TODAY'S THOUGHT

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.

North Dakota's oil production rose slightly in September and remained above 1 million barrels per day for the eighth consecutive month....

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's oil production rose slightly in September and remained above 1 million barrels per day for the eighth consecutive month. The Department of Mineral Resources says the state produced an average of 1.1 million barrels of oil daily in September. That's up from 1.08 million barrels in August.
 
     North Dakota also produced 1.94 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day in September, which equaled August production.
 
     There were a record 14,190 producing wells in September, up 101 from August.
 
     The September tallies are the latest figures available.
 
     There were 55 drill rigs operating in North Dakota today, down one from the September average.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota legislative leaders will review anti-sexual harassment policies for state lawmakers. The Legislative Procedure and Arrangements Committee will meet Dec. 6 at the Capitol to discuss the policies that have been in place for almost 30 years.
 
     Republican House Majority Leader Al Carlson of Fargo heads the bipartisan committee of legislative leaders. He says the time is right to review - and perhaps update - the state's polices since many allegations of sexual harassment are coming to light in political and entertainment circles. Carlson and other North Dakota legislative leaders say they are not aware of any sexual harassment allegations ever occurring in the Legislature. Carslon says sexual harassment won't be tolerated.

     BOWBELLS, N.D. (AP) - Grammy-winning rock singer Melissa Etheridge has pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of possessing marijuana in North Dakota. An attorney for the California musician entered the plea on her behalf Tuesday. Under a proposed order, Etheridge would pay a fine of $750 and serve unsupervised probation.
 
     Etheridge was arrested in August when investigators found marijuana on her tour bus as it crossed from Canada into the U.S. Etheridge, who is a cancer survivor, has said she believes in the medicinal applications of cannabis. KMOT-TV reports Etheridge's attorney says the musician intended to apply for a medical marijuana license in North Dakota. State officials are setting up a medical marijuana system after voters approved it last year, but don't expect the drug to be available to patients until late next year.

     FORTUNA, N.D. (AP) - This year's drought in North Dakota has stalled the full reclamation of a Cold War-era military facility in the northwest corner of the state. The Fortuna Air Force Station's reclamation process is nearly complete. Dozens of buildings have been demolished, and materials have been recycled and removed. But full reclamation depends on grass seeding of an inert waste disposal pit.
 
     The Bismarck Tribune reports that the state Department of Health won't close the disposal until grass grows on top of it. Seeding in July didn't take because of the drought. Workers have seeded again and cleaning up the area. Full reclamation is expected in 2018.
 
     The base was used as a radar facility during the Cold War but abandoned in 1984. The only remaining building is a five-story radar tower.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A New York woman who suffered a serious arm injury while protesting the Dakota Access pipeline in North Dakota is preparing for her fifth surgery, even while she's still under investigation.

    Sophia Wilansky was injured in an explosion during a violent clash between protesters and police last November. Protesters allege the blast was caused by a concussion grenade thrown by officers. Police maintain it was caused by a propane canister protesters rigged to explode.

    Recently unsealed court documents indicate the government last spring sought evidence that might implicate Wilansky by searching her Facebook account. Eight months later, no charges have been filed against her. Federal authorities say the investigation is ongoing.

    Wilansky's father says she has limited use of her left arm and hand. She's scheduled for another surgery Dec. 12.
