Williston has settled a lawsuit filed by a Florida-based advertising agency over signs in the city.....

     WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - Williston has settled a lawsuit filed by a Florida-based advertising agency over signs in the city.  The City Commission in August 2013 denied sign applications from Great Plains Outdoor Advertising, saying the signs did not conform with city guidelines. Great Plains then sued in state district court.
 
     The Williston Herald reports that the settlement agreement reached through mediation includes undisclosed compensation and also gives Great Plains the right to put up signs at six sites in the city. Mayor Ward Koeser signed the agreement Wednesday.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Commercial air service has resumed in the cities of Devils Lake and Jamestown, with SkyWest Airlines launching flights.  Great Lakes Airlines pulled out of Devils Lake and Jamestown early this year, and leaders in both cities endorsed a switch to SkyWest to provide federally subsidized air service.
 
     Federal Transportation Department officials agreed to the switch, and KZZY radio and KSJB radio report that flights resumed Thursday afternoon - this time on 50-passenger jets rather than on turboprop planes.  Devils Lake airport manager John Nord and Jamestown airport authority board member Jim Boyd both said the same thing: "This is a great day."

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A Fargo man accused of using a knife to cut a man whom he lured through an online sex ad has pleaded not guilty to felony robbery and kidnapping charges.  Eighteen-year-old Obsa Omer entered his pleas on Thursday. A trial date was not immediately set.
 
     Authorities say the victim had responded to a Craigslist ad placed by Omer when he was assaulted. KFGO radio reports that police in Fargo and neighboring Moorhead, Minnesota, suspect Omer in other assaults and robberies in the area.

     WAHPETON, N.D. (AP) - A suspect is in custody in the armed robbery of a Wahpeton gas station.  Police in Moorhead, Minnesota, on Thursday night arrested a 31-year-old man who they say confessed to robbing the Tesoro station in Wahpeton early that day. Investigators say the man gave them a detailed account of the robbery in which a man with a pistol demanded money from the cash register and fled with between $200 and $250 in cash.  The man was arrested at a Moorhead motel on an armed robbery charge. Authorities say they also recovered evidence tying the man to the robbery.

     BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - Railroads being forced to turn over details of their crude oil shipments are asking states to sign agreements not to reveal the information. But North Dakota and some other states are refusing, saying the information should be public. The railroads facing a government disclosure deadline today say the information is security sensitive.

     STANTON, N.D. (AP) - Hidatsa members of North Dakota's Three Affiliated Tribes are marking the return of ancestral lands to the tribe.  Tribal elders Reba and Tillie Walker, who are sisters, bought the Knife River Ranch near Stanton and donated it to the tribe in honor of their late father, Hans Young Bird Walker Sr.  Young Bird was a member of the Low Cap Clan of Hidatsa.  Tribal members lived on the property until a smallpox epidemic destroyed the village in 1837.
 
     Three Affiliated Tribes Chairman Tex Hall says the tribe plans to open a cultural interpretive center on the site in order to "further preserve the traditions and legacy of the Hidatsa people."  A ceremony is scheduled for 2 pm today.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Don't have a North Dakota fishing license? Not a problem, at least not this weekend.  The state Game and Fish Department says anglers can fish for free on Saturday and Sunday. The agency holds one such weekend every year.  While no fishing license is required, all other regulations still apply.
