •Mandatory Rural Development Funding – Johnson cosponsored an amendment to provide $150 million in mandatory funding for a variety of USDA programs: $50 million for the Value-Added Producer Grant Program; $50 million for the water and wastewater backlog; $15 million for the Rural Micro-entrepreneur Assistance Program; and $35 million for the Beginning Farmer and Rancher Development Program. The amendment passed 55-44. •Pine Beetle Funding – The Senate bill provides for the designation of treatment areas on national forests experiencing declining forest health from insect of disease infestation, including the mountain pine beetle. Treatments on designated areas could be carried out with expedited processes in accordance with the Healthy Forest Restoration Act. Johnson and Thune cosponsored an amendment to increase authorized funding for such treatments from $100 million to $200 million. The amendment passed 77-22. •Rural Housing Fix – Some communities may become ineligible for USDA Rural Housing Service programs on October 1. Johnson cosponsored an amendment to extend eligibility for existing communities until completion of the next census. The amendment, passed by voice vote, maintains a strong crop insurance program, eliminates direct payments,and closes loopholes – the bill includes language to ensure that actual farmers receive payments.

Extension News
*Correction from last weeks’ column As anyone who has followed the SDSU Extension re-organization knows, the plan for the new SDSU Extension system was unveiled in April, 2011, not 2012 as stated in last weeks’ column. Sorry for the error. ***** 2012 Pesticide Container Recycle Collections Pesticide container recycling collections across South Dakota will begin in the middle of July. Dates, times and locations of the collection sites can be found on the SD Dept of Ag, “Agricultural Services” website: http://sdda.sd.gov/ Ag_Services/. Under “Agronomy Services Programs,” click “Container Recycling & Waste Pesticide Collection Program,” and scroll down to “2012 Pesticide Container Recycling Collection Schedule.” Immediately below that is a link to a version of the schedule containing links to a map of each collection site. The website contains good information on pesticide container disposal and recycling, as well as information on the waste (unusable) pesticide collection program. ***** Oil Spills and Farms: Protecting Your Business Farms now have less than one year to prepare or amend and implement their Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure (SPCC) Plans. The compliance date for farms is May 10, 2013. You need an SPCC plan if: an oil spill from your farm could reach water and you store oil (diesel, gasoline, hydraulic oil, lube oil, crop oil or vegetable oil, etc. in aboveground quantities of more than 1,320 gallons, or completely buried tanks of more than 42,000 gallons. For more information or to download an SPCC plan template, visit: http://www.epa.gov /oem/content/spcc/spcc_ag.htm. ***** Livestock Water Testing Just to remind producers that all of the regional extension centers and many county4-H offices have handheld electrical conductivity meters and welcome samples. These meters provide an instant analysis of total salt content that might cause problems for livestock drinking the water, and at no cost to the producer. Rural water and pipelines have reduced the dependence on water in stock dams for many producers, but if you rely on stock dams, testing the water will help avoid performance and health problems. Elevated salt levels may suggest that producers should submit a sample to a laboratory for a more detailed analysis, which can determine the makeup of the salts, and the sulfate portion of the total salt content, which can cause specific problems such as polio.

We continued his research into which resident prefers which tractor, from old days on the farm or ranch. M.R. and I sat with Thelma Frame and she kindly shared a few highlights of her life story. She grew up near Faith and graduated from high school there. She attended Spearfish Teacher’s College and taught school for two and a half years. She married Jim Frame, who grew up on Rattlesnake Creek, only 12 miles away. This was in 1941 and the marriage lasted 64 years and three days. They had three sons, one who lives at Whitewood and works on transmissions, one lives on the East Coast and another on the West Coast. They will all be here in July. Thelma remembers tractors,

especially Farmalls and Caterpillars, as they built dams and dugouts. Irene McKnight brought over a list of tractors for M.R. and a quote: “Ford 88000, John Deere 2950 and 2040, and New Holland 7V145. Her husband, Royal McKnight also did dirt work building dams and leveling land. Royal and his brother, Arthur, also ran sheep near Albion, Mont. M.R. and I related to the dirt work, as my father-in-law, Ralph Hansen, of near Philip, and his sons, Bob, (Russell) Cecil, Virgil, Tody (Ralph Jr.), Dean who was called Deano, Kenneth and Keith who were twins, Dale and Philip, built dams all over Haakon County. They used Caterpillars. Philip, being the youngest, usually stayed home and ran the ranch. My husband, Virgil Hansen, had a little Farmall tractor to dig post holes with. When he got out of the Army, he developed a sign business. Some of the first signs were on three boards and were mounted on two posts. He would set the signs up beside the highway. Our boys, Wayne, M.R., Leslie, Frank, David, and Hans, helped as soon as they were big enough. Age five or six, to hear them tell it! Over the weekend, Irene McKnight and Gloria Crumet went to a big church picnic at Sturgis. There they met acquaintances from long ago. “Kids” who had been in Sunday school with Gloria. The only mail I received Saturday was Sheridan’s makeup catalog. It is said that the worse times are, the more people turn to cosmetics and alcohol. The difference is that alcohol only deadens the misery for a little while, while the

