Volume 106Number 26January 10, 2013

The Weather Channel began as-signing names to big snowstormsin 2012. A blizzard that blasted theMidwest on Jan. 12, 1888, was sodestructive that it acquired severalnames: “The Children’s Blizzard,”“The Schoolchildren’s Blizzard”and “The Schoolhouse Blizzard.”The morning felt more like Aprilthan January: warm, calm andclear.Oscar Coursey, three of his sib-lings and their schoolmates were atrecess the morning of Jan. 12,1888, outside the schoolhouse neartheir homestead in southwesternBeadle County, playing in theirshirt sleeves, without hats or mit-tens. “Suddenly, we looked up andsaw something coming rolling to-ward us with great fury from thenorthwest, and making a loudnoise,” Coursey wrote in Pioneer-ing in Dakota. “It looked like along string of big bales of cotton,each one bound tightly with heavycords of silver, and then all tied to-gether with great silvery rope.” All the children had just gotteninside the schoolhouse when thestorm struck with such force that itnearly moved the building off itscobblestone foundation.George Duernberger had takenhis horses to a well about one-half mile from his homestead in FaulkCounty when one of the horses jerked the halter rope from hishand and started for the barn. A hurried glance to the northwestshowed him a gray bank.“Then the wind came. Every-thing was blotted out, and the traildisappeared, the horses’ headswere not visible … It was difficultto breathe and utterly impossibleto keep my eyes open against thedriving snow … The cold was pierc-ing,” according to Duernberger’saccount in The South Dakota His-torical Society’s bulletin The Wi-Iyohi. A brief break in the storm en-abled him to recognize a landmarkand realize where he was. He wasable to get his horses in the barnand start for the house. He wasguided to the house by the sound of his wife blowing on a trumpet.“It was but eighty minutes sinceI had left for the well. An eternity,however, had elapsed.”Sadie Shaw wrote her brotherand sister that the wind knockedher down when she attempted to goto the coal box about a rod (about5.5 yards) east of her sod house inthe Platte/Geddes area. Her hus-band had gone to get their childrenfrom school when he realized astorm was coming. He returnedhome safely after being in thestorm for about an hour, unsuccess-ful in his attempt to reach theschoolhouse.“Oh the agony of that hour noone can tell,” Shaw wrote in her let-ter contained in 900 Miles fromNowhere: Voices from the Home-stead by Steven R. Kinsella. “Thestorm grew wilder colder andthicker every moment until itseemed to breathe nothing butDeath and Death inevitable in itsevery gust. You could not see 3 feetfrom the window at times and not6 feet ahead all day.” A combination of gale winds,blinding snow and rapidly drop-ping temperatures made the stormdangerous. The Signal Station atHuron reported that the wind aver-aged 45 to 50 mph, with gusts up to60 mph. The temperature fell from20 degrees at noon to 17 degreesbelow zero at 10 p.m., further drop-ping to 28 degrees below zero dur-ing the night.The storm abated early on Jan.13. Shaw’s husband went for thechildren and found them all safe.Others were not as fortunate.The Wi-Iyohi listed the names of 178 people who perished in theblizzard in South Dakota. Manywho lay dead on the prairie werechildren who were caught on theirway home from school. In The Chil-dren’s Blizzard, author DavidLaskin states that about 500 peo-ple in the Dakotas, Nebraska andMinnesota perished in the storm.Coursey was one of the fortunateschoolchildren, as his teacher kepther flock of pioneer children in theschoolhouse while the storm ragedand into the long, cold night.In the morning of Jan. 13, theteacher saw that the storm haddied out, took the schoolchildren toher nearby claim shanty, fed themand sent them home.Coursey sat by his mother’s bed-side when she died in September1914. “The last thing she said to mebefore she passed away was this:‘Son, you will never know the bur-den that was lifted from my heartthe next morning after the BigBlizzard, when I looked out andsaw you four older children scam-pering home over the snow-drifts,when I was positively sure you hadall perished in the storm.’”

