Introducing online interviews for United Blood Services blood donors
Day-of-appointment service will decrease length of interviews at blood drives; try it at Faith’s drive on July 11th.
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 service, 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 interview and print out a barcoded Fast Track Donation Ticket that they must bring with them to their appointment. “Whenever we survey donors about how we can make their experience better, they usually say that the interview process should be simplified, shortened or automated,” said Jennifer Bredahl, Regional Donor Recruitment Director for United Blood Services. “We took these suggestions to heart and now are happy to provide this new, shortened interview process for our dedicated donors.” United Blood Services encourages 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 at www.UnitedBloodServices.org and by clicking the “Health History 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 following the interview, so a login is not required. The online donor interview was developed by Calimex USA Corp., a software developer 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 guardian. You can try out this new process for Faith’s next blood drive, on July 11th. The Catholic Daughters are sponsoring this blood drive. You may call Amy Ulrich to schedule an appointment. There won’t be one in Dupree this time around.

South Dakota’s Broadband Initiative awards 18 technology grants
Recently, the South Dakota Broadband Initiative (SDBI) awarded technology grants for projects exceeding $150,000 to 18 Community Anchor Institutions (CAI) across South Dakota. The funding is part of the federal Department of Commerce’s National Telecommunication and Information Administration’s (NTIA) State Broadband Initiative. “This program has been very beneficial to the Community Anchor Institutions across South Dakota,” said Jim Edman, Deputy Commissioner for the South Dakota Bureau of Information and Telecommunications and Project Manager for the SDBI. “The ability to establish or refresh one’s technology infrastructure through this program is a tremendous opportunity for the CAIs in today’s constrained economy. This boost for the local communities has a direct impact on increasing broadband services, usage and adoption; a key goal for the State Broadband Initiative.” A list of the institutions awarded grants is provided below. Included for each CAI is the total cost of the proposed project which reflects a required 20 percent matching investment through cash, in-kind or both. 1.

Highway Patrol to be ‘Out in Force’ in July 4 Safety Campaign
South Dakota’s Highway Patrol will be out in force on the Fourth of July with a high-visibility campaign to emphasize safe travel during the holiday weekend. The day-long saturation patrol will involve virtually all uniformed troopers. It is part of the Highway Patrol’s summer-long safe-travel campaign, “Obey the Sign and Avoid the Fine.’’ “The Fourth of July holiday period is one of the busiest of the year for travel on state highways,’’ says Col. Craig Price, superintendent of the Highway Patrol. “Putting as many troopers on the road as possible raises public awareness of the need to make safe travel choices. That means wearing seatbelts, following speed limits and other rules of the road, avoiding distractions and having a sober driver every trip.’’ “Obey the Sign and Avoid the Fine’’ is a campaign to reduce highway crashes and increase safety on South Dakota’s roadways. Office of Highway Safety statistics show that speeding, impaired driving and other hazardous moving violations are major contributors to crashes, injuries and deaths on state highways. While speed and alcohol are the top targets for the enforcement campaign, troopers will be enforcing all other traffic laws. In addition to enforcement, the summer safety campaign is using social media for public education and has partnered with the State Department of Transportation for permanent and portable message boards with safe-driving messages on the interstates and other high-traffic areas in South Dakota. 

Walter George Grueb, 90, lifelong rancher of Meade County, went to be with the Lord on June 27, 2013, at Rapid City Regional Hospital surrounded by his loving family. Walt was born April 26, 1923 to George Walter and Weta (Rosser) Grueb. With assistance from a midwife, he was born on the prairie near Bixby, SD. Walter grew up on the Grueb Ranch near Imogene and attended rural grade school and graduated from Bison High School in 1940.  After high school, he went to work for Hans Thinglestad, first herding sheep and later farming.  Walt was drafted into the U. S. Army in 1945. In the spring of 1945, Walt met Mathilda Anna Moelter and on October 6th of that year, they married.  Walt became a member of St. Joseph's Catholic Church when they married.  From this union, five children were born: Linda, Herbert, Rodnee, Irma,

Cell phone ban for young drivers effective on July 1
A new law making it illegal for young drivers to use a cell phone while driving takes effect on Monday, July 1, South Dakota Department of Public Safety officials remind citizens. The law, passed by the 2013 Legislature, prohibits anyone who holds a learner’s permit or a restricted minor’s permit from using any handheld communication device while driving. Generally, such permits are issued to persons between the ages of 14 and 18. “Young people still gaining experience with driving really need to avoid any distractions,’’ said Jenna Howell, director of Legal and Regulatory Services for Public Safety. “Driving is a full-time responsibility for all of us. That is especially true for our younger drivers who are still trying to get comfortable behind the wheel of a vehicle. The law emphasizes the need to pay attention to the road.’’ A learner or instruction permit allows the holder to drive between the hours of 6 a.m. and 10 p.m. if accompanied by a person who has a valid driver license, is at least 18 years old and has at least one year of driving experience. That person must occupy a seat beside the young driver. A restricted minor’s permit allows the holder to drive between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m. with permission of a parent or guardian. The holder of a restricted minor’s permit may drive between the hours of 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. if the parent or guardian is in a seat next to the driver. The Legislature directed that the new law be enforced as a secondary offense, meaning a young driver would have to be stopped for another offense before a ticket could be issued for driving while using a handheld communications device. 

Letter to the Editor
The Canadian company, Powertech, Inc., plans to mine uranium in the Black Hills using the groundwater of our region as a tool (in situ leach mining). The risk of permanent contamination of our aquifers is significant. Rehabilitating groundwater would be time-consuming, difficult and expensive. All attempts to restore the "mined" aquifers could fail. Powertech plans to convert uranium ore into yellowcake, which would be available for export, and could be used to generate nuclear power or build weapons. They risk contamination of so much water for the profit of so few, for a product that may do little to improve people's lives.  The people of our region go back a hundred, or in many cases, hundreds of years. Our culture of water use has allowed us to survive, and sometimes thrive, in this semi-arid land. From the perspective of the working man and woman, life  is possible here because we view clean water as a common good.  If we want a vision for our water that is life-sustaining, we must protect it.  We need to persuade our state's Water Management Board members to question the belief that Powertech can return nothing but clean water to our aquifers.  Kim Kelley Deadwood, SD

Veterans News
Larry Zimmerman SD Secretary of Veterans Affairs
As we gather this Fourth of July, at parades, picnics, barbeques, ballgames, concerts, and fireworks displays – all in honor of our country’s birth and continued success; let us remember what America really is and how our independence was achieved. After the Continental Congress accepted the Declaration of Independence, John Adams wrote a letter to his wife, Abigail, on July 3, 1776: “I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary Festival. It ought to be commemorated as the Day of Deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever……” Don’t let this be just another holiday. Reach out and thank your veterans for the freedom they have achieved for us. Let us never stop educating our youth about the price that has been paid for their freedom! Live up to John Adam’s challenge to celebrate from one end of this continent to the other. On Thursday, as we celebrate our exceptional past, let us also celebrate America’s future. Let us also keep the men and women who are serving on active duty in our thoughts and prayers; especially South Dakota’s 152nd Combat Sustainment Support Battalion that will deploy July 6 to Afghanistan in support of Operations Enduring Freedom.

