The old Elks parking lot on Main Street in Valley City won't be developed immediately. During a special meeting of the Valley City City Commission on Tuesday, commissioners declined to make a motion to sell the property through open bidding.

However, the Valley Development Corporation has an agreement with the city to develop the property.

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.
