Wondering what topic to write about this week, I found myself sitting around a campfire at a friendâ€™s lake cabin Friday night. As the twelve of us visited and bounced from topic to topic, the mood was very laid back, as you would expect from a weekend at the cabin. And then one personâ€™s name was brought up, causing the calm, laid back chatter to suddenly turn serious and defensive.
That name was LeBron James.
Valley City State University honored its Diamond Level, Regents Level and Legacy Society donors Monday in a recognition luncheon at Sabirâ€™s Dining and Lounge.
About 50 people attended the luncheon and program presented by the VCSU Foundation.
Recognized at the Diamond Level, for $100,000 to $249,000 were Dacotah Bank, Robert and Jan Ingstad and Ralph and Carolyn Kolstoe.
The Valley City School Board discussed how and why the district failed to meet the goals of the No Child Left Behind Act and how they were going to work to achieve them in the future at Mondayâ€™s regular board meeting.
Mild temperatures and minimal precipitation made for perfect camp weather last week when the Valley City Service Unit Girl Scouts enjoyed two evenings at Camp Tonweya-Tiayta, which means â€śScouts Home,â€ť located near the Valley City National Fish Hatchery.
Troop leader Kirsten Dockter explained that some camps are affiliated through their headquarters, Girl Scouts Dakota Horizons, but this one was held by the local troop leaders.
