Blonde On The Prairie: Memories of an old-time Easter Bonnet

April 6, 2012

Raise your hand if you knew my mom Pat (Kranz) Larson. She was born in 1930. That’s an important piece of trivia. I think that particular era explains what I’m about to share with you. She escaped her Electric Mobility Scooter and I’m certain was gifted working legs in the sky once she arrived. She’s in Heaven now. Most of you only knew my mom from her scooter days after she had her stroke. She called it her Cadillac. She was the woman who would drive around the town with that extremely decorated electric scooter.

Shaking off the dust: Hi-Liners lose 12-1 in opener against Red River

April 5, 2012

Starting the season off against high level competition isn’t an easy thing to do.
Though the Hi-Liners did what they could in a 12-1 loss to Red River High School in six innings Tuesday, the team left with plenty to work on.
Primarily on the defensive end, where eight players from last season took the field, with only one, pitcher Keely Fogarty, out of her spot from last year.

ND Supreme Court won't block Fighting Sioux name election

April 4, 2012

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota's Supreme Court said Tuesday that voters should decide whether to keep the University of North Dakota's Fighting Sioux nickname before the courts judge whether a pro-nickname law violates the state constitution.

The court's split ruling clears the way for North Dakotans to weigh in on Measure 4, a referendum about whether UND must continue using the nickname and a separate American Indian warrior profile logo.

The measure goes to a statewide vote June 12. If Fighting Sioux supporters lose, UND intends to drop the nickname and logo.

Building on experience: VCHS softball returns plenty of players from last year's state contenders

April 3, 2012

Valley City High School softball coach Jason Lindgren is the first to admit that his team is plenty young.
With only five seniors, there are numerous freshmen and sophomores that contribute to the Hi-Liners’ success.
But what the team may lack in age, the girls make up for in experience.
“You’re counting on a lot of younger people but they, the sophomores for example, have been playing a lot since they were 8th graders, they saw time when they were 7th graders, so they’ve got a lot of varsity experience,” coach Jason Lindgren said. “It’s not new to them.”
