Memorial services for Ronald
Elwood Emly, age 55, of Bison,
SD and Mott, ND, will be held at
1:00 p.m. on Saturday, August 10,
2013 at the American Lutheran
Church in Bison, SD.  Pastor
Dana Lockhart will officiate. Fol-
lowing the service, Ron’s wishes
were to have his ashes scattered
on the land he worked and loved,
near Prairie City, SD.
Ronald Elwood Emly was born
December 2, 1957, in Fairview,
MT to Moses Peter and Gladys
(Engen).  He grew up and at-
tended school in the Fairview
area on the North Dakota and
Montana border. Following his
schooling he began working as a
hired hand for an area farmer.  In
his spare time, Ron would rodeo
with his relatives and was an ex-
cellent bull rider.
Throughout his adult life, Ron
worked on the oil rigs in Alaska
and even went overseas as a rig
hand. He worked as a hired hand
in Pennsylvania, Oklahoma, Vir-
ginia and Wyoming, following the
seasonal harvest times as a cus-
tom combiner. He even spent
some time in Washington run-
ning a crane on the ship
docks.  Every fall though, Ron
would return to Montana and
work the sugar beet harvest as a
truck driver. 
In the fall of 2006, while driv-
ing sugar beet trucks, he met
Rosanne Wright.  They were mar-
ried in Bison, SD on February 5,
2007. Ron finished his work as a
custom harvester and moved to
Prairie City, SD, to work along-
side his wife on the Parker
Ron and Rosanne began work-
ing as hay brokers in the spring of
2010.  They would locate hay for
ranchers from South Dakota to
Texas and arrange transporta-
tion.  They also began doing cus-
tom haying for area ranchers. 
In the spring of 2013 they
moved to the Ray Kilzer farm
near Mott, ND, and spent their
time haying and working between
Mott and Bison, SD. 
Ron was proud to have com-
pleted his GED and was a mem-
ber of the NRA.  He was an
excellent shot as a young man
and you never wanted to try to
outshoot him.  Ron and Rosanne
were awarded the first Certified
Weed Free Alfalfa Crop in
Perkins County.  They worked
long and hard to attain that cer-

Enoch J. Leroy-Bouhoulle, age
66, of Faith, passed away on
Tuesday, July 30, 2013 at the
Rapid City Regional Hospital.
The Graveside Service was
held at 11:00 am Saturday, Au-
gust 3, 2013 at St. Joseph's
Catholic Cemetery west of Faith
with Fr. Jim Hoerter officiating.
Enoch J. Leroy-Bouhoulle was
born in Brussels, Belgium to
Francois and Jeanne (Bouhoulle)
Leroy. He spent his former school
years in Belgium and worked for
the Belgian Government in the
Banking Industry as an account-
ant before moving to the United
States. Enoch was married to
Martine Kesstemen and a daugh-
ter, Laura was born from this
As a young boy growing up in
Brussels, Enoch was very inter-
ested in the cowboy and Native
American way of life. He loved
watching the old western movies
and had many favorites. It was al-
ways his dream to travel to the
United States and experience this
lifestyle for himself. Finally, in
1980 he moved to the United
States, settling in Faith SD, ful-
filling his personal dreams to ex-
plore his interests. As a S.D.
resident he was able to fulfill an-
other dream, which was to work
as a police officer. He would often
reflect and fondly remember his
time as a police officer.
In 1988, he met and later mar-
ried Mary Thin Elk. They contin-
ued to live in Faith.
Enoch enjoyed life and lived
his dreams as he conceived them
to be. He often would say that he
had no regrets in life; he was a
lucky man for realizing his
dreams of experiencing both the
cowboy and Native American cul-
ture, becoming a police officer, a
United States citizen, and having
a large Native American family.
As an only child, Enoch wanted a
large extended family with many
in-laws, children and grandchil-
dren and he was able to enjoy his
many years as a devoted hus-
band, father and grandfather.
Surviving family members in-
clude his wife, Mary Bouhoulle,
Faith, SD; daughter, Laura
Leroy, in Florida; son, Raymond
Thin Elk, Bridger, SD; stepchil-
dren, Florentine (Carlos) Picotte,
Selfridge, ND; Theodora (Ben-
nett) Belt, Bridger, SD; Jesse
Janis, Dupree, SD; April Janis,
Bridger, SD; Vanessa Janis,
Bridger, SD; 19 grandchildren, 3
great grandchildren.
Enoch had a host of friends
and will be greatly missed by
many. Enoch's' special friends,
Gordie and Kathy Collins, Micki
Haines, Gary Fisher, Dorothy
Fisher, and Cheeto Mestes. He
had numerous friends, too many
to list and we apologize if we
weren't able to list them.
Dwayne Hobbs and wife Marilyn,
Dorrence Hobbs and wife Bar-
bara, and Bob Hobbs and wife

