As Stacy Kusler watched runners from the Grand Forks Wild Hog Half Marathon begin to cross the finish line, she said this was her favorite part. Kusler was one of hundreds who volunteered at the race Saturday morning, all of whom bundled up to combat the cold, rainy weather to prepare food, maintain aid stations, greet runners and hand out medals.
As David Normandin waited in line on Thursday to search for a missing boy from rural East Grand Forks boy, he said he could imagine little worse for a parent than a missing child. Normandin, an East Grand Forks resident, was among hundreds of volunteers who patiently waited at the VFW Memorial Youth Center to be bused south of the city, where they would search mile-long stretches of terrain for 11-year-old Anthony Kuznia.

Rebuilding after storms is becoming a growth industry as the United States is slammed by more natural disasters, and leaders of the response efforts say the nation's recovery network functions as well as it does because of a backbone of volunteers nicknamed "disaster junkies."
Faced with growing demands on its police force and no money to add officers, the city of Tioga turned to a solution not often tried in North Dakota. About six months ago, four volunteers with the new Tioga Police Reserve Officer Association took to the streets to back up the city's five-officer police department.
The Wahpeton (N.D.) Fire Department is looking for a little help. The all-volunteer department has 40 members, and two are retiring later this year. First Assistant Chief Derek Miller said the department likes to have 45 members on staff, and no fewer than 40.
Swenson is among hundreds of grateful clients of the free service offered senior and low-income citizens. It’s a program called VITA, or Volunteer Income Tax Assistance, sponsored by AARP. It’s open to people of this area. Last year, about 600 received help, and this year, Margaret Fish said they should do more than that before the filing deadline in mid-April.
Fish has been the site coordinator since 1999. The service has been offered out of the Campbell Library for years. Before that, it was offered by faculty volunteers at UND.
