(NDHP) The North Dakota Highway Patrol reports,an 82 year-old Glenfield man was injured after his semi was struck by a BNSF Freight Train Thursday morning.

Arlo Stedman was traveling westbound on 15th Street Northeast from a soybean field to a rural grain elevator west of New Rockford when he failed to stop for an approaching freight train.

The grain trailer was struck by the train at the railroad crossing and the force of the collision sheared the trailer in half.

The semi and a portion of the trailer overturned onto its right side and came to rest on 15th Street NE. The other half came to rest on the north side of the railroad tracks west of the crossing.

Stedman suffered non-life threatening injuries and was transported by ambulance to CHI Saint Alexius Health Carrington. The BNSF Train crew was uninjured in the collision.

The scene was blocked for more than 3 hours due to investigation and clean-up. The train and all 83 cars were able to continue after the crash scene was cleared.

The incident remains under investigation by the North Dakota Highway Patrol.

Assisted by the Eddy County Sheriff’s Office, New Rockford Fire Department, and New Rockford Ambulance Service.


WEST FARGO, N.D. (AP) — School officials in West Fargo are investigating threats a middle school student allegedly made about a school shooting.

According to West Fargo Public Schools, a group of students at Cheney Middle School spoke to the school’s administration toward the end of the school day Wednesday about threats they were hearing from a fellow student about a school shooting.

In a statement, the district says the child’s parents were contacted and his locker was searched, but nothing was found.

The district says the student was not in school Thursday and also will be out of school Friday as the alleged threats are investigated.

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Services were held in Mexico for a former North Dakota woman and her four children and for four other American women and children killed by drug cartel gunmen.

The memorials and burials Thursday took place as Mexican soldiers stood guard, a reminder of the danger locals face living amid a drug cartel turf war. Six children and three women in all were killed in the attack on the convoy of three SUVs Monday.

In a grassy backyard before hundreds of attendees in La Mora, former North Dakotan Rhonita Miller was eulogized as an “innocent spirit” with a “beautiful heart.” Miller’s 7-month-old twins Titus and Tiana were remembered as “two perfect angels in the first precious moments of their lives.” Son Howard Jr. loved basketball and daughter Kristal was “the apple of her daddy’s eye.”

Bismarck (Gov. Burgum’s Office) – To help ranchers struggling with abnormally wet conditions for this time of year, Gov. Doug Burgum Thursday signed an executive order waiving hours of service requirements, fees and certain load restrictions for drivers of commercial vehicles transporting hay and livestock.

Record fall precipitation and cold temperatures have adversely affected ranchers and livestock producers, causing inadequate hay supplies to sustain livestock herds. Producers have been forced to purchase supplemental hay from other states, move herds to areas where feed supplies are more plentiful or, in extreme cases, sell off their herds. Truck drivers have had to move hay supplies in greater volumes and shorter times to meet the needs.

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A fall survey indicates the mule deer population continues to recover in the western North Dakota Badlands thanks to another good year of fawn production.

Mule deer in the region endured three straight harsh winters ending in 2011 that led to record-low fawn production.

The Bismarck Tribune reported Thursday that biologists counted 2,218 mule deer during the October survey, close to last year’s 2,446. The ratios of 41 bucks per 100 does and 84 fawns per 100 does also held steady.

State Wildlife Chief Jeb Williams says the stable numbers are encouraging even though they don’t represent an increase.

Hunting mule deer does was banned for four straight seasons beginning in 2012 to help the population recover.

North Dakota’s gun season for mule and white-tailed deer opens at noon Friday.

FARGO, N.D. (AP) — Longtime Minnesota U.S. Rep. Collin Peterson is waiting as usual to announce if he is running for re-election.

Peterson traditionally waits until early in an election year to announce his campaign. The 75-year-old conservative Democrat tells KFGO he will decide in January or February whether he’ll seek a 16th term.

But Peterson says he’s been doing “all the things” he normally does and has “been to some 40 parades.”

Former Lt. Gov. Michelle Fischbach is running for the GOP nomination to challenge Peterson. Also seeking the GOP nomination is Dave Hughes, who is making his third run for the seat.

Peterson also says he has no regrets about being one of only two House Democrats to vote against a rules package for an impeachment probe of President Donald Trump.

Hunt eligible to play for Browns Sunday

UNDATED (AP) _ The Cleveland Browns will have a new running back when they take on the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.

Kareem Hunt has been officially reinstated to the roster this week after serving the eight-game suspension he received from the NFL for two physical off-field altercations. Hunt has been practicing for two weeks and is eligible to be on the field this weekend.

