CARRINGTON, N.D. (AP) _ A Carrington woman was so worried about the state's future 10 years ago that she took part in a roundtable called ``Saving North Dakota.''
But she isn't worried anymore.
Robin Anderson says at the decade anniversary of the brainstorming event that the future looks brighter than she ever imagined. Now a 40-year-old, Anderson said that she wouldn't mind her three children staying in the area. She would have when she was 30.
The roundtable's participants were all young adults offering a variety of prescriptions to improve the state's technology, economy and job opportunities.
Today, the state has the nation's lowest unemployment rate and a fiber broadband network covering 10,000 square miles.
