Sometime between 5:00 p.m.
Monday, March 25, and 9:00 a.m.,
Tuesday, March 26, vandalism was
done at Midwest Cooperatives in
Two 250-gallon shuttles were
opened and 500 gallons of Durango
herbicide were emptied onto the
ground. Also, gas caps were stolen
from nine of 11 small engines
stored in the same general area.
The retail value of the herbicide is
over $10,000, while the missing
items are estimated at around
$100. On top of the loss is the cost
of the cleanup.
Walking from the elevator to the
offices, Jay Baxter, Philip site man-
ager, noticed a liquid when every-
thing should have been frozen on
the 20-degree morning. Then the
cleanup began.
“We got busy. It was a long two
days,” said Baxter. Though 500 gal-
lons is a very small percentage of
the herbicide the business has on
hand, it took many man hours and
involved many regulations to
cleanup. All necessary calls were
made immediately from Midwest
Cooperatives to city, county, state
and beyond. The incident was re-
lated to local law authorities, cor-
porate headquarters, the city of
Philip, the Philip Volunteer Fire
Department and others. Liquid had
pooled around the containers, and
pooled in the storm sewer, though
was stopped just feet from entering
the Bad River. None of the conta-
minent reached the river.
Immediately a pallet’s worth of
floor dry was applied. A backhoe
and an excavator were used to take
out the contaminated rock and soil.
Near the shuttles, this was shallow
digging because frost was still in
the ground. Rock and dirt at the
end of the storm sewer drain “was
more challenging,” said Baxter. “It
was difficult to get the equipment
down to the fill site and it was full
of large rocks and cement.”
“To ensure a professional
cleanup, we decided to dig approx-
imately five feet down and take all
rocks and soil to Pierre’s landfill,”
said Baxter. It took three semi-
loads to transport the material.
This part was completed around
8:00 p.m. Tuesday evening.
Haakon County Emergency
Manager Lola Roseth was one of
the officials contacted. “When there
is a hazardous materials (hazmat)
spill in Haakon County, it is my job
to notify the State Office of Emer-
gency Management duty officer
with the identified chemical,
amount of spillage, a detailed sum-
mary, resource requests, incident
commander data and other infor-
mation. If possible, I go to the
scene,” stated Roseth. “I was very
impressed with the quick response
and actions taken by Midwest Co-
op. They followed their protocol,
which is in accordance with state
law, and were very thorough.”
The next day, Midwest Coopera-
tives put in place a holding tank
below the storm sewer. With the
help of the city of Philip, and
Sustin Lurz and Radley Kennedy
we were successfully able to flush
and clean the storm drain by 6:00
p.m. Tuesday, said Baxter. “Water
samples and dirt samples have
been taken to the lab in Rapid City
to ensure this matter was profes-
sionallly handled. Now we are
waiting for the Department of (En-
vironment and) Natural Resources
to close this matter so we can re-
claim the land. We are going to
bring in boulders or large rock to
make it esthetically better than the
way we found it,” said Baxter.
“I feel fortunate that this was a
lower impact chemical as far as en-
vironmental concerns, but, again,
we treated this as any chemical
spill should be treated. The corpo-
rate office has staff who walked us
through assessing the situation
and support in ensuring this was
minimal impact, and the cleanup
was swift and professional,” said
Baxter. “Cost of the cleanup is un-
determined at this time. It will be
substantial. We’re committed to a
large number of man hours and re-
The PVFD tender truck was
used, and the PVFD personnel
were available if the clean-up re-
quired more help.
The Philip city police, Haakon
County sheriff’s office and the
South Dakota Highway Patrol
were all notified. “At this time,
they didn’t leave a lot of evidence
at the scene. The case is still open,”
said Sheriff Fred Koester. If any-
one has information concerning the
case, contact law enforcement.
Baxter believes the vandal or
vandals do not realize the mag-
natude of what was done.
Vandalism, chemical spill at Midwest
Dirt and rock had to be excavated from below the storm sewer. The sewer had to
be flushed of the Durango herbicide, which had to be pumped out and taken
away. Vandal(s) spilled 500 gallons of the liquid sometime Monday evening or
early Tuesday morning. None of the contaminant reached Bad River. This view is

The Philip High School drama
department will be performing
two one-act plays this year for its
all-school production. Perform-
ances will be at 6:30 p.m., Thurs-
day and Friday, April 11-12, in
the Fine Arts Building.
“... we are doing two one-acts,
though they are not associated at
all. Sort of a double feature of our
own,” said director Laura O’Con-
nor. “We saw them both per-
formed at the state one-act play
festival, liked them and wanted
to perform both of them. I also
wanted to try it this way this
year rather than doing a two-act
play as I usually do. It's been a
good decision so far. Both are
comedies, though “The Mous-
tache” is actually a political
satire – a stretch for me.”
“I have a lot of new kids on the
stage and to find a play to acco-
modate all of them would have
been quite an undertaking, thus
the reason for two plays,” stated
The comedy “27 Goldfish” was
written by Lance DeRoos and
was presented by the original
cast at Sioux Falls Lincoln High
School. It is full of hilarious situ-
ations and slapstick.
Three main plots are wrapped
around each other and keep the
action going strong. An im-
promptu cast has only minutes
remaining in preparing for a di-
rector’s-vision performance of
“Hamlet.” A PETA inspector is on
a mission to close down anything
and everything that doesn’t treat
animals better than humans.
This version of Shakespear’s orig-
inal tragedy has exchanged three
swine for 30 goldfish. This oddity
runs into complications when the
bagged fish begin going bellyup.
While trying to keep the in-
spector and her wimpy assistant
in the dark, the cast is entwined
in the gossip that one of the male
cast members is mistreating his
cast member girlfriend. The gos-
sip not only is rampant and is
reason for group retaliation, but
is wrong. The minutes tick by,
and the director still hasn’t in-
formed the two main actors
which part will be done by which
actor. Everything works out in
the end and the show must go on.
Brad Pfeifle is the avant garde
director. The inspector is por-
trayed by Rachel Parsons. The
rest of the zany cast is played by
Brad Pfeifle, Brian Pfeifle,
Amanda McIlravy, Quade
Slovek, Shelby Schofield, Keegan
Burnett, Kelsie Kroetch, Garrett
Snook, James Fitzgerald, Josh
Quinn, Nathan Wooden Knife,
Brooke Nelson, Sagan McClen-
don, Nelson Holman and Ted'Dee
“The Moustache” was written
by Davis Alianiello, who was 17-
years-old at the time. This com-
edy/political satire chronicals the
political rise to ruthless power by
a timid, wife-dominated wimp
whose sole attribute is he is so
nice. He is told to grow a mous-
tache to help his image as a
stronger, more self-confident
leader. The moustache slowly
takes over. He talks to it, it talks
back; all the while the wimp
changes into the opposite of nice
and meek.
The main character is played
by Sam Stangle. His best friend
and political consultant is played
by Carl Poss. His wife is por-
trayed by Jane Poss. The growing
and ever-dominant moustache is
played by Tate DeJong. Narra-
tors are Parsons, Brad Pfeifle,
Kroetch, Schofield and Nelson.
Other cast members are Brian
Pfeifle, Holman, Fitzgerald, Mc-
Clendon, Snook, Burnett, McIl-
ravy, Buffalo, Quinn, Quade
Slovek and Wooden Knife.
Brock Hanson and Cole
Rothenberger are in charge of
lights and sound for both shows.
All-school play double feature
In “The Moustache,” two of the narrators wonder if the audience will get the satirical point, while behind them the angry
citizens take revenge on the nice wimp who became their ruthless leader. More photos on page eight.
HCYW Easter egg hunt
The Haakon County Young Women’s annual Easter egg hunt was Thursday, March
28, in the HCYW Kiddie Park. The Easter Bunny was present for picture taking.
Three age divisions of one to three years old, four to six years old, and seven
years to third grade raced for plastic eggs. One egg in each cordoned-off section
of the park contained a ticket for a grand prize of a “basket full of stuff.” The one
to three year old division child to find the grand prize ticket in his egg was Jayden
Berdin. The seven year old to third grade winner was Ryker Peterson. The four to
six year old winner was Garrett Ladue, son of Kathy Ladue from Iowa visiting her
brother, Ron Larson. Shown is Dylan Terkildsen and the Easter Bunny.

During its monthly meeting,
Monday, April 1, the Philip city
council covered that the two street
projects for this summer are on
SPN personnel are on site and
beginning the construction staking
for the Wood Avenue and Walden
Avenue street improvement proj-
ect. The tentative start date for the
actual work is April 8. The start
point is still in question, when
going from the south to the north
or vice versa. The street committee
will help to determine that. “Be pa-
tient, it’s going to be a long seven
months,” said Finance Officer
Monna Van Lint. Council mem-
bers, particularly Marion Matt who
lives on Wood Avenue, are hoping
that neighbors will help other
neighbors with parking difficulties
during the street project.
The E. Pine Street and Wray Av-
enue project is scheduled to begin
mid to late summer. The council is
trying to get a firm commitment on
the start date, preferably begin-
ning before August. J&J Asphalt
currently does not have excess lia-
bility coverage, which is no prob-
lem for the council as long as they
can show proof of the coverage be-
fore they start work.
Building permits were granted
for Greg Arthur to put in a new
water line, for Kent Buchholz to
put in an egress window and a
deck, for Doug Hart to do emer-
gency sewer line repair, and for
Kevin Pfeifle to put in a 14’x14’
Until after a meeting Thursday,
the council tabled a permit for D&T
Auto Parts to put in an access road
across a drainage ditch. “It is your
land, but it is also storm drainage,”
said Mayor Mike Vetter.
A building permit for Marty
Hansen to move a house is under
review. Requirements are for the
footings to be at least 42 inches to
the frost line. “If we don’t have him
do it, nobody will have to do it ...
nobody wants to make him, but ....”

