The show is designed to be educational and to provide information about riding vacation loca- tions. Some of the riders have been making the entire trip, while others join the group for a week or two. The group planned a two-day respite in Medora. The plans included attending the Medora Musical, with some of the. riders going across the amphitheatre's stage at one of the musical's per- formances. "This is just" a beautiful area. Most of us haven't been here before," said Esther Vance, a rider from Ohio. Vance said that for the most part the ride has gone well, except for encountering a lot of rain in South Dakota, and a Nebraska hailstorm. Route (Continued on Page 8) By Richard Volesky " Editor/Reporter BELFIELD'- The Belfieid School District expects to receive about $251,000 through the fed- eral American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). ARRA, also known as the eco- nomic stimulus package, pro- vides about $100 billion for edu- cation nationwide. Uses of the funds include work-study pro- grams, improvements in student achievement and improvements in school facilities. Belfield Superintendent Darrel Remington said $51,269 is expected for the school's Title I program, which includes remedi- al learning in areas such as read- ing and math. The money can be used for salaries, computers, equipment, supplies and profes- sional development of staff. Remington said there are no plans to use the funding for additional staff. The additional $200,000 is to be sent to the district in incre- ments and would be used over the next two years. This funding can't be used for new construc- tion, but can have uses such as improving the plumbing system, other types of renovation and upkeep, supplies and for technol- ogy, said Remington. Additional funding is expected for special education, but the school district hasn't yet received specifics about that type of fund- ing. Fun at the Fair While trying to get through the Mud Run track at the Golden Valley County Fair on Saturday, Aug. 22, was the focus of the event, getting unstuck was also one of the tasks of the day.
