Thune statement, Sen. McGovern
Victims of the wind… Four semis overturned into the median east of 1880 Town as a result of strong wind gusts the morning of Thursday, October 18. Deputy Rich Sylva reported a total of three semi trucks tipped over in Jones County, two in Mellette County and approximately five in Jackson County during the wind storm that started Wednesday, October 17 and lasted until late Thursday evening. Motorists were warned of the high wind advisory via Department of Transportation digital signs along Interstate 90. Those choosing to ignore the warning either had a rough ride or ended up on their sides, like the four pictured. Courtesy photo Senator John Thune issued the following statement after the passing of former Senator George McGovern: “Senator George McGovern lived a life of exemplary service. George’s legacy of service will live on at the leadership program created in his name by his beloved Dakota Wesleyan University and in the hearts of all of those who took courage and inspiration from his public life and quiet, but powerful voice in the counsels of government. Throughout his postpolitical life, George dedicated himself to the service of his fellow man in the crusade against hunger around the world. Today South Dakota mourns the loss of a war hero and a great statesman, and our history will forever reflect the impact of George McGovern. Despite our political differences, I was always proud to call Senator McGovern my friend and he will be deeply missed by those he met and those who were fortunate enough to experience his goodwill through the world. Kimberley and my prayers are with his family and friends during this difficult time.”
Exercise room reminder
Venard, Inc. now open for business
by Karlee Barnes Venard, Inc., located on the west end of Fifth Street, is open and ready for business in their new building. Venard, Inc. was a result of the sale of the HHH Truckstop that had been a cornerstone in the community since December 1, 1971 when Barb and the late Lyle Venard started the business. The HHH Truckstop was sold on March 15, 2012, and the Venard family wasted no time starting another family operated, community oriented business. Construction began in May 2012 and the business took up temporary shop in the old car wash building just east of the new building. They officially started business in the new building on Monday, October 15. The new building boasts more room as well as three stalls, a new finger lift hoist, a wash bay, plenty of storage and a new office with a lounge for socializing and waiting. In addition to the main shop, a breezeway also connects a storage shop with plenty of room for tires and the service truck as well as other miscellaneous items. David Venard said that the services Venard, Inc. will offer are for the most part the same as the services they offered in the shop at the HHH Truckstop. The main focus will be on tires and vehicle service. They are also offering Exhaust Master muffler services and will continue to change oil and wash vehicles. Venard, Inc. will also continue to operate the service truck that often makes trips to the interstate or highways to help stranded motorists get vehicles back on the road. Venard said many features in the building are still temporary until they find a home for everything. It will take time and a lot of moving equipment around and reorganizing to figure out what works best for the day to day operations of the business. With the new name and the new

Bob Miles from Wenatchee, Wash., and his son, Mike from Arizona, visited Bill and Ellen Valburg the afternoon of October 11. Bob and Bill went to country school together when Valburg’s lived southwest of White River. Joell Kerner of Winner, S.D., and Kristi Vlietstra, Will and Walker of Rapid City arrived at the Valburg ranch Friday, October 12. They, along with Bill and Cindy Valburg, attended the wedding of their niece/cousin, Katie Iwan and Matt Demaray in Pierre Saturday, October 13. Bill and Cindy were dinner guests at the ranch after church on Sunday, and Kristi and boys returned home that same afternoon. Joell stayed to help her sister, Ellen, get ready for pheasant hunters. Joell returned home Friday, October 19. The women of St. Paul’s Lutheran met briefly after church to discuss the upcoming lunch they will be serving on election day. Bill and Ellen Valburg went to Pierre Monday, October 15 for Bill’s doctor’s appointment. Bill was given the “all clear” sign from the blood clot problems he’s been having for six weeks. That evening they enjoyed supper with Dr. Phil and Peggy Hoffsten, and then the four of them attended the United States Air Force “Brass In Blue” concert at Riggs Theatre. Jeff and Kristi Vlietstra, Will and Walker arrived at the Valburg ranch Friday, October 19 for opening pheasant season. They returned home Sunday. Funeral services were held last Tuesday for Harvey Christian at the Draper auditorium with a great turnout of family and friends to pay their last respects. The Lord provided a beautiful day; I'm thinking he decided that Harvey and his family had been through enough, thus the nice day. In the absence of our Pastor Hazen, Pastor Linda Baldock of White River did a very good job with the prayer service and funeral. Linda Brost provided the music and Brett Anderson was vocalist. Following the service, we went to the Draper Cemetery

