Dear Abby concludes The reason that woman is having problems is she's using the site to find sex partners when she really wants more. She needs to look in the "relationship" section or on a relationship site. Don't blame men for wanting to have sex when that's what she's advertising. They aren't all "bad." They are actually more truthful than she is. -- HAPPILY COUPLED IN OMAHA

TWO TO TANGO DEAR TAKES ONLY TWO: If you want to hang onto Jose, simmer down and be less heavy-handed. Dictating who he can dance with only makes you appear to be jealous, insecure and controlling. Because he and Blanca have danced together for so long, it's understandable that she expects to dance with him. My

advice is to be gracious and hold onto your temper, because if you don't, your relationship with Blanca will no longer be friendly, and it could cost you your boyfriend. DEAR ABBY: My mother-inlaw is a good person, but she never wants to be around us or our children. She lives only 30 minutes away, has only one child (my husband) and has been widowed for more than five years. She has never called our house, didn't visit when the kids were born and usually mails gift cards at birthdays and Christmas. My own mother died a few months ago. Our kids are almost 13 and 10, so they're not babies anymore. I try to reach out to her, but she is cold and not responsive. What else can I do? -- NO GRANDMA IN AUSTIN, TEXAS DEAR NO GRANDMA: What does your husband think about this? Has his mother always been this way? Could the problem be that she dislikes you or is disappointed in her son? There is no way to force a connection on someone who is unwilling, and I'm not sure you would even want to. It appears your mother-in-law isn't maternal and prefers her independence. I'm sorry that your feelings are hurt, but if you crave closeness with an older woman, you will have to look elsewhere to find it. DEAR ABBY: My family is having a Thanksgiving conundrum. My uncle and his wife have offered to host the holiday. My uncle hesitated about having it because he recently lost his job. My grandmother decided that each couple

School receiving large number of out-of-district request Regular Woodlin School Board Meeting for November Submitted by Leslie Manley The business meeting came to order with all board members in attendance and proceeded with approving the agenda with amendments. Mary Anderson of the Limon MCC, who was present via VNET, then talked about the students who are taking college courses and number of credits as well as the one staff member teaching a course. She will also be at Woodlin on 11-25-2013 to visit with students and get registration for the spring semester courses. The consent agenda was then approved. Additional audience present included the new Language Arts teacher, Cindy Knoch, who took over when the previous teacher moved. The seniors presented preliminary information about the proposed senior trip to the N. Carolina Outer Banks and surrounding sites including botanical gardens, Naval station, and aquarium just to mention a few possibilities. The seniors have also just started on the new state science and social studies assessment tests from the state as "beta" test takers. They are taking the online versions which include multiple choice answers, written out answers, and creating graphs, as well as interactive answers. Their results as well as their feedback about the tests will go back to CDE to hopefully create even better assessment tests in the future. A number of out-of-district requests for attending have been coming in to the administration and we do have a couple of new students. The advanced biology students along with a couple of others

went for a field trip to the CU Anschutz Medical Center where they gave a good accounting by understanding a significant portion of the terminology being used as compared to students from other districts. In addition, we have heard that a 2004 Woodlin graduate is now in rotation at Children's Hospital in Denver. Discussion items included policy KDE (Crisis Management), KDB (Public's Right to Know/Freedom of Information), and JFAB/ JFABA (Admission of Nonresident Students/Tuition Charges). In addition, there was a brief synopsis and discussion about the tabletop exercise for a school disaster (in that exercise a shooter was the disaster) held in Akron. There will be a followup "live" exercise sometime in the spring. In action items, policies JB (Equal Education Opportunity) and JH (Student Absences and Excuses) were approved. Policy JFBB and FBB-R (Inter-District Choice /Open Enrollment) was tabled for a future meeting requiring additional clarification verbiage. In addition the certified contract for Cindy Knoch was approved. A Christmas bonus was also approved. Old business included further discussion of the board helping out at the Christmas Concert on 12-11-2013. New business included the meeting with Arickaree board regarding the athletic co-op on 11-26-2013 and confirming the date for the regular scheduled board meeting, which will be on 12-17-2013 at 7:00. The board meeting was then adjourned.

turkeys would drop dead. The heaviest turkey ever recorded came from our British friends across the Atlantic. This gobbler weighed in at a massive 86 pounds.

