Bismarck (NDDoH) – Increased demand and limited supply have led to a change in how COVID-19 monoclonal antibody treatments will be distributed across the nation, impacting the availability of treatment for those infected with COVID-19.

On Monday, September 13, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) transitioned from the process in which administration sites could directly order products from the distributor to a state/territory-coordinated distribution system.

Under the HHS State/Territory-Coordinated Distribution System, HHS will determine the weekly distribution amount for states and territories based on case burden (cases and hospitalizations) and monoclonal antibody utilization. Each state or territorial health department will identify which mAb administration sites will receive products and determine how much product they receive.

“While there is a shortage of supply, those who need the treatment are encouraged to ask their health care provider,” said NDDoH Health Resources and Response Section Chief Tim Wiedrich. “The ND Department of Health will be working to distribute North Dakota’s allocation to facilities across the state.”

For the distribution week of September 13, North Dakota was allocated 40 units of BAM/ETE and 340 units of REGN-COV. The demand for treatment in North Dakota is anticipated to exceed the allocation.

“Those who have been hesitant about receiving COVID-19 vaccine may be counting on monoclonal antibodies for treatment if they become sick,” said ND State Health Officer Nizar Wehbi. “Due to increased national demand and very limited supply, Monoclonal antibody treatments may not be as available. Vaccination is still the best protection against severe illness, hospitalization, and death from COVID-19. North Dakotans who have not yet been vaccinated are encouraged to do so.”

Jamestowm  (JRMC)   — Jamestown Regional Medical Center, says,  “Sometimes, we are our own barrier to our best health.”

JRMC Gynecologist Dr. Gregg McAdoo, adds, “We know it’s hard for women to make time for themselves. That’s why No Excuses is so special. It makes it easy.”

No Excuses reduces barriers to care, including insurance coverage, transportation or appointment times during the regular business day. The goal of No Excuses is to increase the number of area women who receive regular Pap smear test screenings and 3D mammograms.

Dr. McAdoo says, “These screenings are an important step in living a healthy life.”

Central Valley Health and Jamestown Regional Medical Center created No Excuses in 2015. Since then, more than 100 women have received 3D mammograms and preventative services they otherwise wouldn’t have. At any given time, more than 1,300 Stutsman County women are not up to date on their screenings.

JRMC Foundation Director Lisa Jackson, points out,  “No Excuses is only possible because of the community’s generosity. 14 years, the hundreds of Running of the Pink participants have raised more than $165,000 for this cause.”

R.M. Stoudt Inc. organizes the walk/run each year.  Stoudt’s Business Development Center, and Internet Manage, Tara Kapp says,  “No Excuses is important to us. We hope this encourages women to make themselves a priority and put their health and well-being at the top of their to-do lists.”

Who should receive Pap smear tests and 3D mammograms is unique to every individual, however, doctors offer some general guidelines.

The 3D mammogram image gives a clearer and more accurate picture of the breast – meaning doctors can detect cancer faster. Most women ages 40 and older should receive one every year.

Most women ages 21 and older should receive a Pap smear test. Most women ages 21 to 65 repeat them every three to five years, Dr. McAdoo said.

JRMC Chief Nursing Officer, Trisha Jungles, says, “Women deserve the best, that’s why we offer state-of-the-art equipment and the most highly trained specialists like Dr. McAdoo.”

No Excuses is for all women – students, moms, grandmothers and professionals.

Central Valley Health District, Unit Adminstrator, Robin Iszler says, “If you’ve never had these screenings, or it’s been a long time, you are definitely the woman we are looking for

This year, No Excuses is set for:

  • Tuesday, Oct. 5 from noon to 6 p.m.
  • Tuesday, Nov. 16 from noon to 6 p.m.

For more information on No Excuses, visit https://jrmcnd.com/no-excuses/. Appointments can be made online or over the phone. To schedule a mammogram for any other day, call JRMC Mammography at (701) 952-4852.



MINNEAPOLIS   (KFGO)  – A former Minneapolis police officer convicted of murder in George Floyd’s death has pleaded not guilty to violating a teenager’s civil rights in a separate case that involved a restraint similar to the one used on Floyd.

Derek Chauvin was convicted this year on state charges of murder and manslaughter in Floyd’s 2020 death.

He’s also charged in federal court with violating Floyd’s civil rights. But another indictment against Chauvin alleges he carried out a similar act against a then-14-year-old boy in 2017. This indictment alleges Chauvin deprived the teenager, who is Black, of his rights when held his knee on the boy’s neck and upper back while the boy was prone, handcuffed and not resisting.


BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A map for new North Dakota legislative districts is slowly taking shape. Among the proposals so far are those that create a new district in the Fargo area and a pair in the oil-producing region in the western part of the state. The Republican-led redistricting committee held its fourth meeting on Thursday. It’s focused on keeping 47 districts, instead of changing size of the Legislature. The addition of the three new districts means three rural districts somewhere will have to be eliminated. The committee expects a draft statewide plan to be completed next week for public review.

