This winter, find local favorites for sledding and fun in the snow.
Hills with decades of sledding history are blanketed with snow and ready for those young and old to take to a favorite winter activity — sledding. As the days slide into the midst of winter, families new to the area, or those with sledding on their list of adventures this season, have a few options when picking local sledding hills.

A man who went to KARE 11 earlier this summer with a supposed plot against he and his wife has now been accused with staging the entire thing, and faces criminal charges.
Residents of an Otsego townhome on Lachman Avenue said earlier this summer they had endured weeks of harassment, presumably from a neighbor who can't accept the fact that they're a mixed-race couple.

I know how it feels I was in a mixed relationship and have mixed children,” said one commenter. The Wright County …
