You will need a GPS devise to Geocaching, which is a worldwide scavenger hunt where people find caches using GPS.
Following are some the cashes that will be set for Saturday;
Lugnite N48.10.203 W 111.56.668, “3r’s#1” N 48.10.128 W 111.56.930, “Building Blocks” N 48.09.809 W111.56.929, “City Limits” N48.10.058 W111.57.573, “3r’s #2” N 48.10.311 W 111.56.850, and “Pre-Conrad” N 48.10.000 W111.56.304 .
When you find a cache, sign the log book and if you have something to trade, exchange for one of the items in the cache.
Happy hunting with technology and have fun learning some history of Conrad.
Street blocked for celebration
Motorists need to be aware that on Friday and Saturday, parts of Main St. and 4th Ave. will be blocked off for the Conrad Centennial Celebration.
Friday, parts of 4th Ave. and Main St. will be blocked off for the dedication of the clock, from about 5 to 6:15 p.m.
If you park your car on Main St. for the parade on Saturday, you are asked to remove it immediately after the parade because the 300-400 blocks are going to be roped off for the Auto Show and vendors.
Votes for Shevlin and for any other declared write-in candidate, will count, as long as the full name is present and the box is checked. No votes will be counted for undeclared write-in candidates.
The aldermen races in Conrad each have a candidate who filed by the filing deadline.
In this case, if you are a voted in Ward 1, Karla Breding will be listed on your ballot. Breding was appointed to fill the seat of Gary Brown who resigned and is running for the first time.
In Ward 2, Wendy Curry Judisch will be on the ballot seeking a second term on the council.
Since there are candidates who filed for these offices, no undeclared write-in votes will be counted.
There is still the possibility of a declared write-in for each of these offices and in that event, the votes for the candidate printed on the ballot as well as the votes for the declared write-in would be counted.
Remember, with a write-in candidate, a vote is not a vote unless the full name is written on the line and the box is checked.
If the box is not checked the vote cannot be counted whether the person is a declared write-in candidate or undeclared.
In Valier, the ballot will be completely blank as no candidates filed for any of the positions.
There is one declared write-in candidate for the position of Mayor and that is McKenzie A. Graye.
For the alderman position in Ward 1, Rodney J. Christiaens has filed as a declared write-in candidate. Another individual also filed as a declared write-in candidate; however, he did not meet the residency requirements to represent Ward 1.
There are neither candidate filings nor declared write-in candidates in Ward 2 in Valier
Applying the laws to counting votes in the Valier election, votes for Graye will count for mayor and no votes for undeclared write-ins can be counted. In Ward 1, votes for Christiaens will count but no undeclared write-in votes will count.
In Ward 2 of Valier, no one filed either as a candidate or as a declared write-in candidate.
Unless a person files as a declared write-in by the Oct. 8 deadline, all undeclared write-in votes will be counted.
