  K ADOKA P RESS The official newspaper of Jackson County, South Dakota $ 1.00 includes tax Volume 107Number 8September 5, 2013 Labor Day fun in the sun Ronda DennisNo was sitting for very long with all the water activities at the Belvidere Dam on Sunday and Monday of Labor Day weekend. Families gathered to ride the pontoon and jet ski, trytheir luck at fishing and visiting with friends. Future of the county libraries at the schools still unclear  After much discussion and publicinput, the future of the county li-raries at the Long Valley and Inte-ior schools is still unclear.With over 50 concern county resi-dents attending the special JacksonCounty Commissioners meeting onThursday, August 29 at the Long Val-ley School, no final decisions weremade regarding the libraries.“The reason we decided to hold thisspecial public meeting, was to gatherinformation and ideas from thecounty residents on how to proceedith the libraries that are located athe schools in Long Valley and Inte-rior,” said Commissioner Larryenke. “We’ve hit a crossroad herend not sure which direction weshould go.”Like several other counties acrosshe state, Jackson County is alsostruggling to have a balanced budgetnd looking at ways to cut costs.“As of now, the budget for 2014 isalanced, but in order to have a bal-nced budget it requires us to use oureserve fund balance and then thereould be no extra for next year,” ex-lained Denke.“Currently we have removed theequest from economic developmentn the amount of $5,000 and predatorontrol in the amount of $3,400, andur other cut to consider is the li-braries within the schools.”With county no longer providingemployees or funding the libraries, itwould reduce the budget by approxi-mately $10,000. Since the librariesare housed within the school, thecounty did not have any expense forfacility use or utilities.No one attending the meeting wasin favor of closing the libraries, butthe commissioners were looking foralternate was to fund the library.Ideas were to either turn the librariesover to the school or if the boosterclub or other organization would beinterested in taking care of them.When asked what other areas of the budget had been reduced, com-missioners responded stating they ascommissioners had cut their budgetitems. Only one commissioners is re-ceiving health insurance benefits,they no longer receive mileage andthey opted to not receive an increasein pay, so that hopefully they canraise the wages of the county employ-ees.The importance of having librariesthat are accessible to the studentswas the main concern of the those inattendance.“Closing our library is not what wewant to do, but the county is runningout of funds and we really do notknow what to do,” said CommissionerGlen Bennett, “we need your help inhow to move forward in the future.”Many questioned when it becameapparent that funding the librarieswas a problem. The commissionersreplied that it just came to the sur-face during the current budget meet-ings.“We have hundreds of miles of county roads to care for, provide pub-lic safety, along with several otherservices that the county provides,”said Denke, “with the restrictionsfrom the government on what can belevied, we just can not continue toprovide all the same services with theincrease in expenses.”In close of the meeting, it was de-cided to have Commissioners Denke,Larry Johnston and Ronnie Twissmeet with Kadoka Area School Boardmembers and superintendent, to dis-cuss options available to continue tohave libraries at the schools.“I believe that having a book inyour hands to read or look to at thepictures is important to children’s ed-ucation, but I’m just not sure if thecounty should be responsible for pro-viding the library at the schools,” saidTwiss. A date and time for the next meet-ing was not set, but will be open forconcerned public to attend.With a nice breeze coming off the waterand a long list of activities going on, theTown of Belvidere held a two-day celebra-tion over Labor Day weekend.However, it all started after many daysof labor from a crew of hard workers.Dead trees were removed, landscapingdone, gravel hauled in and many yards of cement was poured to make a new boatramp on the south side of the BelvidereDam just east of the pump house. Workwas completed by Charles Black Bear,Randy Peters and Jory Rodgers. JohnRodgers oversaw the entire project. The council members, Rudy Reimannand Wayne Hindman, and finance officerJo Rodgers helped plan all the events,and through their leadership and fore-sight, the event was better than ex-pected, said John Rodgers.Sunday morning activities didn't go asplanned as there was no ribbon cuttingand wind conditions did not allow BlackHills Balloons to launch. Early Mondaymorning