Grapplers capture State B Wrestling Tournament runner-up spot
The Badlands Brawlers took the State B Wrestling Tournament by storm and brought back the runner-up trophy. The team took the second place spot early during
the first day of action and never looked back, but they might have been sweating it a little there at the end. The second place finish wasn’t secured until the fourth
to last match when a Canton wrestler, who was expected to win, failed to do so. Just four points separated the second through fourth place teams.

The annual Cenex Harvest
States Midwest Cooperatives busi-
ness supper was held at the Amer-
ican Legion Hall in Philip,
Thursday, February 21.
Over 100 attendees listened to
business reports, witnessed a re-
gional sales award presentation to
a local employee, were eligible for
various door prizes and partici-
pated in the supper prepared and
served by the United Church
Of the reports of the company
profits and expansion, the local site
of Philip showed a net income for
fiscal year 2012 of $1,604,390. The
Kadoka site showed a net profit of
$286,379. “Both Philip and Kadoka
had outstanding years,” announced
CHS General Manager Milt Hand-
cock. “All in all, that’s economic
stimulus that hits home.” Cash re-
turns to patrons were $48.1 million
in the state of South Dakota. The
CHS fiscal year ends on August 31.
Explaining some of the com-
pany’s overall profit, CHS board
member Randy Hague said, “We
buy our oil at a cheaper price.” He
related that most of CHS oil comes
from Canada, rather from other
more distant and politically diver-
gent sources. Hague reported that
the CHS is still going ahead with
construction plans for a huge nitro-
gen fertilizer plant in North
Dakota. It will be the biggest such
project in CHS and North Ameri-
can history. “We think it’s essential
to our future,” said Hague.
The Midwest Cooperative finan-
cial summary for 2012 was up on
grain margins, merchandise mar-
gins, service and other income mar-
gins, merchandise sales and
patronage refund. It was down on
grain bushels/units volume, and up
on total expenses. The total net in-
come was $6,478,115, down almost
$1,158,500 from 2011.
Top sales performer for the en-
tire CHS Midwest Region was
Philip’s Darwin Hellekson. The
Midwest Region consists of nine de-
fined business units totaling 71 lo-
cations within a four-state area;
southwest Minnesota, northeast
Nebraska, southwest North
Dakota and all of South Dakota.
The Midwest Region handles a
large variety of product, including
but not limited to energy, grain,
feed, agronomy. Ed Mallett, vice
president of the Midwest Region,
presented the certificate to Hellek-
son, who has been with the Philip
Midwest Cooperative for nine
Jay Baxter, Philip and Kadoka
site manager, was out of state for
ongoing training during the annual
meeting. He later said, “What an-
other great year for both Midwest
Cooperatives and our parent com-
pany, CHS Inc. As I’m sure was
stated at the annual meeting, this
success is attributed to both pa-
trons and employees of our cooper-
ative system. Thanks to all for
another great year.”

Through costuming, make-up
and a determined goal to sound
and act differently than their real
life personalities, the Hayes Play-
ers should pleasantly surprise and
humorously entertain audiences
during their presentation of the sit-
uational comedy “Bay at the
This 60th annual Hayes play will
be performed Friday and Saturday,
March 8-9, at 7:00 p.m. and Sun-
day, March 10, at 2:00 p.m. MT in
the Hayes Community Hall.
The new home health assistant
agrees to extend a one-time visit
into a few weeks. “Okay. I’ll look up
everything I can on that disorder.”
He’s not talking about the
Alzheimers that the father has, but
the craziness displayed by the old
man’s two daughters.
The home health assistant,
played by Levi Neuharth (ninth
Hayes play), relates that a full
moon is coming up and, while sup-
posedly referring to nursing home
residents, says, “Every full moon
those people would come up with
the weirdest notions.” Weird no-
tions abound in this comical oppo-
site of an “optimal therapeutic
environment.” He is told by his
boss, “If something happens to Dad
call 911, because you’ll need an am-
bulance when I’m done with you.”
The father, who may be escaping
to Alzheimers, is played by Vince
Bruce (12th Hayes play). His char-
acter built his house, but continu-
ally gets lost in it. He can’t unlock
the door, yet can lock his caregiver
out. He doesn’t drive his broken
down old car, though the battery is
kept charged so he can listen to the
radio during his “trips.” He is per-
snickety, cantankerous, sometimes
wise and loveable.
The reclusive, bitter, whiskey
swigging daughter is played by
Crystal Neuharth. A few of her no-
table lines are, “It’s my toilet! I will
fix it! Thank you!” “These are not
crafts, they are ceramics; you make
it sound less than it is!” And of one
her fiasco dates, “I let him talk all
he wanted, when his mouth wasn’t
moving the rest of him was.”
The self imposing, next door sis-
ter is played by Mindy Kirkpatrick
(seventh Hayes play). She arranges
chance dates for her sister, even
using the weekly bingo night as a
set up. She exclaims of one pushy
man, “You can’t blame a guy for
trying.” To which the reply is, “No,
but you can punch him if you want
to.” Since treehouse days, she has
thrown out her sister’s stuff as
junk. She phones so often that the phone is often unplugged. She even
Hayes community’s comedy “Bay at the Moon”
Above: full of verbal, situational and sight humor, the full-length comedy presented by Hayes actors revolves around two
sisters whose views on life and on their needs-to-be-watched father are feudal. Shown, from left, are actors Mindy Kirk-
patrick, Pat Prince, Robyn Bothwell, Crystal Neuharth and Levi Neuharth. Below: The sister who lives next door is aghast
that their Alzheimer-enjoying father has spent most of the evening in the closet. The sister taking care of him states, “Be-
fore you open
your mouth,
this has hap-
pened before
and I can han-
dle it. He’s fine
in there, and I
have half a no-
tion to join
him.” Shown,

The Philip Area AARP/Retired
Teachers Association and the the
Haakon County Public Library
combined meetings Monday, Feb-
ruary 25, in the Bad River Senior
Citizen’s Center. After AARP/RTA
business, the library held its sec-
ond public input concerning the
history and locations of country
schools within Haakon County.
Jerry Neville was honored as the
2012 Volunteer of the Year. “But
there’s a lot of volunteers in this
town,” said Neville. “And that’s
what makes this place so nice to
live in.”
Special guests were Ron and
Marrietta Catlin, Pierre. She is the
liason from the RTA state board.
Members of the board visit all the
units in South Dakota at least once
every two years. She recalled her
last visit to Philip and the repre-
sentation that Philip had at one of
the last state RTA conventions.
The Philip AARP and RTA com-
bined chapter has 55 members, an
impressive number for the popula-
tion of the area, according to
The annual fifth grade grandpar-
ent essays are currently being writ-
ten, under the tutelage of Philip
school instructor Marie Slovek. A
cooperation between the
AARP/RTA and the Masonic Ceme-
tery board will get together in
March to discuss a posible future
building or roofed area for the
cemetery plot location map and
other information. Free tax aide is
being offered every Tuesday by
IRS-trained Robert McDaniel.
Haakon County Public Library
director Annie Brunskill began by
reinterating that the country
schools project began as a book club
interest in the compilation book
“One-Room Country School: South
Dakota Stories.” The book was ed-
ited by Norma C. Wilson and
Charles L. Woodard, and published
by the South Dakota Humanities
Council. The project grew from
there to try to map all the Haakon
County country schools. Using sev-

dance full of frisky teenagers, hop-
ing that will help.
This sister’s poor husband,
played by Pat Prince (fourth Hayes
play), tries his best, but is usually
shot down in trying to make peace.
He gets along with the father and
everyone else, as long as he just
goes along with the crazy ride of
the two sister’s shenanigans.
A professor friend of the married
sister and her husband is brought
to the house for a social drink.
Played by Robyn Bothwell (sixth
Hayes play), he tries to be assertive
yet friendly. Not stepping on toes is
an impossibility.

eral lists, Brunskill believes that
there were 75 country schools in
the county during the last 100
years. She has determined the lo-
cation of 30-40 on the map. Some
districts have consolidated, with
some of the older names falling
from the records. Some buildings
were moved to different locations,
with some of them being renamed.
Records, diaries, school books and
other memorabilia have been
loaned or donated for the project. A
few items were rescued from the
old museum in Philip before its
A large percentage of attendees
are retired teachers. Stories were
told of being students in country
schools, of teaching in country
schools, of blizzards and other sub-
jects. Kay Ainslie had to take a five
dollar cut in pay because she was
transferred to a country school
closer to Philip. Though some coun-
try schools taught some years of
high school, country students had

