“I like the fact that I can see all kinds of patients here. I have worked with orthopedic and pediatric patients along with residents in the Care Center and on acute,” Olson said.

Olson will complete her rotation June 27 and hopes to remain in the Bismarck area.

Anhydrous leaks investigated

The Pierce County Sheriff’s Department and Rugby Police are investigating what appears to be intentional leaking of anhydrous tanks at Envision along US 2.

Both departments have increased patrols in the area.

“They don’t realize how deadly this stuff is,” Sheriff Matt Lunde said. “We do not want to see somebody die over this.”

Valves have been cracked, according to Lunde.

Authorities are seeking any information and callers may remain anonymous.
