Valley News &Views ii:i !ii= ~= .................... Page 5 August 26th, 2010 August 25th, 1835 An article, the first of six, published in the New York Sun, a newspaper not unlike the Valley News and Views, it was announced that life had been discovered on the moon. Cool animals includingtwo leggedbeavers, bat-like people and unicorns were described in the articles which were published by a Dr. Andrew Grant who was supposedly a colleague of Sir John Herschel, a famous astronomer. (Source: History Channel). August 23rd, 1894 Drayton Echo Judging from the immense crop of wheat the farmers have on the Minnesota side of the Red river that is tributary to this market, the Drayton ferry will have to hustle itself to handle the business that will soon be coming. Bob Long was cutting wheat with his new Deering bicycle binder on Thursday evening of last week when the electricity began to play around promiscuously. The sudden dash of a fierce bolt, which evidently struck something, shocked the modesty and most everything else about Bob, and his horses, bringing all to their knees in a very sudden manner, but as Bob righted himself upon the binder seat quite as quickly as the horses arose from their posture of adoration, calamity was averted. Of course this is not the first time Bob had been upon his knees in a thunder storm, but he never struck the desirable attitude quite so quickly before nor' in the midst of such peculiar environments. Bob survives. A party of prairie chicken Sportsmen went northon the train Tuesday accompanied by a half dozen fine bird dogs. August 24th, 1917 Drayton Echo Hugo, Okla. Aroused over Senator Thomas P. Gore's attempt to force an amendment to the appropriation bill, prohibiting use of funds in waging war outside of United States territory, 400 citizens of Hugo and Choctaw county have demanded that Gore resign. Some of the threshers in this vicinity have started their machines and by the first of next week most of them will be running with full force. There have been some very good yields reported and in some places the crops are turning out better than was expected. A good rain is need just now to help the corn and potato crops. Nate Upham left last Friday for Grand Forks where he joined a party of North Dakota men who left Saturday for Washington to lay before the government the protest of the farmers of this state against the undue lowering of the price to be paid for the wheat crop this year. August 23rd, 1935 The Red River Valley Leader The whole world joined in mourning the death of Will Rogers and Wiley Post last week. Nobody liked the new tax bill that congress was working on and the senate finance committee had hard work making up its mind as to the form it would recommend. First it altered almost every provision of the bill passed by the house and changed it from a "soak the rich" measure to one which would soak practically everyone. Railroad section men found a young man near the track north of Bowesmont last Friday morning in a helpless condition. He had been robbed and thrown off a freight car on Wednesday. When brought to the Drayton hospital it was found that his leg was broken. The young man is from Texas and came up north for the harvest. He suffered a long wait lying in the weeds from Wednesday night until Friday before given assistance. August 26th, 1939 The first Major League baseball game was broadcast on television via station W2XBS. The station would eventually become WNBC- TM. The game between the Cincinnati Reds and the Brooklyn Dodgers was broadcst by Red Barber. There were only about' 400 television sets in the New York area at the time. The broadcast was actually produced as a demonstration for the New York Worlds Fair. (Source: History Channel). Buy an Earl's Sandwhlch and Get a Free Water News we can use?

Army and navy sea and air forces have joined battle with a huge Japanese armada attempting to smash the American offensive in the Solomon Islands, the navy announced Tuesday, and so far have inflicted heavy damage on the enemy.

When you are prescribed a new drug it will do cross searches to make sure that the new drug is compatible with the drugs you are currently taking and screen for possible drug interaction problems like allergies, based on your records. If you are a "Flex Card" holder you will also be able to use it at the new store. When making a purchase, Flex Card holders can swipe their card. The point of sale system (intelligent cash register) will separate regular purchases, such as a greeting card, from deductable purchases including a variety of prescription and over the counter items. Not all pharmacies offer this service and if they don't have it, you don't get the deduction. Not everything in the store comes out of an episode of the Jetson's. The store has your standard drugstore items plus gifts and specialty items. Old fashioned gift wrapping will also be part of their bill of fare. If you're at the clinic and it's 40 below zero, you don't have to leave the building to get a prescription filled. The drugstore, clinic and physical therapy center are all connected. And in about a month, Dr. Dunham will have moved his eye clinic into the same building so citizens will have a one stop medical center. All and all a very nice addition to our community. Speaking of which, Laurie had a great deal of praise for DEDC0. She said she was elated with the way DEDCO reached out to her and all the help they've been in getting her in and helping to set up the new building. That sounds pretty good all around. So, next time you're in the vicinity, stop in and say hi, even if you don't have a prescription to be filled. Have a look around and see what you think for yourself. I'm pretty sure you'll be pleased. five o'clockTuesday morning at Memorial Hospital in Dakota Tales and Trails Continued From Page 2 hillock from head injuries sustained in a baseball game played at Karlstad last Sunday afternoon. An all day rain delayed harvest on Wednesday. Had the weather remained dry some of the farmers would have completed their wheat harvest. Yield reports are large. Barley is reported going from 30 to 70 bushels to the acre while wheat ranges up to 50 bushels. August 30th, 1956 Drayton Leader Drayton boys and girls will troop back to school next Tuesday morning, September 4, to begin another nine months of study. Area farmers express themselves as well pleased with this year's crop stating that it is one of the best wheat crops in years with some wheat running as high as 40 to 45 bushels per acre with quality above average and test weights near standard. Weather conditions during the past week were ideal for harvesting and combining made good progress while the warm weather hasteed the ripening of small grains and late crops. The durum wheat crop is late in parts of Pembina county with about 25% of the acreage still green. p.m to We're finishing up the final touches this week.: can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it," (Goethe) and "If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them." (Thoreau) If Drayton pursues a proposed plan to become a "Media Arts Center" and sponsors a Statewide "Storytelling Festival" next year, the future of this Parting Shot I got a kick out of this picture taken at the KodaBank customer appreciation picnic the other day. Center is Wayne Stegman, looking kind of hungry as the bank crew prepares his burger. That's Pete Anderson at left, Kristi Quibell with the bun and Gail Melland, yielding the thongs. I was going to title this, "How Many Bank People Does it Take to Make a Hamburger...?" However the event was so good and the bank crew did such a great job, I thought it would be cruel, so I didn't do it. community, in my view, becomes reality. The "castles" were built at Old Fashioned Christmas, the "foundation" was laid with Bound for Blessing at Riverfest, and now we form partnerships to put them together for a new future. Communities that build their assets in heritage tourism can grow, thrive and prosper. A summer festival in folk stories, folk music, and the media arts fills a niche in destination tourism in this region and in the state. Like the author in '9, Whole New Mind" states, creativity and innovation will drive value in future business. For me, "rural roots" really matter. All Americans have a common connection to a rural place somewhere. And stories take you there.
