Beulah nearing decision on proposed 400-bed work camp

(Information in the following story is from: Bismarck Tribune, http://www.bismarcktribune.com)

BEULAH, N.D. (AP) A proposed 400-bed work camp in Beulah on hold for more than a month should be decided upon at Monday's city meeting.

The Bismarck Tribune reports that the city has been wrestling with an application from an oil patch work camp operator who wants to move empty units from Tioga for hundreds of workers who will be building a massive urea fertilizer plant nearby.

The Capital Lodge application has been on hold as city council members work through citizen objections and write operating conditions to satisfy worries of crime, traffic and stress on city services. Residents say they don't mind the man camp but they don't want it across from residential housing in city limits as proposed.

No other proposed location for the camp is on the table.

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) North Dakota Governor Jack Dalrymple (DAHL'-rimp-ul) has directed state government agencies and offices to fly the U.S. and North Dakota flags at half-staff from sunrise to sunset on Sunday.

The gesture is in observance of National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Day, which honors the country's fire and emergency services personnel and remembers those who have died in the line of duty.

Dalrymple says lowering the flags honors the heroes for their distinguished service and devotion to duty and remembers those who gave their lives to save and protect their fellow citizens.

The governor also proclaimed this coming week Fire Prevention Week to promote the importance of fire prevention and safety and recognize North Dakota's firefighters for their service and dedication.

Mom charged in son's starvation death gets 25 years

MINOT, N.D. (AP) A judge has sentenced a northwest North Dakota woman to 25 years in prison for her teenage son's starvation death after a plea agreement.

Thirty-six-year-old Jessica Jensen of Kenmare pleaded guilty to two charges Friday: murder and child neglect or abuse.

She had reached a plea deal in July that called for her to spend 16 years in prison for the 2014 death of 13-year-old Aidan Bossingham. But District Judge Gary Lee rejected the agreement, citing the "severity of the charges."

Lee sentenced Jensen to the longer prison term Friday. He said he was relieved that no jury would have to view the photos he saw of the boy's 21-pound body after his death.

KXMC-TV reports that Jensen acknowledged not getting proper medical treatment that would have saved Aidan's life.

(Information in the following story is from: KFGO-AM, http://www.kfgo.com)

FARGO, N.D. (AP) Bail for a Bismarck man who was shot by a Fargo police officer after he allegedly pointed a replica gun at the officer has been set at $100,000.

Karmen Redshirt is charged with terrorizing, reckless endangerment and refusing to stop for police. He has not entered a plea.

Friday's arraignment hearing was held in a Fargo hospital room. KFGO radio reports that Redshirt swore during the hearing and tried to argue with the judge. The defendant was handcuffed and shackled to a hospital bed.

Redshirt was driving a stolen car on the night he was shot. His wife was in the car and spent about a day in jail.

Redshirt's public defender could not be reached for comment after working hours on Friday.


Bus driver hurt in crash with semitrailers near Kindred dies

FARGO, N.D. (AP) The driver of a school bus involved in a crash with three semitrailers in dense fog at an intersection near Kindred a week ago has died.

Fargo's Boulger Funeral Home confirmed to The Associated Press that Cathy Jostad died early Friday and said funeral arrangements were pending.

Jostad had both of her legs amputated after the crash Sept. 25.

None of the 32 students aboard the bus was seriously injured in the crash, but Jostad was pinned in the wreckage and it took rescue crews more than half an hour to free her and take her to a Fargo hospital.

State School Superintendent Kirsten Baesler issued a statement saying she was "deeply saddened" by Jostad's death.


UND drone students help with ongoing polar bear project

FARGO, N.D. (AP) Scientists from the American Museum of Natural History who have spent five decades studying polar bears in far northern Manitoba had help this past summer from an unmanned aircraft team from the University of North Dakota.

Museum research and senior project scientist Robert Rockwell says the team was the first to gain permits to develop drone technology in a Canadian national park. The group conducted nearly 90 test flights for the so-called Hudson Bay Project.

The drones were used to study the overabundant geese in the region, their impact on the tundra landscape and the impacts of their nests being invaded by hungry polar bears.

The 5-pound Styrofoam flyer was launched via catapult and took phots at one-second intervals that were stitched together to show a picture of the ground.

The state made 410 licenses available in three hunting units this fall, up from 250 licenses in only one unit last year. About 6,500 people applied for a license this year about 16 people for every one license available.

Senate panel votes to lift 40-year-old US ban on oil exports

WASHINGTON (AP) The Senate Banking Committee has endorsed a bill to lift the four-decade-old ban on crude oil exports, the latest sign of congressional support for legislation that President Barack Obama opposes.

The banking panel endorsed the bill, 13-9, on Thursday, on a largely party-line vote. Sen. Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota sponsored the bill and was the only Democrat to support it.

Heitkamp said the bill would lower or stabilize gas prices, support jobs and increase U.S. influence abroad. Despite the largely partisan committee vote, Heitkamp said she is optimistic that Senate Democrats will support efforts to lift the export ban. The ban was imposed in the 1970s amid an energy shortage.

The House Energy and Commerce endorsed a similar bill last month.

The White House said it opposes both bills.

State gets extension on plan to meet new CO2 standards

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) The federal agency mandating a significant reduction in carbon dioxide emissions from coal-fueled power plants in North Dakota is giving the state more time to submit an implementation plan.

North Dakota is among 16 states that will have to reduce carbon dioxide emissions the most under EPA rules unveiled in August by President Barack Obama. Under the new standards, North Dakota must cut its emission rate almost 45 percent by 2030.

State officials have said they're considering a legal fight.
