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.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota regulators say cleanup is nearing completion four years after a pipeline break spilled more than 20,000 barrels of oil in a wheat field in northwestern North Dakota. The Tesoro pipeline spill was discovered by a Tioga farmer in 2013. It has been called one of the largest onshore spills in U.S. history. The company says a lightning strike may have caused the rupture.

    Regulators say excavation of the site is scheduled for completion this month, with the land ready for replanting next spring. More than 1 million tons of soil has been removed from the 13-acre site. Most of the oil from the spill has been baked from the soil before it's replaced. The company estimates cleanup costs at $73 million.

     FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) - The Indian Health Service has set agency standards for patient wait times more than a year after being criticized by a government watchdog for doing a poor job tracking them. The agency says the wait time for a primary care visit will be 28 days and 48 hours for urgent care, on average.

    Chief Medical Officer Capt. Michael Toedt says the standards are meant to improve access to health care for American Indians and Alaska Natives. The U.S. Government Accountability Office found wait times at direct-run IHS facilities were reviewed inconsistently or not at all. The report issued last year said some tribal members waited months to see a physician.

    Tribes and tribal entities that run health care facilities under contract with IHS set their own standards.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - The Senate Judiciary committee has unanimously approved U.S. District Judge Ralph Erickson of Fargo to serve on the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. North Dakota's U.S. senators, John Hoeven and Heidi Heitkamp, announced Erickson's approval Thursday. The committee approval is the final step before the full Senate votes on Erickson's nomination. President Donald Trump nominated Erickson in June.
