Imagine for a moment that you’re Earle Sarles, adjutant general of the North Dakota National Guard, on July 17, 1934. The governor, William “Wild Bill” Langer, had declared martial law and was using the National Guard to, in effect, rule North Dakota by force. Langer barricaded himself in the governor’s mansion after the state’s supreme court upheld a decision that would remove him from office. He simply refused to leave office.
There are only three seniors graduating this year from Fairmount High School and they’re all boys. They try to have a good time with it, says their advisor, Eric Evenson. He says they’re a bit on the eccentric side. For their senior flower, for instance, they picked … a pine cone? Yep. A pine cone. “They’re best friends and mortal enemies at the same time,” Evenson jokes. And they have a big problem. Or maybe it’s a small problem? “Small” as in, their class is so small they don’t have anyone to be homecoming queen.
It looks like lots of us are getting tickets to the cosmic dance. On Monday, Aug. 21, a total solar eclipse will hold millions of Americans in its eerie grasp as it makes its way from sea to shining-but-for-a-moment sea. It’s an opportunity that hasn’t come our way since 1979, the last time a total solar eclipse was visible from the continental U.S. Unlike this year’s eclipse, where the path of totality will cross the heart of the country like a bandolier, the upper Midwest then had a hard-to-get front-row seat.

It was Friday, April 28, last year when the Philadelphia Eagles picked Bismarck kid Carson Wentz second overall in the NFL draft. The upcoming anniversary of Wentz' landing in Philly hasn't gone unnoticed by the team. In fact, it's being celebrated. On Thursday, April 20, the Eagles marked their first year with the former NDSU star (plus a few months of the buildup to that point) with a replay of all the key Wentz moments, from his championship with the Bison in January to the team's two wins to cap the 2016-2017 season.
On Tuesday, March 28, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a bill that repeals rules regulating the usage of your data by the companies that provide your internet (Midco, CableOne, etc.). The U.S. Senate voted to repeal these rules last week, and President Donald Trump has signalled that he will sign the bill. What are the rules?
Wal-Mart Stores Inc. said it would create about 10,000 jobs in the United States this year, adding to its near 1.5 million workforce in the country, by opening or remodeling stores and investing in its e-commerce business. The number of jobs being created is consistent with previous years, said Lorenzo Lopez, a spokesman for Wal-Mart, the largest U.S. retailer and private employer. Several U.S. companies, particularly automakers, have announced plans to create jobs in the United States since the election victory of Donald Trump.
