The money was raised by county Farmers Union organizations through various fund-raisers and donations to help build a new re- ... gional service center in Bismarck that will better serve 28 central and western North Dakota counties. With a goal of raising $25,000 toward the project, Farmers Union President Mark Watne said he was pleased with the effort. "It's a great : humanitarian gesture and another level of involvement in the food in chain from our farm and ranch members," he said. "They under- stand the importance of getting their product to market and into the mouths of hungry people." The Great Plains Food Bank (GPFB) is the state's only food bank. GPFB has a statewide distri- bution system that includes a net- work of more than 228 food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters and other charitable feeding programs in 117 communities. According to GPFB statistics, one in nine people in North Dakota and Clay County, Minn., sought food assistance last year- 36 per- cent were children and 1 l percent (701) 690-7145 cascy31269({( gmai I. cam CASE ELECTRIC LLC PO Box 892 Beach, ND 58621 Residential, Commercial, Agricultural, Industrial, and Oil Field -5 Golden % seniors. Because most food is do- nated and volunteers provide labor cost savings, GPFB is able to pro- vide four meals for everY charitable dollar it receives. Watne said one of the critical as- pects of the $1.1 million facility in Bismarck will be the recovery of more perishable food and increased efficiency in delivery by having greater geographic access to the state.

Realities and myths about North Dakota newspapers As a trade association for the 90 North Dakota daily and weekly newspapers, we want to address in simple language the truth about newspapers in North Dakota. Your local newspaper is here for the long run. Some pundits and so- called experts are already writing the obituary for the newspaper industry. We say: Hot so fast. Newspapers march on not only as news leaders and innovators, but as stalwart businesses in communities they serve, contributing to the well-being of Main Street and North Dakota. Newspapers remain a dominant media source in North Dakota. Newspapers in this state have an estimated readership of more than 500,000, plu~ a growing on-line audience. 9 out of 10 North Dakotans read their local newspaper. Nationwide, more than 104 million adults read a newspaper every day, except on on Sunday when readership grows to 1 t 5 million. That's more people than watch the Super Bowl (94 million), American Idol (23 million), or the evening news (65 million). The biggest reason newspapers are read is because you rely on your newspaper to know what's happening in your community. Obituaries, weddings, high school sports, city hall, babies, arrests, yard sales, church meetings, little league baseball, community events, engagements, town business, government public notices, even the ads ... the list goes on and on. Your newspaper connects you with your community. No other medium provides what newspapers provida. (Ever see obituaries on TV?) It's a myth that the Internet and other sources will provide news if North Dakota newspapers aren't here to do the job. The reality is that newspapers make a larger investment in newsgathering than any other medium. In fact, most of the news you get from other media originated with reporting done by newspapers. Sometimes broadcasters read the news directly from the newspaper! This is a time when newspapers are transforming. The industry is adapting and moving forward. We look forward to the future! We look forward to providing news, information and advertising that help connect and build the communities we serve.
