CATHERINE KRUMMEY: 'Jupiter Ascending' is a descent for Wachowskis
The Wachowskis, Andy and Lana, have brought moviegoers both the "Matrix" films and "Speed Racer," so a little trepidation is necessary when going into their movies, knowing the visuals will be stunning while the plot may falter. "Jupiter Ascending" is no different, offering breathtaking...

Marilyn Hagerty: Little ones look up to UND basketball players
Dear Shirley, Wayne Nelson who head up the sports department here at the Herald hasn't asked me to write any more basketball stories. I guess he figures I said everything I knew in my letter to you last week. I just wanted to tell you one more thing — how much fun it...

THE EATBEAT: HuHot offers a lively lunch
With restaurants already in 17 states, HuHot Mongolian Grill has become firmly entrenched in Grand Forks. It is, indeed, a hot spot this winter. I found out just how hot when I made a trip over there with three UND students and again when I made a solo journey for lunch.

COMING HOME: Despite the uncertainty, next step is same
WATFORD CITY, N.D. -- Before you walk into most businesses here in Watford City, you’ll be greeted with a sign. It will probably be snowing or raining outside, and if it isn’t now, it was yesterday, so you’ll be asked to “Kindly Wipe Your Feet.” And you’ll understand,...

CATHERINE KRUMMEY: Great acting can't make up for forced premise in 'Black or White'
The promotional spots for "Black or White" play up the custody battle between Elliot (Kevin Costner) and Rowena (Octavia Spencer) for their granddaughter, Eloise (Jillian Estell), as a matter of race, as the film's title suggests. Disregarding that -- which the film does as the...

Marilyn Hagerty: UND basketball games are bright spot in winter
Dear Shirley, Wayne Nelson is a very nice person. He's sports editor of the Herald, and I think he was just joking when he suggested I should write the game story when he saw me come into a UND basketball game. I declined with a smile and took my aisle seat on Row 18 right behind...

THE EATBEAT: Amtrak food options minimal but hearty for weary travelers
Some people dream of elegant dinners on cruise ships far out at sea. Others fancy dinner in the diner on a train. One of them is my nephew, Harley Hansen (HH), who, from time to time, takes a ride on the Amtrak. He's a Californian who is likely to travel by train across the country...

Watch the pressure ridges
There's been a lot of TV coverage this winter about pressure ridges on area lakes, but the winter phenomenon is nothing new. Where there's ice, there's going to be pressure ridges -- or ice heaves, breakers or any number of other names that describe the massive cracks and upheavals...

HEALTH MATTERS: Despite flu shot's low effectiveness rate, everyone should still get it
Q. In a recent column, you talked about the flu and the benefit of getting a flu shot. But there sure seems to be a lot of flu going around, and I've heard this year's flu shot isn't very effective. A. Right on both counts. There is a flu outbreak going on that has been called "moderately...

BRANDI JEWETT: Living a hoppy life
The first time I ever had a beer, I had to spit it into a sink. I took a swig from a Grain Belt bottle, and it's safe to say my 17-year-old palate didn't appreciate the malty taste, which reminded me of moldy-smelling straw bales.
