KNH Carnival
 The Kadoka Nursing Home willbe holding what they hope to calltheir first annual carnival on Sun-day, August 12 from 1-3 p.m. alongthe west side of the facility.The event will be complete funfor all ages including a number of games and lots of food.Included in the carnival will bea cake walk. The nursing home isaccepting donations for the cakewalk. You may call Ruby or Cathyat 837-2270.And, you won’t want to miss outon the dunk tank were nursinghome employees, including RubySanftner, will be on the board.This fundraiser is to help raisemoney for the resident activitiesaccount.Gardeners may be noticing theeffects of our recent high tempera-tures, according to Dr. Rhoda Bur-rows, Extension Horticulturist."Hot dry winds can also exacer-bate the combined effect of heatstress and water stress, as it can bedifficult to deliver sufficient waterto the plant under those condi-tions," Dr. Burrows said.The following are some of the ef-fects Burrows said gardeners mayobserve on vegetables:Tomatoes: Ideal temperaturesfor growing tomatoes are 75 to 80degrees. Temperatures over 100 de-grees F can prevent fruit set, andtemperatures in the 90's can alsoprevent fruit set if nights are warm(over 70 degrees) or the humidity ishigh. On ripening fruit exposed tostrong sun, sunburn can occur, andtemperatures over 85 degrees de-crease development of red color inthe fruit. Heat also tends to in-crease blossom end rot because thefruit expands too rapidly for theplant to take up calcium quicklyenough to distribute it to the ex-panding fruit. Uneven wateringwill also result in the same prob-lem, as the plant needs moisture inorder to take up and move calciumto the fruit.Squash: High temperatures(over 86 degrees) accelerate flowerclosing (mid to late morning), sopollination must be accomplishedby bees early in the morning.Squash and pumpkin flowers mustbe pollinated within a few hours of opening, or will fall off the plant.Peppers: Drought stress early inthe season decreases leaf area andfruit yield, especially during blos-soming. The optimal temperaturefor growing bell peppers is 72 de-grees; hot peppers can withstandsomewhat higher temperatures.Temperatures above 90 can stopfruit set altogether on bell peppers,especially under dry conditions,and even temperatures in the 80scan decrease yield by 50%.Potatoes: Drought can cause tu-bers to crack, resulting in mis-shapen tubers at harvest.Cucumbers: Heat and droughtincrease bitterness.Green beans: Fruit set of beanswill be reduced or stopped alto-gether at temperatures over 85 de-grees, with some variation incultivars. Bush-type (as opposed topole) beans have fairly shallow rootsystems, so gardeners need to becareful to keep their soil moist.Smaller-seeded cultivars germi-nate better in warm (over 80 de-grees) soils; larger-seeded cultivarsin cooler (54 degree) soils.Sweet corn: Corn is one of themost heat-tolerant vegetables, butis still sensitive during silking. Theprimary concern with hot tempera-tures is to maintain water supplyto the roots to ensure good "tip-fill"of the ears.Lettuce: Many types of lettucewill not germinate when soil tem-peratures are over 80 to 85 degrees,so late summer plantings for a fallcrop must be grown from trans-plants germinated in a cooler place.Broccoli & Cauliflower: Temper-atures over 80 degrees disrupthead development, leading to smallscattered bunches of florets. Waterstress can cause the heads to de-velop too quickly, with similar re-sults.What can a gardener do to ame-liorate the effects of high tempera-tures?"Some tomato growers in otherareas of the country are resortingto shadecloth or even mist systemsto cool the plants" Burrows said."Although we generally encouragedrip systems to avoid plant dis-eases and to conserve water, shortperiods of overhead watering maybe beneficial to cool the plants dur-ing the hottest hours of the day, es-pecially when humidity levels arelow. However, avoid having wateron the foliage for more than a fewhours at a time, as longer periodsof leaf wetness allow diseases to in-vade."For more resources during thistime of drought, visitiGrow.org/drought.

