Today's Thought

The reason I am alive today in NOT because in my darkest days I held on to God. It's because in my darkest days God held on to me. It is HIS faithfulness that is great, not ours.

North Dakota officials say an invasive mollusk has reached the waters of a major state lake....

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota officials say an invasive mollusk has reached the waters of a major state lake. WDAY-TV reports Sunday that officials at Lake Ashtabula have confirmed they have an infestation of zebra mussels.  
 
     The state's Department of Natural Resources says the small mussels reproduce quickly and consume the food sources needed by the lake's natural fish population. It makes the water appear clearer but it disturbs the lake's ecosystem. Area Fisheries Supervisor Nathan Olson says zebra mussels eat parts of the food chain needed by other small organisms and fish.
 
     Zebra mussels have been in North Dakota waters since 2015 and in Minnesota Lakes for about 10 years.

    The award is given to an individual who has consistently worked to promote the safety of young people, thereby directly benefiting the members of SADD chapters across the country.

    "Students Against Destructive Decisions plays a critical role in North Dakota and the country by empowering youth to be leaders and take action to transform their communities," Burgum said. "I am grateful to be recognized by such a proactive organization committed to solutions for the challenges that many youths are facing like addiction and stigma."

    Burgum will receive the Outstanding Contribution Award and deliver remarks to the national conference during the SADD Awards Luncheon at 2:30 p.m. Central at the Hyatt Regency at Gainey Ranch in Scottsdale. The master of ceremonies for the luncheon will be North Dakota native and current Valley City State University student Lauren Roscoe, who serves as national president and Student of the Year for SADD.

     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.
