Gardeners may be noticing the
effects of our recent high tempera-
tures, according to Dr. Rhoda Bur-
rows, Extension Horticulturist.
"Hot dry winds can also exacer-
bate the combined effect of heat
stress and water stress, as it can be
difficult to deliver sufficient water
to the plant under those condi-
tions," Dr. Burrows said.
The following are some of the ef-
fects Burrows said gardeners may
observe on vegetables:
Tomatoes: Ideal temperatures
for growing tomatoes are 75 to 80
degrees. Temperatures over 100 de-
grees F can prevent fruit set, and
temperatures in the 90's can also
prevent fruit set if nights are warm
(over 70 degrees) or the humidity is
high. On ripening fruit exposed to
strong sun, sunburn can occur, and
temperatures over 85 degrees de-
crease development of red color in
the fruit. Heat also tends to in-
crease blossom end rot because the
fruit expands too rapidly for the
plant to take up calcium quickly
enough to distribute it to the ex-
panding fruit. Uneven watering
will also result in the same prob-
lem, as the plant needs moisture in
order to take up and move calcium
to the fruit.
Squash: High temperatures
(over 86 degrees) accelerate flower
closing (mid to late morning), so
pollination must be accomplished
by bees early in the morning.
Squash and pumpkin flowers must
be pollinated within a few hours of
opening, or will fall off the plant.
Peppers: Drought stress early in
the season decreases leaf area and
fruit yield, especially during blos-
soming. The optimal temperature
for growing bell peppers is 72 de-
grees; hot peppers can withstand
somewhat higher temperatures.
Temperatures above 90 can stop
fruit set altogether on bell peppers,
especially under dry conditions,
and even temperatures in the 80s
can decrease yield by 50%.
Potatoes: Drought can cause tu-
bers to crack, resulting in mis-
shapen tubers at harvest.
Cucumbers: Heat and drought
increase bitterness.
Green beans: Fruit set of beans
will be reduced or stopped alto-
gether at temperatures over 85 de-
grees, with some variation in
cultivars. Bush-type (as opposed to
pole) beans have fairly shallow root
systems, so gardeners need to be
careful to keep their soil moist.
Smaller-seeded cultivars germi-
nate better in warm (over 80 de-
grees) soils; larger-seeded cultivars
in cooler (54 degree) soils.
Sweet corn: Corn is one of the
most heat-tolerant vegetables, but
is still sensitive during silking. The
primary concern with hot tempera-
tures is to maintain water supply
to the roots to ensure good "tip-fill"
of the ears.
Lettuce: Many types of lettuce
will not germinate when soil tem-
peratures are over 80 to 85 degrees,
so late summer plantings for a fall
crop must be grown from trans-
plants germinated in a cooler place.
Broccoli & Cauliflower: Temper-
atures over 80 degrees disrupt
head development, leading to small
scattered bunches of florets. Water
stress can cause the heads to de-
velop too quickly, with similar re-

"Some tomato growers in other
areas of the country are resorting
to shadecloth or even mist systems
to cool the plants" Burrows said.
"Although we generally encourage
drip systems to avoid plant dis-
eases and to conserve water, short
periods of overhead watering may
be beneficial to cool the plants dur-
ing the hottest hours of the day, es-
pecially when humidity levels are
low. However, avoid having water
on the foliage for more than a few
hours at a time, as longer periods
of leaf wetness allow diseases to in-

invite the park superintendent to a
KCBA meeting.
There was some discussion on
the rails to trails, which is still in
the planning stages.
Gene Christensen asked if there
would be any support from KCBA
concerning the city adoption of the
comprehensive plan?
Due to a conflict of interest (City
of Kadoka/KCBA), Ulmen turned
the meeting over to Cindy
Wilmarth, who then asked the
members for discussion.
Christensen, and others, said
they have not been following the
comprehensive plan.
After discussion members said
with only a few KCBA members at-
tending the meeting, they could not
speak for the entire group and
everyone should do it individually.
Christensen questioned that if
economic development can not
move forward without the plan, it
needs to be adopted. He said, The
course we are on isnt working.
KCBA members met for their
monthly meeting on Thursday, Au-
gust 2 at the H&H Restaurant.
Patty Ulmen called the meeting
to order in the absence of President
Jackie Stilwell.
Cindy Wilmarth reported that

