The Jackson County Commis-
sioners held their regular monthly
meeting on Monday, April 9, with
all commissioners in attendance.
Mental illness billings and
health care estimation notices were
reviewed and all requests for pay-
ments were denied.
Jackson County States Attorney
Dan Van Gorp is revising the letter
that is sent to the provider when
the billings are denied.
County Auditor Vicki Wilson
presented the financial statement.
A motion carried to transfer $3,000
into the E911 Fund and approve
the financial statement.
A tax comparison for 2010 and
2011 taxes was presented showing
the tax levies and property valua-
tion.
Curt Reiter gave a presentation
regarding electronic imaging for
the Register of Deeds office. All doc-
uments need to be scanned and Re-
iter will rent the scanners to the
county, which will vary in price ac-
cording to the size of the scanner.
Reiter stated that Register of
Deeds Mitzi Mitchell will be able to
scan the small documents, but he
would do the larger plats and also
change the blueprint documents to
a white back ground with black
type, so theyre easier to read. A
motion carried to enter into a con-
tract with Curt Reiter for imaging
services.
Emergency Manager Jackie Stil-
well stated that Jackson County
had been awarded a Hazardous
Mitigation Grant and accepting the
grant was approved.
Bills were reviewed and all were
approved as presented, except
billings from Clinical Laboratory
and Community Health Center of
the Black Hills were denied.
Fuel bids were opened and re-
viewed. A motion carried to accept
the bids from Midwest Coop for
bulk unleaded gas, #1 and #2 bulk
diesel and propane. An additional
motion carried to accept the bid
from Discount Fuel for unleaded
gas, #1 and #2 diesel at the pumps
for the current daily pump price.
The commissioners approved for
the treasurer, auditor and register
of deeds to attend the spring work-
shop for elected officials on May 9-
11 in Pierre.
Highway Superintendent Mitch
Olney updated the commissioners
on road maintenance being done.
Currently they are completeling
some work in the northern part of
the county and plans include to do
some on the road leading to the
Breck residence and move to the
southern part of the county.
He stated that the push cat is
being repaired in Rapid City and a
demonstration of a mulcher is
being scheduled to be held in late
April.
Olney presented quotes on
2,000 - 2,500 watt generators. After
discussion, it was determined that
a larger generator would be more
beneficial to the county.
Olney made contact with
Hogens Hardware and the pur-
chase of a 9,000 watt generator in
the amount of $769.00.
Prior to purchasing a generator,
the county had been using a gener-
ator owned by Olney. In exchange
for the use of his generator, the
commissioners declared four old
bridge planks surplus and traded
them to Olney as compensation for
the use of his generator.
Olney questioned about adding
a dove tail to the flat bed trailer.
Earlier it was agreed once the sur-
plused metal beams had been sold,
those funds would be used to cover
the expense of the dove tail. Earlier
quotes for the dove tail were $3,500
to $3,800. The commissioners
asked Olney to obtain a current
price qoute.
Olney presented a bill from T.F.
Luke & Sons for the crushing and
screening that has been completed
at the Kennedy pit. Van Gorp re-
viewed the bill and contract and
stated that the commissioners
could approve to pay the bill or
wait until the project was com-
pleted, either decision was accept-
able without breeching the
contract. A motion carried to deny
the billing and to have Van Gorp
draft a letter to Luke with their de-
cision.
A motion carried to go into exec-
utive session at 2:37 p.m. for per-
sonnel matters. They returned to
open session at 3:17 p.m., with no
action taken.
Commissioner Ronnie Twiss
said that he had contacted Ken
Barlett for an estimate on repairs
that need to be done at the Interior
shop.
Olney stated that the road de-
partment should receive four dif-
ferent radios. Discussion was held
on the possiblity of upgrading the
repeater or if it would need to be re-
placed.
Jackson County Sheriff Ray
Clements, Jr. presented a bill from
the jail in Winner.
The commissioners then entered
into executive session at 3:30 p.m.
with Clements present. At 3:47
p.m. they returned to open session,
with no action taken.
Discussion was held on liability
if the county would assist at a fire
to put in a fire line. Wilson will
check with the insurance company
prior to the next meeting.
With no other business the
meeting adjourned. The next regu-
lar meeting will be held on May 14
at 9:00 a.m.
Commissioners proceed with electronic imagining for Register
of Deeds office, deny billing for gravel screening and crushing
The Jackson County Commis-
sioner held a special meeting on
Wednesday, April 11 at 2:00 p.m. in
conjunction with the County Board
of Equalization meeting.
No appeals were submitted con-
testing values, although owner oc-
cupied status was added to one
residence.
Director of Equalization Brad
Stone reported that when soil sam-
ples were updated, the tax exempt
status was removed from a piece of
property owned by the county.
A tax exempt status was re-
quested by Evergreen Childrens
Home.
The commissioners approved to
both adding the tax exempt status
for both properties.
At 3:17 p.m. the commissioners
entered into executive session for
personnel matters. They returned
to open session at 4:27 p.m. with no
action taken.
The burn ban resolution that
was adopted at a previous meeting
was discussed.
An addendum was approved and
added to the resolution reads as fol-
lows.
It is further resolved, that the
ban on open burning does not apply
to (1) those areas falling within the
boundaries of any permitted com-
mercial, state, or federal camp-
ground; (2) burn barrels, grate
covered outdoor fireplaces, charcoal
and liquid fuel grills, and (3) a con-
tained fire used to heat irons for
branding purposes.
It is further resolved, that the
ban on open burning shall be in ef-
fect during any period of time that
the fire danger, as determined by
use of the South Dakota grassland
fire danger index published by the
National Weather Service, has
reached the very high or extreme
category in Pennington County.
The ban on open burning shall au-
tomatically be suspended during
any time period that the fire dan-
ger falls below the very high cate-
gory in Jackson County.
Highway Superintendent Mitch
Olney informed the commissioners
that a quote to repair the push cat
was received. The equalizer bar
needs to be replaced and it is esti-
mated to be approximately $7,000
for total repairs. A motion carried
to approve the repairs.
Olney also requested permission
to purchase more culverts, which
was approved.
A bill from Regional Health Ref-
erence Laboratory was reviewed
and denied in the amount of $375.
County Auditor Vicki Wilson
stated that an organization has
submitted an application for a spe-
cial events license for malt bever-
age. Since the permit does not need
to be submitted to the state, the
county needs to set the application
fee. Following discussion, motion
carried to set the fee at $25 per day.
With no further business, the
meeting adjourned.
County commissioners make changes to burn ban
tive for a total of at least 60 min-
utes per day during five or more of
the past seven days

days
24 percent of currently sexu-
ally active students, defined as
those whove had sexual inter-
course during the past three
months, drank alcohol or used
drugs before their last sexual inter-
course.
Studies have proven that physi-
cally and emotionally healthy stu-
dents will perform better in the
classroom and enjoy continued suc-
cess throughout their lives.
A comprehensive school health
program is a key component in re-

