Barnes County calls to N.D. Tobacco Quitline more than triple

December 21, 2011

The rate of calls to the North Dakota Tobacco Quitline from residents in Barnes County more than tripled from 2009 to 2010, said the county's Tobacco Prevention Coordinator, Vicki Voldal-Rosenau.

As a whole, smoking rates in North Dakota have decreased in the last couple years.

"This is just the beginning, if we don't let up" Voldal-Rosenau said. "Can we ever let up? Sure, but there's still a lot of people starting to smoke and it's a killer."

Free throw follies: VCHS girls go 0-11 at the line, lose 48-41 to Fargo Davies

December 21, 2011

Valley City High School girls basketball coach Jim McDaniel was plenty pleased with how his team played in Tuesday’s 48-41 home loss to Fargo Davies.
All night long, the Hi-Liners set the pace of the game, came back from small deficits and continued to play with a balanced offensive attack.
“I thought we handled their size, I thought we handled their pressure fine, I liked the pace of the game,” McDaniel said. “I liked a lot of the things we did, the key stat for us is that we were 0 for 11 at the free-throw line.”
It was that 0-11 stat that came back to haunt the Hi-Liners.
