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.

A firefighter who was at a nearby campground attempted CPR but could not resuscitate the boy.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - One hundred years after World War I, a powwow in North Dakota will honor Native Americans who served in the conflict before they were considered U.S. citizens. They're being remembered at the 48th annual International Powwow next weekend at United Tribes Technical College in Bismarck. The Bismarck Tribune reports that several hundred family members and descendants of World War I Native servicemen are expected to participate on Sunday, Sept. 10.

    The grand entry will feature honor guards and drum groups from the five governing tribes of the college: the Mandan, Hidatsa and Arikara Nation; Sisseton-Wahpeton Oyate; the Spirit Lake and Standing Rock Sioux tribes, and the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa. Names will be read of more than 355 veterans from the five tribes who served in World War I.

     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - A popular Minot golf course is being rebuilt six years after the Souris River flood. The Minot Daily News reports that the new and improved Apple Grove Golf Course will include contours to the fairways where they once were flat, tee boxes and greens have also been moved. Other changes include reconfigured golf holes to add distance from tee to green.

    Hundreds of golfers felt the loss of the Apple Grove Golf Course when it was covered by the 2011 flood. The course was left with silt, uprooted trees and more damage that would take a lot of time and work to make the facility playable again. The course quickly became popular with Minot's golfing community after opening in 1979. The course's owners to open the improved facility in 2018.

     BUFFALO, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Supreme Court has upheld the state Health Department's decision to issue a permit for a 9,000-hog farm in Buffalo. Many of the town's 200 residents had worried about potential pollution from the $15 million facility at Rolling Green Family Farms. But the Health Department granted a permit, saying the farm would meet state standards. The state also added conditions to the permit to address concerns about odor, surface water and groundwater.

    Opponents went to court last year and asked a judge to block the project and rescind the permit. But the judge refused and the state Supreme Court upheld that decision in an opinion filed earlier this week. Minnesota-based Pipestone Holdings will operate the facility.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - State agriculture officials in the Northern Plains are starting the process of divvying up tons of hay donated from around the country to help drought-plagued ranchers in the region.

    North Dakota's Agriculture Department, North Dakota State University and the Michigan-based nonprofit Ag Community Relief this month launched a program to accept hay donations for ranchers in the Dakotas and Montana.

    Midnight Thursday was the deadline for applications. Nearly 1,400 ranchers from the three states applied for dozens of semi-loads of hay donated from around the U.S. It's being distributed through a lottery drawing.

    North Dakota Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring says the response has been uplifting. Goehring also says getting more hay donations to North Dakota might be difficult, with the nation's focus turning to helping hurricane-ravaged ranchers in Texas.
