TODAY'S THOUGHT

The Christmas message is that there is hope for a ruined humanity–hope of pardon, hope of peace with God, hope of glory–because at the Father's will Jesus became poor, and was born in a stable so that thirty years later He might hang on a cross.

- J.I. Packer

     WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - A collision in the North Dakota oil patch involving a semitrailer and a sport utility vehicle has killed an 83-year-old Williston man.

     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - The Minot Public School District is in the midst of settlement talks with a company that's suing the district for $1.9 million in unpaid cleanup expenses resulting from the 2011 Souris River flood. The Minot Daily News reports that settlement discussions with ServPro were held Friday and the School Board was to meet in a closed executive session today.
 
     The district hired the company to clean up flood-damaged schools. The Federal Emergency Management Agency reimbursed all but $1.9 million of the expense. Minot Public Schools contends Servpro's owner told the district it wouldn't charge anything over and above what FEMA paid. ServPro disputes that.
 
     U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland ruled last month that the contract had been breached, but he didn't rule on resulting damages.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Drought continues to ease in the Dakotas, though nearly two-thirds of each state remains mired in some form of drought. The latest U.S. Drought Monitor shows 58 percent of South Dakota and 60 percent of North Dakota in some stage of drought. Both percentages are down only slightly from the previous week. However, the Drought Monitor says recent rains led to improvements across North Dakota and in eastern South Dakota over the week.
 
     There are no longer any areas in North Dakota in exceptional drought, the worst category, and only 2 percent of the state in extreme drought. About 6 percent of South Dakota is in the extreme category. About 18 percent of North Dakota and 26 percent of South Dakota is listed in severe drought.

     SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Motorists are more likely to crash into a deer in the Dakotas than in most other states. State Farm has released its annual ranking of states in terms of the likelihood of deer-vehicle collisions. The insurer uses claims data and state licensed driver counts from the Federal Highway Administration. South Dakota ranks sixth in the nation and North Dakota is 10th.

    West Virginia tops the list for the 11th year in a row.

    North Dakota's Game and Fish Department says this is the time of year when young deer are dispersing from their home ranges. October through early December is the peak period for deer-vehicle accidents. Most such crashes happen around dawn and dusk, when deer are most often moving around. Motorists are advised to slow down and use caution.
