 Visual artist Mary Wipf willconduct workshops for local stu-dents as part of the South Dakota Arts Council’s Artists In Schools &Communities program. The artistwill work with various grade levelsduring the residency in JonesCounty from February 25-March1.Wipf has participated in nearly600 weeks of residencies through-out South Dakota in more than 75school systems, communitylibraries and special needs institu-tions. She believes art - the cre-ative expression of one’s uniqueself - helps to satisfy the need forcommunication at a basic level.“Through art, we experience abroadened and more intenseawareness of ourselves and theworld around us,” Wipf said. “Arthelps us to find truth and under-standing. The children of SouthDakota are our most importantresources. It is imperative thattheir creativity be sparked andcultivated to enrich their lives andat the same time enhance societyas a whole.”Her residency may include slidepresentations, student classroomwork, teacher in-service work-shops and community presenta-tions. Wipf uses various media,such as printmaking, drawing,papermaking, marbling or creat-ing of a mural. Wipf’s paper mar-bling residencies are regarded byteachers as excellent opportunitiesfor integrating art with other sub- jects such as science, history orEnglish.This program is sponsored bythe Jones County School Districtand the Book and Thimble Club,with support provided by theSouth Dakota Arts Council withfunds from the State of SouthDakota, through the Departmentof Tourism and State Develop-ment, and the National Endow-ment for the Arts.

Schreiber filled theboard in on the recent annualaudit. It came back with no correc-tions. The audit was reviewed bythe state and accepted on Friday,Next, new business was dis-cussed. Brunskill informed thecommissioners of three surplusitems, including two office chairsand a printer. Said items wereestimated at zero value and are tobe disposed of.Sheriff Weber entered the meet-ing and presented the commission-ers with his report. He also spokeabout Deputy Sylva’s salary dis-crepancy again. He gave theminformation about the salaries of surrounding counties’deputies.Louder questioned whether ornot Weber had spoken to the cityabout the issue yet. Weber said thecity is looking into law enforce-ment grants.He then presented options andestimates for potential new lawenforcement vehicles. He said thatan estimated $4,000 to $5,000 ontop of the initial vehicle cost wouldbe needed for necessary items suchas cages and light bars. Weber toldthe commissioners that two vehi-cles are needed, but there isn’t abig rush to purchase them.Iwan asked what is next con-cerning the purchase of new lawenforcement vehicles. Anker saidthey could vote on the issue at thenext meeting; however, he isagainst buying two vehicles rightaway.Kinsley, the 4-H secretary andJones County Emergency Manag-er, approached the commissionersabout a storage issue in her office.She questioned what old paper-work, if any, could be archived.Kinsley also said she neededdirection from the commissionersabout how much extension workshe is expected to do. She said thatshe has the pesticide applicatortest in her office and available tothe county. She can administer thetest. Kinsley then said that thecounty’s hay probe is broken, andasked who is responsible forreplacing it or buying replacementparts. Anker advised her to callthe regional office in Pierre. Hesaid, if it is the responsibility of the county, maybe the countyneeds to start charging for servicessuch as hay probing and watertesting.The meeting then reverted backto the possibility of new lawenforcement vehicles. The com-missioners discussed featuresneeded, as well as those not need-ed.Royer was next to address themeeting and present the roadreport. He said he didn’t have any-thing new to discuss, besides thatthey have been blading due to theadded moisture. After brief discus-sion, the meeting adjourned at3:45 p.m.February 8.Ball told the board that theschool incurred additional officiat-ing expenses for the InvitationalTournament due to the storm andpostponing of games. He also saidthat the senior class is working onplans for their senior trip to Den-ver.Ball asked the board to look atthe 2013-2014 proposed school cal-endar. He said that they can dis-cuss any potential changes later.One issue he wanted the board toconsider was to start the schoolyear on a Wednesday to allowMonday and Tuesday for teacherinservice days, and to ease stu-dents into the school year. Added discussion items are asfollows: the Kadoka Area SchoolDistrict contacted Ball about thepossibility of sharing a foreign lan-guage teacher instead of offering aforeign language class through theDDN. Mathews asked how muchthe DDN classes cost the school.Ball replied that they have noexpense from these classes. Hesaid if they accepted Kadoka’s pro-posal, a teacher would travel toMurdo to teach the class. Thiswould cause for the rearranging of schedules, due to the time changeand so as not to interfere with anyrequired courses.Greg Kronkite of Draper hasbeen working with Ball, AnneGeisler and Bev Ball on the fund-ing and donation of new exerciseand technology equipment for thecurrent weight and exerciserooms.

