The Philip Elementary School’s graduation ceremony for the kindergarten class was held Tuesday, May 14. After entering the stage by way of a Scottie dog house
door, the students sang and performed for the audience. Under the direction of kindergarten instructor Melanie Morehart and aide Mary Nelson, the students sang
“Who Let the Letters Out?,” “Tooty Ta,” “Ten Best Friends,” “Five Green Jelly Beans” and “Limbo Rock.” The students chanted “Kindergarten Cadence” and presented
the poem “Your Flowers.” The students gave flowers and footprints to their parents. A video was shown of the students, the students’ parents and snapshots of the
school year. The presentation of graduation certificates by School District Superintendent Keven Morehart completed the ceremony. Shown, back row, from left,

The Philip City Council, in its
meeting Monday, June 3, brought
itself up to date on an agenda’s
worth of projects.
No permit will be issued to D&T
Auto Parts – Dale Morrison – to
construct an access road east of
that property until a hydraulic
study for flood water runoff can be
done. The South Dakota Depart-
ment of Transportation listed that
a Works Project Administration
dam was constructed in 1935 in
what is now the southeast quad-
rant of the intersection of highways
14 and 73. A drainage ditch was
created from that dam to a second
drainage basin to the east at pres-
ent day Wood Avenue. Over the
years, other improvements have
been done to the drainage system.
Mayor Mike Vetter will make a
pitch at a West River Water Devel-
opment District meeting June 20 to
see if it might help with the costs of
a hydraulic study. The cost de-
pends on the degree and scope of
the study, especially if it includes if
the dam system were not there and
if a five to 100 year flood event is to
be considered. Harlan Quenzer
with the SPN and Associates engi-
neering firm said, “I think these
dams upstream are essential. It
doesn’t take much to figure what it
would be like without the dams
there. That’s the easy part.”
The council revisited a disturb-
ing the peace complaint concerning
dog kennels within the city limits.
Police Chief Kit Graham reported
that needing to call a dog owner
about a loose dog is fairly infre-
quent, and the need to impound a
dog is even rarer. The council dis-
cussed requiring proof that dogs
are vaccinated against rabies. Vet-
ter led the council in believing if
the current rules on the books are
enforced, that should be sufficient.
The council approved renewal of
the six malt beverage licenses in
Philip. The Dakota Bar was also
approved for a special event license
for a beer garden during Scotty
Philip Days, June 14-16.
The projected E. Cherry Street
repositioning for a future fertilizer
plant by Midwest Cooperative is
being watched. Storm sewer place-
ments and road upkeep are being
addressed by Midwest.
The Wood Avenue and Walden
Ave. utility and resurfacing project
is going well. Quenzer said that re-
cent wet weather has put workers
maybe a week back, but the cur-
rent four work crews should catch
up pretty quick. “You don’t want to
be in the way out there. It’s moving
pretty quick,” said Quenzer.
The city is still in the process of
applying for grant to help fund the
proposed Philip trails project. The
plans are for a walk/bike path
around the swimming pool, roping
arena, fairgrounds and the rest of
the large triangular tract of land
west of Philip.
A request from Nels Crowser to
graze sheep at the rubble site was
tabled for now. A counter offer will
be made for the possible purchase
of some of his land to be used as an
expansion of or a new site for the
rubble site.
The council approved an
amended variance and vacate fee
policy. Property owners submitting
variance or vacate requests will re-
imburse the city for all costs in-
curred. This includes the fees for
recording the variance or vacate
with the Haakon County Register
of Deeds and the publication costs
of the public hearing notice.
Approved building permits in-
clude for Andrea Carley to build a
deck. Bob Fugate plans to put in a
sidewalk, do yard improvements,
and remove and replace trees.
Marty Gartner will put up storage
buildings, and for his Lucky Strike
bowling alley will replace a side-
walk, repair existing building, and
remodel the east addition. Rod and
LeeAnn Knutson plan to put up a
fence. West River/Lyman-Jones
Rural Water plans to put up a
80’x100’ building, including water
and sewer and a driveway. Tena
Slovek, along with putting in a con-
crete retaining wall, sidewalk and
20’x20’ basketball court, may put in
an ivy fence if the fencing materials
correspond to code.
The city will increase its employ-
ees’ health insurance deductibles
in order to lower the insurance pre-
miums. The city will pay the in-
crease in deductibles so no
employee will experience an in-
crease of out-of-pocket expenses.
The city will still save money on
employee health insurance.
Bills pending as of June 3 totaled
over $230,637. This includes over
$28,800 to SPN and Associates and
over $11,842 for city employee in-
surance premiums.
The police department has sug-
gested that a swim-at-your-own-
risk sign at Lake Waggoner be
repositioned so that it encompasses
the hot water lagoon. On the topic
of swimming, the Haakon County
Young Women have requested
that, like last summer, the swim-
ming pool’s bathrooms remain un-
locked during Thursdays’ Hot
Summer Nights events at the
HCYW Kiddie Park. Swimming
lessons for preschoolers will be held
June 24-28. Additional lessons will
be available if the number of stu-
dents is sufficient. Preschoolers
must be potty trained.
The next regular city council
meeting will be Monday, July 1, at
7:00 p.m. in the Haakon County
Courthouse community room.
City council agenda full

When not feeling well for several
days, Dan Van Gorp had no idea
the struggle that his body was deal-
ing with. For a few days he had
been dealing with a discomfort in
his chest, which he believed to be
the onset of a chest cold or early
stages of pneumonia.
But waking up on the morning
of December 10, 2012, Van Gorp re-
alized the discomfort was now
more of a pain and worse than be-
fore. He contacted his office and
told them he would not be in that
day and was debating whether or
not he should go to the doctor. After
the pain continued to increase, Van
Gorp drove to the Philip hospital.
He visited with the receptionist,
telling her of his symptoms and in-
quired whether he should go to the
clinic or the emergency room. After
hearing of his discomfort, the re-
ceptionist directed him to go the
emergency room.
Once the doctor arrived, he or-
dered an electrocardiogram, EKG,
to be done.
“Immediately the doctor re-
turned and stated that I was hav-
ing a massive heart attack,” said
Van Gorp, “and that he was going
to administer some medicine to
help me relax, but instead it com-
pletely knocked me out and my
next memory is waking up at the
Mayo Clinic on January 7, 2013.”
During the days between De-
cember 10 to January 7, even
though Van Gorp has no recollec-
tion of the days, he was in a battle
for his life.
Van Gorp was transferred from
Philip to the Rapid City Regional
Hospital and his family in Pella,
IA, was contacted and told that he
had been admitted. His dad imme-
diately left for Rapid City, driving
10 hours knowing his son’s condi-
tion was not good and that the odds
were better for him to die rather
than to live.
Right away he went through the
procedure to have a stent put in his
heart. The stent was unable to re-
lieve the pressure in his heart and
a second procedure was done and
the tandemheart system was con-
nected to his heart.
A tandemheart system is a tem-
porary, external, continuous flow,
centrifugal pump that is placed
through the femoral vein. The
pump is used to stabilize critically
ill patients who require short term
left heart support that cannot be
adequately achieved with other
Once Van Gorp’s heart was re-
ceiving the support from the
tandemheart system, he was flown
to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester,
MN, on December 19. Once arriv-
ing at the Mayo Clinic, he under-
went triple-bypass open heart
“Originally my family was told
that the open heart surgery was
successful,” said Van Gorp, “but
they had left my chest open for two
days to watch the healing, and
prior to closing it, they informed
my family that my heart was still
not functioning properly.”
So on December 27, a Left Ven-
tricular Assist Device, LVAD, was
surgically placed in Van Gorp’s
chest. It is similar to a type of me-
chanical heart, where it helps the
heart pump oxygen-rich blood
throughout the body. Unlike an ar-
tificial heart though, the LVAD
does not replace the heart, it just
helps it do its job, which meant the
difference between life and death
for Van Gorp.
For days following the LVAD
surgery, his family was by his side
and on January 7 it was another
answer to prayers when he re-
gained consciousness.
“During those few days when I
was supposed to be waking up, my
dad and my sister would ask me to
squeeze their hand or move my fin-
gers, and I was able to respond to
their commands,” said Van Gorp,
“but when the nurses would ask me
to do the same thing, I wouldn’t re-
spond. So, even being in a coma, I
could recognize my family and the
connection was there.”
Being so ill and in a coma, Van
Gorp’s family was faced with mak-
ing some major decisions.
“Making the decisions were re-
ally hard on my family, since there
were major risks attached to each
of those decisions,” Van Gorp said,
“but what helped them was all the
calls, cards, letters, and Facebook
messages of support and the
prayers that we received.
Not only did the support help
my family, but they also helped me.
They read all the messages to me
while I was in the coma and after
waking up, I didn’t remember the
entire messages but I could remem-
ber parts of the messages.”
Not only could he remember por-
tions of what his family said, he
also remembered the dreams he
“The most vivid dream I had was
of my funeral. The dream appeared
to be exactly like my uncle’s fu-
neral that I attended a few months
back, expect this time I was in the
casket,” he said, “I remember being
pushed down the aisle of the
church in the casket and I could see
everyone was looking at me.”
Another dream I had was a
mother cat was sitting in the cor-
ner of the room and her kitten was
very cold, and she was doing every-
thing she could to keep the kitten
warm. The doctors believe that this
dream may have been related to
when they had packed my body
with ice packs to reduce a fever,
but one doesn’t know for sure,” said
Van Gorp, “I had several dreams
that I can remember and some of
them make sense and others do
The fever was one of the health
obstacles and complications that he
faced during the time he was in the
coma. He spiked a fever of 104º and
the doctors could not determine the
“The doctors took every precau-
tion they could and at one time
they were actually too cautious,”
said Van Gorp. “I was connected to
eleven machines at one time. They
were doing all the work for my
heart, breathing, bowels, liver, kid-
neys and that’s when the fever
came on. They finally started to
slowly disconnect the machines
and my fever went down. My body
was rejecting the extra help and
was sending the message that the
only organ that needed help was
my heart, the others were healthy.”
At another point Van Gorp suf-
fered a minor stroke, which af-
fected the visual area of the brain.
As a result, he has a blind spot in
the upper left quadrant of each eye.
There is a small chance that his vi-
sion may return, but the doctors
were very concerned that there
may be brain damage.
“Constantly I was doing mental
chores of answering questions,
spelling my name, stating the date,
and counting,” said Van Gorp, “but
thankfully I showed no signs of any
Even though regaining con-
sciousness was a milestone, the re-
covery process was just beginning.
“When I woke up I was so
thirsty that the first words out of
my mouth to my dad was, ‘I want
copious amounts of water’,”
laughed Van Gorp, “my Dad knew
that if I used a word like ‘copious’ I
must have some good brain func-
But recovery was going to take
time and even the simple task of
swallowing was a chore. Since it
had been nearly a month since he
had swallowed, his tongue had
shriveled up and his vocal cords
were diminished, there was a con-
cern with fluids going down the
esophagus to the stomach and not
into the lungs.
“For days I was only allowed ice
chips and in very small amounts
and I was so thirsty,” said Van

