Blonde on the Prairie: Seeking A Sunbird

February 1, 2013

I am on a quest to find out. Maybe you, the Valley City Times Record readers can assist me.

I was the passenger as that husband of mine drove us home. Lately we’ve been traveling on short trips to and fro so not to get depressed. We are living proof that if you just keep moving your mind can’t hijack your joy. While he drives – I wonder. Bet you never knew I did that, did ya?

The Valley City Fire Department will hold their annual smoker Friday evening at the Veterans of Foreign Wars club in Valley City.

The annual fundraiser starts at 6 p.m. and the entrance fee is $10.

“We try to put the money (raised) towards certain equipment we need, smaller items like flashlights and small tools, something that we need that we use quite often,” Fire Chief Gary Retterath said. “Just so we can keep up with the equipment, make sure we have the equipment we need.”

During the smoker, the VCFD does raffles and sells bacon, ham, groceries and guns.

City Hosts Dairy Cow College

February 1, 2013

“What is man without the beasts? If all the beasts were gone, man would die from a great loneliness of spirit. For whatever happens to the beats also happens to the man. All things are connected. Whatever befalls the earth also befalls the sons of the earth.”

The words were written by a North American Indian and posted on the gate of a large beef ranch. Dr. Gerald Stokka, veterinarian and North Dakota State University Extension livestock stewardship expert, used it as an example of why dairy farmers need to practice good stewardship during the regional Dairy Cow College.

Central Cass Stifles No. 4 Raiders

February 1, 2013

CASSELTON — For the last two years, the No. 4 Maple Valley High School girls basketball team has operated like a well-oiled machine.
The formula essentially comes down to Rylee Nudell setting the tone with plenty of points in the paint, then getting a bit of assistance from a deep supporting cast.
But Thursday at Central Cass, the home Squirrels threw a wrench into the equation, putting Nudell at a major size disadvantage, then keeping her guards from getting open looks in a 54-34 loss for the Raiders.