still be firsts. I've got to give Terri, Mickie and Jera'le credit for a lot of the good stuff they made. They spent lots of time in the kitchen, and many others brought food also. The club lost two of their members this past year – Frankie Rubin, 91, of Rapid City and Jim Teslow, 60. I understand the group had a moment of silence in their memory before the hunt. Several returned home on Sunday but there were still 25 who gathered at the annex Sunday evening for more good stuff. I didn't see anyone on Monday but knew the plan was to gather at a local cafe for supper. Many left for their homes on Tuesday morning. So nice to see them and so glad they have included us at their supper gatherings. As you can see by the names, it does turn into a mini Esmay reunion. Chip and Phyliss Peters visited at Nelva and Janet Louders after supper Saturday evening and even played a game of cards. Nelva and Janet Louder spent Friday in Pierre. In the afternoon they had coffee and visits with Lillian Severyn, Mona Sharp, Ken Halligan, Joyce Nielsen and several others at Parkwood. Following church Sunday Ray and Janice Pike, Lila Mae Christian and daughter Pat, Rosa Lee Styles, Nelva and Janet Louder had dinner together at a local cafe. Later in the day Pat returned to her Rapid City home. Kathy and hubby Robert and Anita and hubby Dennis of Gordon, Neb., daughters of former Jones County residents, the late Robert and June Steffins, visited Eldon and Esther Magnuson recently. They had supper together at a local cafe. There was a good turnout of family and friends Saturday for the open house held to help Tom Lebeda celebrate his 80th birthday at the senior center in Murdo. Rosa Lee Styles and Margie Esmay were among the many on hand to help him celebrate. Happy 80th, Tom. Ronold and Velma Scott received the good news Monday morning of the arrival of another granddaughter. Dena Renae Scott arrived at 11:25 a.m. Monday, October 22, weighing in at 11 pounds, five and a half ounces, 221/2 inches long, to Stewart and Renae Scott of Ames, Iowa. Welcoming her home are sisters Augusta and Clara and brother Brandt. Congratulations to all. Kris Bradley spent Sunday at Margaret and Greg Rankins. They had dinner together at a local cafe. Dorothy and Brad Louder visited Dwight in Kadoka on Sunday morning. Chad and Heather Whitney and boys worked cattle Saturday at the Magnuson place. Eldon helped and I think maybe Esther entertained the youngest boy, Bodie. Helen Louder accompanied Ted and Bev Nies to the wedding Friday evening of Kayla Petersen and Greg Barringer held at the Catholic church in Ft. Pierre. A reception/supper/dance was held at a Ft. Pierre convention center following the service. Kayla is the daughter of Mary and Owen Petersen of Vivian. Congrats to the newlyweds. Sonny Magnuson and Dave Davis of Rapid City visited and hunted at the farm of Eldon and Esther Magnuson on Saturday and Sunday. The Ray and Shirley Vik family hunters are here for pheasant hunting. They include; Kenny from Hettinger, N.D.; Brian of Barnesville, Minn.; Doug of Huron and grandson Dean and Kristina Vik of Rapid City. Some are staying at brother Steve's. Other weekend visitors were Dave and Kathy Fuoss, LyRanda Fuoss, Dylan and Ryan. Talked to Melva Vik today – she was in Ft. Meade with Roger. She updated me on his visitors. Jerry and Mickie Esmay visited him Friday morning and that evening Jerry's daughter, Jera'le and Bob Smith, visited. Daughter Patti was there to visit on Sunday. Brian Vik and son Dean visited Monday; and Patti and Wade there to visit on Tuesday. With all the visitors, it should brighten his days. Sunday evening following the hunters feed, Nelva and Janet Louder played cards at Eldon and Esther Magnusons. Chip and Phyliss Peters were among the many at the celebration of 40 years of marriage of Roger and Wanda Larson held at the Okaton church Sunday afternoon. Happy 40th, Roger and Wanda. Wishing you many, many more. This was really a weekend of birthday and open houses. Former Draperite Clayton McLaughlin of Mitchell celebrated his 80th on Saturday. Happy birthday, Clayton. I know he will see this as he takes the Murdo Coyote. Also, on Sunday, our sheriff, John Weber and wife Brenda celebrated their 50th birthdays at an open house hosted by daughters Krystal and Ashley and son Wyatt. Birthday cake was enjoyed by several. I also know the day before was their anniversary. Now back to the party, Nelva and Janet Louder attended. John's mom, Grace Weber, and Janet had a good visit about the "olden" days, as they were neighbors southeast of Draper when Janet was a young Hulce girl. Don't worry Grace, Janet is not writing what you talked about. Others to attend the open house were parents Herb and Arlene Pitan, Chip and Phyliss Peters, and other relatives and friends. Happy anniversary and happy birthdays, John and Brenda. Allan and Susan Moreland and grandkids Paige and Dawson went to Rapid City Friday evening where they picked up three more grandkids and then went to Spearfish to watch another grandson, J.C., play his last football game. Afterwards they ate supper and then stayed overnight in St. Onge at a relatives with their five grandkids. They took three grandsons back to Rapid City. On Sunday they stopped in at the open house for brother John and Brenda's birthday party. It was a fun weekend. I talked to Joyce Hammond tonight; son Steve underwent cancer surgery in Dallas, Texas, on Friday. All went okay, but he is still in a lot of pain. She has been there with him. Son Dan lives in Aubry; he brought her home to Steve's house in Sanger to rest up. She will return to the hospital again soon. Our prayers are with him and her – wishing Steve a speedy recovery.

