Colette Jenson, the owner of Valley City's Circle of Friends Preschool and Childcare, said Wednesday standards for pre-kindergarten education are important and she plans to find out exactly what they are and receive training on them.

Buffalo-based musician Cynthia Berget will perform Saturday at the Sheyenne Riverbend Farm Fall Festival. The musician and author said she'd be at the festival from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., performing as a "one woman band," under the title "Original Cyn," also known as "Cynthia Musical Show."
Sheyenne Riverbend Farm is located three miles south of Interstate 94, county road 21 on exit 292.
In addition to the keyboard, Berget plans to play other instruments, including cymbals, bongos, cowbell and a make-shift bass drum, fashioned from an old suitcase and bass drum pedal.

City Leaders Decline to Sell Property

September 26, 2013

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.
According to Valley City City Commissioner Mary Lee Nielson, the consensus of the commission at this time is to leave the lot as-is. The city needs a parking lot for community events like Rally in the Valley, she said.
However, the Valley Development Corporation has an agreement with the city to develop the property.
