Kelly Dillon, one of the prose- cutors, questioned Moore about that statement. She showed him a copy of the Diocese of Bismarck’s Code of Conduct, which Moore signed. That document, along with another, advises that one person sitting on another’s lap is inappropriate, and that adults should never touch a student without other adults present. “I did acknowledge that,” Moore said. “To be honest I didn’t read it very closely,” he said. Dillon pushed him fur- cross-examination. “You acknowledge that you had students on your lap in gym class?” she asked. “Yes,” Moore said. “Did you limit that contact to when other adults were present?” she asked. “No, not necessarily,” Moore said. “Even though the code of con- duct says you should only have physical contact (with students) when other adults are present?” Dillon asked. Moore paused, then began to respond. Dillon cut him off. “But you didn’t read that part,” she said. Moore’s testimony took up all of Friday morning.

Beau, a husband, fa- ther, and hobby ranch- er on the windswept plains of North Dakota found a passion. “Al- though I am not a gui- tar player myself, I was instantly intrigued by this varied and unique Barret craft, and thus the journey began. While I spend my days in the oil fields outside Boom- town, USA, my nights and weekends are spent crafting Beau Theige Custom Guitars.” He was instantly intrigued by this varied and unique craft to create handmade guitars from discarded items such as cake pans, license plates, cigar boxes and more. If you want to get trendy, it’s called “up- cycling.” Each guitar is handcrafted, inspired by everyday utilitar- ian objects, antiques, or plain old trash. Half art, half junk, all gui— tar. “Let’s change the way you make music.” MonDak Heritage Center is open.Tues- day-Friday from 10-4 and Saturday from 1-4. Admission is free.