Lookin’ Around by Syd Iwan
Gardening is an iffy proposition
here in western South Dakota. We
never have quite enough rain so
watering, except in highly unusual
years, is required. We also have
strong winds, hail, plagues of
grasshoppers, hot temperatures,
and various wild critters that like
vegetables. If you do insist on gar-
dening and actually raise some-
thing, you have overcome the odds
and can be proud of yourself.
Like many of you, I rather like to
play in the dirt and have done
quite a bit of it over the years. I
started out helping my mom and
grandmother who were the main
gardeners when I was young.
Grandma was very good at it, and
Mom was okay although I don’t
think she enjoyed it much. I helped
with some of the weeding and the
picking of such things as peas,
beans and cucumbers. After a
while, I became the main gardener
in the family except for corn and
potatoes which were Dad’s fa-
vorites. My main problem at first
was getting carried away and
planting such a huge garden that I
couldn’t properly tend it all. Some-
times it also produced more stuff
than we needed or could freeze,
can, or give away. When those
nifty seed catalogs come in the
dead of winter, it looks so easy, and
you decide you’d like to try this,
and that and some of those. The
first rule of gardening, then, is to
avoid getting carried away. Only
plant what you have the time and
energy to tend and not more than
you can reasonably use. I came to
that conclusion the hard way and
only through experience.
When it comes to watering, I did
come up with a system that
worked pretty well for me. I would
drag out the old two-row corn lister
and hitch it to the little Ford trac-
tor. I made deep lister rows going
slightly downhill, and planted in
the bottom of the rows. Then I
could run water down the rows in-
stead of sprinkling the whole gar-
den. This worked best if I used
some mulch as well to keep the
water from evaporating right away
in the hot days of July. My main
problem here was my father who
had learned in planting field corn
in the early years that corn should
be hilled up. If he got in the gar-
den, he tended to not only fill in my
lister rows but hill them up as well.
This made watering extremely dif-
ficult because water runs off hills
and doesn’t do the plants there
much good. As a result, I encour-
aged Dad to raise his corn and po-
tatoes in a different place than I
gardened so he wouldn’t start
hilling all my stuff.
Then, after experimenting with
everything from huckleberries to
kohlrabies, it finally occurred to
me that what I most needed to
grow were those things that taste
much better home raised than pur-
chased. Tomatoes and cucumbers,
as you probably know, are ever so
much better home raised. Melons
may fit in that category too, but I
don’t hunger for those as much as
I do for tomatoes and cucumbers.
On the other hand, my taste buds
are not sufficiently sophisticated to
tell much difference between
onions and potatoes raised or pur-
chased. There is one exception to
that in those little early potatoes
you scratch around and pull out be-
fore they’re completely mature.
Those are tasty.
One other rule I started to follow
was to plant nothing that was a
complete bug magnet. This espe-
cially applies to potatoes and any
member of the cabbage family. Dad
didn’t seem to mind strolling down
a row of spuds, picking off the po-
tato bugs, and throwing them in a
coffee can he carried that had a lit-
tle gas in the bottom. I didn’t have
quite enough patience for that.
Cabbage worms are harder to pick
off so insecticide is the usual re-
course there. I don’t like insecti-
cides so my cabbage, broccoli,
cauliflower and the like come to me
by way of the grocery store. They
probably have to use insecticide to
grow them too, but I just wash
them really well when I get them.
Well, as often has happened to
me in my life, once I’ve experi-
mented with something to the enth
degree and worn myself out with it,
I somewhat lose interest and go on
to other things. That’s sort of the
way it is for me with gardening. As
a result, my efforts this year only
involve two potted tomato plants
and a few pots of cucumbers. They
say gardening is good for the soul,
so I hope those few plants will suf-
ficiently nourish that part of me. If
not, I can always expand next year.
Even then, however, I probably
won’t get carried away. I think in
this case I’m better off following
another favorite rule of mine which
is, “Keep it simple, Stupid.” Not a
bad idea when it comes to garden-
ing in good old South Dakota
where the odds are somewhat
stacked against us and disaster
can be just around the corner. Yet
we still keep right on trying. Why
is that?

Springtime senses ... by Del Bartels
Our senses can reach a degree of awareness that is almost transcen-
dental. A fly annoys as it brazenly lands on my arm, and my quickest
strike only temporarily shoos it away. A butterfly, though, is patiently,
finally enticed to land on my forearm, and I hold my breath to override
any twinge of my reflexes. The minuscule air shift of its wings is just
within the threshold of my skin’s acknowledgement. Funny how the
hairs on your arm raise or flex differently according to which insect’s
legs are brushing there.
Scent wise, the fragrance of crabapple blossoms is enjoyably subtle.
The neighborhood drift of someone barbecuing is easy. Fresh cut grass
is a man’s inhalation of summer roughhousing and sports, yet the sour
musk of old clippings is yard work needing to be finished. I don’t know
which I prefer, the oily whiff of an antique convertible or the invigor-
ating smell of a new automobile. Neither beats the intoxicating, will-o-
wisp perfume of a woman’s hair as she gives a hug.
Listen. Can you hear the breeze? Get past the hum of car tires down
the block. Register, then ignore, the chained dog a few blocks away
being tormented by a squirrel. A somewhat regular thumping comes
from a backyard somewhere; a father and son are warming up for
youth baseball. The light clicking of nails on the sidewalk is my old dog
lazily coming to me to get her ears scratched. An older couple are
strolling hand in hand down the sidewalk; he is talking and, though I
can’t make out the words, she is smiling. I will always believe that
laughter carries farther than any other sound, whether through an
open kitchen window, from the city swimming pool, from a cruising mo-
torist waving to a meandering pedestrian – laughing needs no real rea-
son, the reason for its existence is to be heard.
Ah, the tastes of spring! Winter coffee was for its heat, now coffee is
for its rich flavor as it steams with airborne gratification even before
the first lingering sip. I look forward to the crusty stickiness of roasted
marshmallows. Fresh baked bread, lightly toasted and with a thin
layer of what remains of last season’s preserves is a soft crunch of
morning heaven. These are tastier, though not the memory makers,
than the salt on my face earlier this morning while I jogged with my
son on a gravel road. None, though, are similar to the taste of the lady’s
palm as I kissed it during a slow dance last evening.
The sky, as it stretches from horizon to zenith, blends a million
shades of blue. Textured tans and browns of tree trunks transform
through wavering sunlight and shadows to the multitudinous greens
of leaves. Springtime colors are as varied as family members, friends,
neighbors and those I have yet to meet. Blue, brown, green, black or
hazel, what color will I next be shaded in when I see my reflection from
someone else’s eyes? Since it is springtime, that reflection should be of
me smiling, and I hope they have reason to smile back.
The Midland Farmer’s Market opened for the 2013 summer season Friday, May 24. There were eight vendors. The number
of venders, eight on that Friday, is expected to grow as more and more produce and other wares become available during
the summer. There were some started plants, baked goods, handcrafted items, children’s clothing, kitchen towels, crocheted
baby items, dishrags, potholders and dish scrubbies, baked goods and farm fresh eggs. The market is held in the city park
unless inclement weather moves it indoors to the American Legion Hall or a church basement. As was done last summer,
each Friday will attempt to follow a theme. Shown clockwise from upper left are Pastor Andy and Jennifer Blye, David and
Beth Flom, Connie Johnson and Crystal Neuharth. Courtesy photos

Gorp, “but once I graduated to
water, I would have to drink with
my head bent forward to make sure
I was swallowing right.”
It also took time to gain strength
and learn how to live the LVAD.
The cable for the LVAD enters
into his chest cavity right below the
rib cage. Beneath his heart is small
pump and tubes are connected to
heart. There is a small computer-
ized ‘brain’ that regulates the inter-
nal pump and the brain is powered
by two batteries. The batteries give
approximately ten to twelve hours
of life and are carried in vest. At
night the chest cable is connected
to a larger machine at his house
and plugged into a wall outlet.
“I don’t even notice carrying the
extra hardware around anymore,
it’s been a very easy adjustment.”
he said, “and if I didn’t have the
power supply, my heart stops.”
The pump produces 10,000 rev-
olutions a minute to circulate the
blood at a steady stream. Since the
blood flows at a constant rate
through his system, he no longer
has a blood pressure or a pulse.
Listening to his heart with a
stethoscope, the beating sound is
now replaced by a the soft purr of a
“I do get tired a lot easier now,”
he said, “a normal heart will in-
crease its’ rate to match the
amount of activity being done, but
mine continues at the same rate no
matter if I’m walking or sitting. So,
I’ve had to adjust my pace some.”
Other lifestyle changes have
been minimal. The main change in-
cludes putting the brain and bat-
teries in a waterproof bag to
shower. He can longer be in any
body of water including a tub of
water, hot tub, or swimming. His
diet consists of high fiber and low
sodium, and no alcohol or tobacco.
Along with that, he also takes 20
pills everyday.
Even though the LVAD is doing
the work for his heart, he is able to
maintain a routine schedule, the
life expectancy of living with an
LVAD is only 10 years.
“There is a three percent chance
that my heart will heal itself, so
even though it’s small, there’s al-
ways that hope,” he said, “since the
time I became sick the doctors told
New lease on life thanks to high-tech heart pump
me that there were three times I
should have died, so I’ve used up a
few miracles already.”
Every three months Van Gorp
returns to Mayo Clinic for tests and
to monitor his heart. After a cer-
tain amount of criteria is met, he
can become eligible for a heart
“Just turning 35, the doctors are
not sure what caused me to have
heart problems,” he said, “They be-
lieve that most of it would have to
be genetics, although there is no
heart disease in my father’s family,
my mother was adopted, and we
have no knowledge of any of her
family’s health history so, we may
never be certain. But realistically,
I did myself no favors by smoking
or drinking.”
The goal of being discharged
from the hospital was met on Jan-
uary 29. After spending a month
with his family in Iowa, he re-
turned home to Kadoka on March
“The type of heart attack I had
is often referred to as the “widow
maker” because people do no usu-
ally survive this type of heart at-
tack,” he said, “but it was an
amazing feeling to finally be home,
sleep in my own bed, reconnect
with my friends, see my dog, and
get back to work.
“If it wasn’t for the grace of God
and the skillful doctors, I know I
would not be here today, and even
though each day brings more chal-
lenges than before, I feel like every
day is gift, and that I’m thankful
for,” he concluded with a smile.

