MOORHEAD — Moorhead will now have a silhouetted, work-of-art water tower to welcome its residents and visitors into the city. Moorhead Public Service unveiled the design of the Woodlawn water tower Thursday, Aug. 2.

Su Legatt, the project's facilitator, wanted to create a water tower that displayed the identity of the town and served as a welcoming beacon when coming into Moorhead.
MOORHEAD — A Yazidi woman held captive by Islamic State militants and forced into sex slavery for a year will share her story of torture and suffering this weekend at a Moorhead church.

FARGO — For the first time, attendees of the Downtown Fargo Street Fair will be allowed to stroll down the sidewalk drinking alcohol, thanks to a law passed this year by city commissioners. So, does this mean the family friendly event will turn into a pub crawl? Fair organizers say no. "This is just five vendors along the boundaries. It's not one of those things where you get a mug and hit 20 stops, chug, then leave," said Melissa Rademacher, head of the Downtown Community Partnership (DCP), which puts on the fair that runs Thursday, July 19, through Saturday, July 21.
