     DERBY LINE, Vt. (AP) - Some along the northern U.S. border are worried the temporary transfer of hundreds of border agents south could cause backups of people seeking to enter the United States from Canada during the busy summer tourist season.

    U.S. Customs and Border Protection says 731 U.S.-Canada border agents from land, sea and airports will help U.S.-Mexico border colleagues who have been overwhelmed by the apprehension of families and unaccompanied children from Central America. Fourteen members of Congress from seven northern border states are voicing concerns the transfers could hurt cross-border travel and commerce to the acting head of the Department of Homeland Security. Vermont CBP Port Director Gregory Starr says officials will do the best they can to avoid delays.

     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - Recently unveiled concept plans show that an imitation B-52 bomber and an oil derrick will be showcased in the proposed Magic City Discovery Center in Minot.
 
     The Minot Daily News reports that the children's museum's board president Mark Lyman says that the project has raised nearly two-thirds of the $7 million needed for the three-story, 22,000-square-foot facility. Lyman added that groundbreaking will happen on a gill just south of the Minot airport once the project has raised 75 to 80% of the intended funding target.
 
     Paul Orselli, chief instigator with POW!, detailed a 35-foot climbing structure with a B-52 at the top that will be viewed through the multi-story glassed-in atrium. Orselli noted the new building will feature three floors, each with different exhibit galleries.
