Message from the
South Dakota
Highway Patrol
The 4th of July is a time to celebrate your freedom, not lose it. Make
this special holiday a blast… not a
bust. If you choose to drink and drive
this 4th of July, you will get caught.
I’m Inspector Darid Cooper with
the South Dakota Highway Patrol
Motor Carrier Services and I want
you to have a safe holiday. Make sure
you have a sober ride home, even if
you’ve only had a couple of drinks.
Remember, buzzed driving is drunk

by Tami Jo Newbold-Flynn
Former Jones County High School
Alumni Dee Anderson is doing what she
loves by working as a stylist. Anderson
has styled noteable artists such as
Green Day, the Eagles, Daughtry, Muse,
Lifehouse, Jason Mraz, The Fray, Lucinda Williams, Linkin Park and most
recently one of the hottest bands in
America, Imagine Dragons.
Dee Anderson is the daughter of
Murdo residents Orville and Lola Anderson. Dee has one sister, Diane Deis, who
lives in Fort Pierre and one brother
Doug Anderson who lives in Pierre. After
graduating high school in 1988 Dee
moved to Minneapolis “to experience big
city life.” She has worked in fashion
most of her adult life and moved to Los
Angeles 14 years ago. Dee is married to
Rye Randa and they have a three year
old daughter Charlei.
Besides her parents/family something
Anderson misses about South Dakota is
“the wide open spaces and seeing a sky
filled with stars.” Anderson said you
don’t see many stars in the sky in L.A,
but she loves the people in L.A. and especially the “rich cultural diversity
available that pours into everything
from food to architecture to fashion.”
Anderson said the most surprising
thing about working with famous people
is “how hard working and passionate
each artist is.”
Anderson recently started ‘The Enlightened Closet Project.’ Just in it’s infancy the project and Anderson’s
accompanying blog will hopefully “spark
people to think before they buy.” Anderson said, “The reason I started it [the
project] was because of the Rana Glaza
Factory collapse and the awakening I
had at the time. Reading about how
cheap clothes (and some expensive) are
made and the people who make them.

How little they are paid and how terrible
their working conditions are. The environmental impact that clothing in landfills
make...they release greenhouse gases as
they break down. Fast fashion is made so

It’s all about the paint
by Tami Jo Newbold-Flynn
Driving by Moore’s Building Center
lately a person may have noticed that
they are making improvements to the
outside of their building. The outside
isn’t even the coolest thing they have
going on. Inside they have added a state
of the art color work station. Pittsburgh
Paint’s newest color palet is called ‘The
Voice of Color.’ The station is a way to
use technology to make color selection
When walking up to the station on
one side there are all the colors they
have to choose from and some accompanying booklets full of ideas for rooms. On
the other side there is a big flat screen.
The flat screen is a computer to help design the color scheme of any room in
your house or to pick an exterior look.

The new color work station at Moore’s.

The customer can either choose a
room first or a color card first. After
choosing a card the bar code on back of
the card may then be scanned. This puts
all the colors from that card on the
screen next to the room that has been
chosen to be painted. Multiple color
cards may be chooses as the screen will
hold up to 15 different colors from several cards.
The customer now can take the various colors and drag them to one of several points on the screen and it colors
the wall or trim or whatever section is
selected. This process may be repeated
until the perfect color combination is
Probably the coolest part of the whole
process is that after all colors have been
chosen and placed in the correct spot,
the colors and/or room can then be
emailed to your house. After returning
home and receiving the email a picture
of the actual room the customer is about
to paint may also be download. Then
they can try the colors already picked on
an actual picture of the room.

Another new business in Murdo is
featuring a different kind of paint. Polished, owned and operated by licensed
nail technician Jennifer Strait, is featuring paint for finger and toe nails.

Strait is originally a Philip native.
She moved to Jones County after meeting and marrying Colin Strait in 2012.
Jen said, “I am excited about having a
business in Murdo.” Strait explained
that before she even started her training, she called Hair Inc. owner Sherry
Philips and asked if Philips would be interested in having Strait work out of her
shop. Philips said that she would love to
have her and so Strait started school.
Strait loved school and enjoyed learning.
Strait said, “I wanted to do something
I love that is also creative.” She also
credits her identical twin sister, Jessica,
for the interest in doing something cosmetology related as her sister is a cosmetologist.
Since Strait opened Polished about
two weeks ago she has been busy and
has many appointments for the coming
weeks already booked. For days and
hours you can see her ad in our B&P
section on the back page.

end up in garbage/landfill. I just really felt
compelled to make a change in my own

Anderson says in her blog, “There has to

be another way of doing business. One
where people care more about each other’s
well being than the bottom line.”

