Authorities say the suspect, Donald Miller, punched the officer in the head repeatedly and gouged his eyes. Miller was shot in the stomach. He's been charged with assaulting a peace officer and robbery.

     SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - A Dakotas nonprofit is urging consumers who buy health insurance on their own to sign up early through the Affordable Care Act marketplace. The open enrollment period for 2018 health coverage began today and runs until December 15th, 2017, a sign-up period six weeks shorter than last year.
 
     Community HealthCare Association of the Dakotas CEO Shelly Ten Napel says community health centers and others are working hard to inform people that coverage and financial help are available. She says people who plan to renew or enroll in a health plan should get prepared and sign up early to ensure coverage.
 
     The nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation says for the 2017 open enrollment period, over 21,000 people in North Dakota and more than 29,000 people in South Dakota selected a marketplace plan.

A report released Wednesday says the Mid-America Business Conditions Index rose to 58.8 in October from 58.2 in September. Survey organizers say any score above 50 suggests growth in that factor. Creighton University economist Ernie Goss says national and regional indices indicate the manufacturing sector is expanding at a very healthy pace.

     The group came up with the concept and opened the first farmer-owned restaurant in 2006, in Washington, D.C. Other farmer-owned restaurants are located in Maryland and Virginia. They feature beef, vegetables, and other crops sent directly from North Dakota and family farms across the country.
 
     A seventh restaurant is scheduled to open next year in Reston, Virginia.

     GRANDIN, N.D. (AP) - A Fargo man ended up inadvertently "plowing" a short section of Interstate 29 in Cass County when the chisel plow he was pulling with a tractor struck an overpass. The Highway Patrol says the man was traveling from a field near Grandin to a Horace-area farm midday Tuesday when the 16-foot-tall plow hit the bottom of an overpass. The bridge wasn't damaged, but the impact pushed the plow spades into the roadway and resulted in some deep gouges to the surface. The driver wasn't injured, but he was cited for violating height restrictions.
