For the third time in the last
four Memorial Day holidays,
South Dakota has ended the offi-
cial reporting period without a
highway fatality.
Late reports from the past
weekend could change this years
outcome, but as of mid-afternoon
on Tuesday, May 28, the Office of
Highway Safety had received no
reports of fatal crashes on state
roads during the holiday report-
ing period.
Thats a great way to start the
busy summer travel season, said
Col. Craig Price, superintendent
of the South Dakota Highway Pa-
trol. The Highway Patrol had all
available troopers out for a high-
visibility saturation patrol on Me-
morial Day, and we used the
holiday weekend to kick off a
summer-long safety campaign we
call Obey the Sign and Avoid the
The campaign is an initiative
to reduce highway crashes and in-
crease safety on South Dakotas
roadways. Statistics show that
speeding, impaired driving and
other hazardous moving viola-
tions are major contributors in
crashes, injuries and deaths on
the highways. The summer-long
campaign will target speed and
alcohol in particular for enforce-
ment efforts.
In addition to enforcement, the
summer safety campaign will use
social media for public education
and will partner with the State
Department of Transportation for
permanent and portable message
boards with safe-driving mes-
sages on the interstates and other
high-traffic areas in South

riod was fatality-free in 2010 and

Do you know the two simple
steps of Hands-Only CPR?
Then youre ready to help save a
life. In recognition of National
CPR Awareness Week (June 3rd
June 8th), the American Heart
Association is continuing the na-
tional awareness campaign and
ongoing mobile tour teaching
Americans how to perform
Hands-Only CPR to the beat of
the Bee Gees hit Stayin Alive.
Sudden cardiac arrest is a
leading cause of death with
nearly 360,000 out-of-hospital
cases occurring every year in the
United States. When a teen or
adult has a sudden cardiac arrest,
survival depends on immediately
receiving CPR from someone
nearby, especially since survival
rates drop as much as 10% for
every minute that goes by with-
out intervention. The Bees Gees
hit song "Stayin Alive" has more
than 100 beats per minute, which
is the rate you should push on the
chest during Hands-Only CPR.
The iconic songs beat is an
easy and fun way for people to re-
member the correct rhythm for
CPR chest compressions, and
make them feel more confident
doing it, said Chrissy Meyer, Di-
rector of Corporate & Media Rela-
tions for the American Heart
Association. If you begin Hands-
Only CPR to the beat of the Bee
Gees Stayin Alive immediately
on a teen or adult who collapses
from sudden cardiac arrest, you

NEWARK, DE My mom,
Janet Elaine (Griffith, Bachman)
Vermilyea, 73 years young, was
the strongest and most amazing
woman I have ever known. She
fought a long hard battle with an
autoimmune disease called vas-
culitis that took her vision, many
of her toes, her short term mem-
ory, and eventually her strength,
but it never took her ability to be
positive and kind to everyone
around her. Even in the final
days, she never failed to give
words of kindness to all those
around her and her sharp wit
never failed her.
Jan was the daughter of Rose
and Alvin Griffith; she grew up in
Dupree, SD. After getting her cos-
metology license, she married
Ronald Bachman and opened her
own salon in Faith, SD, where her
only child, Ronet, was born in
1962. She married Bill Vermilyea
in 1975 and moved to Minneapo-
lis, MN. In 1985, they both moved
back to Rapid City, SD, to open
several Cost Cutter salons, which
she ran with a passion.
Jan loved to play the guitar,
loved to listen to all kinds of
music, and loved nothing more
than to hike in the Black Hills.
She enjoyed anything chocolate,
those nasty orange circus peanuts
that reminded her of her child-
hood, and a good margarita on the
rocks. She had her first stroke
caused by her disease on Sept. 12,
2001. This first stroke began the
long winding road to the end.
When Bill suddenly died in 2005,
she moved to Delaware where I
could care for her. None of us, in-
cluding her doctors, thought the
road would be long, but she
fought hard. To all of our aston-
ishment, she rallied several med-
ical setbacks including two more
strokes, toe amputations, virtual
blindness, and constant pain. Re-
cently, the infections could not be
abated and she said enough is
enough. Her fight ended on May
26, 2013, when she died in my
She is survived by me, Ronet
Bachman, my husband, who
loved her like his own mother,
Ray Paternoster, and our son,
John Bachman-Paternoster. She
is also survived by several sib-
lings, who she loved very much,
Carl Griffith, Mercedes (Mert)
Pritzkau, Dorothy Tibbs, Elva R.
Till, Maude Flahaven, Thomas
Griffith, Leona (Gay) Ruzicka,
Rollis Griffith, and Bills children,
Jan Kilpatrick, Pat and Sue,
Steve, and Gina Vermilyea.
A Celebration of Mom's life will
be from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Friday,
July 5, at the Ramkota Inn in
Rapid City.
If you knew her and loved her
like I do, please live every day like
it is your last in her honor, and
leave the world around you a bet-
ter place by being kind to every-
one. Memorial gifts can be given
to the Childrens Home Society of
South Dakota. I would also wel-
come any stories you have of my
mother. They may be sent to me
at 20 Longwood Lane, Newark,

