Bids for the three surplused
motor graders were opened at the
May 7 Haakon County Board of
Commissioners meeting.
A total of four bids were received
for the 2004 Caterpillar H grader.
Machinery Maintenance, Parsons,
Kan., had the high bid of $103,600.
Other bidders were Dixie Surplus,
Lafayette, La. with $73,368, Anas
Mohammed, Woodbridge, Va.,
$85,000 and Butler Machinery
Company, Rapid City, $97,000. The
board approved the bid from Ma-
chinery Maintenance.
The two 2009 Caterpillar M
graders had just two bidders. But-
ler Machinery was awarded the
bids with their $163,000 offer for
each machine. Dixie Surplus bid
$148,758 and $150,638 individu-
ally on the two graders.
Alex Kulesza, from Butler Ma-
chinery, noted that the bid on the
older machine was higher than an-
ticipated, but lower on the newer
models. When the motors were put
up for bid they were expected to
bring between $180,000 and
$185,000 on the 2009 graders and
about $95,000 on the older grader.
Commissioner Ed Briggs noted it
was not the best case scenario but
it wasn’t too bad. Highway Super-
intendent Kenny Neville said he
had concerns as he watched the
market drop on the 2009s after
Haakon County put them up for
bids.
Kulesza noted he will finalize the
payments for the new machines
based on the amounts brought in
by the surplused machines. The
board discussed the payment op-
tions of four year and five year
plans. Projected monthly payments
on the three new machines, based
on a five year plan, are expected to
be just a few thousand more than
they had been paying on the two
2009 graders.
A bid opening for concrete cul-
verts and bridge decking was also
held. Cretex Concrete Products,
Rapid City, was the sole bidder.
The board approved their bid sub-
mission.
In other business the board and
Neville discussed installation of
culverts on various county roads
and the pulling of shoulders on
roads in the Milesville area.
Zach Thomsen, South Dakota
Game Fish and Parks officer asked
for information regarding a possi-
ble petition for closure of a road in
northeastern Haakon County. He
stated that GF&P uses the road as
well.
Meeting minutes from the April
2 and 16 commission meetings and
the board of equalization meeting
of April 16 were approved. The
equalization minutes will be
amended to note that the meeting
had been rescheduled from April 9
to April 16 due to weather condi-
tions.
The commission met with de-
partment officials to discuss the
policy handbook’s section on hiring.
While the board may sit in on in-
terviews they do not have a say in
who an elected official hires. This
is according to South Dakota codi-
fied law.
The board approved contracts for
the County Rangeland Fire Protec-
tion Agreement and for the
Women, Infants and Children pro-
gram. The veterans service officer
and sheriff’s office reports were re-
viewed.
The board approved a raffle re-
quest for Midland’s Slam Dunkers
Relay for Life team, to surplus two
library computers, and the previ-
ous month’s warrants.
The commission then discussed a
support of the poor handbook. Pre-
viously, Auditor Patricia Freeman
had given the board three samples
to review. The board picked one
they liked the best and requested
that State’s Attorney Gay Tollefson
review it to make sure everything
follows state codified law.
Commissioners open motor grader bids
High school graduation
by Del Bartels
The latest meetings concerning a
proposed walk/bike trail near and
in Philip are showing progress,
particularly in the long process of
acquiring any grants.
Representatives of the National
Parks Service’s Rivers, Trails and
Conservation Assistance Program
have offered their expertise in ap-
plying for grants for similar trails.
Trisha Larson is one of the main
Philip contacts for the idea. The
latest update with the National
Park Service was Wednesday, May
8, at the Philip Ambulance Service
building.
Kenny Points, an intern in the
NPS’s RTCA program, summed up
various reports on the meeting.
The phase was unveiled for the
proposed area around the fair-
grounds. Phase one will include a
trail head that will offer a parking
area for the trail. Justin Otsea, a
planner with the Central South
Dakota Enhancement District,
gave a presentation on the grant
application process. Phase one was
well received and the proposed list
for later phases also created excite-
ment. Also, $20,000 has been
pledged towards the grant/match
by the Philip Chamber of Com-
merce and Economic Development.
Clayton and Charlene Kjerstad do-
nated land for the right of way
around the Philip sign on the west
side of Philip. The city of Philip has
promised labor and equipment/ma-
chinery to the project, which will
contribute towards a match for the
grant.
For grant application reasons,
the city of Philip is the entity offi-
cially overseeing the paperwork,
though other groups and individu-
als are adding their contributions.
The trail proposal does not stop at
just phase one, but includes three
future phases for an encompassing
trail.
If phase one becomes a reality, it
will be a blacktop or concrete path
circling the triangle of land where
the western Welcome to Philip sign
is and the roping arena, swimming
pool and fairground. Phase two of
the trail would connect the first
loop to the school by way of the con-
crete steps south of the elementary
playground. If that happens, a
third phase would be a wilderness
path south of town along the Bad
River. A fourth path would be an
angled cross country route to Lake
Waggoner.
One of the hoped for grants
comes from the South Dakota De-
partment of Transportation. Nancy
Surprenant, from that department,
coordinates a transportation alter-
natives program, a bicycle and
pedestrian program and a scenic
byways program. She and other of-
ficials were in Philip early Monday,
May 13, for a “walk and talk”
overview of the proposed project.
Surprenant headed a group that
included representation for the
Local Government Assistance Pro-
gram and the Federal Highway Ad-
ministration. Others interested in
the tour were the engineer who will
prepare the cost estimates, the
city’s public works staff, project
committee members, other city
staff and officials, the local plan-
ning district representative and
others.
We have some time on the sched-
ule to discuss the application
process, so we are looking for input
on things that need to be clarified
in the application or questions you
may have that are not answered in
the program summary. We will in-
corporate these clarifications into
the final documents, stated Sur-
prenant.
The department of transporta-
tion offered two suggestions as im-
provements to phase one. Some of
the circling route can have short-
cuts across it for people who do not
want to travel the entire length or
to get to a specific destination
quicker. Also, the originally
planned width of the path should
be widened from eight feet to 10
feet.
It seemed that plans and prepa-
rations, particularly that more
than only one phase were being
looked at, expressed to grant-offer-
ing agencies that Philip is commit-
ted and earnest in its applications.
Even if everything falls together
well, no work will take place until
Philip’s share of the construction
can be budgeted and other funds
raised. Construction will not take
place anytime this year.
Philip trails project headway

The Philip Volunteer Fire De-
partment received a $5,000 grant
from the Independent Insurance
Agents of South Dakota.
The amount covers all but ap-
proximately $50 for 20 new pagers
that the department already has in
use. “It was very good timing, be-
cause our pagers were dying,” said
firefighter Marty Gartner.
“Hope the pagers work out for
you guys,” said Jerry Diamond,
Pierre, executive vice president of
Independent Insurance Agents of
South Dakota. “Mary (Burnett) and
Joe (Gittings) turned in your name
and must have done quite a job of
explaining why you needed these
pagers. They worked hard to make
sure you got this grant.”
Gittings, manager of First na-
tional Agency in Philip, explained
the quality of the fire department.
Twenty-four and a half years ago
Philip Volunteer Fire Department
was a class eight, now is a six. The
lower the number the better. “We
appreciate the efforts you do in ed-
ucation, training and equipment,”
said Gittings.
Burnett, an agent with First Na-
tional Agency, continued, “I don’t
think people realize what you do to
lower their homeowner’s insur-
ance. I think if they did, they would
appreciate you a lot more.”
Carolyn Hofer, Pierre, another
agent representing Independent
Insurance Agents of South Dakota,
added, “What better way to spend
our members’ contributions then
give it back to the communities. We
really do appreciate all your volun-
teer time and your putting your
lives on the line. We hope we can
do more for you in the future,
through education or whatever.”

The fifth installment of nine of
the Badlands/Bad River Region’s
Stronger Economies Together ini-
tiative was held Tuesday, May 7, in
Philip at the Bad River Senior Cit-
izen’s Center.
“This is a very important session
because we learned about economic
development data both in South
Dakota and in our region,” said
Kari O’Neill, community develop-
ment field specialist. “That should
help us as we go forth to write a re-
gional development plan.”
The session included members of
the Philip, Kadoka and Wall areas.
During the meeting, economic data
regarding industries, jobs and em-
ployment in this region was ex-
plained.
One of the two quest speakers
was Bernie Moran, who heads the
South Dakota Labor Market Infor-
mation Center in Aberdeen. She fo-
cused on the employment aspects –
current jobs, potential jobs, charac-
teristics of the regional labor force,
as well as projections and opportu-
nities.
Moran promoted that towns and
counties be “shovel ready” for in-
quiring industries, and promote
that. Companies are wanting the
local area to have all the informa-
tion available – whether there is a
green field site, or a site already set
for all utilities and zoning, or a
building ready to go.
“Who’s the easiest person to sell
on your community? The person
who best knows your community,
whether they live there or else-
where,” said Moran. This and other
information should be on a crisp
website, with an email contact that
is checked daily. “Have a website
with current information, or you
don’t exist. You need to do the work
for the looking companies; inven-
tory of available buildings and
p r o p e r t i e s . ”
Moran promoted
“ready to work”
and “ready to
partner” web-
sites for commu-
nities hoping to
draw businesses.
The other
guest speaker
was Mary Cer-
ney, a longtime
research analyst
for the Gover-
nor’s Office of
Economic Devel-
opment. She pre-
sented informa-
tion about com-
panies showing
interest in South
Dakota, and how
that information
is disseminated. She talked about
workforce development grants that
provide skills to potential employ-
ees. She also talked about target
industries and supporting indus-
tries that might fit western South
Dakota and possible retention and
expansion efforts.
Cerney echoed that a community
or region must make information
available to outside companies, yet
keep local businesses happy with
staying here. Information used by
her office depends on surveys and
other sources. An ag community,
with people not wanting to talk to
survey people, could appear not so
ag based when rendered on paper.
The community must have zon-
ing and a plan to get the property
ready. It must have mitigated the
risks; no surprizes for incoming
businesses. Cerney talked about
Governor’s Office of Economic De-
velopment’s workforce develop-
ment grants that provide skills to
potential employees, and about a
community’s retention and expan-
sion efforts.
After the meeting’s attendees
worked in smaller groups, two
main prospects came to the front –
value added agriculture and
tourism. SET has been meeting
since January. The purpose is to
develop a regional economic devel-
opment organization and plan. In
module six, we will be able to drill
down to what we can actually do in
our region with these two indus-
tries, said O’Neill. The goals must
be measurable. Details will be
made on the goals of the specific
economic plan, on how to get it
done, when to get it done, and by
whom.
Module six will be held in Wall,
Tuesday, June 11.

Lookin’ Around by Syd Iwan
There are a whole lot of things in
life you simply do not need. You
might think you do, but you really
don’t. What’s more, as you get
older, more things prove them-
selves to be items you can happily
live without. Take motorboats, for
example. At the moment, I have no
need for one whatsoever.
This, however, was not always
the case. When I was stationed at
Mayport, Florida in the Navy some
years ago, I was pretty sure I badly
needed a motorboat. It seemed just
the thing. As a result, I scoured the
boat yards until I came across a
small used one that I could afford.
It had a used motor as well, but it
was strong enough to pull a water
skier if I wanted to do that. Natu-
rally, I had to buy a boat trailer as
well, but that was no big deal.
Well, for a time, running up and
down the intercoastal waterway
was fairly enjoyable. Sure, it took
some doing to get the awkward old
thing into the water and revved up,
but then you could skim across the
water quite nicely. I recall one fine
Saturday when a fellow officer
from the ship and I cruised the 25
to 30 miles from Mayport down to
St. Augustine and rather enjoyed
poking around that old city before
making the journey back. We tied
up at a pier, ate at a sidewalk café,
strolled around here and there,
and played tourist somewhat. It
was fun. The one thing I didn’t
enjoy about boating was constantly
having to wipe salt water off my
glasses since that is sticky stuff
and hard to remove. Flying over
the water is simply going to kick
up sea spray and some will land on
your lenses.
After a time, though, hauling the
boat to water, getting it in and out,
and messing with it lost some of its
charm. It got to be a little more like
work than pleasure. What really
put the damper on it was when our
ship was scheduled to go on a
shakedown cruise to Guantanamo
Bay, Cuba. Back in Florida, the
captain of our ship had one day
wanted to take most of us officers
for a cruise on his official Navy
runabout that was always carried
on the ship. It wasn’t quite big
enough for everyone so he asked
me to take my boat as well. That
was fine. We had a nice afternoon
and picnic. Then, when we were
headed to Cuba, he, for some odd
reason, wanted me to take my boat
along on the ship down there. I
suspect this was strictly against
Navy regulations to take a private
boat along, but one doesn’t argue
with the captain. I somehow man-
aged to get a crane to load my little
boat, and the boatswains stored it
in a hanger on deck.
In Cuba, of course, we had to un-
load it right away so it wouldn’t get
in the way (or probably be noticed
by officers that were senior to my
captain.) In that tropical water, as
you can imagine, it grew barnacles
practically overnight because there
was no place to store it on land. It
had to be kept afloat. We did use it
once or twice since there was pre-
cious little to do on that tiny heav-
ily-fortified base, but mostly it just
sat there for six weeks or so. At the
end of that time, I was thoroughly
tired of the whole business. I didn’t
want to bother finding a crane
again at both ends so I was quite
pleased when an officer stationed
permanently in Cuba offered to
buy the sucker. An agreement was
reached in jig time. He could deal
with the barnacles, the sea spray
on his glasses, and all the rest. I
was done.
At the same time that I had the
boat, I also had a small motorcycle
(Sears brand) and a little pull-type
travel trailer (Swinger brand.) I
enjoyed those too for a time, but
guess what. I don’t need them any-
more either although the motorcy-
cle still sits in the garage. It hasn’t
been used for quite a number of
years, and I don’t even know if it
could be talked into running again.
At this point, I’m not much inter-
ested in finding out.
So, there you have several things
I don’t really need in my life right
now. There are quite a few others.
I do, of course, need several com-
puters and a few pianos (don’t ask
how many I have of each of those.)
It is also nice to have a reliable
pickup and maybe a small four-
wheeler. There are more things I
like to have around as well, but,
with many others, “Been there.
Done that. Don’t need them any-
more.” Experience is a good
teacher. Uncluttered simplicity
has quite a bit going for it.

