An elderly Grand Forks man died after a boating mishap on Devils Lake...

     DEVILS LAKE, N.D. (AP) - An elderly Grand Forks man died after a boating mishap on Devils Lake. Ramsey County Sheriff Steve Nelson tells KFGO radio that the man was launching a boat Monday afternoon when the boat floated off the trailer and the wind began to push it away from shore. The man jumped into the water and attempted to swim to the boat but tired and went under the water. A bystander got the man to shore, but he died at a Devils Lake hospital. His name wasn't immediately released.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A North Dakota lawmaker is asking the state Highway Patrol to disclose the costs of providing security for the governor, lieutenant governor and their families. The North Dakota Legislative Council asked for the information today on behalf of House Minority Leader Corey Mock of Grand Forks. The Associated Press obtained the inquiry through an open records request.
 
     The inquiry follows an audit released in June that Gov. Doug Burgum, Lt. Gov. Brent Sanford, office staff and first lady Kathryn Helgaas Burgum used state airplanes for questionable purposes including commuting to homes outside the state capital.
 
     Auditors did not disclose the costs of providing security for the governor's office because they say those records are protected by state law. The Legislative Council, which is the Legislature's research arm, says the records are not protected from disclosure.

     BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - A conservation group claims a Trump administration committee reviewing royalty payments on fossil fuels from public lands is stacked with industry supporters who conduct some meetings in secret. In a lawsuit filed today in Montana, the Western Organization of Resource Council asked a federal judge to disband the Royalty Policy Committee and strike down its recommendations. Interior Department spokeswoman Heather Swift says it's inaccurate to suggest the committee is industry dominated.

    BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - John Walstad, the North Dakota Legislature's former top lawyer who spent more than three decades drafting bills for lawmakers, has died. Waltstad's wife, Jenne, says he died from lung cancer Sunday night in Bismarck.  He was 66.
 
     Walstad retired two years ago. He worked for the non-partisan legislative research agency for 35 years and served as its legal division director for nearly five of those years. Walstad was known as a dapper dresser and for his dry humor, which often lightened intense legislative hearings.
 
     Walstad attended North Dakota State University for two years and received a history degree from Minot State University. He received a law degree in 1978 from the University of North Dakota.
