The West Fargo Public Works Department has announced that watering restrictions are now in place until further notice, recommending enactment by all residents and businesses when and where applicable. Officials state that current dry weather conditions have resulted in an increase in watering. That coupled with the inactivity of a city well currently under reconstruction has resulted in the watering restrictions.
Night to Unite is back for its yearly run Tuesday, Aug. 6, from 5 to 9 p.m. at Elmwood Park in West Fargo, 500 13th Ave. W. Hosted by the West Fargo Police Department, the annual gathering has become one of West Fargo's most anticipated evenings with a goal of bringing neighborhoods together to promote crime and drug prevention awareness, generate support for participation in local anticrime programs, strengthen community spirit, and most importantly, send a message to criminals that local citizens will not tolerate crime.

After a slow start with the growing season because of the cooler weather, the weekly Farmers Market and Beyond is now in full swing offering a wide assortment of fresh produce, fruits and other complimentary items every Monday and Thursday evening from 4 to 7 p.m. in the South Elmwood parking lot at 500 13th Ave. W. The July through through early October event was established in 2007 by the West Fargo Park District to provide a venue for local growers and food, art and craft artisans to "market" their items to the public.
All good things must end. Such is the case with the popular Veterans Memorial Poolt. Today will be the last for the 57-year old facility as we all know it. The good news is that it will be back in all-new form next year with a complete rebuild of the pool complex commencing shortly that will bring its amenities in line with other recreational facilities.
II have a huge folder of new recipes I've clipped from various magazines and other print sources that I turned to recently in a quest to come up with "something a little more out of the ordinary" to serve at mealtime. The first is a "Savory Cheddar Bread" recipe which reminded me a lot of my homemade beer bread, only minus the beer in favor of egg and milk instead. Served fresh from the oven, the end result was cheesy and delicious with the thickly cut slices disappearing quickly slathered with additional butter.
Family and friends are banding together for a special benefit event for Brian "Bommer" Bommersbach that will take place Thursday, July 25, from 5 to 9 p.m. at the El Zagal Shrine Center, 1429 3rd St. N.

There will also be a silent auction, bake sale, raffle and entertainment by Lake Country Band.

The traffic signal located at the Main Avenue and Sheyenne Street intersection will soon receive an update that will result in a protected left turn arrow that will reduce the amount of time motorists will have to wait to make their turn onto Sheyenne Street. A new signal head will be installed on the master arm and work completed on the inside of the wiring cabinet to facilitate the change which is expected to be completed in about two weeks time, according to Chris Brungardt, assistant public works director overseeing the project.

Hosted by the F-M Toppers Car Club and the city of West Fargo, the show will run from 5 to 9 p.m.
