The two suspects in a shooting in Beulah that left a man dead and his brother injured have been assigned public defenders.
Twenty-nine-year-old Richard Whitman and 24-year-old Cody Borner both are due in court March 14 in Mercer County for preliminary hearings on charges of conspiracy to commit murder.
BISMARCK (AP) — A 23-year-old Beulah man died after a head-on crash Tuesday evening near Dakota Gasification Company north of Beulah.
The Bismarck Tribune reports that Tyler Holder was pronounced dead at Sakakawea Medical Center in Hazen.
The western North Dakota city of Beulah was a focus of spring flood preparation efforts on Friday, with Gov. Jack Dalrymple and other state officials traveling there to take part in a meeting and tour.
Mercer County officials will be keeping a close eye on the Knife River this spring while also looking into options for long-term flood protection.
About 80 homes in Beulah and a handful in Hazen suffered flood damage last spring.
Beulah is hosting a 2-day coyote hunt Dec. 4-5 with a first prize of $5000.
The hunt costs $200 and is limited to the first 50 2-man teams. Raffles, prizes and professional seminars will be held after the hunt.
Traffic on state Highway 49 south of Beulah was detoured Monday so the Queen Bee, a 7.5 million-pound dragline, could move carefully across the road from one coal mining area to another.
The dragline owned by Dakota Westmoreland Corp. was moving from the east side of the highway to a mining area on the west side of the road. The bucket on the giant excavating machine is used to remove layers of soil above coal deposits.
