Best for Families "The Crazy Ones" CBS, 7 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 26 This may or may not be all that family friendly. We'll have to wait and see on that.
As the Dickinson Public School district continues to grow, changes will undoubtedly need to be made. At its regular board meeting Monday evening at the Central Administration Office, the district's school board unanimously approved the hiring of DLR Group -- a Minneapolis design firm who will partner with GT Architecture of Dickinson -- as a facility master planner charged with helping the district determine how it should move forward as the city grows and enrollment increases. "The goal is hopefully to engage the community in an in-depth and thorough discussion about what the Dickinson Publ
Harvest in North Dakota can be a time of celebration, frustration and, if you get the crop in the bin or to the elevator, pure relief. Once the crop is cut, there are no more worries about hail, thunderstorms or any other force of nature that can upset the fragile plants on which farmers' livelihoods hinge. The stuff that makes the money is finally off the field and safely stored. I spent eight of the last 12 days in August on what amounted to be a working vacation as I helped my dad and brother harvest their durum, spring wheat and canola crop.
Everyone has to eat. That's the motto southwest North Dakota farmers Jim Kerzman and Bob Kuylen have, and it's the sentiment they're taking with them to Washington, D.C., this week as part of the National Farmers Union's annual fly-in event to lobby members of Congress to support the farm bill. Sixty-seven North Dakota Farmers Union members are flying into the nation's capital and Kuylan, who farms wheat and sunflowers near South Heart, said he hopes the delegation can put some faces to the farm bill. "They like to talk to actual farmers instead of lobbyists," Kuylen said.
Dylan Skabo spent the past two seasons playing quarterback in a run-oriented offense. The speedy and athletic Dickinson High senior fits in well as a slot receiver in the spread. Skabo had 93 yards receiving, two of his four catches went for touchdowns and he added an untouched 86-yard punt return for another score while the Midgets' defense put up its second shutout in as many games with a 35-0 homecoming victory over Grand Forks Central on Friday night at the Biesiot Activities Center. "We have so many skilled players that are fast and are able to play on a varsity field that we have to p
Tomorrow morning, kids in the New England Public School District will attend their eighth day of classes.
A John Deere combine, part of a harvesting crew from Nebraska, cuts a field of spring wheat south of New England on Friday.
The mother of a Texas teen who reportedly went missing from a Dickinson construction site is offering a $5,000 reward for information that would lead to his whereabouts. According to Jolene Stubbs, 16-year-old Edward "Ashton" Stubbs disappeared on June 17 from a jobsite north of Walmart.
Last week, billionaire innovator Elon Musk revealed details about a secretive project he has been working on, which he claims could give humanity a "fifth mode of transport." The Hyperloop, as Musk calls it, is basically the same idea as pneumatic tubes used by banks to pass documents or money from customers to tellers at drive-through stations. But instead of being 12 inches long and designed for inanimate objects, the Hyperloop would be solar powered and use forced air to move six human passengers in a capsule 4½ feet wide and a little over 6 feet tall at about 800 mph wherever its tubes r
NEW ENGLAND -- There isn't a producing oil well within 15 miles of New England. But just like many other western North Dakota communities, the small town in northwestern Hettinger County is seeing a revitalization thanks in large part to the economic impact of the Bakken oil boom. Several new homes are being built, and the city's population has increased from 460 a few years ago to an estimated 700.
