Jim is not trying to hypnotize the chicken that Dan is looking down at, he's actually staring at a computer screen just outside the pic to they are. They specialize in agricultural and big truck tires, but have everything you need for our basic vehicles. They are a full service tire shop which in farm country means they're equipped to head out to the field and do some fixin. They have a big shop so in addition to tires they do a lot of brake work, basic maintenance and minor repairs .... and free belt inspections, by the way. Good crew in there too. Always extremely courteous and helpful even when dealing with an aged old buffalo like my Explorer. They still treat her like a Cadillac. Now lets talk hardware, because that is their current expansion project. They aim is to make it a "one stop shop" for us locals, meaning you can fulfill most of your hardware needs without leaving town. Anyone who does a lot of home repair knows how handy that can be. And... if they don't have it, they'll get it for you. That includes appliances. So taking a wander through, I couldn't help but quickly notice the fishing section. Fishing poles, tackle and the works. Liked that. They are in the process of jumping through the hoops required to sell hunting and fishing licenses. Come April, they should be available in store. Lots of general hardware in there and tools to go with it. They like the name brand stuff and carry such names as Dewalt and Milwaukee. They also have a brand new crimper machine for building hydraulic hoses. Again, they specialize in good stuff, providing you with Gater hydraulic hoses and fittings. If you need a battery, they specialize in Interstate batteries. Oh, and if you need propane, they've got that too. They can take care of your 20 to 100 pound tanks. There's a lot of stuff I haven't mentioned from the discount tool table to a few toys and even some snacks. The best thing to do is take a Continued From Page 1 walk through the store, have a visit and see what they've got. They're also planning a customer appreciation day once it warms up. If you remember last year's it was no small thing. Good food and good times, it went well into the night. For us foodies, who know.., it was really, really good. Exceptional. That's the truth. Look for their sidewalk displays, coming soon, advertising store specials. One last note. We talked about everyone except Jim. We covered him last year, but a little refresher. Big Jim is Jim Hiebert, originally from Walhaila. Big Jim has owned Big Jim's Tire in Grand Forks, I know for well over 20 years. Maybe more. So now you know...

Drayton leads innovations among rural towns during annual events by web- streaming the event to a world as wide as the Web itself and recently offering an online edition of the Valley News for digital subscribers anywhere. Other towns can learn from Drayton and Drayton can benefit from what other towns have learned to distinguish their personalized identity. For tourism, Drayton has more infrastructure to become a destination - the Red River with its rich history, 1-29 for easy access, its cultural heritage, students who rank among the highest in the state, an active historical society, a renovated Memorial Hall, the Hasting's Landing Restaurant wired for visual communications, Web-streaming events, and the new digital edition of the newspaper. From the earliest times of communications, it has been the story that generates the interest in mobility, to explore, to discover, and to learn. "Story Mapping" preserves some of the stories at the place where the story originated. An example of the power of a first-person visual story is how a 14-year-old boy from SFO area who spent two days in Drayton on a "Father-Son" tour in 2010 used a 2:20 minute film of his experience in ND as his college "essay" to be accepted by the college of his career choice. What he learned from this trip influenced his future and will be a lasting memory as he tells his first-person story to the world of social media.

No, I'm not referring to Saralee Hoselton, who is also pictured at left, but the historically famous Old Ironsides, moored right behind her. Saralee was attending the National Farmer's Union Conference in Massachusetts at the time and had gone out to do a little site seeing. traveled back behind our house through the woods where we used to find adventure in our younger years. The scenery was beautiful and the thrill of riding, taking in the fresh, cool air beneath barren trees was exhilarating. Later that day we gathered at my parents' home to grill out and have supper. I played with my two young nephews quite a bit who always bring such joy and laughter into our lives. Little Hawken came up behind me when I was getting a glass of water from the fridge and was yelling "Keeee Keee" as he doesn't quite have Keke down which is the nickname the rest of them call me. When I turned around thinking he was in distress of some sort, he lifted a little wooden fire engine to show me. That was all he wanted, just to show me his toy. As I sat in my father's chair in the living room, our 4- year-old nephew came up to me and said, "Keke," to which I replied, "Yes Trapper?" He looked me in the eyes and just said, "I love you." "I love you too Trapper, so much." They sure do know how to make a person feel loved and for that I will always be grateful. Losing a loved one can be so hard; there are always a plethora of emotions tied with grief it is difficult to keep them contained at times. I have learned just to let the tears come when they may, hoping and praying one day they will come less frequently. I am trying as best I can to heal, to find that little girl who was so full of life and love, amazed by the littlest things and full of hope and dreams. I am trying to find my worth in this world and most of the time it comes through the voices of children, through the smile on my niece's face when I understand her or a grin from my older nephew when I compliment him on a good basketball game. I see it in the loving, loyal faces Of our animals a few of which come running to me when I am sitting in my chair crying. I see it in my husband's eyes when he tells me he loves me every morning and each night before I go to bed. It is there, my worth, in the midst of life's simple moments. Sometimes along the way, we are confronted with hard to understand emotions and difficult losses. I am grateful for the memories we are making now because one day I know each of us will need to draw on them for strength, to feel them as if they are right in front of us being played out like a well written song. Memories are our comfort not just in the here and now, but in future years when out of nowhere a recollection will pop into our thoughts and make us smile knowing that for a short time, we were given the grace of being in the presence of something divine.