The Philip chapter of AARP and
Retired Teachers Association aired
the DVD “Building a Dream” about
Guy Paulson building a replica of a
stavekirk in Moorhead, Minn.
Attendees of the April 29 meet-
ing voted to donate the DVD to the
Haakon County Public Library so
others can learn of the woodcarving
skills of Paulson, a Philip High
School graduate. The full scale re-
production is of the Hopperstad
Stavkirke, a 12th century wooden
church in Norway. Adjusting for
modern building codes, yet keeping
the intricacy of the extreme details,
Paulson was the main artisan,
spending over five years of his life
fulfilling his woodcarving passion.
The AARP/RTA attendees then
discussed the proposed construc-
tion of a cemetery lot identification
building. John Heltzel, president of
the Mason’s Cemetery Committee,
has agreed to lead volunteer labor-
ers in putting up the three-walled,
block structure. It will be erected
just inside and to the right of the
cemetery entrance. Materials will
match the esthetics of the entrance
gateway. The walls will open wider
toward the road for easier visual
access by visitors. A large print
identification map for cemetery
plots will be displayed under its
roof. Mike West said that it will be
nice for people from out of town,
and for all of the local people as
well.
The project was voted on and
passed. The local AARP/RTA is
now striving to raise funds for the
project. “I think we have the
money, but it’s still in our pockets,”
said Marcia West. For more infor-
mation, contact Donna Newman,
local AARP treasurer.
A second “You’ve Earned a Say”
meeting concerning social security
and Medicare/Medicaid will be held
July 17. The seminar and opinion
gathering meeting, open to all, will
be a noon luncheon at The Steak-
house in Philip. Updates on the
subjects will be presented. Opin-
ions gathered will again be for-
warded to state and federal elected
officials.
Taking the usual summer break,
the next scheduled meeting for the
Philip chapter AARP/RTA will be
Monday, September 30, at 6:00
p.m. in the Bad River Senior Citi-
zen’s Center.
AARP – woodcarved church to
cemetery center masonry
Undeniable ... by Del Bartels
Depending on our individual level of self-deception, we can go a fairly
long time before reality wins out. For example; I kept telling myself
that it was just the summer sun making my hair appear thinner, until
one day my son asked me why I even bothered to carry a comb. My
“natural part” in the center had become too wide to comb anything
over. Another example is when my self-proclaimed youthful vigor came
crashing down. A woman whom I had been admiring returned my com-
pliments by smiling and saying that I reminded her a lot of her father.
As far as being really “hip,” I finally had to admit, at least to myself,
that I no longer am, since my Hollywood heroes are John Wayne, Doris
Day, Vincent Price and Charlton Heston. If you are asking “Who?” then
I’ve regretfully again proven my point.
Some things are unreasonably, stubbornly denied by individuals. I
know some poor folks who are Democrats. In their own self defense,
they, of course, say that I’m the one in unreasonable denial. I can’t help
but think that some people just never learn. I listen to them talk, po-
litely nod my head in feigned though noncommittal agreement, then
go vote the way that any reasonable person should vote.
Then, some people can be swayed all too easily. If everyone else in a
room starts referring to a certain item as being green, when in reality
it is red, watch how long before the lone victim starts agreeing that the
item is green. Wanting to fit in, or be accepted, often overrides what
they know to be true. Of all my dreamed up accomplishments, one real
one is that I have taught my children to understand advertisements
that try to get you to go along with the crowd, even when the crowd is
wrong. Buying a name brand for no other reason than to fit in used to
be referred to as “keeping up with the Joneses.” It used to be that
“everybody smokes,” thus almost everybody did. If “everybody” were to
walk off of a cliff, would you do so, too? Be careful, though often unspo-
ken, the real answer all too often is a “Yes.”
Some things should be denied. Hitler’s rise to power was a serious of
what “everyone” wanted, until everyone no longer mattered. In Amer-
ica, if everyone actually voted, instead of only a small percentage of the
population, then many politicians and policies would be denied. I have
been told by metropolitan residents that, during rush hour on some
major highways in major cities, that a person going far slower than
other drivers can be ticketed for impeding traffic, even if they are going
the posted speed limit. Does the majority rule, or safety, or sanity? If
reality cannot be denied, then how did prohibition ever get to be a con-
stitutional amendment in the first place?
I have actually proven the pronunciation of “Caribbean” out of the
dictionary, and the other person simply stated that the dictionary was
wrong. I have the argument covered – I state that everything I say is
the absolute truth. If you prove me otherwise, I’ll just deny it.
Greyson Schofield, son of Steven
and Bridget (Vollmer) Schofield,
was born February 25, 2013. He
seemed to be a healthy and happy
boy, with one exception – he had bi-
lateral congenital cataracts. This is
a clouding of the lens inside the eye
which leads to decreased vision. It
is the most common cause of blind-
ness.
Unlike most cataracts, which
occur with age, the rarer congenital
cataracts are present at birth. In
most patients no cause can be
found, however in this instance
congenital cataracts are hereditary
on Bridget’s side of the family. It
had been passed from her grand-
mother to her father and then onto
her oldest brother, his son, Bridget,
her daughter, Elizabeth, and now
to Greyson.
Elizabeth has had many doctor
visits to determine the best form of
treatment. Fortunately, hers were
not as severe as originally thought.
She has been in glasses since be-
fore she was two years old. She de-
veloped amblyopia (lazy eye) when
she was around three years old.
Her good eye was covered four to
eight hours a day for over a year to
correct the lazy eye. She still sees
the eye doctor two to three times a
year to make sure the cataracts are
not worsening. She will have to un-
dergo cataract surgery, most likely
around the age of 12 or 13.
Greyson’s congenital cataracts,
however, are bad enough that he
cannot focus on anything. He has
been examined by three eye doc-
tors. They feel the best thing for
him is to have the cataracts surgi-
cally removed.
His first surgery, on his right
eye, was May 10. The surgery for
his left eye is scheduled for May 17.
It is necessary to have the surger-
ies done under three months of age
due to the rapid growth of the eye
in babies. The surgery is necessary
to help his eyes develop as nor-
mally as possible. Having the
cataracts removed puts Greyson at
greater risk of infections which can
lead to blindness, nystagmus (un-
usual rapid eye movement) and
glaucoma. After surgery, Greyson
will be on a regimen of eye drops
for about 30 days to help keep out
infections. He will require regular
eye exams, along with exams done
under anesthesia, every three
months for at least the next two
years to make sure no other prob-
lems arise and to watch for glau-
coma. These exams will be done in
Sioux Falls by a pediatric ophthal-
mologist.
In normal cases of cataracts, an
artificial intraocular lens is in-
serted into the eye where the orig-
inal lens was removed, but due to
the age of Greyson and that his
eyes are not fully developed, doc-
tors will not put the lens artificial
lens in. Greyson will undergo two
more surgeries, around the age of
six, to have the lenses put in. Until
then, he will be fitted for baby con-
tacts and glasses so he will be able
to see as normally as possible and
so his eyes can develop as normally
as possible.
The parents are thankful this is
not a life threatening disease. They
said that they know God only gives
people what they can handle and
has a plan for everyone.
The Lions Club of Pierre has set
up a benefit fundraiser for Greyson
at the Pizza Ranch in Fort Pierre
on Monday, May 20, from 5:00 p.m.
to 8:00 pm. Proceeds will go to-
wards off setting the medical ex-
penses and traveling expenses in-
curred by the family.

threatened by potential blindness by Gayla Piroutek
There have been several post of-
fices in Haakon County – Hard-
ingrove, Marietta, Hartley, Topbar,
Woodlawn, Hilland, Inavale, Kim-
bro, Wellsburg, Plum Creek, Belle-
plaine, West Fork, Bunker, Elbon,
Carlin, Cardon, Dowling, Driggers,
Elwood, Lucerne, Garland, Grind-
stone, Nitteberg, Nowlin, Old Trail,
Olney, Powell, Smith, West Fork,
Ottumwa, Leslie, Moenville, Ash
Creek, Manila, Milesville, and the
two that remain today, Midland
and Philip.
An interesting note regarding
Wellsburg is that when F.H. Wells
and family left here in 1912, due to
the drought, they got as far as Iowa
where they set up a dairy and
began Wells Blue Bunny ice cream.
The Milesville Post Office closed
in the last year. It had been an in-
tegral part of the Piroutek family
for many years. Dan Piroutek’s
great-grandparents, Peter and
Catherine Kertzman came from
Luxembourg and eventually set-
tled 70 miles west of Pierre along
Plum Creek in 1893 at the new
town of Topbar.
Piroutek’s other great-grandpar-
ents, John and Anna Griffin, ar-
rived in Topbar in 1900. They were
all Irish, as both of their parents
had come from Ireland in the 1840s
during the potato famine. Many
Irish families arrived in America
during the 1840s as they were
starving in Ireland.
The Topbar Post Office opened
on January 19,1901, with Harry
Graham as postmaster. Topbar
was named for the Graham ranch’s
brand T O P with a bar under it it.
Harry Graham later left to start a
store in Milesville. John Griffin
(Dan’s great-grandfather) then be-
came postmaster at Topbar, a posi-
tion he held for 14 years.
Henry Kertzman, the oldest son
of Peter and Catherine, married
Angela Griffin, John’s daughter, in
1906. They continued to work for
the Diamond A Cattle Company on
their free range until 1908 when
they moved about 10 miles north to
the new town of Milesville. The
town was established May 3, 1907,
with Jeremiah Miles becoming the
first postmaster at a salary of $50
per year. This is where Henry
began his adventure in the general
store and postmaster business. He
purchased the Harry Graham store
and became the postmaster at
Milesville on June 13, 1913, a posi-
tion he held for 31.5 years, retiring
January 16, 1945.
Kathryn (Kertzman) Piroutek
was the oldest daughter of Henry
and Angela Kertzman. She met a
handsome baseball player one
summer day at Belvidere. She was
soon the bride of Allen Piroutek.
Allen had taught school, but got a
job at the Belvidere Bank while the
first of the children were born. Op-
portunity opened the door with
Henry Kertzman’s retirement at
Milesville, and the Piroutek family
moved into Kathryn’s childhood
home at Milesville. The store was
gone, but they farmed and ranched
the small acreage they had pur-
chased from her parents. The open
front porch of their home was en-
closed, and converted into the
“new” Post Office, and on Dec. 26,
Milesville Post Office history
1958, Allen Piroutek became Post-
master at Milesville. Allen was 70
years old when he retired from the
Milesville Post Office in August,
1979. He had served for over 20
years.
The next postmaster in the fam-
ily was Gayla (Peterson) Piroutek,
a position she held for 33 years.
Gayla came to the area to be a
country school teacher and married
Allen and Kathryn’s youngest son,
Dan. That made four postmasters
in the family, spanning 110 years.
When John was postmaster at
Topbar from November 6, 1902 to
December 15, 1916, a letter cost
two cents to mail. During Henry’s
time, June 13, 1913 to January 16,
1945, stamps were two and three
cents. During Allen’s postmaster
term from December 26, 1959 to
August 25, 1979, the postage
ranged from four to 15 cents. Dur-
ing Gayla’s time of August 26, 1979
to September 30, 2012, stamps
were 15 cents to 45 cents.
The South Dakota Department
of Education is kicking off the Read
South Dakota! Summer Reading
Challenge, as schools are nearing
the summer break.
“Students who don’t practice
reading during the summer
months lose valuable skills and
may start off the next school year
below the level they were previ-
ously at,” said Secretary of Educa-
tion Dr. Melody Schopp. “It’s a phe-
nomenon that we call “summer
slide,” and it is especially notice-
able with our youngest readers.”
According to Schopp, the Read
South Dakota! challenge is unique
because it promotes the reading of
engaging material at a skill level
appropriate for each child, rather
than focus on reading a certain
number of books.
By entering information about a
child’s reading level and interests
into an online tool called “Find a
Book,” parents and librarians can
Reading challenge to curb learning loss
help children create customized
reading lists with challenging ti-
tles.
Research shows that students
who are reading at grade level by
the end of third grade are more
likely to achieve future academic
and career success, Schopp ex-
plained. The state Department of
Education is focusing on helping
young students reach that critical
milestone, she said.

