Pisek led 30-1 at halftime on the way to a 60-3 victory. About 200 attended, and it is to be supposed that many stayed on for the post-game dance with Anton Hrabik's orchestra. Religious news continued to be, important in February, 1911. "WJ Arnold, colored, of Clark University, Atlanta," packed the Lutheran Churches in town and at Golden Valley. Those who heard him said he gave one of the greatest lectures ever heard in the city. The same week the "Kvinde Forening" [Ladies Aid] of the Lutheran Church met in the home of Rev. and Mrs. Shureson. In the middle of the month the United Norwegian Lutheran Church hosted Revs. Martinson and Nelson, missionaries to China. A week later the Methodist Church had to cancel its services because "the furnace hadn't arrived." The Catholic Church made news for the first time in several months: Rev. Father John Maxwell was appointed parish priest for Park River, the first permanent priest the St. Veronica's Parish has had. Maxwell was also to serve the mission churches at Osnabrock and Milton. Father Maxwell had arrived recently from Ireland. He succeeded Father Simpson who had ministered to the mission for the previous 17 years. The new Presbyterian minister, the Rev. Mi:. Finlayson, was married in Winnipeg. The city council signed an agreement with John Amoth for use of the city hall as a movie theater. Amoth will pay $.75 per night for lights and 20% of the cash receipts for rent. With the issue of its 23 February the Park River Republican went out of business, and for another three years the Park River Gazette remained the only newspaper in town. I don't know if all the children were above average, but it had been another quiet month in Park River. Young farmers elected to committee Three young farm families were elected to the North Dakota Farm Bureau Young Farmers and Ranchers Committee, during the recently held YF&R Leadership Conference at the Seven Seas in Mandan, Jan. 21-23. The committee is comprised of nine young farmers and ranchers between the ages of 18 and 35, elected from each of the nine Farm Bureau districts across the state. The purpose of the committee is to provide leadership, networking and growth opportunities for young farmers and ranchers. Elected to the District 1 position are Spencer and Rachel Bina who farm and operate Bina Seed in Lankin. They represent young farmers and ranchers in Cavalier, Pembina, Walsh, Nelson and Grand Forks counties. Elected to the District 2 position Mark and Bridget Belter, who live in Fargo, but farm near Leonard. They represent young farmers and ranchers in Griggs, Steele, Traill, Barnes and Cass counties. Elected to the District 7 position are Kristopher and KaSondra Staiger who ranch west of Baldwin. They represent young farmers and ranchers in Mercer, Oliver, Morton, Grant, Sioux, Burleigh and Emmons counties. Other committee members are: YF&R Chair couple Weston and Teresa Dvorak of Manning, who also represent District 9; District 8 representative Courtney Hawbaker of Portal; District 6 representatives Steven and Katie Heger of Underwood; District 5 representative Richie Heinrich of Medina; District 4 representative Darrick Johnson of Wolford; and District 3 representatives Micah and Joannie Brandenburg of Edgeley. Finalists named in YF&R Challenge Four young farmers from around the state were named the finalists in the North Dakota Farm Bureau Young Farmer and Rancher Challenge, held at the YF&R Leadership Conference in Manda'n, Jan. 21-23. Courtney Hawbaker of Portal, Spencer Bina of Lankin, Dean Knell of Pick City and Katie Pinke of Wishek will each receive an all-expense paid trip to the 2011 NDFB Convention and Exposition in Minor next November to compete in a "traditional" Discussion Meet round with a question from American Farm Bureau. The winner of the North Dakota YF&R Challenge will receive several prizes as well as an all- expense paid trip to compete in the AFBF YF&R Discussion Meet held during the American Farm Bureau Convention in Hawaii in January 2012. The finalists for the Challenge were chosen based on a judged 15-minute issues-discussion and a judged 2-minute videotaped interview designed to simulate a television interview. The YF&R Challenge Competition is open to farmers and ranchers between the ages of 18 and 35, was designed to simulate a committee meeting in which individuals discuss issues and surface solutions to those issues and to be able to speak comfortably with the media regarding issues related to farming and ranching.
