Ward County is giving the city of Minot about $5 million to help with property buyouts for a long-term flood protection project....

     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - Ward County is giving the city of Minot about $5 million to help with property buyouts for a long-term flood protection project. The city is running short on funds to continue its own acquisitions and appealed to the county for excess money the county received from the state for property buyouts. The commission approved the transfer on Tuesday.
     Minot Finance Director David Lakefield says the city already has purchased or is in the process of acquiring $23 million in properties.
     The 2011 Souris River flood damaged or destroyed more than 4,000 buildings in Minot, displacing more than 11,000 people and causing about $700 million in damage.


     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Federal prosecutors are accusing a man of cashing thousands of dollars in counterfeit checks at several North Dakota banks. KFGO radio reports that Mikey Ramone George is charged with nine counts of bank fraud and one count of conspiracy to commit bank fraud. He has yet to appear in federal court.
     Authorities say fake checks were cashed at Gate City, First International, Western State and Bell Bank, among others. The value of the checks is estimated at about $24,000. George was arrested last week in Georgia. Prosecutors did not return phone calls seeking comment. Court documents do not list an attorney for George.


     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota regulators have approved an agreement settling allegations that the Texas-based builder of the Dakota Access pipeline violated state rules during construction.

    North Dakota's Public Service Commission last year accused Energy Transfer Partners of improperly reporting the discovery of American Indian artifacts. Regulators also were looking into whether crews removed too many trees.

    The deal the commission approved Wednesday calls for ETP to help develop and promote an industry manual for handling artifacts discoveries, and to plant more trees along the pipeline route than it had proposed. The state isn't
requiring a $15,000 fine or payment, as it had proposed earlier.

    The agreement was worked out by attorneys for the company and the commission.

    The $3.8 billion pipeline began moving North Dakota oil to Illinois on June 1.


     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's taxable sales and purchases have increased for the first time in two years. State tax data shows that from April to June nearly $4.7 billion in taxable sales and purchases were made. That's a nearly 7 percent increase from the same period last year. Tax Commissioner Ryan Rauschenberger tells The Bismarck Tribune that a "new normal" is emerging that's comparable to pre-oil boom levels.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota Sen. John Hoeven says he is "supportive" of new legislation that would undo the Obama health law. President Donald Trump and Republican Senate leaders are trying to rally 50 Republican votes to pass the bill that would replace much of former President Barack Obama's law with block grants to states so they can devise their own health care coverage rules.

     BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Taiwan has once again agreed to purchase a large share of U.S. wheat over the next two years, with most of it coming from Idaho, North Dakota and Montana. Idaho Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter and Taiwanese milling industry officials signed the $576 million agreement Wednesday at the Idaho Capitol in Boise.
