Valley City  (Chamber 6-21-21)  The latest message from Valley City Mayor, Dave Carlsrud;

Hey Everybody,

What a beautiful day and great crowd were afforded us for Rally in the Valley.  Thank you to all the folks who facilitated the wonderful community event for all to enjoy.

The Fire Department had a touching, well done Memorial Dedication with a flyover as a part of the Rally. Thank you to all the firefighters who participated in fundraising and construction to make it happen. Stop by and see the beautiful display on the east side of the Fire Hall.

A reminder. Many business owners rent dumpsters for their businesses. Please know the dumpsters are for private, NOT public use. This is an ordinance violation and can result in penalties. Please respect the rights of the people paying the rent. Thank you

Thank you to Chris Berg and Anna Johnson from KVLY for including Valley City in the “Small Town Spotlight” this week. We were allowed to promote our beautiful town.

The other day I went to a business that furnished bite-size candy treats. When I left, there was an empty wrapper lying just outside the door! L Let’s do like our Mom’s told us to do, dispose of garbage (cigarette wrappers too) appropriately. Try carrying a small garbage bag or box in your vehicle; it is pretty unobtrusive.  “Please think before you toss” thank you again.

Perhaps you noticed a great number of young people applying mulch and working with new plantings around town. Thank you to our Beautification Committee and youth from the Church of Jesus Christ of LDS for all your work. It looks GREAT!! There were more than 270 young women attending the Church of Jesus Christ of LDS Conference at VCSU. Thank you for choosing Valley City and I hope you will visit us again.

August 5th, be watching for “The Longest Table”. For details see: http://www.vclongesttable.org/

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — The North Dakota Republican Party has a new leader. Mandan businessman Perrie Schafer was elected chairman of the state GOP during the group’s annual meeting this past weekend in Medora. He replaces longtime party operative Rick Berg, who opted not to run for re-election. The 61-year-old Schafer has more than 40 years of business and management experience. He also had the support of Berg, who was first elected party chairman in March 2018 to fill out the term of Kelly Armstrong after Armstrong stepped down to run for Congress. Berg served in the North Dakota House of Representatives from 1985 to 2011 with stints as speaker and majority leader. He was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 2010 when he defeated Democrat Earl Pomeroy.

In world and national news…

(AP)  The U.S. is reaching a pair of encouraging milestones as the COVID-19 pandemic’s grip on the nation continues to loosen. COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. have dipped below 300 a day for the first time since the outbreak’s early days in March 2020. Meanwhile, nearly 150 million Americans are fully vaccinated against the coronavirus. COVID-19 was the third leading cause of death in the U.S. in 2020, behind heart disease and cancer. Now, however, data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggests that more Americans are dying every day from accidents, chronic lower respiratory diseases, strokes or Alzheimer’s disease than COVID-19.


WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden is expected to fall short of his commitment to shipping 80 million COVID-19 vaccine doses abroad by the end of June. Officials say that’s due to regulatory and other hurdles. The White House, meanwhile, is pushing ahead with new plans for sharing the shots abroad. On Monday, the White House announced the final allocations for the doses, with 60 million shots going to the global COVAX vaccine-sharing alliance and 20 million being directed to specific partners. A White House official said shipments will go out as soon as countries are ready to receive the doses and the administration sorts out logistical complexities.


(AP)  The head of the World Health Organization says it is in discussions with numerous companies and institutions to create a technology transfer hub for coronavirus vaccines in South Africa. The consortium involves a company called Afrigen Biologics and Vaccines. It will act as a hub both for making vaccines that use a genetic code of the spike protein, known as mRNA vaccines, and by providing training to other manufacturers to make these shots. South African President Cyril Ramaphosa says the new WHO effort would “change the narrative” for Africa and help enhance the continent’s ability to “take responsibility for the health of our people, for the health of Africans.”

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California Gov. Gavin Newsom and lawmakers are negotiating whether to extend the state’s ban on evictions for unpaid rent. Federal and California eviction protections expire on June 30. Newsom has proposed using federal coronavirus aid to pay off all of the unpaid rent that people owe. But it will take time to distribute that money. Some tenant advocacy groups want the nation’s most populated state to extend eviction protections until the unemployment rate for low-wage workers reaches pre-pandemic levels. But the California Apartment Association says landlords can’t afford to wait much longer because many have gone without rent checks for more than a year.


JERUSALEM (AP) — The Israeli military says it has successfully tested an airborne high-power laser that can shoot down drones, technology it hopes to deploy on a larger scale in the coming years. Israel already boasts a large and sophisticated air defense system. The military says it had a 90% interception rate against thousands of rockets fired from Gaza during last month’s 11-day war. The laser technology would complement the existing system. A Defense Ministry official says a prototype, developed with Elbit Systems, was mounted on a civilian plane and successfully shot down “several” drones in a recent test over the Mediterranean Sea.


BERLIN (AP) — The German military has gotten its first rabbi in over a century with the inauguration of Hungarian-born Zsolt Balla at a synagogue in Leipzig. The German government in 2019 approved a proposal by the Central Council of Jews to restore religious counseling for Jews serving in the armed forces. During World War I, many Jews fought for Germany and dozens of rabbis are known to have performed pastoral work in the military. But when Adolf Hitler’s Nazis came to power in 1933, they excluded Jews from all spheres of public life, later murdering millions in the Holocaust. Balla was ordained in 2009.


WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court has decided unanimously that the NCAA cannot enforce rules limiting education-related benefits that colleges offer to student athletes — things like computers and paid internships. Monday’s ruling will help determine whether schools decide to offer athletes tens of thousands of dollars in those benefits for things including tutoring, study abroad programs and graduate scholarships. The case doesn’t decide whether students can be paid salaries. Under current NCAA rules, students cannot be paid, and the scholarship money colleges can offer is capped at the cost of attending the school. The NCAA had defended its rules as necessary to preserve the amateur nature of college sports.
