GRAND FORKS - Amanda Vogt and her girlfriends want to put a stop to men having all the fun. "It seems that men are always gone hunting or fishing with their friends on the weekend," she said. "We deserve something fun on the weekends, too." Vogt, a mother of two in Grand Forks, joined five of her friends recently on a motorcycle trip to Grand Rapids, Minn. The women didn't let anything get in their way of a good time. Taking her breast pump with her on the road, Amanda pumped during her trip. "Women shouldn't let being a mom get in the way of having a girls-only weekend," she said.

FARGO - Laura McShane, The Forum's Beautiful Woman for the month of June, lost her battle with cancer on Friday. "Her last breaths were very peaceful," said Laura's husband, Ross McShane. McShane and a few close friends were with Laura at their home in her final moments. The couple's 5-year-old twins, Dylan and Macy, gave their mother one last kiss before a night of cuddling with their father. "The kids know she's an angel now," he said.
FARGO - The Erhardts took their three young children with them halfway around the world - no easy task. Immersed in a new language, culture and thousands of miles from home, the family learned to live in a whole new way. "It was our first time moving away from our Fargo home," Lindsay said. "It was a big adjustment for us." Ben, 8, was eager to learn the language (Swahili) and people's names. He collected baseball gloves prior to leaving the U.S. to give to children in Kenya. "He was just a rock star," Lindsay said.
