TOP STORY:

TRUMP

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump is taking the Washington debate over his Supreme Court nominee to the homes of two red-state Senate Democrats this week, elevating Judge Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation as a political litmus test for voters. Trump's strategy aims to turn the screws on the lawmakers, Jon Tester of Montana and Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, who find themselves caught between Senate leaders and progressive donors who are fighting Kavanaugh's confirmation, and their states' more conservative electorate, which is more broadly supportive of Trump's pick. Trump is holding a rally in Billings, Montana, on Thursday night, and then attending fundraisers in Fargo, North Dakota, and Sioux Falls, South Dakota, on Friday. By Zeke Miller and Ken Thomas.

WILDLIFE MIGRATIONS

NEW YORK — Looking for the best place to eat? Ask a local. Now scientists say that same insider knowledge shapes the springtime migrations of moose and bighorn sheep. Animals learn from experienced members of the herd about where to find the best food, building sort of a cultural know-how that's passed through generations and improves over the course of decades, new research indicates. Researchers tracked the movements of 267 bighorn sheep and 189 moose in Wyoming, Idaho and South Dakota that wore GPS devices on collars. By Malcolm Ritter. SENT: 570 words, photos.

WELL PROJECT BUST

BUFFALO, S.D. — A $20,000 certificate of deposit that was supposed to serve as a bond for 40 idled natural gas wells in northwestern South Dakota was cashed out because company officials did not remember what the money was for, according to one of the officials. Texas-based Spyglass Cedar Creek LP is opposing South Dakota's revocation of the company's permits for the wells near Buffalo. A state hearing is scheduled Oct. 18. SENT: 130 words.
