     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - Minot officials are considering taking action to boost the city's brand following a report that says the city needs a more coordinated approach to economic development. The Minot Daily News reports that International Economic Development Council President and CEO Jeffrey Finkle recently met with the Minot City Council about unifying the city's economic development efforts, such as the Minot Area Development Corp, downtown activities and tourism. Finkle says Minot should want their marketing messages to be consistent.

    The economic development council released a report in June, saying that Minot is threatened by inaction and lack of a strong voice. Minot resilience program manager John Zakian says the report recommended creating an umbrella organization over its economic development efforts. But he says it's unclear who would manage the umbrella organization.


     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A judge says six Native Americans who challenged North Dakota's voter identification law will be allowed to cast their ballots. The Bismarck Tribune reports that U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland signed an order Friday adopting the agreement, one day after he denied an emergency motion by the Spirit Lake tribe asking to block the state's voter ID law.

    The law requires voters to show ID with a residential street address, a provision American Indians say is not always evident on reservations.

    Tim Purdon, former U.S. attorney for North Dakota and part of the legal team, says that although the ruling applies to "only six people," they should be rewarded for having the courage to join the suit.

    Hovland said approving the motion would add chaos so close to the election.


     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A group of landowners from the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation is accusing a crude oil company of trespassing in a lawsuit that seeks compensation for a pipeline that crosses their land. The Bismarck Tribune reports that the former Mandan, Hidatsa and Arikara Nation chairman Tex Hall recently announced a federal lawsuit against Andeavor, formerly known as Tesoro. Andeavor recently merged with Marathon Petroleum.

    Hall says a pipeline that transports crude oil to the Marathon Petroleum Mandan Refinery crosses 64 acres within the reservation. He says 26 acres is owned by the tribe while the rest is owned by landowners or allottees. Hall says the company's easement agreement with the allottees expired in 2013. The lawsuit alleges the company is trespassing.


     BEMIDJI, Minn. (AP) - Twenty opponents of Enbridge Energy's planned Line 3 replacement have pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct in connection with an August protest. More than two dozen people were detained on Aug. 29 after they blocked an intersection in downtown Bemidji for nearly four hours. The opponents say the project poses unacceptable risks of oil spills in pristine areas of northern Minnesota. As part of their guilty plea, those charged agreed to not commit similar activity for six months.
