Gov. Daugaard announces $811,059 loan for Worthing Projects PIERRE, S.D. – Gov. Dennis Daugaard says the state Board of Water and Natural Resources has approved an $811,059 funding package to Worthing for drinking water, sanitary sewer, and storm sewer improvements. The funding includes a $301,227 Drinking Water State Revolving Fund loan for water line replacement, with $200,000 of that in principal forgiveness; and a $50,000 grant from the Consolidated Water Facilities Construction Program and a $459,832 Clean Water State Revolving Fund loan to replace sanitary sewer and install storm sewer lines. “This loan will help Worthing make much-needed improvements to
the city’s drinking water and sewer systems,” Gov. Daugaard said. The drinking water project involves replacing 1,600 feet of 4-inch asbestos, cement pipe water mains with 6-inch PVC. The sanitary sewer project involves replacing 500 feet of clay pipe with PVC pipe, replacing manholes, and installing new sewer pipe to property lines. The project area includes portions of Second, Third, and Juniper streets. It also involves installation of curb and gutter and associated storm sewer collection lines. The total cost of the drinking water improvements is $301,227; the sanitary and storm sewer improvements total $890,091. The terms for
both loans are 3 percent interest for 20 years. The Consolidated Water Facilities Construction Program provides grants and loans for water, wastewater, and watershed projects statewide. The Drinking Water State Revolving Fund Program provides low-interest loans for public drinking water system projects. One of the program requirements is that some of the funds be provided as a subsidy. Principal forgiveness is a subsidy option that results in a reduced loan repayment amount for the borrower. The Clean Water State Revolving Fund Program provides low-interest loans for wastewater and storm water projects.

Of course, a tenth birthday ay is very special, but what at re made this day even more he special for Katie was that she rreached 329 AR (Accelerw ated Reading) points, a new school record! The previouss record was 325 points. Elementary school chil-dren in the Lennox Schooll District earn AR points iff R they read a book on the AR list and then pass a test that they take on the computer. The harder the book, the more AR points the children can earn. Although Katie doesn’t always pick out a book for the amount of AR points it has, she had been thinking about it recently. “I wanted to get the record on my birthday,” she said. “The book that helped me pass the record was a five.” The book that pushed Katie to the top was Rose’s Story. “It’s about a girl who Katie Vest, a Worthing likes to ride horses.

Saugstad elected as new Mayor The municipal and school elections were held Apr. 10. Eric Saugstad will become the new Mayor in Worthing, defeating Denise Nelson by a vote of 129 to 85. Winning the two commissioners seats were Troy Larson and Todd Gannon with 146 and 125 votes, respectively. Jennifer Joffer came in a close third with 112 votes. In the Lennox School Board of Education election Renae Buehner defeated incumbent Gordon Sweeter by just two votes—369 to 367. Alan Rops received the most votes with 438. There was an 18.77% voter turnout throughout the District. In the Worthing precinct, 24.52% of the registered voters went to the polls; in the Chancellor precinct, just 6.58%; and in the Lennox precinct, 21.29%.
Last day of school set for May 15 with 2:30 dismissal The Lennox School District Board of Education meet Monday night, April 9. The board listened to a report from Kari Oyen about the highlights from the APBS International Conference that she recently attended. “It was an honor and privilege to go,” Oyen said. Superintendent Robert Mayer spoke to the board regarding a lunch that he had with politicians, Gene Abdallah, and June Nusz. Nusz is running for one of the new District 6 house seats. Abdallah is running for the State Senate. Mayer said, “I thought we were well received. The issue we tried to make sure they understood was the key to funding schools in this state is to fund the formula.” Mayer added, “It’s very seldom that I’ve had a give and take like that. I do think that people are listening, that legislators are listening a little more.” The membership into the SDHSAA was approved. Mayer did let the board members know that a vote may be coming to the SDHSAA regarding open enrollment and athletic participation. Currently if a student starts at the beginning of the year they can participate, if the student comes during the year, they are required to wait 9 weeks to participate. Mayer said, “The new amendment will mean—you cannot participate in varsity athletics for one year.”
Welcome to the
Mayer explained that the ammendement was the result of 31 schools petitioning the SDHSAA Board. Mayer felt it was an attempt to preserve the local athletic program. He added, “My recommendation is to vote against it. How is that in the best interest of kids? You can take an academic course, but not athletics.” School Business Manager Angela Arlt brought to the board the possibility to seek proposals on banking. Arlt said that she had been approached by Dakota Heritage State Bank about moving more accounts to that bank. She explained that Dakota Heritage was willing to make remote deposit available. Currently the School District has accounts at all three banks in the district, Home Federal, Valley Exchange Bank and Dakota Heritage State Bank. But Home Federal is the main bank. After checking with other school districts, Angela said it is not unusual for school districts to seek proposals from banks within the district every 3, 5, or ten years. Board member, Sandy Poppenga said, “I don’t think it would hurt to check around.” The board voted to seek proposals on banking. The last day of school is scheduled for May 16th, Mayer said, but he proposed extending hours on May 15th and using May 16th as inservice day. ■ SCHOOL BOARD, page 3

