Grace is love. But love of a special sort…which is kind to the unkind and generous to the ungrateful and undeserving.

A Jamestown man is accused of striking a man with a baseball bat last week.....

     JAMESTOWN, N.D. (AP) - A Jamestown man is accused of striking a man with a baseball bat last week. Police were called Thursday to an alley in southwest Jamestown. According to court documents, the 25-year-old suspect went after the other man with a baseball bat, striking him in the upper left thigh. The suspect told police he was "angry" and did swing the bat, but was not trying to hit the man. He also said he punched the victim in the face. NewsDakota reports the suspect is jailed on $1,000 bond. He faces a felony aggravated assault charge.


    BISMARCK, N.D. - Gov. Doug Burgum today appointed judicial referee and magistrate Pamela Nesvig of Bismarck to a newly created judgeship in the South Central Judicial District, effective September 1st. The judgeship was created by the state Legislature earlier this year to accommodate rising caseloads in the nine-county judicial district. Nesvig will be chambered in Mandan. 
    Nesvig has served as a judicial referee and magistrate in the South Central Judicial District since September 2015, presiding over juvenile court proceedings and hearings related to protection orders, adult guardianship, eviction, traffic, small claims, divorce, child support and mental health. She is a member of the Juvenile Drug Court, Guardianship Workgroup, North Dakota Indian Child Welfare Act state design team, National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges, Dual Status Youth Initiative Executive Committee, Case Flow Management Committee and Court Improvement Project Task Force. Nesvig also is an experienced prosecutor, previously serving as senior assistant state's attorney in Burleigh County for about 5.5 years and as an assistant state's attorney for four years before that. She also has worked in private practice and spent a year as a safety consultant for the North Dakota Safety Council.
    Nesvig earned her law degree in 2005 from the University of North Dakota School of Law in Grand Forks, a bachelor's degree in occupational safety and environmental health in 2001 from UND and an associate's degree in liberal arts from Bismarck State College. She is a member of the Big Muddy Bar Association and the State Bar Association of North Dakota.


    BISMARCK, N.D. - A committee tasked with selecting members of North Dakota's newly created Ethics Commission reached consensus recently on appointing the first five members to the voter-approved Commission. All five members have verbally accepted their appointment.
    The selection committee consists of Gov. Doug Burgum, Senate Majority Leader Rich Wardner, R-Dickinson, and Senate Minority Leader Joan Heckaman, D-New Rockford. During its fourth meeting last Thursday, the committee reached consensus on appointing the five members from a pool of nearly 70 applicants.
    By a 3-0 vote, the committee selected:
    David B. Anderson of Bismarck, a retired brigadier general in the North Dakota National Guard who now works as coordinator of military student services at the University of Mary in Bismarck. Anderson earned a bachelor's degree from North Dakota State University and a master's in strategic studies from the U.S. Army War College. 

    Ronald Goodman of Oakes, a former attorney and retired judge who served as a district court judge from 1994 to 2006. Goodman earned his undergraduate degree from St. John's University in Collegeville, Minn., and his master's and law degrees from the University of North Dakota. 

    E. Ward Koeser of Williston, a former teacher, military veteran and telecommunications business owner who served as Williston's mayor from 1994 to 2014. Koeser earned a bachelor's degree in mathematics from Dickinson State University.

    Cynthia Lindquist of Devils Lake, who has served as president of Cankdeska Cikana Community College in Fort Totten since 2013. Lindquist earned a bachelor's degree from UND, a master's in public administration from the University of South Dakota and a doctorate in educational leadership from UND.

    Paul Richard of Fargo, a retired executive vice president and former general counsel at Sanford Medical Center in Fargo. Richard earned bachelor's degrees in nursing and business from NDSU and his law degree from UND.
    North Dakota voters approved a constitutional amendment in November 2018 establishing an Ethics Commission "to strengthen the confidence of the people of North Dakota in their government, and to support open, ethical, and accountable government." The Commission consists of five members appointed by consensus agreement of the governor and the Senate majority and minority leaders. 
    Clarifying legislation approved in April requires the members' terms to be staggered. The selection committee determined that Goodman and Lindquist will each serve a four-year term, Anderson will serve a three-year term and Koeser and Richard will each serve a two-year term, effective Sept. 1 after taking the oath of office. 
    Goodman was designated as the Commission's convening chair to call the first meeting. 

    MINOT, ND - The Minot Police Department has been awarded $19,396 from Farm  Credit Services of North Dakota as a recipient of the Rural Community Grant Fund (RCGF). The grant funds helped purchase a dual purpose K-9 to better protect and serve the Minot community. 
    Chief Jason Olson from the Minot Police Department accepted the check from  Gordon Hanson, CEO of Farm Credit Services, at the Minot City Council meeting last Monday evening. The grant funds were used towards purchasing the K-9 along with the necessary training, handling and required equipment and supplies.
