County Waits On Buyout Demolition

September 24, 2012

Time is ticking for the demolition of the three remaining Barnes County properties bought out by FEMA following the 2009 flood.

The county commission met Friday morning to approve an agreement giving the contractor hired for the demolition an extra two weeks to tear down three houses. Plecity’s Excavating, LLC, of Valley City, has until Oct. 15 to demolish the properties. The county’s deadline with FEMA to have the work completed is Nov. 1.

“We just don’t have any wiggle room,” said Commissioner Rodger Berntson.

Blonde on the Prairie: Recognize Autumn with a Sweater

September 21, 2012

I woke up and for some odd reason I could only talk in a British accent. I’m a mimicker and mimickers many times mimic other distinctive dialects. When I want to sound harsh I break out my best Russian. I pucker my face and make my forehead purposefully furrow. Though most Russians are very kind people, their language comes across as a bit harsh. “Please. Take garrrr-bage out now,” I mimic like I mean it and my name is Svetlana rather than Jodi. The real Russians in my life call me “Jodichka.” That can never sound harsh because it’s so endearing.
