No one was injured when a train hit a tractor Monday afternoon near Minto, N.D., officials said. A blue New Holland tractor was in motion when it was struck by a southbound BNSF train, said Richie Sherlock, chief deputy of the Walsh County Sheriff's Office. A Walsh County man was driving the tractor but was not injured, he said. The train left the scene at about 3:20 p.m., although tractor cleanup is ongoing. Sherlock said the incident could have been much worse and "anytime anyone walks away from an accident, it's a good day."
DEVILS LAKE, N.D. — A prominent ranching organization in North Dakota is opposed to a military training center expansion proposed in the state budget. The $15 million Camp Grafton South expansion would add a small-arms range complex and additional training space at the Eddy County facility. Gov. Doug Burgum presented the budget Wednesday, and Legacy funds, which are earnings from an oil tax savings account, would be used to expand the Army National Guard training center south of Devils Lake.

After Daniella Lima posted the picture with her two sisters, brother-in-law and nephew at the Minnesota State Fair she mostly forgot she'd attached the #MNBaconPlease hashtag. But a few weeks ago, her Facebook photo got a new comment from a Minnesota Pork representative—Lima had won a year's supply of free bacon. "All I could think was 'did I seriously win a year's worth of free bacon?' and 'what am I going to do with that much bacon?' I was shocked," she said.
DRAYTON, N.D.—For as long as Kris Heine can remember, the historic church nestled into the rural Drayton cornfields near the Red River has been the place she calls home. She was baptized there, she married her husband there and it's where she buried both her parents.