welcome home No kidding, I’m a pig Woodlin Grade School By Jerry Patterson The other day, I was visiting with Rachel, our sixth grade grand daughter, at the Otis Elementary School's Thanksgiving dinner when the topic of our national bird came up. I asked her if she knew what our national bird was, and she correctly answered, the bald eagle. Then I said, "Did you know that Ben Franklin wanted the turkey to be our national bird?" With a confused look on her face she asked, "then what would we eat on Thanksgiving?" She was serious and so was Ben Franklin, but I could see her point and the national dilemma it would've caused if Ben would've gotten his way. Grandmas across our great nation would've been in a panic trying to figure out an economical way to feed fifty to seventy people on Thanksgiving and even maybe Christmas. There wouldn't be such a thing as a Butterball, no stuffing; I hate to even think about the consequences if the turkey had been made our national bird.

As a strong supporter of local youth programs, Global Harvest of Colorado, LLC made a generous donation in 2013 to the Washington County 4-H program for

youth leadership and citizenship experiences. Some of the funds helped send youth to state 4-H events earlier in the year. However, it was very fortunate to have some

of the money remaining for one more scholarship to help fund a local youth to participate in a national level 4-H event. On Friday, November 29th when many people are rushing to the stores to for “Black Friday” holiday shopping, Brandon Schenk of Akron will be boarding an airplane in Denver with 25 more Colorado 4-H teens. These young people, accompanied by Connie Cecil, State 4-H Specialist, and two 4-H adult volunteers, will be heading to the 2013 National 4-H Congress November 29 through December 3, 2013 in Atlanta, Georgia. Schenk was selected to par-

ticipate in this event because his 4-H Robotics project earned the Senior Grand Champion at the Colorado State Fair. This trip is being sponsored by the Colorado 4H Foundation, which pays a portion of the expenses for all Colorado delegates. The Schenk family and the Washington County 4-H Council, using some of the Global Harvest funds, provided the balance of the fees. The National 4-H Congress experience provides a great opportunity for 4-H members from the across the country to come together and learn about personal health and fitness, daily life made better and more fun through science, community involvement, culture diversity, and service to others while meeting new friends and experience Atlanta, Georgia. The event kicks off Friday evening with dinner and an opening assembly. The education, fun and teamwork continues from 7 a.m. to midnight each day, with the final session closing at 10 a.m. Tuesday, December 3rd with the Colorado delegation returning to Denver that afternoon. Schenk is looking forward to this national 4-H event, meeting youth from many states, and sharing his experiences on his return to Akron.

related to alternatives in mortality composting. Extension specialists from Montana State University, Colorado State University, New Mexico State University, University of Wyoming, and NRCS produced handbooks and videos to train workers and owners about proper methods for composting livestock mortalities. Dealing with surface water and groundwater issues in northeast Colorado, the East Cherry Creek Water District called on John Deering to assist with calculating the impacts of various options being considered as alternatives to permanent dry-up of formerly irrigated lands. Deering’s part of the project was to forecast the economics of limited irrigation production in selected areas of the basin where water leases might be considered, leaving a lesser quantity of water for agricultural production. The published report included a

number of items related to conversion of irrigated lands into dryland or limited irrigation scenarios. Fire damage assessments is another issue that Deering contributed to in recent years. The Last Chance Fire and Heartstrong fires brought the need for damage assessments for county and individual needs. Along with Dr. Casey Matney, CSU Range Specialist, Deering was able to provide a preliminary assessment of damages that assisted some producers in justifying insurance payments for their losses. Deering leaves Extension with many tools that he helped develop to address the needs of producers, businesses and communities. He takes with him a very diverse skill set that will serve him well in the realm of agriculture finance. Deering starts his new job and career December 2, 2013 in his hometown of Yuma.

By Alicia Barry It’s a situation that we hear of so often, in the right place at the right time. For Washington County EMT Collin Patterson, he was able to put his skills to use at a time he was least expecting. What started as a day of

the much anticipated 6-Man State Championship football game between Liberty/Stratton and HiPlains quickly turned into a kind of excitement that no one wants to endure. Jerry Patterson and his grandson, Tanner Patterson, had made plans to attend the

“The Heart of Christmas” to be held on Sunday, Dec. 8 Come early and enjoy the beautiful Christmas prelude by Bernice Cosner violinist. Please attend the Christmas cantata ‘The Heart of Christmas’ as performed by the Community Choir. ‘The Heart of Christmas’ tells the timeless story that we remember each year in a creative, profound way-by probing the hearts of those most directly involved in St. Luke’s account of that first Christmas. Three narrators

propel the scripture-based narrative, while three soloists participation enhance the choir. Performances will be Sunday December 8, 2013 at the Washington County Nursing Home at 2:00pm and Sunday December 15, 2013 at the First Presbyterian Church in Akron at 2:00pm followed by a reception.

