Tuesday, July 9, 2019 – Should the historic Bismarck-Mandan rail bridge be saved? A group called Friends of the Rail Bridge thinks so. Here to explain the interest in the bridge are Mark Zimmerman and Emily Sakariassen. ~~~ Hemp won’t get you high like it’s cousin marijuana, but that doesn’t mean farmers aren’t facing problems. Harvest Public Media reports. ~~~ In this week’s Trahant Reports, Mark Trahant talks about the conditions of asylum seekers being held at the southern border. ~~~  In case you missed seeing Mark Twain the last time he was in North Dakota (in July of 1895) you can catch him next Sunday when George Frein portays the author in a Chautaqua-style presentation at the Prairie Village Museum in Rugby. We get a preview as the former UND professor joins us to discuss his interest in Twain.
