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.

     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - A Minot woman will serve nearly a year behind bars for taking part in a robbery and throwing a burning cigarette in the face of a police officer. Thirty-five-year-old Heather Travnicek pleaded guilty Monday to taking part in the robbery of a man at a hotel in January and to assaulting the officer when she was arrested in February. The Minot Daily News reports that Judge Stacy Louser sentenced Travnicek to serve 300 days in jail and then three years on supervised probation.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum says he and Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton have agreed to see if technical changes can be made to restart a $2.2 billion flood diversion project around the Fargo-Moorhead area. Burgum says he and Dayton talked by phone Tuesday "to try to find a path forward" for the Red River diversion project.
 
     The 30-mile channel has been approved by Congress and work had begun on an inlet structure southwest of the Fargo area. But a federal judge from Minnesota halted all construction because the project does not have the necessary permits from Minnesota.
 
     Minnesota's Department of Natural Resources has raised concerns including about upstream impacts of the project. Dayton didn't immediately comment on the discussion.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - All of the 13 suspects arrested in what authorities believe is the first large-scale Jamaican lottery scam to be prosecuted in the U.S. have now entered pleas in federal court.

    Two suspects who had been awaiting extradition in Jamaica were brought to the U.S. earlier this month and entered not guilty pleas in North Dakota, where the case began more than five years ago. A judge is deciding whether to add them to a list of suspects scheduled for trial in January. That list has been shrinking, as five of the 15 defendants in the case have reached deals with prosecutors to plead guilty. Two suspects remain fugitives.

    Authorities allege the scam bilked at least 90 mostly elderly Americans out of more than $5.7 million.

    BISMARCK, N.D. - Gov. Doug Burgum met Tuesday with community leaders and residents in Beulah and Hazen, kicking off a series of meetings on his Main Street Initiative to determine how the state can best assist communities in promoting smart, efficient infrastructure development and creating healthy, vibrant main streets to help attract and retain a skilled workforce.

    The roundtable discussions focused on challenges and opportunities tied to filling more than 13,000 job openings in North Dakota, the rapidly changing global market and the need to create fiscally sound, attractive communities to compete in a 21st century economy. Burgum also emphasized that the pillars of his Main Street Initiative are already being applied in some North Dakota communities, noting that efforts to maximize existing infrastructure, build the tax base through a mixed-use, infill building approach, and create unique and vibrant downtowns are becoming standard guidelines for community planning.

    "The Main Street Initiative, which is based on sound community planning principles, will give local leaders access to a variety of resources, helping capitalize on strengths and support sound planning decisions," Burgum said. "By helping community leaders understand the data elements necessary for building and maintaining existing infrastructure, and providing resources to help towns of all sizes attract and retain workforce, we will position North Dakota to compete and succeed in a global economy."

    Lt. Gov. Brent Sanford, who formerly was mayor of Watford City, also participated in the meetings along with members of the governor's cabinet and staff and representatives from the Bank of North Dakota and state Department of Commerce.

    "Communities are excited to showcase their unique attributes and experience the tangible benefits that Main Street provides," Sanford said. "Our team is working in concert with local leaders to shape the future of North Dakota by facilitating resources and creating plans to help businesses grow and communities thrive."

    Input gathered from the meetings will be used to help develop a resource toolkit for communities that are looking to enhance their economies, infrastructure and attractiveness to help recruit and retain workers and improve quality of life.
