Frederick could be pilot in new model for medicine
By Cole T. Adema NREMT-Paramedic & Frederick Area Ambulance Service Director I grew up in the Frederick area. I consider it my hometown. And I care about its residents. I have lived in a few other towns in the upper Midwest, working with their emergency medical, fire, and rescue responders and soaking up every bit of knowledge I could about how to (and how not to) make an ambulance service work and meet the needs of its customers. Across the country, local volunteer departments (both fire and ambulance) are hurting for active members. Call volume has not decreased, but the workforce certainly has. Even in Frederick, we can remember when there was a healthy roster and always someone available to answer the call. But responders have moved away, gotten older, and had life events change

Cotton candy team whips up sugary goodness
By Cole Hinz FASD Journalism Once again, the Frederick Area Cotton Candy team is ready to whip up some sugary goodness. This year’s sales will start on Dec. 16, at the home basketball game against Langford, and end on Dec. 19, the day before Christmas break. The cotton candy flavors being sold are Sassy Green Apple, Spooky Fruiti Grape, Boo Blue Raspberry, and Silly Nilly Vanilla (Pink). The team is led by Liz Labesky, head of the music department. Profits help pay for decorations, equipment, and other needs for the music department. This year some of the money will go towards new T-shirts for the Cotton Candy Team. They get new shirts approximately every three years. The idea for the Cotton Candy team started in 2004 when the elementary had a circus-themed concert. Ms. Labesky borrowed a cotton candy machine from the Aberdeen Shriners to sell cotton candy during the concert. She realized it was a big hit and thought it would be a good idea to raise money. “Al Layton loaned us the money to buy the machine,” explained Labesky, “so our first year’s profit was to pay off the machine. From then on we have had clear profit other than supplies.” Every year Ms. Labesky hands out applications to those who show interest in joining the team. An applicant must be a high school band and chorus member, and must be passing every class. Benefits of being on the team include volunteer hours, a free shirt, and all the cotton candy you can eat while on duty. Applicants also complete an interview. “I have the juniors and seniors interview the new applicants, but I oversee the process,” said Labesky. “We go over some of the answers on their application, and we ask them when is national cotton candy day.”

“The best part of being on the team is the fun we have while making the cotton candy,” said Hattie Zinter. If you missed the cotton candy sale this month, there will also be a sale in the spring. In case you were wondering, National Cotton Candy Day is Dec. 7.

Oral interp students make it to regionals
By Meghan Conn FASD Journalism Of the three students who started oral interpretation this fall, two made it to the regional competition, with one near-miss in advancing to state. Meghan Conn and Briana Nordine, both juniors, performed in several categories at the regional contest in Webster Nov. 19: Conn participated in the Prose category doing a serious piece, “The Tell Tale Heart” by Edgar Allen Poe. The two also collaborated with a Duet, “The Blueberry Hill Accord” by Deryl Watson. Conn placed third but was unable to participate in the state competition. Two other contestants tied for second place, and only three people can advance. Conn became the alternate. Nordine and Conn placed fifth in their division with their Duet but did not move forward from the competition. At the district competition at Northern State University on Nov. 6, Conn and Nordine performed the pieces that advanced to regionals, and Nordine also was a part of the Poetry division, performing “A Nightmare Before Christmas” by Tim Burton. Devin Flinn, whose prepared piece was a compilation of excerpts from “Ant Farm,” did not perform at districts because of family matters. All three of the students had performed at a pre-district competition at NSU on Oct. 19. None of the contestants advanced to finals, but it was a good day. Tamie Nickelson coached the students this year. This year’s Oral Interp Team had a good run and would like to see more participants in future years.

Frederick area senior citizens invited to attend gatherings
By Shirley Anderson Frederick Senior Citizens President The Frederick Area Senior Citizens organization meets monthly for fun, fellowship and food. The meetings are usually the fourth Tuesday of each month, except for special dinners in June, November and December. A typical meeting starts at 1:30 p.m. with a short business meeting. At 2 p.m., we’re generally ready to play some fun game or enjoy a guest speaker or music from Rae and the Ranch Hands or the Sunshine Singers. At 3 p.m., we’re ready for a delicious lunch, either provided by individual members or by potluck. We have special dinners in June (our picnic month), in November (our traditional Thanksgiving dinner) and in December (our Christmas dinner). We’re grateful to Frederick Forward for their generosity in covering the cost of the entrees at Thanksgiving and Christmas this year. Membership fees are $5 per person for the year. Also, members are asked to host or co-host (provide the light lunch) one meeting a year. By tradition, the minimum age for membership is 55—but we don’t ask for ID. We have 14 members at the present and would love to double that. We very much enjoy each other, especially during the competition in games and regular bingo with really nice prizes. Come on over and visit in January, and see if you’d like to become a regular member.

