TODAY'S THOUGHT

We can always find something to be thankful for, and there may be reasons why we ought to be thankful for even those dispensations which appear dark and frowning.

Williston police have a suspect in custody in an early morning homicide....

     WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - Officers responded to a report of a man being shot shortly before 3 a.m. today. Forty-three-year-old Vance Neset was taken to a hospital and later pronounced dead.
 
     The suspect initially fled, and police warned the public that the man was considered armed and dangerous. Authorities announced his capture shortly before midday. The 27-year-old man wasn't immediately charged. Local, regional and state law officers are investigating.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's oil production dropped slightly in May but remained above 1 million barrels per day for the fourth consecutive month. The Department of Mineral Resources says the state produced an average of 1.04 million barrels of oil daily in May, down from 1.05 million barrels in April.
 
     North Dakota also produced 1.85 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day in May, up from 1.83 billion cubic feet daily in April. The May tallies are the latest figures available.
 
     There were 58 drill rigs operating in North Dakota today, up eight from the May average.

     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) - Bad weather last winter and drought this summer might combine to put a damper on the fall pheasant hunt in North Dakota. A spring crowing count survey conducted by the state Game and Fish Department indicated the population might be down about 14 percent from a year ago. Upland game management biologist R.J. Gross says last year's pheasant production was below average, and a rough December and January was hard on birds.
 
     The spring data isn't always a good indicator of what the pheasant population will be in the fall when hunters take to the field. Brood surveys that will begin in a couple of weeks will provide a better indication. But state Wildlife Chief Jeb Williams says extreme drought this summer could have an impact on the pheasant population.
