Overhead power lines can be easily overlooked, and deadly if ignored. While you focus on putting those seeds in the ground, your local electric cooperative urges you to review these important tips. BE ALERT Awareness doesn’t spread as fast as an electrical current, but a little goes a long way. Remember to look up and look out for power lines this planting season. Follow these Four S’s to Stay Safe. STAY ALERT. Avoid distractions when operating farm equipment. While spring planting days can run long, failure to be aware of your surroundings can lead to power line contacts and other accidents. SLOW DOWN. Cold weather often delays spring planting in our region. If you get in the fields later than you had hoped, avoid the temptation to rush through your work. Slow down and stay safe. STUDY. Educate yourself on any new equipment you may have purchased recently. New equipment has higher antennas and attachments than ever before. What cleared power lines in previous years may not in your new ride. Know what you’re working with. SEARCH. Sometimes trees or brush can make power lines difficult to see. Don’t just glance up, really take a minute to search your surroundings when moving equipment. BE PREPARED Hitting a power line can be scary. In certain situations, there may be a lot of noise, which may spur your instinct to run. You’ve got seconds to understand what’s happening and respond appropriately. Do you know what to do if you come in contact with a power line? STAY PUT. Unless there is a fire, you need to stay calm and stay in the vehicle. Touching the ground and the vehicle at the same time (i.e. stepping out of the equipment) can be deadly. Don’t risk becoming a conduit for the electricity to move from the vehicle to the ground through you, stay put. Even if it’s Rapid City Soldiers Return From Romania, Bulgaria Deployment loud. CALL FOR HELP. Call for help from the vehicle if possible. 911 is a good place to start, especially if you don’t know your local electric cooperative’s number. If you don’t have your phone, try radioing for help. If someone comes to assist you, they need to stay at least 40 feet away from the vehicle until professional help has arrived. JUMP CLEAR. If there is a fire forcing you to leave, jump clear of the equipment. Jump with your feet together and with your arms folded over your chest, as far away from the vehicle as possible. Be sure that no part of your body touches the equipment and the ground at the same time. Then, shuffle (tiny, quick steps) or hop with your feet together at least 40 feet away. Electricity spreads through the ground in ripples. Keeping your feet together prevents one foot from stepping into a higher voltage zone than the other foot, which could cause electrocution. Stay away from the equipment and keep others away until the authorities tell you it’s safe to return. To The Classes Of 2018 By Gov. Dennis Daugaard Congratulations to the classes of 2018! To all high school, college and technical school students graduating in South Dakota, I commend you for reaching this milestone. After years of studying, taking tests and writing essays, you’ve finally made it. Congratulations on all you have achieved! Most of you probably already have a good idea of what you’ll be doing next – what additional education you’ll seek or what career you’ll pursue. Whether you’ve decided to stay in South Dakota or pursue a career or education elsewhere, I hope you’ll ultimately consider a future here in our state. There are a number of reasons to consider living and working here. First, the tax burden in South Dakota is low. We are among only a few states without an income tax, meaning you can keep more of the money you earn – money that can repay student debt, buy a house someday or replace that car you drove into the ground in school. Second, not only do people keep more of the money they earn in South Dakota, but that money will buy more here than in other places. We don’t spend as much money on housing, insurance, food and the other everyday needs. In fact, we have some of the lowest costs in the nation. In California, New York, Washington, D.C., or many other places, you will find costs that are 13 percent, 15 percent, even 17 percent higher than the national average. In South Dakota our costs are 12 percent lower than the national average. Now some people will say, “South Dakota may have a low tax burden and low cost of living, but I won’t get paid as much if I live there.” Actually when it comes to per capita personal income, we fare pretty well. Nationally, we rank in the top half. And, if you adjust the per capita personal income to add cost of living and taxes, we rank sixth in the nation. Beyond the financial reasons, South Dakota is a great place to live because we have a good quality of life here. Our communities are safe, our public schools are high-quality and our people are friendly. We also have clean air, clean water and beautiful scenery. More than anything, though, there are people here who love you. You can’t put a price tag on the love and support of your family and friends, here in South Dakota. At the end of your careers, and even at the end of your days on earth, the people who love you will be thousands of times more important than anything else in this world. My hope is not that you willto Call 665-5884 never venture outside of our state, place your ad here. but rather that you would consider a more permanent future in South Dakota. Your dreams can come true – right here at home.

RAPID CITY, S.D. - Three Soldiers with the South Dakota Army National Guard's 216th Engineer Detachment (Firefighting Team) were welcomed home by family and friends in Rapid City, May 16, after returning from duty in Romania and Bulgaria. The Rapid City-based unit served nine months providing command and control of firefighting teams to provide fire protection of aviation assets, facilities and installations in the European Command area of operation. This included firefighter support to Mihail Kogalniceanu, Romania, and Nevo Solo Training Area, Bulgaria, and being utilized as emergency first responders providing firefighter services to both structural base assets and aircraft and runway support. "The mission was a complete success," said Capt. Jared Bloomgren, 216th commander. "We set the new standard at both M.K. Air Base, Romania, and at NSTA, Bulgaria. We were praised for our work, our fast responses, lifesaving techniques, our professionalism, and our willingness to make both bases a safer and better place." Bloomgren, who led five firefighting teams from five other U.S. states, thanked South Dakota senior leaders and various commands for the support provided throughout the deployment. He then turned his attention and appreciation to the South Dakota Soldiers joining him - Sgt. 1st Class Austin Hagen, fire chief, and Staff Sgt. Robert Robertson, fire inspector. "You two did a superb job on this deployment," Bloomgren said to his team during the ceremony. "If it wasn't for you, we would not have had the success we did on this deployment." State and local government leaders to include Lt. Gov. Matt Michels and Maj. Gen. Tim Reisch, SDNG adjutant general, also spoke to the 216th and their family members during the ceremony. After thanking Bloomgren, Hagen and Robertson, Michels asked, by a show of hands how many in the audience had a dad who had been gone over the last ten months - and then spoke directly to the Soldiers' young children and other family members in attendance. "I want to thank you for sharing dad," Michels said. "It's very, very hard. And a number of us know how thankful we are for you, and mom, and for helping mom. It's incredibly important, what you did, and all I'm asking is that you love them up a lot because they've missed you so much. The Soldiers returned stateside to Fort Bliss, Texas, May 6, where they completed demobilization requirements before to returning back to South Dakota.
