4th Grade hosts Pioneer Supper
The Kadoka Horizons Commit-
tee held a meeting on Wednesday,
May 2.
Recently Horizons has con-
tributed $2,500 to the Kadoka Buf-
falo Stampede committee for the
fence at the entrance of the rodeo
arena, while the committee pur-
chased the entrance sign. The
Kadoka Buffalo Stampede would
like to additional rail to the fence,
but definite plans have not been
determined.
Two trees were also purchased
for the Kountry Kousins 4-H Club
that were planted by the welcome
sign on the west edge of town.
Last fall ten picnic tables were
purchased for individuals or groups
to rent. Ads and contact informa-
tion are in the Kadoka Press. Cur-
rently the tables are being stored
at Hogen’s Hardware. Discussion
was held on purchasing a storage
building to keep the tables in. In-
formation will be collected and pre-
sented at the next meeting.
A city-wide spring clean up was
discussed. The Horizons committee
members will be offering their as-
sistance to possibly help commu-
nity members during this time.
With spring and the warm
weather here, hosting block parties
is encouraged. Anyone who would
like to host a block party and con-
sider projects they could do to im-
prove their block, is encourage.
Groups who are interested or
would like more details, please con-
tact Patty Groven.
City-wide rummage sale in
Kadoka is set for Sat., June 2.
A plant exchange is planned for
Sat., May 19 by Hogen’s Hardware.
Ideas for expanding the garden
tours this summer were also pre-
sented. More details will be deter-
mined at the next meeting.
The next meeting will be held on
Wed., May 16, 12:00 noon at the
Kadoka Fire Hall.
Horizons review
committee update
Do you have an individual in
your school district who goes above
and beyond, and deserves recogni-
tion for the outstanding commit-
ment they show to the education
community? An individual who has
demonstrated outstanding achieve-
ment in implementing technology
to improve K-12 education?
These were the questions asked
by the Technology and Innovation
in Education (TIE) when looking
for someone who is worthy to re-
ceive the Technology Leadership
Award that was to be presented at
the Annual TIE Conference held in
Sioux Falls on April 15-17.
Nominations for the award were
received from school districts
throughout the state including the
Kadoka Area School District, who
nominated Technology Director
Chad Eisenbraun.
Graduating from Black Hills
State University with a business
education degree and a minor in
computers, Eisenbraun came to the
Kadoka School in fall 2001 to teach
business and computer classes.
“I’m not sure what persuaded
me to pursue an education degree,
I’ve just always known that I like
to work with kids,” Eisenbraun
said, “but I do know it was a good
choice, because I love to teach.”
In July 2009 the opportunity
came for Eisenbraun to fill the
technology position. Deciding to
take the technology director posi-
tion was difficult to do.
“I love teaching, but I also love
the challenge of the technology,”
Eisenbraun said. “Having this po-
sition has given me both the oppor-
tunity to continue to work with so
many students, and just not re-
stricted to those in my class, but
also to have a leadership role in
where we go with technology.”
While attending Black Hills
State University Eisenbraun was
able to gain quite a bit of experi-
ence working in the programming
department at the college.
Even though he had a strong
foundation with technical func-
tions, learning all the hardware
and networking has been the most
challenging with this position.
“In this position there have been
a lot of new challenges. You defi-
nitely feel the pressure when
there’s a problem and over 400 peo-
ple are waiting on you to get it
fixed,” Eisenbraun said, “Luckily
everyone is very patient. And I’ve
learned that if I can’t get it fixed, at
least I do know who to contact to
get it fixed,” he said with a smile.
Although among the challenges
also comes the rewards, which are
the growth and expansions of tech-
nology.
“Changes with technology can
sometimes be a little scary, but the
support from the community,
school board, staff and the students
has been tremendous,” said Eisen-
braun. “Without all the support,
the job would be so much more dif-
ficult.”
When the district began advanc-
ing the technology department
there was one computer for every
student in grades nine through
twelve. Since then it has broaden to
include students in grades sixth
through eighth and in the lower
grades, there is one computer for
every two students.
“My personal goal is to hopefully
see our district extend and provide
one computer to every student from
kindergarten to the senior class.”
Eisenbraun stated. “To help the
students in the beginning of their
education and then see them grad-
uate and to know they are leaving
our school with a good knowledge
of technology and to be able to ef-
fectively use it, is very gratifying.”
Not only is Eisenbraun able to
contribute to the education of the
students within the school build-
ing, but he is also able to help plant
seeds of growth on the football
field.
“Being the football coach you are
able to connect with kids in a com-
pletely different manner,” Eisen-
braun stated. “Encouraging them
to work hard, seeing them work
through different issues that arise
and then being able to see the les-
sons they’ve learned on the field
and apply them to their life, that’s
what it’s all about.
“Winning is great and I’ll take a
win anytime, but to see the stu-
dents grow, it can’t get any better
than that.”
“Thinking back, I had a teacher
in high school who I looked up to
with great admiration,” said Eisen-
braun. “He was my computer and
business teacher and also coached
us on the football field. And look at
me know.” he concluded with a
smile.
The dedication that Eisenbraun
has shown has truely benefited the
youth, but his concern for the stu-
dents is evident by the response
and respect that the student dis-
play towards him.
“You never know who it will af-
fect or when it will happen, you
just want to try to have a positive
impact,” he said. “I’ve been blessed
to have the opportunity to work
with the kids and be a part of the
community.”
On Tuesday, April 17 Chad
Eisenbraun was presented the
2012 Technology Director award at
the TIE Conference for his commit-
ment to education and technology.

Kenny Wilmarth provided sam-
ple copies of a new design for 14’ by
32’ banner signs from Rosenbraum
Signs. The signs are placed along I-
90 east and west of Kadoka.
