Drayton Public School's Parens' Notes Starts On Page 5 Thursday August 8th, 2013 The Official Newspaper of the City of Drayton and Drayton Public School ! Volume 33 - Number 29 II III II Ritzo Fired: No More Around the Town! Heinrich 's, Down Our Street to Replace Column Yes, it's true. I had to fire myself this week. I will no longer be trying to produce the "Around the Town" column. I have been replaced by Beth Knudson Heinrichs and the Around the Town title has been replaced with the more nostalgic, "Down Our Street." Beth actually comes way over qualified with a for real degree in journalism and true life experience in the field. She's also got the right stuff as far as the combination of appreciation for the community, a good connect with the numerous generations and equally good sense of humor are concerned. Many folks have requested more local information, like the good old days. I think Beth will be the answer to your prayers. You can turn to her column now on page 3. On the positive side, this gives me the chance to pursue more serious issues like Earl the Penguin aad the 2nd Annual Most Photogenic Chicken Contest. I therefore may have to retum to Notes from the Republic. Also, for the sausage lovers, Sausage of the Week will continue in one way or other. It's amazing the number of out of town folks that salivate over Kelly's Sausage of the Week. Last Day of Swimming is August 17th The last day of swimming at the Drayton swimming pool will be Saturday, August 17th. Hours for that day will be from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. Beginning Monday August 12th, the pool will be open Monday through Friday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. for open swimming as well as from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. for open swimming. More Good Eating In Store For Us We hate to see summer winding down already but there is some good that comes of it. We've got two more picnics to look forward to. KodaBank Picnic Members of the Drayton Lutheran and Skjeberg Lutheran churches as well as other volunteers from the area went to Grand Forks Sunday to serve the annual parish picnic at Northland Rescue Mission. As usual, the food was outstanding and very well received by all. Some supervision was necessary as seen in photo at right, as Judy Gozdal supervises husband Ray, reminding him to cut the bars and not the fingers. Below, Bobby Westling was caught sitting on a rock, pondering life, the universe and everything. There might have been a few thoughts about an upcoming rib dinner there, too. } Drayton Lutheran Parish and Local Volunteers Serve Annual Meal The Drayton Lutheran elsewhere.

They were in the right place. They went away pretty well satisfied too. One of the things the Great Plains Food Bank does is provide support to counties that can't provide on their own the support required to feed their hungry. Just a note, in Pembina county there are about 540 persons or 7.4% of the population that is determined to be food insecure. Food insecurity is a there are about 370, or 8% of the population. Getting Practiced Up for Catfishing Tournament Brianna Wink was out practicing week before last for the upcoming Rod and Reel Rally Catfishing Tournament to be held here in Drayton, August 24th. Brianna is pictured at left, helping to hold up the 19 pound practice catfish she caught that afternoon while out fishing with morn and dad, Dawn and Jacques Van der Lith. Seems Brianna doesn't care much for holding the fish itself, but was fine taking the top position on the fishing scale, which held the fish. The entire family will be fishing in the tournament on August 24th. Speaking of which, you can still sign up as there are a few tournament slots available. Biggest catfish wins $1600.
