EXCHANGE-STUDENT’S MENTAL HEALTH
BISMARCK, N.D. _ Rachel Roehrich created a website to help students navigate life in high school and connect them to mental health and addiction resources. The website was an idea generated by Roehrich, a sophomore at Century High School, and a small group of classmates in a leadership class as a one-stop, user-friendly site for students. The site, called CHS Corner, recently launched. It includes tips for students on topics such as effectively managing stress, an information section with articles for students and a school and community resources page.

EXCHANGE-LAKE SAKAKAWEA SPAWNING
PARSHALL, N.D. _ It happens every spring but, my oh my, it’s definitely not always like this. North Dakota Game and Fish biologists have been conducting their annual spring walleye spawning operations on Lake Sakakawea in recent days and the results have been extremely good, maybe the best ever in the history of the state’s biggest body of water. Good egg quality is important. Dave Fryda, NDG&F Missouri River System fisheries supervisor, credits low water temperatures on Lake Sakakawea, still in the mid-40′s recently, as a main reason for good egg quality.
