Face of Devils Lake flooding leaving government

FILE - In this Aug. 24, 2010, file photo Joe Belford, a lifelong Devils Lake resident and county commissioner, watches water flow from an outlet on the west end of Devils Lake. Belford, 74, who served nearly a quarter century on the Ramsey County Commission and became the face of the prolonged Devils Lake flood disaster, is leaving government, but not the fight to bring normalcy to a region that has suffered through two decades of water woes. Belford, who recently lost a re-election bid, said he will continue working with the State Water Commission on Devils Lake issues. (AP Photo/Dave Kolpack, File)
