Page 2 July 18th, 2013 Notices !!!i!i!!!!!ii!!!iiiii !!i!!!!!i! !!iiii!! Valley News and Views Showcasing in media networks is the future of folk museums in small rural towns. The stories, which "come alive" in a Web- based showcase, outreach to viewers or visitors through print, voice and visuals. These elements of modern storytelling are what sustain the history and heritage of a community by "Story Mapping" a collection of a community of stories. Heritage Tourism drives North Dakota's (ND) third largest industry. ND is the fastest growing state in the Nation. In my opinion, it is the full gamut of media - newspapers, magazines, books, radio, TV and film- stories -- that will make the difference in the future of how museums will sustain themselves and become key assets in community economic development. With growth in populations, the need increases for stories of heritage to be accessible for new or potential residents to begin to understand and appreciate the communities that they can or do occupy. Museums, libraries and memorial parks are the infrastructures in a rural town where artifacts and stories in all formats are preserved. The challenge, though, is to create ways to "bring to life" these stories. Events like Riverfest this coming weekend bring people together to enjoy the social and cultural activities that people enjoy over decades. This Thursday, author Lauraine Snelling is presenting a writers workshop in the Memorial Building. She is an acclaimed writer who has written over 60 novels - many storylines drawn from her family genealogy in this area and her Norwegian heritage. She creates word-pictures in stories that "touch" the aliveness in people in a humanplotthathasrelevance today in conveying drama, culture and resolution from the printed page. I attended Lauraine's Public Notice City of Drayton Aerial Mosquito Spraying In preparation for the upcoming Riverfest activities the City of Drayton has scheduled an aerial mosquito spray for Friday evening, July 19, weather permitting. This aerial application has been approved by the FAA and the ND State Department of Health. A specially trained and licensed pilot from Airborne Custom Spraying Inc. in Halstad, MN will be flying the twin engine plane. The mosquito control product is one specifically designed for use in residential areas. It's safe to use and won't harm people, pets or gardens. However, as an added measure of safety, you may want to remain indoors while the application is taking place. This and all other mosquito control efforts are paid for with the $6.00 mosquito charge that appears on city utility bills for 6 months of the year. Homeowners can help keep the mosquito count down by making sure there's no standing water in your yard. Regularly empty containers that collect rainwater. Keep grass and weeds closely mowed. Your efforts do make a difference! Public Notice Section 324 Notice Section 324 Notice In compliance with federal law, the Pembina County Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) gives notice that the Pembina County Emergency Operations Plan which includes the Emergency and Hazardous Chemical Inventory (Tier II) Reports and Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS's) have been received and reviewed by the Pembina County LEPC. These documents, along with the hazardous materials response plan for Pembina County, are available for public inspection at 301 Dakota Street West, Pembina County Courthouse - Main Floor between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:30p. m.on Aug. 1st. writer's workshop some years ago and she spurred me on to write for local newspapers where I am involved with museums - Drayton and Northwood - and progressing in recent years as feature editor of Norwegian American Weekly out of Seattle. My discovery has been that it is the "life story" of people that counts in whatever media format that best reaches numbers of readers or viewers. Museums too need to find ways to create this feeling of "aliveness" from static showcases and to use new media to outreach to people with a bond to the area to "become a part" of the community, even from a distance. The Ox Cart Trails Museum and Historical Society, the Drayton Chamber of Commerce, and the Valley News have been instrumental in both drawing the community together and outreaching to extended "digital communities." Examples are events, like the "Bound for Blessing" series of original community theater, and Riverfest and Old Fashioned Christmas, which for two years has Web,- streaming the event "to the world" out there. Youth too from the Drayton community have been engaged to take an active part in making the museum events more relevant to the next generation. Three years ago, Joe Lambert, founder of the Center for Digital Storytelling in Berkeley visited Drayton for several days, sponsored by UND Center for Community Engagement, the Northwood Museum and the Drayton Ox Cart Trails Museum. He promoted the idea to apply the Story Mapping method in ND, as he has over two decades in other states and dozens of countries. From this week of planning and exchanging ideas, the Dakota Heritage Institute (DHI) was formalized in August 2010 as a ND non- profit organization. The purpose of DHI is to capture and preserve the stories of pioneers in digital format, with youth learning the craft of documenting heritage in three-minute films and seniors providing the story content. Digital stories through filmmaking are possible today, even with an iPhone, iPod or iPad. The ultimate goal of DHI is to develop self-generating revenues to sustain the values of heritage that are found in local museums, libraries and memorial parks. A seed grant is now being implemented in a project called "Story Mapping Dakota," which is funded in part by the ND Humanities Council. Small rural towns are a microcosm of a "global village." The technologies and the timing are in place to provide substance and sustainability to collective growth in a network of rural towns. With lessons learned over a half decade and with stories showcased in libraries and museums, the "smart phone" in the hands of dedicated students, with training, can take us there.

Dale B Haugen, Lic #198 ND We had a garage sale at our house a couple of weeks ago and I took the occasion to sell my .22 rifle, a gun I purchased to protect my lettuce from the rabbits and my bird feeder from the squirrels. (Life requires us to make hard choices.) The sale wasn't a protest over gun legislation. The rabbits and squirrels just disappeared from our country place and the gun wasn't needed anymore. Before selling, I called the local police department to check for regulations about selling guns at garage sales. When presented the question, the officer said there were none. The gun was purchased by an honorable looking citizen but I could have ended up unknowingly selling it to a convicted felon. I considered doing my own oral background check on the spot but the purchaser looked okay so I let it go. I think felons want more than a .22 anyway. This all occurred before Gabbie Giffords and husband Mark Kelly made appearances in Fargo and Bismarck in their campaign to get Congress to require background checks on all gun transfers. They came to apply subtle pressure on Senators John Hoeven and Heidi Heitkamp, both of' whom voted to kill the proposal in the U. S. Senate. While here, Giffords and Kelly reported that polls showed that 79 per cent of North Dakotans favored universal background checks. This raises an interesting question about representative government. It is obvious that neither Hoeven nor Heitkamp were listening to their constituents on the issue. Senator Hoeven was trapped by the pack mentality that dominates the Republican caucus in the Senate. Hoeven is not really an ideologue. He's a rational pragmatic moderate. If he were not imprisoned by the politics of his caucus, he would have voted for the measure. Senator Heitkamp was Continued On Page 5 Public Notice: Property for Sale by Written Bid NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the City of Drayton ND is offering for sale the following property: Parcel # 29-0490000, North 26 1/2 feet of Lot 20, West side Main Street, City of Drayton.
