Dedicate a Luminaria Relay For Life
Relay For Life participants and donors remember loved ones lost to cancer and honor those battling the disease by dedicating luminaria bags. Luminaria bags are transformed and illuminated after dark. The Relay For Life of Quad County Luminaria Ceremony begins at 9:30 p.m. on the West end of the Boulevard in Wall on September 14, 2013. Each luminaria is personalized with a name, photo, message or drawing in memory or honor of a friend or loved one who has been affected by cancer. As the sun sets, the luminaria candles are lit and light up the night! It is a beautiful ceremony and everyone is welcome to come and partake. Anyone can dedicate a Luminaria in honor of someone. In Kadoka bags are available from any member of the Kadok Town Team Relay For Life or Dana Eisenbraun. Recommended donation for decorating the bag is $5.00 and these proceeds all go to Relay. Decorated bags can be turned back in to any Relay team member. We hope you will help us circle the Boulevard on September 14 with these beautiful creations. Pick up your bags soon and begin decorating. Then come out and join the Event in Wall on the 14th and see for yourself how beautiful these are! This is a time for everyone to get involved in the fight against cancer. During this event we will have several special ceremonies where we will Celebrate, we will Remember and we will Fight Back! Several Relay For Life teams are working on various fundraisers to raise money. Although Relay Teams gather for this event, the public is also welcome to attend and join in. Besides our ‘special ceremonies’ we will have great talent performing, delicious food being served and much more. If you have any questions, please call Kelly Lurz at 279-2249 or Sue Peters 279-2211.

Please step-back in time with me through this article, starting at our country's beginnings. Historical Williamsburg, VA was a favorite destination for family trips--staff there dressed in- period costume and spoke as they did in that era--a fascinating look into the past. At the Printer's Shop, among the Ben Franklin-type posters and newspapers, was a small shelf of books, perhaps two feet long. Visiting with the young printer, he commented that the collection belonged to a rich patron and they were making copies and explained that, this valuable personal library, worth hundreds of dollars in the 1700's, would be worth millions today. Books back then were a sign of wealth and education—a priceless commodity. In the early 1800's, a young Abraham Lincoln walked many miles just to borrow and return books; an avid reader, his education was mostly self-taught. Education was the way out of poverty for him and millions of others. Wealthy steel magnate, Andrew Carnegie, donated millions in the late 1800's-early1900's for establishing libraries throughout the United States, providing opportunity for the common person to obtain information and knowledge--despite one's financial or social status. Public libraries became a way to help disseminate information and knowledge to the populous. Fast forward to rural western South Dakota during the mid-1900's. Mercedes MacKay, South Dakota State Librarian, promoted bookmobile circuits throughout the state. These bookmobiles stopped at homes throughout the countryside, bringing a wealth of knowledge and information to underserved rural areas and reservations. With the guidance of Ms. MacKay and the SD State Library, community-minded individuals established Kadoka Library on May 20, 1962. Three years later, Ms. MacKay approached the Kadoka Library board, asking if they would consider hosting the northern station of a tri-county bookmobile circuit. This circuit served three counties—Shannon, Washabaugh and Jackson, and was called the Sha-BaughSon Bookmobile Circuit. County affiliation was approved for this tax-supported program and thus, Jackson County became involved as one of the financial supporting agencies for the bookmobile circuit. This bookmobile service lasted for another six years (1968), until statewide reorganization of schools changed this
program. Bookmobiles were no longer considered economically feasible and their use discontinued. Instead of terminating library services for rural residents, Ms. MacKay proposed forming branch libraries, with the Kadoka Library serving as the main library--thus, Jackson County Library was established in 1968. The newly formed library board decided that four library branches locate within the communities of: Belvidere in Dec. 1970, Interior—Jan. 1971, Long Valley—May 1971, and Wanblee—Sept. 1971. Local school attendance centers provided a gathering place for residents in their respective locations. Through a “gentleman's agreement” between county and school system, the four county branch libraries were housed within their respective school facilities. With the closing of the Belvidere School (1977) and the Wanblee School (1994), the county-owned library collections were subsequently dispersed among the remaining libraries. This unwritten “gentleman's agreement” held fast for nearly 45 years. However, this outdated arrangement for the remaining county branch libraries at LongValley and Interior has not sufficiently served ALL rural residents of Jackson County with library service. They have instead become exclusive “school libraries” with little commitment, direction or funding from the schools themselves. The realities encountered now in 2013 force changes in the way the library serves Jackson County residents. Embracing change opens new opportunities to serve needs of future residents to the best of our ability. This is our calling to future generations as a library—to do the best we can to provide for their future need for information resources—no matter the medium.

Jackson County Library Today
Today, only two branch libraries remain as part of the Jackson County Library system, Long Valley and Interior. Charged with the duty of monitoring county funding, Jackson County commissioners propose a redirection for library funding-- closing the remaining, obsolete branch libraries at Long Valley and Interior and focusing on one, county-wide facility. Library-related decisions fall into the hands of the Library Board and Director they hire, but the heavy burden of budget responsibility falls on the shoulders of the county commissioners. After almost 45 years, most people are unaware that the libraries located within
Long Valley and Interior schools are actually funded by Jackson County. They are NOT “school” supported libraries. These branch libraries have devolved into exclusive school libraries, using county funding and resources for school purposes alone. Kadoka Area School is responsible for serving their own educational directives and student population. Schools in Kadoka and Midland already have school libraries located within their attendance centers--the schools, NOT the county, is responsible for providing equal service to Long Valley and Interior attendance centers. Jackson County is the ONLY library system in the state that has public library services (paid with county tax dollars) for an exclusive group of students and staff. A school library's function is to serve the specific needs of the student population. Jackson County Library is a public library system and serves ALL county residents. Public libraries have a different focus compared to the school’s purpose of student education. This current library situation eliminates public service for non-school-related residents. Perpetuated through time, this erosion makes improvement, cooperation, and change, difficult or non-existent--everyone suffers from the lack of progress. These branch libraries have long-outlived their original purposes of outreach services meant for ALL residents of rural Jackson County. Today, technology and travel eliminate isolation and enable easy
access of services, business, and pleasure—provided elsewhere. Technology availability and our current economic downturn reveals increased usage of public libraries nationwide. Programming at Jackson County Library in Kadoka has ballooned (over 500%) because of new opportunities available to enrich life here in Jackson County. Library service is NOT disappearing, but alive, changing and evolving. Libraries no longer equate to "just" books! Rather, Public Libraries provide services, information, technology, programming, and other media for ALL residents of the Jackson County service area. Just like the disappearance of the bookmobile, “school library branches” are obsolete and we need to move into the 21st century. Change has not, or will not, eliminate the need for library, books, and reading, but has emphasized and complimented their importance. Books, technology, and other forms of media are only tools— helping people find what they need, (and not always books) is the purpose for which public library service now strives today. This is the wealth which Abraham Lincoln sought, what we seek and need today, and must plan for future Jackson County residents. --submitted by Debra Moor Jackson County Library Director

