South Unit general management
plan, Record of Decision signed
On Saturday, June 2 the Record
of Decision (ROD) for the South
Unit General Management Plan,
Badlands National Park, was
signed by Pine Ridge Indian Reser-
vation President John Yellow Bird
Steele and Badlands National Park
Superintendent Eric Brunnemann.
The document was then sent to Na-
tional Park Service (NPS) Midwest
Regional Director Mike Reynolds
in Omaha, Nebraska, who con-
cluded the six year process of pub-
lic involvement in the South Unit
General Management Plan
(GMP)/Environmental Impact
Statement (EIS), by adding his sig-
nature as the approving official.
Referring to taking the next step
and implementing the GMP/EISs
Preferred Alternative, Reynolds
stated, I look forward to working
with all of you to create a lasting vi-
sion and a tribal national park
with programs that match the in-
credible resources and amazing
people of the Badlands and the
Oglala Sioux Tribe.
The ROD is significant because it
identifies continuing protection
and visitor experience goals for the
South Unit by selecting the Pre-
ferred Alternative as the guide to
best manage these world class nat-
ural and cultural resources. The
document also calls for manage-
ment of the South Unit by tribal
members in what would be the na-
tions first tribal national park.
The NPS, Oglala Sioux Tribe
(OST), and Oglala Sioux Parks
and Recreation Authority
(OSPRA) have been working coop-
eratively on the development of a
GMP/EIS that establishes a com-
mon vision for managing resources
and visitor use in the South Unit
of Badlands National Park since
early 2006. With the signing of the
ROD, the NPS and OST will focus
on restoring the health and vi-
brancy of the prairie, enhancing
wildlife habitat, and providing
road and trail access into the
South Unit.
The final GMP/EIS was released
on April 27, and remained avail-
able for 30 day public review fol-
lowing announcement of its avail-
ability in the Federal Register on
April 26. This GMP/EIS has been
developed with extensive public
input and review by tribal mem-
bers, NPS, agencies and organiza-
tions that included 18 public scop-
ing meetings, five draft review
public meetings, and 361 com-
ments. Copies of the final
GMP/EIS are available at Bad-
lands National Park, and on the
Internet at http://www.parkplan-
ning.nps.gov/badl. It can also be
accessed through the parks home
page at http://www.nps.gov/badl.
Following the signing of the
ROD at White River Visitor Cen-
ter, Brunnemann stated, This
signing is a historic milestone, and
its the beginning of a new partner-
ship. The vision described in the
GMP/EIS, which includes manage-
ment by tribal members, will re-
quire legislation and Congres-
sional approval. Brunnemann and
Steele pledged to begin this new
process immediately following the
summer tourist season in August.
Both tribal and NPS representa-
tives will then meet to start draft-
ing the legislation needed to turn
this vision into reality.

The First Interstate Greater
Wall Fund does a fabulous job.
They have $360,000 in their funds
and are close to their five year chal-
lenge of raising $50,000 in five
years, said Noel Hamiel with the
South Dakota Community Founda-
tion. He went on to say the most ex-
citing part of raising those funds is
Wall will probably achieve their
goal in three years. The funds will
be matched by First Interstate
Bank Foundation and the S.D.
Community Fund will then match
up to $25,000 raising the First In-
terstate Greater Wall Fund to half
a million dollars. Hamiel went on
to say, the First Interstate Greater
Wall Fund has always done a fabu-
lous job and the proceeds of these
funds will always come back to the
Wall area.

George Mickelsons vision for com-
munities to have a checking ac-
count to pay bills and a savings ac-
count for rainy days or the future.
The First Interstate Greater Wall
Fund has an opportunity of reach-
ing a million dollars in their sav-
ings account due to their Board of
Directors who have invested their
money wisely. said Hamiel. He
also noted the First Interstate
Greater Wall Fund will be able to
continue to give back to the com-
munity long in to the future.

You may have more options than
you know when it comes to Social
Security benefits. Like many, you
probably have given some thought
to your own retirement plans. You
know you can retire as early as age
62 and get reduced benefits. You
know you can wait until your full
retirement age and get full bene-
fits. You also may know you can
defer collecting benefits and ac-
crue delayed retirement credits up
to age 70, which will boost your
payment.
But did you know that being a
spouse or a widower gives you
even more choices?
For example, if you have
reached your full retirement age
when you elect to receive benefits
and are eligible for a spouses or
ex-spouses benefit and your own
retirement benefit, you may
choose to receive only spouses ben-
efits. In this way, you can continue
to earn delayed retirement credits
on your own Social Security
record. You then may file for bene-
fits on your own record later and
receive a higher monthly benefit
based on the effect of delayed re-
tirement credits.
Widows and widowers have sim-
ilar options. Widows and widowers
can begin receiving Social Security
benefits at age 60, at age 50 if they
are disabled, or at any age if they
are caring for the deceased
workers child who is younger than
16 or disabled and also entitled to
Social Security benefits on the de-
ceased workers record.
Widows and widowers can take
a reduced benefit on one record
and later switch to a full benefit on
the other record. For example, a
woman could take a reduced
widows benefit at age 60 or 62 and
then switch to her full (100 per-
cent) retirement benefit when she
reaches full retirement age.
If you already are receiving re-
duced benefits and you then are
widowed, you may want to wait
until full retirement age to claim
survivors benefits. Then your ben-
efits as a survivor will not be re-
duced for your age. They may be
reduced, however, if your deceased
spouse took benefits early and was
receiving reduced benefits.
The rules vary depending on the
situation, so you should talk to a
Social Security representative
about the options available to you.

