SEE BANG, PAgE A2 Some help with choosing a career Williston State College offering career days to local students By LArry GriffiN WiLLiSTON HErALD For many high school students, choosing a career path isn't easy. Who knows what they want to do that young? Fortunately, Williston State College has the an- swer: a set of career build- ing days, each one centered around a different type of oilfield job. On March 13, a welding session will be held, to "teach the basic skills of cutting and welding metals with hands-on torch, plasma and arc welding," a press re- lease from the college says. On March 12, 14 and 26, in- terested students can attend the diesel session and learn about the basics of diesel engines and components of modern trucking and equip- ment. On April 23, students can attend a session on petro- leum production, where they can learn the basic skills for petroleum pump- ing operations and program- mable logic control systems. All of the classes are tai- lored to jobs where there is a high demand and that offer high pay. "Today's student is faced with a lot of opportunities and decisions; many are trying to decide whether or not they should go to school or go into the workforce," said Brian Rencher, WSC transportation and energy coordinator. "Even though A love story 46 years in the making Photo by Larry Griffin/Williston Herald A true love story ron and Jan Thue were crowned King and Queen of Bethel Lutheran Nursing Home at a Valentine's Day celebration. Married for 46 years, they value their trust and faithfulness to one another. By LArry GriffiN WiLLiSTON HErALD For 46 years, Ron and Jan Thue have lived a love story. After four decades togeth- er, the Thues were crowned king and queen of the Bethel Lutheran Valentine's Day celebration. After decades of mar- riage, their opinions on relationships and love have the weight of experience on their side. On what kept them to- gether, Jan said it was "love, respect and faithfulness of marriage." "Marriage is forever," she said. "Or as long as you're on this Earth. You have to have respect for one another. It is a gift from God." Ron's opinion on what made their marriage last was a little bit different. "It was her tenacity," he said, provoking a laugh from Jan. Since their marriage in 1967, the Thues lived in Williston — through two oil booms. The city they remembered was a "quiet, small, clean town," where people knew one another and didn't have to lock their cars or homes. Jan's advice for people getting married now is to put the other person's feel- ings first and enjoy the same things. "If you don't enjoy the same things, make an effort to enjoy them," Jan said. "Have a common love of God. Go to church together." Most importantly, she said, married couples should respect one another. After such a long time married, Jan has learned that being faithful and hon- est are values worth keep- ing. Ron's lesson, while more succinct, was along the same lines: "One girlfriend is enough." Love, respect, faithfulness key to successful marriage By LArry GriffiN WiLLiSTON HErALD The Williston Police De- partment is on the lookout for a missing person.