Rural Livin’
What Happened to My
Winter Wheat?
Winter wheat is said to have
nine lives. While winter wheat has
repeatedly proven its toughness,
the 2012-13 season has provided
exceptional challenges.
Many producers chose to plant
the crop into dry or marginally soil
in the fall of 2012, hoping for rain.
In many cases, the rains did not
come and the crop went into the
winter without germinating. Some
fields suffered wind erosion, seal-
ing the crops fate. In other cases,
moisture came in the form of snow
and/or rain. Some locations re-
ceived just enough moisture to
mold the seed; others enough to
germinate and get it started grow-
ing. In some areas, both scenarios
occurred, with the difference being
the amount of surface residue on
the field and how much snow was
trapped.
When the snow melted, most of
us fully expected the wheat to take
off and grow. Of course the crop
faced another challenge as air tem-
peratures, and consequently, soil
temperatures stayed cold for an
extended period of time.
Under good growing conditions,
the wheat seed will send out the
main root, followed by several
seminal roots, and then the coleop-
tile, which is a leaf sheath that en-
closes and protects the embryonic
plant. The coleoptile continues to
grow, and when it emerges from
the soil, stops, and the first true
leaf pushes through the tip.
Leaves are then produced at a rate
of about one every four to five
days. At the three leaf stage, sev-
eral important changes occur. The
crown is developed, the first tiller
is developed, and the secondary
root system is initiated.
In the spring of 2013, these ten-
der young plants were subjected to
multiple stresses, long periods of
cold soils, slow growth, and mar-
ginal moisture conditions. During
the entire time, the plant is respir-
ing and using energy reserves
from the seed as it is unable to
generate its own energy from pho-
tosynthesis until it has some green
leaf tissue above ground. Seeds
that were planted very shallow
into no-till seedbeds and seeds
planted into fields that suffered
wind erosion may have tried, or
are still trying to send secondary
roots into a duff layer or dry soil
and unable to thrive.
Each tiller relies on its own ad-
ventitious (secondary) root system,
and the plant gradually becomes
more dependent on the adventi-
tious root system as it develops to
become the predominant root
mass. If the plant undergoes
stresses during its development, it
will respond by producing fewer
tillers or by aborting tillers. Lost
tillers can often be traced back to
stresses the plant was subjected
to. Late developing tillers con-
tribute little to overall yield, and
tillers that emerge after the fifth
main shoot leaf are likely to abort
or not produce heads.
If your wheat crop has a reason-
able stand, is developing second-
ary roots and viable tillers, it has
a chance of producing a re-
spectable amount of grain if soil
moisture isn’t severely limiting.
The remaining hindrance to yield
will be the inherent lateness in
maturity, and the risk of high tem-
peratures that are likely to occur
in late June and early July when
the grain fill period will be taking
place.

By Lucas Lentsch,
Secretary of Agriculture
Mother’s Day is celebrated dur-
ing the month of May. This, my
first letter as your Secretary of
Agriculture, I’d like to dedicate in
memory of my mom, Karen.
Like many mothers in agricul-
ture, my mom was hard working.
She was a faithful wife and worked
side by side with my dad and our
family. Her days always seemed to
be longer than ours, up before us
and to bed after us.
Over the years, I remember
many times looking at her cracked
fingers from the chores often asso-
ciated with hands-on dairying. I
can still see her washing and
preparing the cows for milking and
humming a tune. She was tough
too. The first time I remember see-
ing her take a kick from a Holstein
impressed me. Always a lady, she
rarely shared an expletive.
It is fitting we celebrate our
mothers in May when new life is
springing up all around us. With-
out you, there’d be no us.
The many generations of hard
working mothers and grandmoth-
ers throughout South Dakota need
to be thanked. They truly are the
unsung heroes behind the genera-
tions of men who have also worked
to build our agricultural economy.
The women of our farm and ranch
families play a critical dual role for
the success of their operations.
They not only have tended to the
needs of the household, but have
also been a big part of the day to
day chores, especially in animal
agriculture.
All across our great state, many
operations are a working partner-
ship between husband and wife
and still a critical part of their suc-
cess. This calving season, the
women of agriculture may have
tended to an orphaned calf or tried
to warm up a cold one that was just
pulled from the mud. Maybe it’s a
mothering instinct, but we know
women can be as good if not better
caretakers of livestock.
This month, let’s celebrate the
lives of our mothers and the roles
they play as our unsung heroes of
agriculture. If you can, give them a
hug for the rest of us who wish we
still could.
It is my honor and privilege to
serve as your Secretary of Agricul-
ture. As my mother also taught me,
I will work hard for you and do my
best. Have a safe spring and thank
you for your time.
Secretary of Ag Lentsch –
Mothers unsung heroes
The Central States Fair is
pleased to announce that Hairball
will be performing at the Central
States Fair on Monday, August 19,
as part of the Black Hills Power
Concert Series.
Hairball is the world's ultimate
"80's Rock" impersonation act,
recreating the good-time party at-
mosphere of the decadent decade
with unmatched authenticity.
Hairball represents more than 20
of the "80's" biggest and most color-
ful rock 'n roll superheroes! You're
not going to find Guns 'n Roses,
Whitesnake, Bon Jovi, Def Lep-
pard, Motley Crue, Ozzy, AC/DC,
Journey, Poison and more on the
same bill anywhere else!
Joining Hairball will be Here
Come The Mummies. The group
Here Come The Mummies started
when top artists from nationally
known bands came together to per-
form undercover at local establish-
ment in Nashville. To protect their
identity with their regular bands,
the artists chose to wear mummy
attire.
Tickets are scheduled to go on
sale in early July. The Central
States Fair will take place August
16-23, and will again feature four
nights of concerts, three nights of
PRCA Range Days Rodeo and
motor events.

In 2012, drought conditions im-
pacted a majority of South Dakota
grasslands. Many people felt the ef-
fects in the condition of grassland,
livestock conditions and in their
agricultural operations.
The United States Department
of Agriculture’s Natural Resources
Conservation Service in South
Dakota developed and utilizes a
tool to assess drought conditions
using local precipitation data to
model impacts to grazing lands pro-
duction. The S.D. NRCS Drought
Tool uses long term (30-50 year)
and short term precipitation in-
cluding data from High Plains Re-
gional Climate Center and the
South Dakota State University
state climatologist.
With our understanding of his-
toric impacts to grassland condition
and production, we get a clearer
understanding of 2012 drought im-
pacts on grassland.
Understanding current drought
conditions stirs difficult questions.
How is the 2012 drought impacting
the 2013 growing season? What
will it take for grasslands to re-
cover from drought?
Our current grassland drought
conditions reflect the effects of both
precipitation and soil moisture
deficits originating in 2012. Using
current drought conditions in con-
junction with historic average long
term data, we can project future
grazing land production across
South Dakota. South Dakota grass-
lands typically reach peak produc-
tion by early July. This data is used
to predict the potential peak forage
production.
Parts of South Dakota grass-
lands are already experiencing
drought in 2013. Even with aver-
age “normal” precipitation
amounts coming at the right time.
much of South Dakota will con-
tinue to experience drought this
year.
Recovery from current drought
conditions depends on soil moisture
recharge, precipitation timing and
precipitation amounts. Moisture
infiltration to the soil profile is
needed to get out of the drought
status. Unfortunately, high inten-
sity, short lived precipitation (in-
tense spring thunderstorms) typ-
ically results in more runoff than
infiltration. Having a healthy re-
serve and diversity of forage in pas-
tured will enable optimal grassland
infiltration by slowing runoff and
maintaining a healthy soil struc-
ture that maximizes precipitation
availability.
The South Dakota Drought tool
can calculate the monthly precipi-
tation needed to recover from
drought impacts using the critical
precipitation months of April, May
and June. If you have your own
precipitation records, they should
be the best data source when using
the S.D. Drought Tool.
With new understandings of cli-
mate and soil water plant relation-
ships, we are finding new abilities
to assess and plan for grassland
drought. Now is the time to have
plans in place for 2013 drought
conditions. On site farm and ranch
consultations are free of charge
from NRCS. Rangeland manage-
ment speculatists and other techni-
cal staff can help producers with
individual conservation planning
for grassland and cropland re-
sources through suggestions or ex-
ploring other alternatives to mini-
mize impacts to resources during
drought. The new NRCS S.D.
Drought Tool, step by step instruc-
tions, and updated contingency
planning guidance are online at
http://www.sd.nrcs, usda, gov tech-
nical/Range Pasture.html.

The United States House of Rep-
resentatives has passed the Black
Hills Cemetery Act, legislation in-
troduced by Representative Kristi
Noem in January.
With a vote of 390-2, the House
voted to transfer the ownership of
nine Black Hills cemeteries from
the federal government to the care-
taking communities that have
managed them for generations.
“These cemeteries hold great sig-
nificance to surrounding South
Dakota communities, many of
which originated in the old mining
towns of the 1800s. I’m thrilled
that we can transfer the care to
these communities,” said Noem.
“This bill not only honors the folks
who have been preserving these
cemeteries for generations, but will
actually help reduce liability and
potential costs to the U.S. Forest
Service. I look forward to this leg-
islation moving through the Senate
and becoming law.”
The bill impacts nine cemeteries
in the Black Hills: Englewood
Cemetery, Galena Cemetery, Hay-
ward Cemetery, Mountain Mead-
ows Cemetery, Roubaix Cemetery,
Nemo Cemetery, Rockerville
Cemetery, Silver City Cemetery
and Cold Springs Cemetery.
Specifically, the Black Hills
Cemetery Act (H.R.291) would
transfer ownership of these ceme-
teries and up to two acres of adja-
cent land to the caretaking commu-
nities that have managed them for
generations under special-use per-
mits issued by the U.S. Forest
Service. It also requires that the
conveyed land continue to be used
for the same purposes.
Noem first introduced the Black
Hills Cemetery Act during the
112th Congress on February 1,
2012, at the request of community
members near these cemeteries. It
passed the House of Representa-
tives on May 15, 2012 by a vote of
400-1, but was ultimately not con-
sidered by the Senate.
The House Natural Resources
Committee passed this legislation
on March 20, 2013, after Noem re-
introduced it in January. Senators
John Thune and Tim Johnson in-
troduced companion legislation on
March 5, 2013. S447 was referred
to the Committee on Energy and
Natural Resources.

