But Tuesday, the VCHS volleyball team added another item to the school's playoff agenda — a home match to start the Eastern Dakota Conference tournament.
The Hi-Liners, who lost 25-17, 25-16, 25-17 to Fargo North Tuesday in their regular season finale, will host Devils Lake in an EDC Play-In match, coach Katy Van Dyke said after the loss. A time and location for the match will be announced later this week.

Health Department Fights DUIs

October 31, 2012

The Barnes County Health Department’s Healthy Communities Coalition recently received $65,000 from the North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT) to develop a volunteer citizen DUI reporting program.

“You’ve heard of Neighborhood Watch? Well, this would be like Neighbor Road watch,” said Kasey Skalicky, Barnes County Health Department Traffic Safety Coordinator.

She hopes the program will stop a lot of crashes and deaths.
According to NDDOT, alcohol slows down reactions, impairs vision, interferes with concentration, dulls judgment and creates a false sense of confidence.
