The Valley City School District's major campaign to collect food for those in need begins Wednesday, albeit under a new name, â€śStuff The Truck.â€ť
Last year the effort went under the name â€śPack The HAC.â€ť The new name brings the effort full circle, said Cindy Waagen, director of Marketplace Foods.
â€śThat was our original name,â€ť when Marketplace Foods started the effort in 2000, Waagen said Wednesday.
The Valley City School District took over leadership in about 2005, Waagen said. â€śWhen it was done by Marketplace the schools were always involved,â€ť she said.
The Barnes County 911 system, or who will run it has been a weighty issue for city and county officials, but making the change from city to county control should not involve a lot of costs, according to County Commissioner Eldred Knutson.

Instead of walking door-to-door, ringing doorbells, area kids will have the opportunity to walk from car-to-car, looking at trunks in this year's trunk-or-treat.
Trunk-or-treat, held annually at the Nazarene Church in Valley City, is a "fun and safe event for the whole family," the Rev. JoAnn Stack said.
The event will be held Oct. 31 from 6-7:30 p.m. in the parking lot of the church.
Members of the Nazarene Church will decorate the trunks of their vehicles and hand out treats to kids. The free event is open to children of all ages and their families.