where the Legion held military rites. Nelva Louder presented Lila Mae with the United States flag in honor of Harvey's service to our country, a series of three rifle shots were fired, followed with bugler Kalli Hespe playing taps. The family sent their love with the release of many, many balloons which was a beautiful and moving sight. Back to the auditorium for the noon meal and a time of fellowship. Our sympathies to the family. Some of the former Draperites I saw back for the funeral were: Don and Elaine Miller of Rapid City; Eleanor Miller and Joyce Nielsen of Pierre; Delores Volmer of Presho plus lots of former Draper relatives, and I know I'm not remembering all but these do take the Coyote. The Draper Pheasant Club members arrived, some Friday and some Saturday, in time for the "big hunt." The weather was beautiful. Day one was successful and I understand no catastrophes, although I doubt the pheasants would agree! Day two it sounded like the pheasants smarted up and hid (not all of them though). Saturday evening a bounteous meal was held at the Draper auditorium annex with lots of food brought by the hunters. Those in attendance were hunters and nonhunters but all like to eat! Coming from Montana were: Mickie and Jerry Esmay; Keith Esmay; Jera'le and Bob Smith and daughters Angie and Jessie Smith; Harry and Genny Potton; Brad, Bill and Chandler Paulson. Also there were: Jay Esmay and sons Donald and Brink of Minnesota; Charlie Foss of Texas; Gary Fredericksen of Kadoka; Dean Rubin of the hills area; Larry Styles of Hill City; and locals Dean, Terri and Tana Volmer; Donald Volmer; Rosa Lee and David Styles; Margie Boyle; Jon Esmay; Helen Louder; Chip and Phyliss Peters; and Nelva and Janet Louder. Saturday evening I tried their bear ham, and by bear, I don't mean "undressed" ham! This came from a brown bear. It was a first for me. Also another first was elk brats - so, see, no matter how old you get there can

by Karlee Barnes The second annual Jones County Ambulance breakfast feed was a success, as it brought in approximately $6,300. The Jones County EMTs served omelets, pancakes, breakfast potatoes, sausage and plenty of refreshments to locals and hunters in the area for opening pheasant season alike. Tammy Van Dam reported that a couple from Oregon even stopped. They were former EMTs and didn’t stay for breakfast, but were so impressed that they left a generous donation in support of the ambulance crew. Van Dam said that the weekend was very successful.

Jackie went to Riggs High to see Cassidy perform in an oral interp contest that was very impressive. The Pierre Team was amazing! Julia Broecher had visitors, Carrol and Ruthie Cash, Belle Fourche, who were here for Tom Lebeda's open house on Saturday. Tom Lebeda celebrated his 80th birthday at an open house at the Murdo Senior Center. Many out of town family members as well as many friends from near and far came to wish him well. It was a very special day. We had some especially windy days the first of this week that played havoc with trucks on the interstate as well as fences, building and roofs all over the state.

