The Philip “C” baseball team has won every game so far this season. Of course, since no scores are recorded, so have their
opponents. The team is coached by Brad Haynes, David Schriever and Terry Henrie. “It’s all about developing skills,” said
Henrie. “This is going to be one heck of an “A” ball team.” According to www.philipyouthbaseball.blogspot.com, the team’s
next game will be 4:30 p.m., Tuesday, July 2, at Kadoka. Back row, from left: Wakely Burns, Layton Terkildsen, Evan Kroetch,

AARP South Dakota is hitting
the road this summer, inviting
South Dakotans to weigh in on the
future of Medicare and Social Secu-
AARP South Dakota will hold a
community conversation from noon
to 1:00 p.m., Wednesday, July 17,
in Philip at The Steakhouse and
Lounge, asking residents to weigh
in various proposals which will im-
pact both current and future
Medicare and Social Security ben-
eficiaries. Lunch will be provided
by AARP South Dakota. There is
no cost to attend, and AARP mem-
bership is not necessary to partici-
pate, but registration is required as
seating is limited. Call 1-877-926-
8300 to register.
Community conversations in 11
South Dakota locations will focus
on the challenges facing both
Medicare and Social Security in the
coming years, and the solutions
needed to protect and strengthen
the health and financial security
South Dakotans rely on in their re-
tirement years. Dates and locations
for additional sessions being held
across South Dakota through the
end of July can be found at
“Social Security and Medicare
are promises our country made to
current and future retirees,” said
Sarah Jennings, state director for
AARP South Dakota. “Some in
Washington believe cutting bene-
fits is the way to address the long-
term challenges facing the
programs that so many of our
neighbors across the state rely on
in retirement. But AARP believes
older South Dakotans deserve re-
sponsible, commonsense solutions,
not harmful cuts.”
In 2012, AARP South Dakota
made stops in all 66 counties in
South Dakota, listening to resi-
dents about their concerns for the
future of Medicare and Social Secu-
rity, and their ideas on how to
shore up the programs for future
“More than 8,000 South
Dakotans shared their thoughts
and concerns either in person at
one of our stops in every county in
South Dakota, or through a series
on online questionnaires. This
shows Medicare and Social Secu-
rity are important to South
Dakotans and that they want
someone to listen to their concerns.
AARP is doing just that,” said Jen-
“Hardworking South Dakotans
have paid into Medicare and Social
Security their entire lives,” con-
cluded Jennings. “They’ve earned a
say in what happens to these pro-
grams in the future, and they de-
serve responsible solutions that
keep America’s promise to seniors,
their kids, and their grandkids.
We are giving people an opportu-
nity to make their voice heard.”

Weigh in on Medicare and Social Security
through second community conversation
by Del Bartels
Over 150 cowboys and cowgirls
came together Saturday and Sun-
day, June 22 and 23, at the Philip
roping arena to compete in six dif-
ferent rounds of team roping.
Cowboys could enter multiple
times, each with different partners,
thus there were approximately 500
teams registered during the week-
end. Each cowboy tried to earn not
only individual best times and best
total team times for number of
head roped, but also to rack up
enough points in the sixth event to
earn the weekend’s grand prize of
a horse trailer. The high point
roper of that final event won a
three-horse slant trailer provided
by Perry’s Trailer Sales.
“The winner in this event is the
Philip Arena Association,” said
Doug West. “Because of the im-
provements that have been made
to the arena over the years, we
have made it possible to put in this
type of huge team roping. I guess
there’s no guarantee, but it might
be here next year.”
The association is striving to be
open for all rodeo events. “We want
to have it all,” said West. “We want
barrel racing and kids’ fun days.”
The association will continue to
promote rodeo events in the local
trade area. “Bringing that many
people to town ... they spend money
here. We will continue to plug and
promote, and bring additional busi-
ness to our town,” said West.
So far, every Thursday evening
is scheduled for team roping prac-
tice. The association’s next major
scheduled event is the annual Ma-
sonic Rascal Rodeo for youth on
Saturday, August 3.
The first team roping match on
Saturday saw the fastest total time
on four head being 37.81 seconds,
accomplished by header Tucker
Dale and heeler Paul Griemsman.
The second match ended with
first place going to the team of Dale
with heeler Seth Weishaar. Their
total time for four steers was 33.82.
Taking second place were Tim Nel-
son as header and Griemsman as
heeler. Their total time was 36.55
on four.
The third match had a single
steer best time of 13.39, done by
Trace Steele and Jess Dale. They
also earned the lowest total time on
four steers, 50.99.
The fourth and final match on
Saturday ended with the fastest
single time of 6.88, done by Heath
Lapp and Steve McDaniel. The
lowest total on four, though, went
to Clay Edgar and Colby Crago
with 30.19.
Sunday’s first match awarded
the top two fastest single times.
Clint Nelson and Mike Nelson shot
a 6.24. C. Nelson with heeler Jim
Selchert roped a 6.97. The fastest
total time on three steer, 29.42,
was done by Selchert and Dalton
Richter, who each won trophy Top
Guns Steele Roping buckles. Sec-
ond place went to Denise Nelson
and Tell Stoner – 34.08, 3rd to Jeff
Harris and Donn Paulson – 34.12,
4th – Tabitha Harris and Guy
Fransua – 45.76, 5th – Lynn Stad-
heim and Dan Nelson – 38.22, and
6th – Jacob Foulger and M. Nel-
son – 40.58.
The second and final match on
Sunday was the Perry’s Trailer
Handicap match. Single times were
won by Jae Smith and Kolby Long-
brake with 6.70, Cody Stahly and
Kevin Tibbs – 7.15, and Cody
Stahly and Paulson – 7.17. The top
total time of 27.67 on three steer
was earned by Tate Cowan and
Casey Cowan, who received trophy
Top Guns Steel Roping coats. T.
Cowan also earned the most indi-
vidual roper points of the match to
win the horse trailer.
Final match second place went to
the team of Scott Kennedy and
Paulson with 28.55. Third place
went to Matt Peters and Les
Tiltrum with 29.23. All four cow-
boys received trophy top guns
coats. Fourth place – T. Cowan and
Bryce Sigmans – 30.00, 5th –
Kennedy and Tibbs – 30.45, 6th –
Zach Fecht and McDaniel – 30.54,
7th – Smith and Don Breitag –
31.43, 8th – Brock Williams and
Doug Harris – 31.99, 9th – Kourt
Starr and Cal Peterson – 33.12,
10th – Troy Richter and Donald
Janvrin – 34.63.
The Philip Arena Association arena was surrounded by pickups and trailers last weekend, with over 150 cowboys and cow-
girls competing in team roping. Below are Casey Cowen, left, as one of the partners teaming up with sixth match winner

Lookin’ Around by Syd Iwan
We spent three days of last week
vacationing in the penthouse (10th
floor) of the Rapid City hospital.
Son Chance rather enjoyed him-
self. His mother and I not so much.
This all was occasioned by Chance
starting to bleed rather profusely
from around his stomach tube late
Sunday evening. After turning sev-
eral paper towels red, we got a lit-
tle spooked and decided to bundle
our boy up and take him to the
local emergency room.
There weren’t many sophisti-
cated scanning devices locally to
find out exactly was going on, so
Dr. H recommended an ambulance
ride eighty miles father west to an
associated larger facility. As a re-
sult, Chance and Corinne were on
their way before very long. I gassed
up the car, gathered a few sup-
plies, and followed on behind. By
about sunrise, we were at the big
hospital in the “admit” (admit-
tance) department. An hour or two
after that found us ensconced in a
room on the tenth floor. Then noth-
ing much happened until a doctor
wandered in mid-afternoon. Fortu-
nately, the bleeding had mostly
stopped except for a short outburst
when Chance stood up in moving
from the ambulance cart to a bed.
Since we hadn’t had much sleep,
we checked into a motel where
Corinne took a nap and I waited in
Chance’s room for some action. As
I said, not much happened since
the doctor just set up some scans
and things for the next day and not
right away. This was when I found
out how uncomfortable hospital
chairs can be. They had a reclining
chair that was one of the most
hopeless things I have ever had the
misfortune to use. For one thing, it
had such a strong spring that, if
you pushed it back into the reclin-
ing position, it snapped you right
back upright. If I scooted as far
back as possible so most of my
weight was on the back, then it
might stay that way unless I
moved. Secondly, the arms of the
thing had wooden tops so they put
your arms right to sleep if you used
them. My arms had to be kept by
my sides with my hands in my lap.
Nevertheless, I was tired enough
to doze off from time to time until
Corinne returned from the motel.
The rest of the day was spent
waiting around, going out to eat,
buying a few supplies and the like.
Corinne and I took turns resting at
the motel or keeping guard at the
room. We find that one of us has to
be with Chance when he’s in a hos-
pital or they try to administer
something to which he is allergic or
doesn’t tolerate well. Sometimes,
too, they need advice on how to
deal with our guy.
They finally got to a scan with
dyes on Tuesday afternoon which
showed almost nothing except that
there might be a minor infection
which could be treated with some
antibiotics. We thought we might
as well go back home, but the doc-
tor advised staying overnight since
Chance had been anesthetized for
the scan which can cause problems
that need to be watched. We grudg-
ingly agreed and prepared for an-
other night’s stay. That was when
I got a second lesson in bad furni-
ture. In Chance’s room, besides the
dreadful lounge chair, there was
this odd wide chair that, through
various weird manipulations, could
be made into a cot which was only
slightly softer than the floor—very
slightly. Still, when you’re really
tired, you can sleep on such a thing
with a little effort. I did for several
hours on and off between caring for
What probably upset us the most
was that Chance went without food
for over twenty-four hours. They
thought his stomach feeding tube
might be misplaced somehow and
didn’t want to risk using it. Since
Chance can’t chew and swallow
worth a hoot, the stomach tube is
his only way of getting nutrition.
Finally after the scan showed the
tube was not badly out of place, we
could resume feeding to his relief
and ours.
It was interesting to note that
Chance has a way about him that
makes people like him. When
nurses first come in to Chance’s
room, they enter with a certain
amount of trepidation since our
boy is autistic and they don’t quite
know what to expect. Before long,
however, they discover what a
sweetheart he is and start babying
him something chronic. They often
later tell us he is their favorite pa-
tient. It’s no wonder Chance isn’t
in any hurry to leave since he en-
joys all the attention and action.
His mother and I, however, tire of
huge parking lots, the many ten-
floor elevator rides, fighting town
traffic, and struggling to get
enough sleep. We were more than
ready to get home about one in the
afternoon on Wednesday. Appar-
ently we would have been ahead to
just have Chance lie flat at home
and apply light pressure until the
bleeding stopped. Unfortunately,
we didn’t know that at the time.
Neither did we know the infection
wasn’t so minor and would give us
fits the rest of the week with high
temperatures, low oxygen satura-
tion, racing heart, and the shakes.
At least that could be dealt with at
home with the help of our local doc-
tor. Anyway, so much for pent-
house vacationing. Next time
maybe we’ll go to a lake or some-