Lookin’ Around by Syd Iwan
I killed three birds with one
stone, so to speak, on Friday. We
had Good-Friday services sched-
uled at the church so I called
around and set it up to have a
township meeting at the church
hall before services and a church-
board meeting there afterwards. It
worked a treat. We were able to get
all three get-togethers done in one
This sort of thing doesn’t happen
very often it seems. Lives tend to
be busy, and getting five or six peo-
ple to agree on a time and place for
a meeting may take awhile. As a
result, it’s a nice surprise when
everyone can come at the same
time. It just happened to work out
on Friday because those needed for
the meetings were coming to Good-
Friday services anyway. Coming a
little earlier or leaving a little later
didn’t make much difference.
When mileage and time are a
concern in this far-flung area
where going to town involves at
least a half hour both going and
coming, combining tasks just
seems a sensible idea. In other
words, I saved two hours of travel-
ing time alone on Friday by sched-
uling three meetings on the same
day. Then too, besides the expendi-
tures of travel time and gas money,
it interrupts a day to put down
your tools and run off to town.
Sometimes it’s hard to get much
else done on those days.
Similar organizational high
jinks have been going on all my
life, it seems, just because we live
so far out in the sticks. If you’re
going to go to town, you might as
well do a bunch of stuff so you don’t
have to return right away. Wife
Corinne learned early on in our
marriage that my trips to town
were apt to involve a whole lot of
stops. I might visit the post office,
bank, hardware store, grocery,
court house, gas station and sev-
eral other places. I might even
drop off eggs here and there. Ten
to fifteen stops were not uncom-
mon. After awhile, Corinne would
inquire where all I was planning to
go before agreeing to ride along. If
the number of stops seemed exces-
sive in her view, she might decide
she had too much work to do at
home and couldn’t go along that
day. If she had someone she could
visit in town while I dashed here
and there, that was okay. Other-
wise, forget it.
By the way, doing one job right
after another is just fine with us
fellows. What we aren’t too good at
is multitasking. Gals have the edge
on us there. They seem able to
keep several plates spinning on
sticks at the same time whereas
we guys prefer one at a time. I even
get a little frustrated when I pre-
pare some meals. I find it difficult
to get the meat, potatoes, veg-
etable, salad and gravy all ready at
the same time. Far easier are one-
pot meals such as when you throw
a roast in the oven and later add
potatoes and carrots to the same
pan. Even simpler is unwrapping a
frozen pizza and sticking it in the
oven for a while or heating a can of
soup. Simplicity often wins the
This week, though, was a tri-
umph of scheduling. On Thursday,
we had to visit the clinic since son
Chance had a sore on his lip that
needed attention. After that, I sug-
gested we stop by the hairdresser
to see if we could all get haircuts
since Chance and I were getting
pretty shaggy. To my great sur-
prise, both gals happened to have
openings just then so Chance and
Corinne could get their hair
clipped at the same time with mine
being done just after. If we’d come
a little earlier or a little later, it
wouldn’t have worked out. We hap-
pened to time it just right, though,
so it did. I was pleased.
As you might imagine, I’ve about
run my course on combining
events. Luckily, there is nothing
much on the schedule that would
require it. In other words, I have
no plans to kill any birds with any
stones. As far as I know, there is
actually nothing specific scheduled
for the rest of the year although
something will no doubt come up. I
can happily plod from bill paying to
accounting to cooking to going to
church. None of this multiple-
meeting business or multitasking.
That’s fine with me. That’s actu-
ally the way I prefer it. There
might even be enough time to sit
on the deck occasionally and listen
to the meadowlarks sing. They
have recently returned so the time
to enjoy them has, of necessity,
been added to my “busy” schedule.
Now might be a good time to go do
that. Catch you later.

Here be dragons ... by Del Bartels
Ancient maps of ship routes often depicted uncharted areas of water
with an artistic rendition of a sea-going dragon and the warning “Here
be dragons.” This has been interpreted by many historians in one of
two ways; either it was a whimsical way of saying the area was un-
known and possibly void of any land, food and fresh water, or it was a
way of saying that the unknown was simply dangerous.
I believe, in actuality, it was an enticement for sea-faring adventur-
ers to go find the dragons. By doing so, the area would then be charted.
The unknown, even if it be dangerous, was what many early explorers
craved. To find a water route to silks, to exotic spices, to even regular
trade items was the centuries-long push to explore the world. Such
grand adventures have been the starting point for many legends and
myths. Who is to say that the New World doesn’t still hold a lost city
of gold or a fountain of youth? Adventurers, by definition, prized any
newly discovered area as a reason for the adventure. Never before seen
grand canyons, mountain ranges, islands, jungles or whatever could
be described as an area full of the treasure of discovery. A new civiliza-
tion, such as the Incas, could be said to be a city of great value to the
adventurer’s heart, a type of city of gold. Early explorers, in order to
want to be such explorers, had to have a love for life and for the un-
known. This could be described as a youthful lust for life, a fountain of
The unknown, the dangerous, the enticing can often be seen in his-
tory and literature being depicted as dragons. Family crests displayed
over the fireplace mantel or on the knight’s shield often had a silhou-
ette of a dragon. The Chinese empire is the land of the dragon. Being
said to be a dragon slayer gave a knight in shining armor an enviable
reputation. Even today, the correlation still exists. It wasn’t too many
years ago when a common phrase stated by corporate problem-solvers
was that they were going out to slay some dragons. Movies, video
games, cartoons and even songs portray dragons. Who can forget the
mighty and magical Puff?
We need more areas where a blazing sign should exclaim, “Here be
dragons!” The worst thing that can be said about any job, come the end
of the day, is that it was boring. What child wants to grow up to be bor-
ing? Yet, almost every child’s eyes light up when the word “dragon” is
mentioned. The beginning of kindergarten can be frightening, mostly
just because it is still unknown until the youngster lives through it. A
paraphrase being stated after most neat things is, “Now that I know I
can survive it, can I do it again?” Your first job, your first kiss, your
first solo drive in the family car, your first ... well, anything ... can be
a dragon. Adventurers reveled in this. The label on ancient maps
wasn’t a warning, it was a declaration of adventure. I want to boldly
go forth to a place where there are dragons.
The fifth session of Stronger
Economies Together will be held
April 9 in Philip. The group invites
anyone in the region interested in
economic development to the Bad
River Senior Citizen’s Center on
Center Avenue in Philip at 5:00
p.m. for free supper and discussion.
The Badlands/Bad River Region
has a unique opportunity to tune in
to the pulse of employment and in-
dustries in South Dakota and this
region. Two guest speakers will
highlight the evening’s discussion.
Mary Cerney is the long time re-
search analyst for the Governor’s
Office of Economic Development.
She will present data about the
companies that show interest in
South Dakota, and how that infor-
mation is disseminated. She will
talk about their workforce develop-
ment grants that provide skills to
potential employees. She will also
talk about target industries and
supporting industries that might
fit South Dakota, and retention/ex-
pansion efforts – website http://sd
Bernie Moran leads the South
Dakota Labor Market Information
Center in Aberdeen. She will focus
more on the employment aspects –
current jobs, potential jobs and
characteristics of our regional labor
force. She will share projections
and opportunities specifically for
the region – website http://dlr.sd.

A request has been made, and
agreed to, for the city of Philip to
administer the recreational trails
program grant for the Philip Trails
Project. Land easements are being
investigated so a proposed walking

Rural Livin’
early Season
wheat Disease Update
While winter wheat producers
are anxiously waiting for warmer
temperatures to see if there is a
chance of a crop, and spring wheat
producers are waiting for the op-
portunity to plant, there are re-
ports of rust development in sev-
eral southern states in wheat
fields and nurseries. Leaf and
stripe rust have already been
found in Texas, even earlier than
2012, which was much earlier than
normal. Stripe rust has also been
observed in Mississippi, Arkansas
and Louisiana. Stripe rust was
seen in Arkansas back in the be-
ginning of December, which may
be the earliest it has ever been
seen it there.
South Dakota producers will
need to watch the progression up
from Texas this year because it
could be a concern if the conditions
are right. Reports of stripe rust
and leaf rust from Texas are im-
portant, because weather systems
often transport the rust spores
from these regions into Oklahoma,
Kansas and on up through Ne-
braska to South Dakota. If stripe
and/or leaf rust continues to de-
velop in the southern states, pro-
ducers may need to evaluate the
feasibility of fungicide applications
on susceptible varieties.
SDSU Extension Plant Pathol-
ogy Specialists and Field Special-
ists strive to keep producers in-
formed, but growers can also mon-
itor the situation on the USDA Ce-
real Rust Laboratory website:
s.htm?docid=9757. On that web-
site, visitors can access the current
rust situation, 2013 and past
years’ cereal rust bulletins, rust
observation maps, and a wealth of
information on cereal diseases.
University and private individuals
can also submit rust and other ce-
real disease observations for their
area to contribute to the reports.
New Fusarium Head Blight
Prediction Center
The Fusarium Head Blight Pre-
diction Center has been re-
designed and the new version is
now active. The growth stage in
which wheat is vulnerable to
Fusarium Head Blight (FHB or
scab) is certainly a ways off for
South Dakota, but it’s good to be
aware of the tool, which can be ac-
cessed at: http://www.wheatscab.
The website offers risk assess-
ment for roughly the eastern half
of the United States. Visitors can
choose a state to zoom in on their
area, choose the model of either
spring or winter wheat, the sus-
ceptibility of the variety and see an
overview of the risk of scab for
their location.
The map is populated with both
FAA and AgNet weather stations,
which can be clicked for up-to-date
information at the site. More de-
tailed information can be accessed
by clicking “Query”, and then the
weather station of your choice.
Scab risk and probability, temper-
ature, precipitation and humidity
are shown for the previous week at
that site.

A soil health workshop was pre-
sented Monday, March 25, at the
Philip Fire Hall. It was sponsored
by the Haakon County Soil Conser-
vation District, with expertise
given through the United States
Department of Agriculture’s Na-
tional Resource Conservation Serv-
ice. The seminar was open to the
The two-hour session used table
top models. Though aimed at the
agriculture/farming side of soil
health, the information can also be
useful for gardeners.
Jeff Hemanway, NRCS soil qual-
ity specialist, Huron, presented
three soil health demonstration
models that are now available
through the district. The presenta-
tions include how management
changes can affect soil structure,
water erosion, water infiltration
and wind erosion.
Under cropland conditions,
runoff and erosion are accelerated
by tillage and water infiltration is
substantially reduced. How water
moves through the soil is affected
by inherit soil characteristics and
changes in management. Soils that
are tilled bare are susceptible to
wind erosion. Hemanway said that
tilling also destroys the benefits of
organic loosening done by decaying
root systems, worms and other fac-
Sheila Trask, Haakon County
Conservation District manager,
said, “Jeff Hemanway, soil scientist
of Huron, gave a great demonstra-
tion of the three soil health mod-
ules – wind erosion, infiltration,
runoff – that HCCD now has avail-
able to use in schools, farm shows,
“Well, tonight's soil seminar at
the Philip Fire Hall was quite fas-
cinating,” said Elke Baxter,
founder of the Philip Garden Club.
“There were demonstrations of
wind erosion, water erosion and
water penetration in varieties of
soil. If I had any doubts or ques-
tions about rototilling or just dig-
ging under my raised beds versus
not – they've all been erased and
answered. The amount of water
being utilized by non-tilled soil ver-
sus tilled is astounding, as is gen-
eral soil health. Sure made a be-
liever out of me.”