The football game with New Underwood was postponed until Friday so the players could keep their feet on the ground while playing. It was a close game that ended in a loss for the Coyotes. John Sichmeller is in the Avera McKennan hospital in Sioux Falls. Helen McMillan and Cheryl McMillan went to Okaton on Sunday to Wanda and Roger Larson’s anniversary open house. Congratulations to Wanda and Roger! Helen commented on the overwhelming turnout at the Ambulance fundraising breakfast breakfast held at the ambulance building on Saturday and Sunday mornings, opening pheasant hunting weekend. The annual wild game feed at the sportmans building was also well attended. Inez and Jo Hayes of Sioux Falls, Muriel Nelson of Brookings and Jo Ann Selken of Humboldt spent the weekend of October 1214 at Yankton at the State Red Hat Convention with 250 Red Hatters there from 14 states. Entertainment if interested was going on tours, shopping, scavenger hunt, bingo and bonco. Saturday night there was dancing with the band “Something New” from Salem. The ladies returned home Sunday after the farewell breakfast. All the Red Hat ladies reported having a good time and are already waiting for next year’s convention.
mated 300 supporters each day, the local EMTs made 370 omelets. The new ambulance arrived just in time for the feed and was displayed in front of the ambulance building for public viewing. Van Dam said, “We had a lot of dedicated EMTs that gave up their weekend to work the benefit breakfast and we couldn’t have done it without everyone’s help! We appreciated all the support and help that everyone in the community gave us!” The Jones County EMS is still looking for EMTs and has set a training date for February 1, 2013. Anybody interested should contact an EMT, leave a message at the ambulance shed at 669-3125 or call Tammy Van Dam at 530-7553.

Lee Beckwith, 85, Rapid City passed away on Tuesday, October 16, 2012 at the Hospice of the Hills House in Rapid City. Lee was born on January 8, 1927 in Pierre, S.D. to George and Esther (Harding) Beckwith. He spent his early years in Midland, moving to Murdo in 1933. Lee graduated from Murdo High School in 1945 and immediately entered the US Army. He was proud to be a World War II veteran. Upon his discharge, he became a partner in his father’s shoe and
saddle repair shop. During the next three years, he and his father made approximately 150 Beckwith Saddles. In 1950, Lee purchased the shop at his father’s death, and operated the shop at three different locations on the Main Street of Murdo, expanding the business with each move. Lee purchased the Murdo Gamble store in 1959, and this store became the Lee’s Department Store and then added Hardware Hank around 1967. Lee married Mary Thatcher on January 20, 1952. They were blessed with three children. They owned and operated the family business until they retired in 1986 and moved to Rapid City. They spent 24 winters in the Mesa, Arizona area. Lee and Mary recently celebrated their 60th anniversary and Lee’s 85th birthday with many friends and family. Lee enjoyed a variety of hobbies during his life including hunting, fishing, rock collecting, gardening, bridge, silversmithing, woodworking, and managing the family assets. Survivors include his wife, Mary, Rapid City; children, Gary (Ruth) Beckwith, Rapid City, Gene (Patricia) Beckwith, Reliance, SD, Linda (Quentin)

Gleanings from the Prairie
What’s happening in our world? As others have noted, it seems to be falling apart. Men/women, boys/girls are killing themselves at an alarmingly fast pace. If it isn’t the death associated with war, it comes from other scenes. Murders in theaters, malls, grocery stores, convenience stores, at ball games, in hospitals, at schools (Jr. Hi, Sr. Hi, College), and even in homes. Mankind just can’t seem to “get along” anymore. An anonymous author has written: “The very helplessness of the world today is in itself a repudiation of that self-sufficient and self-confident view of life that the world in its progressive development has outgrown the need of Christ. It is following Christ that gives the world what it most needs --- a standard of right living, a cause to maintain and defend, a Leader to follow, and a law to obey.” Yes, that pretty well sums it up. Man has turned against the “One Man” Who came into the world to give answers to the questions of life, solutions to the problems of life, and leadership to the waywardness of life, and a law to govern life. Rejection of the only “cure” will mean that the answers, solutions, leadership and law will never be forthcoming. It would truly be nice to live in a “perfect” world! Our parents enjoyed the opportunity, but they
It’s Election Time

squandered the blessings and their children have been fighting ever since. James wrote to the early believers, “From where come wars and fightings among you? Come they not here, even of your lusts that war in your members? You lust, and have not; you kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain; you fight and war, yet you have not, because you ask not” (James 4:1-2). JESUS said, “Come unto ME.” Yet, when we turn from HIM instead of turning to HIM, our only path is that on which our world is traveling --destruction and death. Someone else has well said, “Christ is the only transforming power there is and we strive in vain without Him whether we are building a life or a country.” As we approach this election here in America, we must remember that neither candidate or Party has the answers, solutions, leadership or law that we as Americans, or the world, need. At best they will only postpone the inevitable. Oh that the “Prince of Peace” would return! The LORD and Savior of mankind, JESUS of Nazareth, of Whom, the Apostle Peter said so many years ago: “neither is there salvation in any other; for there is no other Name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved” (Acts 4:12). Turn to the One Who is the solution.

