Ashley Mayor Denny Hoffman, who was elected to a second four-year term in June, has resigned. Hoffman presented a resignation letter during the Ashley City Council's meeting on Nov. 5, citing family and employment conflicts. Council President Kyle Thiery is acting mayor, as defined by North Dakota Century Code. The law stipulates that a citizen petition for a new election would have had to be turned in within 15 days—however that ship has sailed. However, the council could decide in its regularly scheduled meeting on Dec. 10 to hold a special election or choose a mayor from their ranks.

Fever, cough, muscle aches. Influenza season is here. But there is a way to dodge the dreaded illness. The N.D. Department of Health urges everyone 6 months old and older to get an influenza immunization every year to not only avoid getting influenza, but to keep it from spreading to family members. Tara Brandner, FNP at AMC Clinic in Ashley said, “We haven’t had any breakouts yet this year, but it is early in the flu season.” An annual vaccination is the most effective way to avoid influenza, and it’s never too late to be immunized. “Some people think that you can get the flu from the flu vaccine and that’s not the case,” according to Molly Howell, immunization program manager with the N.D. Department of Health, Division of Disease Control.
