     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A Fargo man has been sentenced to 35 years in federal prison for sexually abusing a toddler and child pornography. Prosecutors say 36-year-old Dustin Kewley took the 1-year-old child from Fargo to Moorhead, Minnesota where he and a co-defendant abused the toddler at a hotel in May 2017. Federal agents, working undercover, began communicating with Kewley who said he planned to produce a video of the child being abused. Kewley electronically sent the video to an undercover agent. Co-defendant Bryan Hogle has pleaded guilty to charges and will be sentenced Jan. 25.


     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota lawmakers are expected to establish a starting point this afternoon for state government's next two-year budget. Gov. Doug Burgum has proposed a $14.3 billion spending plan. But oil prices that have slid in recent weeks could have the Legislature setting its budget plan well below the governor's request. Burgum's budget plan and a forecast by the Legislature's own economic consultancy both expect oil prices to rise.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Gov. Doug Burgum says construction of a Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Library in Medora would elevate North Dakota's reputation around the globe.

    Burgum has proposed dedicating $50 million of the interest from an oil tax savings account for the library being developed by a private foundation. He says state money would be matched by $100 million in private fundraising. He pitched the idea today to a House appropriations subcommittee. Some lawmakers including Bismarck Rep. Mike Nathe say they'd like to see some solid private money commitments before they devote state money.
     State lawmakers in 2013 pledged $12 million for a library project in Dickinson. But the foundation last year decided to put the project in Medora, at the entrance to Theodore Roosevelt National Park. Nearly $10 million was returned to the state.


    FARGO, N.D. - The North Dakota Air National Guard welcomed a new State Command Chief, Saturday as Chief Master Sgt. Jeff Miller assumed duties from Chief Master Sgt. Kevin Muehler during a change of responsibility ceremony at the Air Guard base in Fargo.

    As the state command chief, Miller reports to Brig. Gen. Todd Branden, assistant adjutant general for the North Dakota Air National Guard. In his new role, Miller will advise senior military leaders on matters concerning discipline, morale, welfare, effective utilization, professional development and career progression of the state's Airmen.

    "I'm truly humbled and honored to represent the Airmen of the finest Air National Guard unit in the United States," said Miller. "I look forward to serving you over the next three years."

    Miller began his career in the North Dakota Air National Guard in 1981 as an F-4 aircraft armament systems mechanic. In 1990, he transferred to the maintenance data system analysis office where he remained until 2000 when he became a first sergeant for the aircraft generation squadron. In December 2001, Miller accepted a full-time position in the base education and training office as the non-commissioned officer-in-charge and was then named manager of the office in 2004. In August 2016, he was assigned as the classification specialist and force support manager in the human resources office at the North Dakota National Guard's Joint Force Headquarters in Bismarck.

    Muehler served three years as the Command Chief and was honored with a retirement ceremony immediately following the change of responsibility.

    "Chief Muehler, I know you truly care about the men and women of our Air National Guard," said Branden during the ceremony. "You always did the right thing for the organization and for our Airmen. Thank you for being a great leader and for all your years of faithful service."

    Muehler began his career in the U.S. Air Force in June 1978 as a pneudraulics system specialist, providing aircraft maintenance for the F-5E Aggressor Squadron. After only two years, he was chosen to become a maintenance member of the prestigious U.S. Air Force Thunderbird demonstration team.

    After his active duty service, Muehler spent two years with the New York Air National Guard before transferring to the North Dakota Air National Guard in 1988. He was a long-time member of the aircraft maintenance squadron before moving into the intelligence career field in 2006 when the 119th Wing assumed the MQ-1 Predator mission. As a mission intelligence coordinator and superintendent of the Wing's Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance Group, Chief Muehler supported Operations Enduring Freedom, Iraqi Freedom and New Dawn.
