Today's Thought

God's definition of what matters is pretty straightforward. He measures our lives by how we love.

Gov. Doug Burgum has directed all government agencies to fly the United States and North Dakota flags at half-staff today....

    BISMARCK, N.D. - Gov. Doug Burgum has directed all government agencies to fly the United States and North Dakota flags at half-staff today, and encouraged North Dakota residents to do the same, in honor of those who lost their lives in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

    The governor's directive is in accordance with a joint resolution of Congress authorizing and requesting the President to designate Sept. 11 of each year as Patriot Day and direct flags to be lowered to half-staff for the entire day. Americans also are encouraged to observe a moment of silence at 7:46 a.m. Central Daylight Time to honor the nearly 3,000 victims of the attacks.

    "Our nation was forever changed by the tragic events of Sept. 11, 2001, but the courage and heroism displayed by the firefighters, police officers, EMTs and rescue workers who risked their lives to save others endures in our dedicated first responders and military servicemembers," Burgum said. "Today we honor these brave souls and remember those who perished in the attacks, while keeping in our prayers the loved ones they left behind who continue to grieve their tremendous loss."

    To honor and remember each of the 343 New York Fire Department firefighters who gave their lives on Sept. 11, 2001, the 2019 North Dakota 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb will take place from 9 a.m. to noon Friday, Sept. 13, at the state Capitol in Bismarck. Registration begins at 8 a.m. The stair climb funds programs provided by the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation to support families of local fallen firefighters and the FDNY Counseling Services Unit. Lt. Gov. Brent Sanford will be among the speakers to address the climbers at 9 a.m.


     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - The union representing public school teachers in North Dakota's largest city is taking the school board to court over a stalemate on contract negotiations. KFGO radio reports that the Fargo Education Association believes the board broke state law by declaring an impasse without union approval. The teachers want a judge to order the board to resume contract talks. Teacher safety and pay are issues that have separated the two sides. Teachers in North Dakota do not have the right to go on strike. Court documents do not list an attorney for the Fargo School Board.

    MANDAN, N.D. - The Morton County Sheriff's Office was involved in a high-speed chase Monday evening that resulted in two men with warrants being arrested and charged with various crimes to include Reckless Endangerment, Fleeing in a Motor Vehicle, Possession of Methamphetamine and Driving under Suspension in Morton County.

    On Monday at approximately 5:50 p.m., a deputy attempted to pull over a vehicle exceeding the speed limit along County Road 139 near Hebron. The driver of the vehicle did not stop and headed east toward Interstate 94. The wet road conditions and the vehicle's high speed caused the vehicle to do a 360-degree spin on the east-bound ramp at Exit 102 before continuing onto Interstate 94. The vehicle weaved in and out of traffic and swerved between traffic lanes at speeds exceeding 100 mph along the Interstate. Near Exit 136, additional deputies and the North Dakota Highway Patrol placed spike strips that flattened the front tires of the vehicle and it came to a stop near mile marker 139.

    The driver, 24-year-old Michael Martinez, Jr. of Dickinson, was placed under arrest for Reckless Endangerment, Fleeing in a Motor Vehicle, and Driving under Suspension. He also had a Burleigh County bench warrant. His passenger, 25-year-old Austin Whitelightning of Bismarck, was found to have two Burleigh County warrants and was placed under arrest. The remaining passenger was not arrested.

    Upon searching the vehicle, containers containing marijuana and methamphetamine were found in addition to drug paraphernalia. Martinez and Whitelightning were transported to the Burleigh-Morton Detention Center.


     BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - Attorneys for the Trump administration want a US judge to throw out a lawsuit from Native American tribes trying to block the proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline from Canada to Nebraska. Tribes in Montana and South Dakota say President Donald Trump approved the pipeline in March without considering potential damage to cultural sites from spills and construction. The judge will preside over a Thursday hearing on the government's attempt to dismiss the case.
