Saturday AprU 9, 1988, Page 2 Lawrence County Newspaper! Trio of conservation measures pass Obituaries PIERRE, S.D. (AP) Interest in ongoing state-subsidized conservation projects is high, according to Jack Fifield,, director of conservation in the South Dakota Agriculture Department. The state's 69 conservation districts submitted proposals last year that totaled about $400,000, he said. Since the state Agriculture Department had only $300,000 targeted for conservation assistance last year, that meant many requests went unfulfilled, Fifield said. The 1988 Legislature approved an addi- Weathervane County Outlook: Partly cloudy and very windy Saturday with flurries or sprinkles possible. Highs around 40 Black Hills to the upper 40s plains. Gusty north winds 20 to 35 mph. Wind advisory for praire lakes. Partly cloudy Saturday night. Lows teens Black Hills to the lower 20s plains. Partly cloudy Sunday. Highs around 30 Black Hills to the middle SOs plains. South Dakota Forecast: Areas of rain in the east Saturday with a slight chance of light rain or light snow in the west. Highs mid 40s to low SOs. Areas of rain and light snow in the east Saturday night and partly cloudy west Lows in the 20s west to the low 30s east Mostly cloudy with a chance of rain or wet snow in the east Sunday and partly cloudy west Highs in the mid 40s to mid SOs. tional $300,000 for cost-sharing conservation projects in the state fiscal year beginning July 1. Fifield said $3,200 is initially set aside for projects in each conservation district, but any money not used by a district is put into a pool for use by the other districts. More than half of the conservation projects are tree-related, Fifield said, ranging from cultivation of trees to tree planting and living snow fences. A second state Agriculture Department program approved by the Legislature for continuation offers incentives to those farmers and ranchers who plant new shelterbelts or renovate existing ones, Fifield said. Payments of $5 per acre are made under the shelterbeh program for 10 years, he said. The Legislature provided $40,000 to continue shelter-belt payments in the fiscal year beginning July 1. A program of county-by-county tax breaks for shelterbelts was started in 1985, Fifield said, but he said the program was not successful because each county offered a different exemption rate. Windbreak planting, the main tree-planting project in South Dakota, has declined more than 30 percent, according to Larry Helwig, state Extension Service forester at South Dakota State University. It's time for a tree planting revival, Helwig said. More tree plantings will be needed in South Dakota if residents are going to continue to burn wood, he said. Many people installed wood- burning stoves in their homes during the Arab oil embargo of the early 1970s, Helwig said. Much of the surplus wood has been used up, he said, adding that another oil shortage could very likely lead to the need to import firewood into South Dakota. Windbreaks also serve to reduce the cost of feeding catie in the winter because they help ease the wind-chill stress on animals, Helwig said. About one-fifth of the state's windbreaks are in poor condition, he said. A third conservation-related measure approved by this year's state Legislature allows a tax exemption for conservation rental equipment, Fifield said. Some districts were collecting the tax and others were not, Fifield said, so the exemption will have little effect on tax collections. The state Revenue Department had no objection to the bill, he said.

The jury found that Kansas City Southern conspired with other railroads to thwart the project Jurors also said the conspiracy resulted in restraint of trade in the coal transportation market, hurt interstate commerce, and damaged the state of South Dakota. The damages amount to what the state said was its loss of net profits in the water sale contract, which was canceled after the coal slurry project was abandoned. John Shenefield, a lawyer for Kansas City Southern, said the verdict will be appealed. He called the verdict incorrect and predicted that a federal appeals court will overturn it Former South Dakota Gov. Bill Janklow, who negotiated the water sale contract with ETSI and who initiated the antitrust lawsuit, called it a tremendous victory for the state. He said the amount of damages is almost twice what the state takes in every year in sales taxes. The jury deliberated 4 12 days following nine weeks of testimony in U.S. District Court in Sioux Falls. gust 194S. Fischer began working for Homestake Mining Company April 2, 1933 as a laborer.
