What’s the biggest trend in your industry right now?

“There is a lot of talk about electric vehicles, but I think the biggest trend is the technology and complexity being added to all parts in a vehicle,” Carlson said. “Even something as simple as a battery has a system in the car that monitors its performance and adjusts charging and power consumption based on that. This added complexity can be nice but can make repairs much more challenging.”

“We recently opened our third location in West Fargo on 13th Avenue in front of Menards,” Carlson said.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
