Also, its spring cleaning time!!! Still waiting for the Northern Pike to start the spring spawn but I can feel it in my bones we will see them jumping the dam soon.
On another note: Its time for the PROM!!!! Please be careful and keep your dates safe to and from the event.

Merry Christmas Dewey Bear

Today, I just wanted to say THANK YOU to Mr. Dewey Bear!!! He was on his way to Minot to mail out all of his granchildren a Christmas Gift. Now thats a good grandpa!! Over the years Mr. Bear has become one of the PRC Cornerstones! He is humble, punctual and always on a mission! I have had the honor of getting to know him and I must say the world would be a better place if there were more men like him. Always busy helping others in some kind of way. Whether its working on getting a car started, a furnace working or just visiting. Thank you Dewey Bear for everything you do! If you see him out and about tell him Merry Christmas!! He is definately someone everyone should have the pleasure of meeting and greeting!!

Angel Tree Fundraiser

Just wanted to remind everyone of the Angel Tree Fund Raiser scheduled for 10 am the MHA Admin. Building. Please come out and support our children. Also, we are struggling a bit with gifts for infanyts 12 months and younger. We are hoping to purchase each one 7 boys and 10 girls a blanket. Looking for a vendor to purchase 17 pendleton blankets from. If you know of one that has them in stock and ready to go please call us at the office.
 

Resolutions

Well its almost time for all of those "Resolutions"... Over the years I have seen these become more and more like statistics..."Lies, more lies and damned lies!" LOL I guess for me the important thing is that I can make choices! What we choose does impact our life. I liken this to a very simple behavior modification technique I implement from time to time... Make the "LOW RISK CHOICE!". I have come to realize that if I do so then I will probably be healthier, live longer and be happier!!! The difficult thing is often determining or defining the difference between a low risk choice and high risk choice. Okay again I need to keep things simple.. I am afflicted with diabetes. A high risk choice for me would be going to the doughnut shop and bumping off a dozen or so of those creme filled long johns and an apple fritter for good measure (which I truly crave from time to time). It is a high risk choice for me because it will jack up my blood glucose, slowly deteriorate my vision, kill my kidneys and make me a grumpy and grouchy spirit! It really does not take long for our choices to become habbits. Soon enough they would be amputating my foot and i would be in renal failure. A low risk choice (in terms of my diabetes) is to eat fewer carbs and empty calories. Exercise more so than walking to the checkout line.. So it is important for us to understand that what is low risk and high risk is different from person to person. The age old Nature vs Nurture issue seems to be perpetual and I choose not to get lost in semantics here but rather simplify things for me to understand. So with the Holiday Season upon us I urge everyone to consistently make the "Low Risk Choice". It all starts with the conscious effort we make with each and every choice...

A Wise Man

Just wanted to forward something a "Wise Man" recently shared with me..."In our culture people are used to having constant activity: computers, cell phones, television, email, video games. There is nothing wrong with any of that. But the Bible tells us that we need to stop and be still so we can focus on knowing God. I've found this to be true especially during the difficult times. When you are facing a challenge, it is easy to want to run to a friend or talk about it with a co-worker.

Prayers

Our deepest thoughts and prayers go out to our families in mourning. We have a great sense of loss and are doing our best to continue feeling, dealing and healing here at the PRC. When things like this happen it reminds us of what truly is important in life....
