Dillon and Courtney Kjerstad have begun employ-
ment in professional careers in Philip. Dillon is the
new agricultural loan officer with First National
Bank, and Courtney is the new pharmacist at Zeeb
“We decided to raise our family in a small town
that has all the great things to offer like the commu-
nities we each grew up in,” said Courtney, who grew
up in Gettysburg.
“In Philip we saw good opportunities to live and
raise a family,” ” said Dillon, who grew up in Wall.
“It is a top priority for us to surround ourselves with
good people and be part of a community that shares
the same values as us.” It was good we were able to
get away for a short time and live in a city, so we
could realize how important these things are.”
Dillon started with the bank August 26, while
Courtney began working for the pharmacy Septem-
ber 9. They bring with them their three-month-old
son, Kaden.
Courtney is a 2005 graduate from Gettysburg High
School. She earned her doctor of pharmacy degree
from South Dakota State University in 2011. Dillon
is a 2005 graduate from Wall High School. He earned
his bachelor of science in economics and agriculture
business from SDSU, and his masters in business ad-
ministration from the University of South Dakota.
“We’re very excited to have Dillon join the First Na-
tional Bank lending team,” said Ray Smith, president
of FNB. “He comes to us with experience in ag lend-
ing, as well as growing up on a ranch north of Quinn.
We invite everyone to stop in the bank and meet Dil-
“We are very pleased to welcome Courtney, Dillon
and their new son, Kaden, to our community. It’s
wonderful to see a young couple who have shown a
positive commitment to live and prosper in small town
South Dakota,” said Milo Zeeb, owner of Zeeb Phar-
macy. “Courtney is presently working part time as a
pharmacist at Zeeb Pharmacy, and plans are to even-
tually work full time as her schedule allows. We en-
courage everyone to stop in and welcome her to our
The two met in Brookings while attending college
at SDSU. Dillon’s first career position was as an ag
lender for Wells Fargo Bank in Madison, and later
transferred to Arizona. Courtney began her career
working for CVS pharmacy and then Safeway phar-
macy in Scottsdale, Ariz.
“I worked in a large retail pharmacy. However, I
like the smaller community pharmacy, where you get
to know the people in town, and have personal rela-
tionships with your customers,” said Courtney.
“I enjoy my job very much,” said Dillon. “All the peo-
ple I work with are great, and all our bank customers
are outstanding. Even though Philip is a small town,
it has lots to offer. Everyone we’ve met has been very
All the employees have been helpful and have a
great work ethic, said Courtney. The customers she
has met so far have been very welcoming and she
looks forward to meeting the rest.
Dillon likes to team rope, golf, fish and hunt. He
said the best thing in their move is the people in the
community, “because they have gone out of their way
to welcome us and make us feel at home.”
Courtney also likes to golf. She enjoys reading, boat-
ing, exercising and being outdoors. She said the best
thing with her new job is the personal relationships
the employees have with the customers.
Speaking for Kaden, Courtney said that his favorite
thing is his new babysitter, Cindy.

Area producers gathered at the
Cottonwood Range and Livestock
Field Station, September 7, for
Tri-County Ag Day and an open
house of the station’s newest facil-
Barry Dunn, dean of the College
of Agriculture and Biological sci-
ences at South Dakota State Uni-
versity, welcomed the attendees to
the event and conducted the open
house of the new office/labora-
tory/storage building.
Dunn said that as more native
prairie has been planted to crops,
it has become more important to
manage the grasslands that re-
main. That means that research
at the Cottonwood station, as well
as other such stations, becomes
more important to help manage
those grasslands.
With that in mind the univer-
sity chose to invest money from
grants and private donations to-
ward the new facility. Dunn
stated that very few stations are
dedicated to the research of short
grass prairie and by reinvesting in
Cottonwood, everyone would ben-
efit, not only this generation, but
the next.
A short travel by bus to a study
sight south of the headquarters al-
lowed visitors to see how the study
begun in 1942 has affected the na-
tive grasses.
Sandy Smart, range science pro-
fessor spoke about the long-term
project. Smart stated that the
land was divided into three graz-
ing strategies in 1942; low,
medium and high density grazing.
The land contained the same
plants at that time. Over the years
the lightly grazed area began to
show more western wheat and
green needle grasses, the heavy
grazed area became short grasses
while the medium grazed pastures
were a mixture of the two types of

Though the Haakon School Dis-
trict budgets quite generously, ac-
cording to business manager
Britni Ross, if everything goes
pessimistically then $100,653 may
come out of reserves during the
2013-2014 fiscal year.
The board of education passed
the proposed budget during its
Monday, September 16 meeting.
The five categories of general
fund – $2,110,186, capital outlay –
$520,332, special education –
$377,916, pensions – $78,055, and
food service – $94,800 add up to
$3,181,289 projected expenses.
Projected revenues for all five cat-
egories total $2,681,030.
Ross stated that since she took
the position in August of 2008, the
reserves have not been required,
though they were anticipated to
be. Those reserves currently total
Superintendent Keven More-
hart reported that this year there
are 297 students enrolled in the
district. An average of $5,200 per
student comes in for each student.
“Everybody seems to forget the
number of students pays the
bills,” said Morehart. He said that
four or five years down the road,
maybe sooner, those numbers may
be going down. “Every year I kind
of dread it, but we seem to get
more kids from surrounding
areas,” he said.
Ross added that of those 297
students, only 49 are currently
registered for the free and reduced
meal program. That is 16 percent,
compared with many previous
years of a percentage in the high
30s or low 40s. When 40 percent of
the students are on the program,
then the district is looked at for
grant monies. Ross said that
many families often wait until
well into the school year to update
their applications.
In other business, the board ap-
proved applying through the
South Dakota High School Activi-
ties Association to join a coopera-
tive with Wall and Kadoka for
girls’ gymnastics. It will be the re-
sponsibility of the parents to
transport their students to Wall
for practices and to meets. The
Haakon School District will not
incur any expenses in joining this
extra-curricular activity co-op.
Personnel action included ap-
proving Tayta West as the junior
high girls’ basketball coach, Kory
Foss as an assistant football
coach, and Bob Fugate as the head
boys’ basketball coach.
Eight high school students will
be participating in the School to
Work program this semester.
They will do hands-on learning
while working in fields that they
are contemplating as careers.
Some will be assisting school in-
structors, while others will be
working at local businesses for ap-
proximately an hour per school
The district has almost doubled
its property/liability insurance
coverage by entering into a protec-
tive trust agreement with Associ-
ated School Boards of South
Dakota. The district had barely
made the agreement when the re-
cent hailstorm hit. Damages are
still being tallied.
In Cory Lambley’s secondary
principal’s report, he stated that
there are 51 students in junior
high and 97 in high school. Home-
coming week was fun and success-
ful. There are very few discipline
problems so far. Fall athletics are
in full swing.
Morehart’s superintendent’s re-
port gave 149 students in kinder-
garten through sixth grade. Fire
drills have already taken place.
The South Dakota Highway Pa-
trol held self defense tactics train-
ing in the old weight room. Early
release has begun.
The next regular meeting of the
Haakon School District 27-1
Board of Education will be at 7:00
p.m., Monday, October 14, in room
A-1 of the Philip High School.
School board sets
$3 million budget
By 1969, the focus changed to
stocking rates so that those condi-
tions could be maintained.
Dunn said that producers have
consistently managed their land
to get the most pounds of animal
off the land, by utilizing heavy
grazing; making more money per
animal. Dunn stated he, and oth-
ers, had been taught to keep the
land in better condition and the
producer would make more money
over time. But, he said, that is not
what an efficiency study showed.
The study showed the validity of
the heavy grazing and why people
do it, but he said that doesn’t
mean producers have to.
Smart also spoke about the Bad
River watershed project he has
worked with. He noted that the
sediment that is being dumped
into Lake Sharp where the Bad
River empties into the Missouri
River is not due to water coming
off short grass rangeland, but
from gullies. Pat Johnson, range
science professor, agreed that the
low graze provides more water to
run off, but it does not take the
soil with it.
Modern Woodmen fundraiser
for Terry Schofield a success
Modern Woodmen of America members in Philip recently helped raise money for Terry Schofield by holding a
supper, auction and dance. The August 17 event raised $38,429.50, which includes $2,500 matched by Modern
Woodmen’s home office through the organization’s matching fund program. The money will be used for medical
expenses. The Matching fund program offers Modern Woodmen members nationwide the chance to show their
support for a community cause, organization or individual in need by holding fundraisers. These fundraising proj-
ects contribute $9 million to community needs nationwide each year. “The community truly came together to sup-
port a local need, “ said Don Haynes, local Modern Woodmen chapter activities coordinator. “That support is
what it’s all about.” Pictured are, from left Haynes, Terry Schofield, and Vince Bruce and Lura Kirkpatrick who
both helped organize the event.

Lookin’ Around by Syd Iwan
Our observations of the world
around us can be informative,
amusing, and sometimes confus-
ing. Let’s take confusing first.
That applied this week when I
was sitting on the deck and a
hummingbird came by. It didn’t
seem a bit worried about me being
only three feet away and went
happily on with its business of
sipping nectar from four large pot-
ted lantana flowers. This specie of
birds is extremely hyperactive
and moves their wings so fast that
they are just a blur. They are also
one of the very smallest of birds.
Due to their tiny size and quick
movements, they can easily be
overlooked or just mistaken for a
big insect. As a result, it took me
a few moments to realize what I
was seeing, after which I looked
more closely.
In defense of my slowness to
recognize what I was seeing, let
me explain that I’ve seen very few
hummingbirds in my life. There
was one I glimpsed briefly at the
ranch many years ago, and then
last year I saw one several times
at a little distance. Both sightings
were short-lived affairs because
these critters tend to flit in and
away so fast that you can’t really
get a very good look at them. This
time around, I had the opportu-
nity to actually see what my fly-
ing friend looked like, for a
change, and to study its behavior.
I’ve been a bird watcher for many
years so I enjoyed the encounter.
This was all fine and well until
shortly thereafter when I saw an-
other creature hovering around
the same plants. “Ah, the hum-
mingbird is back,” I told myself.
“Wait, it seems smaller than the
first one.” I looked more closely,
and that’s when confusion set in.
This critter had a pointed ab-
domen with stripes. Next I no-
ticed that it had little antennae on
its head. “What is going on here?”
I asked myself. “Birds don’t have
antennae.” It was a muddle be-
cause this one had the same kind
of tube thing as the hummingbird
for sucking up nectar. It shortly
flew away and left me scratching
my head.
A bit later I mentioned my en-
counters with these airborne
friends to wife Corinne. “Oh,” she
said. “That was a hummingbird
moth. They act like humming-
birds but they’re moths.” Well,
that was a good enough explana-
tion for what I’d seen, but I did
check up to see if she was telling
me the truth or selling me a bill of
goods. She apparently was cor-
rect. I saw a picture of a hum-
mingbird moth over the Internet,
and it strongly resembled what I’d
Other people have obviously
been similarly confused between
bird and bug because the Internet
had the following: “So you think
you saw a baby hummingbird, but
you just couldn’t explain those an-
tennae. Did you even think maybe
nature gives baby hummingbirds
feathers that mimic antennae to
disguise the vulnerable baby?
Maybe they fall off when they get
to a certain age. NOT!” Confusion
cleared up. These are two sepa-
rate creatures. I could safely go on
to other things.
Now on to observations being
informative. This might apply to
many things, but lately I was re-
minded, as I am every year, that
fall is drawing nigh when I once
again see Sirius, the Dog Star,
(our brightest star) in the night
sky. It is lost from view in May
every year since that is when it
starts going below the western
horizon before the sun does. Then
in mid to late August, there it is
once more in the southeast just a
little before sunrise. For some rea-
son, seeing Sirius again always
signals the end of summer to me
and the beginning of fall. I often
purposely look for it when I know
it is about to reappear. It, addi-
tionally, is the last of seven bright
stars that become visible in late
summer and form what I call the
“circle of lights.” This nifty display
is pleasant to look at all winter.
These seven are all among the fif-
teen brightest stars we can see in
this hemisphere so seeing them in
a relatively small circle is quite a
treat for those of us who enjoy
such things. I definitely am one of
Finally, on observations that
amuse us, we had one of those
this summer on the Fourth of
July. A group of teenagers was
blasting off fireworks in a nearby
parking lot that evening which
was enjoyable. Then one young
fellow rooted around in the trunk
of his car and dug out a bagpipe.
Subsequently, he marched around
the parking lot playing every pa-
triotic song known to man on his
Scottish instrument and finishing
with “Amazing Grace.” Somehow,
this was so out of the ordinary
that a person couldn’t help but
So there you have it. Our obser-
vations of the world around us can
entertain us, make us wiser, and
sometimes confuse us. We may
have to think about what we’ve
seen for awhile to make sense of it
all. Maybe we’ll even come to the
right conclusions. Let’s hope for

