I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought, and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.

Tribal leaders in North Dakota are calling for action after a missing Fargo woman was later found killed....

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Tribal leaders in North Dakota are calling for action after a missing Fargo woman was later found killed. The United Tribes of North Dakota plan to send a letter to North Dakota's congressional delegation. The letter seeks justice for the family of 22-year-old Savanna Greywind and the families of missing and murdered American Indian women.
 
     The Bismarck Tribune reports the letter was approved during the recent Tribal Leaders Summit in Bismarck. Among the recommendations is a task force to reopen cold cases of missing and murdered American Indian women.
 
     Greywind was eight months pregnant when her family last saw her alive on Aug. 19. Greywind's newborn girl was found alive in the apartment of two people charged in the case. Greywind's body was found in the Red River.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A recent incident in Fargo in which three Muslim women were threatened in a Walmart parking lot has human rights groups and others pushing for a comprehensive hate crime law in North Dakota.
 
     The idea for a statewide statute is not popular with lawmakers and prosecutors, who say that a specific hate crime law would be harder to prove. They believe that judges already take the nature of an offense in account during sentencing.
 
     Fargo leaders are looking into beefing up local ordinances on hate crimes.
 
     The much-publicized threat captured on an online video last month showed a white woman telling three Muslim women sitting in that "we're going to kill all of you." The woman who made the comment later apologized in a meeting arranged by the Fargo police chief.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota Bakken sweet crude oil is seeing increased demand and is temporarily priced at a premium due to recent hurricanes that hit Texas and Florida.
 
     North Dakota Pipeline Authority director Justin Kringstad says refineries on the Gulf Coast are trying to make up for shortages of gasoline and diesel fuel. He says Bakken runs well through refineries to maximize the yield, and the price of Bakken oil should stay up "in the near term" before going back down.
 
     North Dakota's oil production rose slightly in July and remained above 1 million barrels per day for the sixth consecutive month. State Mineral Resources Director Lynn Helms says if per-barrel prices rise above $50 as expected, production of a million barrels a day could become routine.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Medical response teams from North Dakota have been sent to Florida to help vulnerable people who are staying in hurricane shelters. The North Dakota Department of Health says it sent 23 paramedics, registered nurses and EMTs to the Florida Keys.
 
     Florida requested help through the Emergency Management Assistance Compact, which allows a disaster-impacted state to request and quickly receive assistance from other states. Florida will reimburse North Dakota's costs.
 
     Health department Emergency Preparedness and Response section chief Tim Wiedrich says North Dakota stands ready to support others in their time of need.

    FARGO, N.D. (AP) - The Fargo and Moorhead, Minnesota area is trying to show refugees and other newcomers that it's a welcoming community. KVRR-TV reports that the two cities along the Red River have organized 23 events for Welcome Week 2017, a 10-day event that features 23 educational and social events.
 
     Some say 23 events can be too much, but organizer Peter Schott said it is part of what makes Fargo's welcome week unique. Schott coordinates the international potluck that kicks off the event. The state's resettlement program has relocated an average of 450 refugees a year in the past decade, most in the Fargo area.

     BEACH, N.D. (AP) - Students at a small high school in the North Dakota Badlands were treated to a rock concert mixed with financial advice. The band Gooding stopped in Beach earlier this week as part of its "Funding Futures Tour" meant to help students learn how to manage money. Beach is located near the North Dakota and Montana border.

    Band front man Steven Gooding tells KXMB-TV that the band plays its music first before getting into the financial discussions. He says music "makes the medicine go down." About 160 students attended the concert. Gooding says he was impressed with their participation and questions.
