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) - Drought has eased over the past week in North Dakota but still blankets the western part of the state. The latest U.S. Drought Monitor map shows 63 percent of the state in some form of drought, down from 82 percent last week.
 
     Areas of extreme or exceptional drought, the two worst categories, have declined from 44 percent to 22 percent. The only part of North Dakota in exceptional drought is now a small area in the northwestern corner.
 
     The Drought Monitor says precipitation was above normal for much of the Dakotas over the week, but significant long-term dryness still exists. Some ranchers in North Dakota are being forced to drill new water wells, with their existing wells drying up.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum is pushing for a comprehensive study of cloud seeding over complaints from farmers and ranchers that the practice may be making drought conditions worse.
 
     The Bismarck Tribune reports that Burgum told a meeting of the state Water Commission that a lot of people think the commission is using old and insufficient data to support the program. One of those studies was conducted between 1969 and 1972.
 
     Six counties and a portion of a seventh participate in the state's weather modification program, which seeds clouds with silver iodide to suppress hail and increase rainfall.
 
     The budget for the cloud seeding program is about $1 million for 2017, with one-third coming from the state and two-thirds from participating counties. The commission took no action on Burgum's request.

     PARSHALL, N.D. (AP) - Voters have narrowly rejected spending $5.4 million on a new school on the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation. The bond referendum in the Parshall School District received 55 percent approval in Tuesday's election, but it needed 60 percent to pass.
 
     The school district wanted to replace its elementary and high school buildings with a new K-12 school. The existing schools were built in the 1960s and have structural and asbestos issues. The Three Affiliated Tribes had approved $9 million for the project contingent on the bond issue passing.

Ground, air and river searches in the Fargo and Grand Forks areas so far have proved unsuccessful. The Greywind family is offering a $7,000 reward for information that leads to solving the case. Family and friends gathered Wednesday in downtown Fargo for a vigil and prayer service.
