The Philip Volunteer Fire Department presented its annual fireworks display at dusk, Tuesday, July 3, over Lake Waggoner.
Patriotic music was played over 96.7 radio during the fireworks display. Assistant Fire Chief Marty Hansen said that the
crowd seemed to be extra large, possibly due to Philip being one of the few public fireworks displays in western South
Dakota this year due to the extreme fire restrictions. The free will donations helped support the $4,000 cost for the fireworks
and will help to make next year’s display even larger. Photos by Del Bartels

Issues of a possible burn ban and
increasing the city of Philip’s rent
for offices in the courthouse high-
lighted the Haakon County Board
of Commissioners July 3 meeting.
Haakon County Emergency
Manager Lola Roseth asked the
board if they would like to establish
a burn ban in Haakon County.
With the drought and dry grasses,
fires, in numbers and size, could be
bad this year, she said. Also dis-
cussed was a ban on fireworks.
The board opted to not issue a
ban on either matter. By state
statute, the sale of fireworks was
for just two more days, so the board
decided to not act on the matter.
In regards to a burn ban, the
commissioners noted that most
people in the county know of the
high fire danger already. They de-
cided against issuing a resolution
implementing a burn ban. They did
strongly recommend that people
not burn anything and they be ex-
tremely cautious so as to not acci-
dently start fires too.
In the past year the commission-
ers have spoken about increasing
the rent charged to the city of
Philip for office space. The city uses
the south half of the fourth floor,
which includes three office spaces,
one of which is used as storage, and
a restroom. They also occupy one
and one-half rooms on the third
floor for the police department.
The county has charged the city
$60 in rent for all those rooms. Pi-
oneer Review archives reflect that
the city started paying rent in No-
vember of 1975. The November
1975 city minutes reflect a pay-
ment of $90. Between December
1975 and April 1976 the payment
ranged from $88.58 to $102.01,
which also included teletype serv-
ices. From May 1960 on it has
been $60.
In June, during a budget meet-
ing, the commissioners began
adding up what they pay to the city
for water and sewer costs. It was
then that the decision was made to
charge the city $500 for rent.
Added to those figures, at the July
meeting, were, the cost of janitorial
services provided to them, the use
of bathroom paper products, the
fact the city does not have to pay
for snow removal, and other main-
tenance costs.
Philip Mayor Mike Vetter met
with the board to discuss the in-
crease. He stated he thought the
733 percent was “excessive.” He
asked if the increase could be done
in steps. He stated he didn’t dis-
pute the fact that the city’s rent
has to go up. He said that the $500
figure was borderline cost of a new
Commissioner Steve Clements
said he still thought that $500 was
a bargain, to which Commissioner
Rita O’Connell agreed.
Commission Chairman Ed
Briggs stated he believed it was a
plus for the county and the city
being in one building. Commis-
sioner Nick Konst noted that it
would be good if the county and city
met more often to discuss issues
that affect both entities.
O’Connell updated the board on
the meeting she attended in
Kakoka regarding drivers licens-
ing. The Jackson County Board of
Commissioners held the meeting to
discuss the cost and feasibility of
them continuing the service.
Haakon County Sheriff Fred
Koester informed the board that he
is certified to give the actual driv-
ing portion of the test. The commis-
sion asked him to check with the
state and see if he could do the
drivers licensing in Haakon
Auditor Pat Freeman informed
the board that she had spoken with
Deene Dayton, director of local gov-
ernment at the South Dakota De-
partment of Legislative Audit.
Freeman reported that Dayton had
told her that after reviewing state
statutes, he did not find anything
that said the county could purchase
a home in which a county employee
could live.
The commission will explore the
issue further as they would really
like to have a highway department
employee stationed at the county’s
shop at Robb’s Flat. With the Deep
Creek School reopening they be-
lieve it is imperative that an em-
ployee be there.
Roseth updated the board on ac-
tivities in emergency management.
She said they are now being re-
quired to submit a list of people
who can help organize efforts in a
disaster. Freeman noted that the
emergency generator had been re-
paired and serviced.
Toni Rhodes, director of equal-
ization, noted that a company had
approached her in regards to them
purchasing information compiled
by her office. She noted the county
could make $14,000 to $15,000 in
funds if the information was sold.
She said it was all public informa-
tion. Clements noted that this had
been discussed earlier and the tax-
payers do not want the information
Val Williams, administrative as-
sistant for the highway depart-
ment, spoke for the department
since Kenny Neville had recently
had surgery and was unable to at-
tend the meeting. She notified the
board of an issue with a cattle
guard that went missing. A
landowner had removed the cattle
guard after a cow had become
trapped. The pit was cleaned out
and the cattle guard was re-in-
stalled by the landowner.
Sheryl Hansen reported on
events in the 4-H office. She noted
the issues that have developed
with the four county system. She
said that Jones and Mellette coun-
ties were taking the majority of
Carrie Weller’s time and leaving
Haakon County out of the loop. As
of now, she did not know if all the
counties would want to renew the
contract for next year. The commis-
sion asked her to set up a meeting
between the four counties to dis-
cuss the future of the cluster.
Reports were reviewed from the
sheriff, veterans service officer and
weed supervisor. The board re-
viewed the contract with Kone, Inc.
for the elevator servicing.
The board approved the supple-
mental hearing for adding monies
to the jail and mentally ill funds.
They also approved transfering
$4,125 from a weed and pest grant
into the weed budget.
The board approved meeting
minutes from May 5, with correc-
tions, June 7 and June 19. War-
rants were approved.
The board will meet in special
session to work on the budget
Tuesday, July 17. Their next regu-
lar meeting is Tuesday, August 7.
Commissioners discuss
burn ban, city’s office rent
by Del Bartels
The Philip City Council meeting,
Monday, July 2, included an emer-
gency executive session to begin
replacing Rose Bennett as the
swimming pool manager.
Bennett turned in her resigna-
tion, having taken a full time posi-
tion elsewhere. Though Bennett
was not present, Mayor Mike Vet-
ter thanked her for five years of
service, and said, “She’s done a
good job out there.” The Health
and Recreation Committee has
been authorized to hire a new pool
manager without consulting the
full city council. Finance Officer
Monna Van Lint said that in the
mean time, “Any concerns received
usually end up at the finance office
any way.”
The city has been informed that
its office rent in the Haakon
County Courthouse of $60 per
month has been raised to $500 per
month. Van Lint agreed that the
city has been getting by pretty
cheap for quite a few years, but the
percentage of increase is quite a
jump. Vetter was to visit with the
county commissioners to ask to
have the increase spread out over
several years.
The city’s gross salaries for June
totaled $30,323.61. The city’s per-
centages of insurance, retirement
and withholding added another
$8,946.94. The total for all other
bills came to $45,962.24, which in-
cludes over $4,098 for residential
garbage collection.
The council approved the first
reading of Ordinance #2012-09,
which establishes a tax formula to
promote the construction and im-
provement of structures within the
city of Philip. In brief, any new
commercial construction of over
$30,000 and any new residential
construction of over $5,000 will be
assessed the first year at only 20
percent. The second year will be at
40 percent, and so forth. The fifth
year after construction, the tax as-
sessment will be at 100 percent.
This new ordinance affects build-
ing and improvements reflected in
the taxing period beginning No-
vember 1, 2011.
The Haakon County Young
Women will apply for Game, Fish
and Parks’ land and water conser-
vation grant to improve the Philip
tennis court. If the grant is re-
ceived, the HCYW must have the
city administer the grant. Im-
provements would include a ten-
nis/volleyball net, basketball hoops
and an all-weather rubber flooring.
Also, the HCYW have received
council permission for use of the
swimming pool’s restrooms by Kid-
die Park patrons from 7:00 a.m. to
7:00 p.m. Mondays through Fri-
days. Thursdays will be extended
to 9:00 p.m. for the month of July
during “Hot Summer Nights.”
Weekend hours will be 11:00 a.m.
to 7:00 p.m. This permission is sea-
sonal, since the Philip school sys-
tem leases the concession stand
and restrooms during football sea-
son. HCYW will negotiate with the
school board for use during the fall
months. Mayor Mike Vetter said,
“We have a great park down there.
It would be a shame to lessen it be-
cause of no bathrooms available.”
Improvement work will cause
the Philip airport to be shut down
for five to six weeks, probably be-
ginning in September. The federal
government will pay 90 percent
and the state will pay eight per-
cent on the projects. Philip’s two
percent bill will be approximately
Harlan Quenzer, with
Schmucker, Paul, Nohr and Asso-
ciates, reviewed Philip’s proposed
Wood and Walden Avenues and
Pine Street and Wray Avenue proj-
ects. If the first project could not
include the entire cul-de-sac where
there presently are no buildings on
Walden Avenue, and if the asphalt
depth could be reduced from six
inches to four inches, then it is es-
timated that $91,000 could be
saved. “We are sitting here with a
loan available in front of us,” said
Vetter. He noted that the council
was trying to save costs and reduce
the Walden project so the city
could start the Pine Street and
Wray Avenue project sooner.
A temporary fix to the Pine
Street and Wray Avenue surfaces
would cost approximately
$140,000 for four inches of asphalt
overlay. “To do it right, you have to
first seal all the cracks and fix the
soft spots,” said Quenzer, “or the
10 years life expectancy will drop
to around five years.” He noted,
“It’s going south in a hurry. It was
bad, but its getting worse.” Quen-
zer stressed, “It would be a sacrifi-
cial fix, knowing that when we
come in to do the project we would
have to tear it up.” The eventual
Pine Street and Wray Avenue proj-
ect calls for a concrete base.
Council member Greg Arthur
said that he wished the statement
would have been clearly made be-
fore the bond election that an as-
sessment for curb and gutter
would be applied to taxes on bor-
dering properties. On a roll call
vote, the council tied on placing a
special assessment on the street
project properties. Vetter broke the
vote in favor of the special assess-
Though precedent has been set
for landowners paying for curb and
gutter, they have paid only 40 per-
cent when the project was covered
by a grant. In a 6-2 vote, the coun-
cil agreed that the city will give the
landowners a 60 percent discount
on the curb and gutter costs.
The council approved the sale of
a general obligation bond to fi-
nance improvements to the storm
drainage system. Payments will go
through the First National Bank
in Sioux Falls. Along with these
improvements, cleaning and tele-
vising the pipe system will be done
for the maintenance of existing
pipes. The service includes DVDs
of the viewed pipes, with connec-
tions and potential weak spots
being marked. The council ac-
cepted a bid quote from A-Tech,
Watertown, of under $9,400.
“You’re not going to get it any
cheaper. A-Tech is one of the best
in the state,” said Quenzer.
Sales taxes for Philip from Jan-
uary through June for 2012 were
over $221,096. For the same time
period in 2011, sales taxes for
Philip were over $180,828. “Thank
everyone for shopping locally, as
John Hart (previous mayor) would
say. Thank the businesses for
being available,” said Vetter.
Budget meetings are set for July
Building permits were approved
for Twila Hook to replace a well
pit, for Kay Williams to repair a
foundation and to replace a con-
crete pad and deck, and for Karen
Kroetch to remove a fence, flower
beds, pond, ramps and cement
slabs and to replace a privacy
fence. Approval was given for Dale
and Tami Morrison to demolish a
structure, with the city hauling the
rubble away at 75 cents per square
foot. The council’s approval for the
Morrisons to build a new structure
is contingent upon them also get-
ting South Dakota Department of
Transportation approval for street
access improvement.
The storm-ravaged tree at the
east end of Fire Hall Park will be
brought the rest of the way down.
Arthur said, “It’s a good shade
tree, but dangerous now.”
The swimming pool attendance
is currently more than it was for
all of the year 2009. E r i n
Fitzgerald was approved as a vol-
unteer water safety instructor.
Following a reported fall by a pa-
tron, a railing has been installed
along the handicap ramp and the
curb around the sidewalk will be

League elected officials workshop

City loses pool manager, hit
with office space rent increase
Philip’s “Hot Summer Nights” started July 5, which are every Thursday in the
Haakon County Young Women’s Kiddie Park. Local farmers market booths are
set up starting at 6:00 p.m. Then at 7:00 p.m., there is live music and karaoke.
Mike Seager is providing the sound system. The first night featured the singing
of Cord Terkildsen and Marcus Martinez. Volunteer performers should call Brit-
tney Drury at 859-2516. Shown above are some of the youth dancing the

