Tech Students Cycle Through Projects

September 17, 2012

It has been weeks since the new press boxes have been mounted on the stands at Hannah Field, the home of the Valley City Hi-Liners. The boxes were built by students at the Sheyenne Valley Area Career and Tech Center as a project for last year’s construction class, and at the SVACTC Board meeting, Director Jeff Bopp said they are not done with them yet.

“We’ll be doing another small project there,” Bopp said.

USDA Tours VC Schools

September 17, 2012

A representative from the U.S. Department of Agriculture said that Valley City Public Schools has not only successfully positioned itself for new federal guidelines for school meals, but that the school’s new wellness policy and other initiatives go above and beyond what the government expects from a school lunch program.

“Where were you when my kids were in school?” USDA Regional Special Nutrition Programs Director Darlene Sanchez asked VCPS Food Service Director Sue Milender.

Blonde on the Prairie: Take the Time to Wonder

September 14, 2012

It usually happens when I’m the passenger in a car. It also shows itself when I’m quietly waiting to be called in to an appointment. The worst time is right before I’m ready to fall asleep. Wonder. Quite frankly, wonder appears most everywhere I go during my day. I don’t invite it along and just like a wood tick it attaches itself to me and comes along for the ride. It shows itself when I don’t really want it to.

Pamida Sale Ending, Remodeling to Start

September 14, 2012

The liquidation sale at Pamida will end Saturday, and the store will be closed for a week starting Sunday as remodeling goes into full swing to convert Pamida to a Shopko Hometown store.

The store will re-open Sept. 23, selling consumables, such as health and beauty items, over-the-counter medication, beverages, snacks and candy.
The remainder of Valley City’s store will not be fully-stocked when it opens again as the apparel and home departments will still need to be converted.

Every year, the Valley City High School cross country team hosts the Bill Jansen Invitational meet, and one thing never changes — the size.

This year's race takes place 11 a.m. Saturday at the Bjornson Park Golf Course.
Over 500 runners from 30 schools across the state are signed up to race in the event, which runs junior high and junior varsity races as well.

Strong Start Not Enough for LMM volleyball

September 14, 2012

MONTPELIER, N.D. — With only a handful of players with significant varsity experience and five with no varsity experience entering the season, it'd be easy to dismiss the Litchville-Marion/Montpelier volleyball team.
But even with an 0-10 record, it's a team that first-year coach Ryan Nelson believes the girls are onto something, even if the record isn't showing it.
"To come out the way we are playing, it's awesome," Nelson said. "We don't have a win yet, but we've gone four sets a couple of times now with teams that are supposed to be top dogs in our district.
