CHI St. Alexius Health in Dickinson is the newest hospital in North Dakota to offer the state-of-the-art technology slowly making its way into clinics nationwide — 3D mammography. "It's super exciting," Tracey Mann, director of radiology at CHI, said. "It's a great thing for our patients and the surrounding community to be able to come to Dickinson and have their 3D mammograms performed here on-site, without having to make the long drive to Bismarck."
Becoming a surgeon is one of the lengthiest academic processes a person can undertake, generally requiring four years of undergraduate school, four years of medical school and three to 10 years of continuing residency and fellowship training—not to mention the near perpetual studying and practice required to be proficient and maintain licensures. Simply put, it's not something people do unless they have a calling for it.
As the first rays of golden-red Dakota sunlight peered above the eastern skyline, stretching its warming embrace across the short grass prairies of the Tracy Mountain Ranch, Kim and Andrea Shade saddled their horses 'Scoot' and 'Marlin' in preparation of riding out to Lone Tree Butte - a natural landmark on their property — to tend to their cattle.
On Thursday, Stark County Sheriff Terry Oestreich announced the official launch of Project Stand-Up. The initiative hasn't cost taxpayer's anything as a partnership with Sanford Health has covered a majority of the associated costs. Oestreich touted the program as being on the cutting edge of coordinated efforts between everyday citizens and law enforcement agencies to address the growing drug trade affecting the Midwest. The program first launched in South Dakota last May and has resulted in over 500 investigations to date, according to Project Stand-Up founder Dave Bean.
Nearly every great Western story has a scene where the sheriff deputizes the local townsfolk to aid in running the bad guys out of town. A modern technological equivalent will soon have Dickinson residents being "deputized" against crime in their own neighborhoods—and across the Western Edge. Stark County Sheriff Terry Oestreich has announced his agency's participation in Project Stand Up, a national drug crime and school violence prevention program.
In mid-October of last year, Mikal and Lisa Schwindt were less than a month away from a nightmare that would alter their lives forever. Mikal was excited with the progress of his exercise regime, watching the pounds shed with each visit to the scale. Then, he started feeling pain in his right heel near the bottom of the foot. Doctors said it was plantar fasciitis and a pinched nerve, ordering rest and physical therapy. Within hours, the numbness in his right foot began to grow more intense.

When Mandy Wilson's younger brother, Cody, fell from a bridge in Fargo on a winter day in 2016, she remembers rushing to the hospital and witnessing medical professionals attempting to save his life. "I remember watching as pints upon pints of blood were brought into the emergency room as they attempted to save his life," said Wilson.
