The path our life will take is always somewhat of a mystery. One never knows when an event will occur that will change our life and encourage us for years to come. As a junior in high school, Robin Peterson-Lund, along with her parents and brother, were involved in a terrible auto accident. “We were all injured in the accident, but I remember ever so clearly trying to do everything I could to help my mother, who was severely injured,” said Peterson-Lund. “Being in the middle of South Dakota, with limited access to health care, seeing my mother so hurt, and waiting for help, I knew then that I wanted to be able to help other people in need.” With that turning point in her life and the need for health care hitting so close to home, PetersonLund began focusing on a career in medicine. Attending the University of South Dakota’s nursing program was the beginning of a quest to fullfil a dream for a career in the medical field. Graduating in 1975 with an associate arts degree in nursing, she began working at Sioux Valley Hospital in Sioux Falls (now Sanford USD Medical Center) where she was a surgical nurse. While there she attended the state’s first open heart surgery in 1976. “The surgery took hours,” said Peterson-Lund. “We would normally do a few surgeries each day, but this was the only surgery scheduled for that day. There was a large staff, which rotated in and out to prevent fatigue, but the experience of the surgery and being part of medical history was amazing.” After some time, Peterson-Lund received a call from Dr. L.P. Swisher who expressed a need for nurses at the Kadoka hospital. With the opportunity to return to Kadoka, she made the move and began working at the hospital. “While growing up, my family lived away from the Kadoka area, but we always spent our summers here and we always considered Kadoka to be home for us,” said Peterson-Lund, “and I knew this is where I wanted to be.” While working at the Kadoka hospital, she gained valuable knowledge and experienced the best clinical practices with patient contact. “When I was working at the hospital in Kadoka, we did everything at that time from treating people with a cold to delivering babies,” she said with a smile. “Helping deliver babies, seeing them grow and the changes in their life over the years, it is an intergenerational connection and provides a strong community relationship. It really enforced the emotions I had to help not stop there. Having a PhD is a three-fold commitment, which includes teaching, research and presenting. Being a professor at the university, she teaches online classes from home, but also teaches classes in Rapid City. “I love teaching new students, but I am fascinated by the research,” she said smiling. “Being able to do clinical studies, visit with patients, collecting information and putting it all together to help improve health conditions is how our medical care advances.” Researching the frontier culture, which includes all nationalities living in the western part of South Dakota, has been her main focus. “Understanding the medical issues that face the people living here and to learn what would help them have a healthier lifestyle is the heart of my research.” she shared. Currently, she is working with Sanford Health researching living kidney donations to improve health outcomes, examining patients who are eligible for kidney transplants, and help recover their heath after the transplant. Once all the data is

collected, she will present it to other healthcare providers. “There is a multitude of ways to obtain the information, but sharing it with others and having it put into practice is the ultimate goal,” she explained. Recently, Peterson-Lund presented her findings to a international group of healthcare providers in Pittsburgh. “Those who attended the presentation were fascinated by the lifestyle in South Dakota. They were so interested in how we live, the survival wisdom, freedom and self-reliance that we have. They really did not understand living and working in a rural area, the healthcare challenges due to the availability of services and the distance we have to travel,” she said. “Trying to bridge the gap of the different cultures so we can understand the differences and the similarities to improve everyone’s quality of life. “If I am able to directly benefit anyone to improve their health outcomes by discovering new things, then I feel I have given a voice to the frontier people, and everyone deserves a voice,” she concluded.