A bill from Rosenbaums Signs in
the amount of $2,861.69 was ap-
proved. This included work to the
Kadoka sign east of town and a
new wrap for the sign.
Later in the meeting it was
noted the sign on the west side of
Kadoka also needs attention.
Kenny Wilmarth said hes working
with Rosenbaums. KCBA members
said they would like to see drafts
for the sign at the September meet-
It was mentioned that Kadoka
Area High School homecoming will
be on Friday, September 21. Jim

rize the purchase of the Punt, Pass

Patty Ulmen said the year-to-
date 3Bs revenue is down by over
$2,000. She said, for now, the
budget will stay the same, however,
next year, if the revenue is not up,
money will need to come out of
KCBA membership dues. It was ex-
pected that revenue will be up at
the end of summer.

The Kadoka Area School Board
held a special meeting on Thurs-
day, August 2 at 8 p.m.
Board members present were
Ross Block, Dale Christensen and
DJ Addison. Member Dawn Ras-
mussen was present via speaker
phone and Mark Williams was also
present via speaker phone during
part of the meeting.
The meeting was held to discuss
housing needs for the elementary
Superintendent Jamie Hermann
stated that several property own-
ers had been contacted to inquire
about the possibility of renting a
house for the principal and his fam-
ily. The search for a rental property
has not been successful.
Elementary Principal Jeff Ne-
mecek stated that even though
there are several homes for sale at
the present time in Kadoka, pur-
chasing one is not an option due to
the fact that his current house is
listed on the market and has not
been sold yet.
Considering the situation, the
school board was proposing the op-
tion of purchasing a house and
renting it to the principal.
Several people in attendance
stated that they felt the school
should not be in the business of
purchasing houses for rent and
concerned with the property being
removed from the tax roll.
The proper notice of the special
meeting and posting of the agenda
was questioned, as well as the ex-
ecutive session on the agenda for
the purpose of marketing and pric-
ing strategies.
Hermann stated that the school
attorney recommended that the
board enter executive session
under that reason.
After a twenty minute executive
session, the board returned to open
session with no action taken.

Feeding the troops is not an easy task when there are 106
campers and over 70 volunteers. Each day begins with 24 dozen of eggs
and 60 pounds of pancake flour. Over the four days, more than 290 pounds
of hamburger and 170 pounds of roast beef will be consumed.

Psalm 25:3-5
Waiting for God's timing is neither passive nor idle-
-it takes discipline and commitment. I can think of four
basic requirements for successful waiting.
Faith. The Lord's ways and timing are nothing like
ours (Isa. 55:8-9). From a human standpoint, He usually does things in a totally different way than we
expect. But as we trust Him more, we'll discover that His approach isn't so strange after all. And when
we live in harmony with God's will, His timing starts to make sense.
Humility. To wait for the Lord, you must be convinced of your need for Him. Submission to His divine
will requires humility--you cannot charge ahead with your own plans and at the same time be fully sur-
rendered to God.
Patience. Are you willing to remain in your current position until you receive clear divine direction?
Pausing for clarity from God does not mean that you disengage and allow circumstances to fall apart
around you. Waiting upon the Lord is a deliberate decision that requires patience.
Courage. Waiting for God often takes courage, especially when there is pressure to act. If you're not
careful, you might stop listening to the Lord and follow other advice. So keep your ear attuned to the
voice of Almighty God, and you won t go wrong.
Waiting upon the Lord is one of the wisest, most important decisions we make in life. And contrary to
popular assumptions, it is an active endeavor that requires faith, humility, patience, and courage. When
you rely upon God and wait for His timing, the various facets of life fall into place.

