Ruby Gabriel – published author Range monitoring, research outlined
by Del Bartels “It’s More Than a Place ... West River,” is a historical synopsis of the Grindstone area. The book has been released by local resident and now published author, Ruby Gabriel. After Gabriel snapped a sunrise silhouette photo of the Pleasant Valley School building on Christmas morning, 2007, her sister commented that someone should tell the stories of the area before those stories were lost. Within the next few months, Gabriel discovered in her father’s desk drawer the history of her country school, thus further intriguing her sense of history. Soon after that, a King family descendent now living out of state visited the old Dowling Church. He had memories of it from when he was only six years old. Gabriel unlocked the building and allowed him and his wife in, where the man reminisced. A few weeks later, Gabriel received from him a copy of Bessie King’s old family diary, which contained a wealth of history on the area. Gabriel set out to be that someone to tell the stories. The cover of the 100-page book displays the photo that started the project. The stories inside take the reader back to when the developing community was part of the Great Sioux Reservation. Though the book’s direction is varied, “everything in here goes together,” said Gabriel, who clarified, “I wanted to write about ranching.” The indexed documentation uses old newspaper clippings, mostly from the South shot dead during a poker game. The information runs the gamut of 710 rabbits being killed during a two-day hunt, to poetry about the old schoolhouse chalkboard, to obituaries of people in the Dowling Community Church Cemetery. “There’s a whole section of babies buried out there. It’s very sad,” said Gabriel. In putting the book together, Gabriel said, “I had a wonderful time. I think if you are going to be addicted to something, history is a great thing.” One of the quoted early newspapers was The Grindstone Bee. “The whole thing was a hoot,” said Gabriel, who found that the paper’s owner, William Henry Bruno, would “publish whenever I feel like it or have time to waste.” He would barter for payment, but would not accept prunes. Newspapers were important in the area’s early history because the Homesteading Act required potential landowners to publish their stakes in a newspaper five consecutive times. Gabriel has been asked to hold book signings, at Stoneville, July 21, at Chamberlain where the book was printed, and tentatively at Union Center. She is already working on her next book, about ghost towns of Meade and Perkins counties.

After the research, “I almost feel like I was there when this happened,” said Gabriel. “I just feel God has lead me to do this. He gave me a wonderful sunrise, and he gave me these people who were lost on the steps of the Dowling Church.” “I couldn’t gather all the information and retell the stories of Jamie Leaghton Gilmore better than was done by the newspapers,” said Gabriel, who included stories of Gilmore and three other historical murderers. She noted that the town of Philip’s namesake, Scotty Philip, was the executor of the property of Mexican Ed, who was

Mitch Faulkner, front, discusses rangeland monitoring with producers at the Rangeland Days held at the Cottonwood Range and Livestock Research Station west of Philip last week. Photo by Nancy Haigh by Nancy Haigh Range monitoring and research studies were discussed with attendees at the Rangeland Days and Soils Days west of Philip June 19 and 20. South Dakota State University and National Resources Conservation Service personnel presented information and discussed the findings and applications. The adult program was held at the Cottonwood Range and Livestock Reseach Station. Mitch Faulkner, NRCS rangeland management specialist from Belle Fourche, spoke about the usefulness of monitoring rangelands. By monitoring rangeland the producer can see how his/her management practices affect vegetation and the soil. The first step is to determine your objective, Faulkner said. The objective could be increasing ground cover, changing plant species or their frequency, wildlife habitat, riparian conditions, or how livestock utilize the area. The sites should be recorded at the same time each year to keep an accurate record. The time of year would be based on a producer’s objectives. Faulkner said if they are monitoring for plant vigor, or studying plants in general, early to mid-July would be an ideal time. But if looking for the amount of forage cover then September or Octoually empty the rumen and then the steers will be sent out to graze. She explained that this will allow the researchers to remove the matter, see the availability of feeds and what plants the steers are selecting. The grasses are then returned to the rumen for digestion. Also, by removing matter from the rumen the researchers can check the microbes – bacteria, fungi, and protozoa. Kincheloe noted that each type of microbe helps break down the fibers, starch and fats in the feed and they also produce enzymes which further aid in digestion. Kincheloe said the steers will be moved to McLaughlin and placed in a pasture that has a heavy prairie dog infestation. The study will check to see if the steers will graze the fresh sprouted grasses around the prairie dog town or if they totally leave that area alone and find grazing elsewhere. Attached global positioning system units will also help track where the animals graze. Olson, a range beef specialist, and Kincheloe took the group through the cannulating process. The animals are not harmed by the process in which a veterinarian surgically installs the cannulas. The animals are closely watched until the area heals, at which time they are placed on pastures. Roger Gates, range specialist at the WRAC, took the group south into bordering pastures to review grazing efficiency and profitability of pastures. Gates noted that an ongoing stocking rate study has been conducted since 1943. The study focuses on low to high stocking levels, which then reflect excellent, food and low-fair range conditions, Range Monitoring
Danger on the beach
The beach area of Lake Waggoner was gone over with a large magnet to gather these nails and other rusty dangers. People have been making bonfires from old pallets and not clearing the area afterward. Roger Williams displays a multi-pointed bracket that would have probably gone through most shoes, and really done damage to a youngster’s bare foot. Though the city of Philip crew will be helping with mowing and preparing the area before the Fourth of July fireworks, most of the maintenance work at the lake is done by many volunteers throughout the year.

Commission begins 2013 budgeting
by Nancy Haigh The annual budget process began Tuesday, June 19, for the Haakon County commissioners. Haakon County Auditor Pat Freeman and the commission reviewed a detailed revenue worksheet. Noted were the losses, such as the funds for the veterans service office salary and postage for the Extension office. There had been increases in some funds though. A bit of good news was the South Dakota Department of Revenue’s report that counties can use a three percent consumer price index on property taxes, along with any growth within the county. Director of Equalization Toni Rhodes is not yet certified to assess taxes on property, but could possibly be before the deadline for assessments. The board of commissioners next meeting is their regular monthly meeting, Tuesday, July 3 at 1:00 p.m.

Faulkner stressed the use of photos in recording the sites. He said it is easy to forget exactly how a site looked when the monitoring first started. An overall landscape picture of the site should be taken and, if desired, a closeup of the ground can be taken. He suggested when doing the ground shots, take several along a 100 foot length and place an object in the picture for scale. Notes also need to be taken each time the site is checked. In addition, data such as precipitation for the year, infestations and temperatures should be included. Janna Kincheloe and Ken Olson, both based out of Rapid City’s West River Ag Center, spoke about rumen fistulated steers which SDSU will use for grazing and nutrition research. Kincheloe, a research technician, explained that personnel will man-
Jackson County seeking input on fate of licensing service
At a special Jackson County commissioner’s meeting at 8:00 p.m., Friday, June 29, the commissioners will seek public opinion regarding the fate of the county’s drivers licensing service. Should Jackson County continue providing the service, or discontinue it? Input will be taken from surrounding counties as well. Since the county entered into the agreement with the South Dakota Department of Public Safety in 2004, many of the statewide services have been reduced or eliminated across the state. Jackson County receives five dollars per license fee and the workload has increased throughout the years. The county is considering hiring additional staff for the increased workload. People travel a long distance to obtain their licenses in Jackson County. The service is currently available Monday through Friday. The next nearest places to renew or obtain a license is Murdo, Mission or Martin. These sites offer the service only on specific days. The state has denied Jackson County’s request for allowing the county to retain one-half of the license fee. According to a legal notice, “If funding is not found, the commissioners are considering discontinuing the services.” People are welcome to send written statements to Jackson County Auditor, P.O. Box 280, Kadoka, SD 57543.

This group of bikers stopped in Philip last Saturday as part of their Wild West Tour. The group is comprised entirely of Norwegians who have formed a motorcycle riding group. Together they have toured the United States in 2002, 2009 and this year. In 2009, they stopped in Philip because of Haakon County, which was named after a King Haakon of Norway; which also brought them back this year. This year’s tour started in Los Angeles heading north through the northern tier of states. The 26 riders with 15 bikes will travel 3,300 miles this trip. Photo by Nancy Haigh

Midland farmers market Fridays
The Midland farmers market is open every Friday from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., with vendors offering garden produce and other items. Last Friday, the market was held in the Midland Park. On previous Fridays, because of weather or other events in the park, the market has been at the Midland Senior Citizens Center or the American Legion Hall. The scope and number of vendors also changes from week to week. Although last Friday was a bit breezy and hot, there were over half a dozen vendors, and over 30 browsers. According to Julie Schwalm, it was a nice evening for visiting, enjoying the park and supporting friends and neighbors. Wares included tickets to the home and garden tour, the church centennial cookbook “Trinity Lutheran Temptations,” beets, lettuce, carrots, radishes, broccoli, bok choy, fresh herbs, homemade goods of pies, jelly, donuts, a variety of breads, cookies and bars, aprons, recycle bags and Barbie clothes, soup mixes, biscotti, farm fresh eggs, used books, trinkets and jewelry and snow cones. For the upcoming market, Friday, June 29, Schwalm stated, “We are calling it Pre-Fourth Celebration and encouraging vendors to decorate their tables, and for all to wear patriotic clothing. Pastor Andy Blye and/or Morris Daly will play American/patriotic music and there will also be recorded music. They will be using the sound system that was donated to the American Legion Hall.” “The market welcomes new vendors. Bring your garden produce, homemade goodies and craft items, or just things you want to get rid of.
Students from across South Dakota spread out on pastures southwest of Philip June 19 and 20 to compete in Rangeland Days. The students rotated amongst plots identifying plants and completing site evaluations. Full story and more photos on Photo by Nancy Haigh page eight.

