County Makes Two Board Appointments

September 19, 2012

The Barnes County Commission met Tuesday and among other things, appointed David Vareberg to the Barnes County Weed Board and Andre DeLorme to the Barnes County Park Board.

About 10 months ago DeLorme, a VCSU professor, was a possible pick for the Barnes County Water Resource District Board, and was supported by Commissioner Phil Leitner.

Commissioner Cindy Schwehr said she supported DeLorme for the park board.
“I really like him,” she said. “He’s passionate about that river... I like him, I’ve worked with some of the kids he teaches, they like him, he’s just a likable guy.”

Over 400 runners compete in Jansen Invite

September 18, 2012

After taking an early lead in the girls 4K varsity race at the Bill Jansen Invitational this weekend, Langdon Area High School junior Kennedy Rude was only leery of one thing — the end.
"I got kind of nervous because I've been out-sprinted at the end before," Rude, the No. 2 ranked Class B runner in the state, said. "Today, I wasn't going to let that happen."
Instead, she maintained her pace and her lead all the way to the end of the race at Bjornson Park Golf Course, finishing in 16:03, two seconds ahead of her closest competitor.