Duke Westerberg’s last day ascounty executive director of theHaakon/Jackson County FarmService Agency –United States De-partment of Agriculture was Janu-ary 3.He described his future plans byfirst saying that his brother-in-lawonce said, “ ‘There is no flexibilitylike not having a plan.’ I’ve alwaysliked that, and, right now, I’mpretty flexible.”It has been 33 years since West-erberg successfully interviewed forthe position in Philip. Before that,he graduated from Huron HighSchool and spent four years as anaircraft mechanic in the UnitedStates Air Force. He had graduatedfrom South Dakota State Univer-sity in 1983 with a bachelor of sci-ence in economics and inagricultural business. Back then,the FSA was the Agricultural Sta-bilization and Conservation Serv-ice. It merged with the FarmersHome Administration in 1995 tobecome today’s FSA.Westerberg went through a sixmonth training program where hevisited offices across South Dakota.“You visited other county FSA of-fices, I guess, to pick the brains of other FSA officers and their man-agement styles,” said Westerberg.Depending on the time of year, heand his staff assist producers withConservation Reserve Programbids, farm program sign up,acreage reporting, non-insurancecrop assistance program, commod-ity loans, emergency conservationprogram, and many other govern-ment programs.“You don’t find any better peopleanywhere, whether it’s workingwith the staff or the ag producers,”said Westerberg. He added, “Theycan get by a lot better without methan I can without them, and that’sobvious.”“It’s been a good run, it reallyhas, ups and downs like any job,but it’s treated me really well,” saidWesterberg. “Kids think I need tokeep working somewhere and Iagree with them.” He will fill muchof his time with what he alreadyenjoys doing video taping schooland community activities, using hiscomputer to edit the videos for in-dividuals and for the school’s chan-nel 19 broadcasts, and playing golf.“I tell people that I don’t want toquit working, I just want to quitworking for Uncle Sam,” said West-erberg.“I like to harass my wife (Pat),but I imagine my honey-do list isgoing to get pretty long,” said West-erberg. “I think she’s a little anx-ious about it. I told her that herpaycheck is part of my retirementplan –she didn’t think much of that.”

Jeremiah 9:23-24Peter was a professional fisherman. He knew how toread weather conditions, where to find the best placesto fish, and when to end an unproductive session. Be-cause of his expertise, he may have silently questionedthe reasonableness of Jesus’ instruction. Why let down the nets when an experienced team of fishermenhadn’t caught anything all night?At times God asks His children to act in ways that may not seem logical. His request might involveleaving a job or ministry that He provided only recently, taking on more responsibility when life alreadyfeels overloaded, or accepting an assignment that appears better suited for someone with a different skillset. Perhaps God’s plan makes no sense in view of age, finances, or health. Yet, because of the One whoasks, it will be the absolutely right thing to do. We must decide whether to do what is sensible by humanstandards or to obey God.The Bible talks about many people who had to make such a choice. Abraham was asked to sacrificehis son. Noah was told to build an ark on dry land because a flood was coming. Joshua was given a mil-itary strategy of marching around Jericho instead of attacking it. Gideon, the inexperienced fighter, wastold to send most of his warriors home before the battle (Judges 7:2-3).Don’t make the mistake of allowing human logic to dictate whether you follow God’s plan. Trust inHim as Peter and those other faithful believers did. When they chose to obey what the Lord was saying,they all experienced divine power released on their behalf.