New Rainfall Insurance For 2013 Pasture & Hayland
The Pasture, Rangeland & Forage – Rainfall Index (PRF-RI) is based on NOAA data and uses an approximate 12x12 mile grid. Producers must select at least two, two-month time periods in which precipitation is important for the growth and production of forage/pasture. These time periods are called index intervals. Insurance payments to the producer suffering a loss are calculated based on the deviation from normal precipitation with the grid and index intervals selected. This insurance coverage is for a single peril – lack of precipitation.
Sales close date is November 15, 2012

Two Minutes With the Bible
It’s All In the Bible by Pastor Cornelius R. Stam
We couldn’t help hearing it! This woman had a voice that could be heard at considerable distance and we distinctly heard her say: “I doped it all out from the Bible.” “Well, at least somebody’s interested in the Bible,” we said to each other. But as she prattled on it turned out that she had used the records in an old family Bible to establish her claim to part of an estate. These records, introduced in court, had won the case for her. There was, after all, no indication that she was interested in the Bible — only in those pages between the Old and New Testaments which, in some editions of the Bible, are kept for family records. Actually she was no different from the masses about us who go about from day to day interested only in the things of this life and ignoring almost completely the things that really matter: God, heaven, hell and their own eternal destiny. If these people only knew what treasures are to be found in the Bible! Among these are “riches of mercy” (Eph. 2:4), “riches of grace” (Eph. 1:7), “riches of glory” (Phil. 4:19), “riches of wisdom and knowledge” (Rom. 11:33), “the riches of the full assurance of understanding” (Col. 2:2), “the unsearchable riches of Christ” (Eph. 3:8). And the best part of it is that anyone may have these riches simply for the asking: “For there is no difference… for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon Him, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Rom. 10:12,13).

has put together an impressive resume in a short amount of time and finally is getting his due. The colorful bay stocking legged stud horse is hyper and athletic. He won Bareback and Saddle Bronc of the Badland Circuit Finals in 2011, the first horse to win both awards in the same year. He also won Badland Circuit Saddle Bronc Horse of the year in 2011 and 2012. He has been selected to the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo in 2010 and 2011, being voted as a Top Ten Saddle Bronc at the NFR in both of those years. “He’s not even reached his prime and he made the top 10 vote the last two years at the NFR,” stock contractor Steve Sutton said. “He’s just kept getting better all the time, and then this year we ventured out to a few more places that had short gos and he drew good cowboys and they all did well on him.” Chuckulator is a product of Sutton Rodeos “Born to Buck” program in which they raise 98 percent of the bucking horses they use. His Sire Justin Boots, Dam Midnight Star and Dam’s Sire Mr. T all were all selected to compete in the National Finals Rodeo. Other Sutton Rodeo stock honored by the PRCA includes 1961 Bull of the NFR in Dallas, Baldy owned by Korkow/Sutton and Reserve Bareback of the NFR, Snake River both owned by Sutton; 1964 Reserve Bareback of the NFR Yellow Jacket in Los Angeles; 1979 Saddle Bronc of the Year, Deep Water; 1985 Bareback Horse of the Year, Tombstone. The awards were voted on by the top 20 cowboys in the world standings in each event as of September 18, 2012.

Stockgrowers to host supper in Kadoka
The South Dakota Stockgrowers Association invites all area producers for supper and a meeting on Thursday, October 25 beginning at 6:30 p.m. at Club 27 in Kadoka. Bill Bullard, CEO of R-CALF USA, will be the featured speaker and will share information regarding R-CALF's recent lawsuit defending Country of Origin Labeling from the World Trade Organization. The lawsuit, filed by R-CALF USA and the USA Made Foundation, stems from the complaints of Mexico and Canada that the United States' Country of Origin Labeling laws discriminate against their products. The World Trade Organization agreed with those countries and is forcing the United States and USDA to com-
ply with their international courts. The lawsuit by R-CALF and supported by SD Stockgrowers Association attempts to protect our sovereignty and the U.S. Country of Origin Labeling laws in support of United States producers and consumers. Also of interest to producers will be a brief update on proposed changes to South Dakota Brand laws. Stockgrowers staff and board members will also answer any questions that members have regarding other topics that Stockgrowers are covering. For more information contact Stockgrowers Executive Director Silvia Christen at 605-342-0429 or call Stockgrowers Vice-President Bob Fortune at 605-344-2200.

