     WYNDMERE, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota authorities say a man's truck is destroyed after roughly $2,800 worth of fireworks ignited in his pickup bed as he drove on the highway near Wyndmere. The Richland County Sheriff's Office says 67-year-old Jorgen Nokleberg, of Leonard, was driving Wednesday on Highway 18 when the load of fireworks started going off. They sparked several small grass fires along the highway, but Nokleberg received only minor injuries. The sheriff's office says the fire is being investigated.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota will begin accepting applications to open medical marijuana dispensaries in Bismarck and Fargo next week. The North Dakota Department of Health said Monday it will begin taking applications July 10 as it begins a phased-in approach to allowing dispensaries in eight regions throughout the state. The Bismarck Tribune reports the regions besides Bismarck and Fargo are Devils Lake, Dickinson, Grand Forks, Jamestown, Minot and Williston. All eight regions are expected to be allowed to apply for dispensaries by June 30, 2019. Applications for medical marijuana patients and caregivers are expected to be available in late October.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Tax collections in North Dakota this year have been exceeding economic estimates, but the state's treasurer is still urging caution. State Treasurer Kelly Schmidt told the Bismarck Tribune last week that General Fund revenues from biennium-to-date are more than 2 percent higher than projected. A Legislative Council report says surging oil and extraction tax revenue is 72 percent higher than what was forecast for June. But Schmidt cautions that the forecast from last year was a conservative one, and that "what goes up can go down."

    Joe Morrissette is the Office of Management and Budget's director. He says there's still forecasting left for the 2017-19 biennium. The Advisory Council on Revenue Forecasting will review preliminary figures from Moody's Analytics this month, with the new forecast to come in August.

     OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Business remains strong in nine Midwest and Plains states, but a new monthly survey suggests that growth is slowing as concerns about trade and tariffs increase. The region's overall economic index decreased to 61.8 in June from May's 67.3, but any score above 50 indicates growth.

    Creighton University economist Ernie Goss says the trade concerns and more interest rate increases are likely to slow the region's economy.

    The survey results are compiled into a collection of indexes ranging from zero to 100. Survey organizers say any score above 50 suggests growth in that factor. A score below that suggests decline. The survey covers Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma and South Dakota.
