Corn and oil may sound like an unpleasant cocktail, but blending ethanol and gasoline has resulted in savings for consumers and profits for farmers, advocates say. To expand those benefits, U.S. Rep. Kevin Cramer, R-N.D., has co-sponsored legislation, H.R. 1311, that would extend waivers for ethanol-gasoline blends greater than 10 percent.
The Wurst Shop in Dickinson proves that there's no taste like home. The modest German kitchen is a point of pride for a community, a celebration of this region's heritage, and for current owners Ken and Kristina Molitor it represents the greatest part of the American Dream.
Eat smart, play hard—and have lots of fun doing it. That's the guiding philosophy that led to 36 4-H clubs from 19 counties around North Dakota to be recognized for demonstrating a commitment to learning about and practicing healthful habits, earning a designation as a Healthy North Dakota 4-H Club for 2016-17.
MANNING—The earth is alive. Well, at least the soil is—densely flush with myriads of incredibly tiny organisms, microbes and fungi and everything inbetween, a complex web of interconnected predators and prey, all of whom subsist upon the nourishment that issues forth from the roots of our crops.
Stephanie Arthaud drove 23 hours to the storm-savaged Gulf Coast, alongside other volunteers from the Bakken Paws animal rescue organization, to retrieve 40 dogs in danger of euthanization. The crew snatched the dogs from the jaws of death and brought them back north for recovery, rehabilitation and ultimately adoption.
Someone I knew died just recently. They were killed in a car crash, hundreds of miles away. I just found out.

A row of metal awards depicts a North Dakota very different from the endless farmlands that define its landscape: oil derricks, drills, an anchor made of horseshoes. These awards are intended to represent the roughnecks, the grit and pride of those who wear their hard work on their sleeves and—as the first LegeNDary Tattoo Expo showcased this weekend in Dickinson—on their skin.
Ninety percent of the carbon dioxide emitted from a commercial-scale coal-burning power plant in Texas known as WA Parish Generation Station is captured, sequestered and pumped through a pipeline to an oil field 81 miles away.
When it comes to picking the best sire for your cattle, using statistics for your decision is no bull. "So you've got benchmarks," Kris Ringwall, director of the North Dakota State University Research Extension Center, said Thursday. "Benchmarking is a huge part of understanding where you're at.
