The management and operation
of the Stroppel Inn in Midland has
been taken over by Kathy Jensen.
The message that Jensen is
stressing is everything is still open
and going. It is still operating as a
hotel and a hot mineral bath spa,
and has the same phone number of
843-2802. The businesss website,, still an-
nounces it as the Stroppel Inn
home of the hot mineral baths,
Midlandss premier hotel and spa.
Jensens interest in the business
came through her other enterprise,
the Bio-shi Institute. Its a family
owned business, and we have an
accredited college of massage ther-
apy mind and body connection
massage therapy, said Jensen.
Now its all going to be inte-
grated, said Cory Ruth, son-in-law
and partner. Were in this transi-
tion state. We want people to be
here and watch as we make
changes. We want to do a little bit
of renovation, said Ruth. He
added, Just a little bit of work
clean up the plunges, window
work make it so it can take a lit-
tle more use. A third partner is
Robin Freeman.
Jensen said, Its a natural re-
source; the mineral content and the
healing of the water. She said that
a Stroppel Inn brochure given to
her a long time ago kept popping
up in different drawers and cup-
boards. She eventually visited Mid-
land, and that first visit grew to be
four or five days. Later, she
brought educational class students
for training and working with hy-
drotherapy. It was just what I was
supposed to do. I was just trusting
what needs to happen, said
Jensen. Now operating the inn, she
said, We have people calling ask-
ing for massage therapy with the
baths, we can provide that.
Jensen said, Thats probably
one of the attractions; it feels like
family. We want people to have
that feeling when they get here.
As of the first of June, the previ-
ous managers, Rueben, Jr. and Pat
Vollmer are living their dream.
Weve been looking to go do some-
thing else, to move to a ranch just
north of Midland, said Vollmer.
Well be country folk. Weve been
running cows for quite a while. The
wife and I and our youngest son
run the operation. She will still
have a beauty shop; couple of grand
kids; youngest son getting mar-
ried its time we free ourselves up
a little bit. Running a hotel is 24/7.
According to Vollmer, when the
new managers/operators called and
inquired, the Vollmers already had
leaving the responsibility in mind.
Theyre pretty excited about tak-
ing over, and the water is a big part
of the therapy. I anticipate things
to grow. Its a soft water mineral
well. This one comes out at 119 de-
grees. It has a lot of healing factors
with it, said Vollmer.
Theres parts of it well miss.
Weve met some great people. With
the baths, theres time when eight
to 10 to 12 people will show up.
Some of the athletes come; (then)
they come back the next week.
Weve had a lot of people say Mid-
land is a gold mine, we just have to
know how to market it. Our num-
ber-one thing is we want to see it
continue, said Vollmer.
The three new managers/opera-
tors came up and got, shall we say,
in tune with the operation a bit,
said Vollmer. This lady and this
party is the niche we need. Were
pretty excited.
The website sums up the atmos-
phere the new managers/operators
wish to continue. If you're looking
for charming, restful hotel accom-
modations in the Dakotas, contact
us today at Stroppel Inn. Come
visit us today and enjoy a truly
pleasurable sojourn in the country.
We offer one of the most distinc-
tive inn experiences in the region.
You'll appreciate our country quiet
atmosphere. When you come to
stay with us, we guarantee we'll do
everything we can to make your
stay as enjoyable as possible.

A statewide, county-by-county
conversation about strengthening
health and retirement security
called You've Earned a Say was
held by AARP South Dakota in
Philip, Thursday morning, June
14, at Pizza Etc.
Haakon County was the 27th
session out of all 66 South Dakota
counties. We always know some-
thing good is going on in Philip,
said Sarah Jennings, director for
AARP SD, referring to the meet-
ings, projects and activities done by
the local AARP, headed by Mike
and Marcia West.
The goal of the discussions is to
take the future of Medicare and So-
cial Security out from behind
closed doors in Washington and
make South Dakotans a part of the
discussion about the future of these
programs. The conversation was
open to the public, not only AARP
When asked the biggest chal-
lenges facing Medicare, individuals
mentioned rising health care costs,
not enough funding to pay future
benefits, fewer workers paying into
the system, a growing senior popu-
lation and fraud. Mike West said,
Once someone turns in a claim,
there has to be some kind of check
to make sure that claim actually
happened. Don Ferguson said, If
you go into a store in Rapid City
and buy something, the know
everything about you. And the gov-
ernment doesnt know this (how to
check on fraud)?
Bob McDaniels voiced his nega-
tive opinion about the current tax-
ing system, but we are talking
about Social Security here. It has
to be strengthened for my children
and grandchildren.
Ferguson voiced his concern
about possibly raising the age for
retirement and for Social Security.
Some people who work manual
labor, they cant do that, he said.
If people retire later, especially
after working hard, then they
dont live as long, Ferguson said
about enjoying retirement.
Carol _______ said, Every time
they do give us a cost of living
raise, immediately the premiums
go up and everything else. I actu-
ally go in the hole when they in-
crease my Social Security.
Concerning the drain on Amer-
icas Social Security, Don Olivier
said, No person who is not a citi-
zen should be able to draw Social
All comments, though not the
specific speakers, were recorded by
Jennings and AARP Associate
State Director Erik Gailowski. The
information will be sent into Wash-
ington. Theyve already received
about half a million copies of our
responses, said Jennings. The
final discussion session will be at
the South Dakota State Fair, Au-
gust 30.
In South Dakota, 137,314 peo-
ple rely on Medicare for their
health coverage, and 153,508 peo-
ple receive Social Security benefits.
The average monthly Social Se-
curity benefit for individuals in
South Dakota is a little more than
Almost 19 percent of South
Dakotans receiving Social Security
rely on the benefit for 90 percent or
more of their retirement income,
while 45.4 percent rely on Social
security for 50 percent or more of
their retirement income.
"These sessions are truly listen-
ing sessions," said Jennings. The
debate over how to protect and
strengthen Medicare and Social
cant be done in secret. South
Dakotans have worked too hard to
let the next president and congress
make decisions about the future of
Medicare and Social Security with-
out hearing from the people who
rely on these programs for their
health and financial security in re-

