Local Junior Achievement volunteer earns leadership award Tea Mayor receives Junior Achievement’s Elite Award for empowering students to own their economic success Junior Achievement of South Dakota announced that John Lawler, McGreevy & Associates, has been chosen to receive the organization’s award for volunteerism, the Bronze Leadership Award. The purpose of the Bronze Leadership Award is to recognize Junior Achievement volunteers who have performed outstanding service at all levels

within the organization. JA volunteers play a key role in bringing Junior Achievement to life. By sharing their personal and professional experiences and skills with students, volunteers help students make the connection between what they learn in school and what they will need to succeed in work and life. “John is a wonderful example of how one person can make a big difference in the lives of young people,” said Kayla Eitreim, president of Junior Achievement of South Dakota. Lawler has been on the Junior Achievement of Tea board for the past five years. He has taught JA programs in various grade levels and was instrumental in establishing Junior Achievement of Tea in 2008. “The local business community has been ex-

tremely supportive of Junior Achievement’s goal of inspiring local students to succeed in the global economy,” said Eitreim. “John Lawler is a great example of that spirit of generosity. In a very real way, John helps JA students develop financial literacy, entrepreneurship and work-readiness skills, contribute to the community and participate in the revitalization of the economy.” For information on how you can get involved and become a Junior Achievement volunteer, please contact Felan Ritze, Operations Director at (605) 336-7318.

Mayor John Lawler has been on the Junior Achievement of Tea board for the past five years.

Candidates from Tea come out on top in primary election Primary election results are in and the candidates from Tea came out on top to ensure themselves a place on the ballot in November. State Senator District 6 candidate Ernie Otten beat out opponent Gene Abdallah, 772 to 538 in the Republican Primary election held on Tuesday. Otten was the victor in every voter precinct. Otten will now face Democratic candidate Dick Gors in November. Gors is also from Tea. On the State Representative side, the Republicans from Tea again came out on top. Isaac Latterell was the top vote getter with 808 votes, followed by Herman Otten with 609. Both candidates will be on the November ballot, facing Democrats Joseph Weis, who is also from Tea, and Michael Jauron, from Sioux Falls. Losing the Republican primary District 6 Representative vote was June Nusz, of Harrisburg, who garnered 494 votes and Jason Long, of Sioux Falls, who received 380 votes. Other results of note in Lincoln County was the race for the Republican States Attorney candidate. Incumbent Tom Wollman beat out challenger Scott Carlson by a vote of 2050 to 983. For Republican County Coroner, John Anderson, of Canton, defeated Gale Horan, of Harrisburg, by a vote of 1682 to 491. Statewide, the Presidential Delegates and Alternates for Republican Mitt Romney easily won.

New Soccer Club sets future goals

Above: Cierra Stueven competes as a member of a Tempo team.

“We are here to provide soccer — when it's right for your family,” stated Tempo Soccer Club President Rob Hoffman. A local soccer enthusiast, Hoffman formed the club just last winter. Hoffman wanted to ensure that local children had an opportunity to participate in both competitive and developmental soccer programs, at an affordable rate. Hoffman gathered a board of nine to draft a philosophy and mission statement. The mission statement is concise. “It is the mission of Tempo Soccer Club to provide the opportunity to play soccer in a system that fosters growth at all levels. We shall conduct this in a positive environment that is honorable, purposeful, and devoted while maintaining a focus on the enjoyment of the game.”

From January to March, Tempo focused on their indoor training facility, located at 350 E. 1st St. The facility serves the club well, providing a heated space, covered with field turf, for children to train and play. When sign-up for the first Spring season was underway in March, Hoffman hoped to see 150 kids on the list. Instead, a surprising 320 children were ready to hit the field. The Spring season ran from April to mid-May. Children played their games on the 17.5 acres of land Tempo is currently leasing northeast of the high school, and west of the HighPointe Townhomes. Although it was only the club’s first season, it was remarkably successful. “Our 4-8 year old program was outstanding... We have many nationally

certified coaches, and they were able to provide a high level of soccer for the kids,” Hoffman added. Of those nationally certified coaches, all serve on a volunteer basis. Riccardo Tarabelsi is the Director of Coaching for Tempo. After playing college soccer, Tarabelsi became a soccer coach and earned 2009 Boys Coach of the Year from the Sioux Falls Soccer Association. Tarabelsi now coaches several of the teams for Tempo, as well. Despite the high level of training children receive, Tempo has been able to keep their costs low. Other area soccer clubs charge between $600-$700 for comparative play, while Tempo ranges from $45 to $75, depending on the program. ■ TEMPO SOCCER, page 2

