Soil health to be
topic of workshop
Soil health is the condition of
the soil in relation to its inherent
(or potential) capability, to sustain
biological productivity, maintain
environmental quality, and pro-
mote plant and animal health. A
healthy soil is productive, sustain-
able and profitable.
Soil health will be the topic at a
workshop on Monday, June 17,
2013 from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
(CT) at the Dan Parish Technology
Center in Murdo, S.D.
Speakers for the evening will be
Mitch Faulkner, Range Manage-
ment Specialist (NRCS) from Belle
Fourche and Bob Fanning, Plant
Pathology Field Specialist (SDSU
Extension) from Winner. The
workshop will conclude by watch-
ing a demonstration of a rain sim-
ulator and a visit to the Nix Ranch
to learn about the different conser-
vation practices the Nix family has
implemented to improve the pro-
ductivity of their crop and range-
“Importance of Rangeland Soil
Health During a Drought” will be
the topic of Mitch Faulkner’s pres-
entation. He will show producers
the Drought Monitoring Tool and
the importance of developing a
drought plan and implementing it.
“Healthy Soil = Higher Produc-
tivity” is the topic of Bob Fanning’s
presentation. He will address that
soil health is a combination of
physical, chemical, and biological
properties that impact the func-
tion and productivity of the soil.
How soil health directly impacts
the economics and profitability of
farming it and how the health of a
soil is not static, it is either
improving or declining, and which
direction it is going is directly
related to how the soil is managed.
Following the presentations at
the Technology Center the group
will travel to the Nix Ranch.
A light meal will be provided by
First Fidelity Bank and the Jones
County Conservation District.
Sponsors of the event include
Jones County NRCS, Jones Coun-
ty Conservation District and
South Central RC&D.
Conservation District reports dying trees
Cold water doesn’t stop swimmers
by Karlee Moore
Jones County, along with sever-
al other central and south eastern
part of the state, has recently lost
multiple trees including Rocky
Mountain Junipers, Eastern Red
Cedars, Spruce and Pine trees.
Val Feddersen with the Jones
County Conservation Office said
that she has been seeing trees
aged six to ten years old being hit
hard, as well as some taller, older
and well established trees.
John Ball, Forest Health Spe-
cialist for the South Dakota
Department of Agriculture said in
a weekly pest update that winter
burn seems to be the problem with
the dying evergreen trees, pine
and spruce in particular. He said,
“trees are dying in areas that were
hard hit by last summer’s drought,
and this resulted in trees being
poorly prepared to survive the long
Ball says that there is nothing
that can be done to save the ever-
greens at this point, and he recom-
mends pruning out the dying
branches and watering the tree if
it isn’t too far gone. Otherwise,
removal and replanting is the best
Ball also said that cedar bark
beetles have been attacking East-
ern Red Cedar trees in the area.
The beetles generally attack
weakened trees in windbreaks.
However, with the drought last
summer, even healthier trees can
be affected. Ball said, “The combi-
nation of drought-stressed trees
and increased beetle activity is the
one-two punch that can quickly
kill trees in a belt.
Feddersen said that the health-
ier trees infested with the cedar
bark beetle can be sprayed with an
insecticide such as Sevin SL or
Astro, but says that it is very
important to spray the trunks of
the trees. Ball said that applica-
tion of a bark beetle control insec-
ticide should occur in early to mid-
County commissioners meet with Conservation District to discuss erosion
by Karlee Moore
Those present at the June coun-
ty commissioners meeting includ-
ed: John Brunskill, Monte Anker,
Steve Iwan, Helen Louder, Angie
Kinsley, Bruce Royer, Richard Nix,
Paul Thomas, Anita Fouss and
Karlee Moore.
The commissioners agreed to
give Bill Valburg a raise for spray-
ing weeds, making his salary $14
per hour. Brunskill then spoke to
the commissioners about the new
wireless internet in the court
house building, through Golden
West Telecommunications. Brun-
skill reported that the connection
won’t serve the whole building and
Golden West has been contacted to
fix the problem.
Homeland Security has offered
the county an assessment of cyber
security at no cost, and Deb Byrd
recommended having the assess-
ment done before paying more to
Golden West for repairs.
Anker said that he set up a com-
mittee for a Veteran’s memorial
and asked Gary Sletto to be the
chairman. He said that they will
figure out what they want for sure
before working on funding.
Brunskill told the commission-
ers that he received a notice from
Extension that they owe $4,000, a
bill that was due in March. How-
ever, this is the first the county
was hearing of the bill.
Kinsley approached the com-
missioners about attending the
pre-disaster mitigation meeting
and stressed that the emergency
management disaster information
needed to be updated.
Kinsley also said she was work-
ing on a getting a list of all facili-
ties in the county with hazardous
materials. She also discussed
upcoming 4-H projects with the
commissioners including a State
Teen Leadership Conference in
Brookings, a horse show in White
River, and said she would be doing
a computer training for the 4-H
The commissioners approved a
liquor license for Bad River Bucks
and Birds, and approved a trans-
fer between the Busted Nut Bar
and Grill and the Nut Buster Grill
and Lounge.
The county then met with Nix
and Thomas from the Conserva-
tion District to discuss soil erosion
that had occurred from recent
strong winds. The county was
informed that until the Conserva-
tion District deems the erosion as
excessive, there is little that the
county can do to solve the problem.
They have received two written
