Barnes County and surrounding area. No one is

Next week there
will be lots going
on in this area.
Lisbon is hosting
its annual Happy
Days, while Valley
City has Rally in
the Valley.
Both celebrations
have a ton of events
associated with
them, but Id like
to make sure that a
key event isnt over-
looked during the
two events.
Te 20th Annual
Head Start Poker Run takes place on Sat-
urday, June 14.
Tis event raises money for the Head
Start program in Valley City and has
done so for two decades.
Its a fun event for everyone who gets
involved. Te two people who created
the run, Mike Boomer Boom and Brian
Mindt, have made sure to reinforce the
idea that the ride isnt just for motorcycle
riders, but for anyone who wants to go
for a drive -- in any type of vehicle -- and
have some fun.
Tis years ride
goes from Iron
Stallion in Valley
City, to Hannaford,
McHenry, Kensal,
Sanborn and then
Boomers Corner
Keg in Valley City.
Following the
ride is a dinner and
silent auction.
Despite wanting
to own a motorcy-
cle for years, I nev-
er have. However, if
at all possible, I will
be joining the group this year to partake
with my Jeep.
It seems like fun, theres nothing
wrong with just taking a drive and enjoy-
ing the beauty of our area. Plus, it helps
the Head Start program get supplies and
equipment the children may go without
otherwise.
While enjoying the celebrations in our
area next week, how about helping some
tots out and going for a ride?

