Lost email addresses
I executed a Microsoft Windows 10 “Fresh Start” operation on my desktop computer. In the process I lost every email address in my address book. I was careless and didn’t read all of the info. I was able to go back thru my sent files and retrieve email addresses only without names. That is what I’m using for this posting. Eventually I will get the names married up the Addresses.
I lost over 2,000 email addresses. I am recovering. It’s a slow process. With all involved I haven’t been able to get a blog posted for the past 10 days.

Judy surprised us this past week and rallied for a few days but her time has come! Judy is surrounded by those who love her and she’s had many visitors the past few days. We’ve given Judy permission to go and sit at the feet of Jesus and be healed. We will update everyone when we have more information to share. Love, The McGuire family

Posting from Jim Kofoid: Bottineau, ND
Excellent piece! Our Dunseith neighbor, Bill Hosmer, is shown! Must watch!
Operation Rolling Thunder was the code name for an American aerial bombing campaign during the Vietnam War. U.S. military aircraft attacked targets throughout North Vietnam from March 1965 to October 1968.

Friends, I hadn’t seen this before and found it very interesting and moving.
A fighter pilots current color picture, a simple paragraph with a powerful message, along with some black & white original photos … this format tells the important story in a different way.
Thank you Karen Larson (Bottineau Spectrum)

Hi Gary.. I , Lorraine Richard, at that time in my life..attented my jr. and senior year in Dunsieith.. My classmates were Dorthy, Darrell and those great folks. Thanks.. Wayne and I are now Mesa AZ residents..but head back to the Tutle Mts. every once in a while, as that is where I was raised, and our grandson Bryan Schweitzer, is owner of State Farm Agency in Bottineau. Lorraine Nelson
Folks, Thanks to Darrel and Dorothy Fassett for referring Lorraine (Wayne) Richard Nelson to us. I just sent Lorraine the Richard Matrix that I put together asking her where she fits into the Richard family.
Thanks for this reply Lorraine. We are excited to hear more from you. Gary
The Dunseith School Song:
From Bonnie Awalt Houle (56): Becker, MN
Good Morning Gary,
In answer to Kenny Nerpel:
Dunseith School Song
Hurrah for Dunseith High School we’re out to win,
You may have beat us once before but you won’t do that again. Rah, Rah, Rah,
Hurrah for Dunseith High School we’re out to fight
The Boy’s that are going to win tonight are the Boy’s in the Blue and White.
Rah, Rah, Rah, (actually 15 Rahs)
The Girl’s Basketball Team had no cheerleaders and we had no other female teams so I guess no one was bothered by the phrase (The Boy’s that are going to win tonight are the Boy’s in the Blue and White.) Today that would be a BIG ISSUE!
Our song was sung to the same tune as the one used by Belcourt. In one Tournament game both the Belcourt Cheerleaders and the Dunseith Cheerleaders were out on the floor at the same time doing their different songs. Neither group backed down and we both finished together.

The Dunseith School Song:
From Dick Johnson (68): Dunseith, ND.
This is the banter between Lola and me about the school song. She remembers it well!
Gary and Friends,
Kenny Nerpel asked about the Dunseith School Song. It’s ‘Our Director’ but I can only remember part of the words. It starts out — “Hurrah for Dunseith High School” and ends with “the boys that are going to win tonight are the boys in the blue and white.” I think I have that much right, but our many cheerleaders should be able to cover for me on this one! Thanks Gary!
Dick’s message to Lola Metcalfe Vanorny (68): Lola,
Hey there cheerleader, do I have this right? There are more words that I remember but not how they fit together. Maybe you could send the words to Gary if you remember. Thanks.
Oh Brother a blank but this is what comes to mind– seems kind of screwy though
Hurrah for Dunseith High school We’re out to win You may have beat us once before But you won’t do that again-rahrahrah!-
Hurrah for Dunseith High School We’re out to fight For the boys that are going to win tonight Are the boys in the Blue and White—
or something like that!__ HA!!
Picture from Neola Kofoid Garbe: Bottineau & Minot, ND.
Has this grad been included in your newsletters? She graduated in 1971. I checked with Karen Larson, a Bottineau High School member of the Class of ’71–she didn’t recognize this grad.
Neola, I think this girl was identified as being from Dunseith. Without a name, I’m not sure.
Folks, do any of you recognize this gal? Gary
