Jessina Kary said she wasn't sure what had happened when her son, Isaac, stopped receiving his monthly book through the mail from the Dolly Parton's Imagination Library program. She wondered if there had been a mixup in her address after her family had moved.

Ken Shirek, who owns and operates Shirek Buffalo with his family, said the main reason for bringing White Cloud back to the family’s buffalo farm in Michigan, N.D., was White Cloud’s health. School board agrees to reimburse district specialists The Dickinson Public School Board agreed at a special meeting held Monday evening to grant some additional reimbursements to address grievances presented by a set of specialists employed by the district. Five speech-language pathologists employed by the district first appeared at an April 18 meeting of the DPS board to present a request for compensation for an additional 75 days of work that they said surpassed the number of hours included in their labor contracts. In that meeting, the specialists said the departure of three of their peers since last year has increased the amount of work tasked to the remaining individuals.
