Emma Jarl was born on a Mel-
lette County homestead on April
7, 1914, to Joseph and Anna
(Homolka) Petranek. She had
three brothers and four sis-
She recalled going bare-
foot all summer and to
school. Then it snowed
before school was out.
“We ran all those miles
home and never froze
our feet,” she said.
Emma married Os-
wald Jarl, a Swedish im-
migrant, on November
14, 1937. They had two
children, two grandchil-
dren and two great-grand-
She said it wasn’t until
after they were married that
she became a cowgirl. And at al-
most 99 years young, yes, she used
a wash board, milked cows, husked
corn and worked in the fields back in the days.
Emma enjoyed raising chickens and wild birds; she had peacocks, geese,
ducks and more. Keeping up the yard and cleaning the swimming pool
was also important. Emma said she also worked at a café in White River
for $2 per week.
The couple had two daughters. Sonja Ruth went with Jesus the day
before her fifth birthday in 1948. Daughter, Sandra Lea went too in De-
cember 1998, after four years of fighting cancer. “Now I’m alone and
Jesus is near me to keep me safe here a the nursing home,” Emma added.
She is a member of the Nazarene Church, taught Sunday school in
White River for 40 years and she was the township treasurer for 25 years.
“When I was a young girl working for Governor Tom Berry’s son I
cooked for Governor Berry,” Emma recalled. In later years she also
helped take care of her grandson’s hunting lodge.
Emma said her favorite meals have been at holiday time and the fam-
ily is together; cooking was always her favorite pastime.
A special memory that stands out is when her daughter started play-
ing the organ at six years old. She was 11 when she started playing at
Emma and her husband traveled a lot, seeing 20 countries, and enjoy-
ing a cruise. Her brother-in-law took them all through northern Europe.
They visited Czech Republic where her dad and grandparents lived
under the Russian Rule. Africa was interesting, she added. Her husband
took some of the family to Sweden for Christmas to visit after 40 years.
“That is where I learned knitting and have knitted for 60 years,” Emma
She’s proud that her brother, Ed Petranek, has the Belle Fourche gym
and armory named after him.
Emma’s husband passed away in 1988.
After 75 years at the ranch home, Emma moved to the Gateway Apart-
ments in Kadoka. In a week’s time she became ill with spinal meningitis,
ending up in a two-week coma and then two months in the Kadoka
Nursing Home. Following her recovery she went back to her apartment.
Emma moved to the nursing home on 11-11-11. Her room is full of
craft items she’s made. In addition, there’s knitted dish cloths and no-
slip plastic covered hangers she’s knitted. She’s given them away and
donated many of them for fundraisers. Emma especially enjoys watching
the birds come to her bird feeder outside her nursing home window.

March Resident of the Month
A great accomplishment …For
more than ten years of planning the new
fire hall has been completed. The building
was constructed by volunteer members and
area residents. The concrete floor was
poured by Tines Construction with the help
of five members from the Ellsworth Air
Force Base, who donated their time. No
grants or loans were obtained for the build-
ing project and the entire facility was paid
for by contracting fire trucks to help fight
fires throughout South Dakota.
Over 325 people were served at their re-
cent pancake supper and plans are being
made for a grand opening in the Spring.

Interior Volunteer Fire Department and Rescue completes new fire hall
Spud Creek Rodeo Productions,
Dave and Nate Morrison, from In-
terior, SD, is bringing an event to
Rapid City on Friday, March 15
featuring a high paced, roughstock
rodeo of bareback riding, saddle
bronc riding, and bull riding fol-
lowed with an Aaron Watson con-
cert at the Pennington County
Events Center.
As Nate Morrison explains it,
“Western South Dakota is very ed-
ucated when it comes to rodeo
events and they know a good event
when they see one, and also know
a bad, poorly run event, when they
see one. They can tell the difference
between good stock and bad stock,
good rides and bad rides, and ac-
cording to the Western South
Dakota Rodeo Fan... they are want-
ing something fresh and new with-
out all the fluff.
“Straight up action where the
bucking stock and rides do the talk-
ing so to speak. We believe we have
found the answer to that call. Lim-
iting the event to only 10 bareback
riders, 10 bronc riders, and 10 bull
riders with the top 5 from the event
advancing to a championship
round, we can present the crowd a
high paced, non-stop action night
with 45 rides total that can be done
within two hours without losing
the crowds excitement and atten-
tion. By also limiting to 10 per
event, I can assure that
the stock and riders can
be of the highest quality
making the fan going
home excited about the
On top of the Rough-
stock Rodeo Action the
Red Dirt & Roughstock
Tour is featuring Aaron
Watson in concert imme-
diately following the
rodeo action. Aaron Wat-
son has released 7 #1
Hits on the Texas Music
Charts and is a fan fa-
vorite in the Red Dirt
Texas Music Scene. This
will be Watson’s first time
to ever perform a live
show in South Dakota
and he is excited about
the opportunity. Watson’s
shows are high energy,
straight up Texas country
music that everyone will enjoy.
The Red Dirt & Roughstock
Event in Rapid City will also be
featuring some of our local talent
as Christy Willert (pictured) from
Kadoka will be performing her
trick riding skills in between the
events as you saw her perform in
August during the Badlands Match
Bronc Riding event in Kadoka
which is also produced by Dave and
Nate Morrison.
Most all of the stock will be pro-
vided from our local area as well in-
cluding bucking horses and bulls
from the Morrisons, Wilsons, and
Walns. Local contestants compet-
ing include: BAREBACK: Kenny
Feidler (Phillip), Travis Sharp (In-
terior), Joe Wilson (Kyle); SAD-
DLE BRONC: Louie Brunson

“Our goal is to provide an afford-
able night of entertainment that
the whole family can enjoy.” says
Nate Morrison.