IF YOU TELL THE TRUTH, YOU DONT HAVE TO REMEMBER ANYTHING. MARK TWAIN
OPINION: LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
No real answers given
for election questions
Letter from Lloyd A. Nelson
Valley City, ND
Quite a Paid Political Ad for Jef Ed-
wards by Mary Lee Nielson.
Yes, I did ask questions of the three Com-
missioners who are supporting Jef Edwards
for Mayor at a recent Commission meeting.
However, not much response came forth
from the three Commissioners, except to
say they didnt have to answer political elec-
tion questions at a commission meeting. I
believe the questions werent answered at
the time, because they needed time to think
about the answers, and get help from
their Special Interest Group to answer the
questions. It took a few days, but Mary Lee
Nielson came up with some comments.
Lets take a look at what was in the Times
Record advertisement.
Jef Edwards has a solid background in
Human Resources.....
Where? When? What did he work at/as?
.....and construction management.
Who does he work for? Paul Diegel. Will
this create a confict of interest? When-
ever Mr. Diegel wants a contract with the
city how will Mr. Edwards vote - for/against
or abstain?
I believe he will work with everyone
without using profanity or making sexist or
racist remarks.
Does that mean he uses profanity, sexual
and racist remarks now, but wont if hes
elected?
Is Mary Lee referring to Dave Johnsons
profanity who answered my questions by
saying, Bite me!?
Sexist remarks! Is she starting mud-
slinging and referring to Mayor Werk-
hoven? If not, then sexist remarks by
whom, when, where, how? Or is this just a
statement for people to wonder about and
create rumors?
Racist remarks - again, she must be refer-
ring to Dave Johnson because he is the only
one who used a website to smear three of
the seven candidates who were running for
ofce in 2006.
Of the seven candidates running for of-
fce that year, why were only three singled
out?
Had I been elected to the ofce of Mayor
in 2006, the frst thing I would have done
would have been to have the City Attorney
and States Attorney check into who created
the website, and why. However, if I had any-
thing to do with the website, I would have
done nothing.
When Mary Lee Nielsen became Mayor,
she did nothing to ascertain who was be-
hind the website. You can draw your own
conclusion from that.
A letter was also sent out to many of the
city residents by George Gaukler asking
them to NOT vote for the three of us.
Could the reason have been that Special
Interest people knew we three couldnt be
bought or manipulated?
Mary Lee Nielsen also stated,
I know he, (Jef Edwards), did a great
job co-chairing the Valley City Housing
Task Force.
When was he on the Housing Task Force?
How do people who have been in town
such a short time get picked for positions
on these committees? I have NEVER been
asked to be on a committee! But then, I am
not one to Go along with the group, and I
dont think they want anyone on a commit-
tee who looks into, checks things out and
asks questions.
As for the other two Commissioners
backing Jef Edwards - Is there something
in it for them that we dont know about?
Please give this election some very seri-
ous thought before voting. Not only for the
Mayoral position, but also for the Commis-
sioner positions.
Answers are needed for question
Letter from Lowell Bushing
Valley City, ND
In a city with 6,500 people to get about 60
people to attend the Meet the Candidates
program at the Eagles last week was prob-
ably as good as we can do here. Until they
are voted in and displease someone. Ten
we will have plenty voicing their opinion.
Te format at that program was not such
that Lloyd Nelson, if he had been in town,
would have been able to ask the city com-
missioners why they supported a particular
candidate over the other one I am afraid.
Only two of the three were on the panel,
and I am sure the other would not have
been available to respond. Lloyd was un-
able to get a response at the last commis-
sion meeting as not being appropriate for
the meeting.
I do believe it was a valid question that
the city voters should have an answer to.
Werkhoven doesnt have
a personal agenda
Letter from Leon Pytlik
Valley City, ND
Unlike some ads Ive seen, I will not make
a cheap shot insinuation at any city ofce
candidate. I prefer to stick to the facts. Since
Bob Werkhoven has been mayor (president
of the city commission) I have not had the
street closed in from of my business for
228 days, as in a previous food. No Porta-
Potties at nearly every corner. No orders to
close my business. No requests to evacuate
the city. No escorting citizens out of the
commission chamber by police.
What we have seen is Bob organizing well
in advance of the food of 2011. A man with
an engineering degree who thinks things
through and makes decisions in the best
interest of the citizens of Valley City. A man
who believes in transparency in govern-
ment. If you have watched the commission
meetings on CSI, you will not that anyone
in the audience who wishes to speak has
that opportunity on every motion.
Bob has no personal agenda, his agenda
is looking out for the good of the city and
the citizens of Valley City.
Please join me in voting for my friend,
and our mayor, Bob Werkhoven on June
10.
Election is very important
for Valley Citys future
Letter from Brian Mindt
Valley City, ND
Te upcoming election is the most im-
portant one in history for the hardworking,
tax paying residents of Valley City.
Two incumbent city commissioners run-
ning for election, plus another incumbent
commissioner, have teamed to support
Mayoral candidate Jef Edwards. Lets look
at some confict of interests involving can-
didates Jef Edwards and Matt Pedersen.
Mayoral candidate Edwards
is an employee of Paul Di-
egel, a contractor and devel-
oper, who bids on and wins
city contracts. Mr. Diegels
development projects are re-
cipients of Valley City incen-
tives. Jef Edwards is a real
estate broker who stands to
gain personally from infat-
ed housing costs due to un-
necessary food buyouts in
areas already protected by a
dike that has withstood two
major foods. Te treasurer
of Jef Edwards campaign is
Betty Pedersen, the mother
of Matt Pedersen, who is a
major principle in Summit
Properties, a major player
in the Valley Rental Market. Tese issues
alone would appear to legally and ethically
restrict Mr. Edwards from voting a great
deal of the time.
Word on the street is a Bridge City prin-
ciple is involved in Summit Properties.
Does Jef Edwards have ties to the Citys
engineering frm KLJ?
Te above mentioned parties had hoped
to get the cost share for the city down to 15
percent. Tey got 20 percent.
Commissioner Pedersen claims to be
such an astute business planner and vision-
ary due to being a CPA. Ten why didnt he
and his illustrious group begin by protect-
ing our Public Utilities, our Hospital and
those areas with no in-place food protec-
tion? Because of the increased cost share,
there may be areas of the city that will not
have the security of permanent food pro-
tection.
Commissioner Matt Pedersen, at the
candidates forum, exponded on this busi-
ness skills as a CPA for Microsof, and be-
ing able to bring opposing sides together.
Commissions Pedersen, Nielsen, along
with City Attorney Myhre, City Auditor
Richter and City Administrator Schelkoph,
initiated the buyout of 14 homes on 5th
Ave. S.W. prior to having state funding in
place for the project, including engineering
costs. Te in-place dike on the east side of
the river has withstood two major foods.
If the trio of Magnuson, Pedersen and
Edwards are on the city commission, along
with Commissioner Nielsen, it will be like
a freight train running over Commissioner
Luke.
As a matter of record, Commissioner
Pedersen, since his election, has been ab-
sent for 19 of the Commission meetings. Is
the city really his main interest?

