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) - Gov. Doug Burgum has appointed Judge Jon Jensen to the North Dakota Supreme Court. Burgum on Wednesday named Jensen to replace Justice Carol Kapsner. Kapsner announced her resignation in April after nearly 18 years on the state's highest court.
 
     In a statement, Burgum says Jensen "brings a wealth of private sector, public sector, legal and judicial experience." He was among three finalists whose names were forwarded to the governor by a nominating committee.
 
     Jensen is presiding judge for the Northeast Central District. He is a graduate of the University of North Dakota School of Law and previously was in private practice in Grand Forks. Jensen will serve at least two years before the general election in November 2020, when he must run for a new term.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has stopped in North Dakota on his personal challenge to visit every state in the U.S. this year. Zuckerberg visited the Bakken on Tuesday and toured an oil rig near Williston. During his two-hour tour, Zuckerberg visited with oil and gas employees and learned about their jobs in North Dakota.
 
     In a Facebook post, Zuckerberg said regardless of people's views on energy, he thinks people will find the Bakken community "fascinating." And while he said many people he talked to acknowledged climate change, Zuckerberg said they also "feel a sense of pride that their work contributes to serving real needs we all have every day."
 
     The tour was organized by the North Dakota Petroleum Council with help from Statoil, Nabors Drilling and Neset Consulting Service.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Want to live in a governor's mansion without being elected? Then North Dakota has a deal for you, with a catch. The 10,000-square-foot house has served North Dakota's first families for 57 years. The state wants to preserve it while making way for a larger $5 million mansion, but that means the old house needs to be moved no later than September.

    Unpretentious and sturdy, the prairie-style brick Governor's Residence has stood since 1960 as a metaphor for the state. Lawmakers have been trying to replace it for years, saying in part that it doesn't dazzle visiting dignitaries and has security issues.

    Capitol Facilities Manager John Boyle says proposals will be taken through Aug. 2. A local home mover says moving such a house could cost at least $250,000.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - President Donald Trump has approved a disaster declaration for parts of North Dakota hit by major spring flooding. Trump on Wednesday ordered federal aid to supplement state, tribal and local recovery efforts in 10 counties and the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa Reservation. Gov. Doug Burgum says the declaration triggers federal assistance of about $3.25 million to cover eligible costs in the affected communities.

     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - A downtown bar is suing the city of Minot in federal court for the right to operate as a strip club. Envy Gentlemen's Club was forced to stop offering entertainment dancing in 2011 as a result of a new city ordinance restricting where such clubs can operate. The city is asking for the case to be dismissed.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Gov. Doug Burgum has further relaxed commercial driving restrictions to help drought-stricken North Dakota farmers and ranchers. His executive order Wednesday allows producers to drive farm vehicles farther than 150 miles without a commercial driver's license. That means they can travel longer distances to transport livestock, hay and water. Burgum earlier waived driving hour restrictions on commercial haulers of hay, water and livestock, and eased weight limits for those trucks.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Charges have been dropped against a drone operator accused of stalking private security workers during a protest last year over the Dakota Access oil pipeline. Myron Dewey had been scheduled for trial Wednesday on a misdemeanor stalking charge. The Bismarck Tribune reports that prosecutors asked to drop the charge Monday after a judge ruled to suppress evidence taken from the drone, saying the state hadn't proved that authorities' seizure of the drone was legal.
