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.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A Denver woman accused of shooting at law enforcement officers during a protest against the Dakota Access pipeline has been moved to a Fargo halfway house to await trial.
 
     The Bismarck Tribune says court documents show marshals were set to transport Red Fawn Fallis from the Stutsman County Correctional Center to Fargo. Chad Jackson, administrator of jail in Jamestown, confirms that Fallis left his facility.
 
     Fallis is due to stand trial beginning Jan. 29 on allegations that she fired a handgun three times as officers tried to arrest her at a protest last year. She has pleaded not guilty to federal charges that include discharge of a firearm in a crime of violence and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Her trial is expected to last 10 days.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem says a closed-door meeting in Fargo that included Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt did not violate the state's open meetings law.
 
     KFGO radio asked for the opinion because two of the three members of the state Industrial Commission attended the Aug. 9 meeting and reporters were not allowed in the room.
 
     Stenehjem says it was not a meeting of the Industrial Commission because it did not involve public business by the commission. He says the meeting focused on a clean water rule enacted during the Obama administration. Stenehjem, who attended the meeting, says he told the two commission members at the start of the gathering that one of them would have to leave if any issues were raised regarding the commission.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A Fargo police officer who was arrested after an argument with his girlfriend at his home in Moorhead, Minnesota, in June has resigned. KFGO-AM reports that Jeremiah Ferris left the force after a meeting Friday with Police Chief Dave Todd.
 
     Online court records show the 35-year-old Ferris pleaded guilty to misdemeanor disorderly conduct in Clay County District Court in Minnesota in late August, while misdemeanor domestic assault charges were dismissed. He was ordered to complete a chemical use assessment and follow the resulting recommendations.
 
     Todd says Ferris was allowed to purchase his K9 partner for a nominal fee. He says it was best for the dog and for Ferris, who had been with the department for eight years.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A drain tile system that was built to bring flood relief to North Dakota home owners 6 miles northeast of Bismarck has other landowners concerned the diversion could contaminate groundwater on their property.
 
     The Bismarck Tribune reports that Alton and Arlene Nitschke are worried about the quality and quantity of water that could be discharged onto their land. They're appealing a permit that the Burleigh County Water Resource District granted to itself for a drainage project meant to remove excessive groundwater from the Hay Creek Pines subdivision.
 
     The Nitschkes say the groundwater has been polluted by coliform and other contaminants. The couple owns about 40 acres of land and has lived south of the subdivision for 24 years.

     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - Highway officials in North Dakota and the Canadian province of Saskatchewan say a super two-lane highway might be the best way to facilitate traffic from Regina to Jamestown.
 
     David Marit is the minister of Highways & Infrastructure in Saskatchewan. He tells the Minot Daily News that the province is planning to build 16 to 18 sets of passing lanes on about 100 miles of Provincial 39, with potential completion by 2020.
 
     Thomas Sorel is the director of the North Dakota Department of Transportation. He says similar plans are worth considering for U.S. Highway 52, which picks up where Provincial 39 leaves off. Sorel says the state has invested an estimated $85 million in Highway 52 since 2011 and more maintenance is planned.

     MEDORA, N.D. (AP) - High winds have taken down the top of an old cottonwood known as a "hanging tree" in Medora. A 15-foot-tall section of trunk is all that remains of the tree in front of Medora's post office. Ed Sahlstrom, assistant site supervisor for the Chateau de Mores, tells The Bismarck Tribune the cottonwood was probably the oldest tree in Medora and appears in photos from the 1800s.
 
     There is no record of a hanging ever occurring in Medora, but the tree mistakenly became known as a "hanging tree" following the verdict of a controversial murder trial during wild West days.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - An estimated 2,500 people attended a service in Bismarck on Sunday marking the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. The Rev. Marv Mutzenberger posed as Martin Luther for the commemoration at the Bismarck Event Center. He tells the Bismarck Tribune he first donned a Luther costume when he was a pastor at Bismarck State College in 1983.
 
     Luther posted his 95 theses on the door of a Catholic church in Wittenberg, Germany, on Oct. 31, 1517. His move eventually led to a split in the church.
 
     Mutzenberger led a procession of about 70 to 80 clergy members. An 80-member choir sang the Lutheran hymn, "A Mighty Fortress." Other denominations were present as well, including a Methodist bishop and a representative from an Episcopal church.
