SDSU joins list of schools to snub Sioux

May 2, 2012

FARGO, N.D. (AP) — The leader of University of North Dakota’s alumni on Tuesday kicked off a campaign to dump the school’s Fighting Sioux nickname by reeling off a list of schools that will no longer schedule UND in certain athletics until the issue is resolved.
Tim O’Keefe, CEO of the UND Alumni Association and Foundation, said neighboring South Dakota State has joined an increasing number of schools to snub the Grand Forks college because of the nickname. Other schools include Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa and Minnesota-Morris.

VCHS softball wins
The Valley City High School softball team had little issue at the plate in a double header sweep of Fargo Davies Tuesday in Fargo.
Over two wins — 5-3 in game one, 15-1 in game two — the Hi-Liners combined for 29 hits, including 20 in the second game.
The Hi-Liners were led by Amanda Tangen, who went 6-9 over the two games.
In the 15-1 win, she went 4-5 at the plate, including two triples. She had four RBI and scored twice in the game.

Seniors Willson, Jacob lead Hi-Liner sprinters

May 2, 2012

Entering her senior season, Valley City High School sprinter Molly Willson knew that her older sister, Morgen, was quite the athlete during her time at VCHS.
What Molly didn’t realize, though, was that Morgen held the school record in the 200 meter dash.
“I didn’t know she held the record until this year,” Molly said.
So when she found out, she made it her goal to make the record her own, a task she hopes to achieve by the end of the season.

Gardening has health benefits

May 2, 2012

As I walked around our backyard, I noticed that our rose bushes and various perennial plants are becoming green and lush. The tulip and daffodil bulbs have sprouted, dotting our landscape with flowers in shades of red and yellow. After our mild winter, I am mapping out our container gardens and flower beds.

Yes, I like growing things. After all, “Garden” is my middle name. I couldn’t resist saying that.
