Yvan Pelletier, the club's sprint coach, is part of a program that started in January that's getting parents moving while their kids train.
One parent decided to become a full member of the club and get fit, which had others saying that they should do that as well.
The club is training at the track at Base Gagetown, so there are a variety of fitness options for the parents to choose from. While one has a goal of running a 10K in May and another would like to be able to jog with his daughter, others are just happy to be moving. The cost for parents to be part of the program is only $75, which is money well spent as far as most are concerned.
Chantal Ouellette's daughter, 10-year-old Eugenie Gaujacq, is a member of The Fredericton Legion Track Club, which is how she got involved.
When she started, she told him she had a knee injury on her right leg and an ankle injury on her left leg. The coaches also made sure that Ouellette didn't overdo it, which can be tempting when someone starts working out.
What she does varies week to week, which keeps it interesting, but her overall goal is to be able to run two kilometres.
She's feeling better, has more energy, her body shape has changed and she's lost weight, she says. When she came to Canada from Germany, she settled down, had children and went to university. She and Ouellette knew one another, and she saw that Ouellette began working out in September. Since he was waiting here for a couple of hours, doing nothing, he decided to put that time to good use.
He's enjoying it, as he gets to be there for his daughter, 14-year-old Pascale Ouellette, but not be in her way. In this case, the kids were the inspiration for the parents, but now each can encourage the other to keep with it.
Assistant coach James Dunn gives Alexie Noble, 12, special recognition for her accomplishments in the program. Jim Melhus wanted a way to raise awareness and money for the Homeward Animal Shelter, where he works as a dog trainer. Melhus donated a baseball signed by baseball greats Roger Maris, Mickey Mantle and Ken Hunt at Homewarda€™s annual Wags, Whiskers & Wine event Oct.
Maris now stands at seventh on the list, but the three players whoa€™ve hit more than 61 homers in a season a€“ Barry Bonds, McGwire and Sosa a€“ have all been implicated for steroid use.
Jim Savageau was Melhusa€™ boss at OK Tire, and he happened to be a friend of Marisa€™ from Shanley High School and was part of the golf tournamenta€™s inner circle. The tournament came to town and, as was always the case in the early days, there was much revelry among the former Yankees and their friends. Savageau showed up at OK Tire a morning after such revelry and spotted Melhus a fair distance away performing his job as a tire installer. The signatures of Maris and Hunt have been authenticated by a sports memorabilia organization, which is very important to collectors. Galen Heinle of Big Nicka€™s Sports Cards in West Acres Mall helped the shelter authenticate the ball and said it has great value. Homeward Animal Shelter hopes Marisa€™ popularity can help with its mission of rescuing, sheltering, protecting and finding homes for dogs and cats. ESPN's announcement will come one day after North Dakota State football fans learned the network's "College GameDay" program did not choose Fargo.
The following e-mail was sent to Minnesota State University Moorhead faculty and staff today.
MSUM President Anne Blackhurst has named Doug Peters, Director of Athletics, to serve as Interim Vice President for Enrollment Management and Student Affairs.
Blackhurst also announced interim administrative office realignments that will be reviewed during the coming months.
Drew Wrigleya€™s public confession of an extramarital affair seemed more like a staged political event than a genuine mea culpa, but what should we expect from a person whose political ambition seems to be outweighed only by his audacity? North Dakotaa€™s lieutenant governor got caught with his pants down and his answer was not to throw himself on the mercy of the court and say a€?Ia€™m sorry,a€? but to seat his wife next to him and talk about prayer and faith and the couplea€™s pastor.
Yes, Drew Wrigley still really wants to be governor a€“ really, really, really wants to be governor a€“ and hea€™s doing what he can do to keep the dream alive. This little pothole in the road opened last week when a blogger named Jim Fuglie, a former leader of the Democratic-NPL Party in North Dakota, dropped word of Wrigleya€™s messy personal life and a€?indiscretionsa€? in a post predicting state attorney general Wayne Stenehjem would replace Jack Dalrymple as governor. Wrigley responded swiftly by issuing a handful of interviews with select legitimate media, and a sycophant right-wing blogger, in an attempt (in public-relations terminology) to control the message. The lieutenant governora€™s adept handling of the nasty news, and North Dakota mediaa€™s lack of courage in insisting on more specifics or even offering tough commentary, seems to have worked.
This limp reaction to Wrigleya€™s confession makes it likely hea€™s feeling confident about his ability to make a run at the Republican nomination and, in deeply red North Dakota, the governorship.
See, a real human being with real humility woulda€™ve issued a statement saying, a€?My wife and I are working through this very difficult time together. Instead, Wrigley essentially held a press conference with his wife at his side and admitted hea€™s still mulling a run for governor. Ita€™s particularly interesting when you consider the leak about the affair is alleged to have come from Wrigleya€™s own side of the aisle. While Wrigley steadfastly refuses to give up on his dream of being governor, a run could be particularly nasty on his wife and family.