After 37 years behind the win-
dow at Faith Livestock Commis-
sion Company, Faith, S.D., JoAnn
Brown looks forward to time with
Owner Scott Vance noted that
when his granddad, Lawrence H.,
and his dad, Gary W., initially
hired Brown in 1977 there was a
discussion if she would quit
within a few years to raise a fam-
ily. Turns out they were some-
what right, but it was a lot more
than a few years.
JoAnn now has a grandson,
Everett Vernon Brown, and she
wants to be able to help her son
and daughter-in-law, Jeff and
Mandi, like her mother-in-law
helped her. “It’s gift I can give to
the kids,” she said. JoAnn and her
husband, Jody, also have another
son, Luke, who is a seminary stu-
dent, and daughter, Hanna, a
nurse who commutes to Eagle
JoAnn noted that she will miss
the people, not only co-workers
but all the buyers and sellers that
come to the sale barn. She feels
that they all have become like
family to her. There have been
many good laughs held at both
buyer and seller windows, said
JoAnn. She added that she is anx-
ious to bring Everett up to visit
everyone on sale day.
Scott stated the sale barn is
seeing fourth generation family
members at their sales. JoAnn
said her former teachers, now re-
tired from teaching, are cus-
tomers of Faith Livestock – as
well as their families. Small
towns are close-knit units, where
many businesses go out of their
way to help someone who is not
just a customer, but a friend, a
teacher, or even a relative.
The use of computers has been
the biggest change that JoAnn
and the Faith Livestock staff
have seen in the offices. She said
she remembers handwriting out
checks as well as using a couple
different check writing machines.
JoAnn said she remembers all
the handwriting that used to take
place for everything before 2006,
when the office computers were
installed. In 2008, the ring scale
computers were installed which
made the office work run even
more smoothly.
The computer has also changed
the way information is passed
from the sale ring to the book-
keepers. Where slips of paper
once were walked from the ring to
the front desk, it now is all done
through the computers.
JoAnn recalled how hard it was
to handwrite some of the bigger
check amounts, dealing with
thousands of dollars. Now they
are printed from the computer.
JoAnn admitted that while the
computers have made things
more professional and faster,
there are times when she misses
the days of writing the checks out.
It was more personal back then,
she said.
JoAnn stated that one of the
more difficult changes of her job
was when it became mandatory
for Faith Livestock to put liens on
seller’s checks. She felt that it was
an invasion of privacy to have this
duty; this was something be-
tween the lien holder and the
rancher themselves. But, she
noted, this aspect of her position
has become more user friendly
over the years.
Some of the changes have cre-
ated more paperwork for JoAnn.
State and federal regulations that
have been added over the years,
and the additional paperwork
that comes from selling expenses,
such as brand inspection, beef
checkoff and vet inspection.
JoAnn plans to work Fridays, to
give some assistance with that pa-
perwork. It’s all those little things
that JoAnn does as a matter of
routine that create more stress for
someone new in the position and
she wants to ease the way.
Scott stated that JoAnn was
recognized in 1997 as the office
manager of the year by the Live-
stock Marketing Association dur-
ing their annual convention and
championship auctioneer contest.
JoAnn still is very humble about
the award. She did admit that it
was a lot of fun the next year as
she, as one of the regional winners
was able to travel to Missouri to
help select the 1998 award win-
JoAnn ’s last sale day was Mon-
day, August 5. The Vances want
to invite everyone to the 53rd An-
niversary Sale and barbecue on
Monday, August 19, to visit with
JoAnn and your neighbors as well
as watch the sale and enjoy a free
JoAnn’s bubbly personality has
always brightened up the sale
barn, and will surely be missed,
but those grandchildren are
pretty hard to beat. Although, she
is ready for life’s next adventure.