Monday, June 4, the Tea City Council held the first of two monthly meetings. After approving the agenda, the Council unanimously approved the application for a temporary malt beverage license for lots 8-12, block 11 and Baker Tract 2, lots 8, 9, and 10, (Tea City Park) for Tea Pot Days on June 16. The Council also approved the renewal of malt beverage licenses for the Tea Pizza Ranch, Wood Ridge Casino, Get N Go and Cubby’s. Mark Reinders, franchise manager at Mid American Energy, spoke about renewing the franchise for natural gas with the City. The existing license expires in July and takes about two months to renew. The proposed duration for the new agreement is 25 years. The next step in the renewal process is to hold two public hearings; the first to be held at the Council’s June 18 meeting, the second at the July 2 meeting. District 6 State Representative Candidate June Nusz at-

tended the meeting and shared her political viewpoints with the Council. Nusz said that Tea is a “hot spot for growth” and is doing “an excellent job” of maintaining an identity separate from Sioux Falls. District 6 State Senate Candidate Gene Abdallah also attended the meeting and spoke to the Council about his campaign to return to the State Senate. He stated simply: “I run on my record; what I have done and what I intend to do.” Next, the Council approved the May 21 minutes and June warrants. The Council then discussed Phase 3 of the Athletic Complex. Mayor John Lawler met with Jon Jacobson from Confluence to discuss the ongoing plans for the Athletic Complex. Lawler would like to see a permanent bathroom and concession facility in place at the Complex. Discussion regarding this project is ongoing. The Farmers Co-op is requesting to extend their lease on the elevator property, if the City has no immediate need for the property. The Co-op would like

to lease the property from Aug. of this year to Sept. of 2013. The Council had no concerns with the request and is considering extending the lease indefinitely. The Council could then give the Co-op a six-month notice if they no longer want to lease the land. The Council approved payment to Double H Paving, Inc., in the amount of $251,876.32 for the 2012 Overlay Project for Brian St. and First St. The Council also discussed a reimbursement request from Friessen Construction. Due to the wet weather conditions during the HWY 111 project, Friessen was directed to dry the existing material from the 24'' sanitary sewer trench. They used an adjacent property owner’s land to complete this work. At the completion of the project, Friessen was obligated to restore vegetation to the property and is requesting $9023.43 to offset their incurred costs. An update on this issue will be provided at the next City Council meeting. Discussion of the 2011 Annual Report was tabled; it will be discussed at next week’s

meeting. The Council is requesting that all attendees of Tea Pot Days leave their coolers and outside beverages at home. There will be a beer garden available in the park. Under Committee Reports, Police Chief Brian Ketterhagen discussed purchasing speed signs that can be attached to poles to monitor drivers’ speeds. They can be moved easily to different intersections. Originally, Ketterhagen was researching speed trailers, but determined this would be a better option for the City. Ketterhagen is currently working on a grant to help fund the signs and will update the Council at the next meeting. Tea Economic Development Director, Jenni White, informed the Council that Mary Lee's Bakery and Daylight Donuts will be under new management. Tea resident, Aaron Spaan, will begin work at the bakery soon, and may change the name to Flyboy Donuts. The meeting adjourned at 8:47 p.m. The next meeting will be June 18 at 7 p.m.

TEA WEEKLY | PAGE 3 | JUNE 8, 2012

Quiet times, every now and then, in my ‘Krazy Life’ Tea Weekly celebrates two years in the community

Separating Church and State: Part 1, the Persecuted Faithful


his column is the first in a two-part series. Earlier this year, the South Dakota Supreme Court found itself stuck in the middle of a religious dispute. Two factions of a Hutterite colony disagreed about their community’s direction and could not resolve their differences. The dispute resulted in two Supreme Court opinions, the most recent of which is called Wipf v. Hutterville Hutterian Bretheren, Inc., 2012 S.D. 4. * * * I don’t pretend to know much about the Hutterite tradition. Thus, in order to do justice to a column about a Hutterite colony, I ambitiously checked out nine books from the library and skimmed about half of them at home. What I learned is that there is an awful lot to learn. I also won’t pretend that I can learn everything that needs to learned from a book. However, I will share what I found because it provides a magnificent background to the recent Supreme Court cases. What appears here today in this column is just a brief snapshot of the wealth of information out there. * * * Hutterites have a magnificent culture and religion with a long, proud history. Its followers have endured five centuries as permanent outsiders: persecuted, different, and seeking safety. The history of the Hutterites begins in Switzerland, at around the same time that a Catholic priest named Martin Luther began to question the Catholic Church in Wittenburg, Germany. It was the dawn of the Reformation: a time of religious questioning throughout Europe, where conventional wisdom was being tested in many ways. One group in particular questioned the practice of infant baptism, suggesting instead that it should be reserved for adults, upon a confession of

