Increased Police Presence-Hwy 75 South in Sioux County

(ORANGE CITY) -- The last of four saturation projects in Sioux County starts tomorrow at

noon on highway 75 south.  During the last phase, that took place near Rock Valley, 84

citations were written and 163 warnings were given over a two day period.  77 of those

warnings were repair memos. According to  Chief Deputy Jason Bergsma, the Sioux County

Sheriffs office wasn't happy about the level of collisions and death on their roadways

so they came up with the saturation projects as an effort to keep people safe. 

The patrol project is being conducted in association with the Iowa State Patrol and the

states Department of Motor Vehicle Enforcement. Again the last phase of the Sioux County

summer highway saturation project is tomorrow, Friday August 26th from 12 noon through

9pm.  

   

Le Mars- Daffodil Capital of the World?

(LE MARS) -- The Floyd Valley Federated Garden Club has a vision for Le Mars, bright

yellow flowers lining the streets as soon as the snow melts away. They are starting with

Central Avenue, from 2nd Street south to 9th Street south.  Garden Club member Dennis

Wolf says that the daffodil bulbs have already been ordered.

Over the course of the next 10 days, residents on that aformentioned section of Central

Avenue can expect to receive a participation sheet. This sheet will further explain the

objectives of this Le Mars enhancement project, planting instructions and contact

information, if the home owners and renters have any questions.

Wolf says the club chose daffodils because they're easy to care for, especially the

bright yellow variety that they picked...the King Alfred Daffodil.

When they're done blooming all you do is pop the seed head off and let them die back.
The free daffodil offer is currently for any home or structure along Central Avenue from

2nd to 9th Street south.  Dennis Wolf hopes the project eventually goes further down

Central Avenue and beyond.