complaints and one verbal com-
plaint from the Draper Cemetery.
The county was informed that
the soil district recommended
planting trees and practicing a dif-
ferent kind of farming to reduce
the blowing dirt.
Fouss was present during this
time and said that before the coun-
ty can do anything, the Conserva-
tion District has to pass a formal
resolution with the specific land
and land owner after a written
complaint has been submitted to
the district. No operations to
repair erosion damage may be
undertaken by the county unless
the conservation district has
approved the repairs by way of
resolution. A notice has to be per-
sonally delivered to the land
owner causing the nuisance, who
then has thirty days to repair the
damage. If the land owner fails to
repair the damage within the thir-
ty day period, the county may take
action to complete the repairs, will
the expenses for such repairs
falling on the land owner.
Townships have a legal obliga-
tion to keep all section lines free
from obstruction, and that the
township is authorized to tell land
owners to remove any obstruction.
City Council agrees to continue
cleaning up old buildings in town
by Karlee Moore
Those present at the Wednes-
day, June 5 city council meeting
included: Dave Geisler, Matt Kins-
ley, Jay Drayer, Wayne Esmay,
Arnie Waddell, Mike Jost, Jerry
Hatheway, Ray Erikson, Krysti
Barnes, Larry Ball and Karlee
The council agreed to address
Ball at the start of the meeting. He
approached the city about order-
ing new doors for the front of the
Harold Thune Auditorium. He
said that he would like to see four
new doors with insulated bottoms
and glass on the top half. The
agreed to budget the project for a
later date.
The agenda and minutes were
then approved. Building permits
included: Matt Cazan to extend his
garage 10 feet south. After discus-
sion that the garage could be in
the right of way on the street,
Drayer suggested to approve the
permit with a variance. The build-
ing would need to be 10 feet from
the road to be out of the right of
way. Erikson said he would find
the property lines and asked if any
of the council members would be
available to measure. The right of
way in town is 60 feet, and proper-
ty owners have to build 10 feet
beyond the right of way. The coun-
cil agreed to table the request.
The second building permit was
for Rob Kaiser to repair tin on his
roof. Waddell made the motion to
approve Kaiser’s request, and it
was seconded.
Vouchers were approved after a
brief discussion on supplies need-
ed to repair the dock at the North
Dam. Erikson said that the ice this
winter did damage to the dock,
and said that from now on, the
dock will be pulled out of the water
in the winter.
The police report was approved
and Hatheway presented the
street report. He reported that he
tore down the Pappas house on
Main Street, as well as the house
on Garfield Street now owned by
Mike Miller. Hatheway also said
that he worked on improving the
functionality of the culverts on the
intersection of First Street and
Washington Avenue.
Erikson presented the water
report and elaborated on the plans
for the dock at the North Dam. He
said that the Murdo Chamber of
Commerce agreed to pay fund con-
crete work and repairs for the
dock. He said he would get a quote
from Kevin Patrick on the con-
Erikson also reported that the
swimming pool was ready to go,
although the water was still cold.
As of press time, the pool had been
open for a few days.
Barnes addressed the council
next with the finance report. She
reported attending a Central
South Dakota Enhancement Dis-
trict meeting where she learned of
new grants the city could apply for.
Barnes said that the baseball
team has just enough kids for a
team, and that there are 24 kids
participating in T-Ball this sum-
Barnes was approached by
Angie Kinsley, Jones County
Emergency Manager, recently ask-
ing for attendance at a pre-disas-
ter mitigation meeting. The meet-
ing will be held on Wednesday,
June 19 at the Sportsman’s Club
in Murdo. Barnes said that it is an
important meeting, and that for
every person who attends, the
county will receive more money
toward’s their matching grant.
Barnes’s report was approved
and the city moved on to old busi-
ness. The Ingalls building issues
have almost been resolved, and
the board discussed that any dirt
or gravel put into the lot to level it
needs to be billed to Ingalls.
Esmay suggested that the city
start work on planning the
removal of the next dilapidated
building in town. The board
agreed to get started on the proj-
A preliminary draft of the
recent Murdo housing study has
been given to the city, and Barnes
reports it gave good recommenda-
tions. It told the city how many
houses should be demolished and
gave recommendations for an eld-
erly housing unit.
A second reading was given on
the trailer house ordinance and
three bids were received for the
hay at the North Dam. Hunter
Iversen bid 55 percent city, 45 per-
cent self; Mike Barnes bid 55 per-
cent city, 45 percent self; and Craig
McKenzie bid 53 percent city, 47
percent self. Barnes and Iversen
were contacted to resubmit bids.
Barnes won the bid, as Iversen did
not submit a second bid.
New business included the dis-
cussion of an opening on the
Murdo Housing Board. Deb Byrd’s
position will be open in August,
and the board needs to decide on a
person to fill the spot. The mayor
will appoint someone and the
council will need to approve.
Mayor Geisler also said that he
had been approached about the
condition of the tennis courts. The
Turner Youth put time and money
into the project previously, and the
facility hasn’t been kept up. The
council suggested resurfacing the
courts and Drayer suggested lay-
ing a concrete base.
Licenses for sale of malt bever-
ages to the following businesses
were also approved: Pioneer Coun-
try Mart; The Rusty Spur; GTO
Cafe; Anchor In; Star Family
Restaurant, LLC; Farmers Union
Oil Co; and Pilot Travel Centers,