Country Praises by Del Bartels
This summer has been a good
one. Most ranchers and farmers
can’t complain about the amount
of rainfall, at least not in compar-
ison to some previous parched
years. The number of days that
broke 100 degrees were not all
that many. Grasshoppers weren’t
a cursed plague. The only real re-
minder from Mother Nature that
she is boss was a story-making
But, already the feel in the air
is hinting at summer’s close. Us-
able sunlight at 5:30 in the morn-
ing is long past. Air conditioners
are sitting idle, comfortably re-
placed by doors left open, at least
the first part of the night. Gardens
are slowing their bounty. Street
projects and roof repairs are hur-
riedly being completed or purpose-
fully being put off until next
The transition toward that ugly
thing we call winter will come in
spurts and sputters. Jackets will
be part of the gear taken to foot-
ball games. Some early thinkers
will be checking tire tread and
anti-freeze percentages. A shovel
will replace the fishing poles in
the truck. Flashlights, dashboard
cell phone chargers, kids’ boots
that fit better than last year’s
boots, unburied ice scrapers, dusty
storm windows leaning in the
garage, stuck chimney flues and
other things will be thought of and
made ready. Then there are those
people who will accept the reality
that winter is coming only after
winter is here.
Remember shoveling thick, wet
snow? Recall touching the inside
of a house window and feeling the
cold from outside? Do your hands
still remember the numbness and
warming sting of being out in the
weather too long? Don’t you love it
when dropped keys hit the icy
pavement and skitter further
under the car? All these and more
are what is a coming once summer
is no more.
We will then look back with
longing to the days of enveloping
heat that caused drowsiness when
you were in the shade or sweat
slithering down your back while in
the sunlight. Funny how sweat is
not the same as the drizzling mist
of a near-freezing night. Pushing
a lawn mower will almost seem to
have been fun. Barbecuing, de-
spite the ancient crumbly bri-
quettes or the empty propane
tanks, will be thought of as great.
Soon baking will be done not only
for the food, but with the added in-
centive of heating up the kitchen.
Which would you prefer – a ham-
burger and iced lemonade in the
sweltering shade of your back
yard, or a hot apple pie in your
kitchen while your snow boots
drip by the door?
All things come to an end. All
things have their beginning. Sum-
mer and winter are no different.
Who knows, maybe I’ll serve ham-
burgers with pie for dessert.
Maybe I’ll check my strings of
Christmas lights on my green
lawn. Maybe I will put a plastic
bug in someone’s pork and beans,
just to remind them of a barbecue.
I don’t suppose unhooking some-
one’s car battery will make them
reminiscent of dead batteries in
good ol’ wintertime?
Summer was fun. So will be
winter. One is always going while
the other is always a-coming.
However bad they might be at the
time, they will eventually be
thought of as the good ol’ days.
It’s a-coming
In a press release from Dakota
Mill and Grain general council
Barton R. Banks, the newly
formed West River Rail Associa-
tion is backing South Dakota’s at-
tempt to have the Canadian
Pacific Railway fulfill its promises
to improve the Dakota, Minnesota
and Eastern rail lines.
Though not a member of the
new WRRA, Cenex Harvest
States – Midwest Cooperative has
similar concerns. “Our goals and
objectives are to ensure that there
is a viable rail service in western
South Dakota,” said Milt Hand-
cock, general manager of CHS-
Midwest Co-op.
The WRRA release stated, “The
West River Rail Association is a
nonprofit corporation whose mem-
bers regularly ship grain, steel,
rock, cement, bentonite and many
other goods and products on the
DM&E rail line between Fort
Pierre and Rapid City and be-
tween Colony, Wyo., and Craw-
ford, Neb.
The DM&E line is the only con-
tinuous rail line that connects
western South Dakota to markets
to the east and is vital to the busi-
ness interests of WRRA members,
as well as hundreds of communi-
ties, businesses and, indeed, the
entire state of South Dakota who
all depend upon the operation of
this line. The WRRA’s purpose is
to support continued and im-
proved rail service and to oppose
any reduction in that service.
The Canadian Pacific Railway,
which purchased the DM&E line
through South Dakota back in
2008, announced last December
that it was entertaining offers for
the sale of the DM&E west of
Tracy, Minn.
The WRRA is concerned that
this sale will occur before the CP
has honored its promises to im-
prove the line in western South
Dakota. When the CP purchased
the line in 2008, nealy half of the
western segment (west of Fort
Pierre) was classified as “excepted
track” defined as substandard line
which is exempted from various
regulations and which will only
support limited, low speed, rail op-
erations due to safety concerns.
As a result of these limitations,
excepted track creates signifi-
cantly higher ton/mile freight
rates which are charged to West
River shippers. In that regard,
and according to information from
the CP itself, nothing has been
done to improve the excepted
track in western South Dakota
since the CP’s purchase of the
DM&E, and West River shippers
are paying the price for it.
The South Dakota Department
of Transportation has filed a peti-
tion with the Surface Transporta-
tion Board seeking to force the CP
to provide verifiable information
about its investment in the
DM&E line and to make up any
shortfall in that promised invest-
As noted by the state’s petition,
the DM&E is critical to hundreds
of businesses and communities in
South Dakota and is the only con-
tinuous track through the state. It
is a life line for much of the freight
moving out of western South
Consistent with our charter, the
WRRA wholeheartedly adopts the
S.D. Department of Transporta-
tion’s position and request for re-
lief. While the CP has filed a
response to the state’s petition, it
is resisting the state’s attempt to
obtain verifiable information
about the CP’s investment and is
adopting the ‘trust me’ approach.
Given the current condition of the
DM&E west of Fort Pierre, the
WRRA remains skeptical of he
CP’s continuing representations.
Letters expressing concern over
the current condition of the line,
freight rates, service and/or the
CP’s improvement of the DM&E
can be sent to the Surface Trans-
portation Board, 395 E. Street,
SW, Washington, DC 20423-0111.
Due to the STB’s particular filing
requirements, any letters coming
from a business or governmental
entity can be forwarded to the
West River Rail Association at
P.O. Box 1552, Rapid City, SD
57709, who will make sure that
the proper filing requirements are
met when the letter is submitted.
All letters should reference ‘STB
Finance Docket 35081.’ ”
Opposition to Canadian Pacific
Railway’s unfulfilled promises
by Wildlife Conservation
Officer Zach Thomsen
Once again this year is showing
that epizootic hemorrhagic dis-
ease (EHD) has not gone away
from our South Dakota deer
herds. Dead deer are starting to
show up in the surrounding area.
EHD is a disease that mainly
affects white-tailed deer. This dis-
ease is caused by a virus that is
spread by a biting midge. The dis-
ease usually affects white-tailed
deer herds in the late summer or
early fall. Most refer to this dis-
ease as blue tongue and, although
they are very similar, they are
slightly different viruses.
As the surrounding area is
showing some signs of EHD, your
local conservation officer would
like a call if someone comes into
contact with sick or dead deer.
The Game Fish and Parks is try-
ing to get a grasp on what areas
are being affected by the disease.
The only way to do this is by get-
ting reports from landowners,
hunters or anyone else who finds
sick or dead deer.
Last year, very few reports got
to the Game and Fish Department
in Haakon County and very few
from Jackson County. The disease
was present and we need to start
recording this information.
In most cases, these deer are lo-
cated near stock dams or any
other water source. EHD strikes
a fever in the animal, which forces
them to lie in areas around water
and constantly drink to try and
beat the fever. Even if the sick an-
imal is not found around a water
source, please still call and report

Wildlife disease to be reported
Craig “Hopper” Weber celebrated his 40th anniversary as an employee
at Scotchman Industries, Inc. He started at the ironworker manufacturing
plant on September 11, 1973. Through the years, he has worked in almost
all the different areas of Scotchman's production plant. He began in the
paint department, moved to wiring of motors and switch boxes, then on to
welding, final assembly and shipping, and finally into the production plan-
ning and inventory control department, where he works today. Weber has
been a valuable asset to Scotchman. He is the third employee to join
Scotchman's 40-year elite club. Shown is Weber, left, being recognized
and honored by Scotchman Industries President Jerry Kroetch.

Who are You Going to Call?
The thought occurred to me the
other day; I wonder if, after
nearly two years since the re-or-
ganization of the Extension Serv-
ice in South Dakota, is the phone
number for the Winner Regional
Extension Center in the phone
book? I hadn’t gotten around to
looking yet this morning when
someone called with a question,
and after that was taken care of,
suggested that we should get our
phone number in the phone book.
He said it wasn’t in the phone
book and had to look in the news-
paper for my news column to find
it (I always thought writing a
weekly news column was a good
idea). As it turns out, the phone
number for the Winner Regional
Extension Center is in both of the
telephone books we are provided
with here in the Winner center.
As apparently some people have
figured out, the key is to look
under “SDSU Extension Regional
Center. I don’t have access to tele-
phone books from other areas of
South Dakota, but I could imag-
ine they would list Regional Ex-
tension Centers in those areas the
same way.
If you are looking online, visit:
perts/ for a complete listing of all
the SDSU Extension Regional
Centers, the County Extension
Offices where the 4-H Advisors
are located, as well as the SDSU
Extension Campus-Based Staff. If
you want to contact the SDSU Ex-
tension Regional Center here in
Winner, call 842-1267.
Watering Trees
Many trees which were just be-
ginning to recover from the 2012
drought are now beginning to suf-
fer from the late summer water
deficit that many areas are expe-
riencing. There are numerous
trees with discolored foliage and
drooping shoots. If trees in areas
that have been low in precipita-
tion, expect to see some dieback
and decline next year if these
trees are not watered soon.
The best time to water your
trees to prepare them for winter,
particularly evergreens, is not
just before freeze-up, but now.
Most trees do best with about 1
inch of precipitation a week at
this time of year so that means a
fair amount of watering.