Guest Editorial
The Pioneer Review still makes sense
by Bill Kunkle
This is not the country I once knew. Just about everything has
changed, even entertainment. Much of it doesn’t make sense. Where
is Tom Mix, Henry Fonda, Katharine Hepburn? I miss Glenn Miller.
And where are the kids who played in the streets for fun? Most are
isolated creatures now, sitting inside watching TV or playing games
on electronic toys. Nobody seems to talk to each other anymore, com-
municating on things like Facebook, texting or computers.
And where are the strong, beautiful, sexy, perfect females that now
seem to dress like boys?
The country I went to war for is not the same, but is still the greatest
country in the world. And Philip and Haakon County are the best part
of it.
At least we have people like Don Ravellette, who illustrated Memo-
rial Day in front page photos so well and Del Bartels who helps make
sense of things, and dry our tears.
Bedfellow politics ... by Del Bartels
The old phrase “politics makes strange bedfellows” may be dubious
in its origins, but it does apply. The two major United States political
parties are comically represented by an elephant and a donkey. A catch
phrase overused by both sides is “bipartisan,” but do you really want
what you might get if you ever crossed these two critters?
Democrats lip service that the donkey is smart and brave, and Re-
publicans say the elephant is strong and dignified. Each party thinks
of the other in quite different terms. The cartoon mascots aren’t the
only sadly humorous thing about politics. Even at the writing of the
Constitution, the more populated states wanted to win all votes, thus
the per-population House of Representatives. Sparse states balanced
the teeter-totter by every state getting the same number of votes no
matter what, thus we have the Senate. Now it takes two similar bills
to make their precarious trips through the House as well as the Senate,
then they are disjointedly joined and voted on by both houses again.
Like the grade school game of starting a whispered sentence at one end
of the student line, the end-of-the-line result is far different than the
original message. And, only in America can a bill on, say, submarines
have an amendment that calls for documentation on, say, the dimin-
ishing population of the North Dakota salamander.
For many South Dakotans it doesn’t really matter, because our two
South Dakota senators often cancel each other out, and the lone S.D.
representative screams against a roaring hurricane of 434 others. We
can’t complain. Only a small percentage of us vote anyway. Of those,
not that great many actually know the candidate or the issues.
Even then, we are a people led by our own minorities. On the hot
issue of abortion, studies state that in 2005 and in 2008 there were
only two abortion providers in the state. If every person belonging to
organizations that proclaim abortions should be stopped actually voted
with that belief, then those providers would go out of business. On the
issue of gay rights, the rest of us can so easily out-vote them and yet
they still get laws passed such as getting spousal benefits. On insur-
ance matters, everyone by law must have minimum liability vehicle in-
surance, yet almost all policies include an uninsured motorist clause
... and we sadly need it all too often. We could greatly diminish the
abuse of tobacco and alcohol, but the government tax coffers are ad-
dicted to both. We pay heavily for limited hunting licenses, then pay
taxes to diminish depredation. We vote to increase minimum wage, so
eventually an entry level worker will be equal to a five-year worker.
Voted-for taxes help save the prairie dog, and voted-for taxes go to
prairie dog control programs.
I’ll vote for your bill if you vote for mine. I’ll okay your amendment
if you okay mine. Like Dr. Doolittle, taxes go to push-me and they go
to pull-you. Maybe that’s what you get with a donkey/elephant.

E. Free Church VBS held in Philip
The Philip Community Evangelical Free Church held its an-
nual Vacation Bible School Tuesday through Friday, June 18-
21. Children from kindergarten through sixth grade
participated in adventures, games, songs, experiments and
snacks all geared to the theme “Kingdom Rock – Where
Kids Stand Strong for God.” In five lessons over the four
days, the kids learned that God’s love, family and friends,
prayer, trusting God and the Bible help them to stand
strong. Projects involved gizmos and gadgets at the imagi-
nation station. The VBS involved four adult leaders, five
helpers and 19 kids. “We had a great group of people who
came together to make this possible,” said Pastor Gary
Wahl. Shown above is one of the songs being performed
during the family presentation closing ceremony. At right is
helper Amanda McIlravy with the ever-present Wally who
helped address the theme. Photos by Del Bartels

Mosquito pools in Brookings and
Hughes counties are South
Dakota’s first West Nile virus de-
tections of the season, the health
department reported July 24. To
date, the state public health labo-
ratory has tested 57 culex mosquito
pools from Brookings, Codington,
Davison and Hughes counties and
these are the first to test positive.
In 2012, the first positive mosquito
pool was detected July 2. The first
human case was reported July 13.
“This will be the 12th year of
West Nile transmission in South
Dakota and it may be tempting to
be complacent,” said Dr. Lon
Kightlinger, state epidemiologist
for the Department of Health. “But
West Nile can be a serious, even
fatal illness, and we need to get in
the habit of protecting ourselves by
using repellents, limiting exposure
and getting rid of mosquito breed-
ing spots.”
People can prevent mosquito
bites and reduce their risk of WNV
by using mosquito repellents
(DEET, picaridin, oil of lemon eu-
calyptus or IR3535) and limit expo-
sure by covering up. Limit time
outdoors from dusk to midnight
when culex mosquitoes are most
active. Culex are the primary car-
rier of West Nile in South Dakota.
Get rid of standing water that gives
mosquitoes a place to breed. Sup-
port local mosquito 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-

Winter Wheat
Variety Plot Tours
Winter wheat faced significant
challenges this year, and the
SDSU Crop Performance Testing
(CPT) plots were certainly not
spared. Some of the locations have
already been destroyed in hopes of
raising other crops, while others
remain intact with hopes of gath-
ering viable yield data.
Besides providing yield, test
weight and other valuable infor-
mation, Winter Wheat CPT plots
also provide an opportunity for
producers to learn about new, up
and coming varieties. Between
plots being abandoned and posi-
tions open at SDSU Extension,
crop tours will be scaled back a lit-
tle this year, but Winter Wheat
Variety Plot Tours are planned
near Ideal on July 1 and Martin on
July 2 in south-central South
The tour near Ideal will be held
at the Jorgensen Farm, beginning
at 5:30 p.m., (CT). From Winner,
go 8.5 miles north on N. County
Road, 2.5 miles west, 4 miles north
and 0.5 miles west. You can also go
1 mile east, 1 mile north and 0.5
miles west of the Ideal Post Office.
Speakers will be Steve Kalsbeck,
Sr. Research Associate with the
SDSU Winter Wheat Breeding
program, and Bob Fanning, Plant
Pathology Field Specialist. A meal
will be served following the tour,
sponsored by Winner Seed, Sim-
plot Soil Builders and Country
Pride Co-op.
The Winter Wheat Variety Plot
Tour at Martin will begin at 5:00
p.m. (MT) and is located five miles
east of the stop light in Martin, on
the south side of SD Hwy 18-73.
Farm Credit Services of Rapid City
will be providing refreshments.