The 2011 South Dakota Youth
Risk Behavior Survey Report has
been released.
Administered every other year,
the Youth Risk Behavior Survey is
a questionnaire that assesses the
six priority health-risk behaviors
that result in the greatest amount
of morbidity, mortality and social
problems among youth.
About 1,800 students in grades
9-12 at randomly selected public,
private and Bureau of Indian Edu-
cation schools participated in the
survey.
Key indicators included in the
report are outlined below:
27 percent of students were
bullied on school property in the
past 12 months
20 percent had been bullied
electronically during the past 12
months
18 percent seriously considered
attempting suicide in the past 12
months
49 percent were physically ac-

The Kadoka Area School Board
held their regular monthly meeting
on Wednesday, April 11 at 7:00 p.m.
The agenda, financial report,
bills and minutes from the March
12 and 28 meetings were approved.
Within the superintendents re-
port, Jamie Hermann stated that
the school improvement plan for
each attendance center in the dis-
trict is complete and has been sub-
mitted to the SD Department of
Education, as required by Title 1.
DakotaStep testing is near com-
pletion and due into the SD Dept.
of Education by April 20.
Section one of the Indian Educa-
tion requirement has been com-
pleted and there will be a small
increase in the amount allocated to
the district.
In previous years these funds
have been used to provide a bus
monitor and instructional aide po-
sitions. With these funds, a video
surveillance system will be in-
stalled on the Wanblee and Interior
buses. It is being considered to use
the remaining fund balance to sup-
ply students with second portions
for no charge at lunch.
The budget process for the 2012-
2013 school year has began.
If the district qualifies as a heav-
ily impacted district, additional
funding would be available through
Impact Aid. There are several cri-
terias that must be met to receive
this status, including the creation
of a pension fund through the levy
collection process. The levy for this
fund would be set at $0.30 per
thousand, but the district would
decrease the capital outlay fund
levy by $0.30, so the tax base would
not been increased.
If the district would receive the
distinction of heavily impacted, the
district would receive approxi-
mately an additional one million
dollars in funding.
Elementary Principal Roger
Jensen gave an update on activities
for the remainder of the school year
including field trip and music pro-
gram dates.
Jensen stated that the Response
to Intervention (RtI)assessements
for grades K-5 have been completed
and there will be an RtI conference
in July at Chamberlain.
Jensen also presented a staff
training schedule for teachers to
attend to help prepare them for the
common core testing that will be
implemented in 2014.
Secondary Principal Tim Hage-
dorn stated that the handbook is in
the process of being updated and
changes will be presented at the
next board meeting.
The class schedule for the 2012-
2013 school year is near complete
and student pre-registration will
be done next week.
The buildings and ground com-
mittee stated that the specification
for the interior repairs on the Great
Hall have been received, but the
exterior specifications have not.
Hermann stated that areas of
sheetrock, insulation and some
windows will be replaced.
The policy committee reviewed
corporal punishment and the sex-
ual harassment section of the pol-
icy book and proposed a policy
change that addresses the issues if
board members excuse themselves
or abstain from voting due to a con-
flict of interest and there is not a
quorum casting a vote, then the
passage of the motion will be deter-
mined by majority of the remaining
board members.
The board then entered into ex-
ecutive session at 7:30 p.m. with
Hagedorn and a few citizens who
were in attendance, for the purpose
of student matters. The board re-
turned to open session at 8:40 p.m.
with no action taken.
Second reading was held on the
weather or emergency calendar
make up policy and the school
sponsored extra curricular activi-
ties policy, which were both ap-
proved for adoption.
Review and canvassing of the
votes from the school board election
that was held on April 10 was con-
ducted. The election results were
certified as Mark Williams 238
votes, Jim Brown 187 votes, Ross
Block 245 votes, and Mark DeVries
98 votes.
At 9:03 p.m. the board entered
into executive session for personnel
matters and returned to open ses-
sion at 9:38 p.m.
A motion was made and failed to
renew the contract to Roger Jensen
for the elementary principal posi-
tion for the 2012-2013 school term.
A motion was approved to renew
the contract to Tim Hagedorn for
the secondary principal position for
the 2012-2013 school term.
Support staff contracts were ap-
proved to be offered as recom-
mended by the negotiations
committee.
Advertising for lunch services at
the Midland School for the 2012-
2013 was approved and was the
final action item of the meeting.
The board then entered into ex-
ecutive session at 9:41 p.m. for ad-
ministrative staff contract
negotiations. They returned to
open session at 11:15, with no ac-
tion taken, and the meeting was
adjourned.
The next regular board meeting
will be held on Wednesday, May 9
at 7 p.m. at the Kadoka School.
School board adopts policies for weather or emergency make
up days, sponsoring extra curricular coop activities
Piping in sprinkler system

Work began on the sprinkler
system at the Kadoka Nursing
Home on Tuesday, April 10. A two-
member crew has turned into four
guys from Complete Contracting
Solutions.
Workers are boring through the
cement walls and placing pipe
along the ceiling. Each room will
have three sprinkler heads in-
stalled.
Its dusty, noisy and you need
ear plugs, said Ruby Sanftner.
Once completed there will be a
suspended ceiling put in and the
lights will be lowered.
Work will also continue in the
clinic, WIC office and the base-
ment.
Can you do it in 258 seconds? she
asked.
Its a frenzied attack done by a
crazy guy or a drunk guy. In this
case its a drunk guy, Flander
added.
Thomas Petersen took the wit-
ness stand in his own defense Mon-
day morning, claiming he blacked
out after his wife threatened him
with a knife and scratched his face
deeply enough to draw blood.
Petersen admitted flashes of
memory and stabbing at his wife
but denied he meant to kill or had
any recollection of causing Renee
Petersens fatal wounds. He
vaguely recalled picking up three
knives.
Whats the next thing you re-
member? Flander asked.
Standing over her next to the
front door, Petersen said.
Hammerand, during cross-ex-
amination, focused on intricacies
that Petersen testified he could re-
member on the day Renee Petersen
died.
If you did not have specific in-
tent to kill, why did you stab her
129 times? Hammerand asked.
I dont recall, Petersen said.
Why did you use three separate
knives?
I dont have an answer to that
question, Petersen said.
During his closing remarks,
Hammerand rejected the idea that
Petersen blacked out.
Isnt it interesting, Ham-
merand said. He can remember
Renees evil look ... but right after
that, when the attack starts, the
memory starts to go.

