Page 8 August 15th, 2013 Valley News t and Views Welcome back to the Laiken and Taylor Column! School's almost here, and coming up fast. While the kids are savoring the summer days, they still have to prepare for the upcoming year. School starts on the 20th of August, and while most kids will miss summer, many are also excited! The football players, starting practice on the 15th, are already preparing for games, such as: August 27th, against Four Winds in Drayton at 7:00 (IV only), and August 31 vs. North Star at Cando at 2:00 (again, IV only). Thomas Blawat, an eighth grade football player, was questioned about his feelings of the new season dawning. He said "Good, but I didn't see many Junior High kids signed up, so we might have a smaller team this year." He was asked if there was anything else he would like to say, but he had nothing to add. Ariel Deppa, also an eighth grader, said, "I'm excited for it, but I don't think I'm ready for conditioning! I miss knocked people over." She joked. Volleyball has a later season than usual, starting on the 19th of August, the day before school. They have games on September 3rd against Dakota Prairie in McVille at 5:00, and September 5th against Grafton in Edinburg at 4:00. The girls have been working hard to get in shape for the season ahead of them. The 4-6 girls basketball team starts practice on the first day of school, and has a game on August 27th in Grafton. We asked Madison Hermanson, a fifth grade basketball player, how she felt about the upcoming season. She responded "Good." When asked if there were any comments she felt she had to share, she too had nothing more to say. Good luck to all of the teams mentioned, and also to the 4-6 boys basketball team!

Sausage Continued From Page 3 famous and famous nation- wide, Sausages of the Week, let us know. If you're out their drooling, but can't get here to get it, let us know as well. Maybe we can make an arrangement. Now, for this week's Sausage of the Week. Kelly's Smoked Cheddar Beef Sticks. I just got in a fight with Kelly. I got to taste some of the leftover sausage that didn't get stuffed but was made into a patty and smoked. It was absolutely dynamite. I told Kelly it would be so good on a hamburger bun. Kind of like a really good grilled cheeseburger with the cheese on the inside. He told me to forget about it. It's enough work stuffing the little devils let alone partying a mess of them as well. He said if I ever mentioned it again he'd banish me from the sausage tasting. Of course I kept my mouth shut. Dog Days of August Summer Savings More Sovhlgs?

Tastes like a really good inside out cheeseburger. However, I'd get hotdog buns and put two or three sticks on a bun for the same effect. Maybe heated through on a grill with a toasted bun. Yup, that's how I'll do it. We'll just call them his no pattying smoked cheddar and beef cheeseburger rolls. I know... I should never write this column when I'm hungry.

Hard work still remains. Yet the first step in the process is that ah-ha moment. Probably the best advice for the person searching for opportunities is to be aware. In every situation, think about what might be. When you find one that makes your mind whirl with possibilities, it is time to do some further exploration.

Congressional Approval Rating A driver was stuck in a traffic jam on the highway just outsideWashington, DC. Nothing was moving. Suddenly, a man knocks on the driver's window. The driver rolls down the window and asks, "What's going on?" "Terrorists have kidnapped the entire US Congress, and they're asking for a $100 million dollar ransom ... otherwise, they're going to douse them all in gasoline and set them on fire. We're going from car to car collecting donations." "How much is everyone giving on average?" the driver asks. The man replies, "Roughly a gallon."

C. Gardner, Jr. 1903 April 13--The East Grand Forks Transportation Company's Fram made its first trip of the season under Captain Anton Lystad. It steamed upriver.

An April 17 announcement said that the Grand Forks had no orders so far and had been up for sale since the previous fall. April 26--The Fram came into Drayton with 238 cords of wood for the Drayton Brick Company. It was the first shipment of the thousand cords the company had ordered. April 29 or May 1--The Fram was at Drayton with a second load of wood for the Drayton Brick Company. May 6--The Fram came into Grand Forks with a load of wheat and wood from the north. May 7--John D.

May 10--The Grand Forks, six barges, and six warehouses and hoisting elevators located from Belmont to Acton and belonging to the Minneapolis & Northern Co. were sold to the East Grand ForksTransportationCo.

Commodore Lystad took the Grand Forks to Belmont, where its nine barges would be loaded with 35,000 bushels of wheat. However, Captain Bruce Griggs remained in command of the boat and Captain Slattery, formerly of the Fram, was also on board since the company intended to run two crews night and day. James Little, a mate on the Fram, had recently gained a captain's license. May 14--The Grand Forks returned to Grand Forks. May 19--The Grand Forks unloaded 500 cords of wood for the Drayton Brick Company. It had picked up the wood just below Grand Forks and would load some wheat.

The boat then left with two barges for the south. July ?--The government dredge was working twenty miles north of Grand Forks.
