Jamestown  (CSi)  The Jamestown City Council met in Special Session on Tuesday, January 9th,  at the City Hall lower level conference room to interview a candidate for City Administrator.

Sarah Helleckson, solid waste coordinator for the city of Plymouth, Minnesota, who previously withdrew her candidacy, and was re-contacted by the search committee, to come in for an interview.

Other finalists included:

Chris Schilken, loan manager and lender at Prairie Federal Credit Union in Minot, and Aaron Mitchell, finance director for the City of West Fargo were previously interviewed.

The committee initially selected Shilken, however the offer was withdrawn, and further discussions terminated, voted on unanimously by the City Council which met in Executive Session on December 11, 2017, after the committee met with Schilkin on a possible contract, and salary negotiations.

The Council Members decided to look at further options.

City Administrator Jeff Fuchs tells CSiNewsNow.com that the search committee that met with Helleckson on Tuesday consists of the full City Council with all members present.

He says the committee will negotiate with Helleckson concerning pay and if the position offered will be a salaried position, or a civil service position.

City Administrator Fuchs informed the city last year that he was retiring on December 31, 2017.

However, as the search continued, the City Council offered Fuchs the opportunity to stay on past that date and until his successor was chosen on a part-time basis using a combination of his unused vacation pay and other pay arrangements, which he accepted.

Fuchs will work with his selected successor through the transition process.

Fuchs says that it’s hoped the  person selected will be hired and “in-house,” soon, and that he can fully retire by March 31st this year.

Bismarck  (CSi)  North Dakota Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem reports, that in 2017, one in four consumer complaints concerned an illegal robocall.

He says, “Based on comments I hear daily from North Dakotans, and my own experience, it’s easy to see why these robocalls are the top complaint. The calls are annoying and most often are nothing but scams that have cost consumers money. Plus, they are illegal in North Dakota.  I have no doubt that the number of complaints filed represents only a small fraction of citizens who find robocalls out of control. The Federal Trade Commission reported receiving 375,000 complaints a month in 2017.”

The consumer protection division received 1,125 consumer complaints in 2017. The top five complaint categories:

  1. Do Not Call/Robocall: 279
  2. Imposter Scams (grandparent, romance, IRS scam, sweepstakes, etc.): 119
  3. Contractor/Home Improvement: 88
  4. Debt Adjustment/Settlement, Credit Counseling: 75
  5. Identity Theft: 53

The remaining consumer complaints covered more than two dozen categories from advertising to warranties.

Last year, Stenehjem joined a bipartisan group of Attorneys General to urge the FCC to adopt new rules to help address the robocall and spoofing problem. Spoofing occurs when a caller falsifies the information transmitted to a caller ID display in order to hide their identity. The FCC responded with rules that allow telephone providers to block calls that come from invalid numbers and numbers that have not been assigned to anyone.

Stenehjen adds, “This change, together with consumers demanding their carriers use new technology to do a better job of blocking intrusive robocalls, should help alleviate the nuisance in the long term.”  He urged North Dakotans to press their telephone service providers to offer robocall-blocking technology.

Parrell Grossman, director of the consumer protection division, says consumers should heed the advice of the FCC:

  1. You may not be able to tell right away if an incoming call is spoofed. Be careful about responding to any request for personal identifying information.
  2. Never give out personal information, such as account numbers, passwords, mother’s maiden name, in response to unexpected calls.
  3. If you get an inquiry from someone saying they represent a company or government agency seeking information, hang up and call the phone number found on your account statement or on the agency’s website.


MANDAN, N.D. (AP) — Investigators say a man tried to stab a North Dakota police officer with a syringe during an arrest struggle.

Court records say the incident happened in Mandan, just west of Bismarck. Investigators say officers approached Kelly McLeod at a gas station and tried to arrest him on a probation warrant. He took off running but was tackled by a detective.

Authorities say McLeod tried stabbing the officer with a syringe filled with brown liquid that he said was deadly.

Officers backed off. Investigators say McLeod fled and broke into an apartment building where he was arrested. Police say they recovered a gun and a bag of heroin nearby.

KXMB reports McLeod made a court appearance Monday and bond was set at $50,000. It’s unclear if he has an attorney.


BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A state district judge has ruled that North Dakota’s law limiting damages in medical malpractice cases is unconstitutional.

The Bismarck Tribune reports the ruling came in a case involving a Fort Yates woman who suffered a disabling stroke due to a botched surgery at a Bismarck hospital. A jury last April awarded 35-year-old Chenille Condon $3.5 million.

South Central District Judge Cynthia Feland has denied a motion from CHI St. Alexius Health to reduce the jury’s verdict under a law that puts a $500,000 limit on damages for such things as suffering and emotional distress.

Feland ruled the law violates equal protection guaranteed by the state constitution by arbitrarily reducing damages for people who suffer the most severe injuries.

CHI St. Alexius Health says it’s exploring legal options.


BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A private security firm hired by the developer of the Dakota Access pipeline will on go trial in the fall for allegedly operating in North Dakota without a license.

North Dakota’s Private Investigative and Security Board sued North Carolina-based TigerSwan last June. Court documents show a five-day trial has been scheduled beginning Oct. 8.

TigerSwan was lambasted by pipeline opponents for aggressive tactics during months of protests. The company has said its efforts were aimed at creating a safe working environment and that it’s the victim of a smear campaign.

The state board is seeking administrative fines that could total thousands of dollars from the company and President James Reese for operating without a license, a misdemeanor carrying a potential sentence of 30 days in jail and a $1,500 fine.


BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Gov. Doug Burgum has signed an executive order establishing a new office aimed at addiction recovery and treatment initiatives.

Burgum signed the order Tuesday.

Burgum’s wife, Kathryn Helgaas Burgum, will chair an advisory council of up to seven members appointed by the governor that will guide the efforts. The council will include individuals in recovery, and community and tribal leaders.

Helgaas Burgum adopted addiction recovery as her platform as North Dakota’s first lady. Helgaas Burgum says she is a recovering alcoholic and wanted to use her experience to help others.

Burgum spokesman Mike Nowatzki says the office will not use state money. He says it will be funded through philanthropic grants, including from Burgum, who has refused a state salary.



BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — United Airlines is adding direct flights between Bismarck and Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport.

The two daily flights on 50-seat jets will begin June 7. They’ll complement United’s existing service between Bismarck and Denver.

United’s expanded offering in Bismarck is part of a larger service expansion announced by the airline.

American Airlines has offered flights between Bismarck and O’Hare since October 2014.


SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — Three Native American tribes in the Dakotas are suing opioid manufacturers and distributors, alleging they concealed and minimized the addiction risk of prescription drugs.

The Rosebud Sioux Tribe, Flandreau Santee Sioux Tribe and the Sisseton Wahpeton Oyate sued 24 opioid industry groups in federal court on Monday. Defendants include drug manufacturers Purdue Pharma, Teva Pharmaceutical Industries and Allergan, and distributors McKesson Corp., Cardinal Health Inc. and AmerisourceBergen Corp.

The lawsuit follows more than 70 similar cases filed across the country. Allegations include deceptive marketing, fraud and violations of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organization Act.

It is one of the first to tie claims to drugs’ the impact on Native Americans. The Cherokee Nation launched a similar suit in April.

The complaint seeks monetary damages and an “abatement fund” to pay for treatment programs.

The companies hadn’t responded to the suit as of Monday.


WATFORD CITY, N.D. (AP) — An employee at a Watford City accounting firm accused of participating in an oil patch fraud scheme is facing a felony charge.

The Bismarck Tribune reports that 38-year-old Hannah Lloyd is charged in state court with theft of property. Authorities say she funneled more than $57,300 from the Watford City Park District by using a fake employee’s name, two bank accounts and a limited liability company.

Another employee at the firm, Rene Johnson, is charged in federal court with mail fraud, wire fraud and making false statements. Johnson allegedly offered doubled returns for investors on a high-risk loan for Kingdom Dynamics Enterprise, a company that dealt with a man convicted of ordering the killings of two business associates.

Court documents do not list an attorney for Lloyd.

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — James Palmer Jr. had 18 points and Nebraska opened up a double-digit lead early in the second half then held off three Wisconsin surges to take a 63-59 win Tuesday night.

