Through the years Mt. MoriahLodge has not only been a land-mark, but a real part of the com-munity. It has served as a fraternalmeeting place for Masons, EasternStar and Job's Daughters, a WPA office, temporary classrooms, ball-room, gymnastics floor, quilt show-room and, on one occasion, awedding facility. The Lion's Clubmet monthly and held their Bingonights in the lodge basement formany years. Chances are mostJackson Co. residents have dinedthere at Election Day Luncheons,Grazing Association banquets,bake sales and other fine meals. In-terestingly the third floor was evenhome to a destitute masonicbrother and his family for a timeduring the Great Depression.Mt. Moriah Lodge is on the Na-tional Register of Historic Placesfor it's unique architecture and therole it's members played in JacksonCounty history. The membershiphas received an historic grant forrepair and painting of the exterior,scheduled for spring.Two years ago in January wasthe historic property's darkest hourwhen extensive flood damage fromfrozen pipes required the basementbe gutted. With only fire insurancecoverage, reclamation is still ongo-ing. To date the lower level lobbyand bathrooms have been restored.The dining room and kitchen workin the 33 x 66 foot basement is on-going.If you see the light on, knock onthe side door and come on in. You'llprobably be treated to an historictour and maybe some homemadecookies.For more information on, becom-ing a member, the history, purposeand charitable work of Freemasonsand the Order of the Eastern Starin South Dakota log on towww.mastermason.com/south-dakota or www.oeshugs.com.

The lights are on at historic Mt.Moriah Lodge, a Kadoka MainStreet icon. Built in 1916, the threestory Neo-Classical style buildingwas raised in less than a year bythe local masonic members. Manyof those masons brought theirskills 10 years before, when theyhelped found Kadoka as the rail-road came through. It was no aver-age plasterer who finished the 20foot, vaulted ceiling of the lodge'smain meeting room.Records indicate that when thefunding, from the sale of bonds,was exceeded by $2,000 a member,who ranched locally, covered theshortfall out of his own pocket.Most of the lumber, including bird-seye maple flooring and cherrypocket doors, came from a sawmillin Michigan owned by one of thecharter member's father. The lodgebuilding was actually erected be-fore main street was leveled (seephoto on pg. 79 of old Jackson andWashabaugh Co. history book).On it's dedication the buildingwas touted as “the largest edifice of it's kind in the world, for the size of the membership and the commu-nity”. At that time the organiza-tion was doubling it's membershipannually. Some early membersfrom Bennett Co. would catch thetrain in Merriman, NE, ride viaRapid City and down to Kadoka formonthly meetings.

Church Calendar 
It was the trip of a lifetime. Al-most 16 years ago ten families fromall over the U.S. were brought to-gether in a southern Chinese cityto adopt baby girls. This summer,nine of these same familiesbrought our daughters back to seetheir birth country.This time we started up northnear Beijing at a different orphan-age, an American church-spon-sored place for children withspecial needs. They find donationmoney for surgery to fix cleft lips,heart defects, tumors and boneymalformations, and then they helpthese kids get adopted.Our nine girls, along with threesisters and ten parents, assignedthemselves the job of playing withthose kids for two days, in order togive back a little before we startedtouring.Then we journeyed to see theGreat Wall, Tiananmen Square,the Forbidden City, terra cotta sol-diers, a panda preserve, and finallythe three orphanages from whereour children originally came. Wewere welcomed with the red-carpettreatment by orphanage directorsand high-level government offi-cials, as no large group such asours had as yet returned in thisway.There are several health relatedissues in China, about which wecan learn, starting with water andair pollution. There a clean envi-ronment appears a less importantpriority. Although their economyappears to be booming with bigpublic works construction, thestreets were filled with many morecars, motor scooters, and fewerbikes than 16 years ago. Cigarettesmoke hung everywhere, includingrestaurants, as many more obvi-ously smoke in China than in theU.S. Water was not as clean as weare used to, and we used bottledwater even to brush teeth. I returnto the American soil appreciatingmore than ever our clean air, skies,and water.But China has a wonderful tra-dition worth bringing here. Inevery square and public gatheringplace, each morning and evening,even in the steamy heat, we sawpeople happily exercising, dancing,stretching, and moving… mostly tomusic. As one young guide told me,“Especially the elderly realize thatthe key to staying alive is being ac-tive.” We in the US would benefitby following that example.Finally I would emphasize, and Iknow I speak for our nine familieswith China daughters, that thewarm sharing nature and the wel-coming culture of the people of China made it the trip of a lifetime.

