WEST FARGO—The Red River Valley Fair has hit West Fargo again, July 10-15, for the 51st year. With it comes food, live music and rides, but how safe are the rides we trust every time we visit the fair? Currently, North Dakota doesn't require a state inspection of amusement park rides, but past incidents reveal how dangerous amusement park rides in North Dakota and Minnesota can be. Red River Valley Fair General Manager Bryan Schulz says the rides are always properly inspected, despite the lack of state regulation.
FARGO—Many gathered in the Sanctuary Events Center Wednesday, June 20, to witness 73 individuals to complete their process in becoming a U.S. citizen through the naturalization ceremony. North Dakota Supreme Court Justice Lisa Fair McEvers was the featured speaker while U.S. Magistrate Judge Alice Senechal presided over the ceremony for new citizens who came from across North Dakota.
WEST FARGO-- The skies were clear, and the wind was perfect for a evening of skydiving. Sheila Carter was out there to enjoy skydiving for the first time, but this evening meant more. Carter is an employee at Bell Bank and receives $1,000 from them yearly to contribute to the community through their Pay It Forward program. This year she used the money to pay for four veterans' skydiving trips in honor of her father who served in Vietnam and died October 2017.
