MORTON COUNTY, N.D. — Authorities say they will decide next week whether to reopen Highway 1806 between Mandan and the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation. A statement issued Monday, March 6, by the Joint Information Center said that authorities will look at several factors before making a final decision next Monday.
MANDAN, N.D. -- A National Lawyers Guild group has filed a class action against Morton County Sheriff Kyle Kirchmeier, Morton County and other law enforcement agencies for bringing excessive force...
BISMARCK, N.D. -- While the Energy and Environmental Research Center continues to evaluate its options for drilling an experimental borehole to test deep rock for nuclear waste storage, a joint meeting of water districts plans to take up petitions against it.
Four communities around North Dakota are coming to grips with bad news from the North Dakota National Guard.
RUGBY, N.D. -- The Pierce County Commission shut down any opportunity to drill an exploratory borehole near Rugby that would allow researchers to probe any potential for nuclear waste disposal.
BISMARCK -- Three Affiliated Tribes chairman Mark Fox says he’ll make a statement Thursday on how the reservation will proceed with an oil tax compact between North Dakota and the tribes that evenly splits tax revenue from wells on the reservation.
A longstanding oil tax compact between the Three Affiliated Tribes and North Dakota needs updating, but the tribes appear to be in no hurry to sign on the dotted line.
Among the biggest buffalo sales of the year anywhere in the country will be staged Saturday in sweeping butte country at the confluence of the Missouri and Cannonball rivers 35 miles south of Mandan.
BISMARCK -- A final step in the adoption of health rules for the disposal of radioactive waste in North Dakota would provide oil companies a close-to-the-source disposal option, rather than hauling it to other states. A meeting of the Legislature’s Administrative Rules Committee is scheduled for 8 a.m. Monday in the Roughrider Room at the State Capitol and the health department is on the agenda starting at 10:45 a.m.
BOWMAN, N.D. -- For the first time, air space above southwestern North Dakota will be used for a large force military training exercise. If it weren’t so high up starting at 12,000 feet and going to 26,000 feet, the bombers, refueling tankers and fighter jets zipping around up there might be quite a spectacle for folks living from Bowman to Amidon to Marmarth. As it is, the best clue in the sky will be the jet contrails.
