The Casey Tibbs Foundation is
excited to announce plans to create
a Sculpture Garden that will open
this summer at the Casey Tibbs
South Dakota Rodeo Center in Ft
Pierre. This historic project was
conceived by the late Johnny Smith
who envisioned a “garden of
bronzes” to recognize the many
saddle bronc champions from
South Dakota. Smith, a former
Casey Tibbs Foundation Board
member was an avid supporter of
rodeo and was well know through-
out the state for his 40+ years in
the livestock sales business
“We are excited to have this ad-
dition to the Rodeo Center site,”
said Director Cindy Bahe. “It will
feature the large bronze statue of
five-time world champion saddle
bronc rider, Billy Etbauer. The gar-
den, which will be located on the
north side of the building, will be
built with long-term plans to ac-
commodate two additional
bronzes.” The garden will also
serve as a gathering area for recep-
tions and special events at the
Rodeo Center.
Rodeo fans can help build the
sculpture garden by purchasing an
engraved brick to be installed in
the garden floor. “Purchasers can
choose the text, brand or logo they
prefer to have etched into the
brick,” said Bahe. “It will be a great
way to preserve a family’s name or
brand.” Businesses can get their
company name and/or logo etched
into bricks as well.
“The sculpture garden and large
statue will be unveiled on Satur-
day, June 1, 2013,” said Board
President Dayle Angyal. “We are
planning a special event in the af-
ternoon at the Rodeo Center in con-
junction with the 20th annual
Match of Champions bronc match
that will take place later that
evening at the Stanley County
Fairgrounds. It will be an exciting
day of western culture and bronc
The large statue of Billy Etbauer
scoring an 89 on Harry Vold’s great
saddle bronc, Painted Valley, to win
the 2009 Cheyenne Frontier Days
saddle bronc event, is being created
by Tony Chytka. It is being funded
by the proceeds from sales of
smaller bronze replicas. A limited
number of the small bronze statues
are still available for sale.
“The sculpture garden is a great
way to preserve South Dakota’s
saddle bronc heritage” said Board
Member and project leader, Tom
Bown. “South Dakota has had
more saddle bronc champions than
any other state, and still produces
some of the best saddle broncs in
professional rodeo. We created the
sculpture garden to provide a way
to recognize these champions.”
Interested parties can contact
the Rodeo Center for more informa-
tion about the sculpture garden
bricks, small bronze replicas or any
pertinent information.

Betty VanderMay
was born to Edward
and Elizabeth Nemec
on April 6, 1930 at
the St. Mary’s Hospi-
tal in Pierre.
She was the old-
est of sixteen siblings
-- seven boys and
nine girls.
Betty recalled
that they would walk
two and one-half
miles to the Phoeba
School in Stanley
During high
school she lived with
friends and worked
for her room and
board. Then she at-
tended summer
school in Spearfish
for two years. There,
she earned a permit to teach in a country school each year.
Then she met her special man, Loyd VanderMay, and they married on
July 1, 1950 at the St. Elizabeths Catholic Church in Midland. They settled
down in Washabaugh County.
Coming from a large family, Betty and Loyd kept the tradition and
had 12 children -- five sons and seven daughters -- Kay, Chuck, Mary,
Marge, John, Angie, Pat, Dan, Steve, Suzanne and the twins Jan and Joan.
On the ranch they raised cattle, wheat and alfalfa.
When her husband was called home by the Lord in 1993, Betty said
her friends put her name in for Jackson County Commissioner. She
served two terms (eight years). She has also been on the Kadoka Nursing
Home Board of Directors for 18 consecutive years.
Betty is a member of Our Lady of Victory Catholic Church in Kadoka,
where she served on the parish council for one term. Betty also belongs
to the Long Valley Birthday Club.
She said she likes to embroider, work crossword puzzles, play pitch,
read and pray for requests and family.
“Every September the eight living Nemec sisters have a weekend
sleep over,” she said. “And there’s no guys allowed. That is so much
She also recalled that back in the “olden” days they had big holiday
dinners and that was always so exciting.
Today she is proud to be the grandmother of 43 grandchildren and 48
A special memory that stands out, she said was when my dad, Edward
Nemec, put her hand in Loyd’s at the alter before our marriage.
Congratulations, Betty, for being the February Resident of the Month
at the Kadoka Nursing Home.
”Betty is the biggest supporter of this facility as a community member
and also a resident. She now gets to sit back and enjoy all the hard work
she put in here at the Kadoka Nursing Home. It is a joy to see her smiling
face every day at this facility,” said Heidi Coller.

Visiting South Dakota’s Capitol
building is like going on a treasure
People search for sky blue tiles
in the terrazzo tile floors.
Almost all the marble tiles in
the Capitol’s floors are yellow, rust,
white, black, tan and green – al-
most, because 66 of them are said
to be blue. The story goes that each
of the 66 Italian workers who laid
the floor during the Capitol’s 1905-
1910 construction was given a blue
stone to place anywhere in the
Capitol as a “signature stone.” To
date, 57 of the tiles have been
found. It’s a story that causes visi-
tors to the Capitol to look for the
special tiles, and it might be just
that – a story. Interviews with men
who helped construct the building
say nothing about Italian crafts-
men working on it, and people look-
ing at records say they can find no
evidence of the craftsmen having
stayed in Pierre.
The blue tiles are not the only
point of interest in the Capitol.
The grand stairway leads from
the second to the third floor. Many
of the people who tread where gov-
ernors and legislators have trod do
not notice that a baluster or spin-
dle is upside down. They may be-
lieve that workers accidentally put
the baluster in wrong, and did not
notice the mistake until it was too
late to correct the error. Not so, ac-
cording to one researcher on the
Capitol’s history. In The South
Dakota State Capitol: The First
Century, Marshall Damgaard
writes, “During the time that this
building was constructed, artisans
commonly inverted a single balus-
ter on a stairway in impressive
buildings to symbolize the belief
that only God can attain perfection.
It is no coincidence that the in-
verted baluster is the third one
down on the right, symbolizing the
Holy Trinity.”
Incidentally, South Dakota’s
statehouse is not the only one with
an inverted spindle. According to
Richard R. Gibson’s A Celebration
of State Capitols, a lone spindle in
the Wyoming’s Capitol is upside
down. The staircase was built by
Amish craftsmen, who placed it up-
side down to remind all who pass
by it that no person or law is per-