Grow: 66/125 project
by Tami Jo Newbold-Flynn
Grow: 66/125 is a unique project
started by Altman E. Studeny. The project was meant to serve a double purpose
of celebrating South Dakota’s 125th anniversary of statehood and also to promote tree planting.
The press release description states,
“Between June 7 and the 22 we will be
driving across the state to collect two
and a half gallons of sil from a site in
every county, from Aurora to Ziebach. All
of the collected sil will be mixed together, repotted in those 66 buckets and
Bur oak tree planted in each. From July
19 to August 24, those trees will be displayed at Governor’s Grove on State
Capitol grounds in Pierre, and at the
close of that installation every tree and
its own quantity of symbolically intermingled dirt will be returned to each of
the holes from which the original sample was collected. There they will grow
tall, healthy, and thanks only to the
combined efforts of hard working people
across the whole of South Dakota in
communities large and small to greet
each anniversary of statehood yet to
The project coordinators asked that

each county “choose a significant site in
or near to the county seat from which
the soil collected and the tree eventually
Val Feddersen said, “The Bur oak is a
good tribute to South Dakota and the
whole project is an awesome idea.”

Project coordinator Altman E. Studeny came to Jones County mid June to collect the soil
from the Murdo City Park. He then secured a one foot square board over the hole that
has the Grow: 66/125 logo painted on it.

Our sympathy to the family of
Carolyn Hullinger Smith of Vivian. Carolyn passed away in
Pierre June 20. Services were
June 25 at the Lutheran church
with burial in the Vivian Cemetery.
Shelli Terwilliger of Rapid City
spent the night on Thursday with
her mom, Rosa Lee Styles. Shelli
was on her way home after spending time in Minneapolis with
daughter Tara and Zac Meyer and
Jackie Nies and daughter Val
Feddersen spent Tuesday of last
week in Pierre, kept an appointment, out for lunch and got in a
little shopping.
Jason Seamans of Rapid City
spent the weekend home with
mom Lill, so got to do a little yard
work. You would think he would
learn to stay away! That wouldn’t
be nice though, would it?
Cortney Dowling of Pierre was
nominated and won the Gatorade
athletic award. This is the second
time she has won. Cortney is the
daughter of Brent and Donna;
granddaughter of Trace and
Karen Dowling. Congratulations,
In talking to Karen this morning, Janet Louder asked about
her brother and wife, Stan and
Cindy Erikson. They recently
moved from Rapid City to
Brighton, Colo. Stan and Janet’s
son, Brian, are friends; and the
Eriksons used to live across and
up the street from the Louders. In
Pierre Brian and Stan lived near
each other, then a move to Rapid

City and again they lived close,
but Janet thinks this may be the
last time, as doubt that Brian will
be moving.
Great grandparents Ray and
Janice Pike took in granddaughters Mallory Venard and Addison
Rankin’s t-ball game last Tuesday
evening. On Thursday evening
they watched grandson Riley
Rankin play baseball.
It was a busy weekend at the

son Doug in Huron and also
stopped in Pierre and called on
Margaret Rankin.
Nelva and Janet Louder left for
Rapid City Friday morning, stopping in Kadoka for breakfast at a
new cafe where great nephew
Chris Byrd is the cook. He did a
good job by the way. While there
his sisters, Brooke and Keena,
popped in so we got in a short
visit. From there called on
brother Dwight, saw Mary Ellen
Herbaugh, and from there to sis
Deanna Byrd’s where they visited
her and the Stone family. Onto
Rapid, toured the hills and ended
up at Cara and Don Pearson’s in
time for supper with them and
daughter Calli and Aria; Brian;
Karen and Jesse; and Jay. On
Saturday afternoon a party was
planned for Aria’s second birthday. The theme was Bubble Guppies (new to Janet!). A bouncy
house was set up in the back yard
which was a lot of fun for her little guests, but the rain hit. So into
the garage for lunch and gifts.
Aria is blessed with two sets of
grandparents and three sets of
great grandparents and they were
all there; plus lots of uncles, aunts
and cousins. It was really a down
pour – everyone got pretty wet
getting to their cars, but was a

fun time. Sunday morning some of
the group decided to go out for
breakfast and again it poured, but
none of them are made of sugar so
they didn’t melt! Janet and Nelva
came home. Janet called later and
they said the sun came out and
the bouncy house was set up again
and the little people got to bounce

Yard of the week

Our Eyes Are Upon YOU
There is a very interesting account recorded in II Chronicles
20:12 of the Bible. Word came to
Israel’s godly King Jehoshaphat
one day that a great army was
invading the land. The impending catastrophe was far beyond
his power to prevent. Therefore
he turned to those resources always available to GOD’s people.
We read that Jehoshaphat
feared, set himself to seek the
LORD, and proclaimed a fast
throughout all Judah. Many
gathered to join their king in
asking GOD’s help. The prayer in
which the king led the people is
recorded. It concludes with the
words, “We have no might . . .
neither know we what to do: but
our eyes are upon YOU.”
The answer came, “The battle
is not yours, but GOD’s . . . you
stand still, and see the salvation
of the LORD” (vss.15,17). Sure of

