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.
DICKINSON, N.D.—The Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Library Foundation Board voted unanimously to empower its leadership to look into alternative sites for the Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Library, in light of a new, large donor. Wally Goulet, the foundation's CEO, described the situation as a "friendly takeover" during an online board meeting. "When you have a donor of the potential size that we have, I liken it to a friendly takeover in the corporate world," he said. "They get to at least call some shots on (possible locations)."
MEDORA, N.D.—A bison roundup is underway at Theodore Roosevelt National Park with the goal of relocating a portion of the park's bison population elsewhere to keep them from growing too numerous. It's a process that calls for manpower and machinery, as bison are processed through a series of chambers and into a hydraulic mechanism that holds them in place while hair and blood samples can be collected and tags affixed.
DICKINSON, N.D.—Sportsmen have found the normally abundant pheasant populations at the outset of this year's pheasant hunting season that opened last Saturday, Oct. 7, to be sparser than usual—the outcome of a series of unfortunate events for North Dakota's pheasant population.
