    Crowd Conscious

    A dense fog fell on Fargo Saturday morning, limiting visibility outside of the Fargodome. Luckily for North Dakota State, the dome protected the Bison from the outside conditions. In a sense, the fans protected the Bison, too. No. 2-seeded NDSU (13-1) uncharacteristically gave up 32 points and nearly 400 yards of offense to No. 7 Coastal Carolina, but pulled out a […]

    He has seen his home country in ruins. “When I entered Afghanistan in 2001, the streets were smelling like death,” the founder of Hope for Afghanistan said about life in Kabul.

    What’s Historic Versus What’s Just Old

    I gotta start by saying I’m a frequenter of downtown Fargo. Whether I’m meeting interviewees for articles, delivering the High Plains Reader or taking in an arts event, I’m downtown quite a bit, baby. It’s a great place to visit, whether you’re dropping dough on a meal, seeing a show or shopping. Downtown Fargo’s a place to be and see, […]

    ‘Hatred Will Not Have the Last Word’

    They say love conquers all, but for Theatre NDSU’s latest production, love is just enough to get nine characters through a night of reliving the past before an uncertain future. “The Women of Lockerbie,” based on the aftermath of the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 in 1988, tells its audiences of how one simple act can heal a world […]

    No. 2 NDSU Pulls Out Scrappy Win Despite Penalties

    I actually started writing this column before the game was over to try to console fans as if North Dakota State had lost on Saturday. After NDSU was down four points and had commited 11 penalties, I didn’t think the Bison were going to finish with the win. Embarrassing. The No. 2-seeded Bison proved me dead wrong and pulled out […]
