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.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - All of the 13 suspects arrested in what authorities believe is the first large-scale Jamaican lottery scam to be prosecuted in the U.S. have now entered pleas in federal court.
 
     Two suspects who had been awaiting extradition in Jamaica were brought to the U.S. earlier this month and entered not guilty pleas in North Dakota, where the case began more than five years ago.
 
     A judge is deciding whether to add them to a list of suspects scheduled for trial in January. That list has been shrinking, as five of the 15 defendants in the case have reached deals with prosecutors to plead guilty. Two suspects remain fugitives.
 
     Authorities allege the scam bilked at least 90 mostly elderly Americans out of more than $5.7 million.

     WASHBURN, N.D. (AP) - The president of the Washburn City Commission is denying any wrongdoing as a group of residents seeks to remove him from office. Concerned Citizens for the Recall of Washburn President Larry Thomas says it has enough petition signatures to move forward with a recall vote. The group cites alleged disregard for transparency and employee harassment as reasons. Thomas calls the allegations "totally fabricated." He says the group "should be embarrassed." The Bismarck Tribune reports that the group has until Nov. 6 to file the petition.

    DETROIT (AP) - Fiat Chrysler is recalling almost half a million Ram heavy-duty pickups and medium-duty trucks because their water pumps could be defective. The recall involves Ram 2500 and 3500 pickups and Ram 3500, 4500 and 5500 chassis cabs from the 2013 to 2017 model years. All 494,417 of the vehicles involved have 6.7-liter engines. Most of the trucks were sold in the U.S., but 46,220 are in Canada and 4,485 are in other markets.
 
     Fiat Chrysler says a water pump bearing can overheat under certain conditions, potentially leading to an engine fire. The company isn't aware of any injuries or accidents related to the defect. It no longer uses the type of water pump involved in the recall. Fiat Chrysler will notify customers and dealers will fix or replace the water pumps for free.

     DICKINSON, N.D. (AP) - High school students in the western part of North Dakota are raising money to help their "sister city" in Texas damaged by Hurricane Harvey. The Bismarck Tribune reports that Dickinson National Honor Society students have collected $3,500 this month by selling T-shirts to assist Texas' Dickinson Independent School District.
 
     The T-shirts that say "Support our sister city" display North Dakota and Texas overlapping with both Dickinson cities marked. The North Dakota students are selling the shirts for $15 until Sept. 21.
 
     Kathleen Baldwin-Bruysschaard is Texas' Dickinson High School National Honor Society adviser. She says she was moved when she was informed about the initiative. North Dakota Dickinson Public Schools officials say they're proud of their honor society students.
