Verna Rasmussen, a first grade teacher at Westside Elementary in West Fargo, was named 2008 North Dakota Teacher of the Year during the NDEA Instructional Conference in Minot Oct. 18, 2007. Rasmussen says when she was young she was always sharing her love of learning with others. "I was teaching my cats to lie on their back and drink milk out of a doll's bottle, teaching younger children in 4-H how to cook and sew, or reaching small children in Sunday schools classes," she said.
Spina bifida is much more than a familiar word in the Craig and Kristine Boser household - it is an everyday way of life. Their five-year-old son, Grant, was born with the disabling birth defect that affects approximately one of every 1,000 newborns in the U.S.
Last week we ran a brief story clip on suspicious individuals knocking on doors in a senior citizen living community asking to enter homes to check gas meters. The individual represented himself as being an official from a local gas company but carried no identification. To top it off, there were no gas meters located inside the residences; instead they were outside these particular units.

Each year the United Way Day of Caring takes on a little bit different meaning, with the end result typically the same - individuals and groups lending a helping hand to local residents in need of a little bit of extra assistance and support. This year, members of the West Fargo Community High School student leadership organization wanted to be a part of the giving spirit, making a trek to the West Fargo High Rise on Thursday, Oct. 11, at 230 8th Ave. W.
West Fargo City Commissioners voted Monday to table action on a feasibility study for a proposed golf course south of I-94 until other entities can be approached about sharing the bill for the study.

West Fargo Senior Citizens should be on the lookout for suspicious individuals wanting to enter their homes to check gas meters. The West Fargo Police Department received a call Monday, Oct. 15, at 1:56 p.m. about a suspicious person at Sheyenne Square Townhomes, located at 1100 Sheyenne St. A tenant had indicated to the individual making the call that a man came to her door claiming to need to check her gas meter at 11:30 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 14.

I've said time and time again that the best recipes are the ones found in church cookbooks. This week I'm sharing a potpourri of recipes that I've taken from the Faith Lutheran Church Cookbook, dated 1935 to 1984. I tried to pull recipes from each category that sounded both interesting and delicious.