God’s help, the king appointed
singers to go out before the army,
& to say, “Praise the LORD; for
HIS mercy endures forever!”
(v.21). It was when they began to
praise HIM that the LORD overthrew the enemy.
This entire passage is exceedingly rich in its instruction for us
today when we are faced with
Shortly before the account of Jehoshaphat we find the words
written, “if you seek HIM, HE
will be found of you,” and almost
at once we read that “when they
in their trouble did turn unto the
LORD GOD of Israel, and sought
HIM, HE was found of them” (II
The godly king called upon others to seek the LORD with him.
He believed in the “prayer meeting.” There was a united acknowledgement of helplessness

and lack of wisdom. Many joined
with him in the cry, “our eyes are
upon YOU.” Any child of GOD
faced with a fiery trial certainly
would do well to ask the prayers
of others at the services of the
church. GOD is our loving FATHER. HE will not turn aside
from the cry of HIS people when
HE knows their eyes are upon
HIM in confident expectation of
Divine help.
Our praise should not wait for
the promised deliverance. It may
be that as in this ancient record,
while we are singing and praising HIM for the help we know is
sure to come, help will arrive.
Perhaps even now our failure to
offer thanksgiving is delaying
the blessing for which we have
longed. (Psalm 100:4; Colossians

Such was Abraham’s faith in God! Three times this is emphasized in Romans 4 alone: He was “not weak in faith” (Ver. 19); he “staggered not at the
promise of God through unbelief,” but was “strong in faith” (Ver. 20).
But it was not the strength of Abraham’s faith that saved him; it was the fact that the object of his faith was God (See again Gen. 15:6). He had placed
his faith in the right Person. His faith became “strong” only because he had heard and believed God in the first place.
“For what saith the Scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness,” and thus “to him that worketh not, but believeth on Him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness” (Rom. 4:3,5).

Abraham’s faith in God was strong. When God called him to forsake his family, friends and country, he obeyed and “went forth, not knowing whither
he went.” When God promised to multiply his seed as the stars of heaven, he believed it, though childless. When, in his old age, God promised that he
would still have a son by ninety-year-old Sarah, he believed it even though he had waited so long, seemingly in vain. When God promised to give his
seed the land in which he had sojourned, he believed it, though all reason argued against it. When God asked him to offer in sacrifice the son born so
late in life, the son upon whom all the promises depended, he obeyed, concluding that it must be God’s plan to raise him from the dead!

The simplest, humblest believer, who ever so feebly commits himself to God and His Word, is “justified freely by His grace through the redemption
that is in Christ Jesus” (Rom. 3:24).

Storm clouds over Draper

Lookin’ Around
• Syd Iwan •
Motivational speakers seldom
motivate me. I have a certain
amount of resistance to hype of
any sort, and motivational speakers often are heavily into hype.
That would include describing a
certain course of action in glowing
terms and skipping over all the
difficulties that might be encountered.
What is worse, snappy sayings
are common when trying to promote a specific agenda. Friend
Don used to like to spout some of
those in our weekly Bible studies
just because he knew I would
groan and fuss at him. “When the
going gets tough, the tough get
going,” was one he was particularly fond of. Oof! There is obviously some truth in this adage,
but I still despise it.
Nevertheless, sometimes we
need motivation. We may be trying to change some things in our
lives or adjust longstanding
habits, and progress is slow to
nonexistent. Maybe if we post a
bunch of sayings on the wall
where we can’t miss them, they’ll
help us get going. Here are a few
that might do the job.
Ask your doctor if getting off
your rear is right for you.
I just woke up one day and decided I didn’t want to feel like that
anymore so I changed.

Change does not come with
comfort. Ever!
If you want to fly, you have to
get rid of all the garbage that
weighs you down.
Pain is temporary. Quitting
lasts forever.
Fear is a prison.
Decide that you want it more
than you are afraid of it.
I will do it.
If you want doors to open for
you, don’t wait for someone else to
do it. Take a crowbar and pry
them open yourself.
When everything feels like an
uphill struggle, just think of the
view from the top.
Unless someone like you practices a whole lot, it’s not going to
get better. It’s not.
Dear Body. I’m sorry I’ve
treated you this way—feeding you
the wrong foods and not taking
care of you. I promise to do better
and get you back to the best shape
and fitness level you can be. We

