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.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - An appeals court rejected a Bismarck lawyer's argument that mandatory fees to the North Dakota Bar Association violate his free speech rights because the money has gone to political activity he doesn't support.

    WDAY-TV reports the 8th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals issued its ruling this week disagreeing with arguments raised by the Phoenix-based Goldwater Institute, a conservative think tank that filed the suit on behalf of the lawyer. The institute argues attorneys should be given the choice to opt in to political spending by the association. The institute says 18 other states provide that option.

    The lawsuit was filed on behalf of a self-employed attorney who objected to a $50,000 contribution to a political action committee that opposed a bill regarding shared parenting time and responsibility in 2014.

    BISMARCK, N.D. - The North Dakota National Guard's 957th Engineer Company will be conducting field training exercises this weekend at the Kimball Bottoms area, south of Bismarck. The recreational area, including the off-highway vehicle trails, will be closed to the public from 8 a.m. Aug. 19 until 4 p.m. Aug. 20.

    More than 120 Soldiers will be at the site conducting boating and bridging operations on the Missouri River. The Kimball Bottoms area will be closed to vehicle traffic for the safety of the public. The river will not be closed to the public, but visitors are asked to exercise caution while in the area.

    Additionally, the Guardsmen will occasionally operate in and around Nelson Lake, near Center, North Dakota, during the same time period, however, no areas will be closed to the public there.

    The N.D. National Guard is asking the public to be aware of the training activities near Kimball Bottoms and Nelson Lake and to use extreme caution since there will be increased vehicle and boat traffic during unit training operations. The public's cooperation and understanding is appreciated.

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Minnesota regulators have released the final environmental review of Enbridge Energy's proposal to replace its aging Line 3 oil pipeline, which carries Canadian crude across northern Minnesota to Wisconsin.

    The document has been updated since the draft was released for public comment in May. Changes include additional discussion of the socio-economic impacts of the project, the potential impacts on tribal resources and the potential impacts of oil spills.

    Line 3 runs from Alberta to Wisconsin. Enbridge proposed the $7.5 billion project because the old pipeline is restricted to 390,000 barrels per day. The replacement would restore the original capacity of 760,000. Tribal and environmental groups are fighting it.

    The review will inform the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission as it decides whether the project is needed and on its route.
