    MINOT, ND - The Minot Police Department has received several reports of a fund raising scam attempt. Callers are reporting that an organization identifying itself as "Police Action Fund" is raising donations on behalf of the Minot Police Department.

    Police say no agreement exists between any fundraising organization and the Minot Police Department. Also, they do not solicit donations by phone for any reason.

    Officers say unless a person has actually suffered a financial loss from this scam attempt, there is no need to contact the police department. However anyone is welcome to contact the North Dakota Attorney General's Office, Consumer Protection Division at 1-800-472-2600 or on line at https://attorneygeneral.nd.gov/consumer-resources for further information and reporting on scams.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota regulators have approved an expansion project that aims to reduce natural gas flaring. The Bismarck Tribune reports that the North Dakota Public Service Commission approved the expansion of the Oneok Bear Creek natural gas processing plant on Wednesday.

    The plant has been operational since 2016, processing 80 million cubic feet (2.27 million cubic meters) of natural gas per day. It'll process natural gas gathered from local oil and gas wells, and natural gas liquids will be transported through a pipeline. Residue gas will be transferred to the Northern Border Pipeline.

    Commissioner Brian Kroshus says increasing natural gas processing capacity will help companies meet their targets.

    The expansion is one of five natural gas processing plant expansions or construction projects under development in the state.

    WASHINGTON, D.C. - Gov. Doug Burgum was in Washington D.C. on Thursday attending a meeting on trade and agricultural issues with President Donald Trump, Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue and other governors and congressional leaders at the White House.

    "We're deeply grateful to President Trump for hosting this productive discussion and his ongoing commitment to partner with the states," Burgum said. "North Dakota farmers and ranchers are among the most productive and technologically advanced on the planet, and it's refreshing to hear the President's passion for restoring fair trade and leveling the playing field so they can compete with anyone in the world."

    "We support a steady approach to negotiations with China and our NAFTA partners and encourage the administration to take appropriate steps to prevent or soften the impacts of retaliatory tariffs on North Dakota producers and improve market stability," Burgum added.

    Burgum emphasized the importance of a strong farm bill for North Dakota producers, especially coming off a year with historic drought that brought significant hardship to farmers and ranchers. He said he also appreciates the President's willingness to work on a path forward for the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) and to reconsider joining the Trans-Pacific Partnership to open export markets for U.S. producers.

    Burgum was one of three governors in the White House meeting, joining Gov. Kim Reynolds of Iowa and Gov. Pete Ricketts of Nebraska, U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer, National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow and about a dozen members of Congress including Sen. John Hoeven, R-N.D., chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee's agriculture subcommittee, and Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kan., chairman of the Senate Agriculture Committee.

      BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Students from Hankinson and Oakes took top honors in this year's National Archery in the Schools Program state tournament. The North Dakota Game and Fish Department reports that Oakes claimed top honors in the elementary and middle school divisions, and Hankinson won the high school division. Overall individual winners were Cheyne Meyer of Hankinson and Gracie Gunderson of Medina.

    A record 750 archers registered to compete in the tournament in Minot in late March, though only 600 made it to the event due to a snowstorm. Winning teams and the top 10 individuals qualify for the national tournament in May in Louisville, Kentucky.
