Supporters of changing the North Dakota Constitution to explicitly bar non-U.S. citizens from voting have gathered enough signatures to get it on the ballot....

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Supporters of changing the North Dakota Constitution to explicitly bar non-U.S. citizens from voting have gathered enough signatures to get it on the ballot. The amendment's supporters needed almost 27,000 signatures from voters to put the measure on the November ballot. Secretary of State Al Jaeger announced today that more than 32,000 were accepted.
 
     Gary Emineth, a state Senate candidate in Bismarck, submitted more than 35,000 signatures to the secretary of state's office last month for review. The state constitution already defines a voter as a U.S. citizen. But Emineth says the wording is "ambiguous" and another section is proposed for clarity.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A Fort Totten man serving life in prison for a killing on the Spirit Lake Indian Reservation two years ago has lost an appeal. Dallas Thundershield was convicted of fatally stabbing 52-year-old Richard DeMarce in the heart on April 9, 2016, and critically injuring another man. Authorities said he used his vehicle, his booted foot and a knife as weapons during a fight.
 
     Thundershield appealed to the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, arguing that evidence in the case was insufficient and that the district court erred by allowing evidence of a prior conviction in tribal court. Appeals court judges rejected the arguments, saying in part that "the evidence against Thundershield was overwhelming on all counts."

     NEW TOWN, N.D. (AP) - The family of an American Indian woman who went missing in North Dakota for nine months before her body was found in a lake wants to help develop a comprehensive missing person protocol for tribes.
 
     Thirty-two-year-old Olivia Lone Bear went missing on the Fort Berthold Reservation last October. Her body was found earlier this month in a pickup truck pulled from Lake Sakakawea. The FBI is investigating what happened to the mother of five children.
 
     Brother Matthew Lone Bear says it's difficult in Indian Country to launch a missing person investigation. The family wants to help streamline the process.
 
     North Dakota Indian Affairs Commissioner Scott Davis tells the Bismarck Tribune that his office plans to discuss drafting missing person guidelines for tribes and other ways to improve searches.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - The former general manager of an events center in Fargo is accused of embezzling from the business. The Cass County State Attorney's Office has charged Richard Pallay with felony theft. Pallay was the first general manager of Sanctuary Events Center developed by Gov. Doug Burgum's Kilbourne Group. KFGO says he was fired in January. Police say Pallay embezzled nearly $17,000 while Sanctuary management puts the amount at more than $19,000. Authorities say Pallay used the money for gambling and entertainment.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum is clarifying remarks he made to President Donald Trump about the rate of addiction among the state's inmates. Trump met with some governors and state attorneys general in New Jersey Thursday to discuss prison reform.
 
     Burgum told Trump that "100 percent of the women" and "85 percent of men" in North Dakota's prison system have the "disease of addiction." Burgum spokesman Mike Nowatzki says the Republican governor meant to say that in some months, all women and up to 85 percent of men who enter the prison system suffer from addiction. Nowatzki says a corrected statement is being sent to the White House. Nowatzki did not know the actual percentage of inmates who suffer from some form of addiction.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Gov. Doug Burgum has appointed Bismarck attorney and former North Dakota solicitor general Doug Bahr to a judgeship in the South Central Judicial District. Bahr succeeds the retired Sonna Anderson. He begins his duties Sept. 1, with his chambers based in Bismarck.
 
     Bahr has nearly three decades of experience in the legal realm, including more than 25 years in state government. He's currently with a private law firm. He holds a law degree from the University of South Dakota. The South Central Judicial District includes nine counties, including Burleigh and Morton.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A reprieve from drought this summer in North Dakota is good not only for farmers but also duck hunters. The Game and Fish Department says duck broods in the state are up 37 percent from last year.
 
     The outlook wasn't so bright last spring, when a department survey estimated the number of breeding ducks was down 5 percent from 2017 due mainly to the deterioration of wetlands during last summer's drought. But Mike Szymanski with Game and Fish says most of the state received abundant rainfall from late May through early July.
 
     The amount of water available to ducks in the state is up 11 percent from 2017. Last summer, the amount was down 38 percent from the previous year, as smaller, seasonal wetlands dried up during the drought.