Hi and good morning. Saturday,
May 4, at Somerset Court we had a
special event. Classic cars came
and parked in the Somerset Court
parking lot in the afternoon. Lou
and Pauline Manus, Hot Springs,
let me sit in their 1955 Packard.
Thank you. I had my photo taken.
It was a nice day and lots of resi-
dents came out to see the cars. I es-
pecially liked and took a photo of a
1932 Ford Highboy and a Nash
Rambler.
In the evening, I went with my
niece, Wanda, and her husband, Ed
Artz, over to my son, Wayne
Hansen’s, and wife Gwynn’s in
west Rapid City for supper. Wayne
and Gwynn also entertained M.R.
and Barbara Hansen and their
sons, Clay and Blaise, and Blaise’s
daughter, Willow. We had a big
supper and some of Wanda’s sweet
pickles and her birthday cake. I got
back to my apartment at 9 p.m.
and a Somerset Court medic gave
me my nose drops and a Tylenol.
May 5, 2013, at Somerset Court
Wanda and Ed Artz left for their
home in Humboldt. Ed talked to
old friend, Agnes Tastad, at break-
fast. They had lived on neighboring
farms near Stickney years ago.
A new Somerset Court resident
is Jeff Farr. Jeff has a shirt that
says, “Meet me at the mud hole.”
Jeff used to work for the Rapid City
Journal and a bunch of his co-
workers had a project of providing
absorbent mats to absorb spills of
water or grease to prevent slip-
page. Members earned a title of
“New pig!”
At our Sunday, May 5, nonde-
nominational church service the
theme for hymns selected was
guiding lights: “Let the Lower
Lights be Burning,” and “Jesus,
Savior Pilot Me.” Charlie says that
there would be light ships along
dangerous coasts. Other songs
sang were “Let There Be Showers
of Blessings,” and “Stand Up,
Stand Up for Jesus.” It was men-
tioned that the song, “Over There”
was a great morale builder in
WWI.
May 5, 2013, was strawberry fes-
tival at Somerset Court. We had
various strawberry treats that
were served to residents and visi-
tors. There was a good crowd of
people interested in Somerset
Court as a possible place to live for
their parents or others.
Staff members at Somerset
Court had a table where they sold
bags of cookies they had baked and
all the proceeds were donated to
Special Olympics.
My son, Wayne, gave me a fine,
big potato from the Donald and De-
loris Denke ranch near Pavilion,
Wyo. This potato has several ‘eyes’
sprouting and I cut one off one end
and planted it. Would you like to
plant an eye from my potato? I
would give you one.
A new Somerset Court resident
is Shirley Hessman. She has lived
in Rapid City since she was 11
years old. She lived in Scribner,
Neb., before that. She has a son in
Rapid City and a daughter in Reno.
Shirley likes to play cards; crib-
bage, hand and foot and gin
rummy.
Thank you to Darlene Baye for
your nice letter.
Tuesday, May 7, 2013, at Somer-
set Court we had a foot clinic with
a long list of residents attending.
We are thankful to have this clinic
here at Somerset Court.
Tuesday bingo winners were
Sherman Ellerton, Ina Oerlline,
Bert Schneider, Agnes Tastad,
Charlie Hathaway, Jim Hilton and
Vivian Hansen. For snack and chat
we had deviled eggs that were
pretty and delicious.
After bingo, Marilyn Butts, Fred
Smith and Vivian spent some time
outdoors, as it was warm and not
windy. The sky was beautiful with
white fluffy clouds on bright blue. I
wear Virgil’s old dark glasses. Our
prescriptions were always very
similar.
My niece, Wanda Meyer Artz
phoned Tuesday to say that she
had received word of the death of
Paul Schilling, Ashton. Paul was
the son of Harry and Alma
Schilling, Redfield. Alma is my
niece. I am sorry to hear that Paul
died. He had a long career of per-
sonal health care at the State
Home in Redfield. He also spent
seven years in the Army stationed
in Turkey. He leaves his wife,
Michelle, and daughter Samantha
as well as his twin brothers, Henry
and Ted Schilling, and sister Ruth
Logan.
Thank you to David Hansen who
emailed about the news that ci-
cadas are expected in force along
the east coast of USA this year. He
remembers the quite sounds they
made when he was a kid in Philip.
He also mentions that on May 6, at
the home Gene and Theresa
Deuchar, a group of friends met for
a party for Edmund and Elsie
(Hey) Baye. We have always know
them as Sonny and Elsie (Ozzie)
lived in Philip a few years ago be-
fore moving to Sioux Falls. Ozzie is
retiring from her position as super-
intendent of schools at Faith.
Sonny and Ozzie will be returning
to their longtime home in Sioux
Falls. To think of Ozzie, reminds
me of her work on the grand South
Dakota history book, “Haakon
Horizons.”
Wednesday, May 8, 2013, at
Somerset Court, we were enter-
tained by Music Messangers, a
flute, clarinet, and piano. Thank
you. We enjoyed their music. They
played many fine old well-known
songs from famous operas. “Some-
where Over the Rainbow,” “Amaz-
ing Grace,” “Someone to Watch
Over Me,” “I’ve Got Rhythm,”
“Ain’t Misbehavin’,” “When You’re
Smiling,” and “Let Me Call You
Sweetheart” were some of the
tunes. Nancy, the piano player, had
made an arrangement of George
Gershwin’s “Summertime” from
“Porgy and Bess.”
The funeral of my niece’s son,
Paul Schilling, Ashton, was held in
Redfield Saturday, May 11, 2013,
at the Untied Methodist Church.
My sympathy to family and
friends. Online, www.thelenfuner-
alhome.com will take messages for
the family.
May 7, Irene McKnight had her
ear worked on and now she can
hear! We are all very thankful.
May 8, 2013, my son, Wayne,
and wife Gwynn took me over to
Rapid City Regional Hospital and
at the doctor’s request I was fitted
with a heart monitor to be worn till
May 10. I could see my little heart
going burpity, slurp, slurp, burpity
slurp, slurp. No wonder it is tired!
Wayne sent along two little perch,
my favorite, and I ate one for sup-
per. Thanks.
Addie, Mary Lou, Irene Cox, Lu-
cille Huether and Vivian Hansen
played five crowns with a lot of
zest. It has been a favorite since my
nephew, Leonard Meyer, and wife
Jean sent the game for my birth-
day. Thank you.
Susan, Ina, Irene Arbach, and
maybe Marcella Kraft, played a lit-
tle whist on Wednesday afternoon.
M.R. Hansen came to play scrab-
ble. He had just arrived back from
a meeting of the Dakota Chapter of
the American Concrete Institute at
Detroit. He felt that there was good
discussion and that he gave and re-
ceived useful information. It
sounded like Detroit is wound up
pretty tight.
Thursday, May 9, at Somerset
Court Wii bowling scores were Lu-
cille Huether, 91, Irene McKnight,
159, Eileen Tenold, 147, Irene Cox,
119, Fred Smith, 169, Marilyn
Butts, Addie Rorvig, 140, Jim
Holmes, 163, Mary Lou Peters,
108, Mildred Kraemer, 124, and
Susan, 167.
Thursday bingo winners were
Dwight Mann, Irene McKnight,
Marilyn Butts, Addie Rorvig, Anne
Brink, Alvin Ellerton, Viola
Walker, Mary Klauck, Doris Well-
man and Jim Hilton.
For snack and chat we had bars
made with cereal and ice water and
coffee.
After bingo, we had a table of
players for the now favorite game
of five crowns. Lucille Huether,
Addie Rorvig, Mary Lou Peters,
Susan and Vivian played. Vivian’s
daughter-in-law, Gwynn Hansen,
came for a visit so Vivian left.
Gwynn brought me a bunch of
pretty new spring tops and slacks.
Thank you, Gwynn.
It was nice out again today and I
walked outside around the three
sides of the Somerset Court build-
ing that has a sidewalk.
Thank you to Vinnie and Danny
for sending via email three photos
of their beautiful yard in Santa
Cruz, Calif. Many flowers are in
bloom, just in time for Danny’s
showing of his abstract art and
serving of chocolate, and Vinnie’s
birthday, which was May 9. Vinnie
was born on Mother’s Day!
I see a bank of nasturtiums, at
the foot of a tree which has been
shaped and trimmed and it looks
like there is a cat house up in the
tree. Then there are droves of four-
foot poppies, big beds of pink and
rose colored flowers, and bushes of
lavender to purple daisy-like small
flowers. There is an attractive stat-
uary and a new fence with a lattice
top. I am sure I don’t describe the
yard adequately!
You have to be up really early to
see the fairies harvesting the fresh
mown grass. They lay the blades of
grass in neat piles and tie them
with wisps of weed. When the sun
peeps over the horizon, they are all
gone like a dream.
Looking down at the courtyard
early May 10, in the morning, I see
Sandi putting up the big colorful
umbrellas and placing cushions on
the easy chairs. Friday, May 10, at
Somerset Court, we had the annual
Mother’s Day tea. The hospitality
area on second floor was trans-
formed into a huge tea party set-
ting with many tables with white
table cloths. Tea service from Som-
erset Court’s extensive collection of
tea pots, tea cups and saucers were
brought out for our use. A variety
of tea favors were available, and we
were served cucumber and radish
sandwiches, cookies, grapes, straw-
berries, salted peanuts and choco-
lates. Guests received various col-
ored corsages with ribbons and
pearls and a big flower. Thank you
to Somerset Court and our activity
directors, Sandi, Shawn, and
Susan. There was a good turn out
of residents with many daughters
and daughters-in-law joining us.
Many photos were taken.
Friday, May 10, Gwynn Hansen
took me to Rapid City Regional
Hospital to have my heart monitor
removed. On the way back to Som-
erset Court, we did a couple of
garage sales. The weather was
ideal.
After the tea, my daughters-in-
law, Gwynn and Barbara Hansen,
came over to my apartment for a
scrabble game. Thank you, girls.
Thank you to my nephew,
Leonard Meyer, Greenfield, Ind.
He sent an email with sound about
‘fill-harmonic’ music. People have
built a living area on top of a land
fill, and have salvaged anything us-
able from the dump. They have
even built musical instruments out
of oil cans and junked parts of
things and it is wonderful that they
have made professional sounding
instruments. It is a touching email.

Dear Parents,
Your children are invited to join the
Haakon County Public Library’s Sum-
mer Reading Program and attend the
fun programs and events we are plan-
ning for chil dren ages two to 10. This
summer’s theme, Dig Into Reading, is
about the wonders under our feet –
root vegetables, buried treasure, evi-
dence of ancient civilizations, insects,
dinosaur bones, and more. The pro-
grams are free and open to children of
all abilities.
The public library cares about your
children and has planned programs to
keep them reading and learning
through most of the summer. Whether
keeping track of the amount of time
your children spend reading or the
number of books they have read this
summer, children who join the sum-
mer library program keep their minds
active and enter school in the fall
ready to learn and ready to succeed.
And remember, you are your child’s
first teacher. Look at picture books
with your children who have not
learned to read and point out people,
ani mals, and objects in the pictures.
Read to your children and ask them to
read to you. Your librarian will be
happy to help you find books that are
just right. We hope that you and your
family enjoy looking at books and
reading together and that you dis-
cover the treasures of your library.
Stop in at the library or call 859-
2442 for more information and a
schedule of events. Registration be-
gins on May 15th.

Obituaries
Mary E. Jones, age 94, of Quinn,
S.D., died Sunday morning May 5,
2013, at the Hans P. Peterson Me-
morial Hospital in Philip.
The world lost a treasure May 5,
2013, when Mary Jones left us.
Mary filled her 94 years with a zest
for life few can match.
As a young child, Mary’s natural
love of life and those around her de-
lighted her parents and two older
siblings. Being a number of years
younger than her brother and sis-
ter she was the apple of every-
body’s eye.
During her elementary and high
school years Mary’s ability to de-
velop and cement friendships bud-
ded and blossomed. Throughout
her life, she seemed to be a friend
magnet. One young man, Doug
Jones, was lucky enough to attract
her. They were married October 31,
1946 and Mary brought the same
enthusiasm for life and love of peo-
ple into her new home. An after-
noon in her home, one meal at the
Jones table, and you were forever
one of the family. Life was never
dull when Mary was around, affec-
tionately referred to as a “Forever
Party Girl.”
Throughout it all, Mary was in-
volved in her children’s classrooms
and activities--Scouts and Jobs
Daughters. Each child had an elab-
orate birthday party every year –
even with two of them falling
within a week of Christmas! Wife,
mother, employee, and she still had
time for bridge, majong, oil paint-
ing, crafts, and crocheting her fa-
mous dishcloths.
Mary loved to travel. In her later
years she was able to visit children
and grandchildren in Colorado,
Idaho, Texas, North and South
Dakota. When Mary was 80, she
fulfilled a life-time dream with the
help of two of her daughters – three
days in Vegas!! Mary never stopped
a minute and wore out both her
daughters. Besides her family and
friends, Mary had great love for her
dogs, Shadow, Chevas, and Tena –
and football. She could out pick
most of the experts on any given
Sunday (to the great chagrin of her
sons-in-law). Her greatest football
love though was the Broncos. One
of the highlights of her life was
when she got to attend a Bronco’s
game at Mile High Stadium.
Another well-earned pet name,
“Energizer Bunny,” demonstrated
itself in both Mary’s personal and
professional life. While raising four
children, Mary worked in many dif-
ferent professions from telephone
operator in Winner, hosting greet-
ing card parties in her home, secre-
tarial work, Avon district leader-
ship positions, motel owner in
Custer and Wall, and finally as a
hostess at the Cactus Café in Wall.
Her fondest quote was, “I started
getting old when I quit working.”
(at the age of 85).
At Mary’s request cremation has
taken place.
A celebration of life open house
was held Saturday, May 11, at the
Quinn Community Center in
Quinn.
Arrangements were with the
Rush Funeral Chapel of Wall.

