The Haakon/Jackson 4-HLeader’s Council annually spon-sors up to two high school stu-dents to join other South Dakotayoung adults in the national Citi-zenship Washington Focus trip.This year, Katie Haigh and SamStangle passed the application, in-terview and selection process forthe trip to Washington, D.C., June15-23. Avery Johnson, Hayes, at-tended under the sponsorship of the Stanley/ Hughes 4-H Leader-ship Association. Haigh, daughterof Ron and Nancy Haigh, Philip,Stangle, son of Jim and LindaStangle, Milesville, and Johnson,son of Jon and Connie Johnson, allattend Philip High School. Theother Stanley/Hughes selectionwas Cade Larson, son of Davidand Kim Larson, Fort Pierre.“We were constantly doing stuff,about every minute of every day.we had some free time, about anhour a day, but that kept gettingcut short,” said Haigh, relatinghow many things there were to do.The trip began with a marathonride, with the two South Dakotabus loads of students joining inSioux Falls and proceding toWashington to join with other na-tionwide 4-H members on thesame trip. “All the kids on the bus joked around and had a goodtime,” said Johnson. “The ride gota little long, having to sleep on thebus, but we had fun, too.”The traveling itself also stoodout in Haigh’s mind. AroundChicago they began stopping fortoll booths. “We got to ride theMetro, which is like the D.C. ver-sion of the subway. It was reallycool, something I’ve never done be-fore,” said Haigh.“The thing that really stood out,I thought, was all the youth in-volvement, several differentstates, was neat,” said Johnson.“Different parts of the country,different accents and ways of doing things, but we are all inter-ested in 4-H and we are the samein some respects.”That diversity of the 4-H mem-bers also extended throughout theentire trip for Stangle. “In SouthDakota you are a little bit shel-tered. In D.C. you get to see cul-tures you would never see if youstayed in South Dakota,” saidStangle. The group took a roadtrip to Boston for a cultural her-itage night, where they saw acomedy production about nunsfrom all around the world tryingto raise money for a convent. “Re-ally funny, people of all raceslaughing and having fun,” saidStangle. He said that throughoutthe trip he saw all different kindsof people, yet he saw no discrimi-nation. “You walk up to them andtalked like anyone else. It was re-ally cool.”“I thought going to all the differ-ent monuments and memorialswas really neat,” said Johnson.“But, I especially thought theCapitol building was the mostmemorable. It is our nation’sCapitol building, also the architec-ture with the high domed ceilingand many statues –it was a neatbuilding.”Haigh said you could see theWashington Monument fromwherever you were.For Stangle, the most interest-ing aspect was meeting SouthDakota Representative KristiNoem and Senator John Thune.Senator Tim Johnson was in ameeting, though they did tour hisoffices. “It was interesting gettingtheir thoughts on the current is-sues facing America,” said Stan-gle. For Stangle, the most fun partwas seeing the Smithsonian Insti-tute’s museums of American his-tory, natural history and air andspace. He took a photo of the orig-inal Kermit the Frog puppet. “I re-ally liked the Muppets. It wasreally cool to see Kermit the Frogin person,” said Stangle.Haigh noticed the differences

from home. The humidity was farhigher –the accents and saying“y’all” a lot –calling pop a coke – and trees everywhere. The num-ber of trees was a new experiencefor Haigh. “We got into Wisconsinand there were trees, Pennsylva-nia and nothing but trees, On theinterstate (in South Dakota) youcan see for 10 miles, there, noth-ing but trees,” said Haigh.“Going to Washington D.C. maynot be a once in a life opportunity,but for me it might have been, soI jumped on the opportunity,” saidJohnson. “It’s a great opportunity.If 4-Hers are offered the chance,they should go for it.”Stangle also thought it was agreat trip, and it was easy toapply. “You have a ton of fun,”said Stangle. He would like to goback, but with even more time forthe trip. “It all flew by so fast.”Haigh agreed that 4-H membersshould go on the trip. “You’ll enjoyyourself,” she said.

The United States House of Rep-resentatives passed H.R.2609, theEnergy and Water Appropriationsbill for fiscal year 2014, by a vote of 227-198. Included in the final pas-sage were two amendments previ-ously offered by RepresentativeKristi Noem and passed by theHouse.“This bill includes policy provi-sions that will benefit families andcommunities across our state,” saidNoem. “From furthering develop-ment of rural water projects likeLewis and Clark to ensuring theCorps of Engineers doesn’t over-reach its authority, this bill is agood example of how we can re-sponsibly use taxpayer dollars toprovide essential services to ourcommunities. I’m hopeful the Sen-ate will soon take up its appropria-tions bill so we can move toconference and send this legisla-tion to the president for his signa-ture.”Noem’s first amendment di-rected $25 million in additionalfunding for rural water projects,like the Lewis and Clark ruralwater system. This amendment didnot increase spending in the legis-lation because it redirects moneyfrom other portions of the bill to bespent on these water projects.Noem’s second amendment pro-hibits the U.S. Army Corps of En-gineers from charging constituentsin South Dakota, North Dakotaand Montana a fee for surpluswater from the Missouri River. Theamendment specifically prohibitsthe Corps of Engineers from usingany of the funds in the bill to issuerules or regulations related tocharging a fee for surplus water.

