PIERRE, S.D. – The SouthDakota Highway Patrol has sobri-ety checkpoints scheduled in Sep-tember in the following counties:Beadle, Bennett, Brown, Clay,Codington, Lawrence, Lincoln,Lyman, McCook, Minnehaha,Moody, Pennington, Roberts,Union and Walworth.
Gov. Dennis Daugaard has is-sued an Executive Order that,upon receipt of a permit, grantspermission to move over-widthbaled livestock feed not exceeding12-feet-wide or 15-feet-high inSouth Dakota two hours aftersunset and two hours before sun-rise.Over-width vehicles must beequipped with flashing or rotat-ing white or amber warninglights placed at each side of theload’s widest extremity. Thewarning lights must be clearlyvisible to motorists approachingfrom the front and rear. Move-ment under the executive order isvalid only for baled livestock feed.The Governor’s ExecutiveOrder allows over-width movingof baled livestock feed until cessa-tion of the drought emergency orno later than Oct. 20, 2012.“This summer’s persistentdrought conditions have left live-stock producers across SouthDakota with inadequate feed sup-plies,” said Walt Bones, SouthDakota Secretary of Agriculture.“Increasing hauling height andwidth restrictions for baled haywill allow producers to move feedin a more efficient manner.”The normal restriction onSouth Dakota highway loads is14-feet, 3-inches high and 8-feet,6-inches wide. Although height and width re-strictions for baled livestock feedhave been temporarily increasedby Executive Order, several high-ways in the state have width andheight restrictions in place be-cause of construction or perma-nent structures. Truckers areencouraged to check their routesahead of time for those restric-tions. Agriculture is South Dakota'sNo. 1 industry, generating nearly$21 billion in annual economic ac-tivity and employing more than80,000 South Dakotans. TheSouth Dakota Department of  Agriculture's mission is to pro-mote, protect, preserve and im-prove this industry for today andtomorrow.

She dedicatedher life to Jesus Christ as ateenager and strove to honor Himthroughout her life. Despite lim-ited resources, her parents pro-vided opportunity for Gladys andher siblings to develop their Godgiven musical abilities. Faith,family, and music greatly definedGladys.Upon graduating from FaithHigh School in 1938, Gladysmoved with her parents to Stur-gis and then to the Corning, IA,area. In the fall of 1942, they re-turned to Sturgis. Gladys enjoyedtraveling while working for theFarmer's Home Administrationfrom 1943 to 1954. Being single,she greatly enjoyed time spentwith her many nieces andnephews. On November 28, 1954,Gladys was united in marriage toOdin Hansen at Denton, MT. Shewas blessed with an instant fam-ily with Odin's three sons,Leonard, Eugene, and Robert,whose mother, Ethel ArvidsonHansen, had passed away in1945. Odin, Gladys, and the boyslived on a farm near Platte, SD,before moving back to Sturgiswhere she and Odin owned andoperated rental property from1956 to 1975. She was also em-ployed at H O Anderson Hard-ware before adding to their familyanother son, Larry, and daughter,Odena. From 1974 to 1983, shewas employed at the Fort Meade VA Medical Center.Upon retirement, Gladys andOdin enjoyed traveling to visittheir children. But most of theirsummers were spent close tohome at the Hart Ranch nearRapid City. Gladys enjoyed read-ing, watching Trinity Broadcastnetwork, music, and the "gift of gab." She especially enjoyed play-ing her mandolin. She remainedinvolved in the lives and activitiesof her children, grandchildren,and great-grandchildren, even if unable to physically participate inthose events. Her relationshipwith her sisters and their chil-dren remained very close.Following the loss of Odin in2006, she often said she had herticket ready for her final trip.Her heart longed for the daywhen she would join her lovedones in heaven. On Monday, Au-gust 20, 2012, at the age of 91, theLord finally allowed her to usethat ticket. She peacefully passedfrom this life to her eternal re-ward at the Sturgis CommunityHospital. That day she spoke toMarilyn, her daughter-in-law,about the party Marilyn waspreparing. Even though it seemedshe was confused, we now know itwas the celebration of her life andhomecoming. Her quick wit anddetermined spirit will be fondlyremembered.
