Just before the “Heroes Among
Us” Memorial Day Service began
Monday at West Lawn Memorial
Park and Funeral Home, he shuf-
fled down the aisle to a spot in the
front row reserved for him.
When 88-year-old William “Bill”
Kunkle of Harrisburg was seated,
Musgrove Family Mortuary Fu-
neral Director Dee Harbison whis-
pered to him: “Mr. Kunkle, at the
end of the service, we’d like to
honor you with the ceremonial
Kunkle wondered if there had
been some mistake, he said later. A
guy who’d been sent home from
Hawaii by the Navy because he’d
been so emotionally wracked by
Kunkle looked at Harbison. His
eyes glistened. His head nodded
To his right, tucked into the nook
reserved for families during funer-
als, singers from Willamette High’s
Topnotchers musical ensemble no-
ticed Kunkle.
“He had this sad lip quiver,” said
Jarom Jenkins, a 16-year-old soph-
omore. “He had this blank stare on
his face, as if thinking of all the
men he’d met back then who
weren’t here.”
Later, during a song, Jenkins
himself appeared on the verge of
“Some of the singers were getting
pretty choked up,” Kunkle noticed.
As I sat beside him – I was one of
the speakers – I’m not sure Bill un-
derstood why the teenagers were so
emotional, that it was largely be-
cause of him.
This is a column about a bridge
made of music, spanning the
chasm between a generation leav-
ing our world and a generation
that’s inheriting it.
Since 2007, the Topnotchers
have sung at the three Memorial
Day services each year that Mus-
grove puts on to honor vets. It’s an
eight-hour time commitment on a
vacation day.
“I’ve never heard a single stu-
dent complain about doing this,”
said Topnotchers Director Mike
“It’s personal for me,” said senior
Nicholas Silva, whose family tree
has plenty of military leaves. “It’s
touching to see these men hon-
Earlier in the day, as a steady
rain fell on the Springfield Memo-
rial Gardens chapel, the 16-mem-
ber group – eight girls, eight boys –
had opened the first ceremony with
“The Star Spangled Banner.”
When the group sang a military
medley – a song for each major
branch of service – vets were asked
to stand during their respective an-
thems. A few stood up with uneasy
looks chiseled on their faces.
“When I saw that, I just started
crying,” said senior Topnotcher
Ellie Thompson. “I had to look
away to compose myself. We’re so
young and haven’t experienced
anything like what they did.”
“It was like you were looking not
just at people but the stories in
their eyes,” Silva said.
At a second event, at Lane Me-
morial Gardens’ much-smaller
chapel on West 11th Avenue, the
Topnotchers – the girls in sleeve-
less dresses – had to stand outside
in a blustery wind until time for
their three appearances.
Music connects oldest and
youngest generations

Issues with a previously ap-
proved plat, legal land descriptions
along the Cheyenne River and
grader payments highlighted the
June 4 Haakon County Commis-
sion meeting.
At last month’s meeting the
board approved a plat for Fred
Hoag for land north of Highway 14
and east of Highway 73. Abutting
landowners, Michael and Janice
Schofield, had concerns with the
plat and the recently completed
survey, stated Auditor Patricia
Freeman. “Michael said the marks
are off. He is talking about hiring a
surveyor and having it redone,” she
said. “Michael has even said if
boundaries are put where they
should be, it would be advanta-
geous to Fred. He just wants it
done right.”
Don Jacobson, Ft. Pierre sur-
veyor, and Haakon County Regis-
ter of Deeds Traci Radway looked
at the plat and noticed that it had
been revised, with dates of revision
noted on the plat. The revision took
place after the commission ap-
proved the plat at the May 7, 2013,
meeting. Jacobson noted that a
surveyor is not suppose to revise an
approved plat.
The question of easements being
part of the plat was discussed. Rad-
way noted that easements are not
supposed to be on the plats.
Jacobson suggested that the
board have State’s Attorney Gay
Tollefson review the plat and the
revision issues for legal status.
Toni Rhodes, director of equal-
ization, met with the board regard-
ing land parcel legal descriptions
along the Cheyenne River.
She noted that over the past 100
plus years the river has changed its
course, in some areas a great deal.
This has created issues with the
legal descriptions, which need to be
corrected. Rhodes noted that the
Central South Dakota Enhance-
ment District employees have of-
fered to help with the project. The
estimated cost would be just over
$2,000. Rhodes asked if her office’s
budget could be supplemented by
$3,000, giving the project some
extra funds if needed.
Rhodes noted that there are
about 274 parcels along the river
that are affected. Commissioner Ed
Briggs noted that the riverbed’s
change does not affect the border
designation, that will always be the
riverbed reflected on the 1891 map.
Commission Chairman Steve
Clements noted the goal would not
be to gain taxes, but to have the
legal descriptions straightened out.
The board approved the $3,000
request with the funds coming out
of the contingency fund.
Judy Goldhammer, First West-
ern Insurance, Wall, reviewed
Haakon County’s policy for build-
ings and their contents, vehicles
and other items. Goldhammer
noted that while some areas show
some increase, it was typically due
to newer equipment and/or more
The board approved a request
from the Philip Arena Association
for a special liquor license for the
matched bronc ride, June 14. The

cense as the owner has not yet sub-
mitted an application.

The annual contract with Cen-
tral South Dakota Enhancement
District was approved with a mem-
bership payment of $5,618.50.
Freeman reported that the South
Dakota Department of Game, Fish
and Parks submitted that an
amount of $4,349.92 was appropri-
ated for 2014 animal damage con-
trol for the county.
Alex Kulesza, Butler Machinery
Company, Rapid City, finalized the
payments schedule for the three
new graders with the commission-
ers. The yearly payments for five
years is $51,323.68. The board ap-
proved the supplement of funds
from the road and bridge surplus
property fund in the amount of
$429,600, and $100,000 from each
of capital outlay and swap funds to
the road and bridge budget. The
$429,600 is the monies received
from the sale of the three surplused
Kenny Neville, highway depart-
ment superintendent, updated the
commissioners on his department’s
activities. He was approved to at-
tend the summer highway superin-
tendent meeting in Pierre, June 12
and 13. The board also approved
the designation of Dwight Slovek
as highway department foreman
and also the corresponding wage
increase. Slovek replaces Hugh
Harty, who recently retired.
Reports reviewed included the
sheriff’s report and the Extension
office report. Tabled reports were
the auditor/treasurer, veteran’s
service officer, treasurer, register
of deeds and county health nurse.
The meeting minutes from May
7, 2013, and last month’s warrants
were approved.
The board entered into an execu-
tive session to discuss personnel for
approximately one hour. No action
was taken following the session.
The board will meet Tuesday,
July 2, beginning at 9:00 a.m. for
budget discussion with the regular
meeting to follow.
Commissioners discuss land issues
by Del Bartels
At approximately 12:35 p.m.,
Tuesday, June 4, the 30-bed Philip
Nursing Home facility was en-
gulfed in a mock fire.
Flames were detected in the
north wing. The disaster was min-
imalized through practiced proce-
dures, assistance from multiple
departments, and the organized
evacuation of all residents and per-
Before emergency responders
could arrive, though all doors had
been closed immediately, smoke
had billowed to the south hall.
Eventually the injured list would
include two smoke inhalation vic-
tims and one resident with a
burned hand.
The exercise included nursing
home staff, Philip city police, the
Haakon County Sheriffs Office,
Philip Volunteer Fire Department,
Philip Ambulance Service, Haakon
County Emergency Manager Lola
Roseth, disaster coordinator Linda
Smith, and inspectors from the
state level.
There were seemingly more peo-
ple carrying clipboards and taking
notes than were actually involved
in the drill. Exclamations, made at
critical moments, included, “Smoke
in the south hall!,” “We need a
count!,” “The firemen have ar-
rived!,” “Smoke has infiltrated the
whole building!,” “Caroline is miss-
ing!,” “Foot pedals on all wheel-
chairs!,” “We’ve been around the
building twice!,” “We’ve found
her!,” and “The head count is good!”
Personnel were with the resi-
dents out on the neighboring lawn.
Beds, wheelchairs and regular
chairs were used. Attending to the
residents after the evacuation
would be part of the debriefing.
At approximately 1:00 p.m., the
fire was under control and the res-
idents were being brought back to
their rooms. At approximately 1:15
p.m. the debriefing began.
Though the drill was supposed to
be as realistic as possible, Philip
Health Services, Inc. Chief Execu-
tive Officer Kent Olson admitted
that there was a degree of “artifi-
ciality.” “It’s supposed to be a cre-
ation of confusion,” he said, and
added, “We do internal fire drills
all the time.” People wearing iden-
tifying vests helped direct the sce-
nario, and they would be part of the
debriefing immediately following
the disaster.
Each year, the state of South
Dakota and Federal Emergency
Management Agency require each
county emergency management to
have a preapproved full scale exer-
cise, tabletop exercise, functional
exercise or a drill. Last year’s emer-
gency management scenario was a
mock flooding in the county.
This year the requirement was a
full scale exercise. A scenario,
which is decided by the capabilities
the organization wants to test, was
written. Philip Health Services,
Inc., also needed to conduct an ex-
ercise, so PHSI and Roseth joined
forces for this year’s training. The
capabilities tested were communi-
cations, on-site incident manage-
ment, citizen evacuation and
shelter in place. The two liaisons
from the state were Brad
Maskovich, state exercise coordina-
tor with the Department of Public
Safety, and Tyle Spomer, regional
coordinator with the South Dakota
Office of Emergency Management.
Mock fire at Philip Nursing Home
Evacuation was begun immediately. Head counts of residents and personnel
were repeatedly done. All the while, doors were being closed to limit the speed
of the mock fire, first responders were arriving, triage was done on injured indi-
viduals, and clipboards were filled with notes for the later debriefing on the mock
emergency at the Philip Nursing Home. Photo by Del Bartels
The driveway was blocked with a vehicle so noninvolved visitors wouldn’t cause
any real danger to the residents or personnel who gathered outside the Philip
Nursing Home. The mock fire was this year’s county disaster training evaluation.

The 71st annual session of the
American Legion Boys State of
South Dakota convened on the
campus of Northern State Univer-
sity, Aberdeen, May 27 through
May 31, with 360 young men be-
tween their junior and senior years
Wheeler-Brooks American Le-
gion Post #173, Philip, sponsored
Gavin Brucklacher and Brian Pfei-
fle to attend. The post’s auxiliary
sponsored Madison Hand to attend
the South Dakota Girls State, May
27 through June 1, at the Univer-
sity of South Dakota, Vermillion.
Midland’s American Legion #143
sponsored Chauncey Trapp to at-
tend Boys State.
Hand did not really know what
to expect. “... all I knew was that it
would be a very different experi-
ence for me. Once there, I was
taken back by how little I actually
knew about the government,” said
“Boys state was a great experi-
ence, especially to kick-start my
senior year. I’d go back in a heart-
beat if I had the chance,” stated
Brucklacher. He was elected as a
city alderman and chief of police for
the city of Washington D.C., county
commissioner, and was the party
chairman for his city. He was also
in the Boys State band.
Pfeifle believed the best part
was, “all the people I met and how
much fun I had there. It was a
memorable experience and I’m glad
I did it.” He added, “I learned about
the government. I didn’t know how
much went into it. It’s a really big
process. I learned a lot there.”
“It was enjoyable to spend a
week learning about our state gov-
ernment, the federal government,
the different court systems and
even law enforcement,” said Hand.
She said that what made Girls
State most impressive was how
real they made everything seem.
By splitting up all the girls into
cities, counties, and then later sep-
arating them into two different po-
litical parties – Federalists and
Nationalists – it made the experi-
ence very real. The students
drafted bills and presented them to
the House and Senate to try to get
them passed.
Over 60 volunteer staff members
from local, county and state gov-
ernment along with members of
the South Dakota Army National
Guard, colleges and universities,
and associations in South Dakota
assisted the American Legion in
presenting the program. Activities
included legislative sessions, court
proceedings, assemblies, law en-
forcement, presentations, bands,
chorus and recreational programs.
“I think the funnest thing for
me,” said Pfeifle, “was we were
having a tug-of-war and were win-
ning, when the three biggest guys
we had just fell down and we lost.
It made me laugh.”

