From the U.S. Senate | Senator John Thune
did care much for it. Some areas of the cities should also be avoided if at all possible or driven through only with fully locked doors. In New Orleans, I also avoided walking down dark alleys at night when I had a room in the French Quarter. It wasn’t a dreadfully scary place, but you should keep your eyes open. I know radio antennas were not worth replacing because they routinely got broken off. Certain people there must have a fetish about antennas since you could never keep one on your car for very long. It also was best to leave your car unlocked at night since then no one would bother your vehicle. If you locked it, they figured there was something worthwhile inside so they’d break in. The car thing is not so much a peril. It’s just symptomatic of the kind of people you’re dealing with. Personally, I prefer living here where critters and weather pose the main problems and not other people. Anyway, there are certain hazards around us that we need to be aware of so we can avoid them. Fortunately, I don’t expect much danger any more today since I’m not going anywhere or doing much. I probably should avoid eating anything that will give me indigestion or add any poundage where I don’t need it. Other than that, I should be fairly safe. Nevertheless, I’ll try to keep my wits about me and stay out of trouble. Luckily, my Lord constantly looks after me and helps me out. That takes a lot of worry out of the whole business and gives me peace of mind. I’m very thankful for that.
Lookin’ Around | Syd Iwan
This is the time of year when hornets like to sit on doorknobs and catch you unaware. There is no good reason for them to be there, but they are. I suspect it is just so you can offend them which gives them a good excuse to sting you before flying off in righteous indignation. I have been stung several times just trying to get into the house on a warm fall day in past years, but most of the time I see the nasty yellow and black things beforehand and shoo them away. Alternately, I feel something wiggle in my hand and let go very quickly. Still, sometimes you get stung. This is just one example of the many hazards we have to watch for and try to avoid in life. In this state, ice can be a problem. Most winters we have a spell of cold some time or other with slippery surfaces underfoot. One year I basically fell under the pickup just trying to get out of it. Luckily, I was well padded with thick winter clothing so mostly it was my pride that was injured and not my body. That isn’t always the case. A young friend of ours told us he had fallen on the ice the same week I did, but he had a good reason for it. According to him, he had “selfinduced balance problems” at the time. In other words, he had lingered a little too long at the bar before walking home. Our country roads have been known to be hazardous as well. I don’t know how many times over the years I’ve crept down our steep creek hill in a pickup to avoid slipping over the edge due to either mud or ice. When the roads are like that, I prefer to just stay at home, but that isn’t always completely possible. Occasionally you have to take your heart in your hands and risk it. It isn’t much fun, but I haven’t ever actually had a wreck in the process. I have gotten stuck and had to walk home or for help, but at least the vehicle and I have always both stayed in one piece. Other things to be on the lookout for around here might include rattlesnakes, spiders, blizzards, tornados, and bats. With snakes you soon learn to look where you’re going in warm weather when they are out and about. Don’t walk quickly through tall grass and that sort of thing, and kick stumps over before picking them up. I’ve had enough close calls in the past to keep me watchful. There is still a danger no matter how careful you are as my neighbor found out this summer. She was just weeding a flower patch when she felt pain in her hand and then saw a rattler that had slithered out of its hiding place in some cement blocks and bitten her. She, in consequence, had to make a hurried trip to the doctor and a stay in the hospital for a few days. Bats, by the way, are generally not something that give you any trouble. I just hate them and like to stay out of their way. Almost anywhere you live, you will find risks of some sort or other. The main one in California as far as I can tell is driving on freeways. Those people are crazy drivers and like to go at full speed, bumper to bumper, and then suddenly screech to a halt. This took a little getting used to, and I never
Defending our Hunting and Fishing Traditions
Hunting and fishing are a way of life in South Dakota. Like many across the state, I have great memories of heading out to the stock dam with my Dad, rod in hand, working hard to land a bigger fish than him. Sometimes we caught our limit, sometimes we went home empty-handed—but we always had a great time. While I don’t make it out fishing much anymore, pheasant hunting is a different story. Nothing beats the feeling of knocking down the first pheasant on opening day, walking the field with old friends, and ending the evening telling embellished stories of the “shot of day.” South Dakotans have a great appreciation for the outdoors and for the sporting traditions that not
only provide endless hours of entertainment, but also provide significant economic benefits to our state. However, potential Environment Protection Agency (EPA) regulations could dramatically change the availability of hunting ammunition and fishing tackle for sportsmen and women throughout the country. Some in the environmental community want the EPA to ban traditional lead in hunting ammunition and fishing tackle, increasing the cost and pricing some sportsmen and women out of the market. According to industry experts, metallic non-traditional ammunition makes up only one percent of the market share. In response to these regulations, I introduced legislation along with Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) that would protect ammunition and fishing tackle from unnecessary EPA regulation by excluding it from the
Toxic Substances Control Act. Our bill, the Hunting, Fishing, and Recreational Shooting Protection Act, would instead leave the regulation of these items up to the agencies that currently regulate both ammunition and tackle. Our bill is supported by the National Rifle Association, Safari Club, Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation, Wildlife Forever, and other hunting and fishing groups. As co-chair of the Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus and as an avid outdoorsman, I will continue to work with my colleagues in Congress to put an end to the EPA’s far-reaching and burdensome regulations, and to help ensure that future generations of South Dakotans are not unnecessarily restricted from hunting, fishing, and enjoying the great outdoors.South Dakota and throughout our country.

