RAY, N.D. – U.S. Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky blasted the northwestern North Dakota town of Ray this week for a sewer lagoon expansion he called a “costly gamble,” but a city official says the Republican senator failed to get all the facts.
FARGO, N.D. -- Between 2007 and 2008, I had the opportunity take part in the WDAY Honor Flight trips, a communitywide effort to send World War II veterans, free of charge to Washington, D.C., to see the World War II Memorial.

DICKINSON, N.D. -- It’s a simple looking thing that has the same size and appearance of a bandage. And while it doesn’t look like much, the white adhesive is absorbing sweat that will later be registered into a computer and determine whether or not an individual has been using drugs.
Residents worry about environmental, proprietal consequences
MANNING, N.D.--Glen Houghton, a Dunn County rancher, walked onto a portion of his land Friday and pointed to patches of bare clay on the ground.

BISMARCK, N.D. – Attorneys representing North Dakota college students soon won’t have to sit on the sidelines during university disciplinary hearings that could lead to suspension or expulsion.
State lawmakers gave final approval Monday to Senate Bill 2150, which gives students at the state’s 11 public colleges and universities the right to be represented – at their own expense – by an attorney or advocate who may “fully participate” in such disciplinary hearings.
The right doesn’t apply to matters involving academic misconduct.
Assistance for human trafficking victims also approved
BISMARCK, N.D. – After being criticized for yanking funding from the bill a week ago, House lawmakers voted Monday to restore $250,000 to legislation designed to shorten wait times for rape victims who need sexual assault examinations.
Lawmakers also gave final approval to a bill with $1.25 million in grant funding for organizations that provide treatment and shelter services for human trafficking victims.
“These victims are the definition of exploited, and we need to get them services,” said Sen. Kelly Armstrong, R-Dickinson.
BISMARCK, N.D. – Senators scratched language from a bill Monday that could have forced the North Dakota Public Employees Retirement System to rebid an expensive contract making Sanford Health Plan the insurance carrier for the group’s roughly 66,000 covered lives on July 1.
