WASHINGTON — In a setback for the Trump administration, a federal judge has blocked a permit for construction of the Keystone XL oil pipeline from Canada and ordered officials to conduct a new environmental review. Environmentalists and tribal groups cheered the ruling by a U.S. district judge in Montana, while President Donald Trump called it “a political decision” and “a disgrace.” The 1,184-mile (1,900 kilometer) pipeline would begin in Alberta and shuttle as much as 830,000 barrels a day of crude through a half dozen states to terminals on the Gulf Coast.

NEW YORK — A ring of savvy car thieves in New York exploited a bureaucratic weakness by registering many of their ripped-off Lamborghinis and Range Rovers in South Dakota, a state that lets people register vehicles by mail and wasn’t thoroughly checking to see if they were stolen, the FBI said. Federal prosecutors in New York brought federal conspiracy charges against seven people this week, blaming them for the thefts of 60 vehicles. By Jim Mustian. SENT: 400 words.



PINE RIDGE, S.D. — The Oglala Sioux Tribe is assigning 911 system street addresses to homes and installing hundreds of street signs across the Pine Ridge Reservation in southern South Dakota. Tory Ferguson with the tribe’s Public Safety Department says the goal is to boost police response times. But he says officials also have an eye on what’s happening in North Dakota, where reservation street addresses became a big issue for Native American voters this election. SENT: 270 words.

VERMILLION, S.D. — The University of South Dakota’s first medical residency program started in 1958 with four open spots. Without those four spots, Sioux Falls — and the state as a whole — likely wouldn’t have the strong medical workforce it boasts today. Currently, the USD Sanford School of Medicine is one of the top 10 schools in the nation for its local retention rates, and it all started with pathology. By Shelly Conlon, Argus Leader.

MELLETTE, S.D. — Cody Carey has been through quite a bit his seven months of life. He was born April 4 to Samantha Hommel and Kyle Carey. Cody’s baptism was May 27, and the family celebrated at the home. But shortly after the happy occasion, a fire broke out. As they were busy getting their feet back under them after the fire, something gnawed at Hommel about Cody’s development. He was about three months old. He wasn’t hitting certain milestones at the same time his sister had and he wasn’t very active. By Kelda J.L. Pharris, Aberdeen American News. SENT IN ADVANCE: 562 words.
