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.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem says more than 248,000 of the state's residents may have had their personal information exposed in a nationwide data breach of credit reporting company Equifax.
 
     Stenehjem's office said today that Equifax provided the number of North Dakotans who are potentially exposed to the data breach. The information includes Social Security numbers, birthdates, addresses and possibly driver's license and credit card information.
 
     Atlanta-based Equifax says 143 million Americans had their information exposed. Equifax has a website, www.equifaxsecurity2017.com, where people can check if their information may have been stolen.
 
     Stenehjem says people should also file a fraud alert on their credit reports. Information on how to file a fraud alert can be found on the attorney general's website, at https://attorneygeneral.nd.gov/

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Nearly 2,000 people have signed an online petition to tear down the apartment building that was home to a pregnant woman kidnapped and later found slain. But those who live in the building say tearing it down won't erase the crime. Christopher Miranda tells KVRR the effort would be better focused on putting up a memorial for Savanna Greywind. Balloons, flowers and other items have been placed near the steps of the building in memory of Greywind.
 
     Two people who lived in the building are charged with conspiracy to commit murder and kidnapping. Greywind's body was found in the Red River. Police believe Greywind was killed for her unborn child, who survived. Greywind's boyfriend, Ashton Matheny, says he is the baby's father and has been caring for her.

    FARGO, ND - United Blood Services, as part of the Blood Systems nationwide network of blood centers, sent platelets this past weekend to Florida to help with local patient blood needs. The majority of blood centers in Florida, and parts of the southeast, are closed and unable to collect blood as a result of Hurricane Irma's devastation. Until those local blood centers are fully operational, we stand ready to send more blood when requested.

    United Blood Services needs the community's help to ensure a safe and adequate supply not only for our community but for the communities impacted by this massive storm.

    Type O blood donations are the most needed at this time, especially type O-negative, however all blood types are welcome. Blood centers across the country are working together in this effort. United Blood Services urges both existing and first-time donors to make and keep appointments over the next several days and in the coming weeks. Visit www.bloodhero.com or call (877)827-4376 to schedule an appointment at one of our donor centers or at a mobile blood drive. Walk-ins are welcome at any of our locations.

    Individuals who are as young as 16 years of age (with parental consent), weigh at least 110 pounds and are in general good health may be eligible to donate blood.

    As part of Blood Systems Blood Services Division, United Blood Services is included in a multi-state system of blood centers. This network works in tandem, moving lifesaving donations throughout the system to help ensure blood is available when and where it's needed most.

    MINOT, N.D. - More than 600 Xcel Energy employees, retirees, family and friends fanned out this past weekend over three states to volunteer their time and give back to our communities during Xcel Energy's sixth annual Day of Service.

It's rewarding to see so many employees give their time and effort to such important groups in North Dakota."