Friday the 13th ... by Del Bartels
In the musical “Fiddler on the Roof,” the main character laments
about the loss of tradition ... in 1905. Today, tradition is a wispy rem-
nant of old times. In many instances, it has become folklore and fable.
Friday the 13th is a hang-on, one of many that are downgraded to just
another day with a slight quirk. Hopefully things like May baskets,
four leaf clovers, “something blue, something borrowed,” and others
will not be completely forgotten. Maybe, just maybe, some of those tra-
ditions will see a comeback.
It used to be that three generations would help run the family farm.
Now farms are being sold and the proceeds divided because offspring
don’t want to work the land. Brides still wear white dresses, even if
their children are the flower girl and the ring bearer. A “ma and pa
business” often had the living quarters on the second floor. It was
cheaper, and thieves weren’t as much of a problem. “Sunday and go-
to-meeting” clothes no longer have any special significance. We have
gone from “a child should be seen and not heard” and “don’t contradict
your elders” to delinquents who don’t respect even themselves.
As one splinter after another of any tradition is whittled away or for-
gotten, then we lose something of what our ancestors once held close.
Think it through; if parental blessings, great-grandmother’s ring, a
white dress, rice thrown after the shared vows, are ignored, then how
much longer until marriage itself is ignored? If traditional recipes from
the homeland are not handed down or remembered, how much longer
until they are replaced by the microwave and fast foods? How many
generations will it take for the “Westward Ho” independence to become
the welfare state? Lincoln’s time of reading by candlelight and life-long
friendships is becoming the modern time of X-boxes and 1,573 friends
on Facebook. “A penny saved is a penny earned” is now massive credit
card debt. An old fashioned house raising is now having neighbors who
don’t even know each other’s names. A solemn love of country has be-
come people thinking the last line of the national anthem is “play ball”
or “start your engines!”
The Pilgrims may be thought of as set in their ways and minimalis-
tic, but they truly knew each other. “A one-horse open sleigh” may be
just a quaint line in a song, but it once was romantic as well as practi-
cal. Oral histories through storytellers were once held in high regard.
In order to have a family Bible, you have to have a core family ... and
a Bible. Does anybody actually keep a diary anymore?
The poem “Ask not for whom the bell tolls” comes to mind. Friday
the 13th, Sadie Hawkins Day, May Day, April Fools, all have their his-
tory and traditions. If they go, then like slow motion dominoes so will
go Thanksgiving and Christmas. Friday the 13th might be an appro-
priate day to remember traditions, or at least recognize the unlucky
passing away of them.
This 1954 Chevy 6500 flatbed truck is owned by Stan and Dixie Thorson, Hayes.
Having it retored “was number one on my bucket list,” said S. Thorson. The actual
work was shared by Tom Konst doing the mechanic work, Dwilyn (Pee Wee) and
Toby Hook doing the paint work, and John Heltzel doing the woodwork for the
flatbed. S. Thorson had the work done in Philip because, “Philip is kind of a going
little town. Philip is a good little town. “He saw the truck in a junkyard a couple of
years ago. Restoration began last November and was completed July 3, in time
for Thorson and his good buddy, Johnny Bothwell, to drive the truck in Fort Pierre’s
Fourth of July parade. The truck’s “In My Time” theme includes a bar scene on
the flatbed, complete with chairs purchased from Philip’s old Pizza Etc.
Restoration done locally
Fourth of July fun in Milesville
The community of Milesville held its annual get-together for Fourth of July celebrations, Wednesday evening, July 4. The
traditional roast beef was provided, with a fundraiser for the hall held with an auction of the remaining roasts. All auction
and free will proceeds went to helping with the maintenance of the Mileville Hall. Treats included homemade ice cream
and birthday cake. Games were held in the Milesville Park
for kids of all ages, with the big draw being a mutton bust-
ing exhibition by the braver youth. At dusk, a fireworks dis-
play was provided by the Milesville Volunteer Fire Depart-
ment. Photos by Bartels

A large teepee has been set up by
Darrel Terkildsen on his property
west of Lake Waggoner.
“The grand kids were home, they
wanted to camp in it,” said Terkild-
sen. He also wanted to “get the
kinks out of it.”
Wanting to entertain his grand-
children – he has eight of them –
may be a good reason for setting up
the teepee and leaving it set up for
maybe another week. But how he
got the tent is a story in itself. It
was given to him by a family
friend, Enos Poor Bear, Sr.
“He was the chief of all chiefs, at
one time,” said Terkildsen. “He was
president of the Pine Ridge Indian
Reservation. He was pretty impor-
tant at one time. They always
make the chief’s teepee big.” The
Terkildsens had once leased Poor
Bear’s place. “Dad did when I was
a kid,” said Terkildsen. Poor Bear
had given the Terkildsens the
teepee as a gift from a family
friend. Later, said Terkildsen, the
gift was temporarily loaned back,
to be used for Poor Bear’s wake.
Born sometime in 1922, he passed
away in 1991 at the age of 69.
The teepee is large. Terkildsen
said that it can comfortably sleep
15 people. “We’ve had 35 in it at
one time, but not sleeping,” he said.
It is make of canvas. According to
Terkildsen, such material was ac-
quired in some manner from cov-
ered wagons, because that canvas
was lighter than whatever else
could have had been used back
then. Currently, the floor of the
teepee is a somewhat matching
tarp. Above and to the left of the
teepee’s entrance are the words,
“Welcome. The robe is spread and
the pipe is lit.

The Forty and Eight presented this year’s donation of $50 to the Haakon/Jackson
4-H Shooting Sports, during the Milesville Fourth of July celebration. “It’s a big
help,” said shooting instructor Jim Harty. “It’s the little things it helps pick up.”
With approximately 17 shooting club members, “it’s growing bigger every year,”
said Harty. Shown, from left: Les Pearson, Bailey Anders, Harty, Philip Pearson

I don’t know if I should even at-
tempt to write the news this week.
It has been one of those weeks,
when some days I should have
stayed in the house.
First, I don’t see well in the sun-
light after putting drops in my
eyes, but it would be okay to go out-
doors and do something in the
yard, as I know my yard pretty well
don’t I? Wrong.
I loaded up a big paper box that
the hot water heater came in and
then went over to the trash tank to
unload some old exhaust pipe off
the old heater. Then I came back to
the shop to get a wrench that I
needed. I should have went around,
but decided to back up.
Looking out my side-view mirror,
I thought I was doing good. Now,
my endgate was down and the big
box was blocking my view, I backed
up missing the corner post, but
backed over the water meter.
It was a complete and total
wreck. Oh my gosh, what now? I
had better go to the house and call
the rural water office and tell them
what I had done. Was I ever em-
barrassed. I apologized, but still
felt terrible as they had to come all
the way out and put in a new

and I am staying the house!
Sympathy goes out to the family
of Dennis Kennedy. His funeral
was last Tuesday and there was a
large attendance. He had been ac-
tive in many areas and he made
many friends wherever he went.
He was a good businessman and
our family bought many vehicles
from him. He always did his best to
satisfy his customers. I attended
the service and got to visit with
John and Doris Billington who
have been longtime christian
It was Alice Eide, Kenneth’s sis-
ter, who helped them get a job over-
seas where they spent many years
teaching in Germany. I first met
Doris when she was teaching home
economics in Sturgis. Our class
from Sundance went over to a spe-
cial lesson she was teaching.
John and Doris were going to
leave early as they were to attend
a special reunion honoring the
teachers of Sturgis that evening.
So many of the older generations
of Kennedy’s who were Kenneth’s
age have passed away, but they
were a family who grew up in the
Grindstone area and took part in
all the community gatherings in
the neighborhood at the Grind-
stone Hall. Some of them went to
high school at Cottonwood.
Mark Ford, former minister of
the United Church, was back for
Denny’s funeral and I got to visit
briefly with him. He was trying to
see as many old friends as he could
in the short time he was here.
Mavin Eide came home from
Denny’s funeral and got his fire
truck out and went to a fire at Jack
Griesel’s. But he met many people
coming back and they told him that
it was out. It was a tree that light-
ning had struck a couple of nights
prior and smoldered and finally
burst into flames. No damage was
done and it was contained in the
All of Rich and Gladys Smith’s
kids were home last weekend and
they all enjoyed being together
again. Gladys got to go out home
and enjoy them all. Steve and
Roxie and their daughter, Dawn,
were staying at Kieth Smiths while
they were here and the rest stayed
either at Rich and Gladys’ or with
other family.
I visited with Colleen’s husband
and he was anxious to go home as
he was afraid of the fire situation
in Montana as it is dry there too.
I have been back to the early
days, as my hot water heater went
bad and could not replace it till
after the holiday. I was heating
water in the teakettle to do dishes
and by shutting my bathroom door
on the hot days, a cool shower felt
good. My nephew, Mel Smith, came
to my rescue and had me up and

with her cousins, the Fitch boys, at
Milesville while she was here visit-
ing her grandparents, Vickie and
Marvin Eide. Her mom, Carla, and
Taegan came and got her over the
Fourth of July holiday. As always,
it was a goodbye and we will be
back the first chance we get. Of
course, I get to see them also when
they are here. Kiley helps me a lot
when she comes. She gets lots done
for an 11-year-old girl. She also
spent some time at her great-
grandparents, Cliff and Rita Ram-
I visited with my niece, Vina
Morris, who lives in Newcastle,
Wyo., and she said that they were
getting smoke from both the Sun-
dance and the Newcastle fires. She
said that it was hard to breath with
all the smoke so she had just been
staying indoors. Where they live,
they were out of danger.
She said the people there said
that the flames of the fire were
high in the air, but stated that she
hadn’t seen them. They retire early
as Ben has to leave for work at five
in the morning. Later, after talking
to her, the radio said that they had
contained both fires. I understood
that rain helped them with this.
Yes, we still need to pray for rain
because it is very dry and the fire
danger is not over yet.
I understand that Lee Schoniger
had a birthday celebration in Rapid
City. I couldn’t get him for informa-
tion, but understand the dance
club, Mel and Beth Smith, grand-
daughter, America, and Lee’s
daughter, Marylyn, and husband of
Newcastle also attended. The older
generation of gentlemen asked
America to dance and she accepted
and had the time of her life danc-
I went into town for the shower
for Rachelle Hauk. There was a
nice crowd ther and she recieved an
array of gift. Later, Norma Olden-
berg and I enjoyed lunch downtown
and returned to her house and she
called Marlin Evans to come up tne
try out some new tea flavors she
had purchased.
We enjoyed a tea tasting party
and my favorite was the cinnamon
tea, it was very good. Marlin had to
leave early as she was expecting
her son, Jack, who was going to
drop in for a visit on his way home
to Rapid City. He has been fencing
for Dalys east of Philip.

Glyphosate Resistant Kochia
Glyphosate resistant kochia was
first confirmed in South Dakota in
the Gettysburg area in 2009. A few
additional cases were confirmed in
2010 and 2011. In 2012, resistant
populations seemed to expand
greatly and it appears to exist in
Tripp County. Seed from suspected
plants are planned to be submitted
to SDSU for testing later this sum-
mer. One agronomist stated that
he will likely treat all soybean
fields as if the kochia is glyphosate
resistant next year. This change in
kochia may justify more aggres-
sive management in soybeans and
rotational crops.
Kochia has two weaknesses
which must be exploited. One is
that kochia seed has very little
dormancy as seed may only sur-
vive in the soil for a couple years.
The second weakness is that
kochia emerges very early in the
spring, so populations could be
greatly depleted in no-till fields
using an effective burndown herbi-
Mike Moechnig, SDSU Exten-
sion Weed Specialist, suggests
management strategies for
glyphosate resistant kochia. A
good burndown herbicide program
that includes foliar and soil resid-
ual activity may greatly minimize
plants emerging later in the sea-
son. A soil residual herbicide will
be necessary to control glyphosate
resistant kochia in soybeans. Since
the seed does not survive long in
the soil, it will be important to ag-
gressively control kochia in rota-
tional crops such as corn or wheat.
Kochia will not likely be eradi-
cated from a field, but greatly de-
pleting the seed bank may allow
adequate control in Roundup
Ready soybeans with a soil resid-
ual herbicide followed by a post-
emergence tank mix partner if nec-
essary. Also, consider alternatives
such as Liberty Link soybeans.

kochia and other troublesome
weeds, visit “South Dakota Weeds”

Canada Thistle in S.D.
Canada thistle is the most trou-
blesome noxious weed in South
Dakota. That is certainly true in
south-central South Dakota as I
see numerous patches in my trav-
els between home and my office in
Winner. Populations increased ex-
ponentially from the 1950's to
2000. Since then, populations have
remained somewhat steady at
about 1.5 - 1.8 million acres.
Populations have likely been
kept steady due to declining acres
of pasture and grasslands (result-
ing from increased crop produc-
tion) and the introduction of new,
more effective, herbicides. There
are few sustainable methods to
control Canada thistle. Biocontrol
options are limited due to Canada
thistle's close relationship to na-
tive thistles. Thick grass can com-
pete well with Canada thistle, but
disturbances due to grazing or
haying can enable patches to
spread. To really deplete Canada
thistle, all land owners need to ag-
gressively control patches.
An effective control program
consists of proper choice of herbi-
cides, proper timing of applica-
tions, and persistence. For detailed
information on herbicides and ap-
plication timing, visit “South
Dakota Weeds” at: www.mikes

