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.—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.

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.
BELFIELD, N.D. --= Meridian Energy Group wants to build the most sophisticated and state-of-the-art oil refinery to date in western North Dakota on the fringes of Theodore Roosevelt National Park, an aim they think they can reach thanks to key, cutting-edge technologies.
DICKINSON, N.D.—The North Dakota Department of Health received mixed comments at a public hearing Wednesday night about a proposed oil refinery that would be built on the fringes of Theodore Roosevelt National Park. The majority of public comments veered negative, with a number of residents of the Belfield area and citizens from as far away as Bismarck and Grand Forks voicing concerns about the long-term air quality impacts that the proposed refinery would have as well as the damage it could cause to the views, wildlife and overall health of the park.
DICKINSON, N.D. — As this year's farm bill continues to take shape, the question of what impact it will have on area farmers looms large. A presentation at this year's Diversity, Direction and Dollars agriculture forum in Dickinson on Jan. 4 by Bradley Lubben, Extension assistant professor and policy specialist for the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, suggested that any proposed legislation will be tasked with doing a lot with little money.
BISMARCK—North Dakota's Department of Mineral Resources believes 2018 will be a lot like 2017 when it comes to North Dakota energy. That isn't a bad thing, because 2017 ended on a high note with increased oil production toward the end of the year.
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)."
DICKINSON, N.D.—Corn and oil may sound like an unpleasant cocktail, but blending ethanol and gasoline has resulted in savings for consumers and profits for farmers, advocates say. To expand those benefits, U.S. Rep. Kevin Cramer, R-N.D., has co-sponsored legislation, H.R. 1736, that would extend waivers for ethanol-gasoline blends greater than 10 percent.
