How to grow a 500-lb pumpkin
• Big pumpkins a seasonal project for father, young son
Amy Blum/For the Sun
Jessica Giard/Sun
Mike Hosek and son Aadyn, 6, pose among the tangle of vines in the yard of their
rural Chamberlain home. The two have grown two giant pumpkins which, as of last
week, Hosek estimated to weigh 480-490 pounds. He’ll display the larger pumpkin
at the Fall Festival big pumpkin contest at Great Western Bank on Saturday.
Mudcats bowling
opens season
Pumpkins come in all sizes
and signal fall across the
country. The orange delights
can be found gracing décor of
all kinds, and for many people,
the pumpkin pie flavor is as
American as baseball.
For Mike Hosek and his
family of rural Chamberlain,
pumpkins also represent
an appreciation for friendly
competition and quality time
After months of careful
attention—including countless
hours of care—Hosek and his
six-year-old son Aadyn will have
their giant pumpkin measured
at Great Western Bank during
the Fall Festival in Chamberlain
on Saturday, Oct. 5 with hopes
of topping the scale at 500
“A few years back, Mark
Adamson, Jeff Tichy, Foster
Iverson and I had a little
contest to see who could raise
the biggest pumpkin. It was
a friendly competition and
something fun to do,” Hosek
said. “Foster’s pumpkin died,
but the rest of us weighed in at
a contest sponsored by Happy
Hydros of Pukwana.”
Hosek entered two pumpkins
that year. Weighing in at 385
and 383 pounds, his vegetables
earned him bragging rights and
the top cash prize.
“It was fun,” Hosek said.
“But, raising giant pumpkins
right takes a lot of work and
time. Aadyn and I tried our
hand at other garden projects,
and after raising 12-foot tall
sunflowers last summer, we
decided to give giant pumpkins
another shot.”
Together, the father and son
team – with help from Hosek’s
wife Bonnie and the couple’s
older children Heather and Tyler
– spent countless winter hours
researching the science behind
growing giant pumpkins. They
chose American Giant seeds
and set to watering, planting
vines, pulling weeds and then
watering some more.

• Chamberlain Special Olympics
team rolls into first competition
Kris Rademacher/
for the Sun
When Holly Bury moved
to Chamberlain with her
brother Mike it didn’t take
her long to notice something
was missing.
Bury has been involved
with Special Olympics for
many years as she supported
her brother’s involvement
in the organization. She had
hoped Mike would be able
to continue to participate
in Chamberlain but instead
found there wasn’t a club.
As a result Bury took
action and the Missouri
River Mudcats Chamberlain
Special Olympics chapter
was born.
The Missouri River
Mudcats held their first
practice Sunday, Sept. 8
and practice every Sunday
at the Bowling Dome in
Chamberlain. Currently
bowling is the only activity
in which members of the
club will compete in Special
Olympics. Bury hopes to
add more sports but more
support will be needed.
She said the club’s
greatest needs are funding
and volunteers.
“All funds have to be
raised or donated,” said
Bury. “Participants are not
allowed to pay their own
She hopes to raise enough
funds to be able to purchase
team shirts before the club’s
first competition in Mitchell
on Wednesday, Oct. 9. Along
with team uniforms, there
are other expenses the club
must cover.
“We need to be able to
pay for room, board and fuel
for the club to go to the state
competition in November.
And that doesn’t include the
entry fees for the athletes
and coaches,” said Bury.
It costs $15 per athlete
and $5 per coach to be
involved in the state
competition. Donations

Defense considers
moving Gonzalez trial
Jessica Giard/Sun
Donika Gonzalez and
her defense attorneys have
10 days after a hearing on
Friday, Sept. 27 to decide if
they agree to keeping her
trial in Brule County.
Gonzalez is set to stand
trial in February for her
alleged role in the death of
four-year-old Mason Naser
in Gann Valley. The boy’s
death was due to injuries
related to apparent child
abuse under her watch.

