Here are the North Dakota AP Member Exchange Features for Jan. 26-28:
MINOT, N.D. _ In an effort to keep coyote numbers in check, the North Dakota Department of Agriculture and the North Dakota Game and Fish Department have teamed up to produce the Coyote Catalog. The catalog connects landowners who want coyotes removed from their land with hunters and trappers willing to help out. Once a landowner signs up for the Coyote Catalog through the Agriculture Department, their information is shared with coyote hunters and trappers who sign up for the Coyote Catalog on the state’s Game and Fish website.

BISMARCK, N.D. _ Montessori-based education has helped a struggling North Dakota school improve. The principal of Christ the King Montessori School in Mandan said the school was “dying off” three years ago. Class sizes were small, and school officials knew they needed to make a change. That change presented itself in Montessori-based education, according to principal Derrick Nagel, noting that the school is seeing a spike in student enrollment and has started a waiting list that contains more than 100 names.
