Labor Day fun in the sun
Ronda Dennis
No was sitting for very long with all the water activities at the Belvidere Dam on Sunday and Monday of Labor Day weekend. Families gathered to ride the pontoon and jet ski, try
their luck at fishing and visiting with friends.
Future of the county libraries at the schools still unclear
After much discussion and public
input, the future of the county li-
braries at the Long Valley and Inte-
rior schools is still unclear.
With over 50 concern county resi-
dents attending the special Jackson
County Commissioners meeting on
Thursday, August 29 at the Long Val-
ley School, no final decisions were
made regarding the libraries.
The reason we decided to hold this
special public meeting, was to gather
information and ideas from the
county residents on how to proceed
with the libraries that are located at
the schools in Long Valley and Inte-
rior, said Commissioner Larry
Denke. Weve hit a crossroad here
and not sure which direction we
should go.
Like several other counties across
the state, Jackson County is also
struggling to have a balanced budget
and looking at ways to cut costs.
As of now, the budget for 2014 is
balanced, but in order to have a bal-
anced budget it requires us to use our
reserve fund balance and then there
would be no extra for next year, ex-
plained Denke.
Currently we have removed the
request from economic development
in the amount of $5,000 and predator
control in the amount of $3,400, and
our other cut to consider is the li-
braries within the schools.
With county no longer providing
employees or funding the libraries, it
would reduce the budget by approxi-
mately $10,000. Since the libraries
are housed within the school, the
county did not have any expense for
facility use or utilities.
No one attending the meeting was
in favor of closing the libraries, but
the commissioners were looking for
alternate was to fund the library.
Ideas were to either turn the libraries
over to the school or if the booster
club or other organization would be
interested in taking care of them.
When asked what other areas of
the budget had been reduced, com-
missioners responded stating they as
commissioners had cut their budget
items. Only one commissioners is re-
ceiving health insurance benefits,
they no longer receive mileage and
they opted to not receive an increase
in pay, so that hopefully they can
raise the wages of the county employ-
The importance of having libraries
that are accessible to the students
was the main concern of the those in
Closing our library is not what we
want to do, but the county is running
out of funds and we really do not
know what to do, said Commissioner
Glen Bennett, we need your help in
how to move forward in the future.
Many questioned when it became
apparent that funding the libraries
was a problem. The commissioners
replied that it just came to the sur-
face during the current budget meet-
We have hundreds of miles of
county roads to care for, provide pub-
lic safety, along with several other
services that the county provides,
said Denke, with the restrictions
from the government on what can be
levied, we just can not continue to
provide all the same services with the
increase in expenses.
In close of the meeting, it was de-
cided to have Commissioners Denke,
Larry Johnston and Ronnie Twiss
meet with Kadoka Area School Board
members and superintendent, to dis-
cuss options available to continue to
have libraries at the schools.
I believe that having a book in
your hands to read or look to at the
pictures is important to childrens ed-
ucation, but Im just not sure if the
county should be responsible for pro-
viding the library at the schools, said
A date and time for the next meet-
ing was not set, but will be open for
concerned public to attend.
With a nice breeze coming off the water
and a long list of activities going on, the
Town of Belvidere held a two-day celebra-
tion over Labor Day weekend.
However, it all started after many days
of labor from a crew of hard workers.
Dead trees were removed, landscaping
done, gravel hauled in and many yards of
cement was poured to make a new boat
ramp on the south side of the Belvidere
Dam just east of the pump house. Work
was completed by Charles Black Bear,
Randy Peters and Jory Rodgers. John
Rodgers oversaw the entire project.
"The council members, Rudy Reimann
and Wayne Hindman, and finance officer
Jo Rodgers helped plan all the events,
and through their leadership and fore-
sight, the event was better than ex-
pected," said John Rodgers.
Sunday morning activities didn't go as
planned as there was no ribbon cutting
and wind conditions did not allow Black
Hills Balloons to launch. Early Monday
morning two hot-air balloons went into
flight with John Rodgers and Randy Pe-
ters in the rainbow colored balloon with
pilot Steve Bauer. Taking flight in the sec-
ond balloon, Old Style No. 10, was Caro-
line Manke and Tracy Radway with pilot
Scott Nash.
Although it appeared that the flight
was headed toward Philip, once they
reached altitude, the balloons took a
northeast current toward Midland and
landed west of town at Clint Saucer-
man's. Balloon chasers picked them up,
held a champagne post-flight celebration.
Each of the passengers received a flight
certificate and are now ranked an aero-
static adventurer.
Bauer gave a talk about balloon flights
dating back to 1780 in France up to pres-
ent time. The reason for the champagne
is because early day farmers were super-
stitious of the balloons and come out with
pitchforks. Balloon pilots then started
giving the landowners a bottle of cham-
pagne for letting
the land on the

took advantage of
the newly groomed

Craig and Diana Coller's pontoon was
enjoyed by many on Sunday. Rides were
given and several tried their luck at
water skiing, knee boarding and tubing.
Mark and Tammy Carlson provided en-
tertainment with their jet skis and paddle
"Labor Day in Belvidere has been quiet
for many years, but this year with all the
family and friends getting together, we
had a great weekend," said John Rodgers.
"We are looking forward to a bigger and
better celebration next year."