Ag development study stalls, but data on target
Sun Staff Reports
The county-wide ag
development study funded
by the state of South Dakota
has stalled in Brule County.
Harry Redman, GIS
specialist with District III
planning and development,
reported to Brule County
Commissioners on Tuesday,
Sept. 24 that he’s looking
for further information on
water and electric utilities
before they’re able to finish
the study.
“We have to double check
the data with the electric
company and rural water,”
he said, in a phone interview
with the Sun on Monday.
So far, he feels they’re
on the right track. The data
they’ve uncovered to this
point shows that the best
ag development sites are in
the eastern part of Brule
County, near the grain
shuttle facility and the Iron
Horse Development land.
“It was nice to see our
date is modeling what’s
really happening in the real
world,” said Redman.
The site study, which
looks at existing GIS
data on utilities, services
and transportation

to be complete this fall.

Cheers to volunteers; Sneers to staredowns
CHEERS to the local
volunteers and the business
community who support events in
the Chamberlain/Oacoma area.
This weekend, we have the
annual Fall Festival, coordinated
by the Chamberlain/Oacoma
Area Chamber of Commerce.
Over the past year, the chamber
has experienced fits and starts in
trying to rebuild the organization’s
staff and status in the community.
Through it all, they’re also trying
to reconfigure where the chamber
fits in the grand scheme of
community events.
The chamber office is becoming
re-established as a source for
community information and
support, not just as a group of
event planners. Rather than
another event pushed through
the chamber office, this summer’s
Fourth of July events were led
by local volunteers, namely Amy
Goodman. The chamber also
handed off the annual Easter
egg hunt to the Aktion Club
and changed hands with the
Jessica Giard, news editor
[email protected]
Chamberlain street dance in July.
By shifting events onto others’
plates, this frees up the chamber
to work on internal revitalization
and to build better core events,
like the Fall Festival.
But, the Fall Festival isn’t
possible without volunteers from
the local community, residents
and businesses alike. They’ve
developed a Saturday full of
activities between Chamberlain
and Oacoma. The full schedule
is on page 16, and you’ll see the
festival is growing bigger than
in years past. That wouldn’t be
possible with excitement from the
SNEERS to Congress and
the partisan politics that have
kept D.C. in what the media is
calling the ‘shutdown staredown.’
Frankly, it’s disappointing.
Daily, the headlines warn us
about the impacts of the federal
budget issues on public education,
Head Start, services to the
reservations, transportation and
highways, military, food stamps
and healthcare, for starters. And
now, yet again, we teeter until the
very last moment to see if we’ll
still have a federal government
in the morning. Frankly, it feels
like one of those Hollywood
‘end-of-the-world’ blockbusters
where we stand outside our front
doors watching the meteors come
crashing down – and there’s
nothing we can do.
What seems to be missing from
all the debate – or what seems
to be missing from coverage of
all the debate – is some sense of
recognition and validation that the
leaders on either side of the aisle
Kindergarten is
Hard Work
Imagine being in
kindergarten … or think
back when you entered
It’s sometimes difficult
to remember the finer
details but the big picture
is always painted on that
canvas called our mind.
To try and recreate this
picture I talked with the
kindergarten teachers,
Mrs. Hough, Ms. Jones,
Mrs. Larson, Mrs. Nelson,
Mrs. Woodruff, CES
Principal Mr. Bergeson and
a few parents. These are
the adults that successfully
move our children through
a place in their lives where
it seems like everything is
Separation issues from
parents are sometimes
at their height during the
transition time as the first
few weeks of school there
are some tears along with
“I want my mom.”
CES has a transition
program that extends over
months to make life easier
for the children and their
families as they make the
adjustment of going to
school all day every day.
The staff members are
there to help and many
issues are often no longer
there as the school year
moves along.
Think of the bus ride
that many of our children
take each morning;
imagine leaving someone
you love, getting on the bus
and believing them that
everything will be ok. Of
course it ends up that way
but if you don’t have an
older sibling to assure you
of this, it can be somewhat
Then imagine entering
Chamberlain Elementary,
a BIG place, a totally new
environment, with over
500 people in the building.
It may seem like someone
just dropped you off in a
foreign country. Then you
enter the classroom where
there are about 20 other
people who don’t look
anything like those at your
last family get together.
The reality of
kindergarten then sets in
and children know that
this is school and the work
is “learning.” Following
a routine is one of the
first things learned and
could be right about something.
Very rarely do we hear anyone say,
“You have a good point.” Instead,
it’s like the embroiled married
couple who constantly argue
because they haven’t learned to
solve problems in any other way.
As I write this, we have
about six hours to go until the
government may, or may not,
shutdown. The last government
shutdown in 1996 ran for three
weeks. So, hopefully, you already
have your passport for your trip to
quiet, friendly Canada because it
could be awhile if you don’t.
CHEERS to South Dakota
State University for the simple
fact that my alma mater will be on
Chamberlain’s turf next weekend
with the annual River City Band
SDSU’s marching band, The
Pride, is a return guest to the
festival. The Pride is well-traveled,
experienced and the drum line
is a hoot. Of course, many drum
lines are, however I hold a special
fondness for SDSU’s after a couple
years of shooting them at football
games and the annual Hobo Day
parade while I worked for The
Collegian, SDSU’s student-run
newspaper. Fond memories,
The River City Band Festival
is another event that wouldn’t
happen if it weren’t for the
volunteers behind the scenes
and on the streets next Saturday.
The festival may be slightly
self-serving as it shows off
Chamberlain’s high school and
middle school marching bands,
but it also gives smaller schools a
chance to highlight their work in a
bigger venue than the hometown
homecoming parade.
The festival is a two-piece
event, starting with the downtown
parade at 10:30 am on Saturday,
Oct. 12 followed by the afternoon
field performance at the CHS
athletic field.
Editorial Cartoon
it can be difficult when
the last routine you knew
was waking up, eating a
leisurely breakfast, and
watching a few cartoons
before heading outside to
play or going out on the
tractor with dad. Routine
then ties in with the actual
structure of the classroom
which also can be a
challenging adjustment.
Many children have
attended a day care or a
pre-school program and
the transition is sometimes
easier. You have to learn
to sit still for short periods
of time, work on getting
along with others, gain
self-control which includes
not blurting out something
whenever /wherever you
want, and play fair. And
what happens when you
think you’re coming to
school to play all day and
that doesn’t work out?
There is even homework
in kindergarten which
often could be having
someone read books to
you or help you work on a
math problem. But thank
goodness there is still nap
time, which is now referred
to as rest time.
Yet there is also a
challenge in this…What
about the movie that’s
going on during rest time?
Should I actually nap or
watch the movie?
Kindergartners face
many new experiences
every day. I often think
about the book, by Robert
Fulghum, All I Really
Need to Know I Learned
in Kindergarten, which
probably says it best
when describing all that
kindergartners learn.
It is now mid-term
of the first quarter and
as I make my way to the
kindergarten rooms, it
appears as though most
children have made the
adjustments very well, and
are happy to be in the place
they now call school.

