VCHS Girls Outlast Wahpeton in Season Opener

December 10, 2012

For the first game of the season, it had the feel and intensity of a playoff game. Wahpeton guard Lachelle Bumgarner shot the lights out with 38 points, but Valley City didn't back down. Four Hi-Liners scored in double digits as Valley City escaped with a 83-78 road win Saturday afternoon in double overtime.
" It would have been a long week to lose tonight, especially a game like this. This is a huge boost," Valley City coach Jim McDaniel said. "(It was) a very exciting game. I wasn't expecting to go a couple of overtimes."

VCSU Wom Win 8th Straight

December 10, 2012

Special to the Times-Record
The No. 19 Valley City State University womens basketball team's defense was on display Friday as the Vikings beat Trinity Bible College 78-45 in their eighth straight win this season.
Trinity Bible shot the ball well in the first half, jumping out to a 6-0 lead on back-to-back 3-pointers to start the game, while shooting 4-6 from the 3-point line in the first half to keep within reach at halftime.
However, the Vikings turned up the defensive pressure in the second half and forced 26 turnovers in the game and out-rebounded the Lions 46-26.

Shooting Struggles Stifle VCHS Boys

December 10, 2012

The Valley City High School boys basketball team did plenty of things right in its 49-43 season-opening loss to Wahpeton Friday at the Hi-Liner Activity Center, but at times, the ball just didn't seem to want to go in the hoop.
"They rebounded hard, they played defense hard. I thought we outhustled them and we outworked them, but our shooting percentage, we just couldn't overcome that," VCHS coach Scott Hurlimann said, citing a combined 7-20 performance at the free-throw line and 2-18 from the 3-point line. "We have to shoot better."
It was shooting that often seemed contagious.

Goreham is chairman of and professor in the NDSU sociology and anthropology department.

Students outlined results for advisory committee members Thursday in a meeting at the Sheyenne Valley Area Career and Technology Center.

Ice May Not be Safe for Fishing

December 10, 2012

Ice anglers should know what they’re doing before they go out onto the ice. This is what Scott Tichy, park ranger for the Army Corps of Engineers at Lake Ashtabula, wants people to know.

No ice is ever really safe, said Tichy, but ice conditions on Lake Ashtabula are currently poor. Some of the ice is thick enough for walking on, and some isn’t. And when a person is on the ice, he can’t tell if it is an inch thick or four inches thick, the recommended thickness for walking on.

It’s best to stay off until the weather is cooler, urged Tichy.

Mitten Tree in 35th Year in VC

December 10, 2012

When Valley City’s Rosie Larson was a young child, she saw a tree decorated with mittens in the window of a bank in Detroit Lakes. That tree happened to be a charity campaign that helps those in need during the holiday season.

“Being from a poor family myself, I didn’t have mittens or boots, and I thought when I get older, ‘I’m going to make sure they have the necessities,’” Larson said.

And so for the 35th straight year, Larson, being the director of a local, independent charity organization called Valley City Cares, has organized an annual mitten tree in Valley City.