From the U.S. Senate | Senator John Thune
sel in the chest and capable of delivering large amount of fluid and medicine as needed. On Sunday, only antibiotics were needed, and not other things to help blood pressure and such, so the port could easily handle that. Alas, within a half hour of accessing the port, Chance again got the shakes. I was confused and went for a short walk to try to make sense of it. Then it dawned on me. The port had gone bad and was collecting bacteria. If you accessed it, the bacteria flooded Chance’s system and set him back into shock and other places we didn’t want to go. I rushed back to Chance’s room and said, “The port has gone bad! Don’t take out the central line!” The nurse looked at me like I’d gone mad, but I stayed right there to make sure they did what I said. They did, and further tests proved I was right. The port will have to be removed which is okay. We haven’t needed it a lot, but it has been handy from time to time. Chance’s condition improved fairly soon this morning so, although we may be here a day or two more than we thought earlier today, we might be on the right track. There might also be some bacteria problems with Chance’s stomach tube and trach, but at least the port won’t be pumping poison into his bloodstream. So, the shadows have cleared some at present for which we are quite happy. The rest of that part of the 23rd Psalm, by the way, goes, “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil for thou art with me.” As you can see, our Lord has certainly been with us this past week, and for that we are extremely glad. He’s been going ahead of us, providing good doctors and nurses, and chasing the shadows away.
Lookin’ Around | Syd Iwan
Sometimes you have to “walk through the valley of the shadow of death.” Well, we’ve had a few shadows lurking around this last week, but we’re all still here. It, however, was touch and go a few times. As it happened, son Chance had an immunoglobulin (IVIG) treatment a week ago Wednesday. This medicine, given through his port, is designed to counter the muscle weakness and other effects of his myasthenia gravis. It is often given for three days every two or three months. (A port, in case you aren’t familiar with those, is a device planted just under the skin of the chest that leads to a major blood vessel by the heart. It is easier than having to always insert an intravenous (IV) needle into the arm.) That first IVIG treatment went okay except Chance’s temperature rose later that evening to over a hundred degrees for no apparent reason. We were supposed to have another of the three-hour treatments the next day, but we decided to wait a bit in case the temperature rise and the IVIG were related. On Tuesday, though, almost a week later, we gave it another go. That was apparently a bad idea since Chance developed a severe case of the shakes within a half hour of the start. This did not set well with me, and I had them discontinue the whole thing at once. I wasn’t sure what was going on, but I didn’t like it. Chance was shaking like you would if you came in from getting thoroughly chilled in zero-degree weather. We unplugged the needle and went home. Just a bit later, though, Chance’s temperature started to rise. At 102, we called the hospital and said we were coming back. The temperature rose to over 104 before we got there, not to mention that his heart rate and respiration went way up and his blood pressure and oxygen saturation went way down. (We have equipment to measure those things since they’ve been needed from past experience.) These are all signs of shock and can be fatal if not dealt with right away, and sometimes even then. At the local hospital, they did some tests and strongly recommended we head to a larger hospital west by ambulance, which we decided to do. It was the wee hours of Wednesday morning when we arrived. We had originally thought of just taking Chance in the car by ourselves but then finally decided on the ambulance for various reasons. The ambulance was a good idea since our boy’s blood pressure dropped alarmingly, and they needed to throw on the siren and flashing light and make tracks. A crew of five met us at the city emergency room and went right to work. They were efficient and soon had Chance out of the “scary” category although still not out of the woods. From there we went to the intensive care unit (ICU) where things gradually improved over the next few days. Antibiotics were being used to kill off the Klebsiella bacteria that had somehow gotten into Chance’s bloodstream causing what is called “sepsis.” It can be very serious. By Sunday, the doctor thought we could maybe go home in a day or two depending on how things went. He then said to remove the central line in Chance’s neck and resume using the port for the injection of antibiotics. The central line, incidentally, was installed originally in the emergency room and is a line to a major blood ves-
Every year, South Dakotans of all ages enjoy attending the fairs across our state. Whether it is the Turner County Fair, Central States Fair, Brown County Fair, Dakotafest, the State Fair, or any event in between, these fairs mark an annual tradition that families look forward to all year. I know a trip to the State Fair is not complete for me if I don’t stop by the Pork Producers’ or Cattlemen’s booth for a sandwich and learn the latest news from livestock producers. Fairs are also a chance to see familiar faces and
reconnect with old friends. Many of the fairs provide educational opportunities for young people to meet other students who have similar interests from around the state. FFA and 4-H students look forward to opportunities to exhibit produce and craft items, or show the animals they have carefully raised in the months leading up to the fair. When they aren’t competing, many of the young people will take a ride or two, pick up a yard stick, or play a few games. Adults can enjoy perusing the booths at exhibit halls, where they can find the latest gadgets and
home products. Many enjoy listening to speakers, watching the daytime entertainment, or taking in an election year debate. At night, the whole family can round out the day with a concert from a favorite band or attend the rodeo for some entertainment. These large performances always draw a crowd and invite a larger audience to the fair. Time spent at the fair helps create lasting family memories. Hopefully everyone has had a chance to take in at least some of the sights, tastes, and sounds of this great South Dakota summer tradition.

