The National Congress of American Indians is applauding President Barack Obama for fulfilling a promise to visit Indian Country....

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The National Congress of American Indians is applauding President Barack Obama for fulfilling a promise to visit Indian Country.  Obama is visiting the Standing Rock Reservation in the Dakotas today to get a firsthand look at culture and also the problems there.
 
     The National Congress of American Indians says in a statement that having Obama visit Indian Country has been "a longtime priority." It says the president's visit builds on his administration's efforts to work closely with tribal nations.
 
     Obama is only the third sitting president to come into Indian Country in almost 80 years. In 2008, then-candidate Obama pledged to expand health services, improve education, combat methamphetamine dealers, promote economic development and improve housing on reservations.
 
     Some Standing Rock residents say many of those promises have yet to be met.

     Adekunle Adetiloye was sentenced to 18 years in prison for mail fraud. Authorities say he stole the identities of about 38,000 people and bilked companies out of about $1.5 million.
 
     A judge ruled later that Adetiloye should pay back about $1,700, after prosecutors asked for restitution of nearly $744,000. The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals overruled and said the monetary judgment should be reconsidered.

     Enforcement Chief Robert Timian says the most prevalent violation was fishing without a license, involving 36 nonresidents and 13 residents. Only 14 violations were directly related to paddlefishing.  Other citations included boating violations, failure to obey wildlife management area rules and alcohol violations.