The Board of Directors of South
Dakota Agriculture and Rural
Leadership (SDARL) has an-
nounced the selection of 30 mem-
bers for Class VII.
These 30 individuals will begin
their leadership experience in No-
vember 2012. This unique program
is designed to provide leadership
training to rural residents from
farming, ranching, agri-industry
and agricultural organizations.
The goal is for participants in gain-
ing the vision, knowledge, confi-
dence and commitment necessary
to assume leadership roles in
South Dakota’s rural communities
and agricultural industry.
Lori Cope, executive director
said. “it is a very comprehensive
agenda combining leadership de-
velopment with hands-on field ex-
perience that teaches individuals
every aspect of agriculture that
South Dakota has to offer.”
Participants gain firsthand
knowledge of agricultural trends,
key issues and the availability for
ag development in South Dakota.
They come away from a SDARL ex-
perience better equipped to serve
on boards, volunteer within their
communities, and increased ana-
lytical and strategic planning skills
for assessing an ever-changing en-
Throughout the 18-month pro-
gram experience, participants will
participate in 10 in-state seminars,
one national study seminar to
Washington, D.C. and a two-week
international study seminar. These
are all centered on local, regional,
national and international agricul-
ture. The SDARL program is a pri-
vate/public partnership funded
through tuition and sponsorships.
The participants selected for
Class VII SDARL experience in-
clude Ryan Kjerstad, Wall.
SDARL’s class VI, 2010, included
Codi Mills, Sturgis, editor of the
Cattle Business Weekly.
Codi Mills, Sturgis, editor of the Cattle
Business Weekly and a member of the

The recent high temperatures,
wind and lack of significant precip-
itation have led to an expansion of
drought across South Dakota.
In this week’s U.S. Drought
Monitor, over 47 percent of the
state is now considered to be in
moderate drought and just over
three percent is in severe drought,
according to Laura Edwards, South
Dakota State University Extension
climate field specialist. Nearly the
entire state’s area, almost 96 per-
cent, is in some state of drought or
dry condition.
The recent month has intensified
drought development as dry, warm
and windy conditions have affected
nearly every corner of the state.
Two notable exceptions are the Wa-
tertown area and far northern Cor-
son county, which have experi-
enced close to average rainfall this
season. Impacts abound in the
agricultural, livestock and natural
resources sectors.
Corn and soybean growth has
begun to slow down, as reports of
leaf curling and other water stress
in row crops have come in from
many areas of eastern South
Dakota. Water stress can be yield-
reducing at this time of year, as
corn approaches the tasseling
stage. Stock dams and water re-
sources for livestock are lower than
normal for this time of year. Grass
and alfalfa cutting for hay has
yielded less than normal amounts
this year as well, at least in part
due to drought.
Wildland fire activity in western
South Dakota has also been above
normal for this time of year.
Grasses and other fuels have expe-
rienced significant growth over the
last couple of years, with the last
several months providing optimum
conditions for curing those fuels
and creating extreme fire danger in
many areas.
June 2012 climate records verify
the dry and warm conditions that
were experienced across much of
the state. Vermillion and Canton
had their driest June on record.
Menno, Sioux Falls and Yankton
recorded their second driest June
on record. None of these cities had
more than an inch of rain in June.
Climate reporting locations in the
northwest, northeast, and south-
east were the driest. Aberdeen,
Belle Fourche and several other lo-
cations reported more than 2.25
inches below average rain for the
Several locations tied or set new
June all-time high daily tempera-
ture records, including Martin,
Edgemont, Rapid City, Lead and
Hill City. Nearly every climate re-
porting site reported above average
temperature for the month, as
much as eight degrees above aver-
age in the western part of the state.
Most locations were two to six de-
grees above average for the month.

Mitigation Center's Drought Im-

The World Trade Organization
has issued their final ruling on the
case brought by Canada and Mex-
ico against the United States
mandatory Country of Origin La-
beling law (COOL) for beef and
pork and appealed by the United
Like the original decision, the
appellate ruling upholds the right
of the United States to require
COOL and reversed the original
ruling which stated that U.S.
COOL laws were too restrictive
and caused barriers to trade. The
appellate panel did not rule,
thereby upholding, the lower pan-
els finding that specific rules for
implementing COOL and labeling
beef and pork did cause restrictive
barriers and imposed burdens on
Canadian cattle.
“There is a lot to be positive
about in this ruling,” said Shane
Kolb, Meadow, president of South
Dakota Stockgrowers. “We now
know we have COOL and the ap-
pellate panel did uphold our right
to provide labeling information to
our customers. Stockgrowers has
fought long and hard to see COOL
implemented in the United States
and I think this ruling confirms the
principle and the right to label our
products and let our customers de-
cide the origin of the food that is on
their dinner plate.”
Kolb continued, “Of course Stock-
growers is frustrated with the deci-
sion by the WTO panels to strike
down certain rules within the
COOL law, and we definitely don’t
like to see an international court
override rules made by the United
States for our citizens. However,
now that we have a final ruling, we
can get to work fixing the concerns
in our COOL rules and working to
strengthen COOL for our cus-
Canada and Mexico successfully
argued that the rule for segregat-
ing livestock at slaughter created
additional costs to the imported
livestock and thereby created an
unfair bias against those food
items. The ruling also impacts the
process for labeling meat of mixed
“At this point, we know that we
have COOL and we know that we
have the right to continue that law.
That’s all good news,” said Kolb.
“The details of how we create the
label are obviously going to need
some adjustment. Stockgrowers
are committed to making sure that
COOL works for both our cus-
tomers and our producers and
we’re going to do all we can to
make sure that happens.”=

Friday, June 29, Shawn and Inez
and I tackled a new game of quid-
dler. It is a word game with some
cards having single letters and
some having letter combinations
such as er, ed cl. Players try to form
a word or two or more and have one
card left to discard. In that case he
can go out. Cards have various val-
ues. The player who wins adds up
his points and they are recorded.
Other players have one more
chance to make what they can, and
that counts for them. And they sub-
tract what is left in their hands.
There are rules about dealing the
shuffled cards. They are dealt one
card at a time. Three cards the first
hand, four the second and so on up
to 10. Then you start over with
three. Other points are given for
the longest word and for the most
words. You have to play it, to learn

My daughter, Carol Vogan, who
lives about 10 miles east of Col-
orado Springs, emails about the
drastic fire in Manitou Springs.
The smoke is strong, even at their
place. In their neighborhood, peo-
ple are making relief packages for
survivors whose houses have
burned. My son, Hans P. Hansen,
who lives at Spruce House in Col-
orado Springs, is even closer to the
fires. The residents there are re-
stricted from taking walks. Our
United States president was in Col-
orado Springs to observe.
My nephew, Leonard Meyer,
Greenfield, Ind., sent a fascinating
email about the Fibonacci numbers
(1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55 and so on.)
Each new number being the sum of
the last two. The rhythm is fol-
lowed by pine cones, pineapple,

Gwen, and husband Gary Morgan,
Woodbridge, Va. There had been a
big storm there and parts of the
town were without electricity.
Gwen’s daughter, Melissa, hus-
band Breck and daughter Teagan
Snively, Gillette, Wyo., are visiting
at Gwen’s.
I wrote to my daughter Vinnie,
and sent some photos of the rock
work of my father, Rolla Palmer, at
the Palmer homestead in the
Grindstone country, 25 miles
northwest of Philip. Some of the
huge rocks he hauled, together
with two horses and a stoneboat,
are still in place. There is the
blacksmith shop and smokehouse
attached, the granary floor, and
parts of the north wall of the barn
that was built in the teens and
1920s against the hillside.
Monday at Somerset Court, we
had morning exercises, then crafts
with Amy. The project was scratch-
offs of patriotic symbols such as
flags and a lady bug dressed in red,
white and blue. Thank you to Amy,
who volunteers her time. Amy
checks our word search puzzles and
delivers Somerset bucks and puts
out a new set of puzzles.
Wayne Hansen came over and
stayed for lunch. He brought two of
my favorite little perch, all caught
and cleaned and fried and ready to

The Monday movie, “Andre” was
quite appealing. A family adopted

was some rule that a family could
not keep a wild animal, and Andre
was taken away, but kept coming

realizing some times unusual vari-

Arnold Matt___________________________________
Arnold Matt, age 86, passed away
peacefully at his home in New Un-
derwood with family at his side on
Wednesday, July 4, 2012. He lived,
loved and laughed well.
Arnold Arthur Matt was born
September 22, 1925, in a farm
house to Joseph and Selma Martin-
son Matt in the Elk Vale commu-
nity north of Rapid City. In 1928,
he moved with his parents and sib-
lings, Gladys and Julius to his
mother’s homestead in the Boneita
Springs area close to the Belle
Fourche River. His brother, Henry,
was born in 1933.
Arnold received his elementary
education at four different schools
where he had to board with other
families that lived closer to the
schools. His boyhood was spent
helping with chores, swimming in
the river, hunting and trapping as
well as inventing things to make
work and fun easier.
When Arnold was 17, he bought
land from Ole Olson and dug a well
on it by hand. He worked on
ranches and farms. Soon after he
leased the Ole Olson home place
and moved in there.
In 1948, on February 14, Arnold
married Elsie Boydston Arneson at
the home of her sister and brother-
in-law, Ardis and Justin Speer.
They made their home on the
Olson place until 1949, when they
moved a house onto their land on a
basement that Arnold dug with the
help of others. Additional buildings
were added for poultry, hogs,
sheep, cattle, etc.
Arnold worked not only on farms
and ranches, but also on the mis-
sile sites. His life revolved around
the Boneita Springs community
where he was president of the
school board in District #7 for 11
years. He helped with the upkeep
of the Boneita Springs School and
the Boneita Springs Church and
Cemetery. Arnold received an ap-
preciation trophy for his work in
the community. He attended his
children’s activities at school and 4-
H. He irrigated land that he leveled
himself on the river bottom. Arnold
farmed and ranched as well, with
the help of his family. He helped
his neighbors with branding, car-
pentry, harvesting or whatever
they needed help with, including
witching for water with a just right
willow branch.
Arnold chauffeured his children
many times after they went to New
Underwood to high school. He was
a great and creative do-it-your-
selfer. He loved finding all the
things to collect for his museum.
After his breathing limited his
outdoor work, he leased the ranch
to sons, Stanley and Kenny Matt,
and started doing woodworking. He
and Elsie sold his creations at craft
shows and out of their home.
In 2000, they began spending
winters in their present home in
New Underwood. In 2004, they
moved in permanently and have
enjoyed visiting and having friends
and families stop in. As his health
deteriorated, he became house-
bound, but still enjoyed company.
Arnold was tall in stature and
large in the hands, his laugh was
loud and infectious, and would
make people laugh who may not
have even heard the joke! He was
always quick to joke and tease.
Preceding him in death were his
parents; his sister, Gladys, and her
husband, Charles Brassfield; his
brother, Julius; a daughter-in-law,
Vicki Matt; a son-in-law, Wayne
Bloom; two grandsons, Justin Matt
and Trent Matt; a great-grand-
daughter, Maci Oyler; two
nephews, Dennis Matt and Allen
Matt; a niece, Diana Matt-Gehrels;
and in-laws, Cecil and Alice Boyd-
ston, Ardis Speer and Ruth Boyd-
He leaves behind his wife of 64
years, Elsie, and nine children,
Marion (Darlene) Matt, Cliff (Judy)
Matt, Dixie (Dave) Oyler, Ron
(Tonya) Matt, Stanley (Glenda)
Matt, Kenny (Cindy) Matt, Mar-
lene (Paul) Montoya, Beverly
(Wade) Wootton, Bonnie (Steve)
Yearous, 24 grandchildren and 30
great-grandchildren. He also
leaves his brother, Henry (Annette)
Matt, in-laws, Charles (Margaret)
Boydston, Justin Speer and Alys
Services were held Saturday,
July 7, at the Central Meade
County Community Center at
Union Center with Pastor Harold
Delbridge officiating.
Burial was in the Boneita
Springs Cemetery.
A memorial has been estab-
lished to the Central Meade
County Community Center for air

line guestbook at www.kirkfuner-
Jewel J. Coverdale________________
Jewel J. Coverdale, age 100, of
Midland, died Wednesday, July 4,
2012, at the Hans P. Peterson Me-
morial Hospital in Philip.
Jewel J. Belkstrom was born
January 30, 1912, in western Stan-

Charles and Amanda (Fetter) Belk-
strom. She grew up in the Stanley
County area and attended rural

their married life. Her husband,
Art, preceded her in death in 1988.
Jewel continued to make her home
on the farm-ranch 17 miles north of
Midland, until moving into an as-
sisted living center in Pierre in
2002. In June 2008, she moved to

