The Jackson County Commis-
sioners met on Monday, September
10. Commissioners Jim Stilwell,
Glen Bennett, Ronnie Twiss, Larry
Denke and Delores Bonenberger
were present, along with Larry
Johnston, who will serve on the
board and replace Bonenberger in
January.
Three notices of hospitalization
and a mental illness notice were re-
viewed. No action was taken.
Discussion was held on the Oc-
tober meeting. The regular meeting
date would on the 8th, which is also
Native American Day, and ob-
served by the county. After discus-
sion, it was decided to move the
meeting date to Monday, October 1.
The financial statement was
presented by County Auditor Vicki
Wilson.
The emergency management
fund had a negative balance due to
no funds have been received from
the state department yet. Wilson
stated that in previous years, funds
from the state have been received
in September. Motion carried to
transfer $3,000 to the fund.
Correspondence was received
from Wallworth County Title Com-
pany that stated they would agree
to pay $125 per book for a digital
copy of all the records in the Regis-
ters of Deeds Office.
Group health insurance rates
were presented. Current rates are
$569.31 per employee and with the
rate increase, for the same plan,
the monthly cost would be $588.89.
A motion carried to continue with
the same coverage plan for 2013.
Currently there are 16 employ-
ees who utilize the health insur-
ance offered by the county and the
plan has a $4,000 deductible.
Commissioner Bennett pre-
sented quotes from Farm Bureau
agent Glen Parsons of Philip for
GAP insurance. The GAP insur-
ance would cover part of the de-
ductible and would cost
approximately $998 per month.
Bennett proposed the possibility
of offering GAP insurance instead
of employee raises. Wilson stated
that there are over 30 county em-
ployees and only 16 are on the
group health policy. Those who do
not have county health insurance
would not eligible for the GAP in-
surance and would not receive that
type of wage increase. No action
was taken.
Wilson stated that County
Treasurer Cindy Willert had three
parcels of property that were taken
on tax deed and need to be sold at
public auction. The commissioners
set the auction to be held at the
next meeting on October 1, along
with other surplus items.
Motion carried to go into execu-
tive session, with Johnston pres-
ent, to discuss a bill that was
presented at 11:28 a.m. Returning
to open session at 11:32 a.m., a mo-
tion was made by Bonenberger and
seconded by Bennett to pay $125
for an employee physical and sug-
gest that the employee be responsi-
ble for the remaining balance.
Wilson questioned whether Ben-
nett should second the motion ac-
cording to Robert’s Rule of Order
and Bennett responded, it’s fine.
Motion carried.
Bills were presented and re-
viewed. Motion carried to deny two
billings; one for a magazine sub-
scription and another from Clinic
Laboratory for an unauthorized au-
topsy.
Shortly after 11:30 a.m. the
hearing was opened for the consid-
eration of adding a section of road
to the county highway system. The
road addition petition was submit-
ted by Vona Fite.
The section of road for consider-
ation was south from Highway 248
to the Fite residence.
Discussion was held on whether
this section was considered a road
or a driveway. It was stated that
since the road only led to a resi-
dence, it was a driveway. Motion
carried to deny the road addition to
the highway system.
A pipeline easement was ap-
proved for Veryl Prokop for a water
line to be installed across CS 80
(Red Stone Road).
A petition was presented from
Jeff Willert requesting 3/4 of a mile
of road be added to the highway
system. The section of road goes
south from Highway 248 to a house
site, where Willert plans to estab-
lish his residence, on old Highway
16. A hearing date was set for Oc-
tober 1.
Highway Superintendent Mitch
Olney met with the commissioners.
Discussion was held on repairing
blowouts along some of the county
roads.
Twiss stated he has attempted
to contact other entities in regards
to changing the channel flow of
Lost Dog Creek.
A gravel contract was approved
with Dennis Sharp for +/- 10,000
ton for 60¢ a ton.
Bennett presented information
on a loader scale that was being of-
fered for sale, by bids, from Brook-
ings County. Motion carried to
place a bid in the amount of $4,300
for the scale and $1,700 for instal-
lation.
Denke said that a landowner
was wanting to install a cattle-
guard and was inquiring about the
specifications. Width of the cattle-
guard, support structures and
placement of the cattleguard was
discussed. The specifications were
not clarified and would need to be
researched.

Boyd L. Porch, Kadoka, was pre-
sented the Wright Brothers Master
Pilot Award by the Federal Aviation
Administration (FAA), September
8, during a South Dakota Pilots As-
sociation (SDPA) meeting in
Spearfish.
The FAA honored Porch for 50
accident free years of flying and
presented him with a plaque and a
blue ribbon package of his accom-
plishments and records over his
flying career. The SDPA presented
Porch’s wife, Pat, with a plaque
and the FAA presented a pin for
her support of him being a pilot.
“I was really pleased when they
handed me the plaque. I was ex-
pecting a piece of paper,” said B.
Porch, a veterinarian in Kadoka.
There are many stringent re-
quirements to earning the award.
The main one are the pilot must
have 50 years of documented
United States piloting experience,
the entire time holding a Civil Avi-
ation Authority or FAA pilot certifi-
cate. Porch’s three letters of
recommendation from fellow pilots
were written by Southwest Airlines
pilot Brian Brost, Sioux Falls, and
Vern VanderMay and Marsha
Sumpter, both of Kadoka. Porch
was told by Steve Hamilton, with
the SDPA, that there are only
about 30 such recognized pilots in
South Dakota.
“The whole process has been a lot
of fun,” said his wife, Pat. “It was a
great experience to look back over
all the flying experiences.” Back in
1994, she gave Boyd a gift certifi-
cate to the River of No Return Fly-
ing School in Challis, Idaho. Boyd
wrote in his flying history that
since that time, he has flown into
the mountain strips of Idaho three
times, including a camping trip
with his wife to a remote airstrip at
the confluence of Moose Creek and
the Selway River. He wrote that it
was very beautiful and exciting for
a flatlander like himself.
“Some guys can’t get their wives
to go with them, but Pat was al-
ways willing and did a lot of trav-
eling with me. We’ve flown quite a
little bit,” said Porch. Such trips in-
clude to Denver, Colo., Saulte Ste.
Marie, Mich., Missoula, Mont., and
Wichita, Kan. Times, though, have
changed a bit. “We used to not have
them, but now Global Positioning
Systems are wonderful. You just
follow the line,” explained Porch.
“Got into a snowstorm down by
Martin one time, that was kind of
scary,” exclaimed Porch, “but I’ve
been pretty cautious about flying.
Two things can be dangerous –
horses and airplanes – they both
can hurt you if you’re not careful.
There was a time when there was
no vet in Philip and I was pretty
much the only one between Cham-
berlain and Rapid City. That was
the excuse, but the truth could
come out,” joked Porch, who admit-
ted he just loves to fly every chance
he gets.
A brief summary of Porch’s pilot-
ing history was read at the presen-
tation by Steve Hoogerhyde, FAA
safety team program manager –
operations. “In 1958, Boyd and his
brother took flying lessons in Mar-
tin, S.D., and after only eight hours
of instruction they both soloed
around the Martin Airport.
“Boyd’s brother purchased a
Piper J-3 with an 85 horsepower
engine for only $850. On one occa-
sion, Boyd flew to Brookings, ran
low on fuel and landed in a
farmer’s pasture near Plankinton
to purchase five dollars of fuel from
the farmer. The farmer may have
thought Boyd was an escapee from
the school for juvenile delinquents
at Plankinton with a story as unbe-
lievable as that, until he saw the
plane sitting in the pasture. The
following summer, the plane was
traded to Cecil Ice for a 135 HP
Super Cub.
“After completing college at
South Dakota State University in
pre-veterinary medicine, Porch was
accepted into Iowa State Univer-
sity, and after receiving his degree,
he set up practice in Murdo, S.D.
“In 1975, Boyd began wheat
farming and realized that it was
not practical to own a Cessna 185
and a four-wheel drive tractor con-
currently. He bought and sold sev-
eral aircraft until 1994 when he
purchased a Piper Pacer from Cecil
Ice. To this day, Boyd and his wife
still travel extensively to attend
Piper conventions and visit chil-
dren, grandchildren and friends.
“Flying has been an important
part of Boyd’s life and he considers
himself fortunate to have flown for
his own veterinary practice. He has
been flying for 53 plus years and
has never had an accident. Boyd is
hoping to fly for many more years.”

