BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Hate crimes in North Dakota appeared to drop for the second straight year in 2016, but authorities warn against making year-by-year comparisons because the number of participating agencies changes each year.

The FBI released its 2016 hate crime statistics report Monday.

North Dakota reported eight hate crimes last year. The figures come from just six — roughly 3 percent — of the 180 agencies that participated in the hate crime statistics program.

The figures are a big drop from 2015, when the state reported 36 hate crimes. That year, nearly 17 percent of participating police agencies reported incidents.

The yearly report is the most comprehensive accounting of hate crimes in the U.S. But authorities warn it’s incomplete, partly because it’s based on voluntary reporting by police agencies.



BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — The state-owned Bank of North Dakota is getting out of the federal student loan business.

Bank President Eric Hardmeyer says the move will enable the bank to focus on its own student loan program, and possibly update software to improve customer service.

The bank had been making federally guaranteed student loans for nearly half a century when the U.S. Department of Education took over the program in 2010. After that, the bank continued to service the federal loans it already had made.

The bank’s federal portfolio has since shrunk to less than a third of its former size. The bank is selling it to the nonprofit North Texas Higher Education Authority.

The sale will be complete early next year. It won’t affect borrowers’ interest rates, payment amounts or due dates.



BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota’s Agriculture Department is extending for a second time the application deadline for a hay transportation aid program.

Monday was the deadline for the program approved by the state Emergency Commission in late August in response to summer-long drought. The group made $1.5 million available to reimburse eligible ranchers for personal and commercial hay-hauling expenses.

Initially, the program was for expenses incurred between June 1 and Oct. 20, and the application deadline was Nov. 3. Late last month the Agriculture Department extended the hauling cutoff date to Nov. 6 and the application deadline to Nov. 13.

Both the application deadline and the hauling cutoff date have now been extended to Friday. State Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring says many ranchers are still transporting hay from long distances.




MINOT, N.D. (AP) — Voters in the Des Lacs-Burlington school district on Tuesday will decide whether to approve an $11.9 million bond issue for school construction and renovation.

Voters narrowly defeated a $15.4 million bond referendum in April. Superintendent Christopher Bachmeier tells the Minot Daily News that officials listened to taxpayers and scaled back the plans.

The bond issue would pay for a junior high school wing for the high school in Des Lacs. Seventh- and eighth-graders who currently attend school in Burlington would be moved to Des Las in the fall of 2019. That would enable the district to offer them more classes, such as art and vocational agriculture.

The district also would renovate classrooms at the elementary in Burlington and build a kindergarten wing.

The district has 675 students in grades K-12.

UNDATED (AP) — Major League Baseball has announced its American and National League rookies of the year, and both were unanimous decisions.

Aaron Judge is the first New York Yankee since Derek Jeter in 1996 to win the AL Rookie of the Year Award in voting by the Baseball Writers’ Association of America. Judge led the AL with a rookie-record 52 home runs last season while batting .284 with 114 RBIs and league highs of 128 runs scored, 127 walks and 208 strikeouts.

Red Sox outfielder Andrew Benintendi finished second in the balloting, followed by Orioles slugger Trey Mancini.

Los Angeles Dodgers first baseman Cody Bellinger came away with the NL Rookie of the Year Award after batting .267 with 39 home runs and 97 RBIs last season. Bellinger is the second consecutive Dodger to receive the honor and the 18th since Jackie Robinson won the first award in 1947.

Cardinals middle infielder Paul DeJong (deh-YUHNG’) finished second and Pirates first baseman Josh Bell was third in the voting.

Meanwhile, a former Rookie of the Year has called it quits.

Houston Astros outfielder and designated hitter Carlos Beltran has announced his retirement just 12 days after winning his first World Series. The nine-time All-Star revealed his decision in an essay written for The Players’ Tribune website, ending a 20-year career in which he batted .279 with 435 home runs, 1,587 RBIs and 312 stolen bases.

Beltran captured the AL Rookie of the Year Award in 1999 and won three Gold Glove and two Silver Slugger awards.



NEW YORK (AP) — Duke is still the top team in the first men’s basketball poll of the regular season.

The Blue Devils have won their first two games since being installed as the No. 1 team in the preseason poll.

Fifth-ranked Villanova is followed by Wichita State, Kentucky, Florida, North Carolina and Southern California.

The UConn Huskies continue their run at No. 1 in the AP women’s basketball poll following their rout of Stanford on Sunday. Texas is second, ahead of Baylor, South Carolina and Louisville.


In world and national news…

WASHINGTON (AP) — In a move that could intensify the government’s investigation of Russian meddling in the U.S. presidential election, Donald Trump Jr. has made public several Twitter exchanges he had with the anti-secrecy group WikiLeaks during and after the 2016 election. These documents include requests from Wikileaks to publicize its information drop. Trump Jr.’s release came hours after The Atlantic first reported the messages. Trump Jr. sought to minimize the impact of the exchanges

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran’s state-run news agency says the country’s death toll from the powerful earthquake that struck the Iran-Iraq border has risen to 530. The report Tuesday afternoon by the IRNA news agency said the number of injured in the temblor now stood at 7,460. The magnitude 7.3 earthquake struck Sunday night Iran time, just as people were going to bed. The worst damage appeared to be in the Kurdish town of Sarpol-e-Zahab in the western Iranian province of Kermanshah.

MANILA, Philippines (AP) — President Donald Trump is heading home following an extensive tour of Asia that he says has been “tremendously successful.” The president says he has put the world on notice that the “rules have changed” for countries that want to trade with the U.S. Trump is teasing a “major statement” on trade and the overseas trip later this week at the White House, where he is expected to promote congressional Republicans’ plan to overhaul the nation’s tax code.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Roy Moore’s support from his fellow Republicans is hemorrhaging after a second woman accused the Alabaman of groping her when she was a teenager in the late 1970s. It’s the latest blows to his effort to win an open Senate seat that suddenly seems up for grabs. Moore denied the newest allegations at a news conference after a tearful Beverly Young Nelson said she thought he would rape her.

UNDATED (AP) — The explosive revelations about Harvey Weinstein that rocked Hollywood and sparked a flurry of sexual harassment, assault or misconduct allegations in other American industries, as well as the political arena, are reaching far beyond just the United States borders. Emboldened by the women, and men, who have spoken up in America, the “Weinstein Effect” is rippling across the globe.
