When Annette Krinke and her family were driving by their pasture 15 miles south of Scranton on Tuesday something caught her eye. The group turned around and got out of the pickup only to find tall "ice spikes" coming out of a small creek. Now it has grown to over 7 feet. "This is a fifth-generation farm and my father-in-law is 85 and he's never seen one ever," Krinke said. "I've talked to everyone I can think of, especially older people, and I've only ever been able to find one picture ... of one in Iowa."

A group of local pool sharks got together this weekend for a tournament and raised more than $700 for a local police department program that helps make sure kids have at least one present under the tree this year. Slayton Thomas, organizer of the tournament, said he knows a child that was nominated for Shop with a Cop in the past and wanted to find a way to give back to officers who may spend money out of their own pocket when kids spend a little more than they should on the gifts.

While we may be months removed from one of the driest summers in recent memory, local officials are asking people to be mindful when burning trash and other items outdoors.

If the rating is at blue or green, burning is allowed, but according to the county's burn ban there are no large garbage pits or controlled burns allowed at this time. A map of the rating is available at www.nd.gov/des/planning/fire-danger-awareness .