He was signed by the Browns in February after being released by Kansas City two months earlier. The Chiefs said he lied to them about an incident in which he shoved and kicked a woman during an argument.

Hunt led the league in rushing as a rookie in 2017.

Also around the NFL:

_ Saints running back Alvin Kamara says he feels good after practicing the last two days. Kamara missed two games with ankle and knee injuries after running for 373 yards and grabbing 33 passes for another 276 yards in New Orleans’ first six games.

_ A person familiar with the negotiations says Browns center JC Tretter has agreed to a three-year, $32.5 million contract extension. The source says Tretter will receive a guaranteed $23 million in a deal that was first reported by NFL Network.


Celts win in Walker’s return to Charlotte.

UNDATED (AP) _ Kemba Walker was a winner in his return to Charlotte.

Walker missed his first six shots before finishing with 14 points and six assists in the Boston Celtics’ sixth straight win, 108-87 over the Hornets. He received a rousing, one-minute standing ovation from the home crowd after the Hornets showed a highlight tribute on the videoboard that left the point guard in tears. The three-time All-Star played eight NBA seasons in Charlotte and is the franchise’s all-time leading scorer.

Jayson Tatum scored 23 points to help the Celtics say unbeaten since their opening-night loss at Philadelphia.

Gordon Hayward added 20 points and 10 rebounds for the Celtics, who scored 17 points off 21 Charlotte turnovers.

Williamson says no timetable for return

UNDATED (AP) _ New Orleans Pelicans rookie forward Zion Williamson says he expects to miss less than half the regular season due to his knee injury but is offering no specific timetable for a return.

In other NBA news:

_ The league has fined the Clippers $50,000 for statements made by coach Doc Rivers and others that were “inconsistent with (Kawhi) Leonard’s health status.” The NBA says it confirmed that the team’s decision to sit Leonard for management of an injury was consistent with league rules, adding that the Clippers reasonably determined that the power forward is suffering from an ongoing injury to the patella tendon in his left knee.

_ Blake Griffin has been cleared by the Pistons’ medical staff for basketball-related activities. The power forward hasn’t played at all this season because of hamstring and knee issues that will be monitored daily by the team. The Pistons are 4-5 without Griffin, who averaged a career-high 24.5 points, 7.5 rebounds and 5.4 assists last season.

_ The 76ers will be without guard Ben Simmons for Friday’s game at Denver because of sprained AC joint in his right shoulder. Simmons was injured when he bumped into Royce O’Neal’s chest on a post-up during the first quarter of last night’s loss at Utah. The All-Star guard has averaged 13.1 points for the 5-2 Sixers, who have dropped their last two games.

_ Sean Couturier’s (koo-TOOR’-ee-ayz) flip shot trickled past a surprised Carey Price just 55 seconds into overtime to give the Flyers to a 3-2 victory over the Canadiens.

_ The Rangers won for the fifth time in seven games as Pavel Buchnevich (booch-NEH’-vihch) provided a goal and an assist in a 4-2 verdict over the Hurricanes. Henrik Lundqvist made a season-high 45 saves and Brendan Lemieux (leh-MYOO’) snapped a 1-1 tie with a power-play goal late in the second period.

_ The Blackhawks picked up a 5-2 win over the Canucks as Patrick Kane scored a power-play goal and had two assists. Alex DeBrincat (deh-BRIHN’-kat) and Andrew Shaw scored in the first period, and Dylan Strome (strohm) had three assists as Chicago dealt Vancouver its first regulation loss since Oct. 19 at New Jersey.

_ Noah Hanifin had a goal and two assists in the Flames’ 5-2 win over the Devils. Derek Ryan, Mikael Backlund, Sean Monahan and Johnny Gaudreau also scored for Calgary, which took control during a four-goal second period.

_ The Senators wasted a late lead before Jean-Gabriel Pageau (pa-ZHOH’) tallied 3:12 into OT to give Ottawa a 3-2 triumph over the Kings.

Woods adds self to Presidents Cup roster

UNDATED (AP) _ U.S. Presidents Cup captain Tiger Woods has used one of his four wild-card selections on himself.

The decision makes Woods the first playing captain in the tournament since Hale Irwin in the inaugural edition 25 years ago.

Woods is the reigning Masters champion and is No. 6 in the world ranking. He tied the PGA Tour record with his 82nd career victory, capturing the Zozo Championship in Japan two weekends ago.

Woods also took Tony Finau (FEE’-now), U.S. Open champion Gary Woodland and Patrick Reed as his other wild-card selections.

