A traffic stop turned into a drug arrest late Saturday night.....

    MINOT, ND - A traffic stop turned into a drug arrest late Saturday night.  Minot police investigated a potential vehicle registration issue in the 1500 block of 4th Avenue Northwest. It was determined the plates on the vehicle were not registered to the vehicle.

    Police discovered that 29-year old Louis Henry Bauer III was on probation with the ND Department of Corrections.  His parole officer gave permission to search the vehicle. Upon searching the vehile, officers found multiple small baggies containing methamphetamine and other evidence to support he was selling meth. A glass smoking device commonly used for smoking methamphetamine was also found in the vehicle.

    Bauer was placed under arrest for Possession of Methamphetamine with Intent to Deliver, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia other than Marijuana, and Driving with canceled/revoked/altered plates. Bauer was transported to Ward County Jail.

     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - A Minot health care provider has filed a legal response that disputes claims made by a nursing home that it's responsible for dozens of residents contracting hepatitis C last year.
 
     Trinity Health filed its response this week to a lawsuit from ManorCare that alleges the health care provider is responsible for the disease outbreak discovered last year in Minot. ManorCare says one Trinity employee who administers phlebotomy services caused the outbreak.
 
     Randy Schwan is the vice president for marketing and community education at Trinity. Scwhan tells KXMC-TV there is no "physiological, statistical or epidemiological" way this large-scale outbreak could be spread through phlebotomy.  Schwan says an investigation by the Centers for Disease Control and the state health department didn't find a link between the outbreak and Trinity.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Supporters of changing North Dakota's pharmacy ownership law say they have the necessary signatures to get their measure on the ballot.  The Secretary of State's Office says supporters brought more than 1,400 petitions to Secretary of State Al Jaeger Friday. Organizing officials told the office they had collected almost 24,000 signatures. They need 13,452 valid signatures to get on the ballot.
 
     The proposed measure would change a requirement in North Dakota law that says majority ownership in pharmacies in the state must be held by a registered pharmacist. That could open the door for big-box retailers such as Wal-Mart to operate pharmacies in the state.
 
     Jaeger has 35 days to determine the validity of the signatures and decide whether to place the measure on the ballot.

     BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - Air Force officials are expected to decide as soon as next month whether to go forward with an expansion of a bomber training area over the Northern Plains that would encompass an area larger than West Virginia.
 
     The Powder River Training Complex over portions of Wyoming, Montana and the Dakotas would be used by B-1 and B-52 bombers.  Air Force officials say the expansion of the training airspace to about 28,000 square miles is needed to maintain readiness. It also would save $23 million a year by reducing the number of sorties sent to Utah and Nevada for combat exercises.
 
     Some members of Congress, pilots and others have resisted what one Montana official called a federal government "airspace grab." They want the proposal scaled back to ease impacts on private and commercial flights.

     WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's workforce agency says a shift in the labor market has drawn more women seeking permanent work in the oil and gas industry of western North Dakota.  Job Service North Dakota kept tabs on gender ratios in the workforce from January to June.
 
     The Williston Herald reports that overall the total number of people walking into the downtown Williston office looking for work increased by 33 percent to 2,264 in June. The number of women seeking jobs in Williston jumped by 65 percent to 804.  Women made up 36 percent of the total walk-ins who registered at Job Service North Dakota in June.

     BURLINGTON, N.D. (AP) - A fire west of Burlington has claimed one family's home.  KXMC-TV reports Burlington and Minot Rural Fire Departments were called out around 11:30 a.m. Saturday for fire at a mobile home west of Highway 2 and 52.  Minot Rural Fire Assistant Chief Rob Knuth says the family was home at the time but no injuries were reported.  The Mid-Dakota Chapter of the American Red Cross has been contacted to assist the family.  It's unclear how the fire started.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A North Dakota postmaster accused of collecting emergency salary advances he had authorized for his employees says he will plead guilty.  Edmund Sharp IV is charged in federal court with misappropriation of postal funds and false statements. He faces a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison.
 
     Prosecutors say the scheme took place between June 2013 and February 2014 while Sharp was the postmaster at Beulah. The plea agreement says it was an effort to meet the demands of higher costs of living in western North Dakota.  It's not clear how much money was involved, but the charging document says it was more than $1,000.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's congressional delegation says the Three Affiliated Tribes will receive $48,500 in federal economic development funds.  The grant comes from the federal Economic Development Administration.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Pembina County is receiving almost $300,000 in grant funding to continue renovations on the Renwick Dam.  The funding comes from the National Resource Conservation Service and its Watershed Rehabilitation program.
 
     The Renwick Dam is on the Tongue River, a tributary of the Pembina River. The money will be used to support the second phase of renovations to the Dam, helping provide a spillway and embankment.
 
     The three members of North Dakota's congressional delegation each announced and praised the funding separately Friday.  The watershed Rehabilitation Program was recently reauthorized by the 2014 farm bill.

     GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota National Guard soldiers who spent nearly a year helping protect the air space in the Washington, D.C., area have been honored for their service.
 
     The Guard held a ceremony in Grand Forks on Sunday to formally honor the members of the 188th Air Defense Artillery Regiment. More than 200 soldiers with the unit returned home in May from the homeland security mission.
 
     It was the 10th deployment for the battalion, making the 188th the most-deployed North Dakota Guard unit during the global war on terror. Portions of the battalion previously served in Iraq, Afghanistan and Kosovo.
