The United States Attorney for
the District of South Dakota, Bren-
dan V. Johnson, announced that
Black Hills Tree Farm (BHTF) and
Western Hills Tree Farm (WHTF),
both of Philip, jointly paid $170,000
to settle allegations that they de-
frauded the United States Depart-
ment of Agriculture crop insurance
The claim was brought under the
federal False Claims Act and al-
leged that between September 1,
2005, and November 15, 2006,
BHTF and WHTF engaged in a
scheme to sell hail damaged trees
for which BHTF already received
crop insurance payments. BHTF
was obligated to return all monies
received from the sale of those
trees to the crop insurance pro-
gram. Instead, BHTF used WHTF
as a third party to accomplish the
sale and conceal from the USDA
the true sale price of the trees.
The crop insurance program is
of vital importance to our farmers
and ranchers, and my office will
continue our efforts to vigorously
protect the integrity of the pro-
gram, said Johnson.
According to the settlement
agreement, BHTF and WHTF deny
the allegations, but settled the case
without admitting liability to avoid
the delay, uncertainty, inconven-
ience and expense of protracted lit-
The Federal Crop Insurance
Program is a central component of
our nations farm safety net, and
when one farmer takes advantage
of that system, all farmers are
hurt. To preserve the safety net for
honest, hard-working farmers, the
Risk Management Agency actively
works to decrease fraud, waste and
abuse in the Federal Crop Insur-
ance Program, said Brandon
Willis, acting administrator of
USDAs Risk Management Agency,
which manages the Federal Crop
Insurance Program.
The investigation was conducted
by the USDA, Office of Inspector
General. The United States was
represented by Assistant United
States Attorney Robert Gusinsky.

The Haakon County Board of
Commissioners held their annual
reorganization meeting January 8
to start off the year 2013.
The board, after reviewing meet-
ing minutes from the December 26,
2012 meeting, struck an entire
paragraph from Auditor Pat Free-
mans meeting minutes because
they were incorrect.
The paragraph dealt with the
courthouse building budget fund
and the courthouse building cash
account. Freeman had incorrectly
stated that a motion had been
made and approved to transfer
nearly $3,000 into the building
fund. That did not happen, said
Commissioner Nick Konst.
The paragraph also stated that
both funds would have a zero bal-
ance. Konst noted that the cash
fund would have funds remaining
in it to carry over to 2013.
As for the supplement to the
courthouse building budget, the
board, per States Attorney Gay
Tollefsons direction, brought up for
reconsideration their motion from
December 26 to supplement the
courthouse building budget by
$26,441.84. They then revoted on
the motion, which was then de-
feated. This leaves that budget in
the negative for 2012.
The board then approved the De-
cember 26 meeting minutes with
the correction. They had also ap-
proved the December 4 meeting
The board approved a letter to
Governor Dennis Daugaard in re-
gards to the fact that the animal
damage control and wildlife dam-
age management will not be in-
cluded in the governors invest- iga-
tion on Game Fish and Parks poli-
cies and procedures. The letter out-
lines data that shows that the dol-
lar amount of losses increased as
GF&P reduced the predator and
nuisance animal control activities.
Butler Machinery representative
Alex Kulesza reviewed options for
trade-ins, buy backs, or sales of the
five existing motor graders owned
by the county. The board will re-
view the material and make a deci-
sion at a future meeting. They ex-
pect to purchase two to three new
graders and surplus the same
Tabled were the approval of the
employee handbook and an ordi-
nance for on-sale Sunday liquor li-
cense. They reviewed reports from
the auditor, treasurer, veteran
service officer and sheriff.
Steve Clements was elected to
the chairmans seat and Tom Rad-
way will be the vice chairman. Rad-
way was sworn in following Rita
OConnells official resignation.
Named to various boards were
Konst to the weed board, Radway
to the library board, Gary Snook
will sit on the Central South
Dakota Enhancement board,
Clements to the Extension board
and Ed Briggs to the fair board.
The board approved all the vari-
ous items needed for the reorgani-
zation. The only change was the
gravel crushing royalty was in-
creased from 70 cents to 75 cents
per ton.
The next regular meeting for the
commission is set for Tuesday, Feb-
ruary 5 at 1:00 p.m.
Commission reorganizes for 2013
The Rivers, Trails and Conserva-
tion Assistance branch of the Na-
tional Park Service has entered
into a partnership with the com-
munity of Philip to assist with a
community trails project.
A community input meeting is
scheduled for 7:00 p.m., Thursday,
January 24, at the meeting room of
The Steakhouse in Philip. The
RTCA will be presenting a prelim-
inary Philip Trails plan, with a re-
quest for feedback from individuals
and organizations.
The goal of the partnership is to
define a comprehensive plan to de-
velop local trails, based on the com-
munitys goals and priorities. The
RTCA will assist with planning
and organizing, moderating meet-
ings and finding development and
funding sources. Trails can make
communities more attractive by
providing outdoor exercise and
recreation, safe alternative routes,
natural resource preservation,
links to historical points of interest
and more.
Trisha Larson is one of the main
contacts in Philip for this project.
She and other organizers are re-
questing input from community
members. Please show your sup-
port and join us for the meeting.
Kenny Points, with the National
Park Service, is looking for any
good summer photos of Philip for
the Philip trails project plan.
Would you have anything they
could use from festivals, the swim-
ming pool, parks, or others?

The Haakon School District
Board of Education began its Mon-
day, January 14, meeting with a
presentation of a free Student As-
sistance Program offered by
After working in education
around the country, I was appalled
at what the Masons were doing
mucking around in education,
began George Bauder. He is now a
driving force in South Dakota for
the program, he said, Because,
frankly, the program works, he
said. He explained that it works for
students and teachers, as well as
for parents and entire school staff.
The three-day course instructs
attendees on ways to recognize
children at risk of not only drugs
and alcohol, but also bullying, de-
pression, academics, suicide and
other influences that can hinder
their growth and learning. The free
course is offered to teams of five
people from elementary, junior
high and high school settings.
The only aspects of the course
that are not free to the school dis-
trict are transportation and the
hiring of substitutes while the
team is away from their jobs. Con-
tinuing education credits are avail-
able for instructors. Attendees are
to help the rest of the staff work in
unison in recognizing at risk stu-
dents and situations.
After the presentation, board
member Mark Nelson acknowl-
edged that bus drivers and coaches
would be very important parts of
the team, because they see the stu-
dents when the students arent in
class. Nelson also noted that there
is an entire chapter in the sample
workbook on getting parents in-
volved. Bauder explained that
every teacher has to know how to
have a meaningful conference with
parents. Teachers have been
trained in this, but bus drivers,
food service people, aides and oth-
ers havent. Parents can shut them
off like a television set. Approxi-
mately 10 years ago, the school dis-
trict took advantage of the pro-
gram, and will consider it again.
In other business, the board ap-
proved personnel action in officially
designating Dana Kerns as the jun-
ior high boys basketball coach.
The next school election will,
again, be in conjunction with the
city election. The district provides
the voting site, while both entities
share election costs.
The second semester school to
work sites have been announced.
Five seniors will be experiencing
hands-on learning, one each at the
First National Bank in Philip,
Cabin Fever Floral, Hansens Hide
and Fur, Shar and Amys Childcare
and an elementary classroom.
The family of one student who
attended classes during the first se-
mester has requested for that stu-
dent to be home schooled the sec-
ond semester.
School district wages for the
month of December totaled $1,440
for an equivelent of 21 days of sub-
stitutes. For hourly wages, a total
of more than $18,883 was required
for an equivelent of 1,710.92 hours.
In Mike Baers secondary princi-
pals report, nine out of 22 students
have tested out of the guided study
hall program. The junior high/mid-
dle school academic olympics held
in Pierre went well, with Baer stat-
ing that it was good experience for
the six kids who represented
Philip. Eighth grade computer
class is still being held, with

In his superintendents report,
Keven Morehart said that the Deep
Creek Christmas program was
fantastic. You couldnt get any
more people in that building. He
thought that having the local pre-
schoolers participate in the pro-
gram was neat.
The wrestling tournament that
was called off because of the recent
snowstorm will be held in Wall,

Philip, a one-third partner of the
continuing Stronger Economies To-
gether project, hosted the Wednes-
day, January 9, multi-community
The first meeting, in December,
was held in Kadoka. The third
meeting, in February, will be held
in Wall. Attendees are still con-
tributing toward a growing kitty of
possible names for this specific
SET region. Made up of Haakon
County, Jackson County and the
eastern portion of Pennington
County, the economic partnership
could vote to be called the Bad-
lands/ Bad River Region, Western
Plains Region, Central Plains Con-
nection, Old West Region or some
other name that was in the sugges-
tion jar.
This two-year federal program is
currently in its third round. The
two-year programs first year is the
creation of an economic plan for a
given region. The second year is for
the fun work of putting that plan
into action.
After a supper social provided by
the Philip Chamber of Commerce,
the attendees of this session fo-
cused on three main topics. The
first point discussed was the cur-
rent demographics of this region,
not only what they look like today
but what they are projected to look
like in the future. It was stressed
by speaker Dr. David Olson, com-
munity development program di-
rector, and video-taped Dr. Michael
McCurry, state demographer, that
projections, even from the Census
Bureau and other fact-based
sources, can change. Haakon
County has been losing population
for years. Currently, over 20 per-
cent of its population is over 65
years of age. Communicable dis-
eases, such as whooping cough and
others, have been diminishing,
while degenerative diseases, such
as cancer and those associated with
old age, have been increasing. In
Haakon County, the average in-
come has increased, yet the num-
ber of people considered under the
poverty line has also increased.
Things can change.
The second main topic was an at-
tempt to determine what makes a
strong region, particularly this re-
gion. Differences between the
Philip, Kadoka and Wall communi-
ties are numerous. The similarities
can be used to strengthen their
The third main topic was an ex-
amination of existing economic de-
velopment plans in the region. One
of these was a new idea promoted
by residents from the Kadoka area.
Several plans were revisited plans
from Horizons meetings held in the
individual communities from previ-
ous years.
Kari ONeil, community develop-
ment field specialist, stated that
the kickoff session produced some
great thoughts on how this region
can gain a competitive advantage
by working together, pooling re-
sources and building relationships.
As the sessions move forward, at-
tendees are to invite those diverse
and committed people they know
who would be assets to this group.
The only real requirement is an
openness to this process and a pas-
sion for this region.
The Philip session discussed the
Creation, Attraction, Retention,
Expansion model. Communities
can grow from the creation of new
businesses, from the attraction of
new industry or businesses, from
the retention and strengthening of
existing businesses, and from the
expansion of existing firms in the

