Babies and toddlers aren't the only ones who need immunizations. Parents should be aware that their pre-teens and college freshmen also need to be vaccinated, says 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 11 and 12-year-olds 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 rash. Ten to 14 percent of people with the disease die and up to 19 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 11 to 18year-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 twothirds of those under age 1 infected needing hospitalization. There have been 11 pertussis cases reported in South Dakota to date in 2013; three of those cases have been younger than 1. A pertussis vaccine booster dose is recommended at 11-12 years when immunity begins to wane. The initial pertussis series is given to children at 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, 15-18 months, and 4-6 years. The department provides the childhood series of whooping cough vaccine and the booster dose free for 11-14 year olds. Providers may charge an administration fee.

When Leafy Spurge's yellow flowers begin to bloom, landowners can evaluate the effectiveness of their control program, says Paul Johnson, SDSU Extension Agronomy Field Specialist. “If you have been doing a good job at control in the past, it maybe a little slower and if you have been doing a really good job, there may even be fewer plants out there than last year,” Johnson said. He adds that the only way to get spurge under control is to be on it every year and get the root reserves depleted so the plants will start to die. “A cold winter helps takeout the spurge when the root reserves have been depleted,”Johnson said. “As soon as the yellow flowers are out it is time to start spraying.” Johnson says the control window is only about one month before there will be viable seed in the plant. “If you also have thistles in with the spurge you may want to wait a little until thistles are at bud to make sure you get good coverage and control on both of the weeds,” he said. But again, Johnson says be careful not to wait to long. “Waiting too long only allows the root reserves to build back up in the plant and then you will not make progress on getting rid of the

plants. Instead, they will come back stronger than ever,” he said. New Control Tools Available Based on SDSU test plots in Moody County a new compound called Perspective®looks like it should be as good as Tordon® in controlling Leafy Spurge, but Johnson says this compound has fewer use-restrictions; and it is more environmentally friendly. “It should be able to be used in more areas tat have a shallow ground water problem,” he said. “This is the first new product that has effect on thistles and spurge that has been developed in the last 40 years.” At present Perspective® is not labeled on any areas that are cropped or hayed, Johnson says until more labeling is done, it will be limited on where it can be used. Also some grass injury will need to be tolerated with its use. “Usually the grass will recover the next year,”he said. “And, I always want readers to know that use of product’s names does not imply endorsement. information is based on SDSU research observations.” Before use, landowners need to verify information on current product labels prior to application.

Ethan and Elijah Harpster competed in Perkins County 4-H July Special Events Day. Both boys presented a talk on various topics. Ethan spoke of the importance of firearm safety and Elijah informed the public of the problems that can occur by bullying. Both boys earned a purple ribbon for their talks and were very knowledgeable on their topics.

Mother-Daughter Moments
windrower or on the tractor. We have to pay attention to the equipment we’re operating and what’s ahead and behind us. By the time we’ve covered all the subjects teenage girls like to talk about including boys, earning money, friendships, and her wish list of things she wants to buy, we move on to the important topics at hand. We ask each other what the other person thought Dad said to do next once we’re done windrowing or raking a field. Sometimes we speculate or make wagers on what Dad’s going to say about some of the “mess” we left behind when we windrowed, hay we missed raking, or how we should cut or rake sketchy corners and odd shaped areas we’re approaching. We base a lot of our decisions on our gut feeling telling us what we should do. I share the tips and tricks I’ve learned on cutting and raking hay, but most importantly, what I’ve learned the hard way. I give all my advice on preventive breakdown suggestions to keep the windrower from breaking down while she’s operating it. When we rake together, I ride behind her on the Ford tractor (1949 Ford 8N) and show her when to make turns with the rake and how I make turns without missing any hay if possible. Just to clarify, I don’t spend time with my daughter only windrowing and raking. She and I have hauled water together before when wells were too low to keep up with livestock demands or went dry. Those mother-daughter moments entailed driving to the Pringle well, waiting while the tanks filled up, hauling it out to the stock tanks, and waiting some more while we dumped water into the stock tanks—all perfect chat time. Windrowing or raking alone can get pretty boring, except when I’m teaching my daughter the finer points of cutting and raking hay. Cutting and raking together not only makes the time go by faster, but it gives me an alibi. I can blame my haying errors and mishaps on our daughter’s learning curve. If I leave a strip of hay, drag a rock a long way, break sickle teeth while windrowing, or miss hay while raking because we were talking too much and didn’t pay attention, I can blame teaching our daughter. She and I talk a lot of while we’re haying, but what I love best about our mother-daughter windrowing and raking moments is that she listens to my advice.

