QUOTATIONS Pursuant to Section 15/I-30-11 NDCC, the Belfield Public School Dis- Irict #13 requests quotations for trans- portation of students on bus route number 1, each for a period of 1 or 2 years, commencing August 28, 2013. The quotations are sought for the pur- month old baby brother, and he knows what to feed a cow. All in all, he is pretty well'educated for a kid. But phonics, at least for now, eludes him. But he has that Meyer confidence that .can't be taught. He knows all the' letters. Some- times rather than call them by name, he just gives you the sound when asked what a certain letter is. Should make phonics easy: His mother was showing him the word "red". You know. R is rrrr. E is eh (or however you write that sound). D is duh (again, however). Then you put them all together Rrrrr eeeee dddddd! "What's that'say R J?' "Polar bear," he exclaims confi- dently! Now that I think about, he may be a future writer of newspaper columns! Later, Dean Hello, It takes a special person to be a teacher. I know you already know that. But sometimes we have to re- inforce that knowledge a little. I'm not a teacher. I taught my dog, Vern Baker, to run for the house when I pick up a rock or stick and start cursing when he runs under the cattle trailer and keeps cows from loading up. I've taught my horse to throw his head up and jump when he falls asleep and steps in a hole or trips over a rock. I've taught kids how to fib to their par- ents when they are asked if Grandpa gave them ice cream be-' fore meat time. And I have been known to teach nieces and nephews their first curse words and how to supersize their order of fries. So, all in all, you can see I am somewhat of a teacher. Oh, not everything I teach is bad. I'm pretty good at the ABC's. And I can do most Dr. Seuss books from memory. You know, Big A, Little a, what begins with A. Aunt Annie's alligator, a, a, a. Big B, little But enough of that. Last week Jen was working with RJ on phonics. I guess RJ is four or five. I forget which. And he's a smart kid. He can run my phone better than I. He can play compli- cated games on an Ipad. He can run the barrels on Drifter and untie goat tail ribbons. He knows how to drive a four-wheeler and knows how to make a chocolate milk shake. He knows that Grandpa cannot feed his Students from area graduate from NDSU North Dakota State University has terns' management, from Golva (An The petition of Eleanor Basaraba, annour~ced the graduates for the for formal Iorobate of will and appoint- spring of 2013. asterisk denotes graduation with hon- ors.)

Gaebe at Being proactive is better than reactive "Blunt force trauma" is a set" of words one would not expect to use starting d beef column. However, the topic of this column is safety, and working cattle caff be challenging. Chuteside etiquette means having a system in place to get the job done and done safely. The work environment needs to be safe before any cattle ar- five, and a process needs to be estab- lished that clearly identifies who does what. The Dickinson Rese ch Extehsion Center has worked cattle under many environments and participated in train- ing to help establish good Chiiteside processes. One item that always sticks in my mind was a demonstration at one of the incident command trainings that center personnel attended. Sheri, the presenter, asked for someone to come forward to participate and started handing tennis balls to Sam, the vol- unteer. Handing him the first, second and third balls was'not an issue. However, as Sam was asked to hold more balls, both hands were needed as the fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh balls were handed to him. When Samwas given the eighth ball, all the balls fell to the floor. Thus the old saying: "I guess I dropped the ball." The point is simple. Sam could not do all that was expected of him. A common mistake in cattle operations is one person trying to do all'the work or trying to coordinate all the work. That does not work. Safe working en- vironments mean the producer needs to be willing to delegate responsibili- ties based on a fundamental trust in others. How does that happen? To start with, a "proactive" not "re- active" mindset must be present. For many organizations, work days start with meetings where discussions can open the door to good planning. No one likes meetings, but proactive peo- ple meet, discuss and lead, while reac- tive people find themselves dispersed, cussing and following. Proactive people have goals,objec- tives, outcomes and know what will be done before the day begins: Reactive people simply look back at the day and then determine what was done. The point comes back to producer mindset. Good work environments mean sharing and understanding each other's dudes and responsibilities. Var- ious people can be cross-trained to allow for systematic com,ing and going., If a el-isis does develop, every- one in the working environment knows precisely who'io look for tO get direction. Even the response to a crisis in a proactive setting is organized. Mean- while, a response to a crisis in a reac- tive setting is-disorganized and usually leads to more problems. Training is important and many people working cattle have good training. However, it is the organization of the day's events that allows that training to be utilized efficiently and safely. Once the day's activities start, proper breaks are es- sential becausefatigue and stress can take a toll as the day moves on. Heat is a killer on the cattle that are being worked and the people doing the work. Keepir g cattle and people hY- drated is critical. There are many steps to having good working environments, but the key still is producer mind-set. One can make the working day difficult, toler- able or enjoyable. The best pick is en- joyable. In all the years of working cattle, one is never too old to learn. There are good seminars and educational days that demonstrate good techniques that blend cattle and people in a produc- tive, working mdde. One day, I was watching a group of cattle being worked and had empathy with the individual and the cattle. As the producer tried to sort the cattle, one could see the change in attitude and approach. The producer became the ogre and the cattle the beasts. The process was not working: The longer the process went on, the more stressed the cattle became and themore frus- trated the producer became. In a reactive mode, the ogre decides to out-muscle the beast. When that does not work, the ogre decides to em- ploy more force to overcome the beast. Yes, eventually the beast will succumb and the ogre can proclaim victory, but at what price? All that did not have to happen if one simply would have decided to out- think the cattle before the day started. Moreover, if cattle work days are not going as well as one would like, a se- rious evaluation of the working facili- ties may be in order. Even with good planning and a proactive approach to the day, if inad- equate chutes, panels, fences, gates and all the other required aspects of a work- ing facility are not present, the day will not go well. Cattle operations need to invest in working cattle equ!pment. What is the goal at the engl? No blunt force trauma, period. May you find all your ear tags.