Learning Curve
I have learned so many inter-
esting things this week. First and
foremost, Ive finally figured out
how to sleep comfortably in one of
those awful hospital chairs. You
know, the kind that has wooden
armrests so your arms go to sleep
and tingle within minutes of using
them. Some of them also have
such strong springs that if you
push them back into the reclining
position, they snap you right back
upright unless the upper part of
your body weighs over 200
pounds. If you get one of those bad
ones, you are flat out of luck un-
less you tie it down with a cement
block or have learned how to sleep
sitting up. If you are fortunate
enough to get a weaker spring,
then you may be in business.
Heres what you need to sleep in
a semi-cooperative hospital chair,
namely three pillows, a small
sheet, blanket or bedspread, and a
sweatshirt or towel. You first place
the chair where it has enough
space to recline. Then you drape
the sheet or other covering over
your feet and legs and, after re-
clining the chair, grab the pillows.
Pick the thinnest pillow for behind
your head, and position the other
two over the wooden armrests.
Place them at an angle so the cor-
ners meet over your lap, and rest
your arms on them at the same
angle as the pillows are situated.
Finally spread the sweatshirt or
towel over your chest and arms
and cover completely if the room is
cold. If it is warm, you might not
need it at all or the covering over
your feet. If you follow these sim-
ple instructions, you are apt to be
very comfortable indeed and sleep
like a baby. Such, at least, has
been my experience this week.
Ive even felt rested in the morn-
ings, and my dreams have been
The one minor difficulty with
all this splendor is that it has to be
replaced every time you get up to
go to the bathroom or help with
your sons care. Im getting pretty
efficient at getting settled back in
by now, of course, so it doesnt take
very long. At first it was a little te-
dious, but now its just routine.
Then we come to rocks. There
are rock borders all around the
hospital and, in fact, all over town.
They must all come from the same
place because the assortment of
stones, pebbles etc. is always
fairly much alike. Its about what
Im used to from the ranch except
all gathered together in bunches.
Ive had time to observe them
closely when taking breaks from
son Chances room and sitting on
a wall or something sipping coffee.
Must of the rocks are fairly hum-
drum and not very exciting. A few
have interesting colors, streaks, or
embedded materials. What has
been catching my eye, though, are
the occasional small flat round
ones that are grayish-brown with
white flecks. I once started looking
for a perfectly formed one of those
for the lack of anything better to
do, and Ive been looking for the
perfect specimen ever since. I
havent yet found a completely
round one that is unchipped, but
Im bound to sooner or later, dont
you imagine? I have found a heart
shaped one that went into my
pocket along with a nice oval.
What I plan to do is let these
three pebbles roll around with my
knife, keys, and loose change there
in my pocket until they get all
smooth and nice. This may take a
considerable amount of time, of
course, but it should happen even-
tually. I know a little about polish-
ing rocks since we had a tumbler
some years ago in which you place
rocks, grit, and water and then let
the thing roll slowly around for
many weeks until the rocks are
polished. My pocket isnt as active
as a tumbler, but given enough
time the result should be the
same, I would think. I didnt really
know what to do with those pol-
ished rocks from long ago, come to
think of it, so the whole affair is
somewhat an exercise in futility.
Thats okay. It gives me something
to think about and work towards.
That is useful when tending some-
one in the hospital. The whole
business also reminds me of Gods
efforts to polish us up a bit. He
puts us through hard times occa-
sionally to smooth off the rough
edges and make us shine. I won-
der if Im shiny yet. Must be get-
ting close.
It looks possible that Chances
stay may end shortly which is fine
since weve already been here
about two weeks. Heaven knows
thats long enough, but now I have
a nice collection of rocks and know
how to sleep comfortably in a hos-
pital chair. Thats probably a good
thing, and getting Chance back to
better health is even better.
School Days
Rising temperatures replaced
the roar of motorcycles and the
smell of State Fair funnel cakes as
families across the state began an-
other school year. Back to school
ads in full swing, teachers prep-
ping classrooms and lesson plans,
and fall sports back on the news-
casts mean students and parents
are adjusting to their new rou-
Football games, marching band
practice, cross country meets, and
dance competitions begin filling
up evenings calendars. While
homework assignments, tests, and
group projects keep students run-
ning from one thing to the next.
College students wrapped up
summer jobs and internships they
used to make some much needed
cash for tuition payments and late
night pizza. The well-stocked
fridge and quiet roommates are
gone, as is the free laundry service
many enjoy while living at home.
With their cars packed up, these
young adults headed back to cam-
The back to school season is bit-
tersweet for many parents, some
of whom watched their kids go off
to school for the first time, others
saw their last child off for their
senior year of high school, and
even more are just watching their
kids grow up too quickly.
In the hustle and bustle of the
beginning of this new school year,
let us also pause to remember the
important role that parents and
teachers play in the education of
our students. Teachers play a piv-
otal role in shaping the future suc-
cess of their students; and each
and every one of us have special
memories of teachers who put in
the extra effort to help us succeed
inside and outside of the class-
We are fortunate in South
Dakota that our state offers stu-
dents a high-quality education af-
fording them opportunities both
inside and outside the classroom.
The future of our state lies in the
success of our children; lets strive
to make this year the best school
year yet in South Dakota.

Embracing E-Learning
Now that kids are back in
school, weve traded in baseballs
and bug spray for calculators and
highlighters. Families across
South Dakota are readjusting to
early mornings getting kids ready
to catch the bus and evenings
spent working on homework at the
table. In the Noem household,
were getting ready to move our
oldest daughter Kassidy back to
college to start her sophomore
year, while Kennedy and Booker
try to get back in the school rou-
Life in the classroom has
changed quite a bit since many of
us were in school. Long division no
longer requires time spent with
pencil to paper, but rather number
crunching in a calculator. Al-
though our students are still
taught how to solve problems the
long way, technology has made a
substantial impact on education.
Elementary students now use
iPads to learn cursive and memo-
rize multiplication tables, and stu-
dents in middle and high school
can now take exams and write pa-
pers on laptops in the classroom.
When I was in college, my fa-
ther died unexpectedly in an acci-
dent on our farm. I made the
tough decision to leave college and
return to our family farm to keep
our operation up and running. I
always intended to complete my
college degree, but like so many
individuals, life got in the way. I
was raising three kids, running
businesses and spending my days
in the field. After years spent out-
side the classroom, it was a con-
versation with my sister that
challenged me to return to school
and finish what I started.
I enrolled at South Dakota
State University, and because of
the availability of online classes, I
was able to complete my Bache-
lors degree, even while running
for Congress and serving my first
term in Washington, D.C.
I know firsthand that some-
times life doesnt allow you to sit
in a classroom and take classes
the traditional way. This is why I
recently hosted an E-Learning
roundtable in Sioux Falls with
local universities to find out ways
the federal government can im-
prove affordability and access to
higher education.
A lot of the discussion focused
on a regulation issued by the De-
partment of Education which
forces states to follow federal re-
quirements when deciding
whether to grant an institution,
including institutions that offer
online education programs, per-
mission to operate within their
state. I voted to repeal this bur-
densome regulation last Congress
and will continue to work to give
students access to classes, regard-
less of what state classes may be
Education has changed drasti-
cally since most members of Con-
gress were in school, which is why
I formed the Congressional E-
Learning Caucus with Rep. Jared
Polis (D-CO). As Congress pre-
pares to consider the reauthoriza-
tion of the Higher Education Act
this Congress, I look forward to
sharing the feedback I received
from students and administrators
during my E-Learning roundtable
with my colleagues.

