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.

Authorities say a Bismarck oral surgeon who was temporarily suspended from practicing medicine has died from a suspected drug overdose...

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Authorities say a Bismarck oral surgeon who was temporarily suspended from practicing medicine has died from a suspected drug overdose. The Bismarck Tribune reports that first responders attempted to revive Dr. Mansureh Iravani with Narcan, a drug meant to reverse the effects of opioid overdose. She was pronounced dead Monday night at a local hospital. Police released her name today. Investigators say fentanyl, a powerful synthetic opioid, was found inside Iravani's residence.
 
     State regulators suspended the 50-year-old Iravani in March after complaints she pulled the wrong teeth, started procedures without enough sedation and yanked surgical stitches from a patient's mouth.
 
     Iravani said after the suspension was announced that the allegations were mostly false and she planned to come back and "be a good oral surgeon in this community."

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A federal judge says drilling can temporarily resume at an oil site near a popular boat ramp at a North Dakota resort. The Three Affiliated Tribes had asked the federal government to halt drilling near at a ramp at the Van Hook Resort in New Town.  The tribe says the site should be farther away from Lake Sakakawea under tribal policy. The drilling site is only about 800 feet from the lake.
 
     The government initially agreed and ordered Slawson Exploration to halt its operations. But the company challenged the order in U.S. District Court and requested that work be allowed to continue while its appeal is considered. The Bismarck Tribune reports a judge granted the request Tuesday. The ruling will be in effect until an August 29th hearing.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Authorities have caught another suspect in a Jamaican lottery scam that bilked mostly elderly Americans out of millions of dollars. Akil Gray is among 15 suspects charged in U.S. District Court in North Dakota with conspiracy, fraud and money laundering. Prosecutors say he was recently apprehended in Jamaica after being on the run more than a year.
 
     Authorities say at least 90 people lost a total of more than $5.7 million to the scam, including a North Dakota woman who lost her life savings.
 
     The man who authorities say masterminded the scheme pleaded guilty to conspiracy last month. Another suspect is scheduled to plead guilty in October.
 
     Nine suspects who have pleaded not guilty are awaiting trial. Another suspect is still in Jamaica awaiting extradition, and two others remain fugitives.

East Grand Forks police say two people in the neighboring cities were recently hospitalized for possible overdoses after using what they thought was meth.