Acts 9:1-20
Many Christians like playing it safe by gathering as
many facts as possible, analyzing the options, and mak-
ing choices in order to be reasonably certain of the out-
come. We tend to label risk “undesirable” because it
could end up causing loss and heartache; we fear unwanted results as much as we dread missing out on
our dreams. But not only that—we are also afraid of looking foolish or incompetent, incurring financial
difficulty, or facing physical danger. From a human viewpoint, eliminating uncertainty makes sense.
But what is God’s perspective? Are there times that Christians are to take risks? The answer is a re-
sounding yes, when He is the one asking us to step out of our comfort zone. From the Lord’s viewpoint,
there is no uncertainty, because He has control over all things and He will never fail to accomplish His
good purposes (Eph. 1:11).
The Bible is full of real people who took risks to obey the Lord. One was Ananias, whom God sent to
minister to the newly converted Saul. Ananias risked his reputation and his life to comply. Another was
Saul himself, who was told to preach to the Jews the very gospel he and they had so violently opposed.
By focusing on God, His character, and His promises, both men obeyed despite uncertainty, doubt, and
Spiritual maturity is hampered when the Christian refuses to obey God. Sometimes that involves leav-
ing what is safe or familiar. What risk is the Lord calling you to take? He understands your wariness,
but He’ll never let you down. Step out in obedience, and watch what He does to grow your faith.
Taking Risks
Inspiration Point
Halitosis is a fishy and fancy
medical word that stands for bad
breath. Years ago I heard it put
this way: “The Polish Army must
have marched through my mouth
last night.” Not only is it socially
offensive, a foul odor coming from
between the lips can also reflect a
serious underlying dental or med-
ical problem.
Probably the most significant
cause for bad breath is dry mouth
and coated tongue, often resulting
from medicines like decongestants
for stuffy nose or pills for urinary
incontinence. Dry mouth can also
be due to mouth breathing, aging,
or to an immune disease, which af-
fects the salivary glands. No mat-
ter the cause, without saliva not
only will the breath turn foul, but
teeth fall out. Treat this by avoid-
ing mouth-drying medicines when
possible, sucking on sugar-free
lemon drops or gum, and consult-
ing a physician or dentist. Also
brushing the tongue to remove the
“coat” will go a long way to im-
prove one’s breath.
Periodontal disease with plaque,
gingivitis or bacterial infection in
sinuses or the lung can certainly
cause the odor of rotting. Regular
dental and medical health care can
help avoid or treat these condi-
It almost goes without saying
that smoking or smokeless tobacco
causes doggy breath. Avoid these
bad habits.
Of course garlic and onion give
their odor after absorption into
your bloodstream, which is carried
to the lungs, and then transferred
to the breath. Mouthwash or mints
will only cover-up until time re-
solves the odor by breaking the
chemical down that is being car-
ried in the blood stream.
You can escape the plodding Pol-
ish Army… Remember that bad
breath makes a compelling case for
good brushing and flossing habits
and for regular dental and medical

Soon the Senate will hear
HB1087, the so-called Sentinel Bill
which would allow teachers, ad-
ministrators, or staff to become
“authorized personnel” and carry a
gun in school if the local school
board approves. I believe that cur-
rent law is adequate in that it al-
ready allows schools to have a
school resource officer. An officer of
the law should be the only “autho-
rized” person with a weapon on
school grounds. While we all want
to keep kids safe, I believe that al-
lowing teachers and staff to carry
guns in schools only increases the
possibility of accident, liability, and
will likely create intense public
pressure whatever the local board
decides. This passed 42-27 in the
House and now it will be up to the
Proponents claim that schools
are known to be gun-free zones and
this increases our children’s vul-
nerability. But almost all places
where families gather are likely to
be gun free. How far do we go?
Should we make sure armed volun-
teers are at each of our church
services, Sunday Schools, ball
games, city parks, movie theatres
and pizza places? Do we really
want our children to feel that their
SD school is so at-risk that we
must allow teachers to carry
weapons? There’s a lot to think
about, but let’s not forget to think
about who really matters -- our
kids and grandkids and how this
will make them feel.

We’ve just completed our 4th
week of the 2013 Session. In the
Senate Health and Judiciary Com-
mittees on which I serve, we have
been seeing an increase of bills to
review. As a rancher myself, I know
the importance of agriculture to
our SD economy. I’d like to share a
few facts which highlight just how
important this industry is to our
Ag is SD’s #1 industry with a
$20.9 billion dollar economic im-
pact. In 2012, no state in the coun-
try derived a larger percentage of
its Gross Domestic Product from
agriculture than SD. We actually
get 10.9% of our GDP from Agricul-
ture. The SD Department of Agri-
culture works to promote and
develop agriculture as well manage
divisions within the department
such as conservation and forestry,
wildland fires and the State Fair.
The SD Department of Ag re-
ceives a total of $16.6 million for
operations ($5.7 million of its fund-
ing from the federal government;
$3.8 million from the State General
Fund; and $6.7 million from Other
Sources). These other sources are
primarily check off dollars for com-
modity education and promotion
programs. Each and every pro-
ducer in South Dakota who pays a
check off fee contributes to the
work of promoting our agriculture
commodities. Some of the goals for
the Department of Ag in the future
will continue to focus on facilitating
increased livestock production in
SD. Those of you interested in
hearing more on this topic should
consider attending one SD Dept. of
Ag’s meetings, “Next Generation of
Livestock Production.” These fo-
rums are held in conjunction with
SDSU. The two meetings closest to
our District will be Feb. 28 at Kim-

