ND Supreme Court won't block Fighting Sioux name election

April 3, 2012

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota's Supreme Court said Tuesday that voters should decide whether to keep the University of North Dakota's Fighting Sioux nickname before the courts judge whether a pro-nickname law violates the state constitution.

The court's split ruling clears the way for North Dakotans to weigh in on Measure 4, a referendum about whether UND must continue using the nickname and a separate American Indian warrior profile logo.

The measure goes to a statewide vote June 12. If Fighting Sioux supporters lose, UND intends to drop the nickname and logo.

Building on experience: VCHS softball returns plenty of players from last year's state contenders

April 3, 2012

Valley City High School softball coach Jason Lindgren is the first to admit that his team is plenty young.
With only five seniors, there are numerous freshmen and sophomores that contribute to the Hi-Liners’ success.
But what the team may lack in age, the girls make up for in experience.
“You’re counting on a lot of younger people but they, the sophomores for example, have been playing a lot since they were 8th graders, they saw time when they were 7th graders, so they’ve got a lot of varsity experience,” coach Jason Lindgren said. “It’s not new to them.”

The Valley City City Commission explored the possibility of loaning itself $1 million from the Public Works department for permanent flood protection funding Monday night.

“The immediate need is from May to the end of August when these buyouts will occur,” said Commissioner Matt Pedersen. “The ball is in motion, and I would like to see us come to an agreement that we’re willing to borrow the million and in parallel, research the various mechanisms to pay it back.”

Ninth Ave. project irks taxpayers

April 3, 2012

Some protest was heard over the impending Ninth Avenue Northwest reconstruction project Monday night, and the Valley City City Commission vowed to do what they could to make it right.

“I think the assessment is unfair,” Ninth Avenue homeowner Mike Bresnahan told the commission. “In my case, the amount being assessed is about $21,000. The amounts are ridiculous relative to the values of the homes.”
