I am terribly afraid of spiders, so I was a bit squeamish about debunking a few of the false spider-related posts on Facebook.

Here's a breaking news flash: the weather sucks.
It will eventually improve around here, I think, but that probably isn't of any solace to some of the spring athletes around NDSU. I'm starting to won... Posted on 4/12/13 at 10:41 AM

MS. SIMPLICITY Does Life Beign At The End Of Your Comfort Zone?
"Life begins at the end of your comfort zone" Neale Donald Walsch

Minnesota Timberwolves point guard Bobby Brown has exercised his player option for the 2009-10 season.
Brown will make just under $740,000 next season. He came over from Sacramento at the trade deadline in a deal that sent Rashad McCants to the Kings. He averaged 5.3 points and 1.7 assists in under 14 minutes a game last season.
Montpelier’s Heather Brown has signed a Dakota Athletic Conference letter of intent to play volleyball next fall for Jamestown College.
The 5-foot-11 senior middle hitter guided the Litchville-Marion-Montpelier Rebels to a fourth-place finish in the state Class B volleyball tournament last fall with an overall record of 22-2.
British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, like legions of politicians before him, has broken a campaign promise not to raise taxes and will do so on the citizens of the United Kingdom in April 2011, that is, if the governing Labour Party is re-elected. Those earning between $40,000 and $100,000 pounds ($61,335 to $154,000USD) will pay an average of $156 pounds ($240USD) more in tax per year. According to The London Times, Brown also proposes to raise taxes on the already burdened “wealthy.” “Those earning “$150,000 pounds ($230,000USD) will pay an extra $3,000 in tax. Someone earning $200,000 ($307,000USD) will pay an extra $5,000.”
Jenae Kramlich of Barnes County North, Heather Brown of Litchville-Marion-Montpelier and Maple Valley’s Mariah Smith played key roles in helping Team North Dakota won the annual King Kamehameha Summer Basketball Tournament on the island of Oahu, Hawaii, last month.
When Big Brown turned for home, something wasn’t right.
Jockey Kent Desormeaux knew the big bay colt was finished. Trainer Rick Dutrow Jr., who guaranteed racing’s first Triple Crown in 30 years, knew it, too.
The Triple Crown trail is littered with colts whose feet failed them along the way. Less than 24 hours before the biggest horse race in three decades, favorite Big Brown and his Japanese challenger, Casino Drive, took steps in opposite directions.
Big Brown is No. 1 again before he even stampedes out of the gate at the Belmont Stakes.
Big Brown will take his shot at Triple Crown history from the inside, drawing the No. 1 post for Saturday’s race. The post could be a lucky one for an undefeated colt that really doesn’t need any extra edge: It’s produced the most Belmont winners (23) since 1905.
Big Brown was installed as the early 2-5 favorite against nine rivals for the grueling 1½-mile race.
Seth Nichols shut down a potent Grafton lineup. And the Dakota Prairie ace got some help from an uncharacteristic offensive outburst from the bottom of the Knights’ batting order.
It all added up to a first-round victory at the state Class B baseball tournament on Thursday at Jack Brown Stadium.