Tis column looks back at early
area history as found in the
archives of the Enderlin
Historical Society and Museum.
Museum website:
www.enderlinmuseum.org
Tis weeks article
was found in the
June 23, 1921 issue of
Te Enderlin Inde-
pendent and tells us
about updates to a business which still
exists today.

IMPROVING TELEPHONE SER-
VICE
Moore Liberty to Put in Under-
ground Cable
Te Moore & Liberty Telephone
Company has just received a big
shipment of heavy cable, with which
they will begin next Monday laying
underground wires from the central
ofce along Tird avenue and up the
hill for the beneft of residents of Sunset
hill. We understand that this is only a
beginning and the manager predicts
that within the next three years every
overhead telephone wire in the city will
be removed.
Our farmer-owned telephone line is
certainly progressive and the success
with which it has supplied our city is
but one more evidence that Ransom
County farmers are good business men
and capable of succeeding in any big
undertaking they may attempt.
n nn
Sues Comments: Tis article serves
to remind us that Moore & Lib-
erty Telephone Company was once
a farmer-owned cooperative! It is
interesting that they were already lay-
ing underground cable back in 1921,
something which still continues today
with the new fber-optic cable. Again
we fnd the reference to Sunset Hill,
which was the area at the top of the
schoolhouse hill.
Tere was another interesting little
article in the same paper which I will
print below. It is something I had
never heard about before. It would be
interesting to fnd out if any people
from Enderlin attended this. It is
obvious WW I was still fresh in every-
ones mind and they felt the general
public needed to be better prepared.

A citizens training camp will be held

pense, including transportation, will be

SCHLECHT
DID YOU KNOW?
Improving telephone service back in the day
S
pring is in the
air so get outside
and get active.
One way is by riding a
bike, but before pull-
ing the bicycle out of
the garage fnd out
how to be safe when
riding. Bike riding
can be fun for all
ages, but accidents can happen. Bikes
should be used for transportation and
not play. Bicycle accident injuries can
occur that require emergency room
visits, hospitalizations, or may result
in death.
Te most common reason for death
in a bicycle accident is due to head in-
juries. A head injury can mean brain
injury. Tis is why it is important to
wear a helmet. Wearing a helmet does
not mean you should be reckless. A
helmet will provide some protection
to your face, head, and brain in case
you were to fall down or be in an ac-
cident.
Te government, realizing how im-
portant helmets are in bicycle safety
and protecting against head injuries,
has developed standards for bicycle
manufacturing companies. Your hel-
met should have a sticker that says it
meets standards set by the Consumer
Product Safety Commission (CPSC).
If your helmet doesnt have a CPSC
sticker, you should get one that does.
It is important that you wear a helmet
every time you are on your bike, no
matter how short the trip or destina-
tion and no matter your age. Helmets
are for all ages.
Your bike helmet should ft you
properly. You dont want it too small or
too big. Never wear a hat under your
bike helmet. Once you have the right
helmet, you need to wear it the right
way so it will protect you. It should be
worn level and cover your forehead.
Dont tip it back so your forehead is
showing. Te straps should always be
fastened. If the straps are fying, its
likely to fall of your head when you
need it most. Make sure the straps
are adjusted so theyre snug enough
that you cant pull or twist the helmet
around on your head.
Take care of your bike helmet and
dont throw it around. Tat could dam-
age the helmet and it wont protect you
as well when you really need it. If you
do fall down and put your helmet to
the test, be sure to get a new one. Tey
dont work as well afer a major crash.
Tere are other ways to take precau-
tions when riding a bike. It is safest
to ride a bike during the day because
people are able to see you better. Also,
it is recommended to wear bright
clothes and put refectors on your
bike because it helps other people on
the road see you. If they see you they
are less likely to hit you. Be careful of
loose clothing that could get caught in
the chain.
Wear appropriate shoes, sneak-
ers are a good choice. Avoid sandals,
cleats, and never go barefoot. Also
avoid wearing headphones because
the music can distract you from noises
around you, such as a car blowing its

