2021 Tough Enough to Wear Pink Campaign Raised More than $3.8K
100% of proceeds stay local to support cancer patients right here in Brookings
Tough Enough was BACK in 2021! And yes, Brookings IS stronger than cancer. The Swiftel Center’s 2021 Tough Enough to Wear Pink campaign raised $3,835 to donate directly to Brookings Health System Foundation to continue services that support local cancer patients right here in Brook- ings, SD.
“Brookings Health System Foundation is so thankful for the continued sup- port of the Swiftel Center through the Tough Enough to Wear Pink cam- paign.” said Sara Schneider, Brookings Health System Foundation Director. “The campaign takes place during the month of October – Breast Cancer Awareness Month – and brings attention to the importance of breast self- examination and having regular mammograms, all while supporting local cancer patients within our community.”
Since 2006, more than $64,715 has been raised through the Swiftel Cen- ter’s annual Tough Enough to Wear Pink campaign. The Swiftel Center staff works directly with Brookings Health System Foundation to effectively dis- tribute funds. Thanks to community support, the campaign has assisted many cancer patients in Brookings and Brookings County with 100% of proceeds staying local.
“Funds are used locally to promote local cancer screening benefits and re- sources that are available at Avera Medical Group Bookings and Brookings Health System.” said Tim Watson, Brookings Health System Diagnostic Im- aging Director. “Our radiology department brings comprehensive clinical imaging capabilities to our community, including a mobile PET/CT unit, which comes to Brookings Health System bi-monthly helping local patients avoid travel expenses and time away from home.”
The Swiftel Center would like to thank all the Tough Enough to Wear Pink partners for their continued support of this campaign. Partners include Brookings Health System, Brookings Health System Foundation, Avera Medical Group Foundation, South Dakota State University Miller Wellness Center, Prairie Graphics, and Sutton Rodeo Inc. Extended thanks to the Avera Clinic, SDSU Miller Wellness Center, Brookings County Outdoor Ad- venture Center, and Brookings Area Chamber of Commerce for assisting as t-shirts sales locations throughout Brookings.
The 2021 campaign kicked off on October 1 and was active throughout the entire month, wrapping up with a final weekend at the 2021 Brookings PRCA Rodeo (November 5 and 6). Community members were able to con- tribute to the campaign by purchasing Tough Enough to Wear Pink t-shirts and/or making monetary donations. This year, the Swiftel Center also de- buted Tough to Wear Pink koozies at the 2021 Brookings PRCA Rodeo; koozies were available for $2 with 100% of sales contributed directly to the campaign.

BROOKINGS AREA UNITED WAY AND BOBCAT BACKERS PARTNER WITH AMERICAN RED CROSS - BLOOD DRIVE RESULTS
Brookings Area United Way and Bobcat Backers hosted a community blood drive with the American Red Cross on Wednesday, December 15, from 12:00pm to 6:00pm at the Outdoor Adventure Center located at 2810 22nd Ave. South in Brookings.
The community blood drive had 6 new donors in addition to re- turning donors, totaling to 39 donors. With all the blood dona- tions received, our community blood drive potentially saved 114 lives!
Blood is a perishable product that can only come from volun- teer blood donors. With someone in the U.S. needing blood every two seconds, blood products must be constantly replen- ished, according to the Red Cross.
“We urge community members to donate blood and help en- sure that patients in local hospitals have a supply of blood ready and waiting before an emergency occurs. There’s no better feeling than knowing that your blood donation may give someone a second chance at life.” The next American Cross blood drive will be on March 16, 2022. You can sign up by vis- iting RedCrossBlood.org or calling 1-800-RED CROSS.

