City council sets bid projects
Robyn Jones Decisions on releasing bids for hail damage repairs and allocating funds for economic development were the major topics at the Kadoka City Council meeting. Details of the damage received to city property from the hail storm on June 30 were discussed at the meeting on Monday, September 9. The insurance claim totals $250,405.19 for the repairs of 17 structures. “Repairing seventeen different structures is a lot of work and it would be nice to keep it repairs local if possible,” said Councilperson Colby Shuck. The repairs must be offered through sealed bids. The council felt if it was offered in several smaller bid packages, local contractors could bid the projects. Separating the projects into seven bid projects, according to the size of the repairs, was approved. Jo Beth Uhlir addressed the council on behalf of Jackson-Kadoka Economic Development Corporation. “We want to thank you for including us in your budget,” said Uhlir. Finance Officer Patty Ulmen stated that the request for the $5,000 in support was not included in the budget and the budget is final. Uhlir stated that when economic development attended the meeting in June to request funding, their hopes were to be in the budget so the funds were allocated, which would allow them to apply for a matching funds grant in the amount of $5,000. “During the budget meeting, when we were going over each section, I asked the council if there were any changes or additions. There were none expressed,” said Mayor Harry Weller. “But come January, we will consider contributing $5,000 through an appropriation supplemental budget.” Councilperson Brad Jorgensen stated he was not in favor of obtaining the matching fund grant. “When you’re dealing with the government, there are always certain conditions attached to it and this is what started the comprehensive plan and zoning,” said Jorgensen, “and I do not agree with those.” Shuck stated, “On a business level and opening a new business, the economic corporation has provided a great deal of help to us.” “I’m glad they help locally, I just don’t agree with zoning regulations,” replied Jorgensen. Drainage along Poplar Street was discussed during the street report. “We cleaned out the ditch, but with settling, there is only about a four-inch drop from one side to the other, which means it is about level and water will stand,” said Street Superintendent Patrick Solon, “but now that it’s been cleaned out it should drain better.” The manhole by the swimming pool, along Poplar Street, recently caved in and once the new one arrives, it will be repaired. A city resident expressed appreciation to the city for working with Walton’s so they could clean up their property, but also noted how nice it would be if the city would clean up the vacant building on the former Scholl property. “Years ago that was going to be the warming house when there was an ice skating rink there, but it was never used,” said Weller. The council agreed that the building should be torn down and instructed Solon to proceed. Work in the auditorium continues. The new lights are scheduled to be installed between the volleyball and basketball season. Doors will soon be installed on the showers in the locker rooms. Spraying for mosquitos has been done twice, and plans are to spray again. The City of Philip does the spraying and they are waiting for parts to repair sprayer. Once the sprayer is repaired, they will be over to spray. The council ended their meeting with an executive session for perRobyn Jones sonnel matters, which no action The man hole along Poplar Street that recently caved in will was taken. be replaced.

Kudos & Concerns
summer heat. They mostly lived in their basements. Basements, as you probably know, stay cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter due to being well insulated by the dirt that surrounds them outside. Both families that routinely lived in their basements had upper stories that could be used but seldom were. They had kitchen appliances and sinks both in the basement and on the next floor up. The second generation tended to move upstairs and install air conditioners, but the older set was completely content with living in their basements and saw no real need for change. As a kid, I hung out in our basement quite a bit on hot summer days. We had a bed and chairs down there although no kitchen equipment. There was also a good supply of books and magazines. Sometimes my dog joined me in enjoying the coolness when I thought she was panting too much and getting too warm outside. She learned fairly quickly that it was nicer downstairs than outside on hot days and was glad to keep me company. So, there you have the saga of air conditioners and capacitors. With fall and winter drawing nigh, we may not have to worry about either of those things for a little while, but, if we do, I know how to handle it. I’ll just call Brian and have him come over. He knows all about air conditioners and capacitors, and, better yet, knows how to deal with them when they go bad. I’ve added his number to speed dial on my cell phone. It’s comforting to have help only a phone call away.
Kudos: To our football and volleyball players! Your doing good! Support our youth and attend the games!

Lookin’ Around | Syd Iwan
Capacitors are useful things to have around. For lack of a good one, for instance, your air conditioner may hum and try to kick in, but not be able to. As a result, on a hundred-degree day like Friday, (Okay, okay, it only got to 99. Let’s not exaggerate.) your house may be a bit uncomfortable at 85 to 88. If you sit very quietly under a fan, that isn’t too bad. If you exert yourself in any way, though, you’re going to sweat and maybe quite a bit. It was therefore a relief when Brian arrived with a new capacitor, installed it, and got us going again. Wife Corinne and I don’t like it when it’s too hot inside, but we can sort of deal with it. Son Chance, though, may have more trouble than we do since heat affects his myasthenia gravis and can cause it to flare up. All of us, naturally, appreciate cooler environs. Capacitors, in case you aren’t familiar with them, come in many shapes and sizes. The one Brian replaced was about the size of a pop can although not quite as tall and maybe a little bigger around. It had little electrical connectors on the top. When Corinne asked what repairs had been made, I told her what Brian had told me about the capacitor going bad. As I expected, this didn’t actually explain much of anything to my frau since electrical widgets aren’t her thing. It didn’t actually explain all that much to me either except in a vague sort of way. Later we looked capacitors up and found they store energy in an electric field and can stabilize voltage and power flow. We weren’t a lot wiser for this new information either, but that doesn’t really matter if we’re not in the business of fiddling with electrical circuits and the like which I certainly am not. I leave that to individuals who know how to deal with such things without getting themselves fried by stray bolts of electricity. Suffice it to say that a defective capacitor will bring things to a halt, and a good one will allow you to get on with life. What saved us somewhat on Friday was that I reverted to my childhood on Thursday night when the air conditioner quit working. I threw open all the windows and let the cool night air in. Naturally, we had to turn out all the lights to avoid being swarmed by those miniscule bugs that can squeeze through the screens, and there were a lot of them about. We left a TV on for Chance and a computer for me, but the other lights went out. Occasionally our viewing screens got a little buggy, but I’d just squish the suckers and go on. Then, before the day heated up, the windows were slammed back shut. As a kid, we didn’t even have electricity, much less air conditioning. After the arrival of electricity, we still went many years without cooling machines. Finally, after one summer persisted in being extremely warm and not cooling down much at night, we broke down and got a big window air conditioner. That made life a lot simpler although we still tended to turn the machine off at night and open the windows. At least two of our neighbors had another way of dealing with

Concern: Why is it that residents have received letters to mow their property but the streets have weeds growing on them that haven’t been taken care of? Concern: The library issue worries me. Once you lose a service, it very hard to ever get it back. The books at the school have been pur-

chased by tax dollars, why purchase them again with tax dollars. Give the books to the school so they may continue the service to the students. Kudos: To Deputy Sheriff Dallas Kendrick for answering a call for help. Kudos & Concern: It was a nice gesture for the Kadoka school to host an open house, but the attendance was low.

