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.

DICKINSON, N.D.—Work continues on the design for the Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Library that is planned to be built on Dickinson State University land, despite uncertainty voiced about the project's direction from Gov.

DICKINSON, N.D.—Dickinson State University's Theodore Roosevelt Center celebrated an important milestone in their mission to transcribe the writings of Theodore Roosevelt on Wednesday, April 4, with Governor Doug Burgum making an appearance to celebrate the scanning of their 50,000th document. The scale of the project has always been a challenge.
DICKINSON, N.D.—Work on the Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Library in Dickinson must start by the end of the year or risk losing funding and the president of the university where it's located said it will be done and also that he's in favor of the splitting up of the library and a museum in Medora as it's "the best of two worlds." The Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Library Foundation made the decision on the two sites at a meeting last month in Minneapolis.
