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. - Gov. Doug Burgum today applauded the upcoming presidential nomination of Minot native Daniel Gade to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. President Donald Trump on Monday announced his intent to nominate Gade to the EEOC as one of several nominations to key positions in his administration. The nomination is for the remainder of a five-year term expiring July 1, 2021.

    Born and raised in North Dakota, Gade graduated from Minot High School in 1993 and from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, N.Y., in 1997. He was wounded in action twice and decorated for valor while serving in Iraq, losing his right leg after an improvised explosive device detonated near his vehicle. Gade served in the administration of President George W. Bush, where his portfolio included military health care, veterans and U.S. disability policy. In 2011, he returned to West Point, where he taught political science and leadership courses until retiring from the Army this year. He was appointed to the National Council on Disability in 2015.

    "Lt. Col. Daniel Gade's exemplary service to his country is an inspiration for all North Dakotans, and we are thrilled with his upcoming nomination to the EEOC," Burgum said. "Ensuring equal treatment of job applicants and employees is key to building a strong workforce to meet the needs of a 21st century economy."

    Gade has a master's degree and a Ph.D. in public administration and policy from the University of Georgia.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A lawmaker says some sheriffs and county prosecutors are raising questions about a new North Dakota law that allows most adults to carry a hidden firearm without a permit.
 
     The so-called constitutional-carry law took effect Tuesday and allows law-abiding adults to forgo background checks and classes. But Mandan Republican Rep. Todd Porter says some law enforcement and prosecutors want to know if it's legal to have a loaded weapon in a vehicle without a permit. Porter says he thinks it is, but he and other bill sponsors have asked for an attorney general's opinion to be sure. Porter says until the opinion is issued, people should not have firearms loaded in their vehicles.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota hospitals must now alert patients in non-emergencies whether air ambulances are covered under the patient's insurance. The new legislation took effect Tuesday.
 
     North Dakota Insurance Commissioner Jon Godfread says the legislation was spurred by patients increasingly hit with unexpected sky-high bills that could force some into "financial ruin. From 2013 to July 2016, the state Insurance Department has received 32 complaints from patients totaling $1.7 million for air ambulance services within the state. That's an average of more than $55,000.
 
     Godfread says air ambulances provide valuable life-saving services in North Dakota but they have been "over-utilized" in recent years for non-emergency situations.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A female sergeant who was fired from the Bismarck police force is accusing the department of discriminating against women. Police say 37-year-old Robyn Krile was fired from her post in March as the result of an independent letter from a local prosecutor challenging her credibility as a witness.
 
     But Krile tells the Bismarck Tribune that her termination felt like a final blow after years of perceived discrimination based on her gender, which she disputed in a complaint filed with the state department of labor in January. Krile says she's fighting to take back her career and even the playing field for women.
 
     Police Chief Dan Donlin says Krile's termination had nothing to do with the January complaint she filed.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Air National Guard has received its first new plane in more than 60 years - and it's unmanned. The MQ-9 Reaper drone was unveiled Tuesday in a ceremony at the 119th Wing in Fargo. KFGO radio reports that it's the first new aircraft flown by the unit since the base received T-33 trainers in the 1950s. The Reaper is an armed, remotely-piloted aircraft that also conducts surveillance and search and rescue missions.
 
     Col. Britt Hatley, the base commander, says the first flights over the Fargo area should take place later this month. The plane will eventually be flown to Camp Grafton in northeastern North Dakota, where airspace has been marked for training.

    MINOT, N.D. (AP) - Attendance at this year's North Dakota State Fair fell just shy of the 300,000 mark, but was still up 2 percent from last year. Figures released by the fair show 299,077 people attended over the event's nine-day run that ended Saturday, up from 293,123 last year. The fair reached a peak attendance of 320,485 in 2013.
 
     Headline performers at this year's fair included Little Big Town, Jason Aldean, Thomas Rhett, Fergie and Paramore. The fair also had its usual rodeo events, animal and car shows, carnival rides, food vendors and 4-H and FFA exhibits.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Time is running out to apply for a North Dakota pronghorn license. The Game and Fish Department is reminding hunters that today is the deadline for the 2017 season. Only North Dakota residents can apply. A total of 410 licenses are available in five open units. Two units are closed this year due to a decline in the pronghorn population.
 
     Hunting of the animals that resemble the African antelope is popular in North Dakota, with thousands of hunters applying for the limited licenses that are doled out through a lottery process. This year's bow season is Sept. 1-24. The gun season is Oct. 6-22. Both seasons start at noon the first day.
