2012: a Murdo Coyote year in review
by Karlee Barnes
 Another year has come andgone, and with it brought manychanges, not only for the MurdoCoyote office, but also for the com-munity.In
, Ravellette Publi-cations launched a new E-editionfeature, for all seven of theirpapers, on the website, whichallows readers to purchase anonline subscription. The Pioneer Auto Museum brought home theGeorge S. Mickelson Great Service Award from the 2012 Governor’sConference on Tourism. Onceagain, the Jones County boys bas-ketball team hosted the Invita-tional Tournament, and claimedsecond place. Lonna Jackson joined the Murdo Coyote crew atthe end of January and continuesto work as the typesetter in addi-tion to keeping the office work inline. Amild winter continued into
, and both boys andgirls basketball teams wrapped uptheir seasons and prepared to takeon their respective district tourna-ments. The girls team went on towin the district championship, butlost to Edgemont in the region 7Bgame.
finally brought the snowstorm that everyone had begun togive up on. The storm dumpedenough snow to close the Inter-state and strand motorists inevery corner of Murdo. The JonesCounty Ambulance crew provideda CPR/AED class as a communityservice. Murdo saw an improve-ment in the city park as a newbathroom with plumbing wasinstalled. Adisappointing act of vandalism on the new docksinstalled at the North Dambrought spirits down. This was thesecond act of vandalism on thedocks that had been recentlyinstalled. The vandalism caseremains unsolved. March broughtanother big change in the closingof the HHH Truckstop, owned bythe Venard family. The truckstophad been a staple in the communi-ty since December 1, 1971, whenBarb Venard and her late hus-band, Lyle, started the business.In
, the Jones Countyschool district added grades 6-8football back into the sports lineup. The Fifth Annual Cure KidsCancer Radiothon featured localDacey Bryan as she joined othercancer victims and told her per-sonal account of her fight withcancer, and how her life has beenchanged. The Easter Bunny madean appearance at the City Park on April 5 during the annual Easteregg hunt.With the coming of

In addition, the Pioneer AutoMuseum celebrated the 20thanniversary of their Murdo in Mayevent. Main street saw somechanges as the old law officebetween the Murdo Coyote andWest Central Electric wasremoved. The local 4-H club had23 members qualify for the stateshooting sports tournament, andbrought home many first placeawards. Both Murdo and Draperheld Memorial Day ceremoniescomplete with speakers, music androws of crosses to honor and cele-brate the lives of all area militarymen and women.In

On June 5, Save OurFarm Youth day camp was held inMurdo, in which 56 kids partici-pated. June also brought a pri-mary election. Locally, Beth Fed-dersen won the primary for theJones County Treasurer and SteveIwan took the election in a 94-36turnout against Pressler Seymour.Construction started on the newbuilding now occupied by Venard,Inc., and the new docks at the CityPark and the North Dam wereexpanded. It was also decided inJune to move the fireworks loca-tion. The Murdo Fire Departmenthad been sponsoring the fireworksdisplay at the rodeo grounds foryears, and decided this year tomove the display to the NorthDam. The display was once againspectacular, and the added reflec-tion of the fireworks in the watermade it that much better.
brought with it heat anddrought and another season of lit-tle league baseball. TheJones/Mellette County Achieve-ment Days were held July 18-20and contained a full schedule of events. The KGFX radio stationbrought the Hometown Tour toMurdo and community membersdiscussed the upcoming RanchRodeo, Achievement Days, localbusinesses, and other communityevents.

The Law Misunderstoodby PastorCornelius R. Stam
There are three misconceptions that most people entertain about the law of God and its Ten Commandments:1. Most people have a vague notion that the law always was in existence and that it must have been given to the first man, Adam, or soon after. Actually,God gave the law to Moses for Israel about 1500 B.C., after about 2500 years of human history had elapsed (John 1:17). So mankind lived on earth for about2500 years without the law or the Ten Commandments.2. Most people suppose that the law and the Ten Commandments were given to mankind in general, while, in fact, it was given to Israel alone (Deuteron-omy 5:2,3).3. Most people suppose that the law and the Ten Commandments were given to help us to do right. Even some clergymen teach this, although the Bibleclearly teaches that they were given to show us that we are guilty sinners.It is true that the law, while given to Israel, also shows the Gentile that he is a sinner. This is why Romans 3:19 says:“Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law; that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may bebrought in guilty before God.”But most important of all: Few people realize that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins to deliver us from the just condemnation of the law. This is taughtin the following Scriptures:“Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us…” (Gal.3:13).“For God hath made Him to be sin for us, [Christ] who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him” (IICor.5:21).“For sin shall not have dominion over you; for ye are NOTUNDER THE LAW, BUTUNDER GRACE” (Rom.6:14).