The Prairie Home Church, at
Maurine, SD, would like to an-
nounce a ground breaking cere-
mony for a new church building
which took place on Sunday, May
26, 2013.
The church body voted to build
a new facility for the purpose of
sharing the word of God and hav-
ing a building able to meet the
needs of the growing church body.
A building committee was se-
lected and has been planning and
working diligently to have
reached this day. This decision
set us on a unique journey filled
with milestones, struggles and
triumphs. The ground breaking
celebration was one of those tri-
umphs. We look forward to cele-
brating the construction of the
new church building, but even
more importantly, we celebrate
the growth of the church body.
After all, a church is not a build-
ing but rather the people who fel-
lowship within. With the success
of the building fund campaign, we
continue to move forward to build
on the foundation of Gods word
and we pray and have faith that
the remaining funds will come.
The 5000 square foot-facility
was planned by the building com-
mittee and will accommodate the
needs of the growing community.
All ages will benefit from the new
construction that will facilitate
Sunday worship, celebrations, va-
cation Bible school, meetings,
community events and much
more. Construction of the project
is scheduled to begin in June.
The building committee has
come a long way in the last year
but our journey is far from fin-
ished. This ground breaking was
just the beginning of the next
stage. So please join us as we cel-
ebrate the future of the building
project and we seek Gods wisdom
to do his will!
On Christ we build!! Submitted by Roxie Haines

Doing our part to prevent wildland
Living in South Dakota, we
know that the elements of nature
can be our greatest friend and
also our gravest enemy. On farms
and ranches across the state it is
not uncommon to see controlled
burns in pastures. In these sum-
mer months, many of us enjoy
roasting marshmallows and hot-
dogs over an open campfire, and
lighting fireworks around the
Fourth of July. Yet it takes just a
small increase in the wind from
the wrong direction, an extra-dry
season, or careless eye on the
campfire for small fires to spread
quickly out-of-control.
On the western side of the
state we have become especially
concerned about fire season with
the spread of the pine beetle epi-
demic in the Black Hills. Trees in-
fested by pine beetles are
especially susceptible to fires,
which can move quickly putting
life and property in danger. Ear-
lier this year, in an effort to help
combat forest fires, I sent a letter
to Chief of the U.S. Forest Serv-
ice, Tom Tidwell, encouraging the
agency to consider the use of the
Air Forces soon-to-be retired C-
27J aircraft to fight wildland fires
in the Rocky Mountain Region.
Not only would the aircraft help
provide the Forest Service with
the tools needed to fight wildland
fires, but the operation of these
aircraft could also provide multi-
ple benefits to our economy if sta-
tioned at Ellsworth Air Force
Base. I have also introduced leg-
islation to cut red tape and prior-
itize pine beetle treatments
within the U.S. Forest Service.
Equipping the brave men and
women who fight our wildland
fires with the best possible tools
is just one important part of fire
safety and prevention. Each of us
must do our part to ensure that
we help preserve and protect
some of our countrys greatest na-
tional treasures and the lives and
personal property of our neigh-

cause I like being in the country
looking after livestock much bet-

With one thought in mind, I
went into Mr. Nelsons office, who
was superintendent at the time,
to get my dollar back.
Mr. Nelson talked to me for
about fifteen minutes trying to
persuade me not to quit school so
I didnt have a chance to ask for
my dollar.

and most pleased to receive a

had wanted to get eighty-four
years ago.

All Members Welcome.
Sunday proved to be a very
nice day for a 20th anniversary
celebration for Wes and Sue
Labrier. Twenty years ago in
April, the Wes Labrier family ar-
rived in Union Center to pastor
the Community Baptist Church of
Union Center and White Owl
Church. About 150 guests were
in attendance on Sunday after-
noon to share stories and
thoughts of Wes and Sue Labrier.
Donna Cammack shared a poem
she had written years ago when
they arrived. Sandy Rhoden and
Melanie Cammack presented a
slide show that dated back to
1993 to present. A western bench
was presented to them from the
church family and refreshments
were served afterward. We have
been blessed for 20 years with a
preacher who can work cattle, do
cesareans on animals, do carpen-
try, break horses, and anything a
rancher can do.
Another blessing since the last
Central Meade County News is
the moisture we now have in the
ground that we were so needing.
Several areas of Meade County
received multiple inches of rain
over the course of a short time,
while others received a fair abun-
dance of rain over several days.
The power of prayer is difficult to
doubt after this last week.
Randy and Susie Keffeler, Joy
Smiley, Sandy Rhoden, Francie
Brink, Jone and Travis Enright,
Rick Smiley, and many others
were in Sioux Falls on May 24-25
for the State Track Meet. Caden
Smiley finished 7th in the high
jump over all. He cleared 5'10" for
that place, however his personal
best for the year was 6' 3". Caden
also participated in two relays
with Chaney Keffeler. Reggie
Rhoden ran the 100m high hur-
dles and high jump. Paige Brink
long jumped and Brooke, Bailly,
and Brandi Enright all ran in a
4x100m relay together. Brandi
Enright also high jumped while
Bailly Enright ran the 100m hur-
dles. The weather was fairly co-
operative, however a 30 minute
break was taken on Friday for
lightning and some rain.
Vacation Bible School at the
Community Baptist Church of
Union Center will take place the
week of June 17. The topic for the
week is "Jesus Is Coming Again".
They typically have their VBS
during the Sturgis Bike Rally but

