The NFL has seen their television viewing audience decrease dramatically in the past few years. How about putting in a new rule to even things up?
SCENARIO: The offense is within the “Red Zone” or inside the 20-yard line and it is 4th and 9 for a first down at ...
Not at this time, that time, or any other time. I’d like to go back to Tokyo to visit old haunts. Think the city will pay for that? Not hardly. $10,000 will go a long way to fixing some roads that are in serious need of repair.

North Dakota is under attack! By who? You guessed it. By those the people elect to represent them in state government of course.

I credit the Minot Area Development Corporation, of which I am a former board member and chair, for its recent release regarding the largest local employers. Minot Air Force Base, to nobody’s surprise, is the largest local employer. Trinity Health is number two. ...
