Page 16 Golden Valley News May 12, 2011 Golva News By Shirley Schulte The high winds and snowy weather seems to be the big story for the past week. The rummage and bake sale held at St. Mary's Church Hall was well attended on Friday evening, but Saturday was so stormy you couldn't even see the church. Sunday morning,the ladies had a $1 a bag sale that was taken advantage of by the few that were able to get to the church, but there was a large inventory left to be taken to a charitable organization. As soon as it was possible, Rick and Tyler Noll were very busy plowing snow for Goldenwest Electric so they could restore power to the area. They plowed late into the night for the city of Golva, help- ing to free as many people as possi- ble from behind the huge snow banks that blocked the streets and driveways and even doorways of many homes. Trees around town and a grain storage unit by the ele- vator were toppled by th wind. Many residents had to deal with flooded basements also, Linda Stoveland was in Bismarck with Judy and Gerald Curl from Thursday until Tuesday. Gerald was in the hospital from April 26 matil May 1.

On Friday evening, Larry and Shirley Schulte and Joe and Arlys Kreitinger went to Dickinson as del- egates to the Knights of Columbus Convention. Mike Kreitinger and Brian Dukart were the co-chairper- sons who spent many hours over the past couple of years organizing the convention that lasted from Friday evening until Sunday afternoon.

Raphael Finneman of Craig, Colo., was in this area on business this past weekend. He visited his daughter Sara and her husband Shawn Strangford and family at Ekalaka on Friday, and then came to Golva to visit his mother Christine Finneman.

Sentinel Butte News By Jane Cook purchaser and processor deducted from what Whiting was paid. Headington's Bismarck attorney, Lawrence Bender, said in court records that Headington admits that Bear Paw remitted gas royalties on its behalf, but denied Meshcke's other allegations. Matthew Kipp, a Fargo attorney representing the Oneok defendants, also denied the allegations and wrote Mineral (Continued from Page 1) that they deny having acted in any way so as to entitle Meschke to the recovery of any damages, and said that since the Oneok companies do not pay royalties to any owner in the Big Stick Madison Unit, they there- fore shouldn't be a part of the law- suit. Kipp also wrote that claims that post production costs and expenses may. not be deducted in calculating royalties are contrary to North Dakota law, and that Meschke's claims therefore are frivolous. All the defendant companies asked that the lawsuit be dismissed. Meschke's Minot attorney, Debra Hoffarth, didn't return a phone call seeking comment. No court hearing dates have been set .' 2011 BCP-GVN ....

Sunday morning, there was Word and Communion in the chapel. We had our second annu- al May Day barbeque and raffle from noon to 2 p.m. in the activity r o o m This is one of the big fund-raisers the Golden Valley Manor Foundation sponsors 'to raise monies for improvements to the Manor.

We had a very successful raffle, giv- ing away 15 prizes.

Verona Leckler from Bismarck took in the barbecue and raffle and visited Frances Kress. John and Wynona Foster visited with Margaret Allen. Carol Schmeling's son, Jim from Billings, Mont., visited as well. Community church services were in the chapel at 6:30. Ardyn Mattson led our Monday morning Bible Study.