Another busy week at Pierre. On
Tuesday HB 1119 and HB 1133
were brought to the education com-
mittee. HB 1119 was brought be-
fore the education committee by
prime sponsor Rep. Kathy Tyler,
District 4. This bill would have es-
tablished a school-to-work grant
program in the Department of Ed-
ucation. The purpose of the grant
program was to support partner-
ships among school districts, local
employers, and communities that
are formed to assist high school
seniors, who may not pursue post-
secondary education, in their tran-
sition from high school to the
workforce. HB 1133 was presented
by prime sponsor, Rep. Munstrom,
District 7. This bill was to establish
an innovation grant program for
school districts. Both bills had pos-
itive points, but neither bill had a
dollar amount to implement the
programs. Both bills were moved to
the 41st day.
I was scheduled to introduce a
bill to Education Committee on the
6th of February, but due to another
bill being moved from the schedule
I was asked to present it this week.
HB 1176 was to define the word
truant. The state of South Dakota
does not have a definition of truant
on the books. Twenty-six states
have a definition of truant and
three of those states are North
Dakota, Minnesota and Wyoming.
The Department Of Ed. came out
to oppose the bill, stating, “They
want it left up to local control.” My
intent was for the State of South
Dakota to send a clear message on
the importance of children attend-
ing school on a regular basis. Our
teachers are expected to meet stan-
dards on mandated student assess-
ment tests and we need to give
them every opportunity to meet
those expectations. HB 1176 was a
bill that was no cost to the taxpay-
ers while sending a strong message
of importance on regular student
attendance. The bill was moved to
the 41st day by a vote of 10 yea and
5 nay. I will reintroduce it again
next year.

Regional Hospital. This tragic loss
is immeasurable for her family, her
friends, and her community.
Miriam was born in St. Cloud,
Minn. on January 15, 1935, to
Newton and Louise (Howe) Olson,
but she was a South Dakota girl
through and through. She gradu-
ated from Rapid City Central in
1952, and after a brief stint trying
out the "big city" life in Minneapo-
lis, she returned to Philip, S.D. in
the summer of 1954 where she met
and married Morris Gene Hallock.
The love affair that was Morris
and Miriam's marriage spanned
almost 60 years and in the end em-
bodied all that Miriam was - a tire-
less, supportive, and loving wife
who journeyed through a life of
service, and publishing with her
husband always maintaining a
strong personal identity of her
Miriam found incredible joy in
music and bridge. She believed un-
equivocally in her God and encour-
aged all those around her to find
solace and peace through atten-
dance, worship, and involvement
at church. Miriam also found ways
to help her community whether it
was to deliver a meal to a soul that
found themselves shut-in, raise
money for disabled children or
visit a friend that needed comfort
and love; she was a relentless and
ever present force in the lives of
those around her.
Miriam was also the mother of
three girls that she loved to the
very depths of her being. Uncondi-
tional is the only way to describe
the relationships she had with her
children and by extension, those
loved by her children. She opened
her heart and home to all that
touched her family's life with gra-
ciousness, food and a place to lay
their heads, knowing they were
safe because Miriam was there-
steady, strong and sure.
In 1983, Miriam became Nana
with the birth of her first grand-
child, and though it is hard to be-
lieve that a person so giving could
become even more so, Miriam did.
To the very last day of Miriam's
life, she was working to make the
lives of those around her easier.
She is survived by her husband,
Morris G.Hallock, Sturgis; daugh-
ters, Debra (Walter) Shine, San
Rafael, CA, Lori (Chuck) Kaiser,
Fallon, NV, Karen Hallock, Rapid
City, SD, and Chris Brady,
Modesto, CA; and her grandchil-
dren, Devin Bearden, San Rafael,
CA, Tessa (Luke) Mickelson, Rapid
City, Chase Kaiser, Fallon, NV,
and Matthew Hallock Kaiser, Fal-
lon, NV.

