County Resumes 9-1-1 Plans

January 9, 2013

Barnes County Commissioners voted to send notice to Valley City regarding termination of the existing 9-1-1 contract during their regular meeting on Jan. 8.

According to State’s Attorney, Lee Grossman, the old contract, which dates from the 1990s, needed to be updated regardless of whether the 9-1-1 system is taken over by Barnes County.

The current contract, as it is written, will end on July 16.

Commissioners also considered pay and benefits for city employed 9-1-1 dispatchers who may become county employees if Barnes County takes over day-to-day operations of the 9-1-1 system.

WEST FARGO — There are a nights a team just finds its rhythm early and in Tuesday’s 80-49 loss to West Fargo, the Valley City High School basketball team was on the wrong end of the scenario.
On their home court, the Packers scored 15 points in the first four minutes, and never let up, shooting 62 percent from the 3-point line and finishing 10-12 from long distance in the first half.

VCHS Girls Get 1st Loss

January 9, 2013

WEST FARGO — For the first month of the season, the Valley City High School girls basketball team was tested in plenty of ways. Overtime. Large comebacks.
But after a 68-47 loss Tuesday at West Fargo High School, the previously undefeated Hi-Liners faced their toughest challenge yet — the defending state runner-up.
Though the Hi-Liner girls opened the game with a point-for-point run with the Packers, a lack of scoring late in the first half kept Valley City from winning their seventh straight to start the season.