Lookin’ Around by Syd Iwan
Is it possible to work too hard at
having fun? I suspect it might be.
Take the RV that I passed on the
freeway the other day. Here was
this huge brown RV rolling down
the road with a car hooked on be-
hind. Two canoes were strapped to
the top of the car and three bicycles
on the back of it. One more bike
was strapped to the back of the RV.
“My goodness!” I thought. “These
people are working really hard at
having a good time!”
And, for them, it might be quite
a lot of fun. I don’t know for sure.
It would be a little tedious for me.
There you are driving this small
train many miles to get to an inter-
esting destination. Then you’d
have to find a place to park and get
set up with electrical and plumb-
ing connections after making sure
the RV was fairly level. You’d prob-
ably have to take down the canoes
and bikes and get all settled in.
This would take quite a bit of time.
Naturally, you wouldn’t want to
miss anything so you might see if
the park had a decent pool and go
for a swim. Other local attractions
should really be checked out as
All in all, I had no envy at all for
the family or group that was trav-
eling around in this mobile fun ma-
chine. I maybe could handle
driving to some resort, setting up
and staying there for a week or so,
but moving this rig to new loca-
tions every day would soon try my
patience. I had a travel trailer for
a while and pulled it from South
Carolina back home to the ranch
after being in the Navy. It was
somewhat enjoyable, but nothing
I’d care to repeat at this point in
my life. I think of the time some-
where in Kentucky or Tennessee
when I was going over some moun-
tains, and my car vapor locked and
would barely move. “Now what am
I going to do?” I wondered. I had vi-
sions of being stalled out on a
steep, winding mountain road with
a defunct car pulling a trailer.
Luckily, things righted themselves
after a cool-down, and I could con-
tinue on and arrive home with no
major problems. I parked the
trailer at the ranch where it sat a
year or two until someone offered
to buy it. I sold it. My trailer days
were over. I had some good times
in that camper and don’t regret
having had it for a few years, but
it was time to move on to other
things. I figured there were easier
ways to have fun.
Wife Corinne and I feel some-
what similar when we watch the
revelry going on in Times Square
on New Year’s Eve. Everyone is
laughing, and shouting, and appar-
ently having quite a grand time.
Personally, Corinne and I have no
desire at all to stand around out-
side all bundled up against the cold
and waiting for some silly ball to
drop, signaling the beginning of a
new year. It always looks to us like
those folks in Time Square are try-
ing awfully hard to have a good
time. More power to them, but
don’t expect us to join them any-
time soon.
Part of my aversion to manufac-
tured fun has to do with being
raised on a ranch. You simply have
to travel too far to find a party, and
sometimes the roads are muddy or
snow covered to boot. It is easier to
find simpler things for entertain-
ment such as walks on the prairie,
a dip in the stock dam on a hot day,
fishing, watching a sunset, and the
Additionally, seeking constant
pleasure seems a bit shallow as a
life’s goal. Isn’t it somewhat better
to accomplish useful things in life?
It seems that way to me anyway.
What is ideal is when your work is
enjoyable. For many of us, ranch-
ing often fills the bill. Being out-
side tending critters has some bad
times, but also many good ones. I
also find it satisfying to provide
music at church on Sunday, write
down various observations on life,
and help take care of my young son
who can’t do a lot of things for him-
self. I also like fiddling with com-
puters, practicing the piano,
reading books, eating a tasty meal,
and just enjoying life in general. I
seem to have no need to search for
pleasure. It’s all around me. All I
have to do is enjoy it.
For instance, I’ve just finished
writing this which took some con-
centration, typing, and computer
fiddling. Next I should practice the
piano in getting things ready for
church tomorrow. After that, I
have some shrimp needing to be
cooked up with pasta, tomatoes,
mushrooms and cheese. Sponge
cake with cream-cheese frosting is
available for dessert. Take a guess.
Would I rather be right here lead-
ing the simple life or traveling the
country in a huge RV trailing a car
with attached boats and bikes?
Yep, you’re right. Home is where
the heart is, and right now my
heart is glad to be at home.

“We could have renamed the
group The Popsicles,” McCornack
Again, no complaints from the
Afterward, those helping put on
the services – including Boy Scout
Troop No. 60 – gathered at West
Lawn Memorial Garden for a quick
lunch before the final service. The
Topnotchers serenaded with an im-
promptu trio of light songs.
“It was like we all needed an
emotional release, to take a breath
and lighten things up a bit,” Mc-
Cornack said.
But if the mood lightened, that
soon changed when Bill Kunkle
shuffled down the aisle and took
his front-row seat for the finale.
He had been featured in The
Register-Guard’s World War II se-
ries in December 2011. So anxious
to serve, he’d altered his birth cer-
tificate before his interview with
the Marines so it looked as if he
were 18 instead of 16.
By the time he was found out,
Kunkle had joined the Navy.
He became a medical corpsman at
Pearl Harbor Naval Hospital,
treating mainly burn victims of
Japan’s Dec. 7, 1941, surprise aer-
ial attack.
After 16 months, he was so shell-
shocked and guilt-ridden about not
being able to save dying men that
the Navy sent him home and hon-
orably discharged him. By his own
admission, he has never recovered.
“I would sit with these guys and
watch them die,” he said, “and
there was nothing I could do for
When he saw an ad for the Me-
morial Day service, despite a fear
of large gatherings – and concern
from his wife – something drew
him to West Lawn’s chapel. And
when Musgrove’s Harbison learned
who he was, she escorted him, his
son and his daughter-in-law to the
front, about 10 feet from the off-to-
the-side Topnotchers.
“They were so professional,”
Kunkle said. “As good a group as
I’ve heard – and just high school
The emotions built as the Top-
notchers sang.
“To us it’s just songs,” Jenkins
said. “To them it’s memories.”
The group’s final song was
“America the Beautiful.”
“Coming near the end of the
service, that song is like putting on
a blanket after shivering through
some difficult spots,” McCornack
Honor guards Adam Knutson
and Jake Knutson, brothers with
the Oregon Army National Guard,
unfolded and refolded the Ameri-
can flag, then presented it to Kun-
He took it and held it to his chest
like a mother might hold a new-
“It was one of the greatest days
of my life,” Kunkle later told me. “I
am so grateful.” Though unworthy,
he added.
I disagreed.
With the service over, Kunkle
was surrounded by well-wishers.
Junior Kelsie Loomis, one of the
Topnotchers, stepped in front of
“Sir,” she said, eyes pleading,
“can I get a hug?”
And on this Memorial Day, two
disparate generations became one,
melded by tears that neither
should have felt ashamed to shed.

In so many ways ... by Del Bartels
The list is endless of how we individually recall our fathers. Even
the same memories can seem to run the gamut from smothering and
vicarious to keeping an aloof distance. A curious combination of words
can fly us back to our younger years, because that was how dad used
to say those words. A scent, be it of car oil, pipe tobacco or an after-
shave, can put Dad right in front of us. The way the water blindingly
reflects the sun through the reeds, the three-toned car rumbling by on
the road, the worn easy chair at a yard sale, all make the eye blink and
we see Dad. The heat of a carpet burn from roughhousing in the living
room, the slime of grease from a old engine, a dusty and gritty coat of
dirt reminiscent of the ball park, all are touches of Dad.
Remember being spanked? Or was the disappointment in Dad’s eyes
over your behavior a far worse punishment? Was it a laugh and a chal-
lenging “Oh, yeah?” or a quiet aging behind the eyes when you first
called him “Old man?” As a son, did you really have “the talk” about
girls with him? As a daughter, did your first few dates actually face
the traditional inquisition with him when the young men picked you
up? Was it an unspoken truth that Dad could actually do the dishes if
Mom asked or she had to be gone for a few days?
“Daddy, Daddy, don’t let go of the bike!” And he had already let go
and was trying to not gasp for air while jogging alongside.
It was not Mom’s place, but was Dad’s duty to break the news to you
about your childhood dog. At the time, only Mom thought to suspect
that while Dad was digging the final resting place, he was crying, too.
One day you found Dad’s wallet still on his dresser, and a photo of
you was in it. Those silly pictures of you from grade school are hidden
away in the albums, but guess who has them memorized? Mom finally
breaks down and takes some of your art work off of the refrigerator,
and, mysteriously, someone puts them back up. Mom may be the one
who phoned repeatedly to check on you when they were gone that first
time overnight, but you could hear her reporting to him as if he had
insisted on the calls. You may be 75, but Dad still calls you kid.
Who taught you the difference between a regular and Phillips screw-
driver? Who didn’t care much for Monopoly, but once pressured into
playing could beat you every time? You get up for a drink of water, and
who is still staring at the TV, and its a sob story movie?
He may be almost perfect in your eyes, but it is Dad who always
wants his kids to do better than he did. It’s one thing to see Mom hold-
ing her newborn grandchild, it’s another to see Dad doing the same
thing. Everybody tells stories, but whose are listened to more intently
because those stories are of events seldom spoken of? It’s unsettling
that, the older you get, the smarter your Dad was.
And we who hold dear such memories of our fathers in these and so
many other ways, we say back to them, “I love you, too, Dad.”
Seeing so many friends, class-
mates and former teacher connec-
tions in Milesville several weeks
ago has brought back so many fond
We thought that when we moved
back to western South Dakota sev-
eral years ago we would be able to
spend more time in the Philip area.
But following Sonny’s stroke we
haven’t been able to travel as much
as we’d like. However, we have
kept in touch with the happenings
in the area and enjoyed reading
about so many of you through the
Pioneer Review.
We will be moving to the Sioux
Falls area sometime later this year
and hope we will be able to see
some of you and those we missed
before we leave. However, if we
don’t, please know what a lasting
mark you have made in our lives.
It is obvious how much the Philip
area means to Sonny, since he was
born and raised there. He loved the
customers he served as if they were
family. The time spent with former
classmates was always a fun time
as I listened to all the stories and
came to know you in the commu-
nity and at the reunions. However,
it is the experience of coming to
teach in the Milesville community
that has left a lasting impression
on me.
Leaving Sioux Falls nearly 40
years ago and starting out on an
adventure to teach at a country
school was a life-changing event for
me. I must admit that I was scared
and uncertain of what it would be
like so far away from home. One of
my family members said to me,
“Philip, that’s out in the middle of
nowhere.” I told them, “Well, I am
going to teach 25 miles north of
nowhere!” But the insecurity was
soon dismissed as I found myself
immersed in a wonderful relation-
ship of teaching some of the best
students I would have the opportu-
nity to work with through the
years. And far beyond the class-
room the commitment of parents
and the hospitality of the commu-
nity reached out and shared a way
of life that gave me a lasting appre-
ciation for the people and the area.
When I encountered difficult par-
ents or troubling students in the
years to come, I would always re-
member with fondness the years of
teaching in those first years in
Far beyond a mere teaching ex-
perience, I gained an appreciation
of the beauty of the prairie and the
depth of character of the individu-
als who worked the land. As I trav-
eled north of Milesville on a clear
day where the sky meets the earth,
my thoughts would give way to
emotions and I would marvel at the
simplistic beauty of God’s world.
The words of the Psalms, “How
lovely is your dwelling place, O
Lord” come to mind as I thought
this must be a little bit of heaven
on earth. The beauty of the coun-
tryside and warmth of the commu-
nity made my first years of
teaching a memorable experience.
Secondly, I would like to say
thank you to the Pioneer Review
and your area correspondents for
bringing the news into our lives
every week. I must confess that for
many years newspaper reading
was put behind work and family re-
sponsibilities and I tried to find
time to read amidst the many de-
mands of daily life. However, since
I now read the paper to Sonny
weekly, it has become not only a
means of learning about commu-
nity happenings but a reconnection
to the people we knew and loved.
The news becomes a topic of con-
versation throughout the week as I
hear, “Well, how about that ____ I
remember when ....”
Thank you to the correspondents
for your work in bringing the news
into our lives each week. You are
the historians of today. For years to
come people will search the pages
of the Pioneer Review to find out
about their friends and families
and the happenings of a time gone
So we travel to the east to find a
home near family and medical fa-
cilities, our hearts will always be in
Philip and surrounding areas, a bit
of heaven on earth. Thanks for the
Sonny and Elsie (Ozzie) Baye

Rural Livin’
Farm Safety and Employee
It was a bit of a coincidence that
one day when I was reflecting on
the HOSTA (Hazardous Occupa-
tion and Safety Training in Agri-
culture, or “Tractor Safety” School)
that was recently held in Winner,
I read an interesting entry in the
journal type book by Ryan Taylor,
“Cowboy Logic Family Style”.
The theme of Ryan Taylor’s
entry in the book was the virtue of
his fathers’ management skills,
and how he tries hard to treat peo-
ple the same way, helped of course
by his upbringing. At least on a
farm or ranch, one of the chal-
lenges of a good manager (that
would usually be the owner) is
when employees (including their
children) have “farm wrecks.” For-
tunately for the operator, most
“farm wrecks” involve various de-
grees of severity of damage to the
piece of farm machinery being
used, but not to the person at the
controls. I can attest to this as I
had several “farm wrecks” while
growing up and working for neigh-
bors in my college years, yet re-
mained relatively unscathed in
terms of personal injury.
I can also agree with Ryan’s ob-
servation of his father’s lack of
yelling, screaming, chewing out
and belittling of the “wrecker”, in
that such actions were about as ef-
fective as yelling at cattle. I know
I deserved a good tongue lashing
after some of my wrecks, and
dreaded how bad I might get it
when the manager assessed the
damage. I don’t recall any severe
belittling for my casualties, but do
remember a variety of reactions. I
didn’t enjoy any of them, but the
ones farthest from the yelling,
screaming and belittling end of the
spectrum motivated me to do bet-
ter in the future much more than
the agitated ones.
Unfortunately, too many “farm
wrecks” do involve personal injury
or much worse. While the farm
manager/owner cannot control all
of the unsafe acts their employees
do, they can remove stress by
treating their help fairly and with
respect, maintain their equipment
and facilities with safety in mind,
provide safety instruction and en-
courage safe work habits.
Four good ideas to control or re-
duce accidents are: 1. If possible,
remove the hazard, 2. If you can-
not remove the hazard, guard it, 3.
Educate the worker, and 4. Protect
the worker.
Nic Uilk, Instructor in the Ag
and Biosystems Engineering De-
partment at SDSU, coordinated
and taught the HOSTA program
and did a great job of informing
the eight youth in attendance
about the potential perils of work-
ing on a farm or ranch. Nic plans
to hold a series of HOSTA pro-
grams next year at various loca-
tions around the state. Fourteen
and fifteen year old youth who
plan to work on a farm other than
for their parents need to complete
the requirements for a HOSTA
certificate. Somewhat younger and
older youth, and those who will be
working for their parents are also
welcome to attend. For more infor-
mation on the HOSTA program,