You have to pull off Highway 14 just west of Philip to get a good view of Bill and Shirley Buls’ home. Dark red, purple and green colored plants in amongst the rock makes for a very eye-catching garden. Photo by Nancy Haigh cosmetics lift one’s spirits everyday. When you put on your pink cheeks and your eye liner, it make you feel special and then with a smile, you meet other smiles. You might enjoy this link to kaleidoscope. I like it over and over: http://inoyan.narod.nu/kaleidoscope.surf. It was sent to me by my nephew, Leonard Meyer, Greenfield, Ind. Sunday, I phoned my son, Hans P. Hansen, at Spruce House, 2535 Brady Drive, Colorado Springs, Colo. 80917. But Hans was gone to church. I left a message that I wanted to tell Hans thank you for his hand-painted birthday card that had a bizzy, buzzy bee on it. It said, “Hey, I’m bizzy, I’m 93.” And I wanted to tell him that the kalanchoe he sent for Mother’s Day is doing fine. I walked around outside of Somerset Court castle and saw that the scrubby ash tree on the south side in the undeveloped area, that has been trying to die for two years, is now coming up in a pretty green bush. And there was purple alfalfa in bloom and lawn clover, and dandelions and creeping jinny. Sunday, June 24, Rev. Richardson spoke on in the beginning. He quoted the Bible and urged us to read and believe. Mrs. Richardson sang “How Great Thou Art” in her rich contralto. Thank you both and thank you to Jack Humke for playing hymns for singing. Happy birthday to Larry Solano, June 25. June 25, at Somerset Court, we had the fun activity of Wheel of Fortune. Our phrase puzzle was the soft sand under your feet. Before and after puzzle was paper or plastic surgeon, Rhyme time be there or be square. Thanks, Shawn and Sandy. Edna Wulff had company June 25, her friend, Berniece Buum, and great-granddaughter, Ella Peterson, Rapid City. Monday, June 25, Irene Cox had a visitor, Kara Parsons, Milesville. The Somerset Court Monday movie was Fried Green Tomatoes. Most of us had seen it years back and were glad to see it again. I loved the old backwoods setting with little, old run-abouts and pickups. I liked the performance of Jessica Tandy and the woman who decided to take charge of her life. I liked the reference to a makeup company and we weren’t sorry to learn that Frank Bennett was done in, “The secrets in the sauce!” Thank you to David K. Hansen for your great email about old times and new. He had an opportunity to fix a wheel bearing. Janet then drove the vehicle on a trip to Missouri. She checked the temperature of the wheel bearing after 100 miles with their remote-sensing thermometer and found it cool. Thank you to my granddaughter and family, Gwenn and Gary Morgan, Sarah, Kelsie and Tyler, for your tender birthday card and beautiful gifts. Thank you to Al Vogan who sends the Imprimus leaflet from Hillsdale Mich. College. The essay in this issue is about the ill effects of generous student loans. At Somerset Court, be sure to look in the photo album on the coffee table by the fireplace for new photos of Somerset Court residents. Tuesday, June 26, at Somerset Court, we had morning exercises. Then some played rumi-cube. Vivian has a new game called quiddler which will take some getting used to. Tuesday was also the birthday bash for Somerset Court residents whose birthdays are in June. Edna Mae Moss, June 7, Marilyn Butts, June 11, Phyllis Capeheart, June 15, Virginia Gray, June 20, Vivian Hansen, June 21, and Larry Solano, June 25. Don Stensgaard led us in singing happy birthday, God bless you. The kitchen staff baker, P.J. made a pretty white cake with chocolate and pink frosting. The cake was served with coffee and vanilla ice cream. Thank you all for the nice party. Edna Mae Moss told me that she was from Houston. Her husband had been from Owanka, and had gone to Rapid City’s School of Mines. He became an engineer and took a job in Houston. He loved Houston and they spent many years there. Last week, my granddaughter, Sheridan Hansen, had a cosmetic party at her mother’s home in Philip. Guests there included Jenna Deuchar Finn, Shannon Jindra who moved from Philip to Hermosa, Kay Ainslie, Sharon Coyle, Shirley Dennis, Shirley Chin, and Donna Baye. Donna is also a cosmetic consultant. Shannon also sells cosmetics and purses. Tuesday, June 26, Sheridan Hansen and children, Tiger, four, and Cecelia, almost two, came to visit at Somerset Court. We walked laps and Cecelia pushed the doll buggy from Grandma’s Attic all around the lap and Tiger and I rolled pool balls by hand. Gwynn Hansen also came for lunch and later took me to a cosmetic party. Sheridan could use us a models to show her makeup. Somerset Court resident, Pat Staley, was visited by her sister, Kathryn Dennis. Kathryn has written a book entitled “And Then We Danced.” She said she will bring a copy for Somerset Court library. Thank you, Kathryn. The book has an attractive cover with a pair of dancers and inside the back cover is a silhouette of cowboys sitting on a pole corral. The book is written about the area around Newell. Wednesday, June 27, we had the annual Somerset Court auction sale. Our director was our auctioneer. Thanks Ryan and thanks to all of our activity directors and others who donate items, such as Sandy with two dozen cookies and Susan who will take a resident to a Sunday movie downtown. Residents spend all the Somerset bucks that they (we) have saved over the year. Things bring a good price, like an overnight in a Somerset guests suite, at $55,000 or 60,000. A basket of fruit, $41,000. A lap robe from the Somerset quilters was around $40,000. Early in the sale, Phillie Johnson bought two excellent cushions for $8,000, but then things heated up. Marilyn Oyler ended up with the quilter’s full-size quilt. Wednesday, we had an elegant dessert made with Jeri Deschamp’s recipe, pineapple fluff. At Somerset Court, dessert portions are always generous. Words with Z: zek, zein, zep, zeta, zill, ziti, zizith, zona, zoon. All these words are found in the scrabble book. And words with X: xenia, xeric, xerus, xi, xu, xylyl. Words with Q: qadi, qaid, qanat, qat, qi, qoph, quasi.

