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.

     CANDO, N.D. (AP) - A Cando woman who had been reported missing was found deceased in a car that was submerged in a coulee. The Towner County Sheriff's Department says it was looking for a 31-year-old woman, who was reported missing around midnight. Her car was found at 7 a.m. Friday, submerged in the ravine about 11 miles west of Cando, just north of state Highway 17. Her name has not been released.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Petroleum Council and state officials say a new oilfield safety training program, 18 months in the making, will be a time-saver for tens of thousands of contract workers.
 
     Council president Ron Ness says 50 oil companies worked on the standards for the One Basin-One Way curriculum which aims to save time for oilfield contractors who often sit through multiple, redundant safety trainings on workplace hazards in a year. North Dakota's oilfield has about 32,000 contracted employees.
 
     The Bismarck Tribune says the two-part program involves four hours of classroom instruction, followed by refresher training the next year and then repeats. The training network TrainND Northwest in Williston and the North Dakota Safety Council will conduct the orientations in Bismarck, Dickinson, Fargo, Minot, Watford City and Williston.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Gov. Doug Burgum says a voter referendum to repeal a budget provision for a proposed Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Library would likely have a "low chance" of passing.
 
     Those who oppose the Legislature's approval of $50 million to operate and maintain the library in Medora are petitioning to place a referendum on the June 2020 primary ballot to repeal the state funding, which must be matched by $100 million in private money.
 
     The Bismarck Tribune reports one opponent, Riley Kuntz, says the library is a "gross misappropriation of funds" for a project that honors a president who wasn't even from North Dakota.   
 
     Roosevelt spent four years on a ranch in the North Dakota Badlands while in his 20s. The area is now a national park and the state's top tourist attraction.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The operator of the Dakota Access pipeline is planning to nearly double its capacity. Energy Transfer Partners plans to expand the pipeline's capacity from more than 500,000 barrels per day to as much as 1.1 million barrels. ETP told the state Public Service Commission in a letter Wednesday that the expansion will let the company meet growing demand without needing additional pipelines or needing to ship by rail.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's female prison population has reached capacity, leaving some inmates in the custody of counties. The Bismarck Tribune reports that the state's female prison population reached capacity for the first time in May.  Under 2017 legislation, county inmates are transferred to state prisons based on the severity of crimes, medical needs and other factors. Last week, only six of 12 inmates intended for movement from county to state were admitted.