Member Dawn Ras-mussen was present via speakerphone and Mark Williams was alsopresent via speaker phone duringpart of the meeting.The meeting was held to discusshousing needs for the elementaryprincipal.Superintendent Jamie Hermannstated that several property own-ers had been contacted to inquireabout the possibility of renting ahouse for the principal and his fam-ily. The search for a rental propertyhas not been successful.Elementary Principal Jeff Ne-mecek stated that even thoughthere are several homes for sale atthe present time in Kadoka, pur-chasing one is not an option due tothe fact that his current house islisted on the market and has notbeen sold yet.Considering the situation, theschool board was proposing the op-tion of purchasing a house andrenting it to the principal.Several people in attendancestated that they felt the schoolshould not be in the business of purchasing houses for rent andconcerned with the property beingremoved from the tax roll.The proper notice of the specialmeeting and posting of the agendawas questioned, as well as the ex-ecutive session on the agenda forthe purpose of marketing and pric-ing strategies.Hermann stated that the schoolattorney recommended that theboard enter executive sessionunder that reason.After a twenty minute executivesession, the board returned to opensession with no action taken.

Church Calendar 
Psalm 25:3-5Waiting for God's timing is neither passive nor idle--it takes discipline and commitment. I can think of fourbasic requirements for successful waiting.Faith. The Lord's ways and timing are nothing likeours (Isa. 55:8-9). From a human standpoint, He usually does things in a totally different way than weexpect. But as we trust Him more, we'll discover that His approach isn't so strange after all. And whenwe live in harmony with God's will, His timing starts to make sense.Humility. To wait for the Lord, you must be convinced of your need for Him. Submission to His divinewill requires humility--you cannot charge ahead with your own plans and at the same time be fully sur-rendered to God.Patience. Are you willing to remain in your current position until you receive clear divine direction?Pausing for clarity from God does not mean that you disengage and allow circumstances to fall apartaround you. Waiting upon the Lord is a deliberate decision that requires patience.Courage. Waiting for God often takes courage, especially when there is pressure to act. If you're notcareful, you might stop listening to the Lord and follow other advice. So keep your ear attuned to thevoice of Almighty God, and you won t go wrong.Waiting upon the Lord is one of the wisest, most important decisions we make in life. And contrary topopular assumptions, it is an active endeavor that requires faith, humility, patience, and courage. Whenyou rely upon God and wait for His timing, the various facets of life fall into place.

Creative Breakfast Ideas
Since you were a young child,you’ve probably heard someone tellyou that breakfast was the mostimportant meal of the day. Theywere correct. We all “fast” for eightto 12 hours after going all nightwithout food. Eating breakfastserves to “break the fast” or refuelyour body.Breakfast should provide aboutone-fourth of your daily recom-mended intake of calories, vita-mins and minerals. For children,this means about 400-600 caloriesshould be consumed at breakfast.Children who eat breakfast in-crease their nutrition. They aremore likely to meet their dailyneeds for calcium, iron, riboflavin,vitamins A and D.Kids who eat a healthy break-fast regularly tend to have betterconcentration and are more pre-pared to learn. They are morealert, have fewer behavioral issuesand are more involved at school.They are also not as tired or irrita-ble.Children often skip breakfastbecause they are busy rushing toschool or they aren’t hungry in themorning. It’s difficult to replacenutrients missed at breakfast, sokids should be encouraged to takefoods that they can eat on the wayto school.By thinking outside of the box,you can prepare breakfast usingsimple and time efficient methods.Try these tips to keep breakfastfun for the whole family:Make breakfast smoothies bycombining orange juice, bananas,strawberries and blueberries in ablender and blend until smooth. Add a little low-fat milk or fat-freeplain yogurt to your ingredients toincrease calcium and protein.Use a whole wheat tortilla towrap around scrambled eggs andgrated cheese in the morning orprepare them the night before. Addvariety to your wrap by addingblack beans, diced tomatoes, orturkey sausage.For no-cook breakfast ideas trya fruit salad and a granola bar orhalf of a whole-wheat bagel withlow-fat cream cheese and straw-berry slices. Make yogurt parfaitsthe night before by layering low-fat yogurt, fruit and granola in aclear cup; store them in the refrig-erator.Do you have a plan for thosemornings when you are in a reallybig rush? Grab an apple, a stringcheese and a few whole-wheatcrackers for eating on the run.Eating breakfast helps you per-form and feel better. Good plan-ning for breakfast can help youincrease your total nutrients forthe day. Go to http://www.meals-matter.org/ for easy, online healthymeal planning tools.

