When Jack passed away in 1967, Helen decided to take a chance and do something she'd wanted to do since childhood: become a veteri- narian! She started pre-vet in 1968, going; to Mankato State College. She was ' then accepted into the College of Vet—’ erinary Medicine at the University of . Minnesota (St. Paul), and began at- tending classes in September of 1970.

While employed there, she met wallis Knutt of Rock lake, who was to become her hus— band. They met when Helen was sent up to Rock lake to do some blood testing on some hogs for Wallis and his brother Ronald. They would meet a few more times, professionally, over the summer. When the results of the lab tests on the hogs came back, Wallis, who was mostly in charge of the hog operation, asked her to ex— plain them over dinner. After dinner, when he began opening doors for her and asked what she wanted to do next, she realized that they were, in fact, on a date! After dating the rest of the summer, Wallis came to the Minneapolis area to see her again while also visiting his sister. At that time, he invited her to North Dakota for Christmas, where they became engaged. They were married March 16, t 1974, in the Cando Lutheran Church. Together,_ they had two daughters: Gail Ellen and Martha Eve. , Helen initially set up her veteri- nary practice on their farm, eventu- (USPS 644300) Established in ‘ Published every Monday 2021 JTN Inc. 7 Jason Nordmark, Publisher/Editor Subscription Rates. $38 per year in Rolette, Towner, Bottineau and Pierce counties $40 per year elsewhere in North Dakota $42 per year tor snowbirds $45 per year for e—subscription $46 per year elsewhere in the USA; Periodicals Mail Postage paid at Nolla, North Dakota 58367 and at additional mailing offices POST MASTER: ' Send address changes to Turtle Mountain Star, Box 849, Rolla, North Dakota Ph: 701-477-6495 - Fax:.701-477-3182 E-mail: tmstar@ utma.com ally opening Knutt Veterinary Clinic in the remodeled Jahnke Store build- ‘ing on Main Street in Rock lake.

' districts f0r areas with tribal nations might beconsidered Voter groups’ push to split North Dakota’s legislative districts in half for House seats hasn’t gained traction with . lawmakers, but the concept might come into play for tribal na- tions. . The Legislature’s Redistricting Committee meets Wednesday in. Fargo, next in a series of rapid-fire meetings to reapportion legislative districts, using the~ current 47 as a starting point} Several voter groups, including North Dakota Voters First, which led an unsuccessful 2020 ballot measure on redistricting last year, have pro- posed subdividing House districts. Voters First members say House sub- districts would benefit Indian reser- vations and rural districts. Urban growth is expected to reduce the number of rural districts, meaning their areas would grow. The concept hasn’t caught on in with the Legislature’s mapmakers, who also will hold three two-day meetings later this month in Bis- marck. before the full Legislature meets in November for a special or reconvened session to approve a new map in time for 2022 elections. But the idea might be used for tribal nations, which census data in— dicate do not have-enough residents to stand alone as legislative districts. Mapmakers are aiming for-16,576 residents per district, which is the state’s population divided by 47. . Sen.

Put a small seed into the earth and with the addition of a bit of rain and unshine it returns a hundredfold. The energy stored within every atom manifests a similar superabundance.'lhere is much to be said for giving and living abundantly. When we do 'so we almost always reap more than we sow. We may not understand the secret connections and mechanisms underlying abundance—who but the ‘botanist and the Creator really understands how the tiny acorn becomes the mighty oak?———but we can trust that it is there. Perhaps nowhere do we see this more clearly than in those who give of' themselves unselfishly. These saintly people who give it all away are from all appearances the happiest people in our midst, while the misers who can’t bear to give anything away often seem small, petty, and unhappy by comparison. So give and live abundantly, and most of all, do not skimp in your giving back to God. It will return to you many times over, though the riches you reap may be spiritual rather than material. —— Christopher SimOn The businesses listed below sponsor this message and urge you to regularly attend the church of your choice.
