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-Linersâ success.
But what the team may lack in age, the girls make up for in experience.
âYouâre 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 theyâve got a lot of varsity experience,â coach Jason Lindgren said. âItâs not new to them.â
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.
âThe immediate need is from May to the end of August when these buyouts will occur,â said Commissioner Matt Pedersen. âThe ball is in motion, and I would like to see us come to an agreement that weâre willing to borrow the million and in parallel, research the various mechanisms to pay it back.â
Heavy black smoke resulted from an outside fire at Harvâs Welding on 10th Street Southwest 10:40 a.m. Monday morning in Valley City. Valley City Fire Chief Gary Retterath said welding work was being done on a box attached to a truck, and rubber in the bottom ignited, causing minor damage to the box.
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.
âI think the assessment is unfair,â Ninth Avenue homeowner Mike Bresnahan told the commission. âIn my case, the amount being assessed is about $21,000. The amounts are ridiculous relative to the values of the homes.â
