The Faith City Council had oneof their lengthiest meetings onJune 4th. Council members metwith the Faith School Board to re-view and discuss the agreementbetween the two entities for thenew safe room grant, and to hearfrom two representative from theKeystone XL Pipeline on the con-struction workforce camps (mancamps).The Girls Scouts were on theagenda first. Angela Ostrandercame before Council to get someinput for the placement of a signthey are having made for theroadside park, and a date to com-memorate it. They also have someflowers to put in. Lowes is donat-ing mulch for a 16x30 area. An-gela said the Girls Scouts havebeen working on this project forthree years and would like to getit done. One of the trees theyplanted was broken by a vehicleand the owner paid for replace-ment of it, plus an additional one,both smaller. Mayor Haines saidthe playground will be movedthere so the sign just needs to beout of the way of it.Garnet Gaaskjolen visited withCouncil about Arrow Transit BusService. She talked with Arrowand they would like to have$1,000 to continue the servicehere for the balance of the year.The Meade Co. Commissionersdeclined their request for fundingearlier. She said they will stop inFaith once a month. There aresome here who have no vehicle toget them to appointments, etc. inthe Hills. She wondered if Councilwould be willing to give $50 toanyone from here needing tocatch a ride on the bus. Thatwould be cheaper than giving the$1,000. Mayor Haines agreedthey need to get the service backhere on a regular basis. Inghramwondered if they could meet with Arrow. Council tabled their deci-sion until they get more informa-tion. A temporary liquor license wasissued for the Lone Tree Bar forthe Fordyce/Humble weddingdance at the fairgrounds on July27th.Council approved the SecondReading of Ordinance 305 for thesupplemental appropriation of $10,000 for the fire department’struck. At this time the agreementwith the school for the safe roomwas discussed in length. Severalquestions concerning the pay-ments, bids, etc. were asked. Theagreement states that the schoolwill pay all except the $100,000the city will pay. Bret Hansonwanted it known that the schoolisn’t going to be able to come upwith $400,000. Atty. Bogue ex-plained that they would not goahead with the project if the twodon’t agree on the bid. They haveno intention of letting it be morethan the school can afford, but aswith all construction one can ex-pect overrun of expenses. Boguesaid that no one had given him alimit as to how much the schoolcould afford. As the school will beusing it for more than a saferoom, the expense of the cafeteriaand gym area would be theirs.School board chairman Johnsonsaid she understood the citywouldn’t accept the bid until theschool board sees it also. Otherquestions concerning the pay-ments, warranty, stocking thesafe room, etc. were posed toBogue. Council approved theagreement with the new changesto be made prior to the schoolboard approving it, pending finalreview by Bogue and Nicole fromEmergency Management. Thebids can be rejected if neither en-tity is comfortable with the proj-ect cost, and other arrangementscan’t be worked out. Once thebuilding would be completed, thecity would turn ownership over tothe school.Mayor Haines opened thehearing for the Faith Stock Showliquor and malt beverage licenseshearing at 7:30. Stock Show pres-ident Colt Haines stated theywould like to add liquor to beserved under the tent. LonnyCollins visited with DebbieBrown earlier about moving thetent from in from of his businessso his customers could park. Hewas hoping they could move itdown the street further. JonCollins said the electricity wouldhave to be moved then. MayorHaines said they would have toreadvertise if they move the loca- As the weather warms up andthe risk of mosquito bites in-creases now is the time for SouthDakotans to get in the habit of using insect repellent to preventWest Nile virus (WNV).“Just as we prepare for flu sea-son each fall, we need to be pre-pared for the West Nile virusevery summer,” said Dr. LonKightlinger, State Epidemiologistfor the South Dakota Departmentof Health. “West Nile virus can bea serious, even fatal, illness butthe good news is we can all reduceour risk with a few simple precau-tions.”Kightlinger said people canprevent mosquito bites and re-duce their risk of WNV by:•Using mosquito repellents(DEET, picaridin, oil of lemon eu-calyptus, or IR3535) and limit ex-posure by covering up.•Limiting time outdoors fromdusk to midnight when Culexmosquitoes are most active. Culexare the primary carrier of WNVin South Dakota.•Getting rid of standing waterthat gives mosquitoes a place tobreed.•Supporting local mosquitocontrol efforts.These precautions are espe-cially important for people at highrisk for complications from WNV.This includes individuals over 50,pregnant women, transplant pa-tients, and people who have dia-betes, high blood pressure or ahistory of alcohol abuse.Since its first human WNVcase in 2002, South Dakota hasreported more than 2,000 cases,including 29 deaths. SouthDakota cases have occurred asearly as June but peak transmis-sion is July through early Sep-tember.Learn more at the depart-ment’s website, westnile.sd.gov,or the SDSU Extension site,www.sdstate.edu/sdces/issues/wnv.cfm.

