For the past 25 years the Pat
Guptill family from Quinn has
ranched on their 7,000 acre spread.
The Guptills decided in 2000 they
needed to change the way they
managed their land.
They became caretakers of the
land, which has improved the over-
all health of their ranch and in
turn has improved the health of
their cattle, wildlife and them-
Their conservation efforts have
earned the Guptill family the 2013
Leopold Conservation Award.
“The Leopold Conservation
Award recognizes extraordinary
achievement in voluntary conser-
vation, inspire other landowners
through their example and helps
the general public to understand
the vital role private landowners
can and do play in conservation
A tour of their ranch was held on
Friday, June 28.
Brent Heglund, who represents
the Sand County Foundation,
opened the program. He informed
the guests that the Guptills,
through the years, have achieved
high standards with their land,
and by telling the story to urban
and suburban people who don’t
have the due awareness or interest
they need to know how high per-
forming landowners deliver clear
water, clean food and prosperous
wildlife to their table.
Pat Guptill said it was a huge
shock to hear they were even nom-
inated and it is quite an honor to be
picked. He noted they were pretty
excited to prepare for this day in
awe of people who never knew
what they were doing. He went on
to say it is important for us to take
care of the land. If we don’t the
health of the land will deteriorate
and then the health of people will
Jeffrey Zimprich, state conserva-
tionist of USDA’s Natural Re-
sources Conservation Service,
thanked the Guptills for the work
they do to protect our land and this
is what NRCS is all about – work-
ing on the private land to protect
the people. Thank you for the will-
ingness to share with other produc-
ers and we hope this day will
inspire them to make a change on
their land.
South Dakota Secretary of Ag
Lucas Lentsch, who is nine weeks
into this new job, stated it is a
great honor to leave the ground
better than you found it. Today we
are here to honor the Guptill family
and today it is about those of us
who are in agriculture. Lentsch
hand delivered a letter from Gover-
nor Dennis Daugaard on their ac-
Cory Eich, president South
Dakota Cattlemen’s Association,
said ranchers who run straight
grass have a lot of gumption to
alter their year long plans.
Along with the 2013 Leopold
Conservation award, a $10,000
check will be presented to them at
the South Dakota Cattlemen’s Con-
vention to be held in Pierre on De-
cember 11. The family also received
a sign to put out by their driveway
that designates their achievement.
A video was made of Pat and
Mary Lou where Pat was noted
saying, “God gave us this world to
live on. We need to improve our
land so we are in sync with na-

The Philip City Council spent
much of their July 1 meeting with
progress reports, mostly on con-
struction plans and projects.
The West River Water Develop-
ment District has agreed to fund
up to $10,000 for a hydraulic study
for drainage of the US Highway
14/SD Highway 73 area. The study
has been given the go ahead.
Jay Baxter, Philip site manager
for Midwest Cooperative, updated
the council on preliminary con-
struction plans for a fertilizer plant
near the grain elevators. He said
that four previous issues have been
addressed. Different verbage has
been used to clarify the mainta-
nence agreement of Cherry Street,
exact positioning of the storm
sewer has been set, and the road
width on each side of a designated
line has been adjusted. The fourth
point was discussed, and the fire
hydrant there will be moved east of
its current location. This is for the
benefit of the neighborhood and
Midwest Cooperative. The hydrant
will be protected from truck traffic
with concrete bollards.
The council briefly discussed the
possibility of discontinuing the
noon and 10:00 p.m. whistle.
Though dogs howling at the whistle
was one of the reasons to stop the
whistles, there is no whistle at 3:00
a.m. Council members agreed to let
the community decide the matter,
if opposing interests warrant,
rather than the council.
Building permits were granted
for Barry and Edna Knutson to put
up a fence, for Rene Konst to re-
place a basement wall, for Marion
and Darlene Matt to replace a con-
crete driveway, for Donald and De-
lores Poss to replace a fence, for
Jared Rutherford to build decks
and replace a shed, and for Michael
Vetter to put in a concrete pad.
James and Norma Oldenberg will
replace a retaining wall, with ad-
vance knowledge that it may have
to some day be taken out. After a
public hearing, permission was
given for the Oldenbergs to put a
8’x16’ shed on the north property
The council approved an ease-
ment request at the airport by
Golden West, contingent on clarify-
ing language. Work there should
not take very long, will not be in
the way, and should not offer any
real concern for airport operations.
The overlay project of E. Pine
Street and Wray Avenue should
begin next week. It is planned for
the work to be completed in ap-
proximately seven days. Egress to
adjacent property should be made
available by way of coordinated
progress of the Wood Avenue/
Walden Avenue utility and street
improvement project. The surface
of the Wood Avenue/Walden Avenue
area should be navigatable by lim-
ited traffic while the Pine
Street/Wray Avenue route is inac-
cessible. Curb and gutter work will
begin soon on the lower end of
Wood Avenue. The contractor will
pay half of the cost of televising the
new sewer line for quality control
before the asphalt is put on the sur-
Public Works Director Matt
Reckling said they are still ham-
mering away at potholes, as they
can. When there’s a hole, they try
to attack it. There’s always going to
be potholes, and it takes time to fix
A request has been granted to
Mary Kay Lusk to place a bungee
jump trampoline business on city
property, especially during occa-
sions such at Hot Summer Nights.
Permission is given with a long list
of contingencies, such as proof of
insurance, the city being named as
additional insured on the policy,
signage stating that the city is not
responsible for accidents, and the
equipment will not be stored on
city property.
Council member Trisha Larson
gave an update on the Philip trails
project plans. Though one grant ap-
plication was denied because it is
geared for smaller projects, Larson
agreed to give a power point pres-
entation in Pierre in an attempt to
get other grant funds.
The main sewer pipe downtown
was recently blocked by small
boards or stakes. Work was done to
clear the main, but not until back-
up resulted in two insurance
claims being filed for clean up of
two basements downtown.
A city ordinance has been ap-
proved clarifying that landlords are
ultimately responsible for the pay-
ment of any delinquent water,
sewer or garbage charges that are
not promptly paid by the tenant.
The roof of the municipal build-
ing office needs repair. Tabled for
now, the city crew may do some of
the work while a professional crew
may do work on the rafters.
The city is reminding landown-
ers that trees and shrubs must be
trimmed out of the way for pedes-
tians on sidewalks and vehicle traf-
fic on roads and alleys.
Budget meetings are scheduled
for the first week in August.
Bills pending as of July 1 totaled
over $333,073. This includes a
third payment of over $222,119 for
the Wood Avenue/Walden Avenue
project, a water bill of over $8,116,
and $20,800 toward the purchase
of a tandem axle truck from the
state of South Dakota.
Salaries through June 28, which
totaled over $31,186, also included
over $10,215 in supplemental in-
surance, Medicare, withholding, re-
tirement and garnishment. Health
and dental premiums of over
$10,479 are part of the montly
The next regular Philip City
Council meeting will be Monday,
August 5, at 7:00 p.m. in the
Haakon County Courthouse com-
munity room.

