Addiction has a tremendous impact upon the life of a person and impedes upon their normal daily activities. The addiction may present a significant threat to a person’s physical and emotional health. Like many illnesses, addiction also impacts those who are somehow connected to the person. Family members and friends are quickly identified as someone who may be affected by a person’s addiction. The illness of addiction goes well beyond these close connections.

As schedules begin to fill with the annual back-to-school bustle, it’s time again to think about school supplies, sports, and transportation! This month, North Dakota Department of Transportation, draws attention to the dangers teen drivers face every day on roadways nationwide. Motor vehicle crashes are the number one killer of teens in the U.S and last year, one teen driver crash occurred every three hours in North Dakota. These same teen drivers (those 14 - 19 years old) represent only 5 percent of all licensed drivers in North Dakota, but are involved in 18 percent of all crashes.

A question was raised relating to the use and possession of weapons within West Fargo. Under West Fargo Ordinance 12-0306 it is unlawful for any person to discharge a firearm or dangerous weapon within the city limits of West Fargo. The ordinance does not apply to the lawful discharge of firearms or dangerous weapons by a law enforcement officer; a person at an indoor or outdoor target range licensed or permitted by conditional use by the City Commission; an indoor target competition, which competition has been approved by the Police Department; or the lawful discharge by persons in defense of a person or property.

On November 8th voters in North Dakota will be asked to consider an initiated measure, frequently referred to as Marsy’s Law, to add a new section of Article 1 of the North Dakota Constitution. As stated in the petition title the measure will: provide a number of rights for victims of crimes in this state in a manner no less vigorous than protections afforded to criminal defendants, including the rights of crime victims to be treated with respect, to be free from harassment, and to be protected from the accused. The measure would provide for the safety of crime victims in bail and release decisions and in protecting information that might be used to harass or locate crime victims. Crime victims would have the right to be present at certain court and related proceedings and to be heard concerning such matters as release, plea or sentencing of the accused, and parole and pardon matters and to be notified of any release or escape of the accused. Crime victims would have the right to provide information about the impact of the offender’s conduct and to receive relevant reports or records including pre-sentence reports. The measure would also require prompt return of victims’ property when no longer needed and to timely restitution.

Motorcycle season is short in North Dakota. From April 1 to October 31, riding season lasts only 214 days. Last year there were 282 motorcycle crashes in our state. That equates to more than one motorcycle crash every day of riding season in 2015. With more motorcycles than ever on our roads and streets, it’s time for a reminder to watch out for motorcycles and help everyone—no matter how many wheels are under them—get home safely.