Lookin’ Around by Syd Iwan
All my friends and relatives
seem to be writing books. I hope it
isn’t contagious or I might find my-
self writing one too. That sounds
like a lot of work since any act of
creation, whether a book, painting,
or song, takes some doing. These
things don’t make themselves, and
the whole process puts you through
periods of self-doubt, worry, and
mental anxiety. It’s a good feeling
when you finally get something
produced, look at it, and decide it
isn’t half bad, but getting to that
point puts you through the mill.
Friend Ruth, for instance, re-
cently wrote a book about her first
few years as a missionary in Hong
Kong. While she was writing it, I’d
get occasional E-mails expressing
her concerns about proof reading
or that she wasn’t adequately get-
ting across what she wanted to
say. Her creation, “Foreign Devil
Girl in Hong Kong” by Ruth Epp,
is however now available through
Amazon and is a good read. It has
insight, pathos, and humor. She
also gives one a good idea of how
very difficult it is to learn the Can-
tonese Chinese dialect. Since I
have no talent whatsoever at
learning foreign languages, Can-
tonese is probably something I
shouldn’t even attempt. It’s fun,
though, to read about someone
else’s struggle in doing so. Ruth
lived and worked in Hong Kong
from 1959 until 2005 so there are
many more years to write about if
she gets up the nerve and ambition
to pull it off.
I should probably mention that,
before Ruth moved to the other
side of the world, she and her
friend, Darlene, came with Rev.
Knickle in the summers and
taught us Bible School for a week
at a local country schoolhouse.
They lived with us during those
weeks so we got to know them
pretty well, and we’ve kept in
touch ever since.
Then we come to cousin Verna
(Heaton) Benham who recently
published her book, “Champagne
in a Paper Cup.” It is also available
through Amazon and recounts her
time as a Foreign Service employee
in such places as Taiwan and
South America. In the latter, she
met and married a fellow who was
a foreign correspondent for The As-
sociated Press and the U. S. News
& World Report. All in all, she has
lived an extremely interesting life
and has done a good job telling
about it. I seem to have no particu-
lar desire to go to Taiwan or South
America, but it is enjoyable to visit
there through Verna’s eyes and
Local friend Joyce (Dolezal)
Wheeler has also written a couple
of books, (available at Amazon
again.) They are novels, which
means she had to make them up
instead of just writing about things
she has done. Sure, you would
probably base your characters on
people you have known, but you
still have to deal with characteri-
zation, plot and such. It takes a lot
of thinking. It is quite a lot easier
to read Joyce’s books than to make
one up yourself.
So, if you wanted to write a book,
how many words would you have
to come up with? A standard-size
novel, it seems, should probably be
around 80,000 words. That’s a lot.
You might get by with 50,000, but
80,000 would be better. If you were
Leo Tolstoy, you would have to
come up with over half-a-million
words for such tomes as his, “War
and Peace.” That would take weeks
to read much less write. As a col-
lege kid assigned to read it, you
might be better off buying the
“Cliff Notes,” which is a little pub-
lication that allows you to know all
about a book without actually
reading it. I like the comment by
one of the characters on son
Chance’s Veggie Tales video where
he says he read War and Peace via
Cliff Notes and found it “riveting.”
He comments, “That’s three min-
utes of my life I’ll never get back.”
As we said, reading War and Peace
in full might take quite a lot longer
than three minutes since it runs to
something like 1,400 pages. Cliff
Notes might be the way to go in
this case.
I did start writing a mystery
novel over 10 years ago and got
through the first two chapters be-
fore bogging down. Action on that
project has come to a standstill,
but, who knows, maybe I’ll drag it
back out some day and get going
again. I have enough things to do
at present without that, but only
writing a thousand words a week
would get a book written in a little
over a year. I currently write a lit-
tle less than that, maybe 850,
every week writing these things so
maybe I could double my produc-
tion. We’ll have to see.
Since I’ve been writing weekly
articles from 1986 to the present,
I’ve probably already used up well
over a million words. That’s double
what Tolstoy needed for War and
Peace, but my stuff, alas, isn’t ex-
actly in book form. I’m happy to re-
port that I can write much more
quickly and easily now than I could
back in ’86, but it is still fairly hard
work. Like I said, I hope book-writ-
ing isn’t contagious or I might con-
tact that dreaded disease.
Everyone else is catching it, but
maybe it will pass me by. Time will

Perfection ... by Del Bartels
Even thinking about perfection is mind boggling. Optimists believe
that this is the best of all possible worlds, and pessimists fear that they
may be right. Instead of swearing, a sarcastic statement when things
go wrong is, “Just perfect!” A comment to something that is slightly or
humorously contradictory is, “Oh well, nothing’s perfect.” Have you
ever heard someone say, “My day is perfect! Now watch some jerk come
along and louse it up!”? We all think Heaven will be perfect; but one
man’s perfect bliss could be another man’s ‘other place.’ Only one per-
son was perfect, and recall what they did to Him.
Aristotle the philosopher believed that “perfect” was something com-
plete, where there was nothing to add or subtract. But, when you get
done washing your car, you know that a bird will fly over. Once you
reach perfection, where do you go from there? You say good night after
the perfect date, then why ask for a second? On that subject, I could
never be the perfect gentleman, because I would die of boredom. They
say that once a woman finds the perfect man, she marries him and im-
mediately sets out to change him. I feel pity for the teenage hunter who
bags a record-breaking trophy the first time out, because they will
strive their entire life to do better and will possibly fail.
Grammatically the present tense of “eat” is “ I eat,” while the perfect
tense is “I have eaten.” I love eating; I don’t want to have eaten, my
perfect tense would be “I am eating,” thus English teachers hate me.
Musically, perfect pitch is the ability to identify or re-create a given
note without the help of any other sound. Wouldn’t that be agonizing
for that person while attending most church services, birthday parties
and sing-alongs? If you stacked perfectly identical and perfectly
rounded kitchen glasses, you would never get them pulled apart again.
A perfect game in baseball (where no batter reaches even first base)
would be historically noteworthy, but the limited field action would
make me ask for my ticket money back. The second bullseye, if per-
fectly placed in the first hole in the target, couldn’t be proven.
They say that somewhere out there is a woman who is a perfect 10.
Wasn’t Don Juan’s secret that he thought all women were perfect? A
major book and subsequent movie was “The Perfect Storm” – not the
perfect I want to be in the middle of! The phrase “picture perfect” is
disappointing, because if it was a picture of food – you can’t eat it, if a
picture of a mountain – you can’t climb it ... you get the point. They say
that we all experience a perfect moment in time, maybe, but the clock
keeps ticking. Even the “perfect murder” strived for in novels and
movies, by definition, has to have someone be dead.
If I ever discover that perfection is possible, I would hide that fact
from the rest of the world for the world’s sake. Just let it be good
enough that the closest thing to perfect is me. Would the phrase “per-
fectly wrong” be a contradiction or an oxymoron?

Evaluating Your Winter
Wheat Stand
There has been considerable in-
terest in the condition of the win-
ter wheat crop in South Dakota
during this winter of 2012-13.
Much of the crop was planted into
dry soil, and a substantial percent-
age didn’t germinate before cold
weather arrived, with even less
emerging. Winter wheat plants
that sprout and do not establish a
crown and two to three tillers will
not be as winter hardy as plants
that did. However, it is not well
known how much less winter
hardy they are.
With adequate moisture, wheat
seeds germinate (and winter
wheat plants break dormancy) at
temperatures of 39 degrees F or
higher. With soil temperatures at
the 2” and 4” depth hovering at or
near 32 degrees F at most of the
South Dakota Automatic Weather
Data Network (AWDN) stations, it
may be a few weeks before produc-
ers will be able to accurately as-
sess winter wheat survival.
Historically, soil temperatures at
most AWDN stations don’t reach
temperatures in the upper 30s
until mid to late March.
If interested, producers can run
the “bag test”, explained on page
40 of Chapter 4, “Winter Wheat
Planting Guide” of “iGrow Wheat:
Best Management Practices for
Wheat Production: http://igrow.
org/ up/ resources/ 05-1001-04-
2012.pdf to provide an early indi-
cation of winter survival. As the
chapter states, “If information is
not required immediately, the best
way to assess winterkill is to wait
until plant growth commences. It
is quite difficult to get a “field
wide” picture of winter wheat sur-
vival by running the “bag test” as
you are only evaluating a small
Once you are able to accurately
assess winter survival, or what
kind of stand you have remaining
in the spring, you will need to de-
cide whether to leave the stand or
destroy it and plant another crop.
There are three components of
yield; number of heads per unit
area, kernels per head, and kernel
weight. The dominant component
in less than optimum stands is
number of heads per unit area.
The plant population needed to op-
timize yields for most conditions in
South Dakota is considered to be
about 14 to 15 plants/sq. ft. Lower
populations can be managed to
produce profitable yields if the
stand is relatively uniform across
the field. Stands as low as five
plants/sq. ft. can produce nearly 70
percent of maximum yield, and
some areas of the field may have
higher densities, increasing the po-

Producers should not inter-seed
spring wheat into winter wheat as
this would result in mixed wheat

problems and almost certain price
If producers determine that
they have an adequate winter
wheat stand to keep, but less than
ideal, they should apply nitrogen
early to enhance tillering. Nitro-
gen should be applied as soon as
the plants break dormancy, or as
soon as the soil is not frozen. It is
also important to pay close atten-
tion to weed management as
weeds will be more competitive in
a thin stand.

Good judgment comes from expe-
rience which mostly comes from bad
judgment. Quite a few ranchers used
bad judgment one year in the early
1990s. I don’t remember exactly
which year it was, but it was the
first time CRP ground was opened
up for haying for drought relief. Be-
cause the relief was moving at the
speed of government, it was not re-
leased until late September. By that
time the quality of the hay was very
low. The protein content was worse
than straw. What I remember the
most about that year was that the
following calving season. I did more
C-sections on down cows than I did
on heifers. The poor quality hay did
not provide enough energy to sup-
port the cow and large fetus.
I’m seeing some disturbing signs
that this year may be similar. Some
CRP hay analysis have shown only
1.5% protein (wheat straw is 4%);
cows require 9% protein prior to
calving. Right now anything that
can be run through a baler is being
called hay: cornstalks, weeds, cat-
tails, etc... This year I saw a case
where cows were being fed weeds
and they lost two cows from rup-
tured abomasums (the fourth cham-
ber of a cow’s stomach). In an
attempt to eat enough of the poor
quality feed to meet their nutritional
requirements the cows ate such
large quantities that their stomach
literally exploded causing instant
death. I saw a second case of nutri-
tionally challenged cows that was
due to force feeding straw with mo-
lasses. The quality of this feed was
so low that the cow’s omasum (the
third chamber of the stomach) was
impacted causing it to swell to four
times its normal size. These cows
died more slowly as their gut motil-
ity ground to a halt and they stopped
Symptoms in these two cases in-
cluded a big belly (often misidenti-
fied as bloat), going off feed,
producing very little feces, kicking at
the belly, and then sudden death.
There is little treatment once cows
get in this condition and the fatality
rate is high.
In order to prevent more cases like
these we need to feed more protein.
The protein source must be plant
based – NO UREA. Slow protein di-
gestion must match the slow diges-
tion of poorer carbohydrates. I saw a
third case of a possibly low protein
diet just this weekend; after calving
a heifer did not have any milk and
her bag was hard. This is called peri-
parturient udder edema; low blood
protein will cause blood vessels to
leak fluid, particularly the large
blood vessels supplying the cow’s
udder. It is simple to treat this with
a shot of furosemide to pull the fluid
What is disturbing to me about
these three cases is that they may
only be the tip of the iceberg. When
this happened in the 90’s SDSU did
a large study on the cause of weak
calf syndrome. The results showed
that the cause was low quality hay
which in turn leads to weak calves
and poor colostrum.
So, I am trying to relay some of
my experience to you so that you can
skip the bad judgment part and go
straight to good judgment. You can-
not starve a calf out of a cow. A weak
cow will have a weak calf and that
calf will take longer to get to its feet
and have a weaker suckling re-
sponse. The weak cow will have less
colostrum and it will be of poorer
quality, plus the calf will get less of
it. This will lead to more scours in
the spring as well as more summer
and fall pneumonia.
All of these dead cows I’ve opened
up have had minimal body fat. They
are just one blizzard away from a
wreck. Save yourself some experi-
ence and make sure your cows are
getting enough protein.
Are you ready for calving?

