This year’s Midland summer reading program’s theme was “Reading Is Our ‘Thing’.” The meetings were held each Wednes-
day morning in June. Books read were written by Dr. Suess, Richard Scarry, Margret and H.A. Rey (Curious George), and
Stan and Jan Berenstain (Berenstain Bears). Each session began with story time, then on to crafts, singing/dancing, snacks
and finally a visit to the Midland Library to check out books/movies. On the final day, a nature scavenger hunt was held at
the Midland City Park. Kids are, back row, from left: Tukker Boe, Cole Finn, Dane Daly, Jet Jones, Kaitlyn Fosheim and Jada

A new law making it illegal for
young drivers to use a cell phone
while driving took effect July 1.
The law, passed by the 2013 leg-
islature, prohibits anyone who
holds a learner’s permit or a re-
stricted minor’s permit from using
any handheld communication de-
vice while driving. Generally, such
permits are issued to persons be-
tween the ages of 14 and 18.
“Young people still gaining expe-
rience with driving really need to
avoid any distractions,’’ said Jenna
Howell, director of legal and regu-
latory services for Public Safety.
“Driving is a full-time responsibil-
ity 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 at-
tention to the road.’’
A learner or instruction permit
allows the holder to drive between
the hours of 6:00 a.m. and 10:00
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 be-
side the young driver.
A restricted minor’s permit al-
lows the holder to drive between
6:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m. with per-
mission of a parent or guardian.
The holder of a restricted minor’s
permit may drive between the
hours of 10:00 p.m. and 6:00 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 an-
other offense before a ticket could
be issued for driving while using a
handheld communications device.
Cell phone ban for young drivers effective July 1
Each month KCBA is hosting a
“Cash Mob” at local businesses,
which was held at Petrified Gar-
dens this month.
Everyone is invited and encour-
aed to attend the “Cash Mob”.
“Touring the businesses in
Kadoka helps area residents see
what services are offered and mer-
chandise that is available to pur-
chase. We are hoping to bring
attention to what each business
has, that otherwise you may not
know about,” said KCBA member
Sarah VanderMay.
“Part of our goal through KCBA
is to promote shopping locally.” she
added. “Supporting our local busi-
ness helps everyone.”
The June the KCBA “Cash Mob”
was held at Badlands Petrified
Gardens on Wednesday, June 26.
Bob and Kathy Fugate gave com-
plimentary tours of the gardens to
all local customers during the mob.
This also gave local shoppers the
opportunity to see what Petrified
Gardens has to offer. The Fugate
family is proud and honored to
have shared the beautiful collec-
tion of petrified wood, fluorescent
minerals, and fossils. Please stop
by and tour the Gardens and view
the extensive collection. Local resi-
dents may receive a complimentary
tour throughout the season.
The South Central RC&D and
the South Dakota Center for
Farm/Ranch Management (SD-
CFRM) are sponsoring an informa-
tional meeting on Friday, July 12,
at 6:00 p.m. MDT at Club 27 in
Kadoka. This meeting will provide
information to producers from the
Badlands/South Central Enter-
prise Facilitation service area who
may be eligible for scholarships if
they enroll in either the Level 1 or
Level 2 Management program.
Farmers/ranchers who enroll in
the program will benefit from keep-
ing complete, accurate records
which can be used when making
management decisions, and for de-
veloping records management sys-
tems for use with bankers and
lending agencies. Farmers/ranch-
ers will increase their knowledge of
the strengths and weaknesses of
their business with exact business
progress in just one year. They will
also gain understanding of a cash
flow statement, net worth and
profit and loss statements.
The SDCFRM program was es-
tablished in 1975 and is designed
to assist farmers/ranchers with
one-on-one on-site instruction. This
program meets the FSA require-
ment for borrower training.

Read Luke 12:13-21
The belief that wealth equals success is a common mis-
conception. True success means becoming who God
wants you to be and doing the work He has prepared for
you to accomplish. Jesus said the man in Luke 12 was a fool because he spent his life pursuing wealth but
was not rich toward the Lord.
An idolatrous attitude about money is revealed by an insatiable desire for more, and materialism affects
rich and poor alike. So whenever financial concerns have top priority in our thoughts and begin to dictate
goals and desires, we can know we’ve succumbed to the foolishness of greed. Worrying about finances is ac-
tually a warning sign of not only misplaced priorities but also lack of trust in God.
Money is a vital part of our lives, but it should never come to have a higher place than the Lord intends.
Everything belongs to God. We are merely stewards of all that He entrusts to us, and one day we’ll give an
account to Him of how we have used what He gave us to oversee. Our goal shouldn’t be to become wealthy
but, rather, to be found faithful.
In His great wisdom, the Lord has prescribed a remedy for our tendency to overvalue money. Giving it
away breaks the grip of greed, teaches us to trust and obey God, and is an avenue through which treasure
can be stored in heaven.
If you hunger for worldly riches more than the riches of knowing God, you’re climbing the wrong ladder
of success. Eternal blessing is measured by a relationship with Jesus, not accumulation of money. Make Him
your top priority and chief joy, and you’ll know true prosperity.

