January 20, 2013

After graduating seven seniors and getting a new coach for this season, the Barnes County North girls basketball team has had plenty of new faces, and with them, a few struggles along the way.

Nudell's 31 Helps MV Get 2nd Straight BCT Title

January 20, 2013

As far as Maple Valley High School coach Jeff Miller is concerned, there are few post players with the offensive skill set of Rylee Nudell.
"When she gets the ball facing the basket, there are not too many people out there who can stop her," Miller said about the freshman, who scored her 1,000th point earlier this month. "She's got an extremely explosive first step, so she can get by that one defender, and if that help-side defense isn't there right away, and even if it is there, she can maneuver herself around them to make the layup, and a lot of times get fouled in the process."

Blonde on the Prairie: A Night in the Life of a Redneck Diabetic

January 18, 2013

I’m not a Catholic nor am I a criminal. Yet here I stand in an invisible confessional bearing my soul. In this life I wish to teach as much as I learn. I learned, for instance, sometime during the flood of 2009 never to set my keys on the shelf in a porta-pottie because it’s really not a shelf at all. If you look closely at the shelves in porta-potties they have a single hole in them. I learned it is not a shelf but rather a urinal. The hole has a purpose. The keys have since been washed. Trust me. I confessed that to you because I appreciate humor.

Audi Assessment Lower Than Hoped

January 18, 2013

The assessment on the City Auditorium came back lower than city officials had hoped, putting plans on hold for selling the building, City Administrator David Schelkoph said Thursday.

Vanguard assessed the building at $178,500, an amount that will delay plans for the city to sell the Audi.

The Valley City City Commission decided in September to sell the Audi to an interested buyer who met the criteria. City commissioners approved one of two plans presented to them in November. Berkel Properties had presented the city with a plan to repurpose the Audi and make it apartment buildings.
