VCHS Boys Get 1st EDC Win in 2 Seasons

February 13, 2013

Over the last two years, Valley City High School boys basketball coach Scott Hurlimann has watched his team play numerous games where they were close, but couldn't quite put the finishing touches on an Eastern Dakota Conference win.
But Tuesday at the Hi-Liner Activity Center, the team made the hump look more like a speed bump, beating Devils Lake 74-58 in a two-point EDC game. It was the team's first conference win since the 2010-2011 season.

Pressure-based Runs Get Packers Past VCHS Girls

February 13, 2013

The way Valley City High School girls basketball coach Jim McDaniel looked at it, his team had two issues in Tuesday night's 67-46 loss to No. 2 West Fargo.
"Two tough runs," he said, referring to both an 18-0 first half run and a 16-2 run early in the second half. "Against good teams, we can't allow them to have runs like that."
Both runs had a few commonalities. One, they broke open the score to keep Valley City from getting too close. Two, they both started when West Fargo went into a full-court press.

VC Restaurant Will Soon Serve Mexican Food

February 12, 2013

Valley City’s Another Time restaurant will soon serve authentic and homemade Mexican food from owner and head cook Abel Turrubiates.

Turrubiates, a native-born Mexican, said he will eventually call his restaurant Mi Pueblito, which means “my little town.”

“The reason I call it my little town, is Valley City is a little town, and I have my children who live here, and I thought of adopting his little town as ‘my little town,’” he said.

Turrubiates took over the business from former owner Tanya Hurlimann, who recently decided to move to Florida.

Schlaufman: Many Thanks, Barnes County

February 11, 2013

So long and farewell

By Scott Schlaufman

A few months ago, I went up to Grafton.
It was a unique trip for many reasons. The Valley City High School football team was playing there in the semifinals of the AA playoffs, the day after a large snow storm hit the area.
The field itself had been plowed early that morning, but only the field, plus about a foot beyond, leaving the bleacher-less Valley City crowd to packed along the sidelines.
As the game went on, one of the girls from the school turns and asks me, "Scott- why aren't you cheering?"

blonde on the prairie: About Girls With Guns

February 11, 2013

“Girls with guns.” That’s what my shirt says. I got it from a girl with guns. The shirt makes me feel protected. A friend of mine taught me how to shoot so the saying on my shirt wouldn’t be a lie. Feeling safe is what I told that husband of mine was the most important thing before we got married.

I’m not mentally ill and neither are my many friends with guns. I’m guessing if the government attempts to take any more control of things they have no business peeping in to, perhaps mental illness will be the norm. In the slightest of ways it is already happening.
