VALLEY CITY, N.D. ( – Following the super dry summer, things have certainly turned around this fall. With warmer weather, many of the grasses, trees and bushes are still showing off some green color.  I think it looks nice.

Responsibility comes with owning pets. Certainly loving them and providing good health care are two, but licensing and “picking up” after them are also.  Licensing is a City Ordinance and provides a degree of welfare for all pets.  Please license your pets at the VCPD.

The Valley City Public School District has uploaded a video/PowerPoint Presentation from the public meetings on “Exploring the Future of School Facilities”. See the district website (Click Explore).  When you arrive at the webpage “Exploring the Future of School Facilities”, click the presentation on the left part of the screen and it will lead to the recorded video and PowerPoint (scroll down to see the PP).

COVID-19 is “kicking” unvaccinated people mostly. Some are on ventilators, some are dying and who knows the degree of permanent lung damage being suffered.  Please think further about getting your vaccination.

Saturday evening when the wind quit and the sun had set behind the west crest of the Sheyenne River Valley; the sky was colored a soft gold with a hint of blue accenting a beautiful silhouette of the tress and their leaves. Some days I forget to enjoy the simple beauties with which we are so often Blessed.  Perhaps I need to “stop and smell the roses” more often, maybe we all should.                                                                                  

Blessings, Respect Others, Be Kind and Pray

Mayor of Valley City