Habitat conditions key to South Dakota pheasant hunt
Many hunters will flock to South Dakota fields on Saturday for the traditional opening of the annual pheasant hunting season with optimism. Reasons for this optimism are first, the mid-summer pheasant count estimated the statewide pheasant population to be up 18 percent from last year and second, South Dakota offers a wealth of public hunting opportunities. There are more than 1.2 million acres of Walk-In Areas; 294,000 acres of state-owned Game Production Areas; and 150,000 acres of federal Waterfowl Production Areas available to hunters in the state. In addition, the Game, Fish and Parks Department has expanded its cooperative efforts with private landowners and the US Department of Agriculture to provide wildlife habitat and public hunting opportunities on nearly 70,000 acres in the James River valley that are enrolled in the Conservation Reserve Enhancement Program. “The number of birds in different areas of the state is closely linked to the quantity and quality of habitat found in a local area” said Tom Kirschenmann, GFP chief of wildlife and habitat programs. “The effects of this year’s drought has impacted both cropland and grassland habitat” he said. “In much of the state, grassy vegetation that pheasants rely upon is less abundant and less dense than last year.”
Murdo Coyote • October 25, 2012 •
Drought also had a direct impact on farmers and ranchers who rely on the land to make a living. To help mitigate a shortage of livestock forage, producers were allowed to cut hay and graze livestock on many acres in the Conservation Reserve Program. “Many of the Walk-in Areas that GFP leases from private landowners for public hunting access are part of working farms and ranches,” Kirschenmann said. “Some of the CRP acres that are part of Walk-in Areas were cut for hay or grazed. While haying and grazing allowances provided vital assistance to stressed agricultural producers, it will mean less available cover for hunting on some areas.” On the flip side, there is a benefit from the dry conditions that persist across most of the state: With crop harvesting nearing 90 percent complete, there are fewer places for wily roosters to hide. “When habitat is diminished, pheasants congregate in places with cover where they feel secure,” Kirschenmann said,“Unharvested crops and the remaining idle areas of standing cover are likely to provide some very good hunting opportunities.” Hunters will find information on public hunting opportunities in South Dakota on the GFP website at http://www.gfp.sd.gov/hunting/ areas/default.aspx.
Hunters warned of fire danger
South Dakota hunters should be mindful that fire danger persists across the state, and safety measures need to be taken to help prevent wildfires this opening weekend of the pheasant season. “We have had a particularly dry year in our state, and hunters will find high fire danger conditions just about anywhere they go,” said Emmett Keyser, assistant director for the Game, Fish and Parks Wildlife Division. Keyser said there are several steps hunters should take to help prevent wild fires. “Park your vehicle in a safe spot that is clear of any vegetation and then walk,” Keyser said. “Cover can be tall and tinder-dry, capable of igniting from the heat of the undercarriage of a vehicle. Park your vehicle in a safe spot, and exercise extreme caution wherever you might drive.” Besides normal hunting equipment, hunters should include some basic fire prevention equipment: an extra container of water, fire extinguisher, and fire suppression equipment, such as a shovel or flappers. Hunters should also report fires. “Some of our best fire detection comes from all our hunters in the field,” Keyser said. “With all those eyes on the horizon, it is very likely a potential fire can be detected and dealt with before it can progress. Hunters should have their cell phones handy and immediately contact local emergency services or 9-1-1 to report a fire.” Keyser noted that South Dakota has a very good record of fire safety during hunting seasons. “The key to fire safety is awareness,” he said. “Hunters need to use common sense and be aware of the potential for wildfires no matter what the conditions. A responsible person’s actions can make a huge difference in protecting both property and wildlife resources.”