Read Ephesians 6:10-12
Satan does exist—our broken society testifies to his
reality. Those who ignore him do so at their own peril.
This is also true of Christians, because we are all at
war against him. Spiritual warfare is personal; Satan
crafts specific attacks for each individual. Though he cannot steal a believer’s spirit from God, he can
and does harass us physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Every ambush and frontal attack is
meant to defeat our witness so we can’t live a victorious Christ-centered life.
Our foe is not omniscient, but he is crafty. He observes our strong and weak points to determine the
best areas for attack. As soon as his quarry becomes comfortable and least expects trouble, the Adversary
springs a trap. Among his most deceptive tactics is hiding behind familiar faces in order to misguide our
fury. For example, he may tempt a husband to make an unwise financial decision that angers the wife
and leaves her feeling insecure. But the husband is not her enemy—he needs her love and forgiveness.
The enemy is always Satan and his legion of demons.
The first rule of warfare is to know one’s enemy, and thanks to Scripture, we can. The Bible also con-
tains an important assurance: “Greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world” (1 John 4:4).
The combined forces of hell cannot equal the supernatural power of a single believer. We have Christ
living within us—the same Christ who was triumphant on the cross and whose final victory over Satan
is prophesied in Revelation. Through Him, we can conquer Satan and win our unseen battles.

Somebody came up with the
idea that you cannot have your
cake and eat it too. I am not sure
where that came from, and I am
not exactly sure what it means. If
I cannot eat my cake, whose cake
can I eat?
I think it all depends on how
you present "the cake" in question.
One of the things most impor-
tant and strongly supervised in
our home by the Gracious Mistress
of the Parsonage has to do with the
presence of such food items as
cake. At times, I think she is overly
obsessed with some diet phenome-
I, on the other hand, am rather
open to the delicacies of such di-
etary niceties as cakes.
Like I said, there is a way to get
around everything. My problem is,
how can I have my cake and eat it
Recently my wife took a week's
vacation to New York to visit her
relatives. While she was away for
that week, I was in charge of our
little homestead. Whatever hap-
pened, happened because I did it.
Whatever didn't happen, didn't
happen because I didn't do it.
I have a simple rule in life. Do
what you like and have fun doing
it. My wife's rule in life is, do ex-
actly what I tell you and do it now!
When she is not present in the
home, especially for a weeklong
duration, I am the one supervising
the rules. And so, during that week
my rules ruled. I will not say I had
fun during that week, because I
would not want that kind of infor-
mation to be leaked to certain peo-
All during the week, I ate every
kind of delicacy I could wrap my
lips around. Not one shred of salad
could be found in the house during
the whole week. Salads were out-
lawed, desserts were in order.
On the day my wife was sched-
uled to return from her New York
trip, I had to go to school and pick
up one of my granddaughters. She
was sick and nobody else was
available but Yours Truly.
When I picked her up she did
not look quite as sick as I would
have figured, but who am I to
question the wisdom of a school-
teacher. We spent the entire after-
noon eating lunch at McDonald's,
shopping at the Dollar Tree and
just having a rip snorting time of
our life. If this is sick, may I be sick
every day of my life.
As a supposedly sick seven-
year-old, her energy ran her
grandpa firmly into the ground. I
am not sure I ever had that much
energy. It was great to spend an af-
ternoon with one of my grand-
daughters. Usually this is the
privilege of grandma and so I felt
honored to take her place for one
Towards the end of the after-
noon my granddaughter said,
"When will grandma get home?"
I calculated it and responded by
telling her that according to the
schedule she should be getting
How to have your cake and eat it too
home around 6 o'clock. As that in-
formation saturated her little
brain she then said, "Well, can we
have a surprise party for
Off to the store we went. Things
needed for purchasing to put to-
gether the surprise welcome home
party for grandma. There were
cards to purchase. I say cards be-
cause she could not choose be-
tween two cards and so we
decided, or rather I should say, she
decided to get both of them.
Women start early in life, don't
There were ribbons to buy and
then she saw a nice bouquet of
roses. We bought the roses.
All this time I was thinking
about a special project I had in
mind. That special project took the
form of a special welcome home
cake. I took my granddaughter
over to the case where all of the
cakes were displayed and invited
her to pick out one that suited her.
As far as I am concerned, a cake is
a cake and my favorite cake is the
one I am eating at the time.
She picked out a beautiful cake
and we went to the checkout
counter and paid for our wonderful
purchases. Now it was home to set
up our little welcome home party
for grandma.
My granddaughter spent quite
a bit of time drawing pictures on
the inside of the cards while I paid
special attention to how to display
the cake. I was sure that grandma,
who usually does not approve of
cake coming into our home, would
not disapprove of this cake if we
presented it right.
When grandma walked in the
door, we yelled "Surprise" and boy
was she surprised.
Then came the time for us to
present the cake and eat it as well.
Whoever says you can't have your
cake and eat it too needs to sit
down and talk with me. I have
found a wonderful way of having
my cake and eating it too without
the sneering disapproval of You
Know Who.
I like what the Bible says.
"There has no temptation taken
you but such as is common to man:
but God is faithful, who will not
suffer you to be tempted above
that ye are able; but will with the
temptation also make a way to es-
cape, that ye may be able to bear
it" (1 Corinthians 10:13 KJV).
God always provides the cake
and then invites us to eat it with