“The purpose of rangeland judg-
ing is to provide an understanding
of rangeland resources and a sense
of stewardship in natural resource
management,” noted Dave Ollila
on a South Dakota State Uni-
veristy iGrow Web page.
The 30th annual Rangeland
Days and ninth annual Soil Days
is set for June 25 and 26 at
Kadoka. Youth between the ages of
eight and 18, as well as adults, will
test their rangeland knowledge
during the two days. Youth are bro-
ken up into four groups, based
upon their ages. Learning activities
are designed for a variety of age
groups and expertise – starting
with plant morphology and identi-
fication on up to judging habitat
suitability for cattle or grouse.
The first day is spent on the
prairie, learning about the proper-
ties of rangeland resources and
management practices to employ.
The second day the youth and
adults apply this newly found
knowledge through scenarios cre-
ated in a contest format.
In addition, students have the
opportunity to compete in cate-
gories including informative dis-
plays about rangeland, exhibiting
student developed range plant col-
lections and a speech contest on
range related topics. The student
participant with the highest cumu-
lative score in each age division
will be award a “Top Hand” belt
The age divisons break out as fol-
lows: New Rangers – eight to 10
year olds, Wranglers – 11-13 year
olds, Scouts –14-18 year olds with
no previous range judging experi-
ence and Go-Gettters 14-18 year
olds who have previous range eval-
uation experience.
The participants in 14-18 year
old (high school youth forum)
speech contest will be competing
for the privilege to represent South
Dakota at the International Society
for Range Management Conven-
tion to be held in Orlando, Fla., in
February 2014. All travel expenses
for the student will be sponsored by
S.D. Rangeland Days and the
South Dakota Section of the Soci-
ety for Range Management.
The top placing 4-H range team
and 4-H soil team will represent
South Dakota at the National
Range and Land judging contest in
Oklahoma City, Okla., the first
week of May 2014.
The Livestock Industry Trust
Fund, through the state 4-H organ-
ization, sponsors a significant por-
tion of the travel costs for these
students to attend.
“Rangeland is a kind of land, not
a land use. Rangeland is fragile,
yet durable and resilient. Manage-
ment profoundly impacts the simi-
larity index, a measure of range-
land condition that reflects its
value for livestock, wildlife and hu-
mans. The purpose of rangeland
judging is to provide an under-
standing of rangeland resources
and a sense of stewardship in nat-
ural resource management,” said
Ollila, an Extension sheep special-
ist and technical contributor in or-
ganizing the Rangeland Days
Available on the Internet at
2001-2012.pdf is a digital version
of the “Judging South Dakota
Rangelands for Livestock and
Wildlife Values manual.” “This
manual describes a contest with
components that have a strong bi-
ological basis for habitat manage-
ment of both beef cattle and prairie
grouse. Beef cattle have been cho-
sen because they are the most com-
mon livestock species grazed on
South Dakota rangelands. Once
stocking rates are determined for
beef cattle, conversions can be
made to determine stocking densi-
ties of other grazing animals, such
as horses, sheep and goats. Prairie
grouse represent wildlife because
they are affected by management
and have the potential to occur
throughout the state. There are
three primary species of prairie
grouse that inhabit the state: sharp
tailed grouse, prairie chicken, and
sage grouse. Management can
achieve many desired rangeland
uses. Vegetation, livestock, and
wildlife respond in a predictable
manner to range management
practices,” said Ollila.
Soil Days is an opportunity to
learn more about one of the most
important South Dakota resources.
Students will learn how to deter-
mine soil texture, soil depth, past
erosion, slope and stoniness. They
will also learn how to interpret per-
meability, surface runoff and limit-
ing factors. From this information
they will determine the land capa-
bility class. This will allow them to
make recommended treatments for
vegetation and mechanical erosion
control. Fertilization recommenda-
tions will also be determined. Stu-
dents will also learn about home
site evaluation.
Adults who wish to receive either
an undergraduate or graduate
credit for participating in the Soil
Days portion should contact Ollila
at david.ollila@sd state.edu for a
syllabus of the course expectations.
Competition is individual and
team for all age groups. Teams
may consist of three or four mem-
bers from the county 4-H program
or FFA chapter.
A program commemorating the
30th anniversary of Rangeland
Days, along with recognition of in-
dividuals and organizations
thatwere instrumental over the
past 30 years, will be held just
prior to the Tuesday evening meal
at the Kadoka City Auditorium.
The event is hosted by Jackson
County Conservation District,
Haakon County Conservation Dis-
trict, SDSU Extension and Natural
Resources Conservation Service.

As the weather warms up and
the risk of mosquito bites in-
creases, now is the time for South
Dakotans to get in the habit of
using insect repellent to prevent
West Nile Virus.
“Just as we prepare for flu sea-
son each fall, we need to be pre-
pared for the West Nile Virus every
summer,” said Dr. Lon Kightlinger,
state epidemiologist for the South
Dakota Department of Health.
“West Nile Virus can be a serious,
even fatal, illness but the good
news is we can all reduce our risk
with a few simple precautions.”
Kightlinger said people can pre-
vent mosquito bites and reduce
their risk of West Nile by using
mosquito repellents (DEET, pi-
caridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus, or
IR3535) and limit exposure by cov-
ering up. Limit time outdoors from
dusk to midnight when culex mos-
quitoes are most active. Culex are
the primary carrier of West Nile in
South Dakota. Get rid of stand-
ing water that gives mosquitoes a
place to breed. Support local mos-
quito control efforts.
These precautions are especially
important for people at high risk
for complications from West Nile.
This includes individuals over 50,
pregnant women, transplant pa-
tients and people who have dia-
betes, high blood pressure or a
history of alcohol abuse.
Since its first human West Nile
case in 2002, South Dakota has re-
ported more than 2,000 cases, in-
cluding 29 deaths. South Dakota
cases have occurred as early as
June, but peak transmission is
July through early September.

On Saturday, June 1, 2013, at
Somerset Court we had morning
exercises with extra Somerset
Bucks to encourage us to show up
on Saturday. Thank you, Susan.
We had the movie “Cheetah” which
was about a family with a cheetah.
I didn’t go because I was still fed up
with the “Life of Pi,” a story about
a boy shipwrecked with a huge
tiger and they went through many
miseries, and in the end, when the
boy was deeply attached to the
tiger, the tiger walks away without
a nod. Well, I guess the family took
the cheetah out and let it go wild.
It didn’t jump at the chance, it had
to be encouraged.
The book the Rapid City Public
Library sent, “Cutting the Stone,”
started with some strange happen-
ings, and then I thought, I am not
really hooked by this story.
On third floor at Somerset Court,
you should see how Zona Hair-
grave’s hen and chicks is growing.
It looks like it is shooting up for a
bloom! And Zona has a basket with
six pots of desert cacti and succu-
lents. Wilma Keen has two original
greeting cards on her door. They
are in patriotic motif – red, white
and blue, stars and flags. She
makes these charming cards for
birthdays. Did you see the two lit-
tle trees in the alcove outside Irene
Arbach’s apartment? She has them
decorated with many tiny USA
Saturday afternoon, Irene Cox,
Irene Arbach, Floy and Marcella
played a little whist. Susan,
Shirley Hessman, Margaret Jacobs
and Vivian Hansen played a little
five crowns.
My granddaughter, Holly
Hansen Maudsley, is here from
Woodbury, Minn. She came over
for scrabble and ended up with
high score.
On Saturday at Somerset Court,
Mike Kilmer came to play piano for
us. Some of the songs he played
were “Bill Bailey,” “You Are My
Sunshine,” “Somebody Stole My
Gal,” “When the Saints Go March-
ing In,” “Oh, Them Golden Slip-
pers,” “The Old Rugged Cross,” “He
Walks with Me,” “Good Night,
Irene,” “In the Mood,” and others.
Thank you, Mike. Let us make up
a list of songs we would like Mike
to play for us! How about “The
Dark Town Strutters’ Ball?” Or
“America” and “America the Beau-
tiful” And “Happy Birthday, Good
Bless You?”
Eileen Tenold celebrated her
birthday on June 1, it was really on
May 31, by going with her son,
Lester, and his wife, Carla, and two
grandsons, Canon, 10, and L.J.,
eight, to their house in Rapid City.
Carla’s relatives were there too.
Eileen and the boys had a good
game with a big ball. Eileen had
three lovely birthday cards. One
had a picture of a kitten that said,
“Mew, Mew, Happy Birthday!” An-
other gift was a potted golden yel-
low dahlia.
On Sunday, June 2, my grand-
daughter, Sheridan Hansen, with
Tiger and Cecelia, took me along to
their church – Baptist, in the mall.
Thank you, Sheridan. Sheridan
sang with the a group and a guitar
and we could sing along with words
on a big screen above them. It is a
congregation of mostly young fam-
ilies. There is a nursery school and
a Sunday school. There was an
ample supply of doughnuts. Rev-
erend Justin Dancer gave us the
message that, “Obedience precedes
the miracle.” There were biblical
references to John, 8-9. We usually
feel what we should do, then it is
up to us to do it.
We stopped by Sheridan’s house
and I took a photo of Cecelia in
their tree house, built by Granddad
David. Also, it was the first time I
had seen their digging machine
with levers to scoop and move
sand, also built by David.
On June 2, we celebrated M.R.
and Barbara Hansen’s retirement
and going away party. M.R. is re-
tiring from South Dakota School of
Mines and Technology as a profes-
sor of civil engineering. M.R. and
Barbara are leaving June 14 for a

with barbecued hamburgers, hot
dishes, salads, baked beans (best
dish!), fresh vegetables, chips and
dips, punch and drinks and two
huge cakes, one decorated for
M.R.’s retirement and one for a
good journey. The party bunch
sang, “Happy Birthday,” for Vivian
Hansen, hopefully to become 94
years old on June 21, 2013. Thank
A few hardy kids were swim-
ming in the club’s pool. I left with
Wayne and Gwynn before the end
of the party. I believe they would
light a candle for Steve Crawford,
Barbara’s brother who died a cou-
ple of years ago.
June 9 is the South Dakota Quil-
ters Guild Quilt Show at the civic
center. Gwynn said she would take
me to see it on Sunday. Thank you,
Gwynn. Gwynn will help with the
appraisal of quilts, as usual.
On June 4, we had a trip in the
big Somerset Court bus to the First
Assembly of God, a church south of
town to vote for the Rapid City
mayor. We could vote for Mark
Kirkeby or Sam Kooiker. It was a
nice day for a bus ride. Susan is
promoted to driving the big bus.
Sandi was in charge of residents.
Mrs. Bob Brooks, one of the vot-
ing clerks had relatives at Philip.
Floyd and Ivy Brooks were her hus-
band’s parents. This lady has pho-
tos she would like me to look at
and see if I know any of the people
in the photos. Maybe she will come
to Somerset Court some day. I went
to grade school one year with Ivy
(Ellis) Brooks. And I knew Floyd’s
daughter, Jane, and her grandma
and grandpa, Bill and Grace
Hazen, in the Grindstone country.
They were near neighbors of the
Rolla Palmers.
On June 4, I received a letter
from Hazel Thompson. She re-
ported that she had attended the
Memorial Day services at the na-
tional cemetery and it rained most
of the day. The Haakon County
Crooners from Philip sang at the
program. Hazel said that she and
her niece, Cleo, had to stop off and
on their way back to Spearfish on
account of hail, really bad at times.
Thank you for your letter and kind
birthday wishes, Hazel.
In memory of our dear Philip
friend, William Coyle, longtime
professor of civil engineering at
SDSM&T, let us follow his teach-
ing. He stressed legible handwrit-
ing, both in cursive and in
manuscript. Be sure each letter or
numeral looks like no other. The
June 4, Rapid City Journal has an
article about the beauty of the Eng-
lish language to be found in the
Bible. Now many words are coming
up in from technology and from
other languages.
The Rapid City Journal’s Los An-
geles Times daily crossword had a
clue ____ de foie gras. Of course, we
knew that the clue was pate and
maybe we knew it was made
mostly of goose livers. Chicken liv-
ers are often substituted.
M.R. Hansen came for scrabble,
even after moving furniture most of
the day. We had a good game, com-
plete with pretzels. M.R. also
brought some photos I had asked
him to reprint for me, one of me
reading the Pioneer Review. Thank
you, Mig!
At supper time, June 3, Kenneth
Monnett had a bunch of grand-
daughters visiting, one little
enough to ride on Ken’s walker.
On June 5 at Somerset Court we
had resident council. Highlights
were: June 9, ice cream social;
June 10, “Father of the Bride”
movie; June 12, picnic in the park;
June 14, Flag Day, beer and pizza
dinner; 16, Happy Father’s Day!
17, Crazy hat day; 18, Dress up
day; 19, Wear blue; 20, Inside out
and backwards; 21, Dress Hawai-
ian, 6:30 luau; 24, Jerry’s Donuts;
26, Somerset Court auction!
On June 5, we had the summer
fish fry in the courtyard with a big
turnout of residents and visitors.
There was plenty of fish, potato
wedgies, slaw, drinks, including
beer and light wines, and various
ice cream treats. Thanks to Somer-
set Court kitchen staff, activity di-
rectors and Skeeter Boyer and his
On June 6, I walked around the
three sides of the court building
that have sidewalks. There was a
pleasant breeze and it was warm.
The sky was blue with some fluffy
white clouds and some with body. I
was reminded of an old poem by
James Russell Lowell: “Oh, What is
so rare as a day in June, Then if
ever, come perfect days, when
Heaven tries Earth if it be in tune,
and over it softly, her warm ear
lays.” I remember that much from
old times, and Google would not
tell me more.
Thank you for Philip friends who
have written lately – Darlene Baye,
Marlin Evans and Emery Gibson.
Tony Kulesa, M.R. Hansen’s
“right hand man,” and a crew of
civil engineering students from
SDSM&T, recently returned from
Chile, South America. Their suc-
cessful mission there included the
building of two septic tanks and a
drain field at a village west of San-
tiago. It was presented as a learn-
ing project and it will serve as a
model for others to follow.
From George Washington’s,
“Rules of Civility and Decent Be-
havior”: Reprehend not the imper-
fections of others, for that belongs
to parents, masters and superiors.
Gaze not on the marks or blem-
ishes of others and ask not how
they came. What you may speak in
secret to a friend deliver not before
Spring chickens are coming!