Veterans driver’s licenses
South Dakota’s Departments of Public Safety and Veterans Affairs remind military veterans that a new law taking effect July 1 allows them to have a veteran designation on their state-issued driver’s license. The 2012 Legislature passed the law, which gives honorably discharged veterans the option of adding the word “veteran’’ to the front of their South Dakota driver’s license. Including that designation on the driver’s license will make it easier for those who have served in the military to verify their veteran status. “South Dakota is home to over 74,000 veterans. The launch of this new ‘veteran’ identification will provide a convenient identification for veterans,” said Steve Harding, deputy secretary for the South Dakota Department of Veterans Affairs. “This initiative is a perfect example of state agencies working together.” Veterans who wish to add the designation to their driver’s license or non-driver identification card may visit any South Dakota driver’s license office. They will need to present their DD-214, which shows their honorable discharge status from active duty or present a certificate signed by a county veterans service officer verifying their status. The fee for a duplicate license is $10 and the fee for a license renewal is $20. Veterans will need to provide the other documents required of any applicant for a South Dakota driver’s license. Those documents may be viewed at http://dps.sd.gov/licensing/driver_licensing/obtain_a_l icense.aspx. For assistance or more information, contact your respective county veterans service officer or call the South Dakota Department of Veterans Affairs at 773-3269.

I would like to start my new’s week with stories from Kenneth’s history. One of these is true. It is about a man who was well thought of in this area. In later years he hung out in town at Pop Pohle’s feed and seed store, along with other old-timers like Al Knutson. When we were first married and for several years following, Kenneth would go to Pop Pohle’s and visit while he waited for me to finish my shopping. This was the place where most of the country men gathered to talk over the latest happenings. Rudolph E. Tungland, he homesteaded a mile northeast of the Alfalfa School on 2-18-18 east near the Ted Knutson place. We all called him Rudy. He was the greatuncle of John and Rod Knutson. Kenneth was about 13 or 14 years old and was out riding his horse. He rode by the old vacant Blair place east about two and a half miles from here. For some reason, he decided to look in the old barn and tied up in there was a team of horses. Of course, he defiantly knew the horses as no other team in the country were as good as these were. They were Belgiums and they would bring good money in those days. Kenneth came on home and asked his dad what Rudy’s horses would be doing tied up in the Blair barn. His dad asked him if he was sure they were Rudy’s and be determined, he told him he was sure. Tom Eide loaded up Kenneth in the car and they went over to Rudy’s and told him what Kenneth had seen. Rudy told them that his team was out in the pasture. Tom was not satisfied and he asked him if they could go out and see for sure that the team was in the pasture. So they drove out there and the team was nowhere to be found. So then they drove over to the Blair barn and Rudy looked in and said, “By gingery, (his favorite saying) those are my horses. He went into the barn and untied them from the stall and started leading them the six miles home. Kenneth said that made his day. Rustling still goes on today and people get caught. At that time, they knew who did it but did not turn them in as it would have been hard on a good neighbor and this neighbor had also married into the family. Shortly after this, he did leave the country. I have been busy these last few weeks, eating out with family while the granddaughters were home at Marvin and Vicki’s for the summer visiting. And they invited me to have lunch and dinner with them. This last Wednesday, I was invited to have lunch with Rev. Russell and Mary Pierce in downtown Philip, along with Alice Brooks, Gene and Doris Daniel, Cliff and Rita Ramsey, Phyllis Hajeck, Kay Ainslie, and Debbie Hansen. It was so nice to see Pierces again. They live at Yankton and are staying with Russell's sister, June, in Murdo. June was driving them to a family reunion over this coming weekend. I believe it was to be held in Montana, a trip of 600 miles from here. Russell has a spring in his step and he even ran a little to and fro to get us all organized for lunch. Rev. Pierce was a good minister while here at the United Church. He left here and went to the be pastor of the Methodist church in Pierre for a few years. Their son, Tim, was married at Pierre while they were there. I was able to attend his wedding. They were gone from Pierre before their son, Kenneth, was married. They are a plus in our lives and it is a pleasure to know them and enjoy their friendship. Rev. Pierce’s family were long-time residents of Philip and they had the grain elevator here for several years while Russell was growing up. They left here and moved to Murdo where Russell finished high school. Marivn Eide has been over to Steve Clements’ doing some windrowing for him this week. Steve had broken down and wanted to get finished before he could get his haying equipment repaired. This is a short week for news as there was an early deadline so I hope everyone had a safe and happy Fourth of July.
Dennis J. Kennedy, age 66 of Philip, S.D., died June 29, 2012, at the Hospice of the Hills in Rapid City. Dennis Jay Kennedy was born July 13, 1945, in Philip, S. D., the son of Howard and Dorothy (Aaberg) Kennedy. He grew up in Philip where he attended school through high school. He graduated from South Dakota State University in pharmacy in 1968. Upon graduation, took a job with Walgreen Drug Stores in Phoenix, Ariz. He worked in Phoenix for approximately a year before being drafted into the U.S. Army. After basic training at Fort Lewis, Wash., he was stationed at Madigan General Hospital in Tacoma, Wash., during the Vietnam conflict. Upon his discharge in 1971, he went back to Phoenix to work for two more years. In 1973, he moved to Denver, Colo., and owned a clinic pharmacy for three years. Then in 1976, due to health reasons and a job opening at the drug store in Faith, he moved back to South Dakota. In the fall of 1978, he moved back to Philip to become associated with Howard and Wayne “Duck” at Kennedy Implement and

