An autopsy report for a North Dakota college student who was missing for two months says he died from a gunshot wound to the head.....

     WAHPETON, N.D. (AP) - An autopsy report for a North Dakota college student who was missing for two months says he died from a gunshot wound to the head.  The North Dakota College of Science released the final autopsy report for 20-year-old Andrew Sadek on Saturday.  The manner of death for Sadek has been ruled as undetermined. The toxicology drug screen was negative.
     Sadek, of Rogers, Minnesota left his dorm at the North Dakota State College of Science the in the early morning of May 1st. Authorities had searched for the student for several days in May.  Police pulled his body from the Red River near Breckenridge, Minnesota in late June.
     The school says that the case will continue to be handled as an open investigation. A weapon has not been found.


     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - Police in Minot say two women and a man have been arrested at a Minot hotel in a prostitution case.  Authorities say an investigation revealed that 27-year-old Michelle Harris and 33-year-old Kimberly Jones were in Minot Saturday to sell sex. Police say 39-year-old Jason Aycock solicited the women based on an internet ad. Officers located the three people in a Select Inn hotel room in which they also found drug paraphernalia.
     Harris, of Milwaukee, and Jones, of Minot, were arrested on one count each of prostitution. Jones was also charged with possession of drug paraphernalia other than marijuana. Both were transported to the Ward County Jail.  Aycock is facing an initial charge of solicitation of prostitution.

     POWERS LAKE, N.D. (AP) - Residents in Powers Lake are concerned about a proposed oil transport facility that they say would be built too close to the city and the lake.  The Minot Daily News reports that Powers Lake Trading and Transport Company is planning to build the facility.
     Resident Jake Douts says he's worried the facility is too close to the local school. He says the transport facility will bring heavy truck traffic and accidents. He has been on the city ambulance squad for 35 years.  Douts say most residents aren't opposed to the facility, just where the company plans to build it.
     Douts says people think the proposed building is also too close to a main watershed.  Other residents say they want more information before the project moves forward.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Law enforcement authorities in North Dakota say the military weapons they have are rarely used and are largely defensive in nature.  North Dakota Highway Patrol Captain Bryan Niewind is the head of the statewide emergency response team. He tells the Bismarck Tribune that when officers resort to use special weapons and gear, the top reason is their own safety.
     Law enforcement's use of military weaponry has drawn scrutiny following the unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, that stemmed from the fatal police shooting of an unarmed black man.
     Niewind says his team's recent deployment to Leith to provide crowd control amid the controversy over a white supremacist was the first such deployment he can recall in over a decade.
     Bismarck Police Chief Dan Donlin says the equipment can save officers' lives if used correctly.

     GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - Workers at the J.R. Simplot Company potato processing plant in Grand Forks have reached a contract agreement with the company after being on strike for almost three weeks.  KFGO-AM reports union members agreed to the latest contract Friday afternoon. Nearly 200 union employees walked off the job August 4th.
     Employees will now work 12-hour shifts with a limit of 14 hours, but they'll work fewer days per week. They previously worked five eight-hour days without a cap.  The contract takes effect immediately, but it will take until October to get all shift logistics ironed out.  Union officials say both sides had to make compromises to reach a deal.
     Simplot is based in Boise, Idaho. The Grand Forks plant makes french fries and other potato products for fast food restaurants.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Officials in Fargo say fire fighters rescued two cats from an apartment that caught on fire Saturday night when the tenant was away.  Battalion Chief Craig Nelson says the incident was reported around 9 p.m. Saturday. All building occupants were evacuated safely and nobody was injured.
     Nelson says one of the cats was given oxygen therapy in an ambulance and taken to an animal emergency clinic. He says the second cat appeared to be fine.  The blaze was contained to one apartment. Its cause is under investigation.  Nineteen fire fighters, five engines, one truck and two command vehicles responded to the incident.

     DICKINSON, N.D. (AP) - Students, teachers and school officials at a Catholic school in Dickinson say they're ready to return to their school that was abruptly closed after someone set fire to it in March.
     The Bismarck Tribune reports that students at Trinity High School will start classes in their school today.  The school will use some temporary classrooms for the time being until the school decides how to proceed.  President Steve Glasser says it may be time to combine two elementary schools with the high school.
     Former Principal Thomas Sander was accused of setting fire to the school in March. A judge in July dismissed the charges almost a week after he ruled that statements the defendant made to police were improperly obtained and couldn't be used at his trial.

     BEULAH, N.D. (AP) - The congregation of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Beulah is crediting its dramatic growth in membership to the state's oil boom.  The Bismarck Tribune reports the Mormon church had an average attendance of 34 people in 2011, but these days the congregation has 247 members, with an average attendance of 130 people every Sunday.  The newspaper reports that most of the new members have moved to North Dakota from Utah, Idaho, Wyoming and California.
     The congregation's growth has led to the construction of a new 6,100-square-foot meetinghouse, which saw its first service in April. The original was built in 1979 and had a maximum capacity of 86 people.  The Beulah branch serves members from Stanton, Hazen, Underwood, Beulah, Halliday, Hebron and Glen Ullin.

     VALLEY CITY, N.D. (AP) - According to the owner, small-town living is what allows a North Dakota coffee shop to operate on the honor system.  David Brekke is owner of The Vault in Valley City, a town of about 6,700 people. He renovated a nearly 100-year-old bank building and cut down on overhead by cutting out baristas. Customers can choose from Keurig single-serving coffees, java from a commercial brewer and soft drinks.
     Since the shop opened in October, people have left 15 percent more money than the asking price.  Customers can pay by credit card, cash or check. There are security cameras, but Brekke says there hasn't been much to view.
     Fourteen-year-old Nita Warcken says she likes to visit a place where there's not someone "hovering over you all the time."

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Former Game and Fish Department director Dean Hildebrand and longtime employee Gene Van Eeckhout have been inducted into the North Dakota Fishing Hall of Fame.
     Hildebrand headed Game and Fish from 1996 until his retirement in 2005. He died in 2008. He was instrumental in developing Save Our Lakes, a program that focuses on restoring at-risk fisheries.
     Van Eeckhout is the agency's southeast district fisheries supervisor and a 38-year veteran of the department. He was cited for his unselfish dedication to his job and community.
     The North Dakota Fishing Hall of Fame is located in Garrison.
