Pase 8 THE WALSH COUNTY PRESS WEDNESDAY, MAY 17, 2017 N By Kevin Skavhaug Throwback games and hookin' leeches... Best I remember, the Ru- bik's Cube showed up around here i.n the late 1980's. It seemingly disap- peared into oblivion not long after. Until about a month ago that is. All of a sudden the Ru- bik's Cube is popular again. Kids everywhere seem to have one of the little plas- tic cubes. I never could spin it in the right combi- nation of twists and turns to get all six sides the same color, so for me the game was short lived. It came out of the box perfectly solved and that's the way it News and Notes from Park River Area School stayed for me. I" hadn't seen a Rubik's Cube around here for about 20 years, but now they are everywhere again. Funny how some things that go around come back around every now and then. On the bus the other day a young girl asked me to guess what was rattling around in a little pouch she was carrying. As she jiggled it I said, "Rocks." "Nope, Clara said, "not rocks." "Your brother's baby teeth?" "No, gross," she said. "Ok," I said, "Marbles." Yep, marbles. Now, there's another throwback game. Marbles were the "king thing" back in the day.

By Brett Omdahl PARK RIVER, N.D. -- With less than a week left in the high school baseball regular season, the Park River/Fordville-Lankin Aggies recently took time to hon- or their mothers. The team was continuing a tra- dition of completing one service project for each spring baseball season. Last year the team raked leaves for the Park River Good Samaritan Center. This year they decided to serve those that too of- ten serve them. The whole baseball team was on board for providing a special meal and short presentation for those they hold so dear. The din- ner date was set and invitations were sent out. While the Aggies continued to practice and play through their reg- ular season schedule,,they took ex- tra time to put together a slideshow presentation that would be shown at the event. Using their own baseball funds, they purchased all the food and beverages needed to make this meal successful. The meal featured a taco salad bar, homemade chick- en tortilla soup, and cake compli- ments of Mrs. Mary Martin. The evening began with play- ers escorting their mothers to a seat of their choice. In addition to pro- viding them with a meal, each player gave their room the atten- tion that they deserve. Following the meal two lucky mother's names were randomly se- lected and they were .presented with a spa gift package, which was donated by Malady Hagen. The special presentation also in- - cluded recognition of this year's seniors and their respective moth- ers. Each senior boy presented tfieir rnom with a rose, a hug, and a memory they won't soon forget. Capping off the night was the slideshow presentation that fea- tured each player's special mes- sage to their mom. This video can be seen on AggieVision May 15th - 21st.
