MOORHEAD—Homeless families, once in a shelter, may be facing this weather head on.

A pregnant mother, Kendra Wallery, told us she has until 9 a.m. Tuesday to leave with her 14-month-old daughter, because she said one word. "I said the word 'f***ot.'

WEST FARGO—A West Fargo man's invention could more than double your gas mileage. A newly built model shows how Ernie Brookins is turning 50 feet of driving with gas into 400 feet of driving without gas.

Workers at the Great Plains Food Bank say an anonymous donor gave them a truck. It's already being used to bring "backpacks" with three meals of food to elementary students in need. The food for each backpack costs about $5. While the donor's identity remains a mystery, they say Friday's deliveries would not have been possible without the donation.
FARGO—From stormtroopers to lightsaber wielders, fans are getting ready for what Marcus Theater staff call the biggest premiere of the year. But in Century 10's biggest theater, a dentist bought every seat for their 7 p.m. showing. Like the robes of a Jedi, Dr. James Johnson threw on his best Star Wars scrubs for the big day.
