     MINTO, N.D. (AP) - Authorities have identified a 30-year-old Forest River woman who died in a single-vehicle crash in Walsh County. The Highway Patrol says Elizabeth Knecht was driving a sport utility vehicle that went off a rural road about 7:40 a.m. Monday. The SUV went through a ditch and over a riverbank, overturned, broke through the ice and came to rest upside down partially submerged in the water. Knecht was alone in the vehicle. She died at the scene, about a mile south of Minto.


     EDGELEY, N.D. (AP) - The Highway Patrol has identified a Monango man who died in a LaMoure County crash involving a semitrailer hauling corn and a sport utility vehicle. Seventy-nine-year-old Coral Bardell was driving an SUV that collided with the semi Thursday afternoon at a rural intersection northeast of Edgeley. Both vehicles rolled in the ditch, and Bardell died from his injuries. The 41-year-old Stirum man driving the semi suffered undisclosed injuries and was taken to a Jamestown hospital.


     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - State regulators say human error caused a pipeline spill that leaked more than 260 barrels of oilfield wastewater in western North Dakota. The Bismarck Tribune reports that the spill in Dunn County on Sunday was reported by Crestwood Midstream.
     Department of Mineral Resources spokeswoman Alison Ritter says crews forgot to close a valve on the pipeline, which caused the produced water spill. Produced water is a mixture of saltwater and oil that can contain drilling chemicals. Regulators say the spill was contained within a pipeline trench and most of it had been recovered by Monday.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota National Guard soldiers who served 10 months in Afghanistan are returning to the state. About 60 members of the Bismarck-based 136th Combat Sustainment Support Battalion flew into Fort Hood in Texas last Friday to go through the demobilization process. The soldiers are returning home to North Dakota on several flights today and Thursday. They're flying into Bismarck, Fargo, Grand Forks and Devils Lake.


     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Department of Transportation is adding 32 new snow plows meant to make clearing the roads more efficient. KFGO radio reports that the new equipment combines the traditional front plow with a tow plow, which is pulled behind the truck. The new plows can clear a much wider path through snow and also apply brine solution to the roadway. The new plows will be deployed at all eight of the state's DOT offices.


     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The United Way is helping close an emergency housing gap in Bismarck since the city's lone men's emergency shelter closed late last month. Missouri Slope Areawide United Way Executive Director Jena Gullo tells The Bismarck Tribune that the organization has provided 150 nights of shelter for 46 people deemed to be in crisis. Shelters in Minot and Grand Forks also have offered to help.

    The Ruth Meiers Hospitality House closed its men's emergency shelter Oct. 27, following financial management problems. The closure forced many homeless men back onto the street.

    Efforts are still underway to open a temporary shelter for winter in Bismarck-Mandan, but community leaders have struggled to identify a location and an agency to operate it. Gullo estimates it would cost $90,000 to run a shelter through April.
