November 8, 2007 Page 5 Halloween has come and gone along with the goblins and several others dressing in black! We live in a part of Beach where there are not many children but do enjoy the ones that come. The combining of sunflowers is likely the last of the 2007 crop to be harvested and that will soon be fin- ished, too. It's been fairly good combining weather, but the wind on some days raises the danger of fire because of the dust from sunflowers being highly flammable. Elaine Kremer was in Bismarck this week where she enjoYed attend- ing a family reunion and visited with their children and families, who live there. Holger and Marion Johnson attended the confirmation services at First Eutheran Church in Beach on Sunday and the potluck dinner honoring the four confirmants, which followed. Linda Stoveland and Jacob and Sammy also attended the services. Tracey Streitz and Linda Stoveland joined several others doing inventory at the Cenex Store in Beach on Wednesday. Tracey is employed there. Randy and Peggy (Nistler) Mosset of Bismarck are the proud parents of a baby boy, born on Thursday, Nov. 1. He has been given the name Mason Donald and joins a big brother. Grandparents Donald and Marie Nistler left for Bismarck on Friday and after a short visit with the Mossets, they will leave for Yuma, Ariz to spend the winter. By the time this column is read next week, the hunters will be arriv- ing for the deer season. One morn- ing, we saw seven deer walking down the street east of our house. They are rather hard on apple trees, etc. Tact is the ability to stay in the middle without being caught there. We've received word that a very nice contribution was given to the Sentinel Butte Cemetery Association. James Sr. and Mac Muckle donated some of their land in order to extend the size of the cemetery. So if you see the Muckles out and about, be sure to thank them for their generous donation. Don and Rella Abernethy and their daughter Bobbi Hansen from Belgrade, Mont returned to the Abernethy home Friday after Don's surgery. That evening, Sally brought supper. Those who enjoyed the delicious meal were Don and Rella Abernethy, Burns Abernethy, Bob and Sally Abernethy and Bobbi Hansen. Marvin Hansen arrived after that evening from Belgrade. Saturday, Jane Cook and Arlene Schmeling from Beach manned a table at the Medora Craft Fair at the Medora Community Center. Arlene and Jane are members of the Friends of the Chateau deMores and were there to encourage others to join the "Friends" group. As an incentive, they were selling bags of taffy that were made at the taffy shop in Medora, a couple of water- color prints from the collection of the Marquise, Medora de Vallombrosa, and note cards with a few of Medora's watercolor scenes as well. Sally Abernethy and Carl and Pat Svensen from Dickinson were visitors at the Don and Rella Abernethy home on Saturday. Jan Johnson, Arlys Flaig and Judy Johnson were some of the many visitors at the craft fair in Medora on Saturday. Saturday evening, Jane Cook attended the recognition dinner for Harvey Peterson at the American Legion Club in Beach. Bobbi and Mary Hansen left Sunday to return to their home in Belgrade, Mont after spending some time with Bobbi's parents, Don and Della Abernethy, and gramp, Burns Abernethy. Jim and Jan Johnson and Arlys Flaig attended the Fall Dinner at the EUB Church on Sunday. Buzz and Delores Olson, Sue Feldman and Brent, and Kurt and Bonnie Tigen were also at the Fall Dinner. Loretta Tescher, Don and Kathy Heise, Kerm Rink, and Jerry Cook were all Sunday visitors at the home of Don and Rella Abernethy. Sally Abernethy, Joedy Bragg and Don Miller were visitors at Don and Rella Abernethy's home on Monday. Jane and Mary Cook attended the "Why Catholic" series at the home of Francis Dietz. At least nine members were able to join this small group study Tuesday evening. The Sentinel Butte community and surrounding areas were again treated by the Olson family mem- bers with a delicious Halloween chili/chicken noodle supper. Among the many who were there were Jane Cook, her brother Jack Cook, his son and family, Scott, Lori and Angelina Cook, Jim and Marj Wyckoff, Francis Dietz, Jerry Cook and Kerm Rink. Apologies to the many that I can't remember or think of just now, as the turn out was really good. SallyAbernethy was a Thursday morning visitor at the Don and Rella Abernethy home. Later that day, Rex and Ann Cook from Dickinson, Mark Billierfrom Beach and Chuck White from Illinois stopped in to visit. Thursday evening, Sally Abernethy and Billie Van Horn brought supper to the Don Abernethy home. Among those who were able to enjoy the meal with Don, Rella, and Burns' were Bob and Sally Abernethy, Billie Van Horn, and Jim