DALLAS - After Matthew McNellis and his girlfriend tried every lure in their tackle box and still came up emptyhanded, they figured they'd try the one piece of bait they had left in their boat.

FARGO - When 40-year-old West Fargo resident Damon Ouradnik started an online petition to halt refugee resettlement in North Dakota, he never thought that two years later he would be inviting the same refugees he petitioned against into his home.
A North Dakota motorist received quite the hefty fine while speeding through the highways of Manitoba on Monday, May 1. According to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in Manitoba's Facebook page, a North Dakota motorist was pulled over for speeding Monday afternoon. After being pulled over, the man wasn't quite sure why, noting that he was following the speed limit of 100 mph. Or so he thought. While technically the driver was going 100 miles per hour, in Canada, as most of us know, they don't go by miles per hour.
PHILADELPHIA -- Carson Wentz confirmed Thursday that he underwent vision correction surgery this offseason. In an interview with a Philadelphia radio station Thursday morning, Carson Wentz confirmed he had the vision correction surgery done in January.

PRK, or Photorefractive Keratectomny, is a laser surgery that reshapes the cornea that typically results in 20/20 vision.

GRAND FORKS—When Lauren Hennessey and her parents left their Boston home at 4:30 a.m. Wednesday and boarded a plane for Grand Forks, her dream of one day playing Division I college hockey was as alive as ever. A native of Lynnfield, Mass., Hennessey lived, breathed and ate hockey since she was old enough to know how to lace up her skates.

It was the shot heard around the state Saturday, March 18, at the Class B State Championship in Minot. Kyle Henningsgard, as time faded to zero on the game clock, sunk a three pointer to win the North Dakota Class B Boys State Basketball Tournament for the Hillsboro-Central Valley Burros over defending champion Four Winds-Minnewaukan. But soon after the shot was made, something else happened (watch the video above to see). Perhaps getting even more attention than the actual game-winning shot was Hillsboro-native and former Burro basketball player Thomas Meyer.
NFL teams announced performanced-based pay results from the 2016 season Wednesday, and a former Bison standout offensive lineman was at the top of the list for the Colts. Colts offensive lineman Joe Haeg earned $276,000 in performance-based pay in his rookie season with Indianapolis. Performance-based pay is supplemental pay based on total snaps and weighted towards players with lower salaries, which can be an added incentive for young players taken in mid-to-late rounds of the NFL draft or undrafted college free agents.
