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.

A task force made up of representatives from Minnesota and North Dakota has met to talk about the stalled Red River diversion project...

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A task force made up of representatives from Minnesota and North Dakota has met to talk about the stalled Red River diversion project around the flood-prone Fargo-Moorhead area. The 16-member group organized by North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum and Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton includes elected representatives from both states and residents who live upstream and downstream from Fargo.
 
     Upstream residents are suing over the project because they believe there is a better plan that won't flood private land. A federal judge last month halted construction because the project does not have the necessary permits from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.
 
     Burgum says the task force is "a talented group of people who are collaborative thinkers." The group has a December 15 deadline to come up with recommendations.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Census Office says the state has the highest percentage of millennials in the country. Office manager Kevin Iverson says many millennials moved to the state in the early years of the oil boom and have stayed. The number of millennials has increased in Fargo, Bismarck and Grand Forks where unemployment is low.

    Iverson tells KFGO the age of North Dakotans is younger than the national average and has been since 2009. He says another result of a younger demographic is a big increase in the number of children under five, up 24 percent between 2010 and 2012.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of the American Indian is adding some history from the recent protests in North Dakota against the Dakota Access pipeline. The museum is adding a nearly 12-foot-tall mile-marker post created by activists to its exhibit on treaties called "Nation to Nation: Treaties Between the United States and American Indian Nations." The mile-marker post was constructed by protesters to show how far they had traveled.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A proposal by the North Dakota Board of Higher Education that would cut down on the number of face-to-face meetings and take those gatherings off the campuses is being criticized by college professors and others. Board chairman Don Morton, who as leader of the group sets the meeting schedule, is proposing that the board come together four times a year in Bismarck. Other meetings would be held via video network.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Deer and wild turkey hunters can still get a North Dakota license for the upcoming hunting seasons. The state Game and Fish Department says more than 200 doe licenses remain in units 3F1, 3F2 and 4F. They're available to hunters who have not already received a lottery or landowner license, and they're valid only during the regular deer gun season.

    More than 100 fall turkey licenses remain in Unit 25, which includes McHenry County and parts of Pierce and Ward counties. Hunters are allowed a maximum of five turkey licenses for the fall season.

    Resident and out-of-state hunters must apply online at the Game and Fish website.
