Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel demanded more information Wednesday after the Air Force removed 17 launch officers from duty at a nuclear missile base in North Dakota over what a commander called "rot" in the force. The Air Force struggled to explain, acknowledging concern about an "attitude problem" but telling Congress the weapons were secure.
North Dakota's governor and congressional delegation say the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has awarded the city of Minot and Ward County more than $40 million in disaster relief funding.
Minot officials are proposing that part of a half-cent city sales tax be used to help pay for a flood control project.
The money would come out of an existing tax that is now split with 50 percent going to capital improvements, 40 percent to economic development and 10 percent for property tax relief.
A preliminary schedule for a Minot flood protection plan was laid out last week for members of the city council, and one thing is crystal clear after that presentation: Should Minot opt to move forward with the current plan, it will be a long, costly process with construction stretching to 2025.