South Dakota’s Fair Tradition
Fair season is here and it’s come faster than we all imagined. Our kids are already hauling themselves back to school and hitting the books, and we’re all trying to squeeze just a little bit more of summer out of each day. Many families across South Dakota, including mine, are also flocking to the local fair for a day or evening full of rides and delicious food. Our state’s fair tradition reminds me how lucky I am to call South Dakota home. These fairs have become much more than a night out with family and friends. Kids from all around our state showcase their talents through cattle shows, baked goods and roping competitions. Bryon and I take our three kids, Kassidy, Kennedy and Booker, out to taste test, cheer on riders and walk through the livestock barns. I continue to be amazed by the hard work and dedication that some of our kids put into raising and showing their animals. It is a wonderful display of our state culture and community. Fairs also give us a unique opportunity to reconnect with South Dakotans from all walks of life. Just the other day, I was remembering the many nights Bryon and I walked cattle around the State Fairgrounds in Huron in the middle of the night, allowing the cattle to release some pent-up energy from the day’s show. Sometimes, these moments feel like they just happened yesterday and they are so special to me, which is why I will continue to bring my family out to some of the best gatherings our state has to offer. I was recently in Rapid City for the Central States Fair and had a great day meeting and talking with folks from all across the state. My daughter, Kassidy, came along with me and we enjoyed making new friends, sampling some good food on the midway, and good entertainment at the rodeo that evening. If you haven’t had the opportunity to make a trip to a fair this year, I hope you’ll consider joining me at the South Dakota State Fair in Huron on Friday, August 30th. I’ll be hosting a town hall at the Women’s Building with House Agriculture Committee Chairman Frank Lucas at 11:00am CDT and would love to hear what’s on your mind. No matter which county or local fair is in your area, all fairs present a unique opportunity to create lasting memories with friends, family and the entire South Dakota community. I hope to see you at a South Dakota fair sometime soon.
Social Security | Howard Kossover, Public Affairs Specialist
Your questions, Our answers
Q: I work part-time while receiving Social Security retirement and will earn less this year than originally estimated. Can I change my estimate now? A: This refers to the annual earnings test. Yes, update your 2013 earnings estimate with Social Security now if your original estimate has changed. Your own earnings from gross wages or net self-employment can reduce Social Security benefits to you during a year until you reach full retirement age (FRA). Earnings test amounts for 2013 are at www.ssa.gov/retire2/whileworking.htm and in SSA publication 05-10069, How Work Affects Your Benefits, at www.socialsecurity.gov/pubs/EN05-10069.pdf. Pensions, investment and other non-employment earnings are not included for earnings test purposes. If you have not yet reached full retirement age, keeping your estimated amount of calendar year earnings current with Social Security is important. This is especially so when your original estimate was below the earnings test amount and you will actually earn over the earnings test amount. If you now expect to earn more than originally planned this year, and the amount will be over the 2013 earnings test amount for your age, then updating your estimate now can help prevent or reduce the chance of your being incorrectly paid and needing to refund money to Social Security. If your current estimate is lower than originally expected, updating it now can help release any withheld benefits to you faster. Revise your earnings estimate up or down as needed during the year. Report your actual earnings at the end of the year, if earning over the annual limit for your age. People receiving disability benefits do not have an earnings test and should contact Social Security to learn about available incentives if returning to work. Immediately is the best time to report changes to Social Security, including changes to your address, earnings or marital status. A list of reportable items is in “What you need to know when you get Retirement or Survivors Benefits” (SSA publication 05-10077) at www.socialsecurity.gov/pubs/10077.html.

Retiring Soon? Don't Forget Tax Implications
If your retirement is not far off, you've probably already started to estimate what your living expenses will be after the regular paychecks stop. Most would-be retirees remember to include routine expenses like housing (rent or mortgage), medical bills and prescriptions, insurance premiums, transportation – even food and entertainment. But don't forget to factor in taxes, which can have a substantial impact on your cost of living, depending on where you live and what your sources of retirement income will be. Here are a few tax-related issues to consider when budgeting for retirement: Social Security. Most people can begin collecting Social Security benefits as early as age 62, albeit at significantly reduced amounts than waiting until their full retirement age (65 for those born before 1938 and gradually increasing to 67 for those born in 1960 or later). Although many states don't tax Social Security benefits, the federal government does. Depending on your "combined income" (adjusted gross income plus nontaxable interest earned plus half of your Social Security benefits), you could end up owing federal income tax on a portion of your benefit. It's complicated, but basically: Single people whose combined income is less than $25,000 aren't taxed on their Social Security benefit. For combined income between $25,000 and $34,000, up to 50 percent of your benefit may be taxed. Over $34,000, up to 85 percent may be taxable. For married couples filing jointly: benefits aren't taxable for combined income below $32,000; benefits for income between $32,000 and $44,000 are up to 50 percent taxable; over $44,000 – up to 85 percent taxable. To learn more about taxation of Social Security benefits, read IRS Publication 915 at www.irs.gov. Some people discover after beginning to collect a reduced Social Security benefit that they can't make ends meet and must go back to work, which can backfire: If your annual wages exceed $15,120, you will lose $1 of Social Security benefits for every $2 you earn over that amount (investment income doesn't count.) Rest assured, however: These benefit reductions are not completely lost: Your Social Security benefit will be increased upon reaching full retirement age to account for benefits withheld due to earlier earnings. IRA and 401(k) withdrawals. After age 59 ½, you can start withdrawing balances from your IRA without paying the 10 percent early withdrawal penalty – although exceptions are made in cases including disability, qualified first-time homebuyer distributions and certain medical expenses. However, you will pay federal (and state, if applicable) income tax on IRA withdrawals – except for Roth IRAs held at least five years, whose contributions have already been taxed. With 401(k) plans, you can withdraw funds after age 55 without the 10 percent penalty if you are no longer employed by the company sponsoring the plan. Other taxes. Some people move to another state after retirement thinking they'll lower their tax burden. For example, seven states do not tax personal income; however, another two tax only dividend and interest income. And five states charge no sales tax. But because other taxes and cost-of-living expenses vary significantly by community, you should only consider such moves after doing thorough research. The Retirement Living Infor(www.retireCenter mation features mentliving.com) breakdowns of the various kinds of taxes seniors are likely to pay, state by state, including those on income, sales, fuel, property and inheritances. Bottom line: Be sure to consult a financial advisor long before retirement to make sure you fully understand all the many tax and income implications..