She created an exercise conditioning program for the company's employees that helped prevent tendonitis. The program successfully lowered the incidence of the ailment and her findings were published in the American Association of Occupational Health Nursing Journal in 1979 under the title, “Prevention: A New Approach to Tendonitis.” Leaving Sioux Falls with a desire to continue her education, she moved to Rapid City where she worked at St. John’s Hospital, which is now Rapid City Regional Hospital, in the medical and surgical unit. While there, she earned a bachelor degree in nursing from the SDSU West River campus in 1981. “Becoming a nurse practioner was a goal I had set for myself,” she said. “Being a nurse first, you learn how to bring in the concept of getting to know the person, not just the patient, and know their lifestyle, and with this I felt I would be able to help them as their health care provider. I do strongly believe that understanding the person is just as important as understanding their health conditions.” Later in 1981, Peterson-Lund married Arnold Lund. In 1983, the couple moved to Kadoka, where she chose to be a stay-at-home mom for the next five years and raise their two children, Arne and Skye. Even at home, though, she didn't lose her enthusiasm to continue her education. “While the kids were in school and Arne was at work, that’s when I became a student,” she said, “but when they were home, I was a mother and a wife. Even though it took extra time to complete the college courses, it was important to me to take care of my family.” Obtaining her master’s in Nursing Advanced Practice happened in 1992, and she began working at the clinic and hospital in Philip and later Kadoka. “Caring and helping those who live here was very rewarding since I had known so many of them for most of my life,” she said smiling. “But the more I worked here, the more I understood how different our lives and our culture is compared to other parts of the country, and how healthcare providers from a larger population base do not always understand the rural lifestyle. “People are smart and sometimes I feel like the patients are underestimated,” she said. “When someone comes in with strep and pneumonia during calving time, you need to strategize to help treat the medical issues, because you know if you tell them to go home and rest it’s probably not going to happen.” But many doctors in urban settings do not understand the independence in western people. “People in this area have a greater survival wisdom that you do not see everywhere,” she said. “The determination to survive, the desire to help your neighbors and the strong sense of life knowledge you gain by living here is an experience that not everyone can understand.” But it was this lifestyle that she grew up around that generated the interest to continue her education. “I had always known that someday I wanted to obtain my doctor of philosophy and that making the choice to return to school would require some traveling, but living out here we are so used to traveling I knew that it was possible,” she said. Traveling to Rapid City a couple times a month, then to Sioux Falls for a few days for classes, and working through online classes, she obtained her PhD in December of 2011. “I believe any type of education is important at any age, whether it be from living life experiences or [going] to college,” she conveyed. Although she reached her goal of earning a PhD, the learning does
After a long journey, Peterson-Lund celebrates graduation day from South Dakota State University after earning a PhD in Nursing.
KCBA hosts “Cash Mob” at H & H Restaurant
Each month KCBA is hosting a “Cash Mob” at local businesses. Everyone is invited and encouraged to attend the “Cash Mob”. “Touring the businesses in Kadoka helps area residents see what services are offered and merchandise that is available to purchase. 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 business helps everyone.” The July KCBA “Cash Mob” was held at H & H Restaurant on Friday, July 26. Ken and Cindy Wilmarth had lunch specials to offer anyone who came to eat. Ken and Cindy enjoy serving the locals along with the tourists and offering a wide selection of great food from their menu. Please stop by and take time to enjoy a meal and friendly atmosphere. Be watching and plan to attend the next “Cash Mob.”
Kadoka Nursing Home resident of the month
Joy Parker was born April 1, 1917 on the ranch in Southern Cherry County near Brown Lee, Nebraska, to Charles and Jessie Ogle. She was one of nine children born to Charles and Jessie. She had five brothers and three sisters. Joy attended school through the eighth grade. She went on to marry Tomas M. Parker on October 27, 1940. Joy and Tomas had two girls. Martha Ann was born July 10, 1942, and Barbara Jo was born June 1, 1943. Joy has been blessed with six grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren. As an adult, Joy worked four years at Owl Inn, and she lived for 30 years in Cheyenne, Wyoming. She is an active member of the Presbyterian Church. Some hobbies, Joy enjoys are reading and solving word finds. There is not just one holiday that Joy enjoys, instead she loves all the holidays. One of Joy’s many loves is poetry. She can recite many poems from heart. Joy’s sister, Wionna Carson, lived in Kadoka. So, in 1995 she moved back to Kadoka to be with her family. Joy said she used to garden. She said there was nothing better that a fresh ripe tomato that had been ripened by the sun, or pulling a carrot out of the ground, wiping the dirt off and eating it. Joy talked about canning tomatoes. She used the open kettle process. She said she boiled them for 20 minutes. Then, she filled the hot jars with the cooked tomatoes. She said they sealed up great and kept for a very long time. Joy liked using this process because she could do small batches when she wanted and did not have to take all day canning. The staff at the nursing home speak highly of Joy. They say she is an awesome resident. She likes to have fun, and she appreciates all the staff and everything they do for her. We would like to congratulate Joy on being chosen as Kadoka Nursing Home’s Resident of the Month for August.
Lookin’ Around | Syd Iwan
How are you at feeble excuses? You know, the kinds of things you come up with to justify what you want to do. Take the cartoon I saw the other day where the man is reaching into the freezer at the grocery store and says, “We’d better buy some ice cream to keep the butter cool on the way home.” His wife looks on with a skeptical expression meaning she thinks the butter would arrive home just fine without the added coolant of the ice cream, but she doesn’t say anything. Chances are she’s thinking she might want to buy something they don’t really need as well and may have to come up with a similar bit of misdirection. Well, there’s nothing wrong with buying ice cream, but ice cream has been known to add poundage to a person and some of us don’t need that. You might have to come up with a good reason to buy it when maybe you really shouldn’t. There are other cases where similar circumstances may apply. For example, some folks claim they are going to the city to take advantage of the lower prices offered at discount stores and such. This has some credence because you can save substantially in certain cases. You have to remember, though, that the gas to get you there and back could well cost fifty bucks. So, let’s say laundry detergent sells for ten dollars a bottle locally and only six in the city. That saves you four dollars, but you’d have to buy over twelve bottles of it to save the cost of your traveling expenses. Either that or make cost-saving purchases on lots of other items. What I suspect is that people might want to go to the city to eat out, catch a movie, or find some other interesting forms of entertainment. That’s okay, but saying you’re going there to save money on things you need might not be the whole truth, so to speak. If you have to go to keep a doctor’s appointment or consult your tax man, that’s different. Some services are not available locally, and you have to drive a ways to find them. In that case, it does make some sense to shop while you’re there and save back a little of your gas expense. A few times, though, I’ve bought something in the city thinking I was saving money only to find it offered more cheaply close to home. This is irritating. As a result, I’ve had to reconsider my original idea that things can always be purchased more cheaply in big stores than little ones. It isn’t necessarily so. Impulse buying of weird stuff is can be a problem when you visit big stores. Then we come to cowboys. They have a million and one reasons why they should get on their horses and ride instead of, say, painting the barn or fixing the accursed tractor. They may need to check the cattle in general, check the fences, see if the salt supply is running low, and, of course, inspect the dams in case some critter has gotten itself stuck in the mud. What is difficult in terms of trying to refute any such excuses is that the Bible recommends, “Be sure you know the condition of your flocks; give careful attention to your herds.” There are times, of course, that nothing needs checking very badly once the calving season is over, the fences have been checked and rechecked, and the dams are full enough that mud isn’t a problem. This doesn’t keep your normal cowboy from dragging out these “needs” to go riding, but they should be taken for what they are instead of by how they’re explained. Ditto for cowgirls. The same thing might apply to four-wheelers which are just a kind of substitute for horse-back riding but also fun. I personally have dreamt up any number of compelling reasons to rev up our little four-wheeler and tear off across the prairie. Unfortunately, I married a schoolteacher who has a low-gullibility factor and tends to see right through me. That doesn’t keep me from trying though. Just today I told her that I needed to go to the steakhouse since I hadn’t been there in quite a while and they might think I didn’t love them anymore. She replied, “And because you’re tired of cooking.” “That too,” I agreed, and headed out. At the moment, I need to come up with some sort of lame excuse for taking a nap. I’ve been busy and productive today and have managed to tire myself out. Wait. Being tired is a legitimate reason for resting. I don’t have to make up an excuse. I can just go take a nap. That, therefore, is where I’m headed very shortly. Catch you later..