Summer Reading Program
The Summer Reading Program
is held at the Jackson County Li-
brary on Wednesday mornings at
10:00 a.m. Children 2-6 yrs and 7-
12 are welcome!
Come join the fun!
The Summer Reading Program is in full swing with the theme “Dig Into Reading”. Children from 2-12 have been gathering at 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday mornings
for an hour to enjoy a story, activities, crafts and more. Last week, children of all ages had fun with earthworms (measuring them before the worm races) and
planting seeds so we will see the roots grow “underground”. Activities support learning and encourage reading throughout the summer, which is important in main-
taining consistency in student academics. But here at the library, it’s just plain FUN!

God is an artist with light and
color. Take the morning last week
when the eastern sky was loaded
with lots of small puffy clouds. As
the sun came up, it turned the tops
and edges of those puffballs into
brilliant whites and silvers which
contrasted nicely with their gray-
ish undersides. I just sipped my
morning coffee, sat on the deck,
and watched until the sun got high
enough to turn all that splendor
back into simple fluffy white
clouds against a deep-blue back-
ground. I enjoyed the play of light
and color so much that I was some-
what reluctant to trudge back in-
side and start the day.
I’ve always been a major fan of
nice sunrises and sunsets although
I’ve probably seen more sets than
rises do to my tendency to be a
night owl. I’ve missed quite a few
sunrises in consequence. When I
was doing a lot of photography a
number of years ago, sunsets were
one of my favorite subjects, espe-
cially when I could find something
interesting to silhouette against
the pinks, reds, and oranges of the
clouds. I got to be pretty good at
predicting when a particularly
showy sunset was about to happen
so I could grab my camera and be
in a prime location for snapping
the shutter. Horses, trees and
yucca plants were some of my fa-
vorite things to capture as dark ob-
jects against bright colors. Other
people must like that sort of thing
as well since I sold a lot of sunset
photos for a number of years. I had
a major advantage in taking such
pictures because I lived on a hill in
the middle of nowhere from where
I could see the entire sky and
prairie, and without a lot of build-
ings and power lines to get in the
way. I did sometimes cuss the jet
jockeys who made artificial
straight white streaks in the mid-
dle of otherwise nice sunsets.
I also learned, sometimes the
hard way, that color has a temper-
ature which is rated by photogra-
phers on the Kelvin scale. Kelvin
is sometimes shortened to K. A
temperature of 5,000K is cool or
bluish, and lower numbers like
2,500 or 3,000K are warmer with
red, pink or orange. During the
day, normal sunshine colors are
cooler, but they warm up towards
sunset so people might turn out or-
ange in a photo instead of being a
more appropriate skin color. This
change isn’t always obvious to the
eye since we mentally make an ad-
justment, but photographic film
captures what is there and some-
times the effect is not flattering to
human subjects. With sunsets,
though, the hotter and neater the
colors, the better the effect.
Well, this morning wasn’t so
great as far as sunrises go since
there was too much overcast for a
good show. Instead, I had to look
elsewhere for enjoyable colors.
That wasn’t too hard. On the hill-
side, there was still a mass of
white daisies with yellow centers.
They are winding down their big
display of the year, but they’re still
nice along with the few remaining
blue and purple larkspur which
were really showy for a while. The
hollyhocks are just now getting
started and promise a lot of color
shortly since they are thriving this
year. In the background are quite
a few yucca blossoms intermixed
with a few yellow cacti and sun-
flowers. Closer are the potted
plants on the deck. These include
a scarlet geranium and four lan-
tana of various hues. Lantanas are
favorites of wife Corinne right now
since they are unique in their flow-
ering. Their blossoms start one
color such as yellow or white and
then slowly turn maybe to pink or
to orange or red. They usually
have several colors on the same
plant at the same time which is
rather neat.
When I’m out strolling on the
prairie, my favorite wild posies are
probably the pinks. This would in-
clude wild roses and morning glo-
ries. There are also some blues and
oranges that are nothing to scoff at
and some whites and yellows. I
even rejoice when all there is to see
is a whole sea of green or tan grass
stretching way out to meet the
blue sky at the horizon. This may
appear a desolate expanse to some,
but to me it is close to heaven.
So, in my opinion, God is a mas-
terful artist with an excellent eye
for design and color. He tends to
turn out one masterpiece right
after another. I often remark about
this to him and express my grati-
tude. What’s more, they tell me
that beauty is good for the soul so
it probably behooves us to observe
as much of it as possible. It often is
right there in front of us, and all
we have to do is look. I wonder
what eye-catchers are out there
today? I’d better keep my eyes
Lookin’ Around
by Syd Iwan
The annual Belvidere school re-
union was held on Sunday at the
church hall beginning with a noon-
ish potluck. It progressed from
there to a lot of visiting and a busi-
ness meeting. Some fifty people
were in attendance and about 30
graduates. Some came from quite a
distance such as Buck Carrico from
Arizona and Ross Albin from Pow-
ell, WY. Lenny Sanftner was re-
elected as president of the alumni
organization and Joanne Letellier
as secretary. The group voted to
change the name of their annual
gathering from being a school re-
