Judy Johnson from Wolford: Les mentiioned to me that you requested information about Judy Johnson in the emails that you send out. By the way, I would enjoy receiving your blog emails…as it seems you have developed something really interesting for those of us from the Wolford, Rolette, Dunseith, Nanson, Omeemee areas. What a wonderful surprise hearing from you. I too am a graduate, but from Dunseith.
You probably know a lot of my class mates. Do you know if her mother is still living? It would be nice if we could locate her. You too, Like your brother Les, are and auctioneer. Les and Myra live directly across the street from my brother Bud and his wife Debby in Bottineau. Reply from Neola Kofoid Garbe: I agree with everyone who says Ed Milligan looks so young—he looked much older when I took class from him at the School of Forestry, The date was my error.
I guess the old brain was taking a break when I added the date!! In one of the classes I took from Mr. Milligan, I was the only girl in a class of Korean Vets. However, I was a very naive girl, and when Mr. Milligan would say anything that might cause me to blush, the vets turned to look at me, and then I really blushed.
My mistake was sitting in the front row the first day of class, and I had blushed several times at comments that were made. They were great fellows. It was a fun year. If my memory is correct, except for the nursing students, this particular year, there were 3 girls enrolled—at least for one of the quarters, maybe more. Reply Dick Johnson It appears Ed Milligan made quite an impression on lots of people. I think he lived in the Woods Hotel on the west side of Main Street. One winter quarter I stayed in Bottineau and went to college.
I used to walk from Brander Street uptown to Saunders Cafe once in a while for a supper meal. Ed walked over from the hotel and ate there often. His T Bird was nearly always parked in front of the cafe, across form the hotel.
I remember how he nearly always wore his maroon and black vets club jacket, the same as the student vets. He was proud of his association with the club. Now it makes sense. I remember a story Ed told us in history class that really had everyone listening closely.
He said there was a blizzard in the early s and Bottineau came to a complete stop. A guy rented a room on the third floor of the Stone Hotel and stayed there for three days as the storm raged on. The heat finally gave up and the hotel froze up on the second day. On the third day the guy got out of bed and went over to the window overlooking Main Street. Ed said the guy took a coin and scraped the frost off the inside of the window and looked down on the street below.
Somewhere we have an article about Ed Milligan and some of his interesting historical findings opinions about this area. The picture of Ed with the head dress is most surely not from My guess is or before. The date is probably from a reprint of the picture. I remember fondly their family there were 13 children if memory serves me coming to our farm-we always had more then enough players to play softball.
Donna, That is my mistake. I know that Pam 78 is your Sister. I have made the correction. Thank you so much, Gary. I simply had to tell you how proud I am of those folks in North Dakota, especially the people in and around Fargo and up and down the Red River. It makes me smile kinda knowingly to myself when I hear some news reporter talking to someone working at the area where the flood is expected. They simply say that they are pretty sure things will be okay It was the same last year.
People from other states can look to the. Fargo folks for an image of real independence with a calm humility so very apparent to anyone who visits the great state.
Perhaps the high plains, with its hard winters, and unpredictable summer weather along with the tradition of the early settlers has created a breed of people that are far above average and an independent spirit without equal. Did the Vikings make their way to the Turtle Mountains a thousand years ago? I also found your information about ancient Lake Agassiz and the Vikings fascinating. In any case, I had never heard of Lake Agassiz and found lots of very interesting stuff on the web about this particular era in our geological history.
I heard about these men hunting in the Hurdsfield, ND area for bird hunting… there were quite a few Hollywood types who came to the Dakotas to hunt while we lived there, raymond burr did it regularly so maybe he brought friends with him.
We extend our condolences to all of her family. She was one of the Turtle mountain anchors indeed. She will be missed. I spoke to Dawn Yesterday.

Larry Nagel Former Teacher: What a nice surprise, Larry Nagel visited us today, we had a nice talk about his stay here in Dunseith and telling us about his life at home. He lives on a farm and he still teaches school three days a week Hs is supposed to be retired but he keeps getting deeper and deeper into different jobs, like school bus driver , on the board of cenex, on the board of student drivers,etc.
