One night in 1968, James F. Ball, 75, of Brookings,  had a vivid dream.

Upon awakening, he knew God wanted him to go to Africa.

Shortly thereafter, he found himself with little money but big hopes sailing aboard a freighter to Ghana along with his wife Patricia and their three little children.

“Diana was 3, James was 5 and Cheryl was 6 1/2. Our youngest, Becky, was born in Ghana,” Ball said.

There’s a story in the Bible about a rich young man who asks Jesus what he has to do to gain eternal life.

Jesus tells him to obey the commandments. The man says he already does that, and wants to know if there’s anything else.

“Go,” Jesus says, “sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you’ll have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”

A lot of people have talked about building a dog park, but it took a 16-year-old Boy Scout to actually get it done – with a little help from his friends.

OPRD Park Ranger Austin Bertelson needed some willing volunteers to install a pet exercise area at McVay Rock State Recreation Area.