cialsecurity.gov or call 1-800-772-

Spousal benefits offer increased retirement options
By Gov. Dennis Daugaard
South Dakota has one of the top
ten fastest growing economies in
the country. As we all know, a
strong, thriving economy is the key
to increasing our tax base and pay-
ing for important government
services: education, law enforce-
ment, and caring for those who
cannot care for themselves.
There is more good news for our
state budget, as well. Thanks to
the conservative, frugal efforts of
our Legislature, we have created a
culture where government doesnt
spend every last penny it receives.
For FY2012, which ends on the
Clearer skies in South Dakota
last day in June, many of our state
agencies will have underspent
their budgets.
With one month to go in the fis-
cal year, we estimate that the state
will spend approximately 99 per-
cent of the funds appropriated this
year. The extra one percent may
not sound like much, but it
amounts to about $13 million on
the bottom line, unspent. Those
dollars will be available for the
Legislature to save or to spend
next year on education, health
care, or other priorities.
That is responsible government.
It is better to have a budget sur-
plus than to spend money that we
dont have.
I am very proud of the people of
South Dakota, for driving our
economy to new heights. I am sim-
ilarly proud of our state employees
for showing the same frugality and
self-reliance that has made South
Dakota a great state.
We weathered a great storm
during the recession that began in
2008, but we made it through to-
gether. We were unafraid to make
the tough choices the right
choices to get our fiscal house in
order, and now we can begin to
reap the rewards. South Dakotas
tax collections look strong, and Im
hoping to report good news about
revenues after the fiscal year ends
on June 30.
Things are going well in South
Dakota and we need to keep it up.
We need to keep adding more jobs
and growing our economy. That
will increase our tax base and
allow us to pay for important gov-
ernment services. At the same
time, we need to always remember
that tax dollars are the peoples
dollars. They should be spent fru-
gally, and we should always err on
the side of surplus rather than
deficit or debt.
If we can do these things, we can
ensure that South Dakota remains
in good fiscal health. Now that we
are on a sound financial footing,
we can turn from repairing our
budget problems to planning for a
brighter future.
This summer, 12 university stu-
dents will learn first-hand about
providing healthcare in rural
South Dakota. This is thanks to
six communities collaborations
with a grant program designed to
raise awareness for the healthcare
services needs in underserved
areas of the state.
The six communities were se-
lected as Best Practice Model
sites for the Rural Experiences for
Health Professions Students Pro-
gram (REHPS) in 2012. The
REHPS program connects inter-
professional groups of students en-
rolled in medical, physician assis-
tant, doctor of nurse practice, and
pharmacy programs through the
University of South Dakota (USD)
and South Dakota State Univer-
sity (SDSU) with medical profes-
sionals practicing in six rural
South Dakota communities. The
program has expanded from three
sites in 2011 to six in 2012.
Students were selected in a com-
petitive process to participate in
REHPS.
Parkston: Danielle Schroeder,
Doctor of Nursing Practice student
from Pierre; Megan Bechen, Phar-
macy student from Winfred
Philip: Tandis Hoffman, Physi-
cian Assistant student from
Lennox; Kimberly Livingston,
Pharmacy student from Yankton
Redfield: Miranda Tracy, Med-
ical student from Pierre; Alyssa
Osborn, Pharmacy student from
Brookings
Wagner: Amber Burke, Phar-
macy student from Round Lake
Park, Ill.; Mikaela Miller, Medical
Six South Dakota towns to welcome
Health Professions students
student from Spencer, Neb.
Wessington Springs: Anthony
Loewen, Medical student from
Huron; Trent Harris, Pharmacy
student from Valentine, Neb.
Winner: Tia Haines, Physician
Assistant student from White
Lake; Justin Cunningham, Phar-
macy student from Bloomfield,
Neb.
In addition to the enriching ca-
reer experience, students will also
be involved in a community project
designed to provide interaction
with people outside of a clinical
setting. The students will call their
new communities home for four
weeks.
Kassy Youmans, REHPS Pro-
gram Manager, said the REHPS
program provides a framework for
community leaders to follow in an
effort to successfully recruit and
retain healthcare professionals.
Students are more likely to re-
turn to facilities and communities
where they have had rich, positive
experiences early in their training.
The REHPS program is de-
signed to allow communities and
students to make this happen,
Youmans said.
South Dakota is experiencing a
shortage of healthcare workers.
The number of high school gradu-
ates in the state decreases as the
number of retirees is increasing.
Between now and 2018, 10 percent
of the new jobs in South Dakota
will be healthcare related. Fifty-
nine of South Dakotas 66 counties
are designated as medically under-
served.
The South Dakota Department
of Game, Fish and Parks (GFP) is
preparing for another record year
of helping landowners reduce or al-
leviate crop damage caused by
Canada geese.
Resident Canada goose popula-
tions continue to exceed manage-
ment objectives in eastern South
Dakota. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service (USFWS) estimated more
than 227,000 birds during spring
population surveys in 2011 well
above the states population objec-
tive of 80,000 to 90,000 Canada
geese.
When combined with favorable
nesting conditions this spring, row
crop expansion, early planting and
high commodity prices, GFP will
undoubtedly be busy addressing
crop damage during the next sev-
eral months.
The high number of resident
Canada geese has landowners
frustrated with crop damage, espe-
cially when commodity prices are
high.
There are many areas in east-
ern South Dakota where farmers
are struggling with crop damage
by resident Canada geese, said
GFP Wildlife Damage Program
Administrator Keith Fisk. GFP
uses a diversity of abatement tech-
niques to alleviate or reduce dam-
age to growing crops, including
fencing, supplemental feeding
sites, food plots, vegetative buffer
strips, hazing and the use of de-
coys and other deterrents.
The Game, Fish and Parks De-
partment can also use its authori-
zation from a federally issued Spe-
cial Canada Goose Permit to de-
stroy up to 2,500 goose nests and
up to 3,500 birds.
GFP uses many tools to help
control resident Canada Geese
This years nestwork activities
have been completed on 71 loca-
tions in eastern South Dakota,
Fisk said.
In addition, GFP has allowed
landowners to remove a limited
number of geese causing damage
at identified complaint locations,
he said.
GFP is authorizing landowners
who meet specific criteria the op-
tion of removing a limited number
of geese that are causing damage
at complaint sites as another haz-
ing technique, Fisk said. GFP
walks a tightrope trying to balance
sportsmens concerns of lethally
removing geese outside of hunting
seasons and farmers concerns
about excessive crop damage.
The Game, Fish and Parks De-
partment has long had a working
relationship with agricultural pro-
ducers when it comes to assistance
in limiting the amount of crop
depredation they experience, he
said.
GFP has also implemented the
August Management Take (AMT)
the past two years and has been
using the Early Fall Canada goose
season for several years in attempt
to lower the resident Canada goose
population. Hunters harvested an
estimated 80,000 Canada geese
during those two seasons last year.
Hunters are a primary tool
used to control the resident
Canada goose population, Fisk
said. GFP encourages waterfowl
hunters to take advantage of the
AMT and Early Goose seasons.
Were trying to use
sportsmen/women as much as pos-
sible to bring the resident Canada
goose population to an acceptable
level.

conditions.
It almost goes without saying
that smoking or smokeless tobacco
causes doggy breath. Avoid these
bad habits.
Of course garlic and onion give
their odor after absorption into
your bloodstream, which is carried
to the lungs, and then transferred
to the breath. Mouthwash or
mints will only cover-up until time
resolves the odor by breaking the
chemical down that is being car-
ried in the blood stream.
You can escape the plodding Pol-
ish Army Remember that bad
breath makes a compelling case
for good brushing and flossing
habits and for regular dental and
medical care.

