His eldest child, Donald Trump Jr., announced the support of New York, their home state, during a roll-call vote at the Republican National Convention, ensuring Trump had the majority of delegates - 1,237 - needed to contest the Nov. 8 U.S. presidential election against presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.


Weeks after man’s disappearance, wife still determined he can be found

It’s been more than three weeks since Zackary Baldwin disappeared while on a motorcycle ride, and Jessica Baldwin continues to search. She still has help from volunteers, but the numbers that turned out early this month to scour roadsides and rough terrain have dwindled.

Despite the time that’s passed, Baldwin remains determined to find her husband, and is convinced that he is somewhere close to their home about six miles west of Williston.

Patterson Lake facility project accepts feasibility study

A citizen task force attempting to bring a waterfront recreation facility to Patterson Lake voted on Tuesday to accept a feasibility study that looked favorably on a potential $5.17 million facility.

Zika was found in a man who had traveled to Costa Rica. He was not hospitalized for the illness, the department said.
