On the Spirit Lake Reservation Russ McDonald says he will move back into the chairman's office this week.

McDonald was twice installed as chairman to replace Roger Yankton. In a supervisory writ issued Friday an appeals court overturned a Tribal Court order reinstating Yankton as tribal chairman. McDonald has been serving in recent weeks as the Fort Totten District representative on the Tribal Council. He says he'll be moving back into the office tomorrow.
