Livestock producers need to test water to reduce risk of sulfates & blue green algae
Livestock producers need to test their water for sulfates, says Adele Harty, SDSU Extension Cow/Calf Field Specialist. "There have been some ranchers who have lost cattle in the western part of the state due to water quality issues," Harty said. "This means it is even more critical to test the water before turning cattle into a pasture." As the drought continues, Harty says water quality issues continue to worsen as low precipitation and increased evaporation from wind and high temperatures increase the risk of high sulfate water. "With no rainfall to recharge the dams, the concentration of sulfates continues to increase. Ranchers need to test wells, as well as stock dams," Harty said. Harty explains that excess sulfate leads to problems in livestock ranging from reduced water intake to poisoning and death. "If poor water quality is a problem, it can result in reduced water intake which in turn will cause animals to reduce feed intake, leading to reduced performance," Harty said. Based on data from several research projects, Harty said levels of sulfates that will reduce livestock performance are 2000 3000 ppm. If cattle are consuming water with a sulfate level of 15002500 ppm it could cause temporary diarrhea. At higher concentrations of sulfate, i.e. levels greater than 3000 ppm, sulfates are acutely toxic, contributing to polioencephalomalacia (PEM). This basically means it causes softening and deterioration of brain tissue. High sulfate water & blue green algae Harty explains that water that is high in sulfate salts can be found throughout the western portions of the Northern Plains, including the Dakotas, Nebraska, Wyoming, and Montana. "Water high in sulfates will have a bitter taste. Animals will avoid it if better quality sources of water are available, but will be forced to consume it if that is their only choice, especially in hot weather," she said. She adds that non-native cattle are at greater risk than those raised on sulfate water. "There is a higher incidence of morbidity and mortality in naïve animals, brought in from other states, than in animals that have been drinking high sulfate water their entire life. Preliminary research suggests there is genetic variation among individual animals in a herd for susceptibility to high sulfate levels," Harty said. "Susceptible animals have likely been eliminated - died or were culled for poor performance - in native herds that have been exposed for generations to high-sulfate water, but naïve herds will be likely to have susceptible individuals." Along with sulfates, the hot dry weather provides a perfect environment for production of blue green algae. Harty says if a body of water is infected with this algae and it is consumed by livestock, death is certain. She says the algae is difficult to detect because it does not clump together like more conventional algae. Livestock owners should look for it on the edges of a dugout or body of water. If they find blue green algae, Harty says the best method to protect their cattle is to fence it off. "It is challenging to get rid of and unpredictable," she said. If a livestock producer thinks their livestock died from consuming blue green algae, she encourages them to contact their vet for verification. Signs to watch for Dr. Russ Daly, Extension Veterinarian says if cattle have consumed water high in sulfates and may have PEM, symptoms range from reduced water and feed intake, lethargy, star-gazing, headpressing to blindness, staggering, going down and possibly end in death. He says cattle can progress through this range of symptoms rapidly without treatment and recommends working with your local veterinarian in the treatment of PEM. Options available Unfortunately, Harty says ranchers with high-sulfate water have limited options. She says if rural water is available; the return on investment in pipelines would be well worth the cost. "If you are in an area that is not served by a rural water district, drilling a new well is another option, but it is expensive and has the risk that the water may also have high sulfate levels," Harty said. Another option, though extremely expensive, is to haul lowsulfate water to the pastures. Unfortunately, this may be the only viable option, at least temporarily. Sulfate testing available at SDSU Regional Extension Centers To ensure that your water source is safe for livestock, Harty recommends testing water periodically throughout the summer. "Some water that is muddy and murky may be OK, while other water that is clear may be quite dangerous. Many are surprised to hear this, but clear water often means there's little to no life because of high sulfates," she said. SDSU Extension Regional Centers have electroconductivity (EC) meters, which measure total salt content in water. This is an indicator of sulfate levels. If the EC meter reads greater than 3,000 ppm total dissolved solids, SDSU Extension recommends additional testing at an accredited laboratory to determine the actual sulfate level.