I
ll be the frst to admit that following a long and cold winter and a
short spring counted in days or weeks and not months, we almost feel
like were trying to play catch up before we miss out on the summer-
time outdoors fun.
From fshing, boating and swimming, to camping, hiking and bird-
ing theres a variety of outdoors options. And the fact is, each has its own
unique enjoyment and safety considerations to take into account as well.
Just the mention of safety might prompt some readers to shrug their
shoulders with apathy, thinking not another sermon about wearing your
life jacket and exercising care while operating a jet ski.
While those are obvious reminders, this safety promotion is for anyone
spending time outdoors.
Sunburns, bug bites and a host of other hindrances can turn a planned afernoon of
fghting pike into several days of sufering if you dont consider the right precautions.
Whether its fshing, boating or just lounging at the beach, taking care of your skin
is important. While not an immediate threat such as drowning, long-term skin-care
neglect can cause implications such as skin cancer, which is every bit as serious as being
involved in a boat accident without a life jacket.
It should be common practice to protect your skin before spending any amount of
time outdoors. Begin as you exit your morning shower by applying a generous layer of
moisturizing lotion, which feels good and aids in skin well being. Also apply sunscreen
before you venture out. Tis allows the sunscreen to begin working immediately at flter-
ing out harmful ultraviolet rays.
Most people are familiar with the sunscreen SPF number. Tis indicates a level of pro-
tection the higher the number the more your skin is shielded against the suns harmful
UV rays. Special formulas, such as a water resistance, may add protection. Regardless of
the activity, experts advise reapplication every few hours to maintain protection.
Grassy and wooded areas also harbor ticks just waiting to randomly latch on to hikers
and campers. Some repellent formulas promote protection against ticks and other nui-
sance bugs, but just be sure, check yourself for ticks frequently anyway.
Whether riding a personal watercraf or just lounging around outdoors, sunglasses are
not just for looks. Te sun-dimming efect reduces eye strain and helps keep your vision

Election Time Once Again
I
t is election time in Valley City and you can already see the dirty politics rear its ugly head. I am talking about the email from
Commissioner Pederson to Mayor Werkhoven (see elsewhere in this publication). How sad is that? Why not just publicly stone
him? Most of you folks at city hall wear your religion on your sleeve for all to see, this way you say that there is biblical justi -
cation for your treatment of Mayor Werkhoven. You four make me sick!!!
Lets have a little history lesson about how far people at city hall will go to keep you, the citizens of Valley City, from voting in
a fair and honest election.
Do you remember when Robert Drake, Lloyd Nelson and LeRoy Neubauer ran for city commission? Well, here is what hap-
pened. Everything I say is true and I accept full responsibility for the following statements:
Valley City City Administrator David Johnson, with help of Mary Lee Nielson, Jon Wagar, Ken Evenson and Mayor Riley, and
several other people at city hall, conspired together to create the most hateful and hurtful racist web site that had ever been done in
North Dakota Politics. Although a so-called investigation found that no one but David Johnson was supposedly involved, I know
better. The web site portrayed Robert Drake as Hitler, Lloyd Nelson as a KKK member and LeRoy Neubauer as a slumlord. It was
so hateful that the news story that followed was picked up in 26 different states and over 200 newspapers across the United States.
City Administrator David Johnson lied about the citys involvement for over nine months. Finally, he confessed to the web site, and
was put on administrative leave for 30 days, and eventually quit and moved on. Just to let you know, he did the same thing at this
next job in Minnesota where he created a web site directed at a female county commissioner calling her a prostitute and showing her
in a digitally altered image surrounded by several naked men. He was then red and moved on again, and lost that job as well. I do
not know why. Valley City city hall sure trained him right. What a guy! Valley City should be so proud!
Well, the story does not stop there by any means. City hall has a long history of creative ways to stop you, the citizens of Val-
ley City, from voting in a fair election.
I also ran for city commissioner another time. This time a different tactic was used against me. It is called the spoiler! Whats
that, you ask? Well, a spoiler is a candidate that was put in the election by the opposing party to split the vote. This works very
well and rarely hurts the incumbent. You see, city hall knows that anyone that runs gets between 100 and 250 votes. These votes
would not go to the more popular candidate or the incumbent. They would go to the less popular or unknown candidate runing.
Why that is, I do not know, but that is what happens. So, if there is a close race, the other corrupt party wants to control the election
outcome. They put in a spoiler. In my case, the spoiler was Dick Lorenz! Dick got into the race three weeks before the election as a
write-in candidate. The person that got him to run, the person who paid for his campaign signs, the person who paid his ads in the
newspaper, the person who paid for everything for Dick Lorenzs campaign was Bobby Koepplin, Cass County Electric Manager,
also a board member of Valley Development Group! As a result of Bobby Koepplins and his boss actions, I lost the election by less
than 100 votes. Dick got nearly 300, I think. So, if you connect the dots here, you can see who is really running the show and keep-
ing you from voting in a fair election.
Well, it does not stop there. Remember the election when Arthur Friese ran for city commission? Well, during the public fo-
rum, Arthur sat between me and Mary Lee Nielson. I thought it was strange that almost everytime Arthur did not know an answer to
the question, he would ask Mary Lee Nielson. He commented to Mary Lee about he never should have done this. Mary Lee never
even looked at him or said one word. He knew nothing of the issues, he knew nothing about anything, yet he still got over 200 votes
and I lost by 46 or so. The end justi es the means - city halls new mission statement!
So, if you think that city hall is a trustworthy group of people, you are wrong. If you think that those at city hall have your best
interests at heart, you are wrong again.

