Those present includ-ed: John Brunskill, Jewell Bork,Sam Seymour, Bruce Royer, HelenLouder, Monte Anker and KarleeBarnes.The commissioners opened themeeting at 9:00 a.m. discussingthe recent 4-H meeting held inKadoka. Anker shared his opinionof trying to co-op with the othercounties for one more year.Next, Brunskill informed thecommissioners of a December 12South Dakota Central SouthDakota Enhancement Districtmeeting, which will focus on eco-nomic development. He asked theboard if anyone wanted to go.The commissioners then brieflytouched on a lawsuit beingbrought against the county as aresult of a road sign being down,which led to a vehicle accident.Two liquor licenses wereapproved during the meeting. Onefor the Busted Nut and one for BadRiver Bucks and Birds.The commissioners set a datefor the end of the year meeting. Itwill be held Thursday, December27 at 1:30 p.m.Discussion then turned to thehiring of Angie Kinsley part timeas the 4-H secretary as well as thepart time emergency manager.They would offer her benefits. Anker proposed putting togetheran offer for Kinsley, which wouldleave room for negotiation. Thecommissioners agreed to offer $12per hour, plus full benefits. Sey-mour questioned about a startingdate, and the commissionersagreed on after the first of theyear, if Kinsley accepts the offer.The commissioners then signedand approved vouchers while dis-cussing recently sold land in Stan-ley County.Royer entered the meeting at10:50 a.m. and spoke with thecommissioners about the currentcondition of rural roads. With thelack of moisture, the roads arerough, but nothing can be done toimprove them.Executive session was calledfrom 11:20 a.m. to 11:25 a.m.The commissioners then ques-tioned again about whether or notthey will make a proposal on Kins-ley’s position with 4-H and emer-gency management.They then spoke with Royeragain, this time discussing old cul-verts that are currently layingaround the county. Brunskill votedto bid them out. The commission-ers brought up the option of junk-ing the culverts and taking themto Pierre, however it was decidedthat if the county didn’t have timeto do this, they would just putthem up for bid. The buyer wouldpay by the ton, and also have theresponsibility of transportingthem.Kinsley then called and told thecommissioners that she wouldtake the 4-H and emergency man-agement positions for $12.50 perhour, but she did not give them afinal decision.The meeting was thenadjourned at 12:00 p.m.

I learned about differentGreek stories and myths. I tasteddifferent kinds of olives: black,green andkalamata. Idon’treal-ly think I learned a new skill atcamp because I have been there somany times.I would encourage other kids togo to camp because you get to meetnew people and you get out of townand away from you family for awhile.Because Molly is 13, she cannowattend Teen Camp Bob.2013 Teen Camp is called 4-HCampwreckedand will focus onoutdoor survival skills.
