Campbell Soup and Letter
Carriers sponsor food drive
Campbell Soup Company along
with Wall and Philip’s letter carri-
ers celebrate the 20th anniversary
of Stamp Out Hunger food drive.
Nation’s largest single-day food
drive collected 70.2 million pounds
of food last year.
On Saturday, May 12, 2012,
Campbell Soup Company will
again join forces with the National
Association of Letter Carriers
(NALC) to help Stamp Out Hunger
across America. Now in its 20th
year, the annual food drive has
grown from a regional to a national
effort that provides assistance to
the millions of Americans strug-
gling to put food on the table.
The Stamp Out Hunger food
drive, held on the second Saturday
in May, has become the nation’s
largest single-day food drive bene-
fitting Feeding America, the na-
tion’s largest domestic hunger-re-
lief organization. In 2011, generous
Americans donated 70.2 million
pounds of food, which marked the
eighth consecutive year that at
least 70 million pounds were col-
lected by letter carriers.
“We’re incredibly excited for the
20th anniversary of the Stamp Out
Hunger food drive,: said Fredric V.
Rolando, NALC president. “We’re
asking people across the country
for their support to make this
year’s drive the most successful in
its 20 year history. It’s so easy to
make a donation: simply leave a
bag of non-perishable food by your
mailbox to help neighbors in need.
That’s all it takes.”
This year, Nick Cannon, multi-
talented entertainer and member
of the Feeding America Entertain-
ment council, is the national
spokesperson for the Stamp Out
Hunger food drive for the second
year in a row. The drive particu-
larly hits home for Cannon, who
experienced hunger and visited
food pantries as a child. Cannon
will promote the drive on television
and radio, as well as in print and
social media to encourage even
greater participation and dona-
tions.
The need for food assistance con-
tinues to exist in every community
in America, no matter how rich or
poor. According to the U.S. Depart-
ment of Agriculture’s annual study
measuring food security in the
United States, the number of
Americans living in food insecure
homes reached nearly 49 million in
2011 (the most recent years that
such data is available). Perhaps
most alarming is the fact that
more than 16 million children in
America - more than one in five -
are faced with the prospect of
hunger.
Campbell Soup company and its
partners are producing post cards
and shopping bags that will be de-
livered to more than 90 million
homes across the country as a re-
minder to participate in the drive.
In addition, Campbell will again
support this year’s food collection
effort by donating one million
pounds of food to Feeding America.
“Campbell is committed to the
success of the Stamp Out Hunger
food drive and we encourage every-
one to participate,” said Denise
Morrison, Campbell Soup Com-
pany’s president and chief execu-
tive officer. “It’s unfortunate that
millions of Americans, especially
our children, continue to go hun-
gry in a country as bountiful as
ours. We believe that, with the
help and generosity of those who
are able, we can provide much
needed support for our community
members in need.”
To participate in the 20th Stamp
Out Hunger food drive in Wall and
Philip, residents are encourage to
leave a sturdy bag containing non-
perishable foods, such as canned
soup, canned vegetables, pasta,
rice or cereal next to their mailbox
prior to the time of regular mail
delivery on Saturday, May 12, Wall
and Philip’s letter carriers will col-
lect these food donations as they
deliver the mail and take them to
the Country Cupboard.
Feed America provides food as-
sistance to 37 million Americans
every year. According to Feeding
America, one in eight Americans
relies on the organization for food
and groceries and the organization
distributes three billion pounds of
donated food and grocery products
annually.

Professional fire crews from
Badlands National Park and the
Northern Great Plains Fire Office
successfully completed the park’s
first prescribed fire of the spring: a
560-acre burn on Tuesday, April
24.
The burn location was west of
the Pinnacles Entrance, between
the Badlands Loop Road (Highway
240) and the Sage Creek Rim
Road. Fire is native to the prairie
ecosystem, and part of a healthy
landscape.
The goal of the burn was to re-
store Grassland habitat by reduc-
ing accumulated vegetation and
non-native grass species.
Factors such as humidity, fuel
moisture, forecasted weather, and
especially wind speed and direc-
tion, were carefully evaluated be-
fore ignition.
Pennington County fire officials
were consulted.
Picture perfect prescribed
burn completed at Badlands
Conditions were within the pre-
scription, and weather forecasting
and fire models confirmed a favor-
able burn could take place. Fol-
lowing a required test burn 9:30
a.m. to confirm conditions, ignition
proceeded and the fire was con-
ducted safely as planned, ending
by 1:00 p.m.
Fire resources from Badlands
and Wind Cave National Parks,
Devil’s Tower and Jewel Cave Na-
tional Monuments and Buffalo
Gap National Grassland in Wall,
included six Type 6 wildland fire
engines, two wildland fire mod-
ules, a 6,000 gallon water tender,
and four utility vehicles with
water tanks.
Preparation for the burn in-
cluded mowing along the fire unit
boundary. A low steady wind and
stable atmosphere produced a
textbook burn.