Some Winter Wheat
did not Vernalize
Earlier this spring, many win-
ter wheat producers, agronomists
and crop insurance adjusters were
deliberating if winter wheat
stands were adequate, what yield
they might produce, and if the crop
vernalized. As discussed in past
articles, winter wheat must ver-
nalize in order to enter the repro-
ductive stage, i.e. elongate and
produce a seed head.
Again, in order for the vernal-
ization process to occur, the wheat
kernel must at least begin the ger-
mination process (at a minimum
absorb moisture and swell), then
go through a period of time at a
temperature below 48° F. This pe-
riod of time can vary from as little
as a few days for some of the early,
“winter tender” varieties; to as
long as three weeks for the later,
winter hardy varieties. The maxi-
mum temperature may also vary
slightly, depending on the earli-
ness/winterhardiness of the vari-
ety. This process usually occurs in
the fall, before winter sets in, if ad-
equate soil moisture is present to
germinate the seed. Vernalization
can also occur during the winter if
warm spells begin the germination
process, or early in the spring.
It is virtually unheard of for fall
planted winter wheat not to ver-
nalize in South Dakota. The win-
ter wheat year of 2012-13 will
certainly go down in the record
books in confirmation that this
anomaly can occur. As of June 19,
there were reports of winter wheat
not yet jointing, indicating that the
plants did not vernalize, and in
some fields, the majority did not.
There is no way to determine for
sure a winter wheat plant vernal-
ized until it elongates or fails to do

The South Dakota Department
of Revenue, Division of Motor Ve-
hicles, reminds motor vehicle own-
ers that the second phase of the
noncommercial motor vehicle reg-
istration fee increase will go into ef-
fect July 1, 2013.
House Bill 1192, which was
passed in 2011 over Governor Den-
nis Daugaard’s veto, raised vehicle
registration fees in a two-phase
process. The first phase took place
in 2011, and the second increase
will happen next month. The new
funds from the increase will go to
local roads and bridges.
Registration fees are computed
according to the weight schedules
for noncommercial vehicles. The
new fee rate schedule can be
viewed online at the Division of
Motor Vehicles Web page http://

The South Dakota Department
of Agriculture is urging landowners
to take the necessary steps now to
manage grasshopper populations.
“Since April snowstorms led to a
late onset of spring and May rains
pushed back planting, producers
now find themselves at the start of
haying season,” said South Dakota
Secretary of Agriculture Lucas
Lentsch. “In the hustle and bustle
of the next month, it is important
to remember that now is the best
time to scout for grasshoppers.”
Each summer, South Dakota
faces the possibility of destructive
grasshopper outbreaks. Predicting
these outbreaks before they occur
is very challenging and early scout-
ing is the key to grasshopper man-
“The dry conditions in the sum-
mer of 2012 may have actually
helped reduce the outbreak poten-
tial for this summer,” said Mike
Stenson with the South Dakota De-
partment of Agriculture.
Later hatching species had lim-
ited green vegetation needed for
growth and eventually egg laying.
In some cases, extreme heat can ac-
tually lead to nymphal mortality.
This year’s cool wet spring will aid
in the suppression of early hatch-
ing species by increasing the pres-
ence of bacteria and disease within
the grasshopper population.
“Even though Mother Nature
has been on our side and a large
scale outbreak is unlikely, it is still
important to check your own fields
and pastures for newly hatching
grasshoppers,” said Stenson.
Grasshoppers go through five
nymphal or instar stages before
they reach adulthood and sexual
maturity. During the nymphal
stages the grasshoppers are very
susceptible to environmental condi-
tions as well as pesticide treatment
practices. Once they reach adult-
hood they begin laying eggs almost
immediately and become much
harder to kill.
Although treating adults that
are actively laying eggs might curb
current feeding damage, it will not
break the life cycle or produce ben-
efits in subsequent years.
“Reports are coming in of
grasshoppers hatching in the
southern most South Dakota coun-
ties,” said Stenson. “If the hatch
continues at a normal pace, the last
two weeks of June will be the per-
fect time for grasshopper control
The South Dakota Department
of Agriculture and USDA - Animal
and Plant Health Inspection Serv-
ice will be collaborating to keep the
public abreast of the current
grasshopper situation and provide
producers with information on
grasshopper treatment options spe-
cific to their operation.

grasshopper control in South
Dakota, contact Stenson with the

June 14, at Somerset Court, we
had the celebration of Flag Day.
Many residents wore red, white
and blue and received generous
Somerset Court bucks for the auc-
tion which is scheduled for June
My daughter, Carol, and her
husband, Al Vogan, Colorado
Springs, arrived in time for the Fa-
ther’s Day special pizza and beer
supper. There were many kinds of
pizza. My son, Wayne, and his wife,
Gwynn, came and joined us for sup-
per at Somerset Court in the guest
dining room. Carol and Al stayed in
the guest suite. Saturday, June 15,
we all planned to go to Philip for
the Scotty Philip Days. It is also
Carol’s 50th anniversary of gradu-
ation from Philip High School.
M.R. and Barbara Hansen flew
out of Rapid City June 14 on the
first leg of the journey to Mongolia.
The Philip Pioneer Review for
June 13 arrived on June 14 with a
good list of Philip students on the
dean’s list, included were Jeffrey
O’Connell, Tara Ravellette and
Chris Coyle at University of South
Dakota, Krista Van Lint at
Chadron and honors for Paula
Duncan at North Dakota State Col-
lege of Science. Lake Area Tech
students, Casey Briggs, Midland,
and Ryan Kammerer, Philip, grad-
uated with agriculture degrees and
Stephanie Rossouw graduated with
financial services degree.
Sorry to miss Monday, but I went
to my hometown Philip over the
weekend. We attended Scotty
Philip Days and I saw a great num-
ber of people I used to know. We
had good fun at the Bad River Sen-
ior Citizen’s Center and I asked old
friends and acquaintances to sign
my journal book. Here are the

