Those who have been itching to get out in the fluffy stuff can dust off their cross country skis, snowshoes and ice skates to take part in ski races, hikes, snow sculpting, broomball and snow soccer.

Garage fire blankets north VC with smoke

March 1, 2012

A fire under the engine of a car on 8th Avenue Northwest is believed to be the culprit behind the large plumes of smoke that blanketed the north end of town Thursday evening.

A residential garage was filled with flames, which were quickly knocked down by the Valley City Fire Department, but plumes of acrid smoke billowed from the structure even after the flames had dissipated.

"(The resident) was here, and the garage door was open when the neighbors started to see smoke," said Fire Chief Gary Retterath.

VCSU baseball hoping to play to its potential

March 1, 2012

As far as Valley City State University baseball coach Casey Olney is concerned, his team can match up with almost anybody on its schedule.
“We have enough talent to compete with the teams we’re playing against,” Olney said. “We just need to play well.”
The Vikings started their season last weekend with a four-game series at the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome in Minneapolis. The Vikings lost a pair of games to University of Minnesota — Crookston and split two with St. John’s (Minn.) University.
“We started 1-3 which is disappointing,” Olney said. “We just need to play a little bit better.”
