City crew goes above and beyond
West Fargo residents have it made when it comes to the city’s sanitation crew and the extra effort they afford to make sure that all the trash is picked up. And all for a meager $13 a month for residential curbside garbage including the recycling collection, with no limits on the...

Labor Day time to pause, enjoy
When we say it’s Labor Day weekend do we really give any thought to the actual meaning behind the observance? To me, it’s the exact opposite of laboring, instead a time to take it easy, relax and picnic or party with family and friends as the final “hurrah” of summer. But...

Easter is for sharing with family
Holidays are for sharing with family and Easter Sunday is among those that top the list. Growing up I can remember starting the day with Mass (actually the week with a series of church services in conjunction with Holy Week) and then having relatives over for a huge noon meal followed...

Bring on spring: Change of season definitely a good thing
What a difference a year can make. Especially when it comes to the weather. Last year at this time we were experiencing downright balmy temperatures reaching the 70-degree mark. Definitely not the case this year. With spring officially upon us today, winter continues to rear its unrelentless...

Recreation at its finest, both indoors and out
Cold, cold temps seem to be in the forecast at least for the start of this year's Winter Days festivities today (Wednesday). Not necessarily a bad thing, just requiring the need to bundle up a little bit more to face the challenge of the elements when it comes to some of the outdoor...