Saturday, June 15, we saw the
parade at Scotty Philip Days.
There was a good crowd in atten-
dance. The Philip High School
Class of 1963 float had a good
bunch of graduates riding on it.
There were several other class
floats, several vintage cars, lots of
tractors with about five from
Neuhauser farms of northern
Haakon County, and a team of tiny
horses pulling a wagon. There were
several of the Philip Volunteer Fire
Department trucks in the parade
as well as other fire equipment,
three ambulances, club floats and
the usual bikes and motorcycles.
Roger Porch did a good job of an-
nouncing and Del Bartels was busy
shooting photos for the Pioneer Re-
view. The weather blessed the pa-
rade with calm and warm, not hot,
weather. There were scads of candy
thrown out for watchers. My son-
in-law, Al, ventured out and got me
a Tootsie Roll.
We had a big breakfast at the
Bad River Senior Citizen’s Center.
This is a high point of Scotty Philip
Days. The food is great and you get
to see people who you hadn’t seen
since last year.
Gwynn Hansen and I went to see
Gay Logan and learned that the
three organizations at Midland
(the Midland Pioneer Museum,
The Historical Society of Old Stan-
ley County and The Midland Mu-
seum) have disbanded and formed
a single society named the Pioneer
Club of Old Stanley County. Gay
had been secretary of the historical
society for many years.
Gay Logan’s son, Russ Logan,
has retired from 30 years of work-
ing at the Badlands National Park
and has bought a home and
acreage in the Badlands.
Gay took an extended visit this
spring to visit her brother, Don,
and his wife, Delores, near Pavil-
ion, Wyo., and her sister, Cerella
Overgaard, Riverton, Wyo., and
also other relatives. When Gay has
spare time, she crochets afghans
and makes quilts and rugs. She
also helps with devotions at the
Philip Nursing Home.
Gay reported that our mutual
relative, Dylan Mair, Gay’s grand-
nephew and my great-grandson,
Mountain View, Wyo., is planning
to be married on August 18, 2013.
We wish him and his bride the
Another family thing we did was
visit the Philip Masonic Cemetery.
My great-granddaughter,
Melissa Snively, husband Breck
and little daughter Teagan came
from Gillette, Wyo., and we had a
good visit. Teagan entertained us
by showing us the many lovely pol-
ished agates and petrified wood
that her grandpa, Chuck Allen, had
given her. There is much to be
learned from such a collection.
There is counting, grouping for
color, and/or shape and matching
the pieces that belong together.
Gwynn and Breck visited about the
merits of various breeds of dogs
they had had and loved over the
Sunday morning, our family
group, Wayne and Gwynn, Carol
and Al, and David and I all went
over to Kadoka and had breakfast
at a local cafe. There we met Susan
Drake, whom I used to have in my
speech class at the Kadoka school.
Susan was holding down the fort
until Roy Miller brought his wife,
Theresa (Bowen), to help. I asked
Susan what happened to Charlie
Prokop, another pupil I had at the
Kadoka school. Susan said he now
cooks over at the Philip hospital.
We had a good visit with Theresa
and Roy and a great breakfast.
We had a good shower of rain
while we were in the cafe. Next, we
went to Al and Lenore Bruch-
lacker’s acreage down by the Bad
River west of Philip. David looked
at materials that he plans to use to
build a fence to keep cars from run-
ning in the river.
Wayne and Gwynn, Carol and Al
and I all slept in my old house in
Philip. David K. Hansen had
brought his camper. I enjoyed my
old house and “treasures” very
much and brought a few items back
with me to Somerset Court.
Sherman and Alvin Ellerton’s
sister and niece from Washington
state left Monday to return home.
Carol and Al Vogan left for Col-
orado Springs after visiting Vivian
Hansen and taking her along to
Philip for the Scotty Philip Days
and the 50th anniversary of Carol’s
Philip High School Class. Thank
you for your visit, Carol and Al.
We pray for our friend, Virginia
Gray, who fell and was injured Fri-
day evening. She will be in hospice
until she can manage without the
extra care.
Authorities are investigating the
death of a 28-year-old Philip man,
Zane Nelson.
A recent Rapid City Journal had
an interesting article “Tiny tele-
scopes restore sight to macular de-
generation patients.” These
telescopes are about the size of a
pea. What a marvel! I plan to put
the article in the Somerset Court
scrapbook on the coffee table by the
Vivian Hansen heard from M.R.
and Barbara Hansen who are in
Mongolia. They have had a good
trip over and were met by friends
and relatives. They expect their
daughter, Holly, and her six-year-
old son, Asher, of Woodbury, Minn.,
to come there and visit them. They
plan to take a train trip together
across the tundra of Russia. This
trips takes several days and nights.
More details later.
The weather map shows high 80s
all week with a 90 next Monday.
That is nearly ideal temperatures,
of course we still pray for rain.
South Dakota reservoir storage
lists Angostura at 71.2 percent,
Belle Fourche at 97.1 percent,
Deerfield at 99.2 percent, Oahe at
91.9 percent and Pactola at 99.8
percent. There are lots of stock
dams that are very low and muddy.
It was miserable to see cattle
standing in mud just south of
Philip in a small stock dam.
Places that can afford to are
cleaning out dams and/or building
new ones. Houck buffalo ranch
north of Pierre is building several
new dams.
Carol Vogan emailed from Col-
orado Springs that some report
that 85 percent of their local fires
are under control.
My son, Wayne Hansen, Vivian’s
son, drove up in his tiny Jeep CJ5
and brought me some of his best lit-
tle cooked fishes. Thank you.
Our new resident, Helen Larson,
went out with her son and his wife
for supper Thursday evening.
M.R. Hansen emailed from Mon-
golia. They are getting settled, and
already he has given a concrete test
to several students to assess their
knowledge and find out where to
start with the concrete instruc-
tions. He mentioned that prices are
going up in Mongolia since they
last lived there.
Thank you to my nephew,
Leonard Meyer, and his wife, Jean,
Greenfield, Ind., for the beautiful
birthday card.
The May/June Imprimis Publica-
tion of Hillsdale College in Hills-
dale, Miss., had an article based on
their 2013 commencement address
by Ted Cruz, a senator from Texas.
He spoke on “The miracle of free-
dom.” As a law firm partner, he has
been an influential author of many
Supreme Court briefs and argu-
ments. Another feature of this
magazine is “A tribute to Margaret
Thatcher,” by Larry P. Arnn, Pres-
ident of Hillsdale College. I plan to
put this magazine in our Somerset
Court scrapbook so you can read it.

a church full of parents, grandparents and neighbors. This year’s theme was “Kingdom Rock, Where Kids Stand Strong for
God.” The youngsters sang songs, experienced Bible stories, played with gizmos at Imagination Station, learned about an-
imals to help them remember Bible verses, all while learning ways to stand strong for God. Shown, back row, from left:

Helen Muriel R. Kjos____________________________
Helen Muriel R. Kjos, 93, for-
merly of Philip, S.D., passed away
Monday, June 17, 2013, at the
Hospice House of Campbell
County in Gillette, Wyo.
Helen was born February 12,
1920, in Rapid City to Ned and
Lera (Young) Ronning.
Her father Ned Ronning, was
born in Bergen, Norway, and she
was proud of her Norwegian her-
itage. She was raised with her
three siblings in the “Green” house
on the hill in Philip. As a young
girl, she enjoyed working with her
father, Ned in the family grocery
store and meat market. Her father
raised and bought cattle for use in
the meat market and as such they
always had horses and animals at
the place. She and her siblings
spent much time riding the coun-
try side with their favorite ponies.
Muriel attended school in Philip,
graduating high school in 1938.
She attended business school in
Omaha, Neb., receiving a business
certificate. As a requirement in
business school, she learned short
hand which she remembered all of
her life. Even in her late years of
life she would write herself notes
in shorthand, unfortunately, she
was the only one who could read
them. She began her working ca-
reer in Mitchell, as assistant to a
group of attorneys. During World
War II, she moved to Washington,
D.C., where she worked for the
U.S. Navy in the war department.
She, along with two of her cousins,
lived with five other young women
in an apartment. They traveled ex-
tensively up and down the Atlantic
Coast while there. As the family
will remember she was never with-
out a camera as the boxes of pic-
tures remaining are a testament.
She married Charles Dail Lob-
dell in 1943, and to this union
were born two boys. They divorced
in 1953. As a single mother,
Muriel raised her boys with the
help of Grandpa Ned. She worked
hard so the boys would have the
necessities and she was an excel-
lent example of an honest hard
working mother. The boys do not
recall her ever missing a day of
work due to sickness, even walking
to work when the weather would
not permit the rear wheel drive ‘50
Chevy to go. She began working at
the First National Bank in Philip
in 1954, retiring in 1985.
While in Philip, she made many
close friends and enjoyed a life
time of attending many types of
clubs and parties always willing to
help with what needed done. She
and her close friend, Carol, at-
tended school together in their
early years and remained the
dearest of friends their entire life,
even able to have a brief phone
conversation less than a day prior
to Muriel’s passing.
She spent countless hours with
her “craft projects.” She enjoyed
many, many hours with two of her
granddaughters teaching them to
make stationary with hot glue and
decorating them as well as her
“beading” projects many of which
are still in existence.
She married Lester Kjos in 1967
in Wall and they enjoyed 40 years
together. After they both retired,
they traveled extensively in the
Western United States, as well as
in Canada, Mexico and Hawaii.
She also traveled to Europe twice
and the United Kingdom twice to
visit her son, Bryan, who was in
the military. She was a lifetime
member of the Order of the East-
ern Star, holding many positions.
She traveled to Nova Scotia as
member of the Eastern Star as a
cultural exchange delegate and
made friends there that lasted a
lifetime. She was also a lifetime
member of the American Legion
Muriel is survived by two sons,
Bryan (Susan) Lobdell of Picker-
ington, Ohio, and Barry (Gayle)
Lobdell of Gillette; five grandchil-
dren, Jared Lobdell and partner,
Jennifer Williams, Amarillo,
Texas, Ashley (Dr. John) Tilley

This weekend, June 22 and 23,
was the Oldenberg family reunion
held at the Bad River Senior Citi-
zen’s Center in Philip. A large
group of relatives attended. It was
interesting as the late Shirley
(Wintrode) Hall, Butch’s sister’s
daughter, Debbie Schneider, came.
She said that she had not been
back in this area for 25 years. At-
tending with her was her husband,
David, and her in-laws, Don and
Kathy Schneider, from Texas.
Ruth (Oldenberg) and her two
daughters and their families came.
Ruth’s husband, Don, was unable
to come as he was laid up from re-
cent hip surgery. Nellie (Olden-
berg) and Henry Chapell and their
son and family, Gillette, Wyo., were
there. Kathy (Oldenberg) and Bob
Hamann, Wall, and Esther, Dan’s
wife, and their sons, Heath, and his
wife and their son, Kendric, Min-
neapolis, Minn., and, John, and his
wife attended. Dan was not able to
come. Also there were Mike and
Judy Melvin, Sioux Falls, Jim and
Norma Oldenberg, Philip, Marvin,
Vicki and Mary Eide and grand-
daughter, Kiley Sieler, Grindstone.
Most all stayed for supper, al-
though some left early to go put up
hay and the storm sent some home
before it hit. (Some may wonder
how the Eides are tied up with the
Oldenberg family? Kenneth Eide’s
sister, Marion, was married to Bill
Oldenberg.) Most all of the above
returned the next morning for a
wonderful breakfast cooked by
Henry Chapell and Bob Hamann,
who kicked all the women out of
the kitchen, as this was the men’s
Jim and Norma Oldenberg went
to Rapid City Monday, June 24,
where Jim was to have minor sur-
gery on his eye. The Melvins, who
were guests at Jim and Norma’s,
returned to their home Monday.
Mike Melvin, who had broken his
ankle awhile back, stood the trip
well and it was nice that he could
come and enjoy the get-together.
He has been pretty much home-
The Oldenberg family came to
the Cottonwood area in about 1930
and most of the children married
spouses from this area and most of
their children also married people
from this area. So there is still a lot
of family who reside in this area.
Les (Butch) Wintrode and
LeeAnn Johnson received word
that LeeAnn’s cousin’s life was lost
in a tornado this last week. It
seems that no matter where a dis-
aster hits, it affects someone in our
area. So many of our families have
migrated to other places to make
their homes and the ones who live
and migrated here have families
and friends scattered around the
United States.
Every once in awhile I make a
road trip around the Grindstone
area to see how the crops are com-
ing. Well, the corn that Sloveks
planted on the Miller Scott place, is
up and will be over knee high by
the Fourth of July. Maybe it al-
ready is because I never got out of
my vehicle to check. The winter
wheat looks good and seems to
have long heads. I didn’t check the
wheat to see if the heads are filled,
but it looks great! The millet is
coming up and looks like a good
stand wherever it is planted. The
oats is heading out and is such a
pretty color in the morning sun-
shine and it also looks good. Some
are still planting hay foliage crops.
I came up with the idea that with
weather like we had Monday, we
need another rain. I guess that in
Philip they received an inch of rain
or more. Saturday night we got a

