Pool’s open!


he Lennox Pool open last Friday—just in time for this week’s hot weather. Kids of all ages were enjoying the pool on Monday and not one complained about it being too cold. Swimming lessons have begun. The first session was pushed back one week and began on Monday. The second session will begin on schedule, July 9 to July 20. The third session will be from July 23 to August 3. Anyone who has purchased a pass can receive lessons for $20 per child; without a pass the cost is $40 per child. Pool hours are 1-5 p.m. open swim; 6-7 p.m. family swim; and 7-8:30 p.m. open swim. Water aerobics are also on the schedule this year, Monday through Thursday, 5:15 to 6 p.m. The cost for the class is $2, with or without a pass.

City considers establishing urban and rural services district On Thursday, June 28 at 7 p.m. the Planning Commission will hold a public hearing on the creation of an urban and rural services district. Planning Commission Chairman Rich Schriever explained that there are two aspects to establishing a district. One, property owners currently within City limits who have property that does not receive services such as water, sewer, etc. would be taxed at the township rate instead of the city rate. The township rate is lower than the city rate. Secondly, it would allow property owners outside of the city limits to more easily

Eclectic variety at Worthing’s Nifty Thrifty Flea market to be featured Saturday There’s a new business in Worthing. Jackie and Brian Medema decided to take their love of the community and Jackie’s love of “junk and garage sale shopping” and open a new business—Nifty Thrifty on Main. The business is located on Worthing Main Street in the beautiful building owned by Don Macintosh. The historical

building is a perfect backdrop for the eclectic array of items featured at Nifty Thrifty. There are new, vintage, and antique items, furniture, books, pictures, knick-knacks, dishes, and much more. There are even farm fresh eggs and homemade jellies for sale. Jackie hopes to add Hutterite chickens and vegetables this summer. ■ NIFTY THRIFTY, page 8

Fourth of July donations It’s getting closer to Lennox’s big celebration! The Old Fashioned Fourth of July events are scheduled and ready to go. The climax of the day’s events is the Old Fashioned Fourth of July Fireworks Show. This crowd pleaser show is the perfect ending to the day. As in past years, the Lennox Commercial Club is asking for your donations to help offset the cost of this event. If you would like to donate to the fireworks show, you may use the envelope inserted in this week’s paper. You can drop your donation in the mail or drop it off at The Lennox Independent office. The Commercial Club thanks you for your donations.

Relay for Life event in Lennox The first Relay for Life Rally was held in Lennox on Friday, June 15, 2012 thanks to the planning of local woman, Jolene Kuper and the volunteers who helped. Jolene was inspired to help raise funds for the American Cancer Society by her father, Verlyn Muller, who recently battled cancer. The walk was a success, raising $2,500. Pictured above are those who participated in the “Survivor’s Lap” during Friday’s event. At right is the team that walked for Kayla Plimpton, of Lennox.

be annexed into the city without it having to affect their property tax rates. This could be beneficial to those who are planning to develop their property or who are planning to sell the property to a developer. The property could be annexed into the city and until such time as development occurs, it would continue to be taxed at the township rate rather than the city rate. Schriever said this could be an advantage to a potential developer, saving him both time and money. “Say there are two properties a developer is looking at,” said Schriever. “One is already annexed into the City and you can

start working on it right away, the other one has to go through the whole annexation process, which puts off the development 90 days. Even if they are the same price, he’s going to pick the one he can start on right away.” The establishment of this district will allow people who want to be annexed into the city do that more easily. Property owners will not be forced into annexation. Although there is a forced annexation process, the City of Lennox has never used this process, Schriever said. Properties have been annexed only at the request of the property owner. ■ CITY, page 3



[This column is the second in a two-part series.] Earlier this year, the South Dakota Supreme Court heard an appeal involving a proposal to disband a Hutterite colony near Aberdeen. The previous column (Part One) traced the history of the Hutterite tradition from the 1500’s. Its followers encountered persecution from the beginning and initially sought refuge in Moravia, which is part of the modern-day Czech Republic. Moravia’s openness and religious tolerance was fleeting, however. Within a decade, the Hutterites were banished and their founder, Jacob Hutter, was burned at the stake. Jacob’s crime: heresy against King Ferdinand’s chosen religion. The Hutterites scattered for safety. Some would later return to Moravia, counseled by the leadership of Peter Riedermann. He was imprisoned for his faith. For three centuries, the communal Hutterites continued to search for a safe place to call home. The journey was long and difficult. At one point, their numbers dwindled to just 49 members. During their exodus to Russia, the tiny group survived by eating weeds and tree bark. It is difficult to understand why the Hutterites’ neighbors were so unwilling to accept them. Hutterites are peaceful, industrious, and faithful… universal qualities that we all strive for. (The Hutterites also invented the first kindergarten.) But bigotry is not rational, so perhaps there will never be a good explanation for centuries of mistreatment. One constant source of friction, though, has been one of church vs. state. In particular, the Hutterite commitment to absolute pacifism is at odds with any government that institutes a military draft. Pacifism is not a problem during times of peace. But at almost every stop along their journey, sooner or later the local government demanded military service from their able-bodied men. And the Hutterites had two choices: submit or leave. Living communally was also difficult to sustain, due to external and internal pressures. The Hutterites abandoned their communal colonies during two, separate half-century periods. The first abandonment (in 1690) was caused by persecution and pillaging from outsiders. The second time (in 1819) resulted, instead, from infighting about money and their religious principles. In the face of uncertainty, family ties took priority over the community. The colony was dissolved and the assets were divided equally. Fifty years later, three communal colonies were re-established in the Ukraine, under the leadership of three separate men, whose last names are familiar in South Dakota (Waldner, Walter, and Wipf). Those three colonies found initial success, though they disagreed about each other’s methods and beliefs. Meanwhile, the Czar of Russia had announced the end of religious freedom for the Hutterites. Thus, the one thing they could agree on was the need to relocate. This time, the destination would be the American heartland. In 1873, a delegation led by Paul Tschetter traveled to the United States to search for a suitable home. He inspected farm sites from Omaha to Manitoba,

