The widow and the orphan are too significant in the kingdom of God just to be pitied. They are not to be pitied. They are to be empowered.

    BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - State agriculture officials in the Northern Plains are starting the process of divvying up tons of hay donated from around the country to help drought-plagued ranchers in the region.
 
     North Dakota's Agriculture Department, North Dakota State University and the Michigan-based nonprofit Ag Community Relief this month launched a program to accept hay donations for ranchers in the Dakotas and Montana.
 
     Midnight Thursday was the deadline for applications. Nearly 1,400 ranchers from the three states applied for dozens of semi-loads of hay donated from around the U.S. It's being distributed through a lottery drawing.
 
     North Dakota Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring says the response has been uplifting.
 
     Goehring also says getting more hay donations to North Dakota might be difficult, with the nation's focus turning to helping hurricane-ravaged ranchers in Texas.

     BUFFALO, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Supreme Court has upheld the state Health Department's decision to issue a permit for a 9,000-hog farm in Buffalo.
 
     Many of the town's 200 residents had worried about potential pollution from the $15 million facility at Rolling Green Family Farms.
 
     But the Health Department granted a permit, saying the farm would meet state standards. The state also added conditions to the permit to address concerns about odor, surface water and groundwater.
 
     Opponents went to court last year and asked a judge to block the project and rescind the permit. But the judge refused and the state Supreme Court upheld that decision in an opinion filed earlier this week.
 
     Minnesota-based Pipestone Holdings will operate the facility.
