VALLEY CITY, N.D.—The idea of transforming older buildings into high-end living or office space has caught on big in a lot of larger cities, including Fargo-Moorhead. Now, a small town 60 miles to the west of F-M is getting in on the action. The 20-unit Pinnacle Condominiums, described as luxury homes, is being built in the former Mr. Spindle factory just off west Main Street in Valley City. The building was empty for about four years after Bob Matthews relocated his decking supply company from there to south Fargo.
FARGO—John North is glad the parents of Jacob Wetterling finally know what happened to their son after he was snatched from a rural road in St. Joseph, Minn., in 1989.

In a phone interview last week from his home in Albuquerque, N.M., North said he holds out hope that day will come. "A decent Christian burial would mean a lot to me," North said.

FARGO—It frequently happens here and across the country: A vehicle crashes into a building, another car, or even a bicyclist or pedestrian when the driver is startled or panicked and fumbles with the foot pedals. On Aug. 9, a vehicle vaulted on top of two others in the parking lot of Doolittle's Woodfire Grill here after the 27-year-old female driver hit the gas pedal instead of the brake. A police report stated that all three vehicles had to be towed away because of the damage.