Quite a few neighbors from
this area attended the funeral
service for Dan Wicks that was
held at the Union Center Com-
munity Center on Monday, 29th.
Our condolences surely go out to
Amy and her daughters and
Dan's brothers Andy and Zane.
Dan suffered through several
hard years with that dreaded dis-
ease and his faithful family were
heroes for being able to take care
of him. 
Marlin and Ethel Ingalls went
down to Paul and Debbie Del-
bridge's on Monday to help great
granddaughter Sabrina celebrate
her very first birthday party.
Dwayne and Zona Vig stopped
by the Stoneville place on their
way home from the funeral to
work on a water tank. Tuesday,
Dwayne worked on a different
water system near Big Draw and
saw the smoke resulting from
Rick Lemmel's baler being on
fire. Several fire departments and
neighbors showed up to help keep
it from spreading very far. Zona
took some lunch down to those
who stayed to keep watch on it.
Howard and I took Tracy along
on Tuesday and went to Sturgis
where we dropped her off to pick
up their car that was getting
some body work done and was
completed. We went on to Rapid
City for a morning appointment
and some shopping. Lots of rally
junk in Sturgis already.
Rod and Justin Ingalls went
into Faith on Tuesday to get some
tire work and other repair work
done. Was a good day for that as
the cook was gone.
Marlin and Ethel Ingalls kept
a medical appointment in Sturgis
on Tuesday.
Wednesday, Aurora and Au-
tumn Keffeler came from Gillette
to Dwayne and Zona Vig's in time
for noon dinner.  They brought
their pets out to stay a week on
the ranch while the Keffelers
spent this week at the Yellow-
stone Bible Camp at Pray, Mon-
tana. Kelsey and Brixie stopped
to visit in the afternoon. The Kef-
felers stayed a few hours after
Dwayne, Zona and Hope left for
Bible study as they wanted to
take pictures of animals. Earlier,
they had flown with Dwayne in
the Cessna to take pictures of the
ranch.  Friday was chokecherry
picking day for Zona and Hope.
Nice wild fruit this year. Wonder-
ing if that along with a good hay
crop means we will have a harder
winter this year.
Logan and Brynn Lemmel
have been spending some time
with grandparents Spud and Ber-
nice while the rally is in Sturgis.
Friday evening, Lemmel's daugh-
ter Roxie Tetrault and family
from St. Onge hosted a family
barbeque gathering to celebrate
Spud and Bernice Lemmel's 60th
wedding anniversay.  Congratula-
tions Spud and Bernice!
Saturday, the Vig crew all
helped with preg checking of the
heifers. Kelsey and Brixie came
later in the afternoon to visit and
have dessert.  It was also cattle
working day for the Delbridge
family at the Ingalls place.
I know Carmen Heidler had
news but guess she is so enjoying
having grandkids visiting that
she didn't get me a note sent.  The
whole Heidler family had spent a
couple days in the Hills at the
first of the week having some fun
time together and then Corky's
kids stayed at the ranch for a
Barry and Cheryl Vig, Glenn
and Margaret Fogelman, Lisle
and Mike Reeve, Richard and
Barb Isaacs and Wanda Ruth,
Marlin and Ethel Ingalls,
Howard, Kay, Rod, Tracy and
Justin Ingalls all went into Belle
Fourche on Sunday afternoon to
attend the 60th wedding anniver-
sary gathering for Allen and
Ellen Talley.  A good turnout of
friends and relatives gathered
and had a great visit. Congratu-
lations to Allen and Ellen!!!
Hope many gather in Faith
this week and enjoy the Faith
Stock Show. 
Faith received a little moisture
last week. Temperatures were
mostly in the 70s and some 80s
last week, but Friday we only
reached 67º. A thunderstorm hit
here just before 3:00 Friday
morning with plenty of thunder
and lightning and dropped about
a 1/2” of rain. We had another
small storm Saturday night but it
didn’t leave much moisture. Tem-
peratures are supposed to be in
the 70s mostly this week, making
for nice Stock Show weather, al-
though it may be a little cool at
night. WE received another .30”
this past Monday night, with
plenty of thunder and lightning!
Condolences to the family of
Enoch Bouhoulle. Enoch was a
member of our community for
about 20 years and always en-
joyed visiting with you.
Keith and Roxi Gaaskjolen
stopped by Monday for a short
visit with his mother, Garnet.
They were on their way home
from the Rapid City airport
where they had taken Roxi’s
brother Tyler to fly back to Korea.
He spent a week visiting them.
Zachary Gaaskjolen from Stan-
ley, ND was in Faith all day last
Wednesday. He was attending
meetings for the company he
works for. After the meetings
were over he visited Grandma
Garnet. They went out for supper
and had a real nice visit. He left
about 7 p.m. and was driving
clear back to Stanley which is a 5
1/2 hour drive and had a meeting
there the next morning at 8:00.
Keith and Roxi Gaaskjolen at-
tended a potluck dinner in Union
Center on Sunday. Roxi had
taken a cake and had a few pieces
left so on their way home Roxi
suggested they stop and have
cake and coffee with Garnet. They
enjoyed a good visit over their
cake and coffee.
Motorcycles, along with trail-
ers and motor homes of all sizes,
were certainly on the move over
the weekend, and this week, both
going to and coming from the
Sturgis Rally. Unfortunately,
with all that traffic there have
been several deaths. If you’re
traveling around the area, please
be on the watch for these bikes.
Sometimes they can be hard to
This is the week! Stock Show is
underway in our little town. The
Faith Stock Show Assn. has been
busy planning this event for sev-
eral months. There are the usual
rodeos, parade, bronc match, ex-
hibits, livestock judging, dancing,
a free barbecue, pie social, and
much more. We lost our carnival
this year, but the Faith Volunteer
Fire Dept. is sponsoring games
for the kids on Friday and Satur-
day, along with their Pancake
Breakfast on Sunday. Hope
everyone enjoys the festivities.
The Stock Show Assn. is hon-
oring veterans at the Sunday
rodeo and invite all veterans to
join them.
The Fun Walk/Run/Stroll is
this Saturday morning at Durkee
Lake. Registration begins at 7:15
at the boat dock. This is a
fundraiser for Spinal Muscular
Central Meade County has
been very blessed to have re-
ceived almost 2 inches of rain in
the past week or so. It has been a
shot in the arm to our pastures
and certainly hasn't hurt the
dams any. Word has it that four
inches of rain fell near the Plain-
view area on Saturday night.
Teen Camp at Cedar Canyon
Bible Camp was a great time for
many. They enjoyed some extra
fun activities that included a blow
up slide and more. They had one
exciting night when some type of
unidentified flying or 'hovering'
object was above the camp. It had
suspicious lights and suddenly
Sturgis was slow moving on
Sunday morning and afternoon,
but it wasn't at a standstill. Bik-
ers from all over the country can
be seen on many different types of
bikes. Sandy and Larry Rhoden
gave a couple from Florida a ride
from the airport to Buffalo Chip
on Saturday. They enjoyed get-
ting to know the couple who had
fabulous bikes delivered to Stur-
gis by truck. Needless to say, the
couple made an open ended invi-
tation to come and visit them in
Florida or Denver any time.
Becky and Sandy Hale were at
the Rapid City Airport on Thurs-
day to meet their daughter, Rae
Hale. They had plans to attend a
family reunion that weekend with
Becky's family.
There was potluck at the Com-
munity Baptist Church on Sun-
day after services. Tristen and
Reggie Rhoden spent the after-
noon at Caden Smiley's after din-
Larry Rhoden and Gary Cam-
mack attended the annual picnic
hosted by the law officers of South
Dakota in Sturgis.
Pastor Harold Delbridge offici-
ated the funeral service for
Daniel Dean Wicks last week at
the Central Meade County Com-
munity Center in Union Center.
Pallbearers were Dick Aldren,
James Inghram, Lyle Long, Glen
Long, Rich Johnston, Kevin
Smith, Larry Jensen, Cliff Matt,
Randy Keffeler and Cody Weyer.
For those who knew Danny, the
words they used to describe him
were loyal, didicated, loving, will-
ing, faithful, fun loving, quick wit-
ted, fiery, caring, hard working
and a friend who could be counted
on no matter what. Danny was 51
years old and leaves behind his
wife, Amy and daughters Emily
and Abigail, son, Chris Herman
and two grandchildren. He also
leaves behind two brothers, Andy
and Zane. He fought a brave fight
before losing his three year battle
to Lou Gehrig’s. He was a
rancher, dedicated volunteer fire-
fighter and served as a director
for the Marcus Fire Department.
Danny was the son of Ray and
Florence Wicks who both have
passed. Danny will forever re-
main in the hearts of many from
his community in Central Meade
County. Our deepest sympathy
goes out to Amy and family, as
well as very close friends.

