Crews from North Star Caviar weigh and measure female paddlefish in Williston, North DakotaBy Ernest Scheyder WILLISTON, N.D. (Reuters) - North Dakota is known globally not just for prolific oil production, but also, it turns out, for caviar. As paddlefish, one of North America's largest freshwater fish, make their way north to spawn, their eggs, or roe, are processed at the water's edge to make more than 2,000 pounds of caviar prized by clients from Tokyo to Toronto to New York. "Everyone will tell you that Russian sturgeon caviar is the best, and since the quality of our caviar is so close, we feel like we're second," said June Sheaks, executive director of North Star Caviar, the nonprofit company behind the caviar operation. Before North Star was formed about 25 years ago, roe from female paddlefish was discarded by North Dakota fishermen.

Oregon governor signs gun background check bill

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 05/12/2015 - 15:20
(Reuters) - Oregon Governor Kate Brown on Monday signed into law a bill that will require background checks on nearly all gun buyers in the state. The Oregon Firearms Safety Act expands background check requirements, already in place at stores and gun shows in the state, to include person-to-person and online gun sales. Supporters say that tighter background checks are key to preventing violence by people already prohibited from owning guns, such as those with domestic violence or felony convictions. Oregon is now that eighth state to require universal background checks, according to the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, including six that have taken action since the 2012 killings at the Sandy Hook Elementary School.
