FARGO — In response to Fargo Shanley High School and another Christian school being prohibited from broadcasting prayers before football playoffs in 2015, some North Dakota lawmakers are proposing a bill to prevent that from happening again. Rep. Kim Koppelman, R-West Fargo, said he wrote the bill after speaking with people who wanted to file a lawsuit against the North Dakota High School Activities Association. "I don't think that's the most constructive way to respond."
FARGO — Traffic lights and streetlights in some parts of town may soon sprout mysterious looking cylinders and cabinets, bringing with them better reception and faster streaming for cellphone users.

FARGO — The departure of Sears from the metro was driven primarily by the West Acres Shopping Center, according to mall management.

FARGO — In preparation for North Dakota's first sizeable outlet center, earthmovers here have spent months reshaping land near the Timber Creek Addition on the city's south side. It's one of the few visible signs that a regional retail center that's second in size only to West Acres is emerging northeast of the intersection of 52nd Avenue South and Interstate 29.
FARGO — In a commercial running on local TV, images of the 1997 flood disaster scrolled by. There's one of water lapping against the front entrance of Grand Forks City Hall. Another shows a house cracked like an egg, presumably by the shifting ground beneath. Still another showed the remains of the Security Building in Grand Forks, gutted by an electrical fire.
FARGO — When city and county voters consider ballot measures on Nov. 8 to extend 1½ cents of existing sales taxes to pay for the flood diversion, it might seem like a referendum on the project. But Cass County Auditor Mike Montplaisir, a member of the Diversion Authority's finance committee, said he expects that the project to channel Red River floodwaters around the metro area will march on regardless of the vote.
