An Idaho man has been convicted of killing a man outside a strip club in the North Dakota oil patch hub of Williston......

     WAHPETON, N.D. (AP) - An Idaho man has been convicted of killing a man outside a strip club in the North Dakota oil patch hub of Williston.  The Wahpeton Daily News reports that 46-year-old Jonathan Horvath was found guilty Wednesday of murder, two counts of terrorizing and one count of reckless endangerment.  A sentencing date has not been set.
 
     Horvath was on trial in Wahpeton, where the case was moved because of extensive media coverage in Williston. He's accused of killing 28-year-old Derrick Spiegel of Williston in March 2013.  Authorities say Spiegel was killed on a sidewalk outside a strip club following an argument.  The reckless endangerment charge stems from Horvath allegedly firing into the bar. No one was hurt.

     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - Minot residents are being asked to help identify properties in the city that need cleanup from contamination.  The Minot Daily News reports that the city and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency are sponsoring a brownfields program project that involves assessing properties that potentially pose contamination.
 
     A brownfield site is property where expansion or redevelopment is complicated by a hazardous substance, pollutant or contaminant.  The city already has placed 37 properties on the list to be reviewed.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - An independent report that includes a study of facilities on North Dakota college campuses shows that the state is $808 million behind on deferred maintenance costs, but there may be other ways the schools can utilize space.
 
     The state Board of Higher Education is working with Paulien & Associates of Denver on a system-wide master plan that includes the building study. Company president Dan Paulien says the state needs to take "a real leap" to address the problem.
 
     The survey shows that North Dakota State University has the most number of buildings in critical condition, including a laboratory that has no running water.
 
     Higher education board chairwoman Kirsten Diederich calls the $808 million figure "alarming," but says the space utilization study will help narrow down the board's 2015 budget proposal.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's attorney general says school districts are stuck with any budgeting mistakes they make and fail to correct before Oct. 10 of each year.
 
     Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem says in a legal opinion that school districts can't amend their budgets when a statutory deadline prohibits it, even if they are making the amendment because of a clerical or human error.
 
     The opinion was written in response to a request made by McLean County State's Attorney Ladd Erickson.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A man convicted for a drive-by shooting in Moorhead, Minnesota, nearly 15 years ago had second thoughts at a change of plea hearing in North Dakota on illegal weapons charges.
 
     Richard Carillo is charged in federal court with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and possession of an unregistered firearm. Authorities say he was in possession of a sawed-off shotgun.
 
     Carillo appeared in court Wednesday for a change of plea hearing, but told a judge he wanted to talk to his family before making a decision. He is scheduled for trial on Aug. 19.
 
     Carillo has several felony convictions, including one for shooting at a group of people in Moorhead's Romkey Park in 1999. Authorities say the shooting was gang-related.
