Blonde on the Prairie: Recognize Autumn with a Sweater

September 21, 2012

I woke up and for some odd reason I could only talk in a British accent. I’m a mimicker and mimickers many times mimic other distinctive dialects. When I want to sound harsh I break out my best Russian. I pucker my face and make my forehead purposefully furrow. Though most Russians are very kind people, their language comes across as a bit harsh. “Please. Take garrrr-bage out now,” I mimic like I mean it and my name is Svetlana rather than Jodi. The real Russians in my life call me “Jodichka.” That can never sound harsh because it’s so endearing.

September 19, 2012

TOWER CITY — As the season has progressed for the Valley City High School volleyball team, sophomore Clarissa Olson has found herself in a variety of spots on the court.
But she's making the most of it, coming up with key kills up front but also getting crucial digs to help out defensively.
"She is coming around so much," Valley City coach Katy Van Dyke said. "She's young and she's been told what she needs to do. ... She soaks up that information and she uses it, then goes out there and does it."
