FARGO—As the Goo Goo Dolls return to Fargo for tonight's show at Scheels Arena, the 31-year-old group approaches a significant anniversary. While co-founders John Rzeznik and Robby Takac landed on the charts with 1995's "Name," it was "Iris" three years later that made the band big stars. The ballad remained atop Billboard's Hot 100 Airplay chart for a record 18 weeks and was eventually nominated for three Grammys.

PARK RAPIDS, Minn. — Park Rapids, Minnesota, is known for the lakes and lands that surround it. Once a thriving timber town, the small community now caters to tourism with more than 70 lakes and six state forests in the area as well as Itasca State Park, the headwaters of the Mississippi River. While the outdoors are the main attraction, there's a buzz coming from Hubbard County's 117-year-old historic courthouse. The second floor is home to the Nemeth Art Center, and it's attracting not just vacationers, but artists from around the country.
FARGO — Calling him, "One of the most recognized radio voices in Fargo-Moorhead and the Upper Midwest," KFGO radio announced Monday, July 17, that longtime host Tom Wynn is retiring.

FARGO—The Fargo Civic Center will be rocking when Stone Sour plays there on Sept. 28. The Grammy-nominated heavy metal act, featuring Slipknot vocalist Corey Taylor, is touring behind its sixth album, "Hydrograd." The comical glam spoof band, Steel Panther, and Cherry Bombs open the show.
MOORHEAD—While Disney's version of "Beauty and the Beast" is only 26 years old, it feels like—to quote Mrs. Potts—"a tale as old as time." Trollwood's staging of the musical doesn't need any updates and the results are an entertaining mix of great talent and theater magic. As the female lead, Sarah Schulz is indeed the Belle of the ball with a voice that is not only a Beauty, but surprisingly strong and polished for a high school performer. Her delivery on "Home" is one of the show's highlights and well-deserving of applause.
MOORHEAD—Trollwood Performing Arts School's "Beauty and the Beast" opens tonight, but for some in the production, it's the end of an important chapter in their lives. A group of seven recently graduated high school seniors will say goodbye to the arts program after 10 years of involvement. Trollwood's mainstage musical is open for kids from 14 to those who graduated high school during the performance year.
