Vikings upset by S.D. Mines and Tech

September 30, 2012

Every year in football, the center snaps a ball to his quarterback hundreds, if not thousands of times.
But as simple as it seemed late in Saturday's 39-28 loss to NCAA Division II South Dakota School of Mines and Technology, something went wrong for the Valley City State University football team.
The Vikings were in the middle of a drive following a touchdown by the Hardrockers that put VCSU down 32-28.

Homecoming win boosts VCHS to top of region

September 30, 2012

Of all the games a football team plays each year, there is rarely a non-playoff matchup that draws a crowd better than a homecoming game. But in the same vein, all excitement of the weekend comes with the possibility of distracting players.
But in Friday night's 40-13 homecoming win over Lisbon, the Valley City High School football team showed that it was all business.

State Seeks Input on Teachers

September 28, 2012

The North Dakota Department of Instruction (DPI) is asking for all interested people to provide input on the new proposed guidelines for the professional evaluations of teachers and principals.

After several districts across the state failed to meet the goals of the No Child Left Behind Act, the state applied for a waiver from the act.
Submitting the waiver means the state must have established uniform guidelines for the evaluations. A DPI advisory committee worked from October, 2011, to July to develop the proposed guidelines.

Blonde on the Prairie: A Posse of Goats to Vote

September 28, 2012

I begin this prose in quite a conundrum.
Trying to find peace but haven’t yet found some.
I begin every morning alive with the news.
CNN, FOX –they give me the blues.

I’m just the blonde, living on the prairie-
But toot’in my own horn (which is really quite scary!)
I’m a woman with hormones and I have a gun.
Bring me a militant and I’ll get ‘er done.

My posse is housewives – women of strength.
Proverbs 31 proves they’d earn “General” as ranks.
Each and every one of them is as patriotic as me.
So we wonder how dumb our elected can be.

MV Volleyball Swept By Kindred

September 28, 2012

Entering Thursday's match with Kindred, the Maple Valley High School volleyball team knew one of the Vikings' biggest threats was going to be Kellie Schmit.
"She's a very good player," Maple Valley coach Jessica Theurer said. "We just had to do our best to attack so they couldn't set her up."
It was a strategy that worked at times, but wasn't quite as potent as the Raiders hoped in their 25-15, 25-21, 25-13 loss to Kindred.
