TODAY'S THOUGHT

I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought, and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.

     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - A federal agency is suing a Minot health-care provider for allegedly firing a pregnant employee instead of accommodating her pregnancy. The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission filed a lawsuit Monday against Trinity Health.
 
     EEOC district Director Julianne Bowman says an investigation found that Trinity Health fired the employee once it learned of her pregnancy and her pregnancy-related disabilities. The agency alleges that when the woman requested light-duty work because of her restricted ability to lift, the health-care provider did not give her light-duty tasks available to employees injured on the job, and did not provide her with leave as required by law.
 
     A Trinity Health spokeswoman says the health-care system does not comment on pending litigation. Trinity Health operates in northwestern and central North Dakota and eastern Montana.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - The chancellor of the North Dakota University System is asking for the state to investigate what he calls attempts by people to manipulate his office into influencing the 2016 primary election for governor.
 
     Chancellor Mark Hagerott told KFGO radio earlier this week that he received multiple phone calls to disavow or fire former Gov. Ed Schafer after Schafer endorsed former computer software executive Doug Burgum over state Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem. Schafer was interim president of the University of North Dakota.
 
     Hagerott on Monday requested a special assistant attorney general to look into his complaints. Attorney general spokeswoman Liz Brocker said lawyers are reviewing the request. Hagerott declined to say who pressured him about Schafer's endorsement.
 
     Burgum easily won the primary and the general election.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota Secretary of State Al Jaeger is acknowledging that the state's election systems were targeted by hackers last year, but giving few details.
 
     Jaeger says the state was notified Friday by the Department of Homeland Security that North Dakota was among 21 states targeted last summer. Jaeger says the state's systems were not breached. He says the state continually updates its cybersecurity protections as new ways of targeting are identified. Jaeger said Monday he couldn't comment on the kind of attack or which specific systems were targeted, because of security and confidentiality reasons.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - State driver's license offices across North Dakota will be closed much of this week for employee annual training.

The site at 608 East Boulevard Ave. in Bismarck will be open today from 7:30-11:45 a.m. All sites will resume normal business hours on Friday. The shutdown does not affect state motor vehicle offices.
