     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota officials are trying to raise awareness of the emerald ash borer and prevent its spread into the state, which has about 78 million ash trees.
 
     The beetles have killed millions of ash trees in several states including Minnesota. North Dakota Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring says the pest is now widespread in Minneapolis-St. Paul, and given the traffic on Interstate 94 between North Dakota and the Twin Cities it will be difficult to keep the bug out of North Dakota.
 
     Gov. Jack Dalrymple has proclaimed next week as Emerald Ash Borer Awareness Week. Foresters in 30 cities and state parks will be tying ribbons along with informational fliers to publicly owned ash trees.  Local, state and federal officials also will be placing about 350 insect traps around the state.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The mother of a baby born in a Wal-Mart parking lot in Bismarck says her son is doing well.  The Bismarck Tribune reports that mother Alesia Medeiros was waiting in a vehicle while her mother-in-law shopped last Thursday night. Medeiros started going into labor and asked a woman nearby to call 911.
 
     Store co-manager Derrick Orr helped deliver the baby, with the help of others who came to the aid of Medeiros and the woman on the phone with 911 dispatchers, who passed along instructions. Orr used his shoelace to tie off the umbilical cord as the ambulance arrived.
 
     Baby Diesel was born six weeks early and weighed fewer than 5 pounds, but Medeiros says he is doing fine, though he remains in the hospital.