Most mothers take their 13-year old daughters shopping or out to lunch for a mother-daughter day. I take mine windrowing or raking. Farm and ranch life provides unconventional mother-daughter time. All-day shopping trips are hard to come by when the nearest mall is 60 miles away and leaving ranch responsibilities takes strategic planning ahead. In order to have mother-daughter time, my daughter and I capitalize on our time spent doing ranch work together. We spend quality time in the windrower cutting hay or on the tractor raking. Like all teen girls, my daughter loves to talk. Other mothers of teenagers have told me car rides make it easier to have a conversation with their teens because teens don’t have to make any eye contact in the car. This is most true when my daughter and I are in the

This past week the West River Regional Extension Horticulture Department held a Hands on Training for Master Gardeners. Geraldine Peck, Joyce Orwick and Karen Englehart joined 22 others on a six hour walking tour of various garden sites in Rapid City as part of the Continuing Education program for Master Gardeners to update and renew their certification as Master Gardeners. There is always something new to learn and this session was jam packed. A good hat, walking shoes and a bottle of water were needed accessories. First on the agenda was looking at some vegetable garden specimens that were severely misshapen and clearly had a problem. As seen in these photos both were suffering from herbicide drift, namely 2-4 D. Even though the zucchini managed to survive the attack (still blooming and setting on fruit) the fruit it produces should not be eaten. The herbicide 2-4 D stays in the plant, transfers through the plant to the fruit and ultimately will end up in your system if you eat the zucchini, tomatoes, beans or whatever in your garden has been damaged by the herbicide. You need to destroy the whole plant even though it may be loaded with fruit. Although 2-4 D is the herbicide of choice to kill broad leaf weeds, it is notorious for drifting to where it is not wanted. Care should be taken to not endanger your neighbor’s plants. 2-4 D, once applied to the offending weeds today can be a danger tomorrow if the temperature and conditions are right. This herbicide can rise up from the weeds and drift to the good plants causing the damage you see in these photos, perhaps to a lesser degree. This action is called “out gassing”. As with all chemicals, read and follow the manufacturer’s instructions as to appli-

cation and appropriate weather conditions. As the day went on we observed various trees, shrubs and herbaceous plants with varying troubles, insect damage, aphids, fungi, and soil deficiencies. Over an hour was spent walking with Dr. John Ball through the arboretum along Rapid Creek, observing different trees species as well as trees with stresses, diseases, being planted too deep, too close together, and errors in maintenance. The day was concluded at the demonstration gardens near the Canyon Lake Senior Citizen Center. That garden as well as the “Children’s Garden” were looking a little sad due to being hit by a least two hail storms and nasty ground fleas. No chemicals are used in the garden therefore the ground fleas were much happier than the plants. Remember to pamper those pumpkins for the 2013 Pumpkin Fest heaviest pumpkin contest – Oct.19th.

Pastors Perspective
Pastor Calvin Chapman

Productive pain? That seems like a contradiction in terms. Most of our efforts are attempts to reduce the pain in our lives, be it physical, emotional, social, or financial pain. So, how can pain be productive? Let us see what God’s word says: Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. (James 1:2-4 NAS)

And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. (Romans 8:28 NAS) This verse confirms that some bad things may happen to us during life on earth. But, for those who love their Creator and are following His call in Christ, the end result of all the things that they experience will be good! Although He was a Son, He learned obedience from the things which He suffered. And having been made perfect (complete, whole, mature), He became to all those who obey Him the source of eternal salvation, (Hebrews 5:8-9 NAS) The example of Jesus showed us how God can take our negatives and turn them into His great positives. The Heavenly Father worked through all the pain and suffering of His Son to “grow Him up” and make Him the Total Person that the Plan called for Jesus to be. … in everything give thanks; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus. (1Thessalonians 5:18 NAS) So, what conclusion for followers of Jesus? This was the end result in the life of Jesus:

The Christian perspective can embrace trials, pain, and suffering because of what God can do in all of life’s situations. God can take all bad situations and work them for the good in our lives, to complete and mature us:

South Dakota FFA members discover “The Places They’ll Go” at Summer Leadership Training

The Bison Courier • Thursday, August 1, 2013 • Page 7

State FFA Officers and Ambassadors at Mt. Rushmore (L to R) Ambassador Kyle Kramer, Flandreau; Reporter Carrietta Schalesky, Bison; Treasurer David Strain, Sturgis; Vice President Breanna Bullington, Brookings; Secretary Cheyenne Leonhardt, Groton; President makayla Heiser, Newell; Sentinel Shala Larson, Webster; Ambassador Courtney Schaeffer, Menno; and National Eastern Region Vice President Joenelle Futrell. The South Dakota FFA Association conducted its annual Leadership Retreats July 9-12, at Camp Bob Marshall, Custer and July 1618 at Swan Lake, Viborg. A total of 146 students from 46 chapters throughout the state discovered “The Places They’ll Go” with FFA. The retreats centered on a Dr. Seuss theme, focusing on “Oh, The Places You’ll Go with FFA.” FFA members developed and enhanced their leadership skills and selfconfidence through interactive learning. The program featured workshops that helped members discover the value of attitude, motivation, passion, personal growth, teamwork, and communication. The SD Department of Agriculture organized a panel of agricultural industry professionals to speak with FFA members about opportunities in agriculture. They will use these new skills and ideas to benefit their local chapters and communities. Retreat attendees also participated in service learning projects. Those attending Camp Bob Marshall worked on several projects in conjunction with the City of Custer and those attending Swan Lake packed 28,728 meals for Kids Against Hunger. National FFA Eastern Region Vice President Joenelle Futrell attended the retreat at Camp Bob Marshall. SD FFA has 3,962 members in 77 school districts in South Dakota, and 557,318 FFA members in all 50 states, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. FFA develops premier leadership, personal growth and career success through high school agriculture education curriculum. The retreats were directed by the 2013-2014 State FFA Officers: President, Makayla Heisler, Newell; Vice President, Breanna Bullington, Brookings; Secretary, Cheyenne Leonhardt, Groton; Treasurer, David Strain, Sturgis; Reporter, Carrietta Schalesky, Faith; and Sentinel, Shala Larson, Webster. Retreat staff also included Courtney Schaeffer, Menno; and Kyle Kramer, Flandreau; SD FFA Ambassadors. The retreat was sponsored by the SD Department of Agriculture, DuPont Pioneer, Monsanto, and Northland Ford. SD Wheat Growers and SD Stockgrowers Association provided folders for each attendee and Mitchell Technical Institute provided pens. Scholarships for individuals to attend sponsored by: East River Electric, West River Electric Association, the Walt Johnson Memorial, and the SD FFA Foundation.