Tressa Gabriel__________________ 
Tressa Gabriel, age 90, of Philip,S.D., died Tuesday, January 1,2013, at the Hans P. Peterson Me-morial Hospital in Philip.Tressa Belle Coleman was bornOctober 24, 1922, in Woodbine,Iowa, the daughter of Orrin Wes-ley and Goldia Belle (Thomas)Coleman. She lived near Pisgah,Iowa, with her parents and oldersister, Erma, until they left theirhome in the Loess Hills to move toHaakon County northwest of Philip, at the age of eight. Theytraveled at 45 mph in the Model TFord while their personal belong-ings and livestock were shipped toCottonwood on the train.On the farm, she helped milkcows, herd sheep, with chores rais-ing hogs and gardening. Hermother taught her to preserve veg-etables and to prepare wholesomemeals.Tressa attained an eighth gradeeducation at North Lincoln School.Being too far to walk, they rodehorseback when the weather per-mitted. In cold, snowy weatherTressa had a room and boarded at Axel Olson’s. An experience she and Ermatalked about often, was Erma tak-ing a rein from her horse’s bridle tokill a rattlesnake while she was onthe horse – something she didoften. One time, the snake caughtin the rein hooks, and the horsesspooked and ran full speed homewith the snake flying in the air be-hind.Tressa met her lifetime partnerwhen Floyd Gabriel arrived at herparents’ to purchase some hay.Floyd and Tressa developed a com-panionship that lasted a lifetime.Coleman’s were concerned aboutTressa and Floyd dating. For themto go anywhere, it was necessaryto take Erma and Frank, (Floyd’sbrother), along as chaperones.Tressa and Floyd were marriedMarch 17, 1941, in Philip. Theywent to Iowa and Nebraska to visitrelatives for a honeymoon. Quoteof Floyd’s taken from Tressa’sBride’s Book. “We got home in fineshape and found everything waso.k. We were a little wiser but justas foolish and wished our honey-moon to continue indefinitely.This marriage was truly made inheaven. They were business part-ners as well. At first they sum-mered sheep for neighbors as wellas themselves on land for whichthey borrowed money to purchase.When Floyd was away helpingneighbors whose family memberwere serving in the war, Tressawas responsible for their business. After Beverly was born, Tressaloaded her on the saddle and tookher to tend the sheep all day long.Their only rest was a nap in theshade of the sheep wagon whilethe sheep bedded down by waterduring the heat of the day.When Tressa was in late preg-nancy with Larry, Tressa, leadingBeverly, took a sheep buyer to viewthe herd. He told Floyd, “You wanttoo much for your sheep, but I feelsorry for your wife so I’ll give youwhat you want.”Cattle replaced the sheep intheir business. Tressa still rodehorseback. “Dixie,” her mare, wasstill very important in her life.In addition to Beverly and Larry,a sister, Ruby, brightened Tressa’slife. In 1981, Floyd, Tressa andRuby began traveling the UnitedStates. Tressa enjoyed continuedtrips, collecting state plates andshot glasses while seeing most of the continental United States andpart of Canada. Tressa became anexcellent map reader, instructingRuby where to turn. Branson, Mo.,was the highlight of her trips.She was active in the DowlingCommunity Church where shewas baptized. She was treasurerfor many years.Tressa’s hobbies included play-ing the piano, which was pur-chased in 1956 to replace thepump organ which she played byear. She also played the violin, em-broidered, scrapbooked her chil-dren’s activities and trips, andenjoyed reading historical fiction.Leaving to mourn her loss areher three children, BeverlyHamann and her husband, Herb,of Clear Lake, Larry Gabriel andhis wife, Charlotte, of Quinn, andRuby Gabriel of Pedro; a doubleniece, Cindy Nuzum, of Buffalo;four grandchildren; and six great-grandchildren.Tressa was preceded in death byher husband, Floyd, on February5, 1998; her parents; her only sib-ling, Erma Gabriel; and two great-grandchildren.Services were held Monday, Jan-uary 7, at the United MethodistChurch in Wall, with PastorHarold Delbridge officiating.Interment was at the WallCemetery. A memorial has been estab-lished.Arrangements were with theRush Funeral Chapel of Wall.Her online guestbook is avail-able at www.rushfuneralhome.com

Al-though it took him awhile to adjustto nursing home life and the peo-ple who cared for him, he becamevery fond of the employees andeven some of the residents.Mo was a man of few words inhis last few years of life. He couldgo days without anything to say,but when he knew you were listen-ing and trusted you, Mo engagedin conversation.Mo love his treats.

