MAPLETON, N.D. - A semi ran into the back of a trailer being towed by a pickup on Interstate 94 just west of Mapleton last week, causing both vehicles to jackknife, the North Dakota Highway Patrol reported. No one was injured in the crash about 10:10 a.m. Thursday, July 12, and westbound traffic was still able to move around the vehicles on the shoulder, the Patrol said in a report released Monday, July 16. According to the report:
FARGO — The United Way of Cass-Clay announced a goal of securing 6,000 filled backpacks at the launch of its 20th annual School Supply Drive Wednesday, July 11, at the Scheels store on 45th Street South. Bill Mitchell, president of Scheels, kicked off the campaign by announcing a donation of 500 backpacks. "We're proud to be a partner with the United Way and have been since its inception in 1998 when we kicked this off," Mitchel said. "Thousands of students have been impacted through this great program."
Madeleine Albright gives us a chilling message, in fact, “a warning.” And she isn’t kidding. In her latest book, “Fascism,” she cites historian Robert Paxton who tells us: “Fascism was the major political innovation of the 20th Century.” Benito and Adolf are glaring examples. Fascism, an extreme form of authoritarian rule, often starts quietly and incrementally as a bottom-up movement, rather than top-down.
I read Mike McFeely’s latest attack piece on Rep. Al Carlson , R-Fargo, June 14 and was reminded of an old industry joke that pretty well sums up McFeely’s articles on Carlson. If McFeely happened to see Al Carlson step out of a boat and walk across the water to shore he wouldn’t ask the normal reporter’s question--how is that possible? Instead I would expect McFeely to write a column entitled: Al Carlson can’t swim!
I read a couple of letters to the editor recently about the packed and understaffed office at the driver's license bureau and also about how long it has taken people to get their license. As a former North Dakotan, I totally agree with these folks.
FARGO — A group will assemble next week at North Dakota State University to code drone flight patterns and develop virtual reality games. The event isn't a workshop for college students or professional coders and engineers. Instead, the 50-plus participants will be young girls ages 10 to 18 participating in uCodeGirl, a summer tech camp designed to encourage young girls to pursue careers in computer science and technology.