 Altering Recipes for Health
Have you ever found a recipethat looks so tasty you can hardlywait to prepare it—but when youstudy it closer, you realize it maynot be good for your health? Do youhave a collection of delicious fam-ily recipes that have been handeddown through the years? Have youever considered making smallchanges to those recipes thatwould decrease problem ingredi-ents with healthier ingredient sub-stitutes?Use the Step Approach to alteryour favorite recipes for goodhealth. The First Step is to look forthe “problem ingredients” thatmake a recipe high in fat, choles-terol and sodium. This will get youon track with the 2010 DietaryGuidelines for Americans, whichdescribe a healthy diet as one that:1. Emphasizes fruits, vegetables,whole grains, and fat-free or low-fat milk and milk products; 2. In-cludes lean meats, poultry, fish,beans, eggs, and nuts; and 3. Islow in saturated fats, trans fats,cholesterol, salt, sodium, andadded sugars.The Second Step is to find youringredient substitutes. Do this byreducing the amount or substitutean ingredient that is healthier foryou. You can reduce the fat in bak-ing by one-third to one-half inrecipes. Another option is to useapplesauce; if the recipe calls for 1cup of butter--use 1 cup of apple-sauce in place of the butter. Tryusing plain, non-fat yogurt in placeof sour cream.Reduce your sodium to 2300 mga day or less. Try replacing saltwith herbs and spices to flavorfoods. Consider using fruit juice orwine for cooking liquid instead of broth or bouillon. Choose no-saltadded products.Reduce sugar by one-quarter toone-third in baked goods anddesserts (this saves 200 to 300calories.) Increase flavorings suchas cinnamon or vanilla to enhancethe sweetness.The Third Step is to change yourmethod of preparation. As an ex-ample, try baking an item insteadof frying it. Leave skins on fruitsand vegetables when possible toincrease fiber. Altering recipes for good healthdoesn’t have to be a difficult chal-lenge. Healthy, tasty cooking caninclude decreasing fat, sugar andsalt in most recipes, while increas-ing the fiber, vitamins and miner-als.

Read John 4:7-30Take an honest look at your life. Do you feel wholeand complete, or is there the sense that something'smissing? If you're aware of an emptiness, what are youusing to try and fill that void? Is it relationships withfamily and friends? Or have you opted for achievements, hoping they will bring a sense of significance?Maybe you use a substance or activity of some kind to deaden the need or to bring temporary comfort.Jesus met a woman with just such an empty place in her soul. She was longing for love but had beenrepeatedly rejected. In those days, a man could divorce his wife simply because she displeased him insome way. The Samaritan woman had gone through this rejection five times and was now seeking to fillup her soul with a man who wasn't her husband.She probably tried to cover up her emptiness so those around her wouldn't see her hurt, but whenJesus met her at the well and told her all that she had done, her days of hiding were over. She had finallyfound the only One who could bring wholeness to her life. Before you can fill the emptiness in your soul,you, too, must let Christ's piercing gaze penetrate into the depths of your heart and reveal the root causeof your incompleteness.We were created for God. All other pursuits are inadequate substitutes and will never bring the lastingsatisfaction we are seeking. Life has a way of beating us down, leaving us empty and disillusioned. Butwhen we allow Christ unrestricted access to our hearts, He fills us up with His unfailing love.

 Wetwood Disease of Cottonwood and Elm Trees
Wetwood disease is a commonailment of cottonwood and elms.The disease manifests itself inter-nally with an elevated pH andmineral content, more water andgas under pressure.Wetwood is a bacterial disease.The internal liquid spreads intothe outer sapwood and from theremoves out of the tree throughcracks in branch crotches or oldpruning wounds. The bark bleach-ing is due to the high pH of this liq-uid.The disease is sometimes asso-ciated with symptoms of leaf scorch and yellows and sometimeseven branch dieback. However,often the only symptom expressedby the disease is the streaking onthe bark and otherwise the treegrows just fine. Regardless thereare no effective treatments for thedisease and drilling holes in thetree to relieve pressure may causemore problems than it cures.For more information on treeand shrub diseases, insect pestsand other ailments, click the “Pest Alert Archives” on the “Educa-tional Information” page on the SDDept of Ag, “Conservation &Forestry” website:http://sdda.sd.gov/Forestry/educa-tional-information/default.aspx.
Black Knot Diseaseof Cherry and Plum
Black knot, also known as deadman’s finger, is a very commonfungal disease of cherry andplums. These black, coal-like galls,sometimes covered with a whitepower, can often be found liningthe branches and trunks of suscep-tible trees. A common recommendation isto prune out these galls during thewinter months, but this has verylimited value. First, these galls arethe second year’s infection. Thefirst year infection is only indi-cated by a slight greenish swellingof the tissue. If these shoots arenot also removed they will grow toform the blacked masses the fol-lowing year, so it is hard to getahead of the disease by pruning.The other problem is only cer-tain trees are very susceptible toblack knot and once they get thedisease you can probably expectthe tree to become infected againregardless of your pruning efforts.Cutting the tree down is probablythe best approach. When plantingcherry (including chokecherry) andplum, look for varieties resistant tothe disease.