Soap Box Derby drivers Eryn and Eden Crump stand next to the car of their sister as the
family got vehicles ready for action.
STORY BY ASHLEY DOMINO AND PHOTOS BY ROGER BLUHM
The need for speed
hits Central Avenue
Area youngsters take to the streets for
19th Annual Dakota Soap Box Derby
S
peed and family -- a traditional combi-
nation for some.
Valley City will continue its tradition
today through Sunday by hosting the 19th
Dakota Annual Soap Box Car derby.
Te two categories that will be held are
the superstock and stock racing. Stock rac-
ing depends on both age and size, as does
superstock. Stock ranges from ages 7 to 14,
and superstock is ages 9 to 18. Te winner of
the two categories will move on to nationals
in Akron, Ohio later this summer.
Te track in Valley City is unique to most
tracks throughout the United States. Te
location is directly on Central Avenue in
the middle of town. Most tracks have been
moved from roads in town to actual tracks
built for the derbies. Not only is the track in
the middle of town, but the races in Valley
City are the only ones held in the state of
North Dakota. Early this morning the track
will be put together using a few hundred
hay bales and some dedicated committee
members.
Soap box car racing is a family sport. Te
rules state that a parent must help the driver
build their car.
Its a good experience for kids to have
and its fun spending time with your fam-
ily too, Eryn Crump said. Crump will be
competing again this year against her sister
Eden Crump and two other siblings.
Te love of the sport has been instilled in
the two young girls from their family tra-
ditions, and they plan on racing as long as
they can, and also bringing their own fami-
lies to love the derbies as much as they do.
Afer 19 years of derbies, tradition is
bound to develop. Valley City has its own

tradition that some people
do not know much about.
Scott Miller is part of the
derby committee in Valley
City. He hears the ofcial
starter ask a few of the rac-
ers every year, Did you kiss
the rock? Some reply with
yes, others have no idea
what he is asking them.
A man who was part
of the All-American Race
came to Valley City to look
over the track, fell in love
with Valley City, and had
the track blessed to keep it
safe, Miller said.
Legend has it that there
is a special rock that was
blessed along with the track
to keep the racers safe at the
very top of Central Avenue.
Miller also commented
that a few people who have
kissed the rock have had a
wave of luck during their
races.
Along with Soap Box Der-
by there is also a rally rac-
ing contest going on from
Saturday afer the derby to
Sunday afernoon. Just like
the derby, this will also be a
double-elimination contest.
Inspections for the derby
were held earlier this week
with a picnic on Tursday
for the racing families.Trial
runs will go from 9:30-10:30
a.m. today with racing start-
ing afer the ofcial opening
ceremonies. Soap Box Der-
by races end on Saturday.
Whether your family is
racing or not, soap box rac-
ing is a family friendly event,
and people are encouraged
to come watch and cheer on
their favorite drivers.