Concern: The commissioners are concerned about have enough revenue to operate Jackson County, then why can they make a donation for $500 to the Bennett County Elderly Meals program and purchase items outside our county? •Want to telling some one “good job” or have a concern?

Stop Mortgaging Young Americans’ Futures
What if I told you that if you graduated from college in the last 10 years, in addition to your student loan debt, you might owe the government over federal $300,000? If you’re in your 20s and 30s, that is unfortunately your reality. For too long, politicians in Washington have focused on passing bills that put a Band-Aid over fiscal problems in the short term, while ignoring the long-term consequences for future generations. The result is a massive fiscal gap that will place crippling financial burdens on today’s young people. From a personal standpoint, I worry about how the rising debt burden will affect my two daughters, who recently graduated college and entered the workforce. The record levels of debt we’re amassing could lead to a fiscal crisis in the coming decade, as the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office has warned. This would harm economic growth, destroy jobs, and drive up interest rates, which would make it more expensive for young people to borrow money for college or buy their first home. That is why I recently introduced a bill along with Senator Tim Kaine (D-Va.) to bring more transparency to the budget process and ensure that members of Congress and the administration have the information they need to prepare for future budget realities. The Intergenerational Financial Obligations Reform (INFORM) Act would provide for detailed, long-term analysis of how major legislative policies, economic advancements, and congressional budget decisions would impact future generations. This approach, which is known as a generational accounting and fiscal gap analysis, would examine the full scope of the government’s obligations, present and future, and then analyze the effects those obligations will have on current and future generations. It would also require the president to provide a detailed accounting of how the administration’s budget and policy recommendations would affect young people down the line. Under current practice, Congress is typically only provided with information about the budgetary impacts of spending and policy decisions over the next 10 years. Our bill would allow Congress and the administration to look at the effects that changes in the economy, spending, or taxes would have on Americans 20, 50, or even 75 years down the road. Fortunately, if we act now, we can stop this spiral of spending and debt and start building a more stable financial future. Politicians in Washington have spent enough time kicking the can down the road. It’s time to stop mortgaging young Americans’ futures and start being accountable for our actions..

Practical Money Matters | Jason Alderman, Financial Education Advisor
How to Survive an IRS Audit
Few events inspire more dread than an IRS tax audit. Even if you're confident you've accounted for every cent of income and only taken legitimate deductions, it's hard not to worry what a close examination of your tax returns might uncover – not to mention the time spent tracking down old records. Here are a few pointers to help allay your fears and better prepare in case you should ever get chosen for the dreaded IRS audit: There are three basic types of IRS audits: •Correspondence audit, which is conducted entirely by mail. You'll receive a letter from the IRS asking for additional information about specific items on your tax return. •Field audit, where an IRS agent comes to your home or business to examine records and observe where you work. •Office audit, where you must be interviewed at an IRS office. According to Chris Kollaja, a certified public accountant and partner at A.L. Nella & Company in San Francisco, California, if you're having a correspondence audit and you feel your records are too voluminous to mail, you can request a face-to-face audit. "You can also ask a representative, such as your accountant, tax preparer or lawyer, to help prepare for the audit and even attend it in your place, if allowed," says Kollaja. "An experienced tax professional can tell you what to expect, guide your responses and keep the audit on track should you get tongue-tied or start sharing more than is necessary." The chances of being audited are low. "Sometimes returns are randomly selected for audit, but more often it's because something jumped out in the computer analysis each return receives," he explains. Common items that might trigger an audit: •Taxable income listed on your return doesn't match amounts W2 or 1099 forms, 401(k) plan or IRA distributions, brokerage accounts, etc. •Taking above-average charitable deductions relative to your income. •Deducting business meals, travel and entertainment. •Claiming the home office deduction. •Failure to report foreign bank account assets. •Concealing cash income or receipts. •Excessive cash transactions over $10,000. •Your close relationship to another taxpayer being audited. •Someone reports suspicious activity by you (the IRS offers a Whistleblower Award). Kollaja recommends several ways to prepare for and attend an audit: Respond to the IRS within the stated deadline – usually 30 days. •Organize paperwork and receipts pertinent to the issues they've identified. •If you won't have everything ready in time for the audit, contact your auditor to discuss whether it can proceed anyway, or if they'll agree to postpone it. •Bring or send only documentation requested in the initial notice. •At an in-person audit, keep you answers brief and don't voluntarily provide information that could launch a fishing expedition. •If the examiner questions you on an item not mentioned in the initial notice, you're allowed to ask for additional time to fulfill additional requests. •Never give original receipts to the IRS agent – they are not responsible for lost paperwork. •You're allowed to make an audio recording of the audit provided you sent your agent written notice 10 days before the appointment. Video recordings are not allowed. •Always be polite. Acting belligerent or evasive can only hurt your cause. Kollaja suggests reading IRS Publication 556 to learn more about how the audit process works and reviewing the section on itemized deductions in Publication 17, both available at www.irs.gov. Bottom line: Think positively – you might even come out of the audit with a tax refund – it happens.

