Changes to Valentine Car Show

Big changes are in store the the Valentine Classic Motor Club Car Show and Cruise Night this year.  Everything will take place on Saturday, June 4th with a cruise and show in the Heart City.  This will be the 27th annual event hosted by the car club.  Over the past several years it has been harder to get entries for the regular car show, while at the same time, the cruise night has been a huge success.  So this year the two events will be combined on June 4th.  Area residents with classic automobiles are encouraged to shine them up and get ready for the cruise and then stick around for an informal gathering to allow the public an opportunity to get a closer look at the cars.  Be sure to listen to the KVSH Comment program on Monday for more information about the cruise and show.


Kieborz appointed to City Council


Kallie Kieborz is the fifth member of the Valentine City Council. At last nights meeting Kallie was nominated by mayor Rowdy Kluender and approved unanimously by the other three members of the council. She will be sworn in at the next regular meeting and will fill the vacancy left by the resignation of former councilman Cliff Petersen.

16 people attended the meeting to express their support for the economic development program and the positive things it has accomplished in the community. The council was considering making some changes to the administration of the program. After a lengthy discussion, No action was taken on the issue.

Rates for the Valentine Family Aquatic Center will remain the same as last year. City Manager Shane Siewart pointed out that the pool lost about $35,000 last year. The council voted to keep the rates the same.

The council approved a resolution to encourage citizens to pick up litter in the public parks and alleys on June 4th. This would be held in conjunction with an effort to install the new disc golf course in the city park.

In other action, the fire department roster was approved, Norm Blume and Bob Witt were reappointed to the planning commission and Greg Gass and Walley Balliet were reappointed to the Board of Adjustment with Ed Swanson as an alternate.