Summer is here! We had temperatures mostly in the upper 80s last week. And no moisture! Temeratures are going to remain in the 80s this week, with a chance of rain over the weekend. We can certainly use some. I received this email from Bev Birkeland too late for last week’s news... Dianna Harper from Mukilteo, WA was here visiting relatives and staying with her sister, Beverly Birkeland this past week. During her stay, they hosted their mother’s family for the bi-annual Thomas family reunion. There were about 44 members and extended family in Faith on the 22nd at the house. Out of town guests include: Jamie, Sabrina and family from San Diego, Buddy Thomas from Santa Clara, CA; Bev’s family – Sherrie Palmer, Dean Birkeland, and Rhea Crane; Evelyn Anderson and family – Vicki Schilling, Perry and Lonnie Anderson, Dave Thomas, JoAnn Jordan from Arkansas, Keith and Lucille Emerson from Philip, Virginia Lensegrav from Meadow, Bernice

Paul and I went to Rapid City last Friday. Melissa was down from North Dakota and spent the day with us. She came down to get stepson Hunter to spend some time with them. They left all for Minnesota Sunday morning for several days, so we are dog sitting for them. Nick and his girlfriend and Brooke went on the trip, too. They were taking in a couple Yankees/Twins baseball games and will be home Friday night for the car races. Of course, we went to the races Friday night, and what a good night! Eric finished 2nd in the main. He said that was so much fun! His new car does what it’s supposed to do when they make adjustments, his old one didn’t. I know this will be late for those in the country, etc., but there will be fireworks at Durkee Lake on the 4th of July. There are also games at the swimming pool in the afternoon, and the golf scramble in the morning. Lots of things to do! Have a safe and happy Fourth of July!

Capp from Belle Fourche, Charles and Sharon Capp and grandson David from Spearfish. Our own Randy, Mona, Tonya, Bill and boys from Faith were here. Other extended family included Jack Garrett, Steven Garrett and their families from WA, Juan and Johnilyn Garrett and daughter Shamra and Javon and Randy Fiester and their families. Condolences to the family of Walter Grueb. Walter passed away last week and his service was held yesterday, Tuesday. Walter was a longtime Faith area rancher. He and Tillie raised a nice family. Dave and Eldora Fischbach went to Rapid City last Tuesday to meet daughter Laurie and granddaughter Samantha, who flew in from Ohio, at the airport early Wednesday morning. The two gals will be spending about three weeks here enjoying the ranch life. There will, more than likely, be a couple trips to the house in Rapid City. Nathan and Anita and family will be spending the 4th of July with them, too.

Church missions to Bridger and Takini
Now in their fourth year of missions trips to the Cheyenne River Indian Reservation, the Saint Dunstan Episcopal Church of Houston, Texas, and the Good Shepard Episcopal Church of Tomball, Texas, donate a week’s worth of work and devotion to the communities of Bridger and Takini. This year’s 20 high school and 10 adult volunteers spent two days traveling in two vans and a suburban, arriving June 25. They will head back Sunday morning. Plans are in the works for next year’s trip to involve two weeks. Later this year some of the churches’ volunteers will be making a mission trip to the Dominican Republic. Debbie Johnson, one of the adult leaders, said they are here to assist and work with the people who live on the Cheyenne River Indian Reservation. They have a relationship with Reverend Byron Buffalo and his United Church of Christ. Last year the mission group trucked in a medical clinic building. They said the prefabricatedtype structure somewhat resembles a railroad car. It had to be set on the ground with the use of a crane. The building’s water lines are being replaced this trip, and eventually electricity will be hooked to the building. The mission crew believes the school district superintendent will have the school nurse use the building. Approximately four years ago, the St. Dunstan youth director was looking for missions that they could build a relationship over time and continue it. It is a trip where work such as painting and construction is done, volun-

teers learn about other people, and group devotion times are often also attended by community children. The group stays in the Bridger church, and works on continuing projects from their own groups and from other groups. What one mission group starts, another finishes, and it is a coordinated effort. Most weeks during the summer have some mission doing something for the residents of the reservation. During the Fourth of July week, a group from Liberty, Mo., is scheduled to be there. Johnson said her youth do take the mission trip seriously. Some have been here before. The lack of dependable cell phone and Internet service does take some getting used to, though. Virginia Blake, another adult volunteer, added that it is good for the kids to be unplugged for a while.

Marcus News
By Vicky Waterland
As we were driving home from the Hills tonight I was thinking how beautiful our world is right now. The multi shades of green mixing with the blues of sage and gamma grass broken by a skyline that was topped with a spectacular South Dakota sunset. Shades of purple, blues, reds, to pinks and indigo all backed by streaks of gold and that gorgeous clear, pure air we breathe.  Only God could craft such glory and mix the colors to give the array that puts us in awe. Then I shook myself and thought "Good grief" I've read way too many Zane Gray books! I don't think I could go on for four pages like he did but it sure is pretty right now. The antelope and deer you see are often followed by a young fawn just discovering the wonders of the world. The cows and calves are looking sleek and fat and the young foals frisk around the pastures. I saw some cone flowers a few days ago but they aren't abundant yet. The yucca plant blossoms look like they've been on steroids. Every hillside seems to have some in bloom. Soon the heat of July will start to dry things up but for now it is a sight that only God can create! I thank my maker for letting me live on the prairie, an area filled with wonderful folks. We buried one of those great guys last Tuesday when we attended the funeral for Ernest Delbridge which was held at the Community Center in Union Center. There was a large attendance from many areas. Ernest and Chalk Hawks always had a story to tell that would leave you with a smile on your face. Your heart was lighter because Ernest took the time to visit. He made it a point to enjoy his neighbors and friends, sharing our burdens and our triumphs. He never tooted his horn and claimed he was a Christian, he just lived like one. I've seen a lot of "Christians" who are so busy being "the saved ones" they forget they're driving people away by not participating in their community. Ernest wasn't that way, he was just Ernest, take him or leave him. He didn't put on airs! Thankfully, Ernest and Viola were blessed with children who continue to live in our area and make this a better world by following in their dad’s footsteps. God Bless all of you and thanks so much for sharing him with us! Tucker and Bev Hudson, Wregan and Wraylee Brown spent the weekend camping with the Hudson clan at Deerfield Lake. There were about 40 in attendance throughout the weekend. Canoeing, fishing, bike riding,  kayaking, and four wheeling was some of the entertainment along with lots of good food cooked over the campfire. Teri Brown met Hudsons at Elk Creek and took the girls home after spending 10 days with Grandpa and Grandma while their folks were in Gallup, New Mexico. Most of Jim and Vonnie O'Dea's news is about Granddaughter Amy Deichert and her wreck with the high headed cow! While helping a neighbor on Monday, a cow hit Amy on the right side, knocking her down and running over her. She saw the cow coming, but wasn't fast enough to get out of the way. Jim brought Amy up to the highway and Vonnie met them and into Sturgis they went. Amy's mom met them there. Three hours later they knew Amy had 2 fractured ribs and a punctured lung. She was then transferred by ambulance to the Rapid City hospital, getting into a room at 3 am. Vonnie and Susan spent the night at the hospital with Amy. Vonnie came home Wednesday evening when Susan came from teaching summer school in Spearfish. Amy was dismissed Friday afternoon and went home with her mom to Spearfish. O'Deas kept appointments in Rapid Friday and visited Amy before she went home. Best wishes go out to Amy. Plans for rodeoing this summer are on hold! We are very glad to hear she came out of this as well as she did. Get well soon girl! Harold and I attended the 40th Anniversary celebration for Mel and Marcia Dutton Saturday evening. All their children and all but one grandchild were here to help them celebrate. All the anniversary attendees were treated to “Newlywed Game” style entertainment of Mel and Marcia answering questions about each other. Despite Mel’s claim “I know everything about this woman.” The game proved he didn’t. I visited with Dennis Ellefson Monday morning in Faith. He told me he and Wanda will be moving to a farm near Aberdeen. We wish them the best of luck in whatever they choose to do. Haying continues all around the area. Windrows this year look like they should, not a wimpy little pile of weeds like we saw last year. The little piece of land west of our house has more round hay bales on it this year than Harold