Salazar, Jarvis announce proposal to establish
Nation’s First Tribal National Park in Badlands
Secretary of the Interior Ken
Salazar and National Park Service
Director Jon Jarvis announced the
release of the final General Man-
agement Plan/Environmental Im-
pact Statement for the South Unit
of Badlands National Park, recom-
mending the establishment of the
nation’s first tribal national park in
partnership with the Oglala Sioux
Tribe.
“Our National Park System is
one of America’s greatest story
tellers,” Salazar said. “As we seek
to tell a more inclusive story of
America, a tribal national park
would help celebrate and honor the
history and culture of the Oglala
Sioux people. Working closely with
the Tribe, Congress, and the public,
the Park Service will work to de-
velop a legislative proposal to make
the South Unit a tribal national
park.”
The South Unit of Badlands Na-
tional Park is entirely within the
Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in
southwestern South Dakota. The
Park Service and the Tribe have
worked together to manage the
South Unit’s 133,000 acres for
almost 40 years. If a tribal national
park is enabled by Congress
through legislation, the Oglala
Sioux people could manage and op-
erate their lands for the educa-
tional and recreational benefit of
the general public, including a new
Lakota Heritage and Education
Center.
The GMP/EIS reflects the goals
of the National Park Service’s re-
cently released “A Call to Action”
plan for the Service’s next 100
years that emphasizes a system of
parks and protected sites that more
fully represent our nation’s natural
resources, history and cultural ex-
periences. The tribal national park
would seek to promote an under-
standing of Oglala Sioux history,
culture, and land management
principles through education and
interpretation.
“Continuing our long-standing
partnership with the Tribe, we plan
to focus on restoration of the land-
scape, including the reintroduction
of bison that are integral to the cul-
tural stories and health of the
Oglala people,” said NPS Director
Jon Jarvis. “We will offer expanded
access and opportunities
for visitors to experience the
beauty and utility of the prairie as
the Oglala Sioux have for cen-
turies.”
The National Park Service,
Oglala Sioux Tribe, and the Oglala
Sioux Parks and Recreation Au-
thority have been cooperatively de-
veloping the GMP/EIS for the
South Unit of Badlands National
Park since early 2006. The man-
agement plan acknowledges the
important partnership between
the National Park Service and
Oglala Sioux Tribe and establishes
a common vision for managing re-
sources and visitor use in the
South Unit.
Under the plan, the National
Park Service and the Tribe will
focus on restoring the health and
vibrancy of the prairie to enhance
wildlife habitat, expanding bison
into the South Unit, providing
roads and trails and providing
greater opportunities for visitors to
experience the natural grandeur of
the South Unit and the heritage of
the Oglala Sioux people.
The National Park Service is ex-
pected to sign the Record of Deci-
sion for the GMP/EIS this sum-
mer; however, congressional legis-
lation is necessary before the Serv-
ice can implement the Plan’s Pre-
ferred Management Option. In
the meantime, the Park Service
and Tribe may prepare for and im-
plement appropriate parts of the
plan and identify the components
of a tribal national park that need
to be addressed by legislation.
Depending on Congressional ac-
tion, the South Unit could be being
administered through a variety of
options, including as a unit of the
National Park System managed by
tribal members hired as NPS em-
ployees or managed by tribal mem-
bers as employees of the Tribe. The
plan proposes no change in overall
responsibility or management ab-
sent Congressional legislation.
The “Call to Action” goal of en-
gaging youth has already begun at
Badlands where tribal and non-
tribal students will work together
as seasonal NPS employees this
summer, receiving training and ex-
perience in the responsibilities of
being National Park Service
rangers.
“These are our future rangers,”
said Badlands Superintendent
Eric Brunnemann. “These are the
young people that may lead a
tribal national park into the fu-
ture. I do see a time when our
rangers will routinely work side-
by-side with tribal biologists,
archeologists, and paleontolo-
gists.”
In 2010, nearly one million visi-
tors traveled to Badlands National
Park and spent $23 million in the
Park and surrounding communi-
ties. This spending supported
more than 375 area jobs. With ex-
panded future opportunities for
recreation and education in the
South Unit, a tribal national park
is an exciting prospect for South
Dakota.
During World War II, the War
Department established the Pine
Ridge Aerial Gunnery Range from
lands within the Reservation. In
1968, the Gunnery Range was de-
clared excess, and Congress con-
veyed most of the lands to the
Tribe with the provision that the
South Unit be administered by the
National Park Service.
In 2003, the Tribe formally re-
quested government-to-govern-
ment negotiations regarding man-
agement control of the South Unit,
and the Park Service, the Bureau
of Indian Affairs and the Tribe
agreed to use the general manage-
ment plan process to explore op-
tions for greater involvement in
the South Unit.

A deadly crash occurred behind
the Wall Community Center on
Wednesday, April 25. The crash
was the result of a drunk driver
hitting a suburban full of young
people. The crash sent seven to the
hospital, one to the mortuary and
the driver to jail.