A Small, Important Step at the Crow Creek Pow-Wow
Children tend to be trusting to the point that they need to be taught to avoid strangers. Adults sometimes go to the opposite extreme, quick to mistrust anyone they don’t know. I often think that has been the case in the relationship between Native American people and nonIndians in South Dakota for far too long. Many of us grow up in separate communities. We seldom interact, and we don’t get a chance to know each other as people. We grow up not trusting each other. A small yet important step toward changing that happened this past weekend at the annual powwow of the Crow Creek Sioux Tribe. This year’s pow-wow marked the 150th anniversary of the founding of Fort Thompson, the headquarters of the tribe. Anticipating a large crowd for the event, Chairman Brandon Sazue and the Tribal Council reached out to the South Dakota Highway Patrol to lend a hand with law enforcement and crowd control. State authority of any kind on tribal land has long been a sensitive issue, so the council and the chairman knew they were taking a risk. They did it for the safety of their citizens. The Highway Patrol responded enthusiastically, offering five troopers and two police service dogs with handlers for the weekend. By all accounts, the joint operation succeeded beyond expectations. Troopers learned some of the customs and history of the Crow Creek Tribe. BIA law enforcement officers and troopers had the chance to know each other on a personal level, as well as professionally. And those attending the pow-wow had a chance to see troopers as people, not just officers in uniform. Troopers assisted in law enforcement and traffic control, sure. They also brought to the reservation the rollover simulator, a seatbelt safety demonstrator. They served coffee and pancakes, took part in raising and lowering the flags and interacted with the people constantly, especially with the children. Troopers involved already have volunteered to return next year if invited. Tribal leaders said powwow attendees saw the troopers as humans, people who respected the tribal members and their culture. None of us is naïve enough to think one event on one weekend will change decades of distrust. Improving race relations is an ongoing, difficult task. It requires persistence, by all involved. It also requires some risk, reaching out and getting to know each other and beginning to trust each other. At the Crow Creek pow-wow last weekend, a group of good-hearted people did reach out. It’s a small step yet an important one. We can be hopeful.

The Real Road to Health
Are you on a diet? Have you been exercising? Are you trying to eat the right foods? Have you noticed that every week new research comes out on something concerning your health? Perhaps you’re confused? Recently scientists released research that disclosed that if a person is somewhat overweight you’ll live longer than people who are too thin or the medically optimal weight. However a year or so ago, research by scientists established that the thinner you were, the longer you would live. Extreme lean was keen. Grossly underweight was great. The sixties model Twiggy was being considered for sainthood. Research on food is all eschew. For years chickens were humiliated because eggs were considered the food of the devil. Looking at an egg would cause cholesterol to rise 20 points. Real butter was blamed for clogging arteries worse than the LA freeway at rush hour. Now research discloses an egg a day is actually beneficial for you and rich in vitamin D. Real butter is now considered better for you than the artificial plastic laden spread. There are more diets around than illegal’s crossing the border. Everyday new diets arrive like the Ding-a-Ling diet in which you only eat Ding-a-Lings. It’s for ding-alings. There’s the 50 Calorie diet, the Neanderthal Diet and celebrities that were fat but now are skinny diets that are everywhere. I personally like the sprinkle diet in which you sprinkle your food with some kind of pixie dust and you magically lose weight. If you exercise, research isn’t helpful. For years research disclosed running was good. Now, research stresses running doesn’t work as well as walking. There’s gismo’s galore on cable programs that research (who’s I’m not sure) divulges 10 minutes of a certain machine or a shaky jiggle belt around the waist is all you need to be eternally thin. No diet, no sweat. On the opposite side there’s an insane guy doing insane workouts that promises rock hard bodies in 30 days, if it doesn’t kill you. So it’s no wonder that people are confused and demoralized in the health world today. Exercise facilities are loaded after January 1st as people swear they’re going to get into shape. By March, those gyms are desolate, lonely shells. So I’ve decided to start a new health and workout franchise. There will be an all you can eat diet. I will guarantee you can gain weight or your money back. No strenuous exercise necessary. In fact, each facility will have couches, video games, TV’s but no remotes so a person will have to get off the couch to change the channel. I’ve done some market research on this. Everyone I’ve talked to thought they would join. I’m going to be rich.

A family pot luck supper was held at the home of Orville and Shirley Josserand’s home on Sunday evening. Those attending included Merrilee Grimes, Elissa and Levi Grimes and four children, Austin and Jessica Jean Grimes and two sons, Tom Grimes, Stacy Green of Box Elder and Megan Kingsbury Wiggs who is visiting relatives in the area from South Carolina. Phyllis Word attended the wedding of Wade and Patty Fox at the Belvidere park on Saturday. The young couple will make their home at the Fox ranch near Belvidere. Visitors at the Frying Pan Ranch south of Kadoka on Friday night were Luke Horacek of Yankton, Mary and Andy Horacek of Steamboat Springs, CO, Jessie Carlson and family of Nisland, John Lyle Willsey and Nona and Kieth Prang. Ardis and Bob McCormick drove to Buffalo, WY, on Wednesday of last week to visit at the home of their daughter and family, Nancy and Marv Majerus. On the way home Friday they stopped in Spearfish and had lunch with Darlene and Ron McCormick. Andrea Majerus is beginning her first year in high school. Bud Olney had a couple of his daughters visit during the past week. Lori Olney of Sioux Falls and Darla and Steve Schueth of Boulder, CO, came to see their dad, and visit with other relatives and friends. Lyndee (Heck) and Brent Orr of Tulsa, OK, and their three sons, Luke, Joel and Aaron, of Wilmington, Delaware, visited at the home of Don and Freddie Heck from Thursday to Saturday last week. They had spent four days at the Heck cabin before coming to Kadoka and when they left on Saturday they were on their way to visit Tim and Susan Thune in Sioux Falls. The Orr boys are in Delaware doing mission work. Chuck and Suzanne Parkinson of Rapid City stopped at the parental Larry and Alvina Parkinson home on Tuesday of last week. Suzanne went on to Huron for work with her job, returning home later in the week. Chuck returned to Rapid City Tuesday afternoon. Correction in last week’s news: Mathew and Teresa Plaggemeyer attended the wedding of his classmate, John Hann, in Sioux Falls last week. The wedding was not in Pollock as stated. Kadoka Area schools opened on Monday of this week, with very hot temperatures predicted for the next week or so. August weather has finally arrived and of course, just as school was beginning. Be careful as you drive in town, as many children walk to school. An interesting article and picture on prorodeo.com tells of Louie Brunson’s trip to the Kennewick, WA, Horse Heaven Roundup rodeo held August 22 where he placed first with a score of 90 points, winning $4,258. The trip lasted 20 hours beginning with his car breaking down a half hour from Interior. He then called Cole Elshere and was able to borrow his van, which then broke down 12 miles from Superior, MT. He was able to find a used car lot and bought a 1988 Pontiac 6000 with 95,000 miles on it for $2,000, the cheapest car on the lot, finally getting to Kennewick and riding to a 90 pt. win.