Rich Smith has been enjoying
some days in Philip playing cards
this week. I don’t see him much
only when we are both in town. So
I don’t know if he has had any fam-
ily visiting this week. Usually,
there are family who come often to
visit him. And at times they invite
me over to spend time with them
which I enjoy immensely. Rich and
I are the only remaining kids in the
Roy Smith family of nine kids. Rich
is 95 years old and will be 96 in Oc-
tober and I am 79 and will be 80 in
September. Sure doesn’t take long
to join the older generation.
Sympathy goes out to the fami-
lies of Alvin Lee Coleman and Zane
Nelson. They will be missed.

I was having breakfast at Mel’s
diner in nearby Purxico one morn-
ing with my friend, Clyde Barn-
field. As he got up from the table to
leave, I asked Clyde if he had a big
day planned? “I sure do,” he said.

Midland News
How about that full moon
Sunday evening? It was one of
those Kodak moments as that
moon shown out over the earth
below. The weather has been a
bit unsettled with its lightning
and thunderstorms, wind, hail
and rains. Lightning streaked
across the sky with thunder fol-
lowing close by. As a kid growing
up, I remember being told that
when you hear the thunder it
means you weren’t struck by
lightning. Here in town our rain
gauge showed 1.10” and that
night we had 1.20”, the wind was
blowing with rain pouring down
and water running down the
street. Luckily we didn’t get
much hail, but some places did.
Hearing Spearfish was getting
some weather, we called our
daughter, April. She reported
there was flash flooding with
some folks getting water in their
basements and some had water
coming up into their cars. They
felt fortunate not to be one of
them. This Monday evening, the
sky is becoming over-cast once
again. It’s been a rather humid,
hot day, so we will see what that
brings! My news will be rather
short this week. Our daughter,
Charlene, left for Mitchell this
Monday morning, spending the
night at her brother, Christopher
and Stephanie’s. She’s been en-
joying spending more time with
family in South Dakota this sum-
mer before she heads out on an-
other adventure. This time, for
the most part, she is going to nor-
mal places, England, Wales, Scot-
land and Ireland. Always
wanting to go to a Spanish speak-
ing country because of teaching
Spanish, she is going to Columbia
before heading back to Bismarck
for another school year.
Dan and Dorothy Root and
their daughter, Jada, all of River-
ton, Wyo., came for a visit with
Roy and Carol Hunt last Thurs-
day. Friday night supper guests
at Roy and Carol’s were Dan,
Dorothy and Jada, Sam Root,
Keith Hunt, Christine Niedan,
Jan Tolton, Cam and Michelle,
all of Midland, and Teresa
Palmer, Murdo. Saturday, Roots
headed for Philip as Dorothy’s
high school class was having a
50-year-class reunion.
Saturday, June 22, Lisa, Dei-
dra, Blake, and Stuart Hackerott
and a friend of Stuart’s (Marty),
all of Smith Center, Kan., arrived
in Midland. Most of the time was
spent with other family members
going through mom, Ida Hunt’s
stuff. The Kansas folks left for
home Thursday, June 27.
Keith Hunt took the boys to
Mt. Rushmore Tuesday as Stu-
art’s friend had never been to
South Dakota. Teresa, Lisa, Dei-
dra and Christine went to Rapid
City as Teresa had a doctor’s ap-
pointment. They met the others
in Rapid City, eating out, and
doing some shopping. Sunday,
April Neuhauser and Penny
Schafer came from Pierre to visit
with Lisa and family. Ted and
Dena Hunt and Teresa were in
Midland over the weekend help-
ing go through Ida’s stuff. Any-
one who has lost a family
member knows it is not an easy
time going through those things
that are from a lifetime of living.
There are a lot of memories in
that stuff. Ted and Dena had
been in Philip for their celebra-
Deb Snook and son, Garrett,
have been touring Germany,
Switzerland and Austria with the
German Club, Garrett being a
member and Deb a chaperone for
the group. They will be returning
this week. Sounds like a most in-
teresting opportunity!
The Midland Market, with the
Hawaiian theme Friday evening,
was well attended. Second Cen-
tury Dev., Inc. served the luau
style dinner, featuring meats,
salad, homemade breads, fruit
kabobs, and punch. Many came
dressed in their Hawaiian shirts,
sandals, muu muus, and grass
skirts. The younger people tried
their skill at the limbo and
piñata. Threatening clouds sent
everyone home earlier than
planned, but they took time to
snap up the fresh produce, baked
goods, and hand crafted items
which are always in abundance.
Folks much appreciate and want
to thank those who provide the
music and food each evening of
the market. This really makes
the event special.
Pat and Sophie Foley attended
a 70th and 80th birthday party
for his aunt and uncle, Tom and
Ann Foley, in Philip Saturday.
The remaining three siblings of
his father were in attendance,
one coming from California and
one from Michigan and another
aunt came from Sioux Falls. Tom
and Ann were pleasantly sur-
prised. Happy birthday wishes!
A birthday party is being held
for Helen Ostlien at the Philip
Nursing Home in Philip Friday,
around 2:00 or 2:30. Happy birth-
day wishes, Helen.
Gene and Audrey Jones left
for Rapid City June 13 spending
the night with daughter Julie,
Jer and Lane Whitcher. Friday
morning, they met their grand-
son, Dackery Geiman, at the air-
port and all flew to Mesa, Ariz.
From there they drove to
Flagstaff, Ariz., and met the rest
of the family. All seven of the
Jones’ kids and families, except
Brandon Dale, who stayed home

daughter, Catherine and Ian
Tracy. Zoey Nierman, daughter
of Todd and Brenda Nierman,
was the flower girl. Later, a re-
ception and dance was enjoyed by
all. Sunday some headed towards
home while others enjoyed being
tourists for a few more days. Con-
gratulations to Rich and Jesie-
lene’s daughter, Catherine and
Gene and Audrey Jones re-
turned home from Arizona in
time for the burial of their
brother-in-law, Charles
Wyman's, ashes. They enjoyed
getting reacquainted with the
Wyman children and grandchil-
dren at the social gathering that
followed in the park. Monday
night guests of Gene and Audrey
Jones were Christine and Gary
Ryan from Tolna, N.D., Tony and
LaVon Nemec and daughter,

