If you hear the roar of thunder, youâ€™d better head for cover.
Valley City Thunder Football starts its 13th season in 2013.

Editor's Note: The recent arrests of two Valley City residents for possessing a sellable amount of methampethamine brought attention to the prevalence of drug use in the area. For the next couple of weeks, reporter Bonnie Jo Hanson will examine drug use in and around Valley City and its effects on the community. The first two articles detail the two most common abused drugs locally, methamphetamine and marijuana. In future articles, Hanson will explore what it's like to be an addict, the financial and personal costs of using illegal drugs, and what might done to slow the epidemic.
