If you would have asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up when I was 5 I would have told you I wanted to be a penguin breeder. It wasnâ€™t until I turned 17 that I knew for a fact I wanted to be the television weather girl. Now that Iâ€™m ripe and nearly 46 I have an insatiable desire to teach as much as I learn and I want to do it living.

Saturday, June 23 from 10 am to 12 noon the Farmers Market will celebrate National Dairy Month by having free samples of yogurt available for the first 200 people that come to the market. A variety of flavors will be available.
The Farmers Market is partnering with the Young Peopleâ€™s Healthy Heart Program at Mercy Hospital and the Midwest Dairy Council for this event, and will have many recipes for people to pick up that use yogurt.
The finishing touches are being applied to the new North Valley Bridge on County Road 21 north of Valley City, and the days are numbered for the old bridge.
â€śThe (new) bridge itself is about complete,â€ť said Barnes County Highway superintendent Kerry Johnson. â€śThey have some coating to put on the railing, abutments and piers and then remove the rest of the forms... I would say thereâ€™s less than a weekâ€™s worth of work on the actual bridge itself.â€ť
