BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A Jamaican man who authorities said masterminded a lottery scam that defrauded at least 95 mostly elderly Americans out of more than $5.8 million has been sentenced to six years in federal prison.Prosecutors said 29-year-old Lavrick Willocks operated the scam out of a Jamaica mansion. They eventually charged 27 people and identified victims in several states.

It’s believed to be the first large-scale Jamaican lottery scam tried in U.S. courts. It was prosecuted in North Dakota because the investigation began there six years ago.

All of the defendants have pleaded guilty or been convicted. Willocks pleaded guilty in July 2017 to conspiracy, and prosecutors dropped 65 other counts of wire fraud, mail fraud and money laundering.

Willocks apologized for his involvement during Monday’s sentencing but denied being the kingpin.


FARGO, N.D. (AP) — An already tenuous bid for a second term has taken on new urgency for North Dakota Sen. Heidi Heitkamp since she voted against Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Heitkamp is scrambling to find her footing amid fears that the race against Republican Rep. Kevin Cramer is slipping away, and with it Democrats’ slim hopes of a Senate majority.

Trailing in polls with barely three weeks until Election Day, Heitkamp plans to camp out in North Dakota and lean harder into the same strategy, relying heavily on the economic hit her export-heavy state has taken under the Trump administration’s escalating trade war with China.

She also is considering a direct advertising attack on Cramer for awkward comments on sensitive subjects, especially related to the Kavanaugh confirmation.


In sports…

Bismarck  (CSi)  North Dakota Game and Fish reports, that interested hunters still have time to purchase a license for the 2018 deer gun hunting season.

As of Oct. 15, more than 90 antlerless white-tailed deer licenses remain in units 3F1, 3F2 and 4F. These licenses are available only to individuals who have not already received a lottery or landowner license, and are valid only during the regular deer gun season, Nov. 9-25.

Hunters are required to purchase a general game and habitat license before receiving a deer license.

North Dakota Century Code 20.1-03-02 reads “a person may not acquire any resident or nonresident license to hunt, catch, take or kill any small game or big game animal unless that person first obtains an annual general game license.”

The North Dakota Game and Fish Department will only mail deer licenses after the general game and habitat license is purchased.

Resident and nonresident hunters must purchase a remaining license online at the Game and Fish website, gf.nd.gov.


In world and national news…

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is suggesting that “rogue killers” may be responsible for whatever happened to missing Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi.

Trump told reporters as he departed the White House en route to Florida Monday that he spoke by phone with Saudi Arabia’s King and that “The King firmly denied any knowledge” of the disappearance.

Trump says he doesn’t “want to get” into King Salman’s mind, but says, “it sounded to me like maybe these could have been rogue killers.”

He adds: “We’re going to try getting to the bottom of it very soon, but his was a flat denial.”

Trump’s language was strikingly similar to the language he has used to describe Russian President Vladimir Putin’s denials of election meddling.

Turkish officials say they fear a Saudi hit team killed Khashoggi, who has been missing nearly two weeks.



ISTANBUL (AP) — A joint Saudi-Turkish team has entered the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul to search it, nearly two weeks after the disappearance of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

The team arrived Monday afternoon to the consulate in Istanbul’s upscale 4th Levent neighborhood as journalists filmed and shot photographs of their arrival.

It’s unclear what kind of search the officials will conduct and if it will involve forensics, especially since Khashoggi disappeared on Oct. 2.

A cleaning crew walked into the consulate hours ahead of the investigative team’s arrival.

Turkish officials have said they fear a Saudi hit team killed and dismembered Khashoggi, who wrote columns in the Washington Post that were critical of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

The kingdom has called such allegations “baseless” but has not offered any evidence Khashoggi ever left the consulate.




BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — Oregon Sen. Ron Wyden says the Trump administration is “trampling” on the rights of West Coast communities as it considers using military bases or other federal facilities for fossil fuel exports.

The Democratic Wyden said in statement Monday that the federal government should invest in renewable fuels and not try to prop up dirty energy sources such as coal.

The administration proposal was described to The Associated Press by Interior Sec. Ryan Zinke and two Republican lawmakers.

It’s tantamount to an end-run around West Coast officials who have rejected private-sector efforts to build new coal ports to ship the fuel to Asia.

Zinke says it’s a matter of national security to ensure U.S. allies in the Pacific Rim have access to affordable fuels.



MEXICO BEACH, Fla. (AP) — President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump have arrived in Florida to survey damage in the state as well in Georgia from Hurricane Michael.

Trump landed Monday at Eglin Air Force Base near Valparaiso. The White House has not identified the communities Trump will visit.

The president tweeted before leaving the White House that he will meet with law enforcement and government officials aiding the massive recovery effort. He said “maximum effort is taking place, everyone is working very hard.”

The Florida Panhandle took a direct hit from Michael. More than 190,000 homes and businesses in Florida remain without electricity, along with about 120,000 homes and businesses in Georgia.

The death toll currently stands at 17.



NEW YORK (AP) — Appliance maker Whirlpool says that it expects a “very limited impact” to its business from Sears’ descent into bankruptcy protection.

The company, known for refrigerators, washing machines, and other appliances, says that about 1 percent of its accounts receivable exposure is related to Sears.

Net sales to Sears represent less than 2 percent of the company’s global sales.

Whirlpool doesn’t expect the bankruptcy to have any impact on its 2018 guidance or long-term financial results.



EGLIN AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. (AP) — President Donald Trump is praising Florida Gov. Rick Scott for his response to Hurricane Michael.

Scott greeted Trump when he arrived in Florida on Monday to get his first up-close look at the devastation the storm caused along the Florida Panhandle.

Trump says “the job they’ve done is Florida has been incredible.” He also thanked Scott and told him he’s a “great governor.”

Scott says he’s gotten everything he’s asked for from the federal government.

The Florida Panhandle took a direct hit from Michael. More than 190,000 homes and businesses in Florida remain without electricity. Trump praised electric company crews for helping restore some power.

Trump and his wife, Melania, were headed out on an aerial tour of affected areas.
