ORLANDO, Fla. - We’re all concerned about the fate of the packages we order online. Will the order be correct? Will it be safe on my doorstep until I get home from work? But a Florida couple’s experience adds a new wrinkle to those anxieties. After ordering some plastic totes to help them with storage around their Orlando home, the couple reportedly got way more than they bargained for: 65 pounds of marijuana.
FARGO - A beloved Fargo dentist is being remembered today for his "...gentle and kind manner, integrity, state-of-the-art care, funny jokes, and comforting prayers before dental procedures." Paul Fredrikson died Monday, Oct. 16 at the age of 68, according to an obituary published in the Thursday, Oct. 19 Forum newspaper. He began his dentistry practice, Smile Care, in 1979.
The common wisdom goes a little something like this: A herd is only as fast as its slowest members, which would be the first to get eaten if they’re chased by a predator.

Remember those painted lady butterflies that were showing up in gardens across the upper Midwest just a few weeks ago? In their move back south, they made their presence known in a big way.

In a video now viewed over 13 million times, a California man simply gets out of bed. That might not seem too incredible, but the circumstances of it are. Thomas Gunderson was shot in the leg while attending the Route 91 Harvest Festival on Sunday, Sept. 30 when a gunman sprayed bullets from a hotel window overlooking the crowd of thousands. He was in his hospital bed when a couple of visitors stopped by, namely President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump.
Last year, at about this time, Minnesota Twins fans barely had a handful of crumbs to hold onto after a disastrous 103-loss season. But this year? Hope springs eternal--fresh out of the oven, you could say--as the Twins square off tonight against the New York Yankees in a Wild Card playoff game, with the winner advancing to face the formidable Cleveland Indians. The icing on this delicious turn of events was provided by the local doughnut heroes at Sandy’s Donuts, who produced a Twins-themed doughnut today that quickly sold out at its downtown Fargo location.
For living observers of the American economy (and those of us with 401Ks), 2008 will go down as one of the worst years in memory. On Sept. 29, 2008, the Dow Jones Industrial Average crashed like a meteorite, plummeting 777 points in what remains its worst single-day loss on record. The reason? A bailout bill meant to inject taxpayer money into failing banks saddled with toxic debt during the mortgage crisis of 2007-2008 was defeated in the U.S. House of Representatives, 228-205. The Forum’s front page on Sept. 30 of that year blared: “FAILOUT.”
In response to several tweets on the issue over the weekend from President Donald Trump, a lot of people--famous and not--took to Twitter voicing their opinion on whether professional athletes are right in kneeling during the national anthem as a form of protest.
Your eyes pop open. A sliver of blinding sunlight has managed to slip between your drapes and fall on your face. Pain throbs behind your eyes and your tongue sticks to the roof of your mouth as you slowly sit up and cradle your head in your hands. “Uggghh. I’ll never drink again,” you say to yourself. You said this the last time this happened. You’ll say it the next time it happens. But now’s not the time for remorse.
