Cody Trainor scores 1,000 ... Cody is the third player in Faith
High School history to score 1,000 points or more. The other two
players were Dusty Petz 1996, and Luke Enos 2007. All three of these
players not only scored a 1000 points, but they were all great team-
mates, great leaders, and all were part of very successful teams.
Cody scored his first varsity point against New Underwood and he
scored his 1000th against New Underwood also. Pictured left to

so they will be able to fend off dis-
eases. There are many other fac-
tors, specifically nutrition that
play a role in the success or fail-
ure of a vaccination program. Dr.
Sides has extensive beef industry
nutrition experience, compiling
20 years with organizations such
as Intervet/ Hoechst-Russell Vet,
Cargill Animal Nutrition and
Moorman Manufacturing Com-
pany. Before putting his nutri-
tional expertise to work for Pfizer
and beef producers, Sides spent
two years as a livestock extension
specialist with Texas A&M Uni-
versity, located in Fort Stockton,
Texas. Additionally, Sides was a
research scientist with Utah
State University. Based in Lima,
Peru, he worked in the Andes
Mountains above 14,000-feet ele-
vation, studying the reproductive
and nutritional characteristics of
South American ruminants. He
also taught at La Molina Agricul-
tural University in Lima. Dr.
Sides currently lives in Sterling,
CO.
To round out the program,
SDSU Extension, the City of
Faith, and area producers would
like to invite you to attend the
36th Annual Ranchers Forum
and 2nd Annual Pen of 3 Bull
Showcase at Faith Livestock
Commission on February 7th
from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The
theme for the day is Health, Nu-
trition and the Economics that tie
them together.
Adele Harty, SDSU Extension
Cow/Calf Field Specialist will
begin the morning with a presen-
tation on alternative feeds
sources and the considerations
that need to be made when in-
cluding them in a feeding pro-
gram. Adele has worked for
SDSU Extension since 2005, with
a majority of her focus being in
ruminant nutrition, specifically
cow/calf nutrition. She is from
the Philip area.
Dr. Gary Sides, Nutritionist
with Pfizer Animal Health will
then give a presentation on the
relationship between nutrition
and immunology. Its not as sim-
ple as giving calves a vaccination
Jack Davis, SDSU Extension Eco-
nomics Field Specialist will tie it
all together by talking about how
the decisions producers make af-
fect their bottom line.
The other main event during
the day is the Pen of 3 Bull Show-
case. This will take place in the
sale ring from 12:30-2:30 with
participants having an opportu-
nity to preview bulls from area
producers. This is a non-competi-
tive show, just a chance for pro-
ducers and current or potential
customers to get together before
bull sale season hits full swing. If
you are interested in showing
your bulls in the pen of 3 contact
Ty Dieters 748-2404.
There will be a trade show set
up as well as door prize drawings
throughout the day.

strongly encouraged. To preregis-
ter, call the City of Faith Office at

Initiated during the 1996-97
school year, the SDHSAA Aca-
demic Achievement Team Award
program is designed to recognize
varsity athletic teams and fine
arts groups for their academic ex-
cellence. The South Dakota High
School Activities Association be-
lieves that high school students
learn in two distinct ways: inside
the classroom and outside the
classroom (on the stage and/or
athletic field). This academic pro-
gram creates a positive environ-
ment for school teams to have its
members excel in the classroom.
This program is also meant to mo-
tivate students toward academic
excellence and to promote aca-
demic encouragement from team-
mates.
All varsity athletic teams and
fine arts groups that participate
in Association-sponsored activi-
ties are eligible for this recogni-
tion program. The Academic
Team Award program provides
high school students with the op-
portunity to prove they can be
overwhelmingly successful in
both academics as well as in ath-
letic and fine arts activities.
All varsity athletic teams and
fine arts groups that achieve a
combined grade point average of
3.0 or higher are eligible to re-
ceive an SDHSAA Academic
Achievement Team Award.
The Faith High School girls
volleyball team was among the
schools recognized.