A
t various times over the last few years the news
has been full of stories about immigration and
citizenship. Government ofcials at diferent
levels of government have spoken about what rules and
regulations would be in the best interest of the country
and the people involved.
Tere is likely to be quite a few more such stories and
discussions in the days ahead.
In the letter of Ephesians, the Apostle Paul uses the
language of citizenship to describe the status of those
who believe in Christ.
He says in the second chapter, So then you are no longer strang-
ers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and mem-
bers of the household of God, built on the foundation of the apostles
and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone, in whom the
whole structure, being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the
Lord (Eph. 2:19-21).
Tere are certain privileges given to those who are citizens of a na-
tion.
Being included means that you are a welcomed part of the group.
As Paul speaks he mentions strangers and aliens. Tese words indicate
people who have come from a foreign nation and intended to stay and
then leave at some point. Tey are not permanently connected to the
people but are separate.
But Paul says that the believers in Ephesus are no longer strangers
and aliens but are citizens. Tey had been made a part of the Kingdom
of God.
As a youngster my family moved fairly regularly. I never felt all that
settled until I was in junior high.
When we moved to that area I felt like a stranger. I didnt know any-
ones name or even how to get from place to place. I wanted to ft in
and be a part of all that was going on. As time went on and I was in
that place I began to settle in and felt more and more like I was a part
of everything.
As Christians, we trust in Jesus Christ who is the cornerstone and
foundation of the Kingdom of God. When we receive faith as a free gif
from God the reality is that He has delivered us from the domain of
darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son (Colos-
sians 1:13).
But we are not removed from this world at that moment we remain
here in this world. So we might say that we are citizens of another king-
dom waiting to go home.
On the Statue of Liberty is the poem Te New Colossus by Emma
Lazarus. It has those famous words, Give me your tired, your poor,
your huddled masses yearning to breathe free. Many rejoiced when
they saw the statue for it meant freedom or safety. Our King, Jesus, is
reaching out to all mankind. He has done this at the Cross. Calling all
to repent and welcoming them into His kingdom. Calling them to free-
dom and safety; to a kingdom where they will have an eternity to enjoy
their citizenship.
Te time will come when the citizens of heaven will be able go home,
for the frst time, to a place that has been prepared for them (John 14:1-
6).
Te yearning to breathe free will be replaced with deep breaths tak-
ing in the joy and wonder of Gods mercy and riches in Christ.