The Community Evangelical Free Church west of Philip sponsored a Vacation Bible School for youngsters four-years-old and older, Tuesday through Friday, June 19-22. Each evening, the youth sang songs, created crafts and played games that were based on the Bible. Under this year’s theme “Paradise Island,” there were beach and island decorations, Bible verse based crafts, self-created snacks and plenty of water games. A total of 20 children were involved, with volunteer leaders also numbering about that many. A stage presentation summarizing the week was done on the last evening. Photo by Bartels

Philip area blood drive July 10 at senior center
Summer is here, with vacations, swimming, barbecues and more. These great summer activities keep people busy – too busy, sometimes, to donate blood. It takes approximately 185 blood donations every day to maintain an adequate blood supply for area hospital patients, patients who are eager to return to their families and the fun of summer. Philip’s next blood drive with United Blood Services is on Tuesday, July 10, from 10:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Bad River Senior Citizen’s Center. This drive is especially important because it is being held in the summer. According to Anita Peterson, area blood drive coordinator, blood drive participation drops off considerably in the summer months. “It’s something we see every summer,” Peterson said. “People simply are much busier with outdoor fun and vacations than they are at other times of the year. Even though donors might have other things to do, patients in our area and throughout the nation continue to need blood. It would be great to see eligible donors give at least three times a year, especially once in the summer, to keep patients supplied with lifesaving blood.” The Tea Timers urge residents to be heroes and make time to save lives. Those who are not able to donate are encouraged to recruit other s in their place. Anyone interested in donating, or in coordinating a blood drive, may call 3428585 in Rapid City, 996-3688 in Mitchell or go online at www.bloodhero.com.

No free lunch ... by Del Bartels
We all have heard, well most of us have heard, actually I’m sure at least some of us have heard, okay I have heard ... or at least made up ... the idea that there is no free lunch. The word “free” is grossly over used, yet still grabs the eye, thus advertisements abuse it frequently. Sales gimmicks use phrases such as “Buy one, get one free,” “Free delivery,” “Free extended warranty,” “Free with purchase of an item of equal or greater value,” “Free for all customers,” and “Free prize in every box.” Individuals and companies use the word so freely (sorry) that it doesn’t really mean anything any more. If one person wins the lottery, that means a mathematically atrocious number of people lost. If a person down on their luck is given a meal, then some good samaritan paid for it. If the company takes a potential client out to lunch, then the current customers pay for it in higher costs for the goods or services. The only way something is free is to a specific someone, with it costing someone else. There is another saying – and yes I looked it up – that the best things in life are free. Of course, what is best in life depends on the person speaking. Then, something considered free still has conditions, prerequisites or has to be paid for in some manner later. A sunrise is free, if you have the health to see it, if you struggle out of bed early enough, if you cared to look and if you hold any value to sunrises. I don’t want some “free” things. The flimsy plastic prizes at kids carnivals take up drawer space until they are finally pitched. Bugs inviting themselves into your home could be considered free. The breeze is free, even if it does come from the nearest sewage lagoon. Some things are not free, but seem that way. Radio waves are available to anyone who has a radio. The right to travel down a public, notoll road requires no immediate charge. The right to say what is on your mind can be had by everyone, without putting cash on the counter. If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be provided for you ... though you will be charged. Citizens may register to vote, but being informed and opinionated is a cost in itself. Schools are so very far from being free, but all youth can go. Churches are free, as long as they can keep up expenses. Not going to church is free, but that can be hotly debated. Not being treated worse or better than anyone else by businesses or by the government is definitely worth something, but is free to all. Even having a government is worth something. I am not rich, but I have seen enough sunrises to consider myself wealthy. I am opinionated. I am prejudiced – I prefer rocky road ice cream and country western music. I like going to church, but which one varies. I like voting and thus having the right to complain. I can put up with paying taxes, but only if everyone else is paying them as well. I know life is not free. I especially know that life as I know it in this country is not free. Thank God for those who paid for me.

and how each level affects the profits on each animal. Gates said grasses in the range conditions varied due to the grazing intensity. The high intensity areas tend to buffalo grass and blue grama and other warm season grasses. The lower stock rate pastures tend toward western wheat grass and other cool season grasses. Focusing on the study between the years 1969 to 2002, the net income on range in excellent condition, income averaged $9.31 per acres, good condition at $11.86 and low-fair at $11.18. Gates said that the college has always promoted the excellent range conditions, but most producers utilize the good or low-fair, because they stock the area in high quantities which are more profitable to him. In those same groups the average daily weight gain for the groups reflected those animals on the excellent range condition pasture gained an average of 1.61 pounds per acre; good were at 1.69 and low-fair at 1.56. The “Long-Term Production and Profitability From Grazing Cattle in the Northern Mixed Grass Prairie” report of the study stated, “Over the 34-year period of the study, real profit ... steadily increased ... for the low-fair and good treatments while it remained basically level for the excellent treatment. It is difficult to speculate as to the cause of these differences, but it is important to note that the profitability of the low condition pastures, which had the heaviest stocking rate, did not decline over time, it actually improved. “In our 34-year study, rangeland managed to maintain either lowfair or good range condition was equally profitable. Profit for both steadily increased over time. Excellent condition rangeland was the least profitable to maintain and profit remained stable over time. These results are consistent with
generally observed rancher behavior concerning range condition decisions.” Range scientist Pat Johnson introduced a new study at the station involving native bird habitat. Johnson said the proactive study is designed to be a jump ahead of any possible bird threaten status and also to see if the use of livestock grazing can help with their habitat. Steers were placed in eight patches within the same pasture. Water is supplied in the center of the pasture so as not to be an issue. Two animals in each patch have been fitted with GPS units that record their location every 65 seconds. Personnel at the Cottonwood station monitor the height of the grasses, record found nesting sites and how they are in relation to grazing and weight gain on the steers. The study is still in its first month, but Johnson is excited about early data. Johnson said this preliminary study will be used to apply for grants so further research can be conducted. Olson discussed the high sulfate water trials that had been conducted at Cottonwood. Producers had contacted the college regarding livestock health issues which led the specialists to the problems of high sulfate concentrations in dams, especially during dry years. He stated no solution has yet been found for the problem. One thing that was found is that there seems to be a genetic disposition to the level the animals are affected by the sulfates. He noted that after drinking water with sulfates, the sulfates turn into hydrogen sulfide, a gas, in the rumen. The gas then affects brain tissue, creating polio-like symptoms and in some cases death. The change to hydrogen sulfide is caused by a bacteria, he said, so focusing on the bacteria may be an avenue. As of now there are no plans for further research regarding sulfate water.

SDSU Extension Re-organization As we progress into the first summer of the new SDSU Extension system, the Regional Extension Centers are becoming busier with telephone, e-mail and walk-in traffic. As the SDSU Extension Reorganization was unveiled in April, 2012, some of the criteria for the location of the Regional Extension Centers included geography of the state, and location of major trade centers. While there can be no perfect situation, the wisdom of locating the Regional Centers in communities identified as trade centers is becoming increasingly apparent. There are certainly people who don’t make frequent trips to the communities where the Extension Centers were chosen to be located, but at least in Winner, a number of people have stopped in the center while they were in town for another reason. This has provided them an opportunity to bring in crop samples, weeds or insects to identify, or simply to request information in person. If they weren’t planning a trip to Winner, or needed assistance on shorter notice, technology has served well, either by calling on the telephone, sending an e-mail, and sometimes including one or more digital photographs. On one recent occasion, I was in northern South Dakota, participating in a series of winter wheat tours and received a digital photograph on my cell phone of some wheat plants. I was able to identify the wheat disease affecting the plants, call the client within a short time and provided him with the information he needed. E-mail is also used extensively to receive requests for assistance, and to provide information, often involving digital photographs and the exchange of electronic documents. Not everyone in South Dakota is blessed with reliable cell phone service and high-speed Internet access, or even Internet access at all. We at SDSU Extension are always available via telephone, and may need to return phone calls, but strive to do so in a timely manner. We are also more than willing to send factsheets and/or letters for specific information by mail if needed. Not everyone in South Dakota is probably pleased with the re-organization of the Extension Service, particularly if they are located a long distance from one of the regional centers. The Extension Field Specialists do feel that they are able to concentrate more closely on their specialty area and better serve the people who come to them for information. If you would like information in the specialty areas provided at the Winner Regional Extension Center (specifically Plant Pathology, Human Nutrition, and soon, Beef Cow-Calf), stop in at 325 S Monroe St., or call 842-1267.

Courtesy photo Children from across Haakon County are ‘Wild About Cooperation’ after attending the annual Haakon County Farmers Union camp, Thursday, June 14, at Gittings Missile Inn, Philip. The United Nations declared 2012 as the International Year of Cooperatives, and this year’s camp celebrated the positive impact cooperatives have had on the economy of rural South Dakota and communities across the world. The kids participated in activities and games that taught them about cooperative business, rural communities and agriculture in a fun and safe setting. They participated in hands on team building activities, played cooperative tictac-toe to test their knowledge of cooperatives, and watched a puppet show telling the history of Farmers Union. “The positive impact cooperatives have had in rural South Dakota is dramatic,” said Marsha Sumpter, Haakon County education director. “Young people need to know what cooperation can do in business and in their own personal lives. The kids who attended camp have a greater understanding of teamwork and will take the skills they learned and apply them to their lives.” Campers participated in 4-H activities along with other interactive activities, games, and singing. Each child also created their own garden stones as a craft and each child also received a free T-shirt.

