Downtown Dickinson is rocking a new addition—Salt of the Earth, a locally owned store that offers saltwater flotation therapy, crystals, salt lamps and other health-focused additions to the home and office.
The final form of the 2018 Farm Bill will be shaped by all of North Dakota's U.S. legislators—Rep. Kevin Cramer, Sens. Heidi Heitkamp and John Hoeven—who have been named to the Farm Bill Conference Committee with the goal of producing a working bill ready for signature. They have until Sept. 30 before the current law expires—and both wings of the Legislature are currently out of session.
The little town of Medora continues to grow as the Theodore Roosevelt Medora Foundation (TRMF) continues work to put the finishing touches on the Elkhorn Quarters, an affordable accommodation option for families and employees to the popular western attraction. "Harold (Schafer)'s vision for Medora is a place for families," Daniel Gannarelli, marketing specialist with Medora, said. "The one thing he always had in mind on the business side of that vision is that Medora needs a room that is under $100, so that families don't have to break the bank to come here."
Even Thor was bested when he wrestled with time. The force which we call time, the movement of the stars and the entropy of flesh, it is unyielding and absolute. Like a force of water upon a stone, over time carving a valley where once stood a mountain, time will make even the mightiest monument crumble. We marvel at the defiance of time—from pyramids to patriarchs—and we all of us seek to squirrel away as much of this precious resource as we can.
Their fur still damp from a recent bath, a pair of puppies squirm about as Steph Arthaud wraps them in a towel and gently brings them to join their mewling brothers and sisters in a kennel on the grass. These are just a pair from the latest litter that Raise the Woof helped save—a litter now up for adoption.
As Dickinson's Herberger's store continues its slow closure, aisles festooned with colorful discount signs, the store's associates continue to mingle with customers, making sales and swapping smiles. Brightly grinning, Vicky Zander checks out items for a pair of women, encouraging them to come back next week for even deeper discounts. They share some lively banter and familiar conversation. Another customer asks her assistance, and Zander gets to know her with some small talk, discovering she's here from out of state, visiting family.
The first-ever Cannonball Mud Run challenged participants to a lengthy obstacle course of slick mud pits, precipitous plunges into river waters and hillside encampments well guarded by aquatic artillery.
St. Joseph’s Catholic Church has stood for 116 years, providing spiritual nourishment to its parish and honoring an immigrant past. “This church began when the Diocese of Bismarck was non-existent. In 1902, this church was established,” Pastor Keith Streifel, head priest at St. Joseph’s, said. “We were a long ways away, we were Germans talking to an Irish bishop.”
First on First, the local weekly summertime event, brings all manner of interesting folks to Dickinson's downtown to check out live music and sample food truck delicacies—but these days, it isn't just the meals that are going mobile. "It's a dream come true," Brittani Dennis said inside her clothing boutique called Tumbleweed Boutique. It's an apt name, because despite the brick-like wall designs or the wooden floorboards, this wasn't a typical downtown clothing store—it was on wheels.
