Police are investigating the stabbing of a Minot man last night....

    MINOT, ND - Police are investigating the stabbing of a Minot man last night.  Minot officers say they received a report of a man who had been stabbed in the 900 block of North Main Street around 10 o' clock last night.  A 50-year old man was transported to Trinity ER for his wounds, which were reportedly non-life threatening. Police say the victim refused to cooperate with the investigation; and left the hospital against medical advice.

    Officers say the suspect was reported to possibly be in a nearby residence, but was not located in the residence or in the area.  The victim and suspect knew each other and this appears to be an isolated incident. The suspect in this incident has been identified; however, the names of the parties involved are being withheld at this time due to the ongoing investigation of this incident.

     WAHPETON, N.D. (AP) - The attorney for an Idaho man accused of killing a man outside a strip club in the North Dakota oil patch hub of Williston says his client was only trying to scare the man.
 
     Jonathan Horvath is on trial in Wahpeton, where the case was moved because of extensive media coverage in Williston. He faces several charges including murder in the March 2013 shooting of 28-year-old Derrick Spiegel, of Williston, which authorities say happened following an argument.
 
     The Daily News reports that defense attorney Steven Mottinger told jurors during opening statements that Horvath might have pointed a gun at Spiegel, but it wasn't Horvath's intent to kill him.
 
     Prosecutor Nathan Madden said Horvath fired three shots from a handgun, with the third bullet hitting Spiegel in the head.

     WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - The Williams County Commission has agreed to reduce a $29.6 million crew camp fine against an oil services company to $1.9 million, but the company isn't satisfied.  The commission levied the fine against Western Petroleum LLC and its parent company Pilot Logistics for alleged permit violations at a crew camp.
 
     County Planning Director Ray Pacheco tells the Williston Herald that the reason for the reduced amount is that the county wanted to come up with a reasonable fine but still charge an appropriate amount.
 
     Company officials say the new amount is still too high. They could take it to court, and County Commissioner David Montgomery says he expects the matter to end up there.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota regulators have approved a natural gas processing plant in McKenzie County.  The $280 million Lonesome Creek plant will be 13 miles southwest of Watford City. The Bismarck Tribune reports that the state Public Service Commission unanimously approved the project on Thursday.  The Oneok energy company estimates that as many as 400 jobs will be created during construction of the plant.
 
     Public Service Commissioner Julie Fedorchak says the plant will add needed processing capacity in the state. But Commissioner Randy Christmann says he worries about an increase in demand for electrical power in the oil patch.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Gov. Jack Dalrymple has appointed his staff attorney to a judgeship in the Southeast Judicial District.  Jerod Tufte has been Dalrymple's legal counsel the past four years. He'll succeed John Paulson, who retired after serving more than 30 years on the bench.
 
     Six people applied for the job, and Tufte was among three finalists named by a nominating committee. The others were Cass County prosecutor Cherie Clark and Stutsman County prosecutor Troy LeFevre.
 
     Tufte holds a law degree from Arizona State University. He has served as a federal appeals court clerk, as an attorney with a Phoenix law firm, and as a state's attorney in Kidder and Sheridan counties. He also is a member of the National Guard and has served as legal counsel to military commanders.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - The chief federal magistrate judge in North Dakota is retiring.  U.S. Magistrate Judge Karen Klein has been on the federal bench for 30 years.  Magistrate judges typically handle initial appearances and detention hearings for defendants, as well as settlement conferences.  Klein says she will step down in January.
 
     U.S. District Judge Ralph Erickson says Klein is a nationally recognized expert in mediation and settlement who has trained hundreds of judges in those techniques.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A North Dakota town that survived a takeover attempt by a white supremacist has firmed up plans for its 105th birthday bash.  The activities in Leith on July 19 and 20 won't include anything specifically related to the end of the community's months-long clash with supremacist Craig Cobb. Town spokesman Greg Bruce says the celebration will act as a sort of closure.  Bruce says it will be a birthday celebration, and also one of a "peaceful existence."
 
     Cobb's attempt to turn Leith into an all-white enclave ended with him put on probation last spring for terrorizing and menacing residents last fall. He now lives in Sherwood.
 
     Leith's celebration will include music, historical displays, a parade, powwows, a street fair, a craft show, food and speakers.

The program is funded by the federal Interior Department and administered by the state.  North Dakota has received nearly $37 million from the program since 1965.  The next application cycle will open in October.

     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - A collection of more than 200 pieces of artwork assembled over half a century by a woman considered Minot's most ardent arts promoter will be sold at auction next week.
 
     The Taube Museum of Art and family members of the late Arlene Saugstad are making her collection available to the public in a silent auction and sale Monday and Tuesday at the museum.
 
    Saugstad died in March, two months shy of her 102nd birthday.  Her collection being auctioned includes a number of pieces by local or regional artists, including Floyd Fairweather, Susan Davy, Kelly Hendershot, Judy Bell and Judy Greenwood.