Obituary
Funeral services for Frankie
Reeves, age 97, of Shakopee, MN
and formerly of Mobridge were
held Saturday, January 19, 2013
at Kesling Funeral Home in Mo-
bridge. Burial was in the Timber
Lake Cemetery. Frankie passed
away Wednesday, January 9,
2013 in Shakopee.
Frankie was born to Frank and
Grace (Duncan) Rickels on De-
cember 9, 1915 in Terry County,
TX at the Brownfield Ranch.
Frankie's father was ranch fore-
man of the Brownfield Ranch.
The ranch was large, boasting of
fifty-three sections where they
raised cattle and horses. Frankie
attended college at Texas Tech at
Lubbock majoring in clothing and
design. Frankie was an excep-
tional seamstress sewing much of
her own clothing. She was noted
for her unique design and fabric
in her western shirts that she
made for her husband, Arthur
and her two boys Dean and Buzz.
Frankie was very creative. She
knitted afghans for all of her
grandchildren. She always
seemed to be in the middle of
some kind of creative project.
After college, she worked for
Rural Rehabilitation in 1934 and
1935. Arthur worked for the
Brownfield Ranch as a foreman
and wrangler of one of the divi-
sions. This is where the legacy
began. Frankie and Arthur were
married at Lamesa, TX on August
3, 1935. When a severe drought
hit Texas, Frankie & Arthur
packed up and moved their family
to Colorado. By then, they had
two boys, Dean and Gene (Buzz).
They lived near Trinchera and
Trinidad for the next six years.
In 1949, Frankie once again
packed up her family and moved
to the Dupree and Eagle Butte,
SD area. Over the years she had
moved 28 times, with the major-
ity moves being in South Dakota.
In 1960, Arthur went to work for
the South Dakota Stockgrowers
as a Brand Inspector, his first job
was in Sioux Falls, SD. While liv-
ing in Sioux Falls, Frankie be-
came the secretary for Sioux
Valley Hospital on the post oper-
ative floor. She worked there
until they were transferred to
Corsica, SD. Not one to stay idle,
Frankie went to work as a recep-
tionist and assistant to an op-
tometrist, Dr. Stekely, in Platte,
SD. She worked there for over
eight years. The family then
moved to Winner, SD. After sev-
eral years there, they moved to
Bison, then Mobridge. When
Frankie's health got to where she
couldn't be alone, she went to live
with her grandson, D'Aun Reeves,
his wife Sharon and their family.
She loved her new home at
Shakopee, MN, where she became
part of their family and family ac-
tivities.
During all Frankie and
Arthur's moves, their horses went
with them. Buzz tells of unload-
ing 45 head of mares off the train
at Midland and trailing them 75
miles north to Dupree, when they
came to South Dakota in 1949.
Frankie and Arthur became
renowned South Dakota Quarter
Horse Breeders. Their breeding
stock boasted of the famous pedi-
grees of Tom Baker, Bartender,
Bar Nothing Springer, Harmon
King and FerTidy. They were
awarded the 50 year AQHA
Legacy award in 1998. The old
adage, "Beside every successful
man, stands a remarkable
woman," describes Frankie to the
letter. Through all of the moving,
the ups and downs of life, Frankie
never faltered. She was a deter-
mined, resilient lady. her family
was the most important thing to
her and she tried to keep in touch
in some way with all of them.
Frankie is survived by one son,
Gene "Buzz" (Faye) Reeves,
grandchildren: D'Aun (Sharon)
Reeves, Shakopee, MN, Kevin
Reeves, Chamberlain, SD, JoBeth
(Justin) Swires Cody WY, Kip
Reeves, Houston, TX, Melissa
(Jason) Wientjes, Delta, CO, Jim
(Jana) Reeves, Midland, SD,
Bobby (Paul) Palczewski, Ludlow,
SD, Mary (Wade) Mitzel, Belle
Fourche, SD, Tom (Carmin)
Reeves, Athens, TX, 25 great
grandchildren, and 4 great great
grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by
her husband, Arthur, one son,
Dean, and her parents, Frank
and Grace Rickels.

Carv Thompson received this let-
ter, along with a check, as Chair-
man of the Faith New School
Fund Raising Committee and
thought it might be of interest to
others.
Dear Carv,
Thank you all for the Decem-
bre newsletter. It brings back
memories of my boyhood. I lived
on a farm south of Edson with my
folks Ingwald and Anna Olson
and brothers and sisters until I
was 5. Then, in Augsut 1937 we
moved to Faith and my brother
Enoch and I began high school as
freshmen.
At that time, the drug store
was the Saul and Thompson Drug
Store if I am remembering cor-
rectly. My father died the very
next month after our move.
Robert Saul was the mortician
and the service was by Rev. Tor-
bert (?) in the Methodist Church.
Mr. Saul even made the simple
pine coffin for my father. He
charged, I think the amount was
$65, for his services. In the follow-
ing weeks he had me do the rak-
ing and burning of the leaves in
his lawn. He left it up to me what
my charge should be and I came
up with the figure of 17 1/2 cents
an hour. I figured that something
between 15 and 25 would be
right.
In 2010, my wife and I and two
sisters came to Faith for the Cen-
tennial. This August my wife and
I and two grandchildren stopped
for the day, visited with Ted Ims-
land.
Congratulations to all of you
on the new Faith High School
building.
Sincerely,
Norman Olson
Plymouth, MN

Agriculture Secretary Tom Vil-
sack today announced that over
$323 million will be paid to 41
states and Puerto Rico in two dis-
tributions to support local schools

Act.
"These payments are part of
the Department of Agriculture's
long-standing commitment to
rural communities, schools and
American youth," said Vilsack.
"Our century-long support of
America's public schools and
roads is one of many ways in
which the Forest Service, as a
good neighbor and partner, con-
tributes to rural communities be-
coming self-sustaining and
prosperous."
The state of South Dakota will