Murdo Coyote • June 26, 2014 •


A unique perspective: Murdo City Auditorium
by Gerald Miller
A lot of people, both those with
children and those without, were
very enthusiastic about building
the new auditorium. Although Bill
and Evelyn Kuhrt had no children
they were always very supportive
of children and school activities.
Evelyn was a teacher in the school
system for many years. Bill’s regular job was railroad section foreman for many years. They also
ran a dairy so Bill had to up early
anyway. Bill was in charge of
rounding up the crew on the day
we poured concrete and he would
go around town pounding on doors
and windows to wake up the individuals who were supposed to
show up on given day to help pour
concrete. This was at a time before
central air conditioning was common in Murdo and I remember at
least one time when Bill yelled in
an open bedroom window. The
lady of the house was apparently
thinly clad and sleeping on top of
the covers because of the hot
weather. She was quite upset with
Bill who thought the whole thing
was very funny.
Another individual who was
very enthusiastic about the project was Herman Brost, a rancher
from south of Okaton on the White
River. He always showed up bringing two helpers from the ranch.
One of these was usually his son
Frank Brost, who was a member
of the first basketball team to play
in the new auditorium. Sometimes
the other helper was Dave Brost,
another first team member who
was working at the Brost Ranch
that summer. Dave’s parents were
still living in Nebraska at that
A variety of fundraisers were
used with the proceeds going toward the construction project. On
May 29, 1954, a benefit auction
was held at the Murdo Sales
Pavilion to sell donated items
which included livestock, machinery, hay, poultry, and a variety of
merchandise including household
goods, plumbing fixtures, groceries, clothing, and miscellaneous
items. Over $6,500 was raised. On
Labor Day of 1954, stock car races
were held on the half-mile track at
the Murdo Fairgrounds. These
races were sponsored by the
Murdo volunteer firemen and netted $366.
The building structure was put

together using mostly volunteer
labor. Other parts of the building,
including roofing and heating,
were advertised for bids. Newlin
Roofing, Sioux Falls, was awarded
the roofing contract for $2,780.
William Francis, Murdo, was
awarded the heating contract for
$5,582. It was late fall before the
building was complete enough to
use. On November 1, 1954, the
city council announced plans for
the first annual firemen’s dance to
be held in the new auditorium on
November 24. The ladies of the
community were asked to prepare
barbecues, ham sandwiches, pies,
cakes, and coffee and to also serve
one and a half hour shift that
night. The first dance drew a large
crowd and was deemed a success.
On December 6, 1954, the city
council voted to create an Auditorium Fund with the rental paid for
the use of the building. This fund
was to be used for maintenance,
upkeep and depreciation of the
building. A talent show was sponsored by the Progressive Study
Club on January 14, 1955, with a

variety of entertainments. After
taxes an amount of $293 remained
and the club rounded it off to a
total of $300 which was turned
over to the auditorium to be used
toward the purchase of bleachers.
Seats for the building arrived in
late January before the February
1, 1955 game with Vivian. The
seats would accommodate approximately 1,500 people. Funds to
purchase seats were being raised
by contributions to the $100 club.
Anyone interested in membership
in this club was asked to contact
Jeff Sanderson. It was ironic that
the team that helped create the
desire to build a new auditorium
lost to Vivian in the first district
tournament held in it.
The project was quite a learning experience for me. It involved
working with a volunteer work
force and with several individuals
who were used to being in charge
and doing things their own way. A
couple of times when workmanship was a little crude from my
point of view. I thought it best to
remind them that we weren’t

building a barn or cattle shed. In
retrospect a lot of separate individuals worked overtime, donated
money or use of equipment so the
project could be completed. Overall it was a good example of what
can be accomplished when people
work together.
In a small town an organized
maintenance program is difficult
to achieve because a committee
with that responsibility would be
all volunteers. As a result, some
repairs have been neglected. A
pitched roof has been added, replacing the flat roof area over the
entrance lobby on the east end of
the building. Other than intermittent maintenance, the major
change to the building was the addition of a hardwood playing surface on the floor of the main room.
The building has served its intended purpose quite well and it
appears it will do so for the foreseeable future.

(Jerry) Miller for writing Murdo
City Auditorium-The Beginning
and for sharing the story with us.

South Dakota State University’s Dakota Lakes Research
Farm will be hosting their Annual
Summer Field Day on Thursday,
June 26 beginning at 4 p.m. and
running until dark.
The Dakota Lakes Research
Farms is located 17 miles east of
Pierre along the south side of
Highway 34. Their mission is to
identify, research, and demonstrate methods of strengthening
and stabilizing the agriculture
economy. The research enterprise
at the farm is operated by SDSU.
The not-for-profit Dakota Lakes
Research Farm Corporation manages the production enterprise
and owns the land, the fixed facilities, and much of the field equipment.
The field day will feature numerous speakers from SDSU and
the NRCS-USDA. Attendees will
have a chance to view winter
wheat, field pea, and flax varieties. They can also hear about Integrated
Programs including weed, insect,
and disease ID and management
in crops. Proper use of crop rotations and cover crops to enhance
soil health will be addressed as
will new crops for grain and biofuel production. A tour of the new
zero-net-energy shop facility is
Wagons will begin leaving the