Loren and Rose Kiel had as guests their daughter, Rosanne Brown, and granddaughter, Deanna, and Deanna’s friend, Emma Veley, who arrived from Fairborn, Ohio, June 13. They departed June 25 to visit Brown and Pates relatives in the Fargo, N.D., area before journeying on home. Emma’s father, Duane Veley, joined Loren and Rose and their guests in a day spent in the Badlands and at Wall Drug Tuesday, June 19. Duane was Kiel’s guest for a day and two nights, pitching his tent in their backyard. Thursday, Loren accompanied their guest for a day-long trip to the Southern Black Hills and Mount Rushmore. Duane went his own way that evening, camping one night in the Black Hills before going on to Yellowstone National Park. Loren commented that the weather was great for both of those outings. Loren Kiel observed his 80th birthday, June 23. Besides their company, other guests at the Kiel home on Sunday in honor of his birthday were Phillis Thorson, Esther Knutson, Rich Smith, Jack and Arlyce Griesel, and Mary Eide. Loren remarked, “This is the most attention I have had for a long time. Oftentimes in the past I observed my birthday out in the hayfield with absolutely no fanfare.” June 23, Mary Eide went over to Loren and Rose Kiel’s to join others for Loren’s 80th birthday. Rosanne and girls, and of course Rose, who does the grilling at their house, fixed a delicious steak and there were two delicious salads, plus a fruit bowl, and baked sweet and white potatoes, homemade buns, and of course we must not forget Loren’s great ice cream that was served with a delicious double chocolate cake that was made by Rosanne. What a meal! We all had to retire to the living room to rest from the work of eating such a good meal. We also enjoyed music played by Rosanne, and at times Loren joined his daughter on the violin and trombone. Many oldtime hymns and patriotic songs were played along with a lot of Rosanne’s own compositions. Rosanne is a great musician and composes a lot of her own songs. The First Lutheran Church is treated to her music when she attends church there when she is home. Loren and Rose’s granddaughter, Deanna is also very talented. Rosanne said that she has been playing since she was big enough to sit on the piano stool. Deanna has been taught by her mother. Another granddaughter is also very musical and she teaches a group of students. In visiting with Rosanne she said she likes all kinds of music, some of we call modern she said is very good. Rosanne said that if you play every musical note perfect and don’t put feeling into it, it does not have the ability to appeal to you, and it is just cold notes. Later that evening after coming home, I took my granddaughter back over to hear Rosanne play her own compositions on “What Cats Say” and we also heard Deanna play some music that she hadn’t played earlier that day while I was there. The day was also spent showing pictures of old-time homesteads and talking about old-time homesteads. One of the pictures of special interest to me was of my brother, Rich’s mother, Roxy Smith, in front of her homestead shack. It was enlarged to a 12x16 size from a photo taken off a postcard and was in a beautiful frame that was made by Rich’s son-in-law, Ed Buchholz. I thought, “I know now where some of Rich and Gladys’ girls get their looks.”
Jack Griesel and Loren Kiel knew a lot about old settlers and homesteads. Loren had many pictures of many of those old places. The ladies were also doing a lot of reminiscing about the good old days. I don’t know how old Arylce Griesel is, but between her and myself, we were the youngest of the group of guests. I have known Phillis Thorson since she was a girl of about 12 years old, as her dad and my dad were in the potato business together near Custer. It was a fun and interesting day. Rich left early enough to go to Philip to have supper with Gladys and Esther wanted to stop over to her homeplace to visit her granddaughter, Carrie Buchholz, who lives there now. I am sure that Rosanne was glad to get back home as she is awaiting the arrival of a grandchild in about a month or so. Carla Eide, Taegan and Kiley, came from Gillette, Wyo., Friday evening and got caught in that terrible wind at Quinn, but made it safely home. Then Saturday, she prepared several hot dishes to take up to Christa’s to help her out after the arrival of her new baby, Aven.

trees and says, “Come and get some.” Ike Dale said, “Nice to see you. Nice warm weather, but we could use some moisture.” Chuck Kroetch said, “Everything is okay.” We have a special bond with the Kroetch family, because my brother, Richard drowned in their stock dam. It was a popular WPA (Works Progress Administration) dam and had good fishing. Richard Palmer and his father-in-law, Phil Doughty, drowned there. Their boat was nearby and Richard’s black hat was floating on the water. Fred Kroetch, Chuck’s dad, was the first one to see the empty boat. That was in 1959. Gary Stephenson wrote, “What a fun celebration in Philip. The chamber of commerce did good.” Boyd Stephenson said, “Fun to visit with family and friends.” Tom and Karen Husband, Rapid City, “It’s great to be back to see so many friends.” Sharon Coyle wrote, “Bob and Karen Coyle are here from Nebraska for the weekend.” Charlene Ramsey Kjerstad, Wall, said, “Hi, Shirley Parsons, who was working at the Bad River Senior Citizen’s Center.” Amy Hullinger, Murdo, Cory and Myra Rust, Okaton, Julie Brunskill Nelson, Box Elder, Marcy (Brunskill) and Steve Wolfe, Rochester, Minn., signed my book. Julie and Marcy are Obie Brunskill’s daughters. Pastor Al Brucklacher and wife Lenore, Philip, Kay Ainslie and Gayle Rush were helping serve food for “Friends of the Library.” Kay Kroetch wrote, “Thanks for coming to the breakfast.” Audrey Nieffer, who plants such a delightful garden that reaches out to the sidewalk at her house north of the post office wrote, “My garden is the joy of my life, and I am happy you and others enjoy looking at the results of the partnership that God and I have.” There is rhubarb, asparagus, okra, peppers, squash, and cukes. The common place for a garden in in the backyard, but the frontyard garden has brought many blessings as near friends admire it. Thelma Heltzel wrote, “Nice to see you, hope you have a good time seeing old friends.” (Thelma sends me birthday cards once or twice a year. Thanks, Thelma.) “You are inspirational, keep enjoying life.” This was from Gloria

and her two sons, Josh and Adam, Iowa City, Iowa, my son, David Hansen, Ft. Pierre, and my daughter, Vinnie Hansen, Santa Cruz, Calif., all met at Philip, my hometown, for Festival Days. We slept over at my old house at Hansen Court. Gloria Hansen, who rents the house, left it for us to use and we had all five bedrooms full, plus some slept in sleeping bags on the living room floor. Some had motorhomes and campers. We had a houseguest, an old family friend, Sandra Drew, Sioux Falls. (You remember the Clyde Drew family? Edith is living at a rest home in Tea.) Thank you all for being there. David Hansen brought a big iron fire pit and grilled steaks. Others brought potatoes for baking, corn on the cob, salads, and other picnic fare, for supper on June 15. It was grand. Thanks everyone for a great time. Saturday, we all got up early and went down to the Bad River Senior Citizen’s Center to the “Friends of the Library” breakfast, where we had the finest of eggy hot dish and homemade cinnamon rolls and other fixin’s. The best part was meeting people I used to know. Here is a partial list of people who signed my journal and what they wrote.

Sunday evening, Ralph and Cathy Fiedler met Eric and Sherry Hanson and kids in Rapid for supper in honor of Father's Day. The Hanson family had taken a drive through Custer State Park. George, Sandee and Roxie Gittings were in Pierre Monday where George kept a doctor's appointment. Monday, I was the Haakon County Prairie Transportation van driver for the day with a trip through Philip. I visited Dean and Mary Parsons before returning home. Tony Harty visited at the home of Shirley Hair and with his niece, Kathy Brown, Monday. Tuesday, Phyllis Word visited at our place in the morning. L.T. Works and Judy DeWitt, fulltime RVers, arrived for their usual summer visit in the afternoon and had just gotten set up when I received word about the death of our daughter, Sandra May. From there, our world took on a different life. Bill hurried home from Philip and we notified daughter Shelley Seager, who lives in Sutton, Neb. She left immediately to go to Harrisburg, to break the news to Sandra's daughter, Amanda and Adam Clafilin and Bill and I arrived in Mardison, at the home of her son, Chase May, and Carly. Tuesday evening, Ralph and Cathy Fiedler went to Spearfish, picked up Hannah Klumb and attended Elsie Hanson's softball game. Her brother, Loman, had a game at another field so didn't get to see him play, you can only be in one place at a time. Elsie's team won. After the game, Hannah went home with Grandma and Grandpa Fiedler. They stopped to see Lynette and she bought them supper in honor of Father's Day. Hannah stayed until Thursday afternoon.

In Madison, we had dinner with Chase and Carly. They had news of the ultrasound done that morning to share with us all. As we dealt with death of one hand, we were delighted with progress of new life yet to come. We all returned to our respective homes that evening. Thursday, Tony Harty took time in the morning to stop by and offer condolences to Bill and me. Then he was up to his neck in chickens the rest of the day.