Belvidere News | Syd Iwan, 381-2147
Wade Fox and Patty Irigoyan were married on Saturday evening in the Belvidere Park. It was a warmish day but fairly decent by 6:00 p.m. After the wedding, supper was served at the church hall, and a dance came after that at Club 27 in Kadoka. Wade’s mom, Roxie, said the dance was kind of fun since a lot of little kids took to dancing and sometimes practically took over the dance floor. Tom DeVries hitched up his team and wagon and drove Wade and Patty around in it for a bit. The new couple later headed west to Wyoming and other points west for a few days before coming back home to the ranch. Roxie said the neighbors pitched in to help set things up, cook, clean, and do whatever needed doing. She said they are blessed to have such good neighbors. Wade’s brothers came on Friday to be here for the wedding. Jesse came from Gillette, WY and Shawn came from Mobridge with his wife and daughter, Jodi and Bailey. Everyone left again on Sunday. Roxie said everything went well and was enjoyed by many. Jan Rasmussen had knee-replacement surgery on August 13 in Rapid City and then went next door to Westhills Village to recuperate. Jan has an apartment at Westhills where she often spends the winter instead of at the ranch. Last week, however, Jan started experiencing extreme pain and was taken by ambulance the few blocks to the hospital where they got the pain under control and treated her for this and that until Monday of this week when she returned to Westhills. Jan’s son and daughter, Dan Rasmussen and Amy Lehman, have been in attendance as necessary. Jan said her granddaughter, Kate Rasmussen, started her senior year of high school last week at Sheridan, Montana. According to Jan, interesting things always happen to Kate and this continued at Sheridan where she was promptly voted in as homecoming queen after only having been there a few days. A few years ago, Kate had a pet crow that entertained a lot of people. She had raised the thing from right after it was hatched, and it became quite a pet. It flew over to Mission and Kadoka and was sighted there but then came back to Kate. It was named Zazu and communicated somewhat with various sounds. Kate was hoping it would learn to talk as some crows do, but it never quite got that far along. It didn’t return the next year but it stayed around here until November the first year. Earlier this summer, Kate went on a ten-day mission trip to the Dominican Republic with other local kids from Kadoka and surrounding area. Later in the summer she went to Denmark with Jan’s nephew, Chuck Tesar, and his wife. The Tesars had hosted an exchange student from Denmark and went to visit her and tour Denmark. They invited Kate to go along which she was happy to do. John Addison competed in bareback at the Central States Fair rodeo in Rapid City this weekend. His wife and son, Samantha and Koye, went along to cheer him on. John wasn’t in the money that night but neither did he break any bones. Jamie Willert competed in the rodeo as well but didn’t win either. Back at home, John continues to ride a lot of horses in training exercises. He also said that summer finally came and provided the normal hot days this last week instead of earlier in July and August as usual. Georgann Addison was in Rapid City on Saturday competing in barrel racing which isn’t too unusual. That night, the family took in their first volleyball game of the season in Murdo since daughter Jami was playing in that. Jami is a freshman this year so Jim and Georgann probably have at least four more years of bleacher time to look forward to. Jim said fishing is somewhat on hold at present since the moss has grown so thick that fishing become tedious unless you use a boat to get out past it. Both Jim and his common fishing partner, Betty Kusick, will resume fishing when conditions improve or when they have the ambition to use a boat. Brett and Nikki Bonenberger and kids attended Wade and Patty Fox’s wedding dance in Kadoka on Saturday night. Last weekend, they attended the Central States Fair where they went on rides, checked out the chickens, rabbits, and other livestock, and saw various exhibits. They actually attended the fair on their return from a weekend family camping trip at Palmer Gulch which Nikki says is a haven for kids. Those along on the trip included Keith and Pam Bonenberger, Brett’s sister, Alisha, with her finance and daughter, Brandon and Joslin. Alisha and Brandon will be getting married next weekend in Mitchell. Kade Bonenberger was also there with his friend, Kaila. This was kind of a summers-end get together before school and the fall routine set in. Delores Bonenberger didn’t go along and was happy enough to stay home, tend critters, and keep things under control there. Nikki said there are plans to have some balloon rides at the Belvidere Dam this coming weekend. That might prove to be interesting. Chance Iwan spent a good bit of last week in the Rapid City hospital attended by his folks, Syd and Corinne. They all hope to return home early this week. At the hospital they were able to visit with such locals as Jan and Dan Rasmussen, Amy Lehman, Bud and Dorothy Stickler, and Stu and Vicki Wilson. Jan and Dorothy were patients in the hospital and Stu was having some tests.
Gateway News | Lola Joyce Riggins, 837-2053 (Let it ring.)
Save the Pearl group met in the community room for their monthly regular meeting. Plans are being finalized for their third annual Badlands Trail 5K walk and run. Paula Vogelgesang presented the design for the T-shirt and they are nice. Our maintenance man has the yard mowed and looking so nice. The humidity and the heat are sure helping the grass grow. Last week it showered about everyday. I see by the dinner list that Norma Hopkins is out of the hospital. In visiting it sounded quite scary at first, but the stay for the tests have given her a good report. Val Cork will be having surgery on Thursday. Please keep her on your prayer list. Val works at the nursing home. Bonnie Riggins is up and down. Her daughters, Ella and Marla, grand daughters, her son, Stephen, and Dixie Cadman are all exchanging times to be with her. Stephen usually comes in the evening to give the ones staying with her a chance to take a walk and get some fresh air. The quilters were busy last week. Susie, Jean, Shirley, Lova, and Bonnie were there. Visitors are in and out of the building. I did see Dixie Cadman and Cloreta Eisenbraun. Thought for the week: Steel the mind, soften the heart, and satisfy the soul. Let your heart guide you. It whispers, so listen closely.