Philip, and later moved to the
Philip Nursing Home, where she

Midland News
Hope everyone had a safe and
enjoyable Fourth of July. Fire-
works were always a part of the
Fourth of July, but due to it being
so extremely dry this year, people
were advised not to set off those
fireworks. The Midland Commer-
cial Club used to put on a fireworks
display each year for a number of
years. Mom, Phil and I would come
to the home of Lyle and Ida Hunt
to watch those fireworks with their
family and other relatives. And, if
I remember correctly, there were a
good many others on that hill as
well. As most of you know, Lyle and
Ida lived on a hill on the northwest
side of Midland, so a person had a
great view of those fireworks. Good
And speaking of Lyle and Ida,
our son, Les, and his wife, Jolene,
had come from Monroe, N.C., for a
family visit. Les, Jolene and I went
to Philip on business one day and
stopped in at the nursing home.
We had a good visit and some good
laughs as the bathing suit beauties
at the water hole, which included
Ida and some of her sisters, was
brought up. Les asked Ida where
she met Lyle. “At the water hole,”
she said. “And when he saw me, he
never looked any further, he said I
was the one he was going to
marry.” We had to give her some
good natured ribbing over that and
we all had a good laugh. It was an
enjoyable visit. We also stopped in
to see Roy Roseth. Duane Roseth
was there visiting his dad so made
it nice to also visit with him. He
couldn’t remember the last time he
had seen Les, and vice versa. We
have some good memories of the
Roseth family and ours. It was an
enjoyable visit all the way around.
Winter wheat harvest is slowing
down, but some still have wheat to
cut. It has been a strange year. You
would think with the heat we have
been having, all wheat would be
ready to cut but some fields are
still too green. Millet and corn
crops are in need of a hearty drink.
Those hot windy days with little to
no rain are taking a toll on those
crops as well as pastures. The pas-
tures with their short grasses are
turning brown in this area and hay
bales are in short supply. Some
folks baled up their wheat fields
which had been damaged by hail
making combining it not an option.
The Arizona winter we had this
past year was nice at the time, but
we are paying for it now. And with
such a short supply of rains this
spring and summer, the country is
not looking a bit good. Remember
last spring with all those rains
making the country lush and
green? And we also had snow the
previous winter. If you’ve been a
farmer or rancher for a number of
years, you’ve come to realize that is
a way of life. You have those lush
years and those lean years. Hope-
fully we get that much needed rain
very soon, as soon it will be too late.
Midland Market’s pre-Fourth of
July was a most enjoyable evening
at Midland’s City Park on July 1.
Temperatures being hot through-
out the day, it was surprising how
nice it was that evening. Pastor
Andy and Morris Daly entertained
people throughout the evening,
playing their guitars and singing
some patriotic songs as well as
other songs. A little bird told them
it was Karel Reiman’s birthday. I
believe that little bird was Sophie
Foley. And so they invited everyone
to sing the birthday song to Karel.
What a nice thing to do. That was
another nice thing that happened
at Midland Market. Singing with
them at times was Marinda, the
daughter of Mary Jo Jones and
Claude Flom. She does have a
beautiful singing voice. There were
around 50 plus people there that
evening enjoying themselves so
much they stayed beyond closing
time for Midland Market. I had a
nice visit with Kathleen Hand,
Kennewick, Wash. She had come
with her brothers, Dave and Laura
Hand and Tom and Lani Hand.
Midland Market is going the extra
mile this year working to make it
an enjoyable time for everyone.
Hoping to bring people back each
Friday evening, they have other
plans for entertainment at differ-
ent times. Watch for information in
their ads and come and show your
support. Each week they have a va-
riety of items to offer from baked
goods to canned goods to garden
produce to homemade jams to
homemade aprons to jewelry, to
name a few.
Many folks from near and far
have heard of the Stroppel Hotel of
Midland with its hot mineral
baths. Parts of the following are
about the hotel found in the Mid-
land history book. Dan Bastion had
built a road house in 1905 near the
west side of Mitchell Creek, south-
east of the present town of Mid-
land. That site was called East
Midland. The Bastion House had
33 rooms and Mrs. Bastion did the
work. In 1907, the building was
moved to the Midland townsite and
an addition built onto the back of
the building. Mrs. Bastion hired
cooks and waitresses. Different
folks leased that building in later
years and in 1931 it was bought by
J.W. DuBois. In 1937, the hotel
was closed. John Stroppel bought
the hotel in 1939, and with commu-
nity financial assistance, put down
an artisan well for hot baths. It
now became known as the Stroppel
Hotel and Hot Mineral Baths. John
and his wife, Violet, operated that
hotel for a number of years giving
hot baths, sweats and massages. In
1949, their son, Jack, who had at-
tended chiropractic school, took
over the business, assisting his
parents until 1966. He eventually
moved to Rapid City and his
brother, George Stroppel, helped
their mother run the hotel. John
passed away in 1959. George and
his wife, Alice, bought the business
in 1973 and continued to operate
the hotel giving hot baths and
treatments. Eventually, George
and Alice’s daughter, Patricia, and
husband Rueben ran the hotel
until the first of June of this year.
George and Alice moved into the
home of his parents’, which is just
east of the hotel.
And so, for the first time since
1939 there are no Stroppels operat-
ing that hotel. Kathy Jensen, a son-
in-law and a third partner will now
be operating the hotel. Del Bartels
had an article in last week’s Pio-
neer Review about Kathy and her
family’s adventure and business, so
I will not go into much of that. The
hot mineral baths was a real draw-
ing card for Kathy and her family.
They are interested in doing much
with those healing waters as well
as giving massages etc. We want to
welcome Kathy and her partners to
Midland and we wish them much
success as they are stepping out
into another adventure.
Jonas Frokjor-Jensen and his
wife, Ibn, and their three sons from
Denmark stopped at the Shorty
and Mickey Woitte home Friday for
a short visit. They stayed until
Sunday and then went on to Utah
to visit his brother who is living
there. Jonas was an exchange stu-
dent at the Woitte home for the
school year 1990-1991. They have
continued to keep in touch ever
Randy and Holly Nemec at-
tended a get-together at the home
of Don and Erin Bourk in Blunt a
while back to meet Holly's nephew,
Jorgen Vosberg's, new wife, Mo-
riah. Jorgen and Moriah were mar-
ried in October just before Jorgen
was deployed to Afghanistan. He is
stationed on the island of Oahu in
Hawaii and they are in South
Dakota to visit friends and family
for awhile before they return to the
base in Hawaii. Joining the group
were Chelsee, Addison and Joey
Rankin, Kelly Vosberg and Dena
Harmon, McKenzie Vosberg and

daughter of Larry Larson and Jean

1,400 mile round trip and that it
was very dry as they crossed the
state of Iowa. The corn is tall, but
it is stressed. Many states are dry

Come to the Open Bible Church
in Midland July 14 from 2:00-4:00
to wish Cal and Pat Saucerman a
happy 50th wedding anniversary. I
can remember Jerry and I going to
their wedding at Hayes those 50
years ago. It had rained pretty well
and not being paved it made for
muddy conditions, so Cal carried
Pat to the car and they were off on
their honeymoon.Congratulations,
Cal and Pat. Those years do fly by
when you are having fun, right?
Jerry and I attended the funeral
service for 100-year-old Jewel
(Bjelkstrom) Coverdale at Trinity
Lutheran Church in Midland this
Monday morning. In a previous
Midland News column, I had writ-
ten some of the history of the Bjelk-
stroms and the Coverdales. I got
out the “Prairie Progress of West
Central South Dakota” history
book once again, reading over some
of their family history. I never
cease to be amazed by those hearty
pioneers with all the hardships
they endured. I’m thinking we pale
in comparison. We sometimes
think we have it tough, but we hon-
estly have no idea what real tough
is. Jewel’s mom, Amanda Bjelk-
strom, wrote about a horse Jewel’s
dad, C.O. Bjelkstrom had. In
telling of that horse and what C.O.
had to say, Amanda wrote, “Horses
were indispensible.” “Many of us
could say with pride we owned one,
that no critter could get away
from.” In the history story C.O.
proved it when he and his horse
went after a gray wolf – the wolf
did not come out winner. Our sym-
pathies to the Coverdale families.
Allen and Traci Evans, Tiahnna
and Taylor Evans, Sioux Falls, ar-
rived at the parental Bob Evans
home Wednesday night. They left
Thursday for the Black Hills to at-
tend a Jensen family reunion.
Thursday, Bob and Verona Evans,
Stan and Cathy Evans, Janet
Evans, Allen and Traci Evans and
girls, and Matt and Trisha Walters,
Alexa and Myah, were guests of
Ross and Melanie Jones, Cassie
and Kalli, for supper in Rapid City.
This was an early birthday supper
for Verona.
Morris and Barbara Jones were
happy to have their daughters and
families come home to visit last
weekend. Jill and Todd Sheldon,
Mallory, Mya and Doug, came Fri-
day night from Bismarck, N.D.,
and Carrie and Wes Mentele, Cole,
Logan and Ava, came early Satur-
day morning from Howard. They
visited at the home of brother, Jeff,
Jen, Stetson, and Maysa Jones and
the afternoon at the home of
brother, Jon, Jennifer, Jada, Jewel,
Jet, Jess and Josie Jones. All gath-
ered back at mom and dad’s for a
potluck supper. The young cousins
enjoyed renewing friendships and
playing together. All returned
home Sunday.
I received the following from Jen
Jones: “As many of you know Stet-
son was diagnosed with unilateral
retinoblastoma in October 2010.
We were sent to Cincinnati for
inter-arterial chemotherapy treat-
ments every three weeks for four
months.Stetson went 14 months
with no signs of cancerous tumor
growths in his left eye and we were
taking him to check-up visits in
Rapid City. In April 2012 at Stet-
son’s check-up, two cancerous tu-
mors were found. We were sent to
Cincinnati again to start IV
chemotherapy and cryotherapy.
The cryotherapy caused a little
hole in the lining of Stetson's eye
and therefore caused his retina to
detach because of a pressure
change due to fluids leaking out.
With no hope for Stetson's retina to
reattach on its own and therefore
no vision in his left eye and a
cloudy substances of probable can-
cer cells resistant to chemo and ra-
diation just waiting to settle down
and start growing again, Jeff and I
decided to have Stetson's eye re-
moved. His eye will be sent to
pathology to see if there are outly-
ing tumors. If so, Stetson will have
to continue with chemotherapy.
Stetson will continue to have
checkups on his right eye for two
more years to make sure he doesn't
develop retinoblastoma in his good
eye. On August 6, Stetson has an
appointment with an ocularist in
Denver to have his prosthetic eye
made. God has blessed us with
such a great attitude from Stetson.
He does not seem to be bothered by
the fact of loosing an eye. We are so
thankful for all the support and
prayers we have received from fam-
ily and friends for the past two
years. We know we would not have
been able to make our decisions
without all the prayers from every-
one. Thanks again to everyone who
supported our fundraiser at the T-
ball and C-ball game and to Mod-
ern Woodmen in Philip for match-
ing funds. You all are truly a bless-
ing to have in our lives.” I wish to
thank Jen for writing about Stet-
son. I asked her if she could do this
as I knew people would be inter-
ested and I wanted the information
to be correct. I am amazed by Jen,
Jeff and Stetson on how they have
handled this whole process. God is
truly working in their lives. Their
faith is strong. Our prayers con-
tinue to be with Jeff, Jen and Stet-
An update from Alice (Donovan)
Venner’s daughter Micaela. “Mom
continues to amaze us with her im-
proved well-being, joyful outlook
and determination to enjoy the
family and special treats each day
brings to her. The Venner house-
hold again enjoyed lots of family
and friends. Kathy's husband,
Dave, and their daughter, Kyndi,
New York, spent several days vis-
iting and pitching in. Also stopping
by was son Pat, Yvonne, Karleen,
Gary, Roger, Tracey, Tyson, Natile
and Alice’s newest great great-
granddaughter, Tynlee. Many
other well wishers also stopped by
to chat. Each moment spent with
loved ones is such a gift for mom
and Larry. Kathy has returned to
Memphis and mom will enjoy
daughter, Kara’s, caregiving this
week and daughter, Mary’s, next
weekend.We are requesting that
between the hours of 12:00 to 3:00
p.m. there are no phone calls or vis-
itors. Mom and Larry need this
"nap time" to keep up their
strength and restore their energies.
Thanks to all for the beautiful mes-
sages, well wishes and words of en-
couragement. Your prayers are cer-
tainly being heard as we witness
mom’s growing physical, spiritual
and emotional strength. We are
blessed.” The Donovan/ Venner
family is also strong in their faith.
Our prayers continue to be with
their families.