union to the “Belvidere Community
Gathering.” This was so people
from the area will feel more wel-
come to attend even if they hadn’t
gone to school in town. Lenny said
that if maybe you had just driven
by the school some time or knew
someone who had, you could still
feel welcome to attend. Since the
high school closed in 1966, time is
thinning out the ranks of alumni,
but there are still quite a few of
them and they enjoy getting to-
gether and remembering old times.
To that end, Crystal Paulson has
put together a bunch of photos of
Belvidere going way back, and she
had a power-point display of them
being projected onto a wall during
the reunion. Lenny reports every-
one having quite a good time.
Merry Willard had the misfor-
tune of being bitten on the hand by
a rattlesnake on Monday. She was
weeding her flowers when she felt
a sharp pain and looked down in
time to see the little snake sneak-
ing back into a space between some
cement blocks where he’d been hid-
ing. Chuck had just returned to the
hayfield with some repairs he’d
gotten in Philip, so Merry got in the
pickup and went out to tell him
she’d been bitten. Chuck thought
maybe they should return to Philip
to the hospital without delay so
they were soon on the way. Chuck
said he drove fairly moderately
until Merry mentioned something
about her tongue tingling a little
and it being more difficult to swal-
low. At that point, they found out
the maximum speed of their car is
only 108 MPH. At Philip, they ad-
ministered antivenin and admitted
Merry to the hospital. She stayed
there until Wednesday since her
hand continued to swell some from
time to time. By Sunday, though,
she was pretty much back to nor-
mal and felt good enough to attend
church in Belvidere. Merry said it
was probably lucky the rattler was
small and only had one fang, but
that was bad enough to go on. She
appreciated all the calls and visits
from people who showed their love
and concern.
Dolores Obr had all four of her
daughters around this weekend.
Keitha came from Alpena, Marj
and her husband, Marv, from Cook,
MN, Elaine from Rapid City, and
Crystal from almost next door. The
gals were here in part to attend the
school reunion but also to visit with
each other and their mom. Keitha
and Marj both graduated from
Belvidere High School, but Elaine
had only finished her junior year
when the school closed. She fin-
ished high school at Wessington
Springs Academy which then also
closed the year after she gradu-
ated. Crystal was a Kadoka gradu-
ate. Elaine came on Friday and had
time to do some mowing for her
mom. On Saturday, some of the
gals went for a drive and ended up
having supper at Cedar Pass
Betty Kusick was visited this
week by her daughter, Loretta
Schreiber, and her husband,
Lawrence, of Quinn. They did some
mowing and also put a new fence
around her garden which is doing
fine this year thanks to some de-
cent rains.
Ruth Ann Niehoff and her son,
Andrew, have been in the area for
a couple of weeks now and plan to
stay for a good bit of the summer.
Ruth Ann and her mom, Kate De-
Vries, naturally attended the
school reunion on Sunday since
Kate was the secretary and major
contact person for that event for
many years. Ruth Ann said she
was glad to have Andrew with her
since she’d pinched a nerve in her
back and had to move carefully.
This was also fortunate when they
needed supplies in Rapid City, and
Andrew could do the driving. Nei-
ther was real happy with driving in
Rapid since Andrew didn’t know
the town, and, although Ruth Ann
did, she had to be content with just
giving directions. Andrew has now
finished serving in the Marine
Corp for five years and is thinking
somewhat of returning to school
this fall.
Michelle and Tyrel Mansfield
were in Rapid City all week visit-
ing Michelle’s folks, Bill and
Pauline Jones. She had brothers
home from Wisconsin and Georgia
who came in part to help her folks
celebrate their birthdays which fall
within a week of each other. Aaron
Mansfield went up for the week-
end, and Jim and Fayola went up
for the surprise birthday party on
Saturday. They took part of the
catered supper which served quite
a few people. Fayola said Jim is re-
covering well from his recent heart
attack in Iowa, and they are both
glad to be back home safely in one
Marie Addison gained another
great grandson on June 20 when
her grandson, Lex Geer (Beryl’s
son), and his wife, Amanda, had a
son. He was named Perry Lee Geer
after relatives on both sides of the
family. This was Marie’s 23rd great
grandchild and joins 21 grandchil-
dren and 8 children. Three more
great grandchildren are due before
the end of the year.
Eve Fortune had some leg sur-
gery in Scotts Bluff, NE, recently.
This was to correct a condition
caused when some blood vessels
were scarred when she was burned
some years ago. The Novocain used
to deaden things might have been
as painful as surgery would have
been without it.
Art and Joyce Glynn of Rapid
City attended the school reunion on
Sunday as they do most years.
Joyce graduated from Belvidere
High School in 1949. They had
been in White River overnight Sat-
urday with Art’s sister-in-law,
Rosie Glynn. While there, they at-
tended a rodeo in memory of
Rosie’s grandson, Michael Glynn,
who died in an alcohol-related car
accident on the day of his gradua-
tion from high school. The rodeo
was put on in his memory and also
to remind young people about the
dangers of alcohol. Joyce said the
rodeo was interesting with young
kids riding ponies and younger
than that on sheep. Saturday was
a beautiful evening for a rodeo. Art
and Joyce also took in the Kadoka
reunion last week since some mem-
bers of the McRae family were
there and are related to Joyce.
Their grandmothers were sisters.
The Glynns stayed overnight with
the Orville Josserands when they
were around last weekend.