Rural electric cooperatives and
utilities in 12 states will receive
loan guarantees to improve gener-
ation and transmission facilities
and implement smart grid tech-
“Providing reliable, affordable
electricity is essential to rural job
creation,” said John Padalino, act-
ing United States Department of

utilities make efficiency improve-
ments to the electric grid and help
consumers lower their electric bills
by reducing energy use in homes
and businesses.
In South Dakota, two utilities
were selected for funding:
•West Central Electric Coopera-
tive, Inc. based in Murdo has plans
to use $10.125 million loan to build
46 miles of distribution line, 14

The planting season is starting
to sneak up on us – now less than
two months away for crops like
spring wheat. If farmers have not
selected or made 100 percent of
their seed purchases, Nathan
Mueller, South Dakota State Uni-
versity Extension agronomist has a
few tips for ways they can buy the
variety that returns the highest
profit per acre.
“Most people justify a buying de-
cision after they have already
made it, based on emotion. Unfor-
tunately, seed purchases often do
not escape this blight. Things that
influence our selection and pur-
chase of varieties include brand
reputation, loyalty and tradition,
friends and family members, ad-
vertising, and company representa-
tives,” Mueller said.
To increase farm level yields,
Mueller encourages growers to uti-
lize yield data in their variety se-
lection process. Yield data can be
collected from side-by-side compar-
isons on the farm, company variety
trials, and third-party variety tri-
“Reliability of this yield data is
not equal. I am not talking about
who (farmer, company, university)
does the work, but the methodol-
ogy,” he said.
The three key methods growers
can use to increase their confidence
in one variety’s performance over
another include blocking or split-
ting the test plot into similar envi-
ronments, randomization or ran-
dom placement of varieties within
the test plot, and replication or the
same variety appears in the test
plot several times.
Another key term Mueller ex-
plained is experimental error.
“This is simply variation in yield
measured in the same variety that
was tested independently several
times within a test plot. The source
of this variation can be soil differ-
ence in the test plot or even inabil-
ity to reproduce the exact same
conditions with equipment opera-
tions and measurements,” Mueller
Mueller explained why these
three methods – blocking, random-
ization, and replication – are im-
portant when making yield data
comparisons among varieties. The
use of blocking, replication and
randomization helps managers of
crop testing performance trials like
the ones conducted at SDSU deter-
mine whether varieties perform
differently at a location, the margin
of difference between varieties, and
confidence that the differences
measured are attributed to the va-
riety, not experimental error.
To review examples that Mueller
provided in an article, visit http://i
The differences between vari-
eties for yield and other important
agronomic traits are posted annu-
ally for all major crops in South
Dakota at These
results help growers make in-
formed purchasing decisions when
seed is ordered for their farm. The
magnitude of performance differ-
ences between varieties or hybrids
can be significant enough to create
a $250 profit per acre swing.

February is typically the time of
year I start dreaming about plant-
ing vegetables and flowers. I think
it’s what helps get me through the
tail-end of winter.
Plants have to be pretty hardy
to survive my attentions. My
Grandma Ollila’s green thumb
was not passed on to me. I can still
picture her beautiful flower beds.
I have learned a few things over
the years, one is with our hot sum-
mers mulch is a must. I generally
use grass clippings, but I was
reading the other day where news-
papers are good, too. If you are
worried about the inks, which are
soybased now, you can use end
rolls which we have in stock at our
newspaper offices. The end rolls
have no ink on them. Wetting the
paper first then putting a layer of
dirt on top seems to be the pre-
ferred method. With the wind we
have, it will definitely need to be
covered with dirt, or a thick layer
of grass clippings.
I haven’t had the chance to try
this, but think it is worthwhile to
pass along – but it will take some
work to complete. If the area you
want to dedicate to a flower bed
has clay, or otherwise bad soil dig
the area out to about a three foot
depth. Line the bottom and sides
of the trench with landscape fab-
ric. Put a layer of gravel/sand for
good drainage. Then fill the hole
with good soil. The landscape fab-
ric is suppose to discourage the
mixing of the two soils. Plant as
Have you ever heard of bale gar-
dening? I hadn’t until I was cruis-
ing around the Internet one day
and came across it at this site –
After arranging bales (on their
side) how and where you want
them, you sprinkle fertilizer on
them and water it in. Do this for
about 10 days. The site said the
goal is to have the bales decompos-
ing before planting. When the
bales are ready spread some pot-
ting soil and compost in a two to
three inch thick layer. Plant seeds
according to package instructions.
Plants can also be transplanted
into the bales.

The controversial “Sentinel” bill
which would allow local school
boards to put armed guards inside
schools passed out of the Senate
State Affairs Committee last week.
About 60 people were on hand at
the meeting, despite snow – and
limited travel – in much of the state.
Time constraints, however, limited
the number of people testifying, as
well as the length of their com-
The vote to send HB1087 to the
Senate floor as amended was five to
four. This surprised many observers
who had expected the vote to swing
the other way.
The amendment removed an ad-
dition made by the House that al-
lowed school boards to discuss and
make a decision in executive session
to implement a sentinel program.
Sen. Mark Johnston, R-Sioux
Falls, noted that such action would
conflict with the existing open meet-
ing statutes.
Sen. Craig Tieszen, R-Rapid City,
agreed, noting that it must be a pub-
licly made decision, but after that
details could be handled in execu-
tive session as a personnel matter.
The lines were still drawn in the
testimony between those who sup-
ported the bill as necessary for
teacher and student safety, and
those who feared the presence of
guns would most certainly end in ac-
cidental shootings and unintended
deaths of those who were meant to
be protected.
Tieszen recounted instances from
the 1990s when he was a Rapid City
police commander in which an
armed student threatened fellow
students. Of 13 threats in Rapid
City following the Columbine school
shooting in 1999, Tieszen said, two
were credible and could have caused
harm if not stopped.
“So, if we think we are immune in
South Dakota,” Tieszen said, “think
Rep. Scott Craig, R-Rapid City,
refuted the assumption that this bill
was in response to the Sandy Hook
Elementary School shooting re-
cently. He said he had presented his
concept to the Legislative Research
Council in December and the shoot-
ings took place two weeks later.
That, he said, “confirmed the
rightness of this bill.” Since then, he
said, there have been four more in-
cidents seen nationally.
Compelling opposition came from
New Underwood Superintendent
Jeff Marlette, who is a retired
brigadier general who saw combat.
“Have we now reached a place
that our state has gotten so bad, so
unsafe,” Marlette asked, where
teachers need to carry guns? He out-
lined the dangers of peripheral dam-
age that even trained law
enforcement can inflict when trying
to bring down a gunman.
Rob Monson, State Association of
School Administrators, presented
an amendment that would have
changed the bill’s intent to an in-
terim study topic.
Tieszen later called the so-called
“hog house” of the bill an “ambush,”
noting he had seen the amendment
for “exactly 32 minutes” during the
meeting. He called the attempt “in-
tensely disrespectful.”
That amendment was defeated.
Sen. Larry Lucas, D-Mission, said
the sentinel bill was an important
issue, in fact, “this is the issue of the
2013 session.” He added, “what we
have in place is working,” noting
that boards could already hire
Chairman Larry Rhoden, R-
Union Center, said the bill’s intent
has been blown out of proportion.
He said it would allow the state’s
152 school districts to decide
whether to participate in a sentinel
Rhoden called the program “one
small step in the right direction.”
The bill now travels to the Senate
floor for final legislative considera-

John`s writing here might suggest people didn`t sin quite as
much in his time ('And IF any man sin.¨). But John still
wanted people to know that when they DID sin, they had
Jesus who would speak to God the Father in their deIense.
Even though we perhaps live in a more sinIul time,
Jesus is still there, still speaking to God, now in our
deIense. His blood covers all our sins.