class or have an experience with
distance education that you would
like to share, I would encourage
you to send me an email through

Immigration Reform
Also an Important
Labor Issue
Each year on Labor Day, we
take time to reflect on the produc-
tivity of Americas workers and
our responsibility as a nation to
support their efforts.
This year, as we gather to cele-
brate, Congress has a timely op-
portunity to create an even
stronger American workforce for
generations to come. They can do
so by fixing Americas broken im-
migration system.
The broad impacts that immi-
gration reform would have for our
economy are well documented. Ac-
cording to the non-partisan Con-
gressional Budget Office and
Social Security Office of the Chief
Actuary, the bipartisan Senate im-
migration reform bill would boost
our economy by 3.3 percent, re-
duce the deficit by a projected
$850 billion and add nearly $300
billion to our Social Security sys-
tem by the end of the decade.
But immigration reform would
also address critical labor issues.
Todays broken system leaves mil-
lions of workers in the shadows
a dangerous situation for these
workers and their families and
provides no clarity for U.S. em-
ployers, the majority of whom
want to do the right thing. At a
time when we should be providing
rules that empower American pro-
ductivity, todays broken immigra-
tion system only furthers
This is especially true for agri-
culture. Farmworkers drive an in-
dustry that is directly related to
one in 12 American jobs. Theyre
in the fields as crops are planted,
cared for and harvested. Theyre
in packing houses and processing
facilities. They help get food to
markets and stores that ends up
on kitchen tables across the coun-
About half of these workers are
unauthorized, and many more are
employed under a temporary
worker program that is difficult
for farmers and farmworkers alike
to understand. In the years to
come, the resulting instability in
our agricultural workforce threat-
ens productivity on farms and
ranches, and impacts rural com-
munities where agriculture is a
thriving part of their economies.
The commonsense immigration
reform measure passed in June by
the U.S. Senate, with bipartisan
support, would provide a compre-
hensive set of rules to ensure a
stable and adequate workforce for
agriculture. It expands and re-
forms the temporary worker pro-
gram to allow a three-year visa for
agricultural workers, while enact-
ing a pathway to citizenship for
temporary workers who are com-
mitted to continue working in
agriculture. And it provides a fair
opportunity to earn U.S. citizen-
ship for those who are in our coun-
try without authorization a
process that will require going to
the back of the line, settling taxes
and paying fines for those who
want to earn citizenship.
The result would be a modern
system that makes sense. It would
bring millions of farmworkers out
of the shadows and give them a
fair chance to strive for the Amer-
ican dream. It would help farmers
and ranchers focus on growing
more and expanding their busi-
ness. It would give agriculture the
people power to keep driving eco-
nomic growth and creating jobs.
This Labor Day, Im hopeful
that Congress can find a way to
solve this modern labor challenge
facing our nation. We have a long
history in America of supporting
those who work hard and Con-
gress has the chance to make even
more progress by passing com-
monsense immigration reform.

Preparing Our
Students For College
And Careers
August has come to a close, and
though temperatures are still
high, fall is almost here and stu-
dents have already settled back
into their classrooms. This time of
year always brings me back to
when I was in school. I always en-
joyed school. In fact, through sev-
enth grade, I was at the top of my
class. Of course, that wasnt too
difficult I was the only person in
my class!
Much has changed since I at-
tended that one-room country
school. Back then, a gallon of gas
was 40 cents, a new house cost
around $25,000 and fewer people
went to college about 17 percent
of people in the U.S. had at least a
bachelors degree. Now, that num-
ber is around 28 percent.
Along with the escalating num-
ber of people seeking higher edu-
cation, the increasingly
competitive global economy re-
quires todays workforce to have
greater skill sets and more educa-
tion. In order to succeed, our stu-
dents need to leave high school
ready for a postsecondary experi-
ence at a university, a technical
institute or a shorter certificate
program and, ultimately, the
How well are we preparing our
youth in South Dakota? Recent
news indicates we are doing pretty
According to the state Depart-
ment of Education, 74 percent of
our students are proficient in
math and reading.
Also, South Dakotas ACT
scores went up last year, and we
continue to outperform the na-
tional average even though we
have one of the highest ACT par-
ticipation rates in the nation. We
also surpass the national averages
in each subject: English, reading,
math and science.
Still, there are areas where we
can improve. Although more of our
students take the ACT and attend
college, we have a higher than av-
erage college dropout rate. As one
factor which limits success, some
students enter college needing re-
medial help. To overcome this
problem before college, the South
Dakota Department of Education
and Board of Regents are working
to increase college readiness by of-
fering free remedial coursework.
Students dont have to retake a
whole course, but instead can
focus on the specific components of
courses where they need some
extra help. These courses are
available to high school seniors via
the South Dakota Virtual School.
I am proud of the quality of ed-
ucation we offer here in South
Dakota. Our students do well be-
cause we have committed teachers
and parents who take an active
role in their childrens education.
As our world continues to change,
we will continue to work toward
even better solutions to prepare
our children for the future.
Heres to a great school year!

Your questions,
Our answers
Q: Is it ok to laminate a
Medicare card to protect it?
A: I am not aware of any recom-
mendation against laminating
Medicare cards. The Social Secu-
rity Administration does recom-
mend against laminating Social
Security number cards although
doing so will not invalidate the
card. Do not routinely carry your
Social Security card with you.
Lost or damaged Medicare
cards are easily replaced online at
no charge. From the Social Secu-
rity homepage at www.socialsecu-

days at the address that Social Se-
curity has on record for you. Do
not use the online replacement re-
quest if you recently changed your
mailing address and have not yet

same for everyone entitled to it, no
matter how that coverage was ob-
tained. Details about what is cov-
ered by Medicare are on the
Medicare website,
Railroad employment is not
covered by Social Security. Legis-

is part of a separate retirement
system from Social Security, the
two systems coordinate benefits
when a person has employment
through both.

