Music? Check. Vendors? Check. Awesome location? Check.
As first-time festival organizers go, Diana Forsberg is moving toward a success with the first Annual VCSU Earth Day Festival kicking off at Medicine Wheel Park Wednesday at 6 p.m.
Forsberg, a Fisheries and Wildlife major who began classes at VCSU last summer, has been planning the event from the ground up since February.
By the second inning of the second game of a home double header with Mayville State University Sunday, the Valley City State University softball team had seen plenty of Ashley VandeVeen.
VandeVeen, Mayvilleâ€™s starting pitcher, had already pitched seven innings to the Vikingsâ€™ lineup, six in a 5-1 game one loss and a scoreless first inning.
So in that second inning, the Vikings knew what to expect and entered at-bats looking for a hit from the get-go.

In earlier times, wine was used as a beverage and also as a medicine for a variety of ailments.
A couple of years ago, my husband and I decided to learn how to make wine at home using the apples from the tree in our backyard. Soon we had a chemistry experiment going on in our basement.
Whenever we went downstairs, we could smell the distinctive aroma of fermentation as the sugar was converted to alcohol.
Our first attempt at wine did not result in a vinegar-flavored concoction, so that was good.
Several dozen turned out for the Annual Volunteer Appreciation Tea Banquet at the Sheyenne Care Center on Thursday.
The annual event sponsored by the Mercy Healthcare Foundation, Faith in Action of Mercy Hospital and the Sheyenne Care Center honors the valiant efforts, both big and small, of the many healthcare volunteers in the area who work hard just to make anotherâ€™s life a little better.
â€śThere is no greater gift that anyone can give, than to give of your life and your time,â€ť said Mercy Hospital Director Keith Heuser who spoke briefly to the banquet crowd.
Time to stop and take a deep breath. On the Move 2012 wrapped up on April 15 after three and a half months of encouraging diet, exercise and healthy lifestyle decisions among residents in Barnes County, and organizers report the program has had its biggest year to date.
â€śIâ€™d say it was a huge success. We had the largest membership weâ€™ve ever had,â€ť said Andrea Winter of the Young Peopleâ€™s Healthy Heart Program, an On the Move Partner.
As a lifelong gymnast, Valley Cityâ€™s Taylor Johnson is no stranger to pulling off a routine.
But entering this weekend, the USA Gymnastics Level 8 athlete had a few butterflies.
Rather than a small competition at one of the numerous gyms around North Dakota, sheâ€™ll be taking the floor at the Minneapolis Convention Center for the USAG Region 4 Championships.
â€śIâ€™m probably just going to get a good experience out of it,â€ť Johnson, 13, said. â€śItâ€™d be cool if I placed.â€ť
Itâ€™s a trip that only a handful of members of the Valley Twisters have ever taken.
