At this time of the year we find many students thinking seriously about what their future holds and what will be needed to help make their dream job become a reality. Many find themselves wondering if they will be ready to deal successfully with what will be expected of them as they look towards the end of high school and what comes after. As with every generation, some students will be confident they are ready when they leave school to successfully compete for opportunities while others sometimes fear they will be unprepared for the next step in life.

Since signing on with South Dakota Center of Farm/Ranch Management, I have come to some realizations. 1) I get to travel in some of the most beautiful country as I traverse the Missouri and Cheyenne River hills. 2) I enjoy working with adults as much as high school students. 3) A person that is quite detail oriented in certain aspects of their operation can be quite lackadaisical in other aspects of their operation. The area of the operation where I witness this behavior the most is the feeding of the beef cow herd. This information has not necessarily been gleaned from the people I work with on a regular basis, but from conversations I have overheard at coffee shops, gas stations, and other gathering spots.

We battled through out the game. Had 2 leads by as much as 9 but just couldn’t put them away. Statistically we won about every category except the one that matters most. They were a good team that has already beat a lot of good teams. We were right there and just needed to finish the game. This will be a big stretch for us now playing 4 games in 6 days starting on Thursday.”

The U.S. Senate has only confronted a presidential impeachment trial three times in American history. The first was President Andrew Johnson’s trial in 1868, which reflected the lingering divisions of the Civil War. The second was President Bill Clinton’s trial more than 130 years later in 1999. At that time, I was serving South Dakota as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives. I assumed and hoped that would be the last time I would be involved with the very rarely used impeachment provision in the U.S. Constitution. Regrettably, it was not.

The Senate recently voted to acquit the president of the two Articles of Impeachment sent to us by the House of Representatives, falling 19 and 20 votes short of the 67 needed to remove him from office. I voted against the articles of impeachment, in keeping with the constitutional intent our framers expected.