Legislative Update
Rep. Betty Olson
Gov. Daugaard has appointed
Larry D. Zimmerman to serve as
the first Secretary of Veterans Af-
fairs. Zimmerman was confirmed
by the Senate on January 15,
2013 and will service over 70,000
Veterans in SD. He served 29
years in the South Dakota Na-
tional Guard before retiring in
January. Zimmerman completed
a tour in Afghanistan (OEF) as
the Operations SGM for the nine
Northern provinces in that coun-
try and has received many
awards and decorations during
his career including a Bronze
Star, Meritorious Service Medal,
Army Good Conduct Medal, and
Global War on Terrorism Service
Medal.
Friday was the eighth day of
the 2013 legislative session and
the pace is starting to pick up.
228 bills have been filed so far,
118 in the House and 111 in the
Senate, and several more bills are
being circulated. Wednesday,
January 23 is the last day for un-
limited bill introduction and Jan-
uary 28 is the deadline for a
legislator to file their final three
individual bills and joint resolu-
tions.
So far all the bills weve dealt
with in the House were agency
and summer study committee
bills. The governors Red Tape Re-
view brought us a lot of cleanup
bills that have repealed thou-
sands of antiquated and unneces-
sary words from state statutes.
Sen. Maher, Rep. Schrempp,
and I served on the Oil and Gas
Development Committee this
summer and four of the bills that
came out of that committee
passed the House this week:
*The oil and gas development
bill that I carried, HB 1001 to re-
quire mineral developers to give
notice to surface owners before
entering the land, came before
the Agriculture and Natural Re-
sources Committee Tuesday.
DENR brought a friendly amend-
ment to clarify the mineral devel-
opment as surface disturbing
activities which include well site
construction, road building, grad-
ing, excavation, demolition, and
related activities. Both the
amendment and the bill passed
unanimously and it was put on
the consent calendar. HB 1001
passed the House without a sin-
gle dissenting vote on Thursday
and has been sent on to Senate
Ag.
*HB 1003 to provide for medi-
ation between mineral developers
and surface owners in certain dis-
putes over surface depredation
and to provide for mediation of
mineral fee disputes was passed
after being Hoghoused in Ag
Committee on Thursday.
*HB 1004 to provide for the
award of treble damages in cer-
tain surface depredation cases is
scheduled to come before Ag on
Tuesday.
*HB 1006 to revise certain pro-
visions relating to the termina-
tion of certain mineral interests
also passed out of Ag Committee
Tuesday and the House on Thurs-
day and will go on to Senate Ag.
There may be some unintended
consequences to this bill, so there
may be some amendments com-
ing.
Im the prime sponsor of an-
other bill that came about be-
cause of testimony sheep
producers in this district gave be-
fore the Oil and Gas Committee.
HB 1083 will reestablish sheep
rustling as a class four felony.
Statute 22-30A-17 says the theft
of cattle, horses, mules, buffalo, or
captive non-domestic elk is
rustling. Evidently sheep were in-
cluded in that statute at one time
and HB 1083 will merely put the
theft of sheep and goats back into
the law. HB 1083 has been sent to
the House Agriculture and Natu-
ral Resources Committee.
On a personal note, Rep. Lance
Carson from Mitchell missed the
first week of session because he
was in the hospital with heart
problems. He showed up this
Tuesday wearing a battery pack
that keeps his heart beating and
he is number 3 on the A negative
transplant list to get a heart.
Please keep my friend Lance in
your prayers.
Ill have more to report next
week after we begin taking up
legislators bills. If you want to
get in touch with me, you can call
me at the House Chamber num-
ber 773-3851. Leave a phone
number and Ill call you back. The
fax number is 773-6806. If you
send a fax, address it to Rep.
Betty Olson. You can also email

Who says at age 81 its too late
to publish your first book? Dont
tell Ellen Simon, because she did
just that! She started 2013 with
a bang publishing her book enti-
tled, Simply Simon: Poems on
Cowboys, Kinfolk, and Life from
Mamas View. It is filled with a
great selection of her lifework of
poetry she has written in her
unique rhyming style.
I first heard Simon recite one
of her signature poems and fit-
tingly the first one in her book, A
Cowboys Knife at a Henderson
Community Days event and dis-
covered her entertaining wit and
wisdom that brought tears of
laughter. With the help and en-
couragement of her niece, Brenda
Hadenfeldt, and her husband who
both work as editors in Boulder,
Colorado, Simon was able to self-
publish her work.
It was something I always
wanted to do but it seemed to be
one of those foolish things that
would never happen, said
Simon. She credits her niece for
organizing, editing, titling and se-
lecting which poems should go
into the book. They printed 150
books and Simon is selling them
mainly by word of mouth for $15
each.
Simon has called Henderson her
home for the past 18 years when
she moved here after her husband
died to be near her daughter Barb
Reetz. Previously she and her
husband had lived in the western
part of Nebraska and South
Dakota where he worked as a
cowboy on ranches. The first
chapter of her collection is enti-
tled Home on the Range and re-
flects life on the ranch.
She started writing poems
when she was in high school and
has never really stopped writing.
It was while she was writing a so-
cial column for a weekly newspa-
per in South Dakota that her
poetry writing skills were discov-
ered. One week when she was
going to be gone and didnt have
any current material for an arti-
cle, she instead submitted a fic-
tional Christmas poem about
what she thought her neighbors
might be doing. I guess it was
my first mistake, said Simon.
From then on, everybody began
asking her to write poems for
birthdays, anniversaries, retire-
ments and all sorts of life events.
If you are interested in pur-
chasing one of Simons books, you
can email her at
ejmdsimon@mainstaycomm.net.

With colder temperatures
often come runny noses, sore
throats and unfortunately, the
flu. Families across South Dakota
who are trying to get back into a
normal routine following the hol-
idays may not have taken the
time to ensure that kids and par-
ents alike are vaccinated for the
flu this season.
This week, South Dakota was
moved into the widespread flu
classification by the U.S. Center
for Disease Control and Preven-
tion (CDC), leading hospitals and
businesses to take extra precau-
tions. In total, eleven South
Dakotans have died from the flu
and the state has reported almost
600 cases of flu so far this season.
Its time to take the flu seri-
ously. I encourage all South
Dakotans to not only get vacci-
nated, but to stay home from
work or school if you have symp-
toms, such as a cough or fever.
The typical incubation period for
the flu is an average of two days
and adults can be infectious for a
week, starting with the day be-
fore symptoms began. Children
can be contagious for even longer.
Flu vaccines protect individu-
als from the three flu strains pre-
dicted to be most popular that
season. While the vaccine is still
the best way to prevent the flu,
antiviral drugs can also be a
strong line of defense, as well as
common sense health habits, such
as covering a cough and consis-
tent hand-washing. South Dakota
has the highest vaccination rate
in the country with over half of
our population receiving the vac-
cine during the 2011-2012 flu sea-
son! In fact, South Dakota
received the Adult Immunization
Coverage Award from the CDC in
2012.
I encourage South Dakotans to
look at information provided by
the South Dakota Department of
Health or contact a local health
care provider if you have any ad-
ditional questions or concerns re-
garding the flu vaccine.

