TODAY'S THOUGHT

God wants to see prayers that are filled with genuine praise and thanksgiving for what He has done in the past. He wants our hearts to be filled with awe and gratitude for His blessings. He wants us to set up memorials in our hearts testifying to the provisions He has given us.

     HYSHAM, Mont. (AP) - Three North Dakota residents were killed in a rollover crash on Interstate 94 near Hysham in eastern Montana. The Montana Highway Patrol reports a sport utility vehicle was westbound in the passing lane at about 12:20 p.m. on Thursday when it clipped the rear of a westbound vehicle in the driving lane. Trooper Scott McDermott says the contact caused the driver lost control of the SUV and it ended up overturning through the median and coming to rest on its wheels in the eastbound lane.
 
     The patrol says a 52-year-old woman and a 60-year-old man, both from Strasburg, North Dakota, and a 55-year-old woman from Bismarck, North Dakota died at the scene. Their names have not been released. The other vehicle was able to pull over to the side of the road. Its two occupants were unhurt.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Containment of a large wildfire burning in the Little Missouri National Grassland of western North Dakota has reached 70 percent. The U.S. Forest Service says firefighters were aided by cooler temperatures and advanced containment by 10 percent from Thursday to early today.
 
     The fire started Saturday in a remote area and isn't threatening any structures, people or livestock. The cause isn't known. Officials say the fire in some areas could continue to smolder for weeks. About one-third of the Maah Daah Hey hiking, biking and horseback riding trail remains closed, along with two campgrounds.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The drought in North Dakota is contributing to a high number of wildfires across the state. The state Department of Emergency Services says firefighters have battled nearly 200 wildfires since March. McKenzie County had the most fires with 18 since March. KXMB-TV reports 15 counties didn't have any wildfires. Most of those counties are in the northeast part of the state. Fires have been reported every single day for the last 25 days. The latest U.S. Drought Monitor map shows nearly three-fourths of the state in some stage of drought, up from about two-thirds last week.

     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is seeking public comment on its final Environmental Impact Statement for the Souris River flood protection program in North Dakota.
 
     The Minot Daily News reports that the EIS posted Thursday includes the project's overview and focuses on the phases through Minot ready to begin construction. The Souris River Joint Water Resources Board is proposing to alter Minot's current flood reduction project by constructing new levees and flood walls.  
 
     The EIS is one part of the information needed for the Corps' consideration of a Section 408 permit for the flood protection construction. The permit is one of the major components for the project to continue. The statement is online and at Minot's libraries. Public review and comment for the statement will end in August.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A trade group representing pharmacy benefit managers has filed a federal lawsuit challenging two new North Dakota laws that broaden oversight on the managers and require disclosure of some financial information.
 
     The Washington, D.C.-based Pharmaceutical Care Management Association says the laws, which take effect on August 1, would increase drug costs and could "threaten patient safety." The suit wants a judge to halt the laws' enforcement.
 
     Pharmacy benefit managers, or PBMs, negotiate with drug makers on behalf of health insurers, employers and unions that cover medications.
 
     Backers of the legislation testified that PBMs lack oversight in North Dakota. The two bills sailed through the Legislature, and Gov. Doug Burgum signed them in April.
 
     A spokeswoman for the North Dakota attorney general's office decline comment on the lawsuit.
