Three nurses who worked for a Minot hospice program are accused of stealing drugs prescribed for patients....

     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - Three nurses who worked for a Minot hospice program are accused of stealing drugs prescribed for patients. The Minot Daily News reports that 39-year-old April Beckler, 45-year-old Kim Kochel and 39-year-old Jennifer Napora are all charged with felony theft of property.
 
     Court documents show that the incidents took place between December 2012 and October 2014 while the nurses worked for Trinity Hospital's Home Health and Hospice program. Beckler and Kochel face two other charges, including endangering a venerable adult. They are accused of diluting medication or giving morphine instead of a more potent version of the drug that was prescribed to manage pain. The three women have yet to appear in court. It's not clear if they have hired lawyers.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A parcel bordering Theodore Roosevelt National Park in North Dakota may be included in a federal oil and gas lease sale. The Bismarck Tribune reports that conservationists are urging the Bureau of Land Management not to include the 120-acre parcel in the lease sale, raising concerns about oil development on the park's boundary.
 
     Park Superintendent Wendy Ross said that the National Park Service is concerned about oil activity diminishing visitor experience and affecting wildlife habitat.
 
     A bureau spokesman says the agency received an "expression of interest" to lease the federal minerals. Agency officials are taking public input on whether to include it in a March sale. An environmental assessment would be available for public review beginning Sept. 30.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The federal government has approved North Dakota's newly crafted state education standards. U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos says the plan that North Dakota officials have been working on for more than a year meets the requirements under the federal Every Student Succeeds Act. The law superseded the No Child Left Behind law and gives states more flexibility on student testing and academic standards.
 
     North Dakota's plan is the product of work by a group of more than 50 education stakeholders, including teachers, parents, school administrators, legislators and representatives of education groups. State Superintendent Kirsten Baesler says the plan "reflects what's best for the students in North Dakota."

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Funeral services have been scheduled for a Fargo woman whose body was found in the Red River three days after police recovered a baby believed to be hers. Boulger Funeral Home says services for 22-year-old Savanna Greywind are set for 10:30 a.m. Thursday at First Assembly Church.
 
     Greywind was eight months pregnant when she disappeared last month. Authorities say she was killed by homicidal violence. Prosecutors have charged the man and woman who lived in an apartment where the baby was found with conspiracy to commit murder in what they say was a scheme to take Greywind's baby. The two suspects were Greywind's neighbors.
