Coronavirus needs to know

The latest coronavirus news from North Dakota: Money for Suicide Prevention, Airport Aid, and More.

Tribal suicide prevention

Spirit Lake Tribe is one of 26 nationwide organizations receiving a federal grant from the Drug Abuse and Mental Health Authority to help prevent suicides during the coronavirus pandemic.

The North Dakota tribe gets close to $ 800,000. It is the only facility in the state to receive a grant through the Emergency Response for Suicide Prevention Grants program.

“Americans across our country continue to struggle with COVID-related increases in depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, isolation, job and housing losses, and other stressors,” said Miriam E. Delphin-Rittmon, assistant secretary of the US health service and social services for mental health and substance use. “These grants support the establishment of contact with people at risk of suicide and victims of domestic violence.”

Funding comes from Congress-approved pandemic aid.

Airport assistance

According to U.S. Senator Kevin Cramer, RN.D., two western North Dakota airports are getting more federal aid to help them through the coronavirus pandemic.

The money was approved by Congress last year and distributed by the Federal Ministry of Transport.

Dakota Johnson compares her night fashion to a disco ball | Leisure

Dakota Johnson dresses like a “disco ball” at night.

Actress ‘Fifty Shades of Gray’ has revealed that all of her outfit choices are inspired by the mood boards she creates.

Speaking to Kate Young about the latest episode of her YouTube series ‘Hello Fashion’, she said, “I love mood boards. I use them for clothes, for emotions and for meals.

“Moodboards are like playlists for physical things.”

Regarding the differences between her ensembles from day to night, she added: “I am definitely a disco ball. I’m just a normal ball during the day and just a disco ball at night. “

Meanwhile, it was recently revealed that the ‘High Note’ star has taken her relationship with Chris Martin to a new level as the two now live together.

The Coldplay front man and 31-year-old star have made the “yellow” hitmaker’s Malibu mansion their home since he bought the property in October.

A source said in February, “Chris has always been a huge Malibu fan. He loves the beach and often goes surfing and running.”

The insider added that Dakota “seemed more like a town girl” until she met Chris, 43, and started dating the musician in 2017, claiming the star had adopted her new lifestyle.

The source added, “She seems to be enjoying it as much as Chris. They both love the outdoors and often take beach walks. They also support local restaurants.”

It was also revealed that Chris and Dakota often travel to Los Angeles for Sunday lunch with ex-wife Gwyneth Paltrow, with whom he shares children Apple, 16, and Moses, 14, and their husband Brad Falchuk.

The insider said, “It is obvious that everyone is still getting along well.”

Proposal would give cash to North Dakota coal vegetation by taxing wind energy | Govt-and-politics

The bill before the North Dakota legislature would impose a tax on wind farms equal to half the production tax credit. The tax would only apply to wind farms starting in 2021 or in future years. State tax officials estimate the move would generate $ 5 million a year in tax revenue from a new wind farm.

The money would go to a “Network Reliability and Resilience Fund” and the three-person Public Service Commission would be tasked with using the money to provide grants for qualified power plants.

North Dakota power plants run on coal, natural gas, or water. Plants would only be eligible if they met a number of criteria, including a 30 day on-site supply of fuel, as is the case with coal-fired power plants.

The bill comes from the fact that coal-fired power plants across the country are competing for competition in a boom in renewable natural gas power.

Coal Creek Station is slated to close in 2022

In North Dakota, Great River Energy announced last year that the state’s largest coal-fired power station, Coal Creek Station, would be closed.

“I think this is a wake-up call,” said Geoff Simon, executive director of the Western Dakota Energy Association, which represents counties, cities and school districts in North Dakota’s oil and coal producing regions.