By Richard P. Holm MD
Halitosis is a fishy and fancy
medical word that stands for bad
breath. Years ago I heard it put
this way: The Polish Army must
have marched through my mouth
last night. Not only is it socially
offensive, a foul odor coming from
between the lips can also reflect a
serious underlying dental or med-
ical problem.
Probably the most significant
cause for bad breath is dry mouth
and coated tongue, often resulting
from medicines like decongestants
for stuffy nose or pills for urinary
incontinence. Dry mouth can also
be due to mouth breathing, aging,
or to an immune disease, which af-
fects the salivary glands. No mat-
ter the cause, without saliva not
only will the breath turn foul, but
teeth fall out. Treat this by avoid-
ing mouth-drying medicines when
possible, sucking on sugar-free
lemon drops or gum, and consult-
ing a physician or dentist. Also
brushing the tongue to remove the
coat will go a long way to im-
prove ones breath.
Periodontal disease with
plaque, gingivitis, or bacterial in-
fection in sinuses or the lung can
certainly cause the odor of rotting.

The 2011-12 school year marked
the fourteenth year of recognition
by the South Dakota High School
Activities Association (SDHSAA)
of athletic teams and fine arts
groups for academic excellence.
The Activities Association recog-
nizes over 300 high school athletic
teams and fine arts groups from
schools across the state which
have achieved the Academic
Achievement Team Award for the
spring season. Any varsity athletic
team or fine arts group achieving
Team awards announced for SDHSAA Fine Arts and
Athletic Academic Achievement in 2012 spring season
a combined grade point average of
3.0 or higher is eligible to receive
the SDHSAA Academic Achieve-
ment Team Award.
Numerous independent studies
conducted by the U.S. Department
of Education and major universi-
ties continue to demonstrate that
students who are involved in inter-
scholastic fine arts and athletic ac-
tivities tend to have higher grades
in school, have better school atten-
dance, and have fewer disciplinary
problems than non-participating
students. These studies clearly
show that high school students
learn valuable lessons and lifetime
skills, not only inside the class-
room, but also through their par-
ticipation in fine arts programs
and school athletics.
In addition, many studies indi-
cate that students who are in-
volved in multiple activities tend
to have even better academic suc-
cess than students that are in-
volved in only one activity.
This award program is spon-
sored by the SDHSAA to recognize
the academic success of the teams
and to encourage all students to
excel in the classroom.
Wall teams who earned the
award are:
Girls Golf Team
Yearbook
Large Group Chorus
Girls Track and Field Team
Boys Track and Field Team
Large Group Band
Boys Golf Team
Student Council
Lake Oahe
Walleye fishing should remain
good on Lake Oahe through the
spring of 2012 and into the sum-
mer. With the good fishing, ques-
tions remain on the status and
health of the food supply in Lake
Oahe. South Dakota Game, Fish
and Parks (GF&P) staff began
their annual monitoring of the
rainbow smelt population in Lake
Oahe during April. This includes
monitoring spawning adults and
growth and distribution of young
fish produced this year, losses of
fish from the system to predators
and reservoir releases during the
summer months, and most impor-
tantly, population estimates at the
end of the summer.
Fisheries Program Administra-
tor Geno Adams said, Monitoring
through lake surveys and angler
creel surveys over the next year
will help paint a clearer picture of
impacts of high water releases in
2011 on reservoir fisheries. We
know fish moved through these
systems, but to what extent it will
affect the sport fisheries remains
to be seen.
GF&P staff began netting for
spawning adult rainbow smelt at
the beginning of April and finished
in early May. Although adult rain-
bow smelt were caught, the num-
bers of fish and the length of the
spawning run were lower than
most previous years. Comparing
catches in 2012 to the last ten
GFP Missouri River Fisheries updates
years suggests that the 2012
spawn was in the lower one-third
in terms of the length of the
spawning season. Hatching condi-
tions during the egg incubation
time frame were mixed. The US
Army Corps of Engineers provided
a slow increase in the Lake Oahe
water level during April. This in-
crease is necessary to keep eggs in
shallow water submerged. How-
ever, Lake Oahe experienced many
high wind events during April.
Waves created by wind stir up the
bottom in shallow areas, which can
damage fragile smelt eggs or de-
posit silt on top of the eggs, suffo-
cating them. Knowing these fac-
tors play a large role in the success
of the smelt spawn, GF&P staff
will continue to sample for young
smelt in Oahe in an effort to deter-
mine spawning success.
In addition, a Lake Oahe gizzard
shad stocking project is underway.
GF&P staff are attempting to bol-
ster Lake Oahe prey fish numbers
by stocking adult, pre-spawn giz-
zard shad this spring. The objec-
tive is for these fish to spawn in
Oahe, providing sport fish with
young gizzard shad as a food re-
source in localized areas. Past
studies have revealed that when
abundant, shad are readily eaten
by walleye and other Lake Oahe
fishes. GF&P staff reached their
goal of stocking approximately
1,700 shad early in May. As with
rainbow smelt monitoring, GF&P
staff will use various tools to mon-
itor the success of the gizzard shad
stocking project.
Lake Sharpe
Fishing has remained good on
Lake Sharpe through the spring of
2012. However, numerous reports
of skinny fish have been fielded
by South Dakota Game, Fish and
Parks (GF&P) staff. Although
most of the walleye in Lake
Sharpe appear healthy, there are
some skinny fish in the system.
This is largely due to low gizzard
shad production in 2011 caused by
the 2011 flood.
During the flood of 2011, water
releases through Oahe dam were
the highest ever recorded. Because
the water intake structures for
Oahe Dam are deep below the sur-
face, water released into Lake
Sharpe was very cold. In fact,
water temperatures last year
were10-16 F below normal sum-
mer water temperatures. These
cool water conditions likely de-
layed gizzard shad spawning in
2011. Thus, fewer shad were avail-
able as food for sport fish through
the winter and spring. Because of
the high number of rainbow smelt
passing through Oahe Dam in
2011, Lake Sharpe sport fish re-
mained healthy through the sum-
mer and fall months despite few
available gizzard shad. Now that
the supply of rainbow smelt from
Oahe Dam has been curtailed, the
sport fish in Lake Sharpe are be-
ginning to feel the effects of a
lower food supply than most years.
However, the effects of low gizzard
shad reproduction in 2011 should
be short lived. GF&P staff have
spent time on Lake Sharpe looking
for evidence of gizzard shad
spawning, with much success.
Initial sampling efforts indicate a
strong gizzard shad spawn is tak-
ing place on Lake Sharpe. Gizzard
shad spawn in shallow water areas
close to shore. They are frequently
observed at Farm Island in Hipple
Lake spawning.
Senior Fisheries Biologist Mark
Fincel said, I have seen first hand
gizzard shad spawning on Lake
Sharpe and we have begun to
catch the larval fish in our sur-
veys. Current weather conditions
will likely favor the gizzard shad
spawn (warm and sunny) so it is
likely the spawn will last a couple
more weeks at least. It is only a
matter of time before we see those
fish in the diets of Lake Sharpe
sport fish.
With a successful gizzard shad
spawn on Lake Sharpe, it is likely
these fish will become available as
food for sport fish by late June.
Until the food supply increases
and water temperatures warm
substantially, we expect fishing to
continue to be good on Lake
Sharpe.
South Dakotans can do their
part to prevent West Nile virus
(WNV) by getting in the habit of
using insect repellent, says a state
health official.
West Nile virus might seem less
of a concern now that South
Dakota has 10 years experience
with it but it would be a mistake to
think the virus isnt a threat, said
Dr. Lon Kightlinger, State Epi-
demiologist for the South Dakota
Department of Health. West Nile
virus can be a serious, even fatal,
illness and we need to prevent it.
South Dakota has reported
1,759 cases, including 26 deaths,
since its first case in 2002. There
Use insect repellent, support local mosquito
control to prevent spread of WNV
have been cases in every county.
Kightlinger said the depart-
ments surveillance is underway
this year as well but all mosquito
pools tested so far have been neg-
ative for the virus. Nationally, 10
states have reported WNV detec-
tions in mosquitoes or animals;
only Texas has reported a human
case.
To prevent mosquito bites and
reduce the risk of WNV, the De-
partment of Health recommends
the following personal precautions:
Use mosquito repellents (DEET,
picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus,
or IR3535) and limit exposure by
covering up.
Limit time outdoors from dusk
to midnight when Culex mosqui-
toes are most active.
Get rid of standing water that
gives mosquitoes a place to breed.
Support local mosquito control
efforts.
Personal precautions are espe-
cially important for those at high
risk for WNV people over 50,
pregnant women, transplant pa-
tients, individuals with diabetes or
high blood pressure, and those
with a history of alcohol abuse.
People with a severe or unusual
headache should see their physi-
cian.
West Nile cases have occurred as
early as June in South Dakota but
peak transmission is July through
early September.

