FARGO—A woman is warning others after a frightening experience in downtown Fargo on Saturday, Oct. 13. She says it all happened along Broadway just after bar close, and that one minute she was walking to her car, and the next, running from danger. For Macy Gourneau, a fun night downtown this weekend, took a terrifying turn. "Very, very traumatizing, scary," Fargo resident Macy Gourneau said. Gourneau was with a friend when she says they passed a group of four or five men in their late 20s. She says the group cat-called her, but she ignored it.

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.

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.