I’m so sorry, I’m so sorry were the
words uttered over and over by
Wall Senior Alexis Billings who
was driving a jeep that had hit a
suburban full of her friends. When
the 911 call came in freshmen stu-
dents from Wall, Philip and
Kadoka listened as Samra Trask
who was first upon the accident de-
scribed the scene to the dispatcher.
911 dispatched the South Dakota
Highway Patrol, local Deputies
from Wall, Fire Departments from
Wall, Interior and Philip and the
Wall and Rapid City Ambulances
along with Life Flight.
The FRESHMAN IMPACT:
Caught in the Moment drug and al-
cohol awareness program consists
of multiple learning stations for
students ranging from a course
simulating drunk driving to a pres-
entation showing what happens in
a rollover if you are not wearing
your seatbelt and a mock accident.
The National Guard Counter
Drug Program from Rapid City
brought a climbing wall and a OH
58 Kiowa helicopter for students to
experience getting high on life, not
on drugs.
Game, Fish and Park explained
the importance of wearing a life
jacket and protective gear and not
drinking while out on the water.
The Wall, Philip and Interior
Fire Departments gave mock
demonstrations on how they extri-
cate people from wreckages.
The Wall Ambulance then
showed how a patient is strapped
to a backboard and loaded into an
ambulance.
The Front Porch Coalition talked
to the students about suicide pre-
vention. Presentations were also
given on Texting and Driving and
Synthetic Drugs.
These learning stations were
taught by local law enforcement,
fire and rescue personnel, and peo-
ple that have been impacted by the
effects of driving under the influ-
ence of drugs and alcohol.
South Dakota State Troopers
showed students slides of fatal
wrecks while Trooper Ross, who is
a restorations officer of crash
scenes, explained to students the
importance of respecting vehicles
and others. Trooper Ross empha-
sized the reasons to pay attention
to the road and others, along with
what happens if speeding and to be
observant of road conditions. Ross
asked, “Is there anything in this
world you need to be an hour early
for?” He then went on to say this is
why we are here today, all the
slides are over people who killed
themselves for stupid reasons.
As students proceeded to the
mock accident, screams of pain,
crying and sirens in the back
ground could be heard.
EMTs, fire fighters, troopers and
paramedics accessed the most crit-
ical and the Life Flight helicopter
and hearse were then called to the
accident.
After the last victim was loaded
into the ambulance and the fatal-
ity placed in a body bag, students
were asked to line up two-by-two
and proceed through the Honor
Guard, back into the community
center. When the students entered
into the grand hall they were met
by a coffin with a senior gradua-
tion picture placed on the closed
lid. Next to the coffin stood Brady
Sudbeck from Kadoka, the young
man who was to graduate from
high school in May. He stood there
with his head bowed because he
was the one who was in the coffin.
Judge Bob Mandel from Rapid
City presided over the vehicular
homicide trial of Alexis Billings.
Prosecutor Roxi Erickson argued
that the maximum sentence
should be handed down. Erickson
said, “She was the one who got be-
hind the wheel after drinking. She
was the one who drove to fast and
ran a stop sign. She caused the
death of a passenger and left one
in critical condition.” Your honor
it’s not okay to drink and drive its
criminal. Erickson ended her argu-
ment on that note.
Dan Van Gorp argued on behalf
of his client. Alexis is just a child
herself, she is only 18 years old. If
given a 30 year term in prison she
will be 48 when she gets out. Van
Gorp stated, “She is sorry, she will
do anything that the court orders,
but take pity on her, she is sorry.”
Judge Mandel informed Billings
that she intentionally and illegally
became intoxicated and got behind
the wheel. There are consequences
for what you did and I sentence
you to eight years behind bars.
Actors for the mock accident
were: Cheyenne Deering, Libbi
Sykora, Alexis Billings, Kailey Rae
Sawvell, Anna Kitterman, Kale
Lytle, Ryder Wilson from the Wall
High School and Tess Byrd, Sean
Ireland and Brady Sudbeck with
Kadoka High School.
As the South Dakota State
Troopers say, “If this program
keeps just one of our teens from
making a wrong decision, it is
worth all of the time and money in-
vested.”
Freshman Impact: Caught in
the Moment was held in Wall
Campbell Soup Company and NALA celebrate the 20th anniver-
sary of Stamp Out Hunger. Letter carriers from Wall and Philip
will collect non-perishable foods to help stock the Country Cup-
board food pantry in Wall on May 12,2012.

The South Dakota Game, Fish
and Parks Department and the
state Department of Health re-
cently teamed up in an effort to in-
crease the amount of time children
in after-school programs spend out-
doors.
The two departments recently
awarded nature activity totes,
filled with items to encourage out-
door activities, to 114 after-school
and out-of-school programs across
the state. Based on class sizes pro-
vided by applicants, the totes will
reach nearly 7,000 children.
“The nature grant program is a
perfect opportunity for GFP and
the Department of Health to part-
ner with caregivers in getting kids
outside,” said GFP Secretary Jeff
Vonk. “Keeping kids physically ac-
tive and connecting them with na-
ture is very important, both for the
GFP and DOH offer grant
program to get kids outside
children as individuals and for so-
ciety as a whole.”
