A letter from Colton Keightley,
“My name is Colton Keightley. I am from Willamina, a very small town in Oregon and I am 20 years old. I consider myself somewhat of a unique individual, as I have Cerebral Palsy. Regardless, I do not let this hold me back from living my life to the fullest.”

Rolf Sletten, the first ever Bully Spirit Award recipient, presented the prestigious award to the third recipients, Jim and Joanne Kack.
Rolf’s recognition speech of the outstanding Bully Spirit Jim and Joanne have shown over the years follows.
Jim and Joanne, in this world there are people who give and there are people who take.
Some people are scared to death that they might give more than they get and consequently, they almost never give anything of themselves, not of their time, their talents, or their money. If on rare occasion, they do give something of themselves, and are not generously and immediately rewarded, they feel that life is unfair, and they are victims cheated out of something they had coming. I think, “What’s in it for me” is a pretty common attitude. Those are words to live by for too many people.
On the other hand, we have people who give willingly, cheerfully, and generously wonderful people. People with soul and conscience who are not afraid to be generous, people who want to give back to other people and to the community. They are people who don’t worry that they might be giving more than they get.
What people are saying
How important is it that Medora is open this year? We asked some of our visitors that very question. Here’s what they had to say.Rick and Andrea Winkjer Collin, Bismarck:
“It’s a big deal to have Medora open. It gives us some reassurance, which is really important. So many places have closed. The continuity is more important than ever, given all the distractions we’ve faced this year.”