lard’s Sunday evening and the two
gals enjoyed supper together.
Monday the James Letellier’s
made a trip to Martin for lawn
mower parts. The mower has really
gotten a work out this year.
Tafts made trips to Martin for
parts on Monday and Tuesday.
Wednesday afternoon, Susan and
Samantha went to Philip to get
something repaired. They are still
waiting on that. When everything
is working they are busy haying.
Tuesday Heather, Samantha and
Morgan made a trip to Pierre.
Heather kept an appointment
while there.
Tuesday afternoon, Erica, Andee
and Cassie Beckwith of Pierre ar-
rived at the home of their grand-
parents, James and Marjorie Anne
Letellier. The gals finally had the
same day off so they could come
down for a visit. Erica is a SD State
Park attendant at Farm Island,
and they all three work for the
Rillings Produce in Pierre. It had
rained so they got time off. Jason,
JaLynn, Beaver, Jade, Jakki and
Jimmy Burma and Julie Letellier
of Kilgore and Sue Larson of Rapid
City were all supper guests of the
Letelliers that evening. The gals
spent the night and left early the
next morning.
Our young people (gals and guys
alike) are busy this summer; be-
tween summer basketball leagues
(White River has two teams) and
baseball leagues at Mission. Little
Richard Charging Hawk pitches for
his own age group in a baseball
league at Mission and then turns
around and is the catcher for the
older age group. Our kids are in
great demand in the hay fields, too.
Maxine Allard enjoys visits from
folks on the phone, which is the
next best thing to being there. This
week she received a call from long-
time friend Jim Koeger of Valen-
Morgan Taft was a guest at the
Shane and Lisa Bryan home one
day this week to help Laura cele-
brate her birthday.
A large crowd of friends and
neighbors were helping Evan and
Dorothy Bligh brand on Friday.
The branders were treated to the
traditional delicious beef dinner by
Dan Taft, and daughters,
Heather, Samantha and Morgan,
were among those helping brand at
Bligh’s on Friday.
Mike Ring of Highmore was
home for the weekend and spent
his time being handy man for his
mom, Janice Ring. We all could use
a guy like that.
Saturday afternoon, Gale and
JoAnn Letellier hosted a birthday
party for Marjorie Letellier at the
Silver Leaf in Philip. Those helping
Marjorie celebrate her 90th birth-
day besides her husband, Bill, and
her friends at the Silver Leaf were:
Gary and Jerry Letellier, Cooper
and Hailey Letellier, James and
Marjorie Anne Letellier, Maxine Al-
lard, Carol Ferguson and Sharon
Ring. Birthday cake and fresh
strawberries were served. A fun
time of reminiscing was held. Mar-
jorie Letellier was born at Rosebud
and until recently was a lifetime
resident of the Norris community.
If it happened at Norris, Marjorie
was definitely a part everything
from Extension Club, Flying Farm-
ers, Frontier Twirlers Square
Dance Club and St. John Lutheran
Church. She and her husband
loved to travel the world over, but
always called Norris home.
Maxine Allard accompanied
James and Marjorie Anne Letellier
to Philip on Saturday for the 90th
birthday party for Marjorie Letel-
lier. The lovely deep green country-
side made for a very enjoyable trip.
Even seeing lots of big round bales
is a joy this year. Maxine said, “You
sure can’t call the Badlands bad
this year.” Every inch that could
grow an bit of green grass is doing
it it even on the badlands and the
Yucca and other wild plants are
doing their best to make their pres-
ence known, too. We all feel so
blessed we can hardly contain our-
selves after last years drought.
Sunday morning JoAnn Letel-
lier attended the Belvidere Alumni
picnic and meeting at the Fellow-
ship Hall. Alumni officers for the
group are Lenny Sanftner as Pres-
ident and JoAnn Letellier, Secre-
Master Gardener JoAnn Letel-
lier arrived home just in time to
greet a group of twenty folks from
Martin, who arrived to tour her
beautiful yard. They enjoyed lunch
before returning home after what I
am sure was a delightful time.
Sunday after church, Evan and
Dorothy Bligh made a trip to Wess-
ington Springs to help his mother,
Marjorie Bligh celebrate her 92nd
birthday. Happy birthday, Mar-
jorie, hope your day was as special
as you are! Marjorie Bligh was a
very important part of our Norris
Community for many years.
Services were held for Charity
(Kaufman) Weiss, 91 at the St.
John Lutheran Church at Norris
on Monday morning, July 1 at
10:30 a.m. Our hearts go out to her
dear family and many friends at
this sad time of loss. Charity and
her husband. Harold Weiss. called
Norris home for many years. Char-
ity worked for several years for the
Bureau of Indian Affairs at Rose-
bud. The last time we saw Charity;
we were on a bus tour and she was
feeding the burros along the road
in the Black Hills. I went up to the
car to visit with her and she had a
whole bag of apples and was cut-
ting them up to feed them. You can
take the gal out of the country but
you can’t take the country out of
the gal. What a dear lady!