tion on the departments website,

Cooperative Extension Service site

Gasset. Their time was spent pri-
marily in the village of Luchon,
which is in the Pyrenus moun-
tains. Mary and daughter Liz took
the train to Paris for three days of
sightseeing escorted by Christians
sister. REturning to Luchon for
more time with Christian and Liz
helping to get their mountain
cabin (called a grange in that neck
of the woods) painted and spiffed
up meant meeting more interest-
ing people. Mary said she had a
wonderful tim and would enjoy
going back.
The Nachtigal family held their
annual reunion in Wasta over the
weekend. It is always nice to see
peoplee enjoying family and good
to have them come to Wasta. Moni
Grenstiner and Tammy Green
were busy helping with the prepa-
rations which included supper in
the park, with about thirty people.
Sunday morning breakfast was
served int he community hall and
then the group trouped over to the
gas station back lot for a kite flying
contest. Jack Overland had the
oldest kite, being the one he has
flown every year at the reunion.
An oldie but a goodie held true
once again as his kite was flown
(by him) the highest and the
longest to be in the air!
Ash and Madi Grenstiner are at-
tending Bible camp at Storm
Mountain again this year. going
also are Ruth Bryan and Jayton
McKay.
Kelly green has been helping

Friday night, June 15, Carl and
Anna Lee Humphrey attended the
rehearsal dinner for their grand-
daughter, Lonnie Humphrey and
Chance Phillips, her finance. The
dinner was held at the home of
Chance's parents and was an op-
portunity to see and be with family
and long time friends of the
Humphrey's and was a great
evening.
This is quite a big deal for Anna
Lee, as she is recovering form a
second surgery on a second malig-
nant brain tumor and is still in a
wheelchair.
Come Saturday and the wed-
ding, Anna Lee is ready to go
again. The wedding was held at
the Lutheran Church in Wall and
the reception back at the Phillips'
place in a hype tent. More long
time friends to see and visit with
and then something special
married couples were asked to
take the floor for a dance, even
though Anna Lee is in her wheel-
chair and Carl is not real steady on
his feet, they were on the dance
floor and moving to the music that
is dancing!
Carl told me that when he men-
tioned to Anna Lee that this was a
big goal for her, getting to attend
this wedding, what is the next
goal. Carl said it didn't take a
minute for her to replay, "The
Fourth of July in Wasta"!
Member last May when I was
saying the 4th of July is just
around the corner? Now it really
is! The parade begins at 10:30,
Participants and spectators alike

In charging Timothy to
"preach the Word," the
Apostle does not mean, as
some have supposed, that
the pastor should draw his
sermon material equally
from all parts of the Bible.
True, "all Scripture" is
given so that the "man of
God" may be fully
equipped for his ministry.
But in this same letter the
Apostle Paul indicates that
the Scriptures must be
"rightly divided" (II Tim.
2:15) and that his own
God-given message is the
Word of God in particular
for the present dispensa-
tion of grace (See II Tim.
1:7-14; 2:7-9). Thus the
Apostle declares by inspi-
ration that believers are
established by "my gospel
and the preaching of Jesus
Christ according to the rev-
elation of the mystery"
(Rom. 16:25).
How often the Apostle in-
sists that his message is
the Word of God! To the
Thessalonian believers he
writes with joy:
"For this cause also
thank we God without
ceasing, because, when
ye received the Word of
God which ye heard of
us, ye received it not as
the word of men, but as
it is in truth, the Word of
God..." (I Thes. 2:13).
Thus the Apostle writes
to Timothy, in this his last
letter:
"Hold fast the form of
sound words which thou
hast heard of me..." (II
Tim. 1:13).
"And the things that
thou hast heard of me
among many witnesses,
the same commit thou to
faithful men..." (2:2).
"Remember that Jesus
Christ, of the seed of
David, was raised from
the dead according to
my gospel" (2:8).
The charge to "preach
the Word," therefore,
refers to "all Scripture" in
general, but to Paul's God-
given message in particu-
lar. This is obvious, for it is
in urging Timothy to faith-
fully carry on in his place
that the Apostle charges
him to "preach the Word."

