Alice Eleanor Braniff passed away on her 89th birthday, March 8, 2014. Alice Nelson was born to John Marius Nelson and Bessie (Bjorge) Nelson on the family farm in Nelson County, North Dakota in 1925. She graduated from Lakota High School in 1943 and went on to earn her Bachelor of Science degree in Dietetics from the University of North Dakota. After graduation she went on to work at Michael Reese Hospital in Chicago, the Veterans Hospital in Minneapolis, and the Columbus Hospital in Great Falls. She was united in marriage on August 11, 1956 to Donald Braniff at Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Doyon, ND. The couple raised four children and made their home in Moorhead.
Alice was a member of Trinity Lutheran Church, Moorhead, since 1957 and volunteered there for over 30 years. She was an avid golfer and enjoyed golfing well into her 80s, recording two holes-in-one along the way. Even at 70+ years old she could play 27 holes, walking the first 18 and taking a cart for the last nine. She also volunteered countless hours at the Ponderosa Golf Course.
One year ago today, the area had 16 inches of packed, moisture-heavy snow on the ground following six weeks of cold and stormy weather. We had already received 42 inches of snowfall and had another 26 inches to go.
Some 70 trains a day roll through Moorhead on the Burlington Northern Santa Fe main line. Another track carries about 60 trains daily. They deliver a lot of frustration for local residents – and a lot of worry for local firefighters.
FARGO - While hops may get all the credit for flavor in your favorite IPA, brewing experts say it’s malt’s time to shine. Malt is made from barley – a major North Dakota crop. With a growing craft brewing industry nationwide, there’s a renewed focus on types of malt used for beer.
