KHRT NEWS - TUESDAY - 061218 - 1200

 

A 10-year-old girl has died and another has been injured in a weekend accident on a lake in McLean County.
 
     Sheriff's officials say the victim along with another 10-year-old girl were on an inner tube that was being pulled by a boat on Strawberry Lake Saturday.
 
     Their inner tube was struck by an uncontrolled Jet Ski whose operator had been thrown from the watercraft a short time earlier.
 
     Both girls were transferred from a Minot hospital to Gillette Children's Specialty Healthcare Hospital in St Paul, Minnesota where one of the girls died. The other remains hospitalized. Her condition was not available.

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.

 A Larimore man has been sentenced to about a year in jail for driving drunk last fall and causing a crash that killed another man.
 
     Authorities say 58-year-old Allen Miller of Petersburg was killed last September when Paul Lilja's pickup truck turned in front of his motorcycle on a county road east of Larimore and the two vehicles collided.
 
     WDAZ-TV reports that Lilja pleaded guilty Monday to negligent homicide in a deal with prosecutors under which he will still be eligible for work release.
 
     The judge also ordered Lilja to spend 20 hours speaking to high school students about the dangers of drunken driving.

 North Dakota Rep. Kevin Cramer carries the hopes of Republicans for a big Senate pickup this fall. But before Cramer can tackle Democratic Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, he has to get past a little-known opponent in Tuesday's primary. Cramer and Heitkamp are both stockpiling millions for a race seen as one of the GOP's best chances to gain ground in a tough midterm. Heitkamp barely won her first term six years ago.

 Williston native Katie Olson is the new Miss North Dakota.

     Olson will compete in this year's Miss America pageant in the fall.

Riverdale, ND - Rapid snow melt from the Rocky Mountains in Montana has made its way to the Missouri River.

In response, the Army Corps of Engineers increased water release from the Garrison Dam to 44,000 cubic feet per second (CFS) at the end of last week.

Although it is an increase, it's nothing near the 150,000 CFS that was released back in 2011, going over the spillway and flooding surrounding areas.

However, the snow pack is well above normal this year, so the rapid runoff means it's an exclusive flood control zone.

That's why 44,000 CFS will be released for the next three weeks, and the corps is likely to maintain 40,000 CFS until August.

"To put it in perspective, if we didn't have the dam in place right now with the inflows, we would see over 100,000 CFS going through the Bismarck Mandan region right now," Todd Lindquist, Operations Project Manager for the US Army Corps of Engineers said. "So essentially the dam is doing what it was designed to do and were maintaining a much lower release through that reach."

Lindquist said there's really no concern for any downstream flooding, and that there'd have to be a pretty extreme rain event to change that.
In 2011, water was released at full capacity through the power plant, regulating tunnels and over the spillway.

Whereas now, water is only moving through the power plant and only about 3,000 CFS is coming through a regulating tunnel.

 A journalist arrested last year while covering protests over the Dakota Access oil pipeline has been cleared of criminal trespass charges.
 
     The Bismarck Tribune reports that Judge Thomas Schneider ruled Friday that Jenni Monet complied with police orders while reporting on the demonstration.
 
     Court records say Monet was reporting for Yes! Magazine on police clearing a protest camp in Morton County when she and about 75 others were arrested on Feb. 1, 2017. Police testified that the camp sat on Dakota Access-owned property, but demonstrators alleged it was treaty land.
 
     Schneider says Monet didn't knowingly break the law when she stayed while police ordered everyone to leave the property.
 
     Monet said Friday that journalism is vital in "shining a light where there's darkness, especially in marginalized communities like Standing Rock."