High profile people,
like Krebs, definitey have
more of an edge through
the convention process and
pretty well blocks others
from considering a public
service office. Is this exactly
fair? South Dakota’s two
main political parties need
to open their doors to new
faces. Why do I say that?
Because the numbers are
growing in the independent
ranks of the state. And that
just about shuts the door for
any of them even wanting to
run for a state-wide political

himself to new places. When
a young visitor stumbles
upon Pete one sunny summer

The Planning Committee
members stated, “We’ve
worked diligently the last
eleven months to prepare
a day for the whole family. Businesses have been very
supportive in making sure
everything is in place and
ready for the crowd. We’re

Chamberlain will be crowded
with people from our own
community as well as
people from every nook and
cranny. We especially want
to see Chamberlain wellrepresented!! Your students
need to see you and know
that you support them.”

to schools that will be in the
festival,” stated Niles. “We’ve
asked them to hang the
posters in their school and
businesses, so they have good
support from their home
Pam Petrak stated,
“We’ll be putting posters
on car windshields during

would like to celebrate and
observe, with our local
community, Fire Safety /

6 through 12 by dropping a
word of thanks to our local
The Reliance Volunteer
Fire Department greatly
appreciates the Orrion &
Edith Barger Memorial
Foundation and its board for
their contribution last year. In 2013 the fire department
was awarded a grant by the
foundation to purchase new
safety bunker gear. For the past few decades
the Reliance department
has been using other
department’s hand-medowns, which was always
appreciated. But with
the support of the Barger
Foundation, we received the
final pieces of the bunker
gear in mid-August. The gear came from
Metro Fire out of Aberdeen. The foundation award
was used to purchase 15
complete Bunker Gear sets
for our volunteers, including
gloves, boots, pants, jacket
and helmets. We used
additional dollars donated
from area individuals and
businesses and from our
own reserves to update our
wild land protective gear. The new gear combined
with our older gear has
allowed all of our volunteer
fire fighters to be outfitted
in proper protective
equipment. Fire safety
gear goes through intense
stress and wear and tear
so keeping all volunteers
properly protected is
We have already used
the bunker gear at a few
fires and controlled burns
in the last month and our
volunteers praise the gear at
every call. The Reliance Volunteer
Department also realizes
the gear is only as good
as the fire fighter inside
of it, so we are once again
stressing training for
our volunteers. Several
volunteers attended an area
fire school in Murdo in

