TODAY'S THOUGHT

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.

The North Dakota Air National Guard's intelligence gathering group has a new building at the Fargo base.....

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Air National Guard's intelligence gathering group has a new building at the Fargo base. KFGO radio reports that the $7.3 million, 19,000-square-feet facility will house 200 personnel who collect and analyze information involving enemy targets and communication networks.
 
     Wing Commander Col. Thomas Hatley says the desire for so-called target analysis has been a priority since the 9-11 attacks. He says the mission "touches points all over the world." The base's intelligence squadrons had been working out of three separate buildings spread out across the base, including a former engine shop for F-16 fighter jets once flown by the 119th Wing.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Realtors from Bismarck and Mandan say the local market is heavy with homeowners looking to upgrade. Bismarck-Mandan Board of Realtors President Tricia Schlosser calls the Bismarck-Mandan "a great 'move-up' market," adding that continued low interest rates are helping. She tells The Bismarck Tribune that area currently has 2.5 to 3.5 months of inventory for homes in the $200,000 or less price range.
 
     With a higher demand for homes, buyers have been able to negotiate more and move into the $350,000 to $400,000 price range, which has five months of inventory. Sellers are still able to collect about more than 95 percent of the original asking price of those homes. The number of active listings is nearly 900, up by about 100 from last year, and up 500 from 2011.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota courts, Stutsman County and the Jamestown Police Department have agreed to make policy changes after failing to provide a sign-language interpreter for a deaf Bismarck woman following her arrest. Christine Stein sued the court system, the county and city of Jamestown last year. The $90,000 settlement requires Stutsman County and Jamestown to improve their procedure for interacting with deaf and hard-of-hearing people

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Efforts to oust officials in North Dakota communities have risen for the third year in a row. The Bismarck Tribune reports that nine recall committees across the state have targeted 11 officials this year, compared to seven recall efforts in 2016. Among this year's recalls is Julie Johnson, who was serving her second term as a member of the Kindred City Council when she ousted Tuesday after a three-way election. Jason DuBord will take her place in October.

     MANDAN, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota has its first accredited FootGolf course. The Bismarck Tribune reports the sport is similar to golf and involves kicking a soccer ball into 21-inch diameter cups, in as few shots as possible. Players wear golf, turf or athletic shoes. Cleats are prohibited from the course, as they could damage the greens.
 
     Golf course operations manager Brad Olson says North Dakota was the last state in the nation to acquire an accredited course. The course in Mandan has 18 holes with two sets of tees for any skill level. The FootGolf season will end Oct. 15, to allow plenty of time to winterize the golf course.