and his top choice was the Red River Valley. Based on his reports, the three groups began arriving the following year. They settled near Yankton, rather than in the Red River Valley, for reasons that are unclear. (One source suggests that a railroad ticketing agent in Chicago mistakenly routed the group south, rather than north.) Each of the three Hutterite groups established a separate colony (though all were located near each other). Their differences were mild: less a matter of theology than of practice. Over the years, several attempts were made to unify the branches. None of those efforts succeeded, perhaps because the colonies were thriving in their new home and no longer needed the safety of unity. As the colonies grew, they used some of their people and resources to plant new ones. From those three original colonies there are now almost 500 today. The majority of those were aligned with the Waldner branch. However, in recent years that branch found itself growing into two parts: a liberal faction and a conservative faction. Many individual colonies have struggled to choose which half to follow. Some, like the Hutterville colony near Aberdeen, are at a stalemate. Since each colony is organized as a non-profit corporation, some of the members sought to use corporate law to settle the dispute in court. * * * When the shareholders and directors of a company are deadlocked, the legal solution is to dissolve the company, sell the assets, and divide them fairly among the shareholders. This isn’t a common occurrence, but it happens often enough that the Legislature created an entire set of statutes that explain the process. One problem in the Hutterville case was determining who the members are who would divide the assets. According to the definition in the company’s charter, “members” are colony residents who follow the tenets of the Hutterite religion. This proved problematic for our Supreme Court. Our First Amendment guarantees the separation of church and state. This usually is understood to mean that the legislature isn’t going to create a state-sponsored religion. However, it also means that the judicial branch is not allowed to wade into controversies of religious doctrine. Here, resolving the issue of colony membership hinges directly on religious questions, namely what the tenets of the faith are and who is correctly following them. The Court, as an arm of the state, has no ability to decide such things. Thus, it dismissed the entire case. Although this leaves the colony’s members without any legal remedy, it is perhaps the most fitting result. After five centuries of searching, the Hutterites have finally found a government that will leave them alone. * * * Daniel K.

Some things remain same in midst of change


e drove over to Tea this past Saturday and

were again reminded that although we are living in an ever changing world and the landscape of our youth is hard to recognize, some things remain the same—at least to a degree. Tea staged their annual Tea Pot Days, holding a parade and hosting a traveling midway carnival. The carnival rides, especially, brought back many memories of earlier days in Lennox. Not just because we had street carnivals in our town every summer for about fifty years, but also because the carnival company set up in Tea was the Thomas Carnival. Surely there are some of this community who remember well when Lennox was the home

of the Art B. Thomas Shows (later Thomas Carnival). The company headquartered here from 1928 until moving to Texas in the 1970’s. During that half century in Lennox, we were fascinated by that ever-changing carnival world, for we were a part of it, printing posters and tickets for the Thomas Shows and many other carnival companies. We recognized, even then, that traveling carnivals were changing and becoming fewer, but one thing seemed to remain the same. Like the circus, carnival rides and concessions are designed to attract the younger set, and that will never change. Going way back, we remembered that in our childhood we could buy a carnival ride ticket for five or ten cents, but as the rides got larger and more excit-

ing, the price went up some. The big change in prices came because of a thing called inflation, and today one just expects to pay a few dollars for a ride on some contraptions. But still, the kids line up for rides and parents, usually, shell out the money needed for this once-a-year entertainment. That’s the part that hasn’t changed, and we’re kind of happy about that. Still seems that the more challenging the ride, the more the kids like it, serving to fulfill the adventurous spirit of many. We think that beats all that texting and tweeting, or whatever they call being addicted to those electronic devices that confines too many to a world devoid of real physical challenges. Many folks may think (and wish) that the traveling carnival is a thing of the past, but we hope it never is. Perhaps because there are so few things the same today as they were in our younger days, we just enjoy seeing a carni-

val ride in operation once in a while. Not that we are about to get on one of those crazy things, but if time and conditions allow, we might check them out again this fall at the Turner County Fair. That’s another institution that just keeps hanging in there, helping us to believe that we have not been completely left behind. There have not been any carnival rides set up in Lennox for a number of years, but we do have our annual 4th of July festivities that also remind us of certain time-honored traditions which we hope never change. The parade, the concessions in the park, the band concert and the fireworks all have their origins in the distant past, but we still cherish them. Yes, in the midst of change, we still find satisfaction in some things that seem to remain unchanged. We hope you do, too.

