PAGE 2 THE PRESS FEBRUARY 16, 2011 Retired but still community involved Recollections of 32 Years in the State Senate I have been connected with many projects in my 32 years in the Senate. My first project was establishing, a bike path around the grounds of the State Developmental Center in Grafton about 1979. I first got the cooper- ation of the state and the city of Grafton. I then contacted the N.D. National Guard. They agreed to construct the bike path of nearly one and one half miles. They camped in the Grafton City Park. Another project was obtaining an M60 field tank for the American Legion in Park River. Again I contacted the National Guard and General Keith Bjerke in particular. The conditioned a tank stored at Camp Grafion in Devils Lake and delivered it to Park River and supervised the placing of the tank. on a cement platform west of the county build- rag. Another military project was getting a fiel d artillery gun for the Oration Legion and the Heritage Center. One was located in the south and was transported to the Graton Heritage Center by Marvin Altendorf of Minto at no . cost. Another major project that I was involved in was the conver- sion of the Grafton Developmental Center buildings, North A and North B into public apartments. With plenty of help and a lot of meetings by local peo- ple the project was completed and Is operated by a private firm. Another touchy project was conducting a Red River flood meeting in Warsaw, N.D. during a recess of the legislature in Febuary 1997. Robert "Tork" Kilichowski and I conducted the meeting where we asked Sheriff Wild to be present in case of any trouble. The meeting went well and as a result the people were willing to accept buyouts of their flooded homes and people agreed to cooperate with Government officials. I was involved in many other smaller projects that turned out well. The only big disappointment was the project to establish a Veteran's Home in Grafton. It was defeated by the Long Term Care State Association. I would like to list some of the local peo- ple who fought against a Veteran's home but I won't embarrass them. Today there is a great need for a Veteran's home partly because of the many con- flicts our service men are engaged in around the world. I would also like to discuss one of the best projects I was involved in, the Veteran's Clinic located at the hospital on the Developmental Center grounds: With the excel- lent help of Senator Conrad, Senator Dorgan and Representative Pomeroy we were successful in establishing one of the first outreach Veteran's clinics in North Dakota. I was so proud at the dedication at the Collette Auditorium when our congres- sional delegation was able to bring the head of the Veteran's Administration to Grafton for the dedication and reception after- wards.
