President Barack Obama will make his first ever visit to North Dakota next week....

     WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama will make his first ever visit to North Dakota next week.  It will also be his first trip to Indian Country as president.
 
     Obama says he and first lady Michelle Obama will visit the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe in Cannonball. He says the reservation holds a special place in U.S. history because Chief Sitting Bull lived there.
 
     Obama says he's worked to strengthen justice, infrastructure and health care for Native Americans. But he also laments high Indian poverty rates and says he wants to hear firsthand about their challenges. He'll announce new initiatives during the visit to grow Indian economies.
 
     Obama visited the Crow Nation in Montana reservation as a presidential candidate, but hasn't been back to Indian country since. He vowed last year to return in 2014.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The nation's top law enforcement official is making a rare visit to North Dakota.  U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder is the keynote speaker today at a tribal conference on the campus of United Tribes Technical College in Bismarck.
 
     North Dakota U.S. Timothy Purdon says it's the first time a sitting attorney general has visited Bismarck since Robert F. Kennedy addressed the National Congress of American Indians in September 1963.  Purdon says Holder's visit is fitting because the Department of Justice is committed to improving public safety on reservations.
 
     Holder is scheduled to speak at 2 pm at the James Henry Community Center on the UTTC campus.

     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - DNA evidence might be key to solving the mysterious killing of a Minot State University student seven years ago.  Anita Knutson was found stabbed to death in her apartment on June 4, 2007. Investigators were unable to solve the crime and it now is officially classified as a cold case.
 
     Authorities did recover some DNA evidence. Police Lt. Jason Sundbakken tells KXMC-TV that if the killer should ever get arrested for another crime and have his or her DNA put into a national database, that could be the break investigators need.  Sundbakken also says that with many cold cases, "it is just a matter of getting lucky with a tip."

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Game and Fish Department has lifted a burn ban on the Oahe Wildlife Management Area south of Bismarck-Mandan.
 
     Officials prohibited open burning earlier this spring because of the potential for wildfires in the heavily wooded recreation area along the Missouri River. Game and Fish has now lifted the burn ban on property it manages, though any county burn restrictions will still apply.
 
     The Oahe Wildlife Management Area covers more than 25 square miles in Burleigh, Emmons, and Morton counties. The area is popular among anglers, campers and other outdoor recreationists.

     Nursing division director of graduate and distance education Dr. Billie Madler says the new program will help address the shortage of primary care professionals in the state and amplify the university's educational opportunities.  The first doctoral class is expected to graduate in May 2016.
