Valley News & Views Columns: "i, iiii i  iiiiiiiiiiiiii,iiii iii :!i!!i: iliii =  = Page 5 September 26th, 2013 Joy In the Morning "Best cook I ever ate off off" That is how a young friend described my mother Edith years ago. That sentiment was experienced by many over the years - families she helped growing up; threshing crews over the years; students at Drayton Public School; friends and visitors at her home; and her four boys with extended family. Mother's life on earth has ended but she left a legacy of providing for the needs of the people around her. Mother used her talents in demonstrating self-giving love. Self-giving love is a basic principle of God's Kingdom. It is a universal principle which connects people together. Jesus Christ gave us an example of how to live the self-giving life here on earth. The example was for the present, not only for His by Clint Van future Kingdom. In Matthew 6:10, Jesus made it clear when He taught his disciples to pray, "Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven" (K]V). It is the very first request He made in this reverent prayer. Christ Jesus said yes to the principle of self-giving love and sacrifice. Jesus of Nazareth left family, occupation, means of income, and home. He became the homeless wondering Son of Man who said yes to people everywhere He went. When people at a wedding needed wine, Jesus said yes. When people had a faith for healing, He said yes to their physical needs. When friends mourned for their dead, He said yes to life. When Jesus met a socially outcast woman at the well, He said yes to her spiritual need. When the Heavenly Camp Father offered Jesus Christ up as a sacrifice for broken men and women, He said yes to the Cross and all of its physical suffering. It is my prayer that we all can see our opportunities to experience this self-giving love in meeting the needs of those around us in our daily life. God provides the opportunity but it takes our intentional choice to say yes to this Kingdom living principle. Self-giving love is at the core of God's Kingdom and Jesus Christ's message. When we say yes to Jesus Christ and God's Kingdom living principle, there is sacrifice involved but it results in unsurpassed joy in the morning. Psalms 30:5 tells us "...weeping may last through the night, but joy comes in the morning" (NLT). God Bless my mother in the dawn of life. Imagination Emporium Continued From Page 1 think they were laughing at me, but I'm not sure. Just before I left, Lisa's mum, Jan Burns stopped by the store, just in time for our photograph. Jan is full of life too. She said she helps out in the store some, but is only up in these parts now for three months out of the year. She spends the rest of her time in sunnier climes.

Protesters in Leith ND Continued From Page 1 appear". He then set up shop for a while in Montana before moving to Leith in 2012, where he eventually bought up 12 lots. Schoep is the chairman of the National Socialist Movement (NSM). NSM is a white civil rights party that operates in the United States and around the world. NSM was originally called the National Socialist American Workers Freedom Movement and was founded in 1974 by Robert Brannen and Cliff Herrington, former members of the American Nazi Party. Schoep has been chairman since 1994. Ironcially, 6.25% of 16 citizens living in Leith are, or better is, black. Bobby Harper. According to Keving Kargel, Harper was pretty much at ease through the day, but did note in an interview with the Grand Forks Herald that violence is hard to estimate and he was glad the large number of highway patrol and riot police were on hand. There were about 30 in all, with 14 fully suited riot police. Kevin said the protesters whoenteredthetownthrough the one availabe entrance were overall good humored. They consisted of about 150 from the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation, about 30 miles away, a large number of farmers and students, and some spectators. Kevin got to share a" few words with Cobb, whose home was adroned with colorful Nazi flags. Cobb claimed to be a separationist rather than a supremisist. There was a town hall gathereing where, the 20 or so of Cobb's supporters met with and answered questions for protestors. Cobb's group was not well received by the protesters. Inside, it did get a little heated and the sheriff had to silence the crowd and remove an elderly man and woman continually shouted expletives toward Cobb snd Schoep. Kevin described one of which I thought were the best moments of the daywhen his sister Kris walked up to the riot police who were holding a tight formation and told them they should move over a little bit out of the sun andinto the shade before they fell over and died. For anyone who knows Kris, this would be "so Kris." There were a few smirks. Kris walked away and about five minutes later the troops regrouped in the shade. Large community gatherings in North Dakota usually mean food, so I asked Kevin if there was any hotdish or jello around. He told me there was none, but one group of protesters were handing out granola bars. I'm guessing probably some of the students from UND. The day ended relatively peacfully. Chase Iron Eyes, from Standing Rock, told the crowd that his people would be keeping an eye on Leith and community members have started a legal defense fund and are looking for an attorney in case legal issues should arise. Kevin and I speculated a bit on the future of this group in North Dakota. He made a good point. Around here, especially in very desolate rural areas like Leith, you all have to get along and help each other, in order to survive the harsh winters. You can only survive twenty below zero and a 30 mile an hour north wind for so long when the furnace kicks out in the middle of a storm. Digging yourself out or getting your vehicle started without the right equipment can be quite a challenge as well. In the end, nature has a way of taking care of things, one way or another. Be interesting to see how it all works out. EXTRA In late breaking news, WDAZ television reported ear;oer that the state of North Dakota will issue a final letter to Craig Cobb this week ordering him out of his house in Leath because of health concerns.

Rose Altendorf Duane Altendorf Family Cathy Altendorf Family Michelle and Dale Ososki Family Cobb says he will use the Civil Rights act to sue the city of Leith and the state of North Dakota, if he is forced from his home. Careful Cobb, you might not want to fight too hard for that place. Trying to find the out house in a good old fashioned North Dakota blizzard can be quite a challenge. Using it even worse.
