FORT YATES, N.D.—An eye-catching Camaro forfeited from a drug trafficking case accounted for more than half the proceeds generated from a Standing Rock Tribal Court auction on Friday. The dark blue 2012 Chevrolet Camaro with 44,000 miles fetched $13,500 at the auction in Fort Yates, according to Standing Rock Sioux Tribe Chief Prosecutor John Wilson. "I was hoping for that high a price — of course, I was hoping for $15,000 or better — but $13,500 is just fine by us," he said.
BISMARCK—Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D., on Monday, Aug. 13, joined in condemnation of a federal lawsuit, to which the state of North Dakota is a party, that seeks to overturn the Affordable Care Act as unconstitutional. "I don't think anyone should have started this lawsuit," she said. "I think that the solution to what you disagree with on the ACA is to legislate it."
BISMARCK—Four years of supervised probation are over for Craig Cobb, the known white supremacist who in 2013 sought to turn the tiny town of Leith in south-central North Dakota into a community for like-minded individuals. Michelle Linster, spokeswoman for the state Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, said Cobb's probation ended April 28. "His GPS and everything came off on the date. Whatever conditions he had at that time, they expired with that probation," she said. "He's no longer on our caseload."