Association banquet with his 50-

eral Aviation Administration. It

tribution to building and main-

in the world through practicing
and promoting safe aircraft flight
operations for more than 50 con-
secutive years. --courtesy photos

Church Calendar
James 1:22
Growing in Christ involves far more than just at-
tending church, tithing, and listening to a sermon. In
fact, many believers do these yet remain stagnant in
their walk. There are two elements necessary for us to
become more like Jesus: instruction and involvement.
The first of these, learning truth, is vital to a healthy walk with God. Our Savior proved the importance
of instruction by devoting much of His time on earth to it. The apostle Paul is another example, as he
wrote letters to educate Christians about godliness.
So how can we gain knowledge and understanding? One of the most important and effective ways is
to read the Word of God. Scripture instructs us that just as newborns crave milk, we are to desire His
Word so that we might grow. I pray your spiritual thirst will become insatiable.
Yet simply listening to the truth does not mean that we've acquired it. I know many people who love
attending Bible studies and expanding their knowledge base, but their lives remain unchanged. Just as
today's passage teaches, we have to apply the Word to our lives. Even so, actual growth requires more
than merely inputting information. It requires action. James 2:26 states, "For just as the body without
the spirit is dead, so also faith without works is dead."
Are we careless hearers, deceived into thinking that we're growing? Or are we listening intently and
abiding in the truth? If we're truly maturing, our lives will be increasingly Christlike, and our desires
will align more closely with God's heart. Make sure that you are listening and responding to His truth.

God does not make grandmoth-
ers like He once did. At least not
like MY grandmother. Grand-
mother never trusted such things
as banks with her money. Someone
once told my grandmother, “If you
would put your money in the bank,
they would pay you interest.”
With a confused look on her face
she responded, “I have enough in-
terest in my money, nobody else
needs to bother about it.” That was
that!
After my grandfather died, my
wife and I had the opportunity to
take grandma out for supper. It
was a delightful restaurant and we
thought it would be a real treat for
her. More than once, I had to keep
her from getting up and serving
coffee to the rest of the people in
the restaurant. After all, she did
that at the church suppers. Why
not here. “I’ve got two good legs,”
she protested.
Then came time to pay the
check and the waiter brought the
check and laid it in front of me. I
immediately took a credit card out
of my wallet and laid it on the
check.
I could tell grandma had never
seen a credit card before.
“Put that away,” she said. “I be-
lieve that man wants you to pay
for our supper. Don’t you have any
money?”
“I’m paying for our supper with
my credit card,” I explained.
“Oh, dear,” she moaned. “You
know I don’t believe in cards.
Cards are of the devil, and I have
never had a deck of cards in my
house. I’m a little surprised that
you, a minister, would be fooling
around with such things of the
devil.”
She insisted we tip the waiter in
“good ole American cash.” I am not
sure if grandma ever really under-
stood the credit card. She bought
nothing on credit and did not ac-
cept credit. Everything had to be
done in cash. She often quoted the
scripture verse that says, “Owe no
man any thing . . .” (Romans 13:8
KJV), which she took quite liter-
ally.
As grandma got older, she
began to rethink the business of
opening a bank account. Without
telling anyone, she decided to go to
the bank and open an account. She
had saved up $50 for this purpose.
Grandma nervously entered the
bank and walked up to the man
sitting at the desk marked “New
Accounts.”
“Good morning, Ma’am. I’m
Gary Goodman. How can I help
you today?”
The man seemed pleasant
enough, and grandma thought en-
trusting him with the delicate job
at hand was probably safe.
“I wanna open an account,” she
mumbled.
“Fine. I’ll get you all set up. It
won’t take but a few minutes.”
With that, he took out some papers
and laid them on his desk in front
of grandma.
“Now,” he said, “let’s begin.
What is your name?”
She told him.
In life, an “account at the bank” can be a relative thing
“O.K. What is your address?”
“What?”
“What is your address?”
“Why do you need to know
that?”
“I’m just filling out the form,
Ma’am.”
The young man a little confused
with her hesitancy said, “We can
come back to that. What is your
date of birth?”
Grandma’s face turned a little
red. “What do you want to know
that for,” she gasped?
“I’m just filling out the forms.
Can you give me your telephone
number?”
That did it for grandma. She got
up from her seat and looked him
right in the face and said, “Young
man, I don’t know who you think
you are, but I am not interested in
your advances. I’m old enough to
be your mother. You ought to be
ashamed.”
Just then the manager of the
bank walked by.
“Mary, what are you doing
here?”
The manager quickly assessed
the situation and told the young
man he would take care of this cus-
tomer and tried to console my
grandmother.
“I don’t know what’s gotten into
young folk these days,” she whis-
pered.
Barely concealing his manager
his smile he said, “I’ll take care of
you, Mary,” he assured her. He
knew all the information about her
and quickly filled in the paper
work and walked grandma to the
teller for her first deposit.
Grandma handed the teller a
crumpled $50 bill. The teller took
it and gave her a deposit receipt.
“Where’s my money?” grandma
demanded.
“It’s safe in the bank, Ma’am.”
“How do you know my money
from everyone else’s?”
“The money is all deposited in
the bank, and if you need any, all
you do is write a check.”
She showed grandma how to
write out a check. By now
grandma was confused and more
than a little exasperated. Quickly
grandma wrote out a check for $50
and handed it back to the teller.
“You’re withdrawing all your
money?”
“Yes.”
The teller counted out $50 and
handed it to her. Grandma looked
at the teller and said, “No. I want
MY money.” The teller retrieved
the crumpled $50 bill and handed
it to grandma.
As she walked out, the teller
heard her mumble, “What a crazy
way to run business. No wonder
banks fail.”
There is only one sure account I
can bank on. Jesus said, “Lay not
up for yourselves treasures upon
earth, where moth and rust doth
corrupt, and where thieves break
through and steal: But lay up for
yourselves treasures in heaven,
where neither moth nor rust doth
corrupt, and where thieves do not
break through nor steal:”
(Matthew 6:19-20 KJV).

