TODAY'S THOUGHT

God wants to see prayers that are filled with genuine praise and thanksgiving for what He has done in the past. He wants our hearts to be filled with awe and gratitude for His blessings. He wants us to set up memorials in our hearts testifying to the provisions He has given us.

     ARNEGARD, N.D. (AP) - Authorities say one person was killed and three others were injured in a collision near Arnegard, in northwestern North Dakota. The accident happened about 1:20 p.m. Friday on U.S. Highway 85. The Highway Patrol says a man driving a GMC Envoy lost control and entered the westbound lanes, where it was struck by a man driving a Toyota Highlander.
 
     A passenger in the Envoy died at the scene. Her name has not been released. The driver of the Envoy and two people in the Highlander were hospitalized. The extent of their injuries is not known. The patrol says there was ice and compacted snow on the roadway and it was snowing at the time of the accident.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A Jamestown man has been sentenced to 22 years in prison on child pornography charges. Federal authorities say the investigation of 56-year-old Alexander McManus began after the defendant's wife reported finding a cell phone that contained child pornography hidden behind the refrigerator. McManus pleaded guilty to one count of receiving materials containing child pornography and two counts of possession of materials containing child pornography.

     MANDAN, N.D. (AP) - Trial likely will be delayed for an American Indian activist accused of inciting a riot during protests in North Dakota against the Dakota Access pipeline. Attorneys for Chase Iron Eyes said Friday they want to gather more evidence for their effort to present a "necessity" defense - arguing a crime was justified because it prevented a greater harm.

    Part of Iron Eyes' argument is he was trying to prevent a "civil rights conspiracy" to portray pipeline opponents as terrorists. His defense team wants more information on the peacekeeping efforts of law enforcement and pipeline private security.

    Iron Eye's Feb. 8 trial is likely to be delayed until next summer and likely lengthened to several days. Judge David Nelson called Iron Eyes "one of the premier cases" of the pipeline protest.

     MANDAN, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem says the city of Mandan violated open records laws by failing to respond to a request in a timely manner. The city on June 24 received a request for records relating to the employment of a certain named individual and did not respond until July 18. City officials say the delay was due to numerous inquiries from the requester, as well as dealing with its budget and other deadlines.
 
     Stenehjem says the city failed to respond to the request within a reasonable time. He says while there are no further measures to be taken by the city, it should review its obligations under open records laws

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Highway Patrol says two California men were arrested when a trooper found 70 pounds of marijuana after a traffic stop.

The two men are facing charges of felony possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute and misdemeanor drug paraphernalia.

     PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - Thirty-six attorneys general have signed onto a legal brief in support of South Dakota's bid to collect sales taxes from out-of-state internet retailers.

    South Dakota is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to review whether retailers can be required to collect sales taxes in states where they lack a physical presence. The case could have national implications for e-commerce.

    State Attorney General Marty Jackley said Thursday that Colorado filed a friend-of-the-court brief supporting South Dakota's petition to the high court. The state is seeking to overturn legal rulings issued mostly before the online shopping boom. The brief from 35 states - including neighboring Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota and Wyoming - and the District of Columbia says the jurisdictions all rely on consumption taxes to fund essential government operations.

     MANDAN, N.D. (AP) - Students in Mandan have raised $1,400 to help their peers and others affected by Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico. The Bismarck Tribune reports that students in foreign language clubs at Mandan High School held a bake sale and charged $1 for the cause. They presented a check to the disaster program manager for the Red Cross of Western North Dakota, Rob Stotz, on Wednesday. Stotz says the money will go directly toward aid in Puerto Rico.
 
     The hurricane ravaged homes and left 3.4 million people on the island without electricity. About 30 percent of electricity has been restored, and efforts are ongoing.
