Nice news of the day – January 1, 2019

Happy New Year!  I hope 2019 brings you happiness, health, and lots of ranch dressing. 🙂

Here’s a sweet fact: chocolate-covered potato chips – better known as Chippers – were introduced to the world by North Dakota’s George Widman.

And here’s a few more sweet things in today’s nice news: North Dakotans being nice, Sheyenne High students being thoughtful, and a Rugby couple who loves to sing. Read on.

  • No surprise here. (Valley News Live) 
  • Four Sheyenne High School sophomores have been making fleece blankets for veterans with PTSD. (West Fargo Pioneer) 
  • Three hundred years ago before we were married, my husband and I stopped in for a drink at the Hillsboro bar.  It turned out to be karaoke night, and it also turned out that Hillsboro is full of people with absolutely beautiful voices.  What’s that have to do with the news?  Well, Bob and Kat Brossart have been traveling around Pierce County (they stay within an hours’ drive of Rugby) to host karaoke parties for the last 18 years.  Maybe they should venture a little further to Hillsboro.