Healthy Crock Pot Ideas
Long working days combined
with extra activities don’t always
allow us enough time to prepare
tasty, healthy meals when we get
home. Consider preparing meals in
your crock pot (also known as a
slow cooker); it allows you to just
fix it and forget it until meal time.
There are many benefits to
using crock pots. They allow easy,
one-step preparation. Just add the
ingredients and cook. Because the
slow cooker doesn’t allow steam to
escape, the food inside retains
moisture. Ingredients shouldn’t
dry out or burn. Most meat and
vegetable combinations can cook
for 8 to 10 hours without attention.
Another benefit of crock pot cook-
ing is that it can improve the nu-
tritional content of our food. The
outcome of cooking leaner, less ex-
pensive cuts of meat with moist,
long cooking times is very tender
meats and less shrinkage. Skirt
steak, shoulder or leg cuts are ex-
amples of cuts of meat that can
offer a savings on your grocery bill.
A crock pot can be used for a va-
riety of healthy and satisfying
recipes, including soups, pot roasts
or poultry, stews, casseroles, and
desserts. For crock pot recipes that
use condensed soups, plan to use
lower-sodium and lower-fat ver-
sions. Since vegetables cook slower
than meat in the moist heat of the
crock pot, place root vegetables
such as carrots and potatoes (cut
into small pieces of equal size) in
the bottom of the crock pot. Add
tender vegetables like tomatoes
and zucchini during the last 45
minutes of cooking time, so they
don’t overcook. Add more flavor
during the cooking process by
using dried leaf herbs instead of
ground herbs.
Only fill the crock pot half to
two-thirds full. The food will not
cook properly if the appliance is
filled to the brim. Try to resist the
temptation to lift the lid of the
crock pot to peek at your food dur-
ing the cooking process. It is esti-
mated that the temperature drops
10 degrees each time the lid is re-
moved, adding about 20 minutes to
the cooking time, since it takes
that long to recover the tempera-
ture.
As you become more familiar
with crock pot cooking, you will be
able to adapt family favorite meals
to crock pot cooked meals. When
choosing recipes to adapt, choose
recipes that take at least 45 min-
utes to cook; these recipes often in-
clude ingredients that hold up to
long cooking times. To time an
adapted recipe for the crock pot,
estimate 3 to 4 hours on low for
every hour of conventional cook-
ing.
For many busy individuals,
knowing that a healthy meal is
waiting at home helps avoid less-
healthy convenience meals after
work. Obtain tasty, healthy crock

Applications were reviewed for
the highway department positions.
No action was taken since the ap-
plicants did not have any experi-
ence.
At 1:54 p.m. the commissioners
entered into executive session for
personnel matters, with Johnston
present. Afterwards Olney entered
executive session. Olney left execu-
tive and later the commissioners
returned to open session at 2:33
p.m.
Motion carried to accept the res-
ignation of Olney as highway su-
perintendent. A separate motion
carried to advertise the position.
Another motion carried to offer
the highway superintendent posi-
tion to Aaron Richardson on an in-
tern basis at a yearly salary of
$33,000, with a 90-day probation-
ary period.
Discussion was held on whether
Richardson, who currently resides
at Long Valley, would need to live
in the Kadoka area. Denke stated
he would visit with Richardson.
Bennett said he had visited with
the county cell phone provider in-
quiring about a plan that would
best suit the sheriff, deputy sheriff,
highway superintendent and emer-
gency manager. No decision was
made.
The 2013 budget was reviewed.
The extension budget was dis-
cussed and whether the county was
interested in entering into con-
tracts with Jones, Mellette and
Haakon County again. Some coun-
ties have expressed that they are
not in favor of renewing the con-
tract. Stilwell stated that he had
attempted to contact SDSU to find
out when the contract for the four-
county agreement expires, but the
contact person had not returned
his calls.
The commissioners declined a
salary increase for themselves and
their salary will remain at
$6,980.00 per commissioner for
2013.
Motions carried to approve the
adjustments that were made to the
health insurance figures, the ex-
tension budget and commissioners
salaries.

USED VEHICLES!
We had a plague of fruit flies
one day earlier this week. It
started off slowly but built all day
until we were inundated with the
tiny airborne critters. You nor-
mally expect a few insects to get in
through cracks or to sneak in
through doors when you open
them. When a swarm appears in-
side, however, you know you either
have a major breach in your de-
fenses or you have something rot-
ten around that is providing a
breeding ground. Either way, there
is a problem that needs to be ad-
dressed.
Well, when wife Corinne noticed
more fruit flies than usual this
week, our attention was first
drawn to a bag of apples someone
had just given us from their fruit
tree. They were in a plastic bag sit-
ting on top of the freezer. When I
inspected them, one or two flies
were sighted. I took the whole bag
outside and moved one apple at a
time to a clean bag, but there was
just one little rotten spot on one
apple which didn’t seem big
enough to harbor much of any-
thing. Nevertheless, if I let the
fruit sit around very long, it would
attract bugs and cause a problem.
As a result, I spent an hour or two
making a large apple crunch for
later use. I carefully disposed of
the peelings, cores, etc. and waited
to see what would happen.
The apples weren’t the problem.
The flies kept multiplying. I was
making some bread at the time,
and fruit flies adore bread dough.
They came from all around to ei-
ther sit on the dough, my hands, or
the counter. I’m sure I killed two to
three dozen of them, and they still
kept coming. By this time, I was
getting irritated and went on the
war path. Flies were found and
swatted at a goodly rate, and this
did reduce their numbers some-
what. I was aware I hadn’t gotten
to the root of the problem just yet,
but swatting everything in sight
made me feel better.
What worried me was my
knowledge that fruit flies repro-
duce themselves very quickly and
in great abundance. That’s why
they are so popular in the study of
genetics. You don’t have to wait
very long to see what happens
when you mate a green-eyed fly to
a brown eyed or whatever. A fe-
male, you see, may lay up to 400
eggs at a time. Those hatch within
a day, and, slightly over a week
later, the females that hatched can
themselves lay eggs. This is in con-
trast to cattle which take about
two years to reproduce themselves.
A heifer calf needs to grow about a
year before being bred, and gesta-
tion is about nine months which
adds another year. So, it takes al-
most two years to see the results of
your breeding program in cattle
while it only takes a little over a
week with fruit flies.
I once raised some coturnix
quail which weren’t as fast as fruit
flies, but were fairly amazing for
birds. Their eggs only took a bit
over two weeks to hatch, and the
females that were hatched started
laying eggs themselves in about
two months. You could start the
year with five quail and end it with
thousands. Contrast that with ele-
phants which have a gestation pe-
riod of almost two years with
young females not being able to re-
produce until they are teenagers.
Patience would be required to
raise a herd of elephants.
Anyway, after swatting and
thinking all day, it finally occurred
to me in the wee hours of the night
that there was a bag of potatoes in
a cardboard box under a table. As
soon as I remembered that, I knew
I was on the right track. As a re-
sult, I carefully lifted the closed
box and carried it outside. When I
lifted the lid, there was lots of ac-
tivity--flies everywhere. Later in
the day I took that box out onto the
prairie and liberated the rotten po-
tatoes and any larvae they con-
tained. We could live on powdered
potatoes for a few days and keep
all fruit refrigerated.
Yesterday, then, was closer to
normal with only a few of the
pesky flies hovering around my
head. Most of those were swatted
and done away with. Today was
even better. I only saw and killed
one of the nasty critters. In the fu-
ture, potatoes are apt to be high on
my suspect list when fruit flies
start appearing. I also figure I can
get rid of a lot of them if necessary
by rolling out a bit of bread dough
on the counter and waiting nearby
with a swatter in hand. For now,
however, the plague seems to be
over which is quite a relief. The ge-
neticists can keep their silly fruit
flies. I don’t need them.