Rural Livin’
Never give up on
winter wheat?
“Never” is an extreme term, and
certainly should be reserved for ex-
treme situations. Although winter
wheat is a tough crop and known
for surprising growers and agron-
omists with its resilience, there are
times when abandoning fields are
In the spring of 2013 there was
a great deal of lost sleep over the
decisions to keep winter wheat
fields, destroy them and plant an-
other crop, or interseed a forage
crop to add to the volume of live-
stock feed hoped for at harvest. In
the end, there were many cases of
all three decisions arrived at.
Many of the decisions were heavily
influenced by crop insurance ad-
justments, which provided options.
There is still uncertainty as to
how the fields remaining intact
will turn out at harvest, but the re-
cent moisture has produced dra-
matic improvement in their
appearance and condition. At the
time many fields were adjusted,
the main concerns were plant den-
sity, the uncertainty as to whether
the plants vernalized, and the late-
ness of development.
Plant density is very closely re-
lated to yield, and being somewhat
compensated for as cool, moist con-
ditions have promoted tillering.
Tillering cannot compensate for
large areas with no plants, but the
worst of those fields were the ones
abandoned. Even the winter wheat
that didn’t germinate or emerge
until spring is now beginning to
joint in south-central South
Dakota, which would not occur if it
didn’t vernalize. There may be
plants that did not vernalize,
which should be easy to see in the
near future, if not already as they
will not elongate and produce
nodes or heads. The remaining
concern is the lateness of develop-
ment and maturity. Yields and
test weight will depend heavily on
temperatures and soil moisture as
the crop is flowering and complet-
ing grain fill. Scouting and prop-
erly managing weeds, insects and
diseases according to IPM princi-
ples will be an important factor
that growers have some control

Impl. Special 200
with $500 added
The good news for the week is we
got 1.9” of rain by Wednesday
morning. The yard did get mowed
Monday/Tuesday, so all is good for
a little while. The bad news is now
I am totally frustrated with the lat-
est technology we have, to “eat”
without a fork or napkin! You may
wonder what I am talking about.
Well, it is the need to hook up a
special box to each TV you own or
we don’t get any TV. Personally,
I’m quite contented with about five
channels. As of Wednesday morn-
ing, May 29, my comfort TV was
blank as I padded to the far north
room to catch up on what was going
on in the world. Granted, we are
over kill on TVs, but when we
moved into the house there were a
lot of connections available and be-
cause of getting bigger TVs, we
have good working older ones that
would run VCRs, DVDs and all
those things plus regular TV. Not
any more!
As it sits now, we have three big
old TVs not connected to anything,
As soon as we dispose of even one,
probably we’ll need it. Oh well,
blessings to all the folks who are
even more challenged, at least the
radio still works normal.
Monday as I was on my way to
Philip for the Memorial Day cere-
mony, my phone rang. (I do like cell
phones that work most anywhere.)
Grandson Zack Seager, Cori Bar-
ber and little Ryder and their two
dogs were in the yard at our house,
so back home I went. They had
spent Sunday and Sunday night
visiting at the home of Zack’s dad,
Casey Seager, in Philip, decorating
graves there, and then here in
Kadoka. Bill had already hooked
up the motor home and vehicle and
was on his way to Howes to work,
only to discover the field was too
wet, and it was predicted to get
rained out later in the day, but
that’s another story! Anyway, I en-
joyed a couple of hours of visiting
and playing with Ryder before the
kids needed to be on their way
home to Rapid City so Cori could
work. Time is getting close for a
new addition to the family – a new
little boy is due to make an appear-
ance soon. I continued on to Philip
and did enjoy the potluck lunch
and getting to see so many friends
while there.
Phillis Thorson was especially
happy to see me at the lunch be-
cause she had the secretary’s book
from the Bad River Dance Club she
wanted to pass off to someone, and
that happened to be me. Keith and
Lucille Emerson were at the same
table and enjoyed listening to some
of the secretary reports that I read
a little of. What a history on ball-
room dancing for our little commu-
nity. For 10 glorious years, folks far
and wide enjoyed the dances put on
by the dance club. In the beginning,
there were 70 very active members.
I enjoyed a nice visit with Mary
Kay (Reedy) Sandal before heading
for home. I stopped at the little cof-
fee/smoothie stand that has
cropped up here along Highway 73.
It was interesting to learn that two
40 watt solar panels generate the
power to run the coffee machine
and the smoothie machine. I
mowed until I got rained out and
Bill came home after also getting
rained out at Howes.
Granddaughter Kelsey Gittings
spent the week with George and
Sandee Gittings.
Monday found Tony Harty not
doing much of anything. Tuesday,
he picked up mail and checked out
places he needed to mow. By
Wednesday, he cranked up the
mower and worked at getting some
of the grass knocked down, only to
have to call Marsha Sumpter to
help get one disabled machine
going enough to get it home.
Our rain gauge showed 90/100s
of rain Wednesday morning, and as
Bill and I were on the way home
from breakfast we saw a little yel-
low Cub ready to land. We hurried
to the airport and chatted a bit
with Scott Bauman who was out
looking over the country and
stopped briefly at the airport. The
runway wasn’t too soggy. John
Madsen from Golden West Tele-
phone came and helped get our lit-
tle black boxes attached and
running so we had TV as well as
did a little tweeking of our Internet
connection. After all the above ex-
citement, Bill dug a few worms and
headed to Lake Waggoner to see
how the fish were biting. He caught
some and released them, then
played cards. If they had been bull-
heads we may have had a good sup-
Our sympathy is extended to the
family of Phyllis Kochersberger
Dan and Wendy Shackleton of
Wisconsin spent Wednesday night
at George and Sandee Gittings’.
This is the fourth year they have
come to hunt prairie dogs. Weather
was not cooperating, so they de-
cided to finish their vacation at
Thursday, I had a couple of trips
with the Haakon County Prairie
Transportation van, one to Philip
then to Murdo. While in Philip at
the physical therapy office, Keith
and Lucille Emerson came by need-
ing help with a sort of ingenious
support that Keith sometimes
wears. I helped them figure it out,
along with Edith Slovek, noting
that the brace in the back needed
to be squared away. I wonder if
that brace would help me stand up
straight? Anyway, the purpose is to
afford a little lift to take pressure
off the vertebras in the back and
Keith says it does a good job of
that. Similar to how a neck brace
holds the head up and gives relief.
In Murdo while an appointment
was being taken care of, I visited at
the home of Phyliss and Chip Pe-
ters. Bill took a drive north, all the
way to the fields by Plainview.
Being still too wet, he visited Terry
Buchert on his way to the card
room. Terry was going to work cat-
tle Friday and Bill was going to
help on the four-wheeler, if it didn’t
Sandee Gittings was in the
Kadoka and Belvidere area on
Thursday afternoon with her job
and in the rural Philip area Satur-
day afternoon.
Tony Harty got another mower
up and running Thursday and was
hard at work until that one died.
He called me and this time I
needed a tow rope, but got him
pulled home and Brian Koehn
helped him get it fixed, so he fin-
ished about three yards before call-
ing it a day.
Sandee Gittings had a guy con-
tact her on Facebook with a lot of
information about the C-1 missile
base and a website for Ellsworth.
He had been stationed here from
1981 through 1983 and now has a
bed and breakfast in San Diego,
Calif. The website has information
on all of the Minute Man missile
sites in South Dakota.
Sympathy is extended to the
family of Laura Morgan who
passed away at the age of 102.
Laura was quite a lady and always
looked so nice. We were blessed to
have known her and so many of her
family as well.
“In youth we learn, in age we un-
derstand.” Marie Ebner-Eschen-
Don and Vi returned home to the
ranch Friday around noon. It was
interesting and fun to see the rain
on the way to the ranch, but what
was awesome was to see the irriga-
tion as they approached their
place. Water was flowing from the
west side to the east side and dams
along that system were full and
overflowing. So great!
Kurt Gustafson, Minnesota, who
has spent the last two months
working for the railroad in Philip
and staying with George and
Sandee Gittiings, has taken a new
position elsewhere so he left for
Minnesota Friday after work. He
will probably miss the activities he
enjoyed while at the Gittings.
The rain gauge showed 2/10s of
rain early Friday morning. Terry
Buchert called and canceled the
working of cattle. It rained all day
Friday pretty steady. When Bill
went to Philip for cards he did
some errands around town for me.
Tony Harty had a doctor’s ap-
pointment at the Kadoka Clinic
Friday morning and the poor
nurses needed to draw blood.
You’ve heard the old saying “you
can’t get blood out a turnip,” well,
Tony was like a turnip, they had a
hard time. He went to Philip for a
prescription and other business
then went to Martin to check out
new mowers.
During the weekend, Don and Vi
Moody spent time taking their ATV
around and driving along the top of
the dikes to inspect the water flow.
A breakout occurred just east of
the house, as the water went over
the top of one of the dikes in one
area, but didn't puncture a break in
the structure due to so much pres-
sure that is spread widely where it
ordinarily doesn't flow, but fortu-
nately the water flow did recede
quickly. They checked out all water
on the entire ranch to see if the
dams were filled. Much improve-
ment has been realized - so looking
great. Grass is growing abundantly
and warm sunshine made for a
beautiful ride around the place.
Don and Vi shopped in Philip Sat-
urday afternoon for a brief break
throughout their tours and Vi
bought some moss roses to perk up
their patio. She gave them a dose
of water accidentally that wasn't
meant to be for moss roses. There
is a skunk spray to inhibit the fowl
odor for pets that Vi had found on
the Internet to help the border col-
lie puppies who did get light con-
tact with the "stinky" animals! It is
a mixture of hydrogen peroxide,
dish detergent and baking powder
mixed with a gallon of water to
apply to doggies with a liberal bath
rinse after application, followed up
with a towel dry. Well a bit of that
water was given to the moss roses.
Vi rinsed them as fast as she could
with tap water and they are doing
fairly well so far. Dilution was the
first step Vi could think of. The
water came out through their drain
area a little sudsy yet, but so far so
Saturday, Bill and I took a drive
to Howes and stopped by the motor
home that is parked there in antic-
ipation of Bill getting some field
work done in the near future. We
continued on to Nisland, looking
the country over, on into Belle
Fourche, made a stop in Deadwood
then on home. It was a pleasant
day. The water in Belle Fourche
was just receding from flood high
and the west side of Spearfish had
water spread out. The Belle
Fourche Reservoir was full, so
things are really looking nice for
the start of this year in that area
Sunday after church, Tony Harty
had dinner out then visited at our
place and gave me his news.
Bill and I got the yard mowed
Sunday afternoon after Bill did a
little work on the big mower. So
thankful for the big mower and
Bill’s ability to keep it in good run-
ning order. Phyllis Word stopped
by for a visit in the afternoon.
Rejoice in the renewal of the land
with the rain and the prospect of
the future days ahead.

On May 22, 2013, at Somerset

of fortune with Susan and Sandi.
Thanks for this favorite game. Res-
idents who played were Agnes Tas-
tad, Jim Holmes, Mary Lou Peters,
Irene Arbach, Connie Stevens,
Marilyn Oyler and Vivian Hansen.
Each team won generous Somerset

what are you doing?, singing and
dancing to the music, and January,
February, march of the penguins.

dictionary, que is a word meaning
half a farthing in British currency
and zaim, a Turkish chief.

Thank you to Agnes Tastad who
brought me the Mitchell Daily Re-
public for May 13, 2013, with a ver-
sion of M.R. Hansen’s retirement
from South Dakota School of Mines
and Technology. It mentions that
M.R. is giving his unused sick leave
to establish an endowment fund to
be used to continue research in con-
crete. Colleagues, friends and rela-
tives are contributing, and
thanking M.R. for his generosity.
Lois Pierce, Box Elder, joined
Irene Cox for supper May 22, 2013,
at Somerset Court. Irene plans to
journey to Omaha on May 23 to be
at the 50th wedding anniversary of
her daughter.
The Rapid City Public Library
brought books on May 23. I had
asked for the poem, “The Song of
Hiawatha” by Henry W. Longfel-
low. They brought Frederic Remi-
nington’s illustrated addition “The
Song of Hiawatha.” It includes not
only the whole of Henry W.
Longfellow’s “Song of Hiawatha,”
but Remington’s comments and
387 of his illustrations. An intro-
ductory note by Henry W. Longfel-
low in his journal of June 22, 1854,
says, “I have at length hit upon a
plan for a poem on the American
Indians which seems to me the
right one and the only. It is to
weave together their beautiful tra-
ditions into a whole. I have hit
upon a measure, too, which I think
the right and only one for such a
theme.” (I love the sing-song, story-
telling mood of the poem.)
The Journal’s LA Times cross-
word, May 23, 2013, had the clue,
battleground of David and Goliath,
in four letters. I googled it up and
found it is Elah and there was even
a photo of the valley. Look under
My granddaughter, Doneen

ily’s recent trip to visit her parents,
Don and Delores Denke, Pavillion,

rated a big silver granary with car-
toon characters of Don, Delores,

Friday, May 24, 2013, at Somer-
set Court we had the activity of
blongo. Susan and Sandi kept score
and brought us the balls to throw.
Thank you, girls! Residents who
played were Irene McKnight,
Eileen Tenold, Jim Holmes, Fred
Smith, Addie Rorvig, Marcella
Kraft, Bert Schneider, Mary Lou
Peters, and Marilyn Oyler. Eileen
won the first game and Addie the
second. All received generous Som-
erset bucks for playing.