Look at the pictures on yourwalls. What do they tell about you?Quite a bit, probably. We, for ex-ample, have a picture of two youngkids running down the hill forhome after being cooped up in acountry school all day. This mightindicate that wife Corinne is aschool teacher and has taught at acountry school, which is so. Wealso have a nice print of a buttethat figured largely in Corinne’schildhood since it sticks up abovethe landscape near her hometownand is pretty hard to miss. Anotherlarge print is of a stream runningthrough forested hills as might beseen in the western part of ourstate and not far from the buttepreviously mentioned.Fortunately, I like at least twoof those paintings. I attended acountry school in the early grades,and, although I have no particularfeelings about the butte, it is welldone in colors that please me. Theforested hills not so much sincemountains and forests tend to giveme claustrophobia, but the scene isof a clearing and the greens are inpleasant tones.I, too, have a wall hanging thatisn’t a favorite with Corinne. It’s adream catcher with the skull of asmall animal in the center. Some-how, my frau isn’t big on suspend-ing dead critters from the wall, butat least she hasn’t snatched thething down and flung it out thedoor just yet. She has no major ob- jection to the various sunset andsilhouette photos of mine that I’veenlarged and hung here and there.Being ranchers and of the ruralpersuasion, we are not short of thenext horse picture either or shotsof particularly nice birds and flow-ers.In many homes in this area,cowboy is king. You might seemajor wall hangings of JohnWayne as he appeared in one of hisWestern movies. Sitting aroundthe room might be various objectsor representations of such thingsas cowboy hats, boots, spurs,chaps, saddles, horses, cattle, tack,ropes and the like.Similarly, on the coast, you areapt to find images of the ocean,surf, ships, seashells, and that sortof thing. Since I do love the oceanalthough second to the prairie, I dohave a large original painting of waves rolling up onto a beach. It’squite nice but isn’t hanging rightnow as there is no good place for it,nor are oceans high on the hit pa-rade with Corinne. We once stayedat a motel that was on a pier overa bay, and she came down withbronchitis. She also inclines to-wards motion sickness so theprospect of long voyages does notfill her with delight. She isn’t eventhat fond of walking on the beach,picking up shells, or playing in thesurf (which I am.)If you’re a hunter or fisherman,this opens up another large assort-ment of visual choices, namelydeer, elk, antelope, bass, walleyes,ducks, pheasants, wild turkeys etc.If you’re into such things, youwould like my dentist’s office— wildlife everywhere but runningstrongly to ducks. Nephew Scottlives and breathes this stuff too,and his collection of mounted tro-phies has outrun his own home sothat some are on the walls of myfolks’ old house across the wayfrom ours. That house is fre-quently home to Scott and hiscronies who come to hunt and fishas often as they can.The other day I was somewhattaken aback at a bachelor pad Ivisited. There was not a thinghanging on the walls. A few familyphotos were displayed on a smallstand by one wall, but, other thanthat, the walls were virgin terri-tory. The resident either had noartistic sense or interest, or wasn’tin the place long enough to domuch with it. At least there wereno large posters of buxom lasses.Speaking of artistic sense, theway in which you display a collec-tion of pictures will tell somethingabout you as well. If my mom hadthree things she wanted to hang,they would always be in a linestraight across. There would benone of this sloping to enhance thecurve or flow of the room.Foursquare was her style. I’m theopposite. I want groupings to besomewhat arty.So, if you don’t want people toknow much about you, watch whatyou hang on the wall. They mighttell the story. Personally, I’m intopretty sights and like interestingand colorful things around mewherever I happen to be. MaybeI’m taking a page from my Heav-enly Father’s notebook when hesays, “Fix your thoughts on whatis true and honorable and right.Think about things that are pureand lovely and admirable. Thinkabout things that are excellent andworthy of praise.” Not a bad idea.Nice pictures on the wall can help.