“This is the day the LORD hasmade; let us rejoice and be glad init.” Psalm 118:24 
The alarm clock goes off and itbreaks my sleep and shatters mydreams I long to remember.Many of us like getting up earlyin the morning...some peoplehate getting up early...they wantto sleep as long as they can.But each morning brings a newday, another opportunity to getfrustrated with the kids, withpeople and to be late for work. Wetry to get everything done thatthe boss wants us to get done andthen we get home and we want torelax...and guess what...we aregoing where tonight?...then it’sfinally off to bed and sleep andthen tomorrow is another day.Tomorrow is another day, butthis is the day that the LORDhas made. There is often so littleto rejoice about in our day, isn'tthere? But the alarm clock didwake me up on time; that's some-thing, isn't it? And the kids were well behavedin the morning...another nicething and then we go towork...ready to face the day andall the challenges that itbrings....and I pray....”LORD,give me one opportunity to shareabout You with someone today. And it would be nice to go homeand have a quiet evening tonight. And yes, to get a good nightssleep.”We do need to rejoice, if onlyGod would give us a good day,, abetter new year. Anew day toshare the Love of Jesus Christ. And so I pray that the LORDwould give to me many newopportunities to share JesusChrist with others as we begin anew year in His name.We pray: Gracious LORD, helpme to be a witness for you alwaysand I praise you for the new dayand the new year, 2013 that Youare giving to me. In Jesus' name. Amen.

City council holds year end meeting
by Karlee Barnes
The Murdo City Council heldtheir annual year end meeting onWednesday, December 26.Those attending included: MattKinsley, Wayne Esmay, MayorDavid Geisler, Mike Jost, Joe Con-not, Arnie Waddell, Jerry Hathe-way, Krysti Barnes and KarleeBarnes.The meeting agenda wasapproved without question. Thecouncil then looked over the end of year bills and found no problems.Jost brought up the issue of vehicles parked on Main Streetthat needed to be moved so thestreets could be plowed. Hathewaysaid that he talked to the ownersof the vehicles and reminded themthat when it snows, the vehiclesneed to be moved off the street.Next on the agenda was theissue of the liquor license belong-ing to the Lost Souls Tavern.Barnes told the council that shewrote a letter to Deb Vollmer,informing her that she needed tobe at the end of year meeting tospeak to the board about not sign-ing necessary paperwork on timeto renew her liquor license. Theboard discussed that this has beena recurring problem over theyears. Vollmer was informed thatif she could not attend the meet-ing, she was to contact the councilmembers prior to the meeting.Barnes told the council that cityattorney Tom Harmon suggestednot approving the license, and ask-ing Vollmer to appear at the nextmeeting.Waddell asked what will hap-pen if the council does not approvethe renewal of Vollmer’s liquorlicense. Barnes responded that Vollmer will not be able to sellliquor from January 1 until thenext meeting, which is January 7.It should be noted, however, thatbeer sales are not included in theliquor license. Esmay asked if thecouncil could modify the contractto add a penalty for not complyingwith the terms set in the contract.Connot then asked if a penaltywould have to be added to eachliquor license contract that the cityhas. Barnes responded that sinceall other liquor license holderscomply with the contract, theywould not be subject to a penaltyadded to their contracts. Since Vollmer broke the terms of hercontract, the council may add apenalty.The council made no motion toapprove the Lost Souls Tavernliquor license, and made a decisionto revisit the topic at the January7 meeting. Abuilding permit was submit-ted by Bud and Carol Gross to adda 28’x 32’addition on the back of  All Pro Towing. The councilapproved the permit.The lighting situation at theauditorium was again discussed.Esmay informed the council thathe had priced a few light fixturesand will provide an exact price at alater date.The final item on the agendawas concerning the addition of astop sign at the intersection of Sec-ond Street and Kennedy Avenue.Dakota Mill and Grain hadapproached the city asking aboutswitching the stop signs fromKennedy Avenue to Second Street.With the DM&G expansion, truckswill no longer be driving throughtown, but rather taking Kennedy Avenue north, and passing thefootball field. They will be able toturn around, and go back the sameway, eliminating truck traffic intown. However, the stop sign onKennedy Avenue is a concern forloaded trucks, as the sign is at thetop of a hill.Kinsley said that he thinks thechanging of the signs is a bad idea.The stop signs have been in thatposition for as long as anyonecould remember. Kinsley said itwould be a hard transition for peo-ple, and since the views in theintersection are already obstruct-ed, there would be a concern foraccidents. The board made no deci-sion on the matter.The meeting adjourned at 8:15p.m. The council will meet for theJanuary meeting on Monday, Jan-uary 7 at 7:30 p.m.
