TODAY'S THOUGHT

We can always find something to be thankful for, and there may be reasons why we ought to be thankful for even those dispensations which appear dark and frowning.

     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - A Dunseith man was taken to a hospital after an armed standoff in a highway ditch in the Minot area that lasted 3 1/2 hours. The Ward County Sheriff's Office says officers responded to a report of a man walking in a ditch along the Highway 83 bypass at the Highway 2 & 52 bypass and yelling at people about 8:15 p.m. Monday.
 
     Authorities say that as officers approached, the man brandished a handgun and threatened to shoot himself. Officers closed the area to traffic, and SWAT team negotiators talked with the man until he surrendered without incident about 11:45 p.m. and was hospitalized. No one was hurt. The sheriff's office says there are no charges pending.

     GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - A 3 1/2-hour standoff between police and an armed man in a Grand Forks apartment ended with the man apparently killing himself. Officers including a SWAT team responded to the scene about 7:30 p.m. Monday, after a report of a suicidal man with a rifle. The apartment complex was evacuated. Police say attempts to communicate with the man were unsuccessful, and a flash bang deployed outside of the building also generated no response. Officers then sent a robot into the building and discovered the man dead. He was not immediately identified.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota regulators have granted a request by the developer of the Dakota Access pipeline to postpone a public hearing on whether the company violated state rules - but not without dissent.

    The Public Service Commission is looking into whether Energy Transfer Partners removed too many trees and improperly handled some soil during construction of the $3.8 billion pipeline to move North Dakota oil east. Thursday's hearing was to provide information for the commission to decide whether to pursue the case and possibly fine the Texas-based company.

    ETP on Monday asked for a delay to give attorneys on both sides more time to discuss a resolution.

    The commission today voted 2-1 to approve. Commissioner Julie Fedorchak dissented, saying she thinks a delay is unwarranted because a hearing wouldn't stop attorneys from talking.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Fargo police are searching for two suspects in an early morning armed robbery at a convenience store. Officers responded to the Casey's General Store about 4 a.m. today. Authorities say an undisclosed amount of cash was taken in the robbery. No one was hurt.

     DEVILS LAKE, N.D. (AP) - Police in Devils Lake say an elderly woman has lost $8,000 in the so-called "grandparents scam." Authorities say the 84-year-old woman got a call from someone claiming that her granddaughter had been in a crash in Ohio and that drugs were found in her car. KFGO reports the victim was told to purchase gift cards and send them in overnight mail concealed in a magazine.
 
     After sending the cards, police say the woman was asked to send another $9,000 to pay for a lawyer for her granddaughter. Officials say employees at Walmart, where the woman made the transaction, became suspicious and stopped the payment.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A Fargo family has disowned an adult son who attended a gathering of white supremacists that turned violent over the weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia.
 
     Pearce Tefft says in a letter to The Forum of Fargo that he and his family "loudly repudiate" the "vile, hateful and racist rhetoric and actions" of his 30-year-old son, Peter Tefft. He says his son isn't welcome at family gatherings until he renounces his "hateful beliefs."
 
     The son, Peter Tefft, told KVLY-TV in Fargo on Monday that he didn't want to say much about his family's denunciation. While he denied his father's account about him once joking about fascists throwing people into ovens, he acknowledged that he did make a joke about ovens. He called it "a way to get under people's skin."