Eight Tips for taxpayers who receive an IRS notice
Receiving a notice from the Internal Revenue Service is no cause for alarm. Every year the IRS sends millions of letters and notices to taxpayers. In the event one shows up in your mailbox, here are eight things you should know. 1. Don’t panic. Many of these letters can be dealt with very simply. 2. There are a number of reasons the IRS sends notices to taxpayers. The notice may request payment of taxes, notify you of a change to your account or request additional information. The notice you receive normally covers a very specific issue about your account or tax return. 3.  Each letter and notice offers specific instructions on what you need to do to satisfy the inquiry. 4.  If you receive a notice about a correction to your tax return, you should review the correspondence and compare it with the information on your return. 5. If you agree with the correction to your account, usually no reply is necessary unless a payment is due. 6. If you do not agree with the correction the IRS made, it is important that you respond as requested. Respond to the IRS in writing to explain why you disagree. Include any documents and information you wish the IRS to consider, along with the bottom tear-off portion of the notice. Mail the information to the IRS address shown in the lower left corner of the notice. Allow at least 30 days for a response from the IRS. 7. Most correspondence can be handled without calling or visiting an IRS office. However, if you have questions, call the telephone number in the upper right corner of the notice. When you call, have a copy of your tax return and the correspondence available. 8. Keep copies of any correspondence with your tax records. For more information about IRS notices and bills, see Publication 594, The IRS Collection Process. For information about penalties and interest charges, see Publication 17, Your Federal Income Tax for Individuals. Both publications are available at IRS.gov or by calling 800-TAXFORM (800-829-3676).

Discussion was also held on the 2012-2013 sports calendars. They are done and ready to be distributed. Each sponsor will receive one and the rest will be available at the school office or Farmers State Bank. The Faith Booster Club would like to ask all parents, staff, and community members to please consider joining their  organization. They have limited their fundraising to the sports calendar, and the tailgate supper. They have also done a few small activities like conducting bingo under the tent at stock show, and a football toss is in the works for some home football games in October.  If you are interested in joining the Faith Booster Club simply come to the next meeting on Sept. 12th at the Faith Library at 6:00 pm or contact Traci Ingalls at the school anytime.  They hope to see you all at the tailgate supper.

Johnson announces more agriculture disaster designations, extension of emergency grazing
Washington, DC (Aug. 29)— U.S. Senator Tim Johnson (D-SD) announced today that 21 South Dakota counties have been designated disaster areas. Additionally, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has extended emergency grazing on some Conservation Reservation Program acres until November 30, 2012.  “With these designations, producers will be able access important assistance as they continue to battle the terrible drought conditions,” said Johnson. “By extending emergency grazing, producers will have crucial access to feed. I am pleased that the Administration is working hard to use tools available to help South Dakota farmers and ranchers.” Counties designated today as primary disaster areas are: Brown, Brule, Buffalo, Corson, Faulk, Hand, Harding, Hughes, Hyde, Lake, Lyman, Mellette, Miner, Minnehaha, Moody, Perkins, Potter, Sanborn, Stanley, Sully and Ziebach. Contiguous designated today as contiguous disaster areas are: Aurora, Beadle, Bennett, Brookings, Butte, Campbell, Charles Mix, Davison, Day, Dewey, Edmunds, Gregory, Haakon, Hanson, Jackson, Jerauld, Jones, Kingsbury, Lincoln, McCook, McPherson, Marshall, Meade, Pennington, Spink, Todd, Tripp, Turner and Walworth. Under the designation announced by USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack, producers are eligible to apply for Farm Service Agency (FSA) Emergency Loans. FSA will take into account losses, security available and repayment ability. More information can be found online at http://www.fsa.usda.gov. Producers should visit their local FSA office for assistance. 

Memories of the Past
I was glad to see the story and picture Craig Ness sent in of himself and Rattlesnake Pete. It told of Pete’s dam being a popular place for picnics and bullhead fishing. A few years before he died, Ernie Gottschalk had brought me a couple pictures of a picnic at the dam in the 1920s. We had fun identifying the people in the picture. It must have been the 4th of July. All the people were sitting on the ground around spread out table cloths eating. My dad, Matt Clasen was a good fisherman and a fast fish cleaner and had came prepared. A few others ‘may’ have helped him. The ladies fried up a good amount of fish on a campfire. As Matt told it – and as it showed in the picture, he sat at the down end of the table cloth. A family of non-fishing non-cleaners sat at the head of the table cloth with the fish platter at their elbow. “My how they liked those crispy fried bullheads!” Matt was a naive person so never asked for the fish to be passed around and they weren’t. Matt never got a taste of his labor! Irean Clasen Jordan

Work begins on Interstate 90 near Wall
The South Dakota Department of Transportation advises motorists that crews will begin work on Interstate 90 near Wall from east of Exit 110 to Exit 121 on Tuesday, Sept. 4. The effort will include construction of median crossovers, ramp detours, and shoulder widening in preparation for a 2013 project to reconstruct an 11mile segment of eastbound I-90 near Wall. Traffic during construction will be reduced to one lane at times in both the eastbound and westbound directions. The speed limit will be reduced to 45 mph when workers are present and motorists should watch for suddenly slowing and merging traffic. Loiseau Construction is the prime contractor on the $4.6 million project.

