WATFORD CITY, N.D. -- I seriously considered phoning this assignment in.
I feared that driving from Williston to Watford City in heavy rain Thursday on a deadly stretch of Oil Patch highway to a press conference on road safety might make me another statistic.
But with 48 traffic fatalities so far this year -- 12 of those in McKenzie County -- there is no topic that deserves more news coverage in western North Dakota than highway safety.
WILLISTON, N.D. - One man was shot in the face outside a strip club. Another was stabbed after drinking with his crew camp roommate.

MINNEAPOLIS – In a simple, matter-of-fact way, Reina del Cid calls herself a “big nerd.”
In fact, the Fargo native, who returns home with her band Reina del Cid and the Cidizens this weekend, named her guitar after El Cid – an 11th-century knight featured in Spanish literature.
It’s February, which means the Season of Love is about to begin.
Every year around this time, Tony and I sit down to plan our Valentine’s Day menu for Sarello’s, and we love to include as many aphrodisiac foods as possible, just to help out those couples seeking some added romance with their loved ones.