Weather-wise, we got another
inch of rain with all the showers
this week – what a blessing we re-
ceived from all the rain! Every-
thing looks so green and my yard
needs another mowing. I think I
only mowed it once last year. I did
let it grow up more this year, so
would have a good start before I cut
it. It is so strange to see water come
over the spillways every time it
rains. I have a little garden tractor
I can ride, so mowing goes quite
well for me and then I just use the
push mower to trim. Grandchil-
dren come and help me and at this
time, Carla’s kids are staying for
awhile, so if I am in need of help
they come down and help. Colby is
really good help and will come as I
need him.
Sunday afternoon, I took Kiley
and Taegan up to go fishing with
the Fitches and I tried my luck,
also, but my arms soon got tired
after casting out for a couple hours
and it was hard to reel them in, but
I did catch a few. It was fun just to
watch the grandkids fish and how
happy they were to catch a fish. It
was, “Come quick, I got one!” from
Raylor who is four and Jensen who
is seven, as the older ones would
have to take it off the hook for them
to avoid a hook stick.
That was not the case for Colby,
who had helped me for over an
hour and decided he would do some
fishing for himself. He was not out
long in the boat and somehow ran
a hook in his finger and the day
ended with taking him to the emer-
gency room at Philip to have it re-
moved. He stated today that it feels
okay but will take some time to
I know how he felt as I sewed
through my index finger with a
treadle Singer sewing machine and
had to back it up with the wheel to
get loose and then Mom put Denver
Mud on it and wrapped it up and it
was sore, but it did heal. I still have
a faint scar from it. At that time,
Denver Mud was used a lot. I won-
der if they still have it?
Well, Mike and Debbie Clements
were happy to receive word from
Kenny and Erica and little sister,
Elliot Clements, that they have a
new baby boy. Rylan Matthew was
born Friday, June 7, at 2:08, weigh-
ing 8 lbs., 3 oz. and 19-1/2 inches
long. Great-Grandmas Theresa
Clements and Donna Newman
were also glad to receive the news.
Congratulations to all, and I also
received another cousin.
Caleb Clements has been coming
home from Chamberlain every
weekend to work on his car, getting
it ready for the demolition derby to
be held in Philip this weekend.
I don’t know how many years he
has been in the derby, but it seems
he had been in it as soon as he was
old enough to participate.
We seem to have several pigeons
around here this year. We think
they originated from the Bev Mc-
Daniel or Thorson place, as I think
they both had pigeons at times
years ago. Anyway, seems they
stay around here now.
Cats. Well, years ago I received a
cat from town. I call him a muffin
cat as he has muffin paws and was
he ever wild! It took two years be-
fore I was able to get near him.
Now he only lets me and Marvin
near him. He runs and hides from
the grandchildren or any other per-
son who comes on the place. I, at
times, think he does not know what
he is, as a mother cat brought up
her kittens and put them in the
shed in my yard and he looks after
them like he is their mom. He even
brings them mice from the barns to
eat. The kittens are not very tame,
but come running when they hear
him meow. I have never seen a
tomcat ever do this before! He is
the dad as two of the kittens look
just like him, but one is golden yel-
low and short haired. Oh well,
maybe cats change like people do,
as the environment and culture
changes, so do the cats. I have al-
ways been amazed by how much
animals know and can learn to
keep up with the times.
We have a two-year-old heifer
that was born blind and she can
find her way back to the barns by
retracing her steps. My dog knows
that, at times, she needs help and
she knows him and he can drive
her to the barn or where we need
her to go. She just seems to trust
him and does what he wants her to
Well, enough about our strange
animals, but it is interesting to just
watch them and know they have
minds to learn and are not dumb
animals as people think. On second
thought, humans are from that do-
main also, and we can act sort of
dumb at times. Mother Nature is
there to guide and help all living
things and we are thankful for
Sympathy goes out to the fami-
lies of Linda Kramer. She grew up
in this area and I saw her often
during that time. Kenneth and I
would go out to Tim and Tillie
Long’s throughout the years.
I tried the lettuce that you can
shred and put in a jar with a paper
towel in the bottom and put the lid

Reva Stedman, age 69, Mitchell,
S.D., died Friday, June 7, 2013,
surrounded by her family, in the
Comfort Care Section of Avera
Queen of Peace Hospital in
Mitchell after a three-year, three-
month courageous battle with pan-
creatic cancer.
Reva Dianne Riddell was born
December 18, 1943, in Philip to
Howard and Eva (Smith) Riddell.
They lived 15 miles northwest of
Philip on the homestead her dad's
parents had claimed. She attended
Haakon County country school
grades one through six, at which
time the school was closed. She
then boarded with her grand-
mother, Dorothy Smith, in Philip
while she attended Philip schools,
grades seven through 12. After
graduation, she attended Dakota
Wesleyan University in Mitchell,
graduating with a bachelor of arts
degree in 1966. She taught at
Mitchell Senior High School the fol-
lowing two years.
She married Richard Stedman
of Mitchell on June 5, 1966, at
Philip. They had a son, Russell,
and a daughter, Rochelle. They
lived in Mitchell until 1973, at
which time they moved to Colum-
bus, Neb. They lived there four
years at which time they returned
to Mitchell so Richard could accept
a job as a teacher at Mitchell Tech-
nical Institute.
After the birth of their children,
Reva became a full-time housewife
and mother until they were both in
school. She worked part-time for
the Mitchell school hot lunch pro-
gram for three years. She then got
a full-time job at the Shopko store
in Mitchell where she continued
working for 20 years. After retire-
ment from Shopko, she went back
to a part-time position with the
Mitchell Public Schools hot lunch
program at L.B. Williams for three
She enjoyed volunteering at the
Dakota Discovery Museum, her
church and delivering Meals on
Wheels. Her family always came
first. She was a faithful member of
the First United Methodist Church
including being an active member
of the Eunice Circle and UMW
most of her life. She held the office
of president, secretary and treas-
urer several times over the years.
She also enjoyed learning to quilt
with the Methodist quilters.
She loved her role as a wife and
mother, caring for their home and
family. Her hobbies were flower
gardening, sewing, reading and
traveling after retirement. She and
her husband enjoyed touring the
United States by bus, plus a few
ocean cruises.
The loves of her life were her
husband of 47 years, Rich; her chil-
dren, Russ Stedman and his wife,
Solvei, of Sioux Falls, and Rochelle
Sailer and her husband, Shannon,
and her two grandsons, Jacob
Sailer and Jared Sailer, of Rapid
City. Other family members are
her brother, Alan Riddell and his
wife, Deb of West Allis, Wis.; her
sister-in-law, Georganne Sorenson
of Pierre; her mother-in-law, De-
lores Stedman; and numerous
nieces, nephews, and cousins.
She was preceded in death by
her parents and father-in law, Leo
Stedman, and mother-in-law, Mar-
guerite Stedman.
Funeral services were held June
12, 2013, at the First United
Methodist Church in Mitchell.
Burial was in Servicemen’s Me-
morial Cemetery in Mitchell.
Memorials may be given to the
First United Methodist Church

venile Diabetes Research Founda-
tion or Pancreatic Cancer
Arrangements were under the
direction of the Bittner Funeral
Chapel in Mitchell.
Reva Stedman_________________________________
Jill Alfaro, age 57, of Philip,
S.D., died Thursday, June 6, 2013,
at the Hans P. Peterson Memorial
Hospital in Philip.
Jill Ann Fitch was born October
24, 1955, in Kadoka, the third of
three daughters to Lewis E. “Bud”
and Dorothy (Hansen) Fitch.
Jill graduated from Philip High
School in 1973.
She and her mother purchased
the 11-Mile Corner station. It was
there she honed her pitch and pool
playing abilities.
Jill traveled with her sister,
Diane, and two friends to Rome,
Italy, for the Holy Year Celebration
of 1975.
In the early 1980s, she and a
good friend, Paula Erdmann,
moved to Amarillo, Texas, to work
for Ike and Florence Dale at their
Husky Truck Stop. It was during
this time that she married Juan
Tomás Alfaro.
After she and her daughter re-
turned to Philip, she worked for the
box factory before going to work at
the local grocery store. She contin-
ued to work there until her death.
Jill loved nothing more than
being outside on a warm day, even
those unbearably hot South Dakota
days where even the breeze is blaz-
ing. She just loved the feeling of the
sun hitting her skin. Nothing was
better than being able to mow or
even spend the day reading a good
or terrible book, depending on
whether you liked Stephen King or
some juicy suspense, with a cold
beer in one hand and a bottle of sun
tan lotion in the other.
Her house was always filled
with music! From golden oldies to
some good old country; as long as it
was loud, it didn't matter. She was-
n't much of a singer, as anyone will
tell you, but she was one helluva
Jill cared deeply for every child
in her family, but for sure she had
a special place in her heart for the
Sloveks, Kash, Kaydence,and
Karli, and they sure filled her
heart with so much joy in the hard-
est months of her life. Although she
is gone, they can always count on
Grandma Jill to be watching.
Jill taught us many things with-
out having to try too hard. For in-
stance, she taught us to strive to
emulate a balance of strength and
compassion, dignity and a love of
mischief, but most importantly she
taught us to never take life too se-
riously and to just be happy with
the life you've got.
Survivors include her daughter,
Dorothy Ann Alfaro, and her fi-
ancé, Kyle Hoemke, of Philip; two
sisters, Diane Fitch and Marianne
Frein and her husband, Lloyd, all
of Philip; nephews, Tadd Moriarty
of Chicago, Ill., Vance (Anissa) Mo-
riarty of Manhattan, Kan., Jacob
Frein (Melissa) of Rapid City,
Patrick (Amanda) Moriarty of
Rapid City, and Ian Moriarty of
Rapid City; nieces, Mikal (Rian)
Rasmussen of West Des Moines,
Iowa, and Laura (Bruce) Potter of
Brandon; a grandniece, Eliza Pot-
ter; grandnephews, Brodi Mori-
arty, Finn and Donovan Moriarty,
Colt and Carson Frein, Graham
Rasmussen, and Wyatt Potter; and

A Trip for Two
While on vacation, an old couple

After they got back on the road and
had traveled some distance, the
wife realized she had left her pre-

Midland News
Woke up to an absolutely beau-
tiful morning this 10th day of June
2013! It’s one of those mornings
that makes you happy to be alive!
And the birds, well, they are just
plumb happy, as they merrily chirp
out a tune. Speaking of birds! The
other day one of those black birds
that we all seem to have in our
yard, was up in the tree across the
street scolding Susie Martin’s cat.
Down that bird flew buzzing
Susie’s cat, back in the tree it con-
tinued to scold that cat. Next thing,
down it flew, going after Susie’s
cat. The cat gave a switch of its tail
and kept on walking. Guess the
bird decided it wasn’t getting any-
where, so, giving one last scold off
it flew. I have a feeling news is
going to be rather scarce this week,
as people I’ve called tell they really
don’t have any news. With the won-
derful rains we’ve had they are
busy mowing, planting, weeding
the garden etc.
When asking Sophie Foley
about news, with enthusiasm she
reported she had had a productive
weekend getting a number of
things done in her yard. She has a
huge yard, a nice yard, and when
you work full-time it’s a good feel-
ing to have a weekend when things
click and projects get done.
Barb Jones and Judy Daly went
to Rapid City on Saturday, meeting
up with friends and all going to the
musical “Celtic Woman.” They re-
ported the music was absolutely
beautiful as this group from Ire-
land sang out in their Irish brogue
delighting the crowd with dance
and music. Judy said they drove
through a downpour on the way to
Rapid. Other then that, they said
they didn’t have much else to re-
port. Judy said her grandkids con-
tinue to enjoy our former trailer
house. They’ve made themselves
quite at home in that trailer house
and now with warmer tempera-
tures open the windows while
watching movies on TV at what I
call their “bachelor pad.” The story
goes they even vacuum and do
other things and are thinking an
overnight stay might be fun. At the
moment the trailer sits in the yard
near where Carson (9) and Dane
(7) live on the farm with their par-
ents Steve and Julie Daly, with
Grandma Judy, living nearby.
When time allows it will be moved
to its destination a bit further
away. I’ve been having a lot of fun
over the stories Judy and Julie
share of those kids and that trailer
Barb Jones and Pat Snook was
hostesses for Altar Society on
Wednesday, June 5. The meeting
was held at the church as plans
were to do a good cleaning washing
pews and walls etc. It’s a big job,
but feels good and smells good
when you are done.
I was visiting by phone with
Jenna Finn about their Deadwood
Mickelson Trail team marathon
run Sunday, June 2. The other two
from this Midland area were Katie
Sammons and Julie Daly. She re-
ports it was fun to run a relay
marathon, giving you a chance to
cheer on your teammates. As some
of you know, the other two making
up the team were Jodi Roseth and
Jeanine Gabriel up north-way from
Midland. Good job girls! When ask-
ing Jenna about her news for the
week, she said between yard work
and things to do on the farm, base-
ball practice and baseball games,
they’ve gotten in some fishing. She
was excited to report there were 25
kids at the first summer reading
program last Wednesday. The sum-
mer reading program will be each
Wednesday morning for the month
of June and is sponsored by the
Midland Community Library. Li-
brarian Karel Reiman reports the
library is a busy place on those
days as kids come to check out
books and movies before heading
home. It is exciting to see kids
make use of reading books.
It was a beautiful evening for
Midland Market at the city park
last Friday! Making it even nicer
was having a chance to visit with
Pat Willoughby of Evanston, Wyo.
She graduated from Midland high
school with the class of 1973. She
and her daughter, Tess, were visit-
ing Pat’s folks, Wallace and Irene
Willoughby, and her brothers, Jeff
and Julie Willoughby and Tony
and Gaynold Willoughby. Her hus-
band stayed at home to keep the
home fires burning. Pat, Tess and
Irene decided to come to Midland
Market having a bite to eat, seeing
the different tables with wares for
sale and Pat having a chance to see
folks she knew. Pat continues to di-
rect the community plays at
Evanston each year and she also
teaches college classes over the in-
ternet. What’s that saying, “Have
lap top can travel?” That’s exactly
what you can do with that type of
job; you can do it wherever you are;
as long as you have internet access,
of course. Tess has finished her
first year at Ogden College at
Ogden, Utah. Making it nice,
Ogden is about an hour’s drive
from home.
Also at Midland Market were
Karen (Root) Helmer and her hus-
band Eldon of Tucson, Ariz. Karen
graduated from Midland High
School with the class of 1961 and
was the daughter of the late
Clarence and Margarite Root. They
were in Midland visiting Karen’s
brother, Jim Root, and his wife,
Jessie, and other family members.
Most folks know of Jim's love for
gardening. He reports his garden is
doing well this summer and told of
the radishes his dad used to grow.
He would have bags and bags of
radishes. From the sounds of
things, Karen was enjoying Jim’s
radishes from the garden. I did
enjoy having a chance to visit with
them. A number of years ago, Jerry
and I were in Arizona visiting folks
we knew who spent their winters
in Arizona. We stopped to visit
Karen and Eldon, who at that time,
lived in Oracle, Ariz. Karen and
Eldon are grandparents so excited
about that.