For those of you who get this issue before the Fourth, you are invited to come to Milesville to join in on the July Fourth celebration. Supper begins at 7:00 p.m. with barbecue beef, buns, drinks, and tableware furnished. Please bring a salad or dessert to share. There will be games for the kids, followed by fireworks at dusk and homemade ice cream. Harvest has begun here in our area which is much earlier than normal. Hot and dry is the forecast, which isn't good for most folks. The weekend of July 23 and 24, Hugh Harty and his family, Jim, Ed, and Moneik and their families were at the home of Ann Breuklander, Hermosa. The boys helped Ann with some projects around her place. July 25, Molly Harty celebrated her fourth birthday with supper at her parent’s, Jim and Adele, house. Others there were Hugh Harty, Ed Harty and Stephanie Cooper and Paul, Moneik and Mikaela Stephens. Keagan and Colby Fitch, Brice Hanson and Carson Hamill attended camp at Victory Center Bible Camp near Ft. Pierre last week. Jensen and Raylor Fitch stayed with their grandparents, Marvin and Vicki Eide, Wednesday afternoon, spent the night and came home Thursday. Their cousin, Kiley Sieler, was also there, so the boys had lots of fun. Glen and Jackie Radway were in Pierre a week ago Sunday where Jackie and daughter Leah Ries attended the Pierre Player's production of "Quilter's." Later, they had supper with Darin, Leah and Deacon Ries. Have a safe Fourth of July. Be careful with your fireworks!

Midland News
Well, folks, due to the Fourth of July holiday coming in the middle of next week we have been asked to get our new’s column in by Friday of this week, for next week’s paper. Have I got you confused yet? I think I may be confusing myself. But, here goes. The combiners are really moving into Midland. Oh, my, are those machines big. Some years back, combines were much smaller, took longer to get the wheat cut, and many didn’t have air conditioners. By the end of the day those folks driving those combines were hot and they were itchy from all that dust. It’s good they have air conditioning now. The days get long and being more comfortable helps a bunch. Talk about long, hot, tiring days, the firefighters with the Colorado fires and the fires in the Black Hills are putting in some long and exhausting days. Have you noticed the last few days how orange the sun is as it is sliding down for the night? I can’t help but think it is due to the haze we are getting from those fires. I called my brother, Phil Meyers, concerning the fires at Colorado Springs, as their son, Damon, Sarah and family live at Colorado Springs. He said they are okay, that the fire is straight west of where they live. When they step out on their deck they can see the fires and the haze from those fires gets pretty thick at times. Seeing the pictures of the fires on TV gives a person a sick feeling, can’t imagine what it would be like to actually be there. They could certainly use the rains they are getting in Florida where they are having too much rain. Sarah is a nurse in Colorado Springs and with all that is going on with folks due to those fires she will be putting in longer hours. Our prayers go out to those folks, for sure. The Midland Pioneer Museum is once again open for the summer season. The days and hours the museum is open are Monday, Tuesday and Friday from 1:30 to 4:00 p.m. Midland does have a real nice museum. Jan Bierle is there to answer questions and if she can’t be there, Mahlon Alcock will be. If you haven’t stopped in at the museum, I invite you to do so. In those buildings is the history of those hardy pioneers. As most of you know, the main building at the museum, the first one you come into, is the former Midland depot. It is an interesting building in itself. A whole lot of history is in that building. Mickey (Martin) Woitte reported the following on the Martin family reunion which was held at Midland’s City Park June 23 and 24. Attending were Herb and Maria Martin, Chicago, Ill., Judy Steinecker, Rockford, Ill., Deanna Peters, Fernley, Nev., Fuzz and Bonnie Martin, Midland, Jeannie Waara, Philip, Susie Martin and Vance and Kristin Martin and family, Midland, Jennifer

A potluck picnic was held in the Midland City Park June 23, and a “left-over’s” lunch at the Woitte’s June 24. Robin and Joe Opitz visited at the parental Woitte home until Tuesday, June 26, and Kristin Woitte stayed until June 30. All of Shorty and Mickey (Martin) Woitte’ kids were home, but for Budd who was unable to come. Those of their kids here were Kandi, Rex, Joe, Robin, Leslee, Kris and Eric. I saw where Deanna (Anderson) Peters was at the Martin reunion. Deanna’s parents were Curt and Thelma (Martin) Anderson. Deanna taught school at Midland for a few years. Thelma wrote and published a number of books that many of us have in our homes. And Mickey is quite an artist I got out my favorite history book “Prairie Progress in West Central South Dakota” and looked up the Henry and Dena Martin history. Henry Martin was born at Woonsocket, S.D., on January 24, 1890, and spent his early life on farms in the Canton and Sioux Falls neighborhoods. He came to Midland in 1910 as his brother-in-law, Jim Huston, told him this was wonderful country.

