PORTLAND, N.D. (AP) — The North Dakota Highway Patrol has identified the man who died when his tractor rolled over in Traill County.

Authorities say 77-year-old Alton Anderson was pulling a sickle mower and cutting grass in a ditch near Portland last Friday when a tractor tire dropped into a sink hole and the vehicle rolled over on him.

The patrol says Anderson died at the scene.


BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Cleanup is underway after 21,000 gallons of brine oilfield wastewater leaked from an underground pipeline in western North Dakota and into an unnamed tributary of the Missouri River, the state Health Department said Monday.

State environmental scientist Bill Suess said the pipeline operator, Polar Midstream LLC, on Sunday reported the spill of produced water, a byproduct of oil production that contains saltwater and oil, and sometimes chemicals from hydraulic fracturing operations.

The spill occurred about 20 miles (32 kilometers) east of Williston and about a mile from Lake Sakakawea, the largest reservoir on the Missouri River.

Suess said Monday it did not appear the spill reached the lake.

The cause of the spill was not known Monday.


BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A Minnesota college student says she has raised $115,000 in a decade toward ending hunger in North Dakota.

Lauryn Hinckley was 9 years old and living in Bismarck, North Dakota, when she created Stopping Hunger One Backpack at a Time. Hinckley partnered with a United Way backpack program that offers $5 food bags to students in Bismarck and Mandan during the school year.

The Bismarck Tribune reports that volunteer coordinators say 1,300 students received food bags this past year.

Hinckley says around one in five North Dakota children go hungry, despite the state having the highest number of billionaires per capita.

The Sodexo Stop Hunger Foundation awarded Hinckley a $5,000 scholarship and a $5,000 grant in June for her hunger-relief efforts. She’s a sophomore at Concordia College in Moorhead, Minnesota.


In world and national news…

WASHINGTON (AP) — A former Arizona Republican senator who retired last year after clashing with President Donald Trump says GOP leaders should criticize the president for his tweets directed at four Democratic congresswomen of color.

Jeff Flake tells The Associated Press that as leaders, top congressional Republicans should say Trump’s comments are wrong. He also says the remarks can damage the GOP brand by further alienating millennials and suburban women already disenchanted with the party.

Flake says he understands that party leaders are reluctant to weigh in because it would pressure GOP incumbents seeking re-election in tight races to do the same, and that would be risky.

Flake says, “It’s just, good grief, you’ve got to stand for something.”

In the tweet, Trump said the Democratic congresswomen of color should “go back” to their original countries. The four congresswomen are American and three are U.S.-born.



WASHINGTON (AP) — Kamala Harris raised money from a group of attorneys on the same day she blasted their firm’s work on the Jeffrey Epstein case for calling “into question the integrity of our legal system.”

An invitation obtained by The Associated Press shows Harris’ husband headlined a Chicago fundraiser last Tuesday that was hosted by six Kirkland and Ellis partners.

The California senator was among several White House hopefuls to blast the handling of the Florida sexual abuse case a decade ago, when Epstein’s lawyers negotiated a deal that allowed him to avoid years in prison.

Her decision to move ahead with the fundraiser underscores the tension that can arise when a politician’s rhetoric collides with the need to raise money. Harris’ campaign says none of the partners worked on the case.



WASHINGTON (AP) — Mexican Foreign Relations Secretary Marcelo Ebrard says his country “does not agree with any measure that limits access to asylum. That was a reference to measures announced Monday by the U.S. government to end asylum protections for most migrants who arrive at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Ebrard said at a news conference that a “safe third country” agreement with the United States “is not going to happen,” though he later appeared to hedge on that, saying only it would need prior congressional approval.

He said Mexico would maintain its current asylum practices.

Mexico’s asylum system is also currently overwhelmed by a rise in requests.

The U.S. published a new rule in the Federal Register that says asylum seekers who pass through another country first will be ineligible for asylum at the U.S. southern border. The rule, expected to go into effect Tuesday, also applies to children who have crossed the U.S.-Mexico border alone.



MAUNA KEA, Hawaii (AP) — Hawaii officials have closed a road leading to the summit of the state’s tallest mountain, the site of an embattled giant telescope project.

The road was officially closed Monday, but protesters who say they’re protecting Mauna Kea from desecration had already blocked it.

A group of elders tied together at the entrance to the road are expected to be arrested. After speaking with police, protest leaders say the group will step aside, but the elders will remain.

Hundreds gathered to protest the $1.4 billion Thirty Meter Telescope, hoping to stop construction convoys from delivering equipment to the top.

Another group of telescope foes have attached themselves to a cattle grate on the ground. Protesters are singing and chanting.

Scientists hope building a massive telescope on a world-renowned location for astronomy will help answer fundamental questions about the universe.
