Page 8 February 4, 2010 Wow, what a snowy month we&apos;ve had. It's cold outside but warm in here. We are thankful for the long halls and activity room so we can take our walks inside. Thursday began with Mass, exercises, then we went downtown to do our errands, get groceries and other appointments. In the after- noon we had a Welcome 2010 party - we played games, did trivia about the new year, had chips, dip and sparkling cider. Friday morning we had our hair done by Gloria Hendry, Marlene Muruato and Lois Ferebee. We enjoyed having coffee and cookies in the dining room and our devotion time with Pastor Warren and Bev Maxted was in the evening. Kay Jones played the piano for us. Saturday morning exercises were led by Eileen Buchholz, and in the afternoon we played games while we had coffee. Word and Communion was held Sunday morning. Monday morning Bible study was led by Lorna Holzwarth. Phyllis Jessen visited her mother Pearl Olstad, and Bev Wolff's daughter, Dawn Egan, visited at the Manor in the afternoon. Tuesday morning we did our exercises, adoration followed in the chapel and in the afternoon we made yellow roses and green leaf mints for our tea on Thursday. Pastor Dave and Renee McGuillion led devotions in the evening. Helen Reiter celebrated her birthday today, and Linda Tvedt visited Juanita Baird. We enjoyed the mas- sages Marlene gave us in the after- noon. Wednesday, Deb Weninger visit- ed her mother, Marvel Musselman; they enjoyed visiting in the activity room with other Manor friends. Today we are featuring Pearl Olstad. Her information was pro- vided by her daughter, Phyllis Jessen. Pearl Irene was born on a hot July 14 day at her aunt Mary's homestead north of Sentinel Butte. Her parents were Loyd and Lena Yates. When Pearl and her mother could travel, they went by horse and buggy to their homestead in the hills. She was her mother's little helper, making pies, reading, and learning to sew clothes for her dolls. Her parents moved west of Sentinel Butte where she graduated as valedictorian. She went to Rochester, Minn., after graduation to work and visit family and then moved back home to work at the old Sentinel Butte Hotel until she married Harmon Olstad in Wibaux, Mont., on Halloween. They made their home a mile from where she grew up. She and Harmon would raise five children on a ranch by Graner Creek and later moved to the Stoddard ranch, which would become their home with modern conveniences. Pearl was active in Eastern Star and finally served as Worthy Matron. After losing her husband, she came to live in Beach where she finally had time to begin her oil painting. Her family has been the recipients of her labor of love. She also has designed many beautiful quilts over the years and still has the ironing board and sewing machine set up in her room at the Manor, where she has lived for several years. She has made quilts for all her family and is now making one for her great-great granddaughter. Pearl has been one of our featured resident artists at the Manor, and we treasurer her and her talent. The blizzard that came through last weekend managed to close schools and some businesses down for a day or two. Though the storm was pretty well done by mid-morn- ing on Monday in Golden Valley County, many of the roads still had to be plowed out for residents to be able to get out. Rick Olson, who drives the school bus for the Billings County School District, didn't have to go in on Monday and Tuesday, as the Medora school was closed. But he and a handful from the Sentinel Butte area, which included Val Obrigewitch, Dean Van Horn, Dennis Dietz and Pete Novotny, were busy plowing streets, alleys, and in some cases, driveways. Darrell Feldman, Keith Farstveet, Bob Lee and Barry S chafer spent Wednesday after- noon at the home of Don and Rella Abernethy. Nancy Schafer joined all of them later for supper. Dean Wyckoff from Billings, Mont., arrived at the home of his parents, Jim and Marj Wyckoff, on his way to participate in the Devils Lake Fishing Derby. Thursday, Grace Cash traveled to Dickinson to spend the day with her aunt, Ida Schaeffer, at St. Benedict's Health Center. Jim and Marj Wyckoff drove to Woody's Feed & Grain S. 7th Ave West Dickinson N.D. 701-225-5161 Please support your local merchants Ribl00Ynee00 Special! 5-9 p.m., Feb. 5-6 Join us on Feb. 7 Super Bowl Party/ All you can eat and $30 Snow! Kept waiting for the storm that was forecast for last Friday and then on Saturday when it finally came, it was much worse than anticipated. We were soon snowbound. The patio doors on the east were completely covered and to see out, I stood on a stool. We have five doors by which we can go outside and all were snowed shut. On Tuesday, we were finally liberated. Had plenty of food and no power outages. Bernie Schillo is doing much better after being taken to St Alexius Hospital in Bismarck last week. Tom and Vidette Schillo, Jim and Mary Ann, Chuck, Teresa of Reno and other members of the family have been .in Bismarck to be with Melissa, Kjersten, Kelsey, Peder and Desiree Michels, while he has been hospitalized. Jim and Mary Ann were leaving after school on Friday to go back to Bismarck. There are probably others who have been there tobe with the family and if so, I apologize for not naming them. We are also so glad that Bernie is better. Jenny R0st was a surgical patient at St. Alexius Hospital in Bismarck for a few days. Mike and Doris Berger brought her back to Dickinson earlier this week. Harry Zachmann has also been a patient at St Alexius, and we wish him well. The prayer line at Golva has been activated for Veronica Susa of Grafton, who is having knee sur- gery. She is the daughter of the late Martin and Gertie Susa of Golva. There was no school at the Golva School on Monday because of the storm. Several residences in the area were without power, too. I have saved some good news until the last. Former resident, Dr. Elaine Moen and her husband, Brian Sperl of Indianapolis are the proud, parents of twin baby girls. They arrived on Jan. 8, and Mom and girls are doing fine. They have been given the names of Medora and Ericka. Congratulations to them all. From the lessons of life by a 90- year-old I quote: "You don't have to win every argument, agree to dis- agree. It's never too late to have a happy childhood; but the second one is up to you and no one else."

