VC Farmers Market starts Saturday

May 31, 2012

Valley City’s Saturday Farmers Market opens for the season Saturday at Hirschberger Park, said Becky Huber, who is managing this year’s market with brother Arlen.

This marks the 33rd year the Saturday market has been operating.
The Hubers are taking over management of the market this season from Sharon Clancy.

Huber has been selling her fresh local vegetables at the market “since day one.”

Helping the Hubers operate the market this year are Margaret Stoltz and Candy and Mike Rasmussen.

“We need all the help we can get,” Huber said.

Link between smoking, strokes

May 31, 2012

Special to the Times-Record

May is Stroke Awareness Month, and City- County Health District and the Center for Tobacco Prevention and Control Policy (the Center) are using the opportunity to underscore how the connection between cigarette smoke and stroke reinforces the need for comprehensive smoke-free policies.

Stroke is the fourth-leading cause of death in the U.S., and people who smoke cigarettes are twice as likely to have a stroke.

The Catch: Issues with All-Stars

May 30, 2012

MLB All-Star balloting opened May 20. Once again, just 40 games into the season, this is entirely too early. With the game being held July 10 in Kansas City, you would think the league could hold off on balloting for another two or three weeks, allowing All-Stars to be evaluated through closer to one-third of their games, rather than just a fourth. In my eyes, however, an even bigger mistake than the small sample size of games is the Little League mindset used by Major League Baseball.

Ashtabula restaurant, bar under new ownership

May 30, 2012

Those who spent Memorial Day weekend at Lake Ashtabula’s East Crossing resort might have noticed some new faces and a fresh coat of blue paint on the walls of the Ashtabula Crossing restaurant.

The popular eatery, located less than 20 miles from Valley City, is under new ownership as of April 9. Mary Jean Cuffe, formerly of Breezy Point, Minn., her sister Patty Hoff, and Patty’s husband Scott, formerly of Perley, Minn., purchased the restaurant and bar from former owner Bob Kelly.

Kadrmas in final year directing Derby

May 30, 2012

Tim Kadrmas will miss working with the kids and adult volunteers after he finishes this year – his final year – directing the Valley City Soap Box Derby, but after 18 years in the job he decided it was time.

“Looking at the faces of rookies coming down the track the first time you can see it is thrilling and exhilarating for them – you see the joy and fear and excitement in their faces.”

This year’s North Dakota Soap Box Derby takes place June 8 and 9 in Valley City.

Penalties steep for cow killers

May 30, 2012

The North Dakota Stockmen’s Association received an anonymous donation of $1,000 for its reward fund for information leading to the arrest of suspects involved in a pair of livestock shootings in Griggs County. The two incidents near Cooperstown involved the killing of four horses and three head of cattle. Authorities are also investigating a massacre of 14 cattle near Hankinson in Richland County.

Barnes County Sheriff Randy McClaflin said the occasional livestock shooting is not unheard of in the region.

VCHS golf team ready for regional meet

May 30, 2012

The Valley City High School golf team is no stranger to state, but this year, a few Hi-Liners took a different route getting there.
Rather than qualify with the rest of the team, senior Nick Jensen and Ben Sorenson and freshman Jared Lentz all qualified individually during a meet last week in Wahpeton.
“We’ve never really done that before,” coach Buff Murray said. “It’s something that’s new.”
But an individual sport, the Hi-Liners are keeping the focus solely on team entering today’s Eastern Dakota Conference regional tournament at the Edgewood Public Golf Course in Fargo.
