If you‚Äôre a girl living on the prairie, out of all of the numbers you could know, that‚Äôs the number you need to know. The number rings up the Barnes Country Sheriff‚Äôs office.
There are no losers in Valley City‚Äôs Hunger Free North Dakota Garden Project.
Low-income residents get fresh local fruit and vegetables for their tables, and gardeners with an excess of produce have an appreciative recipient for the surplus.
Ellen Bjelland of the Barnes County Extension office said Thursday the project starts Monday, July 23.
City and Barnes county officials met with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Thursday to talk about flooding issues in Valley City and along the Sheyenne River Valley.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' Mississippi Valley Division Commander Maj. Gen. John Peabody and St. Paul District Commander Col. Michael Price visited a number of North Dakota communities this week, and Valley City was their last stop.
Entering Thursday's double header with Harwood, the Valley City Post 60 American Legion baseball team wasn't too concerned about getting the sweep.
Instead, the team was focused solely on the first game, a 14-4 win in five innings that clinched the No.3 seed in next week's Section 1 tournament in Lidgerwood.
"We kind of had to win and stay out of Wahpeton's bracket," said Valley City infielder Josh Gilbertson.
It was a victory that kept the team from dwelling on a 9-0 no-hit loss in the second game, which largely used the team's reserves.
