Hi Gary, finally got down to the library and have been sitting here really enjoying everyones stories. I especially enjoyed the story that Dick told about Mrs. Conroy and giving that girl that swore at her the “what for”. Just as I was leaving the house this morning to come to the library there was this kid on the news whining to the t.v cameras that he wasn’t going to be allowed to walk with his class at graduation cuz he worked over the asst. principle. They said there are 1000 class mates and friends who are marching and protesting to let him walk…..Seriously….he should be in jail for assault…. …. Jeri Neamyers post about Don Johnson was so nice to read. Alot of nice memories of better days….”Where have all the flowers gone….. Thanks Gary for hanging with us…. Aggie.

The round barn was owned by Pat and Johnnie Myer. I believe their daughter Holly Myer Wheeler is the current owner. It has been on the register quite some time. Pat had the barn redone before she passed away and I am sorry I can’t remember what year that was.

Marie Iverson Staub’s (60) husband, Marvin, passed away.
From Marie: Seattle, WA
Just wanted to let you know my husband Marvin Staub, who you met at the Seattle reunion passed away on October 18th. He had heart problems but you are never prepared for something like that. We were married for 43 years it’s going to be difficult for sometime without him. I will even appreciate your e-mails more now. I know he talked to Bernadette at the reunion and she invited us to come visit and he was thinking about it but it won’t happen now. I am blessed, as I have two great boys and a lot of good friends. It’s just going to take some time.
From Lois (Bev Morinville’s friend, originally from Rolette, that she met at the Log house in Dunseith): Helena, MT.
Please keep up the wonderful news about San Haven from you and your friends’ memories! I read and forward the wonderful written memories to my cousins also! I think we all in that area had someone at the “San” at one time or another during those early years!
Again, I so appreciate the news and hope to read more! Lois Tweten

Gary thanks for keeping on sending the alumni news. It is really interesting reading all the things different ones are remembering of the years past. I wonder if Erling remembers how to play steal stiks? I can rember playing it when I went to the old country school but don’t rember the rules. We used to have lots of running games at recess and everybody got to play. keep up the good work.

Hi Gary and everyone:
Thank you Gary and Lois Fielding, Brenda hoffman and dick Johnson for your kind words. I don’t deserve them, but I will take them. Lois, was Arnold Lilleby your father, I knew him quite well, Dad bought all his gas there as well as other automotive repairs.. When you people make comments about Dunseith on Gary’s Blog, its just like old home week.
Gary, you mentioned my book, well as I have said before, its not fair or right to use this great community get together for any other purpose than to stay connected. Anyone can get in touch with me with a short E Mail and I promise to get back to anyone who is interested. As for myself, I am not any different, (I like to think) than any other North Dakotan. I just do what I need to do, and am proud to be associated with all you folks.
Best wishes to Everyone!
