Letter of Appreciation to BisonCemetery CommitteeDuring a recent visit to theBison Cemetery, I was greatly im-pressed by the neat appearance.In fact, I have been equally im-pressed during my previous an-nual visits over the years. All thevolunteers who work to keep thosehallowed grounds looking nice areto be commended for their out-standing efforts. While making myfinancial donation to a committeemember,Idiscovered that suchparticipation is extremely low.So,in addition to expressing mythanks to the cemetery committee,Iencourage those with familymembers interred there to con-sider making a donation to theBison Cemetery Association. I be-lieve it to be a sign of love, appre-ciation and respect for those whohave passed on before us.Thanks again, Cemetery Com-mittee members for all you do.Sincerely,Jerry KnutsonSeaford, VA
Letters to the Editor
Letter of Appreciation Anote of thanks is due to theBison High School Reunion Com-mittee for organizing and hostingthe recent reunion. We certainlyenjoyed the results of all theirhard work. Without them puttingforth much volunteer time andlabor,we would not have gotten tomeet and visit so many friends of years gone by. We hope to attendthe next reunion in five years (oras scheduled).Keep up that great communityspirit, and, thanks again for a jobwell done.Jerry and Leona KnutsonClass of '56 amd '61Seaford, VA
South Dakota Beef Cook-Off entries needed by August 9
If you have a recipe that demon-strates just how easy it is to cookwith beef, using any fresh beef cutand fresh ingredients withprepackaged food products, it’stime to enter the 2013 SouthDakota State Fair Beef Cook-Off.This year’s Cook-Off theme isSemi-Homemade Beef Recipes,and it’s a perfect fit for the busyhome cook who loves to serve deli-cious and nutritious beef. “Every-one is pressed for time today,” ex-plains event chairperson ShirleyThompson. “We want to inspirehome cooks to share their best beef recipe paired with time-savingproducts.” The SD State Fair Beef Cook-Off is an annual event thatinvites amateur cooks from acrossthe state to show their beef cook-ing skills and creativity in a funcompetition during the State Fair.“This year’s theme is a bit of a de-parture from past contests,” ex-plains Thompson, “but we reallywant to target that group of homecooks that can create a great beef dish with little fuss and in a shortamount of time.”Recipes should include a maxi-mum of 12 ingredients includingbeef, fruits or vegetables, grainand dairy products, and be pre-pared and cooked in 30 minutes orless. They may include pre-pack-aged food products such as anyfrozen vegetable or vegetable com-bination product, fresh produceconvenience product, fresh deliproduct, any shelf stable dinnermix, salad dressing, marinade orsalad dressing mix, prepared soupor soup mix, prepared sauce orsauce mix, packaged rice mix, bak-ing mix product, or seasoningblend product.Entries and recipes for the StateFair Beef Cook-Off are due August9. The contest itself takes place August 31 on the state fairgrounds in Huron during theSouth Dakota State Fair, whereindividuals selected to competewill prepare their beef recipe atthe Women’s Building, allowingparticipants to interact with statefair attendees.The contest is open to non-pro-fessional South Dakota residentsin either of three divisions: begin-ner (10-13 years), youth (14-17years) or adult (18 and older).First place winners in each divi-sion will take home a $500 cashprize. Runner-ups will receive$250 in cash.Hosted by the South DakotaCattle Women and funded by theSouth Dakota Beef Industry Coun-cil through the Beef Checkoff, theState Fair Beef Cook-Off is an ex-cellent way, says Thompson, to ed-ucate consumers about beef’s ver-satility,convenience and nutri-tional value.For more information and tosubmit a recipe online, go towww.sdcattlewomen.org, or youcan find a link at www.sdbeef.org. Any additional questions aboutthe contest can be directed toThompson at 605-360-6546.
