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.

President Donald Trump is planning a trip to North Dakota tomorrow to talk about tax reform....

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - President Donald Trump is planning a trip to North Dakota tomorrow to talk about tax reform. The President is scheduled to fly into the Bismarck airport Wednesday afternoon and then make some remarks at the Tesoro Refinery in Mandan.
 
    Trump is calling the U.S. tax code "self-destructive" and says he'll work with Congress on a plan to simplify it and "dramatically" reduce income taxes for Americans. In a Labor Day op-ed submitted to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Trump outlined his goals for a new U.S. tax plan.
 
     Trump writes: "Our plan will dramatically reduce income taxes for American workers and families. It will nearly double the standard deduction to help families get ahead. It will make our complex tax code more simple and fair. It will put money back into the pockets of the people who earned it."
 
     Congress is expected to take up the issue when it returns from its August recess this week.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - West Fargo police say officers seized more than $700,000 worth of marijuana from a vehicle during a traffic stop. Police say officers found the marijuana Sunday after a drug-sniffing dog looked around the vehicle during the stop on Interstate 94. WDAY-TV reports the drug bust is the largest in the police department's history.

    BISMARCK, N.D. - The North Dakota National Guard, in partnership with the Bismarck-Mandan Chamber of Commerce, will host the annual "Brats with the Brave" military appreciation picnic from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. today at the Raymond J. Bohn Armory in Bismarck. The event also will feature an open house at the Guard's Military Service Center, which is located in the armory. This event is free and open to the public.

    The Military Service Center concept in North Dakota was launched in January 2009 in Bismarck. The center's success prompted a second center to open in Fargo, both of which are staffed by military and civilian employees of the North Dakota National Guard.

    Military Service Centers bring together professionals, resources and services to aid those who have served their country. These specialists include chaplains, licensed social workers, a military family life counselor, a suicide prevention team, sexual assault response coordinator, transition assistance advisor and a family readiness team. Staff also is available to assist with providing identification cards and enrollment in the Defense Eligibility Enrollment Reporting System (DEERS), as well as to advise on the many resources available through Military OneSource.
