TOP STORY:

OIL PIPELINE-SECURITY

BISMARCK, N.D. — North Dakota regulators are seeking up to $2 million in fines from a North Carolina company that handled security for the developer of the heavily protested Dakota Access oil pipeline. The figure is in a new complaint that the state Private Investigative and Security Board has filed against TigerSwan. Company attorney Lynn Boughey calls the fine amount the board is seeking “outrageous.” By Blake Nicholson. SENT: 465 words.

AROUND THE STATE:

EXCHANGE-PROJECT SEARCH

RAPID CITY, S.D. — More confidence, less fear, real-world job skills. Project SEARCH shows young adults with cognitive or physical disabilities how much they can offer local employers. Project SEARCH equips students such as Justin “JB” Bryant and Michael Hauge to successfully transition from high school to the workforce. This fall, Bryant is training at the Regional Health IT Help Desk. Hauge is learning office skills and how to be a healthier worker in Regional Health’s Employee Health and Well-Being department. By Tanya Manus, Rapid City Journal. SENT IN ADVANCE: 696 words.

EXCHANGE-SCHOOL ATTENDANCE

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — About three years ago, officials across the Sioux Falls School District made a concerted effort to start addressing attendance issues at various schools. On average, 8 in 10 students in the city attend school most of the time. But the number of chronically absent kids is above the state average, and at least 1 in 10 kids regularly miss class. Changing that trend is a slow process, but the needle is moving in the right direction. The secret is a focus on one-on-one relationships with students, regular incentives and constant communication with parents by meeting them where they’re at. By Shelly Conlon, Argus Leader. SENT IN ADVANCE: 1,230 words.
