FARGO-North Dakota is getting a lot of attention lately from WalletHub.com, an online research tool for financial and consumer information.

The state featured prominently in a number of recent WalletHub lists, and the website's latest list ranks the Fargo metro area No. 1 in the country when it comes to metros with the best budgeters.

The list is based on things like average credit scores and the percentage of unbanked households.

Sioux Falls, S.D., was No. 2 on the list, while Rochester, Minn., and Minneapolis ranked third and fourth, respectively.

Jackson, Miss., came in last out of 150 metro areas.

I'm a reporter and a photographer and sometimes I create videos to go with my stories.

I graduated from Minnesota State University Moorhead and in my time with The Forum I have covered a number of beats, from cops and courts to business and education.

I've also written about UFOs, ghosts, dinosaur bones and the planet Pluto.
