This is the time of year whenhornets like to sit on doorknobsand catch you unaware. There isno good reason for them to bethere, but they are. I suspect it is just so you can offend them whichgives them a good excuse to stingyou before flying off in righteousindignation. I have been stungseveral times just trying to getinto the house on a warm fall dayin past years, but most of the timeI see the nasty yellow and blackthings beforehand and shoo themaway. Alternately, I feel somethingwiggle in my hand and let go veryquickly. Still, sometimes you getstung.This is just one example of themany hazards we have to watchfor and try to avoid in life. In thisstate, ice can be a problem. Mostwinters we have a spell of coldsome time or other with slipperysurfaces underfoot. One year I ba-sically fell under the pickup justtrying to get out of it. Luckily, Iwas well padded with thick winterclothing so mostly it was my pridethat was injured and not my body.That isn’t always the case. A young friend of ours told us he hadfallen on the ice the same week Idid, but he had a good reason forit. According to him, he had “self-induced balance problems” at thetime. In other words, he had lin-gered a little too long at the barbefore walking home.Our country roads have beenknown to be hazardous as well. Idon’t know how many times overthe years I’ve crept down our steepcreek hill in a pickup to avoid slip-ping over the edge due to eithermud or ice. When the roads arelike that, I prefer to just stay athome, but that isn’t always com-pletely possible. Occasionally youhave to take your heart in yourhands and risk it. It isn’t muchfun, but I haven’t ever actuallyhad a wreck in the process. I havegotten stuck and had to walkhome or for help, but at least thevehicle and I have always bothstayed in one piece.Other things to be on the look-out for around here might includerattlesnakes, spiders, blizzards,tornados, and bats. With snakesyou soon learn to look whereyou’re going in warm weatherwhen they are out and about.Don’t walk quickly through tallgrass and that sort of thing, andkick stumps over before pickingthem up. I’ve had enough closecalls in the past to keep me watch-ful. There is still a danger no mat-ter how careful you are as myneighbor found out this summer.She was just weeding a flowerpatch when she felt pain in herhand and then saw a rattler thathad slithered out of its hidingplace in some cement blocks andbitten her. She, in consequence,had to make a hurried trip to thedoctor and a stay in the hospitalfor a few days. Bats, by the way,are generally not something thatgive you any trouble. I just hatethem and like to stay out of theirway. Almost anywhere you live, youwill find risks of some sort orother. The main one in Californiaas far as I can tell is driving onfreeways. Those people are crazydrivers and like to go at full speed,bumper to bumper, and then sud-denly screech to a halt. This tooka little getting used to, and I neverdid care much for it. Some areas of the cities should also be avoided if at all possible or driven throughonly with fully locked doors.In New Orleans, I also avoidedwalking down dark alleys at nightwhen I had a room in the FrenchQuarter. It wasn’t a dreadfullyscary place, but you should keepyour eyes open. I know radio an-tennas were not worth replacingbecause they routinely got brokenoff. Certain people there musthave a fetish about antennas sinceyou could never keep one on yourcar for very long. It also was bestto leave your car unlocked at nightsince then no one would botheryour vehicle. If you locked it, theyfigured there was somethingworthwhile inside so they’d breakin. The car thing is not so much aperil. It’s just symptomatic of thekind of people you’re dealing with.Personally, I prefer living herewhere critters and weather posethe main problems and not otherpeople. Anyway, there are certain haz-ards around us that we need to beaware of so we can avoid them.Fortunately, I don’t expect muchdanger any more today since I’mnot going anywhere or doingmuch. I probably should avoid eat-ing anything that will give me in-digestion or add any poundagewhere I don’t need it. Other thanthat, I should be fairly safe. Nev-ertheless, I’ll try to keep my witsabout me and stay out of trouble.Luckily, my Lord constantly looksafter me and helps me out. Thattakes a lot of worry out of thewhole business and gives mepeace of mind. I’m very thankfulfor that.
Defending ourHunting andFishing Traditions
Hunting and fishing are a wayof life in South Dakota. Like manyacross the state, I have greatmemories of heading out to thestock dam with my Dad, rod inhand, working hard to land a big-ger fish than him. Sometimes wecaught our limit, sometimes wewent home empty-handed—butwe always had a great time. WhileI don’t make it out fishing muchanymore, pheasant hunting is adifferent story. Nothing beats thefeeling of knocking down the firstpheasant on opening day, walkingthe field with old friends, and end-ing the evening telling embel-lished stories of the “shot of day.”South Dakotans have a greatappreciation for the outdoors andfor the sporting traditions that notonly provide endless hours of en-tertainment, but also provide sig-nificant economic benefits to ourstate. However, potential Environ-ment Protection Agency (EPA)regulations could dramaticallychange the availability of huntingammunition and fishing tackle forsportsmen and women throughoutthe country. Some in the environ-mental community want the EPA to ban traditional lead in huntingammunition and fishing tackle, in-creasing the cost and pricing somesportsmen and women out of themarket. According to industry ex-perts, metallic non-traditional am-munition makes up only onepercent of the market share.In response to these regula-tions, I introduced legislationalong with Senator AmyKlobuchar (D-Minn.) that wouldprotect ammunition and fishingtackle from unnecessary EPA reg-ulation by excluding it from theToxic Substances Control Act.Our bill, the Hunting, Fishing,and Recreational Shooting Protec-tion Act, would instead leave theregulation of these items up to theagencies that currently regulateboth ammunition and tackle. Ourbill is supported by the NationalRifle Association, Safari Club,Congressional Sportsmen’s Foun-dation, Wildlife Forever, and otherhunting and fishing groups. As co-chair of the CongressionalSportsmen’s Caucus and as anavid outdoorsman, I will continueto work with my colleagues inCongress to put an end to theEPA’s far-reaching and burden-some regulations, and to help en-sure that future generations of South Dakotans are not unneces-sarily restricted from hunting,fishing, and enjoying the greatoutdoors.South Dakota andthroughout our country.