Lookin’ Around
by Syd Iwan
Mary Johnston just returned
from spending about two weeks in
Minnesota visiting sisters and
other relatives. She mostly stayed
with her sister, Lela, at Milaca,
MN, and visited other people from
there. She visited her brother and
various nieces and nephews around
Ogilvie and her other sister,
Jenene, at Waseca. She was origi-
nally taken to Sioux Falls by her
son, Larry, and picked up by Lela.
On the way back, Lela brought her
to Sioux Falls and her son, Lonny,
picked her up. Mary said Lela still
has about 70 head of horses plus
six stallions. These take a lot of
care and Mary helped with feed
and water, but she didn’t help with
cleaning the barn. The sisters were
originally going to bring Mary all
the way home and stay a bit, but
Jenene got ill before that could
happen so their visit here had to be
postponed.
Larry and Joy Dolezal went to
Belle Fourche last week to visit
their daughter, Carmen Nemec,
and family. Joy said that Scott
Drabek’s wife has a fabric store
there in Belle which Carmen and
she visited. They probably made
Scott’s wife very happy since they
needed quite a bit of cloth for their
quilting efforts, etc.
Aaron, Michelle and Tyrel
Mansfield were visited this week-
end by Michelle’s folks, Bill and
Pauline Jones, from Rapid City.
They have also had Michelle’s
cousin, Tyler, staying with them
some the last week and helping
with the work. He, too, is from
Rapid City. The Mansfields
planned to return to Rapid City
with Bill and Pauline to retrieve a
pickup that’s been there getting re-
paired.
Jim and Fayola Mansfield trav-
eled to Hulett, WY, on Tuesday to
watch their grandson, Thomas,
play in a football game. They took
in another one of his games a week
or two ago and have tentative plans
to head to Wyoming again this
week for another game.
Jim, Georgann and Jami Addi-
son took in the Jones County home-
coming on Friday. Jami goes to
school in Murdo this year and nat-
urally wanted to take it all in. They
also attended the parade, pancake
feed, football game and dance plus
a yard sale. Georgann and Jami
have also spent the last week house
and babysitting for friends who
wanted to go on vacation. On Sun-
day, Georgann went to Wall to get
in a bit of barrel racing. Jami, how-
ever, was tired from her weekend
and decided to stay home and take
a nap.
Jim Addison also reported see-
ing what he termed a “traveling
bike museum.” As he was driving
east from his place near Belvidere
to 1880 Town on the service road,
he passed about 70 or more old or
antique motorcycles that were
making a run from Boston to the
West Coast. Some of these were
World War II vintage and quite in-
teresting to see. One rider even had
a Sears motorcycle, and those
haven’t been made for quite a long
time now. There are problems with
the older machines, of course, and
one fellow had quite a time getting
his started again at 1880 Town but
eventually managed it.
Bunny Green spent several days
in Ft. Pierre this last week. She
went there with her daughter, Dar-
lene Wiedemer, of Murdo and they
stayed with Darlene’s daughter,
Ruthie. Ruthie and family have re-
cently moved from a trailer court
that is too close to the river that
had flooding problems. Now they
are on higher ground with a good
view of a grove of trees and other
pretty areas. The gals did some
shopping before returning to
Murdo where, unfortunately,
Bunny entertained the flu or some
such illness for a couple of days.
She said she was “sick as a dog”
and couldn’t stay warm no matter
how many sweaters and blankets
she used. She did, despite not feel-
ing well, help cut up and freeze
about 40 pounds of Colorado
peaches. On Sunday, Darlene
brought Bunny back home, and
Bunny said she was feeling pretty
good by then. Bunny said she had
quite a good time except for when
she didn’t feel well.
Betty Kusick was visited on
Sunday by her daughter, Loretta
Schreiber, and her husband,
Lawrence, of Quinn. The visitors
brought dinner with them. They
also brought Betty a new cell
phone. They figured she goes fish-
ing often enough that it would be
good to have a way for her to call
for help if she needed it. They gave
Betty instruction on how to use the
new phone which Betty hopes will
help her use it okay. Betty also said
her son, Kenny, recently caught a
fish that was of a kind he wasn’t fa-
miliar with. He hoped it wasn’t a
piranha like someone else had
caught in a local dam which raised
questions as to how on earth it ever
got there. Anyway, Kenny took pic-
tures of the unknown fish and
hopes he can figure out what it was
eventually. Kenny has since re-
ported that the fish was a Euro-
pean Rudd.
Jo and Jory Rodgers were polic-
ing the area around JR’s on Sun-
day. Jo said that people exiting the
freeway there seem inclined to
throw out plastic bottles and other
trash to the extent that it needs to
be cleaned up every week or two.
They had a small wagon full of
trash they’d already picked up.
prairie. The St. John Lutheran
Church at Norris is a branch of
that church. As you travel down SD
Highway 63 east of town you will
pass the Emmanuel Cemetery be-
side where the old church stood.
The story won over all 107 cultural
arts items entered from the differ-
ent extension districts in the state.
At the state extension conven-
tion the Norris Extension Club was
also given special recognition for
the amount of reading they do.
Jean Kary was also recognized for
writing her 50,000-word novel in
one month project.
Audra Baldwin visited Maxine
Allard on Thursday and picked up
some things Maxine had saved for
her. That afternoon Ken Koistenen
of Pierre visited Maxine and
checked on his trail cameras he has
out there. It is so dry that folks are
telling of the variety of wild life
coming to the watering holes. That
would make a trail camera real fun
to have.
Friday morning Ed and Carol
Ferguson went to Rapid City to at-
tend the celebration of life for Ed’s
cousin, John Parke, who passed
away on September 11.
Saturday, Christine Dunham
hosted a baby shower at the Norris
Township Hall. The shower was for
Jarrod and Lacey Dunham’s baby,
who is expected to arrive in Decem-
ber. Jarrod and Lacey were unable
to attend because he didn’t get
enough leave to come to South
Dakota. Jarrod is serving in the
United States Army and is sta-
tioned in Fort Hood, TX. Jarrod got
tickets to a Dallas Cowboys game
so Travis and Mandy WoodenKnife
are planning to deliver the gifts to
them and go to the game.
James and Marjorie traveled to
Faith on Saturday for the 50 year
reunion of her 1962 class. Nine
members of the class gathered at
the St. Joseph Catholic Church
Fellowship Hall in the afternoon
for lots of reminiscing and fun and
then attended the banquet at the
school gym that evening. This was
held for the classes ending in two.
They also enjoyed a tour of the
beautiful new school. One of Mar-
jorie’s classmates and best friends
still teachs there. We discovered
that they can still hear the super-
intendent coming down the hall
(like they could in the old school) so
some things really haven’t
changed. It was a very enjoyable
time for of us who gathered that
day and we vowed to do it again
soon.

