Lake Region State College in Devils Lake is banning tobacco on campus, beginning Monday.
College president Mike Bower says the ban will cover smoking and chewing tobacco. It will extend to everyone on campus, including students, employees and visitors.
Part of a historic building on the North Dakota State campus collapsed Sunday amid an ongoing expansion project.
A large section of the north side of Minard Hall gave way between midnight and 3 a.m., leaving a gaping hole in the century-old building.
Giving back to one’s country, making a donation in a family member’s memory or simply because there’s a need, is one of the most selfless actions anyone can make.
During the season of giving we are made aware of Jamestown residents who have given so much for so many yet have received little in the area of kudos or praise. Any time a person needs to go to the west entry of Jamestown College administration building, (formerly known simply as Taber Hall), the journey now takes the visitor through a beautiful facade that opens onto a bilevel set of stairs and through several floors of updates and modernity that saved the traditional beauty of old wood finishes and fine architectural detail.

North Dakota State University no longer will require a campus police captain to protect NDSU President Joseph Chapman and his family.
Chapman ordered campus police to eliminate that requirement. He said he wanted to avoid “public misperception” that the job is that of the president’s bodyguard.
The House barely passed a watered-down version of the bill to allow people with concealed weapons permits or who have taken a hunter safety course to have guns on North Dakota college campuses. The vote Wednesday was 48-46.

Crazed gunmen like the one who killed 32 people at Virginia Tech in April 2007 take advantage of the fact that people possessing concealed weapons permits can’t carry guns on campus, says the sponsor of a bill expanding where concealed weapons would be allowed in North Dakota.
Those bent on slaughter know that, “and then they can go do their carnage,” said Rep. Duane DeKrey, R-Pettibone, prime sponsor of the bill that allows those with permits to have guns at public gatherings, sporting events, political rallies and other places, including college campuses.
