     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - The Souris River Joint Board has asked the Federal Emergency Management Agency to review the preliminary flood risk map for Minot. Board members say the failure to consider the operations of Canadian dams in the development of the flood risk map has wrongly placed at least 1,000 structures in the 100-year flood plain.
 
     FEMA administrator Brock Long tells the Minot Daily News the agency is open to reviewing the map but that it will need guarantees on operational policies to be able to consider water held back by the dams as a mitigating factor in flood risk. The operations of the dams follow a plan that's part of an international agreement overseen by a board with both Canadian and U.S. representatives.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota attorney general says Morton County did not violate the state's open records law when it refused to release information related to the Dakota Access pipeline protest.
 
     Benjamin Stoll asked for the opinion after being turned down on his request for video and photographs taken by law enforcement during a protest near a bridge on state Highway 1806 on Nov. 21. The Morton County State's Attorney's Office and Morton County Sheriff's Department cited a state law protecting records that are part of an active investigation.
 
     Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem said in an opinion released Wednesday that the material requested is essential for cases that have yet to be resolved and there are some matters scheduled into November.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Farmers around the country are donating tons of hay ranchers whose livestock are suffering from the drought in the Northern Plains, but getting the feed to the region isn't proving easy. North Dakota's Agriculture Department has issued a plea for truckers to help haul donated hay from other states for a three-state hay lottery program, while an effort in the eastern U.S. started by a tractor pulling team is seeking thousands of dollars to pay for fuel.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's Game and Fish Department is making 3,505 hunting licenses available for the fall turkey season, just five fewer than last year. The deadline to apply is Sept. 6. The fall wild turkey season runs from Oct. 14 through next Jan. 7. Hunting units 21 in Hettinger and Adams counties and 53 in Divide and Williams counties will remain closed this year because of low turkey numbers.
