     WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - Half of the candidates in the race to become the next chairman of the Three Affiliated Tribes have been deemed ineligible to run according to the tribes' election board.
 
     Incumbent chairman Tex Hall, tribe attorney Damon Williams, tribal tax director Mark Fox, New Town councilman Ken Hall and Mandaree councilman Randy Phelan all made the cut.  The top two vote getters in the Sept. 16 primary election will face off in a general election on Nov. 4.
 
     Those deemed ineligible include former tribal chairman Marcus Levings and the tribes' environmental director, Edmund Baker.  Candidates can be deemed ineligible if they owe the tribes money, do not meet residence requirements, have a felony conviction, were dishonorably discharged from the military or do not meet a blood quantum requirement.

     BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - A 37-year-old Big Timber, Montana man has been sentenced to nearly six years in federal prison for his role in a drug trafficking case that brought potent methamphetamine from Washington state to the Bakken oil fields.
 
     The Billings Gazette reports Lloyd Leon Westervelt was sentenced Thursday by U.S. District Judge Susan Watters. He was arrested with almost a half-pound of nearly pure meth in his car along with several loaded guns.
 
     Meanwhile, 25-year-old Dennis James Latka of Sidney, Montana pleaded guilty Thursday to possession with intent to distribute. He faces sentencing on Dec. 3.  Court records say Latka confessed to getting about two ounces of meth each week from ringleader Robert "Dr. Bob" Armstrong during a four-month period beginning in October 2012.
 
     About a dozen people were arrested in the case. Armstrong is scheduled to be sentenced on Friday.

     WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - A state spill report says a pipeline on North Dakota's Fort Berthold Indian Reservation has leaked 3,000 barrels of brine.  The report says the pipeline is operated by Arrow Water LLC, a subsidiary of Crestwood Midstream Partners LP. The report notes the spill has been isolated and cleanup crews have been mobilized. The spill was discovered late Friday.
 
     In early July, a pipeline operated by another Crestwood subsidiary leaked 1 million gallons of brine into the badlands near the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation town of Mandaree. That incident was one of the largest oil field spills in state history.  Houston-based Crestwood didn't immediately respond to requests for comment.

     VALLEY CITY, N.D. (AP) - Two people accused of torching a Valley City church to cover up a break-in have pleaded guilty.  KOVC-AM reports Andrew Miklas, of Fargo, and Nicole Lindermann, of Kathryn, entered their pleas Monday. They were charged with burglarizing Faith Lutheran Church on Oct. 6.
 
     Barnes County State's Attorney Carl Martineck says Lindermann told authorities that Miklas broke into the church and stole cash and three bottles of wine. He later returned to the church with a can filled with paint thinner and started three separate fires.  The station reports that Miklas is in custody at the Barnes County jail. Lindermann is out on bond.
 
     The fire caused an estimated $2.5 million in damage to Faith Lutheran Church. The 800-member congregation has decided to build a new church at the same spot.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton has requested that crews temporarily stop working on the Red River flood control project.  KFGO-AM reports Dayton sent a letter to Jo-Ellen Darcy of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers asking the federal agency to hold off on supporting the project until Minnesota conducts an environmental review.  Dayton requested the Corps stop endorsing funding, issuing permits and providing construction assistance on the effort to reduce flooding.
 
     Darrell Vanyo is the chairman of the Fargo-Moorhead Diversion Authority. Vanyo says he was surprised by Dayton's request because the issue was never raised last week at a meeting in St. Paul, Minnesota, with the Department of Natural Resources.  Vanyo says work will continue as scheduled.
