Commissioners accept resignation of highway superintendent, hears road addition requests

Boyd L. Porch, Kadoka, was pre-sented the Wright Brothers MasterPilot Award by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), September8, during a South Dakota Pilots As-sociation (SDPA) meeting inSpearfish.The FAA honored Porch for 50accident free years of flying andpresented him with a plaque and ablue ribbon package of his accom-plishments and records over hisflying career. The SDPA presentedPorch’s wife, Pat, with a plaqueand the FAA presented a pin forher support of him being a pilot.“I was really pleased when theyhanded me the plaque. I was ex-pecting a piece of paper,” said B.Porch, a veterinarian in Kadoka.There are many stringent re-quirements to earning the award.The main one are the pilot musthave 50 years of documentedUnited States piloting experience,the entire time holding a Civil Avi-ation Authority or FAA pilot certifi-cate. Porch’s three letters of recommendation from fellow pilotswere written by Southwest Airlinespilot Brian Brost, Sioux Falls, and Vern VanderMay and MarshaSumpter, both of Kadoka. Porchwas told by Steve Hamilton, withthe SDPA, that there are onlyabout 30 such recognized pilots inSouth Dakota.“The whole process has been a lotof fun,” said his wife, Pat. “It was agreat experience to look back overall the flying experiences.” Back in1994, she gave Boyd a gift certifi-cate to the River of No Return Fly-ing School in Challis, Idaho. Boydwrote in his flying history thatsince that time, he has flown intothe mountain strips of Idaho threetimes, including a camping tripwith his wife to a remote airstrip atthe confluence of Moose Creek andthe Selway River. He wrote that itwas very beautiful and exciting fora flatlander like himself.“Some guys can’t get their wivesto go with them, but Pat was al-ways willing and did a lot of trav-eling with me. We’ve flown quite alittle bit,” said Porch. Such trips in-clude to Denver, Colo., Saulte Ste.Marie, Mich., Missoula, Mont., andWichita, Kan. Times, though, havechanged a bit. “We used to not havethem, but now Global PositioningSystems are wonderful. You justfollow the line,” explained Porch.“Got into a snowstorm down byMartin one time, that was kind of scary,” exclaimed Porch, “but I’vebeen pretty cautious about flying.Two things can be dangerous – horses and airplanes –they bothcan hurt you if you’re not careful.There was a time when there wasno vet in Philip and I was prettymuch the only one between Cham-berlain and Rapid City. That wasthe excuse, but the truth couldcome out,” joked Porch, who admit-ted he just loves to fly every chancehe gets.A brief summary of Porch’s pilot-ing history was read at the presen-tation by Steve Hoogerhyde, FAA safety team program manager – operations. “In 1958, Boyd and hisbrother took flying lessons in Mar-tin, S.D., and after only eight hoursof instruction they both soloedaround the Martin Airport.“Boyd’s brother purchased aPiper J-3 with an 85 horsepowerengine for only $850. On one occa-sion, Boyd flew to Brookings, ranlow on fuel and landed in afarmer’s pasture near Plankintonto purchase five dollars of fuel fromthe farmer. The farmer may havethought Boyd was an escapee fromthe school for juvenile delinquentsat Plankinton with a story as unbe-lievable as that, until he saw theplane sitting in the pasture. Thefollowing summer, the plane wastraded to Cecil Ice for a 135 HPSuper Cub.“After completing college atSouth Dakota State University inpre-veterinary medicine, Porch wasaccepted into Iowa State Univer-sity, and after receiving his degree,he set up practice in Murdo, S.D.“In 1975, Boyd began wheatfarming and realized that it wasnot practical to own a Cessna 185and a four-wheel drive tractor con-currently. He bought and sold sev-eral aircraft until 1994 when hepurchased a Piper Pacer from CecilIce. To this day, Boyd and his wifestill travel extensively to attendPiper conventions and visit chil-dren, grandchildren and friends.“Flying has been an importantpart of Boyd’s life and he considershimself fortunate to have flown forhis own veterinary practice. He hasbeen flying for 53 plus years andhas never had an accident. Boyd ishoping to fly for many more years.”

