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.

West Fargo City Commissioners and Cook Sign Company came to an agreement Monday night that will allow a sign, in modified form, to remain on the Trail King Industries Building at 2130 3rd Ave. N.W. Cook Sign officials had installed the sign without a permit at Trail King last year. After the sign was installed, a permit request was made.

Students at Eastwood Elementary helped spread a little caring last week through their observance of a Kindness Week event. The project involved students participating in a Treats For The Troops collection, with the treats gathered sent to soldiers who have a connection to an Eastwood student or staff member. The Eastwood Student Ambassadors, a group of fifth grade students, gathered Friday, Feb. 15, in the Eastwood Library to help pack up the treats.
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.
