Bismarck police say a man injured in a late-night shooting has died....

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Bismarck police say a man injured in a late-night shooting has died. Officers who responded to reports of shots fired about 9:30 p.m. Thursday found a 35-year-old man who had been shot in the chest at an apartment. Derrick Lefthand was taken to a hospital, where he died.
 
     Officers early Friday arrested a 35-year-old man on a weapons count. He wasn't immediately charged in the shooting. Police say a money dispute sparked the alleged incident, and the potential suspect told officers he fired to defend himself.

     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - Authorities say the investigation into a fatal accident on a central North Dakota lake could take some time to complete.
 
     The Minot Daily News reports that 10-year-old Haley Sundsbak, of Des Lacs, died from injuries suffered from a collision while she and another girl were on an inner tube being pulled by a boat. The inner tube was struck by an uncontrolled Jet Ski whose operator had been thrown from the watercraft a short time earlier. The other girl remains hospitalzed. The accident happened last weekend on Strawberry Lake in McLean County.
 
     McLean County Sheriff's Department Lt. Rick Richard says investigators are doing "mechanical and technical" analysis of the Jet Ski, along with other detective work that is "very time consuming." He says there's no timetable for finishing the investigation.

     DUNN CENTER, N.D. (AP) - An Idaho truck driver is accused of illegally dumping saltwater in the North Dakota oil patch. Saltwater is a byproduct of oil production and must be disposed of according to state rules. SBT driver George Baker Jr., of Ponderay, Idaho, is accused of dumping 100 barrels on hay land owned by Dunn Center ranchers Shane and Sheralee Dolezal last weekend. SBT General Manager Bobby Porterfield tells KX News "there is no excuse" for the alleged incident.
 
     Baker faces a felony charge that could land him in prison for up to five years. Court documents don't list an attorney, and a home telephone listing couldn't be found. He could enter a plea July 19. The company also could be fined. Contaminated soil is being removed, and the state Health Department is monitoring the area.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Voters in about a dozen North Dakota school districts have overwhelmingly approved publishing local school board minutes in newspapers, while lawmakers consider a bill draft allowing counties to move their minutes online.
 
     The Bismarck Tribune reports that election results Tuesday for publication of school boards' minutes in newspapers ranged from 80 to 94 percent approval across the state.
 
     North Dakota Newspaper Association Executive Director Steve Andrist says the results are historically consistent with voters wanting minutes in newspapers.
 
     A bill draft to allow counties to publish their proceedings online instead of in a newspaper came about after a study examining costs associated with political subdivisions' public notices.
 
     Republican Sen. Diane Larson says she's not against public notices in newspapers, but that associated costs should be absorbed into the printing price.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Adult rainbow smelt are dying off in Lake Sakakawea, but state wildlife officials and fishing guides say the problem appears worse than it likely is.
 
     Smelt is a prime food for walleye, and the number of young and growing walleye in the lake is among the highest in decades. But the Game and Fish Department says there should be plenty of smelt to feed them all despite the die-off. The smelt population last year was estimated at 200 million - the highest in decades.
 
     Most of the dead smelt show signs of a bacteria that has caused periodic die-offs since smelt were introduced in the lake in the 1970s. The impact of the outbreak won't be known until a summer smelt population survey, but Game and Fish isn't overly worried.