Larry was my teacher in typing class, as I did not take it in high school, I worked in the office at Pride Dairies and had to do typing, He was a very good teacher and still is good. Memories from Ardys Bakken Horner former teacher: Hi everyone, we are home after 4 weeks in Arizona, came back to cool weather but much less snow.
My first husband, Arv Bakken, used to hunt and walk our German Shorthair up in the hills, looking for agates, arrows etc while the dog ran…. Ed was always a good source of information and stories. Memories from Keith Pladson I too remember him. I had worked there for a couple of years and Mr.
Milligan became a frequent customer of mine. Anyway, what I mostly remember about him was his absolute conviction that there had been early European visitors to the Turtle Mountain area.
Though I do not now remember him mentioning the mooring stones, I do very well recall him telling me on more than one occasion about the cave in the foothills and the Gothic stonework. Milligan and the cave and such until Dick mentioned it. I too, remember Mr.
It all started after my youngest son, DJ was born in I ended up throwing away all my trophies, except my crystal bowl. They all tarnished so bad, that they could not not be cleaned. I still have my 35 lapel bowling pins. Now, Beckie bowls on a couple leagues up in Wisconsin.
Dave Mettler is a farmer west of Bottineau. He and my brother Bud Darrel are farming neighbors. The often times help each other. Posted by Neola Kofoid Garbe: He is now deceased.

On the other hand, I really want be in Dunseith on May Thanks again for the message.
Folks, I received a message from Brenda Hoffman that she will be attending the reunion too. She said she will most attend following the dinner sometime. Both Brenda and Gwen, as I understand it, will pretty much be in the area for just the week-end. This will be a whirl wind trip for both of them, with each coming from separate coasts too. Gwen from Washington and Brenda from South Carolina. We are excited to see them both. From Dick Johnson With the reunion fast approaching, I thought it might be good for me to mention the type of entertainment we will be providing for those in attendance.
We plan to play songs from all decades and all types and intermix the songs in each set. We hope to have an area near the band where folks can dance. The current plan is to play sets of about 40 minutes and take a 20 minute break so everyone can visit—including us. At this time we are open to suggestions too. This should be a fun time for everyone in attendance! Folks, we are so fortunate to have Dick providing us with their entertainment.
I have heard nothing but outstanding reports of their music. They aim to please of which they accomplish very well. Dick is great at keeping things spiced up a bit too. Dick has offered their services for free. Being part of us, he said this is something he wants to do.
I have had several personal messages asking if we plan on compensating Dick and the Highway 43 band. The answer to that question is yes. We plan on having a donation Jar at the registration table for Dick and his folks. I too personally feel they should be compensated.
Not all of the Highway 43 band members are Dunseith Alumni and they too have agreed to provide their services for nothing. What a wonderful group. The ice fishing pictures Randy sent in brought back delightful memories. Randy is right, ice fishing what a catch! Guess it nice to just be happy wherever you are and count the blessings of just being. Brian Fauske — I am delighted to hear about their wonderful day and how happy they are. Fishing Memories of Minnie Flynn Anyway, I just stopped by to see how they were doing and they had caught some nice fish.
I asked Marlene what they brought along for bait? The good old days. Just wanted to respond to your gracious expression of sympathy. Thank you for your genuine concern and caring. My heart is broken while I praise God for the amazing gift Stanley was to me. I will love him always and miss him forever. You have been a good and faithful caregiver to her for several years now.
It is such an inspiration to me to see how important those wedding vows are in a loving marriage. You are certainly a special God given gift to her.
It is totally heroic the way you care for her. Take care of you too. May God richly bless you. Devils Lake, ND Gary. As you may remember Margaret married my 1 st. I told Margaret that she and Stanley did a lot of living in the 3 short years they were married with all the traveling and fun things they had done.
She will have many good memories of their time together. Barn on highway 43 west of St. Facebook Posting from Anita Larson Hovland. I know I sure do.
When we move away from North Dakota we always seem to remember the cold days but sometimes forget about the winter fun. Ice fishing on a sunny day is always a great time. Summer or winter, a bad day fishing still beats a good day at work.
There are some great fishing houses as well as portables for this winter pasttime. Dennis will be at our reunion in May. Dunseith Alumni Alaskan cruise — July Cheryl Haagenson with the judges of the singing contest she won. With a few health issues, I have not gotten a blog posted since September 20 th.
