Floods and Droughts

March 22, 2013

After two recent years of record-breaking floods in the area, it may seem like the future of Valley City looks very wet, but according to two local women, a drought may be just as likely, although predictions can change rapidly.
World Water Day is observed March 22 as an effort to raise awareness on water issues. Jean Legge, former science teacher at Litchville Marion High School, and local water advocate Madeline Luke, both say that while the future of water in the area may be uncertain, the area should prepare for extreme weather events — whether it's a flood or drought.

Sheriff's Department Could Have New Home

March 20, 2013

After a season of controversy between Barnes County officials and Valley City, county commissioners have elected to move forward with negotiations on a lease agreement for new offices for the Barnes County Sheriff's Department.
The sheriff's new home will likely be the old USDA building located off Winter Show Road. With an annual lease of $17,820 per-year and the costs for installing new technology for the building, the move will cost significantly more than staying in the Valley City Law Enforcement Center where the sheriff's department is currently located.

UCLA, with no Adams, playing Minnesota in Austin

March 19, 2013

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — The UCLA Bruins now have until Friday to try and adapt to life without their second leading scorer before playing Minnesota in the South Regional of the NCAA tournament.

Freshman Jordan Adams broke his right foot in the Pac-12 tournament semifinals, and the Bruins (25-9) lost to Oregon in the championship game with no time to prepare and Adams watching from the bench wearing a boot.

The 11-time national champion Bruins still earned a No. 5 seed and will play 11th-seeded Minnesota (20-12).
