A Bismarck man is dead after rear-ending a payloader on U.S. Highway 83.....

     MAX, N.D. (AP) - A Bismarck man is dead after rear-ending a payloader on U.S. Highway 83.  The Highway Patrol did not immediately identify the 55-year-old victim of the Wednesday afternoon crash near Max.  Authorities say the man was driving a van that rear-ended the payloader, which was traveling about 20 mph. He was pronounced dead at the scene.  The driver of the payloader was taken to a Minot hospital with unspecified injuries.

     MANDAN, N.D. (AP) - A Mandan man accused of shaking and injuring his toddler son has pleaded guilty to a felony child abuse charge.  Jeremy Young was to go on trial this week. He instead changed the not guilty plea he had entered earlier.
 
     Court documents indicate that doctors believe Young's 16-month-old son will have permanent problems with his eyes and brain functions because of Young's actions.  KXMB-TV reports that Young faces up to 10 years in prison. A sentencing date was not immediately scheduled.

     HILLSBORO, N.D. (AP) - Authorities have issued an arrest warrant for a Hatton woman who was involved in a fatal crash on Interstate 29 near Hillsboro in May.  Twenty-year-old Abby Sletten is charged with negligent homicide, a felony that carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison. Court documents do not list an attorney for her, and a telephone listing for her could not immediately be found.
 
     KFGO radio reports that Sletten is accused of being on Facebook on her cellphone when she rear-ended a vehicle, killing 89-year-old Phyllis Gordon, of Ada. Three others were hurt in the crash.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A man accused of running an illegal gambling operation in North Dakota says the case should be dismissed because the charges conflict with a plea agreement in a separate money laundering case.
 
     Gerald Greenfield, of Bloomington, Minnesota, is charged in federal court with three counts, including conducting sports betting business and conspiracy to commit money laundering. Greenfield allegedly ran the gambling operation for four years and made an annual profit of between $500,000 and $600,000.
 
     Greenfield pleaded guilty to money laundering in 2010 and was sentenced in Minnesota state court to more than four years in prison. His attorney says the plea agreement in that case can be interpreted to show that separate gambling charges would not be brought against Greenfield.  Federal prosecutors were not available for comment.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The expansion of North Dakota's state museum is resulting in a boost in visitors.  Two of three new galleries have opened at the Heritage Center on the Capitol grounds in Bismarck. The third gallery is to open on Nov. 2, the 125th anniversary of North Dakota statehood.
 
     The museum was closed in the fall of 2012 for the $52 million, 97,000-square-foot expansion. The first two new galleries opened in late May.  State Historical Society Director Merle Paaverud tells The Bismarck Tribune that visitation in the past four months has surpassed 85,000 people. Before the expansion, the museum drew between 100,000 and 125,000 annually. Paaverud says officials hope to double that this year.
