A4 Inside Today ird baseman Bethany Oster finds place on pitchers mound A love of doodling helped Ella Wallock in a statewide contest Miller is the third generation of grocery store owners Miller takes over Dyste's BY KAREN SPEIDEL A large Hereford steer replica has been on wheels in the parking lot of a Hankinson gro- cery store, an impressive billboard advertising a new owner taking over the former Dyste's Food Pride in Hankinson. The mobile statue is used by Miller's Fresh Foods at events, so was the per - fect means of announc- ing its ac- quisition of the Hankin- son grocery store. John and Julie Dyste had been in business with Dyste's Food Pride in Hankinson for 16 years and sold it to Jeff Miller, a third-gen - eration grocer, who took over March 28. Miller's grandparents started this path almost 90 years ago when Joe and Susan Miller opened a store in New Leipzig back in 1927 with an em - phasis on fresh perish- ables and full service. Miller continues in their footsteps today and now operates nine gro- cery stores across the state, which includes the Hankinson location, which is now Miller's Fresh Foods. He also op - erates stores in Mayville, his home base, Hatton, Northwood, Larimore, Cooperstown, New Rock- ford, Edgeley and Oakes. There have been a few changes noticeable up and down the aisles at Hankinson, including about 500 new items and the addition of smoke - house sausage products, made in the smokehouse kitchen at the New Rock- ford store, Miller said. There are 100 different varieties, quite an opera- tion, he said, including sausage, jerky, summer sausage, homemade brat- wurst, his father's recipe, and a potato sausage, SEE GROCERY, PAGE A8 INSIDE WHO DO YOU THINK WILL BE THE NEXT PRESIDENT? Lidgerwood residents weigh in on the question about who they think will be the next pres- ident. Donald Trump is now the front runner for Republicans, while Hillary Clinton leads the polls for the Democrats. — page A3 CHILI COOK OFF Rosholt, South Dakota, is gearing up for its annual 'Proud & Alive Cook-off.' Planners are looking for potential participants to pre-register for this event, which will be separated into different categories such as best chili and judged dessert competitions. — page A5 Andrew Gaukler of Lidgerwood thinks that Hillary Clinton will win the 2016 presidential elec - tion. He doesn't think she is the best choice of president. 'She's had her chance eight years ago,' he said. Gauk - ler isn't sure the Republican front runner is the best choice either be- cause of his offen- sive statements. KAREN SPEIDEL NEWS-MONITOR Unsung Editor's Note: This month's Point of View looks at the 'Unsung Heroes' within our communities, ones who have a tremen - dous impact on our cities, while steering away from the spotlight. BY CARRIE MCDERMOTT Attend almost any event around the Twin Towns and you're likely to run into Mary Ann Conrad, a petite silver- haired, blue-eyed wom - an who has a warm smile for everyone she meets. The Brecken- ridge, Minnesota, native is involved in a number of organizations and clubs and always seems to be volunteering for one event or another. A retired teacher, she said she has to stay busy. It's in her DNA. "I'm just one of those people. I guess I'm a high-energy person," she said. Mary Ann's busy cal - endar would challenge even the most organized person, but she doesn't feel overwhelmed. She knows the meeting dates and times for every group she's involved with. In the last week she attended a special wom - en's church function in Battle Lake, Minnesota, attended the Ladies Con- servation Night, deco- rated for the DREAMS auction at North Dakota State College of Science and attended four fu- nerals. She also volun- teers weekly at the Red Door Art Gallery where she's a board member and walks her dog, Mia, twice a day. That's just the tip of the iceberg. She delivers Meals on Wheels twice weekly for three organi - zations, is a member of Breckenridge Woman's Study Club, is the direc- tor and program chair of Heroes CARRIE MCDERMOTT | NEWS-MONITOR If there is an event in the Twin Towns Area, you'll proba- bly see Mary Ann Conrad with a bright smile volunteering some time at it.
