FRYBURG, N.D. — In far western North Dakota near Theodore Roosevelt National Park and the unincorporated community of Fryburg, Terry Logan's land is largely a sea of grassland and some gentle hills, interspersed by fences—and in places conspicuous patches of rust-colored earth where nothing grows.
DICKINSON, N.D.—When Eastern Cattle filed for bankruptcy in 2010, it left hundreds of businesses and individuals high and dry. At the time, it was among the largest cattle dealers in the nation. Its owners were convicted for fraud in federal court years later, but the damage was already done.
MEDORA, N.D.—The death of Lyle Glass, better known as Cowboy Lyle, has had quite an effect on the North Dakota Badlands town of Medora. For many tourists and townsfolk, he could often be seen riding through the Old West streets on horseback clad in western regalia greeting them and always with a saddlebag of sweets for the wide-eyed children who had never seen a real cowboy before.
DICKINSON, N.D.—Dickinson State University is entering into a partnership with Bismarck State College to help return technical education programs to the university as it looks to become more "nimble" in addressing the workplace needs of western North Dakota.
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. Specifically, $2.2 million of a $12.5 million legislative appropriation has already been spent, and that money is not going to be returned to the state.
DICKINSON, N.D.—There will be no Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Library in Dickinson after a decision by the Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Library Foundation Board to build the library near the Theodore Roosevelt National Park 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. 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.