I attributed to a flu bug sickness expecting it to pass. On Monday, our helpers strongly suggested I have my BP checked. It was very high. Within an hour and half they were able to get it down to an acceptable level. On Tuesday I had a very thorough physical with all the Labs, ultrasounds and heart tests. Wednesday when I was at Clinic for a follow-up on my lab tests, I got a message that Bernadette had fallen face down.
The local hospital immediately sent her to the main hospital, where I just happen to be, for a CT scan of her head and other X-rays too. When she arrived she was accompanied with 7 of the local folks from our area inclusive of 2 of our helpers.
The third helper was with me. She was admitted and spent two days in the hospital. Her CT scan was good and there were no broken bones. She was well taken care of. My Labs were all good. They are monitoring my BP for the next two weeks to get it stabilized at a target level. So far all is well. This is my first time to be on BP meds.
Now that my BP is down, I feel so much better too. Lee, Thank you so much for your concerns and this reply. A lot of what you said may be true. Getting older is a contributing factor too. Casavant, 78 of Rolette, ND passed away peacefully on Sunday morning, September 23, at his home.

Deepest condolences to the family of Joy Peterson. I, along with many other boys from Dunseith, used to haul bales for Larrett and his father. The highlight of those hard days was the noon meal carefully prepared by Joy. I remember those days with great fondness. She and Bill were also great friends to my grandparents, Bill and Mary Metcalfe.

I had never liked raisin pie; Mrs. To this day, sour cream raisin pie is one of my favorites along with lemon. From his cousin Rod Hiatt I actually felt that nothing could top this beautiful day, until my wife Suzy and I walked into the Vegas Motel banquet room in Minot to help celebrate the wedding of Brian Fauske and Deb Middaugh. The happy couple met us at the door and the glow on there faces was by far more enlightening than the days sunshine, and the warmth you could feel from their love and sincerity was more soothing than the hottest sun rays of midday.
Arriving somewhat early unusual for us , we had the opportunity of noticing how Brian and Deb greeted each and everyone that came to share in their joyous day.
Its always a great time when you have the opportunity to bring back the memories of cousins growing up in Dunseith. I personally would like to welcome this beautiful woman into the Hiatt Family and thank her for putting that spark in my cousins eye. From Bill Grimme Dakota Territory was created in by a bill signed by President Buchanan just before his term ended.
Two days after the territory was created, one of the first official acts of the new president, Abraham Lincoln, was to appoint his old friend, Dr. William Jayne, as Governor of the Territory, of which Yankton was then the capitol. In , settlers were coming into the area locating primarily near St. Many of them felt the time had come for the county to be organized. In Arthur Foussard, M. Welton and Fred Schutte were named as County Commissioners. The newly formed board met near Dunseith to organize, Fred was named Chairman and Dunseith was established as the County Seat.
There were citizens who were not content to see Dunseith set up as the county seat of Rolette County. It soon became apparent that the people of St. John were prepared to make trouble. At any rate, St. John was determined to get the county seat at any cost.
Although there is no record of any petition for a county seat vote, an election was held May 6, Much campaigning on both sides preceded the election and considerable ill feeling was engendered. Neither the Dunseith or St. John partisans had much respect for the intentions of the other. On election day a committee from St. John came to Dunseith to watch the voting and a committee from Dunseith went over to St. But despite this vigilance, a large amount of repeating is said to have taken place.
Although both sides accused the other of illegal tactics, St. John appeared to have been the worst offender — the charge being that 1, votes were cast by approximately voters. Before the issue could be settled in court, St. John proceeded to set up their county government, even though a second county government was still functioning.
The county records for this period have the unique distinction of containing the minutes for two rival county boards of Commissioners. When the issue had finally been settled in court, officials from St. John went to Dunseith for the records. On the way back, one of the big safes fell into a creek, important books and papers scattered.
The Dunseith citizens felt they had the last laugh even though they had lost their bitter fight. In , the northern part of Dakota Territory was admitted to statehood as North Dakota and in the general election of the county seat was changed to Rolla and moved from St.