From 1990 through 2011, there
were 110 animals from Haakon
County officially tested for rabies.
Only nine of these animals tested
positive approximately eight per-
The last rabies positive animal
was in 1999. There were no posi-
tives in 2000 or 2011. Last year,
2011, there were two Haakon
County animals submitted for test-
ing; neither were rabid.
So far this year, there have been
three confirmed rabid animals
from Haakon County. In April a
skunk was confirmed, in May a cow
tested positive, and in June an-
other cow was confirmed as being
This is according to information
supplied by Lon Kightlinger, state
epidemiologist for the South
Dakota Department of Health. He
said that rabies is a fatal disease
transfered by a bite, or by a scratch
that includes saliva from the in-
fected animal.
There are only two facilities in
South Dakota that test for rabies,
the public health laboratory in
Pierre and the animal veterinary
diagnostic lab at South Dakota
State University in Brookings. If
the head of the animal suspected of
having rabies is delivered to the
public health lab in the morning,
results can be determined before
the end of the day.
Theres not that much rush.
Though rabies can be fatal, it is a
slow acting virus, said
Kightlinger. Its an urgency, but
something you can manage.
Kightlinger said that, ideally,
the test should be conducted within
10 days. An animal, such as a dog
or cat, suspected of having rabies is
often quarantined for 10 days while
authorities watch for common ra-
bies symptoms such as change in
behavior, flopping around or act-
ing crazy.
Jim Stangle is the veterinarian
based out of Milesville. If you see
a suspect wild animal, dont ask
questions, just shoot it, said Stan-
gle. If you kill a suspect animal, do
not shoot it in the head. If you cant
get hold of a vet, it has to be refrig-
erated until you do. He said that
testing by the state lab is free if
there is human exposure.
Stangle noted, We have more
human exposure with cattle. Its
that you just dont think of rabies
with cattle. Because one of the
symptoms of rabies is choke, you
think there is something in the
cows throat or mouth. The rancher
catches the cow and finds nothing,
then thinks of rabies.
If a human has been confirmed
to having been exposed to rabies,
the old cure required a medical reg-
imen of a dozen painful shots in the
abdomen, dragged out over several
weeks. Today, only five shots are
required. The first is a simple im-
munoglobulin shot, which the
amount is determined by the pa-
tients weight, and given at the
penetration site of the infection.
The next four shots are given in the
arm over the next two week period.
If youve ever gotten a flu shot, its
like that. It doesnt hurt any more,
said Kightlinger. Its going to cost
you over $1,000.
Up to about five years ago, rabies
was always fatal. Now it does not
have to be, if you do super heroic
therapy, but generally people do
not survive rabies, said
Kightlinger. We havent had a
fatal case of rabies in humans in 42
years (when specific diagnostic
records began being kept). We
must be doing something right.
Stangle added, The primary
reason for vaccinating your pets is
they provide a barrier between
wild animals and you. He said
that dogs usually become infected
by skunks and cats usually by bats.
Kightlinger said that skunks
are the reservoir of rabies in South
Dakota. Skunks seem to carry ra-
bies a little longer, and they give it
to their offspring which can pass it
on before their deaths. A rabid
skunk may come out in the day-
light, will become very aggressive
and act crazy. Sometimes an at-
tacking skunk has to be hatcheted
off of the human being attacked.
Earlier this summer, Haakon
County resident George Gittings
experienced an encounter with a
skunk that was later confirmed to
be infected with rabies. He said
that he was at a fence gate when
the skunk surprised him and got
hold of the pants leg of his bibbed
I couldnt get him off. I kicked
him and stepped on his tail. He had
a hold as far as he could reach. I
danced a good diddy for about five
minutes, said Gittings. Finally
dragging the attacking skunk over
to the pickup, Gittings used a wire
stretcher to kill the skunk. Amaz-
ingly, Gittings was not bitten or
even scratched. If itd been regular
overalls, he would have gotten
through to me. Because of the con-
firmation of rabies, Gittings said
that his livestock were then quar-
antined and he could not sell any
for a months time.
Gittings told of a neighbor who
discovered that he had a rabid calf.
The calfs head was sent in for test-
ing and the results were positive.
The neighbor, who had worked
with the calf along with his other
livestock, decided, rather than take
a chance, to go through with the ra-
bies regimen of shots.
Kightlinger said his department
does not take rabies lightly. In
harder to determine cases, such as
a child waking up with a dead bat
nearby and the bat is disposed of
before testing, then the decision
about the treatment regimen is
made between the physician and
the patient. In the case of an in-
fected cow, where cow slobber has
gotten on the rancher but no cuts
were present, then taking the shot
regimen is up to the rancher.
Some people cant handle the risk
and are so scared they take the
shots, said Kightlinger.

Midwest Cooperative in Philip had two 100-ton feed ingredient bins installed near
its grain elevators, Friday, June 29. Shown is the first being set up. This will allow
us to bring in some additional feed ingredients for us to serve our producers,
said Philip site manager Jay Baxter. The more storage we get, the more we can
look for more cost efficient ways to feed cattle. Photo by Del Bartels

During Monday, June 18, everyone at the Philip swimming pool was offered a sun
safety demonstration. There were over 150 snowcones given out, and there were
games, crafts and prizes. A lesson on the importance of sunscreen was given by
Tandis Hoffman and Kim Livingston. On Wednesday, June 20, they also hosted a
social breakfast in the Philip Nursing Home dining room. They discussed their
projects in the Philip area during their Rural Experiences for Health Professions
Students. The goal of REHPS is to increase the number of health professionals
in the states rural areas. The program encourages the building of relationships
between medical students and rural communities. Hoffman and Livingston
learned from local doctors Dave Holman and Ceon Klopper, and physician assis-
tants Terry Henrie, Janell Gerberding and Dave Webb. They visited the Philip Nurs-
ing Home, Silverleaf, Community Health, KGFX Radio, Kadoka Clinic and the var-
ious aspects of Philip Health Services, Inc. Courtesy photos

Dote responsibly ... by Del Bartels
I once excelled at so many things basketball, debate, sharpshoot-
ing now I drop basketballs easier than bounce them, lose arguments
with myself, and havent seen anything but a deers running rump for
several hunting seasons. I am trying to hold on to the memory of my
exceptional glory by living vicariously through my kids. You may think
that comes with old age, but, first, you have to have some years in order
to have kids, and I hear that you have to have some more years to have
grandkids. By then, youre worn out.
I cheer on the Red Sox because I still want to be on the winning side,
even if my own side now rolls clear around to my front. I cheer on Dale
Earnhardt, Jr., though the local cop wants to take away my license be-
cause my slow driving is a traffic hazard. I cheer on the high school
basketball team, because I used to be young and athletic once ... I think.
I cheer on my children, because I love them and its the right thing to
do, but also because what talents and dedication they display are got-
ten from me. Hey, you believe what you want to and Ill believe my
truth. I used to be able to outrun my son. He started becoming more of
a challenge when the diapers no longer slowed him down. Now I wear
a face mask while jogging so his dust doesnt sting so much.
My superior mental ability still allows me to beat my children at
cards and board games. I was smoking them at Hearts, mostly because
they mistakenly thought we were playing Wist. They finally admitted
defeat when I began decimating them and hogging the cards at 52-Card
Pickup. My son wont play scrabble with me anymore because of my
renowned vocabulary, even if the dictionary labels most of my words
as archaic usage. I have taught him to throw the ol pigskin and the
ol rawhide, but he wants to throw footballs and baseballs instead.
When I was teaching him to bat, he admitted I have the most devas-
tating drop ball he has ever seen.
We like to hike. The 50-mile, full backpack, double-time fun times of
my youth have been scaled way back for him to under 20 miles. He in-
sists that we even carry water bottles, something about that water
helps quiet my enthusiastic wheezing. We enjoy the wildlife; he says
they come out of hiding to see why Im crawling on the ground. He
should laugh, he gets to sleep while I drive home (and avoid the local
cop). Soon he will be asking me to teach him to drive. He might as well
learn from the best. Many years ago I taught him to ride a bicycle. We
should go riding together again, him on his Schwinn and me on my
Harley-Davidson. We already have plans to go camping. I used to take
nothing but a pocket knife, but a compromise for his sake might include
a reservation at a Hilton with a swimming pool.
I once was the best. Now my son can learn from me so one day he
can take over. Such perfection will probably be impossible, but I will
always cheer him on in his endeavor to be as excellent as his father.
other, I have struggled with all of
these types of fear in my life and I
have overcome them simply by fac-
ing them head on. It has not always
been easy, and has always required
that I persevere. Sometimes the old
fears I previously faced and con-
quered have even flared up again,
and I have had to deal with them
again. Being bold and courageous
does not come easily, but the more
I face my fears, the more courage I
If you are struggling with fear, I
encourage you to start talking to
yourself in a most forceful manner
regarding the action steps you must
and will take to shift your thinking
about these fears. Then, do the
thing you have feared to do. What's
the worst thing that could happen?
Is the worst case scenario really
worse than going through life being
afraid? Probably not.
In order to truly face your fear,
you must really get to know it. Iden-
tify the basis of your fear; is it based
on the truth, a lie, a feeling or a
past experience? Then remind your-
self that fear is causing your mind
to work in reverse, so the sooner
you can get your mind moving in a
more forward direction, the better.
Be willing to take a risk, face your
fear by hitting it head on.
For instance, if you are afraid to
speak in front of people, than look
for opportunities to get up in front
of others. The next time someone
asks you to address a group, say
you will, instead of just making ex-
cuses. Sure it will be tough, but re-
member that your benefit will be
greater confidence and personal
growth. Every time you face your
fear, your fear level decreases, until
it is no longer a thing that you fear.
After you've conquered one fear,
then hit the next one that is holding
you back. You'll quickly discover
that facing your fears will build
your confidence. So get your head
on straight today!
So, what is it that you think is
lurking under your bed, and hold-
ing you back from the success you
desire? Go ahead and take a look to
find out. Take that step of faith. I
guarantee that when you face your
fear, the death of fear is certain!
Face your fear
As I was concluding a conference
session, an attendee asked me how
I got into the business of being a
motivational speaker. Good ques-
tion, I responded. I went on to say
that I looked under the bed.
It all began when I was about five
years old, and I was so afraid of
what lived under my bed. I was par-
alyzed in fear. Quite awhile later, I
finally got up the courage to look
under my bed, and do you know
what I found? Nothing. There were
no monsters! My fear was false, not
true at all.
Years later, I realized how much
my belief in the reality of those
under-the-bed monsters had af-
fected my attitudes. I was full of
dread of what might happen to me,
until I discovered that when I
peeked under the bed, and found
nothing at all, that I was free of the
I knew that fear could hold me
back from the success I desired in
my life, so I started telling myself
every day, Face your fear, and the
death of fear is certain. I also
began to tell myself I could do any-
thing I put my mind to. I then set
out on a life-long mission of helping
others overcome their fears by fac-
ing them.
Of course, make believe monsters
are not all we fear in life. Theres
the fear of the unknown, the fear of
failure, the fear of change, the fear
of what people may think of you,
the fear of what people may say
about you, the fear of success, the
fear of lack of control, the fear that
you may not know what to do. Ob-
viously, the list could go on and on.
Understand that any one of these
fears, or others you may think of,
has the capability of paralyzing a
person, causing them to be unable
to move forward.
Fear is a negative emotion having
tremendous control over us, that
can range from experiencing appre-
hension, to being overly anxious, to
feeling down right terrified of some-
one or something. The truth about
a lot of our fears is that they very
rarely come true. Simply put, fear
is very often False Evidence Ap-
pearing Real

