The Rough Riders Hotel, which he later purchased in 1963, was a shell of what it had been when it was built in the late 1800s. The streets were made of dirt and sidewalks were nonexistent. Running water and sewer, a commodity residents in modern towns couldn’t imagine not having, were absent.

 

The Arc Aid Thrift Store to open new $2.5 million building in August

The Arc of Dickinson has came along way since its start in 1969. Joan Neidhart and other parents first started the store to provide more for their children with disabilities.

During that time, the Arc Aid Thrift Store operated out of a garage attached to a house, which later became part of the storefront.

The 15-year-old from Underwood, N.D., underwent a partial amputation of his right leg after he was diagnosed with bone cancer at age 6. The partial amputation, called rotationplasty, removed part of his femur below the hip to just under his knee. His foot was then turned around and reattached to his femur to act as a knee joint. He wears a prosthesis so he can walk.
