Page 8 November 7th 2013 Welcome back to the Laiken and Taylor Column. Volleyball districts have started, and the Drayton- Valley-Edinburg team has been playing hard. They won their first game on Thursday the 31st of October against Minto, the score being 3-0. But then, they lost their game against Park River the next day, 0-3. On Monday they played Grafton, and we'll let you know the details later. The 4-6 boys basketball team had a tournament on November 2nd, and they won their game against North Border, but lost their other game. They had a home game the 5th against North Border. On Thursday the 7th they go to Park River, and their last game of the season is the 16th at a jamboree. The one-act play performed fortheElementary school November 4th, for the public November 5th, possibly the high school November 6th, and went to contest in Larimore November 7th. Hopefully they did well and will move on to State. We hope everyone had a safe and fun Halloween! Don't eat all your candy at once. In social studies Mr. Thompson is always telling us interesting facts, so we were inspired to share a few of our own. Canned food was invented in 1810, but the can opener was invented 48 years later! Kind of silly if you think about it... The word "clip" has opposite meanings: to attach and to cut off. A group of porcupines is called a "prickle". Giraffes can survive with only two hours of sleep a day. The word "set" has more definitions than any other single word- 424. Veteran's Day is coming up, and we just want to say a special thanks to our Armed Forces fighting for our country. Thanks for reading The Laiken and Taylor Column column.

The Never Politically Correct Ole A hooded robber burst into a Minnesota bank and forced the tellers to load a sack full of cash. On his way out the door, a brave Minnesota customer grabbed the hood and pulled it off, revealing the robbers face. The robber shot the customer without a moments hesitation. He then looked around the bank and noticed one of the tellers looking straight at him. The robber instantly shot him also. Everyone in the bank, by now very scared, looked intently down at the floor in silence. The robber yelled, "Well, did anyone else see my face? There are a few moments of utter silence in which everyone was plainly too afraid to speak. Then, one old Norwegian man named Ole from Wisconsin tentatively raised his hand and said, "My wife got a pretty good look at you." A whole stack of memories never equal one little hope. -Charles M.
