Friday, under the direction of Karen Lee, the Gifted and Talented instructor at UMS, seventh and eighth grade students from the middle school were getting in a hand on the teaching experience for Science Enrichment Day at Meadowlark School.
The Science and Computers instructor at UMS, Monica Tomayer, also helped out in the project with supplies and teaching tips.
During the day at Meadowlark the UMS students, in teams of two to four, instructed and taught the younger grade kids about a wide variety of science projects.
Logan Gouchenour and Seth Moerkerke showed their groups about the inter-action of chemical reactions.
Deidre Mecham, Molly Gianarelli, Taylour Russell and Skylar Stenson showed students how color reacts under various conditions.

Zane Drishinski is a modern day Renaissance Man. He is a born and raised Conrad boy through and through. When he is not farming and ranching on the family spread or auctioneering he is entertaining the local crowd at the Whoop-Up rodeo with his clowning act.
Drishinski was born in Conrad at St. Mary’s Hospital, (the Tamarack Apartments). He went to school at CHS and graduated in 1985 before going to BYU-Idaho where he received his associate’s degree in Beef Production Management.
He took a two year hiatus from college to go to Japan on a church mission from 1987-89. In a fish out of water situation he lived in the Tokyo South area. By the end of his journey he was able to communicate in Japanese, which he still knows a little of today.

On a unanimous vote the county commissioners moved to approve an application for an oil and gas well plugging grant in the amount of $100,000 on Wednesday.
The grant will be administered by Corrine Rose, the county sanitarian and reimburses producers for part of their expense to plug nonproductive wells.
An abatement was made for a tax reduction of $77.35 on a parcel of land, adjusted by the county tax appeal board.
The commissioners received a copy of an application for the Log Cabin Bar in Brady for a liquor license.
In the application, the commissioners are given the opportunity to object to one being issued.
