GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) â€” Going into Monday night's game against the Minnesota Vikings, the feeling is becoming familiar for the Green Bay Packers: Another week, another win, another uneasy feeling about the state of the defense.
The reigning Super Bowl champions are the NFL's only undefeated team at 8-0 and have won a franchise-record 14 straight games going back to last season, including playoffs. It has been so long since the Packers actually lost a game that defensive players now seem to be stewing about substandard performances in victories the same way they might after a loss.
BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) â€” North Dakota's Senate unanimously approved a $639 million disaster relief measure Thursday that includes money for low-interest home loans, road construction and repairs to public works.
Final approval was expected Friday in the House as North Dakota lawmakers prepared to finish their week-long special session on Veterans' Day.
FARGO, N.D. (AP) â€” Four North Dakota high school football champions are being crowned at the Fargodome on Friday.
Class AAA is an all-Bismarck battle, with Bismarck High taking on Bismarck Century. In Class AA, two-time defending champion Fargo Shanley tries for a three-peat against undefeated Grafton.
In Class A, Linton-Hazelton-Moffit-Braddock squares off against Stanley-Powers Lake, and in 9-man North Star goes up against Napoleon-Gackle-Streeter.
North Dakota law enforcement agencies throughout the state will conduct increased seatbelt enforcement during a "Click It or Ticket" campaign running Friday, Nov. 11, through Saturday, Nov. 19.
"North Dakota has some startling statistics related to unbelted motor vehicle fatalities," said NDDOT Safety Division Director Mark Nelson in a news release. "Historically, about three out of four people killed in motor vehicle crashes are not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash."
The Barnes County Water Resource District Board meets Monday, Nov. 14 at 9 a.m. in the Barnes County Highway Department Conference Room.