On guard… Lifeguard Cody Manke takes time to talk to a
swimmer during his watch of the 10 foot area.
Water basketball… The pool provides an added challenge as
a group of young men spend their afternoon shooting hoops and
staying cool. Lifeguard Paige Venard reported water tempera-
tures of 56 degrees, but that didn’t stop swimmers. The high
Monday afternoon was 90 degrees and after a cold couple of
weeks, kids of all ages filled the pool eager to start their summer
off on the right foot.

Letter to the Editor
Good job to all the businesses
that donated their time and money
for the Third Annual Poker Run of
which the proceeds go to the Jones
County Ambulance. This event
happened on Saturday and once
again was a success. Funds were
raised for a good cause. There
were many people that donated
their time for the dinner which
was delicious again this year.
Everyone was invited to join the
members of the poker run for din-
ner and music under the stars.
The evening was dampened by an
individual who single handedly
tried to make this event a failure.
He complained about the music
before it even started and tried
everything in his power to shut it
down. The public should know how
you feel about the local community
trying to help out an organization
like the ambulance. The wordage
used by you was: “the destruction
that these events cause.”
The local sheriff had to handle
this call and was able to stay pro-
fessional while trying to appease
both parties. The public knows the
sheriff needs to deal with more
important issues than menial com-
plaints from people who feel the
need to try to make a good time

For Just Being Here
by Pastor Cornelius R. Stam
When you sigh for heaven, remember:
“…Christ…loved the Church, and gave Himself for it…That He might present it to Himself a glorious Church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such
thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish” (Eph.5:25,26).
Too readily we forget that Christ loves us infinitely more than we love Him; that He paid the penalty for our sins on cruel Calvary and shed His life’s
blood that one day He might have us for Himself to share His glory with Him forever.
Surely, then, He would rather have us at His side in heaven than here in this scene of sin and sorrow, and sickness and death. We should bear this in mind
when we long that we might leave this world and go to be with Him.
But there is more: The Saviour, who was exiled from this earth, and is, even now, rejected by men, has not yet rejected them. Rather, He has left us here
as His ambassadors on hostile territory, to plead with his enemies, praying them “in His stead” to be reconciled to God, assuring them that He has done all
that is necessary to effect a reconciliation (IICor.5: 20,21).
And this is His attitude toward mankind now, though the prophetic Scriptures declare so emphatically that man’s rejection of Christ was to be — and will
be — visited with the severest judgment (Psa.2:4-9; Acts 2:16-20).
But not yet! Though man had declared war on Christ (Acts 4:26,27), He did not yet make a counter-declaration, but interrupted the prophetic program to
save Saul of Tarsus, the leader of the rebellion and sent him forth to usher in the present “dispensation of the grace of God” (Eph.3:1-3).
This is why, in His love and compassion, He leaves us here still to plead with His enemies: “Be ye reconciled to God”. And what about His special love
for us? Entirely apart from rewards earned by service or suffering for Him, God will richly reward us (II Cor.4:17) just for being here as “ambassadors for

Please put on your “thinking
caps” for a moment. Have you
ever considered the fact that lit-
tle sins are the pioneers of hell?
The Apostle Paul wrote to the
believers in Galatia: “Be not
deceived, GOD is not mocked: for
whatever a man sows, that shall
he also reap. For he who sows to
the flesh shall of the flesh reap
corruption: but he who sows to
the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap
life everlasting” (Galatians 6:7-
Note two very important facts
about a harvest. Facts that are
well known in this agricultural
community. However, they are
not always considered in life.
1) There is a law of “quality”.
“Whatever”. Like always begets
like. Causes and effects are vital-
ly linked.
2) There is a law of “quantity”.
Seed produces a crop. In some
instances, a tremendous crop.
These laws apply in the spiri-
tual realm as well as in the natu-
1) What are you sowing? If to
the flesh --- two kinds of corrup-
tion. a) Inward depravity. b) Out-
ward wickedness.
I’m quite certain most of us
have heard this little “ditty” ---
“Sow a thought; reap a word.
Sow a word; reap an act. Sow an
act; reap a habit. Sow a habit;
reap a character. Sow a charac-
ter; reap a destiny.”
This is as certain as the fact
that the seed you plant will pro-
duce “after its kind.” So I ask,
What are you living for?
2) What of the harvest time?
How much will you reap? The
creeping plume thistle multiplies
so fast, if all seeds were as pro-
ductive, the second crop would
nearly cover the earth.
The eggs of a Gypsy moth,
blown from a college professor’s
window once stripped New Eng-
land’s trees when the moths
came along. It cost many thou-
sands of dollars to fight them.
Sin sets in motion a train of
causes leading to increasingly
disastrous effects. Who knows
what the harvest of one sin may
GOD’s law of the harvest CAN-
NOT be mocked. Yes, little sins
are the pioneers of hell. Be care-
ful what you sow and cast your-
self on the grace and mercy of a
loving GOD Who has provided
JESUS CHRIST as the Savior.

