     BISMARCK, N.D. (PNS) - A group of retired military leaders says it's a matter of national security to improve the health and education of children, the country's future soldiers. "Mission: Readiness" is a group of some 400 retired generals, admirals and senior military leaders, including retired Brig. Gen. Denny Shulstad.

     "What we are trying to do is encourage young people to, number one, get a good education," Shulstad says. "Stay out of trouble with the law, and stay in some reasonable physical shape so that you are eligible to join the military."

     The growing number of young people who are overweight or obese is of great concern to the military, he says, because many potential recruits are not healthy enough to enlist.  Schulstad says one way to reverse the trend and help get kids moving toward a healthier lifestyle is promote and support programs that help provide them with safe routes to school.

     "Today, only 13 percent of the young people either ride their bike or walk to school. We would very much like to see that number increase, because that is a very easy way to encourage kids to get outside, to walk, to run, to ride their bicycles," Shulstad says. "And to do that, you need to have safe routes."

     According to the Centers for Disease Prevention and Control, over the past 30 years obesity among adolescents has quadrupled.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Four women were taken into custody after a weekend incident in which they allegedly tried to steal more than $1,000 worth of clothing from a Fargo mall and then struck a security guard with their getaway vehicle.
 
     WDAY-TV reports that all four women were arrested Saturday night on a charge of felony shoplifting, and the driver of the vehicle also was arrested on a reckless endangerment charge. Formal charges were pending.   The guard was not seriously hurt and refused medical attention. The women drove off after allegedly hitting the guard and were later stopped and arrested on Interstate 94 across the Minnesota border.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Organizers say more than 4,500 people attended a three-day event in Bismarck highlighting the state's booming oil patch.  The Williston Basin Petroleum Conference and Expo was held last week at the Bismarck Civic Center.   The North Dakota Petroleum Council says people came from 48 states and countries as far as France, Norway and Nigeria.  Sheri Grossman with the Bismarck-Mandan Convention and Visitors Bureau estimated the expo injected about $2.5 million into the local economy.

     POWERS LAKE, N.D. (AP) - Officials in Powers Lake have broken ground for a $7 million school addition.   The new wing will be attached to the high school in the oil patch community, and an old, inefficient elementary school eventually will be closed. School Board President Roger Helseth tells The Bismarck Tribune that officials one day hope to add a gymnasium.
 
     The project drew headlines earlier this spring when students pitched in pennies to try to help bridge a $1 million shortfall in funding. Principal Sue Gunderson says some adults chipped in and there is now $280,000 in the fund.   Loans, grants and a bond issue approved by voters last October are helping pay for the project made necessary by rapid growth. Elementary school enrollment has nearly tripled in four years.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The state director in North Dakota for the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Rural Development agency has been tabbed to lead a nationwide initiative.   Jasper Schneider will lead USDA's Community and Economic Development initiative. Agriculture Under Secretary for Rural Development Doug O'Brien appointed Schneider.   The goal of the initiative is to extend Rural Development's reach, focusing on underserved areas, tribal regions and counties with high poverty rates.

     DICKINSON, N.D. (AP) - Seniors at Trinity High School in Dickinson returned to their fire-damaged school to graduate - something many didn't think would be possible.   The school was heavily damaged in a March 3 fire that authorities believe was intentionally set by then-principal Thomas Sander. Students finished out the school year in classes at temporary locations across Dickinson.
 
     Allison Steffan told KXMB-TV it was comforting to come back into the building one last time for Sunday's commencement ceremony.   Allison Meyer said the fire has been a lesson in overcoming challenges - something she plans to apply to her personal life.
 
     Sander has pleaded not guilty to charges of arson and endangerment by fire. His trial is scheduled to begin July 23.   Classes at the school are expected to resume in the fall.
