MINOT, N.D. (AP) - Minot officials say they're cracking down on campers that are being used as temporary housing in city limits.
 
     Officials say they've received numerous complaints about the number of people living in recreational vehicles, tents and unauthorized FEMA trailers, which are not allowed within the city or a 2-mile jurisdiction around the city unless approved by city council.
 
     The city currently has apartment vacancies, camper spots available and homes for sale within and around Minot.

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A woman on the Standing Rock Indian Reservation accused of taking advantage of a man with a brain injury has pleaded not guilty to a felony exploitation charge.
 
     The Bismarck Tribune reports that 53-year-old Jeanette Blackcloud, of Cannon Ball, is accused of taking advantage of the man after he won money at Prairie Knights Casino in January.
 
     Authorities say the man knew Blackcloud and contacted her because he wanted to buy clothes for her grandchildren. She allegedly took him to a bank to cash a $4,000 check, then took him to stores in Bismarck-Mandan and got him to buy things that were not for his intended purpose - including a $2,500 vehicle for her.
 
     Blackcloud could face up to five years in prison if convicted.

WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - Police say a man beaten in front of a strip club in the North Dakota oil boomtown of Williston has died of his injuries.
 
     Detective David Peterson says 25-year-old Dean Niederklopfer (NEE'-dur-klawp-fur) was taken off life support at a Minot hospital late Monday, after being beaten early Friday. Peterson says Niederklopfer is an "innocent victim."
 
     Police in an affidavit say witnesses observed 29-year-old Kyle Siler hitting Niederklopfer with a closed fist. The affidavit says a video seen by police shows Siler's girlfriend, Jessica Gibson, filming the incident. The pair was apprehended in South Dakota late Friday.
 
     Siler was arrested on an aggravated assault warrant and Gibson on a warrant for hindering law enforcement.
 
     Peterson says Siler is a former employee at the strip club Whispers.

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The chancellor of the tribal college in Bismarck has been named as a representative of a scholarship program that is part of a $3.4 billion government settlement with Native American landowners.
 
     United Tribes Technical College Chancellor David Gipp, who is Sioux, was appointed by the Denver-based American Indian College Fund to serve as its representative on the Cobell Board of Trustees.
 
     The settlement is named for Blackfeet Tribal citizen Elouise Cobell of Browning, Montana. She filed the lawsuit in 1996
 
     The settlement was finalized in 2012 and resolved historic claims of government mismanagement of royalties on Indian lands.
 
     Besides paying hundreds of thousands of landowners, the settlement sets aside up to $60 million for scholarships for Native American students.

 BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Information Technology Department has moved into a $17 million building in north Bismarck, putting its staff in the capital city under one roof.
 
     Employees had been spread among five Bismarck locations, including the state Capitol. The move to the new 85,000-square-foot facility frees up about 10,000 square feet of space inside the Capitol that will be used by other agencies.
 
     Department Chief Information Officer Mike Ressler says it took about three weeks to move the 300 staff from the five locations. The effort wrapped up late last week. The department also has about 40 staff members in Fargo.
 
     Ressler says having all of the Bismarck workers in one facility should make operations more efficient.