Rumor has it Wrigley was carrying on with a married woman and the affair broke up her marriage. Somebody wearing such an obvious coating of veneer deserves to have it stripped away for the world to see. Six anglers from Indiana have been cited for taking 676 sunfish and crappies over their limit from Upper Cormorant Lake in Becker County, Minn. Charges were filed late last week, according to Department of Natural Resources conservation officer Bill Landmark. If convicted, the anglers could face thousands of dollars in fines and revocation of fishing privileges for three years. BOSTON -- It took an empty-net goal by Boston University star Jack Eichel to seal North Dakota's fate Thursday night in the Frozen Four. Boston U advanced to the NCAA Division I men's hockey title game with a 5-3 victory over UND, a closer victory than anybody saw coming when the Terriers were leading 4-1 with less than 6 minutes remaining. But the fact is the frantic finish can't hide the numbers: UND has failed to win a national championship in seven trips to the Frozen Four during coach Dave Hakstol's 11 seasons.
The first is the one most UND fans, and more importantly the school's administration, choose: Hak's doing a great job by getting his team to the national semifinals on a regular basis. The two coaches prior to Hakstol, Gino Gasparini and Dean Blais, won multiple national titles. Hakstol said he was happy about 50 minutes of UND's play, but thought his team didn't manage the puck well in the game's first eight to 10 minutes. He also lamented the lack of bounces his team got through most of the contest, until Troy Stecher used a misplay by Boston goalie Matt O'Connor to score a short-handed goal with 7:50 to cut BU's lead to 4-2. So UND fans are left talk about another one that got away, and how gritty their team was and how the officiating and bounces just didn't go their way.
But Hakstol continues to underachieve with a program that is the equivalent of the Boston Red Sox in college hockey. BOSTON -- North Dakota dropped two ugly games at the National Collegiate Hockey Conference tournament in Minneapolis in mid-March, losing to St.
Such chatter was quelled in a big way at the NCAA West Regional in Fargo a couple of weeks ago.
Questions for Hakstol and his players following UND's 4-1 victory over Quinnipiac in the regional semifinals naturally centered on "bouncing back" after such an awful showing in the NCHC tournament.
As Grand Forks Herald beat writer Brad Schlossman pointed out Wednesday in a discussion about the Frozen Four that will air on KFGO today, Hakstol nibbled around the edges of why UND played so poorly in the NCHC tournament. The narrative has definitely changed as UND readies to play Boston University on Thursday night in the national semifinals. Hakstol has taken his share of arrows for Frozen Four disappointments -- and much of it is deserved after UND allowed Boston College to score seemingly at will in three straight semifinals matchups from 2006-08 -- but a year ago in Philadelphia was a different story. UND seems to have put talk of the late-season flop and the season-ending injury to Mark MacMillan and everything else behind it. It will be interesting to see how UND fans react should their team fall short of a national title again. That was the clear talking point of UND's postgame press conference: The page has been turned. I am solidly on the left side of the political ledger, but took a very cautious approach to the story.
The police report indicated a night of drinking, followed by arguing, followed by the throwing of objects and physical contact.


If we learned anything from Baesler's situation it is that domestic ugliness infects even the relationships of the supposed high and mighty. We also learned, again, that situations the media try to turn into black-and-white, right-and-wrong, this-is-the-way-it-is arguments rarely are. A peek inside a domestic situation is an uncomfortable look at reality, not a partisan argument.
He'd just watched his very talented offensive team get steamrolled by a much, much better offensive team, 92-75 in the quarterfinals of the NCAA Division II tournament. The Knights finished the contest shooting 61 percent from the floor (37 of 61), which is outstanding for any basketball team. But the most impressive player on the court was Whitehead, a 5-foot-9 scat back of a point guard who dominated both ends of the court against MSUM. Despite nearly getting run over at the end of the first half, the Dragons found themselves down just six points, 49-43, at halftime. The Knights won the Division II national title in 2011 and returned to the Elite Eight the next season. Bellarmine's coach is Scott Davenport, who served as an assistant under Denny Crum and Rick Pitino at Louisville. Bellarmine was the subject of a lengthy New York Times article in January, focusing on their remarkable shooting and the practice drills Davenport uses. The mentality of everyone on the floor is, I may have a good shot, but theres always a chance to get a better one for someone else, junior forward George Suggs told the Times. North Dakota State football fans are familiar with the type of stadium needed for a Major League Soccer franchise. Toyota Stadium is a 20,500-seat open-air venue that is, by today's standards, functional without being outlandish. The stadium and surrounding complex (which includes several practice fields and in total covers 145 acres) were completed in 2005 at the cost of $80 million.
