GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) — Police are searching for a suspect in a stabbing at a Grand Forks apartment.

Authorities say a man and woman were stabbed at the apartment on Monday. The two were taken to the hospital where at least one victim is in stable condition.

Officials say they are searching for a man, but haven’t said if he knew the two victims.

Police, the Highway Patrol and Border Patrol agents stationed in Grand Forks are searching for the suspect.


COLUMBUS, N.D. (AP) — Authorities have released the name of an 11-year-old Crosby boy who died in an all-terrain vehicle accident in Burke County in northwestern North Dakota.

The North Dakota Highway Patrol says Gavyn Dimmick died Friday night after the ATV he was riding rolled over on him. It happened about 7 miles north of Columbus at the Short Creek Recreation Area.

Troopers say Dimmick was on a grassy slope when the ATV rolled.

He was found by his father, who called 911. A firefighter who was at a nearby campground attempted CPR but could not resuscitate the boy.



FARGO, N.D. (AP) — West Fargo police say officers seized more than $700,000 worth of marijuana from a vehicle during a traffic stop.

Police say officers found the marijuana Sunday after a drug-sniffing dog looked around the vehicle during the stop on Interstate 94. The drug bust is the largest in the police department’s history.

Officers say that inside the car they found 125 pounds of raw marijuana, more than 168 grams of hashish, two vials of marijuana oil, and more than 2,800 grams of marijuana wax.

Police identified the driver they arrested as Hans Wagner and say he had a California driver’s license. Police say he faces a felony charge of delivery of marijuana.



BUFFALO, N.D. (AP) — The North Dakota Supreme Court has upheld the state Health Department’s decision to issue a permit for a 9,000-hog farm in Buffalo.

Many of the town’s 200 residents had worried about potential pollution from the $15 million facility at Rolling Green Family Farms.

But the Health Department granted a permit, saying the farm would meet state standards. The state also added conditions to the permit to address concerns about odor, surface water and groundwater.

Opponents went to court last year and asked a judge to block the project and rescind the permit. But the judge refused and the state Supreme Court upheld that decision in an opinion filed earlier this week.

Minnesota-based Pipestone Holdings will operate the facility.


FARGO, N.D. (AP) – Funeral services have been scheduled for a Fargo woman whose body was found in the Red River three days after police recovered a baby believed to be hers.

Boulger Funeral Home says services for 22-year-old Savanna Greywind are set for 10:30 a.m. Thursday at First Assembly Church.

Greywind was eight months pregnant when she disappeared last month. Authorities say she was killed by homicidal violence.

Prosecutors have charged the man and woman who lived in an apartment where the baby was found with conspiracy to commit murder in what they say was a scheme to take Greywind’s baby. The two suspects were Greywind’s neighbors.


BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — State agriculture officials in the Northern Plains are starting the process of divvying up tons of hay donated from around the country to help drought-plagued ranchers in the region.

North Dakota’s Agriculture Department, North Dakota State University and the Michigan-based nonprofit Ag Community Relief this month launched a program to accept hay donations for ranchers in the Dakotas and Montana.

Midnight Thursday was the deadline for applications. Nearly 1,400 ranchers from the three states applied for dozens of semi-loads of hay donated from around the U.S. It’s being distributed through a lottery drawing.

North Dakota Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring says the response has been uplifting.

Goehring also says getting more hay donations to North Dakota might be difficult, with the nation’s focus turning to helping hurricane-ravaged ranchers in Texas.
BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Donald Trump will be on friendly turf when he brings his tax reform tour to North Dakota this week. It’s a deep-red state he carried by 36 points last year.

But even Trump backers in North Dakota say they want to see more detail about what he’s got planned when it comes to taxes.

Trump cemented his winning coalition with populist promises to help people left behind by the slow recovery of the Obama years. But he’s also promised lower tax rates to corporate America and top earners.

Reconciling those two elements, while holding to the party’s stated opposition to increasing the deficit, will be a challenge.

After months of trying to write a plan, Trump’s economic advisers say they will leave the details to Congress.
BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — One hundred years after World War I, a powwow in North Dakota will honor Native Americans who served in the conflict before they were considered U.S. citizens.

They’re being remembered at the 48th annual International Powwow next weekend at United Tribes Technical College in Bismarck. The Bismarck Tribune reports that several hundred family members and descendants of World War I Native servicemen are expected to participate on Sunday, Sept. 10.