their faith. Its adherents were called Anabaptists. The name is a misnomer, which comes from the Greek word meaning “rebaptizers.” Early followers were “re-baptized” as symbolic of moving beyond their infant baptism, but its followers are generally baptized only once, as adults. The idea began to evolve and spread throughout southern Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and northern Italy. One feature shared in common by all Anabaptists was relentless persecution of their faithful. Followers of this brand of Christianity were considered heretics. An estimated 4,000 were martyred for their beliefs. As a result, the movement grew relatively slowly and almost entirely out of sight, in order to escape the disapproving eyes of the government and nosy neighbors. In addition, the movement evolved with very little centralized control (such as bishops). This resulted in a fragmented diversity of local practice and belief among the Anabaptists. Eventually, out of this potpourri would come the modern day Mennonites, Amish, and Hutterites. (And some historians also argue that the early Baptist religion was influenced by the Anabaptist movement.) In response to relentless persecution, many began seeking safety in friendlier parts of the world. A sizeable stream of immigrants headed to a promised land called Moravia. Moravia is a part of the modern-day Czech Republic, located near the line dividing Poland from Germany. At the time, Moravia was a very rich agricultural region that was missing one key ingredient: farmers. In response to this need, the government of Moravia opened its doors to all comers. It was so hungry for settlers that it refused to turn anyone away based on religious differences. ■ LESS LEGALESE, page 10

thought about giving up this gig. But, I keep writing for two reasons: One, I am humbled by those who’ve told me they look forward to reading the column each week. I mean really? My life is not all that interesting. Sure, my kids provide some pretty entertaining material at times… but don’t they all? And yes, I do hop up on the soapbox from time to time. But, really? Hey – if you’ll keep reading, I guess the least I can do is keep writing! And two, this column has become a cross between some much-needed therapy and a chronicle of our “krazy” lives – something I will one day proudly share with each of my children. They certainly deserve an organized booklet of these articles. I’m a little nervous about “gifting” them with my writings though. Something tells me they will be less than impressed about columns regarding my ill-fated potty training efforts with them or the column that detailed the three-ring circus that broke out when all three of them had the flu at the same time.

My life is pretty normal. At least, that’s what faithful readers tell me. They assure me they see themselves and their own lives in my writing. That – my friends, is SO rewarding since that has been my true intention with every written word. They tell me almost everything I have struggled with in terms of parenting, they too have or soon will struggle with. For that, I am thankful. Not that you’re struggling too, but that when I am admitted to the psychiatric ward, I might have some company!! Thanks for reading. Think of it this way – subscribing to the paper costs a lot less money than hiring a therapist! Quiet time is over. The kids are home! P.S. The mystery is solved! I guess it’s no surprise that neither Thad nor I remember buying the tent we’ll take out on our family camping adventure. That’s because we didn’t buy it. My mom read last week’s article and reminded us that they purchased the tent for us as a gift for Christmas. So, she was the one who knew we would need a tent large enough for a family of five!

but they usually don’t work that well in my book. Often your bike doesn’t fit right and sometimes the pieces are not secured and can move around. Then there is the support kit you will need to put together. Extra tubes, patches, a whole new tire (never know when you might stick a knife into it), Allen wrenches, a small pump, and small screw drive and pliers are not bad to have along. Mine kit has wire ties, chain lube and more, but then I have ridden long enough to know that the one thing I will need I did not bring. A good water bottle or Camel Pack for water is another must. You can never drink to much water when riding especially in the summer heat. Your muscles need the hydration. Along with water an assortment of energy bars are always nice to have and will help you maintain that energy level you need. Once we have our equipment in order it is time to address

our wardrobe. This can be tuff depending on where you are going. A good example is riding the Mickelson Trail in the Black Hills. If you are riding early in the morning a light jacket is often called for, yet by noon it is short sleeves and a sweat band. In one day of riding the Mickelson I have changed clothing configurations four or five times. So really think about where you will be riding and pack accordingly. A nice pair of padded bike shorts and a riding jersey although not mandatory will surely make your ride more pleasant. Oh and do not forget your helmet. So we have our bikes, we have our support kit and we have our wardrobe. I guess the only thing left to pack is our energy. Plan your rides so you can take some breaks along the way. Take some time to enjoy the scenery and the people you will meet along the way. Plan your ride to fit your abilities. Just enjoy.