More than 90 percent of wheat
acres in South Dakota were cov-
ered by Revenue Protection dur-
ing the 2013 crop year. For
producers who plan to enroll 2014
winter wheat acres in crop protec-
tion, insurance and marketing de-
cisions are going to be a bit
different from in the past, said
Matthew Diersen, professor and
South Dakota State University
Extension risk/business manage-
ment specialist.
Diersen said the deadline to
purchase or change winter wheat
coverage is September 30 in South
Dakota. Most wheat is insured in
the state, so the main choice this
time of year is often related to the
yield election level. Producers
have until October 15 to plant
winter wheat with full insurance
The price discovery period
spans from August 15 to Septem-
ber 14 and uses the Kansas City
September 2014 futures price.
"That price has been averaging
sharply lower than the insurance
price from a year ago. The recent
history of projected and harvest
prices are shown in the table,"
Diersen said. "The projected price
determines the base for both yield
protection and revenue protection
Diersen said the volatility in the
futures price has been lower this
year than its five-year average of
0.29 and suggests with lower pre-
mium rates for 2014 that produc-
ers consider increasing the
coverage percentage.
"The lower volatility and lower
price level point to lower insur-
ance premiums compared to last
year. During 2013 most wheat
was insured at the 70 percent
level," he said.
He added that the use of rev-
enue protection means most pro-
ducers have adequate protection
to allow for some pre-harvest
wheat marketing.
"The low volatility levels at the
present time likely make options
strategies inexpensive," he said.
"In the event of higher prices by
harvest, revenue protection cover-
age increases. As producers work
on their marketing plans they
should keep in mind that the in-
surance coverage is not unlimited,
being capped at 200 percent of the
base price," he said. "Covered
sales, buying out-of-the-money
call options, would be advised
when marketing aggressively."
Diersen said producers should
also consider the harvest time
basis and how it lines up with in-
“Winter wheat insurance settles
to the average during July of the
Kansas City September contract,"
he said. "The basis, figured as the
cash price received by farmers in
South Dakota minus the average
futures price in July, has aver-
aged $-0.64 per bushel during the
past five years. Hedges will likely
be most effectively placed using
the September contract and fac-
toring in a similar basis level."

ter 9: Insuring Wheat in South
Dakota of "iGrow Wheat: Best
Management Practices for Wheat
Production," found on iGrow.org.
Insuring winter wheat
The United States Department
of Agriculture’s (USDA) Risk
Management Agency reminds pro-
ducers in Montana, Wyoming,
North Dakota, and South Dakota
that the fall sales closing date is
September 30. Fall sales closing
and cancellation dates are appli-
cable for wheat (in counties with
both a fall and spring sales closing
date), forage production, and rye.
One important change for the
2014 crop year is the option to in-
sure alfalfa and other forage seed
crops via written agreement in
counties without an alfalfa or for-
age seed program. Written agree-
ments must be submitted through
an insurance agent, and requests
for the 2014 crop year must be
signed by September 30, 2013.
Doug Hagel, Billings Regional
Office director, reminds producers
to contact their crop insurance
agent for more information on the
new rules. For more information

agent, go to www.rma.usda.gov/

on the long-term range study at Cottonwood.

Pat Johnson, SDSU range science professor cuts the ribbon on the new fa-
cility at the Cottonwood Range and Livestock Field Station. Dean of Agri-
culture and Biological Sciences Barry Dunn, left, spoke on how the new
facility will aid in research at the station.
Smart said the implementation
of no-till planting has helped de-
crease the sediment buildup. The
sediment buildup at the mouth of
the Bad River has decreased since
the mid-1990s, he said.
Johnson and graduate student
Christi Koehler gave an update on
the patch grazing study.
The study’s main focus is if
patch grazing could be a viable al-
ternative to patch burning for in-
creasing the diversity of plants,
improving livestock production
and wildlife habitat.
Part of the study looked at how
grazing levels affected bird diver-
sity and their nesting habitats.
Johnson said this research could
help in maintaining or increasing
bird species numbers.
Steve Fairbairn, U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service, stated this data
could be valuable to his agency
and they can relay it on to land-
owners who want to conserve and
improve their grassland.
Roger Gates, Extension range
specialist and Pete Bauman Ex-
tension range field specialist dis-
cussed pasture carrying capacity.
Gates said that by knowing
what grasses, their amounts, and
the moisture in the vegetation –
knowing the feed supply – the
landowner can allocate the correct
amount of livestock to the pasture.
To gain some of this knowledge,
the landowner must clip samples
from different areas of the pas-
ture. Sampling different areas is a
must, they said, since vegetation
will vary within the pasture.
They stated that too often a
landowner gets locked into “I
should be able to stock” instead of
listening to the monitoring data.
Gates urged them to listen to the
data instead.
The new frontier for rangeland
monitoring, Gates said, is the
study of microbial profiles. He
said that while this is not readily
accessible to producers, it is com-
ing. He said a Texas study noted
that changes in the range can be
noted in the microbes before they
are noticed in the soil carbons.
Seven different 30 minute ses-
sions included discussions on ge-
netic testing in beef cattle; body
condition scoring as a tool to mon-
itor nutritional status; a look in-
side a rumen and discussion on
it’s microbes; research regarding
nutrition during gestation; sul-
fates in water; Beef Quality As-
surance; and climate and weather
around Cottonwood and the state
of South Dakota

at Somerset Court we enjoyed the
activities of Wii bowling and
Friday, Septber 6, at Somerset
Court Shawn, Sandi and Susan
took several residents to Canyon
Lake Park on the Somerset Court
bus for a picnic. It was not too hot
in the shade as there was a little
breeze. They had a nice time, as
There was a lot of card playing
all afternoon until 3:30 when we
had music with Skeeter playing
guitar and singing. Rex, the man
with the frog hat, also played gui-
tar and sang and Bob Grimm
played the accordion and sang.
Mrs. Skeeter even sang along with
one number. All were in close har-
mony and were most pleasant to
listen to. There was a good crowd
of residents in attendance. They
played a lot of familiar songs.
Thanks, Skeeter and company.
Thanks to our activity directors
for arranging seating, bringing ice
water and parking and returning
our walkers.
Helen Amundson has been in
the hospital and will spend a few
more days recuperation before she
comes back to Somerset Court.
We have a new resident,
Dorothy Wells, who has lived a lot
of places including Spokane,
Wash. I hope you like it here,
We are to remember that next
Monday at Somerset Court is
crazy sock day, Tuesday, hat or
red shirt day, Wednesday, wear
blue, Thursday, necktie day and
Friday, wear green.
Saturday, September 7, 23 resi-
dents signed out of Somerset
Court. Wayne and Gwynn Hansen
took me along to Philip to visit my
old home. They were attending
Wayne’s high school reunion of
the Class of 1957. It was held at
the Bad River Senior Citizen’s
Center. Wayne’s classmates who
attended were Marcia (Baker) and
her husband, Donnie Eymer; Jan-
ice (Thorson) and husband, Bart
Parsons; Connie (Morgan) and her
husband, Bill Parsons; Enid (Han-
cock) Schulz and Bob Knutson and
friend Beth, both of Rapid City.
Others who signed up but didn’t
arrive were Herb and Hazel
Sieler, Marvin and Phyllis (O’Dea)
Coleman and Joanne (Arends)
and her husband, Jerry Stilwell,
Connie Parsons kindly phoned
and said I would be welcome to
come to their dinner. Thank you,
Connie. Since I had planned to
spend the day looking at things in
my old house, I declined. So the
girls at the reunion fixed me a
plate of their delicious salad, rel-
ishes and pie and Wayne and Bob
Knutson drove up to my house
and brought it to me. Thank you
I had a good time, beating on
my two pianos, (one at a time!).
While I was looking at a drawer
full of painting supplies and wa-
tercolor paper, I found that I had
on hand eight reams of onion skin
“second sheets,” from those old
times when we typed with type-
writers. Next, we need to create a
demand for this rare paper! I have
heard that some countries are
buying hand typewriters for their
top-secret documents. That way
they avoid possibility of their in-
formation going on the Web. The
only use I have for this sort of
paper is to cut out “snowflakes” for
Christmas decorations. It is just
the right texture to be crisp and
yet fragile looking.
Thank you to Wayne and
Gwynn for a very pleasant day.
On our way home from Philip
Saturday, we stopped by Cotton-
wood to take a photo of the old Doc
Cowen house. Richard Smith told
us that it was looking very seedy.
Faye Young and I batched in Doc
and Vora’s attic in the school year
1935-36. It never froze up there
and they might have us down for
supper once in a while. Faye was
a good cook and housekeeper. So
many memories! The year of 1936
was when we had the late March
blizzard and Mr. Brown and Mr.
Fessenden and another man froze
to death. We ran out of food and
had to charge a dollar’s worth at
Sam Davis’ store. We gathered
twigs from a brush pile out back of
Cowen’s and picked up bits of coal
down by the railroad tracks for
our tiny wood stove. Faye got a
ride home, but I was stuck there.
My parents, the Rolla Palmers,
lived five miles north of Grind-
stone. The mail didn’t go out there
for six weeks. When it did go,
Frances Rausch and I went along
with them. Swede Griggs was the
mail carrier and Howard Kennedy
went along to help shovel snow.
We stayed home for a week.
Wayne and Gwynn also took
photos of the grain elevator at
Cottonwood and the old Congrega-
tional Church.
Sunday, September 8, 2013, at
Somerset Court we had an ice
cream social in honor of Grand-
parent’s Day. It was also assisted
living week. Our activity directors
served ice cream sundaes with
chocolate, strawberry and/or
caramel toppings. There was also
coffee and ice water. Thank you
girls for coming in on Sunday to
give us a party. We had quite a
few visitors. Some that I saw were
Fred Smith’s daughter and some
grandchildren; Irene Arbach had
two daughters and their hus-
bands; Connie Stevens had sev-
eral grandchildren. My
granddaughter, Sheridan, and her
son, Tiger, age five, and daughter,
Cecelia, age three came for sup-
per. We played a little hide and
seek and also watched the sky be-
cause it was rumbling.
Monday, September 9, at Som-
erset Court we had good fun with
crazy sock day. Irene McKnight
had a pair of knee high Christmas
socks. Dot Busfield and her sister,
Jane Bunch, had unique socks,
sort of bumpy and sparkly, one
wore a yellow sock and red sock
and the other wore a red sock and
a yellow sock! Irene Cox wore a
black knee high and a white knee
high and Vivian had red and
white socks. There was a good
number of residents who partici-
pated and we all received ample
Somerset bucks.
Ray and Mildred Kraemer re-
turned to Somerset Court after
their trip to California where they
attended the wedding and recep-
tion of a granddaughter aboard
the Queen Mary. (This was of spe-
cial significance to Ray, who re-
turned on the Queen Mary from
his service in the United States
Army from Germany after World
War II.) They looked like the trip
did them good.
Monday, my son, Wayne, and
daughter-in-law, Gwynn, took me
to my doctor appointment. It is
comfortable to have the kids go
with me. Thanks, Wayne and
Gwynn. The doctor told me to
carry on, present medications are
sufficient for now and my next ap-
pointment is in November.
It is said that there are three
kinds of people in the world: those
who make things happen, those
who let things happen and those
who didn’t know that anything
Monday evening, my son, David
Hansen, Ft. Pierre, came to Rapid
City to visit with his brother,
Frank, from Albuquerque. He took
me along over to Wayne and
Gwynn’s for supper. Clayton
Hansen was also a guest. We had
some super tender beef and deli-
cious vegetables and potatoes and
toast with garlic butter. Thanks
for having us for a get-together.
Clayton brought me back to Som-
erset Court. Thanks, Clayton.
David Hansen reported that he
had recently attended the farm
show in Mitchell and showed and
sold several of his inventions, in-
cluding his post puller and
pounder, his wire welder and his
automatic target resetter.
My daughter, Vinnie Hansen,
Santa Cruz, Calif., wrote that she
had a good time at the writers’
conference entitled “Killer
Nashville” at Nashville, Tenn., in
August. One of their activities was
like the mystery dinners you may
have heard of where the diners as-
sume the roles of story characters
and solve a murder. She said that
her husband, Danny, was prepar-
ing for another open studio on Oc-
tober 12 and 13 and October 19
and 20. she enclosed a postcard
with one of Danny’s recent paint-
ings, “Mystic Highway,” a 22x24
acrylic on canvas.
Thank you to Maxine Kilmer
who lent me the music for her
“Balck Hawk Waltz.”
First in line for the football pool
was Addie Rorvig, second was
Floy Olson, third was Fred Smith,
Marilyn Butts, Don Stensgaard
and Vivian Hansen. You can find
your new football sheet on the
wall rack with the word searches.
Wednesday, September 11, at
Somerset Court we had our bus
trip to Wall Drug. It was a fine
day for the trip. It looked like
some fields of scrubby corn that
will make a lot of good chompin’ if
cut for fodder. Lucille Huether
met relatives there and Fred
Smith met friends, the Lyle
Jarviss, from out southwest of
Wall. I had a visit with Donna
Jedlicka, (formerly of Philip) who
works at Wall Drug and she told
me that old friend, Dale Keyser, is
in the hospital in Philip. Best
wishes, Dale, on your prompt re-
We enjoyed lunch at Wall Drug
and shopped. Fred took home a
dozen donuts. We all enjoyed the
displays and entertainment.
There were sprinklers out in the
backyard and beautiful hanging
baskets and flower beds with a va-
riety of sages and foliages. I met
Elaine and Jerry Marsillo, Tor-
rance, Calif. They were interested
in Virgil’s traveler’s chapel sign in
Wall Drug. So I took their photo
there and they took mine. We plan
to exchange photos. They expect to
take about four weeks to reach
Torrance, as they may stop at
points of interest along the way.
Some of the Somerset gang had ice
cream to finish off our visit to Wall
Drug. We were in the dining area
where there are 18 big, colorful
Tiffany lamp shades. I didn’t see
two alike.
Irene and Royal McKnight cele-
brated their 65th wedding an-
niversary on Saturday, September
14, with a party at Fountain
Irene Cox had company at sup-
per, Dewayne and Joanne
Borszich. Joanne is Gertie Kopp’s
daughter. Gertie, formerly of
Philip, and later of Somerset
Court, was Joe Cox’s sister.
LaVerne With, my neighbor
across the hall, brought me a big
red tomato right off the vine! Her
son brought her a few from his
garden. Thank you, LaVerne.
Thursday, September 12, at
Somerset Court we had the activ-
ity of Wii bowling and later super
bingo, which is the usual game
with bigger prizes!
We had a good turnout for
Thursday’s necktie day. There
were several beautiful ties and tie
pins. Quite a variety, some used
slim scarves, some had bow ties.
There were several with humor-
ous themes.
Helen Amundson is still in the
hospital and Eleanor Holmes is
also in the hospital. We wish them
steady recovery.
Famous words of Ted Hustead,
founder of the Wall Drug Store:
Ted said that free ice water taught
him a great lesson and that there
is no place on earth that is godfor-
saken. No matter where you live,
you can succeed, because wher-
ever you are, you can reach out to
other people with something that
they need.

