Sep. 2—GRAND FORKS — Former Lt. Gov. Richard Larsen was very "level-headed," North Dakota Supreme Court Justice Gerald VandeWalle said this week. "I think he had a tremendous impact," VandeWalle said. "I wish his stability was present today in many of our political situations. I came to appreciate his goodwill and his stability. He was able to approach problems without castigating the other side, whichever side he was on." Larsen, a Republican who also represented Grand Forks in the state Legislature, died Wednesday at the age of 86.