Greetings from the Black Hills of
South Dakota where Bill and I are
nestled in a campground for a few
days. It seems that there is a con-
spiracy afoot whenever we think
about traveling in the motorhome.
The price of diesel went up 10 cents
from morning until noon and the
wind came up to 30 to 40 mph as
we struggled to get to Rapid and
set up for the night.
Daniel Jordan spent Monday
night with great-grandparents
George and Sandee Gittings.
Sandee took him home Tuesday
morning on her way to work.
Monday, Tony Harty got his
mail, went out for breakfast, and
did some other errands around
town, then stopped by our place in
the afternoon to give me news.
Monday, Bill and I were on the
road home from our enjoyable week
of visiting family in the Madison
and Sioux Falls area, arriving soon
enough that Bill got in some card
playing in Philip and picked up
some parts for his tryke that has
been giving him a fit. Phyllis Word
was a visitor with me after we got
home as well as Heidi Coller and
Tony Harty.
Don and Vi Moody did a pasture
rotation the first part of the week
for their cattle at the ranch and got
their farming tractors ready for
planting some alfalfa where the
stand looks a little thin. They are
still concerned about the pastures
and the lack of moisture. It has
been so severely dry that the small
amount of moisture that came from
the three fairly strong snowstorms
really didn't have the moisture con-
tent that was hopefully expected.
Dams gained a little bit of water.
Pastures are showing slow re-
growth due to shortage of moisture.
It's a wait and see game as to plan-
ning animal units regarding long
or even short term grazing capac-
ity.
Tuesday, Bill was engrossed in
the repair of the tryke, needing to
pick up parts in Philip. I was on a
run with the Haakon County
Prairie Transportation in the after-
noon to Rapid City.
Tuesday, Tony Harty was doing
errands around town and Wednes-
day he got the water turned on at
the Hair home since they were
coming into town for a couple of
days. He visited Dale O’Connell at
his shop. Dale has been busy get-
ting folks up and running so mow-
ing can take place.
Don and Vi Moody had business
in Philip Wednesday for hair ap-
pointments and also checking Vi's
Jeep Cherokee at the body shop. It
is going through a facial lift since
Don had that tree run into it! Vi
said it's her "horse" of course and
green broke at last. That's not the
only all purpose vehicle that is in
Philip right now. Rusty Baye was
out checking the 4x4 utility vehicle
which has a front leg growl. So,
Rusty and Don removed the tire
and after rotation found it wasn't
the brake pad but will have to
check out a little deeper into it's
problem. Good they have other
4x4s for checking the ranch water
issues, etc. and get a little fun too!
Happy to report that the tryke
was running and Bill took it for a
test run to visit Dale O’Connell at
his shop. We also discovered why
the water in the motorhome was
the color of black shoe polish all the
time we used it the week before, it
seems that the charcoal filter
under the sink ruptured and was
sending the black out into the lines,
we were thankful it was the worst
at the toilet and the rest of the
lines weren’t so bad. Plugged that

The sky is overcast this Monday
morning. At this point it doesn’t
look as if we will get any rain from
those clouds. With temperatures
moving toward the upper 80s, I’m
thinking we will be in the 90s by
noon. According to the weatherman
we were predicted to be in the 90s
Tuesday. Spring was slow to warm
up, we have now gone from below
normal temperatures to above nor-
mal. I like those 70 degree temper-
atures, but we are not in charge of
the weather.
When you live in rural America
and your livelihood depends on
Mother Nature you often times find
yourself looking toward the sky.
Having been married to a farmer
for almost 53 years, I’ve learned
the importance of the land to a
farmer. The same goes for a
rancher. That land is a huge part
of who they are. It’s what brought
pioneers to this great land with
their hopes and their dreams for
the future. And over those years,
not a farmer or a rancher escapes
the challenges of Mother Nature.
The love for the land with its chal-
lenges and its times of plenty and
with prayer mixed in gives that
farmer or rancher the courage to
continue to live on that land that
defines who they are.
Farmers and ranchers in this
area are now faced with those chal-
lenges, as due to lack of snow this
past winter and the lack of rain
this spring, the land is parched.
The lack of that moisture has be-
come critical. Ranchers are selling
part of their herds and for some
they are selling their whole herd,
as there’s just not enough grass on
those pastures to feed their cattle.
Farmers are keeping watch over
their crops as they struggle to grow
and some crops are finished, they
won’t make it. Dams have little, to
no water in this area, making folks
thankful for rural water. For our
ancestors, when the dams went
dry, they were out of water for their
cattle.
Moving on to a different subject,
I hope all you mothers had a nice
Mother’s Day. After church, Jerry
and I went for a drive winding up
at Wall Drug having a bite to eat
and noticing the tourists are off
and running. Later, we picked up
some chicken and potato salad at
the local store and headed for Ivan
Schanzenbach’s for a good visit.
While looking through my aunt,
Esther’s, photo albums I ran across
an article Esther had saved with
the heading “Teacher’s Skeleton”
by Joe Koller from a June 1940
issue of “Hoofs and Horns.” Well,
with a heading like that, it sparked
my interest. In the first paragraph
it told, “Hoofs and Horns is a class-
room fixture in the Little Eagle
School, located out of Midland on
South Dakota prairies.” Ivan said
he thought that school had been up
north on the Nesheim place before
being moved three-quarters of a
mile north of Schanzenbach’s. Ole
Sandal had moved the school to
that location. Ivan remembers they
named the school Little Eagle
School. It was later moved south of
Fosheim’s and it was there when
mom taught in that school and Phil
and I attended school there. I be-
lieve Ivan said Pete Fosheim and
Percy Hand had moved it to that lo-
cation. Anyway, it is an interesting
article about that school, its
teacher and the students who went
there. Ivan remembers the teacher,
Mrs. Tivis, as he and his sister,
Joan, went to that school. But, that
story is for another time, I haven’t
time to do it justice for this week,
but do have plans to do so at a later
date. When sharing about that ar-
ticle with Karel Reiman, she re-
membered the Tivis name, said
some of them lived at Pedro which
is north of Creighton where Karel
grew up. She mentioned the name
Bonnie Tivis which was the name
of the teacher at that school. It is a
small world after all!
The Lutheran ladies of Rebecca
Circle entertained at the Philip
Nursing Home Friday. Cassidy
Trapp, who finished with her first
year at School of Mines in Rapid
City, played a number of songs on
the piano. The ladies served lunch
before heading back home.
Trinity Lutheran Church at
Midland is busy working on plans
for their 100th anniversary which
will be held on June 1. So be watch-
ing for more information as time
gets closer.
Our sympathies to the family of
Norma Olney of Kadoka, whose fu-
neral service was at Our Lady of
Victory Catholic Church at Kadoka
Saturday. She and her husband,
Bud, had a large family and lived
in the Kadoka area for many years.
Keith Hunt and Christine
Niedan left for Smith Center, Kan,.
Thursday, picking up their niece,
Deidra Hackerott, bringing her
back to Midland with them Friday.
Saturday, Roy and Carol Hunt,
Keith Hunt, Christine and Deidra
attended the high school gradua-
tion at Philip of former classmates
of Deidra’s from when they were at
the Midland School. Christine and
Deidra attended the reception for
her former classmate, Jamie
Reimann, held at the home of her
parents, Rick and Rayma, Midland.
Deidra will be graduating from
Smith Center School next week-
end. Sunday, Teresa Palmer,
Murdo, came to Midland joining
the rest of the crew for church serv-
ices in which Deidra was presented
with her senior quilt of memories
made by some of the ladies of Trin-
ity Lutheran. Also Sunday, moth-
ers were given plants for Mother’s
Day. And then it was off to Kansas
where Keith, Christine, and Deidra
met her dad, Brian, halfway be-
tween Midland and Smith Center.
That was a very busy few days!
For those who live in rural
America, we have seen the changes
that have taken place over the
years. Schools are consolidating
due to student enrollment changes
in small towns. We remember and
miss what was, but change it is.
And when things such as gradua-
tions come around you remember
those graduations that used to be
in your town. Former Midland stu-
dents graduating from Philip High
School were Thomas Doolittle,
Katelyn Enders, Samantha Hus-
ton, Jamie Reimann, and Gavin
Snook. Congratulations, grad-
uates! And, as you move toward
this next journey in your life, em-
brace it and stay focused on your
dreams for the future.
Sunday afternoon, Clint and
Prerry Saucerman picked up
Wilma Saucerman and Marlin
Evans and headed for Wall where
they met Ellie Saucerman and fam-
ily for a time of visiting and having
an ice cream treat. Meleah Saucer-
man, five, and Raygen, two, came
back with them to spend a few days
with grandpa Clint and grandma
Prerry. Clint, Wilma, Meleah and
Raygen visited with Gaylord
Saucerman at the Philip Nursing
Home and Prerry took her mom,
Marlin, back to her apartment at
the Senechal. Alaetra Evans vis-
ited her grandma, Marlin Evans,
having lunch with her and others
at the Senechal.
Karel Reiman headed for Rapid
City Monday being on hand to help
out her sister, Paula Eisenbraun,
following her cataract surgery.
Thursday Ed, Linda, Karel and
Paula celebrated an early Mother’s
Day taking their mom, Goldie
Eisenbraun, out for dinner. Friday,
Karel and her brother, Ed Eisen-
braun, and his wife, Linda, helped
in the moving of Paula’s things to
the Victorian Assisted Living in
Rapid City. After a busy week,
Karel returned to her home later
Friday.
Saturday, Karel and Mark
Reiman attended Jamie Reimann’s
reception at the home of her folks,
Rick and Rayma Reimann. They
enjoyed visiting with many of the
Jamie’s family, Stanley and Vicki
Reimann and Forrest (Pete)
Reimann and his friend, all of Sun-
dance, Rudy Reimann, Belvidere,
Mary (Reimann) and Beau Ravel-
lette, Gage and Taryn, Philip,
Martha (Reimann) Ulrich and her
husband, Marvin, Glendive, Mont.,
JoAnn Reimann and her son, Kent,
Caputa. JoAnn’s late husband,
Chris, was a brother to Rick. Tom
and Helen Harty were also there,
as were Hugh and Ann Harty, all
of the Milesville area, and a num-
ber of Rayma’s cousins were also
there. Everyone had a good time
visiting along with enjoying a deli-
cious meal and cake.
Following church at St. Peters
Lutheran, which sits on a high hill
south of Midland, the following en-
joyed a bountiful meal at a local
restaurant in Philip for Mother’s
Day, Karel Reiman and Mark
Reiman, Deb and Marvin Moor and
Harlan Moor, Kadoka, and Delores
Peters and Jim Peters.
Sophie Foley and her daughter,
Renee Schofield, and family,
Kadoka, enjoyed eating out and a
leisurely day at Pierre for Mother’s
Day. It was such a beautiful day
they took a walk down by the river.
A day to just enjoy with no appoint-
ments or anything that had to be
done.
Midland Market is happening in
Midland again this summer at the
Midland City Park.
Randy and Holly Nemec helped
their daughter, Katey and Brian
Ortlieb, Morgan, Tanner and
Taiton, move to a rental home in
Sturgis Saturday. The Ortliebs
begin construction on a new home
in Sturgis this week, their home in
Black Hawk has already sold.
Randy and Holly Nemec made a
trip to Pierre Sunday on their mo-
torcycle to celebrate Mother's Day.
Holly reports that it was a nice
ride.
Barbara Jones drove down to
Wessington Springs last Friday to
attend a grandparent’s day pro-
gram for granddaughter, Piper
Jones. She had a nice visit with all
the family. After watching Piper in
elementary track races, Barb and
her son, Pat Jones, left for Kimball
to watch Barb’s grandson and Pat’s
son, Braden, participate in the high
school track meet. Saturday, Mor-
ris and Barbara attended the grad-
uation ceremonies at Philip High
School, participating in the gradu-
ation parties for several former
Midland students. They then
stopped to see Arline Petoske at
the nursing home and on to Mid-
land to have cake and ice cream for
Barb’s birthday at Jon and Jen-
nifer Jones’ home.
Ernie and Laurel Nemec spent
about a week visiting their son,
Rick, his wife, Sue, and grandsons,
Ben Nemec and Riley Nemec, in
Hazel Green, Wis. All of them en-
joyed attending the boy’s school ac-
tivities in Dubuque, Iowa. Riley
was in a musical play and also com-
peted in a track meet at Roosevelt
Middle School. They attended the
National Honor Society program at
Dubuque Senior High School
where Ben was one of the students
inducted. Laurel reports it rained a
lot while they were there and Iowa
looks nice and green.
Shorty and Maxine Jones drove
to Dell Rapids for the funeral of
friend Myron Joneson recently.
They got acquainted back during
the South Dakota Centennial
Wagon Train days in 1989 and
Shorty has relied on Myron’s draft
horse expertise many times over
the years. Especially for his guid-
ance in going to the Amish commu-
nities in Iowa to buy draft horses.
Those trips were fun and visiting
with the young Amish farmers was
interesting and quite an education
in how they modify their 'old' rules
to help with farming in modern
times.
Myron was 81 years old, had
been living in a beautiful nursing
home in Dell Rapids the past cou-
ple of years, with his wife, Mar-
garet, residing in the assisted liv-
ing facility under the same roof.
Shorty and Maxine visited them
several times the last few years, es-
pecially enjoying seeing their farm
and horses east of Dell Rapids.
Shorty and Maxine drove to the
ranch of friends Jack and Dottie
Dahl near Gackle, N.D., early last
week, staying overnight for a visit
with their family before attending
Dahls' bull sale Tuesday. Monday
supper is a great time of visiting
with longtime family friends not
seen often enough.
Last Saturday was a very nice
80th birthday celebration of Jone-
ses Indian Creek ranch neighbor,
Delores Bonenberger, which Shorty
and Maxine attended, then had
supper at Club 27 and listened to
Lonnie Johnstons' band and visited
with friends for a few hours. Max-
ine reports it was great to learn
that several friends living in the
Badlands have had either good
showers or even a real rain last
week. Now, if it would just spread
across all the areas that need it so
badly, that would be a true bless-
ing.
Mothers' Day, Shorty and Max-
ine had dinner at a local restaurant
at Kadoka and then drove down to
the artist’s open house at the Fry-
ing Pan Ranch. They always have
that on Mothers' Day, and it is a
wonderful show of the work of
many talented artists. Some are
local artists and others from a dis-
tance. This year their featured
artist was Mr. Dubois from
Spearfish. Maxine reports there
was a story about him in the Sun-
day Rapid City Journal telling of
his generosity in donating his art
work (water color paintings) to be
sold for fundraising for good
causes.
The following came from a re-
port on Terry Hand. In October
2012, Terry Hand was appointed
by Governor Daugaard to serve on
the South Dakota Wheat Commis-
sion. Hand, along with his two
brothers, Michael and David, raise
spring and winter wheat, sunflow-
ers, corn, and milo near Midland.
In addition, the family runs a
cow/calf and backgrounding opera-
tion. The Hands also have an offi-
cial advisor, their father, James
David Hand. Congratulations,
Terry!
Bad River Club
May 3, 2013, this was our last
meeting until September. We were
glad all our members could be to-
gether. A beautiful day and for
once very little wind! Those arriv-
ing at the home of Wilma Saucer-
man to enjoy the afternoon were,
Betty Sinkey, Verona Evans,
Kathy Tolton, Janice Bierle, Emily
Sammons, and Isabelle Sampson.
Wilma read the creed and led the
flag salute. I am sure we all have
had cooking disasters at one time
or other, so during roll call we
shared our own with each other.
We tried our hand at unscrambling
letters of trees and shrubs but
didn’t fare too well. In keeping
with our tradition, Wilma will send
a “Golden Book” to Dustin and C.
J. Vollmer’s little girl, Addalyn.
Pictures showed the talent of
Clint Saucerman’s hobby of mak-
ing sculptures from odds and ends
of iron to be transformed into
trains, motorcycles, stage coaches
(complete with shot guns), a vari-
ety of birds, animals and even a
carousel for his granddaughter
which goes up and down. Simply
amazing what he can do from
things we would probably just
throw away.
Emily was sitting on the right
chair and took home a gift from the
hostess. Since we met during the
first days of May, Wilma made a
decorative May pole arising from
the beautiful crocheted yellow doily
in the center of the luncheon table
which added to her table décor.
Just before we went our separate
ways, we gathered together for
prayer and good food to eat. Sep-
tember hostess will be Isabelle and
it was decided starting in Septem-
ber we will meet at 1:30.
See you in September!

