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.

Minot police are looking for a man believed to have been involved in a shooting this morning....

    MINOT, ND - Minot police are looking for a man believed to have been involved in a shooting this morning.  Officers responded to a shooting on Eisenhower Drive in Dakota Park South this morning at 5:56 AM. A 21-year old woman was shot and was transported to the hospital for treatment. Police located the vehicle driven by the suspect and evacuated an apartment in southwest Minot.

    Officers are asking the public to be aware of the suspect, 19-year old Noah Figliolino, in the event he is not in the apartment. They don't believe there is a direct threat to residents, but say Figliolino may be armed.

    Anyone who sees him, or has information, is asked to call 9-1-1 immediately and notify police of his location. DO NOT attempt to take any action.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Native American music and prayers filled the Bismarck Capitol Mall where hundreds of people gathered to honor homicide victim Savanna LaFontaine-Greywind. The Bismarck Tribune says many in the crowd Wednesday evening wore red to honor indigenous women who are missing and murdered.
 
     LaFontaine-Greywind was eight months pregnant when she disappeared Aug. 19. Her body was found in the Red River eight days later. Police found a newborn believed to be LaFontaine-Greywind's baby at a neighbor's upstairs apartment in Fargo. The couple who live in that apartment have been arrested and charged.
 
     Communities across North Dakota are holding vigils for LaFontaine-Greywind, a member of the Spirit Lake Dakota tribe. Another gathering is scheduled for 2 p.m. today in New Town. A vigil is also planned for noon on Friday at the tribal office in Fort Yates.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Registered nurses at CHI St. Alexius Health in Bismarck have voted not to unionize. The Bismarck Tribune reports that nurses voted this week on being represented by the Minnesota Nurses Association, and decided against it in a close vote. The association didn't release numbers.
 
     Nurses have maintained that operational changes and declining care standards are harming patient care and the hospital's reputation. The hospital has laid off about 120 employees over the last year and a half but maintains its quality of care hasn't suffered.
 
     The Minnesota Nurses Association represents nearly 22,000 nurses in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Iowa.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's Game and Fish Department says 522 swan hunting licenses remain after this year's license lottery. Only hunters who don't have a swan license for the 2017 season can apply, as regulations limit hunters to one license per year. A total of 2,700 licenses were made available this year. The remaining licenses will be issued on a first-come, first-served basis beginning Sept. 6. The statewide tundra swan hunting season starts Sept. 30 and runs through the end of the year.