Junior field teachers help, learn in classrooms
By Hattie Zinter FASD Journalism Four junior field teachers are getting their second dose of classroom experience in Frederick this fall. “Junior field students are assigned to a cooperating teacher who guides them in writing goals, lesson planning, and then the presenting of that lesson for the evaluation by a university supervisor,” explained Superintendent Bev Myer. “Once a student has successfully accomplished these experiences, he/she is admitted into the professional semester that includes student teaching.” Charlie Sersen is doing his junior field teaching under fifth-grade teacher Jessica Ringgenberg. Sersen enjoys disk golf, playing guitar while being the worship leader at CICS as well as a peer minister on Charlie Sersen campus, drumming, singing, and hiking and backpacking. Sersen graduated high school from Lander Valley High School in Wyoming and is currently majoring in elementary education at NSU with a minor in early childhood. “I’m enjoying this experience a lot, as it gives me a chance to use what I’ve been learning in my methods classes,” Sersen said. “It’s been enlightening having Mrs. Ringgenberg as my cooperating teacher. She has created a wonderful learning environment for her students here at Frederick Elementary.” Also doing their field work in fifth grade is Angela Koeck of Miller, S.D. Koeck’s interests include reading, baking, watching sports, visiting family and friends, going on road trips, and working with children. Koeck graduated from Miller High School and is now majoring in elementary Angela Koeck education at NSU. Koeck said this is her second experience in the field. “My first was my sophomore field experience, which I completed in my hometown,” Koeck said. “I am really enjoying my junior field. Mrs. Ringgenberg is a fantastic teacher, and her class is super fun. I am learning many important things that will assist me when I become a teacher.” Down the hallway in the second-grade classroom is junior field teacher Michyl Miller of Aberdeen. Miller enjoys reading, doing anything outside, and being with family and friends. Miller is attending NSU with a Michyl Miller major in elementary education and a minor in early childhood and reading. She is also on the NSU swim team and coaches the Aberdeen swim club, so she says most of her time is spent in a pool. “This is not my first field position,” Miller said. “I have had the opportunity to do a nineweek internship with a kindergarten teacher and did my sophomore field experience with a fourth-grade teacher in Beresford, South Dakota. I love working in Frederick! Mrs. Wallien and the second-graders have been such a blessing. Mrs. (Colleen) Wallien has been such a great help and inspiration. The students are super fun and full of excitement.” Miller said the experience at Frederick has made her want to teach in a smaller school. “I love how close the staff and students are. The smaller class sizes are also a huge benefit,” Miller said. Chelsey Poeppel is doing her experience in Sarah Sumption’s high school science classes. Poeppel graduated from Gettysburg, S.D., and is now graduating from NSU with a bachelor of science degree in Chelsey Poeppel biology with a biotech certification. Poeppel’s interests are working on the family farm, spending time with family and friends, playing intramural sports, knitting, and cooking. Poeppel said she would rather teach in a rural area in part because of the close-knit relationship between students and teachers. “However, I am not opposed to teach in an urban area,” Poeppel said, “because my main goal as a teacher is to invest in young minds and help shape them in ways that will prepare them for their futures and help them develop techniques on how to reach their goals and success whether it be in the classroom or in life no matter the school setting.” She also commented, “Mrs. Sumption, my cooperating teacher, is an effective teacher that I am learning tremendous teaching expertise from. From this experience, I will take all the necessary tools I have gained to become an effective teacher. I am thankful for the opportunity to experience my junior field placement here at Frederick.”

Titans experience disappointing end to stellar season
FASD Journalism The details of the state 9A championship game don’t look much better for the Titans in retrospect: Potter County made the plays, and Leola-Frederick did not. A poor start set the tone for the Nov. 14 game, held at the Dakota Dome in Vermillion. Potter County scored on their first play from scrimmage, and when the Titans received the kickoff, they promptly fumbled on their second play from scrimmage. Potter County found themselves with a 25-point lead with 7:58 remaining in the first quarter. The Titans scored 22 points in the second quarter via two touchdown passes from Dane Campbell to Logan Weisser (11 yards) and Derrick Podoll (22 yards) with a third score coming by a Dane Campbell 6-yard touchdown run. LeolaFrederick converted the twopoint conversion on two of those scores. At halftime, LeolaFrederick trailed 38-22. This was as close as the Titans got, as the second half saw Potter County score 22 unanswered points. “We went into halftime with the momentum and were not able to regain that in the second half,” coach Marty Morlock said. Morlock said the different between the Titans’ earlier game against Potter County and their meeting in the Dakota Dome was that in the dome, “Potter County made the plays.” “In our first meeting, we came up with the defensive stops when needed,” Morlock said. “Going into this game I knew we would be able to pass on them and mix in a little run to keep them honest. We also knew the Potter County’s passing game was much improved since our last meeting. The timing routes as well as their blocking scheme improved.” Quarterback Chayce Hall played a key role in Potter County’s victory, according to Morlock. “In the first game Hall never got a chance to set his feet, and a lot of his throws were out of the reach of his intended receivers,” Morlock said. “At the dome, he was able to get out of the pocket, set his feet and hit his guy in stride.” Both teams ended with records of 11-1, and both teams’ only loss came when they faced one another.

