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) - Nearly 100 groups and businesses in North Dakota have shown interest in either producing or dispensing medical marijuana. That pleases state officials who are establishing a network for making the drug available to qualified patients by next summer.
 
     The Health Department in June asked those interested in being a part of the system to notify the agency by the end of the month so it could gauge interest. The request drew 97 nonbinding letters of intent. Medical Marijuana Division Director Kenan Bullinger says that exceeded expectations.
 
     North Dakota voters last November approved medical marijuana, and the Legislature earlier this year crafted regulations. The Health Department is finishing the process of drafting administrative rules, and then it will start accepting formal applications from potential processors and distributers.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The wife of a former Standing Rock Sioux tribal leader convicted of sexually abusing a girl has agreed to plead guilty to failing to report the abuse. The Bismarck Tribune reports that Rhonda Krein Fool Bear signed a plea deal with federal prosecutors today in which she admitted not alerting law enforcement. In exchange, prosecutors have agreed to drop a charge alleging that she lied at the trial of Robert Fool Bear Sr. Krein Fool Bear's attorney declined to comment on the case. Robert Fool Bear was convicted in April. He faces a minimum of 30 years in prison when he's sentenced August 23rd.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Registered nurses at CHI St. Alexius Health in Bismarck have filed for a vote on whether to unionize. The Bismarck Tribune reports that the nurses' request to vote on whether to be represented by the Minnesota Nurses Association will be reviewed by the National Labor Relations Board. The NLRB requires at least 30 percent of the registered nurses to request a vote.
 
     The nurses maintain that operational changes and declining care standards are harming patient care and the hospital's reputation. The hospital has laid off about 120 employees over the last 1 1/2 years but maintains its quality of care hasn't suffered.
 
     The Minnesota Nurses Association represents nearly 22,000 nurses in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Iowa.

     GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - A Grand Forks man accused of shooting another man at a convenience store has been charged with attempted murder and reckless endangerment in the incident authorities say stemmed from a case of road rage.
 
     WDAZ-TV reports that 24-year-old Jody Bergland Jr. maintains he pulled the trigger to defend himself from an angry driver with a knife. Police allege Bergland shot a man Monday afternoon and then fled. Officers caught up with him a short time later and arrested him. The man who was shot was taken to a hospital with a shoulder injury not believed to be life-threatening.
 
     Bergland made his initial court appearance today but didn't immediately enter a plea. Court documents don't list an attorney for him. He could face up to 25 years in prison if convicted.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Police arrested a 23-year-old man after a nearly five-hour standoff in Fargo. Officers were called to a residence on a report of an assault Tuesday afternoon. Authorities say when police arrived a female victim jumped out of a window and told officers the man still inside had warrants for his arrest. The female was treated for injuries at a hospital.
 
     Police entered the house and found a second female who was taken out of the residence. Officers then heard what they believed was a gunshot, backed out of the house and called for assistance from tactical officers. The suspect surrendered to police about 7 p.m. Police searched the house but say they didn't find a gun.
