“Court upholds HOS Rule” Well, probably not a big surprise to anyone. The new HOS rule that took effect on July 1 is most likely here to stay. The ruling focuses mostly on the 34-hour restart with the 1-5 AM provision as well as the 30-minute break. Fortunately the special interest groups were not able to sway the court to reduce the driving day from 11 hours to 10 hours. At least one “win” in our column. Now on to more important matters, hauling horses in double decker trailers. Seriously, don’t these people have more important things to do with their time? “It also puts motorists lives at risk,” per Senator Kirk. Puts motorists lives at risk? Those types of comments appear to be a weakly veiled attempt to sensationalize the need for a regulation that is misplaced at best. Per comments noted about this effort, “the next thing they will try to regulate is hauling cattle in double-deck trailers.” I can’t help but think that speculation probably has some merit. These types of efforts only reinforce the need for a collective voice through SDTA and ATA as we attempt to keep fringe groups from their misguided efforts to pass laws on an industry they don’t even understand. Time to get off my soap box and start making plans for our upcoming annual convention. We are only a few weeks away so the event will be here before we know it. I am sure the SDTA staff is already very busy making the final plans. The annual convention is easily one of our highlights for the year and I hope everyone can attend. We have some great keynote speakers that you won’t want to miss along with some breakout sessions and I am sure the SDTA office has some enjoyable entertainment lined up as well. It is a great time to mix with our associate members at their booths (and don’t forget to thank them for their sponsorships) and to socialize with all our regular members as well. One of the highlights for me is to see the welldeserved awards being handed out to everyone for their efforts through the year. There are lots of opportunities for everyone so mark your calendars now and we will plan to see you at the 78th Annual Convention!

The SDTA Annual Convention is just around the corner. We are scheduled for September 4th through the 6th (Thursday through Friday) at the Sheraton Hotel and Sioux Falls Convention Center in Sioux Falls. If you have not yet registered for the convention, please do that as soon as you can. We have a great list of speakers and seminars including a Capitol Hill update from the American Trucking Associations Senior Vice President for Legislative Affairs, Ms. Mary Phillips. Seminars include the “Top Ten Legal Issues for Carriers in 2013” and “Facts for Addressing Energy Policy.” Attendees will also have access to a seminar entitled, “What can SDTA do for you?” All of these sessions are a “must see.” All education opportunities offered at the convention are opportunities that members cannot get anywhere else but at the SDTA Annual Convention. In addition to educational opportunities, the convention also provides a special time and venue to network with others in the trucking industry that face issues similar to the ones you face. We also leave time for attendees to have some fun through entertainment and our golf outing. South Dakota recently made national news with stories highlighting our quality of life, excellent business climate and the research breakthroughs taking place here. Our diverse economy is perhaps one of the reasons why South Dakota was rated the number 1 place to do business. In addition we ranked number 6 for our economy, number 7 for quality of life and number 2 for business friendliness. As South Dakotans, we always knew these things but it is sure nice to read about it and be recognized. I hope that all CDL holders have submitted their DOT physical information to the Department of Public Safety’s Division of Driver Licensing. I was recently informed that the state has started suspending the licenses of drivers that failed to submit their DOT physical information to the Division. Remember, they will accept your information sent by snail mail, email, fax or any other means just so they get the information and it is updated each and every time your DOT physical is updated. In the July edition of the Trucking News, both Chairperson Hoogendoorn and I indicated our desire to set a new membership record before the end of this year. Our desire is to get the total membership to 600; as of this printing, we are at 581 members. Let’s all reach out to a potential member and make our goal! After you review the entire agenda as it appears in this edition of the Trucking News, I am sure you will find that the 2013 Convention is a “must attend.” I look forward to seeing many of you at the convention in Sioux Falls. Stay safe! Until next month...

UPDATE FROM THE BLACK HILLS LOG HAULERS ASSOCIATION From the Desk of Robert Christian Black Hills Log Haulers Association It has been a long time since my

haul route has taken me through the higher country with the beautiful meadows and farm ground, right by Devils Tower to Sundance, WY. That trip has been even more enjoyable this year with all the rain. It is nice to look out and see every-

thing so lush and green even as we approach the end of August. I can’t remember the last time I had to run through the Sundance Port but I do know that Eleanor was still in charge. I don’t know how long it has been since she retired. On my first trip into the port I had every intention to thank the port personnel for attending our log haulers seminar in April, but as I walked into the door I was thanked by them for the opportunity to do this talk with us. Although their presentation was not something they had done in the past and although there was a bit of red tape to go through, they really look forward to doing it again sometime. I think we have always had a good working relationship with the port personnel but I get the feeling their appearance at our spring seminar has even improved our relationship. I hope everyone else is having the same experience. I know they were quick to share the information on how good everyone has been with weights and permits. It is always nice to hear positive rather than the usual negative comments, especially from the government. Myron had a meeting with Dan Buehler on August 14th. During that meeting, he delivered the 2011 and 2012 survey results. It is my understanding from Myron is that these meetings get more friendly and productive with each visit. I always hope we will get invited in to discuss and defend these numbers. I know from the 2010 survey two variables that were never factored in before were health insurance and retirement and that was part of the last increase in our cost per hour. We can only hope if you have never afforded yourself these benefits before that you have now. Jim Neiman has suggested working on some programs to help with our costs. Fuel prices are hard to negotiate since we are so wide spread and have to fuel at so many different locations. CBH Cooperative has set up a Black Hills Log Haulers price list for lubricants so I hope we take advantage of this as much as we can. Phillip Christian and Rick Underwood of Dales Tire have also worked to set up a program with Michelin tire which enables us to buy Michelin tires at fleet prices. Both of these are great programs and should be helpful if we can take advantage of them. If anyone has or is willing to help set up some additional cost saving programs; please try to get them implemented. The Black Hills Log Haulers Association sent out information packets and I hope every member has received one. If not, please let us know and we will get one sent to you. Also, if you have any questions, suggestions or comments, please contact one of your elected officers. We will probably be scheduling a log haulers meeting sometime this fall, so please watch for that information. Robert Christian, President of the Black Hills Log Haulers Association 7