Henry was a good old-time fiddler. He played the violin at dances all over the country and in the Midland Legion Hall. The Martin place was a regular gathering place for dances on Saturday nights. Always like to learn some of the history of folks who used to live in the Midland area. There was an interesting article in the June 27, 2012, Capital Journal newspaper about a historic Fort Pierre cemetery in which there was going to be a tour on June 28. Karl Fischer tells that when he was a boy, it was the cemetery where everyone in Fort Pierre buried their dead. Catholics on one side and protestants on the other, among the stones marking infantryman from World War I, Cavalry troops and Union soldiers from the Civil War. Fischer told that many folks don’t know about the Cedar Hill Cemetery, hidden in a ripple of hills just outside of town and so a bus tour was being done to share some of the history of that cemetery. “They’re the people who built this country,” says Fischer, “but now their families have mostly died or moved on.” Some of the names in the cemetery belonged to families who never stayed for any length of time in Fort Pierre, which was a jumping-off point for lands to the west. “They were going through the country and then people died,” say Fischer, “So they buried their dead and kept moving.” There is so much history in our State of South Dakota. And as always, I find it interesting. Jerry happened to run into and enjoyed visiting with Butch Dennis and his wife of Rapid City at the store in Midland Thursday. They had been fishing in Pierre catching some good walleye. Butch told Jerry he had driven by his place. That would be the DeYoung place which we bought a number of years ago. They had driven by there on their way out to the former Dennis farm where Butch had grown up. Henry and Hope Dennis had a number of children. In the history book “Prairie Progress in West Central South Dakota,” Olivia (Dennis) Perovich wrote an interesting article about the Dennis-Richardson families. I used parts of that article some time back in my Midland News column. In reading some of it again this morning I found a humorous tale about Henry. In the article it told that Henry enjoyed water fights, and liked to tease and play pranks. Olivia writes, “At the end of harvest he would buy a new hat or pair of shoes and leave his old, worn, greasy ones on the display shelf at the store. On one such occasion, the Midland Co-op returned his old hat by U.S. Mail.” Did have to chuckle as I read that. Congratulations to Mark and Glenda Nemec, who live just outside of Hill City, and got yard of the month for June. They were chosen by the Garden Club ladies and when you see pictures of their yard it is easy to see why their yard was one of those

Henry stayed with Jim and Bird Huston on the Cook place east of the Curt Bentley ranch the first year. In the history book it told he bought a Model T Ford car from Frank Calhoon, thus owning one of the first motor cars in the country at the time. Henry became friends with Alvin Bertelson, who ranched on Bad River east of Midland. Alvin introduced his sister, Dena, to Henry because he figured if he promoted a romance between them, he could ride along to dances in the Model T instead of riding horseback. Guess it worked because Henry Martin and Dena Bertelson were married at Kadoka, October 16, 1916. They moved to Dena’s homestead two miles west of Moenville. According to the history book, it later became a part of the Everett Towne ranch. Dena was born in Iowa in 1894. When they lived in the Moenville area Herbert, Henry Jr., Thelma and Julianna were born. They later had two more children, Albert (Fuzz) and Annetta (Mickey). Dena had gone to school in a little log schoolhouse. Dena went to school in different places, one of them being at the Presbyterian Church in Midland which is now Trinity Lutheran Church. She eventually got a second grade teacher’s certificate and taught in different schools over the years. It goes on to say, one of the highlights of the frontier community was the annual Fourth of July celebration held in Midland. They always had a ladies horse race down Main Street, and Dena rode in them. She won several of those races riding her brother, Albert’s horse, Monte. She also rode one of Frank Calhoon’s horses to victory. In the book it tells that Frank said it couldn’t run, but it did. In the history book, it told that

chosen. It is absolutely beautiful. From what I hear, Mark and Glenda have a scenic spot and live in a log cabin house. Sounds like a road trip might be in order don’t you think? An update on Alice (Donovan) Venner, Pierre, is that she has had a few up and down days this past week, but from the sounds of things more ups are winning. She and her family are getting acquainted with the hospice nurse and said that, “Like Caring Bridge it is an amazing program with amazing people.” What a comfort when you are dealing with serious issues. Alice’s daughter, Micaela, wrote on the Caring Bridge update, “Alice (mom) wants everyone to know what joy she has in reading the Caring Bridge messages and memories. They are the best “GIFT” you can give.” Family asks that you continue to pray for comfort, strength and peace she needs for her journey. And, for restful sleep and good health to