Connie Constipation is an olderwoman who has controlled almosteverything throughout her life ex-cept for her bowels. It seems theharder she’s tried to make thebowels move, the more constipatedor irregular she’s become. She’s al-ways sought for the right laxative,and is now using “herbal lighten-ing” without a lot of success. Shecommonly feels bloated, waitingfor the call, often sitting on thecommode for long periods of time,pushing too hard, and then she’sloose as a goose having tripled herlaxative dose. Connie is one frus-trated woman.The causes for constipation arenumerous to include too little ex-ercise, too few fiber foods, internalscars from previous surgery, diver-ticulosis, low thyroid, and evencolon cancer. Certainly everyonewith constipation needs to con-sider first seeing a doctor for theproper evaluation.But I believe the most commoncause for constipation around hereis the long-term use of the stimu-lant type of laxatives such as Ex-lax, Correctol, stool softener WITHLAXATIVE, Senna, and manyherbal type combinations.Realize that abruptly stoppingstimulant laxatives causes re-bound constipation, and thus de-pendency. Many people have aproblem perpetuated by the verydrug they use to treat it. This isthe reason to gradually taper off these bowel irritants, and thenavoid them in the future.Good bowel health starts withexercise, a diet of fruit, vegetables,fiber foods; and then if needed byadding ground golden flax seed. Isuggest buying it whole and grind-ing the flax in a coffee grinder, (½cup at a time prevents it turningrancid,) then daily mixing one ortwo tablespoons with breakfast ce-real, yogurt, or applesauce.If an individual is still havingproblems I advise plain stool sof-teners WITHOUT LAXATIVE.Start with one to three capsulesonce or twice a day, adjusting thedose accordingly. If necessary, res-cue with over-the-counter polyeth-ylene glycol (generic MiraLax,)milk of magnesia, or sorbitol.These are effective and do notcause rebound.If she exercises daily, eats theright food with enough fiber, andavoids laxatives, then Connie willbe back in control.

In order to complywith state and federal regulationsthe roof would have to be replaced.Their retirement budget could notafford that. The elderly lady can-vassed the neighborhood seekingneighbors’ signatures to justify a“variance.” We left Nebraskamonths later – permit still pend-ing.Other incidents of micro man-agement by regulation involve “setbacks” when a modification or im-provement permit is applied for. If an existing structure is too close tothe property line moving or de-struction of the offending structurecould be required before any im-provement is permitted. This had anegative effect on several propertyimprovement plans I have heard of.If the plan is adopted our new vo-cabulary will include more wordslike “population densities” and“zoning” which could require cer-tain types of development only indesignated areas.“Compliance” is another greatword that could get very important.That places pricey architects, envi-ronmental engineers and lawyersbetween property owners walletsand building permits.Presently Kadoka building per-mits are in the hands of our electedofficials and a up or down vote.Under a comprehensive plan per-mits or variances could takemonths as appointed state officialssteeped in a multitude of regula-tions govern city and private prop-erty rights.There is an old saying, “govern-ment that governs least governsbest.”/s/ Glenn T.

Perhaps some believethis would solve local problems.Others feel the council could be in-sulated from law suits when mov-ing against a property owner. Theydo not realize that these problemswill be “grandfathered.” Until prop-erty owners seek permits to modifytheir property they cannot be reg-ulated by state or federal govern-ment absent health or safetyconcerns. Those too could becomelegal issues.One example of grandfatheringinvolved an older couple whomoved a surplus railroad depot andremodeled it into an very attractiveretirement home near Ogallala,Nebraska.

Producersmust file an application with theirlocal FSA office prior to conductingany haying or grazing activity.Under CRP emergency haying andgrazing provisions, haying andgrazing may begin on August 2nd;however, haying may not exceed August 31, 2012, and grazing maynot exceed September 30, 2012.Currently there are approximatelyone million acres of CRP availablefor emergency haying and grazingin South Dakota.On July 11, 2012, Secretary Vil-sack announced that the 25 percentCRP payment reduction will be re-duced to 10 percent for all 2012emergency haying and grazing au-thorizations in order to providegreater flexibility to farmers andranchers in response to the droughtconditions.Under emergency haying andgrazing provisions, producers arereminded that the same CRPacreage cannot be both hayedand/or grazed at the same time.For example, if 50 percent of a fieldor contiguous field is hayed, the re-maining unhayed 50 percent can-not be grazed; it must remainunhayed and ungrazed for wildlifehabitat purposes.In an effort to proactively serveSouth Dakota farmers and ranch-ers, the South Dakota Farm Serv-ice Agency and the South DakotaDepartment of Agriculture are en-couraging producers to utilize theon-line hay finder services avail-able via www.hayexchange.comand www.haybarn.com.For more information and to re-quest approval for emergency hay-ing and grazing of CRP acrescontact your local FSA office.

