Eliot Glassheim was almost joking when he asked Corey Mock to buy his bookstore. The two state representatives from Grand Forks were driving home in November from a meeting in Bismarck when Glassheim inquired about Dr. Eliot's Twice Sold Tales, which sells used books online and appraises books.

Despite warmer-than-normal December weather, the first days of 2015 will be very cold -- but neither trend is an indication of the entire winter, a meteorologist said.
