     LIDGERWOOD, N.D. (AP) - A Lidgerwood man is facing a felony reckless endangerment charge after a six-hour standoff with authorities at his home. The Wahpeton Daily News reports that the Monday incident began when officers responded to a report of 39-year-old Michael Skroch allegedly terrorizing someone with a sword.
 
     Richland County Sheriff Larry Leshovsky says attempts to negotiate with Skroch were unsuccessful. Officers twice fired tear gas into the home and successfully removed him the second time.

    BISMARCK, N.D. - Sanford AirMed has purchased a new EC-145 helicopter, which will provide life-saving air ambulance services to critically ill or injured patients in central and western North Dakota, eastern Montana and northern South Dakota. This new helicopter replaces the existing helicopter which was in need of repairs and upgrades.

    "North Dakota is definitely a rural part of the country," said Adam Parker, AirMed base manager in Bismarck. "Being able to fly right to the scene of an accident or fly a critically ill patient from their local hospital to a tertiary medical center is crucial in making sure the patient gets the adequate care they need."

    The EC-145 helicopter can travel up to 167 mph and is equipped with onboard weather radar and traffic collision avoidance, night vision goggles and can hold two patients on board in addition to emergency medical staff.

    Sanford AirMed's Bismarck base consists of a helicopter and a highly trained team of flight paramedics, flight nurses, pilots and mechanics chosen for their expertise in their fields. A flight paramedic, flight nurse and pilot are on duty 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. Sanford AirMed operates a fleet of four helicopters and four airplanes from bases in Bismarck, Fargo, Sioux Falls, Bemidji and Dickinson.