Some members felt the design
was too similar to the last signs
and would like a newer fresh look.
Belinda Mitchell asked if other
individuals could make the design
and submit it for printing.
There was a reminder that the
Lit Swap is on May 9 and the 4-H
Horse Show on Thursday, June 14
at the Kadoka Rodeo Arena.
Jerry and Cindy Willert ad-
dressed KCBA regarding the
Ranch Rodeo which will be held
during reunion weekend on Satur-
day, June 23.
Cindy Willert said the Ranch
Rodeo will begin with a calcutta at
1:00 p.m. at the rodeo grounds and
the rodeo action will begin at 2:00.
There will be a limit of 10 teams in
the ranch rodeo. Following the
event, awards will be held under
the tent on Main Street. There will
be concessions and beer sales at the
arena that day.
KCBA motioned to be a $300
buckle sponsor for the Ranch
Rodeo.
It was also decided to transfer
the City of Kadoka’s 800 telephone
number to the Black Hills Reserva-
tions system. This change can be
made after approve by the city
council.
Bob Fugate said he planned to
visit with the school and city re-
garding upgrading the sound sys-
tem at the auditorium and
questioned if KCBA would be will-
ing to contribute to the cost. Fugate
said he would have more informa-
tion at the next meeting.
KCBA’s next meeting will be
held on Thursday, June 7, 12:00
noon at the H&H Restaurant.
The monthly meeting for
Kadoka Community Betterment
Association was held Thursday,
May 3 at Jigger’s Restaurant with
15 people in attendance.
There was a motion to approved
payment of two bills; one to
Hogen’s Hardware for additional
Easter items in the amount of
$53.61 and another to the Lit Swap
for $30.
There was discussion on another
bill to CBS Signs for the Kadoka
advertising sign located near
Mitchell. CBS will be notified that
they will receive payment when
proof is provided to KCBA that the
sign has been upgraded.
Adele Harty, now with the
SDSU Extension Service in Rapid
City, addressed KCBA members.
She said there will be a Tri County
Ag Day on Friday, June 8 in Cot-
tonwood.
Harty said she is asking the
chambers in Wall, Philip and
Kadoka to help with advertising
and promoting the event.
She explained that the gold
sponsorship costs $300 and it in-
cludes vendor space, advertising
and being recognized in the direc-
tory. The vendor fees, she noted,
would be $100. Harty said there
will be a registration fee, however,
the evening meal and trade show
will be free.
KCBA approved a motion to pay
$300 for the gold membership.
The day’s activities will begin
with the trade show at 10:00 a.m.,
followed be a livestock handling
seminar and a tour and evaluation
of local producers’ handling facili-
ties. There will be a free BBQ start-
ing at 6:00 p.m., and the trade
show will continued.

Verna Mae Sharp ________________
On, Sunday, April 29, 2012,
Verna Mae Terkildsen Sharp left
this earth after a short battle with
cancer to join her husband,
Charles, son, Chuck, and grand-
sons, Jamie Dickey and Lance
Collins, and her parents, Niels and
Anita Terkildsen, sister, Dorothy,
and brothers, Cal, Slim, and Ray-
mond Terkildsen.
Verna Mae Terkildsen was born
on July 18, 1932. She was the sev-
enth of ten children born to Niels
and Anita Brown Terkildsen on the
family farm at Wanamaker, SD.
Verna Mae married Charles Sharp
on January 26, 1951. They cele-
brated their 50th wedding anniver-
sary in 2001.
She loved to sew, upholster, play
her guitar, and sing and yodel. The
last few years of her life she en-
joyed playing guitar for nursing
home residents. She was happy
when her grandchildren took les-
sons from her, learning to play the
guitar. Making people happy was
her special gift.
Verna Mae and Charles owned
and operated Sharp’s Auction for
eight years. She was a people
greeter at Walmart for seven years,
and a health unit clerk at Rapid
City Regional Hospital, retiring in
2008. She loved people and enjoyed
every job she held. Raising her chil-
dren and being a homemaker was
her favorite job. Her family was the
most important thing in her life.
Her mother, taught her to treat
others as you would like to be
treated and from her Dad she
learned, “Hard work never hurt
anyone, honesty pays, and put it
back where you got it.” She always
said she could harness a horse
faster than a lot of people and old
Star was her favorite horse. She
was a proud American and took her
conservative political beliefs very
seriously. She was always ready to
discuss any topic and had a home
remedy for everything.

ters and their husbands, Debi and
Ross Collins, Robin and Rick Muir,

Meals for
the Elderly
Read Genesis 25:29-34
You probably read the story of Jacob and Esau today
and thought, I can't believe Esau sold his birthright for
a bowl of soup. How foolish! But let's think beyond
birthrights and soup. Is there anything of true value
that you are trading for something of lesser worth? In other words, what is your "bowl of soup"?
Have you pursued wealth and a career at the expense of family? Maybe your busy schedule has kept
you from spending time with God in His Word each day. Some people become involved in extramarital af-
fairs, trading the well-being of their family for the satisfaction of lustful desires. Others sacrifice their
health by consuming harmful or addictive substances, or even by overindulging in food. The list of ways
we make foolish, shortsighted choices is endless.
Some of the decisions we make today could rob us of the blessings God wants to give us. When you
yield to temptation in a moment of weakness, you're actually sacrificing your future for momentary pleas-
ure. We can't afford to live thoughtlessly, basing our decisions on immediate desires or feelings. Since the
principle of sowing and reaping cannot be reversed, we need to carefully consider what we are planting.
The harvest will come, and we'll reap what we have sown--and more than we've sown.
