FARGO, N.D. – The three Empire Liquors employees had no problem listing off the reasons why North Dakotans drink more beer than any other state’s residents.
“What else is there to do here?” Mike Kemp asked in between helping customers buy alcohol late Tuesday afternoon at the downtown Fargo liquor store.
North Dakota is the No. 1 state for beer consumption per capita, a recent report shows. Residents drank 43.3 gallons of beer on average in 2013, topping the ranking for the second straight year.
Aim is to collect 250,000 pounds to fight hunger
FARGO, N.D. – The state’s agriculture commissioner challenged gardeners across North Dakota on Tuesday to grow 250,000 pounds of produce for those in need.
Doug Goehring said he wants the Hunger Free ND Garden Project, now in its fifth season, to surpass previous donation records and help curb food insecurity across the state.

FARGO, N.D. – Stacie Urbach wants a career in the skies.

“It’s always kind of seen as a man’s world,” Urbach admitted.
An increasing number of women like Urbach who love the adrenaline of flying are bucking that trend.