June 10th from 1:00 - 5:30 pm at
the Community Baptist Church
basement. Contact Donna Cam-
mack or Carolyn Moreland if you

Marcus News
By Vicky Waterland
The past couple weeks have
seen the loss of several Faith
ladies, Carol Johnson, Tish
Gustafaon, and Jan Griffith
Bachman?. (Don't know her mar-
ried name, sorry.)Each of these
women were a special part of
Faith at one time in their lives.
They maintained households,
held jobs and raised their chil-
dren. By doing those things each
made a contribution to our com-
munity and to our way of life.
Hopefully they all knew how
much they were appreciated.
Sympathy is extended to each
and every family member. I was
probably more familiar with
Carol Johnson as she was the
Faith elementary school principal
when I was hired to teach second
grade. I took the position previ-
ously filled by Connie Miller. Her
husband, the music director, had
been here several years but had
been hired in Newell. I was the
first teacher Mr. Fernau and Mrs.
Johnson interviewed for the ele-
mentary school. It was Mr. Fer-
naus first year there. I had gone
there almost shaking with nerves
at the thought of what kind of in-
terview questions they might ask.
They asked the basic things,
where had I worked, what had I
taught, etc. Things got quiet and
Mr. Fernau said something about
Mrs. Johnson asking questions.
She looked at him and said,Mr.
Whatever used to ask all the
questions, I dont have any. Nei-
ther did he! I got the job and Im
sure they did things differently
after that. She was a great lady
who understood the special prob-
lems encountered by a mom who
taught school and had kids, drove
to work in all kinds of weather
and was responsible for working
outside with country chores.
When you called in sick she al-
ways said, Now take care of you
and get well. She, too, drove a
four wheel drive with mud balls
on the roof and a log chain and
snowshovel in the back. I appre-
ciated her knowledge, her men-
toring and her caring! She was
indeed a great lady. Education
could use more like her!
There was a good crowd at the
wedding shower for Emily Wicks
and Thane Escott held at the
Marcus Hall last Friday night.
Word has it that the place was
beautifully decorated and the pot-
luck had its usual array of great
country food.
Friday, Jim and Vonnie O'Dea
were in Philip attending funeral
services for Jimmie Dean. Jimmie
played the drums with the Philip
Five along with Marie Hansen.
O'Deas had Phyliss and Marvin
Coleman, Hazel and Herb Sieler,
Twila and LeRoy Dean up to their
"townhouse" after the funeral and
before going to a memorial service
for friend Rita Narcisian. Later
they attended the visitation for
Laura Morgan and visited many
Milesville friends. It was a long
day, but they saw many they
After church on Sunday, Jim
and Vonnie O'Dea went to Buffalo
to watch grandson, Michael De-
ichert, at the Regional High
School Rodeo. They have had
grandkids at this rodeo for 10
straight years and this was the
first one O'Deas had attended. It
was a worthwhile trip as Michael
won the average in Calf Roping.
Vacation Bible School will be
held June 17-19 at the Marcus
Presbyterian Church. There will
be a traveling group coming to do
this. They are asking for some
Good Shepard teen helpers to
come assist with the crafts, chil-
dren, etc. Marcus Church mem-
bers also need to provide snacks
for the kids and lunches for the
traveling teachers. All interested
area kids are invited to attend.
Anyone who would like to know
more needs to call Kerry Frei at
Lacey, Quirt, and Rio Won-
dercheck and I kept appoint-
ments in the Hills on Friday.
Saturday, Harold and I drove
to Rapid City to attend grandson,
Daniel Schillings soccer games.
Also attending were Jill Schilling,
Mathew, Timothy, and Emma,
Chet and Kristen Kilmer and Ca-
dence, and George and Kim Lan-
gendorfer. Daniels team tied
their first two games and lost the
last game to Belle Fouche.
Thursday, Lacey Wondercheck
and boys and I were in Faith for
my prescriptions and groceries.
We stopped at Keffeler Kreations
and I bought tomato plants.
When I got home I realized I had
all yellow tomato plants so I
called Dana. Sure, bring em back
sometime and wed trade. I went
back right away arriving at 5:04.
She unlocked the door for me and
graciously traded plants, even
throwing in an extra one, then
helped me load my stuff and shut
my rear cargo door. Friday, I
looked at tomato plants of similar
quality in Rapid City and found
out my Keffeler Kreation plants
were cheaper! Now guys, thats a
testament to shop at home and
support our local merchants.
Thank you, Dana, for the super
I received an email from Kevin
Jensen concerning the Faith Mu-