Hearing to be held for urban and rural services district

Part of recording fees to fund technology BY ANDY WILCOX S I O U X VA L L E Y N E W S

The Lincoln County Commission met in regular session on Thursday, June 7 due to primary elections on June 5. Becky Mathiesen was first on the agenda to discuss the new technology fund and recording fees for the County that start July 1, 2012. Every document the recorder’s office receives will be $30. Five dollars of every $30 will go to a technology fund. Three of those dollars will stay with the County, while two of the dollars will go to the State. An example of the things that can be purchased include software, restoration of the records, equipment, supplies, contract services, training, maintenance equipment. There can be no salaries taken from the money or used for the general fund, according to Mathiesen. The fund is to only be used for the modernization of the records, basically. The money sent to the state will be divided up 66 ways by county and distributed back to the counties at the end of the year. “We’ve been working with Active Data on our software. We’re just waiting until July 1 to start,” said Mathiesen. “Basically, its going to help your bottom line,” said Commissioner Dennis Weeldreyer. Mathiesen agreed. Deputy District Attorney Mike Nadolski recommended Tonya Rasmussen be approved as an appointment to the Mental Illness Board. Rasmussen’s appointment was approved. The Commission discussed the lease on P-1 at the airport for a lease agreement. The Commission approved publishing the notice. The public hearing will be June 25 at 9:15 a.m. The Commission approved the motion to closeout the overlay project on the Marv Skie Airport. The Commission approved a malt beverage and wine license for YWCA of Sioux Falls. The license was June 7 for a fundraiser, but it was able to be approved. Commissioner Jim Schmidt received an invitation to do a tour of Blood Run. The state has acquired property and is in the process of raising additional funds to acquire more land. “I think it would be good on June 19 to go down there and take a tour. They are going to ask Lincoln County to make an investment in this area. The City of Brandon has put up $100,000 to the project. I still think it would be a good idea to call him and get a tour of the facility.” The Commission agreed and set a tour date to look over the location. According to Schmidt, the SEC-

OG District represents 32% of the state’s population. The poverty level in this area is $22,350 for a family of four. The SECOG District has 1.4% of children receiving assistance for needy families. Statewide there are 72.5 deaths per 100,000, but in the SECOG District, the percentage is 36.4. The rate in 2004-08 was 50%. The after-prom parties, Sheriff’s departments and other agencies have helped keep the public safe, according to Schmidt. The County discussed the refund of 2009 and 2010 taxes on the Soukup property. Don Burma was present to discuss the matter. Because the owners do not have to appear before the equalization, the County can refund the taxes because the deadline is within the four years ascribed by law. The Commission approved the refund of the taxes pad of $2,070.59 and $2,048.96 for the Carl and Marietta Soukup house moved off in 2008. Planning and Zoning Department Head Paul Aslesen was present to talk about the on-site wastewater systems ordinance. The objective was to put a plan in place to monitor new installations and repair of systems. The repair of the systems are put into the hands of the installers so they can have an archive of the property. “In the future, when new landowners come in, we can tell them when the property was updated.” I think we have an equitable system put together that works with the installers and landowners,” said Aslesen. The County believes they are being proactive rather than reactive with the ordinance. The Commission approved the new wastewater treatment ordinance. The Commission approved out of county travel for Shelly Britt, Janice DeBuhr, Heidi Benson and Donna Plucker for Dept. of Revenue Sales Ration Workshop June 27. The Good Samaritan Society of Sioux Falls, notified the County they are holding a golf tournament at Spring Creek Golf Course, at which a raffle will be held. They are required by law to notify the County, but action is not required. The amount the County paid over time was substantial on a medical case brought before the Commission. The lien is substantial, according to Nadolski. The case of the lien compromise is due to medical costs of a female resident of the County, who has passed away. The lien is approximately $65,000 and was upheld by the Commission and the appeal for a lien compromise was denied by the Commission. The lien is necessary because

