Brock: Welcome to Dickinson, where the golden rule applies
I moved to Dickinson almost seven years ago. Like many of the folks moving here I, too, did so for employment. Unlike many that are moving here today, I had visited Dickinson and knew about the great quality of life here on the Western Edge. When folks ask me where I’m from, I...

Brock: Where did my summer go?
What the heck happened? I went to sleep on May 15, woke up yesterday morning and it was the first day of August. I feel like I’m in a “Twilight Zone” episode. One minute I fall asleep, dreaming of soaking up summer sun and enjoying all the great things about summer in North...

Brock: A visit with four of the many men moving to Dickinson
While waiting outside for the oil to get changed in the company car on what was a beautiful summer day last week, I struck up a conversation with four other guys who were also waiting for their vehicles. They told me their names, but those are less important than who they were, where...

Brock: ‘Back in the day’ memories
I still can’t believe 40-years ago in June I graduated from high school, and it is not the type of thing you celebrate like a 10-year or 20-year reunion. Recently, I heard someone describing how things were in high school 10-years ago beginning with the phrase “back in the day.”...

Brock: Looking back on the class of 1974
Scores of folks will line up to watch the annual Roughrider Days parade on Saturday. It’ll include the floats of class reunions. I have never attended a class reunion in large part because I moved so far away and partly because I’m not sure it is legally safe to return to the...

Brock: My wife’s dachshund dog, Pressley
Admitting you own a dachshund is not an easy thing for a man to do, so I have always told folks Pressley is my wife’s dog. I am quick to tell folks that I own Griff, a Wirehaired Pointing Griffon bird dog ugly enough and pretty stupid, but an acceptable masculine working hound....

Brock: Much can be learned about oil industry in a day
I attended the Williston Basin Petroleum Conference in Bismarck on Wednesday. This year’s theme is Bakken Strong and the main three areas of focus were economy, technology and opportunity. Technology was what blew me away at last year’s conference in Regina, Saskatchewan. Driving...

Brock: Visiting the Big Apple

Brock: Baseball isn’t fair, as hard as they try
Baseball, like life, isn’t supposed to be fair. Baseball is a game I dearly love and should not be confused with other sports. Still, the brain trust that is Major League Baseball doesn’t recognize the distinct beauty and advantages it has over other sports. This year, the...
