Out of all the aid Grand Forks Public Schools received in the aftermath of the Flood of 1997, Beth Randklev remembers the nonmonetary contributions the most. One company sent enough blankets for every student and staff member in the district. And she remembers people sent Christmas ornaments, too, because they understood the memories attached to such trinkets made them some of the hardest possessions for residents to lose.

When Lynn Mickelson speaks to groups of young people about drunk driving, he doesn't intend to judge them for drinking. He only wants them to understand how one choice to get behind the wheel drunk can drastically alter their lives or someone else's. The message hits close to home for Mickelson. His daughter, Allison Deutscher, her husband, Aaron Deutscher, their unborn child and their 18-month-old daughter, Brielle, of West Fargo, N.D., were killed in 2012 by a drunk driver traveling the wrong way on Interstate 94.

According to a news release from the IRS, 40 million Americans had not filed their taxes as of Thursday. Revenue service agents will be available 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. local time Saturday to answer last-minute questions from filers.

Under House Bill 1013, which determines funding for the department in the coming biennium, the program may be eliminated.