Speaking of family being to-
gether, I was talking by phone with
Darlene (Foster) Knight the other
day. She got to talking about her
parents, Fred and Mabel Foster,
who as many know, had lived in
Midland and raised their family in
Midland. Fred and Mabel passed
away a number of years ago, Fred
a number of years before Mabel.
There were 10 kids in the family,
Orville passed away some years
ago, but the other nine are looking
forward to being together at the
Midland City Park on June 22, and
sure would enjoy seeing other folks,
as well.
On June 2, Lani Olson and her
eight-year-old daughter, Molly, of
Devil’s Lake, N.D., came to the
home of her folks, Jerry and Joy
Jones, spending part of the sum-
mer, giving Molly time with her
cousins. Lani went back to Devil’s
Lake for a week of schooling. Molly
chose to stay on the farm with
grandpa and grandma. Lani
teaches kids with special needs
during the school year.
On June 2, Gene and Audrey
Jones drove to Rapid City where
they picked up daughter Paula
Jones. Audrey and Paula took part
in the Crazy Horse Volkswalk. It
was a beautiful day and a beautiful
walk. Reports are that from the
arm the view was fabulous. They
returned home on Monday.
Friday, June 5, Gene and Au-
drey Jones again went to Rapid
City. After spending the night with
Julie and Jer Whitcher on Satur-
day, Gene watched daughter
Paula's softball team play in a tour-
nament. Audrey enjoyed spending
the day with daughter, Julie
Midland Pioneer Museum
The Midland Museum board
met at the museum on June 4 to
uncover the displays and clean the
museum and get it ready for its
summer tour of duty. We were for-
tunate to have Amy Hulce and Kim
Bierle come to help us, and we do
thank them for their help. It was
needed and appreciated.
After the cleaning was done, we
had a lunch of cookies, apple bread
and lemonade to refresh ourselves
and then had a short meeting. All
the members were present except
for Jessie Root. After Shorty Woitte
called the meeting to order, the
minutes of the last meeting were
read and approved. Treasurer
Linda Sinclair gave the treasurer’s
report. Jim Root was appointed to
take the place of Mahlon Alcock,
who had resigned. Jessie Root was
appointed to take the place of Lois
Hall as secretary.
We discussed what to do about
the floor in the school house, which
needs repair. Linda Sinclair and
George Anderson moved the school
desks to cover the weak place in
the floor. Shorty will try to find
someone who can repair it. Linda
said that Reuben Vollmer offered
to spray the weeds again, if the mu-
seum would pay for the spray and
it was agreed to do this and we
thank him for his help. We dis-
cussed what to do with the old ma-
chinery that had been loaned to the
museum. It was decided to ask the
loaners to get their machinery or to
put it up on blocks, as it is falling
We had an offer to paint the
school house. He will scrape, prime
and paint it. George Anderson
moved to accept the offer. Linda
Sinclair seconded it and the motion
passed. Amy Hulce volunteered to
paint the sign on the out building
if the museum would buy a new
board and pay for the paint and
supplies needed. It was agreed to
do this. Meeting adjourned.

Time to close my column for this
week and get back to getting ready
for company coming later in the
week! Our daughter, Charlene, is
coming from Bismarck, N.D., for a
few days visit. During the Scotty
Philip Days, Charlene will have a
picture show presentation, sharing
the history of those pictures from
her Russian trip last summer, at
the Bad River Senior Citizens Cen-
ter in Philip on Saturday, June 15
from 3:00-4:00. Charlene turns the
big ‘50’ on June 21, so family mem-
bers are planning on coming this
weekend to help her celebrate. Will
have more on that next week! The
day warmed up enough to turn on
the air conditioning for a while.
Looks like some clouds are form-
ing, haven’t listened to the weather
forecast, but someone said we are
supposed to be getting some rain.
We are in need of more rain in
some areas, so that will be a good
thing. Need to keep that green
grass growing! Jerry and I went for
one of our drives the other day. We
went south from Kadoka towards
Martin and what a beautiful drive
it was with the Badlands and green
grasses in the distance. We drove
on towards Mission, turning off on
the road to White River, going on to
Murdo. We had a late lunch at a
local café at Murdo and got to vis-
iting with a couple, Dee and Mary
Kay Raben of Detroit, Michigan.
Come to find out, Dee is the son of
Bernice Raben, Philip, and the
brother of Gaynold Willoughby,
Midland, and Meredith Pauly,
Philip. They were going to Philip to
see Dee’s mom and were hoping to
see as many family as they could
before going to Texas to see Dee’s
brothers, Johnny and Tom. Dee
and Mary Kay have a cottage in
Kingsville, Ontario, which is in the
most southern town of Canada.
Mary Kay’s mom had it to begin
with, so she has many memories of
that cottage. They enjoy those
times spent at that cottage. It was
interesting to visit with Dee and
Mary Kay about family and others
that we know also.
I leave you with a bit of advice
from Jerry’s Amish magazine,
“When you are right you can afford
to keep your temper. When you are
wrong, you can’t afford to lose it.”
Have a good day and a good week!

The OH-58 Kiowa helicopter has
served in the United States Army
since 1969, and served nearly two
decades as a part of the South
Dakota Army National Guard's in-
ventory. The OH-58 made its final
flight Friday, May 31, at the Rapid
City Regional Airport and marked
the end of this aircraft's service as
a part of the South Dakota Army
National Guard.
The aircraft is being replaced by
the newer LUH-72 Lakota helicop-
ter, which began its service in the
South Dakota Army National
Guard in May 2011.
The Kiowa entered service with
the S.D. Army National Guard in
the fall of 1991, serving the role of
aerial scout and forward observer
platform as part of the 137th Avia-
tion. Two detachments of the 137th
were formed in Rapid City at its
Army Aviation Support Facility:
Detachment 4, 2/137th Aviation
and Detachment 2, Company A,
2/137th Aviation. These units were
commanded by Chief Warrant Of-
ficer 4 Thomas Sikorski and Chief
Warrant Officer 4 Wesley Barnes.
“The 58's were intended to re-
place our OH-6's, but everyone
loved to fly the 6's," said Chief War-
rant Officer 4 (ret.) Frank Effen-
berger, pilot. "We flew the 6's until
they took them away from us.”
According to Effenberger, the pi-
lots loved the OH-6, but the pas-
sengers preferred the OH-58. “Tall
passengers had to hunch over in
the back seat of the OH-6, but the
OH-58 had a lot more head room,”
he said.
The OH-58 served five years be-
fore initially leaving the S.D. Army
National Guard’s service in August
of 1996.
The Kiowa returned to service in
the South Dakota Guard in May
2002. The state received two OH-
58 aircraft with the newly formed
Reconnaissance and Aerial Inter-
diction Detachment (RAID) unit.
The primary mission of the RAID
unit was to provide support for law
enforcement agencies for counter-
narcotics operations. These Kiowas
were fitted with infrared cameras
and powerful spotlights in order to
fulfill this role.
"This is the second time we have
retired the '58's in South Dakota,"
said Chief Warrant Officer 4 Ken-
neth East, former RAID com-
The Kiowa flew numerous
counter narcotics, search and res-
cue and public event missions since
2002, which is a testament to the
legacy of the aircraft serving in the
counter narcotics role. The May 31
flight was symbolic, circling the
Rapid City Regional Airport one
last time before retiring the air-

The Saturday Evening Post
writer, Clarence Budington Kel-
land, once said: “My father didn’t
tell me how to live; he lived, and let
me watch him do it.”
The power of example is perhaps
the most challenging and reward-
ing part of parenthood. While both
of my girls are grown now, it
doesn’t seem that long ago that
their big blue eyes were watching
my every move. This seemed to be
particularly true at the times that
I wasn’t feeling especially patient
or friendly. It was on those occa-
sions that I would think back to
how my dad, who always under-
stood the power of example, would
handle himself in similar situa-
Growing up with four siblings,
there was never a shortage of ac-
tion around our home. However,
my dad was never too busy to in-
dulge us in a game of catch, to plan
our next trip to the fishing hole, or
to make it out to one of our school
events. I enjoyed the quality time I
had with my dad and I respected
that “family first” wasn’t just some-
thing he said, but a philosophy by
which he lived. I also recognized
the authority my father had in the
house, and understood that his
high esteem in the community
came from the way he lived his life
and the respect he showed to those
around him.
The example set by my father is
one that helped shape my values.
He pushed me to demand more
from myself; he called on me to ask
the tough questions, and asked me
to make the tough decisions. I am
part of his legacy just as my two
daughters are part of mine, and
while my daughters are not watch-
ing as intently as they once were, I
know that they continue to watch
to see how my actions match up
with my words.
This Father’s Day is the perfect
opportunity to take time out of our
busy lives to thank our dads, for
the batting practice, for the handy
repairs, for the tough love, and for
the constant example. I wish a very
happy Father’s Day to my dad,
Harold, my father-in-law, Jim, and
to all the fathers across South

“Over South Dakota II” was on
Public Broadcasting, very enjoy-

most of this one too. Well worth the
time to watch.
I told you a week ago that the
Fiedlers would be catching up on
their running around, so here it is.
Sounds like a great vacation. Ralph
and Cathy Fiedler left Sturgis
Monday, May 27, on a cool but sun
shining day. They ran into rain
outside Broadus, Mont., where
they stopped to visit Cathy’s sister,
Sandy Slovek. Her son, Casey, and
grandson, Lane, came by to see
them as well. After a short but good
visit they continued to Billings,
Mont., arriving at Cathy’s dad’s,
Jay and Claire Barnett. They
stayed there until Wednesday
morning then it was on to Mis-
soula, Mont., arriving at Ross
Fiedler’s in the late afternoon.
They drove in cool, rainy weather
all across the state and settled in
for a longer visit with Ross on May
30. Ralph and Cathy stayed with
Ross Fiedler for a week. The whole
time only two days got to the 70s.
Ross was a great host and tour
guide and took them all over to see
the sites. One night, they were in
Idaho for supper at a lodge. Satur-
day, June 1, they spent the day at
Ross’s oldest daughter’s home,
Randy and Darci Nixon and girls.
Gavin and Brandi Hughs from
Providence, Idaho, came over and
spent the day with them all. They
enjoyed visiting and catching up on
family news and a cookout that
evening. Sunday, Ralph, Cathy and
Ross were at the Nixon’s for break-
fast and Cathy spent the day there
while Ross, Ralph and Gavin went
over to Ross’s to put on a screen
Don Moody has been getting the
haying equipment ready with last
minute checks. It looks like the
fields are going to be ready soon to
begin this year’s hay crop. Their
baler had been in for repairs in
town and general check list done
last fall so there probably won't be
any breakdowns at all this year!!!
(Nothing breaks down if it isn’t
used! Note from Marsha) Don and
Vi got the lawns mowed again after
the yards were finally getting dried
out. The grass is really growing
fast now.
Monday, Bill was up early and
went to Howes to do farming. I had
a run to Rapid City with the com-
munity van and got back to Kadoka
in time to meet Ken and Lynn
Hartman for desert at the local
café. They were on their way back
home to Tennessee. Lee Vaughan
stopped in Kadoka after work and
we did some Civil Air Patrol re-
ports. Bill got in a good day’s work
but left his phone in the tractor, oh
how spoiled we are to be able to
reach out and touch someone so
Jody Gittings was out to help
George Gittings work on getting
the corrals ready for branding one
Monday, June 3, Ross, Ralph and
Cathy Fiedler headed for Glazer
Park, enjoying the sights along the
way. They stayed in a cabin on
Monday night with a friend of
Ross’s. Tuesday, June 4, they were
headed for Glazer Park but could
only go as far as Lake McDonald
Lodge because the highway was
still closed due to the snow. There
is lots of snow on the mountains
yet. It was a beautiful drive. Got
back into Missoula late afternoon,
unpacked the car and freshened up
and went to the Nixon home for a
cookout in celebration of Randy
Nixon’s birthday.
Wednesday, June 5, Ralph and
Cathy Fiedler packed up the car,
said their goodbyes and turned to-
ward home. The drive back was a
sunshiny day so they could really
see everything they missed going
out with all the rain and clouds.
They called it a night at Sheridan,
Wyo., then drove the rest the way
home on Thursday, June 6. A great
trip and a lot of miles covered. They
had 4.5 inches of rain in Sturgis
from Tuesday, May 28, through
Friday, May 31. Ralph tackled the
yard, which was a jungle, over the
Don and Vi Moody left Thursday
afternoon for Rapid City to spend a
few days and work on projects in
the garage up there. They did some
shopping that evening and Vi got
her vacuuming done early this
time. Friday they drove through
the Hills and had shrimp fest
(being the usual on Friday) at
Deadwood and visited with folks
around there that they usually see.
They drove back into Rapid in a
rain but only had about .15” at the
Valley place. They saw a lot of vin-
tage cars that were all lined up
near Baken Park in west Rapid
when they got their car washed out
that way Saturday evening. They
had a chance to drive by them on
their way by but got into all the
construction on Jackson Boulevard
that they almost missed the car
Thursday, I made a trip to Philip
with the community van. Kay Ains-
ley met me with some material I
needed. In the afternoon Bernd
Hillman from Fairfax, Minn./Ger-
many came by the house for a visit.
He and wife, Karin, and Karin’s
brother and friend from Germany
were being tourists. I went to
Howes and took things up for Bill
and spent the night. Two empty
pop liters on the counter are a clue
to get more, so I went to the Howes
store and got a couple of full ones.
I mentioned to Bob Hansen that
after 50 years, you sort of read the
signs. He pointed to a big bunch of
red roses (not sure if there were 50
or not, but a bunch) and said he
and Lavonne had in 50 years on
the 2nd of June. Good job! He also
said he’d told Lavonne he’d take
her to Hawaii on their 50th and on
their 75th he’d go back and get her!
She wondered why he was going to
pick her up so soon? I spent the
night with Bill, returning home
Friday morning in time to take a
run with the little van to Rapid
City. While returning the individ-
ual to the care center I ran into
Alice Williams and asked if she
wanted to go flying and she was ex-
cited to go up. We had a nice fly
over the area and went North to
see where Bill was working in the
field. Beautiful landing, then it was
time to get serious and mow the
yard, fourth time so far. Tony
Harty stopped by and caught up on
reading the papers and Phyllis
Word also visited and picked up
Saturday evening, June 8, Ralph
and Cathy Fiedler joined the Don
Klumb family and Quinn, Sue and
Shannon Regan for a cookout sup-
per at the Eric Hanson home in
Spearfish to help Elsie Hanson cel-
ebrate her 12th birthday. After the
opening of birthday gifts and cake
and ice cream Ralph and Cathy
headed for home. Beautiful week-
end with temps in the 70s in the
Saturday morning, I met the
Hillmann’s at a local restaurant
and visited. Bill came home since it
had rained at Plainview, we only
had .10” overnight and another
tenth fell in the afternoon. Tim
Modde and Lee Vaughan picked
me up in the morning and we went
to Winner for a meeting of the
South Dakota Pilots Association
and on the way home visited Myra
Christensen who is helping her son
Jordan and family redo an older
home that is close to Myra’s
brother, Jack, at the junction of
Hwys. 18 and 44. We browsed
around and saw a lot of work that
has been done and lots more that
needs to be done but definitely they
are gaining. On the way home I dis-
covered one tick on Tim, he found
another for sure and went search-
ing for a third. Just a word to the
wise, keep an eye open for those lit-
tle devils, we weren’t in the grass
over 20 minutes. I got out in Murdo
and Bill came and picked me up
and we went for supper at Lower
Brule. The crops really look good in
that area for the most part.
Sympathy is sent to the family of
Jill (Fitch) Alfaro.
Branding took place at the
George Gittings' Sunday. Part of
the crew had plans for the after-
noon so only Henry Hanson, Pee
Wee and Peggy Hook, Doug Frein,
Jody Gittings, Ed Morrison and
Jessica and Kelsey Gittings had
Sunday, Bill and I went to break-
fast and again visited with Bernd
and Karin Hillmann. L.T. Works
and Judy DeWitt arrived in the af-
ternoon to settle in for a couple of
months. L.T. will be helping Terry
Buchert wherever needed. Bill
went back to Howes after supper,
he left the field with a flat tire on
the tractor and nobody to fix it
until Monday so he needed to be
there. Deer horns are raising cain
with tractor tires this year.
We expected a great grandson
Thursday since labor was induced
for Cori Barber but nothing hap-
pened so she went home and the
little fellow was just not ready to
make an appearance. However,
word came this Monday, the 10th
of June that Raiden Seager is offi-
cially here, weighing in at 8 lbs. 11
oz. Mom and baby are doing fine.
As I pecked away on the type-
writer to do this news, I was re-
minded of an article in the Readers
Digest about “cursive” writing and
the fact that we have a generation
of people that not only cannot write
cursive but cannot read it either.
Granted, some writing is difficult
to read but even printed things are
hard. Typing is better because at
least each letter is legible. Those of
us that had penmanship appreciate
a neat cursive handwriting. Maybe
“Reading, Writing and Rithmatick”
will be reborn in the schools.

