BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — The North Dakota Department of Health says 63,840 gallons of produced water spilled from a pipeline release in Dunn County.The pipeline is part of a gathering system owned by Petro-Hunt LLC. The release happened Wednesday about 14 miles (23 kilometers) west of Killdeer and was reported Thursday.Produced water is a mixture of saltwater and oil that can contain drilling chemicals.The cause of the release is under investigation. The Health Department has inspected the site and will continue to monitor remediation.
KEENE, N.D.

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — The developer of the Dakota Access oil pipeline says environmental group Greenpeace should be held legally accountable for violating federal racketeering laws.

Texas-based Energy Transfer Partners sued Greenpeace and two other groups for up to $1 billion last year. The company alleges the groups worked to undermine the $3.8 billion pipeline that’s now shipping oil from North Dakota to Illinois.

A federal judge has dismissed the other two groups from the case. Greenpeace also wants to be dismissed. Greenpeace argues that ETP’s claims are “generalized and implausible.” But the company says there’s plentiful evidence of “malicious criminal conduct.”

The company alleges the group disseminated false information about the pipeline to obtain donations and incite unrest, which hurt ETP financially. The company says the group also organized and funded a violent protest faction.


VELVA, N.D. (AP) — Some residents of central North Dakota community would welcome a Dollar General store, but city officials want no part of it.

The Velva City Commission recently rejected the lone bid on a land sale after learning the developer planned to lease the property to Dollar General, the Minot Daily News reported. The retailer has about 14,000 stores nationwide.

Velva officials declined the developer’s offer of $100,000 for nearly 1.4 acres (0.6 hectares) on the city’s west side.

Commissioner Mary Liz Davis said officials didn’t want Dollar General to threaten existing businesses in Velva, particularly its grocery and drug stores. She said area businesses are already dealing with a worker shortage and a Dollar General would bring more employment competition to the area.

Davis acknowledged that the developer may find another property for the store.

“It’s not like we are stopping it,” Davis said. “We just don’t want to be a part of the process.”

NFL-BROWNS/JETSBrowns finally get a win
CLEVELAND (AP) — It finally happened. The 19-game winless streak is over. The Cleveland Browns have their first victory since December 2016, and their rookie quarterback led them to victory.The Browns trailed 14-0 near halftime before first overall pick Baker Mayfield entered the game and rallied Cleveland to its first win in 635 days, 21-17 over the New York Jets.Mayfield took over after Tyrod Taylor suffered a concussion.
The reigning Heisman Trophy winner finished 17 of 23 for 201 yards, leading four scoring drives and catching a pass for a two-point conversion.Carlos Hyde had a pair of one-yard touchdown runs, the last giving the Browns the lead with 2:04 remaining. Hyde carried 23 times for 98 yards.Jarvis Landry caught eight passes for 103 yards and threw the conversion pass to Mayfield that tied the game 14-14 in the third quarter.Sam Darnold didn’t fare well in a matchup of the first two quarterbacks taken in this year’s draft, completing 15 of 31 passes for 169 yards. The Jets had two chances to regain the lead after the two-minute warning, but the drives ended with interceptions by Darnold as New York fell to 1-2.The winless skid was the league’s second-longest since the 1970 NFL-AFL merger. The Browns are 1-1-1.NFL-NEWSReturns of Burks, Jones replenish Packers’ depthUNDATED (AP) — The Green Bay Packers might get injured inside linebacker Oren Burks back for their game Sunday at Washington.The rookie appeared to be in line to open the season as the starter inside alongside Blake Martinez when he hurt his shoulder during warmups before a preseason game last month in Oakland.

Depth has also been replenished at running back, where Aaron Jones figures to return on Sunday after missing the first two games due to a suspension for violating the league’s substance abuse policy.

Elsewhere in the NFL Thursday:

— Broncos quarterback Case Keenum returned to practice after missing a day with a sore knee. Keenum didn’t want to miss Wednesday’s workout but said he understood that being cautious in September will give him a better chance of staying in the lineup all season. He has led the Broncos to a pair of fourth-quarter comebacks, pushing his record over the last two seasons to 13-3.

— Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones says he’s “good” to play against New Orleans on Sunday despite missing his second day of practice with tightness in his calf. Jones says his absence from practice on Thursday was “just precaution.”

— Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette practiced in a limited capacity for the second straight day and feels “a lot better, like way better” than he did a week ago. Fournette strained his right hamstring in a season-opening win over the Giants at the Meadowlands and sat out last week’s victory against New England.

— Steelers star wide receiver Antonio Brown says he doesn’t want to be traded. He had earlier responded to criticism on social media by suggesting the team should trade him if it wants to find out how productive he can be when not playing with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. Brown admits that he’s got to do a better job of limiting distractions going forward.

— Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr. is sick of losing and frustrated with seemingly being asked to take tests every other week by the NFL for performance-enhancers. Beckham tweeted about the tests, saying, “It’s actually funny how I ‘randomly’ get tested every other week. Dear @NFL please stop sending these people, ur takin away from meeting times and film… thanks.” Beckham has never been suspended by the NFL for using a banned substance.



UNDATED (AP) — On the third try, the Boston Red Sox got it right.

Mookie Betts was 4-for-5 with five RBIs and three runs scored as the Red Sox pulled out an 11-6 win over the New York Yankees to capture their third straight AL East title. The Bosox dropped the first two games of the series and trailed 6-4 heading into the fifth inning before improving to a major league-best 104-49.

Jackie Bradley Jr. tied the game with a solo homer in the seventh. Later in the inning, Xander Bogaerts (BOH’-gahrts) lifted a sacrifice fly that was thrown away by outfielder Aaron Hicks, allowing a second run to score.

Betts capped the scoring with a three-run blast in the eighth off Aroldis (ah-ROHL’-dihs) Chapman, who was making his first appearance since coming off the disabled list. Brock Holt also went deep for the Bosox.

Boston’s rally came after Giancarlo Stanton launched a grand slam to erase the Yankees’ 4-2 deficit.

It’s the first time the Red Sox have won three straight division titles. They need one more victory to tie the club record set in 1912.

Luke Voit homered for the third time in two games, but the Yankees failed to complete the sweep.

New York is now 1 ½ games ahead of Oakland for the first AL wild card.

Checking out Thursday’s other major league action:

Stephen Piscotty added four ribbies, including a three-run homer that put the A’s ahead 5-1 in the third inning.

Swanson drew a bases-loaded walk to spark Atlanta’s four-run eighth.

— Tampa Bay’s five-game winning streak is over after the Blue Jays homered three times while erupting for seven runs in the bottom of the ninth to beat the Rays, 9-8. Justin Smoak won it with a solo shot, one pitch after Lourdes Gurriel’s (gur-ee-EHLZ’) three-run blast knotted the score. Danny Jansen hit two-run shot after the Rays scored five times in the seventh to take an 8-2 lead.

— The White Sox blew a 4-0 lead before Matt Davidson delivered an RBI single in the 11th inning to give Chicago a 5-4 victory at Cleveland. Yoan Moncada hit a two-run double and Omar Narvaez (nahr-VY’-ehz) added a solo shot before the Indians began to rally on third-inning homers by Francisco Lindor (lihn-DOHR’) and Michael Brantley. The White Sox avoided a season sweep of their nine games in Cleveland after the Indians outscored them 58-19 in the first eight meetings.

— Amed Rosario hit a leadoff single and scored on Jose Lobaton’s (LOH’-bah-tohnz) sacrifice fly to five the Mets a 5-4 win at Washington. Michael Conforto belted a two-run homer and Jay Bruce added a solo shot and two RBIs for New York. Anthony Rondon (rahn-DOHN’) slammed a two-run blast and rookie Juan Soto tied the game with an RBI double in the eighth.

— The Reds were 4-2 winners at Miami as Scooter Gennett (jeh-NEHT’) supplied a two-run homer and a two-run double. Cody Reed allowed five hits over six innings to win for only the second time in 12 major league decisions. Raisel Iglesias put the tying run on base in the ninth before notching his 29th save.




UNDATED (AP) — Pittsburgh Pirates starting pitcher Chad Kuhl will miss the entire 2019 season following Tommy John surgery on his right elbow.

