History is more than mere facts and dates memorized in the classroom. History comes alive when students are immersed in research. Such is the case for this year’s National History Day. Approximately 40 area students are using the 2018 theme of “Conflict and Compromise in History” on their research. They will reveal their findings during the first-ever Southwest Regional National History Day set from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursday, March 22 at the Dickinson National Guard Armory.
The day begins early at the Karsky Dairy, owned and operated by Dean and LeeAnn Karsky, of rural Dickinson. By 4 a.m., Dean is milking the first of 180 cows. Not long after, his daughter, Rachel Howie, arrives from Dickinson to help milk and feed the calves. After four hours of milking, Dean still has barns to clean, straw to lay down or feed to grind and distribute. He might be tied up with a cow that is having difficulty calving. Rachel heads back home. Dean takes a break at 10 a.m. to eat, and by 3 p.m., the four-hour milking routine starts all over again.
