Today's Thought

Your greatest asset becomes your greatest liability if you don't use it for God's purposes! That's how assets become idols, and our idolatry leads to heartbreak because we put our trust in something that cannot deliver.

While on patrol this summer, Minot Police Officers will be looking for kids wearing helmets. If caught, a child may find themselves making a trip to a local Dairy Queen restaurant. As part of AAA's "I Got Caught" campaign, as many as 12,000 North Dakota youth will be written a 'citation' for a free small DQ cone for wearing a helmet while biking, skateboarding or in-line skating.

According to a recent Centers for Disease Control and Prevention study, helmets reduced overall head injuries by about 60 percent and reduced fatalities by about 73 percent. The study also found that law enforcement and other safety officials can reinforce the need to wear a helmet through positive interactions such as free or discounted helmet distribution programs and incentives for helmet use.

The City of Minot Fire Department is conducting its annual fire hydrant quality assurance program with hydrant testing scheduled for Tuesday mornings between 8:30 a.m. and Noon.

This year, the program consists of inspecting and flowing fire hydrants west of Broadway and north of Central Avenue. National fire standards recommend these tests to insure hydrants are in proper working order in case they are needed in an emergency.

When hydrants are flowed, iron deposits in the water lines are stirred up, which can cause a brown discoloration in the water. This condition is temporary and will correct itself in a few hours. On the days when hydrants are flowed, residents are recommended to let their cold water run for a short time to make sure it's clear before using it. The water is safe to drink, but it is recommended residents do not wash any white clothes on mornings when the hydrants are flushed. Also said it's best to limit the use of hot water until it runs clear to help stop iron deposits from settling into your water heater.

The locations of the areas being tested each week will be listed on the City of Minot's website at If residents have questions or concerns, please contact the Minot Water De-partment at 857-4150 or the Minot Fire Department at 857-4740.

Vitalant, the nation's largest nonprofit, independent blood collector, serving as the sole blood provider to nearly 70 hospitals across the Dakotas and western Minnesota, has declared a critical shortage of blood as supplies have been significantly impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. Shelter-in-place orders led to more than 400 blood drives cancelled since early March in our region alone, resulting in a loss of more than 9,000 uncollected blood donations. That, coupled with a resumption of surgeries and other medical procedures as stay-at-home restrictions were lifted, has caused a 25% increase in the need for blood during the past several weeks.

All blood types are critically needed right now, with an especially high need for type O, A-negative and B-negative red blood cells. In addition, platelets are always needed by patients for cancer treatments, surgeries and emergencies. Because of its short shelf life—only 5 days—the supply of platelets must be continually replenished.

Donors are strongly urged to give blood as soon as possible by going online to or calling 877-258-4825 (877-25-VITAL).

Free COVID-19 testing is planned for Wednesday, June 3rd, from 12:00 – 4:00 pm at the North Dakota State Fairgrounds in Minot. Any member of the public can be tested during this drive-through event. Essential workers such as gas station or grocery store workers are especially encouraged to come and get tested. You can be tested at this event even if you don't have any symptoms. Unlike some earlier testing, you don't have to quarantine until you get your test results; you can get tested and go on with your day. No appointment is needed – just drive in. Cloth face coverings are encouraged.

Pre-registration is not required, but it will help you get in and out faster. Instructions for pre-registration can be found at

This is a rapidly evolving situation, and it's possible the event could be changed or cancelled. Please check or watch the First District Health Unit Facebook page for updates.
