     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A spill of about 10 barrels of a petroleum product has been reported near Charlson, in northwestern McKenzie County.  The state Health Department on Friday said about 10 gallons of oil or natural gas condensate reached Sand Creek, which is a tributary to Lake Sakakawea.
 
     North Dakota Water Quality Director Karl Rockeman says the spill was reported Thursday. He says the source of the spill appears to be from an underground oil or natural gas pipeline.  Rockeman says booms and absorbents are in place on Sand Creek to keep the fluid away from the lake, which about 13 miles downstream.  Rockeman says there are several pipelines in the area. He says it is unclear who is responsible.  Rockeman says crews from Tesoro Corp. and Hess Corp. are doing the cleanup.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's ban on gay marriage is awaiting an almost inevitable legal challenge. Now leaders in the conservative state must decide whether to spend some of its vast oil riches on a court fight - a step they already took to defend restrictions on abortion.
 
     Six same-sex couples sued South Dakota this week over that state's ban. That left North Dakota as the only state not currently facing a lawsuit against its prohibition on gay weddings. Advocates for overturning the ban say it's a question of when, not if, one is filed.
 
     And, considering the riches of the state's oil boon, North Dakota could be ready for the battle.  A former legislator who pushed for the ban says he's confident the state would appeal.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The state Game and Fish Department during Memorial Day week is relaxing camping restrictions on some wildlife management areas in western North Dakota and along Lake Sakakawea.
 
     The restrictions the past couple of years are a response to the oil boom in the region and are aimed at ensuring the areas are available for hunters and anglers. Rules are posted at entry points.
 
     Game and Fish is lifting the Tuesday-Wednesday camping restriction on many wildlife management areas this week. The same waiver will apply during the Fourth of July and Labor Day holiday weeks.  All other public use regulations for state wildlife management areas still apply.
 
     A list of the sites with waivers and those where camping is still prohibited every day of the week can be found at http://www.gf.nd.gov .

     DETROIT (AP) - People in North Dakota who are grilling this weekend may want to take note of a ground beef recall. A Michigan company called Wolverine Packing is recalling 1.8 million pounds of beef because it could be contaminated with E. coli. The meat may have been shipped to stores in North Dakota and nine other states. A few people have gotten sick.
