TODAY'S THOUGHT

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.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Law enforcement and prosecutors are meeting with lawmakers to discuss the impacts a new law that incorporate victims' rights provisions into the state constitution. The Legislature's interim Judiciary Committee is hearing the presentation today.
 
     North Dakota voters in November approved the new law. The law is named after California college student Marsalee "Marsy" Nicholas, who was stalked and killed in 1983 by an ex-boyfriend. Her brother, billionaire Henry Nicholas, has been bankrolling a national effort to expand the law into more states. He put roughly $2.8 million into efforts to pass the North Dakota measure.
 
     Supporters say the law bolsters the rights of crime victims, but groups representing crime victims and defense attorneys and prosecutors have said it was a bad idea that will have unintended consequences.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Medical marijuana is on the minds of county leaders as they gather in Bismarck for their annual conference. Association of Counties attorney Aaron Birst says counties and local municipalities are going to have to figure out how they'll structure zoning and other issues as it relates to medical marijuana.
 
     KXMB says the placement of a dispensary can't be near a school, nor can anyone consume or possess medical marijuana around or near school events. Medical marijuana will be in the hands of patients sometime next year as county officials and commissioners learn what it will mean locally.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A fired Fargo police officer is appealing his termination to the city commission. KFGO reports commissioners on Monday approved the notice of appeal filed by Dave Boelke's attorney. Chief Dave Todd fired the 15-year veteran in August, saying he made "intentional and willful decisions" not to respond to calls, not to collect evidence and showed disrespect and discourteous behavior toward other officers and lacked patience with the public. Boelke has denied the allegations.

     BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - The Trump administration says a federal court has no authority to second-guess a presidential permit for the proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline from Canada. Justice Department attorneys are due in U.S. District Court in Montana on Wednesday to argue for the dismissal of two lawsuits that challenged the March permit for the 1,179-mile pipeline.
 
     Conservation groups and Native American organizations contend an environmental review of the project completed three years ago was inadequate. They've asked U.S. District Judge Brian Morris to revoke its permit. But government attorneys say that the courts can't interfere because Trump has Constitutional authority over matters of foreign affairs and national security.
 
     The line proposed by TransCanada would transport Canadian crude through Montana and South Dakota to Nebraska. The Obama administration rejected it, but it was revived under Trump.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A Minot man shot in the stomach during the recent attack by a gunman in Las Vegas has undergone a fourth surgery. Thirty-one-year-old Andrew Gudmunson's father and the real estate company that employs him say he underwent an operation Sunday at a Las Vegas hospital to close the wound in his abdomen.
 
     Gudmunson was shot on Oct. 1 in the attack by a sniper at a high-rise hotel that left 59 others dead and hundreds of others wounded. He's breathing with the help of a ventilator, but doctors hope to soon remove it. Gudmunson is a former University of North Dakota athlete, playing football and baseball.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Commissioners in Fargo have passed a largely-symbolic resolution officially tagging the city as an 'inclusive' community. Responding to rallies in Charlottesville, Virginia and some incidents of hate speech in the Red River Valley, the Fargo Human Relations Commission asked cities to pass a resolution on inclusiveness. Supporters say it's a statement that puts a city on the map as a place that celebrates diversity.
 
     KVRR -TV says Moorhead, Minnesota became the first city in the Valley to pass a similar resolution last month. The cities of Dilworth and West Fargo are also being asked to consider the resolution. Fargo Commissioner Dave Piepkorn was the lone commissioner to vote against the resolution, but he did not explain why.