Farm Safety and Employee
It was a bit of a coincidence that
one day when I was reflecting on
the HOSTA (Hazardous Occupa-
tion and Safety Training in Agri-
culture, or “Tractor Safety” School)
that was recently held in Winner, I
read an interesting entry in the
journal type book by Ryan Taylor,
“Cowboy Logic Family Style”.
The theme of Ryan Taylor’s
entry in the book was the virtue of
his fathers’ management skills,
and how he tries hard to treat peo-
ple the same way, helped of course
by his upbringing. At least on a
farm or ranch, one of the chal-
lenges of a good manager (that
would usually be the owner) is
when employees (including their
children) have “farm wrecks”. For-
tunately for the operator, most
“farm wrecks” involve various
degrees of severity of damage to
the piece of farm machinery being
used, but not to the person at the
controls. I can attest to this as I
had several “farm wrecks” while
growing up and working for neigh-
bors in my college years, yet
remained relatively unscathed in
terms of personal injury.
I can also agree with Ryan’s
observation of his father’s lack of
yelling, screaming, chewing out
and belittling of the “wrecker”, in
that such actions were about as
effective as yelling at cattle. I
know I deserved a good tongue
lashing after some of my wrecks,
and dreaded how bad I might get it
when the manager assessed the
damage. I don’t recall any severe
belittling for my casualties, but do
remember a variety of reactions. I
didn’t enjoy any of them, but the
ones farthest from the yelling,
screaming and belittling end of the
spectrum motivated me to do bet-
ter in the future much more than
the agitated ones.
Unfortunately too many “farm
wrecks” do involve personal injury
or much worse. While the farm
manager/owner cannot control all
of the unsafe acts their employees
do, they can remove stress by
treating their help fairly and with
respect, maintain their equipment
and facilities with safety in mind,
provide safety instruction and
encourage safe work habits.
Four good ideas to control or
reduce accidents are: 1. If possible,
remove the hazard, 2. If you can-
not remove the hazard, guard it, 3.
Educate the worker, and 4. Protect
the worker.
Nic Uilk, Instructor in the Ag
and Biosystems Engineering
Department at SDSU, coordinated
and taught the HOSTA program
and did a great job of informing
the eight youth in attendance
about the potential perils of work-
ing on a farm or ranch. Nic plans
to hold a series of HOSTA pro-
grams next year at various loca-
tions around the state. Fourteen
and fifteen year old youth who
plan to work on a farm other than
for their parents need to complete
the requirements for a HOSTA cer-
tificate. Somewhat younger and
older youth, and those who will be
working for their parents are also
welcome to attend. For more infor-
mation on the HOSTA program,

producers in SD, as well as KS,
NE, ND, OK, and TX.
Crops that will be affected are
all small grains for haying and
grazing (ie: wheat, oats, hay mil-
let, triticale) and any annually
planted forage intended for hay-
ing or grazing such as sweet
sorghum/cane, oats/peas, peas,
etc. Since RMA is offering CAT
level coverage for crops grown
under this policy for 2014, NAP
coverage will NOT be available in
these states.
Deadlines for coverage for
these crops for the 2014 crop year
are as follows:
July 15, 2013 – final
date to insure fall seeded
December 15, 2013 –
final date to insure
spring seeded crops.
Unfortunately, your NAP con-
tinuous coverage letter for 2014
will incorrectly include these
crops for which the new plan of
insurance is available. These let-
ters will come from our Kansas
City office this year and not
directly from the county office. So
if you are a producer that just
mails a check for coverage, you
may want to give us a call to see if
your fees will change for 2014.
Interested producers should con-
tact a crop insurance agent for
further information. A list of
agents can be found on the RMA

The U.S. Department of Agri-
culture (USDA) is conducting a
four-week general sign-up for the
Conservation Reserve Program
(CRP) which ends on June 14.
Additional sign-ups for continuous
CRP programs-such as Highly
Erodible Land Initiative and Ini-
tiative to Restore Grasslands, Wet-
lands and Wildlife-started May 13.
Prevented planting must be
reported no later than 15 days
after the final planting date. The
final planting date for Corn and
Milo was May 31; therefore, June
15 (or 17 due to the weekend) is
the last day to report Corn and
Milo prevented planting acres.
Similarly, failed acreages must
be reported within 15 days of the
disaster event and before disposi-
tion of the crop. Filing an accurate
acreage report for all crops and
land uses, including failed acreage
and prevented planting acreage,
can prevent the loss of benefits for
a variety of programs. Acreage
reports are required for many
Farm Service Agency programs.
All acreage reports are to be certi-
fied by the July 15, 2013 deadline.
Acreage reports on crops for
which NAP assistance may be paid
are due in the county office by the
earlier of July 15, 2013 or 15 cal-
endar days before the onset of har-
vest or grazing of the specific crop
acreage being reported.
FOR 2014