My winning hand for those who
demand to win both personally and
professionally is assured with an
ACE in the hole.
Accountability
Communication
Excellence
Let's break these down so that
when we look inside we see the
power of these attitudes and be-
haviors. We then should adopt
them to our personal way of oper-
ating our lives. Take a hold and
turn these keys to greater success.
Accountability:
Service providers and employees
need to make sure, now more than
ever, that they are seeking out ac-
countability for results, and total
customer satisfaction in every con-
tact, including both the external
and internal customer that they
serve. Accountability before, during
and after the sale, are fundamental
and a requirement for success.
Years ago I rebelled in every
major way against accountability,
though today I have a great respect
for accountability and seek out sit-
uations and people to be account-
able to so that I can build this
mindset deeper into my way of op-
erating.
*I cannot say I have totally "ar-
rived" in area of accountability.
Frankly this is something that I
must work at purposefully every
day!
Communication:
Leaders need to make sure they
are clearly communicating the ex-
pectations they have for job per-
formance to their employees.
I refer to this as a Clarification of
Expectations! A clarification in re-
sults utilizes performance stan-
dards and measurement statisti-
cally in numbers, percentages, and
dollars that are written down and
spelled out in black and white. If
an employer fails to communicate
the standards they are to blame for
poor performance of employees on
the job. There are no excuses for
neglecting this leadership respon-
sibility. Simply enlighten your peo-
ple-and do it as often as necessary.
*I cannot say I have totally ar-
rived as an expert in communica-
tions, though it is honestly some-
thing that I must work at precisely
every day!
Excellence:
Seek excellence in every facet of
the job because that is what will
keep people coming back. Excel-
lence is also what may bring for-
mer customers who decided to go
elsewhere for one reason or an-
other back to you. Repeat cus-
tomers and/or contracts renewed
are generally direct results of excel-
lence in service delivery, and when
people have encountered excellence
it turns them on like a light switch.
Satisfied customers respond with
referrals and repeat business. I
personally love quality and excel-
lence as they go hand in hand.
Strive for excellence in all things.
*I cannot say I have totally ar-
rived in this area either. However,
excellence is what I strive for and
work at diligently toward every
day!
In summary, today it will be vital
for you to grab a hold of these three
words and diligently apply them
into your systems of operation
daily. Do not hold back. Take them
seriously and live your dreams.
Today is the day and now is the
time to use that ACE in the hole!
*Reader, you will notice my dis-
claimers in this article. I believe
that anyone speaking or writing on
these subjects needs to place their
personal disclaimer in their work.
If someone claims they have totally
arrived in these areas-well, in my
humble opionion, they have some
serious honesty issues and are a lit-
tle too self-absorbed.
ACE In The Hole
Getting the dirt on dirt for
healthier, happier kids
Dirt is a four-letter word to many
moms, but letting your kids get
dirty is actually good for them ac-
cording to a new report from the
National Wildlife Federation, "The
Dirt on Dirt: How Getting Dirty
Outdoors Benefits Kids."
Fears about dangers lurking in
the muck - microbes, parasites and
amoebas, oh my! - keep some par-
ents from letting kids do what
comes naturally, which is to go out-
side and get dirty.
But here's a dirty little secret:
Children who spend the better part
of their free time in the company of
their sterile hi-tech gadgets rather
than playing outside, are more vul-
nerable to obesity, ADHD, vitamin
D deficiency and depression.
There's a growing body of re-
search that suggests overprotect-
ing kids from dirt and germs may
actually inhibit their physical
health and resilience. Activities
kids love, such as making mud
pies, splashing in puddles and
rolling down hillsides are actually
a grubby prescription for health
and happiness.
Children's stress levels fall
within minutes of seeing green
spaces, according to a 2004 study in
the American Journal of Public
Health.
When children are exposed to
germs and pathogens during in-
fancy, their risk of cardiovascular
inflammation in adulthood is re-
duced, according to a 2010 North-
western University study.
A friendly bacteria found in soil
helps produce serotonin, which en-
hances feelings of well-being, much
the same way that antidepressant
drugs and exercise do, according to
a 2007 Bristol University study.
While common sense sanitation
practices like washing hands and
using hand sanitizer when soap
and water aren't available should-
n't stop, you'll be doing your chil-
dren a favor if you encourage them
to go outside and get dirty.
Here are some fun - and messy -
ideas from the National Wildlife
Federation that will let your kids
have some good, clean, dirty fun
outdoors:
Be an Artist
Give your child a stick and a
muddy surface to draw on. Mis-
takes are no problem. Just smooth
Mud balls can become out-of-
season snowmen or abstract sculp-
tures. If your child's creation isn't
sticking together, just add more
water.
Be a Builder
Your children can make build-
ings of all shapes and sizes if they
use sticks to create a frame and
pack mud onto it. Houses or forts
perhaps, a castle with a moat, or a
If they also like the idea of
large-scale public works, have
them make a river by digging a
trench in the mud or dirt. Then,
add water as needed. Most impor-
tantly, build a dam to protect the
town.
Be a Biologist
When it rains, take a walk
through your neighborhood to see
which animals go under cover and
which come out in wet weather. You
may also see birds swooping down
to take a bath in nearby puddles.
This is also a fine time to study
worms that surface to breathe
when their burrows fill with water.
Then, enlist the kids in a Worm
Rescue Squad and move any
worms they find on the sidewalk
back to the dirt so they don't dry
out.
Be a Chef
If you're going to play in the
mud, why not make some mud
pies? If you have some old cake or
pie tins, great. Otherwise, shallow
plastic containers work just fine.
Once the pies are "baked," it's time
to make them beautiful. Encourage
your children to scour the yard for
pebbles, petals, and leaves that will
Collect dirt, grass, leaves, twigs
and acorns in a large container,
and you have a bountiful nature
salad. Add some water, and it's
mud stew.

