The City of West Fargo experienced another good year in 2007 and officials are looking ahead to a repeat in 2008 and the continuation of West Fargo's earned reputation of 'City on the Grow.' These words from West Fargo Mayor Rich Mattern, as he delivered his annual state of the City message during Monday nights Commission meeting, commending city employees and fellow city commissioners for their role. He said the City was able to maintain its growth in 2007, with 318 new dwelling units constructed, including single family, twin home and multiple family units, compared to 305 units in 2006.
Even though she must endure a second kidney transplant, Dorinda Anderson still considers herself lucky. Lucky, that the first surgery carried her 29 years, when in all reality it should have been a much shorter time. Lucky, that medical technology has advanced to the point that another transplant is a viable option. And lucky, because she has a donor, thanks to the unconditional love of family members who had no misgivings about stepping up to the plate and providing a new kidney and a new lease on life. Kidney disease has long been a factor in Dorinda's daily life, going all the way b
Always anxious to try new recipes, I was so inspired this past weekend after I saw one of my favorite Food Network 'chefs' selling one of her famous cakes on one of the home shopping networks for just under $30. It looked delicious, but my thought was 'wow, who would spend almost $30 on one little cake?,' when you could bake one yourself that would be equally as good. So I went on line and searched for the name of the cake and lo and behold there was the recipe - not the one that I had seen advertised on television, but several other different variations made with the same base cake recipe.
If you are looking for a relaxing time on Sunday afternoon as well as an opportunity to dine out, an excellent suggestion would be to venture over to Faith Lutheran Church around 4:30 p.m.

When we received the letter to the editor this week pertaining to the NEA promoted Read Across American observance, I couldn't help but think how quickly a year passes. In the past, our photographer paid a visit to a local school and captured the essence of the day devoted to Dr. Seuss, as students and staff wholeheartedly participated in the reading event, with several also dressing the part of their favorite literary character, with those from the "Cat in the Hat" topping the list.

A brand new pharmacy in Eagle Run has opened its doors and is hosting a special grand opening celebration, Feb. 25 through March 1. Frontier Health Mart Pharmacy, owned by Jayme Steig, is located at 3306 Sheyenne St., Suite 218, in the Eagle Run Plaza. Originally from Sawyer, N.D., Steig earned a pharmacy degree from North Dakota State University, Fargo. Upon graduating, he spent six years in both community and long-term care practices, before deciding to venture out on his own. Steig and his wife, Katie, also a pharmacist, are the parents of a three year old son, Sam.
The cold weather is getting really, really old, along with all the snow piles that have popped up intermittently around the community, prompted by snow removal crews looking for a place to store the white stuff for the interim until it can be hauled away or better yet, it warms up significantly, and melts away on its own. The latter might be wishful thinking, but there is promise of warmer conditions this weekend, yes 30 degree temperature ranges, if that qualifies as 'warmer' in your scheme of things.
