A planned road to connect the Menards area to the Jamestown Regional Medical Center may be headed back to the drawing board, according to Jamestown Mayor Katie Andersen. "The negotiation with one landowner has not succeeded," she said. "We're still hoping but looking at alternative routing." Andersen said there are four landowners along the route of the road. Three of the four have agreed to easements with the city. Liechty Associates owns less than one-third of the distance of the road and has not agreed to an easement.
Four candidates for the two District 12 House of Representative seats all oppose the negativity of the race. "I'm really disappointed in the negativity," said Bernie Satrom, a Republican candidate. "It's on both sides, attacks on Jessica (Haak) but Katie (Andersen) as well. What's disturbing is the personal nature of the attacks." A campaign postcard sent out by Andersen, a Republican candidate for the District 12 Senate seat and current Jamestown mayor, had a target drawn on it and holes punched in it before it was placed at Andersen's business last week.

Jamestown Mayor Katie Andersen said a defaced postcard bearing her picture left at her business was "hateful and threatening." Andersen is the Republican candidate for the Senate in District 12 challenging Sen. John Grabinger, D-Jamestown. Andersen said the postcard was left at Blue Star Dry Cleaning and Beyond Saturday morning. It had a target drawn on her face and had holes that made it look as if the postcard had been shot.
A Jamestown man who called police after someone allegedly broke into his house and stole drugs and cash was sentenced on a felony drug charge Tuesday in Southeast District Court in Jamestown.

A proposed ordinance requiring traffic impact studies for some development projects was moved to the City Council meeting without recommendation on a 3-1 vote Tuesday during the Jamestown Finance & Legal Committee meeting. Mayor Katie Andersen cast the dissenting vote and Councilman Ramone Gumke was absent. Andersen said the ordinance included a list of circumstances when a traffic study could be required, but didn't define what would justify requiring a traffic study. She also expressed concerns about the cost.