Ancient wisdom for modern Iife
Everyone has been tempted at some point in
their life, even Jesus Christ. When you are
tempted, how do you react? Do you hesitate
and consider the consequences? Or, do you
reject it quickly with the Word of God like
Jesus did in this passage? Temptation comes
in many forms. Do not let your guard down.
Resist it hard and fast.
Again, the devil taketh
him up into an
exceeding high
mountain, and sheweth
him all the kingdoms of
the world, and the glory
of them; And saith unto
him, All these things
will I give thee, if thou
wilt fall down and
worship me. Then saith
Jesus unto him, Get
thee hence, Satan: for
it is written, Thou shalt
worship the Lord thy
God, and him only shalt
thou serve. Matthew
4:8-10 (KJV)

Kelly Douglas Jones, age 62,
Quinn, S.D., a kind and gentle
man, passed from this earth Sep-
tember 7, 2013, at Rapid City Re-
gional Hospital after his upbeat
and courageous battle with can-
Kelly was a friend to all who
met him. His crazy wit, his readi-
ness to help and his loving nature
endured him to all. His artistic
ability ranged from creating
miniature, detailed clay figures
and small wood carvings to
wooden signs Kelly carved for
homes and businesses in Wall and
He had a love of nature and an
insatiable thirst for knowledge –
demonstrated in his love of di-
nosaurs and history. An avid
Broncos fan, football season found
him and his mother keeping
charts and records of each game
as they would place friendly wa-
gers with each other. They were
quite a pair!
DB (Denver Broncos) was the
last of many dogs blessed to have
Kelly as master and friend. Kelly
treated each with the love and re-
spect he showed all who crossed
his path.
Most important to Kelly were
his friends and family. He always
had time to help, or share in what-
ever was important to them. His
last years were spent in service to
his parents as he unselfishly cared
for them.
Kelly didn’t have an easy life.
He was born with physical chal-
lenges that never left him. Grow-
ing up, he lived in three different
towns – Winner, Chamberlain,
and Custer, each requiring him to
make a new set of friends. As an
adult he continued his varied
homes. The Navy took him to San
Diego, Florida and Iceland. He
later worked in Denver, Sioux
Falls, Onida, Wall and Quinn, as
well as Yellowstone and Badlands
National Parks. Kelly readily
made lifelong friends wherever he
went. He was loved.
Kelly is preceded in death by
his parents, Mary and Doug; sur-
vived by his sisters, Donna Jones,
Mary Kay Molliconi and Judy
Uminski; 10 nieces and nephews;
16 great-nieces and nephews;
close cousins, Ron and Ginger
Stickland, Rhonda and David Wil-
hemi; and “adopted brother,”
Denny Terry and his wife, Patti.
Memorial services will be held
in the spring at Black Hills Na-
tional Cemetery.
Arrangements are with the
Rush Funeral Chapel of Wall.

serenely at her home, Friday, Sep-
tember 13, 2013, after a stoic bat-
tle with multiple myeloma. She

daughter of Earl and Ella Mae
(Maxwell) Stephens. In 1931, the
family moved to Meade County
and lived on a sheep ranch near
Union Center. From 1933-1943,
they lived on several places in
Jackson County and Bonnie at-
tended Indian Creek and South
Creek schools. Bonnie’s parents
and brother moved to Piedmont,
so she stayed with Ross and Au-
gusta Warner to complete her
high school education.
Bonnie graduated from Kadoka
High School on May 21, 1943. She
then attended National College of
Business in Rapid City from the
spring of 1943 to August 1944,
and graduated with a business de-
gree. Her first employment was

Wanblee, where they built their
home on a ranch and raised their
family. In 2011, after the death of
her husband Wayne, Bonnie
moved to the Gateway Apart-
ments in Kadoka.
Bonnie had a deep love for her
grandchildren and great-grand-
children. She enjoyed spending
time with them and was very
proud of each and every one of
them. Quilting was Bonnie’s fa-
vorite pastime. Many an hour was
spent carefully cutting blocks
from scraps. She was very senti-
mental over her quilts and en-
joyed passing them on to her
daughters and grandchildren. She
also loved to spend time gardening
and tending to her flowers.
Bonnie was a member of the
Bennett County Legion Auxiliary,
Wanblee Ladies Aid Society, and
the St. Ignatius Catholic Church
for many years.

ice as a parts clerk supervisor. She
also worked at the Buffalo Bar
and Triple H Truck Stop in
Murdo. She enjoyed working at
these places because of her love to
talk and meet new people. Every-
one was a friend, and on more
than one occasion, Marlene would
buy a family a meal, a tank of gas,
or give them some money to help
them reach their destination.
Marlene suffered a stroke on
June 12, 2009, during surgery.
Marlene was in the Rapid City
hospital and Avera hospital in
Sioux Falls. On September 12, she
was transferred to Lakewood,
Colo., where her husband stayed
with her until Bub’s sister, Nancy

her until she was released. Nancy
then moved to Murdo and lived
with them until she was admitted

How about that almost full
moon and those stars in that sky,
Sunday evening? It was an ab-
solutely beautiful night. Fall har-
vest has been put on hold for a bit
as we have been getting some lit-
tle showers of rain. Not a lot, but
enough! Some have finished plant-
ing winter wheat – others are still
planting. It has been a busier fall
than normal for this area, due to
the fact more fall crops than is
normal for this area were planted,
due in part to winter wheat crops
not making it, so fall crops were
planted in its place. Wow! Now
that’s what my aunt and former
Midland News reporter, Ida Hunt,
would call – a wordy sentence.
Speaking of fall, it was 45˚ when
we got up this morning and at
1:00 this afternoon the tempera-
ture is 73˚. Fall is in the air at the
moment, but when you’ve lived in
South Dakota you know those
temperatures can turn back to
summer in a heart beat. With the
trees full of leaves from those won-
derful rains we had this summer –
I’m looking forward to a showcase
of color this fall. Baring a hit by
Jack Frost, that is! Time to get at
the news for this week!
I got some feedback from my
article on the Immanuel Lutheran
Church in last week’s Pioneer Re-
view and feel it’s worth sharing.
Deloris Iversen said she’d forgot-
ten about a fire burning across the
prairie headed for the church and
cemetery a number of years ago.
Fearing it was going to burn down
the church, they were much re-
lieved when it stopped at the fence
of the church and cemetery. As
she shared this with me, I couldn’t
help but think of her work to save
the church, not wanting to see it
sold, and a statement she had
made and was in my article, “I
don’t believe God Himself wants
this church taken out of here.” I’m
thinking you’re right, Deloris.
And in visiting by phone with
Bev (Sheeley) Johnson, Highlands
Ranch, Colo., she shared memo-
ries of the church and the Boe
family that would also have been
nice to have in the article. She re-
members going to that church at
different times with her folks,
Ervin and Ann Sheeley, and her
brother, Bob. On those times, ei-
ther she or Bob would play the
piano for church services. Knute
and Dorothe Boe would invite
them to their home following
church for a meal and a time of
visiting. In later years, Bev would
marry Luther Johnson, who was
pastor at that church for a time.
And so, it makes me realize once
again, that whether it’s writing a
history book on 1880 Town, or an
article for a local newspaper, or a
local news column for that same
newspaper – you will learn things
you wished you had known at the
time you wrote it. That’s how life
is. One story brings to mind an-
other story, but not having that
information doesn’t change the joy
you had on the journey.
And just between you and me,
something as simple as a walk to
the local grocery store can bring
you an interesting story. Walking
up the street to the north of our
house, I got to the top of the hill
just west of the former Kink and
Marie Anderson house, and did I
get a surprise. Looking up ahead
to the store, its parking lot was
filled with hot rod cars and pick-
ups of all different shapes and col-
ors. As I got there, a lady was
visiting with Jamie Reimann,
along the edge of all of those hot
rods and being a rather nosy news
lady, I stopped to ask what was
going on. The lady told me it had
been 50 years since she had been
in Midland; she had come for the
wedding of Martha Reimann and
Marvin Ulrich. The lady’s name
was Lois and she and her hus-
band, Al Vogele, Rapid City, had
one of those hot rods in the park-
ing lot here in Midland. So, let’s
back track a bit here! Lois and
Martha became friends in college
and after graduating, both moved
to Glendive, Mont., to teach and
were roommates. Both met their
future husbands at Glendive,
Mont. Martha and Marvin were
married in September and Lois
and Al were married in December,
the same year. So, that would
mean Martha and Marvin are cel-
ebrating their 50th wedding an-
niversary this month. While we
were visiting, another lady came
up getting in on that visiting. Her
name was Jan and she is married
to Butch Peters and they also live
in Rapid City and have a hot rod
car. Butch is related to Freddy
and Olin Peters, not sure if they
were brothers, but he does look
like a Peters. Anyway, I told the
ladies I needed to get their infor-
mation down, so I could put it in
my local new’s column, because
their story had to do with locals in
this area. One of them asked, “Oh,
is it going to be in the New York
Times?” “No, I said, “Better than
that, it will be in the Midland
New’s column of the Philip Pio-
neer Review.” Need I mention,
they were impressed? Just kid-
ding, but we did have a good laugh
over it! They told that the group
had been invited to a hot rod bar-
beque in Philip, after which they
were going on a run to Midland,
Belvidere, Kadoka and back to
Philip. They were from Rapid
City, Sturgis, Philip and Newell,
to name a few. I must say it was
quite impressive as they pulled
out of that parking lot heading
south to I-90. Always find it inter-
esting the things you can learn
just by asking questions.
Gene and Audrey Jones left for
Rapid City Friday, so Gene could
participate in the South Dakota
Senior Olympics in Rapid City.
Friday night, Gene played in the
60 years and older games, against
three other teams, where his team
won the gold medals. Saturday
and Sunday, his regular team
from Pierre played in the 50 year
and older tourney. There were 13
teams playing in that. The Pierre
team, which Gene plays on, got
third in their division. Friday
night, Mark and Glenda Nemec,
Hill City, and Ellie Saucerman
and daughters, Rapid City, came
to watch the games. Julie, Jer and
Walt Whitcher, Paula Jones and
several of her softball team
friends also came to watch. Au-
drey told that on Saturday and
Sunday, Julie, Jer and Walt
Whitcher and Paula Jones and
some friends were there to cheer
“dad's” team on.
Gene attended the funeral of
Anthony Woitte Saturday morn-
ing, while Audrey helped Julie
with her cleaning job at the office.
Sunday afternoon, Gene and Au-
drey returned home.
Pat Snook visited her daughter
and grandkids, Lori Konst, Brooke
and Brett, on Labor Day. Lori’s
husband, Tracy Konst, was at
work, cooking some special Mexi-
can dishes to serve at the their
business in Piedmont that
evening. Pat reports Sylvia Huber
has invited her to her home in
Rapid City several times and this
past week it finally happened.
They found they actually live near
each other, but their homes are
separated by a ridge of large tree
covered hills. Pat still has her
home in the country north of Mid-
land, but also has a home in Rapid

