The pro- gram is called SkillbuildND. Job Service has a $2.1 inillion dollar grant to help train veterans and Native American people in our state. It's a pro- gram that caters to the shortage of workers in western North Dakota. Training for jobs such as truck driving, welding, GIS technicians, au- tomotive and diesel master technicians, carpentry, building construction, plumbing, electrical technology, heating and air conditioning and petro- leum production technology just to name a few. This grant is a onethaae thing, use it or lose it! The state will pay for EVERYTHING, associated with these classes. This program is basically a "free ride" for anyone that qualifies. The state is looking for 220 students and as of right now they have I 0. Come on veterans and Native Americans; let's show the state that we can do this! Contact your local Job Service Office for immediate response to a pro- gram that is "'to good to be true" / Editor's Note." Stenvold, Jkom Park Rivet; NID., is president of North Dakota Yietnam Veterans of America. Elf on the Shelf offers a magical world of family fun By John Rosinski ROLLA, N.D. -- Pure chaos, or more than usual, has fallen upon my quiet home this month. My twins are 5 years old, and are joined by their 2-year-old brother. Together, the three of them are the perfect age for anything that requires an imagination, including Santa Claus. With the spirit of Christmas in mind, my wife decided to start a tradition this year that I would highly recommend to anyone with children. The Elf on the Shelf book was introduced to our home last week, and it's been a crazy scene ever since. For those wondering, Elf on the Shelf is a book annovaacing how Santa Claus deploys an elf to keep en eye on things in a particular home. Each night, the elf travels to the North Pole to update Santa if kids have been naughty or nice. Jessica read the story to our lit- tle ones, and they have bought into every word of it. The elf has been named Fred. He sits on our piano, overlooking the living room and kitchen, and he can't be touched. It's what Fred does at night that really has our kids bubbling with excitement each morning. On the first night, all three kids told Fred goodnight and thought nothing of it. When they got up the next mona- ing, they noticed Fred wasn't on the piano. They looked around a bit, and discovered Fred on the kitchen table. Somehow, he got into our flour, spread a bunch of it the -- 1 A Christmas Tradition 7/:;,;': : :. ........... ! around, and made a snow angle out of it. The kids absolutely couldn't believe it. Jessica said only morns and dads could touch him, so she cahnly put him back on his perch on the piano. The next morning, the kids couldn't wait to see what hap- pened. This time, Fred had gath- ered several of their stuffed ani- mals and had them all sitting nicely in a row. There was Fred, with a book open, reading them a story. ,leffry wasparticularly alarmed be- cause Fred had taken his pillow pet right out from under him while he was sleeping. The next night, he was clutching it with both hands, asking Jessica to keep an eye on it. Since then, Fred has sabotaged our Nintendo Wii remotes to play some games, written a message on the mirror from Santa himself; and seamlessly brought our family a little closer. He's also hopefully found a way to cement himself in the hearts of my children for years to comc. Editor's" Note: Roshlski is a re- porterJbr tke Tttrtle Mountain Star ht Rolla.
