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.

GRANVILLE, N.D. (AP) - No injuries were reported when a water truck crashed into an Amtrak train in northern North Dakota.
 
     The Highway Patrol says the crash happened about 7:40 a.m. Thursday, at a rural crossing west of Granville. The driver was cited for failing to yield to the train.
 
     The train was damaged but was able to continue on to Minot. Amtrak spokesman Marc Magliari told the Minot Daily News that there were 338 passengers and 16 crew members aboard.

FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A St. Michael man has been sentenced to five years in federal prison for striking and killing a 5-year-old boy with his vehicle.
 
     Authorities say 52-year-old Richard Jackson was driving drunk and speeding when he hit the child on May 21, 2016.
 
     U.S. Attorney Chris Myers says Jackson was sentenced Wednesday for involuntary manslaughter. He'll be on probation for three years following his prison term.

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A Bismarck men's emergency shelter is planning to shut its doors and sell.
 
     The Bismarck Tribune reports that Interim Executive Director Steve Neu confirmed last week that financial difficulties have led to the closure of the Ruth Meiers Hospitality House.
 
     Neu says the organization wants to refocus its efforts to broader services for families and community reintegration.
 
     The shelter offers a residential program that provides short-term housing and casework services. Apartments are also available for homeless people in need of affordable accommodations.
 
     The emergency shelter houses about 30 to 70 homeless men a night. Neu says at maximum capacity the facility can house 300 people.
 
     Neu says a closing date hasn't been set. But he says he wants to work with the city to create more emergency shelters.

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A federal judge has cleared the way for completion of a $244 million project to bring Missouri River water to residents of northwestern North Dakota.
 
     Judge Rosemary Collyer on Thursday ruled that the Northwest Area Water Supply project complies with federal environmental law.
 
     NAWS was first authorized by Congress 31 years ago. It's been tied up in the courts the last 15 years because the state of Missouri and the Canadian province of Manitoba have concerns about water quality and water depletion.
 
     The federal Bureau of Reclamation in 2015 released its final environmental study, calling for more stringent water treatment. Collyer says the study satisfies federal law requirements. She ruled in favor of the U.S. government, rejected Manitoba's claim and dismissed Missouri's.
 
     Both plaintiffs can appeal.

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Bismarck is expected to be one of four sites for a pilot program aimed to help people in the criminal justice system find addiction and behavioral health services.
 
     The Bismarck Tribune reports that although some resources exist, many offenders are falling through the cracks and going back to jail. The $7.5 million program will fund caseworkers to keep offenders on track.
 
     The initiative is funded by the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation's biennial budget set aside for behavioral health.
 
     The Corrections Department and the Human Services Department will accept applications from vendors later this month. Potential vendors that could hire caseworkers include treatment centers, health care providers and community organizations.
 
     The pilot program is expected to launch in the fall. Programs also will launch in Devils Lake, Fargo and Dickinson.
