Page 8 Golden By Nancy Schafer Thursday morning began with Mass in the chapel. We exercised with Lorna in the activity room and some of us took the bus downtown for errands and shopping. We tried to coax spring into arriving with a "Come on Spring" party in the afternoon. Loma shared some readings about spring; we all dressed in bright, colorful clothes and talked about how we couldn't wait to get outside in the spring when we were ygunger to play games like kick the can and anti I over! We had real flowers for our tables and drew numbers to take them back to our rooms. The lucky winners were Gertrude Jacobs, Frances Kress, Jowayne Nunberg and Vivian Murphy. Carol and Val Obrigewitch and Penny Tescher were visitors of Lorraine Tescher's. Alan and Linda Helchus were also visitors at the Manor. Our Friday morning hair ladies were Gloria Hendry, Judy Ridenhower and Marlene Muruato. There are lots of us who are so appreciative of these faithful ladies who come to do our hair each week. Kay Jones' daughter and son in law were visitors. Jeff Dobrowski was here in the afternoon to take our annual group picture. Loretta Wyckoff led our Saturday morning exercises. We had our Sunday morning Catholic service in the chapel. Carol and Steve Miske from Washington state, and Charles Miske of Wibaux visited Florence Miske. Ted and Jowayne's visitors were Marijan and A1 Nunberg and Cindy and Dan Sullivan from Glendive, Mont. Don Brengle led our Monday morning Bible Study. Tuesday morning, we exercised with Nancy followed by Word and Communion in the chapel. Cheryl Planert came for a Visit on Tuesday afternoon; we sang along with her to hymns and a couple of love songs in recognition of two of our couples' special wedding anniversaries! We celebrated with John and Thelma Stull on their 70th wedding anniver- sary and with Lester and Ruby Tisor for their 72nd wedding anniversary with nuts, mints and cake and cof- fee. How very special it is to have these two couples celebrating such milestone anniversaries! Judy Ridenh0wer and Jill Tescher from the Beach Evangelical Church came for our Tuesday evening devotions. Wednesday afternoon we enjoyed bingo with Eldora Dahl in the activity room. Richard Lynn from Wibaux visited with Kay Jones. Our newest friend who lives at the Manor is Grace Johnson, who was born in Regina. Sask.. on Jan. 6, 1923. Both of her parents came from England. Her dad was a streetcar conductor and her mom was a stay at home mom. Grace attended grade school, high school and business school in Regina. She married Leonard Johnson in Regina. He was a crew foreman for an oil field drilling company and because of that they moved around a lot. He was a part of the first oil wells drilled in both Alaska and North Dakota. They had four daughters: Lois Smith who lives in Winnipeg, Canada; Merle Gratz and Barbara Froelich, both of Dickinson, and Audrey Kuntz of Belfield. Grace has 17 grandchildren, 36 great-grand- children and one great-great-grand- child. She enjoys knitting, playing pool, reading and playing games and cards. They moved to Belfield in the 1960s, then to Dickinson and back to Belfield. They spent 15 years in Texas. Leonard passed away in March 2010. Grace moved into the Manor in February. She likes living at the Manor. There is always someone there if she needs help and everyone is so nice, she said. We are already enjoying her friendliness, teasing mannerism, and sense of humor, and welcome her to our Manor family. Round Ball Fever By Bob Waldal Jack Cook and his mom, Mary Cook, left Friday to travel to Glendive to visit Mary's sister, Rose Schreiber. The two stayed the week- end with Rose, visiting with her and some of her children. Keith Farstveet and Darrell Feldmann were visitors at the Don and Rella Abernethy home on Friday. Dan Cash returned home Saturday from Oklahoma City after saying good-bye to an army buddy. Dan was able to visit with his friend before the gentleman passed away, then attended the funeral before coming home. Sunday, Billie Van Horn, Bob and Sally Abernethy, Barry and Nancy Schafer, and Jodey Bragg were visitors at the home of Don and Rella Abernethy. Sally and Billie also brought supper out with them. Rella Abernethy underwent shoulder surgery in Bismarck on Tuesday for a torn rotor cuff. They stayed with daughter LaDonna Fallgatter that week, then left for home on Friday. Grace Cash has been helping take care of her aunt, Ida Schaeffer, in Dickinson. Ida has been living at Evergreen. but will temporarily be at St. Benedict's to recover from an illness. Wednesday, Jane Cook traveled to Dickinson on business, and then had lunch with her friend, Coleen Hanes, at the Country Rose Cafr. producers regarding the need and value of a new, updated study. Hoeven has been working with her and the North Dakota Geological Survey office to bring estimates up to date in order to attract new investments in development and infrastructure for both the state and North Dakota's reservations. The 2008 USGS study identi- fied more than 2 billion recover- able barrels of oil in the Bakken formation with far more than that in place. Many companies operat- Study (Continued from Page 1) ing in North Dakota have expressed to Hoeven their belief that there are significantly more recoverable reserves. In order to warrant a revised study, the USGS needs current data from oil com- panies operating in the Williston Basin regarding their