The weeks go fast and the news
is due once again. This last week
has been fair weatherwise and
Marvin and Vicki have three calves
on the ground. One was up for
water with the momma cow and
was a good strong calf, so if all goes
the same, maybe the drought did
not cause a problem with the
calves. Marvin has feed cake min-
eral along with the hay, so the cows
are in good shape. As always,
everyone keeps those aged cows,
especially if they are good produc-
ers and raise a great calf, so they
may take a little more help than
the younger cows do when they
Marvin was having some prob-
lems with his haying processor. He
took it to Kennedy’s and they put
on some new parts and it worked
good the next morning, so far any-
way. On his new machine he likes
some of the new improvements but
liked some of the things on the
older one better. Sometimes by
making things for modern it can
cause a problem as the hay doesn’t
change that much.
That is the same way with new
cars, so many buttons to push if
you push the wrong one you can be
in deep trouble. You could park
where there is no place to park.
Well, I still have my 2004 Chevy
pickup that I have drove for the
past seven years. It only has 70,000
miles on it and I don’t have to look
to find the buttons that I want, I
know them all by heart. At my age,
I probably will not need another ve-
hicle, so don’t need to worry about
all those buttons.
Saturday, February 23, Danny
Oldenberg stopped in at my house
for a visit and a cup of coffee. I even
scrounged up a few cookies. It sure
was nice to visit with him as I usu-
ally just see him in town and he is
busy getting errands done and I am
doing mine, so we don’t get to stop
and just visit. Later, Marvin
stopped in for coffee and also en-
joyed a visit with Danny. Those two
grew up together and would see
each other every week and some-
times more, and lots more in the
summer months as their dads
worked a lot with each other
through the years. Aren’t memo-
ries of those old days fun to remi-
nisce about when you get together?
Mike and Judy Melvin are here
visiting at Jim and Norma Olden-
berg’s. They came to be here for
Norma’s 70th surprise birthday
potluck dinner and party. They
plan to spend a few days here and
will also go to Rapid City to visit
Monday, February 25, Marvin
and Vicki took me to Rapid City as
I had doctor appointments.
The church ladies of the United
Church served the Cenex supper
on February 21. It was not a very
nice night due to the snow, wind
and cold. There was not as large a
crowd as usual, but more than I
thought would did get brave and
come out. When I came home, I
brushed about two inches of snow
off my pickup and there was about
that much on my front porch the
next morning. So it was another
good snow but we will still need
much more. I have cleaned my deck
and porch off a lot these last two
months, but the ground is very dry
and when the wind blows there is
dust blown off the prairie. Just
does not seem to do much good
What a surprise was pulled off
for Norma Oldenberg’s 70th birth-
day. I don’t know how they all kept
it so quite, but was she ever sur-
prised. In fact, she laughed, hugged
everyone, cried a little, she was so
overwhelmed by it all. Many people
came from the Faith area, Hill
City, Murdo, Sioux Falls, Rapid
City, Gillette, Wyo., and the sur-
rounding community attended to
wish her happy birthday. There
were lots of family members were
there and it was nice to see all of
Shorty Oldenberg’s kids and sev-
eral of their families. All of Jim and
Norma’s kids were there and most
of their grandkids. There was so
much food and such a variety of hot
dishes, salads and desserts. What
a great day for her to remember
and she will cherish the many
cards she received for many days
after. Another 10 years and you
can celebrate your 80th, Norma!
Kieth and Deb Smith went to
state wrestling at Aberdeen and
Scott and Becky Brech and Ray
Smith went with them. Debbie said
that Philip came out second at the
tournament. Way to go Scotties.
I stopped in at Al and Lenore
Brucklachers to pick up some
things Lenore had for me. Al was
busy cleaning snow off of his drive-
way and road with his John Deere
tractor and blade. Lenore said they
were doing fine and all was well
with them.
Today, Sunday, at the Oldenberg
birthday party, I was so pleased to
see Melisa (Mahaffy) Schofield. She
was one of the young people I had
in my camp at seed camping with
the One Way group. She expressed
how much she had learned at camp
and how strong her religion is
today from that experience. She
said her kids went to one up near
Maurine, but it fell very short of
being as good as the one she went
to on the King ranch. Mahaffys and
Oldenbergs were very close friends
from when Oldenbergs lived up
near Faith and their kids had at-
tended school together. Seems
everywhere I go I run into one of
those kids who were in seed camp-
I had some articles on some well-
known hills in this area and how
people would tell people where they
were stalled at or near a certain
hill. They were landmarks. Now
you would not be able to do that as
there are not that many left who
remember those hill. Now we all
have new addresses and new roads
and all are marked with little
green signs with white letters. I am
still trying to get all the names
down so I can find the place that I
want to go.
Then I will meet an old time res-
ident and they will say well it’s at
the bottom of that certain hill or
near the old place that used to be-
long to a certain person. But those
people are getting fewer and fewer
as years go by and that new gadget
you get for your car now tells you
where to go. Well, let me tell you
they are not always right. They will
tell you to turn left when you
should go right sometimes.
I still do not think all those gadg-
ets will do you much good if they
quit working when you are way out
in no man’s land. You had better
watch where you are going so you
can backtrack if you have to or be
lucky and run into an oldtimer who
has lived there a long time and
plays by the old rules and directs
you on your way.
I arrived home too late to call
people and many were getting back
from attending wrestling and
weekend visiting. So will close with
this in mind.
Remove not the ancient land-
mark, which thy fathers have set. –
Proverbs 22:28
To keep up even a worthwhile
tradition means vitiating the idea
behind it which must necessarily be
in constant state of evolution: it is
mad to try to express new feeling in
mummified form – Alfred JARRY

established last year by State Sec-
retary of the Y.C.L. in having a

on the “Destruction of the Barberry
Bush,” a similar move, on a larger
scale is being carried out this year.

Grindstone News … Edwin
Seiler has been suffering with an
infected knee due to an injury from
a nail.
News has been received here of
the death of Aleck Shoemaker. He
was a victim of tuberculosis.
Editor Bill Wells, whose pithy
style has made his paper, the Web-
ster Journal, a leader in south
Dakota, believes public officials
everywhere are making govern-
ment too expensive, and says: “The
public official may strut his stuff
with nose in the air, but when all is
said and done he is simply your
hired hand, to do the things you
want him to do and to spend your
money carefully and get value re-
ceived for it. And if he be a loafer,
a boozer, a proud and independent
rascal, fire him. The governor and
the legislature and all the officials
of this state are only the people’s
hired hands, to do the people’s bid-
ding, so be not backward in telling
them that the thing you want done
is not more taxes, but less taxes.
Ask them to spend more time and
effort in saving and less time hunt-
ing up new ways of getting more
money to spend. We pay double for
nearly all we get in government,
and unless the people sit down on
this wastefulness, we will soon pay
thrice over for all that which we re-
ceive. Boss the politicians – don’t
let them boss you.

After drawing an extremely dif-
ficult tournament schedule, Coach
Deb Hall’s Scottie basketball squad
came through in magnificant style
to win the district championship
last Saturday evening.
The tournament was the most
successful ever held here with
record crowds attending from the
very first. The gross receipts for the
two days was more than nine hun-
dred dollars and each of the twelve
participating teams received a
bonus of $37.50. The crowd at the
final games Saturday night
reached 1,400, according to reports,
which is the largest ever witnessed
in the auditorium.
Philip Scotties will now play in
the regional tournament held in
Philip the end of this week.
The four-year-old daughter of
Orvil Wood of Cottonwood vicinity,
was brought to Dr. Richardson’s of-

It’s a beautiful Monday morning
with the sun shining out of a clear
blue sky. Makes one think of
spring. But, with a bit of snow
on the ground and waking up to 10˚
temperatures. Mother Nature is
telling us, “not yet.” Having been
married to a farmer for almost 53
years, you learn that farming gets
in their blood. It is a big part of
their lives. As spring gets closer,
thoughts of farming are not far be-
hind. Many folks are busy calving,
so are staying pretty close to home.
Jerry and I lived in a trailer house
before moving into the house we
now live in. The trailer house was
moved to the farm and Jerry
stayed there during calving. No
longer having cattle, Jerry and I
have been busy sorting and clean-
ing at that trailer house. What a
job. But, a job that needed to be
done. It’s funny how easy it is to
put a job like that off, isn’t it?
What’s that saying? “Out of sight,
out of mind?” Randy Nemec and his
helper, Larry Lange, put the last of
the new windows in our house last
week. They got the steel siding on
a storage shed we have and this
morning they are putting on the
trim. Lyle Hunt built that storage
shed a number of years ago. Over
the years, we gave that shed a
paint job, but, the time came when
painting wasn’t going to do the job.
It needed new siding. So, it’s been
a time of cleaning, sorting, and fix-
ing, and it does feel good to have it
behind us, for the time being, that
is. There always seems to be things
to fix, sort, and clean. So, who
knows what our next project will
Basketball is coming to a close
for this season. Most district games
have been played, with regions
coming up, and then it’s off to state
tournaments. The girl’s district
championship basketball game be-
tween the Spearfish Spartans and
St. Thomas More Cavaliers was an
exciting game, with Spearfish win-
ning by two points. We have a
granddaughter, Miranda Meeker,
playing for the Spearfish Spartans.
They play against Red Cloud in the
regional tournament tomorrow. As
many folks know, Keith Hunt en-
joys basketball and has video taped
many basketball games over the
years. From Keith, we learned that
the Spearfish girls’ coach, Eric
Lappe, is the step-grandson of Don
Sandal, who as many of you know,
grew up in the Moenville area and
now lives in Pierre with his wife,
Shirley, who is Eric’s grandmother.
What’s that song, “It’s a Small
World After All?” It is that. Accord-
ing to Keith, Eric went to school
and played basketball at Harold.
Reports are he was a great basket-
ball player. This is Eric’s first year
as basketball coach for the
Spearfish Spartans. Good luck to-
morrow night, Spartans.
Roy Hunt, Keith Hunt, Barry
Hunt, and Christine (Hunt) Niedan
went to Pierre Sunday, to the home
of their sister, Peg and Roger John-
son. Roger and Peg’s family, Chad
Johnson, who goes to college at
Brookings, Leesa Johnson, Denver,
Colo., and Laurie Johnson, Holland
Toles and their son, Landon Toles,
Austin, Texas, were also there. All
attended church at Resurrection
Lutheran where little Landon was
being baptized. A number of Lau-
rie’s friends from her school days of
growing up in Pierre were also
there. Pastor Bly is pastor of that
church. Many folks may remember
Pastor Bly as he and his family
lived in Philip for a number of
years while he was pastor there.
Following the church service, there
was a dinner at the church giving
people a chance to visit while en-
joying a good meal.
Saturday, Clint and Prerry
Saucerman headed for Rapid City
where they enjoyed the classic car
show with their son, Tel and Ellie
(Nemec) Saucerman and family.
They spent the night at Tel and
Ellie’s and Sunday they all at-
tended church at Victory Chapel
where Tel is pastor. Everyone en-
joyed a potluck meal and fellowship
following the church service. After
an enjoyable weekend it was time
to head home. Clint and Prerry
stopped at the Philip Nursing
Home for a visit with Clint’s dad,
Gaylord Saucerman.
Prerry reported that Wednes-
day evening there were 55 people
at their taco meal at Trinity
Lutheran Church education room,
with Lenten services following.
Those tacos were delicious, just the
way I like them. Learning that
Deanna Finn made up the dough
for those tacos I told her they were
delicious. She said it’s all in how
much you knead dough. If you
knead it too much, according to
Deanna, it makes the dough tough.
But, then, Deanna is one of those
people who has that magical touch
when it comes to baked foods.
March 6 will be another good meal
before Lenten services, pancakes
and waffles with homemade syrup.
It is from 5:00 to 6:30, so mark your
calendars, you won’t be sorry.
Friday, Shorty and Mickey
Woitte were in for a big surprise as
their kids and families began com-
ing home to help Shorty and
Mickey celebrate their 65th wed-
ding anniversary. Their kids able
to make it home were Rex and
Linda Woitte and their daughter,
Amanda Woitte, and family, all of
Rapid City, Kandi Nelson and her
grandson, Brandan, Sioux Falls,
Robin and Josef Opitz, Harwood,
N.D., Joe and Bobbi Woitte, Mid-
land, Kristin Woitte, Vancouver,
Wash., and Eric Woitte, Mason,
Alexis, and Chris, Tea. Everyone
enjoyed dinner together Sunday
before everyone had to head back
home. Shorty reports, “It was a full
house, but lots of fun.”
Don and Sally Ehlers returned
home Friday after spending several
days in Las Vegas, Nev., enjoying a
large polka fest and a week in
Gilbert, Ariz., where they visited
Don's brother and family. They
also spent time with Sally’s
brother, Ernie and Laurel Nemec,
at their motorhome, did a lot of
sightseeing and enjoying the warm
Clark and Carmen Alleman,
Duane and Lola Roseth, and Julian
and Coreen Roseth were supper
guests at the home of their sister,
Sophie and Pat Foley, Saturday
evening. Sophie reports Pat was
the chef.
Last Thursday, Gene and Au-
drey Jones went to Kadoka to
watch the Kadoka Kougar ladies
play a good game against Lyman in
the district championship game.
Their granddaughter, Destiny
Dale, plays for Kadoka. Friday,
Gene and Audrey drove to Mitchell
to watch the Scotland Lady High-
landers play in their district cham-
pionship against Hansen at the
Corn Palace. Their granddaugh-
ters, Samantha and Jaycie
Geiman, play for Scotland. Both
were very good games, but the fa-
vored teams came out on the bot-
tom in both games. Gene and
Audrey enjoyed a nice visit with
Lisa and Matt Foley in Mitchell.
Sam and Jaycie spent the night
with their grandparents in
Mitchell following the game. Gene
and Audrey took them home Satur-
day morning before returning to
Wednesday, Wes and Carrie
Mentele, Cole, Logan, and Ava,
Howard, stopped in at the home of
her parents, Morrie and Barb
Jones. After visiting a bit, Wes and
Carrie headed for the Black Hills
leaving the kids with grandpa and
grandma. Wes and Carrie have a
cabin in the Black Hills, so friends
met them there. Everyone enjoyed
snowmobiling, skiing, and spend-
ing time at the cabin. It was a get-
away vacation.
Tuesday, February 28, Morrie
and Barb Jones headed for the
boys’ basketball game at Mitchell
between Mitchell Christian and
Wessington Springs. Their son, Pat
Jones, coaches the junior varsity
and varsity and he and his wife,
Sandy, have a son that plays on the
varsity team.
Saturday, Judy and Julie Daly
and Barb Jones and Jody Block
went to Rapid City to the Broad-
way show, “Hooray For Holly-
wood,” reporting a was an excellent
Pat Snook, Midland, and Marcia
Jackson, Hot Springs, normally go