Midland Area Emergency Services hosted the Simulation In
Motion – South Dakota truck, May 29, at the Midland Fire
Hall. Hayes first responders and Kadoka ambulance person-
nel were in attendance, along with Midland ambulance per-
sonnel and the Midland Volunteer Fire Department. According
to information supplied by Lola Roseth, this truck carries
state-of-the-art training with a mock ambulance and emer-
gency room. Many prehospital and hospital emergency care
personnel in South Dakota only encounter a critically ill or crit-
ically injured patient once or twice a year. SIM-SD is a one-
of-a-kind mobile education program designed to have
providers encounter a similar 'patient' multiple times with fo-
cused feedback in a managed stress environment. The pa-
tients are some of the most technologically advanced training
tools available to the medical community today. These
human-like, computerized mannequins are human patient
simulators. They are crucial in helping emergency care personnel improve their skills as providers, communicators and
team members, which positively impacts patient care for everyone. The office of Rural Health, Department of Health ad-
ministers this statewide educational program. In the middle photo is Troy Thompson, instructor with the SIM truck along
with Darrel Brimm, explaining the use of the mannequins and their life-like injuries. They even talk and make noises appro-
priate to their injuries. Shown with Thompson are, from left, Todd Mortensen, Don Garrity and Dodie Garrity from Hayes
first responders. Pictured at top are members of the Midland and Kadoka fire and ambulance and the Hayes first respon-
ders. Back row, from left: Rock Gillaspie, Joy Schmidt, Todd Mortensen, Lura Kirkpatrick, Dodie Garrity, Sally Ehlers, Kathy

Simulation in Motion visits Midland
Teens from Philip, Kadoka and
Wall areas have come together
again to make an American Legion
baseball team.
The 14- to 18-year-old members
of the Philip Post #173 team have
already put two doubleheaders
under their belts. On Saturday,
June 1, they challenged the Pied-
mont Post – St. Thomas More –
team, which had already won the
high school state baseball tourna-
ment this year. “They’re a pretty
good club,” said Philip coach Kory
Foss. “We had a rough first inning,
but we did pretty well after that”
Philip lost the two games.
On June 8, Post #173 traveled to
Belle Fourche to win the first game
12-4, then lose the second game 3-
9. Foss said doubleheaders are
done with the first game being
seven innings and the second being
five innings.
When it comes to practices, “We
kind of play it by ear,” said Foss.
“We have kids from all over the
place and try to work it to what the
kids can do.”
When it comes to travel, “We’re
on our own,” said Foss. “There
aren’t many Class B teams left. We
don’t even know who’s going to be
in our region this year. It’s hard for
a Class B to find games. You have
to travel quite a bit.
“This is our third year I’ve been
with them. We’ve progressively
gotten better each year. Hopefully
this will be our best year yet. We
have a lot of good kids, on and off
the field. It’s a fun group,” Foss
The players include two from
Philip – Avery Johnson and Riley
Heltzel. Two more are from Wall –
Cass Lytle and Trevor Anderson.
The rest of this year’s team are
from the Kadoka area – Aaron
Janis, A.J. Bendt, Chandlier Sud-
beck, Clint Stout, Jed Brown, Nick
Young, Zac Stone, Storm Wilcox,
and Bubba Young from White
The game schedule for Post #173
is still tentative toward the end of
the season. All are doubleheaders,
except if noted, or tournaments.

that played at the governor’s lunch-
eon and last session. “My director
pointed at me and I got to play a
solo in front of everyone ... the
speakers, the state members and
legionnaires ... they started clap-
ping to it, clapping and whooping
and hollering.”
Young men and women in Jour-
nalism City covered the events of
the session, reported on and
recorded the proceedings, and pub-
lished a daily newspaper. Indi-
rectly, Hand was part of this, as
her city’s public relations director.
“This person basically was the in-
sider of the city and made sure she
got any funny stories that had hap-
pened and reported information
back to Journalism City for the in-
formation to be printed in the
paper. I ran for this position and
won, it was a very fun job,” said
Hand. “I also made sure I stepped
outside of my comfort zone and
wasn't so shy! I met so many girls
that I will be lifelong friends with
Pfeifle was voted in as mayor of
his city, Houston. “I ran for the
House of Representatives for the
state, and I was that, too. I just got
to know the guys and felt comfort-
able,” said Pfeifle.
Brucklacher was impressed by
the guest speakers, which included
Senator John Thune, Representa-
tive Kristi Noem, Attorney General
Marty Jackley and Governor Den-
nis Daugaard.
A humorous aspect of one elec-
tion stayed with Hand. One may-
oral candidate stated that she was
a good leader and could herd the
constituancy around like cattle,
and later won the election. “Our
city was one of the closest groups
there, which made the whole expe-
rience so much more enjoyable!
The rest of the week our city be-
came known as the ‘group of cows.’
So the most fun aspect of Girls
State for me was being so lucky as
to have been in a group that was
very outgoing and not afraid to be
“I would say to do it!,” said Pfei-
fle. “It’s probably one of the best
things I’ve done in my life ... it’s
definitely worth it.”

Career and Technical Student
Organization officers from around
the state met at the Mitchell Tech-
nical Institute, June 3-4, for lead-
ership training.
Twenty-six state officers repre-
senting Skills USA, FFA, Family,
Career and Community Leaders of
America (FCCLA), Future Busi-
ness leaders of America (FBLA)
and Delta Epsilon Chi and Distrib-
utive Education Clubs of America
(DECA) were in attendance. South
Dakota Department of Education
and the Division of Curriculum,
Career, and Technical Education
sponsored the event, while leader-
ship trainer Nick Palkowski pre-
sented the workshop.
Students participated in a vari-
ety of team building activities to
enhance their leadership skills.
Business professionals talked with
students on how to improve com-
munication between youth and
adults. The state officers and their
advisers attended an etiquette din-
ner Monday evening at The Brig
where students learned the finer
points on how to be courteous and
respectful at business dinners. The
state officers came away with in-
creased leadership and communi-
cation skills to use in their
respective officer positions during
the upcoming year.
Gavin Brucklacher from the
Philip FCCLA chapter attended.
He is currently serving as the first
vice-president on the South Dakota
FCCLA Executive Council. He will
represent District IX at the state
level. Brucklacher, along with the
other nine state officers, will attend
the FCCLA National Leadership
Conference in Nashville, Tenn., in
July. There, as they represent
South Dakota at the national level,
they will network with other state
officers from around the nation.

OId Business:
Council went onto review the tabled ac-
cess road permit presented by Dale Mor-
rison with D&T Auto Parts.
Mayor Vetter reported that he along with
the Street Committee met with Dean Van-
DeWiele and another representative from
the SD Dept. of Transportation (DOT);
and, property owners Jerry Kroetch with
Scotchman Ìndustries and Dale Morrison.
The discussion included that of the ease-
ments that were located dating back to
1936 for the drainage area which the DOT
confirmed are still in effect.
During the meeting, Mr. VanDeWiele
voiced his main concern, that being, that
Scotchman's improvements over the last
several years have encroached upon the
water way easements with the least of
concerns at this time being Morrison's
road access permit. Ìn turn, the DOT has
advised the City that no permits will be is-
sued until a hydraulic study is completed
for this area. The study should consider if
there is substantial enough retention
basin to protect the area downstream
from flooding. The State will require that
the data obtained be submitted to them
for review. Once obtained, the State will
then make their determination as to
whether or not permitting Morrison's road
is acceptable and/or if the easements can
be released.
Vetter further discussed the construction

