CQ Engraving and Gifts occupies a tidy niche on the eastern side of Dickinson—a hobby turned shop that provides elegant engravings and handmade handicrafts, gifts ideal for the coming holiday season. "We have metal, wood, glass ... if you bring in something like rings, watches, we have knives we can engrave on, money clips ... animal tags, we have those," Charline Quillian, owner of CQ Engraving, which is located at 1462 I-94 Business Loop E Suite 2 in Dickinson. "At the house I have a system we can do rock carving."
I don't think I'm alone in considering this election cycle to be maybe a bit more odious than most. I suppose they're all this way, a mad mad mad mad maelstrom of vitriol, rhetoric—and mud. Now that the noise has at last, at long last come to cease, I think we must reflect upon our behavior during this bloody affair, lest we cease to care of the state of our souls.
As was previously reported by the Dickinson Press, sheriff candidate, Sgt. Corey Lee, had improperly used officer's discretion to let a man with an active warrant go free based upon the man's word that the payment he owed Stark County would be paid the following morning. In that story, it was reported that no active warrant for the suspect could be found. After the story ran, however, it was brought to our attention that the warrant was still active but under a different, state-wide database.
Rep. Mike Lefor shared billing with Congressman Kevin Cramer at a political forum hosted at Dickinson State University on Monday, and spoke on a variety of issues as well, though a good chunk of the event saw him sparring on the weedy topic of recreational marijuana legalization. The event opened with Cramer extolling the virtues of North Dakota's Legislature, particularly in that representatives are closer to their constituents than in other, more populous states.
Screams echo down the corridors of the school—and then a punctuation of gunshots silences everything. For a moment, time stands still—and then a burst of noise, the front doors pushed open and a squad of law enforcement advances smoothly through the entranceway.
Dickinson-area artist Linda Renaud possesses a truly unique style of art. Her portraits of wildlife burst with a lush and vibrant sense of color, capturing the mood and personality of their subjects while also conveying light and dark, bringing the beauty of nature to life.
Trey Fishbach is a sophomore at Dickinson State University; a member of the university's Ag Club, a member of the College Republicans, a member of the wrestling team and the Collegiate Farm Bureau. Currently he is working toward a degree in soil agronomy. Originally from South Dakota, Fishbach was recruited to DSU's wrestling team—his high school coach had wrestled for the Blue Hawks. "The one club I really have a passion for is Farm Bureau, actually," Fishbach said. "Basically advocating for legislative action for farmers."
Terry Kovacevich was inducted into the North Dakota Petroleum Council Hall of Fame on Sept. 25, but his impact to the Dickinson community—and surrounding communities—extends well beyond the oil patch.
Manufacturing has had a home in Dickinson since before the first oil wells sprang up on the horizon, and that community connection is at its clearest during the annual Manufacturing Day, which in its fourth year is drawing in bigger crowds, more students and showcasing the gleaming promise that is modern manufacturing.
Susan Reinhiller hasn't been teaching at Dickinson High School very long, but she's already hard at work bringing her passion for history to her students—and that passion will be aided thanks to a scholarship she received to participate in an online class "Legacies of World War I." As the calendar rolls towards the 100th anniversary of the end of the Great War, it's important to teach the importance of a conflict so often overshadowed by the mushroom clouds of its progeny.