Are you contemplating anything that could have serious long-term ramifications if you yield to the
yearning? A wise person evaluates choices by looking ahead to see what negative consequences could fol-
low a course of action. Don't let "a bowl of soup" hinder God's wonderful plans for you.
The Lure of Momentary Pleasure
Inspiration Point
Editor’s Note: Following is the
nomination letter for Chad Eisen-
braun.
Kadoka Area School District is
pleased to nominate Chad Eisen-
braun as the 2012 K-12 Technology
Leader. Mr. Eisenbraun came to
the Kadoka Area School District as
a teacher in the fall of 2001; he has
served as the district’s technology
director since July 2009. He is a
dedicated teacher and technology
director and always demonstrates
a willingness to work with others;
he validates questions and views
them as an opportunity to teach; he
manages nearly 400 computers in
our district including the Kadoka
School and three outlying atten-
dance centers; he manages 1 to 1
student computer usage for stu-
dents grades 6-12 and imple-
mented email for students in the
high school; he works with staff to
incorporate technology into their
classrooms through the use of
smartboards, various 21st century
tech tools, Lanschool, teacher web-
sites and creates “how-to” videos on
various topics for teacher and staff
references; he made available and
set up technology for a teacher at
the Kadoka School to work with
and teach Algebra at a rural atten-
dance center, providing more op-
portunities for the students. Mr.
Eisenbraun is always conscious of
the changes in technology and
makes an effort to prepare our stu-
dents for the ever changing world.
He uses his position as an opportu-
nity to teach students responsibil-
ity and to hold them accountable
for their computer usage. Mr.
Eisenbraun has implemented
“Tech Tuesday” in our school. Tech
Tuesday is a weekly morning 30
minute session on a variety of tech-
nology topics and is held before reg-
ular morning classes begin. In
addition to a topic that he has pre-
pared training for, teachers and
staff members are invited to bring
any topics they may need help with
for discussion or assistance. In ad-
dition to his district technology du-
ties, he has provided technology
assistance to community members.
He has volunteered his time to
transport students to activities.
Students respond positively to
Chad because of his consistent, car-
ing and high expectation attitude.
Students rise to gain his approval.
This is most evident in his coach-
ing/mentoring as the high school
football coach. His connections
with students have inspired them
to make choices for their future –
where some didn’t even realize
they had a choice. Others have
made positive changes in their
lives – things we don’t always know
or see, but the student’s attitude
and dedication reveal a change.
Overall he is an exceptional exam-
ple of a role model for students. His
job provides him the opportunity to
open their eyes to the world of tech-
nology, but more importantly to
make connections with students.
Please consider Chad Eisenbraun
as the 2012 K-12 Technology
Leader.

materials. Some of the accent items
included real rock for the chimneys
or pathways, some real catcus
plants and tree branches for trees
in the yards.
Other projects the student did in-
cluded hand sewn pillows and di-
aries written about daily activities.
The students have been studing
the life of Laura Ingalls Wilder and
will be traveling to visit their
orginal homestead in DeSmet, SD.

Stella Ptak____________________
Stella Ptak, age 97, of Pierre,
S.D., formerly of Philip, died Tues-
day morning, May 8, 2012, at the
Maryhouse Nursing Home in
Pierre.
Stella Ann Cihak was born April
24, 1915, on the family farm home
in rural Dante, the daughter of
Frank and Elizabeth (Rada) Cihak.
She grew up in Dante on the farm
and attended grade school there.
When she started school she did
not know any English for they were
allowed to speak only Bohemian at
home. Stella attended high school
in Wagner and attended cosmetol-
ogy school in Des Moines, Iowa.
During WWII, she worked in an
ammunition factory in Ankeny,
Iowa, where her job was the “sec-
ond draw” for tracer bullets for air-
planes.
Her high school sweetheart re-
turned from service in WWII in
1945, and they were married a
month later in the Dante Catholic
church, the same church she was
baptized and confirmed in. When
they were first married, Ed ran
Ed’s Bar in downtown Dante and
Stella helped him. They raised
three children.
In 1962, after Ed finished his
college degree, the family moved to
Philip where Ed took a teaching
job. Stella began working as a
nurse’s aide at the Philip hospital,
a job she continued into her 80s.
When Ed retired, they started
going south for the winters and
spent the cold months as snowbirds
in Mission, Texas. They would re-
turn in the summers where Ed
would work for the Philip Ambu-
lance Service and Stella as a
nurse’s aide at the hospital.
Ed passed away on May 20,
2008, and Stella moved into Mary-
house Nursing Home where she
has been lovingly cared for since
then.
She loved her family and her
church, attending daily mass. She
also enjoyed bingo, Duke Univer-
sity men’s basketball, and talking
about “old times”, growing up on
the Choteau Creek in Charles Mix
County.
Stella was a lifetime member of
the Catholic Daughters of America
and VFW Auxiliary.
Thankful for having shared her
life are her three children, daugh-
ter Barb Joy and her husband,
Larry, of Pierre; two sons, Tim Ptak
and his wife, Trudy, of Minot, N.D.,
and John Ptak and his fiancée,
Karolea, of Central City; grandchil-
dren, TJ Ptak and family of Kala-
mazoo, Mich., Tonia Kirk and her
family of Minot, N.D., Jaremy Joy
of Minneapolis, Minn., and Josh
Joy and family of Fargo, N.D.; and
a host of other relatives and
friends.
She was preceded in death by
her husband of 63 years, Ed; three
sisters, Rose Novak, Clara Cihak,
and Ann Sykora; and two brothers,
Jim and Bob.
A prayer service will be held 7:00
p.m. CDT, on Thursday, May 10, at
the Maryhouse Chapel in Pierre.
