PA, Doctor Have Problems with Mercy Plan

February 13, 2013

Valley City doctor Madeline Luke and Physician’s Assistant Russ Kaufmann have problems with a plan by Mercy Hospital to end use of physician’s assistants in the hospital and provide 24-hour, seven days a week emergency room coverage by a doctor through a contract with an out-of-state company.

Dr. Luke, who works as a doctor three days per week at the Sanford Clinic, said Tuesday, “I’m concerned we will have a variety of physicians come through with no local ties” once the contract takes effect.

February 13, 2013

Area ice fishermen have a much better year for the popular winter sport than they did last year, and they’ll get a chance to participate in a derby this weekend at Lake Ashtabula.

The new owners at Ashtabula Crossing are gearing up for their first annual ice fishing tournament this weekend.

Patty Hoff, who owns the resort and restaurant located at the East Lake Ashtabula crossing with her husband Scott and sister Mary Jean Cuffe, said, “we’ve had lots of people requesting to have tournament here, so we did.”

February 13, 2013

Over the last two years, Valley City High School boys basketball coach Scott Hurlimann has watched his team play numerous games where they were close, but couldn't quite put the finishing touches on an Eastern Dakota Conference win.
But Tuesday at the Hi-Liner Activity Center, the team made the hump look more like a speed bump, beating Devils Lake 74-58 in a two-point EDC game. It was the team's first conference win since the 2010-2011 season.

Pressure-based Runs Get Packers Past VCHS Girls

February 13, 2013

The way Valley City High School girls basketball coach Jim McDaniel looked at it, his team had two issues in Tuesday night's 67-46 loss to No. 2 West Fargo.
"Two tough runs," he said, referring to both an 18-0 first half run and a 16-2 run early in the second half. "Against good teams, we can't allow them to have runs like that."
Both runs had a few commonalities. One, they broke open the score to keep Valley City from getting too close. Two, they both started when West Fargo went into a full-court press.
