Web exclusive: EMV softball playing for state title

June 1, 2012

WEST FARGO — When Enderlin/Maple Valley coach Neva Hamre was asked about a few of her players following Friday's 25-4 win over Grafton in the Class B State Semifinals, she was at a loss for words.
"I just don't really know what to say about them," she said. "We're just — I don't know — it doesn't seem hard. We're just doing what we do."
What they do, and continued to do at the second day of the inaugural Class B State Softball Tournament, is win.

Blonde On The Prairie: Don’t give ugly a voice

June 1, 2012

The chaplain at my work witnessed it. I came to my office and stood in the doorway of the conference room where most of my co-workers gathered.
“May I have your attention please? I have an announcement to make,” I announced in my best announcement voice.

Strong start lifts Falcons in state opener

June 1, 2012

WEST FARGO — All season long, Enderlin/Maple Valley softball coach Neva Hamre knew her top two pitchers were sophomore Kaylee Johnson and junior Cassie Pautz. But with the success Johnson had throughout the season, Pautz didn’t log a single pitch at the varsity level.
Until Thursday, that was, when she took to the circle in the Falcons’ 18-2 win over Pembina County North to open the Class B state softball tournament at Elmwood Park in West Fargo.
“I only pitched two JV games, so it was a little nerve wracking,” Pautz said.

May is Stroke Awareness Month, and City- County Health District and the Center for Tobacco Prevention and Control Policy (the Center) are using the opportunity to underscore how the connection between cigarette smoke and stroke reinforces the need for comprehensive smoke-free policies.
