Power Outage

FARGO – Some people in Fargo and East Grand Forks had their AC and power shut off for a short amount of time over the weekend, as the hot weather and an electricity overload caused issues for roughly 1,000 people.

Crews were about to get the power back on at around 10:45 p.m. Sunday with the main area effected being in the Fargo Davies High School. In East Grand Forks, there were clusters of people affected throughout the city, with crews getting the power back on there at around 11:30 p.m. Sunday.

FARGO — Fargo's riverside bow hunting program may have new life after all.


After the City Commission came close to ending the program last year, negotiations have been taking place and a new partnership between the Sandhills Archery Club, Fargo Park District, North Dakota Game & Fish Department and the city is emerging.

"We are making progress, but we aren't there yet," City Commissioner Dave Piepkorn said.

Assistant City Administrator Mike Redlinger said the groups have been meeting and are planning a revised program that will need final approval from the City Commission and the Park Board.

The city commissioners unanimously approved the program late last month. Full story here.