Don and Sally Ehlers drove to
McHenry, N.D., Friday to attend
the funeral for their 21-year-old
great-nephew, Brennan Ehlers,
who was diagnosed with brain
cancer four years ago. Also attend-
ing were Donnie Ehlers, Philip,
and Rory Ehlers, Ft. Pierre. Fu-
nerals are never easy, but when it
is someone who is so young, it is
even harder. Our sincere sympa-
thies to the family of Brennan
Cassidy Trapp was home for
the weekend from the South
Dakota School of Mines and Tech-
nology in Rapid City. Gavin Snook
came home for the weekend from
the South Dakota State Univer-
sity in Brookings.
Wednesday, Clint and Prerry
Saucerman, Carol Hunt, Wilma
Saucerman and Marlin Evans,
Philip, headed for Rapid City for
the birthday party for Sawyer’s
(ninth) and Meleah’s (sixth) birth-
days. Mark and Glenda Nemec,
Hill City, were also there. The
party was held at the home of
Sawyer and Meleah’s folks, Tel
and Ellie (Nemec) Saucerman,
who were there along with their
other two children, Emma and
Raygen, as well as friends from
church, Brad and Linda Abelseth,
Nisland, and Cherly Abelseth,
Rapid City. Games were played,
followed by supper, birthday cake
and opening presents. Happy
birthday, Sawyer and Meleah!
Prerry said other then going to the
birthday party, they have been
staying home planting winter
wheat and getting those fall proj-
ects done.
Last Monday, Ernie and Laurel
Nemec were in Murdo for Grand-
parent’s Day for their great-
granddaughter, Addison Rankin,
who is in kindergarten there. Ad-
dison’s grandmother, Holly
Nemec, along with granddaugh-
ter, Emry Nemec, were also there.
Addison is the daughter of Tyler
and Chelsee Rankin. Addison
showed everyone her room and all
went to the gym for a program put
on by the students and for some
snacks. Grandparent’s Day is al-
ways a big deal to those little kids.
Attending the 80th birthday
party for Pearl (Grosz) Ahnberg in
Rapid City were Bob and Verona
Evans, Ernie and Laurel Nemec,
Randy and Holly Nemec and Red
and Irene Willoughby. Pearl’s
grown children were all there:
Jody and Doug Merchen,
Spearfish, Prerry and Lynn Grosz,
Rapid City, and Steve Grosz, Elko,
Nev., (his wife wasn’t able to come
as their kids were in school and
Steve was staying for a while
longer to visit with family). Happy
birthday, Pearl!
Sunday, Morrie and Barb
Jones headed north on Hwy. 14,
going north of Hwy. 34 where they
have land near where Donnie and
Bobette Schofield live. They were
checking on their cattle. Barb re-
ports it was a beautiful drive with
the changes in the land with its
Cheyenne breaks and flat lands of
farming country. On the return
trip, they drove through
Milesville, then to Philip where
they had supper and visited with
Barb’s mom, Arline Petoske, at
the Philip Nursing Home, before
heading home after an enjoyable
drive. Knowing Barb, she had her
ever present camera, taking pic-
tures along the way. She does
have a gift for picture taking.
From Monday through Thurs-
day of last week, Barb Jones was
at Howard, helping her daughter,
Carrie Mentele, with the kids.
Carrie’s husband, Wes, was on a
hunting trip and with Carrie
working full-time and three kids
to look after; it makes it nice to
have the help. Plus, Barb enjoys
that time with those grandkids.
Karel Reiman attended the fu-
neral service of Marie Denke at
First Lutheran Church at Wall
Saturday. Marie and her late hus-
band, Helmuth Denke, had six
children. Karel’s dad, Edmund
Eisenbraun, and Helmuth were
cousins. Edmund, Goldie, Karel
and her siblings lived at
Creighton, as did Helmuth, Marie,
and their family. They enjoyed
family get-togethers, Karel
babysat their kids, and remem-
bers teaching them in Sunday
school. Listening as Karel shared
some of her memories of those
years you can tell it was a time of
building good memories of fun
times together.
Midland’s Merchants Appreci-
ation Day is coming up this Satur-
day, September 21, with a parade,
good food, games for young and
old, drawing for prizes given from
local merchants of Midland. Also,
that day is the Fosheim/Schofield
family reunion, so it is going to be
a very busy day.
Relay for Life of Quad County
was held in Wall on September 14
and 15, 2013. The Midland Slam
Dunker team attended and partic-
ipated in this event. Cancer sur-
vivors present were introduced
and given T-shirts and medals.
They walked the first lap. Along
with many cancer survivors pres-
ent from the Midland area, our
two youngest survivors, Sarah
Huston and Stetson Jones, were
able to be there. The Midland
Slam Dunker team took up about
100 luminaries to honor our can-
cer families and friends. They
want to thank all those who pur-
chased them. A highlight of the
evening was a video done by D.J.
Rush entitled “In Honor and In
Memory.” Winners of the Slam
Dunker’s raffle items made by
Betty Block were Carol Hunt and
Jim Tolton. The word cancer is
never a word anyone wants to
hear, but it is a word that has af-
fected so many people’s lives.
Shorty and Maxine Jones went
to the funeral for Lucille Brunsch
September 7 at Martin. She lived
near Shorty's Berry relatives
south of Belvidere, near Norris,
and the families were friends for
many years, working cattle to-
gether, etc. She was a wonderful
person and very interesting to
visit with. Her family took care of
her, so she was able to stay in her
home till the end.
Last Saturday, Maxine and
Shorty drove to Rapid City and at-
tended the 80th birthday party of
Pearl Grosz Ahnberg. Maxine re-
ports all of Pearl’s children were
there and it was a great afternoon
of visiting. They also visited with
Ross and Melanie Jones, but
missed seeing granddaughters,
Cassie, who was in Sioux Falls,
and, Kalli, who was in Casper,
Wyo., playing in soccer matches
and travelled with other parents
this time.
Bob Seidler went with Maxine
Jones to Kadoka Monday to pick
up some vaccine for calves being
given fall shots that day, and then
they went with Brianna, Jordyn
and Jana Jones to take dinner out
to the pasture for the men. It was
a beautiful day for this and every-
one had a good time seeing the fall
cattle work get under way. Jordyn
had a great time petting the
horses, who came over to the
'lunch corral' to check out the little
person reaching through the fence
to pet them.

My son, Marvin Eide, was down
at my place and was recalling old
times and people we knew. Some
of those he recalled were Charlie
Reynick and George Kenzy and
how he liked them. Marvin grew
up with a lot of older men from
around the neighborhood, so he
had a lot of grandpas and Charlie
was one of his favorites. He liked
to ride with Charlie in his yellow
pickup with the curved windows
in the corner of the cab where he
could look out in all directions
while they drove to bring the cat-
tle in from the pasture.
Charlie and Alma Reynick just
lived up the road north of us about
two miles and we spent a lot of
time at their house visiting and
helping them as needed. So many
great meals were enjoyed there
and their daughter, Marilyn,
helped with Marvin and also
helped me clean house.
Reynicks had four kids, Ruth,
Gene, Glen and Marilyn. Gene
passed away a few years ago.
Ruth lives in Crawford, Neb. Mar-
ilyn is in Torrington, Wyo., and
Glen is in Missouri. Both Gene
and Glen became teachers and
taught the Deadman School. Later
years they moved on to teach else-
where. Both boys played football
and were in other sports as well,
so Charlie and Alma attended
many sporting events and enjoyed
Charlie and Alma played for
many dances at the Grindstone
Hall. Charlie played the drums
and Alma played the piano and
Morris Sorenson played the git
box and at times Kenny Brooks
played the saxophone. But come
Sunday morning, even after a
night of playing, Alma would be at
church playing for the Sunday
service. Alma played both by ear
and by music.
In the 1949 blizzard, Charlie
went up the road where they were
stuck coming back from Bill Old-
enberg’s where they were spend-
ing New Year’s Day. He brought
Orville Lewison and his family to
his house where they stayed for
several weeks before they could
get home. Orville walked home
after it cleared up after the storm
in a day or two leaving the family
there. Arnold was a small baby
and they ran out of canned milk
for him. Charlie rode his great
saddle horse, Smokey, two miles
over the drifts to Ted Knutson’s to
bring back milk for Arnold. He
looked after the school kids and if
he heard that a storm was coming
he would go over to the school-
house and get the kids all sent
home before it hit. The teacher
would usually board at Reynick’s
unless she was a local teacher liv-
ing nearby and was able to drive
home in time.
Charlie was Kenzy’s right-hand
man on the shoot scissors and all
the years a cow or calf did not get
passed him till one day after many
a cow got through and Charlie
shut the scissors and went and sat
down and said to Kenneth, “I am
done, you had better get a younger
guy on that shoot.” It was not
many years after that, that we lost
Charlie with a heart attack.
Visiting with Jim and Norma
Oldenberg this week were Mike
and Judy Melvin, Sioux Falls.
They all went to Faith Friday,
September 13, for the wedding of
a grandson and nephew, Clay
Brown and Brandi Donovan, who
were married Saturday, Septem-
ber 14. They all returned Sunday
afternoon and Mike and Judy
went home Monday morning.
I had planned to go up for the
wedding, but came down with that
awful cold that is going around
and did not feel well enough to go.
Ross and Janice Williams and
family waited will Saturday to go
the Faith for the wedding. They
needed to get caught up on some
work while the kids were all
home. Clay and Brandi moved a
doublewide onto his folk’s place as
Clay is a welder and is working in
the oil field in North Dakota. He
has so many days on and then so
many off so he can be home on his
days off.
I had a very nice call from my
cousin, Doris (Carstensen) Kraft,
wishing me a happy 80th birth-
day. She filled me in on her fam-
ily. She and George live in an
assisted living center. George is 81
years old and his health is failing
and needed more care and she
said that she needed assistance
also. Their daughter, Theresa,
lives in Mankato, Minn., and calls
on all special occasions. Doris said
that they made a trip out to see
them a few years ago and that it
was such an enjoyable trip.
Their second daughter, Patty,
lives in Rapid City and works at
the Wright eye clinic in the eye
glass department in that building.
Their son, who had cancer at the
age of 13, has a good job at the air
base and is cancer free at this
time. Their youngest daughter,
Wendy, has a good job and is
doing well and Doris said that
they are all good to them and
come to see them often. George
has to go for doctor appointments
and treatments and Patty comes
and takes him to all those. Doris
said that her sister, Arlis, and her
visit often by phone and exchange
family pictures and happenings.
Marvin and Vicki Eide took
their all terrain vehicle back to
Pierre Monday, September 16.
They had it down there last week
to be fixed and brought it home
and a bearing in the rear end was
out. They did not put it in while it
was there, so had to return it to
have that done. They plan to get
back for Keagan and Colby’s foot-
ball game in the afternoon. I also
planned to attend the game when
I took the news in later in the day.
Mel and Beth Smith flew to
Tennessee to Melann’s for grand-
parent’s day at school for their
granddaughter, Gabi. They plan
to be back home in a four days.
Mel was out last week to help me
get a few things done prior to him
leaving for Tennessee.
Seems this news is getting long,
so will have to put off the write-up
on George and Zelda Kenzy till
next week.
I finally got all the glass cleaned
up and my windows back in so I
can see out again. Marvin took the
plywood off the windows and I do
hope it is not too soon. I did have
plexiglass put in the storm win-
dows which may save a glass
clean up another day or next year.
(A cleaning tip – do not wash plex-
iglass with anything but plain
water as it is not good for it.)