This happened because of the built up ice on the street and a little too much speed for the conditions. About like a freeway pileup! Rod bought another identical car and then made a sheet metal trunk portion on the wrecked car and drove it back and forth to town as a work car. The story goes on. His good car needed an engine overhaul so he had the kids in shop class rebuild the engine.
He used the engine from the wrecked car and the engine from the good car and took the best parts from each for the rebuild.
When the good car was done, he told the kids to put the old parts engine back together and put it back in the wrecked car, just for the practice. John Bogus told me that when they finished, the junker engine ran just as well as the new one! I remember Rod put lots more miles on the old wrecked car with the homemade trunk section—and with the junk parts engine! Anyone remember any of this? Lagerquist family — Dunseith Centeniel Book: Folks, Neola asked me to combine these two scans into one for her files.

Just a wonderful spring fresh air March morning! At break time I left the school building for a wee bit. The year was and she could sing that song so sweetly, without accompaniment. I wish her sunshine wherever she is. Because today the memory of that song sung by her added to my sunshine.
As we all know, Debbie Morinville Marmon is recovering from a stroke she had several years ago. Provided by Neola Kofoid Garbe: Thank you Neola for sharing this beautiful photo. I remember this family very well down to Evon.
As you can see, Evon is the only girl of nine siblings. Folks, I have a good story to tell you about how I met Jerry Olson. First off I will tell you he was born and raised in Souris, graduating from Souris in His sister, Nadine Little, is well known in the Bottineau and surrounding community as the cake lady. Now the story of how we met. Jerry has lived in Bremerton, WA for many years. We too lived in Bremerton for nearly 37 years. A good friend of mine who now lives in AZ sends out 6 forwards everyday to about 60 folks on his list.
About 2 months ago one of his forwards was the picture of the deer on the snow mobile trail near Lake Metigoshe feeding on the grain that had been dumped there for them to eat. He had no idea where this picture was taken when he sent either. I instantly recognized that photo from seeing it in the Bottineau Courant several years ago.
I did a reply all to that message letting everyone know where this picture was taken with a bit of the history and geography of the area. The next day I got this reply from Jerry Olson who had gotten my reply forwarded to him. His mother was a Dunderland from the hills. Jerry spent a lot of time at the Lutheran bible camp and church at Lake Metigoshe and also the Boy Scout camp in his youth.
Jerry and I have never met face to face, but we have exchange a number of messages in the past several months. Folks, There were a lot of discussions about the Hobbs, the Metigoshe Store, etc back in January I have reposted several of those discussions below. It was just south of the bridge and on the south side of the curve. We went there many times in the late 50s and early 60s, usually by boat from the cabin on the south lake.
I remember how the store had lots of steps up the front and you first entered the lunch counter area. I had many sundaes at that little counter, while the folks got groceries and supplies. They handled nearly everything lake related. I believe he passed away in the last couple of years, if my memory serves me correctly.
Dick, I remember that store and park area well. I was thinking it was Harvey Hobbs that owned that and you have just confirmed what I thought. We frequented his store and park area with many picnic lunches over the years of my childhood. I remember the water cooled pop dispenser that they had. It was very common to use the Middle name in the years past. I believe one reason for it was that so often families repeated the first names from generation to generation to honor fathers and grandfathers, etc..
It makes for some confusion when doing genealogy. Our cottage was not very far from the Metigoshe Store Hobbs , perhaps a mile, and we went there often. If we were working on the boathouse or something and took a break, Chuck, Ross our son and I would go for a snack, and this is where we met Sylvia Bergan, as she worked for them and she baked the BEST frosted ginger cookies that I have ever tasted. Ross just loved them, and was raring to go when we said we were going to the store. We missed them when they moved away.
Sylvia also cooked for the Boy scouts camp at Lake Metigoshe for many years. She was well known for her baking and cooking abilities. Sylvia will be 97 this year. She is living at the long term care facility at Saint Andrews hospital in Bottineau. Sylvia and a lot of the older members of the Metigoshe Lutheran church Ladies Aid served lunch at both my parents funerals, Dad in and mom in It sure brought back some good memories seeing all those folks doing what I remember seeing them doing, many times, in my growing up days.