the County is obligated to pay the hospitals for indigent cases, but the parties responsible are still required to pay the amount, or in this case, appeal to the county for leniency. It is an obligation, said Nadolski. The Lincoln County Commission met again in regular session on June 12 with the major part of the agenda being the 2013 budget. The County held a first reading of the on-site waste water ordinance. The ordinance changes the way waste water replacement procedures and septic system repair and replacement. Essentially, the ordinance does not change a great deal, but it does require certified installers to follow guidelines of the County for replacement and repair of waste water treatment equipment in the County. The Commission approved the first reading, with the second reading to be held June 26 at 10:30 a.m. • The Commission heard from Emil Klepel in regard to a rental. Klepel has made efforts to increase his savings to take care of the rent. The Commission set the rent at $55 for Klepel. • Commissioner Jim Schmidt noted Minnehaha County and City of Sioux Falls has recommended the group meet the fourth Tuesday at 7 p.m. with the Lincoln County group at the Carnegie Center in Sioux Falls. This is the joint meeting with the City of Sioux Falls and Lincoln County. • The Human Resource Service was discussed. Deputy States Attorney Mike Nadolksi asked the Commission to figure out what services were needed and what type of agreement should be worked out. The Commission agreed the service should cover the whole gamut of the human resources. The County would be looking for a part-time, shared position for the resource position. The benefit of a human resources position helps take some of the pressure off department heads. If there is a termination involved, a human resource officer can help make that termination legally correct. I do think we should have that resource available. This is an added resource available to them and their employees, said Commissioner Schmidt. Commissioner Jason Melcher wondered how the process would work with a shared person. He had concerns of how it would work to share the person between the counties and if there would be any problems. “The bottom line is how much it’s going to cost,” Melcher said. They’re not going to put any additional policies or items on the staff, its more for resource, said Nadolski. The resource officer would help implement programs

Something to get excited about!

that work with department heads. Ultimately, the decision made will still be the County’s responsibility. If counties can work together, it can save the taxpayer’s money. Any time we can work together with Minnehaha County, it helps all of us. Commissioner Dave Gillespie said a couple department heads came to him and wanted to be sure this individual does not interfere with the elected officials ability to manage their staff. The Commission gave their blessing to move forward on the issue. • Ron Wieczorek from Mount Vernon talked to the County Commission about a particular piece of legislation he is trying to get passed at the federal level. He requested the Glass–Steagall Act be put back on the books as originally written by Gov. Peter Norbeck, the ninth Governor of South Dakota. The bill was on the books from 1933 to 2000. It divided commercial banks from investment banks. Wieczorek felt if the government put the law back on the books it would help prevent another financial collapse similar to the one in 2008 that prompted the Great Recession. “This thing is really starting to pop in the international engine, the Wall Street Journal did a story on it.” He provided Commissioners information about the law and opinion articles about the law. In the House there are 69 congressmen that have signed onto the bill for the reinstatement of the bill. Mark Fairchild called Commissioner Gillespie and is helping organize the group promoting the reinstituting of the law. “What do we do to save the nation from a national financial crisis?” asked Wieczorek. The Commission accepted the information, but because it was not an agenda item could not take action during the meeting. “I would like to thank Dale Gilbertson and Ron for coming down and speaking,” said Commissioner Gillespie. • The Commission will take an hour at the June 26 to review the 2013 budget from 10:05 to 11 a.m. and adjourned for the day.

■ CITY, from page 1

“The main advantage [to annexation] is if someone wants to sell their property or develop it, they would have only one government entity to deal with,” said Schriever. Properties one mile outside of Lennox now have to deal with both the county and the city; if the property were annexed into the city, the property owner would only have to deal with the City. The creation of this district will not affect anyone who is outside of the City limits. “We’re not looking at forced annexation,” Schriever reiterated. “We’re looking at creating an easier path to annexation, one that has advantages to the property owner and the city.” If you have more questions about the urban and rural services district, you may attend the public hearing on June 28 at Lennox City Hall.

Schriever added that there is really no advantage or disadvantage to businesses that want to be annexed into the city under the urban and rural services district. “It’s neutral,” said Schriever. “It just changes where the money flows.” The tax money (at the township rate) would come to the City instead of the township. Also, any sales tax collected by the business would be at the city rate. Any property annexed into the City would be required to abide by city ordinances. However, the urban and rural services district would have different uses and therefore different regulations. Rural use would allow for different things to be built on that property, for instance. Building codes would be the same, as Lincoln County and the City of Lennox have identical building codes.

Services were to be held Wednesday, June 20 at Chancellor Reformed Church for Inez Winterboer, 82, who died Monday, June 18, 2012 at the Sanford Centennial Hospice Cottage in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Officiating during the service was the Rev. LeRoy Boender and Rev. Dr. Harlan Hayunga. Karen Westerman was organist. Nicole Winterboer was soloist. Pallbearers were Inez’s grandchildren Jason Winterboer, Jamie (Brad) Urban, Meghan (Joe) Gunia, Chad Svendsen, Megan Winterboer, Andrew Winterboer, Mason Winterboer, Amy (Mike) Mattheis, Derek (Nicole) Winterboer, Beth (Eric) Brynjulson, and Jared (Jamie) Winterboer. Interment was in the Chancellor Reformed Cemetery. Inez Marie Hieb was born on Sept. 29, 1929 near Reliance, South Dakota, the daughter of Fred and Mary (Reuer) Hieb. She attended rural school and two years of high school at Reliance. With her family she moved near Lyons, SD where she graduated from Lyons High School in 1947. On October 22, 1948 she was united in marriage to Orval Winterboer at the Chancellor Reformed Church parsonage. The couple lived briefly in Sioux Falls and Chancellor before moving to the family farm southeast of Chancellor in 1950. Inez worked as a cashier for the Dakota Heritage State Bank in Chancellor, eventually becoming a vice-president. Her career at the bank began when her youngest son Brad began school and continued for the next 36 years. Inez was a member of the Chancellor Reformed Church and belonged to the women’s guild.

