Xcel Energy says it is lifting an appeal to residential customers conserve natural gas.....
     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Xcel Energy says it is lifting an appeal to residential customers in parts of North Dakota, Minnesota and Wisconsin to conserve natural gas by turning down heat and avoiding using gas appliances.
 
     Xcel began asking customers on Saturday to conserve natural gas after an explosion Saturday near Winnipeg that knocked out three pipelines. The Minneapolis-based utility says progress continued today on restoring normal natural gas transmission service to its service territory in the Upper Midwest.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Blizzard conditions have eased in North Dakota but the cold weather hasn't.  The National Weather Service has issued wind chill warnings and advisories statewide through Tuesday morning.
 
     Actual temperatures overnight are expected to range from 15 degrees below zero in the southwest to 30 below zero in the east. Wind chills are expected from 30 below to 50 below.  Exposed skin can freeze in as little as 10 minutes in such conditions, and prolonged exposure can lead to hypothermia and even death.

     JAMESTOWN, N.D. (AP) - A student from California who allegedly made threats that led to a brief lockdown of a college campus in North Dakota is to stand trial in three months.  Eighteen-year-old Robert Flores, of Southgate, Calif., is to stand trial April 21-22 on a charge of felony terrorizing. He has pleaded not guilty to the charge that carries a maximum punishment of five years in prison upon conviction.
 
     Flores allegedly threatened to kill three students at the University of Jamestown and drink their blood as part of a satanic ritual last Nov. 7. The alleged threats led to a half-hour lockdown of the campus while authorities searched for the student.  Flores' father, Ronald Flores, has said his son was just joking around.

     JAMESTOWN, N.D. (AP) - The manager of Jamestown's airport says Great Lakes Airlines is pulling out of Jamestown and Devils Lake at the end of the month.  KSJB radio reports that Matthew Leitner says Great Lakes is citing a pilot shortage. Great Lakes did not immediately respond to an Associated Press request for comment.
 
     Officials in both Devils Lake and Jamestown earlier endorsed a switch from Great Lakes to SkyWest Airlines to provide service under the federal Essential Air Service program. Great Lakes provides service on turboprop planes, while SkyWest flies jets. The federal Department of Transportation has the final say.
 
     U.S. Sens. John Hoeven and Heidi Heitkamp and a representative from Rep. Kevin Cramer's office this afternoon planned to meet with Susan Kurland, DOT's assistant secretary for aviation and international affairs.
