Perkins County Fairgrounds receives new chute Young conducts roping clinic
May 23 and 24, 2013, eight ropers varying from beginner to experienced, were eager and honored to be under the guidance of Trey Young. Trey, assisted by his dad, Doug Young, started the school out on the ground, progressed to roping the hot heels and by the end, moved to roping live calves. Although, the strong wind both days made it more challenging, the ropers, still managed to advance. A special highlight after the first day of the school, was the installation of a brand new Priefert roping chute and alleyway donated by the Clyde, Lorrie and Terry Hafner Ranch and the Dee and Robin Wilcox ranch. What a welcome addition to the Perkins County Fairgrounds that is!! Many thanks to those families for this most generous gift. A special thanks to Lonnie Krause, Kenny Kocer, Kathy and Nicole Hafner, Max Loughlin and Claudio and all who helped with the installation. Those participating in the school were: Collin Palmer, Laura OLeary, Callie Sheperd, Hallie Kocer, Bailey Oliver, Kelsey Pierson, Julianna Kari and Nicole Hafner.

Garden Gate
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 garden 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 stuff? 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 minerals 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 annually doing a thorough cleaning of those containers. Some containers 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 encourages 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 watered garden; and they shall not sorrow any more at all.

Sanitize the Sink: Its hard to believe, but your dirty kitchen sink has more bacteria than your toilet seat. Use a product labeled as an EPA-registered disinfectant, or make your own. To disinfect, clean your sink with soap and water first, then spray a mist of vinegar followed by a mist of hydrogen peroxide, and let air-dry. (Dont mix the vinegar and hydrogen peroxide togetherspray one after the other.) If your sink is stainless steel, make it sparkle afterward by putting a few drops of mineral oil on a soft cloth and buffing. This prevents water buildup, which deters mold and keeps the sink looking clean longer.

The Prairie Doc Perspective

The moth into the flame
By Richard P. Holm M.D. Why does the US have the most expensive health care system in the world? What is inflammation? New ways to turn off inflammation have revolutionized the treatment of arthritis and other illnesses, which begs the question. Coming from the Latin words "into the flame," like what bonfire sitters observe the moth doing on a summer night, inflammation is a natural phenomenon that can be harmful and almost evil. But there is much more to this story. During the summers of my first four years of medical school, I was honored to spend time with the doctors of the Bartron Clinic in Watertown, where they generously provided an educational experience for me. I realize now at that level of training, how little help I was to any of them, but how much help their wisdom would eventually be to me. One highlight on inflammation and the history of medicine came from pediatrician Dr. Ebehardt Heinrichs. While we were examining a young child with acute arthritis, he pointed out on her hands the four physical findings famously described by Celsus, a Roman who lived at the time of Jesus. "These are the cardinal signs of inflammation: "rubor" (redness,) "tumor" (swelling,) "calor" (heat,) and "dolor" (pain,)" he said. A red, swollen, hot, and painful joint is not the only medical condition of inflammation I saw those Watertown summers. There were abscesses, appendicitis, tonsillitis, meningitis and sinusitis, all indicating benefits of the inflammatory response, where invading infections were fought off by the body's white-cell warriors. Also beneficial, we have recently learned that muscle growth comes as a result of a response to localized acute inflammation that follows exercise. Other new studies show that low-intensity training, like walking, can reduce destructive chronic inflammation. All-inall, our bodies are protected and even sculpted by the yin and yang of balanced and healthy inflammation. But seeing that young girl with arthritis, I realized there can be harm resulting from inflammation run amok. That summer in Watertown I also saw patients with asthma, poison ivy, psoriasis, Lupus, and rheumatoid arthritis; illnesses the result of too much inflammation. Add to this, now we've learned certain cancers grow because of inflammation. And now we have medicine that can turn off small and harmful targets of inflammation: cooling crippling arthritis, soothing devastating rashes, and even shrinking growing cancers. Rubor, tumor, calor, dolor... it can be a bad and a good thing!

