North Dakota Nice

Nice news of the day – August 20, 2019

You know that a news-making Triceratops skull was uncovered this summer in the Badlands by a Mayville State professor – but did you know that it was one of a dozen Triceratops skulls that have been found across the state?  The most famous is named Bob and is considered the largest and most complete Triceratops ever discovered.

And did you know today’s news is about backcountry hunters, Grand Forks police, and a young sharpshooter?  Read on.


In just over a year, the North Dakota chapter of Backcountry Hunters and Anglers has grown to 450 members and held its second rendezvous – great news for an organization that skews younger (70% of the national membership is younger than 45). (Dickinson Press)

For 61 years, a member of the Ellingson family has protected and served Grand Forks. (Grand Forks Herald)

Sixteen-year-old Katie Zaun is a member of the U.S. Junior National Competitive Air Rifle Team, and she recently took 38th in the world in Suul, Germany – and she’s getting ready for another competition in Brazil in August. (Fargo Forum)
