Longtime West Fargo residents Glen and Jeannine Maurer couldn't be prouder as the great-great-grandparents featured in a five-generation photo taken recently along with their first great-great-grandchild, Liam Andvik.

With not too much free time to do a lot of at home cooking Carrie said she turned to this recipe because of the obvious ease in preparation and the fact it required only a few ingredients and no browning time for the chicken..
National Library Week, being observed April 14 through April 20, is the perfect time to highlight the value of libraries, librarians and library workers and to emphasize the important role our local libraries play in communities throughout the nation. “Communities Matter at your Library” is this year’s theme chosen by the American Library Association, which reinforces the fact that libraries are trusted places where everyone can gather to reconnect and reengage with each other to enrich and shape the community and address local issues.
