IIII Downhill fun Jared Kohanes and Jordan Kohanes slide down Knox Hill west of Sentinel Butte along Old Highway 10 after the Christmas weekend blizzard, (Photo by Richard Volesky) Jan. 7,1960: Resident a skilled gardener Sylfest Oygaard, well known in Medora and Sentinel Butte, is now making his home at the beautiful new St. Luke's at Dickinson. He is pos- sessed of more than average skill in gardening, a fact which met with suit- ably publicity recently, when he was featured in a special story in the publi- cation "The St. Luke's Messenger." Ry Noyes forwarded the interesting article to the News recently. This spring they planted 8,000 shelterbelt trees at St. Luke's, and they are flourishing under Oygaard's care. He also helped cultivate and care for the big garden, which supplied the kitchen with fresh vegetables all last summer, and was also busy keeping weeds and dandelions out of the lawn there. He was born in Norway, and came to the U.S. when 21, arriving in Sentinel Butte in 1903, where he worked as a hired hand. Later he homesteaded and worked his farm, caring for his gardens and cattle for 15 years, developing his own irrigation system, which brought him good retums in even dry years. He then ranched in the Medora area, finally selling it because so many of his cattle were stolen by rustlers, los- ing 48 at one time.

Initially launched in 2008, the "I am Legendary" concept will be stronger with new creative execu- tion and will be more fully incor- porated into all communication elements with a fresh look and feel, according to the Tourism Division. "I am Legendary" will set the tone of all components in the 2010 cam- paign, with the development of three new TV ads, a print ad series promoting specific North Dakota experiences, a newly designed 2010 Travel Guide, a new 2010 Hunting & Fishing Guide and a "RULegendary" Web site landing page. "For almost a decade, we've been aggressively marketing North Dakota as a great place to live, work, play and conduct busi- ness. Of course, tourism focuses on playing here," said Shane Goettle, commissioner of the North Dakota Department of Commerce. "How fitting that as we celebrate a new year and a new decade, we kick off a brand new marketing campaign for North Dakota Tourism." "The shift from Legendary to "I am Legendary," personalized the campaign, allowing the viewer to not only be motivated by 'the brand, Milling Oats ............... $1.70 Feed Wheat ............... $2.50 Woody's Feed & Grain S. 7th Ave West Dickinson N.D. 701-225-5161 Annual Meeting Sentinel Rural Fire Protection District 8 a.m., Jan. 12 Health Unit Sentinel Butte Fire Hall Election of Directors to be held I schedule Billings/Golden Valley County health clinics for January will be held as follows: WIC at the Public Health Office, 9 - 12, 1 - 3 p.m., Jan. 13 (Please call for appointment schedul- ing). - Beach Senior Citizens Center, 10:30 - 12:30 p.m., Jan. 19.

"This next step taps into the desire people have to experience something truly unique, and we'll show them how they'll be changed by their North Dakota experience." Otte Coleman adds thai this application of Legendary is about the audience: connecting to them and drawing them out of their day- to-day lives. New for the 2010 campaign is the integration of a trackable Web component. All three TV ads and all the print ads in the series will direct the audience to a Web land- ing page. Those who decide to accept the challenges are asked to submit an online form and to share their efforts - and their North Dakota experiences - by submitting their videos, photos and stories. In addition to the "I am Legendary. RU2 " challenge, the Web site landing page will direct the audience to the North Dakota Tourism Web site to start planning trips. Audiences in Minnesota, Wisconsin, South Dakota, Montana and Canada are the tar- gets for the 2010 campaign efforts. This year's campaign will kick off with the outdoor-themed TV ad, along with the distribution of the 2010 Travel Guide and the 2010 Hunting & Fishing Guide. The remaining elements of the campaign will follow. (Continued from Page 1) election contest this year. A rumored Republican candidate for the posi- tion is Gov. John Hoeven. "Frankly, I think if I had decided to run for another term in the Senate I would be re-elected," said Dorgan. "But I feel that after serving 30 years, I want to make time for some other priorities. And making a com- mitment to serve in the Senate for the next seven years does not seem like the right decision for me. "So, 2010 will be my last year in the Senate. I will continue to work hard for the best interests of our state and country during this coming year. We need to get the economic engine restarted and put people back to work. We need to reform our finan- cial system to make sure that which happened to cause this deep reces- sion will not happen again. And we need to get our fiscal and budget policies under control. The federal budget deficits are not sustainable. But even as we face all of these dif- ficult issues, I am convinced that our country will rise to the chal- lenge." "Byron Dorgan has produced important and lasting results for North Dakota," said Sen. Kent Conrad, D-N.D. "Nationally he has been a foremost advocate for fair trade, fiscal responsibility, and eco- nomic growth. If his warnings had been heeded, the economic down- turn might well have been averted. Over and over, he has been proven right on economic policy, trade pol- icy and so much more. Although Senator Dorgan is leaving the Senate at the end of 2010, I have a feeling that this will not be the last of his public service. It is my guess he will be on a short list of future Cabinet nominees to the Obama administration in the coming years." $50 INSTANT REBATE Off The Original SUNHEAT Electronic Infrared Heater For a Limited Time get $50 off our most popular model SH1500 with Oak Finish ju.$399 after www.sunheat.com instant rebate SLASH YOUR HEATING COSTS The "must hav6" for :Easy to open i No plug-in or battery required 26-inch panoramic view  The very best news and you don't have to wait for it to download d;e No squinting on a tiny screen to see the photos  No need to turn it sideways to see it better Built-in gameslike crossword puzzles and sudoku !
