The Faith City Council short-ened their July 2nd meeting bypulling several items from theagenda.Following the approval of min-utes, claims and agenda, the firstitem discussed was the repair of the water tower. Dupper said hehad talked to Maguire Iron aboutthe project. This will be a twoweek process. The city crew willdrain the tower and divert it tothe blue tank. Water pressure isexpected to fluctuate these twoweeks, and it may be slightly dis-colored but that’s nothing to beworried about. Maguire Iron willsandblast the tower, and give ittwo coats of epoxy, which willhave to dry in between. Councildiscussed doing this later but de-cided it was best to go ahead andget it done as soon as possible,and accepted Maguire’s bid. Dup-per will talk to Maguire and seewhen they can come.Council retired into executivesession at 7:10 for about 20 min-utes to discuss personnel.The hearing for the issuance of an alcoholic beverage license forthe Faith Stock Show was held at7:30.

 As they had to notify the Countythe day following their decision itis too late to do it now. Karen In-ghram said the dust really hangson the road, especially with thetrucks. James Inghram wonderedhow much it would cost to chipseal a test area. He said somegravel really packs hard and itwould sure help cut down on thedust problem. He visited withLane Cammack about gravel attheir pit.Crushed gravel runsaround $3 a ton. Inghram sug-gested maybe running a test stripfrom the speed limit sign as far ashis property line, about 1/4 of amile, or somewhere in that vicin-ity. Council approved getting aquote from Cammacks for graveland hauling for a 1/8 mile testarea, from the speed limit signgoing north.Council tabled a decision on re-imbursing lifeguards for their cer-tification fees until the July 16thmeeting.Greg Fisher came before Coun-cil in regard to his concern of thedrainage on his property by MattHelms. When we have a hard rainthe water seems to backup in theculverts from Pratts and Helms toSmiths. He has looked over theculverts at the school, Dueters,and along that street. Some of thestretch is fine, but one thing henoticed is that the one at Duetersis at a slight angle and thoughtmaybe that slowed down some of the flow. The culverts at Smithsseems to be partially collapsed.He would like the City to checkand see where the problem lies.Mayor Haines suggested he gettogether with Smiths and see if they can work something out be-tween them. Fisher wonderedwhat the city’s obligation is tomake sure that the water drainsproperly. Debbie said that, as faras she knew, the city is not obli-gated for anything as it is on pri-vate property. Council askedGreg to come to the next meetingwhen Attorney Bogue is presentso they can get the proper legalinformation.Nuisance properties was thenext topic on their agenda. Coun-cil approved sending out letters tothree property owners requestingthey clean up their property orthe city will take necessary ac-tion.Debbie wanted it known thatthey will be having karaoke at thebar on the 20th for AppreciationDay.Council discussed havingsomeone at the entrances at Dur-kee Lake to collect donations forthe fireworks. Some memberswouldn’t be available. No definitedecision.Mayor Haines passed out com-mittee lists to members. He ap-pointed three members to eachcommittee and wants them to ap-point a chairman and meet eachmonth before the second meetingand present any information theygather so all members knowwhat’s happening. He wants thecommittees to meet with depart-ment heads and figure out theirneeds for the next year. He wouldalso like them to work on a five-year plan for needs. They will beworking on the budget soon sowould like to know what theirneeds are. These meetings areopen to the public.Reed Henschel is working onrepairs at the ice house. Door arebeing replaced and a deck of pon-derosa pine is being added. Rileyasked if there was any funds forpaint, and if it could be done be-fore Stock Show. Debbie said thegrant defines what they can do.Painting probably won’t be donebefore Stock Show. Annelle Af-dahl also said the Exhibit Boardwanted to know about painting,and what there was for funds. Atthis time, Riley stated that weneed to do a better job of promot-ing Faith. She was disappointedthat the Stock Show wasn’t welladvertised in a recent vacationguide.Mayor Haines commented thatCity property is being abused. Ve-hicles, etc. are being parked andleft. Council held further discus-sion on the nuisance properties intown. Members thought a noticeshould be placed in the newspa-paper about abandoned vehicles,etc., then a letter be sent to theowners. Currently property own-ers are allowed to have one vehi-cle per license parked on thestreet. Members were concernedabout some vehicles being parkedin yards for a lengthy time if theyare not operational. These are notonly an eye-sore but they are ahealth issue. If the area can’t bemowed, it’s an easy place to at-tract snakes and skunks. Mem-bers will be going around townand making lists to present at thenext council meeting.

Lifeguards aren’t the only oneswho’ll be saving lives this sum-mer. People like you and yourneighbor will be, too…by donat-ing blood. According to Lori Liebman,United Blood Services’ Donor Re-cruitment Director, participationdrops off slightly at summerblood drives. At the same time,donations throughout the regiondrop in the summer because highschools and colleges, which areenthusiastic blood drive sponsors,are not in session. In this area, awhopping 10% percent of thelocal blood supply comes fromhigh school and college students.When those students are on sum-mer vacation, it’s up to the com-munity to make up the difference.“It’s no secret,” Liebman says.“People simply are much busierthan they are at other times of the year. Although donors mighthave other things to do, patientscontinue to need blood. Nearly185 blood donations are requiredeach week to meet the needs of hospital patients.” Eligible blooddonors are encouraged to giveblood regularly to keep hospitalshelves stocked with lifesavingblood.Liebman urges residents toadopt United Blood Services’ slo-gan: “Find the Hero in You.Make time to save lives, or re-cruit others in your place if youare unable to give. We encouragedonors to donate at least threetimes a year- each donation cansave up to two people’s lives!” All donors will receive a freecholesterol test with every blooddonation. Anyone interested indonating at the Catholic Daugh-ters blood drive on Thursday,July 11th, can call Amy Ulrich.The drive will be held from 1:00to 5:30 at St. Joseph’s CatholicChurch fellowship hall. You mustbring your photo ID.