says he ever got in years past. Unfortunately we are also in need of a rain to keep the crops such as wheat, milo, hay grazer etc. growing. Quirt Wondercheck attended Vacation Bible School at the White Owl church this past week. He rode there with Angela, Canyon, and Journey King. On Friday, Robert, Lacey and Rio

Wondercheck, Allen Waterland, Harold and I attended their Bible School Program and viewed their craft items. A special thank you goes out to the folks of the White Owl church who gave of their time to make this happen. Sunday, Lacey, Quirt, and Rio Wondercheck and I attended church in Union Center. Judging from the number of small chil-

dren in church the Union Center School should be busy for a few years yet. That afternoon Harold and I drove to Rapid City and around the Hills. We ate supper before coming home that night. Amanda and D’Anne Thompson have been watching the children for Darcy and Lyle Long while mom is helping in the hayfield.  

Central Meade County News
While it's still quite green in Central Meade County, we could use a rain. There is a bit of a crunch in grass that has not been watered. The dry weather has been helpful for haying though. Many are in the midst of cutting and baling right now. Ranchers are trying to get to their alfalfa cut before the weevils consume most of it. Wes and Sue Labrier have had grandchildren from Colorado staying with them this past week. Sue plans to return the children some time this week. Floyd and Donna Cammack are spending time in Alaska. Their son Mike lives there so they will be able to spend some time with him. The community was saddened by the loss of Ernest Delbridge, who passed away on June 20. Our sincere condolences go out to his wife, Viola, and children Arnold, Harold, Norman, Paul and Sandra. Earnest was a kind man and will be missed by many. Funeral services were held Tuesday, June 25 at 10:30 am at the Central Meade County Community Center in Union Center. Calvin Chapman officiated and the burial was at the White Owl Cemetery. A memorial has been established to the Plainview Fire Department. The Matt family spent the weekend at the river for a family reunion. They enjoyed tubing and

fishing as the weekend was perfect for outdoor activities. Some of the Rhodens spent the weekend at Deerfield Lake. Lorie and Gary Hausmann, John and Sylvia Rhoden, Kenny Rhoden and family, and others enjoyed time together in the Hills. As a reminder, for those interested in a photography and art class there is a "Sunshine On My Shoulders" class for parents and kids (or grandparents) this Wednesday, July 3 or Saturday, July 6. The Painted Prairie Song class is July 10 or July 27. The registration link that has dates and details is http://jodeneshaw.blogspot.com/p/registrationfor-retreat-and-online.html

South Dakota electric cooperatives alarmed by President Obama’s proposal to increase regulations and costs
In a speech at Georgetown University, President Obama announced a broad new federal mandate to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from electric power plants. The President will instruct federal regulators to apply the Clean Air Act to carbon dioxide issued from power plants, effectively outlawing coal-burning facilities. South Dakota’s electric cooperatives are especially concerned about this proposal because rural and low-income Americans already spend disproportionately more on energy than others. “The impact of the President’s plan on co-op-served families and businesses could be significant in South Dakota,” said Ed Anderson, general manager of the South Dakota Rural Electric Association in Pierre, S.D. “Rural communities have been put through an economic wringer for the better part of a decade; they’ve made incredible sacrifices.” “The President’s plan fails to take into account electric cooperatives existing efforts to protect the environment in a responsible and cost effective manner. With more than 1,060 megawatts of installed renewable generation capacity in our portfolio, South Dakota electric cooperatives are doing a lot more than just talking about our commitment to the environment. That, coupled with the fact that electric cooperatives have been leaders in encouraging energy efficiency and conservation for decades, should serve as a model for a responsible approach to addressing climate concerns,” said Anderson “We can move forward in our collective efforts to protect and improve the environment. And we can do it in an effective and affordable manner. Using the Clean Air Act to tax every coal-fired generation facility in the United States out of business is not a responsible solution. It is only expedient,” Anderson said. “I hope we can work with the President to form a more reasonable and sustainable plan,” said Anderson.

