The state has spent nearly $38,000 to investigate the cause of 180 salmonella-related illness in McLean and Sheridan counties last summer.
North Dakota Department of Health spokeswoman Loreeta Canton said more than $27,000 went toward staffing and $10,000 for lab fees and travel costs.
No travel has been advised on Emmons County's secondary and county roads because of blowing snow and poor visibility, according to the North Dakota Department of Emergency Services.
Also, no travel has been advised on secondary roads in Sheridan County because of snow accumulation and drifting snow. County snowplows are not going out there.
The North Dakota Department of Transportation issued a travel alert shortly before 5 p.m. today for southwest North Dakota due to freezing rain and all roads in the northwest and central North Dakota due to blowing and drifting snow and snow fog which is causing hazardous driving conditions with reduced visibility on the roadways.
A special supper to promote local foods is scheduled for 6 p.m. Monday at the Bowdon Community Center, 121 Warrington Ave., in Bowdon.
“We’re looking for folks in a five-county area who are interested in developing and implementing a local foods initiative in central North Dakota,” said Agriculture Commissioner Roger Johnson. “It will be an opportunity to learn more about the local foods movement and what you can do to promote it.”
