U.S. presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said on Thursday the challenges facing Americans demand steady leadership and a collective spirit, contrasting her character with what she described as a dangerous and volatile Donald Trump.


In the biggest speech of her more than 25-year-old career in the public eye, Clinton accepted the Democratic presidential nomination for the Nov. 8 election with a promise to make the United States a country that worked for everyone.

A Dickinson Public Schools specialist is branching out to start her own private practice.

Dana Price, a speech-language pathologist who works in the district’s schools, has opened Simply Speech Services LLC to provide early intervention speech and language therapy services intended for younger children before they enter the school system.


Price, a 15-year employee of the school district, described early intervention as her passion and said she primarily works with preschool-aged children who have speech or articulation difficulties. Moving forward, Price hopes to secure contracting through the district to remediate speech errors before the children get to school.
