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.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A Fargo native who marched with white nationalists at a deadly rally in Virginia says he's planning an October demonstration in his hometown and guarantees that it will be peaceful.
 
     Peter Tefft says he's hoping to get as many as 300 people to join him in downtown Fargo. He says he can guarantee that there won't be violence because the city is more tolerant than others.
 
     Fargo Mayor Tim Mahoney says he is working with police and other officials on a plan to keep people safe if the rally is held. He says it's nearly impossible to deny a permit, but the city has discretion on where the demonstration is held. Mahoney says he has received numerous emails and phone calls from people who want Tefft's group to stay away.

    MINOT, ND - The main entrance to Roosevelt Park Zoo at 13th Street SE will reopen to vehicle traffic on Monday, Aug. 21, as the construction project on Burdick Expressway East continues to reach major milestones.

    Visitors to the Zoo can now use the13th Street SE intersection as the entrance into the Zoo. Visitors will temporarily exit the Zoo parking lot on a service road that takes them through Roosevelt Park to an exit point onto Central Avenue.

    "Maintaining access to Roosevelt Park Zoo has been one of the focuses of this project. There's more work to be done, but reopening this intersection is another big step for us," said City Engineer Lance Meyer. "We appreciate the patience of everyone at the Zoo and all the Zoo's visitors this summer as we continue to work toward completing this vital infrastructure upgrade."

    Signs have been placed on Valley Street to help direct traffic to the Zoo, Corbett Field and other locations, including the Roosevelt Plaza. Temporary traffic signals have been installed at the intersection of Valley Street and 13th Street SE and at the intersection of Valley Street and 27th Street SE to help manage the increased volume of traffic.

    The Burdick Expressway East project will replace underground water, sanitary sewer, and storm sewer pipes, while widening the driving lanes. New lighting, sidewalks, traffic signals and signage will also be installed. A portion of the curve just east of 9th St. SE will be straightened for safety reasons.

    The entire Burdick Expressway project has a completion date of Oct. 28.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Two childhood friends from Minnesota are recovering at a North Dakota hospital after one gave the other a life changing gift. WDAY-TV reports that Julie Lundquist received a kidney from her longtime friend, Deb Brogard. Lundquist is now recouping at Sanford Hospital in Fargo.
 
     Lundquist says she was informed she needed a transplant to survive after going through a year of dialysis. She later used social media to ask for help in finding a donor.
 
     Brogard says she volunteered without hesitation. She went through weeks of physical and psychological testing. She says being a donor is an honor and a blessing. She hopes more people think about becoming a living donor.
 
     Sanford Health says kidneys from living donors usually function immediately and there are fewer chances for rejection.