I'm passing along this information because Minnesota is now embroiled in a brewing MLS soccer stadium controversy. Because the franchise will not be awarded to the owner of the NFL's Minnesota Vikings, Zygi Wilf, the new team cannot play in the nearly $1 billion stadium being built in downtown Minneapolis. So the owner of the MLS franchise, Bill McGuire, wants a new stadium in downtown Minneapolis. Target Field, home of the Minnesota Twins, is being paid for, in part, by a sales tax in Hennepin County (Minneapolis and western suburbs).
The immediate opposition to a soccer stadium is baffling, if for no other reason than this would be the financially least painful facility to build.
The new Vikings stadium will cost an estimated $975 million, of which $498 million will be state and city tax dollars. So the state isn't willing to help fund a facility for a major-league soccer team, in a state in which tens of thousands of kids play soccer? They're driving their kids here and now they're spending the same amount of time (they used to spend waiting) to get their exercise," says Pelletier. Germain Landry and Fernand Ouellette are fathers with children in the club and are both working to improve their fitness. I used to run four or five kilometres a night 25 years ago, so I wanted to roll back to that and shed a few pounds," he says. Many still view Maris as the a€?truea€? record-holder because he did not use performancing-enhancing drugs.
This was the first year of the Roger Maris Celebrity Golf Tournament and an all-star lineup of ex-New York Yankees were in Fargo. Chad Markuson, Associate Athletic Director, will assume additional responsibilities during Petersa€™ interim appointment. It is hard work looking contrite, but you do what you gotta do when the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow is the governora€™s mansion. Rumors of Wrigleya€™s wandering eye a€“ as well as other body parts a€“ had been swirling in political circles for some time, but Fuglie was the first to throw them out publicly. There were certain limitations put on the interviews and Wrigley would not address specific details of the affair. Whether or not I run for governor is the last thing on my mind as we work to save our marriage of 17 years. He also said the affair did not have an effect on his current job, which he will not resign. The hot rumor is that Stenehjem supporters were calling media and bloggers to tip them off on Wrigleya€™s dalliances. If indeed Stenehjema€™s supporters were trying to take him down this early, whata€™s to say they dona€™t have more dirt on the lieutenant governor?
If Wrigley carried on with the other woman for, say, three years a€“ well, thata€™s a lot different than a one-time liaison. If true, the lieutenant governor would be what is known among the commoners as a a€?home-wrecker.a€? Ita€™s quite likely the husband (ex-husband?) of the other woman is quite aggrieved at this turn of affairs. He just wanted us all to know that he didna€™t break any governmental ethical codes and the affair didna€™t affect his job performance, so ita€™s all good. He entered Thursday's postgame press conference in his usual terse and defensive mood, and proceeded to tell the assembled media that he didn't want any questions about perspectives on the season. North Dakota State football fans, with the resources the school puts into the program and the tradition it has, wouldn't stand for 11 years without a national title. There have been a number of memorable flops in the Frozen Four, fueling the "Fire Hak!" crowd.
Hakstol, in his usual terse manner, quelled such talk by saying his club "turned the page" after the trainwreck in the Twin Cities.
Turns out, Schlossman has since learned, that UND's players and coaches were fighting a nasty bug that weekend that drained nearly everybody connected to the team, including strength coach Mark Poolman and team doctor Greg Greek. A club many counted out prior to the regionals is now again viewed as a strong contender for the national title.
UND played well in a semifinal against hated Minnesota, only to see the Gophers score with 0.6 seconds left to take a 2-1 victory. Hakstol said it several times and the UND players queried by the media -- Drake Caggiula, Troy Stecher and Tucker Poolman -- repeated it, too.
15 a juicy tidbit picked up by media in Bismarck, Fargo, Grand Forks and every other major city in North Dakota.
She countered with a statement saying "an argument escalated to the point where I was concerned for my safety. I said on my KFGO program, and wrote in a blog, that we should all just quiet down and let the process play itself out.
In an interview with Forum News Service, Baesler stuck by her story that she was just trying to get out of her fiance's home.
