    UNDATED - It's time to help grow your community again! Last year, 51 rural organizations across North Dakota received donations through America's Farmers Grow CommunitiesSM, sponsored by the Monsanto Fund. Now for the fourth consecutive year, farmers can sign up for the chance to win a $2,500 donation for their favorite local nonprofit organization. In North Dakota, 34 counties are eligible to receive donations.
 
    There's a way for everyone to get involved! Rural community members can suggest an idea or initiative
that needs funding in their local community by "planting" their ideas at www.GrowCommunities.com. Eligible farmers can then review the ideas and consider them in their application.
 
    America's Farmers Grow Communities is sponsored by the Monsanto Fund, to support local farming communities. The program, which launched in 2010, allows farmers to enter to win $2,500 for their favorite community nonprofit organization. This year, the program expands to 18 new counties, for a total of 1,289 eligible counties across the nation. One winner will be selected in each of the eligible counties in 39 states.
 
    Now through November 30th, eligible farmers can enter online, and rural community members can submit their ideas at www.GrowCommunities.com or by calling 1-877-267-3332.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Authorities say a horse found dead near Enderlin shortly after the opening day of deer season likely wasn't shot as first suspected.  Cass County officials say an investigation by the North Dakota Stockmen's Association revealed a 3-inch puncture wound too shallow to be from a gunshot.  Investigators believe the horse ran into something after being chased by a predator and punctured its own neck.
 
     The horse was discovered three days after the deer season opened, lying dead in a small pond with a wound that looked like a shot through the neck.  The horse's owner, Kim Damsgard of Cooperstown, tells The Forum newspaper she was relieved to hear the case was not based on a hunting mishap, or in malice.
