Federal officials say they're reducing the hours that three U.S.-Canada border crossings in Montana are open each day.....

     HELENA, Mont. (AP) - Federal officials say they're reducing the hours that three U.S.-Canada border crossings in Montana are open each day. However, U.S. Customs and Border Protection temporarily backed off a plan to close the 24-hour crossing near Plentywood daily at midnight after backlash by residents and politicians.
     The border patrol agency said in a statement Thursday the ports of Scobey, Morgan and Opheim will operate from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. year round starting June 1. Those ports are currently open from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. during the summer. The Port of Raymond north of Plentywood will remain a 24-hour port this summer while the agency "continues discussions with the Canadian government and local stakeholders."
     Farmers and residents protest that re-routing 24-hour border traffic 100 miles away to North Dakota would be inconvenient and hurt economic activity.


     BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - The Trump administration is withdrawing a proposal for freight trains to have at least two crew members, which was drafted in response to explosions of crude oil trains in the U.S. and Canada. Department of Transportation officials said Thursday that a review of accident data did not support the notion that having one crew member is less safe than multi-person crews.

    Under President Barack Obama, regulators said having two or more crew members would be worth the extra cost even if it prevented a single accident. That proposal followed explosive oil train derailments including in Lac Megantic, Canada in 2013, when 47 people were killed in a 2013 derailment. Other derailments have occurred in Oregon, Montana, Illinois, Virginia and other states. The withdrawal also pre-empts states from regulating crew sizes.


     WAHPETON, N.D. (AP) - The attorney for the parents of a North Dakota college student found dead after becoming an informant to drug investigators plan to appeal a judge's dismissal of their wrongful death lawsuit. Tim O'Keeffe said Thursday that Tammy and John Sadek are disappointed with the ruling. The Sadeks sued the Richland County Sheriff's Department, one of its deputies and the county, alleging that their son, Andrew Sadek, was killed because he was coerced into becoming a drug informant.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A federal judge has granted a reprieve to the owners of a Mandan bar fighting to preserve a mural at their business. U.S. District Court Judge Daniel Hovland granted a temporary restraining order Wednesday two days after the owners of Lonesome Dove filed a lawsuit against the city of Mandan over the mural city officials ordered removed.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Bismarck police have arrested a man on possible terrorizing charges after he was accused of pointing a rifle at his neighbors. Officers were called to a mobile home park Wednesday about 7 p.m. Authorities say one of the neighbors disarmed the man who went back inside his residence. Police set up a perimeter around the home. The SWAT team responded with four tactical vehicles and the bomb squad. The man was eventually arrested.