As a caregiver you want to make things better, but it truly is in God’s hands He is our strength and our comfort in the storms of life. The Midland summer reading program was held Wednesdays during the month of June at the Trinity Lutheran Church, with the theme "Bee a Reader." The kids listened to buggy books during story time. Some of the crafts they made were paper plate bees, butterfly life cycle wheels, ladybug bug boxes, and edible bug snacks. Kids sang and danced to songs such as "Baby Bumblebee" and "Itsy Bitsy Spider." They visited the Midland Library each day to check out books and movies from Librarian Karel Reiman. The following awards were given, Kahler Finn and Cass Finn-best helpers, Dane Daly-most creative, Kelsey Hand-best singer, and Tukker Boe and Morgan Sammons-best listeners. Jenna Finn was in charge of the summer reading program this year and was so thankful to the moms and grandma's for helping out. We also want to thank Jenna for all the time and work she put into the summer reading program. It’s a lot of work and reports are that the kids had a great time, some telling librarian Karel about their projects etc. This program is sponsored by the Midland Community Library. As I close out my new’s column for another week our daughter, Charlene Nemec, is in Vilnius, Lithuania. In her email, Charlene writes, “I arrived safely in Vilnius, Lithuania – my thoughts exactly – how does a girl from a farming community in South Dakota get to Vilnius, Lithuania? I can hardly believe it myself, but I am proof that it really can and does happen.” “We do not receive wisdom; we must discover it for ourselves, after a journey through the wilderness which no one else can make for us, which no one can spare us, for our wisdom is the point of view which we come at last to regard the world.” And take time to be kind to each other. Words can be hurtful, think before you speak. Have a good day and a safe Fourth of July.

During Deb Snook’s trip to Washington, D.C. to accept her Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching, she was not able to meet the United States President because he was in Colorado due to that state’s wild fires. She did, however, meet the vice president and his wife. A group of nearly 100 junior high and high school teachers from across the country have received the 2012 Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching. On June 29, Vice President Joe Biden and his wife, Jill Biden, a longtime educator, met with these teachers at the White House’s South Court Auditorium to thank them for their commitment to the nation’s students. PAEMST is the Nation’s highest recognition of kindergarten through 12th grade math and science teachers for outstanding teaching in the United States. The award recognizes these individuals’ commitment to students and their contributions to the profession of teaching. Awardees serve as role models for their colleagues, inspiration to their communities, and leaders in the improvement of mathematics and science education. The 9-1-1 surcharge increase took effect on July 1. The 2012 Legislature approved an increase in the traditional surcharge from the old 75 cents per month to $1.25 per month. That fee is collected by all monthly billed telephone and wireless service providers. In addition, the legislature also assessed the two percent 91-1 surcharge on all prepaid wireless services collected at the retail point of sale. The surcharge pays the cost of operating 9-1-1 public safety dispatch centers. New services will be possible in the Next Generation 9-1-1 system. Citizens can not currently send a text message to a 9-1-1 dispatch center. They are not currently able to send photos or video of crimes or suspects to a 9-1-1 dispatcher.
Philip area blood drive July 10
Want to have a great feeling on Tuesday, July 10? Plan to stop by the blood drive, from 10:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., at the Bad River Senior Citizen’s Center in Philip. By giving blood, a donor helps replenish a community resource used by a neighbor, relative, friend or even complete stranger. The donation gives a future patient the same recovery opportunity as a current patient, because it assures blood will be on the hospital shelf when it is needed. Only when a significant number of people donate on a regular basis can a community maintain adequated blood supplies. “If everyone waited for an emergency to donate, many lives would be jeopardized,” said Lori Liebman, United Blood Services’ donor recruitment director. “Waiting to donate in an emergency only creates more emergencies. Blood must be available at all times in sufficient amounts to meet the needs of a community.” Volunteer blood donors must be at least 16 years old, weigh at least 110 pounds and be in good health. Additional height/weight requirements apply to donors 22 and younger, and donors who are 16, or 17 in certain areas, must have signed permission from a parent or guardian. Potential donors can make an appointment to give at www.bloodhero.com or by calling 605-3428585 in Rapid City or 605-996-3688 in Mitchell. Donors will also receive a free cholesterol test.

