Former West Fargo Mayor and City Commission candidate Peter Allan Karl was charged Oct.
West Fargo City Commissioners approved a new access entry onto Ninth Street East Monday night that will provide an emergency exit for the West Fargo Police Department from their property for police vehicles responding to calls. The access was requested by the police officials as a tie in to the new police and city hall expansion project with the intention to use it basically for emergency exiting to get police vehicles onto Ninth Street.
Terry and Ann Stargardt believe Halloween is for having fun and they are accomplishing that for the eighth year running by sharing their decked out yard at 3819 Sheyenne Street appropriately named “Tunnel of Terror,’ both with passer-byes and those who want to stop and take a closer look. The purpose of the menagerie of Halloween décor, which is upgraded and added to each year, is twofold according to Terry: simply for the pure fun of it; as well as collecting non-perishable food items that are given annually to a different local charity.
By the huge smiles that framed their faces it was obvious that Ann and Eric Paulsen were more than pleased to welcome United Way Day of Caring volunteers into their West Fargo home on a bright sunshiny day last Thursday afternoon Oct. 10. The purpose of the annual event is to reach out to seniors to see what projects they need help with and then recruit volunteers to carry out the requests as well as provide companionship for the afternoon. This was the second year in a row the Paulsen’s had experienced the community gesture which Ann described as “just amazing.

I couldn’t help but notice as I was driving down Main Avenue this weekend that the Old Dairy Queen building at 201 East Main is no longer there having been demolished. The business had its beginning in 1951 when the late Walter Ruff brought the business to town after the franchise caught his attention as the newest national trend featuring the sweet soft serve ice cream with the curl. If I remember correctly, he and his wife, Freida, operated it for many years until it changed hands and Dennis and Connie Filley followed by David and Nancy Stedman, became future owners, until it eventuall