Signs of Aging BY JOHN CHICOINE
BOOMER BABBLE – THOUGHTS AT LARGE
ge has never bothered me. Some people freak out when they reach the milestones of their lives like the 30’s, 40’s, 50’s and 60’s, but I never did. Perhaps as I grew older, it was more difficult to frighten me. I’ve seen people tear up at 30, freak at 40, fret at 50 and sob at sixty. Let’s face it, aging isn’t all bad. Just think of the trouble we’d have if wrinkles hurt. However, I am terrified of an event coming my way in another year provided I live that long. It dawned on the other day that I graduated from high school in 1963. That was just a few years ago. I remember it like yesterday. I can still picture my classmates sitting at their desks. I can see the classrooms and hear kids laughing. If I don’t look in the mirror, I look just like I did in 1963, well except for the mustache, gray hair and wrinkles. So never having claimed to be a mathematician, I assumed I was incorrect when I calculated next year would be my 50 year class reunion. I was tearing, freaking, fretting and sobbing like a baby. Fifty years, that was impossible! Having attended class reunions every 10 years, I guess I wasn’t paying attention to those 50 year graduates. I just assumed they were really old folks, the old crotchety people with the walkers, wheelchairs, wigs, toupees, drinking prune juice and warm milk at their tables in the back
of the room. Class reunions are strange events. People who live 2,000 miles away will attend. Some who live across the street don’t show up. You look forward to seeing certain people and they aren’t there. You share stories with people and they go “Huh, really, I don’t remember that?” The last time I walked into a reunion no one knew me. I felt so sorry for all of them, their memories and eyes going like that. Next year, I’ll be one of those drinking prune juice. But I’m sure I am much younger than the kids in my class. My birth certificate lists I was born in 1945. However, I suspect the person who registered my birth was dyslexic and wrote 1945 instead of 1954. I haven’t verified this theory with my mother however. Boomer Babble – “Thoughts at Large” are written by the Boomer Babble Guys, Charles Doug and John with occasional help from friends.

he humans are being extra sweet to me; I take this as a bad sign. You know how it is—whenever someone says with a syrupy voice, “How are you feeling?” Followed by a gentle pat on the head. What this means is, “Wow, you look like you’re dying, super sorry, buddy.” So I’ve lost a little weight. So I’ve decided to sleep in my bed 20 hours out of the day—I might have another life to go on. Or I might not, I am about 18, or so they tell me. I do enjoy the extra sweetness the humans provide but I do not like the reminder of how time alters one’s outward appearance. Such is life I suppose, we just have to accept we become what we become—skinny or fat, gray or white haired, sleepier perhaps, as is the case with me. So what do you do when you feel old? Well, I’ve decided with the energetic four hours of every day to ENJOY WHATEVER TIME I GET. Notice how I emphasized that gem of wisdom for you. When something is in all caps, you must, MUST pay close attention. So for these four hours of each day I do something new. I read some book that I had been longing to read. I call an old friend to catch up and say those things I had hoped to say. I volunteer at the Cricket Shelter, I’m now committed to not eating any more of those musical little insects. I write music myself for the Cricket Street Band to perform. I’d like to learn to tap dance but so far have not located a cat tap dance teacher, some entertaining videos online on the subject—but no home or office calls. My days are spent being thankful—for those moments I feel good enough to try and do the things I’ve put off. I’m thankful for those enduring humans with their patronizing, well-meaning care. I’m thankful for it all. Thank you readers for giving this old cat something to work on. DON’T FORGET—ENJOY YOUR OWN LIFE every day.