New pen meetings laws effective July 1
by SDNA News Service Two changes to South Dakota's open meetings laws will clarify when public meeting agendas are posted and how the public can participate in certain public meetings conducted by teleconference. The changes are among many new laws approved by the legislature last winter that take effect July 1. Public boards that are subject to the state’s open meetings law will now need to make sure their meeting agenda is posted in a place accessible to the public for at least a full 24 hours prior to the meeting. The agenda also must be posted to the public board's website if the board has an online site. The new law stems from complaints taken up by the state’s Open Meetings Commission. People who had filed complaints with the OMC argued the old law did not fully explain how far in advance of a public meeting an agenda notice needed to be posted. Some argued they could not get sufficient advance notice of a public meeting because the agenda had been posted in a public building lobby not accessible other than during normal business hours. Representative Burt Tulson, Lake Norden, represents a legislative district where one of the agenda posting complaints brought before the OMC originated. Residents in the Willow Lake School District filed a complaint regarding the posting of an agenda for a school board meeting. “I think it's important that the public can see the meeting agenda, especially when offices are closed,” Tulson said. “I think this law strikes a good balance. Many (public boards) were posting agendas already.” Sen. Ried Holien, Watertown, also was one of key sponsors of the new law. “This law was necessary to protect public oversight of government,” Holien said. “This law strengthens the people’s right to know and to offer input. Without ongoing vigilance, like the kind this law provides, any level of government could begin to, whether on purpose or by accident, operate in secret.” Holien agreed that the new law should not be too burdensome for public boards. “This was a concern of mine when drafting this legislation,” Holien said. “While we wanted to protect the public's right to know, we also did not want to make government less responsive or more bureaucratic. Therefore, we made compliance as easy and flexible as possible. I do not see any difficulty in complying with this law.” A second change to the open meetings laws requires public boards conducting meetings by teleconference to allow the public to listen by phone or the Internet in certain circumstances. If less than a quorum of a public board is present at its designated meeting location, then arrangements must be made for the public to listen by telephone or the Internet from anywhere. Under the old law, the public would need to go to the public board's main office if it wanted to participate in the board's teleconference meeting. Sen. Al Novstrup of Aberdeen sponsored the teleconference legislation. A frequent critic of the administration of the James River Water District, Novstrup said he became increasingly frustrated when he would have to drive from his home in Aberdeen to the district's office in Huron if he wanted to listen to a district board's teleconference meeting. “It wasn’t that the meeting wasn’t open, it wasn’t available at a price you could afford,” Novstrup said, citing instances where members of the public may drive 200 miles in order to listen to a public meeting that may last only 10 minutes. Novstrup said the change will affect state boards and commissions more than local government boards. State boards are more frequent users of teleconference meetings, often because the board members are from various locations across the state.

South Dakota is reporting its first West Nile virus (WNV) detections of the season, a positive mosquito pool in Brookings County and one in Brown County. “This will be the 11th year of West Nile transmission in South Dakota and it may be tempting to be complacent,” said Dr. Lon Kightlinger, state epidemiologist for the Department of Health. “We need to remember that it can be a serious, even fatal illness, and get in the habit of protecting ourselves by using repellents, limiting exposure, and getting rid of mosquito breeding spots.” 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. In South Dakota peak transmission of WNV is July through early September. South Dakota has reported 1,759 cases, including 26 deaths, since its first case in 2002. Personal precautions are especially important for those at high risk for WNV – people over 50, pregnant women, transplant patients, people 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.