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.

and American Legion Youth Trooper Academy. Shown, from left, are Colonel Craig

“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.
One of the activities at the South Dakota Highway Patrol and American Legion
Youth Trooper Academy was learning first hand the effectiveness of Rocko, a drug
dog stationed in Spearfish with Trooper Brian Swets. Cadet Gavin Brucklacher,
though laughing all the while from inside protective gear, still took a pounding
from Rocko. Courtesy photos

Lookin’ Around by Syd Iwan
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 background. I
enjoyed the play of light and color
so much that I was somewhat re-
luctant to trudge back inside 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 tem-
perature of 5000K 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 orange in a photo
instead of being a more appropri-
ate skin color. This change isn’t al-
ways obvious to the eye since we
mentally make an adjustment, but
photographic film captures what is
there and sometimes 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 hol-
lyhocks 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 lantana
of various hues. Lantanas are fa-
vorites 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
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 ap-
pear 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

Family reunion ... by Del Bartels
Dusk is beginning, and the fireworks will soon start. The barbecue
is smoldering down, though enough embers remain for a marshmallow
or three. It is the Fourth of July, and the annual United States Flag
family reunion. So many are in attendance, but the many conversations
seem to center around those not here.
The farthest away picnic table is surrounded by old fogies playing
cards. The crankiest geezer, from 1775, slams down a winning hand
and guffaws, “Don’t tread on me.” With a stately, colonial, manner, the
patriarch of the family gathers the cards and begins shuffling. He is
the 1777 Continental Congress Flag, proud of his 13 stripes and 13
stars. Great-great Uncle 1795 reaches out his craggy hand to cut the
deck, displaying his sleeve which has 15 stars and stripes. Speaking
far too loudly, because he himself is half deaf, is Yank 1814, who repeats
on almost every occasion the story of watching through the explosions
a Francis Scott Key out on a British ship. What did ever became of that
captured poet, anyway?
Off on their own are the oldest veterans, telling their stories. The
black sheep, Old Man Confederate, is still part of the family. His pres-
ence reminds all others of the family members who are truly gone.
Some have been destroyed by foes, while others’ dignity has been
burned by supposed friends. Many, far too many, have been laid to rest
with heroes who upheld the family name. May they rest ... Under God.
Standing tall, yet with head bowed, is Halfmast – the rest of the family
nervously accepts his solemnness, showing respect in that when he
does ever speak that all heads will turn his way.
Then there are the trend setters. Frisky old Great-great Grandma
1818 was the one who finally said enough, and all other Flags kept the
same crest of 13 stripes, though younger whipper snappers have been
periodically adding stars. Always defiantly prudish, Aunt 1861 flaunts
her 34 stars, and refuses to take off even her sunbonnet, just to get
under the skin of Old Man Confederate. Friend of the family is the joke-
ster, 1889 Kid 39, who almost became family, but the Dakota Territory
came as two stars instead of one. An honored friend, pledging to never
miss a reunion, is Francis Bellamy. Only one step away from the
youngest Flag generation, is Aunt 1912, who lost her “youth” status in
1959 when her 48 stars became outdated.
Still recovering from extreme wounds, is the cousin who lived atop
the Twin Towers. Still out in the unknown are the six explorers, whose
leader befriended a man by the name of Neil Armstrong. And the ru-
mors persist that a young 51-Star may be in the offing.
The first crack and flash go off. Everyone stands. Halfmast steps
back, for this is not his time. It is time to celebrate. It is a joyous rather
than a fearful deja vu for Uncle 1814. Fourth of July fireworks light
up the sky. Another Flag family reunion ends as it should.
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

Now in their fourth year of mis-
sions trips to the Cheyenne River
Indian Reservation, the Saint Dun-
stan Episcopal Church of Houston,
Texas, and the Good Shepard Epis-
copal Church of Tomball, Texas, do-
nate 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 subur-
ban, 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’ volun-
teers 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 relation-
ship with Reverend Byron Buffalo
and his United Church of Christ.
Last year the mission group
trucked in a medical clinic build-
ing. They said the prefabricated-
type structure somewhat resem-
bles 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 mis-
sion crew believes the school dis-
trict 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, volunteers 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 dur-
ing the summer have some mission
doing something for the residents.
During the Fourth of July week, a
group from Liberty, Mo., is sched-
uled 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.
Many mission groups from out of state are South Dakota bound, coming to work
on projects on the Cheyenne River Indian Reservation. The groups often get build-
ing materials, hardware supplies and groceries from either Faith or Philip. Shown
are four of the 10 adults accompanying 20 high school volunteers from Texas
churches. They were getting supplies from Philip. From left are Cathy LeJeune,

Many Americans have too much
debt, aren’t saving enough money
every month and need to work on
their financial literacy. That educa-
tion should start early, and Haakon
County Farmers Union’s annual
day camp taught young people
about the importance of taking
care of their money and about the
impact cooperative businesses have
had on our state’s economy.
Young people attended this
year’s camp themed, “Farmers
Union is our name, Cooperation is
our game.” The kids participated in
activities and games that taught
them about cooperative business,
rural communities, and agriculture
in a fun and safe setting. They par-
ticipated in hands-on team build-
ing activities, including playing a
cooperative human board game to
test their knowledge of finances.
“We hope the children who learn
about saving money and cooperat-
ing with each other at an early age
will be more successful adults,”
said Haakon County Education Di-
rector Marsha Sumpter. “Our
youth need to learn about what co-
operation in their own personal
lives can do, along with the impor-
tance of cooperative business and
being a good steward of the money
they earn.”
Along with activities, games and
singing, each child also decorated
their own wooden bank as a craft to
promote saving money. Each child
also received a free T-shirt.
Participants at this year’s
Haakon County Farmers Union
camp were Taylor Hanson and
Romy Andrus, both from Philip.
Helping at this year’s camp were
Sumpter, Sandee Gittings, Ashton
Reedy and Tyana Gottsleben, all
from Philip, and summer staff in-
terns Nicole Seible and Kortny
Campers learn financial literacy, cooperation

Rural Livin’
Pesticide Use?
Although my “title” is plant
pathology field specialist, being
the only South Dakota State Uni-
veristy 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 encour-
aged for several years. IPM princi-
ples stress crop scouting, following
economic thresholds and consider-
ing alternative control methods.
It’s important to recognize that a
healthy grassland contains more
plants than just grass, not all in-
sects are pests, and not all fungi
are bad.

