On the Move 2012: Effort proving a runaway success

April 23, 2012

Time to stop and take a deep breath. On the Move 2012 wrapped up on April 15 after three and a half months of encouraging diet, exercise and healthy lifestyle decisions among residents in Barnes County, and organizers report the program has had its biggest year to date.

“I’d say it was a huge success. We had the largest membership we’ve ever had,” said Andrea Winter of the Young People’s Healthy Heart Program, an On the Move Partner.

VC's Johnson competing at regional gymnastics meet

April 20, 2012

As a lifelong gymnast, Valley City’s Taylor Johnson is no stranger to pulling off a routine.
But entering this weekend, the USA Gymnastics Level 8 athlete had a few butterflies.
Rather than a small competition at one of the numerous gyms around North Dakota, she’ll be taking the floor at the Minneapolis Convention Center for the USAG Region 4 Championships.
“I’m probably just going to get a good experience out of it,” Johnson, 13, said. “It’d be cool if I placed.”
It’s a trip that only a handful of members of the Valley Twisters have ever taken.

Griggs county students help Dakota Wizards beat bullying

April 20, 2012

Special to the Times-Record
Bismarck’s Dakota Wizards basketball team, a developmental league team for the Golden State Warriors, has taken on a new opponent, bullying.
Earlier this month, the Wizards invited Griggs County Central students to their final home game to assist in their game plan to send out the message “stop bullying now.”
At the game, students took a pledge to treat people fairly, be inclusive and take action when bullying is happening to others. Additionally, the team highlighted a new North Dakota’s new anti-bullying law, “Cassidy’s Law”, which goes in effect this July.

Our Outdoors: Helping you gives glimpse at future fishers

April 20, 2012

For the past two weeks, I’ve been instructing a course on fly tying and lure making combined with a Fishing 102 of sorts for area youth age 12 to 15 which introduced them to light tackle fishing and the basics of the fly rod. After seeing the world that this generation has grown up in (and I know I’m starting to sound old) with cell phones, Xboxes, and a multitude of other distractions, I had my concerns that it would be tough to hold their attention. After all, sometimes it takes me, with my short attention span, an entire winter just to decide what lures to make in April.

North Dakota Outdoors: Easing concerns over an early fishing season

April 20, 2012

Each week I close my column with my contact email information. Later, when the inbox dings to signal a new message has arrived, I’m never certain what the pretense for the email is, but I do enjoy the electronic communication.
 Recently a reader took issue with an explanation I previously provided regarding harvest of big fish in the spring prior to the time that either walleyes or northern pike have spawned for the year.

The last three weeks have been a busy time for Wilbur Gabel. First up, three weeks ago Wilbur won...
Maple Valley trailed by no more than six until the third set Tuesday night in Tower City, but...
When all else fails, throw it to Levi Nix. Nix, the 6-foot, 4-inch sophomore quarterback, climbed...