Studies show children who play
outside are healthier, have higher
self-esteem, are good problem-
solvers, have good self-discipline
and do better in school.
This is the third installment of
the grant program. In the first two
years, the Game, Fish and Parks
Department reached over 12,500
pre-school age children by award-
ing backpacks to 424 childcare
providers across the state. Fol-
lowup surveys showed that child-
care providers were going outside
more often and spending longer pe-
riods of time outside each time.

portunities provided by GFP can be

SDSU Extension hosts a four-
week course focused on strategic
planning, financial statements and
production topics as part of the Ag
CEO program. The Ag CEO pro-
gram concentrates on understand-
ing how production factors, along
with fulfilling a leadership role, is
critical to today's active producers
understanding risk management
and ability to transition their oper-
ation for success.
Like the Chief Executive Officer
of any corporation, an Ag CEO is a
manager and visionary for their ag
enterprise. SDSU Extension will
work with farmers and ranchers on
their way to becoming an Ag CEO,
by focusing on a "systems ap-
proach" to farm and ranch business
planning. General topics will in-
clude:
•Ranch/Farm vision
•Resource inventory (Family,
Land, Crops & Livestock)
•Production topics (personalized
to each group)
•Financial records/budgets
The Ag CEO program is open to
any crop or livestock producer. The
program dates are May 17, 24, 31
and June 7. This program qualifies
as FSA Borrower Training with an
additional session on June 14.
It will be held at Bad River Sen-
ior Citizens Center from 5:30 p.m.
to 8:30 p.m. To register and ask for
more information, contact Paulette
Morse at 605-394-1722.
To learn more about the Ag CEO
program, visit iGrow.org or call
your nearest SDSU Regional Ex-
tension Center.

being planned for the annual Na-
tional Day of Prayer on Thursday,
May 3, at the Wall Community
Center Grand Hall. The event will
start at 7:00 p.m. and will feature
music and a moving video message
of Pastor Jim Cymbala of Brooklyn
Tabernacle in New York. First
preached at a Gaither music gath-
ering in Indianapolis in 1994, this
message has been seen by thou-
sands around the world and is a
powerful call to prayer for the
church.
Following the video presentation
there will be a time of corporate
and small group prayer followed
by refreshments and fellowship.
The event is being sponsored by
the Evangelical Free Bible Church
and everyone is welcome to attend.
Wall Main Street update
Warm weather and hard work
by the construction team has put
the Wall Main Street Project
ahead of schedule.
The concrete crews have com-
pleted the concrete paving on the
entire project and now the work
has shifted to concrete grooving
and applying cold plastic pave-
ment markings for parking lines
and pedestrian crossings.
The new street light poles and
luminaires have been installed
and the old wooden poles and
sodium lights have been removed.
The new lights are styled to repli-
cate the acorn luminaires that
lighted streets across America in
the first half of the 20th Century.
The Contractor will focus on as-
phalt paving at the concrete con-
nections and applying the pave-
ment markings for the project.
The Traffic control will be ad-
justed to allow for asphalt patch-
ing and grooving work. Grooving of
parking lines will also be added
from 4th Ave. to 5th Ave. and 6th
Ave. to 7th Ave.
The work is scheduled for com-
pletion by mid-May in advance of
the 2012 summer tourist season.
Lion’s Club donates trees to fourth grade ... Philip Pearson and
Carol Hodge represented the Wall Lion’s Club as they gave
sapling evergreen trees to each of the Philip fourth grade stu-
dents, Wednesday, April 25. The Lion’s also gave trees to the
three Milesville fourth graders. The saplings are currently about
18 inches in length. “We are giving you each a tree to plant on
Friday (Arbor Day). You can plant it anywhere you want, only
somewhere that you can take care of it,” said Hodge. “The in-
structions for planting are on the package. Mostly they want
water. This is your tree. This year we are going to try to plant
more than a million trees in the nation.” The motto for the tree
planting program is ‘Plant me, water me, feed me, love me.’ Co-
incidentally, Hodge’s mother, Hilda Keyser, once taught fourth
grade in Philip. Pearson has been a Lion’s member for 40 years.
A future project for the Lion’s is, with the Wall City Council’s per-
mission, to erect shade canopies over some public picnic tables.

Dandelions!! The mere mention
of the word sends shudders down
some gardeners spines. After all,
they do ruin the appearance of that
picture perfect green oasis we call
lawn. Right? Well …. like most
things, it's a matter of perspective,
so let's examine the humble little
dandelion a bit further, shall we?
It's scientific name is Taraxacum
officinale, but it also goes by other
names, such as Blowball, Canker-
wort, Clock Flower, Irish Daisy,
Lion's Tooth, Milk Witch, Monk's
Head, Piss-a-bed, Priest's Crown
and is of the Asteraceae family.
