Sixth grade students write essays about their favorite senior citizens James Knoll Elementary's sixth graders participated in an essay con- test sponsored by the Ortonville Senior Citizen's Center. Jillian Wandersee won first place, followed by Jacob Berger in second, Paul Kellen was third and Abby Knutson placed fourth. The top four essays are printed below. First place: My report is about Gen Adelman. Gen is my neighbor, who lives across the street from me, and has been like a grandma to me ever since I was little. She likes going to casinos and spend- ing time with her loved ones. Ever since I was about 5-6 months old till I was about 2 or 3, Gen Adelman babysat me. We would play in the sandbox, swing on the swings and play games. She would read to me, and when I got older, she would take care of me when I was sick, once in awhile. She would make me beau- tiful dolls, and to this day always has the candy jar open when I come over, which is good. Every year she never forgets my birthday, and usually calls me, to wish me a "Happy Birthday". In return for all her kindness, throughout the years, I sell Girl Scout Cookies to her and stop by for a friendly "Hello", once in awhile. When I go over to her house, she always has questions for me, like how is school going, what I am up to, and comments like; "Wow, Jillian, you are growing up so fast!" Now, my mom and I go over there during cherry picking season, and we pack our buckets full of cherries from her tree. Which my room then makes pie. Also, Gen makes the best bread, and she always knows to save a loaf and bring it to my house. Whenever I stop by, it always feels like we have a special bond between the two of us. Gem who is quite a lot older than me, has the smarts of a mother, and is truly a wonderful, one of a kind, young spirited kid at heart. Now that is why I chose Gen Adelman for my report. Second place: My grandpa is Glenn Allen Nelson. He lives in Ortonville only two blocks from me. I chose him for my favorite Senior Citizen for many reasons. One of the reasons, of course, is because he's my grandpa and I love him. He is special to me because he does special things with and for me. When I was little, he gave me horseback rides and lifted me up to reach places I normally couldn't reach. He has a motorcycle and he gives me rides to the refuge. We sometimes climb on the rocks. Then he has to check me for wood ticks so grandma doesn't get all excited. He does fun sports activities with me and my cousin, Andy. We go shooting out at the Big Stone Rifle Club range and he gives us pointers on how to shoot better. He used to be in the National Guards. Two of his brothers were killed in action in World War II. Another fun sport we do is golfing. He helped teach me how to golf. He has gotten a hole in one at the Ortonville Golf Course two times. I think I must be going to take after him because I've already almost got three holes in one. Grandpa likes to fish, and some- times he takes me along. I can't remember that I ever caught anything, but we still had fun. Some of my favorite things to do inside with Grandpa are playing "nickels" and cards. He lets us come over and watch home movies when my mom was my age. He had a movie of the huge snowfall of 1968. The snow was up to the top of the roofs. I like to listen to his stories about things that happened in the past. Area news digest DAWSON-The security at the Dawson-Boyd Schools will be increased due to some recent problems in the parking lots and even thefts in the school. Supt. Brad Madsen informed the school board that they are setting up a video system to monitor some hallways. The system will record the live video onto a CD-ROM. Utilizing the internet, the administration can then download the information and monitor what took place in that area at that time, or later on. The system costs around $2,000, but eventually additional money will be spent on more cameras that could monitor the perimeter of the facilities. The board approved the seed money for this with the possibility later of adding more security. - ..... ' APPLETON-Minors under the age of 18 will no longer be allowed in the two city parks in downtown Appleton after 5:30 p.m. The Appleton City Council passed an amendment to the "curfew" ordinance at their May 14 meeting to close Cozy Park and Veterans Park to minors from 5:30 p.m. to 8:00 a.m. The adoption of the amendment was driven by constant problems with vandalism and littering. City Coordinator Bob Thompson reported that 25 percent of the plants they planted last year were destroyed and needed replanting. Property damage is also prevalent in these parks. Minors will be allowed in the park during the curfew hours under specific conditions. They include when they are in the company of their parent or guardian, when on an emergency errand and when an employer requires their presence in the park. MADISON-The reconstruction of 6th Avenue between Trunk Hwy. 40 and 4th Street has begun. The contractor has removed the pavement, curb and gutter and started removing the steam tunnel. The decision was made to leave the sidewalk in place until the watermain and storm sewer piping are complete. This will provide better access and reduce the possibility of damage to buildings. Several new gate valves will be installed on the watermain to give the city better control of the water system and reduce the number of buildings that are without water during the construction. He likes to tell me about how it only cost 9 cents for him to go to the movies and a penny for candy. He likes the old movies, especially ones about the different wars. When we go out to eat, he always says that I have eaten out more than he ever has. They didn't have fast food back when he was young. Grandpa has done lots of work at our house lately. He lets me help with some of the things that he does. He taught me how to use the nail gun, and I got to get on the garage roof and help shingle with him and my dad. Now you can see why I appreciate him and love him so much. Thank you, Grandpa! Third place: I am going to write about my grandpa Mike. We like to go hunting and fishing. He teaches me about hunting and shows me good places to hunt. I have some different guns that he gave me. My grandpa takes me on boat rides and on fishing trips. He is a really good fisherman and let's me use his tackle. My grandpa's cabin is only two miles from my house and he let's me stay there overnight and fish off his docks. He teaches me card games and let's me stay at his house. He takes me out to eat and we have fun together. He takes me places and buys me stuff. I help him a lot at his cabin racking leaves, putting the docks in, and keeping it look nice. Grandpa remodeled the cabin last year and I helped him a lot. Grandpa pays me when I work for him. Grandpa tells me all these funny jokes all the time. He is a fun person to be around. He teaches me a lot of stuff. I help him clean the lawn mow- ers and pontoons, that he sells. He helps me out with my school work a lot. Let's me ride his four wheeler and steer the boats when we go fishing. My grandpa is there for me all the time when I need him. He is like my dad. We get along well together. He INDEPENDENT WANT ADS PAY Thufsday and Friday. Dr. Jay Ballhagen of Roman, MT visited at the Herrmanns from Wednesday, May 14 till the 20th.