Grand River Roundup
By Betty Olson
The only rain we got this week was 9 hundredths last Saturday and it’s been great haying weather. Temperatures haven’t reached triple digits here yet, but with the mercury in the eighties every day, summer is definitely here. With this hot weather, Bryce and Trig almost enjoyed fixing the river gaps across the Grand River that runs through our ranch. Casey installed our air conditioner on Wednesday and it runs every day. We started haying Monday so all our time is spent in the hayfield, running for parts, and fixing the breakdowns. Did you notice that you seldom have to repair swathers, mowers, rakes, or balers when you don’t have much hay, but with a good hay crop you almost need a full-time mechanic? But hey – we’re not complaining! Brad Lemmel, Red Lemmel’s son with the South Dakota Department of Tourism, drove out from Pierre for the Great Western Cattle Trail Association meeting at the Heritage Center in Spearfish Wednesday evening. Rep. Lance Russell brought copies of the proposed articles of confederation for us to review and the group poured over a map of South Dakota to decide where to put the GWCTA cement markers to mark the Western cattle trail across our state. The markers are being made and donated to us by Croell Redi-Mix. They’ve done a wonderful job making the markers and we hope to soon be able to use Croell’s advertising slogan for the markers we place on the trail across western South Dakota you know, the one that says “They’re everywhere, they’re everywhere”! Thursday, Reub and I made a trip to Laufer’s north of Hettinger for haying supplies and parts before Reub’s appointment with Mary Eggebo in Hettinger. Mel Eggebo is doing well, but he’s going to have more surgery soon, so please keep him in your prayers. While we were in Hettinger, I bought more tomato plants for my garden. The tomatoes I set out earlier aren’t doing so well. Some of them died and the survivors have leaves that are curled up to look like little green balls. Everything in the northern part of my garden is doing great, but the weeds and other plants on the south side of the garden are suffering from the same malady as the tomato plants. I can’t see any bugs on them, the guys plead innocence when I accused them of spraying weed killer around there, and I’m stymied. Do any of you know what could be causing this? Derek Brink’s mother, Gayla (Long) Brink, passed away Thursday at Rapid City Regional Hospital. Gayla grew up in Bison where her parents, Cliff and Bea Long, ran the City Café on Main Street. I sometimes babysat Gayla and her younger brother Greg. She was a wonderful person and much too young to leave this earth. Gayla’s funeral will be Wednesday with burial at Black Hills National Cemetery. Our sympathy goes out to Gayla’s family. Our community gained a new member Friday evening when Kelli Blair married Clint Doll in Sturgis. After the beautiful ceremony, a huge crowd of friends and relatives gathered at the Shade Valley Campground east of Sturgis to celebrate their marriage and to welcome Kelli into our neighborhood. Clint’s cousin, Michael Anderson, a.k.a “Mad Dog”, was one of Clint’s grooms-

men and he brought his new wife Madison. Mad Dog and Madison were married a couple weeks ago in Colorado and it was a pleasure to meet her. Kelli and Clint will live in the house where Clint’s grandparents, Guy and Sylvia Doll, lived after they went to work on the Hackamore Ranch for Kelli’s great uncle, Harry Blair, back before Clint’s father was born. When I called the ranch to visit with Clint’s Mom on Monday morning, Janet told me that Kelli and Clint were out horseback moving bulls. She fits in well around here!  Harry Blair’s son, George, was also at the wedding. George will soon be 92 years old and is as excited as we are about the newest Blair/Doll connection. All six of George’s daughters, Janet, Mary Beth, Nancy, Gayle, Kathleen and Ann, plan to run in Clint’s Aunt Elaine Doll-Dunn’s Leading Ladies half marathon in Spearfish August 18th. George’s daughter Nancy Remington just celebrated her 60th birthday by climbing Bear Butte for the 60th time. I think her Grandpa Harry Blair was 90 the last time he climbed Bear Butte, so the challenge is there for his younger relatives! Maurice Hamilton turns 90 on Tuesday, July 2nd and most of the Reva community gathered to help him celebrate at the Reva Hall Sunday afternoon. 94 year old Bob Hanson came to wish his old friend Happy Birthday and some of us got to wondering just how many WWII veterans like Bob and Maurice we have left in this area? Maurice was the only one we could think of in Harding County. Let us know if we’re missing anyone, will you? We had a Harding County history book meeting in Buffalo Monday evening. Copies of the book are selling fast, so if you want one, send a check for $80 for the two volume set written to “Harding County history book” to Alice Holcomb, 13699 Harding Rd, Buffalo, SD 57720 if you plan to pick the volumes up and $90 if you want them mailed. Alice also has a lot of pictures and stories that she would like to return to the owners. Call her at 605-3753459 and she’ll get them sent to you. I’ll leave you with this little bit of advice for all the newly-

weds:              At their granddaughter's wedding, the DJ polled the guests to see who had been married longest.  It turned out to be the grandparents. The DJ asked them, "What advice would you give to the newly-married cou-

ple?"  Grandma said, "The three most important words in a marriage are, 'You're probably right.'" Everyone then looked at Grandpa. He said, "She's probably right."

The Garden Gate
By Karen Englehart, Master Gardener SDSU Extension - Perkins Co.
We hear about giant pumpkin contests, in fact Bison Master Gardeners sponsor a heaviest pumpkin contest at their Pumpkin Fest.  We hope you are trying your hand at growing a prize pumpkin for this year.  But giant tomato contests are not common, especially in this area.  Maybe we should give that a try. The biggest tomato recorded so far as we could find was 7 pounds, 12 ounces grown by Gordon Graham of Edmond, Oklahoma. This winning tomato came from a 'Delicious' vine. Most huge tomato varieties are indeterminate (plants that grow and fruit all season) slicer or beefsteak types. 'Giant Belgium' produces sweet fruits that average 2 pounds. 'Hillbilly' is an heirloom beefsteak type with pink-andyellow bicolored fruits that weigh in at 1 to 2 pounds. 'Big Zac' is a hybrid of two heirlooms, and it regularly produces 4-to-6-pound fruits!  Well known big beef tomatoes ('Beefsteak', 'Italian Giant Beefsteak', 'Watermelon Beefsteak', and 'Beefmaster'), which produce heavy fruits. It's a lot of work to coax your tomatoes into really packing on the pounds. First of all, you'll need to provide the best basic care: full sun, fluffy soil with plenty of organic matter, lots of space between plants, an inch of water per week, and support (stakes or cages). Get the plants into the ground early and protect them with Wall-O-Waters or cloches. Hold off on mulching until the ground warms up and the plants begin to flower. Fertilize every two weeks with a dilute fish emulsion fertilizer (be careful

Giant tomato competition – Really?

not to provide too much nitrogen, you'll get a lot of foliage and few fruits). A real tomato competitor knows how to identify the big “king flowers” or megablooms which they hand pollinate in hopes of producing that winning fruit.  Megablooms are often described as conjoined with extra “body parts”, multiple pistils, sepals, floral whorls, thus easy to spot as they are big and abnormal. The beefsteak varieties are most often the winners as they have a higher number of locules (seed cavities) associated with increased weight and volume, most are heirloom or F1 hybrid varieties. Indeterminates are a must, large fruits need large plants. Once the plants begin to grow, the real training begins. Allow only one stem to develop, and pluck off suckers (the sprouts that form between branches and the main stem) when they are very young. Remove all but two or three fruits from each plant. It's best to eliminate developing fruits at the top of the vine and leave older fruits at the bottom. Prune off tomatoes that develop farthest from the stem and leave one fruit per cluster. Prevent branches from breaking by supporting the tomatoes with pantyhose slings when they start to get really big. And wish for some good luck. Maybe we can get a contest going for the Perkins County Fair next year. If you planted a beefsteak variety, give it a practice run this year.  Thanks to Willi Evans Galloway at Organic Gardening for the tips shared here. Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature. It will never fail you. – Frank Lloyd Wright

The fancy shawl dance is the most modern of the women’s dance styles. It began when women started wearing their shawls instead of draping them over their arms when dressed in their regalia. Fancy does not refer to the shawl, but to the foot work which involves kicks, twirls and fast movement. The music in a wacipi comes primarily from the drum groups who circle the arena and play large, specially designed drums and sing traditional songs. The clothing worn by dancers is referred to as regalia, never costumes. Good guests at a wacipi do not touch the dancers’ regalia. The master of ceremonies will make announcements about etiquette and the types of dances being performed. “Indian dancing almost faded out until contest dancing appeared in the mid-1960s. The interest in money and dancing caught like wildfire and a resurgence in dancing occurred,” Whitebird said. What one sees at a powwow are dancing feet, colorful regalia and smiling faces. Information about powwows in South Dakota can be found at the South Dakota Department of Tourism’s website, www.travelsd.com/Events. This moment in South Dakota history is provided by the South Dakota Historical Society Foundation, the nonprofit fundraising partner of the South Dakota State Historical Society.

