There were fewer participants, animals and exhibits than past years, but the 2020 edition of Divide County 4-H Achievement Days was successful, according to NDSU Extension staff Travis Binde, Kim Hermanson and Michelle Pulvermacher. “We pulled it off,” Pulvermacher said, following a couple months’ worth of long days and hard work.

Pandemic impact shows in sales

North Dakota’s taxable sales and purchases showed a 3 percent increase statewide during the first quarter of 2020, but not in the northwest corner of the state.

Forgetfulness, memories span the generations

Passing Dreams

Memory is strange. Often I’ll read something in the paper that invokes one of those “ah ha” moments, and when I try to tell about it a week later I have no clue what it was about. I’ll remember that I was planning to put a favorite item on the grocery list, but then forget to do it. When I […]