farm headquarters to tour the
farm beginning at 4 p.m. on the
26th and continue until dusk. The
last wagon will leave headquarters at 7:30 p.m. Different wagons
will cover different presentations.
Attendees have the option to take
one or all the tours.
This event is free to the public.
Certified Crop Advisor Credits will
be available. A light meal will be
served. Call 605-773-8120 for
more information.
Develop a Grazing Plan for a
“Sweet Clover Year”
The cool spring of 2014 has
placed rangeland plant development behind a normal year and
this allows time for producers to
implement some different scenarios into their grazing plans. There
are a number of options producers
can develop to increase stocking
rates or the duration of the grazing period due to the prolific
growth of sweet clover. These scenarios could include the following;
individually or in combination to
meet the forage harvesting goals
of the producer.
Targeted grazing. Identify and
graze pastures with heavy concentrations of SC early in the growing
season using the current levels of
livestock on the ranch. Temporary
fencing can be installed to concentrate grazing in heavily infested
SC areas. Lengthen the duration
of the grazing period in pastures
with dense SC, while deferring

other pastures.
Bring in additional livestock to
temporarily match the forage supply for the current production
year. Cow/calf pairs, yearling cattle, ewes/lambs or lambs and certainly combinations of these
grazing animals could be used to
better balance grazing pressure.
Haying SC in the early bud to
bud stage will provide for the
highest level of forage quality and
also allowing an opportunity for
some SC and grass regrowth that
could be grazed later in the season.
The grazing plan should consider wildlife development and
habitat goals. A “sweet clover”
year can provide excellent cover
and food habitat for nesting upland game birds. In this case the
grazing plan may defer grazing of
some pastures with dense patches
of SC until the end of the nesting

The United Nations named
2014 the International Year of
Family Farming. During Jones
County’s Farmers Union annual
day camp, youth learned about
our state’s number one industry of
agriculture as well as the impact
cooperatives have on their daily
Developed around the theme,
“It’s a Bird, It’s a Plane, It’s Cooperation,” activities taught youth
how cooperatives work, farm
safety and the many different aspects of agriculture in South
Dakota. Throughout the day
camp, held at the Mickelson Community Center in Murdo on June
17, youth participated in interactive activities and hands-on crafts
which also taught them about the
importance of working together
and team building. They also enjoyed a refreshing swim in the
community pool.
“Agriculture and cooperatives
play such valuable roles in our
rural communities, we developed
our camp curriculum to teach
youth about the impact they have
on their own lives in a fun and interactive way,” said Bonnie Geyer

USDA provides $8 million to honey bees

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), today announced $8
million in Conservation Reserve
Program (CRP) incentives for
Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin farmers and ranchers who establish new habitats for declining
honey bee populations. More than
half of the commercially managed
honey bees are in these five states
during the summer. Today’s announcement comes in addition to
$3 million USDA designated to the
Midwest states to support bee populations earlier this year through
the Natural Resources Conservation Service Environmental Quality Incentives Program.
“American agricultural production relies on having a healthy
honey bee population,” said Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack. “In
recent years, factors such as diseases, parasites, pesticides or habitat loss have contributed to a
significant decline in the honey bee
population. This $8 million is part
of the Administration's ongoing

strategy to reverse these trends
and establish more plant habitat
on Conservation Reserve Program
lands to restore the bee population.”
The new CRP pollinator initiative is designed to further enhance
current CRP land, allowing it to
provide better access to nutritious
pollinator forage. The program allows for managing or replacing existing vegetation, known as
‘covers’, with lower cost, high nutrition seed mixes that can support
distinct blooming cycles of plants
that benefit pollinators. Honey
bees, the pollinator workhorse of
U.S. fruit and vegetable agriculture, will have more blooms from
which to collect nectar and pollen
to sustain and promote colony
growth and honey production
throughout the growing season. By
assisting honey bees, the pollinator
initiative helps USDA continue to
secure the food supply. More than
$15 billion worth of agricultural
production, including over 130
fruits and vegetables, depend on

the health and well-being of honey
USDA is already actively pursuing solutions to the multiple problems affecting honey bee health.
The Agricultural Research Service
(ARS) maintains four laboratories
across the country conducting research into all aspects of bee genetics,
physiology, with special focus on
bee nutrition, control of pathogens
and parasites, the effects of pesticide exposure and the interactions
between each of these factors. The
Farm Service Agency (FSA) and
NRCS work on improved forage
and habitat for bees through programs such as the Conservation
Reserve Program (CRP) and EQIP.

the pollinator initiative in the five
Midwestern states, the continuous
enrollment in the Conservation Reserve Program, and the pollinator
habitat initiative, agricultural producers are encouraged to contact

As part of a healthy eating pattern, the Dietary Guidelines for
Americans 2010 recommends that
individuals “consume a variety of
vegetables each day, especially
dark-green and red and orange
vegetables, and beans and peas.”
Vegetables are categorized into five
subgroups based on their nutrient
content, these include: dark green,
red and orange, starchy vegetables,
beans and peas and other vegetables.
Cruciferous vegetables (also
known as the cabbage family) are
grown throughout the world. These
vegetables fall into the “dark-green
vegetables” category and “other
vegetables” category. They include
the following vegetables, among
others: broccoli, brussels sprouts,
radishes, collard greens, cauliflower, cabbage, kale, watercress
and turnips.

