2 Broadcaster Press May 15, 2018 www.broadcasteronline.com A Mother Teaching Responsibility Dave Says By Daris Howard Help Them Help Themselves Dear Dave, My parents have always been bad with money, and recently they lost their home to foreclosure. They found another place to live, and they both work, but since the foreclosure my dad has been asking me for money on a regular basis. He tries to make me feel guilty, and he calls or asks me to come over to talk about it when my mom isn’t home. He even asked for half of the bonus I received at work the other day. I know they need help, but I’m not sure what to do. Eli Second, understand there’s nothing wrong with helping your folks get back on their feet. However, any financial help you give them should be temporary in nature, and it should be a gift. Don’t get involved in giving them money every month just because they raised you. That’s not how this works. When you permanently subsidize someone, you take away their dignity. You also change their status, and compromise their ability to stand on their own two feet. In return, you should let them know you expect them to work toward changing their financial behaviors with the help of a quality financial counselor — one with the heart of a teacher. It’s often difficult for parents to accept advice and suggestions from their own children, but it’s for their own good. Sit down with them, and gently let them know how much you care, and how much you want better, happier lives for them. God bless you all, Eli. — Dave Dear Eli, I can tell you love your parents, because you’re looking for the best way to help them. I think your brain knows what to do, but your heart is having a hard time doing it. The first thing you’re going to have to accept is your father is being very manipulative right now. Put an end to these private meetings and phone calls once and for all. If he wants to talk, make sure he understands it will only happen with your mom in the room. * Dave Ramsey is America’s trusted voice on money and business, and CEO of Ramsey Solutions.

Emerald Ash Borer Confirmed In South Dakota PIERRE, S.D. – The South Dakota Department of Agriculture (SDDA) has confirmed that an infestation of emerald ash borer (EAB) has been discovered in northern Sioux Falls. This is the first confirmed infestation in South Dakota. Emerald ash borer is an invasive insect that has killed tens of millions of ash trees in at least 32 states. On May 9, 2018, Secretary Mike Jaspers implemented an Emergency Plant Pest Quarantine in order to prevent or reduce the spread of the EAB. This emergency quarantine is effective immediately. The quarantine restricts the movement of ash materials in all of Minnehaha County, in areas north of Highway 18 in Lincoln County and north of Highway 18 and east of Highway 19 in Turner County, unless accompanied by the appropriate authorization from the SDDA. These regulated ash materials include: ash nursery stock; ash logs, lumber, wood chips or mulch, including trimmed ash tree branches; and pallets made out of ash. Movement of firewood from any hardwood species, whether intended for commercial or private use, is also restricted within the quarantine area. Ash trees within the quarantine area should not be pruned or removed unless absolutely necessary until after Labor Day to prevent spread of EAB. As a precautionary measure, people with ash trees in good condition within the quarantine area who want to save those trees should consider treating them now. Treatment information, as well as more information on EAB and response efforts, can be found by visiting emeraldashborerinsouthdakota.sd.gov the SDDA’s dedicated EAB webpage. The SDDA is hosting EAB information forums on Thursday, May 10, Broad casteronline .com at 6:30 p.m. and Saturday, May 12 at 1 p.m. at the Game, Fish and Parks Outdoor Campus located at 4500 South Oxbow Avenue in Sioux Falls. These forums will provide important information for residents in the quarantine area on EAB and current efforts to limit its spread. Dr. John Ball, Forest Health Specialist for the SDDA and SDSU Extension Forester, as well as officials from the SDDA and the City of Sioux Falls, will present information and answer questions. 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.

Adam, a native of Pierre, graduated last Saturday from the University of South Dakota with a bachelor of business administration degree in finance and a minor in accounting. He plans to work as an analyst for the foundations and endowments team at Abbot Downing, a financial services firm in Minneapolis. “While a student regent in large part is appointed to represent the interests of collegegoing students at our public universities, Regent Adam was more than that,” said Regents President Bob Sutton. “He became an articulate spokesman for all facets of higher education.