Creative Breakfast Ideas
Since you were a young child,
youve probably heard someone tell
you that breakfast was the most
important meal of the day. They
were correct. We all fast for eight
to 12 hours after going all night
without food. Eating breakfast
serves to break the fast or refuel
your body.
Breakfast should provide about
one-fourth of your daily recom-
mended intake of calories, vita-
mins and minerals. For children,
this means about 400-600 calories
should be consumed at breakfast.
Children who eat breakfast in-
crease their nutrition. They are
more likely to meet their daily
needs for calcium, iron, riboflavin,
vitamins A and D.
Kids who eat a healthy break-
fast regularly tend to have better
concentration and are more pre-
pared to learn. They are more
alert, have fewer behavioral issues
and are more involved at school.
They are also not as tired or irrita-
Children often skip breakfast
because they are busy rushing to
school or they arent hungry in the
morning. Its difficult to replace
nutrients missed at breakfast, so
kids should be encouraged to take
foods that they can eat on the way
to school.
By thinking outside of the box,
you can prepare breakfast using
simple and time efficient methods.
Try these tips to keep breakfast
fun for the whole family:
Make breakfast smoothies by
combining orange juice, bananas,
strawberries and blueberries in a
blender and blend until smooth.
Add a little low-fat milk or fat-free
plain yogurt to your ingredients to
increase calcium and protein.
Use a whole wheat tortilla to
wrap around scrambled eggs and
grated cheese in the morning or
prepare them the night before. Add
variety to your wrap by adding
black beans, diced tomatoes, or
turkey sausage.
For no-cook breakfast ideas try
a fruit salad and a granola bar or
half of a whole-wheat bagel with
low-fat cream cheese and straw-
berry slices. Make yogurt parfaits
the night before by layering low-
fat yogurt, fruit and granola in a
clear cup; store them in the refrig-
Do you have a plan for those
mornings when you are in a really
big rush? Grab an apple, a string
cheese and a few whole-wheat
crackers for eating on the run.
Eating breakfast helps you per-
form and feel better. Good plan-
ning for breakfast can help you
increase your total nutrients for
the day. Go to http://www.meals- for easy, online healthy

Connie Constipation is an older
woman who has controlled almost
everything throughout her life ex-
cept for her bowels. It seems the
harder shes tried to make the
bowels move, the more constipated
or irregular shes become. Shes al-
ways sought for the right laxative,
and is now using herbal lighten-
ing without a lot of success. She
commonly feels bloated, waiting
for the call, often sitting on the
commode for long periods of time,
pushing too hard, and then shes
loose as a goose having tripled her
laxative dose. Connie is one frus-
trated woman.
The causes for constipation are
numerous to include too little ex-
ercise, too few fiber foods, internal
scars from previous surgery, diver-
ticulosis, low thyroid, and even
colon cancer. Certainly everyone
with constipation needs to con-
sider first seeing a doctor for the
proper evaluation.
But I believe the most common
cause for constipation around here
is the long-term use of the stimu-
lant type of laxatives such as Ex-
lax, Correctol, stool softener WITH
LAXATIVE, Senna, and many
herbal type combinations.
Realize that abruptly stopping
stimulant laxatives causes re-
bound constipation, and thus de-
pendency. Many people have a
problem perpetuated by the very
drug they use to treat it. This is
the reason to gradually taper off
these bowel irritants, and then
avoid them in the future.
Good bowel health starts with
exercise, a diet of fruit, vegetables,
fiber foods; and then if needed by
adding ground golden flax seed. I
suggest buying it whole and grind-
ing the flax in a coffee grinder, (
cup at a time prevents it turning
rancid,) then daily mixing one or
two tablespoons with breakfast ce-
real, yogurt, or applesauce.
If an individual is still having
problems I advise plain stool sof-
Start with one to three capsules
once or twice a day, adjusting the
dose accordingly. If necessary, res-
cue with over-the-counter polyeth-
ylene glycol (generic MiraLax,)
milk of magnesia, or sorbitol.
These are effective and do not
cause rebound.
If she exercises daily, eats the
right food with enough fiber, and
avoids laxatives, then Connie will
be back in control.

cause of the rules dictated that

Other incidents of micro man-
agement by regulation involve set
backs when a modification or im-
provement permit is applied for. If
an existing structure is too close to
the property line moving or de-
struction of the offending structure
could be required before any im-
provement is permitted. This had a
negative effect on several property
improvement plans I have heard of.
If the plan is adopted our new vo-
cabulary will include more words
like population densities and
zoning which could require cer-
tain types of development only in
designated areas.
Compliance is another great

