VC has another successful Rally

June 18, 2012

If Valley City seemed a bit more populated this weekend, it’s probably because visitors and high school reunion-goers joined Valley City residents as they soaked up at this weekend’s annual Rally in the Valley.

The weather was pleasant but windy at times for the celebration hosted by the Valley City Area Chamber of Commerce. The weekend was jam packed with activities for all ages in Valley City.

Babe Ruth takes 6th in own tourney

June 17, 2012

The Valley City Babe Ruth baseball team didn’t necessarily play badly in its final game of the annual Pizza Corner Classic.
The problem in its 10-0 loss to Steele afternoon was that a few unlucky breaks added up and left the team with a 6th place finish in its own tournament.
The two-day tournament wrapped up Sunday at Charlie Brown Memorial Field and featured teams from southwestern North Dakota.
“We had a snowball effect,” said coach Lance Lukes. “We made a mistake, we made another one after that, and it led to a big inning for them.”

Blonde on the Prairie: Carp to carp walleting

June 15, 2012

You’re reading these words so that means you have one. Some of you have more than one because that’s how your mama rolls. You may have had the good one or you could have been stuck with the bad one. Whichever one you got you’ve been affected. This isn’t a riddle though it is beginning to sound like one. Simply, I’m talking about dads.

I figure now is as good a time as any for a little Blonde on the Prairie therapy session. Go ahead and sit down on my couch. Get comfortable if you’d like to.

Shut your eyes and say the word. Ready?

“Dad.”

Goodbye to a Goodfella: Mob informant Henry Hill dead at 69

Hill was an associate in the New York-based Lucchese crime family and testified against mafia members following the theft of $5.8 million from a Lufthansa Airlines vault.

Pitching struggles in Post 60's home opening loss

June 15, 2012

The Valley City Post 60 American Legion baseball team tried plenty of different players on the pitcher’s mound in Thursday’s double header losses to Kindred.
But no matter who was there, the problem was virtually the same — the pitchers struggled to find early strikes and later walked batters after falling behind in counts.
“Leading with the strike and getting ahead right away is big in baseball,” coach Jason Beilke said. “When you’re ahead 0-1, it’s a lot easier than being behind 1-0.”
