West Fargo truly lost one of its finest last week with the death of David Bruckner, retired West Fargo Police Department official who stepped down reluctantly two years ago from his position as Captain, due to a recurring bout with cancer. Bruckner was a true professional in every sense of the word, with his humble and caring side always showing through, both for the people he worked with and the people he dealt with on a daily basis through his position. A calm demeanor was his typical nature, driven by a passion for certain elements in his life. It was apparent that he loved his work a

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.
