Aug. 31 marks the Valley City Hi-Liners home-opener against the Dickinson Trinity Titans at 7 p.m. at Hanna Field. The game will also be the VC season opener after last Friday's game with Carrington was rained out.
The Hi-Liner Boosters will be throwing a free-will offering hamburger and brat tailgate party prior to the game at 5:15 p.m.
"The Hi-Liner Booster Club will also be conducting a membership drive during this event," said Hi-Liner Activities Director Dan Larson. "These memberships help fund the projects that give back to the youth in our community."
Does anyone in Valley City remember the tale of the trucker who, when traveling east on I-94 through a snowstorm, gave a ride to the ghost of a dead girl who died in a blizzard?
Or can anyone in Fort Ransom recall the tale of â€śBeaver the Hermit,â€ť who was framed for a murder he did not commit but managed to elude the Sheriff and his posse by hiding out in the Sheyenne River Valley?
I like to play â€śrememberâ€ť with myself for one day when Iâ€™m not able to I will no longer have a game to play. I believe my mind is capable of many things that Iâ€™ve not even tapped in to yet. Phenomenally I know that I have the power to change my mood. Iâ€™ve tried it, tested it and found it most successful. For instance, I can be driving in traffic on I-94 when some whipper-snapper begins tailgating me. Iâ€™m not talking about the kind of tailgating where he is back there somewhere. Iâ€™m talking about the kind where heâ€™s either trying to kiss the bumper on the outside of my car or the one in it.
George Gaukler and his partners in Straus Mall Property LLC are well on their way to turning the long-time downtown Valley City landmark back into a centerpiece of the business community.
Gaukler bought the mall in October of 2011 after it lost its last tenant.
By November of 2011 Gaukler had lined up the first new tenant, Professional Eye Care, and had begun expensive renovations.
Gaukler said Thursday â€śthe spaces are rented to a lawyer and an architect, and the mall is starting to fill up.â€ť