I remember one evening a few
years back, when a med student
was shadowing me as we exam-
ined a failing elderly patient in the
emergency room (ER). During our
evaluation it became clear that the
patient really was in the ER be-
cause he was slightly confused and
emotionally upset, not because of
heart disease or pneumonia or the
After we left the patient's side,
the student made a comment that
was really quite negative, and I re-
alized at that moment a certain
sad truth about how we all seem to
appreciate people in this society.
The student had devalued the in-
dividual not only because of the
emotional nature of the problem,
but partly because of the patient's
dementia and even, I dare say, be-
cause of his age.
What is the value of any individ-
ual? It is not hard to appreciate
the young talent whose life is be-
fore her and it looks rosy indeed.
And it is not hard to appreciate the
middle-life firefighter who has res-
cued many people caught in a
treacherous spot. And it is not
hard to appreciate the mature col-
lege professor whose brilliant lec-
tures bring his students to
But what is the value of the in-
dividual who is losing memory at
the end of a full life? What is it
that gives value to a person in this
society? What will happen when
resources of time and money to
help care for these people become
even more limited?
This is not to say that we should
pour a large amount of our soci-
ety's resources into overextending
a dying and suffering elderly pa-
tient. However there is no more
important principal in the field of
medicine than to realize the value
of every individual, no matter
what medical or psychological
problem, no matter what mental
capacity, and no matter what age
or stage of life.

