    BISMARCK, N.D. - Gov. Doug Burgum today directed all government agencies to fly the POW/MIA flag in observance of POW/MIA Recognition Day.

    "We will never forget the heroes who have gone missing in action, been held prisoner or undergone unimaginable hardships while serving their country. We honor their sacred commitment to this great nation, where we celebrate many freedoms thanks to the service and sacrifice of all of the men and women in the Armed Services. We stand with the families who bear the burden of a loved one who was killed, held prisoner or remains missing, and pay tribute to the ultimate sacrifice made by thousands of men and women throughout the generations whose legacy we will never forget."

    Burgum also issued a Proclamation declaring today POW/MIA Recognition Day and urged North Dakota's citizens to observe this day by participating in events and ceremonies in their local communities.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - The trial for a Denver woman accused of shooting at law enforcement officers during a protest against the Dakota Access oil pipeline in North Dakota has been moved from Bismarck to Fargo.
 
     Red Fawn Fallis has pleaded not guilty in federal court to civil disorder, discharge of a firearm in relation to a felony crime of violence, and possession of a firearm and ammunition by a convicted felon. Authorities allege Fallis fired a gun three times at officers during a confrontation last October near a protest camp in Morton County.
 
     In granting a request by defense attorneys for a change of venue, U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland said the move is "warranted under the circumstances." The trial is scheduled to begin on Dec. 5 in Fargo.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - The Senate Judiciary committee has unanimously approved U.S. District Judge Ralph Erickson of Fargo to serve on the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. North Dakota's U.S. senators, John Hoeven and Heidi Heitkamp, announced Erickson's approval Thursday. The committee approval is the final step before the full Senate votes on Erickson's nomination.

    President Donald Trump nominated Erickson in June. He's served in various judicial positions for nearly a quarter of a century. In 2003, he was nominated by President George W. Bush and confirmed by the U.S. Senate to serve as a federal judge.

    The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals handles appeals from federal courts in the Dakotas, Arkansas, Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri and Nebraska.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota oil drillers and U.S. Sen. John Hoeven want federal geologists to reevaluate the amount of recoverable crude in the state, saying a new assessment likely would show stronger production potential and attract investment. The U.S. Geological Survey once said two massive shale formations found in North Dakota held the largest continuous oil accumulation it ever assessed. But the title was given to a formation in Texas' Permian Basin last year.
