The South DakotaFallen Heroes Banners were cre-ated to memorialize the lives of these South Dakota Heroes. Thepublic is invited to visit, and givea moment of pause to recognizethese 35 names. With each namecomes a face, a history, a oncelived life to be treasured for alltime.Deadwood History’s Days of ’76Museum, Adams Museum andHistoric Adams House are alsoparticipating in the Blue StarMuseum program.

Guided toursof the Adams House are offeredevery half hour, with the last tourof the day at 4:00 p.m.South Dakota Lottery officialsare urging players to not be takenin by a scam that promises themwinnings from a second chanceMega Millions drawing.The Lottery has been notifiedby more than a dozen players, alllotto or scratch ticket winners,who have received phone callsfrom an individual claiming to bewith the South Dakota Lotterywho advised them that theirprizes made them eligible for asecond chance Mega Millionsdrawing. The caller then went onto tell the player that they hadwon a $5 million second prize inthe drawing and that representa-tives from the South Dakota Lot-tery would be delivering thatprize in person. Lottery DirectorNorm Lingle cautions the publicnot to be fooled if they are con-tacted."The Lottery never enterssomeone into a drawing, promo-tion for an added bonus or prize,or for any other reason withoutthat person's knowledge," Linglesaid. "If you are contacted by thescammer, either by phone or someother method such as e-mail, weurge you to contact local law en-forcement and the Consumer Pro-tection unit of the South Dakota Attorney General’s office at 1-800-300-1986."Lingle says it's also a good ideato check with his agency to see if such calls or e-mails are legiti-mate before taking any action re-quested by the scammer. TheLottery maintains three valida-tion centers across the state inPierre (605-773-5770), Rapid City(605-394-5106) and Sioux Falls(605-367-5840).In at least one reported case,the scammer requested the victimpurchase a Green Dot Card to re-ceive their winnings. Lingle alsoadvises those contacted to notprovide any personal information,including credit card and bank ac-count numbers, if requested bythe caller.Lottery prizes of $101 or moremust be claimed at a Lottery of-fice using an official prize claimform.

The Faith City Council hadtwo special guests at their July16th meeting. Paul Thares,SDSU Community DevelopmentField Specialist and Nick Jack-son, SD Rural Water Association.Thares explained that theirnew website iGrow is their latestway of communicating informa-tion to the public, and told of theprograms they have to offer to or-ganizations, governments, as wellas individuals. He can help withgrant writing and developingbusiness plans. The Extensionhas many resources. He toldCouncil he is willing to come hereand share information on anyprogram that might be of use tothem.Jackson brought his welltrailer and checked out a coupleareas that were thought to haveleaks, one by the community cen-ter and one further north of town.There was no leak found at thecommunity center, but there wasone at the other site, averagingabout 720 gallons a day. He vis-ited with the landowner about thesituation.Discussion was held on an ear-lier motion regarding the fee forswimming lessons. A new motionwas made and approved to havethe fee given to Tori Afdahl,Water Safety Instructor, for giv-ing the lessons, rather than pay-ing her the hourly wage,retroactive to the beginning of thelessons.Donn Dupper explained thathe would like to see the city in-stall liners in their sewer lines assome of them are crumbling. Sev-eral communities are having thisproblem and are going with lin-ers. Debbie thought there mightbe grants available to help withthe cost. Council told her to con-tact the lady about coming andhelping with the grant applica-tion. Atty. Bogue said he didn’t haveall the information but has verifi-cation that the oil lease of NakotaEnergy was purchased by anothercompany. He feels comfortablewith extending the lease for anadditional two years with the newcompany. They would pay a lumpsum up front and then an addi-tional $2 per acre. Council ap-proved the lease transfer with thenew company for two more years,which would extend it into 2016. Atty. Bogue gave memberscopies of the job descriptions toreview and make any additions,corrections to. He made somechanges in some departments,most of the changes were for the janitor as the new building wasn’there the last time this was done.Council tabled this until the sec-ond meeting in August.The next item on the agendawas the contract with GoldenWest for fiber provision andmaintenance support. Bogue was-n’t comfortable with the contractas he felt is was too open-ended,there was no specific fee statedand he doesn’t like those types of contracts. With costs changingconstantly he could understandthat portion and told Council if they are comfortable with it theycould accept it, which they did.Council discussed Ordinance #306 regarding future develop-ment. Bogue thought they wereworrying about something thatisn’t going to happen (man campsfrom the oil development).Berndt expressed her feelingsthat the city doesn’t need this andmade the motion to not proceedwith the ordinance. Inghrammade a second to the motion andCouncil was in agreement.Council approved Atty. Boguesending letters to two homeown-ers with nuisance properties.Council retired into executivesession at 8:15 to 8:55 for possiblelitigation.The City received a notice re-garding information for insuranceof Durkee Lake. The lake isowned by GFP, but the City ownsthe land around it. The insurancecompany wants a response fromthem regarding several itemsthat need attention, as trees, thespillway, fence, etc.Resolution #07-16-13-01 forthe transfer of funds was ap-proved.

