BISMARCK — Sanford Health has announced plans to build a standalone heart hospital in downtown Bismarck. The project is still in the early planning phase. Sanford officials did not provide a timeline for the facility's construction but expect it to be completed within the next decade.
BISMARCK — North Dakota Highway Patrol Trooper Tarek Chase is vigilant, constantly gauging the sobriety of people around him, even when he's off duty. He can't help it. It's the result of his drug recognition expert training, a rigorous, internationally utilized program that helps law enforcement to identify drivers impaired under the influence of drugs other than alcohol. Chase oversees North Dakota's drug recognition expert training program as state coordinator. North Dakota has 60 DRE law enforcement officers spread out over about 20 agencies.