Coach Harry Haanen
The Chamberlain Cubs 7th

the visiting Panthers 40-14.
Platte scored first on a long
pass for an 8-0 lead. Carson
Powers ran around the left

to put the Cubs on the board
and make the score 8-6.
Platte would score their
final touchdown of the game
the succeeding offensive
series, to take a 14-6 lead.
The Panthers defense stopped
the Cubs on downs and were
driving for another score
when middle linebacker

a pass on about their own 10
yard line and returned it for
a touchdown and a 14-14 tie.
This would be the halftime

Pumpkin, from 1: ‘Real science’ involved in growing big pumpkins
“I’m telling you. There’s
a real science to growing
those massive pumpkins.
It involves use of custom
fertilizer applications at
key growing stages, careful
planting of each vine that
grows (to ensure all the
nutrients feed only one
fruit) and more,” Hosek
said. “That’s why I’m not in
that 1,600 pound range.”
“Yet,” he added.
With his goal of reaching
a 500-pound pumpkin,
there’s opportunity for
growth at the Hosek
pumpkin patch. Seeds from
record-setting pumpkins
sell for up to $250 each.
South Dakota’s largest
record-setting pumpkin was
raised by veteran pumpkin
grower Kevin Marsh from
Parker; he holds the state
record at 1,674 pounds. Ron
Wallace of Greene, Rhode
Island grew the world-
record setting pumpkin in
2012 with a 2,009-pound
For now, however, Hosek
is grateful for an activity to
enjoy with his youngest son.
“Aadyn and I have been
able to spend lots of time
together, and he is proud of
the pumpkins we’ve grown
together,” Hosek said.
Requiring up to 50
gallons of water per day, a
giant pumpkin can take on
weight quickly. Will their
pumpkin make 500 pounds?
Hosek doesn’t know, and
in the end, that’s not really
what’s important.
“I just hope people enjoy
coming out to see all the
pumpkins entered,” he said.
“I think it’s fun to share
what I’ve learned, and if
anyone ever wanted to know
more or work on a giant
pumpkin project together,
I’m game.”

Grounds for survival
If someone asked me the
age-old question “What’s
the one thing you would
want if you were stranded
on an island?” My answer
would be simple: COFFEE.
If I was allowed three
things, then multiply my
coffee answer times three.
I say coffee because if
I were marooned on an
island, rather than feel
despondent about the grim
outlook of possibly not
being found, I would look
forward to having coffee to
brew, smell, and savor the
next morning, which starts
out any day right. As long
as I had coffee that’s all I
would need to survive days,
months, or years stuck
on an island. Any cleaned
out coconut shell would
easily suffice as a travel
or ceramic coffee mug to
simulate carrying around
my coffee at home.
Coffee has already
helped me survive a
plentitude of rough days
dealing with livestock, their
water, ranch equipment
and occasionally grumpy
family members. At the
realization of possibly never
being found, a human has
to adapt and figure out how
to keep themselves alive
through motivation, energy,
and positive thinking.
In spite of such
circumstances, I would
have a reason to get myself
up every morning—to
have that first taste of
coffee at the beginning of
the day. That is where my
motivation would come
from to get up and face
another day stranded on
an island. The thought of
having freshly brewed,
hot coffee currently does
that for me every morning
for circumstances much
worse—cow checking,
water-hauling and
Mondays. I’ve always been
able to turn a bad morning
around with another pot
of coffee once I returned
to the house, where the
morning’s mayhem can be
Another thing that the
marooned need to survive
is developing a daily
routine: scratching another
day on the cave wall,
gathering wood for firemaking, collecting fresh
water, spearing fish, and
making coffee. Coffee is full
of antioxidants and keeps
my digestive system on a
regular pattern and would
fit right in with strandedon-an-island daily routines.
Patience is an important
skill needed for a stranded
person. On an island,
patience is paramount
in getting fire from the
friction of rubbing sticks
together, waiting for fresh
rain to collect or getting
rescued. I would fare well
because the process of
making coffee at home

