     WAHPETON, N.D. (AP) - About 100 people turned out for a "Vigil of Hope" for a missing North Dakota State College of Science student.  Twenty-year-old Andrew Sadek, of Rogers, hasn't been seen since he left his dorm over a week ago.  Ground and air searches have turned up no trace of him.  Classmates and staff gathered in a gymnasium on the Wahpeton campus Thursday night for a prayer session.  Campus Police Sgt. Steve Helgeson says authorities have found nothing to explain Sadek's disappearance.


     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - One of the people who pleaded guilty to charges in the heroin overdose death of a Fargo blues guitarist has been sentenced to serve 12 years in prison.  Twenty-seven-year-old Nathan Evenson, of Fargo, also was ordered to pay nearly $4,400 in restitution, and to serve three years on supervised release following his prison term.
     Evenson pleaded guilty to a drug conspiracy charge in the June 2012 death of 30-year-old Cody Conner.  U.S. Attorney Timothy Purdon says Evenson and others would receive heroin shipments from Minneapolis and distribute them in the Fargo area. Seth Lund previously was sentenced to seven years in prison for his role. Nicole Wadsworth is to be sentenced June 2.


     WAHPETON, N.D. (AP) - A man charged in a fatal hit-and-run in Oakes a year ago has pleaded guilty to manslaughter, and prosecutors have dropped a murder charge against him.  Twenty-three-year-old Dakota Sutton, of Brampton, was charged in the April 2013 death of 28-year-old Reavis Dandridge. Prosecutors say Sutton forced Dandridge out of his truck, then ran him down and left him for dead.
     WDAY-TV reports Sutton pleaded guilty Thursday to manslaughter, leaving the scene of an accident and driving under the influence under the plea agreement with prosecutors.
     Manslaughter carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison, compared to life behind bars for murder. A sentencing date was not immediately set.  Family members of Dandridge who live in the Twin Cities area in Minnesota say the plea deal is an injustice.


     FARGO, N.D.

Police believe the thefts took place over a period of two to three years. Some of the stolen jewelry was tracked to local pawn shops.
     The victim's attorney, Randy Stefanson, tells KFGO news that Carney was a trusted friend who had a key and "carte blanche" access to the property.  Lorelle Moeckel, Carney's attorney, did not return phone messages.


     RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - The Chamber of Commerce in the western South Dakota hub of Rapid City is gauging interest in a direct flight to the western North Dakota oil patch city of Williston.  A Chamber survey is asking how many business people drive between the two regions, and how many would take advantage of a flight.

     Department Licensing Manager Randy Meissner says the agency is dealing with a high volume of registrations as boat owners prepare for the new season. He says the processing time for mail applications is 10 to 14 days.
     Meissner says that might be cutting it a little close for someone wanting to register a boat by Memorial Day weekend. And he says the processing time can be cut to just a few days through the online renewal system, at .

    BISMARCK, N.D. (PNS) - As families across the state prepare to celebrate Mother's Day on Sunday, a reminder for mothers to not judge themselves so harshly.  Family therapist Karen Walant says while many strive for the ideal of the so-called super mom - perfect in every way - there is no such thing as just right.

    "There's, I like to call, small victories," she points out. "There's just each individual moment and, 'How did that interaction go?' And then the next interaction and then the next - always building and building, and building onto the basic bond.  You know, there is no such thing as perfection. We're all in a process. We're all learning."

    Walant stresses mothers should take time out for some self-care on a regular basis and they need to know that it's okay to reach out when they need help.  She adds the better measure of a mother is raising children who are healthy, content and secure, so they can reach their own potential in life.

    "What I really want to stress is that it's a lifetime relationship, filled with hopefully security so that our children no matter what age they are - can always feel they can involve us in their lives, can be engaged with us and feel supported by us," she says.