Sunday, February 17, Wyatt
Trapp, who is a freshman at T.F.
Riggs High in Pierre, was the guest
of Hailey Ketteler for the king of
hearts dance in Pierre. It is a dance
where the girls invite the boys.
February 15, six-year-old Bax-
ter Schrempp, Dupree, spent the
long weekend with his grandpar-
ents, Jerry and Joy Jones. Baxter
is the son of Jody (Jones) and Bob
Schrempp. Zak Sinkey, son of Russ
and Cindy (Jones) Sinkey, came to
the home of his grandparents,
Jerry and Joy Jones, February 16
spending a few days. Russ and
Cindy headed for Fargo, N.D.
where Cindy was to take a test to
advance her work with dialysis.
The good news was, she passed the
test, but due to blizzard conditions,
she and Russ had to spend an extra
day in Fargo.
Friday, February 22, Jerry
Jones and son Cody Jones went to
Rapid City where Jerry had an ap-
pointment with a dermatologist.
Monday, February 25, Debbie
Trapp started her new job as exec-
utive director of the South Dakota
Brand Board. Debbie has worked
in Pierre for a number of years. She
and her husband, Mike Trapp’s,
kids go to school in Pierre.
I’m not finding some folks at
home and some I got hold of said
they had no news. Their news was
staying at home because of calving.
As, Jerry and I headed for Belle
Fourche Saturday morning, it was
a beautiful drive as there must
have been some fog earlier in the
morning, leaving the trees and
grasses covered in frost. With the
sun shining on the land, those
frosted trees and grasses sparkled.
It was beautiful. We had dinner
with our son, Jim and Carmen
Nemec and Dale. It was odd to see
their home with so few people.
Over the years it was filled with
their own kids and many of their
friends. Of their five kids, one is in
Denver, one in the Navy, and two
are going to School of Mines, so
Dale is the lone one at home, and is
a freshman at Belle Fourche. In the
afternoon, we headed for Spearfish
visiting our daughter, April and
Steve Meeker. Miranda was at bas-
ketball practice. The weather was
beautiful, didn’t even need a coat.
After an enjoyable day, we headed
for home, stopping in Rapid City
for a quick bite, before heading on
home. We met some people who
have relatives in this area, Ray and
Gail Berry, Norris. They had been
to Rapid City visiting family and
had stopped for a quick bite before
heading home. I believe I have it
correct, he said Tom Berry was his
great-grandfather and Faye
(Berry) Jones was his aunt, so they
would have cousins in this area.
Ray and Gail were missionaries in
South Africa for a time, and he did
maintenance and she worked in
the kitchen at Sunshine Bible
Academy, at one time. Always in-
teresting the folks you meet up
with. My brother, Phil Meyers,
Pierre, called last night. He said he
had been in Rapid City Saturday
and was going to stop at our place
on the way home. Finding no lights
on at our house, he stopped and
visited with Roy and Carol Hunt
for a while before heading home.
As I close out my column for this
week, I would like to share a few
sayings from an Amish magazine
we get through the mail. “I Be-
lieve – That our background and
circumstances may have influenced
who we are. But we are responsible
for who we become. I Believe – That
two people can look at the exact
same thing and see something to-
tally different.” Have a good day
and a good week.

The state’s “working poor” who
do not qualify for Medicaid cover-
age for low income families and in-
dividuals were the center of
attention at a joint hearing at the
state Capitol recently.
South Dakota has the opportu-
nity to provide that coverage, but
the governor has indicated the
state should go slowly in adopting
the expanded program, citing the
nation’s fiscal problems.
The health and human services
committees of both the House and
Senate heard testimony February
20, with Senate Chair Jean Hun-
hoff, R-Yankton, noting there
would be no bill to vote on after-
ward. The expansion of Medicaid in
the state, if there is one, apparently
would be handled through the gen-
eral appropriations bill, expected in
the last few days of the session’s
main run.
Twenty-one people testified in
favor of the expansion, while only
two testified against ... but both
sides offered compelling arguments
during the two-hour hearing.
John Mengenhausen, Horizon
Health Center, with facilities in
Howard, Elk Point, Isabel, Ft.
Pierre and Faith, and 27 medical
clinics, spoke in favor of the expan-
sion. The Medicaid expansion, he
said, is the best and least expensive
way to help the currently unin-
sured, and allow providers to add
staff that is needed. This would en-
hance economic development,
which he called a “gradual puzzle
that works together.”
Many of those testifying noted
that those most helped by the ex-
pansion of Medicaid benefits would
be the people who are working
hard, many times at two or more
jobs, but who fall just above the
guidelines to receive Medicaid ben-
The Reverand Karl Kroeger,
Pierre, said while people are en-
couraged to pull themselves up by
their bootstraps, “some people just
don’t have boots ... others may have
boots, but not bootstraps.” And,
Kroeger noted, this is about “help-
ing those people who slip through
the cracks.”
Gale Walker, chief executive of-
ficer Avera Health of Parkston,
with clinics in Parkston, Tripp and
Lake Andes, said $250,000 in med-
ical care was written off by his fa-
cilities last year, as a result of
treating those who can’t afford to
pay. Expansion of Medicaid bene-
fits, he said, would take care of the
expenses in a better fashion than is
being done currently.
Finance Director Erica Peterson,
Sanford Chamberlain, testified
there is high Medicaid utilization
among the working poor in her
area. She noted there are 65 self-
pay patients each month in their
emergency room. Of that amount,
said Peterson, 95 percent would
qualify for assistance under the
Medicaid expansion. She also
urged lawmakers who are con-
cerned about the future federal
backing of the expansion, not to “let
this overshadow the ... positive ef-
fect” it would have now.
More and more, noted Jim Hard-
wick, Hughes County commis-
sioner, “private insurance becomes
a luxury.” As a commissioner,
Hardwick noted the increase in
poor relief cases brought to the
county for payment. He said the ex-
pansion would be “an investment”
in the state’s people and its econ-
Opponent Florence Thompson,
Caputa, urged lawmakers to “look
at the big picture ... and be realis-
tic,” comparing the government
programs to socialism. Expanding
Medicaid benefits, she said, is in-
tended to further involve states fi-
nancially. Thompson asked that
lawmakers “resist any attempt to
expand an already bankrupt pro-
Stephanie Strong, Rapid City,
also spoke against the expansion,
noting that “Medicaid had its
chance, and already has failed.”
She urged that South Dakota be a
leader in rejecting the expansion,
noting the “free market will fix our
Sen. Phil Jensen, R-Rapid City,
quoted from the Bible that it was
“the church’s responsibility” to help
the poor. “The Catholic Church as
vast real estate holdings,” added
Jensen, asking, “Why can’t that be
sold off to help the poor?” He said
he would be resisting the expan-
sion, noting that to add more
“would be insane.”
Rep. Steve Hickey, R-Sioux
Falls, who is a minister, said he be-
lieved the state would be paying for
the expense either way, recalling
earlier testimony about the high
cost of emergency room care. He
called it “a moral issue,” and said
while he was worried about the ex-
pansion, “we need to take care of as
many people as we can.”
Rep. Troy Heinert, D-Mission,
noted that both his wife and son
were uninsurable, and he could see
families in his area that this ex-
pansion will help. After June 1, he
noted, the Indian Health Services
will have no money to fix the prob-
lem. Calling it a “moral” issue,
Heinert said “I will need to approve