arrange for these models to be used

tions, contact Trask at 859-2186

Tillage may be the worst thing
right now that could happen for soil
in South Dakota fields, said conser-
vation officials.
Spring tillage is a tradition that
is steeped deeply into American
agriculture. Now, more and more
producers are realizing that tillage
is not in the best interest of their
soil’s health.
“Tillage was once considered nec-
essary in order to prepare a proper
seed bed for planting. Now, we
know that we can produce as much
or more grain without tilling the
soil,” said Jason Miller, conserva-
tion agronomist with the Natural
Resources Conservation Service,
“Tillage passes reduce surface
soil moisture, but more alarming is
that fact that tillage is incredibly
destructive to soil; it is like a tor-
nado going through a house,” said
Miller. Tillage collapses and de-
stroys organic matter and soil
structure. “Those macro pores in
the soil structure are essential–
they are what helps water to infil-
trate the soil profile,” he said.
“The possibility of 2013 being an-
other dry year should have produc-
ers rethinking their use of tillage,”
said Miller. In a tilled condition,
soil is vulnerable to erosion. “As
dry as the soil profile is starting out
this year, even getting the crop
seeded will be difficult without a
concern for wind erosion,” said
Miller. Winds during the spring
easily pick up soil particles on
tilled fields before crops can be-
come established.
“Reducing or eliminating tillage,
increases surface residue, builds
organic matter and preserves soil
health,” said Miller. Improved
cropping systems for building soil
should include no-till, diverse high
residue producing crop rotations
and cover crops.
Producers interested in learning
more about soil health or wanting
technical assistance for implement-
ing a soil health management sys-
tem on their farm or ranch should
contact their local NRCS office or
visit the Soil Health Information
Center at www.nrcs.usda.gov.

Farm families that have had 100
or 125 years of life on the farm or
ranch can be honored during the
South Dakota State Fair, August
Farms and ranches have long
been the foundation of South
Dakota history. Many of these
farms and ranches have been the
same families for many years. The
South Dakota Farm Bureau along
with the South Dakota Depart-
ment of Agriculture would like to
recognize and honor these South
Dakota Century Farms.
If your family has retained own-
ership of a farm or ranch for 100
years or more in South Dakota, and
if the farm consists of a minimum
of 80 acres of the original farmland,
you may be qualified in having
your farm or ranch honored as a
Century Farm.
If your family has owned at least
80 acres of the same farm or ranch
for at least 125 years, you are eligi-
ble to apply for Quasquicentennial
Farm recognition.
The recognition ceremony is
scheduled to start at 10:00 a.m.,
Thursday, August 29, at the state
fairgrounds in Huron.
Application forms are available
online for both the Century Farm
and the Quasquicentennial Farm
recognition at www.sdfbf.org or
tury-Farms, or by calling 605-353-
8052. All forms must be completed
and notarized before being re-
turned by August 12 to the South
Dakota Farm Bureau, P.O. Box
1426, Huron, SD, 57350.
Century Farms have been recog-
nized at the State Fair since 1984
by the South Dakota Department
of Agriculture and South Dakota
Farm Bureau and since the pro-
gram was started over 2,400 farms
and ranches have been honored.
Last year, in honor of the 125th an-
niversary of the State Fair, the two
organizations began honoring
Quasquicentennial farms as well.
That tradition will continue this
year. Recognition of the Quasqui-
centennial Farms will immediately
follow the Century Farms program.

March 23, 2013, at Somerset
Court, Mildred Young’s daughter,
Carol, had invited guests at the
Somerset guest dining room for her
mother’s birthday. Attending were
Mildred Young, Frank and Jean
Craft, Russell Hicks and Joe Hicks,
Carol and Lee Bendickson, and
Kay Daugherty. Carol had remem-
bered that Mildred liked lemon pie
better than birthday cake. She
brought a bouquet for her mother,
too. Mildred is about as old as I am.
Saturday, we had a movie,
“Words From the Heart.” I couldn’t
hear much of the dialog, so I was
glad when M.R. Hansen came for
scrabble. Barbie came along later
and we had a nice visit.
My newly adopted great-grand
sent a nice bunch of colored draw-
ings. Thank you, Kaleb. I will post
some on my door.
Thank you, Gay Logan, for your
note and a more complete address
for our friend, Hazel Thompson:
Ponderosa House, Apt. G-28, 430
Oriole Drive Spearfish, SD 57783.
I may try again to write to Hazel.
My grandson, Andrew Klassen,
and his wife, Yiqing, San Jose,
Calif., sent a beautifully hand-
printed letter and photos of their
daughters, Pearl, fourth grade, and
Marie, kindergarten. Pearl sent
three jokes that were also in lovely
printing. I will tell you. “How does
an earthworm turn down a party
invitation?” “Thanks, but I’m not in
the mud!” “What do you call a spi-
der who’s eaten too may flies?”
“Fatty Long-Legs.” “What goes

At Somerset Court, Marilyn
Bailie was joined by her husband
for supper on the 24th and lunch
and supper on the 25th.
Somerset Court resident, Irene
McKnight, went out to lunch on the
24th with her son, Stan, and
daughter, Beverly McLeod. March
24, the wind howled around the
chimney pots all day.
The Rapid City Journal had
some good news. Some fine photos
of Yellowstone ponds steaming and
a little bird about the size of a
wren, called a “dipper.” The dipper
can dive into the warm springs for
up to 30 seconds, in search of food.
Also there is a bird called the
“Skimmer,” which flies just at
water level and skims off insects.
The Rapid City Club for Boys is
planning to move to 960 Campbell
Street in July to a building twice as
big as its present location.
We had nondenominational
church services with Rev. Richard-
son on March 24. He told us that he
had asked a bus load of boys about
Easter. “What is Easter all about?”
The first replies were all enthusi-
astice about Easter bunnies. But
one boy knew that it was about
Jesus and when he went to heaven.
Rev. Richardson continued, offer-
ing treats to boys who would find
answers to some Easter-oriented
questions, and bring them to the
Boys Club. This little quiz was a
way to get the boys to thinking
about the true meaning of Easter.
Those who attended church serv-
ices were Lois Schulz, Charlie and
Joanne Hathaway, Lucille
Huether, Annetta Hansen, Shirley
Hodgson, Don Stensgaard, Floy
Olson, Connie Stevens, and her
daughter, Teri, Blanche Harmon,
Joyce Herron, and Vivian Hansen.
Jack Humke played the piano for
singing several hymns. Thanks,
M.R. Hansen came for scrabble
and we had a good game. David K.
Hansen, Ft. Pierre, came to pick up
some books by Thor Heyerdaht and
we had a good visit.
Monday, March 25, we had crafts
with Amy with Sandi there to help.
We peeled and stuck on ears, tail,
nose, vest, and bow tie on bunny
shapes and the bunny is holding an
egg with a nice verse on it. Those
attending were Mildred Young and
her helper, Kay, Lucille Huether,
Marilyn Oyler, Marcella Kraft,
Shirley Hodgson, Eileen Tenold,
Fred Smith, Addie Rorvig and Vi-
vian Hansen.
Our Monday movie was “City
Slickers,” and I liked it because I
could hear the speakers. The
scenery was fine too, and the action
was strong and well-acted.
M.R. Hansen came for scrabble
and Barbie brought me some of her
wonderful lima bean and ham
soup. Thanks, kids. I feel so looked
after. And Sandi brought me a
crispy from the donut shop without
asking. Thank you.
I got two typed letters from
David Hansen, both postmarked
from Sioux Falls (thank you). But
he actually posted them at Vivian.
He would have posted one at Virgil
(Virgil is my husband’s name) but
Virgil does not have a post office.
David uses a red ribbon in his type-
writer to remind us of the national
debt. He writes of boyhood memo-
ries such as the time he and James
and Eddie Raverty walked to Cot-
tonwood, (some 13 miles). That was
on Good Friday, 1964. They went to
visit the Hoard kids, who came to
school in Philip.
Thank you to my daughter, De-
lores (Mrs. Don Denke) Pavillion,
Wyo., who writes in long hand, a
good newsy letter covering the long
and hard-working winter with the
lambing and the trips to Casper for
Don’s chemo treatments. Richard
does the feeding. She is thankful
for Richard and for the other kids
who drop in from time to time to
help out.
At Somerset Court in the guest
dining room, Nellie Morse enter-
tained some family members to
supper March 24. Happy birthday

Fred Smith celebrated his birthday
March 31.
We had the activity of ring the
rabbit with winners, Marilyn Butts
and Bert. Players included Sandi,
Susan, Jim Holmes, Mildred Young
and Kay, Floy, Fred, Bert, Irene
McKnight, Addie, Marcella and Vi-
At bingo, the winners were
Agnes, three times. Alma Gruenig,
Rene Cox, Helen Amundson, Mari-

13th, Maxine Kilmer, 18th, Irving
Amundson, 21st, Mildred Young,
24th, Thelma Frame, 25th, and
Lulu Yeager, 31st. Thank you to
Jack Humke who came to lead us
in singing “Happy Birthday, God
Bless You. Chef P.J. made a huge
two layer white cake with frosting
in the middle of chocolate, and on
top was a chocolate fondant, which
is a soft candy. We took a photo.
Vanilla ice cream and hot coffee
were served with it.
Lucille Huether had a called at
bingo time, her minister from Wall,
Curtis Garland.
Thank you to Barbara Hansen
who came and joined us for birth-
day treats and then we had a
scrabble game. She won, of course!
And thoughtfully, she brought me
a nice ripe avocado.
Melissa Snively, my great-grand-
daughter, of Gillette, sent photos of
two-year-old Teagan playing in the
snow. Thanks. Looks like they had
lots of snow. Melissa made bread
from scratch the other day. Hey,
Melissa, I am proud of you to main-
tain the old traditions.
Wednesday, March 27, we had
the activity of climbing stairs with
Susan and Sandi. Thank you, girls.
There was a good turnout. We re-
ceived generous Somerset bucks for
participating. Also, the evacuation
chair was practiced from third floor
to second.
In the afternoon, we had a table
of whist with Eleanor, Irene A.,
Susan and Ina. And a table of ba-
nanagrams with Lucille, Margaret,
Irene C., Addie and Vivian. Then
we played quiddler. Coloring eggs
was a late afternoon activity. I be-
lieve that we colored six dozen!
Thanks, Shawn and Sandi, it was
a fun activity. Those joining were
Marcella, Eileen, Bert, Marilyn
Butts, Fred, Agnes, Grace, Eleanor,
Margaret, and Vivian. We took
photos. We had cups of dye to dip
the eggs in and wax pencils to draw
pictures or write on the eggs with.
They were very pretty. We hope to
have them for our Easter party on
Friday, the 29th.
Another feature going on at Som-
erset Court is to guess the number

27, 2013, the civil engineers poured
two concrete pillars which will
later be broken to measure their
strength. GCC of America, a ce-
ment producing company, has re-
cently donated an x-ray diffraction-
ater which will be useful in the
SDSM&T civil engineering depart-
ment in research and development
and in identifying substances in
concrete and cement.
Lots of Easter cards are coming
in the mail these days. Thank you
to Chris and Cindy Klassen, Fall
City, Wash. They sent photos of
them with Andy and family in the
Big Basin Redwoods. Chris’ dad,
Bob Klassen, keeps busy writing to
people all over the world. Thank
you to Hazel Thompson, old neigh-
bor from Philip, who now lives at
Spearfish. She said that her apart-
ment is okay. She is able to go
places with her niece, one of her
brother, Chuck’s, daughters.
Thank you to Sarah Butcher,
who lives in Woodbridge, Va. They
have had only one snow this win-
ter. Kelsie was home from college
for a spring break. Virginia’s
spring comes earlier than here.
They are looking at gardening cat-
alogs. Sarah and I share lots of
memories of when she and her two
sisters and one brother lived in
Philip, just down the street, and
they could walk to my house. We
“worked” pulling weeds and haul-
ing branches and washing clothes
out back with a wringer washer.
We made cookies and read books
and took naps.