What Should I Buy for that Special Someone? By David F. Graper, SDSU Extension Horticulture Specialist Emeritus Brookings Area Master Gardeners
Christmas and New Year’s is over. The tree is out on the curb, has been recycled or perhaps it is now a temporary shelter for the birds that come to your feeders in the back yard. The poinsettia isn’t looking so good anymore and the Christmas cactus has dropped its flowers. Valentine’s day, Easter and later, Mother’s Day are coming up and you are beginning to think about what to get that special someone to let them know you
care.
Most people likely think of candy, especially chocolate, or cut flowers as a good gift idea. But it won’t take long for the candy to be gone and the cut flowers to fade and drop their petals around the vase. Now for some people, those gifts might still be the right choice. But what if your special friend - woman, man or child, loves plants and enjoys growing them? Perhaps a potted plant is the way to go. But choices are nearly endless, just limited to what your local florist, garden center or greenhouse might have in stock. Here are some things to consider in helping you decide.
If you are going to look at getting a flowering potted plant, it would be good to try to make a good choice as far as length of bloom time, likeli- hood to re-bloom in the home, as well as cultural needs. If you are not a “plant-person”, then I would suggest asking some of the staff to help make suggestions. Otherwise, here are a few tips.
African violet: a nice, smaller flowering houseplant, needs medium light, avoid water on leaves, variety of colors, can be in bloom almost contin- uously.
Amaryllis: perennial bulbs but not winter-hardy here, variety of colors, easy first-year bloom for a couple weeks, fairly easy to re-bloom. Anthurium: flowering tropical plant with glossy leaves and long bloom time if grown in a sunny location, variety of colors.
Azalea: perennial shrubs but not hardy here, variety of colors, usually sold in bloom, keep growing media evenly moist, difficult to re-bloom. Begonia, Rieger: flowering annual, variety of colors, long bloom time but compost when finished blooming.
Bromeliads: several species and colors, long-lasting flower spikes, often called vase-plants because they often hold water in base of plant. Cineraria: wide variety of colors, 4” to 8” pot sizes, keep cool and in bright light for longest bloom, some fragrance, compost after flowering. Crown-of-thorns: usually sold in bloom, needs sun to continue blooming, usually long-lived, keep fairly dry.
Cyclamen: perennial bulb but not hardy here, usually sold in bloom, va- riety of colors and fragrance, long bloom time if kept cool, dwarf and full- size plants, difficult to get to re-bloom so compost when finished. Easter lily: flowering bulb, usually hardy here, plant outside after frost, white highly fragrant flowers.
Hybrid lily: hardy perennial bulb, plant outside after frost, variety of colors, some highly fragrant.
Kalanchoe: generally flowering once for several weeks, then just a green plant, difficult to re-bloom, variety of colors.
Phalaenopsis orchid: usually sold in bloom, long bloom time, fairly easy to re-bloom, variety of colors, likes medium light and careful watering. Potted spring bulbs: (tulips, daffodils, hyacinth, etc.) keep cool and in bright light to extend bloom time, usually best to compost when finished blooming.
Peace lily: easy to grow, tolerates low light but needs brighter light to bloom, can be long-lived, divide as needed.

The road to the CMAs goes through Brookings
Fourteen of the 2021 CMA Award nominees have performed at the Swiftel Center
Fourteen of the 2021 Country Music Association (CMA) Award nominees have performed at the Swiftel Center, with some of the nominees perform- ing multiple times at the Brookings arena. The Swiftel Center has made a name for itself as being a stop on the road to country music fame.
Eric Church, Miranda Lambert and Luke Bryan were the earliest Swiftel Cen- ter performers nominated for a 2021 CMA Award. In 2010, Eric Church opened for Miranda Lambert on Lambert’s arena headlining tour “Revolu- tion.” Church was nominated for Entertainer of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year, Album of the Year for “Heart” as well as Single of the Year and Song of the Year both for “Hell of A View. In 2017, Lambert returned and sold out the Swiftel Center on her arena headlining tour “Highway Vagabond.” She was nominated for Entertainer of the Year, Female Vocalist of the Year, and Musical Event of the Year for “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home).”
In 2010, Luke Bryan opened for Jason Aldean on Aldean’s sold out arena headlining tour, “Wide Open.” In 2011, Bryan returned to Swiftel Center on his arena tour “Tailgate & Tanlines” for CMT On Tour. Bryan was nominated for Musical Event of the Year for “Buy Dirt,” featuring Jordan Davis.
In 2013, Florida Georgia Line kicked-off their first ever arena headlining tour at the Swiftel Center – “Here’s to the Good Times” – which sold out in less than 2.5 minutes. The duo was nominated for Vocal Duo of the Year.
In 2014, Dierks Bentley sold out the Swiftel Center on his arena headlining tour “Riser.” Bentley was nominated for Male Vocalist of the Year as well as Music Video of the Year for “Gone.”
In 2015, two of the 2021 CMA Award nominees hit the stage at the Swiftel Center for one epic night of country music. Little Big Town sold out the Swif- tel Center on their arena headlining tour “The Pain Killer,” bringing along special guest Maren Morris. Little Big Town was nominated for Vocal Group of the Year. Morris was nominated for Female Vocalist of the Year, Musical Event of the Year and Music Video of the Year, both for “Chasing After You.”
In 2016, two more of the 2021 CMA Award nominees performed on stage together at the Swiftel Center. Chris Young came on over to Brookings with his arena headlining tour “I’m Comin’ Over,” bringing along Dan + Shay. Young was nominated for Single of the Year, Musical Event of the Year and Music Video of the Year, all for “Famous Friends” featuring Kane Brown. Dan + Shay were nominated for Vocal Duo of the Year.
In 2017, Swiftel Center hosted several sold out concerts which featured three of the 2021 CMA Award nominees. In March of 2017, Miranda Lam- bert rocked the Swiftel Center with over 4,900 in attendance. In December of 2017, Thomas Rhett set the sold-out record for most concert attendees in Swiftel Center history with over 5,600. This was Rhett’s second time per- forming at the Swiftel Center; he opened for Jake Owen in 2014 on Owen’s first ever arena headlining tour “Days of Gold.” Rhett was nominated for Male Vocalist of the Year. Both Lambert and Rhett’s concerts were opened by Old Dominion who returned in 2019 on their own arena headlining tour “Make It Sweet,” bringing along special guest Jordan Davis. Old Dominion was nominated and won the award for 2021 Vocal Group of the Year. Davis was nominated for Musical Event of the Year for “Buy Dirt,” featuring Luke Bryan.
In 2019, Kane Brown sold out the Swiftel Center on his arena headlining tour “Live Forever,” bringing along special guest Jimmie Allen. Brown was nominated for Single of the Year, Musical Event of the Year and Music Video of the Year, all for “Famous Friends” featuring Chris Young. Allen was nom- inated and won the award for 2021 New Artist of the Year.

