John Thune In politics, a lot of the attention is often on Washington, D.C., but as your U.S. senator, I’ve always believed that some of my most important work happens when I’m home in South Dakota with you. And while I’m fortunate to have the most talented and dedicated public servants that exist working in my South Dakota and Washington offices, there’s no advisor’s opinion that I value more than yours. It’s why after a long week in Washington, I’m always eager to get home and hit the road. Along the way, I really enjoy meeting new people and seeing old friends. It keeps me energized and focused on my top priority, which is delivering for the people of South Dakota. On a recent trip around the state, I attended Memorial Day services at the Black Hills National Cemetery (BHNC) near Sturgis. Being there, surrounded by America’s war heroes, gave greater context to what it means to serve and sacrifice. These men and women deserve a place like the BHNC, and by recently sending a bill to the president that will nearly double the cemetery’s size, I was glad to have played a small role in ensuring its legacy will live on for generations to come. While I was home, I also had the chance to connect with the Aberdeen Chamber of Commerce’s Agribusiness Committee to discuss the farm bill. The current bill expires this fall, and it’s one of my top priorities to see that a pro-agriculture farm bill lands on the president’s desk as soon as possible. I’ve introduced nearly a dozen farm bill-related bills over the last 15 months, and I’m working hard to ensure as many of them as possible are included in the final bill. I wouldn’t miss the opportunity to stop by the annual Boys State and Girls State programs in Aberdeen and Vermillion, which is why I was glad to have been invited to attend again this year. It’s so refreshing to see the next generation of leaders hard at work, eager to learn and lay the groundwork for their future. I can say with confidence, the future of South Dakota is bright, and it’s in good hands. It’s always nice to see firsthand the positive effect that policies coming out of Washington have on South Dakotans. For example, Elk Point’s AaLadin Industries, which I recently had the opportunity to visit, is passing along expanded benefits, including bonuses and wage increases, to its employees as a result of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which I helped write. More than 1 million jobs have already been created nationwide in the few short months since this new pro-growth bill became law, a milestone that delivers on a promise Republicans made to the American people. I closed out my latest trip around South Dakota with Commissioner Brendan Carr of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). He joined me for the ribbon cutting at the new Sioux Falls Tower and Communications office. I appreciate the work Commissioner Carr does at the FCC, under which the Commerce Committee – the committee I chair in Washington – has jurisdiction. The FCC will play a large role in implementing my MOBILE NOW Act, which was signed into law in March 2018 and will help set the stage for the next generation in mobile broadband technology. To everyone throughout the state who continues to share their advice and ideas with me, I can’t say this enough: Thank you. I couldn’t do my job without you, and I’m continually humbled by your kindness, generosity, and hard work. There’s no question that South Dakota is the best place to live, work, and raise a family, and I’ve never been more certain of it. Find BIG Savings... When You Place Your Ad In The Classifieds! SDDA Reminds Producers Of Dicamba Label Instructions PIERRE, S.D. – Throughout the spring season, the South Dakota Department of Agriculture (SDDA) reminds farmers to read and follow all label instructions when applying agricultural products, including dicamba products. The SDDA is using the federal label for use in the state for Engenia, Fexapan and Xtendimax with Vapor Grip technology herbicides. Per the label, these products are restricted use products, meaning the applicator must be a certified private or commercial applicator to purchase and apply the products. All persons applying the products must also complete a dicambaspecific training and examination. Documentation of completion of the training and examination will be required to purchase these products. “We appreciate the effort that producers and applicators put forth to keep up with label requirements,” said secretary of agriculture, Mike Jaspers. “As a producer myself, I understand the time and energy that farmers put into their crop each season and realize the importance of having a productive growing season, while being responsible stewards and good neighbors.” As with all products registered by the department, applicators are required to read and follow the label prior to and during application. The application of Engenia, Fexapan, and Xtendimax must be completed between sunrise and sunset when wind speeds are from 3-10 mph at boom height. Applications can occur until the R1 growth stage of the soybean crop, also known as beginning bloom. Applicators are required to maintain records of each application; records are required to be completed at the end of each day of application. Tank mix information must be printed and stapled to the spray record to verify the applicator referenced the website no more than seven days prior to application. The labeled tank mix information and allowable nozzles are available on the manufactures’ websites. More information on dicamba products and label requirements can be found on the SDDA’s website: sdda.sd.gov, by clicking on the Dicamba Information link under the Happening Now section. Agriculture is a major contributor to South Dakota’s economy, generating $25.6 billion in annual economic activity and employing over 115,000 South Dakotans. The South Dakota Department of Agriculture's mission is to promote, protect and preserve South Dakota agriculture for today and tomorrow.

The person is in the 30 to 39 age group. “This individual was not ill but was detected through the routine screening of blood donations that takes place to make sure the blood supply is safe,” said Dr. Joshua Clayton, State Epidemiologist for the department. “It’s a clear indication that mosquito-to-human WNV transmission is taking place and people need to protect themselves.” Clayton said South Dakota has a disproportionately high number of WNV cases compared to other states and he encouraged residents to reduce their risk by taking the following actions: • Apply mosquito repellents (DEET, picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus, paramenthane-diol, 2-undecanone or IR3535) to clothes and exposed skin. • Reduce mosquito expoReal Estate sells at 11 a.m. sure by wearing pants and LOCATED: 809 Elm Street, Spring?eld, SD long sleeves when outdoors. • Limit time outdoors from 1 block west of Wagon Wheel Motel dusk to dawn when Culex mosReal Estate consists of a 72x88 lot with an older structure which quitoes, the primary carrier with some restoration could be used for weekend living quarters of WNV in South Dakota, are for hunters, ?sherman, ect or a rental property. most active.
