Condolences to the Bob Brennan family
From Ele Dietrich Slyter (69): Dunseith, ND

We are so very sorry to hear of Supan’s passing…our hearts go out to Bob, Sonny, Sheila, Shelby and Shannon at this terrible time. She was such a wonderful person, so strong and capable. I always admired her courage to leave her family in Thailand to come here to live. She will be missed by many.

Hi Gary,
I think I’ve mentioned Auggie/Sybil Johnson’s son, D. J., was in my class in Minot many years ago. I can definitely see the resemblance between D. J. and Auggie.
Deerheart Lodge
Reply from Banche Wicks Schley (42): Grand Forks, ND
Just read about Deerheart Lodge. The mention of the house tar Mr. that had built reminded me of an incident that it was displayed (by them) in Dunseth. It was so amazing to me to see lights in this tiny doll house. There was a store next to the telephone office on the east side of the street and as I remember this where he showing these items.
Can anyone tell me when the “stone church” was built. Is it still used as a church? It must have been built as a Masonic place –but in the ’30’s it served as a community church. When was the Lutheran church moved in to Dunseith? Also, another question: there was a building
where the Satrang family lived….it had not been built as a residence ( this would have faced the highway going to Belcourt Then there was a building on the north side of town
that was also a large structure. I In the ’30’s Dunseith had a baseball team and this where they lived for the summer.
I am sure that if I would contact the bank and get a copy of the history of Dunseith…these questions are answered.
Merry Christmas to you and your family ….this includes all the people that cintribute to your daily column, May 2011 be a blesed year for all.

Snow in Germany
Greetings from Bob Lykins (Teacher): Hutto, TX
Hello from snowy Germany and the Bayischer Wald located in the heart of Bavaria, You talk about snow. I have been here for 13 days and it has snowed all but one day, Last year it took me 5 days to get here because of the storms, This year I left earlier and I missed the disasters at the airports over the past several days that you probably read about or saw on TV. It is beautiful here and there is nothing like Christmas in Bavaria. Merry Christmas to all and a very happy New Year. Bob Lykins
Bob, Enjoy your time in Germany with your son and family. Gary

A lot of Dunseith grads have backgrounds in military service. Nathan began in the National Guard at UND and later in Army ROTC. Shortly after graduation and marriage, he was assigned to Homeland Security and is stationed at Fort Greely just outside Delta Junction, Alaska.

This is Nathan’s evaluation for this year. We are pretty proud of him!

1LT Richard’s duty performance was integral to the success of my Fire Direction Center crew. During this rating period Nathan was the only dual certified operator as Sensors and Battle Analyst in the Battalion. His Operational Readiness Evaluation (ORE) scores were higher than the primary crew Battle Analyst. 1LT Richard’s technical and tactical expertise gave him an advantage at the time to execute tasks in relation to the Battalion’s strategic mission. He is, without a doubt, a mission-oriented professional; dedicated to the mission and equipped for success. Nathan was responsible for the timely and accurate submission of strategic and operational reports along with crew training products IAW Brigade Annexes and the Battalion training management SOP. Keep a close eye on his career. Ready for positions of increased responsibility based on his untapped potential. 1LT Richard is an outstanding officer and demonstrated he was the right choice as an executive officer for the battalion fire direction center on numerous occasions. He quickly acquired the skills of becoming an executive officer and enabled his fellow crew members to exceed the highest standards of training performance in the U.S. Army. Additionally, he has dual certified as a sensor operator and a battle analyst for the Ground-based Midcourse Defense Fire Direction Crews in a very challenging certification process. He has continued additional duties for his crew as well, assisting the crew APFT program through equipment donation and by personal example, maintaining his edge as a front-line leader and proficient warrior.
