Authorities are cautioning churches about a convicted child sex offender from California who is allegedly operating a scam.....
     WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - Authorities are cautioning North Dakota churches about a convicted child sex offender from California who is allegedly operating a scam.  Authorities say Kenneth Monk has been walking into churches, telling the congregations that his wife has died in a car accident and he needs money to get to Forest, Miss., to be with his children.  Churches in Washburn, Wilton and Velva have been targeted, and each has given Monk money.  Monk is driving a burgundy Suburban with North Dakota license plates.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - One of two white supremacists accused of terrorizing residents in the small North Dakota town of Leith has pleaded guilty to reduced charges of menacing and disorderly conduct and is being released from jail.  Under terms of the plea agreement, 29-year-old Kynan Dutton must testify against Craig Cobb, who has pleaded not guilty to felony terrorizing.
 
     Dutton moved into a home in Leith owned by Cobb after Cobb last year asked people with white power views to help him take over the town. The two were arrested in mid-November for allegedly terrorizing residents with guns.  Dutton will be on probation for two years. A conviction on one of seven counts will stay on his record, meaning he can no longer buy guns.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A detention hearing in North Dakota has been delayed for a former business associate of a Spokane, Wash., man killed in an alleged murder-for-hire scheme.  Thirty-four-year-old James Henrikson was arrested Saturday in Mandan on a charge of being a felon in possession of a firearm. He was to appear in U.S. District Court in Bismarck today, but the hearing was rescheduled for Tuesday to give him time to meet with his public defender.
 
     Court documents show Henrikson had business dealings in the North Dakota oil patch with Doug Carlile, who was shot by an intruder Dec. 15 at his Spokane home.  Fifty-year-old Timothy Suckow, of Spokane, has been arrested for investigation of first-degree murder in Carlile's death. Henrikson has not been charged in the slaying.

     WASHINGTON (AP) - It began last fall when Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel mentioned what he called "troubling lapses" in the nation's nuclear force.  Weeks later Hagel turned up the heat a notch by paying a rare visit to a nuclear missile base. And on Thursday he dropped his bombshell: a demand for quick answers to what ails this most sensitive of military missions.
 
     Hagel said, quoting: "Personnel failures within this force threaten to jeopardize the trust the American people have placed in us to keep our nuclear weapons safe and secure."
 
     He's ordering immediate actions to define the depth of trouble inside the nuclear force, particularly the Air Force's intercontinental ballistic missile force. It's been rocked by disclosures about security lapses, poor discipline, weak morale and other problems that raise security questions.

     GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - Forecasters in Grand Forks say the risk for substantial spring flooding is low along the Red River and Devils Lake Basin, but they say winter is far from over and an early thaw is less likely.
 
     Greg Gust and Mike Lukes with the National Weather Service say most Minnesota and North Dakota tributaries will likely have minor to moderate flooding. A moderate flood potential is possible for most of the Red River main stem and a rise of 1 to 1 1/2 feet is expected on Devils Lake.
 
     They say soils and streams are a bit "wet" in the far southern basin but otherwise near normal. The water content is generally running a bit low. And the rest of winter is likely to be near to colder than normal.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The Bismarck Park Board has approved the purchase of a 50,000-square-foot competitive swimming facility.  The Bismarck Tribune reports that the board approved the final purchase agreements for the Bismarck State College Aquatic and Wellness Center for $8.68 million.
 
     A nonprofit foundation financed the project, which was built on land donated by the college. The Park District purchased the facility through two revenue bond sales. Parks and Recreation Director Randy Bina says the bonds will be repaid over 20 years from revenue earned by the Park District.