After a decade of sniffing out ex-
plosives with a nose-to-the-ground
work ethic, Jet is retiring from the
South Dakota Highway Patrol.
Jet, an 11-year-old Belgian
sheepdog, began his career with
the highway patrol in 2003 as a po-
lice service dog trained to detect
the odors of many different com-
pounds that could be used to con-
struct explosive devices.
Jet officially retired March 6.
Governor Dennis Daugaard issued
a proclamation marking the occa-
sion, saying, “It is important to
honor veteran police service dogs
who are faithful, loyal and devoted
to their responsibilities and provide
a valuable service to their South
Dakota communities.’’
Lt. Scott Sheldon has been the
dog’s handler for the past decade.
“The K-9 explosives detection unit
is different from the K-9 narcotics
unit. We’re not like the dope dogs.
We don’t want to find anything,”
said Sheldon
Jet has been used to sweep
through the state Capitol and other
facilities and locations, said Col.
Craig Price, superintendent of the
highway patrol. “He is also able to
detect recently fired weapons at
venues such as the Sturgis Motor-
cycle Rally,’’ Price said. “He has
been a great partner to Lieutenant
Sheldon and has helped with many
seizures and the capture of crimi-
Price said the explosive detection
duties will be assumed by Trooper
Michael Dale and PSD Raica.
Based in Pierre and deployed
throughout the state, Jet com-
pleted protective sweeps of the
state Capitol during legislative ses-
sions, Supreme Court hearings and
other official functions. Sheldon
and Jet also responded to bomb
threats and provided dignitary pro-
tection functions including assign-
ments for the United States Secret
Service, police and sheriffs’ depart-
ments, schools and universities.
“Jet is a very social dog but
knows when it is time to work,’’
Sheldon said. “When he is off duty,
I give him his food and his kennel.
He doesn’t need to worry about obe-
dience training after work. Just
like any other enforcement agent
with the patrol, Jet becomes more
focused when he is on duty.”
Jet will be released from South
Dakota service into the care of
Sheldon and his family. “I’ll have to
keep him in his kennel for a while
when I am putting on my uniform,’’
Sheldon said. “He knows when it is
time to go to work, and now that he
won’t get to go with me, he’ll be a
little cranky.”

Edna Joy, age 94, of Midland,
S.D., died Friday, March 29, 2013,
at the Philip Nursing Home.
Edna M. Eckert was born on
July 10, 1918, to John and Marie
(Koerner) Eckert. She was raised
at the family farm nine miles south
of Midland. Edna was baptized and
confirmed at St. Peter’s Lutheran
Church. There were eight children
in the family, Edna being the oldest
girl was responsible for helping her
mother with the chores and
younger brothers and sisters. As a
young girl, she was not too excited
about playing with her doll as she
had real babies to tend to. She
walked or rode a horse to the coun-
try school two miles from her home
which she attended through the
eighth grade.
After the eighth grade, she
worked for other families babysit-
ting and other odd jobs. Edna went
to work for Fern and Archie Joy,
taking care of their children. There
she met her future husband,
Harold “Stub” Joy. They were mar-
ried about a year later. They hon-
eymooned in the Black Hills with a
new car Stub purchased for $600.
Together they worked long hours
at their service station and lived in
an apartment at the back of the
Their first child, Sharon Kay,
was born in 1944. When Sharon
was 18 months old, they moved
into the house where Edna would
live for the next 63 years. In 1948,
a son, Larry Dale, joined the fam-
ily. As a family, they enjoyed vaca-
tioning in the Black Hills, fishing
and checking cows together. Their
home was a second home to many.
Edna moved to the Silverleaf As-
sisted Living in Philip in 2009. In
2012, she moved to the nursing
home in Philip. In both places she
was lovingly cared for by their out-
standing staff.
Edna was always very active in
her community. She was in several
clubs and a member of the Trinity
Lutheran Church, where she was a
Sunday school teacher, Mission
Band leader and a member of Ruth
Circle. She enjoyed walking,
sewing and had made many quilts
for her family, and baking rolls and
cookies which she shared with
many friends and family over the
years. Most of all she enjoyed
spending time with family.
Grateful for having shared her
life include her daughter, Sharon
Hemmingson and her husband,
Dave, of Philip; her son, Larry Joy
and his wife, Barb, of Pierre; five
grandchildren, Tammie (Marty)

Dona Mae Mitchell, age 77, of
Elko, Nev., died Wednesday,
March 20, 2013, in Elko.
It was a warm winter day in
Culver City, Calif., on January 28,
1936, when Dona Mae England
came into the world, the second
child and only daughter of Sarah
May (Reasoner) and Carlyle “Ted”
England. Her father had been out
celebrating her birth and later,
misspelled her name on her birth
certificate; she loved the story and
the specialty of the spelling de-
lighted her. She quickly learned
what an older brother was and
adored Carlyle “Carl” from then
until the day she died.
Tragedy struck this little family
early when at only 34 years old,
Sarah died in the spring of 1939.
Dona Mae, at the age of three, was
sent to a boarding school at this
time, for over a year until Ted mar-
ried Thelma Dorthea Knapp and
she got to go home with her new
mommy, daddy and older brother.
Dona Mae completed her educa-
tion in southern California, attend-
ing University High School but
graduating from Santa Monica
High, Class of 1954. During high
school, she worked at a Santa Mon-
ica hospital, meeting her lifelong
treasured friend, Isabelle Barks,
with whom she shared a birth date
and a most precious friendship.
There she noticed a handsome or-
derly as well. She would tell the
story of how she would quickly eat
her lunch, then go outside, peering
through window waiting for him.
After he finished his lunch, she
would race inside and down the
hall just in time to intercept him
coming out of the cafeteria. Young
love blossomed and in May of 1955
Dona Mae married Donald James
Weldon, becoming the proud wife of
a U.S. Navy sailor. To this union
two children were born, Michael
Dean in 1956 and Rebecca Suzanne
in 1960. As is often the case with
young love, this relationship ended,
but not before moving north into
the southern Bay Area of Califor-
Dona Mae began her venture
into single parenting down the
street from one who would become
one of her two most favorite friends
of all her life, Liz (Fuentes) Fultz.
Liz had a single, good-looking
brother, Donald Frank Fuentes,
who soon became Dona’s second
husband in April of 1964. This
union was blessed with another
daughter in November of 1968,
Diana Christine. They enjoyed 37
years together of laughter, family
gatherings, car business ventures,
nice homes, and the raising of two
daughters in Campbell, Calif., near
to both of their parents and all of
Don’s siblings and their families.
After the daughters were grown
and gone, business ventures
caused a move to Elko, Nev., in
1991, where they began a new life
near the base of the beautiful Ruby
Mountain Range. Although hating
to leave California, they both
quickly grew to enjoy their new life.
Donald passed away, very sud-
denly, in October of 2001.
Dona Mae had a passion for our
language and words; she had a vo-
racious appetite for writing letters,
reading, crossword puzzles – in
ink, and the game of scrabble in
which she could be a ruthless com-
Dona was blessed again with
“young love” at the age of 67 when
she met and married Dean Harold
Mitchell in April of 2003. She had
met her match in scrabble, in wit-
tiness and an appreciation of Hol-
lywood’s old movies. Dean and
Dona Mae spent almost 10 years
together sharing laughter, wits,
and game playing. Suffering a
stroke in August of 2011, her
health continued to decline until
Dona Mae went to be with her pre-
cious Lord Jesus on the first day of
spring, March 20, 2013, in Elko.
Dona Mae spent the last couple
years of her stepmother’s life writ-
ing about her wonderful memories
of her growing up years, to Thelma
and thanking her. This was not
only lovely and compassionate; this
was an act of great forgiveness.
Dona was always able to search for
joy, the good in people and life no
matter what happened to her …
this light will be missed.
Grateful for having shared her
life are her husband, Dean Mitchell
of Elko; her children, Michael
(Peggy) Weldon of Lancaster, Ohio,
Rebecca (Rocky) Williams of Philip
S.D., and Diana Fuentes of Reno,
Nev.; six grandchildren, Jeremiah
Adkins, Amber (Ron) Eaton,
Joshua (Tiffany) Weldon, all of
Lancaster, Ohio; Joshua (Jamie)
Williams, Jonathan (Carrie)
Williams, Lacy Williams, all of
Rapid City; 11 great-grandchil-
dren; her brother, Carl (Marie)
England of Vallejo, Calif.; and sis-
ter-in-law, Lotty Fuentes of Red-
wood City, Calif.; and a host of
nieces and nephews.
Dona Mae was preceded in
death by her parents; her steppar-
ents; her husband, Donald
Fuentes; a sister-in-law, Liz Jones;
a nephew, Doug Fultz; and a
brother-in-law, Joe Fuentes.