Time to close my column for an-
other week. School will soon be out
for many schools. Students and
teachers, alike, are ready for an-
other school year to be done and
ready for summer vacation to
begin.
Family got word that JoAnn
Mulder of Yankton passed away
and her funeral service was Satur-
day. Through marriage she be-
came a family member to many
folks in this area. Her husband,
Pete Mulder, was married to Mar-
garet Walker for many years. Mar-
garet was the daughter of the late
Henry and Anna (Fosheim)
Walker, Bryant. Some time after
Margaret passed away, Pete met
JoAnn and they eventually mar-
ried. JoAnn and Pete came to the
Fosheim Easter gatherings in Mid-
land for many years until for
health reasons, JoAnn was no
longer able to come. She was Nor-
wegian, was such a nice person,
and fit right in with the family
gatherings. Pete’s family has come
to the Easter gatherings for many
years and we missed Pete and
JoAnn not able to be with us. We
continue to pray for rain, we are in
critical times with little to no mois-
ture. Because of the drought be
watchful for fires and keep safe.

Ron & Shirley Doud 25138 223rd St Midland SD
Sunday May 26th beginning at 100 pm
Refreshments will be provided; please bring your own
lawnchairs. In case of inclement weather, the celebration will
be moved to the home of Judy Fosheim,
east end of Main St., Midland, SD
off and all was good. Had a nice
phone visit from cousin Janet
(Fairchild) Snow. She and Jim,
Redding, Calif., were doing well,
enjoying going back in time to see
where they used to live. They took
daughter Marci and friend Eric to
a rodeo. Darn, I can’t remember all
the details, but to make a long
story short, she was the rodeo
queen there in 1953, so that was
fun. I asked if they had it an-
nounced that she was in the audi-
ence and the answer was no. She
said hello to all friends from Philip.
(I need to take notes when talking
on the phone so the report is more
accurate.)
George Gittings was up to Lor-
raine and Henry Hanson's Wednes-
day afternoon to get some cattle
cake. Sandee Gittings was in Mid-
land Wednesday afternoon on busi-
ness.
Thursday morning, Bonnie Rig-
gins and I took a drive to Sturgis
where she had an appointment.
When I got home, I visited Emma
Jarl at the care center and Lova
Bushnell at the apartments. While
I was gone, Bill worked on the big
mower and got it running real
good. He visited Dale O’Connell a
couple of times during the day. We
got the whole yard mowed for the
first time this year, which is a bit
sooner than we mowed last year.
Don and Vi Moody headed up to
Rapid Thursday evening to be on
hand for the largest Rapid City
garage sale and flea market two
day event at the fairgrounds event
center Friday. A big crowd for sure
and lots of bargains. Vi's stuff all fit
into one handpainted, horse deco-
rated, tote bag, the last of the big
spenders.
Thursday, Tony Harty picked up
Shirley Hair and the two of them
made many stops around Kadoka,
then made a trip to Wanblee, and
had dinner out when they got back
in town. Then Tony visited at her
house. L.D. had been working in
the Philip area but they took off for
Oelrich that evening to get to the
job there.
Daniel Jordan came home with
Sandee Gittings Friday afternoon.
George, Sandee and Daniel at-
tended the open house for Gunner
Hook that evening. Jessica picked
up Daniel there.
Friday, Tony Harty had break-
fast out, then stopped by our house
for a short visit and to catch up on
reading the papers, then was
shooed out the door so we could get
on the road.
Bill got a haircut early Friday
morning, then we got things lined
up for a few days in the Black Hills.
We got settled in, in time to go to
the car races where it rained, caus-
ing a delay, and got plenty cold.
(Where are the coveralls when you
need them?) Saturday, we spent
some time visiting Grandson Zack
Seager and family. Zack, Cori and
Ryder went to Philip in the after-
noon and visited at the home of
Casey Seager and when they got
back home were busy painting a
bedroom in anticipation of the new
baby that should be here in a few
weeks. Bill and I went through the
Black Hills and had supper in
Deadwood, running into Don and
Vi Moody and friend Bonnie.
Mother's Day, Don and Vi Moody
packed a picnic lunch and decided
to take a drive down memory lane
through the Black Hills on High-
way 16 and past the Three Forks
Inn, Sheridan Lake, where they
water skied a lot (on one ski) and
then had lunch overlooking Pactola
Lake, continuing on past Trout
Haven and Horse Creek Inn, and
Whispering Pines and all those
beautiful areas that have changed
a lot in past years. A beautiful day
and they returned on I-90 East
after having dessert at Deadwood.
Sunday, Bill and I were supper
guests at the home of Zack Seager
where he grilled up a feast for
Mother’s Day. We felt guilty keep-
ing them from work since they
were busy working in the yard,
planting flowers and adding dirt to
keep Ryder from crashing into a ce-
ment retaining wall, plus doing an-
other coat of paint in the bedroom.
Sandee and Jessica Gittings took
Daniel to Worthington, Minn., Sat-
urday so that he could spend time
with his dad, but his dad didn't
show up so they returned home
late that night. George Gittings
went to graduation and the open
house for Norm and Kay Payne
Saturday afternoon.
Saturday, Tony Harty attended
the baccalaureate, scholarships
and graduation ceremony in Philip
and his great-nephew, Quade
Slovek, was among the graduates.
He enjoyed seeing many friends at
the event and reception at Keith
Slovek’s home.
Yard and work kept both Ralph
and Cathy Fiedler busy this week
in Sturgis. The Black Hills are
starting to show the effects of no
moisture. Sunday they went to
Spearfish to the Eric Hanson home
for a Mother’s Day cookout and to
celebrate Lynette Klumb’s birth-
day which was Thursday. It is also
Betty Bierwagen’s birthday, so
birthday greetings are sent her
way in North Dakota. Joining the

Western Great Plains Conference track meet
by Lura Roti, for South
Dakota Game, Fish & Parks
In 2012 Zach Thomsen was re-
cruited to join the South Dakota
Game, Fish and Parks team of
wildlife conservation officers.
For the Brandon, S.D., native
who spent his youth hunting and
fishing on his grandparents'
Hutchinson County farm – this is
his dream job.
“Since day one, this has been my
dream job. I want to do what I can
to preserve South Dakota's natural
resources. This is the best way I
can think of to do that,” Thomsen
said.
Thomsen said his career decision
was influenced by conservation of-
ficers he got to know over the years
when they would stop by his grand-
parent's farm to check hunting li-
censes or help his grandpa with a
predator control issue. He said
that after college when he began
working for South Dakota Game,
Fish & Parks at the Outdoor Cam-
pus in Sioux Falls, Minnehaha
County Wildlife Conservation Offi-
cer, Jeremy Roe, continued to en-
courage him to pursue his dream.
“I saw what he did and I liked
the fact that as a wildlife conserva-
tion officer he got to work outdoors
with wildlife and with people,” said
Thomsen who received a bachelor's
in wildlife and fisheries sciences in
2009 from South Dakota State Uni-
versity.
Trained to serve
public and wildlife
Today Thomsen is visiting with a
classroom of Philip Elementary
first graders on what he does as a
wildlife conservation officer. He
shows the students various animal
pelts and encourages them to iden-
tify which animal they belong to.
Once he has their attention, he vis-
its with the students about wildlife
populations, the role hunting plays
in maintaining healthy populations
and why it is important to care for
resources.
“Just like us, animals need
enough food and water in their en-
vironment to survive. If it becomes
crowded, there isn’t enough food to
go around,” Thomsen explains.
Although Thomsen was hired in
August, he spent more than seven
months training before he was re-
cently assigned to Haakon and
northern Jackson counties.
“Each of our officers undergoes
an extensive training program. We
don’t just hire them, give them a
uniform and turn them loose. This
is a position that requires a lot of
training in addition to a solid edu-
cational background,” said Mike
Kintigh, regional supervisor for
western South Dakota.
The duties of a wildlife conserva-
tion officer, Kintigh explained, are
quite diverse; from serving as a law
enforcement officer, helping
landowners solve wildlife depreda-
tion issues, delivering educational
programs, implementing habitat
management programs, conducting
wildlife surveys and keeping up
with on-going training. And, most
often, like Thomsen, officers work
alone.
“When we interview candidates
we look for individuals who demon-
strate self-initiative, perseverance,
confidence and self-awareness. It’s
also important that they exhibit
strong communication skills.
Eighty percent of what they do is
communicate with the public,”
Kintigh said.
Like the work they do, wildlife
conservation officer training runs
the gamut. Shortly after he was
hired, Thomsen was enrolled in a
13-week law enforcement basic
training course at the South
Dakota Law Enforcement Training
Academy in Pierre. Training along-
side police and sheriff recruits,
Thomsen is expected to pass the
same rigorous weekly exams as
other law enforcement officers.
After graduating from the acad-
emy, Thomsen began 16 weeks of
on-duty training with an experi-
enced wildlife conservation officer.
“South Dakota’s training pro-
gram is unique. We were the first
natural resource agency in the na-
tion to adopt this style of training,”
said Andy Alban, law enforcement
administrator for South Dakota
GF&P division of wildlife. “Wildlife
conservation officers play a vital
role by serving as agency spokes-
men and women due in large part
to their spatial distribution across
the state.”
The style of training Alban refer-
enced is focused on utilizing the
stakeholders in each district as a
resource in solving problems and
also providing hands-on experi-
ences to recruits.
“Recruits are expected to learn
from their own first-hand experi-
ences rather than being told what
to do or watching someone else do,”
Alban explained.
Since implementing the experi-
ential learning model in 2005,
Alban said recruit feedback has
been positive. Thomsen would
agree.
“After being in the driver's seat
and making decisions for 16 weeks
with an experienced conservation
officer by my side to give me tips
and guidance, I feel confident in my
abilities now that I'm on my own,”
Thomsen said.
After Thomsen wraps up the
classroom presentations, he's off to
patrol and visit with area landown-
ers.