State Veterans Home
Last Wednesday, I attended the groundbreaking ceremony for the State Veterans Home in Hot Springs. As I spoke with veterans, their families and local leaders, I was reminded again of how important it is to honor and serve those who have fought for our freedom. In South Dakota, we have a history of taking care of our veterans dating back to the Civil War. Thousands of Union veterans came to South Dakota after the Civil War, along with a few Confederate veterans, and seven Civil War Generals were buried in our state. In 1889, the Dakota Territory became the first of all the territories to provide a home for its veterans, but not without struggle. In 1886, Dakotans and the Grand Army of the Republic (GAR), an organization for Civil War veterans, persuaded the territorial Legislature to pass a bill for construction of the soldier’s home, but to their dismay, territorial Gov. Louis Church vetoed the bill. The Dakota GAR spent three years discussing the proposal with the Governor in an attempt to change his mind. The GAR thought their lobbying efforts had been successful until Gov. Church surprised them by vetoing the bill again. The debate continued for several more days until finally, the Legislature overrode the veto. Just nine days after South Dakota became a state, on Nov. 11, 1889, the cornerstone for the first State Veterans Home was laid in Hot Springs. Ironically, that cornerstone was laid on what we now know as Veterans Day – twentynine years before the date gained its significance with the armistice that closed the First World War. Just as it was a challenge for the first South Dakotans to establish the first State Veterans Home, establishing the new home in Hot Springs hasn’t been easy. Our first request for a $23 million federal grant was turned down. Then the bids came in too high. After the state engineer opened the bids for the project, it became apparent that the amount estimated by the architect would not cover the cost of the Veterans Home. We even planned a special legislative session to allocate more funds so the project would not be derailed. To find a solution, I worked with the Lieutenant Governor, the South Dakota Department of Veterans Affairs and members of my staff. We spent many hours considering alternative designs and working with the VA. After months of long meetings, the federal VA agreed to extend our grant, which gave us time to consider alternative designs and bring down the cost of the project without additional state funds. Before the construction of the first State Veterans Home was complete, Gov. Arthur Mellette told the South Dakota Legislature, “It becomes your duty to provide suitably for the maintenance for those who have so richly earned the gratitude of a patriotic people.” No matter the challenges, we must always work to take care of those who have fought for our freedom. Gov. Mellette never said it would be easy, but in South Dakota, we’re known for choosing “the right” over “the easy.” Through hard work and perseverance we will continue to give back to those who have given so much for us.