“The true aim of everyone who aspires to be a teacher should be, not to impart his own opinions, but to kindle minds.” Frederick Williams Robertson Norris School had an open house on Tuesday, August 27. Rose West and Jeannine Woodward were among the Master Gardeners meeting at the home of Doneta Denke Saturday, August 24. The Blaine Krogman horse sale was Saturday in Winner. Dan and Heather Taft helped work cattle last Wednesday at Wes Schmidt’s. Heather has also been busy putting up garden produce. Orlana Schmidt and her teammates took part in the women’s ball tournament at the Rosebud Pow Wow on Friday. Sharon Ring was in Martin running errands Saturday morning. Recently Ace and Edna Kary were in New Mexico for the funeral of Earl Sullivan, Edna’s uncle. Eric and Rae Beth Staab of Mayetta, Kansas, arrived for a short visit at the Kary’s. Jean and Rebekkah went with them on Saturday, August 17 to attend the outdoor wedding of Alison Martin and Bradley Short at Nemo, SD. After the reception and visiting, they stayed overnight, and traveled to the Hills to visit the Robert and Cordelia Johnson family on Sunday. They returned to Norris later that day, and then Eric and Rae Beth went on home to Kansas, as Eric had to be at work on Monday. This past Thursday Jean accompanied Ace and Rebekkah Kary to Rapid City, where Rebekkah enrolled at the School of Mines. She settled in at her dorm and got ready for her freshman orientation. Richard Krogman was among those attending the England’s branding party on August 13. On the 15th, Bob and Marilyn Kent arrived from California. They joined the rest of the Krogmans in attending the parade and other activities Saturday at Frontier Days in White River. Glen Krogman worked at the rodeo all three days. The Kents and Krogmans attended the rodeo on Sunday also, and Monday they all went to visit Clarence in Winner. Glen also went along to visit Clarence, and then continued on to his home in Fargo from there. Wednesday the Krogmans and Kents took in the pen of three activities in White River, and Thursday went to visit Clarence again. Saturday they took Clarence to watch Blaine’s horse sale in Winner. Bob and Marilyn Kent’s, friends from California, arrived for a visit at the Krogman’s. They had taken a daughter to her college in Missouri, and came back this way to visit. Pam Allard reports that her mother is continuing her chemo therapy, and asks for continued prayers on her behalf. Ken Koistenen visited Maxine Allard on Thursday, and also checked his trail cameras. Jim Letellier kept an appointment in Philip last Monday. Tuesday, August 13, Bruce, Jessie and Stephanie Ring took June with them to Rapid City. They ran a few errands and then took June to the airport to catch her flight to Seattle to visit Daniel and Michelle Ring and family. Bruce and Jessie took care of more errands and then returned home. The Ring’s finished combining Rueben’s spring wheat on Thursday, August 22, and finished Jake Ring and Sons spring wheat on Friday, the 23rd. June enjoyed her days visiting with Daniel, Michelle, Jake, Gabe, and Noah and getting re-acquainted with baby Grace, who is now seven months old. There were lots of indoor and outdoor activities, including hiking trails at Scenic State Park, and going to the beach there when the tide was out. It was amazing how many star fish that could be seen, and the variety of them. One afternoon was spent at the Naval Museum near the base at Bremerton, and then in the Fountain Park next to the museum. Very early Friday morning, Daniel took June to SEATAC to catch her flight back to Rapid City. Jessie, Stephanie, Ryan and Reina met her plane, and then kept eye appointments and did some other business, including picking up a new chest freezer at Lowes. They returned home that evening. Saturday morning Jessie helped Ryan gather exhibits for the garden contest at the Rosebud Pow Wow, loaded them into the Excursion (once it was returned to them), added Reina, Reno, Riley and Risa, and then picked up June and they made it to the pow wow in time to enter their exhibits by noon. They took in other events around the arena and enjoyed watching the dancing and visiting with their mother, Lisa. June helped the judges, and also worked at the free ice water next door at the puppet trailer. Two of Ryan’s vegetable exhibits received Best of Show in the Junior division, and June’s Roma tomatoes received Best of Show in the adult division. That was thanks to the deer netting received at a previous garden contest at the pow wow that was spread over the tomatoes and kept the deer out of the tomatoes this year. Ryan shared the carnival ride tickets he received for his entries in the garden contest with his brothers and sisters and they enjoyed the rides. The Bruce Ring’s are expecting company this week from Riceville, Iowa. The Torey Ring family went to Murdo Thursday and took care of their dental appointments all in one day. The Hubers finished combining what was left of their wheat this past week. The hail had ruined a lot of it. It also pretty much wrecked Nicole and Kenda’s gardens. Nete Heinert entered jams and jellies in the Todd County Fair, and her blueberry jelly won the jelly contest sponsored by Ball and Kerr. Howard, Nette, Chris and Beau helped work cattle at a neighbors’ ranch on Wednesday, the 21st, and Howard and Beau took in the Farm Fest in Mitchell on August 22. Saturday was the Romey family reunion in Chadron State Park. Besides family from Nebraska and South Dakota, some came from as far away as Texas and Arizona. Monday Howard and Nette headed for Hot Springs to visit Earl Weiss, who turned 85 on Friday. On Monday morning, Carol Ferguson met Irene Kaufman in Mission and the ladies traveled on to Winner to spend the day. Carol had some maintenance work done on the Pontiac while she and Irene visited Kaitlyn Ferguson and got to hold new baby NaTalia who was born on August 13. She's a beauty. After lunch they went to visit Janet Belle Hicks and Marie Banek, both residents at the Golden Prairie Manor. Carol picked sweet corn at her sister Margie and Gene Popkes' on Tuesday morning and has been freezing corn ever since. Ed helped work cattle at Wesley Schmidt's place on Wednesday and Ed and Carol were in Pierre on Friday.

