    MINOT, ND - Organizers of the Norsk Hostfest are searching for a another main stage act following word today that Huey Lewis & The News are cancelling the remainder of the tour dates in 2018. Lewis posted a message on his website today stating that he has developed hear problems which makes it difficult to sing. Lewis says doctors believe he has Meniere's disease and have agreed that he can't perform until he improves.

    Huey Lewis & The News were scheduled to perform at Hostfest on September 28th. Hostfest is scheduled for September 26th - 29th at the State Fair Center in Minot. Tickets go on sale May 17th.

     STANLEY, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota landowners have many questions about wind development as residents in the northwest corner of the state see an increase in wind farm proposals. The Bismarck Tribune reports that the Northwest Landowners Association hosted about 160 people Thursday at an informational expo in Stanley to educate property owners affected by energy development.
 
     Chairman Troy Coons says the association continues to get inquiries about oil, gas and pipeline projects. He says more association members have also been approached about wind farms. Republican Sen. David Rust says the association has a wind farm north of Tioga, with two more proposed in Williams, Divide and Burke counties.
 
     State legislators have ongoing wind development studies that include looking at the impact wind energy has on the environment.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A Burleigh County sheriff's deputy is accused of stealing methamphetamine and cell phones from the Metro Area Task Force. A judge has set bond at $2,500 cash for 31-year-old Kerry Komrosky, who is charged with three felonies and a misdemeanor. The Bismarck Tribune reports Komrosky has resigned from the department.
 
     Sheriff Pat Heinert says it wasn't easy to arrest one of their own. Heinert says he's not sure how Komrosky got the pound of meth and 13 cell phones. He says deputies can't get into the evidence rooms because there are designated personnel that transfer evidence into storage. Komrosky was hired by Burleigh County five years ago. It was not immediately clear if he has hired an attorney.

    WASHINGTON - As the April 17th tax-filing deadline nears, many taxpayers may rush to finish their tax returns or find that extra time is needed to get them done. The IRS recommends that taxpayers request a filing extension if they need one.

    Tax preparers say mistakes can happen when hurrying to file a tax return by the due date, which can mean longer processing times and possible tax refund delays. Officials say electronic filing is the best way to avoid common mistakes; it is also the most accurate way to file a tax return. The IRS estimates that about 70 percent of taxpayers can file their tax return at no charge by using IRS Free File software.

     HOUSTON (AP) - The number of rigs exploring for oil and natural gas in the U.S. increased by five this week to 1,008. At this time a year ago there were 847 active rigs. Houston oilfield services company Baker Hughes reported today that 815 rigs drilled for oil this week and 192 for gas. One was listed as miscellaneous.
