Monday, September 2 is designated as "Labor Day". The "New Webster's Dict. & Thesaurus" explains this is the "day set apart as a legal or bank holiday in honor of the workers." Historically the American labor force has been made up of some of the hardest working and most productive people in the world. Our flee-enterprise system has encouraged and allowed enterprising men and women to envision, develop, invent, and produce systems, machines, and buildings which have changed the world for the better for billions of people. To celebrate these hard working people Americans take a weekend off. Reading from the "Contemporary English Version" of John 5:17 we hear Jesus saying, "My Father has never stopped working, and that is why I keep on working". Let us take note of a few ways in which God never takes a day off from helping His people. Hebrews 2:10 calls Jesus the "Captain of our salvation". According to "The Complete Biblical Library" the Greek literally means "the pioneer of their deliverance". He "opened the way to God in heaven". Jesus goes before us, directs us, fights for us, and gives us victory after victory, until at last we are safely in our eternal home. Secondly, according to Hebrews 4:14 Jesus is our "Great High Priest". Because of the trials and temptations He endured and overcame, Jesus understands our struggles. Therefore, we know we may "come boldly unto the throne of grace" and receive both mercy and grace (v:16). Finally, Jesus acts as our "Intercessor" (Hebrews 7:25). In our time of failure or of need the Lord intercedes before the Father on our behalf. The Psalmist confidently declared, "...he that keepeth thee will not slumber". We may take a day off to celebrate our hard work, but God never does. He's always watching over us. By pastor leroy aufenkamp We have several "Whimsical Wednesdays" coming up. Sep. 4th: Dawn Rorvig from ND Protection and Advocacy will talk about disability resources in the state; Sep llth: Jon Brosseau will be providing entertainment; Sep 18th: Tracy Wicken from the ND School for the Blind will be talking about "Living With Low Vision" and resources available through the School for the Blind; Sep. 25th: Andrew Kirking, Pembina County Emergency Management Office will talk about how to be prepared in an emergency like a flood or storm, and what the county does to prepare for an emergency. Transit drivers in our state are required to receive several types of training. In May, PASS Training was held in Grafton for transit drivers from Pembina County and Walsh County. Drivers from Cavalier County, Ramsey County and Barnes County also attended. PASS stands for Passenger Service and Safety. Drivers cover a lot of material including ADA laws, wheelchair securement, customer service, defensive driving, how to handle emergency situations and maltreatment awareness. Not only is it a time to learn the rules of the road, but to also learn from other drivers on how they handle things, and to hear examples of situations that other drivers encounter. Drivers for Pembina County Public Transit that attended are Drayton drivers Kristi Juhl and Bev Aufenkamp, Cavalier drivers Terry Koropatnicki and Jim Kemp. Director Sally Kliniske also attended. Cavalier driver Leah Austfjord attended the class in Minot last October. The ND DOT requires to be certified in Passenger Service and Safety every three years.

Pembina County Meals and Transportation - Call: 454-6586 Back When Continued From Page 2 He sent us the following; For "Starters" the title "Store String and Botten Bread" needs to have some explanation: Store string, of course, comes from "The" store. Every store in Drayton had a ball of string hanging on the ceiling with the end of the string dangling down to the counter. (All stores had a counter). When going to the grocery store the drill was to pass the "list" to the clerk behind the counter. Nobody had the bad manners to touch anything on the shelves .... only the clerk could do that. He would gather up the listed groceries and move them to the counter. One end of the counter had a big roll of brown paper. The groceries were then wrapped up in the brown paper - string would be tied and with a "snap", the clerk would break the string. (I never did get the hang of how the string was snapped though I have had sore fingers from trying). Wrapping of the groceries in this fashion reduced the need for paper bags and reduced expense of the transaction. Store String was never wasted. The string collected from wherever it might be would be added to the "string ball" that every house in town had. Store string was used again and again. A fishing line, a kite string, wrapping packages for mailing (Scotch Tape hadn't been invented yet), emergency shoe lace replacements, tying up a chicken or turkey for roasting, and on and on. The size of the ball of store string was quite a status symbol and more than a few kids showed off the size of their ball of store string to me. In a way it was probably equated to the wages that the Dad of that family brought home. They could afford more and bigger packages! The paper used for wrapping groceries was always folded up and kept on top of the cupboard where the Sears and Wards catalogues was kept, just under the electric meter. During special holiday's, stores used fancier printed paper with images to match the season. Also the string was sometimes fancier. In the "Ready to Wear" part of the store string was really nice al Christmas time. That string went on a special ball kept in the lower drawer of the sewing machine. I wasn't given privileges to ever go into the sewing machine drawers, but I vividly remember the string having a thread of silver along with green and red thread. It sure was pretty. Botten Bread (Bought-en) Thursday's were always Mom's bread baking day. Only a few Thursdays ever passed that this didn't happen. Those few were when Mom was suffering from terrible migraine headaches or we just didn't have the wherewithal to bake bread that day. But the days that bread was baked would always be known, all the way over to Mitz's barn .... way down the alley. The baked bread smell is forever buried deep in the memory box. Morn had a bread pan for mixing and kneading the dough. Enough to make 6 or 7 loves plus maybe a pan of buns if there was enough. The dough was made of bare essentials - yeast, water, salt and flour. Generally there was flour (often a "Relief" Commodity) but yeast had to be bought. It wasn't expensive at all but when dealing with pennies .... The bread would be placed in 2 individual baking pans ............. .............. : --:: !!i i!i i~i~ i~! i!!~!

On thru Sunday the bread was fine but the next three or four days found the bread becoming a bit dry and not nearly as good as a few days before. But the bread generally lasted until the next Thursday when the drill would be repeated again and again and again. A day or two before "baking day" bread pudding and croutons for soup and sometimes crumbs were added to the fried warmed up potatoes we generally had for supper. Now comes the part about "Botten Bread". In the summer time jobs were a bit more available and a few extra dollars were sometimes in Mom's purse. Once in a long time if we ran short of home made bread, she would send me to the "store" to buy a loaf of bread. This was "Botten" bread. We had a choice between "Cox's" and "Eddies". Nineteen cents a loaf. A lot of the families in Drayton were about in the same financial boat as we were and homemade bread was a staple. But all of us kids favored "Botten" bread and considered it a real treat. It was soft and the crust was soft and it wasn't full of big holes like bread that rose too high before baking, and Mom's generally was in that category as her bread was bare essentials.., not as fancy as that made with milk, honey, and such. I have to add at this point that to a kid, homemade bread was OK but not nearly as wonderful as "Botten'. Then some years later, during the War years, I worked on a Section Gang on the Railroad during summer months. I carried a lunch bucket like all the rest. My lunch bucket packed by Mom always had a sandwich or two made out of homemade bread.
