FARGO — Two women are hospitalized, one reportedly in a coma in an intensive care unit, after smoking marijuana that may have been laced with a harmful chemical, according to one of the victims. Sierra Brown, 19, of Fargo, said she suffered numbness in her leg and was unable to walk before being brought to the emergency room at Sanford Medical Center on Sunday, June 9. The other woman, also 19, was later brought to the hospital by ambulance after being found unresponsive by family members.
FARGO — Mary Tiedeman, of Walker, Minn., is a longtime dog lover, but after her pet died a few years back, she didn’t get another one. It would be too tough, she said, because of the amount of time she spends driving back and forth for breast cancer treatment at Sanford Roger Maris Cancer Center in Fargo. Now, Tiedeman can get a canine fix as part of the healing process. Bailey, a 12-year-old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and participant in a new pet therapy program, stopped in to see Tiedeman on Wednesday, May 15, as she received her chemotherapy infusion.
FARGO — Children are taught to wear seat belts to stay safe in a vehicle, but when they board a large school bus there's no way for them to buckle up. While federal transportation safety agencies recommend lap-shoulder belts in all new school buses, most full-size school buses on the road don’t have them. So far, only eight states — none in the Midwest — have passed laws requiring bus seat belts. The reluctance may be due, in part, to a long, strong safety record of school buses.