If properly stored, all vegetables
will stay fresh longer. Cruciferous
vegetables can be stored in a plastic bag in your refrigerator or in the
refrigerators’ vegetable crisper

The majority of cruciferous vegetables will stay fresh for up to five
days in the refrigerator; cabbage
may stay fresh for up to two weeks.
As a good reminder, the consumption of all fruits and vegetables helps decrease your risk of
chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes or cancer. Check out

To tell or not to tell
In 1940 my maternal grandmother was involved in an automobile accident. She had internal
abdominal injuries and was taken
to surgery. In spite of her having
no significant symptoms prior to
the automobile accident, the surgeons found that she had diffuse
cancer changes in the abdomen.
In those days, there was a social
stigma to having a cancer. My
grandfather and all five of their
children elected not to tell her that
she had a cancer. She passed away
never knowing what caused her

years later and was taught all
manner of scientific facts and
rules on how to care for people
that were sick or injured. But not

four years of medical school did
anyone address of the question of
what to tell families and patients
when there was very bad news to
report. Although there is substantial literature on what to tell parand
information is conflicted and there
really doesn’t seem to be a rule on
what the physician should tell or
not tell. The following case illustrates the dilemmas that a physician can face in just such a
The gentleman was 64-years
old when he developed abdominal
discomfort. His private physician
had told him it was just a little indigestion and to try some Maalox.
But the patient was suspicious
that there was more wrong than
“a little indigestion.” He came to
me for a second opinion and introduced himself saying that he
wanted a second opinion, but he
did not want me to tell him that
he had cancer which was the diagnosis that he strongly suspected
was wrong. It turned out that he
indeed did have a malignant condition with cancer of the colon that
had metastasized to his liver. It
was incurable by known medical
practice at the time.
After the diagnosis was established, he was advised that the
most likely treatment to prolong
his life involved the use of
chemotherapy, and the patient
proceeded to Mayo Clinic to obtain
the most up-to-date effective
treatments. A first course of
chemotherapy was carried out and
there was no improvement. A second course of chemotherapy was
planned but the patient declined
that. He came home from Mayo
Clinic and made an appointment
with me again. He said that he

just wanted to be kept as comfortable as could be and he was going
to let the cancer run its natural
history without the use of further
treatment. It was my opinion that
this was an appropriate decision
and I agreed to help him as much
as I could.
I hadn’t seen him for two
months when he came back to the
clinic and wanted to know what I
knew about the “Greek treatment.” I told him I had no knowledge or experience regarding this.
He said that he had heard about it
from a friend and that he wanted
to proceed to Greece to obtain the
treatment that could cure his
colon cancer. He was very enthusiastic and rather than rain on his
parade, I agreed to give him
enough pain medication to make a
trip to Greece and return should
there be any benefit. A niece and
nephew accompanied him to
Greece where he underwent a series of injections, the nature of
which I never knew. He returned
to the United States convinced
that his cancer had been cured.
Several days later, he returned to
the clinic, now with abdominal
pain and obviously terminally ill.
There had been no cure by the
Greek treatment. He was admitted to the hospital for terminal
care and passed away soon thereafter.
The niece and nephew that had
accompanied him to Greece supported and encouraged him in the
belief that his cancer was cured
and when he wanted to know why
he was having such additional
pain, they insisted that we tell
him it had to do with the tumor
cells dying. When he left Greece,
he was told that if he has further
pain problems, he may need surgery to drain the dead cancer from
his body. Until the time of his
passing away, he was very enthusiastic about the treatment that
he had received and how his cancer was now dead and all we had
to do here in Pierre was operate on

the sites of the dead tumor and
allow the poisons to come out.
I discussed his case on many occasions with the niece and nephew
that had accompanied him to
Greece. I told them that there was
no meaningful expectation that
his cancer could be cured by the
“Greek treatment” or anything
else that our modern medicine
was aware of. The niece and
nephew were both very insistent
that he not be informed of this
even though I had no expectation
that he was cured. I supported his
continued enthusiasm through the
time of his death.
Over the years since then, I
have experienced similar situations. Sometimes I informed the
patient and the family of exactly
what was going on and many
times continued the charade of not
telling the patient exactly what is
wrong. Many times I am convinced that the patient knows full
well what is going on and carries
on the charade with the family to
protect the feelings of both. Losing
hope can be very painful for both
patient and family. Conveying
that information to patient and
family should be done with kindness and consideration for the patients and families feelings. Some
want to know the unvarnished
truth in order to make plans and
that this is the time to do exactly
what the patient requests. But
other times, bludgeoning the patient with bad news can be a substantial disservice. To this time in
my career, I still don’t have a hard
and fast rule on how to convey this
information. I do it on an individual basis with my judgement of
what the patient needs to hear
and wants to hear. Giving Penicillin for pneumonia or a water pill
for heart failure is a pretty
straightforward and easy decision
for a physician to make. What to
tell the family and the patient in
a bad news situation continues to
be an individual consideration
with no hard and fast rules.