Beware of the Pitfalls
of Public Wi-Fi
Ever notice how many people
walk down the street completely
engrossed in their smartphones
and tablets? I fully expect to see
one of them to walk into a light
post one day.
Although it's great having ac-
cess to email, social networking
and online shopping anywhere,
anytime, such convenience comes
with a certain amount of risk, ac-
cording to Jennifer Fischer, Head
of Americas Payment System Se-
curity, Visa Inc. "Unless you're
hyper-vigilant about using secure
networks and hack-proof pass-
words, someone sitting at the next
table or halfway around the
world could be watching your
every move online and stealing
valuable personal and financial in-
formation right off your device,"
says Fischer.
"There are two primary poten-
tial dangers with Wi-Fi," notes
Fischer. "The first is using an un-
secured network as many public
hotspots are. With a little know-
how and the right tools, cyber-
criminals could easily eavesdrop
on your online activity.
"The second hazard is phony
wireless networks that imperson-
ate legitimate Wi-Fi hot spots. You
think you're logged onto a trusted
network, but instead a cybercrim-
inal has hijacked your session and
can see all the private information
you access or input."

Cybercrime is a booming busi-
ness. According to the 2012 Nor-
ton Cybercrime Report, its global
price tag topped $388 billion last
year, more than the global black
market in marijuana, cocaine and
heroin combined. It impacts indi-
viduals, small and large busi-
nesses and governments alike.
Being able to access the Inter-
net anywhere anytime can be a
great convenience and time-saver.
Just make sure you know what
precautions to take when using
public Wi-Fi networks.

so proud of all of you.
Folks will remember, Alfonso
Bad Hand. He was named most
valuable Pitcher at the ball games
at Lakeview recently. No surprise
to those of us who watched him
from the time he was very little
here at Norris.

with their parents the James
Letelliers. That evening they en-
joyed a cookout.
Jim, Sue and Julie were kept
busy between the garden and
mowing. That is more than a full
time job these days. Everything is
still very green, growing and even
with the temperatures in the
triple digits last week , Jim got
stuck with the windrower! A per-
son has to remind yourself all the
time it is September, because it
sure doesnt look like it. The field
corn has a real big ear on every
stalk in some fields there are two!
It is a lovely time for a drive in the
Deb Ring of Spearfish came
home for the weekend and was
kept busy with the garden and
picking and canning. Sharon said,
I worked her to death. The gals

Early Labor Day morning, Ja-
Lynn Burma, Beaver, Jakki and
Jimmy, Julie Letellier and the
James Letelliers went to Belvidere

to Midland where they landed. It
was a fun event. You couldnt ask
for a more beautiful morning and
it was a great sight to see as they
went Up,up and away!
Harry and Jeanne Merchen and
their grandson, Ty, visited Maxine
Allard and Marjorie Anne Letel-
lier Labor Day morning. Marjorie
turned the Merchen coons loose
in the sweet corn while they were

mas returned to Sunshine.
Have a great week!
Tony Struble of Kentucky ar-
rived on Monday and spent sev-
eral days at the home of his
parents, Muree and Leslie Stru-
ble. He was able to visit many
other relatives and friends while

Pam and Keith Bonenberger
and Hellen and Vernon Uhlir went
to Mitchell on Saturday where
they attended the wedding of Al-

Bruce and Lila Whidby, Gwen
and Paul McConnell and Briana of

John Solon spent a few days in
the hospital last week due to the
West Nile virus. While visiting
with him on Monday, he says peo-
ple need to be really careful and
use insect repellent anytime you
are outside. About two weeks ago
he started feeling sick and in
about four days he was really
weak. Also said that there has
been at least two deaths in South
Dakota, one near Winner and the
other he thinks in Rapid City. It is
important to know that the virus
is in the area mosquitoes and that
precautions are necessary. John is
home from the hospital as of
Thursday but is still very weak.

The past couple of weeks we
have had several people stop by to
visit even with the high tempera-
tures and humidity outside. Those
stopping by were: Royce Garrett,
Esperanza Marie, and many other
family members and friends
dropped in to see Grandma Mary
Bull Bear. They seem to have such
a good time when they stop by!
Mary is continuing to improve and
loves her daily outings in the
Joy Parker was blessed Sunday
with her great granddaughters
coming by for church services.
Those visiting were: Charity,
Amariah, and Lander Tores, along
with Sandi Luisi. Also, stopping by
was Willma Carleton, Ron and Re-
nate Carson, Oliver and Gayle
Carson, and several friends
Elaine Kemnitz had a visit from
her husband, Don,.

Bob. She receives a lot of visitors
throughout the week, and enjoys
the morning newspaper and the
Kadoka Press. Micki is ready for
the football season to begin!
Jean Weller came to see Clara
Belle Weller on Thursday after-
noon along with Bud and other
friends dropping.
Lola Joyce Riggins stopped in to
visit with many of the residents
and stayed and played cards.
Shorty Ireland wants me to do
a SHOUT OUT for card players.
Some of the residents like to play
after the supper meal but are hav-
ing a hard time coming up with
players. Anyone interested please
drop in, Shorty will challenge any-
one out there!
Paulette and Rick Wilmarth
stop in on a regular basis to see
their mother, Alice Wilmarth.
Tammy Merchen did her hair on
Wednesday and that always
makes one feel so good. Keep up
the good work to all our beauti-
cians who come in and do the res-
idents hair.
Mr. and Mrs. Randy George
stopped by to see their father,
Robert Tridle. His wife, Roseanne,
has been very good about spending
a lot of time in Kadoka with Bob.
She is fortunate to be able to go
out to stay with Mary Schnee.
Mary and Roseanne got to be good
friends when Bob and Harold
Schnee were roomates.
Rev. Ray Greenseth from Murdo
came by to visit with Mary Ellen
Bunny Green had her good
friend, Betty Kusick, stop by to see
her. They had a good visit.

ternoon with a number of visitors.
Her son, Stephen, Marsha Sumpt-
ner, Phyllis Word, Cloretta Eisen-
braun, Lola Joyce Riggins, and her
daughter, Ella, her grandson,
Wayne, and two little grandsons
came to see her.
The Riggins family had another
worry when Clay Hindman was
injured in the bull riding this
week. He underwent emergency
surgery on neck and the surgery
went very well, but rodeo is over
for him this year. His rodeo friend
also broke his back this week and
had emergency surgery.
Carol Solon, who helps take
care of many of the residents, is
busy with her husband who had
been in the hospital at Philip and
had West Nile. Please remember
them in your prayers.