Week of July 31st
Oh, South Dakota weather,
what will you do? One day this
past week folks reported temper-
atures of 48 in the morning. I had
the heat on as I’m sure more peo-
ple did! The days often heat up to
the high 80’s so we resort to the
air conditioners! Chokecherries
are ripe and ready to pick, custom
combine crews are showing up
and hay trucks are already mov-
ing hay here and there.
Our community was saddened
to hear of the passing of Dan
Wicks from Red Owl. Dan has
had ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease
for several years. He was an ac-
tive member of the community
who cared about his fellow man.
Dan was ill himself but made an
effort to visit my brother Earl as
Earl dealt with liver cancer. We
so appreciated the special effort
he made. That’s the kind of guy
he was. Condolences go out to the
Monday, Mary Deichert came
to visit her grandparents, Jim
and Vonnie O'Dea. Mary, Amy,
and Vonnie went to Philip and,
with the help of Karyl Sandal,
made a flannel quilt for Amy.
That makes quilts for all the De-
ichert girls. Grandma furnishes
the material and the girls help.
Mary went back to Spearfish
Wednesday so she could go to
work and Amy went to Deadwood
to watch the rodeo slack.

Kroetch, hosted a birthday sup-
per Wednesday evening for Von-
nie's sister Betty Smith so O'Deas
went there. It was a good time
visiting with relatives.
Corinna Thompson stopped
briefly at Lacey and Robert Won-
dercheck's Monday to pick up sal-
ads  Lacey and I sent to the Wicks
family dinner in Union Center.
Thank you Corinna!
Friday, O'Deas and Amy were
in Sturgis for appointments.
Deadwood was the next stop to
watch the parade and later to the
rodeo. All stayed at Susan O'Deas
for the night. Saturday, they
watched the parade again and
then they went to Piedmont to
Doug, Holly, and Paige Phillips.
Phillips had just gotten new liv-
ing room carpet so they got to see
that. Paige also showed everyone
her new horse Haines. Twenty
years young and just right for a 4
year old.
Tucker, Bev and Tina Hudson
went camping up at Hanna Creek
over the weekend and attended
the Days of ‘76 and the Merle
Haggard Show Saturday night in
Deadwood. Congratulations to
Winston Brown, grandson of
Larry and Val Brown and Tucker
and Bev Hudson, on winning 9
buckles at the National Little
Britches rodeo finals in Pueblo,
Colorado. Winston went into the
short go in 3 events. In the world
standings he was 5th in Goat
Yying and 5th in Ribbon Roping.
This is a week long rodeo with 2
go arounds and a short go. The
participants go into the rodeo
with points like the South Dakota
High School Rodeos do. Wacey
and Wregan were also contest-
ants in the finals rodeo.
Brian Olson hosted a barbecue
Sunday night to honor his son,
Sloan who is here spending a few
days with Brian and Brian’s
mother. Sloan is 3 years old and
quite a tall, handsome young
man. Quirt Wondercheck visited
at Brian’s Friday so he could play
with Sloan. Lacey, Robert, Quirt
and Rio Wondercheck attended
the party.
Harold and I drove to Timber
Lake Thursday afternoon to visit
Adele and Denver Enright. While
we were there Adele and I
checked out the exhibits for the
Days of 1910 Fair. We also visited
the library and the museum.
Bub and Troy Thompson were
in Timber Lake Saturday for the
rodeo and celebration. The Days
of 1910 honored Lee Robley, an
area rancher and rodeo contractor
before John Holloway was born.
Lee and Elsie were neighbors of
ours at Timber Lake and at White
Quirt Wondercheck and Raney
Jones took swimming lessons at
the Faith pool this week. I rode
along with Lacey every day but
Wednesday and was very im-
pressed with the girls who taught
the lessons. Tori Afdahl had a
class of little kids with 4 special
needs students. I’m not sure how
she did it but she did a tremen-
dous job getting the kids to float,
blow bubbles and swim. One day
she had two little ones hanging on
her all the time and she still man-
aged to do her job. If you’ve never
been a teacher or in charge of a
group like that you might not ap-
preciate what she did as much as
I do. Some kids cried and didn’t
want in, Quirt and Raney clung to
the edge of the pool one day, other
kids just were uncooperative and
would not get in due to cold
water, taking off to the kiddie
pool or Lord knows what. I think
there were 11 or 12 of them and
they scatter just like little chick-
ens! Good job girls and thanks for
sharing your skills with our little
ones while you still kept them
safe in spite of themselves.
Troy Thompson visited a doc-
tor in Rapid City Tuesday where
he got a cast on his riding arm.
He will be sporting the cast for at
least 5 weeks. Quirt was stumped
and had to ask, “Why you ride a
bull, Troy?” Troy’s grandpa Irvin
always said with bull riding “Its
not if you get hurt but when.” Get
better Troy and get a bronc sad-
This week’s news
This week we have my dad’s
two sisters here from Reno and
Bakersfield. They are 90 and 93
years old. Oh my, I call them the
“Golden Girls or GG’s.” Two sis-
ters, no matter what age, will still
fight but the elder one gives in to
prevent more trouble. Often the
squabbles are caused by one or
the other not hearing what was
said.  It is still nice to have them
here and reconnect with family.
D’Anne and Amanda Thompson
flew to Bakersfield to drive the
girls out here for Faith Stock
Show. After Stock Show they will
drive them back and then fly
home again. We have been doing
a lot of walking down memory
lane and visiting the old place. As
Harold says, “It is hard for people
who left here in the thirties to
fathom the changes that have
come to the area and to agricul-
ture.” This morning Aunt Ruth
was telling Harold stories of
things his mother, Phyllis Kilness
Waterland and Hattie Burditt
Conway did to them at Barada
School. Phyllis and Hattie were
older so they would get the little
kids to come to the woodshed so
they could pull tricks on them.
One trick was to have them lay
down and open their mouth. Next
they would cough like they were
hacking up a luggie and drop a
peeled grape into the child’s
mouth. Yuck! As straight laced as
Phyllis was that’s hard to imagine
her doing, isn’t it? Hattie being
her accomplice is a shock too!
Ruth also told some more tricks
but I don’t dare write them in
here for fear some kid would copy
it and get in real trouble. I guess
it’s not just today’s kids who
pulled things they shouldn’t have.
We’ve visited the White Owl
Cemetery and they are at the old
Edwin Thompson place with Bub.
I will have a whole new set of old
time information before the girls
go south again.
Grant Simons, Harold tells me
you have stories about school
shenanigans too, but, there again
I can’t share, can I? I am writing
down the ones I can’t print here
so they won’t be lost! How about
it people? What kind of shenani-
gan stories do you have from
school days? Are your kids old
enough to hear them or do you
need to keep your mouth shut
awhile longer?
Thursday, Lacey, Quirt, and
Rio Wondercheck and I were in
Eagle Butte, Timber Lake, Isabel,
and Dupree. I picked up a tele-
scope I got the bid on in the
Dewey County Library fundraiser
at Timber Lake. We stopped at
Adele’s and then ate at the Co-op
restaurant before heading for Is-
abel. In Isabel I had an interview
with Northwest Area Schools,
then went on to Dupree. In
Dupree I went to the Ziebach
County Courthouse where I left
some of my mom’s old “Purple
and Gold” school papers from the
1940’s with Cindy Longbrake. I
still have some 1940’s En La
Pampas and am not sure where
they should go. Anyone know??
Tuesday, Jim and Vonnie
O'Dea and Amy Deichert were in
Philip for appointments. Vonnie
and Amy had quick visits with
Norma Oldenberg and Karyl San-
dal. They were caught in the hail
storm in Philip and damage to the
pickup wasn't good.
Sunday, Jim and Vonnie O'Dea
were in Rapid City at the Old
Story Book Island for a family pic-
nic. Vonnie's sisters and their
families and many cousins gath-
ered for a a day of making memo-
ries and eating good food.

