By Allison Olimb of The Press PARK RIVER, N.D. -- Walsh County Three Rivers Soil Conser- vation District recently wrapped up another busy planting season. This spring after an office shake- up, 319 Coordinator Sarah Johnston became the new district manager. Johnston was offered the district manager role by the supervisory board following the resignation of former manager Joleen Swartz. She took over in mid May, and Katrina Haugen of Voss was hired on to serve as office assistant, handling ac- counting, outreach and education. Throughout the season, Johnston balanced the duties of her previous job and her current one. "It was fine. I just worked a lot of 60 plus hour weeks," she said. "I had to go with the biggest fire to put out always. 319 really didn't require a whole lot of me during that time."