Badlands National Park to celebrate 97th birthday
Badlands National Park will celebrate the 97th birthday of the National Park Service by offering free admission on Sunday, August 25, 2013. “Birthdays are a time to celebrate and we want everyone to join the party,” said Badlands National Park Superintendent Eric Brunnemann. “National parks celebrate our shared heritage as Americans and offer special memories for all. So visit both the North Unit and South Unit of the park – wander a trail, enjoy the landscape, take in the scenery. Enjoy all that Badlands National Park, our local public lands, and communities have to offer.” With the creation of Yellowstone National Park in 1872, The United States was the first country to set aside its most significant places as national parks so that they could be enjoyed by all. When President Woodrow Wilson signed legislation that created the National Park Service on Aug. 25, 1916, there were 37 national parks. The mission of the NPS extends beyond parks into communities across the country, where we work with partners to help preserve local history and create close-tohome recreational opportunities that revitalize neighborhoods and enhance the quality of life. To see what we do here in South Dakota, go to www.nps.gov/badl.
On June 25 -28, many youth headed to the hills to 4-H Camp, at Camp Bob in Custer SD. Many of the youth are already 4-H members, but the camp is open to non4-Hers as well. This camp session, which included Haakon, Jackson, Jones and Mellette counties, along with 9 others, had nearly 130 attendees. Earlier sessions struggled with rainy weather, but we had perfect temperatures and no storms. The theme was survival skills and activities that the youth took part in were GPS workshops, shelter building, a hike, were they learned edible forest plants, what to put in your backpack for hiking in the wilderness, fire starting, canoeing, first aid, and a workshop where they made survival bracelets. Free time for the campers was spent swimming and canoeing, including catching turtles, fishing or playing games on the green (the big lawn). Games this year were tug-o-war and a bucket brigade (sponsored by the Custer Volunteer Fire Dept), where two large teams passed containers of water to a destination “outhouse”, pouring the water
on the roof, and filling a pail from the rain gutter. The first team to fill their bucket, won. Needless to say, this ended up with most every camper and staff soaking wet, but everyone had an awesome time. Those campers who are in 4-H, have the opportunity to receive a scholarship, awarded by the SD 4H Leaders Assoc., just for sharing their camp experiences. Following is the camp experience for Gage and Tagg Weller, 4-H members in Jackson Co. who and attended Camp Bob in June. I’m Gage Weller, and this was my 5th year at Camp Bob – so you can tell I have fun there! I love seeing my old friends and like meeting new kids. I really liked canoeing and the bucket brigade – we were soaked! I had a great time and learned a lot with the survival workshops. I especially liked making the survival bracelets. A typical day at camp starts out with wake up, then flag ceremony, and breakfast (cabins rotate for KP – Kitchen Patrol). Then we have a workshop or two, lunch (KP again), quiet time (stay in our cabins), free time and more work-
shops and supper (KP again). In the evening, it’s campfire time, and lights out. We also do the talent show and the dance on the last night of camp. The dance is a big deal and all the kids and staff have a lot of fun. I’ll miss Camp Bob next year – I’ll be going to teen camp or TLC (Teen Leadership Camp in Brookings) because I’m too old for youth camp. Hi. I’m Tagg Weller. This was my first official year at Camp Bob. I had a lot of fun and made many new friends. My favorite things were the waterfights we got in after the bucket brigade race. All the campers were soaking wet! I also liked the shelter building workshop. The survival bracelet I made in the workshop got a purple at Achievement Days – that was another thing I liked doing at camp. I also liked canoeing and catching turtles. One day, we caught 23 turtles! I plan to go back to camp next year, and meet up with my friends. If you are interested in attending Camp Bob in June of 2014, contact your 4-H Advisor or your local extension office.

Cowboys compete at Central States Ranch Rodeo, Jones receives Top Horse award
Kadoka Press - Thursday, August 29, 2013 -
Whoever said Kadoka wasn’t on the map, well they were wrong
Michael Jones and his horse, Genuine, received the Top Horse award at the ranch rodeo during the Central States Fair that was held on Sunday, August 25.
On Friday, August 23 a Google Maps car was traveling the streets of Kadoka, collecting data to update the website. Updating the maps with the street view is quite a process since each street and road must actually be driven and photos taken. To match each image to its geographic location on the map, signals are combined from sensors on the car that measure GPS, speed and direction. This is done in order to reconstruct the car's exact route, and even tilt and realign the images. To avoid gaps in the panoramas, adjacent cameras take slightly overlapping pictures, that are then we "stitched" together into a single 360-degree image. Special image processing algorithms are used to lessen "seams" and create smooth transitions. Currently in South Dakota data is being collected in Brookings, Custer, Fall River, Haakon, Jackson, Minnehaha, Moody, and Pennington counties.

Some Mysteries Are Tough To Solve
For my wife's birthday (I am not allowed to mention which one) I surprised her with round trip tickets to her family reunion in upper New York State. Out of courtesy to her, I elected not to include myself in her little vacation. After all, it is her family and that is just the kind of man I am. I must say I was looking forward to a week in the house by myself, where I could be the absolute boss. Nobody to tell me what to do. Nobody to tell me where to go. For a week, I would be the king of my castle; the captain of my ship; the pilot of my spacecraft. Actually, I need more than one week to do all of these things. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage deserves time off and away from Yours Truly. All year long, she works hard and most of the time has her hands full trying to untangle me from one foil after another. Lately, it has developed into a foil-time job. The day finally came for me to take her to the airport and see her off. As I kissed her goodbye, my thoughts roved back to the week that lay before me as a freelance husband. All the way back from the airport I played my Barry Manilow CD. I like Barry Manilow because he can't Smile without Me. Believe me, a smile creased my clock all the way home. One difference between men and women, or maybe I should say husbands and wives, is the notion of cleanliness. Wives have the idea that cleanliness is next to godliness. If true, ours is the godliest house on the planet. Even God must wipe his feet before coming into our home. As a man, I see absolutely no connection between cleanliness and godliness. I do my best thinking, not to mention praying, in the midst of clutter. If godliness is related to happiness, then I am in heaven when I am in the midst of hodgepodge — the podgier the better. Along about Friday afternoon I was absolutely in heaven. The house was a complete wreck and I could not have been happier. About this time, an incident developed that brought me to my senses. I was about ready to take a shower when I noticed the soap and shampoo in my shower were gone. I knew reserves are somewhere in our house but for the life of me; I could not put my fingers on any of it. This is by my wife's design. Notwithstanding, and I was standing in my birthday suit, I needed to take a shower. Then a brilliant idea struck me. Since my wife has not been home all week, the shampoo and soap in her shower should be in great supply. Snatching my towel from my shower, I headed for hers. One thing I noticed in my wife's shower was the variety of bottles. Not wearing my glasses, I could not read the labels on any of them. However, I was not here to read bottles, but to take a shower, and so I disregarded the labels. I turned on the shower, adjusted the water temperature and began my shower. I reached for the nearest bottle, which I assumed was shampoo. After dousing my hair with a generous portion, I began scrubbing my head. I noticed, however, no suds. I grabbed another bottle and repeated the procedure with the same results. After using 17 bottles, I finally found one that produced suds. I remember thinking to myself, what does my wife do with all these bottles in her shower that do not do anything? Nevertheless, in a moment I forgot the whole incident, stepped out of her shower and toweled off. I made a cup of coffee and settled into my easy chair to watch a little television. As I sat there, I noticed a strange fragrance. This is the difference between men and women. A man enjoys strange smells. A woman, on the other hand, enjoys fragrant aromas. I smelled a fragrant aroma with a strong tinge of fruit about it. It smelled as if someone had brought me a bowl of mixed of fruit. I knew for a fact, there was no fruit in the house, so this fruity aroma puzzled me. I got up and walked around the house looking for this bowl of fruit. No matter what room I was in, I could smell the fruit. It was the strangest thing I ever experienced. Finally, I went back to my easy chair and cup of coffee not knowing where these fruity fumes were coming from. Some mysteries are tough to solve. Then something hit me right between the eyes. The fruity bouquet was coming from me! I took several healthy sniffs and discovered I smelled like a bowl of fruit. I could not understand this phenomenon. Then I remember the bottles in my wife's shower. I went back to investigate and discovered my wife had bottles of fruity concoctions of every variety. A verse from the Bible came to mind. "But I have all, and abound: I am full, having received of Epaphroditus the things which were sent from you, an odour of a sweet smell, a sacrifice acceptable, well pleasing to God." (Philippians 4:18 KJV.) The only fragrance worth dwelling on is a life well pleasing to God.