September is National Preparedness Month
While many families across South Dakota have begun taking the necessary steps to welcome fall and winter, most of these decisions probably revolve around kickoff times and sporting events. Another important aspect about planning for the upcoming seasons is our state’s unpredictable weather. As excited as we may be for halftime performances and cross country meets, it’s more than likely that Mother Nature may cancel more than a few of our upcoming games and activities. As South Dakotans, we have all come to accept our state’s everchanging weather as part of its charm. From spring blizzards to fall freezes and extreme heat to frigid cold, the Great Plains is home to some of nature’s most fascinating and dangerous weather events. After living in South Dakota my entire life, it’s hardly surprising when we find ourselves revving up the snow blower in May or trick-or-treating in snow suits in October. I believe it’s important for all of us to take the time to prepare and educate friends and family on the possible dangers we may face due to weather. September is FEMA’s National Preparedness Month, which aims to educate all Americans and help prepare families for any type of emergency. Although preparedness is highlighted this month, it’s important to remember that preparedness needs to be part of our daily lives. It’s possible that your family may not be together when a disaster strikes, so make a plan to figure out how everyone will get to a safe place and how you will contact one another. Make sure to also figure out emergency plans at work, school and other locations where your family spends time. There are many effective resources to help your family prepare for severe weather and emergencies, including the South Dakota Department of Public Safety and your local emergency manager. Take time this month to build an emergency preparedness plan if you don’t already have one and then go over and practice your plan with your loved ones. For more information about how to make an emergency plan and ways to stay informed in your community, visit www.Ready.gov for more information.

The DM&E’s Uncertain Fate
A couple of weeks ago I was fortunate enough to spend time at the State Fair. As I was talking with fairgoers, checking out the displays and enjoying a treat from the Dakota Flavor Market Place, I was reminded again of the importance of agriculture as the foundation of South Dakota’s economy. In part, the success of South Dakota's agricultural development is owed to the industry's ability to ship products to and from South Dakota via rail. Rail service allows South Dakota products to enter regional and global markets. When our products are shipped by rail, it saves money for producers and consumers. In order to keep the price of our products competitive, the shipping costs need to be competitive as well. One important rail line in South Dakota is the old DM&E line, now owned by the Canadian Pacific. The line runs through many South Dakota cities and towns including Belle Fourche, Sturgis, Rapid City, Wall, Phillip, Midland, Pierre, Onida, Aberdeen, Huron, Watertown and Brookings. Around 80 to 90 million bushels of grain are shipped each year across the state on the Canadian Pacific rail line. When the Canadian Pacific purchased the line from the DM&E in 2008, it promised more efficient service, more competitive shipping options and the investment of hundreds of millions of dollars in the line. At the time, the people of South Dakota relied upon these promises and supported the acquisition. Last December, the Canadian Pacific Railway announced that it may sell the portion of the DM&E line that runs from Tracy, Minnesota to Colony, Wyoming, including the entire line in South Dakota. When I learned of CP’s intentions to sell the line, I reached out to the company’s president to verify that the company had kept its initial promises for investment in improvements. Unfortunately, my request went largely unanswered. Consequently, I felt compelled to file a petition, on behalf of South Dakota, with the federal Surface Transportation Board, asking these same questions. This week I am traveling to Washington, D.C. to encourage federal officials to get to the bottom of this. South Dakotans deserve to know whether CP kept its promises. This line is too important to the farmers and ranchers – and to all people in our state – for these questions to go unanswered.

Your questions, Our answers
Q: What are Social Security mother and father benefits? A: These are Social Security survivor benefits to a surviving spouse or surviving divorced spouse based on having a child of the deceased in their care. Mother and father benefits may be paid to a surviving spouse or surviving divorced spouse regardless of age, if she or he is currently unmarried and has a young child under age 16, or a disabled adult child, of the deceased in their care, and the child is entitled to benefits on that deceased parent’s record. Mother and father survivor benefits are usually paid to widows and widowers who are younger than retirement age. Similar benefits are payable to the spouse of a person receiving SSA retirement or disability benefits if children are involved, but not to a former spouse.

