FARGO—The American Lung Association has one thing they want people at a higher risk of lung cancer to know: They can get screened with a low-dose CT scan that could diagnose any cancer earlier and provide a better chance of surviving.

SIOUX FALLS, S.D.—Eunice Richmond was working out in the yard the other day enjoying a gorgeous May day. She's also remodeling her kitchen. It's something she thought she might never be doing almost two years ago when she was diagnosed with advanced lung cancer and faced the possibility of only six months to live. However, thanks to a new treatment that a regional Sanford Health research team helped develop and study, the 67-year-old Richmond and others are realizing that a longer life than they ever expected may lie ahead.
SPENCER — It was a Saturday night—about 8:30 p.m—just after Memorial Day. Chuck Feiner said he was out fishing on the Missouri River, but his wife was home. Other residents were in nearby Salem or Mitchell enjoying the comfortable late spring night at various events or shopping. However, others like Betty Schoon and Rosella Loon were simply relaxing or visiting in homes as the summer season was just around the corner. Then all hell broke loose.
SPENCER—The late South Dakota Gov. Bill Janklow is given significant credit for helping Spencer through its worst days in the spring of 1998. "The town I don't think would be here except for him," said Chuck Feiner, who operates an insurance agency out of the town's bank. The cantankerous governor, known for telling it like it is and being outspoken, was up for it when he took over the cleanup and the start of the road to recovery after six people died and most of the town was destroyed by the tornado that some said might have had winds as high as 264 mph.

KEYSTONE, S.D. — One of the region's top tourist attractions—the Mount Rushmore National Memorial in the Black Hills of South Dakota --- is getting a $5 to $7 million facelift. Actually, it's won't be a facelift on the four faces of the presidents carved into the granite mountain at the Black Hills attraction. Rather, the focus will be upgrading the visitor's center and replacing pavers that are cracking and dissolving on the main pathway to the landmark, the Avenue of Flags, that displays flags from all 50 states.