Dear Editor:
Our Kadoka city council is going
to again address the adoption of a
comprehensive plan at their
meeting on Monday, August 13th.
Folks appointed as planning ad-
visers by our city council were ded-
icated to the statement that they
wanted to clean up Kadoka. They
recommended our city council vote
to agree to an extremely vague
Comprehensive Plan proposal
based in part on estimated and out-
dated data. Perhaps some believe
this would solve local problems.
Others feel the council could be in-
sulated from law suits when mov-
ing against a property owner. They
do not realize that these problems
will be grandfathered. Until prop-
erty owners seek permits to modify
their property they cannot be reg-
ulated by state or federal govern-
ment absent health or safety
concerns. Those too could become
legal issues.
One example of grandfathering
involved an older couple who
moved a surplus railroad depot and
remodeled it into an very attractive
retirement home near Ogallala,
Nebraska. This was done before
their property was annexed by the
city after a comprehensive plan
was adopted. All went well until
the gentleman needed a ramp for
his wheelchair. That modification

USDA Farm Service Agency
(FSA) State Executive Director
Craig Schaunaman, has an-
nounced that USDA has authorized
the release of additional Conserva-
tion Reserve Program (CRP) acres
that are considered to be environ-
mentally sensitive for emergency
haying and grazing purposes.
"The inclusion of these acres
under the CRP emergency haying
and grazing provisions allows live-
stock producers access to forage on
approximately 460,000 CRP acres
in South Dakota that are devoted
to wetland and farmable wetland
practices," said Schaunaman.
"USDA, along with Federal, State,
and local partners collaborated to
support the release of these addi-
tional acres in response to livestock
feed needs that are prevalent as a
result of the wide spread drought
conditions across the continental
United States," he said.
Emergency haying and grazing
of CRP has been authorized for all
South Dakota counties. Producers
must file an application with their
local FSA office prior to conducting
any haying or grazing activity.
Under CRP emergency haying and
grazing provisions, haying and
grazing may begin on August 2nd;
however, haying may not exceed
August 31, 2012, and grazing may
not exceed September 30, 2012.
Currently there are approximately
one million acres of CRP available
for emergency haying and grazing
in South Dakota.
On July 11, 2012, Secretary Vil-
sack announced that the 25 percent
CRP payment reduction will be re-
duced to 10 percent for all 2012
emergency haying and grazing au-
thorizations in order to provide
greater flexibility to farmers and
ranchers in response to the drought
Under emergency haying and
grazing provisions, producers are
reminded that the same CRP
acreage cannot be both hayed
and/or grazed at the same time.
For example, if 50 percent of a field
or contiguous field is hayed, the re-
maining unhayed 50 percent can-
not be grazed; it must remain
unhayed and ungrazed for wildlife
habitat purposes.
In an effort to proactively serve
South Dakota farmers and ranch-
ers, the South Dakota Farm Serv-