Local tree farm crop insurance
fraud case settled for $170,000
There was a narrow range in
market expectations for corn, soy-
bean and wheat ending stocks prior
to the release of the World Agricul-
tural Supply and Demand Esti-
mates report in December.
The soybean and corn ending
stocks estimates were in line with
the market's expectations, while
the wheat ending stocks estimate
was on the high side of the mar-
ket's expectation, said Lisa Elliott,
South Dakota State University Ex-
tension commodity marketing spe-
U.S. corn balance
remains unchanged
Prior to the report, market ana-
lysts' average expectation for corn
ending stocks was 663 million
bushels. In the report, corn ending
stocks remained unchanged from
the November report at 647 million
bushels, only slightly below expec-
tation. The rest of the U.S. corn
balance sheet also remained un-
changed from the November re-
World corn production was in-
creased by 9.4 million metric tons
(mmt); however, this was offset by
increased demand, leaving world
corn ending stocks nearly un-
changed at 117.6 million metric
tons. Global production increases
were shown for China (8 mmt) and
Canada (1.46 mmt), while Ar-
gentina's production was decreased
(0.5 mmt).
Wheat ending stocks
increase by
50 million bushels
Market analysts' average expec-
tation prior to the December
WASDE report for wheat ending
stocks was 712 million bushels
with expectations ranging from 612
million bushels to 754 million
In the report, wheat ending
stocks were increased by 50 million
bushels from the November esti-
mate, putting ending stocks at 754
million bushels. The ending stocks
figure was at the high end of expec-
tations. This is a seven percent in-
crease in ending stocks of wheat
compared to the November
WASDE estimate.
Ending stocks were increased
due to exports being decreased by
50 million metric tons. This is the
third straight WASDE report
where exports have been de-
creased. Prior to the WASDE re-
port, current marketing year ex-
port commitments were at 55.1
percent of the projected WASDE
export pace, 27 weeks into the mar-
keting year.
An examination of U.S. wheat by
class shows varied changes in ex-
ports. Exports were decreased (45
million bushels) for hard winter
wheat, decreased (five million
bushels) for hard spring wheat, de-
creased (10 million bushels) for soft
red wheat, and increased (10 mil-
lion bushels) for white wheat.

Lookin Around by Syd Iwan
I lost a good friend last week
when Winona Carson tired of this
life after 94 years and went on
ahead of me to heaven. Im not
even sure when she and I first got
acquainted, but it was over thirty
years ago and probably close to
forty. I think it was when her
grandson, Scott, worked for us for
a few years shortly after he got out
of high school. No matter how and
when we met, weve stayed friends
ever since.
Winona loved farm-raised eggs
since she said they tasted so much
better than those available in
stores. As a result, I delivered eggs
to her on a regular basis which
meant we got to visit some every
week or two. When I stopped in, it
was a rare occurrence for her to be
sitting idle. She was either baking,
cooking, sewing or doing some
other kind of work. Loafing about
was not in her vocabulary. Useful
endeavor was.
Neither did she mess about
doing things slowly. She moved
right along. I recall many times
when I delivered some old hens or
other surplus chickens to her. I
would call and tell her I was com-
ing which prompted her to put
water on to boil for scalding. When
I arrived, she grabbed her axe and
had those birds beheaded and
ready for plucking before I left the
driveway. After I visited the bank
and grocery store and took care of
any other business I had, I would
stop back to pick up my cages. In
that short amount of time, the
chickens were apt to be plucked,
washed and ready to cook up for
canning. Sometimes she would
later give me a jar of canned
chicken that made up nicely into
soup or other tasty fare.
Winona was a very sweet and
kind lady. She didnt talk a lot, but
a smile was always close to the sur-
face. She was rather fun to tease
because it made her chuckle. She
didnt often tease back, but she did-
nt mind being teased herself about
little things. In short, she was the
kind of person you would like to
have as your grandmother. She
strongly reminded me of my own
grandma who doted on me and
liked to do nice things for me.
When I stopped in and there
were cookies or other treats sitting
on the table, I was always invited
to try them which I gladly did. One
such treat at Christmas time was
a fruit cake. Normally, Im not big
on fruit cake, but this one was dif-
ferent. It was actually good. I
asked for the recipe which was
soon written down for me, and Ive
made it several times. It makes a
huge batch that will not only last
through Christmas but probably
into March as well since part of it
can be frozen for later use. Oddly
enough, it is a no-bake cake that is
glued together with marshmallows
and other tasty goodies. I didnt
make it this year, come to think of
it, but maybe I will gather the mul-
titude of ingredients needed to con-
struct it and call it an Easter fruit-
cake in memory of my friend. I
know Ill never make it without it
bringing Mrs. C happily to mind.
When I stopped in at Winonas,
it was unusual for her to be alone.
Some friends or relatives were al-
most always there and had proba-
bly just been served a meal or were
going to be. Family was important,
and I met many of her kin includ-
ing some brothers and sisters, kids,
grandkids, and such. Her place
was where the family gathered. On
several occasions, I was called on
to take pictures at some family re-
union or event that Winona
wanted recorded photographically.
Her living room was a gallery of
those she held dear.
Winona always remembered me
at Christmas. Usually she gave me
something she had made like
potholders or the like, and I treas-
ured them, partly because they
were nice things, but mostly be-
cause shed made them. One of the
last things she gave me was a nifty
quilt. It was made with squares of
blue denim from old blue jeans on
one side and white, pink and red
flannel on the other. It was tied
with red yarn. She said I needed to
carry it in the new pickup Id just
purchased, and, as a result, it was
partly done in red since that was
the color of the pickup. It was a
grand quilt, and it is still riding
around with me in my red Ranger.
You just never know when you
might need a quilt. Its a comfort to
have along.
Well, although Ill miss my
friend until we meet again up-
stairs, I know she was ready to go.
Old age was becoming a burden,
and her bags were packed, so to
speak. I imagine shes already
looking around for useful things to
do up there in heaven. Ill be glad
one day to resume our friendship,
and, until then, Winona will con-
tinue to live in my mind and heart.

This year the governor's State of
the State provided a shared opti-
mistic outlook on the current sta-
tus and future of our great state.
Stewardship is an understood con-
cept by all of us who know how to
pay our bills and be an asset to so-
The criminal justice reform leg-
islation will be a focal point for this
legislative session, and we look for-
ward to the potential this bill has
for an increased focus on alterna-
tive sentencing, mental health, and
integrating our prisoners back into
society. All of this will require up-
front investment of money and peo-
ple, but we can hopefully avoid the
need to build more prisons in the
near future.
Along with our partners, it is our
hope that we can find ways to cre-
ate true economic development
throughout all of South Dakota
with a strong focus of bringing
more young people back to our
rural communities. Strong schools,
housing, and healthcare are all
critical components of economic de-
velopment for local communities.
The State of the Judiciary speech
by Chief Justice Gilbertson re-

No quitting ... by Del Bartels
The blow to his face pounded him back, his braced legs barely keep-
ing him upright. Somehow, his arms, through ingrained training, kept
the following barrage of strikes from connecting. His teeth clamped
hard on his mouthguard, lips parted to desperately suck in air. Pain
tried to squeeze his eyes the rest of the way shut, beyond the swelling
that had them already half useless.
His lower left side had to be guarded. Underneath the bruising, at
least three ribs were cracked. Arms heavy with more-than-average
muscle, were beyond exhaustion. If he could ever pause just a little, he
knew his legs would begin to quake and give. His right wrist, though
taped and reinforced under the boxing glove, was strained, growing
numb and unresponsive. Even as his left arm kept jabbing and the
right compressed for any opening oh to just step back and quit let
the pounding on his arms, chest and face stop.
Back home, a boy sat in his chair, knowing his big brother, his hero,
was in a contest that he could only dream about. Mom kept popping
around the corner, but was pretty much staying in the kitchen to
lamely hide her worry and fear. Her sons were so very different. The
older often carried the younger on his shoulders, using his huge frame
and muscles to spread fun and joy. Yet, the younger one had the true
strength staying in school, watching everyone else in sports, showing
the world a friendly humor instead of depression or bitterness. The two
lived off of mutual admiration. This boy was probably less of a quitter
that his brother was, a young man whose life had been training for the
ring. Their different strengths fed each other. Hes going to go the dis-
tance! It was certain, because he had promised he would. The boy sat
in his chair by the phone to hear about his hero.
Taste of blood, sting of sweat in the eyes, heat drying the throat with
each breath still, years of training helped keep his balance, his shift-
ing of his feet and a moving rhythm. Each missed punch cost dearly in
wasted strength. Each connection had to be harder! He had to give
everything. His little brother never gave up, neither would he!
A clang faintly got through his pulse-deafened skull. White and black
got between him and the other guy. His arms slowly lowered a ten-
tative conflict of denial and welcome. His left wrist was grabbed by a
hand, clamped hard so his continued but powerless need to bat it away
was denied. Would his arm be raised in victory or held where it was?
Raised would be good, but it didnt really matter. He had gone the dis-
tance. He was standing, as he had told his brother he would.
It was bedtime for the boy when the phone rang. Dad told him that
his big brother had stayed in every round. Mom, listening in and re-
lieved, could see the beaming pride in her younger son. The two would
be back in a few days. Finally hanging up, and it being far after his
bedtime, the gleeful boy turned his wheelchair and headed to bed.

