Jamestown  (CSi)  Jamestown’s Mayor-Elect, Dwaine Heinrich will take the oath of  the office of mayor at the Jun 26th Organization Meeting of the new city council, at 4-p.m., at City.

On the Monday, June 18th,  Wayne Byers Show on CSi Cable 2, on winning the election over two term Jamestown Mayor Katie Andersen, and challenger Joshua Meade, Heinrich said he felt he was a viable alternative to the mayoral candidates on the ballot, and that he appreciates the support of voters.  He plans to make himself available to citizens, and passed along his cell phone number on the show 701-269-1128.

As of now, he hasn’t determined his office hours at city hall, noting that he has a more flexible schedule with changes to his business’ structure, to dedicate the office of mayor.

One of the campaign issues he clarified on our show is that he is definitely in favor of continuing and improving residential recycling in Jamestown.  He said during the campaign rumors indicated he was not in favor of recycling, which is not true.

He said the current recycler needs to continue to look at a sorting process locally, of the materials collected, and city officials need to make sure recycling is properly executed, and additional education is likely needed so residents are putting the appropriate items in the recycling containers.

He said if the Jamestown residential recycling program is not handled well, by the current recycler, another recycler would need to be sought.

Heinrich pointed out that he will meet with city council members, and make committee assignments.  He also wants to review the city’s financial condition, including dollars in the city’s reserve fund and deficit spending, noting that the 2019 budget meetings will be starting soon.

He wants the state to look at charging state sales tax for items individuals purchase on line in an effort to keep “brick and mortar,” business in operation, in addition to adding to the city’s sale tax base.

Heinrich also wants to look into reviewing the number of outside consultants the city hires, concerning costs to the city.

With the proposed railroad overpass at Third Street Southeast, he feels that the plan is not practical, and that the city needs to look into improving the current underpass at the viaduct.

He said the method of funding an overpass, needs to be reviewed as well, and  any local costs.

On the proposal for the “road diet” plan concerning the changes relative to traffic flow issues, downtown, he suggested painting street markings on the pavement to “test” how the changes are affecting traffic.  He said changing the traffic flow on major city streets, also affects the flow of traffic on side streets.  He added that improved traffic lights are also needed in the city.

He questioned if the city will be receiving grant dollars for the project, which has yet to be determined.

He also brought up possible snow clearing issues under the plan, and noted that “bump-outs” under the plan would mean a costly relocating of storm sewer inlets.

On our show, he indicated that during the 10 years he previously spent as a city council member, the city implemented the  city council’s Consent Agenda, shortening the length of meetings, and that with cooperation of former city council member, Jeff Wilhelm, the City Wide Clean Up program was started.  He also pointed out that during his tenure on the city council, the city implemented city employee’s coming under the North Dakota retirement plan.   Heinrich added that the Jamestown garbage pick up routes were restructured including commercial garbage pick up.

On another topic said there is one other individual, in the United States, a farmer in California also named, “Dwaine Heinrich,” with the same spelling.  He discovered the Jamestown Dwaine Heinrich’s election campaign and requested a campaign sign, which Jamestown’s Heinrich obliged, saying he will send him a 4×4 campaign sign.

The California man indicated that he plans to hang the sign in his barn.

Jamestown  (CSi)  A former Stutsman County Deputy has announced her bid, running for Stutsman County Sheriff and plans to be on the November General Election.

Elizabeth Kapp on her Facebook page says, “ I would like to thank the people who wrote my name on the primary ballot for Sheriff of Stutsman County.

Since I received more than enough votes to be on the November 2018 general election ballot, I will accept this opportunity to run for Sheriff.

My campaign will focus upon building strong community connections, community policing, and ensuring the safety of the citizens of Stutsman County.

I would appreciate your support in the upcoming November election.”

Kapp had 139 write-in votes in the June 12th Stutsman County primary,  148 after canvassing on Monday, of the 169 write-ins, with 130 needed, to qualify her to become a ballot candidate in the November elections, to run against incumbent Sheriff, Chad Kaiser, who was unopposed on the June primary ballot and received 2810 votes.