Hope everyone had an enjoyable
Easter gathering! It was a little
chilly finding those hidden Easter
eggs. The little ones seemed to
enjoy it anyway. It is a tradition.
We had some nice days last week.
With those warmer temperatures,
and even with the lack of moisture,
the lawn grass has started green-
ing up in places. Jerry and I
worked on some tree roots, from
tree stumps, we’d had taken out.
Jerry brought his tractor with
bucket attached to town, trying to
break loose some chunks of cement
along a sidewalk, where Mike and
Emma Root used to live. We bought
that property a number of years
ago. And with tree stumps gone, we
decided it would be nice to get
those chunks out, making it easier
to mow. Well, were we in for a sur-
prise! Some of those chunks of ce-
ment turned out to be huge chunks
of cement. It would be interesting
to learn how they got there and
who put them there. From the
looks of them you wouldn’t have
thought it would be much of a prob-
lem to clear them out. But, when
you got to the part under the
ground, it was a whole different
story. And, then, it was raking the
deer, you do know what I mean,
that was all over the lawn. If,
someone could come up with a dia-
per for deer, they would be rich.
Needless to say, I was not having
pleasant thoughts about those deer
as I raked, and raked, and raked.
But, on a positive note, all that rak-
ing cleared the lawn of dead
grasses. Guess it’s all in how you
look at things, right? I’m thinking
I better stop reminiscing about all
the fun Jerry and I had this past
week and get on with the news.
We were sorry to hear that
Edna Joy passed away. Stub and
Edna were a big part of the Mid-
land community. The service sta-
tion and the apartment they lived
in at the back of that service sta-
tion at one time are no longer
there. It was torn down a number
of years ago. The house they even-
tually bought and moved into years
later was bought by Lawrence
Stroppel and he and Marlene now
live in that house. In the obituary
of Edna Joy it told of Stub and
Edna being married and going on a
honeymoon to the Black Hills in a
new car Stub had just bought for
$600. I did like reading that bit of
information. For anyone wishing to
read her obituary you can go to
www.rushfuneral home.com. We
wish to extend our sympathies to
the family of Edna (Eckert) Joy.
Easter Sunday dinner guests at
the home of Judy Daly were her
mom, Marie Anderson of the Sil-
verleaf in Philip, Bill and LaVonne
Wheeler, Pierre, Steve and Julie
Daly, Carson and Dane, Lynette
and Tim Hullinger and Shania and
Bruce and Linda Kroetch, Philip.
Judy keeps us updated on her
grandsons, Carson and Dane, and
the journey of the trailer house we
once had and which now belongs to
Steve and Julie. Though they
haven’t had time to put it where it
will eventually be, the boys talked
dad into getting the TV hooked up
in that trailer house. So, Grandma
Judy, Carson and Dane, watched
TV in that trailer house a while
back. Love those stories and their
excitement over the whole thing.
Thanks for sharing, Judy.
Barb Jones said she and Morrie
had a rather quiet Easter gather-
ing at their house. Her mom, Ar-
line Petoske, Philip Nursing Home,
was there along with Jeff and Jen
Jones, Stetson and Maysa.
Jerry and Joy Jones had a
rather busy week. Wednesday,
their granddaughter, Cassidy
Trapp, came for Easter break from
School of Mines in Rapid City.
Thursday, Jerry and Joy attended
the Easter party at the Deep Creek
School. Their grandson, Zak
Sinkey, goes to the Deep Creek
School. Betty Sinkey was also at
the Easter party as Zak is her
grandson, as well. I think Joy
summed it up well when she said,
“Always fun at country schools.”
Those of us who had the privilege
of going to country schools have
great memories of those years.
There is just something special
about country schools.
Thursday evening, Scott and
Loni Olson and Molly of Devil’s
Lake, N.D., arrived at the home of
Loni’s folks, Jerry and Joy Jones.
Loni said they have a lot of snow at
their place in North Dakota.
Thursday, Chauncey, Wyatt, and
Emily Trapp came from Pierre to
Grandpa and Grandma Jones’.
They attend school in Pierre, their
mom, Debbie Trapp, works in
Pierre during the week and week-
ends they come home where dad,
Mike Trapp, has kept the home
fires burning. Debbie had to work
Friday, so came when she got off
work. Friday, all went to Good Fri-
day services at Trinity Lutheran
Church. Trinity Lutheran and
Open Bible Church share Good Fri-
day services, taking turns. Follow-
ing church services, all of the
above, plus Dick and Gene Hudson
who were also at the church serv-
ice, went to Trapp home for pizza.
Earlier Wyatt Trapp had taken ad-
vantage of everyone being home
putting them to work helping him
plant potatoes on Good Friday. You
know what they say about planting
potatoes. In order to have a suc-
cessful crop they need to be planted
on Good Friday. You can’t argue
with those old timers who know,
now can you?
Easter guests at Jerry and Joy’s
were the Olsons, the Trapps, Russ
and Cindy Sinkey and Zak, Jodie
and Bob Schremp and Baxter,
Dupree, Neil Jones and Cody and
Audrey Jones. Joy reports they had
their traditional treasure chest
hunt in which clues at different
places lead them to that treasure
chest. What a neat tradition!
Shorty and Mickey Woitte’s
daughter, Robin and Josef Opitz
and Kris came for Easter from Har-
wood, N.D. They were all Easter
dinner guests at the home of their
son, Joe and Bobbi Woitte, along
with Joe and Bobbi’s daughter, T.
J. and Kevin Kombs and girls of
Rapid City. Bobbi’s sister, Jenny,
and daughter of Sioux Falls were
also there.
Easter guests at the home of
Calvin and Patricia Saucerman
were Miles and Laura Saucerman
of the Denver area, Brent and Julie
Saucerman and kids, Hot Springs,
Johnnie Saucerman’s two sons,
Devin, who goes to Mitchell Tech
and Colten who is in high school at
Tea, and Johnnie’s daughter, Al-
isha and John Oldenberg, Philip.
Roger Witte, Pierre, stopped in for
a visit.

I had a phone call from Mary
Ann (Beckwith) Stoner, Philip,
today. She was asking how Alice
(Donovan) Venner was doing. Mary
Ann Beckwith, Alice Devine, and
Ruth Bergesen were friends and
classmates in high school at Pierre,
graduating with the class of 1947.
Tina (Fosheim) Haug, Tana
(Anderson) Mauck and little Lila
(2) and Nathan (5) drove up to visit
Terri (Anderson) Fjellheim Friday,
March 15. They spent the weekend
there returning home Sunday.
While at Terri's, they attended a
baby shower for Jaylene Traversie
in Pringle. It snowed the duration
of their visit and reports are
Nathan really had fun shoveling off
Terri's large deck (twice). They
found the Black Hills very beauti-
ful with the fresh snow coming
Brigit and Lucas Schofield and
Edith and Suzy Schofield are plan-
ning a Schofield/Fosheim family re-
union on June 8. A newsletter is
being put together concerning the
reunion, so be watching for that. I
know a lot of time and work has
been put into organizing this whole
reunion get-together.
Easter guests at Randy and
Holly Nemec’s were Kelly Vosberg
and Dena Harmon, Ft. Pierre,
Brian, Morgan, Tanner and Taiton
Ortlieb, Black Hawk, (Katey had to
go to Texas for work), Tyler,
Chelsee, Addison and Joey Rankin,
Murdo, and Tyler, Angel and Emry
Nemec, Midland.
It was a rather different Fos-
heim sisters Easter gathering this
year. It was always a time when
the aunts and uncles and their sib-
lings got together. Now the aunts
and uncles are not with us and are
but a memory. So, it was us cousins
and siblings. But we had a great
time. A time of sharing memories
of family! Keith Hunt had the DVD
of his mom, Ida Hunt’s funeral
service, as some of the cousins were
unable to make it due to weather.
The pictures of those Fosheim sis-
ters on the DVD brought back
memories of other Easter gather-
ings, as a group picture was always
taken at those Easter gatherings.
So, we have started another tradi-
tion of picture taking. The group
picture is now of cousins at those
Easter gatherings. Of Esther and
John Schanzenbach’s family, Ivan
was there, of Till and Danny Mulc-
ahy, JoAnn and Paul Bork and
Shelby, and Gavin Snook, Kim-
berly and Luke Nelson, Aiden and
Noah, Aberdeen, of Emma and
Mike Root, Sylvia Huber, Denise

Michelle and Cam Meinzer, Oscar
and Keenan Gonzales, California,
(Keenan’s mom, Jenna Tolton,
couldn’t be there because she is
over in Afganistan). Nancy Tolton
was also there. In all there were 44
people there. A smaller crowd then
usual, but we all agreed, some-
times smaller crowds are nice, you
have more of a chance to visit with
folks. There was the usual Easter
egg hunt and lots of good food. We
want to thank Christine Niedan for
all she did to make this Easter
gathering possible. I know Teresa

Greetings from sunny, cool, dry-
as-a-bone northeast Haakon
County. There are lots of birds fly-
ing overhead these days, headed
north, but they don't seem to be
bringing any moisture with them.
We had a few snowflakes on Easter
Day, and we were thankful for
every single one of them, but we
need more rain or snow, and soon!
The weatherman is talking about
the possibility of precipitation next
weekend, and I certainly hope he is
I have spent some time in the
yard recently, clearing off flower
beds, pulling grass out of the as-
paragus patch and winter onion
patch (tedious job), raking up pine
cones, etc. – just general spring
yard work. I also got the water
hoses out so I could give some of
the perennial veggies and flowers a
good soaking, trying to give them a
chance of producing this year. If
the weather continues to be dry, I
think the vegetable garden will be
a little smaller this year. Other-
wise, it will be difficult to keep
things watered.
Ron and Helen Beckwith are
going to have some watering chores
this year. They planted a bunch of
trees last weekend. Cody Briggs
was in the community, removing
trees from tree rows in a field north
of Beckwith's house, so they trans-
planted some of the trees to serve
as a windbreak around the house.
I hope they are successful!
First of all, congratulations to
Erin (Briggs) and Aaron Horn on
the birth of their new baby daugh-
ter, Anika Elise. She was born
March 28 and is the first child of
the Horn's. Proud grandparents
are Cole Briggs and Connie Moore.
Duane and Lola Roseth's son,
Rhett, came to the ranch Thursday
evening for the Easter holiday.
Easter Sunday, they went to
church at Deep Creek, followed by
Easter dinner at Dick and Gene
Mary Neuhauser came to the
country Thursday night as she had
Good Friday off from work. Kevin
said they celebrated Good Friday
by cleaning up dead trees from
their yard. Mary went back to
Pierre Saturday night to attend
church. Sunday, they took Easter
dinner to Highmore and shared it
with Kevin's mother, Ruth
Neuhauser, as well as Mary's par-
ents, Maurice and Katherine
Schlechter, Polo. Kevin and Mary's
daughter, Sarah, shared Easter
dinner with friends in Sturgis, and
daughter Brianna and friends at-
tended a potluck dinner at the
Pierre Methodist church.
Ed Briggs, his friend, Beth,
mother Marge, brother Lynn, son
Casey, and niece Rochelle, were all
in Spearfish Easter Sunday to join
his sister, Janet, and her friend,
Larry, for Easter dinner. The group
enjoyed the feast put on at a local
restaurant in Spearfish. They re-
turned to the ranch later Sunday,
and Casey went back to his job at
Watertown that evening. Beth
went back to her home in White
River Monday afternoon after she
finished Ed's chores. (Wow! I hope
Randy doesn't read this.) Kevin
Neuhauser stopped by for a visit
Monday afternoon. Tuesday, Ed at-
tended a meeting of the county
Mary Briggs worked at home for
half a day Friday, then after doing
some household chores she went in
to Pierre to help care for Lil early
Friday evening. She stopped and
picked up Mexican food, which Lil
loves, and shared supper with Lil
and one of Lil's other caregivers –
a very capable young woman
named Kylie. Lil enjoyed the sup-
per and visiting, and Mary re-
turned to the ranch later in the
evening. Lee Briggs has been busy
planting. You have to have faith to
be a farmer – if it doesn't rain, the
seeds won't grow, but if it does rain
and you haven't planted, you will
be out of luck also! We just have to
trust in God and hope for the best.
Granddaughter Cattibrie Riggle
came to the ranch Saturday after-
noon, and Keva, Seth and Zane
Joens arrived Saturday night.
They all attended sunrise services
at Deep Creek Church Sunday.
There was a nice crowd, and they
all enjoyed a delicious breakfast
following the church service. Rea
and Kinsey Riggle arrived at the
ranch about noon Sunday. Later in
the afternoon, they spent some
time scouting out locations to take
Seth's senior pictures. When they
got Seth rounded up for the photo
shoot, they were in the middle of
some snow flurries. Keva and Mary
are both excellent photographers,
and I'm sure they got some great
photos. Mary said there was one
lesson learned – don't sit on the
bare brown ground that can cam-
ouflage cactus. Good point! (That's
a pun.) Mary said she was not the
one who learned that lesson on
Dick and Gene Hudson attended
Good Friday services in Midland
Friday evening. That evening, they
were supper guests of Mike and
Debbie (Jones) Trapp and several

