Congratulations to our October Students of the Month
at Prairie Jr./Sr. High School. Pictured from left are Alexis Shears, high
school; Cole Martin, junior high and Terran Vanator, high School. Alexis
is a respectful and hardworking student who never complains. She
takes the most rigorous courses offered and excels. Cole is studious, hard
working and does the necessary work to be a top notch student in the classroom. One
of Terran’s best attributes is his willingness to always help those in
need. Anytime teachers need assistance he is the first to step up
and offer help. Photo provided by Carrie Nygaard. Click on each photo for

Some of the new signage that was installed last week
at the former Nuxoll Shell Service. Nuxoll Shell was started in 1929 by
Al Nuxoll, uncle of Don Nuxoll who sold the business effective Nov. 1.
Don’s parents Bill and Viola bought the business in 1948 with partner Jack
Whitley and took over sole ownership in 1951. Don bought the business from
his father in 1982. 87 years of Nuxoll family ownership is topped only
by the Hoene family owning Hoene Hardware. Shown below is an early day
photo of Nuxoll Shell with Al Nuxoll at left in front of the car being
serviced over the grease pit. That building was farther forward on the
lot than the current building, about where the gas pumps are now. Photo

Summit Academy's students and guests participated
in a Holy-ween presentation and party on Wednesday, November 2nd.
The students, all dressed as saints of their choice, learned about four
saints while rotating between stations. Many stations had mazes for the
students to crawl through before finding the saint. Saint skits were
put on at each station by high school students. St. Francis of Assisi
was found praying in the woods with his animals and nature sounds all around.
St. Andrew Kim Taegon was represented by Korean exchange student Young-min
Sim. St. Andrew's story was presented in Korean, with his 'guardian
angel' translating into English for the children to understand. Students
also learned about St. Therese of Lisieux and St. Gonsalo Garcia.
After the saint presentations all the students were admitted to 'heaven'
where a litany was prayed for all the saints represented in costume. The
afternoon ended as every young child imagines heaven to be: all-you-can-eat
ice cream sundaes with ALL the toppings. Photo provided by Summit Academy.