tion. Lonny Collins opposed thepresent location via telephone. Approval of the temporaryliquor license was then discussedfurther. They can move the tentto the next block, to be placedanywhere within that block, aslong as it doesn’t block the crossstreet. With a tie vote on the orig-inal location, Mayor Haines brokethat tie with a no vote. Councilthen approved the license for the2nd block of Main Street, and themalt beverage license for theJune roping at the fairgrounds.Two representatives from theKeystone XL Pipeline shared in-formation on the constructionworkforce camp (man camp) thatwill be put in at Howes. Accordingto the rep these camps are self-contained. There will be 600 bedsand 250 rv spaces in an 80 acrefenced area, on Dean Wink’s land,complete with 24/7 security, cafe-teria service, groceries, medicalservice, etc. These guys will work10 hour days, 6 days a week, sonot a lot of idle time. We may seesome of them in town once inawhile, mostly weekends. Somemay come in to sporting events just for a break. Families don’tusually travel with them so thereshouldn’t be any increase inschool enrollment. The servicestations will see the biggest busi-ness, for the purchase of dieselfuel. They have 8 of these campsalong the line, three of those inSouth Dakota. The camp wll bemaintained for 12-18 months, de-pending on weather. Faith hasnothing to worry about with thiscamp; it won’t be anything likeWilliston, ND. Mayor Haines willbe taking a tour of one of thecamps next week.The First Reading of Ordi-nance 306 for potential problemsfrom unexpected developmentpressure (actually a zoning ordi-nance) was discussed at length. Atty. Bogue had a different ver-sion than their initial one. Mem-bers discussed the requirementsfor new buildings and spacing re-quirements for temporary camp-grounds. Karen Inghram said shefelt the spacing should be 20’ be-tween campers for fire safety is-sues. After hearing about theman camps members decided the

.Common Core is a set of stan-dards for math and English devel-oped largely by the GateFoundation money and pushed bythe Obama administration andNational Governors Association.It defines what every school childshould know from grade 1-12. Ithas a packet for teacher evalua-tion for the federally funded testsdesigned to insure schools areteaching Common Core.40 states hurriedly adopted itbefore the standards were writtenin response to Obama’s advance-ment of a$4 billion dollar grant!It was promoted by Constitu-tional Governor Mitch Danielsand State Superintendent of Pub-lic Schools, Tony Bennett, an upand coming rising GOP star.Only Nebraska, Texas, Alaskaand Virginia have declined. Min-nesota adopted only the Englishpart.Two Indianapolis mothers,Heather Crussin and Erin Tuttlenotice that their children’sCatholic school math homeworkhad declined. Memorization froma script was the practice of Com-mon Core, and few novels wereread. Upon checking with otherparents, they learned that no onehad any idea about the curricu-lum change. R. James Milgram, amath professor at Stanford with-held his approval on the grant forthese reasons. Andrew Porter states thatCommon Core is written at a lowlevel and has no resemblance tothe high achievement in othercountries.Emmett McGroarty was a veryimportant person in the journeyof Heather and Erin to take downCommon Core. Other helpful per-sons or groups were: Pioneer In-stitute’s Jamie Gass, HooverInstitution’s Bill Evers and theHeritage Foundation’s LindseyBurke as well as the indispensibleIndiana Tea Party.McGroarty and Jane Robbinsat the American Principle Projectwere unique.

Heart Disease chooses itsclientele indiscriminately. It doesnot matter what color of the rain-bow your skin is, if you are maleor female, your age or what partof the world you come from. Itlooks at all of us without preju-dice. If you give heart disease achance you could become one of its clients
you have the abil-ity to STOP it before it starts orhave a great amount of control if you have been told you have heartdisease. Heart disease kills morepeople each year than all cancerscombined.
 We all have only one heartand keeping it healthy shouldbe one of our main goalsthroughout the year.