ner at Billy and Arlyne's. Bruce

erdeen Monday. Billy and Arlyne
attended the prayer service for
Edna Joy Monday evening in
Following church Sunday, Nels
and Dorothy Paulson joined their
friends, Dale and Myrna Hart-
mann, and family for Easter din-
ner. Dorothy said there were 36
people there, so there was lots of
visiting to be done. One of the
guests is a young lady from China
who stays with the Hartmann's
and works for a local computer
company. Dorothy stopped to visit
the Bruce's on her way home.
Chase and Kelly (Ness) Briggs
and family celebrated Easter with
the Ness family near Pierre. All of
Kelly's sisters were there, and they

tend the Sederfest meal at the

I found this suggestion that in-
terested me – the quickest way to
dry herbs is to lay a sheet of news-
paper on the seat of your car,
arrange the herbs in a single layer,
then roll up the windows and close
the doors. The herbs will dry
quickly and your car will smell
great. – I don’t doubt they will dry
quickly most of the year up here,
but not sure about the aroma. If
you’re worried about the ink, we
carry end rolls of unprinted news-
print in our offices.
Here’s a fun experience for
younger children. Items needed
are a clear glass jar or glass, cotton
ball, a bean seed and water.
Fill the jar with the cotton balls.
Place one or two bean seeds be-
tween the balls and the jar side so
it can be seen. Do not put a lid on
the jar. Wet the cotton balls so
they are moist but not soaking
wet. Within a few days the bean
should begin to sprout. With the
seed being up against the jar side
children can view the seed sprout-
ing and growing.
The word checkmate in chess
comes from the Persian phrase

If you saw the movie “Lincoln,”
or even if you didn’t, I highly rec-
ommend reading the book it was
based on – “Team of Rivals – The
Political Genius of Abraham Lin-
coln” by Doris Kearns Goodwin. It
is a thick book, but it goes into a
lot of detail about Lincoln and his
political cabinet and why he chose
them. It covers everything, all the
way through the assignation. The
Haakon County Public Library
does have this book, as well as an
audio version.
A book I just recently found out
about is “Behind the Scenes.” It is
a memoir by Elizabeth Keckley, a
former slave who became the
modiste at the White House for
First Lady Mary Lincoln. Book de-
scriptions note that it mostly fo-
cuses on the years Keckley was
with the Lincolns.
I’d also recommend “The Spell of
the Yukon.” It is a book of poetry
by Robert W. Service and the
poems feature the Yukon gold
rush. My favorite is “The Crema-
tion of Sam McGee.” I know it
sounds awful, but there is a twist
to the poem that anyone who has
lived through a cold winter can re-
late to. The book is still in print or
the poem can be found online and
on YouTube recited by Johnny
Cash and others. Teenagers even
liked this book of poems.
Spring sports of track and field
and golf are starting as the school
year heads into its final nine
weeks. I found this quote I’d like
to pass along to our local athletes:
The five S's of sports training are
Stamina, Speed, Strength, Skill
and Spirit; but the greatest of these
is Spirit. – Ken Doherty

April has arrived and with it the
payment of your real estate taxes
by the end of the month and by the
15th your income tax and that is no
April Fool’s joke either.
As the grass is greening up, our
backyard has been full of deer graz-
ing various times of the day, the
robins can be spotted enjoying the
sunshine and green grass too. So
spring is in the air.
Monday, Bill and I went on a
mission to find out why I had an
ache in my face/throat/jaw. The
first stop was Philip and Dr. Ron
Mann sent us on to Rapid to see an
endiodontics specialist. Do I grind
my teeth? You bet, that was deter-
mined about 40 years ago, but one
of those handy-dandy athletic
mouth guards handles that after I
wore out the first one I had. No real
solution, but antibiotics was recom-
mended. Went in the wrong office
to begin with in Rapid and who was
there but Dr. Dave Coolie who used
to hunt at our place and the
Milesville area. He took a few min-
utes away from his patient to show
me his latest photos of his hunting
success in Russia. Another day, we
will visit more.
Tony Harty stopped by our place
Monday afternoon and gave me his
news. He had a pretty quiet week.
Sandee Gittings, Jessica Gittings
and Daniel were in Rapid City
Tuesday to keep an eye appoint-
ment for Sandee. Daniel went
home with Sandee to check heifers
while George was at the sale. Jes-
sica came out in the evening for
supper for George's birthday and
took Daniel home with her.
Tuesday afternoon, Phyllis Word
was a visitor at our place. Still in
pain so made an appointment in
Philip for Wednesday.
Don and Vi Moody spent some
quality time at the ranch this past
week doing yard cleanup and work-
ing on getting tractors repaired
and vehicles into Philip for body
work, etc. They drove back into
Rapid Thursday afternoon as Vi
had an appointment and they got
their Easter decorations out and
received lots of chocolate rabbits
and colored eggs.
Bill and I enjoyed visiting with
Dan Piroutek and Beau Bendigo
who were out for breakfast in
Kadoka at the same time we were
Wednesday. Thanks for breakfast
Dan. They were headed to
Rushville, Neb. My afternoon doc-
tor’s appointment in Philip yielded
nothing, except some pain pills
came my way. Bill and I had sup-
per at the bowling alley and en-
joyed visiting with the gals who
bowl in the evening.
Wednesday found Tony Harty at
the courthouse the better part of
the day. He had a late dinner out.
The West Central Electric April

Philip High School Fine Arts
Adults: $5.00 • Students grades 1-12: $3.00
by Del Bartels
Former Philip High School bas-
ketball player Kelly Pfeifer is living
his dream. He is a Division 1 col-
lege basketball referee.
Tuesday, April 2, Pfeifer was one
of three professional referees work-
ing the CollegeInsider.com postsea-
son tournament championship bas-
ketball game between Eastern Car-
olina University and Weber State,
played in Ogden, Utah, and tele-
vised on CBS Sports Network.
“I first got interested in reffing
watching my brother-in-law, David
Burnett, work the 1997 Class A
Boys Basketball Tournament in
Rapid City. He reffed and I went
along. I was still in high school, but
that’s when I was truly introduced
to reffing,” said Pfeifer. “I got
started reffing helping out with
team camps in the summers to
earn some extra money while I was
in college. A local high school bas-
ketball coach named Bill Mar-
quardt needed help with his team
camps and that’s how I started reff-
ing. I have helped ref at these team
camps every summer since then.”
As a 1998 PHS graduate and all-
conference basketball player,
Pfeifer played college ball at
Dakota Wesleyan, Mitchell, for
four years. This was while he was
earning double bachelor degrees in
business finance and elementary
“There’s thousands of guys who
want to play college ball; there’s
very few who get to,” said Burnett.
“The aspirations he has are big and
you have to have those. You have
to have a lot ‘want to.’ ”
“Then, when I was graduating
college, my college basketball
coach, Doug Martin, told Colin
Kapitan that I would make a good
referee,” said Pfeifer. “Colin was a
longtime referee and assigner for
high school and college basketball
games. If not for Colin, I would not
be where I am today.”
“I have been working NCAA Di-
vision 1 college basketball for three
years now and it’s going very well,”
stated Pfeifer. “The Division 1
Leagues I currently work in are
Summit, Southland, MAC, Big Sky
and Big 10. I want to keep moving
up and working more games in
these leagues. Next season I hope
to maybe add another league, while
growing the schedule and working
more post season assignments. You
move up by getting plays right and
taking care of business.”
“The pressure, the noise, you’re
talking about a big-time program,”
said Burnett. “The thing about
Kelly, whatever he does, he wants
to do well and he works hard to do
it.” Burnett added, “The impor-
tance of the game is magnified in
college basketball as opposed to
high school.” Not only can the
crowds top 15,000, Burnett ex-
plained, but that with a number of
losses in high school the coach will
still be a teacher, but in college ball
a number of losses will cost the
coach his job.
“You need to
have thick skin
and be able to
take criticism,” said Pfeifer about
being a Division 1 referee. “If you
don’t like pressure of being yelled
at, reffing is probably not for you.
Learn to communicate with
coaches, players and administra-
tors and this will be much easier.”
Pfeifer’s occupation is a director
of banking for Vantage Point Solu-
tions, Mitchell. The job gives him
the flexibility to work in multiple
leagues this season, and doing so in
16 different states. He has been as
far west as California and as far
east as New York and then every-
where in between.
“My wife, Ashley, is very sup-
portive of me reffing. I think all the
travel and the airplanes makes her
and Mom nervous at times, espe-
cially when there is bad weather,”
said Pfeifer. He has reffed every
weekend from the first week in No-
vember until this past weekend. He
reffed 78 college games total this
season, with 40 of them being
NCAA Division 1 games.