Chris, Anita, Stanley, Dylan, Nic-
hole and girls drove to New Un-
derwood to attend the rodeo.
Dylan won second and split third
with Ryan in bull riding. After the
rodeo they drove to Rapid City and
had supper before Nichole and
girls left for home in Colorado.
Linda Yellow Elk and her hus-
band have moved from the apart-
ments back to Wanblee.
Thought for the day: Your life is
your message to the world, make it
Belvidere celebrated Labor Day
weekend in style. A two-day com-
munity fling was held at the new
boat ramp on the Belvidere Dam
by the old pump house. This in-
cluded potluck dinners on both
Sunday and Monday and balloon
and boat rides and a fish fry. Ac-
cording to Mike Perault, probably
fifty people attended both days
and got in a lot of good visiting and
fishing. Balloon rides were given,
but windy conditions kept that to
a minimum. Pontoon boats were
also on hand for rides. Mike said
his wife and son, Marlene and
Bert, took in part of the festivities
as well. His sister, Dawn, was also
here from St. Paul, MN. She took
advantage of the long weekend to
come on Saturday, stay Sunday,
and leave again on Monday.
Carolyn Manke was one of
those who got a balloon ride. Other
passengers on her trip included
John Rodgers, Randy Peters, and
a Mrs. Radway from the
Milesville/Philip area. They lifted
off from the Belvidere Dam,
floated over the cemetery and then
continued on an hour farther
northeast where they landed in a
field in the Midland area close to
Highway 14, the railroad, and the
Bad River. It was a nice quiet ride
as balloon rides generally are, and
Carolyn said the country was the
greenest shes seen it in quite a
while. She wasnt quite sure what
ranches they passed over since
there werent any signs up there.
Carolyn said shes also been going
to a lot of farmers markets this
summer. She takes baked goods to
sell, and her son, Buddy, takes pro-
duce from his extensive garden in-
cluding such things as tomatoes,
cucumbers, and peppers. He has a
trailer and a cooler to help with
this marketing of his produce. Hail
put a little crimp in Buddys pro-
duction for a while, but things are
now bouncing back. The plants in
his greenhouses werent affected
very much at all, but the outdoor
ones were. At present, Carolyn
goes to the markets in Midland on
Friday, Murdo on Tuesday, and
White River on Wednesday. The
Midland affairs have been going
on since May, June in Murdo, and
the last month in White River.
These events are winding down for
the year now, but theyve been
quite active this summer.
Jo Rodgers said her mom, Car-
olyn Manke, came by and helped
her cut up some meat for the
meals served at the Belvidere
Dam this weekend. Her sister,
Jamie, also came with her hus-
band and son, Ray and Maverick.
They were returning to their home
in Wasta after having been to the
St. Louis area visiting Rays fam-
ily. With her various jobs at the
post office, store, and bar, Jo had a
busy weekend but also said it was
really fun. Many of the campers
left the dam in the afternoon and
migrated to the bar so that place
was fairly busy all evening as well.
John Rodgers, of course, got a bal-
loon ride with Jos mom, and son
Jory was in attendance at every-
thing too. On Tuesday, it was back
to work at the post office in Murdo
for Jo and back to school in
Kadoka for Jory.
Aaron, Michelle and Tyrel
Mansfield spent the holiday in
Rapid City visiting with Michelles
folks and Aarons sister, Alison,
and her husband and son, Mike
and Thomas. Alison and family
came from their home in Wyoming
and stayed with everyone else at
the home of Michelles folks.
Everyone returned home on Mon-
Mary Johnston had a busy
weekend too that involved the
wedding of her granddaughter,
Andrea, to Dana Kerns of Philip.
Andrea is the daughter of Lonny
and Carrie Johnston. The wedding
was held in Jim and Debbie An-
tonsons back yard, which was a
nice location for such an event. A
reception was then held at Club 27
which, of course, is run by An-
dreas parents. Larrys son,
Laramie, came with his wife, Kim,
and their three daughters from
their home in Clayton, NY, which
is about 20 miles south of the
Canadian border. Kims uncle
came along to help drive, and they
drove straight through both com-
ing and going. Others coming in-
cluded Larry and Jos daughters,
Linay and her three kids from
Martin and Cora Jo and a friend
from Rapid City. Things were busy
at Larry and Jos. Meanwhile,
Mary also had guests in the form
of her niece and two daughters
from Ogilvie, MN. Laramies
daughters also stayed overnight
with Mary and had such a good
time that they didnt really want
to leave and go back to New York.
Mary said the wedding was well
attended by people from Kadoka,
Philip, and the surrounding area.
It was a nice event. The new cou-
ple plans to continue living in
Eric and Pam Osborn were busy
making salsa this weekend as
their tomato plants have come
through this year. They make hot
salsa for Eric and medium for
Pam. They were aided by Erics
dad, Wib, and Pams daughter, Syd
Beth. The group all enjoyed some
beer-can chicken which was pre-
pared on the grill. This involves
emptying a beer can of half its con-
tents, and then putting it upright
into the body cavity of a chicken
with some spices and baking for
about an hour and a half. Eric said
it was very moist, really good, and
enjoyed by all. Other than that,
Eric said his dog got a lesson re-
cently in the importance of waiting
for a vehicle to come to a complete
stop before disembarking. The
hound decided to jump out of the
pickup when it was still going
about ten miles an hour which
wasnt a very good idea although
he wasnt really hurt any. Eric fig-
ures, though, that hes probably
learned his lesson.
Norma Headlee took advantage
of the long weekend to finish her
canning and freezing for the year.
Since she is now out of canning
jars and freezer space, she has no
plans to do a lot more in that direc-
tion. It was a banner year for gar-
dens thanks to recent rains
although not to recent hail storms.
There will be plenty of beans,
tomatoes, beets, and other produce
to last quite some time. Bill geared
up the rotary mower and leveled
part of the garden after Norma
was through picking. He also cut
up quite a few zucchini and fed
them to the bucket calves which
adore this vegetable. Buddy
Manke told Headlees about the
process of feeding zucchini to cat-
tle and it seems to work out really
well. Even the family dog got into
the act and started hauling squash
from the garden to the calves. He
also brought some cucumbers and
other produce that werent as pop-
ular with the cattle but were ap-
parently fun to carry around
anyway. Not many family mem-
bers came to visit Bill and Norma
this weekend since they are all
scheduled to come shortly to help
their folks celebrate their 40th
wedding anniversary later this
Rick and Ronda Dennis at-
tended the two-day celebraton in
Belvidere for Labor Day. They
camped Sunday night at the dam.