Forage policy called the Rainfall
Index Annual Forage plan of

Saddle Bronc Chute-Out coming up in White River
Bronc Riding fans and contest-
ants, of all ages, will certainly be
entertained on Saturday, June 29,
2013 at the Frontier Arena in
White River, S.D. And if you’re not
a rodeo fan now, you will be after
attending this annual event.
The third annual Saddle Bronc
Chute-Out, hosted by the Michael
Glynn Memorial Coalition, will
feature 25 of the area’s best bronc
riders. Contestants entered so far
are coming from South Dakota,
Nebraska, Wyoming and North
Dakota. Locally, Ben Adrian and
Bill Chauncey are entered;
Chauncey having just completed
stellar performances at the High
School River Regionals, and head-
ing for the SD State Finals next
weekend in Belle Fourche.
Others entered at this time are
Eric Addison of Caputa, S.D., who
has been a finalist in the Chute-
Out the past two years, as well as
brothers Ty and Derek Kenner of
Wood Lake, Neb., who have been
top contenders. In addition, PRCA
contestant Nate Nelson of Bis-
mark, N.D., will by vying for prize
money, as well as his traveling
partners Dude Koester, Jake
Tescher and Sean Johnson, all
from Medora, N.D.
Of the 25 contestants, 12 will
come back to ride in the second
and final round.
A $5,000 purse will be added to
their entry fees, for the potential of
a large pay-out for the 12 top rid-
Youth Events
Added events this year will fea-
ture a round of Mini-Bronc riding.
Youth ages 7-14 will be riding
miniature horses provided by
Kevin Pinney of Philip, S.D., and
Dean Hawk of Rosebud, S.D. All
contestants in this event will
receive a token prize. The two top
mini-bronc riders, as determined
by a combination of judge’s scores
and crowd enthusiasm during
their ride, will receive Champion
and Reserve Champion belt buck-
Up to 16 contestants can event
the Mini-Bronc event. No experi-
ence is necessary, as Pinney said
he will talk to the rider, and match
the rider’s ability with a horse.
“We saw this event during a
national event,” organizer Joyce
Glynn said, “and we just knew we
had to offer it at our bronc ride. It
is so much fun to watch those kids
on miniature horses, and what a
great way to kids excited about
In addition to Mini-Broncs,
youth aged 5-6 will be riding sheep
in a classic round of Mutton
Bustin’. Prizes will be awarded to
each of these contestants as well.
Added Attractions
The bronc riding will begin at 6
p.m. CT with the first round cal-
cutta. A calcutta will be held for
each round of riding.
John Costello, PRCA announcer
from Sundance, Wyo., will serve as
announcer for this years bronc
ride, bringing his wit and wisdom
for added entertainment.
Photo opportunities will be
abundant for parents. George and
Suzanne England of rural Mellette
County will be present with a dis-
play of their goat herd, including
four-legged baby ‘kids’ that love to
be held and photographed with
two-legged ‘kids’!
“We’ve got some really fun, and
healthy gifts lined up for everyone
who comes through the gate,” she
adds. “And just like last year, we’ll
be giving free root beer floats to
everyone who agrees to stay alco-
hol-free the whole weekend.”
This event, as all events hosted
by the Michael Glynn Memorial
Coalition, is alcohol-free.
“We know the tragic conse-
quences of drinking, and drinking
and driving,” Glynn explains. “We
want, especially young people, to
know that you can have a lot of
fun, even at a rodeo, without hav-
ing alcohol involved. We don’t
want anyone to drive away under
the influence of alcohol.”
For more information, or to
enter yourself or a youth in any of
the events, you can contact Roger
or Joyce Glynn at 344-2533 or 441-
5389, or e-mail
Gate admission is $10 for
adults, and $5 for all school aged
youth (6-17); up to age 5 is free.
Concessions will be available on
the grounds. No drugs or alcohol
will be allowed, nor will anyone be
allowed in who appears to be
under the influence of alcohol.
The Michael Glynn Memorial
Coalition was formed following the
death of Michael Glynn in 2006,
who died in an alcohol-related car
crash the morning after his high
school graduation. Michael was a
rodeo athlete, whose passion was
bull riding. The mission of the
MGM Coalition is to offer opportu-
nities for youth and adults to
become or stay alcohol, tobacco
and drug-free.
HOSTA training… Nic Uilk, SDSU Instructor, far right, coor-
dinated and taught a HOSTA certification training for eight
youth in Winner. The eight youth came from Tripp, Gregory,
Jones, Mellette and Hutchinson counties. Jacob Lolley from
Murdo participated in the course.

“The purpose of rangeland judg-
ing is to provide an understanding
of rangeland resources and a sense
of stewardship in natural resource
management,” noted Dave Ollila
on a South Dakota State Universi-
ty iGrow Web page.
The 30th annual Rangeland
Days and ninth annual Soil Days
is set for June 25 and 26 at Kado-
ka. Youth between the ages of
eight and 18, as well as adults, will
test their rangeland knowledge
during the two days. Youth are
broken up into four groups, based
upon their ages. Learning activi-
ties are designed for a variety of
age groups and expertise – start-
ing with plant morphology and
identification on up to judging
habitat suitability for cattle or
The first day is spent on the
prairie, learning about the proper-
ties of rangeland resources and
management practices to employ.
The second day the youth and
adults apply this newly found
knowledge through scenarios cre-
ated in a contest format.
In addition, students have the
opportunity to compete in cate-
gories including informative dis-
plays about rangeland, exhibiting
student developed range plant col-
lections and a speech contest on
range related topics. The student
participant with the highest
cumulative score in each age divi-
sion will be award a “Top Hand”
belt buckle.
The age divisions break out as
follows: New Rangers – eight to 10
year olds, Wranglers – 11-13 year
olds, Scouts –14-18 year olds with
no previous range judging experi-
ence and Go-Getters 14-18 year
olds who have previous range eval-
uation experience.

“Rangeland is a kind of land, not
a land use. Rangeland is fragile,
yet durable and resilient. Manage-
ment profoundly impacts the simi-
larity index, a measure of range-
land condition that reflects its
value for livestock, wildlife and
humans. The purpose of rangeland
judging is to provide an under-
standing of rangeland resources
and a sense of stewardship in nat-
ural resource management,” said

ist and technical contributor in

2001-2012.pdf is a digital version
of the “Judging South Dakota
Rangelands for Livestock and
Wildlife Values manual.” “This
manual describes a contest with
components that have a strong
biological basis for habitat man-
agement of both beef cattle and
prairie grouse. Beef cattle have
been chosen because they are the
most common livestock species
grazed on South Dakota range-
lands. Once stocking rates are
determined for beef cattle, conver-
sions can be made to determine
stocking densities of other grazing
animals, such as horses, sheep and
goats. Prairie grouse represent
wildlife because they are affected
by management and have the
potential to occur throughout the
state. There are three primary
species of prairie grouse that
inhabit the state: sharp tailed
grouse, prairie chicken, and sage
grouse. Management can achieve
many desired rangeland uses. Veg-
etation, livestock, and wildlife
respond in a predictable manner to
range management practices,”
said Ollila.
Soil Days is an opportunity to
learn more about one of the most
important South Dakota
resources. Students will
learn how to determine soil tex-
ture, soil depth, past erosion, slope
and stoniness. They will also learn
how to interpret permeability, sur-
face runoff and limiting factors.
From this information they will
determine the land capability

