The Philip chapter of Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) is again sponsoring the community Maggie Grace Angel Tree.

Members of FCCLA set-up and decorated the Angel Tree after school on December 1. Due to the plumbing construction in the Haakon County Courthouse, the Angel Tree is on display at the First National Bank in Philip.

"The turn around time to pick up the gifts is December 15," urged Brigitte Brucklacher, FCCLA advisor.

Work experience outside the classroom

Work isn’t always work ... Students are figuring out through the School to Work program that work can be fun as well as a valuable educational experience. Blake Lobdell is working at Hansen’s Hide and Fur.

(This is the second in a series featuring this year's Internship program students.)

This week's featured student is Blake Lobdell who works alongside Marty Hansen at his business, Hansen's Hide and Fur.

Hansen said, "I am involved in the School to Work program because I would've liked to have had the opportunity when I was in school to get out and try something new."

Deer season brings long hours for Hansen, so Lobdell is a big help to him even if it is only for one hour every day.


Holman reaches 10 years of local medical service

In many rural communities, finding and keeping a good doctor is a big challenge. Not so in Philip, where Dr. David Holman has been practicing family medicine for over ten years.

"Recruiting doctors to small towns is tough," said Kent Olson, Administrator of Philip Health Services. "We are thrilled to have a doctor like Dave Holman."

According to the federal Office of Rural Health, only about ten percent of physicians practice in rural United States, although nearly one quarter of the population lives in these areas.