How are you at feeble excuses? You know, the kinds of things youcome up with to justify what youwant to do. Take the cartoon I sawthe other day where the man isreaching into the freezer at thegrocery store and says, “We’d bet-ter buy some ice cream to keep thebutter cool on the way home.” Hiswife looks on with a skeptical ex-pression meaning she thinks thebutter would arrive home just finewithout the added coolant of theice cream, but she doesn’t sayanything. Chances are she’sthinking she might want to buysomething they don’t really needas well and may have to come upwith a similar bit of misdirection.Well, there’s nothing wrongwith buying ice cream, but icecream has been known to addpoundage to a person and some of us don’t need that. You mighthave to come up with a good rea-son to buy it when maybe you re-ally shouldn’t. There are othercases where similar circum-stances may apply.For example, some folks claimthey are going to the city to takeadvantage of the lower prices of-fered at discount stores and such.This has some credence becauseyou can save substantially in cer-tain cases. You have to remember,though, that the gas to get youthere and back could well costfifty bucks. So, let’s say laundrydetergent sells for ten dollars abottle locally and only six in thecity. That saves you four dollars,but you’d have to buy over twelvebottles of it to save the cost of yourtraveling expenses. Either that ormake cost-saving purchases onlots of other items.What I suspect is that peoplemight want to go to the city to eatout, catch a movie, or find someother interesting forms of enter-tainment. That’s okay, but sayingyou’re going there to save moneyon things you need might not bethe whole truth, so to speak. If you have to go to keep a doctor’sappointment or consult your taxman, that’s different. Some serv-ices are not available locally, andyou have to drive a ways to findthem. In that case, it does makesome sense to shop while you’rethere and save back a little of your gas expense. A few times,though, I’ve bought something inthe city thinking I was savingmoney only to find it offered morecheaply close to home. This is ir-ritating. As a result, I’ve had toreconsider my original idea thatthings can always be purchasedmore cheaply in big stores thanlittle ones. It isn’t necessarily so.Impulse buying of weird stuff isalso a problem when you visit bigstores.Then we come to cowboys. Theyhave a million and one reasonswhy they should get on theirhorses and ride instead of, say,painting the barn or fixing the ac-cursed tractor. They may need tocheck the cattle in general, checkthe fences, see if the salt supply isrunning low, and, of course, in-spect the dams in case some crit-ter has gotten itself stuck in themud. What is difficult in terms of trying to refute any such excusesis that the Bible recommends, “Besure you know the condition of your flocks; give careful attentionto your herds.” There are times, of course, that nothing needs check-ing very badly once the calvingseason is over, the fences havebeen checked and rechecked, andthe dams are full enough thatmud isn’t a problem. This doesn’tkeep your normal cowboy fromdragging out these “needs” to goriding, but they should be takenfor what they are instead of byhow they’re explained. Ditto forcowgirls.The same thing might apply tofour-wheelers which are just akind of substitute for horse-backriding but also fun. I personallyhave dreamt up any number of compelling reasons to rev up ourlittle four-wheeler and tear off across the prairie. Unfortunately,I married a schoolteacher who hasa low-gullibility factor and tendsto see right through me. Thatdoesn’t keep me from tryingthough.Just today I told her that Ineeded to go to the steakhousesince I hadn’t been there in quitea while and they might think Ididn’t love them anymore. Shereplied, “And because you’re tiredof cooking.” “That too,” I agreed,and headed out.At the moment, I need to comeup with some sort of lame excusefor taking a nap. I’ve been busyand productive today and havemanaged to tire myself out. Wait.Being tired is a legitimate reasonfor resting. I don’t have to makeup an excuse. I can just go take anap. That, therefore, is where I’mheaded very shortly. Catch youlater.