Keeping Interest Rates Low for Students
The days of summer are slowly fading. While there is still time before heading back to school, many college students and their families have been keeping a watchful eye for news coming out of Washington about what student loan interest rates will look like for the coming school year. On July 1, 2013, Federal Subsidized Stafford Loans returned from the temporary rate of 3.4 percent to 6.8 percent. The return to higher rates was part of legislation Congress passed in 2007, which provided a temporary, phased-in reduction of interest rates from 6.8 percent to 3.4 percent for Federal Subsidized Stafford Loans. This reduced interest rate was set to return to its fixed rate of 6.8 percent after July of 2012. However, last year, Congress enacted a one-year extension of the 3.4 percent rate. That extension expired on June 30, 2013. The recent rate change to 6.8 percent set many students and parents on edge about the cost of financing education. Unfortunately, while students were left wondering how they would shoulder the burden of higher interest rates, public disagreement between the president and Senate Democrats left legislation to provide relief to students at a standstill in the Senate. Thankfully, the Senate was able to reach a bipartisan agreement that will provide a sustainable, marketbased solution that ensures access and affordability for all students, including students with subsidized and unsubsidized loans. Previous Democrat proposals ignored the problem of high interest rates for other types of federal education loans and would have only addressed interest rates for 40 percent of student loan borrowers. This bipartisan proposal passed by the Senate reduces interest rates for all students. The Senate bill would allow rates to float with the U.S. Treasury 10-year borrowing rates, plus an add-on for costs associated with defaults, collections, deferments, forgiveness, and delinquency. This allows students to benefit from the current low interest rate environment while better protecting taxpayers from unnecessarily subsidizing lower rates, saving both students and taxpayers billions of dollars. The resulting interest rates for loans taken out this year, after July 1, 2013, would be 3.86 percent for subsidized and unsubsidized loans for undergraduate students, 5.41 percent on unsubsidized loans for graduate students, and 6.41 percent on PLUS loans for parents and graduate students. These rates would apply retroactively to newly issued loans taken out after July 1, 2013. The costs of attending college can create challenging and stressful situations for some families, but providing certainty about interest rates can help ease the burden. I am pleased that the Senate was able to reach a bipartisan, permanent market-based solution that lowers interest rates for all students.

