Like any other art form, cake decorating reveals the personality of the artist: That’s especially true of recent award-winners from the Central Market cake department. The cake shaped like an attractive fanged young woman with bat wings, perched on the head of a dragon, was created by Roxanne Carr, who has a bit of a dark side. It won a gold medal in the Upper Midwest Bakery Association cake decorating contest, held recently at the Treasure Island Casino in Red Wing.
X By: Forum staff reports , INFORUM FARGO – A blizzard warning is still in effect until this evening for much of eastern North Dakota and west-central Minnesota, with snow and blowing snow creating hazardous driving conditions this morning. The National Weather Service predicted strong northwest winds, with gusts up to 45 mph, and snow continuing through the morning hours, gradually ending west to east this afternoon.
With spring and open water approaching fast, Becker County is moving forward on getting an aquatic invasive species expert on the job. On Tuesday, the county board agreed to put out a request for qualifications, which will allow the county to negotiate with a firm or individual, once it’s been established they are qualified to do the job. The county is hoping to partner with the City of Detroit Lakes or the Pelican River Watershed District on the position.
This may seem like a tough winter, especially compared to last year, when the area saw summer-type temperatures in March, and the ice came off the smaller lakes later in the month. But even with all the snow, this has not been a terrible winter for wildlife in the Becker County area, at least not yet. The DNR’s winter severity index through March 6 shows most of Becker County, including the Detroit Lakes area, with a winter severity index of between 61 and 70 points.

How hard did Minnesotans get hit by the great recession of 2008-2009? Just look at the amount of food provided to Minnesota through the U.S.
Next time you're pulled over by a Becker County deputy, smile pretty for the new digital camera in the squad car. And we won't even get into the lovely new taser you're going to feel if you decide to pick a fight. Becker county commissioners on Tuesday agreed to spend about $85,000 on a dozen Watchguard video cameras -- part of a system that includes computer software, servers, storage and a dozen wireless transmitters to be worn by deputies. The St.
There is still no resolution to the investigation of former Becker County Sheriff Tim Gordon. The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension finished its investigation in late November and turned it over to the Stearns County Attorney's Office for consideration of charges. But that office has yet to take any action.
Charges of second-degree murder and attempted second-degree murder were filed against a Detroit Lakes man Tuesday in Becker County District Court. Ronald Matthew Quiceno, 38, is accused of shooting Travis Dwayne Buckanaga, 23, of Detroit Lakes, "multiple" times in the torso during an argument early Saturday morning at a get-together at a mobile home park just north of Detroit Lakes. Buckanaga died a short time later in the Detroit Lakes hospital. He leaves behind a young daughter.
That bright red stripe that adorns the outside of the Detroit Lakes Burger King used to be lit with 150 feet of florescent light bulbs. Now it's lit courtesy of new LED bulbs. The roof used to be blue, now it's black, and much of the exterior has been redone in reddish earth tones. It's all part of a remodeling project that is part of a chain-wide effort to upgrade Burger King's look.