Five golfers to state
Philip High School qualified all four boys for the state golf meet May 20 and 21
at the Brookings Country Club. Madison Hand qualified for the girls’ state golf
meet to be held simultaneously at the Edge Brook Golf Course also in Brookings.
“We didn’t shoot as well as we had the last two meets leading up to regions, but
the kids shot good enough rounds to qualify them for state golf,” stated Philip
head coach Doug Hauk. “The Region 6 boys field had 16 boys who could qualify
and the girls had 15 slots to qualify for. The boys shot good enough to get them
to the state meet but placed fourth as a team behind Newell, Wall, and White
River. The teams ahead of us had one or two individuals who shot really low
rounds to put them ahead of us as a team, but only had one or two golfers make
it to state as the Philip boys all shot low enough to make it to state. Madison shot
a great round after a shaky start to the day to place third individually, back four
stokes from the winner. Peyton DeJong and Ashton Reedy did not make the cut
for state, but Ashton played her best round of the year at Hart Ranch. The heat
and wind made it tough of younger golfers, with the golf course set up with super
tough pin placements on the greens.” Shown, back row, from left: Avery Johnson,

OId Business:
Council discussed the schedule for com-
pleting the lift station wet well rehabilita-
tion. The City appropriated $25,000.00
for the relining of the wet well in 2013, but
did not budget for the design of the im-
provement. The recently approved engi-
neering agreement with SPN & Assoc.
includes an estimate of $6,500 for the
design of the improvement. Council was
questioned if they would like to pursue
the design in 2013 utilizing the
$25,000.00 already appropriated. Would
we then appropriate funding in the 2014
budget for the bidding and construction?
Council Member Larson questioned if a
portion of the design fees have been paid
to SPN & Assoc. for their initial review of
the wet well. FO Van Lint stated that she
would have to look into this further as she
does not have the information available
at this time. (As a matter of record - upon
Christmas. Fosheim made a motion, sec-
ond by Gillaspie to accept their offer.

REGULAR MEETING
MAY 6, 2013
A regular meeting of the Philip City Coun-
cil was held on Monday, May 6, 2013, at
7:00 p.m. in the Community Room of the
Haakon Co. Courthouse. Present were
Mayor Michael Vetter, Finance Officer
Monna Van Lint, Council Members Greg
Arthur, Jennifer Henrie, Jason Harry,
Marty Gartner, Trisha Larson, and Marion
Matt. Also present were Deputy Finance
Officer Brittany Smith, Public Works Di-
rector Matt Reckling, Police Officer David
Butler, Street/ Sewer Supt. Rick Coyle,
Charles Allen, Del Bartels with the Pio-
neer Review; and later, Bob McDaniel,
Emily Kroetch, Carol Schofield, Jim Lut-
ter with Valley Spraying Service, Jay
Baxter with CHS, Ìnc. DBA Midwest Co-
operatives, Lou Ann Reckling, Amanda
Nelson, J.J. Walker, Kent Buchholz, and
City Attorney Gay Tollefson.
Absent: None
Motion was made by Harry, seconded by
Arthur to approve the agenda as pre-
sented. Motion carried.
Motion was made by Arthur, seconded by
Gartner to approve the minutes of the
last two meetings as published in the Pi-
firmed his agreement, but questioned
how the amounts of water use would be
accounted for and how it would be billed,
i.e. install a meter on the hydrant?
FO Van Lint advised the Council that
again this month, the airport water usage
has increased. Ìt went from no usage or
minimal usage up to 5,000 gallons of use
in March and another 3,000 gallons was
metered last month.
PWD Reckling then reported that they re-
cently identified that the hydrant pad lock
they had installed has being illegally re-
moved. (Ìt was cut.)
Mayor Vetter then questioned when Mr.
Lutter would like to have water access as
well as who would be responsible from
any potential water loss? He gave the ex-
ample of the water hydrant being left on.
Mr. Lutter stated that he would appreci-
ate water by this Wednesday and until
the hoses and pipe can be installed, he
would be willing to haul the tanks over to
the north side of the fence by the airport
lounge. He could access the hydrant
from there with a hose and in turn, it
would alleviate having to drive his truck
and tanks on the taxiway and apron. He
also noted that he would be willing to pro-
vide the hoses until the City installs an-
other hydrant by the orange hangar.
Following a lengthy discussion, motion
was made by Matt, seconded by Henrie
to authorize water access to the licensed
commercial aerial applicator sprayers at
the airport through the hydrant by the air-
port lounge. A meter will be installed on
the hydrant and the sprayers will be
billed at the City's current water rate of
$5.00 per 1,000 gallons of water. Motion
carried.
The City will pursue the installation of the
two inch water line and hydrant by the or-
ange hangar once the funds can be ap-
propriated.
The tampering of the pad lock on the air-
port's hydrant was discussed in further
detail.
Mayor Vetter and FO Van Lint both
stressed that tampering with rural water
services and airport property is a federal
offense.
Motion was then made by Gartner, sec-
onded by Matt to pursue the installation
of some type of security at the airport.
Motion carried.
Mayor, Council and those in attendance
thanked Mr. Lutter as he left the meeting
at this time.
Council was advised that Waste Connec-
tions of S.D., Ìnc., DBA Walker Refuse's
had requested amendments to the City's
Solid Waste Disposal Contract. City At-
torney Tollefson reviewed their requests
and provided her legal opinion that; the
contract followed the bid award and
specifications and in turn, the contract
was not up for negotiation with the ex-
ception of a correction to their legal busi-
ness name. Since that time, Waste
Connections has signed the contract and
will be taking over residential garbage
collection on June 1, 2013.
Council Member Gartner questioned if
they will be renting or selling the 90 gal-
lon garbage totes. DFO Smith advised
that according to their local representa-
tive, Seth Green, they will be selling used
totes for $40.00 each. Ìf anyone is inter-
ested, they are to contact Mr. Green di-
rectly.
With the completion of all of the old busi-
ness on the agenda, a motion was made
by Arthur, seconded by Harry to adjourn
as the currently seated Council. Motion
carried.
New Business:
Motion was then made by Matt, sec-
onded by Henrie to reconvene as the
new Council for 2013-2014. Motion car-
ried.
Certificates of Election were presented to
Council Members Greg Arthur in Ward Ì
and Marion Matt in Ward ÌÌ. Both mem-
bers filed petitions for a two-year terms
with no opposition.
Mayor Vetter's then presented his ap-
pointment of Jennifer Henrie, incumbent,
to fill the vacated Council position in
Ward ÌÌÌ for a two-year term.
Oaths of Office were then taken by
Council Members Greg Arthur, Marion
Matt, and Jennifer Henrie.
Mayor Vetter then opened the floor for
nominations for Council President and
Vice President for 2013/2014.
Motion was made by Matt, seconded by
Gartner to nominate to Greg Arthur the
position of Council President. Motion car-
ried.
Motion was then made by Matt, sec-
onded by Harry that nominations cease
and a unanimous ballot be cast for Greg
Arthur. Motion carried.
Motion was then made by Arthur, sec-
onded by Henrie to nominate Marion
Matt to the position of Council Vice Pres-
ident for 2013/2014.
Motion was made by Henrie, seconded
by Harry that nominations cease and a
unanimous ballot be cast to elect Marion
Matt as Council Vice President. Motion
carried.

review of the budget for 2013 - no fees
have been assessed to date by SPN for
the inspection of the wet well.)
Mayor Vetter commented and Council
Member Arthur agreed that since the City
appropriated funds for the wet well re-
pairs in 2013, the design should move
forward this year.
Following discussion, motion was made
by Matt, seconded by Arthur to authorize
SPN & Assoc. to complete the design of
the lift station wet well rehabilitation in
2013 with the bidding and construction
taking place in 2014. Motion carried with
all members voting aye.
Motion was made by Arthur, seconded by
Harry to approve the second reading of
Ordinance #2013-03, Repealing Chapter
5, Section 5-101 through 5-222 and Es-
tablishing Chapter 5, Sections 5-000
through 5-208 of the Revised Ordi-
nances of the City of Philip, South
Dakota. (The ordinance was published in
its entirety on April 11, 2013, following the
first reading.) Motion carried unani-
mously.
Council was updated on providing water
access for the commercial aerial
sprayers and single engine air tankers
(SEAT) planes at the City's Municipal Air-
port.
PWD Reckling stated that he was re-
ferred to Pat Bootz regarding the airport
being a SEAT location, but has not been
able to get in contact with him at this
time. Ìt was noted that there are no FAA
permitting requirements to become a
SEAT location, but water access would
be a major benefit.
FO Van Lint went on to report that she
has also visited with Randy Yost with
Randy's Spray Service regarding the
water access request for commercial
sprayers. Mr. Yost advised her that he is
in favor of the City providing water ac-
cess to the sprayers at the airport and
stated that he even pays the water bill
from April thru October of each year at
some of the airports that he flies out of.
She also mentioned the increase in aer-
ial spray fee proposal of $2,500 for the
first year sprayers and then a reduction
in following years that was previously dis-
cussed in a prior Council meeting with
Mr. Yost. He noted that he would be in
favor of the proposal as it would be a fair
way to recuperate the City's expenses in-
curred in making the water improve-
ments. He also suggested that the City
may want to consider installing a jet fuel
tank in the future as a majority of the aer-
ial applicator planes are upgrading to jet
fuel.
She has also contacted the City's Airport
Engineer, Rod Senn with KLJ, Ìnc., who
had provided the contact information for
the SEAT operations. Ìn addition, Jake
Fitzgerald, West River/Lyman-Jones
(WR/L-J) Rural Water Manager, has con-
firmed that the City would be able to up-
grade the airport's service line and
provide water to the aerial applicators.
Mayor Vetter, who is also the local fore-
man for WR/L-J, was questioned if their
service line to the airport meter pit would
have to be re-routed or if another line
could be run from the meter pit. Ìt was
noted that the optimal location for an-
other hydrant at the airport would be by
the orange hangar so that sprayers
would not have to utilize the concrete
aprons or taxi ways when obtaining
water.
Vetter stated that the airport currently has
a one and one-half inch service line that
could be upgraded to a two inch line at
the meter pit. The expense to run the two
inch line from the pit to the orange
hangar area is estimated at $2.00 per
foot plus any boring, which is estimated
at $15.00 per foot.
PWD Reckling noted that he would pre-
fer to run the water line to the east to
avoid the underground electrical wiring.
At this point, he is unsure how many feet
of water line this would require.
Ìt was noted that the City did not appro-
priate for this expense in 2013 and ques-
tioned how they should proceed with the
request.
Jim Lutter with Valley Spraying Service
addressed the Council stressing that
water access at the airport for the
sprayers would be a great benefit and
improvement to the airport. He sug-
gested the possibility of running a garden
hose from the current hydrant over to the
orange hanger which he estimated at ap-
proximately 800 feet. He noted that he al-
ready has a spraying contract that will
require 50,000 gallons of water. This
would require at least 50 trips into Philip
just to obtain the water. He also noted
that, like Mr. Yost, he is more than willing
to pay for the water use at the airport or
a deposit on the water. He would just like
to be able to access water without having
to drive to Philip.
Mayor Vetter noted that the water usage
costs would follow that of the current city
water rates of $5.00 per 1,000 gallons
(.005 cents per gallon). As for additional
deposits or fees, that would have to be
determined after further review.
Council Member Matt went on to ques-
tion how much water flow is needed to fill
their tanks. Mr. Lutter stated that three
gallons per minute is satisfactory and five
gallons per minute is excellent. He also
noted that the tanks have a check valve
on them and only clean water goes into
the tanks. They also have a float in them
that stops before the water would back
up.
Council Member Matt questioned if they
could use black pipe to run the water
from the hydrant to the orange hangar
area. Mr. Lutter stated that a portion of
black pipe could be utilized as they need
to insure that whatever hose/piping they
utilize will withstand the weight of the air-
planes. For instance, utilize approxi-
mately 300 feet of garden hose from the
hydrant to the SRE building and then
black pipe from there to the orange
hangar.
Mayor Vetter questioned PWD Reckling
if he would be comfortable with this solu-
tion for the time being. Reckling con-

both the project and construction status
updates for the Medium Ìntensity Run-

by Rod Senn, Airport Engineer with Kadr-
mas, Lee and Jackson (KLJ).
Council reviewed the Rubble Site inspec-
tion report completed by the SD Dept. of
Environment and Natural Resource on
Mar. 19, 2013. The report indicates that
overall, the site is within acceptable pa-
rameters of our permit and in good con-
dition with the exception of a minimal
amount of unauthorized wastes in the
burial pit.
Mayor and Council thanked the City per-
sonnel for an excellent job at maintaining
the rubble site.
Motion was made by Gartner, seconded
by Harry to approve the new plat of East