immense amount of sugar in these products. I’m not trying to pick on Red Bull it’s just that it is one of the more popular. In an 8 ounce can of Red Bull there is 27 grams of sugar. In an 8 ounce serving of Rockstar there is 31 grams of sugar, however it comes in a 16 ounce can so if you drink the whole can you’re getting 62 grams of sugar. These sugar totals are off the charts. If you’re trying to lose weight and are drinking an energy drink prior to working out, you have to work out just to burn off all the calories you just drank. That high dose of sugar also puts a lot of stress on your pancreas to pump out insulin and lower your blood sugar, which if you’re already overweight and insulin resistant can contribute to you becoming diabetic. A study from the University of Miami just was released in which they reviewed the literature on energy drinks and their impact on children and found 121 references to energy drinks. What they found is that many children and

young adults have tried energy drinks and consume them heavily. 51% of college students regularly consumed one or more energy drink per month with a majority drinking them several times a week. The study also states that energy drinks are unregulated in the U.S. and there are reports from officials in Germany, Ireland, and New Zealand that associate cases of liver damage, kidney failure, seizures, confusion, and heart arrhythmias with excess intake of energy drinks. My advice to you is to avoid all types of energy drinks. Keep caffeinated beverages away from your children, and only allow yourself the occasional cup of coffee. By making a simple change and avoiding the excess caffeine, sugars, and herbal supplements that are associated with energy drinks, you can improve how healthy you and your children are.

My mother, Dorothy Hoffman, was raised in Tea in the now-grey house across the street north of Cubby’s. My father, Edward Jacobson, was raised on a farm four miles southwest of Tea. He moved to a Jacobson farm southeast of Tea in 1934. My parents married in 1938 and they lived there till 1945 when I was nearly six years old. When I was ten years old, I knew nearly everyone in Tea. We attended Trinity Lutheran Church in Tea. By June of 2002 our fledgling historical society had published the over-400-page “Time for Tea”. Many people worked hundreds of hours writing histories of organizations, churches, schools, families, individuals, and general memories. Hundreds of photos enhance the book. The book is still available. The city owns the museum and adjoining social hall. The

he Historical Society began doing the Ma and Pa TeaPot celebration in 2004, although the first Ma and Pa Teapot were George Snyder and Margaret Hoffman chosen in 1997. This is Ernie and Barb Otten riding in Ernie’s restored pick up. They were the first ones chosen under the direction of the Historical Society. The new Ma and Pa Teapot will be crowned on Thursday night, June 14, at 7 p.m.. Two reminders: have you voted for Ma and Pa TeaPot at either Sunshine or Pizza Ranch? Also, have you marked your calendar to enjoy an evening of entertainment at the Community Center on Thursday eve? The Historical Society also invite you to the pancake breakfast on Saturday morning June 16 and to buy chances on two denim quilts to be given away. The cost of tickets are $1 for 1 or 6 for $5.00

THANK YOU We would like to thank everyone who expressed sympathy with memorials, flowers and kind words as we experienced the loss of our mother, Frances Hilbrands. A special thank you to Pastor DeHoogh for his visits to the hospital and hospice; and for officiating at her service.

historical society has collected hundreds of items for the museum. We have done a good job of displaying and a fairly good job of labeling. We need to work on a cataloging system. As you read this, the society is preparing for its part in Teapot Days. We plan and carry out the selection of Pa and Ma Teapot, the crowning and program on Thursday June 14, and our pancake breakfast beginning Saturday morning at 7 a.m. Join us, as both events will be in the social hall adjacent to the museum. The museum will be open. Every Tuesday afternoon a group of senior citizens plays cards at 1 p.m. Come to play cards or to visit the museum. The historical society meets the second Thursday of each month except January and February. Watch for times in the paper. Join us anytime for a visit.

Thank you to Joel and Jay Klusmann who definitely made planning and carrying out the final arrangements so easy for us. We, also, thank the musicians for their parts in the service. And thanks to the ladies of Faith Pres. Church for serving the lunch. Coryel and Enno Otten

ello, Tea! My name is Erica Gaspar and I am the summer intern at Tea Weekly. I would love to meet you! Stop in at the office and say hi or email me at We’re always on the lookout for interesting people! If you are searching for a hidden gem in the restaurant world, Mama’s Ladas is the place. It’s my favorite place to eat when I’m in the mood for enchiladas and chips and salsa. Mama’s Ladas Enchilada Shop & Wine Bar is located in downtown Sioux Falls at 116 W. 11th Street. You may have a bit of a wait as other diners finish their meals and free up a seat for you—the place is small but cozy. I find


that a late lunch—anytime after 1:00—works best. The staff at Mama’s is warm and welcoming. The décor is very interesting. I always find something new to look at each time I stop in. My favorite dish is






a chicken half enchilada, which is a single enchilada, and comes covered with tomatoes, lettuce and sour cream. Chips and salsa come on the side. This meal is priced at $6, which I consider pretty affordable. If you want a


larger meal, the full enchilada is two enchiladas, chips and salsa for $12. I’ll warn you: if you don’t like spicy, stick with the chicken. The beef is good, but definitely spicy. The homemade salsa is smooth, but has a nice chunky consistency. It contains tomatoes, black olives, corn and mushrooms, among other ingredients. I liked it enough to take a batch home. The tortilla chips are nice and crispy and perfect for dipping into the salsa. A glass of Coke works fine for me, but Mama’s also offers a variety of wines and domestic and imported beers. Their full menu is available at Parking is fairly stress-free. Metered street parking is available in front of the restaurant, or there is a parking ramp about a block to the east.