The Kadoka Area Kougars
opened up the 2013 football sea-
son against Jones County this
past Friday and was able to grind
out a tough victory over a physical
Jones County football team 34-20.
Defensively the Kougars were
led this week by junior linebacker
Dylan Riggins with 13 total tack-
les and 1 fumble recovery. Logan
Christensen ended the game with
11 tackles, True Buchholz had 9,
Logan Ammons and Sam Pretty
Bear each had 7, Chandlier Sud-
beck had 6, Gavin DeVries had 5,
Lane Patterson 3, Aaron Janis,
Matthew Pretty Bear and Herbie
ODaniel each had 2. Chandlier
Sudbeck and Logan Ammons each
also had a fumble recovery.
The Kougars were led in rush-
ing by Chandlier Sudbeck with 25
carries for 244 yards and 4 touch-
downs. Dylan Riggins chipped in
5 carries for 24 yards on the
ground. Our passing game had 5
completions on 10 attempts for 70
yards and 1 touchdown thrown by
Lane Patterson to Logan Chris-
tensen for 30 yards. Contributing
in the receiving department were
Sam Pretty Bear 1 for 15 yards,
Wyatt Enders 1 for 7 yards, and
Logan Ammons 2 for 18 yards.
Jones County had a big physical
line which gave us trouble on both
sides of the ball most of the night.
Offensively we were able to get
outside on them which is where
most of our big plays happened.
That allowed the middle of the
field to open up later in the game
as well as our passing game, but it
was a pretty tough go. For the
most part I thought our kids han-
dled it pretty well.
Defensively we were more of a
bend dont break defense against
the Coyotes. They are big and
physical and you just kind of have
to grab on and go. They controlled
the football more than we did with
shorter gains and longer drives,
but fortunately for us we won the
turn over battle and we were able
to make some adjustments in the
second half that helped keep the
Coyotes from scoring for most of
the remainder of the game.
This week the Kougars do not
have a game as it is our bye week.
Next week we return to action as
we travel to Wall to take on the
Eagles in another tough confer-
ence match up. Wall beat White
River in their opener 47-6 and
they travel to Murdo to take on
Jones County this Friday night.

Chandlier Sudbeck #21 makes his way through the defense and gains yards for the Kougars.
When Stacie Eichinger of Tucson, AZ, was in high school, she read a book titled Walk Across America by Peter
Jenkins. The book inspired her and after three years of planning, Eichinger is walking across America. Starting
her journey in Ocean Shores, WA, she put her hand in the water, turned around and started walking, with plans
to end in Savannah, GA. The trip will total 3,800 miles and after walking1,600 miles, and five pairs of shoes later,
she arrived in Kadoka on August 28. Pushing a cart that she designed, it contains all the necessity she needs for
survival including a solar panel to charge her cell phone. Volunteering for several years with Beads of Hope, her
walk is to raise funds for this organization. Beads of Hope was founded in Arizona and gives beads to children
who have cancer. Each bead is a different color and each color represents something different in the childs journey
to fight cancer. Beads of Hope are in over 150 hospitals across the nation and Eichinger will visit 20 of them on
her walk. Eichinger shares her walk with others on her blog or on Facebook walk4courage.

Read 1 John 5:13
Writing to the early church, the apostle John wanted to make something
perfectly clear: God offers His children everlasting life. Men and women in
Christ should have no fear of physical death, because their true livestheir
eternal livesare secure in Jesus. Todays passage is unique because in it,
John plainly states his purpose for writing. The point of his ministry was to
empower believers with the unshakable faith of eternal life in Christ.
The basis for this truth lies in . . .
1. The unchanging promises of God. Over and over in his gospel and let-
ters, the apostle declares Gods assurance of never-ending life. For example,
he quotes Jesus promise of eternity in John 3:16, 6:40, and 10:27-30.
2. The unconditional love of God. Our Father loves us so much that He
wants an everlasting, intimate relationship with each one of us. To achieve
this, He demonstrated His love in a remarkable way: by providing our salva-
tion at a great price (Rom. 5:6-11; 8:33-39).
3. The finished work of Christ on the cross. By offering His life as a sub-
stitutionary sacrifice on our behalf, Jesus provided the means of salvation
once and for all. Our part is to accept the gift He so freely gives (Heb. 10:23-
4. The witness of Gods Spirit to our heart. Our Father places His Holy
Spirit within every believer to testify to the truth of our salvation (Rom. 8:15-
Scripture tells us that we can have complete assurance of our salvation in
Jesus Christ. Does your day-to-day life reflect this confidence?