Pastors Perspective
Proverbs 9:10 "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding." Wisdom is something that seems to be pursued by many and found by few. But what is it? How do you define it? Well the best definition of wisdom that I have heard is, "Seeing and responding to life situations from God's frame of reference." If we could see life from God's point of view and act in accordance with that perspective we would indeed be wise. The problem is that most of the time we don't even consider God's frame of reference. Instead we make decisions based upon what we see and think are best and we often suffer as a result. In fact the opposite of wisdom is to follow our natural inclinations. May we cry out to God and ask him to show us how He views life and the circumstances around us. If we see that, we will certainly respond in a wise way. May God bless you with His frame of reference. Pastor Brad

On Christ we build
The Prairie Home Church, at Maurine, SD, would like to announce a ground breaking ceremony 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 having a building able to meet the needs of the growing church body. A building committee was selected 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 triumphs. We look forward to celebrating 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 building but rather the people who fellowship 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 committee and will accommodate the needs of the growing community. All ages will benefit from the new construction that will facilitate Sunday worship, celebrations, vacation 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 finished. This ground breaking was just the beginning of the next stage. So please join us as we celebrate the future of the building project and we seek Gods wisdom to do his will!

Daniel Burkhalter places in two events at State and sets a new school record in the 2 mile run
The Bison track team had a great weekend at the State Track Meet in Sioux Falls. The highlight of the meet came when Daniel Burkhalter ran his 2 mile race in 10:07:21, finishing third. Daniel's effort set a new Bison High School record in that event. The old record was 10:20 set in 1978 by Jim Miller. Daniel also placed 8th in the mile run with a time of 4:45. Congratulations Daniel, it was a fun race to watch. Daniel was the only athlete that placed this year, but other team members had a really good showing. Josh McKinstry set a personal record (PR) in the triple jump, jumping 38'1" and finishing 10th in the state. Josh also ran the 800 in the Medley relay in 2:24, that's another PR for him. Cole Buer broke out of his little slump and finished 11th (18'8.25") in the long jump. The medley relay team ran 4:15 placing 13th. Clayton Prelle, Cole Buer, Drake Butsavage and Josh McKinstry all had a part in that effort. The good news for this team is that they are very young; everybody is back next year and hopefully we can qualify all these same guys and a few more. I'm already looking forward to it! I would also like to take a few girls to compete next year as well. I would like to say a special "thank you" to the parents for their support all season. It just wouldn't be the same without you. Now do you want some more good news? We are building a following all around the state. There were a number of coaches and parents from around the state (some I didn't know at all) that mentioned that they were paying attention to the Bison track team. That only happens when good things are happening! Congrats, once again to all our state qualifiers!

The Mustache Trend
to have a premonition that meeting the famous columnist is in our future. In preparation for our photo opportunity with Baxter Blackwhenever that might be my husband began growing out his whiskers this Spring. The photo he wants to have taken would be me flanked by mustachewearing Baxter Black and my husband on each sideIF it happens. As a woman on the receiving lips of a walrus-style whiskers and noticer of whisker issues, Im sharing my observations for any men considering participation in the mustache trend in hopes of helping prevent mustache embarrassing moments. Do not accept a mug of foamy tap beer without a napkin or hankie. Do not eat thickly buttered toast or corn on the cob without a napkin or hankie. Do not drink a cup of coffee without a napkin or hankie. In fact, just pack around a hankie or grab a napkin/paper towel if unplanned eating or drinking opportunities arise. If youre a self-conscious guy, always check the alignment of the mustache in the mirror first thing in the morning. This is when mustaches are most likely to appear unruly or crooked. Check the rearview mirror prior to exiting the vehicle to ensure