Investing in Our Kids
Think back to the days of school lunches, study guides and late night homework. Sure the days seemed long and we may have been more excited about the big game that night than algebra, but what we all learned in the classroom gave us the foundation we needed for future education and jobs. I’ve always believed that decisions are best made at the local level – and this includes decisions relating to our education system. Recently, the House voted to reauthorize the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, commonly referred to as No Child Left Behind. The Student Success Act, which I supported, will restore local control, support effective teachers, reduce the federal footprint and empower parents. We all know that no one has a greater stake in student success than moms and dads who care deeply about their children’s future. This bill will give parents a stronger voice and allow them to become more hands-on in their child’s education. Included in the Student Success Act were bipartisan provisions I introduced alongside Rep. Rick Larsen (D-WA) that improve the Impact Aid program by increasing efficiency, eliminating subjectivity, and providing greater flexibility to school districts. Impact Aid helps many South Dakota school districts with costs resulting from large amounts of federally impacted land including military bases, Indian lands and federal property. We are currently operating under outdated policies that make it hard to get the best teachers possible in our schools. Great teachers have the ability to inspire and empower our children each day. This bill will eliminate ineffective federal teaching requirements and will instead switch the focus to classroom results. We should be supporting our teachers, not pressuring educators to “teach to the test.” In South Dakota, we know and understand that a one-size-fits-all approach doesn’t work. The needs of our rural schools are much different than schools in New York City. I believe it’s crucial that legislation take into account the differences between states, and that’s exactly what the Student Success Act does. Our children deserve the best education we can offer. In the face of stiff global competition for jobs and research opportunities, we expect a lot from our students, teachers and administrators. But with the proper support and accountability, I have no doubt that our students can and will be successful in tackling any challenges they may encounter. I hope you’ll take a moment to send me an email through my website to share your thoughts on education reform and perhaps share a story about one of your favorite teachers. You can email me at http://noem.house.gov.
SD Dept. of Veterans Affairs | Larry Zimmerman
At a time when American troops are bravely serving their country, we are reminded of the sacrifices of previous generations of Americans who risked or gave their lives for the freedom we all enjoy today. August is full of opportunities to honor our veterans. This year legislation was enacted designating August 7 as “Purple Heart Recognition Day,” – a working holiday dedicated to remember and recognize those members of the Armed Forces of the United States who have earned the Purple Heart Medal for wounds received in combat. So as August 7 approaches, let us not forget the men and women of our armed forces who have received the Purple Heart and who have gone above and beyond the call of duty to preserve our freedom. Another great opportunity to thank our military personnel, our veterans, and their families is to attend Veterans Day at the South Dakota State Fair on August 29. This is a special day to recognize the sacrifices and successes of those who have served in the Armed Forces, both past and present. At 10:30 a.m. there will be a “Salute to Veterans” on the Northwest Energy Freedom Stage (Recreation Avenue). Representatives from the South Dakota Department of Veterans Affairs, the veteran’s service organizations and the county and tribal veteran’s service officers will have an informational booth in the Veterans Building on Flag Avenue. This booth will be staffed throughout the span of the fair and will give veterans an opportunity to talk to experts about benefits and programs available to them. Veterans attending school this fall at one of South Dakota’s universities or technical schools, please remember to make contact with the school’s certifying officials. They are a great resource to assist you in transitioning from soldier to student. South Dakota is fortunate to have over 75,000 veterans – 75,000 men and women who have proudly served this country and are deserving of benefits they have earned. I challenge each of you to reach out to veterans in your family and ask them “Have you ever visited with your veteran’s service officer to see if you qualify for any benefits?” Encourage them to make that contact. A listing of the veterans service officers can be found at: http://mva.sd.gov/vet_ service_officers.html It is important that we honor the men and women in uniform who have made tremendous sacrifices in the defense of our nation and who remind us of their valor and service.

Breaking the Gridlock and Securing Our Economic Future
This week, President Obama laid out a vision for America’s economic future. Since day one, the Obama Administration has been focused on our nation’s economic recovery, and over recent years we’ve seen positive signs of growth. Businesses have created more than 7 million new jobs over the past 40 months. The housing market is coming back. Led by the tremendous productivity of America’s farmers and ranchers, our nation’s exports are growing. But we also know that much remains to be done, and there’s no excuse for letting up. The President is squarely focused on building a strong middle class. He is committed to ensuring that every American has the opportunity to secure a good job, a quality education, a dependable place to call home, a secure path to retirement and affordable health care with decent benefits. Those opportunities are just as important for folks who call rural America home. At USDA, we have laid out a vision to rebuild the rural economy and create a strong middle class in rural America. In recent years we’ve expanded markets for agriculture and rural business, while laying the groundwork for new growth in the coming generation. With Washington suffering from too much gridlock today, President Obama pledged that he’ll do everything within his executive power to keep making progress. At USDA we’ll continue our own efforts, building on the record results we’ve achieved in recent years. Meanwhile we will continue to work with Congress to break the gridlock and accomplish big things. For rural America, Congress must act as soon as possible to pass a comprehensive Food, Farm and Jobs Bill, which is crucial for USDA’s efforts to grow the rural economy and provide new income in rural communities. Additionally, by fixing America’s broken immigration system, Congress can strengthen American agriculture, grow the rural economy, and create a commonsense system that works for farmers and farm workers alike. Over the coming months, President Obama will continue to discuss his vision for a strong middle class. He’ll outline steps that can be taken by the administration, by Congress and by other partners to help grow the economy. Folks in our small towns and rural communities can help lead the way on that effort, and USDA will stand with rural America every step of the way.
Social Security | Howard Kossover, Public Affairs Specialist
Your questions, our answers
Q: My son will be 18 in a few months. He is disabled since birth, lives in a group home, and receives Supplemental Security Income (SSI). I am Representative Payee for his benefits and my wife and I recently were appointed as his guardians. For SSI, is there anything that I need to do prior to him becoming 18? A: Even though administered by the Social Security Administration, Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a very different program from Social Security. SSI pays benefits to disabled adults and disabled children who have limited income and resources. SSI benefits also are payable to people 65 and older without disabilities who meet the financial limits. People may also be able to receive Social Security as well as SSI. In general, since your son is younger than age 18, the original medical decision used to establish his Supplemental Security Income eligibility was based on childhood criteria. Near age 18, expect a medical review to see if he meets adult disability requirements for benefits to continue. SSA does not recognize power of attorney. A representative payee is appointed by Social Security to manage SSA and SSI funds of beneficiaries who are incapable of doing. Payee responsibilities are outlined in A Guide for Representative Payees at http://www.ssa.gov/pubs/EN-0510076.pdf. Since you are his payee, a SSA representative will contact you for updated information for the medical review. You will also update non-medical information, including about his income, financial resources and living arrangements. Remember to report that you and your wife have been appointed your son’s legal guardians so that his SSI record can be updated. Something for the future: Since your son’s disability began prior to age 22, he might become eligible for Social Security benefits upon retirement of you or your wife.