two hot-air balloons went intoflight with John Rodgers and Randy Pe-ters in the rainbow colored balloon withpilot Steve Bauer. Taking flight in the sec-ond balloon, Old Style No. 10, was Caro-line Manke and Tracy Radway with pilotScott Nash. Although it appeared that the flightwas headed toward Philip, once theyreached altitude, the balloons took anortheast current toward Midland andlanded west of town at Clint Saucer-man's. Balloon chasers picked them up,held a champagne post-flight celebration.Each of the passengers received a flightcertificate and are now ranked an aero-static adventurer.Bauer gave a talk about balloon flightsdating back to 1780 in France up to pres-ent time. The reason for the champagneis because early day farmers were super-stitious of the balloons and come out withpitchforks. Balloon pilots then startedgiving the landowners a bottle of cham-pagne for lettingthe land on theproperty.There was plentyof delicious food forall to enjoy. JamesCarlson was incharge of smokingbrisket and porkloins prior to theevent and RandyPeters was themain chef on site.Peters deep-fatfried fish, corn onthe cob, potatoes,zucchini and onionrings with helpfrom Nikki Bonen-berger and DianaColler. In addition,the 100-plus peoplewho attended, joined in on thepotluck bringing avariety of sidedishes.Several peopletook advantage of the newly groomedarea and set uptheir motor homes,campers and tents,spending Sundaynight along the dam.Craig and Diana Coller's pontoon wasenjoyed by many on Sunday. Rides weregiven and several tried their luck atwater skiing, knee boarding and tubing.Mark and Tammy Carlson provided en-tertainment with their jet skis and paddleboat. Labor Day in Belvidere has been quietfor many years, but this year with all thefamily and friends getting together, wehad a great weekend, said John Rodgers. We are looking forward to a bigger andbetter celebration next year.

First andforemost, I’ve finally figured outhow to sleep comfortably in one of those awful hospital chairs. Youknow, the kind that has woodenarmrests so your arms go to sleepand tingle within minutes of usingthem. Some of them also havesuch strong springs that if youush them back into the recliningosition, they snap you right backupright unless the upper part of your body weighs over 200ounds. If you get one of those badones, you are flat out of luck un-less you tie it down with a cementlock or have learned how to sleepsitting up. If you are fortunateenough to get a weaker spring,then you may be in business.Here’s what you need to sleep ina semi-cooperative hospital chair,namely three pillows, a smallsheet, blanket or bedspread, and asweatshirt or towel. You first placethe chair where it has enoughspace to recline. Then you drapethe sheet or other covering overyour feet and legs and, after re-clining the chair, grab the pillows.Pick the thinnest pillow for behindyour head, and position the othertwo over the wooden armrests.Place them at an angle so the cor-ners meet over your lap, and restyour arms on them at the sameangle as the pillows are situated.Finally spread the sweatshirt ortowel over your chest and armsand cover completely if the room iscold. If it is warm, you might notneed it at all or the covering overyour feet. If you follow these sim-ple instructions, you are apt to bevery comfortable indeed and sleeplike a baby. Such, at least, hasbeen my experience this week.I’ve even felt rested in the morn-ings, and my dreams have beensweet.The one minor difficulty withall this splendor is that it has to bereplaced every time you get up togo to the bathroom or help withyour son’s care. I’m getting prettyefficient at getting settled back inby now, of course, so it doesn’t takevery long. At first it was a little te-dious, but now it’s just routine.Then we come to rocks. Thereare rock borders all around thehospital and, in fact, all over town.They must all come from the sameplace because the assortment of stones, pebbles etc. is alwaysfairly much alike. It’s about whatI’m used to from the ranch exceptall gathered together in bunches.I’ve had time to observe themclosely when taking breaks fromson Chance’s room and sitting ona wall or something sipping coffee.Must of the rocks are fairly hum-drum and not very exciting. A fewhave interesting colors, streaks, orembedded materials. What hasbeen catching my eye, though, arethe occasional small flat roundones that are grayish-brown withwhite flecks. I once started lookingfor a perfectly formed one of thosefor the lack of anything better todo, and I’ve been looking for theperfect specimen ever since. Ihaven’t yet found a completelyround one that is unchipped, butI’m bound to sooner or later, don’tyou imagine? I have found a