nesota worked at NRCS (Natural
Resources Conservation Service) in
Pierre. She worked there a while
and met the people one would ex-
pect to meet in that type of work.
She told me that, after about a
month of meeting people, she got to
wondering about something. A lot
of the people told her they were
from West River. She had found
White River, Bad River, Cheyenne
River. She told me further that she
could never find West River on
the map. But, now she knows that
it is another kind of geographical

Letter to the Editor
by Rep. Kristi Noem
The next several months in Con-
gress are bound to be challenging,
and many tough conversations
need to be had. With the tax issue
behind us, we have the debt ceiling
debate ahead, as well as the need
to replace pending automatic cuts
known as the sequester with
more targeted budget cuts that will
not hurt our military and national
I am looking at these upcoming
debates as an opportunity to truly
focus on our nations out-of-control
spending. Years of reckless spend-
ing have maxed out our countrys
credit card, but instead of stepping
up to make the necessary decisions
to pay that credit card down, too
many in Washington are choosing
to look the other way and pass the
bill to our children and grandchil-
dren. This is not just wrong, I be-
lieve it is immoral.
Now over $16 trillion, our na-
tions debt is crippling. In the
House of Representatives, we have
taken decisive action to change the
attitude in Washington and focus
on prioritizing government spend-
ing. Weve continued to pass a
budget every year, despite the Sen-
ates lack of fiscal leadership. In
fact, it has now been over 1,350
days since the Senate passed a
budget. South Dakotas families
and small businesses know what
its like to have to meet a budget.
When money gets tight, tough de-
cisions have to be made. If South
Dakotans understand the principle
of only spending the money they
have, why cant our federal govern-
Washington needs to own up to
its spending problem. Does that
mean were going to have to make
some tough decisions that some
folks wont be happy about? Yes.
But if we want to leave our chil-
dren and grandchildren with a bet-
ter America, and if we want to
avoid going down the same path as
Greece, then these are decisions
that must be made.
Real solutions to solve

Greetings from start of the 88th
session of the South Dakota Legis-
lature from your District 27 Sena-
tor, Jim Bradford.
Because of the redistricting
process, there are many of you vot-
ers who are new to this district. Id
like to welcome you and encourage
you to contact me. For those of you
who I havent yet met, Id like to in-
troduce myself in this message.
Ive served in the S.D. Legisla-
ture for a total of 12 years, eight
years in the House and was re-
cently was re-elected to my third
term in the Senate. District 27 is
geographically one of the largest in
the state and includes Bennett,
Haakon, Jackson, Pennington and
Shannon counties.
I recently served on the Gover-
nors Criminal Justice Task Initia-
tive Task Force which will be
bringing forth legislation in this
session to improve our justice sys-
tem by providing for increases in
drug and alcohol courts. The focus
here is to help people recover, not
put them in prison.
Legislators should be reminded
that we serve as citizen lawmakers
and take great pride in our accessi-
bility to all of you as constituents of
our state. Like you, our regular
jobs and involvement in local com-
munity activities allows us to stay

being increased for the wheat
classes of hard winter, hard spring
and soft red. White wheat ending
stocks were decreased, while
durum wheat remained un-
Global wheat production was in-
creased by 3.7 million metric tons
due to production increases being
made to China (2.6 mmt), Australia
(one mmt), and Canada (0.5 mmt),
while a few other countries' produc-
tion numbers were adjusted
slightly. China's increase in pro-
duction was offset by an increase to
Chinese domestic usage, resulting
in China's ending stocks remaining
nearly unchanged. World wheat
ending stocks increased by 2.8 mil-
lion metric tons.
Currently, market traders are
weighing plentiful near-term
stocks, and slow export demand,
with potential production problems
in major wheat growing regions for
next year's crop, such as United
States and Russia.
The pace of wheat exports and
the weather in the major wheat
growing areas will largely dictate
the price of wheat in the near term.
Also, the release of the Quarterly
Grain stocks report January 11
will give another indication of the
amount of wheat that has been uti-
lized for livestock feeding.
Wheat exports decrease

mula have resulted in close to 500
South Dakota educators losing
their jobs. The result in District 27
schools, and all across the state,
was loss of electives and programs,
larger class sizes, and fewer key
support staff like teacher aides. Re-
pairing this damage will be my
highest priority.
On other important topics to
rural South Dakotans, Democratic
leadership is working on legislation
that came from the Regional Wa-
tershed Advisory Taskforce which
streamlines the process to estab-
lish local watershed districts. We
also have a strong interest in advo-
cating for changes to grain buyer
rules and regulations in light of the
recent failure of Anderson Seeds
sunflower operation. We must
work together to give preference to
the delivering producers/farmers
when insolvency happens in grain
purchasing facilities. Lastly we will
advocate for creative opportunities
to invest in research at our land
grant university along with pub-
lic/private partnerships to brand
our state as truly the most favor-
able research state in the country!

Wheat is a Staple Crop
In 2012, South Dakota farmers
planted the lowest number of
spring wheat acres since 1885.
When one considers the demand
for corn by the ethanol industry,
positively impacting the price of
corn, and the dramatic improve-
ments in corn genetics and subse-
quent yield improvements, its not
surprising that corn is surpassing
wheat in planted acres.
Wheat is still an important crop
however, not only for the flour and
the many products generated from
it, but for the inherent benefits it
provides. Wheat and other small
grains is the ultimate high
residue crop, offering significant
benefits to any crop rotation, par-
ticularly land under no-till man-
Although farmers often curse
the residue generated by a bounti-
ful wheat crop from the previous
year when planting a spring crop,
a mat of residue is considered one
of the keys to successful no-till
farming. The mat of residue that a
good wheat crop produces may be
most valuable in the heat of the
summer, when it helps to shade
the soil, keeping it cooler than bare
ground, and reducing evaporation.
Wheat is better at generating this
mat of residue than many other
Anyone who has heard Dwayne
Beck talk in the past several years
has certainly heard about the
amazing difference in wheat yields
in two very similar crop rotations
at the Dakota Lakes Research
Farm. The high residue rotation
consists of two years of high
residue crops, corn and wheat,
with the other year being field
peas. The low residue rotation
consists of two high residue
crops, corn and wheat, and two
low residue crops, soybeans and
field peas, both broadleaves. The
high residue rotation produces
better wheat yields than the low
residue rotation, but the big dif-
ference shows up in dry years, like
2002 and 2006, where the high
residue rotation produced right at
60 Bu/A, and the low residue ro-
tation less than 30 Bu/A. The
amazing thing is that the previous
two crops were the same, corn and
then field peas.
Kansas State University re-
search estimates that residue left
on the field vs. removing it can
save as much as 2 of water. Under
the right conditions, this 2 could
produce an additional 34 bu/a of
corn and 12 bu/a of wheat. Re-
search also indicates that 100 lbs
of dry soil containing 4-5% organic
matter can hold 165-195 lbs. of
water, whereas 100 lbs. of dry soil
containing 1.5-2% organic matter
can only hold 35-45 lbs. of water.
Once again, wheat and other small
grains are king when it comes to
generating residue and organic
A presenter recently said farm-
ers should raise field peas because
the best way to raise a good corn
crop is to raise a good wheat crop
to plant into. That speaks well for
both field peas and wheat in a crop
rotation. The wisdom of planting
corn into wheat residue certainly
showed in the summer of 2012.
Particularly winter wheat has
also shown to be highly beneficial
to at least two populations of
wildlife; ducks and pheasants. Be-
cause they are seeded in the fall,
winter wheat fields remain rela-
tively undisturbed throughout the
nesting season the following year.
Consider maintaining or including
wheat in your crop rotation; it can

Governor Dennis Daugaard com-
pared a recent shoring up of the
state Capitols floor to make it
structurally sound for the next 100
years with the efforts of the state to
strike a fiscal structural balance.
Daugaard called both good
The governor delivered this com-
parison during the State of the
State address January 8 in Pierre
on the first day of the 2013 legisla-
tive session. He noted that South
Dakota is a comparative bright
spot of contained spending in a na-
tion of fiscally short states. Min-
nesota, Daugaard said, is $1.1 bil-
lion short at the current time.
While the governor studiously
avoided education reform topics in
his message, he did announce a
criminal justice effort aimed at
lessening the number of inmates
held in state prisons. Instead, he
noted the results of a criminal jus-
tice work group, highlighting three
of its recommendations.
Those included the creation of al-
ternative courts for repeat offend-
ers with serious addiction prob-
lems. A pilot program has shown
an impressive 80 percent of partic-
ipants back on track, Daugaard
He is asking the state to copy

quires participating drug offenders
to call in each morning for random
testing. Legislation would set up
one urban and one rural pilot pro-
Third, legislation will be calling
for ways to keep drug, alcohol and
mental health offenders from being
incarcerated. He said 80 percent of
persons admitted to prison are
those who have committed non-vi-
olent crimes.
This is not being soft on crime,
said the Governor, but being
smart on crime.

