my third victory in a row. I ran a
time of 2:38:24.
The conditions were warm and
heating up as time past. The course
was on all back-road county high-
ways in Iowa. There were around
197 total finishers in the
marathon.
I now have completed 11
marathons in 10 different states
with 40 more to go hopefully. With
10 different states completed, I can
now join the 50 state club. There
are a lot of people in this club. My
goal is to run a marathon in all 50
of the states.
My support team for this race
was my wife, Casey Huffman, and
my mom and dad, Tim and Carmen
Huffman, of Kadoka. It was fun to
see my family at a few of the differ-
ent mile markers and give me sup-
port. Then they were at the finish
to help me get recovered and enjoy
a dinner that was provided after
the race. It was a fun weekend
spent with the family on another
Saturday morning. The race began
at 6:00 a.m. so we had to get up by
4:30 in order to get to the start line.
Hello, Curtis Huffman again
here. I recently ran in the
Marathon to Marathon event June
9. It was a marathon from Storm
Lake, IA to a small town of
Marathon, IA. I won the race for

Deputy Secretary Harding and his
staff to provide this opportunity to
the men and women who have
served their country honorably in
the military, Gerber said.
Gerber also said veterans who
have questions about the docu-
ments or the process may call her
office at 1.800.952.3696 or
605.773.6883.
Harding encourages veterans
who need assistance with obtaining
their DD214 or who have questions
regarding their benefits to contact
their respective county/tribal veter-
ans service officer or call the South
Dakota Department of Veterans Af-
fairs (605.773.3269).
Here is a summary of the docu-
ments required for obtaining a
driver license. If you think you may
have difficulty obtaining any of the
necessary documents, please call
the Driver Licensing Program.
One identity document, such as
a certified birth certificate or a
valid unexpired U.S. passport.
(Note: If your name is different
than the name on your identity
document, you will need to bring
additional proof of your legal name,
such as a certified marriage certifi-
cate, adoption document, or divorce
decree. A passport will work, if the
name on the passport matches the
name on your current driver li-
cense).
One document proving Social
Security number. Acceptable docu-
ments are a Social Security card,
W-2 form, SSA 1099 form or pay
stub (which must include Social Se-
curity number and name)
Two documents proving residen-
tial address. Acceptable documents
include utility bill, credit card
statement, pay stub, rent receipt,
phone bill, transcript or report card
from accredited school, bank state-
ment, mortgage or tax document,
homeowner or renter insurance
policy. (A parent's proof of address
is acceptable for a minor child.)
South Dakotas Departments of
Public Safety and Veterans Affairs
remind military veterans that a
new law taking effect July 1 allows
them to have a veteran designation
on their state-issued driver license.
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 driver
license. Including that designation
on the driver license will make it
easier for those who have served in
the military to verify their veteran
status.
South Dakota is home to over
74,000 veterans who have pro-
tected and served our great nation.
The launch of this new veteran
identification will provide a con-
venient identification for veterans,
said Steve Harding, Deputy Secre-
tary for the South Dakota Depart-
ment of Veterans Affairs. This
initiative is a perfect example of
state agencies working together to
assist those who have served and
sacrificed for our nation.
Veterans who wish to add the
designation to their driver license
or non-driver ID card may visit any
South Dakota driver license office.
They will need to present their DD-
214, which shows their honorable
discharge status from active duty
or present a certificate signed by a
county or tribal veterans service of-
ficer verifying their status. Veter-
ans should also remember that the
fee for a duplicate license is $10
and the fee for a license renewal is
$20.
Cindy Gerber, Director of the
South Dakota Driver Licensing
Program, reminds veterans that
they will need to provide the other
documents required of any appli-
cant for a South Dakota driver li-
cense. Those documents may be
viewed at http://dps.sd.gov/licens-
ing/driver_licensing/obtain_a_li-
cense.aspx.

Criminal Statistical Analysis Cen-
ter (SAC). The SAC Unit is the pri-
mary clearinghouse for criminal
justice statistical data for South
Dakota.
The Criminal Statistical Analy-
sis Center and the participating
law enforcement agencies continue
to provide important crime report-
ing information for identifying
trends in criminal activity to assist
in crime prevention and enforce-
ment efforts across South Dakota,
said Jackley. Our criminal statis-
tics reflect that South Dakota re-
mains a relatively safe place to live
as a result of law enforcement ef-
forts, strong community involve-
ment, and a supportive
legislature.
South Dakota law enforcement
agencies reported a total of 33,340
arrests involving 56,272 offenses in
2011. The more serious offenses in-
cluded a total of 14,570 arrests and

Volunteers needed
in Jackson County
with BHSU Retired
Senior Volunteer
Program

Volunteers in South Dakota
rank fifth in the nation in terms of
the rate at which they volunteer.
But, this is no surprise to those of
us that live here. With a history
that is rich with neighbors helping
neighbors, South Dakota residents
realize all too well that they need
to depend on each other to keep
their communities strong.
Our volunteers make our com-
munities safer and richer by pro-
viding comfort and respite to those
in need, and by giving selflessly of
their time to arts and cultural in-
stitutions that would be forced to
shut their doors otherwise. In sup-
port of South Dakotas great volun-
teer tradition, Black Hills State
University Retired Senior Volun-
teer Program (RSVP) is looking to
further expand its volunteer coor-
dination program in the Jackson
County area.
BHSU RSVP has been in west-
ern South Dakota for over 38
years--in Jackson County for about
two years. To build their volunteer
database, BHSU RSVP is encour-
aging all people in Jackson County
who are 55 and over, and who are
interested in volunteer service to
join. The more volunteers that are
in the RSVP database, the easier it
is for area nonprofits to find able
and willing volunteers to fill their
volunteer needs.
As RSVP builds volunteers in
Jackson County, the program will
also seek to build partnerships
with Jackson County nonprofits
and proprietary health organiza-
tions. These partnerships allow
RSVP to give their volunteer mem-
bers access to service opportunities
that they otherwise may not know
were available.
RSVP members serve only
where and when they want to, and
can serve as many nonprofits as
they wish. And, while RSVP mem-
bership is free, membership comes
with several perks to include sup-
plemental insurance, mileage reim-
bursements, recognition gifts, and
more. These perks are intended to
help offset some of the incidental
costs that sometimes accompany
volunteer service.
Currently, BHSU RSVP is look-
ing for volunteers to serve in the
Jackson County Library to help in-
ventory books, revise the card cat-
alog system or help with patrons.
Kadoka Nursing Home is looking
for volunteers to help with walks in
the mornings at 10:30, activities in
the afternoons at 2:00 p.m. or gen-
eral visiting at 3:30 p.m. Opportu-
nities also exist in the Kadoka
School for those interested in work-
ing with small children once school
starts in the fall.
To learn more about these oppor-
tunities and RSVP membership
please call BHSU RSVP toll-free at
1-877-293-0039.
He said $4,000 of the grant money
is to go toward the comprehensive
plan. These projects (in the plan)
have been identified long before
planning and zoning, he added.
Later Olney said, Yes, economic
development went to the city for
the comprehensive plan in order to
move forward.
Others commented that Kadoka
is not a big city and the city is
doing okay as it is and they should
stay away from government tactics.
According to Ostea, if the plan
isnt passed there would only be
publication charges.
Some people felt that the city
needs to enforce the ordinances
they have and planning and zoning
will not work.
Another felt this would be a mini
version of Federal government and
they would be allowed more con-
trol.
One questioned if the commu-
nity would come together to make
a place available for a new busi-
ness. However, it was also men-
tioned that Kadoka needs to take
care of the small businesses and let
the big ones go to the large cities.
Looking at it from the economic
development standpoint, Eileen
Stolley said this would be a positive
step for improving the community.
Glenn Freeman asked the city
council not to surrender to high
government. He said he felt the
hiking and bike route along the
railway was the best thing in the
plan. Please put it to the vote of
the people, he added.
Mayor Harry Weller told the
crowd the city would not be making
a decision at this meeting. How-
ever, later at the meeting it was de-
cided to bring it back to the council
table at the next regular meeting
on Monday, August 13.
The council approved an on-off
sale malt beverage and South
Dakota Farm Wine license for Cre-
ative Cuts & Fitness.
Mayola Horst addressed the
council regarding Rangeland Days.
She said Kadoka will be hosting it
next June and they will need a fa-
cility for approximately 140 people
for two days. Weller suggested find-
ing another facility other than the
auditorium due to the work being
done in June. However, he said the
city will try to work with her on the
event once official dates are set.
Patrick Solon said the inside
work has been completed on the
new sewer line at the city shop, but
the lines still need to be tied to-
gether. He said the spare pump at
the lagoon is acting up.
Jorgensen asked how long will
the water department run in the
red?
Jackie Stilwell made note that if
the council reviews the rates, etc.,
that they need to keep in mind that
the city doesnt pay the city for
their own water.
There was no street report, but
Solon was instructed to visit with a
city patron regarding a drainage
issue on a street.
It was noted that there is water
damage at the fire hall and the
sidewalk needs to be redone from
the Masonic Temple to the old tele-
phone office. There was a sugges-
tion that the sidewalk be lowered,
but no action was taken.
Once again the rain gutters at
the transfer station were dis-
cussed. Kieth Prang will check
prices and report back to the coun-
cil.
Under the liquor report, there
was discussion on sponsoring the
Kadoka Merchants softball team in
the amount of $250 which would be
used for tournament fees and T-
shirts. A motion carried to sponsor
the team.
Micki Word had no report for the
pool/auditorium other than patrons
would like to see the pool open
more hours.
Mayor Weller said the old land-
fill weeds need to be cleaned up
and employee evaluations for the
first half of the year need to be
done.
The council set a special meeting
date of Monday, July 23 at 7:00
p.m. to hold a budget meeting.
A public hearing for the plan-
ning and zoning comprehensive
plan, with approximately 27 people
in attendance, started off the regu-
lar meeting of the Kadoka City
Council Monday evening.
Justin Otsea with Central South
Dakota Enhancement District re-
viewed the comprehensive plan,
saying its a vision of the next 20 to
30 years, a guideline for the future
of Kadoka. Passing the plan
doesnt mean the city has to do it.
Its just an engineer plan showing
what can be done, Otsea said.
Because of negative comments
in the past, he said the comprehen-
sive plan is: not federally/state or
regionally mandated; it is not any
kind of financial commitment to
any specific project; not a loss of
power or control from the local
level; and it is not a one-size-fits-all
strategy for all communities.
Ken Wilmarth, chairperson of
the planning and zoning committee
said, Its up to the city to adopt
and work on top projects. He
agreed that there is not enough
money to go around, and the city
would need to prioritize.
City council member Brad Jor-
gensen questioned that this (plan-
ning and zoning) all started with
economic development.
Rusty Olney, who is president of
economic development, said they
coordinated with the state for a cer-
tified ready site. They received
land from the city and two grants.

Church Calendar
Luke 14:12-14
Children aren't the only ones who like to get re-
wards. Our Creator knows that adults are also moti-
vated by incentives. His Word makes exciting promises
for those who walk in His way.
Some of these benefits are available here on earth--like fulfillment, joy, and good favor--and other bless-
ings will be bestowed in heaven. As believers, we need never fear the judgment (Rom. 8:1); we are clothed
in righteousness through the blood of Jesus and will not face divine wrath. But the Lord will weigh the
substance of our works and decide upon the reward we deserve.
To help us understand this, Scripture describes four crowns. The first, which is called incorruptible, is
given to those whose great desire is to walk obediently before God. Through struggles and even failures,
they continue to die to the flesh and follow the Spirit. Second, the crown of life is granted to believers
who stand firm, enduring trials without giving up or losing heart. Third, the crown of righteousness is
bestowed upon those who long for Christ's appearing and walk godly lives through Him. Fourth, God will
give the crown of glory to those who share His Word with others. And as the Bible tells us, we will be
awed by Jesus' glory and honored just to lay our crowns at His feet.
The supreme reward is for us to manifest God's glory throughout eternity. We will experience ultimate
joy in His presence forever, but we don't have to wait: we can invest today by serving Him obediently and
humbly. Done with the right motive, service blesses us now and in our life to come.

Meals for
the Elderly
Sometime in the 1960s I remem-
ber my Dad telling me that he did-
nt need health insurance. He said
that for his efforts in World War II
he was promised to always have
health care when he needed it, and
that it would be provided for free
by our government. He proudly as-
serted that in this country we take
care of our own.
The US Department of Veterans
Affairs, or lovingly known as the
VA, provides for health care of the
soldier after her or his service to
the country. I dont think my Dad
had it quite right about totally free
health care for all retired soldiers,
but I think he was correct about
our country providing care when
needed.
Indeed the VA provides in a very
big way for many men and women
who have given military service to
our country. And the need for espe-
cially rehabilitation type care is on
the rise. During military conflicts
in Iraq and Afghanistan, and be-
cause of superb emergency and in-
tensive modern health treatment
there, soldiers have survived, like
never before, after sustaining
tremendous injuries.
The VA has had to develop and
enhance ways to enable injured
soldiers back to function in society.
This defines rehabilitation, which
is accomplished by providing:
physical therapy to enhance
strength and mobility; occupa-
tional therapy to teach and im-
prove ways to do activities of daily
living; speech and language ther-
apy to augment communication
skills that may have been compro-
mised by injury; and psychiatric
support for those struggling with
post traumatic stress syndrome
and other mental health injuries
resulting from war. Finally, and
perhaps most challenging, rehabil-
itation requires adequate treat-
ment for the physical and
psychological pain resulting from
injuries of combat.
Our country has a special re-
sponsibility for those who we put
in harms way. First to provide the
best emergency and intensive care
possible in order to save their
lives. But then when they do sur-
vive, we need to do everything we
can to provide for rehabilitation. If
we are going to enter into these
conflicts, we had better take care
of our own.

John Carr of White River was
the recipient of the Mr. Spirit
prize in the Ft. Pierre 4th of July
parade. John is full of enthusiasm
for life. He supports many local ac-
tivities with his lively spirit. Jack
and his daughters and families
drove four beautifully matched
black and white horses. They were
pulling the decorated Ft. Pierre
Livestock Auction wagon.
Recently Blaine, Louann, Dan
and Phoebe Krogman of White
River and friends, Darrell and
Joyce Kadel, of Illinois were pas-
sengers on a Princess Cruise Ship
which did the inside passage trip to
Alaska. They flew to Seattle to
board the liner there. They had
great weather for the cruise and
enjoyed a few of the side trips, too,
such as the lumber jack show in
Ketchican, a bit of fishing, and
other sight-seeing trips.
July 3, Doug, Naomi and son,
Michael Krogman, stopped in for a
brief visit and potluck meal at
Clarence Krogmans home. They
had attended Doug and Naomis
daughter, Elizabeths, wedding in
Thayne, WY, and were on the way
to take Michael back to his home in
Tennessee. Those that were there
of Richard, Cliff and Blaines fam-
ily came to visit while they were
there. Noreen brought Kay and
Mikes twins down to visit, too, as
they were with them for a few days.
Blaine and Louann had some
company from North Dakota and
Mitchell help them halter break
some colts on Saturday.
Cliff and Elaine and children
and families all went on a camping
trip prior to the 4th of July.
Richard and Noreen took Mari-
lyn Kent to Rapid City June 26 to
fly back home to California. They
spent the night with Sis and Dale
McKee. June 30, Kay and the twins
arrived for a visit. Kay went back
home July 1, but left the twins be-
hind for a visit until the 4th. When
Richard and Noreen took the twins
and met Mike and Kay in ONiell,
they had lunch with them before
returning home.
Richard and Noreen were
among the many who came to the
open house for Robert and Sharons
50th anniversary Sunday after-
noon at the Norris Township Hall.
Jan Rasmussens niece, Cam,
and her husband, Paul Rogers,
came for a visit and brought with
them a couple from Germany, Mar-
tin and Anna. Martin is a minister
and was very instrumental in Ger-
many at the time of the tearing
down of the Berlin Wall between
east and west Germany, where he
was a moderator/mediator. He re-
ceived an award for all of his work
at that time. They were guests of
Jan on Thursday and Friday. Jan
invited Dan, Dawn and Kate Ras-
mussen and Blake, Amy, Jason and
Patrick Lehman for a meal on
Thursday. They all thoroughly en-
joyed hearing Martin and Anna tell
of things that went on at that time.
Saturday, July 7, the Jake Ring
family reunion was held at the
Norris Township Hall, hosted by
Janice Ring and her daughter,
Melissa, and her children, Kolter
and Kamdyn DeKay, and the
Robert Ring family. There were 41
attending the event. Representing
Erwins family were Marsha and
Jonathan Ring (who had just re-
turned a couple days previously
from a trip on nephew Erics ship
from Hawaii to California), Glen
and Karla Ring and daughter, Car-
men, and family, Erna was there
with daughter, Linda, son, Darrell,
and his daughter and son and their
four children, daughter-in-law,
Tanya Totton, and her daughters,
Gabrielle and Courtney;
Lawrences family included June
and grandson, Matthew, and Bruce
and Jessie Ring and five children;
there were seven of the Robert
Ring extended family, four of
Bernards family, and one, Jan,
from Ruebens family. (Rueben and
Myles were helping the combiners
so Bruce and Torey were free to
come.) Fred Littau stopped in too.
Lori Schmidt and her brother,
Rob, were in Rapid City last week.
Dan, Susan and Morgan Taft
were in Martin on the 4th at the
home of Alvin and Judie Simmons
for a family get together. Cindy and
Chris Knecht and sons of Tuthill
joined them as well as Jeff and
Michelle Simmons of Sturgis. The
Tafts joined the throng at the an-
niversary open house Sunday af-
ternoon.
Rev. Glenn Denke was a guest at
the wedding of Andrew and Skye
(Lindquist) Bork, and the reception
following in Sioux Falls on Satur-
day. He stayed overnight, and then
returned in time to hold services at
St. Peter in rural Midland. How-
ever, at St. John, lay members
Howard Heinert, Bill Huber and
Bruce Ring led the patriotic serv-
ice. Pastor did make it to the 50th
anniversary celebration at Norris
later Sunday afternoon.
Kenda Huber attended the base-
ball game at Wall where her
nephews, Christian and Blaise,
were on the Murdo baseball team.
Murdo won, and then Kenda
brought her nephews home with
her to spend the rest of the week
and weekend. On the 4th, the
Huber family gathered to eat and
visit (but no major fireworks due to
dry conditions). Logan and
Michelle VanderMay and family,
Gary, Chris and Dawn Letellier,
and Herbert Huber joined them,
too. The Hubers are getting the
combines ready to go.
Gary and Anne Heinerts son,
Alex, is in the Ukraine on a mission
trip with 24 others. They left July
3 from Sioux Falls, flying to
Chicago and from there to Munich,
Germany, before heading on to
Kiev. A fellow from their church in
Sioux Falls had gone there a num-
ber of years ago, and then went
back again to start an orphanage.
This group is going over there at
his direction to hold a Bible camp,
as many unchurched there showed
an interest in a Bible camp.
Marilyn Heinerts new hip is
working for her, as she gets around
in the house without a cane. She
felt well enough to ride with Gary
and Anne to Robert and Sharons
open house Sunday afternoon.
Jean Kary was in Kadoka on
business Thursday. Friday she had
a phone call from her daughter,
Rae Staab, that her daughters Eliz-
abeth and Cordelia and friend
Kaitlyn had just returned from a
ten day exploration of England,
Ireland and Scotland.
Sunday Ace and Edna and fam-
ily and Jean and Brant were all at
the anniversary reception for
Robert and Sharon.
Irene Kaufman and daughters,
Marjorie Popkes and Carol Fergu-
son, had a day of shopping in
Valentine Saturday. Sunday after
attending the anniversary open
house, supper guests at Irenes
were Gene and Marjorie Popkes,
Ed and Carol and Pete and Marla
Ferguson.
Pastor Denke visited Bill and
Marjorie Letellier Friday. Coleen
Letellier visited them Sunday
morning.
Saturday, June 30, the Dave and
Gale Letellier families helped Mar-
jorie Letellier celebrate her birth-
day by bringing her cake and
serenading her.
Last Monday JoAnn, Gale,
Coleen and Hailey went to Rapid
City to keep appointments. They
celebrated Garys birthday after
they returned home.
Thursday Jerry, Gale and JoAnn
were in Pierre on business. JoAnn
went to the Fiegum Funeral Home
for the visitation for the Chris
Huse family. He was a brother-in-
law of Marla Huse, who is a friend
of JoAnns, and a state officer of
Master Garderners.
Saturday the Master Gardeners
meeting was held at Mabel
Schmits in Winner. JoAnn stopped
in White River to pick up Donna
Adrian. The lesson given that day
was on New Canning and Preser-
vation Requirements. They also
made and canned hot mustard.
Donna had taken a class in Valen-
tine offered by the Nebraska Ex-
tension Service.
Gale, JoAnn, Gary and Dave
Letellier and family were all in at-
tendance at Robert and Sharons
golden anniversary celebration.
Jeanne Merchens brother, Dan,
and family of Colestrip, MT left
Friday after helping all week with
wheat harvest. Then Harry and
Jeanne headed for the BlackHills
to visit Dawn Koch and family in
Custer, and Darrell and Lynette
Batie and family in Rapid City, re-
turning home Sunday afternoon.
Jeannine Woodward and Rose
West visited Bob and Jean
Magelky in Pierre Sunday. The
Magelkys are getting geared up to
move to Wyoming.
The Bjornstad combine crew of
Walhalla, ND arrived at the Ring
ranch July 3, when the tempera-
ture hit 106 degrees. They did get
in some combining that day, but
the fields they combined had be hit
not only by a late frost, but also
hail storms, so the harvest was
poor. That was true of some of
Ruebens fields and also the field
down by Roberts, but fortunately
the field by the home place was bet-
ter.
July 5, Matthew and June Ring
went on a pie baking binge, pulled
some more weeds while the pies
cooled, and then took them to
Bruce and Jessies for dessert after
supper that evening. Matthews re-
ward, as far as he was concerned,
was getting to ride along with
Uncle Bruce the next day, taking a
packed lunch along, and even get-
ting to ride in the combines.
Stephanie and Ryan had come to
get him right away in the morning
that day.
After the Jake Ring family re-
union at the hall Saturday, there
was a rearranging of tables and
materials, and the hall was then
decorated for the early 50th wed-
ding anniversary of Robert and
Sharon Ring. Sunday noon there
was a meal served to the VanEpp
relatives on Sharons side and the
Ring families on Roberts side.
Sharons brother, Eugene, and wife,
Gay VanEpps, came from Sioux
Falls, and their daughter, Anne
Marie, and her husband, Rick Carr,
came from Nebraska. Brother Ver-
non and his wife, Jean, came from
around Winner. Sharons cousin,
Margie Jensen, and her husband,
Harry, were also there for the meal,
as well as many of the Rings who
had been at the reunion the day be-
fore. At 2:00 the open house and
the deluge began. There were over
120 friends and relatives who ar-
rived to wish Robert and Sharon
well. Many cousins came from the
Winner area and beyond, Norris
and White River. There was a reg-
ular stream of well-wishers all af-
ternoon coming and going from all
around the country.
Some former community mem-
bers who came were Emma Waack
and her daughters, Dorothy and
Mildred, and Ida Karlin and her
daughter, Eunice. The three
daughters of Edgar and Lorrain
Waack made it from Pierre for the
afternoon, too Carol and Debbie
Peterson and Donna Sanborn.
Friday morning, Ed and Carol
Ferguson took their Jeep to Winner
to be repaired along with a critter
to be butchered. Pete and Marla
followed with the flatbed to haul
home a tractor that had been in the
shop there. Carol was back in the
Norris Post Office in the afternoon
for some training for Susan Taft.
Pete and Marla Ferguson, Ed
and Carol Ferguson, Irene Kauf-
man and Margie and Gene Popkes
were among those attending the
50th anniversary celebration for
Robert and Sharon Ring on Sun-
day. Jes Ferguson stopped mid-
combining to run in to the
celebration, too.
Although JaLynn Burmas birth-
day was July 2, not everyone was
around, so it wasnt celebrated
until the 3rd when the Beckwiths,
Burmas and Julie could join in
with Jim and Marjorie Letellier to
have her birthday party. On the
4th, Jim, Marjorie, Julie, Andrea
Beckwith and Jakki Burma drove
to Interior for the fireworks display
there.
The Norris Blackpipe commu-
nity celebrated the 4th with ball
games and fireworks.
Friday the Burmas and Jim,
Marjorie and Julie Letellier went
to Martin and Kyle to watch the
Blackpipe youth play baseball.
They played two games and lost
both, ending up playing under the
lights and didnt get home until
after midnight. However, they
came back strong the next after-
noon and defeated a Hot Springs
team 25-1.
Friday night after the games,
JaLynn and Jakki Burma went
home with Julie Letellier to Kil-
gore, and the next morning headed
into Valentine for the citywide
rummage sale going on throughout
the city.
Sunday afternoon Jim and Mar-
jorie Letellier and Jason and Ja-
Lynn Burma were among the
crowd at Robert and Sharon Rings
golden a anniversary open house at
the Norris Township Hall.
A man should know how to
whittle and spit. Thats according
to the advice given by Professor
Harold Hill to the boy, Winthrop,
in the movie, The Music Man.
This sounds right to Winthrop, and
he immediately sets out to learn
these skills. He claims before long
that hes already getting pretty
good at spitting. He doesnt make
similar claims about whittling, but
hes quite taken with the big
pocket knife Professor Hill had
given him.
Ive noticed, generally speaking,
that the joys of spitting seems
somewhat more important to men
than to women. Im not sure why.
Personally, Im fairly good at it. I
have a range of ten to twelve feet
on a good day when my throat is
manufacturing the right kind of
ammunition. Naturally, that is
with the wind since spitting into
the wind is seldom a good idea un-
less there are only gentle zephyrs
instead of our normal hefty
breezes.
If you want to improve your ac-
curacy at spitting, there is proba-
bly no better way than with
watermelon seeds. You can park on
the porch and see how close you
can come to some target youve set
up such as a can, a box, or just a
circle drawn in the dirt. There is
one caution concerning this, how-
ever, and it involves being careful
that you dont breathe in too
quickly and lodge a seed in your
windpipe. Other than that, there
isnt much danger involved unless
it irritates someone who thinks
spitting is disgusting. There are
some of those kinds of people
around. Tut, tut.
When it comes to whittling,
alas, I have very little natural abil-
ity. About the only thing Ive ever
done in that direction is peeling
the bark from willow sticks and
sharpening the points. These ac-
tions provide a good implement for
roasting hot dogs or marshmallows
over a campfire.
If youre trying to carve out the
figure of a horse, or fish or bird,
though, that does appear to be
somewhat more difficult. Standard
advice is that you just cut off
everything that doesnt look like a
horse or whatever it is youve set
out to carve. There must be some-
thing more to it than that, I sus-
pect, since that process has never
worked all that well for me.
Then, too, Im somewhat para-
noid about using sharp tools on
hard objects since fingers some-
times get damaged along the way.
Ive spent way too many hours
training these fingers of mine to
play the piano to see them need-
lessly damaged. As a result, Ive
rejected the idea that men should
know how to whittle. Instead, Ive
changed one letter in whittle and
come up with whistle. Now
whistling is something I can do. It
isnt a talent thats in popular de-
mand, as far as I can tell, but my
efforts sound pretty good to me
when Im whistling along with the
radio or a CD while running down
the freeway.
I first started trying to make
these sounds through pursed lips
in first grade when my teacher,
who was also my cousin Marilyn,
was my example. She lived with us
and drove my sister and me some
five miles to the schoolhouse in an
old jeep that had no radio. As a re-
sult, she often whistled to keep us
entertained, and she was quite
good at it. She even added vibrato
which is a normal thing to do in
most singing but not always in
whistling. I still use vibrato since
it seems more pleasing than just a
straight tone.
Unfortunately, as far as I can
tell, the human mouth doesnt
pucker to extremes so my tones
only bridge a little over an octave.
If the song Im dealing with gets
too high or low, then I have to drop
or raise an octave, but, when
youre by yourself, who cares?
I would like some day to learn
how to do that really loud whistle
that a few people do by putting two
fingers between their lips. Ive
never figured out the mechanics of
that or known anyone who could
teach me how to do it. Its a useful
tool for quieting a bunch of people
for an announcement, or just to get
immediate attention when it is
needed in an emergency or a tricky
situation. Not many people know
how to do it, and I guess Ill have
to go out and beat the bushes to
find someone who can if I ever
want to learn the procedure.
So guys, its important to learn
how to spit, and you might also
want to learn how to whittle or
whistle, take your choice. You gals
are welcome to join in these pur-
suits as well. You just never know
when a learned skill might come in
terribly handy (at least to avoid
boredom if nothing else.)
Whittle and Spit
Lookin Around
by Syd Iwan
Jim, Fayola and Aaron Mans-
field traveled to Cherokee, IA, a
week ago to attend the funeral of
Jims brother-in-law, Ray
Flewelling. They went on Friday
and stayed overnight with Jims
brother, Richard, in Sioux City be-
fore attending the funeral the next
day in Cherokee. They returned
home Saturday evening. This
weekend, Michelle and Tyrel
Mansfield went to Rapid City to see
Michelles folks and also two of her
brothers who were there from Wis-
consin and Georgia. The Georgia
brother and family also came here
for a visit. Fayola said that their
daughter, Allison, and family were
in some danger from fire there in
Wyoming. They had packed up in
case they needed to evacuate, but
the blazes were controlled, in part
by cooler weather and some rain,
before doing a lot of damage.
Former residents, Chris and
Diana Elwood, were not so lucky
with fire. The place where they live
and work in Montana was largely
burned although the houses were
saved. It was even unclear for a
while as to where the cattle had
gotten themselves off to.
Chuck Fortune reports they
branded twice this last week and
are now done with that. Fortunes
dont start calving until May 1 so
they brand later as well. Some of
the calves were pretty good size al-
ready but still manageable. Chuck
said this kept the cooks on alert all
week, but the needed meals were in
fact prepared and consumed as
needed.
John Addison is back in the
rodeo game after being out of it for
quite a while due to a dislocated
shoulder. Over the weekend of the
fourth, he rode bareback in five
rodeos in Dickenson, Killdeer, and
Mandan, North Dakota, as well as
in South Dakota events at Mo-
bridge and Ft. Pierre. He did the
best at Mobridge. John said this
isnt a quick way to make money,
but you can make some from time
to time. His wife and child thought
five rodeos were a bit much in such
a short time and decided to stay at
home instead of going along.
Jim Addison waited all week for
his daughter, Jami, to get home
from camping with family and
friends over by Pierre, and she did
return on Sunday. On Monday,
however, she was taking off again
for a week in White River where
she will attend basketball camp.
Shell be staying there with the
Neal Krogman family since they
have a daughter her age. On Sun-
day, Jami turned thirteen so Jim
and Georgann again have a
teenager in the house. The whole
family spent a weekend and the
4th near Pierre camping. This is a
yearly thing when various families
from Murdo and other places get
together for a few days. Sometimes
there are up to eight families al-
though this year was only four.
Georganns son, Matt, came to the
camp for a few days as well. Geor-
gann also traveled to Rapid City on
Friday to do some barrel racing.
Scot and Jodie OBryan had
their daughter, Faye, and kids
home for a day or so last week.
Jodies sister from Oklahoma also
came to visit. The fun night
OBryans have for local people and
kids wasnt that big the last time
due to heat and people being busy
with the 4th, but a bigger group is
expected this week. The event is
held every other week and entails
various cowboy events for all ages.
Bunny Green had a nice sur-
prise after church on Sunday. Five
generations of her offspring came
to visit. Her daughter, Darlene
Wiedemer, was there plus her
daughter, Cindy. Cindys daughter,
Carla, was there plus her daughter,
Destiny. Destiny had her new baby
with her. Naturally, they had to go
outside on the porch and take a six-
generation photograph. This would
tend to indicate that Bunny is a
great-great-great grandmother
(three greats.) Cindys daughter,
Kiesha, was also there with her
new baby. Other spouses and kids
came as well. The visitors brought
dinner which included fried
chicken, salad and lots of other
stuff. The family planned it to be a
surprise, and it was. Most of the
visitors, except Darlene, are from
Belle Fourche. Bunny said her son,
Gary, called from Idaho on Sunday.
He had been visited by his daugh-
ter from Oklahoma, and they went
to the place 50 miles from Boise
that Gary is fixing up for when he
retires from his position as boss at
a large mine.
Eric and Pam Osborn attended
a fish fry on Sunday at Randy Pe-
ters on Main Street. Greg Badure
was also there and others. Dana
Badure wasnt there as she and the
kids were returning from Maine
and a visit to her father. Rhonda
Terkildsen went with them. While
Dana was gone, Eric, Wally Wells,
and others were helping tend her
goats who have become pretty good
at escaping their pen. Back at
home, Eric and Pam arent too
hopeful about their garden which is
being invaded by grasshoppers and
such. Pam continues to work at
1880 Town, and Eric is back to
working at Moses Building Center
in Philip after being gone from
there for over a year. He has been
back a couple of months now. Over
the 4th, Eric visited his mom and
sister in Rapid City.
Ronda and Rick Dennis had
company over the holiday, namely
four of Rondas cousins, Karla,
Claudine, Jennifer, Renae and
their children. In addition grand-
children, Carter and Taya Iversen
were there, too. On Thursday, they
played tourists at Wall Drug, had a
BBQ that evening. Lori Iversen
was able to join the group that
evening. On Saturday they all went
to the 1880 Town before the cousins
returned to Miller.
Rudy Reimann spent the week-
end camping and fishing on the
Missouri by the Oahe Dam. Andy
and Kerri Schofield and kids were
also there and Casey Sammons
plus Rudys brother, Forrest, from
Sundance, WY. They caught a lot of
walleyes, some small-mouth bass
and others and limited out one day.
Rudy said he should have stayed
home and baled some hay, but it
was time for a vacation. He said it
was pretty nice weather, and he
had a good weekend.
Going for the victory This young pitcher, Tavern Hart,
throws a strike in a game when Blackpipe won against Hot Springs in
Martin. The game ended in a 25-1 win for Blackpipe.

Its More Than a Place ... West
River, is a historical synopsis of
the Grindstone area. The book has
been released by local resident and
now published author, Ruby
Gabriel.
After Gabriel snapped a sunrise
silhouette photo of the Pleasant
Valley School building on Christ-
mas morning, 2007, her sister com-
mented that someone should tell
the stories of the area before those
stories were lost. Within the next
few months, Gabriel discovered in
her fathers desk drawer the his-
tory of her country school, thus fur-
ther intriguing her sense of history.
Soon after that, a King family de-
scendent now living out of state
visited the old Dowling Church. He
had memories of it from when he
was only six years old. Gabriel un-
locked the building and allowed
him and his wife in, where the man
reminisced. A few weeks later,
Gabriel received from him a copy of
Bessie Kings old family diary,
which contained a wealth of history
on the area. Gabriel set out to be
that someone to tell the stories.
The cover of the 100-page book
displays the photo that started the
project. The stories inside take the
reader back to when the developing
community was part of the Great
Sioux Reservation. Though the
books direction is varied, every-
thing in here goes together, said
Gabriel, who clarified, I wanted to
write about ranching. The indexed
documentation uses old newspaper
clippings, mostly from the South
Dakota Historical Society Archives,
diaries, local records, cemetery list-
ings and recollections of older resi-
dents of the Grindstone area.
After the research, I almost feel
like I was there when this hap-
pened, said Gabriel. I just feel
God has lead me to do this. He gave
me a wonderful sunrise, and he
gave me these people who were lost
on the steps of the Dowling
Church.
I couldnt gather all the infor-
mation and retell the stories of
Jamie Leaghton Gilmore better
than was done by the newspapers,
said Gabriel, who included stories
of Gilmore and three other histori-
cal murderers. She noted that the
town of Philips namesake, Scotty
Philip, was the executor of the
property of Mexican Ed, who was
shot dead during a poker game.
The information runs the gamut
of 710 rabbits being killed during a
two-day hunt, to poetry about the
old schoolhouse chalkboard, to obit-
uaries of people in the Dowling
Community Church Cemetery.
Theres a whole section of babies
buried out there. Its very sad, said
Gabriel. In putting the book to-
gether, Gabriel said, I had a won-
derful time. I think if you are going
to be addicted to something, history
is a great thing.
One of the quoted early newspa-
pers was The Grindstone Bee. The
whole thing was a hoot, said
Gabriel, who found that the papers
owner, William Henry Bruno,
would publish whenever I feel like
it or have time to waste. He would
barter for payment, but would not
accept prunes. Newspapers were
important in the areas early his-
tory because the Homesteading Act
required potential landowners to
publish their stakes in a newspa-
per five consecutive times.
Gabriel has been asked to hold
book signings, at Stoneville, July
21, at Chamberlain where the book
was printed, and tentatively at
Union Center. She is already work-
ing on her next book, about ghost
towns of Meade and Perkins coun-
ties.

SPECIAL MEETING
BOARD OF JACKSON
COUNTY COMMISSIONERS
June 29, 2012
The Board of Jackson County Commis-
The Board of Jackson County Commis-
sioners met in special session at 3:00
p.m., Friday, June 29, 2012 in the Com-
missioner's Room of the Jackson County
Courthouse. Chairman Jim Stilwell called
the meeting to order with members Glen
Bennett, Delores Bonenberger, Larry
Denke and Ron Twiss present.
All motions carried unanimously unless
otherwise noted.
Sheriff Clements met with the board. He
informed the board that Deputy Ian
Patrick has submitted written resignation
and his last day of work will be August
21, 2012. Bonenberger moved, Twiss
seconded, that the resignation be ac-
cepted.
Bonenberger moved, Twiss seconded,
that Sheriff Clements advertise the
Deputy Sheriff position in the Kadoka
Press and statewide classifieds.
Vicki Wilson, Auditor, informed the board
that both the Director of Equalization and
Highway Department employment ads
have ended, and inquired as to whether
the board wanted the ads published
again. Denke moved, Bennett seconded,
that the Highway Department employ-
ment ad be continued in the Kadoka
Press and statewide classifieds.
Twiss moved, Bonenberger seconded,
that further personnel matters be tabled
until the end of the meeting.
Denke moved, Stilwell seconded, that
old, non-working computer equipment be
declared surplus and taken to the dump
for disposal.
The draft 2013 Jackson County budget
was reviewed. Discussion was held on
prior years unexpended budget amounts.
Bennett stated he would like to see the
county placing funds into Capital Outlay
funds for equipment, bridges, and build-
ing upkeep, and that he would like to see
funds placed in CDs. Vicki Wilson, Audi-
tor, informed the board she will make ad-
justments to line items for group health
insurance in all departmental budgets,
and will complete the means of finance
section of the proposed budget.
Marlene Knutson, Central S. D. En-
hancement District met with the board.
Discussion was held on the CDB grant
process. She informed the board that
whether the board buys a building or
whether the board builds on current site,
an appraisal will need to be done. Con-
struction of a new building or remodeling
of an acquired building will require an ar-
chitect or engineer. All such items will be
done following a bidding process.
Discussion was held on information ob-
tained concerning the proposed Library
building project. Estimates received on
construction of a new building proposed
for the current location of the Library
were reviewed. Bennett reported that the
estimates include concrete, plumbing,
and wiring for the proposed new building.
Bennett also reported he has contacted
Joe Handrahan and he would be willing
to sell his property north of the Library to
the county. Denke reported that he has
contacted the owners of the property that
currently houses the FSA office, Jackson
County Conservation District and Family
Youth Services and they are willing to sell
their property to the county.
The board recessed for supper and re-
convened at 7:00 p.m. in the Courtroom
to hold public meetings for input on ob-
taining a Community Development Block
Grant for the Library, drivers licensing
services and other public comments. All
board members were present. Marlene
Knutson, Central S. D. Enhancement
District was present. Thirty-seven citi-
zens appeared for the public meetings.
One option for replacing the current Li-
brary building would be to demolish the
current building and build on the current
location. Estimates for the construction
of a building on site totals $195,146.
Construction costs would increase up to
30% if federal specifications would need
to be met for a grant. Construction costs
could increase up to 30% due to close
proximity to other buildings on both sides
of the current building. Joe Handrahan
has informed the county he would be will-
ing to sell his three lots to the north of the
Library to the county to construct a new
Library building. Proposed cost of the lots
is $15,000.
Purchasing the additional lots would
keep construction costs down.
A second option proposed for housing
the Library would be to purchase the
building at 805 Main Street which cur-
rently houses the FSA office, Jackson
County Conservation District and Family
Youth Services. The owners are willing to
sell their property to the county at a pro-
posed cost of $200,000. Report was
made that some remodeling would need
to be done, and possibly installation of
new heating, air conditioning, and plumb-
ing which could add another $50,000 to
the project. Report was made that the
owners would be willing to include addi-
tional lots next to their building if the
county would be willing to trade their cur-
rent site and lots they may acquire from
Joe Handrahan.
Marlene Knutson reviewed the Commu-
nity Development Block Grant Program
and indicated that Jackson County is el-
igible to apply as the county is approxi-
mately 70% low and moderate income
according to 2000 Census information.
Knutson informed all present that the
Community Development Block grant
would be an approximately 50 50
matching grant. With a total project cost
of $300,000 the county would provide
$150,000 in matching funds. She re-
ported that an appraisal by a certified ap-
praiser will be required if the project
involves the purchase of a building, and
engineers/architects are required for re-
modeling and new construction. She re-
ported that the grant application deadline
is July 15, 2012.
Discussion was held on funding for the
Library project. Information was prepared
showing tax increase with a $50,000 opt
out of the tax limitation and it was given
to persons in attendance. Using current
year tax levies, the county tax would in-
crease $3.26 on $10,000 of property
value. Vicki Wilson, Auditor, reported that
BankWest would be willing to loan funds
to the county if they could provide proof
of ability to pay, such as an opt out. Ben-
nett informed the group that state law al-
lows for counties to obtain loans for up to
a period of 30 years for Library building
purposes. Denke stated that should the
county decide to purchase the building at
805 Main Street, there would be rent rev-
enue from the NRCS / Soil Conservation
and the Youth and Family Services of-
fices. Bonenberger reported that citizens
have stated they would donate funds if
the Library remained downtown on Main
Street. Vicki Wilson reported that should
the county decide an opt out will be re-
quired for financing the project, the dead-
line for opt out resolutions is July 15,
2012. Pros and cons of an opt out of the
tax limitation were discussed.
Brad Stone, Director of Equalization, re-
ported on assessed valuation of similar
lots and properties within Kadoka.
Discussion was held on the county ac-
quiring the building at 805 Main Street
versus constructing on the current site.
The ability to move into a building without
the Library services being discontinued
for a long period of time, no storage of Li-
brary contents, and allowing the NRCS /
Soil Conservation and Youth and Family
Services to remain at their current loca-
tions were of main concern. Following
discussion, it was consensus of citizens
in attendance that it would be most ben-
eficial if the county were to purchase the
current building located at 805 Main
Street.
Marlene Knutson requested information
from the group as to items for the Com-
munity Development Housing Needs
Plan. Needs were identified, prioritized
by group consensus and ways to imple-
ment the concerns were noted: Needs in
priority order were: library facilities, hous-
ing shortage, ambulance facility, roads,
and economic development and tourism.
Inquiry was made as to whether the
county was considering relocating the
Community Action Program, which is lo-
cated in the rear of the current Library
building. The board stated there would
be no unoccupied space at the new
building.
The board requested that letters of sup-
port on the Library project be received by
the county no later than July 9, 2012 and
that they can be mailed to PO Box 280,
Kadoka, SD 57543.
At 8:00 p.m. discussion began on
whether Jackson County should continue
to provide drivers licensing services for
the S. D. Dept. of Public Safety. The
board explained that the county receives
$5.00 per application, and the amount
the county retains is much smaller than
the amount forwarded on to the state.
The county requested the county retain
one-half of the license fee, but the state
has declined the countys request. State
law does not allow for the county to as-
sess an additional fee. A report showing
driver license fees collected over the past
three and one-half years was prepared
and given to those in attendance.
The board explained that the two offices
that are providing the services are dis-
rupted from work they need to be doing
in their offices, so the board is looking at
hiring a person to assist in both the Reg-
ister of Deeds and Director of Equaliza-
tion offices. Report was made that since
more documentation is now required to
obtain a drivers license, the coping ma-
chine is used more and county paper is
being used. Report was made that the
Sheriff, Deputy Sheriff, Kadoka Chief of
Police, Terry Deuter, and Brad Stone are
certified to provide driving tests.
Mitzi Mitchell reported that driver li-
censes may be obtained from 8:00 a.m.
until noon, and 1:00 p.m. until 3:30 p.m.
After 3:30 p.m. the office in Pierre has
closed and they have no way to verify
needed information. Report was made
that the state provides the service in a
few surrounding communities, but for lim-
ited hours, one day per month. Mitzi
Mitchell also reported that since birth cer-
tificates and marriage licenses are now
required to obtain a drivers license,
those documents are being obtained
through her in the Register of Deeds of-
fice.
Persons in attendance informed the
board that they prefer coming to Kadoka
to obtain their drivers license versus
going to Rapid City or Pierre, and feel
that persons outside Jackson County feel
the same. They informed the board that
other businesses in Kadoka benefit from
persons coming to Kadoka to obtain their
drivers license. Persons in attendance
inquired as to whether other county office
staff could assist with the drivers licens-
ing. Comment was made that this is a
service to the public, and the county
should not expect to make money on
providing the service.
It was consensus of the public in atten-
dance that Jackson County continue to
provide the drivers licensing service.
The final topic of discussion at the public
meeting was whether courthouse county
controlled offices should remain open
over the noon hour. The Commissioners
have received requests that offices re-
main open by persons coming from the
rural areas of the county, needing to
complete business while in town, and
one suggestion was made that the
county offices remain open over the noon
hour during the summer months.
Comments from the public in attendance
began with suggestion that office staff
take lunch break at different times. In-
quiry was made as to when the county
offices began closing for lunch break, as
over thirty years ago the offices were
open over the noon hour. Comment was
also made by a person in attendance that
county office staff normally do office
banking and get their office mail during
their lunch break. Inquiry was made as to
whether the county has ever made public
notice of office hours. Another comment
from a person in attendance was made
that if a citizen comes in a few minutes
before noon, the county office staff stays
to wait on that person, and the same is
true if they come in a few minutes before
closing at the end of the day.
County office staff gave response as to
being open over the noon hour, and then
closing the office when the only other of-
fice staff member is sick or on vacation,
causing frustration for the citizens be-
cause the office was supposed to be
open but now it is closed. The Register
of Deeds and Director of Equalization of-
fices currently have one person in each
office, so those offices would be closed
for lunch break even if other offices were
open over the noon hour.
Comment was made from a person in at-
tendance that they felt it would be best if
the offices remained closed over the
noon hour, that way everyone would
know county offices are closed at noon
and it would be less confusing or frustrat-
ing.
The board asked for a show of hands on
courthouse county offices being close
during the noon hour. Following the show
of hands it was determined that court-
house county offices continue to remain
closed during the noon hour.
The board resumed their special meeting
in the Commissioners Room.
Report was made that Andrea Johnston
has declined Jackson Countys offer of
position in the Director of Equalization of-
fice. Applications received for office staff
in the Director of Equalization office were
reviewed. Discussion was held on the
person filling the position being willing to
become a certified assessor, and also
the need for the person to fill the position
of part-time Deputy Register of Deeds.
Denke moved, Twiss seconded, that the
Clerk / Deputy Director of Equalization
and part-time Deputy Register of Deeds
position be offered to Rose Bennett. Vicki
Wilson, Auditor, suggested the board
refer to the personnel policy. Roberts
Rule of Order was discussed. Motion
carried with the following vote: Bennett,
abstaining; Bonenberger, nay; Denke,

A. Rangeland Days/Mayola Horst: Soils
and Rangeland Days are scheduled to
be held in Kadoka in June, 2013. There
will be approximately 120-130 people in-
volved over a 2 day period and Horst is
arranging host sites within Kadoka for the
events. She stated that they would like to
use the auditorium for two days (either
June 11 and 12 or June 18 and 19). The
auditorium is scheduled for the installa-
tion of a fire alarm system in early sum-
mer of 2013, but the council consensus
was that we will try to work the installa-
tion process around this event. Horst will
notify the Finance Officer once the spe-
cific dates are set.
COUNCIL REPORTS:
A. Water/Sewer: Work is being done on
the sewer line at the city shop. The pump
at the lagoon doesnt always work cor-
rectly and consideration should be given
to purchasing a spare pump.
B. Streets: The sidewalk in front of the
fire hall was discussed. Repairs (or re-
placement) of the existing sidewalk are
needed and will be addressed during the
upcoming budget meeting.
C. Solid Waste: Kieth will check on the
cost of repair or replacement of the gut-
ters on the north side of the transfer sta-
tion and advise the council of the cost.
D. Liquor: There was a request to spon-
sor a softball team at the state softball
tournament. The request was for
$250.00. After discussion, Stolley made
Motion 12-07-19:77 to approve the spon-
sorship of the softball team. The motion
was seconded by Word. A roll call vote
was taken, with all members voting yes
and the motion carried 6-0. The repair of
the sidewalk in front of the bar was dis-
cussed.
E. Auditorium/Park: no report
F. Public Safety: The monthly report was
distributed.
G. Mayors Report: The mayor discussed
cleanup of the old landfill area north of
the sports complex from the gun club to
the transfer station. The mayor also re-
minded council members to complete the
evaluations of their respective city em-
ployees. After discussion, a special
budget meeting was set for Monday July
23, 2012, at 7:00 pm.
Willert made Motion 12-07-09:78 to ad-
journ. The motion was seconded by
Word, with all members voting yes and
the meeting was adjourned at 8:30 p.m.

The Department of Health is
asking physicians to be alert for
syphilis cases after receiving re-
ports of the disease in eastern
South Dakota. Seven cases of early
syphilis have been reported and
three cases of late, or hidden,
syphilis, which occurs when early
stages of the disease are not
treated.
The last outbreak was in 2006-
2007 when 30 cases were reported.
Last year there were no cases.
Ninety percent of the current
cases are male and all are white.
The median age is 46, with cases
ranging in age from 23 to 60.
Primarily a sexually transmit-
ted disease, syphilis is a bacterial
infection. Transmission by sexual
contact requires exposure to moist
lesions of skin or mucous mem-
branes. If a pregnant woman has
syphilis the disease may spread to
the fetus.
The first symptom is usually a
painless sore at the site of initial
contact. About six weeks later, a
rash may appear on any part of the
body: trunk, arms, legs, palms,
soles, etc. Other, more generalized
symptoms can include tiredness,
fever, sore throat, headaches,
hoarseness, loss of appetite and
swollen glands. The final stage of
syphilis can damage the central
nervous system, heart and eyes
and can even cause death. Genital
chancres, or sores, caused by
syphilis also allow easier transmis-
sion of HIV.
Syphilis can be prevented by ab-
stinence. Sexually active individu-
als can reduce their risk of the
disease by maintaining a mutually
monogamous relationship, limiting
sex partners, and using condoms.
For more information about
syphilis and its prevention, visit
the Department of Health website
doh.sd.gov/DiseaseFacts/Syphilis.a
spx or the Centers for Disease Con-
trol and Prevention site at
www.cdc.gov/std/syphilis/.

Senior Chair Exercises
Do you want good health in your
Golden years? If youre no longer
actively working, these are the
years to do the things youve al-
ways wanted to do, such as spend-
ing quality time with your
grandchildren or travel to your
Bucket List locations. Staying fit
in your golden years is a goal we
can all strive for.
As you age, do the things you
like to do and stay independent, by
being physically active. Regular
exercise can reduce the risk of de-
veloping some diseases. In some
cases it can help manage chronic
conditions such as heart disease,
arthritis, or diabetes. Being physi-
cally active can also improve mood
and reduce feelings of depression.
Thirty minutes of moderate physi-
cal activity daily is recommended.
Plan to talk to your doctor before
joining a vigorous exercise pro-
gram if you have any of the follow-
ing health issues such as recent
hip or back surgery, dizziness or
shortness of breath, chest pain, or
any other concerns. Your doctor
may want to provide you with
safety tips to assist with managing
your physical activity.
Do you have a favorite straight-
back chair that you enjoy using to
read a book or watch television?
Maybe its time to re-purpose your
chair and use it for exercising.
Chair exercises allow senior adults
to exercise and move without put-
ting strain and pressure on their
bodies.
Here is a simple chair exercise
to try. Place your feet flat on the
floor while sitting tall in a chair.
While looking forward, gently pull
in your stomach, which maintains
the strength of the muscles that
support the hip, spine and shoul-
der. This improves posture and in-
creases upper body strength.
Sit upright in your chair for an-
other chair exercise. Place your
hand on your thigh and slowly
raise your other hand, stretching
your fingers towards the ceiling;
youll feel a stretch in your waist.
Repeat on each side and hold for a
maximum of 15 seconds each time.
To ensure that youre safe and
healthy while exercising, remem-
ber to wear lightweight, loose-fit-
ting clothing and proper shoes that
offer safety and support while you
are working out. Also, drink water,
before, during and after exercise.
Request a free copy of Exercise
& Physical Activity: Your Everyday
Guide from the National Institute
on Aging from
http://1.usa.gov/tz8JiB or down-
load and print your own copy. The
guide shows visuals for a variety of
exercises. Being physically active
is for everyone. Even small in-
creases in activity can be big steps
toward being more physically ac-
tive.

Glyphosate Resistant Kochia
Glyphosate resistant kochia
was first confirmed in South
Dakota in the Gettysburg area in
2009. A few additional cases were
confirmed in 2010 and 2011. In
2012, resistant populations
seemed to expand greatly and it
appears to exist in Tripp County.
Seed from suspected plants are
planned to be submitted to SDSU
for testing later this summer. One
agronomist stated that he will
likely treat all soybean fields as if
the kochia is glyphosate resistant
next year. This change in kochia
may justify more aggressive man-
agement in soybeans and rota-
tional crops.
Kochia has two weaknesses
which must be exploited. One is
that kochia seed has very little
dormancy as seed may only sur-
vive in the soil for a couple years.
The second weakness is that
kochia emerges very early in the
spring, so populations could be
greatly depleted in no-till fields
using an effective burndown herbi-
cide.
Mike Moechnig, SDSU Exten-
sion Weed Specialist, suggests
management strategies for
glyphosate resistant kochia. A good
burndown herbicide program that
includes foliar and soil residual ac-
tivity may greatly minimize plants
emerging later in the season. A soil
residual herbicide will be neces-
sary to control glyphosate resist-
ant kochia in soybeans. Since the
seed does not survive long in the
soil, it will be important to aggres-
sively control kochia in rotational
crops such as corn or wheat.
Kochia will not likely be eradi-
cated from a field, but greatly de-
pleting the seed bank may allow
adequate control in Roundup
Ready soybeans with a soil resid-
ual herbicide followed by a post-
emergence tank mix partner if
necessary. Also, consider alterna-
tives such as Liberty Link soy-
beans.

kochia and other troublesome
weeds, visit South Dakota Weeds

Canada Thistle in
South Dakota
Canada thistle is the most trou-
blesome noxious weed in South
Dakota. That is certainly true in
south-central South Dakota as I
see numerous patches in my trav-
els between home and my office in
Winner. Populations increased ex-
ponentially from the 1950's to
2000. Since then, populations have
remained somewhat steady at
about 1.5 - 1.8 million acres.
Populations have likely been
kept steady due to declining acres
of pasture and grasslands (result-
ing from increased crop produc-
tion) and the introduction of new,
more effective, herbicides. There
are few sustainable methods to
control Canada thistle. Biocontrol
options are limited due to Canada
thistle's close relationship to na-
tive thistles. Thick grass can com-
pete well with Canada thistle, but
disturbances due to grazing or
haying can enable patches to
spread. To really deplete Canada
thistle, all land owners need to ag-
gressively control patches.
An effective control program
consists of proper choice of herbi-
cides, proper timing of applica-
tions, and persistence. For detailed
information on herbicides and ap-
plication timing, visit South
Dakota Weeds at:
