During the regular Valley City City Commission meeting Monday, Ryan Mathias, owner of the NuBar in Valley City, presented the commission with his plans to build a windbreak smoke shelter to accommodate his smoking customers when a new law takes place Thursday.
During the regular November election, North Dakota voters approved a smoking ban that would prohibit smoking in all indoor workplaces and 20 feet from any door.
Editor's note: The story that ran in Wednesday's paper incorrectly identified the commissioners that were sworn in at Tuesday's meeting. This article has been updated with the correct names.
Two newly re-elected county commissioners, Cindy Schwehr and John Froelich, were sworn in during the regular meeting of the Barnes County Commissioners on Tuesday.

VCHS Wrestling takes 6th in Jamestown
The Valley City High School wrestling team took sixth at the Knights of Columbus tournament over the weekend in Jamestown.
The Hi-Liners had seven wrestlers finish in the top four of their division, including three who wrestled in the championship match.
Zach Doty won the championship at 170 pounds, pinning Darren Crissler in 3:45. Shane Undem (160) and Jaiden Opatz (195) both lost in the championship matches at their divisions, taking second place.
As the LaMoure/Litchville-Marion boys basketball team worked its offense in the first half of Monday's 56-54 win over Maple Valley, the final result seemed relatively simple.
Pass the ball, set a few picks, wait for a defender to fall off his cover, then take advantage of the hole with a quick cut into the lane for a layup.
"That happens when the offense is moving like its supposed to be," LLM coach Darren Thielges said. "The first half, we were fresh, so we were making good cuts."

The Christmas story, which is the story of the birth of Jesus Christ as told in the book of Matthew from the Bible, has been told in a variety of ways throughout many cultures and generations.
The Nazarene Church in Valley City is telling the story through the eighth annual âJourney Through Christmasâ Dec. 13 and 14 from 7-9 p.m.
The event depicts the Christmas story in six scenes with 30 costumed characters and live animals.
âIt is called âJourney Through Christmasâ because it is a drive-through experience,â the church said in an email.

FARGO â As the North Dakota State and South Dakota State University football teams took the field for their NCAA FBS second round playoff game Saturday, all expectations were a close one.
Interstate rivalry? Check. Pockets of the stadium lined with loud crowds from either school? Check. When the teams met up just a few weeks ago at Gate City Bank Field at the Fargodome, the game was decided by a field goal.
But in the rematch, the visiting Jackrabbits seemed to left their lucky foot, or feet, at home.
The holiday season is well underway, and that means people are spending more time shopping. Dacotah Bank in Valley City hopes people in the area will support their local economy by buying their holiday gifts at stores in Valley City.
Dacotah Bank is teaming up with the Valley City Area Chamber of Commerce again this year for their campaign to push people to shop locally during the holiday season.
The campaign, which is now called â12 Days of Christmas,â starts Dec. 6 and is held every business day thereafter leading up to Christmas.