Van Cliburn died this week. In
case you don’t happen to know who
Van Cliburn was, let’s just say he
was about the only classical pi-
anist to ever become a household
name. This happened back in 1958
when he won the Tchaikovsky
Piano Competition in Moscow and
returned home to a ticker-tape pa-
rade in New York. He was only 23
at the time.
And, to be sure, he was very
good. He started taking piano les-
son at age three when he was
caught at the piano playing some
music he’d heard his mother’s stu-
dents play. This would tend to
catch a parent’s attention to have
their three-year-old son sit down
at the piano and play a recogniza-
ble piece. From there, he debuted
with the Houston Symphony Or-
chestra at age twelve, and played
Carnegie Hall at age twenty. At
twenty three, he won in Russia.
Throughout his life, he performed
for all the presidents from Eisen-
hower to Obama. He tended to
play showy and difficult composi-
tions by Russian composers such
as Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninoff,
and he did it very, very well and
with style.
One thing I hadn’t heard about
him until lately was that he had a
memory lapse at a concert in Ft.
Worth a few years ago that shook
him so badly he fainted on stage
and had to be given oxygen. I can
relate to that. Concert memory
lapses are probably feared more by
musicians than almost anything
else. Just thinking about it makes
sweat appear on the forehead. I
should know. When I took piano
lesson in college, the final grade
each semester depended largely on
playing three classical pieces by
memory in front of several piano
professors. This was not a great
deal of fun. Nerves tended to play
up. I went through this process for
eight semesters and luckily always
got an A for the term, but it wasn’t
Even worse was giving a senior
piano recital. This wasn’t actually
required, I don’t think, but was
strongly encouraged. It involved
playing about an hour of classical
music by memory in front of music
professors, fellow music majors,
and friends and relatives. I played
pieces by Bach, Beethoven, De-
bussy, Liszt and others. My final
number was a flashy Hungarian
Rhapsody by Liszt. In the middle
section of the recital, I played a
Beethoven sonata that ran to
about fifteen minutes all by itself
in three movements from fast to
slow to very fast. Luckily, it all
went okay, but it was a relief to
have it over.
As you can imagine, learning
and memorizing an hour of diffi-
cult piano music is no simple
thing. I cut down on the other
courses I took that semester so I
could find enough time to practice,
practice, practice. Some people are
blessed with a memory that, if
they hear things once or twice,
they remember them. I am not. I
have to work at it. As a result, I
seldom put myself through all that
trouble anymore and just play
from music. Having the printed
music in front of me takes the
worry out of things enough that I
can play before a crowd and not
have my stomach tighten up and
churn. A lot of people get too nerv-
ous to play in public, but, after
you’ve been through a college sen-
ior recital, you can probably han-
dle it.
Unlike Van Cliburn, I was no
prodigy. I had some talent, but it
had to be brought out by a string
of good teachers. Mrs. England
started me out in fourth grade, got
me going, and gave me an interest
in music. When she moved, she
talked Elsa Peck into taking me on
for several years. During my last
years of high school, I took lessons
from Veronica Lakstigala who was
a concert pianist from Latvia. She
had conveniently married the doc-
tor in the next town over. In col-
lege, I had J. Earl Lee who was a
very kind man with a great love for
music. I lucked out in teachers and
am grateful to them all. Music has
been a big part of my life and has
given me much joy.
As I read recently, “CAUTION!
Exposure to music may cause sud-
den outbursts of joy, happiness, en-
ergy, creativity, awareness, &
spontaneous healing! Handle at
your own risk!” That isn’t too far
I did notice when I played for
church last Sunday, though, that I
probably haven’t been practicing
quite enough of late. You have to
keep right at it or you’re apt to suf-
fer decreases in coordination be-
tween eyes, brain, and fingers. Put
another way, if you don’t practice
for one day, you know it. If you
don’t practice for two days, your
friends know it. If you don’t prac-
tice for three days, the whole world
knows it. Guess I’d better quit
with this for now and get in some
practice. Fortunately, I enjoy doing
that for the most part so, piano,
here I come.
The Joy of Music
Lookin’ Around
by Syd Iwan
Lyle O’Bryan went to Terry and
Chris Baldwin’s on Friday after-
noon to help his granddaughter,
Cella Baldwin, celebrate her
twelfth birthday. There was cake
and ice cream, of course. Also there
were Brett and Tammy Prang,
George and Lorna Moore, and
Jodie O’Bryan. They all had a good
visit. Lyle, like many ranchers, is
wondering about the water supply
for his cattle this summer. He gen-
erally has enough water around
the barns, but some of the pastures
are iffy. He has rural water in his
east pasture and other supplies
there, but the west pasture has re-
ally only one good dam and then
some dry ones. A wet spring would
be good.
Chanel Romero also celebrated a
birthday this week, namely her
second. Her mom, Charlene
Romero, said her two children also
got to visit their grandmother, Jane
Romero, in Kadoka one day last
week while their folks ran around
doing errands. Charlene Ceniceros
was in Midland this weekend help-
ing Will Schofield with various
things and spending time with
Eric and Pam Osborn were in
Belvidere on Sunday afternoon
playing rummy with Greg Badure.
Greg won. Dana wasn’t home at
the time since she was in Kadoka
working at Discount Fuel. The
cards were played only after Eric
and Pam cut some wood and
hauled it back to their house. A
week ago Sunday, Wib Osborn vis-
ited Eric and Pam and played some
cribbage with them after dinner.
Pam said playing actual cards in-
stead of playing them on the com-
puter has some advantages. You
can interact and visit with other
people, accuse them of cheating,
Chuck and Merry Willard had
their daughter, Niki Kleinsasser,
and boys home for the weekend. On
Sunday, Merry and Niki were at-
tempting to highlight Niki’s hair by
pulling some of it through a cap
and coloring that. Chuck said it
was tricky and didn’t go well at
first. He said his hair was already
highlighted naturally with some
gray so he didn’t have to do any-
thing more to it. Chuck and Merry
were in Philip a couple days last
week visiting Chuck’s mom, Pat
Willard. Pat is trying to get ready
to move from her apartment at the
Senechal to the Silver Leaf As-
sisted Living. This involves pack-
ing, giving stuff away and so on.
Pat hopes to make the move later
this week. Her daughters and other
relatives are planning to come
help. It appears to be sort of a fam-
ily reunion in the making.
Michelle and Tyrel Mansfield
went to Rapid City after school on
Thursday and visited Michelle’s
folks until Saturday. On Sunday,
Tyrel got to church in Belvidere
with his grandma, Fayola Mans-
Marie Addison was visited in
Murdo last week by her grandson
and great grandson, John and Koye
Addison. Marie said she has a
bookcase at her apartment that is
of considerable interest to Koye. It
holds various pictures and knick-
knacks. Koye takes particular in-
terest in the Danish boat that looks
like it would be fun to play with,
but he hasn’t yet tried to get at it.
Marie said she is expecting the ar-
rival of at least four new great
grandchildren in the coming year,
and some fairly soon.
According to Larry Grimme,
there are about 25 cats that like to
sit on the Cadillac by his house. He
isn’t sure why. Perhaps it is be-
cause the cats aren’t very good
readers and think it’s a “Catillac.”
Jim Addison said there are only
30 days left in the girls’ basketball
season. Until then, Georgann and
he are likely to get in some more
bleacher time watching daughter
Jami play. Jim also said his son,
Royal, has recently moved closer.
He has been going to college at
Spearfish, but has now bought
some cows and is taking care of
them over between Norris and
Long Valley at the Steve and Shiv-
aun Williams place. Royal studied
criminal justice at Spearfish with a
view towards being a police or pa-
role officer. He actually has only
three credits to finish before he
gets his degree but hopes to do that
over the Internet instead of at
Spearfish. Plans after that are un-

Maxine and June shared a lunch-
eon at Maxine’s Friday.
Dan Taft was in Martin for phys-
ical therapy Tuesday and on
Wednesday he attended Christine
Dunham’s funeral. After the fu-
neral, Dan, Morgan and Heather
took Samantha’s car to Philip to be
worked on, and brought Susan’s
car home after it was repaired.
They also took the dog to the vet for
shots. Susan worked in the post of-
fice in Wanblee a couple days last
week. Dan was back in Martin for
another therapy session Friday.
Saturday afternoon Susan and
Morgan visited Nette and Howard
Gale and JoAnn Letellier were
happy to have the complete Dave
Letellier family visit this past
weekend. This is the first time
since Christmas that all the chil-
dren were able to be there. Anna is
in her fourth year at Black Hills,
and presently is doing her student
teaching at the Belle Fourche Mid-
dle School. Cooper is in his first
year of college at Casper. Hailey,
Jhett and Duncan were glad their
big sister and brother were able to

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 Co-op for nine years.”
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.”