Wraylee Brown spent Satur-
day with her grandparents,
Tucker and Bev Hudson while
her folks, Bill and Teri, went to
Pierre to watch Winston in the jr.
varsity wrestling with Sturgis
Scoopers. Winston won all his
matches. Good way to celebrate
his 14th birthday.
Thursday, Harold and I were
in Faith for groceries and pre-
scriptions. We ate lunch at the
Branding Iron where we visited
with Larry Brown, Hope Vig and
Merle Vig. Merle has recently
spent time in the Rapid City hos-
pital for his heart. He tells us he
will be going back for more sur-
gery soon. Take care Merle.
Thursday night supper guests
at my house were Allen Water-
land, Lacey Wondercheck and
Bub Thompson. Robert and Quirt
Wondercheck were attending
Quirts wrestling practice at
Union Center with Chad and
Canyon King so did not attend.
We send get well wishes to Jim
Eichinger, husband of Pastor
Connie, from the Marcus and
Faith Churches. He is in the
Rapid City hospital with Staph
infection in his new knee replace-
ment.
Friday, I was in Rapid City
with Lacey Wondercheck for her
baby doctor appointment. Quirt
Wondercheck spent the day with
Grandpa Harold.
Marcus Church appreciates
all the donations and help mak-
ing our Winter Extravaganza a
big success. It was held at Union
Center on Saturday. Some Hills
area folks I saw there were Vern
and Rosalie Simons, Gladys Ed-
wards, and Andy Wicks. I may
have forgotten some, sorry if I
missed your name.
Saturday, Harold and I were in
Spearfish for grandson, Daniel
Schillings basketball game at
11:30 A.M. After the game we at-
tended another grandson, Timo-
thy Schillings fifth birthday
party. We left there so we could
make it to the Marcus Church
Winter Extravaganza held at the
Central Meade County Commu-
nity Center in Union Center.
Jim and Vonnie O'Dea,
Tucker, Bev and Tina Hudson,
John and Verneen Frei attended
the play in Milesville Sunday af-
ternoon. Val Hlavka, Linda
Collins, Betty Newsum, Lacey
Wondercheck and LaVonne
Hansen attended the Milesville
play Saturday night. They say
Doc Stangle is as good an actor as
he is a vet and thats darn good!
Lacey, Robert and Quirt Won-
dercheck and Allen Waterland
were in Philip Monday. They vis-
ited Irvin Thompson at room 110
in the nursing home. Bub Thomp-
son visited Irvin on Friday when
he went down for a chiropractor
appointment. They all reported
he was doing well. Bub said he
had been ready to come home
with him!
Wednesday, Jim and Vonnie
O'Dea went to Philip to meet
Jim's sister and husband, Rosella
and Tom O'Bryan, Bagley, MN.
They had come to attend friend,
Cliff Ramseys funeral. Later,
they met several other couples
and went out for supper before re-
turning home.
Friday, O'Deas went to Sturgis
to watch grandson Michael De-
ichert play basketball with the
Spearfish Spartans. They also got
to visit with daughter Susan,
granddaughter Mary, and her
friend Kade.
This morning I was using the
internet to look up recipes for
things I could make in a class-
room without an oven. I want
some of my young Talented and
Gifted students (TAG) to measure
and actually make something. I
typed in free recipes for children.
I scrolled down the list of possibil-
ities to find EIGHT, yes, 8,
recipes for making Meth! Oh, my
stars and garters! I think well
stick with instant pudding! I re-
ally wanted to look at one of the
Meth recipes just cause I dont
know what goes in it but I figured
someone would come check my
computer and arrest me. What
pops up on the Internet can be
downright scary. I remember
when the toothpaste ad about
sex appeal was a little risqu.
Boy, not any more. Billy bar the
door..you name it, its on TV,
the Internet and video games. To
paraphrase a woman I know,
You can buy Meth, marijuana, or
oxycodone in many small towns
but you cant buy socks or under-
wear. Out of curiosity, I typed in
Homemade bombs and came up
with 7, 510,000 results. Yep, I
think were gonna stop all the vi-
olence if we take away peoples
guns. What all will we have to
have under government control to
stop mass killings? Gas, ammo-
nia, fertilizer, acetone. pool sani-
tizer just to name a few. To stop
mass killings we need some
morals, a belief in God and a com-
munity and government that en-
force some morals instead of
allowing anything and everything
in and on the media. Im sorry,
but are your rights to filth any
more important than my rights to
goodness and morality? Where do
we draw the line?
ter at 5:30 pm. The tumbling
team will perform at half time.
It is already time for the an-
nual Stock Show and Rodeo in
Rapid City starting this weekend.
We are hoping for good weather
because of the travel back and
forth to Rapid City.
Jodi Shaw enjoyed displaying
her crafts at the Made in South