Funding available for
outdoor recreation
South Dakota State Parks and
Recreation Director Doug Hofer an-
nounced today that applications
are being accepted for grants from
the Land & Water Conservation
Fund (LWCF).
Outdoor recreation projects
sponsored by city, county, township
and tribal governments are eligible
to receive the grant money.
Outdoor recreation is important
to a healthy community, Hofer
said. The variety of recreational
activities that local parks have to
offer allows families to spend time
together close to home.
The Land & Water Conservation
Fund provides up to 50 percent re-
imbursement for approved outdoor
recreation projects.
Grants will be awarded for de-
velopment or renovation of outdoor
recreation facilities or the acquisi-
tion of park land, Hofer said. The
minimum grant will be for projects
needing a minimum of $10,000 in
federal funds. The maximum grant
awarded will be $50,000 in federal
funds.
Examples of eligible projects in-
clude new playground equipment,
ball diamonds and swimming pool
renovation. The application dead-
line is Aug. 10, 2012.
LWCF funds are federal dollars
that are apportioned to states by
Congress to fund public outdoor
recreation projects. Application
packets are available online at

Milk matters
By Ann Schwader
Nutrition Field Specialist
SDSU Extension-Winner
Regional Extension Center
MyPlate calls the former
MyPyramid Milk Group the
Dairy Group. Consuming dairy
products provides health benefits
such as improved bone health.
Bone mass is built during child-
hood and adolescence, so the in-
take of dairy products during these
years is especially important to
bone health. It shows that milk
matters.
Foods in the Dairy Group pro-
vide nutrients that are vital for
health and maintenance of your
body. Calcium builds strong bones
and teeth in children and youth.
It also helps adults keep their bone
mass so they do not develop weak
bones and diseases like osteoporo-
sis. Vitamin D is a nutrient that
makes sure the body has proper
levels of calcium and phosphorus,
which help to build and maintain
bones. Milk and soymilk that are
fortified with vitamin D are good
You can make history, culture,
natural beauty and scientific explo-
ration a part of your life this summer
by visiting a National Park near you.
The nations 397 national parks
not only protect some of Americas
most iconic treasures, but they also
tell diverse stories and teach valu-
able lessons about our shared her-
itage. National Parks are fun and af-
fordable tourist destinations for fam-
ilies, friends and even solo travelers
looking for a healthy dose of explo-
ration.
School may be out for summer, but
the pursuit of knowledge should
never take a break and a national
park is like a classroom, but way
more fun. Here are some great ideas
for how to learn at a national park
near you:
Commemorate the 150th an-
niversary of the Civil War with a trip
to a battlefield.
Visit the childhood home of a his-
torical figure to learn about day-to-
day living in a different era. Experi-
ence the log cabin in Kentucky
where Abraham Lincoln was born, or
marvel through Teddy Roosevelts
childhood home in New York City.
Connect with your past at a place
that has special meaning to your
family history.
Discover an array of wildlife and
plant life and truly appreciate the
parks biodiversity. On your visit,
take a guided walk with a Park
Ranger. Be sure to look up, look
down and all around to make a game
of spotting as many species as you
can.
Encourage your children to con-
nect to the science, history and nat-
ural wonder of parks by becoming a
Junior Ranger, or if you cant make
it to the park, explore the We-
National Parks offer affordable Summer
fun close to home
bRanger program online.
Howd that boulder get there?
Discover the geology of canyons,
mountains and other scenic land-
scapes. National park visitor centers
can provide you with resources to
help you understand the ground
below you.
Challenge yourself to an outdoor
adventure like camping, biking or
rafting. Pick up skills like pitching a
tent and cooking outdoors.
National parks face many chal-
lenges, from threats to wildlife, to
the need for more funding. Learn
about these concerns and what you
can do to help locally and nationally.
Our national parks are the soul of
this country, says Tom Kiernan,
President of the National Parks Con-
servation Association. These are
special places that can inspire us
and connect us to nature and our
shared heritage.
The National Park System was
created with enjoyment in mind, so
plan a trip that will be fun for you
and your family. The good news is
that you might not need to travel far;
there may be one close to home. Plan
your trip at www.nps.gov/findapark.
The National Park System, which
covers over 83 million acres nation-
wide, preserves natural and histori-
cal sites, creates jobs, benefits local
economies, and educates a diverse
public. This summer, help protect its
future by fostering the next genera-
tion of park-lovers.

Matched Bronc Ride
sources of this nutrient. Diets rich
in potassium may help to maintain
healthy blood pressure and reduce
the risk of having a stroke.
Some individuals are surprised
to learn that youth and adults
need more of the dairy group than
children to promote good health.
Dairy choices should be low-fat or
fat-free to cut calories and satu-
rated fat. How much is needed?
Older children, teens and adults
need three cups a day, while chil-
dren four to eight years old need
two and one-half cups, and chil-
dren two to three years old need
two cups.
Tips for making wise choices in
the dairy group are as follows: In-
clude low-fat or fat-free milk or
calcium-fortified soymilk as a bev-
erage at meals. If you currently
drink whole milk, gradually switch
to lower fat versions. This change
cuts calories but doesnt reduce
calcium or other essential nutri-
ents. If you drink cappuccinos or
lattes ask for them with fat-free
milk (skim) milk. Make fruit-yo-
gurt smoothies in the blender.
Top fruit salads and baked pota-
toes with low-fat yogurt instead of
high fat toppings such as sour
cream. Plan to use plain yogurt in-
stead of sour cream for dip recipes.
Cant drink milk? If you avoid
milk because of lactose intoler-
ance, the most reliable way to get
the health benefits of dairy prod-
ucts is to choose lactose-free alter-
natives within the Dairy Group,
such as cheese, yogurt, lactose-free
milk, or calcium-fortified soymilk
(soy beverage) or consume the en-
zyme lactase before consuming
milk.
Milk matters. Parents who
drink milk and eat dairy foods
show their kids that it is impor-
tant. Go to: http://www.choosemy-
plate.gov/food-groups/dairy.html to
find out what foods are included in
the Dairy Group.

Summer means sunshine, relax-
ation and backyard barbecues. But it
also means the return of insect sea-
son. Homeowners work hard on their
backyards, but the nuisance of pesky
flying insects often prevent them
from enjoying their yards as much as
possible.
Not only are insects annoying,
they can be dangerous too. Stinging
insects send over 500,000 people to
the emergency room each year and
an estimated two million Americans
are allergic to insect stings.
Dont let bugs keep you from relax-
ing outdoors. Use these tips to take
back your yard from annoying pests.
Take back your backyard from
Insects this season
Eat More Garlic
Garlic is heralded for its ability to
ward off bloodsucking vampires; but
did you know eating garlic can repel
bloodsucking insects as well? Garlic
is excreted through the pores and
acts as a natural barrier to flying in-
sects who dont like the smell.
Eliminate Dangerous Flying In-
sects
The key to insect control is early
detection and elimination. Consider
using traps to eliminate bothersome
bugs. Not all traps are eyesores. For
example, the Black Flag Flying In-
sect Trap and Lure attracts, traps,
and kills wasps, yellow jackets and
flies, and can be hung in a tree or
staked in the ground; discreetly
blending into any outdoor setting.
Its also safe for your family and pets.
More information is available at
www.blackflag.com.
Wear Proper Clothes
Bees, wasps, and yellow jackets
are attracted to bright colors and flo-
ral patterns. The color black also
tends to irritate the insects. Wear
light colors such as khaki, beige, or
white to avoid being stung.
Grow Plants and Herbs
Certain plants and herbs, such as
rosemary, basil and thyme, emit
odors that ward off insects. Not only
will these plants help deter un-
wanted pests; youll also have some
fresh herbs ready for cooking right in
your backyard!
Grab a cold drink, kick back and
relax in your yard. You wont have
bugs to worry about anymore.

