BISMARCK—North Dakota's rank of No. 1 on lists for binge drinking shouldn't be a source of pride, according to the state's first lady on Tuesday. "The culture of drinking is worn like a badge of honor in our state rather than a cause for alarm," first lady Kathryn Helgaas Burgum told a crowd of about 1,000 people gathered at Recovery Reinvented. The event rolled out as her platform derived from her experience of 15 years in recovery from drinking.
