Public Works to Offer Credit Card Option

December 19, 2012

The Valley City City Commission decided Monday to allow a credit card option for Public Works. The decision came after a request made by City Administrator David Schelkoph, who said many customers want the option and it would allow the city to accommodate those who might not be able to pay their bills right away.

After doing some research, Schelkoph and other city employees found that using a credit card reader might not be a huge saving financially, but it would save on time and provide a customer service that commissioners agree is beneficial to everyone.

Hi-Liners' 2nd Half Rally Not Enough vs. West Fargo

December 19, 2012

When the Valley City High School basketball team left the floor for halftime of its 65-54 loss to West Fargo, things seemed somewhat bleak. The Hi-Liners trailed 38-19, allowing double the points they had scored.
But that didn't stop the team from making it a game, as the Hi-Liners scored 13 points in the first six minutes of the second half and limited the Packers' opportunities to get the game within reach.
"The kids came out and played extremely hard in the second half and played defense and we were able to make it a game," VCHS coach Scott Hurlimann said.

For the first 40 minutes of Valley City High School girls basketball team's 63-53 win over Maple Valley Tuesday at the Hi-Liner Activity Center, the Hi-Liners had little trouble finding a good shot.
But, for whatever reason, the team's numerous open looks wouldn't make the short trip off the backboard and through the hoop.
"We had good shot selection and good shooting opportunities the entire game, but it took us a while to get where we could consistently hit some," Valley City coach Jim McDaniel said.
