Grand Forks resident James Clark is looking for a dog, but not just any dog — one that bit him Tuesday while he and some friends were jogging. Clark said the group was running in Lincoln Drive Park between 6 and 7 p.m. when they crested a hill and surprised a woman walking with her two dogs. "I was focused on the bigger dog that had started running toward me, but then the smaller dog ran around behind me and bit me," he said. "There were a couple of bite marks but it didn't look that deep." Clark said he believes the smaller dog was a beagle.

In about a week, I'll be surrounded by hundreds of sweaty strangers singing — or more likely shrieking — in unison songs performed by my favorite band. I'll be heading to the Twin Cities to see All Time Low, a band I first discovered right after I graduated high school and entered the adult world. I think everyone has that band they think just gets them.
