Some monsters may soon be returning to local waters.
The National Fish Hatchery near Valley City is in the process of relaunching the stateâ€™s muskie (muskellunge) program. Muskies are the largest member of the pike family, typically growing from 30 to 50 inches long.
â€śThe rebuilding of that program is in its infancy,â€ť said fish hatchery director Kurt Eversman.
Owie! If youâ€™ve seen me at all this week you may have heard me say that word.
About a week and a half ago I began noticing it more than before. Though I noticed it before â€“ I did that thing Iâ€™ve made myself so good at. I can justify most any pain in my body.
Pain is such a subjective thing. I can breathe my way through most anything and use my mind to forget about it for a minute. If I have a raging headache and squeeze my ear lobe my headache pain disappears for a spell because then my ear is taking up all the pain receptors. Just like I tease my cat â€“ I tease my pain.
Residents at Valley Cityâ€™s Open Door Center have been making Pride of Dakota products since the beginning of this year, and the demand for them just keeps increasing.
In January, the ODC purchased the Thunderbird Ranch Gourmet Foods line and moved it from a small western North Dakota town called Ray to Valley City.
ODC residents produce 29 Pride of Dakota food products that are sold online, at various Pride of Dakota shows, and in various retailers across the Midwest as well as in the Eagleâ€™s Nest Bookstore.

As the stands emptied Thursday night at Hanna Field, things were seemingly quiet inside the stadium. But in the parking lot, there was a hint of celebration as fans honked their horns and exchanged high fives before driving off for the night. It wasn't without reason.
With a 40-14 win over Central Cass, the Valley City High School team clinched its return to the Class AA state playoffs for the first time since 2010.
It was a win in which Valley City fell behind on the opening drive, but got ahead late in the first quarter and never let up.