A few men shared a story or two. Then Bart, who everyone knew had been quite a prankster when he was young, raised his hand. The teacher called on him. Bart smiled. “I guess I can share this story about my mother, even though I’m not sure what she would say if she knew I told you. But I can credit her for turning my life from one of constantly doing things that probably bordered on the edge of criminal to one that was better. “The girls in the community always had a summer camp they all attended for a week. There would usually be over a hundred girls and their leaders, so the woman who was chosen to be the camp director had to be a no-nonsense kind of woman. She needed to be tough, but loving. It happened that one year, the woman asked to take on this assignment was my mother.” Bart paused and looked at us and grinned. “You all know my mother, and you know that she is just that kind of woman. I knew it as well because I had pushed the boundaries with her many times. “One of the things that the guys my age always did as a joke was to sneak into the girls’ camp and play some pranks. We might do stuff like tip over an outhouse, or take girls’ clothes drying on clotheslines and throw them into the pool. But if we were really daring, we would try to toilet paper the women leaders’ cabin or do something else to it. “Knowing it was my mother in charge, I almost didn’t sneak into the camp with my friends, but they eventually talked me into it. We snuck in and had pulled a few pranks when one the boys suggested we should hit the leaders’ cabin. “I tried to talk them out of it, reminding them my mother was one in charge, but they said that was all the more reason we should do it. I reluctantly agreed, and we moved a portable outhouse in front of the cabin door. I thought that would be a safe prank since the women couldn’t get out to get us. “But the women heard us and opened their door, only to find it blocked. We boys scattered, laughing, until we heard the air horn. Some men were stationed around the camp to watch for us, and the horn was a signal to them. The women couldn’t get out of their cabin, but they didn’t need to to blow the horn. The men converged on us, and soon all five of us boys were rounded up. The men moved the outhouse to let the women out, and we boys quickly found ourselves standing in front of my mother. “The sheriff was called, and when he and a deputy arrived, my mother pointed at the other four boys and said, ‘You can do what you want with these four.’ Then she pointed at me and said, ‘But this one goes to jail for the rest of the week until girls’ camp is over.’” “Did they actually arrest you?” Old Evan asked. Bart nodded. “That was a Tuesday, and my mom didn’t come to get me out of jail until the next Monday.” “That’s pretty harsh for a few pranks,” Evan said. “To be honest, I wasn’t too concerned about spending a week in jail,” Bart said. “What I was afraid of, and rightly so, was the punishment I would have when I faced my mom and dad.” “Was it pretty bad?” I asked. Bart nodded. “I tried to blame it on my friends, but that just made it worse, since my mom said I needed to learn to not let my friends talk me into doing bad things. But the punishment helped me realize that even the smallest of deeds can have consequences.” Bart smiled. “And that’s why I appreciate my mother.” BIG www.vermillionfarmersmarket.org 605-857-3213 We accept SNAP, debit, cash and check and affordability, while championing initiatives to ensure student success and enhance the college experience. We offer our best wishes to Conrad as he leaves this board and launches his professional career.” Adam was honored earlier this year as the most outstanding senior of the year by the Beacom School of Business at USD. He was also chosen by his fellow students as Mr. Dakota at homecoming festivities last fall and was named Outstanding Greek Life Man of the Year for 2017-18. Among his many activities, he served on the USD Dakotathon executive team, helping raise nearly $330,000 in two years for Children’s Miracle Network. “It has been a privilege of a lifetime to serve on the Board of Regents,” Adam said. “South Dakota is fortunate to have many passionate leaders in its higher education system. I leave the board with sincere appreciation for those who serve our state, and will miss the regents, presidents, faculty, staff, and students.” Gov. Dennis Daugaard is expected to appoint soon a new student regent to serve a two-year term. Under South Dakota law, the student regent is a full voting member of the Board of Regents and participates in all meetings while enrolled in a public university under the regents’ governance.