OBryan Fun Night

OByans arena
I fed the birds on the way home
from church today. As I drove down
the road, I occasionally tossed a
piece of bread Frisbee-style out the
open window on the passenger side
of the pickup. I figured the spar-
rows, meadowlarks and other fly-
ing creatures deserved a treat. It
was also a good way to get rid of
some unwanted bread.
As it happened, I had stored an
older loaf of bread in the freezer
over a month ago planning to
make some bread pudding out of it
for the coffee time after church.
Well, yesterday, I dug that loaf
back out, thawed it, and collected
the utensils needed to make bread
pudding. Unfortunately, Id origi-
nally left the bread out too long be-
fore freezing it so the third and
fourth slices had big splotches of
green mold. So much for bread
pudding. Think of something else
to make for church. Some brownies
might do the trick, but what to do
with moldy bread?
In the past, that would have
been simple. Feed it to the chick-
ens. Alas, at present we have no
chickens so that wont work. We
do, however, have a whole prairie
full of every kind of bird imagina-
ble, and all of them probably have
digestive systems that wouldnt be
bothered by the odd bit of bread or,
in fact, lots of other stuff that is
only slightly digestible by humans.
Thats one of the neater things
about chickens. You can feed them
almost anything, and theyll thrive
on it and, whats more, construct
eggs out of it. In the past, Ive had
food go so bad that I was afraid to
feed it to the cats for fear of mak-
ing them sick, but flying creatures
dont seem adversely affected in
the least. I give you buzzards as an
example. They actually crave stuff
so rotten that, if we could even get
it down, it wouldnt stay there or
else it would probably make us
deathly ill. Oh for the digestive
system of a buzzard. You wouldnt
ever have to wash dishes or worry
in the slightest about sanitation or
the wholesomeness of food. Such a
Bird watching, incidentally, is
rather enjoyable. I am supposed to
be the authority on these creatures
since I took a semester of bird
watching (ornithology) in college.
It did help me to identify the more
common species correctly most of
the time, but there is always the
rare one that sends me running for
one of several guidebooks. We also
have usually had a bird feeder set
up on the deck or somewhere close
in order to attract birds to watch.
Its rather fun. If wife Corinne
spots an unknown variety, shell
often ask me to come look and tell
her what it is. If I dont happen to
know, I usually just say its proba-
bly a duck, which, as you might
imagine, yields me a look of scorn.
Corinne somehow doesnt think
that paddle-footed ducks are likely
to frequent a bird feeder where
there are only skinny little roosts
to perch on.
We dont have a regular feeder
set up right now, but earlier this
year we enjoyed feeding the grack-
les by a different method. These
black fellows were often seen out-
side our back window so one day I
decided to see how they liked
bread. I tossed four old pieces out
for them. They were delighted.
One fellow practically jumped up
and down in excitement. He
started carrying it off bit by bit to
who knows where. Maybe he had a
family to support or something.
Sometimes he would be joined by
friends who were quick to get the
picture. They, too, would hop right
in and help themselves.
At present, the black guys
arent around much since they
probably have their offspring
raised and are all flying together
in a flock somewhere else. The
sparrows are ever with us, of
course, but Corinne wont let me
feed them right now since she
wants them to keep the grasshop-
per population in check. Theyve
been doing that. Quite often you
see a little fellow working on a
huge hopper thats bigger than its
head. Eventually, most of the hop-
per is gone and the bird is looking
around for more. Perhaps hes
eaten all the tasty parts and wants
a fresh kill. Im not sure whats
going on or why, but the process is
entertaining no matter what. Still,
the prohibition against feeding the
sparrows made me look elsewhere
for a different method of moldy-
bread disposal. The road ditches
seemed the answer and thus the
Frisbee tosses out the window.
Somewhere, right now, a bird is
probably thanking me. He or she is
entirely welcome.
Feeding the Birds
Lookin Around
by Syd Iwan
Crystal Paulson has been travel-
ing the world lately, or at least as
far as El Paso, Texas. She went
there to help watch over her grand-
daughter, Keeghan, while
