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.

    MINOT, ND - The City of Minot has signed an agreement to purchase approximately 320 acres of land that will extend the life of the city's landfill by more than 60 years.

    Jason Sorenson, Assistant Public Works Director for the City of Minot, said the land was necessary for future expansion of the City of Minot landfill.

    "We are currently constructing cell six of our originally permitted seven cells, which no longer gives us room to handle composting of yard waste," Sorenson said. "Once the new land is permitted, we'll begin utilizing a small portion to design a new composting area. It will probably be five years or more before we construct our first cell on the new land."

    Sorenson said the City of Minot's sanitation department collects approximately 15,000 tons of municipal solid waste yearly from the residential customers the city serves in Minot. Private haulers collect waste from some residential customers in Minot and all of the commercial waste in the city, which brings in another estimated 15,000 tons yearly. The landfill is also utilized by other area entities in surrounding counties designated as the "regional area."

    "We are a regional landfill and we accept waste from six counties," Sorenson said. "We bring in approximately 80,000 tons of municipal solid waste every year, and over half of that volume is coming from surrounding counties."

    The City of Minot paid $4 million for the additional property.

     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - A federal judge has partially sided with a company suing the Minot Public School District for $1.9 million in unpaid services following the 2011 Souris River flood.

    The Minot Daily News reports that Storm Team Robbins, LLC was hired under the name ServPro of the Seacoast by the district to clean flood damaged schools. The Federal Emergency Management Agency reimbursed most of those expenses. ServPro is suing the district for the remaining expenses. But district officials argue that ServPro's owner told the district it wouldn't be charged over what FEMA paid.

    Judge Daniel Hovland has ruled that there was a breach of contract. He says the lawsuit will be resolved by a jury trial. A trial scheduled for Oct. 10 has been canceled and will be rescheduled at a later date.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A family attorney has identified a teenager from Minnesota who died after being found unresponsive in a North Dakota State University residence hall. Attorney Paul O. Taylor issued a statement Monday identifying the teen as 17-year-old Devin Delaney of Burnsville. Taylor said the family requested privacy.
 
     Campus police were notified about an unresponsive teen at Sevrinson Hall about midday Sunday. The live-saving efforts of emergency medical crews were unsuccessful. The teen was not a student at the Fargo university, which allows guests to stay overnight in dorms.
 
     Burnsville High School declined immediate comment. North Dakota's Bureau of Criminal Investigation also declined comment. NDSU didn't immediately provide additional details about the investigation.
 
     A GoFundMe site established to raise money for funeral expenses raised about $10,600 in its first five hours Monday.
