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.

The suspect in a shooting this morning is in custody....

    MINOT, ND - The suspect in a shooting this morning is in custody.

    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. The suspect, 19-year old Noah Figliolino, remained at-large until until this afternoon.  

    At about 2:00 PM a man called police stating his car had been stolen. The man knows Figliolino and believed he was the one he saw take the vehicle. The information was put out to law enforcement across the state.

    During the course of the investigation an arrest warrant was obtained for Figliolino for Aggravated Assault.

    At approximately 2:30 PM a trooper with the North Dakota Highway Patrol spotted the stolen vehicle traveling westbound on Highway 2 near Berthold. When additional officers made it to the area, a traffic stop was conducted and Noah Figliolino was taken into custody without incident. Figliolino was arrested on the outstanding warrant in reference to the shooting this morning in Minot.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Seven companies with experience in other states have expressed interest in testing medical marijuana in North Dakota. The response pleases state officials who were concerned about how much interest there would be among in-state labs that focus mainly on agricultural and environmental testing.
 
     North Dakota voters approved medical marijuana last year, and the state Health Department is setting up a system for legally getting it to qualified patients.
 
     The agency ultimately will register two centers to make medical marijuana, eight more to dispense it and one lab to test it. The lab will have to set up a facility within North Dakota.
 
     Medical Marijuana Division Director Kenan Bullinger says the drafting of administrative rules is taking longer than expected, but he still anticipates the drug being available sometime next summer.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - There has been little change in drought conditions in the Dakotas over the past week. The latest U.S. Drought Monitor map shows 66 percent of North Dakota in some stage of drought, up slightly from 63 percent last week. Twenty-two percent of the state is in extreme or exceptional drought, unchanged.
 
     In South Dakota, 69 percent of the state is in some stage of drought, down from 72 percent. Forty-three percent of the state is in severe or extreme drought, unchanged.
 
     The Drought Monitor says precipitation was below normal for much of the High Plains over the week. However, eastern South Dakota is an exception and crop conditions there are good.

     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.
