JAMESTOWN, N.D. — Part of President Donald Trump's proposed budget for the 2018 fiscal year released Thursday would eliminate the Essential Air Service program, which provides commercial passenger service to airports in Jamestown, Devils Lake and Dickinson. Under Trump's proposed budget, eliminating the U.S. Department of Transportation's Essential Air Service program would save $175 million. Essential Air Service provides federal subsidies to airlines that provide commercial passenger service to rural and small-community airports.
COURTENAY, N.D.—Dane Bollingberg lives in Courtenay and each morning he gets his children up, dressed and on the road by 7 a.m. to get them to day care in Jamestown. Courtenay is 35 miles from Jamestown. Bollingberg, along with about 30 to 40 other Courtenay-area residents, travels N.D. Highway 9 to N.D. Highway 20 to get to Jamestown each morning and evening for jobs, day care and other reasons. With North Dakota experiencing a typical winter, Bollingberg said there were a couple of days where the roads between Courtenay and Jamestown were "sketchy."
JAMESTOWN, N.D. — North Dakota Farmers Union and the Dakota Resource Center will be allowed to intervene in a federal lawsuit filed by the North Dakota Farm Bureau and other farmers and ranchers seeking to overturn the state's anti-corporate farming laws.

NEW ROCKFORD, N.D.—A 52-year-old New Rockford man was sentenced Thursday to 29 years in prison for murdering an apparent innocent bystander at a wedding reception in September 2015 and to another 20 years that will run concurrently for attempting to kill his ex-girlfriend.

The James River Correctional Center has a new program for its inmates --- a chorus. The James River Correctional Center Chorus had eight members for its first concert on Aug. 31 at the correctional center's visitors center. The concert was limited to the correctional center's staff and the chorus members' families. Corrections Officer Drew Topp, who started the chorus earlier this year, said the chorus performs a variety of music, from spirituals to country and rock.
JAMESTOWN, N.D.—When Jamestown Fire Chief Jim Reuther picked up Chloe, an 8-week-old female bloodhound, in Fargo, he wasn't thinking too much about the return trip to Jamestown. "Try driving with a 20-pound dog on your lap," he said, chuckling at the thought. Reuther went to Fargo Aug. 21 to meet with Erin and Ryan Solberg, owners of Cedar Ridge Hounds where they raise pure-bred bloodhounds in northern Minnesota. The couple decided to give Reuther the dog because of how he intends to use Chloe—as a search-and-rescue dog.