These bodies we run around insometimes cause us grief. I recalla time in the middle of last yearwhen I felt somewhat like a ram-bling wreck. There were justenough parts of me that hurt tomake it preferable to stay motion-less.At the time, I was still dealingwith a heel that had been givingme trouble for several months. Itwas a condition known as “plantarfasciitis” and involves inflamma-tion of a band of tissue that runsacross the bottom of your foot andconnects the heel bone to the toes.It was probably caused by sloppingaround the house in moccasinsthat had no proper arch supportand had also worn unevenly thinon the bottoms. The pain was at itsworst when I got up in the morn-ings and made me limp some for awhile.Then, in an effort to fix thingsaccording to Dr. K’s recommenda-tions, I started doing an exercisedesigned to bring relief. This in-volved placing the balls of yourfeet on a step and dropping theheels down as much as possible tostretch things. Well, that was allfine and well and did help some,but I obviously got too carriedaway so that my one arch startedto click when I moved and thensometimes hurt when I walked.Eventually I learned to repeat theexercises fewer times so as to avoidarch problems, and to just stretchlonger at the bottom of the cycle.Before catching on to that, of course, I had to deal with a click-ing arch.At the same time as the heeland arch were causing trouble, onesinus decided to plug up and causemisery. Despite my home cure of breathing in hot coffee steam andvapors as much as possible, it stillwould clog up part of the time andcause pressure and discomfort.Over-the-counter meds helpedsome when I remembered to takethem, and the sinus behaved itself part of the time, but still therewere times when nothing didmuch good.Adding to those things, I alsohad a wrist that throbbed when Imoved it wrong, and my back hadan occasional twinge. These lattertroubles were caused by a miscal-culation one day in leaning downto tend son Chance on the couch. Ithought I was going to lean on thearm of the couch when, in fact, Iwas only leaning on a pillow thatwas just enough off the arm to giveno support. As a result, I lost mybalance and dropped the short dis-tance to the floor. I obviouslylanded just wrong enough on thewrist to make it complain while, atthe same time, my back gottwisted a little. Neither of thesewas severe by any means, but theyboth occasionally reminded me tomove circumspectly.As you know, time is a greathealer in many cases, and all thesethings righted themselves eventu-ally—some with help from me andsome without. The heel thing wenton for many months but is now fi-nally gone thanks to buying archsupports and doing exercises. Theother conditions were fortunatelybrief. At present, my only com-plaint is little cracks in the skinaround my fingernails which areprobably caused by dryness andcold weather. I fix those by cover-ing them with a drop of SuperGlue. That works although re-peated treatments are sometimesnecessary. Other than that, the oldbod has been behaving itself of late.When I consider things in gen-eral, however, I realize how luckyI am healthwise. I have very littleto complain about. Although noone is probably going to hire me asa model for swimwear or under-wear, this body of mine still allowsme to mostly do what I want with-out causing much trouble. I canwalk, or even run if I want to. I candrive. I can eat almost anythingthat looks good to me and so on. Ihave needed to visit doctors veryinfrequently in my life. When Ilook at other people around me, Iknow I am very fortunate andblessed. Certain loved ones,friends or acquaintances havemuch more to deal with than I dosuch as those bothered by arthri-tis, worn-out joints, chronic painsof this and that, digestive miseries,and so on. These complicated bod-ies of ours have so many ways of going bad that, when they are op-erating smoothly, it is a majorcause for rejoicing.So, at the moment I am, thank-fully, not a rambling wreck—noteven close. Memories of being one,though, may prompt me to try toeat a little more sensibly this yearand to get more exercise. It mightbe a good idea to take good care of this body of mine so it can continueto serve me well. Guess I’ll at leastgive it a try.
It’s a Pain
Lookin’ Around
by Syd Iwan
A new bridge across the WhiteRiver near Perault’s is still sched-uled to be built this summer. Ac-cording to Floyd Iwan and BuddyManke, they were drilling testholes this last week to determinewhat needs to be done as far as pil-ings, etc. The current bridge is veryold and narrow so getting someequipment across it is tricky or im-possible. The work may take threeto six months and will be a greatinconvenience to those who livenearby since alternate routes areunhandy. For Mankes and Iversensand others close by, going to Murdowill involve a trip south to CedarButte, east to White River, andback north to Murdo. Going toKadoka will involve going southpast the England ranch, west overHorseshoe Butte, north toBelvidere and then west toKadoka. Although the alternateroutes may be scenic, they bothhave some stretches of road thatcan be quite difficult in wetweather.Floyd Iwan is scheduled forsome minor eye surgery this weekat the Regional Eye Clinic in RapidCity. It is designed to reduce pres-sure and avoid additional eye prob-lems. Floyd said the recent snow attheir place accounted for aboutthree-tenths of an inch of moisturewhen melted down. This was aboutthe only measurable precip thathas fallen there since last June.Floyd and Jane continue to collectmore grandchildren and greatgrandchildren. The current tally is29 grandchildren and eight greats.Three of those arrived this lastyear, and more are expected in thecoming year. Floyd said they arestill able to remember all thenames, but the birthdates and agesmay get a bit fuzzy from time totime.Buddy Manke and Peggy Martinmoved a new small building toBud’s this weekend that will be-come a certified kitchen for pro-cessing some of their gardenproduce for sale. They have a cou-ple of greenhouses and acres of gar-den for production of veggies andsuch. Bud said he has chickens inone of the greenhouses now thatare busily tilling the soil, eatingbugs, and adding fertilizer inpreparation for the coming season.Seeds have been ordered and planshave been made. Some seeds willbe started later this month. Wateris piped in from a nearby spring. According to Bud, this all startedout as a hobby but has somehownow grown into a job. Bud said hehas been tearing down part of abarn over by Cedar Butte this pastweek. There are two large sets of pig barns over that way for large-scale production that are currentlynot being used. The one close toWhite River was damaged by windand is mostly worn out so it willprobably no longer be used. Theone just north of Cedar Butte isstill useable but currently not inproduction. Bud also reported thecoyote population is reboundingfrom being decimated for a fewyears by mange.Jo Rodgers actually spent all of last week working at the MurdoPost Office where she is the officialpostmaster. She called it a Christ-mas miracle since she has beenrouted to various other post officesa lot in the last year and not beenat Murdo all that much.

