Regional reporter Ann Bailey takes a look at what counties north and south of Grand Forks along the Red River are doing to prepare for spring flooding.

Crime journalist Hannah Shirley delves into the third part in a series about mental health. As Grand Forks gears up for its “community collaborative” event on Saturday, March 7, she takes a look at how well-equipped the community is to handle mental health challenges.

Shirley also will be talking to law enforcement in Pembina County. The Pembina County Sheriff’s Office has posted somewhat of a joke on its Facebook page warning residents of meth in the community that could be contaminated with coronavirus and encouraging them to bring their meth to the sheriff’s office or allowing drug task force members to come test their meth for free in their homes. The post has been shared more than 1,500 times. The big question: Have they gotten any bites?

Look for these stories in print and online on Wednesday and Thursday.
