EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — A Twin Cities mother is drawing mixed reactions after she wore her 1-year-old son on her back Friday, Oct. 5, while giving an on-air weather forecast. Susie Martin, who is a meteorologist with Eden Prairie-based weather company Praedictix, said she wore her son to work to promote International Babywearing Week, an annual week-long outreach event that promotes babywearing as a universally accepted practice.
FARGO — Sarah Haeder began protesting outside abortion clinics when she was in third grade. Haeder, 41, of Moorhead, grew up in Emery, S.D., a small town of just over 400 people located 25 miles southeast of Mitchell, and was raised in a family she described as “devout Roman Catholics.” Haeder’s anti-abortion roots were instilled in her by her grandparents, who, Haeder said, “played a key role in my upbringing.” During the summer months of third and fourth grade, Haeder tagged along with her grandparents as they traveled to abortion clinics throughout the Midwest to protest.

DETROIT LAKES, Minn. — On Oct. 5, 2014, then-42-year-old Melissa Dawn Eagleshield went missing after being last seen leaving a friend’s residence in rural Becker County.

HAWLEY, Minn. — Katelyn Ann Bjorndahl knew how to make people smile. Her sense of humor was as infectious as her personality, those close to her say. If you were in a room with Katie and you didn't know who she was, you wanted to get to know who Katie was. "People gravitated towards her," said her mother, Lisa Bjorndahl. On Saturday, Sept. 29, Katie died unexpectedly at Sanford Health Hospital in Fargo. She was 20. "There was no warning," her mother said. "If it can happen to her, it can happen to anybody."
Cell phone users who receive an emergency alert on their phones this afternoon, Wednesday, Oct. 3: don't be alarmed. It's only a test.
FARGO — While at band practice Wednesday night, Sept. 26, 42-year-old Luke Helm, of Fargo, received an unlikely notification on his phone. It was from his Ring Video Doorbell app. The alert came across his phone just before 10 p.m., an uncommon time for visitors to be arriving at his home, he said. The Ring doorbell works by placing it outside your front door and hooking it up to an existing Wi-Fi network, which then creates a ring of security around the home.
FARGO — Just days after a procedure to remove a cancerous tumor in his brain in late August, 37-year-old Travis Anderson, of Fargo, thought he'd take a shot in the dark. A hail mary, if you will. "I didn't really know if he would reply," Anderson said. Equal parts fantasy football junkie and Minnesota Vikings fan, Anderson turned to an unlikely resource to open up to and share his story. It was with ESPN's Matthew Berry, the foremost face — and voice — in fantasy football today.
LE CENTER, Minn. — Lloyd Tiede never cries. "I have never seen my Dad cry besides when his father passed away," said Adrianna Tiede, Lloyd's daughter. But in a phone call with his daughter Thursday, Sept. 13, Tiede, 55, simply couldn't hold back the tears any longer. And neither could she. "I could tell right when I picked up the phone that it wasn't good news," Adrianna said. "I answered and it was quiet on the other end." For Adrianna, the silence was telling, perhaps even more than words.
