  • New loos approved for Warsing Dam

    Nathan Price|Apr 10, 2023

    Taking care of business at Warsing Dam will soon be more enjoyable than ever. That’s right, county commissioners have moved forward with a plan to tear down and rebuild the bathrooms at the recreation area just east of Sheyenne. At their regular meeting on Tuesday, April 4, commissioners reviewed the floor plan and cost estimate for the project, provided by local contractor Dave Chenze. The plan is to tear down the two existing bathrooms, which have become old and unsightly, and replace them w...

  • Cuts to music staff at NR-S off table

    Nathan Price|Apr 10, 2023

    New Rockford-Sheyenne School Board President, Mike Jacobson, has announced the district is no longer considering the reduction of a music position. The potential of losing a music teacher had stirred strong emotions and generated spirited debate within the community and at subsequent school board meetings. The option was presented along with other potential spending cuts after preliminary budget projections had the school’s expenses exceeding their 2023-24 revenue by more than $100,000. Other o...

  • Cropland values in region hit new high

    Apr 10, 2023

    Despite high production costs to start 2022, net farm incomes remained high, helping facilitate a sharp rise in land prices for 2023, says Bryon Parman, North Dakota State University (NDSU) Extension agricultural finance specialist. The statewide average land price increase from 2022 to 2023 was 13.46 percent, which is higher than last year’s increase of 10.9 percent. Rents were also up considerably, rising 6.82 percent statewide, marking the largest increase in 10 years. The east-central region, which encompasses both Foster and Eddy c...

  • City's recent water issues caused by chemical mishap

  • Winter's last hurrah?

    Apr 10, 2023

    The eastern half of North Dakota got pummeled by winter weather yet again last week. In this screenshot from the ND Roads app taken around 9 p.m. on Wednesday, April 5, nearly all the roads in eastern North Dakota were closed to motorists, and dozens of incidents were reported. Around 6-8 inches of snow fell in our area, (much less than the 13-20 predicted), and blizzard conditions impacted travel. Crews worked all day Wednesday and Thursday to clear roads, and as of press time many had...

  • Are the regulatory burdens we put on businesses worth it?

    Peter Roff|Apr 10, 2023

    It’s budget time again – and the one President Joe Biden proposed is a beaut! Biden’s budget proposal is the kind of thing only a progressive could get enthused about. It grows the executive branch’s regulatory power, takes total yearly spending to nearly $10 trillion by 2033 (up from just over $6 billion now, post-Covid) and depends on increased regulatory enforcement actions to bring additional revenue in. That last idea is especially bad. Biden ran for the nomination as the moderate alterna...

  • Tax Day Wordplay

    Amy Wobbema|Apr 10, 2023

    "Death, taxes and childbirth! There's never any convenient time for any of them," writes author Margaret Mitchell. I second that, and I will add blizzards to the list, especially after the winter we've had in good ole NoDak. Tax Day is April 18, and this year it's a doozy. The IRS changed the W-4 form a couple of years ago, and since then many of us have been trying to crack the code that tells us exactly how many extra dollars to have withheld from each paycheck to avoid paying a boatload of...

  • U. of Wyoming Transgender lawsuit: Who is a woman?

    David Adler|Apr 10, 2023

    A federal lawsuit reflective of the nationwide culture wars is challenging the right of a University of Wyoming sorority to induct a transgender woman, raising questions of central importance to the First Amendment Right of freedom of association and Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. The issues in the suit are likely to be replicated across the nation as the judicial system wrestles with legislative efforts to regulate, distinguish and deny opportunities and rights of the LGBTQ community. Seven past and present members have filed suit in...

  • Sermonette: April 10, 2023

    Pastor Joe Greiner|Apr 10, 2023

    “Come and See!” Those are the words that greet the women who first discovered the empty tomb. They come Sunday morning with spices, but without a plan to move the stone. As they wonder about what they’re going to do about the stone, they are greeted by not only the stone moved, but an angelic visitor. “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here, for he has risen, as he said. Come, see the place where he lay.” Matthew 28:5b-6 “Come and see!” The angel challenges the women to test his words. If the massiv...

We guarantee this by performing daily quality control on the tests we perform and taking part in regulated proficiency testing programs that have strict testing guidelines and requirements. We are a CLIA certified laboratory and are inspected by the state of North Dakota every other year. We cur...

  • Archival Anecdotes: Share the History

    Rachel Brazil|Apr 10, 2023

    I am counting the days until the snow piles outside the museum melt and allow access to any of the buildings, and the artifacts within. Don't get me wrong, I love the photographs and stories I've been working with all winter, but I get especially excited to document and display artifacts. All the clues can come together to provide us with incredible insight. Last spring I had a particularly delightful time extracting wedding dresses and suits from the various closets. It's easy to understand...

    Jim Miller|Apr 10, 2023

    Dear Savvy Senior, What are the new rules on required minimum distributions from IRAs and 401(k)s? I will turn 72 this year and want to be clear on what I’m required to do.
