FARGO—A new app could help keep wood ticks away. The TickTracker app displays areas where others have spotted ticks, and users can also add where they've seen one of the bugs. If users get bitten by a tick, the app offers a helpful guide on how to pick them off. According to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, deer ticks — also known as blacklegged ticks — are the most common type of tick in this area. They stick to low-growing plants — they're most likely to be found on ankles or feet.
FARGO—The man accused of cutting a driver's neck, has officially been charged. 36-year old Aaron Knutson is facing Aggravated Assault with a Dangerous Weapon and terrorizing charges. Police say Knutson was picked up outside of the Northern early Saturday morning by two strangers in a car. They were giving him a ride home when an argument broke out, and police say Knutson cut Ethan Kensok's neck with a knife. Police say the best way to avoid situations like this, is to "not" give strangers rides.
