October has come to a close and so has the first
quarter of school. At the High School and Middle
School, quarterly progress reports will be sent out
shortly, but the official grades will not be taken until
the end of the semester. A progress report will be sent
home with the students and will include the username and password in order for you to check your
student(s)’ grades online with the Infinite Campus
parent portal. Girls’ Junior High Basketball has
started and is coached by Brad Stone. High School
Girls Basketball will start on November 25 and High
School Boys basketball will start on December 2.
During the month of October, our students were
able to compete at Stanley County in the Acalympics,
an academic competition, with challenges held in the
following subject areas: math, social studies, science,
and English. The school had students represent

Kadoka at The National FFA Convention in
Louisville, Kentucky in the farm business management competition. During the month our music program was also active as we had our Region VII
Honors Band competition and also had representatives from our school participate in the All-State chorus concert in Sioux Falls. The eighth to twelfth
grades had the opportunity to present their service
learning projects to the Service Learning Board, and
I am excited about the project proposals from each
class; make sure you ask your child about their class
project. If you have any questions or concerns, please
contact me at george.seiler@k12.sd.us or call me at

Lookin’ Around | Syd Iwan
“It’s a nice day today,” wife
Corinne told me the other morning when I got up. “That’s good.” I
replied. “I’m into nice.” And I am.
I’m into nice weather, nice scenery,
and nice people among other
things. Nice is generally better
than dreadful, awful, and nasty. I
like nice.
Concerning nice weather, South
Dakota, as you know, has weather
that is extremely variable. It
might be beautiful one day and
awful the next. It changes a lot.
The contrasts, though, might actually help us rejoice in a fine day
when we’ve just been through
some that weren’t. I somewhat
pity those poor people in Hawaii
who simply have to endure one
beautiful day right after another.
They probably don’t even notice
how grand it is since they have
nothing to compare it to. Here, we
might get a nasty blizzard in early
October with heavy rain, snow,
and strong winds like we did this
year. The best thing to do while all
that is going on is to hunker down
by the fire with a good book and
ignore the outside world completely. Then, when the next day it
all starts to melt and the sun
comes out again, you can get all
lighthearted and giddy with relief.
It’s the contrast that does it.
Now when it comes to beautiful
scenery, I’m strictly a man of the
prairie. Nothing is finer than an
uncluttered view of rolling hills
and grass. Looking out over all
that in the spring when every-

From the U.S. Senate | Senator John Thune

thing is green and lush just makes
the heart swell up so much that it
barely fits in the chest. There are,
of course, pretty things to see almost anywhere you go, but in
more-populated areas you have to
look in fits and starts. Maybe
there’s a flower garden that has a
lot going for it, or a nice set of
buildings, but you have to concentrate on a particular area instead
of having beauty all around you
and as far as the eye can see.
I once traveled around parts of
California with an excellent artist
who had previously been my captain in the Navy. He kept pointing
to things of beauty as we drove,
and they were certainly there. He
proved it by painting a lot of eyecatching pictures of those very
scenes. If you looked around,
though, there was clutter everywhere and way too many people.
It was distracting enough to me
that I couldn’t enjoy the scenery as
much as did my artist friend. Like
I said, I’m strictly a prairie man.
Oh, I guess I’m also somewhat
of a seagoing man since there isn’t
much clutter or many distracting
eyesores when you’re out in the
middle of the ocean. There is just
water that goes on and on with
blue skies above and the occasional fish or bird. I like it quite a
bit and probably because it isn’t
too much different than the
prairie in that both sometimes appear to go on forever.
Nice people, of course, take the
cake. You can endure quite a bit
when you’re surrounded by kind,

helpful, good-hearted folks. We are
particularly lucky in this area to
have so many of them. Oh, sure.
We have a few stinkers and
grouches, but they seem to be in
the minority. Most people you
come across are just alright.
If we’re speaking about pleasant things, though, we should
probably mention good food. A lot
of enjoyment comes through the
taste buds. Unfortunately, many
of us enjoy a little more food than
we should, but it can be hard to resist those items that are so very
tasty. I am one who can and does
eat and enjoy most foods so I have
to be particularly watchful. What
is worse, Thanksgiving and
Christmas are coming up, and
both seem to put heavy emphasis
on the culinary arts. Maybe, with
a little luck, we can remember to
take small portions and eat them
slowly so the same amount of enjoyment can be had from a lessfattening amount.
If you get too much goodness
going on around you, oddly
enough, there is some danger of
overload. Excessive amounts of
anything can cause a reaction.
Cuteness and sweetness, for example, need to be taken in small
amounts. Too much of either and
you may have to go roll in the mud
or something to counter it all.
So, as store checkout people
often say, “Have a nice day.” That’s
fairly good advice. Let’s go on out
and do that very thing. After all, I
personally and definitely am into
nice, and I’d bet you are too.

