Valley News & Views !i!: & Page 7 June 10, 2010 The Pastor's Column (Editor's Note: Our apologies to Pastor Aufenkamp. Last week marked the first time since 1981 his column missed the paper, through no fault of his own. Sorry for dropping the ball. The following is last weeks column.) Ours is a very dangerous world. Many nations hate America, and would like to see us destroyed. Consider just a few of the nations which hate us: Venezuela, North Korea, mos Muslim nations, Russia and China. With all these nations desirous of our demise comes a curious response from many Americans. We should do nothing that might make them angry. The perhaps they'll like us, or at the least, leave us alone. Dietrich Bonhoeffer (hanged for his part in a failed assassination plot against Hitler) in his book, "The Cost of Discipleship" wrote - "It is obvious that weakness and defenselessness only invite aggression". Yet so much of our actions suggests weakness and lack of resolve. Several administrations have done little to protect our borders from possible intrusion by would-be terrorists. A missile shield in Europe was cancelled so as not to anger Russia. We aren't overly helpful where Taiwan is concerned because of China's possible irritation. We speak softly about radical terrorists because we don't want to anger Muslim nations. We placate, appease, and talk softly while carrying a small stick of diplomacy. Many have forgotten the high cost of freedom and that to remain free one must occasionally go to war, which likely means making our enemies angry. Revelation 12:7 tells of "war in heaven" between God's angels and the devil and his angels. Verse 12 says the devil was filled with "great wrath". God could have tried to appease or talk, but war was necessary for victory. Millions of fallen and wounded soldiers remind us that ours is a hostile world bent on our destruction. Our enemies are angry, but we must fight or be overthrown. God bless those men and weomen who have valiantly served to give, ensure, and maintain our freedom.

"We take the star from Heaven, the red from our mother country, separating it by white stripes, thus showing that we have separated from her, and the white stripes shall go down to posterity representing liberty." - George Washington. Flag Day - Monday June 14th Copeland and Tucker Place At State Track Meet Robert Copeland continued his rise to Shot Put stardom by placing Third at the North Dakota State Track Field Meet. Copeland had never touched a shot put before joining track in this his senior year, in March. Copeland mastered the event quickly under the guidance of DSTVThrows Coach David Jongetjes. Robert placed in ever meet this year starting with the ND State Indoor where his finished 8th in his first competition with a put of 39' 10.5". Robert finished a remarkable season of steady improvement going 48' 5.5" at the State Meet in Bismarck on Friday May 28, 2010. Robert broke his DSTV record on his first put at the State Meet with a 47' 8" effort and followed that up on his next put with his 48' 5.5". Copeland had set the record winning the Region II Meet on May 22nd with an effort of 47' 6". Robert was seated 10th overall at the State Meet and jump up 7 places to capture the well-earned 3rd place trophy. Marcus Tucker had a personal best effort in the Pole Vault on Saturday, May 29th at the State Meet, with a vault of 12'. Tucker came into the meet seated 13th overall and moved up 5 places, to finish 8th. Marcus was rewarded for his hard work coming in before 7:00 am many mornings to vault, with the 8th place trophy. Marcus who has battled injuries most of the last half of the season showed "true grit" at the State Meet to reach the awards stand. Tucker cleared the opening height of 11' on his first attempt with a very nice vault. Marcus cleared 11' 6" on his second attempt and put together a beautiful technical vault clearing 12' on his first attempt. Tucker's second attempt at 12' 6" was a quality jump. Marcus's 12' make on the first attempt secured him the place on the awards stand. Chris Martinson was the third entry for the Blue Knights at the State Meet. It was Chris's third year at the State Meet. Chris was entered in the 110 HH and gave a valiant effort as he went out hard trying to three step the hurdles before hitting a hurdle. He finished the race giving it a very good effort. It was a credit to the Blue Knight Track and Field athletes as they continued to strive to improve down to the last competition of the year and career for these three seniors. DSTV also looses two other seniors from the 2010 Region II Runner -up Team, Casey Pederson and Ross Oihus. The team wishes the seniors the best of luck in the future and thanks them for a great year. DSTV closes another season that saw the Blue Knight boys make unbelievable improvement through out the season, hopefully the underclassman will continue to develop for the 2011 season. of Thank you to Kelly's Coun- try Market for the bag of gro- ceries that I won during their recent drawings. We are so blessed to have such a great store right here in Drayton. Pam Scharmer The members of the Ox Cart Trails Historical Society wishes to thank Richard Hermanson for volunteering his services to mow the Museum Grounds. Coach Murph Thompson is picture above with Marcus Tucker at the State Track and Field Meet where he finished 8th in the pole vault competition. By the by, coach Thompson was named Region II Boys Track Coach of the Year earlier in May at the Region II meet.