Former area resident dies in Waukesha, WI Qintin H. Sutton of Waukesha, Wisconsin, died on Thursday, June 7, 2012 at the age of 86. He was born on August 29, 1925 in Tea, SD, the son of William and Helena (nee Pass) Sutton. Quintin attended grade school in Tea and graduated from Lennox High School in 1943. He proudly served his country in the U.S. Navy during World War II in the South Pacific. In 1948, he married the former Marjorie Krohn in Milwaukee, and in 1950 Quintin graduated from Milwaukee School of Engineering. For over 35 years he worked as an engineer for the RTE corporation before retiring in 1988. Quint and Marge enjoyed many years at their Nagawicka Lake cottage and

Horse Liniment Erases Pain

HIALEAH, FL — An ingredient often used to treat inflammation in race horse legs, is now back on the market in its original doctor recommended clinical strength formula. According to a national drug store survey, the formula at one time became so popular that it rose to the top of pharmacy sales for topical pain relievers. But the company marketing the product at the time changed the formula and sales plummeted. One of the inventors of the original formula has brought it back to the market under the trade name ARTH ARREST and says it can relieve pain for millions. ARTH ARREST works by a dual mechanism whereby one ingredient relieves pain immediately, while a second ingredient seeks out and destroys the pain messenger signal before it can be sent to the brain. Considered a medical miracle by some, the ARTH ARREST formula is useful in the treatment of painful disorders ranging from minor aches and pains to more serious conditions such as arthritis, bursitis, tendonitis, backache and more. ARTH ARREST is available in a convenient roll-on applicator at pharmacies without a prescription or call 1-800-339-3301. Now at:

Take out credit cards and other plastic cards you don’t use. Do you need all those keys you have on your key ring? Another way to check the weight you carry around: when you buy a new purse, check how much hardware is on your purse and what kind of materials it is made of. Wide straps also put less pressure on your shoulders rather than narrow ones. A good way to make your lemonade healthier is to sweeten it with a little bit of honey than sugar.

A special thank you to the Girls Scouts in Lennox who recently made a donation of food items to The Exchange. They came up with this idea on their own and carried it out with the help of the leaders and parents. We appreciate you thinking of others and carrying out your project. We enjoyed the time you spent with us learning of how this food pantry works in this community. Also a thank you to the young man from Chancellor who had a birthday party and asked those in attendance to bring items for the food pantry. Another great example of a young person who has learned to “care and share” with others in need in the community. Thank you to parents who are teaching their children to look beyond themselves and seek to make our community a better place for others. We are grateful to West Prairie Lutheran Church for their huge donation of canned tuna.

love to read. It’s what I do when I’m not writing or getting absorbed in a good TV show or movie. My favorite author is Jodi Picoult. She has a kind of staying power; scenes from her novels will stick with me long after I’ve finished reading. Some people say Picoult’s novels tend to be depressing, but I disagree. I appreciate her realism. Life isn’t always about happy endings and fairy tales. I would describe Picoult’s stories—she has 19 novels, several of which have been on the New York Times bestsellers list—as realistic fiction. She writes about what ordinary people do when extraordinary events occur in their lives; how they cope and

recover. Her characters are extremely believable and the storylines are natural, but not necessarily predictable. One Picoult novel almost everyone has heard of (or watched the movie version of), My Sister’s Keeper (2004), was the first Jodi Picoult novel I read. The story delves into the ethics of stem cell technology and how far an unwilling, underage donor can be pushed. Definitely a tearjerker, but also a worthwhile story. The 2009 movie of the same title, starring Cameron Diaz, Abigail Breslin and Alec Baldwin, wasn’t quite as good as the book (are movie adaptations ever as good as the books they’re based on?), but still worth watching at least once. Abigail Breslin’s depiction of

Anna Fitzgerald is fantastic. Picoult’s House Rules (2010) has a large pool of potential readers and will probably make it to the big screen. The main character, Jacob, is a teenage boy affected by Asperger’s syndrome, which is a form of autism. When his tutor is found dead, the police mistake the hallmark behaviors attributed to Asperger’s as signs of guilt. Given that recent estimates show that about one in 88 U.S. children have some form of autism, this book should appeal to a lot of people. In an interview published on, Jodi Picoult revealed that the hardest part about being successful is ”saying no” to many of the requests that she gets to appear at schools, book

Picoult’s advice: “Let them read what they WANT to… If school assignments are involved, let them read one book of choice for every one that they “have” to read.” In addition to letting kids choose which books to read, Picoult says it is also important that adults model the behavior they want to encourage by reading books themselves.