Howdy folks and welcome to
the 2013 Faith Stock Show cele-
bration. I am Taylor Fisher, the
2012 Faith Stock Show Junior
Miss. My parents are Trevor
Fisher and Laura Fisher. I live on
a cattle and horse ranch forty-five
miles northwest of Faith. I have
two brothers, Chris and Caden.
Throughout the year I had the
opportunity to represent Faith
Stock Show at several events. I
started out my reign by carrying
flags and cleaning the arena at
the Faith Shck Show rodeo.
The following weekend I went
to the Perkins County Fair in
Bison where I handed out ribbons
during the “play day” event. I
helped serve the queen contest-
ants their lunch and showed the
princess contestants how to
model. I rode in the Grand Entry
and helped clean the arena; what
fun I had riding my two year old
colt, Snicker.
Another highlight of my year
was going to Newell’s Labor Day,
riding in the parade and helping
crown the 2012 Labor Day
Queens. While there, I got to meet
Miss Rodeo USA, Trisha Smeenk.
What an honor it was to get my
picture taken with her.
In January, I set out to Rapid
City to the World’s Smallest
Rodeo, held at the Rapid City
Stock Show. While there, I signed
autographs, met many of the
other queens and helped the
young contestants with their pat-
An exciting day for me was last
week, heading back to Faith with
my Grandma Linda. We made
cookies and went to many of the
businesses; I told everyone to
have a great week at the Stock
Show. We also greeted and gave
cookies to the residents at Coun-
tryside Estates.
With my reign coming to an
end, I would like to say “Thank
You” to everyone who made this
experience possible. Thank you to
all the sponsors and volunteers
who helped make our queen con-
test a success. A special Thank
You to Ida Hibner, for all her
hard work over the years!
I want to wish all the cowboys
and cowgirls the best and hope to
see you all at the rodeo!
In closing, it has been an in-
credible ride!
Thanks and God Bless!

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 designat-
ing 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 Pur-
ple Heart Medal for wounds re-
ceived in combat. So as August 7
approaches, let us not forget the
men and women of our armed
forces who have received the Pur-
ple 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). Rep-
resentatives from the South
Dakota Department of Veterans
Affairs, the veteran’s service or-
ganizations 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 oppor-
tunity to talk to experts about
benefits and programs available
to them.
Veterans attending school this
fall at one of South Dakota’s uni-
versities or technical schools,
please remember to make contact
with the school’s certifying offi-
cials. 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 vet-
eran’s service officer to see if you
qualify for any benefits?” Encour-
age them to make that contact.
Again, a listing of the veterans
service officers can be found at:
It is important that we honor
the men and women in uniform
who have made tremendous sac-
rifices in the defense of our nation
and who remind us of their valor
and service.

