Stevens County won't be selling the Forty Acre Pit yet to give some local residents a chance to form a plan to convert the unused pit into an off highway vehicle park.

Charles O'Keefe, who originally proposed a possible OHV park at the March 21 county meeting, was back at the April 4 meeting to request time to work with the West Central Trailblazers, a snowmobile club, and other OHV park supporters to develop a park plan.

Pre-K: In Prek this week, we learned all about the letter Uu and the number 17. To really learn the letter, we did several different activities having to do with the letter U. We made uniform hats, painted rain on umbrellas, made underwater sea creatures, and painted a unique person because God made each of us unique. The class favorite was making the house from the movie Up. Our fingerprints looked like the balloons the carried the house around the world. It was a very fun and fast week!