The dancing feet of the Powwow The long prairie grass swayed in the hot summer sun. The young American Indian man, fasting and praying as he watched the grass dance in the wind, soon saw himself dancing in a similar manner. But how could this be, since he had been born without the full use of his legs? The Medicine Man in his village interpreted his vision. The boy asked his mother to make an outfit in which to dance using the prairie grass. He was covered from shoulder to ankle with long, thick, bright multi-colored fringes made of yarn or ribbon. He showed his father how he would dance, using much shoulder, arm and head movements. His footwork would appear like he was stumbling. A song was composed for him. He showed the village his style of dance. This is how the grass dance originated, according to American Indians in the Northern Plains. The grass dance is one of the dance styles common at a modern powwow. While a powwow is defined as a gathering of American Indians and can take place for many reasons, it is often associated with dance. Each session of a wacipi (the Lakota word for powwow, pronounced “wah chee pea”) begins with the grand entry. The eagle staff and various flags lead the way into the dance arena. The flags represent nations, families and communities. When the eagle staff is brought into the area, powwow etiquette requires spectators to stand and remove their hats in respect. Wacipi are open to visitors, but everyone attending should follow proper etiquette. “Veterans have an integral part in powwows as they are honored by leading the dancers into the arena,” said Francis Whitebird of Saint Francis, an Indian educator and former director of the South Dakota Office of Tribal Relations. Once all the dancers are in the dance arena and while the spectators are still standing, the flags are raised and the flag song is sung. This is followed by a veterans honoring song. The master of ceremonies is the voice of the wacipi. This person keeps the singers, dancers and the general public informed as to what is happening. The oldest form of dancing is the traditional dance. The men danced in the middle of the dance arena and the women stood on the side, according to Whitebird. “In the mid to late 1950s, the shawl dance for women and the fancy dance for the men made their appearance in Lakota country. The women joined the men

and danced in the middle of the dance area,” he said. The men’s northern traditional style of dance was a form of storytelling in which each warrior acted out deeds committed during a battle or hunt. Men’s fancy dance is the most contemporary style of dance. It is the most strenuous and athletic of the dances. The dance is fast and features jumps and twirling. The regalia is said to represent the rainbow spirits with its bright colors and flying feathers and ribbon. The women’s traditional dance requires enormous stamina, concentration and grace. Dancers stand on the outer edge of the dance arena. They barely move their feet and gently bend their knees as they move up and down in rhythm with the drum. Originating with the Ojibwe, the women’s jingle dress dance is a healing dance. According to one legend about the jingle dress, a medicine man was given a vision in which he saw his daughter and three of her friends dancing in dresses adorned with “jingles.” The jingle dress is made of a cloth, velvet or leather base adorned with jingles made out of a shiny metal, usually chewing tobacco lids. The dance is in a “side-step” fashion designed to incorporate the sound of the jingles by allowing them to move.

South Dakota Humanities Scholars visit Faith
Tass Thacker and Bruce Junek created Images of the World in order to share the story of their adventures bicycling and exploring the world. They visited Faith last Tuesday, June 25, representing South Dakota Humanities Council as guests of the Faith Public/School Library.  Tass and Bruce have traveled all over the world on bicycles, taking pictures and sharing stories of people, places and culture. In the morning during the summer reading program, the couple shared their trips to Greece, Turkey and Egypt.  The Faith Public/School Library Summer Reading Program participants enjoyed beautifully colored photographs of pyramids, scenery, food, people and places,  while listening to Tass and Bruce share stories about their trips. In the evening of Tuesday, June 27 at the Faith Community Center, everyone was invited to share in another presentation given by Images of the WorldTass Thacker and Bruce Junek. The couple shared photos and stories from trips to Honduras, Guatemala and many parts of Mexico.  Bruce and Tass took many beautiful photos of the rainforest, people, places and culture. Tass and Bruce spoke about a common theme – that if you set a goal, you can attain it by living simple, keep healthy and exercise.  More information about Images of the World can be found at: http://www.imagesoftheworld.co m Author Bruce Junek and Photographer Tass Thacker have published two books: Andes to the Amazon and The Road of Dreams that can be checked out at the Faith Public/School Library or you can purchase your own at their website. Thanks to all the youth who participated in the Summer Reading Program. The adult night continues on Monday nights and teens on Tuesdays. The program was sponsored by a grant from the South Dakota Humanities Council, Robert O’Sheas American Auxiliary and the Faith Public/School Library.

Enright elected to Junior Advisory Council
number of eligible campers who have finished at least their junior year of high school run for a spot on the six-person council. “I’m incredibly proud of Brooke and all of the young people on the council,” said South Dakota Farmers Union state education director Bonnie Geyer. “It’s an honor for them and their families and we’re proud to have such great young leaders who have chosen to be part of the Farmers Union family.” Brooke will be a senior this fall at Faith High School. She’s the daughter of Travis and Jone Enright. Other members of the Junior Advisory Council are Aidan Beck of Huron, Dayton Trujillo of De Smet, Jackie Dethlefsen of Stickney, Tucker Greene of Plankinton, and Chris Nemec of Holabird. As part of the Junior Advisory Council, Enright will organize and facilitate the 2014 Farmers Union state leadership camp and attend several Farmers Union functions including Farmers Union Day at the South Dakota State Fair and the Farmers Union state convention. “It’s a wonderful leadership opportunity for our young people,” Geyer said. “It allows them a chance to take hold of Farmers Union camp and learn leadership strategies that will make them successful during the week of camp and learn skills they’ll take with them the rest of their lives.” South Dakota Farmers Union’s state leadership camp is held each year in the Black Hills. The weeklong camp brings nearly 100 young people ages 13-19 together for a week of cooperative education, leadership training and traditional camp activities.