The State AAU Wrestling Tour-
nament was held Saturday and
Sunday, March 23-24, in Brook-
In the district tournament,
March 2, in Wall, the Philip area
team had 34 athletes competing. Of
those, 30 earned places and were
eligible to compete in regions
March 9 in Rapid City.
At state, the Philip team started
off with 21 wrestlers. Saturday saw
some elimination, as well as some
victories. On Sunday morning,
Philip still had 10 of its team mem-
bers in the placing rounds.
According to Nicole Dennis,
many attendees believed this year’s
tournament might have been one of
the biggest that South Dakota
State AAU Wrestling has had in a
long time. There was approxi-
mately 1,270 wrestlers who started
on Saturday. It was also stated
that there was a total of 1,985
matches wrestled that day.
Dennis reported that the Philip
area boys had a great season, with
five local wrestlers placing in the
top six in their age and weight di-
visions at the state tournament.

In “27 Goldfish,” the false rumor that one member of a
“Hamlet” acting troupe, played by Keegan Burnett, is not
nice to his girlfriend, is cause for a firmer neck measurement

Too nice for his own good, the character played by Sam Stan-
gle is more than just brow-beaten by his wife, played by Jane
Poss. A confidence-building moustache can change that.
Disjointed, pushed for rehearsal time, rumor-torn and so avant garde that they are downright weird, the acting troupe still
comes together to pass along and hide behind their backs the bagged “37 Goldfish” from the power mad PETA inspector.

Jeff O’Connell has been given
lots of Scottie support as he travels
to different places for his college
track meets. Other Philip gradu-
ates come out and support him. He
traveled to Minneapolis, Minn., in
January for the Jack Johnson Invi-
tational in Minneapolis, Minn., and
Jordan Smith (son of Ray and
Donna) came out to support him.
Whenever University of South
Dakota hosts a meet at the Dako-
taDome, Tara Ravellette (daughter
of Don and Tami) is a loyal fan
showing up to cheer O’Connell on.
According to his mother, Teresa,
even though some of his following
fans did not graduate with him,
they are still very supportive be-
cause they are proud to be Scotties.
Jeff wants to keep the Scottie Pride
going. Taylor and Tara graduated
in 2009, Jordan Smith graduated
in 2008. Jordan (Peterson) Smith
attended school in Philip.
O’Connell’s high school track
coach, Tom Parquet, also traveled
to Vermillion one weekend to sur-
prise O’Connell and support him at
one of his meets. Friendships and
the Scottie pride continues on even
after high school graduation.

Research indicates that the abil-
ity of colostrum to provide passive
immunity to the calf is often lim-
ited by low concentration of
colostral immunoglobulins, insuffi-
cient methods of feeding colostrum,
and limited absorption of im-
munoglobulins in the calf, said
Janna Kincheloe, SDSU Extension
research associate.
“Good quality colostrum should
contain more than 50 grams per
liter of IgG, which is the primary
immunoglobulin in colostrum,”
Kincheloe said. “Quality may be in-
adequate if dams are young, nutri-
tionally stressed, have a poor im-
mune status, or produce large vol-
umes of lower quality milk."
Colostrum-deprived calves are
50 to 75 times more likely to die
within the first three weeks of life,
most of them in the first week.
Kincheloe said producers can con-
firm the level of IgG found in
colostrum by testing it for antibody
content. She added that it is impor-
tant to know the quality of
colostrum being produced by the
cow to be able to determine which
type of product – supplement or re-
placer – is recommended for a
given situation.
Although commercially available
colostrum supplements or replac-
ers can play an important role in
calf health. Kincheloe said for best
results, producers need to under-
stand the differences in these prod-
ucts based on their formulations
and how to use them for optimum
“Failure of passive transfer
(FPT) can be determined by a test
evaluating plasma IgG concentra-
tion within 24 to 48 hours after
birth,” Kincheloe said.
She explained that the critical
level used to indicate FPT in calves
is less than 10 grams per liter.
Products are classified by their
ability to raise plasma IgG concen-
trations. Colostrum supplements
do not raise the plasma concentra-
tion above the species standard of
10 grams per liter, while replace-
ment products do.
The USDA Center for Veterinary
Biologics regulates colostrum prod-
ucts containing IgG. In general,
products that contain less than 100
grams IgG/dose are categorized as
colostrum supplements, and are
designed to be used when feeding
low or medium quality colostrum.
Kincheloe said replacer products
can be used to completely replace
colostrum, as they contain greater
than 100 grams IgG/dose and also
supply additional nutrients re-
quired by the calf (carbohydrates,
protein, fat, vitamins and miner-
als). Research results indicate that
calves fed replacer products per-
form similarly to those fed mater-
nal colostrum in terms of IgG lev-
els, health, and growth rates.
“However, the quantity of IgG
provided by each product does not
accurately predict how much is ac-
tually available to the calf,” Kinch-
eloe said.
Kincheloe explained that the
amount of IgG that can be meas-
ured in the plasma 24 hours after
birth is known as the apparent ef-
ficiency of absorption (AEA).
Research data suggests that ab-
sorption efficiencies typically range
from 20 to 35 percent in maternal
colostrum and many supplements.
Most veterinarians recommend
that calves receive 100 grams of
IgG within the first 24 hours of
birth; however, efficiency of absorp-
tion must be considered when de-
termining type and amount of sup-
plement to be provided. Consider-
ing average AEAs of most products,
the actual amount of IgG consumed
should be between 103 and 180
grams in order to reach the critical
plasma level of 10 grams per liter.
“Factors that can affect AEA
may include source of IgG, method
of processing, amount and type of
protein, and presence of fat and
lactose. Some research has shown
that the addition of some colostrum
supplements may actually reduce
IgG absorption from natural
colostrum," Kincheloe said.
In general, Kincheloe said the
three sources of IgG in colostrum
products are derived by lacteal se-
cretions, like milk, whey, or
colostrum; bovine serum extracts
or chicken eggs.
“Feeding a greater amount of a
product containing low concentra-
tions of IgG can actually result in
decreases in absorption efficiency,
so it is best just to feed a higher
quality product initially,” Kinche-
loe said.
“Be sure to carefully read and
follow the manufacturer's instruc-
tions since products may vary in
how they are mixed and the num-
ber of recommended feedings,”
Kincheloe said.

family here, guiding folks through
a stressful time in a very profes-
sional way.
Donnie and Deloris Poss visited
George and Sandee Gittings Thurs-
day evening.
Thursday, Tony Harty picked up
mail for the Hairs and himself, had
coffee out, attended church and
had supper out.
Don and Vi Moody got a couple of
their vehicles serviced and checked
out a few vacation destinations
while in Rapid as well as spending
a little more time on Facebook as
Vi said they decided to close their
family website they had shared
since 2001. It seems that Facebook
is more popular and "no fee" for
that service, so everyone is posting
their activities on that and playing
interactive games, etc. They en-
joyed a nice drive Easter Sunday
afternoon meeting friends at a mu-
tual place in Deadwood for a nice
visit and a bountiful Easter buffet.
They enjoyed visiting with Nancy
Gaylord from Branford, Conn.,
while returning back to their home
in Rapid Valley Sunday night.
(Aren’t cell phones nice?)
“Beef Daily” had an interesting
article this past week concerning
the high price of land. “Land - God
isn’t making any more of it. And,
with other investment opportuni-
ties lacking, farmers, ranchers, and
plenty of people outside of agricul-
ture, continue to eagerly invest in
this precious asset. The result has
been extremely high and growing
land prices. Could we be headed for
a crash?”
Many fear a return of the 1980s
crash, but, according to the Sioux
Falls Argus Leader, farmers are
better prepared to weather a finan-
cial crash this time around.
Les and Muree Struble surprised
Bill and me with the cutest singing
bunny for Easter Thursday morn-
ing. Les made the delivery and vis-
ited a little bit. He’d injured his
hand so was not going to be able to
bowl and Bill thinks he can fill in
for two weeks on Tuesday. Bill
came home from the card room
with a gift from Don and Virginia
Ferguson. Fergusons gifted the
Civil Air Patrol a “hood” used for
practicing instrument flight rules,
or IFR, and also a headset. They
will be put to good use and thank-
ful to get them. I used “foggles”
when practicing for IFR with an in-
structor, so the hood is a new con-
cept for me.
Vi Moody received word that
Linda (Long) Kramer was going
through some health issues and get
well wishes are sent her way and
prayers for a speedy recovery dur-
ing her recent illness. Our prayers
are with Linda and her family.
Friday afternoon, Tony Harty
visited his niece, Kathy Brown.
He also called to check in on his sis-
ter, Theresa Hockenbary, in Valen-
tine, Neb., who is battling cancer.
Thursday and Friday with tem-
peratures hovering about 70˚ in the
Sturgis area, Ralph and Cathy
Fiedler found excuses to be outside
doing yard work and cleaned their
Bill and I had good intentions of
flying the coup the first of the
week, but I sort of threw a monkey
wrench in that, so we threw things
in the motorhome for a two-day get
away. Friday, we headed toward
the Missouri River. It was too
windy to fish and the campground
at the dam is closed until May, so
we did find a place to park then Bill
got a sore throat, which sent us
scurrying for home Saturday morn-
ing. We need to practice this stay-
ing away more than a day at a
time! Bill did feel good enough to go
to cards in Philip in the afternoon.
Sunday, Ralph and Cathy
Fiedler went to the Eric Hanson
home for Easter supper. The Don
Klumb family joined in. After the
grandkids opened Easter gifts, they
all enjoyed strawberry cake before
going home.
Jessica Gittings and Daniel had
dinner with George and Sandee
Gittings Easter Sunday. Kurt
Gustafson, Lindstrom, Minn., ar-
rived at the Gittings home Sunday
evening. He will be working on the
railroad in Philip for a while.
Easter Sunday, Tony Harty vis-
ited with L.D. and Shirley Hair and
took them their mail while they
were in Kadoka. They returned to
their camper at Oelrichs in the af-
ternoon. He went out for dinner.
Bill and I rested most of Easter
Sunday. Jeanette Burnette visited
at our place after she enjoyed
Easter dinner at the Chris Riggin’s
home, which is right across from
our house. Thanks for the visit,

