BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — The North Dakota Department of Health says at least six people in the state have been sickened with an illness associated with bagged salad mixes. The cases are part of a larger outbreak occurring in Midwestern states. All six in North Dakota ate Marketside brand salad. The mixed salads were sold at Hy-Vee, Jewel-Osco and Aldi grocery stores and are contaminated with cyclospora, a parasite that can cause flu-like symptoms. The other brands are Hy-Vee and Little Salad Bar. Consumers in 12 states are affected by a recall of the products which have sickened dozens of people, including some who were hospitalized.

FARGO, N.D. (AP) — The mayor of Fargo says that while North Dakota’s most populous city and the state’s COVID-19 hotspot is making progress in controlling spread of the coronavirus, the July 4th holiday could be a challenge. Many residents in Cass County, where Fargo is located, spend the holiday congregating in the lakes country of northwestern Minnesota. Fargo Mayor Tim Mahoney says it will be a test of social distancing and other prevention practices. Mahoney says the county is heading in the right direction in terms of active cases, but adds that more people are “getting out and about.” He says officials will “find some things out” after the holiday weekend. Cass County saw 26 new COVID-19 cases Monday, more than half of the positive tests statewide in the last day.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A Minnesota judge is warning that he’s likely to move the trials of four police officers charged in George Floyd’s death out of Minneapolis if public officials and attorneys continue speaking out about the case. Hennepin County Judge Peter Cahill asked a prosecutor during a pretrial hearing on Monday to use his influence to get public officials to stop talking about the case. If they don’t, he says he’ll have to move the trial or trials, depending on whether the officers are tried together or separtely. Floyd, a Black man in handcuffs, died May 25 after Officer Derek Chauvin held his knee on Floyd’s neck for nearly 8 minutes. Some public officials were quick to call Floyd’s death “murder.”

In world and national news…

WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House says President Donald Trump wasn’t briefed on U.S. intelligence assessments that Russia secretly offered bounties to Taliban-linked militants for killing American troops in Afghanistan. White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnancy says that’s because the assessments had not been “verified.” She says Trump still has not been briefed on the intelligence, but she confirmed that the White House was briefing select members of Congress on the matter. It is rare for intelligence to be confirmed without a shadow of doubt before it is presented to senior government decision-makers.


SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — A former police officer who terrorized California as a serial burglar and rapist and killed more than a dozen people pleaded guilty to murders attributed to the Golden State Killer. Joseph James DeAngelo Jr. had remained almost silent in court since his 2018 arrest until he uttered the word “guilty” Monday in a hushed and raspy voice. He acknowledged he would plead guilty to 13 murders and admit to dozens of rapes. The plea agreement spares him the death penalty for a life sentence with no chance of parole. Prosecutors say DeAngelo muttered to himself after being arrested about an inner personality that had forced him to commit the crimes.


NEW YORK (AP) — Mayor Bill del Blasio says he’s proposing slashing the New York City police budget by $1 billion. With a “defund the police” sit-in protest continuing outside City Hall, de Blasio said Monday that the New York Police Department had found ways to find the cuts from its current $6 billion budget that would open up more funding for youth and other community programs. There was no immediate comment from the NYPD. Hundreds of demonstrators have been camped out in City Hall Park and demanding police defunding following weeks of protests over the death of George Floyd and other Black Americans killed by law enforcement.


(AP)  A group of protesters is suing Pittsburgh city and police officials, saying officers used unnecessary, excessive force to disperse a crowd protesting against police brutality and officials lied about the protesters’ behavior to justify that response. They say police officials lied about the events that led to the use of smoke, bean bags and alleged tear gas to disperse the protesters June 1. The protesters allege their constitutional rights were violated. Police have said an officer was threatened, and that bricks and other projectiles were thrown at officers before they used force to disperse people. They’ve denied they used tear gas when breaking up the protest.


NEW YORK (AP) — The shutdown on Broadway has been extended again — until at least early January. Although an exact date for performances to resume has yet to be determined, Broadway producers are now offering refunds and exchanges for tickets purchased for shows through Jan. 3. Broadway theaters abruptly closed on March 12, knocking out all shows — including 16 that were still scheduled to open — and postponing indefinitely the Tony Award schedule. Producers, citing health and city authorities, previously extended the shutdown to June 7 and then again to Sept. 6. Producers and labor unions are discussing ways theaters can reopen safely.


WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court has struck down a Louisiana law regulating abortion clinics, reasserting a commitment to abortion rights over fierce opposition from dissenting conservative justices in the first big abortion case of the Trump era. Chief Justice John Roberts joined with his four more liberal colleagues in ruling that the law requiring doctors who perform abortions to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals violates the abortion right the court first announced in the landmark Roe v. Wade decision in 1973. In two previous abortion cases, Roberts had favored restrictions. The Louisiana law is virtually identical to one in Texas that the court struck down in 2016.
