There comes a time when a person gets tired of asking, “Cold enough for you?”
So this January, I have been asking people around Grand Forks, “What is your favorite sandwich?”
And, I am here to tell you on a cold day in January, that the Reuben sandwich is a favorite of many. Here, for the sake of research, are the results.
• Del Hutson: Grandmother of UND basketball player Emily Evers: The Reuben.
• Yvonne Cronquist: The Reuben.
• Betty Lou Vorland: The Reuben. You don’t get them at home.
• Jim Bollman: The McRib at McDonalds.
• Jackie Saddler: Bacon, lettuce and tomato.
• Pat Devig: The BLT at Subway.
• Dick Olson: The Reuben with sauerkraut at Arby’s is the best.

Hoops and pucks
The last weekend of January arrives with stalled cars, frozen water pipes, icy sidewalks and some people still saying, “We live here because we like it here.”
UND sports fans can hear from coaches and athletes when they meet at noon today at the Alerus. … With plans to move on to men’s hockey with St. Cloud State tonight and Saturday and women’s basketball Saturday afternoon at the Betty with Northern Arizona. … There’s a legislative forum Saturday morning in Grand Forks City Hall. … And the Sunshine Fest and fun run/walk will center at The Ralph. … With North Dakota Dance and Drill State Competition at the Alerus and the annual FASA Junior Gold Hockey Tournament at the Purpur Arena on the calendar for the weekend. … And Family Day activities Saturday morning at the North Dakota Museum of Art are entitled, “Shoes, Shoes, Shoes.”
Q. What are some of the best bets for Sunday?
A. Special events include the annual Potato Dumpling and Ham Dinner at Grand Forks Masonic Center and Sunday services at United Lutheran Church, where the Woodticks musicians will be taking part in the service and meal to follow.
The Woodticks are back in town by popular demand. And the potato and ham dinner at the Masonic Center has been running for 10 years. Proceeds benefit Boy Scout Troop No. 16.
