LINTON, N.D. — Linton High School in south-central North Dakota is facing scrutiny from a civil rights organization for letting a Christian motivational speaking group hold events there Wednesday, Jan 10. The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) sent a letter to Paul Keeney, superintendent of Linton Public Schools, saying such events pose "special constitutional concerns vis-a-vis governmental promotion of religion."
FARGO — Windblown snow made it so hard for drivers to see on 19th Avenue North that city officials on Thursday, Jan. 11, closed part of the road, which is vulnerable to wind and snowdrifts. The closure between Dakota Drive and 18th Street lasted from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. It was a stark reminder of a blizzard in February 1984 that killed 23 people in North Dakota and Minnesota, four of whom died on that particular stretch of road.