Improvements were done Tuesday morning, June 19, at the Haakon County Young Women’s Kiddie Park in Philip. The last bit of concrete edging was poured by Gibson Concrete. Pea rock was brought in to complete the filling of the non-grass areas. Fill dirt was laid around the edging, and grass will be planted there. Trees were trimmed. Weeding was done throughout the park, including the entire tennis court area. Above, two volunteers painted the teeter-totters red, yellow and white. Along with local helpers Tami Ravellette, Brittney Drury and Mary Ravellette (shown above, left), volunteers from Pierre’s Farm Credit Services of America donated labor time for the community project.

It is Monday morning, and it is humid. Where is that humidity coming from I ask you? We are actually pretty dry, so I can’t think it is because of all that moisture we do not have. I’m thinking it is coming from down Florida way with all they have going on there. Harvest is getting closer. Custom combiners are moving into town. There is just something special about seeing those golden wheat fields waving in the breeze. Harvest is one of those times of the year when your eyes are ever watchful of the sky. One storm can wipe out a crop in a matter of minutes. Some folks have already had their crops hailed out. It gives a person a sick feeling to see all that hard work gone in a matter of a few minutes. Reminder: Mass at St. William Catholic Church in Midland for July 1 will be at 11:00 a.m. not at 7:30 p.m. as was in the bulletin. We wish to express our sincere sympathies to local ‘Betwixt Places News’ columnist Marsha Sumpter and her husband, Bill, on the death of their daughter, Sandra (Sumpter) May. Life’s journey with its valleys is never an easy time and when you lose a daughter or a son it is a most difficult time. A piece of your heart is missing and you are never quite the same. Memories of the good times help on that road to healing. We wish you and your family God’s healing, Marsha and Bill. Reminder: Vacation Bible School “Son Quest Rainforest” will be held at the Open Bible Church in Midland from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on July 30 and 31 and August 1, 2, and 3 and is for children from fourth through sixth grade. So if your kids fit in that category and would like to attend they are most welcome. If you have any questions you can call Pastor Andy and Jenn Blye at 843-2143. The Farmers Market held at the Midland City Park had a good turnout last Friday. There were a variety of booths at the market and folks enjoyed having a chance to buy something they saw and liked or something that looked tasty to eat. Plus, it’s just fun to have a chance to visit with folks. So come and checked it out next week. These people put a lot of work into their wares for sale. Let’s show them some Midland support. Reports are that the garden tour on Sunday, sponsored by Second Century, was an enjoyable time. It began with an elegant luncheon held at the Open Bible fellowship hall. From there people went off to check out the yards of Pat and Sophie Foley, Shad and Jenna Finn, Richard and Celia Doud, Joe and Bobbi Woitte and Shorty and Mickey Woitte. Each yard was unique in its own way and people thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon. I didn’t make it to the garden tour as Jerry and I had gone to Kadoka to the estate sale of the late Duane and Dottie Olson. Jerry and I had known Duane and Dottie and their family for a number of years, plus Jerry hauled bulk fuel to the Olson ranch. We visited with some of the family at the sale. Whenever there is an estate sale, it can be an emotional and draining time as memories of those items are sold and taken to the home of someone else. I visited with Bev (Sheeley) Johnson by phone. She and her late husband, Luther Johnson, lived in Denver, Colo., for many years. I called to see how the fires in Colorado were doing. She said in the mornings and evenings the haze from the smoke will kind of settle in around the Denver area and sometimes through the day. Bev said she sold the house she had lived in for 30 years and bought a condo. She and Luther lived in that house for many years and Bev continued to live there after his death. It was a house with five bedrooms and a big yard. At some point it gets to be too much what with yard care and snow to shovel. So she sold it and is enjoying her condo, but reported it has been a big change. The area where Bev lives is called Highlands Ranch, Colo. Her son, Eric, and his family live a short drive from her, which is nice. The office where Eric works is a five minute walk from Bev’s condo. Plus, Bev reported, she enjoys the fact that places such as the library, stores, two rec centers, etc. are within walking distance. Sounds perfect. No more mowing, no more shoveling and less house to clean. For those of you who would like to keep up on Alice (Donovan) Venner’s progress you can go to the website www.caringbridge.org. Alice’s daughter, Micaela, gave an update following the Donovan family reunion a while back. Though Alice was able to attend the family reunion she experienced a few rough days following. But, “Due to Alice’s diligence,” Micaela reported, “and husband Larry’s and daughter Kathy’s excellent care, Alice sounded stronger and joyful.” Alice was able to eat well and had even gained a few pounds. They ask that you keep Alice and Larry in your prayers. Alice and Larry have a strong faith and the love and support of family which is a huge help on this difficult journey. I also ask that you continue to keep Stetson Jones, son of Jeff and Jen Jones, in your prayers, as they were to leave for Cincinnati, Ohio, today for a checkup with Stetson’s doctor and to see what the next procedure is concerning his eye. Whether more treatment will help or whether they will have to take the eye. Stetson is four years old and he and his family have been through an awful lot. But, they too remain strong in their faith and

Murdo. Providing special musical tribute, M-O-T-H-E-R was Loren and Rose Kiel, Quinn. We want to welcome to our community, Leigh and Sarah Ferneval and children, Blaise and Ridge. They are living in the former Sylvia Snook home and Leigh is employed with Haakon County. Pat Snook reported the following: “A special event took place June 14, Flag Day, at the Capitol Rotunda in Pierre. It was the inaugural unveiling ceremony for the Trail of Governors sculptures. The first three bronzes are Arthur C. Mellette (sculptor John Lopez), Harlan J. Bushfield (sculptor James Maher), and Walter D. Miller (sculptors Lee Leuning and Sherri Treeby). All four living South Dakota governors were present, Dennis Daugaard, Michael Rounds, Frank Farrar, and Walter Miller. Very interesting biographies of each governor were read, the sculptors presented their vision of their work, and the bronzes were then unveiled by family members, except for Mellette, who was unveiled by Daugaard and Lopez. Mellette will be placed in front of the Hughes County Courthouse, Bushfield on the corner by Capital City Florists, and Miller, near the St. Charles Hotel. Work needs to be done yet on the sites before they can be installed. It is interesting to know that South Dakota is the first and only state to implement a project like this. It goes to show that we have a lot of talent and inspiration in our state. The Trail of Governors is the brainchild of Midland High School alumni Rick Jensen of Pierre, and LeRoy Foster of Ft. Pierre. The vision took life over a cup of coffee the two were having. Be sure to congratulate Rick for this outstanding accomplishment when you see him. The ceremony will be broadcast on Dakota Life, SDPB, at a later date. Rick will try to let us know when the time is decided. The website is www.TrailofGovernors.com. Pat Snook was an invited guest at the event, and also to the artists' and family reception following at the Governors' Mansion. Three sculptures will be done each year, if funding is secured. South Dakota has had 32 elected governors and 10 territorial governors.” Barb and Morrie Jones were in Belle Fourche Friday and Saturday to watch a couple rounds of the state high school rodeo. Brody Jones, their grandson was one of the contestants in the team roping. Thomas Doolittle and his partner, Austin O’Dea, were also contestants in the team roping event. There were a lot of people in Belle Fourche, so the motels were full. They stayed across the border in Aladdin, Wyo., Friday night. Barb reports Aladdin is a small town with a population of 15 people and that it is a nice and quiet stop on the road with an historic background. The following is a report on the Seidler family reunion: Several families of descendants of Lucille and Grover Seidler gathered at the Varmint Hunters building near Ft. Pierre for visiting and getting reacquainted on June 2. Jeff and Jackie Rheborg were the hosts. Mary Nemec was the one pushing us all to do this for a fun reason instead of the usual situation of there being a funeral. Bob Seidler is the only one of the Seidler siblings still living. Vivian Sichterman died last winter at age 90. Mary Oleson, Marge Calhoon, Betty Stalley and Ed Seidler all died too young of cancer many years ago. The four surviving descendants of Marge Calhoon, Maxine (Shorty) Jones, Dave (Jean) Calhoon, all of Midland, Mary (Larry) Nemec, Pierre, and Bob (and friend Ruth) Calhoon, Lohrville, Iowa, were there. Betty and Tom Stalley's descendants attending were Patty Stalley, T.R.'s widow, Riverton, Wyo., Bev McNeese, Belle Fourche, Jerry (Sharon) Stalley, Frazee, Minn., Connie (Steve) Leek, Slayton,