Nominating South Dakota’s Best and Brightest for our Nation’s Service Academies
Every year, I have the opportunity to nominate young South Dakotans who are interested in attending one of our four U.S. Service Academies. Our nation’s service academies provide young men and women the opportunity to further their education while serving our country. If you, or someone you may know, is interested in applying to the Military Academy at West Point, Naval Academy at Annapolis, Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, or the Merchant Marine Academy in Kings Point, here is some additional information that may be of interest to you. The first step is to submit a precandidate application to the preferred academy. I would also encourage you to contact your high school counselor about your interest in attending a military academy so you can start preparing now by taking a challenging course load and supplementing your application with extracurricular and physical activities. In order to be considered for admission to a service academy, applicants must also receive a nomination from a member of Congress. You can download a nomination application from my website (http://noem.house.gov) and may also call my Sioux Falls office at 605-275-2868 for application details. In addition to completing the application, I request that applicants submit the following information: a cover letter detailing why you would like a nomination to a service academy; a list of extracurricular activities, honors, awards, employment and current coursework; a high school transcript; ACT and/or SAT scores; a minimum of three letters of recommendation and any copies of correspondence you’ve received from the academies. I’m proud to say that all applicants receive an interview with my academy nomination board. Interviews are held the first Saturday in December in both Sioux Falls and Rapid City. We are also able to conduct phone interviews if you are unable to interview inperson due to circumstances beyond your control. Nomination applications are due on October 31st so it’s important to get started now if you haven’t already! I encourage applicants to submit applications to all three Congressional offices in order to better their chances of receiving a nomination. Academies make the final decision on acceptance and announce appointments next spring. I would also like to publicly thank the following eleven South Dakotans who serve on my academy nomination boards. I truly appreciate the fact that each one not only gives up a full day of their spare time to meet with applicants, but many also travel long distances to be there. These individuals have a vested interest and passion in selecting our nation’s next generation of leaders and have extensive experience in education, business and the military. East River Academy Board: Annie Falk of Aberdeen, Dr. Blake Curd of Sioux Falls, Teddi Mueller of Sioux Falls, Cameron Corey of Watertown, Ken Bjur of Aberdeen, Glen Herrick of Sioux Falls. West River Academy Board: Dan Hunter of Rapid City, Lynn Kendall of Black Hawk, Mike Pelly of Rapid City, Gayle Thom of Rapid City, Scott Odenbach of Spearfish. Spread the word about this incredible opportunity and please don’t hesitate to reach out to my office if we can answer any additional questions about the academy application process. generation away from extinction.” I encourage you to remember those words and appreciate the nature of the freedoms we enjoy.

The Path to Understanding the Proper Diet
We have been on the path to understanding the proper diet that prevents heart attacks or strokes. Although most believe a life style of moderate physical activity and avoidance of smoke is important in preventing atherosclerosis, there remains no consistent answer to which diet is most protective in preventing early aging of blood vessels. For years we thought it was a no-egg, low fat, and more vegetarian diet, but in recent years experts have started endorsing more meat. It began when a fad, lowcarbohydrate, weight-loss diet became clearly more successful than the standard more vegetarian diet. Reported in the medical journals, researchers found that those eating less bread, potatoes, and sweets lost more weight and felt better than those eating less meats and fats. Alas, after a year both groups were equally unsuccessful in keeping the weight off, but we learned from it. Add to this what we’ve known for years about the medical conditions of food intolerance. There is intolerance to lactose, which is the natural sugar of milk, and celiac disease, which is intolerance to gluten, a protein in many cereals especially wheat. Anthropologists tell us these problems did not occur in hunter-gather societies until about 10,000 years ago when farming developed and humanity became exposed to animal milk and wheat. It is also intriguing that studies of twentieth century hunter-gatherers, whose diets are about 65% wild game meat and 35% gathered plant food, show them to be generally free of the signs and symptoms of cardiovascular disease. Could it be then that the eating habits of our ancestral pre-farming Paleolithic people living 2.5 million years ago until 10,000 years ago are guiding us along a path to prevent heart attacks and stroke in modern humans? Those who don’t swallow this theory advise us that back then, most people had to walk about an hour a day to survive, had smaller portions of food when they had food at all, and that most didn’t live past 30 years of age anyway. These contrarians state that 500 generations of living with an agrarian diet has been enough to evolve tolerance to lactose and gluten with only an occasional throwback who doesn’t tolerate our modern diet of milk and bread. I think the path to preventing a heart attack is not by avoiding meat and fat, or even milk and bread, but rather by simply eating smaller portions and daily walking along any path.

Gateway News | Lola Joyce Riggins, 837-2053 (Let it ring.)
