Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Another week, another round of nasty weather. Ground drifting and inches of falling snow are causing the roads to deteriorate by the second. Numerous accidents have already been reported throughout the area.
Fergus Falls, Minn. (WDAY TV) - It's almost unthinkable: flood fighting in December! But a row of Fergus Falls residents already have to sandbag to fight back rising waters. Ice jams in the Otter Tail River have caused the river to rise more than a foot and a half overnight.
Homeowners from just yards away from the big spill got quite a surprise: Some had to hear the news from their family. Dozens of homes sit just on the east side of the Jamestown rail yard, within view of where the cars derailed, but some didn't hear a thing! And as luck would have it, the couple's home is the same as what over-turned near their backyard.
Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - After six days, witness testimony wrapped up today in the Fargo dentist murder-for-hire case. It was a discrepancy of stories in the courtroom, where Oklahoma man Michael Nakvinda is standing trial for murdering Philip Gattuso. The prosecution and defense cross-examined Nakvinda for 4-and-a-half hours.
Lisbon, ND (WDAY TV) - Picture this: Telling a group of kids they each have more than 100 dollars to spend on toys. Can you imagine the frenzy in the aisles? Tonight, 6 different law enforcement agencies from the Lisbon area took children who've suffered a family loss, or financial difficulties, on a shopping spree.
(WDAY TV) - Minnesota's attorney general has filed a lawsuit against credit card giant Discover. The suit claims customers were charged for programs such as wallet protection and payment protection, but failed to get the O-K from customers.

Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - The end of one era and the beginning of another for the Forum of Fargo-Moorhead starts tomorrow. After 4-decades, Forum publisher William Marcil will officially step aside tomorrow morning, handing over the leadership to his son Bill Marcil Jr. The change comes as the newspaper industry is rapidly changing.
Hawley, Minn. (WDAY TV) - Highways are glare ice in some parts of the area. Minnesota State Patrol officers have responded to two jackknifed-semi crashes, and a state trooper was even side-swiped east of Fergus Falls because of slick roads.
Hickson, ND (WDAY TV) - A united front. That's what some in the city of Oxbow and the Bakke and Hickson subdivisions are trying to create against the Army Corps of Engineers' revised diversion plan. It includes upstream storage cells and could send an additional 3-7 feet of water to those areas during a flood.
Valley City, ND (WDAY TV) - The inspiration to fill hungry stomachs this holiday season is spreading 60 miles west. Students throughout Barnes County have gathered thousands of pounds of food and packed it up for area food pantries.
Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - It's not the typical way to buy a piece of property: sitting in a room with about 50 people, throwing bids out, hoping to get residential, commercial, or industrial land. Cass County held its annual sale of real estate on land with over-due property taxes and this year, there were triple the amount of properties because of a recent state law.
Detroit Lakes, Minn. (WDAY TV) - It's a new season and a new year; one without a major player on the ice. The Detroit Lakes boy's hockey team is dedicating its season to Landon Hochstetler. He's recovering from being hit by a car while rollerblading this fall.
