Minot man faces multiple charges
Tucker Kruze St. Croix, 20, was arrested for aggravated assault, unlawful consumption of alcohol, and discharging a firearm in city limits early Saturday morning at Woodbridge Mobile Home Community, 800 31st Avenue Southeast, according to the Minot Police Department.
The police responded to a report of a man with a shotgun at Woodbridge and heard a shot fired inside a home upon their arrival. St. Croix allegedly assaulted an 18-year-old female prior to the shotgun incident and was taken into custody.
Airline boardings continue to rise
BISMARCK - Statewide airline boardings are up more than 19 percent compared to a year ago, according to the North Dakota Aeronautics Commission.
Minot boardings were up 39 percent during October and are up 53 percent this year compared to the same period in 2011.
Williston had its largest October on record. United and Delta began offering service to Williston in November, providing travelers with four airline choices. With Minot, Grand Forks, and Fargo also adding service to Denver, the aeronautics commission expects boarding numbers will continue to increase.
"North Dakota breaks a record every month," said Joshua Simmers, aviation projects manager. "We're not aware of any other place in the nation experiencing significant growth in aviation certainly not at this capacity."
The most significant demand is in the western portion of the state, but Fargo is seeing a 5 percent increase and Grand Forks an 18 percent increase in 2012. Fargo continues to board the most passengers, with 305,232 boardings through October of this year. Bismarck was second with 194,536 boardings, and Minot third with 186,208 boardings.
