Opportunity is ‘nocking’ in VC

March 1, 2012

Area youth will soon have a chance to string up their bows and channel their inner Robin Hood. The Valley City Parks and Recreation Department is once again offering a youth archery class for kids ages 10 to 18 in the basement of the City Auditorium.

“We’ve got a 10-yard range for beginners and a 20-yard range for more advanced shooters,” said Neil Pederson, Barnes County Wildlife Club member and Archery Club Chairman. “We’ve been running (the range) for about 4 years now.”

Wild month for cops

March 1, 2012

An altercation at the Valley City VFW Club after midnight on Sunday morning left a Valley City Police Officer on paid administrative leave and wrapped up a wild month for local law enforcement in February.

Officer Randy Schmidt, a 7-year veteran of the VCPD, was off duty when he was involved in an incident with an unidentified woman, but had been working with four other off-duty officers providing security at a Mixed Martial Arts event in the city that evening.

“The accusation is that he physically assaulted a subject at the VFW,” said interim Police Chief Mark McDonald.
