After 14 yearswith some suc-cess, this seasonsuperstock dirttrack car racerDustin Arthurhas won threechampionships.Dustin, a for-mer Philip resi-dent now livingin Miller, said,“What made mea better driver isI started withsome really badcars and had toherd themaround thetrack. I had badstuff and I had tolearn the drivingand everythingelse. I had onlyme to blame andit makes me bet-ter.”Dustin haswon featureraces at MillerSpeedway andDakota StateFair Speedwayin Huron, andearned top South Dakota super-stock state points. He cleared1,032 points, with the secondplace driver getting around 990.This was done in a new car builtground up from an Arrow chas-sis. Of his many sponsors, threeare Philip based –Hansen FishHatchery, Midwest Co-op andRonald Mann, DDS.All dirt track superstock driv-ers have cars that fit exact spec-ifications, and they must weigha minimum 2,850 pounds atrace’s end. Heat races of six toeight cars go eight laps around acourse that is a half mile orthree-eighths mile. Heat racessimply decide the line up for thefeature race. Then, all cars go 15laps for the championship.Dustin has to decide theshocks, tires and other factorsfor his car depending on thetrack, weather and competitionfor each race. His crew usually ishis father, Greg Arthur, Philip,or his girlfriend, Kristen Roth,Miller. His mother likes watch-ing –it’s safer than him drivinga motorcycle.“We started taking him toraces at Black Hills Speedwaywhen he was little, and I thinkthat’s what go him started,” saidGreg. “He raced motorcycles fora while in Pierre. I always re-member him saying he was thesmallest kid with the biggestbike, but he could ride thewheels off of her.”Then, Dustin got into car rac-ing. Greg said that superstockwas a way to get in there for aslittle amount of investment, butit still goes fast. Greg remem-bers Dustin’s first car, “If hemade it to the end of the race,that was quite an accomplish-ment.”
Arthur’s winning dirt track racing season
A new car, and skills developed while herding worse cars around the track, have helped Dustin Arthur become a South Dakota dirt track car racingchampion this season.

Midland Merchants host Appreciation Day
The annual Midland Merchants’ Appreciation Day –also known as Free Day –Saturday, September 21, beganwith a 5k run/walk/ride fundraiser for the local 4-H club. The booster club served lunch at the fire hall. Thisyear’s parade theme was “Bands.” After the parade, games included a money scramble, blow-up castles, facepainting, water balloon catching and others. The Midland Commercial Club, whose members sponsor the day,served a roast beef supper at the fire hall. Door prizes were distributed in front of the Legion Hall. The day con-cluded with a dance which featuredthe band “Westbound.” Above is theA&A Tire and Repair parade float,with Thomas Doolittle dressed as acaveman, which won the Midland pa-rade’s merchants category.

I still race against himand he’s tougher than ever tobeat. Everybody in the stateknows him.”“I’ve learned a lot over thepast few years,” continuedDustin. “I could drive, but nowthat I have a good car under meit makes a big difference.”Dustin would tell young peo-