Now is the time to apply for the
Capt. Jack Piroutek Scholarship.
This scholarship is now open for
students pursuing any post high
school accredited educational pro-
gram at any accredited college or
vocational/technical school.
Applicants must graduate from
Philip High School, and strong
preference will still go to those pur-
suing engineering degrees and/or
attending the School of Mines and
Technology in Rapid City.
Due to the fewer number of
Philip High School graduates
choosing to attend the School of
Mines, it has been decided to open
this scholarship up to all graduates
pursuing higher education. The
total scholarship per student will
be $1000 for a four-year college
program, $800 for a three-year pro-
gram, $600 for a two-year program,
and $400 for a one-year program.
The scholarship is named for
John Griffin Piroutek, son of Allen
and Kathryn (Kertzman) Piroutek.
He was born on April 29, 1944,
spent his youth in Milesville, and
graduated from Philip High School
in 1962. In 1967, he graduated
from South Dakota School of Mines
and Technology in Rapid City with
a bachelor of science degree in civil
engineering. After college, he vol-
untarily enlisted in the United
States Air Force, entering service
in October 1967.
After training, he became a pilot
of a C-141 transport plane, sta-
tioned at Travis Air Force Base in
California until the spring of 1970.
He completed Helicopter Transi-
tion Training, and then served dur-
ing the Vietnam War in Thailand
from 1970 until 1971, transporting
the wounded from the battlefields
by helicopter. Jack became a cap-
tain and earned awards including
the Distinguished Flying Cross, the
Air Medal with two oak leaf clus-
ters, and the Air Force Commenda-
tion Medal.
Jack’s last assignment was as
wing standardization and evalua-
tion officer for the 601st Tactical
Control Wing. At age 31, Jack was
killed, along with three other air-
men, in the crash of a CH-53C hel-
icopter during an unarmed routine
mission at Sembach Air Base in
West Germany on March 17, 1976.
Jack was married for a very
short time to an Irish gal, but they
never had any children.
After Jack’s death, his family
and friends set up the scholarship
trust and continue to contribute to
the fund. The first scholarship was
awarded to Dan Kiel of Cotton-
wood. Over the past 37 years, ben-
efits have been given to 46 different
students. Additional recipients will
be selected this May. Interested
students should see the guidance
counselor, Pamela DeJong at
Philip High School for application

The Milesville area got a little
light snow Thursday – nothing like
what the folks in Nebraska,
Kansas and Missouri got. We have
mixed feelings about snow this
time of year. We need the moisture
for sure, but it would be more “con-
venient” if we got it closer to
spring. We'll be thankful whenever
it comes.
Dan and Gayla Piroutek have
been busy traveling to bull sales.
Last Wednesday they were at Pow-
ers Lake, N.D., which is only a few
miles from Canada and Montana.
It was -5˚ with 18 inches of snow on
the ground, which meant the
ditches were full, with drifts many
places. And, the wind was blowing.
No new snow, but it was like a
ground blizzard. They were glad to
head back south as it felt like they
were in Siberia. It was 15˚ when
they returned to Milesville Wed-
nesday evening and it felt like it
was a heat wave.
We are sorry to learn that on
Tuesday night Sonny Stangle fell
and broke his leg. He was taken to
Rapid City where he had surgery.
The plan is that he be transferred
to Philip on Monday the 25th.

Philip Area grapplers held on to
their second place standing which
they had posted after the first day
of action at the South Dakota State
B Wrestling Tournament in Ab-
erdeen, February 22-23.
As the final matches were taking
place Parkston was at 158 points,
Philip Area at 115, Wagner 111.5
and Canton 111. Philip Area had
completed their last match with
Canton having one more. Wagner
was done wrestling and would stay
at 111.5. Head Coach Matt Don-
nelly noted that 182 pound weight
class was the deciding factor. If the
Canton wrestler won by decision
Philip Area and Canton would tie
for second; if he won with a pin
which scores more points, Canton
would take second place. Philip
Area’s score held as the Canton
wrestler lost his bid for the cham-
pionship. Parkston finished the
tournament with 164 points.
Philip Area took nine wrestlers
to the tournament, eight of which
advanced to the second day of ac-
tion. Those eight all placed sixth or
higher. By comparison Parkston
brought 12 wrestlers to Aberdeen
and with 10 finishing seventh or

Underwood, Monday, February 25,
by defeating the Rapid City Chris-

Philip started out with a no-non-

extreme lead in the first quarter
forecast the rest of the game. After
cementing a healthy advantage,
Philip gave its bench some game
time. Philip’s depth of talented
players was proven, with the Scot-

The crowd – audience and participants – was a joyous, controlled chaos at the
annual Philip AAU Wrestling Tournament, Monday, February 18.
The Philip Lady Scotties ended
their 2012-2013 basketball season
with their second game in the Dis-
trict 14B girls’ tournament.
The Scotties had defeated the
Oelrichs Tigers, 80-66, February
18, during Philip’s first game of the
tournament. The same evening,
the New Underwood Tigers had
eliminated the Edgemont Moguls,
62-35. The next evening, New Un-
derwood was taken out of the run-
ning by the Rapid City Christian
Comets, 42-30. Philip also lost its
match against the Wall Lady Ea-
gles, 49-39.
The Scotties held their own dur-
ing the first quarter, which ended
in a tie score. The second quarter
saw Philip earn an optimistic lead
of three points. The beginning of
the second half was a trial for the
Lady Scotties, but one where their
stamina on defense and offense
still held true. The buzzer at the
end of the third quarter announced
a tied score, and it could be any-
body’s game. The final quarter was
too much for Philip. Though their
offense was still consistant with
earlier quarters, their defense al-
lowed the Eagles to launch ahead
into double-time for the quarter.
The often tied game ended with the
Lady Scotties down by 10.

Though Philip was not a con-
tender at the February 21 contest
for the district championship, the
Philip pep band was invited to play
during the event in Rapid City at
the School of Mines and Technol-
ogy. The game ended with Wall de-
feating Rapid City Christian 45-38.
Wall was scheduled to face the Dis-
trict 13B champions, the Lyman
Raiders, in the Region 7B girls’
basketball tournament, Tuesday,
February 26, in Kadoka. The re-
sults of which team would be a
Class B state qualifier were not
available at print time. The State
B girls’s basketball tournament
will be March 7-9 in Huron.
Philip Lady Scotties
done at 14B Districts
The Philip Scotties could not
help but play their best, but they
did put in 15 different players, 13
of whom earned statistics before
the final buzzer of a lopsided win
over the Kadoka Area Kougars.
The home court win was during
the Philip basketball team’s par-
ents’ night, Friday, February 22.
The Philip win was more than
just a likely possibility, when in the
first quarter the visitors could not
even get on the scoreboard until a
minute and 29 seconds remained.
The quarter ended with only one
field goal for the Kougars and more
than 10 times that for the Scotties.
Families got to see their athletes
play, but the second quarter was no
glory to watch as Philip’s defense
stymied Kadoka. With 4:30 re-
maining on the second quarter
clock, Philip finally allowed a sec-
ond basket by Kadoka. Some fouls
by the Scotties allowed the
Kougars some free throw points,
but nowhere near enough to even
be a threat. The misery for the op-
ponents was finally over with a
final score of Philip – 86, Kadoka –

FEBRUARY 5, 2013
A meeting of the Haakon County Com-
missioners was held on Tuesday, Febru-
ary 5, 2013, at 1:01 PM. Those present at
the meeting were Chairman Stephen
Clements, Vice Chairman Tom Radway,
Members Nicholas Konst, Gary Snook
and Edward Briggs. A quorum was estab-
lished. Also attending were States Attor-
ney Gay Tollefson, Auditor Pat Freeman,
Deputy Auditor Carla Smith, Highway Su-
perintendent Kenneth Neville, Customer
Account Technician Alex Kulesza from
Butler Cat in Rapid City, SD, DOE Toni
Rhodes, CHN Heidi Burns, Extension
Secretary Sheryl Hansen, Emergency
Manager Lola Roseth and Pioneer Re-
view Representative Nancy Haigh.
The January 8, 2013, Regular Minutes
were read. Auditor Freeman noted in
Resolution 2013-03, "for permanent full-
time deputy, starting hourly wage has
been set at $8.99 per hour for the first
three months, $10.40 per hour for the
second three months and ($12.51 there-
after) . ¨ should read, $11.80 thereafter.
Also, the next sentence stated, "Ìf the
need arises, for temporary part-time high-
way workers, the salary rate is set at . ¨
($11.79 per hour) which should have read
$12.51 per hour. Also, Auditor Freeman
noted that in Resolution 2013-03, a per-
manent part-time deputy position was es-
tablished but a pay rate was not set.
Commissioner Snook made a motion to
set the rate of pay the same as a perma-
nent full-time deputy. The motion was
seconded by Commissioner Konst with all
in agreement. With these changes Com-
missioner Konst motioned to approve the
minutes with Vice Chairman Radway sec-
onding the motion. Motion carried.
CACS Capital Area Counseling Service
was discussed again. Capitol Area Coun-
seling located in Pierre, SD, had written
Haakon County to ask for a contribution
for the 2013 calendar year. On 05-06-08
Haakon County designated them as our
Core Service Agency. Ìn the Administra-
tive Rules of South Dakota or ARSD
46:05:01:01 Definitions: "Core Service
Agency,¨ an agency designate by the Di-
vision of Alcohol and Drug Abuse to pro-
vide prevention services, early
intervention services, and outpatient serv-
ices in those counties that are approved
by the county commissioners of each
county within the agency's catchment
area. Capitol Area Counseling's "catch-
ment area¨ is Buffalo, Haakon, Hughes,
Hyde, Jones, Lyman, Potter, Stanley and
Sully counties. Capitol Area Counseling
now comes to Philip, SD, once a week to
the Philip hospital to do counseling. Com-
missioner Briggs requested that someone
from that service come and speak to the
commission so they could get a better
idea of what is provided to Haakon
County. The other counties involved were
called to see what they donate, if any-
thing. Auditor Freeman was told that
CACS's budget is not sufficient to make it
through a year. A motion was made to not
donate at this time. Ìt was seconded with
all in agreement.
Ìt was requested by the commission that
all employees be given a copy of the new
handbook to see if they had any ques-
tions. The new handbooks were distrib-
uted for review by the employees. The
new Haakon County Policy Handbook
had been approved at the January 8,
2013, Regular Session Meeting. The next
project will be to get position descriptions
written and approved for employees.