An annual powwow for seniors
is held in Lower Brule. This year
Rylan Malfero, son of John and
Dana Malfero, and grandson of
Phil and Bernie Meyers, all of
Pierre, was honored at the pow-
wow. Rylan has attended many
events in Lower Brule with his
grandfather, Phil, and he made
such an impression on the com-
munity because of his interest in
the Native American culture that
the Goodlow family wanted to
honor Rylan. Rylan and his
grandfather were called out of
the crowd and Rylan was pre-
sented with a star quilt, then as
is the custom, spectators come to
congratulate the honoree, then
the group all participated in a cir-
cle dance. John Behealer, direc-
tor of the Indian Foundation of
South Dakota, spoke on how,
with Rylan’s interest in Native
American heritage, it was an
honor to recognize Rylan in an
assembly of the Lower Brule
community. Rylan enjoys draw-
ing Native American items. He
was presented with a CD of
Lakota songs and he is able to
sing along in the Lakota lan-
Phil Meyers, who is a guid-
ance counselor at Lower Brule,
just completed his 10th year at
Lower Brule. Phil was selected by
the senior class to be their com-
mencement speaker this year.
Phil felt greatly honored, as this
is the third time he has been the
commencement speaker for sen-
iors at Lower Brule. Phil has
been honored with eight beauti-
ful star quilts over the 10 years
he has been in Lower Brule. Phil
has been honored at pow-wows.
He has been the recipient of the
Public Service Award, which was
presented at the Lakota Nations
Invitational ceremonies in Rapid
City. He is also a godparent to a
Lakota child of former students
from Lower Brule. A family of a
former student who Phil became
close to had him be an honorary
pallbearer, and has become the
custom, Phil spoke at the services
about the life of this student. The
family was so taken by his words
about their son, that they pre-
sented him with one of the young
mans star quilts. Phil tells that
the entire Lower Brule commu-
nity has been extremely cordial
and supportive of him. He has be-
come very attached to the com-
munity and particularly students
of Lower Brule.
Phil was pleased and humbled
as he was selected as Staff of the
Year in Lower Brule. He will re-
ceive a letterman jacket for being
selected. A point of interest is
that Phil’s grandchildren have al-
ways called him Bahpa. As it
turns out Bahpa is a Lakota word
which means dried meat. Phil al-
ways replies that for his age, the
name is appropriate. In hearing
Phil talk of the Lower Brule com-
munity and the students, you feel
how much he truly cares about
those kids. Congratulations, Phil!
For those of you whose news I
missed this week, I hope to be
more on track next week. En-
joyed reading an article by
Bernie Hunhoff and Roger Holtz-
mann,“Stories from our Skies” in
the July-August South Dakota
magazine. Marsha Sumpter,
weekly local news reporter for
the Pioneer Review, was featured
in the article as it told of her joy
in flying her airplane.
The saying on my Amish cal-
endar for this day June 25th
says, “Life is just one long vaca-
tion for people who love their
work.” Have a good day and a
good week!
Descendents of the late Fred and
Mabel Foster had a family gather-
ing at the Midland City Park on
Saturday, June 22.
James Ferdinand Foster, com-
monly known as Fred, was born
July 15, 1906, near Woodstock,
Minn. where he grew to manhood.
On December 5, 1928, he married
Mabel Alyvina Thompson of
Hadley, Minn. The couple lived on
farms the first two years, and then
moved to Lake Wilson where Fred
held the position as carpenter,
sheep shearer, city marshal and
mechanic. According to family,
Fred played the violin and Mabel
sang at barn dances when living in
Minnesota. Folks had a whole lot of
fun at those barn dances. Later
they moved to Holland, Minn.
where Fred operated a garage of
his own, was fire chief, city mar-
shal and constable. In 1941, he
came to Midland as hay manager
bailing hay for the government
during the war, later ran a garage
of his own, and built the Midland
Community fire truck. It was the
last move for Fred and Mabel. His
garage was south of the Open Bible
Church and west of where Oscar
and Helen Merkle had lived. In the
history of that truck, it told that
the directors decided to”build their
own,” so, Fred Foster, a local me-
chanic who’d had wide experience
in designing and constructing fire
fighting equipment, was contacted
to build the truck keeping in mind
its intended use for this particular
community. It told there were 223
contributors to the fund. In the his-
tory article it told that many who
had seen that truck in operation,
and who were familiar with fire
fighting trucks in general, stated
this was the best fire truck they
had ever seen, especially for this
particular community.
Fred and Mabel had 10 children,
Fred died in 1949 at the age of 43.
Times were not easy for Mabel with
a large family to care for and later
suffering from extreme rheumatoid
arthritis. But, she kept a positive
attitude and saw her family raised.
Her faith helped her through those
difficult times; she enjoyed having
Bible study in her home with ladies
in the community. She loved to
bake, can, and put together a num-
ber of handwritten recipe books
with positive messages throughout
those cookbooks. Their son, Orville
Foster, passed away a number of
years ago, the nine remaining
brothers and sisters were all in
Midland for the family gathering
this 22nd day of June. Those there
were: Eldena Haerer and husband,
Wayne; son Wayne Dean and fam-
ily of Cheval, Alaska; daughter,
Bonna and Roger Fortune and son,
Darwin and Betty Haerer, and two
of their grandkids; Bonnie Martin
and husband, Fuzz, and family;
Darlene Knight and husband, Bud,
and son, Jerry, and friend Phyllis
from Rushville, Nebr., and son,
Bud Knight, Jr. and wife, Gina,
from Wright, Wyo.; Faye Reuer and
son, Todd, and friend, Jodie, At-
lanta, Iowa; Les Foster, son, David,
a grandson, and daughter, Jill and
husband, Scott, all from Dublin,
Ga.; Leola Schultz and husband,
Shorty of Marietta, Minn.; Mary
Lou Wallner and husband Jerry,
Ramsey, Minn.; James Foster and
wife, Cheryl, Rapid City, and
Jessie Mae Brewer and husband,
John, son Wes and family all of
Rapid City; Dennis Weiss and son,
Buffalo, Minn., and Bob Weiss,
South Dakota. Friends of the Fos-
ter family were also there for visit-
ing and some catch up time. The
family enjoyed a time of being to-
gether; sharing their journey since
last time they were together. It was
good to see everyone, and to visit
with former classmates of ours, Les
and Mary Lou.
An added addition to the gather-
ing involved a special trunk made
for Mary Lou by Bill Harry for her
16th birthday. Her mom, Mabel,
had asked Bill to make this for her.
In Mary Lou’s words, “Growing up
in Midland seemed like a big city
when I was younger. Coming from
a big family of 10, sharing bed-
rooms got a little cramped at times.
My mother must have realized that
I wanted something of my own for
my personal use, so she asked Bill
Harry, a very nice neighbor man, if
he would make me a trunk for my
16th golden birthday. I loved this
trunk and kept everything I cher-
ished in it. I loved to bake and kept
a lot of my baked goods hidden in
my trunk for dessert, other wise
they would be all eaten before din-
ner. My brother, Les, broke the
lock on that trunk to get the fresh
baked pie inside. After that I left
the trunk unlocked.” Mary Lou’s
husband, Jerry, put a nice covering
of where they lock had been with
wood that matched the wood of the
trunk. “After graduating from high
school in 1960, I moved to New Un-
derwood to manage a restaurant,
and so did my trunk. My trunk was
my suitcase. That trunk went with
me to Rapid City where I went to
business college, later working for
Northwestern Bell, my trunk and I
moved again; marrying my lifetime
partner, Jerry Wallner, my trunk
and I moved to Minnesota where
Jerry and I lived. Over the years
we’ve made some moves in Min-
nesota and my trunk did, too.
“Inside my trunk I had put all
my collectables from growing up.
One item was never removed from
my trunk. When I was 18 and a
senior in high school I was chosen
Midland’s very first valentine
sweetheart and was given a box of
chocolates and a small Barbie style
doll whose eyes open and shut. I
believe along with my trunk, that
doll belongs in Midland, South
Dakota, maybe that should be its
next home. I will be returning my
trunk made by Bill Harry back to
his family in Midland, as Bill
passed away in 1969. Bill was one
of those people who were always
doing nice things for kids who lived
in Midland. Returning the trunk
makes me feel good knowing his
family can enjoy it as I have. The
trunk will be given to Keith Harry,
a grandson, of Bill Harry.”
A lifetime of memories goes with
that trunk, as it has come full circle
to the town of Midland from which
it came, so many years ago. It’s off
on another journey, a journey of
making memories with family
members of Bill Harry.

