FLPR won in exciting fashion in game one as they defeated the Cards 3 to 2 on a four hit, ten strikout pitching perfOrmance by Nick Smestad. Both teams scored twice in the second inning and were held scoreless until the Flyers got a run across the plate in their half of the sixth to take the win. A.J. Hensel led the Flyer hitters with a pair of hits and two RBI. Cole Solseng followed up in game two surrendering only one bet as the Flyers got a 3 to 0 shutout. Solseng struck out seven Cards enroute to the win. Beau Brunsvold went 2x2 in the game and had an RBI. Sydney Larson hopes to qualify for State once again in the Javelin.

Much to my surprise I have now found out that not all of them leave. I received a phone call from an area farmer who told me of a pair of Bald Eagles that have nested on his property since 2003. Later this summer after the Eaglets hatch out I hope to be making a trip with him to see the THE BUILDING BUT... newest batch of America's grand- est bird of prey. Look for the story , and maybe a picture, sometime in June or July if things work out. As the ice leaves area lakes another pastime will be starting soon. Summer open water fish- ing is jktst around the comer. The coulees and drainages entering Devils Lake will be the first to see the big action as fish migrate upstream to spawn. Local rivers and lakes will be picking up soon as well. Many a big Northern has been taken from the mouths of area rivers as pike travel to and back from their annual spawn. It won't be long now. Spring Turkey and other hunting seasons are also getting underway. The Turkeys have been strutting for a few weeks now and the action will pick up as we enter into May. When spring does arrive in this part of North Dakota, the golf season'will also get underway. Right now it looks like most area courses will be behind schedule. But whatever your spring time outdoor passion is, be patient a couple more weeks, with some luck and sunshine we should be back in business before too long. N.D. YOUTH ATTEND NATIONAL CONFERENCE A delegation of 4-H youth representing North Dakota State University and Sitting Bull College attended the 79th annual National 4-H Conference in Washington, D.C. The North Dakota delegation was among more than 300 youth and adults representing 4-H programs across the country who gathered to exchange ideas, gain knowledge to share at home and develop recommendations to help guide the future of national 4-H youth development pro- grams nationally and in their communities. North Dakota delegates who attended the con- ference from March 28-April 2 were: Megan Ruch and Alicia Widhalm, both of Sargent County; Johnathan Myhre. Pembina County; Blaine Novak. Walsh County; and Derrick Murphy. Mercedes Ridley, Samantha Ridley and Thomas J. Ridley Jr.. all of Sitting Bull College. This is the first year Sitting Bull College sent a delegation to the conference, and seeing how 4-H differs from state to state." Thins year's 'cOnference theme, "Pathways to Nov~iI~ said. ::'~'~" "~" Progress: Transforming Tomorrow." reinforced "I think that 1 really enjoyed seeing the sights the rich history of 4-H as the U.S. Department of Agriculture's flagship youth development organ- ization. Through citizenship excursions, conference sessions, focus groups and roundtable discus- sions, delegates explored specific objectives of President Obama's administration and developed ideas of how 4-H programs can support these objectives and develop young people to meet the challenges of the future. The recommendations were delivered in the closing message to Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack and other USDA and 4-H officials during the USDA Assembly. "One of my favorite parts of the trip was meeting all the people from across the country all over D.C. and meeting new people from dif- ferent states and learning about them at the same time," Ruch said. Delegates also had the opportunity to meet with U.S. Sen. Byron Dorgan, D-N.D., on Capitol Hill Day to represent North Dakota youth and discuss state 4-H programs. "My favorite part of the National 4-H confer- ence was definitely meeting all the different 4- H'ers from across the U.S. from 43 different states and Canada and Puerto Rico," Myhre said "All the different people all have different pro- grams from their state and it was really neat to get ideas for my club and community events."