From the U.S. Senate | Senator Tim Johnson
Honoring the Sacrifice
and Service of South
Dakota’s Veterans
South Dakotans are familiar
with sacrifice. In many ways, it is
a historical trait of this great
state. Over 71,000 veterans call
South Dakota home today, participating in a heritage which dates
to the settling of the state itself.
In the years following the Civil
War, many veterans migrated
westward to the Dakota Territory
in search of the promise that the
prairie offered. Towns like Gettysburg, Sturgis, and Custer, named
for the decisive battles and daring
leaders, grew from this influx of
veteran settlers and today remind
us of this heritage. It was our nation’s veterans who originally
helped make this great state pos-

During World Wars I and II,
more than 90,000 South Dakotans
fought in Europe and the Pacific
in defense of the American dream.
Sixty-five thousand served in
World War II alone, one-tenth of
the state’s total population at that
time. After the war, our parents
and grandparents, veterans of the
Greatest Generation, returned
home triumphant and helped
usher in an era of unprecedented
prosperity. We still live in debt to
these great deeds.
This tradition of selflessness
and sacrifice for kin and country
in time of need has continued unabatedly, decade after decade, to
the present day. Whether it was
Korea or Vietnam, Iraq or
Afghanistan, during peacetime or
war, South Dakotans have always
answered the call to serve. Veter-

ans are an integral part of our
communities. They’re our grandparents, parents, children, neighbors, teachers, and friends. They
act with courage, humility, and
dedication in defense of the communities they cherish. More often
than not, they justify their service
as “just doing my job.” They are
our humble heroes.
As we celebrate this Veterans
Day, it is important to honor,
thank, and support those who
have sacrificed and who continue
to make sacrifices in service to our
country. These exceptional individuals enable us to enjoy the freedoms we hold dear, and they
deserve all the recognition and
support we can offer. Please join
me in honoring South Dakota’s
and our nation’s veterans, not just
on Veterans Day, but every day.

All across South Dakota there
are children in need of a loving
and safe foster home.
Helping fill the need for foster
families in South Dakota is something that both the Governor and

with this initiative.

parents. So far we’ve had 200 families request more information!
As a former teacher and librarian, a mother of three and a
grandmother of two, I know how
important it is to provide children
with meaningful connections, unconditional support, guidance and
love. These are the keys to helping
our children reach their full potential and find success in life.
Foster parents provide opportunities for youth to stay connected

with their family, friends, culture,
school and community. They also
provide a positive impact for children while their families work
through difficult circumstances.
Right now, children across
South Dakota are waiting for
someone to open their home and
their hearts and be their foster
parent. Will you be the one?

It started with 17 hours of rain.
Then, the temperatures dropped
and the 70-mile-an-hour winds set

three days.
Hundreds of South Dakota families dug out of the snow to find
that tens of thousands of cattle had

has done so in nearly 20 years.

try with pride and dignity protecting our democracy at home and
abroad. We owe these brave heroes a tremendous debt. The
South Dakotans who have courageously answered the call to serve
and defend our freedoms are heroes to all Americans, but they
have more importantly played an
instrumental role in shaping who
we are as South Dakotans. Their
selflessness is reflected in the values that have come to define our
great state.
As we spend time with family
and friends in the upcoming holiday season, we should take a moment to reflect upon those who
have sacrificed on our behalf and
renew our dedication to their care.
I encourage all South Dakotans to
honor the sacrifice of our veterans
and keep the brave members of
our military and their families in
our thoughts and prayers as they
continue to serve on our behalf.

