   BHSU Announces Record Enrollment


By Black Hills State Communications

Enrollment at Black Hills State University reached an all-time record high with 4,076 students enrolled for the fall 2009 semester. The enrollment increase breaks the previous record set nine years ago and solidly maintains BHSU's status as the third largest university in South Dakota.

"Black Hills State University now has the largest enrollment ever recorded in our 126-year history," BHSU President Kay Schallenkamp says. "The continuing growth at Black Hills State University is a reflection of our high-quality academic programs and the dedication and commitment of our faculty and staff members to creating in innovative dynamic learning community. I'm proud of the University's ability to respond to the higher education needs of the state and the greater Black Hills region."

Schallenkamp notes that it's significant that the enrollment increase is consistent for all types of students including freshmen, transfers, graduate students, as well as the students taking courses in Rapid City and online. BHSU has students enrolled from across the state (64 of the 66 South Dakota counties) and 43 states as well as 16 foreign countries.

Beth Azevedo, director of admissions at BHSU, says the enrollment increase is a reflection of the exceptional reputation the University has gained across the state, the nation, and internationally.

"This year Black Hills State University has an increase of more than three percent in our freshmen class. That's a considerable rise at a time when the state and region continues to experience a decrease in the number of high school graduates due to a declining population," Azevedo says. "An increasing number of high school students choose Black Hills State because they recognize the dynamic l learning community and the incredible success of our graduates."

Over the last five years, BHSU has seen a 75 percent increase in graduate enrollments. BHSU offers master's degrees in education, integrative genomics, and strategic leadership and is making plans to launch an MBA next fall. As a part of the overall increase, the number of students taking BHSU classes in Rapid City continues to grow. This fall BHSU has more than 1,100 students attending classes more than 130 classes in Rapid City. To accommodate the higher education needs in the state's second largest city and the surrounding region, Rapid City will be the site of a collaborative educational facility, University Center - Black Hills, which will provide a single site for classes offered by all six state universities. The center will provide students with a central location that emphasizes convenience, flexibility in scheduling, access, and one-stop services. Construction is expected to begin on the building this fall.

   Regional Health Identification Policy


In the interest of identity theft prevention, patients at all Regional Health facilities (including Lead-Deadwood Regional Hospital and Medical Clinic) will now be asked to show a photo I.D. when checking in at the admissions desk.

Accepted forms of identification include:
o Driver's license
o Passport
o Other government-issued I.D.

If the patient does not have an acceptable photo I.D. The policy states that the patient must present two forms of nonphoto I.D. such as utility bill, cell phone bill or library card.

If a patient has none of the forms of I.D., he or she is asked to bring a birth certificate or a utility bill with current address. When the patient is a minor, the parent or guardian must show I.D.

The Federal Trade Commission requires all health care facilities to implement an identity theft program by Aug. 1, 2009. While identity theft has not been a problem at Regional Health facilities, the FTC reports that in 2007, it received more than 800,000 reports of consumer fraud and identity theft in all realms of business.

   Work Begins On World's Deepest Underground Lab


Far below the Black Hills of South Dakota, crews are building the world's deepest underground science lab at a depth equivalent to more than six Empire State buildings — a place uniquely suited to scientists' quest for mysterious particles known as dark matter.

Scientists, politicians and other officials gathered Monday for a groundbreaking of sorts at a lab 4,850 foot below the surface of an old gold mine that was once the site of Nobel Prize-winning physics research.

The site is ideal for experiments because its location is largely shielded from cosmic rays that could interfere with efforts to prove the existence of dark matter, which is thought to make up nearly a quarter of the mass of the universe.

The deepest reaches of the mine plunge to 8,000 feet below the surface. Some early geology and hydrology experiments are already under way at 4,850 feet. Researchers also hope to build two deeper labs that are still awaiting funding from Congress.

"The fact that we're going to be in the Davis Cavern just tickles us pink," said Tom Shutt of Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, referring to a portion of the mine named after scientist Ray Davis Jr., who used it in the 1960s to demonstrate the existence of particles called solar neutrinos.

