Valley News and Views Page 3 November 21st 2013 On the Trail of Captain Morgan The Valley News and Views is on the trail of Captain Morgan, famed privateer of old. I admit, North Dakota is a heck of a place to start the search, but we do have internet out here in these parts as well as a fine stage coach line. The plan, knock on wood, is to try to catch his path in in a glory and gold, oh yea, snacks too, expedition to the Caribbean this February. Following his trail through a little island hopping and wreck diving. Hoping to find a story or two there and put out the paper, at least in part, from somewhere out there as well, so some work involved. Can't pay your way, but if you're a diver or handy with camera or pen you might consider signing on. All booty will be shared. If you'd like to get certified for the trip, Mick's Dive Shop will be holding a certification class the weekend of December 6. You'll still have to be handed off to an instructor and complete the required open water portion of the certification in the caribbean, Contact the paper for details. I'm certified but will be taking portions of the class as a refresher. Still in the development stages. If you're interested, contact the paper. Sausage of the Week Grandpa's Old Time Sausage with Garlic is this week's featured Sausage of the Week. Grandpa's beenbusytrying to keep up with the demand for this tasty tube of meat. I also heard that Grandpa is going over the hill this week and that Grandpa's Garlic could be this year's official Christmas Sausage. Kip's Soup du Jour I was running too fast today and missed out on Kip's Soup du lour, which this day was ham and potato. I'm not a real potato soup fan in the first place, so would have been poor judge anyway. But I can still say that any of his soups I've tried, which are many, they're always good.
