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.

      CAVALIER, N.D. (AP) - A North Dakota jury has convicted an environmental activist who targeted an oil pipeline a year ago. The Pembina County jury found Michael Foster of Seattle guilty Friday of conspiracy to commit criminal mischief, criminal mischief and trespass. Foster was acquitted of reckless endangerment.

    Foster's actions were part of a broader four-state effort last October to draw attention to climate change. Foster did not deny using a bolt cutter to get through a chain link fence so he could turn the pipeline's shut-off valve. He contended his law-breaking was in the public's interest.

    Samuel Jessup of Winooski, Vermont, who filmed Foster's protest, also stood trial and was convicted of conspiracy. Sentencing for both men is scheduled for Jan. 18. Their attorneys did not respond to requests for comment Sunday.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A former Standing Rock Sioux tribal leader has been sentenced to 30 years in sexually abusing a girl. The Bismarck Tribune reports 54-year-old Robert Fool Bear was sentenced Friday in federal court. He was found guilty in April guilty on four counts related to sexual abuse of a child. Authorities say Fool Bear repeatedly raped the girl for four years. He maintained that the girl made up the story.

    A small number of people attended the sentencing hearing, including Fool Bear's wife, Rhonda Krein Fool Bear. She signed a plea deal in July with federal prosecutors in which she admitted not alerting law enforcement. In exchange, prosecutors agreed to drop a charge alleging that she lied at the trial of her husband. Her sentencing is scheduled for December.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A standoff between an armed man and SWAT team officers ended without injury in Fargo. Police were called to a home Saturday where the gunman was reportedly suicidal. KFGO reports there was another person in the house, but authorities say the man was not making threats against that person. The Red River Valley tactical officers were deployed and neighborhood streets were barricaded. The man was arrested without incident about 2 1/2 hours after the standoff began.

     BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - An energy company is seeking federal approval to build a pipeline in eastern Montana that would transport the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide for use in oil production along the North Dakota border.

    Denbury Resources spokesman John Mayer said the $150 million pipeline would begin near the Wyoming border and stretch 110 miles. The carbon dioxide would come as a byproduct from a pair of natural gas processing plants. It also can be used to breathe life into old oil fields. Companies pump the gas deep underground in order to push out more oil from tapped out reserves.

    The Bureau of Land Management is seeking public comment on the proposal through November 3. Texas-based Denbury hasn't released a construction timeline.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The city of Bismarck has set up a pop-up pathway, a temporary, quick-build pedestrian and bike path stretching from the heart of the city to the Missouri River waterfront.

    The Bismarck Tribune reports that feedback at polling sites along the route through mid-October will be used to design the potential final product, the Bismarck Central Pathway. Quick-builds are gaining traction in communities across the nation.

    Temporary materials such as straw bales, paint, traffic cones and wayfinding signs will be used to highlight the route. Existing sidewalks also will be utilized wherever possible.

    The pop-up pathway will remain in place until Oct. 14. Materials will be removed and the area will be returned to "normal" as the project moves into the next phase.