Stutsman County Sheriff Chad Kaiser terminated Elizabeth Kapp on February, 27, 2016, and according to Kapp’s termination letter she was terminated for violating the Peace Officer Code of Conduct, violating the Peace Officer Oath and the Employee Code of Conduct per the Stutsman County Personnel Police. Kapp also allegedly was insubordinate and used offensive language and conduct.

The Stutsman County Grievance Committee unanimously ruled to uphold the termination of a former Stutsman County Sheriff’s Office sergeant.

The Stutsman County Commission, upheld the termination of former Sheriff’s Deputy, Sgt., Elizabeth Kapp, by Stutsman County Sheriff, Chad Kaiser.

The North Dakota Department of Labor, found in favor of Kaiser.


Jamestown (CSi)  The Jamestown Public School Board has confirmed the results of the June 12th elections.

As reported previously rural board member Sedrick Trevithick had moved outside the rural school district, in the Barnes County North District, and ineligible to serve on the board.

Superintendent Rob Lech says, Trevithick’s vacant seat, will need to be filled by appointment  or special election, that would need to be held within 60 days.

The other rural seat, currently held by Greg Allen, had no candidates.

Allen received the majority of write-in votes, and he has agreed to serve another term.

He has served more than 20 years on the school board.

Lech thanked both Brenda Roemmich and Sedrick Trevithick for their services to the district as they leave the school board following last Tuesday’s school board election.

In other business, the school board will be releasing the long-term planning report.

The school board noted that the district will no longer be deficit spending, due budget cutting.

The meeting was recorded by CSi 10 The Replay Channel with showings starting Tuesday.

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Health officials in North Dakota have confirmed at least one person has contracted the mosquito-borne West Nile virus.

It’s the first-reported case of the virus this year, which is spread by mosquitoes. North Dakota Department of Health tests also show a pool of mosquitoes tested positive for the virus in Grand Forks.

Severe cases can be fatal and cause confusion, paralysis and coma. Milder cases can lead to fever, headache, aches and rashes.

Health officials say 62 people contracted the virus in North Dakota last year, resulting in two deaths.

State epidemiologist Jenny Galbraith said Monday that people can limit the spread of the disease by wearing insect repellent, protective clothing and by removing standing pools of water where mosquitoes lay eggs.


BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A company supplying fertilizer to farmers in North Dakota, South Dakota and Montana is focusing on expanding partnerships after overcoming some challenges in its first year.

Half of Dakota Gasification Company’s business is now fertilizer with the addition of the Great Plains Synfuels Plant, which produces agricultural fertilizer like urea, sulfate and anhydrous ammonia, The Bismarck Tribune reported .

The company faced difficulties last month after a late spring unexpectedly sent farmers from across the upper Midwest to seek the manufacturer’s product all at the same time, said Trinity Turnbow, operations manager.

“From May 1 through May 12, 85,000 tons of urea was loaded and left the plant,” he said.

More than 100 trucks lined up daily for several days, with wait times spanning hours, Turnbow said. The company had a second loading bay for rail and truck traffic, but put off the necessary third-party certifications because the company thought train traffic wouldn’t pick up until later.



ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Passions ran high though people remained polite as Minnesota regulators opened a key hearing that’s meant to lead to a final decision on whether to approve Enbridge Energy’s proposal for replacing its deteriorating Line 3 crude oil pipeline across northern Minnesota.

A crowd that was about evenly divided between supporters and opponents began lining up early Monday morning for the limited seating. People held signs outside reading, “Minnesotans for Line 3” or “No Pipelines — Keep it in the Ground” and “Love Water, Not Oil.”

The crowd grew to over 200 by the time the Public Utilities Commission began hearing final arguments in the long-running proceedings. The five-member commission plans to decide next week whether the project is needed. If they choose in favor, they’ll decide if it should follow the company’s preferred route or another path.

