FARGO—Madison Christensen was the only girl in the sixth-grade tech club at Agassiz Middle School in 2004. Her friends didn't share or understand her interest in computers, but her brother encouraged her to stick with it. "I just remember my brother saying, 'Maddie, if you like it, do it. You don't need to follow what other people are doing,' " Christensen said. "I'm glad he did that."
FARGO—The last chance for customers to grab a cup of coffee from the Dunn Bros. at 1895 45th St. S. is Feb. 15. After nine years at the location, owners Meghann and Isaac Poku plan to close the store at the end of the business day. Meghann Poku said rising rent costs made it difficult to turn a profit in the 45th Street Marketplace. Instead, they plan to devote all of their resources to the Dunn Bros. location at 1310 25th St. S.
FARGO — When March Madness rolls around, tournament brackets circulate the office. When the Powerball jackpot is running high, hopeful workers pitch in for tickets. And for some employees in the Fargo-Moorhead area, Christmas brings another kind of office pool: Co-workers collect donations to support causes such as the Rape and Abuse Crisis Center and the YWCA. Others give of their time by ringing the bell for the Salvation Army.
FARGO — Janitors and custodians are often the unsung heroes of the workplace. They primarily work evenings and overnights, so it's easy for people to take for granted that the floors are clean, waste baskets empty and the paper towels restocked when they arrive at work or school each morning. Their work is a little more difficult this time of year as they maneuver around the office Christmas tree and haul out remnants of the holiday potluck. It doesn't bother Jeff Mitchell, who has cleaned office buildings for Dow Services of Fargo for over eight years.