Which Are You?
I watched them tear a building
A gang of men in a busy town.
With a mighty heave and lusty
They swung a beam and a side
wall fell.
I said to the foremen, “Are these
men skilled,
As the men you’d hire if you had
to build?”
He gave a laugh and said, “No
Just a common laborer is all I
And I can wreck in a day or two,
What it took the builder a year
to do.”
And I thought to myself as I
went my way,
“Just which of these roles have I
tried to play?
Am I a builder who works with
skill and care,
Building others up by the rule
and square,
Or am I a wrecker as I walk the
Content with the labor of tear-
ing down?”

Family and friends gathered to honor Marjorie Letellier for her 90th birthday on

the opportunity to witness the leg-
islative process, give Capitol tours,
and attend Senate votes and hear-
ings. Both in-state and Washing-
ton, D.C., internships will allow
students to work closely with con-
stituents, hone their research and
writing skills, and learn a multi-
tude of valuable office skills.
“Interning in a Senate office pro-
vides students with an excellent
opportunity to experience democ-
racy in action,” said Thune. “In-
terns gain valuable knowledge
about both state and national is-
sues and an understanding of the
inner workings of a Senate office. I
encourage all students to consider
applying for this rewarding experi-

Summer is finally here, with va-
cations, swimming, barbecues and
more. These great summer activi-
ties keep people busy – too busy,
sometimes, to donate blood.
It takes approximately 185 blood
donations every day to maintain an
adequate blood supply for area hos-
pital patients – patients who are
eager to return to their famiies and
the fun of summer.
The Philip area’s next blood
drive with United Blood Services is
Tuesday, July 9, from 10:30 a.m. to
5:00 p.m. at the Bad River Senior
Citizen’s Center in Philip. This
drive is especially important be-
cause it is being held in the sum-
mer. According to the Tea Timers
Club, this blood drive’s coordinat-
ing organization, blood drive par-
ticipation drops off considerably in
the summer months.
“It’s something we see every
summer,” Anita Peterson said.
“People simply are much busier
with outdoor fun and vacations
than they are at other times of the
year. Even though donors might
have other things to do, patients in
our area and throughout the nation
continue to need blood. It would be
great to see eligible donors give at
least three times a year, especially
once in the summer, to keep pa-
tients supplied with lifesaving
We urge residents to be heroes
and make time to save lives. Call
Peterson at 859-2304 to schedule
an appointment for this blood
drive. Those who are not able to do-
nate are encouraged to recruit oth-
ers in their place. Anyone inter-
ested in donating, or in coordinat-
ing a blood drive, may call 605-342-

