VAIDER WEEII SIDNEY HERALD r When people look at Sidney High School junior Kaiden Cline’s wrestling career, they can see that hard work truly pays off. Cline didn’t place at the state meet as a fresh: man in the losmund weight class. He spent the following oftiseason lifting weights, working out and attending wres- tling camps. The result was a state champion- ship at the weight class last February. “He had to eat like crazy to hit 100 pounds. He was really small," Sidney Coach Guy Melby said of Cline’s freshman season. Cline added, “I was a lot bigger my sophomore year. I lifted every day during theer and went to a lot of camps.” Melby said Cline’s im- provement wasn’t only on the physical side. “He near" v tenors hard worker and pro. better. Sponsored By like getting teammates and became way mentally tougher. The freshman year can be tough on kids.” After all that hard work and dedication, Cline is now one of the standouts on Sidney’s powerhouse wrestling team. “He’s done everything we ’ve asked him to do and more. He’s a very coachable kid,” Melby said. “He’s a very, very hard worker" Cline said he gained a lot of confidence last year when he defeated the then top-ranked wrestler in the state dur— ing the Havre dual meet. “That’s when I real~ ized I had a chance,” said Cline, the son of Chris and Sara Burnison. Cline went on to defeat Lewistown’s Wyatt Mager, 18,-,4, in the cham- pionship match at the state metal. This year, he is cur- rently ranked second in the state at 113 pounds.

Only one “deposit” will be necessary per family \ Sidney High School student Liliana BY llch SIMONSON DAKOTA EDGE OU‘lllGORS With a 2—year—old and a just-turned-S-year— old running my house now, things go missing, particularly the remote lovingly named “Alexa” that connects to the Amazon-based lifeline of 22-minutes of peace and quiet in the form of Daniel Tiger’s Neighbor- hood, which for those of my without kids is an animated spin on the Mr. Rogers Neighborhood we all recall. She’s fallen through the couch, been set on top of the microwave, left in a sweatpants pocket, and even made her way onto the ice in my jacket in recent weeks. I’d like to blame the boys, but her fre— quent disappearances are as much my fault as theirs. However, thanks to one night’s search for our missing Alexa, I was transported back in time and made whole with something that I had thought had been lost to the ages. As we searched the cracks and crevices of the living room fun niture one evening, my wife reached deep under the arm of the old blue fabric La-Z-Boy recliner and pulled out a black, oblong item and asked me what it was. Suddenly, it was as if my life rewound to a decade before and count- less adventures on the ice and open water as she held the black fabric of an old Gerber belt sheath in the air. In her hand was my trusty sidearm from days back home, long before our wedding and a blur of on-ice adven- tunes a few years after it and a move to north— eastern Minnesota. The countless white bass the needlenose pliers freed from tiny jigs on August evenings on Lake Ashtabula and bluegills sent home to the shal. lows of Big Detroit Lake with a simple twist in warming spring we- ters flashed and flipped before the replay in my memory. It’s fine—point precision extracted the tiny treble hooks on small spoons from slab crappies on Ely Lake, and helped me Or" 0”" The extra-long, fine'point needlenose pliers on the author’s lost Gerber along with a set of fishing-related accessories — were sorely missed for many years, until a search for a lost remote control turned into a reunion with a favorite angling tool. release my first steel- head on the north shore of Lake Superior. Slowly wrapping my hand around the soft black easel felt the hard steel underneath and looked up at her in awe as the crackle of the Velcro gave way. Somewhere between our second move and third one seven years ago, the multitool had vanished in the way so many other pliers do. but its maddening disappear- ance and absence was felt greatly Many substitutes attempted to fill the void, but this was a Gerber Fisherman 600, Model 07572, which I had purchased with saved up tip money from my time working tables on a diner just off Main Street in my hometown. While I had feared that it found its resting place the dark dampness of the bottom of some boat ~ or worse, a lake some.- where along the way I couldn’t quite place that terrible moment in my memory. Over the years, I made do with a combi- nation of knives, hook Sharpeners, scissors , pl 1- ers and other tools that all had once been found in the implement I had lost, and on their own, paled in comparison. .I slid the multitool out of its case and into my palm, and felt as if I was shaking hands with an old friend as I wrapped my fingers around it. With a snap of my wrist, the pliers popped out from the storage space in the handle with a click as crisp as the very first time. I inspected the tool from tip to butt and pulled out each acces- sory from the coarse- and—fine hook sharpener, kn ife and scissors to the screwdrivers and tweezer. It was all in such pris- tine shape and brought back such fond fishing memories I was at a loss for words. I then wondered why, after all these years, I hadn’t just bought a replacement, and with a little searching I figured out that part of the mystery of the missing multitool as well. Gerber had discon- tinued the 07572 and its successor, the Flik Fish, nearly a decade ago. The ones I found on eBay and other dim corners of the internet were selling for more than $200. My jaw dropped and I picked the pliers up off the desk, tucked it back in the sheath and stashed it in my lockable drawer below the photos of a few fish it may have once freed; becoming even more nervous after the reunion and online appraisal about taking it out our outdoors.