The Medemas opened the store in May and are excited at how the news has spread of their opening. “Right now I have five vendors, I’m consigning for three, and most of it is mine,” she said of the merchandise. Of course, she is quick to add, she relies a lot on her mother- and father-inlaw, Don and Mary Giles, who love to go antiquing. Her father-in-law is also big in coin collecting. Jackie likes to say that there is “something for your heart, mind, body, and soul” in Nifty Thrify. There is new merchandise coming in daily. Jackie is willing to work with people to get new items in her store; either by buying items outright, placing them on consignment or renting space to a vendor. If you are interested in placing items in her store, you may contact Jackie at 605-370-2148. Nifty Thrifty will also be hosting Flea Market Days. The next flea market is scheduled for June 23 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. If you are interested in having a table at the flea market, contact Jackie at the above number. Flea Market Days for the remainder of the summer will be July 21, Aug. 18 and Sept. 15. Nifty Thrifty is open on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 4 to 7 p.m. and on Saturday from 10 a.m. to five p.m. Jackie wanted to thank her sister, Tracy Kerbo for her help in getting the store open. “She’s my big inspiration,” she acknowledged. The Medemas welcome everyone to stop in and check out the new store. She reminds people, “The store is different every week; if you don’t find what you want this week, come back again.”

SECTION 2. Declaration of Necessity and Findings. 2.1. Declaration of Necessity. The City hereby determines and declares it is necessary to construct and finance improvements to its System described as the Project. 2.2. Findings. The City does

hereby find as follows: 2.2.1. The City hereby expressly finds that if the Project is not undertaken, the System will pose a health hazard to the City and its inhabitants, and will make the City unable to comply with state and federal law. 2.2.2. Because of the functional interdependence of the various portions of the System, the fact that the System may not lawfully operate unless it complies with State and federal laws, including SDCL Chapter 34A-2, and the federal Clean Water Act, and the nature of the improvements financed, the City hereby finds and determines that the Project will substantially benefit the entire System and all of its users within the meaning of Sections 15 and 17 of the Act. 2.2.3. The City hereby determines and finds that for the purposes of the Act, including, in particular, Sections 15 and 17 of the Act, that only the net income from the system as improved, financed by the Revenue Bond, be pledged for its payment. SECTION 3. Authorization of Loan, Pledge of Revenue and Security. 3.1. Authorization of Loan. The City hereby determines and declares it necessary to finance up to $459,832 of the costs of the Project through the issuance of bonds payable from revenues of the Project and other funds secured by the City. The City hereby determines that because the Revenue Bond is issued in connection with a financing agreement described in SDCL 46A-1-49, pursuant to Section 15 of the Act no election is required to issue the Revenue Bond. 3.2. Approval of Loan Agreement. The execution and delivery of the Revenue Obligation Loan Agreement (the “Loan Agreement”), the form of which is on file with the City Finance Officer (the “Finance Officer”) and open to public inspection, between the City as Borrower and the District, are hereby in all respects authorized, approved and confirmed, and the Mayor and Finance Officer are hereby authorized and directed to execute and deliver the Loan Agreement in the form and content attached hereto, with such changes as the attorney for the City deems appropriate and approves, for and on behalf of the City. The Mayor and Finance Officer are hereby further authorized and directed to implement and perform the covenants and obligations of the City set forth in or required by the Loan Agreement. The Loan Agreement herein referred to and made a part of this Resolution is on file in the office of the Finance Officer and is available for inspection by any interested party. 3.3. Approval of Revenue Bond. The issuance of a revenue bond in a principal amount not to exceed $459,832 as determined according to the Loan Agreement in the form and content set forth in Appendix B attached to the form of Loan Agreement (the “Revenue Bond”) shall be and the same is, in all respects, hereby authorized, approved, and confirmed and the Mayor, Finance Officer, and other appropriate officials shall be and are hereby authorized and directed to execute and seal the Revenue Bond and deliver the Revenue Bond to the District, for and on behalf of the City, upon receipt of the purchase price, and to use the proceeds thereof in the manner set forth in the Loan Agreement. The Mayor and Finance Officer are hereby authorized to approve the final terms of the Revenue Bond and their execution and delivery thereof shall evidence that approval. The Revenue Bond shall be issued under the authority of SDCL Chapter 9-40 and SDCL Chapter 6-8B, and the provisions of the Act are hereby expressly incorporated herein as provided in Section 19 of the Act. 3.4. Pledge of Revenues. The Revenue Bond together with the interest thereon, shall not constitute a charge against the City’s general credit or taxing power, but shall be a limited obligation of the City payable solely out of the Project Debt Service Account, which payments, revenues and receipts are hereby and in the Loan Agreement pledged and assigned for the equal and ratable payments of the Revenue Bond and shall be used for no other purpose than to pay the principal of, interest and Administrative Surcharge on the Revenue Bond, except as may be otherwise expressly authorized in the Loan Agreement (including the purpose of securing Additional Bonds issued as permitted by the terms thereof). The City covenants and agrees to charge rates for all services from the Project or establish special charges or surcharges which will be sufficient to provide for the payments upon the Revenue Bond issued hereunder as and when the same become due, and as may be necessary to provide for the operation and maintenance and repairs of the Project, and depreciation, and the Rate Resolution shall be revised from time to time so as to produce these amounts. The City hereby reserves the right to determine on a periodic basis the appropriate allocation of operation and maintenance expenses, depreciation, repair and reserves associated with the facilities financed with the Revenue Bond, provided that such determination of allocable operation and maintenance expenses shall in no event abrogate, abridge or otherwise contravene the covenant of the City set forth in this Section 3 or any other covenant or agreement in the Loan Agreement. SECTION 4. Special Charge or Surcharge for Revenue Bond. 4.1. The City does hereby create the Revenue Bond SpecialSurcharge District (the “District”) which shall include all users which benefit from the Project. There shall be charged a special charge or surcharge pursuant to Section 15 of the Act for the services provided by Project financed by the Revenue Bond. The special charge or surcharge shall be segregated from other revenues of the System and shall be used for the payment of the Revenue Bond. The special charge or surcharge shall create net income, remaining from time to time after first paying all reasonable and current expenses of maintenance, repairs, replacements and operation, sufficient to fund interest, reserve and debt service fund annual requirements and shall be 110% of the debt service requirements on the Revenue Bond. 4.2. Rates and collection. The rate herein specific will be collected as a special charge or surcharge for the Project. This special charge or surcharge shall remain in effect until such time as the Revenue Bond is defeased or paid in full. 4.3. Initial Surcharge. The initial special charge or surcharge shall be set by resolution and collected at the

