When Jim and Deanna Sinclair of Detroit Lakes accepted an invitation to a friend’s wedding in Sedona, Ariz., earlier this spring, they decided to make a full vacation out of the trip. With a little planning, they decided to visit Zion, Bryce Canyon and the Grand Canyon national parks in Utah and Arizona during a week-long visit. “I figured if we can incorporate these other things in there and then end up at the wedding, that would make two sides to the trip,” Deanna said.

Fire Crews are battling a large elevator fire in Lake Park tonight. The cause of the fire is yet unknown and a witness said it started around 7 p.m., according to WDAY TV. Flames at one point were seen shooting an estimated 30 feet in the air. Lake Park City Clerk Lonnie Neuner says the elevator has been empty for about two decades. Multiple fire agencies from around the region have been called in to help fight the fire. As of 9:00 Monday, the fire is still burning inside the elevator. Once the fire is out, a crew will tear it down with a back hoe.

The 2014 Ojibwe Forest Rally was bigger and better than ever, according to race chairman Erick Nelson. There were vastly more spectators this year, he said. And although there were fewer cars entered, more cars finished the entire race this year than in previous years. Both conditions combined to make a very happy race chairman. “We’ve had people writing in, thanking us for bringing (the race) to Detroit Lakes so they could see the race closer to town,” Nelson said. “We feel pretty good about it.