The Path toUnderstanding theProper Diet
We have been on the path to un-derstanding the proper diet thatprevents heart attacks or strokes. Although most believe a lifestyle of moderate physical activityand avoidance of smoke is impor-tant in preventing atherosclerosis,there remains no consistent an-swer to which diet is most protec-tive in preventing early aging of blood vessels.For years we thought it was ano-egg, low fat, and more vegetar-ian diet, but in recent years ex-perts have started endorsing moremeat. It began when a fad, low-carbohydrate, weight-loss diet be-came clearly more successful thanthe standard more vegetariandiet. Reported in the medical jour-nals, researchers found that thoseeating less bread, potatoes, andsweets lost more weight and feltbetter than those eating lessmeats and fats. Alas, after a yearboth groups were equally unsuc-cessful in keeping the weight off,but we learned from it. Add to this what we’ve knownfor years about the medical condi-tions of food intolerance. There isintolerance to lactose, which is thenatural sugar of milk, and celiacdisease, which is intolerance togluten, a protein in many cerealsespecially wheat. Anthropologiststell us these problems did notoccur in hunter-gather societiesuntil about 10,000 years ago whenfarming developed and humanitybecame exposed to animal milkand wheat.It is also intriguing that studiesof twentieth century hunter-gath-erers, whose diets are about 65%wild game meat and 35% gatheredplant food, show them to be gener-ally free of the signs and symp-toms of cardiovascular disease.Could it be then that the eatinghabits of our ancestral pre-farm-ing Paleolithic people living 2.5million years ago until 10,000years ago are guiding us along apath to prevent heart attacks andstroke in modern humans?Those who don’t swallow thistheory advise us that back then,most people had to walk about anhour a day to survive, had smallerportions of food when they hadfood at all, and that most didn’tlive past 30 years of age anyway.These contrarians state that 500generations of living with anagrarian diet has been enough toevolve tolerance to lactose andgluten with only an occasionalthrowback who doesn’t tolerateour modern diet of milk and bread.I think the path to preventing aheart attack is not by avoidingmeat and fat, or even milk andbread, but rather by simply eatingsmaller portions and daily walk-ing along any path.

State Veterans Home
Last Wednesday, I attended thegroundbreaking ceremony for theState Veterans Home in HotSprings. As I spoke with veterans,their families and local leaders, Iwas reminded again of how impor-tant it is to honor and serve thosewho have fought for our freedom.In South Dakota, we have a his-tory of taking care of our veteransdating back to the Civil War.Thousands of Union veteranscame to South Dakota after theCivil War, along with a few Con-federate veterans, and seven CivilWar Generals were buried in ourstate. In 1889, the Dakota Terri-tory became the first of all the ter-ritories to provide a home for itsveterans, but not without strug-gle.In 1886, Dakotans and theGrand Army of the Republic(GAR), an organization for CivilWar veterans, persuaded the ter-ritorial Legislature to pass a billfor construction of the soldier’shome, but to their dismay, territo-rial Gov. Louis Church vetoed thebill. The Dakota GAR spent threeyears discussing the proposal withthe Governor in an attempt tochange his mind. The GARthought their lobbying efforts hadbeen successful until Gov. Churchsurprised them by vetoing the billagain. The debate continued forseveral more days until finally, theLegislature overrode the veto.Just nine days after SouthDakota became a state, on Nov. 11,1889, the cornerstone for the firstState Veterans Home was laid inHot Springs. Ironically, that cor-nerstone was laid on what we nowknow as Veterans Day – twenty-nine years before the date gainedits significance with the armisticethat closed the First World War.Just as it was a challenge forthe first South Dakotans to estab-lish the first State Veterans Home,establishing the new home in HotSprings hasn’t been easy. Our firstrequest for a $23 million federalgrant was turned down. Then thebids came in too high. After thestate engineer opened the bids forthe project, it became apparentthat the amount estimated by thearchitect would not cover the costof the Veterans Home. We evenplanned a special legislative ses-sion to allocate more funds so theproject would not be derailed.To find a solution, I workedwith the Lieutenant Governor, theSouth Dakota Department of Vet-erans Affairs and members of mystaff.We spent many hours consider-ing alternative designs and work-ing with the VA. After months of long meetings, the federal VA agreed to extend our grant, whichgave us time to consider alterna-tive designs and bring down thecost of the project without addi-tional state funds.Before the construction of thefirst State Veterans Home wascomplete, Gov. Arthur Mellettetold the South Dakota Legisla-ture, “It becomes your duty to pro-vide suitably for the maintenancefor those who have so richlyearned the gratitude of a patrioticpeople.”No matter the challenges, wemust always work to take care of those who have fought for our free-dom. Gov. Mellette never said itwould be easy, but in SouthDakota, we’re known for choosing“the right” over “the easy.”Through hard work and persever-ance we will continue to give backto those who have given so muchfor us.