Proceedings of the
City of PhiIip
JUNE 3, 2013
A regular meeting of the Philip City Coun-
cil was held on Monday, June 3, 2013, at
7:00 p.m. in the Community Room of the
Haakon Co. Courthouse. Present were
Mayor Michael Vetter, Finance Officer
Monna Van Lint, Council Members Greg
Arthur, Jennifer Henrie, Jason Harry,
Marty Gartner, Trisha Larson, and Marion
Matt. Also present were Deputy Finance
Officer Brittany Smith, Public Works Di-
rector Matt Reckling, Chief of Police Kit
Graham, Harlan Quenzer with SPN &
Assoc., Del Bartels with the Pioneer Re-
view; and later, Carol Schofield.
Absent: None
Motion was made by Harry, seconded by
Gartner to approve the agenda as pre-
sented. Motion carried.
Motion was made by Matt, seconded by
Harry to approve the minutes of the last
meeting as published in the Pioneer Re-
view. Motion carried.
Mayor Vetter questioned the bill from
Hawkins, Ìnc., inquiring if the amount due
was only for the purchase of pool chemi-
cals? Ìt was reported that of the amount
of the WPA dam in the 1930's and SD
Highways being constructed in the 1950's
in this area. Ìn addition, the dams on
Moos' property north of the drainage area
as being an asset in helping control the
flood waters entering the drainage area.
He then noted that Mr. VanDeWiele had
contacted Broz Engineering in Pierre for
a hydraulic study cost estimate. This was
provided as a guide to the City and is es-
timated at $5,000 to $10,000. Vetter
stated that in visiting with the City's Engi-
neer, Harlan Quenzer with SPN & Assoc.,
they would like more information on the
State's recommendations as to what ex-
actly this hydraulic study should include
prior to providing a cost estimate.
Mr. Quenzer elaborated on Vetter's state-
ment, stating that the water shed can be
determined through maps, but they would
need to know what event to base the
study on. For example, does the State
want the study based on a 5, 10, 25, or
100 year flood event? He currently has an
email into the State and once this is pro-
vided, they can proceed with a cost esti-
mate to complete the study. He also
noted that if the study is not that in depth,
the SPN's engineering estimate would be
comparable with what was estimated by
Council Member Gartner stated that dur-
ing the meeting with the DOT, they re-
ported that the culverts under SD Hwy 14
are designed for a 25 year event.
Mr. Quenzer stated that with that informa-
tion, the Council will also need to deter-
mine how extensive they would prefer the
study. For instance, consider the storage
and retention areas that are already in
place, the secondary channels, the max-
imum amount of water flow through the
channels, and/or the fill and discharge
rates. Ìn his opinion, the fill and discharge
rates as well as the overflow channels on
the south side of SD Hwy 14 will help de-
termine if the easements are still needed
in this area.
Council Member Matt then questioned if
we need to consider Moos' dams in the
study. Mr. Quenzer stated that it may be-
hoove the City to determine what benefit
they serve by determining how much they
slow the water flow into the drainage
Council Member Arthur questioned if
Moos' dams are found to be necessary
for flood control in this area and by
chance, they wash out and are not re-
paired ÷ who's liable?
Mr. Quenzer noted that if Moos' dams are
found to be imperative to the City's flood
control, an agreement to repair and re-
store them may be ideal. He recom-
mended the Council review this further
with the City Attorney.
Matt then mentioned the possibility of
starting the study on a small scale to de-
termine if there is sufficient retention area
without taking into consideration Moos'
dams. Ìf not, then proceed with a full
scale study. Ìn his opinion, if we do not
have to include the dams, it may save the
City some liability and cost.
Mr. Quenzer reviewed options for com-
pleting the study, noting that an hourly
basis engineering agreement could be
established. This could start on the small
scale as previously mentioned by Matt,
which would provide a basis for what is
needed with or without the dams. Then if
that does not satisfy the State's intent in
order to release the easements, proceed
with including the dams in the study.
Council Member Larson questioned if the
study determines that a problem has
been created in the current drainage
area, who would be responsible? Ìn addi-
tion, what will the City do with the study?
Matt stated that regardless of the out-
come of the study, the State will have to
determine if they can or cannot release
the easements. Ìn other words, the City's
hands are tied until the study is com-
Mr. Quenzer also mentioned two options
to consider if the study finds that the fill in
the area has adversely impacted the stor-
age basin: one being that of removing the
fill, or two, leave as is and create some
type of emergency spillway or overflow
area. He stressed that the City has vari-
ous options going downstream if the
State's intent is to control flood waters for
a 25 year event.
Mayor Vetter also mentioned Council
Member Gartner's idea to construct a re-
tention pond on the north side of High
Street, where it intersects with Walden
Ave. He also questioned the Council as
to the worst case scenario, would the City
hold Scotchman's responsible for filling in
the water retention easement area?
Mayor Vetter then advised that Council
Member Matt has recommended the City
approach the West River Water District as
they are known for helping fund different
projects such as a hydraulic study. He
stated that in visiting with the District's
Manager, Jake Fitzgerald, these types of
studies are eligible for funding. He then
requested the Council's authorization to
present the City's case to the board for
their consideration at their meeting
scheduled for June 20, 2013. A cost esti-
mate of the study will also need to be sub-
mitted as part of the application process.
Following a lengthy discussion, motion
was made by Arthur, seconded by Gart-
ner to table Mr. Morrison's permit until a
hydraulic study can be completed and the
SD DOT has provided their recommenda-
tions. Motion carried.
By general consensus, Mr. Quenzer was
asked to provide an estimate for both a
smaller based and a more extensive hy-
draulic study. The City will submit the es-
timate for the extensive study with the
application to the West River Water Dis-
trict in the event that that is what will be
required in order to satisfy the SD DOT.
Motion was then made by Harry, sec-
onded by Gartner to authorize Mayor Vet-
ter to apply for funds through the West
River Water District for the hydraulic
study. Motion carried.
Quenzer confirmed that he will provide
the estimates to the City prior to the
Water District's scheduled board meeting
on June 20, 2013.
Mayor Vetter went on to review sample
kennel ordinances obtained from other
communities. He noted that they range
from limiting the number of animals and
licensing kennels to prohibiting kennels.
He stated, "with the ordinances we have
now, they cover the disturbing the peace
and smell complaint that was presented
last month, they just need to be en-
Council Member Larson mentioned one
of the sample ordinances that require ra-
bies vaccinations. Ìt was noted that the
City does have a rabies vaccination ordi-
nances, but owners are not required to
provide proof of the vaccinations to the
City on a continuous basis as this would
require licensing dogs.
Council Member Matt questioned Chief
Graham as to his procedure when he re-
ceives a call for a dog running at large.
Graham stated that if he knows who the
owner of the animal is, he will contact
them. Ìf they cannot be reached, he will
impound the animal. Ìn addition, if the
dogs are caught running at large continu-
ously, the owners will be cited for an ordi-
nance violation. He stated that
impounding a dog or issuing a citation for
dogs does not occur very often.
By general consensus of the Council, the
City will not pursue a kennel ordinance.
New Business:
At 7:15 p.m., as previously advertised, a
public hearing was held on the request of
the following establishments for renewal
of Malt Beverage Licenses for 2013/2014.
Benita Corcoran, Sundowner Bar - On/Off
Sale Malt Beverage; Marty or Debbie
Gartner, Lucky Strike - On/Off Sale Malt
Beverage; MG Oil Company d.b.a. Cor-
ner Pantry #20 - On/Off Sale Malt Bever-
age; Dale or Tami Morrison, Morrison's Pit
Stop - On/Off Sale Malt Beverage; Jason
or Marlis Peterson, Dakota Bar - On/Off
Sale Malt Beverage; Doug West, BMT,
Ìnc., 73 Bar & Lounge - On/Off Sale Malt
Mayor Vetter noted that all of the license
renewal applicants have paid their prop-
erty taxes to date. Chief of Police Kit Gra-
ham also advised that he had no
problems to note regarding the above li-
With no one appearing for or against the
requested license renewals, motion was
made by Matt, seconded by Harry to ap-
prove the renewal of the above Malt Bev-
erage Licenses for 2013/2014 contingent
upon all application fees being submitted.
Motion carried with all members voting
Council reviewed the project status up-
date for the Land Acquisition and Environ-
mental Assessment (LA/EA); and, both
the project and construction status up-
dates for the Medium Ìntensity Runway
Lighting (MÌRL) project as prepared by
Rod Senn, Airport Engineer with Kadr-
mas, Lee and Jackson (KLJ).
PWD Reckling reported that the airport
hydrant was replaced last week as it was
leaking. He is uncertain if the leak con-
tributed to the increase in water use over
the last few months as it only leaked
when it was turned on.
Motion was made by Matt, seconded by
Gartner to approve a Pavement Mainte-
nance Rehabilitation project Categorical
Exclusion (CATEX). This will serve as the
environmental clearance for a pavement
rehabilitation project to include an overlay
of the turnarounds, paving of the access
road and any necessary crack sealing or
isolated asphalt repairs. FAA currently
has this project slated for an engineering
design grant for 2013 and actual con-
struction grant in 2014. Motion carried
with all members voting aye.
Motion was then made by Harry, sec-
onded by Arthur to authorize Mayor Vet-
ter's signature on the above approved
CATEX. Motion carried.
Wood/Walden Ave. Utility and Street Ìm-
prov. Project:
Mr. Quenzer briefed the Council on the
project's process, noting that the contrac-
tor's are currently making a lot of
progress. They have four crews working
today and are expecting another crew to-
morrow. Their plans for this week range
from sub-grading the southern portion of
N. Wood Ave. with hopes of starting the
curb and gutter in this area by the end of
the week. They are also installing storm
sewer on High St. and Walden Ave. this
week with the water and sewer exten-
sions following.
Mayor Vetter questioned if additional on-
site engineers have arrived to help over-
see the additional construction crews?
Quenzer noted that two additional engi-
neers have arrived today and at least one
of them will be staying for the time being.
He stressed that with all the different work
going on, the construction area is very
busy and the additional engineers will
help move the project along further. He
estimates that with the recent rainfalls,
they are approximately a week behind
schedule, but with the additional crews,
they should be able to catch up quickly.
Mayor Vetter also noted that construction
in progress meetings have been sched-
uled for the Thursday prior to a Council
through October 2013. The first of these
meetings was held on May 30, 2013, and
compliments were received from different
property owners regarding the work being
completed by Rosebud Concrete.
Ìt was also reported that during one of the
recent rainfalls, they had water problems
that required pumping the water out of the
area. They are in the process of installing
box drains to assist with any future run-
off during the construction.
Council Member Arthur questioned the
proposed dates for installing curb and
gutter on Walden Ave. Mr. Quenzer noted
this is more than likely two to three weeks
Motion was made by Arthur, seconded by
Henrie to approve Rosebud Concrete,
Ìnc.'s pay request #02 in the amount of
$147,768.82 contingent upon receipt of
all appropriate paperwork required for the
funding agency's approval through the
SRF program and authorize the Mayor's
signature on the SRF drawdown #2. Mo-
tion carried with all members voting aye.
Motion was then made by Harry, sec-
onded by Arthur to authorize FO Van Lint
to transfer loan proceeds from the gen-
eral and sewer funds to the capital project
fund throughout the course of the project.
Motion carried.
CHS, Ìnc. DBA Midwest Cooperatives Ìm-
provement Plans:
Council reviewed CHS's preliminary con-
struction plans for their proposed fertilizer
plant and the surrounding area.
Discussion ensued in length as concerns
were voiced regarding the proposed
storm sewer and street relocations. Ìt was
noted that they are proposing to shorten
the storm sewer on E. Cherry St., remov-
ing a drop inlet from the intersection of E.
Cherry St. and S. Auto Ave. This would
eliminate a drop inlet for the water run-
ning down S. Auto Ave. Ìn addition, the
plans do not confirm that a ten foot (10')
boulevard will be maintained between the
south edge of the relocated E. Cherry St.
and those properties to the south.
PWD Reckling also made note of their
proposed connection to the water main as
well as relocating the hydrant from the
north side to the south side of E. Cherry
St. He will be recommending that they
reroute the water service along with the
Mr. Quenzer noted that he has visited
with CHS's engineers in length regarding
the concerns voiced and has also pro-
vided them with the plans and specifica-
tions for the 2003 Cherry Street project.
Mr. Quenzer also commented that it was
his understanding that CHS was going to
relocate the street to match the existing
street grade. Ìf that is the case, then in his
opinion, they should also be relocating
the storm sewer from its current location
where it serves as an outlet for water run-
off to serve the same purpose with the
new street. He did mention the possibility
of trucks turning the corner radiuses and
running over the storm sewer drop inlets
which he suggested could be protected
with the installation of bollards.
Motion was made by Matt, seconded by
Gartner to table the Road Maintenance
Agreement with CHS, Ìnc. to ensure that
the storm sewer will be extended and in-
stalled at the intersection of E. Cherry St.
and S. Auto Ave.
Following additional discussion, the
above motion was retracted by Matt.
Council Member Henrie then questioned
the following statement in the agreement,
"CHS agrees to treat the street with mag-
nesium chloride for dust control two to
three times per year at a minimum or as
deemed necessary.¨ She questioned who
would deem it necessary and what would
happen if it was the City, but CHS did not
FO Van Lint advised that it would more
than likely be that of the City, through
public input, but it can be changed to
more specifically state the City of Philip
and/or CHS.
Motion was then made by Matt, seconded
by Henrie to table the Road Maintenance
Agreement with CHS until their construc-
tion plans are finalized to the satisfaction
of the City by addressing the concerns
noted above regarding the storm sewer,
road location, rerouting the water main,
and relocating the water hydrant. Ìn addi-
tion, adding the City of Philip and/or CHS
as those authorized to deem additional
treatment of the street with magnesium
chloride in the agreement. Motion carried
with all members voting aye.
Ìt was questioned if Mr. Quenzer or the
City representative would be in contact
with CHS to get the City's concerns ad-
dressed. Mr. Quenzer noted that he has
shared all of his information with CHS's
engineers in which Council Member Gart-
ner noted that he would visit with Jay
Baxter, CHS Branch Manager.
Philip Trails Project:
Council Member Larson reported that on-
site visits have been conducted by both
the Recreational Trails Program (RTP)
and the Transportation Alternative Pro-
gram (TAP).
During the TAP site visit, recommenda-
tions were made to lengthen the trail to
promote connectivity. Ìn addition, the
width of the trail was extended from eight
to ten feet. With these recommendations,
the trail's estimated costs have signifi-
cantly increased. This prompted a discus-
sion with the State and they encouraged
the City to consider breaking the project
down into phases to warrant more fund-
ing options. The project will still remain
phase Ì, but it will separated into three dif-
ferent segments: (1 of 3) starting at the
intersection of W. Pine St. and Stanley
Ave. and running along Stanley Ave. to
the swimming pool; (2 of 3) from swim-
ming pool extending around the kiddie
park, ball diamond, fair grounds and end-
ing back at the swimming pool; and, (3 of
3) would connect to phase 2 of 3 in three
different areas and run the exterior of the
area around the rodeo grounds and Kjer-
stad's property.
Larson stated that both phases one and
two of three will be constructed with a
concrete surface. As for phase three of
three, it will need to be determined if the
surface will be concrete or crushed ag-
gregate. Ìn her opinion, the crushed ag-
gregate would be ideal since this area will
more than likely serve runners and walk-
Larson went on to note that SPN & Assoc.
and Kadrmas, Lee & Jackson (KLJ) engi-
neering firms have provided updated es-
timates to reflect the different phases of
the project. She noted that only SPN has
provided estimates for phase 3 of 3 as ei-
ther concrete or crushed aggregate.
She also stated that she will be meeting
with the Haakon Co. Conservation District
during their June 10th meeting to inquire
about donating trees for the trail area that
could be considered an "in kind¨ service.
The American Society of Landscape Ar-
chitects has also chosen our trail project
as their summer landscape project. They
will be visiting the site and providing land-
scape architect drawings that will also
qualify as an "in kind¨ contribution toward
the grant. Ìn addition, Council Member
Matt has located and been in contact with
representatives from TransCanada re-
garding their community grant that sup-
ports trails projects and she would
request the Council's authorization to
submit an application.
Following review, motion was made by
Matt, seconded by Henrie to authorize the
City's application to the TransCanada
Community Grant on behalf of the trails
project. Motion carried.
Much later in the meeting, during the pub-
lic comments portion of the meeting, Lar-
son again addressed the Council
regarding the trails project. She stated
that the Council will need to determine
which engineering estimate to submit with
the TAP application: SPN & Assoc. or
Larson went onto explain that KLJ's esti-
mate includes the engineering for all
phases payable during phase 1 of 3. Lar-
son confirmed that the $59,000 engineer-
ing estimate includes all of the survey,
design, bidding and construction engi-
neering during the course of all three
phases. She did note that KLJ did state
that if they have to come back during the
later projects, there may be additional
Ìt was also noted that KLJ estimates the
total project costs at $452,045.13
whereas SPN & Assoc. estimates the
project costs at $599,970 with both esti-
mates including engineering expenses.
Larson mentioned that KLJ's estimates fit
more into the TAP grant whereas SPN's
is considerably higher. She also stated
that KLJ's engineer is the one that has se-
lected our project for the American Soci-
ety of Landscape Architects summer
project and while he is here working on
the drawings, he would like to get the
staking done.
Council Member Arthur suggested build-
ing a man-made gravel trail with volun-
teers, omitting engineers and grant
applications; or, at least considering this
for a final phase of the proposed project.
Ìt was reiterated that regardless of the en-
gineering estimate submitted with the ap-
plication, the only engineering the City will
be in charge of is that of the design. The
SD DOT through the TAP, bids and con-
tracts for the remainder. Ìn addition, the
estimate submitted does not warrant that
engineer being hired to design the proj-
Ìt was also mentioned that if the lower of
the two estimates is submitted, the City
may have a better chance at getting the
funding necessary for all or part of the
project. For the record, the City may de-
cline the grant if it is not able to contribute
the 18.05% of matching funds.
By a straw poll of the Council, all mem-
bers agreed to submit the low engineer's
estimate as proposed by KLJ with the
TAP application.
Council then reviewed a special events
application and special alcoholic bever-
age license for the Dakota Bar during
Scotty Philip Days, June 14-16, 2013. Ìt
was noted that they are planning the
same events as in years past.
Mayor Vetter questioned Chief Graham
as to if he had any concerns with the ap-
plications. Graham confirmed that he
does not have any concerns.
Following review, motion was made by
Arthur, seconded by Gartner to approve
the Dakota Bar's Special Events Applica-
tion and Special Alcoholic Beverage Li-
cense for June 14 -16, 2013, contingent
upon receiving payment for said license.
Motion carried.
Council reviewed a request from Nels
Crowser to graze sheep at the Rubble
Mayor Vetter questioned the City's liability
in allowing him to graze his sheep at the
Rubble Site as well as the potential for
additional requests to graze animals if
this is allowed?
The possibility of counter offering with Mr.
Crowser was suggested as the City is in
dire need of obtaining additional land for
the Rubble Site.
Motion was made by Arthur, seconded by
Gartner to table Mr. Crowser's request
until the Mayor can discuss the possibility
of a counter offer with him. Motion car-
Motion was made by Arthur, seconded by
Matt to approve the Variance and Vacate
Fee Policy as amended below. Motion
Property owner(s) submitting variance
and/or vacate requests shall reimburse
the City for all costs incurred. This shall
include the fees incurred for recording
said variance and/or vacate in the office
of the Haakon County Register of Deeds
and the actual publication costs from pub-
lishing the required public hearing notice.
Council reviewed the following
Building/Flood Plain Development Per-
mits: Andrea Carley - deck; Bob Fugate -
sidewalk, landscaping, remove/replace
trees; Marty Gartner - storage buildings;
Marty Gartner for Lucky Strike -
remove/replace sidewalk, repair existing
building, remodel east addition; Rod &
LeeAnn Knutson - fence; Tena Slovek -
Concrete retaining wall, ivy fence, side-
walk & basketball court 20'x 20'; WR/LJ
Rural Water - 80'x100' building with water
& sewer, driveway.
Council Member Matt would like confirm
that Tena Slovek's fencing materials com-
ply with City Ordinance. Ìt was noted that
Slovek had discussed utilizing regular
steel posts, but it was recommended by
the building committee members that she
oontinued on page 12