differences that must be worked
out before a final bill is sent to the
president for his signature.
As a member of this Conference
Committee, I am focused on providing some certainty for South
Dakota producers. One of the provisions I will be pushing for is the
livestock disaster program that I
authored, which was included in
the House’s version of the farm bill.
This will not only guarantee that
disaster relief will be available for
the entirety of the next farm bill,
but it will also work retroactively to
help mitigate some of the damages
resulting from last month’s blizzard.
Coming from a farming family, I
also know how important a strong
crop insurance program is to ensuring some level of certainty and I
have made it clear to the Conference Committee that this must be
the cornerstone of the farm bill.
Including important sodsaver
provisions that protect our native
grasslands and ensuring farm policy works for our Native American
community are also very important
components of the farm bill.
Finally, if you go to the Black
Hills, we have dead and dying trees
left from insect infestations that
turn our forests into a tinder box. I
am advocating strongly for efforts

that give us the tools we need to address the pine beetle epidemic.
While there are differences in
how the House and Senate believe
our farm policy should look, it was
clear from last week’s Conference
Committee meeting that all the
conferees agree we must strive for
a farm bill that provides certainty
from the field to the fork and the
pasture to the plate. After all, uncertainty in farm policy also means
uncertainty for families at the grocery store. Already, news organizations are reporting that without a
farm bill, milk prices could rise to
as much as $8 a gallon. Not everyone may farm, but everyone eats.
Finishing a farm bill is not going
to be easy. But I come from a farm
family. I have lost crops to hail and
drought. I have lost cattle personally, although never anything close
to the magnitude of what west
river families are experiencing. I
have also visited with a number of
South Dakota ranchers since the
October snowstorm. I’ve seen their
losses firsthand and I am committed to giving them the help they
need to recover and the certainty
they deserve to move forward.
It is time we finish our work and
pass a farm bill. Our producers
need it, and so do American consumers.

Among my favorite opportunities as U.S. Senator, is the privilege to welcome honor flights from
South Dakota to Washington,
D.C., to visit the war memorials
on the national mall. I know firsthand the sacrifice made by our nation’s veterans because my own
father, Harold, is a decorated
Navy pilot who served during

of these veterans have had limited
opportunities to visit these important monuments—making the trip
to D.C. an important and emotional experience. When I escort

We know that in South Dakota
162 people have obtained separate
prescriptions for narcotics from
more than ten physicians/PAs/NPs
over only 8 months, and 55 have
tapped at least six prescribers for
such meds using six or more different pharmacies.
We also know that since 2004,
poisoning deaths in South Dakota
from abuse or wrongful use of certain prescription drugs have averaged at 19 per year, mostly due to
narcotics and opioids, and that
number appears to be on the rise.
Still, appropriate prescribing of
narcotic pain medicine provides
for many an escape from suffering.
Rest assured that physicians and
care providers will and should prescribe pain relievers without hesitation when such medicines are
needed to help people in trouble.
But with all that compassionate
care comes excessive prescribing.
In fact, the Prescription Drug
Monitoring Program tells us that
in the first eight months of this
year in South Dakota there has
been dispensed more than eleven
million tabs of the specific medication hydrocodone with acetamino-

phen or Vicodin. That is 13 tabs
for every South Dakotan. Other
abused medications commonly
sold on the streets include zolpidem or Ambien, lorazepam or Ativan,
Ritalin/Concerta, and oxycodone
with acetaminophen or Percocet,
to name a few.
The harms from drug abuse extend beyond the illicit user to
those living nearby. The surrounding community so exposed has increased crime and violence, child
and spouse abuse, motor vehicle
accidents, sexually spread diseases, fetal malformations in children, and deaths due to accidental
and intentional overdose.
We've got trouble, trouble, trouble right here in South Dakota.
This is a call to all physicians and
pharmacies out there who are targeted by drug seekers. Do not fall
for it. Use the PDMP, be aware of
the danger to patients and society,
and just say no when you should.
And to those who are seeking illicit drugs, know that we are
watching you.

she can catch up on some work at

winter such as the camel, some
buffalo etc. She said the camel
seems to get along just fine during
the winters. It is able to run and
frolic on ice and snow and keep its
footing just fine. The camel has
given her a few tense moments
when it sticks its head too close to
the cab of the tractor when she’s
running it. Apparently, Clarence

from the tractor so it sees the tractor as possibly carrying treats.

building a deer blind by the creek
in preparation for the hunting season. He likes to see how close he
can get to the deer and has the patience to wait quite a while in a
blind for them to come to him. Earlier this week, Dave drove to
Aaron Iverson’s over south of the

