Athlete of the Week - Kylie Gust

Oakdale High's lanky guard/forward, Kylie Gust, is the Dirk Nowitzki of Lady Mustang hoops. Her exploits were a bright spot during the OHS girls basketball program in the 2011-12 season and she has already made a big impact this year. She drained two threes and landed a team-high eight points as Oakdale rallied to a 37-23 win over LeGrand on Thursday as the varsity girls captured their second win of the season.

Valley Home News for December 26, 2012

We hope that Santa was able to make his visit to our Valley Home area and deliver a sleigh full of Christmas cheer even though he was greeted by rainy weather! Valley Home residents were still able to enjoy wending their way through our streets in the rain, and enjoy the colorful display of lighted homes. Even though we had to undergo heavy rain at times, the lights were enveloped in a misty glow that was beautiful to see.

Only In Oakdale - Holiday Treasure Hunting

The last of the turkey soup has been frozen and the pumpkin pie is just a fond memory. Thanksgiving is long gone and that means it is time to get down to some serious Christmas shopping. Unfortunately, serious Christmas shopping sometimes means a lot of driving, often in wet, wild weather because, as most people know, 'serious shopping' means going to Riverbank at the very least. Or does it?