Picking up
the pieces
Mother Nature’s storms, floods,
and tornados move quickly into
communities, but can leave a lasting wake of devastation and destruction in their paths. We’ve
seen the pictures on the news and
heard the stories about the damage of the flooding in southeast
South Dakota and the wreckage
from the tornado in Wessington
Springs. It is heartbreaking to
watch our neighbors, friends, and
communities prepare for the worst
and react to a lifetime of memories
and hard work destroyed.
Fortunately, South Dakotans
are among the most resilient, generous, and caring people I know.
Disaster reveals our true resolve
and our willingness to help out in
the most difficult circumstances.
We have already seen the support
of hundreds of National Guard
troops, Red Cross volunteers, Federal Emergency Management
Agency staff, firefighters, police,
medical personnel, neighbors, and
friends who have stepped up to
provide shelter, food, and assistance to those in need.
On June 20th, I visited Wessington Springs to survey the
storm and tornado damage with

Helping people
get back to work

Mayor Melissa Mebius. I had the
opportunity to visit with members
of the community who lost their
homes and businesses and learn
what questions they have for federal officials. While the community has a long road ahead, many
of the men and women I talked to
are thankful for their safety, the
support they’ve received, and are
committed to picking up the pieces
and rebuilding.
As we work to provide our communities with needed assistance,
I also recognize the importance of
improving our severe weather
forecasting tools to provide early
and accurate notifications. As
Ranking Member of the Senate
Committee on Commerce, Science,
and Transportation, which has jurisdiction over the National
Weather Service (NWS), I am
committed to looking for opportunities to improve NWS’s severe
weather research, its forecasting
of these devastating events, and
the communication of these forecasts.
While the flood waters recede,
the debris is slowly collected, and
the news articles begin to fade, let
us all remain vigilant in helping
our fellow South Dakotans recover
from the storms and tornados.
Sometimes it takes the worst of
circumstances to bring out our

In South Dakota our unemployment rate is only 3.8 percent.
That’s very low compared to the
national rate of 6.3 percent, and
about half of the rates in California and Illinois. Worse yet, nearly
30 metropolitan areas have unemployment rates of over 10 percent.
South Dakota’s low unemployment rate is in part thanks to the
work ethic of our people. South
Dakotans don’t just love to work,
we live to work. Working hard has
been instilled in us by our ancestors. This becomes more and more
evident to me when I talk to business owners who have locations in
multiple states. They often tell me
their South Dakota locations are
the most productive.
Our low unemployment rate
also has to do with responsible
governance. In South Dakota we
help those who stumble, but we
know we can’t carry those who
choose to lie down. Unlike some
states that allow a person to receive unemployment payments for
almost two years, South Dakota
has kept unemployment insurance as a more temporary assistance program – a program in
which claimants are required to
work hard to find employment.
In May of 2012, the South
Dakota Department of Labor and
Regulation implemented a program for the unemployed called
Re-Employment Intensive Services (RIS). Those unemployed who
have received payments for more
than 10 weeks must engage with

The program helps them identify

two years, 1,854 people who participated in RIS have obtained employment. Only about six percent
of those who participated in RIS
exhausted their UI benefits.
Eighty-seven years ago President Calvin Coolidge and his wife,
Grace, came to South Dakota and
made the State Game Lodge in
Custer their summer White
House. No sitting President has
spent as much time in our state,
but that’s not the only reason I admire Silent Cal. It’s primarily because of something he said, a
phrase that I have taped to my
“Nothing in the world can take
the place of persistence. Talent
will not; nothing is more common
than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded
genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of
educated derelicts. Persistence
and determination alone are omnipotent.”
President Coolidge knew that
people sometimes stumble – there
will be times when we all need
some sort of help – but he knew
we must all press on even when
we do stumble.
That’s exactly why RIS has been
such a success; because it requires
persistence. Through this program we’re helping put people
back to work. Not only so they can
provide for themselves and their
families, but so their self-pride
and sense of accomplishment can
be restored.

Curing the VA
Two months ago, I had the
chance to visit the Hot Springs
Veterans Affairs (VA) Hospital – a
facility I’ve been fighting to keep
open for a number of years now.
This was one of many visits I’ve
done to the facility and others
across the state. Walking the
halls, you find women and men
who are seeking everything from
routine care to help with serious
service-related injuries. Some of
these injuries are visible, but others, like PTSD, are not. No matter
what their needs are, each veteran
is ultimately there for one reason:
to get better.
We’ve made a promise to our
service members that when
they’ve earned the distinction of
being called a “Veteran,” our country will help them get better and
we’ll continue caring for their
health for the rest of their lives.
Our country has failed our veterans in this regard. The fact that
some VA facilities kept secret
waiting lists to improve their reports is downright disgusting and
has led to a full-fledged investigation of VA operations. So far, this
investigation has revealed that
57,000 veterans had to wait at
least 90 days for their first appointment and 13 percent of VA
scheduling staff nationwide had
been instructed to manipulate information so wait times would appear shorter than they actually
The data the VA has collected
on South Dakota reflects much of
what I’ve heard from local veterans and my Veterans Advisory
Board. Many South Dakotans
seem to be fairly happy with local
VA services, but there are some
who have waited months – in extreme cases, years – to get the
care they need and deserve.
South Dakota veterans may not
be facing as many problems as
others across the country, but my
concern is that this is a system-


