Last month a federal judge ordered that the Dakota Access pipeline should be shut down and drained by Aug. 5.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers quickly appealed, and the D.C. Court of Appeals stayed the order.

Now the appeals court has affirmed that the pipeline does not have to be shut down immediately, but it lets stand the lower court's finding that the Corps violated federal law when it failed to complete an environmental impact study.

An inmate who committed murder at the age of 17 has been denied a shorter prison sentence.

Carlos Quevedo stabbed a Rapid City convenience store clerk to death during a robbery in January 2017.

He appealed his 90-year sentence to the South Dakota Supreme Court.

In an opinion made public on Thursday, July 23, the high court upheld the sentence that allows Quevedo a chance at parole when he's 62.

U.S. Beekeepers Challenged by Honey Fraud

Jul 17, 2020
Adee Honey

When you think of fraud, honey may not come to mind - that is unless you’re a U.S. beekeeper.

U.S. demand for honey far exceeds the 156 million pounds U.S. beekeepers and their bees can produce. According to data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, each year about 596 million pounds of honey are consumed by U.S. households and food processing facilities. 

But profits aren’t what some might think. The livelihood of U.S. beekeepers is challenged by a substance disguised as pure honey, imported and sold to U.S. food processors.