Farm Service Agency NAP
Coverage Available for 2014 An-
nual Forage Crops
Haakon-Jackson County USDA
Farm Service Agency (FSA) Acting
Executive Director, June Huston,
announced that South Dakota FSA
will offer Noninsured Crop Disaster
Assistance Program (NAP) coverage
for 2014 crops that are planted an-
nually and used for livestock feed or
The Risk Management Agency
(FSA) recently announced a pilot
program that offers a CAT level
Rainfall Index-Annual Forage Insur-
ance 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
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 coverage
for these crops, producers in South
Dakota must file the application and
pay the service fee by the following
•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 ex-
ceed a total of $1,875 for a producer
with farming interests in multiple
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 nor-
mal disasters.
"The easiest way for producers to
protect their investment is to pur-
chase an insurance policy," said Hus-
ton. "The past few years have proved
that natural disasters are unavoid-
able, and producers can recover if
they take the necessary precautions
to mitigate risks."

Bo Slovek, a cattleman from
Philip, was one of more than 50
young cattlemen and women se-
lected for the National Cattlemen’s
Beef Association 34th Young Cat-
tlemen’s Conference.
Slovek was sponsored by the
South Dakota Cattlemen’s Associa-
tion. The YCC program is a com-
prehensive, nationwide tour of beef
industry sectors, created to en-
hance leadership skills in your beef
industry professionals.
“YCC is a prestigious and com-
petitive program designed to foster
the future leadership of our indus-
try,” said Forrest Roberts, NCBA
chief executive officer. “The partic-
ipants selected to attend YCC were
chosen because of their exceptional
contributions to the beef industry
and their potential to be a strong
voice in our future development. I
look forward to seeing Bo take an
increased leadership role within
NCBA and the beef industry.”
Slovek works on his family’s
ranch, Slovek Ranch, near Philip.
He grew up working on the ranch
throughout high school before at-
tending college. After one year of
college he decided to come back to
the family operation full time. He
currently has 75 head of registered
Angus cows and sells bulls every
Slovek Ranch consists of approx-
imately 900 cows and 250 yearling
heifers. The majority of the cows
are hybrid/composites. A majority
are Angus with some Simmental,
Gelbvieh and Shorthorn. Slovek
Ranch artificially inseminates
nearly 1,000 head a year, sells the
top 75 bulls annually and keeps the
top heifers to put back into their
herd. The rest of the calves go to a
feedlot where the ranch retains in-
terest in them.
The eight day tour began at
NCBA headquarters in Denver,
Colo., where participants were
given an organizational overview of
NCBA and the Beef Checkoff Pro-
gram. The group heard from repre-
sentatives of Cattle Fax and the
United States Meat Export Feder-
ation. They toured a Safeway retail
store and learned about Rancher’s
Reserve brand beef marketing ef-
forts. The group spent a day in
Greeley, Colo., visiting JBS Five
Rivers feed yards and processing
“It is really important for partic-
ipants to see each sector of the beef
industry – from farm to fork,” said
Slovek. “Traveling from a cow/calf
ranch to a feedlot and processing
plant really drives home the point
that our industry is composed of
many sectors, sectors that are all
striving to produce a healthy end
In Chicago, the group met with
the senior management of the
Chicago Mercantile Exchange at
the Chicago Board of Trade. They
watched the activity on the trading
floor and witnessed futures trading
firsthand. Participants also visited
Otto & Sons Industries, a family
owned company providing quality
products and custom solutions for
the food industry since 1909. This
tour offered a view of how boxed
beef is turned into custom order
portions for both major restaurant
chains and some of the nation’s top
The group then traveled to
Washington, D.C., where partici-
pants received an issues briefing
from NCBA’s government affairs
staff about policy issues currently
facing the cattle industry. The
group then traveled to Aldie, Va.,
for a tour and barbeque at White-
stone Farms, one of the nation’s
elite purebred Angus operations.
The next day, these future lead-
ers visited one-on-one with mem-
bers of their state’s congressional
delegation, expressing their view-
points regarding the beef industry
and their cattle operations. During
their congressional visits, partici-
pants focused on issues including
the 2013 Farm Bill, federal lands
ranching and overreaching regula-
tions proposed by the Environmen-
tal Protection Agency. They
finished the day with a reception
hosted by John Deere at the com-
pany’s Washington office.