The skyrocketing cost of housing
drug and alcohol offenders in the
S.D. Penitentiary system and the
number of repeat offenders is com-
ing under scrutiny by the state ju-
diciary system.
South Dakota Supreme Court
Chief Justice David Gilbertson said
January 9 that the state cannot
continue on its current path be-
cause the spiraling costs of the
penal systemat $25,000 per year
to house an inmateor there will
be nothing left in the future to
spend on other programs, such as
Gilbertson said, as an example,
in the 1980s there were 32 beds in
the womens prison, where now
today there are 450 females. That,
he said, is a 15-fold increase in 20
years. The increase is male prison-
ers is similar, he added.
Much of that increase, he said, is
in non-violent crimes resulting
from alcohol and drug abuse.
Gilbertson noted that after 37
years in the criminal justice sys-
tem, he is now seeing a third gen-
eration of certain families running
afoul of our criminal laws, and the
choices have only been sending
them to prison or back out on pro-
However, Gilbertson said, the
Northern Hills Drug Program,
which was what he called a leap of
faith five years ago, is now being
used as an example of what can be
accomplished statewide. In recent
years, the program has been ex-
panded to the southern Black Hills,
as well as Pierre and Sioux Falls.
This past year an alcohol court was
begun in Aberdeen and a drug
court in Yankton began this month.
The first graduates of the 18-
month program said to a person
that it would have been easier to
just go to the pen and do their
time, said Gilbertson, but they
have proved that with proper guid-
ance people can be returned a pro-
ductive member of society. So far,
the success rate is in the 81 percent
These courts, he stressed are for
drug and alcohol addicts, not for
drug pushers or violent criminals.
This alternative to probation or
penitentiary time are proven to
work better to break the revolving
door of crime with fewer tax dollars
being spent, said Gilbertson.
They give the sentencing judge
tools in addition to the traditional
penitentiary sentences and proba-
The previous day a comprehen-
sive bill entitled the South Dakota
Public Safety Improvement Act
was filed in the Senate as SB70.
The proposed legislation, according
to Gov. Dennis Daugaard, is en-
dorsed by everyone in the system
from sheriffs and police up to the
chief justice.
The bill is the result of a task
force study.
Substance abuse remedy: drug
and alcohol courts or prison?
by Elizabeth Sam Grosz

Senate Democratic leader Jason
Frerichs, Wilmot, called it refresh-
ing that Governor Dennis Dau-
gaards State of the State address
was one that was not so divisive.
This year, Daugaard centered on
criminal justice reform, which,
Frerichs noted, was something we
can all agree on. Last years pro-
posal for education reform,
HB1234, was divisive, he said,
from the beginning.
Daugaard, on January 8 in
Pierre, proposed following the rec-
ommendations of a criminal justice
work group, outlining three of the
18 proposals. Later, legislation was
filed in the Senate to accomplish
The proposals deal with the use
of alternative drug courts, random
drug testing of program partici-
pants, and funding of parole pro-
grams to keep drug, alcohol and
mental health offenders out of jail,
which will save millions of dollars
in prison costs.
Frerichs was in agreement, but
notes that the governor still
missed the boat when it came to
the big issues of education and
Medicaid funding of nursing
However, said Frerichs, there is
a different mood this year in the
legislature. The first year it was
cuts, he said, and the second it was
reform, but this year, there ap-
pears to be more concern about pro-
viding funds for education and
nursing homes.
Frerichs said there also appears
to be support for extending the
school year, which would address
additional funding.

pretty things.
The January 4, 2012, issue of the
Rapid City Journal had an article
by one of my favorites, Cathie
Draine. She suggested that we get
together and study gardening to be
ready for spring. March 2, Rapid

event, held this year at the Alex
Johnson Hotel. We can hear
Melinda Meyer, Minneapolis-St.

and our old friend, John Ball,
South Dakota State University
professor of forestry and forest
health specialist. We used to write
our tree questions to him.
Sunday, January 6, I phoned my
son, Hans P. Hansen, for his birth-
day. He was gone out to church. I
asked the desk staff person to give
him my good wishes.
Irene Cox had company in the
Somerset Court guest dining room
at lunch on Sunday. They were the
family with the three little girls,
Sydney, Hayley and Macey.
The Rapid City Journal came up
with at least one heartening item
on January 6, 2013. Students at
the South Dakota School of Mines
have a group who make friends
with young folks who are academi-
cally challenged and they meet and
do things together. They are called
the Mines Buddies. Young folks
from Black Hills Works pair up
with SDSM&T students and in the
newspaper they are shown decorat-
ing cookies and carving pumpkins.
These and many other activities
give the Works young folks an op-
portunity to be with others in their
age group, and it is good for the
Miners too, because they become
aware of others needs and this
makes them more useful.
Triskaidekaphobia is a fun word,
which means fear of the number
13. In our lore, there is some super-
stition to the effect that 13 is an
unlucky number.
Sunday, we had church with
Terry Pulse and Steve. Jack
Humke played We Three Kings
as it was three kings day. Terrys

him in a month or so when she gets

ber at Ellsworth Air Force Base for

had a big article about South
Dakotans living longer. The census
shows that North Dakota is the
only state with more citizens over
100 years of age. South Dakota has
about 250 people who are over 100
years old. It is a little like the so-
called joke that goes something like
Is it true that married men live

No, it only seems longer. Yuk,

It is not too late for Christmas
cards and year-end letters. Today,

Nixon. It is all in rhyme. I might
share it with you if I get a request.
When I was a kid, a neighbor,
Mrs. Humbert (Grandma Hum-
bert) who lived at the old Climax,
two miles east of Grindstone, was
fairly deaf. She had a listening
horn. She would put the little end
in her ear, and the horn part would
collect the sound. No batteries
needed. Now the new, modern
hearing aids are a big help to some
people. I remember Virgil was usu-
ally swearing at his. Why cant we
have a little tiara with sort of cup
shapes to gather sounds? It could
be inconspicuous or decorative. It is
helpful for one to put his hand
around his ear, but sometimes we
need both hands for other things. I
hope to see an invention like this
on the market.
My daughter, Carol, Colorado
Springs, emailed that it was a red
letter day for her because they got
their road plowed out. The new
MEND classes are going well.
Carol teaches about food choices
and ideas for not getting fat. Long
ago, for me, Weight Watchers was
a very effective way to hold a
steady weight or lose. One main
idea was small bites, time spent
chewing, and of course food selec-
tion. Now, my problem is how to
keep weight on.
M.R. Hansen came for scrabble,
and with two blanks, I made the
word retired, and we agreed that if
we got an S, we would call it re-
tires, and also that S would be on
the red square for a triple score.
But anyway, retired put me over
Wednesday, January 9, 2013, at
Somerset Court, the activity direc-
tors took down the Christmas tree.
Thank you for putting it up and
putting it away. We enjoyed it for a
long time.
Somerset Court residents might
have to get up a petition to get
Sharon Keen (our beautician) off
jury duty. Our hair is looking sort
of bedraggled.
An underappreciated activity at
Somerset Court is fully fit. It in-
cludes some neglected stretches
and there is an opportunity to use
weights. I think it is valuable. I
usually dont attend that activity,
because I am too tired, or is it just
lazy? Wednesday, I saved up en-
ergy for playing pool, but did not
get enough together.
The Rapid City Journal for Jan-
uary 9, 2013, carried the obituary
of Arnold Wolden, Philip. My sym-
pathy to family and friends. For
many years, Arnold and Virginia
were near neighbors, just a couple
blocks down the road.
Keith and Laura Johnson, Lin-
coln, Neb., (my niece, Effie May
Huletts son and his wife) have
been emailing some old home
movies of their family, and one was
of the Hulett homestead in the
Grindstone country. I see the old
buildings, and sections of the Rolla
Palmer house. The black cattle, I
believe, would be Herbie Sielers,
because he has pastured his cattle
there for many years.

It has words you never heard of.

The Rapid City Journal for Jan-

story about using terrariums for
growing unusual plants. And an-
other article about planting heir-

Some of those mentioned were sea
shell cosmos, canary creeper and
gift zinnia. These varieties are
noted for their fragrance and bril-
liant colors. They also attract bees
and beneficial flies.

Friday, January 11, 2013, at

Many places of business in Rapid
City were closed, and schools were
out. Some highways were closed.
The Pioneer Review for January
10, 2013, arrived and the front
page headlines included permits
for Dakota Mill and Grain to go
ahead with its building and rail-
road siding projects. It seems that
no one believes that the area in
question is or can be subject to
The other interesting headline
was that Digger and Dorothy
Hansen have sold the bowling alley
in Philip, known as the Rock and
Roll Lanes for many years, to
Marty and Debbie Gartner, who
will call the place the Lucky Strike.
The Rock and Roll Lanes was like
an institution. I can only hope it
will be much the same as always.
We always called it the Boltin
Alley for no reason.
In the same issue of the Pioneer
Review, we learned that Golden
West Telecommunications offers 44
$1,000 scholarships to local high
school graduates. They recognize
that the high school graduates of
today will be the community lead-
ers of tomorrow. Cooperative busi-
nesses make it possible to have ex-
cellent service in the area of
telecommunications in rural areas.

People who have delayed getting
vaccinated for flu may want to pro-
ceed, now that flu virus activity is
widespread in South Dakota, said
a state health official.
We do encourage people to get
vaccinated early in the season, but
its still not too late to get immu-
nized, said Dr. Lon Kightlinger,
state epidemiologist for the Depart-
ment of Health. The flu virus is
likely to be with us for several
weeks, if not months, so getting
vaccinated now can provide impor-
tant protection from the flu.
Kightlinger noted that this
years flu activity is occurring ear-
lier and at higher levels than re-
cent years, other than the 2009
pandemic. To date, South Dakota
has reported 469 laboratory con-
firmed cases of flu and 135 flu re-
lated hospitalizations. There have
also been nine deaths reported, all
over the age of 75.
Annual flu vaccination is recom-
mended for everyone, but some are
at higher risk for complications
pregnant women, people over 50
years and people with chronic med-
ical conditions. Healthcare workers
and household contacts of high risk
populations such as those with
young infants should also be vacci-
nated. Children are another high
risk group, accounting for signifi-
cant cases and hospitalizations
each year and helping spread flu in
the community. The department of-
fers free flu vaccine for kids from
six months to 18 years.
In addition to vaccination, to pre-
vent the spread of the flu: wash
your hands often with soap and
water or use alcohol-based hand
gel, cover your mouth when you
cough or sneeze, dont touch your
eyes or nose or mouth, and stay
home if you are sick.
Flu activity increases, vaccinate

January 12, 2013, at the Rapid
City Regional Hospital.
Clifford D. Ramsey was born
May 13, 1931, in Philip, the son of
Claude and Hilda (Sether) Ram-
sey. He attended Philip High
School and as a junior, was part of
the undefeated, unscored-upon
football team. He graduated from
Philip High School in 1950.
Cliffs dad died when he was 13,
so Cliff assisted in running his
parents ranch at a young age.
After high school he remained at
the ranch.
Cliff was united in marriage to
Rita Urban on July 25, 1951, in
Pierre. To this union were born
four children, Doug, Bart, Vicki
and Gary.
They remained on the ranch all
their 61 years of marriage. He
loved the family, outdoors, and
hunting. He cherished the time he
was able to spend with all of them.
Cliff still has the state record mule
Cliff was a member of the
United Church of Philip, a school
board member, and church board
member for many years.

