FARGO -- A Cass County judge is ordering juvenile court officials to share minority kids' court records with workers at Lutheran Social Services in a move that aims to get more minority children to show up for court dates and meet other legal requirements. The order comes at the same time as a public backlash against LSS, which was the subject of an online petition against the nonprofit's plan to bring more than 100 new refugees into the Fargo community by October and a total of more than 400 by the end of the year.

FARGO—Cass County prosecutors have charged a Fargo man with the attempted murder of his father in a stabbing Wednesday near two south Fargo motels.

DEVILS LAKE, N.D.—A program in Devils Lake that began as an informal way to curb underage drinking parties has expanded into a community-wide hotline for reporting a wide variety of alcohol issues, including overserving in bars. The hotline was expanded six weeks ago to serve the general public as part of a state grant that aims to educate residents about alcohol abuse in North Dakota, which has some of the highest rates of binge drinking in the U.S. Officials at the Lake Region Health District Unit, which works with the Devils Lake Police Department to administer the program, wanted
FARGO—Sokphaul Tann and his wife endured about three hours of hell Sunday night, after Tann saw someone steal the family's van with his 3-year-old son still inside it.