He has been inspecting brands
now since about 1974 although he

Larry and Joy Dolezal spent a
good part of Sunday helping with
the holiday festival at the auditorium in Kadoka. This is a benefit
for the nursing home, and Larry is
on the board of that organization.
They helped in the kitchen and
wherever needed. Joy said they
had a good turnout and should
have raised some useful funds for
the home. There was plenty of
good help to get everything done.
Back at home, the Dolezals are
trying to combine some milo.
Those efforts have been hampered
by wet conditions and mud. Joy
also said 1880 Town closed this
past week with the town itself
closing a little before the gas station part. Now it is all sealed up
for the winter. Scott Key (yes, he’s
related to Francis Scott Key who
wrote the national anthem) lives
on the place year round and looks
after things during the off season.
Betty Kusick attended the holiday festival after church on Sunday. She mostly went to enjoy the
dinner and didn’t find a lot of
things she needed to buy from the
various venders. Earlier in the
week, Joe Livermont stopped in
for a visit. The lady who deals with
telephones for the deaf also came
by to see how Betty was getting
along with her equipment. Although Betty is only partly deaf in
one ear, she is helped by phones
that amplify sound and make it
easier for her to hear.
Scot and Jodie O’Bryan celebrated Halloween with the help of
their daughter, Faye, and her
three kids. The kids helped keep
things moving right along. A few
trick-or-treaters also came by.
Also last week, Jodie traveled to
Faith to deliver some roping cattle
she’d sold to her niece who came
from Lodgepoll, SD, to collect
them. That is Jodie’s old stomping
ground, and she enjoyed revisiting
the area. Scot and Jodie also vis-

award for attending All State Chorus all of her high school years.
Proud of you, gal!
Saturday evening, Evan and
Dorothy Bligh were among the
crowd attending the 24th Annual
Casey Tibbs Foundation Tribute
Dinner at Ft. Pierre. The late
Harold Heinert was one of the inductees into the Cowboy Hall of
Fame that night.
Maxine Allard was among those
helping Emmaline Eagle Bear celebrate her birthday on Sunday afternoon and was thrilled to get to
visit with everyone.
It was Lutheran Ladies Missionary League Sunday at the St.
John Lutheran Church with a special service. The gals served coffee
and rolls after the service, too.
Emmaline Eagle Bear turned
85 this week. A special dinner and
birthday party was hosted by her
family in her honor at the Norris
Township Hall Sunday afternoon
with a nice crowd of family and
friends attending. I remember
being introduced to Emmaline 50
years ago by Richard Totton and
he said, “She is one of the nicest
ladies on the Rosebud.” Truer
words were never spoken.
Local folks were thrilled to see
the painting by Jane Seaton in the
latest edition of the Land and
Livestock paper. You can take a
drive down our super highway and
just before you get to Janice Ring’s
is the very spot of this painting.
The Plenty Bull log cabin is still
leaning against the Blackpipe
creek, too.

A birthday celebration

Marjorie Anne Letellier

Emmaline Eagle Bear of Blackpipe celebrated her 84th birthday on Sunday
afternoon at the Norris Hall surrounded by lots of family and friends.

Bob and Alice Zevnick of Grand
Rapids, MN, recently visited in the
home of Kathy, Jim and Patrick
Brown. They spent ten days in
Kadoka visiting their daughter,
Kathy, and family, and their
neighbors and friends. They got to
take in the activities of Kadoka
Area High School’s homecoming
weekend, and also toured the Badlands, Black Hills and Mount
Rushmore before returning to
their Minnesota home.
Word was received of the death
of Jim Bouman, 52, of Philip on
October 31st at the Rapid City Regional Hospital. Local relatives include his sister, Bonnie Madsen,
and brother, Bill Bouman, and
many other relatives and friends.
Funeral services were held on
Monday, Nov. 4 at Philip, with burial in the Philip Masonic Cemetery. Sympathy is extended to his
wife, three children and all his extended family and friends.
Venessa and Jim Plaggemeyer,
Mathew and Teresa Plaggemeyer
and son, Mathew, have recently
moved to Milbank, SD, where Jim
and Mathew have jobs at a nearby
company. The community wishes

them well in their new home. They
will be closer to their daughter,
Holly, who is a student at SDSU in
Jan and Larry Miller attended
the Tae Kwon Do activities in
Rapid City on Friday and Saturday, October 25 and 26. Their
grandchildren, Bryanna and Tyler,
received their black belts at the
weekend event. They are the children of Sheila and Jeff Kuhn. Also
attending were Logan and Amber
Klima and Caden of Rifle, CO.
Jana (Pettyjohn) Eich of Rapid
City was a visitor in Kadoka on
Saturday. She was on her way to
attend the Midget Football Super
Bowl with the Sauntee Coller family whose children were playing in
the event. Am not sure if they are
on the Wall team, but that team
won the championship game and
Bridger Amiotte was on that team.
Didn’t see much news coverage of
this important event.
Cindy and Ken Wilmarth didn’t
get to the football game, as they
accompanied Tim and Tammy
Merchen to Sioux Falls on Saturday where they attended the All
State Band and Chorus concerts