YCC program or to nominate some-
one for next year’s tour, contact

Thanks everyone for your kind
birthday greetings, letters, cards,
phone calls Facebook and email
greetings and gifts. My grandson,
Clay Hansen, said “Happy birth-
day, Grandma, you don’t look a day
over 90!” My son, Wayne, and wife
Gwynn came over for supper and
brought gifts, best chocolates from
Wayne and velvet scarf hangers
from Gwynn. I had told Gwynn
how I wished there was a special
hanger for scarves. They are
padded hangers with about 12 slots
in each, padded all around, with
room for a silk scarf in each! Hans
P. Hansen sent a handpainted card
saying, “I adore 94.” Thanks. Cards
arrived from Darlene Baye, Gay
Logan, Addie Rorvig, Sandra and
Edith Drew, Wanda and Ed Artz,
and the bank in Kadoka with a
ticket for coffee and pie at local
restaurant included. Leonard and
Jean Meyer sent a beautiful card
and a link to two and three letter
words for scrabble. Thanks.
My granddaughter, Crystal
Denke Jackson, Huntington Beach,
Calif., sent such a good email. She
told what was blooming there. Her
son, Sean, a Marine, since he has
finished his tour of duty in
Afghanistan and also finished his
studies at the University of Califor-
nia graduating with honors, has
gone to Rhode Island to Brown
University to attend “Venture for
America.” (I hope he goes over to
North Stonington, Conn., to view
the cemetery where our Palmer an-
cestor, Walter Palmer, has a big
stone as one of the founders of the
town and cemetery and a “wolf
Crystal’s daughter, Ariel, has fin-
ished her studies at the University
of California and has a job with a
law firm in Irvine, Calif. We are
proud of these youngsters.
June 22, Addie Rorvig brought
me a birthday card and Somerset
Court brought a miniature birth-
day cake, a card signed by several
of the staff members, and three
free dinners. More birthday greet-
ings arrived in the mail: Delores
and Don Denke’s, two from Philip
(one from Thelma Heltzel and one
from Sharon Coyle).
There was an announcement and
invitation from my grandson,
Michael Hansen, who is relocating
his Torrance practice of optometery.
This is a newer custom built facil-
ity with excellent parking. The new
place will be called Advanced Eye-
care Center. Michael is also adding
a second office in the South Bay
area with an associate doctor, Dr.
Tracy Wong. Congratulations and
best wishes on your continued suc-
cess, Michael. I am still enjoying
the smart-looking little photo grays
you made for me when I was out to
My great-grandson, Dylan
Palmer Mair and Carla Rae Moss
sent an invitation to their wedding,
August 3, 2013, at the Shepherd of
the Valley Lutheran Church, Ft.
Bridge, Wyo. I was delighted to get
the photo of them on their card. It
shows Dylan and Carla standing
waist deep in a beautiful field of
ripe wheat. Reinhold and Rose
Denke and Virgil and Vivian
Hansen attended the wedding of
Dylan’s parents there some 20
years ago!
Thank you for your invitation,
Dylan and Carla. Here’s wishing
you great happiness.
Delores’s card had a delightful
and fantastic butterfly, like it was
made from quilt pieces. She wrote
that the farm keeps them jumping.
Things could be worse. They have
a nest of robins in the greenhouse.
A rooster pheasant perches on the
board fence and crows in the morn-
ing and flaps his wings. Two baby
owls are nearby. There are lots of
birds there this year.
Sunday, June 23, at Somerset
Court, we had church with Rev.
Richardson. Mrs. Richardson also
came and Jack Humke played the
piano for us to sing. Thank you all.
Rev. Richardson spoke to us on Ec-
clesiastes 3, “Everything has it’s
time.” He said tht his minister
taught him how to read the Bible.
Go through and highlight every-
time you see Holy Spirit. You will
pretty much have read it all. Re-
memger God want us to love one
We extend our sympathy to Som-
erset Court resident, Floy Olson,
whose sister recently passed away.
USA Today’s best seller book list
includes, “And the Mountains
Echoed.” The author’s name caught
my eye, Khaled Hossien. There was
this memorable book he wrote
quite some years ago, “The Kite
Runner.” I might phone the Rapid
City Public Library to see if they
have this book, but I am afraid the
new book might be violent. Would
you believe that there are four
holds on the book, “The Great
Gatsby?” I have been reading my
collection of Gene Stratton-Porter’s
Joyce Astleford has moved to an-
other facility and we miss her.
Monday, June 24, at Somerset
Court, we had crafts with Amy and
the project was to make bright red
and green watermelon slices hang-
ings for our doors. They had big
brown seeds. Thanks for your craft
class, Amy, and thanks for the word
searches and Somerset bucks. The
new word searches are about arts
and crafts words and there is also
a sheet about auction – the Somer-
set Court auction is June 26, so
count up your bucks. There is al-
ways a good selection of goods to
bid on. The quilters group, with
Sandi doing the main work of put-
ting the quilt together, makes a
nice quilt every year. It is the nicest
item on the whole list. Somerset
Court traditionally gives a few
guest suites for overnight stays.
Then there are many practical or
decorative smaller items. Be pre-
pared to spend all your Somerset
Court bucks, because on June 27,
2013, they will be worthless.
It has been wonderful weather to
walk outdoors. The undeveloped
hillside on the south side of the
Somerset Court building is becom-
ing beautiful with the recent rains.
There is rampant sweet clover and
glorious bushes of alfalfa in full
purple bloom, tall prairie grasses,
four foot tall sourdock seed heads
still green, here and there a thistle
is ready to blow. There are creeping
jinny and wild roses, dandelions,
luxurious sage in silvery green.
Near the top of the hill are a few
small pines. Over everything, the
cottonwood cotton is drifting down.
I went out on June 24 to see the big
moon, but the sky was too overcast.
On June 24, I received three
more birthday cards and a letter.
The letter was from my son, David,
who lives near Ft. Pierre, and was
written in ink. The cards were from
my granddaughter, Gwen and Gary
Morgan and great-grands, Sarah,
Kelsie, and Tyler Butcher, in Vir-
ginia, and granddaughter, Emily
Hansen, Lincoln, Neb., and Enid
Schulz, Philip.
Tuesday, June 25, at Somerset
Court, we had bingo in the after-
noon. Then the birthday bash fol-
lowed bingo. We had a bunch of
residents with June birthdays: Lila
Feist, 5th, Shirley Hessman and
Edna Mae Moss, 7th, Marilyn
Butts, 11th, Corky Wortman, 14th,
Phyllis Capeheart, 15th, Virginia
Gray, 20th, and Vivian Hansen,
Jack Humke led us in singing
“Happy Birthday, God Bless You.”
Lucille Huether had company,
her friend and minister from the
Wall Methodist Church.
Wednesday, June 26, at Somer-
set Court, we had the our annual
auction with Director Ryan Love as
auctioneer. Sandi, Susan, Amy,
Shawn and Chris assisting with
displaying the items. We all used
our bucks (no real money involved)
that we had received for participat-
ing in various Somerset Court ac-
tivities. An overnight stay at
Somerset Court in our guest suite
went for $110,000. After I bought
one I didn’t have enough money left
to buy anything else good. There
were a few really nice items. The
lap robe quilt went for $32,000, and
the full size quilt went for $60,000,
writing paper, envelopes and
stamps brought $32,000 and a
large size men’s t-shirt with patri-
otic motif sold at $102,000!
In the afternoon, we took a little
break and had cookies. The auction
used up most of the afternoon. By
that time we were ready to get out-
doors or go take a nap.
According to an article in the
June 26 Rapid City Journal, South
Dakota is hopeful that a bill signed
by South Dakota’s Governor Dau-
gaard, which permits state’s eco-
nomic board to refund sme sales
taxes, will encourage wind farm de-
velopers. South Dakota is said to be
the United States’ fifth windiest
From the little book, “365 Ways
to Energize Mind, Body and Soul,”
by Stephanie Tourles, I chose this
quote: “Feeling nostalgic? Reread
your high school year book, look
through an old photo album, or sort
through old letters. Reliving fun
memories will give you a lift.”
The story of creation of the Ox-
ford Dictionary “The Meaning of
Everything,” by Simon Winchester,
recounts in detail the procedure
used to obtain the most inclusive
knowledge available for each word.
It is a word-lover’s delight.
Susan Kraemer, Ray’s daughter-
in-law, visited Ray at lunch time
June 28. I believe Mildred had gone
to Deadwood.
M.R. Hansen emailed from Mon-
golia. M.R. and Barbara are settled
in their apartment and have been
working at teaching the fundamen-
tals of concrete and English as a
second language.
Thank you to Nancy Haigh, who
sent me an email with an old photo
of the Grindstone Women’s Club.
The dresses looked like it was
taken in the 1940s. George
Wheeler gave the photo to Nancy.
It is by a club member’s house and
has around 30 women and four ba-
bies in arms and seven or so kids.
This photo reminds me so much of
an old photo I have of the Grind-
stone Women’s Club at my old
house up on the hill north of Philip
(the Carl Pritchard house).
July Fourth Milesville will have
their annual BBQ. Serving will
begin at 7:00 p.m. and the Haakon
County Crooners will sing.
Somerset Court plans to have a
noon picnic in the courtyard on
July Fourth. We may have com-
June 28, we received our sched-
ule for July. There are a number of
delightful outings and celebrations
planned. For example, July 19, is
an outing to Mt. Rushmore. I am
also glad to see that quilting is on
tap for July 13. and the New Hori-
ons band will be here in the Somer-
set Court courtyard.
June 28, my granddaughter,
Sheridan Hansen, came for scrab-
ble. We had a good game. Need to
keep in practice. Thank you for
coming over!
In the July 2013 West Centrl
Electric Cooperative Connections
magazine there was an article
about the labor it takes to keep our
electrical service functioning at
high efficiency. There is also an ar-
ticle about changing out a light
pole without cutting off service.
This involves handling live wires.

