We can always find something to be thankful for, and there may be reasons why we ought to be thankful for even those dispensations which appear dark and frowning.

A Minot man accused of firing a gun at his girlfriend as she fled a home with her young son has been sentenced to serve 20 years in prison....

     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - A Minot man accused of firing a gun at his girlfriend as she fled a home with her young son has been sentenced to serve 20 years in prison. The Minot Daily News reports that James Blue II on Friday entered an Alford plea to 17 felony charges, including attempted murder. That means he doesn't admit guilt but acknowledges there's enough evidence to convict him. The court treats it like a guilty plea.

    The charges resulted from a mid-January incident at a mobile home park in which Blue also was accused of firing shots at police officers and assaulting paramedics. No one was seriously hurt.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Fargo police have arrested two people in what they describe as a drug-related drive-by shooting. Authorities say one of the suspects initially tried to rob the victim of drugs at gunpoint Sunday afternoon, but the victim drove away after a struggle over the gun.
 
     Police say the suspects then chased the victim and shot at him. The victim wasn't hit, but he was treated at a hospital and released for injuries he suffered during the scuffle over the gun. Three people were taken into custody after a traffic stop in West Fargo, and two were later arrested.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's Agriculture Department is seeking participants for the third year of the state's industrial hemp research program. The goal of the program is to determine whether hemp can be a successful crop in North Dakota, and which varieties work best in the state's climate.
 
     Producers planted more than 70 acres of hemp in 2016 and more than 3,000 acres this year. Hemp fiber and oil can be used in numerous products, but production has been limited because federal drug law doesn't differentiate between hemp and its cousin marijuana.
 
     Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring says growers' proposals for next year's program are due at 5 p.m. on Dec. 29. Proposals will be ranked by a committee appointed by Goehring, who will make the final choices.