A perennial, the Dandelion is a
member of the sunflower family,
the name comes from the French,
'dents de lion' ("teeth of the lion")
due to the shape of the leaves. A na-
tive to Europe, it is now wide-
spread as it was taken around the
world for its medicinal and culi-
nary uses. Dandelions are popular
with beekeepers as they are an
early source of nectar.
In my native Germany, Dande-
lions are used as cover crops be-
tween rows in vineyards. In that
highly populated little country
with few wild spaces, many folks
enjoy it in their lawns as food for
bees and other beneficial insects.
The flowers can be used to make
wine, the leaves boiled like spinach
or added uncooked to salads, and
the roots used as a vegetable or
roasted and brewed for a coffee-like
beverage. Dandelions used to be
grown in unheated greenhouses to
provide salad leaves in winter.
Dandelions – Foe ... or Friend?
They contain potassium, sodium,
phosphorus and iron. The leaves
are a richer source of Vitamin A
than carrots and also have some
Vitamins B, C and D. It is a mild
laxative and diuretic, has been
used as a tonic and blood purifier,
for skin conditions, joint pain,
eczema and liver conditions such
as hepatitis and jaundice.
It is also used as a hangover
remedy: drink two cups of tea per
day, morning and evening (steep
one to two teaspoons of dried root
in one cup of hot water for 10 to 15
min.)
Other applications are for treat-
ing: Acne; Bladder infections;
Eczema; Endometriosis; Gall-
stones; Hemorrhoids; High blood
pressure; Liver disease and warts.
Dandelions are one of the few
plants where all parts of the plant
are useful.
With so many beneficial uses,
where did we ever get the idea that
this jewel in God's Pharmacy is a
“bad guy”? Is that mono culture
sea of green around our homes re-
ally that attractive? Would we be
better off looking at meadows,
grasses mixed with lively splashes
of color, bees and birds and NA-
TURE?
It's all a matter of perspective.
More info is available on the web
and through the book: THE
HERBAL DRUGSTORE by White
and Foster through Rodale Press.
What is a weed? A plant whose
virtues have never been discov-
ered.

Wall Writers Group to meet
second Saturday in May
by Linda M. Hiltner
One five-minute write topic at
the April meeting was “What is the
most memorable thing you have
ever thrown?” These short Memoir
stories ranged from having thrown
a tantrum to a dish being thrown
at someone to not being good at
throwing a baseball or football.
As far as the assigned topic
“What is in the sack?” one writer
left us with a cliff hanger. Many
fond memories of meals around the
kitchen or dining room table were
shared by the writers, which was
the second assigned topic for April.
The next meeting of the Wall
Writers Group is scheduled for Sat-
urday, May 12—the day before
Mother’s Day. Starting at 9:30
a.m., at 416 Sixth Avenue in Wall,
writers will share their written sto-
ries on the assigned topics or bring
something else they have written,
such as a short story, poem or
Memoir writing.
The assigned topics for May are
“Your early years, were they fun?”
This is not a “yes” or “no” answer,
though. Keep in mind Memoir
writing and do an at-home, five-
minute write about something
that either actually happened or
write the memory into a fictional
story.
The second topic is “Write about
having guests for a meal.”
Last, please bring a notebook
and pen. Anyone interested in
writing (at any age or writing abil-
ity) is welcome to participate in the
Wall Writers Group.
If you have any questions,
please contact either Linda at
(605) 786-6937 or Dave at (605)
279-2952.
Keep the “Wild”
In Wildlife; hands
off young animals
Spring and summer are wonder-
ful times to enjoy wildlife in South
Dakota, but the Game, Fish and
Parks Department warns that
well-meaning wildlife encounters
can be potentially lethal to baby
animals.
“We have a very strong nurtur-
ing instinct when it comes to
wildlife, especially baby animals,”
said Chuck Schlueter, communica-
tions manager for the Division of
Wildlife. “Not only do we want to
see wildlife thrive in our state, we
want to make sure that every indi-
vidual animal is taken care of. It is
part of who we are as human be-
ings, and unfortunately it can be
very harmful.”
The problem, according to
Schlueter, arises when people pick
up baby animals – bunnies, squir-
rels, turtles, fawns, birds, raccoons,
and others – that are thought to be
abandoned. They are often taken to
GFP offices and local veterinarians
in efforts to save them from aban-
donment.
“In many cases, probably most
cases, the baby animals have not
been abandoned,” Schlueter said.
“It is natural for wildlife to leave
their young to forage for food, and
even as protection to draw atten-
tion away from the young. They re-
turn to feed and care for them.”
The apparent abandonment is a
very natural process of animals
bringing up their young in the wild.
It is when those behaviors take
place in urban areas and around
homes that baby wildlife are some-
times picked up by humans. Sur-
vival away from their natural set-
ting can be stressful and often fatal
to young animals.
“I know it goes against our in-
stincts, but the most responsible
way we can protect young wildlife
is to keep the wild in wildlife and
leave young animals where we see
them. It is a lesson for both adults
and children. The touch of a human
being can lead to mortality as fast
or faster than the challenges
wildlife face in their natural set-
ting,” Schlueter said.