Penn, preparing to become a teacher. His brother Zach has spent his life attending special schools. He’ll never drive a car, or kiss a girl, or live by himself. He is a savant, challenged by serious intellectual deficits but also blessed with rare talents: an astonishing memory, a dazzling knack for navigation, and a reflexive honesty that can make him both socially awkward and surprisingly wise. Buzz realized that while he had always been an attentive father, he didn’t really understand what it was like to be Zach. So one summer night Buzz and Zach hit the road to revisit all the places they have lived together during Zach’s twenty-four years. Zach revels in his memories, and Buzz hopes this journey into their shared past will bring them closer and reveal to him the mysterious workings of his son’s mind and heart. The trip also becomes Buzz’s personal journey, yielding revelations about his own parents, the price of ambition, and its effect on his twins. Release Date: May 15, 2012 Author: Buzz Bissinger

Summer athletic camps Volleyball Camp

New Soccer Club sets future goals ■ TEMPO SOCCER, from page 1

“We’ve had several parents comment that the level of developmental training we provide is better than anything they have seen...One of our goals is to provide a high level of education at a little cost,” commented Board treasurer Bob Lundin. Hoffman also pointed out that the flexibility of their club sets them apart. Hoffman keeps the line of communication open at all times, informing parents of tournament options and club happenings. “Parents have said transparency is

so very much appreciated within this organization,” Hoffman said. Parents are able to pick and choose which tournaments they want to send their children to and are encouraged to communicate any issues at any time. Moving forward, Tempo has big plans to continue to grow in the community. Their first major goal is finding a permanent outdoor facility to train and play their games. A soccer field is 2.2 acres, and the club would like to find land that is between 14-20 acres. Their second goal is to find a new indoor training facility. This summer will be busy for

Tempo. Summer Training will be held June 4-July 13 for children ages 7-16 and will cost $30. Several weekend tournaments will be held in Yankton, Mitchell, Norfolk and Brookings. Tempo is also partnering with several area colleges to host camps during the summer season. Children ages 4-6 can participate in Summer league play for $35. They will play weekdays and have a 20 minute clinic and a 20 minute game. To learn more about Tempo Soccer Club and all their summer and fall happenings, visit their website at www.

What’s happening at Newton Hills BY: BRITTANY KRENZ


Teapot Troopers enjoy busy months of events BY JACKI DEYOUNG


he last three months have been busy for the club. In March Alan Lambert talked to the group about hosting Japanese exchange students for 4 weeks over the summer. Two 4-H families chose to participate. The families that chose to participate are the DeYoung and Kuper families. Their students will be arriving July 22nd and will be leaving August 18th. A few Japanese students are still in need of host families. You don’t need to be a 4-H member to participate. If interested, please contact Alan Lambert at 605-366-6107 or email .

In April two families participated the Feeding South Dakota Food Program. Drew Plucker and leader Rhonda Dinnan, with her daughter Tori, helped box food that would be shipped to people in need across the state. At the May 14th meeting Madison Kunkle showed the group how to make a multiple picture frame. Taylor Kuper’s dad came to thank the group for the care packages we sent over Christmas to his troop in Afghanistan. He showed pictures of his experience. Now we are getting ready for the Japanese students to come. We are also busy getting ready for achievement days in August.

une is Great Outdoors Month in South Dakota so it’s a great time to check out the programs at Newton Hills!

From the archives...

Once a month, the Tea Weekly will be looking back through old issues of the Tea Spout to discover community happenings exactly 20 and 10 years ago. All articles featured were previously printed in the Tea Spout.

10 years ago: West Central bleacher removal completed

20 years ago: Celebrating 90 Years As the city of Tea looks forward to its 90th birthday celebration on July 11th and looks to the future with the promise of new homes in the two developments up to the north, new water lines, storm sewers, a new addition to our primary school, updates on our park and ball diamonds, housing for our elderly and maybe even natural gas. Hopefully this will be done with careful planning so that - even though we are only 5 miles from Sioux Falls - we retain our unique small town flavor that can only come from knowing and caring about our neighbors and our community. Before we look to the future - let’s take a look back. Mr. Bill Haggar, owner of the 1st St. Mall, did some research about seven or eight years ago and came up with some wonderful old photos that he is sharing with us. We will be having more of the pictures in the July issue - if anyone has any background information on the pictures - we would love to share it.