Attorney General Marty J. Jack-
ley has announced that the United
States Supreme Courts ruling
striking provisions of the Arizona
Immigration Law does not affect
existing South Dakota law or en-
forcement efforts.
While a state should be able to
extend its enforcement efforts
when federal authorities fail to re-
spond, the Supreme Court has for-
tunately rejected the federal gov-
ernments dangerous position that
the power to regulate immigration
is vested exclusively in the federal
government, stated Jackley.
South Dakota presently enjoys
and will strive to continue our tra-
dition of cooperative immigration
enforcement with our local federal
partners, which is supported by the
language and directive of todays
Arizona decision.
In 2010, the federal government
filed suit challenging Arizonas new
law governing state immigration

Oil Spills and Farms:
Protecting Your Business
Farms now have less than one
year to prepare or amend and im-
plement their Spill Prevention,
Control, and Countermeasure
(SPCC) Plans. The compliance date
for farms is May 10, 2013.
You need an SPCC plan if: an oil
spill from your farm could reach
water and you store oil (diesel,
gasoline, hydraulic oil, lube oil,
crop oil or vegetable oil, etc. in
aboveground quantities of more
than 1,320 gallons, or completely
buried tanks of more than 42,000
gallons. For more information or to

Livestock Water Testing
Just to remind producers that
all of the regional extension centers
and many county4-H offices have
handheld electrical conductivity
meters and welcome samples.
These meters provide an instant
analysis of total salt content that
might cause problems for livestock
drinking the water, and at no cost
to the producer.
Rural water and pipelines have
reduced the dependence on water
in stock dams for many producers,
but if you rely on stock dams, test-
ing the water will help avoid per-
formance and health problems.
Elevated salt levels may suggest
that producers should submit a
sample to a laboratory for a more
detailed analysis, which can deter-
mine the makeup of the salts, and
the sulfate portion of the total salt
content, which can cause specific
problems such as polio.

Extension News
by Bob Fanning
Field Specialist, Winner
Regional Extension Center
The Senate completed work on
the Agriculture Reform, Food and
Jobs Act of 2012 (Farm Bill), July
21, and passed the measure by a
64-35 vote.
As a member of the Senate Com-
mittee on Agriculture, Nutrition
and Forestry, Senator John Thune
(R-SD) helped draft a farm bill that
reforms or eliminates current pro-
grams. The Congressional Budget
Office (CBO) projects this bill will
provide a savings of over $23.6 bil-
lion over the next 10 years com-
pared to current policy.
Todays Senate vote to pass a re-
form focused farm bill is an impor-
tant victory for Americas farmers
and consumers, said Thune. This
bill exceeds our $23 billion savings
goal under last years Budget Con-
trol Act, provides a strong safety
net for farmers and ranchers only
when it is needed, and consolidates
and makes common-sense improve-
ments to conservation programs.
Thune played a key role in de-
signing the Commodity Title of the
bill which eliminates the Direct
and Counter-cyclical payment pro-
grams and the Average Crop Rev-
enue Election (ACRE) program at
a savings of over $50 billion and re-
places them with a new Average
Risk Coverage (ARC) program (at
a cost of $28.9 billion). The ARC
program payments may not exceed
$50,000 per entity, or $100,000 for
a husband and wife operation. The
Commodity Title ARC program
was created using the Aggregate
Revenue and Risk Management
(ARRM) program Senator Thune
introduced late last year and which
was scored by CBO as saving more
than $20 billion over 10 years.
A Thune amendment resulted in
a U.S. Department of Agriculture
study that must be completed be-
fore a $750,000 average adjusted
gross income (AGI) limitation for
producers who purchase crop in-
surance could become effective
largely due to concerns that such a
limitation would change the insur-
ance risk pool and negatively im-
pact producers who have an AGI
below $750,000.
The bill would combine the cur-
rent 23 conservation programs into
13 and extend the Conservation
Reserve Program (CRP) through
2017. The CRP enrollment cap will
be reduced to 25 million acres by
Current crop insurance policy
encourages the conversion of native
sod and grassland to commodity
crop production. A Thune amend-
ment was accepted which will re-
duce the amount of crop insurance
premium assistance for four years
on crops grown on native sod and
longstanding grasslands and re-
duce indemnity levels to match the
productivity of the insured land, in
order to discourage abuse and con-
version of grasslands to cropland
for crop insurance benefits. This
will save nearly $200 million over
10 years.
Based on a bill Thune introduced
to address the pine beetle infesta-
tion, language was included in the
Forestry Title that requires the
Secretary of Agriculture to desig-
nate at least one national forest in
each state within 60 days of enact-
ment of this bill as a special treat-
ment area based on declining forest
health (such as the pine beetle epi-
demic in the Black Hills) if re-
quested by the governor of the
state. The Senate agreed to an
amendment by Senator Mark
Udall (D-CO), cosponsored by
Thune, to authorize $200 million
for each Fiscal Year 2013 through
2017 for this provision.
The 2008 Farm Bill Authoriza-
tion expires on September 30, 2012
and unless President Obama signs
a new farm bill into law, or if the
current farm bill is not extended by
that date, the 1949 Act would go
into effect.
U.S. Senator Tim Johnson (D-
SD) said, The Senate has done its
work. The House Agriculture Com-
mittee needs to move a farm bill so
that we can give our producers cer-
Agriculture is South Dakotas
number one industry and our
states biggest economic driver. It
generates over $20 billion annually
in economic activity in our state.
The Senate bill takes several
steps to ensure the continued in-
tegrity of our farm programs. We
eliminate direct payments and es-
tablish a new Agriculture Risk
Coverage (ARC) program that will
help address losses not covered by
crop insurance. At the same time,
we maintain a strong crop insur-
ance program, which producers
have told me time and time again
is the most critical risk manage-
ment tool.
The underlying bill contains a
cap of $50,000 on the new ARC pro-
gram, and we passed Senator
Grassley and my amendment with
overwhelming support to establish
a cap on marketing loan gains. The
bill also takes steps to close loop-
holes which have allowed non-
farmers to receive payments.
The Farm Bill includes several
provisions Johnson worked with
colleagues to make sure were in-
cluded in a final version, including:
Strong Payment Limits The
bill includes the Grassley/Johnson
$250,000 total cap Senators
Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and John-
son offered an amendment to cap
marketing loan gains at $75,000
(doubled if a spouse is involved in
the operation). The amendment
passed 75-24. The final bill now in-
cludes a $250,000 cap, as has been
included in legislation that Grass-
ley and Johnson offered earlier this
Mandatory Rural Development
Funding Johnson cosponsored an
amendment to provide $150 mil-
lion in mandatory funding for a va-
riety of USDA programs: $50 mil-
lion for the Value-Added Producer
Grant Program; $50 million for the
water and wastewater backlog; $15
million for the Rural Micro-entre-
preneur Assistance Program; and
$35 million for the Beginning
Farmer and Rancher Development
Program. The amendment passed
Pine Beetle Funding The Sen-
ate bill provides for the designation
of treatment areas on national
forests experiencing declining for-
est health from insect of disease in-
festation, including the mountain
pine beetle. Treatments on desig-
nated areas could be carried out
with expedited processes in accor-
dance with the Healthy Forest
Restoration Act. Johnson and
Thune cosponsored an amendment
to increase authorized funding for
such treatments from $100 million
to $200 million. The amendment
passed 77-22.
Rural Housing Fix Some com-
munities may become ineligible for
USDA Rural Housing Service pro-
grams on October 1. Johnson
cosponsored an amendment to ex-
tend eligibility for existing commu-
nities until completion of the next
census. The amendment, passed by
voice vote, maintains a strong crop
insurance program, eliminates di-
rect payments,and closes loopholes
the bill includes language to en-
sure that actual farmers receive

