Broadcaster Press 05 July 2, 2013 www.broadcasteronline.com Clay County Farmers Union camp is July 12 fuel, food, electricity, telecommunications and other services,” said Bonnie Geyer, state education director. “We hope young people will attend the camp to learn many important lessons and life skills that they can apply to their own lives. They’ll learn about teamwork, agriculture, leadership and other skills while having fun in a safe and friendly environment.” Campers will participate in cooperative games and hands-on team building activities including a human board game to teach young people about Farmers Union, cooperatives and financial literacy where they will test their financial knowledge. The young people will also do a craft project where they will decorate their own wooden bank to promote saving money. All campers will receive a free T-shirt and snack. Campers will walk away with wonderful memories and a greater understanding of the importance of cooperation. Registration forms can be found online at www.sdfu.org. You can also pick them up at your local Farmers Union Insurance office, or your local cooperative. For more information contact Farmers Union State Education Director Bonnie Geyer at (605) 352-6761 ext. 125 or email her at bgeyer@sdfu.org For decades, cooperative businesses have had a dramatic impact on the South Dakota economy and the well-being of our rural communities. That’s why Farmers Union organizations from across the state host annual day camps for children to learn about cooperative business and the important role they play in South Dakota. This year’s theme, “Farmers Union is our name, cooperation is our game,” shows the emphasis the family farm organization places on working together toward a common goal. All children ages 6-13 are invited to attend the Clay County Farmers Union day camp scheduled Friday, July 12, at Prentis Park in Vermillion, to learn about cooperation and other topics like financial literacy, agriculture and leadership. This year’s camp will include a number of activities for young people. The registration fee will be $5 for nonFarmers Union members and free for members. Registration will begin at 9:30 a.m. with camp from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. There will be swimming and campers are asked to bring suit, towel, $4 or pool pass, and sturdy shoes for other activities. Campers are also asked to bring a sack lunch. “Many of our rural communities in South Dakota rely on cooperative business for Asphalt surface treatments underway in region The South Dakota Department of Transportation advises motorists that asphalt surface treatments and placement of permanent pavement markings are scheduled to begin on highways in Charles Mix, Clay and Yankton counties this week.

The National Fire Protection Association says recent statistics show that nationally in 2010 fireworks caused an estimated 1,100 structure fires, 300 vehicle fires and 14,100 outside and other fires with eight civilian deaths and $36 million in property damage. The risk of fireworks injury was highest for children age 514, the association said. Merriman offered a few simple safety tips: Follow the instructions on the product, avoid using fireworks in places where a fire could start and keep a source of water handy. Sparklers are popular with younger children, but they can cause painful burns and should be used with adult supervision, Merriman said.

Legal sale of fireworks in South Dakota begins on Thursday, June 27, and Fire Marshal Paul Merriman is urging residents to be safe and sensible as they celebrate Independence Day. “Fireworks have long been a traditional part of the Fourth of July celebration in South Dakota, but every year we have a few injuries and some unintentional fires,’’ Merriman said. “While much of the state has experienced much-needed moisture in recent months, we still caution anyone using fireworks to cooperate in keeping us all safe and fire-free. Common sense goes a long way.’’ The 2013 South Dakota Legislature changed state law to allow the discharge of fireworks from June 27 until the Sunday after July 4. This year, that means it’s legal to discharge fireworks through Sunday, July 7. Previously, July 5 was the legal end date for use of fireworks in the state. Individual cities may adopt stricter limits on use of fireworks, and Merriman suggests citizens check local ordinances and regulations. www.plaintalk.net Introducing the NEW NAPA Radiator Program • Great Parts • Great Warranty Cox Auto Fire marshal urges Fourth of July fireworks safety B UY NOW AU CTIO N EVERY TU ES DAY * Bidding begins at 50% off the retail value * Save thousands on new merchandise from area businesses * See items at kvht.com Tune In To Cl c H i 106. and assi ts 3 ESPN Radi 1570 Every Tuesday from 2-6 PM o ForThe Sum m erRadi Aucti Seri o on es Wednesday, July 10th - 6PM Vermillion IOOF #3 offers at auction the former CENTERVILLE #97 ODD FELLOWS LODGE & BARE LOTS Located: 301 Lincoln Street, Centerville, SD OPEN HOUSE: Thursday June 27th 6-7PM OPTION 1: This lodge has a large open area on the main floor, with hardwood floors.
