Page 6 Golden Valley News August 2, 2012 Sentinel Butte News By Jane Cook Golva News By Shirley Schulte Relatives gathered at the home of Larry and Shirley Schulte on Sunday to visit with Cheryl Dyer Vargas from Texas. She is the granddaughter of former residents, Nell and Ida (Wehrman) Kane. The Kane's were janitors at the Golva School years ago. Cheryl's Dad, Jim Dyer was the contractor hired to build the Parish House at St. John's Catholic Church in Beach. Those gathering to visit were Irvin and Virginia (Wehrman) Bares from Beach, Delbert and Jean Schulte from Glendive, Darrel and Heidi Schulte and family from Hebron and Jerry and Susan Erlenbusch from Circle. Cheryl came to attend her class reunion that was being held in Glendive that weekend. Mike Bostyan from Denver, CO and his daughter Becky Lilly and three children from the Washington DC area came to spend some time with Grandpa Joe Bostyan, Mike's brother Rick and his family, and the Rising families. Steve Rising and his daughters Rachel and Brandi from Arizona were here vis- iting also. Jacob and Sam Stoveland were among those attending the Luther League Youth Gathering at New Orleans, LA. Page Rising, Lexi Nistler, Kayla Howard, Katrina Shumway and Karl Schmeling from Golva were among the girls attending volley- ball camp this past week in Beach. A coach from DSU was here to conduct the camp. Some residents in the Golva area are reporting that they got around two inches of rain in the past week. Some had,more, others a little less, but it was sure a wel- come sight to see those nice big drops falling from the sky. Lightning was responsible for tak- ing out a few phones and starting a fire in the area. A hay bale was struck near the Shumway residence and everyone was grateful that about three inches of rain fell to help put the fire out and keep it from spreading to the nearby bales. Marie Nistler had knee replace- ment surgery in Bismarck on Monday. On Wednesday, when asked how she was doing, she replied "so far, so good". We hope she continues to improve, and will be back to running foot races soon. Gary Maus had back. surgery recently. Brenda says he is back to working more than he should be. I guess you can't keep a good man down. Wibaux County Nursing Home News By Sandy He/vik Wow! Can you believe we are into the month of August already? The fairs will be going on, fall sports practices, and then school. The Golden Valley Fair will be the first weekend in August. They have lots of fun things planned, so check it out. The Nursing Home is serving a breakfast on Saturday, August 4th from 7:00am to 10:30am. Come and join your friends and neighbors at their Community Center. Have you heard - our Boiler Fundraiser has reached over the $60,000.00 mark. We do appreci- ate the many people and organiza- tions who have helped make this possible. Because of the hot weath- er being so hot, our repair guy has been delayed but, we expect him anyday. The hot weather has affected everything, as they have cancelled a couple of Friday outings with the residents due to the heat. A sing-a- long was held as no one was inter- ested in going out. The monthly birthday party was also "hot" as Kaci decorated the residents cake to look like fireworks exploding. Every week the residents play bingo so if you can help out call Jeanie, Debbie, or Carla. The August resident birthdays will be Beverly Remillong from the Beach area and Dorothy Cretsinger from the Baker area. Our employ- ee birthday is Tandra Stedman. Happy Birthday to you all. Our Employee Fundraiser for the flooring project is also moving along nicely. So far we have sold over 600 cookbooks. And, we still have more to sell if you'd like one. We'll be selling books at the break- fast and at the Wibaux fair. And, don't forget to look at the beautiful quilt which will be on display at both events also. Linda Halverson, Exie Hafele's daughter made the quilt with all proceeds, from the chances sold, to go to our Boiler Fund. Tom Horn shared his musical talents with the residents on July 29th. Our new DON has arrived! Lillian Silvers has joined us at Wibaux County Nursing Home. Welcome! I'll let Lillian get settled in and then I'll write more about her. Manor News By Lorna Holzwarth History's Headlines Jane M. Cook August 2,1962 Late Wed. afternoon, July 25, as Ray Rue (an employee of Buster Finneman of Golva) was about to have the supply tank filled on the pickup by the Farmers Union truck from Bowman, the propane sudden- ly burst into flames, spraying Dale Olson, the driver of the Farmers Union truck, and Frank Fish, farmer of Mannarth, for whom thy were 0rnbining, and all suffered bums of varying degrees. Several men from the State Game and Fish Dept., along with game warden, Ed Bry of Belfield checked Odland's dam with traps and gill nets Wed. morning and found that very few of the 30,000 fingerling trout released there this spring are still in the dam. L. A. Barrow, as he is best known by his initials, has been with the N. P. Railroad company better than 46 years and has been stationed at Beach for the past 29 years, says it is with regret and sadness that he is retiring. Local grading and structure work on Interstate Highway 94, just west of the city of Wibaux is now pro- gressing very satisfactorily, accord- ing to an official of the Albert Lalonde Company, who maintain temporary office headquarters in Wibaux; Free workshop will be held at LaPlaya Restaurant It is no surprise that more wealth is coming to North Dakota families due to oil and gas leasing and drilling. Coupled with increased personal wealth in the region and lower return on investment through traditional sources, more and more people are seeing private invest- ment as a means to capitalize small business start up and growth needs in the region with a potential to get a better return on their investment. Often private investment comes through professionally run invest- ment organizations, but in the case of personal private investment from friends and family members, often- times the minimum requirements set by the North Dakota Securities Commission are being overlooked. On Wed., August 8th Money, Investments and Securities will be presented at LaPlaya Restaurant in Beach, ND, from 11:30 - 1:00 dur- ing a Lunch N Learn session. Michael Steve, Small Business Development Center, will present simple steps to help "test the waters" with the Securities Commission and ensure that invest- ments are handled properly from their perspective. This session is targeted to small businesses, private investors (family and friends) as well as the profes- sionals serving these clients such as attorneys, accountants, business planners and lenders. Anyone considering private investment or arranging for private investment to start a business will want to attend. This presentation is sponsored by Prairie West Development in cooperation with the Strum Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation through a U.S. Economic Development Administration grant and the Small Business Development Center. It is free and open to the public. Mementos (Continued from Page 1) tennial. Igear Quality Products out of Mandan were contacted to make the key chains, and 1,000 were made up for the people.

Rella Abernethy, her daughters, LaDonna Fallgatter and Bobbi Hanson, and their entire families enjoyed the many relatives and friends who helped, or just stopped in to share their condo- lences. Among them were Jack and Norma Kastien from Seattle, Wash., Janet Simmons from Austin, Texas, Clark and Debbie Pearson from Whitehood, Sask., Run and Mona Kramer from Leoti, Kansas, all of Rella's sib- lings and members of their fami- lies, all too numerous to mention.

They also visited with Judy Kahl and Run Burman who also stopped in at the Nistler's for a visit. Thursday morning Jane Cook drove to Dickinson to be inter- viewed on KLTC radio by person- ality, Paul Quinn, about her mys- tery novel. She enjoyed the friendly people there, and the easy way Mr. Quinn had that helped her feel comfortable on the air. (Except for one quick moment when the gentleman stated, "Nothing to worry about; just for- get that thousands of people will be listening to you!" Thanks a lot, Paul. Maybe I should a write a mystery about a radio host who disappears?) Afterwards, cousin, Jim Samuels treated Jane to lunch at the Elks, while another friend later took her to supper. Friday morning.
