Reversing a decision made inJuly, the Haakon County Board of Commissioners enacted a burn banfor the county at their August 7meeting. At the July meeting, the boardopted to not enact the ban, notingthat they hoped people around thearea would be wise to not burn un-necessary items. While that holdstrue, there have been some in-stances in the past month that leadthem to changing their decision.Most notably was the recent roadconstruction employees throwinglit cigarettes on the ground.Haakon County Sheriff FredKoester said he would enforce itshould the commission issue theburn ban. Violation of the banwould be a Class 2 misdemeanor,he said, with a fine and up to 30days in jail.The commission agreed to pur-chase a structure to move to theRobb’s Flat highway departmentfacility for $17,500. This will allowthe highway department to betterutilize the site and serve HaakonCounty residents in that area.The old structure was declaredsurplus with no monetary value. Itwill be removed to make way forthe new structure.The board also approved the ex-penditure of funds to install a newwaterline and hookup to connectwith West River/Lyman-Jones.Dakota Mill and Grain represen-tatives Les Pearson, Philip locationmanager, Ron Mitzel, vice presi-dent procurement/controller andBart Banks, company attorney,met with the board regarding theHaakon County Regional Railroad Authority.Mitzel asked the board, alongwith the Philip City Council theprevious evening, to update themembers on the HCRRA. Mitzelsaid Dakota Mill and Grain ispreparing to expand their Philip fa-cility. The plan includes adding ad-ditional rail siding and four130,000 bushel bins for storage.Mitzel said for their corporationto enlarge the facility and apply forloans, they have to go through theHCRRA when they appear at theSouth Dakota State RailroadBoard meeting.Mitzel also asked that the com-mission approve a resolution sup-porting the Philip facility’s expan-sion. Mitzel said this would be pre-sented to the state board at theirmeeting in September.The HCRRA was organized in1993 with incorporation finalizedin January 1994.Koester noted his departmenthad obtained surplused law en-forcement light bars fromEllsworth Air Force Base at nocost. The board gave him approvalto have them installed by membersof the Philip Volunteer Fire De-partment, who will then keep theold light bars. Koester said costswould be minimal for brackets andwiring. Adele Harty, South Dakota StateUniversity cow/calf specialist at theRapid City Regional ExtensionCenter updated the board on theavailability of nitrate quick tests.She said she has done between 30and 40 of the tests in the HaakonCounty area so far. She noted pro-ducers can drop samples off at the4-H office in the courthouse. If theoffice is not open they can be left infront of the office door, Harty saidshe will be training some of thelocal veterinarians in how to do thetest.Sheryl Hansen, 4-H office assis-tant, noted that she had been noti-fied that the 4-H assistant in JonesCounty was resigning and that in-dividual was going to recommendto her board of commissioners tonot continue with the four county4-H program. Haakon County com-missioners will visit with theircounterparts in Jackson County todiscuss a possible two county op-tion, should Jones County followthrough on the suggestion.Mike Gebes, Philip, approachedthe board in regard to improvingthe Lakeside Estates Road. KennyNeville, Haakon County highwaysuperintendent, said he would visitwith other landowners in that area. A concern is that utilities are twofeet from the road edge andlandowners often mow right up tothe road’s edge.Heidi Burns gave her quarterlyreport for the county health nurseoffice and Women and Infants andChildren program. She said her of-fice continues to see increases invisit numbers. She also reported onher health presentations at thePhilip High School.The board approved a supple-ment to the emergency manage-ment budget in the amount of $14,895 to cover a premitigationdisaster update. Grant dollars areallocated to cover the cost, but havenot yet arrived. Annie Brunskill, director of theHaakon County library, informedthe board that a grant had comethrough for her to purchase newcomputers. She noted only eight ornine libraries in South Dakota re-ceived the grant.The board approved meeting at-tendance for various county offi-cials and employees, warrants,meeting minutes from July 3, withcorrections, and minutes from July25. They reviewed the veteranservice officer’s report and a leaseagreement for courthouse ten-nants.The board will meet in specialsession Tuesday, August 21, towork on the budget. Their next reg-ular meeting is Tuesday, Septem-ber 4.

Every night I was atthe basketball courts. I love the ex-treme aggression, the one-on-onefeel that can be in basketball. I waspretty excited that the coaching po-sition was open.”“I’ve always been a West Rivertype person. I like the small townatmosphere. Philip was the bestoption for me. And, I do have somefamily in the Black Hills; I want tostay close, but not too close. Every-one I’ve met has said that this is agreat place to be,” said Powell. “It’sa place of good people, parents whoare willing to help their kids learn.”Powell will be teaching twoclasses of biology, two classes of ad-vanced biology, physical scienceand chemistry.