Shirley (Bauman) Phillips and son, Andrew, of Las Vegas, NV, arrived in Kadoka on Saturday and will spend several days visiting with Frank and Myrth Bauman and other relatives and friends. The four of them enjoyed supper at Jigger’s on Saturday evening with Geraldine Allen and Janice Perkins. Larry and Alvina Parkinson also joined them to visit awhile. Larry and Shirley are former Kadoka High School classmates. Shirley has just recently returned from a trip to Scotland. Suzanne Hoon’s niece, Angela Setera of Houston, TX, and her fiance, Bryan Dumas, came to Kadoka on Sunday, Sept. 1, for a visit with several members of the VanderMay family. Angela is the daughter of Mary VanderMay Setera, and the couple left on Monday to return to their home. According to a recent newspaper article, two Jackson County students were named to the spring semester president’s academic honors list at Dakota State University in Madison. They were Candice Buchholz of Belvidere and Christian Byrd of Kadoka. Deb and Marv Moor drove to Springfield, MO, over the Labor Day weekend to visit with their son, Marcus. Matthew Moor of Cedar Rapids, IA, joined them in Springfield for the holiday. The Moors returned to Kadoka on Monday, the 2nd of September. Friends in this area of Lucille Brunsch of Norris learned of her death on September 5 at her home. She was a resident at one time in the Gateway Apartments. Funeral services were held in Martin on Monday at the St. Katherine Episcopal Church. Sympathy is extended to her family. Kim Miller of Gillette, WY, spent the weekend at the home of her mom, Patty Ulmen. Saturday morning's storm resulted in a lightning hit at the home of Patty’s brother and wife, Bob and Kathy Fugate. There was no fire damage, but the local fire department checked out the house and some electrical repair work will have to be done. The local area has enjoyed a couple nice rainfalls, but the lightning and thunder were an unwelcome alarm clock Saturday morning. Verda Anderson, Curtis, Bobby and Misti, Braden Letellier and Storm Wilcox went to Huron on Friday evening, August 30, to take in the last few days of the South Dakota State Fair. Misti Anderson then left from Rapid City Tuesday morning of last week for a base in North Carolina where she will be serving in the National Guard. Nona and Kieth Prang and Brett and Tammy Prang went to Belle Fourche on Saturday where they attended a birthday party for Weston Carlson, who turned five that day. He is the son of Jesse Carlson, and the Prangs’ grandson and great-grandson. Luke Horacek of Yankton visited with Nona and Kieth Prang this past weekend. He had been boating on the Green River and was on his way home. Electa (Briggs) Preslicka of Bradshaw, NE, arrived in Kadoka this weekend and will spend about a week visiting with her sister, Bonnie Riggins, and other relatives and friends. Jackson County American Legion Auxiliary will hold it’s first meeting after the summer break on Thursday, Sept. 12, at 7 p.m. in the community room of the Gateway Apartments. Membership notices for 2014 will be sent out on September 15 according to news from Department Headquarters. Members are urged to attend. While my brother, Larry Parkinson, was on his daily golf outing at the Kadoka Golf Course Saturday, an airplane landed at the local airport. The Hagdorns from Brookings were piloting the plane and told Larry that they have a goal of landing at every airport in the State of South Dakota and are taking pictures at each one. He signed their log book, to prove that they did indeed land in Kadoka. Roy and Rose Albin were in the area this last week, having driven the 1,700 miles from their home in Parkton, Maryland. Rose said they have been coming back for the last 46 years and see no reason to stop now. They came in part to see Roy’s aunt, Bonnie Riggins, who is in fairly poor health. While here, they stayed with another aunt, Cloreta Eisenbraun. Roy’s brother, Ross, also came to Cloreta’s from Powell, WY, to see everyone. Roy, Rose, and Cloreta came to church in Belvidere on Sunday and stayed for the coffee time afterwards to do some visiting. On the trip here, the Albins came through Nebraska to visit Rose’s brother and sister who are both now in their 80s. Rose said they took highway 83 from Nebraska to South Dakota which seemed a little odd because they have a highway 83 by them in Maryland too. Cloreta said she has finally quit teaching school this fall after having done that for something like 65 years. She started teaching in 1946 and has been at it ever since and just quitting this last May. She was amused that she got a call from the school in Timber Lake asking her to come teach there. She wasn’t totally against the idea since she is only 86 and still in good health, but her daughter, Nancy, said no. That wasn’t a good idea. Cloreta decided against starting up again, but she did say she misses the kids. Wade Fox said that he recently gained a new toy. The toy is a backhoe that he purchased from Brent Peters when Brent was trading his for a new one. Wade just offered to pay the trade-in value. Wade figures it will come in handy for dealing with the water problems they often encounter at their place. He might do some custom work as well but hasn’t decided about that just yet. Wade

also said Clay Hindman had the misfortune of breaking his neck in a rodeo recently after which he was flown to Sioux Falls for treatment. After just a few days in the hospital, Clay came back home where he is recuperating fairly well. Jim and Georgann Addison are still on the volleyball trail since their daughter, Jami, played in a game at Wall this last week. More are scheduled. Georgann has been spending quite a bit of time with her mom, Audrey Carley, in Philip lately as Audrey isn’t in very good health. Jerry Sanftner was camped out at his apartment on Main Street in Belvidere this weekend. He and his family have been renovating that former bank/drugstore/post office building this summer and now have it inhabitable. He was waiting for a new heating stove to be delivered and installed early this week. Jerry’s wife didn’t come along since she is currently in Spain visiting grandchildren. Jerry would have loved to have gone with her, but his insurance business prevented that. Big changes are coming to the health insurance business on October 1 due to the start of Obamacare, and he needed to stay home to deal with that. Glenn Freeman said he had been enjoying going to noon-luncheon meetings of the “Wing Nuts” organization which is held at the Eagle’s Club in Rapid City on Tuesdays. This is a group of conservative Christians who like to meet and discuss things. People from various branches of government often attend and state their views. The Eagles Club is on the east side of town and just a few blocks from Rice Cycle. Glenn tries to schedule his doctor appointments so he can attend the meetings. Glenn also said his son, Jimmie, is now settled into a new house in Des Moines, Iowa, and is reunited with his first wife from whom he had been separated for some 35 years. They have kids in the area and living nearby. You may recall that Jimmie came and lived with Glenn and Lucy for many months and helped out after Glenn had knee replacement surgery. He was a real help at that time and took care of the mowing, some of the cooking, etc. On Sunday, Glenn and Lucy were vacuuming and moving furniture in preparation for the arrival of a carpet cleaner on Monday. Glenn said he was advised to hand the carpet cleaner the keys and go away for awhile. He thought this might be fairly good advice. Betty Kusick caught a ride south with Crystal Paulson on Thursday and spent the day visiting Joe Livermont over there. Betty was also driving around in a Cadillac this last week while her own car was being repaired. The Caddy was loaned to her by her daughter, Loretta Schreiber, and her husband, Lawrence, of Quinn. Then, after she got her own car back, it started steering hard. That was traced to a belt found lying in the driveway which had to be replaced. Getting cars back and forth was aided by being able to catch rides back and forth to Kadoka with Dana Badure. The Schreibers were on hand on Wednesday the 4th to help Betty celebrate her 39th birthday--again (actually her 86th). They didn’t bring a cake, but they did provide a tasty rolled dessert. Betty has also been giving tomatoes away right and left including to this news correspondent. Her crop has been good, and she’s trying to give enough away that she doesn’t feel forced to can tomatoes on hundred-degree days.