If you like wind, you should have been happy as a clam this last week since we had an excess of highly mobile air for two whole days. If you tried to walk into it, you had to bend forward and struggle along. If you went with it, you had to lean back so as not to be hurried along faster than you wanted to go. The weathermen said something about the cause being a huge cold front that was in a big hurry to head south. Yes, well, whatever the cause, we nearly got blown away. On one of those wild days, we were scheduled to drive west close to a hundred miles so son Chance could consult a couple of doctors. We were planning to take wife Corinne’s car, but that vehicle doesn’t do well in strong wind. It somehow feels insecure as if you are about to become airborne. This is fine with an airplane but not so good with a car. In any event, we called and cancelled our appointments and rescheduled them for what we hope are quieter days. Other people, however, did not cancel their travel plans although they should have. One picture on the internet showed four trucks overturned in the ditch within a space of less than a mile. There must have been some kind of wind-tunnel effect about there to tip so many high-profile vehicles. I would bet that driving a huge broad-sided motor home would have made for a scary journey indeed. Neither was our mailman excited about travel on those days. His pickup consumed lots more gas than usual in trying to fight its way through, and occasionally the road was badly obscured due to blowing dirt. He was not exactly a happy camper. Naturally, anything light that wasn’t tied down became airborne. That might include dog dishes, lawn furniture, shingles, and any loose paper or plastic. The paper and plastic did fancy dances in the air with swirling, bobbing, and so on. Birds, for the most part, were content to stay on the ground. The few I saw flying were headed south at great speed and were being taken to places they probably didn’t really plan to go. Even the electricity was uneven or out due to poles blowing over or wires coming loose. I chuckled quite a bit at a notice a friend posted on Facebook. She was alerting her east-river friends that a feed sack with a scoop in it and her cap and jacket were headed their way. She would like them back if possible. Then she said to never mind. She was good. Stuff was blowing in from Wyoming and Montana, and she would just catch that and use it instead. For most of us, though, we just hunkered down and waited for it to get over as we usually do when the weather is vile. We did have to tightly hold on to the screen door when going through it to avoid having the wind catch it, break it, tear it off, or damage the hinges. Car doors were similar. The hardest part to deal with, I think, was the nervous response it promotes in most of us. All the

whistling, clanking, and banging just make a person unsettled somehow. It’s hard to concentrate on anything. Another worry is prairie fires. We have lived through two very scary wind-blown fires that had our nerves extremely on edge. One was many years ago and was started by lightning on our east border. It went close to twenty miles farther east before being controlled. Another started over south and blew along our western border for many miles. It didn’t jump across the river to our river place, but it was a near thing. Luckily, neither fire did a lot of damage to us—mostly just a corner of a pasture or a thin strip--but the emotional toll was considerable. We don’t want any repetitions. After the winds had subsided somewhat, I mentioned to wife Corinne that it obviously was a wimpy cold front after all since it didn’t really drop the actual temperatures all that much. It didn’t even freeze overnight. Corinne told me to hush up or it might hear me and start up all over again. That seemed a bit unlikely, but I took her advice and kept my peace. Lord knows we don’t need another wind like that anytime soon. Fortunately, today was a beautiful fall day with pleasant temps and hardly any wind at all. Mother Nature was obviously trying to atone for what she’d just put us through. For those of you who like a lot of wind, you were flat out of luck. The rest of us, though, were happy as clams.

bins at Dakota Mill & Grain barely hung on throughout the storm. Gov. Dennis Daugaard has extended an Executive Order to haul over-width baled livestock feed until December 21, 2012, in South Dakota. The Executive Order states that, upon receipt of a permit, permission is granted to move overwidth baled livestock feed not exceeding 12-feet-wide or 15-feethigh for two hours after sunset and two hours before sunrise. The order allows movement of over-

width baled livestock feed until cessation of the drought emergency, or no later than December 21. Over-width vehicles must be equipped with flashing or rotating white or amber warning lights on each side of the load’s widest extremity. The warning lights must be clearly visible to motorists approaching from the front and rear. Movement under the Executive Order is valid only for baled livestock feed. “This year’s persistent drought conditions have left livestock producers across South Dakota with inadequate feed supplies,” said South Dakota Secretary of Agriculture Walt Bones. “Increasing hauling height and width restrictions for baled hay will allow producers to move feed in a more efficient manner.” The normal size restriction on South Dakota highway loads is 14feet, 3-inches high and 8-feet, 6inches wide. Although height and width restrictions for baled livestock feed have been temporarily increased by Executive Order, several highways in the state have width and height restrictions in place because of construction or permanent structures that cannot accommodate such large loads. Truckers are encouraged to check their routes ahead of time for those restrictions. For information on permits, contact a South Dakota port of entry or call 800-637-3255. Agriculture is South Dakota's No. 1 industry, generating nearly $21 billion in annual economic activity and employing more than 80,000 South Dakotans. The South Dakota Department of Agriculture's mission is to promote, protect, preserve and improve this industry for today and tomorrow. us online at Visit http://sdda.sd.gov or follow us on Facebook and Twitter.

