Three men brandishing rifles chased him off, he said. Janke knew the gunmen could be anywhere on the 3,000-acre spread in eastern North Dakota. Fearful of an armed standoff, he called in reinforcements from the state Highway Patrol, a regional SWAT team, a bomb squad, ambulances and deputy sheriffs from three other counties.

The Army Corps of Engineers has approved $750,000 for the emergency dredging of channels blocking access to Marina del Rey harbor, officials announced. The funding complements $500,000 allocated for dredging as part of the 1997 Energy and Water Appropriations Act, the law that funds Corps projects. "The powerful storms of recent weeks have nearly closed both the northern and southern channel access to the Marina del Rey harbor," said Rep. Jane Harman (D-Torrance).