Back at home, Terry, Chloe and
Cella are into school and the nor-
mal routine. Their only concession
to the Super Bowl on Sunday was
to put a bowl of chips and dip on
the table for snacking.
Lee Addison and Rhonda
watched the Super Bowl on Sunday
with guest, Charlene Ceniceros.
Lee and Charlene were rooting for
the 49ers while Rhonda was cheer-
ing for the Ravens. Rhonda said
she was alone on this one.
John, Samantha and Koye Addi-
son attended the rodeo at the stock
show on Friday. John competed in
the bareback part of the rodeo but
said he didn’t have much luck and
got no big bucks. He did say it was
nice to be doing okay physically so
he could ride again after some
shoulder trouble last year. He
didn’t get any more injuries on Fri-
day. Son Koye is now coming two in
April. He is working on some words
and is especially good at being busy
enough that he is sometimes hard
to keep up with.
Georgann Addison was in Rapid
City at the Events Center on Sun-
day competing in barrel racing.
While she was gone, Jim and Jami
watched the Super Bowl. Jim said
he thought they really should
schedule the Super Bowl on Mon-
days and declare it a national holi-
day. On Saturday, Jim and Jami
were back on the basketball trail
with a journey to Highmore. Jami
was helping the team while Jim
was on the bleachers observing.
Francie Davis went to Rapid
City on Sunday in preparation for
catching a flight to Arizona with a
friend on Monday. The gals are
going to take part in an obstacle
three-mile marathon. Francie has
done this before and liked it well
enough to have another go at it.
Chad and boys stayed at home to
look after things there.
Larry Grimme was in Yankton
this weekend and stayed with his
son, Michael, and also visiting his
other son. He went in part to at-
tend the funeral of his friend, Kent
Wintersteen, at Olivet. Larry
taught school at Scotland for a cou-
ple of years and made friends in
the area. He taught Kent’s daugh-
ter. Kent liked one of Larry’s origi-
nal songs entitled “Dakota Land”
and wanted it sung at his funeral
so Larry did that. Kent was known
as a businessman and also for hav-
ing one of the best collections of In-
dian artifacts in the area. Larry
said Kent was a nice guy and one
of those people who made you feel
special when he talked to you.
Kenny and Roxie Fox spent a
good part of last week at the stock
show in Rapid City. Kenny helped
man the Stockgrowers booth, but
they also found time to attend the
matched-bronc rides on both Tues-
day and Wednesday. Kenny said
both were really good. Son Jesse
met them at the stock show and
then came back to the ranch to help
his brother, Wade, celebrate his
thirtieth birthday. Wade, this week,
was pleased to get in some produc-
tive ice fishing at a dam where the
perch were biting like mad. He did
not want the location of his suc-
cessful fishing expedition pub-
lished widely since he might want
to go back and angle for more.
Chuck, Eve and Abby Fortune
also took in the stock show on both
Tuesday and Wednesday. They
stayed overnight and took in the
ranch rodeo on Tuesday evening
which was lots of fun. Chuck re-
turned by himself on Friday to at-
tend a horsemanship clinic. The
clinic was fine, but three days in
the city during one week were al-
most too much for him. He reported
on the phone to Eve on the way
home, anyway, that he was “tired of
cars and people, people and cars.”
Dana Badure started work at
Discount Fuel in Kadoka this
week. She does either morning or
afternoon shifts on five days a week
as worked around school for the
kids. So far it’s going okay. Things
are helped by niece Felicia who is
living with them at present and
helping with housework and child-
care. Dana reports they now have
ten kids on the ground (goats, not
children) with about four more ex-
pected. This includes four sets of
twins. On Sunday afternoon, the
Badures hosted a Super-Bowl
party that was attended by Randy
Peters, Eric and Pam Osborn and
Wayne Hindman. Greg said there
are two occasions during the year
that require a party—namely the
Super Bowl and the National Fi-
nals Rodeo.
Chuck and Merry Willard went
to Rapid City on Thursday. Accord-
ing to Merry, the roads were not
that good in her opinion, but they
hated to miss an appointment they
had for service on their car. After
that, Chuck checked out the stock
show while Merry visited fabric
stores and other places. Chuck is
doing well with his recent hip re-
placement and weaning himself off
walkers, crutches, etc., but he was
fairly tired when Merry picked him
back up from the show. Back at the
ranch, son Casey came on Satur-
day and stayed overnight. He came
partly to attend an auction at
Whitewood near Sturgis. This
week, Chuck has a four-week
checkup with his surgeon in Rapid.
Chris Baldwin is currently in
Robert and Sharon Ring's fur-
nace has been giving them trouble,
and two guys were there working
on it and had lunch with them
Wednesday. Jessie dropped Jeremy
and Tyler off after school that after-
noon, so they were supper guests
there that evening. Friday and Sat-
urday the repairman was there
again trying to get the furnace
working correctly.
Rueben and Jan Ring traveled
to Kadoka Thursday for the double
header basket ball games - both
boys and girls played.
Bruce Ring has been a regular
traveler to Rapid City lately - mak-
ing three trips in the last two
weeks. Wednesday, January 23 he
was there for applicator's license
training, and Friday the 25th they
had an appointment with the eye
doctor. It was back again on his
birthday, January 31, this time to
run some errands, and to meet
June's plane, as she flew back
home from Seabeck, Washington,
where she has been ever since De-
cember 15, helping out in the
Daniel Ring home while Michelle
was in the hospital, awaiting the
birth of their fourth child. After
three boys, this time a little girl ar-
rived! Grace Elyse joins brothers
Jake (10), Gabe (8) and Noah (6).
Grace was born on Friday, January
18, 2013. Bruce and June cele-
brated Bruce's birthday by joining
Rob, Peggy and Kenneth Roberts
for a barbecue supper at Famous
Daves that evening.
Having read the book, The Blind
Side, and also having watched the
movie, June became a fan of
Michael Oher and the Baltimore
Ravens, and watched the Super
Bowl with a lot more attention
than usual Sunday night. Bruce,
Stephanie and Ryan came over and
joined her for popcorn in the second
half of the game. Having only lis-
tened on the radio out at Daniel's
for the play-off games, it was a
treat to watch Michael in action on
television this time.

