MANDAN, N.D. (AP) – Two men received jail time yesterday for
their roles in a fatal Mandan shooting. Judge Bruce Haskell says he
hopes the sentences send a message to people in the community who
he says are increasingly using guns to resolve disputes. One man
was sentenced to five years in prison, while the other was
sentenced to six months.
     
BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) – North Dakota transportation officials say
load restrictions are in place beginning today as the spring thaw
sets in. The weight restrictions guard against damage to roads.
They’ll be lifted when roadbeds have stabilized enough to handle
normal traffic.
     
BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) – Supporters of the new chancellor of North
Dakota’s university system say his diverse background is one of the
big reasons they wanted to hire him. Ham Shirvani
is an architect by training who also holds a master’s degree from
Harvard and a doctorate from Princeton. He’s a devout Catholic who
grew up in London after his family moved from Iran to escape
religious persecution.
     
SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) – The warm late-winter weather will
continue today after breaking dozens of records across the Dakotas
yesterday. In Grand Forks, the mercury climbed to 59 degrees
yesterday.