Mass of Christian burial will be
held 10:00 a.m. MDT on Friday,
May 11, at the Sacred Heart
Catholic Church in Philip.
Interment will be held 3:00 p.m.
MDT Friday at the Black Hills Na-
tional Cemetery near Sturgis.
A memorial is established.
Arrangements are with the
Rush Funeral Home of Philip.
Her online guestbook is avail-
able at www.rushfuneralhome.com

Sometimes things look com-
pletely hopeless or impossible. I
have a computer game that starts
out simple and progresses in diffi-
culty. Occasionally I get to one of
the harder sets toward the end and
think, “Not going to happen. I’ll
never finish this in the allotted
time.” Some days I don’t and have
to try again. Often that occurs
when I’m tired or distracted. If,
however, I put my brain in gear
and have at it, I can usually win
despite my negative attitude. Af-
terwards I think, “That’s amazing.
I never thought I could do it.”
You’ve all, I’m sure, been through
situations where hope was at a
minimum. It might have to do with
family or financial problems or
dozens of other trials and difficul-
ties we run into.
Right now, for instance, we are
struggling with our son’s health.
As you may know, Chance is autis-
tic which means he has little
speech and can’t easily tell us what
is bothering him or where it hurts.
Secondly, he has myasthenia
gravis which is a serious condition
where antibodies in the blood in-
terfere with messages from the
brain to the muscles. If this goes
into crisis, Chance can experience
respiratory failure as has hap-
pened six times in the past al-
though not in the last couple of
years. During two of those
episodes, he quit breathing en-
tirely and had to be resuscitated.
As a result, the myasthenia
needs to be controlled with medi-
cines which in turn cause prob-
lems. They badly compromise his
immune system so he is a target
for any bacteria that comes along.
This is made worse by the fact that
many of the common antibiotics
are known themselves to put
myasthenia into crisis so they
have to be avoided. Treatment op-
tions are severely limited.
At the moment, Chance is fight-
ing about five different bacteria
that are mostly found in sores on
his cheeks and ears. He is on three
different antibiotics to try to fix
things. Two of the antibiotics are
crushed and given through his
stomach tube, and the other is
given in twice-daily shots in the
rear. It is not uncommon for our
boy to be on two antibiotics at a
time, but three seems excessive. As
a result, our doctor feared the good
bacteria in Chance’s digestive sys-
tem would be killed off resulting in
problems there, so he recom-
mended giving six ounces of yogurt
daily plus a B-complex vitamin.
These, too, are given through the
stomach tube.
I probably should mention that
the myasthenia has messed up
Chance’s swallowing mechanism
so he is fed strictly through a stom-
ach tube with a canned liquid that
is given every four hours around
the clock. Medicines, too, can’t be
swallowed and have to go through
the tube. One additional complica-
tion is that Chance has a trach to
avoid breathing shutdown when
things get clogged with phlegm,
even though the phlegm is suc-
tioned out several times a day.
At the moment, Chance takes
over twenty pills a day. Five or six
are for the myasthenia gravis. Two
are for acid reflux. Eight are for
pain, six are antibiotics, and one is
a vitamin. Naturally, these all
have to be given on a certain
schedule. As a result, by the time
you give him the food, some water,
the pills and the yogurt, it turns
into a fairly full-time job for wife
Corinne and me. We have to stay
right on top of things and keep a
written daily record of what needs
to be done and when it was actu-
ally accomplished. If things get
any more complicated, we’ll prob-
ably have to go to a notebook with
bigger pages.
Neither is Chance able to do
many other things for himself so
he has to be shaved, bathed and
generally cared for. Those chores
fall mostly to Corinne while I deal
with the ranch and try to keep the
house stocked with adequate sup-
plies.
As you can see, things might
sometimes look impossible. Still,
we value our young son since he is
a cutie and a sweetheart. We in-
tend to keep him with us as for
long as possible. We are even con-
sidering making an arduous jour-
ney to the Mayo Clinic in
Minnesota since our doctor has
recommended Chance have major
surgery to remove his thymus.
This procedure often puts myas-
thenia into remission. That would
be a big plus. The trip there looks
difficult to be sure. Around here,
though, we can do the difficult
right away. The impossible may
take a little longer. After all, God
tells us to think, “I can do every-
thing with the help of Christ who
gives me the strength I need.” He
also says, “With God, everything is
possible.” These assurances make
it worthwhile to give the “hope-
less” and the “impossible” a try.
Impossible
Lookin’ Around
by Syd Iwan
Sad facts of life: Square meals
make round people.
Sharon Ring accompanied Torey
and the boys to the Long Valley
track meet on Tuesday. Grandmas
make great cheerleaders and
Sharon is one of the best.
The James Letelliers made a
trip to Kadoka on Tuesday. The
road construction on Highway 73
makes everyone wonder how long
we will be able travel that way or
have to take another route to town.
The guys are really busy right at
the junction, working both direc-
tions.
The Norris Township Hall was
about booked up this week with
rummage sales. The Mednanskys
had a taco and rummage sale on
Wednesday and Ryan and Jenny
Orrock held a moving rummage
sale on Friday. The Orrocks will be
moving to Timber Lake at the end
of the school term. We will cer-
tainly miss them and hope that
Timber Lake will appreciate them
as much as we do.
Thursday, James and Marjorie
Letellier hosted a birthday supper
for their granddaughter, Andee
Beckwith. Surprise guests for the
Chinese buffet were Andee’s par-
ents Paul and LuAnne Beckwith of
Pierre, (who brought the fortune
cookies). Julie Letellier of Kilgore
also was a guest. It was a fun
evening. Oh, to be nineteen again!
The weather was the main topic
around here again this week.
