Water board tables dam study

April 10, 2012

BALDHILL CREEK, N.D. – The Barnes County Water Resource District Board tabled a discussion on supporting a proposed study for a dry dam on the Baldhill Creek after hearing from several landowners in that area who opposed it.

The Baldhill Creek site and another near Cooperstown were identified last summer in a study conducted by West Fargo-based Moore Engineering as two sites that could retain a significant amount of water from entering Ashtabula Lake, which lies upstream from Valley City, behind the Baldhill Dam.

A delay in the passage of a federal highway bill may put a kink in the city’s plans to finish the Ninth Avenue Northwest reconstruction project in a timely manner.

VCSU golf wins title
The Valley City State University golf team had to share the team title at the Dickinson State Spring Invite Wednesday and Thursday at Heart River Golf Course in Dickinson, but it was history making, no less.
The title, which the Vikings shared with Jamestown College, was the team’s first since the sport returned in 2009.
The Vikings had three golfers finish in the top four, including an individual championship by Taylor Henrickson, who shot a 152. He shared the championship with Jamestown’s Jack Bietz.

Local gymnast does well at state

April 6, 2012

It’s a warm Wednesday afternoon, and six-year-old Rebekah Kauffman is sitting on a couch next to her mother, Misti, at the family’s house in north Valley City.
A bundle of energy, Rebekah isn’t one to keep still for a minute — frequently glancing around for one of her siblings, then laughing and showing off her bright smile.
But as she’s asked questions, goes quiet, opting for quick, one-word answers.
“You don’t have to be this quiet,” Misti tells her. “You’re never this quiet.”
Nor is she that shy.

Vikings' bats, Shaw's pitching help split with Dickinson

April 6, 2012

By almost any measure, Valley City State University pitcher Ryan Shaw kept it simple in Thursday’s 11-2 win over Dickinson State University, the second game of a double header between the teams.
“I was throwing fastballs and curveballs, trying to hit my spots,” Shaw said.
Simple as it sounds, it worked. The Blue Hawks were limited to four hits and two runs, only one earned, helping the Vikings split the first two games of a four game series. Dickinson won Thursday’s series opening game 6-2.
The teams play again today at Charlie Brown Field with a double header starting at noon.