IMPROVING THE HUMAN CONDITION

Grabbing Meals on the Road: A Healthy Approach By Margaret Kuiper, RD, registered dietitian, and Chef Kristin Laberis from the Sanford Center for Health and Well-being.

When you drive a truck, it’s pretty clear what you need to do to refuel your equipment. Stopping to fill your tank is a necessity when the fuel gauge is getting low. But refueling your body during those long drives can be a little more complicated. Life on the road may sometimes limit your meal choices and dictate the times when you can eat. However, with a little preparation and good information, you can also make the choices you need to fuel your body in a healthy way. Eat the right way Follow healthy eating guidelines wherever you happen to catch your meals. • Slow down. Make sure your meal takes you at least 20 minutes to finish. • Think about portion size. At any one meal, your protein should be no larger than the size of your palm. Limit bread to one or two pieces; pasta, rice or potatoes shouldn’t cover more than one-fourth of your plate. • Balance your day. Try to have one serving of fruit and one of vegetable at both lunch and dinner. Aim for two servings of dairy a day, and keep a balance of carbohydrates and protein at each meal. Pack your own Since you never know what you’ll encounter when you stop to eat, a well-stocked truck fridge can make life easier and healthier. Having things ready that are portable, already prepared, and healthy will save you time and be better for you. Some good choices include: • Cut up fruits and veggies • Yogurt • Low- fat cheeses, such as Laughing Cow or Babybel light cheese snacks • Salsa or hummus • Whole grain breads, pitas or tortillas • Deli sliced turkey, ham or roast beef • Natural peanut butter • Meal replacement shakes, such as Special K or Carnation Instant Breakfast • Whole-wheat baked crackers or chips • Dried fruits and nuts • Granola or protein bars Drink smart Think about what you grab to drink when you’re on the road. Choose beverages that will hydrate you without adding unnecessary calories to your diet. (Continued on page 13)

IMPROVING THE HUMAN CONDITION

Grabbing Meals on the Road: A Healthy Approach -- continued Limit juice to less than eight ounces a day, and make sure it’s 100 percent juice, not sweetened with additional sugars. If drinking vegetable juice, opt for the lower sodium varieties. Alcohol adds up. You should limit yourself to one or two servings per day on your days off. A serving is four ounces of wine, 12 ounces of beer, or one and a half ounces of liquor. You can switch to diet soda, but limit your number of servings. You also should watch your caffeine intake. Try to choose caffeine-free drinks later in the day. If you need to grab something quick, look for: • Bottled water or calorie-free flavored water • Unsweetened tea • Coffee or hot tea with skim milk or one-percent milk • Sugar-free or zero-calorie sports and energy drinks Eating out When you have to eat at a restaurant, make good choices. Take a little extra time and think about what you pick off the menu. • Ask how foods are prepared, and request sauces, butter or salad dressing on the side. • Choose menu items that use the words “fresh,” “grilled,” or “steamed.” Look for “whole grain” instead of “fried” or “cheesy.” • Go for the salad bar and opt for leafy greens, raw vegetables and fresh fruit topped with a reduced fat dressing or vinaigrette. • Substitute a side of fries for vegetables or a salad. • Instead of a creamy soup, go for the brothbased soups or chili. • Take some on the road. Ask for a to-go box to keep your portions small. Move a little Take every opportunity you can to stay active during your breaks and on the road. Walk around the truck, adding in lunges, squats and pushups. You can even work your core muscles by doing exercises to pull in your stomach while driving. Staying healthy on the road is possible and definitely worth the effort. By making good choices, you’ll keep yourself trucking down the road for years to come.

FMCSA Clarifies That Both Types of Short Haul Drivers Are Not Subject To Rest Break Requirement Following an ATA meeting with Administrator Ferro yesterday, August 6th, FMCSA this morning released a new enforcement policy clarifying that, effective August 2, the hours of service 30-minute rest break requirement does NOT apply to either of the two categories of short haul drivers (see 49 CFR Sections 395.1(e)(1) and (e)(2)). The recent U.S. Court of Appeals decision which vacated the rest break requirements for short-haul drivers created some confusion by only speaking specifically to one of the two categories of short haul drivers – non-CDL holders who operate within a 150 mile radius of their work reporting location. FMCSA’s new enforcement policy states that the Agency and its state enforcement partners will immediately cease enforcement of the 30-minute rest break provision of the HOS rule against all short-haul operations. This includes the aforementioned non-CDL holders using the exemption under 395.1(e)(2) AND drivers of any CMV (both CDL and non-CDL) operating within a 100 air-mile radius and using the exemption under or 395.1(e)(1). Also, FMCSA will also be initiating a rulemaking to include text in the HOS regulations specifically noting that the 30 minute break provisions do not apply to short haul drivers.
