The Grand Forks Event Center Commission recommended Wednesday that the city buy three lots south of the Alerus Center at a total cost of $3 million. The lots are: Lot 10, south of a lot already owned by the city, for about $1.4 million; Lot 7, adjacent to Alerus Center land for $485,000; and Lot 9, across from Lot 10, for about $1 million. The commission debated whether to recommend purchasing Lot 9, partly because it is separated from Lot 7 by another parcel, which the event center is not in negotiations to purchase.
Before MNsure, the state's new online health insurance marketplace, there was HealthMatch, an expensive, problem-plagued software project that foreshadowed MNsure's trouble a decade ago. "It was a complete failure," said longtime state Rep. Tom Huntley, DFL-Duluth. "We hired a company to manage it and set it up...and nothing ever happened." The HealthMatch project dragged on for five years, and consumed more than $20 million of taxpayer money to develop software that was never usable.
BISMARCK - North Dakota and 10 other states rate as the worst in the nation when it comes to adopting basic highway safety laws, a nonprofit lobbying group says. Washington, D.C.-based Advocates for Highway and Auto Safety released its 11th annual report card Tuesday grading all 50 states and the District of Columbia on whether they have adopted 15 "lifesaving" laws related to impaired and distracting driving, teen driving and protecting vehicle occupants. States received a red "dangerously behind" rating if they had adopted fewer than seven of the laws and lacked primary-enforcement seat be
One of my favorite food days of the year is coming up: Super Bowl Sunday. At the time I am writing this, the teams to play have yet to be determined, so I can't officially say who I am cheering for. My closest friends know that I don't follow football closely, but I do love finding reasons to cook for a crowd. There are not too many ways you can get men, women and children together while agreeing to watch the same TV for more than three hours.
FARGO -- North Dakotans have long valued education, and increasingly, our state is realizing the unparalleled role of higher education in creating the success of North Dakota and its residents. Even a casual observer would note that an 11-campus system of colleges and universities, in a state of our size and population, shows a longstanding tradition of accessible, affordable higher education. So in many senses, the observation is nothing new.
