As a lifelong gymnast, Valley Cityâ€™s Taylor Johnson is no stranger to pulling off a routine.
But entering this weekend, the USA Gymnastics Level 8 athlete had a few butterflies.
Rather than a small competition at one of the numerous gyms around North Dakota, sheâ€™ll be taking the floor at the Minneapolis Convention Center for the USAG Region 4 Championships.
â€śIâ€™m probably just going to get a good experience out of it,â€ť Johnson, 13, said. â€śItâ€™d be cool if I placed.â€ť
Itâ€™s a trip that only a handful of members of the Valley Twisters have ever taken.
Special to the Times-Record
Bismarckâ€™s Dakota Wizards basketball team, a developmental league team for the Golden State Warriors, has taken on a new opponent, bullying.
Earlier this month, the Wizards invited Griggs County Central students to their final home game to assist in their game plan to send out the message â€śstop bullying now.â€ť
At the game, students took a pledge to treat people fairly, be inclusive and take action when bullying is happening to others. Additionally, the team highlighted a new North Dakotaâ€™s new anti-bullying law, â€śCassidyâ€™s Lawâ€ť, which goes in effect this July.

Sorenson to golf at VCSU
Valley City High School golfer Ben Sorensen has signed a letter of intent to attend Valley City State University and join the Viking golf team, VCSU coach Nathan Stover announced Wednesday night.
Sorenson has been a key member of the Valley City High School golf team lettering every year since eighth grade. During that run he had the second best scoring average on a team that won the 2010 Class B state championship. Sorenson has won two high school tournaments and has nine top-ten finishes.
For the past two weeks, Iâ€™ve been instructing a course on fly tying and lure making combined with a Fishing 102 of sorts for area youth age 12 to 15 which introduced them to light tackle fishing and the basics of the fly rod. After seeing the world that this generation has grown up in (and I know Iâ€™m starting to sound old) with cell phones, Xboxes, and a multitude of other distractions, I had my concerns that it would be tough to hold their attention. After all, sometimes it takes me, with my short attention span, an entire winter just to decide what lures to make in April.