A group of 14 South Dakota
teens trained with the South
Dakota Highway Patrol at the
Youth Trooper Academy in Pierre,
Monday through Friday, June 24-
Cosponsored by the American
Legion, the classes, driving and
hands-on experiences were done at
the South Dakota Law Enforce-
ment Training Academy. This is the
second year for the academy, which
is an intensive learning experience
for students ages 16 and 17 who
are entering their senior year of
high school. This year’s academy
finished with a graduation cere-
mony Friday afternoon.
“These young adults are exposed
to the rewards and structure we re-
quire for the patrol,” said Major
Rick Miller, assistant superintend-
ent with the highway patrol. “It’s a
great opportunity for us, too, be-
cause of the relationships we de-
velop with them.”
According to Jon Harms, deputy
public information officer, South
Dakota Department of Public
Safety, South Dakota Highway Pa-
trol, during the youth academy,
veteran highway patrol troopers
serve as mentors and chaperones
for the academy. Troopers and offi-
cers from other law enforcement
agencies throughout the state, pro-
vide classroom and hands-on train-
ing in firearms safety, defensive
driving, crash investigation, traffic
stops, leadership, police service dog
handling and criminal law.
Rick MacDonald, South Dakota
American Legion commander said,
“We’ve been able to bring a na-
tional level program to the young
adults in our state. The American
Legion and the South Dakota
Highway Patrol give our youth an
opportunity to experience first
hand what it’s like to train as a law
enforcement officer. It also gives
the patrol a view into the talent
who might apply for the squad over
the next few years.”
Recruit Jessica Smith, a Pierre
senior thinking about a career after
high school in law enforcement
said, “I really enjoyed this unique
opportunity and experience. My
goal was to get a better under-
standing about the way law en-
forcement and the academy
Chauncey Trapp, Midland, and
Gavin Brucklacher, Philip, were
two of the academy’s graduates.
Brucklacher came to the acad-
emy to see if he would like the
highway patrol, He plans to go to a
four year college next year and is
leaning toward trying to become a
game warden. Along with a long
list of extra curricular activities, he
also enjoys hunting.
“I really like this camp because it
is paramilitary and I am very or-
ganized. I’ve learned so much al-
ready,” said Brucklacher. “I was
able to attend Boys State earlier
this summer, which was sponsored
by the American Legion. They also
are cosponsoring this Youth
Trooper Academy, so I’m lucky to be
a part of both. I really appreciate
the American Legion.”
“I love this camp. On the first
day, I got to shake everyone’s hand.
After that, I knew it was special,”
stated Brucklacher.
Harms stated that it seemed the
highlight for Brucklacher was the
EVOC training (Emergency Vehicle
Operator Course). The students got
to handle the highway patrol car
and drive fast through the course.
Chauncey Trapp, Midland, completed this year’s South Dakota Highway Patrol
and American Legion Youth Trooper Academy. Shown, from left, are Colonel Craig
Price, Trapp and American Legion State Commander Rick MacDonald.

Samantha Nelson. Samantha is
the daughter of Dan and Marla

The visiting with everyone was
great also.
While I was at the Kadoka Nurs-

a little girl helping pass out snacks
to the residents. She went around
to all the residents about three
times. She had such a gentle, quiet
nature about her. It brought such
joy to my heart to see that this
child is being raised to respect oth-

the spray. The other sad part as

inches tall.
The parking lot in front is sure
bare a lot. Just a pickup and a car
are the only vehicles parked there.
I visited the nursing home last
week and enjoyed supper. I spent

Glen A. Bennett, Chairman
The S. D. Developmental Center, Red-
field, SD has billed Jackson County an
additional $60.00 for an accrued total of
$900.00 for client assessment. Jackson
County responded in June 2012 that
charges should be assessed to the ap-
propriate federal government agency as
per SDCL 27B-3-27. Stilwell moved,
Denke seconded, that the billing be de-
Lucy Lewno, Chair, Board of Yankton
County Mental Illness, has notified Jack-
son County that they will no longer be
holding mental illness hearings for any
Jackson County residents due to Jack-
son County’s denial of payment of mental
illness costs.
Vicki Wilson, Auditor, reported that a no-
tice of hospitalization was received from
Regional Behavioral Health. No action
was taken by the board at this time.
S. D. Human Services Center, Yankton,
re-billed Jackson County $600.00 for
mental illness costs. No action was taken
as the bill was denied in May.
Lincoln County presented a billing for
mental illness costs on a person that is
eligible for IHS benefits. Stilwell moved,
Denke seconded, that the billing from
Lincoln County in the amount of $468.75
be denied.
Discussion was held on holding a special
meeting to review 2014 budget requests.
The board decided to meet on Wednes-
day, June 26th at 1:00 p.m.
Information was received from S. D. Re-
tirement Systems on a new Roth 457
plan as an added employee benefit now
available. The board requested that em-
ployee input be received prior to making
a decision to add this as an employee
Vicki Wilson, Auditor, informed the board
that in April 2013 a mobile home was re-
ported sold and moved. The board had
abated the taxes due at that time on the
mobile home of Jessie Baysinger, Reg-
istered M. H. #36-0008, Value 5,690,
Total tax $119.00. Vicki Wilson informed
the board that the Treasurer had re-
ceived payment for the mobile home tax,
had investigated the matter further, and
found the mobile home was still owned
by Jessie Baysinger. Vicki Wilson re-
ported that the mobile home was added
back on to the tax roles as 2013 – 15 A
and the payment was applied to the tax
Rose Bennett, Director of Equalization,
met with the board. She reported on the
GIS training she had attended. She also
reported that a new address has been
established for Maxine Allard.
Rose Bennett reported on the assessor’s
conference she attended in May. She in-
formed the board of changes in assess-
ing ag land from “best use” to “as used”.
She also reported she has received
building permits used by two other coun-
ties to use as examples for drawing up a
building permit for Jackson County.
Rose Bennett reported that the factors
for 2013 to be used in determining tax-
able value of property have been re-
ceived. The factors are: Ag .850; Non-Ag
Rose Bennett requested authorization to
attend the Sales Ratio Workshop in
Rapid City in July, a workshop to assess
buildings in Rapid City in July and the
Ultra annual users meeting in Pierre in
August. She informed the board that
there is a required USPAP training in
January 2014. Johnston moved, Stilwell
seconded, that Rose Bennett be author-
ized to attend the workshops and train-
ings scheduled for July and August 2013.
Rose Bennett reported that she has tried
to contact a person with new construc-
tion but they are not home when she tries
to call them. They have not returned her
calls. The board requested she discuss
the matter with the States Attorney.
Discussion was held on new structures
such as roping arenas.
Rose Bennett reported that a new com-
puter was received in the Director of
Equalization office today, and new up-
dates to the GIS program will be loaded
on the computer.
Rose Bennett inquired as to which de-
partment should be charged for gas and
maintenance of the Expedition. It is used
by the Director of Equalization and Sher-
iff’s Department, and occasionally by
other departments. She reported that
most times when she has used the Ex-
pedition she had to put gas in it before
she leaves town, and the oil was low
when she used it in the last month so
scheduled it for an oil change. The board
suggested a log book be kept on who
used the vehicle, gas fills, and service
records. The board directed that each
time the vehicle is used, the person
should fill it with gas when it is returned if
gas level is below half, and that other ex-
penses can be divided between depart-