heartshaped one that went into mypocket along with a nice oval.What I plan to do is let thesethree pebbles roll around with myknife, keys, and loose change therein my pocket until they get allsmooth and nice. This may take aconsiderable amount of time, of course, but it should happen even-tually. I know a little about polish-ing rocks since we had a tumblersome years ago in which you placerocks, grit, and water and then letthe thing roll slowly around formany weeks until the rocks arepolished. My pocket isn’t as activeas a tumbler, but given enoughtime the result should be thesame, I would think. I didn’t reallyknow what to do with those pol-ished rocks from long ago, come tothink of it, so the whole affair issomewhat an exercise in futility.That’s okay. It gives me somethingto think about and work towards.That is useful when tending some-one in the hospital. The wholebusiness also reminds me of God’sefforts to polish us up a bit. Heputs us through hard times occa-sionally to smooth off the roughedges and make us shine. I won-der if I’m shiny yet. Must be get-ting close.It looks possible that Chance’sstay may end shortly which is finesince we’ve already been hereabout two weeks. Heaven knowsthat’s long enough, but now I havea nice collection of rocks and knowhow to sleep comfortably in a hos-pital chair. That’s probably a goodthing, and getting Chance back tobetter health is even better. School Days Rising temperatures replacedthe roar of motorcycles and thesmell of State Fair funnel cakes asfamilies across the state began an-other school year. Back to schoolads in full swing, teachers prep-ping classrooms and lesson plans,and fall sports back on the news-casts mean students and parentsare adjusting to their new rou-tines.Football games, marching bandpractice, cross country meets, anddance competitions begin fillingup evenings calendars. Whilehomework assignments, tests, andgroup projects keep students run-ning from one thing to the next.College students wrapped upsummer jobs and internships theyused to make some much neededcash for tuition payments and latenight pizza. The well-stockedfridge and quiet roommates aregone, as is the free laundry servicemany enjoy while living at home.With their cars packed up, theseyoung adults headed back to cam-pus.The back to school season is bit-tersweet for many parents, someof whom watched their kids go off to school for the first time, otherssaw their last child off for theirsenior year of high school, andeven more are just watching theirkids grow up too quickly.In the hustle and bustle of thebeginning of this new school year,let us also pause to remember theimportant role that parents andteachers play in the education of our students. Teachers play a piv-otal role in shaping the future suc-cess of their students; and eachand every one of us have specialmemories of teachers who put inthe extra effort to help us succeedinside and outside of the class-room.We are fortunate in SouthDakota that our state offers stu-dents a high-quality education af-fording them opportunities bothinside and outside the classroom.The future of our state lies in thesuccess of our children; let’s striveto make this year the best schoolyear yet in South Dakota. Lookin’ Around | Syd Iwan From the U.S. Senate | Senator John Thune Embracing E-Learning Now that kids are back inschool, we’ve traded in baseballsand bug spray for calculators andhighlighters. Families acrossSouth Dakota are readjusting toearly mornings getting kids readyto catch the bus and eveningsspent working on homework at thetable. In the Noem household,we’re getting ready to move ouroldest daughter Kassidy back tocollege to start her sophomoreyear, while Kennedy and Bookertry to get back in the school rou-tine.Life in the classroom haschanged quite a bit since many of us were in school. Long division nolonger requires time spent withpencil to paper, but rather numbercrunching in a calculator. Al-though our students are stilltaught how to solve problems the“long way,” technology has made asubstantial impact on education.Elementary students now useiPads to learn cursive and memo-rize multiplication tables, and stu-dents in middle and high schoolcan now take exams and write pa-pers on laptops in the classroom.When I was in college, my fa-ther died unexpectedly in an acci-dent on our farm. I made thetough decision to leave college andreturn to our family farm to keepour operation up and running. Ialways intended to complete mycollege degree, but like so manyindividuals, life got in the way. Iwas raising three kids, runningbusinesses and spending my daysin the field. After years spent out-side the classroom, it was a con-versation with my sister thatchallenged me to return to