calls, and letters, I, along with Sen-
ator Johnson, Representative
Noem, Governor Daugaard and
representatives from Save the VA
committee, met with VA Secretary
Eric Shinseki on January 28, 2013.
The meeting, originally scheduled
for 45 minutes, lasted about an
hour and a half, giving the Save
the VA representatives the oppor-
tunity to thoroughly present their
case to the Secretary.
Their presentation was well-de-
livered and their passion for help-
ing veterans and their community
was clear. In fact, Senator Johanns
of Nebraska, who was also in atten-
dance, noted how strongly the com-
munity of Hot Springs supports the
VA hospital. The Save the VA rep-
resentatives asked the Secretary to
consider the points they raised, and
while they asked that he withdraw
the original proposal, they made it
clear that they are willing to nego-
tiate with the Secretary on their
I appreciate Secretary Shinseki
taking the time to attend this
meeting and the attention he gave
to the presentation. While the
timeline for a decision remains un-
clear, I remain committed to ensur-
ing that the VA will continue to
meet the important health care
needs of area veterans.
In December of 2011, the De-
partment of Veterans Affairs (VA)
announced its intention to reconfig-
ure the VA Black Hills Health Care
System services located in Hot
Springs, Fort Meade, and Rapid
City. The proposal sparked great
concern throughout Hot Springs
and the surrounding communities
about how the VA changes would
affect the quality and availability
of health care for thousands of area
veterans who rely on these facili-
ties. These veterans, many of
whom already face financial and
transportation-related challenges,
would be forced to travel an addi-
tional 1.5 hours for care at a VA
hospital. In Pine Ridge for exam-
ple, veterans worry that without
access to the Hot Springs VA they
will have to rely on the already
overburdened Indian Health Serv-
ice or face significant travel bur-
dens to try to meet their health
care needs.
I understand the obstacles that
closing this facility pose to provid-
ing our veterans with the highest
quality health care, and since the
proposal was announced I have re-
mained adamant that the voices of
our veterans and the Hot Springs
community must be a part of any

By Senator John Thune
Are there any jobs or chores you
simply hate to do? Most of us have
some things that we dislike
enough that it’s hard to talk our-
selves into doing them. Take the
long old census form that sat on
my desk forever before I could
dredge up the wherewithal to deal
with it. I knew from experience
that it was a royal pain in the
backside so I wasn’t eager to get
Nevertheless, the deadline was
getting close, and, if you don’t get
the form submitted on time, the
census bureau sends a second one
with strong admonitions to get
with the program. It also reminds
you that this is not voluntary but
required by law. This rankles a lit-
tle because I somehow thought the
purpose of the census was to count
people, not cattle, horses, bees and
every other tiny little detail in-
volved in agriculture. As you know,
the government, given the slight-
opportunity, can completely exceed
their bounds and make a simple
assignment into a major undertak-
ing. I guess I feel a little like cur-
mudgeon-neighbor Jim who, when
getting a census form to fill out,
used to simply write on it, “None of
your blankety-blank business,”
and send it back. I don’t know if
that worked or not, but I do agree
with the sentiment.
Not being quite as brave as Jim,
however, I did summon up a bit of
ambition on Tuesday and got the
task underway. Did I mention that
the census form runs to twenty-
four pages and asks you about
every acre you operate and every
hog and berry you raise? Well it
does. It’s a real mind bender be-
cause I’m not always completely
sure how much hay we put up per
acre last year or the exact number
of critters we have, broken down
by age and weight. Mostly I esti-
mate. The world probably won’t
end if I get it slightly wrong. I do
cheat, of course, in that I dig out
the last form I did some five years
ago so I don’t have to recalculate
what acres are in fields, hay or
pasture. Consulting the old ques-
tionnaire also makes it so I don’t
have to figure our grain-storage
capacity once again. That involves
counting our six steel bins, multi-
plying the number of rings they
have by 550, and remembering
that one bin has six rings instead
of five. If you peak the bins up,
that adds another 250 to 300
bushels per bin, but you’re not re-
ally supposed to peak bins much if
you want to avoid bug problems so
I just figure capacity without
peaks. This, by the way, is only one
of the many decisions about fig-
ures you encounter here which
make this paper task a headache
and something to be avoided as
long as possible.
The job did eventually get done
after a certain amount of mutter-
ing and fussing around, thank
goodness, and I shouldn’t have to
deal with it all for another five
years or so. That will be soon
enough, I assure you. I probably
should mention that I slightly en-
joyed part of this chore in that,
after filling out the paper form, I
went online and submitted the
form electronically. Computer
work can be kind of fun, and it was
slightly necessary anyway since I’d
made a mess of the paper form by
making mistakes in ink, crossing
out, correcting etc. I hate to admit
it, but the computer part was
somewhat enjoyable.
So, what other work might be
less than pleasurable? Some folks
detest cleaning barns or chicken
houses. The latter is particularly
disliked by many. It is rather an
itchy smelly business although I
don’t personally mind it over
much. Neither do I mind doing
dishes although cleaning bath-
rooms is not much fun. When I
lived in a little house in Georgia
with two other guys while we were
going to Navy supply school, our
bathroom there often got fairly
rank before we finally broke out
the cleaning supplies. When my
mother was in her last years, I had
to take on cleaning her bathroom
and didn’t care much for that ei-
ther although it wasn’t terrible. I
just didn’t enjoy it. Luckily, wife
Corinne always finds our bath-
rooms unacceptable around here
before I do so I haven’t had to deal
with toilet cleaning in recent times
which is just fine with me.
Somehow, I can often cope with
physical stuff better than with
mind games. That’s probably a
common trend and why doctors
and lawyers make the big bucks.
Few people want to attend enough
school to get into those professions
in the first place, and then the
work is difficult mentally. I guess
if you want to make a lot of money
you have to work in areas that re-
quire brain function more than
physical effort.
Now that the census form is
done, I can happily go on to other
work which unfortunately involves
doing a distressingly long tax re-
turn. Oh, my! Guess I’d better get
going on it since the deadline for
ranchers who don’t estimate taxes
is the first of March, and February
is a short month. After that,
though, I can think about planting
some tomatoes and cucumbers,
which is fun. I’m looking forward
to it. I might even wash the
pickup. Compared to census and
tax forms, those things will be a

