FARGO - The wooden box was stained from age and covered with tattered canvas that gave no hint of the forgotten secrets it held. At first glance, Kerry Conlin thought the plywood box was covering electrical wiring in the abandoned house in Kathryn that she and her husband, Paul, had bought to rescue from ruin. When she opened the lid it quickly became apparent that the box had been carefully placed in a corner of a bedroom closet for safekeeping by someone long ago.
ATLANTA - Survey says ... bring on more Turnbergs on "Family Feud." Michelle Turnberg of Fargo and four of her cousins lived to feud another day after winning an episode of the game show that aired Tuesday. The women won $20,000 and advanced to play again in an episode to air at 4 p.m. Wednesday on KVRR. Both episodes were filmed on the same day last July in the show's Atlanta studio. Turnberg, a former local TV anchor as well as a former Forum columnist, led off Tuesday's episode by winning a face-off question against a member of the competing family.
FARGO - Another round of snow is expected today and Thursday across eastern North Dakota and northwestern Minnesota, with the potential for 2 to 4 inches and localized amounts of around 5 inches near heavier snow bands, the National Weather Service says.

Traveling south to Detroit Lakes, the Red Lake Falls boys' hockey team got to see the usual sights, such as the snow, frozen lakes and the Kent Freeman Arena ice. One sight the Eagles didn't have the opportunity to visit, or see much of for that matter, was the Laker net and goalie MacKenzie Steele. The Lakers throttled Red Lake Falls by limiting the visitors to just seven shots on net, while lambasting the Eagles' goal 60 times, in a convincing 5-0 win Thursday evening. All five of the Lakers goals came in the second period, where they had 25 shots on net, which proceeded 20 shots on goal
There's an aura surrounding the locker room for underclassmen. It's a place to keep one's head down and maybe, just maybe, a junior or senior will pass on a kind word about a performance. The underclassmen are just renting the locker room from upperclassmen. Not for the Detroit Lakes gymnastics team. Seventh- and eighth-graders own the locker room for the Lakers. Detroit Lakes has 19 seventh- and eighth-graders - eight more than any team with a top 20 average score in Minnesota Class 1A - to just two upperclassmen.
FARMINGTON, Minn. - Farmington senior goalie Austin Krause purposely scored a goal for the other team into his own net, then showed his middle finger in the direction of the coaching staff before leaving the ice in a Minnesota boys hockey game Tuesday against Chaska. The goal scored late in the third period tied the game 2-2. Chaska went on to win the game 3-2. Talk of the goal was rampant on Twitter and video of the incident is on YouTube. A Twitter account belonging to someone identifying himself as Chaska assistant hockey coach Sean Bloomfield confirmed some of the details.
FARGO - Every summer for the last 18 years, thousands of youth wrestlers flocked to the Fargodome for the USA Wrestling Junior and Cadet national tournaments. The immediate goal was to be an All-American. The long-term goal? You would be hard-pressed to find the kid not wanting to be an Olympic champion. "I think it's every young wrestler's goal," said North Dakota State head wrestling coach Roger Kish, who won both USA Greco-Roman and freestyle national titles as a kid.
The Perham area was pummeled with well over 12 inches of snow on Sunday, keeping many people snowed in at home and leading to school cancellations in Perham, New York Mills and throughout the region.

Roads, including stretches of Highway 10, 210 and Interstate 94, were closed for part of Sunday and overnight into Monday morning. A no travel advisory remained in effect for west central Minnesota into Monday afternoon.
The body of a 58-year-old missing woman from Fertile, Minn., was found Saturday a half-mile from her home, Polk County officials said Saturday. The Polk County Sheriff's Office received a report Saturday that Regina Larson had not been heard from since Wednesday, a release from the sheriff's office said. After a brief search, Larson's body was found in a ditch close to a grove of trees a ½-mile from her rural Fertile home, officials said.
