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.

Sen. Heidi Heitkamp says she'll seek a second term in the U.S. Senate.....

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Sen. Heidi Heitkamp says she'll seek a second term in the U.S. Senate. Heitkamp, a Democrat who narrowly won her seat in 2012, had been widely expected to make another run. She made her announcement today on her brother Joel Heitkamp's Fargo-based radio talk show on KFGO-AM.

    Heitkamp, 61, has stockpiled $3 million for what's expected to be an expensive and hard-fought campaign to retain a Democratic seat in a strongly conservative state that Republicans think they can win. President Donald Trump carried the state by 36 points last year and remains popular.

    State Sen. Tom Campbell is the only candidate declared so far on the Republican side, but U.S. Rep. Kevin Cramer is also weighing a run.

    BISMARCK, N.D. - The North Dakota Department of Health (NDDoH) urges residents, especially those with respiratory conditions, to consider limiting prolonged outdoor activities while smoky conditions remain across the region.

    Wildfires in western Montana are sending smoke across North Dakota and other parts of the United States. Particulate matter climbed overnight to elevated levels across North Dakota, with the highest levels found in the western and central portions of the state. Particulate matter consists of extremely small particles of ashes and soot found in the air.

    Particulate matter can be irritating to the respiratory system, especially for those who suffer from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or conditions such as asthma and allergies. The NDDoH advises people with respiratory conditions, the elderly and young children to limit prolonged outdoor exposure. People reacting to smoke to the extent that it is affecting breathing should seek immediate help from a medical provider.

    For up-to-date information on the region's current air quality and tips on respiratory protection during a smoke event, visit http://www.ndhealth.gov/AQ/Wildfire.aspx.
