  • Students from Fort Totten had an adventure recently that gave them an up close and personal look at our state government in action.
    The Social Studies department at Four Winds High School brought a number of their alternative high school students to the state capital in Bismarck last week.
    They were hosted by Sen. Joan Heckaman, District 18, who arranged for a tour of Capital and for the students to be seated on the floor of the Senate, each with a senator, for a Senate vote.
    Heckaman is a part time math instructor at Four Winds when she’s not serving as senator, therefore she was glad to have her students experience state government first hand.
    A few of the visiting students were thrilled when the senator they were paired with allowed them to do the actual voting on a bill about the UND Medical Center.