The trouble with mosquitoes BY RICHARD P. HOLM MD
ho is not familiar with the whining high-pitched mating sound of the invading female mosquito during our all-too-short summer months in the mid-west? After she “finds” the male, actually by matching tunes, she goes on a hunt for the blood of birds, or animals in order to take a required meal so she can lay her eggs. When she finds skin, this tiny flying hypodermic syringe injects through her special needle nose some mosquito saliva to dissolve and lubricate so she can suck up the bloody food. As a matter of fairness, I might add here that the male mosquito is not bloodthirsty and is guilty only by association. But back to the biting: the trouble with this dangerous female (or femme fatale) all comes from her saliva. It is that salivary juice which causes the very itchy raised allergic welt, which we hate so much. Since she only injects saliva, and not blood from her previous victims, the mosquito does not spread diseases like hepatitis or HIV. On the other hand, when the mosquito ingests blood from an

infected animal, and that illness is of the type that can infect the mosquito itself, then we have a problem. She can spread from her infected saliva such horrid illnesses as Malaria and Filariasis, which are parasites. The saliva also can carry deadly viral illnesses such as Dengue, Yellow Fever, Equine Encephalitis, and West Nile Virus. Many of these mosquito-borne illnesses are in developing countries, and one could think “out of sight, out of mind”. But now we realize that we face several possible epidemics in this developed country, which are mosquitospread conditions. So use your mosquito repellant and keep away from that nasty mosquito saliva.

Bolin announces bid for re-election to the legislature State Rep. Jim Bolin, the former mayor of Canton, announced that he will seek reelection to a third term in the South Dakota House of Representatives. Bolin, a member of the Appropriations committee, made the following statement. “I want to continue my work to represent the people of Union and Lincoln counties. I have worked diligently to put the interests of the people in our area ahead of any party agenda or personal goals that I might have. When I agree with any administration in Pierre, I will support them, but if I disagree and believe that the people in our area oppose a particular measure or bill, I will support the interests of the southeastern part of the state. My voting record demonstrates that.” Bolin cited his efforts in supporting the governor’s work force initiative as one example of backing the current administration, but also noted his firm opposition to the controversial educational reform bill ( HB 1234) , as evidence that he is independent minded and makes his own judgments on important issues. As usual, Rep. Bolin will seek to earn voter support by engaging in active door-to-door campaigning. Bolin stated, “With redistricting changing this legislative district slightly, I will concentrate in areas that are new to me. Worthing is now a part of District # 16. I will spend a lot of time in that town, meeting the voters, and seeking support from them. Of course, I

will contact people all through the two counties that I represent. I will continue to work for the common sense, conservative values that I believe are shared by the vast majority of people in this region of the state.” Bolin also cited his work to keep South Dakota’s budget balanced in contrast to the excessive spending so evident at the federal level. Rep. Bolin is a graduate of the University of South Dakota and is married to his wife of 32 years, Ruth. They have two adult, married sons, Christopher and Benjamin, both graduates of Canton High School. District #16 consists of all of Union County and approximately the southern two thirds of Lincoln County. A contested primary election will be held on June 5, with Rep. Bolin running against three other candidates in the Republican primary.
Commissioner of District 2 is David Gillespie, from rural Canton. He has filed a nominating petition to again run on the Republican ticket. Andrew Larsgaard has field a nominating petition to run on the Democratic ticket. Neither candidate faces opposition in the Primary Election, but will face each other at the general election in November.

