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.

Officials at United Blood Services say Hurricane Harvey has triggered the need for more donors....

    MINOT, ND - Officials at United Blood Services say Hurricane Harvey has triggered the need for more donors. Earlier this week, 197 units of red blood cells were sent to the Texas region.

    United Blood Services is now working on collecting at least five additional units of platelets above their normal goal each day in order to send those units to regions affected by the hurricane. They currently are planning on providing these additional units daily through next Monday, September 4th, unless the increased need due to the hurricane continues.

    Officials say platelets only have a shelf life of five days, but they are extremely important for patients fighting cancer and with clotting disorders. About 30 percent of the local blood supply goes to this region's cancer patients.

     GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - Grand Forks police are warning people about a potentially dangerous substance after responding to four drug overdoses in the last week. Police say the overdoses involved a form of a white powder users thought was heroin, but likely laced with fentanyl, a powerful synthetic opioid. Fentanyl is considered to be 50 times more potent than street heroin and death can occur through skin contact or inhalation.

    None of the overdoses was fatal, but required life saving measures and medical attention. Police believe there have been additional overdoses that have not been reported. North Dakota has a law that protects people from prosecution if they seek medical assistance for someone who is overdosing on drugs.

Saltwater is an unwanted byproduct of oil production and is considered an environmental hazard by the state. A state inspector has been sent to the site and will monitor additional cleanup.

     BROOKINGS, S.D. (AP) - Xcel Energy and Otter Tail Power say they've completed a 70-mile power line in South Dakota that's the last piece of a major expansion of the upper Midwest power grid called CapX2020.
 
     The new 345-kilovolt line connects a new substation near Big Stone City with an existing substation in Brookings in eastern South Dakota. In the announcement Wednesday, the Minnesota-based utilities say eight wind projects and a natural gas power plant are waiting to connect to the line.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota wildlife officials are reducing the number of bighorn sheep hunting licenses available this year as they continue to see the effects of disease on the western herd. The Game and Fish Department is making five of the once-in-a-lifetime licenses available, three fewer than last year. Bighorn hunting is big in North Dakota. More than 13,200 hunters have applied for a license this year.