We canlive without many of the otherparts of our body because we haveduplicates such as two eyes, twokidneys, two legs, two arms. Youare probably thinking, “Well whatabout the brain- we only have oneof them”. Yes that is true but theheart pumps blood and oxygen tothe brain to keep it alive so thebottom line is we cannot livewithout our hearts pumping well.Our heart weighs about 9-12ounces (weight of a full pop can)and is about the size of our hand.The heart works ceaselessly,beating 100,000 times a day, 40million times a year–in totalclocking up three billion heart-beats over an average lifetime. Itkeeps the body freshly suppliedwith oxygen and nutrients, whileclearing away harmful wastematter.Keeping our heart healthy isan everyday challenge. Poor dietand little to no exercise can putour health in jeopardy. Makingbetter choices in our diet such aseating an apple or orange insteadof a candy bar or bag of chips canmake a difference. Impulse buy-ing of convenience or fast foodsthat are often high calorie andhigh salt items can get us in trou-ble by increasing our risk of:weight gain, increased choles-terol, high blood pressure, dia-betes and heart disease.If carefully chosen, snacks canfill nutritional gaps and boost en-ergy without causing weight-gainor other health worries. Here aresome tips for heart healthy snack-ing:1. Drinking a glass of water be-fore grabbing a snack can helpcurb your appetite and also helpskeep you hydrated. We lose about2 liters of fluid a day through nat-ural processes but many peopledo not replace this fluid and be-come chronically dehydrated. De-hydration can lead to daytimefatigue, unable to concentrate,headaches and muscle weakness.2. Plan your snack ahead of time so you do not just grab any-thing. If you want finger food,check out the fruit and vegetableisles at the grocery store or graba granola bar, cheese, nuts, pret-zels or trail mix for healthy op-tions.3. Be aware of portion size,don’t fall victim to portion distor-tion. Check the nutrition label tosee how many servings are in thecontainer. Many snacks havemore than one serving in thepackage.4. Avoid using snacks as a com-fort when stressed or upset. Trygoing for a walk or doing someother physical activity instead.5. Avoid all day nibbling. Limitsnacks to every 3-4 hours.6. Watch the kinds of carbohy-drates you eat. Carbohydratesfrom sugars and sweets providequick energy followed by an en-ergy crash. Look for items likenuts, seeds and beans for longlasting energy.7. If you just have to have somechips or cookies, choose the lowerfat, lower sodium varieties andeat them in moderation.8. Be a smart shopper. Don’t besuckered by "low-fat" and "all nat-ural" claims. An "all natural"product may be filled with sugar,which is in fact a natural ingredi-ent. "Low-fat" products often have just as many calories as their full-fat counterparts. Read the nutri-tion label before buying to seewhat you are really getting.9. When in doubt about whatto do go back up to tip numberone.Keeping our hearts healthyshould be one of the top prioritiesin our lives.

Hrt Diss is th #1 killr f ll ppl
By Kendra Enright R.N.
The list is endless of how we in-dividually recall our fathers. Eventhe same memories can seem torun the gamut from smotheringand vicarious to keeping an aloof distance. A curious combination of words can fly us back to ouryounger years, because that washow dad used to say those words. A scent, be it of car oil, pipe to-bacco or an aftershave, can putDad right in front of us. The waythe water blindingly reflects thesun through the reeds, the three-toned car rumbling by on theroad, the worn easy chair at ayard sale, all make the eye blinkand we see Dad. The heat of a car-pet burn from roughhousing inthe living room, the slime of grease from a old engine, a dustyand gritty coat of dirt reminiscentof the ball park, all are touches of Dad.Remember being spanked? Orwas the disappointment in Dad’seyes over your behavior a farworse punishment? Was it alaugh and a challenging “Oh,yeah?” or a quiet aging behind theeyes when you first called him“Old man?” As a son, did you re-ally have “the talk” about girlswith him? As a daughter, did yourfirst few dates actually face thetraditional inquisition with himwhen the young men picked youup? Was it an unspoken truththat Dad could actually do thedishes if Mom asked or she had tobe gone for a few days?“Daddy, Daddy, don’t let go of the bike!” And he had already letgo and was trying to not gasp forair while jogging alongside.It was not Mom’s place, butwas Dad’s duty to break the newsto you about your childhood dog. At the time, only Mom thought tosuspect that while Dad was dig-ging the final resting place, hewas crying, too.One day you found Dad’s walletstill on his dresser, and a photo of you was in it. Those silly picturesof you from grade school are hid-den away in the albums, butguess who has them memorized?Mom finally breaks down andtakes some of your art work off of the refrigerator, and, mysteri-ously, someone puts them backup. Mom may be the one whophoned repeatedly to check on youwhen they were gone that firsttime overnight, but you couldhear her reporting to him as if hehad insisted on the calls. You maybe 75, but Dad still calls you kid.Who taught you the differencebetween a regular and Phillipsscrewdriver? Who didn’t caremuch for Monopoly, but once pres-sured into playing could beat youevery time? You get up for a drinkof water, and who is still staringat the TV, and its a sob storymovie?He may be almost perfect inyour eyes, but it is Dad who al-ways wants his kids to do betterthan he did. It’s one thing to seeMom holding her newborn grand-child, it’s another to see Dad doingthe same thing. Everybody tellsstories, but whose are listened tomore intently because those sto-ries are of events seldom spokenof? It’s unsettling that, the olderyou get, the smarter your Dadwas. And we who hold dear suchmemories of our fathers in theseand so many other ways, we sayback to them, “I love you, too,Dad.”
In so many ways ...
