     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The leaders of four American Indian tribes in North Dakota have signed an agreement with the state that includes allowing tribes to license foster care parents on and off reservations. The Bismarck Tribune reports the tribes attended a ceremonial signing Friday at the state Capitol.

    The agreement involves funding that gives money to states and tribes for foster care, transitional independent living programs, and guardianship and adoption programs and services. Tribes can access the funding through an agreement with states.

    State foster care administrator Dean Sturn says until the new agreement, tribes could license foster care parents only on tribal lands. Sturn says Native American children represent more than 35% of children in North Dakota's foster care system.

     ECKELSON, N.D. (AP) - Authorities say a North Dakota man was killed in an all-terrain vehicle crash while searching for his brother, who had died in a similar wreck minutes earlier. The Highway Patrol says the two crashes happened about 10 minutes apart Friday night near Eckelson.
 
     Authorities say each brother was driving an ATV to a farm. Forty-three-year-old Kyle Foster of Tucson, Arizona, was the first to roll his four-wheeler into a slough. He died at the scene.
 
     His 47-year-old brother, Jeremie Foster of Fargo, made it to the farm and then began to retrace his route to find his brother. He lost control, rolling into a ditch, and died on the way to a hospital.
 
     Authorities say neither brother was wearing a helmet and alcohol was a factor in both wrecks.

The patrol says the crash at a Highway 19 intersection near Esmond Saturday afternoon happened when the pickup driver missed a stop sign, was struck by the semi and caught fire.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A highly-publicized North Dakota Air National Guard flight to bring an infant's heart to a waiting transplant patient in California more than 30 years ago is set to be showcased in Fargo.

    The flight of the F-4 Phantom, a supersonic fighter, took place in December 1986 after a Lear jet flown from California to Fargo to pick up the heart broke down in cold weather. The flight took place on emergency orders from North Dakota Gov. George Sinner, who died last year.

    The pilot, current North Dakota Air National Guard Brig. Gen. Bob Becklund, flew the golf-ball sized organ to Stanford Medical Center. KFGO radio reports that the heart recipient, now 33, lives in the San Francisco area.

    The "Heart Flight" display will be unveiled later this month at the Fargo Air Museum.
