The forecast for Wednesday is looking quite wet, mainly across

central North Dakota. Showers and storms look likely through the

day as remnants from Tuesday night`s precipitation continue.

The bigger threat appears to be the potential for minor flooding, mainly in urban areas as soil moisture is rather low across the area. The flood threat

appears to be due to a prolonged period of moderate rain


Although most of the rainfall should be moderate in nature, pockets of heavy rainfall will be possible as well. Some areas in central

North Dakota over 2 inches of rain on Wednesday.

Even more rainfall appears likely Wednesday night into Thursday.

The trend looks to continue into the weekend, bringing continued

chances for showers and storms through Sunday.


Jamestown  (CSi)  The Jamestown Public School Board on Monday unanimously approved an increase for  the posted salary for a network specialist position.

The post was unfilled for 18 months,  despite an hourly wage increase, and Superintendent, Robert Lech said, the vacancy caused large staffing and productivity issues for the  Technology Department.

Lech requested that the position be moved from the support staff wage scale to the non-teaching professionals wage scale with a salary commensurate to the teacher salary base.

Jamestown Public Schools, Technology Director, Mike Armitage,  presented the proposed 2019-2020 District Technology Plan.

The school board unanimously approved plan.

The next negotiating session with the Jamestown Education Association is set for  June 27 at 5-p.m. at the Middle School’s Thompson Community Room.

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

Jamestown  (CSi)  Siting a unique menu, the owner of Hula’s Fire Grill in Jamestown announces that the restaurant will close for business on Saturday June 22.

The restaurant offered an eclectic blend of Asian, American and Hawaiian spices, prepared with an island flair.

Jerry Wong also says the fact that the restaurant didn’t have a liquor license may have been a contributing factor to the low number of patrons.

The restaurant opened at 110 2nd Street Northwest in Jamestown in February of this year.

The Jamestown Area Chamber of Commerce reported at the ribbon cutting earlier this year that Hula Fire Grill was founded by Jerry and Sandy Wong with the original location in Williston.  They saw the opportunity for expansion and decided to open their second restaurant here in Jamestown. Hula Grill serves an eclectic blend of Asian, American and Hawaiian spices, prepared with an island flair and served with a heavy dose of Hawaiian hospitality.


BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota officials have confirmed the presence of zebra mussels in Lake Ashtabula.

The state’s Game and Fish Department says an angler discovered a suspected zebra mussel last week and turned it in. Subsequent inspections found populations of zebra mussels of various ages throughout the lake.

Lake Ashtabula is an impoundment on the Sheyenne River in Barnes and Griggs counties. It’s operated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and open for boating, swimming, fishing, camping and skiing.

The Game and Fish Department has now classified Lake Ashtabula and the Sheyenne River downstream all the way to the Red River as Class I aquatic nuisance species infested waters.

Emergency rules go into effect immediately to prohibit moving water away from the lake and river, including water for transferring bait.


PARSHALL, N.D. (AP) — The North Dakota Highway Patrol says a motorcyclist has died after crashing his Harley in Mclean County.

The patrol says 69-year-old Larry Snyder lost control of his bike on Highway 1804 and rolled into the ditch south of Parshall Saturday.

White Shield Ambulance took him to Garrison Memorial Hospital and he was later transferred by helicopter to Trinity Hospital in Minot where he died on Sunday.


FARGO, N.D. (AP) — A former North Dakota grain trader accused in a multi-million dollar fraud scheme has signed a plea agreement in federal court.

Authorities say 22-year-old Hunter Hanson, of Leeds, bilked about 60 farmers, elevators and commodity brokers in North Dakota, Minnesota and Canada. The deal calls for him to plead guilty to wire fraud and money laundering and play back about $11.4 million.

Court documents unsealed Monday show that Hanson contracted with farmers and grain elevators last year to buy crops and either failed to pay them or sent them checks that bounced. He allegedly laundered money between his multiple bank accounts and other businesses.

The actions led the state Public Service Commission to shut down the Devils Lake-based company.

Defense attorney Lucas Wynne did not immediately return a phone message Monday seeking comment.

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Four North Dakota law enforcement agencies are teaming with the U.S. Marshals Service to expand its High Plains Fugitive Task Force to the Bismarck-Mandan area.

Sheriff’s offices from Morton and Burleigh counties, along with police from Bismarck and Mandan have agreed to commit manpower and resources to help the agency arrest fugitives wanted on federal and state felony warrants.

