When George Sinner served as North Dakota’s governor in the 1980s, not all the secrets he kept were political.
He once punched a state legislator. He rousted a teenage beer party at the governor’s residence. And as governor, Sinner continued a habit of giving rides to strangers he saw along the highway.

NEW RICHMOND, Wis. — A local pastor has authored a book to challenge Christians to live a more light-filled life.
“Radiance: If we are the light of the world, why is everything so dark?” was written by Randy Dean, pastor of Living Word Chapel in Forest, Wis.
“I’m pretty beside myself with happiness about this,” Dean said. “I’ve been aiming at writing a book for a long time.”

The Rev. Tom Eckstein will be selling and signing copies of his new book, “Bearing Their Burden,” at The Mustard Seed in The Buffalo Mall from 7 to 9 p.m. Dec. 10 and 1 to 3 p.m. Dec. 11. The cost of each book is $29.99 (plus tax).
Eckstein’s 370-page book explains what Scripture teaches about the issue of homosexuality. His book also addresses how people can reach out in love and compassion to individuals and families experiencing by this issue.
Members of the Bookworms, a Jamestown book club, met Sunday to decide their itinerary and places to eat while in Chicago next weekend.
This is no ordinary outing for the book club members. In fact, it’s so out of the ordinary, the women can hardly contain their excitement. On Friday, 10 of them are going to be in the audience of the “Oprah Winfrey Show.” The consensus is “we are so lucky.”
The Rev. Tom Eckstein, pastor of Concordia Lutheran Church in Jamestown, has authored “Bearing Their Burdens, Speaking the Truth in Love to People Burdened by Homosexuality.”
The 370-page book has been lauded as thoroughly pastoral, evangelical and biblical. His ministry with gays goes back to his college days.He said the book shows how Scripture clearly condemns even consensual, monogamous homosexual behavior and that biblical prohibitions against homosexuality behavior still apply.
New author Jaclyn Olson hopes something helpful results from the telling of her family’s tragedy.
Olson has published a new book, “Wonderfully Made — A journey of faith, blessings and love during pregnancy loss.”

Vernon Keel, author of the recently released novel, “The Murdered Family,” will be traveling through North Dakota during the last half of April to talk about his book and visit with people about the story of the Wolf family murders.
A new book tells about a unit of North Dakota soldiers in the Pacific Theater from 1942 to 1945. “They Were Ready” unfolds the tale of the 164th Infantry Regiment as told by 70 veterans of World War II.
Twenty-three pages into a book he wrote before he forgets the details, Larry Kaiser begins the story of his life-changing accident.
“Facing the World Single Handed” tells about the 1949 incident when Kaiser, who now lives in Texas, was 14 years old and lost his arm. It also tells about how he’s recovered and gone on to play football, golf, pool and do woodworking, just like anyone else would.