Keeghans mom, Davina, was in
Florida in connection with some
military training. Davinas hus-
band, Tracy, has recently returned
stateside from a stint of military
service in Afghanistan, but he was
not sure he was up to taking care
of a busy six-year-old without a lit-
tle help. Crystals sister-in-law,
April Obr, (Garys wife) went along
to help. While there, various out-
ings were taken with care being
taken not to accidentally get across
the border into Mexico since many
roads lead there. Some thrift stores
and flea markets were visited.
They left a week ago Thursday and
got home this Saturday with April
being dropped at her home in
Rapid City before Crystal returned
to Belvidere. Crystal said the
weather there was very hot and
humid and miserable or about like
it was here. She also said the main
draw of El Paso would be a grand-
kid and not necessarily the city it-
self although there were a few old
buildings that were interesting to
look at or tour.
Greg and Dana Badure have
been kept really busy lately with
their rest-area maintenance east of
town since the freeway is loaded
with motorcycles and other
tourists. On Sunday evening, kids
Brisa and Martin had a guest
overnight, namely Tyce Amiotte
who is a grandson of Rhonda Terk-
ildsen. Dana said that suggestions
of going to bed were met with re-
sistance as too much fun was being
had. On Wednesday, the kids par-
ticipated in the fun night at the
OBryans. Fun was in fact had de-
spite the temperatures reaching
into the hundreds that day.
Bunny Green was visited by her
daughter, Darlene Wiedemer, on
Wednesday. Darlene had recently
acquired a new poodle and needed
to show it off. Wally Wells came by
several days last week with the
mail but couldnt stay too long as
things are fairly busy up at the gas
station which he runs. On Monday,
Bunny was expecting a visit from
her granddaughter from Okla-
homa. She will be in the area sev-
eral weeks visiting her mom at
Sturgis. Bunnys foot has now
healed enough from being stabbed
by a toothpick that she was able to
get out to church on Sunday. She
said she wasnt quite up to foot
races just yet, but at least she could
get around without a lot of misery.
Francie Davis and sons, Grady,
Garrett and Gage, were in Philip
on Friday and Saturday. Francie
was on the food committee for the
4-H achievement days where they
fed approximately 500 people over
five meals. Francie also read some
of her poetry at the talent contest
although not in competition but as
an addition to the event. She said
reading poetry to a lot of people is
a more nervous operation than
reciting to family and friends. On
Wednesday, Francie and boys plus
Abby Fortune helped Bob and
Chuck Fortune AI about 230
heifers over at the Carr place near
Cedar Butte. They started early
but, by the time they got done, the
temperature read 99 degrees. This
week, the crew will be in Kadoka
helping with Rodeo Bible Camp.
They will be running the conces-
sion stand.
Marie Addison and Grace McKil-
lip attended George Andersons
birthday party on Wednesday of
last week at the senior citizen
building in Midland. They had a
blast. George turned 76, and his
kids were all there to help him cel-
ebrate. His youngest son, Ryan,
and his wife live at Murdo and visit
the ranch fairly often. Marie said
they drove in heavy rain most of
the way from Midland back to
Murdo, but Murdo ended up get-
ting very little moisture. This
week, Marie will be in Montana
visiting relatives and celebrating
her 90th birthday a little early. She
expects there will be a second party
locally later this year when she ac-
tually turns 90.
Larry Grimme said Francie
Davis and boys have been helping
clean out the Christian School
building lately. Lois Grimme had
collected many teaching materials
in her 21 years in town, and much
of it was still good but needed to be
distributed to other people who
home school or can use it in other
ways. Larry also said the bass are
biting pretty well at the Belvidere
Dam, and he sometimes stops to
visit those who are fishing along
the road.
Syd Iwan traveled to Rapid City
last week to get a new chair for his
son, Chance, and some other sup-
plies that arent available locally.
The freeway was busy with many
motorcycles, campers and trailers.
On Sunday, if a person traveled
east on the freeway, he would pass
about 100 or more motorcycles
headed west on the opposite lane
over each ten miles. This was just
the visible cycles and not those in-
visible inside the many trailers
also headed west.