Keyand Royal Addison celebrated alate Christmas with Jim and fam-ily the day before New Years. Theyalso helped chop some ice to watercattle.Chuck Willard was scheduledfor hip-replacement surgery inRapid City on Tuesday. This willslow him down for a number of weeks, but he hopes to be recoveredenough by branding season to helpwith that.

Casey lives farther on in Ne-braska but met Chuck and Merryat about the half way point fromhere to there.Glenn Freeman’s son, Jimmie,returned to Iowa this week to becloser to his kids and family.

Jump into Fitnesswith Jump Roping
Do you remember the last timeyou jumped rope? Memories of re-cess on the playground can take usback to our school days. Back then,skipping rope was considered a funway to play. Today, jump roping isan intense, moderate-impact phys-ical activity. Individuals striving toobtain their New Year’s resolutionsof getting fit may consider revivingtheir jump roping activities. It’s anexercise that lets you jump foryour health.There are several benefits to jump roping. It can be used as ameans to attain weight loss.Jumping rope for 30 minutes canburn approximately 300 calories.It is a great way to improve themuscle tone in your legs and lowerbody. It also increases cardiovascu-lar fitness. (Make sure to consultyour health care provider beforebeginning this type of exercise rou-tine.) Physical skills that can beimproved with jump roping in-clude better coordination, timingand balance.Jump roping is a simple activitythat burns a lot of calories and canbe done in any location with verylittle equipment. You only need a jump rope and athletic shoes withcushioned soles and good support.Proper footwear helps safeguardthe jumper from joint injury.Three different types of jumpropes include: cloth, speed andbeaded. Cloth ropes are heavierand slide on the floor easier. Thedownfall is that they get dirty andwear out easily. Speed style ropesare lightweight and made of vinylcord. They are recommended forinside use since they can weardown quickly on harsh surfaces.These ropes allow the highestnumber of turns per minute, re-sulting in an intense workout witha lot of calories burned. Beadedropes are the heaviest, are re-silient to harsh environments andkeep a good arc. They are made of plastic or polyurethane 1.5-inchlong segments with a nylon innercord. The segments or beads keepthe rope from tangling, which isgood for beginners.To determine the size of jumprope you need, grab the ends of therope, one in each hand. Step on thecenter of the rope. Pull the ends of the rope up towards your shoul-ders. The ends of the rope will beat armpit level if the rope is thecorrect length.It is estimated that 10 minutesof jumping rope (at 120 turns perminute) has the same benefit as jogging for 30 minutes. Here aresome jump roping basics:•Keep elbows close to yoursides, hold the handles firmly andkeep them positioned a little belowwaist level.•Make small circles with yourwrist when turning the rope tomake the rope rotate around thebody.•The actual jumps should beonly one inch from the ground.Landing should be soft and alwayson the balls of your feet.Warm-up exercises are very im-portant to do prior to jump roping.This can reduce the risk of injuryto muscles. After jump roping,walk slowly for a few minutes tocool down.No matter how hectic yourschedule gets, you can take your jump rope with you almost any-where.
