Last week I put out a call for recipes and either coincidentally or in direct response, when I came into work early on Monday there was a manila envelope filled with wonderful beef recipes on my desk from Joan Blegen of West Fargo, who had compiled them for her local District 7 CattleWomen's group for which she is the public information chairperson. There is a wonderful cross-section, all favorites from farm wives who comprise the CattleWomen's membership. The name of the contributing provider is included, right next to the recipe name.
The election is over, candidates will assume their newly elected positions later this month, the smoking ban has been approved, so it's time to start moving forward, wherever that may lead. I just want to offer congratulations to all of the candidates who worked so intensely the last few months in their bids for election or re-election. After covering the city government beat for I don't know how many years, I must admit it will be different not seeing Commissioner Brenda Warren sitting in that familiar end chair she has occupied during her last two terms.

Red River Valley Fair General Manager Bryan Schulz hopes everyone will take the time to pay a visit to this year's Fair set for June 13 through June 21, conveniently located at the Fairgrounds on the west edge of West Fargo. He's betting attendees will be pleasantly surprised and even a little bit amazed at the diversity that will abound, with events and activities promising to offer something for everyone. "Some of our activities have been around for years that people aren't even aware of," Schulz said.
As part of an expansion and relocation, Marcil Technologies is spearheading the creation of a West Fargo Technology Center that will be located at the Pioneer Center, off of 9th Street and 13th Avenue East.

The announcement was made last week at a special news conference attended by West Fargo city officials and representatives of Marcil Technologies, as well as North Dakota Gov.
Eric Halvorson is well-rounded in his interests but one area he particularly enjoys and excels in is speech. So much so, that during his recent junior year at West Fargo High School, he earned the honor of being named an Academic All American by the National Forensic League.

I not only enjoy previewing my recipes weekly but I would also like to provide the opportunity for some of my readers to do the same. So if you have any that you think are really good standout, family recipes that you are willing share, I'd love hearing from you either by email or any other way that might work for you. This week we are featuring some favorites from Carol Hallett of rural Harwood, who was the subject of a human interest story in last week's Pioneer, focusing on her retirement from her long-running daycare.
New year, new manager and with it a new beginning of sorts for this year's Red River Valley Fair. There are high hopes for an excellent turnout and hopefully, a record year both attendance wise and financially. His first go-round Fair General Manager Bryan Schulz is doing a great job promoting the nine-day event that kicks of this Friday and runs through the following Saturday with a full slate of diversely entertaining happenings, some old popular regulars along with several new activities, many of which should entice the interest of the entire family. The encouraging part is there has
