     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - A Minot woman accused of using drugs around children has been sentenced to two years of supervised probation. The Minot Daily News reports that 40-year-old Harmony Cornelius pleaded guilty to felony child endangerment and possession of drugs.

    Authorities say a 4-year-old boy and 1-year-old girl were present when officers found drugs and drug paraphernalia in a Minot apartment. Cornelius told police she smoked methamphetamine the previous day when children were present. Judge Gary Lee ordered Cornelius to obtain a chemical dependency evaluation and to pay $1,100 in court costs.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota natural gas production hit another record in March even as oil production dropped, illustrating the need for more gas infrastructure.

    The Mineral Resources Department reports the state produced more than 2.1 billion cubic feet per day of natural gas, with companies flaring about 12 percent. Flaring is considered wasteful, and the state restricts it.

    North Dakota Pipeline Authority Director Justin Kringstad tells The Bismarck Tribune that gas production is expected to exceed processing capacity beginning this summer until projects under construction start to come online.

    The Public Service Commission granted approval Tuesday for Oneok to proceed with the Demicks Lake natural gas processing plant in McKenzie County. It's one of five such plants under development in North Dakota. It's expected to be complete late next year.

    ARLINGTON, VA - Giselle "Gigi" Wilz, a member of the North Dakota National Guard, was promoted to the rank of major general today at Arlington Hall Station, Arlington, Virginia. Maj. Gen. Glenn A. Bramhall, commander of the 263rd Army Air and Missile Defense Command presided over the ceremony by introducing Wilz and rendering remarks about her career.  

    U.S. Senator Heidi Heitkamp, retired Lt. Col. Davina French and retired Maj. Gary Wilz also assisted during the ceremony, while Maj. Gen. William A. Hall, special assistant to the director, Army National Guard for logistics, acquisition, installation and environment; administered the oath of office.

    Later during the ceremony, Heitkamp presented Wilz a U.S. flag, which had been flown over the U.S. Capitol building. Brig. Gen. Bob Becklund, the deputy adjutant general for the North Dakota National Guard, presented Wilz with a certificate of congratulations from North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum.

    "I hope that I am doing the right thing for those who follow by being a role model and breaking down barriers; because it is not about being the first, but ensuring that you are not the last that counts," Wilz said. "I have had great mentors that have told me just to take care of people because the world is about relationships. Take care of the Soldiers and Airmen who serve under you, and your career will go well."

    Wilz enlisted in the N.D. Army National Guard in 1983 and was commissioned as a second lieutenant in 1986 at age 19, becoming one of the youngest officers in the organization. During her 35-year career, she has served with the 136th Quartermaster Battalion, the 164th Engineer Battalion, the 141st Maneuver Enhancement Brigade (MEB) and Joint Force Headquarters. She has held a variety of leadership positions within the North Dakota National Guard, from platoon leader to the Army Component chief of staff.

    Wilz is credited with several overseas deployments. In 1990, she served with the 132nd Quartermaster Company in Operation Desert Storm/Desert Shield. In 2009, she mobilized to Kosovo with the 141st MEB for a NATO international peacekeeping mission. From June 2015 until August 2017, she served as the commander for NATO Headquarters in Sarajevo and as the senior military representative for Camp Butmir, Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina. Recently, she served in Puerto Rico, leading National Guard forces, which were helping the island recover from the damage incurred by Hurricane Maria.

    Although Wilz is still a member of the North Dakota Army National Guard, she has been assigned as the special assistant to the director, Army National Guard, in Arlington, Virginia, since Sept. 2017.

    Wilz is the first female general officer from the North Dakota Army National Guard. Maj. Gen. Terry Scherling, an Air National Guard officer, who retired in 2009, was the first female general officer in the state's national guard.
