The federal government wants some land bordering Theodore Roosevelt National Park in western North Dakota in an oil and gas lease sale.....

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The federal government wants some land bordering Theodore Roosevelt National Park in western North Dakota in an oil and gas lease sale. The Bismarck Tribune reports that the Bureau of Land Management recommends including the 120-acre parcel in McKenzie County in the lease sale scheduled for March 2018.
 
     BLM says its recommendation is consistent with the "administration's goals of promoting America's energy independence" and also follows approved resources management plans.
 
     Park Superintendent Wendy Ross says in a letter to BLM that she's worried that the nearby oil development will affect the park's scenic beauty, natural sound, wildlife habitat and dark night skies.
 
     The agency is accepting public comments through Oct. 30.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A Minot man is recovering from surgery after getting shot in the abdomen during the attack in Las Vegas that left 59 others dead and hundreds of others wounded. Co-workers say Andrew Gudmunson is in stable condition at a hospital near the Las Vegas strip. The attack by sniper at a high-rise hotel has become the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.

     SHOREWOOD, Minn. (AP) - The parents of a Minnesota man who had been missing after the mass shooting in Las Vegas say they have been notified he was killed in the attack. Steven Berger, a financial adviser who lived in Shorewood, Minnesota, and was a native of Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, had been attending Sunday night's concert with his roommate and other friends. His mother Mary says Steven's roommate saw him get shot and fall, but was prevented from getting to him as people were herded out of the venue. Steven's father, Richard Berger, said the family was notified by the coroner's office in Las Vegas this afternoon that he had died.
 
     Richard Berger calls the loss of the couple's only son "terrible." Mary Berger described her son as fun-loving with a serious side and a hard worker. He played basketball in high school and college, graduating from St. Olaf College. He was the father of three children.

Skunes is the third North Dakota farmer to lead the national corn group. Bart Schott of Kulm and Wallie Hardie of Fairmount previously served in the role.
