State Engineer Has Final Call on DL Outlet

June 25, 2012

BISMARCK, N.D. – The fate of the Sheyenne and Red River Valleys are in one man’s hands: State Engineer Todd Sando.

On Friday, Richard Betting of the People to Save the Sheyenne and Valley City City Commissioner Madeline Luke of the Ad Hoc Downstream Group presented testimony to Sando at a hearing on the permit that would allow the newly constructed outlet on the east end of Devils Lake to operate. The outlet would drain into the Sheyenne River, which feeds into the Red River of the North and runs into Canada.

“The world with less cancer and more birthdays gets closer with every Relay for Life event,” said emcee Paul Leier during the opening ceremony.

Funds raised from the event go to the American Cancer Society, which sponsors Relay for Life, to find cures and fight back against cancer, team developer Carol Grenz said.

June 22, 2012

If you would have asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up when I was 5 I would have told you I wanted to be a penguin breeder. It wasn’t until I turned 17 that I knew for a fact I wanted to be the television weather girl. Now that I’m ripe and nearly 46 I have an insatiable desire to teach as much as I learn and I want to do it living.

Construction of New Bridge Nears Completion

June 22, 2012

The finishing touches are being applied to the new North Valley Bridge on County Road 21 north of Valley City, and the days are numbered for the old bridge.

“The (new) bridge itself is about complete,” said Barnes County Highway superintendent Kerry Johnson. “They have some coating to put on the railing, abutments and piers and then remove the rest of the forms... I would say there’s less than a week’s worth of work on the actual bridge itself.”

Light ‘em up: Labor Club to allow smoking after 2-month ban

June 21, 2012

Smokers savored their cigarettes inside the Labor Club on Tuesday after the bar decided to reverse its two-month-old ban on smoking.

The Club went smoke free on April 1, and since then bar owner Kerry Anderson said the Club took a 40 percent hit in sales.

“It’s all business,” Anderson said. “We gave it a fair shot and it lasted for two months of the worst sales I’ve ever had in the history of my business here. It was worse than I ever expected to be. So all these people who tell you to go smoke free and business will pick up, it’s false in the bar business.”

Staycations – fun at home!

June 20, 2012

With summer’s arrival, families turn to the age-old question: “What should we do for a summer vacation?” Well, there are the usual answers and then there’s something that is fairly new to our vocabulary – staycations.

According to Webster’s Dictionary and Wikipedia, staycation is a newly coined term for a period in which an individual or family stays and relaxes at home, possibly taking day trips to area attractions. They became popular during our country’s recent financial downturn as families sought inexpensive ideas for spending time together.