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem says more time is needed with federal lawyers to negotiate a settlement for money that the state claims it spent on policing protests against the Dakota Access oil pipeline. North Dakota filed a lawsuit against the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in 2019, seeking to recover more than $38 million in damages from the monthslong pipeline protests almost five years ago. State and federal lawyers met for more than three hours at the federal courthouse in Bismarck Thursday. U.S. Magistrate Judge Alice Senechal presided over the negotiations, and suggested more time would be needed to reach an agreement.

MINOT, N.D. (AP) — A Minot man accused of injuring a baby has pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of child neglect and has been sentenced to time already served in jail. Phillip Boswell was initially accused of breaking the baby’s arm and causing a permanent disability. But after prosecutors admitted in court Wednesday that they can’t prove Boswell was the one who actually hurt her, his felony child abuse charge was amended to child neglect. Boswell acknowledged he failed to take the baby to the hospital for treatment for up to nine days after the child was injured. Boswell was sentenced to 360 days in jail with all but the 56 days he already served suspended.

LANDOVER, Md. (AP) — Dustin Hopkins made the most of a second chance as the Washington Football Team pulled out a 30-29 win over the Giants.

Dustin Hopkins made a 43-yard field goal on an untimed down, the result of a penalty on Giants defensive lineman Dexter Lawrence. Hopkins missed his first attempt from 48 yards out before the penalty gave Washington new life.

Taylor Heinicke threw for 336 yards and two touchdowns. He cost Washington dearly with a late interception, but after Graham Gano’s fifth field goal of the game gave the Giants a 29-27 lead with 2:00 remaining, Heinicke guided Washington back into field goal range.

Daniel Jones threw for 249 yards and a touchdown for the 0-2 Giants and also ran for 95 yards and a TD.

UNDATED (AP) — The San Francisco Giants’ lead in the National League West is down to one game over the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Fernando Tatis (tah-TEES’) Jr. hit his NL-leading 39th home run and the San Diego Padres improved their playoff position with a 7-4 win over the Giants. Tommy Pham and Manny Machado each drove in two runs, and Adam Frazier and Austin Nola had three hits apiece.

Giants starter Kevin Gausman lost for the first time since July 30, allowing four earned runs on eight hits in five innings.

The outcome puts the Padres a half-game behind the Cardinals for the second NL wild card.

In Thursday’s other major league action:

— The Reds avoided a three-game sweep and gave their wild-card hopes a boost with a 1-0 win over the Pirates in Pittsburgh. Tyler Mahle (MA’-lee) improved to 12-5 by holding the Pirates to five hits, all singles, over six innings. Asdrubel (as-DROO’-bul) Cabrera lifted a sacrifice fly in the seventh inning to help the Reds get within one game of St. Louis for the second NL wild card.

— Bryce Harper had a productive night in the Phillies’ 17-8 win over the Cubs. Harper doubled to start a seven-run, game-tying rally in the fourth inning, drove in the go-ahead run in the sixth and sealed the win with a three-run home run in the seventh. Odubel (oh-DOO’-bul) Herrera and Jean Segura drove in three runs apiece as the Phils pulled within three games of the NL East-leading Braves.

— Carlos Correa triggered a seven-run fourth inning with a three-run homer as the Astros clobbered the Rangers, 12-1. Alex Bregman had the first of his pair of two-run singles during Houston’s big fourth. Replacement starter Luis Garcia took a shutout into the sixth to help Houston keep its seven-game lead over Oakland in the AL West.

— The Yankees lost their hold on the two AL wild-card berths by losing to the Orioles, 3-2 on Austin Hays’ RBI single in the bottom of the 10th. New York led 2-1 until Yankees reliever Clay Holmes threw a wild pitch with two out in the ninth, allowing Kelvin Gutierrez to score. Joey Gallo hit his 35th homer of the season, but the Yanks fell a half-game behind Toronto and Boston in the wild-card battle.

— Yandy Díaz hit a leadoff home run and Mike Zunino (zoo-NEE’-noh) later connected for the Rays in a 5-2 downing of the Tigers. Dietrich Enns pitched four solid innings, allowing one run and three hits as Tampa Bay combined on a six-hitter. The AL East leaders top Boston and Toronto by 8 1/2 games.

— Chad Pinder furnished a two-run single while the Athletics scored four in the third inning of a 7-2 win at Kansas City. Josh Harrison was 4-for-5 with two RBIs and two runs scored as the A’s pulled within three games of an AL wild-card berth. Royals catcher Salvador Perez slammed his 45th home run of the year, tying Johnny Bench for the most by anyone playing at least 75 percent of his games behind the plate.

— The Angels continued their recent mastery of the White Sox with a 9-3 win at Chicago. Alex Cobb allowed two hits over five shutout innings, his first start since July 23. Luis Rengifo (rehn-HEE’-foh) and Jose Rojas homered and Jack Mayfield delivered a three-run double as the Angels beat the AL Central leaders for the 15th time in their last 19 meetings.