Letter of Intimidation & Conspiracy at City Hall
T
he people of Valley City need to know that most of the elected of cials on Valley Citys Commission are conspiring against them and their right to vote in
a fair election!
The email at right from Matt Pederson to the Mayor of Valley City clearly shows that Commissioner Matt Pederson, Commissioner Mary Lee Nielson
and Commissioner Dewey Magnuson, along with City Administrator David Schelkroph, are at this moment conspiring to bring down the Mayor of Valley City
through intimidation and just plain old bullying and terrorizing. When is the web site coming out Matt???
Read this email carefully and you will see what they are trying to do. Pederson will say, I was just trying to be upfront with what was going on and who
I was going to support. Well, lets see if that is the case. Ask yourself this question: What would I do in this situation? Well, here is what I would say to mayor
Werkhoven in my email: Bob, I just want to be upfront with you about the upcoming election. I will be supporting the other guy. Thats all you have to put.
That would have been an honest and truthful statement. Pedersons statement was
designed to show Mayor Werkhoven that no only was he (Pederson) not support-
ing him, two other commissioners Magnuson and Nielson were also not supporting
him as well. Then Commissioner Pederson goes on in the email - not only are we
not supporting you, Mr. Mayor, here is how we are going to bring you down! I am
going to have front-page ads that will be coming out against you and the other com-
missioners are going to do the same. ASK yourself this question: Which way would
you have told Mayor Werkhoven that you were going to support someone else in
the upcoming election?
This letter was intended to intimidate and terrorize Mayor Werkhoven, plain
and simple - just like the web site discussed elsewhere in this publication this week.
It is just packaged a little different!
Why would these commissioners all come out against Mayor Werkhoven?
Well, I will tell you why. One reason is because of all the problems with the ap-
praisals from the 2012-13 buy-out program that Matt, Mary Lee and Magnuson
all worked on. Many of these appraisals are wrong and Mayor Werkhoven wanted
more time and more investigation into these appraisals. Finally, Mayor Werkhoven
refused to sign any more purchase agreements until he got the information he had
been asking for, and as a result of that information, Mayor Werkhoven, along with
the Barnes County Tax Assessor, led a complaint with the North Dakota Real Es-
tate Appraisal and Ethics Board. These appraisals are a rip-off to the taxpayers of
Valley City. Ask yourself this: How can an apartment building that was purchased
for around $300,000 two years before the buy-out be worth over half a million in
just two years?? There are also other folks looking into these appraisals, so the
show is not over yet!
You might be asking where is Commissioner Luke in all this? It is our opin-
ion that she is so far out of the loop of deal-making and go-along politics that she
wasnt even asked where she stood on whether to support Mayor Werkhoven. You
see, Luke is lucky she is not running for commissioner now, otherwise she would be
a target as well. Commissioner Luke is a threat to the other commissioners because she is not your typical commissioner: She works for we the people - not
the powers that be. Thats why she is an outsider at city hall. If you see her, ask her if she gets cooperation from the staff at city hall. Ask her if the other com-
missioners treat her with respect? If you do not go along, out the door you go!
Getting back to Commissioner Pedersons email to Mayor Werkhoven, you have to decide for yourself what to make of that email! To me, having person-
ally dealt with Matt Pederson on protesting the paving district in our neighborhood here in Valley City, Commissioner Pederson threw the whole paving district
under the bus because he got what he wanted: the double toothpicks to the rest of us! Commissioner Pederson wrote that letter to intimidate and terrorize the
Mayor. Everyone in Valley City has the right to have an opportunity to vote in an honest, respectful election concerning the challenges and issues that are fac-
ing Valley City! That is not what these three commissioners and Schelkoph are doing; they should be ashamed! Personally, I am, as well as many others who
have read this email, once again embarrassed because of the leadership we have here in Valley City! It is so sad that a community as beautiful on the outside
can be so dirty and hateful on the inside!