Jurors needed only about 30
minutes to convict Thomas Pe-
tersen on April 16, 2012.
Prosecutor Doug Hammerand
successfully argued that using
three knives to inflict 129 cut or
stab wounds demonstrated malice,
deliberation, premeditation and
specific intent to kill beyond a rea-
sonable doubt.
Folks, its that easy. Use your
common sense, Hammerand told
jurors during his closing statement.
Judy Renee Petersen, 36, died on
June 4, 2011. Her husband, now a
convicted murderer, will be sen-
tenced on the one-year anniversary
of her death. He will serve life in
prison with no chance for parole.
Petersen is due back in Butler
County District Court at 2 p.m.
June 4.
Edwin Case of Dallas, Texas,
Renee Petersens brother, spoke for
the family after the verdict came
back about 4 p.m. Monday.
The ordeal of the five-day trial
had been very agonizing, Case
said, and he thanked prosecutors,
investigators and others who had
shown support along the way.
The speed with which jurors
worked was gratifying, Case added,
and the conclusion of Petersens
guilt was therefore inescapable.
It was helpful. A jury finding a
verdict that quickly makes it very
obvious, Case said.
Defense attorney Susan Flander
tried to argue the viciousness of the
attack itself proved Petersen was
intoxicated and unable to form spe-
cific intent to kill.
During her closing remarks,
Flander asked jurors to imagine
the crime and how long the slash-
ing and cutting would take.
Can you do it in 129 seconds?
Jury takes 30 minutes to find Thomas
Petersen guilty of wife's death

Many Christians struggle to discipline themselves
in the area of self-gratification. There are so many
things we want right now. And to make matters worse,
we usually have the ability to follow through on our de-
sires. That's what the entire credit card industry is all about: have it now; pay later.
But finances aren't the only area where we get into trouble. Some people are in a hurry to be married
and therefore make an unwise choice regarding a mate. Others don't even see marriage as necessary and
opt for premarital sex instead of waiting for the right person. Or maybe you're just in a hurry to become
successful and well-respected in your career, never giving any thought to whether your pursuit aligns
with God's plans for your life.
One reason the Lord wants us to wait is to protect us from our own self-destructive ways. Those who
can't say no to their own desires end up enslaved to them. God wants us to be mature believers who have
the character and self-restraint to wait for Him to provide in His perfect time. Because the heavenly Fa-
ther is omniscient, He alone knows what's best. You can trust that if He asks you to wait, He has some-
thing more wonderful in mind than you could ever provide for yourself.
Does anything seem to have a power over you? If so, it may be an area that requires the practice of
self-restraint. Yield to the Lord, and submit your desires to Him. Then, begin saying no to temptations
as you wait for God to reveal His will for your life.

A national volunteer network of
precipitation observers, or CoCo-
RaHS (Community Collaborative
Rain Hail & Snow Network) is
looking for more volunteers to
track precipitation events across
South Dakota reported State Cli-
matologist, Dennis Todey, during a
recent iGrow Radio Network inter-
view.
"These are everyday people who
enjoy measuring precipitation and
are willing to report that on the in-
ternet," he says, of the volunteers
who measure and report after rain,
hail and snow events.
Despite today's automated technol-
ogy, Todey believes local reporting
is still essential in tracking the
variability of rainfall.
"It's a huge benefit to us to have
people across the state who moni-
tor precipitation. The biggest vari-
ability in weather across the state
is how precipitation varies. Even
with all the technology we have, we
really need to have on-ground
measurements all across the state
to tell us what is really happening
on the ground," he said. "Where we
have heavy rain events, like flood
events, the National Weather Serv-
ice has issued flash flood warnings
based on people's reports on how
much rain fall there was," he said.
Todey says volunteer reports can
also be useful in documenting
drought conditions.
"If people can tell us how many
days they've gone without rainfall,
it helps us document drought con-
ditions and better support disaster
declaration because of drought," he
said.
Volunteers willing to be part of
the CoCoRaHS network must be
willing to take daily precipitation
readings between 6 a.m. and 9 a.m.
and report the events on-line. They
are asked to use a standard 4-inch
diameter rain gauge and will re-
ceive a small bit of training.
A March Madness recruiting
campaign is now underway. To
learn more visit www.cocorahs.org

2011 Youth Risk
Behavior Survey
continued from front page
The six priority health-risk be-
haviors include: behaviors that
contribute to unintentional injuries
and violence; tobacco use; alcohol
and other drug use; sexual behav-
iors that contribute to unintended
pregnancy and sexually transmit-
ted diseases (STDs), including
human immunodeficiency virus
(HIV) infection; unhealthy dietary
behaviors; and physical inactivity.
The SD Youth Risk Behavior
Survey is funded by the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention,
and Coordinated School Health,
which is a collaboration between
the state departments of Education
and Health.

Warner said.
Warner and other officers
trained their weapons on the man
they believed was the subject of an
Amber Alert issued in Iowa. A
South Dakota trooper was using an
assault rifle, and Warner had a
shotgun, according to the park
ranger.
I fired the first round of my
shotgun, Warner testified, and
racked the second shell.
Warner said Petersen made sev-
eral erratic statements and cau-
tioned the officer not to employ his
Taser.
He said something to the effect
of my day was going to go very
badly, or end very badly, Warner
said.
Later parts of the incident were
captured on video, recorded by a
dashboard camera mounted in
Trooper Clay Kartaks patrol car.
Kartak is a member of the South
Dakota State Highway Patrol and
joined the high-speed pursuit.
On the video, jurors saw Pe-
tersens burning pickup and then a
tense standoff that lasted about 20
minutes.
Stop right there, Kartak called
to another officer on the video.
Thats the crazy guy.
Petersen walked several hun-
dred yards, concealing a black item
in a pocket as he walked along the
highway.
He does have something in his
hand. We do not know what it is,
Kartak reported at one point.
Kartak admitted being amped
up during what he described as a
stressful situation. As officers jock-
eyed for position, closing in as Pe-
tersen retreated and backing off as
he advanced, Kartaks frustration
seemed to show.
Petersen swore repeatedly and
threatened the officers.
My name is ___ ___, he yelled.
I want this guy to shoot me,
Petersen added later, pointing at
an officer holding what looked like
a shotgun.
In cross examining Kartak, de-
fense attorney Susan Flander di-
rected attention to another of her
clients comments.
He said his wife was trying to
take his balls off with a paring
knife. Is that correct? Flander
asked the trooper.
Yes, he said.
The video concluded when a of-
ficer fired his Taser. As Petersen
went down in a ditch, at least nine
law enforcement officials moved in
quickly to subdue him and take
him into custody.

