TODAY'S THOUGHT

We can always find something to be thankful for, and there may be reasons why we ought to be thankful for even those dispensations which appear dark and frowning.

Authorities say a man died and a woman was injured in a head-on collision near New Town....

     NEW TOWN, N.D. (AP) - Authorities say a man died and a woman was injured in a head-on collision near New Town. The accident happened before noon on Tuesday. The North Dakota Highway Patrol says a 31-year-old man driving a Chevrolet Spark crossed the center line of state Highway 23 and struck a Ford pickup driven by a 59-year-old woman. The man, who is from New Town, died at the scene. The woman, from Seligman, Missouri, was transported to a Minot hospital for medical treatment.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Supreme Court has ruled that the McKenzie County Commission overstepped its authority when it disciplined a lieutenant in its sheriff's department. The Bismarck Tribune reports the Supreme Court ruled that the commission can't restrict or remove a sheriff's authority.
 
     The district court previously denied McKenzie County Sheriff Gary Schwartzenberger's request to prohibit the commission from placing Lt. Michael Schmitz on unpaid administrative leave. Schmitz was placed on leave following an investigation into bullying allegations. An interim sheriff fired him for an unrelated disciplinary reason.
 
     The commission also had petitioned to remove Schwartzenberger from office, But he was reinstated as sheriff Aug. 4 after Gov. Doug Burgum dismissed a months-long proceeding. Schwartzenberger currently faces charges for unauthorized use of county credit cards.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Authorities say a Mandan man charged in a prostitution sting last spring is accused of trying to lure a minor girl for sex this week. Court records say 42-year-old Michael Keller communicated online with an undercover Bismarck police officer posing as a 15-year-old girl. Prosecutors say Keller arranged to meet the girl in a parking lot after school Monday, but was met instead by police.
 
     Keller is on probation after pleading guilty in July to prostitution charges. He was one of 18 men arrested last May in a prostitution sting. He received a suspended jail sentence. The Bismarck Tribune says a judge has set bond at $1,000 for Keller who's now facing a felony charge of using a computer to lure a minor. Court records do not list an attorney for Keller.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota wildlife officials are reducing the number of bighorn sheep hunting licenses available this year as they continue to see the impacts of disease on the western herd.
 
     The Game and Fish Department is making five of the once-in-a-lifetime licenses available, three fewer than last year. The decision came after the agency's annual summer survey found 83 rams in the western Badlands, 21 fewer than in 2016. Big Game Management Biologist Brett Wiedmann says the 20 percent decline in rams is tied to an outbreak of bacterial pneumonia that surfaced in 2014 and killed dozens of sheep.
 
     Bighorn hunting is big in North Dakota. More than 13,200 hunters have applied for a license this year. The bighorn season opens Nov. 3 and closes Dec. 31.