recommended treatments for vege-
tation and mechanical erosion con-

Jones County camp date
Weight room
to host
open house
For decades, cooperative busi-
nesses have had a dramatic
impact on the South Dakota econ-
omy and the well-being of our
rural communities. That’s why
Farmers Union organizations from
across the state host annual day
camps for children to learn about
cooperative business and the
important role they play in South
Dakota. This year’s theme: “Farm-
ers Union is our name, Coopera-
tion is our game,” shows the
emphasis the family farm organi-
zation places on working together
toward a common goal.
All children ages 6-13 are invit-
ed to attend Jones County Farm-
ers Union day camp scheduled Fri-
day, June 21, 2013 at the Mickel-
son Community Center in Murdo,
SD to learn about cooperation and
other topics like financial literacy,
agriculture and leadership. This
year’s camp will include a number
of fun and educational activities
for young people. The registration
fee will be $5.00 for Non-Farmers
Union members and free for mem-
bers. Registration will begin at 9
a.m. with camp from 9:30 a.m. - 3
p.m. We will be going swimming
and campers are asked to bring a
suit, towel, $1.00 or pool pass and
sturdy shoes for activities.
“Many of our rural communities
in South Dakota rely on coopera-
tive business for fuel, food, elec-
tricity, telecommunications and
other services,” said Bonnie Geyer,
State Education Director. “We
hope young people will attend the
camp to learn many important les-
sons and life skills that they can
apply to their own lives. They’ll
learn about teamwork, agricul-
ture, leadership and other skills
while having fun in a safe and
friendly environment.”
Campers will participate in
cooperative games and hands-on
team building activities including
a human board game to teach
young people about Farmers
Union, cooperatives and financial
literacy where they will test their