November
Once again, we had a variety of
fall weather last week. Tempera-
tures were mostly in the 40s, with
a few 50s thrown in. We had a lit-
tle rain Saturday evening and
Sunday morning, but not a lot.
Anything is welcome! It is sup-
posed to stay about the same this
week, until the weekend, then
down to the 20s and 30s.
President Obama will be lead-
ing our nation for another 4 years
following November 6ths elec-
tion. Mitt Romney carried South
Dakota, but President Obama
carried the nation, receiving 303
electoral votes to Romneys 206.
Romney received 57.9% of the
votes in South Dakota to Obamas
39.9%. In the state election,
Amendment M (provisions relat-
ing to corporations) was defeated
statewide; Amendment N (travel
reimbursements for legislators)
remains the same; Amendment O
(distribution of cement plant
trust fund) passed; and Amend-
ment P (balanced budget) also
passed by a wide margin. Initi-
ated Measure 15 (to increase
state general sales and use tax to
fund education and Medicare)
went down to defeat, 56.72% to
43.28%. Referred Law 14 (Large
Project DevelopmentFund) was
also defeated, and voters didnt
like Referred Law 16 (teacher
merit bonuses) either.
We had some pretty nice
weather the first week, until the
weekend then we got down in the
20s and 30s. Friday was a foggy
day, and windy, so it felt much
colder than 30. Saturday was a
cold, windy, snowy day. Id say we
received around 4 or more of the
white stuff. It wasnt a very good
day for the opening of deer hunt-
ing season!
The Farmers State Bank is
sponsoring a Food Drive from No-
vember 26th through December
10th. The bank will be accepting
all non-perishable items in the
front lobby of the Bank. All items
will be donated to the Faith Com-
munity Action Team.
The Faith City Council ap-
proved the City paying for the
wine and cheese for the Festival
of Trees Open House and Auciton
on Dec. 3rd. Groups, businesses,
individuals, whoever can decorate
a tree or wreath to display. These
will be auctioned off on the 3rd
and the proceeds will go to a local
organization or maybe several.
Cole Elshere qualified for his-
first WNFR. Cole Elshere joined
the PRCA in 2010 and it didnt
take him long to qualify for his
first trip to the Wrangler Na-
tional Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas,
earning almost $66,000, placing
him in the top 15 in the world in
saddle bronc. A potluck supper
and send-off was held for Cole on
Nov 30th.

December
December came in Saturday
with a beautiful day, temps
around 50 and Sunday we
reached 60. We had some strong
wind move through early Monday
morning bringing some showers
with it.
David Ruth and Drew Vance
received Superior ratings at the
State Oral Inter contest in Yank-
ton.
The Longhorns beat Takini in
their season opener on December
7th and Kadoka the following
Saturday.
The Longhorns P.A.L.S. pre-
sented FHS Athletic Director
Doug Schauer with a check for
$3,000.
Lady Longhorn Tearnee Nel-
son reaceived an award on Satur-
day, 8th, for scoring her 1000th
point in the game with Tiospaye
Topa.
The First Annual Festival of
Trees was held on December 3,
2012.The trees and wreaths were
auctioned off that evening. The
top two organizations selected to
receive the money from the auc-
tion were Faith Senior Center
and Community Action Team in
the amount of $453.75 apiece.
The Faith City Council ap-
proved an electricity rates in-
crease at their first December
meeting. The city office received
information from Misouri River
Basin for an electric rate in-
crease. They suggested a 2.7% av-
erage increase which is enough to
keep the citys Capital Outlay
revenue up.
In his first appearance at the
National Finals Rodeo, Cole
Elshere finished 4th in the aver-
age .
Winter finally arrived last
week. The ground was white Fri-
day morning, the 8th, when we
woke. Id guess around 4. We got
more Saturday night, probably
another 3 or more.
The Longhorns had two more
wins when they hosted the Bison
Cardinals on Thursday, Dec.
13th. The Lady Horns had four
wins: Tiospaye Topa on the 6th,
Kadoka on the 8th, New Under-
wood on 11th, and Hettinger, the
14th.
The tellers at Farmers State
Bank presented CAT President
Janice Selby with the donated
items for their food pantry on the
17th.
The grade school boys basket-
ball team finished their season
Saturday, Dec. 15th by winning
their tournament.
Hope everyone had a Merry
Christmas. The weather cooper-
ated at least, except for it getting
darned cold over the weekend and
continuing yet. Those cold tem-
peratures made it pretty tough to
get vehicles started. We had
about an inch of snow on Sunday.