And, in the end, none of the witnesses provided much clarity other than agreeing nobody saw any of the thrown objects hit Tschosik, the alleged victim. Perhaps that is a good lesson to remember: Domestic violence isn't the exclusive domain of the poor, the minority population, the uneducated, the hourly workers, the regular people. To read Mike Nowatzki's report for Forum Communications is to be part of that awkward, uncomfortable moment that is part alcohol, part emotion, part fatigue, part violence, part jealousy, part rage and a dozen other things. Whether it was layups from Jake Thelen (12 of 16), 3-pointers from Rusty Troutman (3 of 3) or driving bankshots from the ultra-talented Chris Whitehead (8 of 13), Bellarmine simply had too many weapons for the Dragons. He was shooting 67 percent for the season coming into the contest, and shot 74 percent last year. Whitehead was essentially unguardable with his quickness off the dribble and when he wasn't scoring an easy layup, he was zipping a pass to Thelen or Josh Derksen for an open jump shot. As MSUM's Tyler Vaughan said after the game, "If you give up 49 points in the first half, things aren't going to go well." Yet, the Dragons were still in the game.
It was the most victories in a season for an MSUM and the school's first trip to the Elite Eight since moving to Division II in the mid-1990s. He also coach with former Kentucky coach Tubby Smith while Smith was at Virginia Commonwealth.
The Knights are the best shooting team in Division II at 53.4 percent and star post Jake Thelen, a 6-foot-7 senior, shoots 67 percent.
They lead the nation with 372 3-pointers and have Division II's best assist-to-turnover ratio.
Toyota Stadium in Frisco, Texas, home of FC Dallas of the MLS, is where the mighty Bison won the last four Football Championship Subdivision national title games. It doesn't seem an unreasonable request, given the orgy of stadium-building in the Twin Cities the last decade or so. Minnesota Senate Majority Leader Tom Bakk, a DFLer and a huge union supporter who would seemingly love more union construction jobs, has said state money for a soccer stadium will not happen. If the MLS franchise were to require an 18,000-seat stadium, it could be constructed for -- what? Much of the rest of the cost of the stadium will be offset by the NFL and naming rights, which will be sold by the Wilfs.


Melhus said Savageau told him that Mantle was a) extremely inebriated and b) perturbed Maris had already signed on the a€?sweet spota€? of the ball, so Mickey nonchalantly scribbled his signature.
As a long time media jackal, I learned long ago to root for great stories and somebody as blindly ambitious and narcissistic as Wrigley shrugging off an extramarital affair to pursue political power is a heckuva tale. Faithful people can forgive a man succumbing to a weakness of the flesh, but a multiple-year affair requires planning and conscientious effort and lying. He's won three regular-season conference titles in his 11 years, and four conference playoff championships. UND continues to be one of the premier college hockey programs in the country, as it was under Gasparini and Blais. Perhaps they'll add how the team was lucky to get this far after losing leader Mark MacMillan to a horrible season-ending injury and how it bounced back so nicely after a lost weekend at the National Collegiate Hockey Conference tournament. This had the hardcore base of UND hockey fans ready to begin their talk of "Fire Hak!" again. Cloud State before a fiercely partisan full house at Scheels Arena to earn a seventh trip to the Frozen Four under Hakstol. Ultra-conservatives who didn't like Baesler because she's an unapologetic advocate of Common Core -- the education standards hated by ultra-conservatives -- took shots at her. But they got it rolling at the end of the first half there and we kind of got left behind," Walthall said. Senior guard Jordan Riewer, averaging 16 points a game, can hit a trey from pretty much anywhere across half-court. According to a story in the Dallas Morning News, the complex is booked 250 days a year and draws 1.8 million visitors annually.
While ita€™s unfortunate this very private matter has become public, I hope the media will respect our privacy as we work through it together.
UND gets the players it wants, it doesn't lack for money or staff or fan support or anything else.
Bob Babich, had he not bolted town after a 2-8 season, would not have lasted in Fargo much longer. Those of a more left-leaning nature took cracks at her because she's a Republican and she had personal issues. Peoples opinion's of Kirsten Baesler's and Todd Tschosik's relationship, I said, should not be based on political parties, but on what actually happened that night. At one end of the stadium is a stage area that can be used for concerts -- like the annual Jimmy Buffett festival that draws the stadium's biggest crowds.
Mark Dayton, also a huge union supporter who touted the jobs that would be created as he acted as the top cheerleader for the new Vikings' stadium, has said he would oppose a Hennepin County tax to pay for a soccer venue.
Because the end-run to avoid a public vote on a county sales tax in Minnesota (which would most likely be "no" when it comes to sports stadia) is to get permission from the Legislature. North Dakota Nice, or perhaps fear of reprisal from the statea€™s all-powerful Republican Party, won the day. Craig Bohl was nearly run out of town after finishing 3-8, but rallied in a big way to construct a dynasty. Nothing -- repeat, nothing -- is as simple as the media (myself included) try to make it seem. Plenty of dough, to be sure, but peanuts compared to all the stadia built in the Twin Cities since 2000. The effort he put into his presentation to customize it for our very unique and diverse audience was greatly appreciated. He really 'hit the mark' and gave our attendees lots of great ideas to consider as they face the challenges with this disease in the future.
