BISMARCK—The State Board of Higher Education voted Wednesday, June 29, to delay taking action on a contract extension for North Dakota State University President Dean Bresciani until this fall.
FARGO – In what was mostly a positive performance review of North Dakota State University President Dean Bresciani, his boss called him out for cutting millions of dollars in state...
FARGO — With the scent of decay sailing past him in the wind, Paul Hanson looked over an amalgam of tires, metal pipes, wood scraps, glass bottles and other miscellaneous junk — the garbage of a past generation. Hanson, Fargo's landfill manager, stooped down to pluck a tattered Forum newspaper from the mess. The headline: "Dems rally behind LBJ-Hubert ticket." The date: March 11, 1967.
FARGO — North Dakota officials have approved a corrective action plan for a state-funded drug treatment center that abruptly discharged a group of residential patients in February, including a man found dead from an overdose the day after he left the center. The plan calls for more oversight of discharges at the Sharehouse treatment center in south Fargo. From now on, a team of center staff will have to sign off on all discharges, according to the plan.
FARGO – A hardly noticeable hump in an underground storm water culvert is expected to cause a three-month delay in finishing a flood-control project along Fourth Street South in Fargo...
FARGO — Joe Larson heard the call early. It came to him as a youth growing up in Dassel, Minn., a small town west of Minneapolis. Members of his Lutheran church, his Sunday school teachers and his confirmation pastor all encouraged him to follow the voice inside, the one calling him to be a pastor. And so when he left for college, he already had intentions of shepherding a flock. He majored in religion at Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, Minn., and went on to attend Luther Seminary in St. Paul.
FARGO — Whenever Greg Nellermoe goes to Fleet Farm, he swings by the shelf meant to hold .22-caliber ammo just to see whether any is actually there. "It's a total hit-and-miss type of thing," said the 52-year-old competitive shooter. Nellermoe often finds nothing, but when he does encounter a box of .22 shells, he doesn't take it. "I don't even buy it anymore when I see it because I know there's other people that need it," he said.
FARGO — Cory Terlecky and Ward Henderson were on a break. Their relationship had recently been on-again, off-again. But even when taking a break, the two still kept in touch, still spent time together. And Cory was still the woman Ward wanted to marry. "She was just a vibrant, bubbly gal," he said. "Whatever we wanted to do, we could just go do." On a recent Sunday afternoon, they had plans to get something to eat. Henderson waited for Terlecky's call, but he never heard from her.
FARGO – Police say they don't expect charges to be filed anytime soon against a man considered a person of interest in last week's homicide of a Fargo woman.
DILWORTH – A word to anyone who has a run-in with the Dilworth police: Your encounter may be videotaped by an officer's body camera.
