The North Dakota Public Service Commission is holding its hearing on the Brady Wind Energy Center proposed for Stark County Wednesday. The much-anticipated hearing comes six days after a district judge dismissed an injunction filed by a local citizen group against the county’s commissioners and planning and zoning board, which approved the permits for the 87-turbine wind farm in December, as well as the company aiming to build it.

It’s good for the entire state. “I think this brings to light just how consequential this election is and just how important a role North Dakota plays in it with 28 unbound delegates,” said Trandem, a Cruz supporter who chairs District 45 covering the north Fargo area. “The presidential sweepstakes may well be decided by 28 votes, and that puts North Dakota squarely in play, and that’s a position we’ve not occupied in the past.” “It puts us on the national map,” he added.

Jack Dalrymple on Tuesday to call a special legislative session to restore about $50 million that was slashed from agency budgets in February to deal with a massive revenue shortfall, but the governor gave the idea a cool reception. Senate Minority Leader Mac Schneider, D-Grand Forks, said the purpose of a special session would be to respond to the shortfall more strategically, “rather than just abiding by across-the-board cuts that in some cases make little sense and in many cases fall on those who are least able to bear the cost.” UND hockey's defeat of Michigan in the books as dominating effort [[{"type":"media","view_mode":"media_preview","fid":"2424586","attributes":{"alt":"","class":"media-image","height":"180","title":"","typeof":"foaf:Image","width":"180"}}]]University of Michigan fans sat quietly for much of Saturday’s NCAA Midwest Regional final in Cincinnati’s U.S. Bank Arena.
