If life is a highway, then Stew Magnuson knows how to live. And so do the countless souls he encountered while writing his latest book, “The Last American Highway: A Journey Through Time Down U.S. Route 83: The Dakotas.” Magnuson, an award-winning author and journalist now based in Arlington, Va., said he took the North and South Dakota portion of the trip in September 2009, when he traveled from the highway’s origins in North Dakota to its intersection with Interstate 70 in Kansas.

After years of questions, Red Green fans can finally learn why their favorite Canadian handyman uses duct tape for everything. Steve Smith, perhaps better known as Red Green, said that part of his "How To Do Everything" Tour includes, for the first time, an explanation of why he fixes everything with duct tape -- something that has become part of his trademark.

TABOR -- The cedars of Lebanon may have been a gift fit for King Solomon, but for some South Dakota landowners, the plants are mostly a nuisance. That’s why members of Bon Homme Colony were trying to clear out some of those cedars with a controlled burn on Friday, according to Tabor Volunteer Fire Chief Ken Carda. “They’re getting fairly well overgrown with cedar trees,” Carda said of the area near the Missouri River. “They need to clear them off so the cattle have more area to graze.” The controlled fire, however, soon spread, and became out of control.
