VALLEY CITY, N.D.—The family of an elderly Valley City man who died recently at a Fargo hospital, one week after being detained and jailed for DUI, has consulted an attorney to look into circumstances of his arrest and incarceration. Warren Lindvold, 72, was arrested in the early morning hours of July 15, after a Valley City police officer saw his vehicle drifting back and forth and twice hitting a curb. According to the police report, Lindvold also left the initial traffic stop, before the officer was able to pull him over a second time.

The enclosure's appearance is unmistakable, however; it was once a bear cage in a city zoo here. Most people may think the Red River Zoo in Fargo is the area's first, but Moorhead's zoo got its start nearly 90 years ago and ran for about a five-year span. Mark Peihl, senior archivist at the Historical and Cultural Society of Clay County, chronicled its short but important past in a recent blog post titled "A Moorhead Zoo."

FARGO — People living, working or passing through the western edge of downtown Fargo have probably caught a whiff of a mothball-like smell — an unmistakable odor that may stick around through the fall.

FARGO — As horse trainers go, Sharlene Reuer might be in a league of her own. The rural Jamestown woman is one of just a handful of women trainers, preparing for the opening weekend of racing at the North Dakota Horse Park here Saturday and Sunday, July 14 and 15. Reuer, 57, is also believed to be the only one in the state who "does it all," from grooming and exercising, to spending countless hours learning what makes her horses tick.