WASTA TOWN BOARD
OF TRuSTEES
JuNE 5, 2012
The Wasta Town Board held their reg-
ular meeting on Tuesday, June 5, 2012 at
the community building. Board Chairman
Justin Crawford called the meeting to
order at 7:40 pm with board members
Stan McNabb and Dorreen Skillingstad
present. Persons attending the meeting
were Barb Crawford, Dorothy Bathel, Gay
Hadlock, Tom & Arley Rancour, Kendall &
Keri Kjerstad, Kim Pavao, Angela Carter,
Tammy Green, Keri and Joyce Heriger,
Ray & Jamie Williams.
Motion by Justin, second by Dorreen to
approve the May 7th minutes as read.
Motion carried.

ried.
Various increases on property tax for
opt out was brought back for discussion.
Comments on who would benefit by the
increase and how it would be fair for
everyone were made. The consensus of
the board was not to move forward with
an Opt out.
Animal control was brought back for
discussion. Contracting with the Humane
Society was reviewed. The humane soci-
ety requires a shelter for the animal to be
kept out of the elements until they can
come down to pick up the animal. This is
not practical for Wasta. Persons in atten-
dance expressed concern with rabies and
the possibility of stray cats being infected.
Some people are considering trapping for
skunks and such on their own property. If
a stray cat is caught it will be impossible
to know if they are owned or a stray un-
less everyone will license and tag their
animals. Motion by Dorreen, second by
Stan to approve hanging a notice so peo-
ple are aware of the trapping and they will
have the opportunity to get their animals
licensed and tagged. Motion carried.
The Clean Up day was reported as
successful and gratitude was expressed
for everyone who helped with it. The
dumpster was utilized well and was the
consensus to contract for it each year.
Tammy turned in an invoice from Raci-
cky Plumbing on the curb stop replace-
ment for Ken Skillingstad. Motion by Dor-
reen, second by Justin to approve paying
the invoice to Racicky Plumbing for
$890.00. Motion carried. Tammy reported
the various shut offs around town have
been cleaned out and are working. It will
be reviewed whether more are needed
and to make a map of the water mains in
town and place the map on the commu-
nity building wall.
Motion by Dorreen, second by Stan to
approve Justin as the board chairman
and in charge of water issues, Stan in
charge of streets and Dorreen in charge
of animal control. Motion carried.
Angela Carter expressed concern with
a manhole on Elm Street that needs the
cover to be placed back on it. She stated
Tommy would be willing to place the
cover back on but explained it could
break in the process. The consensus was
the town would purchase a new one if it
breaks.
Angela requested an extension on a
building permit to remodel two trailers into
one home. Stan expressed concern on
the plumbing and wiring and whether it
will be up to code. Motion by Dorreen,
second by Justin to grant the extension.
Motion carried.
Motion by Justin, second by Stan to
approve the building permit for Dorreen
Skillingstad to build a gazebo. Motion car-
ried.
Kim Pavao expressed her gratitude for
the use of the community building for her
mothers service on Wednesday.
Carolynn explained while getting an
address for the new house for Derek and
Kortney Smid; 911 indicated the address-
ing in Wasta should be reviewed and
some changes made. Consensus of the
board was for Carolynn to proceed and
determine how many addresses may
need changed and report back.
With all business complete, Justin ad-
journed the meeting at 9:08pm.

C Anderson commented on the proceed-
ing litigation of a tourist falling in the Main

Update on the Fourth Street property was
that some trash was taken out of the yard
but most of it is still there. The city cannot
simply clean up the property, a court
order must be first in hand.
The local driver for the transit bus is no
longer employed. We know have a Philip
driver. Business for the bus is picking up,
they have an agreement to take the
WASP kids to the pool all summer.
Motion by S Anderson, second by Mor-
gan to approve creating new Progress
Committee of M Anderson and Leonard.
Motion carried. The committee will review
the progress on an itemized cleanup list

and address any new issues that need to
be added to the list.
Clark stated that nearly all water valves
have been turned. Tree removals have
been taken off of the clean up list. The
sewer line behind Anns Motel is cleaned.
Everyone has been doing a good job of
keeping the grease traps cleaned.
John Kitterman noted that the Fire De-
partment incurred unexpected expenses;
that is turbo charger on the rescue rig
went out at a cost of $4500. Presently the
WFD cannot afford to proceed with secu-
rity system at fire department. Agrant will
be pursued next year when they are
available.
An item of discussion was included
checking the insurance liability of specific
breeds of dogs. The item will be on the
agenda for the July council meeting.
Motion by S Anderson, second by Mor-
gan to move the July council meeting to
July 9th at 6:30 pm. Motion carried.
Motion by S Anderson, second by M An-
derson to move to Executive Session for
the purpose of discussing legal
issues/personnel/marketing according to
SDLC 1-25-2 at 9:15 pm. Motion carried.

Out of executive sessions at 9:53 pm,

NOTICE OF PuBLIC
MEETING
JACKSON COuNTY DRIVERS
LICENSE SERVICES
The Jackson County Commissioners are
holding a public meeting at 8:00 p.m., Fri-
day, June 29, 2012 in the Courtroom of
the Jackson County Courthouse, 700
Main Street, Kadoka, SD. The purpose
of the meeting is to obtain public input as
to whether Jackson County should con-
tinue to provide drivers licensing services
for the S. D. Department of Public Safety.
In 2004 Jackson County entered into an
agreement with the S. D. Department of
Public Safety to provide driver licensing
services for the State of South Dakota.
At the time Jackson County entered into
the agreement with the State, the State
provided driver licensing services in sur-
rounding communities. The State has re-
duced or eliminated the service provided
in those communities. This has created
a larger work load for the Jackson County
office(s) providing the services, and the
cost to Jackson County is greater than
the $5.00 per license fee that Jackson
County retains for providing the service.
Jackson County is considering hiring ad-
ditional staff for the increased work load.
Citizens come from up to one hundred
miles away to obtain their drivers li-
censes in Jackson County, and many
chose to come to Jackson County instead
of going to the state sites in other com-
munities, Pierre or Rapid City.
Jackson County requested that Jackson
County be allowed to retain one-half of
the license fees. The state has denied
the request. State law does not allow the
county to charge an additional fee.
If additional funding is not found, the
Jackson County Commissioners are con-
sidering discontinuing the driver licensing
services.