Hope everyone had a nice Labor Day weekend. This was our last legal holiday until Thanksgiving! We had mostly hot days last week. Wednesday we hit 107º and and Saturday 104º. Hopefully we won’t have anymore of those this year. It is supposed to be cooler the rest of this week. Dave and Eldora Fischbach went back to Rapid City last Tuesday and spent several days. Brothers Mike and Dan joined them. They had moved dad, Andy, to the nursing home in New Underwood over a week ago and the guys finished moving his things during the week. Eldora taught another quilting class on Friday and they returned home on Saturday. Nathan and son

Kasey, Watertown, spent the Labor Day weekend with them. Danny Miles joined his mother Esther and brother Ron at Medora for the Labor Day weekend. They had an enjoyable weekend, although Danny said it was hot! This weekend, Sunday, our cousin Rory Hoffman will be inducted into the SD Country Music Hall of Fame. He, his dad Rolly, two sisters Kim and Konnie and brother Reed will be performing at the Deadwood Mountain Grand this Friday night. Rory, originally of Lemmon, now lives in Nashville. This is also the weekend, Saturday, that our friend Carv Thompson will be inducted into the SD Hall of Fame. We congratulate both of these deserving gentlemen.

South Dakota Country Music Hall of Fame inductee Rory Hoffman to play Deadwood Mountain Grand
DEADWOOD, S.D. (8/31/12) – Joined by his accompanying family of musicians, Nashville-based guitar, accordion, keyboardist and multi-instrumentalist master Rory Hoffman, originally of Lemmon, So. Dak. and due to be inducted into the South Dakota Country Music Hall of Fame the same weekend he plays in Deadwood, will take to the Deadwood Mountain Grand event center stage as the anchor act in the Rory Hoffman Family Reunion Concert at 9 p.m. Friday, September 7. Hoffman's induction into the South Dakota Country Music Hall of Fame is set to take place Sunday, September 9. Recently featured on the front page of Nashville's "The Tennessean" newspaper, which described his style as "unusual and compelling," Hoffman, a blind multi-instrumentalist who began teaching himself to play guitar and piano at age 3, is gaining great accolades from some of the best in the country music business, including Brad Paisley and Keith Urban, both quoted in the story. Blind since birth, Hoffman who has mastered no less than 14 stringed, keyboard and wind instruments, grew up recording and touring with his family, which includes three other siblings who are also blind. The entire family will join Hoffman on the Deadwood Mountain Grand Event Center stage as part of the reunion concert. "This is a very unique opportunity, not only to hear Rory, but the whole family in concert," said Deadwood Mountain Grand entertainment director Bob Wagoner. “They're coming from all over to celebrate Rory's accomplishment, so this is a true family reunion.” Hoffman was raised on a small ranch in North Dakota and grew up recording and touring with the family Gospel band. By age 5 he was the drummer in the family band. In 2001 he traveled to Nashville for the first time to record his Gospel instrumental CD, "Blind Faith." He moved to Nashville permanently in the spring of 2008 and currently works as a freelance session and touring musician. In addition to his own releases, Rory also records and performs regularly with Texas western swing hall of fame member Carolyn Martin, Paul Kramer and Swing Street, and Nashville's premier gypsy jazz trio, the Gypsy Hombres. In 2004 and 2005 Hoffman received Instrumentalist of the Year from the ICMA based in Nashville. Rory's personal musical career was jumpstarted in 1999 upon winning Grand Champion Instrumentalist at the Christian Artist Seminar in the Rockies. Later, he helped form Depot Music Productions, based in Mobridge So. Dak. There he self-produced his second album "Fishin,'" this time choosing country music as his theme. His most recent release, called "Swing Expedition," demonstrates his abilities and inventiveness on almost every instrument he plays. Tunes range from a gypsy jazz arrangement of a Star Wars theme, a bossa nova rendition of a classic country song, to an all-harmonica treatment of a Cole Porter standard. Tickets are available at the Deadwood Mountain Grand Box Office -- The Company Store -- or at ticketmaster.com. For more information, visit www.deadwoodmountaingrand.com .