What state are you in?” I in-quired. My sister, Pat, and herhusband, Gary, were currentlycalling from their car somewhereon the road in the southeast. Theyhemmed and hawed a bit trying tofigure it out and finally Gary said,“We’re in the state of confusion.”This brought a guffaw from myend of the conversation, of course,since Pat and Gary are fairly mo-bile people, and I often have trou-ble figuring out exactly wherethey are at any given time. I wassomewhat in hopes that they atleast knew where they were evenif I didn’t. Eventually they did de-cide that they were currently inKentucky, having just come fromTennessee. They had also recentlybeen in Ohio, a Carolina or two, a Virginia or two etc.The purpose of their trip thistime was for Gary to attend aboard meeting of Child Evangel-ism Fellowship which is an organ-ization that leads Bible schoolsand related activities in varioushomes across the country. This isan international group, and some-times the board meetings are insuch places as Africa. If you getslightly confused about the geog-raphy of the United States, try tofigure Africa. The countries therechange their names at the drop of a hat, and very few are anythinglike you learned them in geogra-phy class.Well, from my understanding,Pat and Gary are currently head-ing back to Ohio where they lefttheir airplane due to poorweather. They had rented a carand driven to the meeting inSouth Carolina since flying wasnot in the cards. From Ohio, theyhope to fly to Warrington, Mis-souri and help at the Child Evan-gelism headquarters there for abit before flying back to SouthDakota. There is some hope I’ll beable to figure out where they arefor a while once they get back toMissouri, but nothing is certain.Maybe, or maybe not. Time willtell.As you know, confusion is fairlycommon with us humans, andmost of us have areas where wearen’t very sure of ourselves. Forinstance, if you ask me if some-thing is east or west, my answeris apt to be fairly reliable. If youinquire about north and south,there is only a fifty-percentchance that I’ll answer correctlyunless I take time to think aboutit. East and west come naturally,but north and south only by con-centration. Similarly, if you arefacing someone and they saysomething is to the left, you maywonder if it’s their left or yours.With some people, spelling is adifficult area. That is not too sur-prising since the English lan-guage has many contradictionsand complications. Take thewords, to, too and two which allsound alike but have differentspellings and meanings. There,their, and they’re aren’t so simpleeither. Just tonight, wife Corinneasked me how to spell “mezzo.” Ithad to do with the Scrabble gameshe was playing on the computer.The word is often used in musicalareas such as with a mezzo-so-prano or mezzo forte so she hopedI might know how to spell it sincemusic is my thing. Well, I had justlaid down for a nap and was abouthalf asleep. I tried to concentrateand finally told her it was spelled“metzo” since that is how it’s pro-nounced. She said that wasn’t inthe dictionary. Okay, try again.Finally it came to me, and I toldher it was spelled mezzo. The sadthing was that she could haveused that word in her game if theprogram would have accepted itby itself without being combinedwith another word such as so-prano, but it wouldn’t. It actuallyis a separate word althoughmaybe in Italian instead of Eng-lish so there you are. Those arethe breaks.Another area that can bogglethe mind is electronic equipment.When you have to trade your oldcell phone for a new one, it’s goingto take awhile to learn how toadapt to the changes. Technologyproceeds so quickly that it’s hardto keep up. The same applies to anew computer. I recently replaceda small laptop computer and hadto spend quite a long time gettingused to where everything was onthe replacement. It had the latestoperating system with which Iwasn’t familiar. Even the word-processing program had been up-dated and “improved” to the pointwhere it was hard to figure out. Igrumbled my way through it, butit took a while.So, confusion is unfortunatelynot uncommon with most of us.We just have to muddle throughpart of the time. Now, though, youknow how to answer the question,“Where are you?” You can justreply, “In a state of confusion.” Itmay not be a definitive answer,but at least it’s truthful.

Curse it all! First his watch hadstopped, so he had stayed for onemore drink, thinking he had time.Then another, and another. Lastcall?! He raced out for home. As hestepped on the gas to head out of town, he realized that his cellphone had the time. He fumbledwith it, but the battery was dead.He couldn’t even call with a lameexcuse saying he was on the way.Curse the rain! The blacktopwas slippery and so very dark. Histires must be hydroplaning tomake him swerve so much. But,he sped up; he was already so late.Damn! He skidded clear into thegrassy ditch at the corner to thegravel road. Still moving, hegunned it and got back onto theroad. Those ruts in the mud wouldbe there tomorrow for everyone tosee. The rutted gravel road wasmuddy and slick.What the? Flashers blinked athim from up ahead. A car wasstopped right in the way. What id-iotic fool would be on this gravelroad this time of night in the rain?He hit the brakes, swerving andthrowing wet gravel in all direc-tions. How he stayed between theditches and got stopped in timewas a miracle. The taste of second-hand beer and whiskey made himgrimace.The other car’s interior light sil-houetted an old woman standingoutside of the open driver’s door.The car was almost sideways onthe road. His headlights showedthe other car was tipped forwardon a flat front tire. He finallyfound his door handle, crawled outand held onto his car as he easedalong it, slipping as he made hisway toward the old lady. Blast it,he didn’t recognize her and hewanted so badly to cuss out some-body he knew.The old bat was all a-tither. Heslurred that he would help changeher tire. Her blasted trunk wasstuck, and when it finally flewopen it surprised him and he fellback in the mud. He didn’t care if she heard him or not. Hoistinghimself up against the bumper, henoticed the “68” license plates andcouldn’t place the county.The jack had to be placed on ahand-scooped mound of gravelrocks for stability. When the sparewas put on, he had to feel aroundin the mud to find the lug nuts. Fi-nally done, grimy as a pigwrestler, he said something notvery pleasant to her as he madehis way back to his car. In a sickly,syrupy pleasant voice, she calledback for him to have a blessednight. Yeah, right!The morning sun blindinglyglared through the windshield. Ittook several minutes for him to re-alize that he had fallen asleep inthe driver’s seat. The car wasparked in the middle of a gravelroad. His brain finally registeredthat he was still a few miles fromhome. His keys were missing; no,there they were on his dashboard.He looked down, expecting to seecaked mud, but he was no dirtierthan when he left the bar lastnight. The ache of a hangover wascoming on strong, but he had sleptoff most of the booze. He got out todo some business. There were notire tracks but his own, and theysnaked wickedly all the way backdown the road. Some strange oldlady ... “68” plates?He slowly, carefully continuedhome, thankful that he was stillalive to give a lame excuse.
Cursed night?