The South Central Master Gar-
deners Club was well represented
at the State Master Gardeners Up-
date held in Brookings over the
weekend. The gals enjoyed semi-
nars, meetings and a banquet be-
fore returning home on Sunday
evening.
Those attending from the area
were: Donita Denke of Long Valley,
JoAnn Letellier of Norris, Noma
Sazma of Valentine, Ila Tucker of
Wood, Donna Adrian, Jeannine
Woodard and Rose West of White
River, LuAnne Noeske of Pierre
and Pat Neilsen and Mabel
Schmid of Winner. JoAnn Letel-
lier was surprised to be one of the
ten Master Gardeners receiving a
gold star badge. Congratulations!
Robert and Sharon Ring were in
the Black Hills for appointments
on Thursday and Friday and were
overnight guests of their daughter,
Deb, in Spearfish. Robert, Sharon
and Deb Ring were among the
crowd attending the beautiful wed-
ding of Courtney Totton and Jeff
Tyrell in Chamberlain on Saturday
afternoon. Erna and Linda Totton
of Pierre also attended the wedding
and then traveled on to Parker to
visit Gert Ring who is moving to
Texas to be near her daughter,
Judy, and family.
Saturday afternoon Evan and
Dorothy Bligh headed to Rapid
City to attend the Rapid City
Cathedral’s 50th high school re-
union supper for the class of 1962
at the Canyon Lake Chophouse.
Dorothy enjoyed getting reac-
quainted with some of the folks she
hadn’t seen for 50 years.
Sunday afternoon visitors at the
Gale Letellier home and touring
the yard were Dennis and Sena
Lauritsen and Ron and Cora Look-
abill of Wood.
Have a great week.
The bee who gets the honey
doesn’t hang around the hive.
Approximately 75 people turned
out to tour the beautiful yard at the
Gale Letellier home on Saturday,
September 8. JoAnn also served a
delicious dinner to the 30 Master
Gardeners from all over the state
before the tour. Folks attended the
yard show from Rapid City, Her-
mosa, Pierre, Martin, White River,
Kadoka, Long Valley, Philip, Mid-
land, and of course, Norris. Among
the Master Gardeners attending
were Doug Hesnard and his
mother and sister of Hermosa.
They are distant relatives of Gale’s
on his mother’s side. Doug’s mom
remembered being in the house 64
years ago!
A week ago on Sunday, LuAnne
Beckwith took Maxine Allard home
from church and enjoyed a good
visit with her former teacher.
Marjorie Popkes, Carol Fergu-
son and Irene Kaufman were in
Valentine, NE, on Tuesday to final-
ize arrangements for Irene’s new
apartment there.
With the help of Howard, Nette,
Beau, and Chris Heinert and Ed,
Carol, and Jesse Ferguson, most of
Irene Kaufman’s larger furniture
was packed up and loaded on Fri-
day evening. Early Saturday morn-
ing, with Ed and Carol bringing the
loaded the horse trailer, Jesse driv-
ing another pickup load, and Irene
in her weighted-down car, the
group completed the final leg of the
process. Others helping to unload
and set up were Pete and Marla
Ferguson and Gene and Marjorie
Popkes. We wish Irene the best,
but can’t help but feel the absence
of another fine citizen in our tiny
community. I am sure Norris will
always be a part of Irene because
she sure was a part of Norris for
many years.
Tuesday lunch guests at the
home of Gale Letellier were Mel
and Tammy Glover of Rapid City.
They enjoyed touring the yard
since they couldn’t make it last Sat-
urday.
The James Letelliers went to
Pierre on Tuesday and visited in
the Paul Beckwith home. They ac-
companied the Beckwiths to the
volleyball game at Sunshine Bible
Academy against White Lake that
evening. Their granddaughter,
Cassie Beckwith, is a sophomore
on the team. The best part of the
whole trip was driving home in
rain, all the way home from Murdo.
We heard reports here at Norris of
folks receiving from over an half an
inch to three quarters of moisture
that evening. Thank you, Lord.
Gale and JoAnn Letellier at-
tended the visitation for Leila Dith-
mer, 92, in Kadoka on Tuesday
evening. This area certainly lost
another one of our outstanding
gals. She was quite a lady. Our
hearts go out to her family. May the
Lord comfort your hearts at this
sad time of loss.
June Ring went to Winner and
met up with Ethel Evans and
Donna Duffy. The ladies traveled
on to Aberdeen for the Extension
Club CFEL convention held on Fri-
day and Saturday. The state cul-
tural arts contest is held during the
convention. June was thrilled to re-
port that she won the judges’ choice
award for her story on the old Em-
manuel Lutheran Church. June
wrote the story for the South
Dakota History Conference last
year. It tells the story of the folks
building the sod church out on the

To control mice and prevent
Hantavirus infection:
Seal gaps around roofs, attics,
basements, windows, doors, foun-
dations, vents, air conditioners,
under sinks and other pipes.
Set traps where you find mice,
nesting materials, urine or drop-
pings.
Wear rubber or plastic gloves to
clean up dead mice or their drop-
pings.
Spray dead mice, urine or drop-
pings with a disinfectant or a mix-
ture of 1½ cups household bleach
and one gallon of water. Soak for
five minutes, wipe up with a paper
towel and put everything in a plas-
tic bag and seal. Put in a second
bag and seal that as well.
Clean the area with a disinfec-
tant or bleach solution. Don't use
vacuum cleaners or brooms, since
they can create aerosols. Wash
gloved hands with soap and water
and wash again after taking off
gloves.
Keep your house and yard free of
junk and rubbish to limit food
sources and nesting sites for mice.
Use thick plastic or metal contain-
ers with tight lids for garbage and
for storing pet food.

South Dakotans should be
aware of the risk of Hantavirus as
temperatures cool off and rodents
move indoors, says a state health
official.
Hantavirus is caused by a virus
carried by rodents. It can result in
Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome,
which fills the lungs with fluid and
can lead to respiratory failure.
Deer mice are the primary carriers
of the virus that causes the disease.
“Routine rodent control meas-
ures are particularly important
this time of year as rodents look to
move inside,” said Dr. Lon
Kightlinger, State Epidemiologist
for the Department of Health. “The
risk for Hantavirus is statewide
and year round. It can happen
wherever there are rodent-infested
buildings.”
People get infected when they
breathe in aerosolized virus from
the droppings, urine or saliva of
mice. Symptoms usually appear
within two to four weeks of expo-
sure and include fatigue, a fever of
101-104°, muscle aches, cough,
vomiting and diarrhea. Seek med-
ical care immediately if you have
fever, deep muscle aches, and se-
vere shortness of breath after expo-
sure to mice.
South Dakota has reported 15
cases of Hantavirus and five deaths
since 1993 when the disease was
first detected, including one death
earlier this year. More than 570
cases have been reported in the
U.S. since 1993, including a cluster
of nine cases this summer at

