FARGO – When Jane Schuh was a graduate student at North Dakota State University in the 1990s, she sometimes had to stop her research because the power had failed in her building. Schuh, now a professor and administrator at the university, said it’s hard to conduct lab work when the lights go out. She said things in the Van Es building are better these days, but her veterinary and microbiological science research area still doesn’t have a backup power supply.
Fargo - Kim Seeb spent a good chunk of Thursday morning canvassing homeless campsites and handing out surveys to the people she found. As director of the homeless health program at Family HealthCare in Fargo, keeping in touch with the homeless is a big part of Seeb’s job. The homeless clinic, open from 7:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., is separate from the main clinic at Family HealthCare, 301 NP Ave.
FARGO – Attendance was lower for the second day of Fargo’s TEDx event, but the enthusiasm was still there. A few hundred people headed to the Fargo Theatre on Friday for TedxYouth@Fargo to soak up ideas from 10 speakers. Most of the audience ranged from middle school students to college graduates, and they weren’t afraid to make noise. The youth conference, now in its second year, is an offshoot of TEDx, a series of talks organized independently from the main TED group.
FARGO – A stellar concert season so far this year has led to big profits for the Fargodome. Officials at the city-owned arena expect it to net about $322,000 this year – more than three times what was budgeted. That’s due largely to a “very unusual” concert year, which has already seen a number of high-profile performers and is scheduled for more, said Susan Thompson, the Fargodome’s director of finance.

MOORHEAD – It turns out grandma was right. Eating your vegetables, exercising often and sleeping well are extremely important in dealing with depression and anxiety, a University of Minnesota doctor told health professionals Friday. In fact, the staples of “grandmother wisdom” may sometimes do more than medication can.
FARGO – When Donovon Nelson’s back problems started causing him to fall down, his wife, Mary, knew where he could get help. She recommended Hospice of the Red River Valley, which eased her mother’s last weeks of life. Hospice staff members started visiting the Nelsons and did the same for Donovon, allowing him to stay out of the hospital or a nursing home. Mary still remembers the names of the nurse and assistant who helped take care of him.
FARGO – Two in a row. Tara Bennett and Stacey Heary successfully scavenged the winning hidden coin Friday in the Northern Plains Coin Hunt - for the second consecutive day. The mother-daughter team seems to have honed its coin-sleuthing talents. Though they needed three clues to find the coin Thursday, one was enough on Friday. Friday’s first clue, “You’re on the right track to collecting today’s token,” may have suggested a train station to some seekers.