The Stronger Economies To-
gether (SET) program is designed
to help rural communities/counties
to work together as a regional team
in developing and implementing an
economic development blueprint
that builds on the current and
emerging economic strengths of
their region. Currently two regions
in South Dakota are working in the
SET program with USDA Rural
Development and SDSU Extension
– the James River Valley Region,
and the Badlands/Bad River Re-
gion.  Seven states are participat-
ing in this third round of SET
funding, which allows for two years
of education and technical assis-
tance to the regional team.
The Badlands/Bad River partic-
ipating counties include: Haakon,
Jackson, and Eastern Pennington.
The group has met three times,
and will meet for Session #4 this
Tuesday night, March 12, in Mid-
land at the Open Bible Church. 
The gathering will begin with an
option city tour, including the Lava
Water Hotel, under new manage-
ment. Tours will leave starting at
4:15 p.m. from the church Fellow-
ship Hall, followed by a supper at
5:15 p.m. The session will begin
promptly at 5:30 p.m. and end at
8:30 p.m. Everyone wishing to par-
ticipate is welcome. Please meet at

measureable goals for economic de-
velopment in the region.  The
group is still open to new partici-
pants. Contributions from business
owners and professionals, parents,
educators, healthcare staff, farm-
ers and ranchers, elected officials,
and service providers would be wel-
come. Anyone from youth to senior
citizens are encouraged to consider

Lillian Carlson spent a few days
in the Avera McKennan Hospital in
Sioux Falls last week where her
granddaughter, Coleen Sprecher, is
an RN. Lillian has been have some
heart problems and hopefully is on
the correct medicine. Marlene Per-
ault went down on Wednesday to
get her mom, and they returned to
Kadoka on Friday. Before leaving
they celebrated Lillian’s great-
granddaughter’s birthday which
was March 2. She is named Lillian,
after her great-grandmother and
was five years old.
Rose Ann Wendell and her dogs
spent Saturday night at the home
of her parents, Joe and Betty Lou
Stratton. She brought her mom
home as Betty Lou had spent a few
days in Pierre helping Rose Ann in
her law office.
Terry Ireland of Sioux Falls
spent Saturday in Kadoka visiting
his mom, Thesa Ireland, and help-
ing Dylan celebrate his birthday.
He returned to his home on Mon-
day morning.
Kenny and Cindy Wilmarth at-
tended the District AAU Wrestling
Tournament in Wall on Saturday.
Their grandsons, Cedar, Younger
and Bridger Amiotte, of Wall, all
participated in the tournament.
Cedar took first place in his weight
class, and Bridger and Younger
each placed second in theirs. The
boys go to the regional tournament
in Rapid City next Saturday. They
are the sons of Tricia and Kyle
Amiotte. The Wilmarths said that
341 kids wrestled that day, and
they stood the whole time, as the
crowd was huge.
Amy Smiley is a patient in
Rapid City Regional Hospital after
being bucked off a horse on Sunday
evening. She was taken to Rapid
City by helicopter and according to
her dad, Merle Stilwell, it’s hoped
she would be out of ICU sometime

new venture in life and good luck
Robyn, you’ll do fine.
This area’s residents are enjoy-
ing very mild weather – March did
come in like a lamb, with several
days in Kadoka in the 50-degrees.
Other parts of South Dakota
weren’t so lucky with icy conditions
in the eastern part of the state. The
radio did say that I-90 from the
Wyoming border to Sturgis was
closed this morning (Monday) so
maybe this area will get some
moisture before the paper is out on
Wednesday. We can hope.
This week we were blessed with
many visitors.
Micki Word had several visitors
this week. Sydney and Phyllis
Word, and Linda Stillwell stopped
by to say hi. Bob brings the mail by
every day.
Dorothy and Darin Louder came
by to see Dwight and on Friday
Nelva and his wife, Janet, also
stopped in. It’s always a hit and
miss whether you’ll find him awake
or cat napping!
Ezperanza stopped by to visit
with Grandma Mary Bull Bear.
Mary also gets visits and phone
calls from her daughters on a daily
basis. On Friday, Amanda Reddy,
Mary’s granddaughter, came by for
a visit.
Lyle Klundt makes it in a couple
times a week to see his wife, Ruth.
Gary Petras stops in to visit and
to bring mail to his mother, Mary
Petras. Mary is getting so excited
about the nice weather we’ve been
having. She can’t wait to go outside
and sit and enjoy the fresh air and
Joy Parker enjoys her visits
from Renate and Ron Carson. She
is finally getting over her cold and
Alice Wilmarth continues to get
her daily visit from Rick Wilmarth.
She also had a good visit with her
daughter-in-law, Paulette.
On Saturday, Bob Tridle got to
go for a ride with his daughter,
Gina, his wife, Roseanne. Bob loves
the outdoors!
Lola Joyce Riggins and Shirley
Josserand came by to visit with
many of the residents. They bring
a lot of smiles into our home!