Lola Joyce Riggins accompained Virginia Coller to Martin to attend the funeral service for a former Kadoka resident, Ray Young. May we extend our sympathy to his family. Quilting was held Wednesday afternoon in the community room. Lova Bushnell, Marie Addison, Shirley Josserand, Margie Peters, and Susie Bauman were busy getting more quilts done. The craft club held their meeting later that day. They were crafting very interesting witch’s hats for Halloween. Very nice and crafty to use them for the big holiday. And later yet, the cemetery board held their meeting and an extended discussion was over some issues and how to solve them. I had the permission to visit with each group briefly. Remember these people keep up with the happenings so don’t forget that they need encouragement and support. Lola Joyce enjoyed Sunday evening meal at the home of Chris and Anitalyn Riggins. Dylan, Krista and I enjoyed a game of Cribbage. I started the game with bang, but then Dylan started getting some good cards and no one could compete with him, so he won. It’s always fun to see how the cards will fall. Friends and family gathered at the community room on Sunday for a baby shower for Presley James Carlson, daughter of Luke and Geri. Thought: When was honey ever made with one bee in the hive? Don’t wait to strike till the iron is hot, but make it hot by striking. Reagan Ison of Ft. Worth, TX, is spending a couple weeks with her mom, Vicki Wilson, after coming to Kadoka because of the death of her father, Stu Wilson. Stu’s funeral and burial was last week. Other relatives in town for the services included Reagan’s husband, Terry; Willard Wilson and family of Eastover, SC, who left for their home on Friday; Mary Jane Knight and friend, Rocky Harris of Little Rock, Arkansas; Dennis and Melody Headlee from Pleasantville, IA; Karen and Ray Sorensen of Albert Lea, MN; and Steve Wilson from Wichita Falls, TX. Deb Moor and Diana Coller attended the South Dakota Library Assoc. conference in Sioux Falls last week. They left on Sept. 22 and returned the 25th. While in Sioux Falls Diana visited with her son, Nathan Schnee.

Wanda Swan and Sydne Lenox drove to Rapid City on Thursday where Wanda kept an eye appointment. They enjoyed lunch with Beth (Jeffords) Boersma at the hospital cafeteria and then visited Wanda’s sister and Beth’s mom, Marjorie Jeffords, at the There’s a Hart Assisted Living Facility. Marj is doing fine and likes to ask about all her friends in Kadoka. Former Kadoka resident, Sue Erickson of Springfield, died in the St. Michael Hospital in Tyndall on Thursday, September 26. Sue’s husband, Harvey, was a teacher and administrator at Kadoka High School several years ago. She is survived by Harvey and five sons. Her funeral was Monday at the United Church of Christ in Springfield. Another successful homecoming celebration was held in Kadoka on Friday with a parade, Punt, Pass and Kick contest, pancake supper and a win at the football game. The weather was a little chilly and some rain fell, but all in all many people enjoyed the day.

Norris News | Marjorie Anne Letellier, 462-6228
The biggest news of the week is the six miles stretch of road between Norris and Corn Creek. Folks in this area are thrilled to see the Reece Bligh Memorial road being worked on, FINALLY. Some of us were checking the progress daily. It was fun to even follow the pilot car! That road was so bad that it always reminded JaLynn of being back in Russia with all the dangerous pot holes. What is really nuts is, it has a 25 mile per hour speed limit and everybody drives 55 on it now. It had a 55 mph limit on it before everyone was risking their life if they drove 25 on it. Monday, the James Letelliers went to Valentine, NE, for supplies and were supper guests that evening of their daughter, Julie, at Kilgore. Kilgore was getting a good rain while they were there and it rained all the way to Parmelee on their way home. Remember, that Ken and Karen Toews of Kadoka are having Kids Bible Class on Tuesday after school this year instead of Thursdays. It will be held at the Ben Looking White Memorial Hall in Blackpipe. Everyone is invited. June Ring went into White River to donate blood on Tuesday. Dan and Susan Taft and Morgan made a trip to Pierre where Morgan kept an appointment. Evan and Dorothy visited Maxine Allard one evening this week. Gene and Bertie Schoon of Corsica arrived at the Gale Letellier home and were houseguests for a few days last week. Norris School news: Parentteacher conferences will be held Thursday evening