of the procedure and intense con-
The June 27, 2013, Rapid City
Journal had these items: late night
large mouth – June 17, Gavin
Brucklacher, Philip, was at Lake
Waggoner with friend, Tom
Pavalas. Around 8:45 Brucklacher
cast a hula popper next to some
reeds and, whammon, a big fish
was on the line! A five pound bass.
Brucklacher released the fish.
In another item, Keith Winter-
steen, of the Game, Fish and
Parks, wrote the Journal: “The
walleye at Angostura are ab-
solutely on fire! The fish are fat
and hungry.”

Stabens for this information.
A lot of the folks are busy putting
up hay. We're all thankful for what
we got this year. One more thing I'm
thankful for (thanks, Leanne, for re-
minding us each week) is that there
are no grasshoppers. What wheat
that will be combined this year will
be late as most of it didn't come up
last fall because of the dry conditions.
A lot of farmers are cutting theirs for
Have a safe July 4th!
Milesville News

The weather has been hot and
dry and things sure are showing
the fact on the grass. We really
need some rain. The wind, along
with the heat, can dry things out
quickly. There is some rain pre-
dicted to come later this week, so
we continue to pray that it does.
Some people say that their wheat
did not bloom, so therefore there is
no grain in the heads. Marvin
looked at his and said that his
wheat heads are filled. Millet is up
and looking good, but other fields
need rain to help them come up
and grow.
Everyone is busy haying and are
pleased with the hay that they are
getting. Someone said that they
had 1,000 bales put up and al-
though it is not a bumper crop, his
wife said to be thankful as that is
1,000 more than they had last year.
Marvin and Vicki Eide and their
granddaughter, Kiley, are busy
haying and when they are not hay-
ing they are busy fixing fence. They
sprayed for flies and moved the cat-
tle to summer pasture this week.
We still have a hospital group of six
or seven cows and calves at home.
Their two-year-old blind heifer had
a calf and they think that the calf
is also blind. It must have an inher-
ited gene in their system. Odd,
don’t you think? When they
brought the cattle in, a calf was
found with a broken leg, so him
and his mother are also here at
home. The calf seems to be healing
Brayden Fitch, who comes and
windrows for Marvin, has been
gone this week on vacation with his
family to Branson, Mo. They are to
be back July 5. But never fear,
there is a lot of hay to be put up
yet! So, there is still work for him
to do when he arrives back. Christa
called when they arrived in Bran-
son and said that they were going
to be busy with all six kids to look
after, but everyone helps each
other and so it goes well.
We need to keep John Kramer in
our prayers. He is being deployed
overseas for a year leaving Tonya,
Coy, Corbin and Colden at home,
but they have good family support
here. The whole family will miss
him immensely.
Steve and Roxy Smith are home.
They came for the Smith family re-
union that will be held at Ed and
Joyce (Smith) Buchholz’s home in
Belle Fourche over the Fourth of
July weekend. They plan to have
their big day on Saturday, July 6.
There are 85 registered for that
Steve and Roxy enjoyed the
O’Dea reunion in Spearfish on
June 29 and 30. They are also
spending time with family while

here. There are a lot of family to see
on both sides, as both sides are orig-
inally from the Philip area.
Don and Donna Olivier went to
Cole Springs, Minn., to visit their
son, Steve, and family. As it is not
far from Minneapolis, they went
down and took in a Twins game
which they really enjoyed.
Monday, July 1, Tucker and Jess
Smith’s boys were at Grandma
Debbie’s house for the day. She was
enjoying having them and was try-
ing to get the baby to sleep when I
called her for news. It was bad tim-
ing on my part, but she did give me
some news.
Debbie said that she goes into
Philip for water aerobics Tuesday
and Thursday evenings. She at-
tends Bible study at the United
Church on Mondays, so keeps busy
with all kinds of things besides
babysitting grandchildren. I guess,
for me, that is why it is nice to be a
great-grandmother, the kids come
and help you instead of you babysit-
ting them!
Sympathy goes out to the family
of Muriel Kjos. Muriel was such a
friendly person. It was such a pleas-
ure to have her wait on you wher-
ever she worked and I enjoyed
seeing her in church. She always

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

Good morning America! Greet-
ings from Sioux Falls, where folks
are busy on their way to and from
work, the Interstate is buzzing
with traffic, and aircraft are com-
ing over the campground we are at
as they approach for landing.
Here it is July already. Wishing
everyone a safe celebration of Inde-
pendence Day this July Fourth. I
hope time can be made to reflect on
the true meaning of independence.
Farmers Union camp was held
Monday at George and Sandee Git-
tings’ with summer staff from
Huron helping, along with Tyana
Gottsleben and Ashton Reedy.
Tyana and Ashton were great help
and brought experience after at-
tending the state camp. I attended
the full day as well. The Haakon
County Farmers Union meeting
followed the program and potluck
supper. The anticipated treat was
the homemade ice cream that
Sandee and George fixed up.
On my way home from Gittings’
Monday night, I visited at the Lee
Vaughan home. Just as I got there,
a wind storm was going through
and Lee, Ruth and John Carley
were getting a freezer put in the
house at Carley’s. The wind blew
through but no rain accompanied

