TODAY'S THOUGHT

As Christians we can spend our time debating other Christians about insignificant differences, or we can focus our energy on reaching people who desperately need Christ – but not both.

Minot City Manager Tom Barry says the city is receiving more than $6 million from the state in so-called hub city funding...

     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - Administrators of a city in the North Dakota oil patch say residents should get a break on property taxes in 2020, due in large part to help from the state Legislature.
 
     The Daily News reports that Minot City Manager Tom Barry says the city is receiving more than $6 million from the state in so-called hub city funding, which designates a small percentage of oil and natural gas production money and distribution taxes to Minot, Williston and Dickinson.
 
     That is more than double the total that Minot was allocated in the last session. Without that, Barry says, the city's financial outlook would "look very different."
 
     Many Minot residents were upset by a considerable property tax increase last year.

      BURLINGTON, N.D. (AP) - The co-director of Ward County's emergency management department in North Dakota is under investigation for allegedly using an office credit card for personal expenses.
 
     KXMB-TV reports Christina Weber was placed on leave without pay Friday during a special county commission meeting while the charges against her are investigated. Officials told her that her salary would be put in escrow for possible payment if she's reinstated.
 
     Weber briefly addressed the county board asking for an explanation but then said she would seek legal counsel when she was asked if she knew what the situation involved. Weber was appointed to her position in March.

    WEST FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Officials say a 38-year-old man who was a passenger in a Honda Civic died when the car collided with parked vehicles in West Fargo.
 
     The North Dakota Highway Patrol says the crash happened about 2:30 a.m. Sunday. A 34-year-old man who was driving the car veered into the wrong lane and struck a parked pickup truck and pushed the truck into a parked car.
 
     The passenger was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver was taken to a Fargo hospital. His condition is not known.
 
     The patrol says all three vehicles had extensive damage. The parked vehicles were not occupied at the time of the crash.
 
     Names of the two men have not been released.

    BISMARCK, N.D. - Gov. Doug Burgum says registration is now open for the third annual Governor's Summit on Innovative Education on Aug. 14-15 at Jamestown High School in Jamestown. The summit brings together local and national leaders in education to share best practices and engage with educators, administrators, parents and students. It is open to the public.

    This year's summit is being held in partnership with the North Dakota Department of Public Instruction, North Dakota Council of Educational Leaders, ND United, North Dakota School Boards Association and the state Department of Human Services' Behavioral Health Division. The event is sponsored by the Bush Foundation.

    Day 1 of the summit will continue to focus on innovative instructional best practices to personalize learning, as well as other community-derived solutions to best prepare young people for the 21st century economy and global citizenship. Educators from across the state will be presenting TEDx-like talks sharing initiatives in their districts targeted at better supporting student learning. Local presenters will be announced throughout July in anticipation of the summit.

    Day 2 will focus on behavioral health in an educational setting. School personnel play a key role in identifying the early warning signs of an emerging mental health condition and in linking students with effective services and supports.

    "Schools provide a unique opportunity to identify behavioral health conditions and support students where they already are," said Pam Sagness, director of the Behavioral Health Division. "There are many opportunities for the behavioral health system and the education system to collaborate in a meaningful way."

    The registration form is available at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/2019-governors-summit-on-innovative-education-registration-62280965043.

    Burgum also has extended the deadline for submitting nominations for speakers and awards to be presented during the summit.

    To nominate someone as a Day 1 speaker at the summit, fill out a nomination form by June 27 https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScYTwPUpKB42T7jgpwvNYeLEYHiUNW8_pAH7s5boR9AG2iujQ/viewform.

    Nominations also are being accepted through June 27 for the #InnovativeND education awards, which recognize the great work being done by educators to prepare students for success in a global economy being driven by rapid technological change. By recognizing and sharing best practices across the state, North Dakota can celebrate the national-caliber experts working in its schools and encourage innovation as the rule rather than the exception. Excellence will be recognized at the student, classroom, building and district levels. #InnovativeND award nominations may be submitted at https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSditzstUzfKmewALUvfMJochdhI0tqLlKcuBR7zdIz7tJeWBg/viewform.