nicipal Building. Im copying and
pasting it for all to enjoy as I did.
Thanks Kevin.
Hello, In the 1950's and early
60's my grandfather, Ed Nelson,
was the custodian at the Munici-
pal Building. Sometimes he
would take me to work with him.
We would arrive at 4:30, but
sometimes he would cut me a
break and not take me til 6:30
am. I would gaze at the fire
trucks, and visit the jail cells, look
at the Faith telephone equip-
ment, and on a rare occasion he
would give me a cherry from the
bottle behind the bar. I would
"help" him sweep, empty some
garbage and haul bottles up-
stairs. Once in a while we would
go through the library and go out
on the roof and view the city of
Faith. I will never forget the
smell of sweeping compound, to-
bacco and stale air. There was a
gun collection on the upper wall.
Jerry Tarrant had a gun collec-
tion at his barber shop too. One
time Craig Ness and I were with
grandpa and we "accidentally" set
off the siren on one of the fire
trucks. we attracted a pretty good
crowd of chuckling , laughing bar
patrons. Grandpa Nelson wasn't
quite as amused. In the after-
noons the regulars, always men,
would kid me about who I was.
And I would answer I am Ed
Nelson's grandson. I am sure I
was coached a bit to say that.
McCormicks, or Macks as we
called it was right across the
street, next to the old post office.
Patsy McGinnis worked there.
You could get fountain drinks, ice
cream sundaes, candy bars. Once
in a great while my folks would
buy ice cream in a cylinder
shaped cardboard container, and
that was really living. Then it
changed to the Sugar Shack when
Mae Chapman ran the place. I am
amazed that Faith had two soda
fountains. Thompson Drug had a
fountain where the Sippert sis-
ters would wait on you. You could
also order 45 rpm records. I
bought my first Beatles record
there. I spent a fortune on comic
books there too. Great memories
of a great place to grow up. -
Kevin Jensen
Kevins mention of soda foun-
tains reminds me, How tough
would it be to have the Thompson
Drug soda fountain that sits in
the Faith museum work again? I
never got to do it because of my
diabetes but I remember going
there and watching kids order
cherry cokes and graveyards.
Sure looked like fun to me!
I guess I am now retired as my
position at Takini School was
done away with or in teacher talk
RIFed. Consequently daughter,
Lacey, has started me off on the
road to being an online blogger.
Ill be using part of my news for
the site so look me up online at
Im still trying to do news so call
985-5318 or email me atvickywa-
Hopefully, I did not forget any-
one or anything this week.
More rain! Rain continued sev-
eral days last week. We had a lit-
tle rain Thursday, but most of
Friday and Saturday were wet.
We got around a half inch Friday.
I think Im ready for a little sun-
shine for awhile! It can rain again
in a couple weeks. Were going to
have a little of everything this
week, wind, sunshine and a
chance of rain.
Ole and Linda Keehner and
Mike and Billie Hansen spent
Memorial Day weekend here vis-
iting family and friends in the
area. Both gals are from Dupree
so they got in some visiting there
Eldora Fischbach hosted the
ladies of the Prairie Strippers
Quilt Guild last Tuesday. She
held it at St. Josephs Church be-
cause of the muddy roads. They
had a great evening visiting and
sharing their latest projects. El-
dora is entering several of her
quilts in the quilt show at the
Rushmore Plaza Civic Center
that is this weekend.
Condolences to the family of
Carol Johnson. Carol passed
away last week and a small serv-
ice was held Saturday. Carol was
a long-time teacher in our area.
She was Faiths Elementary Prin-
cipal for several years. She was
always such a happy lady and
will be missed.
We also lost another former
Faith citizen, Jan Vermilyea(Grif-
fith, Bachman) last week. Jan ran
a beauty shop here for many
years and later moved to Rapid
City. She lived with her daughter
Ronet in Delaware for the past
several years. It sounds like there
will be a memorial service for her
in Rapid City in July. She was an-
other one of those ladies that was
a joy to be around. Her family will
miss her.
Regional High School Rodeos
are underway. Buffalo had theirs
last weekend, and Dupree has
theirs this weekend. Several of
our FHS Rodeo Club members
did very well at Buffalo but I
couldnt find the official results,
they werent on their website as
of Monday morning. We want to
wish our FHS Rodeo Club mem-
bers the best of luck! The State
HS Rodeo is June 19-23 in Belle
The weather hasnt been ex-
actly the best for swimming yet.
Hopefully it warms up so the kids
can enjoy the pool soon.