Rosie Lejeune, Philip. My sympa-
thy to family and friends. Rosie
was the sister of Marie Hansen,
who was my sister-in-law.

The June, 2013, West Central
Electric Cooperative Connections
magazine has an article about
tanka bars. These are health food
bars made with buffalo and cran-
berries with minimal amounts of
sea salt and celery juice. They also
make tanka wild sticks and tanka
dogs. These are being made in Pine
Ridge and shipped all over the
country. It is good to hear of these
locally made products.
Another West Central article, we
note that a big new cheese factory
is underway near Brookings. Their
specialty is Babybel miniature
cheese wheels of which they plan to
make a million a day.
The Pioneer Review for May 24,
2013, arrived Friday and I was
touched by Del Bartels’ column,
“Perfect …for them.”
The Pioneer Review had a notice
that the town of Midland will have
a farmers market starting May 24,
every Friday from 6-8 p.m. They
plan to have live music and supper.
They will have eggs, jewelry, baked
goods, cheese, garden produce,
handcrafted items, and clothing
and plants.
Saturday, May 25, at Somerset
Court, we had exercises at 10 a.m.
and we received bonus Somerset
bucks just for showing up.
My son, Wayne, and wife Gwynn
Hansen came over for lunch and
brought two tiny fried fish, my fa-
vorite! Thank you. They offered to
take me to the Memorial Day pro-
gram at the Black Hills National
Cemetery near Sturgis on Monday,
but I didn’t want to go. Later, my
granddaughter, Sheridan Hansen,
offered to take me to the program,
but I still didn’t want to go.
My son, David Hansen, Ft.
Pierre, sent an email about his re-
cent experiences building a garden
fence for Mark Rilling, Pierre. It
needed to be good and tall, because

When I go up on third floor to
walk laps, it is a good opportunity

Wilma Keene and I both recalled
reading so many of those great old

Mildred Kraemer is up and
about walking laps. It takes perse-
verance to walk with her arm in a

I have been working on a little
quilt. It has five inch square blocks.
Gwynn gave me a box of already
cut blocks and one set had 123 all
alike, so I used every other one of
those alternately with blocks I had
pieced at random. Tonight, I had
the top all together and ironed it. I
used my mother’s old electric iron.
She was using it in 1955, the year
she died. I feel lucky to have this
grand old iron.
M.R. Hansen had been to Philip
May 25 and reported that the
chokecherry bushes are blooming
by my old house near the doorstep.
It makes me lonesome for the old
Sunday, May 26, at Somerset
Court, we had church with Rev.
Richardson. Mrs. Richardson and
their daughter and grandchild
were along. The daughter sang
“Amazing Grace.” Thank you. She
has a lovely voice.
Jack Humke played the piano
and we sang “America the Beauti-
ful,” “Shall We Gather At the
River,” “My Faith Looks Up To
Thee,” “There Shall Be Showers of
Blessing,” “Let Us Break Bread To-
gether,” and several others. Thank
you, Jack.
We missed Rev. Richardson two
weeks ago when he had a hurt
back. His daughter put on some
cream for two days and it did some
good. Their family toured the Black
Hills on Saturday, the 25th, and
marveled at God’s creation.
Some of those old songs re-
minded me of when I was a kid. We
didn’t have a church, but neighbors
would meet at Mark Coleman’s and
sing and have some Bible reading.
That was a Baptist sort of group. I
remember singing, “Shall We
Gather At the River” and “What A
Friend We Have In Jesus.”
Sometimes, a minister would
come to Grindstone Hall from Cot-
tonwood, and that would be a Con-
greational group. (The same bunch
of neighbors.) About six miles
northeast from our place was a
Catholic church with resident
priest. Josephine and Martin Han-
nigan looked after the church and
priest. There was also a church at
Hilland, maybe 10 miles northeast.
That would be a Lutheran group.
May 26, 2013, we had a good
treat for lunch, acorn squash! The
roast pork was tender. We had
doughnuts and apple pie. It even
rained a little. Maybe quenched the
dump fire.
Monday, May 27, 2013, at Som-
erset Court, we celebrated Memo-
rial Day with a picnic dinner
served in the dining room. We had
planned to have it in the courtyard,
but instead, we had a nice little
shower. Even a little hail. We are
thankful for the rain. The dinner
was fine, hot dogs, hamburgers,
baked beans, potato salad, chips,
drinks of your choice, (even beer)
and ice cream in waffle cones with
nuts and chocolate.
Quite a few residents had gone
out to be with friends or relatives
and quite a few residents had com-
pany, so it evened out nicely. Sheri-
dan, Tiger and Cecelia, my
granddaughter and her children,
came over for dinner and stayed to
play a while. Thank you for your
visit. They played ball up and down
the long, wide hall, and hid out
under the bed and in the clothes
closet, with imaginative stories to
explain their reasoning.
I started reading Yann Partel’s
“The Life of Pi.” Some of it sounds
very logical, and the author seems
to know much about the personali-
ties of zoo animals, as in the early
part of the story, his father ran a
zoo in India. I don’t want to tell you
too much, you might want to read
the book or see the movie!
Addie Rorvig and I successfully
completed the Rapid City Journal’s
Monday soduku. so we are hoping
to do Tuesday’s as well. We are
ready to open the game of mancala
(it is a two-player game). Wanda
and Ed brought it for my birthday.
We now have a ziplock bag to put
the playing pieces in. These pieces
are in various colors. The color has
no significance. It is a system of
placing the playing pieces (they are
like little squashed marbles) in cer-
tain grooves. At the end of the
board are bigger hollows called
mancalas, where players store
their accumulated pieces.
Tuesday, May 28, 2013, bingo at
Somerset Court, winners were
Anne Brink, Irene Arbach, Annetta
Hansen, Connie Stevens (twice,
one was the blackout), Marge Self
(twice), and Agnes Tastad. After
bingo we had the Somerset Court
birthday bash and sang the birth-
day song for Alma Gruenig, Jerry
McCue, Sara Lee Stark, Violet
Jenison, Ina Oerlline, Anne Brink,
Shirley Hodgman, and Nellie
Morse. Somerset Court Chef
Amber made a wonderful cake dec-
orated in mostly green. People said
that it was excellent. I took a photo.
The cake was served with vanilla
ice cream, hot coffee, and ice water.
My niece, Wanda Artz, Hum-
boldt, sent a good letter telling of
the things in bloom there. Of lilacs,
white and purple, and rosy pink
crabapple blossoms, she cut twigs
for bouquets for the house. She has
planted many other flowers and
some vegetables. She and Ed have
had asparagus and rhubarb from
their own garden. She mentioned
that they have received their copy
of Ruby Gabriel’s book and found it
Carol Nielson visited her mother,
Mildred Young, a Somerset Court
resident, May 28, 2013.
Thank you to my daughter, Carol
and Al Vogan for the June 2013
issue of the Smithsonian magazine
which arrived on May 28. You may
borrow my copy.
Wednesday, May 29, 2013, I be-
lieve the lunch bunch out went to a
fish restaurant. Bible study was
held that day as usual at Somerset.
Whist was played with a foursome
including Irene Arbach, Irene Cox,
Floy Olson and Susan.
Mildred Kraemer went to the
doctor to get her arm looked at. She
has a big pink cast and would have
let us sign it, but an ordinary pen
or felt tip marker wouldn’t write on
My granddaughter, Sheridan
Hansen, came for scrabble and she
ended up with a score of over 300!
At lunch we were seated with Bert
Schneider. We had a pleasant visit.
Sheridan invited me to go along
with her to church on June 2. That
would be the Baptist church over
by the mall.
We saw the obituary for Rita
(O’Connor) Narcisian, Golden,
Colo., and formerly of Philip, in the
May 28, 2013 Rapid City Journal.
My sympathy to family and
friends. A memorial has been es-
tablished to the Haakon County
Prairie Transportation.
The May 29, 2013 Rapid City
Journal had the obituary of Laura
Morgan, age 102, of Philip. My
sympathy to family and friends.
Also in that same paper was the
obituary of James “Jimmie” Dean,
Rapid City, formerly of Philip and
my old Grindstone neighborhood.
My sympathy to family and
friends. The Dean family were are
near neighbors. Everyone loved
Jimmie and he played drums for
It rained and streams of muddy
water ran down the raw hillside
south of the Somerset Court build-
ing making a puddle in the low
spots. Belvidere had a foot of hail
May 28!
My son, Wayne, came over for
lunch and brought some of his little
fresh caught fish. They are so good.
Thank you. My son, Marion, came
for lunch and stayed for scrabble.
Thank you for your visit.
The Thursday, May 30, 2013,
Rapid City Journal had a list of
good fishing places. Some men-
tioned were Orman Dam for wall-
eye, Pactola Reservoir for bluegill
and crappie, in the shallows and
some rainbow trout, in the deeps.
New Underwood Dam has catfish
and Lake Waggoner at Philip was
mentioned for bass. Locals do not
especially appreciate that newspa-
per column.
Somerset Court resident, Mar-
cella Kraft’s son, John, is gone to
visit relatives in Idaho.
A bunch of us played rummi-
cube after snack and chat, those
being Mary Lou Peters, Margaret
Jacobs, Irene Cox and Vivian
Hansen. At another table, Shawn,
Sandi, Addie Rorvig, Lucille
Huether and Shirley Hessman
played five crowns.
I walked around outside of the
Somerset Court building. It was
nice on the east side, otherwise,
sort of windy. There are pools of
water on the south side from yes-
terday’s rain, it was said to be over
two inches. In fact, four inches
were claimed in an area up on
Catron Boulevard.
We received the new June 2013
Somerset Court schedule and there
are many events slated for June. I
saw on item that I wondered about.
On June 14, Flag Day, it says
stache bash. I better look into that.
Sharon Keen’s daughter, Sarah,
was running in a marathon this
weekend for the benefit of the
Boston Marathon victims. Power to
her and the “Foxy Dinos.”
The May 30, 2013, Philip Pioneer
Review arrived on May 31. Philip
carried out the traditional program
for Memorial Day with the saluting
of the war dead, the 21-gun salute
and “Taps.” The program continued
at the American Legion Post #173
with our old friend, Ramsey
Kendall, formerly of Philip giving
the memorial address at the Me-
morial Day services. It was lovely
that the Haakon County Crooners
sang at the Black Hills National
Cemetery’s Memorial Day services.
They sang the “Star Spangled Ban-
ner,” and other patriotic and com-
memorative music.

Coyle, formerly of Philip is a prin-
ciple in the Central School District
in more, Okla. Marcia West, presi-
dent of the Philip Retired Teachers

Getting into trouble is easy. Admitting our sins and
making amends Ior them is the hard part. It`s much
easier to shove what you have done under the rug
and Iorget about it. Beware oI this tactic: 'Your sin
will Iind you out¨ and the guilt will eat away at you.
But if ye will not do so, behold, ye have sinned against
the LORD. and be sure your sin will find you out.