Sylvia was an aunt to Clayton Bergan. Posted byNeola Kofoid Garbe: His mother is Kristy Hagen Brooks. They live on the Former Elmer Lindberg farm located about a half mile into Bottineau county on.
This Reunion announcement was posted in the Bottineau Courant. I sent it to the Turtle Mountain Star. Rice is their staple and a good filler. Rice is their main coarse for all meals.
A rice diet alone without much other food tends to create pop bellied malnutrited folks. The way the Mustang that I had came to us, is a story in itself. He moved a small cabin to the lot by himself and with the improvements had probably a couple hundred dollars more invested. Nine years later we were kind of burned out with the lake deal and a fellow offered to trade Dad the blue and white Mustang, even up, for the lake cabin. I drove the Mustang to college in Bottineau for two years and had racked up about 75, miles on it.
I was told that she had it professionally restored in Arizona. Someday I would like to see it again. Mom drove the Mustang to work at the bank until she died and now I still have the car in the same condition as it was in It needs a paint job and maybe tires as it has the same tires on it yet.
We start it twice a year, spring and fall, and drive around the farm a bit and run it back inside the quonset. It brings back good memories. Marlys passed away a couple of years ago.
Duane and his wife, Helen Rivard , live in Bottineau. Alida lives at Good Samaritan in Bottineau. I have known that family my entire life. We all belonged to the Metigoshe Lutheran churches. I know many of you probably Remember Duane Christenson too from our younger days. I would suggest it be done as soon as possible as she gave me a September 21 deadline. Joke of the Day Posted by Don Malaterre: The bride was escorted down the aisle and when she reached the altar, the groom was standing there with his golf bag and clubs at his side.
Reply to Dunseith Lutheran Confirmation Picture: From Connie Roger Zorn Landsverk: Neat photo of the conformation class of You and Bernadette started it years ago, I just asked questions about why you felt the need to provide food and clothing for PI children at Christmas time. The result of those e-mails was a joint venture between you and I to share that info with those who read the Dunseith Blog. And now I want to bring up my absolute favorites Dunseith car.
Many of you might remember that Ford introduced the Mustang in or with a great deal of fanfare. A short time after that announcement at least I think it was a short time after , a beautiful blue mustang with a white top appeared in Dunseith.
Guess Don thought Dick needed to grow into it.. Alumni Reunion — Dunseith Monthly Newsletter and postings: I personally do the monthly newsletters for the school and distribute them all around town, local businesses. There was an announcement concerning the reunion in the last two newsletters and there will be another in April and May also. Verena, This is Wonderful! You do great work! Thank you much for posting around town and also with us on the Blog.
One of the links is for her sister, Lorena Adams Aus, who apparently worked at San Haven at some point in the past. The web site for Ruby is: Their mother too was a sister to Ruby and Irene. It takes a good caring person to be able to withstand everything you are going through. God knows you are that. I will say prayers for you to help with this heartbreaking journey. I mean every move too just going from one room to the next. When I leave to go somewhere, she gets very angry.
Most of the time when our help leaves at 9 PM, Bernadette is in bed with the door open. Her short term memory is very much affected now too. Reply from Cheryl Haagenson This is so late and so last decade, however Earl Schneiderman and his dad did live behind the Elvin Haagenson farm for a while.
They would stop sometimes for coffee on their way by. I recall Earl had big cars, but in those days most of the cars were big, perhaps loud would be more accurate. Dad thinks they stayed about a year.
I remember when we left we inherited an Irish Setter! Brenda and Dale opened the can of worms when they brought up cars. In it was 5 cars. Dad got a letter from the state telling him he had sold all he could without getting one. He had just sold off extra vehicles and bought others, but it was too many according to them. A Canadian drove in with a big Oldsmobile that was made in Canada. I opened the hood to check the oil and there sat a dinky cubic inch Chevy six cylinder engine.
I saw the guy go into the restroom so I thought he was out of earshot when I yelled at John Bogus to come out and see what this guy put in his big car for an engine. The Canadian built cars had different chrome and also went by different names than the American built cars of the same manufacture. Ford trucks were called Mercurys, Mercury cars were called Meteors, and some Pontiacs were actually Chevys with odd chrome.
