Two competing farmer's almanacs have published conflicting winter forecasts, with one predicting a cold and snowy season and the other expecting one that is mild and dry. Each prediction is equally as likely to happen, according to one meteorologist. Predictions that are months away leave large margins for error. "I would not be surprised if this changes next week when they run the tests again," National Weather Service meteorologist Andrew Moore said.
GRAND FORKS — No cases of measles have been reported in North Dakota and only two cases were found this year in Minnesota. Both cases were reported in young children who contracted the virus during travels to Africa. Measles is a highly contagious and sometimes fatal virus. Symptoms incubate for the first few weeks and include fever, dry cough, runny nose, sore throat, inflamed eyes, white spots in the mouth and a large, blotchy skin rash. It is spread by coming into contact with infected fluids, like infected droplets from coughing, sneezing or talking.
HALLOCK, Minn.—The daughters of Becky Jo Look pleaded with the public for help in finding their mother nearly 23 years after she disappeared. In a video posted by the Kittson County Sheriff's Office on Friday, Aug. 31, Look's daughters, Laura and Misty, said they feared the worst after her disappearance, but they're "more hopeful than ever before" because of renewed interest in the case. For 22 years, there was only silence. Kittson County Sheriff Steve Porter said the case was not investigated and went cold.
Police say a Grand Forks man sneaked into a garage, stole a few tools and made it back out unnoticed—except for one important thing: He left his wallet. Police said they found Gary John Warren Suchor's wallet outside the front door of the 2100 Daisy Circle home Friday, August. 10. The 25-year-old Grand Forks man was charged Monday with burglary and criminal mischief. If convicted, he could spend up to five years in prison and pay a $5,000 fine.