is a nonprofit
Haste makes waste and that is
what happened last week with the
news. Maybe it is a “senior mo-
ment” but at any rate, I failed to
finish up the news Tony Harty
gave me. He was busy Saturday in
Philip arriving in time for the pa-
rade, taking in the luncheon at the
senior citizens, watched the water
fight and blow-up fun, then went
to the ranch horse races, which a
couple of times were almost a
rodeo, had supper at the steak-out
then returned to Kadoka. Sunday,
it rained in the early morning, but
let up just as he got to church. Had
dinner out, then called it a day.
Ralph and Cathy Fiedler arrived
in Philip Friday night and joined
Richard and Diana Stewart and
went to the bronc ride and were
overnight guests at their house.
Saturday morning, they watched
the parade with mom, Katy Drage-
set, at the nursing home, then vis-
ited until it was time for her lunch,
packed up their stuff and headed
for Sturgis.
Now, on with this week’s news
and hope I don’t have the same
memory lapses. The June 20,
Rapid City Journal column of
“Woster in the Wild” by Kevin
Woster was comical. A funny
thing happened to him on the way
to Pierre for the unveiling of the
three bronze statues for the Trail
of Governors when he stopped off
in Philip and did a little fishing in
Lake Waggoner. To quote Kevin,
“As I pulled out onto Highway 14
at Philip, reached up to adust my
sunglasses and caught a whiff of
largemouth bass…Or was it
bluegill? Or crappie? I’d caught all
three during a 45-minute “rest
stop on the road from Rapid City
to Pierre….but the angling mind is
a mercurial creature. As I cruised
through Philip, I found myself
thinking: “Waggoner.” “That’s as
in Lake Waggoner, a reliable fish-
ing hole two miles north and a half
mile northeast of town…” Nice to
see the attributes of Lake Wag-
Monday was a day for quite a
few visitors at our house. Tony
Harty came by and gave me his
news for the week and engaged me
in farkle games. (It’s the only game
I can play easily.) Phyllis Word
stopped by and used the inversion
table and Dean Parsons stopped
for a visit while he was out and
about looking at the crops in the
area. The wheat is starting to even
out and heading in most all fields.
From the road it looks pretty good.
Now get up in the air and things
look a little different. You see
down through the crop and the
ground shows in most, only the
very best look good and green from
the air. As I held the mirror above
my head to check on the hair, it
didn’t look too good from above ei-
ther, a pretty poor crop of gray
hair. Don and Vi Moody returned
the trailer used for the Class of ’63
float and visited as well. It was a
nice afternoon.
Tony Harty was on the road
early Monday morning to Philip to
meet Ramona Buchholz where the
Hutterites were busy delivering
their produce. He then came back
to Kadoka and the chicken fellows
arrived and he was busy having
his customers come by and get
their chickens, pot pies, etc.
Tuesday, I was busy with some
sign business, then took a trip to
Howes and fixed supper for Bill
when he got back from the field.
Had a nice visit with Bob and
Lavonne Hansen while they were
doing some yard work. I stayed
over, returning home Wednesday
morning early and took the little
Haakon County Prairie Trans-
portation van to Rapid with a
client. As soon as I got home, I de-
livered some things around town
that I had completed, got some
groceries Bill needed and went to
Howes to fix supper and spend the
Don and Vi Moody finished bal-
ing the first three hayfields they
had started on and when rain
beckoned again they took the op-
portunity to go on a mini-vacation
and spend time with a few more
classmates in the Black Hills area.
They left Wednesday afternoon for
their Rapid Valley home and that
afternoon got some finishing
touches done on mowing along
their little private highway en-
trance area, so all is nice and
pretty. They received lots of rain
again at both places, one in Rapid
Valley l.70” and at the ranch pos-
sibly around a couple of inches ac-
cording to some reports they had
from reporting areas.
Tony Harty went out to break-
fast Wednesday then took it easy
the rest of the day. Thursday, he
visited his niece, Kathy Brown, in
the afternoon
Sandee Gittings went to Huron
after work Wednesday to be on
hand for a meeting at the South
Dakota Farmers Union Thursday
and returned home Thursday
Thursday morning, I was on the
road to Rapid City with the HCPT
van after I got home from Howes.
Thursday morning, Cathy
Fiedler went over to Spearfish and
met Sherry Hanson and Elsie,
where Lynette Klumb works, for
lunch. She did some shopping and
then returned home. Cathy
stopped at her friend, Sonja’s, in
Whitewood for a visit. It has been
nice temperature wise in the
Stugis area, mostly in the 70s all
week. A thunderstorm rolled
through on Saturday night about
5:30 with some wind and small
hail and an inch of rain.
Thursday afternoon, Don and Vi
Moody were guests at an RV park
for the afternoon of visiting with
Lynn and Nina Nachtigall, Chuck
and Mary Lou (Michael) Schimke,
and friends from Custer, Frank
and Sherri Rafael, as well as Earl
and his friend, Mrs. Kieffer, who
live in the area.They all enjoyed
dinner and a musical at the
restaurant there that evening.
Kelsey Gittings took George and
Sandee Gittings to town for a
steak supper Friday evening. Dave
Tvedten, Blue Earth, Minn., and
Jim Malwitz, Vadnais Heights,
Minn., spent Friday and Saturday
nights at George and Sandee’s.
They were in the area to hunt
prairie dogs. George and Kesley
Gittings took them to the Philip
O'Connor home at Capa Saturday.
The guys went on to Rapid City
Sunday to visit a friend.
Friday, Don and Vi Moody drove
to Deadwood for lunch and drove
in rain most of the day both ways,
but nothing severe. A little hail
came that morning and two cars
pulled into Don and Vi's private
drive and parked under the first
huge cottonwood tree to protect
their cars. First time they had
seen that happen, while they were
there anyway. Richard and Susan
left a rhubarb dessert made from
Don and Vi's plant in the north
backyard that has a stake by it so
nobody mows it. It's a shared plant
by all!
After the rain Friday, the Hut-
terites came by after being in Mar-
tin and brought some more
produce to Tony Harty. Tony
checked around town to see how
much water was running. The big
tent was set up on main street in
downtown Kadoka and folks were
getting ready for the all class re-
union held over the weekend.
Here in Kadoka, Mike Vetter
stopped by on water business in
the morning Friday. It got so black
out at 9:00 a.m. we had to turn on
the lights to see the business at
hand. Then it started to rain, our
gauge showed 1.9” of rain in a
short time. Tony Harty stopped by
for a brief visit, then I left for
Sioux Falls. Grandson Eric Seager
and Chaciel hosted a grilling good
supper at their house. Shelley Sea-
ger came up from Sutton, Neb.,
and Amanda and Adam Claflin
came over and I got there just in
time for supper too. Shelley and I
were overnight guests at the
Claflin home. Saturday morning
was a nice overcast day and not too
hot. Shelley, Amanda, Adam and I
met Connie Muller, sister to Tim
May, her daughter, Amy, and
daughter-in- law and children for
the “Surviving after Suicide” walk
held in the Falls Park. We walked
in memory of Tim May and Sandra
May. Jim Wooster was emcee for
the event and a very large crowd
attended. Suicide affects so many
lives. Shelley had treated us with
cinnamon rolls after the walk,
then she headed back to Sutton. I
stayed at Amanda and Adam’s and
we did a lot of yard work and I
tried to earn my keep. Adam
grilled that evening and the Eric
Seager family joined us for an
early supper, then we all visited at
Eric's and had desert and I enjoyed
the bath time with Eli before we
called it a night. Sunday morning,
Amanda and Adam were off for a
May family reunion and I had
breakfast with Eric, Chaciel,
Aviana and Eli, then it was time to
get on the road home. I got part of
the yard mowed when I got home.
Mel Smith came by for a visit and
some business and Phyllis Word
also came by for a visit.
Saturday, Don and Vi Moody
toured Hill City and met again
with most of the same group men-
tioned above, for a barbecue that
evening at Frank and Sherri's
home southwest of Custer. That
was much fun also and at Hill City
they had pictures taken with the
four Mt. Rushmore impersonators
who appeared to be touring around
the area all dressed up, fully
suited, looking like the four presi-
dents as they appear at Mt. Rush-
more. It was so cute. Mary Lou
had a moment to visit Judy Heeb
at her shop on main street before
the rest of the folks met at an ice
cream parlor downtown Hill City.
What a busy place.
Here in Kadoka Saturday, the
rain partially dampened the activ-
ities. The burger feed did go on as
usual and folks ate under the tent.
Tony enjoyed visiting with lots of
folks and family who had come up
from Nebraska. He attended the
ranch rodeo in the afternoon and
said it was a real muddy event.
The dance suffered because of the
rain, but it wasn’t too cold, so quite
a few hardy souls enjoyed the
event. Tony went to Interior for
supper and enjoyed visiting with
some folks who are working in the
area for the summer. Sunday after
church, Tony had dinner out then
took it easy.
Sunday, Don and Vi Moody were
in Rapid City and ran into Philip
folks around and about also. They
started getting packed for their
trip back to the ranch as weather
sounded like a good haying week.
So the little mini-vacation was en-
joyable and tours throughout the
Black Hills was beautiful and
green. Mary Lou and Chuck will
be leaving for Wessington Springs
to visit Chuck's family before re-
turning to their home in Albu-
querque, N.M. They had much fun
at the Philip Scottie Class of 1963
reunion and visiting friends in the
Philip area as well.

The 2013 South Dakota High
School Rodeo finals were held last
week, June 19-23 at the Roundup
grounds in Belle Fourche.
Area contestants fought hard for
the spots to go to the national fi-
nals in Rock Springs, Wyo. in July.
Scores were affected by the heavy
rains, especially for the short go.
Point scoring for the finals in-
cludes 15 places. First place is
given 15 points down to 15th place
which is awarded one point. In in-
stances where there is the same
score the points are totaled and
then divided equally. The first and
second rounds each had 15 plac-
ings; the short go had 10. Average
winners are based upon totaled
scores from the three rounds.
The champion and runner-up
spots are chosen by the total of all
the points earned during the sea-
son plus, those at the finals. The
top four contestants from each
event move on to the national fi-
In some cases, while a contestant
may not have had the best state fi-
nals, the had enough season points
to place them in the top 15 of total
points for the year.