teaches me a lot of patience.
Making coffee also kills a
lot of time especially when
I’m waiting for it, forcing
me to be patient. Waiting
for coffee to brew is similar
to waiting to be rescued.
Plus, if all I had were coffee
beans I could kill even
more time waiting to be
rescued by hand-grinding
Equally important to
survival is having energy.
The caffeine in coffee
provides that and would
make island mornings
productive before the day
turned hot.
Coffee also goes
well with any food. If I
was forced to eat some
disgusting food in order
to survive I could always
wash it down with good
java. Coffee doesn’t need
anything to mask its taste;
black is perfect. Unlike
getting burned out on a
diet of shellfish or coconuts
every single day, I would
never tire of having coffee.
If the island I was to be
stranded on didn’t have
coffee, well, then I would
want to be stuck on a
different island.

GFP has apps for both
the Android and iPhone
platforms. Those
can be found at either
Google Play (android) or
App Store (iPhone).
These applications lets
the user view the hunting
and fishing regulations,
apply for licenses to hunt
and fish in South Dakota,
reserve a campsite in one
of the state parks, and view
maps of public hunting
and fishing opportunities.
The maps use GPS to show
the user where they are on
public land. The hunting
and fishing regulations
are divided into sections
to make it easier to find
the information the user is
looking for.
One of my favorite GFP
website tools, listed under
the Hunting tab, is the
public hunting maps. If
you select that link, under
the MAPS listing there is
an online version of our
popular Hunting Atlas, but
my favorite tool there is the
“Interactive Map System
(WILMA)”. On this site,
you can zoom into anywhere
in South Dakota, the default
setting for this page is
“street mode”, however if
you select the “satellite”
button it will switch the
format to aerial photography
which will give you a much
better indication of the “lay

with our hunting atlas, it

season Oct 12 – 14 and the
general pheasant season
which opens at noon on
Saturday, Oct 19th.
As you prepare for
your fall hunting outings,
here are a few “tools” you
need or should consider
adding to your fall “goodie
bag”. First, our 2013 GFP
Hunting Handbook and
2013 Hunting Atlas, both
are available at our local
GFP office or at many
local retailers. Because of
printing requirements, our
Hunting Atlas goes to print
mid-summer, after being
sent to the printer there are
always a few changes and
additions that take place.
You can find those Hunting
Atlas updates on our GFP
website at: http://gfp.
default.aspx. If you use a
Garmin GPS unit, you can
also download our hunting
atlas directly on to your
unit from our website at:

Francis Case
Around Chamberlain ,
on Francis Case the bite has
slowed in the Chamberlain
area but anglers are still
catching fish. It’s the time
of year that the bite can be
spotty sometimes and you
have to look for the fish.
Anglers are using crawlers
- and some pulling plugs.
Most anglers are fishing
in the 10-30 foot depths.
The area from Kiowa to Big
Bend Dam is still going well
and also from Chamberlain
In the Platte area the bite
has slowed and you have to
work to get limits. Anglers
are pulling plugs and using
live bait in around 15-35
feet. Fall fishing will start
when the water cools a bit.
The fish are looking very
healthy and the fall fishing
is going to be excellent!
At the Pickstown
- Wagner – Lake Andes area
fishing has slowed some.
The water temperature
needs to cool off a bit and
the fall bite should be
great. The water level is
good and that helps the
fishing. Anglers are fishing
in anywhere from 4-40 feet
depths. You have to look for
the fish and there are lots
of little ones – so it’s fun
fishing, you just can’t keep
them all. It’s slowly turning
to a minnow bite. The areas
from White Swan to South
Wheeler are going the best
right now. Also, northern
are still being pulled in!
Pease Creek has a new
fish cleaning station and
a new RV dumping site
– great new additions. Fall
fishing is slow getting going
but it should be very good!
Below the Fort Randall
Dam anglers are catching
some fish, but it depends
on the release of water.
Catfish have been biting
really well here. Again,
watch for the elk on the west
shore – we’ve had reports of
boaters spotting them!
*Please remember that
the fishing conditions on
the Missouri River change
constantly and this report
is simply a guideline – a
snapshot in time.*
