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) - Police say a Bismarck man has been charged with assaulting an officer who shot the suspect. Authorities say 51-year-old Donald Miller was shot in the stomach by the officer, who was responding to an unrelated call.
 
     Police say Miller was trying to steal the officer's car on Sunday. The officer, whose name was not released, used a stun gun on Miller before shooting him during a struggle. KFGO reports the officer was punched and his eyes were gouged. Miller is in a hospital being treated for his gunshot wound. The officer was treated at the hospital for head and eye injuries.

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The State Department has granted Enbridge Energy a presidential permit for the final piece of its project to boost the capacity of its Alberta Clipper oil pipeline.

    Calgary, Alberta-based Enbridge has been operating the pipeline, formally called Line 67, since 2010. The company upgraded its pumping stations in 2014 and 2015 to nearly double its capacity to 800,000 barrels per day. But Enbridge needed the permit for the 3-mile segment that crosses the U.S.-Canadian border near Neche, North Dakota. After nearly five years of review, the State Department said Monday that issuing the permit serves the national interest.

    Enbridge has been running Line 67 at full capacity by using a short detour into a parallel pipeline for crossing the border. Line 67 carries Alberta crude across Minnesota to Superior, Wisconsin.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Preliminary numbers from the state show that fewer emergency teacher certifications have been issued in areas of teacher shortages this year in North Dakota compared to last year.

    The North Dakota Education Standards and Practices Board released data showing that there were 25 alternate licenses distributed for the 2017-2018 school year. Those licenses were issued through an emergency measure that allows people without a teacher license to teach for a year. The Bismarck Tribune reports that, that compares to the 83 such licenses issued during the 2016-2017 school year.

    The newspaper reports it's unclear why the numbers dropped, but it could stem from North Dakota's new law that increased teacher flexibility and federal legislation that loosens regulations on teacher licensing.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - An emergency men's shelter in Bismarck that's facing financial problems might remain open this winter if an entity can be found to operate it.

    Officials announced in August that the Ruth Meiers Hospitality House would be closed and sold. The Bismarck Tribune reports that the Heartview Foundation is buying the facility and is willing to allow its use as a shelter this winter. However, Heartview Executive Director says the foundation that provides chemical dependency treatment doesn't have funding or staff to operate a homeless shelter.

    The Missouri Valley Coalition for Homeless People says groups that have been working to address the emergency shelter crisis will meet again this week to discuss the matter. The shelter houses 30-70 men each night and is the only facility of its kind in Bismarck-Mandan.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Gackle rancher Warren Zenker will lead North Dakota's largest rancher organization for another year.

He and his family farm, ranch and run a feedlot.
 
     McVille rancher Dan Rorvig was re-elected vice president. The Stockmen's Association represents more than 3,000 cattle-ranching families. Officers serve up to two one-year terms.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's Agriculture Department is expecting hundreds of applications over the next three weeks from drought-stricken ranchers seeking money to help pay the cost of hauling in hay to maintain their herds through winter.

    The state Emergency Commission in late August approved $1.5 million in aid to help with hay-hauling costs, in response to the worst drought in decades. The state has received about 60 applications so far, and Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring is expecting as many as 700 by the Nov. 3 deadline.

    With hay in short supply, the department also is expanding the program to include straw used for feed. Straw is typically used for animal bedding, but North Dakota Stockmen's Association Executive Vice President Julie Ellingson says it's commonly used as a livestock feed ingredient during droughts.
