      MINOT, N.D. (AP) - A North Dakota landowner is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to take up his challenge of an energy company taking some of his land for a proposed natural gas pipeline near Minot.

    Montana-Dakota Utilities seeks to build a 3,000-foot-long pipeline to service a BNSF Railway facility. MDU needed eminent domain to cross private land, but a North Central district judge ruled in 2018 that harm to private landowner Lavern Behm outweighed any public benefits from the pipeline.

    The North Dakota Supreme Court reversed that this spring, ruling that the lower court misapplied state law when it decided that a taking was not necessary for a public use.

    The U.S. Supreme Court takes up only a tiny fraction of the petitions it receives each term.

     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota State Fair officials have decided against holding a tobacco-free day at next year's event. The state Health Department and Bismarck tobacco prevention coalition had asked the fair board to designate Family-Military Day as smoke free at the 2020 event.
 
     Fair Board President Gary Knell says it would be difficult to make a fairgrounds ban work. The board decided to continue following state guidelines regarding tobacco in public places. State law prohibits smoking in enclosed public spaces, within 20 feet of doors, windows or ventilation systems of public buildings.
 
     The Minot Daily News reports Knell says even though the board denied a tobacco-free day, advocacy groups could set up booths at the fair to encourage people to go tobacco-free on the grounds.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The first medical marijuana dispensary in central North Dakota is open for business.  About 15 people visited the dispensary during the first hour it opened in Bismarck Tuesday. Ben Hecht is general manager of Harvest of Bismarck. Hecht tells the Bismarck Tribune the dispensary sells everything that's available under state law, including oil, flowers and topical lotion. He says the medical marijuana manufacturing facility in Bismarck is researching a transdermal patch.
 
     The Bismarck shop is one of four operating in North Dakota since voters approved medical marijuana in November 2016. Dispensaries have opened in Fargo, Grand Forks and Williston. The state expects as many as 4,000 residents will legally be using medical marijuana by next summer.

    MINOT, ND - An estimated 2,000 recreational vehicles have brought about 3,500 travelers to the North Dakota State Fairgrounds for the Family Motor Coach Association Convention that runs today through Saturday. The event is expected to draw about 6,000 people over four days.

    This is the FMCA's third convention in Minot but it will be a special one as the association marks its 100th anniversary. "Minot Magic - 100 Times the Fun" is the theme of the event.

    A highlight will be the appearance of Chesley Sullenberger, the retired airline captain who in 2009 landed US Airways Flight 1549 in the Hudson River off Manhattan after both engines were disabled by a bird strike. All 155 people aboard survived.