Church Calendar 
James 1:22Growing in Christ involves far more than just at-tending church, tithing, and listening to a sermon. Infact, many believers do these yet remain stagnant intheir walk. There are two elements necessary for us tobecome more like Jesus: instruction and involvement.The first of these, learning truth, is vital to a healthy walk with God. Our Savior proved the importanceof instruction by devoting much of His time on earth to it. The apostle Paul is another example, as hewrote letters to educate Christians about godliness.So how can we gain knowledge and understanding? One of the most important and effective ways isto read the Word of God. Scripture instructs us that just as newborns crave milk, we are to desire HisWord so that we might grow. I pray your spiritual thirst will become insatiable.Yet simply listening to the truth does not mean that we've acquired it. I know many people who loveattending Bible studies and expanding their knowledge base, but their lives remain unchanged. Just astoday's passage teaches, we have to apply the Word to our lives. Even so, actual growth requires morethan merely inputting information. It requires action. James 2:26 states, "For just as the body withoutthe spirit is dead, so also faith without works is dead."Are we careless hearers, deceived into thinking that we're growing? Or are we listening intently andabiding in the truth? If we're truly maturing, our lives will be increasingly Christlike, and our desireswill align more closely with God's heart. Make sure that you are listening and responding to His truth.

God does not make grandmoth-ers like He once did. At least notlike MY grandmother. Grand-mother never trusted such thingsas banks with her money. Someoneonce told my grandmother, “If youwould put your money in the bank,they would pay you interest.”With a confused look on her faceshe responded, “I have enough in-terest in my money, nobody elseneeds to bother about it.” That wasthat!After my grandfather died, mywife and I had the opportunity totake grandma out for supper. Itwas a delightful restaurant and wethought it would be a real treat forher. More than once, I had to keepher from getting up and servingcoffee to the rest of the people inthe restaurant. After all, she didthat at the church suppers. Whynot here. “I’ve got two good legs,”she protested.Then came time to pay thecheck and the waiter brought thecheck and laid it in front of me. Iimmediately took a credit card outof my wallet and laid it on thecheck.I could tell grandma had neverseen a credit card before.“Put that away,” she said. “I be-lieve that man wants you to payfor our supper. Don’t you have anymoney?”“I’m paying for our supper withmy credit card,” I explained.“Oh, dear,” she moaned. “Youknow I don’t believe in cards.Cards are of the devil, and I havenever had a deck of cards in myhouse. I’m a little surprised thatyou, a minister, would be foolingaround with such things of thedevil.”She insisted we tip the waiter in“good ole American cash.” I am notsure if grandma ever really under-stood the credit card. She boughtnothing on credit and did not ac-cept credit. Everything had to bedone in cash. She often quoted thescripture verse that says, “Owe noman any thing . . .” (Romans 13:8KJV), which she took quite liter-ally.As grandma got older, shebegan to rethink the business of opening a bank account. Withouttelling anyone, she decided to go tothe bank and open an account. Shehad saved up $50 for this purpose.Grandma nervously entered thebank and walked up to the mansitting at the desk marked “New Accounts.”“Good morning, Ma’am. I’mGary Goodman. How can I helpyou today?”The man seemed pleasantenough, and grandma thought en-trusting him with the delicate jobat hand was probably safe.“I wanna open an account,” shemumbled.“Fine. I’ll get you all set up. Itwon’t take but a few minutes.”With that, he took out some papersand laid them on his desk in frontof grandma.“Now,” he said, “let’s begin.What is your name?”She told him.
 In life, an “account at the bank” can be a relative thing
“O.K. What is your address?”“What?”“What is your address?”“Why do you need to knowthat?”“I’m just filling out the form,Ma’am.”The young man a little confusedwith her hesitancy said, “We cancome back to that. What is yourdate of birth?”Grandma’s face turned a littlered. “What do you want to knowthat for,” she gasped?“I’m just filling out the forms.Can you give me your telephonenumber?”That did it for grandma. She gotup from her seat and looked himright in the face and said, “Youngman, I don’t know who you thinkyou are, but I am not interested inyour advances. I’m old enough tobe your mother. You ought to beashamed.”Just then the manager of thebank walked by.“Mary, what are you doinghere?”The manager quickly assessedthe situation and told the youngman he would take care of this cus-tomer and tried to console mygrandmother.“I don’t know what’s gotten intoyoung folk these days,” she whis-pered.Barely concealing his managerhis smile he said, “I’ll take care of you, Mary,” he assured her. Heknew all the information about herand quickly filled in the paperwork and walked grandma to theteller for her first deposit.Grandma handed the teller acrumpled $50 bill. The teller tookit and gave her a deposit receipt.“Where’s my money?” grandmademanded.“It’s safe in the bank, Ma’am.”“How do you know my moneyfrom everyone else’s?”“The money is all deposited inthe bank, and if you need any, allyou do is write a check.”She showed grandma how towrite out a check. By nowgrandma was confused and morethan a little exasperated. Quicklygrandma wrote out a check for $50and handed it back to the teller.“You’re withdrawing all yourmoney?”“Yes.”The teller counted out $50 andhanded it to her. Grandma lookedat the teller and said, “No. I wantMY money.” The teller retrievedthe crumpled $50 bill and handedit to grandma.As she walked out, the tellerheard her mumble, “What a crazyway to run business. No wonderbanks fail.”There is only one sure account Ican bank on. Jesus said, “Lay notup for yourselves treasures uponearth, where moth and rust dothcorrupt, and where thieves breakthrough and steal: But lay up foryourselves treasures in heaven,where neither moth nor rust dothcorrupt, and where thieves do notbreak through nor steal:”(Matthew 6:19-20 KJV).