“Have courage for the great sorrows of life and patience for the small ones; and when you have laboriously accomplished your daily task, go to sleep in peace. God is awake.” Victor Hugo A long time resident of the Norris area passed away last week. Sympathy is extended to the family of Lucille Brunsch, 93. Her funeral was Monday, September 9, 2013 at 11:00 in Martin at the Episcopal Church. Glen Krogman spent Labor Day weekend with his parents, Richard and Noreen Krogman. They took in the Louie Krogman family horse sale in Valentine, September 1. After the sale they visited Clarence Krogman. A former coworker of Noreen’s contacted her, and they met for lunch in Murdo on Labor Day. The friend had been living in Texas and was in the area with her daughter for a family cousins reunion in Blunt. Noreen hadn’t seen her for 27 years. Glen left Monday to return to his home in Fargo. The Krogmans are still cutting and baling hay. Friday night Richard and Noreen attended the football game in White River with New Underwood. Besides putting up garden produce gifted to her from others, Noreen is also getting baking done for the bake sale at the Catholic Hall. Sunday afternoon Noreen was in Mission for the DNP quilting session. Last Tuesday, Janice M. Ring was a dinner guest of Robert and Sharon Ring. Thursday afternoon Sharon attended the LA-LWML meeting at Jessie Ring’s home. Friday and Saturday she was busy driving truck as the Ring’s were busy chopping alfalfa and filling the silo. Sunday she used some of her garden produce to add to the pizzas she had ready for the Sunday School children to make as they begin another year of Sunday School at St. John. Jan Ring attended the homecoming parade in Philip on Friday, and also picked up some parts while there. The Bruce Ring family headed for Custer Sunday afternoon, September 1. Monday they drove to Newcastle, WY, to join others in celebrating the 25th wedding anniversary of Rob and Peggy Roberts of Rapid City, which was hosted by their parents in Newcastle. The Rings returned home Monday night, and Jessie then drove to Rosebud to pick up June as she returned with the Utechts from the state fair. Days earlier, on the 26th, Jessie had taken June to the Utecht home in Rosebud to catch a ride with them and go to Huron to help with the Puppet Place at the state fair. The puppet show this year was “The Three Men in the Fiery Furnace.” Saturday Jessie was one of the truck drivers as the Rings chopped alfalfa, so June was at their home taking care of he children. Sunday afternoon Jessie took the children to visit their grandmother for Grandparents’ Day. It is homecoming week at White River, with coronation on Monday, and the parade and football game on Friday. Clifford and Pam Allard invited the Taft’s to supper Saturday evening to help Pam celebrate her birthday September 7. Pam received the encouraging news that her mother’s cancer has shrunk considerably. Stan Allard of Rapid City came last Wednesday to visit Maxine, and to do some repair work around the place. Grandson Patrick arrived that afternoon to visit Maxine, and stayed overnight. He left Thursday to return to Virginia and continue his training in the Army there. June Ring visited Thursday evening and had supper with Maxine. Sunday afternoon, September 1, Pastor Glenn Denke was among 14 pastors who participated in the ordination and installation of Rev. Adam Welton at Presho, SD. Rev. Welton will be serving congregations in Presho and Reliance. Thursday Pastor Denke led the topic at the LWML meeting at the home of Jessie Ring. Blake and Amy Lehman were among those attending the football game in White River on Friday. That night they received half an inch of rain. Around here, the gauge showed only six hundredths. Tuesday morning, September 2, Ace and Jean Kary took Rebekkah back to college at the School of Mines, and then attended the funeral of Twila Abourezk at 11:00 in Rapid City. Friday Ace and Jean were back in Rapid City to keep appointments, and brought Rebekkah home with them for the weekend. Sunday afternoon Jean accompanied June Ring to the DNP quilting session in Mission. June Ring kept a dental appointment in Valentine Friday morning, and in the afternoon was in Murdo for the SD District LWML Christian Life workshop. Rev. Randy Sturzenbecher of Black Hawk presented the study on “The Benefits of Christ’s Very Body and Blood, for Us!” Saturday Janice M. Ring was in Highmore to help celebrate the birthday of her grandson, Max Ring, son of Mike and Marilyn Ring. Ray Welker had the tragic misfortune to have his pickup catch on fire Thursday afternoon and he was severely burned. Neighbors came to his rescue and called for medical help. He was airlifted to Greeley, Colorado, and is in the burn unit there. He is listed in serious but stable condition. His address is North Colorado Medical Center, Attention Burn Unit, 1801 16th Street, Greeley, CO 80631. Early Saturday morning folks set out to mow and clean around St. Paul Episcopal Church and cemetery north of Norris. It was a tough and necessary job because of all the growth this summer. We appreciate all the folks who have helped maintain the property: Russell Eagle Bear, Kris and John WoodenKnife, Leon Huber, Earl Wilcox, Cassie and Rod, Sherri Lafferty, and Stanton and Carol Anderson. The community appreciates this kind gesture very much. James, Marjorie Anne and Julie Letellier drove to Ft. Thompson Saturday afternoon and met with the Paul Beckwith family, and they traveled on to Trojan Field in Madison, SD. They all enjoyed the football game between Dordt College of Sioux Center, Iowa, and Dakota State. Dordt won the exciting game 14-13. Dordt College has 91 members on their football team. DJ Beckwith is a freshman and got to suit up for the game. The group returned home after the game, following a brief visit with DJ. Watching the grandkids in sports is a full time job!

Kougars defeated by Scotties after a tough battle
Kadoka Lady Kougars hosted the Philip Lady Scotties on Thursday, September 5. After a strong battle at the net, Kadoka lost to Philip 3-1: 16-25, 17-25, 25-18, 21-25. “It was a hard fought match by both sides, and I felt our girls really played well. They played great defense combined with some surprising offense we maybe didn't think we had. We had some inexperienced girls rise to the occasion,” said Coach Barry Hutchinson. Raven Jorgensen led the servers with two aces and nine service points. Raven also had ten kills, and Myla Pierce added nine. Taylor Merchen had ten set assists and Allie Romero had six. Destiny Dale led the team with seven digs. Kadoka will travel to Little Wound on Tuesday, September 10, Wall on Thursday, September 12 and then to the Philip tournament on Saturday, September 14.