Davis and a colleague named John Bahcall won a share of the 2002 Nobel Prize for physics for their work.

The old Homestake Gold Mine in a community called Lead was shut down in 2001 after 125 years. Pumps that kept the mine dry were turned off years ago, so workers have been drying it out to prepare for the new research.

Before the labs are built, crews must also stabilize the tunnels and install new infrastructure. The lab at 4,850 feet is not much to look at yet. A rusty orange film covers the walls, floors, ceilings and debris left behind by miners.

The first dark matter experiment will be the Large Underground Xenon detector experiment — or LUX — a project to detect weakly interacting particles that could give scientists greater insight into the Big Bang explosion believed to have formed the universe.

Shutt, along with Brown University's Rick Gaitskell and nearly a dozen collaborators will work at the site to search for dark matter, which does not emit detectable light or radiation. But scientists say its presence can be inferred from gravitational effects on visible matter.

Scientists believe most of the dark matter in the universe contains no atoms and does not interact with ordinary matter through electromagnetic forces. They are trying to discover exactly what it is, how much exists and what effect it may have on the future of the universe.

Physicists have said that without dark matter, galaxies might never have formed. By learning more about dark matter, they hope to understand better whether the universe is expanding or contracting.

The research team will try to catch the ghostly particles in a 300-kilogram tank of liquid xenon, a cold substance that is three times heavier than water. If they tried to detect dark matter above ground, the highly sensitive detector would be bombarded by cosmic radiation.

Scientists hope to start construction on the two deepest labs by 2012 and open them by 2016. The projects are expected to cost $550 million.

   Legendary Radio Broadcaster Paul Harvey Dies


CHICAGO (AP) -- Paul Harvey, the news commentator and talk-radio pioneer whose staccato style made him one of the nation's most familiar voices, died Saturday in Arizona, according to ABC Radio Networks. He was 90.

Harvey died surrounded by family at a hospital in Phoenix, where he had a winter home, said Louis Adams, a spokesman for ABC Radio Networks, where Harvey worked for more than 50 years. No cause of death was immediately available.

Harvey had been forced off the air for several months in 2001 because of a virus that weakened a vocal cord. But he returned to work in Chicago and was still active as he passed his 90th birthday. His death comes less than a year after that of his wife and longtime producer, Lynne.

"My father and mother created from thin air what one day became radio and television news," Paul Harvey Jr. said in a statement. "So in the past year, an industry has lost its godparents and today millions have lost a friend."

Known for his resonant voice and trademark delivery of "The Rest of the Story," Harvey had been heard nationally since 1951, when he began his "News and Comment" for ABC Radio Networks.

He became a heartland icon, delivering news and commentary with a distinctive Midwestern flavor. "Stand by for news!" he told his listeners. He was credited with inventing or popularizing terms such as "skyjacker," "Reaganomics" and "guesstimate."

"Paul Harvey was one of the most gifted and beloved broadcasters in our nation's history," ABC Radio Networks President Jim Robinson said in a statement. "We will miss our dear friend tremendously and are grateful for the many years we were so fortunate to have known him."

In 2005, Harvey was one of 14 notables chosen as recipients of the presidential Medal of Freedom. He also was an inductee in the Radio Hall of Fame, as was Lynne.

Former President George W. Bush remembered Harvey as a "friendly and familiar voice in the lives of millions of Americans."

"His commentary entertained, enlightened, and informed," Bush said in a statement. "Laura and I are pleased to have known this fine man, and our thoughts and prayers are with his family."

Harvey composed his twice-daily news commentaries from a downtown Chicago office near Lake Michigan.

Rising at 3:30 each morning, he ate a bowl of oatmeal, then combed the news wires and spoke with editors across the country in search of succinct tales of American life for his program.