Aided by technology, jurors on
Thursday heard from the late
Renee Judy Petersen and her hus-
band, Thomas Petersen, the man
accused of murdering her, at the
second day of trail, April 12, 2012.
He was making threats against
himself and me, Renee Petersen
texted.
The message went to Thomas
Petersens sister, Kelly Svebek,
about two months before a fatal
stabbing claimed Renee Petersens
life.
Thomas Petersen also hinted
at killing himself if he did not win
full custody of his children as the
couple headed for divorce, accord-
ing to Renee Petersens texts.
He also planned on attending a
funeral in two weeks, and it wasnt
his.
Authorities allege Petersen
stabbed and cut his wife more than
120 times on June 4, 2011. He al-
legedly used three knives in the at-
tack.
Renee Petersens son, Cody
George, discovered her body in the
familys home in Greene.
Petersen, however, allegedly fled
the scene with the couples 2-year-
old son.
Jurors on Thursday learned how
close Petersen came to losing his
own life during a confrontation
June 5, 2011.
Bryan Warner, a federal park
law enforcement officer in June
2011, testified about the pursuit in
South Dakota that ultimately led
to Petersens arrest.
During the chase, Warner said
he topped 100 mph in his patrol ve-
hicle and watched as Petersen
forced a sheriff s patrol car off a
road.
Warner testified seeing Petersen
eject his 2-year-old son from his
pickup after stopping briefly dur-
ing the pursuit.
I saw the defendant throw
something out of the door. At the
time I couldnt comprehend was it
was, Warner said.
I realized it was the child that
we were looking for, as a result of
an Amber Alert, he added.
Officials were able to narrow
their search for Petersen because
he used a credit card in South
Dakota. Warner was just a few
miles away and deduced Petersens
likely route.
There were only a couple of
ways for the individual to go,
Warner said.
While being taken into custody,
Petersen talked about hoping for a
cliff to drive off, according to
Warner. He also suggested he
wanted officers to shoot him.
He said he wished one of the of-
ficers had an itchy trigger finger,
SD officers officers testify in
Petersen trial on chase dangers
the fatal confrontation, Petersen
blacked out, according to Flanders
version of events.
The next thing he knows, he
wakes up and he saw a horrific
sight, Flander told jurors. His
only thought was to get his 2-year-
old son out of there.
Law enforcement officials appre-
hended Petersen in South Dakota.
He had the couples youngest child
with him, according to numerous
sources.
Hammerand anticipated the
question of specific intent and in-
toxication, which from the attor-
neys opening statements appears a
central issue in Petersens case.
His specific intent when he
grabbed the first knife, the second
knife and the third knife was to kill
Renee Petersen, Hammerand
said.
Jurors also heard from Beverly
Truax, a dispatcher for Butler
County who first spoke to Renee
Petersens son, Cody George. Ham-
merand also played a recording of
the 911 call from June 4, 2011. On
it, George frantically pleads for
emergency crews to hurry.
I need them here now, the boy
said.
Hang in there, man. I know it
seems like forever, a male dis-
patcher responded.
Momma, wake up, George said
later, adding theres no pulse or
anything.
Just keep pumping, man, the
dispatcher said.
Many in the courtroom audi-
ence, including Renee Petersens
mother, wept as the six-minute
recording played.
Six men and six women will de-
termine Petersens guilt or inno-
cence. Defense attorneys,
prosecutors and the court picked
the group from a field of 92 poten-
tial candidates.
The process began at 9 a.m.
Tuesday and concluded when those
selected took an oath at 11:30 a.m.
Wednesday. The court also selected
two alternates a man and a
woman.
Petersen appeared comfortable
during the first two days of his
trial. He actively participated with
his defense team, Flander and An-
nette Boehlje, as they eliminated
potential jurors Wednesday morn-
ing.
At one point, Petersen smiled
with others in the courtroom when
Flander asked if any potential
juror had ever been described as
stubborn or willful by anyone
other than their spouse.

Prosecutor Doug Hammerand
opened his case against Thomas
Petersen on Wednesday, April 11
with compelling and emotional ev-
idence, including testimony from
an 18-year-old Eagle Scout.
Cody George was only 17, how-
ever, when he discovered his
mothers bloody body in the fam-
ilys home in Greene and attempted
CPR.
Jurors learned Georges mother,
Judy Renee Petersen, 36, suffered
multiple injuries to her face, neck,
head, chest and arms.
If you count every cut and stab
wound, theres 129, Hammerand
said.
Thomas Petersen, Judy Renee
Petersens husband and Georges
stepfather, is on trial on a charge of
first-degree murder. If convicted,
he faces life in prison with no
chance for parole.
Petersen attacked his wife with
three knives, Hammerand told ju-
rors during his opening remarks.
One was a filet knife, the second
was a chef s knife and the third
was described as short. Two of the
knives blades bent during the as-
sault, according to Hammerand.
This case is not a whodunit, he
added.
The fatal confrontation capped a
downward spiral in the couples re-
lationship. They had moved from
Texas several years earlier because
both liked the idea of living in Iowa
and ultimately bought a home in
Greene.
Petersen worked as a Schwan
delivery man. Renee Petersen was
employed by a health clinic. But
money was a problem, and eventu-
ally the van Renee Petersen drove
was repossessed.
In June of last year, the mar-
riage between Thomas and Renee
Petersen was over, Hammerand
said.
Petersen promised a family
member he would make the divorce
as difficult as possible for his wife
and make her life miserable, ac-
cording to Hammerand.
Defense attorney Susan Flander
conceded the point, even suggest-
ing jurors would indeed find her
client guilty, although not of first-
degree murder. She noted Pe-
tersens history with mental health
issues and what she described as a
serious drinking problem.
This is the action of a man
under the influence of alcohol,
Flander said during her opening
statement.
That, she said, means Petersen
could not form specific intent to
kill. According to Flander, jurors
must then conclude Petersen is
guilty of a no more than second-de-
gree murder.
Renee Petersen got close to her
husband during an argument and
may have brandished something
silver in Petersens direction, ac-
cording to Flander.
He felt something against his
testicles and Renee said something
about cutting them off and wak-
ing up without them, Flander
said.
Because he had been drinking
all through the day leading up to
Jury selected, compelling testimony
delivered in Petersen murder trial