A
ccording to media
reports, President
Barack Obama will
be visiting North Dakota
soon.
According to the Wash-
ington Post, President
Obama plans on visiting an
Indian reservation in the
state sometime this month.
Teres no word yet on
which reservation Obama
will visit -- or even ofcial
confrmation that the visit
will actually take place --
though his senior policy
adviser for Native Ameri-
can afairs, Jodi Gillette, is
a member of the Standing
Rock Sioux Tribe in North
Dakota, where her brother is
the chairman. So that might
be a good bet, though most
of the Standing Rock reser-
vation is in South Dakota.
I have a few thoughts on
the impending visit:
First, President Obama
should visit the Fort Berthold
Reservation, for a number of
reasons.
Not only would visiting
Fort Berthold give President
Obama the opportunity to
discuss Native American
issues, but he could also
observe frst hand the eco-
nomic spark oil develop-
ment has created there. Te
Fort Berthold Reservation
produces about 30 percent
of North Dakotas oil pro-
duction. Teyre also pro-
fracking at Fort Berthold,
where tribal leaders have
questioned the federal gov-
ernment authority to regu-
late that drilling technique
on their land.
On a less happy note, the
reservation also has a much
higher faring rate than the
rest of the state. About 40
percent of the natural gas
produced on the reserva-
tion is fared, compared to
less than 30 percent in the
rest of the state. A lot of that
has to do with the federal
bureaucracy
surrounding
the develop-
ment of gas
capture in-
frastructure.
It would be
good for
P r e s i d e n t
Obama to
learn more
about that problem, and
how the federal government
simply doesnt do as good a
job as the State of North Da-
kota does when it comes to
keeping faring down.
Something tells me,
though, that North Dakotas
oil-driven economic success
story is a narrative the Presi-
dent will probably want to
avoid.
Second, how will North
Dakota Democrats react?
President Obama is not a
popular leader in North Da-
kota. He got just 38 percent
of the vote, compared to
Mitt Romneys 58 percent,
in 2012. Te only Democrat
who won on the statewide
ballot here was Senator Hei-
di Heitkamp, and she barely
won by a margin of less than
1 percent of the vote which
she won by campaigning
pretty vigorously against
President Obama.
With 2014 an election
season in which Democrats
are hoping to break through
a statewide Republican su-
permajority, a visit from
Obama isnt exactly what
Democrats need. Will Sena-
tor Heitkamp be standing
next to President Obama
when he speaks in North
Dakota? Maybe. Afer all,
shes not up for re-election
again until 2018.
But Id be very surprised
if any Democrat who has a
chance of winning on the
statewide ballot rhis year
made much of an efort to be
seen and heard with Presi-
dent Obama while hes in the
state, including US House
candidate George Sinner
and Agriculture Commis-
sion candidate Ryan Taylor.
Finally, will Obama talk
about the failure of federal
policy on the reservations?
Presidential visits to res-
ervation communities are
pretty rare. Te last Presi-
dent to visit was Bill Clinton
in 1999, when he visited the
Pine Ridge reservation. Be-
fore that we have to go all
the way back to Franklin
Roosevelt visiting a Chero-
kee reservation in North
Carolina in 1936.
Maybe the rare visits are
for good reason. Federal
policies have been an abject
failure on the reservation.
For instance, the unemploy-
ment rate at Pine Ridge in
1999 when President Clin-
ton visited was 73 percent.
Tats incredibly high, but
believe it or not its actually
higher today, measured in
the 83 85 percent range.
Tats despite the avail-
ability of a raf of social pro-
grams for Native Americans
including universal health
care.
Te plight of Americas
Indian reservations, even as
the country around them
has fourished, is black mark
upon our national honor.
But it has happened despite
the vigorous implementa-
tion of the philosophy of
social policy that President
Obama and other liberal-
minded leaders would bring
to the rest of the country.
When President Obama
visits Indian country, he will
be visiting an area where
lef-wing social policies have
failed.
Will he acknowledge that?
Probably not.

Intern joins staff
of Independent
M
y name is Ashley
Domino. I will be writ-
ing as an intern for the
Independent this summer as part
of my college education. I am 21
years old and I will be a senior
this year at the University of
Jamestown. I am a Mass Commu-
nications major with a concentra-
tion on Convergent Journalism.
At the University of Jamestown
I was the Enterprise Director
for the Collegian for the last two
years, and did staf writing as well.
As director I oversaw enterprise
news.
I also have worked as an anchor
on our universitys television sta-
tion over this past year.
Besides being involved in
classes and the student media
center, I sing in the University of
Jamestown Concert Choir, and
at the beginning of this summer
we went on a tour throughout
Europe.
When I graduate in the spring
of 2015, I hope to hold a position
at a publication writing feature
stories or covering sports.
OUTDOOR: From 8
clear, and they also flter out
harmful ultraviolet rays.
One last bit of advice.
If your hair doesnt efectively
protect your scalp, a hat could
save you from burning your head.
Brimmed hats also keep direct
sunlight from getting to your
eyes.
Enjoying summer, especially
for a youngster, depends on
comfort. Kids lose interest when
they become bored, or irritated by
mosquitoes or burned by the sun.
Tese all seem like simple
reminders, but ask somebody
who forgot a hat, misplaced
their sunglasses or didnt put on
sunscreen about the afer-efects
of their recent fshing trip or
day-long kayak or canoe paddling
adventure.
Ten ask if they plan to be so
forgetful the next time out.

Leier is a biologist for the Game and Fish
Department in West Fargo. He can be reached
