A Cavalier man has died in an off-highway vehicle crash in northeastern North Dakota....

     CAVALIER, N.D. (AP) - A Cavalier man has died in an off-highway vehicle crash in northeastern North Dakota. The North Dakota Highway Patrol says 55-year-old Dean Becker was driving the Polaris four-wheeler on Friday night northwest of Cavalier when the vehicle left the road and went into the ditch. The four-wheeler went over rough ground, and Becker was thrown. He died at the scene. The patrol says Becker was not wearing a helmet. The crash remains under investigation.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Efforts to stabilize transit in the Bismarck area have resulted in reduced service that has left some residents with disabilities without a ride. Some riders have dropped from routes because they live outside city boundaries while others are experiencing long wait times. Some transit users argue that the issues have been ongoing.
 
     The Bismarck Tribune reports that the Bis-Man Transit Board and Bismarck City Commission have proposed measures to resolve paratransit issues in the coming months, but some are skeptical of real change. Sheryl Stradinger is the mother of two daughters with disabilities. She said she's doing her best to transport her daughter, but that it's a challenge.
 
     Steve Heydt is the president of the Bis-Man Transit Board. He says the board is continuing to look for solutions for the lost service and has formed a committee to help.

     GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - A North Dakota National Guard unit that was called to duty in the nation's capital has been formally welcomed home. A ceremony was held Sunday for members of the 1st Battalion of the 188th Air Defense Artillery Regiment. More than 200 soldiers recently returned from nearly a year of service helping provide security for Washington, D.C.
 
     More than 30 soldiers volunteered to remain on the mission with a South Carolina-based unit. They're expected home later this year.
 
     The unit is based in Grand Forks with detachments in Fargo and Bismarck. It has members from communities across North Dakota and also in Minnesota, Wisconsin, California and Nebraska. It served a similar mission in 2013 and 2014.

     WAHPETON, N.D. (AP) - A North Dakota zoo will soon have two more endangered animals. The Wahpeton Daily News reports that the southern white rhinoceroses will be seen at the Chahinkapa Zoo in Wahpeton as soon as April 28. Both animals are males and are between the ages of 3 and 4. The zoo is putting its finishing touches on the rhinoceroses' African Habitat. Zoo Curator Tom Schmaltz anticipates the zoo to hold a contest to name them sometime this spring.
 
     A collaborative effort to ensure the conservation of the rhinoceroses has been ongoing. Chahinkapa Zoo teamed with organizations including the Center for the Conservation of Tropical Ungulates in Punta Gorda, Florida and the Species Survival Plan, a branch of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums.
 
     Southern white rhinoceros are found in countries such as Botswana, South Africa, and Zimbabwe.