May Mednansky, age 91 of
White River, S.D., died Thursday,
May 30, 2013, at the Maryhouse in
Juanita “May” Shouldis Med-
nansky was born to Charles and
Mary A. (Atkins) Shouldis, Decem-
ber 12, 1921, in Mellette County.
May married Clarence Mednan-
sky in Valentine, Neb., September
16, 1940. Three children were born
to this union: Audrey (Ed) Bur-
nette, Pierre, Rodney (Oleta) Med-
nansky and Janice Ellis, White
River. From there the family grew
to include grandchildren, Angela
(David) Aud, Great Mills, Md., Guy
(Michele) Burnette, California,
Md., Sonya (Josh) Feaster, Tucson,
Ariz., Justin (Dena) Mednansky,
Richard Mednansky and Duane
Mednansky, White River, Chad
(Margarita) Ellis, Mexico, and Tri-
cia Shedeed, Otter Tail, Minn.;
great-grandchildren, Joey, Brandy,
Bailey, Sage, Taylor, Sharissa,
Ashton, Logan, Justin, Kade,
Alexandra, Michelle, Nathan, Lau-
ren, Kaise, Adam, Matthew, James
and Alana; and proud to have Nova
Maylynn as her great-great-grand-
May barely answered to being
called Juanita but loved being
called Mom, Grandma, Grandma
Great, Aunt or Auntie May. May
sometimes spelled with an “e”,
sometimes with a “y”, just to keep
us on our toes. When asked about
doing something here lately, her
come back would be, “Well, I’m
ONLY 91!” She loved her family
and friends, going to the grandkids’
programs, concerts and games. She
loved seeing the sun and moon rise
and set, working with the livestock,
admiring the birds and flowers and
all that nature provided.
May was a sweet, hardworking,
quiet country girl. She worked side
by side with Clarence on the farm/
ranch as well as maintaining the
house and preparing the greatest
meals. The farm was a vacation
spot to many nieces and nephews
growing up and later to her grand-
children. Moving from “home” to
town was a big adjustment for both
May and Clarence.
After moving to town, she en-
joyed bird watching and neighbor
watching! She knew what every
bird was and what every neighbor
was doing. She was looking for-
ward to sitting on her new deck
this summer and had plans for
flowers she would be able to enjoy
as she soaked up the sunshine.
May loved playing canasta,
solitare, embroidering and crochet-
ing. May embroidered towels that
are raffled off at the Mednansky
family reunion and has them ready
for this year!
May was an active and proud
member of the Cottownwood
Ladies Aide and so enjoyed her
monthly outing. She often took a
quarter rather than a dime for
lunch – the big spender she was!
May came home full of news and
reported on what lunch consisted of
and, of course, wasn't really hungry
for supper that night.
May fought a courageous battle
but was overcome by kidney and
congestive heart failure. She was
one tough, brave woman to the end!
May was preceded in death by
her husband, Clarence, her parents
and her brothers and sisters, as
well as many special Shouldis and
Mednansky in-laws.
Services were held Tuesday,
June 4, at the White River Commu-
nity Events Center with Pastor
Craig Marshall officiating.
Music was provided by Linda
Blom with special music by great-
grandson, Sage Mednansky.
Guest book attendants were
Barb “Susie” Ketel and Michelle
Whitted. Ushers were Charles
“Pete” Shouldis and Bill Sinclair.
Pallbearers were Justin, Richard
and Duane Mednansky, Bruce
Boyd, Kevin Kusick and Dale
“Bobby” Wooden Knife. Honorary
pallbearers were the Cottonwood
Ladies Aide members and all of
May’s family and friends.
Interment was in the White
River Cemetery.

Arrangements were with the
Rush Funeral Home of Philip.

able at www.rushfuneralhome.com

Linda Kramer, age 67, of Philip,
S.D., died April 6, 2013, at St.
Joseph Hospital in Tucson, Ariz.
Linda Lee Long was born Sep-
tember 25, 1945, to Orville (Tim)
and Mathilda (Tillie) Long. She
was raised on the family farm near
Philip. She was baptized and con-
firmed at Philip's Our Redeemer
Lutheran Church. As a young girl,
she looked forward to finishing her
daily chores so she could spend
time with her sister, Sally, swim in
the stock dams, fish, and visit her
many cousins. After graduating
from Philip High School, she at-
tended the American Business Col-
lege in Rapid City and earned a
degree in business administration.
She married John (Jack) Still in
1967, who passed away in a plane
crash in 1968.
In June 1970, she married
Danny Kramer in Davenport, Iowa.
During their careers, they had the
opportunity to reside in a number
of states, including Illinois, Iowa,
Michigan, Washington and Califor-
nia. During her career, Linda
achieved significant success in both
the banking and mortgage indus-
tries. Following retirement, Linda
and Danny moved from Moorpark,
Calif., to Burlington, Iowa. In 2007,
they purchased a motor home so

Midland News
While sitting at my computer
this Monday morning and looking
out our window to the north, the
sky is overcast, the wind is blow-
ing, and the grass is green. Our of-
fice is on the lower level of our
split-level home giving me a good
view of that green grass. I enjoy
having our office on the lower level
and often- times when writing my
new’s column, I take a little break
and just sit and look out that win-
dow to the north. I find it calming
and relaxing, unless of course,
there are storm clouds in that sky,
such as there were when closing
my column last week. It then be-
comes a whole different story. No
calm and no relaxing! Isn’t this
moisture wonderful? Oh, how good
it is to see the country so green.
Jerry and I were at Canistota for
treatments at the Ortman Clinic
last week. Talk about moisture,
they have moisture! The land is flat
in that area and with all of that
rain there are little lakes in their
corn fields. But, where it isn’t cov-
ered with water the corn is really
taking off. When we got home there
was an inch and a half in our rain
gauge. That is a good thing! And
with all of those rains, some dams
are filling with water from Mother
Nature. It was not that long ago
that farmers and ranchers were
feeling a bit down, as they looked
out on the parched land and dry
dams. This is not new to farmers
and ranchers, they’ve been there
before. And those times, when
those rains do come, spirits are
lifted and folks are just so very
thankful for that moisture. And the
trees, they are thankful for this
rain, as well, giving us a showcase
of rich, green, colored leaves. For
me, there is just something calm-
ing about seeing ducks happily
floating along on those dams full of
clear, blue, water. Whoa, guess I’d
better get myself going on the news
for this week!
Coming to the home of Clint and
Prerry Saucerman for the Memo-
rial Day weekend was their son, Ty
and Emily Saucerman, Ben and
Rebeckah, Aurora, Colo. They got
there late Friday night. Saturday,
Clint, Prerry, Ty, Emily, Ben and
Rebeckah met up with Tel and
Ellie Saucerman and family, Rapid
City, Beth Hand and family,
Pierre, Stacy Nemec, Pierre, and
Mark and Glenda Nemec, Hill City,
(who were camping at a camp-
ground nearby) at 1880 Town
where they all had lunch at the
diner and then toured the town.
Everyone had a great time and the
kids got in on some good games of
checkers at the Long Horn Saloon.
Now remember folks, the strongest
drink you can get at that saloon is
a sarsaparilla, as it is what you call
a family friendly saloon. Sunday
morning, Sheri Wiechmann,
Pierre, came to see her mom,
Wilma Saucerman, and everyone
else at the Saucerman home. Pre-
rry, Ty, Emily and kids went to
church. After lunch, Ty and family
went to see his grandpa, Gaylord
Saucerman, at the Philip Nursing
Home and his grandmother, Mar-
lin Evans, and Alaetra Evans at
the Senechal apartments in Philip.
This past Friday, Prerry and
Wilma went to Philip. Wilma vis-
ited her husband, Gaylord, at the
nursing home while Prerry got var-
ious things for the 100th celebra-
tion of Trinity Lutheran Church.
She also visited her mom, Marlin
Evans, at the Senechal.
Saturday, Tel Saucerman,
Sawyer and Meleah, came from
Rapid City for the 100th anniver-
sary celebration at Trinity
Lutheran Church. They spent the
afternoon and had supper at his
folks, Clint and Prerry’s, before
heading back home. Marlin was
also at the celebration. Sunday,
Wilma and Prerry went to the
shower for Addalyn Vollmer,
daughter of Dustin and C.J.
Vollmer, held at Trinity Lutheran
Friday, May 17, Paula Jones,
Rapid City, arrived at the home of
her parents, Gene and Audrey
Jones. Saturday, the three of them
traveled to Wagner to their daugh-
ter, Lisa and Matt Foley's home
where they met up with their
daughter, Linda and Brandan Gilt-
ner, Triston and Taylor, Meriden,
Kan., and son, Rich Jones,
Cochran, Ga., and Lisa's children
and friends. Sunday, they attended
Mass in Dante on their way to Scot-
land to attend the high school grad-
uation of Lisa's daughter,
Samantha JoAnn. Following grad-
uation and the party, all returned
to their homes, as Monday's work
called them home.
Rich drove to Midland to be
with his parents, Gene and Audrey,
and to visit friends and relatives.
Thursday night, Gene and Audrey
and Rich Jones traveled to Rapid
City to visit Jer and Julie Whitcher
and attended Paula's softball
games. They spent the night and
returned home Friday. Friday,
Tony and LaVon Nemec, Gillette,
Wyo., arrived to spend the week-
end with the Joneses and to be
with the Olesen family during the
weekend. Saturday, Rich visited at
the Edna and Roger Dale home, en-
joying supper there. Sunday,
grandson Dackery Geiman, Rapid
City, stopped in on his way home
from a cousin's wedding. All at-
tended the get-together at Ron and
Shirley Doud's and visited with the
Olesen families. Rich was spending
a few more days visiting before re-
turning home.
Last week included a lot of ac-
tivity at the Morris Jones’ ranch.
Friends, neighbors and family
gathered to brand the spring calves
Tuesday. Daughter Jill Sheldon,
Mallory, Mya and Doug, Mandan,
N.D., and Pat Jones, Monica and
Piper, Wessington Springs, and Jo-
hannes Gimbel, Ree Heights, came
and stayed overnight to help out
and be a part of the big day. The
work began at Jeff Joneses place
and commenced south of town at
Morrie’s ranch. The work was done
by 1:00 with everyone staying to
visit and eat a meal prepared by
Barb, Jen Jones and Jennifer Jones
held at Barb and Morrie’s place.
Reuben and Pat Vollmer and
Linda and Kaitlyn Schofield at-
tended Elizabeth Schofield’s dance
recital in Pierre Saturday evening.
Elizabeth is the daughter of Steven
and Bridget Schofield and the
granddaughter of Reuben and Pat
and Terry Lee and Linda. It was
little ones through high school girls
and boys. Reports are it was very
It was a busy weekend at Mid-
land with Trinity Lutheran Church
celebrating their 100th anniver-
sary, Saturday, June 1, 2013.
Everyone was welcomed by Prerry
Saucerman and Pastor Frezil
Westerlund. Pastor Tel Saucerman
was there and told of his memories
of serving at Trinity Lutheran from
2000-2006 as pulpit supply. Rev-
erend Martin Osterloh and his wife
were there, he was pastor at the
church from 1993-1998 and told of
his memories. Robert Henriksen
served as interim from 1991-1993,
has passed away, but his wife was
there and shared their memories,
and Rev. Paul Bly served from
2000-2004. He and his wife and
family were there and he talked of
his memories of being at Trinity
Lutheran. Being famous for his Ole
and Lena stories, he shared one of
them. Letters were read from some
of the former pastors who could not
be there. Pastor Frezil shared her
memories of coming to South
Dakota and the joy of serving at
Trinity Lutheran, Deep Creek and
other churches in this area. Ole
(Jessie Root) and Lena (Gaynold
Willoughby) put on an entertaining
Ole and Lena skit. You can’t be a
Norwwegian Lutheran and not
know who Ole and Lena is, now can
you? They did a great job! Scotti
Block’s piano students played some
special songs and the Sunday
school kids sang special songs, as
well. The history over the past 100
years was read by Carol Hunt.
Wilma Saucerman made a special
banner for the 100th celebration
and June Fedderson made the spe-
cial cake. Former Midland resi-
dents, Ivan and Miriam Schilling,
came from Gillette, Wyo., and Judy
Daly brought her mom, Marie An-
derson, from the Silverleaf As-
sisted Living Center of Philip.
Times such as this, brings those
memories of folks who were such a
part of the church and the commu-
nity. A potluck dinner and a time
of visiting followed the church serv-
Sunday, June 2, Larry and Glo-
ria Lundstrom of Larry Lundstrom
Ministries in Sisseton, was in Mid-
land for a time of Christian fellow-
ship at the Midland City Park.
They had been invited by Pastor
Andy Blye of the Open Bible
Church. It was a beautiful night, a
night filled with song, praise, and
humor as they shared their min-
istry with all who were there. Each
song they sing has a meaningful
message of God’s love for each and
everyone of us. A message that fills
your heart with hope! They are ex-
cited as they are busy making
plans for a fun and fellowship tour
to Branson, Mo., “Christmas in
Branson.” The tour is tentatively
set for December 3-9, 2013. Thank
you, Pastor Andy, for a special
evening! And thanks to city worker
Lawrence Stroppel for having the
park nicely mowed. With the recent
rains, the park looks so good! Some
folks driving through Midland had
stopped at the park for a little
break from road driving. I hap-
pened by when they were there and
the lady talked of what a beautiful
park we have with clean restrooms,
as well. That’s nice to hear!