State Football Championship between Liberty/ Stratton and High Plains on Saturday, November 16th. Making plans to leave so they could make the kick off, they decided lunch at 11:00, then on to the game, which would give them plenty of time to make the kick off. Jerry doesn’t like to miss it. As plans get changed, Collin, son of Jerry and dad to Tanner, decided he wanted to go, but he was still in Yuma. Problem was it was 11:00! So Collin said he would be there to pick Jerry up at 11:45. He finally arrived at 12:00, which meant that Jerry, Otis Telegraph & otsportschek reporter, was not going to make the kick off and would be late to the game. As the Patterson’s arrived at the game, the parking lot was packed. There was a mass of people, approximately 1000. As the Patterson vehicle tried to make their way to the north end of the packed stadium parking lot, a man jumped out and started waving his hands wildly. With such a large crowd at the game, the Patterson’s assumed they were being stopped from going further because of no room to park. Little did they know that the ambulance quickly approaching the vehicle’s rear was on its way to help a man lying near the southeast corner of the field. With so

Thanksgiving is a time we reflect on the blessings in our lives. For some, it is for a wonderful dinner or material goods. For a countless number of others, especially those who face medical problems, it is the simple idea of waking up another day. For Luanne Shafer, Thanksgiving is especially special. Shafer has lived in the Otis area her entire life, 63 years. She was a staple in the Otis School District until she became ill and retired. Now, she works part time, or NECALG, and writes the Taste of the Plains weekly recipe for the Otis Telegraph. The reason she writes about her illness is not for attention for her, but to educate others. Little is known in our area about Immune Deficiency illness, and this is a way to

maybe touch others. Here is her story: “I can trace my illness back 7-8 years. I have never asked why me, or felt sorry for myself, but instead have tried to make the best out of what I have. In 2011, I was given the diagnosis of Common Variable Immune Deficiency (CVID). I was told this illness comes from genetics and inheritance. I had a family history, and so I accepted this as the reason. Over the years, along with CVID, I had problems with my thyroid. I was told I had to have surgery, and little did I know this would be part of the answer as to why I had CVID. They did the repair work to the thyroid and also removed the Thymus gland. The Thymus gland is an organ located in the upper

chest. Immature lymphocytes leave the bone marrow and find their way to the Thymus, where they are “educated” to become mature T-lymphocytes. Cytotoxic T-cells mature in the thymus and are responsible for killing infested cells. Helper T-cells are specialized lymphocytes “help” other T-cells and Bcells to perform their functions. There is no cure for CVID and I will have to take treatments the rest of my life, but with certain precautions, I can live a fairly normal life. I know some people go through life and suffering and never know WHY the reason for their illness. Luckily for me, it is a true gift to know why.”

many people, there was nowhere to go; they were stopped in their tracks. Patterson did what he was trained to do and without hesitation, jumped out of the car and headed straight toward the individual on the ground, not knowing what he was about to encounter. With the event unfolding, Collin was less than 20 feet from the man who had just collapsed. The predicted time was approximately 2 minutes. Not wanting to step on any toes, Patterson asked if they would like his help. They graciously accepted, and Patterson took over the AED to revive

the man who had just suffered a heart attack. Patterson went on and rode with the ambulance crew to Burlington. Had they left on time, there was no way Collin would have been able to assist if they had left on either of the scheduled times. Jerry Patterson said, “It was as if I was delivering a guardian

angel!” In Washington County, we are blessed to have several medical professionals, from police, ambulance, fire, that all would have reacted in the same manner to help out a person in need. This Thanksgiving season, go out of your way to express your gratitude to these professionals for all that they do.

Not much news this week, seems like everybody is saving their excitement for this week coming up. I am wishing you all a peaceful and safe Thanksgiving Day. I remember mine and Matt's first Thanksgiving after we were married. We had family and friends up to our house in Johnstown. I was so excited to cook for everybody. Alas, in the middle of roasting my turkey, my oven went out, and we were stuck. What to do? What to do? We fired up the grill, and finished our turkey on the grill, and had a wonderful meal afterall. Karen and Amy Vosburg and Billie Feather all attended the baby shower on Saturday for Brayden Feather at the Otis Presbyterian Church.