The celebration at the Milesville
Hall on July Fourth drew a good
crowd, approximately 150 people.
As always, the food was plentiful,
the roast beef was delicious, and
everyone had a good time of visit-
ing, enjoying the air conditoning in-
side. Out in the yard, there were
some organized games for the kids,
including a boot scramble and mut-
ton busting. John Piroutek rode his
sheep and was declared the win-
ner. Phil Carley and Les Pearson
were the judges. The chute crew in-
cluded Jade Berry, Keith Smith,
Daniel Packard and Misti Berry.
Dusti Berry was the stock contrac-
Some of the news this week will
not be too recent because of the
early deadline last week.
Peggy Parsons attended the
state high school rodeo in Belle
Fourche a couple of weeks ago. Her
grandaughter, Bailey Lytle, was
June 27 and 28, Peggy Parsons
was in Piedmont babysitting her
grandaughter, EmmyLee Parsons,
daughter of Brennen and Joni.
The weekend of June 30 and July
1, guests at Byron and Peggy Par-
sons were grandkids, Bodhi and
Bailey Lytle, and Bodhi's friend,
Chelsea Shearer. They were com-
peting in a rodeo in Ft. Pierre.
Mark, Judith and Bailey Radway
were in Philip Saturday, June 30,
for a 50th birthday party for Mike
Brooks. Later, they attended the
reception and dance for Steven and
Beth Stewart. Tanner was at a
team roping event at the Robert
Tolton's that day and on Sunday
another big team roping in Rapid
Bailey Radway recently spent
time at South Dakota State Uni-
versity in Brookings for a basket-
ball camp. Her dad, Mark, took her
there and she rode home with the
Joe Carley family.
The weekend of June 30 and July
1, Bill and Connie Parsons and
some of their family got together at
a campground near Hill City.
Among them were Kyle and Marla
Petersen and family of Dazey,
N.D., Grant and Sandra Parsons
and Cole, Milesville, Glenn and
Dianne Parsons and Morgan and
Maddy Parsons and family, Philip,
and Shayla and Jeremy Delaney
and boys, Rapid City.
SaraLi Petersen, daughter of
Kyle and Marla (Parsons) Pe-
tersen, spent the first week of June
doing mission work in the country
of Nicaragua. Her cousin, Preston,
son of Brad and Wendy Parsons,
Visalia, Calif., is in Costa Rica at
this time on a two week missions
trip. Their grandparents are Bill
and Connie Parsons.
Jacob Hogue was without day-
care last week so Grandpa Dan and
Grandma Gayla Piroutek headed
to Muskegon, Mich., to visit their
daughter, Amy, and her family.
They took care of Jacob, but also
visited the Grand Rapids zoo, the
beach on Lake Michigan, and
played mini-golf. They took a few
pieces of furniture and fixed up a
new room for Jacob, as he will have
a baby brother in September. It is
a 1,060 mile drive through Chicago
(plus $14 in toll road fees) to get to
Muskegon. On the return trip, they
took the ferry across Lake Michi-
gan from Muskegon to Milwaukee.
It is 150 miles across the Lake, and
the ferry traveled 36 mph. It took
just short of three hours to cross
the lake, but it saved 260 miles of
driving (including through
Chicago), and all of the toll fees.
The ferry ride was not cheap. It
cost $80 per person, plus $87 for
the car, for a total of $247. It was a
relaxing ride, and the harbor views
on each side of the lake were very
interesting. It is 970 miles to drive
to St. Louis to visit their other
daughter, Erin.

Rachel Parsons and Jane Poss
from the Philip High School Ger-
man Club served spaghetti ice
Tuesday in Philip to the truckers
on combine crews who unloaded
wheat at the local elevator. For
those of you who don't know what
this is, spaghetti ice is vanilla ice

sauce looks like tomato sauce. Co-
conut or white chocolate shavings
create the parmesan cheese. Sell-
ing this German treat was a
fundraiser for the German Club.

Dick and Gene Hudson visited
with us Sunday evening. They had

hottest July day was 105˚ on the
25th. It reached in to the 90s for 10
days and in the 70s for four days.
Average low was 54˚. The low for
the month was 43˚ on the 12th.
There were 16 days that the low
got in to the 50s. July had one day
of fog – on the 8th.
The weather station received
.40” Thursday night which is a
help, but much rain is needed.
Most local farmers are through
combining their winter wheat and
the corn crop and pastures are
needing rain very badly.
Lana Elshere went to Belle
Fourche Friday to meet her
grandaughter, Grace Anderson,
who came home with her. Also
coming on Friday was grandaugh-

to $500 a month for 2013. This includes
the space on third floor for the City Police
Department and three rooms on fourth
floor. Two are office space and one is for
storage. There is also a bathroom on
fourth floor. The rent has been $60 a
month for many, many years. Discussion
on what the county provided them for the
$60 a month included such things as cus-
todial services, purchases of all bathroom
supplies, heating, air conditioning, elec-
tricity and water are all paid by the county,
any repairs or maintenance, snow re-
moval and yard maintenance is also the
county's responsibility. The commission is
aware that it is a substantial increase but
feel that the $500 a month was more in
line with "breaking even¨ due to the rev-
enue situation for the county. Mayor Vet-
ter requested the commission consider
charging $400 a month. That request will
be considered.
Auditor Freeman found that the May 1,
2012, Regular Minutes under Salaries
should be amended to read "April¨ in-
stead of May 2012. The motion was
made by Nicholas Konst and seconded
with all in agreement to amend the min-
utes. The June 7, 2012, Regular Minutes
and the Canvass Minutes were reviewed.
A motion made by Rita O'Connell to ap-
prove as written. The motion was sec-
onded with all in agreement. The June 19,
2012, Special Minutes involved working
on projected 2013 Revenues for 2013
budget. A motion was made by Stephen
Clements, seconded with all in agree-
ment to approve the minutes.
Commissioner Rita O'Connell gave her
report on the meeting on Friday, June 29,
2012, which she attended in Kadoka, SD,
concerning the driver's license testing.
She thought that it was very much under-
stood that the surrounding area wanted to
definitely keep the testing in Kadoka, SD.
Ìf that were lost, it would mean that Rapid
City, SD, or Pierre, SD, would be the next
closest testing area. Ìt also was a benefit
for the community as it drew people to
town to do other business. The concern
was the cost of the testing did not cover
the revenue spent in providing the serv-
The Gen Pro generator has had a flash-
ing light for a while, which means some-
thing needs attention. Auditor Freeman
called Roy Miller, who was going to serv-
ice the generator. She asked him to bring
in the maintenance book. He stated that
it was difficult to get filters, etc. for the ma-
chine. Auditor Freeman called Tim Hei-
land, a generator technician from DMÌ
Diesel Machinery, Ìnc. in Rapid City, SD,
who had previously worked for Gen Pro.
He stated he was able to come within the
week to service the generator. He found
several things wrong. The switch which
controlled the flashing red light was bro-
ken. Two leaks were found and the hoses
were replaced. He replaced all filters and
checked the battery. Ìt received a thor-
ough servicing and is back to good work-
ing order. DMÌ has a yearly maintenance
agreement for $482.26. Sheriff Fred
Koester and Deputy Sheriff Mike Koffler
agreed to be the caretakers of the gener-
ator. All the information is copied and kept
in the Sheriff's office as well as the Audi-
tor's office. A copy will also be sent to
Emergency Manager Lola Roseth.
Emergency Manager Lola Roseth gave
her quarterly report to the commission.
She was informed that Commissioners
Nicholas Konst and Stephen Clements
had gone to the EM101 For Commission-
ers Course up in Rapid City, SD, on the
evening of June 27, 2012, and stated it
had been very informative. Marlene Knut-
son, Director of the S.D. Enhancement
District reported that Haakon County's
Pre-Mitigation Plan had been completed
and the bill sent to the county in the
amount of $14,895.00. Emergency Man-
ager Roseth is also applying for reim-
bursement by completing a report. A
motion was made to approve payment to
the S.D. Enhancement for their technical
assistance and development of Haakon
County's Pre-Disaster Mitigation Plan.
Motion carried.
A copy of the Kone, Ìnc. Service agree-
ment dating back to October of 2002, was
shown to the commissioners. Ìt has a
contract period of (5) years. Either party
may terminate this agreement at the end
of any (5) year period by giving the other
party ninety (90) day notice prior to the
anniversary date of the Agreement. Ìt is
an ongoing contract unless we give ninety
days written notice. What is done during
these monthly checks is also listed in the
contract. The commission felt that it was
being serviced every month at approxi-
mately $280 a month. We could wait until
the budget was completed before any de-
cision on the larger modules would be
At the June 7th, 2012, Regular Meeting
the following Disaster Declaration was
WHEREAS, Haakon County,
South Dakota has experienced
severe damage from lack of
moisture in the winter and
spring of 2011-2012, resulting
in property loss, economic
hardship, and threats to public
health and safety;
WHEREAS, Haakon County
has committed all available re-
sources and taken all possible
actions within the jurisdictional
boundaries to combat and to
alleviate the disaster, local re-
sources are not adequate to
cope with the situation.
SOLVED by the Chairman and
the Haakon County Commis-
sion at a regular meeting held
on June 7, 2012, it is hereby
requested that the Governor
declare a disaster to exist in
the County of Haakon.
PASSED by the Haakon
County Commissioners this 7th
day of June, 2012.
Haakon County Commission
Edward Briggs, Chairman
Patricia G. Freeman, Auditor
A burn ban was discussed. Ìt was decided
not to implement one at this time. Ìt would
be discussed again at the next meeting
on July 17, 2012.
Commissioner Rita O'Connell had to
leave the meeting at 3:00 PM.
Director of Equalization Toni Rhodes re-
ported that she would not be a certified
assessor until late September of this year.
She also stated that she had talked to the
Department of Revenue and it was sug-
gested that she could travel to other
counties and get experience by working
with them. She had also received a call
and they wanted to purchase Haakon
County information on parcels. There are
different ways to charge them, for exam-
ple, so much per parcel or so much per
page. Ìt was estimated that between
$14,000 to $15,000 could be charged for
doing this. No decision was made at this
Sheriff Fred Koester gave his monthly re-
port to the commission. He reported that
an on-dash camera could be gotten by a
Homeland Security Grant for $3,200. The
county would pay for it but would be re-
imbursed by the grant. Everything was re-
ported to be going pretty good in the
Veteran's Officer Terry Deuter's monthly
report was reviewed.
Sheryl Hansen, Administrative Secretary
for the Extension Office, gave her quar-
terly report. She reported that the Memo-
randum of Understanding goes to
December 31, 2012. Ìt was thought that
all four counties should get together and
see how this has all worked out for them.
Having only one advisor for all four coun-
ties (Haakon, Jackson, Jones and Mel-
lette) has meant a lot of time spent
traveling. Most activities were being done
in the other three counties. Carrie Weller
has signed her contract for another year.
The commission feels that this should be
revisited before paying the State
$4,187.50 for the next year as very little
time was spent in Haakon County.
Weed Supervisor Virgil Smith would like
to have his Weed Grant of $4,125.00 put
into his budget for the 2012 year. A written
report has been turned into the commis-
sion on what has been going on in the
month of June. A motion was made, sec-
onded with all in agreement to transfer
the grant money into the weed budget.

The revenues that were projected for
2013 have been loaded and presented to
the commission. Due to the time restric-
tions at the regular meetings, it is very dif-
ficult to do much on budget work. The
date of Tuesday, July 17, 2012, was set
for the next Special Budget Meeting at