Prevent recreational water illness this summer
South Dakotans  who head to the beach and the pool this summer should take common sense precautions to prevent  waterborne illnesses such as cryptosporidiosis, says a state health official.  "Water sports are great physical activities and we don't want to discourage them but we do want people to practice healthy swimming," said Bill Chalcraft, health protection administrator for the Department of Health. In 2012, South Dakota reported 113 cases of the diarrheal illness  caused by Cryptosporidium parasites. Through May of this year, 37 cases have been reported. Chalcraft said beaches, pools, hot tubs and waterparks can be contaminated by runoff, the presence of chlorine resistant germs, or poor maintenance. Contamination can also result when individuals with diarrhea use recreational waters. People at high risk for recreational water illnesses include the young, the elderly, pregnant women, and the immunosuppressed.  Chalcraft offered the following prevention tips for all swimmers: •Shower with soap before swimming and wash your hands after using the toilet or changing diapers. Wash your children thoroughly with soap before swimming. •Don’t swim when you have diarrhea. •Don’t swallow pool water. •Take young children on bathroom breaks and check diapers at least every hour. •Change diapers in a bathroom or a diaper-changing area and not poolside. •Use sunscreen with at least SPF 15 and UVA and UVB protection, reapplying after swimming. •Change out of wet swimwear and shower thoroughly after swimming. Parents should keep an eye on children at all times when near the water and avoid using water wings and other swimming aids in place of life jackets. Learn more about healthy swimming at www.cdc.gov/healthyswimming.

FHS Student Council receives Academic Achievement Team Award
email us at faithind@faithsd.com
Initiated during the 1996-97 school year, the SDHSAA Academic Achievement Team Award program is designed to recognize varsity athletic teams and fine arts groups for their academic excellence. The South Dakota High School Activities Association believes that high school students learn in two distinct ways: inside the classroom and outside the classroom (on the stage and/or athletic field). This academic program creates a positive environment for school teams to have its members excel in the classroom. This program is also meant to motivate students toward academic excellence and to promote academic encouragement from teammates. All varsity athletic teams and fine arts groups that participate in Association-sponsored activities are eligible for this recognition program. The Academic Team Award program provides high school students with the opportunity to prove they can be overwhelmingly successful in both academics as well as in athletic and fine arts activities. All varsity athletic teams and fine arts groups that achieve a combined grade point average of 3.0 or higher are eligible to receive an SDHSAA Academic Achievement Team Award. The Faith High School Student Council received this recognition. Also in our area, the Bison HS boys and girls track teams were recognized.

State High School Rodeo results
The 2013 South Dakota High School Rodeo finals were held last week, June 19-23 at the Roundup grounds in Belle Fourche. Area contestants fought hard for the spots to go to the national finals in Rock Springs, Wyo. in July. Scores were affected by the heavy rains, especially for the short go. Point scoring for the finals includes 15 places. First place is given 15 points down to 15th place which is awarded one point. In instances where there is the same score the points are totaled and then divided equally. The first and second rounds each had 15 placings; the short go had 10. Average winners are based upon totaled scores from the three rounds. The champion and runner-up spots are chosen by the total of all the points earned during the season plus, those at the finals. The top four contestants from each event move on to the national finals. In some cases, while a contestant may not have had the best state finals, the had enough season points to place them in the top 15 of total points for the year.

The Prairie Doc Perspective
Dr. Richard Holms, MD
There is an old German folk tale about Ondine, a beautiful young water nymph who fell in love with a handsome mortal. Her lover promised, “My every waking breath is a testimony of my love,” and yet later Ondine discovered the mortal to be unfaithful. Her father the nymph king then placed a curse on the fickle lover making his breathing a conscious and not automatic process. Thus, if the mortal should fall asleep, he would forget to breath. Eventually Ondine’s cursed lover succumbed to complete exhaustion, fell asleep, and died. The name “Ondine’s Curse” was first used in 1962 to describe three brain surgery patients who died resulting from the loss of the autonomic drive to breath during sleep. The name subsequently came to be used to describe a rare congenital syndrome in babies with a similar inadequate breathing drive. More recently experts advise the name Ondine’s Curse be dropped since the word “curse” implies wrongdoing and guilt to the parents of these unfortunate babies. I think this story better relates to the broad category of conditions called sleep apnea, which involves troubled breathing while asleep. The word apnea actually means “no breath” or “breathless.” Less than one percent of patients with sleep apnea is due to weakness of the brain-controlled autonomic drive to breath, called central apnea; 85 percent is due to floppy-fatty airways that ob-

The curse of Ondine

struct breathing, called obstructive apnea; and the rest is due to a combination of central and obstructive causes, called complex apnea. Whichever the type, sleep apnea can be a dangerous, even deadly condition, resulting in excessive daytime sleepiness, depression, anger and irritability, memory loss, and even strokes. What’s more, prolonged low-oxygen causes increased risk for high blood pressure, congestive heart failure, heart attack, and sudden death. Clues for this serious condition include high blood pressure, morning headaches, sudden awakening with shortness of breath, observed spells of breathing cessation, especially in people who are obese, loud snorers, smokers, or sedated by alcohol or sleeping meds. Then again sometimes there is little warning and sleep apnea is a silent killer. If you or your spouse could have sleep apnea, see your doctor. You wouldn’t want to have Ondine’s curse.