The Clinical View
• Dr. P.E. Hoffsten •
As mentioned in the two previ-
ous columns, effective stress man-
agement is based upon the two
critical drivers for normal human
behavior. Those drivers are:
1. Self determination
2. Self evaluation.
When these two drivers are not
satisfied normal healthy human
behavior is frequently impaired
generating a series of self talks
that lead to destructive and unsuc-
cessful responses. The first two
columns in this seven part series
presented basic irrational self talk
“it upsets me” and followed with
the general irrational self talk, “he
shouldn’t do that.”
The next irrational self talk in
the series deals with the detrimen-
tal aspects of denial and insight-
lessness. This self talk involves a
group of thoughts whereby the
individual denies that an event
has occurred at all or denies
understanding how an undesired
event results. This leads to such
self talks as:
1. It can’t be.
2. It is just not possible.
3. There must be some mistake.
4. I don’t understand it.
5. There is no reason for this to
Very commonly, these self talks
are used at a time when a devas-
tating event has occurred such as
a death in the family, the failure of
a business, or a divorce. It is an
initial response with the hope that
believing something just can’t be
will allow the person to deny that
it happened at all. Believing that
an event could not have happened
or has no reason to have occurred,
it is easy to deny that it occurred
at all. But the irrationality of this
response is almost always “it did
happen.” Everything happens for a
reason. Since the event did occur,
there is a reason even if it is not
obvious at this time or something
that a person can understand.
In regard to the self defeating
aspects of “I don’t understand it”
note that this sacrifices control
and the person has no way to
respond meaningful and leading to
immobilization often at a time of
great need.
Dr. Witte, who originated this
series of self-talks, then rehearsed
with his patients a group of self
talks with which the individual
acknowledges reality, acknowl-
edges that events occurred for a
reason, even if that reason is not
known to the individual. His list of
anti-stress self talks include:
1. This event can have occurred.
I will first verify the situation. If it
is really true, I will cope with it.
2. I do believe it occurred but
would prefer not too. This is very
unpleasant and disruptive for me.
Give me time to accept this event
and adjust to it.
3. There is a reason for every-
thing that happens. I may not
understand this now but I
endeavor to find out why this has
4. Most direct way to find out
why someone did something that I
didn’t like is to ask them.
Note the sequence of destruc-
tive self talk that we have this far.
1. This shouldn’t happen.
2. I don’t understand why it
3. It upsets me.
Almost always, this series of
self talks generates a need to
change what occurred. Almost
always this cannot be done. But
acknowledging no understanding
of what has occurred is an immobi-
lizing situation by itself.
A brief description of a personal
event may illustrate the destruc-
tive impact of this series of irra-
tional self talks. I had five chil-
dren. As they were growing up,
part of household chores included
doing dishes. The duty would
rotate from one child to the next
and all seemed to be working well
until one of my sons began claim-
ing that after he did the breakfast
dishes which were few in number
this counted as a rotation accord-
ing to him. But the person that fol-
lowed him with supper dishes had
a much bigger load which that per-
son felt was unfair. When I found
out about this, I initially thought
to myself, “he shouldn’t be acting
this way” and in my naivety I also
believed his behavior upset me.
My responses to anger at that time
were not as healthy as they have
subsequently become. My son and
I would have a confrontation
which resulted in the dog hiding
under the bed, the other four chil-
dren leaving the house and my
wife upstairs with bedroom door
closed. When I attended Dr.
Witte’s initial seminar, he asked
for an example problem to analyze
using his techniques. The
exchange went as follows.
I explained the problem to him
as above, finishing my remarks
with,“ he shouldn’t act like that, it
upsets me.”
Dr Witte then said, “Why is this
upsetting to you?”
Me: “If he acts this way at
home, he will probably act this
way outside the home.”
Dr Witte: “I believe that, what
is so bad about that?”
M:, “If he acts that way in the
world outside the home, others
will reject him and he won’t be suc-
Dr Witte: “That is probably
true, what is so bad about that?”
Me, beginning to think Dr.
Witte was kind of slow: “I would
like for my son to be an upstand-
ing successful individual who
treats others fairly.”
Dr Witte: “That is a noble and
admirable attitude for a father. Is
what you are doing working?”
Me: speechless.
Needless to say there were a
hundred other responses that I
might have had than my anger but
I self generated my own problem
by, “he shouldn’t do that. I don’t
understand why he acts this way,
it upsets me.” This may seem a
trivial example but I promise you
that in the past 30 years, I have
encountered countless incidents as
a physician with much more dire
consequences than my trivial
problem as above. These dire situ-
ations were very frequently gener-
ated by the same simple irrational
self talks described above.
Introducing online interviews for
United Blood Services blood donors
United Blood Services donors
now have the ability to complete
their donation interview online the
same day of their blood donation
appointment. With this new serv-
ice, United Blood Services can
reduce the length of interviews on-
site at a center or mobile drive to
only essential follow-up questions.
Donors can visit the United Blood
Services website, access the inter-
view and print out a barcoded Fast
Track Donation Ticket that they
must bring with them to their
“Whenever we survey donors
about how we can make their
experience better, they usually say
that the interview process should
be simplified, shortened or auto-
mated,” said Jennifer Bredahl,
Regional Donor Recruitment
Director for United Blood Services.
“We took these suggestions to
heart and now are happy to pro-
vide this new, shortened interview
process for our dedicated donors.”
United Blood Services encour-
ages donors to give the online
health history questionnaire a try
for their next donation. There are
some important guidelines to note,
especially the fact that donors
must complete the questionnaire
the same day as their donation.
Donors still have the option to
have one of our staff members ask
the health history questions, like
we currently do. All donors have to
do is simply request this option
when they arrive to donate.
Instructions can be found online
and by clicking the “Health Histo-
ry Questionnaire” link on the left.
Answers cannot be saved, so
donors must complete the 10-15
minute interview in one sitting.
Donor data is stored only in the
barcoded “Fast Track Donation
Ticket” that a donor will print fol-
lowing the interview, so a login is
not required. The online donor
interview was developed by Cal-
imex USA Corp., a software devel-
oper based in San Francisco.
People who are 16 or older,
weigh at least 110 pounds and are
in good health are eligible to
donate blood. Additional
height/weight requirements apply
to donors 22 and younger, and
donors who are 16 must have a
signed permission from a parent or
arrive home with no major prob-
lems. I parked the trailer at the
ranch where it sat a year or two
until someone offered to buy it. I
sold it. My trailer days were over.
I had some good times in that
camper and don’t regret having
had it for a few years, but it was
time to move on to other things. I
figured there were easier ways to
have fun.
Wife Corinne and I feel some-
what similar when we watch the
revelry going on in Times Square
on New Year’s Eve. Everyone is
laughing, and shouting, and
apparently having quite a grand
time. Personally, Corinne and I
have no desire at all to stand
around outside all bundled up
against the cold and waiting for
some silly ball to drop, signaling
the beginning of a new year. It
always looks to us like those folks
in Time Square are trying awfully
hard to have a good time. More
power to them, but don’t expect us
to join them anytime soon.
Part of my aversion to manufac-
tured fun has to do with being
raised on a ranch. You simply
have to travel too far to find a
party, and sometimes the roads
are muddy or snow covered to
boot. It is easier to find simpler
things for entertainment such as
walks on the prairie, a dip in the
stock dam on a hot day, fishing,
watching a sunset, and the like.
Additionally, seeking constant
pleasure seems a bit shallow as a
life’s goal. Isn’t it somewhat better
to accomplish useful things in life?
It seems that way to me anyway.
What is ideal is when your work is
enjoyable. For many of us, ranch-
ing often fills the bill. Being out-
side tending critters has some bad
times, but also many good ones. I
also find it satisfying to provide
music at church on Sunday, write
down various observations on life,
and help take care of my young
son who can’t do a lot of things for
himself. I also like fiddling with
computers, practicing the piano,
reading books, eating a tasty
meal, and just enjoying life in gen-
eral. I seem to have no need to
search for pleasure. It’s all around
me. All I have to do is enjoy it.
For instance, I’ve just finished
writing this which took some con-
centration, typing, and computer
fiddling. Next I should practice
the piano in getting things ready
for church tomorrow. After that, I
have some shrimp needing to be
cooked up with pasta, tomatoes,
mushrooms and cheese. Sponge
cake with cream-cheese frosting is
available for dessert. Take a
guess. Would I rather be right
here leading the simple life or
traveling the country in a huge
RV trailing a car with attached
boats and bikes? Yep, you’re right.
Home is where the heart is, and
right now my heart is glad to be at
Is it possible to work too hard at
having fun? I suspect it might be.
Take the RV that I passed on the
freeway the other day. Here was
this huge brown RV rolling down
the road with a car hooked on
behind. Two canoes were strapped
to the top of the car and three
bicycles on the back of it. One
more bike was strapped to the
back of the RV. “My goodness!” I
thought. “These people are work-
ing really hard at having a good
And, for them, it might be quite
a lot of fun. I don’t know for sure.
It would be a little tedious for me.
There you are driving this small
train many miles to get to an
interesting destination. Then
you’d have to find a place to park
and get set up with electrical and
plumbing connections after mak-
ing sure the RV was fairly level.
You’d probably have to take down
the canoes and bikes and get all
settled in. This would take quite a
bit of time. Naturally, you would-
n’t want to miss anything so you
might see if the park had a decent
pool and go for a swim. Other local
attractions should really be
checked out as well.
All in all, I had no envy at all for
the family or group that was trav-
eling around in this mobile fun
machine. I maybe could handle
driving to some resort, setting up
and staying there for a week or so,
but moving this rig to new loca-
tions every day would soon try my
patience. I had a travel trailer for
a while and pulled it from South
Carolina back home to the ranch
after being in the Navy. It was
somewhat enjoyable, but nothing
I’d care to repeat at this point in
my life. I think of the time some-
where in Kentucky or Tennessee
when I was going over some
mountains, and my car vapor
locked and would barely move.
“Now what am I going to do?” I
wondered. I had visions of being
stalled out on a steep, winding
mountain road with a defunct car
pulling a trailer. Luckily, things
righted themselves after a cool-
down, and I could continue on and

