I have an 8-year-old son who can’t stop eating.  We basically spent the summer feeding him every hour – so a free school breakfast for ALL kids sounds like a great, great idea to me. (KX Net)

Did you know Bismarck was recently ranked the 2nd least-stressed city in the U.S.?  Fargo came in 7th, which is still pretty chill.

And did you know today’s news is about a club barn, a polka party, and lemonade?  Read on.

I grew up in town in Grand Forks, and didn’t actually spend any actual time on a farm until I was in my 20’s – which is why it’s fantastic that 4-H and FFAers in Hettinger have a “club barn” for kids that can’t keep livestock at home. (Bismarck Tribune)

Who do I talk to about having a free polka party across the state? (Jamestown Sun)

My husband – who has never passed up a lemonade stand in his life – was so impressed by this effort that he stopped at two different stands to partake. (Grand Forks Herald)