schooland finish what I started.I enrolled at South DakotaState University, and because of the availability of online classes, Iwas able to complete my Bache-lor’s degree, even while runningfor Congress and serving my firstterm in Washington, D.C.I know firsthand that some-times life doesn’t allow you to sitin a classroom and take classesthe traditional way. This is why Irecently hosted an E-Learningroundtable in Sioux Falls withlocal universities to find out waysthe federal government can im-prove affordability and access tohigher education. A lot of the discussion focusedon a regulation issued by the De-partment of Education whichforces states to follow federal re-quirements when decidingwhether to grant an institution,including institutions that offeronline education programs, per-mission to operate within theirstate. I voted to repeal this bur-densome regulation last Congressand will continue to work to givestudents access to classes, regard-less of what state classes may beoffered.Education has changed drasti-cally since most members of Con-gress were in school, which is whyI formed the Congressional E-Learning Caucus with Rep. JaredPolis (D-CO). As Congress pre-pares to consider the reauthoriza-tion of the Higher Education Actthis Congress, I look forward tosharing the feedback I receivedfrom students and administratorsduring my E-Learning roundtablewith my colleagues.If you have taken an onlineclass or have an experience withdistance education that you wouldlike to share, I would encourageyou to send me an email throughmy website athttp://noem.house.gov.. From the U.S. House | Representative Kristi Noem Immigration Reform Also an ImportantLabor Issue Each year on Labor Day, wetake time to reflect on the produc-tivity of America’s workers andour responsibility as a nation tosupport their efforts.This year, as we gather to cele-brate, Congress has a timely op-portunity to create an evenstronger American workforce forgenerations to come. They can doso by fixing America’s broken im-migration system.The broad impacts that immi-gration reform would have for oureconomy are well documented. Ac-cording to the non-partisan Con-gressional Budget Office andSocial Security Office of the Chief  Actuary, the bipartisan Senate im-migration reform bill would boostour economy by 3.3 percent, re-duce the deficit by a projected$850 billion and add nearly $300billion to our Social Security sys-tem by the end of the decade.But immigration reform wouldalso address critical labor issues.Today’s broken system leaves mil-lions of workers in the shadows – a dangerous situation for theseworkers and their families – andprovides no clarity for U.S. em-ployers, the majority of whomwant to do the right thing. At atime when we should be providingrules that empower American pro-ductivity, today’s broken immigra-tion system only furthersuncertainty.This is especially true for agri-culture. Farmworkers drive an in-dustry that is directly related toone in 12 American jobs. They’rein the fields as crops are planted,cared for and harvested. They’rein packing houses and processingfacilities. They help get food tomarkets and stores that ends upon kitchen tables across the coun-try. About half of these workers areunauthorized, and many more areemployed under a temporaryworker program that is difficultfor farmers and farmworkers aliketo understand. In the years tocome, the resulting instability inour agricultural workforce threat-ens productivity on farms andranches, and impacts rural com-munities where agriculture is athriving part of their economies.The commonsense immigrationreform measure passed in June bythe U.S. Senate, with bipartisansupport, would provide a compre-hensive set of rules to ensure astable and adequate workforce foragriculture. It expands and re-forms the temporary worker pro-gram to allow a three-year visa foragricultural workers, while enact-ing a pathway to citizenship fortemporary workers who are com-mitted to continue working inagriculture. And it provides a fairopportunity to earn U.S. citizen-ship for those who are in our coun-try without authorization – aprocess that will require going tothe back of the line, settling taxesand paying fines for those whowant to earn citizenship.The result would be a modernsystem that makes sense. It wouldbring millions of farmworkers outof the shadows and give them afair chance to strive for the Amer-ican dream. It would help farmersand ranchers focus on growingmore and expanding their busi-ness. It would give agriculture thepeople power to keep driving eco-nomic growth and creating jobs.This Labor Day, I’m hopefulthat Congress can find a way tosolve this modern labor challengefacing our nation. We have a longhistory