TODAY'S THOUGHT

The more honest you are about your fears and failures, the bigger your effect on people will be. It is, without question, our failures and not our successes, where God's grace shines the brightest through us into the lives of others.

The Farm Rescue farm aid nonprofit in the Plains has reached another milestone...

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The Farm Rescue farm aid nonprofit in the Plains has reached another milestone. The organization this week is delivering donated hay to south central North Dakota rancher Doug Bichler. He lost his right arm in a hay baling machine accident this past summer, while also dealing with devastating drought. It's the 500th case for Farm Rescue since it was started in 2005.
 
     Farm Rescue provides free physical labor for farmers and ranchers in need in the Dakotas, Minnesota, Iowa, Montana and Nebraska. Founder Bill Gross says he considers it an honor to have been able to help 500 farm families who have experienced crises. Bichler is still recovering from his ordeal and says the assistance from Farm Rescue will help him keep his herd of cattle through the winter.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Drought continues to ease in the Dakotas, though nearly two-thirds of each state remains mired in some form of drought. The latest U.S. Drought Monitor shows 58 percent of South Dakota and 60 percent of North Dakota in some stage of drought.
 
     Both percentages are down only slightly from the previous week. However, the Drought Monitor says recent rains led to improvements across North Dakota and in eastern South Dakota over the week. There are no longer any areas in North Dakota in exceptional drought, the worst category, and only 2 percent of the state in extreme drought. About 6 percent of South Dakota is in the extreme category. About 18 percent of North Dakota and 26 percent of South Dakota is listed in severe drought.
