In a case of “he said/she said” – “he” doesn’t have to say a damn thing to be believed

We hear the same tired excuse with nearly every report of rape, every case of domestic violence, every instance of the cruelty husbands all too often inflict upon their wives.


There is darkness in the valley

Valley City is a small community nestled in the heart of the Sheyenne River Valley. Being surrounded by beautiful landscapes, one would assume the community is just as beautiful too. However, whatever potential for beauty it might have once held, Valley City has been corrupted by the darkest of evils – pedophilia, rape, molestation, and murder.

Rapist Matt Hager

On the night before Christmas Eve, I went to visit someone I had thought was a friend from my youth. We attended kindergarten together. We went to the same elementary school. His mom Pat Hager was my Sunday School teacher one year at St. John’s Catholic Church in Wyndmere. I may have gone to his home with friendly intentions, but his own intentions were anything but friendly.