there. Taylor Merchen and Rachel
Shuck were presented an award
for being in the All State Chorus
for all four years from Kadoka.
The other delegates were Herbie
O’Daniel and Logan Ammons, and
alternates were Foster Berry, Geoffrey DeVries, Scout Sudbeck and
Venessa Buxcel. Congratulations
to all these students.
Ellen (Weiss) Totton, 85, of
Murdo passed away on November
1 at the Philip Nursing Home. She
was the sister-in-law of Rex and
Jake Totton of Kadoka and the
wife of Bob Totton. They lived for
several years in Norris before
moving to Murdo. Her funeral was
held in Murdo on Tuesday, Nov. 5
and burial was in the National
Cemetery near Sturgis. Sympathy
is extended to her family and
Another Holiday Festival and
dinner was held in Kadoka on
Sunday which was again very successful. Forty-one vendors had
booths in the auditorium and the
nursing home served a delicious
beef dinner. The weather was very
nice and as a result there was a
large crowd attending.

This week’s news.
I joined five other ladies for a

Kadoka Nursing Home | Cathy Stone, 837-2270
Hello once again.
This week for visitors we
started off with Hal and Edie Ireland, Lyndy and Kenny Ireland,
stopping in to visit with their dad,
Shorty Ireland. Others stopping to
visit Shorty were his sisters,
Wilma DeBoer, Curly Mansfield,
and his nephew, Ray Mansfield.
Shorty told me he was so glad to
see all of them and that they had
a real good visit.
Mary Schnee came by to see
Emma Jarl and to visit with many
of the other residents.
Bunny Green had quite a busy
week with family and friends stopping by. Betty Kusick dropped in
for a few minutes and her son,
Vern, and his wife, Deb Green, and
Bunny’s daughter had Sunday
lunch with her.
Nelva and Janet Louder were in
to visit with Dwight Louder. They
were in town for Emma’s Stones
confirmation at the Lutheran
Church. The program was very inspirational and the five students
will be true Christians throughout
the remainder of their lives. Congratulations to all of you!
Lib Thomas, Alice Wilmarth’s
daughter, was here for a few days
for a visit. She’s so blessed to get
to see the other family members
daily and most weekends. Tammy
Merchen is in on each Wednesday
to fix her hair and she always
looks so nice afterwards.
In visiting Joy Parker this week
were Renate and Ron Carson,
Wilma Carlson and many friends.
Joy really enjoys her morning
team walks. She’s always the first
one with her coat on and usually
sitting in the front lobby waiting
for that door to open to get that

fresh breath of air. Keep up the
good work Ms. Joy!
Don Kemnitz and Elaine’s
daughter-in-law, Deb, was in to
see her this week. Deb happened
to bring along the little dog and
everyone always loves to see any
kind of animal in or around the
place. If you have any animal you
would like to share with us please
feel free to drop in any time, I
promise you will make the residents day!
Arlys Klundt and Raynita drove
from down Rapid City to take
Arlys’ mom, Ruth, out to lunch Jigger’s. She stated that everything
tasted great as usual. Arlyss had
to return shortly afterwards as he
had to work that evening.
Lova Bushnell was in on Saturday to visit with the residents and
joined in on the afternoon game.
We appreciate Lova so much for
being so dedicated in your visiting
of our resident. I know there are so
many others that drop in on a regular basis and the residents really
enjoy your company.
We were blessed this week with
a special program by Darlene
Meyers Red Elk Music missionary.
She comes from Rosebud and is
listened to on six different radio
stations. She is absolutely fantastic! She is a real good friend of
Emma Jarls and knows Bud and
Clara BelleWeller very well. Those
coming to the program were many
residents, Marsha Sumptner, Lola
Joyce, Bud Weller, Roseanne Tridle, Phylis Word, and Mary
Schnee. Darlene had to get back
right away as it was getting dark,
but says she’ll be back sometime
for a Christmas program. We can’t
wait, she’s fantastic and oh what a