What is Wrong?
My cucumbers and zucchini
look weird, sort of big at one end
and peaked on the other end,
what’s up?  Answer:  For the most
part this is due to poor/incomplete
pollination. Check your garden
for bees and other pollinating in-
sects. Often in urban communi-
ties if the city has been spraying
for mosquitoes during the pollina-
tion period for plants, the pollina-
tion may be compromised as bees
avoid the area or are killed/sick-
ened by the chemicals used to
kills the mosquitoes, depending
on the chemicals. The poor polli-
nation problem this year is wide
spread, not just in cities where
mosquito controls are in use.
Using insecticides in or near the
garden affects pollination. 
The bad news - there isn’t a so-
lution unless you are willing to
become a pollinator yourself. Cu-
cumbers and squash have male
and female blossoms, the female
blossoms have a tiny fruit (infe-
rior ovaries) at the base of the
blossom, the male blossom is on a
slender stem.  Female blossoms
are only open for pollination four
hours, then the blossom closes, if
pollination has not occurred, the
blossom/tiny fruit drops off the
vine. Pollen from the male blos-
som must be transferred to the fe-
male blossom and that is your
task should you decide to be the
The leaves of some of my cu-
curbit crops look spotted and yel-
lowing, what’s happening?
Cucurbitaceae is a plant family
that includes melons, squash,
gourds, cucumbers, luffas and wa-
termelons. These plants have
similar problems, poor pollina-
tion, pests and diseases. The yel-
lowing of leaves can be due to
poor soil nutrition, yellow dots
may mean lack of nitrogen. Pests
such as spider mites or disease
such as powdery mildew (fungi)
which thrives in warm dry
weather of mid to late summer
cause yellowing. Check the leaves
for the spider mites, you may
want to use a magnifying glass or
place a white piece of paper under
the plant and shake it, if you see
small objects moving around the
paper, you have mites.
So your options are: 1. Do a soil
sample to check soil nutrients
and supplement the soil accord-
ingly if that is the problem. 2. If it
is spider mites you can make your
own homemade insecticide--here
are some to choose from:  a) mix
one part alcohol to one part water
and pour into a squirt bottle; b)
add 5 tbsp. of liquid dish deter-
gent to 1 gallon of water; c) add 1
tbsp. each of ground cinnamon
and clove to a quart of water,
along with 2 tbsp. of Italian sea-
soning. Heat the mixture until it
starts to simmer, then take it off
the heat. Add 2 tbsp. of fresh gar-
lic when the water cools to a
warm temperature, then let it
cool completely. Pour the mixture
through a strainer and add a few
drops of liquid soap. Place in a
spray bottle. Whichever mixture
you choose, be sure to spray both
sides of the leaves thoroughly.
The alcohol mixture should kill
the mites on contact; however, the
dish detergent solution will need
to be applied several times until
it kills the entire mite population
and the herbal mixture once
every three days for about two

On Monday, Aug. 12, the final
phase of a nine-mile reconstruc-
tion project will begin in the east-
bound lanes of Interstate 90 near
Spearfish, according to the South
Dakota Department of Trans-
Traffic will be reduced to one
lane in each direction and two-
way traffic maintained in the
westbound lanes between Exits
14 and 17, with a 14-foot width
Motorists are asked to watch
for slowing traffic, merging lanes,
modified traffic patterns for exit
on/off ramps, construction equip-
ment and workers. 
The speed limit on that section
of I-90 near Spearfish will be re-
duced to 55 mph, and motorists
are reminded that fines are dou-
bled in work zones.
The interim completion date
for this phase is Nov. 1, with an
overall completion date of Dec.
The prime contractor on the
$12.4 million project is Heavy
Constructors Inc. of Rapid City.