fense stiffened one more time so
the game finished with a final score
of 28-7.
This week we clicked really well
offensively as we probably played
our best game of the year to this
point. Chandlier Sudbeck had an
amazing night running the ball.
He carried it 20 times for 152 yards
and 2 touchdowns, with one 2-point
conversion. Our offensive line led
by Clint Stout at center along with
Gavin DeVries, Herbie O’Daniel,
Logan Christensen and Logan Am-
mons, once again did a really nice
job as they opened up a lot of holes
for our running backs. Kenar Van-
derMay had 16 carries for 48 yards,
Logan Christensen had 2 carries
for 21 yards, Chance Knutson had
6 carries for 5 yards and Klay O’-
Daniel had 1 carry for 2 yards.
Our passing game was pretty ef-
fective this week. Kenar was 9-14
for 75 yards and 2 touchdowns and
one 2-point conversion. Receiving
wise, Logan Christensen had 4
catches for 35 yards and 2 touch-
downs. Logan Ammons had 3
catches for 33 yards with one 2-
point conversion and Chandlier
Sudbeck had 2 catches for 7 yards.
The defense this week was led
once again by Clint Stout as he
recorded a game high 15 tackles
and he also had one interception.
Other defensive stats include
Kenar VanderMay with 14 tackles,
Logan Christensen had 9, Sam
Pretty Bear 8, Logan Ammons 7,
Chance Knutson 5, Klay O’Daniel
and Chris Anderson each had 4,
Lane Patterson 3, Chandlier Sud-
beck 2, and Dylan Riggins and Her-
bie O’Daniel each had 1. Chris
Anderson recorded 2 big sacks, and
True Buchholz and Logan Chris-
tensen also each recorded 1 sack as
well.
The boys did a really good job
this week. We took care of the ball,
we tackled well, we blocked well,
and we feel like if we do those three
things right we’re going to give our-
selves a good chance to win. We
haven’t beaten Wall in a few years,
and we haven’t beaten them in
Wall for a long time, so this was a
special win for our team.
Once again this week doesn’t get
any easier as a very experienced
Jones County team comes to town
to play us for our 2012 homecoming
football game. Jones County has
played some really tough games so
far this year as they squeaked by
Philip and lost to White River and
Colome. They’ve got a team full of
experience and talent and will pose
as a huge challenge for us this
week. Look for it to be another
great night of football in Kadoka!
Game time this week is at 6:30
p.m. Hope to see you all there!
Kadoka Area 28
Wall 7
The Kougars traveled to Wall
last Friday to take on the Eagles in
another tough conference game.
This was a hard-fought game and
the Kougars were able to bring
home another win as we defeated
the Eagles 28-7.
The game began with the Eagles
starting off the scoring as they
went ahead 7-0 early in the first
quarter. Later in the quarter we
answered with our own touchdown
as Chandlier Sudbeck ran in from
7 yards out to make the score 7-6.
In the second quarter we scored
one more time as Chandlier Sud-
beck ran in for a second touchdown,
this time from 50 yards out. He
also was able to run in and convert
the 2-point conversion to put us up
14-7, which is where it stayed until
the third quarter.
Our defense continued to stifle
Wall’s running and passing game
in the second half as we were able
to pitch a second half shut out on a
football team that has a lot of speed
with a couple of very talented run-
ning backs. We held Wall to only
112 yards on the ground and 69
yards passing. As much speed as
they have on the field, this stats
alone speaks volumes about our de-
fensive effort.
The third quarter we were able
to put more points on the board as
Kenar VanderMay hooked up with
Logan Christensen on a 25 yard
pass play, and Kenar hooked up
with Logan Ammons for the two-
point conversion to put us up 22-7
in the third quarter. With about six
minutes to go in the game Kenar
hooked up one more time with
Logan Christensen on a 5 yard
pass to make the score 28-7. The
Eagles threatened to score toward
the end of the game, but our de-
Kadoka Kougars meet Wall Eagles
head on, claims 28-7 victory
and 5 blocks; Kwincy Ferguson had
6 kills. Taylor Merchen and Tessa
Stout combined for 11 set assists.
Mariah Pierce had 5 digs and
Raven Jorgensen added 4 more.
The girls fought hard and played
well against a strong Faith team
that was in the state tournament
last year. We got off to a good start
winning the first set, but Faith
raised their level of play and really
started attacking well. We just
couldn't match it.
Kadoka is now 7-6 on the year
and the varsity and junior varsity
teams will travel to White River on
Thursday, September 19, for a tri-
angular with White River and Pine
Ridge.
Kadoka JV defeated Faith JV
25-21, 26-24.
This was a great examle of true
teamwork and ball control. The
girls played very well and came
from behind in the second set to
win.
Thursday, September 13
Kadoka defeated New Under-
wood 25-18, 25-20, 25-12.
Marti Herber, Tessa Stout,
Kwincy Ferguson and Raven Jor-
gensen combined for 49/49 serving
with 32 service points and 9 aces.
Kwincy Ferguson and Raven Jor-
gensen each had 9 kills and Shaley
Herber added 7. Tessa Stout and
Taylor Merchen combined for 20
set assists. Mariah Pierce had 3
digs.
Kadoka JV defeated New Un-
derwood JV 25-20, 25-21.
Tori Letellier and Shelby Uhlir
both had a nice game attacking the
ball and added some nice kills. De-
fensivley, Destiny Dale and Allie
Romero did a nice job.
Saturday, September 15
Faith defeated Kadoka 21-25,
25-19, 25-16, 25-19.
Mariah Pierce and Tessa Stout
combined for 19 service points and
2 aces. Raven Jorgensen had 9 kills
Volleyball team 7-6
The Lady Kougar “C” team lost
a three-set match with New Under-
wood on Thursday night.
We came out strong the first set
and won 25-17. Kassie Hicks
served well in this match for the
team.
The next set, the Lady Kougars
fell behind quickly and could not
recover. Even though Miranda
Dale was able to serve 8 straight
points, the lead was just too big to
overcome. We lost that set 19-25. In
the 3rd set, we lost 6-15. We have
shown an improvement over the
season.
We are working hard at commu-
nicating on the court and making
better passes. Our serving has also
improved in the past couple of
weeks.
Our next match is September 25
against Bennett County.

of the
Week
Chandlier Sudbeck
Football
Chandlier is a tremendous leader.
He works very hard in the off sea-
son, lifting weights, wrestling, run-
ning and doing whatever he can to
be better. In the big win over Wall
he carried the ball 20 times for 152
yards and 2 touchdowns and one
2-point conversion. Chandlier has
carried the ball 58 times for 450
yards and scored 5 touchdowns,
and he’s also had 1 touchdown re-
ceiving so far this year. He’s aver-
aging 7.8 yards per carry. Chandlier
is a good student, a great kid and
he’s very deserving of this honor.
Tessa Stout

In our two matches against New
Underwood and Faith this past
week Tessa served 31/32 with 16
points and 2 aces, had 18 set as-
sists, and added 2 kills and a 1

Whether you’re a recent high
school graduate going to college for
the first time or a returning stu-
dent, it will soon be time to head to
campus, and payment deadlines for
tuition and other fees are not far
behind.
The IRS offers some tips about
education tax benefits that can
help offset some college costs for
students and parents. Typically,
these benefits apply to you, your
spouse or a dependent for whom
you claim an exemption on your tax
return.
•American Opportunity Credit.
This credit, originally created
under the American Recovery and
Reinvestment Act, is still available
for 2012. The credit can be up to
$2,500 per eligible student and is
available for the first four years of
post secondary education at an eli-
gible institution. Forty percent of
this credit is refundable, which
means that you may be able to re-
ceive up to $1,000, even if you don't
owe any taxes. Qualified expenses
include tuition and fees, course re-
lated books, supplies and equip-
ment.
•Lifetime Learning Credit. In
2012, you may be able to claim a
Lifetime Learning Credit of up to
$2,000 for qualified education ex-
penses paid for a student enrolled
in eligible educational institutions.
There is no limit on the number of
years you can claim the Lifetime
Learning Credit for an eligible stu-
dent.
You can claim only one type of
education credit per student in the
same tax year. However, if you pay
college expenses for more than one
student in the same year, you can
choose to take credits on a per-stu-
dent, per-year basis. For example,
you can claim the American Oppor-
tunity Credit for one student and
the Lifetime Learning Credit for
the other student.
•Student loan interest deduc-
tion. Generally, personal interest
you pay, other than certain mort-
gage interest, is not deductible.
However, you may be able to
deduct interest paid on a qualified
student loan during the year. It can
reduce the amount of your income
subject to tax by up to $2,500, even
if you don’t itemize deductions.
These education benefits are
subject to income limitations, and
may be reduced or eliminated de-
pending on your income. For more
information, visit the Tax Benefits
for Education Information Center
at IRS.gov or check out Publication
970, Tax Benefits for Education,
which can be downloaded at
IRS.gov or ordered by calling 800-