Twenty-nine House members support mistreatment of family farmers and ranchers
Washington, D.C. - A barricade has been erected by the U.S. House of Representatives that supports the mistreatment of U.S. family farmers and ranchers. Up until now the congressional obstruction was carried out secretly behind closed doors. For the first time, however, a roll-call vote was recently taken that reveals which members of Congress are working for the multinational meatpackers. They work to guarantee that family farmers and ranchers have no recourse when meatpackers engage in wrongful actions such as retaliation, fraud, bad faith, and denial of due process. These wrongful actions are driving tens of thousands of family farmers and ranchers out of business each year. "We now know the names of these Congressional members who work at the behest of these meatpackers that are trying to force independent livestock producers out of business so they can take control of our food supply," said R-CALF USA CEO Bill Bullard. These meatpacker-beholden members of Congress include: Robert Aderholt (R-Ala.), Rodney Alexander (R- La.), Sanford Bishop, (D-Ga.), Jo Bonner (RAla.), Ken Calvert (R-Calif.), Tom Cole (R-Okla.), Ander Crenshaw (R-Fla.), Henry Cuellar (DTexas), John Culberson (RTexas), Charlie Dent (R-Pa.), Chuck Fleischmann (R-Tenn.), Jeff Fortenberry (R-Neb.), Rodney Frelinghuysen (R-N.J.), Kay Granger (R-Texas), Tom Graves (R-Ga.), Andy Harris (R-Md.), David Joyce (R-Ohio), Jack Kingston (R-Ga.), Tom Latham (R-Iowa), Alan Nunnelee (RMiss.), Bill Owens (D-N.Y.), Ed Pastor (D-Ariz.), Harold Rogers (R-Ky.), Tom Rooney (R-Fla.), Mike Simpson (R-Idaho), David Valadao (R-Calif.), Frank Wolf (R-Va.), Steve Womack (R-Ark.), and Keven Yoder (R-Kan.). Their stealthy work began with the 2012 Agriculture Appropriations Bill. The U.S. House included a meatpacker-protection rider that prohibited the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) from finalizing rules to prohibit meatpackers from retaliating against livestock and poultry producers who complain to USDA or to their members of Congress regarding unfair or unlawful treatment. In addition, the rider prohibited USDA from finalizing rules to stop meatpackers from engaging in fraud, bad faith, denial of due process and other unfair, deceptive or discriminatory practices. Similar meatpackerprotection language was slipped into the 2013 Agriculture Appropriations Bill. Shamelessly, the U.S. House Committee on Appropriations has recently voted to again include the meatpackerprotection rider in the 2014 Agriculture Appropriations Bill that will soon be voted on by the entire U.S. House. Not surprisingly, the meatpacker-protection rider  (Amendment No. 7) was sponsored by Republican Representative Steve Womack of Arkansas. Tyson Fresh Meats, Inc., the largest beef packer in the United States, is headquartered in Arkansas. According to Bullard, the 25 Republican and 4 Democrat Representatives who voted 29 to 17 to pass the meatpacker-protection rider do not support family farmers and ranchers. "Quite to the contrary, what they propose essentially authorizes multinational meatpackers to continue to engage in retaliation, fraud, denial of due process, and bad faith. Their actions will authorize these multinational meatpackers to continue to run rough shod over the hard-working U.S. farmers and ranchers with no fear of consequences," said Bullard. On Tuesday, the White House reportedly stated that it would veto the 2014 Agriculture Appropriations Bill due to budget cuts for the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS). "Like the failed House version of the 2013 Farm Bill that also included language to protect the appalling and abusive actions of the meatpackers, the U.S. House, the U.S. Senate, and the White House should again reject completely the efforts of beholden congressional members to assist their meatpacker buddies in the exploitation of U.S. farmers and ranchers," concluded Bullard.

Area supporters donate over $20,000 to R-CALF USA during Ft. Pierre rollover auction
Longtime R-CALF USA members Dean and Delia Johnson of Fairburn, S.D. recently donated a calf for an R-CALF USA rollover sale. The final amount raised for the one-day event was $21,300. All proceeds from this event will go directly to helping protect the rights of U.S. independent cattle producers. The sale was hosted by Ft. Pierre Livestock Auction in Ft. Pierre, S.D. Ft. Pierre Livestock Auction hosts numerous fundraisers and meetings for R-CALF USA each year. Bryan Hanson, co-owner of Ft. Pierre Livestock and R-CALF USA Vice President and Region III Director, said, "I believe that all producers should have a voice when it comes to their livelihood. R-CALF USA not only gives them a voice, but keeps them informed of the many issues facing our industry."    Dean and Delia Johnson said they support R-CALF USA "because we know for the cattle industry to have any hope of survival we had to have a national voice, one that was heard and respected on Capitol Hill.  We found that in R-CALF USA.   "We decided if we donated a calf every year when we sold we might be able to help out just a little.  It doesn't seem like much, but maybe it encourages others to take part in supporting the organization as well." They continued, "And hearing the sale barn talk about the sale just puts R-CALF on the front burner so to speak, keeps people thinking about R-CALF, the battles we are fighting and the ones we've won.  As an industry we did not get in this position overnight and we won't fix it overnight. We just need to hang in there."

USDA/Farm Service Agency News
The Dewey, Meade & Ziebach County FSA offices would like to keep you informed of the following items important to USDA programs. If you have any questions please contact the Dewey County office at 865-3522 ext 2, Meade County at 347-4952 ext 2, or Ziebach County at 365-5179 ext 2. IMPORTANT DATES TO REMEMBER: AUGUST 1 – COC nomantions close AUGUST 2 – Last day to signup for DCP NAP Coverage Available for 2014 Annual Forage Crops South Dakota FSA will offer Noninsured Crop Disaster Assistance Program (NAP) coverage for 2014 crops that are planted annually and used for livestock feed or fodder. The Risk Management Agency (FSA) recently announced a pilot program that offers a CAT level Rainfall Index-Annual Forage Insurance Plan to producers in Texas, Kansas, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma and South Dakota. Because there is limited time for producers in these states to transition from NAP to the new RMA pilot program, an exception was made that will allow the states to continue offering NAP coverage for 2014. However, NAP coverage will not be available for 2015 annual forage crops. Eligible producers can apply for 2014 NAP coverage at their County FSA Office using form CCC-471, Application for Coverage. Producers must file the application and service fee by the September 30, 2013 deadline for fall seeded rye for forage and March 15, 2014 deadline for spring seeded crops and grass for hay and graze. The service fee is the lesser of $250 per crop or $750 per producer per administrative county, not to exceed a total of $1,875 for a producer with farming interests in multiple counties. Producers who meet the definition of a limited resource farmer or rancher can request a waiver of the service fee. NAP provides financial assistance to producers of noninsurable crops when low yields, loss of inventory or prevented planting occur due to normal disasters. "The easiest way for producers to protect their investment is to purchase an insurance policy," "The past few years have proved that natural disasters are unavoidable, and producers can recover if they take the necessary precautions to mitigate risks." For more information about NAP, please contact your FSA County office or visit www.fsa.usda.gov.

Grasshopper inspection
The South Dakota Department of Agriculture is urging land owners to take the necessary steps now to manage grasshopper populations. “Since April snowstorms led to a late onset of spring and May rains pushed back planting, producers now find themselves at the start of haying season,” said South Dakota Secretary of Agriculture Lucas Lentsch. “In the hustle and bustle of the next month, it is important to remember that now is the best time to scout for grasshoppers.” Each summer, South Dakota faces the possibility of destructive grasshopper outbreaks. Predicting these outbreaks before they occur is very challenging and early scouting is the key to grasshopper management. “The dry conditions in the summer of 2012 may have actually helped reduce the outbreak

potential for this summer,” said Mike Stenson with the South Dakota Department of Agriculture (SDDA). Later hatching species had limited green vegetation needed for growth and eventually egg laying. In some cases, extreme heat can actually lead to nymphal mortality. This year’s cool wet spring will aid in the suppression of early hatching species by increasing the presence of bacteria and disease within the grasshopper population. “Even though Mother Nature

has been on our side and a large scale outbreak is unlikely, it is still important to check your own fields and pastures for newly hatching grasshoppers,” said Stenson. Grasshoppers go through five nymphal or instar stages before they reach adulthood and sexual maturity. During the nymphal stages the grasshoppers are very susceptible to environmental conditions as well as pesticide treatment practices. Once they reach adulthood they begin laying eggs almost immediately and become much harder to kill. Although treating adults that are actively laying eggs might curb current feeding damage, it will not break the life cycle or produce benefits in subsequent years.

