Bismarck  (NDHP)  A NDHP Trooper was on patrol on February 23, 2020 at approximately 2:56 PM on US Highway 281 near MM 164 north of Minnewaukan and attempted to stop a vehicle that was traveling at a speed of 83 mph in a 65 mph zone. While in the process of trying to stop the vehicle, the vehicle fled and increased its speed to 110 mph. The vehicle eventually lost control and ran off the roadway near MM 152 on US Highway 281 north of Oberon. The driver and passengers were uninjured. The Trooper found the vehicle and conducted a felony stop on the car and individuals. The individuals were taken into custody and the case was given to BIA for further investigation.

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A North Dakota man has been sentenced to 40 years in federal prison for sexual abuse of children under the age of 12. Thirty-eight-year-old Shayne Mason, of Mandaree, pleaded guilty last year to three counts of aggravated sexual abuse of a child. In addition to the prison sentence, he was ordered to serve a lifetime of supervised release. U.S. Attorney Drew Wrigley says the investigation began in 2017 when one of the three victims in the case told police that Mason had sexually assaulted her on the Spirit Lake Indian Reservation a decade earlier.


BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A 20-year-old Bismarck woman charged with felony child neglect following the death of her baby has been sentenced to two years of probation. Ashlynn Seymour pleaded guilty Friday. South Central District Judge James Hill sentenced her to five years in prison with all of it suspended but the 140 days she already had been behind bars. The boy’s father, Marcus Reineke, faces a late-March trial on the same charge. Authorities say the parents kept a filthy apartment and missed medical appointments for their son, who was born 3½ months premature and spent three months in neonatal intensive care.


FARGO, N.D. (AP) — Amy Klobuchar is heading to Middle America as soon as the Nevada caucuses wrap up. The Democrat will hope to be coming off a strong performance in the campaign’s first western test as she starts a four-state weekend swing. Klobuchar meets volunteers Saturday night in Minneapolis. Then she heads to Fargo, North Dakota, on Sunday, part of a day that will also take her to Oklahoma City and Little Rock. Minnesota, Oklahoma and Arkansas are all in the collection of Super Tuesday states that vote March 3. North Dakota’s caucuses come a week later.


BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — The Bismarck Park Board has voted to keep the name of Custer Park, despite efforts to change it because of the eponym’s history with Native Americans. Lt. Col. George Armstrong Custer fought against Native Americans on the Great Plains in the 1860s and 1870s. Two Bismarck women led the effort to change the name. Three Affiliated Tribes member M. Angel Moniz says that to some, Custer is a reminder of violence and genocide. The Bismarck Tribune says commissioners on Thursday adopted a formal process to rename city parks and to install an educational marker at Custer Park. Under the new process, there can’t be another proposal to rename Custer Park for 15 years.

Survey finds Olympic, elite athletes struggling financially
