VCSU volleyball loses opening games

August 20, 2012

The Valley City State University volleyball team showed glimpses of what its deep front line was capable of in Saturday's season opening losses to Waldorf (Iowa) College and Jamestown College.
Given the chances, the rotating barrage of Aurissa Martens, Jill Noeske, Rachel Hummel, Alley Theroux and Kelsey Labodi had no problem trying for kills.
The problem, especially in a three game loss to Jamestown, was a back line that struggled to get balls to its setter to run the offense as planned.

Police Patrol Parks After Dark

August 20, 2012

Valley City Police are stepping up patrol after a rash of suspicious activity and now a Monday-night arson were reported in Valley City’s Chautauqua and City Parks.

“We had some people call in and say that there were some people down there that looked kind of suspicious,” said Tyler Jacobson, Valley City Parks and Recreation director.

“We called the police and asked if they step up their patrol. We’ve also had a couple of fires going on out at Chautauqua; a couple individuals burned up one of garbage cans completely and burned one of our dumpsters too.”

August 20, 2012

A 1.5 mile stretch of smooth, new blacktop now rises, falls, twists and turns as it winds from the opening gate of Clausen Springs around the southern half of the lake to the Clausen Springs Dam. The road was finished last week and is the final piece of the restoration of the park after it was devastated during spring flooding in 2009.

The Big Winner

August 20, 2012

Like many, Valley City resident Bonnie Olson has plenty of trips she’d like to take, but can’t always fit in due to high gas prices.

But for now, that isn’t much of a worry.

Olson had her name drawn as the winner of the grand prize of the Times-Record’s $1,000 Free Gas Giveaway and won $250 gift cards to the Valley Service, Stop and Go, Dakota Plains and Brothers III gas stations in Valley City.

“This is really going to be nice, because now my gas is paid for,” Olson said.
