The Moorhead City Council’s reluctance to embrace its role as a full partner in the Fargo-Moorhead diversion project is shortsighted and parochial. It suggests the city’s leadership (or at least a portion of it) is content to look inward at a time when the F-M metro is expanding and solidifying its place as a significant regional urban center.
The story in the May 27 issue of inforum and The Forum about Brigid Steele’s encounter with Lyme disease is very sad, unfortunately not uncommon, and likely would have been different if she could have been vaccinated against the disease.

TNT Kid’s Fitness & Gymnastics was host to over 700 athletes from seven states April 9-13. The tournament was held at the Fargodome.
