MANDAN, N.D. (AP) — Students and friends in North Dakota are planning a memorial and auction to mark the life of a longtime art teacher who died last year.

The Bismarck Tribune reports that 70-year-old Diane Boschee died in November after battling cancer for several years. Nicknamed “The Queen of Flash and Trash,” Boschee taught art education at Mandan High School from 1974 to 2001.

Loved ones will hold a memorial and art sale for Boschee at the school Saturday. Pieces of her own artwork and personal collections will be sold at the school and online, with half the proceeds going to the school’s art department.

John Gieser is the current art teacher and a 1998 graduate of the school. He says Boschee is “pretty much legend status around here.”


MINOT, N.D. (AP) — The North Dakota Supreme Court has upheld the conviction of Minot man who admitted killing his brother two years ago.

The Minot Daily News reports that 28-year-old Adolfo Contreras-Castillo appealed to the Supreme Court and asked to withdraw his guilty plea on the basis that his defense attorney did not adequately inform him regarding the implications a guilty plea would have to his immigration status.

The state argued that Contreras-Castillo was told at his initial appearance that a guilty plea could result in deportation.

Contreras-Castillo pleaded guilty in August 2016 to killing 28-year-old Ignacio Contreras-Castillo during an argument in March of that year. He was sentenced to 35 years in prison.



WATFORD CITY, N.D. (AP) — A North Dakota sheriff who once faced a criminal charge and was suspended by the governor has apologized for some recent text messages.

Conservative blogger Rob Port obtained texts in which McKenzie County Sheriff Gary Schwartzenberger joked about the weight of his opponent in the upcoming election and also violence against immigrants.

Schwartzenberger in a Facebook apology said the texts he made to a then-friend were “inappropriate” and he regrets sending them. He didn’t immediately respond to an Associated Press request for comment.

Then-Gov. Jack Dalrymple suspended Schwartzenberger in 2016. Gov. Doug Burgum reinstated him last year after a special commissioner ruled there wasn’t enough evidence to support his removal.

A judge in January threw out a misdemeanor charge against Schwartzenberger related to his use of a county credit card.



BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — U.S. and Canadian officials are negotiating an end to a 16-year legal battle over a Missouri River water project in North Dakota, though the state of Missouri also has a stake and isn’t part of the discussions.

Court documents filed May 3 show the Canadian province of Manitoba proposed a settlement in the dispute over the Northwest Area Water Supply project, and the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation countered with an alternative.

“Manitoba, the Bureau and North Dakota are hopeful that within the next several weeks they will be able to agree to final settlement terms,” Manitoba attorney Scott DuBoff wrote.

NAWS aims to bring Missouri River water to tens of thousands of people in northwestern North Dakota, giving them a reliable source of quality water. Congress first authorized its construction in 1986, but it’s been tied up in the courts since Manitoba sued in 2002 over concerns about the possible transfer of harmful bacteria or other agents from the Missouri River Basin to the Hudson Bay Basin.

U.S. District Judge Rosemary Collyer in Washington, D.C., ruled last August that the project complies with federal environmental law, clearing the way for completion of the $244 million water system. Manitoba appealed.
