Leevers Joins Others in Food Drive

November 14, 2012

Leevers Foods is currently running a “stuff a truck” promotion, which started Nov. 5 and lasts through Nov. 25.

The promotion is an effort to collect nonperishable food for the Barnes County Food Pantry.

Rick Idland, general manager, said, “This is such a caring community, and there’s so much need out there.”

“I know everyone is doing their parts,” he said, citing the Valley City Parks and Recreation’s food drive at Ruckus at the Rec along with local car dealers’ “stuff the trunk” promotions.

Salvation Army Sets $32K Goal

November 14, 2012

Valley City’s annual Salvation Army begins its 2012 bell-ringing campaign Friday, Nov. 23, the day after Thanksgiving.

The mission goal of $32,000 is $10,000 greater than last year’s goal, a result of tremendous success last year combined with great need, said Isensee, the Barnes County Salvation Army chairman.

Last year the campaign raised double its goal of $22,000.

The Salvation Army is a Christian organization started in 1852 in England by William Booth and brought to the U.S. in 1880.

Official in Hit-and-Run Accident

November 14, 2012

A Valley City city official was charged with misdemeanor duty upon striking an unattended vehicle last month.

The official was coming onto Sixth Street NE in Valley City near the intersection of Chautauqua Boulevard, and encountered a large city truck approaching from the opposite direction. The official moved to the right and hit a parked car. After inspecting both cars, the official decided the damage was minimal, and went on. Presumably, said the official, the truck driver called the police.
