     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - The remains of two Navy seamen from Minot who were killed in World War II have been identified.
 
     The Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency says 23-year-old Calvin Palmer and 21-year-old brother Wilferd Palmer were assigned to the battleship USS Oklahoma. They were among 429 crewmen on the ship who died in the Dec. 7, 1941, Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.
 
     The remains of the two brothers were exhumed in 2015 from the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific in Honolulu. They were positively identified in March, in part through DNA analysis. The brothers' names are listed on the Walls of the Missing at the cemetery. A rosette will be placed next to their names to indicate they have now been accounted for.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The director of North Dakota State Radio is retiring after a decade on the job. Mike Lynk was appointed in January 2009 to lead the agency that oversees emergency communications. He made upgrading technology a priority. Before that, Lynk had a long career in the security and law enforcement fields. Since 1999 he also has worked security for the Minnesota Vikings training camp in Mankato, Minnesota, most recently as on-field supervisor. His retirement is effective at the end of June.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Capitol will soon welcome its visitors with a new public entrance. The Bismarck Tribune reports that state lawmakers have approved $2 million to remodel the Capitol building's only public entrance before the next legislative session in January 2021. The entrance is accessed through a tunnel that's long been closed to vehicle traffic. Sen. Ray Holmberg says the tunnel would cause winter winds and extreme cold to seep into the Capitol's ground floor.
 
     The state's facilities management director, John Boyle, says the plan calls for enclosing the tunnel and converting drive lanes into sidewalks with landscaping. Boyle says the remodel would also improve handicapped accessibility. Boyle says the changes will make it an "easier, user-friendly experience for people coming to the Capitol." Construction will likely begin next spring.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A program that funds developers of North Dakota farm products is considering grant requests from a dozen projects this quarter. North Dakota's Agricultural Products Utilization Commission provides money every three months for research, marketing, farm diversification, ag tourism and technology.
 
     The group meets Wednesday and Thursday in Bismarck to discuss nearly $900,000 worth of requests. They range from about $7,000 for a freeze-dried herb operation in Esmond to nearly $250,000 for an equipment project at Cloverdale Foods in Mandan. The commission is part of the state Commerce Department.
