God's grace does not come to people who morally outperform others, but to those who admit their failure to perform and who acknowledge their need for a Savior.

Voters in the Des Lacs-Burlington school district have approved an $11.9 million bond issue for school construction and renovation....

      MINOT, N.D. (AP) - Voters in the Des Lacs-Burlington school district have approved an $11.9 million bond issue for school construction and renovation. 62-percent of voters said yes in Tuesdays election. 60-percent was needed to pass.

    Voters narrowly defeated a $15.4 million bond referendum in April.
 
     The bond issue will pay for a junior high school wing for the high school in Des Lacs. Seventh- and eighth-graders who currently attend school in Burlington will move to Des Las in the fall of 2019. That will enable the district to offer them more classes, such as art and vocational agriculture. The district also will renovate classrooms at the elementary in Burlington and build a kindergarten wing.
 
     The district has 675 students in grades K-12.

There have been no protests since February, but the decision Tuesday will allow a lawsuit to proceed in which pipeline opponents allege they were subjected to police brutality and their civil rights were violated. The lawsuit seeking unspecified damages has been on hold for nine months.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The state-owned Bank of North Dakota is getting out of the federal student loan business. Bank President Eric Hardmeyer says the move will enable the bank to focus on its own student loan program, which has been growing. The bank is selling the federal portfolio to the nonprofit North Texas Higher Education Authority. The sale won't affect borrowers' interest rates, payment amounts or due dates.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's first family won't be having Thanksgiving dinner at the new governor's mansion. Capitol Facilities Manager John Boyle says officials had hoped for Gov. Doug Burgum to move into a new home by next week. But he says construction of the new 13,600-square-foot home is running a few weeks behind schedule. Boyle says the completion date is now set for next month.

    The Legislature authorized $4 million from the state's Capitol Building Fund and $1 million from private donations to construct the building. Boyle says about $850,000 in private money has been raised so far. Supporters say building a new official home for the governor was more cost-effective than renovating the current mansion, which will be torn down.
