Carrington, North Dakota Blog

If you haven't done so already, I'd like to invite you to take a look throughout my website/blog, CarringtonNews

.Com.  It's basically a guide to Carrington and the surrounding areas - obviously not a real newspaper, like the Foster County Independent. It's a site that I just do for fun – not money.  People are able to place free ads in the classified and real estate sections, and I don’t charge for links to business websites.

Foster County Commissioners' Meetings

 

NOTICE:  If you haven't been following our Foster County Commissioners' Meetings, now would be a good time to catch up on local government news.  Many community members have become concerned about the incompetent/unlawful actions of Commissioner Paul Straley and Auditor Teresa Risovi.

 

Update:  Thanks to the Foster County community, Foster County Commissioner Paul Straley was voted out of office on Nov. 4,2014.  His last day as commissioner was Nov. 18, 2014. Auditor Teresa Risovi was also voted out, but she can legally continue serving till April, 2015.

 

Take a look at Auditor Risovi's rude responses when questioned by Commissioner Carr at the November 18th commissioners meeting.

Carrington Ag Business Tour - July 30, 2013

 

 

     The Carrington Ag Business Tour took place on Tuesday, July 30, visiting four ag-oriented establishments in our area: Andy Deterding Ag Aviation; NDSU Carrington Research Extension Center; Richard Zink's Wholesale Ag Products; and the Van Bedaf Dairy.

     The four ag businesses on this tour are excellent examples of ag-oriented endeavors at their best. These business owners and the staff at NDSU Carrington Research Extension Center need to be commended for the extreme effort they put into their work... and for the economic opportunities/prestige they bring to our community.

     Special thanks goes to Steve Metzger for hosting the tour and to Farm Credit Services, North Dakota Farmers Union, Arrowwood Prairie Co-op and the Carrington Convention & Visitors Bureau for making this tour possible.

It was fun meeting with birders who gathered at the Putnam House after a week of participating in our Potholes & Prairie Birding Festival. From 23 states and Canada, they are a GREAT group... super interested in birds and super interesting, themselves. Listening to them made me want to participate in the event next year!