In May the city of Tea placed a bid of about $2,100 in an attempt to purchase West Central’s football bleachers. In mid May the bid was accepted and a group of volunteers went to work to dismantle the bleachers and bring them home to be used in the new Tea Area School District. The bleachers seat 1000 people and consisted of about 330 18 foot 2 x 10 planks and several hundred steel sections and cross pieces. On Thursday, May 23rd about 15 people gathered at the West Central athletic field to go to work. Comments were made like “it will take a month to take these apart.” Four afternoons later, over 3000 bolts were removed and all the planks and steel sections are stored neatly in Tea awaiting the proper place to reconstruct them. It was reported that West Central will spend about $200,000 to replace the bleachers with new ones. This project was just a kick off example of what determined, committed citizens of this community can do to provide all of the materials needed for this new district and still save our money to pay our teachers and administrators to provide the optimum education for our children.

Concession stands are available for local organizations for fund raisers. Contact the Tea Park & Rec at 605-498-5194 to see what nights are available.

Separating Church and State: Part 1, the Persecuted Faithful ■ LESS LEGALESE, from page 3

This was quite different than the rest of Europe, nearly all of which was governed by state-sanctioned religions. In Moravia, the idea of “freedom of religion” was gaining an initial foothold. At the same time those Anabaptists began flooding into Moravia, a few groups of its followers began banding together and living communally. These groups followed the leadership and teachings of Jacob Hutter, a hat-maker born in the Italian/Austrian Alps, and who learned his trade in Prague. Followers of the Hutterite way shared three beliefs: shared ownership of all worldly goods; nonviolence; and adult baptism. All of these principals find root in the New Testament, and many religions would later adopt one or more of them. However, living communally in groups was a unique way of life, and one that none of their neighbors practiced. This feature of their religion provided structure and continuity that was missing from the Anabaptist view. And it

would help propel the religion and culture for the next five centuries. The very nature of an inward-turned community made the colonies easier targets for persecution. As the empty Moravian farmland began to fill with outsiders, the colonies of Hutterites began to feel pressure. Soon, Moravia had plenty of settlers and could again be choosy about who it wanted living there. It took the Hutterites almost three-hundred years to find a permanent place to call home…which would be on the open prairies of modern day South Dakota. Next week’s column (part 2) will follow their journey to America, and then explain the recent court cases about a local Colony. The key legal principle in both opinions is the separation of church and state, which the government of Moravia and its Hutterite colonists briefly helped pioneer, five centuries ago. * * * Daniel K.

Only we can stop ourselves.” — Green Bay tight end Jermichael Finley on the Packers’ offense “In the 4 years I played for her, Pat Summitt taught me more about life than ball. That’s the difference between a good coach and a legend. I’ll never forget freshman year when Pat gave me the birds and the bees talk... lol. ‘Anosike...if you give him the milk he aint gon want the cow!’ - Pat Summitt” — Former Tennessee center Nicky Anosike via Twitter on the legendary coach Pat Summitt

“When she decided, that wasn’t too long ago, but we had to come up with the exact role of what she would do. There were a lot of discussions with a lot of people. Mom and I both know Holly (Warlick) will do a wonderful job (as Tennessee’s new coach). The biggest thing is Mom wanted to mentor the players off the court, because she believes succeeding in life is ultimately more important than the success on the court, and she felt this was what was best for the program.” — Pat Summitt’s son, Tyler Summitt, on his mother’s retirement . “It’s unbelievable. It’s crazy. It blows your mind. And the really crazy part is that it’s not like he’s really into it. He’s not pushing it. It’s not like his PR machine is trying to do this; it’s just that people gravitate toward him because he is such a good guy. He’s a great guy and they should gravitate to him. It’s a polarizing deal for a lot of people, but he’s not the one pushing it that way.” — New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez on the attention around new teammate Tim Tebow


82—Points the San Antonio Spurs scored in Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals in a loss to Oklahoma City. Only once this season had the Spurs been held to fewer points. That was in a loss at Minnesota in January. 20—Consecutive games won by the San Antonio Spurs, including 10 in the postseason prior to losing Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals. 24—RBIs by the Angels’ Albert Pujols in May. He drove in just four runs in April. 51—Hits in May by San Francisco outfielder Melky Cabrera, who batted .429 for the month. It must be a good time to be named Cabrera. Miguel of the Tigers led the American League with 41 hits. 0—Hits in 25 at-bats by Minnesota’s Danny Valencia. 21—Wins in May by the Miami Marlins, the most in the majors. 10—Teams in the AL East and NL East over .500 at the end of May. All five teams in each division ended the first two months with winning records.

June 3, 1998 In Game 1 of the NBA Finals, it appeared that the Utah Jazz might finally get the best of Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls. Utah’s John Stockton scored 24 and Karl Malone added 21 as the Jazz defeated the Bulls, 88-85, in overtime. The Bulls went on to win the series in six games.