The quarter of an inch of rain we received on Wednesday didn’t slow the haying down much. Harvest has started, nights are getting cooler, and summer will soon give way to fall. Every year Basin Electric sponsors a legislative tour for several South Dakota legislators and this year I got to take their very interesting tour. The tour started Monday afternoon with a background presentation followed by a roast beef supper at Rushmore Electric Coop in Rapid City. There were six west river legislators there, besides me the other legislators from this area were Rep. Liz May, Rep. Gary Cammack, and Rep. Dean Schrempp. After supper we drove to the airport for our flight on Basin Electric’s jet to Bismarck, accompanied by Basin Electric CEO Andrew Serri. Steve Tomac, the lobbyist for Basin, met us at the airport and hauled us to the motel. Six SD east river legislators flew up and joined us for the evening social gathering. Early Tuesday morning all twelve South Dakota legislators boarded a bus for an information session and continental breakfast at Basin Electric headquarters. After breakfast we got back on the bus to tour Basin Electric’s Antelope Valley Station northwest of Beulah. Antelope Valley is a lignite-based electric generating station with a capacity of 900,000 kilowatts that cost $1.9 billion to build. The power plant is part of a $4 billion energy complex that includes the Coteau Freedom Mine, the nation’s largest lignite coal mine, and the Great Plains Synfuels Plant, the nation’s only commercial size coal gasification plant. The Great Plains Synfuels Plant is located adjacent to Antelope Valley and is owned by a subsidiary of Basin Electric. Following a tour of the model room and a video about the gasification process, we had lunch at the plant before getting back on the bus to tour the nearby Freedom Mine. Antelope Valley annually consumes around 5.2 million tons of lignite supplied from the Freedom Mine. The Freedom Mine produces approximately 15 million tons of lignite coal annually. The mine supplies lignite to two power plants, Antelope Valley and Leland Olds Station, and also provides lignite to the Great Plains Synfuels gasification plant. At the Freedom Mine, lignite is found about 100 feet below the surface and the overburden is removed by walking draglines

Grand River Roundup ............................................................... By Betty Olson
weighing 13 million pounds that run on electricity. We were allowed in the dragline to watch the operation. The booms reach 215 feet tall (17 stories!) and 340 feet long (a football field!) It has 12,000 horsepower and each bucket on the dragline holds 123 cubic yards, equal to 2,700 bushels of wheat! Local farmers and ranchers utilize over 10,000 acres of land reclaimed from the mine by grazing cattle on grasslands and raising cash crops on cropland. The mine’s reclamation efforts are amazing, the Antelope power station has invested $322 million in environmental equipment and controls for protecting land, air and water, and the gasification plant has invested $130 million for environmental systems and facilities. I’d like to say that my house is as clean and pristine as these facilities are, but I’d be lying! The United States has onefourth of the world’s supply of coal. We have four times more energy in our coal reserves than all the oil in Saudi Arabia. Unfortunately, Pres. Obama’s war on coal has caused about 50 coal powered electric plants to close and he has the rest of the coal industry in his gun sights. Electric companies and coal mines across the country are very worried about the havoc he’s causing, using agencies like the EPA to close down the industry. Pierre journalist Bob Mercer recently wrote an article about Obama’s war on coal entitled “A lump of coal from President Obama”. From Mercer’s article: “South Dakota Rural Electric Association executive director Ed Anderson says every coal-fired electricity plant will be taxed out of business under the Clean Air regulations declared today by President Barack Obama. Specifically the president wants to apply regulations to carbon dioxide emissions. Sen. John Thune was first of South Dakota’s congressional delegation to declare his opposition, calling it “a national energy tax on Americans who are already struggling in the sluggish economy.” Thune estimated the average household will pay $1,400 more annually and 500,000 jobs will be lost as energy prices climb 20 percent.” ObamaCare isn’t the only program from this administration that will inflict financial pain and suffering on the American people! The temperature was 43 degrees when we got up Friday morning and only 39 degrees at daybreak on Saturday. We took Bob Hanson with us to Ranchers Camp southeast of Meadow Satur-

day evening and even though we wore jackets, we about froze! Lester Longwood said it was only 35 degrees at his house that morning! We enjoyed listening to Pastor Michael Brandt speak after Tracy Buer entertained us with several wonderful songs and gave his testimony. Thank you both so much! Reub got a treatment from Mary Eggebo on Thursday and then took me out for dinner to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Sunday afternoon we drove to Spearfish to help Pastor Brad and Linda Abelseth celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary at the Pavilion in Spearfish Park. The big crowd gathered to help the couple celebrate 50 years of wedded bliss included two of Brad’s Eggebo relatives from Norway. It was a wonderful evening – congratulations to a delightful couple! These wedding anniversaries reminded me of this old story: A nearsighted minister glanced at the note that Mrs. Jones had sent to him by an usher. The note read: "Bill Jones having gone to sea, his wife desires the prayers of the congregation for his safety." Failing to observe the punctuation, he startled his audience by announcing: "Bill Jones, having gone to see his wife, desires the prayers of the congregation for his safety."