The Wall Cross Country Invita-
tional meet, Friday, September
13, began under cloudy skies, tem-
peratures in the 70s, and strong
winds that would keep personal
bests out of reach for the day.
Wall’s first race was the boys’
varsity. Again, junior Nelson Hol-
man led the Scotties as he used
Wall’s Austin Huether (eighth
place 2000 state meet) to outrun
Rapid City Christian’s Cole Smith
for the runner-up position. Hol-
man’s time was 19:17.
Sophomore Garrett Snook ran
inside the top 10 from the start. A
very good race came down to
Snook sprinting past Rapid City
Christian’s Charlie Wilhelm to
claim the seventh place medal.
Snook’s time was 20:17. Rounding
out the team, sophomore Keegan
Burnett kept Lyman County’s Jor-
dan Jessop behind him for 21st
place, with a time of 23:32.
Varsity team points were first
place – Rapid City Christian, 16
points, second place – Wall, 23
points, Philip, 28 points, third
place – Lyman, 31 points, fourth
place – New Underwood, 33
Girls’ varsity ran next with Ellie
Coyle leading a star-studded field,
with the top four girls all having
earned top 25 place medals in the
2012 state meet. Coyle’s summer
training paid off as she was able
to open a 24 second gap in the
final mile over Rapid City Christ-
ian’s Savannah Huntley. Coyle’s
winning time of 17:13 gives her
three individual champion fin-
ishes in 2013.
Many athletes might be intimi-
dated by the star power in this
race, but junior Katlin Knutson
ran a smart race, running in the
lead group to get a great start.
Knutson finished using Kadoka’s
Scout Sudbeck to pace her
through the finish line at 20:02 for
sixth place. Freshman Shay Hand
has been improving steadily
through the season and was able
to hold off Rapid City Christian’s
Emma Smith to earn her first top
10 finish of 2013, placing ninth
with a time of 21:03. Senior Alli-
son Pekron battled Faith’s Shayna
Engel throughout the race.
Pekron placed 13th with a time of
A strong leader and a tightly
packed group of three let the Scot-
ties earn their first team champi-
onship of 2013. Varsity team
points were first place – Philip, 11
points, second place Lyman – 17
points, third place – Jones
County, 19 points.
Seventh grader Jasmine Fergu-
son gave Philip yet another cham-
pion in 2013 and her first ever
win. She took the lead early on in
this 4,000 meter junior varsity
girls’ race. Ferguson finished 89
seconds in front of second place
Lenae Haines of Faith. Ferguson’s
time was 21:07.
One more championship to close
the day, as seventh grader Khalen
Martin, eighth grader Conner
Dekker and ninth grader Damian
Bartels combined to earn the boys’
junior varsity team championship.
Though Martin led the Scotties
early, it was Dekker crossing the
finish line at 20:00, leading the
young Scotties at race end.
Dekker placed third overall. Bar-
tels followed just five seconds back
of his teammate for fourth place at
20:05, with Martin in the fifth
spot at 20:19. Great run by all
three young men.
Team points were first place –
Philip, nine points, second place –
Rapid City Christian – 14 points,
third place – Faith, 24 points.
The Scotties will race next on
the Lyman Golf Course, Saturday,
September 21, at the Lyman
County Invitational.

Mild temperatures for the 27th
running of the White River Pres-
tige Run, Monday, September 9,
yielded personal best times
throughout the Scottie cross coun-
try team.
Seventh grader Khalen Martin
ran the junior high mile run, plac-
ing third overall among 19 entries.
His time was 5:39.
The Scotties were able to put five
girls on the varsity start line. Soph-
omore Ellie Coyle went out with St.
Francis’ Haylee Quick Bear and
Emma Larvie. Coyle steadily put
distance between herself and Quick
Bear as they closed this race. Coyle
was the champion at 14:43 with a
23 second lead over Quick Bear.
Junior Katlin Knutson used
Jones County’s Rachel Buxel (11th
in the 2012 state meet) to complete
this course in 16:42 and place fifth.
Seventh grader Jasmine Ferguson
outran Timber Lake’s Mary Aberle
to place ninth with a time of 17:35.
Freshman Shay Hand pulled up on
Timber Lake’s Kenidee Keller and
Todd County’s Caitlyn Wilkie in
the final quarter mile. Hand moved
around Keller with ease, then took
a great run at Wilkie, who pushed
to the wire but could not hold Hand
off as Hand stepped in front to
place 12th. With a time of 18:01,
Hand cut 3:30 from her previous
course best.
Senior Allison Pekron ran her
best race of the year as she dropped
57 seconds from her course best to
earn the 15th place medal in a time
of 18:36.
A strong leader and a tightly
packed group of four Scotties gave
Philip the runner-up team spot.
Team points were first place – St.
Francis, 12 points, second place –
Philip, 13 points, third place –
Timber Lake, 26 points, fourth
place – Todd County, 31 points.
Junior Nelson Holman led the
Scotties boys’ team as he, White
River’s Matthew Beardt and Todd
County’s Donald Aqualo formed
the lead group. All three took
turns leading, all the while put-
ting a full minute between them-
selves and the rest of the field. All
three were still together in the
final sprint. Holman placed sec-
ond, his time of 17:36 being a 90
second course improvement.
Sophomore Garrett Snook, run-
ning inside the top five most of
this race, found a cactus as he ex-
ited the airport, with a short stop
for its removal, Snook went on to
place sixth. His time of 19:06 was
an amazing 3:11 course improve-
ment. Sophomore Keegan Burnett
earned the Scottie three spot as he
took 22 seconds from his course
best to earn the 15th place medal.
Burnett’s time was 23:06.
Freshman Damian Bartels, run-
ning this varsity race for the first
time, pulled in 16th place with a
time of 23:58. Eighth grader Con-
ner Dekker, running in his second
ever varsity race, placed 19th with
a time of 24:30. This gave the boys
the runner-up spot. Team points
were first place – White River, 20
points, second place – Philip, 23
points, third place – Todd County,
29 points.

The Philip Garden Club held a
meeting and an outing on the
evening of Tuesday, August
20, at the yard of Sandra O’-
Connor, shown above. “The
old fence I had brought in
from Powell was installed
around 1907, or maybe 1908,
in front of the school house.
The same fence was installed
in front of the post office. I am
assuming it was the post office
at that time. It is a very unique
fence and Gerry Sloat did an
amazing job combining the
old with the new. Anyone who would like to stop and look at it is welcome. There is certainly a lot history in that
old fence. Oh, if only fences could talk,” stated O’Connor. Another tour, August 13 was of Jenna Finn’s place.

The Philip Scotties football
team traveled to Fort Pierre, Fri-
day, September 13, to disprove the
unluckiness of the day by defeat-
ing the Stanley County Buffaloes
The game was won in the first
quarter. Philip’s Paul Guptill was
given the ball for a 35-yard run for
the first and only score of the
game. The conversion attempt
failed, as did any other attempt to
get on the scoreboard. The game
ended 6-0 in favor of the Scotties.

Philip Trails Project:
Council reviewed the following engineer-
ing estimates for the project. Those so-
licited for estimates were listed on the SD
Dept. of Transportation (DOT) approved
engineering consultant list from the Rapid
City area and recommended following the
Sept. 2nd meeting. Each consultant was
asked to provide estimates based on the
same criteria utilized in soliciting the initial
quote from Kadrmas, Lee & Jackson, Ìnc.
Ferber Engineering Company, Ìnc.
Phase 1.1 Const. $55,000.00 -
Phase 1.1 Eng. $28,773.00
*Engineering estimate includes design,

tion administration services.

Phase 1.2 Eng. $25,500.00

Phase 1.3 Eng. $25,500.00
(5 site visits)
*Engineering survey services are not in-
cluded in the cost estimates, but could be
added for an additional $5,000 for all
Kadrmas, Lee & Jackson, Ìnc. (KLJ)
Phase 1.1 Const. $53,284.83
Phase 1.1 Eng. $11,300.00
Phase 1.2 Const. $288,266.83
Phase 1.2 Eng. $41,600.00
Phase 1.3 Const. $51,493.48
Phase 1.3 Eng. $12,100.00
*Construction cost estimates include a
contingency while the engineering esti-
mates include both surveying and de-
sign/engineering fees.
(This estimate was submitted with the
City's TAP grant application.)
For the record, the above engineering
cost estimates did not reflect consistency
in relation to the services provided for the
project and/or phases. Ìn addition,
CETEC Engineering Services and FMG,
Ìnc. were also solicited, but respectfully
declined to provide an estimate.
The initial engineering fees estimate pro-
vided by KLJ was reported at $59,000 for
engineering services for all three of the
phases of the entire Phase 1. Ìt is noted
that if KLJ were engaged to perform the
engineering services for all three phases
of Phase 1 - their fee would be reduced
by $6,000.
Council Member Larson clarified that due
to the breakdown of Phase 1 into three
separate phases, the engineering costs
increased overall, which she stated is
common as engineering firms tend to give
a reduced rate when paying for all fees
Council Member Henrie stated that this is
similar to Four Front Designs' estimate,
noting that their estimate indicates that
the engineering fees would be reduced if
the City would commit to all three phases
with their firm. She also noted that their
estimate does not include survey engi-
neering and this would be an additional
$5,000 expense.
Mayor Vetter requested the Council con-
sider only those engineering estimates for
phase 1.1 as a decision needs to be
made in order to move forward with the
project. He then pointed out that FFD and
KLJ provided the lowest estimates with
KLJ being the lowest.
Henrie stated that the estimate provided
from FFD is not as thorough as that pro-
vided by KLJ. She recognized that the
City only allotted a minimal amount of
time for the submission of these quotes.
Larson stated and confirmed that KLJ
provided their estimates in the same
amount of time or less.
Following review and discussion, motion
was made by Harry, seconded by Henrie
to approve the low engineering estimate
for the Philip Trails Project Phase 1.1 to
KLJ at an estimated price of $11,300.00.
Motion carried.
Motion was made by Henrie, seconded
by Larson to authorize submitting a Letter
of Ìntent to apply for Transportation Alter-
native Program (TAP) funds for the Philip
Trails Project Phases 1.2 and 1.3. Motion
Larson went on to discuss with those
present the TransCanada Community
grant, inquiring if the City's 18.05% por-
tion of the SD Hwy 73 Sidewalk project
should be included in the application. She
stated that a plan is in place to submit an
application for funding to cover the
18.05% of the Phase 1.2 and 1.3 of the
trails project, but could also include the
Hwy. 73 Sidewalk portion.
Council Member Matt stated that he is in
favor of including the Hwy. 73 Sidewalk
portion as it would release funds for future
projects. On the same note, he ques-
tioned if the additional request would re-
duce the City's chances for funding.
FO Van Lint clarified that the City's cur-
rent portion of the Hwy. 73 Sidewalk proj-
ect is estimated at approximately
$60,300.00. Should TAP funds through
the Safe Routes to School program be
approved, the City's portion would be re-
duced to the 18.05% or about
Matt and Larson were then questioned if
the TransCanada grant has specific crite-
ria that must be met in order to qualify for
funding. Matt stated that they fund proj-
ects that are safety based, but is uncer-
tain of the extent of funding. More
specifically, their grant application does
not provide specifics for funding as, in his
opinion, the scope for eligible projects is
Discussion ensued as to whether or not
the City should consider combining the
projects on the proposed Trans Canada
grant application or separate them if the
Hwy. 73 Sidewalk project is included.
Council Member Gartner recommended
listing each project separately as it will
provide leverage for the City's proposed
projects; allowing the option to grant fund-
ing for all or a part of them.
By general consensus of the Council,
they agreed with Gartner, submitting an
application naming each project along
with the requested funding separately.
FO Van Lint reminded the Council that the
City has also committed to the SD DOT
for their 80/20 program to update the
lighting along SD Hwy 73 during the Hwy.
73 Sidewalk project. The City will be re-
sponsible for 20% of the upgrade costs
and agree to be responsible for the elec-
trical fees associated with the light poles
as well as well as maintenance of the
lights. Ìn turn, any future repairs and/or
moving of the poles will be the State's re-
sponsibility. She stated that this expense
is in addition to the Hwy. 73 Sidewalk ex-
penses and inquired if this would also be
included in the grant application.
Larson questioned if the lighting upgrade
would be eligible for TAP funds through
the Safe Routes to Schools. FO Van Lint
stated that she would look into this further
as at this time, the State has not provided
any cost estimates for the upgrade.
Henrie then suggested the idea of visiting
with Marlene at Central Enhancement
District regarding the TransCanada Grant
application and her recommendation for
combining the projects.
Again, it was mentioned that more out-
side funding sources will assist in seeing
the projects to fruition.
Motion was then made by Matt, seconded
by Henrie to include the City's share for
both the SD Hwy 73 Sidewalk project and
lighting upgrade project in the Tran-
sCanada Community grant application.
Motion carried.

