Read James 1:1-4When people confide to me that they are praying forpatience, I often ask what else they're doing to acquirea calm and gentle heart. Patience isn't so much some-thing believers receive as it is an attribute that theydevelop over time and through experience.Think of patience as a muscle that you have to use in order to see it build. To that end, believers shouldrecognize difficulty as an opportunity to flex their patience. The human instinct is to cry out to God inbewilderment when tribulation comes knocking. We blame. We resist. We complain. What we don't do issay, "Thank You, Father--it's time to grow in patience!" People aren't trained to think that way, but ac-cording to the Bible, that is exactly how Christians are to respond.James tells us to consider trials a joy (1:2). But we often fail at this, don't we? Humanly speaking,praising the Lord for tribulation is unnatural. However, doing so begins to make sense to believers whenthey cling to God's promise that good comes from hardship (Rom. 8:28). We are not waiting on the Lordin vain. We can praise Him for the solution He will bring, the lives He will change, or the spiritual fruitHe will develop in us.Accepting hardship as a means of growth is a radical concept in this world. Even more extreme is thebeliever who praises the Lord for the storm. But God's followers have cause to rejoice. Tribulation in-creases our patience so that we can stand firm on His promises and await His good timing.

She gradu-ated from Mission High School in1932.On June 1, 1935, she was unitedin marriage to Garold Miller atSpringview, Nebraska. They weremarried just a few days short of 57years, when Garold passed away.To this union, there were four chil-dren born, Jacqueline “Jackie”,William, “Bill”, and twins, Jerryand Larry.Odetta spent her life as a home-maker for her family, housekeeperand child care giver. She was afriend to all. She was a quilt maker,making hundreds of them for fam-ily and friends. She loved to em-broider, and in her later yearsmade over a hundred tea towelsets, as well as pillow case sets. Shegrew up watching her dad playbaseball and was an avid fan therest of her life.Odetta is survived by her chil-dren, Jackie (Jim) Kirkpatrick of Laurel, Nebraska; Bill Miller,Rapid City, South Dakota; JerryMiller of Rapid City, South Dakota;and Larry (Jeannette) Miller of Kadoka, South Dakota. 11 grand-children, 28 great-grandchildren,30 great-great-grandchildren,along with numerous step-grand,step-great-grand, and step-great-great-grandchildren, a sister,Blanche McCoy of Springview, Ne-braska; along with nieces, nephewsand their families.She was preceded in death byher parents, her husband, sisters,Dorothy Hamilton and Doris Mil-lard; brother, Emmert Millard,granddaughter, Jeanette Allvin;great-grandsons, Kenneth Faith,Jr. and Josh Gershon; as well as agrandson-in-law.Graveside memorial serviceswere held on Monday, July 23,2012, at the Ainsworth Cemeteryin Ainsworth, Nebraska, with Pas-tor Gary Graesser officiating overthe service.Memorials were suggested to the Ainsworth Senior Center.Hoch Funeral Home of Ainsworth was in charge of thearrangements.Dear Editor,In the issue of the
dated July 19, 2012, the countycommissioners meeting of Monday,May 9 was addressed.First, that article may have leftsome with the impression that theHildebrand/Kujawa building onMain Street is in such poor condi-tion, that it would take $100,000 tomake it generally suitable to thepublic. Left out of the article wasthe fact that the building modifica-tions would be required to meetstrict CDB Grant requirements -requirements that would not neces-sarily be otherwise required fromthe county. As we know from rent-ing to both state and federal enti-ties for twenty years now,government requirements do notnecessarily make sense in a ruraltown such as ours. Nor do those re-quirements always have a positiveproperty value effect.Secondly, I would like to addressthe unfortunate situation wherethe county seems to have receivedestimates for work to be done in theCity of Kadoka, from two Philipcompanys. To my knowledge notone business from Jackson Countywas asked to provide either esti-mate. As a business owner in thecounty we pay taxes in, it’s difficultto understand why that would be.Respectfully,/s/ Colleen HildebrandPO Box 578Kadoka, SD 57543
Building modifica-tions required by the CDBG Grantwere not presented at the commis-sioner’s regular meeting.