“I thought about it, but I’m tiredof having long names,” said DaleMorrison concerning the D&T AutoParts store to be going into a newbuilding at the northeast corner of the Highway 14 and Highway 73intersection.As of August 1, Dale and TamiMorrison are the owners of theNAPA franchise in Philip. Thebusiness will move from the north-east corner of N. Center Avenueand Pine Street to where Murray’sCafe was located. Windows andother sections of the old buildingare already gone. After the com-plete demolition by the end of thisweek, the spot will be made readyfor a building of approximately3,000 square feet. The new NAPA store will actually be a bit furthernorth on the lot than was the oldbuilding.D. Morrison said he wanted to“keep the smaller businesses goingin Philip.” He had “thought aboutbuying it anyway, because I waslooking for something different todo.” He is hoping to have the newbuilding up and the businessmoved and in operation before win-ter. He plans on keeping the sameemployees. Morrison said that hemight not be the manager, but willbe the “overseer” of the NAPA busi-ness as well as his current busi-ness, Morrison’s Pit Stop.The new building will be moreaccessible inside, with more space.It will also be more accessible to getto than the old NAPA locationdown town. “It’s kind of hard topark a horse trailer down there,”said Morrison. He is “hoping thehighway gives us a little bit of busi-ness, too.”Depending on construction costs,the new one-level building will besteel or a ladder frame. An openhouse for the new building and re-located business will be planned asthe opening date approaches.T. Morrison said, “I’ll just play itby ear, too. If I do anything, it’ll becleaning. I like a clean environ-ment.”

I don’t remember much aboutfirst grade. It was … er … quite awhile ago. I do remember that itwas held in a one-room schoolabout five miles from home, andthere were five other students. Oneof those schoolmates was my sis-ter, and the other four were all sib-lings from another local family – three girls and one boy, Charlie,who was in first grade with me.As I recall, the bathrooms wereoutdoor biffys with one being forgirls and the other for boys. Therewere blackboards, of course, and apicture of George Washington – you know the one that has an oddblank part that the artist neverquite finished. About the onlyother thing inside besides deskswas an old foot-pump type organ.It was a wheezy thing that weplayed on or with from time totime.Despite the school being named“Harmony,” there was little musi-cal talent amongst the students.Singing together was not a joy sowe didn’t do it much. We did, how-ever, get along okay and were“Harmonious” in that way. Duringrecess, there was a lot of rope jumping. This was the kind wheretwo people swing the rope and oneor two more do the jumping. Ilearned how to do it somewhat, butI don’t think I was ever very goodat it. Everyone had a nickname forthe jumping events, and mine was“Popcorn Popper.”I also assume that Charlie and Isometimes got on the teacher’snerves since she frequently told usto go outside and play when wewere done with our classes orwork. We may have been causingtrouble, I suppose, as unlikely asthat might seem. Anyway, Charlieand I were glad to run around out-side or else in the basement whenit was cold. There was coal in onepart of the basement since theplace was heated with it. As youcan imagine, the school was some-what chilly when we first arrivedin the morning in the winter, but itwarmed up nicely after awhile.Our teacher was my cousin,Marilyn, who was fairly young andquiet, but I think she was a goodenough teacher. She was brightand kind as well and lived with usduring that year. She drove my sis-ter, Pat, and me to school each day.When the roads were muddy, wetook the jeep which was an old rat-tletrap if I ever saw one. If the roadwas apt to be particularly bad atthe creek with all its gumbo, Dadand Marilyn decided we should godown the ridge instead of the road.Then, when the ridge came to anend, there was a very steep hill wedived over to the creek. I didn’t likethat hill. It scared me a bit al-though Marilyn was an excellentdriver, and we never had any trou-ble. Going up out of the creek onthe east side was no big deal sinceit was a more gradual incline.Oh, yes. One of Marilyn’s jobs athome was to light the kerosenelamps every night. She also refilledthem with fuel and trimmed thewicks. Does that give you someidea of how long ago all this was? Yes. It was before electricity ar-rived in rural areas although itwas just a few years prior to that,and we originally had 32-voltpower from a generator for a cou-ple of years before the high lineswere strung our way. In firstgrade, though, we were still onkerosene lamps with a few bright Aladdin ones and some dimmerregular wick ones. I even had asmall wick one of my own and stilldo.Well, after that first year at Har-mony, the neighbor kids movedaway leaving just Pat and me. Forthe next three years, then, theschool moved to the upstairs of ourhouse. Mom was our teacher fortwo of those three years, and theneighbor lady, Myrt, taught us themiddle year. Another boy from sixmiles away came to join us forawhile and lived with us when theroads were bad. After that, Pat wasready for high school so we boughta house in town to live in whenschool was in session although wereturned to the ranch most week-ends and during the summer.Some now think country schoolsare outdated and town school isbetter. I doubt it. A good educationdepends a lot more on teachersthan facilities. Home-schooled kidseven seem to have a slight advan-tage over those taught in class-rooms which I suspect might be theresult of a lot of personal attention.Well, as I said, I don’t remembera lot about first grade at Harmonyschoolhouse, but what memories Ido have are pleasant enough. WhatI learned there gave me a goodenough start to go on for fifteenmore years of schooling and dookay. I have no complaints.

