JAMESTOWN, N.D. — Two suspects were arrested on multiple violations after they fled from police officers in Jamestown on Friday night, Feb. 3. At about 9:54 p.m., the vehicle was spotted leaving Casey's General Store North. The red Jeep did not stop for police officers and continued through residential areas of northeast Jamestown before heading northbound out of city limits toward the Jamestown Marina on the east side of the Jamestown Reservoir. The driver, Cody Deese, had a probation hold and suspended driver's license.

FARGO — Back in 1922, when Minnie D. Craig and Nellie Dougherty were the first women elected to the North Dakota House of Representatives, they were part of the first “pink wave,” when a large number of women won seats in an election. The 19th amendment, guaranteeing women the right to vote, had been passed just two years earlier. Nationwide, more than 30 women were elected to state legislatures in 1922.

FARGO — Whoever said a proper date has to be expensive is wrong, especially in North Dakota, according to a recent study. The season of pumpkin spice lattes, hayrides, jack-o'-lanterns and trees shedding their leaves is upon us. Inching closer to the holidays and family gatherings, there is a statistical spike in marriage proposals as the year winds to a close. Meanwhile, pop culture insists that romance and the holidays go hand-in-hand.
ST. PAUL — A West Fargo man was convicted Friday, Sept. 14, in Minnesota of threatening to kill a federal judge. U.S. District Judge Wilhelmina Wright ruled against Robert Philip Ivers, 65, last year when he sued a life insurance company.

FARGO — Like any other industry, the service industry has its ups and downs — and those downs for servers and bartenders can include everything from harassment to customers' overconsumption of alcohol. That's not to say alcohol is always problematic in this line of work, but when customers take it too far, the very people tasked with serving thirsty and hungry patrons can become targets of harassment and low tips.
MOORHEAD — Pollinator projects are becoming more common in Fargo-Moorhead and across North Dakota to ensure that native pollinators have access to certain plants. Pollinator habitat projects and gardens, along with data gathered from studies, may prevent future endangered species listings. The non-profit conservation organization Pheasants Forever will begin planting Moorhead's next pollinator project in June along the Red River.
FARGO — Lincoln Elementary fourth-graders got to play reporter Tuesday afternoon, April 24, when Gov. Doug Burgum stopped by for a visit.

The students led an enthusiastic discussion about North Dakota state facts, while the governor provided supplemental knowledge. They covered such things as weather, wind speeds, sugar beets and much more.