Lookin’ Around

these programs will continue to
rise, the debt will continue to grow
and foreign nations like China will
continue to be the financiers of an
even larger part of our debt.
Difficult choices need to be
made. Change may bring a little
pain now, but this pain will prevent
our children and grandchildren
from paying a much higher price
for this generation's excesses.
South Dakotans know that it's time
for some old fashioned, Midwestern
wisdom to come to bear and help
straighten out our nation's finan-
cial challenges before it's too late.
As the lone representative for
South Dakota in the House, I will
continue to push that brand of wis-
dom at every turn. And I'll need
your help.
If you were unable to come to
one of my town hall meetings, I'd
love to hear from you. Please reach
out to one of my offices and let me
know what you think about what's
happening in the nation's capital
and how we can best serve your in-
terests and the interests of South
Dakota. There are plenty of issues,
including this one, that I'd like
your opinion on, not only for me,
but also for my colleagues in Con-
gress. You can contact any of my of-
One of the things I enjoy the
most about my job is the opportu-
nity to travel the state and meet
voters face-to-face. It gives me the
chance to hear people's frustrations
and hopes and to talk about com-
mon sense solutions to problems
facing the state and the nation. In
my recent town hall meetings, I
spoke to folks from both sides of the
river about a number of issues, but
concern over our mounting na-
tional debt was always one of the
first topics of conversation.
The spending habits of the na-
tional government are in stark con-
trast to what South Dakotans see
as responsible and expect of their
own finances. In order to equal the
irresponsibility coming from Wash-
ington, every family in this state
would have to spend $26,000 a year
outside of their ability to pay. It
seems unbelievable to most of us in
the state that there are politicians
who don't take an honest stand
against the runaway spending and
that far too many of them are
unashamedly cheering it on!
Part of the problem is that so
much of the national budget auto-
matically renews every year with
no changes, no cuts and no ac-
countability. Without real reform,

The stately columns inside the
Capitol appear to be marble. They
were constructed in scagliola. First,
the columns were created from
plaster and covered by marble
dust, ink and yarn. Once the mix-
ture hardened, it was polished to a
lustrous sheen that resembled
marble. The resulting columns cost
$100 each, whereas marble
columns would have cost up to
$1,000 each.
Some of the Capitol’s stained
glass windows honor the first set-
tlers in the state, according to Bar-
bara Johnson of Aberdeen. She is a
South Dakota Humanities Council
scholar who has researched for the
past five years the role stained
glass plays in buildings and how
stained glass reflects culture and
history. To Johnson, the fan-shaped
stained glass panel in the back of
the House chamber and the stained
glass panel dedicated to Gov.
George S. Mickelson and seven
other men who were killed in a
plane crash have motifs that re-
semble wingless water striders.
Johnson contends that the water
strider’s large eyes correspond to
two large circles in each motif,
while the insect’s front, middle and
hind legs match up with the swirls
in the motif. The water strider was
called a straddlebug by pioneers
who often saw it skittering across
the surface of the state’s lakes and
ponds. A straddlebug was also a
three boards set together in tripod
form and used by homesteaders to
show that a claim was occupied.
One more thing that those visit-
ing the Capitol might not realize is
that the Capitol Hill area was the
“Boot Hill” cemetery of early-day
Pierre. During the final grading
and landscaping around the Capi-
tol, workers unearthed a number of
pine coffins. A worker recognized
one of the skeletons as belonging to
Arkansaw, a desperado shot to
death by vigilantes at the foot of
Pierre Street in Pierre in 1881.

After two home games on Thrus-
day and Friday, the Lady Kougars
travelled to Highmore to take part
in the Action Club Basketball Clas-
sic. The Kougars were lined up to
play the Eureka-Bowdle Patriots.
The Kougars came out sluggish,
unable to hit their shots. Raven
Jorgensen did hit a three pointer in
the first quarter, but the Patriots
were able to outscore the Kougars
10-5 after the first eight minutes.
The second quarter had Marti
Herber hitting a three pointer to
get the team fired up for a bit, but
the team still wasn’t able to play to
their potential. They were able to
outscore the Patriots 9-7, but were
still behind 17-14 going into half
The Patriots came out of the
locker room after half time and
fired up the floor. The Patriot’s
Courtney Weber hit 10 points in
the third quarter, while the Lady
Kougars couldn’t get much momen-
tum going.
The Patriots ourscored the
Kougars 21-12 in the third quarter
and they never looked back.
The fourth quarter only had the
Kougars scoring five points and
going 1/9 from the free throw line.
The Patriots only had one basket
the whole fourth quarter and was
6/17 from the line.
The Patriots ended the game
with 18 fouls and were 11/28 from
the line. The Kougars had 26 fouls
and were a disappointing 5/23 from
the line. Marti and Kwincy led
scoring with 8 points, Taylor with
4, Katie, Raven and Tori with 3 and
Shaley with 2.
These three losses put the Lady
Kougars with a 6-10 record, with
four games left in the season.
This week the Kougars play
New Underwood on Tuesday, which
will be Parents’ Night for the girls.
On Friday, they travel to Colome.
The final week of the regular sea-
son had them travelling to Dupree

The Kadoka Lady Kougars
hosted the RC Christian Comets on
Thursday, January 31.
The first half of the game found
both teams playing neck and neck.
Kadoka kept their fouls in check
and the Comets were only 1/8 at
the line. Kadoka was able to make
it to the line, with Kwincy Fergu-
son going 4/6, Marti Herber 2/4,
Katie Lensegrav 2/2 and Destiny
Dale 0/1.
Katie put in two baskets, and
Marti, Taylor and Raven each a
basket to put them ahead 18-17 at
halftime. After half time, the
Kougars weren’t able to keep their
momentum going. They had trou-
ble stopping the Heard twins, who
are both over 6” tall. They fouled
and put the Comets on the line and
they made 12/16 free throws. De-
spite Taylors Merchen’s two, three
pointers and Tessa Stouts one,
three pointer, it wasn’t enough
spark to give the Kougars the win.
Katie Lensegrav led the Kougar
scoring with 13 points. Taylor fol-
lowed her with 12 points, and
Kwincy, Marti, Raven and Tessa
each had 4. The Kougars were
11/16 from the line and ended the
game with 19 total fouls.

