Jamestown  (CSi)  Join author Annika Caldwell, in Valley City and Jamestown  celebrating the release of her book ‘Twenty Three and Debt Free: 50 Practical Tips to Set You Financially Free.’

On Thursday’s Wayne Byers Show on CSi Cable 2 by phone from Grand Forks, Annika said that she will be at The Vault Coffee Shop in Valley City on Tuesday November 13, from 11-a.m., to 1-p.m., and at the Plantation Coffee Bar in Jamestown, on Wednesday November 14, from 9-a.m., to 11:30-a.m., selling and signing copies of her book, also available for purchase at Amazon Prime, and Barnes & Noble.

Each participant will be provided with a zero-based budgeting template, resources for paying off debt and cutting costs, and the opportunity to win two awesome prizes including the book ‘Twenty Three and Debt Free’ and a Financial Peace University lifetime membership.

**FREE CHILDCARE will be provided by Stepping Stones. If you will be using this free childcare, please send an email to annika@23anddebtfree.com with the first name and age of each of your children.

Annika explained that she and her husband had encountered enormous debt, of $97,000 and the experience led her to publish the book “Twenty Three and Debt Free: 50 Practical Tips to Set You Financially Free.”

Twenty three was her age when she started her journey to become debt free, which she did, by following a budget and plan to pay off debtors.

From making a budget that works for you to cutting costs for your family and paying off debt, this event will equip you with the tools to live life financially free.

With money touching so many points in our lives, Annika is especially passionate about educating people about budgeting, cutting costs, college planning, and avoiding consumer debt. Age and income status don’t matter here.   She said that everyone needs the tools to take control of their own finances and achieve financial freedom.


Jamestown  (CSi)  The Jamestown Salvation Army Kettle Campaign kicks off on Thursday November 15.  This year’s goal has been upped to $168,000.

Major, Tim Nauta says, last year’s goal was nearly $160,000, with the extra dollars in this year’s goal will go toward the reopening the Salvation Army’s game room, providing a safe place for school-age kids to go, in addition the increased needs in services provided to the community, all year long, which outpaces funding.

The Salvation Army strives to fight against homelessness in the area, and to make sure heating bills are paid and other necessities are provided for in homes.

Six kettle locations will be set up this year.

Major Nauta says the bell ringers will be stationed at a kettle in two hour shifts. Register to be a bell ringer by calling at 701-252-0290, or online at www.registertoring.com.


BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Gov. Doug Burgum has directed all government agencies to fly the U.S. and North Dakota flags at half-staff as a sign of respect for the victims of the shooting in Thousand Oaks, California. The order is in effect until sunset Saturday. Burgum is encouraging North Dakotans to do the same at their homes and businesses.


FARGO, N.D. (AP) — Police say an 88-year-old woman has died in a three-vehicle crash in Fargo. The collision happened Wednesday shortly before 3 p.m. on Main Avenue. Lois Koehler Fritz was the driver of one of the vehicles. She was taken to a local hospital and later pronounced dead.


BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A super weed that can devastate corn and soybean crops has now been found in five North Dakota counties, but a university expert says there is still hope for preventing a widespread infestation of Palmer amaranth in the state.

The aggressive pigweed species can grow as tall as 7 feet and produce hundreds of thousands of seeds. It’s strong enough to stop combines and resist many herbicides.

It’s native to the desert regions of the southwestern U.S. and northern Mexico, but it has slowly spread to southeastern and Midwestern states and in recent years has moved into South Dakota, Minnesota and Iowa.

It was first confirmed in soybeans in southeastern North Dakota’s McIntosh County in August, and it now has been confirmed either by extension specialists or through laboratory analysis in Benson, Dickey, Foster and Richland counties, in soybeans, livestock feed and in the wild.

The infestations have been small, with officials in most cases pulling the plants by hand, according to Tom Peters, sugar beet agronomist with the North Dakota State University Extension Service.

“We can manage these small fields of Palmer amaranth,” he said. “If we allow it to become established, I think then it’s going to change the way we grow crops in North Dakota.”

A heavy Palmer amaranth infestation can cut soybean yields by as much as 79 percent and corn yields by up to 91 percent, according to research by Purdue University. The threat from the weed is so great that NDSU Weed Science officials named it the “weed of the year” in both 2014 and 2015, even though it hadn’t yet been found in the state.

Officials determined the weeds found in the past few months had a variety of likely sources — migratory birds, farm equipment, a railroad car and livestock feed brought in from out of state. All of the plants so far have been found in eastern North Dakota, which borders states where Palmer amaranth also is present.


In sports…
BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota licensed deer hunters are readying for the opening of the state’s deer gun season on Friday.

The Bismarck Tribune reports that North Dakota allocated 55,150 deer gun licenses for the roughly 16-day-long season.

Jeb Williams is chief of the state Game and Fish Department’s Wildlife Division. Williams says the department modestly increased licenses but was conservative enough that hunters will likely have a successful season.

He says anecdotal data and field reports suggest deer reproduction was good this year around the Bismarck-Mandan area. He notes that hunting units near Fargo, Bismarck, Minot, Grand Forks, Dickinson and Williston also tend to be popular.

Williams says western North Dakota has seen positive growth and harvests of white-tailed and mule deer, while the east has experienced more challenges.


In world and national news…

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) — California State University, Northridge, says in a statement the gunman in the Thousand Oaks mass shooting was once a student. The university says 28-year-old Ian David Long last attended the university in 2016. The statement has no further details. Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean identified Long as the gunman who killed 12 people at the Borderline Bar and Grill late Wednesday. The sheriff says Long also was found dead and is believed to have killed himself.THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) — A veteran police officer who didn’t hesitate to run toward danger and a young man who eagerly awaited the birth of his first sister are among the 12 victims of a shooting at a bar in California. Ventura County sheriff’s Sgt. Ron Helus was talking to his wife when he got the call about the attack and was described as a hero after he rushed toward the gunfire. Cody Coffman was a 22-year-old who was excited to fulfill his dream of serving his country by joining the Army.


ATLANTA (AP) — Stacey Abrams’ campaign says it will continue to fight to get all outstanding votes counted in the Georgia governor’s race and won’t accept former Secretary of State Brian Kemp’s declaration of victory. At a news conference Thursday, Abrams’ campaign manager Allegra Lawrence-Hardy said that the campaign demands that the secretary of state’s office “release all the data, all the numbers, and they need to count every single vote.”


UNDATED (AP) — The Associated Press has learned that the Trump administration is replacing in-person court hearings for some migrant teens with video sessions piped into courtrooms from shelters. The administration’s goal for the unannounced pilot program is to speed up the processing of a record 13,000 detained minors, but early sessions have had technical glitches and some advocates call the video hearings a rollback of due process.


WASHINGTON (AP) — Eighty-five-year-old Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg fractured three ribs in a fall in her office at the court and has been hospitalized. The court says she fell Wednesday evening, experienced discomfort overnight and called Supreme Court police to take her to the hospital early Thursday. Ginsburg is the court’s oldest justice and has had two prior bouts with cancer. The Supreme Court on Thursday held a ceremony welcoming new Justice Brett Kavanaugh to the court.
