The West Fargo Police Department will be hiring another officer and shifting one of their present employees to the role of School Resource Officer for the West Fargo School District. West Fargo City Commissioners approved this action at their Monday night meeting after hearing a request from Police Chief Arland Rasmussen asking them to move forward on the matter. With the opening of the new Ninth Grade Academy this fall, the West Fargo School District asked for an additional SRO beginning in January of 2008 to be at the school during the school year, providing policing type duties wherever
Gas prices continue to be an ongoing topic of conversation with the continual fluctuation at the pumps. This morning's price per gallon at all West Fargo stations is down to $3.07 a gallon for regular unleaded, a marked drop from the $3.29 of two weeks ago. It's down right demoralizing when $3 a gallon is starting to look good, considering state average prices were below the $2.28 mark last October, and in January of this year, the national average even a little bit lower than that.

Ryan Denis has joined the West Fargo Police Department as a patrol officer, officially coming on board in late April. A native of Argusville and a 1998 graduate of West Fargo High School, Denis went on to attend pre-law enforcement at North Dakota State School of Science in Wahpeton and earned his degree in criminal justice from Minnesota State University Moorhead in 2003, before completing ten weeks of Police Basic Training at Alexandria Technical College.
Rhubarb is in its prime, and plump and plentiful for the picking with all the recent moisture. And most, with a liking for sweets, will admit that there is nothing better than a fresh dessert made from the tart fruit-like plant that in actuality was considered a vegetable until the 1940s, when it was reclassified as a fruit since that was the way it had been considered and eaten. Rhubarb recipes have become abundant through the years, with the following a few favorites from my personal recipe files, including two variations each for pie and cake.
The history of Davenport dates back to March 18, 1882, when the town site was platted as one of the earliest settlements in Cass County, located in the heart of the Red River Valley, about 25 miles from Fargo. The land was conveyed by the U.S. Government to the Northern Pacific Railroad Col., later to Henry D. Cook, Jr., G.E. Channing and William Fletcher. The latter gentleman was responsible for having the land surveyed into town lots as the Town of Davenport. A petition signed by 34 legal voters to organize as a town was submitted to the Cass County Commissioners on Jan.
Berger Elementary has another beautiful tree gracing its grounds - a mighty Bur Oak dedicated in memory of Ariana Kaseman in a special tree planting ceremony May 23. Ariana, who was a first grader at the school, passed away Feb.
The recall effort initiated last week involving West Fargo City Commissioner Brenda Warren was ludicrous at best. Recall is serious business and something typically reserved for individuals believed to be engaged in blatant wrongdoing. The only 'wrongdoing' Warren can be accused of is her zealous stance on implementing a citywide smoking ban that will improve public health for everyone. Petitions were circulated at a number of West Fargo 'smoking allowed' bars last week asking for signatures from anyone wishing to see the election of Warren as a City Commissioner recalled.