Healthy Crock Pot Ideas
Long working days combinedwith extra activities don’t alwaysallow us enough time to preparetasty, healthy meals when we gethome. Consider preparing meals inyour crock pot (also known as aslow cooker); it allows you to justfix it and forget it until meal time.There are many benefits tousing crock pots. They allow easy,one-step preparation. Just add theingredients and cook. Because theslow cooker doesn’t allow steam toescape, the food inside retainsmoisture. Ingredients shouldn’tdry out or burn. Most meat andvegetable combinations can cookfor 8 to 10 hours without attention. Another benefit of crock pot cook-ing is that it can improve the nu-tritional content of our food. Theoutcome of cooking leaner, less ex-pensive cuts of meat with moist,long cooking times is very tendermeats and less shrinkage. Skirtsteak, shoulder or leg cuts are ex-amples of cuts of meat that canoffer a savings on your grocery bill.A crock pot can be used for a va-riety of healthy and satisfyingrecipes, including soups, pot roastsor poultry, stews, casseroles, anddesserts. For crock pot recipes thatuse condensed soups, plan to uselower-sodium and lower-fat ver-sions. Since vegetables cook slowerthan meat in the moist heat of thecrock pot, place root vegetablessuch as carrots and potatoes (cutinto small pieces of equal size) inthe bottom of the crock pot. Addtender vegetables like tomatoesand zucchini during the last 45minutes of cooking time, so theydon’t overcook. Add more flavorduring the cooking process byusing dried leaf herbs instead of ground herbs.Only fill the crock pot half totwo-thirds full. The food will notcook properly if the appliance isfilled to the brim. Try to resist thetemptation to lift the lid of thecrock pot to peek at your food dur-ing the cooking process. It is esti-mated that the temperature drops10 degrees each time the lid is re-moved, adding about 20 minutes tothe cooking time, since it takesthat long to recover the tempera-ture. As you become more familiarwith crock pot cooking, you will beable to adapt family favorite mealsto crock pot cooked meals. Whenchoosing recipes to adapt, chooserecipes that take at least 45 min-utes to cook; these recipes often in-clude ingredients that hold up tolong cooking times. To time anadapted recipe for the crock pot,estimate 3 to 4 hours on low forevery hour of conventional cook-ing.For many busy individuals,knowing that a healthy meal iswaiting at home helps avoid less-healthy convenience meals afterwork.

