The successor to a North Dakota district judge who died this month will be able to serve two years in the job before he must run his own election campaign, even though the incumbent’s term ends in December.
Gov. John Hoeven intends to appoint a successor to Southeast District Judge James Bekken, who died of lung disease May 3. Bekken, 61, had been unopposed for re-election this fall as one of seven judges in the 11-county district.

The move toward more collaboration among the big three metro-area school districts is good news for taxpayers and students. Last week superintendents from West Fargo, Moorhead and Fargo said they will ramp up cooperation to reduce dropout rates in the three school districts. A total of about 400 students quit school in the three districts each year. School administrators and school board members reaffirmed they are ready to work together to reduce that number.
North Dakota Department of Transportation will not begin the removal of hay stored past the Nov. 1 deadline until Nov. 15 in four district areas due to wet conditions.
The four districts are the Minot, Valley City, Devils Lake and Fargo districts.
Three attorneys have been picked as finalists for a new North Dakota district judgeship in Minot.
A screening committee voted to recommend Minot lawyers William Bergman and Todd Cresap and Ward County prosecutor Kelly Dillon for the opening. Seven lawyers applied for the judgeship.
The North Dakota Judicial Nominating Committee will be in Jamestown later this month to review applicants for the new Southeast District judgeship position.
The committee will be in Jamestown on Sept. 22-23 and will interview six candidates for the job, said Bill Neumann, North Dakota State Bar Association executive director and treasurer and secretary for the committee.
The Jamestown Public School District is on pace to meet three goals it set last fall, said Bob Toso, superintendent, at Monday’s Jamestown Public School Board meeting.
The three goals were reducing the drop-out rate, creating a safe, healthy and welcoming environment and increasing math and reading achievement, Toso said.
“Obviously you can’t do everything people identify, but we have done quite a bit,” he said.
No. 1-ranked Linton and Kidder County advanced to the District 6 championship game with semifinal victories on Monday night in Napoleon.
The Lions used a 22-8 advantage in the second quarter to take a 42-24 halftime lead en route to an 87-39 victory over South Border.
Dave Nething retains his seat as District 12 senator after the completion of a recount Friday. The final results gave Nething, a Republican who has served in the Senate since 1966, an 8-vote margin over Democratic challenger John Grabinger.
The final results determined 2,974 votes for Nething and 2,966 votes for Grabinger after the recount committee had ruled on 105 ballots challenged by either Johnson or the representatives of the candidates.
About 3,800 absentee and early voting ballots in the District 12 Senate race were inspected Friday by Noel Johnson, election administrator for Stutsman County, Joel Larson, representing Republican Sen. Dave Nething and Jamie Selzer, executive director of the North Dakota Democratic Party representing challenger John Grabinger.
The recount started Friday morning.
The state Canvassing Board will make the results of the Nov. 4 election official today and that’ll set in motion an automatic recount in the Jamestown state Senate race, which will decide the fate of the current longest-serving legislator in the state.
