BISMARCK — Repairs to a gasoline-making unit damaged by a blaze at Tesoro Corp.’s North Dakota refinery aren’t expected to be completed for several weeks, the company said Friday.
The company said the Jan. 19 fire had cut production at the Mandan plant by about 10 percent, though the refinery has provided an adequate amount of fuel products to its customers since then.

KAISER, Mo. — At state parks across the nation, this is the toll of the deepening budget crisis and years of financial neglect: crumbling roads, faltering roofs, deteriorating restrooms.
Electrical and sewer systems are beginning to give out, too, as are scores of park buildings, some of them built by the Civilian Conservation Corps during the Great Depression. In a few places, aging bridges have been detoured and tunnels blocked off because of falling debris.

Keith Schoon can still operate a bicycle repair shop out of his West Fargo home garage, but he needs to make some changes, city officials said.
Since June 2008, the 65-year-old retiree has repaired hundreds of bicycles that he either sells at a small profit, or donates free of charge to neighborhood children — an act some West Fargo residents have praised as “a service to the community.”

A year ago today, a car carrying 8-year-old Amanda Leininger hit a rut on the shoulder of Fargo’s South University Drive, resulting in a crash that claimed her life.
The tragedy led to a sweeping review of city policies, and changes in how complaints are handled, Public Safety Director Al Weigel said Wednesday.
One internal change — aimed at cutting the confusion that delayed repairs on the rut — is that city crews will no longer worry about whether problems on a road are a state or city responsibility. They’ll fix them first, and determine jurisdiction later

Reed Schwartzkopf, City Engineer, shared with Rotary members on some of the issues during the past year between snow, flooding and road repair. Fighting water and then the challenges of trying to get reimbursed from the government entities is almost as painful as physically sandbagging.
Jamestown has received FEMA approval and funding to get four of the streets badly damaged by flooding fixed before winter makes road work impossible.
The City Council voted Monday to proceed with emergency roadway repair approved by FEMA. City Engineer Reed Schwartzkopf said it constitutes about $600,000 worth of work, which has already been allocated through FEMA. With the funding available, work can begin soon on the four streets.