Employer mandate delay sig-nals larger problems for Oba-maCare
Recently, the Obama adminis-tration announced its plans todelay implementation of one of the key components of the presi-dent’s signature health care legis-lation, the employer mandate.This provision, which mandatesfinancial penalties to businesseswith more than 50 employeesthat fail to provide government-approved health insurance to itsemployees, will be delayed from2014 until 2015.For more than three years,President Obama has been assur-ing the American people that pro-visions in ObamaCare such as theemployer mandate will help lowerpremium costs and allow Ameri-cans to keep the insurance theypreferred. Yet, businesses acrossSouth Dakota and the rest of thecountry have lamented that thelegislation is stifling hiring deci-sions and taking away financialresources that would normally beinvested in their business. Ac-cording to a Wells Fargo/GallupSmall Business Index survey,nearly 4 in 10 small businessowners are holding back hiringbecause of costs associated withimplementing ObamaCare.Not only does the health carelaw mandate coverage for em-ployees, but the law also includesa provision that mandates em-ployers include certain govern-ment-determined “essential bene-fits” for any employer-sponsoredhealth plan, leaving almost noflexibility for an employer to de-termine what is best for his or heremployees. Many of these re-quired benefits increase the costof plans for employers and em-ployees alike. According to a recent Galluppoll from June of 2013, 52 percentof respondents said they disap-prove of ObamaCare, up from 48percent last fall. The same poll re-vealed that for every one personwho believes they will be betteroff under ObamaCare, two believethey will be worse off. Oppositionto the president’s health law isgrowing, and will continue togrow, as Americans realize thatthe law is built upon brokenpromises that will result inhigher health care costs and moretaxes.While I am pleased that busi-nesses will be shielded for an-other year from the onerous andcostly requirements associatedwith employer mandate, thedelay provides further evidencethat ObamaCare is not the solu-tion to our health care problemsand that this massive expansionof government is a step in thewrong direction. Rather than uni-laterally breaking a law that thepresident and his allies in Con-gress proposed, the administra-tion should have worked withCongress to devise a solution.It’s time to repeal this brokenlegislation and replace it withreal health care reforms that willgive Americans access to thehealth care they need, from thedoctor they choose, at a lowercost.Drought concerns eased lastmonth with widespread rainfalland near average temperaturesin South Dakota. At this point,the climate outlook for July re-mains uncertain."Copious amounts of rain fellin the northeastern counties inJune," said Laura Edwards,SDSU Extension Climate FieldSpecialist. "Some locations re-ported 3 to 5 inches above aver-age rainfall for the month. That isnearly double average for thoseareas between Marshall andDeuel counties."Edwards added that the south-western corner of South Dakotaremains in moderate to severedrought going in to the month of July."Unfortunately, the southernBlack Hills and areas betweenFall River and Todd counties con-tinued to be much drier than av-erage in June," said Edwards.Climatologically, the summeris traditionally a dry season forthose counties. This, Edwards ex-plains means that furtherdrought recovery will be unlikelyin the coming months."As temperatures increase, sodoes water demand by plants, an-imals and people," she said.Edwards said according to thelatest monthly and seasonaldrought outlooks from the Cli-mate Prediction Center a droughtis expected to persist in this areafor July and through September.June's temperatures have helpedcrop producers across the state,said Dennis Todey, SDSU StateClimatologist."Temperatures in June wereslightly below average for themonth, but nothing like what thestate experienced earlier thisyear," Todey said. "Statewide,June temperature was just a de-gree or two below the long-termaverage. This created a nice envi-ronment for crop growth andrangeland recovery over the lastfew weeks."By the end of June, corn fieldsappeared to be in good shape, andsoybean fields were improving.
Field recover
 A path of severe storms passedthrough eastern South Dakota onJune 21. Most reports indicatethat damaged fields were able tobe replanted after hail, highwinds and tornadoes affected theUS-212 corridor that afternoon.Looking ahead to the month of July, Todey said computer cli-mate models are scattered intheir predictions for the northernPlains."There are no clear signs of wetter or drier than average con-ditions for the month," hesaid. "Extended periods of exces-sive heat don't seem to be forth-coming."In the early part of the month,models predict that South Dakotawill be in the path of cooler anddrier air from Canada, as highpressure sits in the western U.S."This isn't to say we are en-tirely cut off from moisture,"Todey said. "We will likely getsmall amounts of rainfall hereand there from more sporadicthunderstorms."Edwards and Todey agree thatthe early part of July will bepleasant. The sunny skies andmoderately warm temperatureswill be a boon to gardens and rowcrops in the region, and will alsoprevent severe heat issues forlivestock.To learn more, visit iGrow.org.