Seven days of rain impacts South Dakota's farmers & ranchers

In the last seven days most of the state saw rain events which dumped as much as 10 inches on some crop acres, says Laura Edwards, SDSU Extension Climate Field Specialist. "How much moisture received and whether it brought damage or relief to agriculture producers really depended on which South Dakota County their land is in," Edwards said. "Some farmers will need to replant, others have to wait to plant while their field sits several inches under water, and at the same time many ranchers couldn't be happier because now forage and range conditions are looking better than they have in a long time." Most of the heavy precipitation fell on Turner, Lincoln and Minnehaha Counties; totals exceeded 10 inches in the center of the storm. This includes areas westsouthwest of Sioux Falls that received over six inches in 24 hours from Saturday to Sunday morning. A stretch from Onida to Miller also received at least 6-8 inches; with several northwestern South Dakota counties receiving several inches from localized, intense thunderstorms. Streamflow on the Big Sioux and Vermillion Rivers came up quickly, but are projected to fall within a few days, barring additional heavy precipitation. "Our primary concern right now is flooding in fields in the eastern part of the state," Edwards said. Depending on the type of rainstorm, Edwards says fields could be impacted by flash flooding, which can erode soil, wash away new seed and leave large cutouts

Amy Kirk is a ranch wife from Custer, South Dakota.

Although my husband isnt aware of it, his decision to grow out his mustache again is just in time to be a part of the current mustache trend. Ive seen a variety of merchandise featuring mustaches: sunglasses with attached mustaches, necklaces, rings, cookie cutters, and silkscreen tshirts promoting mustaches. When my husband and I met, his mustache was his trademark and the source of much ribbing during our courtship. According to old family photos, its apparent that big mustaches have always been a part of his familys history. Pictures of his great grandfather and great great grandfather show them sporting big mustaches. My husbands admired their mustaches as well as the staches on actor Sam Elliott and cowboy humorist Baxter Black. A while back I received an email from Baxter about a column Id written regarding married ranch couples. Mr. Black personally addressed my husband in his salutation and that has led my husband

neatness and cleanliness before mingling with people. As a backup if mirrors arent available, establish a habit of subconsciously shaping the mustache with the index finger and thumb. If you dont have a miniature mustache comb, a toothbrush makes a fine mustache brush. *TIP* just dont be lazy and use toothbrushes that someone you live with currently brushes their teeth with. Periodically groom the stache with your tiny comb or mustache toothbrush to avoid embarrassing mustache disarrangement or having unsightly unidentifiable objects in it. Remove pull tabs on cans before sipping to avoid whiskerpulling/catching. If youre the father of a baby that recognizes you with a mustache, should you decide to shave it off, expect your infant to be scared of you the first time he or she sees you whiskerless. Avoid downpours. Heavy rains will cause major drippage from a mustache. When eating messy foods swipe the stache frequently between bites. May these help potential trend followers establish a good-looking mustache, but the most important tip is NEVER EVER tell your wife you let the dog kiss or lick your mustache clean.

in fields; or fields are under standing water, which can suffocate young plants. Edwards says that based on discussions with SDSU Extension Agronomists, the impact this flooding will have on the 2013 crop all depends on how fast fields dry up and how mature the crop is - if plants have a few leaves above the waterline, the crop may survive. She adds that some of the long term effects won't be known until later in the growing season. "This has been a cold wet spring punctuated by extreme rainfall. If the plants do survive this most recent event, we have yet to know what type of diseases may follow," she said. The heavy rain can also induce crusting on the soil surface, which can slow down emerging plants, or cause uneven emergence in corn and soybean fields. As to whether or not South Dakota is still in a drought, Edwards says it all depends on where in South Dakota you're located. "The eastern side of the state has made phenomenal gains this spring which has improved the drought situation dramatically. I still have some concern about the long term deep soil moisture all across the state that could affect us later this summer," she said. The western counties are holding steady, but drought impacts could emerge quickly as the area enters its dry summer season. Before replanting, Edwards encourages farmers to consult their crop insurance representatives. More information will be posted to