Jenny Terkildsen with the Haakon County
Young Women (HCYW) addressed the
Council with a request to improve the ten-
nis court area. This also includes request-
ing the City administer a Game, Fish and
Parks Land and Water Conservation
funds (LWCF) grant for these improve-
ments on their behalf.
Ìt was noted that the tennis courts were
initially installed with LWCF with the un-
derstanding that they would be utilized for
recreational purposes in perpetuity.
She reviewed their plans which include
two separate play areas; one will be a full-
size basketball court and the other one
will have an interchangeable net for vol-
leyball and tennis. A picture of their pro-
posed plans was provided to the Council
and is on file in the City Finance Office.
She then went on to review their flooring
plans for the court. She presented a sam-
ple of the material which is a rubberized
tile that has a fifteen (15) year warranty
and life expectancy of twenty-five to thirty
(25-30) years.
Council Member Larson elaborated about
the flooring, noting that in order for the tile
to be utilized, the existing concrete will
need to be leveled and the joints repaired.
They are still waiting on a contractor to
determine this expense.
Council Member Matt questioned if the
improvements will only be done if the
LWCF grant is received? Ms. Terkildsen
stated that they are also pursuing other
funding sources such as the Ted Turner
Foundation grant in addition to the LWCF.
She stated that if the grants are not avail-
able as a funding source, it will take them
longer to make the improvements which
may also include the project being done
in stages.
She then apprised the Council of their
fund raising plans since the majority of
grants require matching funds. These in-
clude three-on-three basketball tourna-
ments as well as hosting "Hot Summer
Nights¨ on Thursday nights throughout
the month of July. The "Hot Summer
Nights¨ plan consists of a farmers market
and music. She stressed that if they do
not raise sufficient money for the im-
provements nor are awarded any grant
dollars, their events are community fo-
Following discussion, motion was made
by Matt, seconded by Arthur to authorize
the HCYW to improve the tennis courts
as proposed. Motion carried.
Mayor Vetter then requested FO Van
Lint's position as to the City administering
the LWCF for HCYW.
FO Van Lint stated that the City had ad-
ministered the same grant for the
HCYW's Kiddie Park playground equip-
ment and has no reservations about help-
ing them again. She reminded everyone
that the grant is a 50/50 matching grant
and the deadline is Aug. 10, 2012. At the
time of application, solid estimates for
their planned improvements need to be
provided and they are not allowed to
make any purchases with regard to the
improvements until the grant awards are
made. She noted that any work com-
pleted prior to a grant offer being made
will disqualify that portion of the improve-
ment from any grant reimbursement.
Following discussion, motion was made
by Arthur, seconded by Gartner to author-
ize the City to administer the Game, Fish
and Parks, LWCF grant application on be-
half of HCYW's proposed tennis court im-
provements as presented. Motion carried
with all members voting aye.
Ms. Terkildsen then went on to request
use of the swimming pool bathrooms for
park patrons. She noted that they have
looked into building bathrooms at the Kid-
die Park as a means to alleviate interrup-
tions for those playing at the park that
have to leave when they need to use a
restroom. After further discussion with
their organization members, they thought
it would be more cost effective and se-
cure to use the pool bathrooms since they
are in close proximity.
Brittney Drury, also representing HCYW,
spoke on behalf of the bathroom request.
She noted that they are only looking for
access to the first two bathroom stalls and
sink in each bathroom.
Mr. Terkildsen then reviewed the option
for a gate to be installed in each bath-
room, blocking access to the shower area
and pool. She reviewed the cost esti-
mates that were obtained by the Finance
Office which range from $186.95 to
$355.00 each. She noted that the HCYW
currently has $552.85 in available funds
set aside that they would be willing to
contribute towards the gates.
Ìt was noted that the City has not bud-
geted for the bathroom gate expense.
Doreen Vetter, also speaking on behalf of
HCYW, questioned if it would be possible
to only install a gate in one of the bath-
rooms, making it a unisex bathroom for
one year to see if the bathrooms are
going to work. She mentioned that if it
doesn't work, a large investment would
be saved.
The hours of the bathrooms being open
for the park patrons were also discussed.
Ìt was mentioned 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
to mirror that of the City employee start
time and the pool's closing time. A con-
cern for the weekends was mentioned as
the City employees do not work and the
pool does not open until 1:00 p.m.
DFO Smith was questioned as to what
time the pool personnel arrive in the
mornings. She stated that it is usually
around 11:00 a.m. to get the cleaning
done prior to opening for the day.
Ms. Terkildsen questioned if it would be
possible to leave the bathrooms open all
weekend and if that would be a problem?
She suggested that other community's
have public restrooms and questioned
how they managed them.
Council Member Henrie stated that leav-
ing the bathrooms open all weekend
could open the City to vandalism similar
to what occurs at the Lake Waggoner
Brittney Drury also noted her concern for
vandalism as HCYW could be responsi-
Larson mentioned that she would be will-
ing to open and close the bathrooms if no
one else is available.
FO Van Lint expressed concern for giving
out a key to the bathrooms. She gave the
example of when the named individual re-
sponsible for opening and locking the
bathrooms is not available and then the
key is given to someone else or another
key is made. She stressed that the City
would no longer be able to control access
to the bathrooms. She noted that this
same situation occurred at the rubble site
years ago.
Council Member Gartner suggested key
code locks for the bathroom doors like
those on the Fire Hall building. Ìt is run off
batteries and no electrical installation is
required. He noted that they seem to
work well as access is controlled by a
code and can be changed as needed
without having to change the door locks.
The concern is that they cost approxi-
mately $300 to $400 each and the City
has not budgeted for this expense.
The HCYW members were then ques-
tioned what times of the year would they
want access to the bathrooms? They
were also advised that after the pool
closes in August, the school leases the
pool concession area and bathroom facil-
ities. PWD Reckling also noted that the
water meter is removed and the water
lines are winterized following the football
playoffs in October.
By general consensus of the HCYW
members present, they would like to have
access to the bathrooms seasonally. This
would be from the pool season through
the football season.
Following a lengthy discussion, motion
was made by Gartner, seconded by Hen-
rie to allow use of the pool bathrooms to
the park patrons during pool hours until a
schedule can be established. This along
with the purchase and installation of
gates will be coordinated between the
Health/Rec. Committee and HCYW. Mo-
tion carried.
Ms. Terkildsen stated that their first "Hot
Summer Nights¨ event will be held this
Thursday and inquired if it would be pos-
sible to use the bathrooms during that
Ìt was noted that the gates will not be in-
stalled by that time. The pool closes at
7:00 p.m. and the event is scheduled to
go until 9:00 p.m.
Larson asked PWD Reckling if a lock
could be installed on the outside of the
access doors to the pool by this Thurs-
day. PWD confirmed that they would see
to getting the access to the pool locked
and that he would be willing to go lock the
bathroom doors at 9:00 p.m. that evening.
Terry Holman, also representing HCYW,
questioned if the pool could stay open till
9:00 p.m. during "Hot Summer Nights"? Ìt
was noted that that request was not on
the agenda and recommended they visit
with the Health/Rec. Committee.
Rod Senn, Airport Engineer with Kadr-
mas, Lee and Jackson (KLJ), reviewed
the bids for the Medium Ìntensity Runway
Lighting (MÌRL) Design project. He noted
that the following bid was received.
Muth Electric, Ìnc. ÷ $300,319.52 in-
cluding the Base Bid (runway lighting)
Alternate A (beacon replacement)
He noted that the bid came in at 4½%
higher than the engineer's estimate of
$287,243.00. Since the bid is within 10%
of the engineer's estimate, he does not
foresee that the Federal Aviation Admin-
istration (FAA) will have any concerns
with approving the bid amount.
He then stated that the bid did contain
two irregularities; the required statement
of Evidence of Competency and Evi-
dence of Financial Responsibility. These
were not submitted, but in Mr. Senn's
opinion, it was only a mere oversight of
Muth Electric and that they can be ob-
The total estimated cost of the project, in-
cluding engineering fees is estimated at
$340,000. Mr. Senn noted that the federal
share would entail approximately
$306,000 (90%), state $27,200 (8%), and
City $6,800 (2%).
Mayor Vetter noted that since the City did
not proceed with this project in 2011, we
lost $92,000 in federal funding. This year,
the City could lose an additional $150,000
should we not proceed.
Following review, motion was made by
Gartner, seconded by Matt to tentatively
award the bid for the MÌRL project to Muth
Electric, Ìnc. in the amount of
$300,319.52 contingent upon all qualifi-
cations being met and authorize the
Mayor's signature on the FAA grant appli-
cations. Motion carried with all members
voting aye.
Mr. Senn reported that he anticipates no-
tification of the FAA's approval by the Au-
gust Council meeting. Ìf all goes as
planned, the project should commence
soon following their notification and the
airport is expected to be closed for ap-
proximately five to six weeks in order to
complete the project.
Council then reviewed project status up-
dates for the Land Acquisition and Envi-
ronmental Assessment (LA/EA) and the
Medium Ìntensity Runway Lighting
(MÌRL) Design projects.
Street Ìmprovement Projects:
Mayor Vetter advised the Council of a
spreadsheet that Council Member Matt
had compiled. Matt was determining
when the City could financially pursue the
Pine St. Phase ÌÌÌ/Wray Ave. project if the
Wood/Walden Ave. project is pursued as
planned. He noted that two of three Street
Cmt. members and one of the
Water/Sewer Cmt. members met and re-
viewed Matt's information. Ìn turn, they
have requested additional information
from the City's engineer, Harlan Quenzer
with SPN & Assoc., on ways to reduce the
Wood/Walden Ave. project costs?
Harlan Quenzer with SPN & Assoc. then
addressed the Council with the requested
information. He provided the following
project cost reduction options for the
Wood/Walden Ave. project.
1) Scale the project back to stop the im-
provements on Wood Ave. at the High St.
intersection. This would reduce the proj-
ect costs by approximately $809,000
which includes $336,000 for sanitary
sewer; $410,000 for storm sewer; and,
$63,000 in local costs such as the drain
tile. Ìt was noted that the street surfacing
is included in the sanitary sewer and
storm sewer portions.
2) Reduce the improvements on Walden
Ave. to end at the driveway of 303
Walden Ave., making a cul-de-sac. This
would reduce the project costs by approx-
imately $31,000 which includes $14,000
in street rehabilitation; $11,000 in sanitary
sewer; and, $6,000 in water improve-
ments. Ìt was noted that the storm sewer
would remain as planned as that is vital
for the drainage.
3) Reduce the width of Wood Ave. from
High St. south to Pine St. This would pro-
vide a uniform street width of thirty-seven
feet (37') on Wood Ave. from Pine St.
north to SD Hwy 14. This would save ap-
proximately $21,000, but the concern is
about the reduction in parking along
Wood Ave.
4) Reduce the asphalt mat from six
inches (6¨) to four inches (4¨). Ìt was
noted that the concern for this reduction
is that of truck traffic, more specifically
garbage trucks. According to Mr. Quen-
zer, he does not foresee the reduction in
asphalt making a major impact on the life
expectancy of the street. He did recom-
mend that if this option is approved, the
felt blanket that is in the current specifica-
tions for the asphalt underlay be replaced
with a woven nylon blanket. The woven
nylon is more durable and will provide ad-
ditional strength. The cost difference for
this is approximately $0.40 to $0.50 per
square foot. The savings after consider-
ing the upgraded blanket would be ap-
proximately $60,000.
5) Require the property owners to pay for
their own concrete curb, gutter, and drive-
way approaches. This would be done
through a special assessment and would
save approximately $156,000. (For the
record, the project does not include side-
walk improvements so those are not in-
cluded nor discussed.)
Mayor Vetter elaborated on the special
assessment option, noting that during
past street improvement projects, prop-
erty owners were responsible for pay-
ment of curb, gutter, sidewalk, and
driveway approaches for their respective
properties. He stated that in his opinion,
it would only be fair to continue with what
has been done in the past.
FO Van Lint advised the Council of the
City's policy for special assessments.
This states that the City will make the in-
frastructure and street improvements if
the property owners pay for the curb, gut-
ter, sidewalk, and driveway approaches
on their respective properties. She noted
that in instances where the City has re-
ceived grant dollars for improvement proj-
ects, the savings has been passed onto
the property owners. For instance, Com-
munity Development Block Grant funds
provide 60% of the project costs and in
turn, the property owners were only re-
sponsible for the remaining 40% of the
curb, gutter, sidewalk, and driveway ap-
proach expenses.
She also noted that Cities have the option
to special assess properties for other im-
provements. For example, storm sewer,
street surfacing, water lines, sewer lines,
maintenance, etc. She stressed that the
City of Philip has only ever special as-
sessed for those improvements that add
value to a property ÷ curb, gutter, side-
walks, and driveway approaches. Ìn ad-
dition, those properties on a corner lot are
not responsible for the corner radius; this
is the City's responsibility.
Council Member Arthur stressed that the
Wood/Walden Ave. property owners were
previously advised that the City would not
be special assessing their properties for
curb, gutter, and driveway approaches.
Furthermore, the voters should have
been apprised of this prior to the bond
election as this, in his opinion, will be
viewed as a tax by those property own-
ers. He noted that the City told the people
that their taxes would not increase.
Council Member Matt questioned about
the precedence that would be set if we
don't special assess the Wood/Walden
Ave. properties. Would we be able to spe-
cial assess in the future?
Ìt was noted that the property owners do
have the option to voice their concerns re-
garding the special assessments and this
is done through a public hearing on a res-
olution of necessity.
Mayor Vetter stressed that the City needs
to move forward as the project is de-
signed and the funding is available.
Arthur then stated that he would prefer
that the entire Wood/Walden Ave. project
be completed with implementing options
#2 and #4 as stated above. This would
save a total of approximately $91,000.
Council Member Henrie questioned the
reasoning behind reducing the
Wood/Walden Ave. project costs? Mayor
Vetter advised that it would assist with
pursuing the Pine St. Phase ÌÌÌ/Wray Ave.
project sooner than later.
Matt then mentioned the Pine St. Phase
ÌÌÌ/Wray Ave. project, suggesting a two
inch (2¨) overlay be installed as a tempo-
rary fix until the City is able to move for-
ward with a complete rehabilitation of that
Mr. Quenzer advised that the estimated
cost for the 2¨ overlay is $140,000. He
noted that this does not include repairing
the soft spots or crack sealing of the as-
phalt. Ìn addition, he would recommend
that the intersection of Wray Ave. and
Hone St. be concreted as the overlay will
not hold up to the truck traffic. The con-
crete portion is estimated at $25,000 to
$40,000. He then stressed that if the City
does not pursue these repairs, the life ex-
pectancy will drop in half to five years.
With the repairs and if chip sealing is
done on annual basis, the street could
last over ten years.
Council Member Larson questioned the
initial start date for the Pine St. Phase
ÌÌÌ/Wray Ave. project? Ìt was noted that
the City has not made any promises to
the exact start date. The anticipated date
was five to seven years, following the
pay-off of the second SRF loan.
Council Member Gartner noted that grant
funds may be available for the Pine St.
Phase ÌÌÌ/Wray Ave. project. This would
allow the City to start sooner, but as with
all funding packages, nothing is guaran-
Matt then recommended the Council pro-
ceed with completing the Wood/Walden
Ave. project considering the options #2
and #4 above with the anticipation to
overlay Pine St. Phase ÌÌÌ and Wray Ave.
Following a rather lengthy discussion,
motion was made by Gartner, seconded
by Larson to proceed with the Wood/
Walden Ave. project with implementing
option #2 and #4 as outlined above. Mo-
tion carried with all members voting aye.
Special assessing the curb, gutter, and
driveway approaches in the project area
was further discussed.
FO Van Lint advised that the costs are as-
sessed per a lineal foot. The property
owners are given a two-percent (2%) dis-
count if paid prior to the costs being as-
sessed to the property tax bill. Ìf the costs
are assessed to the property taxes, they
are assessed for a period of ten (10)
years at the interest rate of prime plus
two-percent (2%).
She then stressed that if the Council pur-
sues special assessments, the City will
still be responsible for paying all of the
costs up front at the time of construction.
Motion was then made by Gartner, sec-
onded by Matt to special assess the con-
crete curb, gutter, and driveway approach
improvements to the Wood/Walden Ave.
properties. Motion carried 4 to 3 with
Mayor Vetter breaking the tie vote. Voting
aye: Larson, Matt, Gartner, and Vetter.
Voting nay: Harry, Arthur, Henrie.
Council then discussed how much they
would require the property owner's be re-
sponsible for in regard to the curb, gutter,
and driveway approach expenses. Ìt was
noted that the only recent improvement
project where the property owners paid
100% of the costs was the Ash St. proj-
ect. This was due to the fact that the prop-
erty owner's petitioned the City of Philip
to have their street paved and in turn,
agreed to pay for the curb, gutter, and
driveway approaches.
Mayor Vetter recommended the Council
be fair in the sense that the majority of
property owners have only been liable for
40% of the costs.
FO Van Lint also recommended that the
policy set today also apply to the Pine St.
Phase ÌÌÌ/Wray Ave. property owners.
Following discussion, motion was made
by Larson, seconded by Henrie to special
assess 40% of the curb, gutter, and drive-
way approach costs back to the property
owners. This was stressed as providing
consistency and fairness amongst prop-
erty owners that receive street improve-
ments. Motion carried 4 to 2. Voting aye:
Larson, Henrie, Gartner, Matt. Voting nay:
Arthur and Harry.
Motion was then made by Harry, sec-
onded by Arthur to approve the following
Resolution #2012-10. Motion carried with
all members voting aye.

