Headline: FARGO – Another restaurant has plans to secure a portion of the business in downtown Fargo.

Boss’ Pizza & Chicken plans to open by the New Year or not long after, majority owner Jeremy Seefeldt said on Friday, October 1st.

It’s in the old White Banner Uniform Shop building on Broadway 228.

“We had a lot of success in Grand Forks. Fargo obviously has a lot of the same people and the same stuff, except that it’s oversized,” said Seefeldt.

BISMARCK – Nearly 2,400 forest fires have burned more than 125,000 acres of land across North Dakota so far in 2021.

Some of the state’s largest forest fires have historically occurred in the fall, and depending on weather and human behavior, North Dakota could very likely have more acres burned in the coming months, State Forester Tom Claeys said.

“2021 could very well be a month with fires in North Dakota,” Claeys said. “That could be the future of what North Dakota looks like, depending on weather patterns, individual fire outbreaks and the behavior of people in the landscape.” The whole story here.