Now that weve had April show-
ers, we can probably expect May
flowers. We can also probably ex-
pect the onset of garden fever and
with a vengeance. This latter
dreadful condition is when people,
in the throes of optimism, plant a
much bigger garden then they
need or can reasonably expect to
take care of. I speak from experi-
ence.
In my younger years, I often
plowed up a huge bit of ground
with a tractor and then set to
planting everything under the sun
in great quantity. A normal garden
would usually include radishes,
leaf lettuce, peas, beans, beets,
carrots, tomatoes, cucumbers,
onions, corn, potatoes, squash and
anything else that looked interest-
ing. This was all fine and good
until summer and reality took
their toll. A large garden, as you
know, will require a whole lot of
weeding and, in this arid climate,
watering. If you have much else to
do in life, you may not be able to
keep things under control long
enough to get much of a harvest.
As a result, Ive had to rational-
ize. First off, many vegetables
taste about as good when you pur-
chase them as when you grow
them. They may even be cheaper
if you consider your time worth
anything. Take green beans for in-
stance. You can buy them quite
reasonably in either frozen or
canned form. Ive never canned
any that Ive raised since those
have been known to easily go bad
and poison your entire family. We
have frozen a lot of them, though,
and I cant really tell much differ-
ence between home-grown and
purchased. Incidentally, my mom
froze a lot of beans Id raised, but
she thought you should blanch
them first which involves briefly
boiling them before plunging them
into ice water. Later we found you
could just cut the dumb things up
and freeze them without the te-
dium. There wasnt much taste or
texture difference between beans
frozen the hard way or the easy
way.
Secondly, Im not good with cer-
tain vegetables, such as corn. My
dad could raise corn and so can my
wife, but I dont seem to have the
knack. Mine grows two feet tall,
tassels out, and puts out stunted
little ears. Other veggies are so
buggy that I tire of picking off bugs
or fluffing everything with insecti-
cide. Potatoes and every member
of the cabbage family come to
mind. The cabbage family would
include cabbage, broccoli, cauli-
flower, Brussels sprouts, and
kohlrabi.
As a result of excessive garden-
ing over many years, I have, of
course, gained a lot of knowledge
through experience. Oddly enough,
though, I often get carried away
with things to the extent that they
nearly drive me crazy. Then, after
Ive learned all I want to know
about a subject, I sort of lose inter-
est and go on to other things. The
learning somehow seems more im-
portant and interesting than going
on and continually using the
gained knowledge and experience.
I cant exactly explain why that is,
but it has happened to me more
than a few times. Rabbit raising
and photography come to mind.
Im still in my computer, writing,
and piano playing modes, however,
and all are complicated enough
that they should hold my interest
for a while yet.
As you know, however, home-
grown tomatoes and cucumbers
are much superior to anything you
can buy in a store. Neither do they
take a lot of special care. A little
watering and fertilizing should do
the job, especially if you dont have
a lot of other plants to tend. This
year, then, my plans are to have
about three tomato plants and a
couple hills of cucumbers. I might
also plant a few radishes just be-
cause I like to grow them. They
only take a month from seed to
dinner table and are fun. I dont
eat them much since I dont enjoy
burping them for hours after-
wards, but wife Corinne likes them
which is a good excuse for growing
them. Actually, Id plant a few
more things like beans, peas,
beets, and squash if our life was a
little more settled, but that doesnt
appear to be in the cards this year.
Maybe next year.
Huckleberries, by the way, are
fun to grow. They do bake up into
fairly good pies, but the best thing
is when people see them growing
and pick some to eat. They look de-
licious but are perfectly dreadful
when raw. The grimace on the face
of someone eating an uncooked
huckleberry is priceless. So, for
now, its about time to plant
radishes, beets, peas, potatoes,
and leaf lettuce since those thrive
in cool weather and dont do much
if planted too late. Ill leave those
to you this year since you probably
have already contracted garden
fever and cant wait to feel the soil
run through your fingers. I person-
ally will just wait a few more
weeks and get going on some
tomatoes and cucs. As you can see,
I have garden fever under control
for now, but there may be an out-
break of it at some time in the fu-
ture. Its hard to say. Good luck to
you on having a sensibly sized gar-
den this time around. If I can do it,
so can you, or at least for this year.
No bets on next year.

Lookin Around
by Syd Iwan
Grady Davis celebrated his
twelfth birthday a couple times
this last week. On Saturday, he and
his family journeyed to Wall where
they hooked up with their Irish
friend, Trisha, visited with her and
some friends of hers, toured Wall
Drug, etc. Trisha has stayed at the
Fortune Bed and Breakfast several
times, and Francie visited her in
Ireland last year. Then at Cowboy
Church, held at the hall in
Belvidere on Wednesday evening,
they had a birthday cake and ice
cream. Gradys mom, Francie, is
currently editing the South Dakota
poetry magazine and will be work-
ing on that through April instead of
writing Belvidere news.
Rudy Reimann visited his folks,
Rick and Rayma, in Midland on
Friday and Saturday. His brothers,
Stanley and Forrest, were home
since they came to attend the Mike
Schofield funeral in Philip on Fri-
day. Rudy was a pallbearer at the
funeral. Rudy was quite a bit
younger than Mike but still consid-
ered him a good friend. Rudy said
they had an inch of rain in Midland
by Sunday morning and more came
throughout the day.
Bunny Green was visited on Sat-
urday by her former daughter-in-
law, Penny, of Sturgis. Penny and a
friend of hers brought all kinds of
goodies with them for dinner and
left the remainder for Bunny to use
later. Penny is an artist, and
Bunny says she can really paint.
Bunny visited with Betty Kusick
on the phone this week, but the two
didnt get together in person.
Bunny also got a graduation an-
nouncement from the daughter of
Dan Davidson of Idaho. Dan is the
son of Marguerite Drabek and ran
the truck stop in Kadoka for a
number of years. He had some
fairly serious health problems for a
few years but seems to be recov-
ered from those at present. Larry
Grimme stopped by briefly on Sun-
day as did Wally Wells. Bunny also
learned this week that her grand-
daughter, Cindy Houcks husband,
Don, lost his sister in a car accident
recently and had to fly to the fu-
neral.
Bill and Norma Headlee were
visited a couple times this weekend
by their daughter, Corale Dorn,
and family of Dell Rapids. The
Dorns were coming and going to
Spearfish where they participated
in the Whirlwind Horse memorial
run. This was in commemoration of
a high-school and college classmate
of some family members that had
been killed in a car accident.
Corales sister, Monica, is another
runner in the family but didnt par-
ticipate in the run this year since
she is expecting a baby in June.
This was a long run but shorter
versions were also available.
Norma figured between Corale, her
husband, and kids, a goodly num-
ber of miles were covered. Headlees
were also visited by Normas sister,
Marge Kraushaar, of Illionois this
week. Marge had been staying with
her brother, Tom DeVries, for a few
days, and they both came over for
supper one day when Corale and
family were there. The Headlee
household was busy last weekend
over Easter with daughters, Mon-
ica, Donella, and Anora, on hand
with various family members. Sev-
eral kids were involved which re-
quired the hiding and finding of
lots of Easter eggs.
Greg Badure said they have
been staying fairly close to home
this week, in part because the kids
had colds and such. There wasnt
even Sunday school on Sunday
since teacher, Merry Willard, called
and said she wasnt in to fighting
muddy roads to come in that day.
Greg said they will go back to the
12-hour days required for rest-area
maintenance starting in mid-May.
Out at the ranch, Al and Bax are
into calving and are being assisted
this year again by Paul Scherff.
Paul works most of the year on a
dude ranch, the H F Bar, near Buf-
falo and Sheridan, Wyoming. It is
in the foothills of the Bighorn
Mountains. This is the same ranch
that Greg worked on for about 15
years, and it is considered the sec-
ond oldest dude ranch in the coun-
try. It was started back about 1910
when its owners were looking for
additional income to pay for the
ranch. Various guys from the area
have worked there on and off,
mostly through Gregs encourage-
ment since he was the first from
this area to work there. Tojo Os-
borns nephew, Troy Ehrmantraut,
was one of those who spent several
seasons at the H F Bar and one
who often comes here in the spring
to help with brandings and other
work. He does a lot of horse shoeing
during the year as well.
Mike Perault said calving has
been going quite well, thanks in
part to the nice weather this year.
He was glad to report an inch and
twenty hundredths of rain this
weekend which he said was very
welcomed.
Mark DeVries said his sons,
Gavin and Geoffrey, are in track at
present. The family often attends
the Kadoka meets to cheer them
on. Marks folks, Jim and Lynn,
came from Kansas a few weeks ago
during their spring break since
they are both teachers. Jim is ex-
pected back probably in May for a
while as usual as are various other
family members. Lynn DeVries has
taught school in Korea on and off
for quite a few years but is not
planning any trips there in the
near future due to unrest between
the Koreas and between them and
neighboring countries.

