     NEW TOWN, N.D. (AP) - Authorities have identified a man whose body was pulled from the Missouri River near the 4 Bears Casino Marina at New Town.  Three Affiliated Tribes police tell KXMC-TV that 31-year-old Daniel Mossett had been missing since last November. Police say Mossett had been living in New Town but had family in Twin Buttes.  His body was discovered Monday morning, and taken to the state medical examiner's office in Bismarck for an autopsy. The investigation is continuing.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A North Dakota oil tax fund is about to top $2 billion.  The Legacy Fund gets 30 percent of the state's oil tax collections. The money cannot be touched before 2017 and it would still take a two-thirds vote of the Legislature to dip into it.  North Dakota voters approved the fund in 2010. It received its first deposit of $34.3 million in September 2011.  
 
     State Treasurer Kelly Schmidt says this month's transfer of $81.7 million will put the account over the $2 billion mark. The fund is on pace to reach $3 billion by the end of the 2013-15 biennium.

     WASHINGTON (AP) - An Air Force document obtained by The Associated Press says armed security forces at a nuclear missile base failed a drill last summer that simulated the hostile takeover of a missile launch silo.  It says the security troops failed to speedily regain control of the captured nuclear weapon.
 
     The previously unreported failure - which the Air Force called a "critical deficiency" - was the reason the 341st Missile Wing at Malmstrom Air Force Base in Montana flunked its broader safety and security inspection.
 
     The partially censored document obtained by the AP did not fully explain the problem. It said the security team did not take "all lawful actions necessary to immediately regain control" of the silo. A do-over of the test two months later was performed without any reported problems.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Rates of serious crimes in North Dakota' capital city in 2013 dropped from the previous year.  The most serious personal crime categories in Bismarck dropped nearly 9 percent compared to 2012, and serious property crime also dropped about 9 percent. Calls for service decreased 6 percent.  Police Chief Dan Donlin says an increased crime prevention effort is one of the reasons.
 
     However, there were some numbers of concern. Arrests increased 21 percent, drug violations were up 12 percent, and weapons violations were up 54 percent. Donlin says officers are seeing an increase in weapons.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A North Dakota senator says two airports in the state will receive a combined $400,000 in federal funding.  U.S. Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, D-North Dakota, says the airport in Watford City will receive more than $327,000. Dunseith will receive nearly $86,000 for its airport.
 
     The Watford City funds will be used to rehabilitate the pavement at the existing airport apron, where planes are parked and refueled.  The Dunseith funds will be used to repair the pavement on the airport taxiway to minimize foreign object debris.

     WEST FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A Fargo woman was arrested for driving under the influence after police say she crashed her sport utility vehicle into a BNSF Railway train in West Fargo.
 
     KFGO radio reports that the crash happened shortly after 1:30 a.m. today. The SUV was heavily damaged but the 21-year-old female driver and a passenger escaped injury.  Police Sgt. Jason Dura says the train had just refueled and had not yet regained speed, likely saving the SUV's occupants.  Dura says there was no apparent damage to the train and no one on the train was hurt.

     ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - An administrative law judge has ruled that tribal treaties don't give the Chippewa Indians the right to decide where a crude oil pipeline should be located in northern Minnesota.
 
     An environmental group says the Chippewa should have a say in the location of Enbridge Energy's proposed pipeline that would carry crude oil from North Dakota to Superior, Wisconsin. Honor the Earth says the pipeline could harm the tribe's right to fish, hunt and gather wild rice in ceded, off-reservation territory.
 
     The Star Tribune says Judge Eric Lipman has ruled an 1855 treaty ceding Chippewa land in Minnesota to the U.S. government doesn't forbid creating a new right of way on the land that was sold. Enbridge attorney Christine Brusven argued there is no precedent for the plaintiffs' request.