Cook. Pastor and Bev Maxted were evening visitors at the Don and Rella Abernethy home on Thursday. I'd like to wish a special Happy Birthday to Burns Abernethy who turned 100 years young, Nov. 4. I believe there may be an open house for him the Saturday after Thanksgiving, but contact Rella to be sure. Thought for the week: What you think of yourself is much more important than what others think of you. area If the presidential election were held today, Hillary Clinton would get the most votes from people responding to the latest Prairie Poll, although about half said they have not yet decided. Voters were asked a series of questions regarding the 2008 elec- tion. Participants were also asked specifically for their views on vot- ing for a woman or a minority. Respondents were asked to name both the Republican and Democratic candidate they would most like to see get a nomination. Rudy Guilani was the most fre- quently named Republican, with 16 percent of respondents, fol-- lowed by John McCain, named by 15 percent. Clinton was the most named candi- date on the Democratic side, with 24 percent of all respondents naming her, but 42 percent of those polled said they were undecided. John Edwards was the second most frequently named Democrat at 16 percent. Of the people polled, 28 percent said they normally vote Republican; 28 percent said they normally vote for Democrats; and 44 percent said they don't identify with either party. With a woman and a minority among the favored candidates for nomination for the first time, people were asked about the likelihood they would vote for either Clinton or Barack Obama. While Clinton is most often favored among all the candidates, there are many - 41 percent - who said they would never vote for her. Another 27 percent said they defi- nitely would vote for her and 32 percent said they were not sure. More overall respondents were s woul Clinton was the most named candi- date on the Democ- ratic side, with 24 percent of all respondents nam- ing her, but 42 per- cent of those polled said they were undecided. unsure about voting for Obama, at nearly 54 percent. Twenty-four percent said they definitely would vote for him and 22 percent said they would never vote for him The survey polled people served by community newspapers in Garrison, Watford City, Rolla, Kenmare, New Town, Crosby Stanley, Carrington, Grafton, Napoleon, Lake Metigoshe and Lisbon. Respondents from the New Town area were the most undecid- ed about who should get the Republican or Democratic presi- dential nominations. Watford City had the highest percentage of people, 56 percent, who said they could never vote for Clinton. Watford City also had the high- est number of people who said they could never vote for Obama, at 34 percent. People in Stanley and Grafton were least likely to say they could never vote for Obama, at 14 percent each. Of the people polled, less than one percent said they never vote.

Nonmembers are not taken in that area. A large portion of the remain- ing ground is composed of solid rock. If the cemetery is to be open to the general public for any length of time it will soon be filled up. It may be necessary in the near future to not allow nonmembers of the Lutheran Church to be buried in the cemetery for this reason. Belfield ought to find suitable ground to start a gener- al public cemetery. (The Catholic Cemetery was then located just east of the Lutheran Cemetery.) The Fryburg Pioneer newspaper was born on Oct. 10, 1913. The Imperial Hotel lease was sold by W. A. Mosher to Ed. Ziebarth and Ted Barrow. Mosher is to travel for a large eastern woolen mill.

Peterson are to open a store in Gorham. A man called AJ. Good, a vice preacher, is said to be not "good" by the Minneapolis police after Marshal Boltz checked up on him. Good writes Rev. Thorpe and says he is good, and Minneapolis police say he still isn't. And so it goes. L.E. Newton has a new barn going up. Fourty-eight head of cattle are stolen near Bowman by a middle- aged Russian and a young Norwegian but their trail seemed lost near Belfield. N.B. Nelson, ex- marshal, came across them and noti- fied authorities who came and found them and forced entry into a shack where the two men were sleeping. The Norwegian made no resistance to arrest but the Russian tried to escape even though he was hand- cuffed. The sheriffs were obliged to shoot, a bullet striking him in the wrist. There is an immense coal deposit at the Paul Gross mine just northeast of Belfield. The average depth is 11 feet and there is enough coal to last Belfield for 120 years. There is also an excellent stream of water from the mine. Belfield has two local cemeter- ies, Catholic and Lutheran. The town has no cemetery of its own.
