To obtain a li-cense, applicators must demon-strate the necessary qualifications,knowledge and training to applypesticides and fertilizers safely, ef-fectively and according to the law.Whether you are doing the workyourself or hiring a professional,follow these tips to make surelawn, garden and tree care serv-ices are executed correctly.1. Purchase only as much as youneed and store the unused productsafely.2. Do not apply chemicals if theweather conditions are not right.For example, high wind can causeproducts to drift off-site and causedamage to people or plants.3. Read "directions for use" and“precautionary statements” sec-tions on the label before use.4. Ask to see the professional ap-plicator’s license before they startworking as they must carry a validlicense ID card while working.5. Pay attention to warningsigns/flags that are posted onlawns near the sidewalk or streetand at entry points at recreationalproperty to alert people that atreatment was made to the area.6. Review written applicationrecords and/or invoices provided byapplicators to document theirwork, including products used andsites applied.
Homeowners reminded to follow directionswhen applying lawn pesticides/fertilizers
Consumers can call the BetterBusiness Bureau at 800.646.6222and ask for a customer satisfactionhistory about lawn care compa-nies. For information about appli-cator licenses, call SDDA at605.773.4432.To report an unlicensed personmaking a pesticide or fertilizer ap-plication, please file a complainton the SDDA website athttp://sdda.sd.gov/farming-ranching-agribusi-ness/how-do-i/Proper disposal of used pesticidecontainers is also important be-cause there is always residue leftover inside the containers. Thereare two facilities for gathering andrecycling of these containers in SD.They are operated by SDDA andare located in Pierre and Vermil-lion.
This is an award sponsored by the Wall Beautification Committee each year. The yard is chosenbased on a criteria of: (1) the type, variation, and color of vegetation, such as trees, shrubs, andflowers, (2) health and care of the lawn and yard, (3) house as it gives a positive attractiveness tothe yard, and (4) landscaping. This year’s recipients are Natalie and Eric Hansen. Their compactyard offers as much beauty as any of the larger yards in Wall. Open to view from the street, itcatches the attention of anyone going by. Those who have noticed have witnessed the changesfor the better on this corner over the years. It is a young yard with healthy trees and shrubs, anda variety of plants to insure color all season. Natalie and her son Reid are the main caretakers of the yard, with some assistance from Eric. Reid does his part with the lawn while Natalie maintainsthe plantings. This is a family with a concern for the environment, and they are doing their part totake care of it in our urban area. They will be presented with an award at the Eastern PenningtonCounty District’s Annual Banquet to be held in November. This year the runners up were Wayneand Melanie Shull. It was close! Congratulations to the Hansen Family!! ~

Gas short-age plagued the 1970’s. From the1980’s to the present, we have hadto deal with severe downturns inthe economy and unemploymentthroughout our nation, as well asskyrocketing fuel prices. But evenwith so many obstacles, our com-munity can work together to helpa small, family business that hassought to serve both the touristsand the local residents, while alsogiving a boost to products maderight here in South Dakota. As avery wise Ben Franklin so aptlyput it in 1776, “We must all hangtogether, or assuredly, we shall allhang separately.”It is our understanding that theMocha Moose will need to circulatea petition to bring a referendum onthis matter to Wall’s voters.We hope the citizens of this com-munity will have the vision to signthis petition, and will then vote toissue their license. Honestly, wesee only pros and no cons - Christwould not have turned water intowine when they ran out at thewedding at Cana if no one was al-lowed to drink it./s/ Gayle and Steve EisenbraunWall, S.D.

My paycheckwas $50/month.” When askedwhat she did, “I pounded the type-writer just like any other secre-tary, but I had to do shorthandfirst.”She has never used a computerbut recalls the first time she usedan electric typewriter - it scaredher to death because it went so fastand jumped right out at her.Dorothy exclaims, “I walked towork, back and forth from lunchand home again, ten blocks oneway! Do you think anyone doesthat today?”Dorothy’s family was a veryclose-knit unit. When a trip was tobe taken, they all went, Mom, Dad,and all three kids. Sometimes theywere even gone for months at atime.She has traveled to every statewith the exception of Hawaii sinceshe has never flown in her lifetime. Looking off into the distance,Dorothy said, “I wish I could travelagain. You see a lot of things whenyou travel by bus.”She recalls many occasionswhere her dad would come homeone day and say, “I bought ahouse!” or “I bought a car!”She speaks of her family veryfondly. Dorothy’s dad and brotherdecided to build the very firsthousetop Christmas decoration inWatertown, which had reindeerand as Dorothy says it, “SanteeClaus”. She said the people woulddrive by car after car after car. Also in history, Dorothy recallsthe end of World War I. They wereliving in Moosejaw, Saskatchewanand bells and whistles started toblare out on the streets signifyingthe war was over! People werechanting, “The war is over! Thewar is over!”With only a few remaining rela-tives, she and Stanley Beal, heryounger cousin, at the age of 92,who lives in Minnesota still corre-spond by mail.Nearing the end of this inter-view in her room at Jenkins LivingCenter, Dorothy looked up andsaid, “Every morning, I wake upand think ‘I’m still here!’Jeralean Talley, age 114, of Inkster, Mich., is currently the old-est living American -- and third-oldest person in the world, accord-ing to the Gerontology ResearchGroup, which keeps a list of theworld's oldest people.The Century Club is a creationof the South Dakota Health Care Association and has recognizedover 1,000 South Dakotans sinceits beginning in 1997.Century Club sponsors createdthe Club to recognize both the con-tributions and the years of thesespecial individuals.