South Dakotas State Flag

Blue skies and sunshine translate to a perfect summer day. Those elements are reflected in South Dakotas flag. The story of the states banner began in 1909, when State Sen. Ernest May of Deadwood walked into the office of the State Department of History in Pierre. He discussed the need for a state flag with state historian Doane Robinson. Turning to me, Robinson said, Miss Anding will make you a flag, Ida (Anding) McNeil said in an article in the Jan. 20, 1963, Rapid City Daily Journal. McNeil, a legislative reference librarian at the time, designed and made a flag that featured a blazing sun in the center of a field of blue, with the words South Dakota above the sun in the arc of the circle and The Sunshine State below the sun in the arc of the circle. McNeil said in the newspaper article that Robinson suggested a blazing sun emblem because of South Dakotas many days of sunshine. McNeil showed the sample flag to Robinson, who remarked that the Great Seal of the State of South Dakota would look nice on the other side. McNeil agreed, and the state seal set against a field of dark blue was placed on the reverse side. A bill adopting the state flag was passed by the Legislature in 1909. If I had known as much about flags as I do now, I certainly would have left the reverse side plain, McNeil said in the Rapid City Daily Journal article. A two-sided flag is very difficult to make. In addition to the added work, it is difficult to prevent one side from showing through onto the other. McNeil explained in the newspaper article that to make the state flag, she appliqued the golden sun and embroidered the suns rays. She then took another piece of silk, painted details of the state seal on it and appliqued this to the reverse side of the flag. In addition to being difficult to make, a two-sided flag was expensive to produce. The silk material from which McNeil made the flag cost $12.50 per yard and the materials for one flag cost about $75 in 1963. McNeil left her state job when she married in 1921. Although she made the first state flag, she is better remembered for being a pioneer in radio broadcasting. She became known as Mrs. Pierre while owner and operator of KGFX radio in Pierre. Another version of how South Dakotas flag came into being states that May told Robinson that Deadwood pioneer Seth Bullock wanted a state flag. Robinson makes no mention of Bullocks involvement in the state flag in Doane Robinsons Encyclopedia of South Dakota. David A. Wolff of Spearfish, author of Seth Bullock: Black Hills Lawman, said that he could find no evidence in his research on Bullock to support the idea of Bullock being involved in the first state flag. During the 1963 legislative session, Rep. William Sahr of Pierre introduced a bill to modify the state flag. The new one-sided flag kept a sun with a serrated edge on a field of sky blue but placed the state seal inside the sun. Around the sun were the words South Dakota and The Sunshine State. The states banner was again revised in 1992, when the Legislature approved changing the wording on the flag to read The Mount Rushmore State instead of The Sunshine State. This reflected a change in the state nickname. The legislation for both the 1963 and 1992 changes contained a provision that any previous flags made in conformance with state law were to remain official state flags. That means that it is legal to use any of the three official state flags. Not everyone likes our state flag. The North American Vexillological Association, an association of flag experts, ranked South Dakotas flag as one of the five worst in North America in 2001. During the 2012 legislative session, a bill to adopt a flag designed by Spearfish artist Dick Termes was introduced. This design featured a sunburst, an American Indian medicine wheel and concentric blue circles. A House committee rejected the call to look at revising the flag.

Page 14 The Bison Courier Thursday, June 6, 2013 Grand River Roundup ............................................................... By Betty Olson
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 of roads were washed out. The prairie is so green youd swear this was Ireland 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 gate! 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 Saturday. 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 there! 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, Patriot, Conservative, or Constitution when applying to the IRS for tax-exempt status they were targeted for audits and investigations and their applications were delayed, usually for three years or were never granted. Even Rev. Billy Graham was under investigation! Now people have started to come forward telling how the Obama administration ordered them to be audited and investigated, not only by the IRS, but also by the DOJ, the FBI, the EPA, OSHA, ATF, NSA, Homeland Security and numerous other government departments. This is scary and infuriating! Lets hope the long arm of government is just as incompetent during these unlawful investigations as this guy: A cowboy named Bud was riding through livestock in a remote pasture in western Dakota when suddenly a brand-new BMW advanced toward him in a cloud of dust. 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 obviously 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 Internet, 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 ultrahigh-resolution photo. The young man then opens the digital photo and exports it to an image processing facility in Hamburg, 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 database through an ODBC connected Excel spreadsheet with email on his Blackberry, after a few minutes, 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 Bud. He watches the young man select one of the animals and looks on with amusement as the young man stuffs it into the trunk of his car. 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 government. says Bud. "Wow! That's correct," says the yuppie, "but how did you guess that?" "No guessing required." answered 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.