in America of supportingthose who work hard – and Con-gress has the chance to make evenmore progress by passing com-monsense immigration reform. U.S. Dept. of Ag  | Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack  Preparing OurStudents For College And Careers  August has come to a close, andthough temperatures are stillhigh, fall is almost here and stu-dents have already settled backinto their classrooms. This time of year always brings me back towhen I was in school. I always en- joyed school. In fact, through sev-enth grade, I was at the top of myclass. Of course, that wasn’t toodifficult – I was the only person inmy class!Much has changed since I at-tended that one-room countryschool. Back then, a gallon of gaswas 40 cents, a new house costaround $25,000 and fewer peoplewent to college – about 17 percentof people in the U.S. had at least abachelor’s degree. Now, that num-ber is around 28 percent. Along with the escalating num-ber of people seeking higher edu-cation, the increasinglycompetitive global economy re-quires today’s workforce to havegreater skill sets and more educa-tion. In order to succeed, our stu-dents need to leave high schoolready for a postsecondary experi-ence – at a university, a technicalinstitute or a shorter certificateprogram – and, ultimately, theworkforce.How well are we preparing ouryouth in South Dakota? Recentnews indicates we are doing prettywell. According to the state Depart-ment of Education, 74 percent of our students are proficient inmath and reading. Also, South Dakota’s ACTscores went up last year, and wecontinue to outperform the na-tional average – even though wehave one of the highest ACT par-ticipation rates in the nation. Wealso surpass the national averagesin each subject: English, reading,math and science.Still, there are areas where wecan improve. Although more of ourstudents take the ACT and attendcollege, we have a higher than av-erage college dropout rate. As onefactor which limits success, somestudents enter college needing re-medial help. To overcome thisproblem before college, the SouthDakota Department of Educationand Board of Regents are workingto increase college readiness by of-fering free remedial coursework.Students don’t have to retake awhole course, but instead canfocus on the specific components of courses where they need someextra help. These courses areavailable to high school seniors viathe South Dakota Virtual School.I am proud of the quality of ed-ucation we offer here in SouthDakota. Our students do well be-cause we have committed teachersand parents who take an activerole in their children’s education. As our world continues to change,we will continue to work towardeven better solutions to prepareour children for the future.Here’s to a great school year! Office of the Governor | Gov. Dennis Daugaard Your questions,Our answers Q: Is it ok to laminate aMedicare card to protect it? A: I am not aware of any recom-mendation against laminatingMedicare cards. The Social Secu-rity Administration does recom-mend against laminating SocialSecurity number cards althoughdoing so will not invalidate thecard. Do not routinely carry yourSocial Security card with you.Lost or damaged Medicarecards are easily replaced online atno charge. From the Social Secu-rity homepage at www.socialsecu-rity .gov , go to the “Numbers &Cards” tab and click on the “Re-lacement Medicare card” link. A replacement Medicare cardwill arrive by mail in about 30days at the address that Social Se-curity has on record for you. Donot use the online replacement re-quest if you recently changed yourmailing address and have not yetprovided the new address to SocialSecurity. In this case, contact So-cial Security to report your newaddress and request a replace-ment Medicare card at the sametime. Call the Social Security na-tional toll-free number at 1-800-772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778)from 7:00am – 7:00pm, businessdays, or your local office.Q: A friend has Medicare fromRailroad Retirement, not from So-cial Security. Is the coverage thesame? A: Yes. Medicare coverage is thesame for everyone entitled to it, nomatter how that coverage was ob-tained. Details about what is cov-ered by Medicare are on theMedicare website,www.medicare.gov.Railroad employment is notcovered by Social Security. Legis-lation enacted in 1934, 1935, and1937 established a separate retire-ment system, now administeredby the Railroad Retirement Board.The Medicare program covers rail-road workers just like workerscovered under Social Security. Although railroad employmentis part of a separate retirementsystem from Social Security, thetwo systems coordinate benefitswhen a person has employmentthrough both.Did you know?

