Does wine have health benefits?

April 23, 2012

In earlier times, wine was used as a beverage and also as a medicine for a variety of ailments.

A couple of years ago, my husband and I decided to learn how to make wine at home using the apples from the tree in our backyard. Soon we had a chemistry experiment going on in our basement.

Whenever we went downstairs, we could smell the distinctive aroma of fermentation as the sugar was converted to alcohol.

Our first attempt at wine did not result in a vinegar-flavored concoction, so that was good.

Banquet honors medical volunteers

April 23, 2012

Several dozen turned out for the Annual Volunteer Appreciation Tea Banquet at the Sheyenne Care Center on Thursday.

“There is no greater gift that anyone can give, than to give of your life and your time,” said Mercy Hospital Director Keith Heuser who spoke briefly to the banquet crowd.

VC's Johnson competing at regional gymnastics meet

April 20, 2012

As a lifelong gymnast, Valley City’s Taylor Johnson is no stranger to pulling off a routine.
But entering this weekend, the USA Gymnastics Level 8 athlete had a few butterflies.
Rather than a small competition at one of the numerous gyms around North Dakota, she’ll be taking the floor at the Minneapolis Convention Center for the USAG Region 4 Championships.
“I’m probably just going to get a good experience out of it,” Johnson, 13, said. “It’d be cool if I placed.”
It’s a trip that only a handful of members of the Valley Twisters have ever taken.
