Embraced by the Lakota Sioux, the turtle symbolizes the virtues of patience, loyalty, determination and steadfastness — and for the runners participating in the upcoming Maah Daah Hey Trail run on July 28, those virtues will be a prerequisite. The trail run, hosted by LAND and Save the MDH, offers something for runners of all levels from novice first-timers to the seasoned ultra-runners with races of varying lengths beginning at 3.1 to 106 miles.
DICKINSON, N.D.—In the wake of one of the deadliest school shootings in U.S. history—which claimed the lives of 26 people at the Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Conn., in 2012—the American College of Surgeons began an extensive study on how to improve survivability in similar situations moving forward.
When Senior Officer Hunter Easterling, of the Dickinson Police Department, and his partner responded to the call of an intoxicated man sleeping in the alley behind a business, he never anticipated the situation would turn deadly. As Easterling spoke with the intoxicated man, he noticed a white pickup approaching down the alley. "Sir, stay in your vehicle." Easterling ordered as the unidentified man exited the pickup truck and approached the scene.