voice! We are thankful for Darlene
to share her talent.
Starla Brown came by to see
her mom, Mary Ellen Herbaugh.
They took a drive downtown and
picked up a few items from the
store. You know it doesn’t mean
anything to us that go to the store
anytime we want, but to the residents it means the world to some
of them just to go for a drive downtown to the store, bank, or library.
Bowen has a birthday on November 6, and on November 11 Oliver
Willert and Milton Sorenson will
be celebrating their birthdays.
For those who might not have
read the last issue I am planning
a Christmas wreath decorating
contest. The wreaths will be put
on the residents doors this year,
some of wreaths we have are OK,
but others sure could be replaced
or redone. It would be a good
facelift for the inside of the building at Christmas. I am asking the
wreaths be turned in by the first
Sunday in December. The judging
of the wreaths will be held at our
annual Christmas party and the
winners will be invited to the
party. We appreciate your consideration in this matter and let’s put
our imagination together to see
what beautiful door decorations
we can come up with!
We were so happy to see all who
came out and took part in the annual holiday festival. It was huge
success once again this year!
Fromm’s Hardware donated a
great big box of Christmas items
to KNH. We are thankful you
thought of us and I promise it will
be put to good use!

•To represent this school and
community with dignity.
•To instruct these young ladies
in the fundamentals of basketball!
•To teach by word and by example (I will not demand anything
out of my team that I am not willing to work for myself)
•To challenge my players to represent this school and community
with outstanding character!
•To inspire my players to be a
team (there is no I in team)!
•To instill self-discipline in
these young ladies!!

As a coach, I am really excited
about this upcoming season. I look

can see from my goals above, I
stress more than just basketball!!
As a parent/guardian, you play
a vital role in the season too! I
need your help in encouraging the
players to work on their own outside of practice in order to improve

the team. Please remind them to

Ellen Totton___________________________________

James A. “Jim” Bouman__________________________

Ellen Totton, age 85, of Murdo,
S.D., died Friday, November 1,
2013, at the Philip Nursing Home.
Ellen Jean Weiss was born September 23, 1928, at the hospital in
Mobridge, the fifth of seven children born to Ernest R.O. and Olga
(Wiedmann) Weiss. She was baptized December 9, 1928, at the
Lutheran Church of Akaska with
her aunt and uncle, Tillie and
Emil Wiedman, as her sponsors.
She lived in the country at Akaska
for six years.
In September 1934, the family
moved to Parmelee. Her mother,
with the help of a good sheep dog,
began driving 200 head of sheep
south and her father drove a truck
loaded with their belongings. A car
carrying the rest of the children
was chained behind the truck with
the oldest son, Harold, age 11,
steering the car. At night they
slept in a tent with the sheep
around them. By morning, some of
the sheep had strayed looking for
water, which was very scarce at
the time. They had to search some
distance to find them but made it
to their new home by Parmelee
without losing any sheep. When
they got to Pierre, the traffic was
stopped so they could move the
sheep across the Missouri River
bridge. They lost the dog at the
river so it was more difficult for
mother to control the sheep after
that. Their new home was a small
log house built into a hillside with
a sod top and dirt floor located
three miles east of Parmelee.
Growing up, Ellen’s time was
spent herding sheep and milking
cows. She would haul and stack
hay, shock grain behind the
binder, do chicken and hog chores,
besides chopping wood and hauling water to the house.
Ellen went to first and second
grades at the Parmelee School. In
1937, the family moved to another
home in Todd County and there
Ellen and her brothers and sisters
attended a country school. The
family moved across the county
line just into Mellette County in
1939. While living there, Ellen attended the Danbury School. Ellen
stayed with Rev. and Mrs. Gerhardt Walters while attending a
short year at the Prairie View
School. She completed her education at the Kaufman School while
living with Henry and Theresa
Kaufman, where she worked for
her room and board by milking 1012 cows, morning and evening,
singing to the cows while she
It was while living with the
Kaufmans that Ellen learned to
play music. In the evenings,
Henry taught her how to play the
guitar. As Henry played the saxophone, guitar or one of several
other instruments, Ellen would
play along on the piano or guitar,
and Theresa would bake some

