A Michigan man is dead in a semitrailer accident in the North Dakota oil patch....

     WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - A Michigan man is dead in a semitrailer accident in the North Dakota oil patch. The Highway Patrol says 69-year-old Clarence Cunningham, of Grand Rapids, Michigan, was run over by his own truck about 8 a.m. Sunday at a rural well site. The circumstances of the incident aren't clear. The patrol says it appears the truck began to roll after Cunningham got out, and he was run over when he tried to get back into the truck and fell off the running board.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Officials in North Dakota have arranged for tons of donated hay for drought-impacted ranchers in the Dakotas and Montana. Now they need truckers to haul it.

    North Dakota's Agriculture Department, North Dakota State University and the Michigan-based nonprofit Ag Community Relief earlier this month announced a program to accept hay donations at a site near the Fargo campus. The hay will be distributed through a lottery drawing next month.     North Dakota Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring says about 30 semitrailer loads of hay have been donated. His agency is looking for help hauling it to the Fargo site.

    There is heavy interest in the hay lottery. The department has received more than 800 applications from ranchers in the three states.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Development Fund board in July awarded a total of nearly $2.5 million in financial aid to five projects. The loan program within the state Commerce Department was created in 1991 to help new or expanding primary sector businesses - those such as manufacturers and food processors that create new wealth.

    The largest loan award last month was $1.5 million for a soybean crushing plant at Spiritwood. Smaller loans or lines of credit went to an agricultural technology business in Wahpeton, a Fargo technology company, a Fargo fitness products company and a Fargo daycare.

     WAHPETON, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota State College of Science has removed its smokestack as part of a wider project that included demolition within its central heating plant. The Wahpeton Daily News reports that the school reaffirmed its commitment to converting from coal heat to natural gas on Aug. 9.

    Executive Director of Facilities Management Dallas Fossum says the cost of the project is about $700,000. He says space within the central heating plant will be used as a warehouse. Fossum says the school is currently working to make its natural gas machinery more efficient.

    The school's smokestack was built in 1979. In January 2016, the school stopped using the smokestack as a primary heating source.

     MOORHEAD, Minn. (AP) - A Minnesota veteran who lost his sight after roadside bomb exploded while he was serving in Iraq has a new home. The Homes For Our Troops group gave Eric Marts the key for a new house during a ceremony Saturday in Moorhead. Marts and his wife, Bobbie, had been living in trailer park along with Eric's guide dog, Deacon.

    Marts has a radio show on WDAY-AM in Fargo that is dedicated to improving the lives of veterans.

    Marts was a guest of Sen. Heidi Heitkamp from North Dakota during the State of the Union address in 2014. Heitkamp says that Marts is "humble beyond belief" and nobody is more deserving of a new house.