Saturday evening before Easter,
Chris and Cindy Knecht and boys
of Martin visited in the Dan Taft
home. Easter Sunday guests at the
Tafts were Susans parents, Alvin
and Judy Simmons, of Martin.
On Monday, Dan Taft and
daughters, Samantha and Morgan,
helped Evan and Dorothy Bligh
work cattle at Maxine Allards.
Samantha left for USD in Vermil-
lion that evening. Dan, Susan and
Morgan took livestock to Philip for
the sale on Tuesday.
The Jason Burma family left for
their home at Sunshine Bible Acad-
emy on Easter Monday afternoon
after spending the Easter holiday
weekend at Norris. They went
home by the way of Platte and vis-
ited a bit with Andrea Beckwith at
the Todd County Tribune in Mis-
sion.
Heather Taft headed back to
SDSU at Brookings on Tuesday
after spending the Easter weekend
at home.
The school election was held at
the Norris Township Hall on Tues-
day with Susan Taft, Leona Wood-
enKnife and Erna WoodenKnife
serving on the election board.
School News:
The Tuesday afternoon grade
school basketball games with
White River will continue through
the month of April. This week it is
at Norris gym, come and cheer the
kids on.
Parent/teacher conferences will
be held on Thursday evening from
4:00 to 8:00 p.m. Parents be sure
and attend.
Maxine Allard and Evan and
Dorothy Bligh were among the
huge crowd of folks attending the
services for Scott Arrow held on
Wednesday afternoon at the Norris
School gym. Our prayers continue
for his dear family.
Thursday morning the James
Letelliers were in Philip and en-
joyed a visit with Ellen Totton. Jim
and Jessie Root of Midland also
stopped to visit Ellen that morning.
St. John Lutheran Ladies Aide
met Thursday afternoon at the
church with Sharon, Jan Ring and
June Ring and Pastor Denke at-
tending. They were busy planning
the upcoming LWML meeting.
Saturday, the gals hosted the
Lutheran Womens Missionary
League at the church basement
with twenty one ladies attending.
Ladies attended represented
churches in Gregory, Winner, Rose-
bud, Murdo, Draper, Chamberlain
and Lead.
Pastor Andrew Utecht was the
speaker for the event. They were
thrilled to have former St. John
Lutheran Pastor and Mrs. Bob
Utecht attend, along with former
St. John members, Emma Waack,
and daughters, Dorothy and Mil-
dred, of Winner. Glad to hear your
boys are taking such good care of
you, Emma.
Julie Letellier was an overnight
guest at the James Letelliers and
did some yard work before the driz-
zly weather set in on Saturday.
When she turned the water on at
the Burma garden spot, it really
did decide settle down and rain.
Rain is the name of the game
these days. We woke up to a lovely
slow steady rain on Sunday and it
continued through out the day.
Rain is worth more than pennies
from heaven in this country! We
are a very grateful people and with
such a dry winter, we began to
wonder if it even could rain. The
moisture was just what the doctor
ordered for this country and it
came at the right time, too. It was
fun to hear reports of anywhere to
1.5 inches to 2.8 inches and every-
where in between. We are thankful
for every drop!
Have a great week!
If there are any problems in lo-
cating information, however, it can
take longer. That is especially true
when it involves someone who has
died, DeJabet noted, and heirs are
trying to locate the required infor-
mation.
However, using the depart-
ments Internet site, www.sdtrea-
surer.gov, can greatly speed up the
process, with the key being to have
the right information to submit.
If after searching the list at the
site, and finding property, there is
a claim form to complete. Print the
form and sign it, photocopy the re-
quested documentation, and mail it
to the State Treasurers Office. A
search can also be requested by
phone, calling the division at 1-
866-357-2547, or emailing at un-
claimed@sdtreasurer.gov.
Written requests for searches
may be sent to State Treasurer
Rich Sattgast, Unclaimed Property
Division, 500 E. Capitol Ave.,
Pierre SD 57501. Items to include
are your legal name, prior name if
it has changed, current mailing ad-
dress and phone number. If a
search of someone elses name is re-
quested, the relationship with that
person must be included.
Its good to do the Internet
search, reminded Sattgast, since
the ad listing in the newspapers is
only the current year.
There also is a dollar limit for
those listed in the ads, said DeJa-
bet. The website, she said, lists
everything $10 and up. Typically,
she said, if a claim is made, the
staff will check also to see if there
is anything under $10.
So, then youll find that $1.83
dividend, DeJabet added, and
well attach it.
Currently, Sattgast said, noth-
ing under the $50 limit is listed in
the advertisement. Come July 1,
when new legislation goes into ef-
fect, that limit will increase to
$125.
But the website still will have
everything $10 and up, DeJabet
said, and we have the ability to
change that limit. However, the
problem with seeing that mythical
$1.18, she said, is that people will
see that and wont act on it.
If a claim form is not returned in
120 days, DeJabet said, and no re-
sponse received to the reminder
sent out halfway through, we will
drop your claim, because as you
can imagine, we get thousands of
claims and they will remain open
and in our system if we dont have
a deadline.
It always can be refiled, said
Sattgast, adding, these properties
are in perpetuitythere is no
deadline that they no longer belong
to the person.
Our database is kept forever,
said DeJabet, adding, we never
erase your name if it has not
been paid out, you will always be in
there.
It is, she said, what is called a
perpetual liability to the state of
South Dakotawe are obligated to
pay that at any point in time, and
your heirs can come back and claim
it. And, she added, many do.
With about 9,000 new properties
a year to handle, the two explained,
and only three staff members, it is
not feasible to do cold calling,
searching for people, even though
some may appear obvious to the ca-
sual observer. DeJabet said they do
go through and pull out the public
entities that may be listed.
And, Sattgast noted, we have
been advised by the Attorney Gen-
eral not to do a cold call, since it
could be a mistaken identity.
If something is sent out to some-
body in error, agreed DeJabet, it
becomes very difficult for them to
understand when it is found it
does not belong to them after all.
Sattgast said he encourages peo-
ple to check, since the state is cur-
rently holding $23 million worth of
property just waiting for rightful
owners to claim.
Sattgast and staff members are
not just sitting back waiting for you
to call, however they are doing
what they can to be visible and
available at large statewide or re-
gional gatherings of people, such as
at the Sioux Empire Home Show,
the Black Hills Home Show, the
State Fair, the Sioux Empire Fair,
Brown County Fair and
DakotaFest in Mitchell.
And the newspaper advertising
that is done each year reaps bene-
fits seen in increased numbers of
applicants.
By emphasizing the web page in
that advertising this year, DeJabet
said, there were 2,000 more claims
submitted as a result during the
three-week cycle of advertising.
People who call in and are on call
waiting also are encouraged to use
the web page. People with so-called
smart phones can scan the ap
logo in printed information to also
take them to the information.
During the non-advertising time
frame, she said, we average 50 per
day but that is actually picking
up as people become more aware.
Sattgast said the division has two
main responsibilities: one is finding
the properties out there, and the
other is reuniting them with the
people to whom it rightfully be-
longs.
You can write to us, DeJabet said,
adding, you can call us, you can
check on-line, you can check on
your phone, you can visit us at the
Fair or the Home Show, you can
walk inlots of ways to get to us.
And we love to give money away
we are one of the few government
agencies that likes to give money
away.

