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.

     DEVILS LAKE, N.D. (AP) - Another escape from the Lake Region Correctional Facility in Devils Lake has prompted Eddy County commissioners to address safety concerns of the aging building.
 
     Commissioner Ed Brown is calling for a review of the facility, which is more than 40 years old. Most recently a registered sex offender slipped under one fence and over another during an outdoor recreation time. His absence wasn't discovered for 30 hours. The head corrections officer at the time of the escape resigned as a result of the incident.
 
     The Devils Lake Journal says three inmates have escaped since 2015. Commissioners at a meeting this week talked about a range of security issues at the facility, but took no action.

     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - A Minot man has pleaded not guilty to sexually assaulting a 14-year-old runaway girl while working as a hotel clerk. Authorities say the girl had run away from the Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch and went to the Astoria Hotel last Halloween to use the internet. Twenty-four-year-old Mohammed Siddiqui allegedly offered to let her stay in a vacant room and then sexually assaulted her. The Minot Daily News reports Siddiqui is scheduled for trial Sept. 12. He could face up to life in prison if convicted.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A Minnesota contractor that damaged a natural gas pipeline in North Dakota last week has a history of striking pipelines. The damage caused the release of 126,000 gallons of natural gas liquids and shut down a gas processing plant for three days.
 
     State regulators who recently fined Carstensen Contracting of Pipestone, Minnesota, in another incident are investigating. President Brad Carstensen says the company took the necessary steps to locate underground pipelines, and is still investigating what happened.
 
     The Bismarck Tribune reports it's at least the second gas pipeline the contractor has damaged in North Dakota while installing water pipelines. In addition, city leaders in Fort Dodge, Iowa, parted ways with Carstensen last summer after the contractor hit 20 underground utility lines while working on a sewer project.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota may give voter information to a commission looking at election fraud, after all. The state initially said it would not hand over data requested by President Donald Trump's commission in June.
 
     Deputy Secretary of State Jim Silrum said the state would answer the commission's questions about voting procedures but that releasing voter details would violate state law. Silrum told The Associated Press on Thursday that election officials are giving the request a second look after the commission pledged not to make public individual voters' information. He says he expects a decision next week.
 
     More than 15 states denied the request at first. At least five of them are considering complying. New York is the only state that initially said no that now plans to deliver the data.

     SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - South Dakota has been paid for its help policing protests in North Dakota against the Dakota Access oil pipeline. South Dakota Highway Patrol troopers racked up 8,800 hours during the protests. Spokesman Tony Mangan tells the Argus Leader that the agency has been reimbursed $518,000 for hours and mileage.
 
     American Indian tribes and environmental groups protested the pipeline because they fear environmental harm, a claim Texas-based pipeline developer Energy Transfer Partners rejects. There were 761 arrests in North Dakota between August and February.
 
     The $3.8 billion pipeline began moving North Dakota oil to a distribution point in Illinois last month.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's offer to sell its current governor's mansion has been a bust. Capitol Facilities Manager John Boyle says no proposals were received on the 10,000-square-foot prairie-style house by the Wednesday night deadline. He says it will be demolished next month.
 
     The mansion has served North Dakota's first families for 57 years. The state wanted to preserve it while making way for a larger $5 million mansion. A local home mover has said moving such a house could cost at least $250,000. Boyle says the new 13,500-square-foot mansion will be completed by the time the old home meets the wrecking ball.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - More than 2,800 doe licenses remain after North Dakota's deer gun license lottery. The state Game and Fish Department says resident applicants who were unsuccessful in the first lottery can apply for remaining licenses. Online applications can be made starting Tuesday. Paper applications for remaining licenses will be mailed to hunters next week. The deadline for applying is August 30. The first lottery application process had more than 107,000 applicants, and about 53,000 were unsuccessful. Results are available on the Game and Fish website.