Cathy Fiedler reported it has
been a beautiful week up in the
Black Hills. Nice temperatures
with evenings so they could be out-
side. Work kept Ralph and Cathy
busy this week as well as getting
ready for their family gathering
over the weekend that Sherry,
Lynette and Cathy hosted.
George Gittings was in Rapid
City Wednesday for a dental ap-
Tony Harty didn’t have too much
going on the first part of the week
except normal things. Wednesday,
he visited with his niece, Kathy
Brown. Thursday, he mowed some
yards, then stopped to pick on me
and nobody was home. Friday, he
was at the courthouse in the morn-
ing, then in the afternoon made a
trip to Martin.
Bryce Dickerson, Lovell, Wyo.,
arrived Thursday evening to visit
Kelsey Gittings.
Thursday, I made a trip to Philip
with the Haakon County Prairie
Transportation van and while
there took the opportunity to visit
at Clark Morrision’s. Thelma
Hardt was there too and shared
some salad fixings with me from
the garden. I also stopped at Dean
and Mary Parsons and visited. Glo-
ria French was busy helping with
some yard work, so had a chat with
her too. Things were getting really
tidied up in the yard. Then it was
time to pick up my passenger. I
hurried to the airport and pushed
the plane out of the hanger and
was airborne, headed to Chamber-
lain for my biennial check ride with
Richard Helton. We started the
ground questions over pie, ice
cream and coffee. From there it
was a fun time practicing all the
unusual attitudes Richard threw at
me in the air between Chamberlain
and Philip. At Philip, Lee Vaughan
took over and he also got his check
ride with Richard and flew him
back to Chamberlain. I went on
home to Kadoka and tucked the
plane away for the day. I jumped in
the car, grabbed a few things Bill
needed and went to Terry Buchert’s
and spent the night with Bill.
Sandee Gittings was in Rapid
City on Friday for a doctor's ap-
Don and Vi Moody were busy
haying, the old theory of “make hay
while the sun shines” has applied
to a lot of fields. The cattle are up
to their backs in grass. However,
not to be lulled asleep, we still need
rain. Things look wonderful, but
periodic rain will help it all.
Friday afternoon, Don and Vi
Moody made a trip to Kadoka to
get licenses. Vi has been doing a lot
of yard mowing while Don was
busy in the hay field.
Friday afternoon, Ralph and
Cathy Fiedler loaded up the jeep
and headed to Spearfish to the
Hanson home to help Eric and
Sherry get things ready for the rest
of the family and a cookout. Later
in the day, Don and Lynette Klumb
and girls and Ayden Klumb, Doug
and Sandy Slovek and grandson
Lane, Brodus, Mont., Richard and
Diana Stewart, Philip, Jeb Stewart
Brandon, Kellie and Kadence
(Stewart) Halverson, Kennebec, ar-
rived. Supper was enjoyed by all,
then some yard games were played.
At dark a fire was built in the fire
pit and everyone sat around and
visited until late. The stars were
out and they could see the northern
lights. Staying at the Hanson home
were Jeb, Kellie and Kadence.
Richard and Diana had their
camper in the yard. Doug and
Sandy went to a motel and the rest
to their homes. Saturday morning,
they all gathered back at the Han-
son home for the day with Casey
Slovek and friend Jenny from Bro-
dus, Mont., joining them. Eric,
Sherry and Elsie were in Sturgis so
Elsie could play in her softball
tournament. The family enjoyed
looking through old pictures. After
lunch, things were packed up and
they went to Iron Creek Lake for
an afternoon of swimming, fishing
and paddle boating. The Hanson
family joined them after Elsie’s
game. The party resumed back at
the Hanson home for supper, with
more visiting and more yard games
for a splendid evening. Sunday
morning, everyone met back at the
Hanson home for breakfast. Eric
and Elsie were in Sturgis for the
softball tournament. After break-
fast, the house and yard were
cleaned up and packed up so every-
one could head to their homes after
pictures were taken. Sherry and
Loman Hanson road back to Stur-
gis with Ralph and Cathy so they
could watch Elsie play ball. Elsie’s
team took second in the tourna-
ment. Ralph and Cathy went on
home cause they had had enough of
the great outdoors. A good weekend
was enjoyed by all.
Friday morning, I needed to
make a trip to Rapid City on busi-
ness. I made a tour around Kadoka
with a few folks from the Kadoka
Care Center and acitivities director
Kathy Stone. The ones who don’t
get out much enjoyed seeing all the
flowers and haying and fields. We
even checked out Kadoka lake.
Phyllis Word stopped by the house
and visited.
Kelsey Gittings and Bryce Dick-
erson did some touring in Wall and
the Black Hills Saturday.
George Gittings attended the
wedding of Jody Sue Johnson and
Tom Struble Saturday evening.
Sandee was unable to attend.
Saturday evening, Bill surprised
me by arriving home with the mo-
torhome. After supper, we went to
Philip to wish Tom and Jody Stru-
ble congratulations on their wed-
ding. May they enjoy many years
Don and Vi Moody went to Rapid
to spend some time at their Rapid
Valley home and took care of get-
ting mowing done there and visited
with the fellow that will be haying
their acreage. The also enjoyed a
trip into Deadwood for Sunday af-
Scott and Lorraine Seiden-
stricker, Reno, Nev., and Mellissa
Seidenstricker, Minneapolis, vis-
ited George and Sandee Gittings
Sunday morning. Scott and Lor-
raine were supper guests in the
evening along with Bryce Dicker-
son, Kelsey Gittings, Kobie, Jason
and T.J. Davis.
Saturday morning, Tony Harty
visited at our place, then stopped
and visited with L.D. and Shirley
Hair who were back in Kadoka for
a brief time, getting their mail from
Tony and checking out their place.
Bill and I met L.T. and Judy De-
Witt at the café in Kadoka for
breakfast Sunday morning. We saw
Mel Smith at the café and he
picked up the shirts for their re-
union over the Fourth of July, Joe
Prouty took the drive with him.
From there it was get the mo-
torhome ready to travel again. L.T.
and Bill pulled the motorhomes
onto the highway and headed to-
ward Sioux Falls. We both settled
into a campground there that
evening. Bill and I joined Eric Sea-
ger and Chaciel with friends and
family in the park in celebration of
Eli’s second birthday. Wade and
Sue Hovland were among the
guests. Bill and L.T. went to the car
races in the evening and Judy and
I entertained ourselves otherwise.
It was funny though, as we were
returning to the motorhomes in the
mass of traffic from the car races,
who should be just ahead of us but
L.T. and Bill. For fun we followed
them into all sorts of places and fi-
nally they got wise they were being
followed. Not often you can get
those two.
Sunday, Tony Harty went to
church and had dinner out. He en-
joyed sitting out on the patio visit-
ing with Dale Koehn until it
warmed up.
I read in a magazine that a great
face and neck exfoliant was three
parts of baking soda and one part
of water so decided to try it. I
grabbed a yellow box out of the
cooking stuff, mixed it up and