We had a plague of fruit fliesone day earlier this week. Itstarted off slowly but built all dayuntil we were inundated with thetiny airborne critters. You nor-mally expect a few insects to get inthrough cracks or to sneak inthrough doors when you openthem. When a swarm appears in-side, however, you know you eitherhave a major breach in your de-fenses or you have something rot-ten around that is providing abreeding ground. Either way, thereis a problem that needs to be ad-dressed.Well, when wife Corinne noticedmore fruit flies than usual thisweek, our attention was firstdrawn to a bag of apples someonehad just given us from their fruittree. They were in a plastic bag sit-ting on top of the freezer. When Iinspected them, one or two flieswere sighted. I took the whole bagoutside and moved one apple at atime to a clean bag, but there was just one little rotten spot on oneapple which didn’t seem bigenough to harbor much of any-thing. Nevertheless, if I let thefruit sit around very long, it wouldattract bugs and cause a problem. As a result, I spent an hour or twomaking a large apple crunch forlater use. I carefully disposed of the peelings, cores, etc. and waitedto see what would happen.The apples weren’t the problem.The flies kept multiplying. I wasmaking some bread at the time,and fruit flies adore bread dough.They came from all around to ei-ther sit on the dough, my hands, orthe counter. I’m sure I killed two tothree dozen of them, and they stillkept coming. By this time, I wasgetting irritated and went on thewar path. Flies were found andswatted at a goodly rate, and thisdid reduce their numbers some-what. I was aware I hadn’t gottento the root of the problem just yet,but swatting everything in sightmade me feel better.What worried me was myknowledge that fruit flies repro-duce themselves very quickly andin great abundance. That’s whythey are so popular in the study of genetics. You don’t have to waitvery long to see what happenswhen you mate a green-eyed fly toa brown eyed or whatever. A fe-male, you see, may lay up to 400eggs at a time. Those hatch withina day, and, slightly over a weeklater, the females that hatched canthemselves lay eggs. This is in con-trast to cattle which take abouttwo years to reproduce themselves. A heifer calf needs to grow about ayear before being bred, and gesta-tion is about nine months whichadds another year. So, it takes al-most two years to see the results of your breeding program in cattlewhile it only takes a little over aweek with fruit flies.I once raised some coturnixquail which weren’t as fast as fruitflies, but were fairly amazing forbirds. Their eggs only took a bitover two weeks to hatch, and thefemales that were hatched startedlaying eggs themselves in abouttwo months. You could start theyear with five quail and end it withthousands. Contrast that with ele-phants which have a gestation pe-riod of almost two years withyoung females not being able to re-produce until they are teenagers.Patience would be required toraise a herd of elephants.Anyway, after swatting andthinking all day, it finally occurredto me in the wee hours of the nightthat there was a bag of potatoes ina cardboard box under a table. Assoon as I remembered that, I knewI was on the right track. As a re-sult, I carefully lifted the closedbox and carried it outside. When Ilifted the lid, there was lots of ac-tivity--flies everywhere. Later inthe day I took that box out onto theprairie and liberated the rotten po-tatoes and any larvae they con-tained. We could live on powderedpotatoes for a few days and keepall fruit refrigerated.Yesterday, then, was closer tonormal with only a few of thepesky flies hovering around myhead. Most of those were swattedand done away with. Today waseven better. I only saw and killedone of the nasty critters. In the fu-ture, potatoes are apt to be high onmy suspect list when fruit fliesstart appearing. I also figure I canget rid of a lot of them if necessaryby rolling out a bit of bread doughon the counter and waiting nearbywith a swatter in hand. For now,however, the plague seems to beover which is quite a relief. The ge-neticists can keep their silly fruitflies. I don’t need them.