students from other colleges and universities in the region, and has far reaching benefits for the public. If you are going to be in Brookings and have some flexibility in your schedule, the gardens are well worth whatever amount of time you have to visit. The story and information about McCrory Gardens is far too extensive to cover here, but much can be learned by visiting the official website at: www. sdstate.edu/ps/mccrory/, or the secondary website at: www.mccrorygardens.com. 11/27-28/2012 – Ag Horizons Conference, Pierre, SD 12/11/2012 – Soil Health Info DayDavison County Extension Complex, Mitchell, SD CALENDAR
by Karlee Barnes The 2012 Murdo Chamber of Commerce annual meeting had unusual results as two Community Volunteer nominees were tied in number of votes. Brett Anderson and Jim Newbold were both awarded 2012 Community Volunteers of the year and Jewell Bork received the award for 2012 Chamber Member Volunteer of the year. The volunteers of the year are selected by Murdo Area Chamber of Commerce members each year. The Merriam-Webster’s dictionary definition of a volunteer is, “a person who voluntarily undertakes or expresses a willingness to undertake a service; one who renders a service or takes part in a transaction while having no legal concern or interest.” Those nominated take time out of their personal lives to help with community events that do not necessarily benefit them personally. Margie Peters was invited to be the speaker for the meeting. Earlier in the year, the Chamber nominated her for the Spirit of Dakota Award. Peters was one of 15 outstanding women nominated by their communities to be honored at the Spirit of Dakota’s 26th Anniversary Celebration and Award Banquet. The award is given to a woman who has demonstrated vision, courage and strength of character in the development of her family, community and/or state. Although Peters did not win the main award, it was still an honor for her to have been nominated. Along with nominating Peters, the chamber also paid for tickets for two chamber members, Sam and Marilyn Seymour, as well as for three people of Peters’s choice. She brought with her Amber Sylva, Deb Reed and Carmen Miller.

Peters spoke about attending the Spirit of Dakota banquet and gave insights about the other nominees and their stories. Those attending the meeting enjoyed a meal provided by the Murdo Nutrition Program. Approximately 30 community members were in attendance. Chamber Bucks door prizes were provided by the chamber and awarded during the meeting. Chamber president Barb Hockenbary spoke about the many projects that the chamber has been involved in over the past year. Terry Van Dam was elected to sit on the Murdo Chamber of Commerce executive board to replace Lori Waldron, whose two year term was up. Other executive board members include president, Barb Hockenbary, Kevin Moore, Sherry Philips and Nadine Hatheway. The volunteers of the year were then announced and received their awards.
To ensure a new generation of South Dakota agriculture producers is ready to take on the challenges of operating their business in today's agriculture industry, SDSU Extension will soon be holding the second year of Ag CEO workshops. Growing Ag CEOs is a program focused on connecting new producers with seasoned and successful producers, agriculture leaders and the knowledge and research base found within the University system. As one producer put it, “in college, the focus was on understanding the concepts. With Ag CEO, the focus is how those concepts apply to me and my operation.” Ag CEO is a four-part series, including a meal at each meeting, at a cost of $250 for up to two people per operation. A fifth meeting is available at each site for an additional $100, which will complete the requirements for FSA borrower training. Course dates for the first meetings in western South Dakota include Winner – January 9; Eagle Butte – January 9; and Belle Fourche – February 3. You will be able to register online in the near future at http://igrow.org/. If you have questions, contact the Rapid City Regional Extension Center at 605-394-1722 or your Regional Extension Center. While in Brookings for SDSU Extension Annual Conference last week, a little extra time allowed for a quick stop at the new McCrory Gardens Education and Visitor Center. Some readers may have had the opportunity to attend the dedication and grand opening of the new facility on Thursday, July 26, 2012, and/or visited it on another occasion, and could attest to how impressive it is. McCrory Gardens was established in 1966, only 2 years after South Dakota State College became South Dakota State University. The 25 acres of formal display and evaluation gardens, which merge into the 45 acres of the South Dakota Arboretum and woody plant evaluation plots was named after and dedicated to Samuel McCrory, a longtime South Dakota State faculty member. McCrory Gardens is highly valued as an active, living classroom and laboratory for SDSU, primary and secondary school children and MCCRORY GARDENS