Don't let anyone hand you the old "ball and chain" stuff. Marriage is pretty great. Granted it has its ups and downs but it's worth it! Harold Kilness entered the Spearfish Hospital last Tuesday after he suffered a fall on Sunday. He started improving Wednesday night and may be released next week. Wednesday, Harold and I stopped at the Spearfish Hospital to visit the Kilness family as they sat with Harold. Walter and Dorothy Weichert were there visiting Gwen, Deanne, Robin, Linda and Phillip. Marv and Norma Williams joined the group that afternoon. Harold Kilness is an uncle to Allen and Harold Waterland and Norma Williams. Marv, Norma, Harold and I continued on to Ekalaka, Montana to attend a Waterland Family Reunion held at Camp Needmore. Harold and I stayed Wednesday night and drove home Thursday afternoon.

until Friday. Harold Waterland and Norma Williams’ father, Earl Waterland, was  born north of Baker, Montana at a little area near Ollie and Carlyle. Nick and Lila Caspers visited at Robert and Lacey Wonderchecks on Sunday. Harold and I were in Spearfish Sunday to attend the sixth  birthday party for our granddaughter, Cadence Kilmer. Kim Waterland Langendorfer wrecked her SUV on the way to work in Rapid City Wednesday. Thankfully, she only received scratches on her upper arm where the side window broke out as it slid along the ground. Tucker and Bev Hudson drove to Ft. Pierre on Sun. to watch the State 4-H rodeo finals. Grandson Winston Brown had a good rodeo. He won a go around in Flag Race with the fast time of the rodeo, go around in goats fast time of the rodeo, 2nd in the average in the goats, and was Reserve Champion All Around Jr. Boy. Congratulations Winston, way to go. Bev Hudson and Kay King attended a baby shower for Christy Delbridge and her new baby girl at the home of Juanita Delbridge on Friday. We'd like to wish De and Kay King a happy fiftieth anniversary. They were married August 27, 1962 at the old Presbyterian Church in Sturgis, SD. They celebrated their day by having supper with the Zane King family at the Branding Iron in Faith. After supper they stopped in for a short visit with Corinna Thompson. Tucker and Bev Hudson celebrated their forty-eighth wedding anniversary in June so we'll be looking for their fiftieth soon. Congratulations to both couples. Our weather has cooled off a little but we are still dry as all get out. Everytime we see any clouds all the ranchers check their firefighting units to see that they're full of gas and the water tanks are full. Last night there were fires north of Faith but I'm not sure whose land they were on or how much burned. We watched the lightning strike as we drove home and knew someone was in for it. Thanks to everyone who's ever swung a wet gunny sack, used a shovel or sprayed water on a prairie fire. Without all the volunteers who work so darn hard we'd be up a creek without a paddle in pretty short order. Take care and God Bless all of you.

