North Dakota's longest-serving state's attorney currently in office retires - The Dickinson Press

Monday, January 09, 2017

Fabian Noack, who served multiple terms from 1959 to 2002 for Foster County, according to his obituary. Noack died Dec. 12, 2014, at age 84.Larson, who grew up in Cloquet, Minn., a city of about 12,000 residents 20 miles west of Duluth, graduated in 1975 from UND before moving to Hillsboro, N.D., and joining the Vinje and Engelman law firm in Mayville, N.D. It wasn't long before he ran for the Traill County state's attorney post in 1978.He won the election against incumbent Dewel Viker Jr. of Hillsboro, according to a report in the Hillsboro Banner. He then took office in January 1979 and was re-elected nine times, spending almost his entire career prosecuting cases for Traill County while serving as a legal representative for the County Commission.The post is part time, meaning Larson continued with his private practice, as well as doing taxes for clients.He said his time as a prosecutor has been spent seeking justice for victims, though he noted justice is not always black and white. He also said the justice system is about dealing with people and treating them with respect."One of the keys to overall justice is treating people well so they are not antagonized by the criminal system," he said.He said Hillsboro was a great place to raise his family of two daughters with his wife, Kathy. He noted that the small-town atmosphere means you'll likely hear about issues impacting your children."In my case, the extreme happened because my girls didn't date in high school because (I) scared the crap out of all of their boyfriends," he joked.But all joking aside, he said a small...

Former Fond du Lac chairman Pete Defoe dies - Pine Journal

He had compassion for his people. He had compassion for this reservation, for our home.”Dupuis said Defoe was also instrumental in the creation of Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College in Cloquet — Defoe was on the task force which developed plans for the unique tribal-state educational institution in the 1980s — as well as a major expansion of the band’s successful Black Bear Casino Resort operations.“I don't think anyone can follow in his footsteps,” Dupuis added.Defoe’s daughters, Michelle DeBolt and Stephanie Hammitt, said their father loved his family and the Fond du Lac reservation and its people.“I think how he treated the rez — he tried to do the best he could — was what he always did for his family,” said Michelle. “He was always supporting us; he was always there to listen to us. I think we were fortunate to have parents like ours. They were together 42 years. They showed us how to work through tough times and how to just care for each other.”Her sister agreed, noting that their dad tried to attend every school conference and event, even coming home from business trips to be there.Defoe was a U.S. Navy veteran. He eventually settled in Superior, where he worked as an electrician before moving to Cloquet in 1970. He first ran for the secretary-treasurer position in 1986; the post previously had been filled by his father, Peter DuFault.When he took office as chairman in 2004, Defoe said his priorities included directing a planned $25 million expansion of Black Bear Casino and its adjoining hotel that was approved by the previous reservation board. While Defoe was chairman, the band opted to pursue a larger expansion plan — including a 12-story addition to the hotel, an 1,800-seat convention center and a larger casino — at a price tag of more than $100 million.Hammitt said her dad led by example and liked to help people any way he could.“He would think things through and consider everything before making a decision,” she said.“He was straightforward with you, and said what he thought, but in a manner that wasn’t offensive,” her sister added.Defoe received an honorary doctorate of laws degree from Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College during its commencement ceremony in May — held on Defoe’s birthday. His daughters accepted on his behalf because he was in the hospital at the time.DeBolt said her father had been sick since December when he had a heart attack and a stroke. After spending about three months in the hospital he came...
