Former first lady turns 95


BISMARCK -- North Dakota's former first lady Grace Link turned 95 Friday.

And every day, the wife of former congressman and Gov. Art Link, said "I get up in the morning, put a smile on my face no matter how much I'm hurting, and say, 'today is going to be a good day,' and it always is."

Grace and more than 50 other friends spent the afternoon at the former governor's mansion here as the Democratic-NPL party honored Link for her commitment to the party and state.
