Jack Dalrymple has ordered an emergency evacuation of the Dakota Access Pipeline protest camps on U.S. Army Corps of Engineers land, citing safety concerns due to harsh winter weather.

FARGO - The closure of Interstate 29 north of here is more than a headache for area businesses. It's costly. The route between Fargo and Grand Forks that normally is 79 miles for Valley Express truck drivers is now a 116-mile route, said owner Glenn Nelson. That's adding $60 to $80 in shipping costs for each trip, Nelson said. The detour also restricts trucks that are overweight or hauling anything that is over in dimension, Nelson said. I-29 is closed north of Fargo from Cass County Road 20 to North Dakota Highway 200 south of Hillsboro due to water over the roadway.

If you haven't gotten used to the name Minnesota State University Moorhead, you may not have to. President Edna Szymanski said she'd like to switch the name to Moorhead State University Minnesota. Szymanski has gotten permission from the university system to do some market research on a possible new name. The university changed its name in 2000 from Moorhead State University to Minnesota State University Moorhead. But nine years later, everyone still calls the campus Moorhead State, Szymanski said. "Why fight it?" she said. Putting Moorhead first will also prevent confusion with Minnesot
