Both of North Dakota's U.S. senators will make the trip to North Dakota with President Donald Trump on Air Force One....

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Both of North Dakota's U.S. senators will make the trip to North Dakota with President Donald Trump on Air Force One. Democratic Sen. Heidi Heitkamp and Republican Sen. John Hoeven will be traveling with the president this afternoon. Trump is to speak in Mandan about tax reform.
 
     The White House says Republican Rep. Kevin Cramer will also be on the plane. Heitkamp and Cramer could be matched in next year's Senate race. Heitkamp is among 10 Democrats in states Trump carried who are up for re-election in 2018. She's opposed Trump on some issues but sided with him on others. Cramer is a staunch Trump advocate.
 
     Trump will be greeted at the Bismarck Municipal Airport by Gov. Doug Burgum, First Lady Kathryn Helgaas Burgum and Lt. Gov. Brent Sanford.

    BISMARCK, ND - Gov. Doug Burgum issued the following statement Tuesday as he prepared to welcome President Donald Trump to Bismarck-Mandan.

    "We're excited to welcome President Trump to North Dakota and look forward to discussing how tax reform can benefit workers, farmers, ranchers, businesses and families across our state and nation," Burgum said. "The U.S. tax code is bloated, cumbersome and long overdue for reform. Fortunately, President Trump recognizes that he and this Congress have a once-in-a-generation chance to simplify the tax code and cut taxes in a way that allows American workers and families to keep more of their hard-earned income. He understands that lower tax rates will make U.S. businesses more competitive in the global economy, creating new jobs and wealth here at home. His choice of backdrop shows he also understands the importance of a robust energy sector to our national security and economic health, and North Dakota is proud of its leading role in energy production."

    BISMARCK, ND - Morton County officials say Trump's visit will cause traffic delays.  The president is expected to arrive at the Bismarck Airport around 2:40 p.m. and travel to the Andeavor Refinery (formerly Tesoro) around 3:00 p.m.  Officials say travel in and around the Bismarck/Mandan area will be impacted including temporary road closures and traffic delays.

    Mandan Public Schools also notified parents and students of the possibility of traffic congestion and delays around the time of school dismissal.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A Fargo man convicted of murder and arson in the deaths of two people has been sentenced to life in prison without parole. KFGO radio reports that East Central District Judge Norman Anderson on Tuesday handed down the maximum sentence for Ashley Hunter, who was convicted by a jury for the hammer-beating death of 24-year-old Samuel Traut and the stabbing death of 45-year-old Clarence Flowers in 2015.

    Cass County prosecutor Birch Burdick said the killings were shocking and unusual for the community. Hunter's attorney said the murders were the result of a meth-induced rage. Hunter told Anderson that there's nothing he can do to take away the pain from loved ones of the two victims. Anderson said the murders were unprovoked and drugs were no excuse for the crimes.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The University of Mary in Bismarck has received a $1.5 million donation from a North Dakota media mogul and his wife. William Marcil is the chairman of Forum Communications Co. and former publisher and CEO of The Forum, a multimedia news company based in Fargo. Marcil and his wife, Jane, are giving the money as part of the school's Vision 2030 capital campaign.

    Marcil served as publisher of The Forum for 41 years. He is the recipient of the Theodore Roosevelt Roughrider Award, considered the state's highest honor.

    School officials say the fundraising campaign has received commitments of more than $70 million.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota hunters who still need a license for the fall wild turkey season are running out of time. Today is the application deadline set by the state Game and Fish Department.

    The agency made 3,505 hunting licenses available for this year's fall turkey season. Hunters must apply online or over the phone. A service fee is added for phone applications. Only North Dakota residents can apply in the first license lottery. Hunters from out of state can apply for fall turkey licenses that are available after the first lottery.

    The season runs from Oct. 14 through next Jan. 7. Hunting units 21 in Hettinger and Adams counties and 53 in Divide and Williams counties will remain closed this year because of low turkey numbers.