O’Bryan Fun Nightresults from theO’Byan’s arena
I fed the birds on the way homefrom church today. As I drove downthe road, I occasionally tossed apiece of bread Frisbee-style out theopen window on the passenger sideof the pickup. I figured the spar-rows, meadowlarks and other fly-ing creatures deserved a treat. Itwas also a good way to get rid of some unwanted bread.As it happened, I had stored anolder loaf of bread in the freezerover a month ago planning tomake some bread pudding out of itfor the coffee time after church.Well, yesterday, I dug that loaf back out, thawed it, and collectedthe utensils needed to make breadpudding. Unfortunately, I’d origi-nally left the bread out too long be-fore freezing it so the third andfourth slices had big splotches of green mold. So much for breadpudding. Think of something elseto make for church. Some browniesmight do the trick, but what to dowith moldy bread?In the past, that would havebeen simple. Feed it to the chick-ens. Alas, at present we have nochickens so that won’t work. Wedo, however, have a whole prairiefull of every kind of bird imagina-ble, and all of them probably havedigestive systems that wouldn’t bebothered by the odd bit of bread or,in fact, lots of other stuff that isonly slightly digestible by humans.That’s one of the neater thingsabout chickens. You can feed themalmost anything, and they’ll thriveon it and, what’s more, constructeggs out of it. In the past, I’ve hadfood go so bad that I was afraid tofeed it to the cats for fear of mak-ing them sick, but flying creaturesdon’t seem adversely affected inthe least. I give you buzzards as anexample. They actually crave stuff so rotten that, if we could even getit down, it wouldn’t stay there orelse it would probably make usdeathly ill. Oh for the digestivesystem of a buzzard. You wouldn’tever have to wash dishes or worryin the slightest about sanitation orthe wholesomeness of food. Such adeal.Bird watching, incidentally, israther enjoyable. I am supposed tobe the authority on these creaturessince I took a semester of birdwatching (ornithology) in college.It did help me to identify the morecommon species correctly most of the time, but there is always therare one that sends me running forone of several guidebooks. We alsohave usually had a bird feeder setup on the deck or somewhere closein order to attract birds to watch.It’s rather fun. If wife Corinnespots an unknown variety, she’lloften ask me to come look and tellher what it is. If I don’t happen toknow, I usually just say it’s proba-bly a duck, which, as you mightimagine, yields me a look of scorn.Corinne somehow doesn’t thinkthat paddle-footed ducks are likelyto frequent a bird feeder wherethere are only skinny little rooststo perch on.We don’t have a regular feederset up right now, but earlier thisyear we enjoyed feeding the grack-les by a different method. Theseblack fellows were often seen out-side our back window so one day Idecided to see how they likedbread. I tossed four old pieces outfor them. They were delighted.One fellow practically jumped upand down in excitement. Hestarted carrying it off bit by bit towho knows where. Maybe he had afamily to support or something.Sometimes he would be joined byfriends who were quick to get thepicture. They, too, would hop rightin and help themselves.At present, the black guysaren’t around much since theyprobably have their offspringraised and are all flying togetherin a flock somewhere else. Thesparrows are ever with us, of course, but Corinne won’t let mefeed them right now since shewants them to keep the grasshop-per population in check. They’vebeen doing that. Quite often yousee a little fellow working on ahuge hopper that’s bigger than itshead. Eventually, most of the hop-per is gone and the bird is lookingaround for more. Perhaps he’seaten all the tasty parts and wantsa fresh kill. I’m not sure what’sgoing on or why, but the process isentertaining no matter what. Still,the prohibition against feeding thesparrows made me look elsewherefor a different method of moldy-bread disposal. The road ditchesseemed the answer and thus theFrisbee tosses out the window.Somewhere, right now, a bird isprobably thanking me. He or she isentirely welcome.
