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.

President Donald Trump is promoting his tax overhaul pitch on a visit this afternoon to North Dakota....

     WASHINGTON (AP) - President Donald Trump is promoting his tax overhaul pitch on a visit this afternoon to North Dakota. On Twitter today, Trump says he'll "discuss tax reform and tax cuts." He adds: "we are the highest taxed nation in the world - that will change."
 
     The president, who has offered few specifics on the plan, met with Republican congressional leaders Tuesday to discuss the tax efforts. Trump and congressional Republicans say they want to simplify the tax code, lowering the rate for corporations from the current 15-35 percent range, and bringing relief for the middle class.
 
     At a rally in Mandan, Trump is expected to promote the plan as an opportunity for bipartisanship. North Dakota's congressional delegation will make the trip to North Dakota with Trump on Air Force One. Democratic Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, Republican Sen. John Hoeven and Republican Rep. Kevin Cramer will be traveling with the president today.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The backdrop for President Donald Trump's visit to North Dakota today is a refinery that processes up to 74,000 barrels a day of the state's crude oil into gasoline, diesel fuel, jet fuel and more. The Andeavor facility in Mandan is the largest of two refineries that the company - until recently known as Tesoro - operates in the state. The Mandan and Dickinson facilities together refine about 10 percent of the oil produced in North Dakota.
 
     It's no surprise that Andeavor would be eager to host Trump, a staunch supporter of oil and coal who helped push through the Dakota Access pipeline soon after taking office. A review of federal campaign finance reports found no direct contributions from the company's political action committee to Trump. But the company has given $5,000 each to Democratic Sen. Heidi Heitkamp and GOP Rep. Kevin Cramer - who might face off in a Senate race next year.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Bismarck police are looking to the city attorney's office for guidance after officers responded to a report of sheep being slaughtered in an apartment complex parking area.
 
     Authorities say a Muslim couple was performing a religious ceremony with the sheep on Friday. No arrests were made, and the couple will not face charges. However, livestock aren't allowed in city limits, and police want to know how to handle such incidents in the future.
 
     Lt. Steven Scheuer tells The Bismarck Tribune that police want to be respectful of people's religious beliefs but at the same time need to consider all of the circumstances in such incidents, including the environment in which it occurs.

     GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - Grand Forks police say they've made an arrest in a stabbing at an apartment earlier this week. Authorities are recommending charges of attempted murder, aggravated assault, burglary and criminal trespass against a 29-year-old man. A man and woman were stabbed at the apartment on Monday. Their conditions haven't been released. Police said Wednesday a citizen tip about a suspicious person seen entering the apartment building led to the man's arrest.

     WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - The city of Williston has officially dedicated its $105 million wastewater treatment plant. The facility replaces city's old lagoon system that struggled to keep up with demand as Williston's population rose with the oil boom. Project manager Jason Benson says the plant can handle a population of up to 60,000 people, with the ability to expand even more if necessary. Construction began in 2014 and the plant became fully operational earlier this summer. A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held late last week.