3 Check It Out at the Library 3
What's Been Happening this Summer: The article placed in the Kadoka Press on a couple weeks ago was meant to inform and educate county residents of the history and current situation we face with our library status today. We are now facing a time of transition between library service, locations, and governmental funding distribution. Those are big words that mean our governing boards and commissions spend many hours hammering-out details for the best outcomes for all residents' interests. Change can sometimes be frightning—especially when the future is unknown. But working together for a common good creates a strong foundation from which progress is made and best outcomes are produced. Rest reassured of continued library service for Jackson County residents. Please know your understanding and patience through current transitional phases and changing service is greatly appreciated. Upcoming Programs and Events: Interested in joining us for a fun trip to Deadwood for the Book Festival on Saturday Sept 21st? Call the library for more details Because we use their toolkits and books, the SD Humanities Reading Group will now be called the Dakota Readers. These books, in one way or another, have a South Dakota thread. The book chosen for the Dakota Readers for this fall is “One-Room School” -- a collection of stories from people around the state of South Dakota. Like our previous gathering, this discussion will prove to be better than the book—with many of our own stories and memories becoming the main enjoyment. Stop in to sign-up for this fun trip down memory lane. The reason for re-namng the group is because there has been much interest in forming another discussion group that centers on a growing interest group of books— Christian-centered books. While not a bible study, books in this genre have been flying off the shelves here! While this section here is still growing, the collection is very thin at present, To help with this, Jan Cerney has steppedup to lead the new “ChristianBook Readers” reading group with the book, “The Wedding Dress”. This story is about a wedding dress that has been used by four individuals and the stories that go with them. This group promises to draw wonderful discussion on how God works in our everyday lives. Hours of Operation: Winter hours are coming—and still in the works—We will keep you posted! Life on the seat of a Tractor: Your fences need to be horse-high, pig-tight and bull-strong Keep your distance from skunks and quicksand Life is simpler when you plow around the stump Questions?

The Kadoka team is very thankful for its customers and community and this is just one small way we can express our gratitude,” said Kadoka Branch President Gene Christensen.

restaurant or at home. Both men also stressed how they are trying to change people’s perceptions of where and how the meat is produced. They both stressed how beef production is a family operation, and want the consumers to know that. “The consumer wants to know more about their product, where it’s raised,” said Corah. “We work in this industry because we have a passion for our cattle.” Corah said as we capitalize on that, we will have a great message to send back to the consumer. Corah said that Certified Angus Beef does a lot of work with food service companies. He said it is a segment that really wants to know what cattle producers are doing in the industry. He stated that when they take a group of people out to tour a ranch he tries to stress the investment the producer has in the cattle and the land. “It is a huge investment, but it is family, not a huge corporation,” he said. It’s family, the idea of passing it on to the next generation, said Corah. Corah noted during the past few years companies have been going to premium beef products for their customers. This includes grocery store chains as well as restaurants. Two chains he mentioned were Kroger and Cosco, both of which started selling a high quality of prime beef. He stated it has been very good for them. Corah said the premium beef market started about 17 years ago and was priced at $24. That price has now more than quadrupled. He said if a consumer is paying a high dollar amount for a steak, it better be a good piece of steak. The premium beef comes from the top 25 percent of cattle sold, he said. “That’s where most cattle coming out of South Dakota fit.” Corah added that there is now ground beef that is marketed as premium grinds or blends. Typically, he said, these are higher cuts of beef and younger cattle. Mackay noted that for his family’s El Gaucho restaurants, they look for a premium beef steak that is consistent in size and tenderness. The El Gaucho restaurants are found in Seattle, Bellvue, Tacoma, Wash., and Portland, Ore. Mackay stated that since they are high end steakhouses, they are at the leading edge of what consumers want to pay for a steak. To ensure quality, everyone in the restaurant, from the servers, to the chefs to general management take “Cattle 101,” said Mackay. He said they not only learn what about cuts of meat, but EPDs (expected progeny differences), how and what cattle are fed. They also tour cattle operations and learn about everything from calving through growing “this incredible quality of beef.” Mackay said as consumers hear about hormones and GMOs (genetically modified organism – typically grains) they are concerned about their health. That’s where instructing all their employees is such a benefit; they can inform the consumer about the restaurant’s product. Mackay noted that a middleaged man is less concerned about these issues than a younger woman is. He added that someone over the age of 50 is more apt to order a steak than someone in the 30 year range. Someone under the age of 30 will buy something along the line of beef tips. Corah noted that it’s facilities such as Cottonwood that help the producers bring the quality product to the consumer. He touched on some of the information that has come from the Cottonwood station, such as body condition scoring, how breeding systems affect everything from weaning weight to the carcass hanging on the rail, and how winter feeding

Corah and Mackay speak at Cottonwood’s Tri-County Ag Day
by Nancy Haigh Two keynote speakers brought different perspectives regarding cattle marketing to the audience at Tri-County Ag Day held at the Cottonwood Range and Livestock Field Station, September 7. Larry Corah, vice president of production for Certified Angus Beef, and Chad Mackay, president and COO of El Gaucho Hospitality, Seattle, Wash., were the two keynote speakers at the event. Corah spoke on working with the restaurant industry and how the cattle situation in Russia will affect the producers in the United States. Mackay discussed El Gaucho restaurants, which are high-end steakhouses, and how they train their staff to inform the consumer about their steak. The essence of what both speakers presented is how the cattle producer has come from just thinking of marketing his product to the sale barn and now is, and must, think about how that end product looks on a plate at a

affects the calf ’s growth from birth to rail. Looking to the future, Corah believes biogenetics, being able to select for traits that has been unavailable before, will aid the industry. He stated that’s where stations like Cottonwood become very important; they can sort through the technology and help the producer make the decisions that impact the industry. Corah also spoke about how the changes in the Russian cattle industry will soon affect the United States cattle industry. Corah said that when the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics dissolved most of the cattle were eaten. He said Russia is really starting now at where the United States was in the 1930s and 40s;

or even farther back. Corah stated that people from Russia have been visiting the United States and Australia to learn how to build their cattle industry. He noted they have been heavily importing Angus cattle to Russia. They plan to build huge feedlots and packing facilities. Until they have enough cattle of their own to fill those facilities, they will purchase feeder cattle in the United States and Australia and ship them to Russia. Corah said that Russia has a long ways to go to just feed themselves, that he does not look for them to selling cattle back to the United States for a long time. And then he expects they will focus on the market in Europe.

