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.

     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - A Minot man has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for sexually abusing a 13-year-old boy who has a developmental disability and autism. Judge Stacy Louser sentenced 54-year-old Darrell Midkiff on Tuesday. KXMB-TV reports the judge said she strongly opposed any possibility of early release for Midkiff.
 
     Prosecutors say the boy was playing with Midkiff's grandson at Midkiff's trailer in Minot last February when he was assaulted. Court documents say Midkiff's son called police to report the crime. Midkiff pleaded guilty in June for sexual assaulting the boy. He will be on probation for 10 years after serving his prison sentence.

     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - A 65-year-old Ohio man who fled to Thailand after he was accused of sexually abusing an 8-year-old boy in Minot has been sentenced to 12 years in prison. The Minot Daily News reports that Judge Stacy Louser rejected a joint sentencing recommendation that would have called for Mark Rogers to serve three years in prison. Louser said she couldn't accept that recommendation "in the interests of justice."

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - An American Indian activist and former U.S. congressional candidate in North Dakota accused of inciting a riot during protests against the Dakota Access pipeline says he'll seek to present a "necessity defense." That's justifying a crime by arguing it prevented a greater harm.

    Chase Iron Eyes has pleaded not guilty to inciting a riot and criminal trespass. He could face more than five years in prison if convicted at trial in February.

    Pipeline protesters who try the necessity defense typically argue they're combatting climate change. Iron Eyes, a member of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe, says he hopes to show that civil disobedience was his only option to resist a threat to drinking water from the pipeline. A judge will hear arguments Nov. 3.

Authorities say the victim had 10 visible wounds from the shooting.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - An $11.4 million construction project on Interstate 94 between Bismarck and Mandan is wrapping up. All four lanes of the interstate are expected to open sometime this week. The five-mile stretch of I-94 has been narrowed to two lanes since last spring, with reduced traffic speeds. The construction project included concrete and asphalt repairs and bridge work. Ninety percent of the project was federally funded, with the rest covered by the state.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Drought-stricken North Dakota ranchers are being given more time to apply for state aid to help them pay the cost of hauling in hay to maintain their herds through the winter. The state Agriculture Department is extending the application deadline for the hay-hauling aid program from Nov. 3 to Nov. 13.

    Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring says the program also will now reimburse eligible ranchers for hay transportation expenses incurred between June 1 and Nov. 6.

    The state Emergency Commission in late August approved $1.5 million for the program, in response to the worst drought in decades over the summer. Alfalfa hay production in North Dakota is down 30 percent from last year, and production of all other hay is down 43 percent.
