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.

     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - A Minot woman who pleaded guilty to negligent homicide in a fatal Ward County crash two years ago has been sentenced to two years in prison. Authorities say 35-year-old Cocoa Cummings was speeding while driving a pickup truck that collided head-on with another vehicle near Plaza in August 2015, killing the other driver. Twenty-six-year-old Brittany Westman died at the scene. Cummings pleaded guilty in April and was sentenced Friday. She'll be on probation for three years following her prison term.

     WILLOW CITY, N.D. (AP) - The remains of a North Dakota sailor who was killed at Pearl Harbor have been laid to rest in his home state. KXMC-TV reports that Navy Fireman 1st Class Lawrence Fecho was buried with full military honors during a service in Willow City on Sunday. Family members including Fecho's sister were on hand.

    MINOT, ND - The City of Minot is offering a Ride Transit Free week. Today through Friday there is no charge to use the City of Minot Transit buses.

    "We offered a Ride Transit Free week last year, and it was very well-received by the residents of Minot," said Brian Horinka, Superintendent of Transit for the City of Minot. "It provides an opportunity for our regular riders to use the system free for a week, but it also helps showcase the system for those who may be less familiar with what the City of Minot transit system has to offer."

    During the Ride Transit Free week, the City buses will run their regular routes.

    In conjunction with the free week, Horinka said the City is launching a new mobile application to help riders track buses on their smartphone or through the Minot City Transit website on an interactive map. The RouteShout 2.0 app can be downloaded on iPhone and Android devices at no cost from the Apple Store or Google Play.

    Riders will now be able to more conveniently plan trips, reduce wait times at bus stops, and be notified of any schedule or route changes in real-time through their smartphone.

    "Minot City Transit is very excited to offer this tool to our riders," said Horinka. "We want to provide all our riders who rely on us every day with the latest transit technology so they can get to work, appointments, and school on time. This helps riders better plan their day and helps us support them."

    In addition to being able to follow buses to see how far they are from a bus stop, riders can also use the "Locate Me" GPS function within RouteShout 2.0 to determine the closest bus stop and save favorite routes and stops for quick look-ups. When emergencies, route changes or weather conditions occur that may affect service, riders can also subscribe to receive notifications.

    The RouteShout 2.0 traveler information system is provided by Routematch Software, an Atlanta-based transit technology company that works extensively with transit agencies.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Federal officials are proposing allowing moose hunting for the first time on the Des Lacs and Upper Souris National Wildlife Refuges in northern North Dakota. The proposal also calls for the Upper Souris refuge to have turkey hunting for the first time. The two refuges already are open to upland game and big game hunting, and Upper Souris also is open to fishing.

    The proposed expansion of outdoors opportunities is through an effort by Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to increase access to hunting and fishing on public lands and waters across the country. The public has about a month to comment on the proposal.