May is Older Americans Month
and communities across the coun-
try are gearing up to show appre-
ciation for seniors. The theme this
year is “Never Too Old To Play!”
Older Americans are staying ac-
tive and involved -- here are some
ways you can join the celebration:
Fun with fitness: Take lessons in
tai chi, water aerobics, yoga, or
even dancing to get the blood flow-
ing.
Trivia: Do you know the capital
of Djibouti? Exercise your mind
and show off some brainpower
with a friendly trivia competition.
Group outing: Bridge the gener-
ation gap by joining community
members at a baseball game, bar-
becue or other fun activity.

Wednesday, April 25, Carol
Hodge drove to Philip and met Phil
Pearson. Then they as Wall Lions,
presented the 4th graders with
evergreen trees. This was in honor
of Arbor Day and to be planted on
Friday, April 27. This is to promote
clean air and keep South Dakota
green.
Carol Hodge of Wall, was joined
by Mary Alice Keyser, Ardith
Bauer, and Lola Park of Rapid
City, to meet the Red Hats of the
50s. After lunch in Kadoka, they
went down to the Prang Gallery on
Swift Horse Road, south of
Kadoka. It was a very interesting
and educational afternoon.
Al and Carol Hodge attended
the area AARP meeting Monday,
April 30. This will be the last
meeting until September. We are
always kept up to date on items
that are concerning older people.
They meet the last Monday of the
month.
Amy Beers from Howard, spent
the weekend in Wall. She came to
help her dad and mom celebrate
their birthdays. Gerald Wolford’s
was April 29th and Esther Wol-
ford’s was April 30th. Amy treated
their friends to a Wall Drug donut
on Monday before she left for
home.
Rick and Tracy Seutter of Scotts-
dale, AZ, went to Las Vegas last
weekend to attend an “Eagles”
concert. While in Vegas, they vis-
ited Meta Dabney, who is in an as-
sisted living facility. Bertie Radley,
Meta’s daughter, came by to see
them there.
Dennis and Sara Sharp, Inte-
rior, have a new baby boy born on
April 22, 2012, at Rapid City. He
has been named Colt Judson and
weighed 7 lbs. 8 oz. He has older
brothers — David, Tyler and Levi.
Our heartiest congratulations go
out to the family!
Maddi Bauer, granddaughter of
Dave and Arla Olson, spent five
days last week in the University of
Minnesota hospital. She was a
very sick girl but is convinced that
the prayers for her were what got
her released to go home to Ab-
erdeen on Sunday and is very ap-
preciative. She is on medication
but hopes to return to school to fin-
ish her Junior year of high school.
We wish you well, Maddi.
You could say last Wednesday,
April 25th, was Citizen’s Aware-
ness Day. The tornado siren was
tested to be certain it would func-
tion if there did happen to be a tor-
nado sighted this season. Students
of the school attended a re-enact-
ment of an accident scene sched-
uled by the Department of Trans-
portation at the Wall Drug parking
lot. The wrecked car and victims
were very believable with a life-
flight helicopter on site also. May
the students give a lot of thought
before driving, to do it responsibly,
after attending this function.
There is an awful lot of “cotton”
in the air. Where it has blown
along the curb it looks like snow.
All those with allergies don’t ap-
preciate the season.
It is hard to believe that it is the
month of May — a very busy
month with the end of school activ-
ities. The Elementary School will
have their concert on Monday, May
7th at 7:00 p.m. and the one for
middle school/high school is sched-
uled for Thursday, May 10th at
7:00 p.m. Both are in the main
gym, Wall High School.
Congratulations go out to Ila
Mae Norman as she celebrated her
90th birthday on April 26th.
Congratulations, also, to Don
and Virginia Ferguson, who cele-
brated their 60th wedding an-
niversary on April 17th. This is a
little belated but our wish is sin-
cere.
A handy hint in the family al-
manac put out by Wall Drug Store
says to put a little bone meal
around irises, two to three times a
year and the blooms will be huge,
like hybrid ones. Too late for me
this year as they are already
blooming!
Edith Paulsen spent the week-
end with Darrell and Anita Peter-
son, as they had all their family
home. Edith went to the Petersons
with Landon after he got off work
on Friday. Ashley and Dustin, Car-
men and family came from Sioux
Falls; Michael, Tanya and family
of Philip; and Darin and Kellsie
Naescher of Philip. Michael and
Dustin planted trees on Saturday.
Anita and Kellsie brought Edith
back to Wall on Sunday.
The rains over a week ago and
now again this past weekend have
been wonderful. We could easily
get used to that — rain every
week!
Have a good week.

Greetings… I missed you last
week, Mary, but sure do appreciate
the card I received from you and
your continued thoughtfulness.
Mary Paulsen went by air to
visit her daughter Lynn Mary and
Mike Blaseg and girls, Callie and
Hannah, in Colorado Springs, CO.