Alex Kulesza addressed the purchase of
new graders again with the commission-
ers. The original thought was to surplus
the two (2) Caterpillar H models. Through
much discussion it was decided to sur-
plus the two (2) newest Caterpillar M's.
Even though they were under warranty,
they needed more repairs than the oth-
ers. These two newer M's had new rip-
pers on them. That would bring a higher
price. A third Caterpillar H would be
added to the purchase list. Commissioner
Briggs made a motion to surplus and re-
place the third Caterpillar H and was sec-
onded by Commissioner Konst. Motion
carried. Sioux Falls leases new motor
graders every year. Kulesza had already
committed two (2) of these one-year old
motor graders to Haakon County and
now, committed a third. Haakon County
will end up with three (3) motor graders
with two rippers at a cost of $177,000
over a period of four years. Commis-
sioner Snook motioned to purchase one
more ripper and one wing. Vice Chairman
Radway seconded the motion. Motion
Neville reported that the State of South
Dakota will be removing a bridge off of the
State System because the bridge has
been replaced by a culvert. The structure
ÌD is 28-076-410. The location is 8N &
9.4W of Philip, SD. The reason for dele-
tion is structure has been replaced with
culverts that no longer meet NBÌS length
requirements. Commissioner Konst made
the motion to approve the Resolution to
Delete Bridge From (NBÌS) National
Bridge Ìnventory System. Commissioner
Briggs seconded. Motion carried.
There are two meetings for Superintend-
ent Neville to attend. There is the Safety
Conference in Pierre, SD, on March 6-7,
2013, and Superintendent's Short Course
in Deadwood, SD, on March 12, 2013.
Commissioner Briggs motioned to ap-
prove both trainings and Vice Chairman
Radway seconded. Motion carried.
Emergency Manager Lola Roseth gave
her final 2012 quarterly report. She asked
the commission if any of them had re-
ceived any alert messages on their cell
phones. The commission was informed
that new law had been passed where all
commissioners would need to submit
their e-mails and phone numbers. More
training would be required from FEMA so
that she would meet the states require-
ments to receive funding from the state
for half of her wages.
The commission was presented with the
4-H Advisors' travel agenda for the month
of February 2013. Vice Chairman Rad-
way motioned to approve the travel. Com-
missioner Konst seconded. Motion
carried. Extension Administrative Assis-
tant Sheryl Hansen reported to the com-
mission that she would be out of the office
for possible three to six weeks for medical
reasons. She will work from home as
soon as she is able.
The Veteran's Report was reviewed. Vet-
eran's Officer Terry Deuter had been out
of the office due to the flu.
Director of Equalization Toni Rhodes re-
ported that she was ready to hire her tem-
porary part-time person. Each year the
commissioners meet on the second Tues-
day in April to act as the Board of Equal-
ization. This year's meeting will be
Tuesday, April 9, 2013. For those who
wish to appeal their taxes, a written re-
quest must be turned in to the Director of
Equalization. The City of Philip will hold
their meeting on Tuesday, March 19,
2013. Another request made by DOE
Rhodes was for the county to require a
building permit. For those who did not get
a building permit, a fine should be at-
Permission was requested to go to Pierre,
SD, to work on her assessing certifica-
tion. Vice Chairman Radway made a mo-
tion and Commissioner Briggs seconded.
Motion carried.
County Health Nurse Heidi Burns gave
her 2012 final quarterly report. The com-
mission was informed of WÌC, baby care,
family planning, immunizations, school
health, upcoming events and community
activities for October, November and De-
cember of 2012.
Auditor Freeman reported to the commis-
sion that 2014 CPÌ would be 2.1%. Direc-
tor of Equalization has also reported
$3,521,333 in new growth. Ìt was also re-
ported that the two years ending Decem-
ber 31, 2011, audit report books had been

Proceedings of Haakon
SchooI District 27-1
Board of Education
ReguIar Meeting Minutes
February 18, 2013

The Board of Education of the Haakon
School District 27-1 met in regular ses-
sion for its regular meeting on February
18, 2013, at 6:00 p.m. at the Philip Ar-
mory, Room A-1. President Scott Brech
called the meeting to order with the fol-
lowing members present: Jake Fitzger-
ald, Scott Brech, Vonda Hamill, Mark
Nelson, Anita Peterson and Doug Thor-
son. Absent: Mark Radway. Also present:
Supt/Elementary Prin. Keven Morehart,
Business Manager Britni Ross, Lisa
Schofield, Marie Slovek, Joe Gittings,
Mindy Green, Seth Green, Nancy Haigh,
Tanya McÌlravy, Gavin Snook, Heidi
Burns, Del Bartels, Kelsie Kroetch, Tate
DeJong, Garrett Snook, Keegan Burnett
and Mike Gebes.
All action taken in the following minutes
was by unanimous vote unless otherwise
13-83 Communications from the audi-
ence: Joe Gittings of First National
Agency presented a check for $1,961.53
from EMC Ìnsurance to the Board. The
check is a 2012 dividend through the
South Dakota school safety group divi-
dend program. Tanya McÌlravy ad-
dressed the board in an effort to start
school after Labor Day. Reasons in-
cluded family time, the community swim-
ming pool and that athletic practices
could be held earlier in the day to beat
the heat. She presented an alternative
calendar of her own which included
some extra Fridays and dropping 4 days
of student contact. Nancy Haigh spoke in
opposition to McÌlravy's idea, stating that
she didn't like the idea of going extra Fri-
days and knew of some students who
wouldn't be in favor of that either. Stu-
dents in attendance didn't offer an opin-
ion either way, but some of those are
currently seniors who would be unaf-
fected by any changes.
13-84 Motion by Fitzgerald, second by
Peterson to approve the agenda as pre-

Thorson to approve the following items

Ray and Nancy Neuhauser at-
tended funeral services in Pierre
for Joe Husband on Saturday. Joe
was a former neighbor of Nancy's
in the Highmore area, and Joe's
widow, Bessie, is a cousin of Velva
Neuhauser's. Both Ray and Nancy
have been enjoying card groups
and senior center activities.
Adam and Jodi Roseth and fam-
ily spent last weekend in Rapid
City, having a family outing before
calving season kicks into high gear.
The kids got to do some swimming,
which was a real treat.
Jon and Connie Johnson had a
quieter week also. Their son, Noah,
had BB gun practice on Sunday,
and next Saturday will be the first
match of the season. After that,
they will have shooting matches
most every weekend for the next
couple of months.
A week ago, Helen Beckwith
traveled to Brookings with her
daughter, Rose Briggs, and family.
Helen's grandson was playing in a
hockey tournament there. While
she was in Brookings, Helen also
had the opportunity to visit her fa-
ther and a couple of her sisters.
Her father lives in an assisted liv-
ing facility there. Helen said he has
a large bulletin board full of pho-
tos – he now has about 75 great-
grandchildren, so it is a challenge
to keep them straight.
Kevin Neuhauser went to town
Saturday to be on hand for a paint-
ing project at their house in town.
It sounds like he was more of a
spectator than a participant – he
freely admits that if you are paint-
ing the interior of a home, he is
probably not the person you want
wielding a paint brush. Mary and
Brianna were doing the painting.
Mary and Kevin went out to supper
before Kevin returned to the ranch.
Mary stayed in town to do some
cleaning in preparation for the
workmen coming Monday. Both
the floor installers and the cabinet
installers were scheduled for Mon-
day, so progress is being made. I
can't wait to see the finished prod-
uct. Kevin attended the bull sale in
Philip Tuesday.
Kelly Briggs said there isn't
much "fancy" news at their house
this week. The three young chil-
dren have been enjoying the nice
weather and Chase and Kelly are
kept busy with their everyday ac-
Mary Briggs spent last Thursday
with her mother-in-law, Lil Briggs.
Lil has been having a lot of back
pain, but some days are better than
others. Early last Saturday, Keva
(Briggs) Joens stopped by and
picked up Mary Briggs, and they
headed to Watertown to the State
B Wrestling Tournament. They
stopped in Pierre and picked up a
friend, and they were on their way.
Congratulations to Keva's son,
Zane, who earned second place in
the 106 pound weight class. The
ladies returned to the ranch late
Saturday night.
Here at Neuhauser ranch, it
seemed like the week passed in
kind of a blur. I was in Salem from
Sunday through Wednesday, visit-
ing our daughter, Jennifer, and
helping her with some projects.
Her husband, Ross, was attending
meetings in Washington, D.C., for
the week. While he was there, he
got to spend some time with our
daughter, Lori, which they both en-
joyed. I stopped in Kadoka to visit
my mother, Letoy Brown, Wednes-
day afternoon. I went on to Philip
and attended a Farm Bureau meet-
ing before returning to the ranch.
Thursday was spent catching up
around here, and Friday I was
preparing for company. Our daugh-
ter, Chelsea, and her husband,
Mike, arrived from Rapid City Fri-
day evening, and our son, Scott, his
wife, Corry, and their children,
Marisa and Austin, arrived from
their home in Spearfish Saturday.
It was a fun, busy weekend, and by
Sunday evening I was ready for the
couch and a blanket. Randy made
a trip to Union Center to pick up
some feed bunks last week, and he
also attended a card game at Kevin
This week, I am grateful for the
fact that the majority of our family
lives relatively nearby. It is so nice
to be able to drive a few hours and
be able to spend time together. I
can't imagine what it must have
been like for those settlers who
knew when they headed west, they
would seldom see their family
again. And they didn't even have
telephones or e-mail or skype or
any of the other communication
methods that we have now. I
wouldn't have liked that one bit.
I hope you'll enjoy the wonderful
weather this week. And for you
gardeners, you might want to start
watching your flowerbeds. If they
aren't covered with snow, chances
are the plants in the south-facing
beds will soon be poking through
the ground. Yahoo.

