Water (Continued from Page 1) The need to maintain "the plant sparked a bit odiscassio n amongst those iff attendance; Mayor Scott Mitchell said more popldous com-. munities like Minor don't have two sources of water, and asked why a community the size of Rolla would need to have more than one. "If a city like Minot does not have two water treatment plants I am ques- tioning why we would need two," Mitchell said. Julius indicated some cities have a pump on a coulee or some other source of water that can be utilized in the event the town is without water during a fire. Hemmy made it clear he favors the third option. "I won't support punching holes here to find more bad water," Hemmy said. "We can get good water from Shell Valley aquifer." The engineers also presented the council with the findings of a water quality comparison and the results were a bit staggering. The total hard- ness for Rolla water is currently at 797 milligrams per liter. The hard- ness in Belcourt was 514 mg/L and as All Seasons it was at 361 mg/L. The total sulfate in Rolla water is 594 mg/L while in Belcourt, that num- ber is 257 and All Seasons it is 118. The total dissolved solids was also on the high-side for Rolla at 1410 mg/L, compared to 808 in Belcourt and 450 at All Seasons. The engineers also presented the council with what those numbers could be if the council took option one and upgraded the entire water treatment plant. The total hardness would be 120 mg/L while the sulfate would be decreased, to 94 mg/L and the total dissolved solids wo'dld be ", 223 mg/L. Following more discussion, no ac- tion was taken. The council asked the engineers to come back with more costs, including how much it would be to maintain the water treatment plant as a backup system while utilizing water from Turtle Mountain Utilities.

By creating a Public Health completed a commu- multi-faceted plan driven by the data nity-level Needs Assessment cen- tered O n underage drinking and adult binge drinking. The purpose of this Needs Assessment is to determine how and where to focus prevention efforts in addressing these problems in the community. Rolette County Public Health gathered, reviewed and summarized community data surrounding a!co- hol-related crashes, alcohol-related arrest rates, youth and adult alcohol consumption and factors that con- tribute to these issues. The priorities identified through this process are limited law enforcement work- force/resources, youth access and use, and driving after drinking. Based on these results, Rolette County Public Health is now begin- ning to develop a plan to guide ef- forts towards addressing these problems. Substance abuse problems found in the community Needs As- sessment, our efforts are more likely to succeed. The Strategic Prevention Frame- work State Incentive Grant (SPF SIG) is an infrastructure grant pro- gram of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administra- tion (SAMHSA). The funding is to support states, tribes, and communi- ties in building a solid foundation for delivering and sustaining effective substance abuse prevention. Grant funds run through September of 2015. Rolette County Public Health is receiving $129,834 through the grant to combat underage drinking and adult binge drinking.

Your expressions helped us thorugh this difficult time. Myron Patrow Scott (Renee) Patrow & Family Stacy (Brian) Hipsag & Family Jim (LaDonna) Saari & Family Blessed Are the Poor in Spirit It may seem odd that the very first of the beatitudes bestows a blessing on the poor in spirit and promises that the kingdom of heaven is theirs (Matthew 5:3). Should we not seek spiritual riches rather than spiritual poverty? One chapter later we are told to store up treasure in heaven, for "where your treasure is, there your heart will be also" (Matthew 6:21). The blessing for the poor in spirit is not meant to denigrate spiritual treasures but rather to elevate the spirit of poverty and humility. Jesus says repeatedly that he did not come to call those who are already saved, but rather to save the lost. The healthy do not need a doctor, but the sick do. We would do well to remember t0 gloom .z ,._ Humble here that the scribes and Pharisees were i yburselves before the paradigms of virtue, rich in spiri t and proud of Lord, and he will exalt their piety, but, didn't seem to need or heed Jesus's message. Jesus had vastly more to offer .you. the weeping adulteress who was thrown at His feet than he did to her accusers. And He had more respect for the impoverished widow who James 4:9-10 humbly put her two small coins in the temple treasury than the wealthy who made a show of putting in larger amounts. God loves the poor, and those who are poor in spirit even more, so we should count it a blessing when we are feeling lowly and humbled. - Christopher Simon The businesses listed below sponsor this message and urge you to regularly attend the church of your choice, Turtle Mountain Star Rolla Drug 477-6495 477-3174 Dacotah Ban k Member FDIC 477-3175 f t Theel Motors 477-3124