Page 6 • September 5, 2012 • The Faith Independent Evanson Jensen 100th annniversary - Part III
After graduation from college in May of ’63 I returned again to resume my internship, which was accomplished by Dec. 31. Turning 21 that month, a requirement for licensure, I received my license after State and National Board exams. Evanson’s now had a licensed Funeral Director/Embalmer on staff, but still an intern in the Furniture Business. Invariably, long days of furniture work, carpet installation, cleaning and deliveries led to the phone ringing in the night or early morning for the ambulance or a funeral call. I was assigned the telephone after hours, and could only leave it if the old diverter dial knobs were set to a number that would answer, like in one of the Evanson family’s homes, or wherever I was going. Technology change had to come as far as I was concerned and eventually it did…to the extreme as far as the elders of the firm were concerned. We even had an electric typewriter by then and the pre-bound, hand written Funeral Record books were replaced with loose leaf binders so we could type the pages. After Mary Jean and I married and moved to our first apartment, 374-3805 came with us as well as the diverter and has been with us until our “retirement”. Faithfully she answered the phone in my absence, forgoing many of her interests or social activities to “be on call”. In 1968 the firm name changed to Evanson Jensen Furniture and Funeral Home, when Mary Jean and I purchased a 25% interest in both businesses. In 1965 the furniture challenge to be profitable had been met and the furniture operation expanded and moved to a new and larger location at 101 Main St. Thereafter, the partnership relationship flourished as well with Evie’s business experience, personality, guidance and excellent hired help. So in 1971 we were offered another 25% ownership and became equal partners, sealing the name Evanson Jensen to this day. Ollie had worked at the store since 1941 and acquired skills in decorating, knowing quality furniture and knowledge of our customers. She also would “finger peck” on the inside of a display window while someone was washing the outside. This impeccable appearance of everything was passed on to many faithful employees. Harold Crow, Helen Hintz, Jack Rafferty, Helen Baumgarten, Anna Zent, Jeff Haase, Alice Ashmore, Eyvonne Langehough, Vi Kostelecky, Bill Logan, Ross Milliken and Ray Huber and funeral home interns, Mike Smith, Curt Jerde and Joe Stout were with the firms during this 25 year period. Many a story could be told of our relationship and happenings with each but this can be reviewed in our 1987 publication of the 75th Anniversary. saw the construction of a Housing Project and enjoyed his game of golf, much like he did when his father was his partner. Our founder, R.S. “Dick” Evanson passed away in 1971, at the age of 84, and was the first death in this family of funeral directors. I took care of the arrangements, taking my instructions from Grandma Sadie (as our family called her) Evie, Ollie, and his sisters. After the service while visiting with Evie, he related to me and later to others, “I’ve been through this with so many others, but now fully realize with the passing of Dad what they have gone through.” His personal testing came after nearly 40 years in the profession, not before. nounced his retirement and was ready to sell his partnership interest. We evidently had done well enough as partners to assure his retirement, which he soon would enjoy immensely. New technology might have had a play in his retirement as the chair episode had for his father. We had a fax machine, so we didn’t have to telephone newspapers and pronounce and spell every word of an obituary, but when I suggested a copy machine and an electronic cash register, I think Evie started looking toward the door. He would come in and check on us occasionally, or have a copy of something made on our new copy machine! But, one time when I asked him to help at the funeral

In 1975 Evanson Jensen Funeral Home was relocated to 501 7th Ave. W. upon the acquisition of the Prince of Peace Church north of Lemmon the prior year. The building was located across the Cedar River, north of Lemmon. Bids were received for a hog barn, an implement shed and for a funeral home. Luckily for us we were the highest bidder and the congregation was pleased as well. The name of the Chapel area, which was their church, remains Prince of Peace Chapel. The 30’ x 75’ main structure of laminated rafters and 4” x 6” tongue in groove ceiling/roof came to town in one piece, with all the weight at the top of the structure swaying front to back. We couldn’t believe one piece of the stained glass didn’t fall out. The first service arranged from our new location was in mid-January 1975.

Senator didn’t just involve the session times, but all year around to committee and constituent meetings. I could tell this was beginning to wear on Evie and our partnership, even though I took all night calls, weekends and put in many 16 hour days. Mary Jean put in extra effort and time as well with her phone answering duties and in raising our four children. So to save my marriage, partnership and see my children grow up, I decided not to run again in 1980. This is not to say that those four years were wasted. They were very educational and productive and we met a lot of great people. Interestingly, the same furniture salesman who disappointed Dick Evanson in 1959 had this to say when I was running, “are you nuts….you’re going to lose every customer this place has!” Know-

Grandma Sadie died in April of 1985 at the age of 87. In those 14 years of widowhood she continued to be active with her flowers, church and yard, present at our family gathers, and quietly supportive of the Evanson Jensen partnership family. It was in 1979 and 1981 that we acquired the funeral homes in Mott and Elgin, ND and we were graciously welcomed into those communities. As the work load increased, Evie and I agreed that another full time funeral director be hired and Bill Logan came on board. Just to stay busier, we operated a furniture store in Elgin for a time with Jacque Bauer as manager. Then in Dec. of 1985, Evie an-

home because we were going several directions at once, he said “No, I’m going golfing.” He said “perfect retirement is doing all the things you love to do, and as little of the things you don’t want to do as possible.” Of course, he and Ollie had wintered, prior to retirement, in California and taken many other trips, as well as summers at their cabin in Spearfish Canyon. They continued to enjoy this and their grandchildren in full retirement after Dec. 31, 1985. So this takes us through the third 25 year segment of our Centennial, except for ‘86 and ’87 which I will overlap into the next edition. Doesn’t time fly when you’re 50 or older?

