They filed into the Oliver County Courthouse meeting room wearing suits, dress clothes and overalls. They came from out of town, courthouse offices and the shop. They all came to congratulate Francis Pulver, Oliver County Road Supervisor, for his 23 years of service to the county and community.

Barb Fleming, Oliver County auditor, organized a surprise retirement party for Pulver Dec. 4 inviting friends, associates and county employees.

The commission presented Pulver with a pen in an engraved case. Kadrmas, Lee and Jackson Engineering and General Equipment gave him gifts such as a jacket, cooler and lawn chair. He also received many cards from well wishers.

"Now you can sit beside the road and watch the road crew work," joked Mike Schneider, a long-time friend from Kadrmas, Lee and Jackson.

"The commission appreciates the work Francis (Pulver) has done for 23 years as a commissioner, blade man and road supervisor," said Dwaine Helmers, Oliver County Commission Chairman.

"The county appreciates his many years of dedication," Oliver County Commissioner Lee Husfloen added.