On Thursday, February 21, the
Kadoka Lady Kougars and the
Lyman Lady Raiders played for the
District 13 Championship. Both
teams came out playing strong of-
fensively and defensively. Kadoka
had a bit of an edge the first quar-
ter by attacking the basket and
drawing fouls. Raven Jorgensen
made two baskets, Taylor Merchen
a three pointer, Kwincy Ferguson
and Tori Letellier a basket each,
Marti Herber a basket and a free
throw and Katie Lensegrav two
free throws.
Both teams continued the inten-
sity in the second quarter. How-
ever, Lyman had the edge this
quarter with Kadoka committing
enough fouls to put Lyman on the
free throw line. Lyman was 8/11
from the line, which tied up the
game at halftime.
As the Kougars started the third
quarter, they weren't mentally pre-
pared for what the next 8 minutes
would bring. The Kougars quit at-
tacking the basket, scoring only 7
points.They also couldn't stop the
Raiders from scoring 24 unan-
swered points. The fourth quarter
ended up being a game of catch up
for the Kougars.
Both teams also committed a
total of 20 fouls in the fourth quar-
ter, which had both teams on the
line for most of the quarter. The
Raiders ended up winning the
game and District Championship

basket and playing solid defense.
Kadoka led 14-11 after the first
quarter with Tessa Stout making
two baskets, Kwincy Ferguson a
basket and two free throws, and
Marti Herber, Katie Lensegrav and
Raven Jorgensen a bucket each.
The Kougars kept up the inten-
sity the second quarter, outscoring
the Tigers 15-9. Kwincy, Katie,
Raven and Tori Letellier each made
a basket, Marti had a basket and
two free throws, and Shaley Herber
a basket and one free throw. Unfor-
tunately, Tessa Stout went down
with a knee injury in the second
quarter and was unable to come
back into the game.
The Kougars started the third
quarter on the sluggish side, scor-
ing only 7 points. Taylor Merchen
made two baskets and a free throw
and Tori a bucket. The Kougars
had a 7 point lead entering the
fourth quarter. Both teams did a lot
of fouling which put both teams on
the free throw line. Taylor was 5/9
from the line and Tori and Raven
were 2/4 in the fourth quarter.
White River shot 9/20 from the line
in the fourth quarter, but wasn't
enough to catch up.
The Kougars pulled off the win
49-41, which put them in the
Championship game with Lyman.

These bills passed the House

The 2013 Legislative Session is
rapidly coming to a close. Tuesday,
March is the last day for bills or
resolutions to pass both houses.
March 6 -8 are reserved for concur-
rence or conference committees to
iron out differences on certain
pieces of legislation which occurred
between the two legislative bodies.
For example, if amendments are
made in the Senate which changes
the original bill as it was passed in
the House, it will need to be re-
ferred to a conference committee to
work out the differences.
While there were around 600
bills and resolutions filed this Ses-
sion, typically just a fraction of
those will actually become law. One
of the most important functions of
the last week of Session is the ap-
proval of the General Appropria-
tions Bill which according to

these priorities. Among the many

From Senator Jim Bradford
Washington has had more than
a year to prepare for the across-
the-board spending cuts known as
the sequester. For months, Con-
gressional Republicans have been
warning of the effects that these
cuts could have on our national se-
What few people realize is the
sequester was actually President
Obama’s idea. The president pro-
posed sequestration and insisted it
become law. For months now I have
been attempting to get the White
House to comply with, and provide
key details about the sequester’s
impacts after the president signed
into law, my Sequestration Trans-
parency Act. This bill required the
administration to provide a de-
tailed plan to the American people
on the impacts of the sequester by
September of 2012, nearly six
months ago. After ignoring the law
and failing to plan for the se-
quester’s impact, the White House
conveniently waited until the
eleventh hour to issue media prop-
aganda on the potential state-by-
state impacts of the sequester.
After releasing these reports
and traveling on a 5,000 mile cam-
paign-style road show ginning up
fear about the calamitous effects of
the sequester, the president and
his allies would have you believe
that the only way we could prevent
these across-the-board cuts is by
once again raising taxes on hard-
working Americans. While I believe
there are better ways than these
across-the-board cuts to reduce fed-
eral spending, tax increases are not
the answer and I think it is impor-
tant to put the sequester into per-
spective. Not only has the federal
government had four straight
years of trillion dollar-plus deficits,
but federal spending has also in-
creased by nearly 20 percent since
2008. It seems to me that Washing-
ton should be able to absorb a 2.4
percent spending reduction to the
overall $3.6 trillion budget in a
smart and efficient manner. In fact,
2.4 percent, or about $85 billion, is
the amount of money the federal
government borrows every 28 days.
Even with the sequester, federal
spending is projected to increase
over last year.
I understand that certain pro-
grams important to many South
Dakotans will be affected by se-
questration. Again, I prefer to find
alternative savings to replace the
sequester, or at the very least, sup-
ported providing the administra-
tion with some flexibility to
implement the sequester in a more
targeted way. House Republicans
twice voted to replace the sequester
with targeted, alternative savings.
In the Senate, I supported biparti-
san legislation ensuring that prior-
ities vital to our national security
were protected from the president’s
sequester by instead targeting
waste, fraud, and inefficiencies
across the federal government.
However, the president and his
congressional allies have demon-
strated that they are not interested
in making smart, targeted reforms
or flexibility to implement the se-
quester, but instead are playing
politics to ensure that when the
cuts are enacted they can continue
their attempts to dodge responsi-
Rather than raiding taxpayers’
wallets to pay for wasteful govern-
ment spending by imposing higher
taxes, which the president contin-
ues to demand, we ought to be look-
ing for ways to stop wasting
taxpayer dollars and reduce gov-
ernment spending in a targeted
way. It is time for Congress to start
making spending reforms that
grow the economy and create jobs.
Lackluster Presidential
Leadership on Sequestration
By Sen. John Thune
People across South Dakota
turn to books for entertainment,
knowledge and relaxation after a
long day and the Noem family is no
different. Ever since my three kids
were young, we’ve made it a prior-
ity to spend time reading as a fam-
ily. It’s been a real blessing to see
my kids grow up and learn to enjoy
reading on their own. I also try to
make reading a priority in my life.
Although schedules can be busy,
there’s something to be said about
enjoying a good book from time-to-
I’ll be celebrating this year’s
“Read Across America” Day by
reading a few books to second
graders at McKinley Elementary
School in Watertown. Last year I
enjoyed participating in this event
while reading to students in ele-
mentary classrooms in Hayti and
Brookings. I also spent time in
Madison that day for part of their
Pride Days celebration.
An event held across the coun-
try, Read Across America is held in
honor of Theodor Geisel, but most
of us know him as Dr. Seuss.
Themes from “Oh, the Places You’ll
Go!” and “Are You My Mother?”
bond grandparents with grandkids,
and teachers with students.
There are ways we can all en-
courage children to pick up a book
instead of watching another show
on television. For example, we can
set a good example by making
reading a priority in our own lives
or by taking field trips to the local
library. It’s also important to keep
lots of books and magazines around
the house for kids to pick up and
start reading.
Read Across America Day
started on March 2, 1998 as an an-
nual event to raise awareness
about encouraging our young stu-
dents to pick up a book and read.
When kids are eager and excited to
read, this sets up an attitude and
excitement towards lifelong learn-
ing and starts a path towards suc-
cess as they go through school.
As Dr. Seuss so wisely wrote,
“You have brains in your head. You
have feet in your shoes. You can
steer yourself any direction you
choose. You’re on your own. And
you know what you know. And
YOU are the one who’ll decide
where to go.” I hope you’ll join me
in participating in Read Across
America Day. Contact information