UNDATED (AP) — The NHL’s most recent Stanley Cup-winning coach is now a free agent.

Barry Trotz has stepped down less than two weeks after leading the Washington Capitals to their first championship. Trotz and the team could not agree on an annual salary that would have put him in line with other Cup-winning coaches.

A person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press that the Stanley Cup final win over Vegas triggered a two-year extension for Trotz that would have given him a slight bump in salary to just over $2 million. Mike Babcock is getting $6.25 from the Maple Leafs, and Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville (KWEHN’-vihl) makes $6 million after leading the club to three Stanley Cups in this decade.

Capitals associate coach Todd Reirden is now the leading candidate to replace Trotz. The New York Islanders are currently the only NHL team without a head coach.

Elsewhere in the NHL:

— Former NHL coach Dave Tippett has signed on as senior adviser for the group looking to put an NHL expansion team in Seattle. The city is in the middle of the expansion process with the goal of renovating KeyArena and starting up for the 2020-21 season.

In world and national news


BROWNSVILLE, Texas (AP) — An audio recording that appears to capture the heartbreaking voices of Spanish-speaking children crying out for their parents at a U.S. immigration facility has stoked the outrage over the Trump administration’s policy of separating immigrant children from their parents.

“Papa! Papa!” one child is heard saying in the audio file that was first reported by the nonprofit ProPublica and later provided to The Associated Press.

Human rights attorney Jennifer Harbury said she received the tape from a whistleblower and told ProPublica it was recorded in the last week. She did not provide details about where exactly it was recorded.



WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump and House Republicans are set for a crucial meeting as lawmakers push to end the policy of separating children from their parents at the southern border.

Members of both parties are decrying the administration’s “zero tolerance” approach to migrant detention. Many of them are demanding that the administration act to keep families together.

Legislation in the House could end the family separations, but it appears unlikely to pass. Senators say they may soon work on a bill of their own.

The Trump administration says the family separations are required under the law and can only be ended by Congress. Democrats say Trump is refusing to take responsibility for his own policy.



BEIJING (AP) — State broadcaster China Central Television has shown Chinese President Xi Jinping welcoming North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on a visit to Beijing.

CCTV showed Kim in talks with Xi on Tuesday at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing. Experts have said Kim is expected to discuss his next steps with Chinese leaders after last week’s nuclear summit with U.S. President Donald Trump.

Kim’s two-day visit to Beijing, while expected, is one way for China to highlight its crucial role in U.S. efforts to get North Korea to abandon its nuclear program. The U.S. has long looked to China to use its influence with North Korea to bring it to negotiations, but the visit comes as ties between Beijing and Washington are being tested by a major trade dispute.



SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — South Korea says a joint military exercise scheduled with the U.S. has been suspended to support ongoing talks both countries have with North Korea.

Defense Ministry spokeswoman Choi Hyun-soo said Tuesday that her government believes the decision will help maintain momentum in the talks.

She spoke after the U.S. and South Korea announced that the Ulchi Freedom Guardian drills slated for August have been called off.

The announcement was widely anticipated following President Donald Trump’s meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un last week.

Trump said after the summit that he would suspend the U.S. military’s “war games” with South Korea unless the talks on ending North Korea’s nuclear weapons program break down. His statement appeared to catch both South Korea and the Pentagon by surprise.



COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado (AP) — The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is expected to decide soon whether to give its first approval to a prescription drug made from the marijuana plant.

But parents who have used other products containing chemicals from the plant to treat their children’s severe forms of epilepsy are feeling more cautious than celebratory.

They want assurance that existing medical marijuana markets in more than two dozen states won’t be harmed if the drug called Epidiolex (Eh-peh-DYE’-oh-lex) gets approved.

In particular, some advocates worry that drugmaker GW Pharmaceuticals has lobbied for changes to several states’ definition of marijuana, seeking legal cover for pharmacies to sell cannabis-derived products that have the FDA’s backing.

A company representative says GW Pharmaceuticals only wants to ensure its product can reach patients.
