"These are tough times," said Marilyn Hagerty, 91, one of the eight notable North Dakota journalists featured in the documentary "Inside Stories" that premiered Friday night. A crowd gathered on Broadway outside the theater, eager to see family and friends on the big screen, compared to a byline.

Amenities include large jet bathtubs, massages, full-size beds, nice linens and robes. What's more, the birth center is on the 10th floor, the top of the new $494 million medical center in south Fargo.

FARGO — City commissioners once again reviewed a report Monday, May 8, on the cost of refugee resettlement here, and once there was no comprehensive data.
