Valley City  (CSi)  North Dakota Secretary of State Al Jaeger has approved a recall petition for circulation on Monday, July 19 to recall  North Dakota District 24 Representative  Dwight Kiefert after the Republican law maker voted to expel a colleague, Representative Luke Simons accused of sexual harassment earlier this year.

1,764 qualified elector signatures required for the petition

Those signing the petition need to be resident and U.S. citizens of Barnes County North Dakota for more than thirty days.

Recall committee chairman, Shane Anderson says that Representative Kiefert is being recalled for failing to meet the standards of a Republican found in the North Dakota Republican Party platform, the North Dakota Constitution, and the U.S. Constitution.

A majority of District 24 Republican Party members, in April of 2021  passed a resolution to censure Kiefert.

Kiefert says he expects similar ideologues in other parts of the state to initiate recall campaigns against other Republican members of the House who voted to expel Simons.





TORONTO (AP) — Canada will begin letting fully vaccinated U.S. citizens into Canada on Aug. 9, and those from the rest of the world on Sept. 7. Canadian officials say the 14-day quarantine requirement will be waived as of Aug. 9 for eligible travelers who are currently residing in the United States and have received a full course of a COVID-19 vaccine approved for use in Canada. Public Safety Minister Bill Blair said Monday a date for the U.S. to allow fully vaccinated Canadians to cross the land border isn’t yet known. Any Canadian can fly to the U.S.


BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — With nearly half the cattle in North Dakota in extreme drought locations, ranchers are making some tough decisions on thinning their herds. At Kist Livestock Auction in Mandan, weekly sales are up by 1,000 head over a normal year, an increase of one-third. Matt Lachenmeier, the auction barn’s field representative, says there’s a lot of cattle moving with some going to nearby states. Extension specialists say the rancher loses the genetics along with the time and effort it took to build the herd. There could be income tax implications too, and other financial issues still exist after the sale.

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A soon-to-be-vacant South Central District judgeship will stay in Mandan. The North Dakota Supreme Court made that decision following Judge John Grinsteiner plans to retire Aug. 20. When a district judge leaves, the Supreme Court determines whether to keep the judgeship in the present location, move it elsewhere or abolish it. The decision is based on statewide caseload data and comments from interested parties including attorneys and judges. Justices say the district has experienced a 23% population growth since 2000, and more than 80% of the population lives in Burleigh-Morton counties. Caseload trends project felony filings to increase significantly this year.


In world and national news…

ATLANTA (AP) — Senate Democrats have taken their case for a federal voting bill on the road. At a field hearing in Georgia on Monday, they argued that their sweeping elections measure is desperately needed to counter the impact of new Republican state laws that tighten voting rules. U.S. Sen. Raphael Warnock says, “We have no time to spare.” Democrats used the rare field hearing in Atlanta to gain attention for their voting and elections overhaul, which remains blocked by unified Republican opposition and disagreement among Senate Democrats about whether to change procedural rules in the evenly divided Senate to get it passed.


PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) — Haiti’s elections minister says that interim Prime Minister Claude Joseph will step down in the wake of the July 7 assassination of President Jovenel Moise. Mathias Pierre told The Associated Press Monday that negotiations are still ongoing, but that Ariel Henry will lead the country. Moise had designated Henry to replace Joseph a day before he was killed, The change follows a statement Saturday from a key group of international diplomats that appeared to snub Joseph, calling on Henry to form a government.


WASHINGTON (AP) — The Biden administration says it will evacuate about 2,500 Afghans who worked for the U.S. government and their families to a military base in Virginia pending approval of their visas. The administration notified Congress on Monday that the Afghans will be housed at the Fort Lee Army base south of Richmond starting next week. The announcement comes amid growing concerns for the safety of Afghans who served as translators and in other support roles for American troops and diplomats as the Biden administration is rapidly withdrawing U.S. forces from Afghanistan. The group to be housed at Fort Lee is just a small portion of the number of Afghans seeking refuge in the U.S.



SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Flush with cash from an unexpected budget surplus, California is launching the nation’s largest statewide universal free lunch program. When classrooms open for the fall term, every one of California’s 6.2 million public school students will have the option to eat school meals for free, regardless of their family’s income. It is an undertaking that is winning praise as a pioneering way to reduce the stigma and shame of taking a free meal in the school cafeteria. Some U.S. cities including New York and Boston have similar programs but until recently there were no statewide initiatives. California approved its program last month, and Maine followed soon after with a similar plan.



(AP)  A Florida man who breached the U.S. Senate chamber carrying a Trump campaign flag has received an eight-month prison term, the first resolution for a felony case in the Capitol insurrection. Prosecutors wanted Paul Allard Hodgkins to serve 18 months behind bars, saying he and other Jan. 6 rioters “contributed to the collective threat to democracy.” A lawyer for Hodgkins asked the judge at his Monday sentencing in Washington, D.C., not to impose a prison sentence. Hodgkins was never accused of assaulting anyone or damaging property. Hodgkins pleaded guilty last month to one count of obstructing an official proceeding and apologized Monday, saying he made a ”foolish decision.”



WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden is tempering his assessment that social media giants are “killing people” by hosting misinformation about the COVID-19 vaccines on their platforms. Biden said Monday that he hopes the tech companies don’t take his comments “personally” and instead act to save lives. Companies like Facebook defend their practices and say they’re helping people around the world access verified information about the shots. But the White House says they haven’t done enough to stop misinformation that has helped slow the pace of new vaccinations in the U.S. to a trickle.