utilize a stronger post such as a two-inch
pipe to ensure that they are strong
enough to hold the fence.
Ìt was also noted that WR/LJ's shop plans
include water and sewer services. PWD
Reckling would recommend that a new
water service line be installed from the
main to the shop to ensure compliance
with City Ordinance. The sewer connec-
tion from their existing sewer line is ac-
Following review, motion was made by
Arthur, seconded by Matt to approve the
permits as presented above with the ex-
ception of Tena Slovek's permit being ap-
proved contingent upon her fencing
materials complying with City Ordinance.
Motion carried.
Later in the meeting, during the public
comments portion of the meeting, the
above motion was retracted and the fol-
lowing motions were made.
Motion was made by Arthur, seconded by
Matt to approve the following permits as
presented above: Carley, Fugate, and
Knutson. Motion carried.
Motion was made by Arthur, seconded by
Gartner to approve WR/LJ Rural Water's
permit as presented above. Motion car-
ried with Matt abstaining from the vote.
Motion was made by Arthur, seconded by

fencing materials complying with City Or-
dinance. Motion carried.
Motion was made by Harry, seconded by
Arthur to approve participation in the SD

regular monthly retirement. Motion car-
Council went on to review the City's em-
ployee health insurance increase of 4%
for 2013/2014.
Mayor Vetter stated that during last year's
renewal process, it was determined to
consider alternate options in order to de-
crease the City's insurance expense. This
included increasing the deductible with a
buy down option which would be covered
by the City so that it will not directly affect
the employees. For example, increasing
the deductible from $250 to $1,000, the
buy down deductible option would be the
$750 difference that would be paid by the
City, not the employee. This would apply
to the employees and their dependents.
The Budget Committee recommended in-
creasing the coverage to a $1,000 de-
ductible with a premium savings of
$21,426.72 per year. This includes an
$8.00 administration fee per month for
each employee for the buy down option.
Ìn addition, the City would still be required
to budget for the buy down deductible for
all employees and dependents. Ìf those
should be paid out throughout the year,
the City's saving in premiums would be
reduced to $1,926.72 per year.
Council Member Matt reported that during
2012, only four out of twenty six de-
ductibles were met. Ìn his opinion, in-
creasing the deductible as proposed
would "keep the City employees whole
while saving the City money.¨
Council Member Arthur asked for confir-
mation that the "employees out-of-pocket¨
expenses will not change. Council Mem-
ber Larson also questioned about the
$8.00 per employee per month adminis-
tration cost, if it applies to employees and
the dependents.
FO Van Lint stated that she has con-
firmed with Jessica with Professional Ìn-
surers that the administration fee only
applies to the employees, but the buy
downs apply to the employees and their
dependents. Ìn addition, she confirmed
that the employees will not see a change
in their coverage. Ìt will only be on the
City's side of the insurance premiums and
buy downs.
Following review, motion was made by
Matt, seconded by Henrie to approve the
$1,000 insurance deductible option with
a buy down of $750 for each employee
and their dependents. Motion carried with
all members.
Council reviewed the following L/P
Propane bids received this month:
May 24 May 31,
2013 2013
Fitzgerald Oil
Company $1.26/gal. $1.25/gal.
Cooperatives $1.35/gal. $1.35/gal.
Departmental Reports:
The quarterly Police Dept. report was pre-
sented and reviewed with Chief Graham.
Chief Graham reported that he witnessed
three young people swimming in the hot
water pond last week. He noted that since
this is City property, it should be signed to
cover the City's liability. For instance, if
the City is going to allow swimming in the
pond, then it needs to be signed to alert
swimmers that they are swimming at their
own risk.
PWD Reckling recommended moving the
"no lifeguard on duty - swim at your own
risk¨ sign from the Lake Waggoner beach
area to the road entrance so that both the
lake and pond are signed properly. He
noted that the sign would be placed on
the same pole as that of the "thin ice¨
Council Member Arthur also recom-
mended this be reviewed with City Attor-
ney Tollefson in order to ensure that we
are covering our liability.
By general consensus of the Council,
PWD Reckling will move the sign to the
entrance area and Attorney Tollefson will
be contacted to confirm that our liability is
covered with the sign placement.
The monthly Street Dept. report was re-
The swimming pool report was reviewed.
Council reviewed a request from Haakon
County Young Women (HCYW) for park
patrons to utilize the pool bathrooms
again this summer. They are requesting
they be open from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
during the week with the exception of
Thursdays in July when they host their
"Summer Nights¨ till 9:00 pm.
By general consensus of the Council, the
HCYW's request to utilize the pool bath-
rooms for the park patrons was approved.
Motion was made by Harry, seconded by
Henrie to approve the following additional
lifeguard and contract for water safety in-
structor (WSÌ) per the Health/Rec. Com-
mittee's recommendation. Motion carried
with all members voting aye.
Peterson, Tanya - Contract
WSÌ - $7.25/hr. plus reimburse
one-half of the WSÌ training
fees if instruction is provided
during all swimming lesson
sessions. Pinney, Austin - Life-
guard - $7.25/hr.
Ìt was reported that the pool sidewalk rail-
ing has been installed. A huge thank you
was expressed to the Haakon School
District Ìndustrial Arts instructor and class
for building the railing; Les' Body Shop for
donating the paint; and, Assistant
Street/Sewer Supt. Jason Peterson for
painting and installing the railing.
A preschool level of swimming lessons
has been added to the first session of les-
sons, June 24-28, 2013. Level 3 swim-
ming lessons have also been changed
from a half-hour daily session to a one-
hour daily session this year.
The 40 & 8 Group has once again made
a donation to the pool this year. Their do-
nation of $75 will help host a "Free Swim
Day¨ on Saturday, June 15th during
Scotty Philip Days.
Mayor, Council and those in attendance
expressed their appreciation to the 40&8
Group for their continued contributions to
the pool and community.
The lifeguard certification and WSÌ certi-
fication was highly attended this year and
appreciation was expressed to the Philip
Ambulance for the use of their meeting
room during the classes.

chanic work and fencing. Satur-
day night, Bill, Polly and Jesse at-
tended church in Midland.
Sunday, there were several cow-
boys on hand to help move cattle
to a south pasture. Bill had some
surgery a few weeks ago, and it
sounds like recovery is going well.
Sarah Neuhauser of Spearfish
was home for the weekend of June
1-2. She and her mother Mary at-
tended a dance recital. Sarah's
cousin, Shelby Gerber, was one of
the dancers, and this will be her
last recital since she graduated
this spring. This past weekend,
Kevin and Mary attended the
spring ceremonial and Potentate's
Ball of the Naja Shriners in Dead-
wood. There were five people from
our area joining the Shrine – Tan-
ner, Blake, and Ty Norman, Shad
Riggle and Richard Siedslaw.
Other people attending were
Mitch and Corrine Norman and
Zay and Carrie Norman. Kevin
took three of his restored John
Deere tractors out and partici-
pated in the parade there on Sat-
urday. Kevin came home on
Sunday, and Mary stayed with
Sarah in Spearfish as she had ap-
pointments in Rapid City on Mon-
Ron and Helen Beckwith had all
of their family home over the Me-
morial Day weekend. Gary and
Anne Beckwith also joined the
group. Their daughter, Rose, and
family as well as some friends
from Ft. Pierre were at Ron and
Helen's last weekend. Ron and
Helen's friends, Bruce and
Brenda, have also been staying
with them while they are prepar-
ing to move into a house at the for-
mer Hamilton place.
Dorothy and Nels Paulson were
in town running errands last
Wednesday, and Nels says that
keeping the grass mowed is nearly
a full time job. Nels joined some
others in mowing the Sansarc
Cemetery on Monday. Dorothy
and friends, Bill and Jeanette
Marshall, were at Neuhauser's
early last week to pick up a kitten.
(And if anyone else needs a kitten,
please give me a call!) Dorothy at-
tended church on Sunday, and
Mork Norman was an afternoon
visitor. He came to pick up a cow
that has been "visiting" off and on
for the past few months.
On May 25, a baby shower was
held at the Chase and Kelly
Briggs home to honor Erin
(Briggs) Horn and her daughter
Anika. It was a beautiful day and
a beautiful baby – it looks like
Anika is going to be just as pretty
as her momma!
Ray and Nancy Neuhauser stay
busy with senior center and card
playing activities. A couple of
weeks ago, Nancy had five great-
grandchildren spend the night at
her house, along with their moth-
ers. The kids were ages 10, eight,
five, and two two-year-olds! Nancy
said they toured the Capitol build-
ing, and they were fortunate to
meet the governor and have a pic-
ture taken. They also toured the
Cultural Heritage Center and
Oahe Dam, ending the day with a
walleye supper at a local restau-
rant. Last Saturday, Nancy and
Ray went to Brett Sterling's place
near Chamberlain to watch
branding activities. Later on Sat-
urday, Nancy met up with her
daughter, Julie, and husband,
Rod, and the three of them went to
their cabin in the Black Hills, re-
turning home on Sunday evening.
Ruth Neuhauser said things
look pretty lush in the Highmore
area also. On Memorial Day, Ruth
had a visit from her nephew, John
Smith, and his wife, Carmen, from
New Orleans. John is the son of
Ruth's sister, Ruby (Briggs) Smith
Morgan. John and Carmen were
headed to Oregon. That afternoon,
Ruth had a nice visit from long-
time friends Billy and Arlyne
Markwed. This past weekend,
Nina (Neuhauser) and Lynn
Nachtigall spent some time with
Ruth, also. They had been to a
nephew's wedding in Freeman.
They spent Sunday evening in
Highmore and traveled to their
home in Cheyenne on Monday.
Ruth said that Connie
(Neuhauser) and Bunky Boger are
"on the road again" with their ed-
ucational agricultural exhibit, ap-
pearing at several fairs across the
United States. They are currently
in Minneapolis, I believe. It will be
several months before their fair
season is over.
That concludes the news from
the neighborhood folks that I was
able to contact. Hopefully next
week I'll have even better luck!
At our ranch, we are busy with
field work as well as cattle work.
We are still fixing fences and re-
building corrals, also. We got quite
a bit of hail here the night of May
25, so some of the crops and flow-
ers got a little beat up. Randy and
I were in Pierre Saturday evening
for a birthday party, and Sunday
we attended a baseball game at 4-
Corners. The birthday party was
fun, and the 4-C team did a great
job! Scott and Corry Neuhauser
met us at 4-Corners so we could
bring the grandchildren home
with us for the week while Scott
and Corry are on vacation. I think
by next week, I'll be ready for a
This week, I'm most grateful for
the moisture. It is so nice to see
the pastures so lush – earlier this
year they were looking pretty
sparse. The cattle are content and
the calves are fat and happy. I in-
tend to keep praying for timely
rains, and I made sure to thank
the Creator for the moisture we've
received! It is easy to take the
moisture for granted when it is
Take care, be safe, and enjoy the
season. All this daylight is won-
derful! Have a great week!