Grand River Roundup

Clean those pots!
Every year about this time we
are filling our pots with flowers,
maybe herbs and patio veggies.
When I drag mine out of the gar-
den shed they are often crusted
with some chemical or salt
residue, some crusts can harbor
plant disease.Hitting them with
the hose doesnt do the job. So
how do you get rid of that crusty
Here is what the experts say.
To clean the crust from empty
containers, soak them for at least
30 minutes in a solution of nine
parts lukewarm water to one part
liquid chlorine bleach. Scrub
them with a stiff wire brush, then
rinse well to remove all visible
traces of the minerals. The bleach
cleans and sterilizes the pots.If
they dont come clean after one or
two attempts, discard them.
The crusty build up can come
from naturally occurring miner-
als in the water and from water-
soluble fertilizers. These build-
ups can accumulate in the soil
causing root burn that leaves
roots unable to take up water.
This is the main reason for annu-
ally doing a thorough cleaning of
those containers. Some contain-
ers are more susceptible to these
crusty build-ups than others as
you will notice as you examine
your containers each spring.
Try to prevent these build-ups
by avoiding excessive fertilizer.
Do not use water that has gone
through a water softener or well
water with a high salt content.It
is also recommended not to water
from the bottom as this encour-
ages uptake and deposit of the
mineral salts on the surface and
rim of the container. If you do
water from the bottom, once a
month water heavily form the top
until the water runs freely out the
bottom to help leach out some of
the accumulated mineral salts.
For healthier, happier plants
be sure to scrub out those pots
prior to planting!
Their soul shall be as a wa-
tered garden; and they shall not
sorrow any more at all.~ Jere-

I added up the rain I dumped
out of our gauge for the month of
May and it totaled over five
inches, 5.21 to be exact. There
were flood warnings out for
Wednesday through Saturday for
every creek and river in the
northern Hills and some roads
were washed out. The prairie is so
green youd swear this was Ire-
land if you didnt know better and
were gonna get some hay, even
from some of the hayfields that
suffered hail damage. I finally got
the south 40 mowed and was
strongly considering using the
swather and the baler, if only I
could get them through the yard
There were lots of brandings in
the neighborhood this week. Taz
and Trig went to help brand at
Rone Jensons on Monday while
Casey, Missy and Bryce went to
the high school practice rodeo in
Isabel. The Bar H branded on
Tuesday. Casey, Taz and Trig
helped brand Bill and Tony Holts
calves Wednesday, Claudia and
Taylor Vroman branded toward
the end of the week, and Ron
Slaba branded on Sunday during
the regional high school rodeo in
Buffalo. These guys got the last
bunch of late calves branded this
Monday and now were looking
forward to Dolls branding at the
Hackamore on Tuesday. Ill tell
you all about that next week.
You know winter is over when
I start reporting on horse wrecks
around the community. On
Thursday Richard Pecks horse
slipped in the mud and fell with
him, knocking him cold, and then
in the process of getting back up
the horse stomped right on Dicks
chest breaking seven ribs. He
spent a day or so in the Hettinger
hospital and is slowly healing.
Kelly Brittons horse bucked him
off and buggered him up enough
that he missed working the arena
at the high school rodeo Satur-
day. He helped on Sunday, but he
was walking pretty careful. Gary
McCall also had a horse wreck
that put him in the hospital in the
Hills a week or so ago, but hes
out and about now. Be careful out
Amanda, Kiley and Reave
Schuchard came to A.I. our
heifers Friday in the rain, and
they finished just as Greg and
Stetson Urlacher brought our
bulls. They were all here for lunch
and a good visit.
The IRS scandal keeps getting
worse. If an organization used the
words Tea Party, Christian, Pa-
triot, Conservative, or Constitu-
tion when applying to the IRS for
tax-exempt status they were tar-
geted for audits and investiga-
tions and their applications were
delayed, usually for three years or
were never granted. Even Rev.
Billy Graham was under investi-
gation! Now people have started
to come forward telling how the
Obama administration ordered
them to be audited and investi-
gated, not only by the IRS, but
also by the DOJ, the FBI, the
land Security and numerous
other government departments.
This is scary and infuriating!
Lets hope the long arm of gov-
ernment is just as incompetent
during these unlawful investiga-
tions as this guy:
A cowboy named Bud was rid-
ing through livestock in a remote
pasture in western Dakota when
suddenly a brand-new BMW ad-
vanced toward him in a cloud of
The driver, a young man in a
Brioni suit and Gucci shoes
leaned out the window and asked
the cowboy, "If I tell you exactly
how many cows and calves you
have in your herd, will you give
me a calf?"
Bud looks at the man, who ob-
viously is a yuppie, then looks at
his peacefully grazing herd and
calmly answers, "Sure, why not?"
The yuppie parks his car,
whips out his notebook computer,
connects it to his cell phone, and
surfs to a NASA page on the In-
ternet, where he calls up a GPS
satellite to get an exact fix on his
location which he then feeds to
another NASA satellite that
scans the area in an ultra-high-
resolution photo.
The young man then opens the
digital photo and exports it to an
image processing facility in Ham-
burg, Germany ... Within seconds,
he receives an email on his Palm
Pilot that the image has been
processed and the data stored. He
then accesses an MS-SQL data-
base through an ODBC connected
Excel spreadsheet with email on
his Blackberry, after a few min-
utes, receives a response.
Finally, he prints out a full-
color, 150-page report on his hi-
tech, miniaturized printer, turns
to the cowboy and says, "You have
exactly 1,586 cows and calves."
"That's right. Well, I guess you
can take one of my calves," says
He watches the young man se-
lect one of the animals and looks
on with amusement as the young
man stuffs it into the trunk of his
Then Bud says to the young
man, "Hey, if I can tell you what
your business is, will you give me
back my calf?"
The young man thinks about it
for a second and then says,
"Okay, why not?"
"You work for the federal gov-
ernment, says Bud.
"Wow! That's correct," says the
yuppie, "but how did you guess
"No guessing required." an-
swered the cowboy. "You showed
up here even though nobody
called you; you want to get paid
for an answer I already knew, to
a question I never asked. You
used millions of dollars worth of
equipment trying to show me how
much smarter than me you are;
and you don't know a thing about
how working people make a living
- or about cows, for that matter.
This is a flock of sheep.
Now give me back my dog.

