Drayton's Renew VNV Subscription Donald Drayton and family renewed their subscription this week. Having read it for a year and renewing their subscription is kind of a big thing because up until a bit more than a year ago, the Drayton's really didn't know Drayton existed. If I remember the story right, they were informed by a family member who had discovered our town on the internet, took an interest and subscribed to the paper. Thank you Drayton's for taking an interest in our community of which you are now technically a part of. If you ever have something about you or just fun to put in the paper, send it our way. Weinlaeder Seed Hosts Growers Meal and Presentation Mrs. Schumacher's 2nd grade class helped Maggie VoM construct and erect the first of several Uttle Ubraries, we should see popping up around town. The Uttle Ubrary houses adult and childrens' books which may be taken out by anyone. Book owners and readers are encouraged to donate their used books to the library as well. Doors Open to All At Little Free Library By VNV"Star"Reporter, Bethany Heinrichs Many home libraries lose appeal over time. Children grow tired of reading the same books over and over while adult selections sit dormant in a box or on a shelf after being read. The Little Free Library allows young and old readers an opportunity to replace 'gently used' books f or, .lkh supy,donate d by other readers. '7lways a gift; never for sale" reinforces the idea of sharing good things to read. Heading up the project, Maggie Vold values literacy and knowledge. "Starting up your own library is virtually free." Maggie emphasizes. Little Library enclosures can be created by reusing broken microwaves, apartment fridges, or any other interesting object capable of serving as an enclosure. Anything goes as long as its' free! How you decorate your 'library' is up to you. Maggie recruited the help of Mrs. Shumacher's 2nd grade class. Maggie chose a non- working microwave. Her husband Matt added wood slats to the top; making it look like a bird house. Maggie painted the entire outside of the microwave and 'perch' white. That's where the kids came in... Each student added a personal touch with neon hand prints all over. This completed 'work of art', pictured above, is prominently displayed and ready for readers at 300 S. 4th Street. Little Libraries are located From left to right, Levi Johnston, Grant Void, Emily Jerome and Maggie Void put the finishing touches on the Uttle Ubrary at the Drayton School nationwide and are pin pointed on a nationwide map, available online. Last week, I received my own converted microwave. Like Maggie's, I also have a bird house perch. Ms. Johnston's 1st grade unleashed their creative genius with a paint splatter motif. Of course, I had a turn too. My library is now ready for readers and is located at 210 S 4th. Street. Book donations to either site will be graciously accepted. Two other sites will be added in near future. Many books will have a Little Free Library on the inside cover with a place where the original owner may sign their name. The remaining space is for additional readers to leave their names and write a short note. The only requirement is to share it. Return it to ANY Little Library or pass it on to a friend. "Take a book- Return a book." Bob the Builder; environmentally friendly children's character says, "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle" All Bob's construction projects use scrap or pre-owned materials. Little Free Library supports this philosophy. If you are interested in knowing more, visit www. If you are interested in membership contact Maggie Void at 701- 520-7299.

"Reputation is what men and women think of us; character is what God and an els know of us." -Thomas Paine large group of gathered at Hastings Tuesday evening for a Seed hosted by Weinlader Seed Drayton. A fine buffet style sewed, which walk away from, even though had an offer to eat, but had stay dedicated this night to paper. So here I am eating holes. The restaurant area and second dining were full, but we'd like folks who might have avoided eating Tuesday because of the large volume of vehicles, there was still plenty of room in the front. Keep that in mind for the future. Especially with the holiday gatherings coming up. Just wanted to keep you all posted and catch a picture of Roger Weinlaeder, facing the camera in the insert above, right. Earl the Penguin [hn'chases FSBTFOABTA00STHS The big talk around town this week is that Earl the Penguin has purchased the First Sugar Beet to Fall Off a Beet Truck at the Four Way Stop This Harvest Season (FSBTFOABTATFWSTHS) or (FSB) for short, from the Valley News andViews. Dollar amounts of the transaction have not been disclosed. In an interview with himself in front of a mirror, Earl explained that he planned to make the sugar beet available to the general public for use primarily on special occasions. The Goat Vs Chief Black Eagle (Capulet) A little Love Story Starring George Custer as Cupid Okay, this one's a bit complicated. I'm trying to lay the foundation this week for some columns I'd like to do on the subject of cognitive distortions. So, try to stick with me to the end of this one to get the perspective. Maybe by that time, I'll have it to. We start here on page one with the Goat going up against Kiowa Chief Black Eagle. We've added Capulet with a question mark to tweak your interest. Hint: Lord Capulet was the father of Juliet in Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. Okay, where does the distortion bit come in? Actually with a rather lengthy but extremely interesting ummm.. introduction which ends with an excerpt from George Armstron Custer's book, "My Life on the Plains." You'll have to piece your way through it all to understand. I'll give you this much. Unlike Romeo and Juliet, the story has a happy ending. Who kind of plays Cupid in the story? George Custer. In his own words no less. You'll go... ahhhh. That's kind of a little twist isn't it? In it, you'll also discover the secret to solving all the problems of life, the universe and everything. On the downside, it's one little problem at a time and it will take you eternity plus 30 seconds to get them all worked out. But hey, you got to start somewhere, right? Turn to Page 5 for the rest of the story. For example, anyone planning a family gathering or a Tupperware Party can rent the beet for only $75 a day. Special holidays like Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's the beet, which Earl claims is now insured through Lloyds of London, will go for a premium price of $150. Earl hopes everyone will support him since his business model is really for the public good. Earl told himself that for every dollar received 50 cents of it will be deposited to the the Poor Penguins of Pembina County Feed a Penguin a Fish Fund (PPOPCFAPAFF). A yet to be designated portion of the fund will be used to provide penguins with fish allergies, ribeye steaks instead. Some say it's part of his ultimate plan for wealth redistribution which will put all the power in his hands through the re-distribution of that wealth which will also pass into his hands and be distributed according to his plan. Being the only penguin in Pembina county, Earls stands to do quite well, especially if his appeal to help the hungry penguins serves to increase his sugar beet income.
