While Grand Forks leaders continue to examine a citywide housing shortage, surrounding communities have found themselves in a similar situation. Grand Forks County officials met with representatives from Grand Forks Air Force Base and several cities in North Dakota and Minnesota Wednesday to get an understanding of what their neighbors’ housing inventories look like.
The U.S. job market is proving surprisingly strong and raising hopes that the economy will be resilient enough this year to withstand a budget standoff in Washington and potentially deep cuts in federal spending.

Big changes are coming in how a fourth of all Minnesotans get health insurance as the state rushes to build a new kind of marketplace that will help about 1.3 million people choose their best coverage options.
Strong earnings from tech giants nudged the stock market to a five-year high Wednesday. Investors drew encouragement from a vote by the House of Representatives to let the government keep paying all of its bills for another four months.
What's not to like about Dow 13,000? While most investors cheered when the blue-chip index closed above that level Tuesday for the first time since May 2008, some were wringing their hands. The Dow Jones industrial average has left the Dow transportation average behind, and that could mean trouble.
Stock indexes crept lower today, putting the Dow Jones industrial average on track for its third losing week this year. The Dow fell 9 points to 12,970 as of 2:30 p.m. Eastern time. That's a loss of 0.1 percent. American Express Co. dropped 1.1 percent, the biggest fall among the 30 companies in the Dow.
Better news on the job market and home sales sent stocks higher on Wall Street Thursday. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 135 points, nearly making up its 140-point loss from the day before. The S&P 500 edged back into the black for 2011, with just one more day of trading left in the year.
The Dow Jones industrial average closed down 2.42 points Friday, less than 0.1 percent, at 11,866.93. It had been up as many as 99 points after the Italian government won a confidence vote on austerity measures. It turned mixed around midday as Fitch warned that it might downgrade the debt of Italy, Spain and four other countries that use the euro.
A rally that pushed major stock indexes up more than 7 percent this week stalled today. Stocks wavered between slight gains and slight losses in late afternoon trading, a day after the market posted its biggest gain in two and a half years.
Worrying economic signals from China and the U.S. sent stocks sharply lower today. The Dow Jones industrial average sank 190 points. Overseas markets also declined after an auction of German debt drew surprisingly little interest. Germany has Europe's biggest economy and has been the main financial backer of bailouts for its smaller neighbors like Greece and Portugal. The wariness about German debt suggests that the crisis might be infecting the large nations that are doing the most keeping the euro currency afloat.

Investors were taking few chances Friday while they waited for a confidence vote in Greece on the country's embattled prime minister. Stocks fell on concerns that the country might not go through with an austerity program needed to prevent a default on its debt.
