The West Fargo Park District is looking for your input and time is running out. They'd like to know how you feel about existing and future sports, fitness, recreation and aquatic spaces and programs. Therefore, they are inviting the public to complete an online survey by next Tuesday, April 15. To so do visit www.wfparks.org and select the survey. It will only take a few minutes of time but it will be well worth it.
Teal blue balloons soaring high against a sky blue backdrop were a fitting tribute as family and friends gathered for a celebration of life for Caroline Ruby Vetter, daughter of Tyler and Abigail Vetter, April 1, at Blessed Sacrament Church.
West Fargo City Commissioners voted unanimously Monday night to approve first reading of a stricter smoking ban ordinance that will appear on the June 10 election ballot. The ordinance question will ask voters if smoking should be banned in bars, all parts of truck stops, and all public places rented to private parties, with a simple 'yes' or 'no' response. As currently written, the ordinance is tied to Fargo implementing a similar stricter ban.
Fifty years can sometimes pass way too rapidly, and nobody is more aware of this than members of the Fargo-Moorhead Toppers Car Club who are having a fantastic time finalizing last minute details of their 50th anniversary show, set for Saturday, April 5, and Sunday, April 6, at the Veterans Memorial Arena, located adjacent to West Fargo High School at 1201 7th Ave.
This week I'm featuring four excellent recipes that incorporate a 'south of the border' flavor, thanks to the interesting mix of seasonings, green chilies and tortilla shells. All are absolutely delicious and relatively easy. The "Chicken Enchiladas" are fantastic and can easily be made ahead of time. I prepare them the night before, refrigerate them, and then add the creamy topping and cheese right before placing them in the oven. Doing it this way requires baking them a little longer, so keep your eye on them. Just make sure that they are piping hot through the middle.
With spring now upon us, Kurt Lepird and his crew at The Silver Dollar are gearing up for a busy 'warm weather' season that will kick off with one of their biggest events of the year, the 10th Annual Charity Motorcycle Run, with proceeds benefiting the local Ronald McDonald houses.

Several positions are open for candidate bids in West Fargo, Harwood, Horace, Mapleton and Reiles Acres in the June 10 Primary Election.
West Fargo City Commissioners approved a five-year remodeling tax exemption Monday night for a house destroyed by fire in April of last year, belonging to Jack and Janet Kist at 1401 River St. Following the fire, the Kists built a new home on the old foundation of the house that was initially put in place in 1960, and asked the City for a two-year property tax exemption, currently being granted to West Fargo residents for new home construction. City Assessor Wanda Wilcox said that even though the new home was built in 2007, it didn't qualify for the two-year exemption because officials dec
Tried a couple of new crockpot recipes the last few weeks that I'm anxious to share. I'm always a little skeptical when a recipe sounds a little too easy to be true, but this time I can honestly say I was pleasantly surprised. Preparing the "Creamy Potato Soup" was literally a matter of mixing everything together in the crockpot. The hardest part was chopping the onion, and adding the cream cheese at the end.
Spring is arriving tomorrow, the weather has warmed up, and Easter is nearly upon us being celebrated Sunday. All certainly reasons to lift the spirits. Easter is an interesting holiday in that it moves around and doesn't always fall on the same date, i.e. the saying we've been hearing frequently, "Easter is so early this year." There's a reason for that. Easter is termed a moveable holiday because it is not fixed in relation to the civic calendar.
