FALL WRAP-UP. The ND State High School Clay Target League wrapped up its fall league this week, with more than 400 shooters participating in the autumn season. Conference Champions included South Prairie, Grafton, Century & Oak Grove high schools. Dylan Feltman of Grafton and Olivia Spicza of Shanley claimed the top spots in male and female overall competition.
A TAURID AFFAIR. Check out the sky this week and do some stargazing as the full moon fades, odds are you’ll see a few streaks shooting across the sky as the minor Taurid meteor shower occurs. Look to the southern sky towards the constellation Taurus to catch some unusually bright meteors.
EARLY & LATE. Warm and windy will be the theme for the start of the week, and things will cool off into the weekend, but become somewhat calmer. A chance for light snow lingers into Sunday as well, when temperatures begin to dip below average.