June 4, 1972 It was a day of little offense in Major League Baseball. There were a record eight shutouts, five in the American League and three in the National League. The Oakland A’s blanked the Baltimore Orioles in both games of a doubleheader by 2-0 in both games. Two Hall of Famers threw complete game shutouts — Catfish Hunter won the first game against the Orioles, and Bob Gibson whitewashed the Dodgers. Three other hurlers — Houston’s Don Wilson, Detroit’s Tom Timmermann and Boston’s John Curtis — pitched complete game shutouts as well. As a side note, three other teams scored just one run.

June 8, 1955 The Brooklyn Dodgers sent 27-year-old lefthanded pitcher Tom Lasorda to the minor leagues to make room for a 19-year-old lefty with a live arm. Sandy Koufax joined the Dodgers that day. Lasorda was 0-0 with a 7.62 ERA in eight games (one start) over two seasons in Brooklyn. Koufax went on to be one of the greatest pitchers in baseball. Over his last five seasons (1962-66), Koufax was 111-34 with a 1.95 ERA, winning three Cy Young awards.

TEA WEEKLY | PAGE 14 | JUNE 8, 2012

Putting old shoes to good use Lincoln County Sheriff’s Log Did you finish your spring cleaning? Don’t know what to do with all of those shoes that are just too nice to throw away? The Faith In Action committee from Trinity Lutheran church is seeking any used shoes to donate to the Soles4Souls project. T h i s year Soles4Souls has set an ambitious goal: to process one million pairs of shoes at their Village Northwest Unlimited location. So, they thought they would give shoe donors some insight as to what happens to the shoes donated to the program. Upon receipt of your shoes they are processed and graded by the people they serve. To process them they need to be paired and banded together. Singles are placed into a separate box for future shipment. Paired shoes are then graded and placed into large shipping boxes. Grading is by “New”, “High Grade Used” and “Other” — meaning shoes like winter boots or lower grade used shoes. After a box is full, it is taped and placed into a storage trailer. When the storage trailer is full, Soles4Souls sends a semi truck to offload the shoes for shipment to their main distribution center in Roanoke, Alabama. From there new and high grade used shoes are immediately earmarked for distribution in the United States or abroad. Currently, Soles4Souls has distributed shoes in 125 countries. Lower grade used shoes are sorted and packed for distribution, and some are provided to micro-enterprise

programs in developing countries such as Haiti, Tanzania and Honduras. The microenterprise participants clean and recondition the shoes to sell locally, thus providing both a rare employment opportunity to impoverished people who would like to start their own shoe businesses but lack the capital to do so, and an affordable source of shoes for the impoverished l o c a l population. One of the rewarding attributes about the micro-enterprise program is that is provides a hand-up to individuals instead of a hand-out and makes someone self-sufficient. Shoes in very poor condition are unfit for the micro-enterprise programs and are sent to recyclers in Pakistan who salvage the usable materials from the shoes. Donated shoes to VNU also provide the people we serve with valuable work opportunities and give them the dignity of having a job and the reward of earning a paycheck. So, check in your closet, invite your company, school or church to host a shoe drive and help them meet their goal of processing one million pairs of shoes in 2012! The Faith in Action committee will be placing donation boxes in area businesses including Tea Sunshine, Valley Exchange Bank-Tea, Reliabank, Service First Credit Union, My Tea Tots, My Tea Tots Too and Tea Tots. The drive will be held Monday, June 25. If you have any questions about the drive, call Margaret Larsen at 368-2978.

Pastor Wayne Gallipo accepts his gear BY: ANGIE MUNCE, PR OFFICER


ince the very beginning of the organized fire service, most fire department staffs have included a chaplain. The most obvious role of a chaplain in the department is to provide spiritual guidance to the firefighters. In April of this year, Pastor Wayne Gallipo accepted the new position as the Tea Volunteer Fire Department Chaplain and on

Monday June 5th, 2012 he accepted his “gear” which included a helmet and a jacket. By accepting this role so graciously appreciated by the Tea Volunteer Fire Department, Pastor Wayne will also takes on roles which may include being called upon by the incident commander to perform certain duties in the midst of the crisis. This could involve informing citizens of the death of loved ones, performing religious rites as requested by

citizens, and possibly assisting with funeral arrangements. The chaplain’s most important duty is to help other firefighters deal with the tough calls. This may include teaching classes on how to cope with tragedy as well as meeting immediately with the firefighters after a difficult call. The Tea Volunteer Fire Department would like to thank Pastor Wayne from the bottom of their hearts for accepting this position.

Johnson staffer to hold outreach day in Lincoln County, June 12th U.S. Senator Tim Johnson (D-SD) announced today that Linda Robison of his Sioux Falls office will hold an Economic Development Outreach Day in Lincoln County on Tuesday, June 12, 2012.