from 4 to 8 p.m. Please attend and get a progress report on your student. Interested parents make better students. Thursday, Alberta Allard visited in the June Ring home. The Tafts took in the tri-angular volleyball games at White River on Thursday. Kadoka and Pine Ridge were the other two teams and White River came out the winners in both the junior varisty and varsity games. Friday, two cars of gals left this area for Watertown for the State Master Gardener Update. Ladies attending were: JoAnn Letellier of Norris, Donna Adrian of White River, Noma Sazama of Mission, Ila Tucker of Wood, Donita Denke of Long Valley, Rosa Lee Styles of Draper and Mabel Schmit of Chamberlain. Noma Sazama received a gold star badge for her years of service and achievements in the Master Gardener program. Morgan Taft went with a friend to Rapid City to help her celebrate her birthday on Friday. Morgan returned home on Sunday. June Ring visited in the Jean Kary home on Friday. The gals are working on their entries for the South Dakota History Conference coming up in Rapid City soon. Maxine Allard has been busy and she tied two lap robes this week. Friday, the James Letelliers were among the large crowd who attended all the activities at the Sunshine Bible Academy homecoming including the dedication of the new gym. Jim was in the “Parade of the Decades” representing the 1950s classes, and their daughter, LuAnne Beckwith, was among those representing the 80s and their little grandchildren representing the future. Speaking of homecomings, Norris has ties to several royalty crowned this last weekend. First off, congratulations to Taylor Merchen who was crowned queen at the homecoming held in Kadoka on Friday. Taylor is the daughter of Tim and Tammy Merchen of Norris. Chandler Sudbeck was crowned king at Kadoka. Chandler’s dad, Jody, keeps us supplied with potato chips down here. David Paul was crowned king at Sunshine Bible Academy. David is the son of Daniel and Tresa (Bauman) Paul of Carson, ND. Norris was home to Tresa when she was crowned queen at Kadoka 25 years ago, too. David’s grandparents are Dave and Sandi Bauman formerly of Norris. At Rapid City Christian Jordan Hunt was crowned king of their festivities. Jordan is the son of Jim and Joni (Berry) Hunt of Faith. Joni is the daughter of Keith and Bunny Berry formerly of Norris. Earlier this month, Dusti Good Shield daughter of Audi Larvie Black Bull of Norris was crowned at White River this year, too. It is living proof that small communities build leaders. We are so proud of our young people, we can’t keep our buttons on around here. Andrea Beckwith spent the weekend visiting her sister, Erica, in Omaha at Grace University. Erica played in a soccer game while she was there, too. The Jason Burma’s arrived in Norris early Saturday morning to antelope hunt. They were thrilled to get a buck shortly after they started hunting, too.
Belvidere News | Syd Iwan, 381-2147
Bill and Norma Headlee celebrated their fortieth wedding anniversary with a family gathering in the Black Hills near Hill City this weekend. All their kids were able to be there, namely Anora, Corale, Monica, Donella, and Billy. They brought various spouses and kids as well. Norma’s sister and brother were also there, Barb Schroeder and Tom DeVries. Tom’s daughters, Sarah DeVries and Trisha Bork, came too. A relative originally from Holland, Aaron Boer, was there with two friends, Marteen and Franco. Aaron lived with the Wally DeVries family for a time when he first came to this country and while going to medical school to become a doctor. He now is from California but also owns some hotels in Amsterdam. The event started on Friday when many members of the family came in time to see the buffalo roundup in the nearby park. It ended on Sunday. Norma said their forty years together were well celebrated. It was busy last weekend at the Headlee home as well due to the death of Stu Wilson and services for him on Sunday at Philip. Stu’s wife, Vicki, is Bill’s sister. As a result, Stu and Vicki’s kids were here, Willard and Reagan, and their families and some stayed at Bill and Norma’s. Some of them also had team and wagon rides thanks to Tom DeVries with his rig. All four of Bill and Norma’s daughters came for their uncle’s funeral but only came for the day and didn’t stay over. Dave and Jean Calhoon drove to Vivian on Sunday to help grandson Carter celebrate his seventh birthday. Son Josh went along as did Jean’s mom, Marie Addison. Carter is Dixie Sue’s son and has two brothers, James who is