Petition signers living on the first block of N. Maryland attended the city council meeting Monday to complain about two German Shepherd dogs that are terrorizing the neighborhood.
The situation has become bad enough that the Post Office will not deliver mail to the residents. This means they have to go to the Post Office to pick up their mail and there is no mail on Saturday because the Post Office is closed.
Commenting earlier on the situation, county commissioner Cynthia Johnson, who lives on the block, says about not having mail delivered, “I feel my civil liberties are being violated.”
Police Chief Gary Dent noted that citations have been issued to the people who own the animals and they have pled not guilty (‘not my dog’) in city court.

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.
