BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) – A judge has banned a man from working as a contractor in North Dakota for at least five years after his business failed to complete a number of home improvement projects. Attorney General Drew Wrigley announced Friday that Burleigh Couty Judge David Reich on Tuesday ordered Matthew Holden’s flooring business dissolved, barred him from doing business as a contractor in the state and ordered him to pay $36,420 in restitution to 10 consumers. According to Wrigley, Holden took advance payments from homeowners in Burleigh and Morton counties last year for home improvement projects, including flooring materials and installation, and then didn’t deliver the materials or finish the work.

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) – Getting a fishing boat or a pontoon on the Missouri River System in North Dakota this summer could be tricky due to low water levels amid prolonged drought. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers predicts spring runoff to be well below normal for the upper Missouri River Basin. Runoff in February was less than expected, and the agency expects the trend to continue in coming months. Work during previous droughts dating to the 1980s has resulted in a system of low-water ramps. But officials need to find the money to get them operational.