Ford garage used to get model cars for each year of production. They had these models displayed on a shelf in the showroom and I used to go in and drool while looking at them. I asked several times if I could have one, but they were all spoken for. When we went back into town, Jay said he had something for me if we stopped at the shop. He handed me a baby blue Ford two door hardtop model car! I thought I had the world by the tail! I kept it for many years but gave it to someone when I was older.
Folks, A very generous Dunseith Alumni couple provided funding for food for these three Filipino families pictured below. With the money they sent, we purchased three 25 KG bags of rice along with the other food items shown in the picture. These folks were so happy. After purchasing these items, we asked these three families to come to our house to pick up their grocieries. They repeatedly thanked Bernadette and me as they left. When the neighborhood heard we were doing this, folks started coming to our house thinking there was more.
These three families all came back with thank you letters the next day that we forwarded onto the donors. On a typical day, when these folks get up in the morning there is no food in their house. Family members will go out seeking ways to earn a little bit of money to provide a little food for their family for the day. They will try and find odd jobs here and there. Often times they will go around the neighborhood selling food items and other stuff on consignment.
Many days they have very little and some days nothing at all to eat. In spite of all this, most are happy go lucky friendly folks with a smile. With the donations we received yesterday, the Dunseith Alumni has helped 6 needy families. With the many needy families in our area, to simplify things, Bernadette and I have decided to merry up separate families for each donor.
Packages greater than one pound can not be sent to this address. I have more info posted on our Dunseith Alumni Website http: I have been rather busy lately, so I have not had a chance to post these latest pictures on the site. It caught my attention at the time, but nothing ever came of it. Many people used, as a sir name, the town where they lived. Anna and her husband lived in Washington state; they had two daughters, Helen and Anita. Helen married and lived in Ferndale, Washington.
Anita married a Canadian and lived in Canada. Carol is married and has, I think, 5 girls. Anna died when her daughters were quite young. Her husband remarried a few years later. Edward, Margaret, Merton, Agnes, Arnold. I think one son lives in Mankato, MN. As I understand it, Mathilda changed the spelling from Bruvik to Brudwick. They had six children: Axel was killed when a ship he was working on, hit a mine that was left over from World War.
Again, Eileen would know more about this. Message dated Wednesday August Services will be held at a later date. Sorry to learn about Don Corbin. He was of great help to me as I began my first year of teaching at Dunseith in Don was an active officer in the National Guard attached to the Bottineau company. I worked out with him a few times in the gymnasium on self defense moves. You are right about him being a no nonsense kind of guy but he always had a great sense of humor.
Reply from Floyd Dion He was a well known friend to many. He was raised in the Dunseith area and graduated from Bottineau High School in Earl was one of the nicest persons on the face of this earth. A real gentleman too. Now both he and Glen Rude are gone. A great loss for the whole community. Earl Thompson, age 87 of Bottineau, died on Thursday, August 30, on his farm north of Bottineau.
His funeral will be held on Monday, September 3, at Visitation will be Sunday from 1: Burial will be at the Nordland Cemetery. Some with personal experience with horses on working farms probably can recall with fondness,. And I remember Art Seim driving a prancing sorrel team,. Dad pitched hay in to the hay rack and fed cattle every day in the winters before he owned a tractor.
And……Not a one he could drive or ride. Hi Gary, can you add my sister and her husband to the email list. Leslie Peterson Poitra was from the class of 90 and Scott Peterson was from the class of They farm north of Kelvin Bar. Interesting but they did not know of the mini-reunion this summer in Dunseith. I know it was in the Turtle Mtn Star awhile back but not sure if there was anything posted. I look forward to the get together in Dunseith. It will be nice to catch up with the old gang once again!!!
We are hoping to see you guys at the reunion on May 22nd too. I know you transferred to and graduated from Bottineau with redistricting. Reply from Connie Roger Zorn Landsverk: I guess Evelyn is living in Rugby now. I think a Nursing Home. I think there was some boys in that cote family too!! Reply from Jan Hosmer Cobb Leona lives in a lovely apartment just a mile from me in Wilsonville, Oregon.
Wilsonville, like Dunseith, is a small town. We play bridge together, occasionally competing in tournaments. She is still my teacher and with her lead, we usually do well. We have over Master Points. It is such a treat having her close by at this time in our lives.
