Incumbent Dale Greenwaldt and newcomer Marie Busch were elected to the Eagle Valley School Board at the November 5 general election. This marks the first time local school board members have been elected at the general election.


The Eagle Valley School Board received some reassuring news at the November 7 meeting. Chuck Godding represents the school board on the Aqua Valley Board. He reported, “It’s going a little better than we thought it would.” The focus has changed from a hardware store to more student-orientated merchandise. The store sells pop, candy, and other sundries. Godding said the store averages $179 a day in sales with approximately $3726 gross sales since school began. The students are eating and drinking their way to business solvency.

Mrs. Ruth Kulick announced this week that Mr. Wm. Asmus of Fargo, North Dakota, has purchased the Clarissa Ballroom from her. The new owners took possession with the Saturday dance and will continue to operate the ballroom in the same manner as before.


The Eagle Bend Volunteer Fire Department had a busy Sunday, November 7. Early Sunday morning at approximately 6:35 a.m., the fire whistle blew, summoning the department to the Everett Anderson farm where a bad chimney fire was blazing. Upon extinguishing the chimney fire, the department returned to town. That evening about 9 p.m., the whistle again sounded. The home of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Cossentine was on fire. The fire, which started from an unknown origin, completely gutted the house. The intense heat melted most of the interior and all their possessions were deemed a total loss.