towns and rural communities.
USDA could continue to modernize
water and electric utilities for mil-
lions of Americans, expand broad-
band access, and help rural
businesses grow. And it would give
us tools to continue expanding the
production of advanced biofuels
and biobased manufacturing, cre-
ating more good jobs that can’t be
shipped overseas.
It would allow USDA to continue
the groundbreaking agricultural
research that’s ongoing today, both
here and at universities across
America – important research the
likes of which helps agriculture
through tough times such as the
current drought.
A Food, Farm and Jobs Bill
would enhance USDA conservation
efforts, ensuring that vital conser-
vation programs that enable rural
Americans to protect the land and
water don’t expire.
It would enable USDA to con-
tinue helping millions of American
families – folks who are working
hard, playing by the rules, but still
having trouble making ends meet –
to provide food for their children.
And if Congress acts, we’ll be
able to continue our efforts to en-
sure the safest food supply on
earth.
As America recovers from eco-
nomic recession, rural Americans
are leading the way and USDA is
supporting their efforts. It’s not
time to let up now, and that’s why
we need Congress to pass a Food,
Farm and Jobs Bill as soon as pos-
sible.
--Agriculture Secretary Vilsack
After spending much of August
out of Washington, Congress is
back – and rural America is watch-
ing closely, hoping for passage of a
Food, Farm and Jobs Bill as soon
as possible.
With farmers facing the worst
drought in decades this summer
and the current Farm Bill set to ex-
pire on September 30 of this year,
time is running out for Congress to
act.
You and I both know the stakes
couldn’t be higher.
Since early this summer, when
the Senate passed a comprehen-
sive, multi-year Food Farm and
Jobs Act, the Administration has
expressed its preference for such
comprehensive legislation and
urged Congress to act before the
current law expires.
Let me tell you why:
A comprehensive, multiyear
Food, Farm and Jobs Bill would en-
sure a strong safety net for our pro-
ducers. This includes disaster
assistance for those who have been
impacted by the drought – espe-
cially by providing help for live-
stock and specialty crop producers
and providing a new support sys-
tem for dairy producers.
Just as important, a new multi-
year bill would ensure certainty for
all farmers and ranchers in the
coming years.
It would help USDA to continue
growing agricultural trade. We’re
in the four best years for agricul-
tural exports in our history, and we
can’t afford to stop now.
It would enable USDA to con-
tinue the record investments we’ve
made since 2009 in America’s small
A food, farm and jobs bill
as soon as possible
For the last couple of months,
many marketing advisors have ad-
vocated the use of put options to es-
tablish a minimum selling price for
corn and soybeans, says Darrell
Mark, Ph.D., Adjunct Professor of
Economics at South Dakota State
University.
"This marketing strategy has
advantages and disadvantages, but
one of the most appealing advan-
tages is that it protects a minimum
selling price while allowing the
hedger to benefit from price in-
creases," Mark said during a recent
iGrow Radio Network interview.
He says one of the strategies
now being discussed by marketing
advisors and considered by produc-
ers in light of the continued price
rally is whether to "roll" these put
options to a higher strike price.
"Rolling to a higher strike price
creates higher minimum sale price.
The mechanics of the roll are ac-
complished by offsetting, or selling,
the put option that was originally
purchased and buying a put option
in the same month with a higher
strike price," Mark said.
He shares an example to explain
how this works:
Suppose that on July 20, 2012, a
corn producer decided to purchase
a $7.00/bu December 2012 corn put
option, thinking that the corn mar-
ket was reaching a high. At that
time, the cost, or premium, for that
put option would have been
$0.30/bu. If the commission costs
for trading this option totaled
$0.02/bu and the producer expected
the basis to be -$0.40/bu, then the
minimum expected sale price
(MESP) would be $6.28/bu.
If December futures prices trade
below $7/bu, then the put option
gains intrinsic value and offsets
the lower cash market price for the
corn (although basis risk is still
present).
If December corn futures go
higher, then the put premium de-
clines but the cash grain is sold for
a higher price, but the most money
that could be lost by owning the
put would be the total premium
paid. It would be possible for the
option to be worth a small amount
sometime before the put expires;
however, if December futures are
above $7/bu when the option ex-
pires, the option premium would be
virtually worthless if held until ex-
piration.
While the producer might have
thought that December corn fu-
tures were setting a high back on
July 20 and decided to initiate this
put option hedge and establish a
MESP of $6.28/bu, it turns out that
crop conditions worsened and the
corn market has went up about
$0.20/bu through the third week of
August. Even though the put op-
tion is worth much less now, this
isn't necessarily a bad thing for the
producer. In this case, the cash
corn can be sold for a higher price
and, assuming that the producer
didn't hedge 100% of production, a
higher overall price is realized for
the crop.
"Basically, it is somewhat like
having auto or life insurance and
not using it," Mark said.
Another way though that the
producer could take advantage of
the price increase would be to roll
the option up to a higher strike
price and increase the MESP. By
August 23, the $7/bu December
2012 put option was trading for
about $0.10/bu, meaning that the
put that is currently being held
could be sold back for $0.10/bu.
This would mean that this put op-
tion trade would have lost
$0.20/bu, plus commission. How-
ever, the $0.10/bu is being recap-
tured (of the original $0.30/bu
premium) and can be put towards
the purchase of another put with a
higher strike price. In fact, the
$8/bu December 2012 corn put op-
tion was trading for about $0.40/bu
on August 23. If the option position
was rolled from the $7/bu strike
price to the $8/bu strike price on
August 23, the MESP would in-
crease to 6.96/bu.
Now, the producer has a floor
selling price of nearly $7/bu for a
total net premium cost of $0.60 and
$0.04/bu commission. Before
rolling, the floor price was $6.28/bu
at a total cost of $0.32/bu.
Is it worth it?
"It depends on the producer's
risk tolerance and market outlook,"
Mark said. "For a producer with a
relatively bearish outlook on the
corn market price during harvest
this year and who is quite risk
averse, this might be a good strat-
egy to consider. For a bullish pro-
ducer that is willing to have price
protection that is deep out-of-the-
money, doing so might not be nec-
essary. Either producer, though,
should consider what his/her goals
really are for marketing. If the put
option hedge was originally de-
signed to protect a floor price that
would insure a profitable price
(above breakeven), then rolling to a
higher strike price is only adding to
hedged profit - which is always
nice, but may not be necessary for
some producers given the cost,"
Mark said.
He explains that should the
market continue higher, the option
could be rolled higher yet again by
offsetting the owned put and pur-
chasing one with a higher strike
price.
"The only time you wouldn't
want to do this is when the under-
lying futures price does not in-
crease more than the net option

