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.

     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - Authorities have dropped a theft charge against one of three Minot nurses accused of stealing drugs prescribed for patients in a hospice program. The Minot Daily News reports that the charge against 40-year-old Jennifer Napora was dropped October 3rd. The reason isn't clear.
 
     Charges of theft, conspiracy and endangering a vulnerable adult are still pending against 39-year-old April Beckler and 45-year-old Kim Kochel. They haven't yet entered pleas and are due in court December 14th. The drug thefts are alleged to have taken place between December 2012 and October 2014 while the nurses worked for Trinity Hospital's Home Health and Hospice program.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota officials say the Dakota Access oil pipeline has boosted the state's tax revenues by $18 million in its first three months of operation. State Pipeline Authority director Justin Kringstad tells the Bismarck Tribune that producers have seen a $2 increase per barrel in the average price for Bakken crude in June, July and August, compared to figures from 2016. Kringstad attributes the increase to more competitive transportation costs since the pipeline went into service in June. Kringstad's figures are based on current North Dakota oil production, which increased 3.5 percent in August to an average of 1.08 million barrels per day.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota regulators have scheduled public meetings on a request by Montana Dakota Utilities to raise its natural gas rates. The proposed increase is for $5.9 million annually over current rates, or a 5.4 percent overall increase. The average residential customer would see a monthly bill increase of just under $3. MDU says it needs additional money to operate and maintain its natural gas pipeline system.

    The North Dakota Public Service Commission will hold public input sessions on Oct. 24 and 25 via interactive television. The sessions also will be webcast with questions submitted through email. A formal public hearing is scheduled next Feb. 28.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - The founder of a former horse racing betting company in North Dakota whose conviction for illegal gambling was overturned is asking a judge to clear her name.

    Susan Bala, of Fargo, spent 17 months in prison before an appeals court overturned a 2005 conviction against her and her company. Later a federal judge declined to grant Bala a certificate of innocence she sought to help her recover damages. Bala's attorney, Bob Hoy, says in court documents that Bala might have been premature in applying for the certificate in 2008, but Hoy says details from an ongoing bankruptcy court battle and other legal rulings support her new application.

    North Dakota lawmakers in April approved paying back Bala $15.8 million in taxes. Federal prosecutors did not immediately reply to requests for comment.
