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. (AP) - The federal government says it should not have to reimburse North Dakota for the $38 million the state spent policing protests against the Dakota Access oil pipeline. The Army Corps of Engineers filed a motion Tuesday asking a federal judge to dismiss the state's lawsuit seeking to recoup the costs. The Corps says the state had the authority and responsibility to enforce the law on federal land.
 
     Thousands of opponents of the $3.8 billion pipeline that's been moving North Dakota oil to Illinois for two years gathered in southern North Dakota in 2016 and early 2017, camping on federal land and often clashing with police. The state argues the Corps allowed protesters to illegally camp without a permit on federal land and failed to maintain law and order.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Department of Health says the state has one confirmed case of severe vaping-related lung illness and six probable cases under investigation. Health officials say the state is working with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as the agency continues to investigate the vaping illness cases.
 
     The CDC says 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. The agency hasn't identified any consistent e-cigarette or vaping product, substance, or additive in all the cases.

     CENTER, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Highway Patrol says a motorcyclist has died after colliding with an animal in Oliver County.

     RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - A federal judge says a South Dakota sheriff should be removed from a lawsuit challenging new state laws that aim to prevent disruptive demonstrations against the Keystone XL pipeline.
 
     The suit spearheaded by the American Civil Liberties Union contends Pennington County Sheriff Kevin Thom would be enforcing laws that amount to an unconstitutional infringement on free speech. U.S. District Judge Lawrence Piersol said in an order filed Wednesday that Thom is not making any choices on state policy.
 
     The legislation allows officials to pursue criminal or civil penalties against demonstrators who engage in "riot boosting," defined in part as encouraging violence during a riot. It's meant to head off Keystone XL protests like those mounted against the Dakota Access pipeline in North Dakota. Other defendants in the lawsuit are South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem and Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg.