Northern Plains Boxer Rescue (NPBR) will be hosting their 3rd annual Boxers and Bikers Poker Run on June 16 in Tea. NPBR is a nonprofit, all volunteer effort where every boxer counts. The organization strives to rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome all boxers in need. Local resident Bob Evans and his wife, Krista, are helping NPBR organize the poker run. The Evans family had one boxer, Miller, and decided to adopt another from NPBR, named Brinkly. “They are a great family dog and have high energy. I like to call them large lap dogs! They are very cuddly,” Bob stated. Boxers come to NPBR from shelters, as strays, from breeders, and from owners who, for various reasons, need to find their boxer a new home. They provide boxers with a loving home environment, all needed veterinary care (including spay/neuter), basic training, behavior assessment, and, most importantly, a forever home once carefully matched with an adoptive family. NPBR stresses that they are not a pet store. Their first priority is the boxers in their care. Many of their boxers come from less than ideal backgrounds. Their goal is to find the dog’s last and forever home. While they do take into consideration the preferences of every potential adopter, their priority is finding the best home for every boxer. If you would like to help NPBR, there are several options. NPBR is always in need of good foster homes. Foster homes

help boxers adjust and become prepared for a forever home. NPBR also needs dog beds, dog treats, high quality dog food, dog toys, collars, leashes, dog bowls, blankets and cash donations. If you are interested in volunteering or donating contact The Boxers and Bikers Poker Run will be held from 5:00 p.m6:00 p.m. on June 16. A poker run is an organized event where participants visit several check-

points, drawing a playing card at each one. The goal is to have the best poker hand at the end of the run. There will be prizes awarded to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place hands. Drivers can register for this event from 11 a.m.-1:00 p.m. at 795 E. Kevin Dr. on June 16. All proceeds from the Poker Run will go directly to NPBR. For more information go to or call 605-366-3105.

Ray and Sandy Cheney The town of Tea had a mere population of 286, everyone in town had a PO Box to receive their mail, there was one bank, one small grocery store, one gas station, and main street (from the Cenex station to the Legion Hall) was the only paved street. Ray and Sandy chose to buy their first home here. Like so many in the community, as we know it today, Ray and Sandy both grew up on farms in “small town” South Dakota and wanted to raise their family in a small town. Although the town has now become a city, there is still a real sense of friendliness, a sense of safety, commitment to education, arts, athletics, community involvement directed toward a multitude of interests, and vibrant churches. Their three children, Carrie Quamen, Amber Johnson, and Casey Cheney are grown and now have their own families. Ray and Sandy have no plans to leave the Tea community, with five of their seven grandchildren just minutes away. Ray, a graduate of Arlington High School, served in the Vietnam War and was employed by the US Postal Service for over 35 years, retiring in 2010. His

hobbies include: carpentry, plumbing, electrical and general “handyman” projects. His community involvement currently includes: American Legion member, congregation

Ray and Sandy Cheney member and congregation president of Trinity Lutheran Church. Previously he has been a member of the SD National Guard, the Tea Jaycees, church youth advisor, the Castlewood School Board, Lake Area Multi-School District Board, SD School District Association, Mailhandlers Association, Letter Carrier Association, the National League of Postmasters, the National Association of Postal Supervisors, the Tea Area School Board, and Sports Booster Organizations. He was actively involved in the creation of the Tea Area School District, serving on ad hoc

positions as well as physically helping to construct the stick buildings still in use today. Sandy, a graduate of Erwin High School, attended Augustana College and Mt. Marty College. Her working career includes service positions in telecommunication, dental care, banking, insurance, postal service, medical care, and church organization. She is currently involved as a congregation member and committee member at Trinity Lutheran Church, president of the Tea Area Community Fund Committee, and president of the Tea Area Community Scholarship Fund, funds of the Sioux Falls Area Community Fund, and a member of the Tea Area School District Association. Previously, she has been involved with Sunday School, Vacation Bible School, church youth advisor, Castlewood Art’s Council, and Music Booster Organizations. Sandy was also actively involved with the early days of the Tea Area School District. Ray and Sandy currently provide daycare for the “Tea” grandchildren and feel so blessed to observe their school, sports and musical involvement. Everyday is a memory

“After living in a larger town most of our married life we were unsure about living in a smaller community. Now we wonder why we didn’t make the move sooner. We love being part of the Tea community.” So says Connie Seim along with her husband Ron, candidates for Ma and Pa Teapot for 2012. Ron, who was born in Vienna, South Dakota, attended school in Vienna and Watertown and graduated from Northern State College. He then taught school in Aberdeen and Mission, South Dakota before joining State Farm Insurance for 33 years. Connie was born and raised in Rapid City and attended the National College of Business. Connie retired from working with the IRS in 2003 after 15 years. She and Ron will celebrate 50 years of marriage in 2013. Ron and Connie are the parents of three sons.

Ron was a former Weblos leader and Scoutmaster for the Boy Scouts and has one son that became an Eagle Scout. The couple joined Trinity Lutheran Church in 1993 and Ron has served on