little hard to apply but I managed
to get it on and off. The next morn-

soda” away I discovered I’d used
corn starch, no wonder it didn’t
spread too good!

Snook, Midland, will receive $1,000
scholarships from the South
Dakota Farmers Union Founda-
tion. DeJong and Snook are among
the 26 recent high school graduates
to receive the $1,000 scholarships.

South Dakota State University this
fall. Snook, also a graduate of
Philip High School and son of Gary

For the sixth straight year, the
South Dakota Farmers Union

helping young people fulfill their
dreams,” said Foundation Execu-
tive Director Leslie Rupiper Mor-

applicants, and it’s so difficult to
decide the recipients. This year’s
scholarship winners are some of
the best students in the state and
we’re confident that they’ll be the
leaders of tomorrow. We’re excited
to honor this great group and
couldn’t be more excited that
they’ve chosen to stay in South
Dakota to further their education.”
The recipients were scored based
on a combination of academic
record, activities and awards, fi-
nancial need, and an essay relating
to how they will, “Insure a Brighter
Tomorrow,” in South Dakota.

College Briefs
A Buffalo County child is South
Dakota’s first human West Nile
virus detection of the season, the
state health department reported
today. The person is in the 10 to 19
age group.
“West Nile positive mosquitoes
and now a sick individual indicate
the active transmission of West
Nile virus in South Dakota and
people need to protect themselves,
especially during evening outdoor
activities, such as Fourth of July
fireworks shows” said Dr. Lon
Kightlinger, state epidemiologist
for the department.
To prevent mosquito bites and
reduce the risk of West Nile, the de-
partment recommends the follow-
ing personal precautions. Use
mosquito repellents (DEET, pi-
caridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus or
IR3535) and limit exposure by
wearing pants and long sleeves in
the evening.
Limit time outdoors from dusk to
midnight when culex mosquitoes
are most active. Get rid of standing
water that gives mosquitoes a place
to breed. Support local mosquito
control efforts. Personal precau-
tions are especially important for
those at high risk for West Nile –
people over 50, pregnant women,
transplant patients, individuals
with diabetes or high blood pres-
sure, and those with a history of al-
cohol abuse. People with severe or
unusual headaches should see
their physicians.
Three mosquito pools have tested
positive for West Nile so far this
season in South Dakota, two in
Brookings County and one in
Hughes County. All of the positive
pools were culex tarsalis, the pri-
mary carrier of the virus in South