Grand River Roundup
By Betty Olson
We had a couple nice rains this
week, just short of an inch on Fri-
day and 33 hundredths Sunday
morning. Most of the haying is
finished, the guys are busy haul-
ing hay, and harvest has started.
It’s unusual to see green out on
the prairie this time of year, but
we’ve very thankful for all the
beautiful grass in the pastures.
Sen. Maher and I attended a
meeting between the Grand River
Grazing District and the Dakota
Prairie Grasslands Forest Service
officials at the Dakota Lodge in
Lemmon Tuesday. This was a re-
view of the Forest Service’s pre-
scribed burn of Pasture 3B that
got out of control and destroyed
almost 14,000 acres of govern-
ment pasture and privately
owned grassland. South Dakota
Secretary of Agriculture Lucas
Lentsch and Courtney De La
Rosa came from Pierre for the
meeting and North Dakota was
represented by Shirley Meyer
from Sen. Heitkamp’s office and
by Jon Cameron from Sen. Ho-
even’s office. Most of the local fire
departments attended and re-
ported that they have been reim-
bursed for the expenses incurred
in fighting the fire. The firemen
stressed the critical need for bet-
ter radio communication between
the Forest Service and the fire de-
Members of Grand River Graz-
ing met with Forest Service rep-
resentatives to determine what
was learned from the catastrophic
fire and what would be the best
method of handling crested wheat
grass that wouldn’t involve burn-
ing. Grand River Grazing Associ-
ation Pres. Tim Smith asked if
the Forest Service would work on
a burn plan with the association
and Grassland Supervisor Dennis
Neitzke agreed, asking that they
work together to develop a plan
for management goals.
The Buffalo Youth Rodeo finals
were in Buffalo Wednesday after-
noon. We didn’t make it in to
watch the grandkids but they did
okay without us. Trig was won-
dering what Bryce was going to
do with all the buckles she won
cuz she doesn’t have enough belts
to put them on. He thought she’d
have been better off to win some
of the cool stuff he won!
Many of the neighbors are
busy putting up garden produce
and making jam, jelly, pickles,
syrup, etc. I canned 21 quarts of
cherries this week, made a cherry
pie, two carrot cakes, two choco-
late zucchini cakes, and a couple
quarts of pickled cucumber salad.
My sister gave me three heads of
cabbage, so tomorrow I’m making
sauerkraut. Yum! Oh, if any of
you need dill for pickles, call me.
I have a whole garden full of it.
There’s a reason that stuff is
called dill weed.
Isabel’s annual celebration was
this weekend. There was an
alumni reunion Friday evening, a
parade, barbeque and ice cream
social on Saturday, and rodeos on
Saturday and Sunday. Sen.
Maher called to tell me that
George Boldt was furnishing a ve-
hicle to haul us through the pa-
George’s antique manure
spreader was perfect for hauling
around a couple politicians! Cur-
tis Witte pulled the old manure
spreader with an antique tractor,
also belonging to George Boldt,
and thankfully, he didn’t engage
the spreader after we were
aboard. Curtis said his wife
wanted to put a sign on the back
of the manure spreader that said
“Spreading ObamaCare”, but
since both of the politicians he
was hauling are adamantly op-
posed to ObamaCare, they de-
cided against it, at least while we
were aboard!  
Sunday was the first church
service held in the new Bethle-
hem Lutheran Church at Ludlow.
The building was originally the
chapel at Sky Ranch for Boys
south of Camp Crook. When Sky
Ranch closed, the church bought
the building, had it moved to Lud-
low near where the old church
once stood, and remodeled it in-
side and out. Chase Stugelmeyer
and Trevor Gress were confirmed
during the service on Sunday, the
first class to be confirmed in the
new building. Having a church in
Ludlow again is wonderful and
we congratulate not only Chase
and Trevor, but the entire Beth-
lehem Lutheran congregation!
Reub and I picked Bob Hanson
up in Bison Sunday evening and
took him with us to Bible study at
John and Corinne Erickson’s
ranch. Brad and Linda Abelseth
and Les and Sharon Longwood
joined us for a delightful evening.
When we picked Bob up, he let us
listen to a message on his answer-
ing machine from another old sol-
dier. His friend, who is 94 or 95,
always calls Bob on the anniver-
sary of the day Bob was critically
injured by the Germans in France
and taken prisoner. Bob was tick-
led that he didn’t get to the phone
in time, because now his answer-
ing machine has preserved the
message so he can listen to the
voice of his friend again and
Bob told us a story he forgot to
tell Jan Swan Wood when she in-
terviewed him a couple weeks
ago. Bob was a member of Pres.
Roosevelt’s security detail when
FDR visited his son Elliot Roo-
sevelt’s ranch in Texas. Bob was
armed with a 50 caliber machine
gun that he carried pointed into
the air. A FBI agent walked by
where Bob was standing and
asked, “Is that thing loaded?”
while the agent reached over and
touched the trigger! Thankfully
the shell went straight into the
air, but the resulting blast cer-
tainly got everyone’s attention!  
Our ride through the Isabel
cowboy community parade in the
old manure spreader made me
think of this joke Debbie Kahl
sent me years ago entitled Coun-
try Politics: 
A busload of politicians was
driving down a country road,
when suddenly the bus ran off the
road and crashed into an old
farmer's barn.
The farmer got off his tractor
and went to investigate. Soon he
dug a hole and buried the politi-
cians. A few days later, the local
sheriff came out, saw the crashed
bus and asked the old farmer
where all the politicians had
The farmer told him he had
buried them.
The sheriff asked the farmer,
"Lordy, were they ALL dead?"
The old farmer said, "Well,
some of them said they weren't,
but you know how them crooked
politicians lie."
Welcome to Faith
Hope you enjoy
the celebration!

small businesses and employees
cover the cost of health care,” said
Treasury Secretary Jacob J. Lew.
“It’s important for small busi-
ness owners to know the facts
about the Affordable Care Act
care delivers resources and need-
to-know information through one
streamlined tool,” said SBA Ad-
ministrator Karen Mills. “This
Website will prove to be an in-
valuable resource for small em-
ployers to learn how the law is
ushering in better options for
them and their employees.”
“The Affordable Care Act is
providing better care and better
choices for millions of Americans,
and this is another great tool for
employers to learn how they can
offer health coverage that makes
sense for their business and em-
ployees, and works for their bot-
tom line,” said HHS Secretary
Kathleen Sebelius.
Many parts of the Affordable
Care Act, which was signed into
law in March, 2010, are already
in effect, including new consumer
protections, and improvements to
health care coverage that ensure
consumers get more value for
their premium dollars.
Additional benefits will take
effect in late 2013 and beyond.
Starting October 1, 2013, individ-
Administration today launched, a
one-stop-shop Website which will
provide employers of all sizes ed-
ucational materials on how the
Affordable Care Act may affect
businesses and help them com-
pete. The site includes a wizard
tool that is tailored based on size
and location, so businesses can
learn how the law helps them pro-
vide affordable coverage options
to their employees while still
meeting their bottom line.  The
site will act as a user-friendly hub
that connects employers to infor-
mational content on tax credits
and other provisions of the law
from the Small Business Admin-
istration, the Department of
Health and Human Services
(HHS), and the Treasury Depart-
As part of the Administration’s
ongoing dialogue with leaders of
our nation’s top businesses, this
latest tool will help ensure that
employers of all sizes know what
the Affordable Care Act means for
them, and have the information
they need to take advantage of
the new benefits and opportuni-
ties under the law. The Adminis-
tration will work with the
employer community to ensure
the site continues to be a helpful
resource for businesses and their
employees, including updating
the site with additional, timely in-
“As the Affordable Care Act is
implemented, it is so important
for us to work with the business