Mary left the 19th but Delmer
stayed home as the cows were still
having babies. Mary’s grand-
daughter Callie observed her
birthday the 9th of March and had
several projects lined up for
Grandma Mary to help her with,
planting flowers from starter kids
and cleaning Finnery’s fish tank.
Granddaughter Hannah had a be-
lated birthday party and they all
baked and decorated cupcakes.
Grandma Mary also got to attend
the play “Gilly’s Surviving Island”
that Hannah played the part of
Mrs. Powell. A very special occa-
sion for Grandma. Mary Paulsen
returned April 23rd.
‘Oops’ It was Kelsie Horton that
graduated from SDSU Nursing
School, Saturday, not Mark. As we
know if you read the news, Mark
graduated much earlier in time.
Mark, Kristie and Charlotte
were Sunday dinner guests in the
parental Richard and Nancy Hor-
ton home in preparation to get
ready to leave for their new home.
Monday they left by air.
Nancy Horton said they got an
inch of rain which all who received
any are feeling great thankfulness.
George and Lorna Moore of
Quinn, drove to Belvidere to enjoy
Sunday dinner in the Chris and
Terry Baldwin home. Chris hasn’t
been able to come home with his
bees for the summer season yet.
Branding, the big spring chore
after the calves arrive, is the big
job to complete. As much as rain is
needed it is not one of the wishes
for that day. The calves have to be
trimmed, ear marked and
branded. Wet hide is a hinderance.
So, I imagine the reason for unan-
swered calls. It takes a crew to
gather, sort, cut, rope, brand, trim
and take back to pasture. The crew
neighbors, friends and relatives.
It is going on at the Frank
Wilsey Ranch, today, Monday, the
30th (branding).
Carol Omdahl said she and Vern
have been busy going to doctors for
medical appointments.
Well people this is it. Please if
any of you want to do this, just say
so. It would be doing me a favor. I
don’t like to just dump a responsi-
bility. Until then, I am going to try
in the evenings, the weekend isn’t
working very well.
Lola Joyce Riggins accompanied
Linda and Bonnie Riggins to Mar-
tin, to attend the Electric supper
and meeting. That road is sure a
mess but we lucked out both going
and coming, it didn’t rain.
Thought: Life is in direct propor-
tion to their commitment to excel-
lence, regard of their chosen to en-
deavor. You have within you the
strength, the patience and the pas-
sion to reach for the stars to change
the world.

by Pastor Ricky Kurth
Our month January is named
after Janus, the mythical Roman
god of gates and doorways.
Janus had two faces which
looked in opposite directions, just
as January looks back on the old
year and forward to the new.
Hypocritical people are often
called “Janus-faced” or two-
faced. Abraham Lincoln, not
known for his good looks, was
once called Janus-faced. He re-
sponded, “If I had two faces, do
you think I’d wear this one?”
We can avoid being Janus-
faced spiritually by putting off the
old man and putting on the new
man (Eph. 4:22-24). But many
Christians find this difficult. Some
feel they could more easily
muster up the spiritual fortitude to
live a consistent Christian life if
they could just speak to the Lord
“face to face” on a daily basis, as
did Moses (Ex. 33:11). This
blessing is of course not avail-
able to us during this dispensa-
tion—or is it?
When Paul told the Corinthi-
ans that one day they too would
see the Lord “face to face” (I Cor.
13:12), he spoke not of the day
when they would see His face in
heaven, but of a face-to-face re-
lationship with the Lord that they
actually lived to see and enjoy.
You see, as Paul wrote these
words the Bible was not yet com-
plete. Consequently, men were
able to see God only as “through
a glass, darkly.” The crude glass
of ancient days gave men an un-
clear view of what was on the
other side.
It reminds me of how before
the launch of satellite telescopes,
Earth-based telescopes labored
under the limitation of having to
peer at the stars through the
earth’s atmosphere, which dis-
torted man’s view of the heav-
ens. One scientist likened it to
bird-watching from the bottom of
a lake! But the launch and per-
fecting of the Hubble telescope
gave science a crystal clear
image of Creation.
In much the same way, the ad-
dition of Paul’s last epistles com-
pleted the Word of God (Col.
1:25), and launched our under-
standing into the heavens (Eph.
1:3). Now as we look into the
pages of God’s completed reve-
lation, we are able to see God
Himself “face to face.”
Paul used yet another
metaphor to drive this point
home. Looking into the unfin-
ished Word of God was also like
looking into the crude mirrors of
those days. Mirrors in Paul’s day
gave imperfect reflections, and
so while everyone else knew ex-
actly what Paul looked like, Paul
himself knew what he looked like
only “in part” (I Cor. 13:12). Sim-
ilarly, with the Bible incomplete,
men had an unclear view of the
image of God. But once the Word
of God was complete, Paul pre-
dicted: “then shall I know even as
also I am known,” i.e., then he
would know God as clearly as
men knew him.
Thus there is no excuse for us
to be two-faced Christians. As we
peer daily into the pages of the
written Word of God, we can see
God “face to face,” and can
sculpt our lives into His image:
“But we all, with open face
beholding as in a glass the
glory of the Lord, are changed
into the same image from
glory to glory, even as by the
Spirit of the Lord” (II Cor. 3:18).