“Reports are coming in of grasshoppers hatching in the southern most South Dakota counties,” said Stenson. “If the hatch continues at a normal pace, the last two weeks of June will be the perfect time for grasshopper control activities.” The South Dakota Department of Agriculture and USDA - Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service will be collaborating to keep the public abreast of the current grasshopper situation and provide producers with information on grasshopper treatment options specific to their operation. For more information on grasshopper control in South Dakota, please contact Mike Stenson with the SD Department of Agriculture at 605-773-3796.

10 reasons why Congress must act to pass a Food, Farm and Jobs Bill
Getting a Food, Farm and Jobs Bill passed this year is essential – and it can’t fall victim to politics as usual. Too much is at stake, and too many people lose out if Congress can’t act.  Here are 10 good reasons why Congress must take action as soon as possible to achieve passage of a Farm Bill this year:  1. America’s farmers, ranchers and producers need certainty about the next five years of U.S. farm policy, to continue the recent momentum of the U.S. agricultural economy and rising farm income. 2. Livestock producers need disaster assistance applied retroactively, in light of a longterm drought that has forced the liquidation of herds to the lowest level in decades. 3. Dairy producers need an effective support system that helps them to stem the decline in the number of U.S. dairy operations. 4. Farmers, landowners and forest owners need streamlined conservation programs that will make a more efficient and effective use of limited conservation funds, while building on record conservation efforts underway today. 5. Organic and specialty crop producers need renewed and expanded access to Farm Bill programs that have fueled the growth of a multibillion dollar industry in direct-to-consumer sales. 6. Researchers and students at Land Grant Universities need support to meet modern challenges in agriculture and carry out the innovation we need to sustainably increase agricultural production. A new, nonprofit research foundation provided by a Food, Farm and Jobs Bill could leverage millions of dollars of private sector funding to provide this assistance. 7. Job seekers in rural America need new and expanded investments in renewable energy, biofuel, and biobased product manufacturing, all of which can create jobs in rural areas. 8. Beginning producers – including a growing number of veterans returning to the land – need technical assistance, credit and affordable crop insurance to get started and keep growing. This is especially important as we seek to reverse the rising average age of America’s farm population. 9. Producers and small business owners need a resolution of the Brazil cotton dispute that if left unsolved, threatens hundreds of millions of dollars annually in tariff penalties against U.S. agricultural products and other American-made goods. 10. And anyone who is concerned about the Federal deficit needs a Food, Farm and Jobs Bill that provides meaningful deficit reduction. These all are good reasons why a Food, Farm and Jobs Bill can’t wait. Americans across the country are impacted by this important legislation, and Congress must achieve passage of a Food, Farm and Jobs Bill as soon as possible.

Lightfield made a motion, seconded by Hellekson to retire into executive session at 7:48 PM. Mayor Haines stepped out of the meeting and Karen Inghram took over as president. Inghram declared the Council out of executive session at 8:41 PM. Year End Financials: Lightfield made a motion, seconded by Hellekson to approve the 2012 year end financials. All yes votes. Motion carried. Approve purchase of Software: When the computer technician came to set up the new computer at the Lone Tree Bar, the company who we purchased the software from prior for the bar inventory system is not a company any longer and the software is not available. New software is needed as well as other equipment from the new computer to the register. Also, the mother board in one of the registers has been damaged. The computer technician felt that it was probably due to a lightning storm that happened Memorial Day weekend and the computer and register mother board should be turned in to the insurance. Riley made a motion, seconded by Inghram to purchase the software and associated costs that will incur loading the new software and equipment. All yes votes. Motion carried. Approve Purchase of Equipment: Donn Dupper found out that the mowers purchased last year will not hook up to the tractors that the City currently has. Surplus property had a 1995 Case 4210 tractor available for $5,000. Dupper stated that there was also a 2003 Kawasaki Mule available for $500 that could be used for spraying mosquitoes and other various things. Inghram made a motion, seconded by Lightfield to purchase the tractor and mule. All yes votes. Motion carried. Dupper also stated that the street sweeper is not working and is not worth repairing. He has been looking at some that the parts from this sweeper would be useable on a different model. Dupper suggests to cut back on the street project and purchase the street sweeper. Inghram made a motion, seconded by Berndt to bid out for a street sweeper and open at the first meeting in August. All yes votes. Motion carried. The air conditioner outside unit at the library has been damaged and turned in to the insurance. Joel Afdahl was called to look at the unit and he stated that it is too damaged to comb it out and that if a new outside unit wasn’t replaced soon, it would damage the unit that is in the ceiling and would have to be taken out from the roof. The estimate was $4,500 for the unit, Freon $250 and labor $200. Riley made a motion, seconded by Berndt to accept the purchase of the air conditioner unit. All yes votes. Motion carried. Elected Officials Workshop: The Elected Officials Workshop is July 24th in Pierre and any Councilman that wants to go needs to let the office know. Dust Control – Mag Water: Lightfield stated she had a call about people not wanting the magnesium chloride water put on the gravel road. Bill Hibner stated that he was the one who called an has talked with several neighbors who are all in favor of not having the magnesium chloride water put down as it is corrosive to vehicles. When it rains, the magnesium water does not hold and since it has been raining he feels that it would be a waste of money. Hibner would like to put the money used for the mag water towards paving or chip sealing the road a ways if necessary. Inghram stated she does not want that so it looks like she is the only one getting the benefit. After much discussion, Lightfield made a motion, seconded by Riley to rescind the motion made on June 4th to approve the mag-

nesium water. Four -yes votes. Berndt and Inghram – no. Motion carried. Berndt made a motion, seconded by Hellekson to do a feasibility study for paving or chip sealing area roads of the City’s that are graveled. Five – yes votes. Inghram – no. Motion carried. Airport – Door lock at Airport: Mike Merriman would like a keypad lock out at the airport lounge that could be keyed to what code pilots would know and he would donate a computer. The cost would be around $150. Spencer made a motion, seconded by Lightfield to approve the keypad lock. All yes votes. Motion carried. Pool kids – extra help: Lightfield made a motion, seconded by Berndt to approve the pool kids being able to water plants for the City to get a few extra hours since they all are not getting many hours. Motion carried. Ice House: Discussion was held in regards to how soon the repairs will be done on the ice house and what can be done to clean the inside of the ice house. City Mowing Specifications: After much discussion on better specifications and not having to be told when the mowing can be done, the issue was dropped. Quote for Dock at the Lake: Bob Linn Construction submitted the following quote for the cement work that needed to be done for the boat ramp landing by the dock at Durkee Lake: $5,500 for a 65’X14’x6” w/24” o.c. ½” rebar and City will remove existing material.
