FARGO—Marlene Beranek has just one minor complaint about Eventide Fargo. "They keep you busy. It's good, but then I can't get my place cleaned," she said with a laugh as she rushed on to the next activity Monday, July 18. Beranek and her husband, Dick, were two of the first residents to move into the new campus in south Fargo that includes a 96-unit care center and 76 senior living apartments. It's is the fourth campus in the metro area for the organization that was founded here in the late 1940s. It also operates facilities in Jamestown and Devils Lake.
SABIN, Minn.—At the Sabin General Store, customers can buy a rootbeer float, old-fashioned soda, take-and-bake pizza, vintage toys, toilet paper, canned goods, beer, ice, bait and much more. While it's nearly impossible to be all things to all people, the store's new owners, Matt and Shana Sharp, are doing their best. "We're basically a bunch of different stores in one. We're a candy store. We're an old-fashioned soda store. We're a toy store, a grocery store, a liquor store, a restaurant with pizzas and an old-fashioned soda fountain," Matt Sharp said.

FARGO—CEO Roger Reierson rarely talks publicly about Flint Group's success, but he made an exception last month in advance of the advertising agency's 70th anniversary party.

AMOR, Minn.—Jon and Brenda Kaspari decided it was time to think outside the box last week as the search for their missing Siberian Husky-cross entered its sixth day. Lucy, who is 15 years old and partially blind, wandered away from their home near Amor on July 1. The couple's daughter, Leah Kaspari, suggested they call Drone Dan, a drone pilot from Horace, N.D., she recently read about on social media. Dan MacDonald, aka Drone Dan, and a friend brought their quadcopters out to search for Lucy that evening
FARGO—Almost exactly one year ago, Metro Drug closed its doors. Mourning the loss of the business open since 1982 also meant wondering what was in store for the southeast corner of Broadway and Second Avenue, a prime spot in the heart of downtown. Turns out, what's in store for the old Metro Drug building is multiple stores. In January, Kilbourne Group announced its plans to buy the building from Swanson Properties, along with a number of others downtown.
FARGO — Rick Stenerson jokes that he came up with the idea for Urban Dinosaurs, his new graphic T-shirt line, because he was looking for a reason to go to Las Vegas he could write off. The T-shirt idea, however, dates back much further. As a child, Stenerson remembers his dad once drawing a dinosaur on his T-shirt with a black marker. He loved it, but, unfortunately, it was gone after the first wash.
