MOORHEAD - A former bookkeeper for a Lutheran synod based in Moorhead is facing felony forgery and theft charges after police say he swindled more than $600,000 from the church, spending more than half that on remodeling his house outside of Wolverton.

The National Weather Service put out an urgent message this afternoon saying the winter storm hitting the region tonight into Tuesday morning could drop a foot of snow - or more in spots - by later Monday and make travel hazardous beginning tonight.

Bruce Sederberg had caught enough big lake trout that he knew he had something special on his line that January afternoon. He had caught 15- to 20-pounders on Ontario's White Otter Lake before. But after playing this one for about 20 minutes, he thought it might be different. "The longer and longer it went, I kept saying, 'My word, what do I have?'" said the Duluth angler. What he had was the catch-and-release ice-fishing world-record lake trout, a 46-incher that likely weighed more than 40 pounds. Sederberg received word Feb.

Be careful out there. Never assume the ice is 100 percent safe and don't think it's always "other people" who fall through the ice. This winter has been a deadly one in Minnesota. The Department of Natural Resources (DNR) reports that the 2012-13 season, November to April, is on track to be the deadliest on the ice in more than five years. So far this winter, five people have died after going through the ice in Minnesota. A sixth person is missing and presumed drowned.
