The state of Missouri has denied a request to supervise the probation of a white supremacist who unsuccessfully tried to take control of a small North Dakota town.....

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The state of Missouri has denied a request to supervise the probation of a white supremacist who unsuccessfully tried to take control of a small North Dakota town.
 
     Sixty-two-year-old Craig Cobb was sentenced to four years of probation in April for terrorizing residents of Leith, where he'd tried to establish an all-white enclave. The Missouri native said during his sentencing that he wanted to return to that state to care for his elderly mother.
 
     North Dakota Corrections Department spokesman Tim Tausend says Missouri denied Cobb's request because "he has had little or no contact with his mother for the past 40 years."  Tausend says Cobb has been living in Bismarck since his release from jail, where he spent nearly half a year before reaching a probation deal with prosecutors.

     HOUSTON (AP) - GOP governors from oil-and-gas rich states say new EPA rules designed to cut global warming pollution from power plants by 30 percent by 2030 will kill jobs and growth.  Texas Gov. Rick Perry hosted Wyoming Gov. Matt Mead, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and North Dakota Gov. Jack Dalrymple in Houston today.
 
     The governors say they will use a public comment period to express reservations. But Mead and the others also say they do not rule out a lawsuit if the rules are not modified. They say the EPA has overstepped its authority.
 
     These governors joined five others in a letter sent today to President Barack Obama that says data shows "millions of jobs will be lost and billions of dollars will be spent" to comply with the federal regulations.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A group of Red River diversion opponents who have filed a federal lawsuit against the planned flood control project are pleading their case in Minnesota state court as well.
 
     The Richland-Wilkin Joint Powers Authority is made up of representatives from about 20 cities and townships. The complaint that was lodged in federal court in September asks the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to come up with a cheaper project that doesn't flood farmland.
 
     The state lawsuit filed Friday says it doesn't make sense for the Red River Diversion Authority to begin construction of a ring dike around communities south of Fargo until the state of Minnesota finishes its review on possible environmental impacts.
 
     Congress has authorized the nearly $2 billion diversion, but must pass separate legislation to pay for it.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Police in Fargo are looking for a 31-year-old man who they accuse of starting a deck fire at an apartment over the weekend.  Police say an arrest warrant has been issued for the man on charges of arson, terrorizing and criminal trespass.
 
     Authorities say the Fargo man started the fire at his ex-wife's apartment on Sunday. They say the blaze did not cause any interior damage, but affected the deck.
 
     Police say the man had previously told his ex-wife that we would "napalm" her apartment. Police say officers responded to the same address hours after the fire for a report of a possible burglary. The woman told police she saw the man inside the apartment.

    BISMARCK, ND (PNS) - Less cigarette smoking, soda drinking and physical fighting, but more time at computers and other tech devices. That's the snapshot from the new Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Youth Risk Behavior survey.

    The government goal of reducing teen smoking nationally to less than 16 percent has been met. CDC director Tom Frieden noted that it's a fragile victory, however, at 15.7 percent. And it comes with the rise in popularity of e-cigarettes, smoking pens and electronic hookahs.

    "No kid should be exposed to advertising that glorifies the use of nicotine," said Friden. "Or be able to easily buy e-cigarettes because their sales haven't been restricted."  Frieden said he's also concerned about poor diets among teens.

    The study also found that most young people are spending fewer hours watching TV, but more time in front of a computer for non-school reasons.

    Stephanie Zaza is director of the division of adolescent and school health at the CDC. She said the center has a lot of great data, but they don't know why kids do the things they do. She found it alarming that 41 percent of teen drivers admit to texting or e-mailing while driving. She urged parents to take steps to stop behavior that takes a teen's attention away from the road.

    "Parents play an active role in keeping their teen drivers safe," said Zaza, "by close monitoring, frequent discussions, parent-teen driving agreements, and acting as a role model of good driving habits."

    The CDC study also found that vehicle accidents cause 23 percent of deaths among 10-to-24-year-olds, making it the biggest killer of teens and young adults.
