Fire broke out Friday afternoon when this pickup, pulling a horse trailer, startedon fire near the westbound mile marker #155 on I-90. Flames were shooting out of the cab of the pickup and thefire broke with a black cloud of smoke toward the north, posing a threat to the Merle and Linda Stilwelll home.Fire departments from Kadoka and several surround towns were able to extinguish the wind-driven blaze beforedoing extensive damage. No buildings or structures were lost. The fire appeared to be approximately one-half mile wide and burned some of Hogen’s CRP and a south pasture of Merle Stilwell’s on land owned by JohnWearner.

See more in this week’s paper.Whooping cough cases are onthe rise and state health officialsare urging parents to make suretheir children are immunized.Nationally, 48 states and Wash-ington, DC, have reported in-creases in whooping cough, alsoknown as pertussis, through Sep-tember. In South Dakota, cases areup 87% over the five-year median,with 56 cases reported as of Octo-ber 3. Most of those cases are inschool-age children and result froman outbreak in a school setting.Pertussis causes uncontrollablecoughing, rib fractures, pneumo-nia, loss of consciousness and evendeath. Very young children are athighest risk, with two-thirds of kids under age 1 who get it needinghospitalization.The Dept. of Health providesfree pertussis vaccine for children,with doses recommended at 2months, 4 months, 6 months, 15-18months, and 4-6 years. Childrenneed the complete series to be fullyprotected. A booster dose is alsorecommended at 11-12 years as im-munity begins to wane. Thatbooster dose is free as well.The booster dose protects middleschool students from the diseaseand increases the ring of protectionaround vulnerable infants. Be-cause whooping cough is highlycontagious and spreads easily inthe school setting, immunizing theolder age group also helps decreasethe likelihood of outbreaks.Contact your usual vaccineprovider to request the vaccine.

1 Peter 1:6-7God is always at work in our lives. Even during sea-sons of adversity, He wants to accomplish somethingpowerful and good. How should this knowledge affectour response? Today's passage teaches us to choose torejoice during difficult times. This doesn't mean we have to be happy about the hardship itself. Instead, joy comes from drawing close to the Lord and believing steadfastly that through His redemptive power,He is growing and preparing us. If your usual response to trials is anxiety, anger, or depression, the ideaof having joy in the midst of a negative situation might not seem logical. However, if you look beneaththe surface, you will discover that this biblical directive makes sense for several reasons.Often, our natural reaction to pain is to run in the opposite direction, and as fast as possible. However,God wants to teach us endurance--much like a long-distance runner builds up strength in training--sothat we can fully benefit from what He is doing in our hearts. He uses trials as a refining fire to purifyus like gold and bring us to greater spiritual maturity. As we realize that we are actually being mademore complete through our adversities, we'll begin to face challenging times with confidence that He al-ways has our best interest in mind.While a worldly viewpoint sees hope and joy in the midst of dark times as naïve, a spiritual perspectivediscerns that we're really progressing on a journey toward life at its fullest. We can be filled with super-natural joy, knowing that the Lord is making us into world-changing spiritual warriors.

“On Sale” is a relative term.Sometimes it represents consider-able savings and sometimes not somuch. Take cottage cheese andsour cream for instance. Locallythey are usually priced at about$4.09 whereas the sale price oftenis maybe only $3.89. Okay, that’stwenty cents off, but only an actualfive-percent reduction. Not exactlya hot deal. Still, twenty cents istwenty cents so you might as welltake advantage of the slight bar-gain if you actually need the stuff.If your refrigerator is already toofull, you can safely delay the pur-chase for later without sufferingmajor financial consequences.On the other hand, productslike paper towels and toilet paperare best to buy and stock up onwhen they’re sale priced. Papertowels can be over $13 for a largemultiple-roll package whereas onsale they may range from $5 or $8.In other words, they may be half off. Since we go through a ton of paper towels around here, I alwaysbuy a goodly supply when they’recheap.One brand of paper towels was-n’t a good buy, however, accordingto wife Corinne. They were an off-brand variety at a good price thatI dragged home a month or so ago.Corinne said they were about asabsorbent as tinfoil and not to buyany more of them despite theirhaving a pretty design. We haveallocated them to uses that don’trequire a lot of absorbency and puta better brand on the kitchen cup-board. I think we have the badones almost used up now, but it’staken a concerted effort.Coffee is another product that isoften a lot cheaper when on sale. Agood brand currently goes for over$13 a can at standard priceswhereas it can drop to close to $7or $8 on sale. Luckily, we aren’ttied into just one brand since sev-eral are okay. We can take advan-tage of most of the price cuts.All of this brings to mind theconcept of actual worth. If the reg-ular prices and sale prices arevastly different, this might possi-bly indicate that the product isgenerally overpriced. Conversely, if there isn’t much difference, maybeyou’re actually getting a productthat is worth what you’re payingfor it.Unfortunately for my mid-sec-tion, ice cream is frequently of-fered at reduced prices. One of myfavorite brands tends to go on saleabout once a month and severelytests my somewhat-feeble sales re-sistance. They have a chocolate-al-mond that is to die for. Also excel-lent is their “moose-tracks”involving vanilla ice cream withlots of chocolate strips and peanutbutter cups. Even their vanillabean is quite tasty with freshpeaches or maybe a banana and atouch of chocolate syrup. Whenthese luscious dairy delights areon sale, they offer a form of low-cost weight gain although theyaren’t unhealthful in other ways.Some sales techniques are a bitconfusing. It is popular nowadaysto offer ten packages of somethingfor $10. Do you really need tenboxes of Hamburger Helper? Thisis more of a gimmick than any-thing since you can usually buyone or two items instead of ten andstill get the sale price. Anothertrend is for stores to say, “Buy one.Get one free.” This may be okay,but I noticed that deal being of-fered on a cut-up chicken thisweek. The only problem was thatthe one you pay for is around $9which is about twice what achicken is worth in the first place.Generally speaking, if a storecuts something up, it costs more.Similarly, if they cook it or make itinstant, it is higher priced. Whenit comes to bacon, though, I oftenbuy the pre-cooked stuff since wedon’t eat a lot of it. What’s more, itis so simple to microwave fourstrips for fifteen seconds ratherthan spend twenty minutes fryingit and dealing with all that grease.My nephew would find this a sillyidea, however, since many of hisfavorite dishes include bacongrease for frying or simply as anaddition. He fishes and hunts al-most constantly, and I suspect thatvenison and other wild gamemight indeed be improved withlashings of bacon grease.So, as usual, one needs to keeptheir wits about them when buy-ing anything whether it’s on saleor not. I have noticed that sourcream is this week actually beingoffered at $2.49 which is a gooddeal on that product. I shouldprobably stock up. I make a formof kolache with that which in-volves flattening a bit of breaddough, poking a dent in the mid-dle, and baking it six minutes.Then you add the sour creammixed with some sugar and cinna-mon in the dent and on top andbake it some more. This is justfirst-rate, and I actually crave itfrom time to time. Got to go now.The sale ends today. Don’t want tomiss it.