REAL ESTATE AUCTION
TWO PRIME POTENTIAL DEVELOPMENT GEMS SITUATED IN 2 SUPERB LOCATIONS
LOCATED WITHIN THE CITY OF PIPESTONE, MN
PARCEL #1 - Commonly known as the Brown Elementary School Property PARCEL #2 - Commonly known as the Hill Elementary School Property
We will offer both of the following real properties at auction at the site of Parcel #1 (Brown School Site) - which is located near the Junction of Hwy. #30 and 8th Ave. at 808 8th Ave. Southeast in Pipestone, MN.
FRIDAY MORNING, JANUARY 28, 2022 • SALE TIME: 10:00 AM
ATTENTION: Investors, Developers & Contractors!! Subsequent to the recent demolition of the former Brown School and the former Hill Elementary School, the Pipestone Area Public School District #2689 has declared both of these sites as surplus property, and in fairness and transparency to the district taxpayers has decided to offer both of these choice properties at public auction. Probably no better opportunity has occurred in recent years in the Pipe- stone, MN Community to purchase a parcel or parcels of land with any better location or development potential and the unique attributes afforded by these properties. Pipestone, MN is located in the Southwestern corridor of the State with a thriving multifaceted community in excess of 4,000 residents. It has an excellent K-12 Public School System, a post secondary education system afforded by Minnesota West Community & Technical College, a new and modern Pipestone County Medical Center & Family Clinic Avera, numerous manufacturing and agricultural re- lated industries with excellent employment opportunities, a variety of active retail and professional businesses, as well as the Historic Pipestone National Monument and other community demographics that draw thousands of tourists annually - all of which fuel the growing demand for future single and multi-family housing, commercial ex- pansion, and more! If you are in the market for land which has a great deal of present and future potential, especially if you desire to be a part of the future development landscape in Pipestone, MN, then make plans to attend this auc- tion. Until now, this property has not been on market, thus this auction awards a “Once in a Lifetime Opportunity” to purchase some of the few remaining sizable undeveloped parcels of land lying in the midst of Pipestone, MN. These properties have a great deal to offer to developers, investors, contractors and others in the market for prime investment land with locations which are second to none!!

As we enter 2022 and as a matter of review, we have considered a long series about the Psalmist’s concern about a nation’s existence – “If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?” (Ps11:3). We considered how America drifted decade by decade over the four centuries from its beginning,sometimes rising spiritually and then sinking into near unbelief. And sometimes, if not often, the na- tion waded, if not wallowed in its sin... as God defines sin.
That’s the perpetual course of nations – rebellion against God – drifting onto history’s trash heap. But man does not make a nation, God does. And He controls its destiny based upon whether it follows His will. The questions are when does He establish a nation and when does His patience with a nation’s darkness prompts Him to destroy it.
Just decades before God destroyed Judah, He declared, “The in- stant I speak concerning a nation and concerning a kingdom, to pluck up, to pull down, and to destroy it, if that nation against whom I have spoken turns from its evil, I will relent of the disaster that I thought to bring upon it. And the instant I speak concerning a nation and con- cerning a kingdom, to build and to plant it, if it does evil in My sight so that it does not obey My voice, then I will relent concerning the good with which I said I would benefit it” (Jeremiah 18:7-10). In short, God controls a nation’s existence – from birth to death!
Ancient Israel was God’s chosen nation. God divided it because of Solomon’s idolatry. Rather than put Solomon to death, God split the kingdom in two (Israel and Judah) (Deuteronomy 13; 1 Kings 11:4- 13). Now three hundred years later, Judah was in continuous rebellion to God’s order.
God’s prophet declared, “But this people has a defiant and rebel- lious heart; they have revolted and departed. They do not say in their heart ,“Let us now fear the Lord our God” (Jer 5:23-24). At the end of his speech, he revealed God’s intent, “Shall I not punish them for these things?’ says the Lord. ‘Shall I not avenge Myself on such a na- tion as this?’ (v29). And He did. Will the USA return to God and re- store the foundation or suffer destruction like Judah’s?