have the support and love of family. Joy (Saucerman) Jones reported that the wedding of her and Jerry’s son, Cody, and his fiancée, Audrey Nelson, was a very busy time. Cody and Audrey were married June 16, 2012, at Valentine, Neb. With the help of their family, the morning following the wedding, Jerry and Joy hosted a breakfast for family and friends. Their granddaughter, Cassidy Trapp, had made some cinnamon rolls for the breakfast. From the sounds of things, they were a big hit. Following the breakfast and some more visiting, everyone left for their respective homes or for a little tourist trip to the Black Hills. Two couples from Water Valley, Miss., the men folk having hunted on the Jones’ land for a number of years, attended the wedding. Their wives had never been to South Dakota before, so they were taking them to see Mt. Rushmore and the Black Hills. Other friends of Joy and Jerry, Ken and Kim Jones, Half Moon Bay, Calif., were also at the wedding. As were friends Ivan and Miriam Schilling, Gillette, Wyo. Joy reported there were many family and friends from the Midland area at the wedding. Back at home, Sunday evening, Jerry and Joy’s kids had a supper for them for their 50th wedding anniversary. Friends, Dick and Gene (Snook) Hudson, were also there. Congratulations, Joy and Jerry. Those 50th anniversaries seem to be popping up quite frequently in our age group. How can that be? It seems not that long ago we were in high school. Time does fly. Cassidy Trapp and a friend of hers, who also graduated from T.F. Riggs High School in Pierre this spring, are leaving for North Carolina tomorrow, Tuesday. The two gals will fly out from the Rapid City airport and will be gone for two weeks. The plane ticket for Cassidy was a graduation gift from the folks they are going to see and who live close to where Mayberry R.F.D.was filmed. Many of us remember the Andy Griffith show with his son, Opie, and Aunt Bea and of course we can’t forget Barney Fife. Though they didn’t have violence in their show, a person can’t help but remember Barney and his gun with one bullet. For all you Minnesota Twins fans, I learned an interesting story from a former classmate, Mary Lou (Foster) Wallner. Mary Lou and her husband, Jerry, live in Ramsey, Minn., and they have a son, Kale, and two grandsons, Brady and Brenden. Kale Wallner has been chosen to throw out the first pitch of the Minnesota Twins baseball game at the new Target Center, downtown Minneapolis, on June 30, 2012, at the 6:00 p.m. The game is between the Twins and the Kansas City Royals. Kale will have his two sons, Brady and Brenden, by his side. To give you a little run-down of how this came to be: Jerry’s dad, Kale’s grandfather, Fred Wallner, (deceased) was a former 1940s baseball catcher for the Minneapolis Millers baseball team. Fred Wallner’s #17 Minneapolis Millers uniform is being honored by the Minneapolis Twins Association and will be permanently displayed in a glass disclosure for viewing inside the new field in front of the Legends Club. As a special tribute to the Former Minneapolis Millers, the Minnesota Twins players will all be wearing Millers’ uniforms made for this special day. After the first pitch, the Wallner family will all be seated on the third floor executive quarters, located under the Budweiser sign, left field. Mary Lou will be putting together an article of her father-inlaw’s baseball history with pictures following the June 30 game. As Mary Lou shared this most interesting journey with me over the phone, I was amazed. That uniform top had been on display in Jerry and Mary Lou’s house for a number of years. One thing led to another and all at once it has turned into an amazing journey. Paul Harvey used to say, “And now, for the rest of the story.” That will come at a later date.
Kathleen Hand, Kennewick, Wash., is spending a month at the Hand ranch where she grew up, giving her a chance to visit her brothers, Dave and Tom Hand, and their families. Laura Hand flew to Kennewick and from there she and Kathleen made their trip by car to South Dakota. Kathleen and I have a bit of history, as she and I attended the Little Eagle School at one time. Good memories of those times. The Hands have had a lot going on at their place, as much of their wheat was totally hailed out in one of those hail storms. Later, there was a fire north of the home of Michael and Michelle Hand. It burned about an eighth of a mile of Bonnie Sivage’s tree rows before it was able to be put out. Bonnie had a lot of trees planted on her land and trees are something that take some years to grow. Thursday, June 7, Lisa, Blake and Stuart Hackerott came from Kansas to visit before Lisa’s mom’s, Ida Hunt, birthday celebration. Courtney (Hunt) McFarland came from Wyoming. Jan Tolton picked up granddaughter Jessica in Wall, who had been spending time with her mom’s relatives. Friday, June 8, Teresa Palmer came from Murdo, Roger and Peg Johnson, Pierre, Ron Hunt and Laura, California, Gordon and Cheryl Hunt, Jeff Hunt, Barry Hunt, all of Nevada, Shari Estep, Texas, Jordan Tolton, Aberdeen, and Jenna Tolton and Keenan, surprised everyone (after a cancelled flight) when Leesa Johnson, Colorado, met her plane in Rapid City. Saturday, June 9, was the big celebration for Ida Hunt’s 90th and Ted Hunt’s 70th birthdays. Other family members coming were Ted and Dena Hunt, Rapid City, Derek, Erin and Lauren, Ryan, Nikki, Madie, Gabby and Peyton and Erik, all of Colorado, Marcie (Hunt) Ricards and Randi Hunt and Easton Schwartz, Nevada, Chad Johnson, Pierre, Dave and Tiffany (Hunt) Ghering, Noah, Emma, Eli, Rapid City. Ellie Hackerott and Deidra came from Kansas after Deidra took her ACT tests. April Neuhauser brought Penny (Hunt) Schafer from Pierre. Terry from Watertown came and was a houseguest of his brother, Keith Hunt, for a couple of weeks. They all joined Roy and Carol Hunt, Jerry Hunt, Keith Hunt, Christine Niedan, Jan and Jan Tolton and Cam and Michelle Meinzer to complete Ida’s family. This is the first time family has been together for a family picture since 2002. About 180 people signed the guest book. Many other relatives came from near and far including Emma Root’s family, Darwin and Betty Haerer and their grandsons, Deacon and Camden, Wall, Sylvia Huber, Rapid City, Dan and Dorothy Root and Cliff and Marissa Root and Megan of Wyoming. and Sam Root, Midland. Till Mulcahy family, Jo Ann and Shelby Bork, Midland, and Jenny and Kylie Geuther, Pierre. Olga Meyers family, Jerry and Sonia Nemec, Midland. Clara Roseth family, Clark and Carmen Alleman, Sophie Foley, Duane and Lola Roseth and Julian and Coreen Roseth all of the Midland area. Esther Schanzenbach family, Ivan Schanzenbach, Midland. Pete Fosheim family, Tom and Nancy Russell, Black Hawk, Patsy Freeman, Philip, Nancy Schofield, Belvidere, Danielle Tople, Pierre, Jamie Dolezal and Travis and Jackie Schofield, Belvidere, June Fedderson, Midland, Dusti Palecek, Ft. Pierre, and Tena and Kash Slovek, Philip, and Carissa Doolittle, Midland. Anna Walker family, Dianne and Dave Selchert, Yankton, Bev Bordewyk, Parkston, Julie Carter, Black Hawk, Kathy Haarstad, Iroquois, Beth Carter, Bryant, and Lily Lund, Rapid City. Lawrence Hunt family, Gayle and Ralph Matz, Brookings, John and Arnis Knutson, Quinn. Everett Hunt family, Al and Grace Hunt, North Dakota, Lyle Hunt, Rapid City, Dick Deal, Caputa, Janet Waldron, Ft. Pierre, and Wayne Hunt,
Minn., Karmon Keppers, Pillager, Minn., Lanna Norton, Page, Ariz. Two of Vivian and George Sichtermans' sons able to attend were Bud (Sharon), Casper, Wyo., and Gary (Cheryl), Colorado Springs, Colo. Bob Seidler and daughter Athellan Westerman were there, and some of the cousins were able to go visit Dorothy at Maryhouse during their visit to the Pierre area. Other family attending the party were Don and Nancy Smith, Carly and Kimberley, and a friend, Jessica Mascallero, all of Bellevue, Neb., who also drove through the Badlands and toured Wall Drug, as Jessica had never been to a really rural area, and she enjoyed it a lot. Barry and Lexi Jones and Bryer Jones and Kacee McDaniel, Ross Jones and daughter Cassie, Rapid City, Jay and Tabatha Calhoon, Wall, Craig Anderson, Dea Fisher, Jersey Anderson, Nevada Norton, Casper, Wyo., Nacona Toth, Briley and Dawson, New Castle, Wyo., Neil Nemec, Pierre, and Colleen Stalley Moorman, Madalyn and Max, Riverton, Wyo. Friends coming to visit with the family were Sharon Engelhaupt, Midland, whose kids called Ed Seidler "grandpa" as Sharons' parents both died before her kids were born. Ed was a good friend of theirs, helping Sharon run her place after her parents' passing. Lane and Sonja Briggs, Lil Briggs, Don Foot, and Darwin Itule, from near Ft. Pierre. When the Stalleys worked for Hickmans, the Briggs and Stalley kids went to school together and were neighbors and friends. Shorty and Maxine Jones were among those attending the Cody and Audrey Jones wedding in Valentine, Neb., recently. Don and Nancy Smith and Carly also came from Bellevue, Neb., all staying overnight and getting in some extra visiting. It was a reminder of attending weddings of the three daughters of Patty and the late T.R. Stalley at Valentine over the past six years or so. Different churches, but the same great place for a reception, and even the same band. The Joneses toured along the Niobrara River east of Valentine on the trip back home, taking the river road, crossing the Berry Bridge south of Sparks, Neb., from the south side of the river road, then driving along the north side, much closer to the river, seeing only a few floating down the river in tubes that very windy day. Going up Hwy. 183 and turning east a little way into South Dakota to visit friend, Rose Paulson, on her ranch south of Colome was a treat. Rose’s son, Don, has built a new indoor roping arena, and they had to replace a shop which had burned, so it looked a little different than on previous visits many years ago. It was a great afternoon of catching up with a very 'young' 88-year-old friend. The whole trip showed the extremes of dry areas, starting a little south of the town of White River, on, with Valentine looking the worst we had ever seen during the growing season. Quite brown, with little promise of hay or crops. South of Colome was much better, and the Winner area looked good, too. Going on up toward Presho, it varied quite a bit, with areas looking pretty good, and others not so much. The entire area sure needs significant rain, except maybe for some wheat fields. As I close out my new’s column for this week, Randy Nemec and his crew are putting a new roof on our house. He’s had a number of roofs to be replaced this summer. I leave you with this quote, “Life is like a calendar; when a page is turned, it’s gone. And no matter what you do next week, no yesterdays will dawn.” Some food for thought. Go out and make it a good week.

