KHRT ND NEWS EVENING 1600 - 07132018

 

Grand Forks police have released the name of a woman who died in a swimming pool.
 Authorities on Friday identified the victim as 61-year-old Maggie Berlin of Grand Forks.
 Berlin was found unresponsive in an above-ground swimming pool at a home on the north side of Grand Forks on Wednesday night.
  Crews tried to revive the woman before she was taken to a Grand Forks hospital, but she died.
 Police say the investigation continues.

 A hospital in the western part of North Dakota is treating victims of a tornado that recently ripped through the area days after the $76 million facility opened.
 McKenzie County Healthcare Systems opened the Watford City hospital July 1. The hospital is equipped with 24 inpatient rooms and nine rooms in the emergency department.
 More than two dozen people were brought to the hospital less than an hour after an EF2 tornado touched down in an RV park in the oil patch city on Tuesday. The tornado resulted in the death of a newborn baby.
 Hospital Chief Administrative Officer Mike Curtis says it would have been "near impossible" to treat the 26 people seeking help for their injuries without the new hospital.

 Wheat production in North Dakota this year is expected to be up substantially over 2017.
  The Agriculture Department's latest estimates put North Dakota spring wheat production at 312 million bushels, up 50 percent from last year. Both acres and average yield are expected to be up.
 Durum wheat production is projected to be up 31 percent, to 37.8 million bushels. Winter wheat production is forecast at 3.08 million bushels, up 22 percent.
  Barley and oat production also is expected to be up in the state.

Three environmental groups are suing North Dakota over an air quality permit that allows construction of an $800 million oil refinery about 3 miles from Theodore Roosevelt National Park. National Parks Conservation Association, the Environmental Law and Policy Center and the Dakota Resource Council filed the lawsuit in state court on Thursday. State Air Quality Director Terry O'Clair says he stands behind the "very thorough review" of the project.

Republican U.S. Rep. Kevin Cramer has released a 60-second spot that features President Donald Trump's support of him over Sen. Heidi Heitkamp in a race critical for control of the Senate. The television ad began airing Friday statewide. It features remarks Trump made at a campaign rally last month in Fargo, where he criticized Heitkamp for voting with her party leadership and against his agenda, including tax cuts he signed into law.
 
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Democratic Sen. Heidi Heitkamp continues to hold a fundraising advantage over Rep. Kevin Cramer, her Republican challenger.
  Heitkamp's campaign earlier this week released partial figures ahead of the Federal Election Commission's Sunday deadline. Heitkamp says she raised more than $1.9 million in the second quarter for her re-election bid, and has $5.2 million cash on hand.
 Cramer's campaign on Friday says he raised more than $1.5 million during the reporting period, and has more than $2.4 million in the bank.
  The North Dakota race is seen as critical for control of the closely divided Senate.

A crowdfunding campaign has raised more than $13,000 for a couple who lost their week-old baby when a tornado hit a North Dakota town............

KHRT NEWS AFTERNOON EDITION WEDNESDAY - 07/11/2018 - 1200

 A crowdfunding campaign has raised more than $13,000 for a couple who lost their week-old baby when a tornado hit a North Dakota town.
  McKenzie County Sheriff Gary Schwartzenberger says the boy died after the storm flipped his family's trailer Tuesday morning at an RV park in Watford City. The baby's name has not been released. Schwartzenberger reported to Gov. Doug Burgum and other officials late Tuesday that the boy was the son of Marisa Reber and Will Maguire.
  A GoFundMe account set up for the couple shows more than 225 people had donated as of early Wednesday.
 The National Weather Service said an EF2 tornado hit Watford City with wind speeds reaching 127 mph (200 kph).
  More than two dozen other people were injured.

 A teacher facing drug and child endangerment charges in McKenzie County must surrender her state teaching license as part of a deal with prosecutors to avoid trial.
  Regie Hill was charged in February after sheriff's deputies said they found drugs and related items in reach of Hill's children in her home. Hill at the time was a science teacher in Alexander.
 Superintendent Leslie Bieber tells that Hill resigned in March.
   Under Hill's deal with prosecutors, the criminal charges against her will be dismissed if she stays out of trouble for the next 1  1/2 years, submits to random drug testing, surrenders her state teaching license and testifies in another criminal case.

 North Dakota's attorney general is suing the developer of the Dakota Access oil pipeline over agricultural land the company owns in violation of a state law banning large corporations from owning farmland. He wants the court to fine the company $25,000 and order it to sell the land. In a separate case, an American Indian activist accused of starting a riot on a portion of the land during protests against the pipeline is trying to use the state's lawsuit in his defense.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sen. Heidi Heitkamp and Republican challenger Rep. Kevin Cramer have agreed to at least three debates in the month leading up to the November election. Two of the debates are scheduled in Fargo, and another in Bismarck. The Heitkamp-Cramer matchup is one of the toughest Senate races in the U.S., with Republicans hoping to hold onto a razor-thin majority.

Highway fatalities in North Dakota during the first half of the year were the lowest in eight YEARS.   The state Transportation Department's Safety Division says there were 39 motor vehicle fatalities in the state through June 30, down from 54 during the same period last year.
  It was the lowest number since 2010, when there also were 39 fatalities in the first six months. Safety Division Director Karin Mongeon says the drop from last year is encouraging, but the number is still too high. State officials earlier this year launched a "Vision Zero" strategy to try to reduce crash injuries and fatalities.

Supporters of legalizing recreational marijuana in North Dakota have submitted petition signatures they hope will get a measure on the November general election ballot.
     Proponents on Monday submitted nearly 19,000 signatures to the secretary of state's office. About 13,500 valid signatures are needed to put the matter to a statewide vote. The secretary of state's office will be making that determination in the next month.
     The proposal seeks to legalize marijuana for people 21 and older and also seal the records of anyone convicted of a marijuana-related crime that would be made legal under the measure. Supporters of legalizing recreational marijuana failed on a petition drive in 2016. That same year, North Dakota voters approved medical marijuana. The state Health Department is working on setting up a system for the drug.