Beckwiths were supper guests of
Andrea Beckwith. Wednesday the
Burmas went to Miller, but they
left Beaver and Jade with Jim and
Marjorie, who took them to Pine
Ridge, where the Blackpipe ball
team played Martin and won 17-
13. Then they had to wait around
until it was their turn to play
again, which was after midnight.
They played Porcupine and won
13-0, as the game was called when
they were far enough ahead. They
didnt get home until 4:00 a.m.
Chris WoodenKnife had a rum-
mage and taco sale at the Norris

Lehman. Monday, August 30, there
was a pot luck meal at the Clarence
Krogman home, with Father Terry
Brennan as special guest.
Quinn Thomas Krogman was
born to Darrin and Amber Krog-

baby. However, complications arose
and they flew him to Sioux Falls
and put him in intensive care,
where he is steadily improving and
was doing well at the last report.
Cliff and Elaine took Owen with
them so he could see his parents
and his little brother this past
weekend. Adam and Jody went
with them, also.
Rose West and Jeannine Wood-
ward were among the Master Gar-
deners making the trek to Donita

day) at the museum in White
River; instead of a meal, this time
they served root beer floats.
Lightning apparently started a
fire by the barn at West and Wood-

ently put out by the sudden
downpour of rain that night, as the
burned out area wasnt discovered
until the next day or so. They were
without power for awhile Thursday

weekend. They had been in Iowa
for a wedding and came on west be-
fore heading back home. They vis-
ited the Hubers Sunday.
The Hubers have finished com-
bining wheat and now are checking
over the sunflowers.
Kenda, Nicole, Braeden and
Bradley Huber were in Winner
Thursday the 27th, and one of the

Parents of pre-teens and college
freshmen should check their kids
immunizations before the school
year starts, says a state health of-
Parents should know that ba-
bies and toddlers arent the only
ones who need immunizations,
said Dr. Lon Kightlinger, State Epi-
demiologist for the Department of
Kightlinger said college fresh-
men living in dorms and unvacci-
nated kids entering high school are
at high risk for meningococcal dis-
ease and should be vaccinated.
A bacterial infection, meningo-
coccal disease is an inflammation
of the tissues covering the brain
and spinal cord. Symptoms include
fever, severe headache, stiff neck,
vomiting and a rash. Prompt treat-
ment can prevent disability and
death. Ten to 14 percent of people
with the disease die and up to 19
percent of survivors may suffer
permanent disabilities such as
hearing loss, limb amputation or
brain disease. South Dakota typi-
cally reports 3 cases of meningococ-
cal disease a year. To date in 2012,
there have been no cases reported.
A pertussis, or whooping cough,
vaccine booster dose is recom-
mended at 11-12 years when im-
munity begins to wane. The initial
pertussis series is given to children
at 2 months, 4 months, 6 months,
15-18 months, and 4-6 years.
Whooping cough is a serious ill-
ness that causes uncontrollable
coughing, rib fractures, pneumo-
nia, loss of consciousness and even
death. Young children are at high-
est risk, with two-thirds of those
under age 1 who get it needing hos-
pitalization. There have been six
pertussis cases reported in South
Dakota to date in 2012.
Meningococcal vaccine is avail-
able from family health care
providers and campus student
health centers. The department
provides the vaccine for those 11-18
years of age who are eligible for the
federal Vaccines for Children Pro-
gram (Medicaid eligible, Native
American or Alaskan Native, unin-
sured or underinsured). The vac-
cine is free for these children but
providers may charge an adminis-
tration fee.
The department provides the
childhood series of whooping cough
vaccine and the booster dose free
for 11-12 year olds. Providers may
charge an administration fee.
To find a vaccine provider, see
cine.aspx. Learn more about
meningitis or whooping cough at

is a key objective of the depart-
ments Health 2020 initiative.

SDSU Extension Specialist says
now is not a good time to treat
lawns with herbicide.
"As the drought continues and
lawns are maintained with the
semi-weekly waterings to sustain
the root system, it may seem like a
good time to treat all those green
weeds, crab grass, quack grass,
etc., etc. Please resist all inclina-
tions along this line, any applica-
tion of herbicide now would
probably not be particularly effec-
tive against the weed and the grass
would be further stressed," said
Katherine Osterloh, SDSU Exten-
sion Horticulture Assistant.
In addition, Osterloh says fertil-
izing a lawn during the current
drought conditions will not help
keep it green or bring it back.
"Again, any chemicals applied
while the lawn is struggling to sur-
vive would only add further stress,"
Osterloh said.
She says the same is true for
trees or shrubs.
"If possible, continue to water
well, but resist applying chemicals
of any kind," she said.
Time to water
As the drought continues, and
significant precipitation has not
been received, if a lawn has been
dormant for six weeks or longer,
Osterloh says it is time to begin
watering weekly.
"Especially if it is bluegrass or
another 'cool season' grass," Oster-
loh said.
She suggests an intial watering
of at least an inch to inch and a
half, then an inch each week after
that. If this watering schedule does
not bring the lawn out of dormancy,
she says it may be dead and plans
should be made to replace this fall.

manage landscape during the
drought, and sustainable landscap-
ing for the future, visit
