    Bill Stuver|Updated Oct 18, 2017

    A new program for future students at Carter County's Hammond and Hawks Home rural schools began recently, which prepares pre-school aged youth for the rigors of a structured educational system. The School Readiness Program, which was set up by Heather Brownfield, Krista Gnerer, and Wynn Tauck, came about as a result of increased attendance.

    Sabre Moore|Updated Oct 18, 2017

    Last Wednesday, October 11, was National Fossil Day, and the Carter County Museum celebrated by inviting classes from Carter County High School.

This collaboration helps highlight the comprehensive nature of the collections here – not only do we have dinosaurs, but we also have an...

  • Hat Tips

    Dean Meyer|Updated Oct 18, 2017

    Hello, I’m tired of warnings. I mean I am really tired of warnings. The seat belt warning comes on every time I get in the pickup. I do fasten my seat belt. I don’t need a warning. The stove warns me when the burner is hot. I learned as a child not to touch hot stuff. I’ve scars to prove it. All of my pills warn me not to operate heavy equipment after I take the pills. I don’t have any heavy equipment. My mother warned me as a child to carry the scissors pointed down, and don’t run. I don’t carry scissors and I don’t run to t...

  • Dogs down Comets

    Updated Oct 18, 2017

    CCHS won their first football game of the season last Saturday in Alexander, ND. It was the Comets homecoming game, CCHS spoiled it. CCHS scored early and often. Early in the second quarter they secured a running clock. At that time, the Bulldogs—in good sportsmanship—took their foot off of the accelerator. Several players were put in positions they had seldom, or never, played before. Blue took a lead over sixty points into halftime. Throughout most of the second half, backup quarterback Seth Kennedy took snaps under cen...

  • Letter to the editor

    Curtis D. Carter|Updated Oct 18, 2017

    Dear Editor: I am writing in response to Del Dague’s NFL letter of September 29th. Del Dague you were spot on about the NFL. 23 years ago I was offered a flying job here in the state of Washington; a job that I could not refuse. So, that’s when I sold my business at Ekalaka, then moved to the state of Washington where, after a while I became a Seattle Seahawk fan. Especially when once in a while they would win. I had purchased a 12th man flag and every time they played I would proudly fly it on our house. A few of us even wen...

  • Most hunters find ample opportunities to harvest antelope

    Updated Oct 18, 2017

    Most of the hunters who came through Region 7 check stations Sunday after the opening of general antelope season found ample opportunities to harvest animals. Upland game bird hunters had a little more difficulty finding quarry, but that was somewhat expected with impacts from the ongoing drought. Most hunters visiting check stations at Custer, Broadus and Mosby were after antelope, but a few were still chasing deer or elk before archery season wrapped up or hoping to bag some birds. Broadus check station Broadus did not see...

  • Bright Ideas

    Lois Lambert|Updated Oct 18, 2017

    This year we were lucky to harvest plenty of tomatoes to eat, freeze, and share. We had enough apples to can applesauce and make a pie and crumble. Brice still picks the occasional apple off the tree. A small pepper crop turns colors in our house; cayenne peppers ripen in the shop. Now the task of dismantling begins. Three short rows of corn stalks were pulled out; the birds took the last kernels from the garden. Twelve tomato plants were pulled off cages and metal fence posts used to hold them up. When they were taken down t...

  • Seasonal needle drop

    Elin Kittelmann, County Extension Agent|Updated Oct 18, 2017

    Every fall, people look forward to the fall colors as deciduous tree leaves change colors and drop in preparation of winter. We expect the leaves of deciduous trees to change colors. What many people are unaware of, though, is that most conifers also drop their needles at this time. Every fall, conifers shed some of their needles. This is a natural process known as Seasonal Needle Drop. The amount of needle-loss is dependent on species and environmental conditions. The occurrence of seasonal needle drop is often mistaken for...
