The governors of Minnesota and North Dakota are forming a 16-member task force to try to revive a stalled flood control project in the Fargo-Moorhead area....

     MOORHEAD, Minn. (AP) - The governors of Minnesota and North Dakota are forming a 16-member task force to try to revive a stalled flood control project in the Fargo-Moorhead area.
 
     Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton and North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum said today after meeting behind closed doors in Moorhead that they will each appoint eight members to help resolve differences over construction of the Red River diversion project. No other details were released.
 
     A group of upstream residents in the two states has filed a lawsuit opposing the diversion, saying there is a cheaper option that doesn't flood farmland. A federal judge last month stopped construction of the channel over complaints that project managers did not obtain the necessary permits from Minnesota.  Construction of the first phase of the project began earlier this year.

     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - The Minot City Council has taken its first step in banning bow hunting within city limits. The Minot Daily News reports that the city approved an ordinance on first reading Monday after hearing from residents opposed to bow hunting. The ordinance would make hunting with an archery or crossbow in city limits punishable by fine. A second reading will be required to put the ordinance into effect.
 
     Safety concerns about bow hunting came after an animal nuisance committee considered ways to reduce the population of some animals, including deer. Council member Josh Wolsky chairs the nuisance animal committee. He says the committee may bring back alternatives for dealing with deer.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Two more suspects have pleaded guilty in a Jamaican lottery scam that authorities say cost dozens of mostly elderly Americans millions of dollars. The pleas by Jason Jahalal and Xanu Morgan in late September came as federal prosecutors in North Dakota continue efforts to reach deals with the 13 suspects who've been arrested. Two more suspects remain fugitives.
 
     Six of the case's 15 defendants have reached agreements calling for them to plead guilty to conspiracy, with the government dropping fraud and money laundering counts and recommending restitution.
 
     Three of the six have pleaded guilty and two more are scheduled to do so later this month. A sixth was to plead Tuesday but the hearing was canceled so attorneys can fine-tune his agreement.
 
     Seven suspects remain scheduled for trial in January.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Thousands of landowners on the Spirit Lake Indian Reservation have been sent purchase offers through a federal program to return land on reservations to tribal control. The buyback program was initiated by the Obama administration and has spent more than $1.2 billion to purchase parcels of land with multiple owners and transfer them to tribal governments. The Interior Department says 5,041 Spirit Lake landowners have been sent offers. They have about two months to consider them.
 
     The buyback program resulted from a lawsuit that alleged U.S. officials for decades mismanaged trust money held on behalf of hundreds of thousands of Indians. To date, more than 2.1 million acres of land have been transferred through the program.
