Pat Bearsdale TV Show Comment/Question
From Peggey Wurgler Axtman (71): Kent, WA.
Hello Gary & All . . .
Just want to inquire if there is any more info on the Pat Bearsdale Show? We have relatives (the Arland Borgen Family of Wolford) who had a band that appeared regularly on the show. I am fairly sure they would be interested in seeing any old tapes or recordings of past performances. I recall my parents (John & Irene Wurgler, Rugby) would never miss the show on TV. I remember Pat always sang “On the Wings of a Snow White Dove”.
Thanks for keeping this ‘blog’ alive. I certainly appreciate the opportunity to stay connected!

Gary and Friends of Dunseith School,
This past month of June, at a Children of Trauma conference, I met an elementary teacher. She told me she is the daughter of Dr. and Mrs. Sawchuk.
We had a warm visit discussing her dad. And she shared her mum was living at Fargo.
Marilyn Sawchuk was the wife of an esteemed Doctor.
Dr. Sawhuk practiced medicine at Rolette Hospital. He also served Dunseith and possibly Belcourt.
Dr. Sawchuk was our family physician for many years.
As our family doctor; he and Dr. Cook, delivered my brothers, surgically removed my third grade appendix in the operating the theatre at Rolette Hospital.
Later, when I was in college, Dr. Sawchuk surgically removed a growth on my eyelid….at the Dunseith Clinic office.
Both mom and Dad felt they could call on him and he would be open to discussion.
My parents respected him immensely/He was smart, capable and very kind.

Everyone In North Dakota Should See What’s Inside The Gates Of This Abandoned Sanatorium
North Dakota is dotted with the occasional abandoned farm house, empty towns that once thrived, and a few unusual facilities that are no longer in use and have been mostly forgotten about. One of the most notable is an abandoned places in the Peace Garden State is the San Haven Sanatorium. It was once a state facility for tuberculosis patients, then later for mentally ill patients, before being shut down in the 1990s. Today, it still sits like an empty shell of what it once was with a dark past, and seeing what’s inside those grounds is staggering yet fascinating. Take a look for yourself:
The San Haven Sanatorium was built as a tuberculosis sanatorium in 1912 in the Turtle Mountains of North Dakota. Today, it sits abandoned.
