At the completion of the seventh round, the top 10 scores advanced to the next round. The 10 students who advanced were Jonah Stockert, Scott Lun t, Marshall Nunberg, Larissa Roberts, Morgan Nunberg. Brandon Stockwell, Danny Skoglund, Coy Obrigewitch, Bailey Waldal, Tyler Steffan and James Kary. The objective of the second round is to cut the number of contestants from 10 to two. They were eliminated from the competi- tion when they gave their second wrong answer. The students used a map to answer a question in this round. It took four rounds of questions to narrow the competition to two par- ticipants. The two students who advanced were Marshall Nunberg and Coy Obrigewitch. These two students went head to head with a clean slate in the championship round. They were given the same three questions and had to write their answers. Whoever had the most answers right would be the winner. The school champion was Coy Obrigewitch. Marshall Nunberg came in second, and Brandon Stockwell third. Coy will now take a written test in January. The state will take the top 100 scores, and.the students will come together to compete i0 the state geography bee in April. On Sunday afternoon, Dec. 7, the Dakota Kids 4-H Club met at the Golva School for their Christmas party. They baked and decorated the Christmas cookies for the Golva Bank open house day, which was on Dec. 13. There was a gift exchange followed by pizza and pop. Larry and Shirley Schulte joined other relatives and friends at the Wibaux County Nursing Home where they helped Shirley's morn, Florence Watembach, celebrate her 95th birthday on Sunday. On Wednesday evening, the Golva School Board, faculty and other employees of the school and their spouses enjoyed a Christmas dinner at the Golva Bar and Grill where Patti and "Co." prepared a delicious meal for them. The Christmas concert held at the Beach High School was well attended. It was fantastic and many of the students participating are from Golva and that means that many families from Golva were in attendance. Jacob and Sammy Stoveland were overnight guests of their grandparents, Gerald and Judy Curl on Wednesday night. Linda brought them to Beach after school where they were at the Legion Club, where they participated in firearm practice for 4-H. Then Jacob went to Wibaux for confirmation class at the Wibaux Lutheran Church. Sammy had sup- per with Gerald and Judy Curl; Jacob came back to Beach, and the next morning Larry Schulte picked them up for the ride back to Golva on the school bus. Drug Problem: I had a drug prob- lem when I was young. I was drug to church on Sunday morning. I was drug to church for weddings and funerals. I was drug to family reunions no matter what the weath- er. I was drug to the bus stop to go to school every weekday. I was drug by my ears when I was disrespectful to adults and teachers. I was also drug to the woodshed when I dis- obeyed my parents. Those "drugs" are still in my veins and they affect my behavior in everything I do, say and think. They are stronger than cocaine, crack and heroin, and if today's children had this kind of drug problem, America might be a better place.