Changing gears
... by Del Bartels 
The gym floors gleam like mirrors. The cleaned lockers are empty,with door hinges aligned. Textbooks are numbered and stacked, readyto be checked to students. Detailed lesson plans are filed. Everythingis ready. Then rings the first bell of the first day of school.Kids bounce over the backs of chairs to plop down at yet-unassigneddesks. Chatter is non-stop. Summer tales are being related withoutbreath over other tellings. Sitting quietly and paying attention to justone speaker is a foreign concept. The first day, probably stretching wellinto next week, is going to be an individual and class-wide struggle toease summer out students’ way of thinking and for them to concentrateon school stuff. Talk time, play time, lunch, naps and the day’s finalbell are the students’ main concerns. A look of painful realization of non-idealistic reality crosses the faces of even the most experienced in-structors. And that’s just with the senior class.For many, last weekend was the end of summer jobs. For most, mus-cles are weary from practices over the last few days for football, volley-ball and cross country. Sleepiness will hit, and hit hard, right afterlunch when the stomach is content, the body is stationary and the re-membrances of classroom routine begin to settle in. Then, after theday’s last class, there is sports practice. New rules and regulations arelisted by the teachers; funny, most of the students can’t remember theold rules and regulations. Signing up for different organizations, forextra curricular activities, for Brownie-point volunteer work, for beingor needing a peer tutor, for clubs –all have to be done by tomorrow, orbetter yet by yesterday. “Oh no, I forgot my gym shoes.” “Where didthey move the pop machine?” “Man, did David grow taller over thesummer!” “Have you see Sharon –and she used to be a skinnytomboy?!” “Dad, absolutely everybody else is driving to school!” “Sorry,Mom, I forgot and had to drive back to get my little brother.” “Dad, Imight need extra sports insurance this year.”Things change. Things stay the same. Most the teachers are back,but a few new faces are behind familiar desks. The cafeteria food isgood, but never admit it. Now they offer breakfast. College remindershave been coming through the mail all summer long, and you’d better join some clubs to be better rounded on your college applications. Foot-ball again, but now you are a captain. Worked all summer ... for college... so you’re still broke. “We were supposed to remember all of last year’salgebra for this year’s trigonometry class?” “She’s dating so-and-so, andI have only eight months until the prom!”To students: high school is crazy –the best crazy that you will re-member your entire life. To parents: the definition of a teenager is the“terrible twos” times seven plus a driver’s license. To teachers: youwanted the job, and during those precious moments when the light bulbbrightens students’ faces, that is when you love it.

The Philip Chamber of Com-merce meeting, Monday, August13, revolved around the success of this summer’s Philip Festival Daysand the Haakon/Jackson CountyFair and Achievement Days, andhow the chamber can improvethose events even more.Doug West reported, “The fairboard is elated about the PhilipMasonic Rascal Rodeo.” The youthrodeo on August 4 was held in con- juction with the 2012 Haakon/Jackson County Fair and Achieve-ment Days. It drew 236 entries andlasted five hours. West said that itwent very well. At first the organ-izers were going to award just amoney pay back to individual win-ners, but prizes such as halterswere better received by the kids.Chamber treasurer Matt Reedysaid the roping arena is going well,and it is being used a lot, such asfor the matched bronc ride, theyouth rodeo and for weekly ropingevents.The Festival Days weekend costthe chamber approximately $5,000.Reedy said, “That is okay. We kepta whole lot of people in town allweekend long.” Boyd Waara led themeeting’s attendees in agreeingthat Festival Days was a huge suc-cess.Reedy admitted, “I don’t thinkthe winners of the horse races wonenough to pay for gas to Philip.”Waara added, “And I don’t thinkthey care.” The horse races drew alarger crowd than last year. It tookadvantage of the bleachers thatwere rented from Rapid City. Thechamber believes that next yearthe races will be larger in audienceattendance and in participants.Reedy said he believed that thePhilip Volunteer Fire Departmentmight have had its best demolitionderby ever. The audience was largeand there were many contestants.Some of the rented bleachers wouldhave come in handy there.Waara noted, “The blow upgames were a thousand times bet-ter than a carnival, because themoney didn’t leave the town.” Dis-cussion included that some parentswere a bit late to the horse racesbecause their kids were having toomuch fun at the blow up games atFire Hall Park.West said that this last year’sfree dance was the way to go. Hesaid he had heard many people saythat the matched bronc ride wasgood, then all you had to do waswalk downtown for a free dance.Reedy said that more volunteerscould have been used “to spreadsome of the work out, but it was agreat Festival Days.”Leading into the big concern of the meeting, Reedy said, “Thenumber of people was unbeliev-able. We actually had about thesame numbers at the bronc ride aslast year, but they were more com-fortable, had more room and couldsee better.” The hired securityteam had continued to take ticketswell after the bronc ride began.Reedy said that ticked off manylatecomers, people who thoughtthey could get in free and were car-rying their own coolers, but it madethe security worth it.The bleachers, with liability in-surance figured in, cost the PhilipChamber of Commerce about$2,000. Midwest Cooperatives do-nated most of the fuel for five vehi-cles to pick up and to return thesets of bleachers. Now, thosebleachers might not be availablefor next year. The chamber is or-ganizing a letter writing campaign
that shouldinclude local businessowners. The campaign is tocon-vince Rapid City toallow thebleachers to berented again nextyear.
