He was born two hundred years before his time, but he faced the world in a way that only modern people can imagine. Orie, named Orson Amos, was born in Old Westport, into a very poor family. Influenced by traders and trappers who came into his father's store along the Missouri River, Orie met all problems and all events in his own forthright manner.
As the West expanded, he made his way across the continent, at one time serving as a cook for gold miners in South Dakota. He endured floods, Indian uprisings, economic failures, and disappointment in romance, and he handled it all, despite his lack of education and money. And with all of life's obstacles, Orie never lamented his fate and never complained. He was too occupied looking for solutions. In his own vigorous, creative way, he always succeeded.
Read Orie! You may end up thinking you were born too late.The Carrington Public Library got a face-lift over the summer.
Thanks to several generous donations and a very successful capital improvement campaign, the library completed all of its exterior renovations. The outside of the library was repainted and some trim was replaced. The front sidewalk was rebuilt to allow handicap access. The newly installed automatic doors will be a great asset for people who need assistance coming and going at the library.
The Carrington Public Library Foundation would like to thank Hershberger Construction for donating the labor on this project.
The public is invited to tour the facility on Tuesday, October 7 at 7:00 p.m. Representatives from Hershberger Construction and the Library Foundation will be available to answer your questions.