Early Friday morning we woke up
to the weather radio forecasting
that thunderstorms were headed
our way. Shortly after that, we got
rain and hail. We are very grateful
it was small. We have heard re-
ports of from two-tenths of an inch
to over two inches of moisture and
two inches of hail in spots, too. It is
the first time the creek has run
over the crossing behind the house
without filling the ditch in front of
the house first. One would have
thought it had snowed if you didn’t
hear the hail. We had water pud-
dles all over the place and the creek
is still running. It must have
washed some plowed fields because
it was the muddiest water you ever
did see. We are grateful for every
drop of rain, though and it is early
enough that the garden will re-
cover, but the rhubarb really took a
beating.
Our hearts go out to Mary Hein-
ert at the loss of her father, Bill
Parnell, of Alva, Wyoming. Folks
may remember, when Everett and
Mary Heinert lived at Norris and
she taught at Prairie View School
many years ago. May the Lord
comfort you as only He can at this
sad time of loss. We will keep you
in our prayers.
Maxine Allard is truly enjoying
her many birthday cards she re-
ceived. She is opening a few a day,
to make the pleasure they bring
last just a bit longer. One she
opened Sunday, brought her a spe-
cial thrill since it was from Polly
(Mechaley) Anderson. It included a
first grade picture just in case Max-
ine didn’t remember who she was.
Maxine has had many students
over the years and I think she can
remember every one. She certainly
remembered Polly, though she only
taught her for part of her first
grade year at Long Valley.
Norris School News:
Three fifth grade students,
Jesus Barrera, Matraca White Hat
and Gracie Charging Hawk, repre-
sented the Norris School at the Re-
gional Spelling Bee in Murdo on
Monday.
The third grade class will be
going on a field trip to Rapid City
along with the third graders from
White River this week.
Sports Rally Day will be held in
White River on Wednesday, May
16. Everyone is invited to attend.
Saturday, Evan and Dorothy
Bligh took cows to the sale at Ft.
Pierre and enjoyed taking in the
some of the horse races at the Ft.
Pierre Fairgrounds that day, too.
It has been hard to set up a date
to brand around here. Tafts had
planned to brand on Friday, but
due to the weather they put it off
until Sunday. It was a lovely day, so
friends and neighbors gathered at
Tafts and helped them get that
major project done. This is the best
place in the world when it comes to
friends and neighbors; they care
and share with their whole heart.
Dan had surgery on his left wrist
on Tuesday so could only supervise.
Get well soon, Danny!
Among those helping at the
Taft’s branding were Jesse Fergu-
son, Michael Grass and Marla Fer-
guson. Pete Ferguson was gone
with the truck.
Ed and Carol Ferguson were
helping brand at the Owen and
Bonnie Ferguson ranch on Sunday.
Gene and Marjorie Popkes of
Lakeview were Sunday dinner
guests of her mother, Irene Kauf-
man.
Our area has just received word
of the loss of a dear lady, Joyce
Handcock of Long Valley. The serv-
ices were Wednesday in Kadoka.
Our hearts certainly go out to her
dear family and other relatives and
friends. Joyce was an inspiration
and encouragement to a lot of us.
She made us all better people for
having known her. May the Lord
comfort you at this sad time of loss.
Have a great week!
Lawrence and Loretta Schrieber
of Quinn came on Thursday to visit
with Betty Kusick. They took Betty
home with them and then returned
her to Belvidere on Friday and did
some yard work. Later Loretta and
Betty went fishing and had really
good luck.
Kenny and Roxi Fox had com-
pany over the weekend. Son Shawn
and his wife, Jodi, made it down
from Mobridge. They all went over
to 1880 Town on Saturday and en-
joyed walking through all the
buildings and looking at the ex-
hibits. The 1880 Town opened back
up for the season on April 27. Sev-
eral locals work there as well as a
large community of “migratory” re-
tirees, who come back year after
year. After enjoying the afternoon
there, the Foxes all went over to
Murdo and had supper together.
Otherwise, they are keeping busy
with the spring work and neigh-
bors’ brandings. They plan on
branding on Memorial Day so the
boys and their families came make
it down.
Bob and Charlie Fortune went
up north of Philip on Friday to
work yearlings at Bob’s brother-in-
law, Mark Nelson’s, place. It was
raining quite hard when they came
through Belvidere, but was com-
pletely dry once they turned north.
After they were finished with the
heifers, the crew stuck around and
branded just short of 20 head of
Mark’s calves. Francie Davis and
sons, Grady, Garrett and Gage,
came up to help as well, and the
boys enjoyed getting to help wres-
tle a few of the calves. Francie
demonstrated again that she did
not inherit the Fortune/Nelson ge-
netic that makes roping natural.
Thankfully that wasn’t a surprise
for the rest of the crew, and they
were able to keep their laughter at
a minimum.
Bob’s son, Les Red Paint, from
Yankton, also made it down for the
weekend. He stayed Thursday with
Chad and Francie Davis and fam-
ily, helped work the yearlings on
Friday, and was coerced into re-
modeling the upstairs guest bath-
room on Saturday out at Bob’s. It
was an unexpected project, brought
on by the rain. Along with caulking
being replaced around the skylight,
he helped re-caulk the tub and
shower. He went home again with
friends on Sunday. He said he al-
ways looks forward to the easy
speed of life back in Yankton after
he spends a weekend at home.
Chuck and Merry Willard are
enjoying their new chicks. They re-
ceived a shipment last week and,
other than one death due to “oper-
ator error”, they are doing well.
Chuck said that he can walk into
their pen and “cheap” and they all
lift their heads and come to him.
