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. Doug Burgum and others this week. A meeting of the facility's board of trustees on Monday, April 16, focused on disagreement with the current plan for splitting the proposed Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum with the library in Dickinson and the museum in Medora.
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.
BELFIELD, N.D. --= Meridian Energy Group wants to build the most sophisticated and state-of-the-art oil refinery to date in western North Dakota on the fringes of Theodore Roosevelt National Park, an aim they think they can reach thanks to key, cutting-edge technologies.
DICKINSON, N.D.—Wildlife groups and landowners are finding a common purpose, and considerable success, in conservation and land-use efforts. They are working together to build an intersection between private enterprise and public interest with regards to North Dakota's greatest treasure: its land.
DICKINSON, N.D.—The North Dakota Department of Health received mixed comments at a public hearing Wednesday night about a proposed oil refinery that would be built on the fringes of Theodore Roosevelt National Park. The majority of public comments veered negative, with a number of residents of the Belfield area and citizens from as far away as Bismarck and Grand Forks voicing concerns about the long-term air quality impacts that the proposed refinery would have as well as the damage it could cause to the views, wildlife and overall health of the park.
Though the snow glitters with ice, Kyle Kline crosses it in near silence. Cutting a narrow path through the snow, he moves steadily across the windswept grassland, snow drifts at times swallowing his legs up to the knee. The morning sun is high—he's been hunting coyotes for a few hours now, and so far, has nothing to show for it but a single wasted bullet. Hunting is a patient sport, but the anticipation is high—something has to come through at this stand.
DICKINSON, N.D. — As this year's farm bill continues to take shape, the question of what impact it will have on area farmers looms large. A presentation at this year's Diversity, Direction and Dollars agriculture forum in Dickinson on Jan. 4 by Bradley Lubben, Extension assistant professor and policy specialist for the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, suggested that any proposed legislation will be tasked with doing a lot with little money.
DICKINSON, N.D.—Once again, the Coyote Classic is coming to Dickinson, marking the 16th year of the two-day coyote hunting tournament, which will award cash and prizes to the team who can bag the most coyotes. "There's a lot of strategy (involved), that's why people like to do it," said Terri Thiel, executive director of the Dickinson Convention and Visitors Bureau. "It's a challenge. There's a lot of walking, and it's cold, cold, cold."
BISMARCK—North Dakota's Department of Mineral Resources believes 2018 will be a lot like 2017 when it comes to North Dakota energy. That isn't a bad thing, because 2017 ended on a high note with increased oil production toward the end of the year.
