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 65-year-old Ohio man who fled to Thailand after he was accused of sexually abusing an 8-year-old boy in Minot has been sentenced to 12 years in prison....

     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - A 65-year-old Ohio man who fled to Thailand after he was accused of sexually abusing an 8-year-old boy in Minot has been sentenced to 12 years in prison. The Daily News reports that Judge Stacy Louser rejected a joint sentencing recommendation that would have called for Mark Rogers to serve three years in prison. Louser said she couldn't accept that recommendation "in the interests of justice."
 
     Rogers, of Elyria, Ohio, had to be extradited to the United States from Thailand after he was charged in 2014. He pleaded guilty in March to gross sexual imposition. Authorities say one of Rogers' neighbors asked him to babysit the boy a few days a week. Rogers was allegedly naked in the boy's presence and tried to get the 8-year-old to sleep with him.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A Bismarck man has undergone surgery to remove pellets from a BB gun inflicted by an unknown shooter. Police say the 30-year-old man had dropped off a friend Monday night when an unknown man walked up to him and shot him with the BB gun. The Bismarck Tribune says the shooter was with a woman in a silver sedan with Colorado license plates. Sgt. Mark Buschena says the victim had 10 visible wounds from the pellets.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A Fargo man who pleaded guilty to felony terrorizing will have a chance to keep his clean record. A district judge has given 54-year-old James Motl to a 3-year deferred sentence for pointing a pistol at his former son-in-law and threatening to kill him. Defense attorney Lloyd Suhr argued Motl's actions were impulsive, but he had not been in trouble before.
 
     Police say Motl threatened his former son-in-law following a burglary at his daughter's house. The Bismarck Tribune says Judge Bruce Haskell told Motl he should have called police about the burglary instead of grabbing his gun.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A community food cooperative in Bismarck is struggling through some bad financial times. The Bisman Community Food Co-op was opened with the premise of giving shoppers a place to buy healthy, locally grown foods. But The Bismarck Tribune reports that the co-op is more than 90 days delinquent on more than $70,000 worth of bills.
 
     In total, the co-op owes vendors more than $236,000, with more than $42,000 of that owed to local producers. Grower Brian McGinness says it's "financially devastating." The co-op had $343 in its checking account on Oct. 16. Its board attributes the problems to mismanagement. Carmen Hoffner took over as general manager this month. She says she's cutting costs and setting up payment plans.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Drought-stricken North Dakota ranchers are being given more time to apply for state aid to help them pay the cost of hauling in hay to maintain their herds through the winter. The state Agriculture Department is extending the application deadline for the hay-hauling aid program from Nov. 3 to Nov. 13.
 
     Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring says the program also will now reimburse eligible ranchers for hay transportation expenses incurred between June 1 and Nov. 6.
 
     The state Emergency Commission in late August approved $1.5 million for the program, in response to the worst drought in decades over the summer. Alfalfa hay production in North Dakota is down 30 percent from last year, and production of all other hay is down 43 percent.
