The Southeast Region of the North Dakota Highway Patrol is keeping up with troopers in the oil patch when comparing overloaded truck citations issued this year compared to last year.
The agency said it had handed out more overload fees from January, 2012, through September than it had in all of 2011. While many of those citations were written in the bustling Bakken Oil Field, the rest of the state as seen some âheavy trafficâ as well.
Earl Kramer got quite the birthday gift this year when he traveled to Canada to pick up a mounted bear that he shot on his birthday in June last year.
After waiting an entire year to get the rare cinnamon-colored black bear in a full-body mount, Kramer finally got to see his prize on his birthday this year.
The bear, which stands up with one paw in the air and on top of a tree trunk stand, is displayed in a picture window in Kramerâs house in Rogers.
The National Rifle Association recently endorsed both Republican Dwight Kiefert for the North Dakota District 24 House of Representatives and Democratic North Dakota U.S. House Candidate Pam Gulleson.

Kiefert is a member of the NRA and is an avid hunter. He enjoys being involved with teaching youth gun safety.