QUESTION: Like everyone else,
I constantly feel as if I dont have
enough hours in my day. Meanwhile,
Ive read lots of articles and been in
on lots of conversations about the
relative merits of quality and quan-
tity "family time." As a parent, this
debate is of vital importance to me,
but I dont know how to resolve it.
Everyone in our house keeps a hectic
schedule, and sometimes I find my-
self wondering: just how important
is "family time" when you're simply
trying to make ends meet and get
through the demands of the day?
Can you shed any light on this prob-
lem for me?
ANSWER: Family time is impor-
tant and has to incorporate elements
of both quality and quantity.
Quantity time creates a safe envi-
ronment where youngsters can feel
accepted and valued for who they
are. It communicates availability,
fosters a sense of security, and estab-
lishes a solid home base from which
children can launch out into the
world with confidence and strength.
Quality time, on the other hand, is
essential to the process of family
bonding. Its the stuff of which rela-
tionships are made, the polished
gem that caring parents fashion
from the raw material of moments,
hours, and days spent together. The
thing to note is that its difficult to
have the one without the other. The
more family time we create, the
more opportunities we have to touch
each others lives in profound ways.
You cant seize the day if youre not
there to do the seizing, and it isnt al-
ways possible to cram meaningful
memories and life-changing conver-
sations into a few minutes of con-
trived quality time.
None of this happens automati-
cally, of course. Its entirely possible
for a family to spend lots of time to-
gether and come away the worse for
it, especially if their interactions are
marred by constant strife, anxiety, or
abuse. The key to success is inten-
tionalitya determination to be
present in the moment and to make
the most of every circumstance.
Contemporary marriages and
families lack timequality and
quantityfor a number of reasons.
An endless pursuit of material
things requires increasing amounts
of money, which translates into more
hours at work. Busyness creates fa-
tigue and deflects attention from
pressing relational issues. Couples
grow apart as their lives travel
down separate but parallel tracks.
Moms and dads model a task-ori-
ented mentality that communicates
an unmistakable message to their
kids: take care of your duties and ob-
ligations first, then feel free to re-
treat into your own (electronic) stim-
ulation, recreation, or leisure-time
activity (read: isolation in your own
room).
If you want to escape this numb-
ing pattern, you may need to revamp
your schedule and engage in some
serious lifestyle planning. Go back to
Square One, revisit your basic val-
ues and priorities, and resolve to
make some countercultural choices
and decisions if necessary. Take
steps to reduce your outside commit-
ments and block out weekly family
time on the calendar. Dont worry
about how it looks to other people
if you limit yourselves to one or two
selections from a long list of worth-
while church activities. Resist the
temptation to sign your kids up for
numerous sports teams, music and
dance lessons, social clubs, and all
kinds of community organizations
one activity per season per child
maybe more than enough. Carve out
spaces, create margins, and dont be
afraid of "voids." Agree to turn off all
communications devices at certain
times of the day or on certain days of
the week. Instead of watching TV,
read together, play board games,
take a walk to a local park, or sit and
talk. Get into your kids space, hang
out with them, and find out what ex-
cites them. This is all part of the
process of turning quantity into
quality time.
Meanwhile, dont forget to take
full advantage of simple everyday in-
teractions. Drive time, mealtime,
meal preparation, bath time, bed-
timeall can become opportunities
for shared discoveries and precious,
unforeseen, and unique conversa-
tions between parent and child. Its
a matter of learning to savor lifes or-
dinary moments. Most children find
just as much, or even more, joy in
the little things as they do in lifes
big events. Activities like eating a
special breakfast of chocolate-chip
pancakes, picking out the perfect
backpack for the first day of school,
or singing silly songs in the car could
turn out to be some of the most
memorable highlights of your kids
childhood years.
QUESTION: I've received a lot of
conflicting answers to the following
question: is the quality of time I
spend with my family more impor-
tant than the quantity? What do you
say?
ANSWER: We don't think so. A
few years ago family experts were
preaching that what's important is
"quality time," not "quantity time."
More recent research shows that
kids need both "quality" and "quan-
tity" time with their parents. In fact,
the more involved parents are with
their children - and the word "more"
here is used with direct reference to
the concept of quantity - the less
likely they are to have social, emo-
tional, or academic problems, use
drugs or alcohol, become involved in
crime, or engage in premarital sex.
You have to bear in mind that it's
not always possible to plan meaning-
ful interactions between parent and
child. Such serendipitous moments
can't be cooked up and crammed into
a few minutes of "quality time" every
day. Many critical opportunities to
teach or model moral values may
catch you off-guard and will be gone
in the blink of an eye. You can't seize
the moment if you're not there to do
the seizing. And that means spend-
ing lots of "quantity" time together
with your kids.
Without more detailed informa-
tion about your family situation it's
hard to know exactly what else to
tell you. But your inquiry leads us to
believe that you may need to re-ex-
amine your priorities. The very fact
that you're thinking in terms of
"quality" vs. "quantity" indicates
that you're looking to justify spend-
ing smaller amounts of time with
your family. Is this supposition any-
where near the truth?
If you're not sure, you can put the
matter to the test by asking yourself
a few simple questions. Is your em-
ployment outside the home a matter
of providing for basic needs, or are
you driven by materialistic desires
or a longing for personal signifi-
cance? Are there any aspects of
"maintaining a household" that you
can afford to sacrifice? Do you attach
a greater value to status or appear-
ance than to the well-being of the
people with whom you share your
life? After all, a spotless home isn't
nearly as important as a close rela-
tionship with your spouse and chil-
dren.
Another suggestion: one of the
easiest ways to make more time for
loved ones is to turn off the TV. In
the average American home, the tel-
evision is on 49 hours a week. By
way of contrast, the average amount
of time that both parents spend in
meaningful conversation with their
children is 39 minutes a week. If you
need more time with your spouse
and your kids, make the obvious
choice. Instead of watching TV, read
together, play board games together,
take a walk to a local park, or sit and
talk.
If you have children, it's also im-
portant to avoid the temptation to
get them overly involved in activities
outside the home. Some parents feel
pressure to sign their children up for
numerous sports teams, music and
dance lessons, social clubs, and all
kinds of community organizations.
Don't fall prey to this mindset. Kids
don't need a dozen different weekly
activities. They need quality and
quantity time with loving, involved,
and committed parents.
