Ty's Take: Adios Packers, it's been three years of fun
Well, it's been fun. Nearly three years with the West Fargo Pioneer and more than six-and-a-half years with Forum Communications Co. overall, and I'm heading off on a new path. Other than stints in retail and concrete work, the newspaper business is all I know. Interviews, reporting,...

Ty's Take: Important spring sports dates you ought to know