Midland Senior Citizens
The Midland Senior Citizens
met at the senior center June 3,
2013, with nine members present.
President Kandus Woitte called the
meeting to order and led the flag
salute. The minutes of the May
meeting were read and approved.
The treasurer’s report was given.
Moved to approve the report, mo-
tion to accept and it was approved.
No cards were sent. The bulletin
board was done. George Stroppel
mowed the yard. For old business,
we sold our old gas tank and we re-
ceived a grant from the Commu-
nity Development Foundation. The
senior potluck will be on June 14.
We discussed having penny bingo.
We will try it on the second Mon-
day of each month at 7:00 p.m.
starting June 10. Bring finger food
for lunch. Ruby Huston moved to
have it and Beth Flom seconded.
The motion carried. Meeting ad-
Secretary Mickey Woitte
Sitting at my computer and
looking out my window to the north
this Tuesday morning the sky is a
soft blue with a few puffy white
clouds here and there, the sun is
shining, a breeze is blowing and
the temperature is 58˚. Now it just
doesn’t get any better then that, do
you think? I do enjoy mornings
such as this! Jerry wants to spray
the weeds on our lots to the north
and across the alley on our lots to
the west. But, feels it’s a bit too
windy for that today so is waiting
for a better time. He was mowing
those weeds the other day and de-
cided it was time to get out the
sprayer. Weeds do have a strong
growth spurt and if you don’t get on
top of it you are busy, busy, with
the mowing of those weeds. Speak-
ing of mowing, with the rains we’ve
had the sounds of mowing are
every where in this little town of
Midland. Our neighbors to the
south, Tyler and Angel Nemec,
have started putting in lawn
around their new house. They have
a huge yard so are doing parts of it
at a time, so it doesn’t become over-
whelming. Sounds like a good plan
to me. Their daughter, Emry Jo, is
at that fun age and gives a wave
and a ‘hi’ when you walk past their
house. She’s a cutie!
The following was from Maxine
Jones: Don and Nancy Smith,
Bellevue, Neb., came to her par-
ents’ home for the Memorial Day
weekend and spent the following
week getting in some time helping
family members with spring work,
including babysitting for her grand
niece, Jordyn Jones, helping Jor-
dyn's parents, Matthew and Bri,
build their corrals and barn, mow-
ing yards, repairs, branding, and
more. They also got in some visit-
ing with other family and friends,
some 'tourist' activities with a drive
through the Black Hills and a visit
to friends, John and Shelley Iver-
son, who moved from the Omaha
area to Spearfish last year. Iver-
son’s twins, Grace and Eli, at-
tended School of Mines at Rapid
City last year and Shelley grew up
near Ludlow, so they have strong
family ties to South Dakota. John
and Shelley came to the Jones
ranch Memorial Day afternoon and
enjoyed a ranch tour with Shorty
and Maxine and Don and Nancy. It
was very pretty to see all the new
green grass, and sad to not see one
of the favorite of the Longhorn
steers, later found to have fallen
into a steep part of a dam and
drowned, or possibly been struck
by lightning. Several people
wanted the hide from the very dis-
tinctly patterned black and white
animal, as well as it's huge horns,
all spoiled by the water.
Maxine Jones and the Smiths
went to 1880 Town for lunch one
day and visited a bit with grand-
daughter and niece, Lexi Jones,
who is working at the Diner this
summer. Lexi plans to return to
Spearfish to finish her college this
fall, after spending the past school
year at the Black Hills State Uni-
versity campus in Rapid City.
The first branding at the Jones'
Hi-way #63 barn got rained out
after hiefers' calves were branded,
but the crew was able to shelter in
the barn to eat the delicious New
Mexico style brisket sandwiches,
various salads, peach cobbler pre-
pared by Bryers' friend, Kaycee
McDaniel, from Sioux Falls, and
Lexi Jones and others. Maxine and
Smiths went to Kadoka to pick up
some meat in the afternoon, notic-
ing the rain was considerably heav-
ier from 1880 Town all the way to
Kadoka, with lots of water run-
ning. Belvidere Dam has run over
ever since last Wednesday, after
their big hail storm earlier that
The second round of branding at
Shorty Jones' took place Monday,
and at the Indian Creek ranch
Tuesday, with large crews on hand
to help. Gerald Stricker and son
Tigh, Kiowa, Kan., came and spent
a couple of nights. Ross Jones came
from Rapid City, and many local
friends and neighbors also helped.
Nick and Sandy Feller, Jana Jones
parents from Wall, came to help,
too. Karley Block was the youngest
rider, about four years old, riding
her own horse. Jordyn Jones, age
one year, rides, but has to be with
her mother. Cass Finn, who just
finished second grade, was the best
at getting on his horse, considering
that his stirrups are above his head
to begin the chore! And he was the
only one to get bucked off his horse,
after roping a calf and getting the
rope under his horses' tail, causing
a bucking episode ending with one
cowboy on the ground, but he
jumped right up with a smile on his
face! Someone caught his horse,
and he went on with the business
of the day. No damage, no penalty!
A good guess is that another cow-
boy at the branding, Branden
West, took note of a future bronc
rider for the matched bronc ride
It’s time to close my column for
another week and as I do I would
like to share a part of a book I just
finished reading, “What Matters
Most” by Luanne Rice. A young
man, who, as a baby was left with
the nuns at St. Augustine’s Chil-
dren’s Home, shared the following
with his birth mother after they
found each other when he was
grown, a young man. He tells, “Be
ready for the gift you least expect.
Every day. It’s the only way to
live.” It tells he was talking about
faith: belief in light of the absence
of proof, enlightenment received
through prayer, and that which is
seen and unseen. I recommend
reading that book. It was an excel-
lent book on life with its challenges
and its joys.
The rains received recently have
been a gift, to be sure, and though
each of us knows we are going to
need more rain down the road, for
now, we are thankful for the rains
we have received making the lands
a beautiful shade of green. Have a
good day and a good week!

Flag Day is June 14. National
Flag week is the week in which flag
day occurs. Why June 14? That is
the day in 1777 when the Stars and
Stripes was officially adopted as the
flag of the United States. In 1885, a
Wisconsin school teacher organized
his students to observe the flag’s
birthday. It wasn’t until 1916 that
President Woodrow Wilson pro-
claimed June 14 as Flag Day. Pres-
ident Harry S Truman signed an
Act of Congress on August 3, 1949
that designated June 14 as Na-
tional Flag Day.
Unfortunately we don’t see many
flags being flown on this day. As a
kid, I remember all the businesses
in downtown, Newell, as well as
some homes, and surrounding com-
munities proudly flying their flags.
Flag etiquette: Raise the flag
briskly. Lower it ceremoniously.
The flag can only be flown at night
if properly illuminated. Otherwise,
it should only be flown from sunrise
to sunset. The flag should always be
allowed to fall free. The flag should
never be used to carry, store, or de-
liver anything. Never fly the flag
upside down except to signal an
emergency. Never allow the flag to
touch the ground or floor.
When hung over a sidewalk on a
rope extending from a building, the
stars are always away from the
When the flag is hung over a
street running east to west, the
stars are always toward the north.
When the flag is hung over a street
running north to south, the stars
are always toward the east.
When a group of flags is being
displayed, the U.S. flag should be at
the center and at the highest point.
The only exception is when the flag
of another nation is being flown—
national flags should be of the same
size and fly at the same height.
When covering a casket, the stars
should be at the head and over the
left shoulder. The flag should never
touch the ground or be lowered into
the grave.
When on a speaker's podium, the
flag should be either above and be-
hind the speaker, or to the
speaker's right as he faces the au-
When displayed either horizon-
tally or vertically against a wall,
the union (blue field) should be up-
permost and to the flag's right, that
is, the observer's left.
In a window, or suspended above
a corridor, the flag should hang
with the union on the viewer's left.
When the flag is displayed
against a wall with another flag
from crossed staffs, the U.S. flag
should be on the right (facing the
audience) and its staff should be on
top of the other flags.
When the flag is carried in pro-
cession with other flags, it should
be either on the right of the line of
flags, or in front of the center of the
On floats, the flag should be dis-
played on a staff.
The flag should not be draped
over a car, train, or boat. When dis-
played with a car, the flag's staff
should be attached to the right
fender, or the chassis.
The flag should be held upright
and should not be dipped to any
person or thing.
The flag should never be used as
clothing, bedding, or drapery.
The flag should not appear on
napkins, boxes, or other disposable
items, nor should it be embroidered
on cushions, handker- chiefs, or
similar objects.

