Bill Cruff of Rogers grew a 31 pound head of cabbage over the growing season. He planted the cabbage he got from Bettin’s in March, and in September, he found the biggest head of cabbage he’s ever grown—what he calls a “mammoth cabbage—in his garden.
Cruff said he plans to give the cabbage to the food pantry, but not before bringing it to the Sheyenne Care Center to show the residents. He plans to wheel it around in a wheelchair.

Hi-Liners sweep Wahpeton in regional play-in match

September 25, 2012

Before the Valley City High School tennis team took the court in Monday's Eastern Dakota Conference tournament play-in match with Wahpeton Monday, the players on the team had a meeting by themselves.
It was a meeting that senior Ricky Paulson admitted got him a little emotional, as he thought about what could be the seniors' last match. But by the end, the Hi-Liners were all business.
"We knew what we had to get done," Paulson said.
Get it done, they did, as the Hi-Liners swept Wahpeton 5-0 to advance to the EDC regional team tournament Thursday in Grand Forks.

September 24, 2012

LINTON, N.D. – The Maple Valley/Enderlin football team lost twice last year to Linton HMB. The first time was the Falcons' homecoming game, the second, a regional semifinal.
So Friday night, when the Falcons tore open the fourth quarter with two unanswered touchdowns and three big defensive stops to win 24-12, it was what several spectators called "priceless."
"It is priceless, it is," coach Brett Kapaun said after receiving hugs from parents who traveled hours to the game. "What does 'beyond feel pretty good' sound like?"