Nebraska (12-6, 3-2 Big Ten) led by as many as 13 early in the half, then saw the lead shrink to five as Wisconsin (9-9, 2-3) made five of six field goals.

The Huskers went back up by 10 at 50-40 when Thomas Allen hit a pair of free throws after a Wisconsin technical foul with 7:22 left.

The Badgers’ Ethan Happ then scored seven straight against one Nebraska free throw to cut the lead to 51-47 with 4:45 left. Three Nebraska free throws and a Palmer jumper, the Huskers’ last field goal of the game, put Nebraska back up by nine.

The Huskers led 62-53 after Isaac Copeland’s free throw with 11 seconds left. But Wisconsin’s Brevin Pritzl bombed in a long 3-pointer with just over 2 seconds left, Nebraska turned the ball over and Brad Davison hit another long-range 3 to pull Wisconsin to 62-59 with a second left.

Evan Taylor’s free throw then sealed the win for Nebraska.

Nebraska won the game at the free-throw line. The Huskers were 21 of 28 from the line, including 18 of 24 in the second half. Wisconsin made just 4 of its 10 free throws, 3 of 8 in the second half.

Isaac Copeland had 12 points for Nebraska.

Happ had 19 points and 11 rebounds for Wisconsin. Davison had 15 points and Pritzl scored 10.

The Star Tribune and the St. Paul Pioneer Press report the university’s Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action office found Lynch responsible for sexual misconduct in an alleged assault April 7, 2016.

UNDATED (AP) — Jon Gruden was welcomed back for a second stint as Oakland Raiders coach with an elaborate introductory news conference.

Gruden was greeted by owner Mark Davis on Tuesday with a video of the highlights from his first tenure in Oakland nearly 20 years after he was first introduced as coach as an unproven 34-year-old by late owner Al Davis.

Gruden coached the Raiders from 1998-2001 before being traded to Tampa Bay 16 years ago.

About 50 former Raiders were on hand for the event, including several of Gruden’s former players like Charles Woodson, Jerry Rice, Tim Brown and Rich Gannon.

Mark Davis said he had been trying to bring Gruden back for six years ever since taking over the franchise following his father’s death and the opportunity was finally right this year.

In world and national news…

WASHINGTON (AP) — A new report by congressional Democrats warns of deepening Russian interference throughout Europe and concludes that President Donald Trump has offered no strategic plan to safeguard democracies from Kremlin meddling. The report is the first from Congress to comprehensively detail Russian efforts to undermine democracies since the 2016 presidential election.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Bargainers seeking a bipartisan immigration accord plan talks as soon as Wednesday. President Donald Trump and leading lawmakers want to parlay an extraordinary White House meeting into momentum for resolving a politically blistering issue. They face a Jan. 19 deadline for averting an election-year government shutdown. Negotiators want a formula to revive protections against deportation that Trump has ended for nearly 800,000 immigrants and buttress border security.

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — South Korean President Moon Jae-in says he’s open to meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un if certain conditions are met, as he pushes for more talks and cooperation with the North to try to resolve the nuclear standoff. Moon has previously floated the idea of talks with Kim, but prospects for an inter-Korean summit remain low. His latest comments came a day after the North agreed to send a delegation to next month’s Winter Olympics in South Korea and hold talks on reducing animosity.

MONTECITO, Calif. (AP) — The search continues for victims of a storm that slammed a California coastal community, leaving at least 13 people dead and 25 injured. Authorities in Santa Barbara County are still looking for dead, injured or trapped people after a powerful mud flow swept away dozens of homes. Most deaths were believed to have occurred in Montecito, a wealthy enclave of about 9,000 people northwest of Los Angeles.

SAN SEBASTIAN SALITRILLO, El Salvador (AP) — Flor Tovar receives a lifeline every two weeks in the form of wired cash from her husband living in the United States. The money pays the $50 rent for a modest two-bedroom home in a low-income housing development. It also covers school transportation for their two sons, electricity, water, cable TV. Now a decision in Washington to end temporary protected status for nearly 200,000 Salvadorans like her husband has Tovar wondering what a future without that income will look like.