ministrative Surcharge on
the Bonds shall be de-
posited and used solely for
the purpose of paying the

dance with law.

Taxing Powers. The City
covenants and agrees with
the holders of said General

taxes in said City are levied
and collected, ad valorem
taxes upon all taxable prop-
erty within the City sufficient
to pay interest on and the
principal of said General
Obligation Bond as they re-
spectively become due and
mature, and also an amount
sufficient to pay the interest
on Administrative Sur-
charges and the principal of
all other General Obligation
Bonds of the City heretofore
or hereafter issued as the
same shall become due and
mature. The City does
hereby levy, collectable in
the ensuing years, assum-
ing a 10% delinquency rate
on collection of taxes levied
to pay amounts due hereun-
der, to pay (unless and to
the extent the City furnishes
funds from any other
source), when due, princi-
pal, interest, and adminis-
trative surcharge due on the
General Obligation Bond.
The proceeds of said levies
are hereby appropriated to
and shall be held in the debt
service fund and used for no
purpose other than for pay-
ment of principal of and in-
terest on said General

that, if any payment of inter-
est or principal falls due
when moneys in said sink-
ing fund are insufficient, the
City shall request and the

tional levies sufficient for
payment of principal and in-
terest when due or the

vided by South Dakota Law.
9. Additional Bonds. The City

additional bonds secured by
taxes subject to the limita-
tions of law and the consti-
10. Tax Matters.
a. General Covenant. The City
covenants and agrees with
the registered owners from
time to time of the General
Obligation Bond that it will
not take or permit to be
taken by any of its officers,
employees or agents any
action which would cause
the interest on the General
Obligation Bond to become
includable in gross income
for federal income tax pur-
poses under the Code and
applicable Treasury Regula-
tions (the "Regulations"),
and covenants to take any
and all actions within its
powers to ensure that the
basic interest on the Gen-
eral Obligation Bond will not
become includable in gross
income for federal income
tax purposes under the
Code and the Regulations.
b. Certification. The Mayor and
the Finance Officer, being
the officers of the City
charged with the responsi-
bility for issuing the General
Obligation Bond pursuant to
this Resolution, are hereby
authorized and directed to
execute and deliver to the
District a certificate in accor-
dance with the provisions of
Section 148 of the Code,
and Section 1.148-2(b) of
the Regulations, stating that
on the basis of facts, esti-
mates and circumstances in
existence on the date of
issue and delivery of the
General Obligation Bond, it
is reasonably expected that
the proceeds of the General
Obligation Bond will be
used in a manner that would
not cause the General Obli-
gation Bond to be "arbitrage
bonds" within the meaning
of Section 148 of the Code
and the Regulations.
c. Ìnformation Reporting. The
City shall file with the Secre-
tary of the Treasury a state-
ment concerning the
General Obligation Bond
containing the information
required by Section 149(e)
of the Code.
d. Qualified Tax-Exempt Obli-
gations. Pursuant to Section
265(b)(3)(B)(ii) of the Code,
the City hereby designates
the General Obligation
Bond as "qualified tax-ex-
empt obligations" for pur-
poses of Section 265(b)(3)
of the Code. The City
hereby represents that it
does not anticipate that ob-
ligations bearing interest not
includable in gross income
for purposes of federal in-
come taxation under Sec-
tion 103 of the Code
(including refunding obliga-
tions as provided in Section
265 (b) (3) of the Code and
including "qualified 501 (c)
(3) bonds" but excluding
other "private activity
bonds," as defined in Sec-
tions 141(a) and 145(a) of
the Code) will be issued by
or on behalf of the City and
all "subordinate entities" of
the City in 2012 in an
amount greater than
11. General Covenants.
a. The City hereby covenants
and agrees with the District
and other owners of the
General Obligation Bond
that it will punctually perform
all duties with reference to
the Project, the System and
the General Obligation
Bond required by the consti-
tution and laws of the State

b. The City agrees and
covenants that it will
promptly construct the im-
provements included in the
c. The City covenants and
agrees with the District and
other owners of the General
Obligation Bond that it will
maintain the System in
good condition and operate
the same in an efficient
manner and at a reasonable
cost, so long as any portion
of the General Obligation
Bond remains outstanding;
that it will maintain insur-
ance on the System for the
benefit of the holders of the
General Obligation Bond in
an amount which usually
would be carried by private
companies in a similar type
of business; that it will pre-
pare, keep and file records,
statements and accounts as
provided for in this Resolu-
tion and the Loan Agree-
d. The Finance Officer shall
cause all moneys pertaining
to the Funds and Accounts
to be deposited as received
with one or more banks
which are duly qualified
public depositories under
the provisions of SDCL Ch.
4-6A, in a deposit account
or accounts, which shall be
maintained separate and
apart from all other ac-
counts of the City, so long
as any of the Bonds and the
interest thereon shall re-
main unpaid. Any of such
moneys not necessary for
immediate use may be de-
posited with such deposi-
tory banks in savings or
time deposits. No money
shall at any time be with-
drawn from such deposit ac-
counts except for the
purposes of the Funds and
Accounts as authorized in
this Resolution; except that
moneys from time to time
on hand in the Funds and
Accounts may at any time,
in the discretion of the City's
governing body, be invested
in securities permitted by
the provisions of SDCL 4-5-
6; provided, however, that
the Depreciation Fund may
be invested in such securi-
ties maturing not later than
ten years from the date of
the investment. Ìncome re-
ceived from the deposit or
investment of moneys shall
be credited to the Fund or
Account from whose mon-
eys the deposit was made
or the investment was pur-
chased, and handled and
accounted for in the same
manner as other moneys
13. Severability. Ìf any section,
paragraph, clause or provi-
sion of this Resolution, the
Loan Agreement, the Gen-
eral Obligation Bond, or any
other Loan Document shall
be held invalid, the invalidity
of such section, paragraph,
clause or provision shall not
affect any of the other provi-
sions of this Resolution or
said Loan Agreement, Gen-
eral Obligation Bond, or any
other Loan Document.
14. Authorization of City Offi-
cials. The Mayor, Finance
Officer, City Attorney and
City officials shall be and
they are hereby authorized
to execute and deliver for
and on behalf of the City
any and all other certifi-
cates, documents or other
papers and to perform such
other acts as they may
deem necessary or appro-
priate in order to implement
and carry out the actions
authorized herein.

not defined herein shall
have the meanings as-
signed to them in the Loan
Agreement unless the con-

