Governor, Army Corps block deadline extension for Dakota pipeline protesters
Yahoo News - 2 days
(In 2nd paragraph of Feb. 16 item, corrects to show that protesters met with officials from Governor Burgum's office, not the governor himself) By Terray Sylvester (Reuters) - Federal officials and North Dakota's governor on Thursday refused to extend next week's evacuation deadline for activists living in camps that have been a base for months for demonstrations against the multibillion-dollar Dakota Access oil pipeline. Opponents of the 1,170-mile (1.882-km) line met with officials from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, officials representing Republican Governor Doug Burgum and the state Department of Transportation on Thursday morning, asking to be given more time to remove their belongings and waste from the camps. In a statement on Thursday evening, Burgum and the Army Corps refused to extend next Wednesday's deadline.

North Dakota tribe formally calls on pipeline protesters to disperse
Yahoo News - 29 days
By Terray Sylvester CANNON BALL, N.D. (Reuters) - A Sioux tribal council on Saturday formally asked hundreds of protesters to clear out of three camps near its North Dakota reservation used to stage months of sometimes violent protests against the proposed Dakota Access Pipeline. The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe on Friday unanimously passed a resolution calling for the camps to be dismantled, it said on its Facebook page on Saturday. The tribe has been encouraging protesters to go home since the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers agreed to an environmental review of the $3.8 billion project in December.

At Dakota pipeline protest, activists celebrate, mindful fight isn't over
Yahoo News - 3 months
By Ernest Scheyder and Terray Sylvester CANNON BALL, N.D. (Reuters) - Thousands of protesters in North Dakota celebrated after the federal government ruled against a controversial pipeline project on Sunday, even though many recognized that the fight is likely to continue into next year. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said it rejected an application to allow the Dakota Access Pipeline to tunnel under Lake Oahe, a reservoir formed by a dam on the Missouri River. The decision came after months of protests from Native Americans and climate activists, who argued that the 1,172-mile (1,885-km) Dakota Access Pipeline would damage sacred lands and could contaminate the tribe's water source.

U.S. military veterans backing North Dakota pipeline protests
Yahoo News - 3 months
By Ernest Scheyder and Terray Sylvester CANNON BALL, N.D. (Reuters) - U.S. military veterans plan to build a barracks on Friday at a protest camp in North Dakota to support thousands of activists who have squared off against authorities in frigid conditions to oppose a multibillion-dollar pipeline project near the Standing Rock Native American reservation. Veterans volunteering to be human shields have been arriving at the Oceti Sakowin camp near the small town of Cannon Ball, where they will work with protesters who have spent months demonstrating against plans to route the Dakota Access Pipeline beneath a lake near the Sioux reservation, organizers said. The Native Americans and protesters say the $3.8 billion pipeline threatens water resources and sacred sites.

5.1-magnitude earthquake rattles Anguilla's capital, but no injuries or damage reported
Fox News - over 4 years
An earthquake has shaken the tiny Caribbean island of Anguilla. There are no reports of injuries or damage. The U.S. Geological Survey reports the quake's preliminary magnitude as 5.1 and says the epicenter was about 6 miles (10 kilometers) east-southeast of Anguilla's capital, The Valley. But it says the quake occurred far below the surface, about 55 miles (88 kilometers) down — a depth that tends to lessen the power of a tremor's shaking. Police constable Terry Sylvester tells The Associated Press that it was the strongest earthquake he has ever felt but says residents have not reported any damage.
