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.

Another defendant in a Jamaican lottery scam authorities say bilked 90 mostly elderly Americans out of $5.7 million has been scheduled for trial....

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Another defendant in a Jamaican lottery scam authorities say bilked 90 mostly elderly Americans out of $5.7 million has been scheduled for trial. Gregory Gooden was arrested in Jamaica in June and pleaded not guilty in federal court in North Dakota Aug. 1. A federal judge on Monday scheduled him for trial in January, joining eight co-defendants previously scheduled.
 
     Fifteen people are charged in the case. The alleged mastermind has pleaded guilty in a deal with prosecutors, and another suspect is scheduled to plead guilty in October. Alrick McLeod will remain jailed until then, because a federal magistrate on Monday denied him a detention hearing. Two other suspects are in Jamaica awaiting extradition, and two others remain fugitives.
 
     The case began when a North Dakota woman lost her life savings in 2011.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - An attorney for Greenpeace says a lawsuit filed against it and other groups by the developer of the Dakota Access pipeline is meritless. Texas-based Energy Transfer Partners alleges the groups' actions opposing the pipeline to move North Dakota oil to Illinois interfered with its business, facilitated crimes and acts of terrorism, incited violence and violated laws. Greenpeace attorney Tom Wetterer says the lawsuit aims to "silence free speech through expensive, time-consuming litigation."

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's Industrial Commission has committed more than $5 million toward research aimed at storing carbon dioxide from coal-fired power plants. The University of North Dakota's Energy and Environmental Research Center will lead the 14-month study that also will look at cleaner technology to make electricity from the state's lignite. It also will study whether carbon dioxide could be used to boost oil output in some fields.

     DUNSEITH, N.D. (AP) - Budget cuts in North Dakota are causing a tourist attraction that straddles the U.S.-Canadian border to initiate new fundraising efforts. The Bismarck Tribune reports the International Peace Garden is losing about $48,000 in operating grants since the declining revenues in the state have led to 10 percent budget cuts this funding cycle. The garden's staff is asking the public for donations and encouraging people to purchase annual or lifetime memberships.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A federal judge has blocked a new North Dakota law meant to protect farm equipment dealers. Four major manufacturers of farm implements have filed a lawsuit challenging the law that permits North Dakota implement dealers to sell generic rather than name-brand replacement parts. They say the law is unconstitutional. The order directs sate Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem to refrain from enforcing the measure until the issue can be resolved.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's state-owned flour mill's annual profit rebounded slightly a year after the Grand Forks factory sustained big losses due to depressed wheat prices. The mill reported today making $9.7 million during its last budget year, which ended in June. That's up from $9.3 million profit set the prior year. The mill set a record $16.7 million profit three years ago.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Participants in a public fossil dig south of Bismarck last week found two large Tyrannosaurus rex teeth, each of them setting records for the North Dakota Geological Survey.
 
     Officials say the first tooth measured about 2.5 inches long. The second tooth, found less than an hour later and only a few feet from where the first tooth was round, measured 4.5 inches long. The teeth were the ninth and 10th ones discovered from the dig site in the last three years. Casts of the teeth will be on display in Bismarck's Heritage Center in the coming weeks.
 
     Paleontologist Jeff Person says the discoveries have received national publicity and he expects that to increase interest in the digs next summer.
