March 8, 2012

Esther Keeling was one of the first people in Valley City to be tested by computer for her General Educational Development certification Wednesday when the new program was unveiled at Valley City’s Sheyenne Valley Career and Technical Center.

Keeling “told me it was simple, fast and easy,” after taking the computerized test, said Allison Jennings, program manager for GED Testing Service based in Washington, D.C.

“You should have seen the look in Esther’s face when she saw she passed,” said center director Jeff Bopp.

Cleone Genre and Larry Junker of Valley City danced their socks off at Senior Dance Day Wednesday. “Having fun? You bet,” said Junker of the polka-themed music of Marv and the Moonlighters. “We like ‘em all, but we do prefer a good two-step.”

March 8, 2012

Lunch was served at the annual North Dakota Winter Show Tasting Bee on Wednesday at the National Guard Armory on Winter Show Road.

With everything costing only a quarter, the line for change stretched out the door shortly after the two-hour event opened at 11 a.m.

“We had 50 rolls of quarters; we have one roll left but a lot of people bring their own,” said Marge Bessette of the NDWS Women’s Division, which puts the Tasting Bee together.

While hundreds turned out for the popular event, Bessette said it is still not the largest affair the division handles.
