TODAY'S THOUGHT

Wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying asleep.
Wrapped in a servant's towel, washing feet.

Wrapped in linen burial cloth, dead in sin.
Wrapped in risen glory, coming again.

Cleanup of more than 20,000 barrels of oil is complete nearly five years after a pipeline leak in a farmer's field...

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Cleanup of more than 20,000 barrels of oil is complete nearly five years after a pipeline leak in a farmer's field. A Tioga farmer discovered the spill by Tesoro, now known as Andeavor, in September 2013. It has been called one of the largest onshore spills in U.S. history. The San Antonio-based company and the state of North Dakota announced completion of the cleanup on Wednesday. The company has blamed a lightning strike for the pipeline break.

    A state regulator says about 1.4 million tons of dirt was excavated from the site and treated. Crews had been working round-the-clock to clean up the site after the spill was discovered. The company has estimated the cost of the cleanup at $93 million. The state fined the company $454,000 for the spill.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - U.S. House candidates Republican Kelly Armstrong and Democrat Mac Schneider of North Dakota say neither of them would vote in favor of a recreational marijuana measure on the November ballot.
 
     The two candidates appeared along with independent Charles Tuttle during a debate Wednesday on KFGO radio. Armstrong, of Dickinson, and Schneider, of Grand Forks, say the key question about marijuana is how Congress addresses the issue.
 
     Armstrong says he views the state measure as bad legislation, but would like to see clarification at the federal level, where pot is considered on the same level as drugs like heroin and methamphetamine. Schneider says the feds should leave marijuana legislation to the states. Tuttle, of Minot, says he's running because he's "sick and tired" that things aren't getting done in Congress.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A prosecutor says a man accused in the death of a Fargo woman whose baby was cut from her womb helped finish the crime. William Hoehn is charged with helping to kill Savanna Greywind, who was killed in August 2017. Hoehn's girlfriend, Brooke Crews, pleaded guilty in the case and is serving life in prison without parole. Prosecutor Ryan Younggren said in his opening statement Wednesday that Crews couldn't have subdued Greywind without help.

     GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - The University of North Dakota will use a $3 million donation to help transform the original president's home on campus into a center for graduate and international students. The Grand Forks school says the gift is from Hal and Kathy Gershman. Hal Gershman is an alumnus, successful businessman and former City Council president. Kathy Gershman is a former UND professor and department chairwoman.
 
     The Oxford House was built in 1903 and was home to UND's fourth president, Webster Merrifield. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973. The Gershmans' gift qualifies for a state matching grant, so $4.5 million is available for the renovation project that will begin this fall.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Students around North Dakota will be getting a taste of food from their own state. Today is Pride of Dakota School Lunch Day for more than 44,000 students in 185 schools. They'll dine on food grown by North Dakota farmers and ranchers and processed by local businesses. The Agriculture Department says the goal is to teach students how food is raised and produced, and about the importance of agriculture to North Dakota. More than 500 companies are members of the Agriculture Department's Pride of Dakota branding program.

     ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A U.S. Justice Department official says the agency is doubling the funding for tribal public safety and crime victims as it seeks to tackle the high-rates of violence against Native American women.

    Acting Associate Attorney General Jesse Panuccio tells The Associated Press that the department recognizes "the serious nature of the problem." The announcement comes amid increased focus on the deaths and disappearances of Native American women and girls.

    Panuccio says the department will award $113 million to 133 tribes and Alaska Native villages for public safety programs. Another $133 million will be awarded to tribes this fall specifically to serve crime victims. The announcement follows years of federal efforts to fix a system that many say leaves Native American women especially vulnerable to violent crime.
