Bismarck‚Äôs Dakota Wizards basketball team, a developmental league team for the Golden State Warriors, has taken on a new opponent, bullying.
Earlier this month, the Wizards invited Griggs County Central students to their final home game to assist in their game plan to send out the message ‚Äústop bullying now.‚ÄĚ
At the game, students took a pledge to treat people fairly, be inclusive and take action when bullying is happening to others. Additionally, the team highlighted a new North Dakota‚Äôs new anti-bullying law, ‚ÄúCassidy‚Äôs Law‚ÄĚ, which goes in effect this July.

For the past two weeks, I‚Äôve been instructing a course on fly tying and lure making combined with a Fishing 102 of sorts for area youth age 12 to 15 which introduced them to light tackle fishing and the basics of the fly rod. After seeing the world that this generation has grown up in (and I know I‚Äôm starting to sound old) with cell phones, Xboxes, and a multitude of other distractions, I had my concerns that it would be tough to hold their attention. After all, sometimes it takes me, with my short attention span, an entire winter just to decide what lures to make in April.
Each week I close my column with my contact email information. Later, when the inbox dings to signal a new message has arrived, I‚Äôm never certain what the pretense for the email is, but I do enjoy the electronic communication.
¬†Recently a reader took issue with an explanation I previously provided regarding harvest of big fish in the spring prior to the time that either walleyes or northern pike have spawned for the year.

Families--try the unthinkable‚ÄĒgo screen free for an entire week! April 30-May 6 is Screen Free Week. The Young People‚Äôs Healthy Heart Program at Mercy Hospital is inviting any family who would like to go ‚Äėscreen free‚Äô to call them at 845-6456 for more information and ideas.
Why go ‚Äėscreen free‚Äô? The facts are amazing. Students ages 8-18 spend 7 hours each day in front of a screen:
* an average of 4.5 hours watching TV,
*1.5 hours using computers (outside of homework),
*over one hour playing video games.
It doesn‚Äôt take much to get me to wondering. In this case all it took was a song I heard on an AM radio station. Speaking of heard: The name of the song was, ‚ÄúYou can‚Äôt rollerskate in a buffalo herd.‚ÄĚ It was written by a Mr. Roger Miller. I‚Äôm supposing that if there were ever a person deceased that I‚Äôd have liked to have met before they arrived it would have been him. Some of you may know the song and I invite you to hum along as I share a bit of it with you. Here goes:
‚ÄúYou can‚Äôt rollerskate in a buffalo herd.

Temperatures this weekend may be on the cooler side than what people would prefer, but following a strong chance of rain in the area tonight and a cloudy weekend, temps are predicted to be in the upper 60s and 70s next week.
National Weather Service meteorologist Peter Rogers said today would be ‚Äúpretty cloudy for a good chunk of the day‚ÄĚ with overnight thunderstorms moving through around midnight.
‚ÄúMost of the precipitation should move off by morning,‚ÄĚ he said. ‚ÄúThe rest of Saturday looks mainly dry with increasing cloud cover.‚ÄĚ