Arnold C. Wolden_______________________________
Arnold C. Wolden, age 95, of
Philip, S.D., passed away peace-
fully on Tuesday morning, Janu-
ary 8, 2013, at the Hans P. Peter-
son Memorial Hospital in Philip,
with his family at his side.
Arnold C. Wolden was born to
Johanna (Running) and Anton
Wolden on January 7, 1918, at
home in Union County, near Elk
Point. Both of his parents emi-
grated from Norway.
On March 9, 1930, the Wolden
family moved to Philip from Beres-
ford, driving two Model T Fords, a
1918 and 1925 touring car. The
family had loaded two box cars
with livestock, machinery and
household goods.
As a young man, Arnold farmed
the family farm northeast of Philip
with his parents. In the late 1930s
he was employed by Civil Conser-
vation Corps and Works Progress
Administration, which included
Lake Sunshine. He received his
pilots license in the late 1940s,
purchased a J3 Piper Cub airplane
and continued to fly until 1953. He
was a frequent attendee at fly-ins
and flight shows including
Oshkosh, Wis. Then he traded the
airplane for a new red Ford pickup
that was plagued with almost
every problem on the planet and
wished many times he had just
kept the airplane.
On January 30, 1952, Arnold
married Virginia Smith Johnson
at the First Lutheran Church in
Philip, where he was a charter
member. To this union five chil-
dren were born, Gene, Linda,
Roger, Mark and Terry, and he
also raised two stepchildren, Janet
and Michael.
Arnold participated in the Boy
Scouts with his sons, and he was
an active member of the South
Dakota Stockgrowers Association.
Other interests included attend-
ing auctions, rodeos, dances, visit-
ing with residents at the nursing
home and attending their dance
night. In addition to farming and
ranching, Arnold was also a grain
seed salesman for Sokota Seeds
and Conklin products.
Upon semi-retirement, Arnold
and Virginia took dance classes
and attended dances throughout
the local area. He also helped build
a house at age 80 years young.
Arnold enjoyed his children,
grandchildren and great grand-
children and taught most of them
how to drive sitting on his lap,
years before they were of legal
driving age.
Arnold was a kind, gentle man
that was wonderful husband, dot-
ing father, grandfather to 20,
great-grandfather to 22, and great-
great-grandfather to three; brother
to Julie Brooks and Helga War-
rington; and loyal friend to many.
He believed every child was the
brightest and cutest that ever ex-
isted. He will be forever loved and
dearly missed.
Arnold was preceded in death by
his parents; three sisters, Mabel
Kiel, Alice Hanson-Strand and
Agnes Fickbohm; two brothers:
Sam and Oliver; children, Janet
and Mark; great-great-grand-
daughters, Tessa Brenner, Logan
and Emma Duran.
Services were held Friday, Jan-
uary 11, at the First Lutheran
Church in Philip with Pastor
Frezil Westerlund officiating.
Music was provided by Marilyn
Millage, pianist, and Kim Kan-
able, vocalist.
Ushers were Mike Brooks,
James Hoag, Roger OConnell and
Daryll Dietrich.
Ushers were Patrick Craven,
Michael Johnson, Casey Johnson
Jamie Johnson, Cory Wolden,
Blaine Wolden, Dustin Wolden,
Mark Osborn, Eric Wiedenman,

Late holiday news: John and
Arnis Knutson had an early
Thanksgiving at their house with
their family. Then, they celebrated
Christmas a few days early in
Brookings with all their kids and
grandkids at daughter Katies
house. They also spent a day with
Arnis sister, Gayle, and her family.
Christmas Eve, Bob and
LaVonne Hansen and Scott and
Becky Brech were their guests for
supper, then they all attended the
candlelight church service in
Philip. After church, they all came
back to Johns and played a game
called pegs and jokers.
John and Arnis spent Christmas
Day home alone. Their son, C.J.
and wife Jill and grandkids, Gun-
ner and Harley, came two days
after Christmas and spent time
through New Years Day. C.J. and
John spent a day at Johns cabin in
the Black Hills working on the fin-
ishing touches to the newly built
They had a quiet New Years Eve
with supper at The Steakhouse and
called it an early evening to get the
kids home to bed. Then on New
Years Day, they all went to Bob
and LaVonne Hansens home at
Howes for the familys annual po-
tato dumpling dinner. Scott, Becky,
Andrew and Brooklyn Brech,
Courtney Gebes, Todd, Ramie,
Tripp and Andrea Hansen, and
neighbor Betty Newsome were also
there for an enjoyable day. Most
had to leave for home soon after
dinner, but Scott, Becky, John and
Arnis stayed and played a board
Their son, Scott Knutson, is still
living in Sioux Falls and is a sewer
engineer for the city. Daughter
Katie is still living in Brookings
and works for Century 21.
It has happened again, a cousin
I have not seen since he was 17
years old and joined the Marines.
After spending 40 years in the
Marines, he has retired and is liv-
ing in Kadoka. I heard his name
mentioned, so I called and sure
enough it was my cousin. His
mother was Ardie Kitterman who
was raised at Wall. Her folks
moved to Custer where she met my
family. Their kids were all born at
Custer. He has a lot of relatives in
the Wall area. I plan to go visit him
Deb Smith has resumed her kick
boxing lessons again. She attends
two days a week. She was busy
Wednesday taking care of Logan as
Tucker and Jess went to Rapid
City for her doctor appointment. It
sure seems like time has gone fast,
as that new little one is due to ar-
rive the last of the month.
Deb said that the one-act play at
the Philip school was very good and
there was a large crowd in atten-
dance. There were many comments
on how good and enjoyable the play
January 13, Deb went to Philip
for breakfast at the senior citizens
center that the Masons were spon-
Barb Coy was home over the
weekend visiting her dad, Rich
Smith, and other family members.
Bob Thorson reported a very nice
stay at Neil Drurys cabin in the
Black Hills near Rochford. His for-
mer classmates, Miles Wheeler and
Don Foster, were there with him.
Miles had a mountain lion hunting
license, so they hunted a little but
no luck. They didnt even see any
tracks. But they had a very enjoy-
able time just catching up on what
had been happening in their lives
since they had seen each other last.
Bob said he was really impressed
and pleased with how his garage is
looking with the new shelves, the
handy work of Jodi and her dad,
Ed. It didnt sound like they were
finished, as Bob said you can use a
lot of storage in a garage.
Bob and his fiance, Jodi, and
Jodis folks, Ed and Cleone, all
went dancing at the nursing home
in Philip Tuesday night enjoying
Carstensens music and those who
play with them.
This last week has been a hard
week for Rita Ramsey and her fam-
ily. They all spent several days at
the bedside of Cliff Ramsey. We

were saddened Saturday morning,
January 12, to receive word he had
passed away. We have lost a hus-
band, dad, grandfather, brother,
uncle, cousin, and a wonderful
friend and our sympathy and
prayers go out to the family.
Sympathy also goes out to the
family of Tressa Gabriel, who was a
neighbor north of us about 30 miles.
We saw Tressa and her husband a
lot as they would help Kenneths
uncle, Carrol Knutson, work cattle
and sheep and we would all be up
there helping at the same time.
Tressa and I would help Aunt Min-
nie cook for all the men and I en-
joyed visiting with her through the
I never ventured out this week as
it was cold, cold, cold, plus there
was lots of snow. I measured the
snow that was on top of a bench out
to the wind and I measured 7 feet 6
inches. Not official. I scooped my
porch and sidewalks off and it was
hard and heavy packed snow. I saw
some pretty big drifts where Mar-
vin had to scoop out the gates so he
could get through to feed the cattle.
It took quite a while to get it
scooped out, then he drove around
the other drifts to feed them where
the snow had blown off. It was after
lunch before he finished.
Hope in the wind beneath our
wings. When we are afraid to fly. It
lifts our spirits when they are low
and calms us when we cry, Hope is
glue that mends the heart thats bro-
ken now and then, and encourages
the fallen to rise and try again.

Sarah Parsons celebrated her
11th birthday Saturday (actual day
was Thursday). Guests for supper
at Earl, Jodi, Rachel and Sarah's
were Bryan and Sharon Olivier
and Bart and Janice Parsons.
News is very short this week.
Maybe people are relaxing and
staying home after the holidays, or
they are sick with this stuff going
around, or they stayed home be-
cause of the weather. All day Fri-
day and part of Saturday, the wind
blew and it snowed. We only ended
up with three inches of snow and
.15 of moisture. At times the visi-
bility was pretty poor so was a good
time to stay home.