same time as other charges of the utility. All users within the District which benefit from the Project, current and future, shall be charged the special charge or surcharge. The special charge or surcharge is found to be equitable for the services provided by the Project. The special charge or surcharge shall begin at such time as will produce sufficient revenue to pay principal of, interest and Administrative Surcharge on the Revenue Bond when due. 4.4. Segregation. The Finance Officer shall setup bookkeeping accounts in accordance with South Dakota Legislative Audit guidelines for the segregation of the revenue, special charges and surcharges. 4.5. Periodic review. The amount of the surcharge shall be reviewed from time to time, not less than yearly, and shall be modified in order to produce such funds as are necessary and required to comply with the Loan Agreement’s rate covenant and to pay principal of, interest and Administrative Surcharge on the Revenue Bond when due. The surcharge may be set by resolution in accordance with this Section. The rate resolution shall be necessary for the support of government and shall be effective upon passage. SECTION 5. Additional Bonds. As permitted by Sections 8 and 9 of the Act, Additional Bonds payable from revenues and income of the System or the Project may be issued, as permitted in the Loan Agreement, and no provision of this Resolution shall have the effect of restricting the issuance of, or impairing the lien of, such additional parity bonds with respect to the net revenues or income from the extensions, additions or improvements. The City shall have the right to issue additional bonds secured by a lien subordinate to the lien from the Revenue Bond pursuant to the Loan Agreement. SECTION 6. Project Fund Accounts. For the purpose of application and proper allocation of income of the Project and to secure the payment of principal, Administrative Surcharge and interest on the Revenue Bond, the following mandatory asset segregations shall be included in the sewer system account of the City and shall be used solely for the following respective purposes until payment in full of the principal of and interest on the Revenue Bond: 6.1. Project Revenue Account. There shall be deposited periodically into the Project Revenue Account the net revenues as defined in Section 17 of the Act derived from the operation of the Project collected pursuant to the Ordinances and resolutions of the City of Worthing, South Dakota (collectively the “Rate Ordinance”). Moneys from the Project Revenue Account shall be transferred periodically into separate funds and accounts as provided below. 6.2. Project Debt Service Account. Out of the revenues in the Project Revenue Account, there shall be set aside no later than the 25th day of each month into the account designated Project Debt Service Account, a sum sufficient to provide for the payment as the same become due of the next maturing principal of, interest and Administrative Surcharge on the Revenue Bonds and any reserve determined by the City’s governing body to be necessary. The amount set aside monthly shall be not less than one-third of the total principal, interest, and Administrative Surcharge payable on the following January 15, April 15, July 15, or October 15 and if there shall be any deficiency in the amount previously set aside, then the amount of such deficiency shall be added to the current requirement. 6.3. Depreciation Account. There shall be established a General Depreciation Account. Out of the revenues of the Project Revenue Account there shall be set aside each month into the General Depreciation Account an amount determined by the Common Council to be a proper and adequate amount for repair and depreciation of the Project. 6.4. Project Surplus Account. There shall be established the Project Surplus Account. Revenues remaining in the Project Revenue Account at the end of any fiscal year after all periodic transfers have been made therefrom as above required, shall be deemed to be surplus and shall be transferred to the Project Surplus Account. If at any time there shall exist any default in making any periodic transfer to the Project Debt Service Account, the Common Council shall authorize the City Finance Officer to rectify such default so far as possible by the transfer of money from the Project Surplus Account. If any such default shall exist as to more than one account or fund at any time, then such transfer shall be made in the order such funds and accounts are listed above. When not required to restore a current deficiency in the Project Debt Service Account, moneys in the Project Surplus Account from time to time may be used for any of the following purposes and not otherwise: (a) To redeem and prepay the Revenue Bond when and as such Revenue Bond becomes prepayable according to its terms; (b) To pay for repairs of or for the construction and installation of improvements or additions to the System; and, if the balances in the Project Debt Service Account and the Project Depreciation Account are sufficient to meet all payments required or reasonably anticipated to be made there from prior to the end of the then current fiscal year, then: (c) To be held as a reserve for redemption and prepayment of any bonds of the System which are not then but will later be prepayable according to their terms; or (d) To be used for any other authorized municipal purpose designated by the Common Council. (e) No moneys shall at any time be transferred from the Project Surplus Account or any other account of the Fund to any other fund of the City, nor shall such moneys at any time be loaned to other municipal funds or invested in warrants, special improvements bonds or other obligations payable from other funds, except as provided in this Section. SECTION 7. Approval of Paying Agent/Registrar. The Revenue Bond shall be payable at the office of The First National Bank in Sioux Falls, Sioux Falls, South Dakota, hereby designated as paying agent and registrar. SECTION 8. Approval of Bond Counsel. Meierhenry Sargent LLP is hereby retained as Bond Counsel with respect to the Revenue Bond. SECTION 9. Tax Matters.

