perience better, they usually saythat the interview process shouldbe simplified, shortened or auto-mated,” said Jennifer Bredahl,Regional Donor Recruitment Di-rector for United Blood Services.“We took these suggestions toheart and now are happy to pro-vide this new, shortened inter-view process for our dedicateddonors.”United Blood Services encour-ages donors to give the onlinehealth history questionnaire a tryfor their next donation. There aresome important guidelines tonote, especially the fact thatdonors must complete the ques-tionnaire the same day as theirdonation. Donors still have theoption to have one of our staff members ask the health historyquestions, like we currently do. All donors have to do is simply re-quest this option when they ar-rive to donate.Instructions can be found on-line at www.UnitedBloodSer-vices.org and by clicking the“Health History Questionnaire”link on the left. Answers cannotbe saved, so donors must com-plete the 10-15 minute interviewin one sitting. Donor data isstored only in the barcoded “FastTrack Donation Ticket” that adonor will print following the in-terview, so a login is not required.The online donor interview wasdeveloped by Calimex USA Corp.,a software developer based in SanFrancisco.People who are 16 or older,weigh at least 110 pounds and arein good health are eligible to do-nate blood. Additionalheight/weight requirements applyto donors 22 and younger, anddonors who are 16 must have asigned permission from a parentor guardian. You can try out this newprocess for Faith’s next blooddrive, on July 11th. The CatholicDaughters are sponsoring thisblood drive. You may call Amy Ul-rich to schedule an appointment.There won’t be one in Dupree thistime around.Recently, the South DakotaBroadband Initiative (SDBI)awarded technology grants forprojects exceeding $150,000 to 18Community Anchor Institutions(CAI) across South Dakota.

 A new law making it illegal foryoung drivers to use a cell phonewhile driving takes effect on Mon-day, July 1, South Dakota De-partment of Public Safety officialsremind citizens.The law, passed by the 2013Legislature, prohibits anyonewho holds a learner’s permit or arestricted minor’s permit fromusing any handheld communica-tion device while driving. Gener-ally, such permits are issued topersons between the ages of 14and 18.“Young people still gaining ex-perience with driving really needto avoid any distractions,’’ saidJenna Howell, director of Legaland Regulatory Services for Pub-lic Safety. “Driving is a full-timeresponsibility for all of us. That isespecially true for our youngerdrivers who are still trying to getcomfortable behind the wheel of avehicle. The law emphasizes theneed to pay attention to the road.’’ A learner or instruction permitallows the holder to drive be-tween the hours of 6 a.m. and 10p.m. if accompanied by a personwho has a valid driver license, isat least 18 years old and has atleast one year of driving experi-ence. That person must occupy aseat beside the young driver. A restricted minor’s permit al-lows the holder to drive between6 a.m. and 10 p.m. with permis-sion of a parent or guardian. Theholder of a restricted minor’s per-mit may drive between the hoursof 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. if the parentor guardian is in a seat next tothe driver.The Legislature directed thatthe new law be enforced as a sec-ondary offense, meaning a youngdriver would have to be stoppedfor another offense before a ticketcould be issued for driving whileusing a handheld communica-tions device.
Cell phone ban for young drivers effective on July 1
The Canadian company, Pow-ertech, Inc., plans to mine ura-nium in the Black Hills using thegroundwater of our region as atool (in situ leach mining). Therisk of permanent contaminationof our aquifers is significant. Re-habilitating groundwater wouldbe time-consuming, difficult andexpensive. All attempts to restorethe "mined" aquifers could fail.Powertech plans to converturanium ore into yellowcake,which would be available for ex-port, and could be used to gener-ate nuclear power or buildweapons. They risk contamina-tion of so much water for theprofit of so few, for a product thatmay do little to improve people'slives.The people of our region goback a hundred, or in many cases,hundreds of years. Our culture of water use has allowed us to sur-vive, and sometimes thrive, inthis semi-arid land. From the per-spective of the working man andwoman, life is possible here be-cause we view clean water as acommon good.If we want a vision for ourwater that is life-sustaining, wemust protect it. We need to per-suade our state's Water Manage-ment Board members to questionthe belief that Powertech can re-turn nothing but clean water toour aquifers.Kim KelleyDeadwood, SDSouth Dakota’s Highway Pa-trol will be out in force on theFourth of July with a high-visibil-ity campaign to emphasize safetravel during the holiday week-end.The day-long saturation patrolwill involve virtually all uni-formed troopers. It is part of theHighway Patrol’s summer-longsafe-travel campaign, “Obey theSign and Avoid the Fine.’’“The Fourth of July holiday pe-riod is one of the busiest of theyear for travel on state high-ways,’’ says Col. Craig Price, su-perintendent of the HighwayPatrol. “Putting as many trooperson the road as possible raisespublic awareness of the need tomake safe travel choices. Thatmeans wearing seatbelts, follow-ing speed limits and other rules of the road, avoiding distractionsand having a sober driver everytrip.’’“Obey the Sign and Avoid theFine’’ is a campaign to reducehighway crashes and increasesafety on South Dakota’s road-ways. Office of Highway Safetystatistics show that speeding, im-paired driving and other haz-ardous moving violations aremajor contributors to crashes, in- juries and deaths on state high-ways.While speed and alcohol arethe top targets for the enforce-ment campaign, troopers will beenforcing all other traffic laws.In addition to enforcement, thesummer safety campaign is usingsocial media for public educationand has partnered with the StateDepartment of Transportation forpermanent and portable messageboards with safe-driving mes-sages on the interstates and otherhigh-traffic areas in SouthDakota.

 As we gather this Fourth of July, at parades, picnics, barbe-ques, ballgames, concerts, andfireworks displays – all in honorof our country’s birth and contin-ued success; let us rememberwhat America really is and howour independence was achieved. After the Continental Con-gress accepted the Declaration of Independence, John Adams wrotea letter to his wife, Abigail, onJuly 3, 1776: “I am apt to believethat it will be celebrated by suc-ceeding generations as the greatanniversary Festival. It ought tobe commemorated as the Day of Deliverance, by solemn acts of de-votion to God Almighty. It oughtto be solemnized with pomp andparade, with shows, games,sports, guns, bells, bonfires andilluminations, from one end of this continent to the other, fromthis time forward forever……”Don’t let this be just anotherholiday. Reach out and thankyour veterans for the freedomthey have achieved for us. Let usnever stop educating our youthabout the price that has been paidfor their freedom! Live up to John Adam’s challenge to celebratefrom one end of this continent tothe other.On Thursday, as we celebrateour exceptional past, let us alsocelebrate America’s future. Let usalso keep the men and womenwho are serving on active duty inour thoughts and prayers; espe-cially South Dakota’s 152ndCombat Sustainment SupportBattalion that will deploy July 6to Afghanistan in support of Op-erations Enduring Freedom.