Social Security  | Howard Kossover, Public Affairs Specialist  Beware of the Pitfallsof Public Wi-Fi Ever notice how many peoplewalk down the street completelyengrossed in their smartphonesand tablets? I fully expect to seeone of them to walk into a lightpost one day. Although it's great having ac-cess to email, social networkingand online shopping anywhere,anytime, such convenience comeswith a certain amount of risk, ac-cording to Jennifer Fischer, Headof Americas Payment System Se-curity, Visa Inc. Unless you'rehyper-vigilant about using securenetworks and hack-proof pass-words, someone sitting at the nexttable – or halfway around theworld – could be watching yourevery move online and stealingvaluable personal and financial in-formation right off your device, says Fischer. There are two primary poten-tial dangers with Wi-Fi, notesFischer. The first is using an un-secured network – as many publichotspots are. With a little know-how and the right tools, cyber-criminals could easily eavesdropon your online activity. The second hazard is phonywireless networks that imperson-ate legitimate Wi-Fi hot spots. Youthink you're logged onto a trustednetwork, but instead a cybercrim-inal has hijacked your session andcan see all the private informationyou access or input. When using public Wi-Fi net-works, always follow these safetyprecautions:Change default settings on yourlaptop, smartphone or tablet to re-quire that you must manually se-lect a particular Wi-Fi network,rather than automatically accept-ing the strongest available signal. Avoid any network connectionsyour device lists as unsecured (look for the lock icon). But if youmust log on to a public network,avoid websites that require log-insand passwords – e.g., bank ac-counts or email. Ask for the exact name of theestablishment's hot spot address – don't be fooled by lookalikes.Only send personal data via Wi-Fi to encrypted websites (thosewhose addresses begin with https and display a lock icon). Tobe safe, you may want to avoidconducting financial transactionson public Wi-Fi altogether; in-stead, use your secure home net-work.Consider using a third-partyvirtual private network (VPN)product to encrypt your Internettraffic.Regularly update virus andspyware protection software,make sure firewalls are on, andload operating system updates assoon as they become available,whether for your computer orsmartphone.Turn off Wi-Fi on your devicewhen it's not in use.Never leave a computer unat-tended while signed-in and alwayssign out completely at the end of asession.Keep an eye out for shouldersurfers who watch as you type inyour password.Finally, change passwords regu-larly and use different ones foreach website you visit. Use a mix-ture of letters, numbers and sym-bols and avoid common words andphrases. Security experts recom-mend using at least 12 charactersinstead of the minimum eightcharacters commonly required.Cybercrime is a booming busi-ness. According to the 2012 Nor-ton Cybercrime Report, its globalprice tag topped $388 billion lastyear, more than the global blackmarket in marijuana, cocaine andheroin combined. It impacts indi-viduals, small and large busi-nesses and governments alike.Being able to access the Inter-net anywhere anytime can be agreat convenience and time-saver.Just make sure you know whatprecautions to take when usingpublic Wi-Fi networks.

A two-day com-munity fling was held at the newboat ramp on the Belvidere Damby the old pump house. This in-cluded potluck dinners on bothSunday and Monday and balloonand boat rides and a fish fry. Ac-cording to Mike Perault, probablyfifty people attended both daysand got in a lot of good visiting andfishing. Balloon rides were given,but windy conditions kept that toa minimum.

She tookadvantage of the long weekend tocome on Saturday, stay Sunday,and leave again on Monday.Carolyn Manke was one of those who got a balloon ride. Otherpassengers on her trip includedJohn Rodgers, Randy Peters, anda Mrs. Radway from theMilesville/Philip area. They liftedoff from the Belvidere Dam,floated over the cemetery and thencontinued on an hour farthernortheast where they landed in afield in the Midland area close toHighway 14, the railroad, and theBad River. It was a nice quiet rideas balloon rides generally are, andCarolyn said the country was thegreenest she’s seen it in quite awhile. She wasn’t quite sure whatranches they passed over sincethere weren’t any signs up there.Carolyn said she’s also been goingto a lot of farmers markets thissummer. She takes baked goods tosell, and her son, Buddy, takes pro-duce from his extensive garden in-cluding such things as tomatoes,cucumbers, and peppers. He has atrailer and a cooler to help withthis marketing of his produce. Hailput a little crimp in Buddy’s pro-duction for a while, but things arenow bouncing back. The plants inhis greenhouses weren’t affectedvery much at all, but the outdoorones were. At present, Carolyngoes to the markets in Midland onFriday, Murdo on Tuesday, andWhite River on Wednesday.