Whether it is a forgotten safety
deposit box or a lost dividend
check, or even misplaced shares of
stock, the state of South Dakota is
the keeper of unclaimed property.
However, State Treasurer Rich
Sattgast and his staff dont neces-
sarily want to keep the property
forever. In fact, they actively work
to get such items back to their
rightful owners.
Now, with several innovative
ideas in place, Sattgast and Un-
claimed Property Administrator
Lee DeJabet already are seeing
large increases in inquiries about
such property, and getting it back
in the hands of the rightful owners.
But, just what is unclaimed prop-
erty?
We get property in from the fi-
nancial institutions, life insurance,
banks, credit card companies, and
safe deposit boxes or stock, said
DeJabet, and it is put into the de-
partments data base with the last
known person, address, or what-
ever the holder (financial institu-
tion) gives us.
Financial institutions from all
over the nation are required to do
that each year with unclaimed
property, she said. Once the state
has it, the state is required to ad-
vertise what it is holding.
The advertising season recently
ended for the department, and in-
quiries have been pouring in. The
ads listed names, addresses and a
file number for each unclaimed
property and are regionalized for
the area served by the newspaper.
Now we will ask you a few ques-
tions, said DeJabet about the
process, if we are talking to you on
the phone. That will be such
things as name, address and social
security number. If that matches,
she said, a claim form will be
mailed out.
The claim form will have on it
how much the property is, where it
came from, how much it is, and the
guidelines, or documentation the
department needs.
Two things we always require,
said DeJabet, are a government-
issued photo ID and your social se-
curity number. There will also
have to be proof if a name has
changed, she added.
Then, depending on what kind of
property it is, business, inheritance
and such, all have their own type of
documentation needed, she said.
Once the applicant returns the
claim form, she said, and every-
thing is good, we process it and it
goes for payment. This generally
takes 10 days, DeJabet said, but
can take up to three weeks, be-
cause after the Treasurers office
processes the claim, it goes to the
State Auditor for issuance of the
check.
It may only take one to two days
at the Treasurers office, she said,
but once it gets to the Auditors of-
fice, it has to be checked and placed
on their payment schedule. If ei-
ther office is experiencing high vol-
ume, it can take the three-week
span.
State Treasurers office continues search for owners of unclaimed property

FARM PROGRAM SIGNUP
The Jackson County-Farm

ducers that the deadline to enroll
in the 2012 Direct and Counter-
Cyclical Payment (DCP) or Farm

DCP provides payments to eligi-
ble producers on farms enrolled for
the 2012 crop year. There are two
types of DCP payments: direct
payments and counter-cyclical
payments. Both are calculated
using the base acres and payment
yields established for the farm.
DCP is authorized by the Food,
Conservation, and Energy Act of
2008 (2008 Farm Bill). Participat-
ing producers agree, among other
things, to apply conservation com-
pliance plans on Highly Erodible
land, control weeds/pests and fol-
low the swampbuster/sodbuster
provisions.
FARM LOAN PROGRAMS
The U.S. Department of Agri-
culture's Farm Service Agency

improvements.
FSA also makes operating loans
of up to $5,000 to eligible individ-
ual rural youths age 10 through 20
to finance income-producing, agri-
culture-related projects. The proj-
ect must be of modest size, educa-
tional, and initiated, developed
and carried out by rural youths
participating in 4-H clubs, FFA or
a similar organization.
The project must be an organ-
ized and supervised program of
work. It must be planned and op-
erated with the assistance of the
organization advisor, produce suf-
ficient income to repay the loan,
and provide the youth with practi-
cal business and educational expe-
rience in agriculture-related skills.

The Kadoka Area School District will be conducting their an-
nual pre-school and kindergarten screening on Wednesday,

any six-year-olds that are new to the district and have not pre-
viously been screened are eligible for testing. This includes all

ley, Interior and Midland. Sara Speer, Birth to Three Coordina-
tor, will be available for testing and questions.

sion, hearing and motor skill development. Someone from
Jackson County Health will be there to conduct the hearing and
vision screening and to check shot records.

Parents are asked to call Danielle at 837-2173 and register
their children. Only those kindergarten children not already at-
tending pre-school need to call and register. This will help in

screening. Parents with questions concerning the screening
and/or scheduling are requested to call the elementary office or

lot about types of financial aid and
where I could live; I found more
about road construction and power
line careers. At this point I don't
know what I am doing, but I have
a lot of information about the ca-
reers, financial aid and types of
scholarships I might try and find. I
have a lot to think about until I
graduate, but at least I know what
kind of classes I could take to help
me in tech school.Ill have to get
my grades up and come in on time
to school. Ill have to try a lot more
to get my grades up and keep them
up, if I want to go to MTI, but I
think I am going to have to grow up
a little before I start thinking about
a school and actually pass high
school!

I felt like the trip to Mitchell
was a great learning experience to
see the type of environment that I
will be working in and the way that
you behave in a shop such as the
way our tour guides showed us
they act. I felt like this gave me a
better outlook at going to school
there and I believe I will. Thank
you for your patience and coopera-

time out of your day to show us
what we can look forward to in col-
lege.