Wibaux on Friday to visit with Jim and Fern Bacon. Jim is recuperat- ing at the Wibaux County Nursing Home after hip surgery. Don and Rella Abernethy drove to Killdeer on Friday to visit with Burns Abernethy at the Hill Top Home. Lisa and Gabe Wyckoff from Billings, Mont., arrived at the home of Jim and Marj Wyckoff Friday evening. On Saturday, Lisa and Gabe went to spend time with her parents, Marvin and Janice Scherman. Thought for the week: There comes an hour of sadness with the setting of the sun, not just for the sins committed, but for the things I have not done. Feb. 4, 1960: Publisher home after surgery Walt Bratton, publisher of the Golden Valley News and the Billings County Pioneer, returned to his apart- ment in Beach last Thursday from Rugby, where he spent about two weeks convalescing at the home of his mother, Mrs. L. H. Bratton. His broth- er-in-law, Frank Homstein, publisher of the Rugby Tribune, drove Bratton's car home. Homstein returned home the fol- lowing day, taking a plane from Dickinson to Minot, and going via car from there to Rugby, with Bill Kurkoski of Beach taking him to the Dickinson airport in Mr. Bratton's car. The latter is still very weak from his long illness and lung surgery, but is gaining slowly in strength each day, but must not be too active for several weeks yet. Sentinel Butte tower topples One of the three large U. S: Bureau of Reclamation towers atop sentinel Butte collapsed during the night this Monday, Feb. 1, probably from the heavy coating of frost and high winds. The ponderous structure was thought to have been securely built and braced. It is believed that the guy wires on the southwest side of the tower gave way first. With the heavy weight of the frost coating and the wind, the tower, erected this past year, crumpled, and fell to the ground, a twisted and broken heap. Several employees of the U. S. Bureau of Reclamation came out to inspect the damage Tuesday afternoon [Agr!n/enoSU rance Disappointed with CD interest rates?

Burglar nabbed Lee Collins, who gave his address as Mobridge, S.D., was nabbed by an alert policeman in Dickinson last Thursday, Jan. 28, when'Sgt. Bud Westrum took him into custody, after Westrum noticed the pickup truck driven by Collins, and recognized it as one reported stolen from Glendive. Collins had burglarized the Super Valu Store in Beach, owned by Walt Schweigert, the night before, when he took a large quantity of cigarettes and other tobacco products, passing up about $60 in cash. Sheriff Ray Zinsli of Beach gave the tip off about the stolen truck, after he investigated the break-in at the Beach store, and heard of the missing 1955 truck, linking the two to the same person or persons. The break-in at the Super Valu store was set at about 3 a.m., as that was the time that Mrs. Ruth Brice, manager of the Hospital Annex, directly behind the Super Valu store, reported heating strange noises coming from the direction of the store. Zinsli went to Dickinson on Friday moming, where FBI officials were present at a heating, and Collins was turned over to Zinsli, who brought him back to Beach, where he is now in jail. The cigarettes were in the truck, and were retumed to Beach with the prisoner. Collins was given a heating on Saturday afternoon, Jan. 30, where Collins entered a plea of guilty to the burglary charge, and was bound over to District Court. Glendive officials came to Beach this week, and FBI men are also inter- ested in Collins, who probably will have to serve time for the theft of the pickup, a grand larceny, after complet- ing his sentence on the Beach burgla- ry charge.