Pastor Denke visited in the Billand Marjorie Letellier home onMonday.Harry and Jeanne Merchen keptappointments in Hot Springs andRapid City on Monday. Harry hasbeen enjoying using his hundredyear old John Deere walking plowlately. Harry restored the antiquethis winter while in Arizona. Heand Jeanne planted potatoes withit last week. Sounds like fun, guys.Tuesday morning the JamesLetelliers were among the 100 folksattending the groundbreaking forthe new fire hall at Parmelee.Other area folks attending wereHoward and Nette Heinert, BenHuber, representing the WhiteRiver Fire Department, and theRosebud Sioux Tribe sent their firecrew with their trucks as well.Howard Heinert has been with theproject from its beginning in 2004,when he served as a county com-missioner; Nette is serving astreasurer. It was a very nice cele-bration complete with dignitariesand gold shovels and a chili lunchwas served at the Lord’s WarriorsLutheran Church following theevent. Little Michael Smith withhis red fireman’s helmet and goldshovel stole the show.Unless you live in an “out of theway” place like Parmelee, you haveno idea what a big deal this reallyis for them to have their own firetrucks and hall. It will be nice to beable to protect their own homesand lands in case of fire withouthaving to hope and pray that a dis-tant fire department aren’t alreadybusy somewhere else. When light-ning strikes it usually does it inmore places than one that samenight. The folks all went home anx-ious to see the day when they canactually have a new fire hall stand-ing at the site -- ready to protectthe fire trucks, that will in turnprotect them. The surrounding res-idents sure appreciate Susan Kary,who has spearheaded the entirefire hall project.Tuesday, Bill and MarjorieLetellier accompanied Gary Letel-lier to Winner. They also traveledwith him to Rapid City on Thurs-day. Glad to hear you are gettingout some.

Hope the day is as specialas you are!Sunday after Mass, JoAnnLetellier attended a Parish Councilmeeting at the Our Lady of VictoryCatholic Church.The South Dakota Stockgrowers Association sent a letter to USDept of Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack this week calling for addi-tional reform to the Beef Check-off program.In the letter to Secretary Vil-sack, Stockgrowers PresidentShane Kolb said, "We feel stronglythat producer confidence must berestored to the Beef check-off pro-gram in order to continue the pro-gram as a benefit to producers."The Beef Check-off program is afederal mandate that requires onedollar of every beef animal sold inthe United States to be paid for useto promote and research beef. Thepromotion and research work iscontracted to private organizations,mostly the National Cattlemen'sBeef Association and their affili-ates.South Dakota Stockgrowermembers have become wary of theBeef Check-off program after re-cent audits found a lack of trans-parency and inadequate firewallsto separate producer check-off funds from the NCBA's privatework as a lobby organization.Those lobby efforts have often beenin conflict with the policies sup-ported by other producer groups in-cluding Stockgrowers. Additionally,the legislation that governs theBeef Check-off program explicitlydenies the use of check-off moneysfor any lobbying by any contractor."It is becoming increasingly dif-ficult for our members to justifysending their hard earned dollarsto a contracting organization with-out more substantial assurancethat the money is being separatedfrom any lobbying efforts.""At a time when the UnitedStates Beef herd is experiencing itslowest numbers ever, and con-sumer confidence is being repeat-edly shaken through issues like thelean finely textured beef discus-sion, we need a strong beef promo-tion program working forproducers more than ever." Kolbclosed the letter by saying, "We feelthat these changes would make sig-nificant strides toward restoringproducer confidence and supportfor the Beef Check-off program.The Stockgrowers Board of Di-rectors have called for reforms toinclude:Amending the Beef Promotion Act by1) allowing the Cattlemen's Beef Board to become a completely inde-pendent and freestanding organi-zation, and2) lifting the 5 percent cap onCBB administrative costs so it canfinances its own independent meet-ings without assistance from or co-ordination with any policyorganization.An amendment to the Beef Pro-motion Act that would limit anyone organization from beingawarded contracts that equal morethan fifty percent of the totalcheck-off dollars in any calendaryear and that no portion of the beef check-off dollars awarded to suchan organization be used to pay forany portion of salaries or benefitsof people employed by a policy orlobbying organization or of an indi-vidual consultant or lobbyist.A change in policy that accom-plishes 1) a complete separation be-tween any policy organization andFederation of State Beef Councilsto provide for complete check-off accountability, 2) an increase incheck-off fees to be tied to a two-year periodic producer referendumon the check-off program, and 3)the beef check-off program shouldbe housed with other mandatorycheck-off programs under USDA.
