New road across the water
Riley Bros. construction is building a new road across the water which will become ND 19. The new road will extend ND 19 west across Devils Lake to meet new US 281 which is being constructed west of Minnewaukan. This photo looking west was taken from the junction of US 281 and ND 19 three miles north of Minnewaukan. One can see trucks and dust on the new roadbed about a quarter mile across the water. The pile of rocks in the lake in the center of the photo once protected Great River Energy’s highline, which has been moved.

Four from Maddock in "Fiddler on the Roof"
Peter Foss and Lanny, Lisa and Dylan Faleide of Maddock are appearing in this summer’s musical production of "Fiddler on the Roof" at the historic Ft. Totten Little Theatre. Shows run Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday every week in July beginning July 6 starting each night at 7:30 p.m.
except for the Sunday, July 31 performance, which is at 2 p.m. Ticket information is available by calling 662-8888 for seats.
Lanny Faleide and Peter Foss are reprising the roles they played in the
1994 Maddock Prairie Players’ production of "Fiddler" as lead character Tevye and the radical student, Perchik, respectively. Lisa Faleide plays Golde, Tevye’s wife, in the Little Theatre production and Dylan is a son/villager. Lisa was director of the Prairie Players’ production and mimed the part of the fiddler and 9-year-old Dylan was still a gleam in his parents’ eyes. Many from the Maddock area took part in that 1994 production of "Fiddler."
"Fiddler on the Roof" is the story of the poor dairyman, Tevye, trying to scratch out a living in the early 1900’s in a Russian Jewish settlement.
Russia is on the brink of revolution and the musical depicts the struggles this brings to Tevye and his fellow villagers. More importantly, though, the musical shows the difficulty Tevye and his family have adjusting their traditional ways and devotion to God to a changing world. It is a musical full of pathos, good humor and humanity suitable for the whole family.
