ECKELSON/SANBORN, N.D.—John and Joe Weber didn't think they were in for much of a storm when they woke up Thursday morning. "I got up, I didn't see any dark clouds," John said. "I didn't think anything of it, thought it was just wind. Then I heard the hail." The Weber brothers live on the same land their parents first got in 1935. Their home is located on 101st Avenue Southeast, about a mile south of Interstate 94 at Exit 276. Joe said he and his brother have been living on the property since 1951.

With about $6,000 sitting in the Stutsman County historical tax account, there could be a new, large U.S. flag flying at Fort Seward in Jamestown in the near future. The Stutsman County Commission heard a suggestion Tuesday from Alden Kollman, treasurer for the Stutsman County Musuem, that the County Commission consider levying the full one-quarter-mill property tax to fully fund the county historical levy.