Kuhl went 5-5 with a 4.55 ERA in 16 starts for the Bucs this season. The Pirates initially placed him on the disabled list in June because of right forearm soreness and gave him a month off hoping he’d avoid surgery.

In other MLB news:

— Mets infielder Wilmer Flores will miss the rest of the season because of soreness in both knees. Manager Mickey Callaway said surgery is not recommended at this time but adds that Flores has early-onset arthritis in both knees and will receive injections to alleviate the pain. Flores started 88 games at three infield positions this season and hit .267 with 11 home runs and 51 RBIs.

— Miami Marlins CEO Derek Jeter is hinting that manager Don Mattingly is expected to return next year as the ballclub continues its latest rebuilding effort.

Canadiens’ Domi suspended for preseason

UNDATED (AP) — Montreal Canadiens forward Max Domi (DOH’-mee) has been suspended for the remainder of the NHL preseason after punching Florida defenseman Aaron Ekblad during a preseason game Wednesday.

Domi was asking Ekblad to fight just as the third period began, but the Panthers star showed no interest in dropping the gloves. Domi punched him twice in the face before dropping his right glove and sucker-punching Ekblad to earn a minor, major and match penalty on the play.

Ekblad was taken off the ice and underwent the NHL’s concussion protocol, which he passed.

Despite protests, Russia’s anti-doping agency reinstated

UNDATED (AP) — The World Anti-Doping Agency has declared Russia’s scandal-ridden drug-fighting operation back in business. The decision is designed to bring a close to one of sports’ most notorious doping scandals but one bitterly disputed by hundreds of athletes and described as “treachery” by the lawyer for the man who exposed the corruption.

On a 9-2 vote, the executive committee took the advice of the agency’s compliance review panel and declared RUSADA as having satisfied conditions of reinstatement that were gradually softened over the summer.

In most tangible ways, the decision doesn’t change much. RUSADA has been up and running for a while, bringing one of the world’s largest testing programs back on line with the help of officials from Britain and elsewhere. Russia’s Olympic committee was brought back into the fold after the Pyeongchang Olympics, where athletes who could prove they were clean were able to compete as “Olympic Athletes from Russia.”


In world and national news…

WASHINGTON (AP) — A woman accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her decades ago may testify before a Senate committee but would like certain conditions met. A Senate aide says California college professor Christine Blasey Ford’s lawyer told Judiciary Committee staff the preference would be for Ford to testify next Thursday and she doesn’t want to be in the same room with Kavanaugh, who denies her allegation. President Donald Trump told Fox News on Thursday it’s a “sad situation.”


ISTANBUL (AP) — As about a million Uighurs and other Muslim minorities are held in Chinese internment camps that have alarmed a U.N. panel and the U.S. government, there is evidence the children of detainees and exiles are also being placed into dozens of orphanages across the far west region of Xinjiang. Experts say what China is doing echoes how white colonialists in North America and Australia treated indigenous children, while Uighurs fear that their ethnic identity is being wiped out one child at a time.


WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump’s former personal lawyer Michael Cohen says he’s providing “critical information” as part of the special counsel’s Russia investigation. Cohen pleaded guilty to campaign finance and other charges last month and tweeted Thursday he’s providing the information to prosecutors without a cooperation agreement. The Republican president has repeatedly trashed the investigation and called it a politically motivated and “rigged witch hunt.”


WASHINGTON (AP) — The often low-key Hawaii U.S. Sen. Mazie Hirono has stepped into the spotlight as one of the most outspoken senators defending a woman who accuses Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her decades ago. California college professor Christine Blasey Ford’s accusation has upended the previously smooth confirmation process for Kavanaugh, who denies assaulting her. Hirono said this week she wanted to tell men: “Just shut up and step up. Do the right thing, for a change.”


NEW YORK (AP) — Some investors are seeing and smelling green in marijuana stocks. Canada is getting ready to legalize pot next month, leading to giant gains for Canada-based companies listed on U.S. exchanges. The value of the British Columbia-based company Tilray has jumped tenfold since its initial public offering just two months ago. But Ken Mahoney, CEO of New York based Mahoney Asset Management, is cautious. He says, “We just went through this eight months ago with cryptocurrencies.”
