Let the teachers do the teaching, not technology By Ran Setness PARK RIVER, N.D. -- On March 7, Park River Area Ele- mentary received a technology grant around $70,000 with match- ing contributions from local school to total $140,000. The plan is to order 120 Apple iPad minis for kindergarten through second grade and 110 Google chrome pads in grades 3-6. I believe kinder- garten and first grade kids learn best by interaction with other kids and things being taught by our teachers. I believe we have ex- cellent teachers in first grade and kindergarten part of our school. Let's let them teach. I believe spending tax payers money's on these kind of things is a waste of tax payers' money. Sure we get a $70,000 grant but that too is tax payers' money too. We can do bet- ter. Editor "s Note: Setness is from Park River, ND around, she tries to brighten everyone's day." Evangeline has been coming to Park River's First Care Health Center for most of her four years. The first time they came to Park River was when Mandi was on maternity leave. Mandi worked for the Altru Health System and began doing locum work in Park River. Her family would stay with her on occa- sion. The long hallways of First Care Health Center are where Evangeline first learned to walk. Now, four-years-old and full of stories, Evangeline, her one-year-old sister, Ruby, and Good Samaritan Society celebrates National Nursing HomeWeek their father still spend long on-call weekends at First Care now that Mandi has joined the FCHC staff as a family medicine doctor. They live in Grand Forks, but on Park River weekends, Evangeline refers to the on- call room as their fancy hotel. Mandi said that whenever she gets called to the ER, Evangeline asks, "Can I come, too?" Then Evangeline chooses an item from the stash in her mom's office to give to the patient. If you ask her, she has it all planned out. "Springtime I am going to give books. In In celebration of National Nursing Home Week on May 11-17, staff members from Good Samaritan Society of Park River went around town delivering popcorn to the area business to treat them to something special during this time with a note saying "In honor of National Nursing Home Week we wanted to 'pop' in and thank you for supporting our local Good Samaritan Society!"

Not to mention spe- cial food and treats through- Photo: Submitted out the week. the summer I am going to give coloring books," she Said. Around Easter time, she gave out bunnies. "We always say feel better soon," Mandi said. While most days, she is practicing to be- come a superhero by eating her fruits and vegetables, doing her chores, and runnirig so fast she can almost fly, if you ask Evangeline on an on-call weekend what she wants to be when she grows ups, she looks at her mom with a grin and knows her answer: "A doctor." Graflon .Duplicate Bridge Club joins" nationwide effort to,raise money for alzheimer's research GRAFTON, N.D. Members of the Grafton Du- plicate Bridge Club, led by team captain Michael Leighton, will play bridge for an entire day to raise money for The Longest Day - an annual fundrais- ing event for Alzheimer's research held by the Amer- ican Contract Bridge League and the Alzheimer's As- sociation. Leighton has set a team goal to raise $1,600 by playing bridge in Grafion for 16 hours on the longest day of the year - June 21. With an average age of 69, ACBL's members - most of whom play regularly at local bridge clubs - are significantly affected by Alzheimer's disease. By raising funds as part of The Longest Day program, bridge players are able to honor friends and loved ones who have been stricken with the disease while also keeping their own mental Skills Sharp, accord- the summer solstice, Supp0rts the Alzheimer's As- ing to the ACBL and the Alzheimer's Association. "Studies have shown strong links between games, such as bridge, and successful aging," said Robert Hartman, CEO of the ACBL. "The game alone challenges and stimulates mental acuity, but there's also a strong social aspect that can aid with successful aging. With support from our members like the Graflon Duplicate Bridge Club, we can continue rais- ing awareness and funds for the disease and hope- fully introduce bridge to a new audience that can ben- efit from the mental stimulation." This is the second consecutive year that ACBL has coordinated with bridge clubs across the Unit/ ed States and Canada to raise funds for The Longest Day. The sunrise-to-sunset event, which is held on sociation by providing much-needed resources for the care, support and research efforts it leads. Last year, 160 bridge clubs across the U.S. raised more than half a million dollars for the cause. In 2014, ACBL is setting its sights on raising $750,000, and it plans to increase that amount incrementally each year as more bridge clubs participate in the effort. "The Alzheimer's Association would not be able to operate successfully without the efforts of groups such as ACBL," said Donna McCullough, vice president of mass market development for the Alzheimer's Association. "The ACBL and bridge players in general are especially important to our as- sociation because of the game's potential benefits for preserving mental sharpness, and we' re happy to part- ner with them again this year." To raise money, the ACBL is encouraging its members to compete in bridge games from sunrise to sunset, which is approximately 16 hours on the summer solstice - the longest day of the year. The format of the event is determined by local club man- agers. "We've encouraged our members to be creative and get out in their communities to raise money from bridge players and anyone else interested in joining the fight to end Alzheimer's," said Robert Hartman, CEO of the ACBL. "Many clubs are offering beginner bridge lessons; a great way to involve the commu- nity while teaching a fun game that could impact the learner's quality of life in the future."