haviors and not make comments
about their own weight, size or per-

deal with weight issues with chil-
dren is to make lifestyle changes as
a family and not focus on that par-
ticular child.
5. Be age appropriate. You can

Being negative – calling a child
fat – does not help with weight loss.
A big concern seen is people who
are overweight as children actually
suffer from eating disorders in
early adulthood at a higher rate
than the rest of the population.
This could be partially attributed
to self-esteem. Food is related to
people’s emotions, so many times
people eat because they are sad or
don't feel good about themselves;
attacking self-esteem does not help
the process.
Childhood obesity – and related
health issues – is most definitely a
scary problem, but the use of scare
tactics and name-calling will not
help children to get healthy and fit.
Instead, Dr. Caine-Bish offers a
more supportive and motivational

their children, but focus on health
instead of weight. It is important
for children to feel good about

different, which means the causes
for being overweight and the solu-
tions for losing weight will depend
on the particular child involved
and his or her environmental cir-

care response that includes a
physician, a psychiatrist and a die-
titian; it is essential to understand

The next night the boys faced
the Wall Eagles.
“This was a total turn around for
us from the night before. From
start to finish, the boys played with
energy and defensively played well
all night,” said Reiman. “On of-
fense, the third quarter was strug-
gle, but you could still see the effort
from the boys.”
Anderson once again led the
Kougars in the points column with

Wyatt Enders put in 4 apiece, Lane
Patterson and Ryder Sanftner had
3 apiece and Yuki Hotsumi was
good for 2. Patterson was 3/4 from

Tucker O’Rourke was high-point
man for the Eagles, scoring 11
points. Trevor Anderson and Lane
Hustead had 10 apiece.
The Kougars were 12/28 from

ESN Nitrogen Fertilizer
With fertilizer prices high and
producers becoming aware of the
potential for losses of Nitrogen due
to volatilization losses, there has-
been interest and questions about
ESN (Environmentally Smart Ni-
trogen) Nitrogen. ESN is a unique
product, featuring a polymer (plas-
tic) coating on the urea fertilizer
pellets, which delays the conver-
sion of the urea pellets to forms of
nitrogen that are susceptible to
loss through volatilization, denitri-
fication and leaching before con-
verting to the form that is
available to plants.
Recent studies indicate that
ESN does delay the release of ni-
trogen, but depending on the tim-
ing of application, temperature
and moisture conditions, may
delay the release too much for op-
timum yield. Studies were con-
ducted at two sites in South
Dakota, with nitrogen rates of 40,
60, 80 and 100 lbs/A compared to
no fertilizer. At each of these rates,
blends of 0, 50, 75 and 100% ESN
were applied, with urea making up
the other portion of the mix. Both
fall and spring application timings
were conducted as separate treat-
At one of the study sites in par-
ticular, as the percent of ESN in-
creased in the blend of each
nitrogen rate, yield decreased com-
pared to blends at the same rate
containing more urea. This de-
crease occurred more with the
spring application than the fall
timing, indicating the ESN was
not fully available when the wheat
plants needed nitrogen for maxi-
mum yield.
The claim of protein increases
in the grain held true, as grain
protein increased for each nitrogen
rate as the proportion of ESN in
the blend increased.
If winter wheat producers plan
to use ESN, it is recommended to
be applied in the fall, which will
allow time for the polymer coating
to be dissolved and the nitrogen to
be released in time for the plant to
fully utilize it. As applications are
considered during the winter or
early spring; on wheat that has
broken dormancy and is actively
growing, or just prior to jointing,
ESN could still be used, but is rec-
ommended to be blended in de-
creasing percentages of the
product applied. If ESN makes up
any significant percentage of the
urea applied in the spring, be
aware that it may not all become
available to the plant in time to
contribute to yield.
One additional concern poten-
tially exists when applying ESN.
Being a plastic coated product, it
floats. If a significant rainfall
event occurs that is intense
enough for water to run over the
soil surface, the pellets can be
transported downhill and carried
some distance away from where
they are applied.
ESN is also approximately 15%
higher in cost than urea, which
may prompt some producers to
apply a slightly higher rate of urea
in lieu of using the product or ac-
cept the risk of slightly lower yield
if some loss occurs. Following
sound principles in applying urea
when precipitation is likely to fol-
low, and shortly prior to when the
wheat plants will benefit from the
application will also help make the
best use of your fertilizer dollar.
When making Nitrogen applica-
tion rate decisions, taking soil
tests and basing the application
rates on laboratory analysis and
realistic yield goals is highly rec-
ommended. For information on fer-
tilizer recommendations, consult

