DETROIT LAKES, Minn. - Over the past decade, Kenny Chesney has taken country to the beach. Which made him a natural to headline WE Fest just outside Detroit Lakes. The singer closed out the three-day festival Saturday night with an energetic set of summer party anthems, like the openers "Beer in Mexico" and "Keg in the Closet." Anyone following the previous night's headliners, Keith Urban and Kid Rock, would have had their work cut out for them.
MOORHEAD - The city of Moorhead has started building a contingency dike in preparation for a second crest, and more could be built soon. Construction of a dike running along Rivershore Drive from north of Interstate 94 to south of Woodlawn Park began yesterday. Bob Zimmerman, city engineer, said the dikes are just a precaution and that it was important for residents to realize the city was "not abandoning them." The dikes would bring certain heights between 43.5 and 44 feet, but would average only 2 feet high off the ground.