James A. “Jim” Bouman, age
52, of Philip, S.D., died Thursday,
October 31, 2013, at the Rapid
City Regional Hospital.
James Allen Bouman was born
May 19, 1961, to George and Marjorie (Wang) Bouman at his
Grandma McKee’s home in White
River. He was the youngest and
cheapest child – only costing
$100 – of six children. Jim was a
perfectly sweet little brother according to his sisters, but don’t ask
his brothers. They might tell you
stories about hammers, tacks, flyswatters, tube socks with sand,
and brooms. He grew up in White
River, attending school there. His
favorite teacher was Mr. Risseeuw
and his St. Bernard dogs. He graduated in 1980 from White River
High School.
He attended Mitchell Vo-Tech
and earned an architecture degree
in carpentry. After vo-tech, Jim
worked for Rich Hildebrand traveling all over Minnesota and
South Dakota doing concrete
Jim married Traci Iwan and
was blessed to be the father of
three children from his marriage.
His kids were his pride and joy. He
told numerous stories of his kids,
Kelly’s red fire truck, Steph’s broken green crayon stuck in her
nose, and Cody’s deer gutting experience.
Jim had the privilege of going
to Custer to fight the Jasper Fire
with Rich Foley and Cody Riggins.
It was during that week he met
Kim Foley. He came back up to
Custer with a couple of her “bro’s”
to celebrate the Jasper Fire being
put out, and then spent a wonderful night of dancing at the Philip
Fireman’s Ball before he asked
her out on a date. He spent four
and a half days in Philip and four
and a half days in Custer according to his friend, Marty, for a year
before asking her (and Karch) to
become part of his family. Kim and
Jim were united in marriage on
June 25, 2005, in Philip.

goodies that Ellen would take to
school the next day for lunch.
In May of 1944, Ellen was confirmed at St. John Lutheran
Church. Since it had rained the
night before, the team and wagon
were needed to help pull the car
part way to the church.
Following in their parents’ footsteps, several of the Weiss youngsters formed a small band and
played for many dances at the
Norris Hall. Brother Harold
played the trumpet and Ellen and
her sister Irene would change off
playing the banjo and piano. Another sister, Erna, would help
when the girls would sing.
After the older children married and her younger brother Earl
was called to serve in the Korean
War, Ellen and her parents moved
back to Todd County. Along with
the milking chores, Ellen rode
horseback to check the range cattle and calves and repair fences,
and helped feed and water the
stock around home in the wintertime. The cow milking stopped for
Ellen in 1952, when she and Bob
Totton, a young man from Norris,
set a date to get married in the
On October 26, 1952, Ellen was
married to Robert Totton at St.
John’s by Rev. Harold Keuchle.
Their first home was a 24 foot
trailer home on the Bill and Leila
Dithmer Ranch by Long Valley,
where Bob was working. Bob was
soon appointed temporarily, then
permanent postmaster at Norris.
Bob quickly built a building to
serve as a post office that was
ready in 1953. Ellen and Bob
bought the former postmaster’s
home and moved to Norris, and
with a little fixing and remodeling
settled into their next home. Their
daughter, Deanna was born on
July 13, 1954.
Ellen was always very active in
her community and church. She
was the head cook at the Norris
School for 17 years. For 30 years,
she served as treasurer for the
Blackpipe Township, then the
Norris Township when the townships divided. She was organist at

St. John for 16 years. She taught
Sunday School, along with teaching and playing the organ for
Bible School for several years. She
had a business baking cakes for
weddings and special occasions in
the community. Ellen could never
just sit, so in her spare time she
did a lot of crocheting and beautiful fancy work. She loved to bowl
and was in the Mission bowling
league. For years, Ellen and bob
square danced, traveling to
Switzerland once to dance with a
group of friends in the Rosebud
Square Dance Club.
In the early 1980s, Ellen and
Bob began building a new home in
Murdo. Upon Bob’s retirement
from the U.S. Postal Service in
1984, she moved with Bob to
Murdo where she again became
active in her new community. For
20 years, Ellen worked in a motel,
played organ at Messiah Lutheran
Church Saturday services, and
traveled to Pierre with friends to
bowl. They were also active members of the square dance club in
White River.
In the fall of 2011, Ellen went to
live at the Philip Nursing Home
where she lived out her last years.
Grateful for having shared her
life are her husband, Robert “Bob”
Totton, of Murdo; grandson,
Justin Holm, of Rapid City; greatgranddaughter, Melinda; son-inlaw, Daniel Holm, of Rapid City;
three sisters, Erna Heinert and
Irene Kaufman, both of Valentine,
Neb., and Darlene Guenther and
her husband, Roger, of Onalaska,
Texas; one brother, Earl Weiss of
Hot Springs; a sister-in-law, Carol
Weiss; and a host of other relatives and friends.
Ellen was preceded in death by

parents, Ernest and Olga Weiss;

