Motorcyclists Ride for Hospice

July 30, 2012

The expected number of riders was impacted a little by an early harvest. Instead of the 250 or so expected, there were maybe only 200. That’s 200 motorcyclists riding in the Fourth Annual Debbie Gabel Memorial Ride, this past Saturday.

The riders and a raffle for a brand-new Harley-Davidson motorcycle help raise nearly $60,000 for the Thundering Saints Inc. foundation, said ride organizer, Rocky Gabel, husband of the late Debbie for whom the ride and the foundation are dedicated.

July 27, 2012

LIDGERWOOD, N.D. — Prior to Thursday, it had been awhile since the Valley City Post 60 American Legion baseball team had to hit off Wahpeton pitcher Jeremy Bontjes. By Post 60 coach Jason Beilke's count, It had been roughly two years since he pitched against Valley City at the Sectional tournament in 2010.
So much for getting reacquainted.
Bontjes threw a no hitter in Wahpeton's 11-0, five inning win over Post 60 in the semifinals of the Section 1 tournament in Lidgerwood.

Blonde on the Prairie: A Dog Barks the Bill of Rights

July 27, 2012

I am just a humble dog. My name is Shya Ingstad. My home dog country is America. I will defend her.

I see an America where I’m free to be me, Shya Ingstad-an imperfect hound of mixed breed.