be a tremendous resource for self-

Ropes and Goats finished the
sixth and final event of the sum-
mer with many happy faces.
Kaycee Groves had the biggest
smile because she was the high-
money winner of the evening and
won the T-Shirt printed with the
theme, “Give it all you got, but
give God the Glory,” sponsored in
part by Keffeler Kreations.
Cole Brewer won the $5 for
reciting the Bible verse from I
Peter 5:8 “Be alert and of sober
mind. Your enemy the devil
prowls around like a roaring lion
looking for someone to devour.”
The resolve to give the young
goat tyers and breakaway ropers
experience was accomplished for
the third year of Ropes and Goats.
Those who participated showed
significant improvement. Take a
look at the fast times in the goat
A special thanks goes to the
people who opened gates, took
ropes off, handled goats, pushed
calves, announced, timed, strung
the barrier, flagged, and all the
things that need to be done to
have Ropes and Goats. Thanks to
the Faith Community for their
support and for the privilege of
using the great facility.

The path to understanding the
We have long been on the path
to understanding the proper diet
that prevents heart attacks and
Although most believe a life
style of moderate physical activity
and avoidance of smoke is impor-
tant in preventing atherosclero-
sis, there remains no consistent
answer to which diet is most pro-
tective in preventing early aging
of blood vessels.
For years we thought it was a
no-egg, low fat, and more vegetar-
ian diet, but in recent years ex-
perts have started endorsing
more meat. It began when a fad,
low-carbohydrate, weight-loss
diet became clearly more success-
ful than the standard more vege-
tarian diet. Reported in the
medical journals, researchers
found that those eating less
bread, potatoes, and sweets lost
more weight and felt better than
those eating less meats and fats.
Alas, after a year both groups
were equally unsuccessful in
keeping the weight off, but we
learned from it.
Add to this what we’ve known
for years about the medical condi-
tions of food intolerance. There is
intolerance to lactose, which is
the natural sugar of milk, and
celiac disease, which is intoler-
ance to gluten, a protein in many
cereals especially wheat. Anthro-
pologists tell us these problems
did not occur in hunter-gather so-
cieties until about 10,000 years
ago when farming developed and
humanity became exposed to ani-
mal milk and wheat.
It is also intriguing that stud-
ies of twentieth century hunter-
gatherers, whose diets are about
65% wild game meat and 35%
gathered plant food, show them to
be generally free of the signs and
symptoms of cardiovascular dis-
ease. Could it be then that the
eating habits of our ancestral pre-
farming Paleolithic people living
2.5 million years ago until 10,000
years ago are guiding us along a
path to prevent heart attacks and
stroke in modern humans?
Those who don’t swallow this
theory advise us that back then,
most people had to walk about an
hour a day to survive, had smaller
portions of food when they had
food at all, and that most didn’t
live past 30 years of age anyway.
These contrarians state that 500
generations of living with an
agrarian diet has been enough to
evolve tolerance to lactose and
gluten with only an occasional
throwback who doesn’t tolerate
our modern diet of milk and
I think the path to preventing
a heart attack is not by avoiding
meat and fat, or even milk and
bread, but rather by simply eat-
ing smaller portions and daily
walking along any path.

The South Dakota Game, Fish
and Parks Department is honor-
ing four individuals who have
taken part in the agency’s Walk-
In Area program since its incep-
tion 25 years ago.
Access to land is an important
part of hunting and the Walk-In
Area program has played a major
role in placing South Dakota
among the nation’s best hunting
locations. Under the program,
private land is leased for public
access and there are currently
over one million acres of private
land enrolled across the state.
The program started in 1988
with 26 South Dakota landown-
ers taking part. Now, 25 years
later, three of those original 26
contracts still have land leased
for Walk-In Area.
The four individuals involved
in the three original contracts –
Bud Thorpe, Dwight and Harold
Wookey, and Robert Weber – will
be honored at the GFP Commis-
sion meeting on Aug. 1.
“Their participation in the
Walk-In Area hunting access pro-
gram has significantly con-
tributed to South Dakota’s
hunting heritage, culture, and
economy,” SD GFP Secretary Jeff
Vonk said.
“Every year over 200,000 peo-
ple hunt in South Dakota to
spend time with family and
friends, enjoy the great outdoors
and provide food for their tables.
Having a place to go hunting is a
hunter’s primary concern, and
these landowners have opened up
opportunities for so many people,”
Tony Leif, director of GFP’s
Wildlife Division, said. “Thank
you to Bud, Dwight, Harold,
Robert and everyone else who has
partnered with Game, Fish and
Parks and our Walk-In Area pro-
gram over the past 25 years. Your
cooperation has helped make this
program a model for many other
SD Game, Fish
and Parks
honors three
landowners for
25 years of
hunting access
