LAKE ASHTABULA, N.D. â€“ Several dozen people looked quizzically to the sky on Saturday as a small airplane, flying very low, coasted over the lakeâ€™s landings and campgrounds. The plane was just another fiber in a slowly unraveling rope that is tying together a very unusual case in Valley City.
Amber Marcia Glatt, a 22-year-old Valley City State University student, was reported missing at 10:10 p.m., July 4, by her boyfriend Andy Mushet.
It happened again this week. That thing the moon does. It gets plump and full. That big, protective moon sat perched shining life onto the dark, provocative night. I sat under it looking up wondering whatâ€™s itâ€™s like shining light onto the dark, provocative night from way up there. At that point I smiled not just at the moon protecting me â€“but at eternity. Iâ€™m certain that plump, golden moon disappeared until next time knowing it had affected me so.
A total of 37 Valley City seventh and eighth-graders and parents went on this yearâ€™s Washington, D.C. Tour, May 29 through June 1, said Mike Watterson, program director for the past 20 years.

Watterson said the tour was arranged through World Strides Tours of Charlottesville, Va.
Talks are underway to immortalize a Barnes County nurse with a scholarship at Valley City State University in her name.
Erma Overby passed away on June 4 at age 87. At a regular meeting of the Valley City-Barnes County Health District Board, board member Sharon Buhr called her â€śa champion of public healthâ€ť and said the City-County Health District should honor her with a scholarship.
â€śShe was so incredible in terms of bringing Barnes County into the common era for public health,â€ť Burh said.