Belvidere News | Syd Iwan, 381-2147
Chuck and Merry Willard drove to Pinedale, WY, on Friday to the home of their daughter and family. On Saturday, they loaded up their daughter, granddaughter and a horse and headed back home. This was Coleen, Frankie, and a horse named Jim. Merry said it sounded like something out of a countrywestern song especially if you could add in something about a train. They went as far as Gillette on Saturday where they stayed in a motel and housed the horse with a friend of Coleen’s husband, Billy Gransden. On Sunday they drove the rest of the way home after doing a bit of shopping in Rapid City. Back at the ranch, Frankie kept busy gathering eggs and running around the place. On the way out, they’d picked up some meat at the locker and taken it with them for Coleen. Next weekend, daughter Niki will join the group and they’ll all head up to Trail City for the wedding of Merry’s niece who is the daughter of her youngest brother. Coleen plans to stay at least a week and maybe more. She was looking forward to helping brand a few late calves on Monday. While Chuck and Merry were gone, Tom DeVries came down, did chores, and looked after things. He also brought an alfalfa bale for the chickens, and the birds were delighted with it since they thought the leaves were real tasty. John and Jamie Dolezal and kids were visited on Sunday by Jamie’s uncle and cousin, Monte and Brady Schofield, of Midland. They just hung out and visited. They also visited Jamie’s dad, Kirby, next door. Kirby’s wife, Nancy, was gone at the time since she was working at 1880 Town. She’d worked there some in the morning, taken time off to go to church in Belvidere, and then returned for another stint. Jamie said they are heavily into haying as well as breaking down, fixing, and haying some more. She also was glad that the tomatoes have started ripening since they’ve had three ripe ones already with more getting close. Barring damage from weather or bugs, they should have them coming out their ears before long since they got a little carried away planting them this spring. That will be okay. Mary Johnston was visited most of last week by her sister, Janine Barbknetch, of Waseca, MN, and Janine’s granddaughter, Erica. One day they all went to the Black Hills where they viewed Mt. Rushmore but not the Reptile Gardens. Mary said she sees all the snakes she needs to see locally without purposely going to see more. The Hills trip was just a day trip and not overnight. On other days, they visited Larry and Lonny Johnston and families. On Saturday, Gay Logan of Philip came to stay overnight and help Mary celebrate her birthday. Gay and Mary get together twice a year to celebrate their birthdays with supper eaten out and such. They went to Club 27 in Kadoka for supper on Saturday and attended church together in Belvidere on Sunday. Mary’s birthday is actually on July 30, but the weekend was a better time to celebrate it than on Tuesday. Other than that, Mary said they are trying to wait patiently for the wheat to dry out enough to be harvested. Kenny and Roxie Fox attended a Fox family reunion last weekend over south of Carter which is not too far from Mission. It was held at the home of Dawn Littau who organized the event which drew maybe sixty people or so. A lot of Kenny’s relatives live west of here by Newell and in that area, but his grandfather actually started over north of Mission which accounts for relatives now being over that way. The reunion was a three-day event although Kenny and Roxie only stayed there two nights. Son Wade didn’t attend the reunion, however. He went to Rapid City instead. Eve Fortune tried her hand at driving a semi this week. It was her first time at that, and she said it went okay. She mostly drove in a field but at least didn’t hit any hay bales or anything. She hasn’t decided yet if she wants to learn more and try for a CDL license, which her husband, Chuck, thinks would be a good thing. It isn’t completely necessary since Bob Fortune does have a CDL, and having that license is only really necessary by law if you drive over 150 miles from home. Betty Kusick went fishing with her son and grandson, Kenny and Kevin, on Saturday. The guys can fish quite a long time so Betty was a little tired at the end of the expedition. She did manage to catch a six-pound bass, though, which made her day. The guys didn’t have quite that good a luck, but did catch some fish. At one point, Betty’s fishing reel got all snarled up but Kenny was able to put it right with a little time and effort. When they got home, Kevin cleaned all their fish and left them with Betty. Syd, Corinne and Chance Iwan were visited by nieces and nephews this week. On Monday, Corinne’s niece, Janelle Rose, stopped by with her husband, Troy, of North Carolina. They were running around the country visiting lots of relatives. Troy is a lieutenant commander in the Navy where he started as an enlisted man and then became an officer later on. He is getting close to mandatory retirement when he reaches thirty years of service, and that doesn’t please him. He likes the Navy a lot and would just as soon stay in longer if he could. On Sunday, Syd’s nephew, Jason Jones, of Pierre came through with his wife, Tasha. They were on motorcycles and had been visiting Jason’s aunt and her husband who have a “cabin” near Deadwood. The so-called cabin is two stories plus a basement and isn’t exactly what one thinks of as a little cabin in the woods. While there, they took in some of the Days of ’76 events with their two young kids who had gone there with their aunt so Jason and Tasha could ride their cycles.

