VC's John Halgrimson athletically influenced by brother Joey

April 27, 2012

When it comes to his choices in athletics, Valley City Junior High School’s John Halgrimson is quick to point fingers. But not in a bad way.
In many cases, he’s just following the example set by his older brother, VCHS senior Joey Halgrimson.
“Most sports that I do are because my brother was in them,” Halgrimson said.  “I like doing what my brother does.”
Thursday at Lokken Field,  Halgrimson was among the top athletes at the Valley City Junior High Track Meet at Lokken Field.

April 27, 2012

The Valley City High School softball team scored three runs in the final two innings of a win at Grand Forks Central Thursday.

The Hi-Liners went ahead 3-0 in the second inning, getting key RBI from Allison Baasch (on a two-RBI single) and a sacrifice bunt by Jasmine Stevens.
Amanda Tangen had a leadoff walk in the third inning, then stole second and was driven in by Dierra Diegel to take a 4-0 lead.

ND outdoors: Outlook good for local wildlife in 2012

April 27, 2012

As far as I can tell, few people are complaining out loud about the early arrival of spring in 2012.
Since 2009 it’s almost felt like we’d skipped a season, or replaced spring with “flood” season.
This year, it started to feel like spring in February and March and it’s almost as if fall never left.
Regardless, the early spring has been welcomed by humans, fish and wildlife alike.
