The two sides agreed on the deal last year subject to court approval. U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan approved the terms Thursday.

GRAND FORKS (AP) — Some farmers in Walsh and Traill counties are already combining their fields due to an earlier start to the growing season.
Walsh County Extension Agent Brad Brummond said the early start is an anomaly.
Brummond said harvest is at least three weeks ahead of schedule. He said last year some farmers didn’t start until Labor Day.
The impression I get from all this talk of the Fargo Diversion is the people supporting the diversion are the most arrogant and selfish people in the state of North Dakota. First, they want to make a wasteland out of about 6,500 acres of some of the best farmland in the world. Second, they want to dump the water downstream with no concern about the people who live there or their livelihoods. Third, these 6,500 acres will be off the tax roll so everyone’s taxes in Cass County will go up. Fourth, they want these same people to come to Fargo and pay more sales taxes for the privilege of having more water thrown at them and/or their taxes raised.
Elizabeth Stella has been promoted from director-field operations to state executive director of the Heartland States for Farmers Insurance Group of Companies, announced Deb Settle, senior vice president, Northern Zone.
In his 60 years on the farm, Milton Sovo Jr. has raised everything from peanuts and wheat to cattle and horses in southwestern Oklahoma. At about 1,100 acres, his spread is about triple the size of the typical U.S. farm.

Some Southern lawmakers are seeking billions of dollars in emergency aid for farmers after recent natural disaster declarations in at least 20 states.
A farm disaster program authorized by Congress last year still isn’t fully in place, and even if it was, some lawmakers say its design could keep many farmers with losses this year waiting for help until January 2011.

Area farmers will still be combining corn at Christmas.
“It’s going to be another month or so until we’re done,” said Duane Dows, a Page, N.D., farmer.
This is no ordinary year for Dows and other area producers, who normally wrap up their corn harvest in November.