Baby it's hot outside! That is the way June faded into the sunset. Hot and dry. The sun parches the prairie while the wind sucks the moisture from the plants, leaving them brittle and dried. Many areas are being burned up with simple things like lightening started fires and even a spark from a mower or glass that the sun beats down on relentlessly have started fires. With the Fourth of July, Independence Day celebrations, I would hope that maybe a January fireworks display would be good, with lots of snow. At any rate, however you celebrate, be careful. Harvest has begun around the area. Combine crews are arriving in Kadoka and Philip and readying their machines to get an earnest start in the wheat fields, but pickings are a bit slim with farmers choosing to hay crops that didn't appear too good or were hail damaged. This isn't the first year harvest was going by July 1st. And there are grasshoppers! Billions of the little critters, even around town, gnawing on the grass stems and coating the corral posts. Bill and I had a new appreciation for things done the old ways. Monday, while on the road to Watertown with our trailer, the air conditioner on the pickup quit about five miles out of town. Down came the windows, with the heat index at 100˚, it was just hot air and our hair blew, with little visiting or listening to the radio as those sounds were deafened by the noise of the road and wind. The smell of the feed lots penetrated our nostrils, but also we enjoyed the smell of fresh mowed alfalfa fields. Oh how spoiled we have become. The only thing we were missing was the burlap bag tied across the front of the car to cool the radiator and afford an air cooled drink when we stopped – now that would have really been stepping back in time. We settled into a motel at Watertown for the next two nights and were thankful for showers and air conditioning. Tuesday, we spent part of the day getting the pickup air conditioner fixed and making numerous trips to Goodwill with clothing, as well as taking care of other business while there. L.T. Works and Judy DeWitt were left to take care of the cat and house. A roofing crew was working to tear off old shingles and replace rotted underlay on the north addition as well as shingle the south side. George, Sandee and Roxie Gittings were in Pierre Monday for a doctor's appointment for George. The results of the tests were good. Tony Harty was out and about Monday and visited Shirley Hair in the morning, shaded up during the heat of the day, then in the afternoon chatted with his niece, Kathy Brown, and Dale Koehn. Roxie Gittings returned to her home in Eagan, Minn., early Tuesday morning. A miserable night of not being able to get comfortable was enough to send Tony Harty scurrying to Pierre Tuesday early to meet Merlin Bennett to be worked on. When he got home, he visited Shirley Hair, then later in the day made a trip to Philip to pick up medication and watch softball games. He and Kathy Brown grabbed a pizza before her team the Weta River Rats were up. It was still hot into the evening. Haying has been keeping Don and Vi Moody busy at their ranch. Tuesday, Don kept a pickup appointment and Vi a hair appointment in Philip. They also began fixing up and repairing the metal shed that blew across a corral in a violent, strong wind this summer. Rain is needed again. Tuesday evening, Shelley Seager arrived at the home of her niece, Amanda and Adam Claflin, Harrisburg, spending the night, then all coming on to Watertown early Wednesday where the five of us worked at clearing Sandra's apartment. It was a hot, humid day so Bill worked in the shade of a tree and sorted things that were carried to him. What to keep, and what things to toss or give away? In the afternoon, help arrived with folks from C.A.R.E helping move the heavier things down the stairs. How sad that a life can be reduced to be carried away in a few short hours. Know Not Why: “Our Father has His reasons in this life we know not why. But in our trials and pain, our soul does not die.” Author – BJ Shelley made it back to Sutton that evening. Bill, I, Amanda and Adam went to Madison together, visited with grandson, Chase May, and Carly, dropping off one car there as well as some other items, then on to our homes. Wednesday, there was a little relief from the heat with the temp in the mid 70s in Kadoka. In the morning, Tony Harty sat in on court proceedings. Jessica Gittings took Daniel to a birthday party Friday afternoon for Aiden Heltzel. Greg Utterback and "John Deere" Jim Brimm, Creston, Iowa, arrived at the George Gittings home about noon Friday to hunt prairie dogs in the area. Kathy Brown was a Thursday visitor at the home of Tony Harty in the afternoon. Tony stopped by our place and engaged Judy in a farkel game or two. Friday, Tony took off early for Martin, but with road construction and some rain south of Kadoka, traffic was detoured, so that added another 33 miles to the already 60 mile trip. He took delivery of several cases of chickens for customers in this area. Luckily, he could use the main road on the return trip, which saved miles and time. He had dinner out, then made deliveries around town and visited Shirley Hair later in the day, and helped Kathy Brown take a bike to a gal to use to get to work. A little faster than walking. Friday morning, Randy Yost, Hayes, applied aerial spray for grasshopper control on Vi and Don Moody's alfalfa bottoms and adjoining necessary acreage. It was pretty neat to see the two planes in action. Also, when Don and Vi arrived at their Rapid Valley place Friday evening, the hay at their little ranch had already been cut and baled, so that was nice progress. It yielded out fairly well all things considered this year. They got their little mowing tractor up and running again too, so all seems to be going well. Vi said, "Now maybe we can still call it our R&R place." Rest and relaxation. Friday afternoon, Bill and L.T. Works went to Philip to check in at the card room, but came home early enough to pick up Judy DeWitt and me to go to Rapid, visit at Eric Seager's and present little Eli with his first birthday card, (that being Saturday, June 30). We also visited at Zack Seager's, then attended the races, having a late night out. We appreciate the friendship from the many folks we call friends. Your cards and calls are indeed appreciated and welcomed. So often fear stops one from picking up the phone or jotting a note. The fear about not saying the “right thing” cancels heartfelt reaching out. Thanks for not letting that
fear stop you. Kinsey, Natalie, Kohen and Kelsey Gittings arrived at the George Gittings home early Saturday morning to be here for the wedding of their mom, Beth, and Steven Stewart. Very hot and dry week in Sturgis. Tuesday was the hottest with 106˚. Saturday morning, Ralph and Cathy Fiedler packed up and headed for Philip to attend the wedding of Steven Stewart and Beth Davis, arriving at the Richard Stewart home, where Kellie and Kadence Halverson, Kennebec, and the Beau Stewart family, Beresford, had already arrived. The house was a beehive of activity with visiting, while making salads for the reception. Ralph and Cathy stopped by the nursing home to see her mom, Katy Drageset, before attending the wedding and reception/ dance at the Legion Hall that evening. Sunday, Ralph and Cathy went to the Richard Stewart home for brunch, visited with the family, and then returned to Sturgis. Don and Vi Moody had a front row seat at their Rapid Valley home, near the airport turnoff, when rescue units and law enforce-
ment vehicles went racing by with sirens to the Rapid City Regional Airport. A plane from Phoenix, Ariz., to Chicago had to shut an engine down. It had 131 passengers and a crew of five. It landed safely with one engine – the other shutdown with a drop in oil pressure. The plane landed fine without incident, but a lot of preparation was made in case things didn't work as planned. Never Alone Again –This road is a long one, but together, all of us as one, will win back our self-respect and begin walking our new road to this beautiful thing called life. Sunday morning, Bill Sumpter and L.T. Works went to Terry Buchert's and they all took a drive to the Howes and Plainview area to see how crops faired from the Saturday evening hail. There was considerable hail just two miles north of Philip that damaged crops there, and the corn at Howes is probably done for, even though they got 1.4" of rain along with hail. In the afternoon, I joined the many friends and family in Philip to wish Helen Sorenson a happy 90th birthday.
4-H Performing Arts Troupe
Every summer since 1984, youth from all over South Dakota come together to form the 4-H Performing Arts Troupe to perform a variety show. This year, the teens converged on Northern State University in Aberdeen for the week long preparation camp. The 61 youth, ages 13 through 18, from 23 counties, will showcase the songs and dances of the iconic TV series American Bandstand that went into syndication years before any of these performers were born.
