Nice news of the day – December 31, 2019

Did you know North Dakota saw an average annual economic growth rate of 5.8% over the last decade – the largest in the nation?

And did you know today’s news is about eSports, a special cemetery, and decades of giving?  Read on.

There’s a “cemetery” of sorts in McLean County with only two tombstones that hearken back to the early days of our state. (The News Tribune)

I’m amazed, but not surprised, at how long some of the Thanksgiving- and Christmas-related giving programs in North Dakota have been in action.  Take, for example, the Wilkin County Family Services Christmas Project, which has held an adopted family program for almost 30 years.  Or Project Joy in Rugby.
