July 20, 2012

There are no losers in Valley City’s Hunger Free North Dakota Garden Project.

Low-income residents get fresh local fruit and vegetables for their tables, and gardeners with an excess of produce have an appreciative recipient for the surplus.

Post 60 clinches 3 seed at Sectional tourney

July 20, 2012

Entering Thursday's double header with Harwood, the Valley City Post 60 American Legion baseball team wasn't too concerned about getting the sweep.
Instead, the team was focused solely on the first game, a 14-4 win in five innings that clinched the No.3 seed in next week's Section 1 tournament in Lidgerwood.
"We kind of had to win and stay out of Wahpeton's bracket," said Valley City infielder Josh Gilbertson.
It was a victory that kept the team from dwelling on a 9-0 no-hit loss in the second game, which largely used the team's reserves.

The North Dakota Stockmen’s Association’s reward fund for two cases of livestock shootings in the state has risen from a combined $2,000 to $14,100.
