FARGO — Thursday marks 4 years since the tragic killing of North Dakota State University freshman Tom Bearson. More than 1,400 days after the 18-year-old's life was taken, there are many questions left unanswered. Tom Bearson should have graduated from NDSU last spring. He should be a new nurse at a hospital somewhere, maybe near his hometown of Sartell, Minn.
WEST FARGO, N.D.—Tens of thousands of people are headed to West Fargo for all things ag this week. Even with massive crowds expected, some international visitors may be missing from the Big Iron Farm Show. The International Visitor Program at Big Iron usually draws around a hundred people from up to 25 countries. This year, only 15 countries are represented. Those missing visitors could mean fewer dollars for North Dakotan vendors. Dr. Mogana S. Flomo is a long way from home.
FARGO—Starting Tuesday, Sept. 11, access to the ROCO parking ramp along Roberts Street will be reduced to one lane. Crews will shift construction north. For drivers, it means if you want to park in the ramp, you'll have to approach from 2nd avenue. There will be only one lane in and out of the ramp, the one on the south side. The North side entrances will be closed. "It's going to be tight turns so just be mindful of oncoming traffic and take turns inside the ramp coming in and out," City of Fargo Engineer Scott Olson said.
FARGO—With only 25 days until the current farm bill expires, the Farm Bill Conference Committee is working to get a new one passed. North Dakota Senators Heidi Heitkamp and John Hoeven, as well as Representative Kevin Cramer, are part of the committee. One of the biggest questions in the new farm bill is SNAP reform, and whether the nutrition assistance program will be provided to as many people as in the past.
Hillsboro, ND- A Florida woman charged with negligent homicide and reckless driving after a crash that killed an unborn child in July will take a plea deal in Traill County.
WEST FARGO N.D.—The city of West Fargo is on pace for more DUI arrests than it's had in more than a decade, and by a huge margin. We live in an age when there's no shortage of ways to get around the metro safely. "I know a fair amount of people who use Uber if they're going across town," says Cole Sherbenske, a Fargo man who practices safe travel habits. Traditional taxis and rideshare apps make it easier than ever. "It's nice, especially in a small town to have Uber still," says Eliie Schneider, also of Fargo.
FARGO—A local real estate agency helped raise more than $30,000 for sick and injured children. Re/Max Legacy Realty and Designer Homes presented a check from more than 31 thousand dollars to Children's Miracle Network at Sanford Children's in Fargo today. Most of the funds were raised through a chairyt gold tournament back in June. In the past 3 years, Re/Max has raised more then 80 thousand dollars from the Children's Miracle Network. The money will help the hospital care for severely sick and injured children in need of special treatment.

Crews rushed to a wheat field a quarter after 10 a.m., Thursday, August 16, after a helicopter crashed in the middle of it.

KINDRED, N.D.—For Superior Grain Equipment, steel costs 20 percent more now than it did 3 months ago. Superior has massive amounts of inexpensive steel in reserve, and hasn't had to increase prices as much as competitors who are relying on current prices. The reserves won't last forever though, and neither will Superior's prices. "We haven't had a price increase for a long time, so now it's a bitter pill to swallow." says Josh Rauser, the sales Manager for Superior.
A Pelican Rapids firefighter played a huge role in finding a Fergus Falls mother who was abducted on Sunday. Saving lives is nothing new for Josh Steeves of Pelican Rapids. But the way the firefighter may have saved one on Sunday, is a little different. He and his wife Kellsey knew about the abduction of the Fergus Falls woman. Then they decided to do something about it.
