     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Broadcasting personality Ed Schultz, whose career took him from quarterbacking at a Minnesota college to national radio and television, has died. He was 64.

    His son, David Schultz, tells The Associated Press that his father died of natural causes Thursday morning in Washington, D.C., where he anchored "News with Ed Schultz" on RT America, formerly Russia Today. Schultz also hosted "The Ed Show" on MSNBC from 2009 to 2015.

    Schultz was a standout quarterback at Minnesota State University-Moorhead in the 1970s. He went on to a career as a sportscaster at TV and radio stations in the area around Moorhead, Minnesota, and Fargo, North Dakota. He later became a conservative radio talk show host. But he was a fiery liberal by the time he took his show into national syndication in 2004.

     AMHERST, S.D. (AP) - The National Transportation Safety Board says a fatigue crack caused last year's rupture of the Keystone oil pipeline in South Dakota.

    The NTSB said in a report released Thursday that the crack likely originated from mechanical damage to the pipe exterior caused by a metal-tracked vehicle during installation. Investigators say the crack grew to a "critical size" and resulted in the Nov. 16 rupture near Amherst.

    An estimated 5,000 barrels of oil spilled from the TransCanada Corp. pipeline between the Ludden, North Dakota, and Ferney, South Dakota, pump stations. There were no injuries associated with the incident.

    TransCanada spokesman Matthew John says the impacted property has been cleaned up and the pipeline has returned to service. John says the company is committed to achieving its goal of "zero incidents."

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's Health Department is warning residents to avoid blue-green algae that can develop in bodies of water. Hot summer weather contributes to the production of the algae that's also known as cyanobacteria. People and animals who ingest affected water can get sick and even die. There's no known antidote for toxins blue-green algae can produce.

    People are urged to avoid water that looks discolored or scummy or has a foul odor. Mike Ell of the department's Division of Water Quality says algae blooms are most common in the late summer in North Dakota.

     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - Ward County is preparing to use produced water from the oil field to help control dust on some gravel roads. The Minot Daily News reports that the Ward County Commission approved Highway Engineer Dana Larsen's request Tuesday to purchase a brine storage tank and distribution equipment.
 
    The county is looking to obtain produced water from a neighboring county's well that the state Health Department says has safe water when used appropriately. Larsen hopes to get the brine facilities in place this year so that the county could start using the produced water next year.

     NEW YORK (AP) - President Donald Trump's campaign-style rallies have found a receptive audience at Fox News Channel. Unlike the other cable news networks, Fox often carries his speeches live and in their entirety.

    Five times in the past few weeks, Fox has set aside its usual prime-time programming to air the president speaking live to supporters at events in South Carolina, Minnesota, North Dakota, West Virginia and Montana.

    Critics say Fox is essentially giving Trump free access to his supporters in a midterm election year. Fox counters that it is simply covering newsworthy events. The rallies have also been good for ratings.