One of the things South Dakotais famous for is its honey, thatsweet stuff people have relishedfor thousands of years. Thatsweet, thick fluid produced bybees from the nectar of flowersand sweet clover, and wild flowersas well, is one of four of the bestin the world.Chris and Terry Baldwin of Belvidere, South Dakota, are oneof the most prominant honey pro-ducers in the area.

Doing Things Right
While recently conducting sun-flower surveys quite a distancefrom my office, I stopped in afarmyard to ask where I mightfind sunflower fields in the area.The farmer/rancher was veryhelpful and asked if I would lethim know what I came up withfor a yield estimate as he had agood percentage of them con-tracted.As we visited, the topic of pri-vate crop consultants came upand he highly complimented theagronomist who monitored hisfields on a weekly basis and pro-vided recommendations. He madethe statement that his wheatyields had doubled since he hadhired his crop consultant. He hadpurchased a newer model rowcrop planter for that season andwas confident that his seed place-ment and spacing was greatly im-proved.He also relayed a couple of rec-ommendations that he had re-fused to follow during the droughtof 2012, because he thought hiscrop had such low yield potentialand he resisted putting any moremoney into a crop that he had lit-tle hopes for.At harvest time, the weeds hehad received the recommendationto spray were in the best area of the field, but the yield in that partof the field was the lowest, and hewas sure it was due to the weedshe hadn’t sprayed. In a nutshell,this producer said that without adoubt, the money he pays for cropconsulting is well worth it. As hiswife said, “if you’re not going to dowhat they recommend, why didyou hire them?”This is a tremendous testa-ment to the crop consulting firmand the agronomists they have onstaff, as well as evidence that fol-lowing good production practicespays off. This is also a testamentto South Dakota State University,where his agronomist received hiscollege education.Hiring crop consulting servicesis not for every farmer, but doesseem to be becoming more com-mon. As farms become larger, sodo the demands on the farm man-agers’ time and expertise. Thereseems to be an endless array of weeds, herbicide options, insectpests, diseases, fertilizer prod-ucts, production practices andother things a farm managerneeds to know in order to stay ontop of their game.Some farmers are very good atkeeping up with the latest infor-mation and feel comfortablescouting fields and making deci-sions, while others prefer to hiresomeone to do this for them.Whether you hire your agronomyservices or prefer to go on yourown, stay informed by attendingthat chemical, seed or Extensionmeeting that’s offered. You’ll al-most certainly learn somethingyou can use. Even if you hire acrop consultant, being informedhelps you ask intelligent ques-tions. The bottom line; doingthings right can pay big divi-dends.

Range Day in the Badlands
The Philip seventh grade students participated in the annual Range Day in the Badlands. Kim Bouman, their scienceinstructor, and Shelia Trask, with the Haakon County Conservation District, chaperoned the students. The day’sactivities, sponsored by the Jackson County Conservation District, were held on the Gene Williams ranch near In-terior. Williams’ ranch has been used for the past eight to 10 years because he is active in the JCCD and wantedthe kids to learn about the land. Students learned about soil content, what makes sinkholes, where the rocks orig-inated from, plants native to that area, the amount of grazing grass needed by one cow, animals located aroundthere, and fossils of other animals from years before. Shown, back row, from left are Wynn Schaack, Cylver Lurz,Cappie West, Morgan Cantrell, Sam Fillingim, Carson Hamill, Brice Hanson and Wade Kroetch. Middle row:Khalen Martin, Jewel Jones, Kari Kanable, Kelsey Hand, Brittney Park, Jasmine Ferguson, Aitanna Nadala andBrandon McLaughlin. Front: Sage Gabriel, Pedro Dennis, Kaitlyn Fosheim, Lane Williams, John Daly, Lane Kochers-berger and Corbin Kramer.
