Erma Overby: Her life as a nurse and her legacy in Barnes County

June 8, 2012

“Do you know if Erma is home?” Sandy Hall recalls a time when she was at a local business and overheard a woman ask another that question. The woman was referring to Hall’s mother, the school and county nurse, and just about everybody’s friend.

“No one had to say Erma Overby,” Hall explained, “Most everyone knew her by her first name.”

Erma Overby was a nurse in Barnes County who spent much of her career working as the school and county nurse. Overby was also instrumental in starting many of the healthcare organizations that exist today in Valley City.

June 7, 2012

DICKINSON — In both days of the Class A state boys golf tournament, Valley City High School senior Nick Jenson saved his best for last. The last nine, that is.
In both days of the 36-hole tournament, which ended Wednesday at Dickinson’s Heart River Municipal Golf Course, Jenson struggled in the course’s front nine, but was able to make up for it on the back.
“I like the back nine a lot better here, so I knew I’d make some birdies and I did” he said.
He finished with a final score of 155, which tied for sixth place and earned him All-State honors.