Starting with news of the previous
weekend — previous being to me
April 21 and 22 — the Wall Fire De-
partment had their annual pancake
feed. There seemed to be a good
crowd there and in addition to pan-
cakes and sausage it is catch-up time
on news from those you don’t see so
often.
Sunday, Dorothy Shearer had her
spring “Piano Party”. Lloyd and I
enjoy these affairs and in addition to
the music there are, again, people we
don’t often see.
Ash and Madi Grenstiner each
played the competition piece they
performed in Philip, Friday, the
27th. They are winners in my book!
Emily Ferris also entertained. She
will always be a “Wasta kid” to me.
She did a great job with her piano
piece as well and an added treat was
singing a duet with her friend, Win-
ter Godfrey. They did a very nice job
with Dorothy as accompanist, on
“The Rose”.
Congratulations to Cheyenne
Deering on being awarded a $500.00
scholarship from West River Electric
Co-op.
Ken Skillingstad put in a nice new
door at the Community Hall re-
cently. Well, maybe a couple weeks
ago. That door had given good serv-
ice, but there was not much door left!
Thanks, Ken, we appreciate your
willingness and the good job you do.
Neighbors, Jamy and Ray
Williams are expecting a baby the
later part of September. Babies are
such fun. Congratulations!
Karole, Doug and Audrena Harper
have congratulations of a different
order. They bought one of Wasta’s
beautiful old homes from Justin and
Tracy Crawford. It seems I recall
that the house was built around
1919. Whenever it was built — Ka-
role is still excited about it being
their home. Doug is doing some re-
pairs and Karole is “putting away”.
Best wishes for happiness in your
new home.
I was recently told that Marilyn
Keyser is having some serious health
issues. If any of you know where she
is so we could send cards, it would be
so appreciated if you would call and
let me know. She will be in our
thoughts and prayers. My number is
993-3149. I was just thinking we
would be seeing her rolling past on
her way to her spot by the commu-
nity hall very soon.
A visit with Tracy Crawford
brought me sort of up-to-speed with
the life and times of the Crawford
bunch. She is working for the Super
Eight (8) Motel in Wall now. She en-
joys meeting the guests and finds
that generally people are pretty in-
teresting.
Son, Will Housman, had an inter-
esting experience as part of Fresh-
man Impact, sponsored by SD High-
way Patrol, Wall Ambulance organi-
zation, Rapid City Regional Hospital
(Life Flight Helicopter) and other
state and local agencies, as well as
fire truck and jaws of life.
The objective was that the fresh-
man class from Wall, Kadoka and
Philip get an experience akin to
drunk driving, under safe circum-
stances and using special glasses to
distort vision contributing to a woozy
feeling. Every student drove a vehi-
cle (golf cart) wearing glasses. A
mock accident occurred and a death
resulted. Subsequent trial with
Judge Kearn presiding. One of the
student actors was Cheyenne Deer-
ing and other Wasta freshman par-
ticipating were, Dylan Carter, Au-
drena Harper and as mentioned Will
Houseman. What an experience!
Thank you to all who made the effort
and took the time to put this pro-
gram together.
Son, Raiden Crawford,, attended
the music competition in Philip.
Raiden has been playing tuba in the
band and was selected to attend this
yearly function.
I haven’t yet heard if any other
Wasta kids attended. We do have
some talented kids!
Please call me with your news for
the Wanderings column, okay?
A reminder: The Wasta 4th of July
festivities will be upon us soon. I
know it’s two months away, but that
will whiz by! Think parade — we
love to have anybody — only require-
ment is to have a good time. Think
talent show!!
After a brief stay at Rapid City Re-
gional Hospital, Anna Lee
Humphrey is back at Good Samari-
tan. She had a bout with the flu, but
Carl Humphrey reports she is feeling
much better. We see Carl and “the
Duke”, Carl’s faithful companion,
cruising Wasta in his spiffy golf cart
and we enjoy him stopping for a visit
and news of Anna Lee and other
Humphrey family members.
Thursday was WTL day in Rapid
City at Lorraine Venhuizen’s. It is al-
ways so good to be with those Elm
Springs women friends.
Happy Trails!

Black Hills Classic at Sturgis
was cool with occasional rain show-
ers on Saturday, April 28th.
This meet is also known as the
Mini Howard Wood of the West
with tough competition.
Taran Eisenbraun, Junior, was
invited to run the 400M Run.
Only eight runners were invited
from across the state so after being
introduced to the fans the race was
on. It was a close race all the way
and Eisenbraun finished seventh.
He ran well with a FAT time of
52.71. This is good considering the
cold weather and the first place fin-
isher running 50.3 and seven more
close on his heels.
Chavis Shull always performs
well in the Long jump at every
meet. He is a talented athlete along
with Eisenbraun and many others
on the squad.
Please note: The Rapid City
Qualifier meet has been moved to
May 8th at 2:00 p.m. at TECH
track.
