Milton James, Amelia, Chandler Elizabeth, Christelle Angel Marie and Eliza Ann have only been here a week, but their New Year's Eve arrivals mean they have already contributed to something -- a record year for births in Grand Forks.


The newborns are among the 1,655 babies born at Altru Health System's Family Birthing Center in 2012, a record for Altru that beats the old one of 1,576, set in 2010.