Older folks may recall theaxiom, “If the only game in townis poker, then you learn to playpoker.” That applies to anythinganywhere.I fondly remember my brotherand me going with my father tothe pool hall in Dad’s formerhometown. The community wastiny and the pool hall was themain meeting place. It had publicrestrooms, served simple lunches,had a pay phone in back and wasopen when most other placesweren’t. The only game in townwas the pool hall, so everybodystopped in, whether it served alco-hol or not.Now, the town I call home hasits own ‘only’ games in town, andit is my home because of that. Iam not much of a drinker, a so-cialite, a pool player or late nightconversationalist. Yet, I am in thelocal alcohol establishments fairlyfrequently. The chamber of com-merce meets there. Functions thatcould be labeled as ‘family’ areoften held there –meals, karaoke,wedding receptions, crawdadfeeds, even talented minors pro-viding the musical entertainment.The town’s other entertain-ments can be loosely put under anumbrella heading of fundraisers.These range from church bingo,Relay For Life cancer walks, firedepartment dances, walking tacofeeds, sports team car washes,pancake breakfasts, free-will sup-pers at the local kiddie park, andthe list almost endlessly goes on.If either volunteering to workthese fundraisers, or being a cus-tomer paying in to raise thesefunds, is the only game in town,then deal me in.Officially, the place to get newsis the local newspaper. Unoffi-cially, and for “other” news, you goto one of the coffee shops. Some of these social gatherings are sort of traditional, and some happenspontaneously. Many alternativenews items have been passed onthere, and many of the world’sproblems have been solved there.Rarely, if ever, does the newspa-per and a coffee shop cover thesame details. I may take coffeeshop news and solutions withmore than a grain of salt, but goahead and pour me a cup of coffee.I love tennis, chess, frisbee golf,and picking chokecherries for jelly, but these aren’t the gamesaround here. I have willinglylearned at least the jargon of golf,basketball, branding and demoli-tion derbies. If I couldn’t survivewithout art galleries, cappuccino,traffic, the wrong side of town,and a police force in the hundreds,then I would move away fromhere. Community theater, ratherthan Broadway, is the game intown. A handshake, rather than awitnessed document in triplicate,is the game here. First name,rather than job title, is the way togreet people. Crawdads are mychoice over lobster, large-mouthbass over ocean salmon, beef overchicken, best jeans over black tie.The only game in town may bethe only way of doing things in thearea. That defines the area andthe people. It is not disrespectfulthat other people’s way of life sim-ply would not fit here. They havetheir games in their home areas.My home has its own, and we allante up.

The days of summer are slowlyfading. While there is still time be-fore heading back to school, manycollege students and their familieshave been keeping a watchful eyefor news coming out of Washingtonabout what student loan interestrates will look like for the comingschool year. On July 1, 2013, Fed-eral Subsidized Stafford Loans re-turned from the temporary rate of 3.4 percent to 6.8 percent.The return to higher rates waspart of legislation Congress passedin 2007, which provided a tempo-rary, phased-in reduction of inter-est rates from 6.8 percent to 3.4percent for Federal SubsidizedStafford Loans. This reduced inter-est rate was set to return to itsfixed rate of 6.8 percent after Julyof 2012. However, last year, Con-gress enacted a one-year extensionof the 3.4 percent rate. That exten-sion expired on June 30, 2013. Therecent rate change to 6.8 percentset many students and parents onedge about the cost of financing ed-ucation.Unfortunately, while studentswere left wondering how theywould shoulder the burden of higher interest rates, public dis-agreement between the presidentand Senate Democrats left legisla-tion to provide relief to students ata standstill in the Senate. Thank-fully, the Senate was able to reacha bipartisan agreement that willprovide a sustainable, market-based solution that ensures accessand affordability for all students,including students with subsidizedand unsubsidized loans. PreviousDemocrat proposals ignored theproblem of high interest rates forother types of federal educationloans and would have only ad-dressed interest rates for 40 per-cent of student loan borrowers.This bipartisan proposal passed bythe Senate reduces interest ratesfor all students.The Senate bill would allow ratesto float with the U.S. Treasury 10-year borrowing rates, plus an add-on for costs associated withdefaults, collections, deferments,forgiveness and delinquency. Thisallows students to benefit from thecurrent low interest rate environ-ment while better protecting tax-payers from unnecessarily subsi-dizing lower rates, saving both stu-dents and taxpayers billions of dol-lars. The resulting interest ratesfor loans taken out this year, afterJuly 1, 2013, would be 3.86 percentfor subsidized and unsubsidizedloans for undergraduate students,5.41 percent on unsubsidized loansfor graduate students, and 6.41percent on PLUS loans for parentsand graduate students. These rateswould apply retroactively to newlyissued loans taken out after July 1,2013.The costs of attending college cancreate challenging and stressfulsituations for some families, butproviding certainty about interestrates can help ease the burden. Iam pleased that the Senate wasable to reach a bipartisan, perma-nent market-based solution thatlowers interest rates for all stu-dents.
Keeping student loan interest rates low

I recently had the opportunity toplay in the Congressional Women’sSoftball Game, where female law-makers team up and play femalemembers of the media in a softballgame for charity.All proceeds of the ticket saleswent to benefit the Young SurvivalCoalition (YSC), a global organiza-tion dedicated to critical issuesunique to young women who are di-agnosed with breast cancer. In par-ticular, the YSC offers resources,connections and outreach to youngwomen with breast cancer. Accord-ing to the American Cancer Soci-ety, about 12 percent of women inthe United States will develop in-vasive breast cancer during theirlifetime.Roughly $125,000 was raised forthe Young Survival Coalition.
