FARGO — A Page, N.D., boy who died Wednesday, July 12, after a two-vehicle crash in neighboring Steele County would have celebrated a birthday next week. Eight-year-old Braden Dahl was critically injured in the crash 10 miles west of Galesburg, a day before his death at a Fargo hospital. His mother, Bekka Dahl, 37, said Braden loved sports, the outdoors and hunting, and wanted to be just like his dad. "He was a bright light in our lives," Dahl said, choking back tears. She and her husband Justin have another son, 11-year-old Connor.
MOORHEAD, Minn. — The National Transportation Safety Board has issued a preliminary report on the crash of a vintage plane that killed Breckenridge, Minn., farmer and pilot Mark Yaggie on July 2. Among other findings, the NTSB said the plane struck a light pole along Interstate 94 just outside Moorhead before going down. Yaggie took off from Fargo's Hector International Airport at 6 p.m., enroute to Lyons Field in Pelican Rapids, Minn. No flight plan was filed.
FARGO—The first day of training with the Fargo Fire Department's new drone proved to be challenging because of the weather. The six firefighters learning to operate it didn't get a turn at the controls on Thursday, June 22, mainly because of winds of more than 20 mph and much higher gusts. Instead, only the person leading the training took it for a short test run. That didn't curb the enthusiasm of Dan Johnson, one of the firefighters who signed on.
FARGO — The Richland County Sheriff's Department says it's investigating a Catholic priest of the Fargo Diocese after reports of "inappropriate activities" with youths in his parishes. Investigator Josh Beto said there is "more than one" potential victim in the case and that he's fielded several calls from the public since the news about Father Thomas Feltman broke over the Memorial Day holiday weekend. Beto said anyone who has information or concerns can call the Fargo Diocese or sheriff's office, but added, "We would also like them to contact us."
FARGO—The recently concluded North Dakota legislative session brought a mixed bag of results for homeless shelters and advocates in the state. Legislators allocated $300,000 to the North Dakota Homeless Grant for the next two-year budget cycle, down from the $1.5 to $2 million in one-time funding earmarked for the previous two bienniums. However, lawmakers turned it into a budget line item, making future funding for homeless advocacy programs more secure.

FARGO — A vintage steam locomotive will chug through southeastern North Dakota soon, pulling excursion cars and giving people a rare opportunity to see train travel as it was more than 70 years ago.

FARGO — Elsie Brenkworth doesn't like people telling her what to do. So when her daughter who lives in Maryland lined up someone to visit the 93-year-old weekly at her home here, Brenkworth resisted. Volunteer companion Mary McCormack, 64, admits it was a stumbling start for the two. "At first, she tried to get rid of me," McCormack laughed, "so we did have some weeks when we didn't get together." Now, their friendship is humming along, with a two- to three-hour visit every Tuesday. "I do enjoy her, and I look forward to her coming," Brenkworth said.
