BISMARCK — Medora Mayor Doug Ellison says all indicators point to a good tourism season this summer. Since Memorial Day, the unofficial summer kickoff weekend, he said the number of visitors through the small western town that boasts the Medora Musical and historic old-west look, has been steady, and that’s with many rainy days and two weeks before the musical was set to open Friday night.
After flooding slowed the first part of the tourist season in Medora last year, this year’s dry, sunny streak has allowed more people to enjoy this historic North Dakota city and its neighboring national park, officials said this past week.

Commissioners passed the first reading of the proposed amendment at a Monday meeting.
