Face-painting firm started in Valley City

June 5, 2012

Thomas Face Painting has been at every major street fair in North Dakota as well as numerous festivals throughout North Dakota and Minnesota, and it all started right here in Valley City. Former Valley City resident Thomas Huus is the founder and owner of Thomas Face Painting, which is now based in West Fargo.

Huus started painting faces about eight years ago as an artist’s way to make ends meet.

“I went to Disney World and saw the face painting stands they had there, and I knew something like that would work in North Dakota because no one else was doing it,” Huus explained.

Farmers market gets donation, changes name

June 5, 2012

Valley City’s Saturday farmers market has been given a new name in honor of Rose Boggetto, a farmers market regular who died April 20.

From now on the market will be called “‘Rose’s Valley City Saturday morning Farmers Market.’ We just did the new signs,” said Becky Huber, who manages the market with brother Arlen Huber.

Rose’s husband, Jon Boggetto of Valley City, presented the market with a $540 check Saturday in her honor.

“She was a big fan of the market and worked at the market registering people,” Boggetto said.

Some low cost summer activities for families

June 4, 2012

Here are a number of wonderful low cost summer activities for kids and families that help families keep their hard-earned money in their pockets.

With each of these ideas, you might fashion “what to do” boxes. Create two boxes - one for “outside” and one for “indoors” - containing index cards with activities written on them. Rotate who in the family gets to pick the card for that day. This is a great way to avoid activities that cost a lot of cash and a fun way to create a family plan.

Some tense moments wrapped up the month of May for local law enforcement officers. The month also saw a new police chief hired and one of the wilder Memorial Day weekends.

Fred Thompson, a recently-retired police captain from Henderson, Nev, was chosen from 39 candidates that were whittled down to 10 phone interviews and five face-to-face interviews. Thompson is a 29-year veteran of the Henderson Police Department.

As sewer work was underway in downtown Valley City on Thursday, May 31, workers uncovered a gas line on the south side of the high school.

Enderlin/Maple Valley claims inaugural Class B softball title

June 3, 2012

WEST FARGO — There weren’t many times this season when Enderlin/Maple Valley pitcher Kaylee Johnson felt genuine nerves.
But she admits had some butterflies as she fielded an otherwise-routine ground ball with two outs in the top of the seventh inning of Saturday’s 2-1 Class B state championship win over Central Cass at Elmwood Park.
“It was just ‘Oh my gosh, I can’t believe this is happening,’” Johnson said.
A quick, easy throw to first baseman Lakken Boeder not only ended the game, but also made history.

Family ties pave way for Falcons' title

June 3, 2012

When Maple Valley High School sophomore Abbie Tinjum was younger, she had no intention of joining the Enderlin/Maple Valley softball team, nor did she realize she would become a state champion in the sport.
“I didn’t even want to play at first in eighth grade. I wanted to run track,” Tinjum said.
The difference in getting her on the field was an older sister on the team, who forced her out to a few practices.
“Once I started it, I liked it so much more. Now it’s one of my favorite sports,” Tinjum said.

WEST FARGO — When Enderlin/Maple Valley coach Neva Hamre was asked about a few of her players following Friday's 25-4 win over Grafton in the Class B State Semifinals, she was at a loss for words.
"I just don't really know what to say about them," she said. "We're just — I don't know — it doesn't seem hard. We're just doing what we do."
What they do, and continued to do at the second day of the inaugural Class B State Softball Tournament, is win.

Blonde On The Prairie: Don’t give ugly a voice

June 1, 2012

The chaplain at my work witnessed it. I came to my office and stood in the doorway of the conference room where most of my co-workers gathered.
“May I have your attention please? I have an announcement to make,” I announced in my best announcement voice.

The room hushed as they all turned their conversations off and their ears on. They took their stare off the glare of their computer screens in order to properly delve in to the proclamation I was about to proclaim.
