      FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Occupational Safety and Health Administration officials say a Fargo business has been cited for a serious violation following the death of a man in a work-related accident in February.
 
     OSHA Area Director Eric Brooks tells KFGO radio that Custom Truck and Auto Shine Inc. is facing a $12,000 penalty, the maximum for the violation that involves an employee being struck by a moving vehicle.
 
     Forty-one-year-old Nathan Martinson, of Fargo, was pinned between two trucks after a co-worker backed out of a garage and didn't know Martinson was there. Martinson died at a hospital emergency room.
 
     The company has until August 28th to decide how to respond. It can pay the penalty, negotiate a settlement or appeal the citation. The business declined comment to The Associated Press.

     ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - A North Dakota man is accused of scamming Minnesota public programs out of more than $300,000. The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports that 45-year-old Elfonzo Shelby is charged in Ramsey County with identify theft and theft by swindle.

    Authorities say Shelby used both fake and actual identities to scam the Minnesota Department of Human Services general assistance and food stamp programs in Hennepin, Renville and Ramsey counties for more than six years. As part of the scheme, investigators say Shelby sent phony surveys to inmates at a correctional facility in Mississippi. In exchange for filling them out, Shelby promised each $45. Then he used the information to apply for government benefits that he pocketed.

    Shelby's public defender, Terrance Hendricks, could not be immediately reached for comment.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A Minnesota man has been sentenced to seven years in prison for the death of a woman whose body was found west of Fargo in December. KFGO radio reports that 45-year-old Timothy Barr, of Lakeville, Minnesota admitted to backing over Michelle Newell of Vadnais Heights, Minnesota. He pleaded guilty to leaving the scene. A manslaughter charge was dismissed.

    Barr allegedly told informants that he argued with Newell over methamphetamine and accidentally ran her over before disposing of her body. Barr eventually led investigators to where he left the body.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Gov. Doug Burgum has declared a severe summer storm disaster for Bowman, Dunn and Slope counties. Burgum is also asking the Federal Emergency Management Agency for additional time to request a major disaster declaration.

    On July 20 and 21, a series of severe thunderstorms in western North Dakota produced large hail and wind gusts of up to 73 mph, toppling power lines, causing significant damage to farm and ranch buildings, endangering livestock and damaging or destroying equipment.

    The storm caused substantial damage for member-owned rural electric cooperatives and compounded problems for farmers and ranchers in those three counties. Producers are expected to suffer major losses because of extreme and exceptional drought conditions.

    The declaration directs state officials to coordinate with federal agencies to make recovery programs available.