The Presidents Cup is Dec. 12-15 at Royal Melbourne.

Man charged in missing stepdaughter case caught in Florida

PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) — Authorities have arrested the man wanted in the disappearance of UFC heavyweight Walt Harris’ stepdaughter.

Jail records show Ibraheem Yazeed was arrested in Florida and booked into the Escambia County Jail early today. He’s charged with first-degree kidnapping in the disappearance of 19-year-old Aniah Blanchard, who was last seen at a gas station in Auburn, Alabama, on Oct. 23.

Blanchard was reported missing the next day. Her car was later found abandoned in Montgomery, more than 50 miles (90 kilometers) away. Police said the car contained evidence that Blanchard had been harmed.

Auburn police this week released images of Yazeed showing him at the gas station while Blanchard was there.


In world and national news…

RABAT, Morocco (AP) — Ivanka Trump is weighing in on the House impeachment inquiry of her father from half a world away in Morocco.

President Donald Trump’s daughter and White House adviser tells The Associated Press she shares her father’s view that the impeachment investigation is about “overturning the results of the 2016 election.”

But she seems to part ways with the president and allies who have been pressuring the news media to publicly identify the whistleblower whose complaint launched the investigation.

Ivanka Trump tells AP that the whistleblower’s identity is “not particularly relevant” to the inquiry. She wouldn’t speculate on the motives behind the whistleblower’s complaint.

The president’s daughter is wrapping up a three-day visit to Morocco, where she has been promoting a U.S. program aimed at helping empower women economically.



WASHINGTON (AP) — There were three words President Donald Trump wanted to hear from the Ukraine president: Investigations, Biden, Clinton.

That’s according to the transcript, released Thursday, of an impeachment inquiry interview with career State Department official George Kent.

Kent told investigators that that was his understanding of what Trump wanted Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskiy to say in order to unlock U.S. military aid, as relayed to the official by others, including those in direct contact with the president.


LA MORA, Mexico (AP) — After burying some of the nine American women and children slain in a cartel ambush, residents of this town of about 300 are left to come to grips with the fear the attacks inspired among the tightly knit community.

“I do not feel safe here, and I won’t, because the truth is we aren’t safe here as a community,” David Langford said at the funeral for his wife, Dawna Ray Langford.

While the sibling community of Colonia Le Baron has been peaceful since the 2009 murder of one of its members and subsequent installation of a security base, La Mora lacks such a presence — at least until Monday’s killings prompted state and federal forces to deploy in the town.

How long they stay could be crucial to its future.



BEIRUT (AP) — Residents of eastern Syria hope the U.S. troop mission there will have an impact far broader than just protecting oil fields, counting on it to bring stability and prosperity and keep out the Syrian government.

Expectations are being piled onto the operation, which keeps U.S. troops in the middle of a complex political geography packed with forces from multiple rivals, even after President Donald Trump flip-flopped on the scope and duration of the deployment.

Trump initially ordered all troops out of Syria last month, then decided to keep a force in place to hold the oil infrastructure.

That keeps the U.S. troops in the middle of eastern Syria’s complex political geography, rich in oil and gas and packed with Turkish, Kurdish, Russian, Syrian and Iranian-backed troops.



(AP)  As Turkish forces launched assault in northern Syria, social media users propagated images of Turkey’s soldiers hugging, cradling or feeding children.

But none of those images actually reflected the ongoing offensive in northern Syria. Some weren’t of Turkish soldiers. None of them were recent and some had been taken in other countries.

Experts say the false and misleading posts promoting Turkey appeared to get a boost from a coordinated network of Twitter accounts that amplified the content through trending hashtags and retweets.

The online campaign follows a pattern of social media propaganda that seeks to sway global opinion when controversial, international events erupt.

The images began making the rounds after President Donald Trump’s widely criticized withdrawal of U.S. troops opened the way for the Turkish offensive against the Kurds.



LONDON (AP) — Social media companies are under pressure to combat political misinformation ahead of next month’s general election in the United Kingdom.

The Dec. 12 election will be among the first since Twitter announced a ban on political ads to stem the flow of election-related misinformation.

Facebook has been criticized for its policy of not fact checking or removing false political ads, but the company insists it’s taking other steps to safeguard Britain’s election. They include the creation of an operations center to quickly identify online election hoaxes.

Despite those efforts, Britain remains vulnerable because government officials have yet to act on recommendations for preventing the spread of misleading political ads and content.

Misinformation played a significant role in Britain’s 2016 Brexit vote as well as in the U.S. election in 2016.