The Faith Library has been Dig-
ging into Reading! One of the
first events to kick off the Sum-
mer Reading Program was to in-
vite Puppet Ventriloquist Linda
Mohagen from Reva, SD. Mrs.
Mohagen has entertained with
puppets for many years and this
is not the first time that we had
her at the library or school. The
youth love to hear her talk the
puppets and tell stories. Among
the puppets that she shared were
a little weasel, cowboy and cow-
girl siblings, a lion named Dande-
lion, and a lovable bear who
handed out Tootsie Pops. After
the show, Linda talked about how
to make a puppet talk, give it
character, a name and a voice.
Then she had the youth each
choose a puppet, practice and
then demonstrate one-on-one for
everyone to share.

Being alone is an opportunity
for trouble
As I write this, my wife Marilyn
is traveling on a plane to Italy on
an educational tour with nursing
students, some parents and fac-
ulty, and I get to spend 12 days
without supervision. Oh boy, I
can do what I want! Fun.
Although I love and respect
Marilyn very much, I like these
opportunities to be on my own. I
actually accomplish more when
no one is around to tell me what
to do.
I would be a mess if Marilyn
were gone permanently and I
would have a difficult time ad-
justing to being alone. Its a hard
job managing me and I need help.
I dont usually do anything illegal
when Marilyn is gone. But now I
can go fishing when I want, eat
what I want, work at my com-
puter and sing any time of the
day or night or do anything I
choose, without someone asking if
I am alright (its a valid question).
I have gotten into some question-
able circumstances. Like the time
I had to call Marilyn at the border
crossing back into the U.S. on a
return trip from a Canada fishing
A few years ago, my son Jon,
Leon, and I went on a June fish-
ing trip to Ontario. Leon had told
me earlier he had a goal to catch
all the walleyes he could eat at
least once in his life.
Lets go to Canada next sum-
mer, I said. Jon and I can show
you where we can catch walleyes
and other fish until our arms tire
Leon couldnt resist the offer,
even though he had a heart at-
tack and another stent implanted
two weeks before we left for
Canada. Leon helped me manage
crisis counseling programs in re-
sponse to floods and tornados in
Iowa. He is one of the best coun-
selors I know and has helped
many farm and nonfarm families.
We caught and ate walleyes every
meal for a week and a grand pike
Leon roasted over a campfire with
onions, peppers, cilantro and po-
tatoes. We didnt keep too many
fish or try to take too many back
to the U.S.
When we arrived at the border
crossing with 10 walleyes that I
had filleted into 20 halves (four
fish apiece was the limit), we
were surprised when two U.S.
agents asked us to park our truck
in their locked garage. They de-
manded to know where we had
been, how many fish we were
transporting and what we had
been doing.
They placed us in a locked
holding cell, took our phones and
said they would get back to us.
We could ask on the intercom if
we needed assistance. No one
came when we asked to use a rest
The agents went through every
item in our truck. We learned
later they used drug-sniffing dogs
and long-handled mirrors (to
scout the undercarriage of the
truck) searching for drugs.
They accused us of hiding evi-
dence when they found a barbe-
qued walleye we saved to eat as a
snack. They asked how Leon, Jon
and I knew each other.
After a couple hours the two
agents returned and told us we
were in violation of federal
statutes. They had called a fed-
eral game warden. Thankfully,
we were allowed to empty our
bladders, under surveillance.
The federal game warden told
us he could charge us with either
of two statutes: we had too many
fish, because each filet was as-
sumed to be an entire fish (a
$2,000 fine), or because we had
not left enough skin on each filet
(i.e., $100 per person). I had left
skin samples for inspection, but
less than the required 1 by 1 inch
piece of intact skin on some filets.
We could take our choice of viola-
The federal warden--he was
named Wally Hornpecker or
something similar--said he knew
we did not knowingly bring back
too many fish and he knew from
the pieces of skin on the filets
they were walleyes, but he had to
charge us. We chose the cheaper
option; we wrote out our checks
payable to the U.S. District
We arent sure, but we think
the border officials were racially
profiling us, for Leon is African
American, and because of the na-
ture of their questions. They were
probably disappointed when they
figured out we werent drug run-
Perhaps Wally and the border
guards enjoyed our walleyes for
supper and felt good about earn-
ing their keep that day.
When we were allowed to leave
I called Marilyn to explain we
would be home later than ex-
pected. I asked her if she would
welcome a federal offender (me)
in our house. She said I could
come home, thank goodness.
Oh well, I have done worse
things in my life. But this is the
kind of thing that happens when
I dont have someone around to
help supervise me.