Heather Marie Holm; two brothers, Harold and Richard Weiss;
two brothers-in-law, Walter Heinert, and James Kaufman; and a

Inspiration Point
What Keeps Grace from Flowing?
Read James 4:1-6
We know from the Bible that God continually showers His children with
blessings. However, most believers don’t always feel as though He’s pouring
His favor upon them. What could be blocking the free flow of divine grace?
Proverbs 6:16-19 provides a list of seven things that God hates. Certain
attitudes and behaviors are categorized as detestable to Him, and the first
thing mentioned is pride.
Nothing will interfere with spiritual growth as much as a proud spirit.
That is why God considers it an abomination. Pride misaligns priorities in
such a way that we—and not the Lord—become our own priority.
We can find many examples of pride throughout Scripture. For instance,
the serpent convinced the first woman that if she ate of the forbidden fruit,
she would “be like God” (Gen. 3:5). That sounded good to Eve, who apparently
thought she deserved this high honor. So she and Adam ate the fruit, thereby
bringing all manner of destruction and pain into the world.
If you have been struggling to feel God’s hand of blessing in your life, a
wise first step is to humbly pray and ask the Lord to reveal any hidden areas
of pride in your life. His arms are full of blessings that He desires to give you.
As the preacher D. L. Moody once observed, “God sends no one away empty
except those who are full of themselves.” Will you choose instead to be full of
God? You can start by laying your pride at the foot of the cross. Then your
life can overflow with blessings.

Sunflower Lodged,
Yields Disappointing?
As the fall harvest season progresses, farmers are commenting
that sunflowers are lodging, or
“going down” more than usual.
They are also finding that, compared to the high corn and grain
sorghum yields, sunflower yields
have been disappointing.
There are likely several reasons for both lodging of sunflower,
and lower than expected yields.
Several of them can be attributed
to, oddly enough, excessive rain.
While research has been conducted on the additional yield
various crop species can produce
with each additional inch of
water, there is a law of diminishing returns. In some cases, too
much moisture can actually have
a negative effect. As one producer
put it, sunflower doesn’t need
that much rain.
One sunflower disease that has
become increasingly common in
the U.S. recently is phomopsis
stem canker. The disease was
first observed in Europe in the
early 1980’s, and discovered in
the U.S. in 1984. The incidence of
phomopsis in U.S. sunflower
fields has gone from a small percentage of the crop until, starting
in 2006, increasing steadily in
most states, with near-epidemic
proportions in 2010. Another increase, to an estimated 14% occurred in 2011, and higher yet in
2012. The incidence of phomopsis
in sunflower fields I have surveyed as part of the NSA (National Sunflower Association)
survey has increased in the past
few years, consistent with the national trend. Relatively low levels
of lodging were seen in those
fields, but the surveys were conducted in early-mid September.
As the plants matured, lodging
Phomopsis stem canker is a
fungal disease that overwinters
mainly in infected plant debris.
The ascospores are released during wet weather the following
spring-summer and rain splashed
or windblown onto lower leaves,
where the infection starts. The infection spreads down through the
veins, through the petiole and to
the stem where it forms a lesion.
Girdling stem lesions result in
wilting, resulting in smaller
heads, lighter seed, and sometimes lodging. Of course high
winds will aggravate lodging, but
weakened stems don’t hold up
Suggested management of phomopsis stem canker to date is
crop rotation, use of resistant hybrids, and if practiced, tillage.
There has also been research
done with seed treatment and foliar fungicides, but to date, there
are no fungicides registered in the
U.S. for control of this disease.
Since phomopsis was first detected in Europe, progress has
been made in developing phomopsis resistance into their hybrids.
Most U.S. sunflower seed companies are trying to use these
parental lines to incorporate some
level of resistance into their lines.
There are other diseases and
issues that likely contributed to
the increased lodging and disappointing yields of sunflower this
year. The following tips are offered to help in managing diseases in sunflower and other
crops: 1. Integrated Pest Management (IPM) – use multiple strategies to manage disease, not just
one. 2. Know the enemy – become
or continue to be educated. 3.
Find the enemy – scout to know
what diseases you have. 4. Crop
rotation – reduce the pathogen. 5.
Resistance – no guarantees, but
reduced chances of infection. 6.
Fungicide seed treatments –
most, if not all sunflower seed
comes treated, and for good reason. 7. Foliar fungicides – apply
when justified. 8. Stay engaged
and adapt – the world changes
quickly in agriculture.