production curves, recovery rates, the new technologies they are employing and any new geological analyses available. "Timely updates are an impor- tant part of attracting investments not only in new oil development. but also in the associated develop- ment needed to support growing communities," Hoeven said. "It will help bring oil resource devel- opment to oil companies, but it will also help bring infrastructure, housing, restaurants, and other service businesses to communities both on and off the reservation." Questions regarding the meet- ing should be addressed to Julie Fedorchak in Senator Hoeven's Bismarck office. (701) 250-4483. News April 7, 2011 Donna Sygulla had medical appointments on Monday. She said they made it to Dickinson, but there were a lot of vehicles in the ditch, and the roads were very icy on the trip down. I had ~/medical appointment in Bismarck that day also, but turned around and returned home. When I called to reschedule they were not surprised since several patients had called in ahead of,me, saying that by Belfield and Glen Ullen the roads were nearly impassable because of the snow and ice. Joe and Arlys Kreitinger are grandparents for the fifth time. Scott and Jamie Kreitinger became parents for the first time on Saturday, March 26, when 9 pound, 7 ounce Elijah Paul was born in St. Joseph's Hospital in Dickinson. Bernice Kreitinger of Golva is the great-grandmother. Duane and Bobble Maus spent a week in Fort Myers, Fla., taking in some of the sights, and watching the Minnesota Twins during spring training. They said they hated to return to our cold weather after basking in the warm Florida sun- shine. Mike and Becky Kreitinger and family spent Mike's 30th birthday at his parent's home in Golva. His mother Arlys invited his grand- mother Bernice Kreitinger, and his godmother Mary Weinreis, her hus- band Jerry and family to join them for a delicious meal. Friends in the area will be pleased to hear that Raymond Barthel is home and doing well. His son Tim took him to Billings for a check-up last week. His lung is healing, and his doctor tells him that no chemotherapy will be nec- essary. He is anxious to get back to mowing grass and etc., but maybe not for a few more weeks. Duane and Lynn (Finneman) Keller of New Salem have a new grandson. He was born to Andrea (Keller) and Jason Suthimier. Though the little lad has not been named at this writing, grandpa Duane calls both of his little grand- sons "his Little Charlie's." The KeUers are now proud to have two grandsons and two granddaughters. Great-grandmother Christine Finneman jokes that she can't count the number of great-grand- children she has, even if she uses both her fingers and her toes. Mike and Doris Berger went to Bismarck to visit Doris' mother Liz Finneman and consult with Doris' eye specialist. They appreciate the hospitality of John and Jo Finneman, who always have a "Bed and Breakfast"' ready for them when they visit. Katie Schmeling has toured some universities and i~ excited about deciding to enroll at NDSU this fall to pursue a career in nurs- ing, Golva H II again the 'Tiger Den' It seems like in today's world that "guccess" ]s measured by how much money is made in our daily lives or events. About a week ago, our Booster Club ran an invitational basketball tournament tO raise money for the club only to donate the money earned back to our stu- dents who participate in extracurric- ular activities. For all monetary purposes, it sure looked like a success with the number of teams that played in Golva and Beach and the number of parents and fans who supported the tournament. The roots of its suc- cess really came from the people in the trenches who prepared the gyms, and then there are the gather- ing of teams, officials and workers. And don't forget about concessions and the list goes on and on. It's exhausting and we can only say "high five" to all of you who put in that kind of an effort. Another "high five" are to the folks who pitched in and without that almighty dollar factor. To me that was the measurement of suc- cess for the tournament and watch- ing the kids play was the bonus. This is just one more example of the strength of our communities and the rewards of working together. The little things that the Booster Club and our parents do for our children are very special. You are the ones who have brought back some community pride and spirit that we so desperately needed. You are all about team and the sacrifices that go with it. Isn't it rewarding when everyone works together and that the game itself is really insignificant? That goes back when I would tell our players that they won't remember so much about our games but they will remember the person next to you and the times well spent together. Someday, they will want to do the same thing for their children that you did for them. Oh, and by the way, our kids had the time of their life and they weren't even at their PlayStations or sitting in front of the TV. (The "Tiger Den" that was nick- named 40 years ago was jumping with enthusiasm once again. Lori Howard commented that it was so nic~ to see all the people back in the gym. Many of us would "ditto" that statement. Wasn't that fun!) big trac~s there. He rode a horse to a fourth-place finish a few days ago at the Bay Meadows track in Oakdale, Calif. He is 24 years old, and is married to a local girl, the former Grace Hellickson.
