Page 5 October, 17, 2013 I am writing this on the very tail end of September and we've already experienced fail weather changeability. Real rain even. Maple, liquid amber and ash leaves are all changing color. Cool nights. Darkness is coming sooner and staying around longer. Hear me heave a big sigh. I like fall, but I dearly love the longer days of summer. Somehow I know I cannot have it both ways. I do. I really do know that. I thought to review another suspense novel this month. Stranded by Dani Pettrey is a real page turner in an unusual setting, a cruise ship sailing to Alaska. I challenge you to guess the ending. I couldn't that's for sure. A definite sign of a good mystery writer. I can't wait to find Submerged and Shattered, the first two books in the Alaskan Courage series. Dani Pettrey is a fairly new author and definitely one to watch. But as I inferred, I have another book that I am enthralled with. I heard about it over a year ago and you know how sometimes we put things off, or perhaps that is just me. But I received One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp. This is not a book you zip through in a couple of hours but is one of the few books that I will go back and read again and again. One Thousand Gifts has been on many major bestseller lists and the reviews were superb. Ann was on a search for more joy in a life that had seen some truly hard places, something like so many of us have experienced. She was challenged to keep a list of the blessings that came to her each day and became so excited at the things she was seeing, that the journal laid open on her counter as she went about her daily chores as a farm wife, mother of six children, speaker and writer. Eucharisteo. She has plumbed the depths of this magnificent word and shares with her readers how a life of thanksgiving helps one realize the blessings, that bring deep joy along with senses that are sharpened to perceive greater depth and the wealth of our daily living. "Snippets of the list that never ends." Some numbered items from her list are: boys laughing, laundry flapping, wind rushing through an open truck window, a glorious moonrise, spring on the breeze. Eucharisteo. This book has become one of my blessings. Ann has helped me look around with new eyes. Her word use creates pictures. I know reading One Thousand Gifts will make your life richer too. Ann is known for her exceptionalblogandweb site, and www.aholyexperience. com. My great news is the release of An Untamed Heart, the story of Ingeborg's life before she made the journey from Norway to America and North Dakota. So many readers have asked for this book and now I know what her life was like too. And I love the cover. This has been a wild two months with the releases of my other books starting with Wake the Dawn in August, A Pioneer Christmas and No Ordinary Owl in September. So happy reading and writing and enjoy fail. Dakota Tales and Trails Continued From Page 2 booth to promote development of future e- commerce.

Business Success in Small Communities Continued From Page 2 economic downturn, such as the '80s farm crisis. .Being good at bootstrapping and bartering, thus lowering the income side of the equation .Supporting the community through needed goods and services as well as general participation in community growth The business owner may look at financial success as meeting his or her financial needs. He or she wants some of the things in life, but research has found that many small-business owners also include other measures; they are not governed by dollars alone. "Yet just having your business in a small town does not mean that financial success cannot be achieved in traditional terms," says Muske. "There are examples all-around of people reaching financial success while maintaining a small- town business." This is easier to do today because of the technology. First, the Internet allows that owner to reach out, not only to the next county, but across the U.S. and the 1956 annual homecoming celebration of Drayton high school, October 11- 12, was the coronation of Larry Albrecht as King and Susan Raney as Queen in the gymnasium Friday evening. Twila Fleckten, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Fleckten will represent globe, with products and services. Technology such as the Internet allows small businesses not only to sell worldwide but to market their products or services globally, too.. People can find you, read your reviews and know all about your business without ever stepping foot in the store. "Those people who are doing Internet sales often comment how surprised they are at where some of the orders originate," says Volk-Schill. Technology also allows the smail-business owner to be indistinguishable from his or her larger competitor. It allows an owner to focus on a niche market that the larger competitor does not feel is worth the time and effort to pursue. But that niche market can result in significant returns and growth for perhaps just one individual meeting the need. When surveyed, business owners who are successful in small communities say they feel as successful as owners in much larger locations, whether that success is based on traditional terms or other measures. So yes, you can start and operate a successful business in a small community. Muske suggests you remember this statement from Christopher Morely, an American journalist, novelist, essayist and poet who also produced stage productions for a few years and gave college lectures: "There is only one success - to be able to spend your life in your own way."
