BES students read program In combination with "I Love to Read" month and Dr. Seuss' birthday, our theme for this month's special interest day centered around books oll Friday, March 1, Our four sessions included a dis- cussion with Brent Olson, a local farmer and author Mr. Olson went through the steps on how a person gets a written book published. He also heard and answered many questions from the students. He was very inter- esting and funny. Another session included reading the story "Sylvester and the Magic Pebble". In this classic picture book, an adventurous donkey named Slyvester comes upon a magic pebble that grants wishes. Sylvester quickly learns he must choose his words and his wishes carefully. This was a neat story. Some of the teachers remem- bered it from their "younger" days. A third session was held in the shop where each child got to paint their own "magic pebble". Many col- ors of paint were used, even some glitter. We might have some future artists among us! The fourth session was all about wishes. Each student was given a sheet of paper with their picture and a Dr. Seuss hat on it. They were asked to write their wishes and draw pic- tures to go with them. These were laminated and will be made into a book for the library. At 2:30 we had a milk and banana bread snack, Thanks,-Christi! This was yet another successful special interest day at BES. Thanks to everyone involved in making this day successful. # PHILIP ADELMAN AND ALEX SIS concentrate on painting rocks for Special Interest Day at BES. Local Author, Brent Olson' talks to 1st graders from BES. Mr. Olson was very fun to listen to.

I have traveled to Ortonville nearly every year for the last sixteen years and many of these trips were made by car or truck bearing out-of-state plates. Despite my numerous trips through town in my out-of-state vehicle, I have yet to be pulled over during one of my visits. I was six4e,e.n years old when I started these vsits to Ortonville. Mr. Hussey stated that "...if you are young and from out of state you are assumed to be a drug dealer, and will be pulled over and-searched even ltith no probable cause to searchor a valid reason to be pulled over in the first place." If this statement were true, then why have I never had a similar experience in all nay years of travel through Ortonville as a youngster with out of state plates'? Mr. Hussey, while obviously well I versed in the Bill of Rights, should look into expanding his vast knowledge by reviewing the written law of the State of Minnesota and the City of Ortonville. It is certainly a "travesty" that he did not know that possession of marijuana is illegal in Minnesota. If Mr. Hussey had not broken any laws perhaps he would actually have a valid reason for, writing a letter. I commend the Ortonville Police Department for a job well done. They are certainly capable of distinguishing a bad seed from a good one and Mr, Hussey's letter only exemplifies that. ., Last!y, could you please ask Mr. Hussey to forward that phone number for Congress to me? Maybe you could even publish it; I'm sure that many citizens would find it useful.
