When a vehicle was stolen off the lot at the Wilhelm Chevrolet Buick GMC dealership in Jamestown on May 3, Rod Wilhelm and Tom Wilhelm said they thought it was just a one-time thing. After the fifth vehicle was stolen in six weeks, they know that is not the case. "We kept saying after the first or second one was taken 'they're done,'" Rod Wilhelm said. "But then they kept coming back. I haven't heard of any other dealers in town getting hit like this."
The city of Medina will receive a $3.5 million grant from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for water and sewer infrastructure improvements. The office of U.S. Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D., announced Monday that the Corps included the money in its fiscal year 2018 budget that will fund about half of Medina's planned improvements to its water and sewer infrastructure. Heitkamp said in a phone interview that she had seen that Medina was on the Corps list of potential projects back in March and she wanted to help make sure the small town got the support it needed.