Results of Uncontrolled Weakness
Read Romans 6:17-23 It is normal for children, at some point, to become aware of growing stronger. “Let’s see your muscles,” a parent will say. The child bends an arm, makes a fist, and proudly displays the evidence. Parents often encourage their children to increase strength and overcome any weakness. Some youngsters cooperate, but others act indifferent or feel defeated even before they start. We all have weak areas in our lives. How do we respond to them? Do we make a plan to overcome them? Do we pretend they are unimportant or surrender to them without much effort? None of these responses is what God desires for us. He wants our weaknesses to remind us how totally dependent we are upon His strength and how great our need is for Him. His plan is for our frailties to be a powerful motivator to deepen our relationship with Him. Handled improperly, those areas in which we lack ability can become stumbling blocks that hurt us and those around us. A proper response—namely, turning to God—means He will take charge of our weaknesses and no longer allow them to dominate our lives. Samson was a man whom God set apart and equipped for divine purposes. But he had an uncontrollable weakness, which he allowed to run unchecked until it destroyed his work for the Lord (Judg. 13-16). We, as Christ-followers, have also been set apart for God’s work and equipped by Him. We should heed the warning of Samson’s life and turn quickly to God every time our weakness surfaces. Delay could mean disaster.

Winter Wheat Variety Testing Results The winter wheat variety testing results is a document highly anticipated by winter wheat growers each year. The results are certainly late in 2013, due to much of the wheat not emerging or even germinating until spring, and a cool and rainy spring and summer in many parts of the state. Harvesting the variety plots was delayed as was the harvest for many producers. As of this writing, not all of the results have been compiled, nor updates to the recommended, acceptable and promising lists. A temporary publication including what plots have been analyzed is available online at: http://igrow.org/agronomy/profittips/variety-trial-results/, and at the SDSU Regional Extension Centers. The publication also includes the agronomic characteristics that are so important in choosing varieties to plant such as lodging resistance, winterhardiness, test weight, protein content and disease resistance. As additional information becomes available, the online publication will be updated as quickly as possible. Certified Seed Grower Directory Another important document for winter wheat growers is the current “Summer Edition” of the Certified Seed Grower Directory. Paper copies have been mailed to SDSU Regional Extension Centers, and it is typically posted on the South Dakota Crop Improvement Association and Seed Certiwebsite at: fication http://www.sdstate.edu/ps/sdcia/gr ower-directory.cfm.

rectory includes growers who have fields planted with Foundation or Registered seed and who have made application for certification. All fields listed in the directory have passed all inspections to date. In order to be finally certified, all seed must pass all laboratory analysis conducted on representative samples of the conditioned (cleaned) seed lot. Challenges in Harvesting The 2013 small grain harvest has been challenging in many areas of the state due to wet weather and weeds growing in the crop because of it. As is the case for many situations in the farming business, having a plan in place should various circumstances occur can help make important decisions. Although the opportunity to make and implement plans that would have helped for this harvest is past, the 2013 harvest season was a learning experience. When weeds begin showing up in a crop that is mature, or nearly so; and wet weather is delaying harvest, a harvest aid herbicide application may be warranted. If weather limits the time when conditions allow harvesting to be accomplished, incurring the additional expense of hiring custom operators to help, and/or harvesting the crop a little wet and paying drying costs may pay in the end. When one considers the lost income due to discounts for reductions in test weight, high levels of dockage, shattering, etc., spending additional money to get the crop harvested and in good condition may be well justified.

Four Groups Petition Court for Permission to Defend COOL
Four groups representing, farmers and ranchers, rural communities and consumers filed court papers on Friday, Aug. 23, to defend mandatory Country of Origin Labeling (COOL) from a spurious lawsuit filed by the meatpacking industry. R-CALF USA, Food & Water Watch, the South Dakota Stockgrowers Association and the Western Organization of Resource Councils petitioned the court to allow them to intervene and defend COOL. Country of Origin Labeling was included in the 2002 and 2008 Farm Bills, but it has been under constant attack from domestic and foreign meatpackers that do not want consumers to know where their food is from and do not want to pay American farmers and ranchers a fair price for their livestock. "Our interest is in preserving COOL for generations to come," said South Dakota Stockgrowers Association (SDSGA) Executive Director Silvia Christen adding, "The COOL regulation that requires the meat labels to list each country where livestock was born, raised and harvested benefits U.S. cattle and sheep producers who can differentiate and promote American born and raised livestock in an increasingly international supermarket meat case." The meatpackers allege in their lawsuit that the final 2013 COOL rules violate their constitutionally protected rights to freedom of speech, that the labels were not specifically authorized by the Farm Bill and that COOL labels provide no benefit to consumers. "The meatpackers are demanding a first amendment right to deceive consumers by insisting on vague and misleading labels that do not let consumers choose allAmerican beef, pork and lamb products," said Food & Water Watch Executive Director Wenonah Hauter. The meatpackers' filed their lawsuit to prevent the USDA from implementing the final 2013 COOL rules, which requires muscle cuts of beef, pork, lamb and goat meat to display where the animal was born, raised, and slaughtered and prohibits the confusing "commingled" mixed-origin label that has allowed meat from allAmerican born and raised livestock to be labeled as if it were a product of multiple countries, like "Product of USA, Canada" or "Product of Mexico, USA. The meatpacker alliance that filed the suit against USDA's 2013 COOL rules included nine trade associations, including one Mexican and two Canadian livestockproducer groups as well as six domestic meatpacker or meatpacker-producer groups. Tomorrow, the meatpackers will argue for a preliminary injunction to immediately prohibit the new COOL rules from going into effect.