Moses Building Center
stocking drawing
We gave the worlds largest stocking full of toys away for Christmas, and the girls
won it Faith and Fallon Tucker of Interior, was the announcement from Moses
Building Center, Philip. MBC customers had signed up for the stocking for young-
sters up to age 10. The drawing was held December 21. The twin daughters of
John and Heather Tucker won the eight-foot tall stocking plumb full of toys said
MIke Moses. He plans on making the drawing an annual event. Courtesy photo
Shown is part of the local National Mutual Benefit board presented a check to
Mary Parquet in the amount of $5,003. This money was raised at a soup supper
held Wednesday, December 19, at St. William Catholic Church in Midland. The
Midland School Booster Club and St. William Altar Society, along with National
Mutual Benefit Branch #85, prepared and served the soup supper to approxi-
mately 135 people. They raised $2,503 that night and the NMB home office
matched up to $2,500 for the total of $5,003. The money raised is to help the
Parquets with medical and travel expenses incurred from Mary's kidney trans-
plant. Shown, from left, are Doug Hauk, Maureen Palecek, Tom and Mary Par-

Below is a list of some of Gover-
nor Dennis Daugaards proposals
from his 2013 State of the State ad-
dress on the first day of the South
Dakota Legislature in Pierre.
The establishment of Blood Run
State Park near Sioux Falls, mak-
ing it the 13th in the state. The last
time a state park was designated
was in 1973.
Spouses of military personnel
who are transferred into the state
would receive a streamlined
process to easily transfer licensing
credentials for their professions.
Called professional licensing porta-
bility, it is something sister states
have, said Daugaard.
It is long past time to be good
stewards, said Daugaard, to deal
with the buildings at the Human
Services Center, Yankton. An as-
sessment is needed to either re-
store or demolish buildings.
The battle continues against the
mountain pine beetle infestation in
the Black Hills. Personnel already
have removed over 100,000 in-
fected trees in Custer State Park,
with more to be done this year.
The Labor Department is having
success in helping those on unem-
ployment find jobs. In a new pro-
gram, three out of four are off the
unemployment roll.
Tourism has experienced again a
record number of visitors to the
state. The tourism tax is helping to
fund promotional efforts, and the
governor supports the proposal to
make the temporary one-half per-
cent permanent.
The Department of Health re-
ports the state is still among the
states with highest immunization
rates. The past two years the state
has led the nation in overall flu
vaccination, said Daugaard.
The Department of Education
and the Board of Regents have de-
signed remediation courses identi-
fied students would take before at-
tending college, if needed, rather
than after starting. The new sys-
tem identifies those students while
they are still in high school by their
ACT scores.
The Department of Natural Re-
sources reports the state is only
one of seven in the nation to meet
all national air and water stan-
The Department of Transporta-
tion, said Daugaard, reports the
states highways and bridges are in
as good a shape as they have ever
The Education and Enhance-
ment Corporation, said Daugaard,
is refinancing the proceeds from to-
bacco fund laws that will eventu-
ally put more money into the edu-
cation fund that fights tobacco use.
The Department of Social Serv-
ices has been recognized by the fed-
eral government as the best in the
nation in the effort to protect
against fraudulent claims. Also,
the time substance abuse clients
must wait for treatment has been
cut from 30 days down to two, Dau-
gaard added.
The Department of Corrections
reported the state was the first in
the nation to be board certified in
2011, and that was maintained in
The Department of Veterans Af-
fairs notes that construction is be-
ginning on a new veterans home in
Hot Springs to better serve a new
generation of retiring veterans, as
well as those returning from the
front lines.
The Infant Mortality Task Force
chaired by First Lady Linda Dau-
gaard reports the distribution of
500 safe sleep kits.
The South Dakota Workforce Ini-
tiative has increased the states ca-
pacity to train welders for use in
the states economic development
efforts. It also funded the develop-
ment of Distance Learning pro-
grams at Watertown and at the
minimum security mens prison at
Improving the availability of
health care providers in rural areas
has resulted in recruitment assis-
tance in seven small communities,
plus 60 more in 35 communities.
Oil development in the state is
an area where preparation is
needed, said the governor. How-
ever, he said, if we cant pull oil of
the ground, lets help North Dakota
with services.

groveries and lumber for J.D. Dib-
ble and started for the Skieview at
1:30 p.m. Roads heavy from rain
the night before. Made Robinsons
Sheep Ranch 13 miles north of
Philip just at dark. Stayed
overnight. Saw the first frost of the
season - a big white one. Made ice
1/4 inch thick. Six miles north of
Robinsons and at the Skieview
there was no frost. Reached Dib-
bles Ranch at 1:15 p.m. Weather
threatening. Cold clouds looked
like snow.
Sept. 28 Heavy frost this morn-
ing at Robinsons Sheep Ranch 17
miles south of Skieview. None at
Fairchilds nor at Skieview. Worked
on Dibbles barn in afternoon. Dib-
ble paid me $7 balance on hog in

much warmer in afternoon.
Sept. 30 40 at 8 a.m. Went to

Oct. 4 Vegetation is still grow-
ing. Tomato vines have not even
been nipped by the frost yet.
Chapped wood and chored around
(to be continued )
The snow had disappeared the
first part of the week and bare
ground appeared. As I walked
across the yard, there was green
grass showing where the snow had
been. I marveled at that sight.
Mother earth is wanting to start
the spring regrowth a little early in
my estimation. Now as I write the
news, the backyard is blanketed
with white and the lilac bushes did
their duty of holding back the snow
in pillows of drifts. They beacon me
to come and make a snow angel,
but I need younger ones to pass
this along to.
The more I encourage a child to
think for himself, the more he will
care what I think. Daysies
Monday after Tony Harty got his
mail and visited at the Hairs
home, he stopped by our place to
give me his news then went on to
Wall for the services for Tressa
Gabriel. He visited Cindy Weaver
before returning home.
Sandee Gittings kept a dental
appointment in Rapid City Mon-
day. She also attended to some
business in Wall on the return trip
Tuesday, I made a trip to Rose-
bud with the Haakon County
Prairie Transportation van. It was
a bit windy, but pretty nice day for
a country trip.
Tuesday, Tony Harty visited at
the Hair home. In the late after-
noon, he attended the visitation for
Winona Carson here in Kadoka.
George Ainslie was a visitor
Wednesday at Don and Vi Moodys,
to discuss coyote calling places in
the area. He was getting in touch
also with nearby neighbors.
Wednesday afternoon, Don and Vi
had lunch at the Lucky Strike
lanes and visited with former own-
ers, Dorothy and Digger Hansen,
and became acquainted with the
new owners, Marty and Debbie
Gartner. They did some shopping,
getting their errands ran before the
snowstorm started brewing out in
the Rockies.
George and Sandee Gittings
were in Pierre Wednesday for an
appointment with George's doctor.
They also did business in Midland
on the way to Pierre and on the
way back.
Wednesday, I was the driver of
the HCPT van for a trip to Philip in
the morning. I delivered a sign to
Lois Pettyjohn in the afternoon. It
was a beautiful day to accomplish
a lot of little things. Phyllis Word
came over for a visit.
Tony Harty was a visitor with
Shirley Hair Wednesday.
Thursday was again a nice day
in the area, a bit windy, but fairly
warm. Bill and I put the charger on
the big tractor only to find out the
batteries, that were 1998 vintage,
wouldnt hold a charge so new ones
were installed. The next thing was
a hydraulic leak, so that was taken
off and welded and put back on and
the tractor was parked and ready
for the pending weather. Mission
accomplished and Bill was able to
enjoy the afternoon at his second
home, the Philip card room.
Sympathy is extended to the
family of Arnold Wolden. Arnold
was a special kind of guy and was
one fellow who didnt hesitate to
enjoy the achievement of those
around him. He nominated numer-
ous ladies for the Spirit of Dakota
and I was one he so chose to honor
with that nomination. He was a
great supporter for Virginia to
make and market her wood prod-
uct, Petina, and was just an all
around interesting fellow. His love
of aviation was visited about to all
who came by and he had fantastic
stories and pictures to share. He
enjoyed dancing and music and
passed that along to his grandchil-
dren and great-grandchildren.
Services were Friday and I am
sorry to report I wasnt able to get
to them due to the weather. It was-
nt a good flying day for us mortals,
Arnold, but you can now soar with
the eagles.
The weather made a long
awaited forecasted arrival to bring
wind and blowing snow by Friday
morning Don and Vi Moody had
to cancel appointments in Rapid
City and everyone tucked in for the
big storm. Don thinks they had
around four to five inches, kind of
hard to tell as everything pretty
much blew into drifts, but driving
around in the grassy areas it ap-
pears about five inches or so. They
received a little more at their Rapid
Valley place.
Weather kept most everyone
home Friday. Sandee Gittings did-
n't even go in to work.
Cathy Fiedler is still trying to get
well from the bug she caught, so
she and Ralph have been working
and recovering. The family is all
well and keeping busy, the grand-
kids busy with school and parents
with work. Wednesday and Thurs-
day were beautiful days in the
Sturgis area, getting near 60.
Thursday afternoon though the
weather changed with some freez-
ing drizzle during the night and
very cold air moved in with snow
Friday leaving behind about three
inches of snow, but lots of wind.
Friday, Tony Harty made a trip
early in the morning to Philip to
pick up some medical supplies and
was wishing he had stayed home.
Before he got home, the weather
had settled in and blowing snow
made it pretty nasty even for a 24
mile drive. He called to tell me to
stay home and not try to get to
Philip. After arriving home, he was
kept busy shoveling out the door to
the south so he could get out later.
It seems the snow likes to drift into
his drive.
As we got around Friday morn-
ing, school cancellations were hap-
pening in the Black Hills, as well
as other events being postponed
and canceled. I visited Dale and
Cindy OConnell to get some pic-
tures Dale found of the Fred
Fairchild family among his grand-
mothers things. There is one of
Marjorie and Clare together and
Monte alone, and one that says
Fairchild and has to be Fred in
Washington. I visited Pat Jensen
at the Jackson County Title Com-
pany office here in Kadoka, work-
ing on some sign business. That
was around 9:30 and the ground
was getting whiter by the minute.
Our furnace decided to act up, but
we kept moderately comfortable by
turning up the electric cove heating
in the additions and running a
heater in the living room. The elec-
tric blanket was much appreciated.
Thankful for the electricity that
can keep things warm and also
thankful to Brian Hanson for his
trouble shooting guidance on the
furnace until he could come over.
Saturday, Don and Vi Moody
began the start of snow removal,
but Sunday was more snow re-
moval. Sunday afternoon, Brian
Buxcel was in the area with a
friend to a walk-in on the north
creek to check out the coyotes.
Then in the afternoon, Chris
Walker and his son came out to
Moodys to try the fun of sledding
on the south slopes to get in some
"fun in the snow!"
The sport of coyote calling is
something new to Don and Vi and
they are anxious to see the results
and sledding wow. If it wasnt for
the fact that you have to haul the
sled back up the hill it would be
more attractive to folks.
The Haakon County Farmers
Union will be holding their meeting
at the Lucky Strike bowling alley
in Philip January 30 at 5:00 p.m.
Mark you calendars to attend and
see what is of major concern for
farmers and ranchers.
Vowalla, the tractor we readied
for the cold and snow fired up in
fine shape and Bill pushed some of
the snowdrifts out of our way. The
little pickup was able to make it to
the caf, so we enjoyed our usual
breakfast before I got the skid
loader fired up and did some close
up cleaning of snow away from the
buildings. Reminded me of the good
old days when I spent hours clean-
ing and bedding the pigs with the
skid loader. The big difference was
I dont have quite the same warm
Sympathy is extended to the
family of Cliff Ramsey who passed
away Saturday. Cliff was a quiet,
hard working fellow who we en-
joyed knowing over the years. It
was always a joy to visit with him
and there was always a smile to
greet you. We, along with so many
others, rejoiced in the fact that Cliff
was able to ward off major health
issues a number of years ago and
enjoy a quality life. I have a big
knife in a sheath, made from an elk
horn, I think that we bought at a
benefit auction. Cliff had made
that knife.
Saturday, Tony Harty fussed
around trying to get his door shov-
eled out at home and then got his
van out of the drifts that sur-
rounded it by shear rocking it back
and forth, then parked it in the
front yard until snow cleaning took
place. By the time he got all that
done, he was plumb worn out.
Sunday, Vi Moody started work-
ing with one of those agriculture
statistics information forms (usu-
ally says it takes 30 minutes to
complete) required by law and it's
an every five-year form as intense
in gathering data as for the IRS
she said.
Sunday, Tony Harty attended
church and when he came out the
battery was dead. Snow again was
the culprit, it had gotten packed in
around the door and by not shut-
ting all the way, in an hour he
needed a jump to get going. His
nephew, John Herber, gave him a
jump start then he went out for
dinner. He visited with Dale
Koehn, who was busy digging out
folks with his equipment, and Dale
cleaned snow away for Tony on his
way by.
Sunday after church, I visited
Dale and Cindy OConnell. Dale
had notes his grandmother had
written up for him about the West
Fork School District #91, three
pages of delightful, descriptive in-
formation about when they came
West in 1906. That manuscript is
priceless. Dale also shared with me
other scrapbooks his grandmother
had put together. Mrs. Mayme
Beaton taught Dales dad and fam-
ily in 1926 for the first year I think,
but she also taught our Marietta
School for a few years and went on
to teach Dale OConnell at the
West Fork School that was by the

