MINOT, N.D. – Police here have released the name of a toddler killed in a hit-and-run Sunday and are asking for the public’s help in identifying a pickup truck considered to be a vehicle of interest in the incident.
WILLISTON, N.D. -- Sixth-graders at a rural elementary school in western North Dakota had to transfer after their teacher decided to skip school — for the entire year.
Williston New Public School District Principal Steve Guglich said Friday the 13 sixth-grade students at Round Prairie Elementary were moved to Stony Creek Elementary after he and Round Prairie Principal Robert Smith considered their options. The schools are about 20 miles apart.
WILLISTON, N.D. — Oh, to be a fly on the wall at The Bakken Club.
The club is in a storefront on Main Street in Williston, but to get inside takes thousands of dollars and the blessing of a current member.
And with the current members -- Halliburton, Weatherford, Statoil and other big Bakken players -- the deals made amid the exclusivity and privacy that the money buys have to be big.
In Williston, where bars and strip clubs are common, but corporate go-tos like Starbucks are far from the reality, Joel Lundeen saw an opportunity to fill a niche.
"There was just a real void in the market," said Lundeen, co-owner of the club.
PRAIRIE ROSE, N.D. – Three hours before a 1978 state law went into effect barring a new city to incorporate with fewer than 200 people, Prairie Rose was founded.
That tiny dot on a Cass County map completely surrounded by Fargo isn’t a neighborhood of Fargo. It’s a tiny but independent city with 21 houses and 73 residents. It has a geographical footprint of just 0.04 square miles – equal to a square of about 1,050 feet on each side.
MCKENZIE, N.D. — Jerry Doan always figured his oldest son would return to the family farm and make agriculture his lifelong career. But the elder Doan was a bit surprised when his three other children said they wanted to come back, too.
“I told them, ‘There’s not income to support all of you. If you want to come back, you’ll have to come up with another source of income that the farm can generate,’ ” he says.
DICKINSON, N.D. -- While the U.S. continues to lose cattle, North Dakota is moving up to the head of the herd.
A U.S. Department of Agriculture study released in July revealed a nationwide cattle inventory of 95 million as of July 1. Those numbers were down 3 percent from the 2012 count of 97.8 million. This count was the lowest for July since the series began in 1973.
DICKINSON, N.D. -- Ken Molitor was a college-educated rancher and farmer -- known in part for his ability to train cattle dogs, heelers that ended up all over the country. But he also worked long hours in the oilfields to keep the family farm afloat.
Then one day he walked into a place he regularly visited in Dickinson to buy some sausage.
And that's the moment his life changed -- for the Wurst.
The Wurst Shop in Dickinson, that is.
It's a story he still finds a little unbelievable.
FARGO, N.D. – A novel way to market a new home is starting the next chapter.
The “House That Likes Built” is set for a grand opening Thursday when Thomsen Homes of Fargo opens the doors to a home designed around input from the public that was collected via social media.
“It has been exciting to watch the community be involved with this unique building project from start to finish,” said Chris Thomsen, president of Thomsen Homes.
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- North Dakota's lone member of the House of Representatives is accusing a government agency of keeping secret maps of wetlands and waters with no intention of releasing them to the public.
Revised forecast for current biennium is $2.2B higher than previous estimate; Democrat blasts projections as ‘entirely unreliable’
BISMARCK – North Dakota is poised to collect nearly $9.8 billion in oil tax revenue during the next two years and $2.2 billion more than previously forecast for 2013-15, according to a new outlook released Friday that had elected leaders calling for additional tax relief, greater funding for western counties and more accurate forecasts.
RHAME, N.D. -- It’s not known whose idea it was -- to poison people by using strychnine-laced food that a wagon train purposely left behind during a September 1864 battle with the Sioux, said Dean Pearson, president of the Bowman County Historical Society.
WILLISTON, N.D. -- Emily Gathje is used to working in a man’s world.
The St. Charles, Minn., native served with the U.S. Marine Corps for more than eight years before coming to North Dakota’s Oil Patch to work as an airport operations manager at Sloulin Field International Airport in Williston.
