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.

North Dakota lawmakers say the state needs more time to craft rules to oversee the state's voter-approved medical marijuana law.....

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota lawmakers say the state needs more time to craft rules to oversee the state's voter-approved medical marijuana law. A joint House and Senate meeting was held today to consider a proposal to delay the law until the end of July. The measure is supported by both Republican and Democratic leaders.
 
     Republican Senate Majority Leader Rich Wardner says the intent is to ensure the law is regulated correctly. He says it isn't a move by lawmakers to keep the law from going into effect.
 
     The so-called North Dakota Compassionate Care Act won 65 percent voter approval in November. It allows the use of marijuana as medicine for people who suffer from one of several debilitating illnesses.

     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's fourth-largest city is looking to tighten its belt. The Minot Daily News reports Minot has experienced a 30 percent drop in state aid and a 20 percent decline in city sales tax collections.
 
     City Manager Tom Barry says officials have identified $13 million in infrastructure improvements that could be delayed, including design of a new fire station.
 
     The City Council also might re-examine the sales tax structure to possibly provide more money for flood protection work. The tax is estimated to bring in about $4.5 million for that this year. Barry says that might not be enough in coming years.
 
     Another issue the city needs to deal with is debt. The city's debt has increased about 165 percent in the past four years, due mainly to growth.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A former Mercer County jailer who shot up a hotel in western North Dakota won't serve any prison time. Judge Bruce Haskell gave 27-year-old Michael Peterson, of Hazen, a suspended sentence of one year at Friday's hearing. Police say Peterson drunkenly fired a rifle about 32 times on Feb. 28 at the Dakota Farms Inn in Beulah. No one was injured. He pleaded guilty to four counts of reckless endangerment.

     CAVALIER, N.D. (AP) - Hundreds of people gathered in a small North Dakota town to celebrate the life of a husband, father and Navy SEAL who died in a kayaking accident off the Virginia coast.
 
     Devon Grube grew up in the community of Cavalier where family, friends and others attended a memorial service at the public school gym Sunday. The 35-year-old Grube died Dec. 28, with six months of service left as a Navy SEAL.
 
     Grube enlisted in the Navy following the 9/11 terrorist attacks and served tours in Afghanistan, Europe and Africa. His commander, John Clift, said that as a community of brotherhood warriors, his fellow SEALS would answer the call when his family needed them.
 
     WDAZ-TV says Grube's widow, Margie, spoke to the crowed about her promise to keep her husband's spirit alive by channeling his humor, strength and love.
