July 13, 2010 The Press Page 7 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A bit of Arian contrariness could be keeping you from getting all the facts. Turn it off, and tune in to what you need to hear. It could make all the difference this week. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Get- ting an answer to a vital question involving financial matters might take longer than you'd expected.

Drivers and tractors come as far away as Minneapolis and Bismarck. Prizes are given for the oldest and youngest drivers, oldest tractor, and most miles traveled to Lankin with the tractor. Hayracks are available for anyone, young and old, to ride on free of charge. The twenty-mile round trip to Pisek and back is filled with sights and sounds of music and people visiting. Registration starts at 8 a.m., and the drivers will meet at 9:30 a.m. They will leave Lankin and stop at the Dave and Guy Praska farm for a pit stop halfway. They will arrive at the Top Hat in Pisek at 12:00 for a free-will offering noon meal. The tractors are scheduled to leave Pisek at 1:15 and arrive back in Lankin around 3:30 p.m. after another pit stop at the Praska Farm. Music will be playing before and after the ride on Main Street in Lankin. There will be drawings for door prizes at 4:30, and an evening meal will be served at 5:00 at the Lankin Fire Hall for all drivers, riders and the public. Friday, July 16, there will be a.potluck supper at the Lankin Fire Hall at 7 p.m., followed by a parade of the tractors already brought into Lankin. Camping is also available in Lankin. Francis Praska of Lankin started this event four years ago. The idea was to get antique tractors out of the sheds, tree shelterbelts, wherever.and letting lots of people enjoy the past by driving and viewing them. Praska inherited a 1936 B John Deere from his Dad that he also drives in the parade. In 2007, there were 44 tractors, in 2008, there were 65 tractors, and in 2009, there were 88 tractors. Anyone interested please call Francis Praska at 701-593-6155 or 701-331-1005 to pre-register and for more information. LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD 1 Higher Education in North Dakota is totally out of control. In a State of 630,000 people, it is like an 800 pound gorilla - it does exactly what it wants to do. The legislators are too intent on guarding 'their institution' or too mesmerized by the system to be rational (69% increase last session). And taxpayers (the owners) just seem to let the administrative inmates run the asylum. Our goal should be to educate residents from North Dakota with no more out of state or out of country students than we send out of North Dakota. This would be a lot tess than the 40+% we now have coming in from outside the state. And these out of state students are subsidized by over $6,000.00 per student per year from the taxpayers of'North Dakota. First, we forced out the only, qualified Chancellor in memory~ just because he was trying to do his job. But not to worry, we gave him $250,000.00 from the taxpayer to leave quietly. Second, we let the Presidenl of one major University run-a- muck because he was "indispensable". The Board of Higher Education looked like lemmings and the Chancellor was being real tough from a closet with the door closed. $1,500,000.00 at NDSU and $500,000.00 at UND was wasted and no one could follow board policies. Remember the asylum above? Third, the board and Chancellor then hired attorney for $225.00per hour to fred out what happened. What qualification does an attorney have that the Chancellor or the board wouldn't have? But spending a few thousand gives perceived legitimacy. It's only taxpayer money. Fourth, the most egregious, we gave "feel-good raises" to everyone at the top for no reason and with no evaluations. Apparently the Chancellor was so bedraggled and overwhelmed that there wasn't time to evaluate ten people. The Chancellor also got a raise of 2.75% (total nearly $214,000.00). Points : * We have too many.colleges. Four would do just f'me. You pick them. * We have duplicated curriculum throughout the system. A few more miles of travel won't hurt any studeiat. * Focus on academics and research not sports and sport stadiums. * Eliminate the Board of Higher Education and find a qualified Chancellor with eleven Vice Chancellors. We need some management - NOW. Leon L. Mallberg, Dickinson, N.D.

LATE (VERY LATE) (Continued from Page 1) At mid-month the local squad whupped up on Grafion 5-1. About twenty carloads of fans from Park River witnessed the victory. Grafton got revenge, however, signing five Park River players for their two-week tour of the Canadian Northwest, causing the PR team to disband for the remainder of the season. An amateur motion picture show for the juveniles of the neighborhood was given at the Finneseth home on the 21st. [Park River wasn't to have a movie theater until two years later. Grafton's Bijou theater opened up in the summer of 1907] Mr. and Mrs. William McEachron were driving their buggy home when it collided with an auto driven by Frank Lord. Speaking of autos: Bankers Farup and Lord visited the cement mines near Morden, Manitoba, making the trip in Farup's Premier auto. And if anyone was looking to buy an auto, Sam Holland had an Oldsmobile runabout for sale. In the middle of the month tragedy struck the Nick Gergen family. Gergen, an experienced well-digger had been digging a well on CD Lord's farm. On Thursday he noticed gas in the well, so the crew took the rest of the day off. When they returned on Friday they still noticed some gas, but Gergen went down anyway to inspect. He was near the bottom when he gave a quick signal to be hoisted out. As the men pulled him up, they noticed a sudden lightening of the load. Looking down, they noticed Gergen lying motionless at the bottom of the well about forty feet below. The rescuers couldn't retrieve his body until late that afternoon. Possible suicide at the Walsh County Law Center According to a statement by the Walsh County Sheriff's Office, Fred Martin Houle, 45, of Crtaffon, was found unresponsive in his cell Thursday, July 8 around 1 a.m. Houle was found with a bed sheet wrapped around his neck and hanging from an intercom box in his cell. Valley Ambulance and Walsh County Paramedic were dispatched to the scene and attempted to revive Houle with no success. The North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigation is conducting an investigation. No foul play is suspected at this time. Houle was initially arrested for a Walsh County District Court warrant after coming in' contact with Law Enforcement on another call earlier in the evening. The body was transported to. the Medical Examiner's Office in Bismarck for examination. Don't miss wcpress@polarcomm.com P.O. Box 49 Park River, ND 58270 201(} King Features Synd.. Inc.