ited around town making some deliveries where folks needed it. Don and Vi Moody have been staying close to home getting some haying done. The hay has been a bit short, but hopefully as they approach the alfalfa bottoms nearer to the creek they will find better pickings. Rain showers have been nice with showers occurring most every other day, dropping from a quarter to a half inch, so grass is staying green. Their new toy, work horse, a John Deere Gator, was delivered this week, along with a tractor. Most of the time, there is no way to meet life or death but head on, so that was what we did Thursday. Bill and I met with Pastor Kathy Chesney of the United Church in Philip and worked through details for memorial services for Sandra. We met with D.J. Rush and also addressed things that needed to be done. These words seem so fitting at this time “Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a battle.” Sandra battled hard and courageous a foe only she knew personally. Also arriving at our home from Brooklyn Park, Minn., were Ellen and Leroy Lutzke, making the long journey on their motorcycle. They went on to spend the night at the home of Lori Snellgrove, to return for services and visiting Saturday. George and Roxie Gittings and Daniel were in Rapid City Thursday for a dental appointment for George. Ralph and Cathy Fiedler met daughter Lynette Klumb in Whitewood Thursday afternoon, thus ending Hanna's visit. Friday visitors at our home were Dean and Mary Parsons, Philip, Ed and Wanda Artz, Humbolt, Wanda Swan, Kadoka, Dorothy and Digger Hansen, Philip, Tony Harty and Dale and Cindy O'Connell, Kadoka. We have a house with several bedrooms, that soon filled up with the arrival of Eric Seager, Chaciel, Aviana and Eli, Amanda and Adam Claflin, Harrisburg, Chase May and Carly, Madison. The motorhome was set up for Shelley Seager and Mike Rath, Sutton, Neb. Bonnie Moses rode up from Nebraska with Shelly and went on to Philip to spend time with her family. Judy DeWitt did an excellent job of providing some great cookies for those who visited and also entertained Aviana at her motorhome during the evening’s visit with Pastor Kathy, who came over for fellowship and to hear about Sandra. Saturday morning, Pastor Art visited at our home before services and everyone went to Philip. Zack Seager joined the group. Saturday, Kent and Nina Fairchild, Lemoore, Calif., and daughter Debra Moran, Hanford, Calif., arrived in time for the memorial services and joined the family in Kadoka for visiting and supper. Shelley took Debra to Philip and picked up Zack Seager in the evening. The activities under the tent in Kadoka and music enticed some of the family to venture down town and enjoy the activies. Don and Vi later drove over to Kadoka to attend the open house for the Save the Pearl ice cream social Saturday afternoon and had fun visiting with the local folks about Vi's grandparents, the Steve and Katie Rumseys, who were homesteaders in the Kadoka area. Vi's grandma, Katie, worked at times at the Pearl Cafe and also the Red Mill Cafe which was closer to the State Theater on the lower end of main. Paula Rock Vogelsang gave Don and Vi the grand tour upstairs and autographed a historical publication featuring the past history of this 1906 hotel which served the trade area in Kadoka when the railroad was at peak service to the influx of the western expansion in the Dakotas at that time. The ice cream and cakes were indeed among the highlights. Tony Harty was also among the folks at the ice cream social. George and Sandee Gittings, Don and Vi Moody and Tony Harty from this reporting area were among the many folks who attended the memorial service for Sandra Sumpter May at the United Church in Philip Saturday afternoon. Fellowship was shared over refreshments following the service. Jeannie Waara brought a couple of relatives over to the George Gittings home Friday evening and got a tour of their home. Tony Harty had a visitor of Kathy Brown Friday afternoon and Saturday morning and visited with Shirley Hair in the morning. Sherry Hanson called Saturday and invited her folks, Ralph and Cathy Fiedler, over for supper. The Hansons had gone fishing, so besides a fish fry, they enjoyed steak, potatoes and salad. Elsie caught the most fish and Loman caught the biggest one. After supper and the dishes were done, the Hansons followed Ralph and Cathy into Spearfish for ice cream cones to

end a perfect evening. Don Klumb, Tessa and Hannah, visited with Ralph and Cathy Fiedler in Sturgis Sunday afternoon so Don could help with some issues on Cathy's computer. He also got the TV and VCR in the spare bedroom set up so the grandkids can watch movies. They had an ice cream snack before returning home to Spearfish. Lynette Klumb and Caitlin were both working. George Gittings attended the auction Sunday afternoon for the Catholic church in Philip. Sunday, Don and Vi Moody attended the auction at the American Legion Hall for the Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Philip. This sale was also nicely attended and it was a fun fellowship afternoon for all, with a nice lunch available. There were lots of nice items with very active bidding. Vi said they had a heavy elm tree branch hanging off the front deck over a picnic table Sunday morning after a storm blew through. Sunday, Tony Harty attended church and had dinner out and stopped by our place in the evening to give me news. Sunday it was much like herding
cats around here. Family stumbled out of bed randomly gathering their things and wits about them. I grandly burned breakfast, (which most declined to want anyway) with the charred bacon remains beating even some of my other burnt offerings. We got our trailer unloaded and pickup hooked up
with many hands helping and the next project is the process of cleaning Sandra's apartment. Everyone returned to their respective homes. “Most of all let love guide your life.” Colossians 3:14 "Live that your memories will be a part of your happiness." Daysies

month. All bills have been posted that were approved on June 7th. All department expenses as of June 19 were in very acceptable percentage ranges for dollars spent. There are Funds that are very difficult to project expenditures on. Two of them are Jail Expenses, which had an original budget of $10,000 was supplemented by $4,000 and Mentally Ill Expenses with an original budget $7,500 was supplemented by $6,000. Both of these funds had to be supplemented at the last regular commissioners meeting on June 7th. Other funds that are unpredictable are court appointed attorney fees, support of the poor, court witness & jury fees. Auditor Freeman informed the commission that a paper dated August 26, 1930, had been found in the DOE’s Office concerning the proposals for the 60’ by 76’ 4story building which was the courthouse. The bids totaled to $95,664.00 back in 1930. EM101 For Commissioners was discussed. This is emergency training for elected officials and a meeting has been scheduled for Wednesday, June 27, 2012, at the North Haines VFD in Rapid City, SD, from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM. The amounts charged for liquor licenses were reviewed. These amount can be set for On-Premise Retail Sale Liquor License by the county commission not to exceed $1,500. Nothing was decided at this time. The rent for the fourth floor to the Town of Philip was increase from $60 to $500 a month for 2013. This includes the 3rd floor City Police space and the fourth floor City Finance space. City Finance Officer Monna Van Lint was present and stated that it was expected as it has been $60 for as long as she has been finance officer. No motion was made at this time. There was discussion on the purchase of a used trailer for a highway worker to be up in the northern part of the county. Auditor Freeman reported that anything that was done and was considered a permanent fixture to the county property could be taken from the Courthouse Building Fund. Things that could be charged against this fund, for example, would be the permanent replacement of water pipes in a shop building or replacing heaters within the courthouse. This fund could possibly be used to purchase a used trailer for placement of a highway worker in the northern end of the county. It would be a county owned “building” or trailer and also a permanent building. Auditor Freeman will check with Deene Dayton of Legislative Audit. No action taken at this time. The meeting was adjourned at 5:30 PM. The next Regular Commissioner’s Meeting will be on Tuesday, July 3rd, 2012, at 1:00 PM in the Commissioner’s room in the Courthouse.

Proceedings of Haakon County Commissioners
SPECIAL SESSION June 19, 2012 The Haakon County Commissioner’s Meeting was called to order at 10:00 AM on Tuesday, June 19, 2012. Those present at the meeting were Chairman Edward Briggs, Vice Chairman Steve Clements, Members Rita O’Connell, Nicholas Konst and Gary Snook. Also present were Auditor Pat Freeman, Deputy Auditor Carla Smith, Treasurer Patti Rhodes, Director of Equalization Toni Rhodes, Highway Superintendent Kenny Neville and City Finance Office Monna Van Lint. Revenues are the topic of the day. Printouts were reviewed from 2011 final revenues, 2012 actual revenues (as of 0531-12) and 2013 projected revenues for 2013, which needs to be done before budgets can be approved. These figures are projections or our best educated guess as to what the income will be by the end of 2013. The two major funds concerning revenue projections for 2011 were (101) General Fund at 96.7%. This means that in 2010 the projections made for 2011 revenues were only off by 3.3%. The (201) Highway Road & Bridge Fund was at 100.2%. There were many issues in this fund that were reviewed, such as the unexpected SWAP money at over two hundred thousand dollars and the increase of Motor Vehicle taxes on July 1 which were not projected previously because it was unknown at the time. Overall 2011 projections of revenues made in 2010 were very good. Then revenues that were made in 2011 for the 2012 year were reviewed with actual figures in as of 05-31-12. All income revenue has been recorded up to that date. June’s revenues cannot be posted until July, for obvious reasons – total revenues are not all in yet for the month of June because it isn’t over with yet. 2012 actual revenues posted for the (101) General Fund as of 05-31-12 is at 51.3% of the projected revenues, which is very good. The actual revenues posted for the (201) Highway Fund as of 05-31-12 is at 64.7%. This includes the first half of the opt out ($125,000) being transferred in. At this time, the (101) General Fund Balance Sheet was reviewed showing two “Assigned” Balances for Capital Accumulation of $193,497.00. This was set up by resolution and designated for a major purchase, such as a road grader. The second is “Assigned” Weed Restitution of $13,675.00 which originally came from the Department of Justice in the amount of $25,000.00 and designated for the Weed Control to use to purchase equipment they need to control noxious weeds in the county. The (201) Highway Road & Bridge Fund CASH Balance Sheets were reviewed showing “Restricted” dollars for Snow Removal ($100,000.00), Highway Road and Bridge Reserve ($24,353.46) and DOT/CTY SWAP Fund ($188,291.68) remaining. These funds can only be spent on certain activities concerning road and bridge. The meeting was adjourned at 12:15 PM for lunch. At 1:32 PM, the meeting was called to order. The next thing reviewed were the 2012 Expenditure Reports through 06-19-12. Payroll for June has not been done yet and will be posted at the end of the