They will run away from anyone
else who comes into the pen. Who
knows? Maybe Belvidere will get
back on the map for having its own
“Chicken Whisperer” in the com-
munity! In other news, Chuck en-
joyed the Kadoka High School
Triple Crown Rodeo in Kadoka on
Friday while he assisted with the
ambulance crew. He also went up
to Rapid City on Saturday and re-
certified for his EMT training. The
class started at 7:30 a.m. and
ended at 7:30 p.m., making for a
very long day.
Scott and Jodie O’Bryan held
their awards night for last year’s
playdays on Wednesday at the Fel-
lowship Hall. Jodie made pizza and
those who came brought a dish to
share. Six families from Belvidere,
Kadoka and Murdo made it over
and enjoyed the evening. The
Belvidere playdays will start back
up on the first Tuesday of June,
starting at 5:30 p.m. All kids and
grown-ups are welcome to come--
extra stick horses are always avail-
able if you can’t bring a four-legged
one! Jodie has been keeping busy
holding (or trying to hold) her bar-
rel clinics. She did manage to get
one done on Friday, but the Satur-
day clinic had to be canceled due to
the rain. Daughter Faye was down
for the weekend with her family as
well. Scott and Jodie heard from
son Scotty down in Ft. Worth that
he has a new job as editor for the
Texas Longhorn’s newsletter and e-
trails. He will get to use his photog-
raphy skills as well. As if all that
wasn’t busy enough, they also man-
aged to squeeze in a birthday party
for Frank Carlson’s son, Trey, who
turned six.
Branding was on the agenda for
Larry and Lonny Johnston on Sun-
day. They didn’t have rain totals as
some farther south, but the wind
did blow! John and Amanda Neis-
ner were weekend guests at Larry
and Jo’s. John also helped with
branding at Luke VanderMay’s.
Agriculture Secretary Tom Vil-
sack has announced the opportu-
nity for producers to enroll a total
of 1 million acres of land in a new
Conservation Reserve Program
(CRP) initiative to preserve grass-
lands and wetlands. Vilsack will
highlight the announcement later
today at the Interior Department
during the White House Growing
America's Outdoor Heritage and
Economy conference, which em-
phasizes the link between conser-
vation and strong local economies
through tourism, outdoor recre-
ation, and healthy lands, waters
and wildlife. The conference has at-
tracted boaters, hunters, anglers,
farmers, ranchers, land conserva-
tionists, historic preservationists,
outdoor recreationists, small busi-
ness owners, local governments,
tribal leaders and others from
across the 50 United States to dis-
cuss ways to spur and support suc-
cessful conservation projects
around the nation.
USDA's CRP has a 25-year
legacy of successfully protecting
the nation's natural resources
through voluntary participation,
while providing significant eco-
nomic and environmental benefits
to rural communities across the
United States. Under the Obama
Administration, USDA has en-
rolled more than 8 million acres in
CRP. The goal of the new CRP
grasslands and wetlands initiative
is to increase enrollment of envi-
ronmentally sensitive land through
targeted signups. USDA's Farm
Service Agency (FSA), which ad-
ministers CRP, will set aside acres
within the 32-million acre program
for specific enrollments that benefit
duck nesting habitat, upland birds,
wetlands, pollinators and wildlife.
"By focusing 1 million acres of
CRP on grasslands and wetlands,
this initiative will have enormous
benefits for farmers, sportsmen,
and all Americans," said Vilsack.
"CRP is one of our nation's most
valuable and vital conservation ef-
forts, ensuring cleaner air and
water, preventing soil erosion, and
enhancing economic opportunity in
rural America by supporting recre-
ation and tourism. With high crop
prices, this approach to target our
most sensitive lands is essential if
we want to maintain the substan-
tial benefits of CRP while ensuring
that productive farm lands con-
tinue to produce the food and fiber
Americans and the world needs."
Rather than wait for a general
sign-up (the process under which
most CRP acres are enrolled), pro-
ducers whose land meet eligibility
criteria can enroll directly in this
"continuous" category at any time.
Some of the changes brought on by
the expansion will take place im-
mediately and some will be initi-
ated in the coming months.
Changes include:
New Continuous Pollinator
Practice – 100,000 additional
acres
A new continuous practice to
permit producers to develop polli-
nator habitat for many pollinator
species.
Increase Acreage for Wetland
Restoration – 200,000
additional acres
Two practices will expand that
are designed to restore wetlands
that are both within a 100-year
floodplain and outside of a100-year
floodplain. Last year's floods were
a strong reminder of the value of
wetlands in absorbing storm water
and slowing run-off.
Restoration of Critical
Grassland Ecosystems
This initiative targets areas that
can restore important habitats to
protect threatened and/or endan-
gered species, candidate species, or
species of significant social/eco-
nomic importance. The restoration
work would be done through the
following existing practices and
sub-initiatives:
Increase Acreage for SAFE –
400,000 additional acres
SAFE practices provide the flex-
ibility to meet the specific needs of
high-value wildlife species in a par-
ticipating state or region through
higher-quality habitat. SAFE proj-
ects would be developed at the
state and local level.
Increase Acreage for Duck
Nesting Habitat –
150,000 additional acres
Restores wetlands and develops
nesting habitat in areas deemed as
the most critical waterfowl areas.
Currently, there are 175,000 acres
enrolled in this practice.
Increase Acreage for Upland
Bird Habitat Buffers – 150,000
additional acres
Provides extremely valuable
habitat for upland birds such as
quail and pheasants. Currently,
there are 244,000 acres enrolled in
this initiative.
Provide Greater Incentives for
Continuous CRP
To encourage producers to sign
up their most environmentally
valuable acres FSA will increase
the Signing Incentive Payments
(SIPs) to $150 per acre from the
current level of $100 per acre. The
incentive is offered on most contin-
uous practices and will include
wetland restorations, pollinators
and upland bird habitat.
