Blonde on the Prairie: Going From No Where to Now Here

August 10, 2012

They appear. When they do they don’t yet have names. I don’t conjure them up and never do I expect them. Like I said-they just appear out of nowhere.

Nowhere sounds like a lonely place. Just saying the word makes me feel lost and alone. Try it. You say it. ‘Nowhere.” How did that make you feel? This past week I was going nowhere and I was going there fast.
That husband and I didn’t really have any plans. We were chomping at the bit to do something but we didn’t know where to do it let alone what to do. Doing nothing nowhere is a double negative and we were on our way to both.

Hatchery Stocks Fishing Pond

August 10, 2012

Employees and volunteers at the Valley City National Fish Hatchery were busy Wednesday stocking a recreational fishing pond for youth with breeder black crappies, readying the fishing hole for use.

Noah Kvilang, 15, a student at Valley City High School, was dipping nets full of the young adult fish out of a tank on a trailer towed by a pickup truck and emptying them into the pond.

Kvilang said he helped out earlier this summer in the Youth Conservation Corps, and decided to continue helping as a volunteer.

Interim Auditor Appointed

August 10, 2012

Barnes County Deputy Auditor Julie Mindt was selected Tuesday by the Barnes County Commission to temporarily fill the role of resigning County Auditor Ed McGough. McGough officially vacated his seat on Wednesday.

The former auditor missed most of 2011 due to ongoing health problems, which he cited as his reason for leaving now.

Mindt said she doesn’t know how long she’ll be interim auditor.
“I’m hoping for a lot of support,” she said Thursday.