Debbie reported that paint isin the grant for the ice house.Riley wondered if they shouldn’tpower wash it before it is painted.Reed is still working on the proj-ect and don’t know when thatwork will be done.Council approved Dr. ThomasJacobsen as the medical directorfor the ambulance, with VernaSchad as the assistant.Barb Berndt presented her re-port on the police departmentand ambulance committee meet-ing. The PD received the grantfor the bulletproof vests and al-ready have them. Chief Frank-furth hasn’t heard anything onthe grant for the digital speedsign. The Freshman Impact pro-gram will be held at the Commu-nity Center rather than theschool on Sept. 25th. There willbe one HP, and possibly one offi-cer from the County for StockShow, along with a Tribal officer.Hoss also wanted to close off theblock the tent is on during StockShow. It was noted that theymoved the tent down so parkingwould be available for Lonny’sSteak House. The PD will beneeding a new car in the nextyear and should budget one in.The ambulance received theirhardship status until October.They will be able to have oneEMT, rather than two, and adriver. They are planning EMTclasses for this fall so hope to getsome new EMTs. The door at theambulance hall needs to be re-paired or replaced. Ighram com-mented that the bank isproviding pop for the kids for theFreshman Impact program.Members felt it unfortunate thatonly freshman get to attend, allhigh school students could learnfrom it.Dianne Hellekson only hadone item to report for the recre-ation committee. Two light polesare broken off at Durkee Lake bythe picnic tables at the dock.Dupper said he has two poles toput up.Karen Inghram gave her utili-ties report. The committee dis-cussed LED lights for the streetlights as they are more economi-cal to run. They may be a littlemore costly to begin with but inthe long run they would savemoney. They have had no luckfinding a replacement buckettruck at their $60,000 budget.They may have to increase theiramount to $70-80,000. Dupperdid find one for $69,000 that isready to go. The repair work onthe water tower should startwithin the next week. It was alsosuggested they change the fee fornew hookups as it has been sev-eral years since they have up-dated.Peggy Riley said the streetscommittee discussed paving N.Main to the county line, curb andgutter in the housing area west of Hwy 73, chip sealing this yearand also crack sealing. Bids for astreet sweeper will be opened on August 6th. The transmission inthe blade needs to be repaired. Itwas suggested they get a quotefor this. Bob Linn is working onthe drainage at the fairgrounds.The valley at Fishers is markedwhere it will be. It was noted thatLinn is not interested in doingcurb and gutter. She said the air-port committee also met. A grantto purchase land and fence it wasdiscusssed. The liquor committeeitems included replacing thecooler under the bar and upgrad-ing the security cameras. Theyare working the bugs out of thenew computer. As of now, theyonly have two bartenders forStock Show. The possibility of closing off the package liquordoor during Stock Show, andusing wrist bands as a means of recognizing carded patrons wastheir thought. They would alsolike to have the bar sign rehung. A dish was discussed for the barbut they decided not to go with itas it would bave to be commercialrate and that is very expensive.Two building permits were is-sued: Jake Schauer for awater/sewer connection and RickSmiths for siding and windows.The arrears list was reviewedand discussed.Their next meeting will beTuesday, August 6th.

So it was disconcertingwhen it was revealed that DoEwill be assisting with the imple-mentation and dissemination of information of ObamaCare.While the effects of the presi-dent’s health care law will be feltby parents, teachers, and theirfamilies, it is unclear how theDoE’s involvement in implemen-tation will further the depart-ment’s mission of educating ournation’s students. Further, theimplementation of ObamaCarewill require taxpayer dollarsand/or federal employees to shiftfocus from education related ef-forts to focus on execution of a lawthat should be spearheaded out of the Department of Health andHuman Services–not DoE. Thedepartment’s involvement inthese efforts raise questionsabout why the DoE is focusing onimplementing ObamaCare in-stead of fulfilling the priorities of the agency’s mission, and whatauthority the DoE and other fed-eral agencies have to disseminateinformation and assist with theimplementation of ObamaCare, alaw that 55 percent of respon-dents in a recent Gallup poll viewunfavorably.The DoE is not the first federalagency that has indicated it willaid in the implementation of Oba-maCare. Numerous federal agen-cies have announced intentions toassist with the implementation of the president’s signature healthcare law, despite the fact thatnone of these agencies have rele-vant jurisdiction.Due to my concerns with theDoE’s involvement in the imple-mentation of ObamaCare, I re-cently led a group of myRepublican Senate colleagues insending a letter to Secretary of Education Arne Duncan question-ing the DoE’s authority to involveitself in the implementation of ObamaCare. The letter questionsthe amount of federal spendingthe department will devote to im-plementation, the number of DoEemployees that will be used forthe effort, and what authority theDoE has to disseminate informa-tion and assist with implementa-tion of ObamaCare.Rather than commandeeringthe DoE and other federal agen-cies to assist in the implementa-tion of programs and provisionsthat are not, and may never beready–as evidenced by the admin-istration’s latest delay of the em-ployer mandate–the admin-istration should instead focus onsolutions that actually lower thecost of care and allow Americansto keep the insurance they like. Iwill continue to monitor the im-plementation of ObamaCare toensure the federal government isnot diverting important resourcesfrom their intended purposes toaid in the implementation of thisbroken legislation.