This was also the first time she got to see Aven. Vicki and Mary Eide went along with Carla to see little Aven and all the rest of the boys. They sure are proud of their new little brother. After everyone took their turns holding Aven, we came home and did not stay for supper as it would have been no good to take food and then eat it all! Later that evening, Fitches called and the boys reported that the hot dish was very good and wanted to thank Carla for it. Carla and Taegan went home early Sunday as Taegan had to start summer school and Carla had to prepare some flower arrangements for a funeral. Kiley is staying for a week with her grandparents then she will go home so she can go to a basketball camp in Montana. Marvin Eide called Dan Oldenberg to check on his heifers. When Dan answered his phone, Marvin asked him what he was doing and Dan said, “Watching the hard rain.” Marvin said, “What did you say? The sky is clear and sunny here.” Well, Dan had answered his phone in Florida where he and Esther had gone to visit their daughter, Melanie, and family for a week or so. I was in Philip Wednesday and got a much needed haircut. It has been so hot, and I was glad to have it cut. Our sympathy goes out to the Sumpter family in the loss of their daughter, Sandra, this past week. I need to mow my lawn, but I’m afraid to do so as the fire index is so high that the least little spark could be a disaster. You have to be so careful about where you drive, as the old grass is so dry and the new green grass has not grown very much. There are lots of grasshoppers and the vehicle radiators and grills are full. Just a trip to town makes the windshield a mess and so hard to clean off. Some people are replanting crops as the hail destroyed some and the wind produced dust storms so that after it rained a little it just packed the ground and the crop couldn’t penetrate it. Some are planting feed crops and some are planting sunflowers, millet or other such crops. What a year! I have lived here since 1951 and have never seen a year like this one. The corn that Trevor Fitch planted here at our place looks good. The hot weather has taken all the surplus moisture we have had, so do hope we get a rain soon but it can leave the hail out. The wheat will be ready for harvest soon as it has ripened fast this past week. It’s been a long time through the happy yesterdays, and finds one’sself dreaming of those memories of bygone days. My heart is filled with gladness touched by nostalgia too. To travel back across the miles and find many changes that are new which tells you life goes on and new memories to collect as new generations make their way having their own memories as they grow older of bygone days.

Sympathy is extended to the family of Bill and Marsha Sumpter, Kadoka, in the loss of their daughter, Sandra. The Sumpters lived on the Fairchild place south of Billsburg for many years. The annual July 4th celebration will again be held this year at the Milesville Hall. That delicious roast beef prepared and cooked by Virgil and Carla Smith will be served beginning at 7:00 p.m. This will be followed by games for the kids and fireworks at dusk, weather permitting. Please bring a salad or dessert to share. Paperware, drinks and buns will also be provided. Carla Smith is asking for help in wrapping the beef roasts on the evening of July 3 at 6:30. This year, the job will be done at her house instead of the hall as in prior years. Milesville Rangers 4-H Club Milesville Rangers 4-H Club met June 18, 2012, at the Milesville Hall. This was a craft meeting with Vonda Hamill teaching the members about painting. Each member painted a stepping stone. Final plans were completed for the dairy promotion card party on June 23. Everyone enjoyed refreshments of homemade ice cream when the painting was completed. Sarah Parsons, Reporter Approximately 40 folks enjoyed the card party and ice cream social with pie Saturday night at the Milesville Hall. This was sponsored by the local 4-H club. The winner of the painted stepping stone donated by Vonda Hamill was Danielle Piroutek. Thanks, kids, for a fun night! Monday, Vincent and Pat Gebes stopped by the Leo Pattons for a visit. They were on their way home to Michigan after attending a Bucholz family reunion in the Black Hills. Arriving at the Leo Patton home Friday were son Bill, wife Michelle and children, Ally and Eric, Eagan, Minn., and friends, Steve, Ginger, Sydney and Cecel Kranz, St. Paul, Minn. They spent Saturday horse back riding, leaving Sunday morning for the Badlands, Black Hills and on to Wyoming. Over the weekend, local boys, Jade Berry and Nick Hamill, were in Ekalaka, Mont., for a football camp which was sponsored by several NFL players. Both Jade and Nick received a football for leadership and outstanding playing ability. Others from Philip High School who attended were Cassidy Schnabel, Quade Slovek, Casey Reder and Paul Guptill. Donnie and Bobette Schofield spent the weekend in the Black Hills enjoying the Bluegrass Festival held at a campground near Sturgis. They returned home Sunday, stopping in Wall to watch their grandaughter play ball. Jeff Schofield was out to do chores while his parents were gone. Bobette also celebrated her birthday last Friday. Mary Nelson and Theresa Deuchar attended the Midland Yard and Garden Tour and luncheon Sunday. Of special interest was Jenna and Shad Finn's yard, one of the featured yards and gardens in the tour. Local families who were at the state high school rodeo in Belle Fourche over the weekend were Donnie and Marcia Eymer and Mark, Judith and Bailey Radway. Jim Bob and Kayla Eymer went up Saturday for the rodeo. Competing were Tanner Radway and Gunner Hook in team roping and Brittany Eymer in barrel racing. Brittany made it to the short go (the top 15) and ended up in fifth place. Good job, Brittany! Donnie and Marcia stayed with Tim and Kim in Spearfish. Rachel Parsons and Ben Stangle were in Philip Tuesday and Wednesday attending Rangeland Days. Rachel got first place in the scouts division in range judging and Ben got fifth place. Ben received first place in display and his talk, going home with a belt buckle as Top Hand in the scouts division. Congratulations, kids! Visitors at Peggy Staben's last week were her brother, Jess Justice, Vancouver, Wash., and sister, Dorothy Pierce, and niece, Carol Craven, both of Price, Utah. Guests at noon Wednesday were Charles, Jeff and Terri Staben. Supper guests were Charles, Jeff, Leah and Zoe Staben and Robert and Sandra Harrowa, Rapid City. Thursday, Peggy and her company visited friends in Pierre. Joy Elshere accompanied Tim and Judy to Rapid City Monday where they celebrated Joy's birthday. Joining them for supper were Shawn and Thamy Elshere and Casey Elshere. Virgil and Carla Smith and Donnie and Bobette Schofield attended a family gathering Saturday at Canyon Lake Park in Rapid City. Jim and Lana Elshere and Greg and Kathy Arthur enjoyed supper out in Philip Saturday evening. They were celebrating their June anniversaries. Dustin, Andi, Brooklyn and Hudson Rische, Redfield, spent the weekend with Boyd and Kara Parsons. They moved last week from Rochester, Minn., to Redfield where Andi will start her new position as a nurse practioner, July 2. Justin and Lacy Gebes, Lincoln, Neb., spent Thursday night with Mike and Linda Gebes. They left Friday for the Black Hills and to visit with Lacy's parents in Keystone. Visiting with Chad and Kathy Hanrahan for the weekend were her parents, brother, and aunt, all of the Gregory area. They helped work on the new house Chad and Kathy are building. Linda Smith was in Kadoka several days last week. Monday, she attended an EMT meeting. She was there Friday evening taking tickets for the dance sponsored by the ambulance crew. She and sister, Gay Tollefson, attended the Belvidere all-school reunion Saturday at the home of Lennie and Ruby Sanftner in Kadoka. Weekend visitors at Lee and Debbie Neville's were son Eric Neville and Wayne and Lynn Peterson and daughters, Christrina and Jessica, all of Rapid City. Attending camp last week at Victory Center Bible Camp near Ft. Pierre were Kelton Quinn, Autumn Parsons, and Sarah Parsons. Sunday, the Earl Parsons family drove to Highmore for a McDonnell reunion at Jodi's parents home, Mike and Betty McDonnell. Sam Stangle played baseball in Pierre, Wednesday. His brother, Ben, spent the weekend with his friend, Jaclynn Knutson, and her family in the Black Hills. Rachel Parsons' friend, Jane Poss spent Thursday afternoon and Friday at the home of Earl, Jodi, Rachel and Sarah. Last week on Tuesday night and Wednesday the area received .40” of rain. These rains we've been getting are helping the crops hang on. There will be no or very little hay put up this year and the grass is very short. Combining will be starting soon. We are so thankful that right on our corner of the Milesville flat we haven't had hail like so many places.
Greetings from humid, windy, going-to-be-hot northeast Haakon County! It is a little difficult to get settled down to writing the news this morning. We are expecting a temperature of 104˚ here today, with high humidity and wind – yuck! So I've been outside getting some of the tasks done before the weather turns really ugly. It is probably going to feel like Memphis or New Orleans weather before the day is out. I hope everyone stays hydrated and safe – this type of weather is no joke. First of all, my sympathy to fellow correspondent, Marsha Sumpter, and her husband, Bill, on the recent loss of their daughter, Sandra. My thoughts and prayers are with them and their family. Duane and Lola Roseth have stayed close to home this past week. Monday, Lola was in Rapid City keeping appointments. Julian and Coreen Roseth got to practice their grandma and grandpa skills this week. Their daughter, Kristin's children spent Monday through Thursday with Julian and Coreen. Sunday, Julian and Coreen took a nice, leisurely drive through the countryside, ending up at Wall for lunch. Coreen said it was nice to see areas of the country that are off the beaten track. After they returned to the ranch Sunday afternoon, they did some more babysitting. Billy and Arlyne Markwed's daughter, Cindy Bresee, came to the ranch Friday. Saturday, Cindy, Billy and Arlyne traveled to Dell Rapids to attend a high school graduation reception for their great-nephew. He is the son of Scott Jones, and grandson of Jim and Alice Jo Jones. He graduated from high school in Wisconsin, but a reception was held in Dell Rapids so the relatives could attend. Scott and Tim Jones and families attended, as did several other relatives. Cindy's husband, Bruce Bresee, was able to join the group also, since he was in Sioux Falls on other business. Sunday, Billy and Arlyne helped with an auction in Kadoka. Dick and Gene Hudson were in Pierre Thursday to watch their grandson, Avery, play baseball. He plays with the Legion team from Philip. It was a doubleheader, so they got to see a lot of action. Sunday, Dick and Gene joined the Jerry and Joy Jones' family for supper in honor of Jerry and Joy's 50th wedding anniversary. Congratulations to them! Other than that, Dick has been doing field work and Gene has been watering flowers. Jon and Connie Johnson and boys spent Friday through Sunday in Minnesota, attending a wedding and visiting with friends and relatives. Nels and Dorothy Paulson were in Philip on business last Monday, then they went to Pierre Tuesday to see the doctor about Nels' sore shoulder. It sounds like Nels has a torn rotator cuff, and hopefully the shot that the doctor gave him will help. If not, he'll probably be having surgery later. (Some people will do anything to get out of doing dishes!) Wednesday, Nels and Dorothy took a critter to the butcher plant in Philip. Sunday, Dorothy served lunch at church. Bill and Polly Bruce have had a quieter week at their place also. Their son, David, spent Tuesday through Saturday helping with projects at the place. He fixed the window screens that were damaged by the recent hail -– while he was fixing them, Polly took the opportunity to get her windows all shined up. The guys have been busy with haying and working cattle. Last Monday, Vince's baler caught on fire because of a bad bearing. Thank goodness the damage was minimal. Max and Joyce Jones were in Onida last Thursday for an East-

