TODAY'S THOUGHT

That little voice in your head telling you the situation is hopeless or that you're worthless is a fear-mongering liar. Listen to the voice of your Good Shepherd. He speaks grace and truth!

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota House has approved a Senate bill that forbids local governments from imposing longer setbacks than the state's rules for livestock feeding operations. Representatives passed the amended bill on Monday. The legislation now goes to a conference committee. Opponents say the legislation takes away local control for managing feedlots. Backers say it will help the state's livestock industry and crop producers who sell feed to the operations.

     JAMESTOWN, N.D. (AP) - A farm aid nonprofit is bringing more hay from North Dakota to producers in flood-stricken Nebraska. The North Dakota-based Farm Rescue recently activated "Operation Hay Lift" to haul livestock feed to Nebraska ranchers affected by high water. A similar program was first used nearly two years ago to help cattle producers facing drought conditions in the Upper Midwest.

    The hay convoy departed from the Walmart parking lot in Jamestown on Sunday afternoon. Farm Rescue official expected to send as many as 10 semitrailer trucks of hay donated by local farmers. The trucks were expected to arrive in Elkhorn, Nebraska on Sunday night. Farm Rescue helps farm and ranch families in North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska and Iowa.
