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.

FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Most of drought-stricken North Dakota has gotten a shot of much-needed rain.

FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Most of drought-stricken North Dakota has gotten a shot of much-needed rain.
    The U.S. Department of Agriculture says last week's rainfall benefited development of late-season row crops. But more rain is needed during the rest of the season to ensure good crop development.
    Cooler weather also moved in. Temperatures across North Dakota averaged 1 to 6 degrees below normal.
    Corn condition was rated 25 percent poor or very poor. Soybean conditions also were nearly 25 percent poor or very poor.
    More than three-quarters of the state's pasture and range conditions are rated poor or very poor.

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Farmers and ranchers coping with extreme drought in western North Dakota are questioning whether a state program that's supposed to increase rainfall could be making their problems worse.
    The Bismarck Tribune reports that Hettinger County residents are circulating a petition that seeks to end the North Dakota Cloud Modification Project. Under the program, pilots seed clouds with silver iodide and dry ice to increase precipitation.
    Darin Langerud is director of the North Dakota Atmospheric Resource Boar, which manages the program. He says that studies show cloud seeding has suppressed hail by 45 percent and increased rainfall by 5 to 10 percent.
    Gov. Doug Burgum has directed State Engineer Garland Erbele to compile research on weather modification and present his findings at the State Water Commission meeting scheduled for Aug. 23.

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's early Canada goose hunting season is set, with bag limits and licensing requirements the same as last year.
 
     The state Game and Fish Department says one change is that the west boundary of the Missouri River Canada Goose Zone north of state Highway 200 is extended to state Highway 8.
 
     The season opens Tuesday, Aug. 15, and continues through Sept. 15, except in the Missouri River Zone where the season ends Sept. 7.
 
     Limits and shooting hours for the early season are different from the regular season. The early Canada goose season has a limit of 15 birds daily and 45 in possession. Shooting hours are half an hour before sunrise to sunset.
