DEVILS LAKE, N.D. (AP) - One of the leaders in the battle

against Devils Lake flooding is resigning his official county

position, though he still plans to be involved in the flood fight.

Ramsey County Emergency Manager Tim Heisler will

step down at the end of February. He tells KZZY radio that he's

enjoyed the challenges of the job he's held for 21 years but is

looking forward to a semi-retirement after being a county employee

for more than three decades.

Heisler says he'll remain involved in the flood battle by

educating people around the state and in Washington, D.C., about

the situation.

Heisler also plans to continue serving as a Devils Lake city

commissioner and says he's exploring a potential part-time job.
