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) - The company that built the Dakota Access Pipeline is giving North Dakota $15 million to help cover the costs of policing extensive protests of the pipeline. A spokesman for Gov. Doug Burgum told The Associated Press on Thursday that Texas-based Energy Transfer Partners has wired the money.
 
     North Dakota already had borrowed $43 million to cover law enforcement costs for the protests, which lasted months. The state this week also got a $10 million grant from the U.S. Justice Department to help pay some of the policing bills.
 
     ETP had a longstanding offer to help cover some costs, but former Gov. Jack Dalrymple had declined. He said it was unclear whether the state could legally accept it. Gov. Doug Burgum has long said he was open to the offer.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A woman accused of conspiring to kill a Fargo woman and take her infant has pleaded not guilty to three charges. Brooke Crews showed no emotion Thursday during her brief appearance in East Central District Court. She is charged with conspiracy to commit murder, kidnapping and giving false information to officers. Her boyfriend, William Hoehn, pleaded not guilty earlier this week to the same charges.
 
     Crews and Hoehn were neighbors of 22-year-old Savanna Greywind. Her newborn was found in their apartment days after she disappeared. Her body was found in the Red River a few days later. The baby is in the custody of her father, Greywind's boyfriend.

     ST. LOUIS (AP) - The U.S. Senate has overwhelmingly approved a North Dakota judge to serve on the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. The Senate voted 95-1 Thursday to confirm Judge Ralph Erickson of Fargo to the St. Louis-based court. Clerk of the Court Michael Gans says Erickson will replace Kermit E. Bye, who retired last year.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - American Indian activist Chase Iron Eyes says new leadership for the Standing Rock Sioux might bolster efforts to repair relations with county, state and federal officials that were strained during tribally led protests against the Dakota Access oil pipeline. Tribal Chairman Dave Archambault on Wednesday was defeated in his bid for re-election. Iron Eyes sometimes clashed with Archambault over protest tactics, though he says Archambault overall represented the tribe well.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - An English instructor who helps immigrant students and others who are not native English speakers is North Dakota's Teacher of the Year for 2018. Fargo South High School's Leah Juelke was selected from a group of five finalists for the award, which she received Thursday during a ceremony at the school.
 
     Juelke has taught at Fargo South since 2013. Three years ago, she started a writing project for her immigrant students called "Journey to America." They wrote essays about growing up in refugee camps, hiding under beds while their villages burned, and having family members killed in wars. Anthologies of their stories have been published.
 
     Other finalists for the award were Heather Jane Tomlin-Rohr of Jamestown, Sandra Evenson of West Fargo, Thomas Klapp of Hunter, and Lynae Holmen of Minot.
