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.

      FARGO, N.D. (AP) - The boyfriend of slain Fargo woman Savanna Greywind says DNA tests have confirmed that he and Greywind are the parents of a newborn girl found in the apartment of two people charged in the case. Ashton Matheny tells The Forum newspaper that legal custody of the baby hasn't been awarded, but he believes it will happen soon. He said the baby has been in his care for nearly a week.
 
     Neither Matheny nor a family spokesman responded to messages from The Associated Press. Deputy Police Chief Joseph Anderson says police aren't releasing further information about the case.
 
     Brooke Crews and her boyfriend William Hoehn are charged with conspiracy to commit murder and kidnapping in Greywind's death. Their lawyers have declined comment. Greywind's body was found in the Red River.

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minnesota Department of Commerce says Enbridge Energy has failed to establish the need for its proposal to replace its aging Line 3 crude oil pipeline across northern Minnesota. Instead, the department says it might be better to just shut down the existing line.

    In filings with the Public Utilities Commission Monday, the agency says refineries in the region already have sufficient supplies and little capacity for processing more crude. And it says Minnesota's demand for gasoline appears unlikely to increase over the long term.

    The decision on granting a certificate of need for the project is up to the PUC, which is independent of Gov. Mark Dayton's administration. Dayton praised the work of Commerce Department staffers, but says he'll await more information before expressing personal views on the project.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Pheasant numbers in the Dakotas are down to some of the lowest levels on record. And biologists say the drop is blamed largely on the worst drought to hit the states in decades. North Dakota's roadside pheasant survey conducted in late July and August shows the number of birds is down 61 percent from last year. A similar survey in South Dakota shows a 45 percent drop.

    Biologists say drought reduces the amount of insects available for pheasant chicks to eat and also decreases habitat, leaving young birds more susceptible to predators.

    North Dakota upland game biologist R.J. Gross says hunters typically kill 500,000 pheasants or more in the state in a good year. Gross says he expects fewer than 300,000 birds to be harvested in North Dakota this year.

    JAMESTOWN, N.D. - State Superintendent Kirsten Baesler on Monday announced that Jamestown teacher Heather Tomlin-Rohr had been chosen as a finalist for the 2018 North Dakota Teacher of the Year Award.

    Tomlin-Rohr teaches kindergarten at Louis L'Amour Elementary School in Jamestown. She is a native of Jamestown and alumna of the University of Jamestown, where she earned her bachelor's degree in elementary education in the spring of 2002. She began teaching kindergarten at Louis L'Amour that fall.

    Baesler visited Louis L'Amour on Monday to inform Tomlin-Rohr that she had been selected as one of five finalists for the 2018 award. The superintendent is visiting each finalist in his or her classroom to call attention to their achievement and to celebrate teaching excellence in North Dakota's public schools. Baesler and Gov. Doug Burgum will honor the person chosen as Teacher of the Year on Sept. 28.

    Tomlin-Rohr said that as a child and young adult, her grandmother, who was herself a teacher, had influenced her to consider going into the profession. Her grandmother's stories of her days in the classroom "was very much like listening to someone read an episode of Little House on the Prairie," Tomlin-Rohr said.

    She called public education "one of the most noble institutions in America" and said her philosophy of education was to focus on each student and help each one to realize his or her potential.

    "Nearly every day I spend in the classroom, I find myself reaffirming the fact that every student I serve deserves the very best that I can offer," she said.

    Tomlin-Rohr was also a Teacher of the Year finalist in 2016, when the honor was won by Amy Neal, a kindergarten teacher at Lewis & Clark Elementary School in Minot. Last year's winner was Nancy Dauwen, a mathematics teacher at Sheyenne High School in West Fargo.

    Robert Lech, Jamestown's superintendent of schools, said Tomlin-Rohr is "respected across the district for her commitment to the profession."

    "Due to her commitment, each child in her classroom is loved and provided every opportunity to achieve at his or her maximum capacity," Lech said.