"Look Beyond" is the theme for
Intellectual and Developmental
Disabilities Awareness Month
2013. The South Dakota Council on
Developmental Disabilities, South
Dakota Advocacy Services and the
Center for Disabilities at the USD
Sanford School of Medicine and
other organizations celebrate Intel-
lectual and Developmental Disabil-
ities Awareness Month in March,
and invite you to consider the true
meaning of this year’s theme,
“Look Beyond.”
Statewide, and across the na-
tion, organizations devoted to serv-
ing people with intellectual and
developmental disabilities are
planning special events in March
to raise public awareness of the
many abilities people have, regard-
less of disability. “Look Beyond” en-
courages people to understand that
when people with disabilities are
welcomed into local neighborhoods,
workplaces, houses of worship, and
schools – everyone wins. "This is a
time when our organizations focus
on encouraging the public to better
understand the people we serve,"
said Arlene Poncelet, Executive Di-
rector for the South Dakota Coun-
cil on Developmental Disabilities.
During Intellectual and Devel-
opmental Disabilities Awareness
Month, we encourage people to
learn more about the 6,000 people
in this state who have intellectual
and developmental disabilities and
to recognize that all of us have tal-
ents and abilities that we can offer
to make this a better place to live.
During March, Intellectual and
Developmental Disabilities Aware-
ness Month, get acquainted with
someone who has an intellectual or
developmental disability. You’ll
learn that everyone has something
to offer and that and when we are
all together our communities are
stronger, we accomplish more, and
everyone wins!
March is Awareness Month

Fertilizing Grass
As has been the case following
droughts in the past, many live-
stock producers are short of feed.
While there is a long list of poten-
tial, annual forage crops that could
be planted to help alleviate this
shortage, there are no magic fixes.
There is another solution that may
make more sense to some produc-
ers, fertilize the grass that you al-
ready have.
Perennial grass is a great scav-
enger, and hay land typically has
little available soil N even after
relatively large N applications.
Unless hay land has been fertil-
ized routinely, Phosphorus soil test
levels are typically low in western
SD, particularly on hillsides and
In the spring of 2003, a field ex-
periment was established on a
long-term intermediate wheat-
grass field in western Jones
County. The objectives of this
study were: 1. Determine yield re-
sponse at varying levels of both Ni-
trogen and Phosphorus compared
to unfertilized grass, 2. Evaluate
the effect on nutrient content of
harvested grass due to fertilization
levels, and 3. Evaluate cost effec-
tiveness of various fertilization
The field where the plot was es-
tablished was in the CRP for a
number of years, mostly interme-
diate wheatgrass with a small
amount of alfalfa. No fertilizer had
been applied to the field for several
years prior to beginning the study.
A soil test (0-6 inches) for the plot
area indicated the Phosphorus
level using the Olsen test was 3
ppm, which is very low. Rainfall
from April through June was
slightly above the long-term aver-
ages, with about 2” over normal oc-
curring during April.
Applied fertilizer P increased
yield, but was not significant until
the 60 Lb/A rate. Fertilizer Nitro-
gen rates of 30, 60 and 90 Lbs/A all
resulted in significant yield in-
creases over the untreated check.
Added N initially reduced forage
crude protein levels due to in-
creased yield and dilution, where
the 90 lb N rate increased crude
protein over the check. Consider-
ing all costs at current levels, and
assuming hay value at both
$150/ton and $200/ton, all N fertil-
izer treatments were profitable,
both compared to the unfertilized
check, and to the next lower rate.
The Nitrogen trial was repeated on
a new site in the same field in
2004. Rainfall was below the long-
term average. Although yields
were much lower than the 2003
trial, all Nitrogen rates again pro-
duced significantly higher yields
than the unfertilized check. As-
suming costs at current levels and
hay value at $200/ton, the 30 and
60 Lb/A rates of Nitrogen applica-
tion were profitable over the unfer-
tilized check, but the 90 Lb/A
Nitrogen rate lost money. Assum-
ing a hay value of $150/ton, all of
the Nitrogen application rates lost
The bottom line is that fertiliz-
ing tame grass with Nitrogen can
produce dramatic results, and be
profitable, but precipitation ade-
quate for good grass growth is cru-
cial. For more information or to