Saturday, June 23, at Somerset
Court, we had morning exercises at
10:00. For lunch we had two red-
neck dishes, French fries and
baked beans, and an elegant
chicken cordon bleu. M.R. Hansen
came for lunch and scrabble. We
continued his research into which
resident prefers which tractor,
from old days on the farm or ranch.
M.R. and I sat with Thelma
Frame and she kindly shared a few
highlights of her life story. She
grew up near Faith and graduated
from high school there. She at-
tended Spearfish Teachers College
and taught school for two and a
half years. She married Jim
Frame, who grew up on Rat-
tlesnake Creek, only 12 miles
away. This was in 1941 and the
marriage lasted 64 years and three
days. They had three sons, one who
lives at Whitewood and works on
transmissions, one lives on the
East Coast and another on the
West Coast. They will all be here in
July. Thelma remembers tractors,
especially Farmalls and Caterpil-
lars, as they built dams and
Irene McKnight brought over a
list of tractors for M.R. and a quote:
Ford 88000, John Deere 2950 and
2040, and New Holland 7V145. Her
husband, Royal McKnight also did
dirt work building dams and level-
ing land. Royal and his brother,
Arthur, also ran sheep near Albion,
M.R. and I related to the dirt
work, as my father-in-law, Ralph
Hansen, of near Philip, and his
sons, Bob, (Russell) Cecil, Virgil,
Tody (Ralph Jr.), Dean who was
called Deano, Kenneth and Keith
who were twins, Dale and Philip,
built dams all over Haakon
County. They used Caterpillars.
Philip, being the youngest, usually
stayed home and ran the ranch.
My husband, Virgil Hansen, had
a little Farmall tractor to dig post
holes with. When he got out of the
Army, he developed a sign busi-
ness. Some of the first signs were
on three boards and were mounted
on two posts. He would set the
signs up beside the highway. Our
boys, Wayne, M.R., Leslie, Frank,
David, and Hans, helped as soon as
they were big enough. Age five or
six, to hear them tell it!
Over the weekend, Irene McK-
night and Gloria Crumet went to a
big church picnic at Sturgis. There
they met acquaintances from long
ago. Kids who had been in Sun-
day school with Gloria.
The only mail I received Satur-
day was Sheridans makeup cata-
log. It is said that the worse times
are, the more people turn to cos-
metics and alcohol. The difference
is that alcohol only deadens the
misery for a little while, while the
cosmetics lift ones spirits every-
day. When you put on your pink
cheeks and your eye liner, it make
you feel special and then with a
smile, you meet other smiles.
You might enjoy this link to
kaleidoscope. I like it over and
over: It was sent to me by
my nephew, Leonard Meyer,
Greenfield, Ind.
Sunday, I phoned my son, Hans
P. Hansen, at Spruce House, 2535
Brady Drive, Colorado Springs,
Colo. 80917. But Hans was gone to
church. I left a message that I
wanted to tell Hans thank you for
his hand-painted birthday card
that had a bizzy, buzzy bee on it. It
said, Hey, Im bizzy, Im 93. And
I wanted to tell him that the kalan-
choe he sent for Mothers Day is
doing fine.
I walked around outside of Som-
erset Court castle and saw that the
scrubby ash tree on the south side
in the undeveloped area, that has
been trying to die for two years, is
now coming up in a pretty green
bush. And there was purple alfalfa
in bloom and lawn clover, and dan-
delions and creeping jinny.
Sunday, June 24, Rev. Richard-
son spoke on in the beginning. He
quoted the Bible and urged us to
read and believe. Mrs. Richardson
sang How Great Thou Art in her
rich contralto. Thank you both and
thank you to Jack Humke for play-
ing hymns for singing.
Happy birthday to Larry Solano,
June 25.
June 25, at Somerset Court, we
had the fun activity of Wheel of

fore and after puzzle was paper or

and Sandy.
Edna Wulff had company June
25, her friend, Berniece Buum, and
great-granddaughter, Ella Peter-
son, Rapid City.
Monday, June 25, Irene Cox had
a visitor, Kara Parsons, Milesville.
The Somerset Court Monday
movie was Fried Green Tomatoes.
Most of us had seen it years back
and were glad to see it again. I
loved the old backwoods setting
with little, old run-abouts and pick-
ups. I liked the performance of Jes-
sica Tandy and the woman who de-
cided to take charge of her life. I
liked the reference to a makeup
company and we werent sorry to
learn that Frank Bennett was done
in, The secrets in the sauce!
Thank you to David K. Hansen
for your great email about old
times and new. He had an opportu-
nity to fix a wheel bearing. Janet
then drove the vehicle on a trip to
Missouri. She checked the temper-
ature of the wheel bearing after
100 miles with their remote-sens-
ing thermometer and found it cool.
Thank you to my granddaughter
and family, Gwenn and Gary Mor-
gan, Sarah, Kelsie and Tyler, for
your tender birthday card and
beautiful gifts.
Thank you to Al Vogan who
sends the Imprimus leaflet from
Hillsdale Mich. College. The essay
in this issue is about the ill effects
of generous student loans.

Tuesday, June 26, at Somerset
Court, we had morning exercises.
Then some played rumi-cube. Vi-
vian has a new game called quid-
dler which will take some getting
used to.
Tuesday was also the birthday
bash for Somerset Court residents
whose birthdays are in June. Edna
Mae Moss, June 7, Marilyn Butts,
June 11, Phyllis Capeheart, June
15, Virginia Gray, June 20, Vivian
Hansen, June 21, and Larry
Solano, June 25. Don Stensgaard
led us in singing happy birthday,
God bless you. The kitchen staff
baker, P.J. made a pretty white
cake with chocolate and pink frost-
ing. The cake was served with cof-
fee and vanilla ice cream. Thank
you all for the nice party.
Edna Mae Moss told me that she
was from Houston. Her husband
had been from Owanka, and had
gone to Rapid Citys School of
Mines. He became an engineer and
took a job in Houston. He loved
Houston and they spent many
years there.
Last week, my granddaughter,
Sheridan Hansen, had a cosmetic
party at her mothers home in
Philip. Guests there included
Jenna Deuchar Finn, Shannon Jin-
dra who moved from Philip to Her-
mosa, Kay Ainslie, Sharon Coyle,
Shirley Dennis, Shirley Chin, and
Donna Baye. Donna is also a cos-
metic consultant. Shannon also
sells cosmetics and purses.
Tuesday, June 26, Sheridan
Hansen and children, Tiger, four,
and Cecelia, almost two, came to
visit at Somerset Court. We walked
laps and Cecelia pushed the doll
buggy from Grandmas Attic all
around the lap and Tiger and I
rolled pool balls by hand. Gwynn
Hansen also came for lunch and
later took me to a cosmetic party.
Sheridan could use us a models to
show her makeup.
Somerset Court resident, Pat
Staley, was visited by her sister,
Kathryn Dennis. Kathryn has writ-
ten a book entitled And Then We
Danced. She said she will bring a
copy for Somerset Court library.
Thank you, Kathryn. The book has
an attractive cover with a pair of
dancers and inside the back cover
is a silhouette of cowboys sitting on
a pole corral. The book is written
about the area around Newell.
Wednesday, June 27, we had the
annual Somerset Court auction
sale. Our director was our auction-
eer. Thanks Ryan and thanks to all
of our activity directors and others
who donate items, such as Sandy
with two dozen cookies and Susan
who will take a resident to a Sun-
day movie downtown. Residents
spend all the Somerset bucks that
they (we) have saved over the year.
Things bring a good price, like an
overnight in a Somerset guests
suite, at $55,000 or 60,000. A bas-
ket of fruit, $41,000. A lap robe
from the Somerset quilters was
around $40,000. Early in the sale,
Phillie Johnson bought two excel-
lent cushions for $8,000, but then
things heated up. Marilyn Oyler
ended up with the quilters full-size
Wednesday, we had an elegant
dessert made with Jeri Deschamps
recipe, pineapple fluff. At Somerset
Court, dessert portions are always

