Today's Thought

The best we can hope for in this life is a knothole peek at the shining realities ahead. Yet a glimpse is enough. It's enough to convince our hearts that whatever sufferings and sorrows currently assail us aren't worthy of comparison to that which waits over the horizon.

North Dakotans are remembering this Patriots Day....

    BISMARCK, N.D. - North Dakotans are remembering this Patriots Day.

    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.

    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.

    BISMARCK, ND - The North Dakota adjutant general will host a Remembrance Pray Service today at 7 pm to honor North Dakota's fallen service members and their families. Prior to the ceremony, people are invited to participate in an "Old Glory" run/walk/bike/blade, which will begin at Bismarck's Pioneer Park at 6 p.m. and end at the Global War on Terrorism memorial. The memorial is located at the entrance to Fraine Barracks in Bismarck. Both events are free to the public.

    MINOT AIR FORCE BASE, ND - Health officials at the Minot Air Force Base have been notified by state health officials of a positive case of bacterial meningitis in a child.

    According to the base's Facebook page, the child does not currently attend any Minot Air Force Base Youth and Child programs, such as family child care or the Child Development Center. The child has been in her or his home, and those who have been in contact with the child have been identified and informed of protective actions. The toddler is currently in ICU at a Fargo hospital.

    The germs that cause the disease can be spread by close contact with saliva or respiratory secretions from one person to another. Symptoms can include being slow or inactive, vomiting, and low appetite. Health officials recommended getting vaccinated, as the most effective way to protect against certain types of bacterial meningitis.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A judge has sided with a family in a lawsuit over oil and gas mineral rights under a Missouri River reservoir. The Bismarck Tribune reports Northwest District Judge Paul Jacobson issued the decision late last week after the state Supreme Court reversed his initial ruling and sent the case back for further consideration.

    The lawsuit centers around who owns the mineral interest under land that the federal government acquired from the Wilkinson family in 1958 as part of the Garrison Dam project that created Lake Sakakawea.

    The judge initially sided with the state, and the family appealed. The family argued it was unconstitutional for the state to take the mineral rights. A family attorney says the decision could impact hundreds of mineral owners with interests under Lake Sakakawea.
