GRAND FORKS—When Lauren Hennessey and her parents left their Boston home at 4:30 a.m. Wednesday and boarded a plane for Grand Forks, her dream of one day playing Division I college hockey was as alive as ever. A native of Lynnfield, Mass., Hennessey lived, breathed and ate hockey since she was old enough to know how to lace up her skates. "I have played goalie since I was six-years-old with the dream of one day playing Division I," Hennessey said.
It's time to embrace debate! So gather your friends, co-workers or anyone near you and indulge, discuss and decipher our list of the top restaurants that are not in North Dakota (yet, we hope).

It was the shot heard around the state Saturday, March 18, at the Class B State Championship in Minot. Kyle Henningsgard, as time faded to zero on the game clock, sunk a three pointer to win the North Dakota Class B Boys State Basketball Tournament for the Hillsboro-Central Valley Burros over defending champion Four Winds-Minnewaukan.

Perhaps getting even more attention than the actual game-winning shot was Hillsboro-native and former Burro basketball player Thomas Meyer.
NFL teams announced performanced-based pay results from the 2016 season Wednesday, and a former Bison standout offensive lineman was at the top of the list for the Colts. Colts offensive lineman Joe Haeg earned $276,000 in performance-based pay in his rookie season with Indianapolis. Performance-based pay is supplemental pay based on total snaps and weighted towards players with lower salaries, which can be an added incentive for young players taken in mid-to-late rounds of the NFL draft or undrafted college free agents.
As a local journalist, walking through the doors of your employer is typically the only certainty you're guaranteed of on any given day. Once you walk through those doors, you never know what lies ahead. This was especially the case for FOX 26-TV Houston reporter John Donnelly on Wednesday, March 1. In a "man on the street" interview, Peterson can be heard responding to a question that was previously asked by Donnelly. Donnelly, in typical reporter fashion, then wraps up the interview saying, "your name?" "Adrian Peterson," Peterson replied.