new law taking effect July 1 allows
them to have a veteran designation
on their state-issued drivers li-
The 2012 Legislature passed the
law, which gives honorably dis-
charged veterans the option of
adding the word veteran to the
front of their South Dakota drivers
license. Including that designation
on the drivers license will make it
easier for those who have served in
the military to verify their veteran
South Dakota is home to over
74,000 veterans. The launch of this
new veteran identification will
provide a convenient identification
for veterans, said Steve Harding,
deputy secretary for the South
Dakota Department of Veterans
Affairs. This initiative is a perfect
example of state agencies working
Veterans who wish to add the
designation to their drivers license
or non-driver identification card
may visit any South Dakota
drivers license office. They will
need to present their DD-214,
which shows their honorable dis-
charge status from active duty or
present a certificate signed by a
county veterans service officer ver-
ifying their status. The fee for a du-
plicate license is $10 and the fee for

Then saith the woman of
Samaria unto him, How
is it that thou, being a
Jew, askest drink of me,
which am a woman of
Samaria? for the Jews
have no dealings with the
John 4.9 (KJJ)
It did not matter to Jesus that
the woman was a Samaritan.
He reached out to her
anyway in order to bring her
to Him. As believers, we
should be doing the same,
spreading the Word to
everyone possible, whatever
their diIIerences, so that they
may devour it and pass it on.

Dennis J. Kennedy________________
Dennis J. Kennedy, age 66 of
Philip, S.D., died June 29, 2012, at
the Hospice of the Hills in Rapid
Dennis Jay Kennedy was born
July 13, 1945, in Philip, S. D., the
son of Howard and Dorothy
(Aaberg) Kennedy. He grew up in
Philip where he attended school
through high school. He graduated
from South Dakota State Univer-
sity in pharmacy in 1968. Upon
graduation, took a job with Wal-
green Drug Stores in Phoenix, Ariz.
He worked in Phoenix for ap-
proximately a year before being
drafted into the U.S. Army. After
basic training at Fort Lewis,
Wash., he was stationed at Madi-
gan General Hospital in Tacoma,
Wash., during the Vietnam con-
Upon his discharge in 1971, he
went back to Phoenix to work for
two more years. In 1973, he moved
to Denver, Colo., and owned a clinic
pharmacy for three years. Then in
1976, due to health reasons and a
job opening at the drug store in
Faith, he moved back to South
Dakota. In the fall of 1978, he
moved back to Philip to become as-
sociated with Howard and Wayne
Duck at Kennedy Implement and
Auto Company. He sold the busi-
ness in 2010 and retired in Philip.
Dennis developed lifelong
friends in high school and college
which he would travel to visit, his
favorite activity. He loved his cars,
clothes and interior decorating. He
loved music and was a member of
the Haakon County Crooners for
many years.

I would like to start my news
week with stories from Kenneths
history. One of these is true. It is
about a man who was well thought
of in this area. In later years he
hung out in town at Pop Pohles
feed and seed store, along with
other old-timers like Al Knutson.
When we were first married and
for several years following, Ken-
neth would go to Pop Pohles and
visit while he waited for me to fin-
ish my shopping. This was the
place where most of the country
men gathered to talk over the lat-
est happenings.
Rudolph E. Tungland, he home-
steaded a mile northeast of the Al-
falfa School on 2-18-18 east near
the Ted Knutson place. We all
called him Rudy. He was the great-
uncle of John and Rod Knutson.
Kenneth was about 13 or 14
years old and was out riding his
horse. He rode by the old vacant
Blair place east about two and a
half miles from here. For some rea-
son, he decided to look in the old
barn and tied up in there was a
team of horses. Of course, he defi-
antly knew the horses as no other
team in the country were as good
as these were. They were Belgiums
and they would bring good money
in those days.
Kenneth came on home and
asked his dad what Rudys horses
would be doing tied up in the Blair
barn. His dad asked him if he was
sure they were Rudys and be de-
termined, he told him he was sure.
Tom Eide loaded up Kenneth in
the car and they went over to
Rudys and told him what Kenneth
had seen. Rudy told them that his
team was out in the pasture. Tom
was not satisfied and he asked him
if they could go out and see for sure
that the team was in the pasture.
So they drove out there and the
team was nowhere to be found.
So then they drove over to the
Blair barn and Rudy looked in and
said, By gingery, (his favorite say-
ing) those are my horses. He went
into the barn and untied them from
the stall and started leading them
the six miles home. Kenneth said
that made his day.
Rustling still goes on today and
people get caught. At that time,
they knew who did it but did not
turn them in as it would have been
hard on a good neighbor and this
neighbor had also married into the
family. Shortly after this, he did
leave the country.
I have been busy these last few
weeks, eating out with family while
the granddaughters were home at
Marvin and Vickis for the summer
visiting. And they invited me to
have lunch and dinner with them.
This last Wednesday, I was in-
vited to have lunch with Rev. Rus-
sell and Mary Pierce in downtown
Philip, along with Alice Brooks,
Gene and Doris Daniel, Cliff and
Rita Ramsey, Phyllis Hajeck, Kay
Ainslie, and Debbie Hansen. It was
so nice to see Pierces again. They
live at Yankton and are staying
with Russell's sister, June, in
June was driving them to a fam-
ily reunion over this coming week-
end. I believe it was to be held in
Montana, a trip of 600 miles from
here. Russell has a spring in his
step and he even ran a little to and
fro to get us all organized for lunch.
Rev. Pierce was a good minister
while here at the United Church.
He left here and went to the be pas-
tor of the Methodist church in
Pierre for a few years. Their son,
Tim, was married at Pierre while
they were there. I was able to at-
tend his wedding. They were gone
from Pierre before their son, Ken-
neth, was married.
They are a plus in our lives and
it is a pleasure to know them and
enjoy their friendship. Rev. Pierces
family were long-time residents of
Philip and they had the grain ele-
vator here for several years while
Russell was growing up. They left
here and moved to Murdo where
Russell finished high school.
Marivn Eide has been over to
Steve Clements doing some
windrowing for him this week.
Steve had broken down and
wanted to get finished before he
could get his haying equipment re-
This is a short week for news as
there was an early deadline so I
hope everyone had a safe and
happy Fourth of July.