lands Inn, Circle 10 Campground be ap-
proved and sent to the state for final

pair of vehicles at out of town busi-
nesses. Stilwell objected to service and
repair being done out of town if there is a
local business that does the work. Denke
reported on service not being done by a
local business in a personal situation.
The lease purchase agreement for the
new 2013 Cat 140 AWD motor grader
was reviewed. There are six equal an-
nual payments of $51,864.82. Stilwell
moved, Denke seconded, that the follow-
ing resolution be adopted for purchase of
the motor grader and that the lease pur-
chase documents be approved and

Family farms, ranches and busi-
nesses are the lifeblood of our
South Dakota communities. As
anyone who has built a business
can tell you, success did not happen
overnight. These families have
scrimped, saved, and built job cre-
ating businesses, all with the hope
and promise of passing their suc-
cess on to the next generation.
Families who live and work on
their land view farming and ranch-
ing as a way of life and take seri-
ously their calling to be custodians
of the land they farm and ranch. It
is important to them that future
generations have the opportunity
to care for their land and con-
tribute to the communities they
hold dear. It often takes genera-
tions to build a flourishing family
business, but it only takes one bad
Washington policy to destroy it.
The federal estate tax, commonly
referred to as the death tax, forces
grieving families to pay a tax on
their loved one’s life savings that
was built from income already
taxed when originally earned. The
tax imposes a rate as high as 40
percent on an estate during the
transfer of ownership upon the
death of a loved one. Many of these
businesses are “land rich and cash
poor,” meaning that the value of
the business is in the land and in
the business equipment. These
businesses do not have substantial
liquid assets sitting around to pay
the 40 percent tax when a loved
one passes away. As a result, the
death tax often requires that busi-
ness assets are sold simply to pay
the tax, making passing on farms
and businesses to the next genera-
tion even more difficult.
Currently more than 70 percent
of family businesses do not survive
to the second generation, and 90
percent of family businesses do not
survive to the third generation.
Family businesses can find
themselves in a situation where es-
tate taxes owed are more than the
value of the liquid assets available
to pay the tax. This is certainly the
case throughout the Midwest and
in South Dakota where we have
seen land values increase dramati-
cally. In South Dakota we’ve seen
farmland prices increase by over 50
percent in just the past five years.
I believe that repeal of the de-
structive death tax is critical to
keeping family farms and busi-
nesses intact across South Dakota.
Recently, I introduced the Death
Tax Repeal Act of 2013 which
would permanently repeal the fed-
eral death tax. I am committed to
promoting policies that provide in-
centives to grow family business
and support building our economy,
which starts with a permanent end
to this unfair tax.

lifetime of hard work

Kadoka Fire Hall receives
extensive repairs
Kadoka Fire Hall is getting a complete facelift on the exterior wall and the interior
wall as well due to long-term water damage. Construction began on the firehall
Tuesday, July 2.
Rock Terkildsen begins cleaning up the brick that had to be removed from the ex-
terior wall.
Joe Handrahan (L) and Rock Terkildsen continue to work at removing the brick
wall that was on the lower half of the building.
Joe Handrahan uses a hand held jack hammer to break away the brick. Water
had compromised the exterior wall and was leaking behind the brick. Handrahan
construction will be doing the necessary repairs in order to fix the water problems
at the fire hall.