member. I do and I understand.
Chinese Proverb.
Bill and I went to Philip for
lunch at the bowling alley and en-
joyed a visit with Loren and Rose
Kiel, as well as Rose Bennett.
There were a lot of things going on
in Philip in the afternoon, but Bill
wasnt up to spending the after-
noon in town, so we came on home.

The Philip Lady Scotties basket-
ball team hosted the Wall Eagles,
Monday, January 14, to varsity
and junior varsity games.
The varsity game was a close loss
for the Scotties. The first quarter
ended with Philip trailing by seven
points. By halftime that gap had
grown to nine points.
The third quarter was the start
of a rally by the Lady Scotties, who
closed the distance to just five
points. That challenge by Philip
continued, getting them within a
single point with less than a
minute on the clock. But, those last
few seconds of play tripped them
up. Wall closed the game with a six
point lead.

tively close loss for the Scotties.

three point difference, though
Philip was trailing. That three
point spread held on to halftime.
The third quarter saw a distancing
by the Kougars to a 10 point lead.
The Scotties shrank that to an

really challenge their opponents in
any kind of threatening comeback.

The District 14B Philip Lady
Scotties were hosted by the District
5B Sully Butte Chargers, Tuesday,
January 8, to a resounding loss.
The Scotties varsity team expe-
rienced a slow start, putting only
four points on the scoreboard in the
first quarter. The second, third and
fourth quarters were a bit better of-
fensively for Philip. Defensive play
remained about the same, and

Initiated during the 1996-97
school year, the South Dakota
High School Activity Associations
academic achievemnt team award
program is designed to recognize
varsity athletic teams and fine arts
groups for their academic excel-
lence. The SDHSAA believes that
high school students learn in two
distinct ways; inside the classroom
and outside the classroom on the
stage and/or athletic field.
Philip High School has six
groups that have earned the
award: oral interpretation team,
volleyball team, football team, all
state chorus, and both the boys
and girls cross country teams.
This academic program creates a
positive environment for school
teams to have its members excel in
the classroom. This program is also
meant to motivate students toward
academic excellence and to pro-
mote academic encouragement
from teammates.
All varsity athletic teams and
fine arts groups that participate in
Association sponsored activities
are eligible. Based on a duplicated
count, over 29,789 students partic-
ipate in interscholastic athletics
and over 28,613 more are involved
in fine arts activities. The academic
team award program provides high
school students with the opportu-
nity to prove they can be over-
whelmingly successful in both aca-
demics as well as in athletic and
fine arts activities.
All varsity athletic teams and
fine arts groups that achieve a com-
bined grade point average of 3.0 or
higher, are eligible to receive the
award. With the completion of all
fall athletic and fine arts activities,
the SDHSAA announces that the
schools and their teams on the at-
tached list have received the Aca-
demic Achievement Team Awards
for the 2012-2013 Fall season.
Philip teams earn SDHSAA
academic achievement honors

dents and their parents are
strongly encouraged to attend.
Junior students and their parents
are also invited, so they can get an
idea of what to expect for their sen-
ior year.

types of financial aid, how and
when to apply for financial aid,
where to go for help with the finan-
cial aid process, and much more.
Time will be made available for
questions and answers following

Philip competes in acalympics
Eleven six-student teams com-
peted in Pierres 2013 acalympics,
Wednesday, January 9.
Georgia Morse Middle School
hosted this first regional aca-
lympics (academic olympics). Mid-
dle school teams consisted of two
students from each grade level,
sixth through eighth. Those junior
high and middle schools competing
were Philip, White River, St.
Joseph Indian School Chamber-
lain, Highmore, Stanley County,
Mobridge, Miller, Kadoka Area,
Gettysburg, Timber Lake and
The six students representing
the Philip Junior High in this
years junior high/middle school
acalympics were Jasmine Fergu-
son, Morgan Cantrell, Tristen
Schofield, Colton Crimmins,
Damian Bartels and Riley Heltzel.
The competition consisted of two
rounds. Questions were taken from
math, language arts, science, social
studies, electives and current
The overall winning team, with
400 points, was from Miller. Pierre
placed second with 350 points and
Gettysburg placed third with 310
points. For many teams, this was
the first time competing in such a
competition. Many of these teams
will also be competing in the next
acalympic competition in White
River in March.
Kyley Cumbow, from Georgia
Morse Middle School, was one of
organizers of the acalympics. Cum-
bow stated, it was exciting that we
had so many teams and I thank
each of you for bringing a team.
Our Pierre team had a great time
and I hope that your six students
did, too. It is rewarding to watch
students compete in a different
manner (versus athletics). We hope
to see another great turnout for the
White River competition where the
traveling trophy will be up for
grabs again. Our plan is to host
this event again next year.
The Philip Scotties boys basket-
ball team competed in the Jones
County Invitational basketball
tournament, and came away with
third place.
According to head coach Mike
Baer, this ties their highest finish
ever. The last time was in 2010.
The chosen players for the first
all tournament team were Philips
Gunner Hook, Jones Countys
Philip Mathews, and White Rivers
Wyatt Krogman (most valuable
player), Nic Waln and Matt Gillen.
The chosen players for second all
tournament team were Philips
Thomas Doolittle, White Rivers
Tavis Burbank, Jones Countys
Gus Volmer, Lymans Jalani Uthe,
and Colomes Cole Raferman.
On Thursday, January 10, the
Scotties successfully went face to
face against the Lyman Raiders.
Philip had a good nine point lead
by the end of the first quarter. Be-
fore halftime, though, that cushion
thinned to only three points.
Hard play by both teams in the
third quarter still ended with a
three point spread. The fourth
quarter, again full of defensive and
offensive action, ended with the
Scotties still three points ahead for
the win.