HEALTH: Workers could provide several services
Continued from front page

are putting in hours to become certified, but there is a common thread between each one of these people—they all have a full-time job. If you have considered becoming an EMT or a firefighter but declined because you were “too busy,” please know that every one of those who have stepped up to the plate is just as busy as you. Different busy, perhaps, but busy all the same. That aside, the difficulty in staffing the ambulance with volunteers from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays remains. It isn’t that these folks (including myself) don’t want to be available 24/7 for ambulance and fire calls, but the rent keeps coming due and groceries aren’t free.
Aging at home a difficult goal Let’s pause that discussion for a moment and move to another challenge facing Frederick and the surrounding townships. Many small communities have access to a clinic, an assisted living facility, a nursing home, or any combination of the three. We do not have this luxury. Understandably, for financial or personal reasons, many of our parents, aunts, uncles, and grandparents want to stay living at home as they age. And who wouldn’t? And we don’t like the idea of shipping them off to the “home” any more than they do. Most of the ambulance calls in and around Frederick are to assist the elderly. But what if we could help prevent illness and injury and equip our loved ones to keep living healthy and happy lives at home? Better yet, what if there was one potential solution to both of these troubles?

Community paramedicine is an emerging role in rural health care that centers on prevention and keeping citizens, or clients, healthy at home. In turn, this decreases the number of emergency transports to the hospital.
A new strategy: community paramedicine Enter the developing community paramedicine model. Community paramedicine is an emerging role in rural health care that centers on prevention and keeping citizens, or clients, healthy at home. In turn, this decreases the number of emergency transports to the hospital. It fills the gaps between public health and home health, and with the evolving government monster of health care regulation, reimbursement, and insurance, coupled with the potential shortage of primary care providers looming on the horizon, there is certainly a need. The needs of each community will be different, but community paramedics could provide services such as immunization, wound care, routine follow-up after recent hospitalization or surgery, simple sutures, chemical dependency aid, and care for the chronically ill. The list could also include screening, management and referral for hypertension, diabetes, depression, mediation compliance, nutrition, and fall risk. In Frederick and the surrounding townships, one properly trained paramedic and one properly trained EMT could make house calls focusing on the items listed above and other needs during the work week

and simultaneously be on call and ready for immediate response to 911 calls. Volunteers would sign up for shifts and respond to 911 calls at night and on weekends, when they are not otherwise employed. The Frederick Area Ambulance Service medical director wholeheartedly supports this idea, but the real question is do you support it. Will the population in Frederick and the surrounding townships prioritize the need and get behind a proposal to invest in a community paramedicine program? This will be a long road, but we have a plan for some first steps with the proper community backing. These steps include incorporating the ambulance service and fire department together and voting to form a taxing district (as many surrounding departments have done). Everyone in the community must work together. A public meeting is planned for 5:30 p.m. Monday, Jan. 13, 2014, to discuss this and related issues. Please think about your family, friends, and neighbors, talk with them, ask questions, seek answers, and then come to the meeting so we can tackle the issue as a united community. Call or e-mail Cole Adema with questions or feedback: (605) 252-0317 or editorsnotebook@nvc.net.

Teen issues are focus of school presentation
By Katie Goehring FASD Journalism Frederick Area students experienced another production by Camfel Productions Dec. 19. Camfel Productions is a company offering productions especially for school districts that Frederick Area, partnering with Ellendale, has hired for several years. These programs raise awareness and allow an outside source to bring up a wide range of topics that are very common for middle and high school students, such as bullying, dating, home life issues, college or career and many more. The productions are designed to get students to think about the choices they make and what they can do or who they can turn to if they are in difficult situations. “I do feel that the more exposure that you can bring on some of these topics the better for students,” said Principal Justin Downes. “The more conversations that are able to be had, the easier it can be for kids to learn how to correctly deal with any situation that they are in.”
