Travel Alert Extended Statewide

November 2, 2012

The North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT) and the North Dakota Highway Patrol (NDHP) have extended the Travel Alert for all areas of North Dakota, excluding the south west portion of the state due to areas of reduced visibility and slush and snow covered roadways. Wet roadways have the potential to turn into ice as the temperatures drop this evening. The Travel Alert remains in effect until Saturday morning for areas surrounding the cities of Williston, Minot, Bismarck, Jamestown, Valley City, Devils Lake, Grand Forks, and Fargo.

Blonde on the Prairie: Constants Are Comforting

November 2, 2012

It used to be a front porch overlooking a little thicket of trees. Back in the day it must have been a pleasant place to hang a hat and rock in a rocker the whole day away. I’m guessing a ma and a pa had a conversation or two right there on the porch. I could imagine children opening and slamming the door as they popped in and out for lemonade and fresh baked pie. Maybe they hooked up a radio and listened to Bing, Frank and Dean Martin crooning true love tunes. Most likely the folks would watch wildlife like deer and fox and muskrats appear right there outside the five windows.

Churches Offer Food Baskets for Thanksgiving

November 2, 2012

Area churches are teaming up with Barnes County Social Services again this year to offer Thanksgiving food baskets to the needy.

Katie Pommerer, human service aide for Barnes County Social Services, said four churches are involved in the combined effort: Our Savior’s Lutheran Church, Trinity Lutheran Church, Faith Lutheran Church and Grace Free Lutheran Church.

Pommerer said each church involved offers to handle a certain amount of baskets and Barnes County Social Services picks up the rest.