ern Star meeting. Other than that, they have stayed close to home. Their son and daughter-inlaw, Todd and Darcy, and their children, Luke and Mattie, were on vacation to Yellowstone, so Max and Joyce were in charge of taking care of the grand-dog. Joyce said Max sprayed for flies and grasshoppers around the place, and it has really helped. Frank and Shirley Halligan celebrated their wedding anniversary last Friday by going out to dinner. Happy anniversary, you two! Their daughter, Maggie ,is home for a visit from her residence in Texas. Ron and Helen Beckwith spent some time fishing at Foster Bay over the weekend, coming home with some delicious walleye. Helen visited at Marge Briggs' last week also. The weekend of June 16, Ron and Helen were in Brookings to help with her father's auction. He has moved from his home, so he was getting rid of his belongings. While there, they learned of the untimely death of their nephew. He was a 30 year old banker in Minneapolis, and his death was very unexpected. My sympathy to the family. Ron and Helen, along with daughters, Rose Briggs and Cheryl Ulmen, traveled to Luverne, Minn., last Wednesday to attend funeral services for their nephew/ cousin. Helen said they lost windows during the hail storm – one of the basement windows has a hole big enough for a cat to go through – so they are in the process of getting the windows fixed. Their garden had damage, of course, but some of the plants are recovering and some of the crop was replanted. I didn't get to talk with Ruth Neuhauser this week, but I know she had a visit from her grandson, Kelly Boger, and family last Friday. The Bogers live in Arkansas, but they had been to a family wedding in Washington, D.C., then traveled to Minneapolis to get a truck and drive it to Williston, N.D., for his parents, Connie and Bunky Boger. They came to South Dakota Wednesday evening. After having lunch with Grandma Ruth, they were headed to visit a friend in Iowa on their way back to Arkansas. Steve McDaniel spent five days fishing in Canada recently, and it sounds like he thoroughly enjoyed it. Steve and Theresa's son, Tucker, competed in the team roping event at rodeos in Clear Lake and Wing, N.D., last weekend. Marge Briggs said her garden is looking pretty good, considering the recent hail. Mother Nature is amazing! Nancy Neuhauser and her daughter, Julie, spent Tuesday through Saturday at the family cabin in the Black Hills. While there, they met with the Forest Service and had an electrician do some work. Congratulations to Nancy's grandson, Lee Severtson, who has qualified for the National High School Rodeo. The rodeo will be held next month in Rock Springs, Wyo. Lee is the son of Nancy's daughter, Kathy. Kevin Neuhauser enjoyed the visit from his nephew, Kelly Boger, and family last week. Saturday, Kevin and Mary Neuhauser and their daughter, Sarah, were in Chamberlain to attend a surprise 60th birthday party for Mary's sister, Doris Juhnke. Brianna Neuhauser played in a softball tournament in Pierre Saturday. Sunday, Mary, Brianna and Sarah Neuhauser attended a Wernsman family reunion in Pierre – Wernsman was Mary's mother's maiden name. (Just try saying that three times fast!) Sarah returned to her home in Spearfish later Sunday. Mary Briggs attended her granddaughter, Cattibrie Riggle's, softball game in Pierre Wednesday. Granddaughter Kinsey Riggle came to the ranch with Mary following the ball game. Thursday, Lee, Mary, Cattibrie and Kinsey were in Sioux Falls for an appointment. Sunday, Mary met her daughter, Rea Riggle, at Hayes to pick up Kinsey and bring her to the ranch. Kinsey will be staying with Lee and Mary this week while Rea attends meetings in Atlanta. Mary's sister, Sally, is still in South Dakota, staying with her daughter-in-law, Barbara Stout, in Pierre. Sally will be spending some time at the Briggs' ranch prior to returning to Texas Thursday. It has been another busy week here at the ranch. Randy and I traveled to Kadoka Thursday afternoon to help some friends prepare for an upcoming sale. We also got to spend some time with my mother, Letoy Brown. After we returned home Thursday evening, Kelly and Erin Boger and children, Kelsey and Tate, came to visit for a couple of hours. It is always so good to see them! Friday, company arrived from California. Our daughter, Jennifer, became close friends with the DeJong family during the years she taught in California, and the DeJongs have visited at the ranch several times over the years. It has been fun to watch their family grow – and grow it has! The boys are all over six feet tall now, and Clayton and Bonnie have added a beautiful daughter, Leilani, to their special family. Their son, Tyler, is entering his third year of medical school, Blake will be a college senior in the fall, and son, Chase, is a baseball player who just graduated from high school and was recently drafted by the Toronto Blue Jays. Also joining the group were girlfriends, Karlie and Stacey, who were a joy to be around. Our daughter, Jennifer, and her husband, Ross Tschetter, were here for the weekend also, visiting with their friends and helping entertain. With such a busy family, the DeJongs can't be sure when they'll be able to schedule another family vacation, but we are so glad that they chose to spend part of this vacation with us. They are a fantastic group! (And they laugh at all of Randy's jokes!) It was so refreshing to see the ranch through their eyes – sometimes, when you see something every day, you forget to appreciate just how beautiful and special this place is! After a weekend of four-wheeling, Four-Corners baseball, fishing and kayaking on the Missouri River, in addition to a lot of visiting, the DeJongs and Tschetters left Monday morning, and Randy and crew headed to the wheat field to do some harvesting. It is a little difficult to get too excited about harvesting wheat that has so much hail damage, but it has to be done. Fortunately, some of the corn has been recovering from the hail damage – now, we just have to hope that it doesn't run out of moisture during this hot, dry spell. Son Scott Neuhauser arrived Tuesday morning to help with the wheat harvest. Today, I think I will probably be most grateful for air conditioning. It is going to be a scorcher! My mind always goes to our ancestors who had to deal with these difficult conditions without our modern conveniences. I saw a quote on a social media site that seems especially fitting today also – it said "I was going to complain about the heat today, but then I realized – it isn't 120˚, I'm not 5,700 miles from home, I'm not dressed in full uniform, I'm not carrying 70+ pounds of gear, and there is little chance of me driving over a bomb today. THANKS TO ALL WHO SERVE!" I hope everyone is working smart during this hot, humid weather. Stay safe, and make this a wonderful week!