Motion was made by Matt, seconded by
Gartner to approve the following Resolu-
tion #2013-14. Motion carried with all
members voting aye.

Wood/Walden Ave. Ìmprovement
Jeff McCormick with SPN & Assoc. ad-
dressed the Council, reporting that his of-
fice notified Rosebud Concrete
Construction regarding the Council's di-
rective from their Sept. 3rd meeting. More
specifically relating to the installation of
the rip rap and retaining wall, north of
Charles Allen's house, to be completed in
accordance with the design specifica-
tions ÷ allowing no exceptions.
He went on to note that Rich Laber, Gen-
eral Manager of Rosebud Concrete, con-
tacted him following receipt of their
correspondence and has requested to
visit with the Council regarding their deci-
sion as well as provide an update on the
construction progress. He then turned the
floor over to Mr. Laber.
Mr. Laber opened his discussion by stat-
ing that their work with the project has
been delayed following a recommenda-
tion by Hills Material Company. This
came as a result of an onsite inspection
and assessment of the damages occur-
ring to the new asphalt, which were de-
termined to have been caused by
Rosebud's equipment operating on it dur-
ing the extreme heat, which makes the
asphalt more pliable. With the reduced
temperatures in this week's forecast, he
noted that Hills Material is planning to re-
turn tomorrow and repair the damages in
the asphalt.
Mr. Laber reported that they are also
planning to proceed with the concrete
driveway approaches tomorrow; starting
at the north end of N. Wood Ave. and
moving south. He advised that if there are
any properties to the south that need their
driveways done sooner, they are willing
to make accommodations.
Mr. Laber then went on to address the
Council's concern with the rip rap and re-
taining wall, stressing that he takes full re-
sponsibility for overlooking the eight foot
(8') requirement for the fabric underlay-
ment. He stated that in reviewing the
plans at the time of installation, he read
the plans for the fabric underlayment to
be five feet (5') from the back of curb, but
in reality, it needed to be 8' with three foot
(3') of that being installed under the road
bed. (For the record, this underlayment
was designed with part of it being under
the road bed as a means to hold the re-
taining wall in place.)
Mr. Laber then advised that following no-
tification of this oversight in the design
specification vs. how it has been con-
structed, he contacted Mr. McCormick, in-
quiring about his options to compensate
for this without having to remove the curb
and gutter and asphalt already installed
along the retaining wall area. As sug-
gested, Laber contacted the block com-
pany for recommended engineers that
design retaining walls. His first contact
was with an engineer in Minnesota, but
was unsuccessful in getting a design.
Today, he has been in contact with an en-
gineer in Pierre that is confident and will-
ing to design a retaining wall that exceeds
the current design specifications.
He then went on to reassure the Council
that the design will utilize the same block
and materials, but the installation method
will be revised in order to secure the wall.
This includes pouring a wider footing and
installing rebar behind the wall. The ac-
tual design is expected by the end of this
week for review.
Mr. McCormick reported that they had
recommended Mr. Laber consult with
their own engineering firm for the design
as SPN & Assoc. did not feel that it was
necessary for them to design the retain-
ing wall again. Ìn addition, he noted that
they are happy to review the design
plans, but will not approve anything with-
out the Council's directive.
Mayor Vetter pointed out to Mr. Laber that
Rosebud was made well aware of the
error before the curb, gutter and asphalt
were installed. Why wasn't it repaired be-
fore? Mr. Laber explained that he thought
the underlayment could be installed over
the curb and gutter with the use of an ex-
cavator. Again, he stated that he read the
plans for the underlayment at 5', not that
of the actual 8' requirement. He pointedly
admitted to missing the detail.
Mayor Vetter then questioned what he
planned to do to repair the rip rap that has
washed during a heavy rain fall earlier
this summer. Mr. Laber stated that he has
not seen the actual design to date, but
has explained this problem to his engi-
neer as well. He mentioned that in visiting
with them, they have suggested the wider
footing with a double wall as well as pin-
ning the fabric back to the footings to
properly secure the underlayment.
Mr. McCormick added that with the larger
footing, it may not be necessary to tie the
underlayment back with the additional re-
inforcement. He stressed that this is only
a thought as he would need to review the
specific design to make any formal rec-
Mr. Laber stated for the record, that this
redesign is going to cost his company
more money, but not the City.
Matt then suggested that Mr. McCormick
review the plans and that SPN's time be
compensated by Mr. Laber, stressing that
the design shall be as good if not better
than it was originally designed.
McCormick then pointedly asked Laber
as to a timeframe for the design and
work. Laber stated that the design is ex-
pected to be completed by the end of the
week and he would like to begin work on
the retaining wall & rip rap by early next
week. He stated that they anticipate one
week in order to complete the driveways
and then they would proceed directly onto
the retaining wall.
Mayor Vetter asked about Laber's confi-
dence with the new design and if he is
willing to grant the City an extended war-
ranty for the work on that section. Laber
stated that he is unsure if the block com-
pany provides extended warranty, but re-
assured that the new design will exceed
that of the original design.
Following a lengthy discussion, motion
was made by Henrie, seconded by Lar-
son to authorize the Street Cmt. to review
and approve the retaining wall design
presented by Laber's engineer contingent
upon McCormick's review and recom-
mendation. Motion carried.
Mr. Laber then asked for any additional
questions from the Council or attendees.
Matt noted that there are two property
owners along N. Wood Ave. that need to
get their vehicles out in the very near fu-
ture: Dwilyn Hook and Virginia Wolden.
Jerry Kroetch asked about their plans for
the area around Scotchman Ìndustries?
Mr. Laber reviewed the construction plan,
noting that they will be starting at Scotch-
man's and moving south.
Mr. McCormick also noted that the con-
crete portion from US Hwy 14 south on N.
Wood Ave. has met the 4,000 pounds per
square inch (psi) and can be driven on.
(The road has been opened to trucks for
deliveries and shipping to and from
Scotchman, Ìnc.) Ìt has been recom-
mended that regular vehicle traffic not be
allowed here until the asphalt is installed
and sufficiently set around that area.
Matt went on to inquire with Laber about
the boulevard fill they are planning to uti-
lize. He noted that the material that has
been installed to date is full of rocks or
other unacceptable materials such as old
seals, metal, and cast off machinery
Ìt was noted by McCormick that the top
soil material must meet the contract spec-
ifications. He suggested that Laber dis-
cuss this with the on-site engineer
tomorrow before proceeding further with
the placement of top soil and/or hydro-
Laber also noted that they will be hydro-
seeding the grass boulevards areas,
stressing that in order for the grass to
grow, it must be watered.
Mayor, Council and those in attendance
thanked Mr. Laber as he left the meeting,
stating that he hopes to be finished with
project ahead of schedule.
Council reviewed an inquiry regarding a
potential vacate for a portion of Division
St. which is platted at fifty foot (50') in
width, running east of N. Wood Ave.
FO Van Lint advised that she was con-
tacted recently regarding this portion that
is located between Don and Jolene
Haynes' and Jerry and Karen Kroetch's
properties on N. Wood Ave. The inquiry
was whether or not this portion was for-
mally vacated as in 1999 a vacate petition
was drafted. To date, records indicate that
the petition was never filed nor was a
public hearing held ÷ the vacation was
never formally presented or acted upon
by the City of Philip.
The question was posed that if a new va-
cate petition is presented and approved,
who will be responsible for the curb and
gutter assessment for this portion. Ìt was
noted that the property will still belong to
the City until a vacation is approved.
Jerry Kroetch noted that this arose follow-
ing the installation of the new curb and
gutter. He reported that the fill is two to
three feet above the curb line from their
driveway to the corner of Haynes's south-
west corner and in turn, he would like to
grade the area to match that of the curb
line. Unfortunately though, the property
belongs to the City.
Mr. Kroetch also admitted that a portion
of the rear yard improvements are al-
ready imposing on the City's land, but re-
assured that he was granted a building
permit for the work.
Mayor Vetter questioned if Kroetch is lim-
ited to doing dirt work without the vaca-
Matt stated that he is in favor of vacating
that portion so that formal decisions can
be made by the City and property owners.
Matt then questioned Kroetch about the
potential vacation request, inquiring who
would take ownership of the property and
how much. Ìt was noted that during a va-
cation, the property is usually split in half
with the abutting property owners each
acquiring the same amount.
FO Van Lint also noted that with a vaca-
tion, it is easier to vacate to the end of the
lot, which in this case would be the end of
Haynes's property. Ìn turn, this would also
include a portion of the street going to
Sam Koedam.
Mr. Kroetch stated that in conversations
he has had with Hayneses, they have in-
dicated that if they want any portion of the
potential vacate, it would be five to ten
FO Van Lint explained the vacate
process; noting that the first step would
be for the affected property owners to de-
termine the exact amount of footages
they will be requesting to acquire. Follow-
ing that decision, a petition can be drafted
and once that is filed a public hearing can
be scheduled for the Council's consider-
Council was then asked to make a deci-
sion regarding the curb and gutter as-
sessment for this property should the
vacate be pursued.

Matt stated that it was opinion that the
City had originally planned on paying for
this portion of curb and gutter and does
not see why it should not remain that way.
Following discussion, motion was made
by Matt, seconded by Gartner to cover
the curb and gutter expenses for that por-
tion of Division St. even if it is vacated
prior to the special assessment roll being
filed. Motion carried.
Council reviewed the following building
permits: Rick & Peggy Palecek ÷ renew
sidewalk permit approved 08/06/12.
Motion was made by Matt, seconded by
Gartner to approve Palecek's permit as
presented. Motion carried.
Mr. McCormick presented and reviewed
the Summary of Preliminary Analysis for
the Hydraulic Study completed for SD
Hwy 14 and Tracts A, B and C. The study
was completed in order to determine if
the State needs to maintain their water re-
tention easements within this area; and,
any potential impacts if Dale Morrison
would construct an access road within the
drainage basin area.
McCormick reported that the scope of
work performed within the study related
to the existing storage basin area (WPA
dam), the drainage pipes and the amount
of runoff crossing SD Hwy 14, entering
the basin. The analysis only takes into
consideration the assumption that the up-
stream dams are filled to capacity, not an
in-depth study.
McCormick also elaborated on the up-
stream dams, noting that an in-depth
study was not completed at these sites,
but it could be accomplished if the City so
chooses. He noted that these were omit-
ted because of the previously discussed
liability to the City. For example, installing
fill on top of the dam grade could be ben-
eficial, but then the City would be held re-
sponsible for the dam and any future
McCormick then went on to review the
evaluation of the 10 and 25-year storm
events for this area. The area was re-
ported as being sufficient in size for 10-
year event while the 25-year event would
exceed the current capacity of this area.
McCormick referenced the impact of Mor-
rison's proposed access road through the
area and suggested Morrison provide an
exact detailed amount of the fill. For in-
stance, according to their study, the de-
tention area of the storage basin is 8,042
cubic yards, whereas Mr. Morrison's US
Army Corps of Engineers 404 Permit ap-
plication is for 8,122 cubic yards of fill.
Ìn summary, McCormick reported that
they would recommend maintaining the
detention basin area as is. As for the
easements, they would not recommend
abandoning them, but as noted, this
would be at the discretion of the SD DOT.
Matt questioned if the City should con-
sider removing a portion of the fill or the
trees in the basin area? McCormick re-
ported that the topography considered
the current size of the retention basis,
omitting the trees. Ìn turn, it would not im-
pact their findings.
McCormick then expressed his apologies
for the delay in the report, noting that
since this was not on today's agenda, no
Council action can be taken. Ìn turn, he
would ask that the Council consider any
additional information they would like
added to the report. For example, the re-
port can be expanded to include maps
and other data utilized as a basis for the
Matt questioned how much expense SPN
& Assoc.'s has invested into the report as
presented. McCormick confirmed that to
date with the topographic and hydraulic
data collection, the City's estimated ex-
pense is $5,000.
Discussion relative to the findings of the
study ensued with the Council. Different
options to address the concerns were
noted, expressing concern of impacting
personal properties downstream if the re-
tention basin is not maintained as is.
Ìt was noted that a copy of the full report
will need to be submitted to the State
since they had originally requested the
study in order to determine if their water
retention easements can be abandoned.
No action was taken.
With nothing further, Mayor Vetter de-
clared the public meeting adjourned at
6:05 p.m.

