I under- stand he is a great coach, and has done a tremendous job of elevating the Bison to national prominence in college football. But what I don't under- stand is why contracts aren't honored in sports. And since I am a heck of an athlete, maybe that is why I don't understand. If you plan on leaving anyway, why negotiate a contract. I know I am in the minority on this, but I would have said, "Goodbye. Thank you for all you have done. And you can watch the champion- ship game on ESPN from a motel room in Laramie." But then that's just me. It's a far cry from the way Fred Fridley Sr. handled his stint at Watford City. As head coach for 42 years, he was several times coach of the year in North Dakota, and one time National High School Coach of the Year. He could have left Watford at any time for more money and more prestige. But he became a Wolf. And he stayed a Watford City Wolf. I think that was a touch of class that most coaches and most pro athletes do not have. I'm not sure if I told you that I kind of coached Fred in golf. You see, Fred and I were golf partners in league golf for a number of years. I coached him well. He gave me a stroke a hole and two on the par 5 s. Then we played pretty even. But as many of you know, and I wrote about it sev- eral years ago, Fred and I are both deaf. You know. Like "What'd you say?" Our conversations during a round of golf would go some- thing like, "How are the cat- tle doing?" And I would rely, "I bought Will a saddle for his birthday." Fred. "What'd you get on that hole?" Me. "I filled the cart last week. It's your turn." Me. "How are the boys doing?" Fred. "I think it's about 150 yards." Me.

ND Game and Fish Department ANS coordinator Fred Ryckman said for the second consecutive year, no zebra mussels were detect- ed in the Otter Tail and Red riv- ers at Wahpeton, where immature zebra mussels were found in both 2010 and 2011. "This is encouraging news," Ryckman said. "However, adult zebra mussels discovered last year in Minnesota's Otter Tail drain- age continue to move closer to North Dakota. In addition, adult zebra mussels were documented this fall in Lake Winnipeg, which is of great concern to Manitoba officials." Statewide monitoring efforts also indicated known populations of ANS in existing ND water bod- mation and education campaign, since 2009, and all were from and enforcement efforts, with the taken from unit 3F2 in southwest- intent of full compliance with. ern North Dakota. All four were existing rules and regulations. Mule Deer from 3F2 Tests Positive for CWD A mule deer taken from unit 3F2 during the deer gun season has tested positive for chronic wasting disease. Dr. Dan Grove, North Dakota Game and Fish Department wild- life veterinarian, said a hunter shot the adult buck in western Grant County and submitted the head for testing as part of the hunter-harvested surveillance pro- gram. Testing was performed at Michigan State University. Game and Fish is awaiting verification of initial tests results from a national lab in Ames, Iowa. The MSU lab still has some 3F2 samples to test, as well as all samples from the eastern third of the state. Grove said according to the hunter, the animal looked healthy, with no visible signs of having any within the same general area. The hunter:harvested 'surveil- lance program annually collects samples taken from hunter-har- vested deer in specific regions of the state. In addition to unit 3F2, samples during the 2013 deer gun season were collected from units in the eastern third of the state. CWD affects the nervous system of members of the deer family and is always fatal. Scientists have found no evidence that CWD can be transmitted naturally to humans or livestock. Look for New Boat Registrations Boat owners are reminded that 2014 is the first year of a new 3-year registration period, and with it comes an increase in license fees passed during the 2013 legislative session. Effective Jan. 1, the price to register motorboats under 16 feet ies are generally stable, and in health issues, in length, and all canoes, increases Ellendale some instances are even in decline.

Claysoot is a primitive settlement with a horrifying enigma. Every male reaching the age of 18 disappears at midnight on his birthday. Brothers Blaine and Gray had thought themselves somewhat reconciled to this strange fact of life until the day Blaine turns 18. After Blaine's farewell celebration, Gray is frustrated by his helplessness. He begins searching for answers along with Emma, the daughter of the town's healer. Many inconsistencies suddenly make them question the whole riddle of Claysoot. Why is there a Wall around the city that it is death to climb? Where are the young men taken when they leave Claysoot? What does the mysterious incomplete message left by Gray's dead mother mean? Gray and Emma finally decide that the only solution to the puzzle is to make an attempt to climb the Wall. This story will be enjoyed by middle and high school readers for its outstanding action and adventure scenes and its intriguing and twisting plot. The cliffhanger ending will undoubtedly make readers long for the sequel. The Sanctuary by Ted Dekker is the gripping story of vigilante priest, Danny Hansen, who is serving a fifty-year prison term in California for the murder of two abusive men. Filled with remorse, Danny is determined to live out his days by a code of non-violence even within a ruthless prison system. But when Renee Gilmore, the woman he loves, receives a box containing a bloody finger and demands from a mysterious enemy, Danny must find a way to escape. They are both drawn into a terrifying game of life and death. If Renee fails, the priest will die; if Danny fails, Renee will die. And the body count will not stop at two. Ted Dekker presents a powerful thriller that relent- lessly plumbs the depths of punishment and rehabilitation. Pawn of Prophecy is the first novel in the wonderful fantasy series The Belgariad. It all begins with the theft of the Orb that for so long protected the West from an evil god. As long as the Orb was at Riva, the prophecy said, its people would be safe. However, Garion, a simple farm boy, is skeptical about matters of magic. Then, in a twist of fate, he learns not only that the story of the Orb is true, but that he must set out on a quest of unparalleled danger to help recover it. Fate is leading him far from his home, sweeping him irrevocably toward a distant tower--and a cataclysmic confrontation with a master of the darkest magic. This novel that launched the Belgariad series, presents a mag- nificent epic of fate and magic, of danger, and a prophecy that must come true.
