Annual Sibley Days to be Held All Day Saturday

June 26, 2012

The normally small and quaint lakeside town of Sibley will be busier with locals participating in games and activities Saturday during Sibley Days. Ruth Eberle, who helps coordinate the event, said she hopes everyone can make it for a day of family fun.

The annual event, which will take place at the Sibley crossing, will begin at 10 a.m. with a craft and flea market outside The Fishtank, a bar and restaurant in Sibley. Eberle said anyone can participate in the market.

“You can show up that morning and that’s just fine,” she said. “You don’t have to register.”

Stricklin’s passion for sports spans generations

June 26, 2012

At 6 feet, 6 inches tall, Ty Buttrey stands well over his grandmother, Valley City’s Jacquette “Ketta” Stricklin.
Side by side, Ketta’s head hardly reaches her grandson’s shoulder.
“He didn’t get the height from me,” she jokes.
His response is more matter-of-fact.
“I got the athletic ability from you,” he quickly responds.
Buttrey, who graduated from high school earlier this month in North Carolina, was ranked by Baseball America as the #38 prospect in the Major League Baseball draft, which took place earlier this month.

SWC: No Phone Calls

June 25, 2012

BISMARCK, N.D. – In what Richard Betting, of People to Save the Sheyenne, calls a blow to government transparency in North Dakota, the State Water Commission will no longer allow citizens to call in and listen to SWC meetings.

David Laschkewitsch, director of administrative services for the SWC, said Friday that there are several reasons for the move, mainly that the commission’s phone technology is not conducive to the process.

“We have no interest in hiding anything,” he said. “That is not our desire: to make it more difficult.”

State Engineer Has Final Call on DL Outlet

June 25, 2012

BISMARCK, N.D. – The fate of the Sheyenne and Red River Valleys are in one man’s hands: State Engineer Todd Sando.

On Friday, Richard Betting of the People to Save the Sheyenne and Valley City City Commissioner Madeline Luke of the Ad Hoc Downstream Group presented testimony to Sando at a hearing on the permit that would allow the newly constructed outlet on the east end of Devils Lake to operate. The outlet would drain into the Sheyenne River, which feeds into the Red River of the North and runs into Canada.

Cancer Survivors Join Together

June 25, 2012

For some it’s a chance to remember, others a reason to celebrate, but every step taken at the Barnes County Relay for Life was a step toward finding a cure for cancer.

“The world with less cancer and more birthdays gets closer with every Relay for Life event,” said emcee Paul Leier during the opening ceremony.

Funds raised from the event go to the American Cancer Society, which sponsors Relay for Life, to find cures and fight back against cancer, team developer Carol Grenz said.

Babe Ruth sweeps double header

Late rally gets Post 60 past Galchutt

June 24, 2012

As the clock passed 9 p.m. Friday and darkness started to replace the natural light at Charlie Brown Memorial Field, the Valley City Post 60 baseball team had two goals.
First — Get through the fifth inning of its second game that night with Galchutt. Second — Scrap a few runs together and get the win.
By the time the game finished roughly 20 minutes later, both tasks were complete as the team, which played as the visitor on the score board in the second game, won 4-3 after scoring three runs in the top of the fifth.

Grandson of VC resident signs with Redsox

June 24, 2012

There’s quite an age difference between long-time Valley City resident Jacquette “Ketta” Stricklin, 84, her grandson, Ty Buttrey, a recent high school graduate in North Carolina.
Besides genetics, the two have at least one thing in common — an uncanny ability on the diamond.
Stricklin celebrates her 85th birthday Saturday, and Ty Buttrey will be among those making the trip up to celebrate.

Post 60 splits double header with Great Bend, Wahpeton

June 24, 2012

The Valley City Post 60 American Legion baseball team plays plenty of double headers throughout its season, but Thursday’s home games at Charlie Brown Memorial Field had a slight twist on the formula.
Rather than playing one opponent twice, Post 60 beat Great Bend 6-2, then immediately played Wahpeton in a 12-0 loss.
“It’s kind of like playing in a tournament,” said Valley City coach Jason Beilke. “It’s two games in a row with two different teams.”
The two games, both of which were rescheduled from earlier in the season, ended up being played differently.