The Age Long Query:
Who Am I?
Last week I was tootling along
without a care in the world. Actu-
ally, I did have several cares but I
was ignoring them as much as pos-
sible. My basic philosophy is this,
the more you ignore something the
less you have to deal with it. This,
however, does not apply to the
Gracious Mistress of the Parson-
Experience has taught me one
lesson concerning women, espe-
cially wives. They will not stand to
be ignored, particularly by their
husbands. I have learned the less
attention I pay to my wife the
more I pay in other areas of life, if
you know what I mean.
So, ignoring the cares I had last
week, I was caught off guard when
I received a letter from my credit
card company. This was no
friendly, "how are you," kind of a
letter. Nor was it a cheery birth-
day greeting. I cannot tell you how
many times I have reminded them
of my birthday but to date they
have not picked up on my hint.
The ominous letter I did receive
informed me that along with mil-
lions of other customers my iden-
tity had been stolen. The letter
went on to assure me I had noth-
ing to worry about and they had
the situation well in hand.
That is easy for them to say.
They know who they are but what
about me? When I got the letter I
ran to my bathroom and looking
into my mirror -- nothing! My
identity was indeed gone.
I assure you I will worry until I
get to the bottom of this. I will not
rest until I know exactly who I am
and my identity is fully restored.
Of course, there is one problem
here. What if when I do recover my
identity I don't like myself? Can I
exchange it or get my money back?
For some reason the personal
information of millions of people
had been lost or stolen from the se-
curity of my credit card company,
which begs the question, how se-
cured is my personal information?
While I am in the begging
mood, another question comes to
mind. If someone has stolen my
identity, who in the world am I?
And, how do I reclaim my identity?
As a young person whenever my
mother was upset with me about
something I had done or did not
do, she would always look at me
and ask, "Who do you think you
If anybody in the world should
know who I am it would be my
mother. And if she he was
wrestling with the same question
I was wrestling with, how in the
world could I ever come to grips
with my personal identity?
It is hard enough discovering
who you are without somebody
casting dispersions upon that very
thing. Perhaps my mother and I
could work together in solving this
problem. After all, two heads are
better than one, unless one does
not know who he is.
I have spent years trying to find
myself. Once I thought I found my-
self but it turned out to be an old
pair of socks I lost three years
My problem is compounded by
this one thing, I did not really
know who I was before my identity
was stolen. I had my suspicions, of
course. However, somewhere in
the back of my mind, I really could
not come to grips with who I really
was in this world.
In the course of time, (actually
it was a four-course lunch) I have
come to several conclusions.
First, I am a man. What kind of a
man, is anyone's guess this point.
The truth is that at the root of
everything I am, I am a man.
Second, I am a husband. This,
of course, is the most baffling of
my identity. What it means to be a
husband differs from wife to wife.
Fortunately, for me, I have only
one wife, but even her idea of a
husband changes from one mo-
ment to the next. I am never sure
what she expects of me as a hus-
band. Once I thought I had it all
figured out but someone, I am not
mentioning any names, changed
the rules.
Third, I am a father. As a father,
my role consists of bankrolling the
childhood adventures of my chil-
dren; financing their higher edu-
cation career, hoping they get
married before my money runs
out. To this day, I am not sure if I
made it or not.
Fourth, I am a grandfather.
This is the most well defined role
I have. The great thing about
being a grandfather is, nobody ex-
pects much from us. Our role is
covertly to help our grandchildren
make the lives of their parents as
tempestuous as possible. Revenge
is sweet when laced with jelly-
beans. Sugar highs are a grandfa-
ther's best retaliation.
The most important thing about
my identity quest is, I am a Chris-
tian. This undergirds everything
else I may or may not be. My
Christianity is the foundation
upon which everything else is
I take comfort in the Bible;
"These things have I written unto
you that believe on the name of
the Son of God; that ye may know
that ye have eternal life, and that
ye may believe on the name of the
Son of God." (1 John 5:13 KJV).
When my identity is rooted in
believing in Jesus Christ, every-
thing else in my life falls into

Fall Alfalfa Management
Although there are exceptions,
summer rains have offered some
alfalfa producers with the option
of a 3rd, or even 4th cutting. That
extra cutting of alfalfa doesnt
happen in much of South Dakota
often, but if so, will likely be in
September. The question has been
asked, is that a good idea, or
The answer depends on a few
issues. If the field will not be
saved for hay the following year,
you can obviously cut it any time
without concern. There will be a
slight reduction in nitrogen contri-
bution to the next crop if the top
growth is removed, but if done
when the quality is good, and
there is enough yield to make har-
vesting worthwhile, the value of
the hay crop may easily exceed the
small amount of nitrogen saved by
leaving it.
If you plan to keep the field in
alfalfa for one or more years, the
next question is, do you need the
hay? If not, it is safer for the
health of the stand to leave the
last growth in the field, and do not
graze it. If you decide you need the
hay, the best practice is to wait
until at or after a killing frost to
cut it, and leave 5-6 of stubble to
catch snow and protect the crowns
from cold.
For the best survival of the
stand, attempt to take last sum-
mer cutting by late August or very
early September, and let regrowth
stand in the field (no late cut or
grazing). If you have not fertilized
in the summer, you may want to
topdress any needed phosphorus
and/or potassium in late August or
early September.
What is the risk of cutting in
mid-September? Alfalfa cut in
mid-September will begin to re-
grow following the harvest and
use some of the stored carbohy-
drates, meaning a relatively low
level available when the killing
freeze comes. Reduced levels of
stored carbohydrates can limit
winter survival and inhibit re-
growth in the spring. With a low
level of stored carbohydrates, even
a minor premature spring recov-
ery and freeze-back will severely
stress the plants.

Feed prices trending lower and
feeder cattle prices trending
higher may spark some interest in
retaining ownership of stocker
calves over the winter.
"Feeder cattle futures price and
projections from USDA-ERS send
different signals for different
times. Through the remainder of
2013 futures are above fundamen-
tal projection levels. Thus, there is
an incentive to price feeder cattle
to be sold in the short run," said
Heather Gessner, SDSU Extension
Livestock Business Management
Field Specialist.
By the second quarter of 2014
the projections are above the fu-
tures price by $10 per hundred-
weight. Gessner said these prices,
combined with new crop corn and
hay prices remaining lower than
last year, suggest profit potential
for calves backgrounded through-
out winter. However, she added
that risk management tools should
be considered despite the im-
proved chances for lower feed costs
as the risk of retaining ownership
between fall and spring can be
large in the feeder cattle market.
"During the winter months, par-
ticularly between November and
March, futures have both risen
and fallen by over $10 per hun-
dredweight in the last decade,"
Gessner said.
Producers with calves or feeders
can use put options or Livestock
Risk Protection (LRP) insurance to
cover against a decline in feeder
cattle prices. Gessner pointed out
that such declines occurred from
November to March in 2003, 2005,
2007, 2008 and 2012.
When making the decision on
which of these tools to utilize,
Gessner said to consider the num-
ber of animals you are covering,
the cost of the product, and the
length of time you will be covering
your calves.
"Other price protection tools
such as forward pricing calves for
later delivery either through inter-
net auctions or direct sales to the
feedlot could be considered. The
downside of utilizing these tools
would be that if the price projec-
tions are accurate for the first
quarter of 2014 there may be
money left on the table come deliv-
ery day," she said.
In order to determine which of
these tools will work best, Gessner
said producers first need to deter-
mine their breakeven costs for
three months of feed, as well as
their risk tolerance.
"With futures and projections in
March near the $160 per hundred-
weight range and the budgeted
costs at $200 per head in this mar-
ket scenario, determining your
risk tolerance is up to you," she