Last week’s picture: Part of the year stamped on the Haakon County Courthouse.
Around Philip there are many architectural elements on buildings as well as other
items that we see on a daily basis. But, can you identify them when given just an
upclose snapshot? Here’s one for you to try. The answer will be in the next week’s
Pioneer Review. Photo by Nancy Haigh
Where is it?
Look around town!
(continued from last week)
Ray and Nancy Neuhauser are
keeping busy with their normal ac-
tivities. Last Friday, they went to
Sioux Falls and picked up Jerry
Tibbs and brought him back to
Pierre. Jerry had been in the hos-
pital there for a couple of weeks.
Saturday night, Ray and Nancy
went out for supper. Nancy has
also been helping take care of her
niece who is battling cancer.
Lee Briggs has been busy with
field work, and Mary Briggs had
cataract surgery last week. I
haven't talked to her, but hopefully
all is going well.
Ed Briggs was in the Clark area
Saturday. His son, Casey, works for
a farmer there, and the family
gathered to help Casey celebrate
his birthday. Casey's brother,
Shane, lives in Brookings, and he
was also able to join the group for
the celebration. Ed said they saw
some of the storm damage in the
area, and they also toured a gun
shop owned by Casey's boss, along
with some exotic animal mounts
from hunting trips to Africa. Later
that evening, Ed and his friend,
Beth King, attended a wedding re-
ception in Ideal. Tuesday, Ed at-
tended the farm show in Pierre.
Ruth Neuhauser enjoyed the
visit from her daughter, Connie
Boger, and her great-grandson,
Payton Boger, last Tuesday and
Wednesday. Saturday, Lenore Yost
and her friend, Helen Olson,
stopped in to visit with Ruth.
Lenore taught at Robbs Flat
School many years ago – Randy
said she was his first grade
teacher, so that has been a long
time ago! Lenore now lives in
Kansas, and she was en route to a
family reunion in Miller. She and
Ruth have kept in contact through
these many years, and Lenore en-
joys hearing about the families in
the area.
Nels and Dorothy Paulson were
in Pierre last Friday to get some
groceries and haying supplies. Sat-
urday, they and their friends, Dale
and Myrna Hartmann, traveled to
Rapid City to meet up with Nels
and Dorothy's niece and family.
Their niece is originally from
Jamestown, and she and her hus-
band now live in Florida. They
were in Rapid City to visit their
new grandchild. Nels and
Dorothy's brother-in-law, Frank
Bennett, North Dakota, was also
there to see his great-grandchild.
Nels and Dorothy headed for home
Saturday evening, hoping to stay
ahead of the heavy weather in the
area. She said it was raining so
hard heading up Highway 63 that
the windshield wipers could barely
keep up! Sunday, Frank Bennett
and his friend, Betty, stopped for a
short visit on their way back to
North Dakota. Dorothy attended
church at Deep Creek.
It has been a beehive of activity
here at our ranch. The guys have
been busy with haying and field
work, along with construction
work on Randy's wood shop. Our
nephew, Colton Nickelson, is in
Spearfish this week helping Scott
Neuhauser with some electrician
duties. I was in Rapid City Friday,
getting supplies for the wedding
reception for our daughter,
Chelsea, and her husband, Mike
Hoy, which will be held at our
ranch this weekend. There will be
lots of friends and relatives here,
so there are tons of preparations to
be made. It sounds like the
weather is going to be great, thank
goodness! By next week, I'll no
doubt need a nap!
(this week’s news)
Greetings from sunny, bright,
beautiful, northeast Haakon
County. As much as I love the sun,
I am ready for some storm clouds
to bring us some rain. We are get-
ting pretty dry here – it is great for
the haying operations, but the row
crops and pastures could use some
Haying seems to be the opera-
tive word in our part of the world
these days. Everyone I talked to is
busy making bales. Or else they
are fixing their baler and using
bad language. Either way, it looks
like the livestock will have feed for
the winter, which is a wonderful
Nels and Dorothy Paulson are
among those dealing with equip-
ment problems. They got the bear-
ings fixed on the baler, but then
the water pump went out on the
tractor! Needless to say, Nels was
not happy. Neighbors, Max and
Todd Jones, were helping with the
repairs, but they found that they
needed to call in extra help for the
water pump. Nels was going to
switch tractors and see how that
works – I hope by now he is "mak-
ing hay"! Last weekend, Nels and
Dorothy went to a Paulson family
reunion in DeSmet. Del Paulson,
Pierre, rode along with them. They
stopped to pick up a few groceries
on the way home Sunday.
Dick and Gene Hudson have also
been busy haying and dealing with
their own machinery challenges.
Their challenge is a cylinder on a
chisel plow – according to Gene, it
had been "fixed" several times and
still didn't work! Dick and Gene
were in Rapid City Thursday to
keep a doctor's appointment, and
Saturday evening they attended a
reception at Neuhauser's.
Billy and Arlyne Markwed have
been busy helping their grandson,
T.J. Gabriel, with his haying oper-
ation. T.J. has also been having
baler challenges. It makes me
think that maybe we need to re-
cruit a baler mechanic to take up
residence in our community!
Sounds like there would be plenty
of work! Billy and Arlyne were at
Neuhauser's Saturday evening,
and Arlyne attended church Sun-
Jeanine Gabriel and children
were in Sioux Falls over the week-
end attending a family wedding.
They returned to the ranch Sun-
Jon and Connie Johnson have
been busy attending baseball
games, as their son Avery is a
member of a team in Philip. They
were in Philip Saturday for a
game, and they traveled to Dead-
wood Monday to watch the team. I
guess I didn't hear the scores. Jon
and Connie's son, Noah, attended
Victory Center Bible Camp near Ft.
Pierre last week, returning home
Friday. Avery and Wyatt Johnson
have been busy helping with
brandings and helping with the
haying operation.
Julian and Coreen Roseth at-
tended a Severtson family reunion
in the Black Hills over the week-
end. All of Coreen's siblings, her
mother, and most of the grandchil-
dren and great-grandchildren were
able to attend. The weather was
gorgeous, and there were lots of ac-
tivities to keep everyone busy. They
left Friday and returned home
Max and Joyce Jones were in
Rapid City Friday so Max could
keep a dermatologist appointment.
When they returned home, Max
got a call to go rescue a large
sprayer that was stuck in a dam. I
wonder if "auto-steer" had any-
thing to do with that?
Kelly Briggs and children were
in the Black Hills over the week-
end to meet up with some rela-
tives. Chase is busy haying.
Duane and Lola Roseth attended
a party at Coen and Trudie Klop-
per's Thursday evening. The Klop-
pers had been to Mt. Rushmore
and became U.S. citizens earlier in
the day. Congratulations, Coen
and Trudie! Saturday evening,
Duane and Lola attended the re-
ception at Neuhauser's.
Kevin Neuhauser has been busy
haying, just like the rest of the
neighborhood. He also helped with
the Shrine Circus that was held
last week in Pierre. Kevin and
Mary attended the reception at
Randy Neuhauser's Saturday
evening, and Sunday they at-
tended a baseball game at Four-
Corners. Kevin was one of the
umpires. He said it was a good
game, but the local team came up
one run short, losing by a score of
six to five.
Lee Briggs has been busy with
field work, but it sounds like he is
now finished planting. Mary
Briggs had cataract surgeries, one
on the 18th and one on the 25th.
She said she can see now, which is
wonderful! Mary's sister took her
to Rapid City for the first surgery,
and her daughter, Rea, and grand-
daughter Kinsey took her out for
the surgery on the 25th. They
spent the night in Whitewood at
Mary's daughter, Keva's, place.
While they were out there, Rea put
together a "tipsy planter" for Keva,
fashioned out of old galvanized
tubs and pails. Sounds cute! Lee
Briggs had a telephone meeting in
Wall last Wednesday, and then he
and Mary went to Sioux Falls for a
visit with her ear, nose and throat
doctor there. All in all, it was a
very busy, tiring week. Lee and
Mary stopped in to see Lil Briggs
Sunday, and cousin Kathy Peter-
son also stopped in that day. Lil
has good days and not so good
days – I'm hoping the good days
outnumber the bad!
Our week here was a whirlwind
of activity. We hosted a vow re-
newal ceremony and wedding re-
ception for our daughter, Chelsea,
and her husband, Mike Hoy, Sat-
urday. They were married in a civil
ceremony on 12-12-12, but we
wanted a chance to celebrate their
marriage, so we planned the party
at the ranch. Our daughter, Lori,
flew into Rapid City Wednesday
evening, and she and Chelsea
came to the ranch Thursday. Our
daughter, Jennifer, came from her
home in Salem Thursday morning.
Mike Hoy and his parents, Ken
and Sandy Hoy, San Antonio,
Texas, and his sister, Dana Sasso,
North Carolina, arrived at the
ranch Thursday afternoon. Jen-
nifer's husband, Ross, arrived at
the ranch later in the day Thurs-
day. Our son, Scott, and his family
arrived from Spearfish Friday.
Thank goodness for all the help
with the decorating, cooking,
clean-up, etc. The ceremony and
reception went off without a hitch,
and lots of neighbors, friends, and
relatives turned out to wish Mike
and Chelsea well. The weather
was perfect, and people were visit-
ing and dancing until the early
hours Sunday. By mid afternoon
Sunday, most everyone had re-
turned to their homes, and things
are slowly getting back to normal
This week, I am so grateful for
family. We are blessed to be sur-
rounded by so much love. And now
we have added Mike and his fam-
ily to ours! The more the merrier!
They are wonderful people.
I was unable to reach several of
the neighbors this week – it is such
a busy time of year. I hope every-
one will be careful and be safe.
Please go out and make this a
wonderful week!