Faith News By Loretta Passolt
We had some gorgeous
weather the end of last week,
more like fall than winter, reach-
ing the mid 40s to low 50s. But
the weekend cooled off, dropping
to the single digits, and wind
chills in the minuses. We woke to
a little snow Sunday morning and
again Monday morning.
Dave and Eldora Fischbach
spent several days at their house
in Rapid City last week. They
both had appointments to take
care of.
Received an email from Marie
DeKnikker: It was an awesome
80th birthday celebration, which
started in June when Albert and
Marie DeKnikker celebrated
their 60th wedding anniversary
and combined 80th birthdays. Al-
berts birthday was in July and
Maries Jan. 19th! Enjoying the
many birthday cards and letters
that arrived from family and
friends, a visit from neighbor
Jeanie Elliott and phone calls
from SD and Alaska, one of which
was from Maries neighbor, Larry
Frank, who is in Alaska helping
celebrate his grandsons first
birthday! Over 30 Facebook mes-
sages came in from family,
friends and former students span-
ning from California, Costa Rica
to New Hampshire. All were so
enjoyed! Several made her smile
and feel very humble.
Yea 49ers!! What an exciting
game Saturday night. The Niners
were down 17 points in the second
quarter and came back to beat the
Falcons by 4 points to go to the
Super Bowl. It was a nail biter to
the end. I hope they have the
same luck in the Super Bowl, ex-
cept for being behind to begin
with. It will be a much better
Super Bowl than with the Pack-
ers! Thats my opinion!
The girls Little Moreau Con-
ference Tournament was held at
Lemmon last week. The girls de-
feated Harding County in the
first round Thursday night but
had some tough luck Friday night
against Lemmon. Their loss there
had them playing McIntosh for
3rd place which they won by
three points. The girls will be
playng in a double-header here
with Newell this Friday night be-
ginning with the girls at 3:00, fol-
lowed by the boys at 4:30. They
will be hosting Takini next Thurs-
day night, the 31st.
The boys tournament will be
next week, starting Thursday,
31st, and continuing Friday and
Saturday. The boys played
Dupree this past Tuesday night,
22nd, and Im sure it was a tough
one. Dupree is very strong again
this year.
The jr, high boys will be host-
ing McIntosh this Thursday night
at 5:30. They will be traveling to
Union Center to play those boys
next Tuesday, 29th, at 5:30.
The girls will be going to Philip
that night, too, for games starting
at 6:00.
The Black Hills Stock Show
starts this weekend and I would
imagine there will be quite a few
from our area taking in at least
part of it. Harold Delbridge is one
of those to be honored at the
Western Pioneers Breakfast next
Friday, Feb. 1st. Im sure many of
his friends and family will be at-
tending the breakfast. Congratu-
lations Harold!

Greetings from Pierre, we have
just finished our second week of
the 88th Legislative Session.I am
proud of the fact that we serve as
citizen lawmakers and take great
pride in our accessibility to all of
you as constituents in our dis-
trict.This is my seventh session
and the start of my fourth and
final term as your Senator for
District 28. Over the next two
years I will be serving on the Sen-
ate Education Committee, the
Senate Commerce Committee
and I will be the chairman of the
Senate Tax Committee. I will also
serve as a Major Whip to the Re-
publican Caucus.
This past week the Senate con-
firmed the appointment of Larry
D. Zimmerman to Secretary of
Veterans Affairs.Secretary Zim-
merman will service over 70,000
Veterans in South Dakota. As a
veteran himself, he served 29
years in the South Dakota Na-
tional Guard, where included in
his service, he completed a tour of
duty in Afghanistan (OEF) as the
Operations SGM for the nine
Northern provinces in that coun-
try. He has received many awards
and decorations during his career
including a Bronze Star, Merito-
rious Service Medal, Army Good
Conduct Medal, and Global War
on Terrorism Service Medal be-
fore retiring in January of 2013.
Secretary Zimmerman will be
very responsive to our veterans
needs as they come home and
reintegrate into our state, be-
cause he has been in the same po-
sition, and he will help take care
of their needs.
Many bills are in the drafting
process and many ideas are start-
ing to float though the capitol,
some have merit while many oth-
ers will never see the light of day.
Bill filing has been slow but this
is due to the huge turnover we
have seen in the legislative body.
Current Legislation
Public Safety Improvement
Act Senate Bill 70 has passed
the State Affairs Committee 8 0
vote and will be heard on the Sen-
ate Floor this next week.
This Bill is an Act to hold of-
fenders more accountable for
their actions, improve public
safety, and create the capacity
needed for the supervision of of-
fenders with the community
We have a duty to give people
the opportunity to help folks stay
or become productive members of
society.
1 out of 4 inmates in SD are
in prison for a parole violation
and 80% of our prison inmates
were convicted of non-violent
crimes.
This will save taxpayers
$224million that would have been
spent on building two new prisons
to meet the growing number of
prisoners in South Dakota
The goal is to bend the cost
curve or slow down the dramatic
cost increase in the prison sys-
tem.
Special Education funding
Bill Senate Bill 15 will be
heard in Senate Education:
Makes changes to the crite-
ria for a school to be eligible, and
for school districts to apply for
funding from ECP and then seeks
to maintain integrity of this fund
for extraordinary cost instead of
becoming an excess cost fund.
Seeks to clarify the process
for the setting of levies and main-
tenance of the state and local
funding for the formula and seeks
a new maximum levy and local ef-

