A new group in Jamestown seeks to unite members of the community in prayer.
The Jamestown Community Prayer group is nondenominational and doesn’t require membership, church affiliation or even a dress code, organizers said. It’s just a way for concerned members of the community to speak to God together.
Organizers Greg and Mary Allen established the group to give the community an opportunity to pray about various issues and organizations in Jamestown like education, government and families. It’s not a political forum though, Greg said, but only quiet prayer and a way to ask God for help.
“Anything good can be improved upon,” he said, saying Jamestown is already a good place to live and raise a family.
Allen “Al” Jerome Larson, 70, Carrington, N.D., died Sunday, May 30, 2010, at his home under the care of Presentation Hospice following a battle with cancer.
Mr. Larson was born on July 12, 1939, in Nome, N.D., the son of Amund and Gertha (Thorstenson) Larson.
The Academic All State Team is comprised of more than 30 top students from Class A schools across the state of North Dakota.
The All-State Team includes: 8 Gold Team members, 7 Silver Team members and 17 Bronze Team members, and was selected based on ACT Scores, Grade Point Averages and school involvement.
The Minnesota Vikings had a league-high eight players named to the Pro Bowl.
Quarterback Brett Favre, running back Adrian Peterson, offensive guard Steve Hutchinson, defensive end Jared Allen and defensive tackle Kevin Williams are all returning to the Pro Bowl this year.
At this pace, Jared Allen will need a lot of more of those invisible lassos.
The enduring images of Minnesota’s recent victory over rival Green Bay are focused on Brett Favre, of course, from the improbability of the 19-year veteran quarterback wearing purple to Favre’s celebration of three touchdown passes against his old team.
Allen “Cutta” Strand, 75, Bowdon, N.D., died Thursday, Sept. 10, 2009, at Carrington Health Center, Carrington, N.D.
Mr. Strand was born Dec. 4, 1933, at Bowdon, the son of Henry and Ida (Hendrickson) Strand.
The Minnesota Vikings have signed third-round draft pick Asher Allen to a four-year contract.
The cornerback was the 86th overall selection out of Georgia. He also could help the Vikings as a return man on special teams. Allen ranks third on Georgia’s career list with 1,110 return yards.