Recently, USDA announced two
additional CRP sign-ups: a four-
week general sign-up beginning on
March 12 and ending on April 6;
and a continuous sign-up for
Highly Erodible Cropland begin-
ning this summer, which seeks to
protect the nation's most environ-
mentally sensitive lands. The
Highly Erodible Cropland initia-
tive permits landowners to enroll
up to 750,000 acres of land with an
Erodibility Index (EI) of 20 or
greater.
Currently, about 30 million
acres are enrolled in CRP. Con-
tracts on an estimated 6.5 million
acres will expire on Sept. 30, 2012.
Over the past 25 years, farmers,
ranchers, conservationists,
hunters, fishermen and other out-
door enthusiasts have made CRP
the largest and one of the most im-
portant in USDA's conservation
portfolio. CRP is a voluntary pro-
gram available to agricultural pro-
ducers to help them use
environmentally sensitive land for
conservation benefits. Producers
enrolled in CRP plant long-term,
resource-conserving covers to im-
prove the quality of water, control
soil erosion and develop wildlife
habitat. In return, USDA provides
participants with rental payments
and cost-share assistance. Contract
duration is between 10 and 15
years. Producers with expiring con-
tracts and producers with environ-
mentally sensitive land are
encouraged to evaluate their op-
tions under CRP. Producers also
are encouraged to look into CRP's
other enrollment opportunities of-
fered on a continuous, non-compet-
itive, signup basis.

A large crowd of family and
friends attended the funeral of
Verna Mae (Terkildsen) Sharp in
Rapid City on Friday, May 4. Verna
Mae died at her home on Sunday,
April 29, and sympathy is extended
to her family. She was very well
known in the area and shared her
love of music by coming to the
Kadoka Nursing Home many
times. She was buried at the Na-
tional Cemetery near Sturgis.
Pat Kozlik’s daughter, Tammy
Dahms, of Ft. Campbell, KY, has
visited her several times in the
past few weeks. She has been help-
ing get her mother-in-law settled in
Rapid City.
Joyce Handcock, 85, a resident
of the Kadoka Nursing Home for
several years, passed away there
on May 5. She was a former resi-
dent of the Long Valley area.
Joyce’s funeral was held at the
Kadoka City Auditorium in Kadoka
on Wednesday, May 9. The area
communities extend sympathy to
her family. Burial was in the Long
Valley Community Cemetery.
An eight pound ten ounce baby
boy was born to Paul and Sarah
Eisenbraun of Yankton on May 3.
Local great-grandparent is Cloreta
Eisenbraun and his grandparents
are Randy and Laurie Eisenbraun
of Gordon, NE. Cloreta and Krystal
Ring of Gillette, WY, drove to Ver-
million on Friday, where they went
to attend the graduation of Paul
from the law school there, on Sat-
urday. As of Monday the baby is
still in the hospital in Yankton
fighting an infection. We wish him
a speedy recovery.
This past weekend was a busy
time for college graduates. Several
local people went to Spearfish to at-
tend the university’s exercises on
Saturday. Christy Willert and Lau-
rie Prichard both received their

friends and relatives attending
were Jamie Willert, Cleve
Prichard, Jerry and Cindy Willert,
Barbara and Cathy Stone, Pam
and Keith Bonenberger, Laurel and
Rich Hildebrand and Heidi and
Sauntee Coller. Several of these at-
tendees spent the weekend in the
Black Hills and on Saturday
evening they celebrated Laurel’s
birthday and had pre-wedding par-
ties for Jessica Eikmeier and Kipp
Magelky who will be married in
June.
Wanda Swan attended the grad-
uation exercises at BHSU on Sat-
urday with Kim and Terry Deuter.

of Tourism and the Murdo Area
Chamber of Commerce.
The Murdo Area Chamber of
Commerce is hosting exciting sem-
inars on Wednesday, May 16, and
they invite all business owners,
managers and staff to participate.
The sessions will be held at the
Turner Community Center located
at 121 North Main St. (next to
First Fidelity Bank), Murdo, SD.
Jewell Bork, representing the
Murdo Area Chamber of Com-
merce, said, “I was delighted to find
Mary Arlington, a new Pierre-
based speaker and marketing pro-
fessional. She helped us turn May
16th into a great opportunity for
the local businesses by agreeing to
a full day of seminars on a variety
of topics. Her presentations are ex-
citing, and I think the lineup has
something to offer to every busi-
ness in our area.”
Arlington will be providing five
unique sessions to help the busi-
nesses refresh their customer serv-
ice skills, learn how to capture the
attention of geo-cachers (if you
don’t know about them, be sure to
attend the seminar), and how to
gain an even stronger presence on
the Internet. Jewell elaborated,
“One session is a hands-on work-
shop so you can walk away with a
marketing product ready for use.”
Arlington has 10 years of expe-
rience greeting tourists, after a life-
time of being a tourist and also a
self-employed consultant, trainer
and writer. She knows what it's
like to stand on both sides of the
customer counter, and she will help
everybody sharpen their service
skills.
She owned and operated an
overnight campground in the mid-
dle of wide-open Kansas. She un-
derstands rural communities,
tourists who marvel at new territo-
ries, weary travelers, networking,

The 9th Annual Youth Range
Day, sponsored by the Jackson
County Conservation District, was
held April 18, 2012, at the Gene
Williams’ ranch field day site, near
the Badlands National Park.
The purpose of the event is to
provide seventh grade students
better exposure, understanding
and knowledge of the local range
and natural resources.
Sixty-nine students from Wall,
Philip and Kadoka schools at-
tended the Range Day event.
