MOORHEAD, MN--After nearly 46 years of public service, Brian Berg says it's time to call it quits. The former North Dakota Highway Patrol Supt., US Marshal, Becker County Administrator and current Clay County administrator will retire this summer. Berg says he's collected plenty of memories over the years. He was a state patrol captain during the 1983 shootout with vigilante tax protester Gordon Kahl. As US Marshal, Berg says his most unusual assignment was making sure his staff provided 24-hour security for a Fargo abortion clinic. At the time, abortion clinics across the country were targeted by violent protests. Berg was Administrator for Becker County until 2010 and orchestrated the courthouse expansion during his tenure. The 67-year old Berg has told the Clay County Commission that he intends to step down in July or Aug.