stories of real South Dakotans
struggling from the uncertainty
coming out of Washington.
One couple from Houghton is es-
pecially concerned about long-term
agriculture policy, because they’re
hoping to pass their farming oper-
ation on to their three sons. An-
other couple wants to make
planting decisions for their farming
and ranching operation in Wall,
but without a Farm Bill, they have
less certainty about what the fu-
ture holds for them. It is not right
to leave these and other hard work-
ing Americans without certainty
because too many in Washington
don’t think getting a Farm Bill
done is important enough right
now.
The Farm Bill expires at the end
of this month. Getting a new one
done is a top priority for me, and it
should be a top priority for this
Congress. Our farmers and ranch-
ers deserve certainty, and I will
keep fighting every day to make
sure they get it. From holding lead-
ership’s feet to the fire to schedule
a vote, to gathering signatures for
the discharge petition and continu-
ing to educate other Members, I
will not stop working to get a Farm
Bill done for South Dakota.
--by Rep. Kristi Noem
South Dakotans continue to
struggle though one of the worst
droughts in decades, but Washing-
ton, D.C. continues to stall on a
Farm Bill. I’m fed up with Wash-
ington excuses. We need to get a
Farm Bill done now, and that’s why
I’m helping lead the effort to force
a vote on this important legisla-
tion.
I recently signed a petition that
would force a vote on the Farm Bill
if 218 House members sign it. I was
the first Republican to do so and I
am encouraging my colleagues on
both sides of the aisle to do the
same. I am also working to educate
other members on just how impor-
tant a Farm Bill is to every Ameri-
can that wants to put affordable
food on the table.
At a “Farm Bill Now” rally on
Capitol Hill, I was one of four con-
gressional speakers to discuss the
importance of a Farm Bill. In front
of hundreds of farmers and ranch-
ers from across the nation, includ-
ing many from South Dakota, I
highlighted the critical role a Farm
Bill plays not just to rural
economies, but to our nation’s food
supply and national security. If the
logical “field to table” argument
doesn’t work on some, I’m also tak-
ing to the House floor to tell the
Fighting for a Farm Bill

Insuring Winter Wheat
for 2013
Winter wheat insurance and
marketing decisions are setting up
differently for the 2013 crop. The
deadline to purchase or change
winter wheat coverage is Septem-
ber 30 in South Dakota. Most
wheat is insured in the state, so
the choice this time of year is often
related to the yield election level.
Producers have until October 15 to
plant winter wheat with full insur-
ance coverage.
The current price discovery pe-
riod ran from August 15 to Sep-
tember 14 and used the Kansas
City September 2013 futures price.
That price averaged $8.77 per
bushel (not official until Monday,
September 17), which is slightly
higher than the insurance prices
from a year ago. The projected
price determines the base for both
yield protection and revenue pro-
tection coverage. Over 90% of
wheat acres in South Dakota in
2011 and 2012 were covered by
revenue protection.
The volatility in the futures
price has been lower this year than
its five-year average. The lower
volatility and slightly higher price
level will combine to make insur-
ance premiums lower than last
year. During 2012 most wheat was
insured at the 70% and 65% levels.
With lower premium rates for
2013 producers may consider in-
creasing the coverage percentage.
The use of revenue protection
means that most producers have
adequate protection to allow some
pre-harvest marketing of wheat.
In the event of higher prices by
harvest, revenue protection cover-
age increases. As producers work
on their marketing plans they
should keep in mind that the in-
surance coverage is not unlimited,
being capped at 200% of the base
price. Covered sales, buying out-of-
the-money call options, would be
advised when marketing aggres-
sively.
Producers should also consider the
harvest time basis and how it lines
up with insurance. Winter wheat
insurance settles to the average
during July 2013 of the Kansas
City September 2013 contract. The
basis, figured as the cash price re-
ceived by farmers in South Dakota
minus the average futures price in
July, has averaged $-0.71 per
bushel during the past five years.
Hedges will likely be most effec-
tively placed using the September
contract and factoring in a similar
basis level.

At the recent R-CALF USA Con-
vention, nearly 200 attendees met
to discuss the future of the inde-
pendent U.S. cattle industry and
Rural America, and what can be
done to change the current direc-
tion of public policy. Each of R-
CALF USA's committees addressed
the general session and then met in
smaller development sessions to
encourage the generation of solu-
tions to specific challenges the U.S.
cattle industry is facing. The meet-
ings were focused around the
theme, "Redirecting Our Industry."
In addition to updates from the
committees, R-CALF USA also wel-
comed several guest speakers. Ken
Ivory from Utah Freedom Founda-
tion addressed the audience during
the Private Property Rights Com-
mittee Report. During the Market-
ing Committee Report, J. Dudley
Butler, former GIPSA* Administra-
tor, shared his work and struggle
for the GIPSA rule and discussed
checkoff reform and country-of-
origin labeling (COOL).
COOL was an important issue
during the convention. Joel Joseph,
Chairman of Made in the USA
Foundation, and Julie Reiser, Pres-
ident/Co-Founder Made in the USA
Certified, partnered with Mike
Schultz, R-CALF USA Region VI
Director and COOL Committee
Chair, to discuss the recent World
Trade Organization (WTO) ruling
that attempts to strike-down U.S.
COOL. This partnership and dis-
cussion led to the solution of filing
a joint lawsuit to protect U.S. sov-
ereignty. Immediately following the
convention, R-CALF USA joined
with Made in the USA Foundation
and filed a lawsuit in federal dis-
trict court to preserve COOL and
protect U.S. sovereignty.
Coalition for a Prosperous Amer-
ica (CPA) Board Member Dave
Frengel was the featured speaker
on trade. He discussed how domes-
tic manufacturers, farmers, ranch-
ers and workers had joined
together to formulate the white
paper, 21st Century Trade Princi-
ples, that is now being circulated in
Congress. Frengel also led two
breakout sessions providing a more
interactive platform to discuss key
trade issues.
According to R-CALF USA Re-
gion XII Director / Vice President,
and Convention Emcee, Joel Gill,
"There is no way to express the
spirit of camaraderie that existed
throughout the entire convention
and was ultimately expressed on
the final evening by the sacrifice of
Nick Trask during the fund raiser.
"Many thanks to our sponsors
and exhibitors, but most of all,
thanks to our supporting members.
If you were able to come, you lived
the story, if not, make plans to be
there next year in Pierre, S.D. Aug.
2-3. It takes every one of us to
make an impact, but what an im-
pact it is when we all work to-
gether," concluded Gill.
R-CALF USA's Convention:
Catalyst for Change
Annual August pheasant brood
counts in South Dakota indicate
that the statewide pheasant popu-
lation is up from last year, and that
should equate to an excellent
pheasant season this fall.
Results of the survey show that
pheasant numbers grew in many
areas of the state, due in large part
to a mild winter and ideal weather
during the nesting and brood-rear-
ing season.
The pheasants-per-mile index
for 2012 is 4.21, up 18 percent from
the 3.57 index of 2011.
"The mild winter of 2011-12 was
the boost we needed for pheasant
survival and reproductive poten-
tial," explained Jeff Vonk, secretary
of the South Dakota Department of
Game, Fish and Parks. "It goes to
show that, with the combination of
good habitat and the right weather
conditions, pheasants can be quite
prolific.”
Much of the improvement in the
pheasant counts came from areas
of the state that had a good habitat
base.
"Pheasant hunting will be good
across most of the state, with the
traditional pheasant range once
again providing excellent hunting
opportunities,” Vonk said. “More
than 1.5 million pheasants were
harvested last year, and our counts
indicate that this year will be an-
other exceptional year for pheasant
hunting in South Dakota.”
Gov. Dennis Daugaard said the
pheasant survey is good news for
the state.
“Pheasant hunting is important
to the economic well-being of South
Dakota, and it also helps support
the strong outdoor heritage of our
state,” the Governor said.

vey Report, complete with compar-
isons for the different local areas,
