     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - A Minot man faces misdemeanor charges for a boating incident that killed a 10-year-old girl. The Minot Daily News reports 41-year-old Dean Bartsch was charged Wednesday with prohibited operation of personal watercraft. The charge carries a maximum penalty of 30 days in jail and a $1,500 fine. Authorities say Bartsch operated a Jet Ski without properly securing the vehicle's engine cutoff lanyard to himself.
     Haley Sundsbak died June 10 from injuries suffered the day before in a collision on Strawberry Lake. Sundsbak and another girl were on an inner tube being pulled by a boat. Bartsch's unmanned Jet Ski struck the inner tube shortly after he was thrown from the watercraft. The other girl suffered critical injuries, but survived.


     DEVILS LAKE, N.D. (AP) - Authorities have identified a Grand Forks man who died after a boating mishap on Devils Lake. The Ramsey County Sheriff's Office says 64-year-old Daniel Chrisholm swam after a boat that had drifted off the trailer as he was launching it Monday afternoon, and he went underwater. A bystander got him to shore, but he died at a Devils Lake hospital.

     WEST FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A West Fargo woman accused of drowning her newborn child in a bathtub has pleaded not guilty to charges including murder. Thirty-six-year-old Ginny Lubitz is accused of placing her baby face-down in about an inch of water on May 5, killing the child. Defense attorney Kevin McCabe declined comment after Wednesday's court hearing. Lubitz's bail has been set at $500,000. She's due back in court Oct. 10.


     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Republican Secretary of State Al Jaeger has turned in signatures to his own office to be placed on the November ballot as an independent candidate. Will Gardner beat Jaeger for the GOP endorsement for the seat but withdrew after news surfaced of a 2006 disorderly conduct conviction for peeping through windows at the North Dakota State University women's dorm.
     Jaeger needs 1,000 valid signatures to be placed on the ballot. He says he turned in more than 1,300 signatures today. His office is tasked with certifying the signatures. Jaeger says he will have no part in that process.
     The November ballot will not list a Republican candidate. Fargo Rep. Josh Boschee is the Democrat's endorsed candidate for the seat.

     JAMESTOWN, N.D. (AP) - A Stutsman County sheriff's deputy who made arrests in two large drug cases that were later dropped has resigned. Sheriff Chad Kaiser tells KFGO radio that Sgt. Matt Thom's resignation letter indicated he was quitting for personal reasons and that he was looking for employment outside of law enforcement. Kaiser says he doesn't know if the drug cases contributed to the decision. A home telephone listing for Thom couldn't be found.
     The drug busts in December and January on Interstate 94 resulted in four arrests and the seizure of nearly 700 pounds of marijuana. Charges were later dropped in both cases. Thom had been with the sheriff's department for nearly six years. He's being allowed to keep his K-9 partner.


     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A proposal to expand a natural gas processing plant in northwestern North Dakota aims to keep up with growing volumes of Bakken gas production and reduce wasteful flaring.
     The Bismarck Tribune reports that Kinder Morgan has filed an application with the state Public Service Commission to expand the Roosevelt Gas Plant in McKenzie County. It would be the sixth natural gas plant expansion or new plant under development in North Dakota.
     The expansion would add 150 million cubic feet per day of processing capacity at the plant. The proposal estimates the expansion will cost $150 million. Operations could begin by November 2019, pending regulatory approvals. The Public Service Commission will need to approve the expansion. A public hearing on the proposal hasn't been scheduled.

     JAMESTOWN, N.D. (AP) - Residents in the Dakotas are experiencing lower air quality and seeing some hazy skies because of the ongoing wildfires in the western part of the United States and Canada.
     The National Weather Service in Bismarck says those smoky skies will stick around heading into the weekend. Meteorologist Janine Vining says that could change when a weak cold front arrives Sunday or Monday.
     Vining tells KQDJ the low air quality will be coupled with some hot summer days heading into the weekend with estimates of up to 100 degrees in some parts of the state. Vining encourages individuals who may have breathing problems to limit their time outside with the current conditions. She says the smoke may also reduce driving visibility.