Fayth Martin, in honor of Grand-
parent's Day. Thursday, Coreen at-
tended the Easter party at Deep
Creek School. Easter guests at Ju-
lian and Coreen's home were Adam
and Jodi Roseth and children, and
Nick Roseth.
It has been a quieter week at the
Halligan home. Frank Halligan
went to Pierre on Easter and took
his father, Ken, out for Easter din-
Helen Beckwith traveled to Au-
rora, Palm Sunday to join her sib-
lings for the day. Helen's father re-
cently passed away, so the group
also took care of some thank you
notes and other business. On the
way back home, Helen stopped in
Huron and picked up their daugh-
ter, Lori, and brought her home for
the Easter holiday. Ron and
Helen's daughters, Rose and
Cheryl, and their families also
spent part of the weekend with
them. Some of them helped with
the tree planting project Friday.
Marc and Cheryl and family re-
turned to their home in Ft. Pierre
Saturday evening. Gary and Ann
Beckwith joined the group for
Easter dinner, and neighbor Ben
and his girlfriend joined the group
Clark and Carmen Alleman were
on hand for the Sederfest meal at
Lutheran Memorial Wednesday
evening, as well as granddaughter
Morgan's first communion Thurs-
day. Friday, they were in Pierre for
an appointment. Kelly (Alleman)
Nelson and her daughter, Morgan,
came to the ranch Friday evening
for the Easter holiday. Grand-
daughter Alivya, daughter of Clint
and Laura, also joined the group
Friday night. Clark and Carmen's
family were joined by Elliot and
Mary Jane Nelson, and they all en-
joyed a family Easter supper Sat-
urday evening. Sunday, they at-
tended sunrise services at Deep
Creek Church, followed by break-
fast. In the afternoon, Carmen,
Kelly and Morgan went to Midland
to join a Foshiem family Easter
Bill and Polly Bruce were in
Pierre last Tuesday for their an-
nual checkups – sounds like they
got good results. Thursday, their
daughter, Linda, and husband Bob
Lutter and children, Jessie and
Joey, arrived from their home in
Ashton for a visit. Linda helped
Polly tie a quilt while she was
home – it is nice to have help for
that job. Linda and family returned
home Saturday. Saturday evening,
Andy Bruce and children, Jackson
and Allison, came to the ranch for
Easter. Saturday evening, Bill and
Polly Bruce attended church in
Eagle Butte, and they visited with
their daughter, Marcia Simon, be-
fore returning to the ranch. Easter
dinner guests were Andy Bruce
and children and Vince and Katie
Ruth Neuhauser thoroughly en-
joyed the Easter dinner provided
by Kevin and Mary, and she en-
joyed the opportunity to visit with
Mary's parents, the Schlecters.
Ruth said it snowed lightly most of
the day in Highmore, but it wasn't
heavy snow.
Marge Briggs enjoyed Easter
with her family in Spearfish. She
said they encountered some snow
showers on the way home. Marge
said she is being careful to measure
every bit of moisture for the
weather data – every drop helps!
I was in Pierre last Thursday to
run errands and gather up sup-
plies. I also had the opportunity to
have lunch with my sister-in-law,
Janice Neuhauser, which was a
treat! Easter at our place was
quiet – Chauncey Jorgensen and
his friend, Misty Gunderson, joined
us for Easter dinner. The rest of
the day was spent checking cattle.
Today, I am grateful to live in a
country where we are free to wor-
ship as we please. As I read back
over this column, it was evident
how big of a role faith plays in our
lives. Thank goodness for the folks
who have fought (and continue to
fight) for our freedoms, one of
which is religious freedom.
This week, I hope all of you will
have the opportunity to enjoy the
many signs of spring! It is so uplift-
ing to see the new blades of grass
and the baby calves and all the
other "springy" things! And please
continue to pray for moisture. I
heard there were some prairie fires
south of Kadoka, so please be care-
ful. Now, go out and make it a
great week!
Moenville News
(continued from page 6)
by Representative
Kristi Noem
With opening day of baseball
season in our sights, spring has fi-
nally arrived. Families across
South Dakota are preparing for
outdoor track meets and open-
water fishing, but before we can get
outside and enjoy the long-awaited
warmer temperatures, there’s an-
other annual “holiday” we need to
get past first – tax day.
We’re only a couple weeks away
from the April 15 deadline to file
taxes for 2012. According to the
non-partisan Tax Foundation, indi-
viduals and businesses spend
about 6.1 billion hours each year
doing their taxes and complying
with complicated tax laws.
Now, some in Washington, D.C.
are proposing that we raise taxes
even more on hard-working Amer-
icans to help manage our deficit. In
fact, the budget that was finally
passed by the Senate proposes al-
most $1 trillion in additional taxes.
I believe that we don’t have deficits
because Americans are taxed too
little; we have deficits because
Washington spends too much.
In contrast, the budget that was
passed by the House of Represen-
tatives will balance the federal
budget in 10 years and reduces the
deficit by $4.6 trillion. This budget
is a crucial step to putting our na-
tion back on a sustainable fiscal
path. Our budget brings spending
down to a reasonable level so that
we do not have to raise taxes on
American families and job creators.
Not only does the House budget
lower tax rates for individuals,
businesses and families through
pro-growth tax reform and closing
loopholes, it also gives the green
light to the Keystone XL Pipeline
project and fully repeals Oba-
The Senate budget will never
balance and that’s unacceptable to
me. South Dakota families and
businesses balance their budgets
every year and we know that it’s
unsustainable to spend more than
we take in. It’s time for the federal
government to do the same. While
the House has passed a budget
every year since I took office, this
was the first time in four years that
the Senate considered and passed
a budget. I applaud the Senate for
doing its job, but raising taxes and
continued deficit spending are non-
starters for me.
While President Obama was able
to complete his NCAA bracket in
time, he once again failed to meet
his own budget deadline. A budget
serves as a blueprint for our na-
tion’s priorities and I’m disap-
pointed that the president fails to
take this seriously.
I am optimistic that House and
Senate leaders will work out the
differences between the two budg-
ets so that we can pass a budget
that’s acceptable to both chambers.
During these negotiations, I’d like
to hear from you and to get your
thoughts about the federal budget
process. Email me through my
website, http://noem.house.gov,
send me a tweet (@RepKristiNoem)
with your opinions and ideas or

Weather has been up and down,
chilly some days with wind and
other days warmer and sunshine.
Not much for moisture, still aw-
fully dry in this area and don’t see
anything growing unless in a draw
where a few drifts melted. The cat-

what they can find as soon as it ap-
Did not find many at home for
news this week some I called were
out checking for new calves and
busy with them as seems it’s what
everyone in this area are busy with
these days.
Marvin and Vicki keep busy with
new baby calves arriving every day
they catch each one ear tag and
vaccinate each one when they are a
day or so old. They are always busy
every day feeding and doing this
till noon or later on some days.
Jean Radway was a busy lady
over Easter. She took on Easter for
the family get-together. To have a
big enough place she heated her
garage and used that. She enter-
tained 20 or more. A few of her
friends, Tom and Marie Radway,
Alex Radway and family, and Seth
and Mindy Green and family.
Cain Radway and family, and
Marcy Morrison and family went to
their in-laws for the day. Tom said
that they had corn beef and cab-
bage at Jean’s plus other great
dishes. They all enjoyed a great day
together visiting and playing cards.
Eileen Fitzgerald enjoyed Easter
at Dean and Janice Fitzgerald’s
and enjoyed seeing Beth, who was
home from Omaha, Neb. Janice’s
dad, Bob Holcomb, who had dinner
at the nursing home with his wife,
Wanda, Cindy and family, Rapid
City, Rusty and Amanda Bear, and
Abbie and her fiancé, Scott, Rapid
David Fitzgerald accompanied
Cassidy and family to Rapid City to
the Danni Carlson’s for Easter.
Every family seems to manage

sides of their families and getting
to see each other by changing off
and on holidays different years and
different holidays. So everyone gets

their day to be together and they
seem to all take turns serving the
meals, although a lot of kids want
to just come home. But it is nice for
parents to get to go visit their kids
also. But most of the farm families
are calving and are not able to be
gone, as Easter usually falls during
calving season, so their kids have to
come home to be with them.
Larry Lewison called me from
Hurley, S.D., to tell me that Becky
(Poss) Wiebelhause has now devel-
oped cancer of the liver. She has
had many health problems this
past year. I am sure she and her
husband, Todd, would appreciate
your prayers. Larry also said that
his eyes are still bad and that he is
unable to see very well, but has
hopes the VA in Sioux Falls will be
able to help him. Otherwise they
are doing well.
Herb and Hazel Sieler were
Easter guests at Dennis and Kay,
Mike and Todd Sieler’s for Easter.
They also visited with all their kids
by phone Easter Day.
Dan Oldenberg enjoyed Easter at
Bob and Kathy Hamanns at Wall,
as did Henry and Nellie Chapell.
Esther was not able to go as she
had to work. Esther and Dan en-
joyed supper at Quinn this week for
a belated 60th birthday for Dan.
Henry and Nellie Chapell, and Bob
and Kathy Hamann were also
there. They all enjoyed a good time.
Keith and Debbie Smith were
busy as usual over Easter. Cassidy
Ayotte and the girls were home
Thursday through Monday, April
1. Ella, Lincoln’s fiancée, spent
Easter weekend with them. Colby
was also home from college Thurs-
day. Colby and Deb went with Jess
to watch Logan and Myer find eggs
at the Kiddie Park in Philip.
Thursday night, they attended the
living supper at the United
Church. Friday night, Colby and
Cassidy colored eggs for Easter.
Saturday night, they, plus Tucker,
Jess and boys all went to supper at
Don and Donna Olivier’s where
they joined several of Debbie’s sib-
lings for the evening. Then Easter
Sunday, Keith and Deb had her
folks, sister Sonja and family, and
Rich Smith for the day. Deb kept
Logan Friday as Jess took Myer up
for his two-month checkup in
Rapid City. I haven’t gotten to see
him yet, as I had a cold and didn’t
want to spread it around.
Donna Newman, Glenn and Di-
anne Parsons and Shayla and boys
went to A.J. and Chelsee Taylor’s
for Easter. They also celebrated
Eliza’s first birthday while there.
So it was a busy weekend for every-
At Marvin and Vicki Eide’s for
Easter were Bart Ramsey and his
mother, Rita Ramsey, Trevor and
Christa Fitch and six boys, and
Mary Eide. Marcy Ramsey was not
able to be there as she and her dad
and brother, Rusty, are in
Rochester, Minn., with her mother,
Vi, who is undergoing heart sur-
Our sympathy goes out to the
family of Esther Long this week.
Esther was a long-time resident of
Philip and will be missed by family
and friends.
I hope everyone had a happy
Easter enjoying family and remem-
bering what Easter is all about. The
reason we celebrate is that no one
can give us the gift we received on
that day long ago, but He who gave

large two-story structure filled
with household necessities. A large

The Grand Army Post was first
organized on April 6, 1865, at De-

and the twenty-first anniversary of
the entrance of our country into the
World War.
