Authorities have identified an Idaho man who died in a pickup truck rollover crash in the oil patch.....

     NEW TOWN, N.D. (AP) - Authorities have identified an Idaho man who died in a pickup truck rollover crash in the oil patch. The Highway Patrol says 23-year-old Darren Cooley, of Kooskia, Idaho, died this week when he failed to negotiate a curve on state Highway 1804 north of New Town. Cooley's body was found at the scene Tuesday morning. Authorities believe the crash happened overnight.

     MANDAN, N.D. (AP) - Police say a Mandan officer who shot a man was trying to arrest him on a number of warrants. Deputy Chief Lori Flaten says Mandan police along with officers from the Metro Area Narcotics Task Force spotted the man in Frontier Trailer Park Tuesday and tried to pull him over in a traffic stop. A short time later a Mandan officer fired his or her gun, striking and injuring the man who was taken to the hospital. The man has not been identified. Police have not said what caused the officer to shoot. The North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigations is reviewing the incident.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota regulators won't order a company to stop work on an oil refinery near Theodore Roosevelt National Park so they can study the appropriateness of the site. Meridian Energy Group last spring got state Health Department permission to construct the $800 million Davis Refinery 3 miles from the park. Ground work started in July.

    Environmental groups who fear pollution in the park challenged the site with the Public Service Commission. An administrative law judge recently said the PSC doesn't have jurisdiction over the site because the refinery will be too small to warrant review under state law. The three-member commission voted Wednesday to dismiss the complaint.

    Meridian still faces a legal challenge of its state air quality permit, and it still needs state water and wastewater permits.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Some American Indian leaders are lukewarm over legislation that would allow tribes in North Dakota to collect a state sales tax on their reservations.

    The legislation would require taxation of all tribal and non-tribal owned businesses. Tribal leaders say Indian-owned casinos should be exempt because revenue from them is used for essential services on reservations.

    The state's 5 percent sales tax isn't currently collected on tribal-owned businesses on reservations. The Tribal Taxation Issues Committee, headed by Gov. Doug Burgum, reviewed draft proposal that set up the framework to allow it today.

    The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe had a similar agreement with the state in 2016. But it ended after the state disagreed with the tribe's contention that its casino purchases were not taxable.
