Acts 9:1-20Many Christians like playing it safe by gathering asmany facts as possible, analyzing the options, and mak-ing choices in order to be reasonably certain of the out-come. We tend to label risk “undesirable” because itcould end up causing loss and heartache; we fear unwanted results as much as we dread missing out onour dreams. But not only that—we are also afraid of looking foolish or incompetent, incurring financialdifficulty, or facing physical danger. From a human viewpoint, eliminating uncertainty makes sense.But what is God’s perspective? Are there times that Christians are to take risks? The answer is a re-sounding yes, when He is the one asking us to step out of our comfort zone. From the Lord’s viewpoint,there is no uncertainty, because He has control over all things and He will never fail to accomplish Hisgood purposes (Eph. 1:11).The Bible is full of real people who took risks to obey the Lord. One was Ananias, whom God sent tominister to the newly converted Saul. Ananias risked his reputation and his life to comply. Another wasSaul himself, who was told to preach to the Jews the very gospel he and they had so violently opposed.By focusing on God, His character, and His promises, both men obeyed despite uncertainty, doubt, andfear.Spiritual maturity is hampered when the Christian refuses to obey God. Sometimes that involves leav-ing what is safe or familiar. What risk is the Lord calling you to take? He understands your wariness,but He’ll never let you down. Step out in obedience, and watch what He does to grow your faith.
Halitosis is a fishy and fancymedical word that stands for badbreath. Years ago I heard it putthis way: “The Polish Army musthave marched through my mouthlast night.” Not only is it sociallyoffensive, a foul odor coming frombetween the lips can also reflect aserious underlying dental or med-ical problem.Probably the most significantcause for bad breath is dry mouthand coated tongue, often resultingfrom medicines like decongestantsfor stuffy nose or pills for urinaryincontinence. Dry mouth can alsobe due to mouth breathing, aging,or to an immune disease, which af-fects the salivary glands. No mat-ter the cause, without saliva notonly will the breath turn foul, butteeth fall out. Treat this by avoid-ing mouth-drying medicines whenpossible, sucking on sugar-freelemon drops or gum, and consult-ing a physician or dentist. Alsobrushing the tongue to remove the“coat” will go a long way to im-prove one’s breath.Periodontal disease with plaque,gingivitis or bacterial infection insinuses or the lung can certainlycause the odor of rotting. Regulardental and medical health care canhelp avoid or treat these condi-tions.It almost goes without sayingthat smoking or smokeless tobaccocauses doggy breath. Avoid thesebad habits.Of course garlic and onion givetheir odor after absorption intoyour bloodstream, which is carriedto the lungs, and then transferredto the breath. Mouthwash or mintswill only cover-up until time re-solves the odor by breaking thechemical down that is being car-ried in the blood stream.You can escape the plodding Pol-ish Army… Remember that badbreath makes a compelling case forgood brushing and flossing habitsand for regular dental and medicalcare.
Rick Holm, M.D.,
ball Livestock and March 12 at St.Onge Livestock in Newell. Allmeetings start at 6:30 pm.Soon the Senate will hearHB1087, the so-called Sentinel Billwhich would allow teachers, ad-ministrators, or staff to become“authorized personnel” and carry agun in school if the local schoolboard approves. I believe that cur-rent law is adequate in that it al-ready allows schools to have aschool resource officer. An officer of the law should be the only “autho-rized” person with a weapon onschool grounds. While we all wantto keep kids safe, I believe that al-lowing teachers and staff to carryguns in schools only increases thepossibility of accident, liability, andwill likely create intense publicpressure whatever the local boarddecides. This passed 42-27 in theHouse and now it will be up to theSenate.Proponents claim that schoolsare known to be gun-free zones andthis increases our children’s vul-nerability. But almost all placeswhere families gather are likely tobe gun free. How far do we go?Should we make sure armed volun-teers are at each of our churchservices, Sunday Schools, ballgames, city parks, movie theatresand pizza places? Do we reallywant our children to feel that theirSD school is so at-risk that wemust allow teachers to carryweapons? There’s a lot to thinkabout, but let’s not forget to thinkabout who really matters -- ourkids and grandkids and how thiswill make them feel.I invite you to contact me withyour questions and concerns onthese topics or any of interest toyou. I may be reached at 605-685-4241 or Sen.Bradford@state.sd.usWe’ve just completed our 4thweek of the 2013 Session. In theSenate Health and Judiciary Com-mittees on which I serve, we havebeen seeing an increase of bills toreview. As a rancher myself, I knowthe importance of agriculture toour SD economy. I’d like to share afew facts which highlight just howimportant this industry is to ourstate. Ag is SD’s #1 industry with a$20.9 billion dollar economic im-pact. In 2012, no state in the coun-try derived a larger percentage of its Gross Domestic Product fromagriculture than SD. We actuallyget 10.9% of our GDP from Agricul-ture. The SD Department of Agri-culture works to promote anddevelop agriculture as well managedivisions within the departmentsuch as conservation and forestry,wildland fires and the State Fair.The SD Department of Ag re-ceives a total of $16.6 million foroperations ($5.7 million of its fund-ing from the federal government;$3.8 million from the State GeneralFund; and $6.7 million from OtherSources). These other sources areprimarily check off dollars for com-modity education and promotionprograms. Each and every pro-ducer in South Dakota who pays acheck off fee contributes to thework of promoting our agriculturecommodities. Some of the goals forthe Department of Ag in the futurewill continue to focus on facilitatingincreased livestock production inSD. Those of you interested inhearing more on this topic shouldconsider attending one SD Dept. of Ag’s meetings, “Next Generation of Livestock Production.” These fo-rums are held in conjunction withSDSU. The two meetings closest toour District will be Feb. 28 at Kim-

