Valley News &Views Page 5 July 8th, 2010 Putting it into i Rings In Philadelphia - July 8th, 1776 Citizens were summoned today to the first public reading of the Declaration of Independence, bythe ringing of the Liberty Bell, located in the tower of the Pennsylvania State House, in Philadelphia. The declaration was read by Colonel John Nixon. Although the Declaration of Independence was signed July 4th, the Liberty Bell, which bore the biblical quotation, "Proclaim Liberty Throughout All the Land unto All the Inhabitants Thereof," was not rung until and the declaration not read publicly until the 8th of July, because they had to wait for the Declaration of Independence to be returned from the printer. July 5th, 1894 Drayton Echo Wednesday was a clear, fine day and a large crowd of people for the surrounding country and neighboring towns came to town early to enjoy the festivities of the day. The large procession, representing the fire department, the mercantile and machine houses, the various trades and Coxey's Army under command of Gen. A.G. Brown, formed on Main street under direction of J.D.Wallace, marshal of the day and led by the Drayton Coronet Band, the grand pagent moved along the principal streets of the city. After the parade, a program of exercises took place at the band stand on the driving park, consisting of music by the band, reading of the Declaration of Independence, by J.M. Wylie and Oration by Commander E. Southard. There was an immense turnout at the band concert in the evening, Columbia Hall being full. After the concert came the fireworks, but it was raining hard by this time and many did not remain to see the same go off. July 6th, 1917 Drayton Echo Citizens from this city and vicinity celebrated the Fourth at Arvilla, Halleck, Pembina and Walhalla. Good celebrations are reported at all the towns which the people visited. Clarence Jorde, who enlisted in the navy and for North Da in Itself Some years ago, I had the privilege of working with Allan Young, former chairperson of the North Dakota Republican Party, who had come to the University of North Dakota as a slightly older than average graduate student. One day I asked Allan what motivated him to enroll for an advanced degree. He explained that he recently had come into good fortune and he now had the opportunity t spend money on a wide range of options. After considering the alternatives, he explained, "I decided to invest in myself." He could have dissipated his new-found prosperity on riotous living, world Cruises, and other temporary pursuits, but he chose the kind of long-term investing that yields healthy dividends year after year. North Dakota should take a page out of Allan Young's investment guide. State Budget Director Pare Sharp just reported to the Legislature's Budget Section that revenue for the state's oil trust fund would be $500 million - twice the original estimate. Even without these figures, GeneralWesley Clark, an investment and energy consultant, predicted to the Renewable Energy Action Summit at Bismarck State College that North Dakota would be the future energy capital of North America if we invested in the future. All of this oil money means that the state government will have massive amounts to give away for riotous living or to invest in the education, economic, people, energy andwaterinfrastructuresthat will serve North Dakotans for generations to come. Those suffering from the storm cellar mentality will want to bury it in "rainy day" funds, mandated savings accounts and just about anything except investing it in long-term assets. We saw this mindset in the last session when millions of dollars were so cleverly spirited away that squirrels were left in awe. Then there are others who would like to see the extra revenue politically dissipated throughout the state on the premise that expenditures are good if everybody gets some.

July 5th, 1962 Drayton Express Bonnie Rasmussen observed her 6th birthday by inviting a numer of her little friends to the park to play last Wednesday afternoon. Those present were Laurie and Lee Jorde, Nina and Carol Bates, Ellen Kohl, Gergiann Knduson, Jull Bruschwein, David, Duianne and Margaret Marciniak, Marly and Doris Kirkeby. Bonnie received many nice brithday gifts. A picnic supper was served by her mother at 4:30. Other supper guests included Mr. and Mrs.Young, Mrs. Einar Peterson, Mrs. Roy Westling, Mrs. Eldor Kraatz and Vonda Lee, Mrs. Edie Marciniak and Mrs. Ida Rasmussen. Centers of Excellence are already hoping to increase payrolls, programs and overhead with the new oil money. The state's economic opportunities should command new investment but under the scrutiny of impartial experts, preferably panels of out-of-staters who have no stake in North Dakota politics. With the oil windfall, we can expect to see all sorts of grandiose proposals that have no realistic long-term promise. Expanding educational opportunities for young and old alike would pay off big time, something we learned from the GI Bill that boosted the economy after World War II. Cleaning up dirty coal and diversifying energy sources both warrant serious consideration. NorthDakota can now spend more of its own money on building its water infrastructure. With a booming state treasury, we can quit waiting for investors in Minneapolis, Chicago or NewYork to build our economic base. Neither do we need to plead for federal government help to fund every exigency when our own treasury is bulging. For the first time in history, we have the option of investing in ourselves. The 2011 session of the Legislature will tell us whether or not we have the vision to do so.