With her various jobs at thepost office, store, and bar, Jo had abusy weekend but also said it wasreally fun. Many of the campersleft the dam in the afternoon andmigrated to the bar so that placewas fairly busy all evening as well.John Rodgers, of course, got a bal-loon ride with Jo’s mom, and sonJory was in attendance at every-thing too. On Tuesday, it was backto work at the post office in Murdofor Jo and back to school inKadoka for Jory. Aaron, Michelle and TyrelMansfield spent the holiday inRapid City visiting with Michelle’sfolks and Aaron’s sister, Alison,and her husband and son, Mikeand Thomas.

They make hotsalsa for Eric and medium forPam. They were aided by Eric’sdad, Wib, and Pam’s daughter, SydBeth. The group all enjoyed somebeer-can chicken which was pre-pared on the grill. This involvesemptying a beer can of half its con-tents, and then putting it uprightinto the body cavity of a chickenwith some spices and baking forabout an hour and a half. Eric saidit was very moist, really good, andenjoyed by all. Other than that,Eric said his dog got a lesson re-cently in the importance of waitingfor a vehicle to come to a completestop before disembarking. Thehound decided to jump out of thepickup when it was still goingabout ten miles an hour whichwasn’t a very good idea althoughhe wasn’t really hurt any. Eric fig-ures, though, that he’s probablylearned his lesson.Norma Headlee took advantageof the long weekend to finish hercanning and freezing for the year.Since she is now out of canning jars and freezer space, she has noplans to do a lot more in that direc-tion. It was a banner year for gar-dens thanks to recent rainsalthough not to recent hail storms.There will be plenty of beans,tomatoes, beets, and other produceto last quite some time. Bill gearedup the rotary mower and leveledpart of the garden after Normawas through picking. He also cutup quite a few zucchini and fedthem to the bucket calves whichadore this vegetable. BuddyManke told Headlees about theprocess of feeding zucchini to cat-tle and it seems to work out reallywell. Even the family dog got intothe act and started hauling squashfrom the garden to the calves. Healso brought some cucumbers andother produce that weren’t as pop-ular with the cattle but were ap-parently fun to carry aroundanyway. Not many family mem-bers came to visit Bill and Normathis weekend since they are allscheduled to come shortly to helptheir folks celebrate their 40thwedding anniversary later thismonth.Rick and Ronda Dennis at-tended the two-day celebraton inBelvidere for Labor Day.

For themost part I thought our kids han-dled it pretty well.Defensively we were more of abend don’t break defense againstthe Coyotes. They are big andphysical and you just kind of haveto grab on and go. They controlledthe football more than we did withshorter gains and longer drives,but fortunately for us we won theturn over battle and we were ableto make some adjustments in thesecond half that helped keep theCoyotes from scoring for most of the remainder of the game.This week the Kougars do nothave a game as it is our bye week.Next week we return to action aswe travel to Wall to take on theEagles in another tough confer-ence match up.

The book inspired her and after three years of planning, Eichinger is walking across America. Startingher journey in Ocean Shores, WA, she put her hand in the water, turned around and started walking, with plansto end in Savannah, GA. The trip will total 3,800 miles and after walking1,600 miles, and five pairs of shoes later,she arrived in Kadoka on August 28. Pushing a cart that she designed, it contains all the necessity she needs for survival including a solar panel to charge her cell phone. Volunteering for several years with Beads of Hope, her walk is to raise funds for this organization. Beads of Hope was founded in Arizona and gives beads to childrenwho have cancer. Each bead is a different color and each color represents something different in the child’s journeyto fight cancer. Beads of Hope are in over 150 hospitals across the nation and Eichinger will visit 20 of them onher walk. Eichinger shares her walk with others on her blog walk4courage.com or on Facebook walk4courage.