fort levy for the special education
fund.
Higher Education Bills
Senate Bills 3, 4, and 5. This
past week, we also addressed
three higher education bills in
committee. Just as we are trying
to spend smarter in corrections,
Senate Bills 3, 4, and 5 are part of
a package to help us do so in
higher education. This package of
bills will report how people are
performing on licensing and cer-
tification exams, it will help us
determine job placements for
graduates of post-secondary edu-
cation institutions in South
Dakota, and it will establish the
Public Purpose and Goals of post-
secondary education.This pack-
age of education legislation will
help provide guidance for our
higher institutions of learning by
measuring outcomes and adapt-
ing to the needs of our students in
education as we prepare them for
the job market.
Senate Bill 3 - requires the re-
porting of the outcomes of certain
licensure and certification exams.
Senate Bill 4 is an act to re-
quire the Department of Labor
and Regulation to determine cer-
tain job placements for graduates
of all public postsecondary educa-
tion institutions in the State of
South Dakota.
I have a few issues with this
bill only because the government
will now be tracking our students
from the time they graduate until
whenever they see fit. The De-
partment of Labor will collect the
information from the unemploy-
ment insurance forms that are
submitted by every employer in
the state.Then this information
will be sent back to the Universi-
ties and they will then cross ref-
erence this data with their data.
This will allow big brother to see
what you are making, what your
work is, and how does this work
relate to the degree you received,
along with a whole host of other
data.
email us at
faithind@faithsd.com
Senate Bill 5 is an act to es-
tablish the public purpose and
goals of postsecondary education
and to provide funding of postsec-
ondary education. This bill also
creates the Council on Higher Ed-
ucation Policy Goals, Perform-
ance, and Accountability.
Reigning in Government
SB 40 was an act to require
certain receipts of delivery to
grain elevators be kept and to es-
tablish certain penalties for over-
weight vehicles and trailers.
Each grain elevator shall
make and maintain for at least
one year, a receipt for each deliv-
ery, that shall contain the follow-
ing information:
Date and time of delivery,
truck weight gross and net, li-
cense plate number or other iden-
tifying number of the vehicle
including the trailer, number of
axles, and the names of the owner
and operator. This bill was sent
to the 41st day killing the bill.
SB 50 was an Act to authorize
the Department of Revenue to
provide certain lists to other state
agencies.
This bill would have allowed
the Department of Revenue to
share lists of taxpayers, licensees,
or applicants, with other state
government agencies if the head
of the other state government
agency requests the information.
Any list provided by this law
could have been used to the ex-
tent necessary to carry out the of-
ficial duties of the requesting
state agency. This bill was sent to
the 41st day killing the bill.

Dale Hendrickson
Dale Hendrickson was born
March 9, 1933, in Buffalo County,
Neb., but moved with his family
to the Riverton, Wyo., area when
he was eight.
After graduating from high
school in 1950, he worked on a
Wyoming ranch until 1953, when
he went into the Army, serving
two years in Germany.
After his military service, Dale
received his doctor of veterinary
medicine degree from Colorado
State University in Fort Collins
in 1962 and went to work for the
state of Wyoming and a private
practice in Casper, Wy. In 1964,
he joined Norris Vet Clinic in
Rapid City and in 1969 started
his own veterinary clinic. In
1979, he opened the Animal
Clinic in Rapid City. He retired
after 40 years of service on Janu-
ary 1, 2003. As his old friend,
Lyndell Petersen said, He was
one of the few large animal veteri-
narians in the area who was will-
ing to go any place almost any
time to serve his clients.
Dale helped found the Black
Hills Roping Club and is a past

Marvin Maude
Marvin Maude grew up on a
ranch near Scenic as the oldest of
four children of Walter and Gen
Maude. He was active in 4-H
while growing up. Marvin
stepped in as the 4-H leader for
the Rangers 4-H Club at the age
of 17 to prevent the club from
closing down. It began a lifetime
of volunteer work that revolved
around helping kids improve
themselves.
In 1968, Marvin maried Mae
Scism. They raised three daugh-
ters on the ranch near Hermosa,
S.D. Marvin has contributed
thousands of volunteer hours to 4-
H programs in Pennington and
Custer counties. He and Mae
hosted livestock and horse judg-
ing schools for more than 15
years. Together they served as
leaders of the club. Marvin re-
tired as a 4-H leader after serving
for 42 years.
His volunteerism continues
with the Western Junior Live-
stock Show. Marvin has seved as
a director for the Western Junior
Livestock Show for more than
three decades and he conintues as
a directo today. Marvin also
served as president for the organ-
ization.
Marvin has worked with the
Black Hills Stock Show both as a
volunteer and as a contract em-
ployee. He was instumental in
helping establish the Youth Day
with the Black Hills Stock Show
and assisted with putting to-
gether the livestock juding con-
test up through last year. He can
also be found running the Bobcat
loader helping take down panels
and install tie-stalls to make the
transition from the horse week-
end activities to the beef cattle
shows.
When not busy with ranching,
Marvin contracts goats for goat
tying at 4-H, high school, and Lit-
tle Britches rodeos. He is also a
local inspector for the South
Dakota Brand Broad and keeps
busy during fall shipping.

the Western South Dakota
Buckaroos. He has also sup-
ported the Rapid City Kennel
Club and its major dog show,
along with volunteer work with 4-
H and FFA and the Western Jun-
ior Livestock Show in Rapid City.
Dale lives on a small ranch
near Caputa with his wife
Alice. They have three grown
children, Shelly and Mark Mid-
dleton, Rob and Jody Hendrick-
son who have two girls-Ollie and
Scout, and Roy and Christie Hen-
drickson who have two children,
Seth and Ari.
These days you can probably