Therefore we have beenburied with him by baptism intodeath, so that, just as Christ wasraised from the dead by the gloryof the Father, so we too mightwalk in newness of life.” 
(Romans 6:1-4)There’s an old saying that goes:“You can’t teach an old dog, newtricks.” Whoever said or wrotethatwas totally wrongorwasn’t a Christian. If you are aChristian, a follower of the LordJesus Christ, then expect newthings to happen in your life andexpect some changes. God sentHis Son Jesus Christ to shake upthe status quo of this world andturn it upside down.As I tellfolks, “Jesus Christ came to com-fort the afflicted and afflict thecomfortable.” We are a quite com-fortable lot who need to haveJesus Christ afflict us and makeusinto the people God wants usto be.The Christian author MaxLucadowrites:“God loves us just the way we are, but He does-n’t want us to stay that way.God wants us to be just likeJesus.” So, that is what we arestriving to do in this life beforewe go on to eternitybemadein the image of Jesus Christ.The Bible tells us “For God soloved the world that He gave HisOnly Son…” (John 3:16).Paulwrites in Philippians 2:7-8 aboutthe “emptying of Christ” for oursakes and what He sacrificed forus: “…but emptied himself, tak-ing the form of a slave, beingborn in human likeness. Andbeing found in human form, hehumbled himself and becameobedient to the point of death— evendeath on a cross.” He didthis so that we who are “baptizedinto Christ Jesus,might walk innewness of life.” We die to our“old dog” ways and gladly acceptand follow in the newness that isChrist Jesus. And, by doing so,we learn what it means to “givesomething up,” to “make the sac-rifice for Christ’s sake,” to makeus better people, who are one inChrist Jesus.Let’s reflect for a moment. Astrue followers of Jesus Christ,what might we “sacrifice” in ourlives for his sake to show that weare truly committed to Him?Let’s think about this…Hmmmm! What could we give up —sacrifice—for Lent?•Give upTV, cell-phoneandcomputer timefor some“God-time.”•Give upjunk food forhealthyfood.•Give up eating one meal everyday and drink water and healthyliquids instead or “fast” one day aweek (check with your doctorfirst).•Give upthat after work drink,and instead spend quality timewith your family.•Give up driving short distancesand walk instead. Walking isgood exercise.•Give up any and all forms of gamblingit’sbad steward-ship of what God has entrustedto our care.•Give up “sleeping-in” on Sundaymorning andgo to church andworship God.Giving up something like“Brussels sprouts” for Lent,espe-cially if you don’t like or don’t eat“Brussels sprouts” anyway, reallyisn’t making much of a sacrifice.Be creative and give up some-thing, not‘til it hurts, rather“give-up” something ‘til it helps.Perhaps you will get closer toGod.The “you can’t teachan old dognew tricks” philosophy is just anexcuse for not wanting God tochange you into a new person forHis plan, His purpose.
“He hastold you, O mortal, what is good;and what does the Lord require of  you but to do justice, and to lovekindness, and to walk humblywith your God?”

The tentative scheduleallows for a trip to the campusWellness Center, a student paneland a campus tour.“It’s about getting students whoare in the medical career explo-ration phase into a college class-room setting, into health carefacilities and time with health carepractitioners,” said Greg Heiberg-er, camp coordinator. “The breadthand depth of this experience forstudents is remarkable.”Since its inception, Health Pro-fessions Career Camp has beenopen to no more than 25 students.The small group gave the youngpeople more opportunities for one-on-one time with faculty but alsolimited the number of interestedstudents who could actuallyattend.This summer, however, thecamp will accept 50 participants.This larger number will be dividedinto two groups during the campin order to preserve the personalaspect of the experience.The cost of the camp, includingfood, lodging and all other expens-es is $100, due by April 15.

Deputy Sylva
assisted the JC Amb. with a medical call
inMurdo.Country-of Origin Labeling(COOL) provides valuable infor-mation about the origin of the foodwe purchase for our families. I amglad that Senator Johnson andSenator Thune, along with 29United States Senators, signedonto a bipartisan letter to USDA and the US Trade Representativeto keep COOLrequirements inplace. Because Congress passedCOOL, we now have a legal rightto know the origin of our food. Thismakes good, common sense.Unfortunately, the World TradeOrganization (WTO) is trying toforce the United States to weakenour COOLlaw. Thanks to SenatorJohnson and Senator Thune forreaching across the aisle to defendCOOLagainst the WTO's attack.

The Spirit of Holinessby Pastor Ricky Kurth
“… Jesus Christ… was… declared to be the Son of God… according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead” (Rom. 1:3,4).What does it mean that the Lord’s resurrection declared Him to be the Son of God according to the spirit of holiness? Well, have you ever heard it saidthat there is a difference between the letter of thelaw and the spirit of the law? When you drive 66 m.p.h. in a 65 m.p.h. zone, you are breaking the letter of the law, but you are not breaking the spirit of the law. The spirit of the law is for you to drive safely and responsibly. This is why most police officers will not ticket you for going one mile per hourover the speed limit.The letter of the law of holiness is expressed well in Proverbs 17:15:“He that justifieth the wicked, and he that condemneth the just, even they both are abomination to the Lord.”But isn’t that what God did at the Cross, when He condemned “that Just One” (Acts 22:14) and justified wicked sinners such as ourselves? In so doing,He surely broke the letter of the law of holiness.Or did He? For those who would argue that God was not acting in accord with the law of holiness, we would reply that when God the Father took your sins and placed them on the Lord Jesus Christ at Calvary, He justly condemned the One who was made wicked (II Cor. 5:21). Then when youbelieved the gospel, God took His righteousness and put it on you, enabling Him to justify the ones who were made the very righteousness of God inChrist (II Cor. 5:21). The resurrection of Christ then proved that this was also done in perfect accord with the spirit of holiness, for Christ’s sacrifice sure-ly satisfied the just demands of God’s righteousness.If you haven’t yet trusted Christ as your Savior, however, God has not yet given you the righteousness that is available only in Christ. Speaking of theLord Jesus, the Apostle Paul says,“In whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace” (Eph. 1:7).The forgiveness of sins purchased by Christ’s blood is only available in Him. If you are not in Christ, you are still “in trespasses and sins” (Eph. 2:1).“Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved” (Acts 16:31).