The previously discussed road mainte-
nance agreement between CHS, Ìnc.
and the City of Philip will be developed
by the City's Attorney and presented for
the Council's approval in the near future.
Council went on to review CHS's building
and flood plain development permits for
the following: fertilizer plant and con-
veyor, access roads, water and sewer
connections.
Motion was made by Matt, seconded by
Gartner to approve CHS's permits as
presented above. Motion carried. (Per-
mits are on file in the Finance Office for
the public's review.)
Mayor, Council & those in attendance
thanked Mr. Baxter as he left the meeting
at this time.
Lou Ann Reckling then addressed the
Council, stating that "we have a problem
with a gentleman raising dogs¨ in ken-
nels. The concern is that they bark con-
tinuously during all hours of the day and
night when the owner is not home. Ìn ad-
dition, there is an unhealthy stench that
comes from the property as the dog's
fecal matter is not being disposed of
properly or at all in some instances. She
stated that neighbors have attempted to
make efforts to correct the problem di-
rectly with the property owner, but have
been unsuccessful. They felt that going
directly to the Mayor and City Council
was the only option remaining. She
stated that she lives in the neighborhood,
but referred further comments and con-
cerns to J.J. Walker.
J.J. Walker went onto state that he and
his significant other, Christine Andrus,
have been dealing with this issue for the
past two years and even went to the ex-
treme of building a fence to keep the
dogs from defecating in their yard. Over
the course of the last few years, they
have attempted the peaceful and social
approach, but after awhile, the problem
reoccurs. For example, when the neigh-
bors raise concerns or involve the police
department, the dogs will be removed
from the kennels for a couple of weeks,
but then they return.
Mr. Walker did report that he has seen
between six and eight dogs in the ken-
nels on numerous occasions. He also re-
ported that at one time, a total of
twenty-four dogs and puppies were in the
kennels.
Mr. Walker also stated that, like Lou Ann,
they did not want to have to involve the
City, but they are at a loss. They have re-
ported the barking and stench to the local
police department on different occasions,
but nothing has been resolved. He also
referenced the City Ordinances that deal
with animals, more specifically that of
#15-508(a), disturbing the peace and
that one of the ramifications contained
within that ordinance does allow the City
to impound or remove the animals.
Mayor Vetter questioned if the Police
Dept. has issued tickets to offending cit-
izens for disturbing the peace complaints
and if not, why? Ìn addition, are all of the
calls and complaints documented?
Officer Butler stated that no tickets have
been issued at this time, but he is aware
of Chief Graham contacting and visiting
with the property owner in question. He
also noted that all calls and complaints
received in the Police Dept. are docu-
mented.
Mayor Vetter stressed that if we have an
ordinance in place, we need to enforce it
otherwise there is no point. He stated
that if we don't get strict and issue tick-
ets, the problem will not go away.
Ms. Reckling went on to question the
health aspects of not properly taking care
of the dog feces and questioned if the
City has ordinances that also addresses
that concern.
Ìt was noted the City has other ordi-
nances in place that would address this
and will have to be researched further.
Mayor Vetter requested the Police Dept.
start issuing tickets for these types of
complaints. He reminded the Council
that this is not the first complaint in the
last year that the City has received re-
garding dogs.
Ìt was noted that prior complaints were
regarding barking dogs and the amount
of dogs permitted per household. The
City looked into license procedures for
dogs, but not kennel ordinances.
Council Member Henrie questioned if the
City allows breeding dogs or if we have
a kennel ordinance. Council Member
Larson also mentioned if this would fall
under a humane policy.
Mayor Vetter requested the Finance Of-
fice to begin research on kennel ordi-
nances for the Council's consideration in
the future.
Bob McDaniel questioned what the
penalties for a violation of this sort would
be. He was advised that offenders would
be fined per violation as outlined in the
City's fines and fee schedule. A copy of
the schedule is on file in the Finance of-
fice.
City Attorney Tollefson stated that she
has not researched this matter in detail,
but would suggest the best option for the
City may be to enforce the impounding
provision outlined in City Ordinance #15-
508(b).
Further discussion was held and by gen-
eral consensus of the Council, the Police
Dept. was directed to issue tickets the
next time a complaint is received. Ìt was
stressed that the property owners need
to call the Police Dept. every time they

time extending his thanks to the Council.
Philip Trails Project:
The Recreational Trails Program (RTP)
grant application has been submitted
and received by the SD Game Fish and
Parks. The letters of intent to enter into
easements for the trails were also ob-
tained and submitted with the applica-
tion. An on-site review of the project will
be scheduled in the near future.
The Transportation Alternative Program
(TAP) grant's first step has been com-
pleted by submitting a letter of intent to
apply for funding. The SD DOT has con-
firmed that they will also be scheduling
an on-site review of the project prior to
the submission of an entire application
from the City.
Council Member Larson advised that an-
other community trails meeting will be
held on May 8th at 7:00 p.m. at the am-
bulance building.
Departmental Reports:
The monthly Police Dept. report was pre-
sented and reviewed with Officer Butler.
The quarterly Street Dept. report was re-
viewed with Street/Sewer Supt. Rick
Coyle.
PWD Reckling advised the Council that
he has received numerous inquiries
about the City's concrete stock pile at the
south shop and questioned if the City
wants to sell it or should he give it away.
He had originally offered it to interested
persons at no cost, but stipulated that it
would have to be self-loaded and hauled.
No one has taken him up on that offer as
they would prefer the City load the
trucks.
Council Member Arthur asked if the City
needs any additional concrete at Lake
Waggoner. PWD Reckling confirmed that
there is more than enough in the stock
pile.
Ìt was noted that the City should not load
the concrete unless private individuals
are paying a fee in order to recuperate
some of the City's costs in machine and
man hours that it takes to load out, as
well as we would be taking the risk of
damage to the City's equipment.
City Attorney Tollefson recommended
that the City require the purchaser sign a
waiver of liability in the event that their
own private equipment is damaged dur-
ing the loading of the concrete.
PWD Reckling also stated that, if the
Council is going to allow the City to load
the concrete, he would recommend this
be done at City personnel's discretion.
He does not want to be in the middle of
something and get called out to load con-
crete.
Following discussion, motion was made
by Matt, seconded by Gartner to approve
selling the concrete from the stock pile at
$50.00 per load. Loading will be at the
City's convenience. This is contingent
upon receiving a waiver of liability from
those purchasing the concrete. Motion
carried.
Council Member Arthur also questioned
when City personnel are planning to fill
in the potholes. He stressed that he
would like to have this done properly with
the milling out of the holes before filling
them with hot or cold mix.
PWD Reckling advised that he is waiting
for fresh cold mix from Hills Material Co.
and then questioned what the Council
would like done with those on E. Pine St.
and Wray Ave. as it is scheduled for an
overlay this summer.
By general consensus, the Council rec-
ommended that they only do a temporary
fix on the big holes since they will be re-
paired during the overlay.
The swimming pool report was reviewed.
Ìt was reported that the Philip High
School Ìndustrial Arts class is almost fin-
ished building the sidewalk railing for the
west side of the swimming pool sidewalk.
Once it is complete, the City personnel
will be painting and installing the railing.
Motion was made by Arthur, seconded by
Harry to approve the following 2013 pool

tion. The Health/Rec. Committee is fur-
ther authorized to hire additional

The Mayor, Council and those in atten-
dance thanked Ms. Reckling and Mr.
Walker as they left the meeting at this
time.
Council went onto review the tabled ac-
cess road permit presented by Dale Mor-
rison with D&T Auto Parts.
FO Van Lint advised that Dean Van-
DeWiele with the SD Dept. of Trans-
portation (DOT) has confirmed that the
State will be sending out staff to research
the documents that FO Van Lint located
as well as to determine if anything was
missed during her research of the
drainage area. The State's Right-of-Way
department is planning to start the re-
search around May 16th which will then
be referred to the State's Legal Depart-
ment. They are estimating that a re-
sponse from the State will not be
available until the end of May at the ear-
liest. She noted that concerns have been
voiced for not only the drainage area on
Morrison's property, but other properties
in the area.
Mr. VanDeWiele will also be in Philip on
Thursday to review the area in concern
with FO Van Lint.
Council Member Arthur also reported that
he has visited with Mr. Morrison and Mor-
rison understands that the State is still
working on researching the area.
No action was taken on Mr. Morrison's
permit and it will remain tabled until such
time as the State of S.D. makes com-
ment on the issue.
Wood/Walden Ave. Utility and Street Ìm-
prov. Project:
Council reviewed construction updates
for the project as prepared by the City's
Engineer Jeff McCormick with SPN &
Assoc.
FO Van Lint advised the Council and au-
dience that access to N. Wood Ave. from
Walden Ave. and Hone St. will be closed
starting tomorrow, Tuesday, May 7th. Ìt
was noted that Street/Sewer Supt. Coyle
recently bladed the gravel roads in the
area as well as Rosebud Concrete has
finished the temporary access road from
Hone St. to Walden Ave. Additional
speed limit and construction signs were
also installed today.
Street/Sewer Supt. Coyle recommended
that residents contact the City Office
when the gravel roads need bladed
and/or if there is concern with dust as
they may be able to water down the
roads/alleys.
Motion was made by Matt, seconded by
Harry to authorize FO Van Lint to begin
the drawdown process for the State Re-
volving Loan Funds for the eligible por-
tions of sanitary and storm sewer
construction fees. Motion carried.
Motion was made by Harry, seconded by
Gartner to approve Rosebud Concrete,
Ìnc.'s pay request #01 in the amount of
$66,220.17 contingent upon receipt of all
appropriate paperwork required for the
funding agency's approval through the
SRF program. Motion carried with all
members voting aye.
Council reviewed the First Lutheran
Church's water line repairs from the main
to the curb stop. During construction, this
line was reported as being lead, which is
against state law and city ordinances.
With this line being the City's responsibil-
ity, the City had the line replaced with a
"k" copper water line, but during the re-
placement process, a portion of the
Church's sidewalk was required to be re-
moved. According to the City's Engineer,
a four foot by five foot section of sidewalk
that was not originally scheduled to be
replaced was removed and it is esti-
mated to cost $111.00 to replace said
portion.
Council was asked how they will be as-
sessing that portion of sidewalk back to
the church. Ìt was noted that they had ini-
tially approved assessing only 40% of
the costs back to the property owners
and with this replacement being at the
City's directive would they extend the
policy to the Church for this portion?
Mayor Vetter stated that this portion of
concrete would not have been removed
had it not been the City's service line
being lead.
Council Member Arthur agreed with Vet-
ter and recommended the City incur
100% of the costs to replace that portion
of concrete that was removed.
Following, a motion was made by Arthur,
seconded by Matt to approve the City
paying 100% of the replacement costs
for the sidewalk portion that was re-
moved during the replacement of the
First Lutheran Church's service line from
the main to curb stop that is owned and
maintained by the City. Motion carried.
Council went on to review the requested
cost estimates for the asphalt overlay at
the west intersection of Hone St. and N.
Wood Ave. According to Mr. McCormick,
with SPN & Assoc., this would include an
area of 130 feet by 25 feet or approxi-
mately 30 ton of asphalt at the contract
unit price of $107.75 per ton for a total
estimated cost of $3,300.
PWD Reckling noted that McCormick
has observed that four locations in this
area have wide cracks that span the
pavement. He recommends that they be
milled prior to the overlay. Reckling
stated that the milling can be done by the
City personnel as the contract does not
include any milling. Ìn addition, he will be
contacting the contractor's asphalt
provider to fill in the areas.
FO Van Lint was questioned if the City's
budget will endure this expense. She
stated that the street department's street
repair budget would be the only option,
but reminded everyone that it is still early
in the year.

THANK YOUS
The family of Pauline Schofield
would like to express their sin-
cere gratitude to all those who
helped in any way during the
loss of our loved one. Your acts of
kindness, comforting words, gifts
of food, flowers, and memorial
contributions were truly appreci-
ated by the family.
Thank you to Pastor Tel
Saucerman for his prayers and
support and for the wonderful job
he did delivering service, to Mike
Seager and Tristen Schofield for
helping with the sound system
and music, to the Lutheran
Church Women for helping with
the meal, to Chaney Schofield for
the beautiful job she did with the
special flower arrangements, to
the Midland School for the use of
the auditorium, and to the grand-
children and great-grandchildren
for any part you played in mak-
ing the service special and per-
sonable for Grandma Pauline.
To the Rush Funeral Home:
Jack, Gayle, DJ and Margaret –
A heartfelt thank you for all you
have done for the family in help-
ing us through a very difficult
time, once again. How blessed
we are to have you in our commu-
nity. You combine professional-
ism and efficiency with kindness
and compassion confirming that
this is not just a business, but
that you deeply care about the
families you work with. There are
no words to express how much
we appreciate you.
Thank you to the doctors,
nurses and staff at the Kadoka
and Philip nursing homes and
the Philip hospital/clinic for the
care given and acts of kindness
shown to our mother during the
years she was a resident. Thank
you to the family members and
friends who were there for us
during the difficult final days be-
fore our mother was called home,
whether you were there physi-
cally or holding us up in prayer
from miles away, we felt your
love and support and so did
Mom.
May she now rest in peace and
live forever in the hearts of those
who knew and loved her.

this sad time.
This includes special thanks to
the entire staff at Philip Health
Services, dear friends, col-
leagues, neighbors, and all who
have been touched by her pres-
ence and those who have
touched her.
June was a caring and loving
wife, mother, nurse and friend. It
is comforting to know how she in-
fluenced so many lives and how
much she will be missed by all
who knew her.
Thank you all for honoring her
life – each in your own way.
Warmest regards,
The family of June Wanczyk
I wish to thank all you wonder-
