The Buccaneers played the Napoleon Imperials on Dec. 14. as the season opener, and lost. 55-60. But the experience gave the "Run- ning Bucs" some additional insight into what would become their first state tournament opponent this year. "We've got a tough game ahead of us." Bob Waldal. head coach, told the Golden Valley News on March 17. "We press the same: they're a mirror image of us.;" In the days prior to leaving for the game with Napoleon, set for l p.m. at the F~irgodome, Waldalsaid his team spent its time reviewing its strengths and weaknesses. "Napoleon plays a lot like us but are probably faster than we are." he said. "For the love of the game. can best describe this group of players coming into the 2012-13 basketball season." Waldal added in a prepared statement earlier this week. "Last year was a pleasant surprise, captur- ing both district and regional titles Left: Brooklynn Zachmann I oks to pass the ball.

Com- post is considered essential to every garden,and should be added to gar- dens in the spring and fall, of at least 1-2 inches. Doing this adds and con- serves nutrients arid helps fight plant disease. Manure is one of these that can be used, but it was advised that fresh manure should never be used after the garden is planted. Synthetic fertilizers are also good for gardens as man3; are easier to use. cost-effec- tive, and quick acting. ,, Maximizing the use of garden space is also recommended. One way is to intercrop - that is to set plants within other plants. Citing the gar- dening practices of the American In- dian, Buffalo Bird Woman, Kalb explained the "four sister~ of a Dakota garden," by planting sun- flowers in the back row, corn in the next row, then green or pole beans, corn and beans again, arid then win- ter squash in the front row and along the sides, this deters plant predators from coming rote the gardeh. Scat- tering plants from the same family group, like tomatoes, peppers, pota- rg toes, or cucumbers, melon and ' squash will also prevent pests from damaging plants that were set to- gether. And plants such as peppers, garlic and herbs will confuse the plant predators, keeping them from damaging the garden. To prevent pests, Kalb recom- mended using physical barriers, such as cheesecloth, removing crop residue, controlling weeds, and to avoid routine spraying as that may kill those insects that are helpful in eliminating the harmful pests that cause damage. Organic insecticides, such as bacillus thuringiensis (Bt), which is natural and safe to use; insecticidal soap, or botanicals such as neem, garlic, and hot pepper are options. Rabbits can also cause a great deal of destruction to gardens, and one of the best ways to prevent this it to put wire fencing around the gar- den plot, burying a portion of the wire underground so that the garden can't be reached by the animal dig- ging underneath it. , Expo (Continued on Page 8)' Place...For Your Money In a world filled with uncertainty, it's good to know your money is safe.