She models for me every day on how to grow older with grace, intelligence, charm and and curiosity. She is always surprising me with her desire to expand her world, to see and try new things.
Learning computer skills and joining the community you have created is just the most recent of her adventures. He had a bright red Model A Ford coupe that was the nicest little coupe in the country! Those were all real cream puff cars that their dad located for them, I believe.
Harvey had an eye for classy cars! Any time I ever saw Harvey, he had a clean and shiny car no matter what time of the year it was. It has been an amazing couple of weeks! Patrick and I were married on Wednesday March 3 at 6: My dream of having an outside wedding came true! The gazebo is in the middle of the park surrounded by trees and snow.
It was a cool night but the ceremony was beautiful in the twilight. Now I am a very proud wife and mother! We will still have our large wedding in October so this one was just for us and Connor. Connor is doing great. I just left the hospital a little while ago and he was sleeping soundly. The doctor increased his feedings amount a little today and his weight is up to 4lbs 3oz. We do not know how long he will have to stay in there but the doctors tell me he is doing great so what more could I ask for!
Hello from Costa Rica: My horse won the race down the beach…! I return on march 9th and have decided to get my act together as soon as possible for living on horseback. My mother insisted that we have a family picture before I left for the Army. Please reply with names. Confirmation Picture reposted with correction: DHS Class of 59 Valedictorian: Pat has given me permission to post her reply to me.
She can be reached on Facebook messaging. His wife, Irene, and his kids are with him. Sorry to have to tell you sad news. He was my Biology Teacher in our sophomore year. That was the first year in the new high school and the present DHS today too. He was very liked and a respected disciplinarian too. Conroy, our School HS Principal had to leave for medical reasons.
Corbin, as I remember, filled in for Mr. Conroy in his absence. Miss Diane Liere was hired fresh out of college to take over Mr. Miss Liere was a very attractive young teacher. She was having disciplinary problems with some of the boys in our Biology class. Corbin giving our class a very firm lecture. We all got the message loud and clear. I remember well Mr. Corbin pulling me to the side in the hallway, telling me I could do a lot better than I was doing in his biology class.
It felt really good having Mr. Corbin take a special interest me too. Long before I started doing this blog, I often thought of him too.
I will never forget him. I believe he was a half-brother to Floyd. Their mother was Lydia Dion who was a sister to my grandmother, Eva Dion. As I said, Floyd Dion is the person to talk to. Apparently, we sisters represented the enemy sailors as we were forever telling him to put on other music. Request from Jan Hosmer Cobb Jan, where is you mother living now?
I know many of our readers know and remember your mother well. She is from the Richard family too. Thanks for including her. Reply from Blanche Wicks Schley It was interesting to read the Dunseith school song and the notation on the boys.
There is a movement or perhaps just an idea as this time regarding the national anthem of Canada. From Brenda Hoffman Dale Pritchard sent me an overview of his travels and adventures with the US Air Force and other military branches. I thought the Dunseith blog readers would be as interested as I was. Brenda, It is my pleasure to post this. Dale has most certainly had a very interesting career.
My Air Force time was all spent in aircraft maintenance, starting as the lowest paid wrench carrier. In my last 5 years, I supervised about 75 people 24 hours a day, 7 days a week in one of three different areas we had. Then I moved from that to being the overall supervisor of all three sections, about people. I then spent two years supervising the scheduling of missions and scheduled maintenance.
Because of that job, I got promoted to Superintendent of Aircraft Quality Assurance with only 20 people under me. My first base was a two year tour in Japan, of which I spent most of my time in Viet Nam. Much of my time there was spent in Europe. I came back from there and went to Topeka, Kansas where I continued the 3-month rotations to Europe. From there I landed in Okinawa for eight months after which they moved me to Japan, just five miles from where I was stationed the first time.
During my Okinawan time, I again spent a lot of time in Viet Nam and was there with a team repairing one of our planes the day before Saigon got overrun. Got out just in time. Because there was no more Viet Nam, I got stuck in Abilene for eight years. I forget the rest now except Poland. Being a communist country, we had to paint over the US markings on the plane and fly in civilian clothes. I also made it into many of the islands in the Pacific.
