FARGO — When Dana Elias visited Fargo as a teen, she loved driving down historic Eighth Street and looking at all of the beautiful homes that lined it. Years later, when she and her new husband were looking for a home in Fargo, she knew exactly where she wanted to live.

FARGO — The minute Arika Elliott walked into the sweet little A-frame house on 10th Street near downtown Fargo, she knew she wanted to live there. She and her husband, Jim, were looking for a house in Fargo after deciding to sell their home on a 30-acre property in south Moorhead. Jim, 60, found the maintenance of the sprawling property and large home was becoming a burden. Plus, the couple owns two other homes — one in Florida and another on Pelican Lake in Minnesota.
FARGO — With his dark rimmed glasses, slightly tousled hair and neatly trimmed beard, Benoit Decormeille could easily be mistaken as just another hip 30-something if you saw him walking around downtown. But as soon as he speaks, his charming French accent lets you know he's not from North Dakota originally. Then watch him in the kitchen of Cafe Amaury in The Red Silo, meticulously crafting delicious French crêpes and other culinary delights. No, he's not from North Dakota.
ATHENS, Ohio — Forum columnist and kindness advocate Nicole Phillips didn't know why she needed to attend the Ohio University women's basketball game on Feb. 17, but she'd been asked to be there, so she sat in the stands with the rest of the fans.

At halftime, Phillips was called down to the floor and announced as the recipient of the Empowering Women Award, an honor bestowed annually by the university's Women's Center to a woman who has taken on leadership roles in an effort to improve the lives of women.

Nearly five years ago I found out I was expecting my son, and I was a little nervous. After growing up with two sisters, I assumed I was destined to have daughters. I remember telling someone shortly after that 20-week ultrasound that I had no idea how to even play with a boy — all I knew was Barbies and baby dolls. I quickly learned that boys are a ton of fun, and I have loved playing dinosaurs, trucks and superheroes with my son.
FARGO — To some people, the home at 611 Eighth St. S. here is the Charles and Matilda Roberts home. To others, it's the former sanitarium. To others still, it's the 30-year-old home of Roger and Margaret Nelson. All are true. That type of storied history is what happens when a home has been an integral aspect of the city's footprint since 1883. That's when Matilda Roberts drew up the plans for her grand home and watched it come to life, brick by yellow brick.
FARGO — It's no secret that many people are soured on the Super Bowl. Maybe you're a Minnesota Vikings fan still heartbroken about the dismal display back on Jan. 21. Maybe you don't like football, period. Maybe you can't stand the thought of watching a game featuring the perennial champions versus the underdog team with rabid fans.