I also enjoyed attendingthe SD School Superintendents Re-ception, Community Healthcare Association of the Dakota’s, Habi-tat For Humanity/HomeBuilders/Realtors and SD LandTitle receptions. It was great to seefaces from back home!I also want to take this opportu-nity to congratulate Kevin Ellis,Black Hills State University chem-istry major from Oglala.

Another busy week at Pierre. OnTuesday HB 1119 and HB 1133were brought to the education com-mittee. HB 1119 was brought be-fore the education committee byprime sponsor Rep. Kathy Tyler,District 4. This bill would have es-tablished a school-to-work grantprogram in the Department of Ed-ucation. The purpose of the grantprogram was to support partner-ships among school districts, localemployers, and communities thatare formed to assist high schoolseniors, who may not pursue post-secondary education, in their tran-sition from high school to theworkforce. HB 1133 was presentedby prime sponsor, Rep. Munstrom,District 7. This bill was to establishan innovation grant program forschool districts. Both bills had pos-itive points, but neither bill had adollar amount to implement theprograms. Both bills were moved tothe 41st day.I was scheduled to introduce abill to Education Committee on the6th of February, but due to anotherbill being moved from the scheduleI was asked to present it this week.HB 1176 was to define the wordtruant. The state of South Dakotadoes not have a definition of truanton the books. Twenty-six stateshave a definition of truant andthree of those states are NorthDakota, Minnesota and Wyoming.The Department Of Ed. came outto oppose the bill, stating, “Theywant it left up to local control.” Myintent was for the State of SouthDakota to send a clear message onthe importance of children attend-ing school on a regular basis. Ourteachers are expected to meet stan-dards on mandated student assess-ment tests and we need to givethem every opportunity to meetthose expectations. HB 1176 was abill that was no cost to the taxpay-ers while sending a strong messageof importance on regular studentattendance. The bill was moved tothe 41st day by a vote of 10 yea and5 nay. I will reintroduce it againnext year.Other bills of interest thatpassed from the house floor:HB 1049 FOR AN ACT ENTI-TLED, an act to transfer the valueadded agriculture sub-fund from

Miriam Hallock _________________
Miriam Louise Hallock, 78,Sturgis, died unexpectedly Thurs-day, January 31, 2013, at SturgisRegional Hospital. This tragic lossis immeasurable for her family, herfriends, and her community.Miriam was born in St. Cloud,Minn. on January 15, 1935, toNewton and Louise (Howe) Olson,but she was a South Dakota girlthrough and through. She gradu-ated from Rapid City Central in1952, and after a brief stint tryingout the "big city" life in Minneapo-lis, she returned to Philip, S.D. inthe summer of 1954 where she metand married Morris Gene Hallock.The love affair that was Morrisand Miriam's marriage spannedalmost 60 years and in the end em-bodied all that Miriam was - a tire-less, supportive, and loving wifewho journeyed through a life of service, and publishing with herhusband always maintaining astrong personal identity of herown.Miriam found incredible joy inmusic and bridge. She believed un-equivocally in her God and encour-aged all those around her to findsolace and peace through atten-dance, worship, and involvementat church. Miriam also found waysto help her community whether itwas to deliver a meal to a soul thatfound themselves shut-in, raisemoney for disabled children orvisit a friend that needed comfortand love; she was a relentless andever present force in the lives of those around her.Miriam was also the mother of three girls that she loved to thevery depths of her being. Uncondi-tional is the only way to describethe relationships she had with herchildren and by extension, thoseloved by her children. She openedher heart and home to all thattouched her family's life with gra-ciousness, food and a place to laytheir heads, knowing they weresafe because Miriam was there-steady, strong and sure.In 1983, Miriam became Nanawith the birth of her first grand-child, and though it is hard to be-lieve that a person so giving couldbecome even more so, Miriam did.To the very last day of Miriam'slife, she was working to make thelives of those around her easier.She is survived by her husband,Morris G.Hallock, Sturgis; daugh-ters, Debra (Walter) Shine, SanRafael, CA, Lori (Chuck) Kaiser,Fallon, NV, Karen Hallock, RapidCity, SD, and Chris Brady,Modesto, CA; and her grandchil-dren, Devin Bearden, San Rafael,CA, Tessa (Luke) Mickelson, RapidCity, Chase Kaiser, Fallon, NV,and Matthew Hallock Kaiser, Fal-lon, NV.Mariam is preceded in death byher parents, and her brother, BobOlson.Funeral services were heldTues., Feb. 5, 2013, at 11:00 a.m.at the First Presbyterian Churchwith Rev.
