Today's Thought

The best we can hope for in this life is a knothole peek at the shining realities ahead. Yet a glimpse is enough. It's enough to convince our hearts that whatever sufferings and sorrows currently assail us aren't worthy of comparison to that which waits over the horizon.

    BISMARCK, N.D. - North Dakota Department of Health says today that the state has one confirmed case of severe vaping-related lung illness and six probable cases that are under investigation. All reported cases have a history of e-cigarette product use or vaping.

    "As the department receives reports, we will continue to gather and analyze the data to help identify the potential cause or causes of these illnesses," said Kodi Pinks, North Dakota Health Department epidemiologist. "We are working closely with the CDC as this illness continues to be investigated. We will continue to provide updates to the public as more information becomes available. "

    According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 36 states and 1 U.S. territory have reported more than 380 potential cases of severe respiratory illness associated with the use of e-cigarette or vaping products among teenagers and adults. Seven deaths have been reported from six states. No consistent e-cigarette or vaping product, substance, or additive has been identified in all cases, nor has any one product or substance been conclusively linked to severe respiratory illness in patients.

    The Health Department is asking health care providers to continue to watch for cases of severe respiratory illness and ask about recent vaping and e-cigarette use. Individuals experiencing symptoms and have a history of e-cigarette use or vaping should call the reporting hotline at 866-207-2880 or visit ndhealth.gov to take the confidential survey.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - An attorney for a South Dakota man says DNA evidence found on a cigarette butt doesn't prove his client participated in a riot during the Dakota Access pipeline protest three years ago.
 
     The Bismarck Tribune reports attorney Bruce Nestor on Monday filed a motion in state court seeking dismissal of the charges against Lawrence Malcolm Jr., of Sisseton. Nestor says it's impossible to determine where the butt originated or how long it might have been there.
 
     Prosecutors charged Malcolm earlier this month with felony conspiracy to commit criminal mischief and engaging in a riot. The charges relate to protest on the Standing Rock Indian Reservation. An affidavit says more than 100 demonstrators, many with their faces covered, halted construction and vandalized equipment.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Department of Health says more people in the state are using child car seats correctly. Data compiled by health officials show 72 percent of those with car seats were using them improperly in 2018. That figure is actually an improvement and compares with 86 percent in 2009. During the last five years in North Dakota, 8 children have died and 1,037 youngsters 12 and younger were injured in motor vehicle crashes.
 
     The Health Department recommends keeping children in rear-facing car seats for as long as possible. Once a child outgrows the rear-facing seats, a forward-facing car seat with a harness should be used. And, after outgrowing the forward-facing seat, children should be placed in a booster seat until they are the right size to use just a seat belt.