Adopted at Philip, South
Dakota, this 2nd day of July

City Finance Officer
City of Philip ÷Storm Drainage
(Published: July 12, 2012)
Mr. Quenzer then went on to review a
proposal for cleaning and televising the
clay sewer mains within the City, refer-
encing the City's facility plan. He stressed
that the City does not need to do all of the
sewer mains at one time and therefore
recommends that at a minimum those
mains that will be affected by the
Wood/Walden Ave. project and Pine St.
Phase ÌÌÌ/Wray Ave. project be cleaned
and televised.
He then went on to review a quote from
A-Tech Sewer Cleaning in the amount of
$9,338.75. This includes cleaning and tel-
evising the following: 3,750 feet of 8¨
sewer main; 635 feet of 10¨ sewer main;
220' of 15¨ sewer main, and mobilization
He then recommended the Council ap-
prove this quote as the estimate was
Ìt was noted that the City had appropri-
ated $9,500 for contract services in 2012
which will cover this expense. Ìn addition,
this service is exempt from bidding since
it is below the bid limit.
Following review, motion was made by
Arthur, seconded by Matt to accept A-
Tech Sewer Cleaning's quote as pre-
sented. Motion carried.
Mr. Quenzer then recommended a copy
of the video and report be forwarded to
his office.
Motion was made by Harry, seconded by
Gartner to approve the Joint Cooperative
Agreement with Central SD Enhance-
ment (CSDED) for fiscal year 2013. Mo-
tion carried.
Council then went on to review the follow-
ing building permits as presented: Twila
Hook ÷ replace well pit; Karen Kroetch ÷
remove fence, flower beds, pond, &
ramps; replace privacy fence; Karen
Kroetch ÷ remove cement slabs; Dale &
Tami Morrison ÷ demolish structure; Dale
& Tami Morrison- new structure, water &
sewer line upgrades, move shed from
409 N. Larimer to 408 N. Larimer Ave.;
and, Kay Williams ÷ repair foundation, re-
place concrete pad & deck.
Discussion regarding Morrison's permits
for demolition and new construction en-
sued. Ìt was noted that the demolition per-
mit indicates that the City will be hauling
the debris to the City's Restricted Site in
which Mr. Morrison advised the Finance
Office that he was quoted a price of $0.75
per square foot. This quote, we were ad-
vised, was received from Council Mem-
ber Gartner.
Council Member Gartner noted that he
had quoted the price to Mr. Morrison and
also visited with PWD Reckling regarding
the hauling of the debris. He noted that
the quoted price is what was charged to
the other structures hauled and deposited
at the site this past spring by the City.
Ìt was noted that the policy for hauling
and accepting demolition debris was es-
tablished for condemned structures. Un-
fortunately, one of three properties that
were cleared this year was not a con-
demned structure and they were only
charged the $0.75/square foot.
Mayor Vetter questioned if PWD Reckling
was contacted by Mr. Morrison with this
request for the City to haul and dispose
of the debris at the site? PWD confirmed
that he has not been contacted. Mayor
Vetter stressed that all of those requests
should go directly through Mr. Reckling.
Ìt was then noted that Mr. Morrison's new
construction plans are being planned
based on installing an approach on the
north-side of his property, allowing traffic
to exit out onto SD Hwy 14. Accordingly,
he has filed a permit with the SD Dept. of
Transportation for the approach and
should it not be approved, there is a po-
tential for traffic issues. This is due to how
and where the proposed new structure on
the property will be located.
Following review, motion was made by
Matt, seconded by Henrie to approve the
above building permits as presented with
the exception of Dale and Tami Morri-
son's new constructions permit. Motion
Motion was then made by Matt, seconded
by Arthur, to approve Dale and Tami Mor-
rison's new construction permit contin-
gent upon the SD DOT's approval of the
approach on the north-side of their prop-
erty. Motion carried.
PWD Reckling addressed the Council re-
garding the tree located on the east end
of Fire Hall Park that has lost two of its
large tree limbs in the wind. He would like
to remove it before more damage occurs,
but would like the Council's approval.
West Central Electric is willing to take it
Council Member Matt expressed concern
at NOT removing the tree, stressing that
it is very dangerous and needs to be re-
Motion was then made by Gartner, sec-
onded by Arthur to approve the removal
of the tree on the east-end of Fire Hall
Park due to its dangerous condition. Mo-
tion carried.
Council was advised of the County Com-
missioner's plan to increase the City's
rent at the Courthouse from $60 per
month to $500 per month, effective Jan.
1, 2013. Ìt was noted that the current rent
of $60 per month for the City office and
Police Dept. office has been the same for
many years.
Mayor Vetter questioned if we have a
lease agreement with the County? FO
Van Lint advised that she is not aware of
a lease agreement.
The concern is that this is a 733% in-
crease. Mayor Vetter will meet with the
County Commission tomorrow to deter-
mine if they would consider a step in-
crease instead of the large increase they
are proposing.
Motion was then made by Matt, seconded
by Gartner to table any action on the rent
increase until Mayor Vetter reports on the
discussion with the County Commission.
Motion carried.
Departmental Reports:
The quarterly Administrative report was
Council reviewed the year-to-date budg-
ets through June 2012, the City's Ìnvest-
ment report which includes the City's
Certificates of Deposit as well as the
year-to-date sales tax revenues reported
at $221,096.33. The sales tax revenues
have increased over 22% from June
Mayor Vetter extended his thanks to the
community for shopping locally and the
businesses for being available.
The 2013 budget meetings are scheduled
for July 25th-27th, 2012.
The quarterly Airport report was re-
viewed, which included the YTD fuel rev-
enues of $4,863.36.
Council reviewed a request from John
Hughes to purchase the City's old M1000
fueling card system reader. Ìt was noted
that this system is no longer in service as
the fueling system was upgraded in 2010.
This equipment was included in the initial
fuel system that was installed in 2000.
According to Rob with Petro-Tech, the
City's fuel system manager, this piece of
equipment is valued at $300 which is
below the bid limit.
Following review, motion was made by
Arthur, seconded by Gartner to approve
surplusing and selling the M1000 fueling
card system at the appraised value of
$300. Motion carried with all members
voting aye.
The monthly Police Dept. report was pre-
sented and reviewed with Chief Graham.
The monthly Street Dept. report was re-
The monthly Water Dept. report was re-
The Swimming Pool report was reviewed.
The month of June had 2,993 pool atten-
dees compared to 2,114 in June 2011. Ìt
was also noted that June 2012 had more
attendance than 2009's entire pool sea-
Council was informed that Erin Fitzgerald,
Water Safety Ìnstructor (WSÌ), has ex-
pressed interest in teaching swimming
lessons during the second session, July
9th-13th, 2012. This would allow her to
maintain her certification and in turn,
would be volunteering her time in ex-
change for reimbursement of her remain-
ing half of certification costs in the amount
of $80.00.
Ìt was noted that the City has established
a policy to reimburse WSÌ certification
costs over a two-year period, half the first
year and the remaining half the second
year, should they teach swimming les-
Motion was made by Arthur, seconded by
Gartner to approve Erin Fitzgerald as a
volunteer WSÌ for the second session of
swimming lessons and reimburse her for
the remaining half of her WSÌ certification
costs of $80.00 following her volun-
teerism. Motion carried.
Mayor Vetter reminded the Council that
during the previous meeting, two railing
quotes for the handicap ramp and side-
walk at the pool were reviewed. Due to
this expenditure not being appropriated in
2012, the Council declined pursuing it this
year. Since the last meeting, a fall over
the sidewalk curb at the swimming pool
occurred. A railing for the handicap ramp
was donated by Curt Arthur and installed
by Street/Sewer personnel, Jason Pe-
PWD Reckling reported that Mr. Hauk
has confirmed that his FFA class will build
the railing for the west side of the side-
walk, abutting the track. He also noted
that the sidewalk curb will be painted yel-
low to alert people of the curb drop off.
Following review, Mayor and Council
thanked Greg Arthur for locating the rail-
ing, Curt Arthur for donating the railing,
and Jason Petersen for painting and in-
stalling the railing.
Council then read two thank you letters
that were received regarding the swim-
ming pool and staff. One was from the
Rural Experience for Health Professional
Students and the other one from Lori
Council reviewed the following L/P
Propane bids received this month:
June 6, 2012
Fitzgerald Oil Company .........$1.25/gal.
Midwest Cooperatives ............$1.35/gal.
June 13, 2012
Fitzgerald Oil Company..........$1.25/gal.
Midwest Cooperatives ............$1.35/gal.
At 8:50 p.m., motion was made by Arthur,
seconded by Harry to enter into executive
session per SDCL 1-25-2(1), personnel.
At 9:02 p.m. Council came out of execu-
tive session with the following action.
Motion was made by Matt, seconded by
Henrie to accept with regret, Rose Ben-
nett's resignation as Pool Manager effec-
tive July 15, 2012. Motion carried.
Mayor, Council, and those in attendance
thanked Mrs. Bennett for her commitment
to the swimming pool and its patrons over
the last five years.
Motion was then made by Henrie, sec-
onded by Gartner to advertise for a swim-
ming pool manager for the remainder of
the 2012 pool season. Motion carried.
Motion was then made by Arthur, sec-
onded by Gartner to authorize the
Health/Rec. Committee to hire a new
manager and establish the wage. Motion
Motion was then made by Gartner to ap-
point DFO Smith as the supervisor to the
Pool Manager and lifeguards. He noted
his concern that the Health/Rec. Commit-
tee may not be readily available if some-
thing should arise with the pool.
Ìt was noted that the City Office is already
the first point of contact for the pool staff
as well as patrons. The additional duties
are split in the office between FO Van Lint
and DFO Smith with the mechanical du-
ties being that of the water and street de-
Following discussion, Gartner withdrew
his motion to appoint Smith as the super-
visor for the Pool Manager and lifeguards.

The Philip baseball B team played Kadoka, Tuesday, July 3. It was a 7-7 draw because of time limitations. Back row, from
left: coach Brad Heltzel, Parker Snyder, Jet Jones, Kearby Jindra, Reece Heltzel, Keldon Fitzgerald, Casey Schriever and
coach J.R. Snyder. Front: Ethan Burnett, Clark Hindman Hopkins, Sawyer Smith, McCoy Peterson and and Tyson Seager.
Philip Post 173 continued its third year of play this past weekend at the annual Wood Bat tournament hosted by Lead/Dead-
wood Post 31. Philip finished with a 2-2 record and third place in the teener division. Philip Post 173's current record stands
at 5-7 after playing teams from Newcastle, Wyo., Belle Fourche, Rapid City, Sturgis, Pierre and Lead/Deadwood. “We con-
tinue to learn and improve each year,” said coach Travis DeJong. “Our players come from north of Highway 34 to south of
Highway 44. That's close to 110 miles apart, which can present quite a challenge for practices. The guys keep fighting hard
in the games and we’re having a great time playing baseball.” Handling the pitching duties for the team this year have been
Blaine Hicks, Tate DeJong, Avery Johnson, Zach Stone and Bubba Young. Currently the top five hitters are Hicks (.558 av-
erage), Cody Young (.424 average), Tate DeJong (.424 average), Johnson (.412 average) and Young (.400 average). This
Sunday, July 15, the Philip team will host a triangular in Philip with Lead/Deadwood and Winner. The first game will start
at 11:00 a.m., where Philip will take on Lead/Deadwood. The second game is scheduled for 2:00 p.m. with Lead going
against Winner. The last game will be Philip versus Winner at 5:00 p.m. The team invites everyone from the area to come
fill the seats and line the fences for an entertaining day of baseball. Back row, from left: coach Kory Foss, Clint Stout,
Cassidy Schnabel, Zach Stone, Tate DeJong, Avery Johnson, Cody Young and Travis DeJong. Middle row: Bubba Young, Jed

The second annual “Winter
Fever” Wall Badlands Chamber of
Commerce Golf Tournament was
Saturday, June 30, on the Wall
Golf Course.
The nine-hole tournament used a
shotgun start. It was a three-per-
son scramble, with one red tee hit-
ter. The event included pin prizes
and door prizes.
“Thanks to the many golfers who
came out and all of our wonderful
sponsors and businesses that do-
nated prizes; the tournament was
a lot of fun and very successful! The
proceeds from this tournament are
used for special events and projects
throughout the year, for example
the new banners on Main Street
were purchased in part by last
year’s tournament funds, and the
new chamber sign from this year’s
proceeds,” stated Lindsey Hilde-
brand, director of the Wall Cham-
ber of Commerce.

The Junior Golf Tournament
was held Sunday, July 1, at the
Lake Waggoner Golf Course.
The tournament was for the
third through sixth graders who
golfed Tuesdays and Wednesdays
in the kids golf clinic that began
June 5. The tournament followed a
month of clinics for grades kinder-
garten through sixth. The older
kids attended each Tuesday and
Wednesday in June, and the
younger kids attended Wednesdays
only. Participants worked on all
facets of the game, including chip-
ping, putting, driving, irons, rules
and golf etiquette.
Thirty kids attended the clinic,
which was headed up by Dak Car-
ley and assisted by Tristen Rush.
Many others assisted throughout
the month. The clinic is anticipated
to continue every year, so the kids
will develop a love for the game.
The tournament had 14 partici-
pants. They played three holes,
with a meal and awards ceremony
following. Using a shotgun start,
the contestants were in three dif-
ferent groups but played individu-
ally. All are from Philip.

Junior Golf Tourney concludes clinic
It’s an experience they’ll never
forget. Nearly 100 campers and
staff gathered in the beautiful
Black Hills of South Dakota, June
3-8, for the annual Farmers Union
State Leadership Camp.
Campers came from every corner
of South Dakota to get ‘Wild About
Cooperation!’ The theme of this
year's camp focused on the cooper-
ative spirit of working together to
accomplish goals. The campers ex-
perienced a Black Hills tour day,
lessons on first aid and CPR, coop-
erative games, workshops, speak-
ers, and, of course, a lot of fun.
“We had an incredible week at
camp,” said Farmers Union Educa-
tion Director Bonnie Geyer. “The
kids learned how to lead their
peers, work together to accomplish
common goals while having a lot of
fun making lifelong friendships.”
Campers set up their own coop-
erative businesses during camp.
The camp store, where they buy
snacks, pop and other items, is set
up as a cooperative with campers
buying shares and doing business
at the store. There is a mutual in-
surance company, co-op newspa-
per, co-op coffee shop and a credit
union. At the start of camp, youth
put real money into the credit
union and use those funds to shop
at the coffee shop and the store.
“We set up real life scenarios
that these kids will remember as
they step into the real world,”
Geyer said. “They have their own
checkbook, have to balance it them-
selves, and even pay fees if they
bounce a check. We’re trying to get
them ready for their lives and
teach them what it takes to be a
member of a cooperative and a
member of society.”
The kids also participate in bon-
fires, sing songs and play games
throughout the week. The camp is
coordinated by the Education
Council and led by the Junior Ad-
visory Council, a group of six teens
who were chosen during last year’s
camp to lead the 2012 week. The
new Junior Advisory Council mem-
bers were elected during camp.
“It’s a chance for these young
people who are chosen to lead and
to learn what it takes to step up
and be a leader,” Geyer said. “The
other kids really look up to them.
They’re role models, and they take
their roles very seriously. It’s a
chance to learn some valuable lead-
ership skills they’ll take with them
throughout their lives.”
The week also included many
speakers on a wide range of leader-
ship and development topics. Lisa
Snedeker, training coordinator at
Dakotaland Federal Credit Union,
discussed financial literacy with
the youth. Leadership trainer Mal-
com Chapman spoke to the kids
about being a better leader and
serving your community. National
Guard soldiers taught the kids
about safety and serving your
country. And, the youth also partic-
ipated in CPR training and other
educational experiences.

Emergency rules allowing the
sale of 85 octane gasoline with
mandatory cautionary labels are in
effect as of Monday, July 9. A pub-
lic hearing is scheduled July 20 on
permanent rules governing the sale
of that product
At the direction of Governor Den-
nis Daugaard, the State Depart-
ment of Public Safety implemented
the emergency rules after a review
of state laws by the Office of
Weights and Measures within DPS
concluded that the sale of 85 octane
gasoline is illegal in South Dakota.
Because of concerns raised by pe-
troleum marketers about possible
fuel shortages, the emergency rules
were written to allow sale of 85 oc-
tane temporarily while the public
has an opportunity to comment on
permanent rules that clarify the
status of 85 octane in the state.
Several Rocky Mountain states
allow the sale of 85 octane fuel, and
it has been a commonly sold prod-
uct in western South Dakota for
many years.
Until permanent rules have been
set, those who sell 85 octane must
post a cautionary label that reads:
“Sub-regular octane. Refer to
owner’s manual before fueling.’’ Ve-
hicle manufacturers’ groups do not
support the sale of 85 octane gaso-
line. Most engines are designed to
run on a minimum of 87 octane.
A public hearing on permanent
rules will be July 20 at 10:00 a.m.
in the Capital Lake Visitor’s Cen-
ter in Pierre. Anyone may attend
and offer comments. Written com-
ments are also being accepted
through July 30, and should be
mailed to Office of Weights &
Measures, 118 W. Capitol Ave.,
Pierre, S.D., 57501. Emailed com-
ments should go to DPSWM@state
.sd.us. The emergency and pro-
posed permanent rules, and rules
hearings may be found at the De-
partment of Public Safety website
The 85 octane issue is unrelated
to E-85, a reference to a motor fuel
that contains a blend of gasoline
and up to 85 percent ethanol.
