A Friendly Cow, Again By Daris Howard Justin, a young man who was a friend with our daughter, learned that we had a pond stocked with fish. In the fall, the water is cut out of the canal that feeds the pond, so we have to catch all the fish out of it. Justin asked if he could come help with that task. I told my daughter it would be fine, but he needed to call before he came. Justin had grown up in a city and knew nothing about farm animals. He had recently moved to our area. He’d never been fishing until he moved here, but the first time he did, he was hooked. He spent every minute he could at it, often heading out right after school each evening. One evening, when I arrived home, my wife informed me that Justin was coming. “When?” I asked. She shrugged. “This evening. For all I know, he could already be here.” “Oh, no,” I said. “I better get out there. I let Leah graze by the pond today.” When we bought our cow, Leah, the owner took me out to pick from three cows he was selling. One was mean, one only had three teats, and the third seemed perfect. He said her only problem was she was too friendly. I couldn’t understand how a cow could be too friendly, so I bought her. But I learned what he meant the first time she shoved me up against the barn wall because I forgot to pet her. Leah was a friendly cow, alright. But she didn’t just ask for attention, she demanded it. She especially liked her ears scratched. I considered changing my clothes before heading out to the pond, but decided that just in case Justin was already there, I’d better not. I rushed outside and looked toward the pond. Sure enough, I could see Justin’s car. As I neared the pond, I could hear screaming, so I quickened my pace. As I grew nearer, I could see Justin at a full run with Leah right behind him. Our pond is about forty yards in circumference, and they were running around it. They were coming at a fast clip and passed as I was approaching. I yelled for Justin to stop and scratch her ears. He either didn’t hear me, or in his panicked state, he didn’t trust what I was saying. They did another lap and passed me again before I could get through the fence. I ran after them, yelling for Justin to stop, but he didn’t. However, either my yelling distracted him or he was growing tired, but either way, he slowed, and Leah cut him off and cornered him against the fence. I ran toward them as Leah stepped closer and closer. Justin had his head turned from her and was trembling with fear, his eyes closed. Just before I reached them, Leah reached out her tongue and licked the side of Justin’s face. If you haven’t been licked by a cow and would like to know what it feels like, consider running as fast as you can toward a gravel road and jumping face first into it. That would be a similar sensation. A cow’s tongue is about as coarse as forty grit sandpaper, the roughest kind. When Leah licked Justin’s face, he screamed like he was being killed. It was about this time that I reached them. I started to scratch behind Leah’s ears, and she turned her attention to me. She leaned her head toward me so I could scratch the other ear. Justin still had his eyes closed, but finally, he opened them a little. When he saw me, he let out a big exhale of air as if he had been holding his breath. He gasped, “Your bull . . . Your bull was trying to kill me.” “First off,” I said, “she’s a cow, not a bull. And secondly, she only wanted her ears scratched.” I had him scratch Leah’s ears, and he did so with a trembling hand. Then I locked her in her pasture, because it’s hard to scratch a cow’s ears and fish at the same time. Dave Says Mortgage Ratios Dear Dave, of the year you’ll have made 13 payments instead of 12.

Mike Rounds Over the past three years, many of you have heard me talk about what we want our country to look like in 2026, the year we celebrate America’s 250th birthday. I’ve said time and again that we must get away from the centralized, overregulated system of government that has stifled economic growth. In the past year, we’ve made great strides in getting back on track to a freer, less intrusive government. Just before Christmas, President Trump signed historic tax relief legislation into law, the first major overhaul of our tax code in more than 30 years. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which takes effect immediately, will lead to more jobs and bigger paychecks for hardworking families. Additionally, lowering the corporate tax rate for American businesses will put them on a level playing field with the rest of the world, and allow them to be more competitive in the global marketplace, keeping jobs and income here at home. In 2017, we were also able to undo a number of burdensome federal regulations. We were able to undo 15 Obamaera regulations under the Congressional Review Act, saving taxpayers $36 billion and more than 4 million hours of paperwork. The Trump administration has also withdrawn or reconsidered close to 900 ineffective and duplicative regulations. Some of these regulations include the Waters of the U.S. (WOTUS) rule, the Clean Power Plan, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) power grab rule and retirement plan rules. Each of these ‘Washingtonknows-best’ rules would have led to more paperwork, more government intrusion and less freedom for the American people. In the Senate Banking Committee, we made progress this year on bipartisan legislation to provide relief to our financial institutions. Our bill, which includes six provisions I offered, will improve our nation’s financial regulatory framework by rolling back some of Dodd-Frank’s one-size-fits-all regulations. In doing so, our bill will help assure that South Dakota families and businesses have access to credit when they need it. This is critical as we work to grow a healthy American economy. Our armed forces also received a much-needed boost. After years of underfunding, our military received additional resources for the second year in a row, allowing our military leaders to take necessary steps to regain the required level of readiness. I’m also pleased to report that the National Defense Authorization Act, the annual bill that specifies where funds should be spent, included eight of my provisions that will help our armed forces accomplish their missions and take care of our troops and their families. With 2018 upon us, we are just eight years away from our 250th birthday. In 2017, we made significant steps toward a freer, less intrusive government that will help keep us safe and grow our economy. While we should be proud of the progress made, we will continue to work on the important issues that will shape our birthday celebration in 2026 and provide a stronger, healthier economy that we can pass onto future generations.