At the peak of his career, Harvey reached more than 24 million listeners on more than 1,200 radio stations (including KDSJ) and charged $30,000 to give a speech. His syndicated column was carried by 300 newspapers.

His fans identified with his plainspoken political commentary, but critics called him an out-of-touch conservative. He was an early supporter of the late Sen. Joseph McCarthy and a longtime backer of the Vietnam War.

Perhaps Harvey's most famous broadcast came in 1970, when he abandoned that stance, announcing his opposition to President Nixon's expansion of the war and urging him to get out completely.

"Mr. President, I love you ... but you're wrong," Harvey said, shocking his faithful listeners and drawing a barrage of letters and phone calls, including one from the White House.

In 1976, Harvey began broadcasting his anecdotal descriptions of the lives of famous people. "The Rest of the Story" started chronologically, with the person's identity revealed at the end. The stories were an attempt to capture "the heartbeats behind the headlines." Much of the research and writing was done by his son, Paul Jr.

Harvey also blended news with advertising, a line he said he crossed only for products he trusted.

In 2000, at age 82, he signed a new 10-year contract with ABC Radio Networks.

Harvey was born Paul Harvey Aurandt in Tulsa, Okla. His father, a police officer, was killed when he was a toddler. A high school teacher took note of his distinctive voice and launched him on a broadcast career.

While working at St. Louis radio station KXOK, he met Washington University graduate student Lynne Cooper. He proposed on their first date (she said "no") and always called her "Angel." They were married in 1940 and had a son, Paul Jr.

They worked closely together on his shows, and he often credited his success to her influence. She was inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame in 1997, seven years after her husband was. She died in May 2008.

   Historic Deadwood Lead Arts Council Offers New Website


The Historic Deadwood Lead Arts Council is pleased to announce that it is offering a new website, leaddeadwoodkids.com. The purpose of the website is to keep Lead-Deadwood kids and parents better informed about local children's programming.

Several years ago, due to liability issues, the Lead-Deadwood School District could no longer allow local organizations to place their children's programming information in student's Friday folders. "HDLAC's attendance at children's events has decreased significantly and in visiting with many parents, the kids would have participated if the parents knew about the event," said Karen Everett, Arts Council Director "other organizations in town have also experienced the same decline." "The school has been great about announcing the programming and allowing posters in the halls, but without something tangible for the kids to take home, parents never learn of the event or it is simply forgotten about," said Everett.

Lead-Deadwood has many great organizations that provide quality children's programming, it is hoped that this new website will increase communication between the organizations and parents and ultimately increase participation," said Everett. For more information, contact HDLAC at 584-1461.

   Paint The Town Touches Homes Throughout The Black Hills


Neighborhood Housing Services' 2008 Paint the Town Campaign was a success despite the weather. The program which assists seniors, disabled and low-income residents with the painting of their homes, successfully showed that public-private partnerships are a very effective way to revitalize neighborhoods.

The event was kicked off on June 2nd with the 1st Annual Paint the Town Spearfish. Over 50 volunteers painted the home of James and Dee Gabriel. National NeighborWorks Week (June 9-14), followed with teams of volunteers from government, business and community organizations working together to paint four homes in the Lead-Deadwood area as well as in Edgmont. This week the event concludes in Sturgis with the 4th Annual Paint the Town Sturgis and the painting of Roberta Freeman's home.

In all, over 230 volunteers dedicated hours to the painting of the selected homes. The 2008 Paint the Town recipients were: James and Dee Gabriel, Spearfish; Marita Noeller, Deadwood; Wilbur and Polly West, Deadwood; Ramona Hickens, Lead; Roberta Freeman, Sturgis and George Eberle, Edgemont.

In recognition of the many volunteer hours dedicated to "Paint the Town," Neighborhood Housing Services started the "Golden Paint Brush Award." This award is given to those volunteers who have dedicated five or more years to the program. The 2008 Golden Paint Brush recipients for Lead-Deadwood area were Krystal Stulken, Jim Phillips and Darlene Burns.