Pesticide Use?
Although my “title” is Plant
Pathology Field Specialist, being
the only Agronomy Extension staff
person at the Winner Regional Ex-
tension Center, I deal with more
than plant diseases. I consider
that broader perspective to be a
good thing, as there are often com-
mon themes across other aspects
of agronomy.
A local producer recently
brought in a “weed” that was pres-
ent in his pasture, and more obvi-
ous in his neighbors’. With the aid
of the SDSU Taxonomist’s expert-
ise, the “weed” turned out to be a
native wildflower. The Taxonomist
knew the producer wanted to know
what the “weed” was, mainly so he
could find out which herbicide
would control it. Being the expert
in his field that he is, he provided
the plant species, but also added a
concern. In his words, “Native
forbs like this one are being extin-
guished through wholesale herbi-
cide application to grasslands.
Native bees important for pollinat-
ing native and cultivated fruits,
etc., are being decimated as natu-
ral nectar sources needed through
the growing season are lost. I'm
seeing far fewer bees and less fruit
set in pollinator-dependent fruits
in corn/soybean/pasture country
here in the eastern part of the
state. We have a pollinator crisis
that is intensifying. I'm not a tree
hugging true environmentalist,
just an observant realist. How do
we debunk the notion that any-
thing not grass is a weed?”
This “theme” carries over to
other areas. Entomologists pro-
mote that there are other ways to
control insects than just insecti-
cides. Wheat producers are likely
hearing of aphids in their fields.
There are also lady beetles and
other predatory insects there too,
and if at high enough populations,
can keep aphid numbers below the
thresholds. Applying insecticides
when insect pest thresholds
haven’t been reached may not be
economical, and the predators will
also be “controlled”. Insecticides
are also not the only solution for
alfalfa weevils. Granted, the
weather doesn’t always cooperate
to allow early cutting, and even so,
the weevils sometimes survive to
feed on the regrowth and justify an
insecticide application. Alfalfa
weevils have natural enemies and
insecticides should be used with
care to minimize the effect on
these beneficials. There are situa-
tions where including an insecti-
cide with another pesticide
application because there are a
few undesirable insects present
may require coming back for an-
other application because the ben-
eficial insects were taken out in
the first application.
A similar phenomena occurs
with fungicides. In addition to
killing harmful fungi, fungicides
also kill good fungi. These good
fungi help to control aphids,
grasshoppers, and other insects as
well as plant diseases such as bac-
terial. Extensive fungicide use has
also shown to be detrimental to
microbial activity in the soil.
Integrated Pest Management,
or IPM, practices have been en-
couraged for several years. IPM
principles stress crop scouting, fol-
lowing economic thresholds and
considering alternative control
methods. It’s important to recog-
nize that a healthy grassland con-
tains more plants than just grass,
not all insects are pests, and not
all fungi are bad.

Haakon-Jackson County USDA
Farm Service Agency (FSA) Acting
Executive Director, June Huston,
announced that South Dakota FSA
will offer Noninsured Crop Disas-
ter Assistance Program (NAP) cov-
erage for 2014 crops that are
planted annually and used for live-
stock feed or fodder.
The Risk Management Agency
(FSA) recently announced a pilot
program that offers a CAT level
Rainfall Index-Annual Forage In-
surance Plan to producers in Texas,
Kansas, Nebraska, North Dakota,
Oklahoma and South Dakota.
Because there is limited time for
producers in these states to transi-
tion 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 the Haakon
Jackson County FSA Office using
form CCC-471, Application for Cov-
erage. To obtain 2014 NAP cover-
age for these crops, producers in
South Dakota must file the appli-
cation and pay the service fee by
the following dates:
•September 30, 2013 for fall-
seeded crops such as winter wheat
and rye;
•March 15, 2014 for all other
spring seeded forage crops.
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 pro-
ducer with farming interests in
multiple counties.
Producers who meet the defini-
tion of a limited resource farmer or
rancher can request a waiver of the
service fee.
NAP provides financial assis-
tance to producers of noninsurable
crops when low yields, loss of in-
ventory or prevented planting
occur due to normal disasters.
"The easiest way for producers
to protect their investment is to
purchase an insurance policy," said
CED Huston. "The past few years
have proved that natural disasters
are unavoidable, and producers can
recover if they take the necessary
precautions to mitigate risks."

NAP, please contact the Haakon-
Jackson County FSA office at 605