Inspiration Point
Programming Our Minds
Read 1 Colossians 3:15-17 The mind is the control tower of life. Decisions determine actions, which in turn affect the immediate and distant future. The person each of us will be 20 years from now is impacted by how we think today. If we want our future self to be pleasing to the Lord, then we must begin at once to program our mind with godly thoughts. In Romans 12:2 and Ephesians 4:23, Paul tells believers to reject worldly thinking and renew the mind. We have been given the capacity to think as Jesus does—if we submit to the transforming work of the Holy Spirit. The believer should seek the things of God as an act of submission. This means opening our minds only to biblically sound attitudes and philosophies. It’s important that we protect ourselves from the world’s self-serving mindset, because we are to be God’s servants. A second way to submit is by sifting our thoughts through the Word and will of God. This is a practical step that allows us to identify wrong thinking. We must consider whether an attitude or line of reasoning is pleasing to the Lord and useful for making us into the person He has called us to be. Then, when a thought is unscriptural, we can choose to reject it (2 Cor. 10:5). Of course, the only way to know if a thought pleases the Lord is to read and meditate upon His Word. In the Bible, God provides examples of righteous living and thinking, and He offers guidance for choosing such patterns. Scripture is the instruction manual for our control tower.

Presbyterian Sunday School Rally Day will be held September 15
Sunday School Rally Day at the Presbyterian Church in Kadoka will Sunday, September 15 at 10:00 a.m. It will be on the front lawn of the church. There will be minnow races, basketball shooting and drawings for prizes. We will be giving away a basketball, football, soccer ball, soda, hats, and many other items. There will be games and prizes for everyone and everyone is cordially invited. Regular Sunday School classes for children will begin Sunday, September 22 at 10:00 a.m. We have classes for children in preschool through twelfth grade. Our adult Sunday School has already started and everyone is welcome. As parents we offer our children love, food, and shelter to help them grow but in this busy world we don’t want to forget to teach them about Jesus Christ and the importance of moral values. Here are six reason that Sunday School can benefit your child: 1. Christian education can reinforce the beliefs and values that you believe in. 2. Experienced teachers can help your child to learn the timeless truths of the Bible that have helped so many people all their life. 3. We want our children to make choices for themselves as adults but children need to the right information to make an informed decision. 4. When you help your child learn about God, they are better able to: love God, love others, and love and accept themselves. The Bible teaches generosity, sacrifice, and love which are values that we all desire for our children. 5. Raising children can be very challenging today and Sunday School can guide your child away from the wrong influences that they are facing and will face. 6. The Bible is the world’s best selling book and it has given instruction, correction, purpose and inspiration to people through the ages. Join us for Rally Day on Sunday, September 15 at 10:00 a.m. and on Sunday School on September 22. Please call Gary McCubbin if you have any questions at 8372485 (home) or 837-2233 (church).

year the county would have to cut services. The 2014 Jackson County provisional budget was adopted on August 12, 2013 and includes the funding of the Kadoka library and both branch libraries. Report was made that the 2014 Provisional budget is a balanced budget, but that the $117,000 in CD’s held by the county are being used to finance the budget. The only items removed from the budget at this point have been the JacksonKadoka Economic Development Group request of $5,000 and the State Predatory Animal Control annual appropriation of $3,440, but citizens have requested that the State Predatory Animal Control appropriation be reinstated. The final 2014 budget will not be adopted until September. Debra Moor, Head Librarian, presented information on current number of books at each library and programs now available. She also presented history of the Jackson County library. Margaret Sampson, Interior Librarian, informed the group that she has been the librarian at the Interior school as a county employee for thirty years. She reported that when the school is closed there is no access to the library, and it is not a public library but a school library. She reported that the library at Interior has current books, there are no adult books in the Interior library, and all books are filed under the school’s Accelerated Reading program. She stated the county pays the librarians and buys the books. She stated that she feels the school needs to step up and take over the libraries in the schools. Patty Hamar, Long Valley Librarian, reported that the books at the Long Valley School are filed under the Accelerated Reading Program. Debra Moor reported that Jackson County is the only county in the state that has libraries located in schools that are funded by the county. She informed the group that the State Librarian recommends that the county and the school should have a written contract or agreement for the county’s libraries to be in the schools. She also reported that the school has school libraries at the Kadoka School and Midland School. Report was made that the libraries at the Long Valley and Interior schools are not closed and books are not being removed from the libraries at the schools, but that the libraries are circulating books at the current time. Comment was made that if the libraries are closed in the schools, then the Kadoka county library should be closed also. A citizen reported on being denied access to the Kadoka library. Questions posed by the public included why didn’t the county discuss not funding the branch libraries with the school administration prior to this, could the county continue to fund the two libraries located in the schools until the school could establish funding for them, could all three county libraries be placed in the schools and they all be public libraries. Jamie Hermann, Supt., Kadoka Area School District informed the group that he would not be in approval of the libraries in the schools being public libraries due to school policies and security of the students. A suggestion was made that there may be possible assistance from the Long Valley Booster Club to keep the Long Valley library open until the school could take it over. Chairman Bennett explained to the group

Public Notices
that the county has nine bridges that are currently deficient and need to be replaced, the highway shop building in Kadoka is not structurally sound and needs to be replaced, and the county library building in Kadoka has black mold and has areas you can see daylight from inside the building. He stated that the county has no means of revenue to finance any of these projects, and sentimentality does not pay the county’s bills. Members of the board stated they felt the libraries should continue for the kids and be operated as school libraries. The board informed the group they will meet with the school on continued operation of the libraries in the Long Valley and Interior schools. There being no further business to come before the board Twiss moved, Johnston seconded, that the meeting be adjourned and that the board meet in special session at 10:00 a.m., September 3, 2013 for road matters and begin the public hearing on the 2014 Jackson County budget at 1:00 p.m., September 3, 2013. The board will meet in regular session at 9:00 a.m., Monday, September 9, 2013 and this is the date scheduled to adopt the 2014 Jackson County budget.

A regular meeting of the Town of Cottonwood was held at Town Hall on Monday evening, August 19, 2013 at 7 p.m. Present were JC Heath, Doug Hovland, Vernon Omdahl, Bernie & Jeri Hanks and John Neumann. Absent: Jeff Heath. The meeting was called to order by JC Heath. The financial report was read. Old Business: The topic of fixing the roof on the Hall was again addressed. Again it was decided to not go ahead with Town of Cottonwood fixing roof. If the cash that has been raised to upkeep the Hall is deposited into the Town of Cottonwood account and the books audited prior to deposit, the money would be used for upkeep. However, that would not commit town to replace the roof.

