    BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A judge has dismissed a terrorizing charge against a Watford City woman accused of threatening the family of now-Lt. Gov. Brent Sanford. The Bismarck Tribune reports that Northwest District Judge Daniel El-Dweek on Thursday said there wasn't enough probable cause to support the felony charge against 79-year-old Alice Olson. His decision came after a hearing that included police testimony.
 
     Olson was accused of making threatening statements last October to the family of Sanford, who at the time was mayor of Watford City. Defense attorney Markus Powell said the incident was "a misunderstanding between neighbors."
 
     Sanford declined to comment through a spokesman for the governor's office.

     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - A Minot man accused of shooting his 5-year-old stepdaughter in the leg with a BB gun as a form of punishment has pleaded not guilty to a felony child abuse charge. Twenty-eight-year-old Jacob Hill maintains that he was trying to shoot a mouse when the girl was hit by a pellet that ricocheted. Authorities say the girl told them that Hill shot her for "being mean" to her 2-year-old sister. The Minot Daily News reports that Hill faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A suspect in a large-scale Jamaican lottery scam accused of bilking mostly elderly Americans out of millions of dollars has pleaded not guilty in U.S. District Court.
 
     Gregory Gooden was arrested in Jamaica on June 6 and brought to the U.S. last week. He entered his not guilty plea Tuesday in federal court in North Dakota, where the case is being prosecuted.
 
     There are 15 suspects, but it's unclear how many be included in a January trial. The alleged mastermind, Lavrick Willocks, recently pleaded guilty, another suspect is set to plead guilty in October, and prosecutors are negotiating plea deals with other suspects.
 
     Authorities say at least 90 victims lost more than $5.7 million to the scam, including a North Dakota woman who lost her life savings.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum and Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring are hosting a public drought meeting in Mott on Monday. The meeting is from 5-8:30 p.m. Mountain time at the Knights of Columbus building. The two state officials will speak and take questions beginning about 6 p.m.
 
     The latest U.S. Drought Monitor map shows 82 percent of the state in some stage of drought. Most of central and western North Dakota remains in extreme or exceptional drought, the two worst categories. Both the state and federal governments have declared disasters in hard-hit drought areas, paving the way for various sources of aid for farmers and ranchers.
