     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's bill for policing protests of the Dakota Access pipeline continues to rise. The North Dakota Emergency Commission is set to borrow an additional $5 million today to cover law enforcement costs. That will bring the total line of credit from the state-owned bank of North Dakota to $39 million. State Emergency Services spokeswoman Cecily Fong says 11 states provided law enforcement help to North Dakota, and some bills are only now arriving.
 
     The $3.8 billion pipeline built by Texas-based Energy Transfer Partners began moving oil from North Dakota to a distribution point in Illinois in June, after months of protests. The Emergency Commission also is set to approve a $10 million federal grant to help pay state law enforcement bills related to the protests.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Construction is nearly complete on the first phase of rebuilding the main runway at the Bismarck Airport. The Bismarck Tribune reports that contractors will wrap up the first phase of the runway overhaul in mid-October. That phase involves replacing 2,200 feet of old asphalt.
 
     The city has approved the contracts for the second phase, which concentrates on 5,500 feet in the midsection of the runway. The second phase is expected to begin next spring. Airport Director Greg Haug says the project will provide "50 years of great runway."
 
     The runway rebuilding is part of an effort to upgrade the entire airport to keep up with rising passenger numbers. The entire airport upgrade could come to about $65 million.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A Bismarck police officer teamed up with his friend from the Fargo police force to give his father a surprise he'll likely never forget.
 
     Damien Girodat's dad was expecting a ticket when he was pulled over while driving in Fargo recently with Girodat and his daughter-in-law. The Fargo officer told him something was wrong with his tail light. Then the officer gave Gary Girodat the citation that would change his life.
 
     He was cited for "driving like a grandpa" and along with the ticket was given an ultrasound of his future grandchild. The court date on the ticket was the due date for his grandchild's arrival. After absorbing the happy news, the officer told grandpa-to-be his tail light was just fine.
