The Grand Forks Air Force Base says the military is investigating allegations of misconduct involving a proficiency test.....

     GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - The Grand Forks Air Force Base says the military is investigating allegations of misconduct involving a proficiency test.  A statement issued through the base says an airman "possessed images of test material" and shared it with other airmen. Officials have not determined how much of the test was obtained or whether the test was taken by anyone after it was shared.
     The statement says "at no time was safety, security or effectiveness of the air traffic control mission ever in jeopardy."  Officials say the airmen allegedly involved in the incident are not being scheduled for air traffic control duties at this time.
     The Air Force is sending a three-member team of air traffic control experts to Grand Forks to inspect the base training programs.  No further information was available.


     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota attorney general says a phone scam targeting customers of a Minot utility company is a "blatant attempt" by thieves to steal credit card numbers and personal information. Some customers of Verendrye Electric Cooperative are getting phone calls claiming they'll be disconnected because of an overdue balance.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem says city councils from Belfield and Crosby violated the state's open meetings laws with discussions that took place during executive sessions.
     Stenehjem says the Belfield city council violated the law when it went into executive session to talk to the city attorney about potential liability concerns and also discussed general personnel issues and took final action to fire an officer.
     The attorney general says the Crosby council made a mistake when it held a closed-door meeting to consult with its attorney and discussed the possible overcompensation of two city employees and policies to avoid potential future overpayments.  The council then voted on a motion made during the session but did not disclose the contents of the motion or engage in further discussion.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Governor Jack Dalrymple is asking the White House for a disaster declaration to free up money for nine North Dakota counties and the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation, which were hit hard by June storms. Some areas got up to a foot of rain and officials estimate more than $1 million damage to public infrastructure.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - The top federal prosecutors in the Dakotas are sponsoring a three-day conference next week on human trafficking and related crimes. They say not enough people in the two states realize it's not just an overseas problem -- that there are homegrown victims too. They say the sex trade is driving much of the problem.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A Moorhead, Minnesota lawyer who was suspended by the Minnesota Supreme Court is facing a similar ban in North Dakota.  Joan LaRae Meidinger was suspended in Minnesota for a minimum of six months for failing to cooperate with a disciplinary investigation. Officials say a panel wanted to ask her about a complaint from a former client, and she failed to respond.  Meidinger filed notice in federal court earlier this week that she would not contest the suspension in North Dakota. A final order has not been issued.

Construction continues on the remaining 25 miles.

     GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - Grand Forks-based Altru Health System has named its next president.  Eric Lunn is Altru's chief medical executive.