Farm Service Agency An-
nounces Important
Program Updates
Jan. 22, 2013—The U.S. De-
partment of Agriculture’s Farm
Service Agency (FSA) reminds pro-
ducers that the American Tax-
payer Relief Act of 2012 extended
the authorization of the Food, Con-
servation, and Energy Act of 2008
(the 2008 Farm Bill) for many
Commodity Credit Corporation
(CCC) commodity, disaster, and
conservation programs through
2013. FSA administers these pro-
The extended programs include,
among others: the Direct and
Counter-Cyclical Payment Pro-
gram (DCP), the Average Crop
Revenue Election Program
(ACRE), and the Milk Income Loss
Contract Program (MILC). FSA is
preparing the following actions:
FSA will begin sign-ups for DCP
and ACRE for the 2013 crops on
Feb. 19, 2013. The DCP sign-up
period will end on Aug. 2, 2013; the
ACRE sign-up period will end on
June 3, 2013.
The 2013 DCP and ACRE pro-
gram provisions are unchanged
from 2012, except that all eligible
participants in 2013 may choose to
enroll in either DCP or ACRE for
the 2013 crop year. This means
that eligible producers who were
enrolled in ACRE in 2012 may
elect to enroll in DCP in 2013 or
may re-enroll in ACRE in 2013
(and vice versa).
All dairy producers’ MILC con-
tracts are automatically extended
to Sept. 30, 2013. Eligible produc-
ers therefore do not need to re-en-
roll in MILC. Specific details
regarding certain modifications to
MILC will be released soon.
FSA will provide producers with
information on program require-
ments, updates and signups as the
information becomes available.
Any additional details will be
posted on FSA’s website. For more

Assistance Program (NAP) pro-

low yields, loss of inventory or pre-
vented planting occur due to a nat-
ural disaster,
Applying for Coverage
Eligible producers must apply
for coverage of noninsurable crops
using Form CCC-471, "Application
for Coverage," and pay the applica-
ble service fee at the FSA office
where their farm records are
maintained. The application and
service fee must be filed by the ap-
MARCH 15 2013 as established by
the FSA State Committee. The
service fee is the lesser of $250 per
crop or $750 per producer per ad-
ministrative county, not to exceed
a total of $1,875 for a producer
with farming interests in multiple
How Much Loss NAP Covers
NAP covers the amount of loss
greater than 50 percent of the ex-
pected production based on the ap-
proved yield and reported acreage.
Risk Management Purchase
Requirement for
Other Programs
Noninsurable commodities on a
farm, except forage crops intended
for grazing, are required to have
NAP coverage in order for produc-
ers on that farm to be eligible for
the Supplemental Revenue Assis-
tance Payments (SURE) Program,
Tree Assistance Program (TAP)
and the Emergency Assistance for
Livestock, Honey Bees, and Farm-
raised Fish Program (ELAP). Pro-
ducers are required only to have
NAP coverage on the forage crop
acreage intended for grazing and
for which benefits are being re-
quested to be eligible for the Live-
stock Forage Disaster Program

February is National
Heart Month
Valentine's Day, observed Feb-
ruary 14th is an occasion cele-
brated by loved ones around the
world. They present each other
with flowers, chocolates and valen-
tines. Due to the holiday, many
people wear red during the month
of February. But it's also a good re-
minder that it's American Heart
Month, a time to increase aware-
ness that heart disease is prevent-
able and the number one killer of
both men and women. During
American Heart Month everyone
is encouraged to take charge of
their heart health -- today and
every day.
So what can you do to protect
yourself from heart disease? There
are some risk factors you can't con-
trol, such as age, gender, heredity,
race and diabetes. However, there
are many risk factors that we can
control by changing our lifestyle,
including high cholesterol, high
blood pressure, obesity and over-
weight, physical inactivity, and to-
bacco smoke.
Exercising at least 30 minutes
per day, 5 days a week and eating
a healthy diet can help you reach
and maintain a healthy weight,
which is important to reducing the
risk of heart disease. Individuals
who have excess body fat, espe-
cially if it's located primarily
around their waist, are most likely
to get heart disease, even if they
have no other risk factors.
Tips for heart healthy eating in-
clude: Increase your fruits and
vegetables--they are low in calories
and rich in dietary fiber. Choose
whole grains--they are a good
source of fiber and play a role in
regulating blood pressure. Control
your portion size--how "much" you
eat is as important as "what" you
eat. Limit your unhealthy fats and
cholesterol--reduce saturated and
trans-fats in your diet by reducing
the amount of butter, margarine
and shortening that you add when
cooking and serving food. Reduce
the sodium in your food--the Amer-
ican Heart Association recom-
mends eating less than 1500 mg
per day. Choose low-fat protein--
lean meat, poultry, fish, low-fat
dairy products and egg whites are
great protein sources. Spend time
planning meals--this will encour-
age eating from all food groups and
helps ensure that you get the nu-
trients your body needs. Is your
sweetheart determined to give you
sweets for the holiday? Have one
occasionally--what's important is
that you eat healthy most of the
Talk with your health care
provider about your heart care and
discuss regularly monitoring blood
pressure, cholesterol and diabetes
(if you have it). Lastly, consider the
old Greek proverb, "A heart that
loves is always young."

Game, Fish and Parks' The Out-
door Campus-West just released
the slate of program offerings for
the spring season.
Program opportunities are of-
fered for people of all ages and are
grouped into three main audiences:
community, group and school.
"We have an amazing set of class
and program topics available this
spring. All provide hands-on expe-
riences for learners of all ages. One
of the best things is that almost all
of our programs are free," Chad
Tussing, director of The Outdoor
Campus-West, said.
Community programs are those
scheduled for specific dates, times
and ages. Spring offerings include
waterbugs, kayaking, archery and
BB gun basics and more. Individu-
als and families can sign up for
these classes starting February 14
via The Outdoor Campus-West's
Groups such as 4-H clubs,
church groups, etc. can contact
Keith Wintersteen on February 14
to set up the date and topic of their
desired program. There is an ex-
tensive list of possible program top-
ics to choose from, though groups
may also request a customized pro-
Schools in the area can also
choose from a shopping list of pro-
grams or work with Nico Red
Horse to set up a custom program.
Due to the high demand for school
field trips, all schools wishing to
bring a class out this year must
apply for a program slot and be en-
tered into a lottery drawing. Appli-
cations for this drawing are due by
February 14 for the spring season.