Governor signs first bills
by Elizabeth “Sam” grosz
Community news Service
It wasn’t quite midnight oil that
was burning February 20 at the
Capitol in Pierre, but it may have
felt that way to legislators trying to
beat a deadline.
That day, this year’s 26th in the
session, the rule is that a bill or
joint resolution must be out of its
house of origin.
Both sides were busy addressing
bills – either killing or passing
them – up until around 10 p.m. The
Senate finished just before that
hour, and the House went past by
about 15 minutes.
All in all, about 90 bills passed
through their hands that day.
By the close of the week, legisla-
tors had just two weeks left of the
regular run of the session.
Democratic leader Bernie Hun-
hoff, Yankton, noted during a news
conference on Friday that while
two weeks did not appear to be a
long time, much could still be ac-
“It’s like a nuclear half-life,”
Hunhoff said.
Senators dealt with in excess of
45 bills, while House members con-
sidered that same number.
Legislative history buffs remem-
ber times in the past when rules
were suspended so that debate
could go on past the midnight dead-
Committee and legislative agen-
das were somewhat lighter the rest
of the week, with the Friday House
and Senate calendars deferred
after less than an hour in session,
so that members could be on their
way home for the weekend.
Legislators expect to be back
working Monday through Thurs-
day this week, and Monday
through Friday next week. The lat-
ter week traditionally deals with
the final budget.
Then, after a two-week recess,
legislators will return to the capitol
on Monday, March 25, for the final
day. That is the day reserved to
deal with any vetoes the governor
may have made.
Legislative deadline met
for crossover of bills
by Senator John Thune
As a young high school basket-
ball player, it was not until this
time of year that I would allow my-
self to start thinking about playing
on the biggest stage in South
Dakota – the state basketball tour-
I remember the nervous energy
in the room as I sat through pep
rallies, boarded the bus on the way
to district championships, and sat
in the locker room minutes before
the game. I remember thinking
that the extra time I spent practic-
ing free throws, and running
sprints, and defensive drills was all
worth it for the shot to play at the
state “B” basketball tournament.
While I never had the opportu-
nity to play in the State “B” basket-
ball tournament, I know that the
leadership, teamwork, and dedica-
tion I learned on the court provided
me with essential life lessons.
These life lessons were also in-
spired by my time spent in the gym
with my father, Harold Thune. My
dad, who was a longtime teacher,
coach and athletic director at
Murdo, taught each of his kids and
players about the importance of
hard work and sportsmanship.
This year the Murdo auditorium
was renamed after my dad in honor
of his lifetime of service to Murdo
athletics. This was a special recog-
nition for him and our whole family
who grew up playing basketball in
the Murdo gym.
Spending time at the state bas-
ketball tournaments, I frequently
run into some of the athletes I
played against in high school who
have come to watch their own sons
and daughters compete in the state
basketball tournament. I know
each of them takes pride in seeing
their children enjoy and excel at a
sport that was meaningful to them.
Stories like these form some of the
great South Dakota basketball tra-
ditions, and bring together fami-
lies, communities and schools to
celebrate the accomplishments of
our student-athletes.
I hope that all of the participants
in this year’s tournaments take
time to enjoy the experience and
that each of the communities make
it out to support their teams. Good
luck to all participants in this
year’s tournaments, and I look for-
ward to seeing many South
Dakotans at the games.
South Dakota hoops

Here’s a brief review of some of
the South Dakota Legislature’s re-
cent action.
The Senate approved two bans
on texting while driving Tuesday
and sent it on to the House. The
first bill, SB142, prohibits texting
while driving on South Dakota
roads, and the second, SB44, would
jeopardize the commercial license
of a driver caught texting any-
where in the nation.
The House Health and Human
Services Committee voted seven to
five against HB1188, a bill that
would have kept mentally ill people
who have been found to be a dan-
ger from owning guns. Their names
would have been added to a na-
tional database, which is checked
prior to purchase. Main sponsor
Rep. Bernie Hunhoff, D-Yankton,
said the state is one of about 19
states not submitting information
about dangerous mentally ill resi-
dents to that database.
A bill to increase legislative pay
from $110 per official day of session
up to $123 squeaked through the
House 36-33 on February 20. The
following day, the Senate referred
the bill to its State Affairs Commit-
tee. Lawmakers currently receive
$6,000 per session, an amount
which hasn’t been raised in 15
The Senate State Affairs Com-
mittee and the full Senate unani-
mously approved two veterans bills
last week. The first designates the
third Tuesday of September as
POW/MIA working holiday and the
second designates August 7 as Pur-
ple Heart recognition day, also a
working holiday.
A bill increasing certain video
lottery payouts to $1,000 passed
both the House Commerce Com-
mittee and the full House, 39-28,
this past week. SB52 now heads to
the governor for his consideration.
A bill that would increase bond-
ing authority for the state’s four
technical institutes, HB1098,
bogged down in the Senate State
Affairs Committee February 22.
Upgrades for the Watertown and
Mitchell tech schools have been
completed and now the last phase
for the schools in Sioux Falls and
Rapid City are up next. The in-
crease in bonding authority from
$105 million up to $140 million
would pave the way for those proj-
ects. However, action was deferred
until financial info the governor re-
quested from the Bureau of Fi-
nance and Management could be
Persons hunting mountain lions
will no longer be required to wear
fluorescent orange exterior gar-
ments, if the governor also ap-
proves. The measure, HB1029,
unanimously passed out of the Sen-
ate before legislators headed home
for the weekend.
A lively debate in the House on
February 22 centered on the med-
ical care for certain unborn chil-
dren. While Rep. Bernie Hunhoff,
D-Yankton, urged passage to en-
sure prenatal care that would save
money by producing healthier ba-
bies, other lawmakers worried that
those low income mothers were il-
legal aliens. Several amendments
to that end were defeated before
final passage of HB1214 by 39-28
was accomplished, sending it off to
the Senate for its consideration.
The bill had been forgiven the
crossover deadline because of a re-
quested fiscal note attached to it.
SB27, which revises the design,
construction and equipping of a
veterans’ home near Hot Springs,
adding an additional 10,000 sq. ft.,
was approved by the House last
week and sent to the Governor for
his expected approval. The project
had been approved last year, but
revisions were made to the $6 mil-
lion facility which needed approval,
“It’s a good deal for the state,” com-
mented Rep. Fred Romkema, R-

An official from the new North-
ern Beef Packers processing plant
in Aberdeen made a short but im-
portant statement Friday during
the South Dakota Farmers Union
state convention: “I would like to
start off by saying, we’re open,”
said A.J. Munger, who got a large
round of applause.
Munger is the new director of
new business development, pricing
and marketing at Northern Beef
Packers. “It’s been a long road. It’s
been a rocky road at times, but
with a lot of perseverance, and help
from the community we’ve been
able to open our doors and it’s been
a good start.”
After suffering a number of set-
backs, the company started har-
vesting cattle last October. Now,
the plant processes 300 head per
day on average. The plant is owned
by Korean and Chinese investors
and getting to this point has not
been easy, Munger said.
“It’s quite a task building a beef
processing plant from the ground
up,” Munger said. “One of these
plants hasn’t been built in the last
35 years, so it’s been quite the chal-
lenge to go out and find the expert-
ise that it takes to get one of these
plants built and up and running.”
The plant is still working out the
kinks, making sure all of the sys-
tems “talk to each other,” Munger
said. “We’re getting pretty close,
and we should start adding produc-
tion here in the next few weeks.”
The company is working to ex-
pand its market. They’ve started
working with high-end distributors
in Chicago and New York City,
Munger said. They’re still finishing
the necessary paperwork, but
Munger said the plant could be ex-
porting meat to other countries by
the end of March.
Munger said. “Our studies have
shown that there are enough cattle
within 200 miles of the plant to
meet all of our needs,” Munger
said. And he said it’s quality beef
they’re processing. “We didn’t build
this plant in Aberdeen, S.D., by
mistake. We built it right in the
middle of prime cattle country, and
so far our grading quality has been
The plant will also be working
with the South Dakota certified
program, selling beef that were

The 420,000-square-foot plant is
known as a regional packer, more
of a niche-market plant as opposed
to major packers. “We don’t focus
as much on quantity, we want to
focus more on quality and produc-
ing that quality product,” Munger
There are approximately 10 re-
gional packers in the country,
Munger said, and the Aberdeen
plant is the most northern regional
packer in the United States.
Munger said Northern Beef Pack-
ers has over 400 employees, with
plans to increase that number to
600 in the short term. Most of the
production employees are making
anywhere from $12 to $18 per hour
starting out.
They have the capacity to
process as many as 1,500 head of
cattle per day on one shift. Munger
said with some capital improve-
ments it could be possible to move
to 1,800 head per day. That’s on
one shift. If they would move to two
shifts they could double the produc-
Munger said they’re focusing not
only on quality cuts but on safety,
trying to stay out of what becomes
a major news story if there is a re-
call. “We wanted to make sure that
we would have one of the safest
plants in the country. It seems like
every other month you’re hearing
about recalls. So we take great care
in making sure that all the bugs
stay off the meat,” Munger said.
“We’ve put in an industry-leading
number of food safety interven-
tions. We also have an individual
carcass ID system set up in the
plant. What that allows us to do is
that at any given time we can track
where a carcass is in our system.”

Veterans Administration Black
Hills Health Care System will host
a free, semi-annual women veter-
ans’ retreat through the post trau-
matic stress disorder (PTSD)
outpatient treatment program. The
retreat will be held April 19-21, at
the Fort Meade VA Medical Cen-
ter, two miles east of Sturgis.
The retreat is for women veter-
ans of all eras, from all across the
country, diagnosed with PTSD, as
well as female family members –
wives, mothers, adult daughters,
etc. – of male veteran's diagnosed
with PTSD.
According to Jill Broecher, public
affairs officer, in FY2012 we had
1,702 women veterans enrolled in
health care through VA BHHCS.
From what I’ve heard, this number
has been growing steadily the past
few years and is expected to con-
tinue growing. This is 6.4 percent
of the total number of veterans
served through VA BHHCS. This
retreat typically includes women
from a 300 mile radius of VA
BHHCS – although women from all
across the country are welcome –
and there is typically around 35
The retreat will focus on veter-
ans’ treatment and addresses psy-
chological, physical, social and
spiritual issues related to PTSD.
The retreats help women learn
more about the effects of war, as
well as other types of trauma. The
primary emphasis is to learn how
to cope with the devastating effects
PTSD can have on veterans and
family members’ lives. The pro-
gram also helps participants exam-
ine problem areas in their lives and
help them make healthy changes
and choices. There will be a partic-
ular emphasis on developing
healthier coping strategies and in-
creasing one’s social support net-
“The women’s retreat, in its 20th
year, seeks to help participants ex-
amine some of the basic questions
in their lives,” said retreat coordi-
nator Cathy Edler. “Facilitators
from VA volunteer their time to
help participants build a commu-
nity of people who are willing to
take time to support each other.
Participants will have the opportu-
nity to explore the basis of their
values and beliefs, as well as to
identify short and long-term goals
as a means of discovering or renew-
ing inner resources.”
The retreat is offered free of
charge. All meals and lodging are
provided at no cost to eligible par-
ticipants through the donations of
the Disabled American Veterans
Charitable Trust, as well as other
veteran’s service organizations and
interested groups and individuals
who want to support this program
The retreat is held at the Fort
Meade VA Medical Center, begin-
ning at noon, Friday, April 19, and
concludes at approximately 1:00
p.m., Sunday, April 21.
Participants must be pre-
screened. To be screened and regis-