May we of the Gateway Apartments residents extend a warm welcome to a new resident Tammy Soulak who is moving in this week. Also, may we extend a warm welcome to Joe Hoffman who is a resident, and now our new maintenance and on call apartment manager. Remember, this is a big building with unexpected problems. Joe is busy now painting, cleaning and redoing emptied rooms for new residents. May we wish the best for Bryan and his wife, Brenda, for their future. I drove to Philip last week to attend a meeting hosted by AARP on some of the rules about Medicare and Social Security. There were several of the guests who took part in the question and answer session. We were not busy at the CAP office last week. I stopped at the library to take some outdated books to the laundromat and to our give away on the benches here at the apartments. The Guideposts sure went fast. I showed the librarian a book I found, Being a Widow. It is really worth reading. I just returned from visiting friends at the care center. They are delightful people. That was about my third visit this week. I met Dick Pinney in the hall just a bit ago. He was on his way to the south end of the apartments to visit with some friends.

The summer reading program, “Dig into Reading,” at the Jackson County Library had a special treat this Wednesday when Craig Coller of West River Excavation paid the readers a visit. Each week, the children explore a different topic on the theme of digging. From planting seeds to worm races to growing crystals, there is always something new to learn. And this week was no exception as the theme of digging turned to mechanical marvels that dig. A story was shared about the trucks, loaders, backhoes and crews that are all an important part of building the roads that link town to town. Then the children divided into two groups to work on their art projects or journals. After they were done, the children had a special surprise and group went outside to where Coller had his backhoe waiting. He told the children about the backhoe, how this equipment is used, and helped each into the “driver’s seat” for a photo. It was the highlight of the day! It was so fun to have West River Excavation here and Coller for taking time out of his busy work schedule to come and share about his work and equipment. The summer reading program was made richer by his participation. Only two more weeks remain in the summer reading program for 2013, We welcome children ages two-12 interested in taking part, to come on down to the Jackson County Library on Main Street in Kadoka. It’s never too late to “Dig into Reading!” -- photos submitted

Babies and toddlers aren’t the only ones who need immunizations. Parents should be aware that their preteens and college freshmen also need to be vaccinated, said a state health official. “College freshmen who live in dorms and unvaccinated kids entering high school are at high risk for meningococcal disease and should be vaccinated,” said Dr. Lon Kightlinger, state epidemiologist for the Department of Health. “And eleven and twelve yearolds need a booster shot for pertussis.” Meningococcal disease is a bacterial infection resulting in inflammation of the tissues covering the brain and spinal cord. Symptoms include fever, severe headache, stiff neck, vomiting and a rash. Ten to fourteen percent of people with the disease die and up to nineteen percent of survivors may suffer permanent disabilities such as hearing loss, limb amputations or brain disease. South Dakota typically reports three cases of meningococcal disease a year. To date in 2013, four cases have been reported. Meningococcal vaccine is available from family health care providers and campus student health centers. The department provides the vaccine for eleven to eighteen year-olds who are eligible for the federal Vaccines for Children Program (Medicaid eligible, Native American or Alaskan Native, uninsured or underinsured). The vaccine is free for these children but providers may charge an administration fee. Whooping cough, or pertussis, is a serious illness that causes uncontrollable coughing, rib fractures, pneumonia, loss of consciousness and even death. Infants are at highest risk, with two-thirds of those under age one infected needing hospitalization. There have been eleven pertussis cases reported in South Dakota to date in 2013; three of those cases have been younger than one. A pertussis vaccine booster dose is recommended at eleven to twelve years when immunity begins to wane. The initial pertussis series is given to children at two months, four months, six months, fifteen to eighteen months, and four to six years. The department provides the childhood series of whooping cough vaccine and the booster dose free for eleven to fourteen year olds. Providers may charge an administration fee. Find a vaccine provider at doh.sd.gov/local-offices/vaccineproviders/. Learn more about meningitis or whooping cough at doh.sd.gov/diseases/infectious/diseasefacts/.

