Pumpkin Patch Open for Weekend

September 25, 2013

Those looking for the fruit of fall can head out to the Wittenberg Pumpkin Patch northeast of Valley City this weekend. Shawn and Kim Wittenberg opened the patch on their farm 15 years ago. Visitors have the opportunity to pick out their very own pumpkins, squash, gords and Indian corn in the scenic area. Pumpkins are either $4 or $5, and the price of everything else varies.
Kim said she decided to open the patch after visiting Papa's Pumpkin Patch in Bismarck when her children were younger. She said hers is much smaller, but this has been her best year so far.

Local Woman Shows Native Pride

September 25, 2013

Amanda Myhre spent her life straddling two cultures. She was never considered white, even though she was raised in the white world, yet she was never considered Native American either. With brown skin and dark hair and eyes, she wasn't recognized for her Norwegian ancestry like many of the kids she grew up with in Enderlin, but having not grown up at the Standing Rock Reservation where she was born, she never felt like she would fit in there either.
