Lisa Black uses cancer journey to help others

June 13, 2012

Lisa Black’s reason for wanting to participate in this year’s Relay for Life is more personal than for many people. Lisa, who will be conducting the luminary ceremony, has a number of family members who’ve been affected with cancer. But she is also a survivor of cancer herself.

Although this is her first year partaking in Relay for Life, Lisa said she’d been interested before but was never around during the event.

The relay takes place 6 p.m. Friday to 6 p.m. Friday to 6 a.m. Saturday at Lokken Field.

Voters choose to let UND scrap Sioux nickname

June 13, 2012

FARGO, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota voters decided Tuesday to let the state’s flagship university dump a controversial Fighting Sioux nickname that sparked threats of NCAA sanctions, ending — at least temporarily — a dispute simmering for decades that divided sports fans, alumni and even tribes.
The matter boiled over seven years ago when the University of North Dakota was placed on a list of schools with American Indian nicknames that the NCAA deemed hostile and abusive. Those colleges were told to dump the names or risk penalties against their athletic teams.

1st innings fuel VC Babe Ruth team

June 13, 2012

The Valley City Babe Ruth baseball team had its offense clicking on all cylinders in a double-header sweep of Edgeley Tuesday at Charlie Brown Memorial Field.
In two games that lasted a combined eight innings, Valley City scored 41 runs and had 28 hits. The day started with a 29-2 win in five innings in the first game and concluded with a 12-3 win in a three-inning second game.
“Its nice to see our offense continue to go like it has, and for the most part we haven’t been relying on walks, we have been aggressive and collecting hits,” Valley City coach Lance Lukes said.
