Mike Schmaltz has added a new 64×120 foot greenhouse to the south end of Schmaltz’s Greenhouse. He plans to add more plant varieties and more large pots next year. Terpening Construction did the cement work and Becker Construction constructed the building. Metal benches will used instead of the wooden ones that are used in the other 7 greenhouses.
This office was added 3 years ago on the south east end.
May 8 and 9th a representative from Proven Winners will be at the greenhouse for 2 days. She will give talks during the day on uses of their product and will visit with the people. Proven Winners is America’s #1 plant brand. Mike, Tiffani Schmaltz and Kailey Lemer were taken by their company plane to tour their Four Star Greenhouse’s 27 acres of indoor growing area and an additional 4 acres of outdoor growing space.
A Griffin Seed representative will also be at the Greenhouse on May8-9 to talk about their seeds.
Mike has owned the greenhouse for 30 years.
If you wish to purchase a tree or succulent call 701-693-5686 or stop by the greenhouse as Mike is there almost every day.
Terpenning Construction of Maddock did the cement work for the foundation and Becker Construction put up the building.
This spring the north half of the former John Mahle bar (east side of Main St.) was torn down. The south half of the building has been remodeled into a garage/shop for Mike Borgen to store motorcycles, snow blowers, other outdoor equipment and a shop. Mike purchased the building from Kevin Hornerman several years ago.
He also resided the front and south side of his house (formerly Schmaltz Beauty Shop) and added a large porch to his entrance in the alley.

Work continues on the Historic Bank on Main St. in Anamoose. Andy Melton has been doing the renovation and Ewert Construction did the dry wall taping and texturing.
The flooring and ceiling have yet to be done. The ceiling will be white tin ceiling panels.
West door of safe
The old safe will be left in place and may be used for memorabilia. It is very unusual in that it has two doors. The brick wall on the west side of the safe has been left exposed. There are two bathrooms-one east of the safe and one in the basement. Glass board will be used on the walls for easy cleaning. The basement steps have been moved to the middle-next to the north wall. The basement is in good condition and will be used for storage. All windows have been replaced. The front door was taken to Kevin Duchsherer in Drake for rebuilding.
The plumbing, heating and air conditioning was done by Ralph’s Plumbing and Heating in Minot where Chad Marquart (formerly from Anamoose) works. The electrical work is being done by Heilman Electric in Harvey. Kitchen appliances have not been purchased yet.
The Anamoose JDA owns the building and will lease it out for a restaurant. Members of the JDA are: Frank Ewert, president; Mike Rudnick; Mike Borgen; Ted Mertz; Bill Goodwin; and Jackie Martin. The estimated openng date is the end of September.
Kathy Becker planting flowers
A large memorial flower pot has been added to the front entrance of St. Martin’s Lutheran Church.
It was purchased and planted by the Elmer and Agnes Schmidt family. The flowers and dirt were purchased at the Schmaltz Greenhouse.
A friend from Bismarck told me yesterday that her daughter, Jasmine Backstrom’s 5 year old son lost his 2 wheeler red bike at the Anamoose park last week.
They had gone to lunch and forgot the bike till after they were done eating. When they went back it was gone.
Does anyone knowwhat happened to it? Please call Jasmine at 701-351-3820 or Alyce Heer at 701-889-2121.