Lundstrom’s Soul Winning
Rally in Midland City Park
Larry and Gloria Lundstom were in concert at the Midland City Park, Sunday, June
2. The free event was open to the public. “It was a great time and we had a won-
derful turnout,” stated Pastor Andy Blye. Beginning at 6:00 p.m., the “Soul Win-
ning Rally,” a revival type show, was performed by the Larry Lundstrum Ministries,
based out of Sisseton. In 1982, after 17 years as part of the Lundstom Evangel-
istic Team, Larry, Gloria and their children branched off from their partners, Lowell
and Connie Lundstrom, to start their ministries. They have sung and preached
across Canada and the United States. Their three children grew up and left to
pursue their own careers, yet Larry and Gloria are still continuing their soul win-
ning vision. Courtesy photo
Greetings from partly sunny,
breezy, lush northeast Haakon
County. It certainly is amazing
what Mother Nature can do – just
add some moisture, and this area
comes alive!
Unfortunately, there isn't going
to be much news in this column. I
have been gone for nine days, and
I arrived home at about midnight
last night. There has been no time
to collect news from the neighbor-
hood, so hopefully next week I'll be
able to get caught up on the com-
munity happenings.
I did have a message from
Dorothy Paulson. She said that on
Thursday, May 23, their niece and
husband, Julie and Greg Mittleter,
Gackle, N.D., arrived. They went to
Rapid City and toured the Black
Hills Friday. Saturday, May 25,
the Paulsons branded calves and
worked cows, and their niece and
nephew were back to help with
that process. After branding was
done, Nels and Dorothy, as well as
Julie and Greg, traveled to Murdo
and put flowers on graves. Julie
and Greg left for their home in
North Dakota, and Nels and
Dorothy returned to the ranch.
Dorothy said there was no church
service at Deep Creek Sunday,
June 2.
Lola Roseth said that the Mid-
land ambulance and fire hosted an
EMT training last Wednesday with
Kadoka ambulance and Hayes first
responders participating. Sunday,
Duane and Lola Roseth and Larry
and Linda Smith went to Dead-
wood. Duane and Lola's son-in-law,
John Gerlach, ran the half
marathon, and the Roseths and
Smiths were at the finish line to
congratulate him. While they were
in the Black Hills, Duane and
Larry got to do a little fly fishing –
I didn't hear if they had good luck
or not.
Other than those news tidbits,
the only news I know about is my
own! I flew to Washington, D.C., on
May 26 to spend some time with
our daughter, Lori. We spent Me-
morial Day at a jazz concert in a
park in Old Town Alexandria, Va.,
on the banks of the Potomac. It was
a beautiful day, and the music was
fantastic! The Old Town area is
home to so many historic sites, and
it is a fun place to visit. Lori had
surgery to repair a tendon in her
foot on May 29, so I got to spend
several days helping her as she re-
covered. I had originally planned to
come back to South Dakota on June
1, but I extended my trip and came
back the afternoon of the 3. Since I
was there over the weekend, Lori
and I had the opportunity to have
brunch with several of her friends
and their mothers on Saturday, and
Sunday we toured the National
Cathedral. Thank goodness the
cathedral has wheel chairs avail-
able, because it wouldn't have been
possible for Lori to do the tour on
her crutches. We were fortunate to
take a special tour that gave the
history of the needlepoint in the
church. There are over 1,500 indi-
vidual pieces of needlepoint, and
every piece is done to very exacting
standards – it was fascinating. As a
bonus, the children's choir was re-
hearsing while we were there,
which was also awesome. The
cathedral is undergoing some re-
pair work to take care of damage
caused by the D.C. earthquake in
2011. I know it is a site I will be vis-
iting again! Lori had an appoint-
ment with her surgeon before I
returned home Monday, and he was
pleased with her recovery so far –
good news!
Happy belated birthday to my
husband, Randy! I wasn't here to
celebrate with him, but now that I
am home I'll make it up to him.
This week, I am grateful for so
many things – moisture, sunshine,
airplanes, our quiet country home –
I could go on and on. Life is good!
Right now, I need to continue
with all the projects around here.

Philip area athletes ran the dif-

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 summer
months, many of us enjoy roasting
marshmallows and hotdogs over an
open campfire, and lighting fire-
works 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 con-
cerned about fire season with the
spread of the pine beetle epidemic
in the Black Hills. Trees infested
by pine beetles are especially sus-
ceptible to fires, which can move
quickly, putting life and property
in danger.
Earlier this year, in an effort to
help combat forest fires, I sent a
letter to chief of the United States
Forest Service, Tom Tidwell, en-
couraging the agency to consider
the use of the Air Force’s soon to be
retired C-27J aircraft to fight wild-
land fires in the Rocky Mountain
region. Not only would the aircraft
help provide the Forest Service
with the tools needed to fight wild-
land fires, but the operation of
these aircraft could also provide
multiple benefits to our economy if
stationed at Ellsworth Air Force
Base. I have also introduced legis-
lation to cut red tape and prioritize
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 pre-
serve and protect some of our coun-
try’s greatest national treasures
and the lives and personal property
of our neighbors.
Doing our part to prevent
South Dakota wildland fires
Clark Martinek’s love for iron
working began at age 15 when he
took high school welding classes.
“I loved it. I thought it was exotic
to work with metal.” It was a natu-
ral progression from welder to arti-
san blacksmith for Clark. He had a
certain love for metal and in a
sense it seemed to love him back.
During his many travels Mar-
tinek landed in Arizona it was
there he discovered well known
artist blacksmith, Peter Sevin.
Martinek paid him a visit and a
friendship and mentor-ship devel-
“Over time I moved my equip-
ment and set up shop next to him
to fully absorb all I could from this
master smith. Pete showed me iron
craftsmanship has no end and you
will forever be learning.”
Two years ago, Martinek, his
wife, and young son decided to re-
turn to Mitchell to be closer to fam-
ily. After museum director Lori
Holmberg contracted with Clark
for a museum project, she visited
him at his studio and discovered
his artistic side. The walls are
neatly covered with his numerous
handmade tools and detailed sculp-
tures. Iron inspirations fill the
space, oddly intermixed with beau-
tiful sketches Martinek has drawn.
“After seeing the pieces he cre-
ates I realized he’s an artist as
well,” said Holmberg. “Clark can
look at a piece of iron and can envi-
sion a scorpion, a twining vine or
some other beautiful object.”
The sketches are his map work
for in his artistic process. “These
drawings are necessary because I
need to know what it will look like
before I make it.”
The exhibition will feature works
Clark has created, from early tool-
ing and functional hinges to mod-
ern abstract sculptures.
“I eat, breath and sleep black-

Golden West Telecommunications is in the process of burying fiber to approxi-
mately 236 subscribers in the rural Philip and a small portion of Milesville phone
exchanges. Fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) is much faster than conventional wire/coax,
because it uses light instead of electricity to send information. For example, a
single copper pair conductor can carry six phone calls. A single fiber pair can
carry more than 2.5 million phone calls simultaneously. It does require the in-
stallation of new transmission, wiring and receiving infrastructure. Vantage Point
Engineering, Mitchell, is doing the field engineering for the new fiber system. They
are taking measurements and mapping routes for the new buried fiber. Golden
West and Vantage Point Engineering workers will be wearing Golden West photo
identification badges. The FTTH upgrade will require a wireless device to be
placed in the homes of customers; a two-foot-by-two-foot panel that looks much
like any electronic panel in homes. When customers switch over to fiber optics,
they will lose their signal for only a few minutes. The project in the rural Philip
and Milesville exchanges should be completed by October. Shown above is the
crew making initial connection at the alleyway intersection behind Ace Hardware.

At age 95, Rich Smith helped raise to the level of Master Mason his grandson at
Philip Masonic Lodge #153. That by itself is notable but, when Lincoln Smith was
raised he became the seventh Smith to be an active member of the Philip lodge.
Rich has three sons who live near Philip and all have been members of the lodge
for over 20 years. Mel has one son (Brock) living in the area and he joined in
2010 with Tucker (Kieth’s son). Now Lincoln (Kieth’s youngest son) has moved
back to the area and he was raised to the level of Master Mason on March 20.

Commissioner Snook made a motion to
accept the bid for the 2009 Caterpillar M
Grader S/N B9M00806 made by Butler
Machinery from Rapid City, SD, for
$163,000.00. Commissioner Briggs sec-
onded it. Motion Carried. For the second
2009 Caterpillar M Grader, S/N
B9M00807, a bid of $163,000.00 was
made by Butler Machinery. Commissioner
Snook made a motion to accept the bid.
Commissioner Briggs seconded it with all
in agreement.
The commission discussed the details of
the purchase of the three new graders
from Butler Machinery with Butler Repre-
sentative Alex Kulesza. Alex informed the
commission that the interest rate would
be 2.65%. There is a seven-year warranty
on the new graders. The main question
was whether spread the payments over a
period of four or five years. After more dis-
cussion, the five year repayment plan
would not be much more than the previ-
ous payment plan around $42,000 a year.
Alex will put together the payment infor-
mation and get it to the Auditor's Office.
The county has two of the H Model
graders left. After discussion, the Com-
mission decided they would wait another
three years before trading these off.
Wildlife Conservationist Officer Zach
Thomsen joined the meeting. He asked if
the commissioners had any concerns
they wished to discuss with him. He ques-
tioned the commission on any efforts of
one landowner to have a road in the
northeast part of the county closed. He
wanted the commissioners to know that
the Game, Fish & Parks needs this road
for access to their land for wildlife man-
agement purposes. He will need to let his
supervisor know if there is an effort to
have it closed. Commissioner Briggs had
received two letters from concerned citi-
zens from his area against closing this
We serve more than 779 customers an
average of 136,000 gallons of water per
day. Our water is surface water that
comes from the Missouri River that we
purchase from West River/Lyman-Jones
Rural Water. The state has performed an
assessment of our source water and they
have determined that the relative suscep-
tibility for the City of Philip public water
supply system is low. For more informa-
tion about your water and information on
opportunities to participate in public meet-
ings, call (605) 859-2175, and ask for
Brian Pearson.
The sources of drinking water (both tap
water and bottled water) include rivers,
lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs,
springs, and wells. As water travels over
the surface of the land or through the
ground, it dissolves naturally occurring
minerals, and can pick up substances re-
sulting from the presence of animals or
from human activity.
Our city council meets the first Monday
of each month at 7:00 p.m. in the Haakon
County Courthouse Community Room.
Please feel free to participate in these
Contaminants that may be present in
source water before we treat it may in-
MÌCROBÌAL contaminants, such as
viruses and bacteria, which may come
from sewage, septic tank systems, agri-
culture livestock operations and wildlife.
ÌNORGANÌC contaminants, such as
salts and metals which can be naturally
occurring, or the result of highway storm
water runoff, industrial or domestic waste
discharges, or farming.
PESTÌCÌDES and herbicides, which
may come from a variety of sources, such
as agriculture, urban storm water runoff,
and residential uses.
RADÌOACTÌVE contaminants, which
are naturally occurring or can be the re-
sult of oil and gas production and mining
including synthetic and volatile organic
chemicals, which are by-products of in-
dustrial processes and petroleum produc-
tion, and can also come from gas
stations, urban storm water runoff, and
septic systems.
Ìn order to ensure that tap water is safe
to drink, EPA prescribes regulations
which limit the amount of certain contam-
inants in water provided by public water
systems. FDA regulations establish limits
for contaminants in bottled water which
must provide the same protection for pub-
lic health.
Drinking water, including bottle water,
may reasonably be expected to contain at
least small amounts of some contami-
nants. The presence of contaminants
does not necessarily indicate that water
poses a health risk. More information
about contaminants and potential health
effects can be obtained by calling the
EPA Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-
Some people may be more vulnerable
to contaminants in drinking water than the
general population. Ìmmuno-compro-
mised persons such as persons with can-
cer, undergoing chemotherapy, persons
who have undergone organ transplants,
people with HÌV/AÌDS or other immune
system disorders, some elderly and in-
fants can be particularly at risk from infec-
tions. These people should seek advice
about drinking water from their health
care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on
appropriate means to lessen the risk of in-
fection by Cryptosporidium and other mi-
crobial contaminants can be obtained by
calling the EPA Safe Drinking Water Hot-
line (800-426-4791).
Ìf present, elevated levels of lead can
cause serious health problems, especially
for pregnant women and young children.
Lead in drinking water is primarily from
materials and components associated
with service lines and home plumbing.
The City of Philip public water supply sys-
tem is responsible for providing high qual-
ity drinking water, but cannot control the
variety of materials used in plumbing
components. When your water has been
sitting for several hours, you can mini-
mize the potential for lead exposure by
flushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2 min-
utes before using water for drinking or
cooking. Ìf you are concerned about lead
in your water, you may wish to have your
water tested. Ìnformation on lead in drink-
ing water, testing methods and steps you
can take to minimize exposure is avail-
able from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline
or at http://www.epa.gov/safewater/lead
Detected Contaminants
The below table lists all the drinking
water contaminants that we detected dur-
ing the 2012 calendar year. The presence
of these contaminants in the water does
not necessarily indicate that the water
poses a health risk. Unless otherwise
noted, the data presented in this table is
from testing done January 1 ÷ December
31, 2012. The state requires us to monitor
for certain contaminants less than once
per year because the concentrations of
these contaminants are not expected to
vary significantly from year to year. Some
of the data, though representative of the
water quality, is more than one year old.
Maximum Contaminant LeveI (MCL)
The highest level of a contaminant that
is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set
as close to the MCLGs as feasible using
the best available treatment technology.
Maximum Contaminant LeveI GoaI
The level of a contaminant in drinking
water below which there is no known or
expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for
a margin of safety.
Treatment Technique (TT)
A required process intended to reduce
the level of a contaminant in drinking
Action LeveI (AL)
The concentration of a contaminant
which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or
other requirements which a water system
must follow.
ReguIated Contaminants