Badlands Bad River SET held in Interior
SET Session #7 was hosted by the Interior community on Wednesday, July 17. The new Fire Hall served as our location, with a brief history of the community provided by Cliff McClure and Linda Livermont. A picnic supper was served. SET #7 had a theme of Identifying Assets in the Region. The group was given handouts that helped individual’s assess both their personal and their leadership skills. These handouts could be adapted as committees form around goals, and certain skill sets are needed in the committees. A Voluntary Assoc./Local Institutions assessment was examined as another tool that could be used to assess how those groups could help the region meet its goals. The Community Capitals framework was reviewed. Discussion was held on how developing one capital in the region could easily lead to the spiraling up of other capitals with some work and focus. The other piece that was discussed in relation to goals and strategies was the barriers that we need to recognize as we move forward. It will be far better to face these barriers on the front end of our work. The bulk of our time was spent in small groups that aligned with the industry clusters chosen by the group at the last session. Here are the groups and the strategies they chose to develop: •Value-Added Agriculture – “Connecting Local Producers to Consumers” •Tourism – “Capitalizing on regional museums and finding local artifacts to display” •Telecommunications – “Acting as a wholesaler of high-quality cable for smaller telecom companies” The groups used this sample worksheet to develop their strategies: •Groups identified specific people or groups of people, Voluntary associations, Formal institutions, and Physical Resources that are already in our region, and can be tapped into as assets for our goals and strategies. Here is a brief report of each group’s work: Value-Added Ag: This group is interested in a marketing campaign to highlight local producers and get them connected to consumers. A possible profile of the producer and what they grow could be put into a brochure, listed on a website, and promoted across the region in many ways. Tourism: This group identified several local museums in our region. They proposed a guided tour to the various communities that could be initiated as a private business, or done through a public entity. The tour could be done on a bus with a pre-recorded guide, or a live guide. Museums would be encouraged to set hours that aligned with the bus tours, and to spruce up exhibits and keep them current. SD School of Mines was identified as a regional resource that could be used, and SD Historical Society could help. Telecommunications: A need for high-quality cable by smaller telecommunications companies was identified, with an opportunity for our region to be a wholesale provider. An empty building, possibly in Kadoka, could house the inventory, and connections could be made through Golden West. This idea may lead to leakages that could be plugged in other areas of telecommunications materials, by using our region as a supplier. The worksheet used to develop these strategies could be used to build any other ideas the region wants to pursue. Homework: •Use the Voluntary Associations/Formal Institutions sheet to analyze one other group you are involved in. Try to choose a group or entity that could be an asset to SET. •Use the ABCD/Capitals worksheet and fill in the blanks for another strategy you would like to see the region pursue for economic development. The next meeting will be held on Thursday, August 15 in Kadoka. The exact time and location will be announced. We will be looking at around the 5:30 p.m. time to begin the session, with a possible optional tour first. --submitted by Kari O’Neill
Mellette County Livestock Show nears
In a few weeks (Aug. 21, 2013), the Mellette County Livestock Improvement Association will host the 19th annual Pen of 3 Heifer Show in White River, SD. Within the previous 18 shows, there have been small changes, but nothing like the changes taking place this year. In the past, cattle in the English breed division, have been separated according to weights taken the day of the show. Half of the pens were designated Lightweight, and the other half Heavyweight. This year weights will be taken as cattle are registered and will be entered in divisions according to date of birth. This will be done with not only the English divisions, but also the Purebred divisions. The divisions will be as follows: English: Early Spring (calves born in Jan.-Feb.); English: Mid-Spring (calves born in Mar.); English: Late Spring (calves born in April-May); Purebred: Early Spring (calves born in Jan. -Feb.); Purebred: MidSpring (calves born in March); Purebred: Late Spring (calves born in April-May). The board of directors felt that it would encourage more consistency in the judging process, where, for example, calves born in April would not be competing in the same division as calves born in February. In an effort to encourage young cattle producers to become involved, an entirely new division called the Young Ranchers Heifer Calf Division. This division is only open to producers under the age of 30. They must own the calf and have their own brand. Each young rancher will be allowed to enter a single heifer calf in this division. All of these calves will be penned together for judging purposes. Knowing that some of these young ranchers might be in high school or college at the time of the livestock show, they may have a parent or other adult bring their calf to the show for them, but they will have to be able to show that the calf belongs to the young rancher, and not a parent or other producer. A division of Feeder Steer Calves will also be included this year, as in the past two years. Any producer may enter one steer calf in this competition. All steers will be penned together for judging, the trophies be awarded for the Champion and Reserve Champion Feeder Steer calf. This livestock show, although held in White River, SD, is open to producers from across the area. The date of the show this year is Wed., August 21. Cattle will be checked in from 8:30 - 10:30 a.m. CT, with judging at 11 a.m. A free beef lunch is provided to all attendees, as well as numerous door prizes, of which you have to be present to win. There is no fee to enter cattle in this show. If you would like additional information, you may contact MCLIA President Dan Krogman at 605-259-3688.

A God of Grace
Read John 1:14-18 Imagine receiving a big beautifully wrapped gift when there’s no particular occasion—the sender simply chose to do this for you. Inside the package is something very special. Eagerly, you read the card to discover who could have been so generous. To your amazement, you learn that the giver is someone you have been avoiding—and to whom you have been unkind! What do you do? This scenario is a picture of the Father’s grace in sending His Son Jesus to earth for us. There was no special occasion; God simply had the desire to do it. The present arrived, despite the fact that we were either passively ignoring the Lord or actively rebelling against Him. This is grace—God’s goodness and kindness extended to those who do not deserve it and have no possible way to earn it. In the Son, we see the fullness of God’s kindness revealed. Jesus fully met all the requirements of divine law by living a perfect life on earth; because of His sinless life as a man, He was qualified to pay the price for our rebellious ways. He did this by sacrificing His life on the cross to pay for all our sins— past, present, and future. So, when we receive Him as our Savior, God counts Jesus’ death as payment for all we have done wrong. What’s more, upon our salvation, Christ’s perfect life is counted as our own; His righteousness becomes ours through faith (Rom. 4:5). What will you do with God’s gift of grace—refuse it, or say “thank You” and make an effort to get to know Him? And if you already do know Christ, have you been taking Him for granted?