Midland News
Well, folks, due to the Fourth of
July holiday coming in the middle of
next week we have been asked to get
our news column in by Friday of this
week, for next weeks paper. Have I
got you confused yet? I think I may
be confusing myself. But, here goes.
The combiners are really moving into
Midland. Oh, my, are those machines
big. Some years back, combines were
much smaller, took longer to get the
wheat cut, and many didnt have air
conditioners. By the end of the day
those folks driving those combines
were hot and they were itchy from all
that dust. Its good they have air con-
ditioning now. The days get long and
being more comfortable helps a
Talk about long, hot, tiring days,
the firefighters with the Colorado
fires and the fires in the Black Hills
are putting in some long and ex-
hausting days. Have you noticed the
last few days how orange the sun is
as it is sliding down for the night? I
cant help but think it is due to the
haze we are getting from those fires.
I called my brother, Phil Meyers, con-
cerning the fires at Colorado Springs,
as their son, Damon, Sarah and fam-
ily live at Colorado Springs. He said
they are okay, that the fire is straight
west of where they live. When they
step out on their deck they can see
the fires and the haze from those
fires gets pretty thick at times. See-
ing the pictures of the fires on TV
gives a person a sick feeling, cant
imagine what it would be like to ac-
tually be there. They could certainly
use the rains they are getting in
Florida where they are having too
much rain. Sarah is a nurse in Col-
orado Springs and with all that is
going on with folks due to those fires
she will be putting in longer hours.
Our prayers go out to those folks, for
The Midland Pioneer Museum is
once again open for the summer sea-
son. The days and hours the museum
is open are Monday, Tuesday and
Friday from 1:30 to 4:00 p.m. Mid-
land does have a real nice museum.
Jan Bierle is there to answer ques-
tions and if she cant be there,
Mahlon Alcock will be. If you havent
stopped in at the museum, I invite
you to do so. In those buildings is the
history of those hardy pioneers. As
most of you know, the main building
at the museum, the first one you
come into, is the former Midland
depot. It is an interesting building in
itself. A whole lot of history is in that

June 24. Robin and Joe Opitz visited
at the parental Woitte home until
Tuesday, June 26, and Kristin Woitte
stayed until June 30. All of Shorty
and Mickey (Martin) Woitte kids
were home, but for Budd who was un-
able to come. Those of their kids here
were Kandi, Rex, Joe, Robin, Leslee,
Kris and Eric. I saw where Deanna
(Anderson) Peters was at the Martin
reunion. Deannas parents were Curt
and Thelma (Martin) Anderson.
Deanna taught school at Midland for
a few years. Thelma wrote and pub-
lished a number of books that many
of us have in our homes. And Mickey
is quite an artist
I got out my favorite history book
Prairie Progress in West Central
South Dakota and looked up the
Henry and Dena Martin history.
Henry Martin was born at
Woonsocket, S.D., on January 24,
1890, and spent his early life on
farms in the Canton and Sioux Falls
neighborhoods. He came to Midland
in 1910 as his brother-in-law, Jim
Huston, told him this was wonderful
Fresh garden produce, farm
eggs, handcrafted items and
more! Evening meal, sweet
treats and music!
Henry stayed with Jim and Bird
Huston on the Cook place east of the
Curt Bentley ranch the first year. In
the history book it told he bought a
Model T Ford car from Frank Cal-
hoon, thus owning one of the first
motor cars in the country at the time.
Henry became friends with Alvin
Bertelson, who ranched on Bad River
east of Midland. Alvin introduced his
sister, Dena, to Henry because he fig-
ured if he promoted a romance be-
tween them, he could ride along to
dances in the Model T instead of rid-
ing horseback. Guess it worked be-
cause Henry Martin and Dena Ber-
telson were married at Kadoka, Oc-
tober 16, 1916. They moved to Denas
homestead two miles west of
Moenville. According to the history
book, it later became a part of the
Everett Towne ranch. Dena was born
in Iowa in 1894. When they lived in
the Moenville area Herbert, Henry
Jr., Thelma and Julianna were born.
They later had two more children, Al-
bert (Fuzz) and Annetta (Mickey).
Dena had gone to school in a little log
schoolhouse. Dena went to school in
different places, one of them being at
the Presbyterian Church in Midland
which is now Trinity Lutheran
Church. She eventually got a second
grade teachers certificate and taught
in different schools over the years.
It goes on to say, one of the high-
lights of the frontier community was
the annual Fourth of July celebration
held in Midland. They always had a
ladies horse race down Main Street,
and Dena rode in them. She won sev-
eral of those races riding her brother,
Alberts horse, Monte. She also rode
one of Frank Calhoons horses to vic-
tory. In the book it tells that Frank
said it couldnt run, but it did.
In the history book, it told that
Henry was a good old-time fiddler.
He played the violin at dances all
over the country and in the Midland
Legion Hall. The Martin place was a
regular gathering place for dances on
Saturday nights. Always like to learn
some of the history of folks who used
to live in the Midland area.
There was an interesting article in
the June 27, 2012, Capital Journal
newspaper about a historic Fort
Pierre cemetery in which there was
going to be a tour on June 28. Karl
Fischer tells that when he was a boy,
it was the cemetery where everyone
in Fort Pierre buried their dead.
Catholics on one side and protestants
on the other, among the stones mark-
ing infantryman from World War I,
Cavalry troops and Union soldiers
from the Civil War. Fischer told that
many folks dont know about the
Cedar Hill Cemetery, hidden in a rip-
ple of hills just outside of town and so
a bus tour was being done to share
some of the history of that cemetery.
Theyre the people who built this
country, says Fischer, but now their
families have mostly died or moved
on. Some of the names in the ceme-
tery belonged to families who never
stayed for any length of time in Fort
Pierre, which was a jumping-off point
for lands to the west. They were
going through the country and then
people died, say Fischer, So they
buried their dead and kept moving.
There is so much history in our State
of South Dakota. And as always, I
find it interesting.
Jerry happened to run into and en-
joyed visiting with Butch Dennis and
his wife of Rapid City at the store in
Midland Thursday. They had been
fishing in Pierre catching some good
walleye. Butch told Jerry he had
driven by his place. That would be
the DeYoung place which we bought
a number of years ago. They had
driven by there on their way out to
the former Dennis farm where Butch
had grown up. Henry and Hope Den-
nis had a number of children. In the
history book Prairie Progress in
West Central South Dakota, Olivia
(Dennis) Perovich wrote an interest-
ing article about the Dennis-Richard-
son families. I used parts of that ar-
ticle some time back in my Midland
News column. In reading some of it
again this morning I found a humor-
ous tale about Henry. In the article it
told that Henry enjoyed water fights,
and liked to tease and play pranks.
Olivia writes, At the end of harvest
he would buy a new hat or pair of
shoes and leave his old, worn, greasy
ones on the display shelf at the store.
On one such occasion, the Midland
Co-op returned his old hat by U.S.
Mail. Did have to chuckle as I read
Congratulations to Mark and
Glenda Nemec, who live just outside
of Hill City, and got yard of the
month for June. They were chosen by
the Garden Club ladies and when you
see pictures of their yard it is easy to
see why their yard was one of those
chosen. It is absolutely beautiful.
From what I hear, Mark and Glenda
have a scenic spot and live in a log
cabin house. Sounds like a road trip
might be in order dont you think?
An update on Alice (Donovan) Ven-
ner, Pierre, is that she has had a few
up and down days this past week, but
from the sounds of things more ups
are winning. She and her family are
getting acquainted with the hospice
nurse and said that, Like Caring
Bridge it is an amazing program with
amazing people. What a comfort
when you are dealing with serious is-
sues. Alices daughter, Micaela, wrote
on the Caring Bridge update, Alice
(mom) wants everyone to know what
joy she has in reading the Caring
Bridge messages and memories.
They are the best GIFT you can
give. Family asks that you continue
to pray for comfort, strength and
peace she needs for her journey. And,
for restful sleep and good health to
her caregivers and loved ones. Our
thoughts and prayers are truly with
Alice and her family at this time and
in the days ahead. It is hard. As a
caregiver you want to make things
better, but it truly is in Gods hands
He is our strength and our comfort in
the storms of life.
The Midland summer reading pro-
gram was held Wednesdays during
the month of June at the Trinity
Lutheran Church, with the theme
"Bee a Reader." The kids listened to
buggy books during story time. Some
of the crafts they made were paper
plate bees, butterfly life cycle wheels,
ladybug bug boxes, and edible bug
snacks. Kids sang and danced to
songs such as "Baby Bumblebee" and
"Itsy Bitsy Spider." They visited the
Midland Library each day to check
out books and movies from Librarian
Karel Reiman. The following awards
were given, Kahler Finn and Cass
Finn-best helpers, Dane Daly-most
creative, Kelsey Hand-best singer,
and Tukker Boe and Morgan Sam-
mons-best listeners. Jenna Finn was
in charge of the summer reading pro-
gram this year and was so thankful
to the moms and grandma's for help-
ing out. We also want to thank Jenna
for all the time and work she put into
the summer reading program. Its a
lot of work and reports are that the
kids had a great time, some telling li-
brarian Karel about their projects
etc. This program is sponsored by the
Midland Community Library.
As I close out my news column for
another week our daughter, Charlene
Nemec, is in Vilnius, Lithuania. In
her email, Charlene writes, I arrived
safely in Vilnius, Lithuania my
thoughts exactly how does a girl
from a farming community in South
Dakota get to Vilnius, Lithuania? I
can hardly believe it myself, but I am
proof that it really can and does hap-
We do not receive wisdom; we
must discover it for ourselves, after a
journey through the wilderness which
no one else can make for us, which no
one can spare us, for our wisdom is
the point of view which we come at
last to regard the world.
And take time to be kind to each
other. Words can be hurtful, think
before you speak. Have a good day
and a safe Fourth of July.

softball field. Wall won 4-0. Then the losers of the first games played on the base-
ball field for the third and fourth places. Philip defeated Kadoka in extra innings
6-5. The day ended with the winners of the first games playing on the baseball
field for first and second places. Wall won, again in extra innings, and also with
the score of 6-5. It was a great tournament. All the games were very competitive.
The guys had a lot of fun. I appreciate the Paulsons coming down. All the boys
got medals or trophies and shook hands with the Paulsons, said Brad Heltzel,
tournament director. Back row, from left: Coach J.R. Snyder, Gordan Paulsen,

Want to have a great feeling on
Tuesday, July 10?
Plan to stop by the blood drive,
from 10:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., at the
Bad River Senior Citizens Center
in Philip.
By giving blood, a donor helps re-
plenish a community resource used
by a neighbor, relative, friend or
even complete stranger. The dona-
tion gives a future patient the same
recovery opportunity as a current
patient, because it assures blood
will be on the hospital shelf when
it is needed.
Only when a significant number
of people donate on a regular basis
can a community maintain ade-
quated blood supplies. If everyone
waited for an emergency to donate,
many lives would be jeopardized,
said Lori Liebman, United Blood
Services donor recruitment direc-
tor. Waiting to donate in an emer-
gency only creates more emergen-
cies. Blood must be available at all
times in sufficient amounts to meet
the needs of a community.
Volunteer blood donors must be
at least 16 years old, weigh at least
110 pounds and be in good health.
Additional height/weight require-
ments apply to donors 22 and
younger, and donors who are 16, or
17 in certain areas, must have
signed permission from a parent or
Potential donors can make an
appointment to give at www.blood- or by calling 605-342-
8585 in Rapid City or 605-996-3688
in Mitchell. Donors will also receive
a free cholesterol test.

The 9-1-1 surcharge increase took
effect on July 1.
The 2012 Legislature approved an
increase in the traditional sur-
charge from the old 75 cents per
month to $1.25 per month. That fee
is collected by all monthly billed
telephone and wireless service
providers. In addition, the legisla-
ture also assessed the two percent 9-
1-1 surcharge on all prepaid wire-
less services collected at the retail
point of sale.
The surcharge pays the cost of op-
erating 9-1-1 public safety dispatch
centers. New services will be possi-
ble in the Next Generation 9-1-1
system. Citizens can not currently
send a text message to a 9-1-1 dis-
patch center. They are not currently
able to send photos or video of
crimes or suspects to a 9-1-1 dis-
9-1-1 charge

Two changes to South Dakota's
open meetings laws will clarify
when public meeting agendas are
posted and how the public can par-
ticipate in certain public meetings
conducted by teleconference.
The changes are among many
new laws approved by the legisla-
ture last winter that take effect
July 1.
Public boards that are subject to
the states open meetings law will
now need to make sure their meet-
ing agenda is posted in a place ac-
cessible to the public for at least a
full 24 hours prior to the meeting.
The agenda also must be posted to
the public board's website if the
board has an online site.
The new law stems from com-
plaints taken up by the states
Open Meetings Commission. Peo-
ple who had filed complaints with
the OMC argued the old law did
not fully explain how far in ad-
vance of a public meeting an
agenda notice needed to be posted.
Some argued they could not get
sufficient advance notice of a public
meeting because the agenda had
been posted in a public building
lobby not accessible other than dur-
ing normal business hours.
Representative Burt Tulson,
Lake Norden, represents a legisla-
tive district where one of the
agenda posting complaints brought
before the OMC originated. Resi-
dents in the Willow Lake School
District filed a complaint regarding
the posting of an agenda for a
school board meeting. I think it's
important that the public can see
the meeting agenda, especially
when offices are closed, Tulson
said. I think this law strikes a
good balance. Many (public boards)
were posting agendas already.
Sen. Ried Holien, Watertown,
also was one of key sponsors of the
new law. This law was necessary
to protect public oversight of gov-
ernment, Holien said. This law
strengthens the peoples right to
know and to offer input. Without
ongoing vigilance, like the kind this
law provides, any level of govern-
ment could begin to, whether on
purpose or by accident, operate in
Holien agreed that the new law
should not be too burdensome for
public boards. This was a concern
of mine when drafting this legisla-
tion, Holien said. While we
wanted to protect the public's right
to know, we also did not want to
make government less responsive
or more bureaucratic. Therefore,
we made compliance as easy and
flexible as possible. I do not see any
difficulty in complying with this
A second change to the open
meetings laws requires public
boards conducting meetings by
teleconference to allow the public
to listen by phone or the Internet in
certain circumstances.
If less than a quorum of a public
board is present at its designated
meeting location, then arrange-
ments must be made for the public
to listen by telephone or the Inter-
net from anywhere.
Under the old law, the public
would need to go to the public
board's main office if it wanted to
participate in the board's telecon-
ference meeting.
Sen. Al Novstrup of Aberdeen
sponsored the teleconference legis-
lation. A frequent critic of the ad-
ministration of the James River
Water District, Novstrup said he
became increasingly frustrated
when he would have to drive from
his home in Aberdeen to the dis-
trict's office in Huron if he wanted
to listen to a district board's tele-
conference meeting.
It wasnt that the meeting
wasnt open, it wasnt available at
a price you could afford, Novstrup
said, citing instances where mem-
bers of the public may drive 200
miles in order to listen to a public
meeting that may last only 10 min-
Novstrup said the change will af-
fect state boards and commissions
more than local government
boards. State boards are more fre-
quent users of teleconference meet-
ings, often because the board mem-
bers are from various locations
across the state.

New pen meetings

South Dakota is reporting its
first West Nile virus (WNV) detec-
tions of the season, a positive mos-
quito pool in Brookings County and
one in Brown County.
This will be the 11th year of
West Nile transmission in South
Dakota and it may be tempting to
be complacent, said Dr. Lon
Kightlinger, state epidemiologist
for the Department of Health. We
need to remember that it can be a
serious, even fatal illness, and get
in the habit of protecting ourselves
by using repellents, limiting expo-
sure, and getting rid of mosquito
breeding spots.
To prevent mosquito bites and
reduce the risk of WNV, the de-
partment recommends the follow-
ing personal precautions. Use mos-
quito repellents (DEET, picaridin,
oil of lemon eucalyptus, or IR3535)
and limit exposure by covering up.
Limit time outdoors from dusk to
midnight when Culex mosquitoes
are most active. Get rid of standing
water that gives mosquitoes a place
to breed. Support local mosquito
control efforts.
In South Dakota peak transmis-
sion of WNV is July through early
September. South Dakota has re-
ported 1,759 cases, including 26
deaths, since its first case in 2002.
Personal precautions are espe-
cially important for those at high
risk for WNV people over 50,
pregnant women, transplant pa-
tients, people with diabetes or high
blood pressure, and those with a
history of alcohol abuse. People
with a severe or unusual headache
should see their physician.

Baby it's hot outside! That is the
way June faded into the sunset.
Hot and dry. The sun parches the
prairie while the wind sucks the
moisture from the plants, leaving
them brittle and dried. Many areas
are being burned up with simple
things like lightening started fires
and even a spark from a mower or
glass that the sun beats down on
relentlessly have started fires.
With the Fourth of July, Independ-
ence Day celebrations, I would
hope that maybe a January fire-
works display would be good, with
lots of snow. At any rate, however
you celebrate, be careful.
Harvest has begun around the
area. Combine crews are arriving
in Kadoka and Philip and readying
their machines to get an earnest
start in the wheat fields, but pick-
ings are a bit slim with farmers
choosing to hay crops that didn't
appear too good or were hail dam-
aged. This isn't the first year har-
vest was going by July 1st. And
there are grasshoppers! Billions of
the little critters, even around
town, gnawing on the grass stems
and coating the corral posts.
Bill and I had a new appreciation
for things done the old ways. Mon-
day, while on the road to Water-
town with our trailer, the air con-
ditioner on the pickup quit about
five miles out of town. Down came
the windows, with the heat index
at 100, it was just hot air and our
hair blew, with little visiting or lis-
tening to the radio as those sounds
were deafened by the noise of the
road and wind. The smell of the
feed lots penetrated our nostrils,
but also we enjoyed the smell of
fresh mowed alfalfa fields. Oh how
spoiled we have become. The only
thing we were missing was the
burlap bag tied across the front of
the car to cool the radiator and af-
ford an air cooled drink when we
stopped now that would have re-
ally been stepping back in time. We
settled into a motel at Watertown
for the next two nights and were
thankful for showers and air condi-
tioning. Tuesday, we spent part of
the day getting the pickup air con-
ditioner fixed and making numer-
ous trips to Goodwill with clothing,
as well as taking care of other busi-
ness while there. L.T. Works and
Judy DeWitt were left to take care
of the cat and house. A roofing crew
was working to tear off old shingles
and replace rotted underlay on the
north addition as well as shingle
the south side.
George, Sandee and Roxie Git-
tings were in Pierre Monday for a
doctor's appointment for George.
The results of the tests were good.
Tony Harty was out and about
Monday and visited Shirley Hair in
the morning, shaded up during the
heat of the day, then in the after-
noon chatted with his niece, Kathy
Brown, and Dale Koehn.
Roxie Gittings returned to her
home in Eagan, Minn., early Tues-
day morning.
A miserable night of not being
able to get comfortable was enough
to send Tony Harty scurrying to
Pierre Tuesday early to meet Mer-
lin Bennett to be worked on. When
he got home, he visited Shirley
Hair, then later in the day made a
trip to Philip to pick up medication
and watch softball games. He and
Kathy Brown grabbed a pizza be-
fore her team the Weta River Rats
were up. It was still hot into the
Haying has been keeping Don
and Vi Moody busy at their ranch.
Tuesday, Don kept a pickup ap-
pointment and Vi a hair appoint-
ment in Philip. They also began fix-
ing up and repairing the metal
shed that blew across a corral in a
violent, strong wind this summer.
Rain is needed again.
Tuesday evening, Shelley Seager
arrived at the home of her niece,
Amanda and Adam Claflin, Harris-
burg, spending the night, then all
coming on to Watertown early
Wednesday where the five of us
worked at clearing Sandra's apart-
ment. It was a hot, humid day so
Bill worked in the shade of a tree
and sorted things that were carried
to him. What to keep, and what
things to toss or give away? In the
afternoon, help arrived with folks
from C.A.R.E helping move the
heavier things down the stairs.
How sad that a life can be reduced
to be carried away in a few short
Know Not Why: Our Father has
His reasons in this life we know not
why. But in our trials and pain, our
soul does not die. Author BJ
Shelley made it back to Sutton
that evening. Bill, I, Amanda and
Adam went to Madison together,
visited with grandson, Chase May,
and Carly, dropping off one car
there as well as some other items,
then on to our homes.
Wednesday, there was a little re-
lief from the heat with the temp in
the mid 70s in Kadoka. In the
morning, Tony Harty sat in on
court proceedings.
Jessica Gittings took Daniel to a
birthday party Friday afternoon for
Aiden Heltzel.
Greg Utterback and "John
Deere" Jim Brimm, Creston, Iowa,
arrived at the George Gittings
home about noon Friday to hunt
prairie dogs in the area.
Kathy Brown was a Thursday
visitor at the home of Tony Harty
in the afternoon. Tony stopped by
our place and engaged Judy in a
farkel game or two.
Friday, Tony took off early for
Martin, but with road construction
and some rain south of Kadoka,
traffic was detoured, so that added
another 33 miles to the already 60
mile trip. He took delivery of sev-
eral cases of chickens for customers
in this area. Luckily, he could use
the main road on the return trip,
which saved miles and time. He
had dinner out, then made deliver-
ies around town and visited Shirley
Hair later in the day, and helped
Kathy Brown take a bike to a gal to
use to get to work. A little faster
than walking.
Friday morning, Randy Yost,
Hayes, applied aerial spray for
grasshopper control on Vi and Don
Moody's alfalfa bottoms and adjoin-
ing necessary acreage. It was
pretty neat to see the two planes in
action. Also, when Don and Vi ar-
rived at their Rapid Valley place
Friday evening, the hay at their lit-
tle ranch had already been cut and
baled, so that was nice progress. It
yielded out fairly well all things
considered this year. They got their
little mowing tractor up and run-
ning again too, so all seems to be
going well. Vi said, "Now maybe we
can still call it our R&R place."
Rest and relaxation.
Friday afternoon, Bill and L.T.
Works went to Philip to check in at
the card room, but came home
early enough to pick up Judy De-
Witt and me to go to Rapid, visit at
Eric Seager's and present little Eli
with his first birthday card, (that
being Saturday, June 30). We also
visited at Zack Seager's, then at-
tended the races, having a late
night out.
We appreciate the friendship
from the many folks we call
friends. Your cards and calls are in-
deed appreciated and welcomed. So
often fear stops one from picking
up the phone or jotting a note. The
fear about not saying the right
thing cancels heartfelt reaching
out. Thanks for not letting that
fear stop you.
Kinsey, Natalie, Kohen and
Kelsey Gittings arrived at the
George Gittings home early Satur-
day morning to be here for the wed-
ding of their mom, Beth, and
Steven Stewart.
Very hot and dry week in Stur-
gis. Tuesday was the hottest with
106. Saturday morning, Ralph and
Cathy Fiedler packed up and
headed for Philip to attend the
wedding of Steven Stewart and
Beth Davis, arriving at the Richard
Stewart home, where Kellie and
Kadence Halverson, Kennebec,
and the Beau Stewart family,
Beresford, had already arrived.
The house was a beehive of activity
with visiting, while making salads
for the reception. Ralph and Cathy
stopped by the nursing home to see
her mom, Katy Drageset, before at-
tending the wedding and reception/
dance at the Legion Hall that
Sunday, Ralph and Cathy went
to the Richard Stewart home for
brunch, visited with the family,
and then returned to Sturgis.
Don and Vi Moody had a front
row seat at their Rapid Valley
home, near the airport turnoff,
when rescue units and law enforce-
ment vehicles went racing by with
sirens to the Rapid City Regional
Airport. A plane from Phoenix,
Ariz., to Chicago had to shut an en-
gine down. It had 131 passengers
and a crew of five. It landed safely
with one engine the other shut-
down with a drop in oil pressure.
The plane landed fine without inci-
dent, but a lot of preparation was
made in case things didn't work as
Never Alone Again This road is
a long one, but together, all of us as
one, will win back our self-respect
and begin walking our new road to
this beautiful thing called life.
Sunday morning, Bill Sumpter
and L.T. Works went to Terry
Buchert's and they all took a drive
to the Howes and Plainview area to
see how crops faired from the Sat-
urday evening hail. There was con-
siderable hail just two miles north
of Philip that damaged crops there,
and the corn at Howes is probably
done for, even though they got 1.4"
of rain along with hail.
In the afternoon, I joined the
many friends and family in Philip
to wish Helen Sorenson a happy
90th birthday.

week of preparation camp, Troupe
members will perform their variety
show at 13 venues throughout the
state. This year's musical produc-
tion, 4-H Salutes American Band-
stand features music, dance and
songs such as Bandstand Boogie,
