County Unsure of Costs for Changes to 911

October 25, 2012

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.

October 25, 2012

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.

Feir and Wit: Upcoming Election Causing Heat

October 22, 2012

With the upcoming election, things are getting heated – even on social networking sites. Tweets, statuses and every other kind of post are filled with sarcasm, support and opposition.

There are three parties you may belong to on these sites; Republican, Democrat or the Annoyed Indifferents.
