TODAY'S THOUGHT

I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought, and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.

Residents and law enforcement on the Fort Berthold Reservation are searching for a woman missing more than a week.....

     NEW TOWN, N.D. (AP) - Residents and law enforcement on the Fort Berthold Reservation are searching for a woman missing more than a week. Authorities say 32-year-old Olivia Lone Bear was last seen the evening of October 24th leaving a New Town restaurant. Her father, Texx Lone Bear, tells The Bismarck Tribune that the mother of five children left her wallet and ID behind.
 
     Ground and air searches on the reservation Wednesday and Thursday yielded no clues. Another search is being organized for the weekend. Three Affiliated Tribes Police Detective Sam Lincoln says the search for now is focused on the reservation. But he says authorities are pursuing leads that Lone Bear might be out of state with another person. It wasn't immediately clear if police think Lone Bear might be the victim of a crime.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Police in Bismarck aren't releasing the name of an officer involved in a shooting - in part because the officer is invoking a new law that expands the rights of crime victims. The officer was attacked after responding to a call at a Bismarck motel on October 15th. Police say he was punched in the head and had his eyes gouged before he shot and wounded his attacker.
 
     Chief Dan Donlin tells The Associated Press the officer invoked Marsy's Law, approved by voters just last year. Donlin says names are typically released after shootings are reviewed by the state - but he's not sure that will happen now.
 
     Jack McDonald, an attorney who frequently represents North Dakota media outlets, said withholding the officer's name is a "perversion" of the law.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The builder of the Dakota Access oil pipeline and the federal agency that permitted the project are objecting to an effort by American Indian tribes to bolster protections for their water supply.
 
     Lawyers for Texas-based Energy Transfer Partners and the Army Corps of Engineers argue separately in court documents that the proposals by the Standing Rock Sioux and Cheyenne River Sioux are unnecessary or unwarranted.
 
     The dispute centers around the $3.8 billion pipeline's crossing of the Missouri River's Lake Oahe reservoir in southern North Dakota. Both tribes get water from the lake and fear contamination should the pipeline leak. They want more protections while the Corps completes further review that the court ordered on the pipeline's impact on tribal interests.
 
     U.S. District Judge James Boasberg will decide later whether to grant the tribes' request.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Several homeless men have been forced back onto the streets after the recent closing of the only emergency men's shelter in Bismarck-Mandan. The Bismarck Tribune reports that with snow expected this week, the closure of the Ruth Meiers Hospitality House has men desperately looking for another place to stay. The facility opened in response to those in need of emergency shelter in 1987.
 
     Terry Pierson, a former shelter resident, says he's temporarily staying with a friend at the emergency shelter's apartments. Tenants can occupy the apartments until Nov. 17.
 
     Jena Gullo is the executive director for Missouri Slope Areawide United Way, a nonprofit. She says the nonprofit received a donation that allowed the agency to help some of the shelter's former tenants get hotel rooms. Gullo says the nonprofit has limited funds for the temporary crisis plan.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota and South Dakota are celebrating today. Today is the birthday for both Dakotas. President Benjamin Harrison signed papers admitting North Dakota and South Dakota as the 39th and 40th states in the union on Nov. 2, 1889. Legend says Harrison shuffled the statehood papers before signing them. The two states are now 128 years old. They initially were part of the Dakota Territory created in 1861, which also included much of the present-day states of Montana and Wyoming.
