BISMARCK — Conservation groups, labor unions and the National Park Service on Monday slammed a proposed rule that they worry would limit public input on oil and gas matters by defining an "interested party" as a landowner or property manager. "I just can't fathom why you would want to be known as the North Dakota government body that makes its citizens unwelcome," Laura Anhalt of Bismarck, a Badlands Conservation Alliance board member, testified during a public hearing held by the North Dakota Department of Mineral Resources.

BISMARCK — The North Dakota Democratic-NPL Party and its newly endorsed candidate for U.S. House are denying allegations he had an extramarital affair. Chase Iron Eyes, a Fort Yates attorney and American Indian activist who received the party's endorsement Saturday, said he also doesn't know how a picture he took of himself naked ended up posted online with the allegations. "This is a smear campaign," he said in a phone interview Tuesday.
BISMARCK — Gov. Jack Dalrymple on Tuesday rejected a request from Democrats to call lawmakers back to Bismarck to undo $50 million in recent budget cuts, saying it's unnecessary and the budget plan for the coming year is "just fine." Democrats sent a letter to Dalrymple last week asking him to call a special session so lawmakers could take a more strategic approach to budget cuts made in February and prompted by a projected $1.07 billion revenue shortfall brought on by low crude oil and farm commodity prices.

BISMARCK — North Dakota Democrats endorsed the state's first Native American candidate for federal office and recruited a retiring state lawmaker to run for U.S. Senate, but also left slots unfilled for several statewide offices on the final day of their state convention in Bismarck. Fort Yates attorney and American Indian activist Chase Iron Eyes delivered a rousing speech as he accepted the Democratic-NPL Party's nod for U.S. House.
BISMARCK -- Chase Iron Eyes says he doesn't remember stealing the car when he left the bowling alley in Bismarck on that fateful day almost 14 years ago. He doesn't remember how he ended up alone at the house with the kicked-in door, or why he walked out of it carrying two cases of antique shotguns when the police showed up. "I couldn't really piece together the whole thing. I was blank-out drunk," he said.