SPECIAL MEETING BOARD OF JACKSON COUNTY COMMISSIONERS July 17, 2013
The Board of Jackson County Commissioners met in special session at 1:00 p.m., Wednesday, July 17, 2013 in the Commissioner's Room of the Jackson County Courthouse.

An inquiry was made as to whether full time employees could donate sick leave to part time employees that do not accrue sick leave. It was consensus of the board that donation of sick leave by full time employees to part time employees would be allowed, but the full time employees are to be made aware that the part time employee would not be able to donate hours back to them. The billing from 3B’s Heating and Air Conditioning for installation of the new propane furnace and air conditioner was presented to the board. The billing was for the total amount of $13,954.11. Denke moved, Johnston seconded, that one-half of the billing be paid at this time. The draft 2014 Jackson County budget was reviewed. The board requested that the salary information presented be revised. Discussion was held on setting up a separate fund or funds to accumulate funds for building replacement and equipment replacement.

14th Annual R-CALF Convention in Pierre
Convention brings experts from across the county.
R-CALF USA will hold its 14th Annual Convention in Pierre on August 2 and 3 at the Best Western Ramkota Hotel, located at 920 W Sioux Ave. "We're very excited to have a number of experts sharing their knowledge and experience with those in attendance," said RCALF USA Membership Services Coordinator Laurel Masterson. "This year we're bringing speakers from around the country to Pierre so ranchers can learn firsthand from knowledgeable experts." The 14th Annual Convention will host two well-known protectors of private property rights. The first, Cliven Bundy, will speak Friday morning. Bundy is a Nevada rancher who is now the only rancher left in Nevada's Clark County. Also speaking on individual rights is Sheriff Richard Mack. Sheriff Mack was Graham County, Arizona, Sheriff from 1988-1997. In 1994, he along with six other sheriffs fought against the Brady Bill and finally won in the U.S. Supreme Court. Now Sheriff Mack is an author, speaker, consultant and a strong advocate of states' rights and individual freedoms. He will speak Saturday morning. Brian O'Shaughnessy, Chairman of Revere Copper Products, will discuss the Trans-Pacific Partnership Free Trade Agreement and other trade issues Friday afternoon. O'Shaughnessy served as Revere's President & CEO for almost twenty years until the end of 2007. He is attending the R-CALF USA convention as a board member and President of the Coalition for a Prosperous America. Also on Friday, Roger McEowen will present and overview of key legal cases that will have a profound and lasting effect on U.S. cattle producers. McEowen is the Leonard Dolezal Professor in Agricultural Law at Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa, where he is also the Director of the ISU Center for Agricultural Law and Taxation. Back again this year is Dudley Butler to talk about livestock markets. Butler recently returned to his law practice after spending three years as Administrator of the Grain Inspection, Packers and Stockyards Administration (GIPSA). He was appointed to this position by USDA Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack. In addition to these guest speakers, R-CALF USA will also feature internal experts during the convention. However, one voice will be sorely missed this year. The loss of R-CALF USA Board Member and talented convention emcee, Joel Gill, will be felt by everyone attending convention. Although no one can replace Gill, Bob Thullner of Herreid, SD, has graciously agreed to fill this role. The business session, where proposed policy resolutions are brought forward and directors nominated, will take place Saturday afternoon. The convention finishes with an evening banquet, awards and a showcase of RCALF USA-member talents. Friday evening's activities will be held at the Casey Tibbs Rodeo Center . The highlight of the event is a presentation of a hand-made saddle by Baxter Badure to the Rodeo Center in memory of the late Johnny Smith.

SD Dept. of Ag launches county site analysis program
As part of its continuing efforts to enhance local economic development opportunities, the South Dakota Department of Agriculture (SDDA) has partnered with First District Association of Local Governments and Development District III to launch a county site analysis program. This program is designed to help counties plan for the future by providing local officials with resource-based information to assist them in making well-informed decisions. Site analyses include information on local zoning ordinances, permitting requirements and the availability of infrastructure. “With agriculture consistently investing in rural South Dakota, the need for information related to economic development opportunities has never been greater,” said Lucas Lentsch, South Dakota Secretary of Agriculture. “We’re pleased to offer this program to help counties identify the right opportunities, in the most effective locations.” The county site analysis process features a broad overview of locations that could host a variety of economic development projects, including manufacturing, commodity processing and livestock-related enterprises. “Because South Dakota’s ag industry is so vast, there are a wide range of opportunities,” said Paul Kostboth, SDDA’s Director of Ag Development. “By undertaking a detailed analysis of the possibilities available within an individual county, local governments can better consider which types of investments best fit their long-term goals.” Site analyses will be provided to interested counties free of charge, upon formal request of the County Commission and will be conducted by local planning and development districts.
