FARGO - Drivers who travel on south University Drive through Fargo everyday have something to look forward to. At some point this week, all six lanes will re-open on the nearly $5 million project. There might still be a few workers there. They'll be working on things like curbs, street lights and stop lights. As for the I-94 exit ramp: that will have to wait until next week. This is also when left turns on the 18th Avenue intersection will come back.
JAMESTOWN, N.D.—Several people in Jamestown say they didn't notice a Sunday morning standoff because they slept through it. So did the suspect. Police say 20-year-old Chase Urie from Proctor Minnesota broke his way into a home just after 4:00 a.m. on Sunday. The man who lives there was inside, but family members next door were able to get him out. When officers showed up, the suspect started barricading himself inside. Three intense hours went by and SWAT negotiators heard nothing from Chase Urie.
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Senators confirmed Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court earlier this afternoon in a 50-48 vote. ABC News reports this is the most narrow marigin for any justice confirmation in more than 130 years. The controversial pick spent the past few weeks surrounded in sexual assault accusations. In Washington, the final roll call vote was interupted several times by shouting protesters. This confirmation is a victory for President Donald Trump. He will soon be able to take credit for appointing two conservative justices during his time in office.

FARGO — One of our servicemen got a surprise send-off while watching his daughter's volleyball game at Davies High School. After seeing the Eagles win in two sets, the team ran out with signs all wishing him well and thanking him for his service. They got everyone to come out for a fake "parents night." The surprise is they were really there to honor Aaron Krenz. Krenz will begin his deployment to Kuwait in just a couple of days. He says the surprise worked and calls this act of kindness incredible.
