    Court documents say Brandt asked the 911 operator, "I just wanna ask you a question, am I going to prison?" Brandt allegedly told the 911 dispatcher, "I hit him and I didn’t mean to, and he’s subdued, I was scared to death, but he’s subdued, he can’t do anything to me now." Brandt added, "I almost, oh god, I almost just run away but I thought jeez obviously if it was a total accident I wouldn’t be scared but I know it was more than that," according to the affidavit.

    The charges against a North Dakota man who allegedly hit a "Republican extremist" teenager with his car, resulting in his death, have been upgraded from vehicular homicide to murder. Further investigation into Shannon Brandt, 41, led Foster County State's Attorney Kara Brinster to dismiss Brandt's previous charges, upgrading them to murder and failure of duty in an accident involving death and injury on Friday. The murder charge alone is a Class AA felony, while vehicular homicide is a Class A felony. Brandt now faces a maximum penalty of life imprisonment without parole if found guilty of the murder charge. Should he receive the penalty of life with parole, he will still have to serve 30 years of his sentence before appearing before a parole board, according to the charging documents obtained by the Washington Examiner.

    FARGO, N.D. — Officials have identified the two people who died in a house fire in Fargo last week. Ninety-one-year-old Garnet Blouin and his 88-year-old wife, Jean Bloudin, died when the fire started in a home where they had lived for decades. Neighbor Lois Ellingson tells KVLY-TV that she's known the couple for more than 30 years and says they were inseparable. "Salt and pepper. You never saw one without the other. They were such a great couple together. They were so sweet," Ellingson said. Ellingson says they were active in the community. "They were here. They had rental properties. They were landlords. They’re someone who has lived here and knows the history of the block and watched it grow and change and morph. They saw families come and go," she said.

So we had to use other means like windows and doors, that type of stuff," says Fargo Fire Marshal Ryan Erickson. Two firefighters...

Yesterday, In-N-Out officially declined an invitation to move its entire operation to Florida, following weeks of pandering from Gov. Ron DeSantis and CFO Jimmy Patronis after the company had a high-profile spat with California health departments over proof-of-vaccination requirements.  According to a statement from In-N-Out Burger’s Chief Legal and Business Officer Arnie Wensinger, owner Lynsi Snyder-Ellingson had a phone call with DeSantis and stated that her fresh, never-frozen beef, have zero plans to relocate or even expand to Florida.  “On Monday, November 8, In-N-Out Burger President Lynsi Snyder-Ellingson had a phone call with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.

While we are thankful for the gracious invitation, In-N-Out Burger has no plans or intention to expand operations or...

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Some people love the mild weather we’re seeing right now, but others want winter to show up fast. But even without snow and thick ice, there are still some activities that are open now. From Cedar Lake to Bde Maka Ska, lakes in the Twin Cities are still deciding between Fall and Winter For Snowmobilers like Don Wineland, who rides with the Prior Lake snowmobile association,the snow can’t some soon enough. “I have a collection.

    Teenagers' brains can be damaged by smoking just the occasional joint of cannabis — with a resulting loss in cognitive function — a study has warned. US experts studying adolescent siblings found the early use of marijuana impacts the brain in a way that cannot be explained by genetic or environmental factors. Cannabis users were more likely to suffer from verbal memory issues — resulting in problems recalling things read or heard — the team noted. Teenagers' brains can be damaged by smoking just the occasional joint of cannabis, as pictured — with a resulting loss in cognitive function — a study has warned 'We wanted to expand our understanding of whether cannabis use is related to lower cognitive functioning,' said paper author and psychiatrist Jarrod Ellingson of the University of Colorado School of Medicine. 'There's a large body of evidence that cannabis use is linked to cognitive functioning, but we know that cannabis use is not isolated from other important risk factors.' 'That was the primary motivation behind this study, in which we compared siblings to account for many of these risk factors.' RELATED...