he Lincoln County Commission met in regular session Tuesday, April 10 and discussed a public defender contract with Cythia Berreau. Berreau inquired about a request for more money in her contract. “It looks like we have a 23% increase in case-load in 2012,” Berreau noted. She has lost her second attorney, who is moving to Texas with his family. The office is searching for new applicants, but may have to utilize local attorneys to help manage the increase until the positions are approved. “I’m requesting a third position for our office; an interim amount of money to get us through to the next budget cycle,” said Berreau. “We do need another attorney, sooner than later, for the county and the indigent people we serve.” “The increase in numbers was quite a bit in the one month, is this going to continue?” asked Commissioner David Gillespie. “We took in 40 new cases in March, and we’re on track to take in 46 in April. I can only anticipate we will go up, not down, during the summer,” Berreau said. “When you grow 87% and you have a population out there that is no different than any other part of the country, you have those out there who break the law,” said Commissioner Jim Schmidt. Mike Nadolski noted the amendment could be brought before the Commission at the last meeting of the month and at that time, an amendment could be put together to provide for that position. Commissioner Jason Melcher asked how the contract would work for time. Nadolski noted the past contract was signed in 2010 with incremental increases through 2015. There were increases built into the existing contract, but the increases may not have accounted for two attorneys, not three. Commissioner Melcher said, “I’ve had a couple people different people talk to me about this
position, but if we’re adjusting contracts and there are other positions, if we open up the contract. I know that there’s people out there that are willing to do it.” “We are not dealing with a contract, we are dealing with the second judicial district. If we don’t have sufficient defense available, the District can appoint.” The open rate is $82 per hour for attorneys. “I understand that if those people don’t get proper representation. I don’t want to spend this money any more than our chairman (Melcher) does,” said Commissioner Gillespie. If there’s other people that are willing to do it or want a part of it, then its worth bringing up the fact that we can renegotiate the contract as a whole,” said Melcher. “Professional services is something I have a hard time bidding out because it is tough,”’ said Commissioner Dale Long. The motion to approve the amendment was approved unanimously. Commissioner Schmidt noted if the County waits, then the District can come in and demand the attorney is added. Commissioner Schmidt asked if the County sets a precedent to rework any contract that comes before the Commission. Jay Fossum appeared before the Commission, 819 S. Cedar St. owner. He currently has taxes from 2007 through the current year and offered to make payments of $500 a month toward the outstanding balance of $5,682.16. The Commission approved the arrangement. The Commission heard from Nadolski in regard to Emil Klepel. I was afraid our arrangement would not be able to continue without account information,” Nadolksi told the Commission. The rent has been set at $55 monthly with the provisions that he put money into savings to cover the amount of taxes. Commissioner Long wanted to raise the rent by $20 a month, which Melcher agreed. “He’s a pillar of health, why is

The Commission approved a motion to approve the rent of $55 per month, to raise at the next meeting if Klepel did not show at the meeting.” Joe Jenkins came before the Commission and asked the Commission to approve education for the maintenance staff. “There is no cost, except the cost of travel, other than that there is basically no cost,” said Jenkins. Safety training also has another benefit of helping reduce insurance costs as the insurance company reviews the safety, according to Auditor Paula Feucht. The travel was approved. Jake Oakland appeared before the Commission with Nadolski. Oakland created a web page for human services, including information on the hours, contact information, etc. “I don’t necessarily know that it will make our work here any different than it is,” said Nadolski. The website has undergone some changes, but the new website is not completely finished. The website should be ready by the end of April. Jason Long, appeared before the Commission and said he is diligently seeking seat in house of representatives in District 6. He is looking to make “Lincoln County a great place to live.” Commissioner Schmidt told Commission members the total valuation of taxable property in Lincoln County is $3.9 billion, as a point of information.

Jim Bolin for Legislature Your Lincoln County Neighbor
Is your unit ready for summer? One of the most common checks home owners forget to do is have their air conditioners cleaned on a regular basis. The best time to get this done is right before summer. Your air conditioning unit can accumulate leaves, grass clippings and dust, this will steadily decrease the performance of your A/C and increase your cooling costs.
Call Justin at 605-310-6086 to have your A/C serviced today.
