"Now it's a time for memory"

When protestors and the news media began flooding the tiny town of Fort Yates, North Dakota in the spring of 2016, no one knew that the efforts to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline would be so far-reaching. Mark Holman is the director of the Sitting Bull College Library, and even a year later, he doesn't have a complete grasp on what happened in his small community. What he does know, however, is that it's his job to assemble the bits and pieces and help make sense of it.

Buzzy

Buzzy was left behind in a foreclosed house and brought to the shelter.  He is a short stocky, male mixed breed, guessed to be about 3-4 yrs. He gets along with older children, adults, and cats. He does well with other dogs (outside playing and greeting,) but not living with them. He definitely wants to be boss.

The ice ain't nice

Apostle Island National Lakeshore

There are a lot of things that are bad even though you can't tell by looking at them.

People, for example.  Novels. And ice. 

For example, the ice surrounding the mainland ice caves at the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore is abysmal.

In fact, it's so  irredeemably bad the only hope for opening the ice caves this year (they last opened in 2015)  is if a northeasterly wind blows it all out "to sea"?  "to lake"?  and new ice can form.

Bad ice is dangerous ice.
