DICKINSON, N.D. — In light of a pair of judges siding with Meridian Energy Group over environmental and regulatory challenges earlier this month, CEO Bill Prentice offered some insight via email into what the path forward for the Davis Refinery — and possibly the oil industry as a whole — will look like.
BEACH, N.D. — Home on the Range, a working, therapeutic ranch for children located near Beach, recently laid off 17 workers as a consequence of a dramatic drop in referrals, which the ranch's director said are due to the passage of new federal legislation. This legislation, the Family First Prevention Services Act, was placed within the recent 2018 Bipartisan Budget Act, which was passed in February.
MEDORA, N.D.—A new Medora Wish Endowment Fund has granted its first dream come true. The honor belonged to John Wright of Spearfish, S.D., who was born with physical disabilities, and cannot speak. But his smile communicated beyond words as he gripped the hand of Bill Sorensen, who led him around the scenic overlook that gazes down on the musical stage as his wish came true. Wright has had an eagerness to visit Medora and that wish was the first thanks to the new fund that Don Clement co-created alongside his wife, Patty, and another family, Michael and Vicky Zuhn.
FRYBURG, N.D. — In far western North Dakota near Theodore Roosevelt National Park and the unincorporated community of Fryburg, Terry Logan's land is largely a sea of grassland and some gentle hills, interspersed by fences—and in places conspicuous patches of rust-colored earth where nothing grows.
DICKINSON, N.D.—When Eastern Cattle filed for bankruptcy in 2010, it left hundreds of businesses and individuals high and dry. At the time, it was among the largest cattle dealers in the nation. Its owners were convicted for fraud in federal court years later, but the damage was already done.
MEDORA, N.D.—With the decision now made to focus efforts on bringing the Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Library to the Medora area, the board of trustees for the Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Library Foundation, along with Gov. Doug Burgum, met Friday morning, Aug. 3, in Medora to discuss the next chapter in the story of the creation of a presidential library and museum for America's 26th president.
MEDORA, N.D.—The death of Lyle Glass, better known as Cowboy Lyle, has had quite an effect on the North Dakota Badlands town of Medora. For many tourists and townsfolk, he could often be seen riding through the Old West streets on horseback clad in western regalia greeting them and always with a saddlebag of sweets for the wide-eyed children who had never seen a real cowboy before.
DICKINSON, N.D.—Dickinson State University is entering into a partnership with Bismarck State College to help return technical education programs to the university as it looks to become more "nimble" in addressing the workplace needs of western North Dakota.
DICKINSON, N.D.—There's been a lot of thunder, lightning and rain in western North Dakota this past week, emblematic of a fairly wet summer season that producers find a welcome change to how things were last year. "I would have to suggest ... that we are free of drought," Byron Richard, a rancher in the Belfield area in far western North Dakota, said in a phone interview. "Pasture is looking as good as I've seen in three years now. Crops side, the canola crops I've seen look very good."
DICKINSON, N.D.—The Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum will not be built in Dickinson, but questions remain as to what has become of taxpayer dollars allocated to the project as it is shifted to a new proposed location near Medora. Specifically, $2.2 million of a $12.5 million legislative appropriation has already been spent, and that money is not going to be returned to the state.
