IParks and Rec Report Todd Kjelland Park River Park District Manager This time of year is full of change. The leaves fall, water gets shut off, flowers are dug up and all is prepared for a hibernation of outdoor summer and fall activities. As the cooler nights have slowed the grass growth, it is a time to~ concentrate on the next step for the Park River Park District (PRPD) I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to those that have moved into the Park River area in the last 25 years. Others may remember me as the kid with the yellow dirt bike blazing ditch trails west of town or warming the skins (drums) at PRHS events. When you find yourself knee deep in life's challenges, it is time to think about returning home for a renewed start. That is what happened. I returned to the "Town with a Heart" and it feels wonderful. I graduated from PRHS in 1985 then moved two weeks after graduation ,to Seattle. I attended one year of professional entertainment training at Green River Community Collage. Life's necessities landed me in the hotel industry for the better part of the last 25 years. The desire to stay close to my musical heart, I started my first company TMK Entertainment, a mobile DJ company in 1989. Between the two careers and several other jobs I learned customer service, computer skills, business management and product marketing. I hope to take those skills and take PRPD to a new level. It will not be an easy task, but I am willing to take on the challenge. I begin here with this Parks and Rec Report. I would like to thank everyone that volunteered their time to help with the "Walsh County Wildcats" Pop Warner'Football program. I also wish to thank the parents that supported the program by attending the games and that brought the team to practices. The next couple of weeks I will find myself creating communication avenues, setting up an office and working on finding grants, fundraisers and assessing our needs for 2011. I welcome any and all ideas for fundraising, community classes, and activities. I look forward to creating with you, the commurAity, and a way to "Step Up" and support Park River Parks and Recreation.

He added that there were some changes made in the process with Tate Publishing and his original artwork did not make it into the story, but after a lot of back and forth the story was ready for readers. "Surprisingly, there were very few changes made to the book," Cox said. "All in all, we're excited about the way it turned out." The book will be available for purchase at Christian bookstores in Devils Lake and Jamestown, online, and by contacting Cox. Cox said that the book comes with opportunities to sell merchandise such as coloring books and t-shirts with the characters, but what he is most excited about is the byline that will be on bookshelves for years to come. He smiles as he says that this will be something down the road that his grandkids will look at and say, "Hey, this is something grandpa did." And that is where the real adventure lies.
