When Will This End

This week I chose the Korn song "When Will This End" in regards to the winter weather that is here. Just when it appears that it will end, it snows, and they extend the warmup another few days. The light is at the end of the tunnel with 62 the advertised high on Saturday. Pretty please make that be the case.

In the mean time I've been continuing to find other stories to fill up my time. This past week I interviewed and wrote a story about a BHS graduate who ran in the Boston Marathon. I also covered Dakota College at Bottineau's 5k. I did a DCB recruit and wrote a story about an All-American. I also photographed the Bottineau school's choir concert entitled "Time Warp."

This week I should be going down to Minot to catch the DCB softball team (weather permitting), but beyond that I still don't see any home games in the are for another week at least.

I have a few pictures to share.

Back in the Saddle

Aerosmith's hit "Back in the Saddle" accurately depicts this comeback blog after a month's hiatus. I have been without anything of significance to share for the past month, so I just haven't posted in that long. There is still feet of snow on the ground outside, so this might be the only post in April as well.

I have a few pictures to share.

Westhope-Newburg-Bottineau senior Rylee Lodoen catches for pitcher Ashlyn Huber during warmups last Thursday.

A herd of deer stare at me down the road where they searched for food last Thursday near Roth.