Lessons from my father
by Senator John Thune
The Saturday Evening Post
writer, Clarence Budington Kel-
land, once said: “My father didn’t
tell me how to live; he lived, and
let me watch him do it.” The power
of example is perhaps the most
challenging and rewarding part of
parenthood. While both of my girls
are grown now, it doesn’t seem
that long ago that their big blue
eyes were watching my every
move. This seemed to be particu-
larly true at the times that I was-
n’t feeling especially patient or
friendly. It was on those occasions
that I would think back to how my
dad, who always understood the
power of example, would handle
himself in similar situations.
Growing up with four siblings,
there was never a shortage of
action around our home. However,
my dad was never too busy to
indulge us in a game of catch, to
plan our next trip to the fishing
hole, or to make it out to one of our
school events. I enjoyed the quali-
ty time I had with my dad and I
respected that “family first” wasn’t
just something he said, but a phi-
losophy by which he lived. I also
recognized the authority my father
had in the house, and understood
that his high esteem in the com-
munity came from the way he
lived his life and the respect he
showed to those around him.
The example set by my father is
one that helped shape my values.
He pushed me to demand more
from myself; he called on me to ask
the tough questions, and asked me
to make the tough decisions. I am
part of his legacy just as my two
daughters are part of mine, and
while my daughters are not watch-
ing as intently as they once were, I
know that they continue to watch
to see how my actions match up
with my words.
This Father’s Day is the perfect
opportunity to take time out of our
busy lives to thank our dads, for
the batting practice, for the handy
repairs, for the tough love, and for
the constant example. I wish a
very happy Father’s Day to my
dad, Harold, my father-in-law,
Jim, and to all the fathers across
South Dakota.
Honoring fathers
by Rep. Kristi Noem
I’ll never forget the day my dad
and I were checking fences on our
ranch and he pointed out the
prairie pasque flower to me. He
told me how it was a special flower
and how it only grew on native
ground that had not been devel-
oped, plowed, or disturbed.
As we talked about how rare it
is to find land like that and how a
person had to search to see the
small, diminutive flower tucked
away on the hillsides, I remember
thinking how this was such a dif-
ferent conversation than I was
used to having with my tough,
cowboy father. Usually, he was
busy giving me my next list of
chores to complete, or asking why
I wasn’t done with the list of
chores he had given me earlier. He
was a hard worker and it wasn’t
often that he took a break to point
out the special beauty of the land
around us.
The pasque has been my
favorite flower ever since. Not only
does it reflect the hardiness and
beauty of the South Dakota peo-
ple, but every time I see one, it
also reminds me of my dad. I have
shared the same story and facts
about our state flower with my
children. We go out each spring as
soon as the snow melts to look for
the pasque flowers that appear
before the grass dares to turn
green. They realize that their
backyard – and the pasture
beyond – is not only special, but
now part of our family heritage.
Perhaps your father shared a
story with you that you’ve never
forgotten or maybe certain holi-
days or events remind you of your
dad or grandfather. As we near
Father’s Day, it can bring a range
of emotions for people. Whether
you’re a new dad celebrating the
birth of your first child or mourn-
ing the recent loss of a father, I
hope each one of us can honor our
fathers or father-figure by thank-
ing them for their impact on our
lives and being grateful for each
day we have had with them. While
I miss my father every day, I also
choose to be happy for every day
that I was blessed to be his daugh-
Dad and I shared a love for cat-
tle, horses, and the land. Every
day was an adventure with him,
even though some of them were
challenging. He pushed us kids,
made us work hard, and woke us
up most mornings with the phrase,
“We’re burning daylight! Get up!
More people die in bed than any-
where else!” We weren’t always
happy to be crawling out of bed so
early, but today I am thankful for
the example he set and for teach-
ing me to tackle a difficult job
when it needed doing.
While I am in Washington, D.C.
my husband Bryon is back home
on our ranch with our three kids.
Often he is doing chores, juggling
meals, doing laundry, planning
family activities and running the
family business. He’s busy! I could
not do my job representing South
Dakota without his support and
willingness to do whatever it takes
to help keep our family healthy
and happy. Kassidy, Kennedy,
Booker and I try to show him
every day how grateful we are for
all he does, but we try to make an
extra special effort on Father’s
Day. He is such a blessing to all of
Spending time away from my
family is not easy, but like many
South Dakotans, I wake up,
remember the lessons my dad
taught me, and continue to work to
provide a better future for my kids
and grandkids. I encourage you to
share lessons your father taught
you, or lessons you’re hoping to
teach your kids with me and oth-
ers. I’d love to hear them!
I also hope you will join me and
thank all of the fathers and male
role models across South Dakota
for all that they do to make our
lives better every day. Happy
Father’s Day from my family to
