     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A federal court jury in Fargo has convicted a Minnesota man in a drug-related homicide at a Grand Forks truck stop last year. Thirty-five-year-old Modesto Torrez, of Angus, Minnesota, was found guilty Thursday of several charges including drug counts and murder in furtherance of a drug trafficking conspiracy, after a five-day trial. He's to be sentenced Dec. 1.
 
     Torrez was accused of ordering a hit on 24-year-old Austin Forsman in March 2016. The woman accused of killing Forsman, Krystal Feist, pleaded guilty in February. U.S. Attorney Chris Myers says Torrez also led a conspiracy to traffic meth in the area. Thirteen people were indicted in connection with the ring.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The company behind the proposed Keystone XL pipeline is no longer pursuing another pipeline to carry oil from northwestern North Dakota into Canada. TransCanada Corp. on Thursday notified the U.S. State Department that it will withdraw its application for the Upland Pipeline. The project was linked to a proposed pipeline project in Canada that TransCanada is no longer pursuing.
 
     The company last spring had asked the U.S. State Department to pause its review of the Upland Pipeline. The project also would have needed approval from North Dakota regulators. The pipeline was to originate about 15 miles southwest of Williston and transport up to 300,000 barrels of crude per day north of the border.

     MANDAN, N.D. (AP) - An historic former school in Mandan is being transformed into affordable housing. The building through its history has served as the city's high school, its junior high, an elementary school and a sixth-grade academy. It closed in 2009, and earlier this year was listed on the National Register of Historic Places.  
 
     The Bismarck Tribune reports that The Commonwealth Companies, of Fond Du Lac, Wisconsin, finalized its purchase of the property in late September. The building is now undergoing asbestos abatements and interior demolition. The $6.2 million project will create 39 units of affordable housing known as Historic Apartments on 4th. Mandan's Business Development Director Ellen Huber says renovation should be in full swing after Thanksgiving.

     GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - No one was seriously hurt when a motorist hit a pedestrian and then crashed into a business in Grand Forks. Police say the driver's foot slipped off the brake and hit the gas pedal about 8 p.m. Thursday outside a Little Caesar's restaurant. The car went over a curb, hit a 17-year-old bystander and then struck the building. The teen was taken to a hospital for treatment of what authorities say was a minor injury. The driver was cited for care required.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Tourism and business officials in the Dakotas are bracing for poor pheasant hunting this fall. The worst drought in recent memory has depleted numbers of the popular game bird in the two states that are considered among the best pheasant hunting areas in the nation. Pheasants are big business in the Dakotas, drawing hundreds of thousands of hunters who spend hundreds of millions of dollars.
 
     Troy Mosbrucker is mayor of Mott, generally considered the heart of North Dakota pheasant country. He says businesses that rely on the season to get through the winter will have a tough time this year.
 
     South Dakota hunting lodge owner Stephan Stanley says smaller operators will be hurt most. He says most large commercial operations are releasing birds to boost pheasant numbers in their areas.
