It’s not magic. Brewing the per-fect cup of coffee can take place inyour own kitchen!As with any recipe, fresh, high-quality ingredients matter. Startwith fresh, cold water. If you don’tlike the taste of your tap water, usefiltered water for better flavor.Remember, grinding coffee inadvance of brewing means loss of flavor. So invest in a coffee grinderfor a fresher brew.
How to brew the perfect cupof coffee every morning
Not all coffee beans are createdequally -- rely on a coffee with dis-tinctive flavor profiles and consis-tent roasting, such as PortlandRoasting Coffee, named by “RoastMagazine” as the 2012 Roaster of the Year.Use two tablespoons of groundcoffee per six ounce of water.Make sure your brewing devicereaches between 195F-205F to ex-tract maximum flavor.checking the data to make surewe’re making a difference,” thegovernor said. “The oversight com-mittee will make sure these recom-mendations don’t just sit on ashelf.”The 25-member task force wasappointed in May to study primarymedical care education in the stateand recommend ways to trainmore family practice physicians,physician assistants, nurse practi-tioners and other primary healthcare providers for South Dakota’srural areas.The group’s full report can beviewed at http://doh.sd.gov/Prima-ryCare/Promoting rural health oc-cupations is a key component of Governor Daugaard’s SouthDakota Workforce Initiatives(WINS).South Dakota WINS is a work-force development program thatbrings together government, edu-cation and business leaders to helpthe state develop and attract astronger, more-educated work-force.Find more information about theprogram at http://www.southdakotawins.com/.

The Wall Eagles boys’ basketballteam faced a determined OelrichsTigers team Tuesday night, De-cember 18th in their home opener.The Eagles jumped out to anearly 15-12 first quarter lead, butthe Tigers tied the game up athalftime with a last second threepointer 32-32.The Eagles regained the lead bythe end of the third quarter 50-45,but the Tigers started hitting thethree point shot late in the fourthquarter to take a commanding lead63-70.The Tigers made every freethrow late in the game to seal thevictory for a final score of 70-77.The Eagles had severalturnovers late in the game thatgave the ball back to the Tigersand Jon Garnier took advantage of every opportunity by going 3-3from the three point line and 6-6from the free throw line.The Eagles have a couple weeksto sharpen their skills on both of-fense and defense before they re-sume play in Wall on January 3,2013 against Rapid City Christian.Tyler Peterson was the leadingscorer for the Eagles with 16points off the bench, while LaneHustead and Tyler Trask had 13points and 12 points respectively.Clancy Lytle finished with 11points and Trevor Anderson andTucker O’Rourke each had ninepoints on the night.O’Rourke led the Eagle’s withnine rebounds, while Peterson fin-ished the game with seven re-bounds.Hustead led the Eagle’s with fiveassist and Anderson had four as-sist and zero turnovers in his homeopener as a Wall Eagle.The team was 28-70 from thefield for 40 percent and 9-13 fromthe free throw line for 69 percent.I was happy with how hard theboys played throughout the night,but we will need to be more patienton offense and continue to improveour defensive effort over the nextcouple weeks. As a first year head coach, Ihave learned a lot over our firstfour games and I have made sev-