almost 16 and Evan who is 2. The birthday was duly celebrated. Dana DeVries gained her eighth grandchild on Tuesday last week when her daughter, Kelli Halls, and her husband had a son born to them. Dana now has five grandsons and three granddaughters. The baby came with the cord wrapped around his neck, but that didn’t seem to cause any problems. Dana said he seems to have some red in his hair which would be a first for her. Pat Fortune is now back in the area after having finished his time in the Marines, most recently at Camp Pendleton in California. He, despite some vehicle problems in Cody, WY, was able to arrive in Rapid City last week with his wife and son, Tatiana and Fionnlagh, the latter being pronounced more like Finley. Pat and family will be living in the basement apartment of the house owned by his sister, Francie Davis, and family. Pat is currently looking for work and hopes to get into law enforcement or security since he spent the last four years being in the military police. Pat and his family had planned to come to Belvidere to see everyone this weekend, but their dad, Bob Fortune, and his wife, Ruth, were already in Rapid City at the Stockgrowers Convention. As a result, they all just went over to the convention on Friday night and had supper there with Bob and Ruth. On Saturday, Francie and Chad celebrated Chad’s birthday with an outing to Deadwood. Chad has now started working with an electrician in Rapid City, and Francie is cracking jokes about fried electricians. Francie also said her brother, Les Red Paint, has moved back to the ranch recently. He has been living at Yankton for the last several years and working at the sale barn. The sale barn has downsized so Les needs to find other employment. Larry Grimme went to Wanblee last Sunday and performed one of his original songs at church there. This Sunday evening, he went to church in Murdo and sang another one. Larry said his garden is still going strong, but he doesn’t really need much more produce since his freezer and pantry are already full. As a result, he has been learning about the blessing of sharing his produce with others. Wade Fox said they’ve been building a new fence line to keep their cattle from crossing the river. The river has been high enough recently to discourage cattle from crossing, but that isn’t always the case. Last weekend, Wade and Patty and kids went to the Sergeant Ranch and Resort near Pierre to attend a benefit for Clay Hindman, who landed on his neck at a recent rodeo and has medical bills as a result. The event had a fishing derby and a silent auction. It raised quite a bit of money to help with the bills. Chuck and Merry Willard attended the Stockgrowers Convention in Rapid City this weekend. They stayed there overnight. Other locals they saw at the convention included Kenny Fox, Bob Fortune, and Mark DeVries. Back at home, they are still working on moving a fence which is getting close to done but will be delayed slightly since they are out of supplies. At church on Sunday, Chuck and Merry had just gotten out of their car when they heard the doors click shut. This had happened once before for no apparent reason. Although the keys were left in the car, Merry had her purse with her which contained the phone number for On-Star. She called them, and they unlocked the doors within a few minutes. While Chuck and Merry were in Rapid, Tom DeVries came down, did chores, and looked after things. Jim and Fayola Mansfield drove to Sundance, WY, this weekend to attend another football game that their grandson, Thomas, was in. It wasn’t the most enjoyable game for them due to it being cold and wet. They spent part of the time in their vehicle trying to stay warm. Fayola said there were even a few snowflakes coming down although no accumulation. The team that came to play Thomas’ team was from the other side of the Bighorns so they might have had fun getting back home. Les Huber was in Belvidere this weekend with his friend, Teresa. He has been hauling cement recently for construction and repairs on I-90, first near Wall and also near Sturgis. He has also been finishing up a painting project at Williston, ND, where they are expanding their water plant to deal with the influx of people into the oil fields. Another painting project on the horizon is the courthouse building in Rapid City.
Work has begun on the six mile road from Norris to Corn Creek. Pavement is the next step.
Earlier this week, travelers had to follow a pilot car to get from Norris to Corn Creek. They were kept busy, too.

