Jan. 30 A beautiful Celebration of Life was held in Golva at St. Mary's Catholic Church for our dear friend Christine Finneman. The church was decorated to honor her life. The pews were covered with the many quilts and blankets Christine had made throughout her years. They cushioned our benches just like "she cushioned our lives. The grand— kids carried in items that were sig- nificant throughout her life. A little white rocking chair was placed up front that she used throughout the lyears to rock her babies and grand- babies. Prayer books and pumpkins adorned a side table that signified her prayer life and pumpkin patch, which she _will forever be remembered for. Her daughter Michelle played the organ for the service and Christine's beloved men's choir added to the cel— ébration. The Rev. Berg and the Rev.

Sam Larson cele— When she was 14, Gjovik said, she had a friend who took his own life. “I didn’t know how to handle [the situation] ,” she said. “If I had more information, maybe I could have saved my friend.” e ' Gjovik said it was difficult for her to tell her family about what she was going through. “I didn’t want to let them down or see me struggle,” she said, adding that she believes the proposed legislation would help ed- ucate children on how they can help themselves as well as learn how to help their friends. Aimee Copas, executive director of the North Dakota Council of Ed- ucational Leaders,'testified in favor of the bill and detailed’how children are struggling today. Issues are often hidden, and “parents are not seeing what's happening or coming,” she said. “One of the things our kiddos see, that we didn’t see growing up, is the pervaSive use of social media.” Copas said children absorb media, and to them it paints a very different picture of the world. “Kids, they embody that and they may not tell you, and eventually it grows,” she said. “You pray when brated his birthday on Tuesday.

Starting during COVID-19, Awareness (Continued from Page 1) they have a breaking point they come to mom and dad, or go to a teacher, but sometimes they don’t and their breaking point is them doing harm to themselves.” Sen. Judy Lee, R-West Fargo, and chairwoman of the committee, said stressors on children are exacerbated during the pandemic, “particularly if it is a struggling family, with other pressures like job cuts or losses. Kids are in a sense held‘ prisoner in an envirdnment that is dysfunc- tional.” With students back in school, Lee said she believes the relationships between teachers and students are even more important. “Teachers are likely to be a link that’s even more important than it was one year ago,” she said. “All those social contacts, in the best sense, for a kid who does have friends that are supportive —- they haven’t been able to see them.” Lee noted that a child died by sui- cide recently in Fargo. The child was an athlete and Lee' said there was no reason for people to think there was an issue. ‘ Emma Quinn, who left Fargo at5 ’ am. on Feb. 9, to testify in favor of she really got thrown into way more than she could have ever imagined but has been such an asset here at the Manor. All three of these ladies are wished the very best and we hope that this year will .be an easier year for you all.

Donna had been recuperating away from the Manor for a couple of months and passed away on Wednesday, Feb. 3, at CHI St. Alexius Health in Dickin- son. Donna will be remembered for many things, but especially her love for crafting. She took part in activi- ties on a daily basis, and will always be remembered for her talent in mak- ing scrubbies. She had a competitive spirit when it came to games and ac- tivities, and she loved to play cards with the residents. Donna passed out pencils to the trick or treaters every year at the Manor, making her well known to all who visited her here. Chapel Lane has lost some very dear ladies, ones that will be dearly missed by us all. It is with a happy heart that I re- port we have been lucky enough to remain COVID free since our last scare. We are enjoying days of not being so confined and getting back into our activity routines. We sure look forward to seeing the faces of all our volunteers and friends again soon. What a joyous day that will be for us all. Have a blessed week and stay warm. the bill, also shared a personal expe- rience with the committee. “I started to struggle with my mental health at age 12, and started trying to take my own life at age 14,” she said: “It took me over 14 years to find the proper help for my mental health.” . As a mother, Quinn said, she now watches her own son struggle with the pressures of middle school, and she thinks education is the first step in helping children. “The last thing [children] are doing is talking to their parents about their mental health,” she said.

Game wardens issued more than 2,600 citations last year. Counties with the most violations were Ram— sey (320), Williams (163) and McKenzie (128). The most common violations and number issued were: - Boating (659): inadequate num— ber of personal flotation devices (261); use of unlicensed/unnumbered boat (138); and failure to display boat registration (108). 0 Licensing (515): failure to carry license (306) and huntin g/fishin g/ trapping without proper license (182). Small game (377)i using shot— gun capable of holding more than three shells (96) and exceeding limit (68). ' Fishing (315): aquatic nuisance . species violations (84) and exceeding limit (65). 0 Miscellaneous (227): criminal trespass (76); minor in possession (46); and possession of a controlled T I SCOREBOARD Game and Fish violations tallied substance (33). General (226.): hunting On posted land without permission (72); loaded firearm in vehicle (59); and use of motor vehicle in restricted area (47). - Big game (170): illegal tak- ing/possession of big game (72); tag- ging violations (17); and failure to wear fluorescent orange (15). - Wildlife management areas/refuge (165): PLOTS access vi— olations (60) and failure to obey posted regulations (57). , - Furbearer (21): use/possession of illegal snares (8) and harassing with motor vehicle (6). While wardens i3sued more than 2,600 citations in 2020, that number hardly compares to the number of people who were contacted by war- dens and no citations were issued. These license checks, boating safety inspections, public safety calls, wildlife issues, the list goes on, are as important as the number of citations issued, the NDG&F says. For in— stance, between Sept. 1, 2020 and Dec. 31, 2020, there were nearly 12,000 contacts made by game war- dens and about 1,000 citations is- sued. ON When Touchmark Founder and Chairman Werner G.