Access by fire departments is one of the
main concerns. Superintendent Neville in-
formed the commission that this is a min-
imum maintenance road and is posted
with signs to inform the public of this.
Neville also said that if the landowner
wants the road closed he must first peti-
tion the Commission to vacate the road.
The Commission has final say in whether
or not the road is closed.
Highway Superintendent Kenny Neville
gave his monthly report. The first thing
discussed was the concrete work needed
at the Midland Shop. There will be a
36'x30' slab of concrete, 6 inches deep,
put in there. Neville received two bids on
the work, one from Hildebrand and one
from Gibson. Ìt was decided to go with the
quote from Gibson, as he is a local con-
Superintendent Neville has Petoske Con-
struction doing work on Lone Tree Road,
Petoske has agreed to replace two cul-
verts on this road for a cost of $4,896.00.
This does not include the cost of the ac-
tual culverts. Commissioner Konst mo-
tioned to take culverts from the SWAP
funds. Commissioner Briggs seconded.
Motion carried. Petoske will also be fixing
another culvert when working on a dam
in the area.
Ìn the past, the Commissioners have had
several questions on the liability if people
travel unimproved roads. State's Attorney
Tollefson had researched this and stated
that she could not find anything that indi-
cates that either the County or the
landowner would be liable. Superintend-
ent Neville has also looked into this. He
was advised that the signs he has put up
should read "Minimum Maintenance ÷
Travel at Own Risk¨. Commissioner
Snook mentioned that the Hostutler road
in the Ottwuma, SD, area was badly
washed down the middle of the road and
perhaps it should be posted. He thought
it had been graded last year. Neville said
he would check the road and see if it
needed to be posted.
The state had abandoned the bridge on
east edge of Midland and has removed it
from the state's inspection list. The Com-
missioners asked if it was still on the
county system and would it be a county
liability. Superintendent Neville informed
them that there needs to be a public
meeting to see if the Midland residents
want to keep the bridge there, then a de-
cision can be made on what to do next.
Sheriff Fred Koester joined the meeting at
4:00 PM to give his report. Deputy Marbry
will be certified at the end of May.
The Commission then discusses the
County Rangeland Fire Protection Agree-
ment. Chairman Clements talked to the
Philip Fire Chief Matt Reckling about the
benefits of signing this agreement. Reck-
ling said the county had signed it in the
past. Ìf the county should need some help
from the Division of Wildfire Suppression
for a fire here in Haakon County they
would not come unless we have a signed
agreement with them. Philip Fire Chief
Matt Reckling will be the contact person.
Commissioner Snook made a motion to
sign the County Rangeland Fire Protec-
tion Agreement. Vice Chairman Radway
seconded. Motion carried.
The 2014 WÌC contract was presented to
the Commission for review. Commis-
sioner Snook made the motion to approve
the contract. Commissioner Briggs sec-
onded with all in agreement.
The Midland Slamdunkers requested ap-
proval to hold a Relay For Life raffle on an
afghan and doily. The drawing will be in
Wall, SD, on 09/04/13. Commissioner
Snook made a motion to approve the raf-
fle. Vice Chairman Radway seconded the
motion. Motion carried.
Librarian Annie Brunskill met with the
commissioners with a request to surplus
two (2) of the oldest computers. They are
2002/2003 units and have already been
replaced with newer computers. Vice
Chairman Radway made a motion to ap-
prove the surplus of the computers, Com-
missioner Briggs seconded with all in

Commissioner Konst made a motion to
approve the warrants. Commissioner
Briggs seconded with all in agreement to
pay the above warrants.
Auditor Freeman advised the Commis-
sion that each county should have a Poor
Relief Policy Handbook approved and
written according to SDCL 28-13. After a
thorough search for the handbook, one
could not be found in the Auditor's Office.
The Haakon County Board of Commis-
sioners recognizes its legal responsibility
to provide assistance to the indigent per-
sons of the county. After much discus-
sion, it was decided to request the State's
Attorney to review the information and ad-
vise them on what should and what
should not be included in the handbook
according to South Dakota Codified Law.
The meeting was adjourned at 6:55 PM.
The next Regular Monthly Meeting will be
held on Tuesday, June 4, 2013, at 1:00
PM in the Commissioner's Room in the
Stephen Cements, Chairman
Patricia G. Freeman, Auditor

For the third time in the last four
Memorial Day holidays, South
Dakota has ended the official re-
porting period without a highway
Late reports from the past week-
end could change this year’s out-
come, but as of mid-afternoon on
Tuesday, May 28, the Office of
Highway Safety had received no re-
ports of fatal crashes on state roads
during the holiday reporting pe-
“That’s a great way to start the
busy summer travel season,’’ said
Col. Craig Price, superintendent of
the South Dakota Highway Patrol.
“The Highway Patrol had all avail-
able troopers out for a high-visibil-
ity saturation patrol on Memorial
Day, and we used the holiday
weekend to kick off a summer-long
safety campaign we call ‘Obey the
Sign and Avoid the Fine.’’’
The campaign is an initiative to
reduce highway crashes and in-
crease safety on South Dakota’s
roadways. Statistics show that
speeding, impaired driving and
other hazardous moving violations
are major contributors in crashes,
injuries and deaths on the high-
ways. The summer-long campaign
will target speed and alcohol in
particular for enforcement efforts.
In addition to enforcement, the
summer safety campaign will use
social media for public education
and will partner with the State De-
partment of Transportation for per-
manent and portable message
boards with safe-driving messages
on the interstates and other high-
traffic areas in South Dakota.
The Memorial Day travel period
was fatality-free in 2010 and 2011,
Office of Highway Safety records
show. A traffic crash killed one per-
son during the 2012 Memorial Day
reporting period.
State highway fatality-free
during Memorial Day holiday
May 31, Marvin, Vicki and Mary
Eide attended the funeral for Jim-
mie Dean and later in the after-
noon they attended the memorial
service for Rita (O’Connor) Nar-
cisian. Neighbors from out this way
who also attended were Bill
Gottsleben, Marvin and Phyllis
Coleman, Herb and Hazel Sieler,
Gary and Julie Nixon, Rita Ramsey
and Rich Smith. I might have
missed seeing some others who
were there.
Sunday, June 2, I attended the
open house for our minister, Kathy
Chesney, who received her Master
of Divinity. The tables were so
pretty with such pretty flower
arrangement and a delicious lunch
was served.
I had a nice visit with Beth
Kennedy. We talked about the
wonderful rains and she stated
that there were bugs in the alfalfa,
but it has been too wet to spray
them. So Kennedys are going to
start cutting as soon as it dries up
so they can get in the field. Was
nice to catch up on her family. I
think I taught Radley in church
school. I also got to visit with Jan-
ice Fitzgerald. She said that she
was busy getting ready for her
daughter’s wedding. I taught her
kids also. Andy was such a special
kid in my class. She was the re-
lease time superintendent that I
taught under for many years. I re-
tired after teaching church school
for 40 years while Janice continued
on and is still working at it.
If you have time to volunteer to
teach religion classes, I guarantee
you will learn more about and be-
come attached to many great kids
throughout the years. The
churches all need teachers. Some-
times it is hard to get to church on
Sunday, but you can attend by
teaching release time classes if you
are free to do so or maybe by teach-
ing Bible school during the summer
vacation. There is no better way to
serve your church than by teaching
God’s Word to children.
Vicki and Marvin Eide looked
after the little Fitch boys, Aven and
Rayler, Sunday while their parents
played golf. Trevor and Christa
brought pizza out to Marvin’s for
supper which we all enjoyed. The
whole family enjoys the sport of
golf and there is a lot of competi-
tion among the older boys. They
said that Kieth Smiths were also
enjoying the day.
Larry Swift was out Monday af-
ternoon to haul some cattle in for
the sale Tuesday. Braden and
Colby came to help and on the way
down they had the misfortune of a
rock flying up and putting a hole
through the gas tank. Not only is it
expensive to lose gas, but the re-
pair will make a hole in the pocket
book also.
Sympathy goes out to the fami-
lies of Phyllis Kochersberger,
Laura Morgan, Rosie Lejenne and
Jimmie Dean.
We have lost more of the pio-
neers who helped make this area
what it is. Rosie was in this area
for a long time and grew up over
near Wasta. She played for dances,
along with her sister, Marie
Hansen. And Jimmie Dean
drummed for many years for
dances all over the country, but I
remember them most when they all
played for dances at the Grind-
stone Hall.
Laura Morgan was seen every
Sunday in church at the Presbyte-
rian Church in Philip, where I also
attended. Her grandson, Scott Mor-
gan, worked for us for a while, so
was able to see and visit with her
often. She was a very kind and lov-
ing person.
Jimmie Dean was a special
friend of our family as the Smith
kids and the Dean kids grew up to-
gether. After we moved to the
Black Hills, we would come back
down and visit and we would al-
ways stop in to see Jack and
Theresa Dean. I remember as a
Grindstone News

kid, Jimmie would always see I was
entertained with games or what-
ever he could find to keep me busy.
My mother and Jimmie exchanged
letters throughout the later years.
They both enjoyed this correspon-
dence immensely.
Marlin Evans is just staying
home healing from recent knee sur-
gery and said that her granddaugh-
ter has moved back to Philip and
has employment at Philip Health
Services. Wishing you speedy recov-
ery, Marlin. It seems like it takes a
long time to get going again, but it
is really good after you heal. I had
both knees done about eight
months apart and it was a drastic
change for the better for me. The
key to healing is the exercise and to
keep doing them. I still do mine
every day.
This month is filling up with a lot
of things to do. It is hard to find a
date for anything else. Grandson
Aven Fitch and nephew Cobin Han-
rahan both will be one year old on
June 11. It doesn’t seem like they
should be that old yet. Then the
Philip celebration and the week
after that on the 22nd is the Olden-
berg reunion. Oh, and we must not
forget Father’s Day, the 16th. I also
have a granddaughter who is turn-
ing 38 on the 30th. We try to enjoy
all our family and friends while we
I always get a chuckle from this
little story called the man has man-
ners. A woman was teaching her
young son to cover his mouth when
he had to sneeze. “Your granddad
has good manners,” she said, nod-
ding toward her father. “He puts
his hand up to his face every time
he sneezes.” The boy starred at his
grandfather and asked him, “Papa,
how do you know to put your hand
up when you sneeze?” “Easy,” his
grandpa said shrugging. “How else
am I supposed to catch my teeth?”
Darlene Leas
My granddaughter, Ella, age
three and I were discussing things
we didn’t like. She said that she
didn’t like Cheetos because they
made her itch. Alarmed that she
might be allergic. I asked her
mother, who informed me Ella was
actually referring to mosquitoes,
not the orange snack food.