On Wednesday the 11th of April,
five students from Kadoka Area
High School attended the Mitchell
Technical Institutes exploration
day.
Bri Stone and Sierra Sitting Up
explored the culinary school and
were able to check out housing op-
tions as well.
Ty Merchen, Ryder Sanftner and
Chris Anderson took in the power
sports major, farm and industrial
tech, carpentry and diesel engines.
The students represented
Kadoka well, and seemed im-
pressed with the new building and
advancement that is taking place
at MTI.
Below are some of the student
responses from the day.
What I can say about the trip is
it was very fun -- there was some
stuff I like and didnt really like. I
didnt like the ag technical because
there was too much talking and
they were saying stuff I all ready
know. But my last class was very
good -- we got to see a lot of equip-
ment they worked on. I really liked
Mitchell but I would like to see
what other schools have too.
--Ty Merchen
The MTI visit helped me learn
more about what kind of thing I am
able to do,my career was carpen-
try, its what Iwas looking at doing.
But I found out a lot about power

2012 Wheat GDD Ahead of
Normal; Frost Damage?
As the warm winter of 2011-12
transitioned to a warm spring, a
common topic of conversation has
been the winter wheat getting too
big too fast. The threat of a late
spring frost, when wheat is in an
advanced growth stage and im-
pacts to yields are greater is still
possible.
To determine how far ahead of
normal the 2012 winter wheat
crop is; visit the South Dakota
Automatic Weather Data Net-
work (AWDN) archived degree
days website: http://climate.sd-
state.edu/awdn/archive/degree-
days.asp. Choose the time period
you are interested in and the auto-
matic weather station you would
like to calculate Growing Degree
Days (GDD) for. For wheat GDD,
enter 32 in the GDD box and 95/32
in the methods boxes.
Wheat GDD advanced early and
quickly in 2012 compared to nor-
mal in most or all locations in
South Dakota. At the Hamill, SD
AWDN, from February 1 to April
10, accumulated wheat GDD were
934, compared to the normal level
of 510. With a normal accumula-
tion of wheat GDD of 15 per day
for this time of year, one can calcu-
late that winter wheat develop-
ment is approximately 4 weeks
ahead of normal.
The growth stages of wheat are
not strictly tied to, but highly de-
pendent on GDD. The early and
rapid progress of wheat GDD in
2012 has led to winter wheat
growth stages advancing much
earlier in the year than normal.
The progress of wheat growth
stages is also affected by the pho-
toperiod (length of day) and ver-
nalization (cold temperature)
requirements of various varieties.
Data for accumulated GDD for the
various growth stages of wheat can
be found in the Montana State
University publication, Using
Growing Degree Days to Predict
Plant Stages.: http://msuexten-
sion.org/publications/AgandNatu-
ralResources/MT200103AG.pdf.
Reports of early-planted winter
wheat beginning to joint in south-
central South Dakota began com-
ing in as early as April 6. With 50%
probability of the last spring frost
(28 degrees F) ranging from mid-
April to Mid-May across most of
the wheat growing area in South
Dakota, plenty of opportunity re-
mains for damaging frosts to occur.
The last spring frost can also occur
later than the 50% probability
dates, and an analysis conducted
by SDSU Extension Climatologists
suggests that late spring frosts are
more common following dry win-
ters.
The Kansas State University
publication: Spring Freeze Injury
to Kansas Wheat:
http://www.ksre.ksu.edu/library/cr
psl2/c646.pdf is an excellent re-
source to assess freeze injury to
wheat. The growth stages, approx-
imate temperature (duration of 2
hours) at which injury occurs, and
yield effects are: tillering 12 de-
grees F, slight to moderate; joint-
ing 24 degrees F, moderate to
severe; boot 28 degrees F, moder-
ate to severe; heading 30 degrees
F, severe; flowering 30 degrees F,
severe; milk 28 degrees F, mod-
erate to severe; and dough 28 de-
grees F, slight to moderate.

ient usually cost more. As an exam-
ple, consider choosing unsweetened
fruit juice, water or low fat milk in-
stead of soft drinks. Another option
would be to select homemade,
lightly salted popcorn, dry roasted
nuts or natural nuts, instead of
snack chips. Try to shop just once a
week. Its easier to make wise
choices if you shop less often. Use
coupons for foods you really want.
A food isnt a good deal if no one
eats it.
Sometimes processed foods are
less expensive, but they are usually
higher in fat, sugar, salt and artifi-
cial ingredients and lower in vita-
mins, minerals and fiber. These
types of foods are fine to eat once in
a while, but you should plan to se-
lect more nutritious foods to eat
daily.
Food is a manageable expense,
so it can be a focus for reduced
spending when money is tight. By
planning ahead and managing
your money wisely, you can still
serve meals that are delicious and
nutritious. Go to http://www.meals-
matter.org/MealPlanning/ for meal
planning tools created to make
healthy meal planning easier for
your family.

There are many ways to stretch
your food dollar. Everyone wants to
get their moneys worth in food
these days. Healthful eating
doesnt have to cost more. It might
even cost less. Healthy foods give
you more value for your dollar.
Controlling food costs wisely in-
volves careful grocery shopping.
You will spend more if you are hun-
gry, so try to eat something before
you go shopping. Consider shop-
ping alone; it may allow you more
time to read labels and compare
prices if you arent distracted by
family members. Read labels so
youll know what you are paying
for. Compare cost of similar food
items by using unit pricing. To find
the best buy, you need to compare
the costs of the amounts you need
for a meal or for a serving.
Planning ahead will assist you
in spending less on food. Write a
weekly meal plan. It should include
all daily meals plus snacks and
even those eaten away from home.
Try to include at least one planned
over meal per week to use leftover
food from another meal. Check
your fridge and cupboards to see
what you already have on hand,
then make a shopping list and stick
to it.
When shopping, choose basic,
nutritious foods rather than ready-
to-eat, highly processed and refined
foods. Foods that are more conven-
Controlling meal costs tips
After the April 9 freeze, many
South Dakotan's are asking, "What
will last night's freeze do to my
trees?"
Not as much as you think, is
John Ball's answer.
The SDSU professor, SDSU Ex-
tension Forestry Specialist and the
South Dakota Department of Agri-
culture, Forestry Health Specialist,
says some of the tree's foliage will
recover, some foliage will show
blackened margins but otherwise
recover, and some trees will lose
most of their leaves from the frost -
however, the good news is much of
this foliage will be replaced.
"The tender foliage on trees that
are leafing out is sensitive to freeze
injury and I already saw some wilt-
ing leaves this morning, however,
fortunately many tree species to
have a "reserve chute" and will put
out a second set of leaves in the
next few weeks to replace the lost
ones," Ball said.
He adds, "We saw this about
three years ago in the north-central
part of the state and the trees re-
covered just fine. The biggest prob-
lem will be the flowering trees."
Ball explains that once the flow-
ers are killed, that's it.
"You will not get replacement
flowers this spring, so the loss of
the flowers means no fruit this fall
on the pears and plums that are in
bloom right now," he said. "At least
in the northern half of the state the
apples have not bloomed yet so
they should be fine. But in the
southern half of South Dakota,
where the apples were blooming,
we may see less fruit set on apples
as well as the other fruit tree
crops."
