     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - The military says Secretary of the Air Force Deborah Lee James is slated to visit the Minot Air Force Base today.  James is the service's top civilian official and has been on the job for about a month.
 
     James says 34 missile launch officers have been implicated in a cheating scandal and three others have been implicated in a drug probe, the latest missteps by those who maintain and operate the nation's 450 nuclear missiles.
 
     James has said she will travel to each of the Air Force's three nuclear missile bases this week on a fact-finding mission to learn more about conditions within the missile launch force and the more senior officers who manage them.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - An oil industry group based in Oklahoma is urging royalty owners in North Dakota to fight a plan that would protect special plots of land from development.  The Tulsa-based Royalty Owners and Producers Education Coalition says North Dakotans' property rights are being eroded and "royalty checks are at serious risk."  The group is funded by six oil companies, including one that's the largest leaseholder of land in western North Dakota.
 
     Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem last month submitted the proposed list of 18 places for special protection. The so-called special places list includes private and public land, including the Little Missouri River National Grasslands and Lake Sakakawea.  The North Dakota Industrial Commission is slated to review the proposal today.

Chamber president Darick Franzen says counties are dealing with oil-related issues such as housing, traffic and infrastructure.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Highway Patrol says the number of drug-related arrests increased by 100 in the state last year. KXMB-TV reports that troopers made 913 arrests in 2013. That's up from just more than 800 in 2012. Patrol Sgt. Tom Iverson says troopers have put more K-9 units in the western part of the state, which likely has contributed to the growing number of drug arrests.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Residents who live near the Missouri River in Bismarck have rejected a proposal to fund a flood protection levee. About 150 residents were asked to decide if they wanted to pay part of the cost of the $1.3 million project over 15 years through a special assessment district. The proposal failed 54-46 in a mail-in vote by landowners.