Send your news to

View from Lindon by Lois Scott The often asked question in recent days has been, ''Where were you and what were you doing when you heard of the news of President JFK being shot?" Among comments shared are the following: * Reggie and Robbie Wyckoff - were living in Rico, Colorado where he was working for the Federal Highway Administration surveying a new road. He came home for lunch and they heard about the assassination on the radio. * Homer Hill - came in to the house to fix himself lunch and turned on the TV hearing the news and he immediately called his late wife, Alice, who was teaching at Arriba to let her know. * Pat Hill - was with her late husband, Gwendal Leonard, and their children in the car enroute to her parents home nearby in the Karval community going across pastures. They had stopped to open a gate and it was at that very time when Pat heard the news on the car radio. * John Leach - was at

Bovina working in the garage overhauling an engine when the news came across the TV. * Verle and Buni Riemenschneider - were at the farm home of her parents, the late Ted and Avis Hicks, and all were preparing to eat an early Thanksgiving meal. * Frank Hoover - was in the music room at the junior high school in Rocky Ford. His sister's birthday was that day which spoiled the day and any celebrating for her. * Linda Hoover - was on the playground at the Liberty Elementary School in Rocky Ford. * Cindy Dreiling - was in elementary school and too young to really understand but remembers the teachers all crying so she cried too. * Bruce and Joyce Leach their neighbor Fritz Ohr came telling them the news. * Sherry Kidwell - was walking across campus at Colorado State University in Fort Collins. * Ruth Scott - was cooking at the Meadowlark Cafe at Lindon which she and her

Page 7 November 27, 2013

late husband, Don, owned and operated. * Bill Nelson - was in the lunch line in the cafeteria at Woodlin School and following school that day his parents, the late Van and Eva Nelson, picked him up and they went to Nebraska presumably for Thanksgiving with relatives * Lois Scott - likewise was in line in the Woodlin cafeteria and lunch tray partly filled when colleague, Sue (Warrick) Stackhouse, now of Otis, came in telling the news with having just heard as she passed by the office enroute to the lunchroom. This writer also vividly remembers August 9, 1963, the day of graduation from Colorado State University, which was also the day that President and Jackie Kennedy's two-day old son, Patrick Bouvier Kennedy, passed away. Linda Hoover shared of the passing of the well known British author, C. S. Lewis, on November 22, 1963. The coverage of his passing was minimal being overshadowed by the President's assassination.

Among the many literary achievements of Lewis, he is known for the 'Chronicles of Narnia'. Other news from this area does include that Homer and Pat Hill enjoyed having his cousins, Ron and Ann Perry of Delta, as houseguests during the week mentioning that Ron enjoyed trekking about unsuccessfuly for pheasants. Bill Nelson returned on Wednesday after several days in Missouri with cousins hunting for White Tail Deer. He saw one animal but it was too small, only a two point, and for a legal kill, an animal must be at least a four point. Needless to say with the snow and cold on Thursday, Bill and Kendal stayed home that evening and watched the Air Force game on television rather than from in the stadium at the Air Force Academy. Reggie and Robbie Wyckoff are enjoying the weekend at Garden City, Kansas in the home of son Josh and family.

It’s November. That means I’m suppose to write a Thanksgiving column. I’m O.K. with that. There is a list of things for which I am grateful that wouldn’t fit in the space devoted to this column and probably wouldn’t fit in this entire paper. This makes writing the story rather hard for fear I might not mention one thing I’m thankful for and just forgot about. Good things in our lives sometimes get overlooked, not because they aren’t important but because we just take them for granted. Today, the biggies on all our lists will not be mentioned. Instead, the mostly overlooked things that make my life good will be addressed. If your personal list contains some or even many of these same items, I strongly suggest seeking professional counseling. I am thankful for Scotch tape. When I write one of these columns that stinks, it always gets torn up. After writing three more even worse attempts, Scotch tape puts the first one back together, Sue then can edit it so it will be good, then sends it to your newspaper. I’m grateful for wire in any form. The old baling wire we joke about was great stuff but hard to find these days. It does show up in other forms now. I’m thankful my tires are lined with it. Once the rubber is gone I can still pull

