Henderson indicated that decision could come sooner rather than later. “We are hoping for FDA approval of the vac— cines next month and allowing those five and older to receive the vaccine soon after that. We are hop- ing to see that early this fall, possibly late Sept./early October. But nothing has been set in stone yet” Another tool proven to help cut down trans- mission of the virus is face coverings. Of the K-12 school districts in Rolette County, three are re- quiring masks while two, Rolla and Rolette, are opting to have mask wearing a personal choice. Henderson said public health is always urging cau— tion when it comes to the unpredictable virus. “Mask wearing is encouraged, for everyone in- doors, especially as the case counts go up. This is for those who are vaccinated as well. We also strongly recommend a layering mitigation strate- gies — social distancing of six feet whenever possi— ble, use of plexiglass dividers, hand hygiene, etc.” Case numbers are what keep health officials up Co'uncil has additional funds for local projects In late 2020, North Central Plan- ning Council was allocated addi— tional dollars from the Economic Development Administration to inf vest in the six-county region’s eco-t nomic recovery and resilience efforts. With those funds, North Cen- tral Planning Council has made strategic investments in the creation of tools and collection of data to sup- port communities to leverage future funds to meet their existing needs. “When the opportunity to access additional funds from the Economic Development Administration was made available, we sought Out input from the leadership of each county to guide our investments,” remarked Sandy Shively, Executive Director of North Central Planning Council. “We are proud of our ability to leverage funds to best support Benson, Cava- lier, Eddy, Ramsey, Towner, and Ro- lette Counties.” ‘ Throughout 2021, North Central Planning Council expanded its Re- volving Loan Fund, ensuring busi- nesses most—impacted by the economic conditions caused by COVID-19 were able to access fi- nancial tools for recovery, and com- missioned Thomas P.

Last year the number of confirmed cases was relatively low during the summer months. As the year wore on, however, cases began to increase before rising sharply in the fall. This year’s num— bers could repeat a troubling trend. “Rolette County is in ‘Substantial risk,’ but will most likely change quickly,” Henderson said. “We were ‘low’ not even a week ago. The case numbers have risen rapidly and even though we have a fairly high vaccination rate, we are still not at 70 percent where we would like to be, prior to the .

This is especially worrisome as we enter into the school'year.” Case numbers in the country rose from two on August 6 to over a dozen on Thursday. Driving the spike is the Delta variant, which Henderson said is everywhere in the state. “The Delta variant has been fodnd to be much more contagious and will probably infect more people, with a higher viral load, most likely mak- ing them more ill than the previous variant of COVID- 19,” Henderson warned. put them in the best possible position to apply for the infrastructure fund- ing when it becomes available.” The Comprehensive Plan Self-As- . sessment can be readily accessed on North Central Planning Council’s website (www.NorthCentralPlan- ningCouncil .com).

For example, in the Genesis account of creation, God creates by mere divine utterance. He says, “Let there be light,” and there is light. Likewise, when God gives Adam the honor of naming the animals, he is allowing Adam to establish their identity once and for all. 0r consider the story in the 27th chapter of Genesis where thinking- that Jacob is in fact Esau, Isaac mistakenly gives Esau ’s firstborn birthright to Jacob. And, even when Isaac realizes the mistake, and sees that he has been tricked, he cannot simply undo what he has said. The utterance of the blessing is the b ' 'n the same way that God’s divine utterance created the world. Continuing r in the New Testament, we see \ 9 this strong connection (, between words and things. i In the prologue to the Gospel of John, we are told that “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” (John 1.1) In modern times although we have somehow lost this vital connection to our language, we all know that words are double-edged swords which can heal as well as they can hurt, offering both comfort and solace, as well as pain.
