     WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - Authorities have identified the man who died at an oilfield worksite near Williston. Williams County sheriff's officials say 34-year-old Jesus Herrera died Saturday when he was struck in the head by a heavy rod. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is investigating his death. Herrera was an oil field hand for Brigade Energy Services in Williston. OSHA's last investigation of an oilfield-related fatality in North Dakota was in February 2018.


     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Gov. Doug Burgum is asking for federal help in dealing with widespread spring flooding that damaged homes, public infrastructure, hundreds of roads and thousands of acres of farmland in western, south central and eastern North Dakota.
     Burgum requested a presidential major disaster declaration today for help in recovering from flood damage that was expected to exceed $8.5 million. The request covers flooding that occurred from March 21 to April 29 in the counties of Adams, Barnes, Cass, Dickey, Emmons, Grand Forks, Grant, Hettinger, LaMoure, Logan, McKenzie, Morton, Pembina, Ransom, Richland, Sargent, Steele, Traill and Walsh.
     A declaration by President Donald Trump would trigger financial recovery assistance. The governor declared a statewide flood emergency on March 27, activating the National Guard and some state agencies to help with flood-fighting efforts.


    JAMESTOWN, N.D. (AP) - Jamestown police detained a man after getting a report of an armed suspect outside the high school. Jamestown High School, Two Rivers Activity Center and all other schools were locked down Thursday afternoon after police received a call that a man with a gun on a bike approached the high school, but was turned away at the front doors. Police Chief Scott Edinger tells KQDJ officers went to the man's house after a witness identified him.
     The 18-year-old was detained and brought to the Stutsman County Law Enforcement Center for questioning. Edinger says a black airsoft handgun was recovered from the residence. An airsoft gun shoots plastic or rubber bullets. The Stutsman County Sheriff's Office, the North Dakota Highway Patrol and the North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigation assisted Jamestown police.

     GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - Grand Forks police arrested a man who led officers on a chase through a park. Authorities say driver fled after officers tried to pull the man over for an expired vehicle registration about 1 a.m. today. The vehicle pursuit through University Park ended after the driver hit some rocks, deflating his tires. He ran from the scene, hid in a trailer in an alley but was tracked down with a police dog and arrested. Police are recommending charges of reckless endangerment, among others.


    BISMARCK, N.D. - Gov. Doug Burgum has directed all government agencies to fly the United States and North Dakota flags at half-staff on Monday, May 27, until noon, and encouraged North Dakotans to do the same at their homes and businesses, in observance of Memorial Day. Flags should be raised to full-staff at noon Monday. The governor's directive is in accordance with a proclamation issued today by President Donald Trump.

    North Dakotans are encouraged to observe the President's proclamation, which designates the hour beginning at 11 a.m. local time Monday as a time when Americans might unite in prayer, and to observe the National Moment of Remembrance at 3 p.m. local time.

    "On Memorial Day - and every day - we remember the brave military men and women who defended our most precious freedoms and made the ultimate sacrifice in the name of liberty," Burgum said. "With unending gratitude, we honor their incredible acts of valor and unwavering devotion to the service of this nation."

    Burgum will commemorate the day by attending and delivering welcoming remarks at the Memorial Day ceremony at noon Monday at the North Dakota Veterans Cemetery near Mandan.