The grand entry will feature honor guards and drum groups from the five governing tribes of the college: the Mandan, Hidatsa and Arikara Nation; Sisseton-Wahpeton Oyate; the Spirit Lake and Standing Rock Sioux tribes, and the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa.

Names will be read of more than 355 veterans from the five tribes who served in World War I.

MINOT, N.D. (AP) — A popular Minot golf course is being rebuilt six years after the Souris River flood.

The Minot Daily News reports that the new and improved Apple Grove Golf Course will include contours to the fairways where they once were flat, tee boxes and greens have also been moved. Other changes include reconfigured golf holes to add distance from tee to green.

Hundreds of golfers felt the loss of the Apple Grove Golf Course when it was covered by the 2011 flood.

The course was left with silt, uprooted trees and more damage that would take a lot of time and work to make the facility playable again.

The course quickly became popular with Minot’s golfing community after opening in 1979.

The course’s owners to open the improved facility in 2018.

NEW YORK (AP) — David Wright’s bid to play this season is over.

The Mets third baseman will have surgery on his right rotator cuff Tuesday. Wright last played in the majors in May 2016 before undergoing surgery the following month for a herniated disk in his neck.

The seven-time All-Star and team captain cut short his comeback try in the minors last week after experiencing pain in his throwing shoulder.



UNDATED (AP) — Hurricane Irma could alter the NFL’s opening-week schedule.

A person familiar with the discussions tells The Associated Press the league is considering moving Sunday’s Dolphins-Buccaneers game in Miami to another site or playing it earlier this week because of the hurricane. The person says the game could be held Thursday or Friday with Irma expected to threaten South Florida over the weekend. Kickoff is scheduled for 1 p.m. EDT Sunday.



NORTON, Mass. (AP) — Justin Thomas has added another big title to a season filled with big moments by outlasting Jordan Spieth and Marc Leishman on the back nine of the TPC Boston to win the Dell Technologies Championship.

Two shots behind at the turn, Thomas surged ahead with a short birdie and a 6-foot par save and closed with a 5-under 66 for a three-shot victory that was much tighter than the final margin. It was the fifth title of the season for Thomas, including his first major at the PGA Championship.

Spieth wasted a birdie-eagle-birdie-birdie start to his round with too many mistakes on the back nine. He closed with a 67 and was runner-up for the second straight week in the FedEx Cup playoffs. Spieth still went to No. 1 in the FedEx Cup.

Leishman shot 40 on the back nine.


In world and national news…

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — German Chancellor Angela Merkel has condemned North Korea’s latest nuclear test as a “flagrant violation” of international conventions, but also said there can only be a “diplomatic and peaceful solution” of the crisis. Merkel, speaking to the German parliament, said North Korea’s distance from Germany should not keep the country from helping to end the crisis. Merkel also talked to President Donald Trump to discuss the nuclear test.

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump’s plan to take a hard line on young immigrants unless Congress intervenes is threatening to expose deep divides among Republicans. Trump’s attorney general, Jeff Sessions, is expected to announce Tuesday that the administration will end in six months a program that shields from deportation young immigrants brought to the country illegally as children. That gives Congress time to act. But Republican Rep. Steve King of Iowa is predicting “a great big civil war” in the party.

BEIRUT (AP) — Syrian state TV and an opposition activist group say government forces and their allies have reached the eastern city of Deir el-Zour breaching nearly 3-year Islamic State group siege on government-held areas. The TV said troops advancing from the west reached Tuesday the western outskirts of the city that has been contested since January 2015. Rami Abdurrahman who heads the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said advancing troops and those defending the city have met.

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — Officials across the northeastern Caribbean have canceled flights, shuttered schools and are urging people to hunker down as Hurricane Irma barrels toward the region as a powerful Category 4 storm. States of emergency were declared in Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and all of Florida while people on various Caribbean islands boarded up homes and rushed to find last-minute supplies.

UNDATED (AP) — It’s too soon to know how many of more than 37,000 heavily damaged homes in Texas are salvageable, but Houston officials say some will be submerged in water for up to a month. Thousands have already been destroyed in the state, thanks to staggering amounts of rainfall spawned by Hurricane Harvey. Evacuees have begun returning to their inundated homes, and others moved to government-paid hotels.