In 1976, I was talked into running for the State Senate by Representatives George Mortimer, Belle Fourche and Harold Millett, Reva. They also had the help of Vernon Evanson’s attorney which must have been the reason he approved and granted the time needed to campaign that summer and fall. Successful in November, I served Butte, Harding, Perkins and Corson Counties in the ’77 and ’78 sessions and was reelected to serve in the ’79 and ’80 sessions. Of course the work of a

ing he was of an opposite political persuasion I should have said, “Then grab your satchel and hit the door…as we won’t be needing anymore merchandise.” He never said anything more in his return visits, but did notice a drop in his merchandise on our showroom floors and an increase in his competitor’s lines, and business at the store kept improving. During these busy growth years, Evie put a lot of extra time into the Lemmon Economic Development Corp., helped establish a radio station in Lemmon, over-

GFP encourages producers to take steps to protect hay and stored feed supplies
PIERRE, S.D.— Even though South Dakota is still in the last stages of a hot and dry summer, Game, Fish and Parks Department officials are encouraging farmers and ranchers to begin thinking about the importance of protecting alfalfa, hay and other stored feed supplies from wintering wildlife. “With the effects of this year’s drought, we know that hay and other feed supplies will be even more valuable this coming winter,” GFP Wildlife Damage Program Administrator Keith Fisk said. “If South Dakota experiences a normal winter where we have even average accumulations of snow it will be important for producers to consider taking some proactive steps that will reduce the potential for wildlife damage.” Fisk added that many producers have reported they’ve been able to reduce or prevent wildlife damage just by giving some careful thought to where they locate their winter livestock feed. “If producers have chronic problems with wildlife damage despite their best efforts, we want to make sure they’re aware that GFP has several cost-share programs available to help protect their feed supplies,” Fisk said. Over the past 15 years, GFP has developed several wildlife damage abatement programs which provide cost-share assistance to producers. One program helps supply protective panels that can be temporarily loaned to producers to help protect feed supplies. Another program actually helps producers fund the purchase and construction of stackyards or other protective fencing measures. Because GFP’s Wildlife Damage Program is funded entirely with hunting license fees, producers are asked to sign an agreement that states they don’t charge for hunting access and they’ll agree to allow a reasonable amount of free public access for hunting. “Permanent stackyards work well for producers who have specific locations where they store hay or other feed every year,” said Fisk. “Our portable panel program has also become popular with producers over the last few years. The great thing about the panels is they allow producers some flexibility in where they place feed supplies from year-toyear.” Ensuring an adequate harvest of big game animals on an annual basis remains the best tool available to help producers reduce wildlife damage on their property. However, should producers experience wildlife damage from concentrations of deer, elk or turkeys, GFP encourages them to contact a GFP representative as soon as possible. Since 2005, GFP has worked with more than 800 individual producers to provide financial assistance to help them build permanent stackyards or purchase protective panels. On an annual basis, GFP expends more than $2.5 million to assist producers with a wide variety of programs designed to help reduce damages caused by wildlife. For more information or assistance, producers may contact their local Wildlife Damage Specialist or GFP Division of Wildlife office.

VA BHHCS to host Women Veteran’s Retreat
The VA Black Hills Health Care System (BHHCS) specialized Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Outpatient Treatment Program (PCT) will host a semiannual women Veteran’s retreat, October 19-21, 2012. The retreat will be held at the Fort Meade Campus, two miles east of Sturgis. The PCT staff takes a holistic approach to veteran’s treatment and addresses psychological, physical, social and spiritual issues related to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). The semi-annual women’s retreats were developed as part of the VA's rural health care initiative, “serving the under-served”. The retreat, beginning at noon on October 19, is for women veterans of all eras diagnosed with PTSD and female family members of male veterans diagnosed with PTSD. The weekend retreats offer a condensed psycho educational , experiential format that educates participants about the debilitating symptoms of PTSD, effects on the family, with a particular emphasis on developing healthier coping strategies and increasing one’s social support network. “The PCT Women’s Retreat in its 19th year, seeks to help participants examine some of the basic questions in their lives,” said Cathy Edler, Addiction Therapist for the PCT Program and Retreat Coordinator. “The volunteer facilitators and participants build a community of people who are willing to take time to support each other. We provide a safe place to explore issues and allow you to come up with your own answers.” The Disabled American Veterans (DAV) Charitable Trust has graciously bestowed a yearly grant for the retreat program. This funding helps to cover meals and lodging expenses for all eligible participants. The grant does not cover transportation. Please check with your local VA medical center about travel eligibility. Only new participant applications will be accepted, as seating is limited to 20 participants and is on a first-come, first-served basis. Participants must be screened and pre-register by phoning the PCT Program at 720-7449 or 1800-743-1070, extension 7449. Travel eligibility inquiries should be directed to 720-7103.
