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.

Federal officials have dismissed two complaints against the University of North Dakota over intercollegiate sports programs....

     GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - Federal officials have dismissed two complaints against the University of North Dakota over intercollegiate sports programs. The university said Wednesday that the U.S. Department of Education's Office for Civil Rights found no evidence of discrimination.
 
     The complaints were filed last spring after UND announced it was dropping women's hockey and men's and women's swimming. In one complaint, the federal office determined that the university's elimination of its women's hockey program after the 2017 season was due to the state's budget problems and was not discriminatory. The office also dismissed a Title IX complaint, determining that students on the women's hockey team were not treated differently because of gender.
 
     Athletics director Brian Faison says UND strives "to be as fair and equitable as possible" in its sports programs.