August Cattle on Feed report bullish
New field station laboratory grand opening planned
There were 10 million head of
cattle on feed in U.S. feedyards
with greater than 1,000 head ca-
pacities on Aug. 1, 2013, according
to USDA's monthly Cattle on Feed
report released on Aug. 23.
"That is almost 6 percent below
a year ago and below industry ex-
pectations," said Darrell Mark,
Adjunct Professor of Economics at
South Dakota State University.
"Although this is the twelfth con-
secutive month of year-over-year
declines in the on feed inventory,
the Aug. 1 drop likely marks the
beginning of several months of
sharply lower cattle on feed num-
Cattle feeders marketed 2 mil-
lion head of cattle during July, or
about 4.5 percent more than in
July 2012 (Table 1). This increase,
which contributed to the lower
cattle on feed inventory on Aug. 1,
Mark said it was relatively close
to pre-release expectations.
"Because July 2013 had one
more marketing day than July
2012, average daily marketings
this July were almost identical to
last year," he said.
The steady marketings along
with the declining number of cat-
tle on feed has resulted in market-
ings as a percentage of the
number of cattle on feed to in-
crease to 19.3 percent, which
Mark said is up from 17.9 percent
a year ago and the highest mar-
ketings pace yet for 2013.
"Marketings as a percentage of
cattle on feed have generally been
higher this year as a function of
cattle feeders placing more heavy
yearlings on feed and fewer calves,
thus shortening the number of
days on feed that cattle are fed,"
he said.
That trend towards placing pro-
portionally more heavy feeder cat-
tle and fewer lighter cattle on feed
continued in July. Cattle feeders
placed about 665,000 feeder cattle
weighing less than 700 pounds
during July, which was 160,000
head or almost 20 percent less
than last year.
"This year's improved pasture
and range conditions have not
forced early weaning to the extent
that it did for the last two years,
thus lowering the number of
calves being placed in July and
August this year," he said.
Mark added that cattle feeders
placed 1.057 million feeder cattle
weighing more than 700 pounds in
July, down only 40,000 head or 4
percent from last year. Still, total
placements sharply declined in
July. USDA reported that cattle
feeders placed only 1.722 million
head, which was down 10.4 per-
cent compared to last year and
well below industry expectations.
"Of note, July 2012 placements
were down sharply as well. So,
July 2013 placements were down
nearly 20 percent compared to
July 2011 and almost 8 percent
below the 5-year average. In addi-
tion to high feed costs last month
limiting placements this July,
sharp reductions in feeder cattle
imports from Mexico contributed
to about a fifth of the decline in
placements this year," Mark said.
Overall, Mark said the market
reaction to the sharply lower
placements, lower cattle on feed
inventory, and steady average
daily marketings figures was bull-
ish. The numbers provide the
most support for improved fed cat-
tle prices in the November 2013 to
February 2014 timeframe.
"Continued reductions in cattle
on feed numbers could help push
slaughter cattle prices to $130 per
hundred weight or slightly higher
by year's end. However, higher
placements of calves this fall - if
new crop corn prices remain low -
could put more pressure on fed
prices late next spring and early
summer," he said.

Local, research-based informa-
tion is invaluable to propelling
South Dakota's agriculture indus-
try forward. For 106 years cattle
producers have relied on data col-
lected from research conducted at
the SDSU Cottonwood Range &
Livestock Field Station near Philip.
This summer the on-site capabili-
ties were expanded with the addi-
tion of a new laboratory and
multi-purpose facility.
"This new laboratory and multi-
purpose facility is part of the mod-
ernization program for our field
stations," said Daniel Scholl, Direc-
tor of the SD Agriculture Experi-
ment Station. "I'm confident this
laboratory will increase the
amount of research conducted at
this field station."
Sept. 7 the public is invited to
celebrate its rich history and the
addition of a laboratory and multi-
purpose facility during the SDSU
Cottonwood Field Station Labora-
tory Grand Opening & Tri-County
Ag Day. The event begins at 9 a.m.
(MDT) with a trade show, speakers,
breakout sessions, tours and youth
"It's important to educate the
community about the research con-
ducted right here at the Cotton-
wood Field Station so they can take
information they need and utilize it
to make positive, research-based
changes on their own operations,"
said Adele Harty, SDSU Extension
Cow-Calf Field Specialist.
Harty said when she works with
livestock producers she often turns
to recommendations developed
from research conducted at Cotton-
wood Field Station.
"Because Cottonwood provides
us with research conducted in a
similar environment and growing
conditions as the producers I work
with, I'm able to share recommen-
dations that work," Harty said.
New Laboratory expands re-
search opportunities: Home to
many long-term research projects,
like a grazing study which began in
the early 1940s and continues
today; Pat Johnson says the 2013
addition of an on-sight laboratory
facility at the Cottonwood Field
Station will enhance her and other
researcher's efficiency, as well as
expand research possibilities.
"These facilities have vastly in-
creased the scope and quality of the
research for faculty and students
and SDSU Extension program-
ming," said Johnson, a professor of
Range Science who has been con-
ducting research at Cottonwood
since 1986.
She explained that until now
there was not a lab on-site. All sam-
ples had to be sent back to labs on
campus in Brookings.
Ken Olson echoes Johnson. The
SDSU Extension Beef Specialist
says that the efficiencies the new
laboratory provide to him and other
researchers will save time and
allow them to conduct tests too sen-
sitive to send to another lab. "There
are tests, like pH, that you cannot
do unless you are right next to a lab
because levels will change over
time," Olson said.
When working with area ranch-
ers, Olson depends on research
from Cottonwood Field Station. He
is currently involved in research
which looks at feedstuffs producers
can feed to their cattle to help com-
bat the effects of high sulfate water.
This research is among several
studies which will be highlighted
during the Sept. 7 grand opening
and Tri-County Ag Day.
"We worked to create a day that
highlights research and where we
can share recommendations with
producers based on research data,"
Olson said.