... In the spring a young man's
fancy lightly turns to thoughts of
love ... wrote poet Alfred, Lord
That may be, but other things
also turn. The weather is an ex-
ample. ... The first day of spring
is one thing, and the first spring
day is another. The difference be-
tween them is sometimes as great
as a month ... wrote poet Henry
Van Dyke. Around here, it some-
times seems that we go from win-
ter directly into summer. South
Dakota is know for its two sea-
sons winter and road construc-
Farmers, ranchers, golfers,
track and field competitors and
others go from winter clothing to
sunburns. Gardeners and lawn
owners go from mulch and un-
raked leaves to dandelions.
Ranchers go from snow-born
calves to sweat-time branding.
Farmers go from frozen ground to
planting in either mud or in dust.
Trees go from brown gnarled
branches to delicate blossoms and
then to greenish gnarled
branches, all before leaves show
life for the summer.
No matter how short spring-
time feels, the feeling is great.
Shakespeare asked, Shall I com-
pare thee to a summer's day?
Why would any man want to com-
pare a lady to summer? Spring is
the far higher compliment. Spring
rains are romantic. Neil Sedaka
sang, ... I feel the warmth of her
hand in mine. Ooh, I hear laugh-
ter in the rain; walking hand in
hand with the one I love ... A ten-
der moment is a ladys head rest-
ing on your shoulder as both of
you sit on the couch watching
spring showers tap against and
inch down the window. Flowers
are everywhere, just waiting to be
placed in your sweethearts hair.
Winter shut-ins are now out in
the sun. Children to seniors are
running and jumping, or at least
enjoying a light stroll down the
sidewalk. Doors and windows are
open so winters musk can leave
and springs perfume can enter.
The oldest house dog yearns to
leave the carpet to lay in the sun.
Young pups climb the moving
mountains of their siblings, only
to become part of that tumbling
mountain of fur. Calves, lambs,
kittens, toddlers, teens, me
youth at play.
Spring is also work. Now is
when the land is ready for seed,
tents and campers made fully
ready, tourists for entertaining,
concrete for pouring, buildings for
construction. Muscles push and
pull against garden spades, the
baseball and bat, the strike on the
other end of the fishing pole, the
almost-in-reach frisbee. Work
hard, play hard isnt just a saying
on my T-shirt; it is a way of life,
especially during spring.
Spring is also lazy. The sun
and her hands are warm on my
back as I stretch out on a picnic
blanket. Kids dont see my sleepy
eyes behind my sunglasses as I sit
in the baseball stands. Barbecues
are in lieu of hot ovens and wash-
ing of pots and pans. Evening
strolls are in lieu of shoveling
snow or fixing roofs. It is almost
work to stare at a TV when the
front door opens to spring. Jeans
and coats give way to cutoffs and
halter tops ... and now Im back to
a mans fancy. Ah, springtime.
Spring is the time ... by Del Bartels

