They were both kind and pretty, and both were cheerleaders. Sally was my age, and Martha was a year younger. I had never seen them angry at each other, and a person would be wise not to cross one of them, or he might be facing the wrath of both. I had never seen two more devoted siblings. “Sally,” I said one day, “how do you and Martha get along so well? My brother and I are definitely not as good of friends as the two of you are.” Sally smiled. “I don’t really know. We almost never argue. Martha is my best friend.” I watched them through two years of school and knew that it was not just an act. They were genuinely best friends. It was no surprise that after Sally was hired at the local hamburger joint, Martha soon was working there, too, and they worked amazingly well together. One night, I was asked to pick up a couple of gallons of root beer for a party. The hamburger place where Sally and Martha worked sold it fresh from the tap. So an hour or so before the party was to start, I made my way over there. I hoped for a chance to have a casual visit with the girls while I was getting my order filled. I was surprised to see the two of them working alone. It was dinner time, and usually there were at least six employees. But for some reason, Sally and Martha were working alone and running as fast as they could. Sally was cooking orders, and in between, she would run out and serve. Martha was taking orders and serving. Both girls were tired and sweaty. There was a huge line of people waiting for food. I sat on a stool at the counter. “Be with you in a minute,” Sally said. “No hurry,” I said. “There are a lot of people ahead of me.” The girls worked hard, but for a long time, the line didn’t go down at all. But eventually, the dinner rush slowed and they started to catch up. A couple of other workers came, which also helped. But one customer, who had been waiting a little while, let both girls have his ire as they gave him his order. I felt it was unfair, because they were doing their best. But the man was soon gone, and Martha turned to the last lady in line. The lady ordered an ice-cream cone. “Sally, can you get that?” Martha asked in a tense voice. “I have a couple of other orders to serve.” “Get it yourself,” Sally replied. “I have to go back to the kitchen.” Sally went to the kitchen, and Martha let out an exasperated sigh. Martha filled the two orders she had ready and was just getting the cone made when Sally came out. Sally saw the lady still standing there waiting, and Sally turned to her sister. “Martha, for heaven’s sake, don’t you have that cone ready yet?” “Layoff!” Martha said, “Unless you want this cone in your face.” A couple more workers showed up, so Sally turned her attention to me. Quite angrily she asked, “So what can I get you?” “Two gallons of root beer,” I replied. And as Sally turned to get them, I added, “And can I get that service with a smile?” She turned to me and scowled, “Don’t push your luck.” Sally brought me the root beer, then asked, “Is there anything else?” “Yes,” I replied. “It’s the first time I have seen two certain sisters angry with each other.” Sally and Martha looked at each other sheepishly as I continued. “But I was just thinking, if the two of you could go on break, I’d love to buy us some ice-cream cones so we can visit.” The other workers said they could handle things, so I purchased the ice-cream, and the three of us sat down to visit. As the girls took a much-needed break, Sally said, “I hope you don’t think we always act like that.” “I know you don’t,” I said, “and you had a good reason, anyway. But I still didn’t get my service with a smile.” They both smiled, and then Sally laughed and said, “You still might be pushing your luck.” Department Of Revenue Offers Additional Guidance On Remote Seller Law PIERRE, S.D. — The South Dakota Department of Revenue reminds remote sellers that they must obtain a South Dakota sales tax license and pay applicable sales tax beginning Nov. 1, 2018. The Nov. 1 deadline is a result of Senate Bill 1, which was signed into law at the conclusion of last week’s special legislative session. South Dakota’s remote seller law applies to businesses without a physical presence in South Dakota that meet one or both of the following criteria in the previous or current calendar year: • The business’s gross revenue from sales into South Dakota exceeded $100,000. • The business made sales for delivery into South Dakota in 200 or more separate transactions. “South Dakota has been at the forefront in achieving tax fairness throughout the nation, and we look forward to the next step in this process,” said Department of Revenue Secretary Andy Gerlach. “The Nov. 1 start date not only allows remote sellers ample time to obtain licensing, but it also provides fairness to our brick and mortar businesses during the holiday season.” Enjoy Fall Colors On The Black Hills National Forest Custer, SD, September 18, 2018 – Fall colors are right around the corner and will be showing up all over the Black Hills. The Forest Service encourages you to get outdoors and enjoy one of nature’s most spectacular seasons. “The best viewing for Fall colors on the Forest is usually late September to early October,” said Scott Jacobson, Public Affairs Officer, Black Hills National Forest. Visit the Black Hills National Forest Fall Foliage Webpage for recommended fall color viewing areas across the Forest. A Few Fall Driving Safety Tips: • Watch for wildlife. Wildlife can run along and across roadways without notice. • Make sure you observe the rules of the roads such as posted speed limits and no passing zones. • Park your vehicle in designated parking/rest areas. • When parking along roadways, make sure you are not impeding traffic or blocking gates. The Black Hills National Forest hopes everyone enjoys this year’s fall color viewing. For more information on the Black Hills National Forest, visit http://www.fs.usda. gov/blackhills.

Hanson Elected To Leadership Position In Mid-America Regulatory Conference PIERRE, S.D. – South Dakota Public Utilities Commission Vice Chairman Gary Hanson was elected to serve as treasurer of Mid-America Regulatory Conference, Inc. at the organization’s annual meeting in Kansas City, Missouri. Prior to this position, Hanson served two years as the group’s secretary. MARC is an association of regional organizations of utility and energy regulatory agencies from 14 states including Arkansas, Kansas, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas and Wisconsin. It was incorporated in 1958 to facilitate problem solving, idea sharing and the discussion of regulatory and policy issues affecting individual states, specific regions and the nation. State utilities commissioners that join Hanson on the MARC leadership team are Nick Wagner of the Iowa Utilities Board as president; Norman Saari of the Michigan Public Service Commission as vice president; Sadzi Oliva of the Illinois Commerce Commission as secretary; and Rachel Eubanks of the Michigan Public Service Commission as executive committee member. “The utility and energy industries consistently experience new issues and topics. In this environment, the discussions I’ve participated in through my involvement with MARC have helped shape national trends and positions,” Hanson stated. Hanson is currently in his third term on the South Dakota PUC. Since first being elected to the commission in 2002, he has held many other leadership roles including serving as the PUC’s chairman five times and representing South Dakota on the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners’ Committee on Electricity. He has also served on the executive committee and as treasurer of the Organization of MISO States, represented the nation’s NARUC commissioners on the steering committee of the National Wind Coordinating Collaborative and is a member of the Advisory Council for New Mexico State University’s Center for Public Utilities. Prior to his election to the PUC, Hanson was elected to two terms as mayor of Sioux Falls and served seven years as Sioux Falls’ utilities commissioner where he oversaw the development and day-to-day activities of the city’s three municipal utilities.
