    MINOT, ND - The Minot Police Department is requesting assistance in locating a suspect who witnessed the shooting a handgun in the 2500 block of North Broadway on June 18th.  

    Officers responded to the area after a witness heard gunshots in the area of Magic City Cleaners at 2505 N. Broadway.  Officers arrived on scene shortly after the report and were unable to locate the suspect in the area.  It was later determined he walked to the north and west from the area of 2505 N. Broadway.  

    Evidence was found at the scene indicating a firearm had been shot in the area the suspect was seen walking.  There was no damage found to any property and no injuries reported.  Still photos from the video footage recovered from a nearby surveillance camera are being released in an attempt to identify the suspect.  

    Anyone with information is asked to call the Minot Police Department at 701-852-0111.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The Belfield Public School Board has scheduled a hearing next month over allegations of questionable practices by the town's high school principal.  The board last month suspended Jeffrey Lamprecht without pay. A hearing before the board will be held next month.
 
     A state Bureau of Criminal Investigation report says a female student told staff that Lamprecht had been asking her for several months to come to his office to talk for extended periods of time during the school day. He allegedly gave her dietary pills and took a photo of her without consent.
 
     BCI investigators say they considered the behavior "criminal in nature" but that it would be best handled by the school.  Lamprecht told investigators he was only looking out for the well-being of his students.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Dozens of North Dakota lawmakers will be getting a tour next month of the state's booming oil patch and its impact on the region.  The North Dakota Petroleum Council is sponsoring the event. It's the second such tour that will precede a Legislative session in recent years.
 
     Officials in oil producing counties hope the trip will pay off with what they say is sorely needed additional state spending on oil patch infrastructure in the western part of the state.  North Dakota Petroleum Council spokeswoman Alexis Brinkman says the two-day bus tour begins Aug. 26 and more than 40 lawmakers will take part.  Lawmakers are slated to visit drilling rig and oil well sites and spend the night in a crew camp.

    BISMARK, ND (PNS) - For thousands of low-income families in North Dakota, summer vacation is a time of increased hunger, as children don't have their usual school meals to rely on.

    Signe Anderson, Senior Child Nutrition Policy Analyst with the Food Research and Action Center (FRAC), says a new study conducted by her organization shows participation in summer nutrition programs fell 13 percent in North Dakota from 2012 to 2013. Nationally, numbers rose overall after the hit many programs took during the recession.

    "During the economic downturn, a lot of schools shut their doors and no longer offered summer school," says Anderson. "So along with that, summer meals disappeared because meal programs are often set up in conjunction with summer school programs."

    Last year the number of North Dakota kids in summer nutrition programs fell to under 2,000, representing only about seven percent of the children in the state who receive free and reduced-price lunches during the school year.

    According to Anderson, another way to reach those kids going without regular meals during the summer is through local parks and recreation programs.

    "Kids are often in parks and enjoying the outdoors, and ideally you want them outside and active in a safe space," says Anderson. "Working with parks and recreation departments has also been a good avenue, along with area YMCAs and Boys and Girls Clubs."

    Nationally, the average daily participation in summer meal programs rose about six percent from 2012 to 2013, and now reaches nearly three million children. Anderson notes that in addition to nutritious food, summer meal programs also help children with enrichment and recreational activities that keep them engaged, learning, and safe during summer vacation.

     DEVILS LAKE, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Highway Patrol says three men on high-performance motorcycles were pulled over for driving 151 mph in a 55 mph zone.  The incident happened about 8:30 pm Wednesday along Highway 57 near Fort Totten.
 
     The patrol says the Devils Lake men were issued speeding citations with a fine of $355 each. They also face charges of reckless driving, and were cited for driving without a motorcycle endorsement and driving without liability insurance.