Shop talking over the old days.
Harold Delbridge
Harold Dean Delbridge was
born and raised in the Howes
area. He married Karen Smith on
January 16, 1966, and they went
to work for the Bar VO ranch at
Quinn. In the fall of 1967,
Karens father needed help on his
ranch so they moved there to help
him. After her father passed
away in 1968, her brothers took
over the operation of the ranch
and Harold and Karen moved to
his grandfather Kellogs place
south of Union Center, where
they ranched for the next eight
years.
Harold left the ranch in 1976 to
attend Bible College in Cleve-
land, Tenn. He studied there
until 1979. At that time they
moved to Coal Springs and began
pastoring a church there. This
was Harolds first pastorate and
they were there until 1985 when
they moved from Coal Springs to
the Prairie Bible Community
Church where he pastored for 23
years. Three years ago he started
the Stoneville Country Church
where he is still pastoring.
Harold has also pastored the Elm
Springs Community Church
since 1987.
Harold started rodeo announc-
ing and auctioneering in 1983.
Dave Lensegrav encouraged him
to go to auctioneer school at Bis-
marck, N.D., where Truman Kon-
sile had the River Basin Auction
School, an auctioneering and
rodeo announcing college. Harold
and Les Lensegrav went to that
school. When they came back
they started the Open Meadow
Auction Service which they oper-
ated for 13 years. In 1984, the
Faith Stock Show contracted
Harold to announce their rodeo.
That was the rodeo that Truman
Konsile had announced for years,
and he said, Isnt that life, you
train somebody and they take
your job. Harold announced
Faith Stock Show for 24 years.
His favorite part of announcing
rodeos was encouraging the
young people in the sport. In the
year 2000, Harold and Karen had
the opportunity to go to the Na-
tional Finals Rodeo and had the
pleasure of watching the final
performance. In the saddle bronc
event there were four young cow-
boys that Harold had watched
grow up. That was a very satisfy-
ing experience for him. Harold
said, The greatest fun I had was
young peoples rodeos. Encourag-
ing the young cowboys and cow-
girls.
Harold and Karen have lived at
Red Owl for the past 18 years.
Since 1979, Harold has had a full
time ministry. In his spare time
he day works for ranchers in the
area. He says this has been a bet-
ter ministry than the pulpit. It
has afforded him the opportunity
to minister at weddings and fu-
nerals. Being a minister in the
rodeo announcing field, watching
the cowboys and cowgirls grow
up, has led to many weddings.
In reminiscing, Harold tells of
a wedding he was to perform.
When he arrived to perform the
wedding, the bride had forgotten
to bring the marriage license.
When Harold asked her what she
planned to do about that, she told
him that they would be at the
rodeo next week. They could go
ahead with the wedding today
and then they would bring the
marriage license and their wit-
nesses and get it signed at the
rodeo, one week later. Things like
that only happen in cowboy coun-
try.
One of the most challenging
points in Harolds life was while
he was pastoring at Coal Springs.
He went there in June, and in Au-
gust performed his first wedding.
Two years later he had to bury
that couples 18 month-old-

daughter. He said, It lets you
know the power of God, how you
get through some of those deals.
Harold is an active member in
several organizations in the area.
The Catalyst Club in Rapid City,
South Dakota Stock Growers,
South Dakota Farm Bureau, Fel-
lowship of Christian Cowboys,
and Central Meade County Com-
munity Center Board.
Harold had a funny story to tell
on himself. He was co-announcer
at the South Dakota Rodeo Finals
in Sioux Falls. His job was to plug
the sponsors while horseback in
the arena. A bareback rider had
just completed his ride, so Harold
rode in to announce the sponsor of
the bareback riding and the bronc
came alongside Harolds horse
and started bucking. In trying to
pull his horse up, hang on to the
microphone, and juggle a handful
of papers, things got away from
him. Papers all over the arena
floor. The audience loved it and
have probably never forgot it, and
the other announcer had a big
time with it. But, like Harold said,
at least he didnt fall off.
Having retired from his rodeo
announcing career, Harold looks
back on a couple highlights of that
career. One was when the Wall
Regional High School Rodeo Club
gave him a belt buckle when he
retired after announcing their
rodeo for 23 years. Another was
when the Faith Stock Show also
gave him a buckle after 24 years
of announcing their rodeo. Harold
said, It really lets you know how
much people appreciate your
work.
Harold and Karen have four
children, two boys and two girls,
and 12 grandchildren. Arlen,
Black Hawk, Chad, Cheyenne,
Wyo., Amanda, Anchorage,
Alaska; and daughter, Candace,
Thunder Butte.
In looking to the future, Harold
said that in his ministry he wants
to prepare people for the life
ahead. By that, he means he
wants them to come to know the
power of God and the relationship
they can have with Him.
When we look back over the
years at Harolds reputation, it
show us that he has given above
and beyond of himself, assisting
spiritually and physically, a large
number of families in our end of
the state. I got the feeling from
just visiting with Harold, that to
be ministering to and working
with the children and grandchil-
dren of those parents he minis-
tered to and worked with years
ago, gives him a real feeling of
thankfulness and satisfaction. In
all fairness to Harold, I must tell
you that in this short presentation
it is not possible for me to paint a
complete picture of his accom-
plishments. But for just a normal
looking cowboy, he has sure made
an impression in our communi-
ties.
The Pioneer Breakfast will be

Northwest Area Schools joins
districts across the state to thank
school board members for their
leadership and service to our area
school districts and communities
during School Board Recognition
Week, Jan. 14 - 18.
This week is a good opportu-
nity to recognize our school board
for their dedication to our chil-
dren and our communities, said
Cris Owens, Director of North-
west Area Schools.
More than 850 South
Dakotans are members of a local
school board. The board members
who serve their districts are re-
sponsible for setting the vision
and goals for the district. They
work to provide a quality educa-
tion for K-12 students and over-
see the annual budgets. School
boards also hire quality educa-
tors, sets district goals, adopt
policies and evaluate progress
while keeping the interests of all
students first.
As elected leaders, school
board members serve an impor-
tant role. They are the link be-
tween the school and
community, said Cris Owens.
During School Board Recogni-
tion Week, please take time to
thank your local school board
members, and the Northwest
Area Schools Board Members for
being dedicated to the education
of our children.
The men and women serving
on the Northwest Area Schools
Boards are; Kim Farries Agar-
Blunt-Onida, Dan Beckman-