The City covenants and agrees that pursuant to Sections 25 through 27 of the Act, the lawful holders of the Revenue Bond shall have a statutory mortgage lien upon the Project and the extensions, additions and improvements thereto acquired pursuant to the Act, until the payment in full of the principal and interest on the Revenue Bond, and the City agrees not to sell or otherwise dispose of the System, the Project, or any substantial part thereof, except as provided in the Loan Agreement and shall not establish, authorize or grant a franchise for the operation of any other utility supplying like products or services in competition therewith, or permit any person, firm or corporation to compete with it in the distribution of water for municipal, industrial, and domestic purposes within the City. 10.4. The City covenants and agrees with the District and other owners of the Revenue Bond that it will maintain the System in good condition and operate the same in an efficient manner and at a reasonable cost, so long as any portion of the Revenue Bond remains outstanding; that it will maintain insurance on the System for the benefit of the holders of the Revenue Bond in an amount which usually would be carried by private companies in a similar type of business; that it will prepare, keep and file records, statements and accounts as provided for in this Resolution and the Loan Agreement. The Revenue Bond shall refer expressly to this Resolution and the Act and shall state that it is subject to all provisions and limitations thereof pursuant to Section 19 of the Act. SECTION 11. Depositories. The Finance Officer shall cause all moneys pertaining to the Funds and Accounts to be deposited as received with one or more banks which are duly qualified public depositories under the provisions of SDCL Ch. 4-6A, in a deposit account or accounts, which shall be maintained separate and apart from all other accounts of the City, so long as any of the Bonds and the interest thereon shall remain unpaid. Any of such moneys not necessary for immediate use may be deposited with such depository banks in savings or time deposits. No money shall at any time be withdrawn from such deposit accounts except for the purposes of the Funds and Accounts as authorized in this Resolution; except that moneys from time to time on hand in the Funds and Accounts may at any time, in the discretion of the City’s governing body, be invested in securities permitted by the provisions of SDCL 4-5-6; provided, however, that the Depreciation Fund may be invested in such securities maturing not later than ten years from the date of the investment. Income received from the deposit or investment of moneys shall be credited to the Fund or Account from whose moneys the deposit was made or the investment was purchased, and handled and accounted for in the same manner as other moneys therein.

In the event of mismanagement of the Project, a default in the payment of the principal or interest of the Revenue Bond, or in any other condition thereof materially affecting the lawful holder of the Revenue Bond, or if the revenues of the Project are dissipated, wasted or diverted from their proper application as set forth in the Loan Agreement, Revenue Bond, or herein, the City hereby consents to the appointment of a receiver pursuant to Section 33 of the Act, and agrees that the receiver will have the powers set forth therein, and in Sections 34 and 35 of the Act to operate and administer the Project, and charge and collect rates as described therein.

If any section, paragraph, clause or provision of this Resolution, the Loan Agreement, the Revenue Bond, or any other Loan Document shall be held invalid, the invalidity of such section, paragraph, clause or provision shall not affect any of the other provisions of this Resolution or said Loan Agreement, Revenue Bond, or any other Loan Document.