The Board of Jackson County Commissioners met in special session at 7:00 p.m., Thursday, August 29, 2013 in the Long Valley School gym. Chairman Glen Bennett called the meeting to order with members Larry Denke, Larry Johnston, Jim Stilwell and Ron Twiss present. Jamie Hermann, Supt., Kadoka Area School District was present. Also present were Debra Moor, Margaret Sampson and Patty Hamar, Jackson County librarians. The purpose of the meeting was to inform the public and obtain public input on the county libraries located in the Long Valley and Interior schools. Over forty residents of the Long Valley and Interior communities were present. Concerns began when the school moved the Long Valley library into a smaller room at the Long Valley School. At the August 1, 2013 Jackson County Commission meeting it was discussed to not fund the Long Valley and Interior libraries that are housed in the schools. No action was taken by the board at that time to adjust the 2014 Jackson County budget. This meeting was called due to questions and concerns voiced by citizens. Vicki Wilson, Auditor, presented county library expenditures for the years of 2010, 2011, 2012 and January through May of 2013. This information was handed out to the board and persons in attendance. Explanation was given that salaries, books and magazine expenditures have been split out to show those expenditures for each separate library, and explanation given that Jackson County has not paid rent to the school to have the libraries within the school buildings. A question was presented about the utilities paid by Jackson County. The group was informed that the utility expenses shown are for the Kadoka library only. The group was informed that counties, and other local government entities, are under a tax limitation imposed by the state legislature, and are only able to levy a limited amount each year over the previous year. The amount Jackson County can levy over the previous year averages between $15,000 to $25,000 per year for the county’s General Fund, but in 2010 for taxes due in 2011 the county could only levy an additional $2,358 for the General Fund. This is why the county has been opting out of the tax limitation, and without this additional tax revenue from the current opt out of $150,000 per

Winner Regional Extension Center
A Grain Harvest, Drying and Storage Dilemma Many producers are expecting a fall harvest that will exceed their grain bin capacity, as well as the storage capacity at the local elevator. Planning ahead as to what crops to harvest first, where each crop will be stored, and what to do in the event of crops that require aeration or drying may pay big dividends. The recommended moisture content for short-term storage (less than 6 months) of clean, sound grains, with aeration available if needed, for the most commonly grown crops are as follows; corn – 15.5%, millet – 10%, grain sorghum – 13.5%, soybeans – 13%, non-oil sunflower – 11%, oil sunflower – 10%. If storing for longer than 6 months, lower moisture contents are recommended. Producers are advised to check stored grain on a regular basis for moisture migration, insect activity, mold development and increase in grain temperature. With the large crop expected this fall, many producers may want to begin harvest when the earliest crop is above the recommended moisture content and dry it to a safe level. Weather conditions could also make harvesting some of the crop at higher than recommended moisture contents necessary in order to avoid large field losses. When harvesting grains above the recommended moisture content, the length of time the crop can be stored without excessive dry matter losses is a function of the moisture content and the grain temperature. This is called allowable storage time (AST), and is based on 0.5% dry matter loss from kernels with normal harvest damage. Kernels with greater than normal damage will spoil two to five times faster. At higher moisture levels, AST becomes critical. AST for shelled corn at 20% moisture and 45 degrees F is 67 days, but at 60 degrees F, is only 28 days. A table with AST’s for corn at various moisture contents and grain temperatures is available in the factsheet, ExEx 1014, “Grain Drying Guidelines for a Wet Fall Harvest”: http://pubstorage.sdstate.edu/AgBio_Publications/articles/ExEx1014.pdf. If grain needs to be stored longer than the AST expected with

the moisture content and temperature of the grain, you have two choices, cool the grain with aeration (if possible) or dry the grain. True aeration occurs with an airflow rate of one-tenth cubic foot of air per minute per bushel of grain (0.1 cfm/bu), and will change the temperature of a bin in 100 to 200 hours of fan operation. Higher airflow rates will accomplish the cooling in proportionately less time (0.5 cfm/bu = 20-40 hrs). The grain will only be cooled to near the average outside air temperature during the aeration period. Additional aeration may be required as the outside air temperature drops, until you reach an acceptable AST, based on the grain moisture and temperature. Airflow rates of 1 cfm/bu are required to accomplish natural air drying, but this also takes time, and spoilage is a risk if grain is harvested at high moisture levels. It is important to recognize that the smaller seeded crops like millet, sorghum and sunflower provide greater resistance to airflow than larger seeded crops like corn and soybeans. The same fans and grain depth that are used to aerate corn or soybeans may not adequately aerate the smaller seeded crops. How wet can your crop be and still be safe to bin or pile on the ground? The answer lies in the AST, based on the moisture content and temperature of the grain and how long before you will be able to cool it or dry it to the recommended moisture content for storage.

Over $20,000 raised for COOL at Hermosa meeting
At a recent meeting in Hermosa, SD, over $20,000 was raised to support the fight for country-of-origin labeling (COOL). At the meeting R-CALF USA CEO Bill Bullard and RCALF USA Vice President / Region III Director Bryan Hanson spoke to the crowd of over 70 people about COOL. Bullard and Hanson gave a history of COOL and why after over a decade of fighting for meat to be marked with an exclusive "product of USA" label organizations are still fighting. This meeting was organized by Dean and Delia Johnson of Fairburn, SD, and Rick and Theresa Fox of Hermosa, SD. When asked why they contributed their time and money to organize this fundraiser Delia Johnson explained that it is an issue important to both producers and consumers. "In this day and age of food safety concern, we feel pretty strongly that consumers want the label. We want them to have that information available to make an educated decision at the meat case." Hanson said that while the current fight to label products is focused on meat from livestock imported from Canada and Mexico, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is working aggressively to allow live cattle and meat from Brazil, which has at least twice the number of cattle as the United States. According to Hanson, when Brazil is allowed to import live cattle and beef into the U.S., the pressure on U.S. cattle producers will be far more than they are experiencing now. Bullard added "this fight is because farmers and ranchers want competition, and consumers want to know where their food is from while the meatpackers and their allies simply want to control the market."