— The Rockies and Braves were rained out in Atlanta. The bad weather could force the two teams to make up the game after the regular season ends if the contest has any bearing on the NL East race. The two clubs don’t have any matching days off.


Ohtani has sore arm, may not pitch again this season

CHICAGO (AP) — Two-way star Shohei Ohtani (SHOH’-hay oh-TAH’-nee) won’t pitch Friday for the Los Angeles Angels because of a sore right arm that could sideline him as a pitcher for the rest of the season.

Ohtani felt soreness while playing catch Wednesday. Manager Joe Maddon raised the possibility of the likely AL MVP being shut down on the mound for the rest of the season. Maddon said there are currently no plans for Ohtani to be examined by a doctor, nor has it been determined when he would try to resume playing catch.

Ohtani hasn’t pitched since Sept. 10, when he was tagged for six runs on nine hits in 3 1/3 innings in a loss at Houston.


NHL expects 98% of players to be vaccinated before season

UNDATED (AP) — The NHL says it expects 98% of its players to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 by the start of the season. The league says that would mean only 10 to 15 players will not be vaccinated by the time the season begins Oct. 12.

The league and the Players’ Association did not impose a vaccine mandate on players, but coaches and staff must be vaccinated as a condition of employment. Columbus recently replaced assistant coach Sylvain Lefebvre because he declined to be vaccinated.

Teams will be able to suspend unvaccinated players without pay if they cannot participate in hockey activities as part of the protocols, which could include games in Canada.

Fully vaccinated players will have any COVID-19 positives treated as hockey injuries and still be paid. Unvaccinated players also will have their movements restricted when on the road. And there will still be regular coronavirus testing for vaccinated players.

In other NHL news:

— The Buffalo Sabres’ cross-border rivalry with the Toronto Maple Leafs is heading outdoors.

Buffalo becomes the first U.S.-based team to compete in what will be the sixth Heritage Classic, which is part of the NHL’s outdoor series of games. It’s traditionally set in Canada, featuring matchups of Canadian teams. Hamilton is about midway between Toronto and Buffalo.

In world and national news…

(AP)  The White House is warning state and local governments about severe cuts to disaster relief, Medicaid, infrastructure grants. school funding and other programs if Congress fails to raise the U.S. debt limit. A fact sheet for state and local officials that was obtained by The Associated Press is an attempt to ratchet up the public pressure on Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell. President Joe Biden has insisted so far on bipartisan backing to increase the cap on a debt that was almost entirely accrued before he took office. But McConnell has been unmoved and has said Democrats must act on their own.


WASHINGTON (AP) — Opposition from some leading moderate Democrats over a $3.5 trillion budget proposal championed by the party’s most liberal, progressive wing has left the party grappling with deeper ideological questions. Fully embracing an unprecedented expansion of the federal social safety net could jeopardize the bill’s passage and ultimately alienate independent and moderate Democrats ahead of next year’s midterm elections. But scaling back ambitions might disillusion progressives the party will need to turnout in 2022, when Republicans believe they are poised to take back control of Congress.


WASHINGTON (AP) — The World Bank is canceling a prominent report on business conditions around the world after investigators found staff members were pressured by the bank’s leaders to alter data about China and some other governments. The bank said it would discontinue “Doing Business” following an investigation prompted by internal reports of “data irregularities” in its 2018 and 2020 editions and possible “ethical matters.” The investigation found staff members changed data on China to improve its ranking under pressure from the office of then-World Bank President Jim Yong Kim and from then-Chief Executive Kristalina Georgieva and one of her advisers. Georgieva, now director of the International Monetary Fund, said she disagreed with the findings.


(AP)  World shares are mostly higher as investors assess a hodge-podge of economic data. Benchmarks rose in Frankfurt, Paris, Tokyo and Hong Kong but fell in Sydney. U.S. futures edged higher, while the yield on the 10-year Treasury note was steady at 1.33%. Oil prices retreated from their surge earlier in the week. On Thursday, the S&P 500 and the Dow Jones Industrial Average each lost about 0.2%, while the tech-heavy Nasdaq managed to eke out a gain of 0.1% after the government reported a surprise gain in retail sales last month.


LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) — Olympic teams have been urged by the IOC to request more Chinese vaccines ahead of the 2022 Beijing Winter Games. The Games open on Feb. 4 and will be held in the country where the coronavirus outbreak started. The International Olympic Committee first announced a vaccine rollout program with Chinese authorities for athletes and officials in March. Chinese vaccines were bought by the IOC and also made available for delegations heading to the Tokyo Olympics from countries which had approved them for use. About 100 countries are likely to compete at the Beijing Olympics. There were 205 national teams in Tokyo. Vaccination is encouraged but not mandatory.


SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — Chicago-based aerospace giant Boeing Co. will invest $200 million to manufacture the U.S. Navy’s latest unmanned aircraft at MidAmerica St. Louis Airport.
