If timing is among the keys to winning football games, North Dakota State University Bison coach Craig Bohl missed a beat last weekend. His announcement – first leaked and then confirmed – that he would leave NDSU for the head coaching job at the University of Wyoming was a shocker for Bison fans and the Fargo community.
Sen. John Hoeven, R-N.D., has an important part to play in making sure the $100 million in new Alzheimer’s research funding remains in the 2014 Fiscal Year budget.
Recently, Joel Heitkamp had Sen. Dwight Cook , R-Mandan, on his KFGO radio show. When asked for comment on Kathleen Sebelius’ responsibility for the healthcare.gov website, Sen. Cook felt it appropriate to say on live radio:

In the 1930s, President Roosevelt tried to pack the U.S. Supreme Court with “yes men” judges. Fortunately he failed, and it has not been tried since – until now, by President Obama and Democratic Senate leader Harry Reid.
