Beach rolls much taller Killdeer BEACH - Another slow start and foul trouble hammered the young "Running Bucs" but got it going after trailing by two points 13-11 to end the first quarter with Killdeer on Dec. 29. The second quarter was again a totally different team, scoring 19 points to only seven for the visiting Killdeer team. The defense was much better after the Bucs settled in to play their own game. The girls began reversing the ball and took advantage of some of the missed defensive coverages allowing for some wide-open shots from the out- side. Hailee Farstveet and Cydni Stedman combined for 15 points out of the 19. Farstveet's 11 points in the quar- ter got the Buccaneer engine run- ning. We need her to be a lot more assertive and in the attack mode right from the beginning. We also need her to get the team organized in the half court. It is a fine line, but she can handle that role as other guards have those same responsibil- ities. This young team needs to take it to the basket right from the opening bell and get our opponents in foul trouble instead of having it done to us. We must turn around that trend as we move into the middle part of the season. The kids just need to figure some things out in a very tough schedule. Kelcee Dykins and Brooke Davidson sat most of the first half, but madetheir presence felt early in the third quarter and for the rest of the second half. Brooke drained 3- three pointers while Dykins made 13 of her 18 points all in the second half. The two of them combined for five 3-pointers. Beach knocked down nine of their 10 3-pointers after the first quarter with four dif- ferent players doing the damage. "You could just see how relaxed they got," Killdeer head coach Sarah Doe said of Beach's 3-point shooting. "They got a little bit of a lead and so they could do more of their outside shooting." Killdeer: 13, 20, 25, 37 Beach: II, 30,45,65 Beach scorers: Haliee Farstveet, 22; Kelcee Dykins, 18; Cydni Stedman, 10; Brooke Davidson, 9: Taylor Abraham, 2; Channa Clarin, 2; Bailey Waldal, 2. 3-pointers: K 3 (Klein 3), B 10 (Farstveet, 4; Davidson, 3; Dykins, 2; Stedman, 1).

Please support your local merchants North Dakota newspapers are here to stay... Realities and myths about North Dakota newspapers As a trade association for the 90 North Dakota daily and weekly newspapers, we want to address in simple language the truth about newspapers in North Dakota. Your local newspaper is here for the long run. Some pundits and so- called experts are already writing the obituary for the newspaper industry. We say: Not so fast. Newspapers march on not only as news leaders and innovators, but as stalwart businesses in communities they serve, contributing to the well-being of Main Street and North Dakota. Newspapers remain a dominant media source in North Dakota. Newspapers in this state have an estimated readership of more than 500,000, plus a growing on-line audience. 9 out of 10 North Dakotans read their local newspaper. Nationwide, more than 104 million adults read a newspaper every day, except on on Sunday when readership grows to 115 million. That's more people than watch the Super Bowl (94 million), American Idol (23 million), or the evening news (65 million). The biggest reason newspapers are read is because you rely on your newspaper to know what's happening in your community. Obituaries, weddings, high school sports, city hall, babies, arrests, yard sales, meetings, little league baseball, community events, engagements, town business, government public notices, even the ads ... the list goes on and on. Your newspaper connects you with your community. No other medium provides what new provide. (Ever see obituaries on TV?) It's a myth that the Internet and other sources will provide news if North Dakota newspapers aren't here to do the job. The reality is that newspapers make a larger investment in newsgathering than any other medium. In fact, most of the news you get from other media originated with reporting done by newspapers. Sometimes broadcasters read the news directly from the newspaper! This is a time when newspapers are transforming. The industry is adapting and moving forward. We look forward to the future! We look forward to providing news, information and advertising that help connect and build the communities we serve.