The 2013 homecoming week was a great week of school spirit and a bunch of traditions and activities, and the Kougar football team was able to top the week off with a victory over the Philip Scotties 34-18. The Kougars opened the scoring in the first quarter with a 1 yard run by Lane Patterson to put us on top in the first quarter 6-0. The second play of the second quarter Patterson once again punched in another 1 yard run with Chandlier Sudbeck adding the two-point
conversion to bring the score to 14-0. Later in the second quarter after a Kougar turnover, the Scotties took the ball on the next play and busted off a long run of their own to bring the score to 14-6. That was as close as it would be as Chandlier Sudbeck rattled off a nice 41 yard run of his own to bring the score to Kadoka 20 Philip 6 at halftime. The second half the Kougars once again behind some great blocking and running were able to punch in our fourth touchdown of the night and Lane Patterson’s third to bring the score to 26-6 at the end of the third quarter. Early
in the fourth quarter the Scotties were on offense, Logan Ammons pressured the quarterback and Logan Christensen intercepted the football and returned it 30 yards for a touchdown. A pass from Patterson to Ammons for the two-point conversion brought the score to 34-6. After that the Scotties were able to punch in two late game touchdowns which brought the final score to 34-18. It was evident early on with the wet conditions in the game that we were going to have to keep the ball on the ground offensively and play good team defense to stop the Scottie run game. Our offensive
line really did a good job this week controlling the line of scrimmage. Our offensive line consists of Logan Christensen, Gavin DeVries, True Buchholz, Herbie O’Daniel, and Logan Ammons. Along with some great lead blocking by Dylan Riggins, Brady Jandreau, and Sam Pretty Bear, we were able to open up some good holes and run the ball effectively. Chandlier Sudbeck was the work horse for the Kougars as he carried the ball 32 times for 233 yards and 1 touchdown. Lane Patterson had a nice night on the ground chipping away yards as he had 12 carries for 30 yards and 3 touchdowns. Brady Jandreau carried the ball 4 times for 19 yards, and Dylan Riggins had 2 carries for 8 yards. Defensively I thought we did a good job of playing team defense. Time and time again we had 3, 4, 5, or even 6 guys in on just about every tackle. Turnovers are always a big stat as we had four of our own, but our defense forced 3 as well. Chandlier Sudbeck and Aaron Janis each had key fumble recoveries, and Logan Christensen had an interception that he ran back 30 yards for a defensive touchdown. I was pleased with the way our kids came to play this week as I felt we blocked very well on offense and on defense we did a nice
job being relentless tacklers and pressuring Philip’s offense. We played some of our best team defense of the year. We would like to thank everyone for their encouragement and support for us throughout this year’s homecoming and this entire season. It’s been a fun first half of
the season as we turn our focus now on the second half of the season and in particular this week on the White River Tigers. We will be on the road in White River this week, with a kick off time of 6:00 p.m. MT. --by Coach Eisenbraun

Destiny Dale had 21 digs. “The first match versus Pine Ridge was poorly played; we simply weren't ready to play and were defeated handily by Pine Ridge,” said Coach Hutchinson. “In the second match against White River our play improved greatly, and we had a good first four sets of play. In the 5th set White River got off to a good start serving and jumped out to a big lead. We couldn't recover, and lost that set 15-5 and the match 3-2.” The next action for the Lady Kougars will be Tuesday, October 8 at Presho.

Traveling with their pet Minuteman missile
Kadoka Press - Thursday, October 3, 2013 -
bill signed into law
When driving home on Friday afternoon, September 24, Larry and Jo Johnston were surprised to when they turned on to Belvidere Road, just past the cemetery, when they came across a pickup and horse trailer backed into a pasture opening. Thinking may be a neighbor was trying to load some livestock into the trailer, they slowed down and saw a grizzly bear! They visited with the two ladies who were with the bear and learned they were returning from shooting a tuna commercial in Idaho. They were headed back to Canada with their 15 year-old grizzly bear that they had raised since it was five weeks old. They had stopped to clean the bedding in the trailer and give the bear a snack. Pictured is the bear and one of his owners feeding him.
United States Senators Tim Johnson and John Thune and Congresswoman Kristi Noem announced on September 20 that legislation to facilitate construction of a visitor center at the Minuteman Missile National Historic Site was signed into law by President Obama. The law will transfer approximately 29 acres of National Forest Service land to the National Park Service to construct a visitor facility and provide parking. “This law will allow construction of the visitor center to begin shortly at the Minuteman Missile National Historic Site” said Johnson. “This is the first unit of the National Park Service dedicated exclusively to Cold War events. With the visitor’s center, the Park Service will be able to tell the story of this historic site and the role South Dakota played in the Cold War.” “I am pleased the president has cleared the way for the development of a visitor’s center highlighting the important role and historic significance of the Minuteman Site,” said Thune. “The center will make a piece of South Dakota’s past more accessible to students of history from around the globe.”