U.S. Marshal Dallas Carlson says the plan for expanding the task force has been in the works for about a year. Carlson says it will draw on the success of a similar effort in eastern North Dakota.

The Bismarck Tribune says last year, the U.S. Marshals task forces nationwide arrested nearly 83,000 fugitives and cleared more than 101,000 warrants.


BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Some north Bismarck residents are complaining about calcium deposits in water from their faucets at home.

Bismarck’s director of utility operations, Michelle Klose, says the problem has been identified in at least 64 mainly newer homes on the outskirts of the city.

The Bismarck Tribune reports that Klose says the residue does not present a health risk.

Greg Wavra, administrator of the North Dakota Drinking Water Program, says Bismarck’s water meets the requirements of the federal Safe Drinking Water Act and that calcium buildup should not be a cause for alarm.

The city says magnesium heating rods may cause the deposits and suggests that homeowners switch to aluminum heating rods and lower the temperature of water heaters to mitigate the problem.

Sharks sign D Erik Karlsson to $92M, 8-year deal

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) _ The San Jose Sharks have re-signed pending free agent defenseman Erik Karlsson to a $92 million, eight-year deal.

Confirming a report published by online news publication Mediapart, the official says Platini was taken into custody today as part of the investigation into the awarding of the tournament to Qatar.

In world and national news…

WASHINGTON (AP) — China’s top diplomat has warned the United States against opening a “Pandora’s box” in the Middle East after a recent flare-up in tension between Washington and Tehran.

Foreign Minister Wang Yi called on both countries to avoid escalating the situation, echoing earlier statements by Chinese officials following last week’s apparent attacks on two oil tankers near the strategic Strait of Hormuz and the Persian Gulf.

Wang spoke on Tuesday at a news conference in Beijing after meeting his Syrian counterpart, Walid al-Moallem.

Iran has denied a U.S. accusation that it was behind the attacks, which hit Norwegian and Japanese ships off Iran’s coast. Each vessel was loaded with petroleum products, and one was set ablaze.

China is the world’s largest buyer of Iranian oil and has maintained its support for the Iran nuclear deal.



WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is threatening to remove millions of people in the country illegally.

In a late-night tweet Monday, Trump says U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement will begin the removal process next week. He tells his Twitter followers, “They will be removed as fast as they come in.”

An administration official says the effort will focus on people who have been issued final deportation orders by federal judges but remain at large in the country.

Trump has threatened a series of increasingly drastic actions as he tries to stem the flow of Central American migrants crossing the southern border, which has risen dramatically on his watch.

Immigration is expected to be a central issue of Trump’s 2020 reelection campaign, which officially launches Tuesday.



(AP)  Suicide, long the leading cause of death in U.S. jails, hit a high of 50 deaths for every 100,000 inmates in 2014, the last year for government data. That’s 2½ times the rate of suicides in state prisons and about 3½ times that of the general population.

It’s a problem commonly blamed on the fact that more mentally ill people are landing behind bars. But increasingly, troubling questions are being raised about the treatment of inmates, possible patterns of neglect and whether better care could have stopped suicides.

An Associated Press/Capital News Service report finds that scores of jails have been sued or investigated for allegedly refusing inmates medication, ignoring cries for help or failing to monitor them despite warnings they might harm themselves.


HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — The father of a 6-year-old killed in the 2012 shooting at the Sandy Hook Elementary School has won a defamation suit against the authors of a book that claimed the shooting never happened.

A Wisconsin judge on Monday ruled that Lenny Pozner had been defamed by James Fetzer and Mike Palacek, the authors of the book “Nobody Died at Sandy Hook.” Damages will be decided in October.

The decision is the latest victory for victims’ relatives who have been taking a more aggressive stance against conspiracy theorists.

The publisher, Moon Rock Books, also has agreed to stop selling the book in a settlement with Pozner.

Noah was among 20 first graders and six educators killed at the school.



SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Facebook is launching a new digital currency to make e-commerce accessible to more people around the world.

The social media giant is announcing Libra, a cryptocurrency it is creating with more than two dozen partners including Uber, PayPal, Visa and Spotify.

The digital currency will be backed by a reserve of existing currencies from around the world likely including the U.S. dollar, the euro and the yen.

Facebook’s long rumored currency will launch to the public early next year. It is likely to spark privacy concerns with people who are wary about giving Facebook more information about themselves.

But Facebook says it will keep financial data secure and separate from its social media sites.

Libra will be governed by a nonprofit made up of the founding companies and non-governmental organizations.
