     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Three of North Dakota's larger cities have elected new mayors.
 
     In Bismarck, challenger Steve Bakken edged out incumbent Mayor Mike Seminary in Tuesday's election. Bakken is a former radio show host and the business development manager for an engineering company.
 
     In Minot, City Councilman Shaun Sipma beat two other candidates to take the mayor seat vacated by Chuck Barney, who decided not to seek re-election to pursue other interests. Sipma is a former TV journalist, an insurance agent and board secretary for the Farm Rescue nonprofit.
 
     In West Fargo, longtime Mayor Rich Mattern was unseated by Bernie Dardis. Dardis is a former CEO of a sign company who still works as a consultant.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Republican state Sen. Kelly Armstrong says he's not celebrating even though he breezed past two little-known opponents in North Dakota's U.S. House primary. The attorney from Dickinson and former head of the state GOP is vying to replace Rep. Kevin Cramer, who is running for the U.S. Senate seat held by Democrat Heidi Heitkamp.

    Armstrong easily defeated ex-Marine Tiffany Abentroth and former North Dakota State football player Paul Schaffner. State Sen. Tom Campbell also appeared on the ballot despite dropping out of the race.

    Armstrong says he is preparing for a November contest against Democrat Mac Schneider, a Grand Forks attorney who had no opposition in the primary. Armstrong says he and his campaign aren't taking anything for granted.

     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - A Ward County Jail inmate accused of breaking another inmate's jaw in two places during a fight over ramen noodles has been sentenced in state court. The Minot Daily News reports that 33-year-old Jesse Levi Jones, of Kenmare, was sentenced to time already served of 126 days and ordered to pay more than $2,000 for expenses. Jones pleaded guilty last week to misdemeanor assault.

    Court documents show that the incident happened after 26-year-old inmate David Pieper Jr. accused Jones of stealing seven ramen noodle packages and a bowl from Pieper's cell. Pieper was unable to talk about the fight at the time but gave a written account to investigators. Authorities say security cameras showed Jones punching Pieper.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's efforts to reduce the impact of wind development on wildlife habitats are drawing opposition from energy and agriculture industries.

    The Bismarck Tribune reports that the state Game and Fish Department has proposed voluntary guidelines aimed at steering wind developers away from building turbines and roads in wildlife habitats. The guidelines also outline a way companies can offset their impact to habitats via projects that restore or reconstruct habitats elsewhere.

    Utility company officials said last week they weren't given the opportunity to comment on the proposal. They also questioned the department's authority to develop guidelines they say could be interpreted as requirements.

    Department officials say they'll keep working with stakeholders to revise the recommendations. The agency says North Dakota has 12 species on the federal threatened and endangered list.
