North Dakota oil drillers and U.S. Sen. John Hoeven want federal geologists to reevaluate the amount of recoverable crude oil in the state....

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota oil drillers and U.S. Sen. John Hoeven want federal geologists to reevaluate the amount of recoverable crude oil in the state. Hoeven and industry officials say a new assessment by the U.S. Geological Survey likely would show stronger production potential and attract investment.

    Hoeven wants the USGS to take into account other formations in western North Dakota's oil patch that could be exploited using technology developed for the Bakken and the Three Forks directly below it.

    The USGS once said two massive shale formations held the largest continuous oil accumulation it ever assessed, but the title was given to a formation in Texas' Permian Basin last year. A USGS spokesman says no decision has been made on whether to do a new study.

     MINOT AIR FORCE BASE, N.D. (AP) - Defense Secretary Jim Mattis delivered a subtle message with his visit to a North Dakota nuclear weapons base: America is a mature nuclear power not intimidated by threats from an upstart North Korean leader who flaunts his emerging nuclear muscle.

    Mattis on Wednesday inspected a mock-up nuclear warhead, but there was no Kim Jong Un-like posing for photographs. He chatted with nuclear missile launch officers in their underground command post, but there was no talk of unleashing nuclear hell on North Korea.

    Mattis cast his visit as part of an effort to ensure that the U.S. maintains the kind of nuclear firepower that convinces any potential nuclear opponent that attacking would be suicidal.

    The Pentagon chief is getting classified briefings Thursday at Strategic Command, just outside of Omaha, Nebraska.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A Twin Buttes man has been found guilty of molesting three girls, all under the age of 12. A federal jury convicted 73-year-old Lonnie Dale Spotted Bear on four assault charges Thursday following a three-day trial. The U.S. Attorney's Office says the abuse of the three girls took place over a five-year period. Prosecutors say Spotted Bear tried to intimidate the girls' guardians when he learned two of his victims disclosed his assaults. Sentencing is scheduled Dec. 20 in Bismarck.

    MANDAN, N.D. - Morton County authorities are looking for the public's help in a case of numerous road signs that have been shot with shotguns and handguns in recent days. The Morton County Sheriff's Department would like the public to be vigilant when traveling along county roads, reporting any suspicious activity immediately. The damage to the signs has occurred primarily in the Glen Ullin and Almont areas. The signs cost taxpayers approximately $200-$250 per sign to replace.

    "Shooting road signs is unlawful, expensive and dangerous," Sheriff Kyle Kirchmeier said. "Not only does it cause a risk for motorists relying on those signs, but a ricocheting or stray bullet is very dangerous."

    Vandalizing a road sign is a Class B misdemeanor with a fine of $500 and up to 30 days in jail.
