A North Dakota couple who are displaying a Confederate flag outside their home say they don't intend to take it down...

     HEBRON, N.D. (AP) - A North Dakota couple who are displaying a Confederate flag outside their home say they don't intend to take it down following the deadly white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.
 
     The Bismarck Tribune reports that Bob and Toni Jones have been displaying the flag outside their Hebron home for a few months since finding the flag at a flea market. The couple says to them the flag represents history and part of the American story. Bob Jones says the flag to him symbolizes "freedom, change and love."
 
     Hebron City Councilman Harvey Tibor says that although he has his own opinions about the flag, he doesn't plan to address it. He says no one has complained about the flag to the council.

     FORT YATES, N.D. (AP) - The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe has completed a pipeline connecting the North Dakota and South Dakota portions of a rural water delivery system. The tribe completed the pipeline with help from the Bureau of Reclamation. The pipeline is part of the Standing Rock Rural Water Supply System.

    Standing Rock Chairman Dave Archambault says construction of the water treatment plant, the new water intake and miles of pipe ensures "safe, clean and reliable drinking water" for tribal members.

    Bureau of Reclamation area manager Arden Freitag says the project will stabilize the water supply for communities on the northern part of the reservation. The project replaces an intake that failed in 2003 and an aging water treatment plant.

    A public valve-turning to celebrate the pipeline's completion is scheduled Thursday in Fort Yates.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A program that helps feed the hungry around North Dakota is once again accepting donations of fresh produce from gardeners. Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring says the Hunger Free ND Garden Project hopes to get enough fruits and vegetables this year for 1 million servings to food pantries, shelters and charitable feeding groups. The project has donated 1.8 million pounds of produce since being launched in 2010 by the state Agriculture Department and the Great Plains Food Bank.

    BISMARCK, N.D. - Gov. Doug Burgum and First Lady Kathryn Helgaas Burgum are inviting the general public, Native American communities, business and community leaders, behavioral health providers, university and college representatives, health care providers and administrators, addiction recovery advocates, faith-based communities, first responders, law enforcement, families and more to attend "Recovery Reinvented" on Sept. 26 in Bismarck.

    This daylong event from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Bismarck Event Center will feature facilitated conversations with state and national recovery experts on how to reinvent recovery in North Dakota through innovative implementation.

    Recovery Reinvented is free and open to the public. Tickets are limited and registration is required. Volunteer opportunities are available for the event. For more information, to register or to volunteer, visit recoveryreinvented.com.

    "Addiction is a chronic disease that is treatable, and recovery is possible. The governor and I have pledged to reduce the social stigma and shame surrounding addiction so that more people impacted by addiction will seek help and have access to more resources and services," Helgaas Burgum said.

    Recovery Reinvented sessions will include topics such as recovery community organizations, sober living, criminal justice reform, re-entry, Native American recovery, and more. An interactive question and answer session with the governor and first lady will provide an opportunity for open community discussion.

    "As drug addiction and overdoses continue to take their toll on North Dakota families and stretch community resources, the first lady and I are committed to pursuing a holistic approach to addiction in our communities," Gov. Burgum said.