my stock trailer a few hundred miles on the shiny wire covered tires. My wire feed welder, capable of welding incredibly thin, nearly rusted through steel, makes equipment repairs possible on our ranch. Duck tape is an obvious choice. So obvious, in fact, I’m not going to go into it. Instead I am grateful for another kind of tape. Shiny black, stretchy electrical tape. It’s pretty good at electrical work. That is overshadowed by it’s more important job of keeping a couple for my vehicles running. A small piece strategically placed over the “check engine” light keeps my pickups on the road, trouble free. I’m thankful for a Winchester lever action carbine I keep in the barn. I get it out occasionally to show to the horse that bucked me off and broke my leg. He hasn’t bucked since. Guess he understands the threat. You see, it’s not always the big things that make us give thanks. The little, often unappreciated, items make life great, too. I give thanks to the Post Office for threatening to work fewer days. Less deliveries means fewer bills. Wall street makes me grateful. It keeps those bozos there instead of moving to our town. I don’t think they would make very good neighbors. Now that I’ve dealt with the silly, frivolous things I’m grateful for, I just have to end on a serious note. I’m thankful there are readers like you out there who allow me to entertain them each week. Thank you and of course, Sue, for making this story readable.

Thank You

Ruby Iona (Chambers) Aesoph

Ruby Iona (Chambers) Aesoph was born on Jan 13, 1918 in Lesterville, SD. She was preceded in death by her parents, 1 brother and 2 sisters, her husband Moses, son Terrance Michael, and 4 grandchildren, Jason, Kelly and Nel Aesoph and Ryan Gonyo. Ruby moved with her family at a very early age to Burkmere, SD where they resided on the farm. Ruby did a great job of keeping a journal much of her life and left so many wonderful details of her life. As a child she and her sisters played paper dolls cut from a catalog. When they tired of them they let them blow into the wind, only to cut a new batch from a new catalog. She remembered riding around in the field on an old push binder at harvest time and wading in the slews near the farm stead. She recalls that her middle name, Iona, was derived from a saying at the time of World War I “I own a bond,” and so she became Ruby Iona. Ruby loved living on the open prairies of South Dakota. Summers were filled with field work, and winters with livestock chores. They gathered around the fireplace as a family on those cold winter nights while their Mom read stories to them. They were a musical family and her Mom would play the piano and the family would sing and dance. Later

they formed a family band and played for house parties and barn dances. Anyone who knew Ruby knew of her love for dancing. She wrote, “we didn’t know we were poor because there was always love.” Ruby had her high school education in Loyalton, SD and graduated as a senior in 1935. She married Moses Aesoph shortly after that and continued to live the farm life where they raised 4 daughters and 2 sons. They lost their son Terrance to illness at the age of 2. Ruby worked hard on their farm often helping with field work, gardening, cooking, chores and tending children. As the family grew and left the nest she found new interests to busy her life such as quilt making, crewel embroidering and oil painting. All were works of art. She and her husband retired to Orient, SD in 1974 where they continued to enjoy their new neighbors with card playing , church family and her hobbies. Ruby moved to Akron, Colorado in 1997 where she resided at Pioneer Haven until 2007. While there she made many friends and enjoyed their coffee times, bingo and lunch gatherings. She loved going to meet and eat where she played cards with her friends and loved the fellowship. She was a faithful member of St. Joseph’s Catholic Church and was deeply committed to her faith in the Lord. This seen her through the hard times of life.

As her health required she moved to Eben Ezer‘s assisted living in Brush, Colorado and lived there until 2010. She enjoyed her stay there and was especially fond of their hot chocolate machine, and you would see her pushing her cup of hot chocolate on her walker each afternoon. Once again, in the spring of 2010 she moved to Washington County Nursing Home to be closer to her daughter. She was an active resident there, especially loving the music that came through. You would see her dancing in the halls with her walker several times a day. During the last days of her life the care given to her from the staff at the nursing home was truly a blessing to her as well as her family. On the last days of her final journey she was surrounded by her loving family and those who worked among her and went home to be with the Lord on Nov 21st, 2013. She will be missed by all who loved her and knew her well. A Vigil service was held Sunday, November 24, 2013 at the St. Joseph Catholic Church in Akron, Colorado. Mass of Christian Burial will be held Saturday, November 30, 2013 at 10:30 a.m. at the St. Joseph Catholic Church in Orient, South Dakota. Interment will follow at St. Joseph Cemetery. Memorial donations may be made in her name to the Washington County Nursing Home in Akron, Colorado.
