Section A - Oakes Times, Thursday, March 10, 2016 Hello, I am writing this from a motel computer in Charleston, S.C. So if I get mad and you hear a crash, it is the hotel computer going through the nearby door. I don't have a lot of computer skills when I am working with a strange keyboard. To tell the truth, I don't have a lot of skills at anything, other than making a pretty good omelette. As I mentioned last week, I was taking my first wife on a vacation. To a place 20 degrees colder than southwest North Da- kota. I posted pictures of Shir- ley on Facebook. We went on a harbor tour. She was dressed in a down filled Carhart jacket and had her winter scarf wrapped around her neck. If she could have, she would have worn her wool lined mittens and her face mask. But you don't pack those for a vacation to the south in the w nter. My mistake. And actu- ally, it was quite comfortable, if you stayed indoors. The ad for the Hotel said "Ocean view rooms"! Wonder- ful. Even if it is a little chilly, it Dave Frojen, Oakes, ND $50 Courtney Ford, Grand Forks, ND $50 Dennis Brandriet, Oakes, ND $50 Vinnie Skroch, Wyndmere, ND $100 Ilene Frauenberg, LaMoure, ND $100 Pamela Henningsen, Monango, ND $50 Joe Meehl, Crete, ND $50 LIBRARY Cometh the Hour The sixth of the Clifton Chronicles. One hundred years, one family, one extraordinary family. Rustlers Moon bv Jodi Thomas Angela Harold wants to stop rumming. Can she stop in Ran- som Canyon or wi! it chiahge her by Dean Meyer is nice to see the ocean. And maybe there is an ocean view, if you are higher up, and on the ocean side of the hotel. Our side looks down on the beautiful ho- tel pool! The ad didn't mention the pool was outside and closed because of the thin film of ice on the water. It wouldn't have been thick enough to play hockey, but it would have been good for a "polar plunge". The food has been wonder- ful. And you know I like food. I mean, rve had oysters on the half shell, something my travel mates find completely disgust- ing. I try to explain that they are good, that even the oys- ters enjoy it, but to no avail. I've had salmon and flounder and shrimp and lamb and shepard pie. I've had key lime pie and Carolina Hurricanes and Sam Adams beer. I've had crab legs and crab souffle and shrimp and grits. I've had fried chicken on waffles and fiat iron steak on macaroni. My brother-in-law has had hamburger and fries, cheese- burger and curly fries, mac and "Goodbye February and hello March, a good month for bring- ing smiles and happiness to family and friends." Quote from Dave's Words of Wisdom. The N.D. Breakfast Group started out February 29, 2016 by singing Happy Birthday to Ruby (Benson) Terry on her 21st birthday (really her 84th). We had a fantastic turn out at breakfast today at the East Val- ley Cafe~6102 East Main Ave. ~ Mesa. The following attend- ed: David and Dawn Holter, Roger and Eileen Feiken and her cousin Bea (Hildebrand) Christensen from Fargo, Jack cheese, and beer, lots of beer. ~We have toured Civil War and Revolutionary War sites. We have walked miles in state parks where the first settlers in South Carolina carved out a meek and meager living. This morning we are headed for the first museum built in the United States. I have seen Fort Sumpt- er and Fort Johnson. I have toasted the Union in Savannah and toasted the signers of the Declaration of Independence on Church Street. I have walked down market square and mar- veled at the cobblestone streets and the houses that predate a white guy being in the Dakotas. But I am looking forward to seeing the wide open prairies of Dakota, where you don't have to climb up on a hotel to see more than a quarter mile. Right now, I am going to load my mates in our rented car and RN life? In regular and large print. The Missino place bv Soohie Littlefield The setting for this book is the North Dakota oil fields. Two very different women form an uneasy alliance to find their missing sons in this suspenseful novel. They had been working in the oil fields. see if we can find that ocean everyone talks about. I know it has to be here somewhere. And I could run barefoot on the beach. If my toes aren't cold.

While inviting parents in to meet with teachers has been a time- old tradition, conferences for students and their parents in grades 7 - 12 will look a little different this spring at Oakes Junior/Senior High School. Oakes secondary teachers are anxious to have student-led conferences this spring in order to give students an opportu- nity to celebrate and share their accomplishments in the class- room with their parents and to set goals for continued growth with parent and teacher input. OAKES TIMES t CIRCLE R FARMLAND/AMPRIDE SCOOPS LIQUOR Cues from parent surveys after fall conferences indicated a desire for student-led confer- ences. Positive feedback from our elementary colleagues already facilitating student-led conferences was also a factor in the decision to change things up for this year's OHS spring conferences. While elementary student-led conferences in our district have been set up by appointment, conferences for grades 7-12 will still be an open invitation atmosphere with par- ents and students coming in to see teachers during the hours of 4:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. at their convenience. Please report to the new centralized office to pick up your student's sched- ules prior to proceeding to the south gym to find the teachers. In addition to having students lead the discussion during con- ferences, students in grades 7-12 and their parents will have an opportunity to win door priz- es at the event. Students have a shot at winning Oakes Bucks while parents could win one of two prizes: a 2016-2017 Family Activity Pass or a Kindle Fire. In addition, parents attend- ing will have an opportunity to tour our new centralized office area and expanded library on March 31, between conference meetings. We look forward to seeing a large turnout at con- ferences and our new building project open house on March 31! Please call the school with any questions you may have concerning spring conferences.

The Tornadoes would play a tough three quarters versus a good Loboe team but were out- scored in the final frame 26-13 los- ing 66-50. It was a season of ups and downs for the squad with the loss of nine seniors from last year's team; it took awhile for Oakes to come together. When playing their best ball, the team was giv- ing close .games to any foe that would step into the gym with them. All this would culminate into an 8 win and 13 loss season for the boys and some outstanding ef- forts against heavy hitters such as, Edgeley-Kulm, Linton, Carrington, and Milnor-North Sargent.
