GRAND FORKS -- Jacki Lund is an over-the-road care giver.

Not all of the time. She spends plenty of hours in her office at Grand Forks County Social Services, where she is one of nine foster care case managers.


But the job does require travel. For instance, the licensed social worker recently drove almost 1,200 miles, just about to all four state borders, in less than 36 hours -- to visit 16 children now placed in foster care.