Greetings from sunny, snow-cov-
ered, cool northeast Haakon
County. The sunshine is so nice
after the blustery weekend we had.
According to Marge Briggs, our
local weather data collector, we re-
ceived approximately four inches of
snow last weekend, amounting to
.29 inches of moisture. The wind
blew the snow into drifts, so it was
a little difficult to measure, but she
has a chart that helps her calculate
the amount. I know it sure seemed
like more than four inches when we
were scooping the deeper drifts off
the driveway! But whatever the
amount, it is good to have mois-
ture. Hopefully, the warmer tem-
peratures later in the week will put
a crust on the snow.
I think now that the holidays are
over, folks in our community are
staying home more, which means
less news from our part of the
world. I know we have been hun-
kered down a bit, taking care of
business and preparing for the up-
coming calving season. It is also
the time of year to get financial
records ready for the tax man not
my favorite activity, but it is neces-
sary. It is always a huge sigh of re-
lief when that task is done.
This is also the time of year for
the local actors and actresses to put
their talents to use, preparing for
the upcoming plays. The Milesville
play is coming up soon, and the
Hayes play cast has been practic-
ing for their upcoming production.
If you have a chance, I hope you'll
support these folks and go see the
plays it is a good chance to see
your friends and neighbors, the
productions are family friendly,
and the proceeds go to a good
Now on to the news.
Lola Roseth and her sisters,
Linda Smith and Gay Tollefson,
were in Rapid City last Thursday
visiting their mother, Joy Klima.
Dick and Gene Hudson were sup-
per guests of Duane and Lola Sun-
day. Lola also told me that their
daughter, Kayce (Roseth) Gerlach,
is now a senior partner in the
Casey Peterson and Associates ac-
counting firm in Rapid City. Con-
gratulations, Kayce!
The blowing snow and cold tem-
peratures changed travel plans for
Dick and Gene Hudson last week-
end. There were some social activi-
ties they planned to attend, but the
nasty weather convinced them to
stay home. Gene said they stay
busy taking care of livestock and
doing inside chores. Gene has un-
dertaken the task of going through
photos that her mother had, and
evidently there are lots of them.
Nels and Dorothy Paulson had a
quieter week this past week. Their
friend, Otis Funk, and some of his
relatives were out Sunday doing
some hunting, but Dorothy didn't
know if they were successful or not.
There was no church Sunday be-
cause Chauncey Jorgensen, who
was planning to preach, had a case
of strep throat. It sounds like Nels
may be able to get his tractor home
later this week, which will be a
good thing. He has been making do
with the dozer tractor, but he'll be
glad to have the loader tractor
Billy and Arlyne were also able
to stay home all week. Arlyne said
she has been waiting for a week
like this since last October! Dick
and Gene Hudson stopped in for af-
ternoon coffee and visiting one day
last week. Other than that, Arlyne
said they have been taking care of
chores and watching lots of tele-
vised sports.
Coreen and Julian Roseth also
stayed home during the stormy
weekend, so there was no news
from their house.
Happy belated anniversary to
Kevin and Mary Neuhauser! To
celebrate, Kevin and Mary went to
Deadwood Saturday afternoon and
spent the night. Sunday, they went
to Spearfish and dropped off some
furniture for their daughter,
Sarah, prior to returning to the
Frank and Shirley Halligan trav-
eled to Rapid City last Saturday to
watch the West River Basketball
Tournament. Shirley said the
roads were fine, and actually the
roads got better the further west
they went. Their grandson J.J. is a
member of the Faith team, and
Faith won the tournament. Con-
gratulations to J.J. who was named
to the all tournament team! Frank
and Shirley returned home Sun-
Clark and Carmen Alleman had
company Monday. Their grand-
daughter, Alivya, spent the day
with them while her parents were
in Philip. Other than that, Carmen
said her time has been occupied
with bookwork.
Max and Joyce Jones were sup-
per guests at the home of their son,
Todd, and his family Saturday. It
was an early birthday supper to
celebrate Joyce's birthday. Joyce
didn't tell me her age, but she did
say she is now on Medicare! While
at Todd and Darcy's home, they
helped the grandkids work on some
puzzles they received for Christ-
mas. Joyce said granddaughter
Mattie is doing well with her piano
lessons she is very faithful about
Ray and Nancy Neuhauser
stayed home most of the week, be-
cause Ray has been under the
weather. He went to the doctor and
found out that he had sinus infec-
tion, and thankfully the antibiotics
are helping him feel much better.
One of Nancy's granddaughters
spent part of the weekend with
them, and another granddaughter
stopped by to visit on Saturday.
Monday, Nancy had a coffee date
with some friends from the senior
Jon and Connie Johnson's boys
have been busy. Their son, Wyatt,
returned to his studies at South
Dakota State University last
Wednesday and is beginning his
second semester there. Avery, who
is a student at Philip High School,
spent the weekend in Denver. He
had won a judging competition at
the South Dakota State Fair last
summer, which entitled him to go
to Denver to do judging at the Na-
tional Western Roundup and the
Denver stock show. He spent last
Wednesday night with family
friends in Rapid City, then joined a
group from South Dakota and trav-
eled on to Denver. They returned to
the state Sunday. Noah had BB
gun practice at Kirley Hall Sunday,
but Monday he was under the
weather. Connie said that several
of the students at Cheyenne School
have been sick I guess it is the
season for colds and flu.
Lee and Mary Briggs spent Tues-
day night with Lil Briggs, and
Mary spent Thursday night with
Lil. Lil is now staying in her own
home, with the help of family. Lil's
physical therapist comes a couple
of times a week, and a home health
nurse also helps with some of Lil's
care. It is nice for Lil to be able to
be home, and the family appreci-
ates the opportunity to spend time
with her. Friday morning, Mary
picked up some groceries and
headed to the ranch, making it
home before the bad weather set in.
Sunday, Mary traveled to White-
wood to pick up her daughter, Keva
Joens, then the ladies went to
Rapid City. Mary needed to get
more tile for the remodel project in
her basement bathroom. She said
it is coming right along, and she
can't wait until it is all done.
When Mary and Keva returned to
Whitewood, Keva's sons were
home, so Mary had a chance to see
them. The boys had been busy
Seth was working at a roping in
Rapid City, and Zane was working
out, staying in shape for wrestling
season. Mary returned home later
Marge Briggs submitted the fol-
lowing weather data: December,
2012 The high temperature for
the month was 63 on the 2nd. We
had four days of 50 or above, and
seven days of 40 or above. The low-
est maximum temperature was 7
on the 24th.
The low temperature for the
month was -9 on the 24th, and we
had six times zero or below, and 15
times 10 or below.
The average high was 30, and
the average low was 10, giving us
an average temperature of 20 for
the month.
Precipitation for the month was
.41 inches, and the normal precipi-
tation is .50 inches, leaving us .09
inches below normal for the month
of December.
Precipitation to date for 2012 is
11.12 inches, and normal precipita-
tion is 16.38 inches, leaving us 5.26
inches below normal for the year.
According to Marge, that is 67.88
percent of normal.
Snowfall for the winter (Nov.-
Dec.) is 5.1 inches.
Info for calendar year 2012. If it
seemed like a hot, dry summer,
Marge's data will confirm it! The
high temperature in March was
85, and we had five days of 80 or
above. In April, the highest tem-
perature was 92, and we had two
days of 90 or above. For May, the
highest temperature was 97, and
we had two days of 90 or above. In
June, the highest temperature was
103, and we had 13 days of 90 or
above. The lowest maximum tem-
perature in June (or coolest hot
day) was 81. In July, the highest
temperature was 109, which was
the highest for the year. Also dur-
ing July, we had five days of 105
or above, and 14 days of 100 or
above. The lowest maximum in
July was 72. In August, the high-
est temperature was 108, with
four days of 100 or above, and 18
days of 90 or above. For Septem-
ber, the highest temperature was
104, and we had two days of 100
or above. All told, we had 21 days
with temperatures 100 or higher,
and Marge said she believes that is
a record for our area. On a cooler
note, snowfall for the 2012 calen-
dar year was 21 inches.
After looking at those tempera-
tures, it is no wonder that the gar-
dens struggled to produce last sum-
mer. Hopefully this year will be
better! Thanks to Marge for this in-
Our week was relatively quiet. I
was in Pierre Wednesday, and I
stopped for a visit with Ray and
Nancy Neuhauser. Also on
Wednesday, Randy hosted a card
game in the shop. Our son-in-law,
Ross Tschetter, was here Wednes-
day and Thursday doing some deer
hunting. He returned to his home
in Salem Thursday evening, so he
avoided our winter weather Friday.
Our weekend was spent feeding
livestock and watching our teams
lose their football games. Now I
have to decide who to cheer for!
Clint and Laura had another
busy week, with chores, beautiful
weather, snow and daughter
Alivya keeping them on their toes.
Clint and Laura kept appoint-
ments in Pierre Monday and then
drove to Wessington Springs to
check calves at the feedlot. Alivya
stayed with Grandma Joy Yost
while Clint and Laura were on the
road. Tuesday, Alivya spent some
time with Grandma Carmen, so
Laura had some time to get some
housework completed. Laura said
the weather was so beautiful she
coulnd't help but open up the win-
dows and get every-
thing cleaned up after
the holidays. Wednes-
day evening, Laura
had play practice, and
Clint and Alivya had
fun at home. The
weather turned cold
and nasty Friday, but
Saturday neighbors,
Vince and Katie
Bruce, came through
the snow for a visit.
Sunday, Laura made
meals for both sets of
parents and delivered
them before going to
the Hayes Hall meet-
ing and play practice.
Laura said the play is
coming along nicely
and they have a fun
group of people. Clint,
Laura and Alivya had
supper with the Yosts
before returning home Sunday
This week, I am grateful for
books. It is so relaxing, this time of
year, to curl up under an afghan
with a good book! Whether I am
reading to learn or reading to be
entertained, I love books! I recently
reread a publication compiled by
my cousin, giving a history of my
father's side of the family. It is fas-
cinating reading I have awesome
ancestors. And right now I am
reading about what life is like in
FLDS homes where they practice
plural marriage. I can tell you for
sure that I would be a total failure
in that situation! Reading improves
(and exercises) my mind, and it
broadens my perspective. I know
that I will never travel to all the
areas I'm interested in, but I can
read about them and almost feel
like I am there. One thing is for
sure education doesn't stop when
you are no longer in school. No one
can limit your learning except for
I hope that you are making the
most of 2013 let's make this the
best year yet! Enjoy your week.