Winter is here and it is time to
think about maintaining horses
through the winter, says Rebecca
Bott, SDSU Ext. Equine Specialist.
"As the temperature drops, and
wind chill and moisture increase,
the grocery requirement of a horse
to maintain a body condition score
(BCS) of 5-6 will increase," Bott
Horses are typically hardy ani-
mals who can withstand cold tem-
peratures, wind chill, and moisture
(snow or rain). However, if two or
more of these factors happen at the
same time, it increases the chal-
lenge of them maintaining body
heat and condition.
She encourages horse owners to
assess their horses BCS frequently
throughout the winter.
"It is much easier to maintain
BCS, than to catch up if condition
has been lost," she said. "This is es-
pecially difficult in the winter and
for growing, gestating, lactating,
and hard working animals that al-
ready have higher nutritional re-
quirements than adult horses at
Feeding in the Winter
Horses ferment fibrous feeds in
their hindgut, explains Bott. The
process of fermentation creates
heat. Thus, feeding roughages to
horses helps warm them from the
inside out.
"As temperature drops, horses
require more feed to maintain
themselves at their current state,"
she said. "Roughage is the number
one go-to feed source for this be-
cause it provides gut fill, and more
heat than other feeds during the di-
gestive process."
She adds that grain can also be
used as a supplement to provide
extra energy during the winter.
Because horses don't adjust well
to sudden changes in the diet, Bott
says horse owners shouldn't pile on
extra grain in one day just because
the temperatures drop.
"Look at longer term weather
forecasts and make slow changes in
diets that seem appropriate for the
weather," she said.
For more information on feed-
ing, please refer to the iGrow Solu-
tion: Feeding Horses in the Winter,
found at iGrow.org/up/re-
Water is just as critical for
horses in the winter as any other
time. Water helps keep things
moist and moving in the digestive
tract. Without water, or with re-
duced intake, a horse is put at risk
for colic. Break the ice off of all
water sources twice a day or as
needed so horses can drink. Cold
water is much less enticing than
warm water during the winter.
Horses are likely to consume more
water if water tanks are heated.
Additional Methods for
Maintaining Warmth
Feeding roughage is one important
method for helping horses to stay
warm in the winter. Horses can
also be stalled in barns (provided
there is adequate ventilation).
Blanketing horses is another op-
tion. Be sure to select a blanket
that fits properly, and secure all
straps. If horses live outside, select
a blanket that is water proof. With
blanketing comes management.
Check horses regularly to make
sure moisture isn't getting under
the blanket. Be judicious removing
blankets when the day warms so
sweat doesn't build up and cause a
chill. Run in sheds, and simple
wind blocks are also excellent
measures for protecting horses
from cold.
Feeding horses in the winter: Relationship between
temperature, wind chill, moisture and groceries
Winter 2013 may provide some
challenges that ranchers have not
faced in the recent past, and man-
aging winter feeding costs is among
them, says Adele Harty, SDSU Ex-
tension Cow/Calf Field Specialist.
"However, proper winter feeding
is important to profitable cow-calf
production. To develop an effective
feeding program, there are some
things to evaluate prior to purchas-
ing feeds," Harty said.
Below is a checklist of questions
producers need to consider, along
with links to online articles, which
Harty provides to help cattle pro-
ducers develop the best winter ra-
tions for their operation:
•What are the primary forage
•Has that forage been tested for
quality? If not, take representative
samples for analysis.
•What body condition
1004-2012.pdf are the cows in?
Does body condition need to in-
crease or maintain?
•What are the cow's require-
ments based on body condition and
stage of production?
•Does the forage require addi-
tional nutrients (protein, energy,
minerals, and vitamins) to meet re-
•If yes, what feed options are
available as sources of needed nu-
trients? Determine availability of
alternatives, as well as feed deliv-
ery equipment needs and availabil-
Evaluate feedstuff options on a
cost/unit of nutrient basis to deter-
mine the least cost
Select the option(s) that meet the
cow's requirements at the least cost
for the operation.
Determine quantity needed and
purchase additional feed.
Harty encourages livestock pro-
ducers to work with a local SDSU
Extension Cow/Calf Field Special-
ist or State Beef Specialist
to assist in answering questions.