WASHINGTON, June 4, 2013
Today, the U.S. Department of
Agriculture (USDA), in collabora-
tion with the U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA)
launched the U.S. Food Waste
Challenge, calling on others
across the food chainincluding
producer groups, processors,
manufacturers, retailers, commu-
nities, and other government
agencies to join the effort to re-
duce, recover, and recycle food
waste. Secretary Tom Vilsack and
EPA Acting Administrator Bob
Perciasepe were joined at the
event by representatives from pri-
vate-sector partners and support-
ers including Rio Farms,
Unilever, General Mills, the Food
Waste Reduction Alliance, Feed-
ing America, and Rock and Wrap
It Up!.
Food waste in the United
States is estimated at roughly be-
tween 30 to 40 percent of the food
supply. In 2010, an estimated 133
billion pounds of food from U.S.
retail food stores, restaurants,
and homes never made it into
people's stomachs. The amount of
uneaten food in homes and
restaurants was valued at almost
$390 per U.S. consumer in 2008,
more than an average month's
worth of food expenditures.
"The United States enjoys the
most productive and abundant
food supply on earth, but too
much of this food goes to waste,"
said Secretary Vilsack. "Not only
could this food be going to folks
who need it we also have an op-
portunity to reduce the amount of
food that ends up in America's
landfills. By joining together with
EPA and businesses from around
the country, we have an opportu-
nity to better educate folks about
the problem of food waste and
begin to address this problem
across the nation."
"Food waste is the single
largest type of waste entering our
landfills -- Americans throw away
up to 40 percent of their food. Ad-
dressing this issue not only helps
with combating hunger and sav-
ing money, but also with combat-
ing climate change: food in land-
fills decomposes to create potent
greenhouse gases," said EPA Act-
ing Administrator Bob Perci-
asepe. "I'm proud that EPA is
joining with USDA today to an-
nounce the U.S. Food Waste
Challenge. With the help of part-
ners across the country, we can
ensure that our nation's food goes
to our families and those in need
not the landfill."
The goal of the U.S. Food
Waste Challenge is to lead a fun-
damental shift in how we think
about and manage food and food
waste in this country. The Chal-
lenge includes a goal to have 400
partner organizations by 2015
and 1,000 by 2020.
As part of its contribution to
the U.S. Food Waste Challenge,
USDA is initiating a wide range
of activities including activities to
reduce waste in the school meals
program, educate consumers
about food waste and food stor-
age, and develop new technolo-
gies to reduce food waste. USDA
will also work with industry to in-
crease donations from imported
produce that does not meet qual-
ity standards, streamline proce-
dures for donating wholesome
misbranded meat and poultry
products, update U.S. food loss es-
timates at the retail level, and
pilot-test a meat-composting pro-
gram to reduce the amount of
meat being sent to landfills from
food safety inspection labs.
Through its Food Recovery
Challenge, EPA will provide U.S.
Food Waste Challenge partici-
pants with the opportunity to ac-
cess data management software
and technical assistance
ery/) to help them quantify and
improve their sustainable food
management practices.

ties and the activities of those

Your Questions, SS Answers
Question: What is the differ-
ence between Social Security dis-
ability and Supplemental
Security Income (SSI) disability?
Answer: Social Security ad-
ministers two major programs
that pay disability benefits. Social
Security Disability Insurance
(SSDI) payments are based on
your work and earnings, while
SSI disability payments are
based on financial need. Both dis-
ability programs require that you
have a severe medical impair-
ment or combination of impair-
ments that prevents you from
working for at least a year or is
expected to result in death.
Social Security taxes are paid
by workers, employers, and self-
employed persons. These taxes
fund disability benefits under
SSDI. To be eligible for a Social
Security benefit, you must earn
enough credits to be insured. We
pay disability benefits to blind or
disabled workers,widow(er)s, or
adults disabled since childhood
who are otherwise eligible. We
base monthly disability benefits
on the Social Security earnings
record of the insured worker.
SSI is a program financed
through generalrevenues, not So-
cial Security taxes. We pay SSI
disability benefits to adults or
children who are disabled or
blind, have limited income and re-
sources, meet the living arrange-
ment requirements, and are
otherwise eligible.For more infor-
mation, visit our website at

The State of South Dakota and
the Governors Office of Economic
Development are taking new
steps to promote the oil and gas
industry within the state.
With South Dakotas proxim-
ity to the Bakken Shale and
Williston Basin, we are really po-
sitioned well to accelerate activity
in this industry, said Hunter
Roberts, State Energy Policy Di-
rector. We are not only looking to
bring new business in to South
Dakota, but also to assist our ex-
isting companies that have the
potential to serve this market.
The focus on the oil and gas in-
dustry and its supply chain came
as part of the GOEDs recent re-
view of the states key industries,
when the focus on renewable en-
ergy was expanded to include all
energy sectors.
As part of this effort, the
GOED has engaged the services
of Black Hills Business Strategy,
a Rapid City-based consulting
BHBS specializes in manage-
ment consulting, turnarounds,
mergers and acquisitions and its
team has significant experience
in the oil and gas industry.
The consultants from BHBS
are conducting a study that will
ultimately give the state and our
businesses a leg up in capturing
opportunities related to the oil
and gas industry, Roberts said.
Jim Quinn, one of the BHBS
consultants, said that the study
will be conducted in three stages.
Right now, we are in the first
stage and in the process of identi-
fying the oil and gas operators,
drillers, contractors, and suppli-
ers who are active in the Williston
Basin and provide the greatest
opportunity for creating jobs in
South Dakota, Quinn said. Our
goal is to come out with a clear
understanding of what the spe-
cific needs are for each company
and criteria they use for sourcing
goods and services, so that we can
better identify the opportunities
for South Dakota, create jobs, and
further business growth.
The consultants also attended
the Williston Basin Petroleum
Conference in Saskatchewan,
Canada, as part of the South
Dakota contingency earlier this
State working
to move
forward in oil
and gas