“Now that this bill has been signed into law, plans for a new visitor center can move forward, allowing South Dakotans and visitors from all over the country to visit this historic site and learn more about the history of the Minuteman Missile,” said Noem. “The Minuteman Missile National Historic Site helps tell the story of how the Minuteman played a role in bringing peace during tense relations between the United States and former Soviet Union. I’m pleased the House, Senate and the president took swift action on this common-sense bill.” The launch control facility and missile silo that make up the Minuteman Missile National Historic Site were preserved to illustrate the history of the Cold War and the role the Air Force’s Minuteman II Missile defense system played in efforts to preserve world peace. The new law builds upon a law passed in 1999 that established Minuteman Missile as a National Historic Site. The land transfer provided in the new law allows for the construction of a visitor center and administrative facility at Exit 131 off of I-90. The bill would also transfer 3.65 acres near the missile silo for visitor parking and other administrative uses. Congress provided funding for the construction of the visitor center when the site was established. The Minuteman Missile consists of the Delta-01 launch facility and the Delta-09 missile silo, located about 11 miles from one another on Interstate 90.

Once again in too short a time, our families would like to express our sincerest thanks following the loss of our mother, grandmother, greatgrandmother and mother-in-law, Bonnie Riggins. We begin our thanks with all the phone calls and visits from her friends while in the hospital, Golden Hills and at home. She truly cherished each and every one of them. The thoughts, prayers, food, flowers, phone calls and visits from friends and family that we received after our loss will never be forgotten. Thank you Father Bryan for the comforting service, the Catholic ladies for the lunch after the services, to Samantha Christenson for sharing her beautiful voice; Zane Riggins and Robert Riggins for the readings during the service; Joel and Kelly Stephens for being ushers and the Rush family for their help and compassion. A heartfelt thank you to the grandsons and granddaughters for being pallbearers-you were grandma’s blessings. Thank you to all that gathered at the ranch following the burial. It seems healing begins when you have time for fellowship and memories. God bless each and every one of you. Awake, north wind, and come, south wind. Blow on my garden, that its fragrance may spread everywhere. Let my beloved come into His garden and taste its choice fruits. Song of Solomon 4:16 Stephen & Linda Riggins & families Marla & Dan Nelson & families Ella & Troy Hindman & families Sterling & Jill Riggins & families

Soil Sampling and Fertilizer Rates Twenty-five short years ago, producers were asking about the value of fertilizing wheat planted back on wheat stubble, and fertilizing wheat planted on fallow was virtually unheard of. Due to years of removing fertilizer nutrients, no-till farming practices, continuous cropping and the pursuit of higher yields, most crops receive one or more forms of commercial fertilizer. There are many philosophy’s used to decide if producers need to apply fertilizer, and if so, what nutrient, what product(s) and how much. These may range from a seat of the pants approach like applying what the neighbor does up to more sound approaches. Although neither soil testing nor fertilizing is an exact science, soil testing is the best way to evaluate the fertility status of a field or of areas within a field. If you are going to base fertilizer rates on soil test results, it pays to follow recommended practices. When you send a sample off to the laboratory for plant-available nutrient analysis, a good soil sample that adequately represents your field or area gives you good results. A poor sample will only lead to an analysis of limited value and be a waste of your time and money. Testing soils even every second or third year is much better than not testing at all, and allows you to identify trends in fertility levels. For more information on soil sampling, ask for factsheet FS935, “Recommended Soil Sampling Methods for South Dakota”, at your Regional Extension Center. Drought Risk Management Workshops South Dakota ranchers who received good rainfall in 2013 know it’s only a matter of time before they’re dealing with drought again. SDSU Extension will host four Drought Risk Management Workshops. These workshops are designed to help ranchers develop and write drought management and mitigation plans for their own operations. Ranchers will receive the tools they need to create a drought plan that fits their own needs. The one-day hands-on workshops will focus on many aspects of drought risk management, including: why you need a written drought plan, and how to do it; weather and climate monitoring; measuring grassland productivity; using pasture, rangeland, forage – rainfall index insurance; SD Drought Tool and efficiency of soil infiltration; and best management practices for range management.