Last Wednesday night, Karyl
Sandal, Kay Ainslie, Nancy Neville
and Rasma Mangulis went to the
Rapid City Civic Center to hear Im-
maculee Ilibagiza speak. This lady
survived the 1994 Rwandan
genecide and her story is so very in-
teresting. She speaks of uncondi-
tional love and forgiveness
wherever she goes. She is the au-
thor of the book, "Left to Tell" and
there will be a movie made about
her story.
Bill and Karyl Sandal were
among the crowd in Wall Sunday
for the Stephanie Williams Memo-
rial Rodeo. Prior to the rodeo, there
was a church service at the rodeo
grounds by the Wall Evangelical
Free Church. The worship team
consisted of Cory Elshere (guitar
and vocal), Mason Sandal (guitar)
Anita Sandal, Dianna Kammerer
and Becky Smith (vocal).
Jim and Lana Elshere also at-
tended the events in Wall Sunday.
In the afternoon, they drove to the
Rapid City airport where they met
Jim's cousin, Sandy Dollins, Paris,
Texas. Sandy plans to be with her
aunt, Joy Elshere, who is sched-
uled for surgery in Rochester
Wednesday, September 18.
Kathy Hanrahan and son Pre-
ston spent the weekend with family
at Gregory for a wedding.
Milesville folks at the funeral for
Mary Deis Friday were Jim and
Lana Elshere and Paul, Donna and
Tina Staben.
Dusti Berry spent the weekend
at home with her family, the Dave
and Tonya Berrys. Dusti is in
school at Mitchell Tech.
Supper guests at our house on
Friday the 13th were Bryan and
Sharon Olivier and Earl, Jodi,
Rachel and Sarah Parsons. The oc-
casion was Bart's birthday.
The area farmers and ranchers
are busy with the usual fall work –
hauling hay, cutting silage, plant-
ing wheat, preconditioning calves
and harvesting the millet and
sorgum. Soon it will be time to com-
bine the corn. We have been
blessed with enough rain this year
to make all of this possible.
Milesville News|Janice Parsons • 544-3315
Greetings from cool, sunny, breezy
northeast Haakon County! These last
couple of days, it has felt like some-
one flipped a switch, and we went
from summer to fall! I like the cooler
temperatures, but it lets me know
that winter won't be far behind – and
as you probably know, I am not a fan
of winter. Oh well, once winter is
done spring will be here, and I love
I have noticed that the birds are
bunching up, and the geese have
been flying overhead. The yard and
garden are beginning to look a little
tired, and with good reason – they
have both been putting on quite a dis-
play this year. I'm still harvesting
beans, zucchini, tomatoes, cucum-
bers, carrots, beets, leeks, can-
taloupe, onions, brussel sprouts, and
even a couple of butternut squash
(with lots more to come)! With all
these fresh vegetables, there is no ex-
cuse for us to not be healthy! Speak-
ing of zucchini, it has been a good
week for zucchini gifting. Our daugh-
ter, Jennifer, was at a meeting in
Pierre last week, so when I went to
town I took her a bunch of fresh veg-
etables. A couple of the gals who were
at the meeting with her wanted some
zucchini also, because their gardens
had gotten hailed out. What a lucky
deal for me! Then two of my brothers
visited over the weekend, so I got to
send some zucchini with them! Score!
It has been a busy time in the com-
munity – folks are putting up feed,
planting winter wheat, working cat-
tle, moving hay, getting ready to har-
vest the milo and corn, just generally
trying to get the work done before the
snow flies. We have had abundant
crops in our part of the world this
year, and we don't want them to go to
Nels and Dorothy Paulson have
been busy with fall work, but they
took some time to play a bit over the
weekend. Nels and Dorothy, along
with their friends, Dale and Myrna
Hartmann, traveled to Jamestown
Saturday to attend a surprise 75th
birthday celebration for their
brother-in-law, Frank Bennett. They
stayed overnight and returned home
Sunday afternoon.
Billy and Arlyne Markwed recently
returned from a trip to Missoula to
visit their daughter, Kim, and her
husband, Jeff Marso. They left on
September 3, going as far as
Spearfish. They spent the night with
their daughter and son-in-law, Cindy
and Bruce Bresee. Arlyne said they
took some back roads on their trip, so
they got to see a lot of beautiful coun-
try. They went to Dillon, Mont., and
had lunch with Joyce McGinley, for-
merly of Hayes. They stayed in Mis-
soula until the 11th, then started for
home. They spent a night with the
Bresee's on the return trip, arriving
back at the ranch on the 12th. They
had a wonderful visit and great trip.
Friday, Billy and Arlyne had great-
grandkids Dylan, Kori and Kyler, be-
cause their grandson, T.J. Gabriel,
and his wife, Jeanine, had some busi-
ness in the eastern part of the state.
Friday night, Cindy and Bruce Bre-
see came and spent the night. Satur-
day, Cindy and Bruce headed for
Sioux Falls for a family wedding, and
they took T.J. and Jeanine's children
with them, transferring them to T.J.
and Jeanine in Sioux Falls. Billy and
Arlyne attended the Relay for Life
events in Wall Saturday evening.
Kelly Briggs and children were vis-
itors and lunch guests at Dick and
Gene Hudson's last Thursday. The
kids got to help pick some vegetables
from Gene's bountiful garden, and
Kelly went home with a bunch of
beautiful tomatoes. I understand the
tomatoes are now in jars, ready to be
enjoyed this winter! Another big
event at the Briggs' home this week
was a party to celebrate daughter
Taylor's second birthday! Happy
birthday to her! Family was on hand
to help make the day special.
Gene Hudson has been doing a lot
of canning, also. I saw her pantry not
long ago – lots of pretty shining jars,
full of wonderful food. Her family and
guests will enjoy the bounty! They
have been cutting silage at Hudson's,
and it has been a rather slow process
because of the height of the crop and
the wet conditions. I guess that is a
nice problem to have. Gene served
lunch after church Sunday.
Coreen Roseth said she and Julian
have been enjoying grandchildren.
They kept Adam and Jodi Roseth's
sons over the weekend. And starting
on Tuesday, Coreen will be staying at
Vance and Kristin (Roseth) Martin's
home, taking care of the grandchil-
dren while Vance and Kristin have a
few days away. Whew! Coreen will
need a nap after all this grandmother
Lola Roseth spent part of last week
attending an emergency medical
technician conference. Then Friday,
Lola, her sister, Linda, and Lu
Roseth headed to Las Vegas, enjoying
a trip that was postponed from ear-
lier this summer.
Clark and Carmen Alleman were
in Pierre Friday night to attend a
supper celebrating the 50th wedding
anniversary of their friends, Dick and
Mary Carter. Sunday, Carmen, her
daughter Kelly Nelson, and grand-
daughter, Morgan, went to Rapid
City. Carmen said silage cutting is
complete at their place – always nice
to be able to check one more task off
the list!
Bill and Polly Bruce had a rela-
tively quiet week at their place. Sat-
urday, Polly spent the day canning,
and Sunday they attended church in
Midland followed by a potluck meal.
The group then worked on their float
for the upcoming free day parade in
Midland. Tuesday, they were headed
to Mobridge for an eye appointment.
Friday night, Frank and Shirley
Halligan went to Faith to see the foot-
ball game between Faith and Sully
Buttes. Faith won 24-20 after losing
their quarterback to a knee injury
during the game. They are 3-0 on the
season. Saturday, they met a group of
friends for supper and the concert at
the Grand Opera House in Pierre.
The concert was part of the Dakota
Western Heritage Festival being held
at the Expo Center in Ft. Pierre.
Kenny Putnam was one of the per-
formers and he is well worth watch-
ing! What a talent!
Jodi Roseth, her daughter, Bobbi,
and her cousin, Katie, spent last
weekend in Sioux Falls. They met
Jodi's mother there, and the ladies
had a "girls" weekend! Jodi said she
is now done with her garden, having
canned up the last of the veggies.
Good for her!
Max and Joyce Jones have mostly
been at home this past week. They
have been busy buttoning up projects,
preparing for their upcoming trip to
Washington state. They will be at-
tending a celebration of life memorial
service for Max's uncle who passed
away recently. Hope they have a
great trip.
Ray Neuhauser attended the foot-
ball game in Pierre last Friday. Sat-
urday, Nancy spent part of the day
babysitting great-grandkids. In the
afternoon, Nancy and Ray took in
part of the Western Heritage Festival
as well as a concert at the opera
house in Pierre. Late Saturday night,
Nancy got word that her brother-in-
law had passed away in California –
my sympathy to Nancy and family.
Nancy's granddaughter, Jackie,
Yankton, will be spending a couple of
days with her this week while she is
in Pierre for meetings. Nancy and
family have been busy finalizing
plans for the Sterling family rodeo
which will be held next weekend in
Ft. Pierre. Nancy's family will begin
arriving Thursday – I'm sure it will
be a fun, busy time.
Kevin Neuhauser spent most of the
week getting the winter wheat
planted. He went to Pierre Monday
night to a Masonic Lodge meeting.
Mary Neuhauser is doing well after
her recent knee surgery, and she is
currently doing some therapy to get
the knee back in working order. Big
news for the Neuhauser family is that
Kevin's sister and brother-in-law,
Nina and Lynn Nachtigall, will be
moving to Belle Fourche in the near
future. They have sold their home in
Cheyenne and are moving back to
South Dakota. It will be great to have
them closer to "home."
Lee Briggs kept busy cutting silage
most of last week, here and there, be-
fore breaking down Sunday. Parts are
coming today, so they should be able
to get the cutter rolling again. While
the cutter was out of commission, Lee
planted some winter wheat for Nels
Paulson. Mary Briggs worked from
home last Friday. Later in the after-
noon, she went to Pierre to attend a
small get-together at Lil Briggs' home
in honor of Cole Briggs' and Cattibrie
Riggle's birthdays. Mary said Cattib-
rie turned 18 and Cole is much older.
The group enjoyed chicken and
coleslaw, and for dessert they had
Cole's famous "liquid nitrogen ice
cream!" Mary said the ice cream is al-
ways so good, and it was the highlight
of the evening. Those attending the
gathering were Rea and Clay Riggle
and their children, Chancy, Cattibrie
and Kinsey. Cattibrie's friend, Alex,
was also there. Austin Briggs and
Keith Briggs also joined the group. Lil
enjoyed all the company! After the
party, Rea and Clay headed to White-
wood to help Rea's sister, Keva, move
to a nice place just north of Bear
Butte. Keva is a country girl through
and through, and she is thrilled to be
living in the country again. Cattibrie,
Alex and Kinsey helped Shad Riggle
work cattle Saturday, dropping Kin-
sey off with Grandma Mary before
heading out to Whitewood to help
with Keva's move. I visited Mary
Sunday morning, bringing her the
gift of some cats to help with the mice
at their shop. We enjoyed a cup of cof-
fee and a nice visit. Mary was in the
process of removing wallpaper and
getting ready to paint her bedroom –
an ambitious project! I should also
say that when I went to Briggs' place,
I saw their "pet" antelope – still run-
ning free, evading the hunters.