The event is comprised of four
different subjects and educational
stations: range, soils, wildlife, Ge-
ology-Paleontology-Cultural Re-
sources. The students were divided
up into four groups and rotated
through each one hour, educational
station. All attendees were treated
to a delicious noon lunch at the
site.
Professional staff from US For-
est Service National Grasslands,
Badlands National Park, SD
Game, Fish & Parks and SD NRCS
served as educational station in-
structors and educators.
Students were exposed to a vari-
ety of subject presentations,
demonstrations and field exercises,
including: Robel Pole % ground
cover determination exercise, plant
ID, soil field exercises, soil profile
evaluation, animal skull and fur
ID, radio telemetry (animal collar
tracking technology), predator-prey
exercise, and much more.

The entire state should celebrate
the accomplishments of South
Dakota’s top-performing students,
Gov. Dennis Daugaard told a room
of high-achieving seniors during
the 22nd Annual Academic Excel-
lence Banquet, held April 30 in
Pierre.
The event, hosted by Associated
School Boards of South Dakota and
sponsored by the South Dakota
Community Foundation and
Citibank, recognizes the top 1 per-
cent of the 2012 graduating class.
Each of the state’s public, private
and tribal schools are asked to
identify one student for every 100
graduating seniors.
Gov. Daugaard opened his ad-
dress by complimenting students
for their hard work and dedication.
“On behalf of all South Dakotans,
congratulations on your accom-
plishments,” he said. “We are very,
very proud of you.”
The governor invited the soon-
to-be-graduates to dream big and
summon the perseverance to follow
through on their aspirations. “You
have the talent and ability to make
big ideas a reality,” Daugaard said,
adding later that talent, intelli-
gence and education mean little
without persistence and determi-
nation.
Gov. Daugaard called the cele-
bration a time for thanksgiving, en-
couraging students to recognize all
who have helped them achieve.
The governor credited America’s
commitment to public education; a
value he said was reinforced during
his recent trip to Afghanistan. He
also said students should be thank-
ful to taxpayers who fund the
state’s public education system and
to teachers who help students un-
derstand the importance of learn-
ing.
Gov. Daugaard stressed that
students should also take time to
express gratitude to their parents,
many of whom were in attendance
with the honorees.
“Let’s thank mom and dad most
of all,” he said. “They made it all
possible.”
Since 1990, ASBSD has asked
schools to identify the top 1 percent
of the state’s graduating students
to be recognized the Academic Ex-
cellence Recognition Banquet.
Schools are encouraged to choose
students based on academic crite-
ria, such as grade-point average
and scores on college readiness
tests. Parents and high school prin-
cipals are invited to accompany
each student to share in the cele-
bration. This year, approximately
550 students, parents and educa-
tors attended the event.
Associated School Boards of
South Dakota is a private, non-
profit association representing
more than 850 local school board
members, the 150 school districts
they govern and the students they
serve. Our mission is: Partnering.
Advocating. Leading.

Pioneer Supper,
a hit for 4th graders
The annual 4th grade Pioneer
Supper was held Wednesday, May
2 at the Kadoka City Auditorium.
The students, as pictured in the
bottom picture, dressed the part as
pioneers and helped with the serv-
ing. They served chili, cornbread
and dessert bars.
Each of the students made pio-
neer crafts to display that evening,
some of which were used as table
decorations.

Producers who file accurate and
timely reports for all crops and
land uses, including prevented
planted and failed acreage can pre-
vent the potential loss of FSA pro-
gram benefits.
"I encourage all producers to
contact their local FSA office to
make an appointment to file their
annual acreage report by the July
15th deadline in order to comply
with FSA program eligibility re-
quirements," said Schaunaman.
South Dakota FSA offices no
longer mail appointment cards and
maps to producers for acreage re-
porting purposes. Producers are re-
sponsible for contacting their local
FSA office to set up an appoint-
ment to file their 2012 acreage re-
port. Hard copy maps will be
provided to the producer at the
time the acreage report is filed.
Producers wishing to obtain digital
color copies of their respective
maps are encouraged to provide
their e-mail address or a new jump
drive to their local FSA office to fa-
cilitate the request for digital
maps.
Producers are also reminded to
report crop losses insured through
Federal Crop Insurance and the
Noninsured Crop Disaster Assis-
tance Program (NAP) within 15
days of the disaster or as soon as
the loss is apparent.
Additional information about
the acreage reporting process or
programs administered by FSA
may be obtained by contacting your
local FSA office or on the web at
www.fsa.usda.gov.
FSA crop certification deadline is July 15
FARM PROGRAM SIGNUP
The Jackson County-Farm
Service Agency (FSA) reminds pro-
ducers that the deadline to enroll
in the 2012 Direct and Counter-
Cyclical Payment (DCP) or Farm
Program is June 1.
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 sodbuster/swampbuster
provisions-which means that par-
ticipating producers/operators
/landowners must notify FSA of
any new cropland breakings or
drainage practices PRIOR to con-
ducting these types of projects.
This applies on all ground oper-
ated or controlled regardless if the
farm/ground in question is partici-
pating or not. In other words, if a
producer/landowner/operator par-
ticipates in the Farm Program on
one farm he/she has to follow the
sod/swamp buster provisions on
ALL ground, whether it is partici-
pating farm or not.
GovDelivery
Whether we like it or not…soci-
ety is moving toward a paperless
environment. Moving to electronic
notifications and providing pro-
gram information via the internet
& emails will help conserve re-
sources and save taxpayer dollars.
FSA’s initiative in this regard is
known as GOING GREEN.
Next time you are in your local
FSA County Office be prepared to
give them your email address, if
you haven’t done so already. Or
you can go to the SD FSA’s website
and sign up for this service also:
