Thats what we did, and it worked a treat. The same storm, of course, lifted the roof off the shed at the river place, tossed it over north to- wards the river and damaged a tractor in the process. This wasnt so great, but the rain was wel- comed.
At least the strong wind didnt hurt Ted or damage his nearby house. The main problem with all this is having to reschedule branding. We had the help lined up, the fire- wood, vaccine, food for the crew and other supplies all ready to go, and now we have to fall back and regroup.
The firewood isnt going anywhere. It just has to dry out. The crew can be harder to resched- ule since there are lots of brand- ings at this time of year which makes it tricky to find enough available guys on any given date.
Some of the food can be frozen and hauled out again later, but you cant keep potato salad very long or refreeze thawed beef roasts. Nevertheless, getting some mois- ture was worth a lot. We were starting to fuss about the lack thereof. A few ranchers were even selling some of their cattle due to a shortage of feed caused by getting little hay last year and not having much of anything growing yet this year.
We did have a heavy snow re- cently, but that never brings much growth on the prairie until we get a good rain. Now, perhaps we are getting somewhere. Thanks to a long dry spell not that long ago, we do have the capa- bility of pumping water from wells to tanks in various pastures. This cost a pretty penny, as you might imagine, but it got us through. We can use those systems again if ab- solutely necessary, but they dont do much good if there isnt any grass.
Critters seem to need both feed and water. In this area where the annual rainfall only averages about eight- een inches or so, we are never all that far from drought. It worries us somewhat from time to time.
We dont expect lush pastures, but we do require some growth to stay in business. It was starting to get a little scary again this spring until just lately.
Now we feel quite a bit better despite having to postpone our branding and replace the shed roof. Many areas of the world have the opposite problem than we do.
They get so much constant rain that the places turn into jungles. Im not into jungles all that much and actually love our somewhat arid prairies. Its just when it gets too arid here that I fuss and start seriously applying myself to prayer. I recall the summer I spent in Georgia by the edge of a wooded area which includes most of Geor- gia it seems.
When two other guys and I moved in there for Navy sup- ply school in March or April, I thought, It will be fun to walk around in the woods this summer. Boy, was I wrong.
When warmer much warmer weather arrived complete with almost daily rains, the woods became a jungle. You could barely walk through without a machete. Not that you would want to anyway since the hoards of huge mosquitoes could practically eat you up alive. Air conditioned places proved to be more enjoyable than overgrown outdoor locations. There was also that place I vis- ited in Hawaii where the average rainfall was over an inch a day.
Can you imagine what that would do here? Our little rivers would get as big as the Missouri, and you wouldnt be able to drive anywhere that wasnt paved. In this area, we think that it takes about 20 to 25 acres to sup- port one cow for a year. We are used to that and think it com- pletely normal. East of us just a lit- tle, they need a lot fewer acres per critter, but that just turns them into wimps who dont know how to deal with lots of land.
It also means many more people can live in the area and still support themselves, which is a decided disadvantage as far as Im concerned. Give me the wide open unpopulated areas, and Im happy as a clam. Incidentally, the one prairie res- ident that might not be too happy with the recent rainfall would be the yucca plants of which we have more that a few.
Those things put on their very best flower shows in dry years so that may now be in jeopardy. Theyll still flower but maybe not with abandon. Brandings, of course, can be rescheduled. Ours is now set for the last day of this month. All the other dates between now and then were pretty much already taken.
It might not rain again that day, or maybe it will. If we get into June too far, the calves might get so big that well have to have really big, strong wrestlers to hold them down, but somehow well get by.
We always have in the past and probably will in the future. The nice rain was completely worth the trouble. Thank you, Lord. See related ad for details. We will run your event notice the two issues prior to your event at no charge. Ancient memories of boot camp included his drill ser- geant, whom he had hated and respected, and the late night polishings for early morning inspection. The sergeant was gone now. Sitting on the bed to put on his shoes, he recalled that the soldier assigned the bunk above him back then had long ago been declared MIA.
The dark suit, unlike the mothballed uniform hanging on the back of the door, actually fit. He had tried to get his old uniform tailered so he could have worn it today, but he was now too thick in the waist, too thin in the chest and he was growing shorter. A company mechanic, nicknamed Shorty, had passed on years ago.
As he looped the necktie around, his memory felt the ghost of his dog tags. After one particular mission, he turned in three sets of his comrades tags to the base com- mand and filled out the mission report. You live it, then retell it in de- tail, and try your life to forget it.
He picked up the program, folded it once and put in his inside jacket pocket. Who cared about the speakers. This day wasnt theirs. The back few pages, though, listed local men and women who did matter. While looking at the name on the white cross in front of you, it is hard to re- call the national count. Realistically, he didnt know most of the names on the program, but did recognize the families. Some members of some of those families would be there today. His rich, black case in the closet would be left there.
He gingerly picked up the dried and cracked case from the dresser. The bugle had arrived a few months ago from the family of his company bugler, who had been buried this year.
Long ago, the man had gotten him inter- ested in playing, and had now left his instrument to him. For the past week he had tried to push out some of the dings, had replaced the mouthpiece with his own, and had buffed every inch of the bugle so that it gleamed. How many times had this bugle played this song? Why was he disjointedly recalling the lieutenant who liked hotdogs? The crowd was not large. Some were dressed sharply. Some were dressed the best they could.
The honor guard had obviously practiced its precision. No one whispered or otherwise showed disrespect during the roll call of the deceased. That roll call of gone military members was depressingly long. Yet, he had to push out the thought that, in this land of the free, the roll call of military members should have been far, far longer. Then, he stepped up so that everyone could prepare for what was coming next. Purposefully he took a step back. This was not about him or that he was playing; it was about the sound itself.
He put the mouthpiece to his lips, calmly filled his lungs with sweet morning air, and began. Taps floated over the crowd. The notes filled the cemetery. The sound honored, in a mournful sort of way, the men and women who were listening from above. Friends and laughter, but work all the while. The small park north of the Haakon County Courthouse parking lot received some more landscaping improvements, Saturday, May Volunteers put 2DJs & One* - I Engineer (CD) flagstone and plants.
The park will eventually be the home of the bronze bust of James Scotty Philip. Below are Keegan Burnett and Mary Burnett.

The Plant A Tree program was introduced nationwide in This program allows Modern Woomen members to give the com- munity a lasting gift, said Don Haynes, leader of the local Modern Woodmen chapter.
The name Modern Woodmen honors the pioneer woodmen who cleared the forests to build homes and secure futures for their fami- lies. Modern Woodmen offers finan- cial services to help clear away members financial burdens.
Plant- ing trees is an important way to create a secure future for families, communities and the environ- ment, said Haynes.
Through the plant a tree pro- gram and the help of its members, Modern Woodmen has planted thousands of trees across the Local Modern Woodmen members plant six trees United States. Chapters provide opportunities to connect through social activities and volunteer proj- ects. For more information, contact Haynes at dwhaynes gwtc.

Visit us at www. Have a safe weekend! South Dakota Farmers Union has hired four summer interns to organize and facilitate the family farm organizations summer youth education programs and summer camps. Im so pleased that these four talented young ladies have commit- ted to work with our Farmers Union youth this summer, said Bonnie Geyer, the organizations state education director. Theyll have the opportunity to travel across the state and pass along their knowledge to our young peo- ple and help them learn about agri- culture and cooperation while en- hancing their leadership and finan- cial literacy skills.
Lily, in her second year as an in- tern, attends Houghton College in Houghton, N. She has been active in the Farmers Union youth program as a camper, junior advisory council member, Farmers Union torch- bearer, scholarship recipient and a member of the National Youth Ad- visory Council. Smith, also in her second year, is a graduate of Huron High School and just completed her sophomore year at the University of South Dakota in Vermillion majoring in advertising and public relations.
Sterrett is in her first summer with Farmers Union. She attends the University of South Dakota, majoring in contemporary media and journalism. Nearly 2, South Dakota youth will participate in South Dakota Farmers Union youth camps this summer from every county in the state. Camps are held at the local, county, district and state levels. Local and county day camps for youth ages six to 13 will feature crafts, cooperative games and a time of learning about lead- ership, citizenship, agriculture, en- vironmental stewardship and other life skills.
Three day district camps are held at three different sites in South Dakota. These overnight camps feature many of the same components as day camps, but dive deeper as youth set up their own cooperatives and participate in tra- ditional camp favorites like camp- fires, canoeing, swimming and other activities. The camp is for youth ages and focuses on cooperative education and leadership training. The youth set up a cooperative store at the camp, a credit union, cooperative insurance company and other coop- erative businesses.
They experi- ence real life scenarios like putting their own real money in a credit union and writing a check to the co- operative store for snacks or drinks. Registration for many county and district camps and state camp is now open. Visit the education page at www. Courtesy photo The big news of the week is the rain received from Friday night until Monday. The weather station at Stabens had a total of 1.
How thankful we are for this bless- ing! Some folks got more some less. This Tuesday morning our gauge has another. This year there are 14 kids attending. Their program will be on Friday night, May 24, at p. Everyone is welcome. Local folks attended more grad- uations over the weekend. Kara Parsons also attended the gradua- tion. Donna's nephew's son, Nathan Patterson, was a grad- uate. Riggs High School in Pierre Sunday.
Danielle is the daughter of Pat's sister, Bev and Randy Wilson. Caitlyn's parents are Chad and Candy Jef- fries Dowling. Zane was also at the graduation of a friend in Newell over the weekend.
Our one area eighth grade grad- uate this year is Mark Stangle. Several attended the graduation ceremony in Philip Tuesday evening. There were four eighth graders at his school this year. Tim and Judy Elshere spent the weekend with their son, Scott and Tia Elshere, in Sioux Falls to be present for the program and kindergarten graduation for their grandson, Holden.
Saturday, they had a birthday party for his brother, Isaac, who was two years old. Several of Tia's family came from their home in Montevideo, Minn. Dan and Gayla Piroutek were in Michigan over the weekend.
Joining them for the festivities were Joe's parents and his brother, and Amy's sister, Erin and Tim Logan and their son, Daniel. Gayla reports that the weather was nice and that Michigan is very green. They continued on to Valentine, Neb. Faye Piroutek and daughter, Anna, enjoyed last week in Wash- ington, D. They had a good time seeing the sights and being with Danielle, who will be going to summer school.
Misti Berry and her grandpa, Virgil Smith, went fishing recently and brought home two very nice catfish. The Milesville School had their end of year picnic Wednesday at the school house. Many moms, dads and younger siblings enjoyed the day. After the picnic, Mark Stangle invited the kids over for an afternoon of fun at their house.
I know of one little boy who brought home a turtle. They were celebrating the baptism of Jaisa. Friday evening, Jennifer Stan- gle had some friends over to help celebrate her 20th birthday. Jim and Linda no longer have four teenagers, only three! Jim Stangle welcomed a new veterinary student, Cass, to his clinic for four weeks. Her twin daughters and son also sang and the whole evening was very enjoyable. They returned home Saturday.
Donnie and Bobette had plans to brand Mon- day, but the wet conditions post- poned that job. Welcome back to Milesville, Joan Hamill! Joan returned home Monday, the 13th, after spending the winter at her home in St. Paul, Minn. They celebrated the families' April and May birthdays. Recently, the club had the honor of winning first place in the youth division of the South Dakota wheat Bake and Take pro- gram. Saturday morning, Donna and Tina Staben were in Philip to help out at the garden club's plant share.
If you didn't have a plant to share, two tickets could be pur- chased for a dollar and two plants could be brought home. Many Milesville folks attended at least one performance of the lat- est Philip Drama Club's produc- tion, "Bubba's Revenge," last Thursday through Sunday. The musical and acting talent of these folks is outstanding!
It's so nice having our new neighbors. We're hearing on Sunday and Monday of the devastating torna- does that have ripped through Oklahoma. We pray for all the fam- ilies that have lost loved ones.
Milesville News by Janice Parsons Details were recently released about a pair of new grant opportu- nities funded by the Legisla- ture. The purpose of the grant is to provide funding for teachers to utilize technology in innovative ways, in order to en- hance student learning.
Ap- plications are being accepted until July 8. A second grant is available to public school districts. Applica- tions are being accepted until June S - Fax: 60S-SS? S S20 E. The hospitality area on second floor was transformed into a huge tea party setting with many tables with white tablecloths. The tea service from Somerset Courts ex- tensive collection of tea pots, tea cups and saucers were brought out for our use.
A variety of tea flavors were available, and we were served cucumber and radish sand- wiches, cookies, grapes, strawber- ries, salted peanuts and choco- lates. Guests received various col- ored corsages with ribbons and pearls and a big flower. There was a good turnout of residents with many daughters and daughters-in-law joining us.
Many photos were taken. On the way back to Som- erset Court, we stopped a couple garage sales. The weather was ideal. After the tea, Gwynn and Barbie Hansen came over to my apart- ment for a game of scrabble.
Thank you, girls. Thank you to my nephew, Leonard Meyer, Greenfield, Ind. Peo- ple have built a living area on top of a landfill, and have salvaged anything usable from the dump. They have even built musical in- struments out of oil cans and junked parts of things and it is wonderful that they made profes- sional sounding instruments. It was a touching email. Saturday, May 11,at Som- erset Court there was a lot of com- pany.
Irene Cox had her three lit- tle great-granddaughters and Anne Brink had relatives in for a birthday party. Happy birthday, Anne. Irene said that Gloria looked very nice. Hairstyles are in- cluded in the rent at the assisted living where Gloria resides. Up on third floor, Zona Hair- grave has a wonderful plant.
It is a hen and chicks and it is planted in a pottery vase which has portals for little plants to grow out of. She let me take her photo with her plant. Does a hen always have 13 chicks? Hansen had his photos with the concrete airplane and a well-writ- ten article about his work in con- crete at South Dakota School of Mines and Technology for the last 20 or so years.
He and his wife were looking for the black-backed woodpecker, because that is the bird famous for digging out and eating larva of the wood-boring beetles. You may borrow my story. Thank you to M. Hansen, who came for scrabble and brought a big heavy box of books I had been waiting for from old house in Philip.
My Gene Stratton-Porters and a couple encyclopedias from my volume set. Thank you to David K. Hansen, Ft. Pierre, who relates the whole procedure he went through to do a blacksmithing job, that he could have just said, No way! Too big of a job for my shop! But he kept adding ideas and equipment and accomplished a seemingly impossi- ble task. I had to admire his inge- nuity. David also mentioned that Arnis Knutson, Philip, had put a photo of the Rolla Palmers homestead Grindstone neighborhood stone blacksmith shop on Facebook.
Thank you, Arnis. This photo should be of interest to all of Rolla Palmers offspring. Thank you to my granddaugh- ter, Emily Hansen, Lincoln, Neb.
She said that her mom and sister, Sheridan Hansen, and children would soon be driving down to Lin- coln to visit her. Thank you to my daughter, Carol Vogan, for a big Mothers Day card and one of her childhood memory short stories. Richardson hurt his back and couldnt be with us for church May Jack Humke volunteered to play the piano and lead us in singing a few hymns.
Several Som- erset Court residents met as usual and had a time of fellowship and a prayer was offered for Rev. Thank you, Jack, for organizing a get together. My great-granddaughter, Gwen Morgan, phoned from Virginia with news that is just trying to burst out. Thank you, Gwen. My daughter, Vinnie, and hus- band Danny sent a charming Mothers Day card with birds and birdhouses cut out.
Monday, May 13, was an ideal day, warm and not windy. A local flower shop sent over two big rose bouquets to Somerset Court, one in various colors and one in shades of lavender. Thank you, we enjoy them. Sorry to report, Mildred Krae- mers family were to taking her to a concert for Mothers Day and she fell and broke her wrist. Monday, May 13,at Som- erset Court, we had the activity of ping pong poker. Amy and Sandi were there to pick up balls and keep score.
Mary Lou won one game and Vivian the other. My lab lady told me she is going to run a marathon Saturday. How wonderful. All proceeds from these marathons go for charities. Run- ners pay to run. Sandi announced that at the re- cent Somerset Court volunteer ap- preciation brunch, Amy Voyles was voted outstanding volunteer, as she has been working for us since Applause, congratula- tions, and many thanks, Amy! She received a plaque inscribed with our thanks.
Some clothing manufacturers could learn from those like Studio Works who stamp their name and size and fabric info on the inside of the back of the neck of garments.
This is much more comfortable for the wearers than the stiff fabric name and info tags used by some other manufacturers. They sang and we had de- votions and jokes and stories. They had a poem about The Flour Sack, which told of the many uses we had for the old white fabric of the 50 pound flour sack. It could be a bandage, a diaper, a dish towel, a curtain, ghost costume, or a parachute for a cat. We used the chapel area and that saves moving a lot of chairs.
The ladies had made flags for us with yarn cross stitch. Thank you. And thank you for the comfy neck pillows you brought for us last time. Mel SmithPhilip, who used to go to school with my kids, Hans and Vinnie.
I wondered if she used to teach school at Alfalfa Valley? May 15, we planted flowers in the big urns in the courtyard. Trees are in full bloom. It was lovely out there. See the new pho- tos in the resident photo book on the coffee table by the fireplace at Somerset Court.
Patricks Day. Wear purple for world peace was our theme for May There was a good turnout of purple wearers. I took some photos. Mildred Young and I had our photo taken just out- side her courtyard door. My apart- ment is directly above Mildreds. Then I went to visit Myrna Pokor- ney, whose apartment is next door to Mildreds. Thank you to Ravellette Publica- tions of Philip for your pleasant check. It cheered me. And there are always two kinds of soup. This evening, the dessert was huge scones.
Thursday after we had played bingo and having our treats, we had a little rain and hail about then. It shows a fully developed funnel cloud above the Cheyenne Mountain. Carol saw this funnel cloud, al- though it was maybe 10 miles east of there. It formed and then with- drew back up into the cloud bank above it. Carol also sent photos of her beautiful purple coneflowers and a couple shots of my old home in Philip, where we went over the weekend in mid-June for Scotty Philip Days.
Thank you for your letter and pho- tos, Carol. There was a pretty card that says, I love my garden where bees bumble, flowers bloom, and butterflies flutter all afternoon! It is so cheery to re- ceive a pretty letter. Thank you, Hazel. She also wanted me to thank my son, Hans P. Hansen for the greeting card that he had sent to her and Tommy Thompson.

The storm cov- ered a big area, leaving people with a lot of damage and big messes to clean up.
Some of the neighbors lost vehicles that were totaled out and there was lots of broken glass in vehicles, tractors and homes. And of couse the buildings took a beating. As for me, my north bedroom storm win- dow, screen and inside window ex- ploded and hail stones came in and hit the south wall inside the house, leaving glass all over every- thing.
My bed was covered with glass, some pieces were two inches and some pieces were so fine you could hardly see them. It was in the carpet and I dont know how many times I vacumed and went over it before I was able to get it all. I had to take all the bedding outdoors and shake it good, then brought it in and washed it all. Marvin and Vicki, who did not have any windows broken, came down and helped me. Vicki helped me clean up glass inside and out.
Marvin and Vicki found a piece of plywood and nailed it over the window to keep the weather out. The north side of the house, which has vinyl siding, has holes as big as soccer balls and the steel roof looks terrible with dents that re- mind you of the spots on a dalma- tion dog. Marvin had all his equipment in the shed, but one old tractor and it broke the signal lights out of it.
The shed and the roof and siding on their house received a lot of damage. But, some people who were not home, had windows bro- ken and the rain caused a lot of damage in their homes. So many were a lot worse off than we were. I noticed while driving around this week, some of the forage crops could make some hay and some may keep growing to make for some grazing.
Trevor Fitch came down to look at his millet that he has planted on section 16 and found that it was damaged severely as were all the crops on this place. We have received about an inch of rain for the rest of the week which came on different days.
Colby Fitch came down for four or five days this week and helped his grandparents, Marvin and Vicki, clean up branches, tree limbs and trash in and around their yard.
Little Aven Fitch also spent some time with his grandpa and grandma this week while the rest of his family went golfing. Friday, I attended the memorial service for Karen Bowen Ray- mond, as well as many of the neighbors from the Grindstone community.
It was a story of Karens life as she taught many children and was also an adminis- trator and principle in many of the schools in those areas. Several of the Native American folks showed their respect and friendship for all she had done for them by partici- pating in the service, bringing out her qualities in the helping of all the children and other staff at the schools on the reservations.
She was loved and will be missed by her family and the host of friends she had made over the years. Karens dad and mother, Marvin and Lois, were great neighbors of this community. Russell and Mary Pierce are here from their home in Yankton and are visiting family in Murdo. They had asked several of us to meet them for lunch in Philip. Kay Ainslie was un- able to attend as she was driving the Haakon County Prairie Trans- portation bus.
Old friends are one of lifes treasures. Though new friends are worth- while; But the ones who we have trav- eled through the years with Are the ones who bring forth a smile. New friends may soon fall away, For they have not weathered the years, Have not been sweet partners in prayer, As we shared our joys and fears.
Old friends know our strengths and weaknesses, Almost as God knows our lives Yet, their love is as sure as forever Like the sun, moon and the tides.

Steve Schaible and Rev. Nels Easterby officiated. He was the third of four children born to Myron and Mary Mincks on February 24,during a bliz- zard. The doctor was not able to make it in time, nevertheless, his parents named him after the doc- tor, Owen King, who also delivered Owen's firstborn son, Terry Owen. Owen was raised in the West- port area and graduated high school there.
He was a basketball star and their team went to state. He also boxed Golden Gloves and played baseball. On March 31,Owen mar- ried Arlene Brown, who preceded him in death in He made his living by farming near Westport. He ministered on reservations for sev- eral years, and then pastored in Sisseton at Dacotah Gospel Assem- bly. He was ordained as a minister with the Assemblies of God in At that time, he was asked to teach at Trinity Bible College, which he did for eight years, going out to the reservations on the weekends and during the summer.
Inhe was joined in mar- riage to Lynette Woodbeck and they continued to pastor at Sisse- ton where she had been living. Fol- lowing that, they were appointed as the district coordinators of Na- tive American Ministries, which they continued until During that time, they also pastored two outstations and taught at Central Indian Bible College.
Inthey moved to the White River area to help establish a new Native church. Owen was with the U. Missions of the Assemblies of God. Indue to poor health, the Mincks moved to Bella Vista to be closer to family. Owen was preceded in death by his parents; his brother, Francis; and his sisters, Jenny and Iona.
He was also preceded in death by his wife, Arlene, and his wife, Barbara, and a great-grandson, Ezra. He is survived by his wife, Lynette, five children, 24 grandchildren and 33 great-grandchildren. Owen's life was a influence 2DJs & One* - I Engineer (CD) so many people his family, friends, those he taught and even those who cared for him.
He was greatly loved by all who knew him. If he were alive, he would say, Don't be sad because I'm walking and free from pain in God's won- derful and exciting Heaven. He leaves word that He'll be looking for all of you when your time to join him comes. Please be ready for that final call, don't miss Heaven what- ever you do! Carlsen Funeral Home and Cre- matory of Aberdeen was entrusted with arrangements.

Dan Piroutek's sister, Kay's husband, Allen Turvey, had de- cided around Father's Day that he should maybe be seeing a doctor because he was not feeling up to par.
It took them about three weeks to make the appointments, have the tests performed, and get the diagnosis. On July 10,Allen was diagnosed with pancre- atic cancer. Allen lived 12 more days, passing on July 22, Kay lives in LeSueur, Minn.
Kay and Allen had each lost their first spouses earlier due to illnesses, and were happy to have found each other. They were busy grandparents to the joint family. Dan and Gayla Piroutek have made several trips to LeSueur over the past several weeks.
Dur- ing this time, their daughter, Amy Piroutek Hogue, and her two sons, Jacob and Eli, visited at Milesville, attended the funeral, and then Dan and Gayla babysat while Joe and Amy took care of some business in Sioux Falls. Also coming for the funeral was Erin Piroutek Logan.
She spent several days in Milesville, including a visit at the Jenna Finn home near Midland. Erin's husband, Tim, and son, Daniel, St. Louis, Mo. Susan Pat- ton Jones and her sister, Janet. Susan has her own veterinary practice near LeSueur with a new, well-designed building, and a siz- able staff. They got a great tour. Everyone involved is to be commended on the great job done.
Our pastor, Gary Wahl, and his wife, Dawn, recently returned from a trip to see their new grand- son. Josiah, son of Eric and Molly Wahl, was born on July He has a two-year-old sister, Meliah.
Grant and Sandra Parsons had their four grandchildren during the month of July. They had a great month together with two highlights a week in Pierre camping and fishing and a trip to Valley Fair in Minnesota. Toad" put on by the summer school theatre stu- dents at Black Hills State Univer- sity. It was very good. She joined her father-in-law, Fred Romkema, for supper that night and on Sat- urday she met her brother, Tom Delahoyde, and his friend, Janet Herring, for lunch before heading home.
She missed some of the family as some were out of town and others were playing in a very large golf tournament. Misty Berry had her horse fall while practicing barrel racing.
She is now recuperating from a con- cussion. We wish you a complete healing, Misty. Jade Berry participated in the 4-H rodeo in Ft. Pierre Sunday. Sandy Radway Rathbun, Or- lando, Fla. Several Philip couples, as well as Tanner's friend, Rylee Rich, joined them. Judith said they got rained on part of the time but it was lots of fun.

S S20 E. Go to scIoo n stc! The weather isnt quite sure what it wants to do, at the moment it is mostly overcast, with humidity in the air.
We got a bit of a shower during the night. This past week, some folks got over an inch of rain and others not a drop. Weve been getting showers off and on and are thankful we havent gotten that white stuff. Snow you ask? No, no, we are in the month of Au- gust. Some folks have had hail. Sounds from those hail stones beating on the roof and bouncing off the ground brings dread right along with it as you fear the dam- age and havoc it can cause.
With the different seasons, there are different challenges. So, take time to enjoy the good times of each season. The Sturgis Motorcycle Rally has officially begun. Interstate 90 is a busy, busy, highway with rid- ers on motorcycles, others hauling their motorcycles, and tourists in vehicles, motor homes, and campers, with truckers mixed in- between, plus some of us local folks.
And for those motorcyclists wanting out of the fast lane, to a more relaxing ride, Hwy. Jerry and I decided to head for Wall Drug, Sunday, just because. There were lots and lots and lots of motorcycles. My mind tends to be a bit strange, but it kind of made me think of a bunch of busy ants. It is just kind of fun to see. But, just between you and me, I wouldnt care to be in Stur- gis right now.
Sturgis rally time brings memories of my good friend, Lois Grimme. She and her husband, Larry, lived at Belvidere. Lois was one of those people I so enjoyed working with at Town. She always had a smile and a positive attitude. Her death was unexpected, she had seemed so healthy. I had lost a dear friend.
Working the same shift, she in the costume shop and me the saloon, a family friendly saloon where the strongest drink you can get is a sarsaparilla, the granddaddy of root beer. On the days we had the opening shift, we would busy ourselves with getting ready for the tourists, one of those duties was making popcorn. Once ready, it was time for some pop- corn and Lois with her coffee and me with my mountain dew, wed head for the broadwalk.
And look- ing out over the town with its buildings filled with history from days gone by, and sharing that moment in time with a good friend, I can honestly say, I am thankful for the good memories of those days. We would laugh and comment on all of those motorcy- cles heading west, past our little Town ofwith its buildings from the past. Good memories!
And, speaking of Town, as some of you know, Jan Cerney and I put together a book about the town. We are just thrilled and so thankful the books are selling well and have recently ordered another 1, books. It has been an amaz- ing journey! Its Tuesday morning and time to get at the news for this week. We had strong winds and rain during the night. Our congratulations to the Kadoka Areas Midland Elemen- tary being rated the best elemen- tary public school in the state, according to South Dakota De- partment of Education scores.
The teachers, parents and students are to be com- mended for their accomplish- ments. Good job! Speaking of teachers, Chrisy Zuccaro, lives on Tinian Island, which is north of Guam and teaches sixth grade math and sci- ence at Tinian. She is spending part of her summer at the home of her parents, Chuck and Eleanor Zuccaro, also helping out on the farm. Chuck and Eleanors grand- son, Christian, came from Denver, Colo. As many of you may remember, Christian, who is the son of their daughter, Paula, spent a number of sum- mers on the farm of his grandpar- ents.
Chrisy and Lucy Laffoon, a friend of Christians, recently en- joyed an airplane ride with Mar- sha Sumpter over the Badlands. Chrisy said it was awesome! An- other form of seeing land from the air has to do with a hot air bal- loon. Going for a bucket ride in one of those balloons was on Chrisy top list of things to do. Some time ago, she and her mom, Eleanor, rode in one of those bal- loons, which was said to have the largest bucket in the world, over Custer State Park.
Now just be- tween you and me, Im not sure I could handle a ride in a hot air balloon, but Chrisy reports it was an amazing ride. Ill take her word for it.
I havent had a chance to ask Eleanor her take on the whole ride, but knowing Eleanor, she would handle it plumb fine. Thanks for sharing, Chrisy, wish- ing you safe travels home and a great school year. The board of the Midland Community Library served the meal for the evening with folks seaming to enjoy the meal. It was tasty if I do say so myself! I had a nice visit with Jill Schofield Splitt, who along with her daughter, Josie, and her daughter were visiting family in the Midland area.
Our congratulations to Tayton Schofield who was recently crowned Days of 76 Princess. Tay- ton is 11 years old and is the daughter of Roger and Gayla Schofield. They ranch 25 miles west of Faith. Also congratulations to Wes and Nicki Nelson on their 25th wedding anniversary which would be today, August 6. They later sold the business and moved to the Denver, Colo. Heading towards that re- tirement age, they have moved back to Midland, where they bought the former home of the late Orland and Ora Keiffer.
When we purchased the house we now live in, it needed a lot of work. Keith and Linda did a fine job on that house that would become our home. Good to have you back, Keith and Linda.
Saturday, Jody Block and Barb Jones picked up their mom, Arline Petoske, at the Philip Nursing Home, bringing her back to Mid- land giving Arline a chance to see the home where she and her late husband, Clarence Petoske, had lived and raised their five chil- dren, before it goes on sale August For Arline and her family, there are a whole lot of memories that go with that home. That house on the hill is the perfect spot for a home, as it looks down over the town of Midland, with its sunrises and its sunsets.
Arline, Jody and Barb had lunch at the Jim and Barb Petoske home for a time of visiting and remembering before taking Arline back to Philip. Jennifer Jones and kids were also there. They enjoyed visiting over coffee and goodies be- fore heading home to Chamber- lain. It was great to see Chad Ferley in the tie for first place.
He had spectacular rides, including great horses to show off his skills, and so did the other first place winner. Don and Nancy Smith attended a rodeo at Sidney, Iowa, last Saturday night where Chad was in first place, having ridden at an earlier performance. He has recently moved up from eighth to sixth place in national standings. It was just 20 years after he stood on that stage as a two year old when his dad, Roy, won the roping contest there. The announcer said he was interviewed by the an- nouncer at the time.
He also was New Mexico state brand inspector when Shorty was on the South Dakota brand board and we at- tended many meetings and got ac- quainted with him, to the point he asked us to buy a piece of Black Hills jewelry for him to give his wife. It was fun to shop for that! The heifers have been A- I'd and will be sold as bred heifers, with the remainder going on feed.
The steers are doing well, and some are about ready to be sold as fat cattle, a month ahead of what was projected. So everyone was pleased with that project. Monday afternoon, it was on to- ward Brookings. It was fun to drive through South Dakota and eastern Nebraska and see all the great corn. It is apparent that farming corn and beans is what is keeping the very small towns alive with main activity and new con- struction being at the grain eleva- tors and the machinery sales places.
Shorty attended a meeting of the advisory board to the SD ani- mal diagnostic lab Tuesday and Maxine toured the beautiful new building at McCrory Gardens. The gardens have been expanded and are beautiful. It can be found on the Internet, but going in person is very special. Don and Nancy Smith made a hurried trip by plane to Alabama last week as a brother-in-law died of a heart attack.
He was only in his late forties. Frank and Norma Calhoon, Chilhowie, Mo. They visited Dave and Jean Calhoon the previous weekend on their way to Montana, and Scott Jones met them in town for a short visit.
Frank has always enjoyed staying at the hotel in Midland. Frank is the son of Nathan and Cleo Cal- hoon and a frequent visitor to South Dakota since he was a baby over 60 years ago. Now he has a chiropractic business and teaches physics at a college in Warrens- burg, Mo. It is not the college the president visited recently. Audrey Jones reports they havent done much this past week, but work. Gene had a softball game in Pierre Friday.
The Midland Museum board met on July 30,with all seven members present. President Kandus Woitte called the meeting to order. The minutes of the last meeting were read and approved. Linda Sinclair gave the treas- urers report. George Anderson moved to accept the treasurers re- port and Jim Root seconded the motion and it was approved.
We discussed the floor in the schoolhouse and what could be done to fix it. Gary Snook gave the museum an old operating table and an old wheelchair that be- longed to his grandmother, Sylvia Snook.
They put it in the east shed. We will be advertising in the paper for people to come and get their old machinery if they still want it. There is a window in the upstairs that needs to be fixed. Shorty will look into getting large sheeting to cover the displays over the winter. We will close the museum at the Sep- tember meeting. Mickey Woitte, Secretary Time to close my column for another week!
Spent a bit too much time pulling fire weed around my juniper bushes yester- day, so am running a bit short of time. I do dislike those fire weeds. Our traveling daughter, Charlene, is having a wonderful adventure in Columbia.
She spent three hours at the Fernando Botero art museum and thoroughly enjoyed the La Quinta Bolivar museum which was one of the former houses of Simon Bolivar, the liber- ator of Columbia. Saw the city of Medellin which is in the Andes Mountains. They visited the small town of Guatape, known for their sockets, which are beautifully col- ored tiles at the bottom of beauti- fully colored homes and businesses.
She reports they were unlike anything she had ever seen in her travels. They even got to meet the artist. Her travel days are coming to a close for this sum- mer as she flies into Minneapolis, Minn. Have a great week! For more information, contact Vince Bruce at or or Dustin Vollmer at All proceeds will go to help the family with medical expenses that insurance does not cover.
In recent months, there has been a common theme in Wash- ington. Government agencies have abused their power, imposed un- necessary regulations and wasted millions in taxpayer dollars. With a growing list of abuses by federal agencies, South Dakotans are rap- idly losing trust in their govern- ment. Here in the House, we decided it was time to act.
We de- bated and passed a handful of bills that limit the power of federal agencies and instead empower in- dividuals. Each year, federal agencies issue hundreds of regulations regulations which go into effect without ever receiving a vote or fair debate in Congress. Too often, major decisions are made by unelected, unac- countable bureaucrats who fail to understand how a regulation will impact families and businesses in South Dakota. Small business owners and fam- ilies are facing difficult decisions because of Obamacare and many are surprised to know the IRS is responsible for implementing over 50 different aspects of the Presi- dents health care law.
This agency is already in trouble with Congress, and the American peo- ple, for its inappropriate and ille- gal targeting of political groups. I find it troubling that this same agency would enforce the disas- trous health care law, one of the most expansive and expensive laws ever passed.
This bill prohibits the IRS from implementing any por- tion of Obamacare. Ive heard from many South Dakotans who believe the federal government is out of touch and stories of lavish and expensive employee conferences only further damage the governments credibil- ity. The purpose of the bill is simple.
It re- quires that federal agencies pub- licly post detailed information about conferences and also limits the amount agencies can spend on a single conference. I believe this bill is an important step in encour- aging transparency and accounta- bility. The increasing size 2DJs & One* - I Engineer (CD) role of bureaucracy is costly and further erodes the trust of the American people. This week was an impor- tant step in tipping the power back to the people and I was proud to vote for legislation that will re- store balance in the government and save taxpayer dollars.
Id like to hear your opinions on legisla- tion passed as part of Stop Gov- ernment Abuse Week, and would encourage you to contact one of my offices to share your thoughts and concerns. Working toward efficient and effective government I would appreciate your consideration in the upcoming election for the Haakon County Rural Director with West Central Electric Cooperative.

I think of water. I was born, and spent my early life, on a houseboat, along with my older sister and my parents.
I remember the unsteady, but also comforting, feeling of being on the water. When you're on a small boat, you feel and notice the weather more. I also remember going to the standpipe to fetch water. We regularly needed to fill up the water tanks on the boat, and that job belonged to me and my sister.
We always had to be careful with how much water we used. We washed in a small tin bath, and washed our hair in the sink.
We brushed our teeth with a mug of water. My mum washed all our clothes by hand and hung them out along the top of the boat in fine weather, but all over the inside of the boat on rainy days. A lingering memory of my childhood is the smell of damp clothes.
Our boat was fairly long, but extremely narrow. At the other end of the boat, there was a tiny bathroom, living space and kitchen area. When my sister and I wanted more space, we played beside the boat at the water's. We used to play outside in all weather.
Most of my early life we spent travelling along the canals of southern England. But when I was six, we came to stay in Oxford on a canal near the centre of the city, and my sister and I started formal education.
As we were by theirs! B It was strange at first to stay in the same place, but the pleasure of going to school helped a lot. C So there was a lot of hard work for my parents and my sister and me.

What does each food c. At the start of the autumn term, John Lambert, the head teacher at Rawmarsh Comprehensive School in Yorkshire, introduced healthier school meals that he says help the children to concentrate better.
He also reduced the lunch break from one hour to thirty minutes, and banned children from going out to local takeaways during the break. But two mothers, Mr5 Critchlow and Mrs Walker, believe that the new rules don't give pupils enough choice or enough time to enjoy their lunch.
So two weeks ago, they started passing burgers, fish and chips and fizzy drinks over the school fence. Soon, they were delivering up to 60 food orders l Mr Lambert has described the two mothers as unwise, and said they were undermining the school and their children's education. He claims there have been improvements in behaviour and learning in the afternoons since the new healthy eating regime was introduced.
After a meeting with Mr Lambert, the two mothers have agreed to stop their deliveries while they try to resolve the problem. Speaking before their meeting, Mrs Critchlow argued that the children have the right to choose their food.
