A Kathryn, N.D., couple is scheduled to make an initial appearance on Tuesday on a charge of animal neglect after 64 dogs were seized from their property last week, according to Southeast District Court records. Ginger, either 31 or 32, and Karl Helland, either 32 or 33, were each charged with animal neglect. A review by a Southeast District Court judge found there was probable cause for the case to continue. Court records indicate Judge Jay Schmitz has been assigned to the case. Animal neglect is a Class A misdemeanor punishable by one year in prison and a $3,000 fine.
Summer storms have changed little over the centuries. Weather systems sweep across the prairies, bringing winds, rain, lightning and sometimes tornadoes and hail. Modern technology provides watches and warnings that are now delivered through smartphone apps as well as sirens and radio. People are much better informed about the weather, but there is still little we can do about it.

The James River Valley Library System Board of Directors approved about $16,000 in updates to electrical and security systems during its meeting Monday. Joe Rector, library director for the library system, said $8,000 would be used to replace lights at the Stutsman County Library that had become a danger. The fluorescent light fixtures are recessed into the ceiling, but the covers are becoming brittle and not remaining in place. The fixtures will be replaced with LED light fixtures, which will use less electricity than the current systems.

Mike Romans and his wife, Erin, will spend Father's Day weekend in Fargo attending their adopted daughter's softball tournament with their adopted son and two foster children. One of the foster children is part of a respite program where the Romans are helping out another foster family for the weekend.
