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.

Police in Fargo say they are questioning two people in the disappearance of a pregnant woman.....

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Police in Fargo say they are questioning two people in the disappearance of a pregnant woman. Chief Dave Todd also says police found a newborn infant at the residence where they carried out a search warrant Thursday. Todd says police don't know yet whether the infant is the child of Savanna Greywind. The 22-year-old Greywind was last seen at her apartment Saturday afternoon.

    KFGO radio, citing an unidentified neighbor, reported that police carried an infant from Greywind's apartment building Thursday. The building was surrounded by police tape.

    Todd did not give any details about the two people in custody. He also said police had no new information about Greywind's whereabouts.

    Ground, air and river searches in the Fargo and Grand Forks areas so far have proved unsuccessful.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Education Fact-Finding Commission is recommending that the Bismarck Public Schools create a new committee to discuss teacher safety concerns.

    The Bismarck Tribune reports the commission issued their recommendation Wednesday following a public impasse hearing last week. During the impasse several teachers attested to the violence they've encountered in their classrooms.

    The commission suggested the school district establish a safety and health committee to look into the incidents in response to the testimonies and the Bismarck Education Association's proposal to add safe workplace language into teacher contracts. The teachers union and the district would appoint members to the committee.

    Association negotiator Toni Gumeringers says she was pleased with the commission's recommendation for a committee.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Environmental groups being sued by the developer of the Dakota Access pipeline say the lawsuit is an attack on free speech. They also say it's an effort to punish supporters of American Indian tribes that opposed the project over fears of environmental harm.

    Texas-based Energy Transfer Partners this week sued Greenpeace, BankTrack and Earth First, alleging they disseminated false and misleading information and damaged the company. ETP seeks money damages that could approach $1 billion.

    BankTrack maintains it did nothing wrong in speaking out about potential impacts of the $3.8 billion pipeline to move North Dakota oil to Illinois. Greenpeace says the lawsuit is meritless, harassment and an attempt to silence free speech.

    ETP says it has an obligation to its shareholders, partners and stakeholders to file the lawsuit.

There have been 29 confirmed human West Nile virus cases in the state this year.  Last year, North Dakota had 85 cases and two deaths.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Drought has eased over the past week in North Dakota but still blankets the western part of the state. The latest U.S. Drought Monitor map shows 63 percent of the state in some form of drought, down from 82 percent last week. Some ranchers in the state are being forced to drill new water wells, with their existing wells drying up.

     PARSHALL, N.D. (AP) - Voters have narrowly rejected spending $5.4 million on a new school on the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation. The bond referendum in the Parshall School District received 55 percent approval in Tuesday's election, but it needed 60 percent to pass. The school district wanted to replace its elementary and high school buildings with a new K-12 school. The existing schools were built in the 1960s and have structural and asbestos issues.