Mary said Lela stillhas about 70 head of horses plussix stallions. These take a lot of care and Mary helped with feedand water, but she didn’t help withcleaning the barn. The sisters wereoriginally going to bring Mary allthe way home and stay a bit, butJenene got ill before that couldhappen so their visit here had to bepostponed.Larry and Joy Dolezal went toBelle Fourche last week to visittheir daughter, Carmen Nemec,and family.

Georgann and Jamihave also spent the last week houseand babysitting for friends whowanted to go on vacation. On Sun-day, Georgann went to Wall to getin a bit of barrel racing. Jami, how-ever, was tired from her weekendand decided to stay home and takea nap.Jim Addison also reported see-ing what he termed a “travelingbike museum.” As he was drivingeast from his place near Belvidereto 1880 Town on the service road,he passed about 70 or more old orantique motorcycles that weremaking a run from Boston to theWest Coast. Some of these wereWorld War II vintage and quite in-teresting to see. One rider even hada Sears motorcycle, and thosehaven’t been made for quite a longtime now. There are problems withthe older machines, of course, andone fellow had quite a time gettinghis started again at 1880 Town buteventually managed it.Bunny Green spent several daysin Ft. Pierre this last week. Shewent there with her daughter, Dar-lene Wiedemer, of Murdo and theystayed with Darlene’s daughter,Ruthie.

She did, despite not feel-ing well, help cut up and freezeabout 40 pounds of Coloradopeaches. On Sunday, Darlenebrought Bunny back home, andBunny said she was feeling prettygood by then. Bunny said she hadquite a good time except for whenshe didn’t feel well.Betty Kusick was visited onSunday by her daughter, LorettaSchreiber, and her husband,Lawrence, of Quinn. The visitorsbrought dinner with them. Theyalso brought Betty a new cellphone. They figured she goes fish-ing often enough that it would begood to have a way for her to callfor help if she needed it. They gaveBetty instruction on how to use thenew phone which Betty hopes willhelp her use it okay. Betty also saidher son, Kenny, recently caught afish that was of a kind he wasn’t fa-miliar with. He hoped it wasn’t apiranha like someone else hadcaught in a local dam which raisedquestions as to how on earth it evergot there. Anyway, Kenny took pic-tures of the unknown fish andhopes he can figure out what it waseventually. Kenny has since re-ported that the fish was a Euro-pean Rudd.Jo and Jory Rodgers were polic-ing the area around JR’s on Sun-day. Jo said that people exiting thefreeway there seem inclined tothrow out plastic bottles and othertrash to the extent that it needs tobe cleaned up every week or two.They had a small wagon full of trash they’d already picked up.prairie. The St. John LutheranChurch at Norris is a branch of that church. As you travel down SDHighway 63 east of town you willpass the Emmanuel Cemetery be-side where the old church stood.The story won over all 107 culturalarts items entered from the differ-ent extension districts in the state. At the state extension conven-tion the Norris Extension Club wasalso given special recognition forthe amount of reading they do.Jean Kary was also recognized forwriting her 50,000-word novel inone month project. Audra Baldwin visited Maxine Allard on Thursday and picked upsome things Maxine had saved forher. That afternoon Ken Koistenenof Pierre visited Maxine andchecked on his trail cameras he hasout there. It is so dry that folks aretelling of the variety of wild lifecoming to the watering holes.

The shower was forJarrod and Lacey Dunham’s baby,who is expected to arrive in Decem-ber. Jarrod and Lacey were unableto attend because he didn’t getenough leave to come to SouthDakota.