The annual girls’ and boys’ basketball camp for second through fifth grades youth was held Monday and Tuesday, June 17-
18, in the Philip High School gymnasium. The coaches were Terry Holman and Ambur Rush, with help from 13 assistant
coaches. All participants, which included youth from Philip, Midland, Kadoka, Wall and New Underwood, received training
in the basics, practice and t-shirts. “As usual, we had a great group of kids eager to learn more about basketball and improve
on the skills they already have. They worked hard on their basic fundamentals of the game with coaches emphasizing team-
work, good sportsmanship and most of all, having fun. Hopefully, keeping it fun for them as they are learning the game will
keep them wanting to pick up a basketball and continue to play as they get older,” stated Rush. Shown, back row, from left,
are assistant coaches Jenny Terkildsen, Jaisa Snyder, Bridger Turner, Nelson Holman, Katie Hostutler, Cylver Lurz, Tayta
West, RaeAnn Snyder and Jenna Finn, and coaches Holman and Rush. Fourth row: Addie Johnson, Dawson Reckling, Denton

Spring has arrived and brought
new wildlife to our countryside. In
the next couple months, people will
start to see baby animals of all
Although someone may see a
harmless baby animal, good caring
intentions can create harm when it
comes to picking up seemingly
abandoned, orphaned or otherwise
misplaced young wildlife. You may
think the rescue of a fawn or baby
animal is helpful or humane, but
many times it can create more
problems than just leaving it be.
Typical issues are with baby
deer, fawns. The mother leaves her
fawn for short periods, so she can
feed and make up for the nutrients
she has lost during the fawning
process, but she will return for her
child-rearing duties.
When a fawn is born they have
no scent. So with mom leaving and
keeping a good distance away, it is
actually a defense technique for the
fawn to stay still and not move in
hope the predator will head toward
the scent of mom.
Picking up a young fawn could
also leave a human scent. If
masked with a scent the fawn could
be more susceptible to predators
and possibly cause the mother to
reject it. Although most problems
occur with fawns, there are all
kinds of wild animal babies that
get picked up every year.
So as a wildlife conservation offi-
cer, I ask you to admire nature’s
newborn creatures, but please let
them grow in the wild with their
wild siblings.
If you care, leave it there – wildlife

Last week’s picture: Eye on Kiddie Park play structure. Around Philip there are
many architectural elements on buildings as well as other items that we see on a
daily basis. But, can you identify them when given just an upclose snapshot?
Here’s one for you to try. The answer will be in the next week’s Pioneer Review.

Greetings from warm, overcast,
muggy, northeast Haakon County.
We received about a half an inch of
rain over the weekend, and we
could use some more. It is amazing
to me how quickly things dry out,
especially when we have strong
winds like we had yesterday.
Most everyone I talked to men-
tioned that they are in the process
of putting up hay. The hay this
year is truly a blessing, because
with last year's dry conditions,
many folks used up most of their
feed and headed into spring with-
out much carryover. I know that
everyone gets in a hurry trying to
get the hay baled before the next
rain shower or wind event, but
hopefully they will take time to be
The wind was really blowing at
our place Monday. I, personally,
am not a fan of strong wind. I don't
know why it is, but when the wind
is howling, it seems like I get more
distracted than usual, which isn't a
good thing. Thankfully, this morn-
ing we are enjoying a gentle breeze,
so I can concentrate and get things
On to the news.
Last Tuesday, Lola Roseth was
in Philip for a meeting. Following
the meeting, Lola and her sister,
Linda Smith, headed to Rapid City
to help their mother, Joy Klima,
celebrate her 87th birthday. Joyce
Glenn and Jeannette Shockley,
both former friends and neighbors
from Belvidere days, also joined
Joy's birthday celebration.
Dick and Gene Hudson went to
Sioux Falls last Tuesday and spent
the night so Dick could be on hand
for a doctor's appointment Wednes-
day. Haying has been keeping
them busy at the Hudson place,
and Gene has been busy with her
yard and garden. Gene also helps
out with the haying duties – she
was raking hay Monday. Dick and
Gene's grandson, Avery, is back
from his trip to Washington, D.C. –
sounds like he had a great time,
but I don't have any details. Grand-
son Noah is attending Victory Cen-
ter Bible Camp near Fort Pierre
this week. Connie Hudson Johnson
provided lunch for church this
week, and Gene served the lunch
since Connie couldn't be there.
Julian and Coreen Roseth had a
houseful of grandchildren Monday
through Thursday of last week.
Their daughter, Kristin Martin,
had meetings in Pierre, so the
three youngsters came to stay with
grandma and grandpa. Julian and
Coreen celebrated 38 years of mar-
riage on June 21 – congratulations!
Arlyne Markwed was in Pierre
last Wednesday to celebrate her
niece, Pam Kendall's, birthday.
Others attending the birthday
luncheon were Emily Sammons,
Jeanine Gabriel and Coreen Nor-
man. Saturday, Billy and Arlyne
were in Wall to attend a birthday
party for their grandson, Damian

they were gone. Sunday, Billy and
Arlyne attended church at Deep
Frank and Shirley Halligan were
in Pierre last Monday to attend
Florence Williams Halligan's fu-
neral. Our condolences to her fam-
ily. Saturday the 22nd, was Frank
and Shirley's 39th anniversary,
(Congratulations to them!) so they
drove out to Rapid City for the day.
They came home ahead of the dark
clouds that were brewing.
News from last week – Clint,
Laura and Alivya Alleman have
been busy. Everyone on the ranch
participates in keeping Clint going
in the fields and prepping for the
next thing on the list. Alivya likes
to spot her daddy in the tractor and
will probably tell anyone the story
about the "Big-Fast-Turtle" they
found while in the field. According
to Clint and Laura, with these fun
experiences, Alivya often reminds
them to look at the small things as
They celebrated anniversaries of
their parents – Clark and Carmen
Alleman and Randy and Joy Yost.
It is wonderful for Clint and Laura
to be inspired by such wonderful
loving parents. According to them,
with the grass still green and
plants growing and popping
through the ground, they know
that they are blessed.
This week from the Clint and
Laura Alleman household, they
continue to be super happy and
crazy busy. With planting finally
complete, Clint has been hauling
with the semi and keeping after
cows and bulls on top of everything
else he does for his family. As busy
as he is, Clint still found the time
to pick prairie flowers to surprise
Laura before he took her and
Alivya out for supper. (All you
other young fellas, take note! The
old fellas could take note also.)
Alivya spent some time with
grandparents Clark and Carmen
this week while Laura finished up
a project. Clint and Laura also en-
joyed a little bit of Oahe Days Sat-
urday as they needed some parts in
town. They thought a quick look at
the celebration and some cotton
candy sounded pretty good. Sun-
day, they enjoyed lunch at the Yost
Kevin Neuhauser had overnight
guests last Tuesday. His sister,
Connie Boger, and her grandson,
Payton Boger, had a few days off
between fairs in Hamel, Minn.,
and Grand Forks, N.D., so they
came to visit Ruth Neuhauser in
Highmore and then came to the
ranch. Mary came out and spent
the night also so she could get in
some visiting. Connie left early
Wednesday, stopped by Highmore
again, and then on to Arkansas to
take care of some business before
rejoining her husband, Bunky, and
crew in Minnesota. They open in
Grand Forks on June 26. Kevin
went to Pierre Friday to run er-
rands and then watched the Oahe
Days parade. Craig Neuhauser had
some of his antique tractors in this
year's parade – they are pretty spe-
cial. Kevin and Mary then joined
Mitch and Corrine Norman and
Zay and Carrie Norman for supper
at a local restaurant. Mary re-
turned to town and went with her
sister, Cindy Gerber, to a family re-
union on her mother’s side of the
Polly Bruce said that a crew has
been working on a deck at their
son, Vince's, home. Last Tuesday,
Vince had the misfortune of cutting
his hand, so his wife, Katie, took
him to the emergency room for
stitches while the rest of the crew
continued working. The stitches
slowed Vince up a bit, but it hasn't
stopped him from haying activities.
Friday, Bill and Polly's grandson,
Jessi Lutter, went to his aunt and
uncle's place, Doyle and Marcia Si-
mons, to help work cattle. From
there, he went back to his home in
Ashton. He'll be attending a couple
of camps before he returns to the
Bruce ranch in a few weeks. Bill
and Polly attended church in
Pierre Sunday. They had intended
to attend church Saturday night in
Midland, but the threatening
clouds caused them to rethink their
plans. While they were in Pierre,
they visited at the home of their
son, Andy. Their son, David Bruce,
is at the ranch again this week,
helping with haying and other ac-
Steve McDaniel and his crew
have been busy with haying as
well. Last weekend, he and his son,
Tucker, took part in a "horse trailer
roping" in Philip – the winner
takes home the horse trailer. This
year's winner was Tate Cowan of
Max and Joyce Jones attended
an Eastern Star meeting Thursday
night, and they initiated one new
member. Saturday, they were in
Chamberlain to attend a wedding.
All the other days have been busy
as well, with kids' activities and
farm activities. Tis the season, I
Kelly Briggs and children spent
last weekend in Pierre at the home
of her parents. All of her sisters
were home, so they had a lot of
quality family time. Chase Briggs
has been busy haying.
Marge Briggs stays busy read-
ing, mending, doing housework,
etc. Lynn is in charge of the gar-
den, and it is going well. It isn't
easy for Marge to make it to the
garden, so Lynn shows her pictures
of the progress – sounds like a good