wide issue, meaning they could be
impacted down the line if corrections aren’t made.
Mending the VA system will
take a multi-pronged approach.
First, the VA needs to undergo a
number of personnel changes. VA
Secretary Eric Shinseki has now
resigned as has Dr. Robert Petzel,
the VA’s Under Secretary for
Health. I also championed legislation that would streamline the
process of firing inefficient bureaucrats at the VA. This bill, H.R.
4031, is now being finalized and
I’m hopeful it will become law in
the coming weeks.
Fundamental adjustments to
VA operations must also be made
and new technologies can help the
VA work more effectively and efficiently. I’m ready to make that investment and have helped pass
VA budget increases to streamline
information sharing between the
VA and the Defense Department.
And because a nine-to-five
workforce just isn’t going to solve
the backlog fast enough, I’ve made
sure funding is set aside so VA
workers can stay in the office until
the job gets done.
These problems won’t be resolved overnight, so I’ve championed legislation that will allow
veterans to get help at non-VA
hospitals and clinics if they live
more than 40 miles from a VA facility or can’t get an appointment
in a reasonable amount of time.
I’m hopeful this will help get veterans service faster while lightening the VA’s caseload so they can
catch up and properly resolve the
underlying issues.
The “secret lists” and bloated
wait times are a huge black mark
on a system set up to help those
who have served our country. I’m
proud that Republicans and Democrats, Congress and the VA
have come together to work
through this problem.
Our veterans deserve better
and I’m committed to seeing that
their health is treated with respect, dignity and urgency.

From the U.S. Senate

Expanding medicaid
is important for S.D.
As a nation, we have taken an
enormous step to ensure that
more Americans are able to access
health care than ever before. In
addition to the coverage made
available through the new health
insurance marketplaces, critical
federal funding is helping to expand our nation’s safety net by enabling many to access health
coverage through expanded state
Medicaid programs.
Unfortunately, South Dakota remains one of 18 states that have
declined federal funding to expand
Medicaid. I believe the continued
refusal to accept this funding is
short-sighted and only serves to
maintain an unnecessary barrier
to care for the 48,000 South
Dakotans who stand to gain
health coverage through Medicaid
In our state, 69 percent of the
uninsured households have at
least one full-time worker. This
means thousands of South
Dakotans are caught in a frustrating trap of earning too much to
qualify for public programs but
not enough to afford the cost of
private insurance. This hardworking population and those facing a job loss deserve assistance.
Not only is it the right thing to
do, but it is also a smart economic
choice. The uninsured have poorer
health and higher rates of costly
hospitalizations. Taxpayers are
currently paying for this coverage.
Health providers are forced to
write off medical bills for patients
who will never be able to pay.
These costs are shifted to insured
patients and result in increased
monthly premiums. A portion of
care for this population is paid by
the state through a general fund.
Why would we turn down the opportunity to shift to a rational system that will provide better care
and save us money in the long

I supported the Affordable Care
Act to ensure improved access to
health coverage and better health
outcomes for all. Expanding Medicaid is crucial to this effort. For
almost 50 years, Medicaid has
provided meaningful health coverage to certain low-income individuals and families. Making
everyone living at or below 138
percent of the Federal Poverty
Level (FPL) eligible for Medicaid
will ensure that even the most
vulnerable among us can access
needed health care.
Under the law, the federal government pays the initial cost of
Medicaid expansion through 2016
for newly-eligible individuals.
This amount incrementally tapers
to 90 percent in 2020 and beyond.
In exchange for this investment of
state funds, more of our citizens
gain access to health care coverage, state uncompensated care
costs would decrease, and our
economy would benefit from the
influx of federal funding and a
healthier workforce.
South Dakota has so far chosen
not to expand our state’s Medicaid
program. I believe this is wrong.
The Centers for Medicare and
Medicaid Services (CMS), the
agency that oversees the federal
portion of Medicaid, has expressed
a willingness to work with states
to identify Medicaid reforms that
fit each state’s circumstances, as
they have done in Arkansas, Iowa
and Michigan. While Governor
Daugaard’s request to submit a
waiver to partially expand South
Dakota’s Medicaid program was
ultimately rejected by CMS, as it
had been when proposed by other
states, this engagement was a
welcome step.
Our fellow South Dakotans deserve access to affordable health
coverage and we, as a state, deserve access to the savings and
benefits this additional coverage
would offer. Finding an appropriate path forward on Medicaid expansion is essential.
